Okay, now to the review.
This book wasn't at all what I thought it was going to be, and I mean this in a positive way of course! This is first Sci-Fi Romance story I think I'ver ever written, and I think this genre just gained a new fan.
In Blood We Trust had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It started off exciting and ended just the same.
There was kind of a lull in the story where it seemed to drag, but I can only chalk that up to me being nosey and impatient. I wanted to know what was happening at all times, so when the story took a second to explain and give background, like every story should, I was like, "F***!" *insert eye rolls*. This is in no way reflective of the story because it is truly amazing, I'm just an impatient b***h.
In Blood We Trust is riveting and exciting and oh so frickin sexy. I loved the futuristic idea because it made me take a look at how the world is now and made me wish I was in 2078.
And Jordan and Aiden were amazing together. I was rooting for them from the moment they were introduced to each other. It was great to see their relationship develop the way it did. Jordan comes across as this badass, because she totally was, but it made it that much better to see how hard she fell for Aiden.
Overall, I loved everything about this story. It had everything! It can make you cry, laugh and wet at the same damn time. And ain't nothing wrong that!
This is definitely a must read story! So buy this book!
I felt like the futuristic aspect of this story was very realistic. It was subtle, not overdone, which helped add to the realism for me. Then there was the idea that, in the future, the cure for cancer is not without its own side effects, which turn people into virtual, real-life vampires, and not in a sci-fi kind of way. I also found it so believable the way that the agency who created the Cure kept the money coming in, so typical of that industry as we know.
Then there was the romance. My favorite part of any good story, the Romance in this book was just the right amount of build-up. It wasn’t “insta-love.” It took them some time to work up to the good stuff, and the good stuff was very good!
There was a good amount of depth to the characters in this book, especially the main character/heroine who we follow from start to finish. Her past and how it shaped her as a person, I felt was consistent throughout the book, and I felt like there were several things that made her very relatable. I was able to really sympathize with her and like her from the get-go. The stakes were set high immediately, and I was rooting for her to succeed from page one.
I also found the pacing of this story to be just right. There was not a single point in this story that I can remember feeling like it was lagging in any way or wanting to skim over.
Overall, this book is well worth the read. This is a book I can see myself rereading again. Very good work and well-deserving of every one of the 5 stars.
Oh gosh this was such a good read, it was brimming full of action on every page, you could imagine life being just like this in years to come and it was scary how true to life this could be.
There was some violence and sex scenes in it but I feel this made the book so much more intense than if they had been left out and added so much more to the storyline. I was pulled in to this book from the first page and read it right through until gone 3 in the morning, there was no way I was putting it down until I'd read it all!
The story brings out so many emotions in you because you feel so much for Jordan, she's been through so much yet still can't trust or let go of her past. The prologue says it all and more, it had so much left unsaid and to your imagination you just had to find out what happened.
She is such a strong character you feel a bond with her from the start. I've not read many futuristic books but this has something in it that's real and a different slant than the last futuristic book I read, both brought out so much in my imagination and left me wondering what if.....
Aiden is the Lieutenant and he has an instant attraction to her, Jordan is sworn off men especially ones she works with but that doesn't seem to stop him from trying. Jordan refuses to be worn down no matter what her feelings, after what's happened in her past, she's kept it to herself, she can't tell anyone or they to might be in danger like she is, always looking over her shoulder and never feeling safe, it's locked away and she is scared of it resurfacing and her having to face it again she just isn't strong enough.
She hates the system more than life itself having to give blood every week to help keep recipients alive, some are luckier not having to "donate" as often but with her blood being rare she has no choice. It's so unfair and she thinks the system should change, it's not a "donation" it's forced and if she doesn't turn up she'll be fined our worse her life is ruled by it, not being able to sleep in or drink alcohol the day before, her blood has to be prefect for those that need it.
She hates that people are being kept alive because of the "Cure" how can it be so good if the only reason you're alive is because you drink someone else's blood? She hates seeing people drinking the blood and it makes her nauseous seeing it, not understanding how others aren't bothered by it she tries to keep her feelings to herself and only a few friends really knowing.
This book had my head reeling there was no let up in the action, you were second guessing every character wondering who's side they were on, and as Jordan was you were wondering who else was involved.
The characters were brilliant and there was so much detail put into the book you could see it happening in your mind's eye.
God the second guessing I did not trusting anyone along with Jordan, she felt trapped and has to do this one case that was asked of her, even if it wasn't really police business the last lieutenant had passed it on to her so she would see it through, she just hoped she'd be alive to see it ending.
The characters had depth to them and were "real" to me as I was reading it, crying when I couldn't hold it any longer, I felt on the edge on my chair the whole time I was reading the book, my nerves were frayed by the end but omg what a read, this is one book I will read again and again. This author is one to watch, and for her first book she did a phenomenal job.
I really hope she writes this as a series. It is a stand alone but this is one that I would love it being made into a series for me to follow the characters as they grow. But that's me just hoping it carries on with it being such a brilliant read. It's a long time since I've lost it in a way I did reading this book. I was there with Jordan, the hairs on my arms were standing up, and I had goosebumps all over me reading the details of what was happening, holding my breath with everything crossed that the good guy comes out unscathed, but never really knowing until the very end who truly wins.
She's done so much to the characters that they are real, you can see them in front of you and you know how Jordan's mind works by the end of the book, or you hope you do. My god if I could I'd give it ten out of five! It is in my favourite collection now.
If you don't read any other book this year and you are 18+ and like action, mystery, dystopian romance type books read this one! You won't regret it I promise.
