Goodreads Synopsis:

Two sisters—as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Cover is to die for, but it seems destiny has something else in mind...

Rayne McDonald had it all figured out. Get turned into a vampire, become the mate of the Blood Coven leader, and live the high-life for all eternity. Too bad the head vamp took a bite out of her twin sister by mistake. Now, not only is Rayne still not a vampire, but she learns she's a slayer instead—destined to destroy vamps gone bad. 

After being recruited by a secret organization, Rayne is given her first mission: infiltrate a seedy bar downtown and expose its vampire owner, Maverick, for purposely spreading a nasty blood virus. Luckily the Blood Coven sends some help—in the form of sexy vampire Jareth. Will vampire and slayer be able to settle their differences and work together to bring down the evil Maverick? Or will they find their own hearts on the line?

My Review:

Hmm... I know, that's not really a good way to start a review but I have very mixed feelings about this series. I wasn't that interested in this series however, I read every single book so I guess that says a lot about my reading habits. It's not that I didn't like the concept, it's the fact that the books seemed a little too childish. Sunny was a very annoying character. She kept worrying about herself and didn't care about the bond between Magnus. He has feelings too, she should at least ask him how he's doing. But Sunny was just focused on Sunny.

Rayne on the other hand, was very interesting. I loved her sense of humor and sarcastic approach to everything. If I was her I would be pissed that Magnus bit the wrong sister. However, Rayne is taking it well and not acting like a whiny baby like her sister. One thing that annoyed me was the writing. The entire book was written in a blog entry style with so many OMGs and FYIs that I was ready to fling my book across my room. And another thing that was kinda annoying was how the books switched from each sisters point of views. (I just hate that in books). So overall, it was just an okay read for me.
