Enjoyable story :)
This was an enjoyable story. I liked Meg and Dillon and their story was good. This was the first story I've read by this author and it was enjoyable enough that I might try more of her work in the future.
Meg is the owner of a clothing bouquet in the small town of Skull Creek. Meg lost her mother at a very young age and was raised by her father, who was the coach at the local high school. She grew up a tomboy and was better at sports than most. Her father died when she was still a teen and it affected her deeply, causing her to completely change herself and become more ladylike. Unfortunately, she was never able to shed her tomboy reputation and has a hard time finding dates.
Dillon is a vampire that used to be a computer geek. He grew up with very protective parents and felt smothered his whole life. He opened a computer shop in his home town but had problems getting any women to take him seriously. Dillon got turned into a vampire to save his life when he was critically injured while helping someone. With his new vampirism, Dillon found that women threw themselves at him and he decided to take advantage.
Dillon and Meg were best friends as children and in their teens, they found solace in each other and their shared exclusion from the dating scene in their town. Dillon was seen as too much of a geek for girls to like him and Meg was seen as a tomboy and all the guys thought of her as one-of-the-guys and not as an attractive female. They actually tried experimenting with some kissing between them but neither was very good and they ended it in disappointment, deciding just to be friends from then on. Dillon and Meg stayed friends and still saw each other regularly until a couple months before the start of the book (which was around the time that Dillon got changed into a vampire).
Meg is trying desperately to change her image in Skull Creek and get named in the semiannual list of the sexiest women in town. She recently heard rumors that Dillon had been seen dating some of the most eligible women in town and she can't figure out how he was able to change his reputation. Meg hasn't seen Dillon in a couple months and really wants to find him so she can see how he accomplished his transformation. When she does find Dillon, they make a deal where Dillon helps her be more sexy and she helps him with some fashion advice. Dillon has always had a bit of a thing for Meg and with his change, he feels the confidence to go after Meg. Meg is reluctant, not willing to admit any feelings for Dillon because she's sure she'd lose him in the end. Regardless of her fears and other issues, Dillon and Meg do work through things and end the story starting towards a HEA together.
This was an enjoyable story. I liked Meg and Dillon...neither character really grabbed me but they were likable enough. Overall, the story was good...I may go back to try book #1 at some point. :)
