Blood Instincts by Marie Lavender is the second book in the Blood at First Sight series. Set in in 2042, this installment can be read as a stand-alone. It tells the story of Oliver King and Myah Sullivan. Myah is the daughter of Alec and Desiree whom we met in book one.

Myah is twenty-five-years old and married to her job. She works as an accountant and leads a mundane life. She dates intermittently, but is not looking for a long-term relationship. Orphaned at nine, her aunt and grandfather raise

Blood Instincts by Marie Lavender

“Blood Instincts” is set in the future world much like our own. Desiree, from book one, “Second Nature,” experiences a clairvoyant dream, which sets the tone of this story.

Myah Sullivan is twenty-five, and believes herself to be a strong independent human woman. Despite being orphaned at age nine and raised by her aunt and grandfather. She’s finished college and has an uneventful job as an accountant. Myah is comfortable where she is at in her life. Until she mee

Oliver is a vampire, he was a turned vampire, and he’s lived his life to the best he can. He hunts other vampires that don’t wipe their “donors” minds or kill the “donor” (bloodlust can be a problem if not watched)
But he misses his old family, and watched them from afar (until the line died out)
He’s having dreams (and Oliver never dreams) and feels he needs to be somewhere !!!

Myah is a normal human, she lives a normal life, she works and loves like a human.
But when she meets Oliver, he wakens

Blood Instincts (Blood at First Sight #2)

Myah Sullivan is an accountant, quite guarded & doesn't really trust or truly let people 'in'. It stems from the sudden & tragic loss, when she was 12, of both of her Parents in a car accident!💔😭 She had an idyllic childhood with them. Her Mum was an Author of Paranormal Romance & her Dad was an investor, he had a s
Her neck tingled and when she turned to look, she could almost sense a presence in the shadows.

Set in a future world, not too distant from our own, Blood Instincts is the sequel that will continue to give you chills, pushing you further on into the book. Blood Instincts is the sequel to Blood at First Sight. Since it is a sequel, I won't go into too much detail.

Myah is twenty-five and a headstrong woman. She has had her fair share of trials but before we find her in Blood Instincts, previous eve

Myah is just a normal girl who likes her life, as unexciting as it might seem to others. But she's lost so much in life, this is something she can control. Until she meets Oliver, and there's something special about him, in that he's a vampire. While Myah is drawn to him, for the first time in her life, it's all just too much for her. She can't be a part of his world, she wants to go back to the way she's used to things. But going back isn't always easy, and it's definitely less rewarding.

Myah Sullivan suddenly finds her whole life and future changed when she discovers that she is not entirely human and the world also contains what are described as Others who are dangerous supernatural creatures. Vampire Oliver King tries to show her everything and how to survive as she starts to learn about her own past. The question is can Myah handle this new reality and take on the role she was born to fulfil?

This is a charming story that definitely towards the end tugs at the heartstrings as

First let me state that I received an Advance Reader Copy, (ARC), but this in no way influences my review. I always leave an honest review. Also this author is new to me, and I hope it won't be my last.

Holy shiznet!!! This story was gr8. First let me say, I was unsure if I'd truly like it because at the beginning it was slow & drawn out. I almost gave up, I was so bored. But I trudged through and at the half-way point it took off. I'm so glad I stuck with it. Don't get me wrong, the writer knows

Blood Instincts is the second book in Lavender’s urban fantasy series Blood at First Sight. It can easily be read as a standalone novel, but there are definitely things that are referenced from the first book, so you might want to start there if you choose to dive in to the series. The main character, Myah, believes she is an orphan. She discovers during the course of the book that she is neither an orphan, nor fully human. With the help of Oliver (a vampire) she must come to terms with her new ...more

A wonderful sequel

In the first book, the readers were introduced to Alec and Desiree, and now, we get to know their child, Myah. The prologue reminds us that this is no ordinary connection. This is a romance about the undead, and the inhibitions of the undead. Myah is just realizing who she is, and she is "saved" by Oscar. Another great story from Lavender, and it doesn't take away from the first story, while creating a new story for new characters, and new adventures. It's about discovering one

I enjoyed the first book in the series, and the second book didn't disappoint either. What I loved most is that Myah was special, strong and stubborn too, not a weak heroine being wooed by a vampire. She and Oliver seemed a great match, and I believed their sizzling chemistry. This book was neither too slow nor too fast-paced for my taste, and put some nice twists to the common vampire myths.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily. I absolutely loved this paranormal romance. The storyline and characters are so arresting. The word building kept me reading from beginning to end.
