    Overall, I really enjoyed this book! I sort of forgot how the last book in this series ended so I quickly went back and re-read the last few pages to remind myself! I quickly got caught up and I started this book straight after! I didn't think that I was going to enjoy this book as much as the last one but I actually preferred it over the first book! The author has really taken steps forward with the characters and the plot! I was a bit hesitant of what was going to happen in this book after the ending to Love and Blood, as I had my own ideas, but I was sort of proven wrong! I was right about one thing though! The plot of this book didn't really have as much action as the first book, but it did focus more on relationships! I enjoyed it! The plot went at a good pace to keep me interested and it was continued on very well form the first book! This book was also pretty short so I finished it in a couple of hours! Again, I really enjoyed the characters in this book! I felt that Bronwyn had grown up a lot compared to how she acted in the last book! I felt that she knew where she was in her life and she was ready to make her own choices! I preferred her in this book to the last book as I felt that I could connect with her better! I didn't like Ronan in the first book in this series so I was a little worried about what I was going to think about him in this one! I can say that my opinion of him completely changed! I actually really enjoyed reading about his developing relationship with Bronwyn and I actually liked him! I could see the feelings that he had for Bronwyn were genuine which I liked! I liked that the love triangle was still in this book as well, but it didn't play as big a part as what it did in the last book! It was still good to see some scenes focusing on it though as it is a great love triangle! I was Team Rider in the last book and I really wanted to be in this book, but as he wasn't really in a lot I didn't really have a team! I could be torn between Rider and Ronan in the next book though! The ending has left me desperate for the next book! It was so mysterious and unexpected! I can guarantee that I will be waiting desperately for the next book! The cover is stunning! It's so different to the first book but it still matches it! I love it! Big thank you to Jessica for an ARC of Blood and Sacrifice and also for having me on the Blog Tour!

    Favorite Line(s) “See, that’s the problem, you all keep expecting me to be someone else. I’ve changed, he’s changed. The only ones who have stayed the same are you guys. The sooner you come to terms with that, the better off you will be.”“Unless you like to listen, you should probably leave for a few hours. Things are about to get...” He stopped talking, his eyes never leaving Bronwyn’s.”“Sleep now, love, we have a long journey ahead of us.”Holy smokes this author loves me make you go what!!! As with the first book in this series Bronwyn is still finding herself. I think she changes ALOT but, I understand why. It's easy to get sucked in and Ronan sucks her easily!In this book she is still with Ronan but, Rider has cracked! He is broken without her. The only thing now is Bronwyn doesn't show she cares. All of her old friends keep asking her, Who are you?? I don't think even she knows. She loves Ronan and has changed him a little too for the better. I do wish these books were longer only cuz I need more! This one ends with a WAIT WHAT HAPPEN?!?!? The author did good with that!Amazing writing, easy to lose yourself in the book, and oh my yumminess!! I am dying to know when the next book comes out!I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (RBTL)FIVE BLACK HEARTED FAIRIES

    I have been tired of vampire books recently, but I couldn’t put this one down. Both books in the series are rather short, almost serial length. My only complaint was that I wanted more. The ending of this one left me shaking my head going, “Oh holy shit! I did NOT see that coming!” Now, I cannot wait to read the next one. All I know is she needs to come on with it so I can figure out what the hell is going on with Rider.

    First, in order to understand the main characters in this novel, you should read the prequel Love and Blood. I’d advise not reading this review if you haven’t, as it will be a spoiler.As Bronwyn begins to see a different side of Ronan, she becomes more confident that she made the right choice. Leaving Rider behind was hard, but her love for Ronan was too strong to ignore. Each day, he surprises her with a softer side that wasn’t apparent during her vampire infancy. Although he still has a cold side, he slowly begins to reveal parts of his life that make her understand why it’s necessary. As she learns more about his past, her past comes back to haunt them. Rider has camped out in Ronan’s territory, wreaking havoc, in the hopes of getting Bronwyn’s attention. Tempers flare as her friends blame her and put the responsibility of solving the matter on her shoulders. With Ronan’s patience wearing thin, she struggles to protect Rider from harm without damaging her relationship with Ronan.In this installment it’s easier to accept Ronan as Bronwyn’s choice, but it took a little time. The pampering and willingness to please her is an attribute he didn’t possess in the previous novels, which makes him more likeable. The unfortunate part is that I found Bronwyn less likeable. Although the characters have taken on different personalities, and I didn’t like all of the changes, it didn’t take away from the story as a whole. While I wanted to see a little more input from Bronwyn’s friends, I’ve come to appreciate the author’s method of reeling you in one book at a time. I’m hoping I’ll find out their side of the story in the next novel, which I look forward to reading.

    Blood and Sacrifice is the follow-up to Love and Blood (Blood Ties) in the Blood Ties series by Jessica Gibson. If you haven't read the previous books, I do suggest you begin with Blood Lust (Blood Ties) or Love and Blood. There's a lot of back story there, which helps to understand the world painted in this series.With that said, this story follows Bronwyn and Ronan as they sift through the aftermath and attempt to find a balance between their lives as a couple and running the inherited line of vampires. She finds herself whisked away, and molding into something she isn't. When Rider shows back up, she questions what her decision has done not only to herself, but also to him.Deep down she knows she loves Ronan, but can he truly ever love her the way she deserves to be loved?I read these books out of sequence, so my warning still stands to begin at the beginning. After reading Blood and Sacrifice, I knew I had to read the first two in the series.Being familiar with Jessica Gibson's style, it aimed to please as a lazy day read. Her pacing keeps you in the now, only back peddling when necessary, and always moving forward with the story and character development. The words come alive, and you sense as if you're there with her characters. These are my favorite types of reads.Her characters are enjoyable, though I sometimes wonder what Bronwyn sees in Ronan. He's likeable too, don't get me wrong, but I have this sense of protecting her from heartache, so nobody would ever be good enough for her.

    Ronan and Bronwyn are still very much together; Bronwyn is learning a lot more about Ronan than she had previously known and that makes her happy. Then there’s Rider, who has gone off the deep end, has become a bloody killer, he still wants Bronwyn and thinks that is what she wants. Seraph, Tuck and Carly all blame Bronwyn saying she’s the reason he has done this, which makes her angry, and feel a bit guilty. She asks Ronan to let her handle Rider, and he says okay for the time being, but don’t expect him to not step in when he feels it’s needed. This book takes us all over the globe as Ronan has to take care of his business and his children. We get a much deeper insight into Ronan in this book which makes me really happy. He isn’t just a bloody killer and vicious jerk as I had thought previously. Bronwyn has learned to be more true to who she is in this book also, while still being able to be with Ronan. I love them as a couple now, I was inclined to be against them in the beginning, but in this book see the deepness of the love they share, although like any couple they are going to fight and have bad times. This book was even better than the last, I was thrilled to find out more about the characters, I also enjoyed Ronan’s children and seeing how they all interact. The ending all but killed me, I mean wait there’s more right? I guess I got really involved with the story and was thinking hollering might change it hahaha. Thanks Jessica Gibson for a great book, I enjoyed reading it and give it 5 stars.

    I admit, after reading book one in this series, I was a little iffy on whether or not this was a series for me. I felt that in the earlier book, that Bronwyn seemed like a weak character, and she just didn't resonate well with me. This book took all of that worry, and tossed it out the window. Bronwyn is totally in her element in this book, and she turns into a strong vampire queen. I was actually a bit surprised by the entire night and day change in her personality, but I could totally see how living a year with Ronan could change a person.Bronwyn was admirable in her attempts to save Rider from pain, and I feel that this really kept the important part of her humanity in tact from the first book. Even though she knew she wasn't going to be with him, she also didn't want him to die, even though it would be the easiest route to solve her problems. I found this fantastic, because although she had changed into more of the monster type of vampire, she still kept that bit of humanity that kept her able to be a good friend.After reading this installment, I really look forward to continuing this series with the next book. I hope it comes out soon! Note: I received a free copy of this book for honest review.

    Blood & Sacrifice starts where the first book in the series left off. Bronwyn is still with Ronan (thank God) and they are traveling all over the world basically handling Ronan's vampire duties. Since killing his maker, he has inherited her line. Most of the book is based on Bronwyn and Ronan's love and complications with her ex, Rider, and his change of behavior. Rider lost his mind, so to speak, and is off just killing whomever.The plot seemed to be moving in circles. It basically focused on the love between Bronwyn and Ronan (which I was glad to see it in more depth) and Rider. What annoyed me most about this book was Bronwyn's friends and how they made it her responsibility for Rider's sad mental state. Rider is a grown man/vampire, leave it alone. The plot switched between Rider and her and Ronan's relationship, with a sprinkle of vampire politics. I like Jessica's writing in that I think she is very talented, but the plot falls flat for me. There isn't much depth in it. I found myself skipping over pages, hoping the story developed with more substance. It didn't and the action/ending seemed to arrive fairly quick.

    Jessica is such a talented writer. She never ceases to amaze me with her incredible ability to write such an awesome series with loveable characters.Bronwyn and Ronan are incredible together in this addition to the Blood Ties Series. They seem like the perfect vampire couple and are happy for the most part. Riley on the other hand is out of control and wants Bronwyn back at all costs. I can not believe the things he does in Blood and Sacrifice. Browyn's friends all come to her to try and convince her to talk to Riley and even go back to him. Of course we all know the chemistry between them. (if you don't, I suggest you read Book 1)So what is a girl to do? Ronan or Riley? PLUS a jaw dropping moment that made me squeal! ( yes I buried my face in my pillow and squealed).Overall, this series is so incredible. Being able to read the book in a night is a good thing. I love how human Jessi makes her vampires. Feeling emotions and just being them is what makes this series one of my favorites of all times. Now for the hard part...waiting for the next install!

    Review to come wtih blog tour! *strangled scream* Cliffhanger! So, in the beginning of this novel, I still didn't like Bronwyn. But I did like her relationship with Ronan as we see it currently. Sadly, we still do not get FULL details about the history and why she ran, but she does mention it briefly in passing. She is fully his queen now and I do like them as a couple. I liked Rider more, but now...Rider has gone off the deep end and everyone is blaming Bronwyn and expecting her to fix it. Fix it how? By going back with Rider? We see more vampire culture in this book as Bronwyn & Ronan flit and float from city to city, as business takes him. We see Ronan changing slightly out of his love for Bronwyn, and we see Bronwyn changing out of her love for Ronan. Together, they are coming together and starting to fit better. It is just enough to confuse you and unseat what you think you want to happen next, especially with that cliffhanger!

    I had a blast reading this book! Jessica Gibson has a way with her vampires that makes them seem so feral yet real. They actually have a lust for blood like you'd think most vamps would. Bronwyn gives in and is back with Ronan yet she still holds onto a piece of her humanity that struggles with taking innocents. She tries to find a good balance because Ronan isn't so caring in those regards. Talk about a role reversal here, Rider is back only he isn't the Rider we all knew. He is on a war path after losing Bronwyn. Thinking a savage, monster of a vamp is what she wants he loses control and becomes just that. This book had ups and downs and was such a thrilling read that I didn't want to put it down once I started! If you haven't read the first in the series...I highly suggest it and then move straight to this one! I won't spoil it but the ending had me gasping and wishing the next book was already out.

    I found it hard to decide whether I liked the vampire Bronwyn becomes in Blood and Sacrifice. To be with Ronan she has dismissed her friends, allowing Rider to go on a rampage in New york, selfishly forgetting the times they have supported her. She is now happily murdering innocent people, losing the sense of 'humanity' she was proud of in Love and Blood.Although I liked the way Jesica Gibson takes the time to explore Ronan's character further, and particularly the depth of his love for Bronwyn I felt that there was an amount of repetition in the plot which became frustrating and made me want to skip pages.The way in which Jessica Gibson leaves Blood and Sacrifice on a cliffhanger is a clever hook to keep the reader anticipating book three. I will continue with this series and would recommend it as the books are engaging but a quick read.

    This book starts off quite a while after the ending of Love and Blood. Our main character has pretty much become a completely different person and has given herself over to Ronan in practically every way that she possibly can.There is a lot more to this story than in the previous books, which I liked. The world is getting larger and we're learning more of the inner workings of the vampires. I do still have a problem with the transitions, however. It just seem too jumpy and sporadic. In my opinion, new characters aren't introduced very subtly. All of a sudden they're there when they didn't exist at first and have never been mentioned previously.There was a little surprise at the end, which I did not see coming. It makes me very curious as to what will happen next.

    I have fallen in love with Jessica Gibson's work. She has once again blown my mind. The Blood Ties series has drama with every turn of the page and keeps its readers captivated from page one. The only complaint that I have for Blood and Sacrifice was that it was too short, I wanted more. Then the cliffhanger, I mean WTH Jessi, you can not just leave me hanging like that, I need book three like NOW!! I need to know what's going on. Needless to say this series is addicting and leaves you with a book high and wanting so much more.Bronwyn is now living her life with Ronan once again even with all his flaws. However, Rider is not about to give her up, he is causing drama in Ronan's territory and isn't about to stop even if it means his life.

    OMG I think I may lose my mind! I could not believe the ending! What a cliffhanger. I must know what happens next. I really enjoyed the first book in this series but I love Blood and Sacrifice! This story is even better and full of steamy scenes with Ronan. I didn't really care for Ronan in book 1, but Jessica gives us so much more insight into his character and Bronwyn seems to bring out something in him that makes my heart thump. Ronan is much more complex than I orginally thought and I have to say I have changed sides. Go team Ronan!! I want to be his queen!Great book! Love this series! If you like hot vampires, then this series is for you!

    Jessi did it again, another great new book.Bronwyn who run off with Ronan and lives happily in Ireland, returned to the States, where she sees Rider again, but he is rogue, she does not recognize him.He tells her he will keep on doimng this till she comes back to him. Bronwyn tells him that it will never happen and he needs to stop this ad go home.Ronan is busy with his line of vampires and Bronwyn has to get use to that, She feels like she needs to chose when her friends are mad at her as well for what she "did" to Rider.Will it all work out and will she be able to be happy again.Buy the book and find out, it is worth it!I received a free copy of this book for a honest review

    This book was a little more thought out for me. There was a lot more descriptive language so we knew what was going on around us as the reader. There were some small hurdles to get over and they are home free...or so they thought. The relationship bewteen Bronwyn and Ronan are solid in this book. She made her decision wisely. The story was quick. I had it read in a matter of a few hours, but I was ok with that because I felt like the story was going somewhere. But what really got me....was the end. I was floored. You will be too. 4 out of 5 stars.

    First, I would like to thank the author Jessica Gibson for giving me this book for an honest review. I really enjoyed the story line, the characters were very well developed and the world building was good. Bronwyn is strong although I believe still finding herself. Ronin is doing better, and Rider has lost control thinking that Bronwyn really wants a monster out of control, because he does not understand that she loves Ronin. I look forward to reading more in this series.

    Wow, Jessica had me screaming for more at the end of this book. Her writing really takes you into the world of Bronwyn and Ronan. You get to experience a different side of Ronan. And you begin to understand why Bronwyn loves him so much. This series is defiantly a must read for anyone who likes vampires.

    I love this series, eventhough i dont care for ronin's possessiveness too much. I kinda wish she would have gotten with rider. I love how the story is weaved and takes you in directions you didnt expect. I hope there is more in this story, there is no way this is the end.
