From Amazon :
That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course!

Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?

Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.

Book Review of A Quick Bite.
I liked A Quick Bite the first time I read it but unfortunately the story wasn’t as interesting during this re-read.

One of the reasons for this is because I found it hard to believe that the heroine did not realize that her vampire identity might have been compromised. There were so many obvious clues that someone was after her life, all using classic anti-vampire weapons, yet she never had any idea that something was up until the end.

The other reason was the explanation for vampirism in the story. It somehow took away the paranormal element of these creatures of the night and made them seem rather normal. While this is intentional, I just could not get into the idea of vampires being no different than mortals.

Overall, the only part of the story that I enjoyed were the characters. The Argeneaus are an intriguing bunch and their loyalty to each other very sweet. It was certainly fun to watch how each of them tries to help Lissianna.

My conclusion : Borrow this for some light reading. While I enjoyed the book, I do not have a strong urge to re-read it or pick up the next book.

  1. Thanks for the honest review. I love a good vampire book, but this one does not sound that good. I will borrow it if I get the chance, but I will most likely not buy it.

    Here from CEP!

  2. I enjoy Lynsay Sands books and find she is switching them up a bit. They still do revolve around the life mate finding but I do enjoy them a lot!
