Book Review in 10 Sentences or Less

The Girl's Guide to Vampires by Kate MacAlister
My 1st attempt at Katie MacAlister didn't go so well, but so many people sang her praises that I decided to give her another try. I read The Girl's Guide, the first in her Dark Ones series, and well, I'm still not impressed. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it either. She didn't develop the characters enough to make me care about them. The story line, though typical for a vampire romance, was interesting enough, but the beginning of the book hinted at a steamy triangle that never materialized. In fact, the vampire seemed kind of nerdy and pathetic. I have the next book in the series and I will read it, but I'm not dying to sink my teeth into it-pun intended. Kudos to whomever comes up with the titles, let's just hope her writing improves so that the books are just as witty & entertaining.
