Hearts at Stake by Alyxandra Harvey

On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family. Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.

This book was amazing. Sarah of Sarah’s Random Musings suggested it to me and at first I kinda didn’t want to read another vampire book. I admit though, once I started reading, I couldn’t stop. Alyxandra Harvey has a knack for writing Vampire books. I can’t wait to read the second one because the first one was amazing.
Alyxandra wrote a unique book that put a lovely twist on Snow White. Nicholas was totally swoon worthy and I wish he was real. Hopefully Blood Feud (the second book) is just as awesome if not more, I can’t wait to read it and tell you all what I think.
I recommend Hearts at Stake to anybody. It was an interesting spin on Snow White, it has characters that will make you wish you were in the book, and some kick-butt adventures!

FTC- I bought this book.
