Xander's Chance - Lizzy Ford

First of all let me make sure you understand this book is not the first book in a series as you might think by looking at the Goodreads page. It is a spinoff of another series. A series I did not read and would highly recommend that you read before you read this book. I ended up reading reviews for the other books trying to understand who people were and what was going on but even with that I was so confused for most of the first part of the book. The reviewers who have read the other series seemed very pleased with the way things turned out in this book.

I would say I enjoyed 20% of this book. I liked the by-play between Xander and Jessie. Other than that I didn't like Jessie much. Her decisions didn't make sense to me. I was angry at her through the whole last part of the book. I didn't understand why Xander was an actor and how it really fit into the rest of everything. Yes, Xander the vampire is a famous actor. That plot actually sounds like something I'd really enjoy. Famous actor and temp assistant who doesn't know he's an actor who he cannot sense with his vamp powers. But it didn't fit with the rest of everything going on. I really wanted to like this book but other than the short courtship between Jessie and Xander I had to force myself to read.

Despite this review I do plan to read the other series because I think I would have liked this book a whole of a lot better had I read that.
