Review...LIFE & DEATH OF LILY DRAKE by T. Michelle Nelson!

product description from goodreads.com

For Lily Drake, slaying vampires is easy...Dating them is the hard part.

Lily Drake is your everyday hard-working single mom…until a gorgeous vampire shows up on her front door who she mistakenly assumes is her blind date for the evening. As one crazy scenario after another unfolds, Lily finds herself falling in love with two vampires, slaying the evil ones, and being prophesied as the savior of the entire undead race.
Deciding between pizza and Chinese take-out will no longer be one of the hard decisions facing Lily Drake once she is emerged into vampire society. Humanity or immortality? That doesn't hold a candle against this question - which of the two handsome vampire cousins?

The Life and Death of Lily Drake is not your typical vampire love story. It’s a tale about the humorous mistakes a woman makes simply trying to survive not only life, but the dating scene. How will Lily manage working full-time, taking care of her young son and fighting the undead at every turn?
Lily will have to figure it out, but who better to save the world than a mom?

My Review:

LIFE & DEATH OF LILY DRAKE was such a fun, entertaining read that held up to its promise of a vampire tale unlike any other. It starts off with a typical, everyday mom, Lily Drake, who's agreed to a blind date. A late suitor and unexpected visitor leads to Lily going out on said date with super-hot vampire Mathias, who ultimately leads her into a world filled with vampires and royal (or cursed, depending on your thoughts, lol) bloodlines.

Lily is such a great character, strong and independent and ready for anything. She is super focused on raising her son Keaton, and is ready to do whatever it takes to keep him safe--which causes her some major issues throughout this novel. I'm not gonna elaborate because I don't want to give away the story, but suffice it to say that Lily finds herself in some hot water a few times through the course of the book!

LIFE & DEATH OF LILY DRAKE is a great story filled with humor and mystery and tension that is sure to please any lover of both vampires and heated romances.
