Bound by Blood (Crescent City Wolf Pack #3) by Carrie Pulkinen was a fast paced, action packed, steamy romance, that had me hooked from start to finish.
Not my first read by this author or in this series. I am addicted to these books! I will tell you that though these read as standalones, there are major spoilers and backstories from the other two books. So I highly suggest reading them before this one. That and, they’re freaking awesome as well.
I’ve been waiting for this book, right from book one when Alexis met Bryce in the first book. Sparks seemed to fly, and you even notice it in the second. This is a long time coming for me and I was so happy to finally read their story. I was not disappointed, I knew it was going to be Alexis centered and the hard life she lead up till now. Getting her backstory, fully, was what I’ve been waiting for. I have to say, it’s dark, heart breaking and makes you just want to hug her, but at the same time it makes you understand why she so stand-of-ish and unable to fully settle down. Alexis has been a solid character since book one, and I will tell you, though she my be damaged, but she’s no pushover. Girl is kickass.
Bryce, he’s another character we finally get to see the true colours of. I’m not going to tell you what they are as it will ruin the fun. But damn, I wouldn’t kick him out of bed for eating crackers. Overall Bryce again is has been a solid character from book one. There’s a twist at the end that brings him and Macey full circle and it fit perfectly. I was kind of expecting it, but still pleasantly surprised when I was right.
Overall this book like it’s predecessors was a wicket thrill ride that full of messy action, kickass werewolves, steamy romance and of course, rich detailed writing that just pulls you into this unique, captivating world. This book, this series, is a must read. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will fall head over heels for this outstanding read.
