Meena Harper, forced to write about vampires even though she doesn't believe in them, falls in love with Lucien Antonescu, a modern-day prince with a bit of a dark side. It's a dark side a lot of people, like an ancient society of vampire hunters, would prefer to see him dead for. The problem is: Lucien's already dead! And while Lucien seems like everything Meena has ever dreamed of in a boyfriend, he might turn out to be more like a nightmare.

Not great. The author tried so hard to make it different than Twilight, but in doing so, it was just bad. Started out good then it all went downhill.

It has been a few years since I first read this book.Enjoyed reading this book again for the second time.

I am inordinately fond of Meg Cabot's heroines. They're quirky, flawed, sweet, and a thorough joy to spend time with. In Insatiable, Cabot adds Meena's adorable brother, Jon, the mysterious Lucien, and the laser-focused Alaric to the mix, which makes for a delightful mix. She plays with the vampire tropes, challenges its mysoginistic tendencies, and brings in a twist on vampire lore I didn't see coming. Meena and the men in her increasingly dramatic life are all interesting to follow and while the novel takes a bit to warm up, once it does, it continues on at a pace that makes the pages fly by. A good piece of fluffy fun that didn't disappoint.

The main character is sassy and fun but the plot drags a bit in places. The ending leads me to believe that there is a sequel (or series?) to follow.

Honestly i thought this book was amazing. I don't know what people mean when they say that they were disappointed. There is good character development and realistic people.

This book is amazing. I blew through it in about two days - I couldn't put it down. I would like to stress though, that while Meg is known for her YA fiction, this is not YA. This is one of her adult books. If you were looking for something akin to Airhead, you were in the wrong section.

" I'd rather be staked than have to leave Manhattan!"

"... even if vampires were stupid. Especially American vampires. They hung out in places Alaric himself would never have gone, especially if he were immortal. Such as high school. And Walmart."

" ... the fact is, if you let a vampire in one time, he'll never go away. They're like an unemployed, homeless relative."
