A Bite to Remember (Argeneau #5) by Lynsay Sands

A Bite to Remember (Argeneau, #5) A Bite to Remember by Lynsay Sands

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Pages: 373

What a great book!
A Bite to Remember is the fifth installment in the Argeneau series. The Argeneau's are turning out to be very interesting and fun!
Honestly, I enjoy Lynsay Sands, but this book is my favorite by far.
It has even more action, romance, mystery and suspense than the other books combined. The other books I've read by her are still great but I find they are a bit simple and straightforward. But she does have a interesting twist on the creation of vampires that hearkens back to the times of Atlantis.

Synopsis:

Rule #1: Never get involved with someone who won't be there for you when the sun comes up.

Once bitten, twice shy, and sexy PI Jackie Morrisey wasn't going there again. Vincent Argeneau may be the hottest guy she's ever met, living or dead, but she's here to stop a killer from turning this vampire into dust, not to jump into bed with him.

Rule #2: Never kiss a vampire . . . it can be a pain in the neck.

Okay, so Vincent's had four hundred years to perfect his kissing skills, and he does look rather tempting when he runs around the house shirtless. He's also charming, protective . . . did we mention he can kiss? Jackie needs to be on her guard, or else she'll have to come up with a new rule: If you're going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember.
----------------------------------------------------------------

So let's get down to why this book was so good..

Private Investigator, Jackie Morrisey is hired by Vincent Argeneau to help him out with a business problem that has turned critical.
Someone disrupted the plays put on by his production company, and it's only the beginning.
Vincent's present production, Dracula on Broadway (ironically), is turning out to be a nightmare. Several actors are injured in “accidents” and an entire cast is struck with contagious anemia.
Nothing's going right and the opening date is getting closer. Vincent needs help tracking down the person responsible for the sabotage..but he didn't realize she would be human, and attractive. But she’s one of few mortals who know about vampires and is trusted by the Argeneau family. She's also amazing at what she does. What they both don't realize is the saboteur is about to get worse, and when people start getting hurt and it hits close to home they may very well be over their heads with this case.

Jackie Morrisey and Vincent Argeneau are the main characters of this novel, but it also features Tiny(Jackie's partner and best friend, of whom is not tiny in any way, being way over 6 feet in height).
The lovely Marguerite (Vincent's Aunt and Basien's very stubborn mother). Christian Notte, Dante and Tommaso.

Vincent is one of my dream characters. He's tall, handsome, strong but also very caring and sweet. He's kind to everyone, even if it isn't deserved.
I liked his character from the first chapter, even if he wasn't so sweet to start with.

Jackie is also a strong character. She has a painful past that catches up with her in this book. And I'm happy to say she is a great protagonist. She's curious and stubborn and can be cranky as hell, but she was really fun to read and in ways is easy to relate to. Doesn't everyone have a ex they'd rather not see again?

Sure, this is a very beautiful love story, but it's not constantly focused on that aspect, like in many others. It truly has a great developed plot and enough twists and turns that kept me wanting more!
If you love Vampires, Romance, Suspense and mystery..this is the book for you! It's great for a summer day read!
