Okay so i will, willingly give this a 2.5
It's a fast, easy read. Unfortunately raging teenage hormones have gone ape-shit crazy in this book.
I thought that our main character Nikki would have some self-control, or be cautious of men after what happened to her mother - oh and her mother? Really. The only sensible one it seems was Nikki's twin Nathan.

Okay Let's start from the top. Nikki and her small, as she puts it - dysfunctional family - moves because the twin's father comes back to and attac...more

Oh my god, seriously? This was beyond rushed and WAY to cheesy!

Nikki was just a fucked up bundle or hormones. At one point I kind of excused her behaviour because I assumed she was being forced into her crazy assed feelings. Just to find out that the 'mind control' was forced onto her only once. So in reality she really is this stupid!

The monsters of the book were terrible. Completely lacking in skill of being whom I'm assuming they've been for a very long time. It seemed like a piss poor excuse...more
I'm not really sure how to describe BLUR. Parts were awkward, parts were cheesy, parts required an eye-roll in exasperation. The dialog seemed forced. I have two brothers and we have never, ever called each other bugger and/or twerp, especially not repeatedly and not at 16 years old. So you want your teenage characters to use curse words but then use childish "terms of endearment"? And how about the use of "jump his bones" and "jump Ethan's bones" a total of five times thorough out the book. Thr...more
Nikki and her twin brother Nathan have just moved to a new town after their estranged father attacked and raped their mother. Immediately upon arrival, all three have found some hot person to lust after. For their mother, it's local cop Caleb. For Nathan there are several girls, and for Nikki there's Duncan. And when Nikki begins working at the diner, she meets Ethan. When dead bodies begin turning up, Nikki hears rumors of vampires. Could Ethan be a vampire?

When I first started reading this, I...more
Sorry for any spoilers!!

This story is about Nikki and her twin brother Nathan. After their mother was very seriously injured they decide to move in another city in order to get away from danger.

As soon as they arrive to their destination bad things start to happen. A dead body, a suicide, dangerous and mysterious notes, pale faces, shadows, animals or something else lurking in the woods. Things are pretty intense and the two siblings want to reveal the true meaning behind everything thats goin...more
Downloaded this book because it was free on Amazon. I hadn't really read the plot summary and so when I reached a point in the book where it was clear that the supernatural beings were vampires, my first reaction was to roll my eyes and start skimming. Not another vampire syory, I groaned. However, I couldn't skim. I read through the book enthralled by the characters, even the sexy vampire ones...especially the sexy vampire ones.

I found that as the pages left to read were dwindling, that I was...more
Nikki and Nathan are twins who move with their mother to get away from their father. As soon as they arrive, they begin to notice that things aren't always as they seem. On their very first night in Shore Lake, Nathan discovers a girl's body at the edge of the lake. Over the next few days, things around Shore Lake escalate. Their neighbor comes and warns them that vampires are among them and to beware. When Nikki gets a job at the local restaurant, she runs into Ethan, a strangely intoxicating g...more
It's sad when "It has a nice cover" is the nicest thing you can say about a book.

Plot: thin and predictable
This book tries to do both horror and romance and fails at both.

Dialog: terrible
I don't know anyone who this way. Characters seem to agree about everything and then spend the next 2 pages talking about it. It reminds me a lot of Laurell K Hamilton (and not in a good way).

Setting: flat

Monsters: completely lacking in horror

Romance: awkward and cheesy ... etc.

The good news is I didn't have s...more
That's the amazon address to read the summary. Okay so this book was free on my Kindle and i can see why.

Plot: Twilight + Immoral Series = Blur. This story was mostly a rip off from Twilight but had some elements from Immortal series. The whole story was about a girl, her twin brother, and her mom who move to a new place to get away from a psycho dad. That's the only original thing in there. She meets a boy who instea...more
I downloaded Blur by Kristen Middleton to my Kindle a few weeks ago, because I was looking for a good read, and this one had okay reviews that left me hoping it was the book I wanted.

From the beginning, the writing in Blur isn't very good. But the book was a free download on Amazon, and the reviews weren't amazing. What was I expecting?

I kept reading.

The dialogue is kind of cheesy, and there are some facts, conversations, details, and phrases that are repeated several times throughout the...more
This book was so amazing! When I started reading this I just couldn't stop. I usually hate vampire books, but this one was so much different. Instead of making me turn away from boredom it drew me in. It was the perfect mixture of horror, romance, and fantasy rolled up into one book.
Nikki and her twin brother, Nathan, move to a new state with their mother after they go through a terrible experience caused by their father raping their mother and physically abusing her after a divorce. They think...more
Alisa Crump
Blur was amazing!!! It was very detailed and thrilling! In a way it was like twilight where two guys fall for a girl "Nikki",but that is where the comparison stops. I liked this much better than Twilight. The story is told by Nikki. She used to be shy until she met Ethan and Duncan, now she is more social making friends and working. With all the mystery, action and romance, I couldn't put the book down!!!
This was a fast paced NA PR. It is not really what i would class as YA as there are sexual situations/violence/and a whole lot of cussing.
The book was alright, a good way to spend an hour but it wasn't great.
I do not plan on reading anymore books in the series.
Laurie Franco
Another winner from Kristin Middleton! Fantastic vampire book, loved the characters, and I am half in love with both Duncan and Ethan! I am also DYING to know who is responsible for the murders of all the girls in town that eerily resemble Nikki! Love, love, LOVE IT! Also, as a side note to anyone who enjoys this book, and also likes zombie stories....or even if you aren't too crazy about zombies because I wasn't a fan at first....she also writes a truly kicka$& series about zombies called Z...more

Recommends it for: Everyone!
I started reading this book from a free compilation of books from the author. I didn't think much of it but as I got into the story I realized how much I really liked it! I know.. it's your normal vampire loves girl for centuries but the girl doesn't know story, but it was still so good! Maybe because I haven't read a vampire book in so long this one just kept me entertained!

It begins when Nikki and Nathan move to Shore Lake with their mother. Their father beat and raped their mother after their...more

I read a lot of reviews before starting Blur and I have to say there was a lot of negativity which at first put me off but i had downloaded it as a free eBook so still wanted to give it a go.

I am still in two minds about it, it started off well, i like that there is a lot of detail about what the characters are doing and the environment because for me it sets the seen. But the relationships between the characters is so so, i feel the mum who at first seemed to have been through quite an ordeal...more
Aoife Sheridan
Okay, this book wasn't for me. I feel my mind getting stuffy when I try to explain it, so I won't. Basically, I didn't find anything enjoyable about this book (except Nathan) a nice guy. But as for the rest - Nikki's mum a rape victim and she eyes every guy she sees, Nikki who found her mum after she has been raped and is jumping at every guy she sees. A town infested with vampires. yeah that's about it.

Simple, easy to read but not for me.
Alyssa Stephenson
The characters are not believable and the plot is thin. The "story" is rushed and unrealistic. Nikki "loves" two guys she barely knows in less than a week. The mother is supposedly raped, but immediately becomes involved with a new man in less than 2 months, and flirts with all the others that she sees. Don't waste money on this book, if you can even call it that.
Scott-robert Shenkman
I went into this book expecting a really good story. And I got it. Until The end. BIG GIANT CLIFFHANGER.

I hate those more than chicken pox. I will never touch another book by this author. Manipulation to buy the next book can sometimes get you the opposite effect.
My Dirty Romance
Despite some of the poor reviews given on this book, I actually liked it. Were some parts cheesy, sure. Did it move fast with how fast Nikki was falling in love with two very different guys, yes. But I didn't let that get in my way of becoming engrossed in the story and characters. Over all I thought it was a good read, especially since it was free. Before I pass my final judgment on this book, I want to read the rest of the books in the series first. I look forward to seeing how this story prog...more
I had high hopes for this book and boy was I disappointed. I can honestly say that I hardy ever come across a book where I just think NAH... not going back for book 2. I won't be recommending this to my friends.
This book was ridiculous. My eyes hurt from rolling them so much. It started out ok - but not even half way through the book everything fell apart.

There was just so much wrong with this book. No world building. Im not even sure what the plot was exactly.....
?¿?Nikki & Duncan love each other after maybe a week of knowing each other, she has a twin brother who likes to chase anything in a skirt, (but his love & protective nature toward his sister was very sweet) a vampire is stalking Nik
Blur was a quick easy read that allows your brain to take a vacation from a long stressful day. There were parts that were totally funny, some cheesy parts, and some parts were are you really that dumb? But it is easier to say don't be so clueless from looking from the outside in. I think I would have liked it a lot better if Nikki and Nathan were older than just finishing their Junior year of High School. Now it has been a long time since I was a teenager and times have changed, but I don't rem...more
It was okay. There wasn't anything remarkably outstanding about it. I did like the make-out scenes. Nikki is likable and so is Nathan. Maybe I'll read the next ones, maybe I won't.

Kitaptaki ateşli kısmını henüz göremesem de dişler kısmını gördüm :) İsimden de konusundan da araştırdıysanız türünden de anladığınız üzere bir vampirli seri...

Aslında bu türde kitaplar o kadar çok çıkmaya başladı ki her taraftan bir ara vampir fışkırıyordu şimdi biraz duruldu gibi gelirken karşımıza Ateşli Dişler çıktı.

ımm... kitabı beğendim mi beğenemedim mi bilemedim şuan. Kitaba karşı çok karmaşık duygular içerisindeyim. Kapağı evet çok güzel, yazarın...more

What?? (Spoilers alert)

I downloaded this book purely because it was free and if I'd paid for it I'd be requesting a refund.

So I'm 84% in and I'm giving up...

Reasons being:
So they get into their new town and tbh the beginning immediately sucked me in. I genuinely thought I was going to love this book as a quick read.
No. this was not the case.
So they immediately get jobs (how convenient) They immediately make friends (How convenient)
And their friend Duncan happens to be hot and fabulous and oh...more
Spelling errors, the main character is very loose with her affections and there is hardly a storyline going on...I have no desire to continue the series
Crystal Smith
Iowa didn't even finish reading it. Half way into the book every other sentence started with je$&s. and that to me is worse then a cuss word
This book was a really fast read, but it was also really good. I can't wait to read the next book.

“I turned on the television and watched a movie about a girl who’d fallen in love with both a vampire and a werewolf. I’d already seen it a million times, so my eyelids grew heavy, fairly quickly. Ten minutes later I was out cold in my bed and dreaming of Duncan, who turned into a werewolf and was trying to kill my own vampire boyfriend. Every time I tried to see the vampire’s face, however, it was a blur.” 3 likes
