3 out of 5


Meena Harper is a writer for the popular drama, Insatiable, but when her bosses tell her that the drama she writes for will change to something she hates, vampires, she goes crazy. Although Meena is not unfamiliar with supernatural things, since she can tell how people will die, she still doesn’t like it. Though, even with her small ability to tell a small part of the future, she still has problems with her love life because of her so-called “gift”. However, that is, until she meets Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince from Romania. They both fell in love at first sight, but is Meena in love with him or with the fact she can’t see his death? Also, does Lucien have any dark secrets that he is keeping from Meena?

Another vampire romance book. Oh, goody, but don’t worry it is kind of different from most vampire romance books out there.

Another vampire romance book, is it me, or are these vampire romance novels getting tiresome? In most of these novels, the women are wimpy and fall head over heels with the vampire. This book isn’t any different in that aspect, in fact, it is worse in that area. Several times while reading how Meena reacted to Lucien, I was banging my head over her antics. Not only is Meena’s personality similar to other books featuring supernatural things, the rest of the characters in the book were just as bad. *SIGH* They were too stereotypical for me to really enjoy the characters. I kind of wish she ended up with Wulf, instead of no one.

Also, although the details are kind of okay, the book isn’t really that enjoyable. Well, except the short parts of comedy in the book, which was kind of made the book a little bit more enjoyable. However, despite the fact I really didn’t like the book, the ending is unexpected for a vampire romance novel. Anyways, I don’t suggest reading if you don’t like the stereotypical characters in supernatural books.

*SIGHS* This book was such a disappointment. I like her young adult series The Mediator, but this book was kind of URGH.

I rated it a 3 star because of the funny parts and the unexpected ending. >.>”

Oh, I forgot to mention why it has the smut label. There isn’t detailed sex scenes, like most vampire romance books, however, there are scenes leading up to sexual intercourse. The actual sex parts are not mentioned, only the parts where it leads up to sex. >.<

I just looked up information about this book, and apparently, there will be a sequel in July 2011 named Overbite. *URGH*
