Book Review: Dating the Undead ( by Juliet Lyons

Dating the Undead is the first book in the series by Juliet Lyons. When Silver Harris kisses sexy Irish vampire Logan Byrne on New Year's Eve, she knows other humans just won't suffice. Convinced she'll never see him again, she joins the uber-popular vampire dating site, Silver doesn't know is that the site is more dangerous than she could ever imagined, and soon she's in over her head. When Logan returns, sparks fly and attraction sizzles, but they'll have to escape some very real demons if they have any chance of lasting forever.

Dating the Undead is a paranormal romance with a couple fun twists. I liked Silver's spunk, but found the convenience of some of the coincidences that moved the story forward a bit too much. However, the ride was still entertaining. I liked the pairing between Logan and Silver, and their banter. However I found Silver's eagerness to get people in bed a little offputting. I get the idea of a liberated woman, but there is still safety and common sense- which she is lacking much of the time. I liked much of the set up and world building and character interactions. I enjoyed the read and loved some of its parts, but did not love the book as a whole.

Dating the Undead is a fun and exciting romance, with a nice blend of emotional and physical conflicts. It was not amazing, but satisfying for a quick read.
