Review: Boys that bite - Mari Mancusi

Release date: April 4th 2006
Published by:  Berkely trade
Number of pages: 272
Series: Blood coven vampires #1
Blurb:  The 6th book in the series Blood ties came out very recently.

Two sisters—as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Coven is to die for. But for the other, getting out could be lethal...

When Sunny McDonald gets dragged to Club Fang by her twin sister Rayne, she doesn't expect to find anything besides a bunch of Goth kids playing at being vampires. But when some guy mistakes Sunny for her dark-side-loving sister and bites her on the neck, she finds out that his fangs are real—and deadly.

Now, Sunny has less than a week to figure out how to reverse the bite, or else she's going to end up as the perpetually undead. And not only will she be a vampire, she'll also be bonded to Magnus—the bloodsucker who bit her—forever. And forever is a really long time...

Boys that bite by Mari Mancusi cannot be described with different words than entertaining, light and slightly cheesy.
Such things as Bertha the vampire slayer, and drunken, football-loving druids got me laughing out loud on basicly every single page.
It was a super fun read, but not something that will have me thinking about the story or the characters afterwards. That's why I gave it three gumdrops ^^

The characters were very steriotypical, the narrator, Sunny, was super ignorant and though she could easily win gold in a "who's-got-the-best-pop-culture-refrences/funny-puns-contest" she was very stupid and sometimes I felt like smacking her in the head with a frying pan.

Mancusi's writing is fluent, interesting and fun which makes the pages of this book fly by so quickly that you won't know where it went :S
I liked the twist at the end and that last sentance will definetly have me craving the second book Stake that!, but I would not call this book a favorite. 
Maybe I'd reccomend it to someone who was looking for a quick, fun read, but it's nothing that I'll be throwing in my friends faces and forcing them to read.
