Gypsy's Blood (All The Pretty Monsters, #1) by Kristy Cunning

Gypsy's Blood (All The Pretty Monsters, #1)

I'm not all that special, really. Or uncommon. I'm sure there are a lot of girls with old gypsy blood who see the dead, have killer cults hunting their family, and turn into something that gets scary when they panic. Yep. Completely unoriginal, if I do say so myself. Move along. Nothing to see here. Nope. I'm just an ordinary girl. I wish people would believe that. I've been labeled as one thing or another for most of my life: Death Girl. Crazy G...

  • Stacey is Sassy
    It wasn’t the title that pulled me in…There seem to be two things that make me look twice at a book cover, a striking (not necessarily handsome) bloke and a beautiful cape. I’m not sure what it is about them, but I would LOVE to have a hooded cape of my own. Maybe it's the historical romance reader in me because I'm still envious of the one Jane Bennet wore in Pride and Prejudice (BBC version). Now, the practicality of having a big sweeping...

    🔮 BR with my cake eating gurls at Reverse Harem Revolution #eatallthecake 🔮4.5 StarsAs you might be able to tell I thoroughly enjoyed this book I didn't even know existed three or four weeks ago. I mean, this books' name was thrown to me at random, as most thing are in the RHR lair. The place is wack. There are rooms within which are populated by LOTS of cake, swooning, books and the occasional random stranded male specimen, all randomly an...

    The Dark Side is one of my favorite series.This one is already topping it though.The world building had me scrambling a tad in the beginning and I sort of had a hell of a time separating the new characters initially. It definitely got better at about 40%.Damian, Emit, Vance and Arion are all separate individuals. I enjoyed their personalities immensely. They are all cursed. They are also sort of bad dudes. I am fairly positive that everyone in th...

    I’m uncharacteristically late to this BR with the Reverse Harem Revolution but better late than never! First Cunning gives us Four Psychos, now she gives us four monstersand they are epic!This book has been all I've heard about since Dec. So I had some pretty big expectations, but I'm happy to say. Its worth all the hype. I wont even be able to review this fully because I am itching to start into the next. yes I am glad I waited so I don't hav...

    4.5 stars!

    So I'm a bit of an idiot and I downloaded a bunch of books after taking some muscle relaxers for my back spasms and when I woke up, I found this book and many others on my kindle as a great little surprise for myself. I started reading this one and got about halfway through before I remembered "Oh! There was a reverse harem in there!" This is one of the few times where under the influence me and Amazon actually got along but I do not condone this...

    An enjoyable start to the series, just not one I felt immersed in, and the end of this book left A LOT of questions unanswered. For everything that is revealed more questions emerge.Violet is a Portocale gypsy, who has moved to live in the town where her mother was murdered, but with almost no knowledge of her heritage, and the curse suffered by the powerful monsters of the town, she's in for a bumpy and eye opening ride. A ride she shares somewh...

    4.5. I really loved this!!!The author's Four Psychos series is one of my favourite RH series' and this is an absolutely brilliant start to something I think I might end up liking more!This has, for me, what Four Psychos didn't have, and that's interesting male characters. The Four Horseman became pretty interchangeable for me eventually, which is often a problem in RH, but certainly not here. Vance, Damian, Emmitt and Arion are all very separate ...
  • MrsJoseph
    Ok. This was weird and strange and there is a TOTAL LACK OF SEX. I'm talking about not even heavy petting here. There's some kissing...and some tension.......thats totally not my thing, btw. I love tension but if a book is gonna have sexy times, I expect the sexy times......But I really dug this weird ass book. The heroine MC is...super clueless (this appears to be a trend for the author, as I'm reading another series by her right now)...and bein...
  • Ashley Barry
    Kristy Cunning writes a fantastic reverse harem. I recently finished her Dark Side series, and when I found out she had another reverse harem coming out I was over the moon. While this book ends on a cliff hanger, which I’m not normally very fond of, the next book in the series comes out early January so there’s not too long to wait.The world-building in this book was fascinating, and there were a lot of interesting twists. While the genera...
  • Jane Cousins
    To say the pnr market is saturated with RH novels is an undeniable fact. But authors who can actually deliver a story line, a layered world and multiple 3 dimensional characters who can maintain a sizzle factor...? Those authors are few and far between. Certainly making the grade is Kristy Cunning. Her worlds are a little on the dark side, but they are intriguing and like real life have funny, tender, scary and sad moments. I may not stick with t...

    Laughed out loud a few times. Anna is hilarious.

    Afreakingmazing Love love love...I don’t like cliffhangers but I love this one! Can’t wait for the next one...I feel a book hangover coming soon.
  • Arushi
    Gypsy's Blood is the first book in a new series by Kristy Cunning (a reverse-harem pseudonym for C.M. Owens). It definitely makes for a great and extremely intriguing start. You go through the book (thankfully not as lost as the main female lead) wondering just what is happening, but in a really good way. Each revelation leaves you wanting more. The men share a 1000-year history with each other. Violet is 25. She and us have a learning curve. Sin...

    UPDATEI cannot overstate how much this book made me laugh. Seriously, almost all of my notes are just parts that made me laugh. This book isn’t perfect—some characters were a bit lacking and some plot elements came out of nowhere—but I was too entertained to care.The MC, Violet, is definitely overshadowed by her best friend, the stalker ghost Anna. I thought it was an odd move because the author repeatedly mentions via Anna that Anna is muc...

    I struggled a lot with this book. I was so confused for about 90% of it. And Violet was kind of an idiot. She trusted too easily. If it weren't for Anna, I probably would have put this book down. Anna was hilarious and I love her. But I kind of hated everything else about this book.Okay but here's the thing, I HATED the first book of Kristy's other series Four Psychos. Like I hated it. But I kept reading because the MC was funny and I ended up ab...

    What happens when a seemingly fragile, innocent gypsy girl opens shop in a quaint town where she runs into ... monsters?Sounds like a fairy tale, and in a way, this is a dark sexy one with hot alpha male monsters who are strangely drawn to the gypsy because of her sweet smelling Portocale blood and ... oranges!The longish story has many secrets that never quite unravel and central to the plot is figuring out who or what exactly is the real monste...
  • Namera [The Literary Invertebrate]
    This was an interesting one, and I actually put off reading it for ages because I loved the Dark Side series so much, I was scared I'd be let down. Then I tore through this book in a morning. The heroine I liked a bit more than Paca, I think. I loved Ace the hero. Unfortunately I'm still on the fence about the other three heroes - I preferred the personalities of the guys in Four Psychos a lot more, even though people complained that they blurred...
  • Silvia Andrito
    Wow, what an exciting start to a new series. Absolutely loved this book. The premise is new, the world building is great. The characters are intriguing and have so much depth. The heroine is new to this world but can give as good as she gets. The pretty monsters are so well developed and very likable. Her sidekick ghost is hilarious. Can’t wait for the next installment! Be warned it does end in a cliffhanger but next book will be out in 3 weeks...

    Violet is a Portocale gypsy, a rare one with old blood and gypsy pride. She's lived her life on the move since a cult dedicated to the Forsaken has been trying to kill her as a sacrifice since she turned 13. Her mother was recently killed and left her a house and lucrative business but no warning that she will be surrounded by monsters. Once there Violet also realizes that her mother has not given her vital information on being a gypsy or told he...
  • Camila Rodriguez
    Kristy has a way of making a plot so unequivocally complex (at least to my wandering mind) that the whole plot kinda just zooms over my head unapologetically while it rains llamas.Let’s be real: did anyone REALLY understand what the flying fuck was going on in Four Psychos? Sort of.My whole focus on that book was KAI KAI KAI, and Jude.And now Kristy bestowes upon us another RH that JUST FUCKING SLAYSSo with this book:THE HUMOR.I don’t think I...
  • Annette Dahl
    This book was recommended to me by a Goodreads friend. I'm so happy she included me in her recommendations because I loved the story. It was a story that had me captivated, and every time real life pulled me away from it I was upset. The Secondary characters were just as good as the main characters. Anna was my favorite character of this tale. She was a crazy ghost with outlandish statements that made me laugh.I read the story wishing it was a bu...
  • MichelleG
    Fantastic start to the seriesThis book is the story of a girl who moves to a small mysterious town upon the death of her mother. She soon learns that first appears to be a seemingly innocent and dare I say boring town, is actually anything but and it plunges into situations and predicaments that she never could have imagined... or that of her new sexy monster friends.The story feels like it’s only just beginning so I will be eagerly looking for...
  • Puna
    This was not a series that I saw coming. I love Kristy Cunning aka CM Owens but I didn't even know this was one of her works till it popped up on my Amazon KU read lists. I was so excited! She did not disappoint! I always read her books in one day or in a day and a half. Sadly, never very productive when it comes to these books that I can't put down. I should've waited for the whole series to be published since she loves cliffhangers! There is on...
  • Janee
    Round and roundI love this author no matter who she writes under. If course this another mind f**k of a story. Violet knows what she is, but that all she knows of her kind history. That's the frustrating part this story. The monsters talk in circles. In which also makes the story more fascinating. This is going to one those series that will be impatient about getting!!! And stay frustrated until it does.
  • Tina J
    A bit confusing in parts but a good start. I’m hoping it doesn’t lose my interest like the dark side series because it’s a good first book. The mystery got a bit tedious in places but now the story has moved on I’m sure the pace will pick up. My favourite thing was the ghost, she made this book and kept me reading; She’s hilarious! I’m praying Violet finds a way to keep her around.
  • Jordan
    Gypsy's Blood is an amazingly unique and intriguing fantasy reverse harem story! Kristy Cunning's Dark Side series was fantastic so I was very excited for this book and wow I was not disappointed. Gypsy's Blood introduces us to a new world, one with gypsies, magic, and other paranormal creatures. I've never read a book quite like this one before and I loved the representations of gypsies and their role in the world here. Violet is an awesome char...
  • Jessica
    Shes done it againThis author is amazing. I dont know how she always manages it but her books are always filled with heat, humor and intrigue. Her books are like that really nice bottle of wine you put aside for a very special (or very bad) day. They're like your favorite dessert you only let yourself have on a special occasion and when you do you slowly savor every single bite. In short, shes amazing and this book did not disappoint in the least...
