Imogene helped her newbie vampire friend Celia hook up with an adorable human, but now Celia has dropped an atomic bomb of surprise: she has a possibly blood-sucking baby on the way. Imogene is not pleased, especially when a mysterious, ancient, and annoyingly gorgeous vampire historian shows up to monitor Celia's unprecedented pregnancy.
Lord Nicholas Christopher Cuthbert III is everything Imogene hates: posh, mannerly, and totally uninterested in her. Plus, she thinks he's hiding something. So what if he smells like a fresh garden and looks like a rich boarding school kid just begging to be debauched? Imogene has self-control. Or something.
As Celia's pregnancy progresses at a freakishly fast pace, Imogene and Nicholas play an ever-escalating game of will they or won't they, until his sexy maker shows up on Admiral Key, forcing Nicholas to reveal his true intentions toward Celia's soon-to-arrive infant.
BITE SOMEBODY ELSE is a hilarious and irreverent romp of a vampire romance story. The plot was pretty interesting, dealing with a Celia's unique vampire pregnancy and some twists in whose side everyone is really on. While there were some funny bits and quirky characters (my favorite kind of character) I found its main character to come off as a bit too juvenile at times. The plot, while fun at times seemed to meander and drag at certain points.
I enjoy off kilter and silly stories with characters who are a bit too rude and sassy for their own good. But sometimes there is a limit. I think I found mine with BITE SOMEBODY ELSE. While I was entertained by the silly plot and weirdness of the characters involved, I was put off a lot by Imogene's attitude. She's tough and loyal sure, but she comes off as obnoxious, childish, and pretty rude. I questioned so many times why her friends put up with her basically acting like a spoiled child especially since they are all dealing with a bizarre pregnancy. On the romance front, I got the whole opposites attract thing with the brassy, rude Imogene and the posh and proper Nicholas. Its just that I kept going back to the question of why are adults putting up with this mean and childish person.
BITE SOMEBODY ELSE has its charm in its wacky plot, wit, and quirky characters. Unfortunately, I felt myself having to push through the plot at times and grit my teeth dealing with an incredibly immature main character.Series Titles:
