Rhymes With Vampire: a Portero short Reviews
I've read a lot of reviews about Bleeding violet and Slice Of Cherry.Some of Dia Reeves better known works but some people act as if the book insulted there mama,beliefs,and ideals all in the same order.A lot of people complain about the main characters being promiscuous teenagers.Well heads up teenagers are hormone ridden and seek immediate gratification.Just like adults.They also complain about the gore and violence in the books.It's not very well detailed in my opinion to be scary.The horror is played for laughs.These short stories are like every other book by Dia Reeves dark and comedic and all too wonderful.The first short story titled Drag Your Dead Ass Home.Is about a young man named Trey from Portero (Dia's fictional town in Texas she has created and the setting for her previously mentioned novels.) who's girlfriend died and is haunting him.He tries everything he can to ditch her and move on.But is that what he really wants?I won't tell because I don't want to spoil it for you.But it is quite a surprise.The second short story is titled Rhymes With A Vampire about a girl in the prohibition who want's to be a vampire with her boyfriend who also happens to be hiding something important from her.The ending kinda threw me off but was still enjoyable.There is brief mentions of sex.It is also implied that the main character is promiscuous but due to insecurities of her self and looking for some love and affection which gets in the end.
Why doesn't she write a porno and be done with it?
I really enjoyed Bleeding Violet by this author, and I hope to read her other novel, Slice of Cherry, soon, but in the mean time I decided to check out her short stories. Both of these take place in the very strange town of Portero, Texas, where the unusual roams free and the citizens would rather go unnoticed.Take Your Dead Ass Home ★★★☆☆The first story in this collection definitely embodies Portero's weirdness. Trey is being haunted by his dead girlfriend, and just wants her to move on. Benni, however, is still in love with him and never wants to leave his side. Unfortunately, while Benni can still talk to Trey, she's not exactly in a human form. She's some kind of weird color-changing blob, so a relationship is out of the question! But she does come up with the perfect plan to get her boyfriend back, if not her body. This story was strange, but I like that, obviously. Benni was pretty annoying though, but her after-life situation was very creative.Rhymes With Vampire ★★★☆☆The other story is quite different from the first. It's still set in Portero, of course, but it's set during the 1920s! It doesn't really add much to the story as whole, except for the highly disturbing speakeasy where it starts out. Rebecca thinks her boyfriend is a vampire since he keeps strange hours and she saw one of his friends feeding from a human in an alley. However, Becca is terribly wrong, and the truth is not something she wants to deal with. This one was much more gory than what I've read previously from this author, but I still thought this story was a fun read. Portero is definitely an interesting place, even nearly 100 years ago.
There's some interesting stuff in the titular story around sex (I really love Reeves' treatment of sex in her books in general), but what really got me was that it's a gorgeous sendup of the "girls want bad guys because they're strong and tough" trope that showcases just how fucking ridiculous that is. Go read it.
