I thoroughly enjoyed Blood Match, the second book in the Blood Type trilogy. Like the previous book this too ended in a cliff-hanger, which had me quickly searching for the next book.

To recap, Reyna desperate to earn money went to work for Visage as a blood escort. She ended up becoming a permanent blood escort for the enigmatic Beckham Anderson.

At the end of book one Reyna found herself in a precarious position. In Blood Match, which picked up where book one left off and we see Reyna being held captive by Beckham’s boss, Harrington, where she was being used solely for her blood because of her rare blood type.

Her life with Harrington was literally that of a prison. She had no access to the outside world and she was constantly being poked by needles. Her sanity was hanging by a thread, however her hope of a reunion with Beckham and her brothers helped to keep her sane.

The story started out slow and gradually picked up the pace leading up to a jaw dropping end. Interesting information came to light regarding Beckham and his role in the Elle the mysterious organization fighting against the vampire hierarchy. I learned so much more about him, which provided a better understanding of his character.

Reyna in no longer the naïve person I met in book one. Her experience as a result of her being held captive by Harrington gave her a first-hand experience of harsher side of the vampire world. However, the things that remained the same were her impulsiveness, her ability to ask a million and one questions and her propensity for attracting trouble.

Her relationship with Beckham has blossomed. I love how protective Beckham was towards Reyna, but at the same time allowing her the freedom to be herself. I loved seeing them together.

The story introduced new characters into the mix and they helped to make things interesting.

This installment had its share of action and suspense. There were twists that I never saw coming, but the most brutal of all was the ending. It left me in a state of shock. Even as I am writing this review, I keep wondering if it was a plot to trick the enemy. It has to be, there could be no other logical explanation.

Conclusion/Recommendation

Overall, a solid story and one I would recommend to fans of paranormal romance.

Narration

Caitlin Elizabeth continues to narrate the series. She has improved since the first book. I loved how she handled the voices for each character. Her voices were distinct and she brought life to the story.
