Don't Bite the Bridesmaid Review

Okay my pretties. I posted this review on all the *official sites* but never managed to put it on the blog. So since I have some free time and you need to read this book, I'm going to post it now!

When I was given the opportunity to review Don't Bite the Bridesmaid for Entangled Covet I was really excited. It's been a while since I've read a vampire book and what better kind to read than one with a sexy swoon worthy vamp that you know will have some even sexier moments.


**Yes, yes I did use pink ponies to show my excitement**

Don't Bite the Bridesmaid

by Tiffany Allee

4 Stars

Noah…where can I find me a Noah. Please tell me if you see him around. I read this book in one sitting. Two if you count the time I spared for dinner and cleaning up afterwards. This book captured me from the very beginning and not only I swoon for Noah, but I found myself rooting for Alice. Who am I kidding, there were quite a few moments I wished I was Alice! Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid was an amazing read and I couldn’t read it fast enough. I found myself checking my progress a couple times in the beginning hoping I wasn’t too close to the end yet and then at about 70%, I couldn’t bring myself to acknowledge the end was approaching quickly.


The plot blossomed from the first page developing quickly. Things passed full speed ahead and it really added to the total awesomeness that was Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid. The whole story is spun based on Alice who’s been Noah’s neighbor for five years but now she needs a favor from Noah. In fact that very agreement haunts them both for a while, just enough to make you wonder what’s really going to happen in the story. Tiffany Allee brought Noah, Alice, Cindy, Brent, Edna and more come to life with witty dialogue and the best week long wedding event. We all know how family can be and you must read this book to find out all the possible ways things could go. Allee builds scenes with ease that draw you in. Especially when its Noah and Alice interacting. I’d advise that if you read this in public and grinning is not something you normally do, you may get some probing. There will be a smile on your face and a squeal in your throat.


**There are quite a few of those moments^^ yup, the ones where you grin, clutch your heart and brace yourself for what's to come**

In a couple spots I was confused by the writing momentarily. It was like the narrative switched from third person to first person and I wasn’t really clear. However it’s not enough to worry about or that really hinder the story as a whole. Just a sentence here or there a few times, probably because the third person aspect switched from someone watching her, to someone watching him. But I still fell in love and absolutely loved reading every minute of this book.  There also was a back story with Alice’s brother that’s added in there, that left me wondering if I missed a story or a paragraph. I see where it’s meant to strengthen the story and explain why Alice reacts how she does, but the way it was introduced took me out of the story briefly. Seriously though my pretties this book was a great, fast paced story filled with angst, a lovable wedding party and some sexy moments.


I’m actually hoping that there could be a second book in their story (but don’t fear, Don’t Bite the Bridesmaid’s ending is wrapped up nicely). I can’t believe I almost forgot to mention that there was a twist in here that caused me some panic. I never saw it coming, it wasn’t even in my line of thought. I couldn’t believe Allee did that to me or to Alice and Noah! The best thing I can tell you is to grab a copy, clear your to-do list, grab a drink and prepare to be swept away.

**Oh and I chatted with Tiffany Allee during a #CovetBash Twitter chat and great news my pretties...there IS going to be more books in the series! *eek*
