Book Review-Dead Perfect

Dead Perfect

Vampire Romance


Only a woman with nothing left to lose knocks on a vampire's door and asks for help. Shannah Davis is convinced that the mysterious dark-haired man she's followed for months can save her life--if he doesn't kill her first. But though Ronan insists he can't give her what she needs, his kiss unleashes a primal hunger that makes her feel truly alive for the first time.

After centuries of existence, Ronan has done the unthinkable. He has fallen in love with a mortal--and one with only weeks to live. Sensing the fear and reluctance beneath Shannah's request, he offers her a different bargain that will keep her near him during the time she has left. Every hour spent together leaves him craving her touch, her scent, her life's essence. Soon, only Shannah can satisfy his thirst. But if he saves her from death, will she love him for it--or spend eternity regretting what she has become?

My Review:

Shannah Davis is dying, her docts have been telling her that she will only have weeks left to live. With a will of iron, to live and find a way to escape the diagnosis, she suspects a certain mysterious stranger of being a vampire. At first she intends to ask him to change her into a vampire, so that she can live. However when the time arrives, events occur in a way that changes her mind, however she is still intrigued by Ronan. Ronan is at first intrigueed by Shannah, when she ends up at this doorstep questioning him that no other mortal would ever ask of him, he is eager to wonder where she learned his nature from. Ronan has lived 500 years no less, and is a romance author, but no one in the world knows that he is a man, since the name of the author for the public is a woman's name. So he makes a deal with Shannah, that if she will do a book tour and act like she is the real author, he will pay her. However after spending time with each other, they grow closer together intimately and before they know it they start falling in love, but will that love be strong enough when Ronan acts uunexpectadley?

I real loved "Dead Perfect" its the first I have read by Amanda Ashley, I saw the cover of this one, and just thought that I would give it a try, and I am so glad that I did. She is  a talented author, and when I checked out her website, I learned that she is also Madeline Baker, whom I have read a couple of books from, so no wonder I liked her so much :) Also another reason that I loved this book, was that it is paranormal, and I love everything paranormal, and this was one of the best that I have read in the genre. It was filled with the perfect mix of everything that I enjoy in a good romance; action, romance and passion, strong characters and a intense plot. The cover also is very compelling, and draws you into reading it. There is also deep emotion that vibrates throughout the whole book and Amanda Ashely does a great job in portraying strong emotions and transferring it to the reader.

My Grade On This Book
4.5 Blossoms


  1. Sounds like a great vampire read. I love reading paranormal and vampires seem to be the in thing right now..Have a great week.

  2. Ooh, a vampire romance! I love them.;) Great review! I will consider putting this novel on my wishlist.

  3. Wow, this sounds like a good read, but it also sounds exactly like the Brotherhood of the Blood - Be Mine Tonight. I guess they say there are only seven stories but I didn't know B finds G, G is dying, B is a Vampire and turns G was one of them!
    Like your blog though so I am going to list it in my Monday Pay it Forward feature as one of a few. I do this to share the generosity I have had from other bloggers. Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

  4. Hey this cover model looks like the same one for Jeaniene Frost's new one!

    Gotta check this book out, my tbr just keeps growing ;)
