Review | I Want You to Want Me by Kathy Love

 Erika Todd moved to New Orleans because she needed a change --and, well, yes, because that's what the fortune teller said she would do. Not that she'd admit that to many people. But so many of the psychics predictions--about her work, even finding that stray black cat--have already come true. Now all the lonely sculptor needs to meet and fall in love with the prophesied dark-eyed prince...
Reclusive musician Vittorio Ridgewood has a new neighbor he's been trying to avoid. Sure, she's gorgeous, but she's coming on strong, and the last thing the 200-year-old vampire needs is to get involved with another mortal. Especially since several of his former human paramours have lately been turning up dead...
Sensing the relentless beauty needs someone to watch over her, Vittorio agrees to sit for a sculpture, and their attraction to one another quickly ignites. But is passion even this hot worth dying for?

Thoughts: I Want You to Want Me is the second book from Love's 'Fangs' series. A humorous, sexy and romantic read that I enjoyed. I didn't read the first one, but I was able to read this one without any confusion, as it stands alone very well. The characters are developed rather quickly and the story is fast paced, with some mystery and a little suspense. Although it is a "vampire" book, Vittorio and his brother Ren are lampirs, and thus they only take humans energy and not their blood, so there is in fact no gore. Very much like the romance novels I enjoy, except with demons and psychotic lampir mothers.
