Fate - the second installment in the My Blood Approves series...

Alice Bonham thinks she's finally found a balance in her life between the supernatural and real life with her brother Milo. Jack - her sorta vampire boyfriend - keeps her at arm's length to keep her safe. As for his brother Peter... she's not sure where he's at, or what he wants with her. Worse still, she's no...more

I would have rated this book a 3 until the end. So much time was spent on Alice being isolated and miserable! I hope in the future books Alice is a more likable character. So far she has been whiny, self centered (EVERYTHING is about her), and sluggish. She has no drive to do ANYTHING! She has no interests, no motivation, no pizazz, nothing! All she does is sit around & feel sorry for herself. She can't even make an attempt to try to do well in school. She sleeps through her classes and lets...more

The more I read this series, the more I like it. I find that the characters have become real people to me, and I care about whats going to happen to them. There are some interesting things that happen in this book Milo has more time in the book, and you get to know Jane a bit better.

Top that off with learning more about the vampire scene and stalking vampires that are not as friendly as Jacks family, and I think this book will hold your interest.

I gave it 4 instead of a 5 because the grammar is...more
I wrote most of this review before I finished this book, so my first inclination was to give it a 2-2.5, but I upped it after the last ¼ of the book drastically improved.

Here’s my initial review:

Gosh, I’m not sure I can take any more of this series! The story improved as the book progressed, but Alice still bothers me so much! She’s so passive and never takes charge of her life. If she showed any inclination to do anything other than lay around and wait for Jack to call, I might enjoy this seri...more

I'm so glad I started reading this series! Just when you think you have the plot figured out, something comes along and changes everything for the better! I really liked where the author took "Fate".

The story started off fast with a shocking story line I never expected. I did think the middle part dragged slightly but the ending truly makes up for that leaving you wanting more!

I can not wait to read more of the Peter/Alice/Jack love triangle but I think I am secretly hoping Peter wins - even t...more
Jack starts to realize that he is in love with Alice after he found out that Peter has a claim on her. (Always count on a boy to realize their feelings for a girl when their territory gets threatened). Anyways...the big sucky part is that Jack and Alice can't be together because her "blood bond" dictates that she belongs with Peter and Peter has the right to kill her and Jack if Jack gets too friendly with Alice. This is really rough for Alice because her body tells her she belongs with Peter bu...more

I hate to write a negative review about this book because I really love this author, but this is honestly one of the most boring books I have read in a really long time. The main character, Alice, was very one-dimensional, and came across as very whiny. I didn't like her character for the same reason I didn't like Bella in "Twilight" - too whiny and way too obsessive over her boyfriend. Just because your boyfriend doesn't see you for two days is no reason to completely lose who you are. I do not...more
From the first chapter in this series, I wasn’t truly affected by a single word written. Don’t get me wrong, I liked a lot of events throughout both books but not a single thing was true or convincing. Sadly.

The idea of ‘My blood approves’ is good. And since, I’m a fan of vamps, I liked ‘my blood approves’. But, really, let’s be honest. All Alice did was whine about everything and about Jack not being close enough to her. It was just wrong. Anyways ‘my blood approves’ wasn’t that bad. It was al...more
This has been an unusual reading experience for me.

I'm sticking with the series, I think because I want to see where the story goes and if the writing improves - and I'm a little masochistic.

As it stands (after My Blood Approves and Fate), the writing screams amateur, which isn't great for a published work that you pay for.

The number of grammatical errors is shameful, Hocking uses a paragraph to describe what easily one sentence could and her characters all speak the same way - like teenagers. T...more

I can't believe I wasted my time reading this book.

Honestly, this book is nothing but ideas stolen from Twilight and, I felt for some parts, The Host. There is no plot, nothing that progresses the story. Everything's a cliche. I hoped--expected, even--that the the story would improve, and that the stupid errors would disappear and the author's writing would be better and not contradictive, but unfortunately, no such luck. If you ask me, I think Hocking wasted her time writing this book.

Alice d...more

I have consistently liked this series from book one to book two (and am currently reading book three). I really love how Amanda Hocking plays with the love triangle in a way that has not really been done before. I particularly liked the end, when that triangle came to a head and how the characters reacted. I love Jack, he is so endearing! I am so looking forward to seeing what happens in the lives of these characters.

The only thing I will say that was annoying to me were the incredible amount of...more
Huh I don't know how I feel about this book and I know that Jane has something up her sleeve I think she wants to become a vampire herself. The love triangle in this book is pretty intense and I am team Peter, yeah he was an ass in the first book and he only shows up at the end of this book but he was so sweet and common, honestly, he lost what he thought was the love his life however many years ago and all of a sudden this girl shows up and her blood calls to him and it is an instant attraction...more

FATE by Amanda Hocking (2 stars) She's an amateur, and it shows. You're a millionaire, Hocking, buy a damn editor. Jesus. Learn where to put commas, how to structure a sentence, and what is proper and improper grammar. It's really not THAT hard. There are thousands of websites that will teach you FOR FREE. Imagine that. I've quickly grown bored with the "woe is me" attitude the MC has. There is little to no plot in the whole book, and an editor (story and copy) is desperately--and I mean despera...more
I was sifting through the various recommendations that Goodreads provides, when I saw the first book in this series advertised and it was being offered for 99 cents. Despite the errors in spelling and grammar, from lack of proper editing, the storyline is superb.

There are more characters added to this second book, yet I wish the author had spent some time developing them and giving us a background of where they are coming from.

We are kept on the edge of our seats as the unexpected unfolds. Mil...more

Por que Alice es TAN pesada? la mitad del libro se la pasa durmiendo o llorando. De todos los libros que leí, siento que ella es a el personaje femenino que menos soporto. Todo su ser me molesta, llega un punto en que leerla se me hacia insoportable.
Tengo como un sentimiento de amor y odio con esta saga. Alice y Milo me caen muy mal, pero amo con mi ser a los otros personajes, y eso me hace querer seguir leyendo. No me gusta para nada como escribe Amanda pero en si la historia es asombrosa, per...more

Es un libro que simplemente quieres seguir leyendo para saber que va a pasar.
We'll this is the second book in the My Blood Approves Series. Alice is getting use to her new life, sort of. After Peter almost killing her and Jack almost telling her that he loves her - she is dealing.

Jack starts to realize that he is in love with Alice after he found out that Peter has a claim on her. (Always count on a boy to realize their feelings for a girl when their territory gets threatened). Anyways... the big sucky part is that Jack and Alice can't be together because her blood bond...more
I LOVE THIS BOOK!! Ahh it's so addicting. I'm adopting Alice's sleeping patterns thanks to this series. In the beginning when Alice was angry and upset, I was actually in a bad mood for her lol. I found myself snapping at my family for no reason other than I was upset for Alice. Crazy. I was seriously sucked into this book. It's almost 3am and I have to force myself to put my nook away now and not read Flutter yet. It's just so good! Okay I need to breathe and get some sleep. Lol I feel like an...more

I really do like this series and I already have book 3 and 4 to read, but I want to take a moment to think. I still can't believe Milo turn instead of her I didn't even thought of him been a vampire it just never came up in mind. Neither that Jane was going to find out.

At the end, things change so much, I thought they where going to wait 1 to 2 years for her to turn, but guess plan change :33
I have to admit, my best parts of this book are the one where Peter appear, it just looks like a really h...more

Call me crazy, but I thought the second book in this series might possibly be better than the first. Given the fact I downloaded all four at once and paid over $12 for them, I was slow to throw them out based on one book. I skipped through this one for the most part and it did not change my opinion......which is -- I wasted my money! I will not be reading any further in this series.
*3.5 stars*

Fate had more action, romance, and drama than the first book. Unfortunately Alice continued to be pathetic, helpless, and annoying like she was in My Blood Approves :/ -Jack and Milo are what saved this book for me! The ending was the best part!!! Things ended when they started to get good just like it did in the first book. It will be interesting to see what happens next.
Jen (A Book and a Latte)
Better than the first... still horrible editing, or rather no editing but I got over it. I finished this in one afternoon and downloaded Flutter, book #3 in the series. Seriously, it is way too easy to purchase books on the Kindle! Eh, it was cheap!
Loved this book just as much now as I did the first time I read it 3 years ago!
Peter has always had a way of making me adore him! <3
Wish Amanda Hocking would release the 5th and last book, because I am dying to see how she closes the series out!
Sara Freitag
This book took me longer to read than the 1st one. It was a bit slow for me until about 3/4 through. Then it got a bit better. I will continue the series to see how it ends. Not horrible, not the greatest but it is good.
Lisa Kessler
I really enjoyed this one as the plot thickens between Jack and Peter... Without giving away spoilers, I'll just say when I got to the end I had to quickly download Book 3!!! LOL

Fun book!

“I started zipping up my pants when something occurred to me.
"I'm wearing a purple thong."
"You're wearing a purple thong?"
Jack raised an eyebrow, but since I was drunk, I couldn't read on his emotions. I didn't know if it was an intrigued I'd-like-to-see-more eyebrow, or a disapproving you're-a-huge-slut eyebrow.
"Yeah. Wanna see?”
“An oblique angle,” Jack said, and his bout of jealousy was quickly replaced with glee. “Ha! I told you I would work that in!” 14 likes
