**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**
I used to think that my life was boring. I resigned myself to the rut I was stuck in. Then my entire existence was turned upside down.
In the last six months, I’ve learned things that would get me committed to an asylum if I repeated them. First, I was kidnapped by vampires. Yes, vampires. Sounds crazy, right? My best friend, Donna, became one of the fanged after that little adventure and hooked up with a hot, Scottish vampire named Conner. They’re even planning a wedding.
Secondly, I learned not all vampires are evil. In fact, some of them are downright sexy.
Alexander Dimitriades has it all. He’s tall, dark, and handsome and manages to give me tingles in all the right place and also make me laugh. Unfortunately, to be with him, I would have to give up my humanity and I like being human. Then, there’s the fact that the whole drinking blood thing gives me the heebie jeebies.
To make matters worse, there are plans in motion to change the place vampires hold in the human world. And I’m caught in the middle, between the vampire I’m falling in love with and a group that wants to create a vampire dictatorship, with humans as slaves.
Now, all I want is my calm, normal life back. As my friend, Ricki, likes to say, “Be careful what you wish for because it might come and bite you on the ass.” I hate it when she’s right.
Once Bitten Twice Shy is the second book in the bitten series by C.C. Wood, and I absolutely loved it! I was sooooo looking forward to this book, and I was not disappointed! I cannot wait to read what's next!!
Ivie is sometimes a bit annoying to me, she's independent yes, but I guess I don't really like female characters that are always thinking the worst or a bit insecure of themselves. As I sit here writing this and thinking back on the book, I can also see why she is the was she is. The way she speaks about growing up the way she did I'd probably feel the same way about certain things. So actually she seems more real that way, so I take back my original statement, she's just a normal chick going through the motions. Then there is him; Alexander, Alexander, Alexander, what can I possibly say about a sexy, dominant, Alpha vampire?! I! Love! Him! He's not too overbearing, just the right amount of sexy protective alpha. Once Bitten Twice Shy picks up where we left off, only this time the threat is more dangerous, which makes for a lot of action and suspense. I totally love it! Now I am anxiously awaiting the next book in the series. The circle of Donna's friends continues to intermingle with Conner's circle, and I love reading series like this one. Where you get to meet multiple characters and eventually each pair gets a story.
