Publisher's Summary

Aurora Keys has dreamed of the Vanderlind Castle ever since she was a little girl. But the fiercely private Vanderlinds keep the massive structure strictly off limits to visitors...until one night the wealthy family throws a party, and Aurora's best friend, Blossom, devises a foolproof plan for the two of them to sneak in....

At first everything goes smoothly - but then the handsome Jessie Vanderlind sweeps Aurora into his arms, crushing her to his chest and whispering, "I knew you'd come back to me."

Aurora understands it is a case of mistaken identity, but she feels connected to him somehow. And the boy is so beautiful, she believes she would be happy if he never let her go.

However, once Jessie realizes he is mistaken, his smile quickly changes to a scowl. "You must leave," he tells her in a low, urgent voice. "Immediately. Come! I'll find a way to get you out."

Unbeknownst to Aurora and Blossom, they have snuck into the home of one of the most prestigious vampire families in the world, and it is doubtful the two young women will ever be allowed to leave. Aurora's resemblance to Jessie Vanderlind's lost love just may be the only thing keeping them alive.

Predictable

Any additional comments?

Yes, I don't see any time as lost when is spend with a book. In this case, this book is very predictable, a classic story of a girl who fall in love for a guy (vampire), and their love is almost impossible. So, the book is very predictable.although this does not take the listener's expectations about the story.The book presents a simple plot with a nice narrative. Despite having enjoyed the story, I would not recommend the book for people looking for stories with a more elaborate plot.

If you looking for something quick and sweet

This is a cute little story with the reincarnation theme mixed with a little twilight but this girl seems to have more spunk than Bella. Is definitely the little story. If you're looking for something quick and sweet with a little bit of tortured male thrown in. I will say yes it is pretty predictable so far. I admire how the author manages to work in partying safety tips for females in self-defense information. That was likely be helpful to some young girls somewhere. :-) -LdyJulanna

Nothing Original

Not very original. Vampire teenager (at least on appearance) met a girl, thought she looked like his old flame, and saved her from another vampire. She found him intriguing and kept trying to meet him. The vampire family only drink from blood donations. He finally agreed to meet her at her place to talk but only outside the room since he cannot enter the house unless invited so thus will keep her safe from him. Found out she is related to his old flame. Has a vampire governing body. Sounds familiar anyone?

Loved the story, waiting for the next one

Narration was automated sounding and distracting but enjoyed the story enough to look past it.

Worse ending ever

the story was very nice but it looks like the writer ran out of ideas at the end.

Maybe I’m to Old

To give a fair review on this I gave it a three because it was interesting but I didn’t hold my attention for too long but then again I’m a senior so give it a try it’s a clean book for young teens

And it’s not like twilight never understood that book I mean the girl never smiled and how could you be attracted to somebody that moved around all the time then again I noticed with all these nowadays movies the teenager goes for the bad guy or a girl so it’s almost asking our teens to be depressing and hopefully find their own vampire LOL just kidding
