As an aside, I really didn't like the heroine, but I didn't knock stars for this. She was borderline tstl. She was extremely reactive/volatile in unfair ways and I often felt sorry for Bo in the early parts of this story because of her. She also often has to have things really spelled out for her to understand a concept and that got old. I want a heroine I can really stand behind but Ridley is more like the friend you have who you call friend but are often annoyed with and you wouldn't lose sleep over it if she moved to another town.
One final note...I was once told that if anyone ever tells you they're no good for you (Bo does this to Ridley, often), take it at face value and run far, far away. I wish I had been given that advice much earlier in my life than I had. It would have saved me a terrible relationship or two over the years and a lot of dumb/immature shenanigans. I think for some people this character flaw makes for a great hero but it tends to be a turn off for me.
The bottom line? I really think this book needs to go through another draft or two of editing. That said, I believe in the storyline enough that I'm going to continue on with book two. Hopefully some of the problems I mentioned above will get ironed out as the story progresses. Recommended, but with reservations.
A new twist on Vampires.
Ridley Heller is in her last year of high school. She only has to continue to be who she is until she gets her scholarship to Stanford. All of the torture of pretending is worth it as long as she gets into Stanford. That's her mission, get through Nine months. Nine months of pretending to get along with the schools evil queen, one year of putting up with her fake friends, Nine months of dating the quarterback that doesn't make her feel anything. Just Nine months. That will be easy. But Ridley Heller is oh so wrong...
Jonathan Bowman AKA Bo cannot take his eyes off of Ridley she finds herself feeling all "tingly". It doesn't matter that her friends think he's a stalker. He isn't to Ridley. He can't be. He's gorgeous and makes her feel like the only girl in the world. His words make her melt like butter. But Ridley is about to find out that Bo is so much more...
Bo is a Vampire. And he's dying...
Can Ridley save the man that she has fallen in love with? Or will she be too late... Read Blood like Poison to find out!
From the first sentence M. Leighton sucks you right in. You do go in thinking it is probably another Twilight knockoff but then you find out how so wrong you are. Ridley Heller is nothing like Bella Swan. But Bo does make you swoon like Edward Cullen. :) This is a whole new twist to vampires that will keep you enthralled.
I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to see what is in store for Ridley and Bo. You are left with so many unanswered questions and a sad ending, which makes you want to jump right into the next book in the series. I'm so glad that I found this series when it was done instead of having to wait long excruciating months for the next.
Why the 4 Star Rating? Only because I felt Bo was a little distant in this book and wished we had gotten to see him and Ridley get to know each other better. And because honestly, all they did was make out most of the time. With that said, I still enjoyed it!
This is my second book from Ms. Leighton and completely opposite of her contemporary masterpiece, Fragile, which makes you realize that she has the amazing talent of crafting Contemporary Romance as well as Paranormal Romance.
If you want to read a new twist on Vampires and romance, pick up this book!
