I preordered every book in this series as soon as I possibly could. I love Richelle Mead and loved the VA series. I also was intrigued by the character of Adrian--the flirty bad boy. He was so mysterious and also surprisingly caring. I love this spinoff series because of SYDNEY. She loved coffee, cars, and was not a risk-taker at all. She was a lot more like me than Rose ever was. She was insecure about her weight and insecure about herself. It was amazing to watch her grow as a character through the series.
