Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.
But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.
Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die. (Not that you’re going to believe her. No one ever does.)
But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It’s a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.
The problem is, Lucien’s already dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.
And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.
Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future. . . .
If she even has one.
After a hectic week of dentist appointments, toothaches, school field trips and many other things, I was finally able to really start reading this book and enjoying it. It took me a few chapters to really start enjoying this read. This was my first read by this author, but I had heard many wonderful things about her books. This is not a quick read. With this ARC copy, it is 451 pages long. So I knew I had to sit myself down and just read without interruptions to fully enjoy this book.
I am so glad I gave this book a second chance after the hectic week had ended. I think if I wouldn’t have given it the second chance, I would not have realized the wonderful story and characters that the author brought to life on those 451 pages. I loved how the author subtly pokes fun at the vampire craze that has erupted in the paranormal book world. Her jabs at it were great. Even the character name of Meena was great. If you are wondering what I am talking about, think Edward/Dracula/Bill/Eric all in one book with a touch of Sookie here and there. Meena is psychic and can sense when people are going to die. Not a fun talent to have. Plus she writes soap operas and must now write a storyline about vampires which she loathes.
A book filled with witty writing, a sexy hero, a talented heroine who learns to embrace her talent, and an all around great read! One that will leave you wanting to take a bite out of the vampire books again!
Very Good! I would recommend this book! 4 STARS
