Attacked as a young witch and left for dead, Ashlinn is deathly afraid of being bitten again. Having survived until she’s almost eighteen without donating blood to any of her vamp friends, Ashlinn figures she’ll continue to live bite-free. After her crush reveals how powerful she is, however, the Vampire Council declares she be claimed as a familiar, which requires biting. Ashlinn doesn’t want to be owned, even by hot vamp, Conor. Luckily, her best friend, Matt, volunteers for the job. She is given one week to choose her protector, and the list of willing biters keeps growing. Will she go with best friend Matt, hot vamp Conor, or someone else to protect her? Will she be able to get her power under control by then? Will she overcome her phobia of being bitten? And who says she needs to be protected, anyhow?

It might surprise you to know that this book is actually really steamy and has lots of hot male vampires. Although I do like the cover and I do like the decision to not maybe sell the book in that way - it's missing the selling trick!
Witches and vampires are featured in this YA book. I was totally convinced that this book works as a single edition, I do think a series would have been better as it was very to and fro, almost confusing but not quite. It just managed to hold onto it's values and synopsis without getting into being too random for me to follow. I liked the love triangle but it felt very teenage angst with all the indecisions, which I know is what teens relate to.
A good but quick read but it left me wanting more from it than it did offer sadly :(
