Honestly, I only read a bit over 1/2 the book, and just couldn't force myself to finish. Kate McGraw decided to forego medical school for an internship w/ Tasty magazine. Her mom was once a fashion designer and although Kate basically hates her mother for abandoning her & her father for the "fashion world" she decides it may be a good thing for her? Go figure. So, she goes to work at Tasty magazine, which is apparently run by vampires & everyone seems to know this except her. I just found it kinda ho hum - I just really was not drawn into the story & didnt connect with the characters enough to care what happened to them. 2 of 5 stars. Would not read the next one (if there is one)

I did not like this book. It is very slow and hard to get into. The storyline is very weak. I would not recommend this book.

I actually quite enjoyed this book. Kind of if Bram Stoker wrote "The Devil Wears Prada." Very quick read, and while it was not realistic, I don't read vampire novels for their realism anyway! Definitely on the lookout for a second book. 4 Stars.

This was an interesting book - a sort of mix between _The Devil Wears Prada_ and _Dracula_... it was pretty funny and definitely more than a little silly. I did like this modern-vampire story and it certainly seems to be begging for a sequel, judging from the rather open-ending. And I think I will keep an eye out for it, as there were some rather gaping holes in the whole plot... Vampire stories are such fun, though!

A little slow to get into. Once in, it was very enjoyable. A clever, hilarious, and scary tale of a nice girl working at a fasion magazine.
