Book Review: Hot Blooded

Hot Blooded (Wolf Springs Chronicles #2) 

Hot Blooded (Wolf Springs Chronicles, #2)What do you run from?

Katelyn had only been in Wolf Springs a short time before she was bitten by a werewolf. And now she carries that creature's curse in her veins.

But she's not alone. Wolf Springs is home to a hidden family of werewolves, the Fenners - who swear none of them bit her. Apparently there's a monster on the loose - something wild and uncontrollable.

And to make matters worse, Katelyn's struggling to resist her own animal urges. Especially around Trick and Justin. Should she follow her heart - or her instincts?

Paperback, 436 pages
Published December 6th 2012 by Reynolds & Jones (first published December 1st 2012)

Katelyn's life is about to change . . . Forever. 
Stuck between a rouge, a dementia alpha, and her own insecurity. Can Katelyn really abide by the laws of the pack or will she be force to become an outsider, a rouge just to have her freedom once again.
Torn being human and wolf, katelyn must find the balance while a pack merely falls apart and family turn on one another
It's the matter of life and death to keep the werewolves a secret but the question remains

I give this a 2.5 Cat's Tails Up, the matter of the fact it I really didn't care for this one and it lacks an clear direction, overall it was missing components of what made the first book exciting and readable. 

MEOW . . . MEOW . . . MEOW
Okay this wasn't all that exciting in the second book, it had no thrill or sense of "danger" that was built up in the first book. Actually the majority of this book was quiet boring, it seems all over the place as well for the characters. I also got no sense of how the werewolves laws are followed even though the book does included a list of the law but still you don't see much of an enforcement.

I'm really not liking Justin all that much since he's not willing to stand against the alpha because Mr. Fenner is losing his mind and losing sense of reality which just may put the whole pack in danger. For Katelyn she is just kind of stuck in the middle of it all and basically lost just about everything who she is or who she was before she got bit by a werewolf.

I didn't like the fact that there were a lack of interaction between Katelyn and Cordelia, I also can't really understand why Cordelia was "disowned" by her own family, her own father but I'm guessing it has to do with his dementia taking over. I know that Cordelia didn't bit Katelyn but then it's the matter of finding out who did. Cordelia have had it rough and it would have really been nice to see what was going on in her world/mind when her father disowned her. 

I don't get why trick was absent from this book and I would have thought that there's be some love triangle between katelyn, Justin and trick. That how the first book kind of set it up but I have a clear suspicious that Justin and/or trick had something to do with katelyn being bit. I don't know why I have that sense but I do. There's just so many thing that were left out, barely mention that I would hope the thrid book ties it all back up again.
