Review: Sex and the Single Vampire / Dark Ones / Katie MacAlister

Synopsis (Goodreads)

If Allie doesn't find a ghost soon, her short career as a "Summoner" with United Psychical Research Association will be a thing of the past, so naturally she is delighted to find what she thinks is the tortured spirit of a gorgeous, naked, wounded man. But the cranky spirit, who looks exactly like the dishy man who has been haunting Allie's dreams, doesn't need her help since he isn't a ghost, but rather Christian Dante, best-selling author of vampire romances and Moravian Dark One. Of course, Allie wants some answers from the arrogant and domineering Christian, but he is more interested in working out the exact nature of their relationship, since fate has chosen Allie as his "Beloved."


My Take

This is the second book in MacAlister's Dark Ones series. In the first book, A Girl's Guide to Vampires, Joy promised to help find Christian's Beloved. In this book, Sex and the Single Vampire, Joy fulfills her promise.

We meet Allegra Telford (Allie), a summoner. She can summon ghosts, poltergeists, demons, and the like, but has a hard time releasing spirits. Upon a visit to a haunted house to practice her summoning, she finds the handsome Christian and mistakes him for a ghost. Soon after, she finds herself face-to-face with Christian at a book signing (that Joy had set up to help find his Beloved). Allie has a lot of questions Christian, and is roped into helping save Christian's friend, Sebastian, from some really bad people.

Ok, so this book was better than the first book in the series, however, I am come to realize MacAlister has a real annoying quirk with her writing. Her female characters' always have some annoying phrases, or words. In this book, it's the word "poop". Allie seems to use this word constantly. As far as the story line goes, I liked it, not exactly unique, but I liked it. The only editing mistake that stood out to me was found on page 160, so at least the book is not riddled with editing errors.
