Just didn't like it... I really didn't like the POV this book was read from... (1st).... but it jumps around a bit... Confusing... Then the storyline is just.. eh!
Narration was not all that great either...

Would you listen to Vamp Camp again? Why?
Mårten (pronounced Morton) is a good ole boy from Texas. He has a stable home life and parents that love him and they know he’s gay. In fact, when he was a teenager, his mother gave him a three dollar bill to show him how queer he was. Although his parents are caring and understanding, they aren’t always emotionally available. When he graduates college he joins the Navy and ends up in a POW camp after he is captured by the Germans. Mårten has never been one to shy away from a fight, and his defiant behavior lands him in solitary confinement, of sorts. It’s while he’s confined that one of the guards rapes, assaults and bites him. Mårten wakes up in a cave with a note pinned to his shirt, “You’re a vampire, drink some blood and stay out of the sun.”
Mårten is trying to decipher why it is the sun hurts him, he can fly and jump really high and likes to drink animals dry when he meets another vampire. Menz is a centuries old vampire that lives on an estate that he runs much like a gay Peyton Place. Filled with lots of young, beautiful, sexy men (both gay and straight) that are willing blood donors. In exchange for their donation, these men live a life of luxery under the protection of Menz.
Menz takes Mårten under his wing and trains him to be a proper vampire. Menz himself is gay so he recognizes the trait in his new young trainee. On Mårten first night at the estate, Menz sets him up with a tall, handsome donor with long black hair and gorgeous blue eyes. Oberon and Mårten are instantly and insanely attracted to each other, and though they actively participate in all manners of threesomes, foursomes and orgies, they only have eyes for each other. The two start making plans to be together forever. But when one of the donors winds up slaughtered on the front lawn, their plans are put on hold. Mårten and his new found family are forced to face his demons together, and not everyone will make it out alive, much less get a ‘Happy Ever After’.
Okay so, the narration was so terrible that it was good. This kid that tells Mårten’s story goes so overboard with the Texas twang, that it’s at times laughable. But I couldn’t take out my ear plugs! The storyline was so engrossing, and Mårten’s dry, witty sense of humor coupled with Menz’s proper british appearance made for some very intriguing reading. The sex scenes between Mårten and Oberon are some of the tamest, yet hottest scenes I’ve ever read. The story at times was a bit disjointed and the fact that it was obviously an adult book, but the main character would teeter between the words but and ass drove me a little crazy, but for whatever reason I just loved this story!
This was just a fast, fun read with a young spitfire of a main character that was forced to grow up way too soon. Seriously, his favorite curse is ‘Holy!’. That’s it, just Holy! I can’t wait to see what happens next for Mårten, Oberon and Menz. Not sure if I’ll grab the second book, or wait for it to come out on audible. Stay tuned.
