BLOG TOUR: Review and Giveaway "Sweet Blood of Mine" by John Corwin

I am so happy to be a part of this blog tour!!! This was such a great book, I am glad I get to share it with all of you. Keep reading for my review, more information on the tour, and a chance to win a paperback copy of Sweet Blood of Mine!! Enjoy!

Book Synopsis (from
From Mega Nerd to Super Stud.

Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the "nerd" crowd certainly don't win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school's Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing?

Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a "come hither, Justin" vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she's no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees.

While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn't know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn't find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

My Thoughts: 
What a pleasant surprise. I'll be honest here, I almost gave up on this book. About a third of the way through the book, I just didn't feel like reading any more. I thought it was a little slow and had a lot of unnecessary things going on.

The reason I finished it is because I am a part of the blog tour and let me say this, I am glad I did. About half way through it really picked up and I was completely sucked in. It turned out to be far better than my expectations and was quite different than what I am used to reading.

I was literally laughing for most of this book. It is THAT funny. John has a knack for humor and it was laugh out loud hysterical. Justin is such a great character and he has clearly spent too much time playing Kings and Castles. Another thing I really enjoyed about SBoM is that it depicts high school very well. We get to see just how cliques mingle (or don't!) and it's really quite similar to "real life".

While reading, you may think this book is predictable (and some parts are) but overall there are enough twists that it will keep you guessing. This is definitely worth checking out!
