Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant Series Book 1) by Deborah Garland

Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant Series Book 1) by Deborah Garland is a wonderfully written story that I couldn’t put down once I started reading. Its also the first Book in The Princeton Allegiant Series. Who doesn’t love a good book about romance and vampires? I know I do. This story will hook you from the beginning and I found myself turning the pages fast trying to figure out what happens next. This story will keep your attention from the action and danger to the steamy moments. I truly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series. This is a highly recommended must read!

Drawing Bloodlines by Deborah Garland is the first book in the Princeton Allegiant series and is a fresh perspective on vampires in my opinion. This story is about Alexander Manning and Elizabeth Lockspier, these characters meet at Elizabeth’s doctor appointment when Alex draws then drinks Elizabeth’s blood. She definitely handled that little scenario better than I EVER could! The story just progresses from there and is a page turner to say the least. I was drawn in from the very beginning. Alex was a strong character who I felt bad for at points throughout the story. As for Elizabeth, she’s an independent, single divorced mom, who is a math teacher that is enamored of the handsome vampire from the beginning.
I liked the fresh take on the vampire culture and the world Ms. Garland has built. Between the hierarchy of the vampires and their “powers” I spent a lot of time on the edge of my seat. I loved the main characters and the secondary characters left me wanting to know what is going to come next and I look forward to the next book in this series. This is the first book I have read by this author but it definitely won’t be the last.

Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant Series Book 1) by Deborah Garland was the first book I have read by this author. I love vampire books and was excited to get to read this one. I found the book to be fun and exciting. It was a different take on vampires and I thought it was well done. I really enjoyed the characters and writing. At this point I would critique or say my thoughts on what could be better and I don’t really have any.I never saw that ending coming. I really wasn’t sure what I was suspecting but that was not it. So kudos Ms. Garland. Well done. 4 star rating.

Drawing Bloodlines is a new series for Deborah Garland. This is my first book from this author and what a story to start with her. Her characters are complex and personal. Alexander is a vampire who is an strong male who happens to be a professor as well. He is a century old and still learning his role and gifts of a vampire. Elizabeth is a teacher as well, who just happens to have blood that Alexander can not resist. In this world, Alexander is to report Elizabeth’s knowledge of vampires and he decides to handle it himself. That is where I am going to leave the story so there are no spoilers. I really enjoyed this world because it is also being built throughout the book. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

4 Stars

This is the first book that I have read from this author. I love vampire novels and Ms. Garland put some interesting twists in this story. Her vampires have some unique traits that I appreciated.

Elizabeth is a teacher trying to adjust to being a single mother. While at the doctor’s having a blood test done, she catches the doctor drinking her blood from a vial. Alexander is overwhelmed with the scent of her blood and drinks it. When he realizes that she saw him, he stalks her fully intending to wipe the incident from her mind.

The attraction between them is too strong and they enter into a relationship. It’s doomed from the start for vampires are not allowed to mate with humans. When a Commander chooses him to be her mate, Alexander desperately searches for a way out. He refuses to be stuck with someone he hates for all eternity. This leads to some interesting situations and an ending that you never see coming. What an ending! The author leaves enough open to be able to continue the series. I’m hoping the next book is about Loren and Julianna.

I give Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant Series Book 1) by Deborah Garland, 4 stars.

Elizabeth isn’t feeling too well after she’s had blood drawn at her doctor’s office. Feeling nauseated, she opens a door to what she thinks is the bathroom. Instead she finds the sexy doctor who just drew her blood and sees the unthinkable — he’s drinking her blood!!! Surely she is just hallucinating. This leads her learn that vampires are real. But can this sexy vampire fall for a woman like her? The answer appears to be yes, but the odds are against them that they will be able to make this relationship work. Can their feelings overcome all of the obstacles before them? What happens when danger comes knocking on their door?

This is a hot and steamy paranormal romance between a human and a vampire. To be honest, the beginning of the book shows the conflict with a human and a vampire being together. If you have read this genre before, you may have read similar. But the second half of this book is what really makes this story. There is plenty of action and things happening I can’t say I have read before. Without giving it away, the scientific side of things is spectacular. Alexander and Elizabeth are great characters — they both have their flaws and issues they bring into a relationship. This makes them relatable. The secondary characters are great too. We don’t see too much of them but my interest is piqued and I hope to read more about them in future books.

If you like your paranormal romance hot and steamy with some action thrown in, this book is for you.

Drawing Bloodlines was a fantastic 5 star read! I was completely hooked from beginning to end. This isn’t the first book that I have read by this author, I absolutely loved her Darling cove series so when I saw that she has a new series coming out that was different I was really excited to start it and I was not disappointed at all! I can already tell that this is going to be a fantastic series.
The characters in the story were amazing to read about! Alex was a hot vampire who I LOVED!! I really liked that he wasn’t what I expected, I kind of imagined him to be the normal vampire in a paranormal romance but he wasn’t so it was a pleasant surprise! Elizabeth was great too! I loved the two of them together; they had an amazing and intense chemistry!
I loved the storyline and all of the twists and turns! This is definitely a story that I would highly recommend! I am really excited to read the next book in this series!!!

This was in my opinion more of a light read. It doesn’t get to heavy. He is a vampire from a different time so he is a gentleman. She is more of an easy going person, not very confrontational more of a go with the flow person. He does touch upon his past and everything he didn’t like and what he misses. You expect what he will do because he never really wanted to be a vampire. There is drama when he needs to flow laws, and he was forced to mate with someone he absolutely hated. I enjoyed the downfall of the story, but it did leave me wanting to know what happened to the crazy vampire. I was left feeling like there is more to the story and more on the other characters. It is a standalone so no cliffhangers and it is also a hea.

Drawing Bloodlines: The Princeton Allegiant series book one by Deborah Garland, 4 star

So this isn’t the first book to which I’ve read from this author and I find with every new book that I read of Deborah’s, you can see the writing style has continued to grow, which is brilliant to see the style always improve, keeps the readers biting their nails as you think the storyline is going one direction and then Deborah takes you for a completely different journey. The different POV characters really worked so you totally understood how each of the main characters were feeling and had their voice heard.

The journey is brilliant and I don’t like to have spoilers in my review so I totally recommend that you read this.

Looking forward to seeing where Deborah takes this in book 2.
