When rejection comes back to bite you...
Jordan's life sucks. Her boyfriend, Michael, dumped her, slept his way through half the student body, and then killed himself. But now, somehow, he appears at her window every night, begging her to let him in.
Jordan can't understand why he wants her, but she feels her resistance wearing down. After all, her life — once a broken record of boring parties, meaningless hookups, and friends she couldn't relate to — now consists of her drinking alone in her room as she waits for the sun to go down.
Michael needs to be invited in before he can enter. All Jordan has to do is say the words....

Uninvited is definitely not a favorite book of mine. It doesn’t even come close. I wanted to like it, but I just couldn’t. It was Jordan that ruined the reading experience for me. The entire book, she was drunk off her ass and because of that, I never got to see the real her. I felt like she spent the whole time complaining about her predicament and never actually doing anything. She was just flat, and… drunk.

There’s a vampire at your window, begging to come in every night. One of three things will happen: A) you let him in and jump his bones  B) You let him in and he kills you C) You pull out a stake and skewer him. Personally, I would choose a combination of options A and C… But it seems Michael had a different idea. 

There was too much casual drinking, sex, and drug use for my taste. I really dislike books like that, because (I’ve said it before) it’s unrealistic.

What I did like about this book was Michael. There was something about him that made the book better. Maybe it’s just my thing for bad boys. But vampire Michael was the highlight of reading this book.
