    Eh. Another disappointing read. I seem to be having bad luck lately.The narrator was annoying (why does "funny" paranormal romance/urban 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 did.The 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 more than a few chaste kisses and everything else happened off-screen. If it's an adult romance, I expect some sex, dammit! :O)

    I saw several aspects which I thought could use improvement (understatement) , or were a severe detraction to any self-respecting vampire romance novel.First, 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 more 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. Um...duh? Isn't that common sense? C'mon, where's the real climax? The surprise? The shock factor? That glorious moment when the reader thinks..."AHA!"?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 master/romantic 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 club/bar right across the tanning salon/vampire 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 make.Quatro! (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 more can I say?And now, for the most memorable part of this series (what I've read of it anyway). I give you,SARAH"S EPIC SPEECH AT THE NIGHTCLUN/TANNING 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—doctors,lawyers, 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 clear.Question 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 beginning.It was so funny, I actually laughed out loud many times.Sarah Dearly was going on a blind date that her friend Amy set up for her.The guy is clearly a lunatic, because he bites her on the first date, literally.He also gets killed by vampire hunters.Yeah, the guy’s a desperate vampire.Sarah 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 suicide.He’s helping her, though, and not just with the hunters.Sarah would be dead if it wasn’t for him, because she needed his blood to survive as a vampire.But a life as a vampire wasn’t what Sarah wanted; she’d do anything to be a normal human again.After a while she meets a guy named Quinn 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 hunter.So now she’s running from a vampire hunter who knows her name and what she looks like, and she can never rest.At least not until he becomes a vampire too…Sarah can be a little bitchy sometimes, but her heart is pure.She saves her reality with lots of denial at first, then with lots of sarcasm.I don’t really buy her so-called love to Thierry, just that she thinks that he’s very hot, mysterious and hard to get.Thierry is a private man, with not so much of a personality.He’s kind of boring; I guess his personality disappeared with his age.Though, he has his moments when he doesn’t understand what Sarah’s talking about.I 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 more.But seriously, Sarah’s an outgoing woman who knows what she wants, and Thierry?Well he just wants to die.I don’t say that he should die; it would be nice to have him around, just not as Sarah’s boyfriend.Quinn on the other hand is great for Sarah in my opinion.Sure he was going to kill her at first sight, but he didn’t know that vampires are like humans in some ways.There are good vampires and bad vampires, just like there are good humans and bad humans.He was raised to think that all vampires were bad, so it’s not really his fault.Honest now, wouldn’t Sarah and Quinn make a cute couple?Even Amy thinks that.Amy is a very unique character, she believes in true love and that it will last forever.She might have made a mistake with Sarah’s blind date, but it really wasn’t her fault.Her reaction when Sarah says that she’s a vampire is priceless.First she’s about to scream and then she’s super-jealous.Bitten & smitten really is well written, and very funny.The characters came alive with their personality, well… most of them.I assume that Thierry has his personality in his own way… the private way, but I still don’t like him.

    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 familiar.The 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 luck.Another lucky thing was finding these books in the first place. I ordered #2 and #3 via Borders.com 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 Quinn and Thierry was amusing.It 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.

    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 more for the laughs than to actually move the plot along, but they are hilarious!I found all the characters to be likeable. Sarah's sassy personality is definitely a stand-out and so is Quinn, 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 emotion.The 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 more in the next books in the series.Overall, 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 1/2 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.:]

    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 blood.Will she manage to adapt to her new life? Will she escape the crazy vampire killers? And more 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 quite a unique way of seeing things and the hero constantly want to kill himself which seems to destroy any hope of a stable relationship.A book to have absolutely.

    As a completely irrelevant side note, my screwed-up brain kept reading Thierry's last name as "Biencoeur" (which means GoodHeart) instead of "Bennicoeur" (which means... nothing really).My reading words that weren't actually in the book might be a side effect of all the times I started ramming my head on the desk, though. I would say the heroine was dumber than a post, but that would be insulting to posts everywhere, and I'm not so eager to be getting angry e-mails claiming slander against posts. Within the first hundred pages, I had three major headdesk moments. The book starts just after Sarah has been bitten, when her date is trying to bury her in the graveyard. Sarah pulls out a can of pepperspray and tries to run away, but he keeps coming after her, insisting he's a vampire. When she runs into a group of men, she's relieved and asks them for help, which they're only too happy to give her, since they get their jollies from killing vampires like her date. Before the staking begins, she thinks to herself how lucky it is she just happened to run into a group of helpful guys randomly hanging around a graveyard in the middle of the night. No, really, that's her actual thought, and it's not meant ironically. She then stands there and watches the hunters stab her date until he's just a pile of goo, which must take awhile, because they hack at him over and over. Only when they're finished and turn their attention back to Sarah does she think this might be a good time to try to leave.After having watched the hunters in action, you'd think she'd figure out "man, I'm screwed. These people are dangerous, and maybe it's best if I lie low and keep my mouth shut about all this vampire stuff." What she does instead is get mad at Thierry for telling her she'll have to give up her human life (as it's too much of a risk) and runs into a bar, where she gets trashed and tells him all about being a vampire. Keeping a secret by blurting it out to strangers? Strategy fail. And is anyone surprised to hear her new confidante is a hunter, since she's stumbled into a hunter's bar?This was really the fatal flaw in the book for me. The idea is that Sarah is a bit fluffy-headed, a flawed and materialistic woman with room for character growth, which is fabulous in concept but there's something wrong with the execution if I'm mentally placing bets as to how many times she should have earned a Darwin award by now. Being a bit self-absorbed and clueless is one thing, but her total lack of self-preservation made me grit my teeth.Taking Thierry from the typical mysterious, brooding hero into someone who's actually suicidal was a daring choice, and I wish more time had been spent on that and why specifically he wanted so badly to end it. He seems like he could be an interesting, complex character, but we spend so little time with him, it's hard to be certain.I really enjoyed the Quinn subplot, the identity struggle and the way he's forced to re-evaluate everything he's ever known. This part of the story had some real meat to it, and while the emotional payoff at the end was perhaps not as shocking as it was intended to be, and I think seeing the story from his perspective instead of Sarah's would have been a lot of fun. He suffers and struggles more than she does, and there are some really interesting implications for him after his final plot twist.If my description of Sarah's behaviour and decision-making abilities doesn't make you cringe, you might find this a fun, light read. Rowen does a few unconventional things with her vampires the fang fiends may want to check out (although I sort of feel like she's taken away all the disadvantages, leaving Sarah to whine about... well, not much, really).

    Bitten & Smitten has a really cute premise - a girl gets turned into a vampire and is saved by a super old vampire who wants to kill himself. In turn, she ends up saving him by bringing enjoyment back into his life. It's just too bad that's the only positive thing I can really say about this book...Sarah, the female protagonist, seemed to lack any common sense about pretty much anything. She consistently would end up in situations where she was about to be killed because she couldn't fathom *not* running off to do all the normal things she used to do. Who cares that a master vampire warns you about various dangers? Who cares if you get attacked for being a vampire twice in a few days and barely live? The best solution is to keep parading around at night all alone and then lie to all of your friends and family about everything because you're too afraid to do anything else. Of course, Thierry, the lead male character, wasn't any better. He never seemed to really do anything special. It's like he'd appear and Sarah instantly was like oh damn he's so hot and sexy. He'd then be an ass and she'd be like god what a jerk I never want to see him again. Then she'd see him again and be infatuated and so on and so forth. There wasn't even any real dialogue between the two of them to show any type of relationship! URGHI feel like I could rant about how the conflict was confusing and frustrating or about how the side characters made no sense and seemed to change their outlook on life every 5 seconds - but I won't. It's clear to me that this book is targeting a different audience than me. If you're hoping for realistic and interesting characters or a captivating plot or a beautiful romance - I'd recommend you look elsewhere.

    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 quite 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 quickly 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.

    I really liked this start to the series! It's a bit more PG13 rated than what I'm used to, but still a fun, enjoyable read. Sort of reminds me of the Lily Bard series, combined with a PG13 version of Sookie Stackhouse. Though at times I felt as though I was reading about a teenager, and not a grown woman, Sarah's adventures from human to new vampire were entertaining and humorous. I love her wit and sense of humor, especially her demeanor towards Thierry, who everyone else seems too afraid to speak to in that manner. George and Quinn are definitely on my list of favorite people in the book, and I really enjoyed seeing what became of Quinn. Overall, nice light yet captivating read. Not comparable with say Night Huntress, but this is more innocent and "fun". Good read for those who want to read "safe" love scenes :) and a good laugh.

    Sarah Dearly goes on a blind date, and the next thing she knows, she's being buried. She of course freaks out, and the guy said she's been turned into a vampire. She watches vampire hunters kill her date/sire then decides she better run. She ends up running right into Thierry, who just happens to be a master vampire with a death wish. He saves her and sort of takes her under his wing. And he's hot.Sarah is quite determined to take care of herself. At one point, she goes into a bar that is filled with vampire hunters. She was flirting with a guy, and accidentally told him she was a vampire. Quinn (the guy) turned out to be one of the vampire hunters. She makes it out alive, but that definitely not the last she sees of him. And he's hot.So many funny things happen in this book. I laughed out loud quite a few times.

    I randomly picked up this book while browsing for a different book, something about the cover caught my eye and it looked like a quick read so i grabbed it. I read the book in 2 sittings! I loved this book. I was skeptical at first since romance novels aren't really my style but this book packed a punch. It wasn't filled with the gushy, voyeuristic, and sometimes downright weird "romance" scenes but instead filled with snarky, sarcastic, and hilarious banter and situations.. I loved the heroine, Sarah, and her very real and relatable personality...even if her situation isn't terribly real or relatable. This book is also a nice quick read for when you want something entertaining and light. luckily it's also part of a series so there's plenty more to read if you find yourself wanting more of this story after gnashing through this short book.

    This book is a quick read, but it is not light hearted and simple as the title implies. It's about a women made into a vampire against her will, I know we've all read this before...but this book is really good and nothing is cut and dry. Sarah has not one but two love interests making quite the triangle and one has a wife!!! I like reading all the different takes on vampires that one author has compared to another. Like these vamps can go out in the sun, have no reflection and can't eat solid food. Every author takes a little of vamp lore and makes up their own. I really liked the story and Sarah didn't annoy the crap out of me, like Besty now does in Davidson's books. I will definitely read the next one.

    I have to admit, I didn't read the last 50 pages of this book. I just couldn't do it! I tried, I really did, but I simply couldn't drag myself through a mess like that. I mean it was just so contrived, all over the place, badly written and seen before. When I sat down with this book I was most of all looking forward to a funny, comical book. Admitted, Rowen did try to be funny, but failed quite miserably if you ask me. Nothing really seemed original, every intented surprise fell flat and the female main character is one of the most annoying ones I've ever encountered. So, no. I didn't finish this book. Shoot me. I just couldn't do that to myself.

    This is one of the books tat I've had on my shelves for years and never got around to reading. I decided to give it a go, it was a bit slow to start off with but the action picked up. I enjoyed the plot, even though it was quite predictable and characters grew on me, it will be interesting to see if the Quinn and Sarah issues are explored further. It was a lighthearted, easy read and I liked Sarah's sense of humour.

    When i got this book i just put it on my shelf and forgot about it. While playing a game the name of this book was brought up and I started reading it. I read it in bout 6-8 hours straight. It was soo good and hilarious. it has a lil bit of a love story but its comical enough that it's definitely worth the read!

    This book rocked! Its about time there were some older vamps around. I am very tired of the whole "teen" scene. Anyhow, this story isnt unlike any ive read lately. This is a funny and thrilling story of a girl who ends up having the week from heck. Everything that can go wrong does of course. Very entertaining and totally worth a read. I hope the rest of the series is just as good.

    *yawn* I made it to page 84 of this then was too bored to march on. I thought this was gonna be a funny book but the reality was the hero was cold and not appealing, the heroine is juvenile and acts tstl, and the plot wasn't bad but the endless narration of unimportant things made it almost painful to read.

Ahora sigo con el 2do :D

    Typical vampire romance - not very memorable. I'm always looking for something as cute as Maryjanice Davidson's Undead books, and I rarely find it. The vampire romances by Katie MacAlister and Lynsay Sands are better.

    Sarah Dearly comes to the realization that she has just had the worst blind date ever when she comes to in an open grave as her date is shoveling dirt on her head. Her dud of a date has turned her into a vampire but things take a turn for the worse when they encounter a group of vampire hunters and her new sire is killed. This leaves Sarah completely alone to fend for herself until she luckily runs into a 600 year old vampire who helps her escape and becomes a major part of her new life. This is a fun supernatural romp with adventure, action and a little romance. Great laughs and fun characters make this a perfect summer read. I've already downloaded all 5 books in the series and look forward to the next one on the list.

    Un libro que es entrenido y absurdo en ciertos momentos, pero al fin y al cabo pasable. La trama pudo haber sido más interesante si en la "pelea" hubiese un poco de sangre, golpes, digo se supone que son vampiros luchando por sus preciosas vidas en contra de los cazadores.Los personajes: bastante normalitos, sin nada que aportar más que unos cuantos diálogos chistosos. Aún así, creo que leere el segundo libro.

    Cute, fun, and entertaining. I read this going in knowing it was a lighthearted humorous novel and I wants disappointed. The characters were likable, and while it wasn't the most developed plot, it kept me reading (and chuckling).

    This book was so cute and well written. I was hooked from the first page. I went into this book thinking it would be another dull take on vampires. But I was wrong! Michelle Rowan is an amazing wordsmith.Definitely recommend.
