Xoe Meyers had a normal life. So she was stuck going to high school, and she only had a few friends to call her own. She liked her normal life. Things were about to change though, because there's a new guy in her small town, and he is anything but normal. Before Xoe can say, "Werewolf," her best friend's life is in peril, and Xoe's world is turned upside-down. Then, of course, there's Jason. Xoe doesn't trust him as far as she can throw him, and given that he's a vampire, she'd have to be able to catch him first.


Xoe's life has been normal aside from the dreams of fire but with the arrival of a new guy in school who can't stop watching her everything is about to change. Raised by her mom she's never known her dad but she's alright with that and doesn't need him since she has two best friends. However, her friends are all over the new guy even though Xoe knows something isn't right with him. 

When a girls movie night turns into inviting the new guy who's attached himself to one of her friend Xoe has to go to protect her friends. When Lucy ends up scratched they find out that she is going to start turning furry with the full moon. At least they have some help by a handsome stranger who's shown up just in time to protect the girls from the rogue wolf, but they will have to work together if they want to get rid of him for good. 

I like Xoe a lot she's a sweetheart who is willing to risk her own life for those of her friends which I think is a great quality to have. She's not perfect she has issues like her dreams that leave her running hot, or that when she get's angry people can get burned. I like Allison and Lucy a lot they are all different but find a common ground to make their friendship work. I wasn't sure about Jason but he seemed to fit in with the group just like Max does when Lucy needs his experience. 

I actually forgot that I had this one on my kindle until I saw the new cover and had to read it. Xoe: or Vampires, and Werewolves, and Demons, Oh My! is a fast paced whirlwind story. Loaded with crazy werewolves, sexy vampire and newbie demons who didn't even know at the time they were. I like the concept while it's not new the author has added her own unique twists creating a captivating story. The characters are easy to connect with I really liked all of them. I truly enjoyed turning the pages diving deeper into Xoe's world, the author has done a lovely job telling an enchanting story. I even have the next two ready to go on my kindle, I'm looking forward to see what is in story for Xoe and her friends. Highly recommend if you like young adult paranormal with just enough romance and action.
