Bound by Blood is the third book in the Crescent City Wolf Pack series by Carrie Pulkinen. It could be read as a standalone, but seriously, do yourself a real favour and read the other two books, because they are spectacular! You really won’t regret it!
As I’ve said with each of the previous two books, I am completely in LOVE with this series, I have devoured each one in a matter of hours- glued to the pages from beginning till end- torn, in that I really had to know what happened, but at

Bound by Blood (Crescent City Wolf Pack #3) by Carrie Pulkinen was a fast paced, action packed, steamy romance, that had me hooked from start to finish.

Not my first read by this author or in this series. I am addicted to these books! I will tell you that though these read as standalones, there are major spoilers and backstories from the other two books. So I highly suggest reading them before this one. That and, they're freaking awesome as well.

I've been waiting for this book, right from book

Bound by Blood is Book 3 In the Crescent City Wolf Pack Series from author Carrie Pulkinen. This is my third read from this author and yet she still continues to surprise me with how brilliant each book is and how she captivates me even more with each book in this series. I can’t wait to see what else she brings to this series. While these books are written as part of a series, you can easily read these as stand-alone but I highly recommend that you read in order just for you to enjoy this incre ...more

Let me just say that I love this series. The characters are well rounded and likeable. They have the same insecurities as we do, which makes them relatable. This is book three in the series and I suggest you read part one and two because they are just as amazing as this book. This story focuses on Bryce and Alexis.

She hasn’t ever wanted to stay in one place, not even for her sister, until she gets to know her sister's former partner Bryce.

The Crescent City series is amazing and I loved Bound by Blood. From the first book I kinda had a crush on Bryce. He is a really sweet, caring guy but also has a wicked sense of humour. With Alex's past I can understand her reluctance to get involved and even how she feels about herself but I can't believe it took her as long as it did to be won over by Bryce, I would have been putty in his hands from word go. Although to be fair to her with an ex that psychotic it would be pretty hard to trust ...more

Bound by Blood by Carrie Pulkinen is a must-read paranormal book! I completely devoured it in one sitting as I got so swept up in the story and I couldn’t put it down. This is the 3rd book in the Crescent City Wolf Pack series, a series that I would highly recommend! This paranormal series has it all, from werewolves and witches, captivating storylines, drama and of course each book is action-packed! There isn’t anything about this series that I don’t love!

What you don’t know can definitely hurt you ...

Carrie Pulkinen is back with the third book in her excellent Crescent City Wolf Pack series. This time, in Bound by Blood, the stars are New Orleans homicide detective Bryce Samuels and rogue shifter Alexis Gentry. Alexis’ wolf May be insisting that Bryce is the one for her but he doesn’t even know werewolves exist, and he’s in danger he can’t even understand thanks to her sadistic and deadly ex, and, oh yeah, a possible pack war.

Alexis and Bryce

Alexis, Macey's sister, has still not joined the pack and remains a rogue in name.. she's not yet figured out her place in life and keeps running away from anyone who gets too close. She's drawn to Bryce, Macey's old partner, and is trying to convince herself that he's not her mate.

Bryce is equally drawn to Alexis and even asks for her number when she flees town again. Her years living alone and without anyone to guide her have been hard but even though Bryce appears to have it a

Alexis & Bryce story

Now we know Alexis is Maceys sister and Bryce was Maceys police partner before he earned a promotion.
When Bryce & Alexis first met in book1 there was an instant spark!

Alexis had been a runaway since she was 13years old leaving Macey behind in the foster homes. But she never forgot Macey and tried to find her several times.

Bryce got a new job, worked hard for a promotion leaving Macey on nights while he started talking to school kids about anti bullying campaigns. He feels Mac

LOVED THIS STORY👍👍👍👍👍

Bryce and Alexis were both such interesting and likeable people. I loved this story. It was one of those type of books for me that I couldn't put down. One of those "I'll read just one more chapter type books" when you should be doing other things 😁. The action was non-stop. The twists and turns just kept coming. Bryce was such a sweetheart.... So kind, so protective, and deeply caring of other people. Alexis was tough on the outside but fiercely protective of those she love

Bryce has gotten a promotion to sergeant and transferred to negotiator. He met his former partner Macey's sister prior to Macey's wedding and he has been intrigued with her ever since then. When he talks his tenant young Michael off the ledge he goes to the hospital with him where he learns of a supposed suicide attempt by Macey's sister. He wants to help

We are back with the pack and it’s all about Alexis. She is one skittish wolf. I didn’t really understand why she kept running but once you get into the story you see how she lost herself. Bryce never gave up and Lord I like that in a man. He went after what he wanted and eased so many fears. Women put up so many walls once they have been hurt. It takes a brave soul to fight a battle he might lose. The author once agai

Well this is it. Bryce and Alexis (Macey’s sister) have a hot and cold relationship they both want each other but neither will go after it. When a chance encounter at the hospital bring them together things get hotter and the drama begins. With the perfect amount of drama and a unique storyline that v ...more

I loved Bryce's story. I liked him from the first book. He had a slight understanding of Macey's gift, but no clue about the shifters and that is how it was supposed to stay. He was drawn to Macey's sister Alexis from the beginning, but she is a rogue and not the settling down type. I liked how Bryce was willing to accept whatever she was offering, even if it was only sleeping on his couch. This book is exciting, terrifying, aggravating and wonderful. Alexis and Macey have so many secrets from B ...more

Another great addition to the Crescent City Wolf Pack series and once again we are taken on a thrilling ride

This story is a little unusual in that the heroine is the shifter and the hero is a human police officer who makes it his job to protect all he comes in contact with. Bryce Samuels is a homicide detective but now he has been promoted and he will be protecting people the one he would like to protect is Alexis Gentry but no matter how many invitations he extends she doesn't appear interested

Carrie Pulkinen's Bound by Blood is the third book in the Crescent City Wolf Pack series. This paranormal romances features secondary characters that have appeared earlier in the series: Bryce and Alexis. I like how this story is slightly different with the female being the "wolf" of the story. However, that doesn't mean Bryce doesn't carry a strong, typical male presence here - he certainly does. The tug and pull of these two is ever present and it makes reading the story intriguing and enterta ...more

Bound by Blood is the third book in the Crescent City Wolf Pack series. This book can be read as a standalone, but the previous books are spectacular reads so I recommend reading them as well. Once again, the author has created an engaging story. There is not a bad book in this series and Bound by Blood has added a great dimension to the Crescent City world. One of the things that really grabs you in these books is the expertly written villains and the way the heroes/heroines handle them.

Carrie Pulkinen is a paranormal romance author who has always been fascinated with things that go bump in the night. Of course, when you grow up next door to a cemetery, the dead (and the undead) are hard to ignore. Pair that with her passion for writing and her love of a good happily-ever-after, and becoming a paranormal romance author seems like the only logical career choice.
