Shades of Twilight - Martin Sharlow

   After reading the first chapters of "Shades of Twilight", this book had my attention.  Melissa jumps down into the water and almost drowns.  Michael saves her and takes her to the hospital to be checked out.  Later Melissa and Mike start hanging out.  They go to eat but he has already eaten, so she's the only one munching down on a Whopper.  Melissa starts becoming paranoid at nights after leaving work thinking someone or something is watching her, so she constantly is calling Mike to come watch over her or take her places.  When something does attack her, Mike and Melissa start trying to find out how to kill it.  They enlist in the help of Mike's uncle and Melissa's friend, Debbie.  Will anyone be able to stop what's coming after them before someone gets hurt?
   I really did like this book.  Mike was such a courageous character trying to save Melissa all the time.  He was always there to protect her.  If she called him, he would arrive shortly after and would make it just in time to save her.  Melissa, on the other hand, was a bit of a crybaby to me.  She was always crying to Mike.  No matter what was happening, she seemed to sob over it.  She was also a stubborn character.  Anytime she was told to stay in the car or duplex- did she listen? (Nope- always did the complete opposite of what she was told to do and then made the situation worse)  Duh!  Just do what you're told for once and things may not get so bad!!
   I would love to have Mike's car!  Want to know what it was?  A replica of the "Smokey and the Bandit" car.  How awesome would that be?  The only difference was that Mike's was a t-top and Burt Reynold's wasn't.  But I love the idea of that car driving down the street with a HOT vampire behind the wheel:)

   My only dislike about the story is the romance.  I think it was lacking in the romance department.  Hugs and embraces came in plenty, but kisses- not so much.

   Overall, the story was creative and was able to keep me interested.  I do recommend this story for those who enjoy vampires with mystery.  Head on over to Amazon and get yourself a copy:)
