Review for Desert Blood by Anna Lowe - 5 out of 5!
Heather Luth knows nothing about the paranormal world until one awful night changes everything. Now she’s on the run — straight into the arms of forbidden love. Her mind knows better than to fall for Cody Hawthorne’s sunny smile and mesmerizing voice, but her heart — and destiny — have other ideas.
On the surface, Cody is warm, witty, and fun, but beneath his carefree facade, Heather sees a real man struggling to break free. Day by day, Heather and Cody grow closer and closer, unable to resist their simmering passion — while day by day, a serial murderer closes in on his prey. Duty fights desire; fear wrestles trust as the human world clashes with the paranormal in a tale of forbidden love.
MY REVIEW -
I really enjoy Anna Lowe's books, I like her take on shifters, and each book is short and sweet, and packs a punch. I enjoy that each book is about a different couple, but there are still glimpses of the previous characters. In Desert Blood, Heather has experienced something insane, and she is being stalked by a creature that shouldn't exist, so she leaves her home and takes a job as a teacher at the Twin Moon Ranch. Cody is a werewolf, who is part of the Twin Moon Ranch pack, he's always been a sort of ladies man, but lately he is getting tired of not feeling a connection, and of putting on a show as the fun-loving, carefree guy, who isn't responsible enough to take on important roles in the pack, so he has decided to step-up in hopes of being taken more seriously, but it's difficult to change the way people think of you. When strange murders are happening near the ranch, Cody sees a chance to prove his worth to his father and the pack, but when Cody and his wolf start feeling a draw towards Heather, a human, a wrench is thrown into his plans. Cody's father would not approve of Cody mating with a human, so Cody tries to resist his pull towards Heather, and Heather is only suppose to be at the ranch for a short time, so she tries to resist her attraction towards Cody, but the heart wants what the heart wants. I like that in Anna Lowe's books there are some action scenes; they are intense! Both characters are great, and I was only ticked at Cody at one point in this book, and I was sort of hoping that he would have to answer for that a little bit more. Heather is strong, and I loved the scenes with her field hockey stick; badass! The intimate scenes were great too, we get a dirty dancing type scene, that was hot! And there is also, a yoga type scene that was interesting to picture, lol! I like that there is POV's from both Cody and Heather, and they are super sweet together. I also listened to the audio version of this, and the narrator is awesome! She really brings the story to life! Definitely reading the next book in this series, and looking forward to more from Anna Lowe!
