review: Drain You by M. Beth Bloom
Quinlan Lacey’s life is a red carpet of weird fashions, hip bands, random parties, and chilling by the pool with her on-and-off BFF Libby. There’s also her boring job (minimum wage), a crushed-out coworker (way too interested), her summer plans (nada), and her parents (totally clueless). Then one night she meets gorgeous James, and Quinn’s whole world turns crazy, Technicolor, 3-D, fireworks, whatever.
But with good comes bad and unfortunately, Quinn’s new romance brings with it some majorly evil baggage. Now, to make things right, she has to do a lot of things wrong (breaking and entering, kidnapping, lying, you name it).
There’s normal, and then there’s paranormal, and neither are Quinlan’s cup of Diet Coke. Staying sane, cool, in love, and alive isn’t so easy breezy.
The book was a train wreck that I could not put down. Really.
Quinlan. Dirty, dirty Quinlan who considered bathing taking dips in the pool, wearing insane outfits and applying fresh eyeliner everyday over caked on eyeliner was a mess. Not only that, she was also one of the most self-centered characters I have ever read. She used people to her advantage, for her gain, even if it meant hurting them in return.
HOWEVER, my biggest hang up with her is the fact that she is in love with a murdering vampire. James is no Edward Cullen vegetarian. He kills people. And she LOVES him. How is this possible? Really?
