"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
