For The Love Of A Vampire by M. Leighton

"Like most seventeen year olds, Ridley Heller thought she had her future all planned out. What she wanted most in life was to get out of small town Harker. Her only goal was to keep her mouth shut and her grades high so she could win a cheerleading scholarship to Stanford. But that was before she met Bo. 

In Ridley's wildest dreams, she could never have planned for someone like Bo, for a love so intense it left her breathless. No human girl could.

A haunting stranger that watched her from afar, Bo stole Ridley's heart from the moment she laid eyes on him. But he has secrets. Bo's a vampire. Both his past and his present are a danger to Ridley, but the biggest threat is not her blood; it's her heart. He's feeding a thirst for revenge that will cost him his life, and it may already be too late.

The more darkness Ridley uncovers, the more she realizes that her life will never be the same-with or without Bo. Can she sacrifice her future and her heart for someone who has a death wish? "-GoodReads.

I thoroughly enjoyed M. Leighton's first book, The Reaping. That woman knows how to write a great romance. So I was excited when she asked me to read and review this one, as well. 
Though it did not end up being one of my favorite vampire story, it was a good read. 

I really wanted to love the love story between Ridley and Bo, and sometimes I did, but most of the time it seemed to have happened so fast that not a whole lot of anticipation was allowed to build. It's just hard to believe, in any story, that after so little time of knowing someone you would be willing to do anything for them and feel such a passionate love. It needs more time.

And I wish there hadn't been the references to popular music and movies. That always tends to date a story and it can either still work in 10 years, or it may make it unrelatable. 

The revenge aspect of the story was my favorite. It made the story intense and emotion-filled and I will be curious as to how it all plays out in the other books.

If you enjoy YA paranormal romance then you should give Blood Like Poison a shot. Especially now with Halloween right around the corner!

I received this book free of charge from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review. This, in no way, altered my opinion of the story or my review.
