aboutbook

The stunning conclusion to the Blood Type series finds the world in chaos and turmoil with one final battle left to determine who will survive—humans or vampires.

She had the world on her shoulders. Now she has nothing.

Reyna Carpenter was twenty-one when she became a live-in blood escort for the ruthless and darkly handsome vampire Beckham Anderson. She thought this was just a small price to pay for feeding her brothers back home.

But nothing went as planned. Not even her tumultuous relationship with Beckham. And now she wonders if anything will ever be the same again.

As she finds herself in the midst of a losing rebellion, she and her trusted friends must flee from a city conquered by the vampire elite. With their plans blown to pieces and everything they knew and loved gone, their future hangs in the balance.

Despite all she has lost, Reyna must rise from the ashes, reclaim the life that was stolen—and complete her mission, once and for all.

Dangerously Beguiling, Sinfully Swoony, and Deliciously Thrilling Conclusion

5hearts2

What a deliciously Fangtabulous conclusion!!! I have such an intense love for this series. Blood Cure more than satisfied my cravings, but I still want more. It’s just so GOOD! K.A. Linde has definitely earned a spot as one of my favorite new to me authors this year.

Soo.. I don’t really know how to write this review without spilling the juicy details. There are so many things I love about this book, but I don’t want to spoil the fun.  Anyway, if you’ve been following me, then you probably have seen my reviews for Blood Type and Blood Match and know just how obsessed I am with Beckham and Reyna. The writing, the world-building, the characters and all the crazy twists and turns had me completely hooked. Not to mention, both books ended with insanely jaw dropping cliffhangers that messed me up… but in the best way. And this last book… definitely had my head spinning and my heart racing. I seriously love this series sooo much and even though I’m satisfied with how it concluded, I don’t think my addiction was cured…

Blood Cure picked up right where Blood Match ended and showed Reyna dealing with a shattered heart and broken soul. She’s a wreck and an emotional mess… but despite losing so much and facing a bleak future, Reyna never lost hope and continued to fight for equality between humans and vampires. I truly enjoyed Reyna’s character development and how she became this strong and fierce leader and heroine.

Aside from a few slow parts here and there, this book was face-paced, wonderfully exciting and fantastically suspenseful. The idea about blood matches was really intriguing and I like reading about that part. While K.A. Linde didn’t hold back from torturing me with twists that ripped my heart and had me teary eyed a few times, there were some endearing and funny moments that lightened the mood. But for the most part… I ached so damn bad for these characters I’ve come to love and… I wish I could say more.. but just be prepared for the FEELS and SWOONS. And if you love PNR, then you NEED to read this series. I can tell you right now this is one of the best vampire romances I’ve read in a while.

Blood Cure was the ending I wanted and more. Dangerously beguiling, sinfully swoony, and deliciously thrilling from start to finish. This series completely stole my heart and had me addicted from the very first book.  Such a breathtakingly amazing paranormal series that I can’t wait to reread over and over again.

If you’re thirsty for something seductive, thrilling and exhilaratingly addictive with gorgeous writing, lovable characters, and steamy swoons, then pick up this series ASAP.

I received an advance reader copy of this book from the publisher and Inkslinger in exchange for a fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

As the provocative, sensual Blood Type series continues, the rare bond between Reyna and Beckham is threatened by betrayal, greed, and twisted secrets.

A desperate human. A powerful vampire. A world divided.

Reyna Carpenter was promised paradise. She was delivered into hell.

Giving up her body for money was supposed to be the hardest part of becoming a blood escort. She never expected to lose her heart to her dark, enigmatic boss, Beckham Anderson. After being taken by a depraved captor who plans to rule the world, Reyna will do anything to return to Beckham.

She just has to find the will to survive this game.

From the pawn, rises a queen.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story begins in Blood Type and continues in Blood Cure.

Swoony Saturdates

swoonysaturdates1

Good Evening Loves! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend. As for me, I had quite a busy day. I went dress shopping with my mom for her 60th Masquerade Birthday Party on April 15. It was very fun, but trying on gowns is very tiring. My mom did find 2 gowns she really likes so hopefully one of them will be the winner. She still wants to check out other places before she makes her final decision, but I really hope she picks this deep navy blue gown with a sweetheart neck line and gold accents. Anyway, after dress shopping, my boyfriend and I went to KBBQ dinner with our friends. Sooo good, but  ate too much and now I have this terrible food coma that’s making me really sleepy…BUT… I wanted to post my Swoony Saturdate before going to bed. I had most of it drafted yesterday, but just wanted to add a few more things.

Swoony Saturdates is a weekly segment where I’ll feature one of my favorite book boyfriends and explain some reasons why I think he’s utterly and undeniably swoon-worthy. And just for fun, I’ll occasionally describe an ideal date with the book boyfriend I choose. If you’d like to join me, feel free to do so and leave your links in the comments so everyone can check out your picks. Oh and it’s definitely not limited to just book boyfriends…you can totally pick book girlfriends too! Don’t forget to link back to me so I can see your posts!

Soooo without further ado….Let’s go on a Swoony Saturdate with

date2

waitforyou

Yesterday, I shared some of my favorite quotes from Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout (J.Lynn). It’s only fitting that I feature the handsome, sweet, and super adorable Cameron Hamilton as today’s Swoony Saturdate. I remember reading this book and crushing so hard on Cam. He made me smile, laugh, cry, and swoon like crazy. He’s definitely one of my top Book Boyfriends.

 

 

Reasons Why Cam Hamilton is Undeniably and Ridiculously Swoon-Worthy

I’m going to include some quotes that go with my reasons…that way you can get a better picture of why Cam is a total hottie in every swoony way. 

He can bake – I mean seriously ladies, wouldn’t you want your man to bake for you?

“I have cookies.”
“Cookies?” My brows rose.
“Yeah, and I made them. I’m quite the baker.”
For some reason, I couldn’t picture that. “You baked cookies?”
“I bake a lot of things, and I’m sure you’re dying to know all about those things. But tonight, it was chocolate and walnut cookies. They are the shit if I do say so myself.”

“I’m beginning to think cookies is a code word for something else.”
“Maybe it is.” He tugged on my bag again as he took a confident step back, forcing me down another step. “And just think about it. If cookie was a code word, whatever it symbolizes, it’s been in your mouth, sweetheart.”

AND He can cook too!

“W-w-what?” I stepped aside or was forced aside as he entered my apartment, carrying something wrapped in tinfoil, a carton of eggs – huh? – and a tiny frying pan. “Cam what are you doing? It’s eight in the morning.”

“Thanks for the update on the time.” he headed straight for my kitchen. “It’s one thing I’ve never been able to master: the telling of time.”

He’s sweet, romantic, and adorable

“I didn’t know what to say, but my heart was racing as he slid his hands down to mine. He placed them on his chest, right above his heart. “I have hope,” he said, his gaze never leaving mine. “I have hope because I love you-I’ve been in love with you, Avery. Probably before I even realized that I was.”

He’s determined and passionate

“There’s always tomorrow.”
I followed him. “Tomorrow’s not going to change anything.”
“We’ll see.”
“There’s nothing to see. You’re wasting your time.”
“When it concerns you, it’s never a waste of my time,” he replied.”

He’s devastatingly handsome and incredibly sexy

“He was gorgeous in all the ways that made girls do stupid things. He was tall, a good head or two taller than me and broad at the shoulders, but tapered at the waist. An athlete’s body—like a swimmer’s. Wavy black hair toppled over his forehead, brushing matching eyebrows. Broad cheekbones and wide, expressive lips completed the package created for girls to drool over. And with those sapphire-colored eyes, holy moley…”

He’s funny and doesn’t shy away from acting silly or dorky – I absolutely love a man who has a good sense of humor!

“And this must be Avery?”
“Oh, God, no,” Cam said. “This is Candy, Mom.”
His mother’s eyes widened and a bit of color infused her cheeks. “Uh, I’m…”
“I’m Avery,” I said, shooting Cam a look. “You had it right.”
She spun around, smacking Cam across the arm. Hard, too. “Cameron! Oh my God. I thought…” She smacked him again and he laughed. “You’re terrible.”

He also has a pet turtle named  Raphael… yup named after the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I mean isn’t that just the cutest thing ever!?

But most of all, Cam is loving, kind, protective and just an amazing guy who will do everything he can for the people he loves. Not to mention, he’s also a great big brother.

If you’re into NA romances with a little steam, I definitely think you should check out this book and series. Cam is my favorite for sure, but the other male leads in the series are totally swoony too!


Have you read Wait for You? What did you think? Who are some of your favorite book boyfriends? Don’t forget to leave your comments down below. I’d love to hear from you!

I hope you enjoyed this Swoony Saturdate post. Have a fantastic night loves!
