Thank you to Netgalley, Juliet Lyons and Sourcebooks Casablanca for allowing me to read and review Dating the Undead. I loved it! It was a sassy and funny read with a dollop of intrigue and adventure.
Silver Harris is kicked out of a New Year’s Eve party for throwing her drink over a woman she catches kissing her date and a well-placed kick directed at her date’s unmentionables. While out on the street, she meets a gorgeous man, who walks her home. They get along really well and end up sharing a sizzling midnight kiss to celebrate the New Year.
Silver soon realises that her sexy Irish man is a vampire but she doesn’t mind, even after he bit her, as it was the best kiss of her life.
She tells her step-sister, Jess, the next day about her exciting night. Unfortunately, Silver had no way of contacting her vampire (she didn’t get his name) and had given him a false address when he had walked her home. Jess mentioned that there was a vampire dating website called V-Date so Silver decides to join in the hopes that he is on the site. Silver goes on a few dates with vampires from V-Date but she doesn’t connect with any of them and finds herself incredibly bored.
Meanwhile, the vampire that Silver is besotted with, Logan, has been tasked by his head vampire (boss) to track down human women dating on V-Date. It is imperative that Logan glamour these women to forget about vampires so that they can keep their secrets. Ironically, the first woman Logan is instructed to glamour is Silver but he can’t bring himself to do it as he doesn’t want her to lose interest in him. This could get him in serious trouble with his boss but he thinks Silver is worth it.
At the same time, Silver is contacted by the police as they want her to go undercover on V-Date to obtain information about the vampires that she meets. She decides to do it once they agree to re-investigate her mother’s death which happened when Silver was just 9 years old. The police set up a fake account for Silver and she starts meeting up with vampires in the hopes of extracting their secrets.
Things get a bit tense with Logan ignoring his “boss’s” directive and Silver informing on the vampires to the police. Despite this, they can’t help falling in love. Where will this lead?
To complicate things further, Logan’s original sire appears on the scene. She wants to punish him for not being the murderer that she wanted him to turn into. How will this affect Silver and Logan’s romance?
After reading the blurb for this book, I knew it was going to be an enjoyable, fun read. I like Silver’s feistiness and sense of humour. I appreciated how Logan managed to maintain his humanity after all those years. The author did a great job of writing their romance and developing their characters.
This books deserves a fabulous
