Blog Tour & Giveaway: Blood and Sacrifice [Blood Ties 02] by JessicaGibson!

Publication date: 24th May 2013
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Bronwyn left everything behind when she left with Ronan. She became what he needed her to be and forgot the rest. Too bad the past won't stay in the past.

Rider bursts back into her life uninvited, and is not the man she remembers. There is an edge to him that was not there before. Bronwyn is torn by guilt over what he has become and anger at being blamed for it.

When Ronan ended his maker’s life, he inherited a line of vampires and a whole set of problems to go along with it. Bronwyn must decide if their love is worth it, worth the killing, and the constant disruption of their lives.

Is love enough? Can Bronwyn find herself again and strike a balance between who she wants to be and who Ronan needs her to be? Or will she lose herself all over again?

Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I sort of forgot how the last book in this series ended so I quickly went back and re-read the last few pages to remind myself! I quickly got caught up and I started this book straight after! I didn't think that I was going to enjoy this book as much as the last one but I actually preferred it over the first book! The author has really taken steps forward with the characters and the plot! I was a bit hesitant of what was going to happen in this book after the ending to Love and Blood, as I had my own ideas, but I was sort of proven wrong! I was right about one thing though! The plot of this book didn't really have as much action as the first book, but it did focus more on relationships! I enjoyed it! The plot went at a good pace to keep me interested and it was continued on very well form the first book! This book was also pretty short so I finished it in a couple of hours! Again, I really enjoyed the characters in this book! I felt that Bronwyn had grown up a lot compared to how she acted in the last book! I felt that she knew where she was in her life and she was ready to make her own choices! I preferred her in this book to the last book as I felt that I could connect with her better! I didn't like Ronan in the first book in this series so I was a little worried about what I was going to think about him in this one! I can say that my opinion of him completely changed! I actually really enjoyed reading about his developing relationship with Bronwyn and I actually liked him! I could see the feelings that he had for Bronwyn were genuine which I liked! I liked that the love triangle was still in this book as well, but it didn't play as big a part as what it did in the last book! It was still good to see some scenes focusing on it though as it is a great love triangle! I was Team Rider in the last book and I really wanted to be in this book, but as he wasn't really in a lot I didn't really have a team! I could be torn between Rider and Ronan in the next book though! The ending has left me desperate for the next book! It was so mysterious and unexpected! I can guarantee that I will be waiting desperately for the next book! The cover is stunning! It's so different to the first book but it still matches it! I love it! Big thank you to Jessica for an ARC of Blood and Sacrifice and also for having me on the Blog Tour!
