(Let me `splain: I made an offer recently on a discussion board to spend the month of May reviewing books from the authors on that board. I told folks that, in this case, I would need their consent since my reviews would be absolutely honest. I didn't want anyone to be blind-sided or to feel they're being picked on since I like hanging out there. I also made it clear I would purchase my own copies to further distance myself from people I do know casually. I'm hoping to promote some new authors, particularly while big name pubs duke it out over e-books, but I won't do that at the expense of honesty. My first obligation and responsibility when I review remains is to the readers.)

My first selection, coming in a few days before the May start date, is The Blood Approves by Amanda Hocking. I selected it because, well, she was one of the first people to give consent, but because I really liked the title. Somehow I missed the fact that she's also a fellow Minnesotan, but that's icing on the cake. I'd called this young adult.

The story follows Alice Bonham as she becomes involves with Jack and then his family. Jack is somewhat mysterious and she's attracted to him, because she's less attracted to him than your average girl. Huh? What I mean is that she sees people looking at him like he's a rock star, and he strikes her as a slightly above average looking, charismatic, guy. She feels drawn to him, sure, and her moods seem to mirror his, but she seems to also see him more realistically than other people they meet. Now, his family is another matter...

I don't think anyone could get through the first scene with Jack, let alone the second, let alone looking at the cover, let alone the title, without knowing Jack's big secret.

OK so here goes.. I never write a review for books unless they are just too good to be true! However I read them all the time to see if I want to chance it and download it. I happened upon this book while searching around to try to find a good book to read over the weekend, and hey it was 99 cents so I gave it a shot. WOW I was just blown away!!! Totally hooked from page one and quickly found out as someone previously said it is a young adult book with a adult take which I love to find since I am in my 30's. I really cant believe I am saying this but I enjoyed it more than TWILIGHT... I know I cant believe it either. So we meet Alice who meets Jack and I love how she doesn't just fall all over him like most do. Then we meet Jacks brother Peter and thats when the fun begins with such steamy tension between him and Alice. I read this book in one Saturday and didnt want it to end. I went online to see if Amanda had any other books I could try and was too happy that she had 2 more in this series!! I got them right away and read them in 2 days, trying to find ways to sneak and read it so my husband didnt get mad I wasnt spending time with the family. LOL I just cant wait till August to read the next one and I hope there is much more to come. Trust me read it and you will love it too. And the price of 99 cents is way to low it was worth much more than that!!

First off, I think Amanda Hocking is a very talented author, I loved the Trylle Trilogy, and I am sure that this series just wasn't her best but there will be more good ones to come.

That being said, I was very disapointed, I gave it 1 star only because she put the work into it and so I felt it deserved at least 1. I could not get through this book, it is too Twilight Saga. The similarities led me to believe she possibly took Stephanie Meyer's work, copied it, and then went and changed some of the details and sequence of events. Let me explain.

We start off with Alice and her friend trying to get into a club. They leave and get chased by a couple guys into a parking garage where Jack suddenly shows up in a car and saves them both. Definitely reminiscent of the scene where Bella is chased by a few guys and Edward suddenly shows up in a car to save the day.

After saving her life Alice and her friend get into the car with Jack where her and Jack discover that they have the same taste in music and, indeed, like the same artists. Again reminiscent of Twilight with Bella and Edward.

We then get to a point where Alice is "different". Jack's charm, so to speak, doesn't have the same effect on Alice as it does everybody else. That would be the part in Twilight where Edward realizes Bella is "different" and he can not hear her thoughts.

As we go on we get to the point where Alice is required to guess what Jack is and, even though it is entirely obvious, she has trouble coming up with the answer. Once again, very Twilight

Eventually we get to another point where Jack is driving a very expensive car that belongs to his brother, similar to the Cullens.

I am a fan of most vampire books - both young adult and adult versions - and very rarely find one that I cannot finish. Many vampire books have threads of similarities because they are all writing about the same subject - vampires, werewolves, etc. Yet, I was shocked at how blatantly this book copied Twilight. In the beginning scenes, the girl is walking down the city streets and is suddenly approached by four guys looking for trouble when the vampire's car skids into the road to save her (ummm, sound familiar?)... and then they physically describe him with his slight build and tousled hair (ummm, sound familiar again?)... and it keeps going from there. I even checked the date of publication thinking maybe this book was published first or around the time that Twilight first published (before it was well known). Nope, it was in 2010 (at least for the ebook version)? Why would you want to publish something that so obviously mirrors an over the top insanely popular series. As mentioned, I read tons of vampire series, and while they all have similarities that overlap, this is the first time I was distracted by the ridiculously similar and copy-cat story. I ordered the second book in the series at the same time as the first assuming I was going to love this one based on the reviews, but now I'm regretting that I did. Too bad. Save your money and check out a more original series.
