I had great difficulty finishing this book. It dragged on and on.... I was disappointed and not sure if I'll read any more of her books.

I picked this book up at a rite aid, and was glad I did. Although I haven't read any of her other books, I didn't feel bad reading this before the other ones. It was a good read, not too steamy, but kept me up until it was finished. I am definately going to pick up some more books from this author!

Only a woman with nothing left to lose knocks on a vampire's door and asks for help. Shannah Davis is convinced that the mysterious dark-haired man she's followed for months can save her life--if he doesn't kill her first. But though Ronan insists he can't give her what she needs, his kiss unleashes a primal hunger that makes her feel truly alive for the first time.

After centuies of existence, Ronan has done the unthinkable. He has fallen in love with a mortal--and one with only weeks to live. Sensing the fear and reluctance beneath Shannah's request, he offers her a different bargain that will keep her near him during the time she has left. Every hour spent together leaves him craving her touch, her scent, her life's essence. Soon, only Shannah can satisfy his thirst. But if he saves her from death, will she love him for it--or spend eternity regretting what she has become?

Amanda Ashley writes great vampire romances. I pick her books up the day they are published and am always satisfied. Her characters are terrific and her storylines are engaging.

Boring. If you like Black Dagger Brotherhood, Sookie Stackhouse, Anita Blake, even Queen Betsy, you are going to be very disappointed in this book. With vampire romance we come to expect a few things: action, new "information" about vampire lifestyle, and sex. Even humor in some cases. Dead Perfect delivers none of that.

Dead Perfect is like the Christan Virtues answer to vampire romance. Amanda Ashley writes in a very passive style which makes it difficult to really become emotionally involved with the characters. There is no sex until marriage, a mantra repeated throughout the excruciating 380+ pages of this book. The couple finally has sex at the end but it is a couple of sentences. I guess that is what some readers prefer, just not what I would expect or look for in the genre of Vampire Romance. I suppose there may be a market for Christian Virtues Vampire Romance, and if so, this is a perfect fit.

The plot is plodding and scenes, even entire chapters read like this: ""Do you want to go outside?" "Okay let's go outside." And then they went outside."

NOTHING happens. With this popular author I wondered if she had chosen this style for this particular book or these characters. However reading excerpts of her other books in the back of Dead Perfect, it's all the same. Passive voice and little action.

Not my cuppa.

This was my first Amanda Ashley book. I am now a big fan and own many more. This is my favorite thus far. I love the connection between Ronan and Shannah. I couldn't put the book down. It moves fast enough to keep the readers interest and takes place in a few different settings. I would recommend it!
