5* for What Lies Inside by J.L. Myers @BloodBoundJLM #ReviewShare #PNR #Vampires

What Lies Inside (Blood Bound, #1)What Lies Inside by J.L. Myers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My first impression was - Wow. I'm a big fan of Vampire Diaries and Twilight so as soon as I saw the cover, I knew I was going to like this book. Turns out I ended up loving it. I found it to be an intriguing book on so many levels that I am at a loss as to where to begin.

As I got to the middle, I felt - It was gripping, utterly heart-wrenching, and completely suspenseful all at the same time. I really enjoyed this unpredictable tale, it is well written and the characters are so well developed. Kendrick and Amelia both helped to move the story forward.

As I neared the end, I thought - No. I definitely did not want this to end. The adventure was coming to a close and I wanted to see beyond. Thankfully, as I write this review I realised the author has released the second book so I'm definitely off to add that to my TBR pile.

My final impression and recommendations - The concept of love amidst hate is not new. Shakespeare did it. Countless other authors have done it. However, to pull it off in a way that a reader can experience the emotions firsthand, now that's a different story altogether. Highly recommended.
