Finally, the story I’ve been waiting for. After two books of kick ass action and romantic tension, Live And Let Bite, the 3rd book in the Love At First Bite series by Declan Finn, gets deeper into the relationship or rather the lack there of between Marco and Amanda. There is also an unexpected answer to whether Vampires can change the state of their soul.
A centuries old vampire is after Marco. Amanda, Merle and the rest of the vampire hunting crew must figure out how to stop her before she kills them all.
MY FAVORITE PARTS
This book is full of scenes I love and it’s hard to narrow it down, but I’ll try.
- The prologue. This is the start of what I’ve been waiting for from Marco for two books. The hook at the end is magnificent. Finally, a hook that doesn’t make me want to strangle Declan. It’s at the beginning where I can just turn the page to find out more, rather than at the end of the book where I have to wait for the next book to come out.
- There are several romantic type scenes throughout the book. My favorite though, is towards the end, where things heat up a bit in the kitchen. I’ve read it multiple times, because that moment just never gets old. It’s one of those moments where you just want to scream YES! YES! YES! YES! OMG YES! Okay, that might just be me that does that.
- Marco and Amanda aren’t the only ones hitting it off in this book. There are several other couples as well. Merle and his ex-wife have a thing going on too. And it looks like Bosley might have found something interesting with Enrico.
Live And Let Bite is near impossible to put down. It grabs you with the promise of a possible romance between Marco and Amanda and keeps you guessing whether they will live long enough to get to that point.
The emotional level is on high in this one. Marco’s mood through the first part of this book just tore me up. The raw emotion of the scenes brought Marco out as a character who has more range than just homicidal vampire killer. There is emotional depth there.
Like the previous two books, the action doesn’t slow down. This is what makes the book fun. There is the constant battle of good vs evil as well as a bit of mystery thrown in to keep the reader guessing.
THE NOT SO GREAT
There are a few little things that are more personal taste things. The “teen boy humor” sneaks in here and there. I could do without it, but it’s not enough to ruin the book.
