Book 1. I was tantalized by the mystery of her. The leech inside me came out to find prey, but found none in this enigmatic girl. I had more questions than answers, but one thing was unmistakable; although she released me from her embrace, her hold on me remained. Puzzled by his growing attraction to Chansey Leclaire, a human, he is unable to resist the captivating relationship that threatens to reveal his existence as a vampire.

Lucian is a continuing threat to Azrael and Ellie. A new threat, Calvin, is also looming over Ellie. Ellie struggles to figure out her path, even though it seems her fate has already been determined.

She faces new dangers as more people learn of her pregnancy. Obsessed sounds more like it. My advice? Pick up book one before reading Blood Jewel. But if not, Jump right in!!! Aug 16, Cameron rated it liked it Shelves: read-in Having said that, I feel that there are some elements that readers will enjoy and find interesting. There was a lot more growth on the part of the secondary characters this time around which was nice to see, though I would have enjoyed seeing more in Curry and Chansey as well. Solomon took a bigger role, Gia and Lairah also showed up more much to my pleasure, and there were a series of new characters to be introduced to which was fun.
There are new twists and surprises in this book. This is still a sweet romance story. I actually liked that this carried over from the previous book because I rather enjoy a subtle, easy romance story every once in a while.
Like the first book of the series, this was also a fast read. Once again, I loved the cover for this book. Whomever it is that Cates has as a cover designer, really does spectacular work. While some questions are answered in this book, I was still disappointed with how things ended because there are no satisfactory answers given to the questions brought up in this novel. So, while the concept is there lurking in the background of our minds, we are going to have to wait until book three for answers. Much like we had to wait for this book for the resolution between Curry and Marsala.
Events clearly are meant to carry over in the series, and while I like books that build on top of each other, I dislike those that make it so obvious. Jun 11, L. Olteano rated it liked it Shelves: blog-review , received-for-review , reviewed , book-tour.

As a personal note, I enjoyed more the first book, it felt tenser to me, and you guys know I'm a sucker for intensity in things. The Blood Jewel side of things was also very interesting, so the world building was cool because the author thought up interesting building blocks for it and weaved them together nicely. The characters were fun, Chansey and Curry and the whole crew were fun to watch. I found Marsala to be quite interesting, I liked her as an antagonist. Sadly, I can say I liked Marsala more as a character then the main couple, she was more charismatic, interesting, intriguing.
This might have to do with the fact that the chemistry between the main couple didn't really feel convincing to me.
They had the whole love-vibe going there, but relationships I like to read about are constantly tense and more edgy then lovey-dovey so for me those two just weren't tortured enough. Sorry, I know it sounds evil, but it's how I feel. The whole marriage and etc after that didn't strike me as a new approach or twist in the relationship arc, so the main engine of such stories wasn't really putting things in motion for me. I was curious to see what would happen, but I'd honestly have to say it relied more on the dynamics of the relationship from the first book then on this one alone.
I liked that the relationship evolved and became what a relationship naturally becomes, that felt like a dose of realism in the relationship arc and I very much so approved. If you're the type of romantic who likes the HEA happily ever after type of relationships that just seem to magically work from a point onward, I think most of the plot will work for you better then it did for me.
For me, these sorts of relationships don't strike me as very believable, so as far as the love story goes it was win some, lose some overall. The writing was approachable and flew well, but it had a wee bit of an epic tint for me, I don't know how to properly explain that. It just read a bit like an epic story, something about the tone maybe, the way the words came together, I'm not sure.
