Blood Trade (Jane Yellowrock #6) by Faith Hunter

Blood Trade (Jane Yellowrock #6) by Faith Hunter
This is an adult urban fantasy novel (Rated R)
(Three Disappointed Hearts)
Book Summary
Jane Yellowrock is a shape-shifting skinwalker who’s always up for a fight—even if it means putting her life on the line...

The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires—those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted—are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets.

But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill—even for a pro like Jane. Now, her simple job has turned into a fight to stay alive…and to protect the desperately ill child left in her care.
My Review 

This series has taken a turn for the worst. This installment wasn’t as compelling as previous installment to make up for the lack of romance or rather how the author is bumbling through the romance. Here at the beginning I thought the author had done a good job of having a balance of romance and kick ass events. That’s no longer so. I cringe every time the romance happens.
So at the end, Jane goes out of the way to talk to Molly’s husband, but she avoids Bruiser and Ricky-bo. Come on. I wish she’d stop having feelings for both. I’m annoyed to no end.
I was also surprised at the number of plot holes for a book that’s traditionally published. At this point I begin to wonder if I can continue with the series.
And I will say since I most likely won’t be doing a blog post about the next book, I did begin to read it. I had to DNF it. It got to a point that was unnecessary and annoying. I felt like she had to make Rick a bad guy. Why the hell did she make Jane pick him in the first place? I wasn’t on TEAM Rick to begin with. Now that she made me like him, she makes him out to be a bastard. Just like in Kim Harrison’s book, I stopped just shy of that point. I didn’t want those memories.
Overall, this series is a big disappointment. Thank god Patricia Briggs’s Mercy Thompson series installment comes out today (day of blog post). I need a good series to read.
Audio Review
Khristine Hvam continues to do an excellent job with the narration.
Again, none of the love interests are worth my time. I won’t forgive Bruiser and based on the next book I won’t forgive Rick. And she better not even try to get Leo and Jane together. I’ll have to write a fan fiction where Jean Claude and Anita come and beat the hell out of Jane and Leo.
My book boyfriend is Eli.
