It’s Bridget Jones with vampires in this fresh and funny paranormal romance from debut author Juliet Lyons

When Silver Harris kisses sexy Irish vampire Logan Byrne on New Year's Eve, she knows other humans just won't suffice. Convinced she'll never see him again, she joins the uber-popular vampire dating site,

What Silver doesn't know is that the site is more dangerous than she could ever imagined, and soon she's in over her head. When Logan returns, sparks fly and attraction sizzles, but they'll have to escape some very real demons if they have any chance of lasting forever.

I enjoyed DATING THE UNDEAD while reading it, but a few months later I don't really remember too much about it.

Silver and Logan were both interesting and entertaining characters. There wasn't any real growth together or complementing—not 'oh you look lovely' but more the they really play off each other and make each other better type—of each other. As this is a paranormal romance, the connection between Silver and Logan was there from the moment they meet, but there wasn't anything that really wowed me. Don't get me wrong, they were steamy together, but I didn't feel the "I would die without the other" moments I enjoy most out of paranormal romance.

The storyline was interesting enough, but there were parts that didn't really add anything to the storyline and others that dragged a little too much. The epilogue was disappointing. I look for epilogues to smooth out the ending and provide closure and I just didn't get that from DATING THE UNDEAD. I might read more from this series if it's presented to me, but I won't go searching it out.

I gave it 3/5 stars
