Synopsis (Goodreads):
True love: good from the first bite . . .

Etienne Argeneau's three hundred years of bachelorhood were at an end. Either that, or he'd be forever alone. He could turn only one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind created a life mate. If he turned this stranger . . . But what choice did he have? He had to help Rachel Garrett. The beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save hers, he would make her immortal.

. . . to the last

Rachel Garrett awoke surprised. All she'd wanted was to get off the night shift in the morgue; now here she was staggering to her feet naked and in a strange place. But everything would be all right. She'd just make like a bat out of hell. Then she saw the man of her dreams emerging from his . . . coffin? And the look in his bright silver eyes said they'd be spending a lot of time together. She just hoped he tasted as good as he looked.
Thoughts on Love Bites: There were things I enjoyed about this book and things that didn't work quite as well for me. I thought Rachel's stubborn insistence that she as dreaming was hilarious. The fact that the Argeneaus didn't kill Pudge outright once he started trying to kill Etienne boggles me. For all their good natures, the moment someone tried to put the whammy on one of their own, it shocked me that they allowed it.

Plus, Pudge was annoying. Well, right up to the end when he just became amusing. Poor guy.

For me, this was an amusing, quick read. Etienne and Rachel had some hurdles to overcome in their relationship -- mostly because their relationship started with neither of them knowing much of anything about one another. Etienne probbbbbably needs to work on his communication a bit, but I can see why he wouldn't be the best with words since his entire family can just plop themselves down and read minds. Rachel was surprisingly accepting about the whole thing. Well, once she stopped thinking it was a dream, that is.

Fun, light hearted, and sometimes ridiculous. There are days when that's exactly what you need in a book. *nods*

  1. I read the first book in this series and found it really cute. That was ages ago and I have no idea why I have not read more. Your review reminded me of this series. But I'm not sure I'm looking forward to meeting Pudge though lol. Thanks for the review :)

    1. The series is very light. Things happen but nothing you'll want to tear your hair out over. It's a fun little diversion.
