When rejection comes back to bite you…

Jordan’s life sucks. Her boyfriend, Michael, dumped her, slept his way through half the student body, and then killed himself. But now, somehow, he appears at her window every night, begging her to let him in.

Jordan can’t understand why he wants her, but she feels her resistance wearing down. After all, her life — once a broken record of boring parties, meaningless hookups, and friends she couldn’t relate to — now consists of her drinking alone in her room as she waits for the sun to go down.

Michael needs to be invited in before he can enter. All Jordan has to do is say the words….


When I saw this book, I was interested mainly because of the cover. I love cover art! This wasn’t a horrible book, but it wasn’t a great book either. It gave new twists to the vampire myths, but the storyline was lacking a lot of depth. It didn’t capture my interest, but I knew I wanted to finish reading it because I had gotten so far into the book. I kept hoping the author would turn it around and it would come together better. It didn’t. I just could not bring myself to actually care what happened to the characters in the story. The cover says ‘He’ll enter at her own risk’–well, read at your own risk.


A Decent Read.
Has Some Drawbacks Though.

    I read this one a while ago and picked it up for the same reason. Great cover. But was disappointed in the vampire part of the book. I thought Jordan’s anxiety problems were way more interesting.
