Author: Beth Fantaskey
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.
Review: I really liked this book! It was different than most vampire love story books I have read. That is a good thing! At first, before I read the book, I thought this would be a cute romance book. When I read it, I was a little disappointed since Lucius and Jessica didn't get together throughout the book (not saying they didn't ever get together..). This book made me laugh and almost cry. I felt Jessica's pain and joy.
I really liked Jessica's character. She is wise, unlike other girls, such as her friend Mindy. Jessica didn't drool over Lucius and want to be his girlfriend from the beginning. He was a stranger who just came and told her that she was his long lost fiance. She had to get to know him more before she showed interest in him.
I thought Jessica and Lucius's romance was kinda cute, but also a but annoying. If Lucius really loves her then he should have shown it. He should have treated her better.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this book. It wasn't the best romance but it was still a really good story. I think author Beth Fantaskey did a great job! I want to read her other book, Jekel Loves Hyde. I recommend reading this book if you like any kind of paranormal/ya books. This book was really good. I gave it four coffee cups.
