If you're looking for something cute and fun, this might be a good choice for you, especially if you like light vampire lit. Milagro de los Santos is the kind of character you wish you could be for just a short time, even with all the craziness she goes through in this book. Latina heroines are hard to find in this genre, and she didn't disappoint in being smart, fun and sexy. I found this book quite charming, and read the complete book between noon and dinner time. I read fast though, so don't think this is a small book! I did find myself wavering on what male character (of a few) I wanted her to end up with, but I was by no means disappointed in the end. This book was funny, often sexy, warming, and I felt it was time well spent. I missed it a bit when I was done.

funny, rather light-hearted vampire romance/comedy written in first person. A quick, fun read.

Very tongue and cheek...a very fun read. Not too deep! Can't wait for the third book. If you enjoy Sookie or Betsy you'll love this one.

This book is so funny. The vampires are stuck-up snobs with attitudes. Main character is full of witty thoughts that will make you smile, and there is plenty of sexual tension throughout the book. Really fun to read.

A different take on the whole "vampire" story. It was cute & fun to read. My only complaint is that there were quite a few spanish phrases and/or sayings in the book, since the main character is Mexican, and I don't understand Spanish. Most of it I could basically figure out, but some I couldn't. Im one that always has to look up a word in the dictionary if I don't know the meaning, or it will drive me nuts. Didn't have a Spanish dictionary nearby HA! I will still read the rest of the series.

A thoroughly enjoyable light summer read. It's a fun new take on vampire mythology and the writing is jocular and fast-paced. There's a romance building through the book but there isn't much steaminess. Marta Acosta establishes a great set of characters whom you come to easily like and look forward to reading about in further books.

I had read this book when it first came out but recently won a signed copy and re-read it. I am so glad I did, I thoughly enjoyed the book. Milagro de los Santos is a well rounded character who I could easily see myself being friends with. The book made me laugh out loud several times gaining me some pretty funny looks from my family! You can just feel the chemistry between Milagro and Oswald and are thirsty for more! I know I am and I can't wait to read book 2 which is Midnight Brunch at Casa Dracula!
