Dark Kiss by Michelle Rowen


Blurb via Goodreads-
"I don't do dangerous. Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha-that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number-one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me...something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing-and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me. But something terrifying is closing in, and the one chance Bishop and I have to stop it means losing everything I ever wanted and embracing the darkness inside me.... NIGHTWATCHERS When angels and demons must work together, something beyond evil is rising..."

I REALLY really wanted to like Dark Kiss. I tried numerous times to really get involved with the characters and the story, but unfortunately I just could not connect. I have read other books by Michelle Rowen and enjoyed them. She is an excellent writer. However, Dark Kiss was just not for me. The best way for me to describe it was that it was just "meh..okay" 

I rate Dark Kiss 2.5 stars out of 5  "Meh..Okay " Just wasn't for me.  Loved the cover though!

I was thinking about buying it a few days ago even though the blurb didn't really appeal to me, as it'd been getting lots of good reviews and everybody seemed to love it and well, it was 10% off at the Book Depository. However, in the end I decided against it as I decided I should follow my instincts and well, I felt it would be a waste to buy a book I didn't really like.
Your review has somewhat reassured me about my decision :D
