Book review - Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson

Blurb (from Goodreads):

"First Betsy Taylor loses her job, then she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites is that she can't seem to stay dead. And now her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious power-hungry vampire in five centuries."

My review:

When I first heard about this book I thought that chic lit and vampires don't mix. I seriously doubted that I was going to like it. And I wasn't wrong. I didn't like it. I LOVED it!

Betsy represents one of my favorite types of character. She's funny, caring, she has a sharp tongue - which often gets her in really difficult situations - and she says the wrong thing at the very wrong time. And she loves shoes *happy sigh*. Though her love for shoes could become dangerous because of certain people. Otherwise, she's a normal girl, living a normal life. That is before she dies. Then the "normal" part vanishes and her life is filled with not-so-normal events in just one week.

Of course, every girl needs a knight in shinny armor right? Well, Eric Sinclair is that knight for Betsy. He's the typical vampire: hot, dangerous and his sex life is...well...overwhelming for Betsy.

Their relationship reminds me of the interaction between two teenagers: they like each other but they are way too proud to admit it and because of that each of them tries to make the other one go insane. Which is extremely funny. But while Sinclair tries to look like he's a jerk, I think he's a tad intimidated by Betsy and the differences between them and what he feels for fer.

I'm glad I finally read the book. It was a good, funny read and I can't wait to see what happens next in the series.
