Two sisters—as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Coven is to die for. But for the other, getting out could be lethal...

When Sunny McDonald gets dragged to Club Fang by her twin sister Rayne, she doesn't expect to find anything besides a bunch of Goth kids playing at being vampires. But when some guy mistakes Sunny for her dark-side-loving sister and bites her on the neck, she finds out that his fangs are real—and deadly. 

Now, Sunny has less than a week to figure out how to reverse the bite, or else she's going to end up as the perpetually undead. And not only will she be a vampire, she'll also be bonded to Magnus—the bloodsucker who bit her—forever. And forever is a really long time...

Sunny’s sister has convinced her to join her at a goth club little did Sunny know that the guy flirting with her really was a vampire. Or that his bite would start the transformation into becoming a vampire was meant for her sister. Not only does Sunny have to worry about becoming a but there is also a vampire slayer out there who could be after her. At least Bertha the slayer has seen better days so she should be able to avoid her.

The only chance to change Sunny back into a human is to drink from the holy grail which happens to be in England. While Sunny may not be on the up when it comes to vampire her twin sister is having a blog all about it. At school at last Sunny has drawn the attention her long time crush he even asks her to prom. Now I only they can find the cup and get back to town before Prom.

I like Sunny a lot while more than I do her twin sister, but maybe that’s because her sister doesn’t have a big role in this book. I like that even though Sunny is tossed into the supernatural world she handles it well accepting her fate and dashing off with a strange vampire to stop the transition. I like Magnus when we learned the truth behind how long he’s waited for a blood mate my heart went out to him. I also like the way things worked out for both of them.

I’ve had Boys that Bite on my kindle for so long I forgot that it was even on it. I’ve been craving a YA vampire novel so I decided to give it a shot and wasn’t disappointed. While the vampire concept isn’t original the author has added her own unique spin creating a captivating paranormal romance. I really loved the characters I found Sunny easy to connect with after all she’s just like I was back in the day as a teen. This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author so I knew I would love her writing style which I did. I love all the pop culture references scattered throughout the book. A fast paced action packed whirlwind adventure that I found hard to put down. I enjoyed every moment of Boys that Bite it’s a beautifully written story. I look forward to reading the rest of the series the next one is on my kindle.
