Review: Bite Me if you Can – Lynsay Sands

One minute Leigh is walking home in the early hours of the morning, and the next a vampire is sinking his teeth into her neck. Turns out it was a rogue vampire marked for termination, but it does Leigh little good because the damage’s already been done. She’s become one of THEM.

Lucian Argeneau, hunter of rogue vampires, has been alive for over two thousand years, and there’s very little to excite him anymore. Food has become tasteless, sex is ordinary. Then Leigh drops into his life. Suddenly he finds himself craving coffee…and imagining the sassy brunette stop the black satin sheets on his nice big bed. It’s Lucian’s job now to enlighten Leigh on the inner workings of being immortal…and tutoring her is igniting a fire in him that hasn’t burned in centuries. But until they stop a renegde bloodsucker from destroying the human race, passion will have to wait.

My thoughts:
Another good and light Argeneau vampire novel. I truly like that about this series. And once again, this one can easily be read as a standalone novel. I have only read 3 out of 6, but it works. There is a new couple  in each, and the whole vampire thing is explained to the newbies.  Trust me on this.
In this one a woman, Leigh is out walking and gets attacked. Luckily for her Lucian comes to the rescue as he is hunting down her attacker. Since she is bitten he explains things to her *coughs*, ok he tries, he calls in help, and he is pretty bad at the whole thing. That is what I liked most about him, for someone among the oldest in the world (talking BC here), he is pretty bad at certain things. He is the grumpy grandpa that has given up on sex and food, since why bother at all. What can I say, I liked him, especially in one scene where he buys books about how to talk to woman. Leigh then, well she comes to term with the whole vampire/nano thing pretty fast. But she has been hurt by a man in the past so she is not that keen on falling in love, or lust with anyone.
These books are light, there is some humour, and there is some passion. I just sat down and read it fast, and I do like books like that. You can just relax, sit back and read a cute story about a couple falling in love. Though as always there is some danger in them too, here it’s the guy that bit her and he will be back at the end.
What next, well I would really like to see Marguerite’s book. That would be fun (nr 9 it seems šŸ˜‰
Conclusion:
The whole vampire thing is still interesting, I do like the story of Atlantis and how “vampires” were created. The lightness and humour in the books make them fun reads. Cute and fast.

    These really do sound like fun books. I think I might have to pick one up and check it out. I also enjoy the series that you can read as standalones…of course when I really like one, I normally read all of them, but it's still a nice option.
