Vampires have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shapeshift and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even the strikingly beautiful and outrageously wealthy Blue Bloods, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz offers readers a new story about the love lives of their favorite vamps - the passion and heartache, the hope and devastation, the lust and longing. Combined with all the glitz, glamour, and mystery fans have come to expect, this is sure to be another huge hit in the Blue Bloods series.

I enjoyed this novella, but I must admit the speed in which the story was progressing was a little of kilter to me. I felt the story was a little rushed, and I would have loved for certain aspects of it to be delved into a little more, especially in the case of Oliver.
I did love the mini stories inside the novella as a whole, especially the story of Allegra Van Alen. I thought that was freaking awesome. I could easily get lost in a lot of the spin off stories of each character in the Blue Blood Series. Which of course only delights me even more, as to me it is a sign of good character development.
I would certainly recommend Bloody Valentine for the fans of the series or the readers who didn’t like it as much as they thought, but still enjoyed the plot of Allegra, Skylar and Jack and Oliver. Either way, it is a fast and enjoyable read. Not the best novel I have read, but certainly worth the read.
