Vamps and the City

Kerrelyn Sparks
Who says a vamp can't have it all? Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super–sexy and live contestant named Austin... But Darcy doesn't know the worst of it. Austin Erickson is actually a vampire slayer! And he's got his eye on the show's leggy blond director. Only problem is, he's never wanted any woman—living or dead—as badly. But if he wins her heart, will he lose his soul? And if it means an eternity of hot, passionate loving with Darcy, does that really matter anyway?

<p><br />I actually don't have much to say about this one other than it was a fun, romp of a read. I liked the first book of this series better, possibly because less breezy.&nbsp;<br /><br />I rooted for all the good guy characters. And it was good to see the harem from the first book get a good resolution in this one.<br /><br />The ending seemed kind of forced. As fun as the book was, everything was pretty predictable and in some instances too lighthearted or humorous. In other instances, the humor was spot on for me.<br /><br />If I dwell on the ending too long, I'll start taking stars off my rating because was very much just too glib, almost&nbsp;<em>deus ex machina</em>&nbsp;</p>

<p><strong>Ratings scale used in absence of a booklikes suggested rating scale:</strong><br /><br />★★★★★ = All Time Favorite&nbsp;<br />★★★★&frac12; = Extraordinary Book. Really Loved It.<br />★★★★☆ = Loved It.<br />★★★&frac12;☆ = Really Liked.<br />★★★☆☆ = Liked.<br />★★&frac12;☆☆ = Liked parts; parts only okay. Would read more by author.<br />★★☆☆☆ = Average. &nbsp; Okay.&nbsp;<br />★&frac12;☆☆☆ = Disliked or <em>meh?</em> but kept reading in hopes would improve.<br />★☆☆☆☆ = Loathed It. Possibly DNF and a torturous read.<br />&frac12;☆☆☆☆ = So vile was a DNF or should have been. Cannot imagine anyone liking. &nbsp;(Might also be just an "uploaded" word spew or collection that should not be dignified by calling itself a "published book." If author is going batshit crazy in the blogosphere over reviews -- I now know why they are getting bad reviews. &nbsp;Or maybe author should take remedial classes for language written in until basic concepts like using sentences sink in. Is author even old enough to sign a publishing contract or do they need a legal guardian to sign for them?)</p>
