Review & Giveaway! Blood Bond, by Heather Hildenbrand!

Review of Blood Bond, by Heather Hildenbrand!  *PLUS* One lucky reader will win an e-copy of the Dirty Blood Omnibus! That’s all THREE books in the series! Merry Christmas to you!


Review:
Tara is at it again in the third installment of the Dirty Blood Series: Blood Bond.  With Miles taken care of and the school year ending, she should be able to get her life back on track, right?  Cambria is coming to stay the summer with her and she will get to spend time with Wes, her hot-to-trot boyfriend, who has been leading The Cause.  Sun, best friend, and hot guy: sounds good, right?
One small problem.  She still has to deal with her ex-boyfriend, George, who Miles injected with a serum to turn him into a Werewolf.  Tara must find a way to save him, even if it means looking up a long lost relative who is a bit of a recluse, as well as being accused of being a murderer.  This relative holds the information that Tara needs to save George’s life, but is Tara willing to risk her own life to save him?
Oh, and did I mention that Alex took the job that would allow him to spend his time slaughtering every hybrid that they come across?  She may be confused about her feelings for him, but Tara knows that what the CHAS is doing is wrong. So there’s that too.
I found this book to be an excellent continuation of the series, filled with action, intrigue, and a little bit of romance, for those of us that have a small crush on Wes or Alex.  (I’m a Wes girl, always have been)  I found this book to be attention grabbing and fun, but definitely not one of those books that are filled with fluff.  The story moves along extremely well, with no signs of stopping.  This author sure knows how to keep a reader’s attention. 
With that being said, the ending of this book killed me!  The next book is slated to come out next year, which isn’t that far away, but it feels like forever!  So make sure you grab yourself a copy and catch up before the fourth book comes out.  I promise to help you with your withdrawals from this amazing world, but that means we have to be strong.  Wes needs me...I mean, us.
