Mila is not exactly lucky in love. After getting dumped by her (Surprise!) married boyfriend, she decides to try an undead dating service and finds herself with a hot vamp…who is a killer! Yikes! About to become her date’s next victim, she is rescued by Inspector Vincent Ferrer, who it turns out is also a vampire. A hot and yummy vamp! Of course, the killer gets away but doesn’t stay away. Now the only thing that can keep Mila safe is to stay with Vincent while they hunt down the killer vamp. These two are definitely feeling some attraction for each other. While they are having a little ‘fun’ playing house, Vincent has serious baggage from his past and doesn’t want to risk falling in love again. And keeping his distance just gets harder and harder…

Cute, fun and sweet. That’s what Drop Dead Gorgeous is. Really, there isn’t anything bad about those words. A bit sassy without a harsh bite, Mila is just adorable. Vincent has a sad history, is old school charming and is not up-to-date with pop culture. Throwing them together in his apartment made for hot and giggly reading. Temptations, temptations! It was sweet watching them fight their feelings but you knew all that smoldering heat was going to get in the way.

What would a story be without its secondary characters! I just loved what was happening between Ronin and Catherine. Here’s this scary vamp Ronin with the hots for Cat, and she wouldn’t give him the time of day if the world depended on it. Smirks! I see them getting their own story down the road. However, as funny as I found them to be, the comedic sidekick award goes to Vincent’s partner, Lee Davies. Nothing like a lovable, smart mouth, third wheel getting thrown in the same room as a blooming relationship to make things more fun.

The story itself was fairly simple. A heroine in danger, cop sets out to protect her from the killer, falls in love, yada-yada-yada. Honestly, Vincent’s past was not too surprising. Everything was falling in place and just a tiny bit predictable, until…! Yeah, I didn’t see that twist coming. Certainly made me pay more attention to the killer after that. Let’s not forget the this is a romance and an HEA ending is a requirement. Just expect more cute, fun and sweet. Drop Dead Gorgeous was a no-brainer read but still, I made for entertaining reading.
