Summary of the Book:

Three things about Justin Roberts:
1. He’s a bully.
2. Our relationship is toxic.
3. He’s the only one who knows my secret.

A year ago, I woke in the morgue with a note in my hand telling me that I’m a vampire. I need blood or I’ll start killing people. Lucky for me, Justin has been sneaking into my bedroom and feeding me blood for a year, and the only price I have to pay for it is putting up with his cruel snipes and my unwanted feelings for him.

I just can’t figure out why he keeps coming back.

But all that changes when I’m offered a full-ride scholarship to Justin’s mysterious school, the elite Blackburn Academy, where I might finally learn about vampires. About myself. All I have to do is pass the grueling entrance trials, and the scholarship will be mine. Problem is, Justin doesn’t want me anywhere near his elite school and rich friends. He’s vowed to sabotage me.

Justin may have been feeding me blood for a year, but he doesn’t know who he’s up against.

But, Blackburn Academy is more than it seems. I’ll be facing more than what Justin Roberts alone can dish out.

Will competing in the trials be the new beginning I’m hoping for, or will it end my undead existence?

Previously published under the title A Bite at the Cherry. This is a full length 80,000 word novel. Recommended for 16+.

My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I have been reading a lot of academy books as well as bully romances recently. I am not sure if this quite qualifies as one. I do like the back and forth that comes with January and Justin. I was hoping for more time at the academy but only go a little bit at the very end of the book. I guess it is only the first book in a series so I hope we get to see more of Blackburn Academy in the books to come.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
