5☆  Dating with Bite

When I see the cover for Dating the Undead I loved it... the blurb was exciting.
It didn't disappoint!

The whole concept for a vampire dating site where humans and Vamps can meet & mix is fantastic... it's fresh, and so different from the "normal" dark vampire books.

V-Date is the name of the Vampire dating service.
 However it does attract attention from all kinds of people... including those with influencing power! As to why they have an interest.... well all will be reveal

Audiobook review. Cute story. While I don't expect vampire stories to have much believability, I did have some eye-rolling moments as I listened. Silver is, like many folks, trying to find love. She is quite fluid in her approach and goes with the flow, which can be good at times and others not so much. I liked Logan because he stuck to his principles despite strong opposition. In that way, they are almost opposites.

The love scenes were ok. The writing, pacing, and transitions good. I would hav

Who knew that the New Year’s Eve from Hell would broaden Silver’s dating horizons beyond the norm and into the world of V-Date, the online dating service that pairs humans and vampires? Leave it to London to be on the cutting edge of romance and leave it to Silver to fall for a vampire with more kindness and humanity in his left fang than the humans she has known.

Like the Princess who had to kiss a few frogs before finding her Prince, Silver is determined to find the vampire of her dating dream

While I enjoyed the interactions between Silver and Logan, the underlying plot and the dating site aspect/police didn't really work and the whole thing started to drag after they got together (view spoiler). Still a solid 3 stars.

Ok I spotted this and had all manner of expectations. Some were fulfilled and others not. I really liked the idea of a modern , independent woman living in London and certainly Silver is an intersting up for anything character. The idea of a dating site introducing vampires to humans in this post revelation era also ticked my boxes as I loved the idea that someone normally considered irresistible would need help looking for partners. Yes the author certainly knows how to engage h

4 "Ulterior Motives or True Love?" Stars for the story and 4.5 Stars for the narration.

Lovers of humorous vampire romances (for example, Molly Harper fans) will be the most intrigued by Dating the Undead. I must admit that in my case it was the cover art that drew me in and the blurb further convinced me to give this story a listen. In the end, I'm glad I did as it was a fun romance that fit in perfectly as a breath of fresh air in between my more typical serious romantic listens (as I'm a big f

"Get back here, vampire. I felt you up; now you feel me up. That's how it works in the twenty-first century. This isn't Jane Austen. I'm not bloody Elizabeth Bennet."

Honestly, I don't know how anyone can look at the concept for this book and not want to read it. Obviously a fun concept or pitch doesn't always guarantee that your expectations will live up to the premise but in the case of DATING THE UNDEAD, it did. And in such unexpected ways.

Any book that makes me laugh gets 4 stars. This one was funny. I liked the world building, the heroine was funny but not abrasive, and the hero was protective but not overbearing.

Juliet Lyons’ debut paranormal romance is a madcap adventure of biting humor, steamy chemistry, eclectic characters, and some over the top antics. A strong and personable heroine delights as she navigates her way through the treacherous waters of online dating. A steamy romance balances well with the intrigue and suspense though some plotlines fizzle out while others seem to take the longest route possible to resolution. Disappointment occu

Minx -The Genre Minx Book Reviews
Dating the Undead is a romance with plenty of zing! After a brief run in with vampire Logan Byrne on New Year’s Eve, Silver Harris decides that she is sick of dating ordinary guys and wants something different. After all she is the kind of girl to only have one date so she needs plenty of choices. When her step-sister brings up the idea of v-date, a dating service that caters to the undead and mortals, Silver is all in. I loved how the vampires were portrayed in this story. They were sexy as all ...more

Ramblings:
Logan’s 176 yrs. older than Silver. He’s 200. She’s 24. I suppose this gives a whole new slant to the May-December romance trope. Luckily, this “December” is a green-eyed hot Irish vamp. Allowances should must be made!

Summary:
Silver Harris will stop at nothing on her quest for answers. The search into her mother’s disappearance plunges Harris into the unpredictable world of online dating. She’ll meet Mr. Dead Wrong and date her way to Absolutely Not! It’s only when she meets Logan that

Loved, loved, loved this story! I was lucky enough to have read the Wattpad version and have already ordered the paperback edition! There is a sassy leading lady, sexy and scary vampires, action, mystery and plenty of paranormal suspense. I'll predict that DTU will be made into a movie or two, it's that entertaining.

Silver and Logan, a vampire, meet and kiss on New Year ’s Eve. As a result, Silver decides to join a dating site that is for vampires. Unfortunately, it’s not really working out for her. The police have a proposition for her that she accepts and suddenly Logan is back in her life and things get a little sticky.

Silver is not my favorite heroine. She annoyed me and it felt like she tried too hard to be a tough chick and it just didn’t work. Logan was a pretty decent hero but not really all alpha t

I'm generally a big fan of paranormal romance, but this one was just OK for me. Starting out, I didn't find the heroine to be very relatable so that could have been part of it. My favorite character was actually the quirky old neighbor (I wish we had seen more of her). I don't have much to say about this book. It was paranormal cute with a bit of a "Mafia" vibe.

That being said, I might try the next book in the series. I was definitely intrigued by the vampire cop and I'm hoping a different heroi

Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

Dating the Undead had a premise I was excited about: a dating website for vampires. That sounds pretty cool, right? And I’m always trying to find romances that do something new with the paranormal romance genre. However, as fun as watching ancient beings attempt to use modern technology to date sounds, that’s not what I got. What I got was disappointment and a bad case of agita.

I was really excited about the prospect of modern dating. The heroine isn’t a

DATING THE UNDEAD was a different kind of vampire read than I'm normally used to. It had a real undertone of fun and snark in which I found engaging. I would have liked a little more building of this particular vampire world to really understand the context as the reality of vampires in the human world was a new concept for society.

Silver was the kind of heroine that needs to grow on you. Her character wasn't instantaneously likeable but she did have depth to her character and was mult
