The concept of this book drew me in right away. I normally stay away from glitzy, shiny vampire romance novels and I was somehow not paying enough attention to know that was what I was getting. The premise had the potential to be amazing, perhaps even darkly funny; a shrink dealing with vampires and all the problems that accompany being undead. However, the actual "shrink" part of the book was thin and seemed like an afterthought. This was actually more of a novel about a female character that just happens to be a psychologist.
I also found the main character a little whiny and weak. Her "man troubles" (and she does have man troubles), got a little grating to me. Again, this is not my usual genre so I have no frame of reference, but I felt that the characters were at times childish and immature. If it were toned down some, it would fit right in next to the Harlequin romances.
The story was ok, it wasn't a complete waste of time even though I rolled my eyes a few times because someone was either falling into bed with someone else or thinking of it at every turn. Again, I don't mind sexual content in novels, but the novel seemed to be written for the sole purpose of including such scenes. I think it is missing the shirtless vampire on the cover. This isn't a dark, scary, or introspective novel. It's fast, when the protagonist isn't wondering who she's going to sleep with, and poppy and romantic. Not great to me, just average.
