For the Love of a Vampire (Blood Like Poison #1) by M. Leighton

Amazon Summary:
Like most seventeen year olds, Ridley Heller thought she had her future all planned out. What she wanted most in life was to get out of small town Harker. Her only goal was to keep her mouth shut and her grades high so she could win a cheerleading scholarship to Stanford. But that was before she met Bo. In Ridley’s wildest dreams, she could never have planned for someone like Bo, for a love so intense it left her breathless. No human girl could. A haunting stranger that watched her from afar, Bo stole Ridley’s heart from the moment she laid eyes on him. But he has secrets. Bo’s a vampire. Both his past and his present are a danger to Ridley, but the biggest threat is not her blood; it’s her heart. He’s feeding a thirst for revenge that will cost him his life, and it may already be too late. The more darkness Ridley uncovers, the more she realizes that her life will never be the same—with or without Bo. Can she sacrifice her future and her heart for someone who has a death wish?

My Review:
I first want to say is this is not like Twilight. It's a completely different kind of vampire awesomeness! It puts a unique twist on the vampire curse that I have read no where else. Who doesn't like a good vampire book and look at that cover! This was one of those books that you start out reading and forget about the time factor and realize its like 2 in the mourning. I was sucked into Ridley's world. Ridley has a pretty awesome personality and could be my friend any day! She comes from a pretty dysfunctional family and quite often pretends to be happy with her life. But, deep down she isn't very happy it all. Bo changes all that :)

Her friends are very interesting as well. I kind of liked Drew was just...ok. I didn't really get into him and Ridley's relationship if that makes sense. I absolutely loathed Trinity. I think we have all dealt with a girl like that and it sucks!

Bo is a very interesting (cough..sexy...cough) young man. The mysterious good lookin guy. But, oh boy does he have secrets! Ridley starts to unravel them and they discover some pretty crazy things that are going on. Their love is fate and can you fight fate? We will have to see what happens in the series!
