I cannot begin to describe how much I dislike this book. I was barely able to finish it, and for those of you who know me know that is saying a lot. There was only 1 time I never finished a book. I don't know where to begin...throughout the book Rose continues to proclaim she and her family are not vampires, they just have vampire like qualities so what are they, all we get is immortal. Unless you chop their heads off or if they apparently lose a significant amount of blood.
A LARGE portion of the book is Gabriel trying to get Rose to be his girlfriend and Rose fighting it...basically it goes "Rose I love you," "We can't be together Gabriel, it's not safe." "Why not?," "I can't tell you." Have this happen several times in various formats and you have about 75% of the book, along with Gabriel getting superhuman abilities and a foreign exchange student. Very cliche throughout the whole book.
The characters were blah, Rose was just whiney and weak the whole time. Gabriel is so cliche: football jock who wants more in life but step-daddy won't let him. Sadie could have been more interesting but wasn't developed enough. William again cliche: best friend's brother who crushes on Rose and hates Gabriel...just no....be a little more original I felt like I read these characters before.
Don't get me started kn grammer and misspellings. I thought editors would have gone through this and pointed those thingsout, maybe not. I was more than disappointed in this book. The summary made it sound so interesting, but sadly it wasn't.
I would be willing to read something else from this author but not in this genre. Sadly for the second time, I do not recommend this book and give it a 1.5 out of 5 rating.
