This refers to the Kindle edition of this book. I cannot speak about the hard-copy version as I have not seen it. First off, let me say that I love the story line in this series. The characters are great. It's entertaining, fairly fast-paced, and has kept me wanting more from the word "go." If it were just the STORY LINE of the book I was reviewing, I would have given it five stars.

That being said, I almost stopped reading about 1/4 of the way through the FIRST book. The grammatical errors, TERRIBLE sentence structure, jumping from first-person to third-person within the same paragraph, poor proof-reading, and poor editing were enough to drive me insane!!!!!!!!!!!! It gets worse in the second book and at least through the fourth book, since that's all that I've read so far. Don't get me wrong... my spelling is not always perfect, but just using spell/grammar check on this would have helped tremendously!!! I just am one of the people who happens to believe that a book is a complete package. The story is just part of that package. In order for it to be complete, everyone involved in creating said package has to have done his/her job to the best of his/her ability. This just is not the case with this series. Given two days and a red pen, this book/series would have been soooooooo much more readable!

I came across Amanda Hocking whilst browsing for a cheap book to read. I was hooked instantly. My cheap discovery led to buying all of her books within a couple of days, which I might add was still a cheap purchase in total. This girl can write. Yes there are a few editing errors within the book but the storyline totally forgives this and after discovering that Amanda Hocking is self published, who cares about a few errors. This girl deserves all the success that is coming to her and I totally believe its coming.

The book itself is worth the leap of faith to read if you love or even just like a little bit of YA Paranormal or Vampire series then jump on board with this, I'm not going to give away any of the storyline as I find too many reviews do this. Take the chance, you'll love it and you'll love every book that follows, leaving you in suspense for more. Once you finish with this book make sure you check out her other books, I didn't think they would be to my liking but was hooked with them all.

Addictive reading does not explain it.

Format: Kindle Edition
Having finished the book last night, I needed to sit on the story for a while and really consider what I'd just read. And the simplest answer I could form was something amazing; the blatant answer would be phenomenal. In the second title in Amanda Hocking's My Blood Approves series of books, the story immediately twists into a more serious and darker tale for the book's heroine, Alice Bonham, as her 'future plans' accidentally go awry and the stakes are raised to an entirely new level.

In the first book, Alice meets Jack Townsend and his charming family, who happen to be rich and commendable folks in the neighborhood. It doesn't take long to realize that Jack and the Townsends are vampires. Alice knows that she wants to become a vampire, but her obligations to her younger brother, Milo, keep her from acting so hastily. She inevitably falls in love with Jack, only to run into a monumental complication named Peter, Jack's older brother. In the second book, our leading lady finds out just what it means to become a vampire.

The second book is, in a nutshell, Alice deciding whether the path of a vampire is really the right path for her to take. She asks herself whether this is really the life she's meant to live, and these reflections are starkly exampled in metaphorical events that make her realize, for the very first time, that vampires aren't human. After this dawning revelation, Alice then understands for the first time that Jack and his family aren't human.

After she realizes that the Townsends are predators, new shades begins to unfold about the characters. We learn of patriarchal Ezra's past, and see that even now, although he behaves and acts pleasant for the most part, he has very cold and uncaring moments.

I was enticed to purchase this title, as it was available on the Kindle for a very low price. Though I preferred the originality of the changeling series, this series succeeds in the realistic portrayal of a teenager's angst and growth. I did recognize some close similarities to the Twilight series (house of close vampire "relatives" who take on a loner girl with an amazing gift/power), but enjoyed the story line regardless.

I absolutely LOVE the My Blood Approves series! I have read this series at least a half a dozen times since I bought it in January! I love Jack and Alice together, but also am drawn to Peter. But ultimately I do believe that Jack and Alice are the perfect couple! I am a fan of the Vampire Diaries books and Twilight books and I must say this series blows them out of the water! I cannot say enough about this series! If you haven't read it yet- I highly recommend it!!! I wish I could give it MORE than just 5 stars! The only complaint I have is that the book Wisdom (the 4th series isn't available on Kindle and I had to order it) I really wish Amanda would come out with the final book of the series titled Swear, but from what I hear that may be a long time before it is released, if at all, according to her website. But in the mean time I recommend to anyone who loves a great vampire love story- read all the books in the series My Blood Approves, Fate, Flutter, Wisdom AND Letters to Elise - all those books in this series are great!
