Ok, so I’m just going to start by saying that I have this problem. My problem is that when I start a series or trilogy or just a book with a sequel, I won’t write my review until I’m like finished, because I just cannot stop reading for the like of me. I read all four of the my blood approves books in three days because I just didn’t want to stop, so I’ve kind of been procrastinating with writing this review….
So to start, I think that these books were REALLY good. I mean there were like those stupid cliche vampire book parts, but if you can get past that then you would think this was really good.
So in this third book, which was my favorite of the four book, everything kind of starts to go downhill for everyone. Alice just became a vampire, and all that, then Peter apparently was going to kill himself, so her and Ezra go to Finland to retrieve him from the Lycan, a group of primitive vampires. They bring him back, and then they have some trouble with Alice human best friend, and a mae’s great grandaughter, and Jack and Alice’s relationship, and peter with Alice, and Milo’s new boyfriend, and the Lycan trying to kill them all.
I think that this book would have sucked if it wasn’t for the characters. Alice was a little bit annoying but kind of cool, but Jack was HILARIOUS, Mae seemed all sweet, Milo was adorable, Peter was sexy, and Ezra was all perfect and a little bit sexy as well.
So overall, read it if you think you can get past the whole Cliche vampire crap, because the book isn’t FULL of it, and it is easy to get past.
I liked Flutter a lot compared to the first two books because there’s a lot more going on in this book. New characters also had been introduced in the story which made it much more interesting, there’s also a scene that involved a life a death situation, and last but not least, we got to see the different side of Mae in the story, which was not pretty. (I felt like slapping her, and talk sense to her since the main character couldn’t do it). I also can’t wait to find out more about Leif, the ex Lycan member. When Alice said his eyes looked like Milo, I suspect that he’s their father. Oh boy! I wonder what’s the story behind it, and if my guess is correct.
This was actually my favourite book in the series. It was a lot faster-paced and had a lot more action in it than the previous 2, both of which I found a little slow. Even better, there is a lot less whining from Alice in this one. I mean, she’s still a big puddle of misery and doesn’t seem to have any real aspirations in life, but she has a big heart and she will do anything for the ones she love. And I mean anything. This is what I like about her.
I was also so relieved and happy that Alice finally got turned. Not only was her constant complaining/fragility pretty repetitive, but it made the story much more interesting.
Jack finally overtook Peter in the “Who is better for Alice (or me) poll” in this book. In the previous 2 books I was on the Peter bandwagon but there’s this dark, depressing side to him that I’m not sure about. I think Jack is definitely the right choice for Alice, but I still have a thing for Peter!
We see much more of Peter in this book and see his reasons/thoughts behind pushing Alice away and…. the way he really feels about her, even now ; ) I am especially partial to Peter and he said some heart-stopping things to Alice, so I’m torn on this one. Not sure who I’m rooting for anymore :s
Overall, a really exciting read and the BEST book in the series so far. Given how the book ends (with a little taste of Book 4), I am expecting more action, some steamy love scenes between Peter and Alice.. I mean Jack and Alice (who knows anymore?!) and finally a change of scenery from the Townsend household to outback Australia. Can’t wait!
Flutter pretty much lives up to its name, considering I was pretty engrossed and invested in this book! There is a major development to the story line as new characters are introduced, offering even greater back story and character depth. There is such a smooth transition too. LOVED the portrayal of Peter. Like the last book, I had a difficult time setting it down. I am all too anxious to get my hands on the next book.
Flutter picks up where the last book left off. Jack turned Alice into a vampire and in doing so, bonded Alice to himself and severed the blood connection to Peter, which spared their lives. However, the blood connection may not have been the only force drawing Alice to Peter…Immediately after the change, Peter took off without contact, signaling trouble to Ezra, the family leader. Ezra is about to go off on a mission to find and save Peter from himself. Alice volunteers to go along, against Jack’s wishes, believing she may be able to help bring him back. However, in the process of saving Peter, Alice is introduced to the worst of her new “kind” and their interaction with them leaves a very nasty impression. Alice, Peter and Ezra return only to find their happy home has changed in more ways than one. Between Mae’s desperation, Milo’s new boyfriend, Jack’s jealousy, Jane’s addiction, Peter’s true feelings, and their new “friends”, Flutter is full of suspense and will keep you riveted to the end.
let me just start off with I LOVE PETER! and if Alice doesn’t want him I’ll gladly take him lol. Ok now that I got that out of the way I enjoyed this story, but honestly the people in this series need to learn that running away is not the answer Peter has run away now 2 times working on his third with Mea which is upsetting I really think Mea made the wrong choice and is going to suffer for it. Jack has run away once but he had to figure things out and came back after 3 days but he wants to move out to get away from his issues which are Mea and Peter (I wonder since they are moving is he still going to move out?). We are intuduced to Milo’s new B/f in this book Bobby I don’t know how I feel about him yet all I know is he isn’t what I imagined for Milo. I’m going to keep reading in hopes that Alice realizes she does love Peter because honestly there is still a spark there unless her sleeping with Jack (which believe me was very uneventful) deminished the spark which I will hate.
