Review: Night Sighs by Emma Meade

Synopsis (Goodreads):
Meet Alex & Tristan, modern star-crossed lovers of the supernatural variety.

Alex is running-on-empty one year on from the death of her fiancé, and the only thing that keeps her going is her romance with the young vampire Tristan. Tristan meanwhile has a serious obsession with Bruce Springsteen and is battling a can't-live-without-you sort of love for Alex. He's trying to persuade her to come over to the dark side but so far she's resisting his efforts.

So come and sing along to Tristan's band, The Dead Beats, the hottest group in London right now and walk with Alex as she teeters between this life and the next.

Because when you're around Tristan, you'll see how much fun it is to be alive when you're dead....
My Thoughts: Comprised of 5 short stories revolving around Tristan, rock star and vampire, and Alex, his human-turned-vampire love. Each story is surprisingly complex and shows the depth of their emotions for one another. The only story that I didn't really see as progressing their overall arc was the one where they went to Egypt. I still found it enjoyable, I just didn't get the same vibe off of it as the others. I loved Tristan's reaction when Alex is attacked and the realization that he could have so lost her so quickly.

A very fast read, it ends up being quite satisfying while leaving you wanting to know more about these two star-crossed lovers.
