So let’s be honest. I wasn’t sure if I could come back to book two of this series. Book one left me with so many questions that it was bordering on frustrating rather than intriguing. I’m so glad I took the plunge back into the world of Mercy and X. This book is everything I hoped it would be AND more!
Picking right up where Royal Blood left off, X and Mercy are in hiding. This book is fast paced, brutal and pivotal. I had nothing tangible or relatable from book one but this book turns that on its head. Amity certainly has the knack for writing great action scenes.
X is not your conventional hero. He’s brutal. He’s harsh and he’s pretty much a robot when it comes to anything emotional. He’s a perfect product of what he’s been programmed not to feel. That’s till Mercy pushed her way into his life and became the exception to the rule. Dare I say it, I’m actually starting to like him!
Mercy is the heroine that I love. She’s focused, she’s strong and she’s committed to both avenging her family and showing X what it can be like to have someone love you.
The growth from these two characters is what makes this book a winner for me. Sure, the content is confronting but they are both transforming into both the best parts of each other. X is taking his first strides into a personality that is so foreign to him, he’s actually worried and gives a damn about the woman Mercy is becoming.
Bad Blood – it’s brutal and beautiful and wrapped in a big X.
