I was really disappointed with this book. I'm not one to stop reading a book after I start it but I was ready to put this back on the bookshelf. This was the first book I have read from Katie MacAlister, which I bought because she was recommended on the forums at Amazon.com but I just thought it was stupid. The character kept talking to herself and even though their was vampires in the story they had none of the characteristics of vampires other than they drink blood. The one vampire was so cheesy and the dialogue between the vampire and Pia was also very cheesy. In fact the dialogue throughout the book was pretty cheesy if you ask me. Their just wasn't anything to catch my attention and the whole time I reading it, I'm thinking how cheesy the storyline and dialogue is. You would be much better off picking up a Kim Harrison, PC Cast, Charlaine Harris or Stephanie Meyers book than this one.
I always look forward to the books written by Katie MacAlister, but this fell a little short on her usual. The characters were good if a little weaker than normal, but the plot was a little disjointed and I felt at the end it was cut short. Maybe to cut right into the next book. I wish she had written this one tighter and just continued, I felt like this was only 1/2 a book. Still if you like some humor with your Vampire it is a good read.
It was a cute story. I like how the main character Pia is as stubborn as myself. The only problem with the book is that she made dumb decisions that would not really happen in the real world.
I love stubborn romance novels.
I really enjoyed this book....after reading some reviews I was a bit hesitant but I found it to be funny and with just the right amount of romance. I like a heroine who starts out unsure of herself and finds her inner strength. I even enjoyed the quirky secondary characters...all in all a good read
