An all-girls vampire camping trip turns deadly when a sasquatch hunter is accidentally killed.

All Esma Siban wants this summer is to stay out of her stepmothers way. When her stepsister, Morgan, suggests a road trip to Oregon to visit a friend from high school, Esma jumps on the idea. A camping trip sounds like the perfect way to help Esma recover from breaking up with her boyfriend. But when Esma and Morgan encounter a stalker, Esmas fangs come out. The death of a Sasquatch hunter wasnt on their itinerary. A terrified Esma is unsure what to do next, so she texts her ex-boyfriend for help.?

Chase Wheeler feels like the biggest fool on the football team. The entire time he was dating Esma, he had no idea she was a vampire. In high school Chase did exactly what Esma told him to. He let Esma plan their dates, pick his wardrobe, and even pack his lunches. Now Chase has a month left before he starts college to forget the girl who froze his heart.?

When Chase lands an internship on the popular radio talk show Fred Head, he finds his voice and charts a future that doesnt involve domineering girlfriends. But all it takes is one text from Esma and Chase runs back to her waiting arms. Chase finds the courage to tell Esma that hes through with being bossed around right when Esma realizes that she desperately needs Chases input. The only way home from this camping trip is to be bitten or smitten.


4 Stars

Hunt Me picks up from where it left off in the first book, but can be read as a standalone. The author recaps the main events of the disaster of the Promegadon which gives a good overview of what happened that night. Chase and Esma are the main characters in this story.

Chase and Esma have been dating for a couple of years, but Chase was unaware of Esma's true nature. On finding out, he takes it as a betrayal and breaks up with Esma. 

Cassandra is from a family of vampire slayers and is friendly with Esma and her stepsister, Morgan. She organises a camping trip for the three of them to help Esma get over the breakup. Girls only! 

Chase is interning as an assistant radio host with Al, Cassandra's father who is a vampire slayer. Someone reports a missing Sasquatch being hunted, everyone takes it as a joke except for Al.

The girls are enjoying their trip until they come across the Sasquatch and the accidental death of his hunter. They are quite taken by the Sasquatch and sets about returning him to his family, then strange things start to happen. They are attacked by blood thirsty vampires and Esma resorts to contacting Chase. Even though, they are no longer together, he comes to the rescue. 

Although he behaves indiffently towards Esma, the feelings between them are still alive, but Chase is intent on a new start. When more danger appears in the most unlikely form of other campers, their first instinct is to protect each other. Can Chase forgive Esma for her omission? 

This is an easy to read paranormal young adult romance with plenty of adventure. "Barney" captured my heart! I quite liked Cassandra in the first book, but her behaviour is quite irritating in some parts of this story. It's also good to catch up with Van and Morgan. I like Esma's reasoning for her behaviour towards Chase. Despite all their differences, they make a sweet couple. I enjoyed the storyline and would like to see what comes next. 

I was kindly issued with an eARC and the views expressed are my personal opinion.




A nerdy high school senior transforms into a vampire vixen who's unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her.

Morgan Taylor-Jackson can't wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents' messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.

As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.

Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van's mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.
