Overall I rated this bundle as 3/5.
Bookish things: 43 pages, the cover is just a collage of the four short story covers. Apt, but a little boring.
Where to buy: This collection is no longer available to buy.
My overall review:
Overall this bundle consists of four short shifter/biker stories. The pace of the stories was fast, the characterisation minimal for the most part, and the backstory almost non-existent.
I liked some of the stories, but others I really disliked. The feel of the bundle was rushed and unfinished, unlike Rebecca’s other polished series, this one leaves a bit to be desired.
Things I noticed:
12% – …at the very top of least (left) breast…
16% – …are you going to put it (in) my…
42% – His (He) adored her with his eyes.

I try my hand at reading Roseblood by Emily Shore
Synopsis: For Reina Caraway, being human does have its drawbacks when she is born in Le Couvènte, a Northern California city made up entirely of vampires and werewolves. While she feels like an outsider (and sometimes dessert) in her high school, Reina also struggles at home with the mixed blood of her family. With her vampire brother and father and werewolf brother and mother, daily life becomes a dangerous challenge.
On her shoulders is the promise of an ancient prophecy foretelling she will be the future Queen of Le Couvènte, Reina grapples with her evolving humanity by day and by night—paralyzing nightmares of the murders occurring all around Le Couvènte. When a vampire is found drained on the outskirts of the city, it is up to Reina and her dreams to help the Council discover the murderer’s identity.
Reina also attracts the attention of the most powerful vampire in her high school; Skip White. However, what she feels for him is complicated by the presence of her vampire childhood guardian, Raoul Kelley.
Then…Reina’s true nature and purpose unfolds through the revelation of her growing abilities. Suddenly she discovers she can manipulate water, fly, and hear the tiny speck of a raindrop fall from far away. When the deaths continue to grow closer to Reina’s inner circle, she realizes she must have the courage to not only accept her purpose but to embrace it.
So since I teased you all with the first page of The Black Daughter (several times now…) and I’ve now gotten my results from school, I figured I would share a little more of the story with you.
I submitted the whole 2000+ words to my teacher in early June and got back my grades only a few days ago. The comments were all valid, a couple of places she picked up on superfluous words (ACK! After all my editing!) and even one cliche statement, which upon further thought, actually needn’t be there. I can change it up.
