Overview

In Don't Bite the Bridesmaid by Tiffany Allee, Alice Shepard needs one thing: a date for her sister's wedding. And not just any date. A hunk who will make her fiancé rue the day he left her for her best friend. Her drop-dead gorgeous neighbor fits the bill—even if he is a bit quirky and never comes out during the day—and Alice has downed just enough appletinis to ask him. But she makes it quite clear that there will be no funny business.

Spending a week on a cruise ship full of humans while sleeping close to his sexy next-door neighbor sounds like a helluva bad idea to vampire Noah Thorpe. But his friends need time to get him out of a shotgun wedding—a vampire bonding that will tie his fate to a female vampire he's never met. And Alice's offer comes at just the right time.

What could possibly go wrong?

Fun and sexy! Damn! I can't believe I just read this now, I've been putting this off for quite sometime as I thought Don't Bite the Bridesmaid was going to be another cliche vampire romance but I was wrong! I've read a lot of dark vampire stories but never something like this.. the writing style is quite unique, love the humor in the story and the sex scenes are steamy! I have no issues with the main characters! Noah is one grumpy vamp... sexy, possessive, protective but also a little sensitive and vulnerable that I actually find very adorable! Alice was an okay heroine too, had some insecurities and trust issues but that's understandable. She's funny, witty.. though she came off as weak sometimes but that didn't dampened my feelings for her. Of course there were some misunderstanding at the end that added spice in the story! I hope this becomes a series as I wanted to find out more about Alice's brother Andrew and Noah's brothers- Alex and Charles. Overall, this was a fun read with interesting characters that I thoroughly enjoyed! I had so much fun reading this and highly recommend this to anyone who's looking for some quick fun, sexy vamp story!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I love romances that make me sigh when I’m done. I believe it’s about 200 pages and it took me about two hours to read. Lucky for me I started it after bedtime, no little interruptions, because I didn’t want to put it down. Simply put it is a sweet romance between a vampire and a human with a couple of very nice steamy love scenes. It reads quickly and it’s fun. Perfect for a few hours lounging on the beach or in your backyard, just soaking up the sun, since Noah really shouldn’t. I actually didn’t read the blurb first (I rarely do with review books, if a title or cover interests me, I’m in.), just saw the cover and started reading. I can say, it went the way I thought it would with a little fight scene thrown in that I didn’t expect, between people I didn’t expect. I loved it and I be happy to step into Alice’s place and be stuck on a cruise ship with Noah. The only thing more I would want from this book would be, well, more. I could have read this for even longer, been sucked into this romance and happily stayed there for awhile. That’s not unusual for me when I get done with a book whose characters I really liked. You just wish you could unread it and start it all over again. I’m assuming/hoping that there will be more books to come with stories about Alex, Chance, and maybe even Kane. I could also see a book about Andrew, Alice’s brother, and his (could she possibly come back to be) fiance, Olivia. (Promise, that’s not a spoiler. Andrew’s not a main character in this book, just casually mentioned and Olivia is naturally brought up with his name. I would definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a fun romance novel with a little vampire twist. It’s not too heavy, won’t take you a week to finish, and you’ll end it wishing you had a Noah in your life.

But his friends need time to get him out of a shotgun wedding—a vampire bonding that will tie his fate to a female vampire he's never met. And Alice's offer comes at just the right time. What could possibly go wrong? Review I liked this take on vampire stories, it was not dark and moody, but light and fun. It was original, but also, stayed with some of the vampire mythos. Though this is a paranormal story, but has a very contemporary feel. Alice, a pretty mortal lives next door to Noah, a handsome 200 yr old vampire. When Alice needs a date to accompany her on a cruise for her sisters wedding; why not ask the sexy Noah? the man she has been lusting over for a while now. Alice has been hurt by her ex-fiancee and ex-best friend, so obviously she is gun shy and takes a chance on asking Noah to go with her. I liked Alice because she was someone you could easily relate too and understand her insecurities. Noah agrees to going with Alice and keeping up this farce because he has his own troubles he needs to hide out from. Noah, seems aloof and standoffish at first, partly because he really does want Alice. Once he is on the cruise he becomes more more at ease and even territorial where Alice is concerned. There time on cruise finds them growing closer and the when they finally come together the scenes steamy and sexy. Of course, there has to be a miss-understanding and a making up and Ms. Allee does a good job of making it believable and hoping for our characters work out their differences. I loved the supporting characters, they really add to the fun of the story. I think Alice's Mom should have her own story, I think there is a great back story to be told and she is a fun/interesting character. Then there is mention of Alice's brother who was left at the alter by his vampire finance; maybe setting up another book? From the title I would assume that Noah's two brothers will be having books come out about them and cannot wait to read them! 4 Licks

Cute paranormal story. Would like Kane to have a story as well as Alex, Olivia, and Charles.

Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid is more than just a vampire novel. It’s a novel about two completely different people that somehow have to “pretend” to like each other around others and avoid their intense attraction when behind closed doors. Tiffany Allee’s tale earns 4.5 stars from me! Unexpected twists and turns to their already rocky situation caused me to keep turning the pages and not able to put it down. Alice is such a strong, optimistic woman, but has allowed one man to cause negativity to override herself perception. Noah is centuries old, anti-social, brooding, and in a dilemma of his own involving another. Having closely watched each other for 5 years as neighbors, but never getting close enough to see if there could be more between them, they force themselves to be stuck on a cruise ship for a week. What could go wrong? Or, rather, what could go right? Tiffany’s writing takes these characters and makes you fall in love with them, hate them, root for me, bash them, and want to keep them all at the same time. I can’t wait to see what is up next for the Son’s of Kane series! (I received an ARC for my honest review and this is my honest to goodness, straight from the heart review!)

I loved this book! I quit reading paranormal books they became boring just like the new adults contemporary are becoming. This book was different, it was funny, sexy and a lot of fun to read. Thoroughly enjoyed from begining to end. Highly recommend.

I really enjoyed the book. I think the relationship between the family members is spot on and Alice's hurt from a previous relationship is palpable. The story is told with a lot of humor, some poignant moments, and a FABULOUS twist. The characters are a little different, and for the most part, Tiffany uses conventional rules for her vampires influenced by a variety of traditions. I Highly Recommend DON'T BITE THE BRIDESMAID for a bit of summer fun. It would be a great gift to send bridesmaids before the wedding, especially if your wedding is on a cruise ship or at a destination. This review originally appeared on my blog, Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust. I received an e-galley from the publisher for review. All opinions herein are my own and no remuneration was exchanged.

What a wonderfully refreshing paranormal romance. I had gotten so used to heavy, deep paranormal romances that I had forgotten vampires can be funny! Don't Bite The Bridesmaid is fun, lighthearted, sensual reading at its best. I love the chemistry between Alice and Noah right from the very start. There is emotion, passion, flirting... I mean really, I simply enjoyed every single page of this read! There wasn't a lot of angsty drama to drag it down, although I did feel for Alice with her horrible ex-boyfriend... but it certainly didn't hurt to have hunky Noah right beside her defending her honor and saving the day every chance he got! Don't Bite the Bridesmaid is a perfect read for a long day at the beach or sitting in the sun on your porch. Fast paced, humorous, romantic with fabulous secondary characters the story flew right by for me and has me wanting more!!!

“A hilariously funny vampire love story with a unique setting of a wedding cruise.” Alice has been peeking on her next door neighbor for years. He doesn’t go out much during the day, doesn’t have many visitors, and his home is in desperate need of “clutter.” She’s been burned before by love, so she’s reluctant to enter into any relationship. But, she does need him to accompany her on her sister’s wedding cruise for sweet revenge against her ex. Noah steals glances at his neighbor from across his back yard. He loves her sweet apple scent, and the way she comes over from time to time. But, he can’t get too close, or she’ll find out his secret, which is definitely why he shouldn’t go on a cruise with her. But, he’s running from something and has to leave town for the week, which is definitely why he should go. When these two get together, sparks fly-along with a volleyball- in a tournament of revenge. Noah is irresistible, and Alice is a sweet and witty woman. I so wanted them to find their way to each other. A vampire on a cruise is a hilariously funny idea that makes for an endless supply of laugh out loud scenes and numerous of hot ones, too. Without giving too much away, I loved the moment Noah meets her ex, and the moment she finds out he’s a vampire. Tiffany Allee keeps us guessing until the end with a few unexpected twists and turns. This is so much fun to read, you can eat it up like candy. I can’t wait to see what she has to offer us next!

Fun, contemporary PNR.  Alice needs a date to take to her sisters wedding as her ex is the best man.  Her next door neighbor is single and a hunk and more importantly he needs to get out of town for a couple of days so it’s a win win for both.  What they didn’t expect was exactly how much of a win it could be for them both. This is a fun don’t take yourself so serious romp.  Fans of Candace Havens Take It Like A Vamp will enjoy Don't Bite the Bridesmaid .  Can’t wait for Charles and Alex to find their sunshine.

I don't know how many of you remember the movie The Wedding Date. What happens in the movie is the lead hires a male escort to pretend to be her boyfriend while she attends her sisters wedding and make her ex jealous. Well, Don't Bite the Bridesmaid has a similar plot. However, she asks her neighbor to be her wedding date; no exchange in money, but he's a vampire. First off I did like The Wedding Date when it came out, so it was bound to happen that I would love Tiffany Allee's Don't Bite the Bridesmaid. I personally thought Alice Shepard was adorable. I mean she's so sweet, nice and innocent in away. I love that she was totally clueless that her neighbor was a vampire. Then you have Noah Thorpe who has lived a simple life, but is being force to bond with another vampire. He figures it would be a good idea go on the cruise with Alice, where things get a bit complicated. Seriously, a fun read. I was entertain from the first page to the last. Love the complication of Noah and Alice's relationship. I have to say that I really like Ms. Allee's take on vampire. Sorry there is no sparkly vampires here, but they are able to be out in about in the day (within reason). I love the chemistry these to characters emit when they are around each other. Let's be honest I wanted to read this book, because of the title. I mean Don't Bite the Bridesmaid sounds like a fun read, and it is. So, if you are looking for a fun vampire read, I would suggest Don't Bite the Bridesmaid. Who knows you might want to look for your own vampire. Copy provided by the publisher

I was generously given an ARC copy of this book! That being said I was not told to have to leave a positive review, but to leave an honest review in reading the book! When we think of vampire/paranormal romance books- we think Twilight.. but Tiffany takes Vampires to a new level which I love! She makes them her own and has us wanting more and wishing all men could be like Noah the vampire!(I'd take him-- shh don't tell my hubby tho! ha)  She literally sucks us right in with a big bite of curiosity, humorous times + romance and then sinks her teeth into us at the end! This is such a cute sweet vampire story that literally will suck you in and once you are in.. you will get bitten. Bitten by a cute love story! I enjoyed all Noah and Alice as well as Alice's family... and wow. I don't think I will ever think of lasagna ever again without thinking of Noah and Alice. ;) :) :)  This is such a cute summer read! There is so much more that can be done with this book that leaves us excited and happy with the ending... and then wanting and needing more! If you want a cute, sweet, short romance with humor, some misunderstandings, few hot scenes and love in a vampire/paranormal romance this book is definitely for you! It will make you laugh and enjoy the time you spent reading ! I look forward to reading more books in this series! I

I used to read Paranormal Romance all the time, but then it seemed like they were all the same and omg, they were ALL ABOUT VAMPIRES. All of them. So I stepped away, only reading one from time to time when I needed a break from my usual genres. And to be perfectly honest, this was why I picked up Don't Bite the Bridesmaid last week. Because I felt like I needed a palate cleanser from all the YA and New Adult I had been reading. What a surprise! It was refreshing to read a PNR that was funny and sweet and light and all kinds of romantical and has all the key elements (ahem) of why we read romance books to begin with. But it wasn't over the top with the stereotypical all knowing vampire and doormat heroine (cough Bella Swan cough). Neighbors for years but barely even acquaintances, Alice and Noah's lives collide when desperate circumstances require that they spend a week together on a cruise ship. The situation isn't ideal for either of them, but there's that whole saying about life and lemons and lemonade. Alice is easy to like -- sure she has her flaws, but who doesn't. Especially when they've been burned before. And her family cracked me up. Noah is a bit broody, but I would be too if I being forced into an arranged marriage. Yet he manages to set it aside to help Alice out when she needs him. And he doesn't sparkle! As the week progresses and walls come down, acquaintances become friends become more. Knowing the cruise is a week long allows the pacing of their relationship to seem realistic and the ending will leave you with a smile on your face -- complete enough to read as a stand alone, but with enough openings to allow for potential future books. Tiffany Allee has written a story that entertained me from beginning to end. I would recommend this one to anybody looking to add to their summer reading list -- and I'm keeping my fingers crossed that she writes more about this cast of characters. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

Very cute love story.   I don't know if the fact that Noah is a vampire has much bearing when it comes to the heart of this story.  I mean there are factors about Noah that cannot be ignored, but all in all, it's two people learning to trust and fall, somewhat unwillingly, in love. The characters are adorable, the setting is perfect.  An excellent bubble bath read.

Don't Bite the Bridesmaid was a book that was entertaining, and kept you intested. The only problem I had with it was the back story regarding the brother which I feel should have had his own story as the first in the series. Other than that it was a good read if not somewhat predictable.

The story behind this book is pretty great. I did enjoy it and the interactions between the characters. It was a little drawn out, but you have to remember they are on a cruise ship for a week. It had to be drawn out.

I love the story, the characters, the view on vampires especially. I just hate to find that it is so short. I would love to hear more from these characters! Nothing wrong with short, just a little sad. I eagerly await the next this author tosses our way!
