Book Description

For Young Adults: Sixteen year-old Lexi Hunter is just an ordinary teenager wishing that her life could be as exciting as a reality tv show when her mom receives a phone call with the news that Lexi's cousin, Austin, was killed. She and her mom return to Briar Creek, the town that they left ten years ago, never looking back.

During their stay, Lexi falls head-over-heels for Gabe, the dark and mysterious guy who lives across the street and goes to the same high school that Austin went to. Lexi's Aunt Violet and Uncle Tommy insist on her staying away from him due to his violet behavior and instead urge her to pursue a relationship with Dan, Austin's best friend.

In an effort to learn more about the cousin she barely knew, Lexi snoops through Austin's belongings. Soon, she begins to uncover puzzling details that make her believe that Austin wasn't really attacked by an animal the night he was killed - details that may already be putting her own life in danger.

1.0 out of 5 stars written by children March 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ive never written a review before and I have a strong desire to critique this book. story line was so so.. but the main character was horrible. The authors seem like children with no heart. They lack the proper emotions for certain situations. the editing was horrid. errors left and right. I am an avid reader and will read pretty much anything and accept the book for what it is.. but i found myself getting very angry with the main character. The one plus in this book was the cliff hanger ending.. I purchased the second book and once i found out what they wanted from her i was done.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lacking in character development March 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book lacked in character development so thoroughly that the only reason I finished the book was to try and understand what I missed - which was apparently nothing. So girl heads to her long-lost relatives for a funeral, and on her first night back simultaneously "falls in love" with the boy across the street, and begins to develop a relationship with her dead cousin's best friend. And throughout the book girl acts like a typical "misunderstood" annoying teen, complains about her relatives (when she should have been running away, if she was smart) and attracts the attention of every guy in town. Lexi has no personality, her relationship with Gabe has no basis for love aside from mutual attraction, and necessary dialogue/development seems to be missing from the story. None of the relationships that are the basis of this book make any sense - nothing about this book is realistic. And when dealing with paranormal, something has to seem realistic for the rest of the story to be believable. Save yourself the time and money - don't bother with Kiss of Death unless you are looking to be fully annoyed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Just Another Vampire Book... February 22, 2012
By Jenn L.
Format:Kindle Edition
As you know from the title, it's about vampires...but there is so much more. There are a lot of characters, each interesting in his or her own right, and plenty of drama. I read this first installment in a few hours and downloaded the second directly from my Kindle Fire. Which means I was pretty darn hooked. On book two now and I have to say, it's a great read.

Sure, the writing is not major intellectual stuff...but hey, I read these type of books for pure entertainment and this really delivers! Great characters, interesting take on vamps (amusing mentions of Twilight, even) and a rich story mean I'm here for the whole series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Vampire Romance with twists and turns November 23, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I found Kiss of Death as an Amazon Suggestion. The synopsis looked interesting and I admit it the cover is pretty. The story drew me in immediately and had enough twists and turns to keep me guessing which is hard to do. The only reason I didn't give this five stars was because certain parts of the story felt like they happened too quickly such as parts of the romance. But I would recommend this for anyone who likes vampire romance with mysterious storylines.

Lexi Hunter and her Mom come home to Briar Creek after years away for Lexi's cousin, Austin's wake. Austin was supposedly killed by a wild animal to Lexi this just doesn't add up. As her Mom and her stay with her Aunt Violet and Uncle Tommy, Lexi asks around about Austin's death. Everyone in Briar Creek is odd and there are so many secrets that keep you glued to the book. Dan, Austin's best friend, shows interest in Lexi but so does the mysterious Gabe from across the street. On the night before, Lexi and her Mom as planning to go home, Lexi gets attacked and Lexi's Mom is killed. The autopsy says that Lexi's Mom died from E.Coli but since she was a vegetarian, Lexi is sure her Mom was murdered. Her Aunt and Uncle become her Gaurdians and become very controlling. Lexi is frustrated by her Aunt's lies and insistance that she date Dan. Although she likes Dan, Lexi feels swept away by Gabe who her aunt forbids her to see. Gabe and Lexi still manage to connect here and there but to me it seemed as though Lexi just suddenly climbs in his lap and is all over him. Dan is very creepy to me and the fact that her Aunt makes her date him made me root for Gabe. But you can never really tell who is on Lexi's side.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible April 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't even know where to start. I actually finished this book and the second. I felt this one was long and drawn out, without a lot of advancement in the story line. I read the second one hoping this one was building up to a great story line and get to the action. It didn't. The main character is completely absurd. She falls for and makes out with multiple boys right after the death of her mother, not seeming too distraught about the whole thing. She overhears multiple people conspiring again her, and she doesn't confront them, or do much of anything about it. And *SPOILER ALERT* she finds out the whole town wants to kill and eat her, and she can't leave because she doesn't have a car or money, and "they will find her." I find out a bunch of people want to eat me, I'm running. She just seems just...dumb.. people treat her like crap for the whole book, and she just kinda takes it. No fight in her whatsoever. She seems weak minded and it annoys me to no end. I end up yelling at my kindle "WHAT?! You're just gonna TAKE that!?" I've never started a book series and not wanted to finish it (no matter how bad, I just wanna know what happens!) but I'm finished after the second book. I've also never felt the need to review a book (without hyperbole, i read around 100-150 books a year) but this one was that bad.
