4 Kiss Review: The Secret Guide to Dating Monsters (Secret McQueen 0.5) by Sierra Dean


Are blind dates supposed to be this bloody?
They say it's impossible to find a man in New York City. Secret McQueen needs to find two in one night. Of course, it’ll mean pulling off the impossible—find and kill a displaced rogue vampire without disrupting the first promising date she’s had in ages. As a werewolf hybrid used to walking a fine line of survival in the vampire world, though, Secret eats impossible for breakfast.

Somewhere between hello and the first round of drinks, Secret makes her move. Her target, Hollywood’s biggest star, shouldn’t be hard to spot. Just look for swarms of fans. Except every time her vampire liaison, Holden, helps keep her mission on track, her date runs further off the rails.
Either Holden has a hidden agenda, or he knows more than he’s letting on about her quarry. One way or another, Secret is determined to get her man, and meet Mr. Right. Or die trying.
Warning: This book contains a sword-wielding assassin whose barbs are sharper than her blade, a vampire with serious brooding issues but a skilled tongue, and an A-lister with a bad habit of eating his fans.

My Review:

This book doesn’t do much as a prequel, as a matter of fact, I would have recommended it higher if it was placed as a 1.5 or anytime after book 1. As a reader, you’re immersed into Secret’s world without the wherewithal of how important the events in this book are to the whole series and the effect/s the events will carry with the storyline. It’s a good thing, then that I read this book AFTER book 1. Smile 


Secret McQueen is a werewolf/vampire hybrid – and quite exceptional as the series never reveals another like her. She’s a hired assassin by the vampire tribunal and  Secret always gets her man.

In this read, Secret’s friend, who’s also a police detective, Mercedes, is trying to set Secret up on a blind date with another detective, Tyler.

But things are never simple in Secret’s world and as luck would have it, she’s also on assignment to kill a famous Hollywood star, who’s also a vampire. Holden, her vampire liaison is there to oversee her progress, but he proves to be one heck of a distraction. 

Juggling her date, along with Holden and her assignment proves a worthy task, but Secret’s not alone in her endeavor. Armed with her snarky attitude and a sword, she tackles the challenge head on.

Will Secret make it through the night and more importantly will Tyler call her back tomorrow?

*And for those who have already read book 1, we FINALLY find out the details on the infamous Subway Incident.*
