Summary:

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they’re kicking your butt in the process.
At least I’ve got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De’Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he’s destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn’t going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point’s evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?
Cold Blood is Book 2 in the Dirty Blood series. To read more about the Dirty Blood series visit www.accendopress.com

My Thoughts Note: Cold Blood is the second book in the Dirty Blood Series. You can find out more about the first book in the series, Dirty Blood HERE
The best werewolf/hunter series I have ever read! I am already itching to start the third book. If you liked Dirty Blood, you will love Cold Blood. Tara is sent off to Boarding School and the kids are pretty awful, but Tara finds a couple of good ones in the bunch. I really enjoyed meeting some of the new characters in this story like Logan and Cambria (Cambria Hebert that is, ha ha I see what you did there Heather 😉 )And of course, Alex. More on Alex later.

Tara was great in Cold Blood. She is still impulsive as ever, but honestly I don’t think I would like her any other way. A few times, I wish she would have given her friends a little more credit, but I get why she was hesitant. Cambria is hilarious. I instantly liked her, just like she instantly liked Tara. I loved it when she said that they were future BFFs on her first day after everyone else was so awful. And Logan is such a sweetie. I just wanted to hug him.

We don’t get to see too many of the original characters from the first book because they are still all back at home and still working on Cause things. New setting, new people, but the story was just as great. I was instantly absorbed back into the lives of Tara, Wes, and now Alex. Ok, now lets talk about Alex. Alex is Tara’s new trainer at school. We saw him in the warehouse fight very briefly at the end of the first book, but he plays a huge role in this story. He is a new potential love interest for Tara. Making this story officially a love triangle. And just so you know something about me, I am almost ALWAYS team guy #1, which would be Wes. I don’t know why. I get to know them first and form attachments to them and then I am loyal to the first guy. But with this story, I found myself liking Alex more and more. I don’t think I have ever been as conflicted in a love triangle! Darn you Alex for being so great! I still love Wes, but we didn’t get to see too much of him in this book and Alex is a really great guy. And I think he might just be a little better for Tara. Ahh! I don’t know. I will have to leave my decision until the next book.

Tara goes through new hunter training and she also goes through some changes. I was just as curious as Tara was about her new temper, and what her “gift” might be. We still don’t know, but we are left with a crazy glimpse into it at the end of the book. Book three is going to be nuts. Heather Hildenbrand does a fabulous job writing excellent characters and she keeps the plot moving at a perfect speed. You will not be able to put this book down. This is now my go to series for werewolf or hunter recommendations.
