    I loved the first book in this series but was terribly disappointed in this All of the growth and maturity Scarlett gained in the last book up and disappeared in a flash about halfway through She has the shittiest taste in men Does she have something against mature responsible men Why does she keep going for these douchebags when it s clear it ll never work in the long run This took place in Las Vegas It had a different vibe since none of the regular side characters were around frequently Frankl [...]

    I started this series at book 3, Shadow Hunt as an ARC review requested by the publisher After finishing Shadow Hunt I instantly went back and purchased book 1, Midnight Curse, and book 2, Blood Gamble because I knew Olson s writing is something that would be added to must read shelf The Disrupted Magic series did NOT disappoint Blood Gamble continues Scarlett s story but is told from both Scarlett s and Jesse s perspectives, although mostly Scarlett s I do know what happens next because, like I [...]

    Another instalment in the chaotic life that Scarlet lives Scarlet may be human but she s also a powerful null meaning that her life is anything but ordinary Still she s somehow accepted who and what she is and has even trained hard to protect herself and those she cares for and that is unfortunately her weak spot Scarlet is adamant that she s not going to Las Vegas no matter what Dashiel decrees but who said vampires play fair Dashiel might not be warm and fluffy but as the cardinal vampire of L [...]

    More reviews at TheBibliophageLike Midnight Curse, Melissa F Olson s Blood Gamble is a popcorn book It s fun in a paranormal sort of way Our heroine, Scarlett Bernard, is a flawed but lovable character And the action has good pacing and innovative twists.But you knew there was a but coming next, right It s still just a 3 star read for me But to me, three stars is a decent if not wildly memorable book I have no complaints about that.In Blood Gamble, Scarlett goes to Vegas to check out a new show, [...]

    3.5 starsWhen Dashiell, the vampire cardinal of Los Angeles hears about vampires having blatant show off stage show in Las Vegas, he convinces Scarlett Bernard to do a little spying Then Scarlett learns that vampires seem to be missing after attending the show and there might be hunters in Las Vegas killing themHonestly, I wasn t a lot happy with Scarlett in this book which is a bit disappointing because the previous one, Midnight Curse, rocked my socks off I felt that she was acting slightly br [...]

    Source NetGalley Genre Urban Fantasy Rating 4.0 Full Review Pending As this is actually the FIFTH installment in Scarlett s series, things really, really take a holy shite turn once you reach the last page As the author states, she has seen this particular issue coming since the first book in the series One could say that Olson jumps the shark on the ending Especially after her character explicitly said one thing, and that thing apparently is BULLSHARK I enjoyed this story nonetheless I do care [...]

    In which we are confirmed in the belief that Scarlett will never get to have the nice things For values of things a romantic relationship Also in which an author s note added even emotional punch to a twist in the tail that I never saw coming, and in fact would doubt anyone could have foreseen.And while I didn t love this for the first point , I m also wondering after the note if in some barely imaginable future, Scarlett s life will contain a solid, permanent relationship Because it is absolut [...]

    I freaking love these books Olson is not kind to her characters, they go through some sh t, but they grow for it I enjoy all the characters, the story races along, and I don t have to set it down half way through I really enjoy the whole thing So, this is one series I want to read as soon as the book comes out If you like paranormal urban fantasy, these are a great addition to the genre.Anyway, don t start with this one, read them all in orderd the two series intertwine a tiny bit, especially no [...]

    Scarlet Bernard travels to Las Vegas to investigate a vampire couple who are getting close to letting the cat out of the bag about vampires While there she discovers that vampires have been going missing I never quite got Scarlet Bernard and the LA vampires I didn t connect with the characters and the stories left me feeling unsatisfied I think I walked away from the series after book 2 But I ve been giving it another try with the Disrupted Magic series which also features Scarlet Bernard and fo [...]

    The Melissa Olson books are always a good time Quick reads, but highly entertaining There is plenty of action, a good bit of humor, and always an air of mystery The protagonists are compelling and well drawn Another solid book from a solid author

    Blood Gamble will make you laugh a lot , cry, and bring you to the edge of your seat with a startled gasp, at the end I loved Scarlett s Vegas adventure As always all books with snarky, female leads are my favorite books Ms Olson the reference to Dracula was a nice touch.

    Scarlett does not want to go to Las Vegas No, not even if there are two vampires putting on a show that may reveal the old world No not even if Dashiel is paying her a huge sum of money She s not going But Vampires don t take no for an answer and with Dashiel manipulating her sister in law into going she has to try and protect them But there she encounters something far deadly than Dashiel expected she could come home, but who but Scarlett will stop the death toll rising I would describe the wo [...]

    It was almost a 4 star but there were several stupid tropes that undermined the story over all, and I really didn t like the end So, 3 stars Good but not great.

    Loved it I loved this book I loved the ending When she introduced Jamison I wondered if that would be the outcome As a POC I m glad that color is being added to the story I m glad I waited to read this series because I think the wait would ve been unbearable had I read it earlier Can t wait until February 13th I just have one theory I want proven and I ll be a totally happy reader.

    GAAAAAHHHHHH The cliffhanger on the last page is so killer I NEED the next book right away It s just so crazy Related sidenote The Author s Note after the end actually mentioned the cliffhanger, and how she knew people would either love or hate it I personally love it, and totally see how it fits with the series Doesn t mean I m totally happy about it, or that I have to wait to read what happens next though Hint, hint, next book now please.It s no secret that I love this overall series, yes this [...]

    10 stars Wow Wish I could give this ten stars Wish this books was twice as long as it was, just because I didn t want it to end So exciting Hard to believe I became so trapped in this story that I began reading at lunch, listen to the audible version all afternoon at work, then listened while driving home and immediately began reading and listening once home until the last sentence It is a wonderful story that s very well written You gotta listen too The narration is excellent It brings the stor [...]

    Blood Gamble is the second book in the Disrupted Magic series by Melissa F Olson, which is an offshoot of the Scarlett Bernard series I highly recommend reading all of the two series in order, but to be honest I love the author so I recommend reading all of her books period If there is one city that Scarlett Bernard hates, it s Las Vegas But when the cardinal vampire of Los Angeles convinces her to go investigate a new vampire themed stage show, Scarlett quickly finds herself shoulder deep in se [...]

    Blood Gamble continues the walking disaster that is Scarlet Bernard s life as a Null a human who cancels out the magic of supernaturals in her presence, vampires and werewolves become human and witches spell bounce off her.This book takes Scarlet out of LA, where she is supported by people she trusts, and into Las Vegas, a city she has a bad history with and where she has to fall back on her own resources She is made vulnerable by the fact that her cover story for being in Las Vegas is to atten [...]

    I m pretty much done with this series I ve never understood the choices Scarlett makes in her love life in the last series, she never even seemed to particularly like Eli beyond basic friendship and sometimes not even that , while the build with Jesse was excellent, but yet she ended up with Eli I was so excited that she and Eli were over in this new series, hoping that finally the way would be paved for her and Jesse But this Jameson thing came completely out of nowhere, and I strongly disliked [...]

    Just wow I think the whole thing with Jameson just sad It was a revelation to see what another null went through Especially if you compare Scarlet s life with Charlie s life, and then Jameson s life Makes a person wonder how the other few nulls in the world have been treated Once again I think the author s jab at writing romance sexual emotions is a bit far fetched or needs work That or I m just old and don t get how kids are these days.I certainly wasn t expecting what all happened at the end [...]
