"If you like your chick-lit with a bit of bite then this series is for you."

Lil Marchette is the owner of Dead End Dating, the hottest hook-up service in Manhattan. She is an expert in matching up the right people and she usually manages to get herself a little too involved along the way.

This time she is looking for a good Italian girl for Vinnie Balducci and if she doesn't come up with someone good within 72 hours he is going to do what he does best, slay her. Hang on though because Lil always manages to multi task her problems and the other major one is the fact that her assistant Evie isn't acting normal and may actually be possessed by a demon. Of course Lil also has her family to contend with and the usual money problems. Who said life is easy as a vampire?

I love this series and the only disappointment about Just One Bite is the new style cover. After the cool covers on the previous 3 books in the series, Dead End Dating, Dead and Dateless and Your Coffin or Mine? I have to say this one was not as good and of course doesn't fit in if you are collecting the books. Why publishers feel they need to change the cover style in the middle of the series is beyond me.

Lil is an amazing character who comes across as a little dumb but she always manages to get the job done even if it is due to luck more than her being smart. Take Stephanie Plum and give her teeth and then take blood drinking Carrie Bradshaw, mix and you have Lil. This series is delightful, delicious and down right funny. I can't wait for the next book, Sucker for Love, which is due out in May. If you like your chick-lit with a bit of bite then this series is for you.

She puts the after in happily ever after...

**A PNR Reviewer Recommended Read**


Lil Marchette, vampire extraordinaire and owner of Manhattan’s hottest hook-up service, is an expert at matching up the lonely and desperate (and sometimes dead). And thanks to the popular local reality dating show Manhattan’s Most Wanted, Lil has plenty of fresh blood to add to the mix–including the biggest, baddest vampire in the Big Apple. Vinnie Balducci, Brooklyn representative for the Snipers of Otherworldly Beings, is making Lil an offer she can’t refuse: find him the perfect woman or she’s going to be swimming with the fishes.

But Lil may not be the only one taking the plunge. The three hunky demon Prince brothers are poking around Lil’s office–hot on the trail of a rogue spirit trying to escape the land down under (not Australia) by possessing some poor, clueless human soul. Then Lil makes a startling discovery: The oblivious human vessel is none other than her loyal assistant, Evie. Between saving Evie from eternal damnation and saving herself from Vinnie’s lethal ultimatum, Lil is sure to be in for the most hellish ride of her afterlife.
