Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side by Beth Fantaskey

The undead can really screw up your senior year …

Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction.

I’m a little hesitant to admit how much I enjoyed this book. But I’ve got to admit it – this book drew me in and I didn’t want to stop listening to it.

Loved the humor! One of my favorite things were the letters Lucius wrote to his uncle with his views on life in America. Think arrogant Romanian blood drinking vampire who comes to live with a Vegan family. Hilarious!

Is this book for you? Hard to say. Some of my friends love it and others hated it. If the description sound appealing and you don’t have issues with the content mentioned below I would recommend you overlook the cheesy book title & cover and give Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side a try. Although I think this book was originally written as a stand along and wraps up nicely Beth Fantaskey has written a sequel which will come out in 2011.

Content: This book pushes my personal limits. There is language throughout (no F word) and although there is no sex but has plenty of innuendo.
