After losing both her parents before age 17, aspiring designer Caitlin Holte doesn’t feel like moving, starting a new school, staying with her estranged aunt, or…living at all really. But after a terrifying encounter with a supernatural force, she learns that the world is a lot more complicated than she thought. Also, her hot bad-boy neighbor, Adrian (who might have just saved her life) is actually a half-demon vampire. Suddenly Caitlin is stuck with a vampire bodyguard determined to protect her. And Adrian has decided the best way to do that is for the two of them to pretend to be dating. Trouble is, Caitlin is starting to fall in love for real, while Adrian can never love a human. And then there’s the supernatural threat that flung them together in the first place—Adrian’s demonic dad!
This cover isn't the real cover, just a place holder. This book sounds so freaking incredible! I feel like this is something that can take over my life after the Lux series ends. They have something in common: snarky, hot, supernatural boys. The quotes for this book are so incredibly snarky and funny. Temple West posted some on GoodReads, and here are some of my favourites:
“I scoffed. “Why would I fall in love with you? You’re just a hot, closet-nerd vampire with a bazillion dollars and a Harley. There’s absolutely nothing attractive about you.”
“I’m repulsive, I know.”

“You’re cute when you do that,” he called to me.
“When I do what?”
“Turn in a circle like that. It’s kind of penguin-y.”
“Great,” I called back. “Just what every girl dreams of being told by their inhumanly attractive, immortal vampire protector: they look kind of ‘penguin-y.”

“So you’re a vampire, eh?”
“’Eh’?” he asked.
“I’ve decided to turn Canadian.”
“I thought you were dead.”
“They don’t have Canadians in heaven?”
“I’ve never met any.”

“Just for the record, saying ‘The surprise hasn’t started yet’ while pulling something out of your pants pocket is super creepy.”
“Yeah,” I heard him say, “I regretted it immediately, but it was too late to switch to something else.”
That Canadian quote cracks me up. It really does. Mostly because I'm Canadian.

Also, Temple West is also one of my new favourite people. She's hilarious and super cool and <3 <3 (Besides Karou, she's my favourite blue-haired lady)

Happy Reading!
