 High school senior Rhodanthe Watson dreams of a life like any other girl her age; boyfriend, pick a good college, and find the perfect shade of lip gloss. But her reality is an overbearing and overprotective mom, and actually making it to college by surviving the heart condition she's had for years.
Meeting and falling in love with Julian, a handsome and mysterious new boy at school, was never on the list, neither was finding out that he's a vampire.
Being the girlfriend of a vampire has its dark side; especially when a jealous classmate decides to do something about her relationship; a move that threatens to destroy the dreams within Rhodanthe's grasp.
Rhodanthe must choose between her family, the fate that's been struggling to continue beating in her chest for years and a new love that comes with a high price...immortality or death.

My Thoughts:
  A vampire novel with a twist- I liked the love story of Rose and Julian and felt the author captured a teenage girl's voice well. Julian's voice was a little more awkward sounding but he was still a good character. There were a few editing mistakes but I didn't find them distracting. I've read books published by major publishing houses that has more mistakes in them. Yes it reminded me some of Twilight, but that's not a bad thing. It was a quick, light read and overall I enjoyed it. So I'm giving it:
