Overview

William Hamilton has spent his life cursing his fate, biding his time, and working on the science he's sure will free him and his childhood friend, Liv, from the curse of living as vampires.

When Liv tries to reach out to her humanity and winds up tortured for a century, she puts the idea of physically changing out of her head and convinces William that they should embrace their eternal teenagerhood and go...back to high school.

It's the last thing William wants...but he'll do anything for Liv, including facing an entire human high school of blood-filled students, poetry classes, and teenage hormones. But then he meets Bridget Greene, and he realizes that if he had a heart, it would be thumping out of his chest every time she got close.

He's seriously tempted to go back into hiding, but Bridget's infuriating sexiness is intoxicating, and he can't stay away.

But Bridget isn't all that she seems. And William realizes that a few centuries as a cold immortal are nothing compared to Bridget's secrets and the the secrets of her friends, who keep popping up and complicating his existence.

When her life is in danger, William has to decide what side he's on and how far he's willing to go for the only person he's ever loved...even if what he needs to do could push her away forever.

Meet the Author

My favorite show growing up was 'The Jim Henson Hour,' and I still have a major soft spot for anything Henson. Henson fans are my people.

My favorite foods are super sweet or super salty. Preferably in combination. You will have my heart if you give me chocolates and anything coated in salt (pretzels, chips...I'm not picky).

When I was a kid and dreamed about what I wanted to be with I grew up, it alternated; a fairy, a mermaid, a witch, an angel (the kind that smite!), a ghost...since I never grew up to be any of those things, I decided to write about them.

I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I love writing them ;)!

    Vampire story that does not make vampires sexy creatures of the night!

    Book Blurb


    William Hamilton has spent his life cursing his fate, biding his time, and working on the science he's sure will free him and his childhood friend, Liv, from the curse of living as vampires.

    When Liv tries to reach out to her humanity and winds up tortured for a century, she puts the idea of physically changing out of her head and convinces William that they should embrace their eternal teenagerhood and go...back to high school.

    It's the last thing William wants...but he'll do anything for Liv, including facing an entire human high school of blood-filled students, poetry classes, and teenage hormones. But then he meets Bridget Greene, and he realizes that if he had a heart, it would be thumping out of his chest every time she got close.

    He's seriously tempted to go back into hiding, but Bridget's infuriating sexiness is intoxicating, and he can't stay away.

    But Bridget isn't all that she seems. And William realizes that a few centuries as a cold immortal are nothing compared to Bridget's secrets and the the secrets of her friends, who keep popping up and complicating his existence.

    When her life is in danger, William has to decide what side he's on and how far he's willing to go for the only person he's ever loved...even if what he needs to do could push her away forever.

    My Thoughts


    This was a very interesting read for me, it took us through time from the horse and buggy days to modern times without feeling rushed in any way. There is a lot going on in the story as there are many tangents going on at once to keep track of, not the least of which is William's research into reversing vampirism which does not quite turn out the way he planned in the end.

    The introduction later on in the story of Bridget and Jax moves the story into a different direction that focuses more on the relationship between Bridget and William and all it's drama.


    The idea of the two vampires going to High School once Liv comes out of her self inflicted hibernation cracked me up at first as of course shades of "Twilight" came through with that one.

    I enjoyed the relationship that eventually developed between Jax and William, two more opposite individuals who bond in spite of themselves. This was a nice change from the normal romanticizing of what it means to be a vampire. Two young people who were changed against their will and who have roamed the world for centuries trying to find a way to come to grips with their fate, not an easy task when you live forever and over time lose your enthusiasm for much of anything.

    The Author has created a series that I intend to pursue when she continues it with the next book, the characters interest me and it will be nice to see where they end up with their respective relationships as the ending left that up in the air.

    I must disclose that this book was an ecopy provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Wonderful

    Pros: It is good and not like most vampire stories. I liked the author's touch.

    Cons: There are a lot of editing mistakes. It goes very fast. It is slightly anti-climatic. There is one big fighting scene and it is over very fast.
