Never Bite a Boy On the First Date by Tamara Summers

Title: Never Bite a Boy On the First Date
Author: Tamara Summers (pseudonym)
Pages: 288
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication Date: September 29, 2009

1. I've got a few issues:
2. I'm a vampire now.
3. One of my classmates was found dead, with telltale fang marks.
4. I didn't do it! (really!)
5. Nobody believes me, so . . .
6. I'm going to have to find the real killer. I've already got three suspects. (three very cute suspects.)
7. One more problem: I am seriously falling for one of them . . . but what if he's the killer?

Kira, a normal 16 year-old-turned-vampire, is being accused of killing a fellow classmate at school; a pig-headed jock called Tex. If she doesn't find out who killed him, she's going to be locked up in a coffin for a very, very, long time by her vampire parents. She makes a list and has her top three suspects; Daniel, Milo, and Rowan. They've got nothing in common, apart from the fact that Kira has a crush on all of them. What if one of the boys (or the one she's falling head-over-heels for) is the killer? Juggling a murder? No problem. Juggling three guys? Big problem.

Never Bite a Boy On the First Date is a hilarious vampire romance coming from HarperTeen author Tamara Summers. Kira, the protagonist is a fun, unprecedented character surrounded with three very different guys who all want to be with her. Her so-called 'investigations' lead her with kisses coming from all three suspects and she finds that one of them has a history with her...

Rowan, the brooding poet, and one of Kira's suspects is creepy and secretive, making him all the more guilty through Kira's eyes. He has weird hobbies and obsessions and his parents are overprotective of him; never letting him leave the house and always checking in. Doesn't that seem suspicious?

Kira's other suspect, Daniel, is probably the most conspicuous character (but he may or may not be the guilty one! Read to find out!) out of the three, but his charming, mysterious allure lures Kira in. There's just one problem; is he good, or is he bad? Can he be trusted?

Milo is probably my favorite out of all Kira's suspects. He's bright, he's hott, he's completely amazing and Kira has him completely under her spell...and vice-versa. It's too bad he has a secret...and it's a secret that will tear them apart. A+ =)

The Bottom Line: As you can see, characterization is the best part of the novel, but that isn't to say that everything else is dull. In fact, it isn't. Everything is perfect and the plot, the characters, the writing, makes for an vamptastic and romantically amazing novel! Read it and find out the real suspect!
