Review: Night Sighs by Emma Meade

Meet Alex & Tristan, modern star-crossed lovers of the supernatural variety.
Alex is running-on-empty one year on from the death of her fiancé, and the only thing that keeps her going is her romance with the young vampire Tristan. Tristan meanwhile has a serious obsession with Bruce Springsteen and is battling a can't-live-without-you sort of love for Alex. He's trying to persuade her to come over to the dark side but so far she's resisting his efforts.

So come and sing along to Tristan's band, The Dead Beats, the hottest group in London right now and walk with Alex as she teeters between this life and the next.
Because when you're around Tristan, you'll see how much fun it is to be alive when you're dead....

Night Sighs is a paranormal romance, following the relationship
& adventures of Tristan & Alex through
five short stories: The Dead Beats, The Ancients, Until My Body Is Dust, Bourbon & Jazz and West of Forever

My Review:

I'm going to start this review off with a note to the author...Emma, you are a horrid tease!!  These short stories are very well written but leave you wanting for more.  Alex is an independent female who is in love with a rather immature vampire.  She loves the fact she is alive, but can she live without Tristan?  The first story outlays the conflict in the relationship.  Tristan comes off as in charge and obsessive over Alex.  Alex is confused about what she really wants.  She decides to leave him, not realizing a huge chunk of her soul was left behind.  Tristan is completely crushed and turns to music as an outlet.  His band, The Dead Beats, is bringing a lot of unwanted attention to the vampire community.  This is how Alex finds Tristan 2 years later, at a concert.  But she receives the shock of her life, when he comes off stage to get her!!
Emma has a wonderful opportunity to turn these short stories into an excellent full length novel.  Seriously, once you read through this collection, you want more details!!  Like how did Alex and Tristan meet?  How long did their love affair last?  And I have a growing list of questions every time I rethink the premise!  I really enjoyed these little glimpses in their world!  This collection is definitely worth reading!!
