Review: Blood Bound by Cynthia Eden

When it comes to killing vampires, werewolf Cade Thain is the best slayer in the Northwest. So when a witch hires him to take out a pureblood vamp, the assassin thinks it will be just business as usual. One less vicious vamp on the streets…one more undead parasite gone from the earth. Then he meets her.
Allison Gray isn’t the prey that Cade expects. Beautiful, innocent, she stirs a dark desire within him. Allison hasn’t transformed fully into a vampire, not yet, and it’s Cade’s job to make sure that she never does. Allison thinks that he’s at her side to keep her safe, but Cade is supposed to pick the right moment—and kill her.
Killing Allison is soon the last thing that Cade plans. As she begins the transformation that will turn her into a vampire, her bloodlust and their desire merge in an explosion of need that neither can control. But Allison’s enemies are closing in, and the coming battle will take Cade and Allison beyond life, beyond love…and into a deadly darkness that waits to claim them both.
Bound in Darkness.

I obtained the above information from Ms. Eden's website.

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not    judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

I was given this book for an honest review and my honest thoughts, so here goes...

I have only read a couple books by Ms. Eden and I have to say that in each story I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style. I guess you can say she is a kinda new to me author because I haven't read a whole lot by her. But still... This book made me want to go find more books by her and bury myself in her worlds.

This one was no different. Ms. Eden did an awesome job at drawing me in and making me read it in a day and a half. I turned off the cell phone, put a do not disturb sign on my door till I finished this one! This story has everything that a paranormal freak like myself loves...

Vampire, werewolves and witches... Oh my!

This story completely has it all... Action, drama, suspense, kick ass people, and some serious hot sexing! Ms. Eden made me miss my first true love... My first true love of reading... What drew me into reading... She brought me back to the days when vampires turned you on, werewolves make you pant with desire... The sexual tension, the biting, the claiming, the possessiveness.... The power struggle of what one's mind knows is right compared to what one's heart wants.

This story starts off with... deal. A death deal. Elsa, who when you meet her, you think is seeking protection. The protection from one woman who would destroy her. The deal she makes may actually cost her her own life. ((But you will have to read to find out what happens)) Ms. Eden brought out the emotions of this woman. I wanted to beat the crap out of her. I did... seriously. But I have to give it her for not giving up, lol!

Cade is not a man to mess with. But believe me.... I sooo wanted to mess with him. And I know you will too! Werewolf, pure Alpha... Bad Ass with capital letters. But at the same time, he is a man with a conscience. He knows a good woman when he sees one. And believe me, when he sees Allison all bets are off the table! Deal or no deal, he is heart, soul... and other parts of his body are telling him that Allison is not as she seems to appear.. And they all want her. No matter the cost... Even if it is his own head.

Allison is the deal... Dead not alive. Allison is human - or at least she was raised to believe she was. What is she... Well, I could be mean and not tell you... But she is something I love more than werewolves... She is a vampire... But not just any old half turned vampire... Nope, she is the real deal. She is a pure blood. Can you imagine being told a lie your whole life... Not knowing your full identity. That was Allison, until she had a date with a man she never met before. A man that would turn her world upside and inside out. One that would set her blood on fire and her body a blaze. But what will it cost her to have the one thing she wants most.... Her life?

This book is an amazing story. I have to hand it to Ms. Eden.... this brought me back to the things I love! It gave me everything and left me wanting to know more... Wanting to know if more things were going to go bump in the night... Would Cade be there to defeat the bumps.... Or would it be Allison who saves his butt... Why don't you go ahead and get the book and find out for yourself... You won't be sorry!
