Overview

Dating the Undead by Juliet Lyons

"Snarky, sexy, and steamy as a sauna." —KATIE MACALISTER, New York Times bestselling author

There's more than one way to keep a vampire up all night.

V-Date.com. It's the vampire dating site. And if you're a mortal who's getting a little too close to learning our secrets, I'm the guy who swoops in to make you forget. But don't worry: I only bite sometimes.

I was great at my job until I met Silver—sarcastic, sexy, spunky Silver. I can't bring myself to make her forget about our kind. About me. It's all I can do not to throw her down on the kitchen counter and have my way with her, fangs and all.

She says she's just looking for a good time, and I'm just the vampire to give it to her—over and over again. I went into this looking for a good tumble, but even I have to admit that things are changing between us. Good god, I want to hold her hand. In public.

Silver is the ‘it girl”, clever, pretty, mouthy and independent, an independence learned with the disappearance of her mother several years ago. When her New Year’s Eve party from hell ends with a thrown drink, a well-placed knee and a stolen Chanel jacket, she’s heading home to lick her wounds and move on when she’s suddenly face to face with a green-eyed, gorgeous Irishman. With a Twist. He’s a vampire, as instantly attracted to her fear nothing attitude as her looks and humor, as she is to the gorgeous specimen in front of her. Offering to escort her home, she’s smart enough to lead him to a false address, slinking to her own apartment later. Patrick was a gypsy in life, a young man with healing skills, when he emigrated to London he ended up accused of murder. Imprisoned on a prison ship, he was close to death when an ancient turned him, with plans to create a gang of evil-minded, conscienceless vampires to do her bidding. Years of servitude and self-hatred, Patrick left his sire and was functioning in London, serving another ancient at his nightclub that caters to human / vampire interactions. Many things are different in this story: the skills, talents and lore of the vampires is different, and there are few who know the secrets: something that Scotland Yard is desperate to discover. Because of Silver’s history, she has been recruited to the cause, set up with an identity and account on the newly popularized V-Date, and asked to share any information she learns. On the other hand, Patrick has been tasked by his new Ancient, Ronin, to find and glamor this new human on the V-Date site, with the intentions of her avoiding all vampires and the site itself. Of course, Silver’s is the first name Patrick is given - and he just can’t bring himself to do it. For a debut offering, the story is clever, moves along reasonably consistently, although the inset from Scotland Yard played more of a part closer to the end, and served to wrap up some questions in Silver’s past neatly, while challenging her own conscience in her dealings with Patrick. And their connection is electric, with an easy humor that adds to the steam. Patrick is, at heart, a good man – desperate to be worthy of Silver’s love, now that he has finally found the one. With plenty of secondary characters that add to the mix in varying ways, a tension-filled climax and a wonderful epilogue, this is a fun start to a new series, making London a clear author to watch. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I'm hooked! Writing style: Dual POVs Cover design It’s eye-catching and a bit busy, but I like it. •*¨*••*¨*••*¨*• Juliet Lyons is a new-to-me author who delivered well on her cool premise for Silver and Logan’s unconventional paranormal love story. This debut novel had interesting main and supporting characters, great pacing, good sexual tension, occasional humor and a nicely dramatic climax with a very satisfying epilogue. •*¨*••*¨*••*¨*• Coming up next: I’m sold! I was definitely intrigued by the sadness we witnessed in vampire cop Vincent’s eyes at Logan’s BBQ birthday party in the epilogue. So, I’ll be sure to collect the next standalone novel in this series and probably do another dual format read with the audiobook of Vincent’s story in Romancing the Undead. The e-book has an expected release date in October 2017, and hopefully, the audiobook release will follow shortly thereafter.

Dating the Undead puts a new twist on the vampire-human romance trope. I mean who would think of vampires using an online dating service? Definitely not me, but it works so well in the story. Logan and Silver are completely adorable and full of witty banter. I devoured this book in just a few hours and it had me laughing almost the entire time. Even though it is the first book in a series, it can be read as a standalone with no cliffhanger.  I voluntarily received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Silver Harris has had it with men. When she runs into a vampire for the first time, her attraction and his mannerisms makes her think it’s time to try a different kind of man. She decides to try a dating app that sets humans up with vampires. When her first date turns out to be Logan Byrne, her mysterious vampire from a few days before, she can’t deny the attraction. When I read the description of this book, I thought would be funny. There really weren’t many funny parts to the book, but it was still a pretty good story. Silver’s character was a bit extreme sometimes but Logan was able to offset her. It did take me a little bit to get into but I still enjoyed it. I recommend. **I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

[I received this ARC from Sourcebooks Casablancas with no expectation of a review in exchange] What a hawt and naughty good time! Silver Harris is snarky and sassy. The girl likes having the last word--even if that final statement is a slammed door. She doesn’t put up with kisses on the side. She doesn’t care for superior tones. That Chanel coat she is wearing is compensation for a ruined New Year’s celebration; not saying she is a klepto but Silver believes in reparations. The true rewards of the last night of the year is the satisfactory knee to the jewels to her cheating date and a surprise walk home with a very sexy vampire. And vampires are as seductive as all the tabloids report. Logan Byrne has surely rescued Silver from a shamefaced return to lame festivities after an Academy winning exit. The chit has moxie; truly charmed, Logan is delighted with her antics. The unexpectedly sweet offer of her neck in thanks for his assistance is something he can’t pass up. And the minx tastes intoxicating. Just his luck. Logan’s employer sends him back her way days later--not to reunite them though. Logan is to glamour Silver from any interest in bloodsuckers. In following out instructions Logan’s task will turn her against the likes of him. This vampire can’t give up the woman who makes his still heart pitter-patter even if it means losing his afterlife. It took a few pages for me to get into this book because at first it was a touch goofy. Fortunately the characters pulled me through that sketchy start; this book is fantastic! Imagine Buffy The Vampire Slayer, mix it with the TV show Lucifer then dust it liberally with the saltiness of True Blood. Dating the Undead is the oishi taste of that dish! This vampy ride travels a rogue path. Forget your garlic, crucifixes, wooden stakes, and silver nitrate. These aren’t your grandma’s vampires, and they don’t hide in coffins. Out of the closet blood drinkers are socialite celebrities seducing willing wantons. When a V-Dating website facilitates hook-up services for gullible humans with perfect predators Scotland Yard sees the perfect opportunity to infiltrate the vampire community in search of the evil that dead men do. It’s a chance to deconstruct immortal psychology and solve murders committed through the centuries. And if you still need a reason to pick up Dating The Undead I assure you that Vera--formerly known by the stage name Etta Marlow who played Susie De Sousa in Girl Uptown with Gregor Lane; Vera, who won an Oscar for Days Like These with Vic Stevens back in the day; Vera who reduces suave, sexy, worldly Logan Byrne to a fluttering-lashes fanboy--will have you laughing aloud. With nothing new under the sun for the jaded nonagenarian her wicked insights are hysterical. Silver and Vera will steal your heart if you give them a moment’s blind eye. Pick up Dating the Undead! I can’t wait for Inspector Vincent Ferrer’s love story Romancing the Undead, I await it with bated breath. Or if I am honest, I’m panting for it. Thank you Ms. Juliet Lyons for this sweet and spicy pairing.

Dating The Undead was a little less what I expected but had some things I totally wasn't expecting yet still managed to keep my attention despite some areas where the story hit a couple snags and lingered too long in some places I felt could have done without the added plot and useless character interactions. That being said, I did like that the characters mostly carried the story - I do like heavy character plot than actual story plot sometimes since I tend to have a habit of getting deeply invested in the who is who, how, and why they are the way they are, their backgrounds and histories and all the little tid bits that tend to get left in the wind in a lot of books. Dating the Undead includes a lot of past history but sadly not really in the way I was hoping. As a whole Dating the Undead didn't quite feel totally fleshed out or expanded in areas I felt could have used a little extra attention and a little long in areas I felt could have been done without all together however I still liked our h/h, I liked their journey together even with the whole little too heavy too obsessed too soon. I let that go so I could sit back and enjoy the ride without paying much attention to the road signs on the trip. Dating the Undead was still very much worth the read as long as I didn't look too deep and the humor was very much liked. Also the ending hook grabbed me enough that I do plan on picking up the next book in this series.

Silver and Logan, a vampire, meet and kiss on New Year ’s Eve. As a result, Silver decides to join a dating site that is for vampires. Unfortunately, it’s not really working out for her. The police have a proposition for her that she accepts and suddenly Logan is back in her life and things get a little sticky. Silver is not my favorite heroine. She annoyed me and it felt like she tried too hard to be a tough chick and it just didn’t work. Logan was a pretty decent hero but not really all alpha the way I like. I struggled with this one for the first half but the second half seemed to smooth out and I was suddenly very invested in this couple and their situation. Told in dual POV it moved pretty well, especially the last fifty percent. There is no abuse or triggers to speak of unless violence by and to vampires isn’t your thing.

Dating the Undead by Juliet Lyons is the 1st book in her Undead Dating Service series. This was a different type of paranormal story line revolving around vampires and humans. Silver Harris, our heroine, is a beautiful feisty sexy young girl, who secretly is trying to find the person responsible for killing her mother. Silver starts dating vampires, which in this book, seems the norm for human girls who find them sexy and attractive. Silver has agreed to go undercover using the V-Date.com site to help the police learn more information about how vampires live and how to stop them. Logan Byrne is close to 200 years old, and is a gorgeous vampire with sexy green eyes. He saves Silver from a bad vampire, and in no time their attraction for each other is hotter than hell. Logan works for Ronin, the ancient vampire who he is blood bound to; Little does Logan know that the assignment he is given, will bring him to Silver. Their relationship was great, as Silver was a piece of work, with her off the cuff sassy comments, and I loved them together. They were so much fun, not to mention totally steamy. Logan realizes he is falling in love with Silver, having feelings he has not had for so long. Because he knows his boss will not approve, and his fear of his old dangerous sire coming back to haunt him, Logan will decide to break up with Silver to keep her safe. Once he finds out that Silver is working for the police, Logan knows he has to protect her, and also knows he can’t live without her. At this point, all hell is about to break loose, with Logan’s sire returning putting both of their lives together. During this time, Silver will also find out who was responsible for her mother’s murder. I enjoyed Dating the Undead, mainly because the main characters were lots of fun, likeable and their chemistry was off the wall. After the exciting & surprise climax twist, there was an epilogue that moved forward three years in time, which was a nice touch. Wonderful start of this new series by Juliet Lyons. I recommend Dating the Undead to read if you enjoy paranormal romances with vampires.

Dating the Undead,  Juliet Lyons Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance, Sci-fi and Fantasy First book in a new series and writing this I’m still undecided exactly how I feel. I didn’t Not like it but I wasn’t grabbed by it either... The premise is good, sounded fun, a vampire dating site. No risk of relationships there you’d think, not with the potential age differences ;-) That’s just what Silver is looking for, sex and spice without the other guy wanting a HEA for them. Well, I liked Silver – and then there were parts of her I didn’t. When it comes to her mum and how she died she feels a bit shallow almost, especially at the end when she learns more. “Oh, that’s how she died. OK then, what shall we do now?” that’s sort of how her reaction feels to me. Given all her former questions it just felt underwhelming somehow.   She gets on with her dad but isn’t really very nice to her step-mum, and I didn’t know why except that she’s acting like a teen and she’s not, she’s an adult. I think this shallowness about her is what I didn’t like. I did like her independence and confidence, but she was just that bit too unfeeling. She has a great kiss with Logan, so joins V Date in search of more, and she’s happy to let a total stranger, one who could kill her easily, bite her. The police interaction was just weird, that’s all I can say about that! Logan, a great guy, loyal to his vampire lord/boss and yet the whole Anastasia saga make him look weak and feeble to me. Somehow after all those years vampires have been around, most of them hidden from humans, you’d think they’d come up with a way round these rules that constrain them, even when keeping them risks so much. Then that ending, rounds off the story neatly but too slick for me, a bit too convenient...I’m not a quick fix girl, I like solutions to come from things we know, to be worked hard for. It sounds like there’s a lot I didn’t like here and that’s not true, it was a fun read, some good humour, and its a well written story, with potential for more. I did like the sound of Cop Vincent, subject of the next book. Maybe its just first-book-in-series syndrome, where it has such a lot to achieve, setting out story for this book and future ones and introducing different characters. Its a hard ask for any book, and maybe for ones like this that also have a humorous side its more difficult. Its was an ok read for me, I didn’t not like it, and bits made me smile, but its not one I’d read again. If you want a fun and light supernatural read with a gentle HEA this is for you. I just need a bit more depth and angst. Stars: Three, an ok read, fun in parts but a bit light for me. ARC supplied for review purposes by Netgalley and Publishers

It’s Bridget Jones with vampires in this fresh and funny paranormal romance from debut author Juliet Lyons When Silver Harris kisses sexy Irish vampire Logan Byrne on New Year's Eve, she knows other humans just won't suffice. Convinced she'll never see him again, she joins the uber-popular vampire dating site, V-Date.com. What Silver doesn't know is that the site is more dangerous than she could ever imagined, and soon she's in over her head. When Logan returns, sparks fly and attraction sizzles, but they'll have to escape some very real demons if they have any chance of lasting forever. Review: That blurb really does a good job of giving the feel of this book. It is a little fun, a little sexy with a little mystery thrown in for good measure. Silver is awesome! Loved her spunk and inner voice and she can kick butt when needed. Logan has such a sad and tragic past before meeting Silver, from his start in life to becoming a vampire. I loved the ending for the two of them, I thought it was perfect a wove the story complete. Silver and Logan have great chemistry too. The suspense and mystery's that are going on throughout the story with regards to Silver's mom and with the V-Date.com were unique and fun to read. Loved the story and cannot wait to read more by this Author! 4.5Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

'Dating The Undead' by Juliet Lyons is book One in the "V-Date.Com" series. This is the story of Silver and Logan. Silver and Logan happen to meet on New Year's eve when Silver is kicked out of a bar and Logan was coming by. They talk and they 'kiss'. Logan asks for her name but he doesn't give his. Silver knows he is a Vampire and thinks the bind blowing 'kiss' was because he was a vampire. This was a good vampire romance story. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

Dating The Undead is a quirky British paranormal rom-com. Silver Harris is young, funky and fun. Logan Byrne is an old hunky and sexy as hell vampire with a delicious Irish accent. The book starts with a meet cute and then the pacing gets a bit wobbly. I loved the twist at the end. If you grunt it through the slow bits this is a fun read.
