The Angel's Divide (Beyond Blood Series Book 2)

A Family Divided
With family comes different shades of insanity, a lesson I’m learning more and more these days. I’m torn between honoring the family name I grew up with and settling for the monster I was born to be. Love, duty and lies have cemented a divide within a family that was never meant to be. I may very well be that divide.

A Life Divided
It’s a balancing act. An exercise in right from wrong, human from monster, something that has taken my entire life to master. A divide that is becoming harder to manage. I don’t want to be that monster, but she is becoming stronger and stronger, eating away at my humanity every day. How much longer can I hold her back?

A Heart Divided
Both Lorcan and Alistair own me, whether it be my heart, body or soul. Both are my mates, each bound to a necessary part of me. No matter how much I try to deny it I’m not sure I could survive without either of them. Lorcan appeals to my human side, keeping me alive, sane and satisfied, while Alistair brings out the monster, along with the dark pain and pleasure. I want to cut my ties with the devil, but will the price an old witch demands be worth the sacrifice of losing both? Or worse, myself?

I purchased this book at an author signing when the author told me all about this series.  I had never read anything from her and the whole paranormal, dark and erotica thing had me sold.

I didn’t think it could get any better and then BANG Book 2.

The book picks up right at the ended so be ready for the news about Jane, Kendrick, Alistair, Angel and Lorcan plus our favorite beeotch aunt.

This book we really see Angel struggling.  She is struggling with her humanity.  She is struggling with her need for the pain Alistair gives her.  She is struggling with the care and devotion she gets from Lorcan.  The girl is a mess then you throw in the guilt for Jane’s new situation…..OY VEY.

This book our girl is done taking it from everyone and decided to take the horse by the reigns.  She finally trusts her dad to help her out of a situation with Lorcan by her side, but can she really trust daddy dearest???  I mean I felt bad with the story he tells us about his love for Angel’s mom buuuuut yeah…hrmmmmm.  He had ulterior motives I totally thing.

The book zooms and before you know it Angel is left battling for her life and her humanity.  I can not wait for the next book because its going to be a wilder ride I can totally see.

I am Christine Alvarez, a mother of four spectacular hoodlums and married to my other half. Writing has been a passion my entire life and until now becoming an Author was only a dream. I am a stay at home mother which never leaves a dull moment. I am not a sports enthusiast and quite frankly I’m probably allergic to exercise.
My guilty pleasures are Dr. Pepper and chocolate. They have both been at my side many of nights as I write. I write anything from paranormal romance to dark erotica. You will probably find as I release more books that my work may cover anything from the happily ever after endings to the dark and broken ending and pretty much all the areas in between

 

#WOTR18 #Erotic #Review #PNR #Vampiers #Dark – The Devil’s Angel (Beyond Blood Book 1) by Christine Alvarez

The Devil's Angel (Beyond Blood) (Volume 1)

**WARNING**
The Devil’s Angel is not intended for the faint of heart. It is violent, dark and focuses on a very warped blood fetish.
The heroine is hard, confident and learns the hard way that what she is has limits, and what she craves is beyond what she has ever wanted.
The hero is far from a hero. He is a depraved sociopath who has a craving for blood and violence that goes beyond his vampire nature. Hero wouldn’t even be the appropriate title. More like the destroyer.
The first book in a Burned and Broken Happily Ever After it is intended for readers 18+. It contains death, knife play, anal, and same sex encounters. There are parts that are uncomfortable and down-right horrific. If you can handle that by all means proceed, but you have been warned.

He is the Devil.
Hell is a relative term, but from the moment Alistair Drake stepped into my office I was on my way. I have been taught from as early as I could remember that vampires should be nothing but dust in the wind, but his sly grin and commanding presence helped weave his web pulling me within. The methods nothing less than masterful, wound in such a way that I couldn’t feel when escape was nothing but a memory. He holds more questions than answers but as his pain turns to pleasure and his pleasure turns to pain none of that seems like it matters.
She is my Angel.
Heaven is transcendent, but with Angel Mae heaven was imminent. Her hybrid makeup feeds my unique pleasures. She is the perfect toy to add to my collection but to acquire something such as her doesn’t come without risk. The very blood that pulses just beneath her perfect skin chips away at my control. The monster that had been so expertly reigned in pounds harder at its escape. As her pain becomes my pleasure and I become her pain none of that seems to matter.
He is the Key.
The mark, Lorcan McRevve, the right hand man to the devil himself was supposed to be the key to escaping a prison I’m not even sure I want to escape. The secrets that he holds and the secrets that unfold may prove to be too much. Will tracking him down be worth it or will both men use the power of blood, pain, pleasure and seduction to hold me in a prison that may shatter the already fragile divide of two worlds that I have worked so hard to balance?

I purchased this book at an author signing when the author told me all about this series.  I had never read anything from her and the whole paranormal, dark and erotica thing had me sold.

Holy Moly….ok yeah the warnings….you should prolly not read this book if you get a bit nervous about those because they are most definitely present in the book.  I didn’t think they were THAT bad but you may!!  I will warn ya, Alistair is a sociopath and so yeah….not a good guy..so yeah he does bad, bad, bad things to people!!

I was sold on this series when the author told me erotic and paranormal then she said dark……yup it hit all the components I was hoping for.  Alistair is a very old vampire with secrets galore.  He hires Angel, the vampire/monster killer to help her find a missing “child” of his and some things the child took.

Angel and her bestie Jane know something is not right, but Angel goes and gets into business with the guy against her better judgement.  Angel is half human and half vampire.  Her vampire side aka her monster is calling to her and to him which causes all kinds of future issue for our girl.

Alistair seems to know more about Angel and her vampire hunting family then even she knows.  He also has some connections to her past that she will do anything to learn.  However, anything means she will be mating with the devil himself to get to the bottom of the truth.

This book has so many plot twists and turns but sweet baby Jesus…the sexy time scenes were HAWT….like WOW hawt.  I mean *Eyes bugging out* Did they do THAT!!  Did they have THEM join in???  Holy hot tamale!!!!

So the end of the book left us with a giant GASP moment and I am so going to download book 2 because I am dying to know what is happening to Angel, Jane, Alistair and the rest of the crew.
