All's Fair in Love and Blood by Jennifer Peel


They are both out for blood, but could it end in love?

Scarlett Armstrong and Kane Hudson have a tangled past involving not only their families but their own failed love affair. Now, eight years later, to make things more complicated, they’re both in the running to become the next CEO of Scarlett’s family’s business, Armstrong Labs, a privately held blood plasma company. It all comes down to who presents the best business plan to the board of directors.

For Scarlett, it’s a matter of continuing her family’s legacy and hoping that her father will be proud of her once and for all. After all, she’s spent her entire life pushing her own dreams aside preparing for this role. And perhaps she would like a little sweet revenge against the man who stole her heart and never gave it back. Kane, on the other hand, is determined to reach his goal of becoming the CEO of a Fortune 500 company before his forty-fifth birthday and proving to Scarlett she’s meant to follow her own dreams.

But things don’t go according to plan for either Scarlett or Kane when they realize that perhaps they’re fighting for the wrong thing. With love and blood on the line, which one will come out on top?

(said in my best sing-songy voice)  I've got a new book boyfriend!   I've got a new book boyfriend!

Yes, it's true and you will too once you read this book.  Kane.  K.A.N.E.  KANE!  Oh my goodness, this one is going to be hard to get over.  I have a Kane hangover.  And a book hangover.  Maybe an everything hangover?  I really want to go back and read this book again right now but I almost don't dare.  It just wouldn't be fair to other books.  Or my family.

Kane.  Why do I love him?  Let me count the ways.  Although, to be fair, there was a point in this book that I was very, very upset with him.  Very upset.  I got over it though.  I think what I loved most about Kane was that he really saw Scarlett.  From the very beginning, he saw her.  Kane is driven, smart and determined.  He has charisma and charm oozing from his pores.  He doesn't back down or shy away from Scarlett's moments.  He pushes her to recognize her dreams and work hard but to also enjoy herself along the way.  Kane is yummy.  And, except for the time I was upset with him, I adored him.  Well, okay.  I still adored him even when I was upset.  It happens.

Yes, I loved Scarlett too.  I loved her loyalty to her dad.  I loved how she loved and I loved how smart she was.  She was fantastic.

I think it goes without saying at this point but just for the sake of actually saying it, I loved this book.  It captured my emotions and my heart.  I was entertained and I always love to be entertained when I read.  Here's an example of something that made me laugh:

"Eva had even Spanxed my thighs.  Which was too bad, as they would have been clapping for me as I walked down the aisle and I could have used the encouragement."  hahahaha

This book will be counted as one of my favorites by this author.  It was exactly what I needed to read and hit all my sweet spots.  Love.
