At A Glance
One of the best anthologies I have read.
I totally took this book to Jury Duty. It was awesome. 😀
Obviously, you have to love the Jane Yellowrock universe to enjoy this book. We get stories from different POVs through the many years within the series. I love me some Bruiser POV. Seeing Jane’s world through his eyes was freaking awesome. We also delve deeper into Beast, Angie Baby, and Molly. I gotta admit though, Rick intrigued me in his stories. I feel like I know him better, though I still hate him and he should die a horrible death! 😉 Team Bruiser! Just saying.
I am not going to go through each short story cuz that’s just too much but I can tell you they ranged from 3 stars to 5 stars, ergo 4 star average. I really, really enjoy the majority of them. The selling points are all those luscious POVs and the power Faith fits in such small packages. I laughed, I got all misty, and I bit all my nails off from stress. I like the mixture of emotion and intensity each story brought. I can’t wait to continue the series.
This book is looooooong. I usually love a big book, but so many short stories took it’s toll. I needed a lot of breaks.
Not much snuggly, and if there is any, it’s skimmed over complexly. We get nice sexual tension though.
I seriously enjoyed Blood In Her Veins. If you have not started this series yet, do so, immediately. UF lovers will die from awesomeness. Highly recommended.
