Quickie Review: Sex and the Single Vampire by Katie MacAlister

This book falls into my Vampire Reading Challenge.

I read and enjoyed Katie MacAlister's Green Dragon series, but couldn't get into her Silver Dragon series. I wasn't sure if I was going to like this series and was pleasantly surprised; this was a cute book! It was a light fun vampy read. Honestly, for the first few pages I thought I was going to hate it - the heroine, Allie, seemed to be Too Stupid to Live. But then, as I continued to read, her character grew on me and got more interesting. Her interaction with her Dark One was fun. Her two female friends, Joy and Roxy, got on my nerves a bit, but I enjoyed Allie's ghosts - especially the teenager, Jem, and Antonio, the Conquistador. I've got two more books from this series in my TBR that I'll be pulling out when I'm looking for something light and fun. I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Disclaimer: I won this book from Kris (The Cajun Book Lady). Thanks Kris!
