Review: Bite Me! by: Melissa Francis

Summary: AJ Ashe isn't your typical seventeen-year-old vampire-as if there is such a thing! She's stuck in the middle of a huge fight between her two BFF's. Her ex-boyfriend-whom she's totally in love with,by the way-is now her stepbrother. A former classmate-who,um,she may or may not have turned into a vampire-is stalking her. And now,apparently,the fate if humankind lies in her little undead hands. Whatever happened to the good old day,when all a vampire girl had to worry about was the occasional zit and hiding her taste for blood?

Review: When I picked Bite Me! up I thought I was going to pick up a cute,fluffy book but instead I picked up a thrill ride with a hint of cuteness.

Bite Me! starts off with a wedding. But not just any normal wedding,well for A.J. You see her mom is getting married to her boyfriend's dad. Forced to break up since now they are brother and sister breaks A.J's heart,but this is just the beginning of her problems. From getting into fights with her best friend to maybe turning her crush into a vampire A.J takes you on a thrill ride.

I really liked most of the characters. A.J. was a funny character and handled most of her problems without being annoying. However,I found her to be very annoying in the beginning. Ryan,A.J's ex-boyfriend seemed like a pervert/jerk in the beginning but toward the middle/end he became very swoon worthy and Malia was a very trustworthy best friend whom I really liked.

Bridget,A.J's other best friend was a bitch. She didn't believe A.J a lot and would laugh at something serious that A.J was trying to tell her. She also didn't have much of a back story. She just came in,acted like a bitch and left. Noah was a big-time pervert i hated how they tried to make him look so nice.

Bite Me! took me about 50 pages to really get into and some of the vampire history they squeezed in really confused me. However,it was very addicting and I'm looking forward to the sequel.

Overall: It was a thrill ride with unexpected twists,turns,uphills and downhills,but was a great ride.

4 stars

The Sequel Love Sucks! comes out July 27,2010!
