SWIPE RIGHT FOR MR. BITE
Mila Hart’s first experience with the hot new vampire dating site is a complete disaster. Turns out, her date is wanted for murder! But things turn around when she’s rescued by dashing vampire cop Vincent Ferrer. Dangerous and drop dead gorgeous, he’s just the vampire hottie Mila was hoping for.
Haunted by his past, Vincent can’t risk falling in love again, even if Mila charms him more than anyone he’s ever met. But when the killer from Mila’s first date seeks her out, Vincent is the only one who can protect her. Protecting his heart is a different story...
Mila Hart signed up for V-Date for a bit of an adventure. She had been living in Australia and dating the same guy for two years when he announced he was going back to Brazil to live with his wife, an ex-lingerie model, and his two kids. WTF? Poor Mila. Anyway, it’s her first V-Date and though it’s interesting she finds she’s not attracted to the guy, Jeremiah, at all. She’s having an awkward conversation with him when he mesmerizes/compels her to go outside with him where he almost kills her! She’s saved by Inspector Vincent Ferrar. While she didn’t have any attraction to her V-Date she is extremely attracted to the Inspector. Despite the attraction, after her initial interview at Scotland Yard, she decides not to assist them any further. Her “almost” killer is wanted for a few other deaths as well and Mila figures they’ll catch him without her help.
Mila changes her mind about her would-be killer when she comes home and finds that he’s tossed her apartment. This is especially scary because she never told him where she lived. She ends up staying temporarily at Vincent’s apartment and this ends up being the close quarters they needed to act on their attraction to one another. In fact, they can hardly be in each other’s company without ripping their clothes off.
When Vincent figures out there’s a lot more to the killer then just random killings he’s determined to stay with Mila 24/7 until the killer is caught.
This was another cute book by Juliet Lyons. I really liked book one in this series so I was excited when I got the chance to read book two. I did find that Drop Dead Gorgeous didn’t have the same humor in it that Dating the Undead did. This was a little disappointing as I really liked that about DtU.
I really like Vincent and Mila both separately and together. I was happy that they found each other and liked that they got their HEA. I didn’t care for the excessive amount of sex scenes in the book. I got that that’s what was pulling them together initially but after a while it just got incredibly old.
Despite that issue with the book I liked it and recommend it. I will definitely keep reading this series to see what happens next.
Rating: 3.75/4 out of 5
