I've download all the free ebooks to my nook and I've read almost all of them. So far TBTB's is by far the best one. As soon as I turned the first page I was pulled into Two's world, wished Revenge to fall on Darren and wanted Theroen and Two to be together forever. There's one thing that happened that was really sad and I really didn't like it but may be in book 2 I'll be happy again (fingers crossed)(I can't tell ya what it is for it would be a spoiler.) (-: The characters was well written and I can't wait till the next one is out. I read the excerpt for book 2 and now I wish I hadn't for now I'm hungry for more Now! (Thumbs up & A+++ from me)

Being an avid Dean Koontz, John Saul, Stephen King reader for 22 years it was hard for me to leave to go to a different type of writing style especially from an author I didn't know. That being said I am in love with this book, the characters were real and I felt all their emotions from this author. It didn't have the ending that was expected in most vampire books and kept me enthralled the entire duration of the novel which is a great feat. I can write so many praises for this book I cannot sum it up but I will be rereading this novel for years to come.

I dont know how to explain it but i just simply love this story. it was thrilling, dramatic, touching, interesting and much more. I was so close to tears when two of the characters were killed (i wont say who). I think that its definitely worth the download and will keep you interested from the moment you begin reading.

If you're interested in reading page after page of what vampires feel, how they think, what they sound like, and act like then go for it. I felt like I was studying a vampire manual. The actual story is intertwined within learning all about vampires from cover to cover. The story itself is great but, like I said, you have to read 10+ pages before you get back to a portion of the actual story line. The ending kind of picks up and takes off finishing the story and once I finally reached this part of the book, I enjoyed it greatly.

I downloaded this free book because I am like so many others out there that love vampire stories! I was very suprised at how good this book was! I can't believe this was free and I would have paid money for this! I didn't want this to end and I hope that the author will continue this story with a second book - it could definetly turn into a series!

I generally don't read this type/style of books, but since it was free, and I was between books, and it had a good amount of positive feedback, I thought I'd give it a try. It was a quick read and I really enjoyed it, and I'm looking forward to the next one from this author. I wanted to make sure that I gave it a good review to help entice others like myself to give it a try.

I can't believe this ebook was free! I just became a Nook owner in the last month and have read a good chunk of the free ebooks. So far this has been my favorite. I was thrilled to read there will be a sequel. I loved the characters, the story line, and most importantly it captured my attention right away. I love this genre and this is a great addition to my collection.

Can wait for part Two.

Sorry you guys but I found this book to be choppy at best. There are characters that aren't fleshed out nearly enough and the main character is fleshed out way too much. The main character 'Two' is not very believable and I wondered throughout the book how the two main characters came to know each other and then finally, barely a sentence on it...disappointing at best. I really had a hard time finishing this and kept on reading hoping it would get better...which it didn't.

I love a good vampire story! This one was a pleasant surprise, especially since it was a freebie. I eagerly await the release of the second book!

I will repeat as others have said. I cannot wait for the sequel. This was a great read. I had a hard time putting it down and could not wait to get back to it. The characters and plot were well thought out. Bravo to Christopher Buecheler for a great story!!

I downloaded this to my new Nook and had it for about 3 months before I finally read it. I wish I'd read it sooner. Aside from a few grammatical errors, it was a pretty good book. The author took a different approach to the vampire story and it make for an interesting plot. I loved Two and Theroen. Although the book didn't have a "happy" ending, it was still great. I'm looking forward to the sequel and hope it's completed very soon. I'm actually surprised this wasn't picked up by a publisher. If the plot were a bit more fleshed out and the grammarical errors fixed, it would be a book I'd pay for.

I downloaded this book to my Nook, if it wasn't free I probably wouldn't have done so. A vampire story filled with love and violence. Intriguing that our main character is a prostitute and drug addict, not your typical storybook heroine. While her background does not initially endear her to the reader she does become more likable as her life is forever changed by her lovely vampire. I do have to say I think the schizophrenic sister vamp was by far the best and most interesting character. The story isn't bad and with a bit more work I think could be very good and picked up by a publishing company.

I cant wait to read the next book. This book does sweep you off your feet. Yes the ending is sad.....but life sometimes is, and its amazing to see her pick herself up. Its detailed: so much pain the the begining chapters,amazing though.

Book was amazing. Honestly should not be a free book. I read this all the time, never gets old.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This book was amazing! I was so surprised it was good even though its free. I love Two's sarcasm and wit. TBTB isnt your typical paranormal romance where a vamp falls in love with an innocent girl and they live happily ever after. Its new and refreshing. The scenes in this book are very real. It pulls no punches so can sometimes be depressing. That is only because life is depressing. I loved it! I just read the second book and i like this one better. Im gonna read the third when it comes out.

I was looking for a story to lift my thoughts out of reality and make me forget about the clock... i found that in this story of a girl named Two. I sped through her adventure with a hunger i love to find inside of a book! Its easy to not only identify with the characters, but to feel as if they are there with you, helping you turn the pages! Read this if you dare!
