Have you ever picked up a series, a book that you knew you were going to love? That’s how I felt about Some Girls Bite from moment I read the first chapter, I already knew that it was going be the one book that I was going to love. I found myself loving it more than I thought I would. I have heard about Chicagoland Vampires series for a while now, I just haven’t had chance to read it, till now. I was happy to finally have a chance to read it. This series was action packed and there was always something going on. I loved the fact that this was different from other vampire series. Neill’s descriptions within the story made me easily to imagine everything that was happening. I’m eager to check out rest of books in the series.

  Merit is a 27 year old college student. While walking across campus late one night, she is attacked by Rogue vampire, only to get saved by Ethan; the head vampire of Cadohan House and only way to save was to turn her, into one of them. Merit finds herself joining the world of vampires when she awakens, which was the last thing that Merit wanted to be.

Merit finds herself having a hard time adapting to live, as immortal and at first attempts to deny it, along with accepting Ethan as her master. Soon she finds herself drawn to him, an attraction that she attempts to ignore. However the more around him she is, the stronger feelings seem to become. Soon other people getting attacked by vampires and Codohan house starts to get blamed, causing Merit to wonder who to blame the attacks.

First I wanted to talk about the cover, and the title. I thought that the cover has a real mysterious look to it and it fits the story very well. Both the title and the cover is actually what captured my attention in this novel, it’s what made me pick up. The title and cover is what made me pick up the book to begin with, before I even read the summary. I knew that it was going be fantasy book; I just didn’t know that it would be about vampires. It was attention grabbing. It made me curious.

Now, Merit. I loved the name first of all but I am still curious, to why she is using her last name instead of her first name. I remember she mentioned that there was something and the looks that she exchanged with Meredith, yet it never mentioned it why she was using it instead of her first name. I love it though, it’s totally unique name. I found myself loving her right from beginning, she’s a kickass character, and I felt like I could connect to her easily. I loved everything about her but mostly her attitude. I enjoyed that she didn’t take orders from everyone, including Ethan even if her attitude got her in trouble most of time. Meredith was another character I enjoyed, I mostly enjoyed her dedication to her friendship with Merit, how she didn’t treat her any different after she was a vampire. That’s true friendship.

Morgan & Ethan : Honestly, I preferred Ethan over Morgan, even if Ethan could get annoying at times but then not like I could blame him, for acting the way he did. If someone didn’t listen to me, I would probably have the same issue. To me, it felt like there was more chemistry between her and Ethan then her and Morgan. I could feel more chemistry when they were around each other, when they kissed and way she came to Ethan’s rescue towards the end. Morgan, him I loved his attitude, his dedication to prove to Merit that they should be together and I could tell there was attraction from moment they met. Yet I find myself hoping that she will end up with Ethan.

There wasn’t a single scene in book that didn’t have my attention. It got to the point that I didn’t want put it down, I wanted to see what was going to happen. I found myself wishing I had the next book in series after I finished Some Girls Bite, I needed see what happened next with everyone, especially Merit. I loved the fact that it wasn’t a young adult vampire series, something different for chance. If you are into fantasy, vampires, pick up a copy.
