It's been a while since I read any of the books in this series so I had kind of forgotten the characters, but I still fell into place with the story quite well. I really enjoyed Libby and Ralph's characters. The add-in of dragons into this book was different from the usual vampire/werewolf paranormal romance books I'm used to reading so that was a nice change, though I still love my vamps the best. This was a really fun, quick read and I'm looking forward to see what happens next with the charac ...more

When I found the first book from The Broken Heart Series not only the title but cover art caught my eye right away. I purchased all of the books the store had at the time. Oh and I failed to mention it was a Friday evening.... I read until my eye wouldn't stay open, laughed out loud, at one point my Husband started to make snarky remarks. I had a book in hand everything where that weekend. By Early Monday morning all five had been read and I had maybe two hours of sleep before work. They are by ...more

Silly, snarky, and altogether entertaining, "Wait till Your Vampire Gets Home" is Michele Bardsley's latest about Broken Heart, OK. Broken Heart is a paranormal town. When some infected vampires got loose and attacked 11 townspeople, the 'Constortium' bought the town, encouraged the normals to move and helped the new vampires transition into their new life and new jobs. Since then, things just keep getting weirder and now Bardsley has added dragons to the mix!

Laugh out loud funny! Great story. The action was a little choppy and jarring in a few places, had trouble keeping track of who was doing what, but a great book.

So happy to see Ralph get some love. Libby is perfect for him and the boys! Can't wait to see what the new addition adds to broken heart.

When I initially finished this book last night, I had thought it wasn’t all that bad. Of course, there were a few things that had gotten annoying, but the humor and the book’s concept kind of made up for it. However, as the hours went by, I liked it less and less. I’ve now come to realize that this book is basically the condensed adult version of Twilight and maybe even a bit worse.
Unlike Twilight, there weren’t any sparkly vampires to deal with (thank god!), but it did still read like somethi

Not the highlight of the series.

Libby Monroe comes from a family of paranormal investigators, running PRIS, better aka Paranormal Research and Investigation Services. When PRIS decides to investigate some interesting rumors of paranormal activity near the town of Broken Heart things get wild when Libby is attacked by a zombie, a tainted vampire and gets mixed up in a battle between dragons all in the course of a few minutes. This kind of proof is exactly the sort of thing she needs for PRIS to g

This was a very enjoyable, humorous book! It was the 1st one that I read from the series and I will definitely be reading more.
Libby is a paranormal investigator who stumbles across a good looking man in a cemetery, Ralph. She then meets several vampires, zombies, werewolves, and dragons. She and Ralph become friends/companions and things keep getting set on fire. Add in some more twists and turns and more fires and I couldn't put this book down.

I'm a fan of the series. I honestly think as it goes along it gets better in my opinion. I read some reviews on it and there are a few who didnt like this book in particular and it mostly had to do with Libby and Ralph. I dunno...I just didnt see it I guess. I found this to be hilarious and I so laughed out loud a few times. I read in one sitting and stayed up late to finish it. Now, I can understand a little how some would be annoyed with Libby's character she was a bit all over the place in he ...more

Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home is the 4th book in the Broken Heart, Oklahoma series by Michele Bardsley.

The book can be read (and is okay) as a stand alone, but is certainly much better if read in series order.

In the first book, a "sick" vampire is running lose in the small town of Broken Heart, Oklahoma - aptly named for the high number of single parents in town - and accidentally turns twelve single parents into new vampires. So far, each of the books has been about one of the newly turned s

I don't typically dig on paranormal romance, but I do love this series. I've reviewed two of the three of the series, BECAUSE YOUR VAMPIRE SAID SO and OVER MY DEAD BODY. (my reviews) Michele had me at I'M THE VAMPIRE THAT'S WHY. Excellent premise of a little town in Oklahoma being taken over by supernatural beings for a place to call their own, the shenanigans, some kickass fighting to keep the town and the hot monkey love. It's all tied up in a witty paranormal package that keeps me reading mor ...more

What I Loved: I really love the continuation of this series and how it is encompassing the books that came before it. The couple in this book were both very lovable and relatively equals (no real alpha/beta). He was a strong male role model: good father, loyal husband (when his wife was alive), and had good priorities. She was a strong, educated, and earthy based person that you could count on. I really just enjoyed watching them fall in love (and no that isn't a spoiler--it is a romance novel L ...more

Perhaps I’m a bit biased, but I thoroughly enjoyed the fourth installment of the Broken Heart Vampires series.

Michele Bardsley’s Wait till Your Vampire Gets Home focuses on the only single-dad-turned-vampire in Broken Heart, Ralph. I’ll admit I was a bit disappointed when I opened the first page and realized that the story was not told from Ralph’s POV. Instead, the story is told from the perspective of Libby Monroe, a paranormal investigator.

This series just keeps getting better and better. Whilst it is a light fluffy read it is also full of fun and likable characters.

This one came with added Dragons which was an unexpected bonus.

Libby Monroe, and her team of PRIS (Paranormal Research & Investigation Service) which includes her parents have decided to stake out the town of Broken Heart and she was assigned the cemetery. Within about 5 minutes she is attacked by a crazed vampire, saved by a zombie, gets hot & bothered by anot
This series seems to get better and better each book. Each time I declare one best, another one tops it.

This is the fourth instalment of the addicting Broken Heart series. I love the books fun, light feel while making me feel attach at the same time. I would move to Broken Heart Town anytime. IT is the best town there is, I tell you

I liked this one better than the last one, thankfully. Patsy irritated me in this one too, though. I just don't like her at all. I wasn't too crazy about Stan's character in here either. I'm glad he ended up marrying Linda, but even that was kind of a let-down. He gets injured, leaves, and comes back the next day married and a vampire. After all the build-up of his non-romance with Linda in the previous books, it seems so unfair that he barely got a blurb in this one when they finally got togeth ...more

Libby has been the least interesting character of the bunch so far out of this series. The book had a weird start with it being through Libby's perspective, a non-vampire who is an outsider to Broken Heart. I thought it might be a nice change of pace, but instead I felt like I had everything reexplained to me from the first three books. I think the whole thing would have been more successful if it was from Ralph's perspective, but I guess Bardsley can't write from a male voice. The love interest ...more

What is the book about?
The story is narrated in first person by Libby Monroe who is a paranormal investigator that stumbled upon the jackpot of all her findings in Broken Heart. She had only been in the city for a short while when she already found herself in danger. Not to worry she is quickly saved by Ralph who is one handsome vampire.

Another good story in this series of books by Michelle Bardsley

Libby Monroe has come to Broken Heart, Oklahoma, with her parents to look for paranormal activity for her job as an investigator with PRIS – she gets more than she bargained for. At the cemetery she is watching single father and new vampire Ralph Genessa as he puts flowers on his wife’s grave. In the next instant they are being attacked by a Zombie, a Wraith who has the taint (a Vampire illness), just when they get over that 2 dragon

Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home by Michele Bardsley, the fourth book in the Broken Heart Vampire series.
This chick-lit-paranormal book centres around the character of Libby Moore.
Libby is a journalist, she is chasing round after bizarre tales of strange happenings, vampires, lycanthropes and zombies. Libby arrives in Oklahoma following up these various tales, the last thing on her mind is love. However when she meets a single father called Ralph Genessa, and falls in love with him instantly.

Okay, so I've read this whole book series. Twice. Yet, this whole series, happens to be one of my favourites. So, I think I'm just gonna be my chaotic self and post them in a weird order! Don't you love me?

So, Wait Till Your Vampire Gets Home really is a brilliant book. I couldn't say anything other then that. But it's not a book that you should take seriously. No way. You would definitely be disappointed if you did that. I think I remember reading a few plot holes, but it doesn't damage the boo
This is a paranormal romance series with single parents as the heroes/heroines in a town that has been taken over by paranormal creatures. It's a cute, fluffy book, and if you don't might occasional inconsistencies, it's a fun read. This book is about dragons and the single vampire dad with three year old twins and a paranormal investigator named Libby. A whole bunch of new characters join the cast in this book. (Too many, really - it's hard to keep them all straight!) I get the impression that ...more
These are just so fun and light!

In this one we have Liberty Monroe and Ralph Genessa in the spotlight. Liberty is a Paranormal Investigator who comes to Broken Heart, Oklahoma to try and capture some evidence of paranormal activity. Liberty is scanning the local cemetary when she spots a man planting flowers on a womans grave. The man happens to be Ralph who is a widower with twin 3 year old boys and lives in Broken Heart. And he is a Vampire.

This one was pretty good. It's getting a little over the top, though, even for books of this genre, which are on the wacky side to start with. In the first few pages, our heroine encounters vampires, werewolves, zombies and dragons. Also, Bardsley is getting a bit too flexible on her inter-species rules, as far as inter-relationships, offspring, and abilities. Still, it's light and fun, with a fair amount of drama. I did think the relationship between the lead characters developed a bit too inst ...more

This is the 4th book in the series. I'm not sure if its because I read the last book last August, or what, but I had a hard time reading this book. I normally can remember all of the characters in series, but I jusst could not remember anything about the characters in this one. And there wasn't a lot of details reminding you who each character was. Because of this, I just didn't enjoy it as much. And maybe that was my fault. I liked the humor, and the romance (I would love a Ralph of my own!) I ...more

This is a nice easy read. Lots of action happening with dragons attacking the town. If you're looking for something deep and earth moving probably not what your looking for but for a light reading it's entertaining. A quirky town and entertaining characters. Libby and Ralph were both sweet and I liked that both focused so much on his twin boys. The little boys were pretty cute too. I liked the idea of a paranormal research group stumbling onto the town. Everything stayed pretty much on the surfa ...more
