"As someone who has survived her first year as an Acari recruit, Drew's ultimate goal is to become a Watcher and be paired up with a Vampire agent. Except nothing is as it seems. The vampire Alcántara is as sinister as he is sexy, Ronan is more distant than ever, and it turns out there are other vampires out there. Bad ones. They've captured one of the Watcher vamps and are torturing him for information-and Drew is going undercover to rescue him.
But when their vampire prisoner turns out to be a gorgeous bad boy, Drew's first mission quickly turns into more than she bargained for..."

Like Isle of Night, the first book of The Watchers series, Vampire's Kiss, was just okay. It was to quote myself 'neither a hit or a miss'.

In Isle of Night, borderline genius Annelise or as she prefers Drew wanted out of her dead beat life at home but now, now she wants out of her life on Isle of Night where she must she fight for her life against upperclassmen who have it our for her, keep the vampires happy, especially one of them all while figuring out why she is so insanely attracted to tracer, Ronan.

Drew is still a character I could not connect with. She is meant to be of above average smarts yet she rarely ever uses them which is very annoying for the reader. There was less Yasuo in this book which made me sad because he is the best character out of them all. Ronan was as one-dimensional as ever even when he not being distant. 

In my review of the first book I said I was going to read Vampire's Kiss because of a theory I had on Drew. I will honestly say that I have now forgotten what that theory was, sadly. The book does take an interesting turn at the end which although was anti-climatic does have me wondering what will happen in the third book. 

Final Thought.
Vampire's Kiss was an entertaining enough story, but contains no spark that makes a book stand out.
