Dracula In Love by Karen Essex

Postby Divia » Sun August 8th, 2010, 8:54 pm

I was wondering if anyone has read this book? It comes out on Tuesday but it was offered by Vine a few weeks ago.

I have mixed feelings about it. Now, granted, I started reading it while I was in Italy and a lot of stuff went down while I was there so my head wasn't focused as it should be. However, I found the story just OK. I wasn't memorized by it. It wasn't an exciting page turner. It was a decent read, but I'm sure it others will enjoy it because of the sex.

What say you?

I was going to try this, but then I looked at the Vine reviews (two in particular) and those convinced me this was not the book for me.

my review hasn't gone up yet, but it seems that most people say the samething. if you are OK with the sex then it should be a fine read, not great but doable. However, if you dislike that stuff in your books then you won't like it.
