For the mythic Blood Stone has been broken and doomsday evil unleashed upon the world of humans in the form of The Others. To save the innocents, Nial and his kind must lift a centuries’ old veil of secrecy, revealing who they truly are. This has never gone well in the past—will it be different this time? Maybe, if three unlikely heroes can be convinced to join the fight. When an action movie star, a deaf empath and an ex-soldier join forces, the action explodes—both on the battle front and in the bedroom. Patrick Sauvage, Hollywood A-list actor, ‘comes out’ as a vampire. Good thing he’s learned a few extra skills as an action star—because he needs a new career. What actress wants to star opposite a guy who gives new meaning to the term ‘drop dead gorgeous’? Dominic Castellano lost his hearing in a freak accident—and everything he loved along with it. But he has other talents to wield in the coming war—he can now sense what others can’t. And his charisma casts a spell on both Patrick and the third member of their triad. Blythe Murray, LA single mom and ex-soldier, would rather forget her military service—but she’ll resurrect it when The Others invade their city. She’ll give her all to fight evil, and protect her children. But no human woman can withstand the powerful and instant bond between her, Patrick and Dominic. The world is at war, the future uncertain, the enemy nearly unstoppable—so why fight the best thing they’ve ever found? The three can only hope it will be enough to carry them through the devastation to come....

blood revealed Reviews
I felt apathetic towards Blythe & her children. I have an amazingly strong dislike of Dominic & felt sorry for Patrick. I thought Dominic was self centered & treated Patrick poorly. I skipped anything involving Dominic Blythe & Patrick after Dominic's cheating. Worse romance in the series. The only reason I didn't DNF this was bc it included real movement in the overall story arc & a majority of that movement occurred from passed characters POV. I will read the next installment. Pet-peeves: cheating & kids
It's definitely looking like nothing is going to top the first one of the series. In this one, the Blood Stone has been broken and the Others, including the monsters, the Summanus are unleashed on the human world. The vampires, in order to prepare humans and avert disaster, reveal themselves but don't get a great response. Until the Summanus begin eating people... Leading the charge are Patrick, the Hollywood actor and alcoholic who recently turned vampire, Dominic the deaf mind-reader and a new human ally Blythe, who is an ex-soldier and single mother...as well as the usual cast of characters who are really beginning to amass. With this turn of events the series takes on a post-apocalyptic feel as characters head out at night to hunt the monsters and return home during the day to recharge. This isn't necessarily bad per se. It's just different. There is a lot of setting and character switching - one minute we're with our mains and then suddenly it's Ric and Ilaria, then it's Nial and his predicament, then it's Roman and Kate or some other group of people. It reminded me of a soap opera when all I wanted was my particular ship to be on screen, not these other characters. I get it, it's all tied up in the bigger picture plot with the Others and everything, but it got frustrating jumping from place to place. As for the romance, the typical threesome relationship emerges here. First with Patrick and Dominick, who instantly connect and have very sweet, if too brief, first-time-with-a-guy sex. These two really were my favorite couple... They start a relationship. Until they argue and are apparently broken up (didn't realize it was official) because suddenly Dominick is having sex with Blythe and poor Patrick is pretty broken-hearted to be all alone (especially since he also has a thing for Blythe). Then all of a sudden it's the three of them together and Patrick and Dominick and Blythe are having rather bland threesome sex. And Patrick and Dominick never discuss their initial problems, there's never any apology or discussion about the fact that Dominick was more or less unfaithful - there's hardly any discussion about their frickin relationship at all. It's as though suddenly they're all getting along wonderfully and there were never any problems to begin with. It irked me to no end. And that unfortunately was the problem with the whole thing. There just wasn't enough balance between action plot and romance plot...not so much time spent on it as it is focus and wrap up. The threesome needed so much more attention and details worked out, but there were so many other plot lines to follow that it couldn't be done at this length. And so the romance aspect of this story was underdeveloped and IMHO the story suffered because of it. There wasn't as much connection in the threesome as there had been with Winter, Sebastian and Nial for example - those three had some serious steam and connection and I missed that here.
I was happy and disappointed that this wasn’t the last book in the series. Happy because the breaking of the bloodstone and requisite release of the others was freaking fascinating to me. Disappointed because the book wasn’t long enough!The thing that sticks out for me most is the setting, where Blythe lives anyway, since it was where I was born and raised. I kept trying to place where they were in relation to my memories of the city. I wish I could tell where the majority of the story took place and wish that TCP was able to put in some landmarks. Kind of like how the Eiffel tower shows Paris, the Statue of Liberty means NYC and the Arch for St. Louis etc. The landmark that always sticks out for me is the arrowhead on a hill/mountain in San Bernardino. Anyone who has been there knows that if you can see the northern part of the valley/city the arrowhead on the side is visible. I remember looking for it through the airplane window the times I flew home.Anyway, this was my favorite addition to the series yet. The threat of the others was practically tangible and I thought there would be some scary stuff from three sides. The scariest of all of the races, were those that only came out at night, smelled realllly bad, and had a real omfg sort of reproductive cycle. I won’t say much on that, but I will say that she did a really good job of creating a scary ass monster. Her descriptions for the other two races were intriguing also and I wanted to read more about them, mainly the winged races. When it comes to the relationship in the story I think she created two men who do a good job fulfilling most women’s fantasies, lol. I mean an A-list, action star, great actor; newly a vampire and an empathic man with Latino good looks who has a sensitive side that you don’t learn the details of until you read the story. The best thing about both men was how they handled her kids. I know to some it might look like a snap shot of the Waltons at times, but I think she did a really good job of depicting teenagers, vampires, and all of that in a practically apocalyptic setting. Her kids aren’t perfect, her son was a real butthead a few times, but she did a really good job creating characters that seemed real to me ... despite the book being a vampire ménage urban fantasy book anyway, lol.Blythe, like most of Tracy Cooper-Posey heroines, is a kick-butt sort of woman. She is strong but has her weaknesses. I haven’t read all of her books, but this is the first I read where the heroine had to take into account her children with her life decisions. I’m not an expert on PTSD so I can’t really comment on that part, but I can say that I wasn’t to wild about how anti-depressants were portrayed. I know there are a lot of thoughts about their uses and how they affect different people. However, I never got it when books mention that they made the user drowsy, their mind foggy, or some similar reactions to the drugs. I can say as a person who has taken them for years that I never got a reaction like those when I took them. In fact, they do the total opposite for me.Patrick is just super sexy to me. I adore how he was more of a private person and wasn’t too thrilled about that “wild and crazy” sort of lifestyle that actors are shown to portray. I was on the fence about his control as he was a new vampire and admired his reasoning behind why he wanted to become a vampire since at times it seemed a bit extreme. He just worked for me all around. Same as Dominic, whose back-story was very sad, but how he compensated for his hearing loss and what he gained despite of it made for a great read.As to Nial and the revelation of vampires and their actual role to humanity I will say that was neatly done. I easily felt the frustrations they experienced when the humans were being pig-headed jerk-faces. I can’t wait to read the final book, I think, in the series since it will wrap things up and since there is a whole book that should be dedicated to how all of the races will learn to live together it should be really interesting.
Fast-paced, action-packed, sexy as anything story with the fate of the world on the line!!Nial, leader of the vampires, gathers his followers and prepares to reveal themselves to the world. The mythic Blood Stone has been broken and an evil has been unleashed on the work in the form of The Others. This secret has been held for centuries, and prior reveals have not gone well. Unlikely heroes join the fight; an action movie star, a deaf empath and an ex-soldier – creating action on both the battle front and in the bedroom.Incredible view of the new world where humans know they are sharing the world with not only vampires who have lived among them for millennium, but also The Others who now threaten everything they hold dear. We see the impact on the vampires who are now “outed”, and those at the center of the fight for humanity. As Patrick, Dominic and Blythe come together to fight and love, it is as if you become them and feel, fear and love as they do. As always a seatbelt is required for a story from Tracy!!*A complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review*
This is the first book of this series that I didn't rate as 5 stars. I think it's mostly because I wanted an ending - not necessarily a happy one but it seems like the story of Patrick, Dominic and Blythe was not the central thread of this story. While I love hearing about the other 3 families (NIal/Sebastian/Winter, Kate/Garret/Roman, Ilaria/Rick/Marcus) it seemed a little mean that this latest trio didn't get more of their own story. I would have loved to hear more about Dominic and his music, Patrick and his past struggles/being a new vampire, and Blythe and her back story. Also it didn't feel like she's dealt with her issues.I suspect that this is one of those books where the bigger story of the Others began with this book and will continue with the next and final book. But just on its own, I felt a little a little deflated.On the plus side though, while reading through the "Other books by Tracy Cooper-Posey" at the end I noticed that there is going to be another book in the Kiss across series. I'm so excited and I can't wait to read it. I really miss Veris, Brody and Taylor.
The Blood Stone has been broken and the threat of The Others is real. The choice has been made for the vampires to come out of the closest so to speak due to the threat to humanity. Author Tracy Cooper-Posey touches on the effects of this war in and on the daily lives of people and vampires who are trying to make a difference. Many of the characters from the previous books make a major appearance to add realism and depth to this well written story. Patrick Sauvage a once troubled actor and friend to Garrett, Roman and Katherine has been turned and now must fight new demons that aren't drugs and alcohol. Empath Dominic Castellano is deaf but was heal regained his hearing by way of his empathic ability. Ex soldier and mother to three teens Blythe Murray, are all inexplicably drawn together in this fight for humanity and healing there own private wounds! You don't want to miss this heart pounding, sometimes heart wrenching and sensually erotic adventure that left me breathless and wanting more!Thank you Tracy for another excellent book that takes my imagination to new places!
Can man work with their nightmares come true, to save the worldA fascinating story of vampires and what their true purpose with humankind is. The author has given us the paranormal, romance, and horror all together in a modern day story when centuries old secrets have to be revealed. A world filled with monsters that must be fought by uniting man and those they thought were only made-up tales told in movies and books. Through fear and prejudices they must now learn to live and fight together. With old loves and new, lives lost and saved, both races and sexes must become warriors to save the world. But will that be enough? No spoilers here, just letting you know what you can expect when you pick up this book; action, fear, love , and so much more. This author never let's her readers down and this is no exception.
