When rejection comes back to bite you...

Jordan's life sucks. Her boyfriend, Michael, dumped her, slept his way through half the student body, and then killed himself. But now, somehow, he appears at her window every night, begging her to let him in.

Jordan can't understand why he wants her, but she feels her resistance wearing down. After all, her life -- once a broken record of boring parties, meaningless hookups, and friends she couldn't relate to -- now consists of her drinking alone in her room as she waits for the sun to go down.

Michael needs to be invited in before he can enter. All Jordan has to do is say the words....

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lacked Realism- Maybe 1.5 stars for me Well this book had an okay storyline but it was written horribly. It's a but more of the classic-tyoe vampire that turns into bats and stuff. That didn't bother me but It really lacked description. I had no idea what the main character looked like throughout this story or what her surroundings looked like. It was a little but hard to get into. I liked the ending but this book isn't worth buying. If you want to read this borrow it from a friend or from the library. It may cause major disapointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent "Uninvited" by Amanda Marrone is a twist on the classic tale of when rejection comes back to bite you. The main character dumped her boyfriend at the start of the school year, then he killed himself over the summer. Or did he? Because now he's showing up at her bedroom window every night, asking her to invite him in. Filled with suspense and a climax that kept me reading late into the night, Amanda Marrone's "Uninvited" is a must read for all vampire lovers.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Okay not fabu This was a fast read for me. I enjoyed the story but I loved the message behind it. Ladies, sometimes the fantasy is just in ours head and he really is a jerk. This book should be read after "He's Just Not That Into You" as they fit together quite nicely. Jordan is an okay character but she grows so much, which is what I love. She learns to be true to herself and realizes that value of her. Okay, I realize that sounds like a school special but I promise you it's not that cheesy. The pitfalls is that it lacks details and the vampire lifestyle info. You get the glazed on version, Michael is a vampire, next scene. If you're looking for a detailed vampire book I wouldn't pick this up. I thought it'd be a bit more edgier but it wasn't. I wouldn't say no don't read it but I wouldn't put this book ahead of others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunately, not worth the read ... I had finished this book in over 2 hours – it really is just a short read... For Amanda Marrone first book – I would say was not her best. This novel did not quite describe/decide where things wanted to be put in place. It wasn’t just like any other vampire novel I have read, it was just about average with the perspective of a teenager struggling to figure out what to do with her ex boyfriend, who is a vampire and is now stalking her outside her window at night. Throughout this novel, there has been put very little detail about characters and the way the vampire lifestyle works. I would not recommend this book to you readers out there who enjoy reading about vampires. This had been a waste of my 2 hours that it took me to read this novel. The writing certainly needs a bit more description than it entailed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great concept but do not waste your time with this read.. Seriously. Don't. This book is so repetitive, it's insane. Not to mention the plot thickens, and lasts a whole 10 minutes. I went into this with an open mind and ended up wanting my 2 hours back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Uninvited I don't even know where to start. There is way too many things wrong with this book. The author didn't put any detail in it at all, the vampire thing was totally unbelievable, the story just went on and on, there was practically no plot, ect. All the book was was 'Hey, I'm going to get high. Damn, my life sucks so I'm going to get wasted. Hmm, should I let the vampire that pretty much stalks me inside my room? Wheres my liquor?' Anyways, what I'm trying to get at is that this book is pretty much a big fail, sorry.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Meh! I've Definitely Read Better This book could have been so much better. I liked the author's other novel, The Revealers, a bit better than this one, but still, it's obvious so far that Amanda Marrone's writing lacks what other authors can do with such ease. The book is short and it only took me a couple hours to read it, but overall, I thought the book was just ok. Every night, Jordan is haunted by her ex-boyfriend Micheal. Everyone thinks is dead but he's actually a vampire, and he appears every night at her window, begging her to let him. Jordan's a smart girl but her life is a mess- she drinks, smokes, her mother seems too busy doing other things and she had previously hooked up with random guys at parties. But for months now, she's been too afraid to go out at night, either drinking the night away or barely being able to get any sleep. Yeah, the books isn't a good influence that way. I mean, there's a scene in the novel where she's had like 5 or 6 beers a couple hours before but she still thinks it's ok to drive. Uh, that's a no-no. I couldn't relate to any of the characters and almost every single page was "Micheal this and Micheal that". It's very annoying after awhile!! And there was no point in making Micheal a vampire! There's practically nothing supernatural about this book at all! The author has simply made him a vampire to spark our interest (waste of an effort, really) and and then added a female heroine who doesn't know how to take control of her life.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Eh .. I stumbled upon this book thinking it was going to be really good. But it turns out, it wasn`t the best. It was just about a girl and whether or not she would let a vampire in. Along the way, it involved some awkward stuff - I find it awkward , anyways. You should read this book only if you`re bored or something. Not really a good read. 2/5 :\

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good. I was told by a friend not to read this book because it was absolutely terrible. I'm not picky with books so I decided to read it. I'd have to say I thought it was pretty good. In a previous review, someone said the characters weren't believable but I have to disagree. Probably because I know people who are like the characters in the book. The main plot of it - a girl struggling to deal with her problems was good but the whole vampire thing didn't seem to convince me. Other vampire books have made me believe they were real in the book but not this one. Overall it was not bad, I liked it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't bother with this. reading this book, it felt like the author was trying really hard to find something to talk about. most of this novel is about a girl wondering if she should let a vampire into her room. it was actually really boring and it was hard for me to get into it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This was a bad book. It wasn't well written, it wasn't interesting, the characters weren't believable, the vampire thing was boring. Don't read this book. Really, there are so many better teen vampire books out there.
