    1. Well, that fucking sucked. In an awesome way.I don't really want to review this book. Reviewing it means letting it go and I want to hold onto the hurt a little longer. But it's time to suck it up.Because I love spoiling things for myself I read the blurbs for this entire series, so I knew exactly what was coming in this book. That's right, people, ugly crying. Snotty crying.I can't even talk about it. I don't know what to say. It's horrible. It's beautiful. I want more. I never want to read thi [...]


    2. Brilliant meticulous torture. Emotionally epic. Ultimate loss. First of all-It is imperative you have the background of the first book before boarding this heart-twisting ride. It’s crucial to properly understand the continuation of this series. Second-Muster courage, for you will need it.Having read and adored Prey, I was aware of the emotional demon drop I was surrendering myself to. It was no surprise that there would be grief, heartache and sorrow.It was a surprise however, how genuine the [...]


    3. This book is tighter than the first one in which Speed gave us the background and backstory. Now she immediately went down to the nitty gritty and made me walk with Roan, the book made me feel like he did:Like him, my focus was on Paris and their life togetherLike him, I’ve been expecting what happened and yes you do prepare yourself but the knock is still hard.Like him, I was scared to go forwards.Like him, I’m feeling the loneliness now that the book is finished, bereft.(view spoiler)[Goin [...]


    4. The story was great, the end was heartbreaking.I know this series goes on, for several more books, but in this moment, I cant imagine how. I know Roan is the real lead to the story, and that the next book will probably blow me away. I just can't imagine not having Paris by his side. think the author had guts, to put out a character that we would fall in love with, knowing that they would be killed off. That's good, authors should be fearless, and tell their story their way, and not how people ex [...]


    5. WARNING: VERY SPOILERY ON HOW THIS BOOK ENDSThe story starts with Roan taking a case from Matt (the "puppy" boy who has huge crush on him from book (1), who wants Roan to look for his missing friend. But as the investigation goes along, the missing friend turns up dead, and the witness of her disappearance is also stabbed. Roan must sort through a whole bunch of suspected friends; and who might wants the girl killed. However, while doing the investigation, Roan must also struggle to keep his hea [...]


    6. This was such sad and emotional read and it was worth it. Sure, I knew what was coming. If you’ve read book 1 you know too but I thought it was really well done. The ending was perfect. It was sad but it left me with a sense of peace.The mystery really took a back seat to what was going on with Paris. It was fine and it moved the story along but it was mostly used to show just how well Roan has adapted to the virus.I’m really liking this series and I’m looking forward to book 3.Thanks to m [...]


    7. Bloodlines is the follow up to Infected Prey which brought us into the world of Roan McKichan, a private detective infected with the lion strain. In Roan's world, a cat virus -very similar to AIDS- is on the loose, with the tiger strain being the most dangerous and, ultimately: fatal. And Paris, Roan's husband, is infected by itBloodlines was another solid story by Andrea Speed. The author knows how to tell a good urban fantasy tale, in where she weaves an interesting plot with great characters. [...]


    8. 3.5 stars I was taking my time before picking up this book, because I knew what was coming. In Bloodlines I was able to get to know Roan and Paris better and I loved their interaction and their relationship; their ability to function without a lot of words is fascinating. Once again, the mystery was well written and very catchy. I won't say much else, because I can't write an elaborate review after reading this heartbreaking story. But it was one of those things that was so huge, so impossible t [...]


    9. You know, I wish Andrea Speed was a crappy writer, because then I wouldn't give a crap about these characters, but this is not the case at all. This is technically the 3rd book in her Infected Series, which started off as an online free story. The first commercially released book Infected: Prey contains the first two "books" of the series. In all of these books we are introduces to a society where the cat virus is spread much like AIDS. There are virus children and people that get infected. Ther [...]


    10. This sucks. I hate and love this story. The new details we learn about Roan as he deals with Paris is astounding and heartbreaking. The case while good is ancillary to what is happening with them and their marriage. The rest of the review contains major spoilers so I've marked it as such.(view spoiler)[Jesus, my eyes are like hot coals in my face. Paris's death while we knew it was coming was incredibly painful. Roan is right, being the witness to events is actually harder than enduring them you [...]


    11. Oh my goodness. I haven't cried this hard in a while. I will be walking into work with puffy eyes and a heavy heart. I mean, I knew what was going to happen because certain tossers can't put a spoiler tag on their review. But knowing and reading it in that moment was two completely different things. It was so heartbreaking. From the beginning to the end just reading about it left a dull ache in my chest. I mean Roan and Paris get married and instead of spending their time in married bliss, it's [...]


    12. There's still an occasional clunkiness and the book gets heavy but the emotional impact is immense. I think this book is smoother than the first, there's less information to get across, though we're still learning about this world that's both familiar and different.The book could be a trigger for people, from the beginning there's the theme of impending death with both a powerlessness and beauty to it. There's no long speeches, we're carried along close to Roan's heels solving his puzzle and yet [...]


    13. This is not a proper review, because it's impossible to write a review for a book which strikes all the naked emotions of loss. This story stripped me raw and made me cry buckets of tears and not because it deals with loss in a sappy way, but because it deals with it with honesty. The writing style is terse and it's perfect to describe the desperate emptiness Roan's feels, to convey Paris' dignity in his choice of what to do with his life.Love flows throughout the book, in Roan's contained grief [...]


    14. “This was how the world ended. Not with a bang, but with a whimper.”“I'm always going to be with you, you know. As long as you remember me, I will exist. Memory is a form of existence, life after death.” If you read this and want to destroy yourself afterward then listen to M83 - Before The Dawn Heals Us. For reasons. I'm crying again.


    15. This was the second book in the Infected series and a worthy continuation of Prey. I wasn't all that impressed with the detective story but the relationship bit was done very well and it was very movie despite the foretold ending. I'm looking forward to reading Book 3:) Thanks to my reading buddies Sofia, R * A Reader Obsessed, Otila and Rosa for the fun experience:)


    16. The second installment in this paranormal series definitely pulls no punches when it comes to emotional impact and pain. In this world, shifters are either born with a certain cat virus or infected with it; each with their own complicated consequences. Our MC Roan is the rare born shifter who is actually not encumbered with the oft sickly side effects of the virus - he is slowly evolving into a stronger human/cat mix, able to shift at will and maximize his powers for any and all situations. His [...]


    17. ”You should charge admission into your life. It’s a trip.”There is no possible way to explain the gut punch this book threw at me. Tears stinging and threatening. Stomach and heart knotted. Trying to hold on. Then all of a sudden, I’m just an all out hand over my mouth, tears streaming down, big 'ole ball of sobs and snot! Cried myself to sleep actually. And….I would do it all over again! Andrea Speed’s characters, world, and writing pulled me in with emotion, humor, mystery, and lov [...]


    18. (view spoiler)[Couldn't read my kindle for snot & tears at the end of this book'M83's - Before the Dawn Heals Us' is named as Paris's final soundtrack to die to: youtube/watch?v=WAkFPN"If there's an afterlife after all, I'll see you there. I'll save you a good seat."(view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]


    19. It's been a while since I actually cried at the end of a book, but this one did it. Damn. Well written, with a real plot, a deep love story, and the honesty not to dodge the bullet that was coming with a miracle of some kind. I will reread this one often, but I am deeply grateful that the sequel is already published so I can open it immediately.


    20. A normal work of fiction should not affect someone as deeply as this book affected me. Obviously it's not a normal story, but one that grabbed hold of my heart in the first book Infected: Prey and clutched and strangled it even more in this one. This was like two different books for me - one involving the mystery that needed to be solved and the other only about Paris. I confess I had read a couple of spoilers before I started. I confess I had to set my e-reader aside a few times and read someth [...]


    21. As some of you know, I do not give out many 5 star ratings. But I had to for this book for the bottom line here - I have not stopped crying for some time now. That suggests to me that the characters were so well written to evoke such an expression of emotion from me, that even though I knew what was coming, I was still so torn up at the end that it actually happened. I also have never hated an author more (hee - not really Andrea, but right now if you were in front of me, I might actually slap y [...]


    22. I now feel completely numb and have just cried for the last twenty minutes or so but what a perfect final day for Paris and Roan. I love that Paris did all he could to prepare Roan and plan for when he's not going to be around, making sure he'll be surrounded by friends and not left to wallow in his grief. I think the only way forward for me is to dive headfirst into the next book Life After Death.


    23. I’ve loved the world building and the characters in Andrea Speed’s Infected series, so much so that even though I knew this was going to be a sad book without any hope of a HEA, I still got my box of tissues ready and sat down to read.The book follows on from Infected: Prey. Roan and Paris have just recently been married in Canada and since then Paris’ health has been deteriorating at a fast rate, as each time the virus forces him to change into a tiger, he grows closer to death. Ironicall [...]


    24. Warning - spoilers ahead! I didn't even bother with tags on this one.Oh, and my other warning - stock up on the Kleenex, folks, because this one is a tear-jerker. ^^^Me, right now.^^^This will be short and to-the-point, because what can I really say about this book? I knew what was coming from page 1, and even though it broke my heart like I knew it would, it was totally worth the heart-ache. Roan and Paris's love is pretty epic, and their tragedy completely overshadows the mystery plot of this [...]


    25. I'd been spoiled already and so I knew Paris's death was coming, and yet I still bawled my eyes out. It started around 94%, that sort of tearing up, quick breathing thing, and then I was just crying and crying some more. I think I used something like 20 tissues. After I finished, I just put my phone down and cried for a while, then got myself under control, only to get all weepy again when I started writing this well, it isn't even a review. Whatever this is. One thing I am glad about- I was wor [...]


    26. 4 STARSBE STILL MY HEARTDOOH MY GAAAAWDTHIS WAS SOOOOO, SADIT WAS ALSOPowerful.BeautifulTearfulHeart-WrenchingLovingAndSo Gut-Wrenching Sad.I have no more words as my mind is mush right now.ooh Paris❤


    27. 4.5 starsBloodlines was much better than the first one. It still had some of the same writing issues, but it was less irritating in this book. I'm sure this was because Roan and Paris stole the show and now I'm able to ignore most of it. There seemed to be less parenthesis, however the long-ass descriptions still drove me nuts. I was not expecting this type of heart-ache. You could feel the love between Roan and Paris on every page. Even though I was warned, I was still hoping for miracle. I hav [...]


    28. I had a slow day at work and decided to finish reading this in my office, which turned out to be a big mistake. Had to close the door and have a quiet cry.


    29. Wow, amazing and so much better than the first book.I'm still disappointed that there are no on-the-page sex scenes but the great character development makes up for it. Roan is still a little too focused on work but that's what makes him such a great investigator. Paris is simply wonderful and Canadian :DMake sure to have some tissuesis one is a doosey!!!


    30. I've never cried like this over a book. It's just so heartbreaking and if I re-read this I'm going to cry like a baby again.Can I give it 10* ?1* for beautiful writing.1* for a good plot.1* for solid characters (I love all the characters here including the bad guys)1* for Paris and his lovable traits.1* for Roan and his strength to love Paris after he was betrayed by his former lover.1* for Roan and his strength to love Paris even though he knows the ending of their relationship.1* for Paris and [...]
