Technically Embraced By Blood could act as a stand alone book. The plot revolves around Alfonso and Lily, which was set up in the first book of the series, Bound By Blood. I haven’t read the first book, but there is enough explanation sprinkled in the second book that you are able to figure out the world London has set up.

I feel not reading the first book might have prohibited me from connecting to Alfonso and Lily’s story as much as I could have. I missed a very pivotal event in their relationship, when Alfonso pushed Lily away in order to protect her from the Blood Assassin that hunts him in the second book. The characters and story are well written, but there wasn’t anything about this love story that set it apart for me.

My favorite character was the villain , I would have liked to have gotten to know more about him. This book is a case of “just not for me”. I suggest readers check out other reviews if they are on the fence about reading this book.
