American Vampire
by Jennifer Armintrout

Buried in the Heartland is a town that no one enters or leaves. Graf McDonald somehow becomes its first visitor in more than five years…and he was only looking for a good party. Unfortunately, Penance, Ohio, is not that place. And after having been isolated for so long, they do not like strangers at all.
Jessa's the only one to even remotely trust him, and she's desperate for the kind of protection that only a vampire like Graf can provide. Supplies are low, the locals are ornery for a sacrifice and there's a monster more powerful than Graf lurking in the woods. New men are hard to come by in this lonesome town, and this handsome stranger might be Jessa's only hope for salvation.
Even if she has to die first…

my thoughts~
I started this book 3 different times. I was just in the mood for something a little different. I picked this back up yesterday and read it in about 4 hours. I love Jennifer Armintrout! She spins a tale that once I begin reading it, it just sucks me into the vortex! When I first began American Vampire, I didn't really care about Graff and I thought Jessa was a backwoods redneck. I changed my mind once Ms. Armintrout let me in on why they came across this way. But. It ends suddenly. And by suddenly, I mean everything wraps up in about 4 pages, not Sopranos type suddenly, lol. I am hoping the book ends this way because there will be more books in future starring Graff & Jessa.
