Summary

The lines between illusion and reality blur as a dark romance brews between two unlikely soul mates....

Stas isn't your average human. She can bend others to her will, a psychic talent she's kept hidden since the brutal murder of her parents.

Issac isn't human at all. He's an immortal, masquerading as one of New York City's most eligible bachelors while secretly seeking revenge against a former ally.

A fateful meeting ends in a seductive proposition. As their lives intertwine, secrets are exposed, and passion ignites. It's a bond built to last a lifetime, if they're willing to risk everything to protect it.

"I'm curious. How old were you when you realized you could bend others to your will?"

She forced herself to reply. "What?" 

"Oh come now, Astasiya, feigning ignorance doesn't suit you. Order me to do something instead. I dare you." 

A violent tremor shook her, rendering her speechless. For years, she had kept a lid on her abilities, playing it off whenever the occasional demand slipped. It was easy to laugh off coincidences with normal people, but there was nothing normal about this man. He would see right through any charade she threw up, as was evident by his blatant dare. 

"I thought it might be a coincidence with the hysterical woman." He pushed off the wall, his steps casual as he sauntered towards her. "Persuasion is a very rare gift, after all." He stopped just in front of her to tuck a stray blonde strand behind her ear. "But that reporter was all you."

She forced herself to swallow, mouth dry. "How long have you been watching me?"

"Long enough." His intimate gaze stroked over her, touching on all the places that could make a woman squirm. "It's customary for one in my position to kill you on sight. Fortunately for you, darling, I'm not an admirer of our archaic laws."

Author's Note: This is an audiobook in a series, which means there will be overarching themes and questions left unanswered that set up the next book. Each hero and heroine couple, however, will always have a "happy for now" or a "happily ever after" ending.

Captivating Listen!

Blood Laws by Lexi C. Foss first attracted me due to its narrators, then the blurb. The story was very captivating and has incredible imagery. I was pulled in immediately to this paranormal listen. Sarah Puckett and Joel Froomkin both knocked this listen out of the park. Both are so talented, and really bring the characters to life. Stas and Isaac are compelling and intriguing characters. The author did a great job with the unexpected twists. Thank you Audiobook Obsession for this great listen! I definitely will listen to the next book by this author.

Fantastic

I read the blurb and it sounded really good so my expectations on going in were pretty high. I’m glad to say that this book was even better than I hoped for. There was some really good twists and turns many of which I couldn’t have predicted.

Definitely a 5 star book can’t wait to listen to more

Great book, I wanted more!

After listening to this book I just wanted more, this is the start of an amazing, addictive series! The characters are absolutely charming and believable, the world building fantastic, creating a dark fantasy world just below the surface that invites you in to take a peek. I adored Stasia & Isaac's story, so forbidden and romantic, I was hooked from the start, I have so many questions I want answered - so I desperately want book 2 to find out what's next. The narration was superb, but Joel's english accent needs work, it didn't spoil my enjoyment though.

Captivating storyline

The book and storyline I was Captivated throughout, however Joel as narrator for Isaac just doesn’t work for me. As a fellow Brit I found the accent awful, it’s not powerful enough for Isaac and is far too much the stereotypical British accent. Shame because Sarah is great as Stas, and the story is fantastic

This is my first introduction to Lexi C Foss and I’m absolutely loving it.

I’m thoroughly intrigued by this world, where immortals live amongst humans.

Stas and Issac’s story sets the ground rules for what’s looking to be a very interesting series.

Stas’s world is thrown into turmoil when her best friend is found murdered, the circumstances in which she find him is most disturbing, also the fact the she isn’t alone.

Issac knows there’s something very different about Stas, now he’s prepared to use her to his advantage. However things don’t go according to plan

This one is full of information and history regarding the immortals and their powers.

I very much enjoyed this read, was captivated throughout, absorbing all the details, you don’t always know which way Stas is going to go, she’s very conflicted throughout with what she’s learning about this new world she’s discovering, and is now very much a part of.

Looking forward to reading the rest.

An Exciting well scripted paranormal romance.

I thoroughly enjoy a well written paranormal romance, but as I read so many I have high expectations. Blood Laws met my expectations and I really enjoyed the audiobook version of this PNR. The story has real grit and a great suspense filled paranormal plot along with the romantic tension that is woven throughout.

The narration, by Sarah Puckett and Joel Froomkin was a great compliment to the story. Both narrators are hugely talented and really brought the story and characterisation to life.

🎧 Review for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Great start to this new series. The characters have so much depth, interesting dichotomy between them they are fascinating, complex and I got completely lost and absorbed into this pn world.
Sarah & Joel did a fantastic job narrating.

Enjoyable....but

I really really wanted to love this book as I thought it had great potential and in part I did however I found the Heroine a tad annoying with her stupidity in some places! And that’s what spoilt the book over all. The narrators were good but again something very annoying and bland with SP’s voice. Saying all that I will listen to a sample of book 2 and make a decision to peruse the story.

This Story Helped my Relationship -- Seriously!

A stimulating supernatural relationship, Blood Laws turned out to be the book I've always wanted, but never knew I needed.
Do you want to read about mystery? Check. Romance? Check. Supernatural beings and the subplots within otherworldly races? Check and Check. Blood Laws was obviously all about the steamy relationship building between Astasiya and Isaac, but that wasn't ALL it was about, which pleased me greatly. This take had me on my feet the whole time, cogs turning in my mind, trying to figure out the age old "whodunnit" and other questions that pop up throughout the story. I was drawn in from chapter one, and my attention was thoroughly retained throughout the rest of the way. So much, that I'm itching to start the sequels! Definitely a book that leaves you wanting more in the best way possible.
The performances provided by Puckett and Fromkin were absolutely amazing. It was a nice change of pace to switch between Astasiya's and Isaac's views every other chapter or so. I really enjoyed listening to Fromkin's accents in his performance. Puckett's accents weren't as polished as her colleague, but she brought her own charm to the deeper toned characters that I respect and admire. Also can I just say how amusing it is to hear Fromkin voice Lizzy? it's so -- bubbly.
How the story was capable of doing as the title describes, well. The more intimate scenes are written just as such. VERY intimate. Enjoyable. Enough to make someone want to enjoy that very same intimacy with their own partner. Even if it's something as simple as kissing! I never knew there were so many words to describe the action. Truly a feat only possible by the most passionate of authors!
Thank you for this lovely read.

not for me

Let me start by saying that many of you will like this book if you're on an smutty urban fantasy binge. For me? I wanted plot, and the story just wasn't giving me that. I DNFed at about 30%. my
i just need more than eye fucking and sexy thoughts about the love interest. BUT if that's for you, power to you and in which case, I highly recommend this book.

The other reason I DNF'ed was the female narrator. The reader just kept oozing sex appeal into every word and I was just internally "can you please speak normally when you're talking about mundane things? That doesn't need to be said all sexy like. "

Mmmm! 😍

Um...1st of all...Wow!! This book was addicting! And 2nd, where can I find my own Issac? 😍 I loved the story! I did feel like it was a bit rushed here and there, but not too bad! Didn’t hinder my reading in any way, shape, or form! I loved all of the characters, except for a certain professor.. And I also loved some of the relationships between a few of the characters! Like Stas and Lizzy, Issac and Stas (obviously!), and the bro bond between our favorite Elders and Issac! Their back and forth banter had me laughing quite a bit! Loved the romance between Stas and Isaac as well! Super steamy! Can’t wait to learn more about the angels and vampires of this world! 😁 And to see this world from some other characters POVs! Overall, great listen!

Intriguing story!💜

This was a good start to this series. It really grabbed me right from the beginning, somewhere along the way there was so much going on that it was a little confusing to me but then it started to get very exciting again. I’m excited to start book 2 in this series.
So many great characters.
The narration by Joel Froomkin & Sarah Puckett was absolutely amazing.
This is book 1 in a continuing story.
I recommend this book!

Wonderful Story with Great Narration!

When I started this it was confusing learning who is related to who and how and the terms for all the classifications of people or demons/angels in this new world. But as the book went on I wanted to know just as Stas did what he wanted her for and what is this world he lives in. Now I don't want the book to end. I can not wait to see what happens next. Stas is running the whole gambit of emotions in this book. There are so many action, wonder and what?...... moments in Blood Vows. It just blew my brain. Isaac is such an enigma. He doesn't put all his cards in the table so it's hard to figure him out. I love that he calls everyone by their full name and yet Stas called him "demon". His friends are a little creepy but seem trustworthy…..to him. There is a large cast in Blood Vows when including both their friends and family. I am still trying to figure out Luc. I will probably reread this since now I have the world and terms down I can soak more of the other stuff in. Oh and the chemistry between Stas and Issac is electric! I would say off the charts! Great book and I can't wait to read the next one!

Unexpected, but captivating

This book was not what I was expecting. It was captivating and kept me interested. The only downside was the cliffhanger at the end. Over 12 hours of narration and you still don’t have a final outcome of the story, though you do have a HFN ending of the MCs. The narration from both narrators is fantastic.

Trust is sexy

To find out who she is, Stas agrees to date billionaire Isaac Wakefield. Now the information she learns puts her life in danger and makes their growing love problematic. This book had both of us in raptures and dying for more. There is nothing sexier than trusting your partner completely and having them trust you. This book is great and the sex is super hot!
