Bite Me If You Can by Lynsay Sands
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book did not follow the typical Argeneau book formula. This one throws you right into the vampire world without the typical build-up. With the transition decision made in the first chapter of the book, the only thing left to deal with is Lucian being a jerk.
Leigh was attacked on the way home and turned into a vampire. Lucian winds up hunting down the rogue vampires that did it, but spares her life because she hasn't been turned into one of them yet. While complaining every step of the way, Lucian winds up taking care of Leigh. She gets a gold star for her amazing acceptance of her new world. This is balanced out somewhat by her absolute rejection of getting into a relationship, no matter what people say about her status as Lucian's mate.
These two are awesomely matched, but we have to wait a LONG time in this book to get rewarded by some smutty goodness. This makes me sound like a horrible person, but I wish the romance was spread out throughout the book, rather than in a rush at the end. I found myself constantly checking the % remaining, concerned that there was not enough time to resolve both the rogue issue and the romance. There was still resolution, but it felt just as rushed as the romance. I was still happy that these opposites found a way to kick butt and end up together, but it was a close thing.
