I really loved this book. It was a fun, lighthearted paranormal romance. Which was a fun twist on most PNR's that are darker and dangerous.
Lissa is a vampire but most of what you know about vampires isn't true. Holy water, garlic, crosses, etc can't harm them. And while they need to stay away from the sun, it doesn't immediately kill them. They do have to drink blood but they use blood banks specifically for vampires. Usually anyhow. Lissa is a special case because she's hemaphobic. So she has to drink straight from the source. Which isn't easy because she doesn't want to get caught and it's not the safest option.
Lissa's mother, thinking she's being helpful, basically kidnaps a psychologist who is a specialist in curing phobias. He's supposed to be Lissa's birthday present. She needs to not faint at the sight of blood and the good doctor is going to fix her. But he's not very cooperative. Lissa's mother tried to give him new memories and tried to control his mind but it's not working. Apparently his mind is too strong for her to whammy him. Which is not necessarily a bad thing.
Lissa is attracted to Greg and he's attracted to her. And for some reason Lissa can't read Greg's mind. Which there's an old knowledge with vampires that if you can't read their mind and what not it means that person is possibly their life mate. So Lissa and crew are working to get Greg out of the house while avoiding her mother and aunt, which isn't easy. While Lissa appreciates what her mom is trying to do, she doesn't really agree with the whole kidnapping bit.
Things of course lead into a ton of antics. And I really enjoyed this book. It was funny and sweet. I'm looking forward to reading more in this series. I'm glad that this series was brought to my attention.
