Series: Bloom Daniels Series #1
Genre: Paranormal Romance

Summary from Goodreads:

Bloom was abandoned by her mother at birth, but thanks to her dad she never once felt unloved. When he is killed in a car wreck, leaving her without any close family, she spends a year mourning him. She feels as if her heart has been cut out of her chest and nothing is left but an empty hole that she doesn’t think will ever heal. Then one night after work she finds a wounded dog in the woods behind her house and takes him in, not realizing he’s more than just some stray dog but a wolf shifter, who happens to be her mate.

Pike is getting over the loss of his father by running full force away from his responsibilities. He’s getting ready to go back to face his new position as the Alpha of his pack when he catches the scent that can only belong to his mate.

When Bloom finds out she may not be the normal human she always thought herself to be, she’s forced to search out the woman who abandoned her at birth.

I would like to thank Michelle Turner and Juniper Grove Book Solutions for allowing me to be apart of this tour! I had the pleasure of reviewing Reviving Bloom and have to say right now I rather enjoyed it!

Bloom is trying to get by, day by day, as the loss of her father still weighs heavy on her heart, but she has her close friend Bonnie, Bonnie’s father and her father’s friend, the closest person she has to family, Billy. One day however, she encounters an injured wolf and for the first time it is like something has changed in Bloom…

More like awaken something within her, something she didn’t know was there….

Pike just wanted to get away for a while, he had defeated his father in a challenge and has now become the Alpha of his pack, it was all too much to take, while running he comes across a scent, a scent that he knows will lead him to his mate, while staying close he gets his paw stuck in a trap and is released by Bloom. He soon realizes that Bloom isn’t just any normal girl, but not wanting to alarm her he treads carefully on how he will go about revealing himself to her.

But danger lurks close by and is after Bloom, HIS Bloom, and Pike is determined to keep her safe.

I rather liked the story, right now we are seeing a lot of vampires and werewolves being written about but thankfully this was something not overdone; that is what made the story enjoyable. Though the plot was intriguing, I found myself wanting a bit more build up in some of the characters, I just felt like there was something missing to give each character that extra “humph” but regardless that didn’t keep me from reading through the book in a matter of hours.

I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book (there is a next book right? question to Michelle Turner) because if there isn’t I think I would be left with too many questions! Especially the ending, which I wont say anything but it is rather amusing how Bloom and Pike both try to get the two together…(oooooo now you are probably wondering “Two? Two who?”) It is all part of my evil plan to lure you to pick a copy up of this book!
