Bloody Valentine

"Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa De La Cruz offers readers offers a new story about love lives of their favorite vamps- the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series."When first picking up this book, I sighed and figured it was a small book so I could read it fast. I was correct. It was a small book, only 147 pages, and not even big full pages. I sighed as I opened the book. Then I came to realize that this was not the next book in the series. It was a small book that consisted of three short stories.
The first is about Oliver Hazard-Perry. It takes place shortly after Misguided Angel, and is about his struggle to get over Schuyler. This story left me feeling satisfied. This story didn't exactly move me (though it does have a recipe for Freya Beauchamp's Scrambled Eggs for the Brokenhearted) and after I just felt.. good. The second story is actually, to my surprise, about Allegra Van Alen, Schuyler's mother, when she was about Schuyler's age... maybe a little younger. This story left me feeling very sad actually. It made me feel sad for Allegra and helped me to understand her a little more. All in all, I think this was my favorite story.
The last story in about Schuyler. This is a close second. For those who have not read Misguided Angel (or any for that matter) I will refrain from telling you what the last is about, but it has to do with Schuyler and Jack... But anywho, this story left me feeling very happy, and in a way reminded me of Bella and Edward (Twilight Duh).
I have decided to give this small book a 4/4. It actually kept me reading and only took me a couple hours to finish. I think this is an enjoyable read for anyone. Though, please only read after Misguided Angel.
Sweet Daydreams!
