Above average twist on the usual vampire romance story. I liked the character of Tucker and thought he ‘read’ true to life as a regular guy/cowboy trying to make sense of all the vampire stuff being thrown at him. The Lizzie character was very one-dimensional and I didn’t much like her or care whether she became a vampire or whatever. There were many great peripheral characters that could have been fleshed out and really added to the story. The dog was a hoot! Overall, not bad and there were some really good bits mixed in with alot of jibber jabber and running around. This is the first in a series and probably the only one of them I will read. I was given a copy of the book-the review is my own opinion.
