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…

I was so sad when Rachel's Shifters series ended. When Rachel announces that she was going to have a new adult series coming out I just couldnt imagine anything better the Faith and the gang. I am so glad I picked up BLOOD BOUND and found out that not only was I able to enjoy it but I think It might just have jumped into my top 5 favorite series.

Liv and Cam have a history. They were dating and in love until one night Liv told him it was over and left the life she was living behind. Cam has tried a million times to get her to tell him what happened or just talk to him but she pushes him away every time. Liv and Cam are thrown together to investigate the death of an old friends husband and they slowly start warming up to each other again.

I enjoyed all of the character is BLOOD BOUND. The world building was excellent, I really liked the blend of magical skills and oaths as well as the whole crime lord dictatorship. There is a lot of heartbreak, loyalty, mystery and action. There is a ton of twist and turns, I was shocked multiple times by things that came out. The whole story is fast paced and I am absolutely dying to know what comes of the proposition at the end of the book. I really hope all that Liv went through wasnt for nothing and that this big cliffhanger ends in a result that is worth the wait.

I gave it 5/5 stars
