Erika Todd moved to New Orleans because she needed a change - and, well, yes, because that's what her fortune teller said she would do. Not that she'd admit that to many people. But so many of the psychic's predictions - about her work, even finding that stray black cat - have already come true. Now all the lonely sculptor needs is to meet and fall in love with the prophes...more

"I Want You To Want Me" is book two in Kathy Love's vampire series following her earlier 'Fangs' series. Love's books have a healthy dose of humor combined with a bit of mystery and action to make for a very enjoyable read.

Erika is an artist who recently moved to New Orleans...because her fortune teller told her to. Yes, she fully believes in all that 'psychic mumbo jumbo' and she can't wait to meet the Prince her psychic has predicted for her.

Vittorio is trying to avoid his new neighbor. Not b...more

The backstory for the main characters comes out slowly in this book. I have to say that I was appalled and just generally grossed out by some of what is revealed!

It definitely makes it easier to understand Vittorio and why he is the way he is. I'm trying to do this without any spoilers lol...so not easy!

Let's just say that this book rocks! The sex scenes are awesome and plentiful and the storyline had me hooked from the start!

I love trying to figure out who will be in the next book as I'm readin...more

this book has some really funny moments. I love how miss love writes and how the book is easy to understand. I still think Ren is super funny. love it when he walks in on them and doesn't leave
This story continues as Maggie's friend Erika moves to New Orleans as her fortune teller predicted. She is staying at Ren & Maggie's carriage house in one of the apartments as she tries to get her art career started. That instant chemistry between her and Ren's brother Vittorio from the last book heats up when he comes to stay in the apartment above her.

I have to give it to Erika for her determination, I don't think I would have put up with Vittorio's attitude in the beginning of the book. I...more
Second book in the series and this one follows on slightly after the other one ended.

Erica Todd moves into the apartment complex owned by her best friend's new husband and finds herself in a bit of a sticky situation. The man living in the room upstairs is gorgeous but rude and Erica can't help but think that he may be the "Dark Prince" her psychic warned her was coming into her life.

I liked this story. It was entertaining and cute. Very simple storyline to follow.

Good read. Paranormal set in New Orleans with an action oriented plot. This is a direct sequel to Any Way You Want It; the hero is the brother of Ren from Any Way and the heroine is the best friend of Maggie, the heroine of that book. Great villain - in the climactic confrontation heroine is thinking "It was like a nightmare, every horror movie, every V. C. Andrews novel rolled into one." A fairly accurate summation... I'm looking forward to the next one [whose hero is introduced in this book:]....more
I Want You to Want Me is the second book from Love's 'Fangs' series. A humorous, sexy and romantic read that I enjoyed. I didn't read the first one, but I was able to read this one without any confusion, as it stands alone very well. The characters are developed rather quickly and the story is fast paced, with some mystery and a little suspense. Although it is a "vampire" book, Vittorio and his brother Ren are lampirs, and thus they only take humans energy and not their blood, so there is in fac...more

I Want You To Want Me can be view as a sequel after Any Way You Want It still it doesn't have any major strings attached to the previous book, so you can just skip the first one is you want to.
Though I really did love Erika and Vittorio both like a characters and like a couple, still I have to admit that for me the first book was a lot better.
A fun, humoristic book from the start till the end, with some emotional moments in it of course and not to mention the smoking hot scenes.
A mother's obsessive deluded romantic love for her son. Well, ewwww. Talk about eh "mother-in-law from hell".... An OK read. A little too much narrative with 3-4 pages dedicated to a single thought, but nothing a little page flipping won't resolve. I'll continue the series.
An interesting book - I read it before the first one in the series and followed it fine, though there are references that you pick up if you have read the first one. A good read for a brain candy book - you certainly have to suspend belief quite often.

This is the story of Vittorio (brother to Ren from this author's previous book). He falls in love with Erika who does not know that he is a vampire. However, her fortune teller has told her that he is her "prince".
This was the book that wouldn't end. I was actually looking forward to reading Vittorio's story but this was just awful. It dragged on and on and was repetitive...ugh...not good.
Loved good read. These books are not listed as a series, but really they are. You should read them in order.
The books just seemed pointless and boring.
Vampires in New Orleans -- an okay read.
