That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert - he's the main course!

Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood...an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly - once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into...if he can just get Lissianna to bite.

Despite an extremely silly start and me feeling like A quick Bite was going to become a DNF, something happened – people’s lives got in danger – around the halfway point that got me really interested in the book and I ended up enjoying it. The characters, despite being hundreds if years old, are fairly childish and kinda dumb sometimes – hence the almost DNF. I enjoy humor quite a lot, but I like it to be paired with characters that are witty and intelligent.

But the story, particularly when things got dangerous, and the vampire mythology was interesting. I thought it was very unique and had lots of potential to be much better. Oh and the sex was hotter than anticipated, a definite bonus!

I would have liked to see more independent characters that thought more and it would have been a good book all the way through. As it is, it ended well and I was slightly disappointed to reach the end. I even contemplated buying the next book immediately…I probably won’t read any more of the series though. But I don’t regret finishing it, so that’s a plus!

  1. I’m still laughing at a vampire that faints at the sight of blood. Bahahaha! I’m glad the story turned around enough to be a 3 star read, but the silliness and childishness would probably wear on me. I mean, a centuries old vamp who acts like that? Meh. Like you said, doesn’t exactly make you want to rush out and get the next installment.

    • The immaturity was what got to me, but the characters and story were interesting enough to make me finish. Who knows, I may read more. But not right away!

    • It’s so hard to go into a book without anything… I’ve usually heard so much by time I pick up a book. So being surprised is different and a nice experience 🙂

    • It was a bit too silly for me at first but I really did end up enjoying it though – so I’ll probably try some more eventually.
