So after loving Something Secret This Way Comes to pieces I have to say it wasn’t easy for Sierra Dean to floor me as my expectations were skyscraper high, but she not only met but even surpassed them!

The prequel to Something Scecret This Way Comes, The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters follows Secret McQueen on one of her job for the council of Vampire council during a date.
I loved this novella because it helped me better understand what Secret has do go through on a daily bases when she’s working. While trying to go on a date with a guy her friend set her up with Se...more
So technically speaking this novella is number two in the Secret McQueen series when searching by publication date. However, I have dubbed this novella 0.5. *loud applause and cheers* I know, I know. The brilliance is awesomesauce! *takes a bow* The reason for such brilliance is that The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters is more of a prequel to book 1, Something Secret This Way Comes.

I like that it's not just a novella that you can ignore. A short story with a start and end. :p
Secret (that's her name) goes out on a date. :) sounds silly but hut read it ok.
Usually there is no reason why I would mention spoilers in novellas. But there is something that I wish to mention (view spoiler)[ Oh man!!! The cop sounded hot... I wonder if he is forever out of the picture. He isn't mentioned at all in book 1. At some pointy in Book 1, I thought he is...more
Favorite Quote: “Girls who think boobs are their most distracting assets haven’t been watched by a vampire.”
Secret’s best friend, Mercedes, has the perfect man for her. Secret’s life doesn’t lend itself to many possible romantic interests so she decides to accept the latest blind date offering. When Secret meets her blind date, the luscious Detective Tyler Nowakowski, she decides that perhaps the Gods are finally smiling down on her....more
The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters didn't have a whole lot in the way of exposition and world building, but I think that's the whole point. I hear that it was written (and certainly published) after the first full-length book in the series was...more
Secret's friend has set her up on a blind date, and she's quite surprised when she finds herself really warming towards the detective, Tyler. However, because her life is never easy, her vampire liaison, Holden, has also handed her a new job. So, she soon finds herself juggling her date with trying to kill a rogue vampire--who also happens to be a Hol...more
I was really excited when I received this one for review. I haven't come across a werewolf-vampire hybrid heroine since Keri Arthur's Riley Jenson Guardian series. The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters is a short prequel to Something Secret This Way Comes. I haven't read the full length novel yet but after reading this one I have every intention on getting to it sooner rather than later. I really enjoyed this novella. It's action-packed, with great characters and Sierra Dea...more
Publish Date: July 19th
How I got this book: eARC from author
This is a short but very action packed novella featuring Secret kicking ass and taking names. Secret’s best friend has set her up on a blind date, and the last thing she wants to do is suffer through it. When Holden shows up with an assignment, it might provide Secret with the perfect change to ditch her date and go out doing what she loves.
Let's hope it holds throughout the series.
The good news is that the kiss isn't the be all and end all of this story. It was just the cherry on top. So to speak. I mean, Secret gets to kick some ass. And kiss a guy. And kick some more ass. And go on a...more
I enjoyed this book; during a terribly long wait at the Doctor's yesterday I read this whole novella and was surprised to find an hour had zipped by - that's always the sign of a good story!
I'll be buying the next Secret McQueen book to see where she and her dating go from here.
Anyway, blind date, off to kill a Hollywood star, Holden being Holden and some ass kicking :)
I am glad though that I read this one now first, cos prequel are almost never as good as the real thing
Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of...more
