Sweet Blood of Mine by John Corwin Blog Tour and Giveaway
5 years, 4 months ago Posted in: Blog, Giveaway, Nicole's Review, Review 3

What we have all been been waiting for is finally here! Sweet Blood of Mine is out! I read this one months ago in beta stage and just finished reading the finished novel and it was just as great the second go around as well.

From Goodreads:

Sweet Blood of Mine, Book One of the Overworld Chronicles

From Mega Nerd to Super Stud.

Justin Case and women do not mix. Man boobs, a love of Kings and Castles, and being tight with the “nerd” crowd certainly don’t win him any points either. After rescuing Katie, his crush, it turns out she might not be the girl he thought she was, while Elyssa, the school’s Goth Girl, turns out to be more. Can high school get any more confusing?

Determined to improve himself, he joins a gym and meets a sexy girl that just oozes a “come hither, Justin” vibe. Until she attacks him in the parking lot, and Justin realizes she’s no ordinary girl but a being with supernatural speed and strength. After a narrow escape and an excruciating migraine headache, he wakes up with supernatural abilities all his own: speed, strength, and the ability to seduce every woman he sees.

While that might sound like the perfect combo for any hormonal teen, Justin is a hopeless romantic who wants his first time to be special. Is that too much to ask for? But he doesn’t know what he is or how to stop his carnal urges. One thing is clear: If he doesn’t find answers there are other more sinister supernaturals who would like nothing better than to make him their eternal plaything and do far worse than kill him.

My Review:

When John first asked if I would beta read this book I was a little hesitant. While I really enjoyed the book I had read from him The Next Thing I knew, I didn’t Love it. However as with anything John Corwin writes I knew it would be funny. So even if you read The next Thing I knew and didn’t love it… Do. Not. Pass. This. One. Up! With 17 ratings on goodreads and a 4.94 rating you know it is great!

Justin is a lovable teenager who has no idea what is “wrong” with him but knows things are changing. He considers himself a loser and after an episode with drinking way to much beer he causes himself to become a social pariah. The only people willing to be his friends is the goth crew. But will soon find out why this is a good thing (don’t want to spoil anything!). To make matters worse his mom leaves and offers no other reason other than “his father and her have decided to go their different ways and she has to right a mistake she never should have made”. His father deals with this by drinking himself into oblivion so yeah no help there!

After deciding his life choices have led him to become an overweight teen with no self respect and in his eyes a total loser he decides to take responsibility and start working on himself by working out, cutting his elf-do, and eating healthy. He had and “elf-do” because that is what he is while playing “Kings and Castles”.

Things start getting weird as his body really starts changing after an attack from a Stacy some strange supernatural girl in the gym parking lots, he thinks maybe a vampire? I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll stop there.

Sweet Blood of Mine is hysterical, John Corwin will make pee yourself laughing. His writing is superb, this is one series you do not want to miss.

A couple of my favorite quotes from SBoM is …

“My eyelids felt like had tiny but chubby sleep faeries hanging on the lashes and pulling them closed”

“Nothing could make me pull away meat-market love goddess. My sexy little filet mignon”

“Tight dump on three” he said… “I have to drop a deuce on the count of three?”
