She finds herself in way over her head, as she struggles to come to grips with meeting new friends, finding a boyfriend, avoiding the cliques of mean girls, and figuring out how to survive in such a hostile new world. She has trouble navigating this new world, where drinking and drugs seem the norm, and where social pressures build on her from every direction. Everything seems to go wrong for Rachel, until salvation comes in the form of Rob, a football player who takes a liking to her. But just as there romance is about to blossom, she finds herself confused by his actions. As things reach a low point, Rachel meets a mysterious boy from her school, Benji, a loner who keeps apart from the other kids, and who takes her on a ride on his motorcycle. They have an unforgettable night together in an amusement parkuntil something goes horribly wrong, and Benji shocks her by saving her life. Rachel knows that Benji is different from everyone else, and she knows that he is the love of her life. And as their romance deepens, she has to decide if she is willing to give up everything to find out his secret…

It was okay. I expected more. The plot changes so fast. Rachel seems like a mediocre girl but I'll read the next book.

Editing
October 2nd, 2015
Build up was slow and painful. All books have spelling and grammer mistakes but this one must have broken a world record. Redo the editing just for company reputation. The editor was half asleep on this one.

Stupid book. Full of typos and errors. This girl is stupid and deserves all the bad things that happen to her. Couldnt even finish it. Got as far as the 'perfect guy' on the motorcycle. This girl does nothing but complain about being a loser meanwhile she has 5 new friends, 2 boys interested in her, and her 'way overprotective' parents are waaaaay more lenient than mine were. All in all a total waste of time. Ive never deleted a book before but I think this one might be worthy of the trash bin.

This book is so slow and stupid. It has no plot and the writing is horrible. Where is the suspense? The relationship between the characters is not well planned out at all and it seems too farfetched for me. Overall not a very good read and I'm not sure if I can finish it.

I enjoyed this book. I agree that i was too short and that there was mistakes but all in all kept me reading till 1.30am this morning. For people that don't understand why she falls for benji straight away iys because he's a vampire and that is one of a vampires skills to be mezmarizing to people to glamor them.

Wasnt exactly what I expected. Yes, the story line was awesome, could have been more 'awesomer'. Bt I felt the author could have put more flesh into the story. Most of the scenes were brief. Overall the story was to o short and brief.

All through the book ur going what? It doesn't connect well. It ends abruptly and does not have a good story! Just a girl in a new town falling with the wrong crowd and falling under the peer pressure with almost no consequence, no climax, not a good book!

A bit boring at times for a vampire book but I take it, that it's her first book so we all have to learn somewhere. Personally it's too short. I finished it in less than 24 hours, so would have not payed for it.

An ok book for the first one in the series, the only thing I didn't like was the way Rachel met Benji, and how she instantly know she liked and was starting to fall in love with him (I mean she only 15 what does she know of love, way too dramatic for me!!) other than that it was an average book. But it makes you want to know what is going to happen in book two. Has potential to be better!! But an average book try for yourself you might like it more!

The grammar, punctuation and spelling appear to have not been edited in this book, and the story seems to skip ahead. I can see a young preteen girl enjoying this story, but I found it disappointing. After their first meeting, she knows they are in love and they act like a couple?? It's too far fetched for me.
