Review: Friday Night Bites

Reviewed by Jen
 
For crying out loud. Merit and Ethan: you must get your act together - immediately. There is only so much repressed sexual tension I can take. (I know I'm getting ahead of myself, but really, it had to be said.)

This book picks up just a few short weeks after the events of Some Girls Bite left off. Merit is preparing to move out of her home with roommate Mallory, into Cadogen House, to live with her fellow vamps. She is sort-of dating Morgan, the new master of the rival house. And she is still trying to learn how to harness her inner vampire to be the best Sentinel she can be.

But whether she is ready or not, Ethan needs her help to tamp down on the latest threat to the House. More specifically, he needs her social connections to give him entrance to the upper echelons of Chicago society. The investigation draws her back into the folds of her estranged family, a place she never wanted to be.

While there is plenty going on in the story, surrounding raves, shifters, and even the reemergence of Celina... the real draw in the book is Merit's continuing evolution and her changing relationships. Over the course of the book, there are major changes to her relationship with Mallory, Morgan, Ethan... and even within herself. The stuff with Mallory is especially poignant, though (honestly) a bit unwelcome. And Ethan. Sweet gravy, these two are just killing me with this dance they are doing.

I can't wait to see how Merit continues to develop and what is ahead with the shifters. 4 1/2 stars.

I have been waiting to read this series, sounds like it's frustrating to have to wait for the next books to come out. But this one sounds like good character building. I can't wait to start the series, nice review.
