Book Description

"An amazing new vampire series! Don't miss it!"
--Morgan Rice, #1 Bestselling author of THE VAMPIRE JOURNALS

When her dad is transferred, Rachel Wood is uprooted from her home in Pennsylvania and forced to enter a new high school, in 10th grade, in an affluent suburb in Westchester, New York. She finds herself in way over her head, as she struggles to come to grips with meeting new friends, finding a boyfriend, avoiding the cliques of mean girls, and figuring out how to survive in such a hostile new world. She has trouble navigating this new world, where drinking and drugs seem the norm, and where social pressures build on her from every direction.

Everything seems to go wrong for Rachel, until salvation comes in the form of Rob, a football player who takes a liking to her. But just as there romance is about to blossom, she finds herself confused by his actions.

As things reach a low point, Rachel meets a mysterious boy from her school, Benji, a loner who keeps apart from the other kids, and who takes her on a ride on his motorcycle. They have an unforgettable night together in an amusement park—until something goes horribly wrong, and Benji shocks her by saving her life.

Rachel knows that Benji is different from everyone else, and she knows that he is the love of her life. And as their romance deepens, she has to decide if she is willing to give up everything to find out his secret…

Book #2 in the series (TAKEN) and Book #3 in the series (BITTEN) are now also available.

    1.0 out of 5 stars so not good! October 16, 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    First off I'm not sure where the five star reviews came from and cant help but wonder if we read the same book. The main character could possibly be the most superficial person ever. And what was with all the brand names mentioned. Like I care what brand eyeshadow she is wearing. That took away from the story way too much. The love plot was ridiculous. Do not waste your time.

    Wow, was this bad! Generally, I'm not a fan of young adult series as I find the level of description high and the plot stretched thin to allow the existence of multiple books rather than having such a complex storyline multiple books are required simply to tell the story. However this book was even worse than my expectations. It's really more of a short story. The protagonist Rachel is the only remotely developed character. She is extremely shallow and though she does keep a diary there is zero introspection. Every other character in the book, including Benji and Rob, are cardboard cutouts to be moved around as necessary. The parents are ogres (normal worried parents) sometimes and then don't appear at all again in the entire rest of the book. There is more description of products and brand name dropping than I have ever encountered. It was unnecessary and distracting. On top of this the writing was appalling. It definitely read's like a young teen wrote this in English class. I read this on an e reader where I would read about three paragraphs a "page". In those paragraph's "Rachel" was the first word of the sentence on average 5 times. Following is an example of the start of 5 consecutive sentences on one page and this isn't even the worst of it. "Rachel said loudly.... Rachel listened.... Rachel walked... None of it was organized.... Rachel rolled up her blinds...." Thank goodness this was a free book. And to the author, I can see a glimmer of potential but it needs so much work and fleshing out before its even close. Get help and try again!

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as I expected. February 20, 2013
    By Ashley
    Format:Kindle Edition
    When I read the description for this book I thought that it would be interesting even though the plot didn't seem all that original. The book started out okay,but then I noticed things that started to annoy me. For example, everything the author described she had to say the name brand. I mean,I get that for a few things, but it was like product placement every few pages. Another things was that the main character came off as needy and naive, which is highly offputting. For the first 80% of the book I questioned if this was even a Vampire novel at all because it was like nothing happened!! Then all of a sudden, the vampire enters the picture and she's all like ''it was love at first sight''. Then he saves her life and he's all she can think about. And the worst part was when she said it broke heart to know that he didn't trust her enough to tell her his secret. They only knew each other one day!! I can tell that the author has potential but this book needs some work, and I just can't get into this series enough to buy the next book.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Boring!!! February 14, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was really disappointed with this story. Like most of the reviews say, too much product placement! it was so irritating to read the name brand of every little thing on every page. too many details, hardly any action to keep you interested, not to mention the main character was horrible. Apparently she was into sports and a loner and also thought about being someone important in this world or even a scientist?? Like come on! Too desperate and just overall boring character. Half the time I felt like I was reading about a 12 year old girl with how the author portrays this character. do yourself a favor and pass this one up.

    I have never read a book with so many pointless product mentions! Like reading a poorly written short story by a middle schooler. Waste of time.

    1.0 out of 5 stars So about this book June 6, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    It was... pretty god awful. I have to agree - the writing was remedial. And jeeze with all of the product placement? I don't care that the main character chose her Mac foundation to match her white Macy's tube top. Every sentence in the first book mentioned some brand name. It was almost hard to read through that. Somehow I managed to make it to the end.... Surprise. Spoiler alert for the main character. Benji already starred in a series. Its called Twilight. I mean... I understand themes that are similar. But COME ON. Bejni magically saves this girl he barely knows from a falling Ferris wheel car? Oh nothing happened. You are just seeing things. It was the adrenaline. I am usually OK with themes that are repetitive (hence why I bothered to buy it) but this book is basically a copy. Rachel using her computer to research vampires. Rachel: there is something different about you. Benji: I'm not like other people. I'm... *gasp* a vampire. But don't worry I don't feed on humans!

    This book reminds me of when people used to just copy down paragraphs from encyclopedias and claim they wrote that part of the paper.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly put together February 24, 2014
    By Zira
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Many can relate to Rachel as far as being uprooted from a familiar place to something very new and unknown. I'm not even sure as to what happened between Rob and Rachel. One day he decided to ignore her, but no reason as to why. Benji definitely needed to be introduced earlier in the book. He came out of nowhere and it was too close to the end of the book. This was supposed to be a vampire book and if you didn't know that, you wouldn't know that by reading the book. Except right at the end you know something is up with Benji, you don't know what though. This book really had some potential but I have no interested in getting the other books. I'm happy this one was free for my kindle. I even went to the other books that are part of this series and read the summary and I feel that by reading the summary I've already read all the books. I can't stress enough to proofread and if you can't get a real editor you need to find honest people willing to read your book so these flaws can be pointed out.
