Marni (wonderwmn999) | 3578 comments The group would like to welcome author Theresa Basile for a Read 4 Review of her book Fanged (Fanged #1). This is the first book in a four part series

Sean Rosenberg is a sixteen-year-old vampire who just wants to complete his junior year without anyone discovering his secret, or killing anyone. (Else.) Blending in isn't as easy as he hoped: two of the three vampires in his group can't stand him, he's barely passing Geometry, his peppy English teacher likes to have surprise lessons outside in the sunlight, and Becky, the pretty cheerleader, has blood that smells just a little too good to him. With the help of Hannah, the group leader and his best friend, he manages to fly under the radar and keep out of trouble.

But when a popular classmate is found dead under mysterious circumstances, the unsteady truce among Sean and his fellow vampires falls apart. As each person reveals a secret that could threaten their privacy - not to mention their lives - Sean tries to control his thirst for human blood, which becomes increasingly difficult when Becky shows sudden interest in him. Will he be able to keep his promise to Hannah and turn over a new leaf, or will the temptation for Becky's blood be too strong to overcome?

And what will they do when Hannah reveals the biggest secret of all?

Fanged is the first book in a four-part series and is for any teenager - alive or undead - who just wants to make it out of high school.

The author will be providing 5 copies through Bookstub . To request, please post your email address and I will email you with the link, directions and your special code. Each code is a one time code and you will be able to download in multiple formats. It is your responsibility to check for the email and download ASAP. It is also your responsibility to contact me immediately if you do not receive the email or have a problem. In exchange for the free book, the author requests an honest review of their book not just on Goodreads, but also on Amazon USA, UK, and any of your blogs or reviewing sites. Once you are finished with your review and have posted it on Goodreads, you are REQUIRED to post your Goodreads link to it on this thread.

Even though this book is being gifted to you please do not share it with anyone. It is unethical, disrespectful and illegal to share books provided to you for reviews.

Further Info from the group, not the author: If you do not complete the e-book within the time given, and you do not post your link on this thread or I do not hear from you stating that you intend to finish and review the book, you will not be allowed to participate in future Read 4 Review events. This is to prevent people from getting complimentary books over and over without fulfilling their obligation.

Do not message me nor the author requesting the book. All info is to be posted here. This is for the ease of the author and the mods and fairness to all. If you do not wish to share your email publicly, please do not request.

If there are any other authors looking to do this with our group, please message me. You MUST be willing to provide copies, free of charge, to the reviewers. Here’s the post on what is needed when requesting:

REVIEWERS: PLEASE read the topic titled "Reviewers." All the rules are listed under there. We will not allow any excuses of "I didn't know" because the rules are listed and if you have any questions you can always message me.

I feel your pain! I'm going to check with the author for regular files. That's how we normally work this and the preferred way just because of things like this.

Marni (wonderwmn999) | 3578 comments UPDATE: The author just tried herself and is encountering the same issues that you all are. She will contact her publisher in the morning and see what can be done to get the issues straightened out. As soon as I here back from her, I will post another update. Thank you all for your patience.

E.B. Hood (melabeth) | 34 comments I had called her publisher. They fixed it for me, they should have fixed it across the board. Hope they have it sorted in the am, but I did get my copy no reason to re-send anything to me.

message 13: by Cheryl (new)

Cheryl Duval I had the same issue. I contacted customer service and they had tech support give me a new code and it worked. I have downloaded the book and it seems to work fine. What a pain in the neck this was, I have never had this much trouble downloading a book. Glad I got it fixed!
