CBR III Review #67: My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking
I could probably start and end the review with letting you know it’s a vampire love triangle. That should be enough to make you decide if you want to read it or not.
Alice Bonham becomes involved with Jack and his family after Jack saves her and her best friend Jane from a possible rapist/attacker. For the record it’s impossible to read this novel and not compare Jack and his family to the Cullens. The only main difference is instead of a werewolf also vying for Alice/Bella’s attention Jack’s own brother has a strong connection to Alice.
Alice doesn’t find out Jack and his family are vampires for over half the novel so it starts to drag because it’s obvious from reading it what they are. Amanda Hocking is actually a pretty decent writer and I enjoyed her novel Hollowland, but the inevitable comparisons to Twilight while reading this novel made it impossible to truly appreciate it or enjoy it. There are three other books in this series so I may pick up at least the second one and see if the story starts to pick up a bit more.
