3.0 out of 5 stars Strangely unsatisfying, 14 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Bitten And Smitten: Number 1 in series (Immortality Bites) (Mass Market Paperback)
I bought this book when it appeared in my Amazon recommends list and it definitely sounded like it would be my cup of tea. I sort of enjoyed reading it but, by the end, I felt strangely unsatisfied and a bit disappointed.
The story centres on Sarah who is turned by a vampire on a blind date. She ends up being chased by vampire hunters almost immediately and comes across Thierry, an ancient vampire, who is contemplating suicide. Sarah persuades him to rescue you her from the hunters and the story continues with them striking a deal that if he will "train her up" in the vampire lifestyle, she will help him to meet his end.

The characters are likeable enough. Sarah is fiesty and independent and Thierry is dark, brooding and yet appealing, just what you want in this genre of book. The problem I think, is that the book doesn't quite live up to being a funny, modern paranormal romance. Firstly, it's not funny enough, more mildly amusing. Secondly, while the sexual tension is present, there is not enough "resolving" if you know what I mean. I'm not looking for a total raunch-fest, but you do expect a little something! I bought the first two books together so I will give the second one a go.

So, although I wouldn't steer anyone away from reading this book, because it's not an unpleasant experience to read it, I would suggest alternatives. Try Michelle Bardsley's Broken Heart series, Gerry Bartlett's Glory St.Clair series, MaryJanice Davison's Queen Betsy series or Tate Hallaway's Garnet Lacey series before you plump for this. They are much funnier, sexier and just generally more satisfying to read.
