Ava Markham is beautiful, savvy, chic, and more at home with Kate Spade than with the idea of fangs and fur. She can't get quite used to the fact that some of closest friends have crossed over to the Other side. Then one night she is attacked by a rogue vampire, and her deepest fears are realized when her body begins a dangerous transformation from human to immortal--a cha ...more

The 7th book in the Others series was actually quite good, with Ava not being my fave character on the grounds that she was always a bitch, drinking too much hatearade. Finally she gets her own book and she was exceptionally funny and quite ironic that the things she has hated she become one. IN THE FACE!!!!!!!

I am not gonna go into details about others, they are supernatural beings our vamps, wolves, witches blah blah blah. Humans know about their existenc

Another hot read from Christine Warren. In "You're So Vein" she finally gives us the story of Ava--the most high-maintenance diva of all the original 'fantasy fix' girls. Ava has an issue with Others, so imagine what happens when she's attacked by a vampire, saved by another vampire, and then finds herself falling in love with her savior? Let's just say, "It ain't pretty."

Warren writes with a lot of humor and much of it is also bitingly sarcastic (which I adore). The verbal daggers thrown and ex
No stranger to the supernatural world, Ava Markham is prejudice against it none the less… until one fateful night when she gets attacked by a vampire.

Chancing upon Ava who had been left for dead, Vladimir "Dima" Rurikovich finishes the job of bringing her to the other side- and falls for the strong, ice queen who melts his heart like none before her.

Dima, sent from the old world to control and apprehend a rogue Vampiress, soon discovers that said Vamp is the one responsible for the attack on Ava

I hated Ava in all the other books in this series and I hate her still, even after hearing all the reasoning behind her behavior and attitude. Simply put, she's an arrogant bitch. She throws nonstop tantrums, her rude diatribes never end, and she's endlessly inconsiderate. She still holds a grudge that her friends didn't listen to her and follow her plans for the fantasy fix dates she set up for them and instead met their soul mates instead of going on the blind dates she'd arranged. That's how ...more

Good read. For those of us who started with the world of the Others back in the Fantasy Fix ebook days [fyi: Fantasy Fix was rewritten as One Bite With a Stranger] it's good to finally see Ava fall. Her sarcastic 'Queen Bitch' attitude is alive and well - even though it takes a hit when she is violently turned from human to vampire. Her teeth-grinding suppression of her prejudices and fears of the Others community, even and perhaps especially her dearest friends, makes becoming a vampire herself ...more

I hate Ava. I've always hated her. She's always been a judgmental bitch. In this book we get to see exactly how bitchy she is. Seriously so judgmental. She hates all "others" but certain things happen and she had to get over it. Even though (view spoiler) she wakes up after her attack and she's still terrible. She acts like a 12 year old and like all stupid heroines she runs away without getting all the facts.

They fall in love in 2 days. I don'

I think it's really hard to like a book when I don't really like the main character. I know we're supposed to grow to like her, but I didn't, and the attraction between Dima and Ava is there, but there is no love. It's like they just are attracted to each other and then they're in love, the back story got more attention than their story, which is unusual. Idid like the "others" who were in the background (Missy and Graham, Tess and Rafe, Noah got a guest spot, and even Reggie and Misha from One ...more

I'm really not reading this series in order, I keep missing books and I'm not sure why.

Ava Markham is beautiful, savvy, chic, and more at home with Kate Spade than with the idea of fangs and fur. She can’t get quite used to the fact that some of closest friends have crossed over to the Other side. Then one night she is attacked by a rogue vampire, and her deepest fears are realized when her body begins a dangerous transformation from human to immortal—a change she cannot survive without the help

This book had promise but went nowhere. It had good bones for the characters but really didn't flesh them out. The big bad vampire woman could have been really evil and crazy but unfortunately we didn't get to meet her until way at the end of the book. Way to much time was taken up with ava and dima in bed. Also the conflict with ava becoming a vamp against her will could have been developed more. Also her friend attitudes about her becoming a vamp, they knew she didn't like the others and yet t ...more

She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...

“Committing suicide essentially said to friends and loved ones and the world at large that you were the only thing that mattered, that your problems were hopeless that you deserved to escape from them and to hell with everyone else.
Suicide was nothing more than a way to look in the eye of the people who loved you and say, "My pain is paramount and I want it to end. The pain you will feel when I am gone, and the guilt you will experience at not having been able to stop me, do not matter to me. I am willing for you to suffer for the rest of your life so that I can take the easy way out of mine.”
