You know what kind of sucks? (No that is not a pun leading me to talk about Insatiable.)
There aren't that many trailers for Meg Cabot books.
Other than fan made ones which I'm not always too crazy about.
I did find one I liked but decided I was going to go with author made instead.
Because, honestly, after watching these I thought "Just when I thought I couldn't love Meg more."
Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper.
But her bosses are making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn't believe in them.
Not that Meena isn't familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you're going to die. (Not that you're going to believe her. No one ever does.)
But not even Meena's precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets...then makes the mistake of falling in love with...Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.
The problem is, Lucien's already dead. Maybe that's why he's the first guy Meena's ever met whom she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena's always been able to see everyone else's future, she's never been able look into her own.
And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.
Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future...
If she even has one.
Insatiable by Meg Cabot
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
2012 was huge for me when it comes to vampire novels. Before I really hadn't read many so it was like I was just discovering them.
But not really because I was (am) pretty picky about them since I prefer my vampires dead at the end of the story.
When I finished this I have to admit I was pretty surprised that I loved it as much as I did. And the fact that this one is a romance. But then I realized that it is a Meg Cabot novel so I shouldn't be too surprised.
It was slow to start but once the story fully developed (or you know when the vamp hunter showed up) I could not stop. Which I haven't done since the last Meg Cabot book I gave 5 stars to. This was defiantly an instant favorite for me.
But then again Meg also introduced me to the paranormal romance so maybe I really shouldn't be that surprised.
Meena Harper has a special gift, but it's only now that anyone's ever appreciated it. The Palatine Guard — a powerful secret demon-hunting unit of the Vatican — has hired her to work at their new branch in Lower Manhattan. With Meena's ability to predict how everyone she meets will die, the Palatine finally has a chance against the undead.
Sure, her ex-boyfriend was Lucien Antonescu, son of Dracula, the prince of darkness. But that was before he (and their relationship) went up in flames. Now Meena's sworn off vampires for good ... at least until she can prove her theory that just because they've lost their souls doesn't mean demons have lost the ability to love.
Meena knows convincing her co-workers — including her partner, über-demon-hunter Alaric Wulf — that vampires can be redeemed won't be easy ... especially when a deadly new threat seems to be endangering not just the lives of the Palatine, but Meena's friends and family as well.
But Meena isn't the Palatine's only hope. Father Henrique — aka Padre Caliente — New York City's youngest, most charming priest, has also been assigned to the case.
So why doesn't Meena — or Alaric — trust him?
As she begins unraveling the truth, Meena finds her loyalties tested, her true feelings laid bare ... and temptations she never even imagined existed, but finds impossible to resist.
This time, Meena may finally have bitten off more than she can chew.

Overbite is special in itself because it was the first Meg Cabot book to finally push my nerves, have moments that annoy me and still get a 5!
I usually do a pretty good job forgetting all that if that book is this awesome. My best guess was that either some of the dialog or a character didn't hit me the right way, so very micro-minor detail. But, like I said, even with that I think I loved it more than the first if possible.
I read this during the summer and my past few summers have not been that fab (let's blame that for my being so easily bugged) so reading this book was my much needed escape. While reading I even announced that I would gladly battle flesh eating vamps any day. Especially if I had the help of certain hunters.
