Terrified to admit she is drawn to him, Tabbi tries to push him away. Drake is more accepting of his feelings, but needs to know what secrets she is hiding from him.
This book was addicting read. Pepper O’Neal has crafted an amazingly real world that draws you in and does not want to let you go. The characters are real and relatable, the scenes and backdrop are perfectly portrayed, the conversations and the story flow naturally. Even the relationship between Drake and Tabbi seems real and unforced. Blood Fest is great writing. The author has managed to take a supernatural theme and make it seem perfectly normal. She also filled in all of the details- there was never a time that you didn’t understand what was going on or why something happened the way it did. O’Neal has thought everything out. I also liked the way she took a common theme and managed to make it her own. This is not your typical book about lycans or weres or vampires or humans. This is an amazing combination of them all. Whether you like paranormal romance or simply love a good book you will find everything you need here!
