I downloaded this book during an ebook sale quite a while ago and just now got around to reading it. I was not compensated for this review in any way.
Some of these books I’ve had for so long that by the time I read them, I don’t remember why I downloaded them in the first place, so I’m completely fresh going into it.
Rose, or Roseline, is starting school at her new high school in Chicago. All she wants is the normal teenage experience. That’s a bit difficult when you’re over 300 years old and the wife of the one known as Dracula.
She’s endured her husband Vladimir’s abuse for too long, so she takes off in the middle of the night and starts a new life in America. There, she meets Sadie and her brother William, and makes fast friends, her first normal friends in her life. She also meets Gabriel, who is inexplicably drawn to her, and she him. He’s the football quarterback and generally bad news for girls, but you can’t deny love.
As Rose gets closer to her new friends, she finds out that her husband will come looking for her, and her friends might be collateral damage. Plus there’s something strange going on with Gabriel, so she takes off back to Romania so Vladimir won’t come looking. What she didn’t count on was her friends coming after her with help from someone they didn’t expect.
It wasn’t a bad book. I’m not a big fan of supernatural romance but I liked the unique plot. It reminded me a lot of the book Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side that I read a few years back. I’ll put a link to that one below as well. Like most ebooks, there are a few sequels, and I’m really not all that interested in continuing the story. But it’s a relatively short book, and if you like vampire romance, it provides a unique take on it.
