Blood Duet Book 1
Avery age 13
“And I suspected that if I wanted to live another day, I had to become no one.”
Twelve years later...
“ In the bowel of New Orleans, I was the gatekeeper to the no-longer living.”
Welcome to the underbelly of New Orleans where trust is so rare it just might not exist and survival is instinct.
Maria Luis has written a raw and edgy suspense. Morals are checked at the door when the impending doom of a life lead in the shadows starts to unravel.
This ends ...more
Not sure what I want to say other than OMG! Having New Orleans as the setting is almost always a win in my book as I have family in the near area. But the story has to be intriguing and interesting and “Sworn” is both. Both Avery and Lincoln aren’t who we think that they are, especially considering how they grew up. I’m not always thrilled with continuing stories, mainly because I don’t like to wait to see what happens next. But when they’re written well, I do love the anticipation of the next p ...more
Marie's Tempting Reads ARC Review:
D-A-M-N this is the DARKEST book Maria Luis has EVER written! ITS INTENSE, ITS DELICIOUSLY DIRTY, ITS COMPLETELY CAPTIVATING! I didn't know what to expect when I heard Miss Luis was writing a darker story than we are used to from her. I was nervous, anxious, and excited all at once. And after reading the first book, Sworn, I can say with my whole heart this book was JAW-DROPPING AMAZING!
Sworn was really freaking sensational. This book GRIPED me from the start a ...more
~WRITING - PLOT - PACE~
CHRIST ON A CRACKER was this book good. Like seriously, SO f-cking good! The writing was fantastic. It was very well paced. The plot was super engaging. It was told in a dual POV format. There were twists and turns. Secrets. Intrigue. Mystery. Danger. It was smokin' hot. I LOVED the setting (New Orleans). Last, it ended in a shocking twist of a cliffhanger that I thought I saw coming (and I am STILL a little convinced I have some of it figured out) but left my mind tot ...more
Oh Wow!!! I Love This Book!!!! I could hardly put this book down and was actually pretty upset when I had to stop to answer questions my family kept asking (like are you going to come eat dinner? Uh no, can't you see I'm too busy swooning over Lincoln and trying to solve a mystery in N'Orleans' shadows). The lead female is such a perfect balance of a badass woman and a lonely little girl. Then, the lead male, Lincoln; just holy hot damn, I mean, for real, holy hot f@#ing damn . . . goose bumps . ...more
As sinfully delightful as New Orleans itself
Wow! Maria Luis has outdone herself with this book. Avery is strong yet vulnerable, timid yet bold, naive yet sensual. She is the best kind of wonderful in a complicated walking contradiction. Lincoln personifies hurt, anger, and love with nowhere to go. To say these characters are textured and complex is an understatement. Their chemistry will make your heart speed up and beg for more!! The city itself will draw you in and wrap its spell around you. T ...more
I would love to give this more than 5 Stars because this book, as with all of Ms Luis’ books, is 10 Stars worthy!
This story is suspenseful, thrilling, sexy, thoughtful and funny. Our two main characters, Avery Washington (Laurel) and Lincoln Asher, drive the plot and ride out the twists and turns of this out of control roller coaster ride. It starts out with Ms Luis introducing us to them in all of their imperfections and quirks and some of their back story but just as you peel an onion to revea ...more
