Fangs for Nothing ( The Fangover #2) by Erin McCarthy and Kathy Love

Attending their bandmate Saxon’s wedding seemed simple enough for Johnny Malone and Drake Hanover. But after waking up in a dominatrix’s dungeon, they realize their cash and cell phones have been stolen—along with the bride’s wedding dress and the groom. And then there’s the matter of the two women in the room….

Loose cannon Johnny is handcuffed to Lizette, an uptight paper pusher. She wants to help save Johnny from the horrible fate in store for him at the hands of the Vampire Alliance, but he won’t sign the paperwork. Then there’s Josie, the waifish caterer from the reception, who rescues Drake from a sex swing. Josie may be cute and make a great cupcake, but Drake knows she might also be the thief. Or it could have been that gang of drag queens all dressed as Cher….

Regardless, Johnny and Lizette need to get out of these handcuffs. Drake and Josie need to find their missing belongings. And Saxon needs to be located before the Vampire Alliance comes down on them hard….

Waking up with your friend's ass-less leather chaps clad rear hanging from a sex swing--inches from your face, while handcuffed to a French chippy intent on making you crazy, in a decked out BDSM dungeon and not a single clue how you wound up there... Worst. Hangover. Ever. lol

And what kicks off an entertaining romp through NOLA filled with gangs of Cher drag queens, random guard alligators and a creeper Domme as vampire rockers Johnny and Drake (and the women they woke up with) piece together the night after their friends oh so bizarre BDSM themed wedding-- think cat-o'-nine-tails bridal "bouquets". Yeah it was an...interesting one. And not only is everyone rather clueless on their after hours "adventures" but the groom's gone missing too.

Fangs for Nothing was one of those reads I found utterly ridiculous and completely, gloriously entertaining. You can't go into this one expecting a serious...well, anything. It's fun, light, a touch goofy and just supposed to make you smile.
"I have compromised this case, you know. I will have to return to Paris and have it reassigned. It wouldn't be ethical for me to be the one investigating your identity when I have... when we..." Liette forced herself to say it. "When we have been sexually intimate."

"At least you can verify my penis size. I'm sure the VA knows that, too."

She wanted to be offended, but it was probably true. Lizette laughed. "I would if I could remember."

"Want to check now?" Johnny put his hand on the button of his jeans, clearly joking.

"No!" She said the first thing that came to mind, a joke she normally would have kept to herself. But she let it out. "I don't have a ruler on me, so what good would that do? Though I suppose I could gauge with my mouth."

Johnny choked on his blood, actually spraying some across the banisters of the balcony. "Holy crap. I cannot believe you just said that."
McCarthy and Love did a fantastic job with both couples. Great chemistry, a couple steamy scenes, lots of humor and mix mashed personalities thrown together. The guys are laid back and sexy and the heroines feisty and independent which makes for some interesting moments as they sort things out and sorta kinda fall in love.

The whodunit style mystery kept me guessing right until the end. Which I loved. I laughed. I ::gigglesnorted:: I rolled my eyes just a bit. But then so did they. And that's what makes this one work and will have me coming back for more. If you're looking for something fun and silly that's easy to read I'd say give it a go.

Have you read McCarthy or Love?
