They disappear into the woods at night and keep a strange secret locked in their shed. Her once calm mother is now having violent outbursts and Lexie’s little sister is hearing sinister sounds coming from the forest behind their new home. Lexie’s biggest surprise comes when she discovers the boy she has been dreaming about since her accident is living in Maine. Despite Torin’s questionable reputation, Lexie cannot resist the physical and emotional attraction pulsating between them. Animals and people in town are turning up dead and Lexie learns the strange new world she lives in has real life monsters.

From Bonnie Erina Wheeler, the author who brought you Fate Fixed, comes the second installment in the Erris Coven Series, Blood Twist.

Braden Murphy knew he was going to die. There was a twist to his family secret – one that was forced upon him from the time he was a child. For years he envisioned his final days and tried to be strong enough to leave his family. Now that it was time, he was ready to make good on a deadly promise. Except for one unexpected glitch, a raven haired beauty insisted on joining him.
Liz Sanders thought her best friend’s stepfamily was weird, but she never would have guessed they were werewolves. Now Liz must travel with a secretive half-vampire in search of a lycanthropy cure. Landing in a nest full of blood thirsty vampires wasn’t on the agenda, but neither was falling in love.
Braden is tempting, but Liz’s feelings for him are complicated. She wishes he would open up about his past and give her a reason to trust him.
Just when Liz thinks she can let her guard down, she’s forced to confront the evil that has been stalking Braden’s past for years. Death is here and ready to destroy everything they've fought to save.

Fate Fixed Review (no spoilers)
I truly loved this book; it’s a great start to what I can see as a great series. I was hooked from about page 10, well not sure, but something like that. It’s full of mystery and it was about halfway or more that I finally found out what Torin is, it had me fascinated. It’s not what you think, you go into this now knowing for sure, as its not a story like any other.
I won’t spoil it for you, as I had no idea what supernaurals we were dealing with, and as soon as I thought I knew, I was proven wrong. The love story is very sweet too. I really liked that part as well. It’s not the traditional love at first sight kind of thing. Torin and Lexie dreamed of each other months before they even met, so it’s like they fell in love before they meet.
I don‘t want to say much more, but will say this, it’s got some hot guys too for those who really like that, and personalities too, its all there.
I was intrigued and enthralled all at the same time.
Go get this book, you won’t be sorry, if you like the paranormal books like me, you will love this. I am so glad I have book 2 Blood Twist already, so I can read right away.
5 out of 5 stars for me. The writing was top notch, and had an easy time flowing through this book.
I was provided a copy of this book from the author for my honest review for the book tour.
If you liked my review, I would love the support at Amazon if you could mark my review as Helpful, link is Here.
You could also like it at Goodreads too, or instead. Here. Thanks.
Fate Fixed Book One ~ Excerpt
Chapter One (just first part)
Lexie ran with a confidence only found in dreams. She propelled her body through a lush forest that was full of rich colors and intoxicating scents. She knew where the trail would take her and smiled knowing she would see him again. As she rounded the corner of the worn trail, he stood there motionless. Surprise once again filled those intense blue eyes of his. She could never see his whole face, but his eyes always captivated her, drawing her in. Wrapping her arms around him, she breathed in his heady scent. His arms encircled her and she hoped the moment would last, that she could will herself to stay long enough this time to hear the sound of his voice wash over her. There was so much to say, but the sudden vile presence of death crawled up from behind her as her words turned into a scream….
Lexie reached out and felt the cool space next to her on the bed. As always, she was alone. The images were so real. As much as the ending always terrified her, she could almost smell his pleasing scent on her pajamas and feel his touch. Most of her dreams were easily forgotten, but not when she dreamt of him. She had been having the same one, with a few slight variations for months. Even while lost in slumber, she always recognized him and hoped for a different outcome, but it never happened.
Of all mornings, she wished it had a happy ending.
Mornings were never her specialty, but the hurried sounds of her new stepbrothers banging through the small condo made this particular morning disturbing. They awoke her with their obnoxious shouting of directions and generalized complaints. Over the last month of getting to know them, it had been their noise that required the biggest adjustment. She no longer lived in a calm home with just her mom Ruby and sister Ella, she now lived in what felt like a testosterone zoo.
Or a psychotic reality show.
Stretching across her bed with a complacent smile, Lexie decided not to allow them the privilege of making her last morning in her childhood home unpleasant. They could try rushing her all they wanted but she would take her sweet time getting out of bed.
Once her heart rate settled from the dream’s frightful ending, the warmth and fulfillment of his embrace left her feeling content and flushed. As she rolled onto her side and hugged her pillow, she grasped on to the lasting image of him just behind her eyelids and wished her dreams of him didn’t always end so abruptly.
She never met anyone like him – tall and dark haired, he was intense but beautiful. Although he was an illusion, thinking of him was comforting. As a rule, Lexie never bought into the idea of ESP or the guy on TV acting like The Ghost Whisperer, but sometimes she wished she could. If there was a possibility he was really waiting for her in the woods somewhere, she
would shake inside out with excitement and search the great northeast to find him.
My subconscious created perfection for me. It’s just a shame he doesn’t really exist.
With that thought, her enthusiasm faded. Even if she did find him here, she would be leaving him behind, just like she was leaving her home, friends and the remnants of her dad.
Why Lexie was being forced to move to the “Moose Capital of the World” was not her favorite topic to think about. She had so many plans for her senior year of high school, plans that would form lifelong memories with her best friend Liz.
They were going to hop on a train and catch a Broadway show in New York, maybe visit some colleges in Boston, and most definitely skip a little school to go to Six Flags.
What will I do without her? She has kept me going through this last year.
Excerpt from Book 2 Blood Fixed
(Warning, if you didn’t read Fate Fixed book One, skip this excerpt if you don’t want spoilers for the first book)
Chapter One (Just first Part)
“The truth, as the light, makes blind.”
The large house was empty. Liz peeked through each room carefully before unpacking her bag of groceries in the kitchen. Why she insisted on spending the afternoon in the old manor house was a mystery, even to her. After all, the two dead werewolves she found in the basement on the evening she arrived would have been a turnoff for anyone else.
Wisps of black hair fell across her eyes as she rinsed a pile of Yukon gold potatoes under a stream of cold water. She had never made potato salad for a coven of half-vampires before, but she was up for trying new things. Other than the statement that they didn’t drink human blood, their dietary needs weren’t discussed in detail. If her Aunt’s salad recipe didn’t tickle their taste buds, Liz couldn’t help them. It was one of the few foods she knew how to cook.
Glancing around the sizable room, it was pretty easy to guess where Lexie’s mom, Ruby, would have stored her pots and cutlery. After spending years hanging around Lexie’s childhood home, Liz had learned that Ruby was a creature of habit. Saucepans were always kept under the sink, just like knives and forks would be in the drawer closest to the stove.
The last forty-eight hours certainly created a new slant on the way she viewed her world. Liz thought things were tough enough when Lexie moved from Connecticut to live in Maine, butafter two weeks of Lexie’s absence and only being able to contact her through snail mail, Liz had enough. Climbing in her old Chevy Cavalier, she headed to Erris determined to make her best friend move back to Connecticut for her final year of high school.
If that didn’t work, she had a backup plan– she would insist upon staying with Lexie in Erris until Christmas vacation.
When she arrived on Lexie’ s doorstep, Liz expected a warm welcome from her best friend. But when she entered the house, she only heard a mournful wail coming from deep within the basement. Instantly, she was alarmed. Her mind went through a list of possible scenarios before assuming Maxim hogtied his family for laughing at his unibrow or something else perturbing.
