"What a world, when you can't even trust the dead ones."

Earlier this year I randomly requested a book by an author I had never heard of (not that this is unusual for me..) and devoured what turned out to be book one in the Bite Nights series. I was totally delighted by the story, surprised it was her debut, and couldn't wait for more. Just recently I was similarly lucky enough to be approved for book two and knew I wouldn't be able to wait long before diving in. And lo and behold here we are.

'Drop Dead Gorgeous' by Juliet Lyons is the Second Book in The "Bite Nights" series. This is the story of Mila Hart and Vincent Ferrer. I have read the previous book but feel you can make this a standalone book.
Mila was looking for love but ended up with a dangerous date who nearly killed her. But luckily Vincent was on the case and saved her. Although this left Mila feeling down on love it was hard to fight the strong feelings that were making their way toward Vincent. Vincent is a cop but als

When Vincent is in a hurry the man often forgets the necessities, "with a final worried look, he leaps off the bed. “Wait,” I say, as his hand closes around the doorknob. “What about your clothes?” He glances down at himself in surprise. There is a thin sheen of sweat shimmering between the ridges of his muscles, his thick length purple and raw from our lovemaking. Golden strands of his hair stick up from his head like a toilet brush. “Not that I don’t think that’s an exceptionally good look on ...more

"Guess there's a new badass in town, eh? Watch out, ladies. London's answer to John McClane is coming to a police station near you. Fuck you, Mr. UPS. How many vampires has that wife-robbing bastard killed, eh?" --Sgt. Lee Davies (this plugs into a reoccurring joke, ha!)

Even though most of the novels I veer toward are historicals, I do like to sprinkle some contemporaries and PNRs throughout my regular reads to spice things up so I don't burn myself out on the genre. I especially love fun novel

She ends up with a murderer her first time out ( talk about having a really having a crappy night!), but luckily for Mila, she’s rescued by Inspector Vincent Ferrer, a sexy vampire cop from the Metropolitan Police. She thinks all’s well that ends well..until (bad news)she realizes the killer isn’t finished with her just yet, but (good news) Vincent is assigned to protect her.

Ramblings:
The hero [Inspector Vincent Ferrer] and supporting characters [Superintendent Burke and Sergeant Davies] are somewhat reminiscent of Christie’s Poirot and his interactions with Inspector Japp and Captain Hastings. If you’ll remember, Japp worked for Scotland Yard. As do Ferrer, Burke, and Davies-with one major distinction: Ferrer’s a vampire!

Summary:
Mila Hart is done, D-O-N-E, dating married men [he lied/she didn’t know] and serial killers. The online dating site V-Date.com was to be t

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads

This is my second book read in this series and i'm completely enjoying the stories! I tore up Paranormal Romance several years ago but sort of fell off on reading them so these have been the first I've picked back up in years. How I love the loathing, lonely, tortured vampire! Vincent isn't the saddest of them, in fact he loves his job and that's something. He meets Mila after thwarting another vampire from murdering her during th

Mila is not exactly lucky in love. After getting dumped by her (Surprise!) married boyfriend, she decides to try an undead dating service and finds herself with a hot vamp...who is a killer! Yikes! About to become her date’s next victim, she is rescued by Inspector Vincent Ferrer, who it turns out is also a vampire. A hot and yummy vamp! Of course, the killer gets away but doesn’t stay away. Now the only thing that can keep Mila safe is to stay with Vincent while they hunt down the killer vamp. ...more

Drop Dead Gorgeous is the second in the series but can be read standalone just fine. Mila has a history of failed dating experiences so figures to shake things up by giving V-Date a try. Her world is more than shaken up it explodes! She is rescued by the hottest guy she has ever seen who turns out to be a cop who happens to be a vampire.
I really enjoyed the interplay between Vincent and his cop buddies. Mila was cute and funny. Vincent had issues but wasn’t angsty about it. I really want Cat an

A big thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for the ARC for my honest review. Since the book won't be out for a while-no spoilers. I have not read any books previously by this author. I would say that this reads like a stand alone. I enjoyed it and I feel that most people who like paranormal romance will enjoy this book. Give it a try and let me know. Happy reading.

This is the first book that I have read by this author and I totally enjoyed it. Talk about first dates! Mila was so lucky that Vincent was there for her after her first date with a vampire turned into a night of terror. But the story isn't all dark, there is plenty of snarky humor and the chemistry shines between the H/h. There was just something so charming about Vincent and his old fashioned ways at times.
I am not a fan of first person, my personal preference, and so I think it could

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS is the second book in the Bite Night series. If you have not read the first book in the series, don’t worry. This can be read as a standalone.

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS is a story about Mila Hart. Mila has been unlucky in love. For some reason she always seemed to date losers. Her last boyfriend of two years was married with two kids. Something she was unaware of while they were dating. Hence, the reason why she broke up with him. Wanting to try something different, Mila decides to si

Mila was on a first date with a vampire she had contacted through V date which was a Vampire dating service. She had been in a two year relationship only to find the man was married. So Mila decided to try something new and different. Mila met the man for drinks at The World's End which was a very public place and she could be safe so she thought. The Vampire looked at her like she was a rare and exquisite gem. But mila was not attracted to him even though he was handsome. Then the Vampire menti ...more

Drop Dead Gorgeous by Juliet Lyons is the 2nd book in her Bite Nights series. This series is a paranormal story line revolving around a dating service for vampires and humans.

When she decides to date a vampire from the V-Date internet service, it turns out to be a disaster that almost costs her life. The handsome vampire is a serial killer, and just when ...more

I read this book yesterday, sometime before going to bed and there's something quirky and interesting about the relationship between Mila and Vincent.
Before I start babbling, let me break it down: there's a site like Tinder, it's called V-date and here you can go on a date with a vampire. Mila does this after breaking up with her boyfriend and her first date turns out to be a serial killer. He takes her out to an alley to kill her but before he does so, detectives show up and save her- one of t

Whenever I pick up a series after the first title, I get a little worried. There were allusions to the first book in here, but I was glad to see that I wasn't completely lost.

The whole idea behind this is kind of genius: it's modern dating. As someone who met her fiance online, it's kind of hilarious to read a book that's about vampires online dating. Plus, vampires are generally hotties these days,

Juliet is a new author for me. Let me tell you this Vampire Rom-Com is fantastic! Witty banter is like a drug for me. I eat it up. And the back and forth between these characters was so perfect.

Mila is striking out in the dating scene. After having no luck with human men she decides to sign up for a Vampire dating app. Only it turns into the worst and best date ever depending on how you look at it. Worst because her date tries to kill her. Best because she meets the hot cop, Vincent who comes to

Girl meets vampire online and goes on date. Vampire turns out to be serial killer. Hot detective vampire saves girl. Hot vampire and girl get thrust together while solving the case of the serial killer vampire on the loose. Sparks, romance, and suspense ensues.

While Drop Dead Gorgeous can be read as a standalone, I would suggest reading book one (Dating the Undead) first for some more context.

The romance is definitely steamy (at times a little too much), but the plot and character development i

I was excited to have the opportunity to read an ARC of this book on NetGalley.

When her hellish date tries to kill Mila, sexy vampire Vincent saves her and vows to keep her safe.

Drop Dead Gorgeous, book two in Juliet Lyons’ “V-Date” series, is a fun and sexy paranormal romance.

The series provides a fresh take on vampire mythology. The UK setting is a delicious treat for a US-based reader. The humor often had me laughing out loud and the love scenes are the perfect blend of sexy and sweet. The s

I don't know what it is about a good paranormal romance but they just make me all smiley and happy. I needed a break from plain ol' romance and knew Juliet Lyon's Drop Dead Gorgeous was just what I needed. And I was not wrong. I devoured this book and loved every minute of it. Mila and Vincent were wonderful characters and their relationship was so enjoyable. The supporting cast was just as strong.

Smoking hot, amazing sexy chemistry. Mila and Vincent have such a fun and charismatic relationship, you can almost feel the stem coming off the page the instant that they met. Mila was on a date with a vampire; the first date with a vampire that did not turn out how she planned it, it brought someone that she did not think she needed into her life though. The words flowed magically off the page and captivated me from beginning to end. Thank you NetGalley and Juliet Lyons for allowing me to read ...more

I loved, loved, loved this book. I fell in love with Mila and especially Vincent. I was almost sad when I finished the book. This book is now a part of my favorites. I can't wait to read more of Juliet Lions' books.
