Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there’s another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood…an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn’t hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger’s bedroom pretty quickly – once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That’s a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into…if he can just get Lissianna to bite.
A Quick Bite is the first book in an extremely long and ongoing vampire romance series. So, as I will be attempting to review each of them, and romance books tend to follow a similar outline for the direction of the story, I will be keeping these reviews on the shorter side so I’m not repeating myself in each one.
I read parts of this series when I was in high school and adored it. I love the twist on the vampire origin story. It’s one that I’ve never heard before. Vampire are a creation of science instead of magic or myth. I thought it was a nice twist on the traditional vampire.
I loved Greg. He had me cracking up with his inner dialogue. Trying to explain his actions when he’d been mind-controlled and didn’t know it was hilarious. He was in the dark about essentially everything while in Margurite’s house and it was beyond funny seeing him trying to put the pieces together.
Lissianna was sweet. I liked her and her phobia was interesting. It certainly made for a complicated story. I would have liked to see her actually working on her phobia though.
I love the Argeneau family. They’re all so different with interesting dynamics. I love that they all come together for one another. The family aspect of this series is one of my favorite parts.
Overall, I enjoyed this book, but not as much as I remembered. It was an average romance. I liked it but didn’t love it. I’m noticing this is changing as I get into newer books (I’ve already read the first five or so.) There is definitely some sex in these books, so the romance readers that don’t like smut should not try these ones out. I rather enjoy the sex scenes, but some of the words used make me giggle. Give this one a try if you like smutty romance and vampires!
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
