Reading Corner Friday ~ The Blood Ties Book 1 by Jennifer Armintrout

Welcome back readers!!!

Today I’m taking you back to 7 years ago when I had the luck of getting introduced to this book. This book is actually the book that set me off into the reading world and I’ve never looked back.

The Blood Ties Book one in the series gets you introduced to all the characters and the world through a vampires eyes. Dr. Carrie Ames is a new Doctor and poor thing ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time, the morgue. While down there she gets bit by what everyone thought was a dead body, but it was in fact a very powerful vampire who now is her sire because he turned her.

This guy is the just meanest, ugliest , most foul vampire. When you find out the things he’s done as you go forth in the series you just want to hate him so much and wonder why Carrie even is attracted to him. Must be a sire thing right?

She at some point early on in the book she meets a man named Nate and he is dead bent on killing Carrie’s sire Cyrus and she also becomes attracted to him too.

This whole series is a roller coaster of emotions and I am so happy I went through them. I haven’t read a vampire book quite like this in a while. Not that I haven’t read many great ones but this one…I just cant explain it you just have to read it. So many feels. Loved this authors writing.

Now this book got a little adult at some points and there are curse words so be aware of that before you dive in. Some people don’t care for all that jazz and I just want to make sure I forewarn you.

I couldn’t find a website for Jennifer Armintrout but I did stumble upon her Author Page and the link to the first book The Blood Ties.


I51Tjv072QaL.jpg‘m no coward. I want to make that perfectly clear. But after my life turned into a horror movie, I take fear a lot more seriously now. I finally became Dr. Carrie Ames just eight months ago. Then I was attacked in the hospital morgue by a vampire. Just my luck.

So now I’m a vampire, and it turns out I have a blood tie to the monster who sired me. The tie works like an invisible leash and I’m bound to him no matter what I do. And of course he’s one of the most evil vampires on earth. With my sire hell-bent on turning me into a soulless killer and his sworn enemy set to exterminate me, things couldn’t get much worse — except I’m attracted to them both.

Drinking blood, living as an immortal demon and being a pawn between two warring vampire factions isn’t exactly how I’d imagined my future. But as my father used to say, the only way to conquer fear is to face it. So that’s what I’ll do. Fangs bared.
