Review @saradobie - Bite Somebody by Sara Dobie Bauer (Bite Somebody #1)

Bite Somebody
Bite Somebody #1
by Sara Dobie Bauer

Goodreads blurb:  “Do you want to be perfect?”

That’s what Danny asked Celia the night he turned her into a vampire. Three months have passed since, and immortality didn’t transform her into the glamorous, sexy vamp she was expecting, but left her awkward, lonely, and working at a Florida gas station. On top of that, she’s a giant screw-up of an immortal, because the only blood she consumes is from illegally obtained hospital blood bags.

What she needs to do—according to her moody vampire friend Imogene—is just … bite somebody. But Celia wants her first bite to be special, and she has yet to meet Mr. Right Bite. Then, Ian moves in next door. His scent creeps through her kitchen wall and makes her nose tingle, but insecure Celia can’t bring herself to meet the guy face-to-face.

When she finally gets a look at Ian’s cyclist physique, curly black hair, and sun-kissed skin, other parts of Celia tingle, as well. Could he be the first bite she’s been waiting for to complete her vampire transformation? His kisses certainly have a way of making her fangs throb.

Just when Celia starts to believe Ian may be the fairy tale ending she always wanted, her jerk of a creator returns to town, which spells nothing but trouble for everyone involved.

“Witty banter and hot sexy-times make BITE SOMEBODY sparkle in all the right ways.”
—Beth Cato, author of The Clockwork Dagger series

“BITE SOMEBODY is the Pretty in Pink of vampire stories; fun, self-consciously retro, and not afraid to be goofy. Sara Dobie Bauer knows how to keep a reader smiling.”
—Christopher Buehlman, author of Those Across the River

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  I bought this book because I wanted to start the series from the beginning, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is cartoonish, but I really like it!

This is the first book in the series, and my first time reading Sara’s work!  This book is for adults only due to the murder, mayhem, and steamy content.

Wow, I wasn’t expecting to love this book like I do!  It was perfect with its “There’s Something About Mary” humor vampire style where everything that can go wrong does but making you laugh along the way.  This is how Celia and Ian’s relationship is.  I love all the 80s and 90s movie references too!  There is definitely some mystery with the deaths, but I don’t want to give anything away.  It was an awesome ending, but also left you an ending that makes you want to read the next book even more!

Sara does a fantastic job pulling you into Celia’s life and her story!  I loved every page and couldn’t put it down!

I highly recommend this book to vampire fans who want a humorous story about an awkward new vampire!  Off to read book 2!!!  I can’t wait!

Interested in reading???
