BLOOD LIKE POISON: FOR THE LOVE OF A VAMPIRE
In Ridley’s wildest dreams, she could
never have planned for someone like Bo, for a love so intense it left
her breathless. No human girl could.
A haunting stranger that
watched her from afar, Bo stole Ridley’s heart from the moment she laid
eyes on him. But he has secrets. Bo’s a vampire. Both his past and his
present are a danger to Ridley, but the biggest threat is not her blood;
it’s her heart. He’s feeding a thirst for revenge that will cost him
his life, and it may already be too late.
The more darkness
Ridley uncovers, the more she realizes that her life will never be the
same—with or without Bo. Can she sacrifice her future and her heart for
someone who has a death wish?
off, let me say I was really excited to read this book because of all
the great reviews. Unfortunately, I am one of the very few that really
didn't like it. It wasn't absolutely horrible, but it was bad enough
that I won't be reading the rest of the series.
To begin with,
Ridley (what a name?) had her priorities all screwed up. I found this
character made one wrong choice after another. I just couldn't connect
with her at all. Why on earth would anyone get into a vehicle with the
ex-boyfriend that has a explosive temper--not to mention he had
previously broken her jaw. That is just one example of her string of bad
choices throughout this book.
Bo's character didn't settle with
me well at all. To be a vampire for only three short years, he's able to
track, kill, and drain vamps much older than he. He also stated several
times in the book that he's not a strong vampire. A bit of a
contradiction from my point of view.
This story was also very predictable, especially with the character of Lars.
I'm sure many people won't agree with my 1 star review, but you have to
consider that 1 star mean I, personally, didn't like it. I'm sure there
are many people (obviously there is from the many great reviews) who
will like this story and hang on every word of it, but it just wasn't
