The Barnes & Noble Review
No woman has gotten the best of vampire Ethan Carrick in 700 years, but that's about to change. Alexis is a karate-kicking spitfire, a Las Vegas prosecutor with a 95 percent conviction rate, and -- let's face it -- very short and 100 percent human. She also has a rescue complex where her half sister, Brittany, is concerned. Which is how she meets up with Ethan, who has talked Brittany into playing the part of his girlfriend during the course of his election campaign. To save Brittany, Alexis takes over the fake-girlfriend role, and neither Ethan nor Alexis can ignore their growing attraction. The plot kicks up a notch as Alex gets an email invitation to join a vampire slayers listserv; Brittany gets involved with a banished vampire who knows her family secret; and someone tries to kill Ethan, knowing full well he won't call the cops.

Erin McCarthy brings her trademark breezy humor and sexy scenes to this odd-couple romance, a battle of the sexes with a twist. Ginger Curwen

I read the whole Twilight Saga and the whole Sookie Stackhouse series, so i wanted a new book to read and bought this one. This book is good fix when you are like me and wanted more on the whole Vampires wanting more blood, sex and violence. I would not recommend this book to anyone 18 years or younger. It has a LOT of adult content in it, so if you are a prude this book is not for you either....a very easy read..

This book introduces the concept of vampires for neophites that deal with the underworld. A great sister read. Not boring, packed with action, adventure, and sexual excitement.

I just got the book less than 3 hours ago and I already read the entire thing. It had me laughing like a loony all by myself. I'm glad that I bought the other two that go with it. I can't wait to read them as well. If you want something funny, sexy, and fast paced this is your book!

What a cute vampire/chick lit book. Having always loved Erin McCarthy, I wanted to try her vampire books and I have to say I am impressed and will be reading the second book in the series! This book is a quick read, filled with steamy romance, and funny. B+++++

I must admit that I'm the kind that is wary of authors I haven't read. But I needed something to read and this author kept catching my eye, so I said what the heck. I was so glad that I did. This book is a fun read. The plot was cute and the characters had lines that actually made me laugh. I am hooked and plan on purchasing the next books in the series. Definitely would recommend.
