This book isn't like "Keys to the Repository", another novella in the Blue Bloods series; no, it includes 3 never before seen short stories revolving around Oliver Hazard Perry and Freya (a main character in the Witches of West End series); Allegra and Charles; and Schuyler and Jack.
I can't say the novellas in this book are "make or break" for this series, but they are interesting. If I had to rate them, I'd give the one about Oliver a 4 out of 5; the one about Allegra a 2 out of 5; and the one about Schuyler a 2 out of 5. They were a very quick read, around an hour, and the book was cheap.
If you have the time and some extra change, I recommend this book!
So this is the second and last novella for the Blue Bloods series and I loved every last minute of reading it. Granted I could have probably finished it on Friday or Saturday but I finished it today. A Sunday. Mostly because yesterday, Saturday, I was busy helping my mom with planting flowers and stuff. Which was so fun and I was so tired after that, which isn’t good since that means I’m out of shape, that I didn’t have a chance to read. But today I did and I finished the book.
What I like about this book is that, despite it being short, we got to see a whole lot of other things. Like for instance in Oliver’s part of the book how he went from becoming a familiar trying to make it on his own to going back to that blood house to become a familiar but didn’t. We also got to see Freya. I liked how Melissa de la Cruz tied that into this series and into her Witches of East End series too. The other thing that I liked about it was the middle part had Allegra meeting her husband and seeing something that would happen later on in her life. Granted it did happen despite Gabrielle trying not to. I liked though how different Allegra and Charles was, unlike Abaddon and Azrael who were both kind of similar, even though I would have liked to see more of Allegra and Charles in the actual books. The last part I liked was of Schuyler and Jack. Those two are so cute together and I am happy that Jack, Abaddon, was finally able to find someone that he truly loves. Despite what he says during their bonding day about when they were all cast out of heaven.
What I didn’t like was, well more of is, that Melissa likes to torture us with the fact that Jack and Schuyler might not get to be together anymore despite them bonding. I mean I know that I’m not completely done reading the series but I also hope that maybe, hopefully, some of these characters in her books get to have a happy ending. But that is all that I dislike for right now.
Melissa de la Cruz has made another excellent book despite it ONLY being a novella it’s still a good one. And I’m sure when I get the last two books of the Blue Bloods series I will like them as well. I mean to me it’s kind of hard not to fall in love with this series. Or, in my case, almost any book I read I fall in love with. Okay I can give you a few books I didn’t like but it’s only a few. But this series and these books I have indeed fallen in love with them and I can’t wait to read more of Melissa de la Cruz’s books. Oh and I give this book 5 stars.
Oh and don’t worry everyone I am coming up with a rating system.

The first story was about Oliver, Schuyler's best friend. He is in so much pain from the breakup that he considers going to the blood house to get the Sacred Kiss that way. At the pub, he meets Freya. Only Freya is not at what she seems. They hook up for one night, one time after he eats the eggs. He is no longer in pain over Schuyler. He can think about her without feeling the loss. Freya turns out be a witch and she cast a spell on the eggs. She helped him.
The second story was about Allegra and Bendix, Schuyler's parents. It was so nice to get this background information on how they met. They were so cute and sweet together. I hope I get to learn more on what happened where it left off. Allegra saw a vision and it stopped. So I hope to see more after that.
The third story was about Schuyler and Jack. I adored this story. I finally got to see them bond. Of course they had trouble at the beginning due to the Venators showing up, but they won the battle. It was so sweet. The ceremony was to die for. I finally got to see how much they truly loved each other. Poor Jack was even trembling and had tears in his eyes. It was so romantic.
If you love the Blue Blood series, you will love this book!!!! These stories fell in a lot of the what-if questions.
Bloody Valentine contains three short stories: the first about Oliver trying to recover from being Schuyler's familiar, the second a look back in time to Allegra and Charles Van Allen's relationship, and the third a present-day account of Jack and Schuyler's bonding. The bonding is why I bought this book and although it does irk me that I paid about $10 for a book that took me an hour and a half to read, the third story was worth the cost of the book. I have been team Jack all along so it was great to read about Jack and Schuyler's happiness.
My one complaint about this book is the same complaint I have with all short stories: it felt lacking in substance and depth. However, I would definitely recommend Bloody Valentine to fans of the series. It's a great addition to the series, and sets up the author's new series about witches as well (funny how convenient that is...).
