*Review* Blood Tree #2 by Scarlett Dawn

Where there is light, there is dark.
The two halves make a whole…
Or do they constantly battle for dominance?

Juliet Julius has watched her daughter, Kenna, grow into a fierce young woman. She has protected her. She has guarded her. She has sacrificed all she had to give. And she tried her hardest to keep her from the Dark.

But now it's Juliet’s turn.
Her social life is no longer on hold.
Juliet can shimmy her hips whenever she wants.

But it’s too bad those hips attract so much attention. Juliet might just have a sinister problem of her own. In the form of one hell of an alpha male who wants nothing more than to destroy her…and to sensually devour her body.

*This is a 20,000 word novella*

I received a copy of this story for an honest review.

What I Loved: Blood Tree #2 is the perfect companion novella to Blood Tree #1. Where Keena Julius gave readers an innocent but eager introduction to the world of Light and Dark elves, her mother Juliet gives a more mature and humorous take on the struggle of belonging to a complex world of magic. This was a super easy read that left me eager for the next installment.

What I Didn’t Love: While this is Juliet’s story, I would have a loved a few more scenes of her interacting with her daughter Kenna. For a woman who made major sacrifices for her daughter the bond between the pair didn’t come off as super strong in the story.

Favorite Quotes:

"I pulled her in close to my side, and silently wondered how long I had before she realized moms weren't always right. That we didn't have all the answers. That a parent can make a mistake. But, dammit, I would protect her until the end of time."

"His temper was a monster only he could tame. But, dammit, I always tried to help."

The Blood Tree novellas are well written and a nice dose of paranormal romance. Don't miss out.

Happy reading.
