Review--My Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking

Teenager Alice Bonham's life feels crazy after she meets Jack. With his fondness for pink Chuck Taylors and New Wave, he's unlike anyone she knows. Then she meets his brother, Peter. Even though he can't stand the sight of her, she's drawn to him. Falling for two guys isn't even the worst of her problems. Jack and Peter are vampires, and Alice finds herself caught between love and her own blood.

Amanda Hocking's My Blood Approves is sort of a Vampire Diaries meets Twilight. There's vampire family love, there's two irresistible vampire bros the girl is caught between and yet it was still a rather good read! As you know I'm not really a Twilight fan, but I wasn't disgusted or annoyed with this book at all.

Some parts were a little "eye-roll-y", but that can happen with any book when something eye-roll worthy occurs. Basically here the story goes that Alice finds herself falling for Jack the vampire and once she finally learns that he's a vamp still wants to be with him. 

Yet there is some strange connection between her and Peter, his vampire bro and yet Peter doesn't seem to want her. There's still a connection between them that even he acknowledges, but tries to deny.

The storyline is kind of simple and sometimes predictable as teen vampire romance goes, but again it was still enjoyable. And the ending, while not cliffhanger like, still leaves you wondering what choices Alice will have to make. Sure, some were made here in the first book, but you know that's not the end. Especially with 3 other books in the series. I definitely will have to add these to my Kindle as soon as I get my TBR pile down a few books!

Overall rating 3.5/5 stars

You can read this book on Amazon Kindle for only .99!! What a deal!
