Description from GoodReads:
Sick of vampires? So is Meena Harper.My Review:
But her boss is making her write about them anyway, even though Meena doesn’t believe in them.
Not that Meena isn’t familiar with the supernatural. See, Meena Harper knows how you’re going to die (not that you’re going to believe her; no one ever does).
But not even Meena’s precognition can prepare her for what happens when she meets—then makes the mistake of falling in love with—Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side . . . a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire-hunters, would prefer to see him dead for.
The problem is, he already is dead. Maybe that’s why he’s the first guy Meena’s ever met that she could see herself having a future with. See, while Meena’s always been able to see everyone else’s future, she’s never been able look into her own.
And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.
Now might be a good time for Meena to start learning to predict her own future . . .
If she even has one.
Why haven't I read more from Meg Cabot? I read Princess Diaries back in the day and for some incomprehensible reason have not picked up another until Insatiable. Meg Cabot is magnificent! Insatiable kept me entertained and laughing. I was not able to put the book down.
Meena is not your everyday girl, she can foresee the death of everyone around her. (Not a power I would want.) She has not had the best experience with relationships. Apparently, telling your boyfriend how he is going to die is a no-no. Then on a midnight stroll Meena is saved by a mysterious but obviously handsome stranger. Her world is turned upside down and begins to resemble a paranormal soap opera when this mysterious stranger enters her life.
I loved how Meg Cabot manages to poke fun of popular obsession with vampires and at the same time write a great vampire book. Meena doesn't understand people's fascination with vampires and why a girl would find a guy struggling not to eat you attractive. She calls it monster misogyny because vampires always prey on young, beautiful, defenseless girls. Being one who loves reading paranormal romance especially vampires, I could not help but laugh because when put that way it sounds ridiculous.
The plot is predictable but 100% entertaining. The characters are great, the different POV allowed me to get to know and love all of them. It has romance, a love triangle, mystery and plenty of action. A great read for any paranormal romance lover.
I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a romantic fun time.
