Summary(from Goodreads):

Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.
Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude—and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood.

Why did it take me so long to start this series?? I honestly have no idea. I get so caught up in reading new release books, that sometimes I forget about the older gems that I have sitting on my bookshelf unread. I am going to make an effort this year, to shop my bookshelf more and not just my review shelf.

Some Girls Bite is a really great read, and the way it describes all the characters and sets up the groundwork for an intense storyline, I just know that this series is going to be one of my favorites. I participated in a read-a-long for this book, and I LOVED it. (please do another one soon!) So I read the book in 4 sections over the course of the month. This is much longer than I normally take, but it was nice to drag a book out. I got to savor it more, there were like built in cliff-hangers.

Merit is kick butt and awesome! And maybe a little stubborn and whiny at the beginning. But she went through so much, so I think we should cut her a little slack on the whining. She seemed to grow out of it about halfway through the book anyways.

The guy situation in this book is more complicated. There are a few guys- Jeff, Ethan, Morgan and Catcher. Ethan is hard to figure out. There is just something about him that I am still not sure about. I can’t wait to see where it goes in the next book, especially now that Morgan is in the picture too. I look forward to many moments of jealously all around! Morgan is nice too and I so want to believe that he is genuine in liking Merit, but I just don’t know about him either! I don’t like not knowing! Truth be told, I like Catcher most of all! It’s a shame that Mallory gets him all for herself.

Overall, The Chicagoland Vampires looks like it is going to be an amazing series, and I love that there are already lots of books out for me to read. I just need to go out and buy them, and get reading! I need to know what happens next!

4.5/5 Gavels

    I saw the buzz about this book last month and the plot looks to be really interesting. I always want to read more vampire novels.

    I agree with you on Merit being a kick-ass heroine, with having no intention of anyone, even Ethan, be the boss of her! I love the sexual tension also in the book – great start to a series!

    I need to stop and check out my book shelfs because I know I have books there that I haven’t read. I have been wanting to read this series. Wow 4.5. My local library only carries one book from series and it isn’t the first book. Hate when that happens. Thanks for this great review.
