Nov 10, D. Hot Blooded had all the things I didn’t like about the first book: The final confrontation between the main character and the evil villain was as follows: At the end, I wanted to kill them both.
What semi-intelligent being decides to have boastful conversations while in a fight to the death? On top of that, it seems the author doesn Hot Blooded had all the things I didn’t like about the first book: On top of that, it seems the author doesn’t know when to end a book.
Instead of getting some well deserved nookie with Roarke after the rescue, we get not one but TWO setups for future books!! Every sect wants a piece of Jessica! And let’s not forget the vamps! Which she swore to help at the end of book 1. And you know why? Because Jessica is one of the most powerful supes to have ever been born in the history of supernaturalkind!!! Because she’s the only female werewolf EVER!!!! And that trumps everybody and everything!!! This is it for me.
Sorry, Roarke and Therese Plummer the super talented narrator but not even the two of you could save this mess. View all 4 comments. Jessica McClain is the only female werewolf in existence. She is also the strongest, fastest and most powerful among werewolves.
Her first change was met with hostility and anger since it was prophesied that a female werewolf would destroy their entire race. According to a different prophecy, she’ll be the one to bring ballance to the entire supernatural community.
In Hot Blooded, her pack found itself in the middle of a war, and Jessica had to abandon them all to save her mate from an evil goddess bent on revenge. In the first book, worldbuilding was a bit neglected in favor of character development, but in Hot Blooded, Carlson a,anda than made up for it. The second part was especially interesting in that regard — Jessica and her friends had to fight all kinds of mythological creatures to get to Rourke, each of them more fascinating than the last.
Hot Blooded is full of heart-pounding action.
Carlson found a perfect balance for her main character — she made her stubborn and strong, but also compassionate and thoughtful. Unfortunately, romance is where Hot Blooded fell a tiny bit short. In Full Blooded, Jessica and Rourke discovered their mating bond, but before they had a chance to talk about it, let alone do something more than that, Rourke was taken and Jessica forced to move heaven and earth to save him.
Hopefully, that will change in Cold Blooded.
Hot Blooded: Book 2 in the Jessica McClain series by Amanda Carlson – Books – Hachette Australia
Carlson is a skilled enough author to make me forget all about it and I already think Rourke is perfect for Jess. I just need to see how well they work together. I am emotionally attached to every one of them, especially Tyler and Danny. She really took the time to flesh out Jessica’s entire inner circle. Her take on vampires was also very enjoyable. View all 11 comments. Jan 30, Denisa rated it liked it Shelves: It was better than the first one: D It’s not a bad story, interesting characters, fun plot and it’s pretty fast paced.
I didn’t have time to get bored, stuff kept happening. But these first two books could have been one.
Jessica McClain Series by Amanda Carlson
The end of the last one was too abrupt. Still, it isn’t a bad series, guess it’s worth sticking to it. I think I liked this book a little bit more, I felt more into the story and the characters, the world building was great as we set to see how the supernatural world of vampires, werewolves and witches work. There were also some interesting curve balls thrown at us to spice the plot up. I am definitely excited to read on and see what will happen next. Readers will see more of the world and the paranormal creatures that Carlson has in this book floored me.
So intriguing and unique, I loved how this book opened up the world to all the different paranormal elements. This book feels bigger and better than the first! Carlson is consistent with providing an amazingly elaborate world building and well developed characters. She kept me glued to every page attempting to absorb the details of the story.
What would you have liked to see more or less of in this book? Also, the action part of the book got a little bit repetitive I just wanted to hurry them up to the final showdown so we could see Rourke again! I would have loved to see more of Rourke. I want a whole book on Rourke…preferably with some nekkid time.
Also, I love the humor that Carlson infuses into her books. More of that would be nice, especially since Jessica kicks ass while saying something especially witty and smart. I really had to think about this question and I could not find anything I would like to see less of.
amqnda But I would definitely would love to see more of Rourke. Xmanda Full Blooded, I could not wait to see more of them together as I was rooting for their love to progress amsnda. Unfortunately, due to circumstances of the story there just was not enough of him here.
And when Roarke made his appearance, I just ate up the pages like an addict in need. What do you think of Jess and Rourke? I think they are amazing together! I only wished there was more time together in this book! They have amazing ammanda and whenever Rourke says something especially sexy, I melt! Her human side and her wolf side ccarlson clash so seeing that struggle is entertaining and makes for some fun interactions.
Carlson knows how to provide a true kick-ass-heroine because Jessica McClain is all that and then some. I get goose bumps to think what she can be and what she can do. As far as Roarke, well, we all know he is very special to Jessica. He is with power, sex appeal and experience, unfortunately, we did not get to witness most of it as he was detained. Not only that she is mated to Amadna Rourke, she is utterly in love with him. If there was a spin off book, which character would you like to see?
Yes, I love love love Tyler and would definitely read that series is Carlson should decide to write about him! That thought strikes my curiousity. Are you going to be reading the next book in the series? I really liked this book, it was action packed and full of excitement I will definitely be reading the next book in this series Annie: Hell yeah I am!
I need to know what happens next!
