My POV: Bleeding Hearts by Alyandra Harvey

Paperback, 347 pages
Published December 20th 2011 by Walker Books for Young Readers 

As vampires from all over the world descend on the Drake farm for the Blood Moon gathering, security is ramped up. Lucy has been temporarily banned, for her own safety—and to allow Solange some time to adjust to her new existence. But their enemies realize how much Lucy means to the family, and plan to abduct her to use her for leverage against the new royal family. Instead, Lucy’s cousin Christabel is kidnapped by mistake—and Connor Drake immediately heads off in pursuit, but isn’t in time to prevent Christabel’s infection by the Hel Blar. He can’t save her human life, but he can still try to save her new vampire life, and is willing to put his own life on the line for the girl he has grown to care so much about. Can he save Christabel, the Blood Moon, and his mother’s newly forged Vampire Alliance?--Goodreads

My POV
God how I've missed these books! This is one of my favorite series and this book took a while for me to get to for a number of reasons but I finally got to it. YA! And Just like all the rest of the stories in this series, Conner and Christabel's story was FUN, sexy, and down right addicting. 

In this book we get to see how Conner (one of the seven Drake brothers) falls for Lucy's cousin  Christa and how she goes from being totally clueless about vampires to being more like the Drake family than Lucy by the end of the book. I was all smiles when I could see that Connor was interested in Christa but was having a bit of insecurity problems because he is not like his very flirtatious twin brother Quin. Connor is more of a self reserve, comic books reading, Sci-Fi loving vampire who happens to be EXTREMLY HOT. The thing is Christa claims she only goes for bad boys and Connor clearly is not. Well not in the way she thinks anyway but he is clearly perfect for her. I say this because she is a poetry/reading junkie who can spout lines from Coleridge's and Shelly's work like nobody's business.

You also get to see a ton of Lucy And Nick (my fav characters) and the rest of the family. It was so much fun watching them be together and seeing how things are progressing. But in this book you actually find out that The Drake family has pushed Lucy away a little. Its really heartbreaking to see Lucy get all lonely when they have decided to ignore her or leave her out of things "for her own safety" of course because she grew up with all of them and has never been apart from them very long. Now everything has changed. Especially Sol. She really suprised me in this book because she is so different. I can't wait to read the next book to see WTHeck is up with her.

Once you read one of The Drake Chronicle books you will want so much more. If your looking for something fun and action packed to read make sure and pick up a book from this series.

Quote
“Solange and all her irritating brothers could get themselves kiled without me. I deserved to be part of their clandestine plans. I'd earned it. And I was sure they'd need a human touch at some point. And if they asked Hunter to help instead of me, I'd stake every last one of them myself.

“Her eyes went so wide they nearly bulged. It was probably wrong of me to find that amusing. Or to want to take a photo of Nicholas with his fangs out and wearing a black cape lined with red satin and then hang it over my pillow in a heart- shaped frame.”

  2. I've read all the books in this series and they're great, kept me entertained and wanting to keep reading the book. I've even re-read it a couple times since purchasing it.
