Bloodlines (Conversion #2) By S.C Stephens

Emma has admittedly made some bad decisions in her life, but she was positive that being with Teren Adams wasn’t one of them. He was everything she’d ever wanted in a man – kind, caring, loyal, loving, and on occasion, a hopeless romantic. True, he was also a vampire, or partially so, and had recently joined the ranks of the undead, but to Emma, that was inconsequential. She was his, he was hers, and she could not wait to be his bride, to mother his children, and to stay by his side for as long as her mortal life would allow her to. At least…that was the plan.

PhotobucketSam's Review:

 Bloodlines is the second book in the Conversions Trilogy. Second book in and we meet up with Teren and Emma, almost immediately where we left them in Conversions, Emma pregnant with their twins and engaged to Teren.
We follow Emma and Teren through some good and tough times in this book, but when a nasty ass Vampire strikes at Emma, the Adams family goes on a mad dash to save not only Emma but her twins too!

I loved a lot about this book but also was beginning to get aggravated with alot of things as well.

Teren and Emma’s wedding was beautiful and can only be described as a dream wedding. The way Stephens described all the detail just gave you the illusion that you were standing there with them.

Loved that we got a little more intimate in this book. In book one, Stephens gave you the general census that Teren and Emma were going at it like animals but we never got the juicy details. Thankfully, in Bloodlines we got more detailed heavy petting LOL!

The book did have a Twilight feel to it, and I know this has been said before. But I have to agree. Only difference is that we are dealing with very horny adult vampires/ humans.

I did find myself skimming alot! I could skim three or four pages and not miss a beat. Stephens was just way to descriptive. A good setting description for certain scenes is always a winner, but this was going beyond realms of what I felt was needed.

Now, I didn’t bring this up in my first review because it wasn’t too much of a sore point, but now we are in to book two I have to say something. Emma’s sister is a burns victim. When she was younger she was caught in a house fire and is described as horrifically scarred. Now, it’s not the character I have the issue with it’s the constant way that Stephens would describe the girl. Every time she was introduced to a scene, she was described as the most horrific sight you have ever seen. It got a little too much to bare and wish it was let up on a little.

Overall, a good read. I’m looking forward to the next book to finish off and wrap up the series.
