Summary

True love: good from the first bite….

Etienne Argeneau’s 300 years of bachelorhood were at an end. Either that, or he’d be forever alone. He could only turn one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind created a life mate. If he turned this stranger…. But what choice did he have? He had to help Rachel Garrett. The beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save hers, he would make her immortal.

To the last....

Rachel Garrett awoke surprised. All she’d wanted was to get off the night shift in the morgue; now here she was staggering to her feet naked and in a strange place. But everything would be alright. She’d just make like a bat out of.... Then she saw the man of her dreams emerging from his…coffin? And the look in his bright silver eyes said they’d be spending a lot of time together. She just hoped he tasted as good as he looked.

Good if not a little annoying at times

I found this to be a good book although the parts where she goes back and forth thinking she's in a dream or that people are 'mad' or 'insane' get a little tedious because after being provided with irrefutable evidence of Vampyres she still insists on playing dumb. Aside from this the storyline is quite good and gives a nice peak into the other Argeneau family members which gives a good incentive to read the others in the series.

brilliant!

I have all the books in this series and now I'm downloading the audio versions. I love the series, fantastic story lines with a dash of humour. the narrator of this story is excellent. For me the narrator makes or breaks the book, (I have a couple of books I can't listen to because of the voice. not any of this series!!!). The narration spot on!! I highly recommend all the books in the series.

Great for a holiday read

It's part of a great vampire series, about a family who are just like any normal one, they love, squabble, get involved in each other's lives and generally interfere... I'm so pleased to have discovered these books, this is the second that ive read. I'm glad that I downloaded it for our holiday, as I've listened to it non stop! The books are laugh out loud funny. I can't wait to read the next one!

Wasn't disappointed!

I bought this book after seeing it on a couple of "funny/LOL vampire romance book" suggestion lists on Amazon. Although I didn't find this LOL, I did find it amusing at times, but more than that, it was a sweet (and at times hot (definatly an adult story), but not smutty) romance story. Pleasent suprise, no profanity, and very minimal violence. I appreciated the "scientific" take on the this author's version of what vampires are. It was a very enjoyable story and I look forward to continuing the series (although unfortunatly it doesn't appear book 2 is avail. on audio).
My one and only critcism would be I felt the narrator used a rather rushed pace, however the narrator did do a good job; she has a very pleasent voice, and I appreciated the different "charater" voices she did.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!

This is the first book I have been introduced to, in this series and I cannot wait to listen to all of the remaining books! I loved the writing style and the characters.

This is NOT Book 1!

First of all this is a great fun read. I've never been into romances before but this had enough excitement, adventure and danger to keep my attention. MOST IMPORTANT THING: you need to know is THIS IS BOOK TWO! Check the Author's website. Book one is actually A Quick Bite. I was confused at first, looking like everyone for book two, but she explaines it on her website. I don't know why audible has not corrected it.

Love this series!

So clever to introduce the family of characters in the first two books and then feature each one in the series.

Loved Angela Dawe's narration. I thought she did an excellent job of bringing all the characters to life. Which they are. They are not dead. They have nanos. (I love this premise!)

Thoroughly Enjoyed it

Made for a good listen. Angela Dawe did a fantastic job. My only regret is that she isn't reading the other books. Kept my interest through the entire book. I laughed, I cryed a little to much sex for my taste but other than that I cant wait to read the next one.

Fun Quick Read

I liked it much better than the first book. The characters were much more fleshed out in this one. Happy to be rid of the breathy narrator too.

double everything

What would have made Love Bites better?

Less repetition? She sees a gorgeous corpse (male) on her morgue table suddenly come back to life. She faints.

She sees a gorgeous corpse (male) on her morgue table suddenly come back to life. She faints. And no, I am not repeating myself - it's the second meeting ))))

She comes to herself in a strange place, naked, grabs a sheet and goes exploring the house. She sees the same attractive "corpse", faints and he carries her back to her bedroom.

She comes to herself in a strange place, naked, grabs a sheet and goes exploring the house. She sees the same attractive "corpse", faints and he carries her back to her bedroom. Honest, I am not repeating myself - it's the second meeting in Etienne's house.

Most of the dialogues are repeated several times taking pages and pages. I really do not feel like listening to the heroine's boring whining for hour after hour.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lynsay Sands again?

No.

What three words best describe Angela Dawe’s voice?

Irritating hard staccato.

What character would you cut from Love Bites?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

One of the most unimaginative and boring romance novels I've seen (heard).

cute book 1

think it is a fun series but a lusty book. I liked the narrator after I got use to listening to her. After listening to 8 books in a series with 1 narrator you have to adjust to a different narrator. I will have a better idea after listening to the next book! Stay tuned!!

This was a disappointment. I expected more

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

So-so.

Has Love Bites turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I've read many other similar books and enjoyed them more than this one

What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

The performance was very upbeat and kept me reading. Her narration improved the book in my opinion.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

I hate writing reviews

Love the story, and for the most part the narrator. I appreciate that she didn't try to drop her voice to a ridiculous level for men. I did wish that the tone she gave Eitenne didn't make him sound like drool person.
