Publisher's Summary

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead. Turns out my savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now I've traded sweating over my thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan "Lord o' the Manor" Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred-year-old vampire, he has centuries' worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects my gratitude---and servitude. Right. But my burgeoning powers (all of a sudden, I'm surprisingly handy with some serious weaponry), an inconvenient sunlight allergy, and Ethan's attitude are the least of my concerns. Someone's still out to get me. Is it the rogue vampire who bit me? A vamp from a rival House? An angry mob bearing torches? My initiation into Chicago's nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war---and there will be blood.

Bite into another Chicagoland Vampires novel.

    "Great story, so-so reader.
    "

    I love the Chicagoland vampire series. I recommend all of them. This reader is rather flat, very little excitement in her voice.

    Story
    "Cliche, 2D characters, meh narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    people who want a cookie cutter vampire romance and doesnt mind immature and unrealistic characters


    Would you ever listen to anything by Chloe Neill again?

    Nope


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Cynthia Holloway?

    The chick who did vampire academy


    What character would you cut from Some Girls Bite?

    The main character. I can deal with side characters being bad, but Marot is so immature and is just poorly written. She was the reason I can't finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunate. I thought the mystery could convince me to finish, but I just can't deal with the main character and the terrible romance and situations that don't make sense

    "Painfully Robotic Narration"

    I've read this series on my own and recently downloaded the audiobook. I couldn't get past the 1st few paragraphs. The narrator has some inflection, but is so painfully robotic that I wanted to reach through and throat punch her. 😡

    Story
    "similar to bodice ripper formula"
    Where does Some Girls Bite rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    He's a jerk, She's attracted to him but fortunately it deviates from most bodice rippers. Except for falling for a studly jerk the female character is smart and strong minded. The story is interesting but sometimes a bit melodramatic. Could use a bit more character development. Still I'm glad I bought the book even If i'll probably listen to it just once. I plan to buy the next 2 in the series but I don't know if I'll follow through to the end.


    Would you recommend Some Girls Bite to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. I'm not into studly jerks for male leads.


    Which character – as performed by Cynthia Holloway – was your favorite?

    The Sentinel


    Any additional comments?

    if she'd fallen into bed with him and lost her brains and independence as a result I would not have bought the next in the series. I'm interested enough in what happens next to start book 2.

    Story
    "Been there, done that."

    Not a great story there were just too many annoyances that didn't make this a very good. For example, everything came too easy for Merit, there was no strife or goals to achieve. It was also way to convenient for all the skills that Merit has by just becoming a vampire and then to have a roommate with equally powerful skills but not know it. Merit also whined way to much about becoming a vampire, instead of being grateful to be alive. Then she is placed in an important role but she is a novice and doesn't even know all the rules of the house or how to be a sentinel. The sophomoric structure of the vampire houses drove me nuts, too shallow for my taste. The actual vampire role is just an afterthought and not original at all, I would rate this a 2.5. I will not be continuing on with this series, I have way too many audios in my library to listen to, than to continue with a boring Twilight wannabe. Narrator was okay, but she did put an overly abundance of snark into her reading and didn't have much inflection for characters.

    "Loved this story and the narrator."

    I loved this story and the narrator. There were a couple of chapters that were almost hard to listen while driving as they were racked with sexual chemistry. Nothing graphic. Just pure attraction. I felt that I was part of the journey becoming a newly born vampire. Not just a vampire, but a strong above average vampire that sees things in her own unique way. Loved the story. My first rating of all 5's.

    The narration was one of the best I've listed to so far. Will look for more books by this narrator.

    Story
    "Anemic!"

    Ye gods! Eleven hours of nothing happening. Dull amateurish writing. "I'm a vampire now". "OK, how's that working out for you". (All right, not a quote, but it might as well have been).

    Bad editing (author is too fond of using some words again and again). A vampire novel totally without suspense. And most of the blood in the book comes from donor bags in the fridge!

    There is an embryo here for some interesting conflicts to come. But I will not waste more time with this series.
