I'd give this series 10 stars

Well so far if I could, I'd give this series 10 stars. My hat comes off to this Author J.L. Myers, what web's have been weaved on the pages of this book. We get a lot of questions answered, truths revealed and WOW. I was certainly taken back with some of the information. These characters are amazing, likeable with such depth and strength. The relationships of Ty, Amelia, Dorian, Kendrick and Vanessa just grow and become closer, it's friendship and love at it's finest

This is the second book of the series. It is about love, growing up, learning something new about yourself, friendships and other adventures of life.

Amelia is a teenager and a vampire. Like I mention in my review for book three of this series, book two also reminds me of countless songs. These songs are not in the book. Again, this song reminded me of this book.

For me, the best song about this book is “ Dream On”, by Aerosmith. Yes, Aerosmith is one of my favorite bands. Regardless, book two hi

Amelia's visions are getting worse, and every time she wakes up from one, she craves blood. Also, she is now bonded to her friend Kendrick, who is also in love with her, but she is still dating her boyfriend Ty. It is embarrassing for Kendrick to be able to see/feel everything that she and Ty do, and it makes Ty uncomfortable to have Amelia's best-friend-who-is-also-in-love-with-her to be spying on them all the time. Her mother is still against her dating Ty, but Dorian, Kendrick, and Amelia are ...more

She did it, again!
I was enthralled, enraptured, hooked, captivated,… I was so engrossed in the story the outside world didn’t exist anymore. Pure reader’s bliss.
This book is major stuff. If you like Vampire Academy and book alike, it’s right your alley. You have to read it!
I loved “What Lies Inside”, it was one of my best book findings of the year. I still think more people should know about it. Its only fault: book 2 was not published when I finished the first. I know, I know, I’ll never learn

This was NOT a book given in exchange for a review. I had received J L Myers book Fallen Angel in exchange for a honest review and it sparked an interest to read more of her work. I read Book 1, What Lies Inside, in her Blood Bound series and became a fan!

Made By Design, Book 2 in the Blood Bound series, caused me not to be just a fan but to become a major fan of Myers's work. Every character, no matter how large or small their roll in the plot, is described so well that not only can you obtain

Amelia has a lot going on. She is a vampire in love with a werewolf yet her soul is bound to her bestfriend Kendrick, who is hopelessly in love with her. To make matters worse, since Kendrick and Amelia are bound they can speak telepathically and Kendrick can see and feel everything Amelia does. So things get awkward real fast when Amelia is hot and heavy with her werewolf boyfriend Ty.
Amelia, Kendrick, and her brother Dorian were all tested on when they were infants by her supposed uncle Caius

Leaves you wanting more!

Lots of unexpected twists and turns. Characters you love and characters you love to hate. Can't wait for the next installment.
How can I wrap all my fear, love and dislike in one review? Well first off I just LOVE Amelia and Ty’s relationship. I’m team Ty all the way and I dislike when Kendrick tries butting his way in, but hey, he’s her best friend and I know she cares for him too. I also dislike Caius and I do hope he gets what’s due, even after that major bomb at the end. I swear this whole book was floating me up on cloud nine until the last quarter, then I was like ‘NONONO, WHAT’S GOING ON!’ and then yes, the end. ...more

Holly s@%t. Sorry for my French.
I seriously thought the first book was awesome, but boy this 2nd book doesn't disappointed one bit.
Amelia is one tough ass kicking girl. Love the chemistry between her and Ty, it's pretty awesome.
Secrets, lies, truths, half truths and so much more. At time's the suspense is so intense I had to put down this book a few times.
I can honestly say that J. L. Myer's did a superb job creating this story.
I feel so sorry for Kendrick in all of this, because of t

Just like the first book in the series, What Lies Inside, I got completely wrapped up in its sequel, Made By Design. This book had so many things going on to keep me hooked from start to finish. I didn’t want to put it down.

Book two delves further into the mysteries of Amelia and Dorian’s past, taking the reader on a rollercoaster of twists and turns, all of which had my eyes glued to the page and my jaw dropping a time or two. Then there’s the growing steaminess between Amelia and Ty and the c

I fell in love with the characters in the first one, and this was just as amazing as the last one!

J. L. Myers do NOT disappoint! I was thrilled to start on this, and I do not regret that I did.
I'm actually a small bit speachless. The plot twists and surprises are real in this one!
I feel for the characters and I'm kinda in love with Kendrick and I'm not sharing! Lol.

Anyway, to keep this short, this is going on my "favor

(Disclaimer: I was provided a copy of the book. I read it and decided to provide my honest review.) Made by Design, Book 2 of the Blood Bound series by J. L. Myers picks up where What Lies Inside left off. It doesn’t take long as you start to read that you can tell that the storyline’s depth and breadth have grown vibrantly. The world and character building have taken an exponential jump from book 1. The only thing I found off-putting was the constant scowling by Kendrick o

Vampire Amelia Athobry-Lamont is back home with a blood bond to best friend vampire Kendrick. Amelia may have survived Caius's attempt on her life but Caius has more tricks up his sleeve, and this time, he also wants to take the lives of the people she loves most. Amelia decides to fight back by training to fight and learning how to control her newfound power but nothing can prepare her for the chaos and devastion that ensues. This story ends on a cliff hanger.

I totally love Amelia Lamont, the star in J.L. Myers’ Made By Design (Blood Bound Series Book 2). And I love Ty - her sexy werewolf boyfriend - almost as much (equaled only by how much I hate Caius). If you want a perfect “coming of age” tale, and a perfect vampire paranormal romance, you won’t fid better than this very well written series and story. Read the publisher’s blurb for all you need to know. But for the fact that I’m literally dictating this review to my husband from my hospital bed I ...more

J.L. Myers delivers on the promise made in her first book in this series, and then some! The love triangle between Amelia, Ty and Kendrick intensifies by orders of magnitude, as does the evil perpetrated by her uncle, the vampire Caius.

J.L. Myers' foreshadowing is excellent without revealing what lies ahead. Her mastery of the elements of a good story shines throughout, and the ending of this book is, well, epic. There is no other way to describe it.

I loved this book and can't wait to read the

I was given a review copy, and this is my honest opinion. This book is not just sad, but heart shattering. Although truthfully, I'm team Kendrick but I also like Ty lol Ahhhh!! This book is action packed. You also get to see more of their powers, and questions from the first book get answered. But you will want to jump right into book 3!! The author has written the scenes brilliantly. It almost feels as if you're in the book and you can see what the characters see, feel what they feel, simply by ...more

A great second book. This author has a beautiful writing style. Explosive plot line and believable characters make this book so engaging that you can't stop yourself from laughing or crying with the characters. This book is full of suspense, mystery, drama and romance, and lots of action. It answers some questions left by book one, but leaves you wanting so much more and looking forward to book three. Ms. Myers continues to feed my imagination with an epic vampire story that keeps me at the edge ...more

Once again...I definitely did not see that coming!

I really enjoyed reading this book. The characters feel so real to me, and this is definitely an action filled read. Amelia, along with her hybrid boyfriend, best friend and brother... fights for what they believe in.

Lots of blood is spilled, and many secrets are revealed in this book. Readers that are interested in vampires and werewolves in adventures witnessed from a teens perception will enjoy reading this. I strongly recommend you begin th

Wonderful series! Loved book 1 and book 2 more. Amelia and Ty's story just keeps getting better. Their relationship is complex. Amelia is bonded to Kendrick. So much is going on with there emotions. Ty does not like Amelia's bond with Kendrick and Kendrick is troubled with Amelia's feelings towards Ty. Caius wants back his experiment (Amelia). J.L.

WOW! Amelia, Dorian, Kendrick, Ty, Troy and Marika still o a roller coaster ride. Vampires and Werewolves oh OMG. This book is still a great read for all ages. This book sparks all kinds of emotions and I will say I cried so hard during parts of it, I also felt like screaming sometimes. This second series is still a longer read then most e-books and well worth the money. Now to see what happens next. I received an arc copy for my honest review.

I really enjoyed this novel. The story extended very well from the first novel. I believe there was even enough pertinent details shared from book 1 that a reader starting with book 2 should understand most of what was going on. There was good relational components as well as a lot of suspense around who was involved with the murders of pure bloods and Lycans. The book ended with a cliffhanger and many other unanswered questions around the main characters. Overall a great read!

I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

Another great book by J.L. Myers. This Blood Bound Series is very very good. This is the second book in the series and they just keep getting better. The stories are well written, full of twists and turns that will keep you turning the pages to see how the story unfolds.

I can honestly say I recommend this book.

I just fall more and more in love with this series. I have got to quit reading it before bed. I stayed up all night reading this one. As usual the story continues to thicken as Amelia tries to figure out who and what she is. More twist and turns to throw you off and thicken the plot. I wish I had the next one already so that I could have kept going.

Book two in the series and it gets better and better. You cannot stop turning the pages as you need to know what happens next. As I said in the review for the first one this is not my normal read because of the romance aspect. But I have really got into them now. Cannot wait for the next one. I you liked the first one you’ll love this. Highly recommended must read.

Picks up after book one and just keeps going. I loved the interactions with Amelia, Ty and Kendrick. There is so much going on with these guys and their friends. Marcus is keeping tabs on Caius, but can they really trust him? There were a couple of surprises that I totally didn't expect and one that I saw coming. I can't wait to see what happens in book 3. ...more
