Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.
But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire sucking the blood from her fiancé, Greg. Horrified, ...more

Why this book?
It seemed like a book for me
What I thought
This book, what can I say about this book? The premise is interesting. I really liked Nick and his group. Elle kinda bored me she was just a one dimensional character. There barely was any romance; one sex scene, but that’s practically all you get. No Sexual Tension no sparks flying; none. I also found Elle becoming a kick ass vampire slayer overnight was a little unrealistic. It wasn’t all bad though it had interesting characters ...more
Elle is just a regular gal, going to college and hanging out with friends, when she walks in to find her fiancé being bitten by a vampire. At that moment she inadvertently becomes a vampire hunter. I like that she has no special powers or skills or a destiny. She even goes so far as to squeak when vampires jump out at ...more
he description for LEGALLY UNDEAD was what originally drew me in (it certainly wasn’t the cover). I was intrigued by the idea of a plain-jane girl all of a sudden discovering the world of vampires, and not in a romantic way. LEGALLY DEAD is most definitely urban fantasy, and follows a similar track as many other UF novels, but it manages to still be somewhat unique and distinguish itself from the pack.
One of the ways that LEGALLY UNDEAD is different t ...more
Originally reviewed on Romancing the Dark Side:
In a word...FANGTASTIC!!!
Elle Dupree is on her way to living the perfect life. She’s planning a wedding, working on her Ph.D and her fiancé Greg is working for a prestigious law firm in New York. Things couldn’t be better. The last thing she expected was coming home to a blood thirsty vampire feeding on her soon to be husband and going all Buffy on the vamp, while a team of vampire hunters storm into her apartment to “clean up” the mes ...more
“It’s never easy to see an ex for the first time after you’ve broken up. Seeing an ex for the first time after he’s been turned into a bloodthirsty evil creature of the night is possibly even less easy.”...more
The book's summary basically all happens in chapter one. It starts out with this girl walking in on her fiance essentially being murdered by a vampire. We find out shortly after that he was probably "turned" and so perhaps is not quite literally dead, but still. For all in ...more
Legally Undead is a standalone paranormal/horror novel.
Elle has everything planned with her life. She's going to graduate and get married to her lawyer fiancé Greg. Everything was perfect until she walks in on a horror scene. Her fiancé is held in the grip of a creature of nightmares, a vampire. Blood is everywhere and instead of being terrified she gets angry and runs at the vampire. Armed with nothing but a ...more
This. Book is exciting and the characters most interesting. When I started reading I just couldn't put it down. I'm wondering if Elle will be able to find Greg....and what's up with Nick? I'm moving on to the next in the series to find out. ...more
LEGALLY UNDEAD is not like most UF it is a mixture of fantasy and reality. Even with all the vampires Elle’s story was very real. Elle is sassy and sexy but with a smart mind but so much changed for her when she saw the vampire sucking every life out of his body. She lived a normal life with school and friends even though she hunted for vampires. Elle is poised for the adventure yet she does not rush towards danger. Elle is sassy and sexy but with a smart mind but so much changed for her...more
Although thinking back I don’t really think she loved Greg the way you should if you’re going to marry someone.
So she kind of gets thrust in to this life of vampire hunting with the help of some new friends.
Nick and his team are out to protect the humans and hunt the vampires. They take Elle under their wi ...more
What an incredibly good story! This one had it all, romance, action, fights, parts that had me laughing and even a sad part that made me cry.
I read the whole book in one sitting, I c ...more
(view spoiler)[It didn't sit that great with me how quickly Elle got over Greg. She never had any kind of breakdown, hell she never even shed a tear ...more
This book was provided by the narrator via audiobook blast dot com for an honest review.
The narration on this is great, I enjoyed the voices given to the characters, she made the story enjoyable to listen to...even when the main character completely irritated me and made me want to stop.
The story though.....I have mixed feelings. It started out great and Elle is a great character....strong, adapts to the changes extremely well....and then there ...more
One minute you're planning a wedding, living a normal life. The next minute you find out vampires are real, have to kill one, and realize your fiance is now undead as well. I listened to the audiobook version, and it was so much fun! Our main character ended up a bad ass vampire hunter. The best scene in the book was when she busted into the door covered in blood, and holding a vampire head! I really liked that although she was slashing vampire heads and such, that her emotions felt re ...more
I’m not always a fan of books about vampires but I did enjoy this one. Vampires in this book are not the good guys. They are and do exactly what we were used to.
What I liked the most in this story was Elle. She’s one kickass heroine. She’s wity, strong, capable and determined. Most people in her position would curl up in a corner but she doesn’t. She decides to fight.
Legally undead is a fun, well-written and easy to read. I’m curious to s ...more
This is a fantastic start to a new series. The characters are interesting and the storyline is great. I look forward to the next installment in this series and more from Margo Bond Collins. The more I read by her the more I enjoy her writing style. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. ...more
The story caught my interest by page one. I was so enthralled by the story I still up way too late and was a zombie at work. But it was worth it.
Just when you think the good guys are winning, boom the bad guys strike a win. Really looking forward to the next story.
This book is not your conventional vampire story. It has humor and drama and you could almost believe it could be true. I enjoyed it very much and can't wait for the next in the series. ...more
