BOOK REVIEW: Vampire Crush

Title: Vampire Crush
Author: A.M. Robinson


Normal house, normal family, normal school. My looks are average, I don't have any superpowers, no one's showing up to tell me I'm a princess—you get the picture. But when my junior year started, something not normal happened. There were new kids at school... new kids with a wardrobe straight out of a 19th-century romance novel, and an inexplicable desire to stay at school until sundown.And on top of that, James Hallowell showed up. James, who stole my sandwiches in fourth grade and teased me mercilessly through middle school. James, who now seems to have the power to make my heart race any time he comes near. But something weird is going on. Because James rarely goes out during the day. And he seems stronger than your typical guy. And he knows the new kids, all of whom seem to be harboring some kind of deep secret...


I liked this book a lot. And I am in love with James. He's just so deliciously cute and sexy. And I liked the memories of him and Sophie's childhood. But most of all I liked the way they reacted to each other in the present. They were so sweet! And I kind of was a bit envious and jealous. I wanted James for myself. Oh well, never mind. I'm too old for him anyway. So, at least he can be with Sophie.
Violet was also a good character and very sweet. Although a bit crazy.
Marisabel was just weird. I couldn't really get myself to either like her nor dislike her. Though I didn't really mind her in the end.
Neville was fine. Kind of nice actually. But He also sort of intimidated me.
Vlad was just creepy and totally crazy. Hateful from the start to the end. And a very nasty villain. And, seriously? Vlad??? The name surely didn't give him away. *roll eyes*
The ending sort of disappointed me a little. I expected something more.... emotional? Heated? Romantic? It wasn't bad, but their kiss in the end wasn't romantic or passionate or sweetly incredible as I expected. Was just awkward and weird. Not very emotional and moving. On the other hand, the kissing scene in the pantry.... well.. that was what I really like. And I wanted more of those scenes in this book. Especially if this is a stand alone and not a first of a series.
All in all, a good book.

***3.75 stars***
