Book Review: Love Bites
Love Bites (Vampire Kisses, book 7) by Ellen Schreiber.
As a mortal girl dating a vampire, Raven knows that love isn’t always easy. Now that Alexander’s parents have returned to Romania, Raven and her dreamy vampire boyfriend are happy to resume their cryptic romance. But soon another visitor comes knocking: Sebastian, Alexander’s best friend, arrives for a stay at the mansion. At first Raven is wary, and then thrilled – this is the perfect chance to learn more about her darkly handsome boyfriend and his past. Raven has been wondering whether Alexander will ever bite her and make their love immortal, and Sebastian could be her guide to the love habits of Alexander and his kind. But when Sebastian falls for a particular Dullsvillian, will another mortal beat Raven to the bite?
Impulsive Raven may have to be the mediating force when her vampire boyfriend's immortal best friend visits--and falls for her mortal best friend. Can she keep her best friend Becky from being bitten when it is the one thing Raven longs for the most? Love Bites is the seventh book in the Vampire Kisses series but reads easily as a stand alone book though the ending leaves you wanting the next installment. Goth girl Raven and her handsome vampire boyfriend Alexander play to many teen vampire romance cliches and yet this story remains a quick enjoyable read. Love Bites may not be the most original vampire series on the block but if you are looking for a young adult paranormal romance with a simple storyline and easy to identify characters then you'll enjoy Vampire Kisses.
I recommend Love Bites to readers of paranormal romance, young adult, vampire fiction, and especially to fans of the Vampire Kisses series.
