I really liked Tall, Dark and Lonely. It was funny, but there is a story here as well. But lawd, have a heart this story was funny. There were times when wine spewed from my lips, I should definitely charge R. L. Mathewson for a glass *furrow eyebrows*.

Ephraim Williams is a vampire, a Pyte...what you would call a day walker. He's basically hiding in this small town because there are other vamps out there who want his blood. So he has learned long ago not attach himself to humans because of their saftey and given that he has lost those he cared for during his lifetime...especially his brother Marc. But there is something different about his neighbor, Madison. Her blood sings to him and he's deathly attracted to her.

Madison has been raising her younger brother and sister since they popped out of their dead beat mother’s vajayjay. So she’s happy when her grandmother (Candy..whose the deadbeat mom..mother) steps in to help out. They move in with her at her now boarding home and she takes custody of Jill and Joshua while Madison takes the room across from one of her other boarders…they live separately from the others because that’s the way Ephriam wants it.

What did I think of the characters? Ephraim and Madison were very charismatic characters although Madison worked my nerves a lil bit. But I get why she was caution of loving someone because her mother was such mitch with a capital B. So I liked when Ephraim told her walk away from him “little girl”…hehehehe. Most male fictional characters need to do this and I understand that these are not real characters, but hey…it needs to be said, so thank you Ms. Mathewson!

The supporting characters were just as entertaining especially Chris, Ephraim and Madison's now adopted son. Lord, he had me cracking up most of the book. I’m so glad he survived and guess what?! He’s now a sentinel…did R.L write his book? *furrow eyebrows again*.

The story itself? Funny, engaging and well…down right a joy to read. This folks is a light hearted tale about two people who find each after some pretty messed up things have happened to them. They’re both kind of jaded when it comes to love, but they find it in each other.

R.L. Mathewson did a fantastic job with this story…she kept it light and oh so very funny. Definitely a must read and guess what? They’re all .99 cents, can’t beat that.
