Boys That Bite by Mari Mancusi

Title: Boys That Bite

Author: Mari Mancusi

Published: Berkley Jam Books, 2006

Pages: 262

Series: "Book 1, Blood Coven"

Snippet: ""Holy fu-" he starts then catches himself."Yes,this tithe will be most pleasing to her Goodness." Me and Magnus exchange amused glances."

Summary: Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite. 

Review: Boys That Bite is a very cliche novel but it's actually really interesting.  It's pretty obvious what is going to happen all throughout the novel.  There were a couple of surprises to do with some of the characters but nothing that over the top.

At first glance, I thought the book would take a while to get through but I found that as I was reading it the pages seemed to just fly by.  It  didn't take me long to read at all.

One thing I liked about Boys That Bite was that it was just a lot of fun.  It's one of those books that you'd pick up if you felt like reading something light, breezy and fast.  It held my interest right throughout.

I loved Boys That Bite and I would be really interested to know more about Rayne, and Sunny and Magnus for that matter.  So next time I see the next book in the series I'm pretty sure I'm going to read it.

If you like vampires, or you're not tired of them yet.  Then Boys That Bite is a good vampire book filled with cheesy lines and cliche happenings.

  1. Oh my gosh, I absolutely loved this book. It was so funny and so much fun to read. Great review, I might have to reread it now. And I'm so glad you liked it.

  2. I much prefer the other two books in the series. This one was my least favorite but like you said, still a fun read.
