Blurb From Goodreads

Betsy Taylor, Queen of the undead, has snagged a dream job in a shoe store (just like a normal person!). But when vampires start getting killed off, Betsy enlists the help of the sexy vampire Sinclair. Now she's really treading dangerous ground-but this time in brand-new high heels.

My Review

The second book in a series and we find Betsy pretty much as we left her in the first book. Selfish, self involved, shoe obsessed and foul mouthed. She is still quite naive bordering on dumb and has a lot of pent up rage (really lust and even love) for Sinclair.

Betsy wants to get back to normal and that means paying bills and getting a job, with her rich friend taking over her big bills and Sinclair demanding she takes his side Betsy is more determined to get a job and do things her way.

Betsy drives me mad, her character is very unlikeable, some of it your reading and thinking oh my God this is just silly yet I am compelled to read and already starting the 3rd installment. I don't believe the author meant for it to be taken seriously, it is filled with silliness and nonsense but as much as it annoys me I also enjoy it (total contradiction I know).

Whilst this is the second in a series you don't have to have read the first one to read this as the first book is summed up along the way with explanations and condensed versions of the first book so you can follow it fine. Easy to read as before, enjoyable if it is irritable so a 3/5 for me.
