Broken Heart is the city with the highest rate of divorce and highest percentage of single parents in Oklahoma. And I, Jessica Matthews, have been a member of that club ever since my husband dumped me for his twentysomething secretary and then had the gall to die in a car accident. Now I’m not just a single mother trying to make ends meet in this crazy world....I’m also a vampire. One minute I was taking out the garbage; the next I awoke sucking on the thigh of superhot vampire Patrick O’Halloran, who’d generously offered his femoral artery to save me. But though my stretch marks have disappeared and my vision has improved, I can’t rest until the thing that did this to me is caught. My kids’ future is at stake…figuratively and literally. As is my sex life.

I just don’t know if I’m ready for that kind of commitment....

Well, I don't know about you, but this book came at just the right time for me, and I was very pleased with it. It was a light, fast read, with laugh out-loud moments, a gorgeous, yummy man, a strong and funny woman, lovable supporting characters, a world that was interesting and well explained, and...
Pretty amusing paranormal that's a nice break from some angstier reads. Some parts teetered into too much silliness but not too often. For me the most interesting part was the blend of vampire and Celtic mythology for the vampire origins in this world.
Extremely enjoyable. I heartily thank the fellow shopper at Barnes & Noble who recommended it to me.
