“Company policy forbids me from accepting power from customers in exchange for any product on the shelves, my blood, my soul, or my firstborn child…” When Ross started working night shift at a lonely gas station in Salem, he expected quiet nights. Instead, he found himself face to face—quite literally—with the supernatural. But really, the whimpering vampire nursing a hang “Company policy forbids me from accepting power from customers in exchange for any product on the shelves, my blood, my soul, or my firstborn child…” When Ross started working night shift at a lonely gas station in Salem, he expected quiet nights. Instead, he found himself face to face—quite literally—with the supernatural. But really, the whimpering vampire nursing a hangover wasn’t exactly threatening (although Ross is pretty sure he shouldn’t have given that energy drink to a goblin…). As Ross proves he is not easily shaken, more and more creatures of the night come calling, including the clanmaster himself. Ross isn’t sure what to think about Glenn, but the handsome vampire has made it clear what he thinks of Ross—and with that attention comes an offer he’s not sure he wants. At least, until a little fire sprite convinces him otherwise, because he’s definitely not paid enough for this. Tags: Poor put upon retail workers, Ross didn’t deserve this, Fate is cruel, so am I, sexy vampires, Australian wizards, supernats love energy drinks for some reason, the trauma of changing jobs, crack, so much crack, not a single degree of chill from Glenn where Ross is concerned, slow burn, only one gas station was harmed in the making of this story

    More!!! I want to know what happens next! Maybe I should give you a little more background -- this short story doesn't actually have any information on Ross working as a Supernat PA. It takes place while he is working third shift at a gas station convenience store. FYI, I work at a gas station convenience store, generally from early afternoon until closing, which is 11 p.m. I understand this story from the inside, at least to some extent.

We have our regular customers, people who show up for their smokes, lottery, or junk food cravings after the grocery stores have closed for the night. We thankfully do not have various supernats who get into fights inside the store (although I'd be glad to tell you about the guy that came in last week and freaked me out if you send me a pm!). Ross is an amazing guy, and he might just be my new aspiration as an employee. I need to find out what happens next for this guy!

    Short but adorable. I like all the characters and just how deadpan Ross is. His reaction to Glenn was entertaining.

    “Sir, or ma’am, or nonbinary person, I must insist you get off the ceiling.” As someone who identifies as nb, I approve, Ross. I have a very important question for you fellow urban fantasy romance readers out there: What's the deal with all these red-haired vampire LIs? All the recent vampire romances I've read featured a red-haired vampire LI. Definitely not complaining though. I'd love to see more tall-dark-handsome replaced with tall-redhair-freckled-handsone. Or any other haircolor, really. “Sir, or ma’am, or nonbinary person, I must insist you get off the ceiling.” As someone who identifies as nb, I approve, Ross.

    “Sir, or ma’am, or nonbinary person, I must insist you get off the ceiling.” This is one of those stories that is completely unexpected and catches you off guard. I'm not really a fan of the covers but don't let them fool you. This series of shorts is hilarious! Ross works in customer service. Nothing will surprise him. Not even the vampire nursing a hangover or the goblin walking across the ceiling. Still, he never expected his night shift gas station job to have such a...diverse clientele.

Not even the vampire nursing a hangover or the goblin walking across the ceiling. Still, he never expected his night shift gas station job to have such a...diverse clientele. Or for the supernats he rings up to grow so attached to him. Turns out, humans who treat them kindly are few and far between, and soon Ross is offered a job as PA to one of the local Clanmasters, an attractive vampire named Glenn. This is an ongoing serial you can read for free by signing up for AJ Sherwood's email newsletter and I really recommend you do! Weirdly I'm getting The House in the Cerulean Sea vibes; Ross reminds me a lot of Linus and watching him and Glenn play babysitter to what amounts to supernatural toddlers is freaking hilarious! Ross is so deadpan and practical despite the unbelievable situations he continues to find himself in. The tension between Ross and Glenn is also driving me crazy. I'm only a few incidents in, and I already can't wait!

    Going into this, I expected a lovely little short novella. What I got was a wild, humorous ride of witty one liners, mysterious dealings with supernatural characters and an explosive ending that I never saw coming. While this isn't my first foray into the world that AJ Sherwood created, it is a definite reminder about the kinds of world building and character development you can come to expect. This serial style story is definitely making me itch for the next in the series. Going into this, I expected a lovely little short novella.

    Ross is a human who doesn’t fluster or scare easily & he has proven himself capable of handling the supernats that stroll into the gas station at night. He’s been asked by clan master Glen to be his personal assistant. So “Incident 1” builds up the story and introduces you to this new world. It’s hilarious and worth the read. I’m super excited to read the next installment.

    A new series I’m trying out. Ross works night shift at a 24-hr gas station outside Salem where his customers are werewolves, fae, vampire, other weirder creatures and the occasional human such as himself. What is remarkable is his ability to handle this diverse clientèle with aplomb. He is being recruited to work for a clan of Vampires. He would like to become a forensic accountant.

    Not getting flustered helps when supernaturals decides to come shopping every night, and Ross have his hands full with what ever slithers, walks or crawls in to the gas station. It's a good start for the story, Ross's deadpan calm to everything that happens is what makes it funny, and I look forward to reading more about how his days are going to change now.

    Fun start to a weekly serial! A little reminiscent of Josh of the Damned with the night shift at the gas station/convenience, but that's where the similarity ends. Sets up the plan to work as a PA, promises continuing fun in future episodes! Fun start to a weekly serial!

    I remember reading the start of this short in a Pinterest writing prompt and i was like, "Damn, someone needs to write that" and here it is! Ross was absolutely phenomenal and I can't wait to read Incident 2!

    I absolutely love those kinds of books and stories. This reminds me of Josh of the Damned by Andrea Speed, and I always devore them. I'll definitely carry on with the rest of the installements, and very soon. I absolutely love those kinds of books and stories.

    I did not find this short story particularly funny, engaging or original. A typical Gary Stu trope about this amazing ordinary human (Ross) that all the supernatural fawn on because he's not scared of them. I think I'd give the rest of the series a pass.

    Cute, although this is really like the first two chapters of a book, not a story -- it doen't have the structure to stand on its own, and there's no end. Fun, though.
