Undead and Unwed, by MaryJanice Davidson | Book Review #263


Book Review

421129It’a been a helluva week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, to top things off, she’s killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother) is that she can’t seem to stay dead. Every night she rises with a horrible craving for blood. She’s not taking too well to a liquid diet.

Worst of all, her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious, power-hungry vampire in five centuries – a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe, natch. Frankly, Betsy couldn’t care less about vamp politics, but they have a powerful weapon of persuasion: designer shoes. How can any self-respecting girl say no? But a collection of Ferragamos isn’t the only temptation for Betsy. It’s just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair – a seductive bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the heart…

Undead and Unwed does contain a whole multitude of conversation topics that actually blow over really quickly. There are also sex scenes in the book and a whole lot more sex scenes in the rest of the series as well. I was originally maybe, 13/14 when I read this book, so. It’s been a while since I originally read the first eight or so books. I don’t even remember how I managed to buy this first book honestly! Hahaha.

Undead and Unwed originally came out back in 2004, so I have no idea where you’re going to find a copy, but I know there are ways to find a copy if you’re really interested in read the story.

I found Betsy to be witty and funny. And frankly, unless you’re ready for it, there’s a lot of unabashed chatter about a whole lot of things that could be triggers for some people.

Undead and Unwed was a really fast read for me, even though this is my 3rd or 4th re-read of the book. This series is one of my favourites, even though I read the 5th book, at an entirely too young age.

I never rated Undead and Unwed before, so I gave the book 4 of 5 stars on Goodreads.

Happy Reading!
