SUmmary: (from goodreads) By blood, by word, by magic…

Most can't touch the power. But Liv Warren is special— a paranormal tracker who follows the scent of blood.

Liv makes her own rules, and the most important one is trust no one.

But when her friend's daughter goes missing, Liv has no choice but to find the girl. Thanks to a childhood oath, Liv can't rest until the child is home safe. But that means trusting Cam Caballero, the former lover forbidden to her.

Bound by oath and lost in desire for a man she cannot have, Liv is racing to save the child from a dark criminal underworld where secrets, lies, trauma and danger lurk around every corner…every touch…every kiss.

And more blood will be spilled before it's over…

Blood Bound is one of the most suspenseful books I have ever read. It’s constant mystery, secrets and lies keeps you guessing and turning pages not realizing your almost finished with the book. I didn’t want it to end although it’s ending was remarkable. I loved that I was able to learn what happened with the other characters before the book ended not leaving me guessing. (I hate that). However, I do know that another book will be a sequel to this one because of how it ended.

I loved the fact that the author didn’t try to tell you everything at once. As you went along in the book, you learned along with the characters how everything evolves and falls in to place and how it happened in the first place. I love reading books that are in that sequence because I don’t get confused and irritated and give up on the book. Good Job! I also liked that the story was completely different from anything I have ever read in the sense of paranormal. I love that it’s paranormal but I love it even more that it’s completely different then what you’d expect from a paranormal book. Overall, I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading the sequel.

Liv Warren is the main character in this story and she’s a “tracker”. A “tracker” who can find anyone in a wide range with the scent of their blood. While at a party, she’s approached by her best friend Elle, who’s a “Seer” (she can see the future) and is told that she must stop seeing Cam because something horrible will happen in the future. Cam is also a “tracker”. However, he can find people in a wide range by using their names. But it’s not that simple. People with skills give their children two middle names, one from the father and one from the mother, in which none will ever know what name the other gave. The only person who will know it’s entire name will be the one who’s named.

That’s just a little inside scoop of what to expect in this story besides the summary from goodreads. There are a lot of “Skilled” people in this story with all different types of skills, but you will have to read the book in order to find out more. I highly recommend that you do, as it will not disappoint. You can read the 1st chapter HERE as a treat.
