This: A Vampire Cure for Forever by Shaun Roundy
Life happens one split second at a time. Sometimes one second makes all the difference, though you rarely know until long after it passes.
Can you identify a second that changed your life? Kayla Porter can. It's the moment she met Melissa Clayton. Along with Melissa's brother Ethan, their fates intertwined and pointed to one of their deaths.
But what is fate made of, anyway? Who decides who will live and who will die, what will happen, and whether or not anyone can interfere?
Follow this thrill-ride vampire novel from one insightful revelation to the next. Experience the thrill of romance and adrenaline as friends and enemies explore fresh boundaries in a world of opportunity that existed all along, right before their eyes, but that they never before considered.
It's your world, too. It's waiting right before your eyes, but can you see it? This may open your eyes and change your life forever.

Lately, I have been missing reading paranormal romance. It's a genre that I really liked when I was younger, but as I got older, I grew out of it. Lately, I've been hearing about all of these great, new paranormal books that sound amazing. I've been wanting to get back into the genre, so I decided to start with a book that has been on my TBR for a while, This: A Vampire Cure for Forever. I really enjoyed the book.
I love This so much that I read it all in one night. I couldn't put it down. I only ended up getting about four hours of sleep because it hooked me in, and wouldn't let me go. I loved everything about the book. The plot was fast paced, and kept me needing to know what was going to happen next. Even before the vampire part came along, there were subtle hints that something crazy was going to happen, which made me want to find out even more. The author did a great job building suspense. My only complaint is that it was hard at times to tell when Kayla was in the real world, or when she was having a flashback. That made things confusing at times.
I also loved all of the characters. I enjoyed watching them interact with each other, and form their friendships and relationships. I even liked Kayla's first set of friends, although they were kind of shallow and superficial. My favorite character was definitely Melissa. I loved her attitude and kick butt personality. She did her own thing, and didn't care what anyone else thought about it. I only wish that I could be like that someday. The only thing I didn't like was what she did towards the middle of the book, although I understand her reasons for doing it.
I loved This. I know the year just started, but I have a feeling it might be one of my favorite books of the year. I desperately wish that the author would write a sequel. The book ended in a way that left some unanswered questions. I especially want to know what happens with the vision Kayla had at the end, and how that plays out. I will definitely be reading more of Shaun Roundy's books, especially if he writes more paranormal books. I recommend this to anyone that wants a quick, great book to read.
I give This: A Vampire Cure for Forever: 4/5.
