Book Description 
17-year-old Jadyn and her dad are vampire hunters. That is until her dad decides it's time for Jadyn to have a "normal" life. When he moved them to Miami, Florida the last thing Jadyn expected was for there to be vampires.

Jadyn doesn't want to have a normal life, but then she starts to make new friends. She starts to think that maybe a normal life might not be so bad after all. But soon she realizes that maybe her friends aren't "human" as she once thought they were.

On top of everything else a very powerful vampire, Tabatha, seeks revenge on Jadyn. People from her school start disappearing, and people start dying. She wants to stop the deaths, but Tabatha has other plans for her.

Can Jadyn stop the one vampire that is impossible to kill before its too late?


Quote: "I didn't choose this life, honestly this life chose me. It follows me no matter where I am. I can't run anymore and I can't hide. This is who I am. This is what I will always be. I'm just glad I have finally come to accept it. Too bad it's too late."


Review: My Fairytale Life is roller coaster ride that sucks you in makes you feels safe then before you know it you your stomach drops as you dip from the highest point. That's what I felt, the beginnings packs a punch and the ending is so unexpected...I was like NO!! It was good though and I'm curious what is going to happen with Jadyn in the next book. There is a love triangle, so let us talk boys....we have Beau and Jeremy, both boys are cuties and each one has a secret. Beau is dark and mysterious and Jeremy is cocky but lovable. I personally hope she chooses Jeremy, he is adorable. Tabatha, as a villian is crazy as a bat, this chic is off her rocker, the things that she does in this book,wow.The story and characters are good but there are some grammar issues with the text that seemed to break the flow of reading from time to time, other than that it is a good read and I recommend it to anyone interested in vampires, fantasy or paranormal fiction.
