High Stakes (Bo Blackman Book 3) (English Edition) Reviews
I missed the second book as a kindle download. So book 1 and 3 it was.Positive: the vampire detective plots are full of suprising twists and turns. Many interesting characters and - yes- animal pets - to get fond of.Not so sure about: the impressive grandfather - whats really wrong between him and Bo?Then Bo herself. While the image of a small woman as stubborn, courageous and persevering in maintaining her own moral standards is appealing , it isn't really conclusive why she keeps slapping the boss of her vampire family (where are her moral standards there ? and why does one have to snap and slap when one is attracted to a person? ), constantly snapping at people instead of asking about issues first. That makes Bo appear who is professed to be thirty one a rather immature person.Then Lord Michael, the boss: What's he boss about? It's said, he's head of the powerful Montserrat Vampire family, yet there's no descriptive action to explain this, his, job as interesting as this might be. Instead he constantly turns up to ask Bo timid question (she then snaps or slaps), assuring her of his undying affection or turning up suddenly to help her somehow. (She's not really grateful, instead snaps) All this makes the so called 'powerful' man and CEO appear inconsistent if not weakHmmmm.. as in grandfather's case.that is far from explaining emotionally conflicting relationships as interesting as it might be for the reader.This is different when it comes to Bo's care for teenaged Alistair, the helpful computernerd. Fun and friendliness spark here and the scenes between them are enjoyable to read. The same refers to contacts with other protagonists in minor roles.So what is the problem? I believe the author is very much able to fill out what is missing- gifting her main characters with more intelligence, charme and circumspection.I hope to experience that in waiting for the next installment.
I could write a long drawn out review, about the fantastic characters, great plot but I'll save us all quality reading time, why are you reading this review instead of buying the book go ahead, you won't be sorry, I'm off now to read the next book enjoy!
I love my Bo stories and this one is as good as the rest. Bo happens to always have a lot on her plate. The humans are hating the vamps and Bo is caught in the middle. She has shown some growth and some set backs in this one. She is growing as how to handle tough situations but as far as her love life is concerned...well, it need some work. Michael is so yes! and Bo is just too afraid of her feelings and avoids it like the plague. I'm wondering how much Michael will put with but he seems to always come back for me. The ending was well thought out, no cliff hanger but I'm having some hope for the romance side in the next one. More romance Helen!!!!
As the third book in the Bo Blackman series, the storyline has evolved into a wonderfully complex one dealing with subjects including Bo's growth into a true hero in the community, topics like violence against women and terrorism. A compelling mystery is also woven into the plot. The relationships between the characters are complicated and well written. This book is a must read.
Love this series! I Read the "Blood Destiny" series first, and found this one directly after. I believe it's safe to say that if you have read and enjoyed one series you will probably also enjoy the other.The story is fast and action packed so I found it very hard to put it down. There is a lot going on and whenever you think you know what's going to happen, the story takes a new turn. I did see some reviews commenting on some errors in the spelling/writing, and there were maybe a few, but nothing that put me off the story (if you're worried about that kind of thing you can probably just wait for the audiobook). I can't wait for the next one!
Again, another good book in the Bo Blackman series. Bo and Rogu3, Michael, and Medici. The pets both the evil and the cute. She isn't perfect and neither are her problems. Nothing she solves is tied up in quite a neat package and it makes you want to keep on reading. An entertaining story worth the read. A recommend from me.
Wonderful. Full of surprises and shows what a great imagination the author has. I loved it. I am getting more and more fond of the characters and am getting ready to start the next book.
