[A] sexy, engaging world…will leave you begging for more! (New York Times bestselling author Cheyenne McCray)

From the Back Cover

New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren invites you to sink your teeth into the electrifying and erotic world of the Others.


Ava Markham is beautiful, savvy, chic, and more at home with Kate Spade than with the idea of fangs and fur. She can't get quite used to the fact that some of closest friends have crossed over to the Other side. Then one night she is attacked by a rogue vampire, and her deepest fears are realized when her body begins a dangerous transformation from human to immortal--a change she cannot survive without the help of an alluring stranger who comes to her rescue…


YOU'RE SO VEIN


Vladimir Rurikovich, an elite member of the European Council of Vampires, is on the prowl for a murderous vampire fugitive on the night he saves Ava from the clutches of death. It takes just one look for Dima to know he cannot live another eight centuries without the stunning and seductive Ava--until he discovers a secret about her bloodline that could change everything…

I love Christine's work. I do. I have most everything she's done. I really wanted to like this book as I did Howl at the Moon and Wolf at the Door. I actually loved One Bite with a Stranger where many did not. But I couldn't like this book. I won't bore you with the book details since its already been done. For me, the booked dragged with no spark, none of Christine's usual sizzle. The plot was thin and the characters very vague and lifeless. No reason for me to become concerned with their wellbeing. This is the first time that I was hoping the heroine would get killed within the first two chapters and replaced with someone else.

In short, I hated Ava Markham with a passion! I love tough heroines, tougher the better, somebody that fights and scratches for their very survival, but I hate stupid ones with absolutely no reasoning other than sheer vanity and childish petulance. If a plausible reason had been given for those behaviors, other than "mommy and daddy didn't love me", then maybe she could have been more likeable. The hero, of course, ends up loving her and risking life and limb and you can't see why. Ava's character wasn't created with any redeeming features at all and Dima was just there - not really any better. You'd expect more from a guy who's been around 800 years to have a better developed personality. It was very difficult to even visualize these characters; they were vague, lifeless.

I'm not a writer, just a reader and this is only my opinion and you know what they say about those. I may not have liked this book, but I won't give up on Christine. I'll wait and see what else she has in store next.

I was really looking forward to this book. Ava had such a reputation from previous books of being very intelligent and very fiesty. Well she was fiesty in this book but alot of her decision making was not very smart. Dima is a vampire who is over 700 years old who rescues Ava after she is attacked by a vampire. I didn't think the romance between Ava and Dima was great at all. It was more like he loved her and she tolerated him. I must say that I was disappointed in this book. I guess I expected more.

I rarely submit reviews to Amazon. But, I really HATED this novel. Having read "Love at First Bite," I was really looking forward to reading Ava's story. However, the novel just seemed extremely sexist and contrived! Although the heroine is supposedly a strong-willed, successful and intelligent woman, the author makes it seem like any display of independence is a massive character flaw. The most egregious example, after Ava is assaulted on the street, almost killed, and forcibly turned into a vampire, Ava understandably wants to go home, but is forced to go to her friend for the spare set of keys to her apartment. In response to her attack and forced conversion to vampirism, her friends gloat and criticize her for not handling the situation properly. Clearly, in this universe, being assaulted in an alley, almost killed and forced to become a blood-sucking creature of the night is no reason to get rattled!!! Then, the heroine's so-called life-long best friend refuses to give the heroine the keys to her own apartment and criticizes the heroine for attempting to return to her own home and not obeying her new vampire master's orders not to leave his apartment!!!! Did I mention that the heroine's new vampire master is a virtual stranger to these characters and a man that these characters just met??? After that bit of sheer sexist stupidity, I was forced to drop this book in utter disgust. Wish I could return this book and get my money back.

I prefer to read a series in order, and I didn't realize that I wasn't until the "Big Bad Wolf"
According to her web site, there are 4 books that in this series that haven't been published (they were written through Ellora's Cave and could have been downloaded, but they are no longer available).
The actual reading order of these books are:
1. One Bite with a Stranger (Regina & Dmitri... the first of the Fantasy Fix's)
2. Big Bad Wolf (Missy & Graham)
3. not yet published (Danice & Mac)
4. not yet published (Corinne & Luc)
5. not yet published (Tess & Rafe)
6. not yet published (Logan & Honor)
7. Wolf at the Door (Sullivan & Cassidy)
8. She's No Faerie Princess (Fiona & Tobias)
9. The Demon you Know (Abby & Rule)
10. Howl at the Moon (Noah & Samantha)
11. Walk on the Wild Side (Kitty & Marcus)
12. You're So Vein (Ava & Vladimir)
13. Born to be Wild (Eli & Josie)
According to the web site, these books can be read alone or in order, but after reading You're So Vein, where Missy & Graham are already together and then starting Big Bad Wolf, where Missy & Graham get together, was a little confusing at first.
I think I would have given this series a 5 star if it wasn't for that confusion.

So I just finished reading this book, and I have to say I wasn't really impressed. For starters, I thought this was the first book in "The Others" series. Turned out to be book 7. Oopsey. The funny thing is that I didn't really notice that it was at the tail end of a series until I was done and started doing a little research on the author's website christinewarren.net. So maybe my bad impression was mostly my fault. Should have done my homework.

It's set in contemporary New York, and Ava (our heroine) is a successful 30-something who is changed into a vampire as the result of a brutal attack. (Isn't that how it always goes? Your life is at it's peak and then WHAM, you're the walking undead.) Lucky for Ava, an avenging vampire happens upon the scene of her attack. He slaughters the rogue vamp who attacked her and whisks her back to his apartment to help ease her into her new existence.

Dima is an 800 year old Russian vampire who happens to be in the New York area chasing down a crazy lady (who is also a vampire; will the wonders never cease?) And not only does he take her back to his apartment, he strips her down and ties her up to prevent her from hurting herself. That is what she wakes up to almost 24 hours later. Tied up, half naked, in a strange place, and a vampire.

I don't know about anyone else, but a situation like that would really piss me off. No matter how hot the guy was or how good his intentions. Apparently for Ava, seething rage easily gives way to wanting a good boffing, because the next thing you know they are getting it on. Which is what most of us expect to happen when we read a vampire novel with the word 'erotic' anywhere on the cover. But man, there was no preamble, no rationale, nothing.
