A Vampire Walks Into a Bar was a great quickie read that filled my Cassandra Bick fix quite nicely. It takes place right after the completion of book 1 and having read the second title as well, it answers my lingering question of what happened to Cain after he got dumped.

Cain is drinking away his pain from his recent break-up (not his choice!) with Cassandra when in walks the last person he wants to see – Laclos. There is humor but not of the zinger variety I have come to expect. This time around it was more of the sigh and eye rolling situation the guys find themselves in. Two would-be hunters out to kill vamps…vamps that they think but don’t have proof exist. Two bumbling idiots and Cain and Laclos are having to deal with. They, of course the real deal, trying to convince the the two fools that there are no such things as vamps. There’s all sorts of poking fun at the want-a-be’s using references to current pop-culture that, surprisingly, Laclos is up-to-date on. Cain…not so much.

What a treat to get to experience Cain and Laclos without any of the other characters. Nothing new with Laclos but Cain on the other hand, yes a completely different side and insight to him. We get to learn a bit of his background which just endears me to him more. I was left smiling and yet just a little sad for Cain. Laclos is is typical flirtatious self to the unwilling Cain. His flirting is going to get him into trouble one day!

This was the perfect follow-up and teaser of what is yet to come. Perfect for Cassandra fans needing a little extra between titles.
