Bite Me! is the debut book by Melissa Francis. From the back cover.~
AJ Ashe isn’t your typical seventeen-year-old vampire-as if there is such a thing! She’s stuck in the middle of a huge fight between her two BFFs. Her ex-boyfriend-whom she’s still totally in love with, by the way-is now her stepbrother. A former classmate-who, um, she may or may not have turned into a vampire-is stalking her. And now, apparently, the fate of humankind lies in her little undead hands. What ever happened to the good old days, when all a vampire girl had to worry about was the occasional zit and hiding her taste for blood?
I loved Bite Me!. It is a fun paranormal YA novel. You totally feel sorry for both AJ and Ryan, who have to break up when their parents decide to get married. AJ not only has to deal with her ex-boyfriend being her new step-brother, but she must also deal with the fact that her former classmate, Noah, was found dead after they had been making out at a party. While Ryan is dating Lindsay, a girl that AJ really has never like. She also, suddenly seems to be having the worst luck of anyone on the face of the planet. Plus, she isn’t really sure what is going on with her two best friends, who have her stuck in the middle of some huge fight.
I think AJ is a total kick-butt heroine and loved that she is such a strong character. She has more thrown at her than any normal seventeen-year-old girl should have to deal with, mortal or vampire. Melissa Francis gives the reader a real treat with Bite Me!, and I can’t wait to read more of her books in the future. Love Sucks! Is the next book in this series, which will be release in Spring of 2010.
***Disclaimer*** I bought this book myself.
