Description:

I treat eating pancakes on patios like it's a personality trait.

Brunch is my jam. I like the beach, shopping, carbs, and reading naughty books on the train during my commute. I wear pink. Lots of it. If Tinder were an olympic sport, I'd take home the gold. I can rock stilettos like they're a pair of Nike joggers. I'm basically basic.

I'm in the prime of my life. I've got my dream job as the head of marketing at a huge company, and I've been steadily dating myself for the better half of the last decade. I'm thirty, flirty, and thriving!

Or at least I was, until some jerk had the audacity to turn me into a vampire.

I don't do blood and doom and gloom. I sure as hell don't like sleeping in a coffin, avoiding garlic bread, and these ridiculous vamp politics. And don't get me started on Diego. He's vampire royalty and a pain in my butt. A very sexy pain in the butt. When he's not driving me crazy with all his rules, he's turning my panties into Niagara falls.

I absolutely refuse to live the rest of my immortal life in some wannabe nineties grunge music video.

THIS SUCKS

Review:

I added this as a want-to-read on Goodreads last year and now I've paid for a reduced Kindle Unlimited 6 months subscription I decided to download this one first because it seems like it might be quite fun.

This starts with Drew on a Tinder date that isn't going very well at all. She manages to scare him off and is given a note from the hot waiter to meet in the back alley, so she decides to do it. Only things take a weird turn and she wakes up in her bed the next morning with a bad headache. Waking at midnight she rings her friends and begs them to go clubbing with her where she meets Diego. He can't help but be drawn to the woman but when he explains that she's transforming into a vampire, Drew has no idea how to take it. She can't possibly be a vampire. Can she?

I did enjoy this but not as much as I expected to. I didn't always get the humour and the story was engaging but the characters acted a bit out of character at times. It affected my enjoyment a little.

That's not to say that I didn't like some of the characters. I liked Betty. She grew on me a lot. And Rocky. Diego for most of the book. I even liked Claire for a while. I think it was Drew that grated on me the most. She was all for female empowerment but she was also a bit of a brat at times. She really didn't like it when she didn't get her own way.

In a way I'm glad this doesn't have a sequel because, although Drew had mellowed out a lot by the end, she was the one thing that annoyed me with this book.
