Um, I think I have an author crush on M.Leighton. :)

After I read Blood Like Poison: To Kill An Angel, I felt like a fat cat with a belly full of warm milk sleeping in the sunshine. Yep, I was that contented.

This series finale wrapped up all of the loose ends and lingering questions with a neat bow. I will definitely miss Ridley and Bo, but this has been an awesome ride following this series.

Speaking of Bo... the heat factor turned up a few notches in this book. LOVED it. In typical M.Leighton

This book is absolutely and completely AMAZING!! I love the first two but this one exceed my expectations. It is full of romance and action! Perfect in every way!

What an amazing book! I'm still getting more tears in my eyes just thinking about it! This whole series was a wonderful blend of two of my favorite things - vampires & angels. The was the most amazing conclusion I could have asked for! There were many moments so frustrating that I just wanted to scream and every scene was so intense I could hardly stand it! The villains are as evil as they come but Ridley and her friends remain as loving and selfless as ever! And Bo, oh Bo.. as always he is ...more

This book was by far the best in the series. I loved the other two, but this one took it to a whole new level. It was well worth the wait.

I love this author and her ability to weave such fascinating tales of suspense, terror, emotion, and epic love. This book had every element needed to ensure that the reader would not be able to put it down.

M. Leighton grows before our very eyes with this one, proving that she is not only a fantastic storyteller, but she is a brilliant writer. I lost myself m

This was another great book from M. Leighton. I have enjoyed every book that I have read of hers. When I read a book that is exclusively published as an ebook I often have expectations that the book will be just a notch below the quality of something that has gone through the rigorous editing procedures to become a professionally published work. I expect the writing to be good enough, but with significant flaws, usually flaws in the pacing of the plot or in the richness of the details. However, ...more

Outstanding ending to a fabulous trilogy! This one was still introducing characters that are imperative to the storyline. It also wasn't quite as gory as the second book, but there were still quite a few edge of your seat moments. I also love how God was actually portrayed as a true entity instead of some possibly imaginary being, as you find with many of today's pc authors. I was glad that death (in a particular instance) wasn't a horrible tragedy to be mourned, as Heaven was the next step.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end :(
I really enjoyed this story, finished reading it on the same day I started, it was so entertaining that I just couldn't put it down. I'm going to miss the characters and their great chemistry.
I was really satisfied with the ending that M. Leighton gave to this wonderful series. Nothing with the story seemed forced, and its progression was pretty logical which is something I appreciate. I really hate it when authors give unnecessary twists to

I saw reviews and I couldn't wait to buy it so I could continue on this journey with Bo (sigh) and Ridley. Let me tell you I was NOT disappointed! I purchased this book late last night and had to make myself put it down in the wee hours of the morning...I could not wait for nap time so I could see how it ended! LOL!! What a great twist to the popular vampire trend making this series stand out on its own! I hated to see "The End" because that means be venturing into the intoxicating world Ms. Lei ...more

What a fantastic end to a very captivating paranormal series. Ridley and Bo's relationship grew right before our eyes into a perfect love. It was so sweet to see the two interact with each other and boy does Bo know exactly what to say! This series was wonderful it held my curiosity to the very end which usually one book will lose my interest.

I am soooo sad to see this series end!!! What am I going to do without my Bo fix?


I'm eagerly downloading several of Ms. Leighton's other series, but I will always hold a special place on my kindle for this series.

Great characters, great plot, great ending. The perfect close to a fun ride :-)

Fabulous! Loved it. It was the best of the three books. Loved how everything was wrapped up. Can't wait to see what's next with Bo and Ridley. Great job again, Michelle. I'm waiting impatiently for your next book to come out. : )

Wowza - Fanstastic series!

The book was the final one in the trilogy and it kept me guessing the whole way through. Was Savannah really so innocent? Was Cade setting them up? Was Annika setting them up? Was Devon a baddie? Arghhh I was on the edge of my chair, bed, carseat. I couldn't put it down. Would Bo the unkillable vampire, son of 2 angels be able to kill his father, angel and the first vampire ever? Would he be able to discover the love letter etched in Ridleys skin with the answers to def

A beautiful ending to a great series!

If you've been a fan of Ridley and Bo from the beginning you won't be disappointed in this last book in the trilogy. M. Leighton does a wonderful job of tying everything together and making sure Bo's and Ridley's story comes to a conclusive ending.

The only real question I had throughout the series was why Bo and Ridley couldn't ever get really intimate? If it was explained before I couldn't remember and even though this story pretty much takes care of that

Holly Molly this was the most awesomest concluding book ever . Obviously we all knew it had to be a happy ending , but the path to that happy ending my friend was what took my heart away . Unconditional love , faith & belief and ultimately the willingness to sacrifice oneself for your beloved could definitely be the theme of this book .
Ridley and Bo were simply amazing in this book . Their love , OMG , dont even get me started on that . I

I really loved this series! I'm a sucker for any love story, expecially a love story complete with vampires and angels.

To Kill an Angel

Last night when I was reading the second book Destined for a Vampire me and my friend were discussing books, as we love to do, and I recomeneded this series to her and she is going to read. I am really excited to know what she thinks of the series.
Also, as we were talking since I was all most done with the second book, I finished it about an hour later and then
*Possible Spoiler Alert*

Loved, Loved, Loved It!!!!Ü Events in this final book of the Blood Like Poison series happened so quickly that my heart never had time to calm. (Which was bad, because I was so busy I wasn't able to read very many chapters at a time.) I wasn't surprised that the ending to Bo's destiny would involve great sacrifice- "The Blood of Love." While most events in "To Kill an Angel" were often found to be frightening and tragic (which were awesome); the ending was pure bliss. Bo

Is there any possible way to give this book higher than five stars? No? Well make it possible! I absolutely fell in love with this series. I love how the author put a good twist to the whole vampire theme. I would have to say that this is by fare one of my favorite series. I loved how I thought I knew what was going to happen then all of a sudden something jumps at me from behind and scares the c*** out of me! I loved this book so much I read it in a couple of hours (I would have read it faster ...more

This was a fantastic conclusion to the BLP series! It was exciting, sexy, and thrilling! I do have to say, though, that when Bo pledges his undying love, I find the things he says to be very unrealistic...meaning...that I have never had a man talk to me like that. BUT it doesn't mean I don't LOVE reading about a man who does talk that way!!! He completely melts your heart! The bond between Bo and Ridley was so intense and breathtaking! The plot was full of excitement! And, as always, the writing ...more
I was not as engrosed with this book as I was with the other two books in this series. The story was still great and had a good ending, but I did not feel any emotions while reading and therefore I found it hard connecting and becoming a part of this tale of true love. The content was intense (people being attacked, sacrafice, love, etc.) however, those intended emotions were not conveyed in a way that allowed me as the reader to truly experience the same things as the characters.

What an excellent end to a great series. I wish there could have been more books, but alas it can be good to end things on such a fantastic note. I loved how at every turn there was something that was keeping the reader enthralled. I know that personally I had a hard time putting it down. Hopefully, crossing my fingers, there will someday be a follow up book, like an added bonus. (prob. not) Regardless, I will absolutely recommend this series to my friends.

Love this last book in the series. Of course, there were some loopholes.. which maybe aren't important anyway but ohmy, this threw me off. The book is thrilling as well as really quite romantic. Its a healthy dosage of "awwww's". The ending was a bit predictable, given the fact that the heroine have seen it already but, it was good nonetheless. Love it~

This was my favorite book in the series. The way Bo and Ridley's love grew was beautiful. The way they cared about each other was portrayed so well in the writing. The ending was perfect for the series and I am sad to see the series end. I look forward to reading more of M. Leighton's books!

This was fantastic conclusion to the Blood Like Poison trilogy! Every question I had was answered and the story was wrapped up perfectly. It was full of adventure and even more romance between Bo and Ridley. Perfect ending to the series.

Holy cow. I will come back and edit this review later, but fantabulous! Best book of the series, usually the final installments are somewhat of a letdown for me, but this was beyond great.
