The vampires of Malibu are ecstatic when Paige, Sienna's older sister, returns from Paris early but, she is hiding something and her bubbly and bright facade starts to slip. Jason can never really be sure about what troubles he'll be dragged into but, as long as he has his gorgeous girlfriend, he's sure he'll be fine but, strange things start to happen to Sienna's sister. Flowers, letters, things that would be seen as romantic but, each of these occurrences scare Paige, she seems terrified. The ...more
An amazing book, couldn't put it own, jst like any other good books i've read. I lurveee Siennna and Jason. My favourite out of all the Vampire Beach Series, this book was also the first one i've read cos some one else burrowed the first. So i had to read from the end and i just wanted to learn more about the characters.

P.S. I think Bell and Adam should totalllyyyyy hook up <3

aimed I think at the younger end of the YA scale but if you're after an extremely light, no hidden secrets, no adult content at all this is for you.

For some reason I have read up to book 6 (I think that's all published till now). if I'm honest the spin on vamps is a little different and some of the characters a little endearing.

And it's sometimes good to get a little light relief from heavy serious reading!!!!

We finally meet Siennas legendary sister Paige who rocks up a month early home from c

Sienna’s sister arrives home unexpectantly. During a typical Vampire Beach party, she receives an odd delivery. She then talks the whole gang into going to Las Vegas with her, but trouble follows and they get caught up in a high stakes poker game with a member of one the vampire’s first families.
While a lot of fun this story had a lot of basic errors. First off, supposing Belle is working on getting Adam to be less of a geek, but most of the time she seems to just be encouraging it. He also wa

Taking off from Legacy, Jason and Sienna are together and are as happy as can being. For once everything seems perfect to Jason, and spring break in Malibu. However, when Sienna’s older sister, Paige, comes home from Paris unannounced and suggests the entire group to spend their Spring break in Vegas, that’s when the trouble begins. I love the way Jason’s character is written, yes, he’s human and is dating a vampire; he is still in all the action. Unlike a lot of vampire novels out there where t ...more

Overall, this is a really fun series. It reads like 80s teen fiction... kind of if Sweet Valley High were about vampires. The characters are well written and amusing, the plots are just enough off the wall to still be relatable and the vampires are easy to imagine. Too bad there is only one more book in this series!

Alright heres the thing when I read these I was out of things to read and they were on sale for $3.99 and it wasn't worth it cause they were GARBAGE (do not read) I am ashamed to say that I have read these books, I WOULDN'T EVEN GIVE IT HALF A STAR!

This, the fifth entry in the Vampire Beach novels, is another enjoyable read.This time the gang heads off to Las Vegas! I believe these books belong under the category of guilty pleasure. They are what they are....YA horror/romance/adventures! I have enjoyed every one of them.

I am liking this clean romance series. This book seemed more action packed then the rest and didn't end immediately after big action happened, so that made me like it more than the others.
