Preview — Bleeding Hearts by Ash Krafton
The moment I picked up this book and read a few pages I was hooked, I had stayed up all night reading this and had spent a part of today finishing it up. It was totally a boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, girl falls for boy, girl finds power, boy goes fights enemy, and girl loses boy story. Mareck, was interested in Sophie the moment he met her, Sophie became interested in the first moment she had thought she met him. They dated for a but, then one night they ...more
For me this was a revisit to a book that captivated me and emotionally drained me as it gently made its way to a stunning climax and ending. The story was a reunion of sorts since I have missed the series after the concluding book. I wondered if my impressions would change since it wasn't new and fresh for me. Well, they did and they didn't. Of course, knowing the end from the beginning does affect how this re-read affected me and yet, I also found it easy to slip into the ...more
Ash Krafton starts this story off with the classic boy meets girl plot line. Then, as usual, the vampires show up and the shit hits the proverbial fan. And then finally, throw in a few unique vamp variations and Bleeding Hearts morphs into a riveting read. I particularly enjoyed the links to Egyptian mythology and the way that Sophie's hidden purpose is gradually unveiled. Unfortunately, Krafton also worked in one of my biggest fiction pet peeves: insta-love. It wasn't ...more
Sophie is capable of doing something I am not good at. She gives good advice and she tries to save everyone. She also has had a few people in her life that no matter ...more
first and foremost this vampire book this something special, none of the likes of which that has ever been done before. Everyone who reads books knows that ever since Twilight came out there was a big explosion of vampire books. Eventually, my friends and I became sick of them. Bleeding Hearts was, literally, a splash of cold water in the face. It was refreshing. This is why I read books, to enjoy and cherish them as long as I can remember them.

The biggest problem with the book in my opinion was the pacing. We start with a premonition in the opening chapter, and we don’t get any more information for almost a fourth of the book. Then we get a sudden reveal, and back to nothing happening for another fourth of the book. What in the world is supposed to make me get through this suspense? The ...more
Being my first introduction to Ash Krafton's work I am pleased to add this author to my ever growing favorites list! What started out a bit slow quickly changed course as the plot thickened & characters developed. Before I knew it I couldn't put it down as many of my favorite things continuously popped up along the way.
Bleeding Hearts has a vast array of paranormals that beckoned me in. Not too far in I was already questioning ...more
Ok so this was a first for me, this book was a DNF. I tried I really really did but it took me a week to get half way through and I still could not get into the story. The main character Sophie is an advice columnist for a magazine when on a personal trip to a museum she meets Marek and discovers the world of vampires and demivamps and what her place in it is ...more
I wish there was more to the week Marek kept coming to Sophie's apartment every night. There was much ...more
The history and mythology wound through and into this story is absolutely brilliant. Not only is it wound seamlessly into the storyline, but it is also ...more
The first 11 chapters introduces you to Sophie, her work, life, passions and cat and the chance meeting with Marek. At first, the feel of the book seemed to be chic-lit with mystery.
But then, BOY OH BOY wham the intensity of the book hits you and you are hooked, Sexy Demi Vamp and all the lure that drags you into this relationship, dark, posessive and mysterious.
The story is of a love, strong and trusting. Both Sophie and Marek bring out the best in each other and ...more

I was beyond speechless when I found out I had won the giveaway for this book on First Reads here on Goodreads. When I opened my mailbox and I had this book there waiting for me I was over the moon.
I felt the need to read it straight away though it took me almost a month to pick it up.

He seeks salvation. She’s driven to ...more
This a great start to what looks like a great series. Sophie and Marek meet at a museum. She can not get enough of his voice. There relationship goes from hot to hot and heavy.. Sophie is lonely so when Marek starts giving her attention she eats it up with a spoon not stopping to realize there are questions that need to be asked... Yes, I was given this for an honest review from RATR.... I enjoyed reading it so much that I am now renting ...more
