This was NOT anywhere near as close to enjoyable as the first book. I gave up after 120 pages because I was hoping it would improve. The repetitive tackiness of the lead character got old by page 2 and I found myself rolling my eyeballs at the redundancy of the flakiness that the first book offered.

Normally, I love a well-written vamp-lite comedy, but this one borders on awful with it's bimbo of a lead character, Lil, who's more worried about her shoes than anything else. (I believe we've seen this type of character before... Betsy anyone? At least those books were more likable.) And then there's Ty, the bad-boy bounty hunter... umm... Janet Evanovichy a bit?

The majority of the characters in this book, even though they're supposed to be centuries-years-old, are quite juvenile and undeveloped. There are definitely other authors out there who are more creative and witty than this one, so I'll probably skip reading any more books by Ray due to her unoriginality. I'm really glad I didn't buy this book new and just used a PBS credit to get it.

Glad I got this one at the library - another interesting concept with an unsatisfying execution. The first book in the series left a cliff-hanger for the heroine born vampire running the dating service and a made vampire private investigator. That tease continues in this book, with a lot of useless witticisms on fashion and interspecies dating. Another installment of the characters with a few drops of romance here and there, and doses of inexplicable lust and secondary characters in sexual situations. Not recommended, this author will just continue this type of extended rambling as long as people spend money on the books - boycott this tripe and cut the weed down before it spreads.

- This is Book 2 "Dead and Dateless" of the "Dead" Series.
- Bk 1 - "Dead End Dating"
- Bk 3 - "Your Coffin or Mine?" will be the next book in the series.

- Wonderfully witty and fun! The only reason this did not receive 5 stars is the storyline was way to slow to get going and just didn't give you something to explore or think about. You know like "Who done it? Why? etc.

- Great series though! Enjoy! =)

I laughed through out the whole book. Lili is such a lovable, funny, fashion obsessed, ditzy vampire. I can't wait for the next one!

Fun..Fast paced writing style. Lil is so style conscious and HIP! What a modern girl and she's only 500 plus a few !!! If you enjoy contemporary, fun vampire romance with enough mystery to keep you turning pages..I think you will ge a kick out of this and just in time for light summer reading.
