Finally finished the last installment of Amanda Hocking my blood approve series.
What a disappointment!!!
I really just hoped I outgrew her writing. I remember loving all her stories so much. But rereading the series it just bothered me more to read it.
This last book just dragged and the editing was horrible. I think she needs to do arcs for her fans because I think she would get a lot of input from us.
Jack has no soul, Elise haunting Alice’s dreams and Dracula. Ugh so much going on. I just wished Peter had a better story line. Not to mention HE KILLED HIMSELF.
Hocking just wanted an end to the series and so did I. That’s what makes it worse. There was no real thought for then. And having to wait so long to get I thought she would of left it with a BANG!
The story concept in the first few books were good. Blood bonding between Alice and Peter. And her wanting to be with jack. It made a good story. If we would of found out that Jack was blood bond to someone else in the last book. That would of made a great story.
I was gonna reread all her series and even purchase her next book FREAKS. But I’m so disappointed that I have to give up on Amanda. Maybe someday I will read the other series but for now, She’s on time out.
Waiting for the last book of the My Blood Approves series from Amanda Hocking was a pretty fast one. I got to catch up on the series this week and finally finished the 4 first books.
I remember the story being a lot better than it really is. I’m guessing years of reading other authors such as HM Ward, MS Cooper and Londyn Casey my interests have change. Not that I LOVE erotica but this is the age that everybody is having HOT SWEATY SEX.
Amanda Hocking is wonderful as a paranormal writer and my 16yr old nieces would love her writing. I’m about to be 40 yrs old. I need more than just love and fate to get me interested.
HERES A QUICK RUNDOWN
Milo (Alice brother) ends up becoming a vampire. Jacks shut Alice out because he needs to train Milo. Peter is gone he ups and leaves. Jane(Alice best friend) is a blood whore. Alice turn into a Vampire. Mae turns her great grand daughter into a vampire( she’s only 5). Jane is murdered. Alice ends up being a vampire hunter.
BETWEEN ALL OF THIS
Peter tries to get himself killed. Alice and Ezra saves his live. They meet a few LYCAN ( even though we all know that’s a werewolf, in the series ends up being dirty Vampire that are savages) fight and kill the LYCAN. But one of them Lief ends up saving all of them from Being killed. Lief ends up hanging around. Towards the 4 book you going out he’s Milo and Alice’s Real Father.
In the meantime, Mae and Ezra end up splitting up because Mae decision to turn Daisy(great granddaughter). But the child is only 5yrs old. She can’t control her bloodlust or anything else. Peter help Mae with this Vampire Child.
Alice is now trying to find Janes murderer. Is it a human or Vampire who has killed her? Alice end up lying to Jack about what she is really doing. Which the break up?
YAY FOR PETER!!
You would think this is the best time Peter sweeps in and talks his true bonded love(Alice). Nope he’s the bigger man and still let’s Jack make up for everything
I am so hoping Peter and Alice get together.
By the end of book. Daisy is dead. Janes murderer is Dead. A few vampire hunters are Dead. Ezra and Mae are working things out. Jack and Alice are working things out. Milo and Bobby are stronger than ever. And my poor Peter still doesn’t have the Girl 😏.
Book 5 in a few days. Let’s see how Ms Hocking will wrap this up.
So quite a few years back, True Blood, Twilight, Vampire diaries or really anything Vampire was a what most people were reading or watching. Ages from Tweens to people in there 40’s that was the kind of time we were living in.
The stories are always the same, Hot vampire guy and normal human girl. They fall in love and usually(not Always,Snooki was a fairy) the girl was turned to a vampire eventually of course.
So as I have some time to read a few of my older books, I figured why not go back to reading Amanda Hocking. She was my first real paranormal writer that I loved. And since she has a new book coming out for My blood approves, I figured I would reread the series as a refresher course before the new book comes out.
As I settle in to read, I remember some of the story and the characters. But I really don’t remember the little details.
Alice -17 yr old high school student brother is Milo. Jane happens to be her chatty, slutty best friend. Alice and Jane try to get into clubs and when they can’t they call it a night. As they walk onto the dark streets of Minneapolis they are being chased by a group of guys. As these guys threaten Alice, of course a sexy man comes and saves the day. Jack is 24 and the women drool. Alice can’t figure it out. So she spend more time with him. Meeting his family and they all seem genuinely in love with her. Peter(Jacks brother) enters the picture and everything just got weird. There is a pull to Peter that she can’t understand, worst of it Jack senses it.
Finally coming clean they are All Vampires! (Didn’t see that coming,hehe)
This is were it gets good. In some strange universe Alice was meant to be with Peter. Even if she is human. Jack can’t be with Alice because of her and Peters bond. Peter doesn’t want her around. As far as the family goes, they can’t understand why Alice was bound to Peter and they want to figure it out. Like most stories people belong for good reason. Everybody has that ONE person they should spend there life with. Peter has had that with Eliza(whose now dead) but now with Alice he doesn’t get why. PLUS SHE’S HUMAN! Jack doesn’t want to let Alice go cause his feelings intertwine with Peters. And Alice really likes Jack but when Pete is around nothing else matters.
Who will she end up with if she doesn’t end up dead first.
Stay tune. Fate (book two is under way) let’s unravel this a bit.
