Review: Flutter (My Blood Approves #3) by Amanda Hocking

Being undead doesn't make life any easier for Alice Bonham.

Her younger brother's love life is heating up, while hers is...more complicated. Mae is falling apart, her best friend Jane is addicted to vampire bites, and if Alice doesn't get her bloodlust under control, someone will end up dead.

Alice volunteers for a rescue mission with Ezra. But going up against a pack of rabid vampires might be too much, even for him.

I liked him, I hated him, felt sorry for him, than I wanted to smack him. You name the emotion and when Peter was on the page I was probably feeling it. Amanda Hocking has created a character I honestly can't make up my mind about. I'm not sure I've ever been so wishy-washy (if that's a real term) about another character before. Bottom line is, Peter drives me crazy.

In Amanda Hocking's third installment readers get to know some of the other less mainstream characters. Peter is one of them, but others took the spotlight too which was nice for a change. Milo's boyfriend is introduced and Bobby (said boyfriend) was not my favorite at first. I was in agreement with Alice for the most part when she was feeling overprotective of her brother rushing in to the relationship. Mae, who was one of my favorite characters in the first two books kind of starts to fall apart and I felt terrible about that. I also felt bad for Ezra because he didn't seem to be able to fix "it" for Mae.

With things of course getting rocky for Alice and Jack (no author likes a perfectly happy couple) I was stressed for them. Authors may want to keep readers guessing and entertained, but I just wanted the happy ending for those two. One of the new characters introduced, a Lycan, Leif turned out to be someone I really liked and hope to see more of. I'm not sure what his connection is with Alice (or why everyone feels connected to her really) but I am curious to learn more.

Another fun installment in the series that had me rushing to get the fourth and I believe the final book in the series, Wisdom to see how things turn out.

I gave Flutter (My Blood Approves #3) 3 shamrocks!!!
