    Liked the Strong-Willed Heroine

    The Blood Code by Misty Evans can best be described as a nail-biting, spine-tingling, edge of your seat thriller. The book is just chilling. I just couldn’t fathom how Ivanov would be stopped or how Anya would get out of the dreadful situation of being held captive before it was too late. Anya is so feisty and at times it puts her in further danger. Oh and President Ivanov is so creepy, I just cringe when I think about his character. He is so unstable that I couldn’t predict what he would do next. I liked Anya’s strong will. She added excitement to the story. She was a relentless character that wouldn’t let anything stop her and had no mercy on her enemies. The Blood Code was well-written and just had one of the most nerve-wracking endings. If you love suspense novels with a strong heroine, I would definitely recommend this novel. Rating 4.5/5 I received an e-arc of The Blood Code by Misty Evans from the publisher for an unbiased review.

    I confess, I went through a stage of reading quite a lot of roma

    I confess, I went through a stage of reading quite a lot of romance, but it’s been a while since I last sank my teeth into a good one. 
    I was not disappointed by my return to the genre. The Blood Code kept me engaged through all 340 pages. There is believable tension and attraction between Ryan and Anya, and I appreciated that Anya was as brilliant and courageous as Ryan (go girl power!). There was an element of Anya cast as the “damsel in distress,” but Misty Evans does a nice job of showing how Anya can more than hold her own in difficult situations.
    When Ryan and Anya finally hook up (come on, this isn’t a real spoiler--it’s a Romance, for crying out loud!), the love scene is spicy and titillating, without overwhelming or distracting from the rest of the plot. Misty Evans is clearly comfortable in this genre.
    I felt the book dragged a bit around the middle, where I started to feel a little claustrophobic being stuck in the Kremlin along with the key characters. I realize that’s part of the point--they’re feeling stuck, too--but I began to feel eager for more action other than the tension between Ryan and Anya and President Ivanov, a nutjob Hitleresque leader with visions of world domination. But even this criticism I had to think about after I had finished reading the book.
    I haven’t read the other books in this series, but I got a kick out of learning more about U.S. and Russian intelligence agencies and Russian architecture, so I’ll likely try some of the others.
    Overall, this is a very satisfying, well-paced romance, and I recommend it to anyone who dreams of meeting a man---at least in books--who likes his martinis “shaken, not stirred.”

    The Blood Code is based around Anya Romanov Radzoya's lineage. She is one of three remaining Russian princesses.
    However, Anya is anything but your typical princess. She prefers jeans to ball gowns and sweaters to tiaras. Anya is an incredibly
    spunky character. She's very set in her ways and doesn't let anyone tell her what to do. 

    Anya's grandmother is taken prisoner by the Russian President Ivanov. Ivanov demands Anyas presence in Russia at the nuclear
     arms summit. You soon learn that Ivanov has insane ideas of returning Russia to its former "glory" by using his and Anya's "pure"
     bloodlines. Ivanov is the perfect bad guy. He's insanely creepy and gives you the willys just imagining him. 

    Enter the hero of the story, Ryan Smith. After meeting Anya while she's running from the police, Ryan agrees to help Anya find evidence
    against Ivanov. Under the guise of a pencil pusher for the President of the US, Ryan infiltrates the nuclear arms summit and lends his
    expertise to Anya's predicament. Ryan is a strong character. He and Anya butt heads a lot.

    Having read the previous books in this series, Misty Evans continues to deliver the fun, fast action and highly-entertaining I have come
    to expect from her books. Reading Ryan's story was great fun and I already know whose stories I would like to read next. 

    In return for an honest review I received an ARC from the publisher.

    Review: Blood code

    The Blood Code by Misty Evans

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    I love it!
    Secret CIA spies and Russian princesses!?!
    Feisty and capable Russian Princess!
    I read this book before I realized it was fourth in a series. I don't think it took anything away from this story not having read the first three. I believe they were each about different characters within a central group of people.

    Anya is a Russian Princess with a problem and Ryan Smith is the CIA operative she finds to help her rescue her kidnapped Grandmother.

    I enjoyed the fact that she was not completely helpless, that she had self-defense skills, and super-secret-spy skills even though she is a scientist by trade. Ryan also liked these traits very much.

    A great story that made me miss one of my favorite TV shows (ALIAS) just a little less. Not so heavy on the detailed steamy scenes, but still gives good butterflies.
