Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal
Series: Vampire Kisses
Raven lives in “Dullsville,” where nothing ever happens. Until now…
The mansion on top of Benson Hill has been empty and boarded up for years. But a new family has moved in. A family that never ventures out during the day. Who are these creepy people – especially the handsome, dark, and elusive Alexander Sterling? Or rather, what are they? Could the town gossip actually be true? Are they vampires?
Raven, who secretly covets a vampire kiss, both at the risk of her own mortality and Alexander’s loving trust, is dying to uncover the truth.Source: Back of book
The characters in the story were a bit sub-par for my taste. At times I felt the things that Raven would say sounded more like a thirteen year old than a seventeen year old, as well as some of the behavior. What saved the book for me was the story itself. I enjoyed Raven and Alexander’s relationship, even though it took half the book or more for Alexander to even make an appearance.
Favorite Character: Alexander. He was a shy, compassionate guy who was not only hot stuff, but also seemed to be genuinely good. The strong silent type.
