Review: A Bloody Good Secret - Sierra Dean

A Bloody Good Secret
After cheating death twice in one night, confessing her true nature to her werewolf soul mates and being asked to kill one of her closest friends, Secret took a much-needed vacation. By running away.

Now she’s back in town—dragged kicking and screaming—determined to clear Holden Chancery’s name. Right after she finds out what he’s accused of. It shouldn’t be hard—Holden has a habit of using their new and scintillating psychic bond to break into her thoughts and dreams at some very, shall we say, awkward moments.

Just a few things stand in her way: a secretive Tribunal leader, a group of would-be vampire slayers and two werewolf boyfriends who refuse to let her operate in her customary lone-wolf style. Even less amusing are the terrifying creatures that someone is using in an attempt to gain control of the council. Even for this out-of-the-ordinary bounty hunter, it’s a challenge with potentially deadly teeth.

My thoughts:

First of all there will be spoilers from book 1 as I am gonna squee and ramble on.

I read book 1 today and thought, why did no one tell me the series is so good?! (ok maybe they did and I did not listen). After finishing it I had a serious case of withdrawal and you know I had to get more. So I had to get and start book 2 and I did not put it down. No dinner was made today, the dishes from yesterday's dinner is still in the sink, the bed was not made. You get the point. I was all about schhhhhh! I am reading today.

So what made it so good? A great heroine that goes her own way, and is both vampire and werewolf. And in the last book she found out she is soulbound, not only to the werewolf king but to his second in command too. Sure Lucas is good and rich, but I am lusting over Desmond more. Just cos he was more willing to stand there at the side watching them court. I heart Desmond. But, all is not good, honestly I need to read more! In the last book there was a mention that her vampire side will find someone too. And I am dying to know who it is, someone new? Holden? ..the freaky Finn Sig? 

You know a series is good if I read 2 in a day. And when I also want the books in print as I read ebooks.

Conclusion:
Recommended of course. And I need more..mooooore.

    1. Even when I did not have a job I did not have time to read. So I would need a maid, a cook and then I'd be set ;)

  9. Lol, I hate and despise Lucas, think Desmond is too weak, and I root for Sig. Holden would be my second choice.

  10. Glad to see you loved Book #2, that one is my least favourite of the series so you know you're in for a treat with the novellas and book #3! (have you read the prequel novella? GREAT!) I'm not a big fan of Desmond, I prefer Holden! :-D
