Review: Bloody Valentine by Melissa de la Cruz (Blue Bloods #5.5)

Title: Bloody Valentine  by Melissa de la Cruz

Grade Rate: A

Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps - the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series.

Also, witness the bonding of Jack and Schuyler.

My Review

This is a short book with three stories about some of the characters from the Blue Blood Series. The first story is about Oliver and the struggle he faces after Schuyler leaves with Jack. It is painful to read, but at the end I am glad that he was able to rise above it (with some help of the magical kind!)

The second story was about Allegra, Charles and Schuyler's dad (Ben). This one was an unexpected, but good addition to help us understand certain things. As you know more most of the books Allegra has been in a weird coma and we don't know why or how this happened (we still don't know.) But we get a view of her life as a teenager, of her increasing unease about her relationship with Charles, the tense relationship with Cordelia, and more enjoyable, how she meets the man she will eventually marries. This story left me even more curious about why she still made the decisions she did, and what happened after. Also, what exactly happened in Florence?

The third story is about Schuyler and Jack and I loved it. I was glad to see that both Oliver and Bliss were happy and that my favorite couple tied the knot. Can't wait the the next book!
