Bargains and Betrayals- Shannon DelanyI’m going to let you in on a little secret. I love the 13 to Life series, but at the end of Secrets and Shadows, I balled my tiny ineffectual fists, threw the book to the ground, and stomped my feet like two year old in the midst of a tantrum. Why, you ask? Well, because I found the ending to be only the most infuriating ending ever! Here’s the good news and the secret, the ending of Secrets and Shadows is worth it because it sets up Bargains and Betraya [...]

These books are puzzling to me. I liked 13 to Life, despite its many problems (particularly the problem of Jessie throwing Pietr at Sarah to make Sarah happyI mean, get real). Regardless, I was able to overcome and enjoy. It was a sweet story, I (for the most part) liked tomboy Jessie, and Pietr's unabashed honesty and puppy-like loyalty was adorable. I saw trouble coming in the second book, Secrets and Shadows. The characters seemed somehow less than what they were in the first. This book broug [...]

Picking up right where Secrets & Shadows ended, Shannon Delany throws readers into a book full of action, emotionally intense scenes and a book that has an edgier, darker feel to it. Strap your seat belt on and hang on for this book's wild ride. Bargains and Betrayals was nothing I was excepting. There's a lot more at stake, a lot of twists, and along with Jessi's point of view, there's another character's pov of who helps in telling a story that is so perfectly fitting for a third book in a [...]

Bargains and Betrayals can be pretty much summed up by the main characters own words:'I know, I know. It sounds like some crazy plot cooked up by a housewife-turned-author.'The CIA lock Jessie up in a mental asylum to keep her from using her unique blood to cure the Ruskovas of their werewolf nature. Naturally, boyfriend and werewolf Pietr fight to get Jessie out.-Jessie was boring. She was dumb, self righteous, weak and overly forgiving.-Pietr held no appeal whatsoever. His mood swings and hiss [...]

I thought this was much better than the first two books, and I liked the first two. I thought the plot was tighter, better developed. It is a character driven story to be sure but this book focused on one main external conflict and had a nice arc to it. I appreciated the way the author used internal thoughts for taglines, for example the name of the speaker in italics. To my brain, it was the narrator making a mental note and flowed well for me. There were several conversations between Jess and [...]

Bargains and Betrayals was definitely an improvement on Secrets and Shadows.Jessie is locked away at Pecan Place, an institute for the mentally unstable, and she quickly learns that Pecan Place is hiding some pretty big secrets when it comes to what they are doing to their patients.Jessie matured between Secrets and Shadows and Bargains and Betrayals and although it was only minor it was definitely an improvement, yes she was still pining after Pietr but at least she has a real reason to this ti [...]

The third book in the "13 to Life" series, "Bargains and Betrayals", did not disappoint (except for the awfully small font in my paperback copy, talk about eye strain!). This entire series is so much more than I initially thought it was going to be. It is not just a "werewolf" story, it is so much more. There are several paranormal aspects/people in this story, including zombies!!! Yes-- I said ZOMBIES! I can't even tell you how delighted I was by this. There's also the mafia, scientists and a s [...]

What a ride!! Bargains and Betrayals jumps right into action where we were left hanging with Secrets and Shadows left us with this horrible cliffhanger. Jessi is send to a institution where she left isolated from Pietr and even her dad. But soon Jessi discovers that there is of course something weird going on and finally also her dad realizes that this is not the right place for her. Pietr tries to get her out, but it's too dangerous so the two lovers have to stay apart from each other. At the t [...]

Rating 3.5I was kind of on the fence on what to rate this, 3 or 4 so I guess I'll go inbetween. Bargains and Betrayals starts off right where Secrets and Shadows ended. Jess is in the intitute torn away from Pietr. Alot going on in this got a little confused about some things. But in the end I caught on. A few different plots going on in this one. Lets see we got Jess in the institute, which come to find out alot of creepy stuff going on in this place, the Rusakovas trying to free there mother, [...]

[4.5 GOLD STARS!!]This book is probably my favorite so far in the series!There were so many plot twists that I didn't see coming and the writing was flawless for the most part. Very happy with this read!!

I just want to start out by warning you this is a long review but I do not care because I have a lot to say about this wonderful little book. It’s also completely free of spoilers from previous books and this book. And it’s a long review filled with lots of love.I did not think it was possible for me to love the 13 to Life series anymore than I already did, but Bargains and Betrayals proves I can love it even more. And boy, do I love it. I have previously reviewed both 13 to Life and Secrets [...]

I received this ARC from a trade with Cindy@PrincessBookieEveryone knows my obsession with Shannon Delany's 13 to Life! Loved it from cover to finish and I have become fast addicted to the series, so when Cindy at PrincessBookie was offering this in an ARC trade I jumped like a madwoman. Or a crazed book reader!Anyway, Bargains and Betrayals was just amazing! One thing I liked was that instead of just Jessie narrating, Alexi is too! They go back and forth so we get to see what's happening with J [...]

Let me preface this review and say that while I read the first book in the series, 13 to Life, I did not read book two, Secrets and Shadows. My mistake. I felt completely lost for the first half of the book and didn’t feel caught up until the last quarter of the book. Ugh!This book was full, FULL of melodrama and he shall be called Pietr. Pietr was so intense in every scene; his every emotion was at the brink of a breakdown. He was a lot to handle. I mean, I love the thing between Pietr and Je [...]

Bargains and Betrayals was a book I was highly anticipating after Secrets and Shadows. I thought everything was set for the ultimate 3rd book, and it would all just go. It was! Bargains and Betrayals was everything I had hoped for and more. I pretty much read this one in one sitting - I didn't want to put it down. The story was absolutely addicting. Bargains and Betrayals definitely took a different turn from the prior 2 books. There are alternating perspectives - told from both Jessie and Alexi [...]

Even though this wasn't the book I like the most from the series it's still good. But some of the parts are kind of hurrying? I don't know but it's just probably me. Mhmm, and sometimes I don't get it. Confusing? Anyway, Jessica and Pietr are still strong characters. Still love them and think they are perfect couples but I don't get itThey had sex. I mean, sex. I know a lot of teenage books have those moments. But Shannon Delany made Pietr sound like he is a inappropriate pedo ass. Who thinks of [...]

Spoilers for the earlier books (somewhat).This picks up where Secrets and Shadows ended. Jessie is in the mental institution and Pietr and his siblings are trying to get their mom out of the CIA's clutches. Pietr thinks he has a way to free her (the mom) but can he and Jessie stay together after she learns about the compromises he's making? And what kind of a mental institution is she in, anyway? Scary things are happening there.This is such a fun, addictive series (more along the vein of House [...]

After waiting so long for this book, I was disappointed. I felt the story was bland and felt like it was written in a rush. Like a person trying to tell a whole story in detail in a short time. The writing was simple but missed connectivity. There was something missing in the flow of the story.What was Delany thinking? Jessie. !!!!! She cried and begged Pietr not to kill Christian and almost hated him for turning into a mafia, but then She kills someone herself. Delany seemed to be in a hurry to [...]

This started out slow, with Jessie confined at Pecan Place and Pietr thinking of ways to help his Mother and Jess escape. Surprisingly, it is told in Jessie and Alexi's POV (which I don't understand) since I was waiting for a big secret coming from Alexi. But I still enjoyed reading it. Well, it is paranormal since we have werewolves, ghosts, zombies and yep "vampirelike" qualities in this series but the thing that makes it more interesting is along with the paranormal stuff bring into the mix R [...]

I can't tell you how many times I had to put this book down and actually get my work done. Absolutely devoured it! Amazing! Can't wait till my hands are on the next book! :)

Wow, I didn't hate Jess this time around, that is a nice surprise!Kept me interested enough throughoutAm going straight onto the next.

By Shannon Delany, #3 of the 13 to Life Series. Grade BWell I’ve been reading this book for quite some days now, and now it’s over. Finally!Locked away at Pecan Place, Jessie finds her situation to be even more dangerous than she feared. While she struggles to maintain her sanity and discover answers about the group that seems less and less like any legitimate government agency, Pietr fights to keep their relationship alive. But very aware that his mother’s time is running out, Pietr makes [...]

This is the third installment of the 13 to Life series. Jessie is locked up at Pecan Place - “a place where nuts gather” aka the local asylum. This book starts out reiterating the end of Secrets and Shadows, where Jessie is taken and Pietr fights to keep that from happening. Jessie is afraid that the guards had hurt or killed Pietr and at the beginning of the book, she is trying to find that out. She learns the ins and outs of Pecan Place and how to prevent herself from getting on restrictio [...]

13 TO LIFE has been one of my favorite YA paranormal romance series since the first book. Its one of the few series I could turn to and say 'Risks! Author took risks!' because Delany does take some risks. None of her characters are what you'd consider to be stand up role models much of the time--half of the first two books Jessie is either plotting ways to keep Pietr from his girlfriend or helping to break into highly secure government facilities. The Rusakovas, despite being the right most of t [...]

Review originally posted at The Starry-Eyed Revue.Please note: minor spoilers for the previous novels may follow.The 13 to Life series is so much fun and so different from any other werewolf story I’ve ever encountered. But it’s not just about the wolves. Shannon Delaney owns this story with the inclusion of the Russian Mafia, Cold War experiments gone wrong (or right?), and renegade “CIA” operatives. Not to mention the bittersweet love story.This plot is just full of crazy. After the ev [...]

Review:  Upon picking up my ARC I didn’t immediately recall that we had left Jessie in such a tenuous place and I wasn’t quite ready to be thrown into the fray. However, Shannon Delany backtracks a little bit in the timeline to give us a chance to get up to speed. Of course, once you’re caught up, it’s impossible to put down. Ms. Delany has done something different with this book by switching viewpoints between Alexi and Jessie.  It's as if she were giving you pages out of their journ [...]

Eh, maybe 3.5 (?)I’m on the fence I liked this book much more than the last, but the plot still seems very disjointed and all over the place--almost like you’re reading 2 or 3 completely different books at the same time about the same characters. Really confusing and disorienting at times!! I found a lot of the conversations odd, too--particularly between Jess and Pietr. Pietr didn’t seem very consistent in this book and between this book and others in the series. One minute he seems to be [...]

Originally posted on At Home Between the PagesPietr and Jess are one of my favourite YA couples. I like how their relationship started out fairly normal (with the exception of the werewolf thing). What I mean is that they started more as friends, and then took it further, before eventually falling in love. And in Bargains and Betrayals, their relationship is tested more than ever. This time it’s not just a friend getting in the way. It’s the CIA and the Mafia. And time itself.This book picks [...]

Ever since Shannon Delany got published, I've been a huge fan of her. I expect a lot from her books, because the first two books were simply mind-blowing. But Bargains and Betrayals was somehow very different. I enjoyed it, sure. And I still couldn't put the book away, but yet I somehow felt very detatched from the characters. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that we're also reading the story through someone else's POV? It's highly possible, although my appreciation of that certain c [...]

MARISSA'S REVIEW:Bargains and Betrayals is book #3 in the 13 to Life series by Shannon Delany. I have been really enjoying this series - not too taxing on the brain and a nice easy and enjoyable read from from beginning to end.Jess finds herself in a greater predicament than she could imaginePecan Place - home of nutters and one particularly dastardly therapist/scientist - Dr. Jones. She is one evil woman! And just when Jess thought no-one could be worse being around Dr Jones's being around Dere [...]

Shannon Delany has been one of my favorite authors since I discovered her 13 to Life series. I mean, it's a love story that involves Russian werewolves! Come one, who wouldn't fall head over heels for that?! It's two of my favorite things put together. Needless to say, I love this series. I hopelessly waited for the release of the newest installment, Bargains and Betrayals. I knew it was going to be amazing, but I just didn't realize how much.If you've read the first two installments, you know t [...]
