Wow, this is boring. I've been trying to read this since January and I am officially giving up. I like Katie MacAlister. She's a good writer. I liked You Slay Me. But this one just didn't work for me.
Too much sitting around making cutesy jokes about the skinny BFF's fast metabolism and the MC not getting laid. Not enough VAMP action. I mean, come on, I thought I was getting a vampire book. They don't even KNOW if any of the male characters ARE vampires for sure and that was after 146 pages. DNF. ...more
Between the insufferable main character and her b-f-f, their utter stupidity, the unfunny dialog, the lame plot lines, the ridiculous NON-VAMPIRIC sex scenes...I ...more
Blind Date mit einem Vampir
As much as I love Katie MacAlisters "Aisling Grey – Guardian"-Series I cant say the same about this book. I didnt like the heroine Joy and her best friend Roxy very much. I kow this book and the constant bickering between the two friends is supposed to be funny but thats just not my sense of humor. I wished sometimes Joy would just shut up and go on with her investigation because the plot per se wasnt uninteresting.
Okay, there were some funn ...more

Joy & her friend Roxy are both hopeless when it comes to love so they ask for assistance from a wiccan friend to find their true loves. Miranda's prediction for Roxy is quite straightforward - she'll find her true love within a month. However, when it comes to ...more
Later: I'm throwing in the towel at 100 pages. I'm just not finding this funny, the heroine is idiotic and so is her best friend who runs off to East ...more
In this book we have the adventures of Joy and Roxy in the Czech Republic. They are spending two weeks there looking for A Dark One (Vampire) and checking the local sites. They luck out (don't characters in books always ...more
The story follow Joy Randall and her friend Roxy as they take a trip to Czech Republic. After their friend's vision that they will meet and Joy will be a Beloved to a vampire, they begin suspecting multiple men of being a vampire at the local fair.
I didn't care for the introduction of so many characters, but I did come to really like Raphael St. John and Christian J. Dante.

I have read Ms. MacAlister before and frankly I'm not sure whey I didn't pick up this series before now because I've loved her dragon books so much. There's something about the over the top humor and totally unrealistic storylines (yeah, I'm saying unrealistic in a vampire book, don't judge some are believable!!)
A GIRL'S GUIDE TO VAMPIRES introduces us to a world of vampires that is, of course, sort of secret. Except for the fact that one author has written a series of paranormal romances that
Das ist wohl auch einfach nicht mein Genre *seufz*
I didn't buy the vampire story because for me it was loosely explained and seemed utterly absurd. And maybe I lo ...more

Joy Randall's Top 5 Tips for Vampire Hunters: 1. Location, location, location. Remember, if you wouldn't be there, neither would a bloodsucker. 2. Trust your eyes. You know the handsome, annoyingly arrogant, self-assured man in the shadows with long hair and a cleft in his chin? He's your vampire. 3. No matter how tempting it might be, do not "accidentally" acquire a paper cut and suggest YOUR VAMPIRE kiss your finger to make it better. 4. From here on out, play ...more
It's about two friends who love a particular book series about vampires, and travel to the place where the author lives in order to try to find vampires. They then proceed to use the books as an end all and be all of the "Dark Ones" as they call them. I cringed through half of the dialogue in the book, Joy and Roxy kept up with this whole "everyone's a vampire" thing and had no problems talking about it as though it was perfectly reasonable.
If that we ...more
Like most reviewers I found most of the characters in this book extremely annoying. Joy seemed to be trying to be a strong independent woman asserting herself, but she came across whiny, paranoid, nosy and incredibly selfish. But most of all, apart from ...more

I no longer recognize you in the Republic of Joy," I loftily informed him. "Our diplomatic ties are severed."
Unsever them," he growled, "or the Country of Raphael will be forced to declare your republic a protectorate."
Dictator," I muttered.
For life," he agreed.”
