"She is a master at entertaining and amusing readers."
--Booklist

Nobody does vampires like Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Princess Diaries and Queen of Babble novels. Overbite is Meg's sexy and hip sequel to her bestselling Insatiable, the story of a soap opera writer with precognitive powers who is recruited into the Vatican's war against demons and the undead. Unfortunately Meena Harper has a major Achilles Heel--namely her lingering affection for her ex-boyfriend, Lucien Antonescu, son of Dracula, the prince of darkness. Anyone who loves Twilight, True Blood, and Lynsay Sands, not to mention the singleton fiction of Sophie Kinsella, Jennifer Weiner, and Jane Green, is going to want to sink their teeth into Overbite.

This novel left me feeling only ok about it even though I read through it very quickly. Meena is still enjoyable and there were definite moments of humour but the plot felt a little thin and underdeveloped. Compared with Insatiable this book is not as great but it's still a fun read and it's enjoyable to hang out with all of the characters from the previous book. Definitely only for those who enjoyed the first book.

So confusing in some parts, like when the part when she told him not to bite her and the next thing she had bite marks that uncovered the secret? Not Meg Cabots best book i must say :(

This book wasn't as captivating as the first one, but it was still enjoyable.

I loved book 1, I didn't find anything to like about book 2 here. It reminded me a little bit of the Stephanie Plum books, or a make-your-own-adventure story.

This was an okay book, but I was disappointed in the ending. I liked that Cabot made a sequel to the first book, in that I get to see the characters again, but how this book ended off just did not seem right to me.

I am slowly winding down to the end of this novel. Meg Cabot first books are always great fun, it's when she starts making them into series is where she gets murky and her novels start losing their appeal. She doesn't know how to carry the characters to a more agreeable and believable plight. This book is point-blank boring. It has it's moments of interest's, but gets bogged down with too much internal observation and not enough external action. I also tire of the whole two-man-one-woman-chest-thumping antics. I found the whole finding the balance within yourself to be just a lot of jaw-jabbing.

Meena refuses to see or comprehend that Alaric has some points of interest to make about dealing with demonic forces. Instead of actually listening to him (the man has seen more then she has and experienced more with demonic forces) she continually undermines him, so he and Lucien are continually saving her booty from some poorly thought out plan's. I'm starting to like Lucien less and Alaric more. The way Lucien acts so rabidly possessively stalker-like is creepy. Also his thoughts of actually turning her into a vampire against her will and then lying about how it happened, because she was unconscious was too date-rapey for me.

The paragraphs there is just something off about the way they were written. I got lost at certain points as to who had whom and what was where.

ETA: I finally finished the book just know and this book went from boring to boring and disappointing. So Meena and Alaric are in love and fall off into the sunset, that sunset being Antigua. Kissing her passionate means he loves here... and that's the light-bulb going off in Meena's mind? Lucien's death is pretty anticlimactic. Killing Lucien kills Henric? Emil and Mary Lou are left alive; while every other vampire dies around them and they just slink off. Good triumphs over evil that is well-connected? You couldn't kill the guy, yet his achilles heel was Lucien goodness and sacrifice? WTF?! HUH DEUX?!
