My name is Sarah Dearly, and I’ve got major problems. Last month, I was turned into a vampire by the world’s worst blind date. Then I may have, totally by accident, started a war between the mostly peaceful bloodsuckers and a bunch of sociopathic vamp hunters who have nicknamed me the Slayer of Slayers. Now I’m being used as bait to draw out the hunters’ bad-ass leader, while my gorgeous 600-year-old boyfriend Thierry seems to be blowing me off, and my sizzle-hot, fanged friend Quinn is trying to turn my self-defense lessons into make-out sessions. So you know what? I’m done. I’ve had it. There comes a time when a vamp has to just suck it up and go after what she wants. And as soon as I figure out what that is, that’s exactly what I’ll do…
“So that means that Peter…” I swallowed. “That his full name was Peter Parker.”
I burst into tears. “Oh, my God! I killed Spiderman!”
I’m having some fun rereading this series. I groan on average once every 20 pages or so. Rolling eyes and talking to the book are more frequent than that. This is just a super fun series to read just because you want some silly fun.
Sure, there are the attempts on Sarah’s life that happens. That is pretty exciting. And led to some really, really fun yelling at the book. That is the main purpose of the book. There is also this fun new “slayer of slayers” title Sarah has gotten, which is fueling danger coming at Sarah. Really though, all this is dressing for the romance!
And what a dramatic romance it is! Thierry still is done with that whole living thing, except when it comes to Sarah. The entire book, everyone is telling Sarah that Thierry isn’t any good for her, and what does she even see in him? Honestly, lady, I’m with them. What in the world is keeping these together? He is constantly not telling her things, foisting her off on others to take care of, ignores her and then doesn’t even tell others that they are together in any way. What kind of basis for a relationship is this??
Then there is the love triangle in the form of Quinn who Sarah describes as “perfect on paper for her”. Quinn is proper messed up. He is fun, he has an actual personality. I kind of like him, in a “he is fun and actually makes sense” kind of way. Someone needs to be able to piece him together again! Really though, this is just some physical attraction combined with both really disliking what they are so they can bond over it. And the attraction is just perfectly designed to mess things up with Thierry.
There is also a lot to do with the side romances, too. The romances Sarah’s friends have. A whole bunch of “Oh my god, he is cheating on me!” storyline, too. Really, this book is just all romance all the time with a side adventure of death. Hah that sounds funny, “side adventure of death”. But it is true. The plot definitely comes second to the romance.
If this wasn’t so much fun to react to, I would really be dreading the next book. As it stands, I’m looking forward to having the fun!
