I remember the days when I used to find Betsy Taylor (yes! her name is Elizabeth Taylor) extremely entertaining! She was cute in her dumb ways, always thinking about shoes, and sales, and somehow stumbling through being the Vampire Queen because, lets face it, she’s never had the skills. But after 8 books and so many events and battles, how can she possibly still be the same Betsy Taylor, if not worst, than during book 1!

Betsy made some good decisions in this book along with some plain terrible ones (how could you put SHOES before the life of your friend, seriously???). The different realities and time travels confused me a bit at the beginning, or maybe it was just Betsy’s head?

And then there’s Sinclair. What happened to the sexy, alpha Vampire King?!?!?!!? It was as if someone cut off his balls in this book.  He kept waiting for Betsy to make decisions and lead them, instead of taking charge of some situations.

The side characters are still funny, Laura, the devil, Jessica, Mark… they all still kept some of the humor in the book.
All I can say is I’ve enjoyed the series a lot, it has provided many laughs, but the time has come for me to just give up.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

The series was funny and silly and actually not bad at the beginning, but it just lost me with the past few books.

I tried the first book in this series. There was nothing wrong with it, but it wasn’t my cup of tea. I’m a tough audience when it comes to humor.

I hate when a series I like starts to fizzle. So disappointing! You have my sympathy.

Sorry this one didn’t do it for you, Francesca. 🙁
I hate it when a series has to die.
