Book 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"

My Blood Approves (My Blood Approves, #1)

I absolutely loved this book.  It was amazing & completely addictive.  I couldn't stop reading & had to abandon my chores in order to follow Alice along her journey. 

This follows Alice, an ordinary 16 year old girl.  She finds herself in trouble & to her astonishment a boy comes to her rescue.  Jack saves her life from a bunch of boys that were going to attack her & then they find themselves "bonded" to each other.  From this day forward, they can't spend a day without seeing each other.  Jack is very cryptic & won't exactly tell Alice about himself.  His winning line is "it's complicated".  This frustrates Alice to no end & she keeps pestering him for answers.

Alice meets Jacks family & discovers they are perfect in every way.  She meets his younger (?) brother Peter & has an instant uncontrollable painful attraction towards him.  Peter refuses to accept his feelings for Alice. Plus Jack is in love with Alice too.

There is a huge issue with Alice & her brother Milo.  Milo is worried about Alice spending too much time with Jack & forgetting about her school work.  Alice is only concerned with Jack, his family & finding out their secret.  Milo has a secret of his own & Alice confronts him as well, but this only brings them closer together.

This is of course a 5star rating & I had to start Fate (My Blood Approves #2) straight after to find out what happens next.  Highly recommend this to everyone!!
