Review: A Bite's Tale by Veronica Blade

A Bite's Tale by Veronica Blade
Publisher: Crush Publishing
Pages: 155
Genre: YA Paranormal Romance

A Cinderella who spends her nights as a wolf. A prince with a taste for blood.

Seventeen year old Cydney struggles against her werewolf nature, trying to keep everyone around her safe. No way will she risk exposing the beast at the prince’s ball, no matter how her two cousins try to persuade her. Even as she attempts to get on with her life, Cydney can’t forget the boy she loved three summers ago — or what she did to him after losing control.

Turned into a vampire to save his life, the prince refuses to live up to his royal duties. He just wants to find the girl he loved and lost...the werewolf girl who bit him. But his father, the king, commands him to attend a ball where he must choose a wife. Can he find his Cinderella before he's forced to marry another? He doesn’t even have her real name, much less a glass slipper.
After I read Veronica's first book, Something Witchy This Way Comes, and her adult novella, Blind Date Checkmate, I was dying for something else to read from her! So when I got A Bite's Tale in an email, I literally squealed out loud in delight. Even before I started reading it, I knew I would love it, because I love everything Veronica writes.

This was an absolutely adorable take on the Cinderella story, with a well-written paranormal twist, and most importantly, a romance so sweet that your toes will curl in fan-girlish delight when you read the chemistry between Cydney and Remy. Even though it's obvious how the story will end, that didn't change the fact that I spent the whole novel biting my nails in anticipation, waiting for that time when Cydney and Remy would get reunited after so long apart, and realize that they were meant to be together. Even though this was a novella, so it's relatively short compared to a regular novel, I was still so emotionally invested in A Bite's Tale!

And let me just say, I am so intensely in love with Remy. He starts out a little dorky and awkward, but when he gets older, he turns into one sexy and smooth hottie! This is how I reacted to him (total swoonage!):


Listen, if you want a really great book, just pick up A Bite's Tale. It's not expensive at all, and it's totally worth the money. READ IT! 5 out of 5 stars.
Memorable Quotes
“You’ll be my girlfriend?” he asked. Butterflies were throwing a party in my stomach. “If that’s what you want.”
“I want.” Remy grinned.
***
The heat from his body warmed me and he leaned into me, wrapping his arms around my waist. I relaxed against him and let the back of my head fall against his chest. My eyes closed as I inhaled his scent. The metallic smell didn’t bother me so much anymore. In fact, now that it belonged to Jack, I found it enticing. I wanted to snuggle closer and get a good long whiff. The drawbacks of being a werewolf — we wanted to sniff everything.

  4. A Bite's Tale is a captivating story about Cinderella and a Prince, but it's more than that. It has a little bit of everything, from werewolves, vampires, witches, and warlocks to love, heartbreak, anguish, threats, and promises.
