Review of Don't Bite the Bridesmaid by Tiffany Allee

Blurb: Alice Shepard needs one thing: a date for her sister's wedding. And not just any date. A hunk who will make her fiancĂ© rue the day he left her for her best friend. Her drop-dead gorgeous neighbor fits the bill—even if he is a bit quirky and never comes out during the day—and Alice has downed just enough appletinis to ask him. But she makes it quite clear that there will be no funny business.

Spending a week on a cruise ship full of humans while sleeping close to his sexy next-door neighbor sounds like a helluva bad idea to vampire Noah Thorpe. But his friends need time to get him out of a shotgun wedding—a vampire bonding that will tie his fate to a female vampire he's never met. And Alice's offer comes at just the right time.

What could possibly go wrong?

Review: You know, it has to be said. Entangled Publishing has really been releasing some entertaining reads with beautiful covers lately. Perhaps they always have, but I'm just paying more attention to them recently. Either way, I found this book through a post with the publisher offering ARCs for honest reviews. Seeing the cover and reading the blurb, I thought, "well why the heck not?"

I won't go into too much detail about the contents of the book, but I'll just say it's not your typical vampire read. It easily grabbed my attention from the start and I actually thought this was a light, quick read. There's not a bad guy per se unless you count an ass of an ex, but the storyline and characters are fairly straightforward and to the point.

For me, this was a lighthearted read with nice doses of humor. There were a few laugh out loud moments. Especially the shampoo bottle scene. That part actually tickled me because I could imagine I might react similarly if the same had happened to me. 

Okay, I have to share that little snippet. 

Excerpt: " His brows drew together with worry. "Are you sure you're okay?"

Shampoo-drinker. Shampoo-drinker. Shampoo-drinker. "I'm fine. I..." Saw you drinking shampoo. Am now wondering if you're total crazypants. Think that drinking shampoo has to be really bad for you. "I'm just a little tired. It's been a while since I played volleyball." "

All in all, I thought this was a quick, cute read with quirky characters. I'm interested to read more about some of Noah and Alice's family in the books to come.
