***Release Day Blitz – Broken Blood by Heather Hildenbrand***

How do you defeat an enemy that knows your every thought … even as you think it?

 2

I thought watching my Werewolf boyfriend get arrested for murder was the worst experience of my life. But then I was knocked out and dragged off to a cell of my own by the very people who were supposed to protect me from danger.
I thought being held prisoner in solitary confinement for weeks on end was the worst experience of my life. But then a visitor came, and I realized I’d been wrong all along. There are worse things than torture and death. Much worse.
He wants my blood. More than that, he wants to get into my head. To use my bond to control his army, to wipe the world clean of anything with dirty blood. I can’t let that happen, but if I don’t he’ll kill every single person I’ve ever cared about—beginning with my Werewolf pack.
The prophecy said I would have to make an impossible choice, but I must be doing this wrong—so far every choice I’ve made has only led to more pain and danger and death. Hunters are pitted against Werewolves and I’m alone in my war against Gordon Steppe. I can’t fight him off anymore; all I can do is try to keep him out of the important places. And I’m failing at even that.
I thought the demons were out there, clearly marked and clinging to the shadows. But they’re not. The monsters are within the ranks of those sworn to protect. The enemy is among us.

Sometimes Family Can be the Death of You

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected.

For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles.

At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

Blood Bond by Heather Hildenbrand (Dirty Blood Series, book 3)

I have received an ARC copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.

Small blurb:

13495009

Hybrids.

If I had to choose one word to sum up all of my problems, this would be it.
Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to watch my best friend slowly becoming a monster. Without hybrids, I could let go of the mentality “hunt or be hunted.” CHAS wouldn’t be scouring the Earth, intent on slaughtering and using Alex to do it. Without hybrids, I wouldn’t have to be on guard that losing my temper meant losing my shape. There would be no monster inside me, struggling to get out.

Then again, without hybrids, I wouldn’t have Wesley St. John.

My thoughts:

LIKE OH MY GOD!

Heather has done it again! I so Freaking love this series! After I finished the previous part, I was itching to read the next, but all the ARCs and other commitments did not let me do that! Ugh! I wished I was reading faster!

But back to the story…

This part of the book picks up after their discovery abut Hybrids. The mess, Miles has left behind him is slowly kicking everyone’s butt. And what is worst? The hybrids want Tara, because Master has ordered them to capture her. Tara and everyone else is shocked that there is someone else behind the attacks. And none of them like it.

This book is so far the best one for me. Everyone matures so much that is amazing. Simply Amazing. We can see a new side of Tara. We have seen her as a Hunter, where she accepted and embraced this side of her, but in here, she has to acknowledge and make peace with her other side of the DNA. The Werewolf side. She is scared, terrified. But not because she is scared of her life. After one event in the forest, where she remembers nothing except the feeling of protectiveness toward Wes, she starts to refuse her Were side. She is scared that she will hurt someone. Someone she cares about. But behind the fear, we can see how wonderful and kind she is. She feels protective of the whole team. Even those who doesn’t like her or the ones that she doesn’t have any warm feelings for. She feels protective over the hybrids also, even though they want to kill her. She believes that it was not their fault and they should have a chance to chose a side. Like everyone else.

Wes *swoon*. In previous part I really loved Alex, but here? OMG. Wes is just perfect. He is still overprotective towards Tara, but we can see that he has acknowledge her strength and also started to trust her, trust that she is able to take care of herself.

On the other side we have Alex. Hot trainer, that even though he doesn’t want to, he loves Tara. And wants to save her, but also he is 100% Hunter and he hates Werewolves. But one event can change everything for him and Tara. Their friendship is tested.

In this part we have love, friendship, danger, war, betrayal. Emotional rollercoaster.

And to make things more complicated, Tara’s ex is becoming one of the hybrids and Tara has to decide how far she is willing to go to save him. To save all of them. Even if it can cost her sanity and her life.

Amazing book, and there is not enough stars to give it to it! A must read!

Cold Blood by Heather Hildenbrand (Dirty Blood Series, book 2)

I have received an ARC copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they’re kicking your butt in the process.

At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

My thoughts:

Cold Blood is a second part of the series, that I started to love. Tara is fun, a bit mean and snarky, but also she is honest and not judgemental. I love that about her. She is not condemning all Weres, just because she is a Hunter. She believes that not all of them are insane and want to kill everyone. She wants to help everyone, but being part of prophecy is leaving her  a bit stressed.

After Tara is shipped to her new school, she is not able to blend in. Being new student in a new school, where you don’t know anyone is tough, but being new in a school where everyone is better in combat and hates her because of what she is, is like a living nightmare. She tries to not be affected by hatred and mean  popular girls (even in paranormal school you get THOSE), but being away from home, friends and Wes is hard for her. She miss them. She miss him. And it doesn’t help that he is not returning her emails. There is no news from him. And she again feels like everyone just keeps everything from her. To not help her misery, her new, HOT, trainer is disgusted in what she is (at least that’s what she thought). But once all Hell break through and Miles is reappearing, claiming that they are destined to be together and rule the world, she learns that Alex is not disgusted nor he hates her. After their short moment, she feels guilty, but also confused about her feelings. After Wes decides to meet her suddenly, he is not showing up just to SEE HER, but has a motive and after that Tara is hurt, betrayed and sways even more toward Alex, who believes in her and knows she can handle herself, not like overprotective Wes, who is doubting her and her skills.

The whole situation gets even more complicated, with Miles and his secret project, and also uncontrollable rage that Tara feels.  What is worse…once she is overtaken by it she can’t remember a thing….

But I can’t forget about the supporting characters! Cambria and Logan! I love them, they are so funny and so different! Cambria is so funny and I just love that she just wants to stir trouble hahah Logan is that hot Nerd guy, with unhealthy unrequited love 😀 I really hope we will see more of them!

In this part characters are so much better developed. I loved first book, but this? This one is like WOW! I can’t wait to start the next part, which is waiting for me right now 😀

Review of Dirty Blood by Heather Hildenbrand (Dirty Blood Series, book 1)

I have purchased this book and was not asked by the author do a review. It’s my honest opinion.

5 Amazing stars. This book was truly amazing. Captivating from the start till the end. I loved Wes and I loved Tara.

11297376

Small Blurb:

I killed a girl last night. I did it with my bare hands and an old piece of pipe I found lying next to the dumpster. But that’s not the part that got me. The part that scared me, the part I can’t seem to wrap my head around and still has me reeling, was that when she charged me, her body shifted – and then she was a wolf. All snapping teeth and extended claws. But by the time I stood over her lifeless body, she was a girl again. That’s about the time I went into shock… And that was the moment he showed up.

Now, all I can do is accept the truths that are staring me in the face. One, Werewolves do exist. And two, I was born to kill them.

My Thoughts:

The book is told from POV of main character, Tara. We meet her at a bar, with her boyfriend playing pool. Unfortunately it’s not a nice date. She decided to break up with him. After their break, Tara decides to go back home by herself by catching a bus. On her way to the bus stop, where she as always chose to go shorter way, she meets a girl that suddenly attacks her. After this she learns that world is not as it seemed and her life changes dramatically. The only thing that helps her keep everything together and not loose her sanity is Wes. A mysterious guy that appeared after the attack and helped her deal with everything that followed. When the whole truth is being revealed and after Wes is doing everything to protect her, by staying away, she is not sure if she can do it. Not without him.

Wes. He is one mysterious guy, that since meeting Tara has only one objective: Protect her even in the process he has to distance himself from her and hurt her. He has a dark past and is carrying a dark secret about his bloodline, believing he is the only one.

Both of them are not able to deny the weird pull they feel towards each other and also growing feelings. The destiny has marked them.

I really liked this book, it was different and there was action (I like action!) all the time. I liked that Tara was not Great straight away and was getting her ass kicked sometimes. I was frustrated at Wes, more than once, when he tried to stay away from her, but hey! Men’s are like that! I definitely recommend this book!
