A Quick Bite by Lynsay Sands

Summary from goodreads.com

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.

Review  

So I’m back into vampire books, and I see this one, so I thought I’d give it a try.  In my opinion, this book starts off really slow.  And it’s a little confusing.  So basically you have Lissianna Argeneau, a vampire who faints at the sight of blood.  She goes to her mother’s house for her birthday and finds a man tied to her bad and assumes he is “dinner”, but it turns out he’s a doctor that her mother has kidnapped (but not really, since he got in her car on his own, via mind control {very, very stupid in my opinion}).  Marguerite, Lissi’s mother, would like Dr. Gregory Hewitt to cure Lissi of her phobia of blood (which he doesn’t do, btw, but that’s not a spoiler).

I didn’t really like the author’s writing style.  She was all over the board on this book.  There were gobs of characters, many of whom were unnecessary, all with stupid names (in fairness, this story is set in Canada, and the exception is Thomas of the vampires). 

And these vampires aren’t traditional vampires, they feed from a “blood bank”.  Really?  The book kind of picked up in the middle and I started to like it, but it wasn’t until about 66% in.  The ending was boring and pretty predictable, but I liked the characters enough to give book 2 a try (there are about 12 books in this series, all about other members of the Argeneau family).

Happy reading.
