"It would be pretty impossible to hide something like fangs while in the middle of kissing a guy."

What would you do if you fell in love with a rock star?  Aurora does just that when she stumbles upon Trev at a local bar's open mic night.  He's cute and fun, but when she can't get him out of her mind, she knows there is more to be worried about.  Because Aurora isn't just any girl - she's a vampire.  And vampires don't mix well with mortals.  Trev is enchanted with Aurora and how well they seem to be connecting.  But there is something that keeps holding her back.  Can their new-found love stand the future they have unwittingly brought upon themselves?

My Opinion: This was an interesting twist on the whole vampire-falls-in-love-with-a-mortal idea since the girl is the vampire and the guy is the mortal.  You don't see that much and it was interesting.  Another interesting stylistic choice was the use of a double first-person narration.  Although sometimes confusing about who was talking, it was unique.  I found the story to be a bit slow and focused more on the band and too many details to really get into the meat of the romance, it was a good book.  Trev is a bit twitterpated and is very accepting  of the bizarre world he is thrust into.  Aurora is a bit more complex, though her emotions are not deeply grounded in conflict.  It was an interesting but light read.

I was given a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and opinion are 100% my own.
