This book was an extremely fast, fun read. I have really been wanting to read this series and I finally was able to start it up. Betsy is a pure American twenty something woman. At least she seems that way at first. She's interested in herself, shoes, and where her next paycheck is coming from. As a recently laid off executive assistant, she's sort of down on her luck. Then she dies and things really go down hill.

Poor Betsy turns into a vampire after she is hit by a car when she is walking across the street. She wakes up in a funeral home basement on the day of her funeral. She's pretty disoriented at first but our Betsy is a quick adjuster. She heads home, informs her parents and her best friend that she's not really dead, kind of. And she gets herself acquainted with the local vampire community. Now it seems like none of the normal vampire rules apply to Betsy. She can touch crosses, go into churches, she controls her bloody hunger, she doesn't get fried up in the sun or none of the normal things that vamps go through. This puts her on the local vamps radar even though that's the last place she wants to be, she doesn't want to be involved with them in any way and she just wants to go back to her normal life.

I really enjoyed this book. Betsy is so funny. She's witty and snarky and has a heart of gold. Who doesn't love that? I love that she just rolls with the punches and doesn't let anything but a nice pair of shoes faze her. All of the characters in this book are really great actually. And there is some hot, hot, steamy under water loving that takes place. I really want to get my hands on the second book but I don't want to get series overload. I'm really contemplating breaking that rule to read more. This series is absolutely fantastic, if you haven't checked it out yet you definitely need too.

    1. I stopped after book 10. The plot started to be a rinse and repeat thing. But the earlier books was fun. The series just should have stopped sooner IMO.

    2. I think that happens with a lot of the longer series. Sometimes they drag them out too much.

    1. Yeah it's definitely a lighter paranormal series but it still has a bit of kick to it. I think they're cute so far and fun.
