it was amazing

I just finished this book, it's the first of Miss Ashley's that I've read. I'd seen the book in quite a few stores and wanted to pick it up but it never quite happened. Then one day when I picked up a closing shift at my library I noticed it for sale on the donation sale shelf, "Uh 50 cents? I'll buy that! If it sucks it's new so I can always sell it on amazon for a good profit!" I thought. Well I'm definatly not gonna sell it! I absolutely loved the book! If I were to write a vampire novel, and believe me I've thought it through!, this what it would be like!! I'm definatly going to check out her other books! Wonderfully when I was shelving this morning at work I saw Bound by Blood on my cart. I grabbed that sucker up and stuffed it in my locker like there was a shortage!

But about the book, I loved the class and suave way Miss Ashley danced around the sex scenes, I thought the book was romantic and loving without the in-depth sexual exploits. And I like me some hot and heavy books too. But this romance was beautifully tasteful. That really was a wonderful point of the book. I really appreciated the relationship between Drake and Elena. I'm only 20 myself and I really appreciated the depth of love in their relationship. A weak point I found though was when Andrei had popped in to the castle to tell Elena and Drake of the loss of Katiya and Andrei's child, Andrei said forgive me and suddenly left. I thought that there was a twist in the works. Maybe Andrei and Katiya's baby hadn't died and Lilliana was holding the baby hostage as a ploy to get Drake to reinstate the laws he had denounced. Or perhaps Stefan had defected and something else with the baby in order to get Andrei to backstab Drake and Elena. I dunno. Maybe I read too much. XD

Anyway I loved the book and am very glad I passed up buying it at Walmart for a measly 20% discount only to get it for 50 cents later. It certainly made for a cute story. ;D

Samantha did u read the second book ?
it was freaking amazing xD

Erika Oh yeah, the next day I grabbed it at work. lol. It was pretty amazing. I did like the first one better though. I think it's because either I related better with the main characters of Bound #1 or because I felt the book portrayed them better. Whereas in the second book the POV was shifting between both couples and didn't give as much time to the main couple in Bound #2. I dunno, I haven't had my "wheaties" today so my mind isn't quite there yet. XP
