It’s Bridget Jones with vampires in this fresh and funny paranormal romance from debut author Juliet Lyons
When Silver Harris kisses sexy Irish vampire Logan Byrne on New Year's Eve, she knows other humans just won't suffice. Convinced she'll never see him again, she joins the uber-popular vampire dating site, V-Date.com.
What Silver doesn't know is that the site is more dangerous than she could ever imagined, and soon she's in over her head. When Logan returns, sparks fly and attraction sizzles, but they'll have to escape some very real demons if they have any chance of lasting forever
DATING THE UNDEAD introduces a world where vampires are “out” and don’t need blood to survive. It’s also a world where vampires need a website to find dates though, which is a bit strange.
The vampire mythology was interesting: the elder vampires cannot be killed - even decapitation is only temporary! - but the vampires are much more like traditional vamps with weaknesses. Learning about these weaknesses is why Silver, and the London Police Department start spying on vampires using the V-Dates.com website. Silver
Silver and Logan are hot together, and their romance goes through many typical PNR tropes: keeping secrets, trying to stay apart to protect each other, scorching hot sex. But I was also super confused as to why they like each other. Their meeting was pretty random, and apart from the fact that they “can’t stop thinking about each other”, I never felt like they had that much in common.
DATING THE UNDEAD is a book with really sexy love scenes and a few surprises that kept things interesting, but it failed to be either super corny or super dark. It was constantly toeing the line which left it a bit bland. Not bad, but bland.Series Titles:
- Dating The Undead
- Romancing the Undead
- This title reminded me a lot of the first Love at Stake novel, How To Marry A Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks.
- For books about the people behind a supernatural dating agency, try the Midnight Liaisons series by Jessica Sims.
