In Her Blood

Alex Stone can pretend the supernatural doesn’t exist.
As the owner of a hot new clothing line, the only thing she’s killing is her competition. Until, she gets phone call from her past. As the Dagger, she was a member of a covert ops team tasked with hunting threats of the supernatural kind. For the super soldiers of Night Command, the rules were simple: take the pills, fight the bad guys and live to tell no one. After putting a bad-ass vampire on ice puts her in a padded cell, Alex thought she’d left the hunting game for good. Now she’s in the orbit of a handsome vampire with a problem and sometimes, keeping secrets bites.
With the best of everything and life eternal, who could ask for more?
Jason Stavros can and does! To the human world, Jason was just a poor boy who made it to the top. For a once human turned vampire, the fight for a place in the inner circle of the ruling class hinges on one task: convince the best ex vampire hunting assassin to become his personal bodyguard and save them all.
Join Alex, Jason and a new team of young hunters as two worlds unite against a common enemy. As the body count begins to rise, Alex and the Tracker team fight friends and enemies to find the answers they seek. And, what’s been happening in the dark will... finally come to the light.

I recieved a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review.
I have to say I am quite disappointed about this one. I expected myself to at least enjoy it considering how exciting the blurb sounds like, but it ended up being the slowest read I've done this year. For a book that promises romance, In Her Blood kind of fell short. Not that I expected it to be full on romance (because I do enjoy a lot of action with a side of romance) but I just can't seem to find any connection, chemistry or even the relationship/romantic development between the two main characters. Out of no where it went from 0 to 100 real fast, and for someone who enjoy insta-love in several occasions, this book still doesn't do for me.

Same goes to the characters, in my opinion. There's just so many things going on that it feels like there is no space for the characters to develop and for the readers to feel attached to them.
Either it's the plot or new characters being introduced, at some point everything just felt so messy and exhausting. I have to actually focus on going back and forth trying to remember characters that was previously mentioned because there's just too many of them!

I don't know if I like or dislike the main character, Alex Stone (love the name though) or her love interest, Jason. The whole book simply fell in the 'just ok' category for me. I do think with less characters and more organised plot line, this book could become something more. I wouldn't recommend this personally but that being said, the book is still worth to try out.
