Synopsis: And college freshman Ginger Carmichael couldn't care less. She has more important things on her mind, like maintaining her perfect GPA. No matter how much she can't stand the idea of the cliques and the matching colors, there's something about the girls of Alpha Beta Omega—their beauty, confidence, and unapologetic sexuality—that draws Ginger in. But once initiation begins, Ginger finds that her pledge is more than a bond of sisterhood, it’s a lifelong pact to serve six bloodthirsty demons with a lot more than nutritional needs.
Despite her fears, Ginger falls hard for the immortal queen of this nest, and as the semester draws to a close, she sees that protecting her family from the secret of her forbidden love is much harder than studying for finals.
Review: Ms. Weatherspoon writes as if she has been doing this her whole life! The characters in Better off Red, the first book in the Vampire Sorority Sisters series (of which I hope there are many more!), come to life quickly and easily. They are each well-developed and distinct so you aren't able to mix up the characters. I was never in a sorority myself, but if they're anything like this one - sign me up! The vampire mythos that is introduced to us in this novel is definitely a new and refreshing approach to the genre. There is plenty of sex (all steamy hot!), yet it doesn't detract from the plot as it has in some books, it's interwoven seamlessly and is a necessary part of the story, in my opinion. Beautifully written, sexy, and sensual, with great characters and an awesome plot which lends itself neatly to the next book in the series without leaving huge plot holes unfilled. I simply cannot wait for the next book!
