Bloodthirsty seemed very promising to me in premise. We have a teenage boy who's nerdy, a bit of a romantic, and always in his twin brother's shadow. After a chance encounter on the subway in New York where Finbar is mistaken for a vampire (due to his extreme paleness and allergy to the sun), Finbar decides to make the best of things. And he does this by making himself into a vampire.
That's about as far into the story as I got. I fully intended to root for the nerdy, nice guy to finally get the girl, but to me, Finbar was pervy. Sorry! He kept talking about how his love for books originally stemmed from wanting to go to the library because the librarian had big boobs. What little kid thinks like that? As a teen he's still talking about boobs and sex. While the pop culture references were funny, I couldn't get past the "boobies" enough to like Finbar as a character, or want him dating my friends.
