Overview

A single mom gets a tasty bite of undead romance in the second novel in the Broken Heart series.

Ever since a master vampire became possessed and bit a bunch of parents, the town of Broken Heart, Oklahoma, has catered to those of us who don’t rise until sunset—even if that means PTA meetings at midnight.
 
As for me, Eva LeRoy, town librarian and single mother to a teenage daughter, I’m pretty much used to being “vampified.” You can’t beat the great side effects: no crow’s-feet or cellulite! But books still make my undead heart beat—and, strangely enough, so does Lorćan the Loner. My mama always told me everyone deserves a second chance.  Still, it’s one thing to deal with the usual undead hassles: rival vamps, rambunctious kids adjusting to night school, and my daughter’s new boyfriend, who’s a vampire hunter, for heaven’s sake. It’s quite another to fall for the vampire who killed you...

The second in the Broken Heart Oklahoma series, "Don't Talk Back To Your Vampire" tells the tale of Broken heart librarian Eva. Eva was killed and turned into a vampire a few months back, when Lorcan, a vampire suffering from a disease called 'the taint' went on a spree and murdered several housewives and a househusband. These deceased were immediately turned into vampires by a vampire polictical group with plans to take over the town and turn it into a safe haven for all things unworldly. Eva and her 12 year old daughter are adjusting to their new lives, when Eva finds herself with new vamp side effect powers. She has an effinity for animals and they are drawn to her. She is also able to mind read animals that were once human. This just gets her involved in a mess and a power play when the band of Wraiths and even an Ancient want to get to her. Locan tries to protect her but he has his own secrets. This book was a quick, lighthearted read. At times the story is humourous but I think the author thinks she is funnier than she really is. That is unfortunate because from her notes and other things I have read I can tell she is just a fabulous person. I am all for quick, quirky reads but the biggest fault of this series it that the author doesn't do enough description and she leaves things hanging frequently and the reader is expected to fill in the gaps. The basic plot of the series is a winner. The characters, although they too could use some more definition, are good and likeable. I love the kid/parent interactions but there need to be more of them if this series is working the mommy angle. Still, I really enjoyed this one more than the first and I have the next one in my room, ready to be read. I can hope this series will continue to improve. I hope it does because I do see a lot of potential.

I liked this one better, the main Character is not as silly as the previous lead lady. Eva seems to be a little more sensible and takes things in her stride to some extent.

Another mind candy book, this one is a great escape but again don't think too hard about it all. Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Don't Talk Back to Your Vampire by Michelle Bardsley is the 2nd book in the Broken Heart series and was a fun read. I really enjoyed the first book and was excited when I found this one at the library. Eva is the town librarian and another one of the new vampires that was formed after Lorcan attacked. She is dealing with all of the issues that go along with being a vampire as well as a single mother to a teenage girl. And then she realizes that she has to deal with her growing attraction to Lorcan the vampire who killed her.This was a fun, enjoyable read that I picked up and then couldn't put down. I enjoyed the chemistry between Eva and Lorcan and was rooting for them to find their happy ending. Eva was a strong main character and I liked reading about her. I identified with her love of books (who wouldn't?) and her love of animals. While I didn't love this one as much as I did the first book in this series, I did enjoy it and will be looking for the third soon. A great series so far and I do recommend if you enjoy paranormal romance.

What kind of book do you get when you mix the chick-lit sass of a soccer mom with the urban fantasy cool of a vampire clan? A really clever book, that's what. As if Evangeline (Eva) LeRoy didn't have her hands full already with her teenage daughter and running Broken Heart, Oklahoma's library, she's been vampified. Stuck on a liquid diet and with a new 'hot mama' make-over courtesy of Jess from the first book, Eva's life has certainly done a 180. Ever since she was turned critters of all kinds flock to her like she's some sort of magnet for animals. From squirrels and deer to the elusive black wolf who won't get close enough she can touch him she's discovering she has a new power, the power to communicate with and command shifters. This new power comes in very handy with the Wraiths letting loose vampires they've tried to cure of the taint. Though lycanthrope blood worked for Lorcan, the vampire who killed the eleven vampires created in book one, it hasn't worked for these twisted hybrids. But who is behind it all and what do they want with Lorcan and Eva? Though focused much more on the events involving the Consortium and the Wraiths, fear not my dear romance readers, there's plenty of sensual tension and chemistry between Eva and Lorcan. You'll learn more about the Ancients, werewolves and Johnny Angelo & his evil cat Lucifer this time too! I really enjoyed Eva as the single mom raising a teenaged daughter, between wondering about her daughter's vampire slayer boyfriend and trying to tell her potential suitors there's only one guy she's interested in. This is a paranormal with real heart and while lighter, fluffier reading than the heavy-weights of the genre this series is going onto my favorites shelf with the first book of this excellent series.

What I Loved: I laughed, I cried, and I started wondering if all the hot Gaelic speaking men lived in some little town in Oklahoma. I really loved Lorcan and Eva, they were my kind of couple. They both had self-esteem issues, responsibilities, and were strong yet vulnerable on their own. Other than being vampires, they were both very real characters.What I Liked: I love that Michele has created this world where she can push the boundaries. It seems like a very real town and all these parents are dealing with very real issues: how to do right by their kids, how to set up a working schedule, and how to blend their new lives in to have the least impact on those they love. The fact that they are vampire parents now have just added to those single parent responsibilities. It is very fun to read.Any complaints? I actually have one but it is more about the teaser that was in the last book. You kind of find out that it was misleading and really not even in the book at all. I am a teaser fan so that irked me a little.Why I gave it a 4: Lorcan is almost my perfect kind of anti-hero: he is well read, smart, kind, giving, protective, and if he was just a shifter/were instead of a vampire he would be perfect :) I really enjoyed this book from beginning to end! It did what I was hoping-transported me out of this world and to Broken Heart Oklahoma where I could escape for a few hours. Also I loved the fairytale that was woven through the story.Who I would recommend it too: PNR lovers who like fun lighter reads and chick-lit readers who can handle a little paranormal.

What is the book about? Eva LeRoy is the town librarian and another single parent that has been turned vampire in the town of Broken Heart, OK. Not much has changed with her lifestyle, even her teenage daughter seems to be okay with her mother's new lifestyle. Eva is trying her best to keep a positive outlook on things, at least her stretch marks and crows feet have suddenly disappeared. The only downfall is she has to sleep in the basement of her home, that doubles as the town library. Eva isn't even upset that Lorcan O'Halloran has turned her into a vamp, she understands that he was sick from the virus, but Lorcan is having a difficult time forgiving himself as he mopes around town. What did I think of the book? Another funny and romantic story by Bardsley. She hooked me in when I read her first book, and now I'm addicted. I can't wait to read the rest of the series, to see how all the single parents in Broken Heart are coping with becoming a vampire. I promise this is a series you must start!

I was a bit skeptical starting this series, but it only took several pages to get me hooked, I flew through all of the books and am now impatiently waiting for the next to come out (Sep. 2011). If you like vampires, werewolves & mythical/magical creatures, these books are for you cause they have it all, as well as some great humor.

This book is a great edition to the Broken Heart Series . I laughed and cried with this book. I must have started this review at least 5 times and still cant properly describe how this book made me feel.It tackles a very tough issue with facing ones mortality and lack there of . A topic that is very hard to do without messing up your story. Michele Bardsley did a fantastic job! You must read it to understand fully.
