This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Sex, blood and rock 'n' roll

Immortal Dilemma is the hottest band in the Las Vegas vampire rock scene. They draw insatiable fans from around the globe, thanks to a supernatural attraction called Bloodlust. Tristan craved such an opportunity to fill his empty mortal life, and now he has eternity to earn his place among the legends of rock 'n' roll debauchery. Callie always feared that Tristan’s excesses would get him into trouble, but she never thought they’d lead him to immortality. To reconnect with him, she must weave her way through a world not only that she had no idea existed, but that does not welcome her.

Blade turned down a spot in Immortal Dilemma after learning what he must sacrifice for that lifestyle. He finds Callie a refreshing change from the girls in the vampire rock scene. When Callie drags Blade back into the world of Immortal Dilemma, his resistance drives her into the waiting arms of Tristan, who shows her the true meaning of Bloodlust. But the very things that Callie fights so hard to save are the very things that fight to destroy her.

Because...Who Knows Why?

I'm not usually one to complain about a free book, but I feel obligated to warn anyone who might actually spend money on this.

It's bad.

This is the kind of vampire book that has recently (i.e. since Twilight) made me embarrassed to admit that I love vampire stories the way I love breathing. And that kind of makes me mad.

Sure, Callie is an 18 year old girl who makes mistakes, but they're not very interesting ones, even if you throw in a hot undead rock star.

No real plot to be found here, no character development either. The only real emotion evoked by this tale is to feel very sorry for Blade, the other point to this sorry love triangle, for getting mixed up in the pages of this supposed narrative.

And to make matters worse, the narrator kind of has a lisp, or at least performs the main character as having one, and it is extremely annoying.

Beware, beware. Here, there be BAD writing.

Because... it was great

It was a great book because you don't know who to vote for, Tristan or Blade. Callie was so naive about the vampire world when she went on vacation to Las Vegas and tracked down her old friend, the rocker, Tristan. Blade was such a cutie and genuine. I don't know who I would have voted for to be with Callie. The hot rock star that she knew way back when or Blade, the wholesome, good looking, friendly guy she fell in love with. The end kind of left you hanging which is why I love the "Romance" package, I can get rid of this book in my library and start on the next in series. The narrator did a great job with the characters and their personalities.
