I'm a PhD theatre student who loves not proofreading my reviews (sorry) because I have to do enough of that in school. :)

    Seventeen-year-old Alice Bonham's life feels out of control after she meets Jack. With his fondness for pink Chuck Taylors and New Wave hits aside, Jack's unlike anyone she's ever met. Then she meets his brother, Peter. His eyes pierce through her, and she can barely breathe when he's around. Even though he can't stand the sight of her, she's drawn to him. But falling for two very different guys isn't even the worst of her problems. Jack and Peter are vampires, and Alice finds herself caught between love and her own blood....

    Story

    I feel like a few brain cells died, flinging themselves over a cliff just to escape this horrid nonsense. I'd give it all 1 star if it weren't YA but even then I feel like teenagers are being cheated. Simply put, this is Twilight watered down.

    No plot, no endgame (at least where I'm at just before the start of Part 2), Alice is a shallow, self-absorbed, 17-year-old idiot who has clearly never heard the word vampire despite throwing up werewolf as an excuse for Jack's strange behavior. Her only friend is a slut (no really, the girl does nothing but go out, get drunk, and have one-night stands), she hardly gives a thought to her mother who's apparently working 70 hours a week, and her brother is a shadow of a character. She gets saved from being attacked and immediately gets in the car with a complete stranger who is 25 who focuses all his attention on her because "there's just something about her that's different from other girls." He does all these weird things and she just keeps going with the flow while having midless drivel float through her brain for us readers to see how truely clueless she is. Ugh.

    The narration is fair at best and mediocre most of the time, but then, it fits the story just perfect.

    I bought this during a sale and boy do I feel stupid for going ahead and getting the next few novels just to save a little. Part of me thinks I want to finish it just to get my money out of it but the other part of me thinks I want to save the remaining brain cells. Save yourself the credit.
