Adult Review: Insatiable

Meena hates vampires. They're ruining her life.

First they invade her work. Meena doesn't get the promotion to head writer she's been hoping to achieve. Then they announce the popular daytime drama will be adding a vampire story line to compete with it's major competition.

Second, there's a serial killer on the loose leaving dead female bodies drained of their blood in the various parks of New York City.

Third, Meena goes out to walk her dog, Jack Bauer*, in the middle of the night. She's attacked by numerous bats, but protected by a mysterious man. She almost thinks she dreamed this late night incident.

Fourth, she starts dating this man after meeting him again at a party only to discover he's a vampire prince - ruler of all vampires. She discovers the truth about her boyfriend after a member of Palatine Alaric Wolf comes to warn her and worm the whereabouts of her new boyfriend out of her. She refuses to give up his location, even when she realizes that he IS the prince of darkness.

Lucien, despite his family history, seems to love Meena and want to protect her. However Alaric Wolf can't stand by and let that happen. He's determined to rescue Meena if it's the last thing he does.

When she puts everything together, Meena's seriously annoyed, but with a vampire war looming, which side will she end up upon?

My Thoughts: I LOVED this book.** Meena is sweet with a wicked sense or humor, snarky, and feisty. Plus she has a secret where she can see how people are going to die. Her vampire romance is sexy and sweet. Lucien's one part charming and one part dangerous. Wolf is amusing. Meena's vampire neighbors are hilarious - causing ruckus in the vampire world all in the name of match making. All in all, it's a charming sexy read full of romance, danger, protective men, and one kick butt heroine.

While this IS an adult novel, I think some older teens will naturally gravitate towards this one because it's Meg Cabot and also vampires!

The Cover: Is this supposed to be Meena? The cover, while attractive and eye catching, doesn't fit with the book.

Source: Sent to me by the amazing author! I ADORE her! (Thanks Meg!)
