Daisy O'Donnell doesn't get the attraction some women feel for vampires. She likes her men with a heartbeat. And she's just met one who's full of life: Erik Delacourt, the unreasonably sexy man she keeps meeting at a popular L.A. nightclub called the Crypt. She barely knows him, but there's no resisting the connection she feels. . .

There's one important detail Erik hasn't

I can't believe I'm going to say this...but I was honestly offended by this book. haha! I mean, the "heroine" for lack of a better word, is basically a prejudiced idiot who believes its ok to violate another person's home and physically assault them all because their species is too new to be written into the constitution.LOL She then acts suprised when the man she has tried to assault decides that he isnt going to just "let her go" after she breaks into his house. Everything about her conflictin ...more

Wow this was a hard book to get through. I found myself cringing and rolling my eyes every other page. Erik and Daisy rankled me more than any other couple I've ever come across in any other books I've read. It was hard to find redeeming qualities between the two of them amidst all of their deceit, selfishness, hypocrisy, disloyalty, and complete lack of integrity. I wanted to throw my Kindle when Daisy brought her brother to Erik's after just trying to stake Erik's best friend, and again when h ...more

I liked the story, but it seemed a bit tame for me. It may just be tame compared to other stuff I've been reading lately. I will probably read more from this author but I'm not racing out to buy it.

I did admire Daisy for not jumping Erik as soon as she wanted to, but ater 250 pages in a romance novel I've come to expect something. There were a few practicality plot points that just didn't make sense. Such as, Rhys was way to forgiving, last week Alex tried to kill him and then he is willing to

I always loved Amanda Ashley books. They are all mixed with great humor, heartbreaks and happily ever afters and this book was no exception. I loved Daisy, she made such a great heroine. I was glad she put her indifference aside to be with Erik. Rhys made a great secondary character and i can't wait to read his book. I was also hoping Alex would end up being with a vamp girl just to stick it too him. :D This was a great read and would recommend it to anyone.

Daisy is an entrepreneur. Instead of being a vampire hunter like everyone else in her family, she sells vampire blood on the interest. Unfortunately she's stealing it from the vampires and believe it or not, they have a major problem with being violated.

Erik meets Daisy at a vampire bar and is instantly attracted. Too bad he doesn't know that she is the Blood Thief, as it would make his job of finding and executing the Blood Thief a whole lot easier.

The sexual tension between Daisy and Erik is

I gave this book 2.5 stars because there were some really idiotic scenes that made absolutely no sense. Daisy is from a vampire hunting family and she falls in love with a Erik, a vampire. Her brother, Alex comes to town and kills a vampire and a human, and she's okay with this? I am not! Then when Alex almost gets himself killed by a vampire, Daisy takes him to Erik to heal him, which he does because he loves Daisy. Now this vampire, Rhys, who just happens to be Erik's good friend is after both ...more

Everlasting Kiss is the story of Daisy O'Donnell,a blood thief who profits from stealing vampire blood, and a centuries old, incredibly handsome vampire and former British nobleman, Erik Delacourt. Regrettably, I was disappointed in this story; my first Amanda Ashley book. The book dragged in several places and I found that I was forcing myself to continue reading it.

Also, the unbelievable behavior of some of the characters detracted from the plot. For example, Daisy’s younger brother, Brandon,

Daisy finds herself in L.A. away from her family back in Boston. She's a blood thief during the day, she's been trained to taking blood from sleeping vampires. One evening while out at a local club she comes across a steamy hunk of a man that she starts to

This book did a great job of catching my attention early on and keeping me interested and turning the pages to see what would happen next. There's rarely any lull in the action, and the story progresses steadily throughout, with a pacing that seems fairly natural and right for the most part. From the moment Daisy and Erik meet, there is undeniable chemistry between them, chemistry that they both recognize, but they approach it in a very realistic manner I think, for they aren't immediately all o ...more

Rating: 2.5 starts.

I confess, I didn't enjoy this book.
This book wasn't very creative (to me) and I didn't enjoy any of the characters. In fact, Daisy's brother was really annoying, as annoying as Daisy was. The vampire seemed to be powerful, but they weren't or at least not when they came against the heroine who didn't seem to know that much about Vampires. Someone on goodreads said this book was filled with every vampire cliché known to man, and they were dead on. There was nothing creative ab

Amanda Ashley is one of my favorite authors and this book didn’t disappoint.

Daisy O’Donnell is a vampire blood thief. She hunts the undead during the day using a handy compass like device her magical grandmother gave her, takes their blood using a needle and sells it online. She comes from a family of hunters starting with her father, two brothers and herself.

She meets Erik Delacourt at a local club and they instantly spot the other. After a dance, she flees from him and her erratic thoughts bo

sometimes I wonder about the books people like.

If you have read Sookie Stackhouse, no need to read this. This is basically Sookie without the unecessary charm and character development. And hotness. Only Sookie is antisocial and is helping her family kill vampires while she's dating one.

While obliviously living the worst possible manifestation of a prejudice, this vampire killing family is repeatedly injured, rescued by the vampire boyfriend (who never takes her to task for attempting to murder

Post listen review:

You know when you go out hunting vampire blood so that you can sell it on ebay for it's regenrative powers and then after you want to relax and hit a club for fun at night? Well, if you don't recognize the fact that the guy who is trying to pick you up is a vampire/warlock then that means that you are a bad vampire hunter and should probably quit the day job and try to break in to showbusiness instead.

This was NOT the worst romance I have heard. But it was pretty silly. This

Wow, she did it again. This is only the second book I've read from her but Amanda's work just fascinates me. If I were to think of this book as a recipe, the ingredients of my favorite vamp books would be as follows

I have read alot of reviews for this author on other books she has written. There are alot of mixed reviews where her writing is concerned. this book is the first book I've read written by her. The beginning starts out okay, but it does keep you interested enough to wonder what is going to happen. The relationship with erik and Daisey, starts out pretty good but then it seems too... lack of a better word, "simple". I like her brother Alex. He's a very irritating but loveable character.

Ok, you are a professional Blood Thief. This means that you go out during the day hunting for sleeping vampires to steal blood from so that you can sell it on Ebay for it's regenerative powers. Then when you meet a cute guy at the club, called THE CRYPT, no less, the following night and you DON'T recognize the fact that he's a vampire you should just quit your day job!!!

Seriously? This was kind of ridiculous. Daisy hunts vampires for profit but it's ok cause she doesn't kill them she just steals

4 stars. WOW! This was such a shockingly amazing book! Now, I don’t mean that in a derogatory way as Ms. Ashley is one of my all time favorite vampire romance authors. No, what I mean was, compared to how it started! This book, much to my chagrin, started out very, very slowly. I didn’t see much of a plot beyond the obvious vampire/human dilemma. Boy, was I wrong!!

Daisy O’Donnell is a Blood Thief- she takes some blood from vampires while they are sleeping to sell on the internet. (Don’t worry-

I got this book out of the library as an ebook and there was no description about it. I went onto GRACE and read some of the reviews.... The reviews were either very good or very bad! I was not certain I was going to like the book and struggled with the first few chapters. The reason I struggled with the first few chapters was that Daisy is a thief and she breaks into people's homes to steal blood from the occupants when they are sleeping. If they wake and get cross at her she kills them. Societ ...more

I was excited at the pretense of this book. However, it is poorly written and the plot suffers for it. It is a romance novel and even the romance is poor. The author randomly switches point of view, changes things either accidentally or purposely from 2,000$ to 200,000$. It is very choppy and would have benefitted from several editing tries.
Tasha
Daisy is a blood theft. Erik is a vampire. So of course these two cannot coexist together. But Daisy and Erik just can’t seem to stay away from each other. When Daisy steals the blood of the female the head vampire of Los Angeles turned, she and Erik must work together to keep her off the radar.

This one started out a little slow for my liking. It picked up somewhat with the arrival of Daisy’s brother Alex. With his arrival there was a tad bit more action going on in the case of vampire hunting.

Kelley (Against GR Censorship)
There are many issues I have with this book that prevented me from liking it. My major grievance is the fact that they were supposed to be following the family tradition of vampire hunting, and yet Daisy and her family seemed like amateurs when faced with actual combat. Just because they have collected a list of known vamps does not make them professional. Additionally, other inconsistencies in the world and character reactions took me right out of the story. Worst of all, the love scenes rated ...more
Carrie Felton
This was a great story. It delved into the human experience in a wonderful way. However, everything was very mellow and sort of lacking in excitement at times. it was also very predictable with everything turning out perfectly in the end without complete explanation.
Mhollie
What could have been... Very disappointing. It is the first time I read this author and it will probably be the last. The story had great possibilities, but to me author just never finished it. It was like reading a first draft that was never fleshed out. Never polished. There was just no emotion to the book. The characters were too rote and had no feeling to them. There was also continuity issues. ie. Daisy never kept anything harder than root beer in the house, the author extolled, yet her bro ...more
Paraphrodite
This one was hard going. I just don't understand how anybody would fall for the heroine and help with her idiotic family. The whole book feels like a teenage romance. This is one to avoid.
Kathy
Very good book. You feel bad for all the struggles the characters have to go through, and wonder if they will ever be able to be happy.
