Date with a Vampire (Tempted #1) by Raine English

The Book
Release Date: 1 October 2013

She gave him her heart, but he wanted her soul…

Melody Johnson dreams of meeting a man as dashing and wonderful as the heroes in the books she reads. Being a realist, she knows that’s highly unlikely. Besides, men always leave her for someone more exciting—until she wins the lottery, that is. Pursued by scores of men happy to help spend her fortune, Melody longs to have her quiet life back. When a network executive offers a reality show, she seizes the opportunity to show the world she’s off the single’s market. Melody leaves her quaint hometown in New York for a sunny island in the Pacific where twenty gorgeous bachelors will vie for her heart and where she can stage a phony engagement. What she never expects, though, is to fall in love with a vampire.

Guystof LeBreque is a four-hundred-year-old Romanian vampire who hates the taste of blood. He’s roamed the earth for centuries, loathing the monster trapped inside him. After his mother’s death at the hands of vampire-hunting assassins, Guystof vows never to turn a woman into a vampire. But when his father gives him an ultimatum to marry a rich woman in sixty days or lose his legacy to his bloodthirsty brother, Guystof battles his conscience. Does he keep the promise he made to himself, or does he keep his brother from power? Guystof resorts to drastic measures. He becomes a bachelor on a hit reality show. What he doesn’t anticipate is losing his heart to the woman whose mortal life he must end.

This book can be read as a stand-alone book.

My Opinion  2.5 STARS
**Copy Provided by Netgalley and Aspendawn Books for an honest review**

This book reminds me very much of another book I have read, but with an added twist to make it seem like another book. This therefore had me looking at how similar the two were than reading the story for the first time. This in turn left me feeling quite disappointed.

As a villain I also felt that Theo played the part well until near the end. Considering his supposed magical powers the man gave up FAR too easily In fact I would say that the last 20% of the book on the whole was unremarkable and dull.

I'm trying hard to think of the book that this reminds me of and I think its Bloodline A Sequel To Bram Stoker's Dracula by Kate Cary, although i'm not 100% positive.

On the whole though if I had not have read a similar book, I would have really enjoyed this book until the disappointing ending.
