Book Description

FROM MEGA NERD to SUPER STUD

Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the "nerd" crowd certainly don't win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school's Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing?

Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a "come hither, Justin" vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she's no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees.

While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn't know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn't find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

5.0 out of 5 stars WITTY AND FUN! I enjoyed this book immensely! April 26, 2012
By La-la
Format:Kindle Edition
I was laughing out loud through the whole book. Witnessing our hero (Justin Case) dealing with typical nerdy teenager problems (bullies, unrequited love, man-boobs, etc) and then go through a supernatural form of puberty (turning him into a lean hunk of lust inducing studliness) was entertaining indeed!

It's not just a humorous tale though! Oh no! The author injected enough action, mystery, romance, and tension into this UNIQUE PARANORMAL STORY to keep me seriously immersed and on the edge of my seat as well!

Recommend to adult and teen readers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Will Knock Your Knickers Off!! FANTASTIC! April 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
For this review, I need my special pimp hat.

*Alana pulls out a purple Fedora with a long striped feather*

First, a little background on the story...

Justin is not you average HS boy playing football, instead the words nerd, and man-boobs come to mind... but then trouble begins with his family, and then his friends... next thing you know, he's no-man's-land at school except for the Goth crowd. He decides enough is enough, and starts to make changes.

But just as he's started, he meets this smoking hot chick at the gym. She's all 'come hither, Justin' attitude until she attacks him. She's not human. After experiencing a killer migraine, suddenly he starts developing strange powers. It's like he has this `panty dropping power' on any female he comes across, something every hormonal boy should want but not Justin. He's a hopeless romantic.

He has to figure out what is happening to him, even though it seems everyone else knows the rules of the game while he's still looking for his scorecard. Can he figure out the world he's found himself thrust into before others track him down and do worse than make him their plaything?

I. Loved. This. Book.

This is a fast, fun read that left me aching for the sequel. Sweet Blood of Mine is fantastic for adults and young adults alike! Justin transforms before the reader's eyes; starting as a shy nerd needing a "Man-zier" to seducing every female (including the readers) into jelly at his feet. SBoM manages to remain innocent and romantic, but enough `action' to steam your glasses.

It's laugh out loud funny and I highly recommend it to ANYONE who enjoys paranormal romance/urban fantasy

You simply MUST read this book. You may say, "But I don't read YA.

5.0 out of 5 stars I can't wait for book 2! April 26, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Remember that nerdy guy from high school? The one that needed a manzier and didn't mix with the popular crowd? Well, what if you found out there was more to him than meets the eye? Enter Justin Case.

Justin isn't popular by anyone's standards, and he's not athletic like the football jocks. But Justin has big dreams. Sweet dreams. He has heart. And he has a secret. Justin is really an incubus that has the power to seduce any woman around him. Sounds great, right? Not for someone who wants to hold out for true love and has no idea how to control his powers. Soon he's thrown into a total makeover, inside and out. There's a whole supernatural world out there that Justin has never seen, and he better open his eyes fast. There are plenty of things that go bump in the night that are happy to help solve all of his problems - permanently!

This is such a great book! It's well-written with fantastic characters. It's hilariously funny and heart-breakingly sweet all at the same time. There's action, mystery and a hero you just can't help but love. A great underdog story that will have you cheering for Justin from beginning to end. I can't wait to read more in the series!

Would I reread this book? YES

Would I recommend this book to a friend? Absolutely!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Funny! May 14, 2012
By Aflores
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was filled with a ton of AWESOME witty comebacks and sayings. I found myself laughing out loud through many sections. I was a bit on the fence on this book because of a couple different things, but it certainly was a funny read and most definitely different. There were so many different types of "creatures"...it was kind of awesome.

Disclaimers and such: I received this book from the group on Goodreads called: "Shut Up & Read" in their Read It & Reap section. So although, I received this book for free in exchange for a review, all thoughts are my own.

So first of all, this book is downright hilarious. The wittiness, the comments...it was just great to read something that was truly sarcastic and actually funny. That meant I took a lot of "screen shots" of some funny sections on my iPad while I read...I had to pick a couple favorites to put up here!

"I stood in the doorway for a stunned moment, unsure if my skills as Kings and Castles woodland elf had prepared me to take on a challenge like this. Nathan could pass for an ogre. His neck had more girth than one of my legs, which was probably why he was an all-star football player. It meant suicide to attack that monster."

And...

"A warm hand touched my neck. I shrieked like a little girl in a helium factory. Stacey stood behind me. Just great. Now they'd have a video of me screaming too."

Secondly, I felt the book was a little disjointed...written in two sections. The first half is this nerd being super bullied and not just by the football jocks...it was administrators, teachers, coaches...they ALL seemed to have it in for Justin. The second half I felt was the section where he finds out who he is, who his girlfriend is, who his dad is, who his mom is, etc. etc. etc.
