This is the Holy Grail of vampire comedy romance dramas. Literally.
Boys That Bite takes a new perspective on this somewhat overworked genre, creating a fresh look for young adult vampire novels. Like Stephenie Meyer's Twilight, the story comes from the first person perspective, but that, and the fact that they are both vampire novels, are really the only things that the two books have in common. They are extremely different. Boys That Bite is a blast of originality, and helped me revisit a genre that I almost lost hope in. It is a witty, imaginative look at love, humor, drama, and of course, vampire. So whether you?re more a Sunny or a Rayne, this book definitely deserves a read.

Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with Sunshine's dark-side-loving twin sister Rayne at a Goth club, the vampire Magnus goes for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she'll be doomed to be a vampire.
This is not your typical boybites-girl love story.
Technically Sunshine can't get killed-because she's immortal. Well, not quite yet. Due to the worst case of mistaken identity with her dark-side-loving twin sister at a Goth club called Club Fang, Magnus, a vampire hottie, went for Sunshine's innocent neck. Now if she doesn't reverse it in time, Magnus will be her blood mate forever and she's doomed to be a blood-gulping, pasty, daylight-hating vampire. That would seriously bite.
And now, after the unfortunate slaying of the vampire leader, Sunshine, her sister Rayne, and Magnus must find the one thing that can solve her problem: the Holy Grail. They wish it were a joke but it's not. It's absolutely necessary that Sunshine gets out of this in time, because somehow she scored the hottest prom date in her school, the mouth-watering Jake Wilder. So she just can't be a vampire for the prom-let alone the rest of eternity.
