Plot: 4/5 stars
I loved the set-up for this story and, despite thinking I had the ending all figured out from the beginning, was happy to devour every word. As it turned out, I didn't have the ending figured out at all but, for the first time, that was because I was expecting a bigger plot twist than what I received which is why I am giving this part of the review 4 stars rather than 5. It was a great story - but it didn't particularly surprise me.
Characters: 4/5 stars
Your main character is a seemingly pretty but otherwise plain-Jane who will inevitably become the super hero of the series. Her best friend is a quirky, spunky, off beat girl with crazy spiky hair. Her leading man is insanely delicious, broody, and - at times - dramatic. Yes, Twilight fans, if it sounds familiar to you I do understand. HOWEVER, the characters were well-written, believable, likeable, and extremely entertaining!
Writing: 5/5 stars
In the beginning the impression that I got was that the writing was unpolished but, as I read, I realized that this author just has an exceptionally unique style and the more I read the more it worked for me. It's not conventional, but it's extremely effective! Her tone and pacing makes the funny quirks in her characters even funnier and quirkier and by the end of the book it was like crack. I laughed, literally, out-loud so many times while reading this book!
Formatting/Editing: 5/5 stars
Either the self-proclaimed typo-nanny was too engrossed in the story to notice or there wasn't a single, solitary typo in this entire book. HOLY CRAP! That's so rare and Awesome!!!
Originality: 3/5 stars
So the centuries old male vampire that can read thoughts and drives a Ferrari is madly and eternally in love with the innocent and blissfully ignorant human girl who drives an old red vehicle. BUT WAIT A MINUTE!! Once you can get past the Twilightian similarities, and you should, you get to enjoy the unique elements of the book that blend a refreshing concoction of traditional vampire lore (like turning to dust from sunlight, for example) with unique and fun concepts like magical stakes, a complete lack of even basic culinary common-sense (HILARIOUS), and the idea that MOST vampires are generally good and it is the minority that goes insane and becomes blood sucking monsters. Love it!

This story is about a woman who meets a vampire who turns out to be her eternal partner. Very good story except I just did not like Donna. There was just something about her I found very annoying. I loved her best friend Mo, she just was a spunky woman who I guess I relate better too. Hunter was ok, a little odd in my opinion even for a vampire. I think everyone will love the other vampires, Trent and Dante though. It was a very good story that I think as the series continues will even get better. I was not as hooked with this one as I would have liked but that could be because I just did not like Donna, or her mother! I cannot wait to read the next book and see what happens next cause well I know it is going to be good.

Rating 4 stars
Donna is just a few days from her 21st birthday. Unfortunately she recently lost her job and now has to move back home. Weirdly enough, she has began to have some of the creepiest nightmares ever. As she begins her senior year of college het whole world begins to change. The only constant she has is that her always witty and beyond crazy best friend Mo.
Soon Donna finds herself unexplainably drawn to Hunter. He is a long tall drink of water on legs. He also carries around son deep and dark secrets which Donna is set on finding. This book is wonderfully romantic, eerie and inspirational all at the same time. As Donna goes in this journey she learns strength at the same time. The prophetic nigjmares really creeped me out, in a good way LOL.
The author has action without being overly busy. It is well written in believable situations that play out in unsuspecting ways. I have to read book 2 now just to see where this story goes......cause theres this little girl curious. A hands down thrill ride for sure!!!!
