    1. I don t like Mac I don t like Barrons I m not even really enjoying the story So why keep reading, you might ask Masochism Some vague sense of loyalty toward friends on here who constantly berate me with, Keep reading, it gets better Or, is it really just my obsessive compulsive NEED to see how something ends Probably a little of all three.Once we get into the meat of the story, it s very plain to see that Mac hasn t changed, although she sure would like us to think so She goes on and on about ho [...]

Mac Version 2.0Mac has started to change, she originally was that southern Barbie girl who loved pink, cute accessories and fab nail polish.That girl is still inside her battling with the new Mac she is becoming Why is she changing Because every time she turns around someone is either lying to her or some Fae petunia hole is trying to kill her.Then we have Jerrico Barrons He tries my nerves a bit in this bookd then in the last 50 or so pages I get hooked.The tension between him and Mac finally r [...]

    5. 4.5 Done I m just ripping through this series, it s quite addicting This one was just a little better than the fist book, they both ended too soon, but I like how satisfying it is to finish these short books I m having a lot of fun with this, just the right amount of action and plot but the romance is one slowwwwwww burn.


    6. The second installment of Bloodfever is intense, powerful, dramatic and clever.We see a great deal of character growth from out favorite characters as well as a progression in the plot, albeit a small one.The writing is, as always, stylish and immersive The world is complicated, mysterious and intriguing.Overall, this book is a fantastic second installment in what is an amazing, refreshing and enjoyable series I m either going to kill Barrons sooner or later, or do very, very, very naughty thing [...]


    7. Possible minor spoilers if you haven t read the first book and if any of my random ramblings turn out to be trueAt the beginning of the book, we join Mac just after she finds out that she was adopted Immediately, she begins to act like her parents just dropped off the face of the earth, and she starts referring to her sister as her only real family Her attitude instantly turned ungrateful Yes, she was just being a drama queen, but I know for a fact that you can love someone who isn t related to [...]

    11. Fever is my all time favorite UF series, so of course this casual reread with the MacHalos has caused me all kinds of crippling, nagging worries and unending anxiety as usual All these questions keep running through my mind What if the series isn t as good as I remember What if it s better than I remember and I spend the rest of my life in bed, rereading for eternity What if a meteor crashes into KMM s house tomorrow and she never writes another word Most worrying of all, what if I meet an actua [...]


    12. no just fucking no, people.you read the blurbs of the books in this series and you think you re getting a sexy PNR but what you re actually getting is like six distinct buckets of cray s fun, it really is, until you make the mistake of thinking about what you just read you follow along, making assumptions about what to expect based on all the other sane and non rapey paranormal sexromanze series you ve read and then you realize that you should have tapped out in book one when the heroine was sti [...]


    13. Things are heating up for the Fever series No sopho slump here It s a strange new world out there and the rules have changed It s every princess for herself Ive discovered why I ve been sucked into this series I can t predict or classify the characters In a world where literary characters are painfully formulaic, Karen Marie Moning is blazing her own wild road with this series and I m just happy to be taken along for the ride.I read this entire book cover to cover in a single day I STILL have qu [...]

    16. 4 What the BLOODY Hell Stars It s our actions that define us What we choose What we resist What we re willing to die for There are only shades of gray Black and white are nothing than lofty ideals in our minds, the standards by which we try to judge things, and map out our place in the world in relevance to them An obsessed man with dangerous secrets.A seductive prince with his own agenda.A ruthless Grand Mistress.And in the middle of this deadly game of chess where the lives of the pawns are i [...]


    17. 4.5 I LOVE THIS SERIES, AND BARRONS, AND MAYBE V LANE A LITTLE TOO STARS.More action, suspense, fear, doubt, evil, darkness all of these elements sure don t make Mac s life any easier But while the world is turning evil, she is gaining knowledge and strength and one thing she makes sure to never lose is hope Hope is a critical thing Without it, we are nothing Hope shapes the will The will shapes the world I might have been suffering a dearth of hope but I had a few things left will, despe [...]


    18. Rereading with my buddies, edgy and sleepless Bring on the Barrons New thoughts after reread I was actually thinking that Mac was growing a bit in this story, and I was really proud of her for standing up to the Mob guy until she utters this ridiculousness Go ahead, O Bannion, come and get it I m fed up with jack petunias like you Original review from 2014 So, in Georgia they call the hot lava game don t touch the alligator That s just weird Everyone knows that when you are kids, you pretend the [...]


    19. Mac makes me think of an ostrich who buries her moronic little head to the sand right after painting a target line in pink on her ass She still is delusional, too stupid to live, yappy about clothing But she changed a little bit That s all I m giving to her.Barrons is sigh MINE Story line got really interesting and there were twists I wouldn t expect from Mac The author had little spasms of little did she know moments here and there but they were barely there, compared to the first book Buddy re [...]

    22. Question When you re one of the few people who can do something to fix a problem, just how responsible does that make you for it Answer It s how you choose to answer that question that defines you This sure is one crazy, kickass series The second installment, Bloodfever flawlessly retains the addictive nature of the story The plot is getting edgier, dramatic and intense With every page we get immersed deeper into the powerful and deadly world of Fae I used to think Darkfever was fast paced, but [...]


    23. Ok ok I m starting to get it This second installment was Much better than the first It has lots of action and with all the mayhem it gets pretty hard to put down The mystery, though, is still there picking away at my brain cells We got no real answers in this one, especially from Barrons Only questions Which ended up being ok because the book is fully loaded and it couldn t possibly all fit in here Plus the anticipation is kind of fun.Mac is becoming independent and grown up which is great I t [...]


    24. 3.5 5Whoa, that was quite a ride.Bloodfever was without a doubt better than Darkfever but only by a half star Regardless, it wasn t an average read like its predecessor Therefore, Karen Marie Morning is doing something right I can t wait to see if book three will get better When I think of this series, what immediately comes to mind are the words Guilty pleasure Because that s what it is, to me I can t pinpoint one phenomenal aspect within these first two books, however, I can tell you that I ke [...]

    26. It s a little hard for me to write a review for Bloodfever, because I finished it and immediately started the audio of Faefever I think I might confuse some of both books together if I try to summarize it for anyone Suffice it to say that I m hooked In Darkfever, Mac was a spoiled, na ve, and innocent young woman out to find her sister, Alina s murderer In Bloodfever, Mac has grown up a bit, whether she wanted to or not She s still the old fashioned southern, pink, and sparkle clad woman when sh [...]
