Blood doesn't just make her who she is... it also makes her what she is.
Like being a 16-year-old vampire isn't hard enough, Tessa's throwback human genes make her an outcast among her relatives. But try as she might, she can't get a handle on the vampire lifestyle and all the... blood.
Turning her back on the vamp world, she embraces the human teenage lifestyle - high school, peer pressure, and finding a boyfriend. Jared manages to stir something in her blood. He's smart and fun and oh, so cute. But Tessa's dream of a having the perfect boyfriend turns into a nightmare when vampires attack the movie theater and kidnap her date.
Once again, Tessa finds herself torn between the human world and the vampire one. Will blood own out? Can she make peace with who she is - as well as what?

The plot line of this story is actually pretty good, as is the character development--at least for some characters. The problems lie in two directions: the narrator sounds as though she was pulled from doing voice overs for real estate listings, and the writer, while imaginative, has difficulty writing smoothly. Lowe's narrative and dialogue are clunky and poorly thought out. This book could have done with a good editor and a far better narrator.
I liked it enough--even with the deadpan narration--to purchase the second in the series, but it's literally painful to listen to, and I can't imagine ever listening to them again. If there is another in the series, I will be buying it on Kindle.
The other problem I had with the books is a lack of general background. It seemed as though this series really needed a detailed prologue.
