I never know what to expect when I start reading a vampire novel. I've always loved vampire stories, especially after watching all the Hammer Dracula movies when I was younger. I like vampires to be creepy and dark. Not angst ridden and DEFINITELY NOT sparkly!

This book isn't creepy. But nor is it angst ridden. Dead Awake is a fast read. It's sexy. It's snarky. To be honest if a vampire story isn't scary then I'd prefer it to read like this.

Deb Stein is a socialite. She likes to think she'd put P...more

Lizzie T. Leaf is a fab author who knows how to make her reader laugh so hard that they almost end up peeing! (Not me, of course, *cough-cough* ;) This amazing series kicks off with the story of the beautiful Deb Stein & her "very frustrating & completely unexpected" death & re-birth from a spoiled over-sexed, loaded socialite into a dirt poor vampire, thanks to the mesmerizing, sexy vampire, Aaron Lowell. Now, some of us wouldn't cope well well with suddenly finding ourselves withou...more

I loved this book. It's full of drama, sarcasm, and laugh out loud comedy. It's a fast, fun read that will leave you wanting more! If you love paranormal, but want a change of pace this is the perfect series for you!

Aaron Lowell, a year old Vampire, has found himself at a party on Halloween night looking for his next easy meal ticket.
While scanning the party goers his eyes fall upon a beautiful blonde bombshell. He observed the the heated argument she was in with what appeared to be an ex and...more

Warning : This book does contain adult language and situations.

If you like a little naughty vampire fun then this is the book series for you. This book is short enough that it doesn't take forever to read but that doesn't mean that it isn't full of fun vampire awesomeness.

Deb is a woman who loves to party and loves being in the spot light. However, after her boyfriend dumps her for her best friend and then parades around like it doesn't matter at Debs Halloween party the last thing Deb wants is...more

Thoroughly enjoyed this book, ya gotta love a book that gives you a good giggle as you read, this was a refreshing change to the normal vampire/shifter etc type books.

I loved the snarkiness of Deb/Dovey. The supporting characters were great as well. I want to know more about them, so hopefully as this is the 1st in a series they will have their own books.

This was a quick read, so there were bits that you wanted to read a bit more about, so I do wish it was a lot longer. But hey, it's a short, fu...more

I found myself really liking the main character in this story. Not at first; at first she is more of an unlikable type but this is essential to the story. As a vampire she had to die before she found out how to live. I love that theme too
there is a gentle humor all throughout the tale and a really warm and fuzzy kind of message within the tale. yes it is a vampire story and there are some sexy moments but I thought it was more of a heartwarming feel good kind of story.

Wasn't a fan of this at all, it was like it was trying to hard to be something like a Mary Janice Davidson book.
Vichy
A humorous approach of the undead world. After reading the book you begin to flirt with the idea..”hey, it's not so bad being a living dead”! In fact, given that Deb was an obnoxious, ill mannered, bad mouthed, rich girl, the accident that turned her to a vampire, also transformed her to kind and caring sentimental person.

Another fun paranormal by Lizzie T. Leaf. Great stuff!
