Description: What’s worse than falling in love with a straight girl? Falling in love with a straight girl who drinks blood. And not even in a goth way.

High school senior Mindy Murphy, has been questioning her small town life forever and, more recently, her sexuality. Maybe it has something to do with her new friend, Lucia West. When they were kids they used to be besties, until Lucia grew a head taller and a cup size bigger. Now she’s captain of the cheer team, winner of the Boyfriend Olympics, and voted least likely to remember Mindy at their high school reunion.
In short, possibly the worst person alive for Mindy to crush on. Especially after Lucia’s bitten by a vampire. Now the only way to keep her alive is to get her blood, and the only way to cure her is to slay the vampire that turned her.

Who knows, maybe after they get this vampire business settled, Lucia can explain to Mindy why she kissed her.

Review: This book was a wild ride, sadly not one I really enjoyed… Some scenes and interactions just were really overdone for my personal taste. Drunk dialogues can be really exhausting (in books as well as in real life).

But of course there were parts I enjoyed. The friendship between Mindy and Lucia is a really fun one and I wouldn’t have minded to read about them being friends for hours. Their romantic relationship was… okay? The sex scenes were very steamy and in them they did have chemistry.

I liked how disgusting some things were as well. A horror novel by this author would be a lot of fun, I’d say.
