I just finished the fourth book in the series (and will read the Letters to Elise book next).

Don't get me wrong it wasn't a bad book but it just seemed like repetition.

I have read every book in this series and have been checking almost daily for the Kindle version. I will not buy the book and have it mailed to me when I see it as all others were available on Kindle so this should be as well.. Come on Amanda... KINDLE KINDLE KINDLE... I am sure I am not the only one in this position.. Thats why I rate it as such.. You are not allowing your readers all access to the book. Now when it comes out on Kindle I will revise and give a true rating.

HOPE TO SEE ON KINDLE SOON!!!

I enjoyed the first three books of the series but this one I wish I hadn't wasted my time with. Like other reviewers, I expected something different from the fourth book of a series, not more of the same. I enjoyed the first third of the book because it finally developed the character of Peter and allowed the reader to know there's more to him than gorgeous good looks. But just as quickly as the friendship/relationship between Peter and Alice grew, the book quickly retreated back to familiar territory done to death in the previous three books. Alice feels guilty, Jack is angry and jealous, and Peter is tormented. Am I the only person sick of this plot angle in the series? As a reader, I have no clue if Alice and Peter would be a better match than Jack and Alice because they never spend more than a few minutes together before being interrupted by someone else. But I do find Alice and Peter's interactions more interesting to read about than Alice and Jack because I don't like the direction Jack's character has gone. What was once a sweet, endearing, playful young man in the first book turns into a jealous, controlling, dislikable character at the mere mention of Peter's name or presence. At least this book tries to improve upon the relationship between Peter and Jack. I did enjoy how Alice began to take charge of her own life and displayed some true independence and how Milo's character has developed as well. I may try to read the fifth book (if there is another one) but if it's going to be more of "Alice loves Jack because it's her choice not fate" than I may pass unless there is some serious character development in store for Jack. As of now, he just comes off as selfish, immature, and controlling. If you are a fan of the Alice/Peter pairing, you will not like this book and should probably save your money. If you love Alice/Jack, then you will probably love it!

I love the other 3 My Blood Approves books and so I couldnt wait to read this one, but was very shocked because it was not what I had expected for a fourth book to the series. It did answer some questions that needed to be answer but the one thing that I would have love to have read about was Peter. Yes, he does show up more in this book and is more down to earth with Alice but I would have love to seen Peter and Alice spend more time together without Jack always in the mix. I thought that the book reminded me too much of Twilight, with the love triangle but Vampire Academy, with Alice being kind of kick butt type chick and plus the whole half-breed thing too. After reading this book, I really dont see any hope of reading a fifth book because there would be no point because Alice is with Jack end of story.

I have really enjoyed this series. I do agree with some of the other reviews that the Alice and Jack drama is getting old, and I do think that Alice and Peter should hook up already... But it hasn't turned me off to the story. I want to keep reading it!

From a technical stand point, the editing has gotten increasingly worse... I don't get too hung up on the occasional grammatical error, but each book seems to have more than the last one. This one even went so far as to have the wrong name at certain points, causing me to have to go back and re-read to make sure I didn't miss something. Is anyone proofing this for Amanda before they put it out there???

I wouldn't take too much from the reviews that complain about it being too much like Twilight... 1) I enjoyed Twilight so why wouldn't I enjoy something similar? And 2) it still has it's own story line despite any similarities.

Overall, this is a GREAT series and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that likes this genre!,,

Even though this is 4th installment in the "My Blood Approves" series, it has just as much romance, action, mystery, thrills, twists and turns at the first 3.

Almost everything about this book was enjoyable. You get to see Bobby, her brother's boyfriend, a lot more and he is so SO likable. A lot of the story takes place outside of the house, as opposed to the other books where a lot of the stuff that went down was in it. Leif is still in it which was awesome because I liked him in the 3rd book. And there is a lot of closure for pretty much everyone that needed closure.
For me, Jack started getting annoying in the third book and really in this book. Maybe it's just because I love Peter. I was totally rooting for him the second Alice saw him in the first book. I had my 'Team Peter' foam finger and jersey on the entire time I was waiting for and reading Wisdom (metaphorically speaking of course). And I loved him in this book, especially in the end. He just comes off as a really great person and character.
There's a what is supposed to be a "big twist", but I had it figured out when we met this other certain character in the third book. Still a good twist, especially when it happens. The ending was satisfactory (except for the whole Peter thing). It pretty much answers everything, but Amanda still left it open just in case she decides to do a 5th book (which, in case there is any doubt on her part if she should or not, I vote yes).

I only had a few problems with the book. The grammatical errors for one. The swearing started to get a little too pervasive for my liking. And the sex scene. Although it was small and brief (insert immature 'that's what she said' joke here) I don't like them in YA. Not that I actually like them in anything.
But this is such a great series and I would highly recommend it.
