Blue Bloods by Melissa de la Cruz
It's not a bad book, it may even be good but the sad part is that it has a potential to be a GREAT book. The concept of Fallen Angels living on Earth as Vampires is so unique and interesting but the way it's dealt with is downright crazy. It is more like a bunch of rich teenage Vampires in Gossip Girl instead of rich human teenagers. The characters do not have anything new or unique about them and the storytelling is a complete mess. It would have been so much better if the connection between the legendary angels and the vampires were elaborated or even some majestic or magical atmosphere was created around the characters. Also, the soul mates stuff could have been intensified. The love between the twins, the blood bound of the angels/vampire could have been more seductive and formidable.
But it is a fascinating novel and hopefully it will become more interesting and sexy in it's sequels.
PS: I am not sure but I think Oliver have a crush on Schuyler.
