Dirty Blood series. Start the series for FREE when you subscribe to my newsletter! The writing was engaging, the characters were well developed, the plot was tight, and the editing was superb. Had I not already known she was a self-published author, I would have assumed she had the forces of a big time publishing house behind her. I can honestly say that I loved this book.

I got the inkling we might deal with him again when I read his description: brown hair, artlessly mussed up, brown eyes with golden sparks, muscled body, but one can never be sure in my profession, right?
So I waited and then, after a very short time, I struck gold. He was stalking a girl, yes, once again, and her name was Tara. He went into her house several times completely unannounced - sometimes through the door, sometimes through the window.
He never bothered to knock. He was a controlling ass And yessssssss He could read minds and manipulate memories. It's him. The characters, ALL the characters were cardboard flat copies of different Twilight vampires and let me say that those weren't exceptionally well-rounded to begin with. Apart from that the author seemed to be rather at loss how to make this novel logic and distinguishable.
The main heroine is repeatedly lied to by: her mom, her grandma, her boyfriend, her would-be boyfriend Wes. They do it to protect her, a born Hunter, against other, 'bad' werewolves. Yes, instead letting her train as she was supposed to, they endanger her life because it's their idea of 'protection'. Well, last time I looked knowledge was power, not ignorance and stupidity At the very beginning Tara kills a werewolf girl called Lilian.
Yes, the girl attacked her and yes, Tara was just defending herself but she kills her nevertheless. What's her reaction and what other weres think? Then he makes Tara forget the whole incident for 'her own good' of course, and then we are told that it was practically ok.
Although Lilian was one of those 'good', bunnies-hugging werewolves who want world peace and social benefits for everyone, her killing wasn't Tara's fault because she simply couldn't help herself.
Lilian was a blonde and a traitor anyway. Or almost a traitor because nobody had any tangible proof at the time of her death. Apart from that only a baddie, Leo, mourns her. No big deal, right? Remember, Cullen doesn't do blondes, one more, one less, just a cannon fodder The last remark.
I almost died of evil laughter when Wes announced to Tara that she was his destiny. That's what entitled him to enter her room unannounced whenever he wanted to, that's why he was drawn to her from the very ugly beginning, even though she killed a girl in cold blood right before his eyes.
She was his destiny, it explains everything. For that sentence alone Cullen deserves a slow, painful death by sunrays, werewolf or not and if you've heard a sillier excuse to stalk anybody do let me know. Just let me say this: the less I read such novels the more happy I am. You have been warned. View all 11 comments.

There are parts of this story, particularly dialogue, that I wonder if the author started up after a crappy night's sleep. Who knows. Pity the editors weren't up to the task To balance that out, there are parts that read just fine.
The main character, is OK, although I wouldn't call her completely likable. But then again, she is a teenager. The romantic interest is pretty much of the same ilk.
He is supposed to be conflicted, and on the whole, I don't believe this cam There are parts of this story, particularly dialogue, that I wonder if the author started up after a crappy night's sleep. He is supposed to be conflicted, and on the whole, I don't believe this came off too well.
There are many factors in this that are a total cliche. Having said all this, it isn't all bad and I will give the next book a chance and see how it goes. View all 7 comments. Sep 05, Anne rated it really liked it. I hate the cover, but really enjoyed the story, much more than I thought I would. Jul 01, Chelsea Fine rated it it was amazing. Dirty Blood was incredible.
It is VERY well-written and a completely original take on werewolves. I was sucked in from page one and couldn't wait to get my hands on the sequel at the end. The heroine, Tara, is strong, intelligent, capable and easy to relate to. And Wes, the smokin' hot love interest, is worth every word. I believed in Tara. I wanted to make out with Wes.
And I was captivated by the storyline. Destined love, forbidden love, mysterious love On a cold frosty night Tara finds herself abandoned and no way to get home, so she decides to catch the bus.
Where do I even begin with this one? Let me tell you about this fabulous lady before I get into how amazing the entire Dirty Blood series is. I had one little book out, The Compounders, and attended as a reader. I met a lot of amazing authors there, but there was just something about Heather that made me comfortable enough to very awkwardly share my book and even give her a copy…. She helped me through so much more than she probably even realizes and will always hold a special place in my heart for it.
