Review: Dying to Date (Fated Match, #2) by Victoria Davies

Vampire socialite Melissa Redgrave has the worst luck with men. Frustrated, she decides what she needs is a little help...from New York's biggest supernatural dating agency. Except that sometimes, a vampire doesn't always find her match.

Until she does. And he's delicious enough to bite.

Tarian Drake keeps his necromancy background quiet. After all, the ability to control the dead isn't exactly welcomed in the supernatural community. When he runs into the beautiful Melissa, she tempts him in a way that has never happened before. She’s his perfect match in every way.

But just as they are about to take their relationship to the next level, his family decides to make a stand—by kidnapping his new girlfriend. Now, if he ever hopes to date again, he’s going to have to get control of his family and free the girl. Oh, and stop a war.

I had such fun with this book! Dying to Date was fun and flirty with edge of intrigue from start to finish. At times I found myself giggling, others I was biting my nails.


Melissa is a vampire socialite however thankfully I did not find her to be a snob. Maybe a bit grumpy, but who can blame her when she’s dying to find a date (Get the title!). So she tries her hand at a dating service for supernatural. She’s not getting any matches until… Tarian has been around a VERY long time and he is looking for a mate. Necromancers aren’t exactly welcome in the supernatural world, so keeping his background on the down-low he tries out the same dating agency as well. It’s attraction at first sight. And so the adventure begins!


I found Dying to Date a hoot from the very beginning. Melissa’s situation as the dateless I found to be entertainingly funny. When Tarian walks in you can tell there is some serious va-va-va-voom between them. The dialog on their date was snappy and fun. And then Tarian’s family has to go in and ruin it by kidnapping her. Now things got real fun as Tarian goes for the rescue and the rush across the country to get back to her family to stop a war. The adventures they had along the way were some of the best parts for me. The ending was all I wanted it to be and more. Now the question is, will there be another book in this Fated Match series and who is it going to be about? Can’t wait to find out!


This is my first book by Victoria Davies and what a delightful treat it was. It had the right amount of sass, danger and heat to keep me entertained the whole way through. I missed reading book #1 in this series and if it is as much fun as Dying to Date was, then I will need to rectify that immediately. Very much a recommended read for lovers of fun PNRs.
