Stake That! by Mari Mancusi Review

From Goodreads: Two sisters—as different as the sun and the rain. For one, getting into the Blood Cover is to die for, but it seems destiny has something else in mind...

Rayne McDonald had it all figured out. Get turned into a vampire, become the mate of the Blood Coven leader, and live the high-life for all eternity. Too bad the head vamp took a bite out of her twin sister by mistake. Now, not only is Rayne still not a vampire, but she learns she's a slayer instead—destined to destroy vamps gone bad. 

After being recruited by a secret organization, Rayne is given her first mission: infiltrate a seedy bar downtown and expose its vampire owner, Maverick, for purposely spreading a nasty blood virus. Luckily the Blood Coven sends some help—in the form of sexy vampire Jareth. Will vampire and slayer be able to settle their differences and work together to bring down the evil Maverick? Or will they find their own hearts on the line?

Rating: 1/5

Plot: 3/5

Characters: 2/5

Ending: 3.5/5

I want to start off by saying I read the first book a few years ago and I was much less mature and had not yet experienced better other books. That being said...Stake That! starts off a small time after the first book and is told mostly by Rayne's blog posts. Just the posts by itself makes it all so ridiculous and immature that I, even at only 19, could not stand it. I know Mancusi is trying to be light and funny, and sometimes it comes across, but mostly it's cheesy and ruined the plt for me. When Mancusi tried to be "serious", it failed--which was sad because I think the story and even the characters had a lot of potential.

I'm just not the right person to be reading this series and I will not read any further into it.

BTW, this is my only review (on this blog anyway) that has been this harsh and it kind of sucks!
