At a Glance: Blood Tied is definitely not my normal type of book, but I loved it!

Blurb: Thad Blackmoor’s heart is as cold as his icy magical abilities. He considers emotions a waste of his time and prefers to study the arcane, using the sacred books of his coven to grow in his craft. He aspires to supersede his father and elder brother Pierce in power, and now that his younger brother, Mason, has tapped into the rare warlock power of darkness, he needs to work harder than ever.
But Thad’s ambitions are halted when he saves Aiden Teine, a fire fairy, from a banshee. Thad’s immediate attraction to Aiden catches him off guard and thaws his cold heart for the first time. As Thad, Aiden, and his brothers investigate the connection between the banshee attack and the vampyre and shadow weaver who almost killed them, Thad tries to dodge Ben, a sexy warlock who won’t let him be after a one-night stand.
Their search for answers leads them to the Otherworld, where something even more insidious is at work—something Thad will need more than logic to stand against.
Review: Well. When I first heard about Spell Bound, I had absolutely no interest in reading it—really, it isn’t my usual type of book. Then a couple people I’m friends with on Facebook kept posting and sharing things about it, and because I usually read what they recommend, I decided to give it a shot. And, I was right and wrong. It is definitely not my normal type of book, but I loved it!
So then, as fast as my little fingers could type when Blood Tied came up for review, I threw my name down. After the first book, I couldn’t wait to read Thad’s story. I am pretty sure he is my favorite of the brothers…maybe. Alright, I kind of love them all, but I was really excited about his story. There’s so much action and so manyt things going on in this book that I couldn’t get my Kindle to flip pages fast enough.
Throughout part of the book, I kept going back and forth between who I wanted Thad to be with—Aiden, no Ben…ummm, no Aiden—but I wasn’t expecting what I got. Compared to the cold, unfeeling Thad we have in the first book, and at the start of in Blood Tied, seeing him come around and soften up and show some emotion was heartwarming. I really enjoyed how this series is unfolding, and I am looking forward to what is coming next.
These books are the first I’ve read by Jacob Z. Flores, and I am looking forward to reading much more from him!
