A new guy in town. Rumours of vampires. Dangerous first love. This is where it all begins ... The mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood empty for years. But one day it seems to be occupied, and its mysterious, handsome inhabitant Alexander Sterling becomes the source of much talk around town. Raven, a vampire-obsessed Goth-girl who has always considered herself an outsider in 'Dullsville', is determined to uncover the truth surrounding the secretive Alexander. As she gets to know him, and their spark intensifies, Raven finds herself in some unanticipated situations. Can Alexander make her lifelong dream come true? But love always has its complications - especially when it can only be awakened at nightfall. 'Vampire Kisses: The Beginning' captures the thrill of a most unusual romance.
Well, it’s hard to judge this book. I kept reading and reading and nothing really happened until the very end of the book and then left me hanging and longing for book 2 (which I don’t have and that’s a whole other can of worms that need not be opened just this moment…
). Smart way to end a book. Keep the readers wanting more. So, in that sense it was a little frustrating but on the other hand, the flow of the writing kept me turning page after page and I just couldn’t stop. I read the book in less than a day, which is very unusual for me. I love the character development and I can’t wait for more. I loved it! … and even though the cliff hanger is a big one… it was fantastic! I’d like to give it a 4.5 or even 5 for my personal opinion but I can see where other people may not feel the same so I can’t justify more than a 4. That’s the only reason it’s not getting higher though. I really loved it!
