    Great book!

    This book was sooo good and even though it was only a short story I was hooked. I espcially loved the plot twist at the end and Sarah Mylnowski is a great writer! Also this book is only 99¿! Totally recomend for a short read!

    .As I was reading this short story, I kept thinking, "Oh, this is going to be so predictable."
    I was SO wrong about that!

    Kristin and her friend, Liz, are on a cruise that was gifted to them from their parents after graduation. Time alone on a cruise to nowhere (seriously, this ship just cruises around the ocean, no stops!), they're on the prowl for cute boys. Especially Kristin, who thinks it's time to finally "take the next step" in her life. And her and her friend think that having a one-time-stand with a stranger is the way to go.
    But as soon as they're set to go scope out the pools, they run into a girl who tells them about the mysterious disappearances that have been happening on cruise's lately... the one where passengers are disappearing and these disappearances are rumored to be because of vampires. 
    Do vampires really exist?

    Oh my, the humor! The silliness! These girls!
    So much fun!
    So NOT predictable at all!

    The ending!!!
    What a twist!!!
    Did not see that coming!!!

    I really wish that this story wasn't so short - I would have liked an extra chapter or two just to get to know the main characters a bit better - it truly felt rushed.

    I highly recommend this as a go to read to help you get out of a reading slump, to get over an emotional read or a bumper for in-between long reads! It won't disappoint!
