This could have been so, SO much better if the story had a different focus!
There is a reason why romance novels end with a wedding, sometimes followed by a few pages of honeymoon shmexing (do not expect it in Jessica Rules the Dark Side, it is a very young YA novel). When the lovers are bound together for eternity, when there are no more misunderstandings and tension, how do you continue writing about a married couple and keep things hot and dynamic between them? Only a few authors can ...more

When I initially picked up this series I became furious - there was only two books in the series and then POOF it was gone, just like that! I was addicted, I needed more and Beth hadn't provided the literature to fill that need. With a book and sweet and cute as this one, it was highly upsetting.
The Romanian vampire universe that Beth built within these two books was thrilling. We foll ...more
Note that there would be spoilers, I noticed how my reviews contained them. Winks. :)
I think this book is recommended to those fans who wanted to see what Lukey and Jess' marriage life will be. Although the entire story was about Jessica becoming a full-pledged vampire queen.

What I was expecting from this book and what happened were really different. I was expecting Jessica to have grown and matured and be confident in what she was doing. Instead, I just wanted to hurt her throughout most of the book. She second guessed everything and pretty much let others control her and didn't seem to catch on t ...more
Whereas the first book was completely hilarious and sweet, this one was just grim. Just a lot of stress, worry, and more stress on poor Jessica's mind. I guess it was naïve of me to hope for more humor when it was obvious that this would be about how Jessica Rules the Dark Side. I suppose you can't get a bundle of laughs out of the dark side...I should' ...more

This one wasn't as entertaining/funny as the first one. I think the plot was too serious without the background to support it. Also, I didn't like the characters as much. They seemed to be missing something and I can't quite put my finger on it. They felt drab and a little lost, so I also felt lost. ...more
En este caso, no es del todo verdad, pues es agradable de leer, ya que la trama de los complots da un nuevo giro a la historia.
Pero yo es que soy de las que aman a Lucius, y verle en una celda encerrado todo el libro, me parte el alma.
The plot itself wasn’t so bad although there could have been more substance to it. The reader already has a hunch as to who is behind the entire plot - a little mystery wo ...more

The plot picks up with Jessica already married to Lucius and now a full-time princess struggling with her duties. She's worried about not being good enough for Lucius, not being confident or knowledgeable enough to rule the vamps and not being strong enough to fulfill the tasks given to her.
Things get harder when Lucius is jailed for a crime she's sure--pretty sure--he didn't commit. If he'd convicted, he wi ...more
The girl in the cover looks so pretty with her dress! She looks like how I imagined Jessica would be like when reading the book! I also love how she holds the stake with her other hand, showing how Jessica finally becomes a stronger character who takes hold of her powers and royalty!
Ruling a kingdom should be easy....right?
Jessica is finally living in Romania. And of course she is living with Lucius! Lucius is no l ...more
