When I found out +Giselle from Expresso book tours was doing a cover reveal for Pretty When They Collide I jumped on the bandwagon. I was curious to find out more so I decided to email the author in order to get an advanced E-copy of PWTC and I'm so happy I did! I feel better knowing I've read a book before promoting it. It doesn't usually happen when I do a cover reveal because the book hasn't yet been published and I don't have much experience in this whole business. I may be a book blogger but I'm not much of a book reviewer. I would rather write about the books I read without getting involved in the professional aspect you know what I mean? It's my blog and I can do whatever I want!!

Honestly I had a good idea of what the cover was going to look like back in November 2012 when Rhiannon Frater had a contest about naming the title. I'd also heard that it was put on hold because of personal reasons. I understand that it was hard for her to finish the book due to the abusive content and character of the vampire Frank (who is an asshole) and I agree! He is an asshole! You can read her blog post for more of the details.

The synopsis pretty much says it best but Cass and Aimee made their debut in PWSK and I thought they were awesome and together they make a great team. We got to know more about Aimee, the witch, in this novella. She is the one who is being abused by the monster named Frank. Cass is still my favorite idk maybe it's because I love Rhiannon Fraters portrayal of vampires but she does know how to fight and is more kickass. Cass robs from bad guys and is going to steal Aimee away, watch out.
Did you know it is in the Dhamphirs nature to kill their vampire fathers and feed on their mortal mothers? I guess that's why meeting her father Cian in Pretty When She Kills was not the correct response?

"This really wasn't the way I planned to meet you. I had no intention of showing up all, 'Hi, Dad, I'm a dhamphir and a lesbian, howya doin'." - Cassandra to Cian 
If you haven't read Pretty When She Kills what are you waiting for?
