Ms. Owens has done a wonderful job with her characters. It is all too easy emphasize with Claire and her worries about paying her bills. Bette is a mixture of sultriness and feminine softness. And the men that she meets are hot and well developed. As busy and fast paced as this story is, it is most definitely the characters that make this tale so enjoyable.
I did find a few editing errors when I was reading and one did pull me out of the story for a minute. But overall, they didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.
I do recommend this book to vampire lovers looking for something different.
I rate this book a 3.3.
**I received this book at no charge in exchange for a fair and honest review. No monies have or will exchange hands.
Did I enjoy the story? Oh yeah. Ms Owens kept things gritty and mostly real. A nice change in a genre that's downplayed the heartless, dangerous, selfish side of the vampire culture. Will the idea flow in future novels? Maybe. I'm definitely intrigued...and I'll read the next novel in the Blood Chord series. Who wouldn't want to see every day Jane survive, adapt and thrive?
Kill Me is about Claire, a housewife turned professional mom, who is struggling to deal with her now dead beat husband as well as trying to make ends meet. She goes on a business trip that suddenly completely changes her life, and she meets the enigmatic Bette.
I had so much fun reading this book. I will put it out there that this is in no ways a book for kids or teens-- this is more for older women; and at times, I too thought I wasn't old enough for it! But this delightfully fun novel turns the stereotypical feeder of the night story on its head and indulges in more than just a little girl power. I blazed through it in one day and loved how it ended! I don't want to give away its secrets, but just believe me when I say it is well worth reading. Claire in particular is a very fun protagonist; what a kick-butt character.
I only wish that there was a scene (and maybe we will get it in future books) where her soon to be ex gets to see how awesome she is.
Overall, a fun, indulgent novel that will appeal to any woman who has struggled with being a working mom and wished for secret powers.
There are some fun parts, and the vampire lore is unusual, but it really, really, REALLY felt like a first novel. And I have to say that the POV character feels very much like a Mary Sue. Also, the sex really didn't add anything useful to the book. It could have, had the scene been worked better, but, as it was, it was mostly an interlude in between actual plot.
If you tend to find unusual vampire lore interesting, regardless of the writing, this is probably worth your time. Likewise, if you relate to the main character and can have fun with the Mary-Sue-itis, you'll probably enjoy it. Otherwise, give it a miss.

Only 1star and would probably make Minus 5 star if so could. It does not have my recommendation for any reader.
