Cold Blood (Dirty Blood #2)

Cold Blood (Dirty Blood #2) - Heather Hildenbrand

Wood Point Academy is not at all what I expected. For one thing, it looks like a cross between military school and Buckingham Palace. Everyone stares, the floors shine so bright you can see your reflection in them from a mile away, and no one smiles. Unless they're kicking your butt in the process.

At least I've got plenty to take my mind off the fact that my psycho cousin, Miles De'Luca, keeps calling and declaring his love and promising to come for me just as soon as he's destroyed anyone standing in our way. Wes isn't going to like that idea. So between Miles, Wood Point's evil welcoming committee, and the drill sergeant hottie trainer from hell, I just keep asking myself, how did I end up here?

Wow! Just when I thought it couldn't get any better Heather blows me away again. I absolultey adored Dirty Blood, the first book in the series and just had to read book two straight away as I couldn't wait to find out what was going to happen next. In no way did I think Cold Blood could beat Dirty Blood. I was wrong! Cold Blood was phenomenal and I am coming to the conclusion that Heather cannot write a thing that I am not going to love.

Tara is devastated to be shipped off to Hunter boarding school away from her friends and Wes. Add that to the fact that almost everybody there hates her because of her heritage Tara hates it! But then Tara meets Alex, her trainer who she recognises but also seems to hate her. But there is more to Alex that meets the eye. Can she continue to learn to be a great hunter and deal with her growing feelings for Alex when she's supposed to be with Wes?

I loved this book a lot more than I actually thought I would. I had heard about this 'other guy' before I started reading it and it didn't make me happy. I am a Wes girl! I love him and nobody else in this series could ever beat him. So when Alex first made his entrance I instantly disliked him. Not only was he not Wes but he was a total ass! But... the more I read the more I started to see a different kinder side to Alex. By the end I really did love him... but he's not Wes and I am still firmly planted to Team Wes.

There was definitely not enough Wes for me in this book and I missed him a lot. I wanted to slap Tara so bad for pulling away from him and not talking to him but I understood why she did especially when she feels like everyone is keeping secrets from her. This book is definitely a big journey for Tara. She goes through so much and finds out so much about herself I really felt like she grew into a much stronger more capable character that before. I love her and she is definitely one of my favoruite YA heroines ever.

This book is just full of twists and turns and just when I was sure I had figured out what was going to happen I was completely shocked and blown away. I think I spend that last 40% of the book with my mouth hanging open as I couldn't believe what was happening. This is just a phenomenal chapter in the Dirty Blood series and I was left hanging going OMG I need the next book right now. I think I loved this book ever more than the first one. I adored every second of it and couldn't put it down at all.

Its so difficult to talk about this book without spoiling anything because it just completely blew my mind. This is without a doubt my favourite werewolf book of all time and I cannot wait to read the next book in the series.

"It's partly my fault for not being around more. If I want to keep you, I guess I'm going to have to fight for you."
