Life as a Teenage Vampire by Amanda Meuwissen

Falling in love with your best friend is difficult enough, when he gets turned into a vampire? Downright impossible! Or is it? Angel read Life as a Teenage Vampire and shares their thoughts.

From the blurb:

The last thing Emery expected at the end of his senior year of high school was to become a vampire and fall in love with his best friend…

Emery Mavus just wants to survive his senior year of high school. Becoming a vampire complicates things. So does a bizarre mentor, a group of vampire hunters, and an unexpected, new attraction for his openly gay best friend, Connor. An occasional uncontrollable hunger for blood might be the least of his worries.

Angel's Review:

Emery and Conner are best friends and have been ever since they were kids. They live next door to each other and go to school together, the life of normal teenagers, right? Until Emery's bitten and turns into a vampire, that makes things become less normal for both of these guys.

Connor has been in love with Em for as long as he can remember. He's never said anything to his best friend in fear Em won't feel the same. However, when Emery gets turned into a vampire and needs blood, these boys start spending even more time together than usual. Over that time, Em realizes what he feels for Conner isn't blood lust. It's him being interested in his best friend. 

They have to overcome murders, a mysterious vampire, a awesome lady hunter who turns out to be friendly, a murderous vampire framing Emery, hunters who are determined to kill every vampire that exists, and having to deal with high school. Will these boys ever get their chance to admit how they feel? 

Yes! They do, and it was so sweet. These two boys are so great together, the banter and closeness along with the protectiveness and loyalty these two have was just incredible to read. Their other friends in this story were amazing as well. They have each other's backs, and that's what a true friendship is. The background was great. There was a ton of detail over the course of this story, loads of action and mystery, and, of course, romance. 

I do have to say this story doesn't focus heavily on the romance. It's more about the murders and hunters than it is about Conner and Emery becoming a couple. The pacing is a bit back and forth and times but overall it's a really great read. 

One of my favorite vampire books right now. 

Heat level is about a 3.5? There are scenes where they are making out but nothing too explicit. I really recommend this!
