Review: Vamps and the City by Kerrelyn Sparks

Who says a vamp can't have it all?

Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first–ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super–sexy and live contestant named Austin...

But Darcy doesn't know the worst of it. Austin Erickson is actually a vampire slayer! And he's got his eye on the show's leggy blond director. Only problem is, he's never wanted any woman—living or dead—as badly. But if he wins her heart, will he lose his soul? And if it means an eternity of hot, passionate loving with Darcy, does that really matter anyway?

My thoughts: What do I say about this book? It was defitnitely not what I was expecting yet I did enjoy reading it. It was interesting, corny, and funny.

This book had me laughing at all of the nonsense that it had. I really enjoyed the harem girls and I only wished that Sparks would have concentrated more on them and the reality show. I found it quite silly that these vampires think of themselves above mortals yet are so backwards in many ways.

The downside of this book was that the two main love interests have instant love. It was very irritating because Austin sees Darcy from far away and becomes obsess with wanting to know if she's mortal or vampire, meets her for five minutes, kisses hers, then they both claim that they are in love all within these few minutes. That's not love. That's lust. I wouldn't have mind if these characters did ended up falling in love, but towards the end. Everything happened too fast for me to take it as real.

Other than that, the rest of the book was good. I also really enjoyed the twist at the end. It suited Darcy's character very much. Overall, I give this book:
