Summary (from Goodreads)

“You belong to me… for life…” 
After a month off, Kristin comes back to work happier then she’s been in a long time. Her new status in life has her solving crimes faster and better than she ever could before. When Alex goes missing, Kristin finds she finally has to reveal the secrets of her life to her friends. Will they be able to stand beside her after they learn all that she has hidden from them? 
Julian and Gabe stand beside her faithfully as they try to locate Alex. They are surprised to find Trent in Fawn Hollow, but know that Trent may be the only one to do what Alex has asked them to do. As one more choice is taken away from Kristin, she attempts to make the best of it, but finds herself drawn to Trent in a way Julian and Alexander could never compare to. 
Trent goes to work with Kristin to keep her safe but will he be able to handle all that her police world entails? Can he handle the side of her that she reveals, the one that Alex and Julian know nothing about? When Kristin and Trent uncover the connection between her job and the kidnapping, they are finally able to put the pieces together, but can they get to Alex fast enough? Will Kristin be able to handle rescuing Alex and all that she learns in the process? 
Join Kristin, Julian, Trent and Alexander as they dive into a new mystery that will have you turning the pages quickly to find out who is responsible and how Kristin’s life is forever changed once again.

 Holy cow, another guy!? How lucky can a girl get?? Seriously now Kristen has had not one, not two, but THREE guys fighting over her! Totally crazy. I remember after I read My Blood Runs Blue (book one in the series) I thought “what on earth is going to happen next?” The first book ended on a good, and what seemed to be a final, note. I was happy with Kristen’s choice and I didn’t know where the series was going to go next. Well I got my answer with Book 2. 

Blue Blood for life picks up a few months after book 1 ended and there are some problems for the love birds. Enter a new guy, and a new villain and you have a whole lot going on. I liked this book even more than the first one. One thing I will note is that there was a lot of recap from the first book. I am not a huge fan of this. I know you want to remind readers what happened in the previous books so they are not coming in at the middle of a story, but I just don’t like re-reading stuff I have already read. 

I was a little sad to see that Alex was not really in too much of the book, but Jullian is back and so is new guy Trent. I really liked Trent and I was a little disgusted with myself for abandoning the Alex ship as quickly as I did. What on earth is with all these guys? They all seem so nice and good for Kristen that whenever one of them does something for her, I immediately am on their side. Ultimately, I liked Trent a lot more than Alex. I’m not going to tell you how things work out, or who she ends up with. That would take all the fun out of the book. Plus, I have no idea if she will even stay with this person much longer. Who knows- maybe tomorrow another new guy will come into the picture? Haha. 

Blue Blood for Life is a fast paced, exciting read. I read it in no time, the pages just fly by. I really like how we get to see the story told from a few different POVs. I especially like seeing how different characters view or felt during the same event. It causes a little overlap but not much. Stacy does not dwell on the same things for each character so the POVs are not too repetitive. 

3.5/5 Gavels.
