    So much potential funnyI mean the girl is snarky enough But she was also just too stupidShe gets turned into a vampire and immediately has vampire hunters all over her So what does she do? She keeps walking into the bar that she KNOWS has vampire hunters She keeps running around late at night when she KNOWS the vampire hunters are everywhere She keeps giving them her first and last name and then wonders how they keep finding her Seriously it was like she kept making herself a walking targetJust stop Or at least don't complain to me when you get bitch slapped AgainNot only all of this but she even kisses an ex vampire hunter who kept trying to kill her sighI don't know about you guys but I have a strict policy of staying away from everything that wants me dead Yes that list is probably a little long considering I'm a middle aged housewife in the suburbs but hey how was I supposed to know that you shouldn't open the windows on an airplane? Why do they even have windows if you can't open them? Isn't that the whole point of windows? Fresh air?Okay maybe taking that selfie while it was happening was a little too much but in my defense my Instagram really needed a boost Plus I just know some people weren't going to believe me It was documentation Okay so maybe I shouldn't have been smiling I admit it I said I was sorry Okay I said my bad? but everyone knows that means sorry right? No need to get all mad and killy on meHarshSheesh surviving family members are sooo sensitiveAnywho my angry mob problems aside this book was okay It wasn't as funny as I like my vampire romance books to be but it was amusing I have of this series so I will keep reading to see if it hits the Jilly laugh o meter If not I'll just send the angry mob over to the author They can use a little cardio Some of them are getting chubby sitting out there waiting for me to leave the house What? Shit they heard me call them chubby? sigh So freaking sensitive

    Eh Another disappointing read I seem to be having bad luck latelyThe narrator was annoying why does funny paranormal romanceurban fantasy always mean the main character is a complete idiot? and the plot was dull I figured most of the plot out way before Sarah didThe love interest Thierry didn't do it for me They fell for each other much too fast pet peeve and didn't even spend enough time together to know if they actually liked one another Chemistry was lacking but that might be because there was no than a few chaste kisses and everything else happened off screen If it's an adult romance I expect some sex dammit O

    I have a particular weakness for paranormal romance books constantly finding myself drawn towards new series or at least new to me I regularly say I will not start a new series until I am up to date with all the other series I am reading and yet something always calls out to me Bitten Smitten is a prime example of thisBitten Smitten is the first book in Michelle Rowen’s Immortality Bites series and I seem to have found myself another paranormal romance series that I will need to follow Fortunately there are a few books out already for me to sink my teeth into so this series should keep me busy for a while once I get hold of the next few books – starting with Fanged FabulousAs the titles will have you guessing this is not a series to be taken seriously It’s a light hearted series filled with plenty of amusement to leave you chuckling out loud Sure there are plenty of heavier moments – deeper moments for the storyline moments where things become serious to progress the story forward – yet on the whole this is an entertaining read that will leave you with a bounce in your stepIn all honesty this was exactly what I needed from the book Sometimes I just want a book with plenty of laughter one I will be sucked into and will complete in no time at all one I will have a lot of fun with and one I will be than willing to say ‘it wasn’t perfect but it was perfect for what I needed’ – and such is exactly what Bitten Smitten providedIt was light hearted and fun leaving me than willing to dive into the next book I may not be overjoyed with the romance in this one I’m not feeling the couples at all but I’m hoping that will come in time Everything else I wanted from this book I got – and that is all I can ask forWithout a doubt this is a series I want of

    I saw several aspects which I thought could use improvement understatement or were a severe detraction to any self respecting vampire romance novelFirst were the many idiosyncrasies in the series Where in any vampire novel would one find a centuries old vampire who meekly let's himself get killed? In tons of books of course But these books normally make use of only one or two to make the story interesting You don't get whole towns of such vampires volunteering to die They are the exception not the norm What is the norm are manipulative cunning century old vampires who have lived that long because They Are Not Stupid But in this book almost every vampire almost means characters who are granted the great honor of having names and speaking parts aren't as stupid is so afraid of vampire hunters that they'll plead moan and likely run if they get the chance but they won't fight I understand that fear is a crippling factor However the climactic event in Bitten and Smitten is the club scene where the heroine climbs on a platform and talks to a club filled to the rafters with vampires that they don't need to be afraid of FIVE VAMPIRE HUNTERS Umduh? Isn't that common sense? C'mon where's the real climax? The surprise? The shock factor? That glorious moment when the reader thinksAHA?After shaking my head a few times and sighing I come to my second point the world building I think a lot of things got lost amid all the running around stabbing poofing into goo and fluff My example a world of meek vampires? Why when and how the hell did it happen? Was it because of religion technology the guilt factor? I may have read something to a certain extent of some vampires wanting to blend in that they're actually human yada yada so they don't want any trouble but this doesn't automatically translate to kill me now I will not resist In short where's the base? The metaphysical four elephants which stand on a turtle and hold up the Earth?Moving on to my third point I feel like I'm watching a cartoon Vampire hunters jump out of nowhere Stakes come out of nowhere A whole lot of things come OUT OF NOWHERE There are so many vampires and hunters you'd think the place was infested with them There was some mention of a hunter gathering but must every hotdog stand customer and bestfriend's boyfriend be a vampire hunter? What's next the dogwalker? The pregnant lady sitting on a bench? Mrs Wilkins from 4th Grade History? Coincidences can happen once or twice They're a staple of any fiction novel after all But fiction novels even those about vampires are bound by the common rules of reality These rules state that you can meet someone once it's coincidence twice acceptable three times and Fate is your crazy gay uncle For example you meet vampire hunters in a cemetery right after getting bitten and waking up in a grave? That's coincidence Meeting your future vampire masterromantic interest standing on a bridge and debating the merits of suicide while you are running away from said vampire hunters? Acceptable Meeting one of the vampire hunters again because he's dating your best friend and you planned a double date? resulting in a restaurant scene fight? Your crazy gay uncle appears Having the vampire hunter meeting clubbar right across the tanning salonvampire night club so you can run over your enemies again and again just by crossing the street? Your crazy gay uncle is whipping your ass In short simple and convenient do not an interesting novel makeuatro 4th point Characters are trite one dimensional three being the ideal unamusing trying to be witty but failing and conventional And don't even let me start on the romance angle It's a shallow version of loud mouthed chick falls in love with brooding sensitive vampire with issues What can I say?And now for the most memorable part of this series what I've read of it anyway I give youSARAHS EPIC SPEECH AT THE NIGHTCLUNTANNING SALON The part where the vampires have been hostaged by a couple of hunters with crappy weapons“Hi everyone” I said into the microphone “I don’t have much to say I know Peter here’sin a big hurry Men you know The thing is he’s just doing what he thinks is right by killing me and maybe killing the rest of you before the night is through That’s what the hunters do They kill vampires I mean look at what Hollywood has done to us Made us into bloodsucking murderous monsters Ugly white faced bat creatures Scary icky night stalkers Or on the other hand you have the hot steamy vampire lovers Those are my favorites of course but they’re still mostly evil”I pulled the microphone off the stand so I could hold it closer to my mouth“And evil things should be killed right? If we were all just regular folks—doctorslawyers and schoolteachers—going about our daily business well that would be another thing We wouldn’t deserve to die because of that These hunters would be the murderers then wouldn’t they? But we’re not those normal everyday boring things”I took a deep breath “We’re monsters Evil scary fanged monsters Strong and dangerous able to look after ourselves and our nasty friends and families We give the hunters a run for their money don’t we? We’d never make it easy on them or they might enjoy it too much Might look at killing us as a game a hobby—big fun Something they can do to feel powerful and important“They have the weapons sure They have the teamwork okay But at the end of the day—in the wee hours of the night—take a look around my monstrous friends we have the goddamned numbers”I heard a rustle through the crowd as they looked around at one another whispering about what I was saying and the point I was trying to get across I hoped to God I was making that point loud and clearuestion of the Hour Would an average reasonable person trying to change vampire minds use scary icky night stalkers in a sentence? Would you?

    Bitten Smitten captured me from the very beginningIt was so funny I actually laughed out loud many timesSarah Dearly was going on a blind date that her friend Amy set up for herThe guy is clearly a lunatic because he bites her on the first date literallyHe also gets killed by vampire huntersYeah the guy’s a desperate vampireSarah has to run for her life when the hunters discover the bite marks and she runs into a 600 year old vampire who wants to commit suicideHe’s helping her though and not just with the huntersSarah would be dead if it wasn’t for him because she needed his blood to survive as a vampireBut a life as a vampire wasn’t what Sarah wanted; she’d do anything to be a normal human againAfter a while she meets a guy named uinn at a bar and she tells him that she’s a vampire good move Sarah and he tells her his little secret too; he’s a vampire hunterSo now she’s running from a vampire hunter who knows her name and what she looks like and she can never restAt least not until he becomes a vampire tooSarah can be a little bitchy sometimes but her heart is pureShe saves her reality with lots of denial at first then with lots of sarcasmI don’t really buy her so called love to Thierry just that she thinks that he’s very hot mysterious and hard to getThierry is a private man with not so much of a personalityHe’s kind of boring; I guess his personality disappeared with his ageThough he has his moments when he doesn’t understand what Sarah’s talking aboutI would say that he really doesn’t belong in a relationship with Sarah; sure it can be a great fling with both of them but nothing But seriously Sarah’s an outgoing woman who knows what she wants and Thierry?Well he just wants to dieI don’t say that he should die; it would be nice to have him around just not as Sarah’s boyfrienduinn on the other hand is great for Sarah in my opinionSure he was going to kill her at first sight but he didn’t know that vampires are like humans in some waysThere are good vampires and bad vampires just like there are good humans and bad humansHe was raised to think that all vampires were bad so it’s not really his faultHonest now wouldn’t Sarah and uinn make a cute couple?Even Amy thinks thatAmy is a very uniue character she believes in true love and that it will last foreverShe might have made a mistake with Sarah’s blind date but it really wasn’t her faultHer reaction when Sarah says that she’s a vampire is pricelessFirst she’s about to scream and then she’s super jealous Bitten smitten really is well written and very funnyThe characters came alive with their personality well most of themI assume that Thierry has his personality in his own way the private way but I still don’t like him

    I seem to be addicted to vampire stories lately This one is another light funny read Sarah Dearly has absolutely no good luck After a blind date she wakes up to find her date burying her in a cemetery having just changed her into a vampire The next day she goes into work and has a meeting with her boss who unfortunately gives herself a papercut Of course Sarah just can't resist having a suck on her employer's finger leading to her being sacked for sexual harassment Some of the scenes in this book seem to have been written for the laughs than to actually move the plot along but they are hilariousI found all the characters to be likeable Sarah's sassy personality is definitely a stand out and so is uinn the vampire hunter's Thierry though How on earth do you pronounce that name?? No offense intended to all the Thierry's out there wasn't all that interesting to be honest Maybe it was Rowen's way of displaying his depression but he showed no real emotionThe romance between Sarah and Thierry was underdeveloped This book is classified as a paranormal romance novel but the romance was definitely lacking Maybe it develops in the next books in the seriesOverall this book is definitely an enjoyable read but nothing special I'm still definitely planning on reading the rest of the books in the series I rate Bitten Smitten at 3 and a 12 stars out of 5 I recommend it to lovers of fantasy vampire stories and just generally funny books While this book contained no unsuitable content this is an adult series so later books in the series may just warning you

    I purchased this book from a library book sale with several other random things I had no idea this was part of a series but thought the author sounded weirdly familiarThe reason was that a month before while at a used bookstore I had picked up #4 in this series just thinking it looked interesting This book is #1 When it came time to read them it still hadn't occurred to me that I might have another book by this author in the ginormous piles that sit behind my chair I just happened to pick #1 first Talk about luckAnother lucky thing was finding these books in the first place I ordered #2 and #3 via Borderscom today while redeeming my Borders bucks for the month and I'm excited for them to arrive At first I was rolling my eyes at her name Sarah Dearly but then it just became something else that endeared me to the character Unfortunate name The ability to wear a pj shirt with sparkly 'DIVA' on it out and about Not to mention the Tweety Bird sweater At the same time liking fancy designer shoes Also the whole thing with uinn and Thierry was amusingIt worked as a stand alone while still making you miss the characters at the end and I was very pleasantly surprised when I discovered a whole series If they continue in the same spirit I will be a very happy camper indeed

    After going to a rendezvous arranged by her best friend a young woman woke up in a cemetery the man trying to burying her He pretends to be a vampire and that she now belongs to him She of course hit this obviously crazy man with the pepper spray that every woman must permanently have with her and she run away only to fail into the hands of other madmen pretending to be vampire killers They stick a stake into her aggressor’s heart and she only survives thanks to the intervention of a suicidal man passing by after insisting that he could also kill himself after saving her Her savior turns out to be a seductive man aged of some centuries Which of course she does not believe She is finally forced to bow before the evidence when she unwillingly licks her boss’ cut finger alluring for her bloodWill she manage to adapt to her new life? Will she escape the crazy vampire killers? And important will she convince her savior that life is worth living if only to go out with her?You will have understood it this book uses some deadly humor with an original approach of the vampires’ stories The characters themselves are rather interesting the heroine has uite a uniue way of seeing things and the hero constantly want to kill himself which seems to destroy any hope of a stable relationshipA book to have absolutely

    As soon as I started reading this book I was instantly hooked by the main character Sarah Dearly Sarah is on a blind date with a guy who bites her but then gets killed by vampire hunters right before her eyes Sarah has no idea vampires exist and gets thrown for uite a loop learning that she's now a vampire too Trying to get away from the vampire hunters who just killed her date she crosses paths with a man who is on the verge of killing himself who turns out to be a 600 year old vampire He helps Sarah out and agrees to be her adoptive sire and teach her the ways of vampirism Things uickly get complicated but it's always entertaining with Sarah around The story is told from the first person point of view and it is so much fun hearing this story from inside Sarah's head She's got this sarcastic sense of humor but it's funny and light hearted At the same time she goes through some serious and frustrating times in the course of one week and I often felt sorry for her But then she'd do something amazing that made me think she's gonna pull through this vampire thing she's got what it takes to be a survivor And she does survive Obviously since there are a few books after this one A fun light hearted and entertaining story that has me wanting to find out what happens next to Sarah Dearling fledgling vampire living in Tornoto Canada
