The main character is 18-year-old Paris who wants to become a famous singer. Her boyfriend, Sean, has similar dreams. At the beginning of the book, Paris is working as a stripper. Her attitude towards her job is one of many confusing things in this book. She says that her boyfriend completely supports her in everything she does, even her job. But they always fight because he wants her to leave her job. Then she acts like she enjoys stripping (plus she likes making money), but later on, when she becomes sorta famous, she calls him 'a little bitch' because he 'let her degrade herself every night to support herself'. WTF? He told you to stop! Then we have Miles. He's the second love interest, the rich guy who's also very important in music industry. He hates strip-clubs, but he still celebrates his birthday in a strip-club. The girls in this club are supposed to be the most beautiful, but of course, to him they're all mediocre, until he sees her: "She was by far the baddest mothafucka in the whole place." So she gives him a lap dance, and after one lap dance, she 'feels safe around him'. They spend the night together (just talking), and tommorow, he's sure that she's the next big thing in the music industry. By now, they're in love with each other. BUT. A PROBLEM: This girl he usually sleeps with, Tammy, is kinda jealous. Also pregnant. He's not interested in having a kid before marriage, so he calls some guy and tells him to get rid of Tammy. Then he decorates Paris's room with hundreds of roses, because he wants to show her 'how compassionate he is'. You just ordered a murder! How the hell are you compassionate! "... and with Tammy out of the way, he needed a new piece of arm candy." And when he hears the news of Tammy's death: "Miles was sad to see her go this way but happy that she and that little rotten kid she claimed was his, was gone forever! Some may look at him as a murderer but Tammy put it on herself." WHAT.THE.FUCK....more

She obviously doesn't like her 'best friend' Jane (and who would, she’s even worse than Alice), but for some strange reason they’re still best friends. At the beginning of the book she out with Jane, they get attacked and then (how predictable) a mysterious guy shows up and saves Alice (Jane doesn't need saving, because she already run away or something). The three of them go for a coffee. Jane and the waitress are all over the guy (Jack), but (of course), he only has eyes for Alice (this scene really reminded me of a similar scene in Twilight).
"There was something about him that made me trust him implicitly."
She hears him laugh: "Somehow, it warmed me through and through, and I realized that I would trust him with anything."
"But sitting here, in the booth with him, nothing had ever felt more natural or safe. This was where I was supposed to be."
So they start hanging out more and more, and everyone he meets is in love with him except for Alice. Because she’s SPECIAL. She figures out that he’s different, but doesn't know how, exactly. There’s a scene where she slices herself and he gets weird. How shocking!
"What exactly are you saying?" Jack narrowed his eyes at me, but there was a brightness to them. He was hoping I would figure it out. "You were bit, but there’s hardly a wound, and-and you have like super human strength and… everything in the whole world wants to have sex with you and… you don’t have a temperature!" I spouted. Biting my lip, I didn't look at him. I was trying to figure it all out, but none of it made sense. I could feel him looking at me, but I just couldn't put the puzzle together. "So?" Jack asked encouragingly. "So…" I threw my arms up in the air, feeling completely exasperated. "I don’t know! You’re a werewolf!"
The only character that was a little bit interesting was Peter. He’s another vampire, Jack’s brother. I liked his backstory. What I didn't like is Alice’s ridiculous "OMG, I can’t think of anything else when he’s around" reaction. And she wants him to bite her, because, er, I don’t know. I never really understood Alice. But if Peter doesn't want to, there’s always Jack. It seemed to me sometimes that she doesn't really care which one she ends up with. As long as he’s a hot vampire, she’s happy. Between Jack and Peter, I was rooting for Peter. But than I realized, if he 'won', he would have to spend the rest of his eternal life with Alice. Why would I want the poor guy to end up with her? She would bore him to death.
There are more books in the series, but there’s no way I’m reading them....more
