Rated: Paranormal Romance
Blind dates can be bad, but Sarah Dearly's date is a true contender for worst ever. His neck nibbling didn't just leave a bruise; it turns her into a vampire, and the newest target for a pack of zealot vampire hunters. With her date now their latest victim, Sarah runs for her immortal life--straight into Thierry de Bennicoeur, a master vampire who is just a wee bit suicidal. Thierry can't resist a damsel in distress and agrees to teach Sarah how to live the vampire life if she'll help him end his own. But as it turns out, Sarah may be his best reason for living.
What I thought:
What an enjoyable read. It wasn't amazing, it didn't rock my world, but it was fun. Sarah, our main girl here, has such an attitude, I loved it! I love sarcasm. For others it can get old fast, so fair warning, lots of sarcasm is used throughout this book.
It wasn't something I thought was totally unique. Slightly different vampires, who still have heart beats, breathe, and can walk in the sun (this didn't bother me as much as I thought it would) but still need blood. But they are all drinking from the tap now. That's right, tap. They have kegs of blood shipped in to drink from. They are also hunted by slayers who think of them as an abomination and monsters. Yeah, I saw that coming, but well, every book needs a plot.
Don't expect this novel to be super serious, take it as it is, as an entertaining, humorous novel with attitude.
Hey guys! I'm a big fan of reading and writing. I have been writing my own little reviews on shelfari and decided to try my own blog. I love all kinds of books, mystery, paranormal romance, urban fantasy, young adult, erotica, historical romances and just any romance book.
I own a Kindle and love browsing Amazon for free ebooks as well as getting my favorite authors and series on my portable library system. This has changed the way I read. I have gone to a couple books a month to a couple books a week.
