REVIEW: BLOOD LIKE POISON

BLOOD LIKE POISON: FOR THE LOVE OF A VAMPIRE
#1

M.LEIGHTON

SYNOPSIS (AMAZON)

Like most seventeen year olds, Ridley Heller thought she had her future all planned out. What she wanted most in life was to get out of small town Harker. Her only goal was to keep her mouth shut and her grades high so she could win a cheerleading scholarship to Stanford. But that was before she met Bo.

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?

MY TAKE

1 STAR

First 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.

Now 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 for me.
