BITE SOMEBODY ELSE is the sequel to Sara Dobie Bauer's book
SOMEBODY. This book has what I love most in a paranormal
romance -- humor, friendship, and super sexy times. Imogene
is a vampire with rock star attitude with a soft spot for
her buddies, and future parents, Celia and Ian. Although
Celia is a vampire and Ian is a human, this story is no
TWILIGHT. Imogene's world is rocked when the enigmatic
vampire hottie Lord Christopher Cuthbert III arrives on the
scene to monitor Celia's unusual pregnancy. This is a story
about the incredibly inconvenient arrival of love, with
plenty of goofy goings-on, psycho evil vampire exes, wacky
characters, and death and destruction. Sara Dobie Bauer
gives enough explanation so that readers like me, who
haven't read the previous book, won't be lost.
Imogene is a flawed character and a delightfully
foul-mouthed feminist vampire. This is not your average
romance heroine. Imogene knows who she is, what and who is
important to her and is not easily manipulated. Nicholas
bewitches and befuddles Imogene, but she is determined to
work with him for the sake of her beloved Ian and Celia. The
bulk of this book is about Imogene and Nicholas struggling
with their mutual attraction and trying to figure out how a
romantic relationship between them would work. Although
there is vampire relationship drama, Sara Dobie Bauer
injects enough humor and fab characters to lighten the mood.
One thing I really like about Imogene is how she seems to
value friendship and self-respect more than romance. By the
time the inevitable supernatural battle royale takes place,
Imogene and her crew are on the same page and trading barbs
and blows with the bad guys.
BITE SOMEBODY ELSE is snarky and sexy and packed with good
times, good friends, and good slayings. Under all the humor
and vampire cutthroat politics, is a story with heart, and a
romance to be emotionally invested in. I look forward to
Sara Dobie Bauer's next paranormal romance, and to going
back and reading about how Ian and Celia first got together.
Imogene helped her newbie vampire friend Celia hook up with
an adorable human, but now Celia has dropped an atomic bomb
of surprise: she has a possibly blood-sucking baby on the
way. Imogene is not pleased, especially when a mysterious,
ancient, and annoyingly gorgeous vampire historian shows up
to monitor Celia's unprecedented pregnancy.
Lord Nicholas Christopher Cuthbert III is everything Imogene
hates: posh, mannerly, and totally uninterested in her.
Plus, she thinks he's hiding something. So what if he smells
like a fresh garden and looks like a rich boarding school
kid just begging to be debauched? Imogene has self-control.
As Celia's pregnancy progresses at a freakishly fast pace,
Imogene and Nicholas play an ever-escalating game of will
they or won't they, until his sexy maker shows up on Admiral
Key, forcing Nicholas to reveal his true intentions toward
Celia's soon-to-arrive infant.
I have yet to read the first book, as this the first I heard of it, yet it sound like it has every aspects I look for in my books. Humor, suspense, great looking men and my favorite, a Sassy Female Vampire who dosen't it appears to take anyone's CRAP. Wilma Salas (Wilma Salas 6:34am August 7, 2017)
