The Burning Shadow (Origin Series #2) by Jennifer L Armentrout

When Evelyn Dasher crossed paths with Luc, she was thrown headfirst into the world of the Lux—only to discover that she was already far more involved in their world than she ever suspected.

Because the Luxen aren’t the only ones with a hidden past. There’s a gap in Evie’s memory, lost months of her life and a lingering sense that something happened, something she can’t remember and nobody is willing to tell her. She needs to find out the truth about who she is—and who she was. But every answer she finds only brings up more questions.

Her search for the truth brings her ever closer to Luc, the Origin at the center of it all. He’s powerful, arrogant, inhumanly beautiful, extremely dangerous…and possibly in love with her. But even as Evie falls for him, she can’t help but wonder if his attraction is to her, or to the memory of a girl who no longer exists.

And all the while, a new threat looms: reports of a flu-like, fatal virus that the government insists is being spread by Luxen. A horrifying illness that changes whoever it touches, spreading panic across a country already at its breaking point.

I’ve been waiting for the release of this book for MONTHS! It’s a little known fact that JLA is my favorite author. She will always be my #1.

This book was my everything! I love when JLA writes paranormal romance. She’s had me hooked since Obsidian. I’ve been a Daemon Black fan girl ever since.

via GIPHY

. Super excited that this book picks up right where The Darkest Star (Origin #1) left off. Literally, right where the last book left off.

I love Luc so very much! He’s super powerful, down right handsome, and super dangerous. His t-shirt choices and cheesy pick up lines are hilarious! Don’t let that fool you. He is a seriously dangerous Origin who will stop at nothing to protect Evie. He has been keeping a close watch on her for years. Luc himself has grown up so much since the Lux series….SIGH…he’s become so dreamy…

Evie has been dealt a shit hand in life. Poor thing has been through hell and back. She is fighting to figure out who she really is. So many bad things have happened to her in her past, now in her present things are getting cray-cray. There is a new “big bad” in town and Evie isn’t sure how she can help. She helps to uncover the new baddie and now they must work together to take them down.

There is so much ground covered in this book. Pay attention to all of the little details. Jen is really good at sliding them into the story. From the beginning to the ending I was hooked. The romance, danger, memories and fight scenes. It’s everything I love in a good paranormal YA! Please make sure that if you’re going to read this one that you have read the Lux series and The Darkest Star before continuing. I hope you love this book as much me!

Aflame (Fall Away #4) by Penelope Douglas

The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg…

Everyone wants to be me.

Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care. Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name.

I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do.

They all talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate?

But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here.

Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.

via GIPHY

The Fall Away series is like warm chocolate chip cookies, I just cannot get enough! When Jaxson and Juliet’s (K.C.) story ended I NEEDED to know more about Tate and Jared. Pen left their story wide open for another book. You better believe I “one-clicked” the hell out of it!

Let me start by saying, I LOVE when Pen puts songs in her book. It makes it so much easier for me to picture the scene. Also, she has amazing taste in music, so there’s that! When she brings us onto the scene with a music intro, it’s seriously my EVERYTHING! Tate peeling out listening to “Click, Click, Boom” by Saliva…all the goosebumps!

Now, onto the good stuff…

I was super impressed that Tate stood her ground when it came to Jared. The flashback two years prior nearly broke my wholesome little heart. Ugh, these two are perfect for each other. However, I can completely understand Jared’s need to spread his wings a little bit. If I would have been in Tate’s shoes, I would have been completely and utterly deviated. Even reading the book was giving me super anxiety. Like hurry up and love each other again.

Tate was focusing on school and living her life at the Loop. She was grounded and focused. Her life was easy, but she still felt like she was missing a piece of herself. She kept comparing every relationship to her and Jared’s. I wanted to like Ben, but I was always rooting for Jared. Even when he was being a jerkface.

Jared has grown up so much. He’s a badass motorcycle racer. He’s building a name and a life for himself. What he doesn’t have is Tate. Uggh, I wanted to push them into a room together and make them fall back in love. When they were at the Loop, my pulse was racing when Tate was on the back of his motorcycle. So many times this book made my heartbeat speed up.

This book is absolute FIRE! I keep using shouty capitals because, y’all, it’s that MF good! The romance and the “sexy” scenes are on point. Pen really knows how to write a scene that will make you burn. Straight up BURN!

Do I recommend this book? HELL YEAH! Do I recommend this series? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ABSOLUTELY! I loved these books so very much! ❤

Blurb

It was just supposed to be a fling.
It would end and we’d go our separate ways.
I should know by now nothing in my life is ever that simple.

When Jamie Miller knocks on my door ten months after we ended our …  whatever it was, I promptly punch him in his smug face, for no other reason than I feel like it and he deserves it.

It’s probably not the best way to handle things, but I’ve never been good at doing things properly.

When he tells me he’s my new landlord, my whole world is rocked.

But Jamie? He wants to prove to me he’s more than an egotistical jerk and for some reason he’s decided he wants me.

I don’t think love is in the cards for me, and definitely not with Jamie, but he’s determined to prove me wrong.

Excerpt

“I have to get whatever this is out, before it moves again, so … watch out.”
Before I have the chance to contemplate running into the living room and dive bombing onto the couch, he pulls the tile down, and dust explodes everywhere.
Coughing, from the onslaught of insulation falling out I jolt when something smacks into my chest.
I scream, ready to lodge the thing off of me when I hear the tiniest, most pitiful meow.
“It’s a kitty!” I exclaim in surprise. It comes out sounding more like kittaaay. I see big blue eyes and dusty oatmeal fur before I hug the kitten to my neck.
Jamie steps off the toilet lid, sets down the tile he cut out, and rubs drywall dust and insulation from his hair. “A cat?”
“A kitten.” I hold out the fluffy furball proudly so he can see. “My ceiling gave birth.”
He frowns at the kitten. “It’s dirty.”
“She’s perfect,” I croon, cuddling the squirming kitten to my chest. I don’t even know if it’s a girl, but it feels like she is.
“You’re not keeping the cat, Miranda,” he growls in warning. “Animals are not allowed.”
I jut my bottom lip out. “I should get special privileges. I am fucking the landlord.” I wink at him while petting the kitten on the top of her fluffy head. To the cat I say, “How’d you even get up in my ceiling?”
Jamie sighs, scrubbing his hands down his jaw. “Its mom probably got on the roof somehow and this one got separated.”
I hold the fluffy puff out at arm’s length. “You can be the Beta to my Alpha. The Fettuccine to my Alfredo. Ooh, that should be your name, Fettuccine.”
Jamie groans. “You’re not keeping it.”
“No, of course not,” I assure him. “I’ll take her to the animal shelter tomorrow.”
“Mhmm.”
He doesn’t believe me. He’s right to be wary. No way am I willingly giving up this cat. It feels like some sort of sign. If a kitten falls from your ceiling, clearly it’s chosen you, right? The wand chooses the wizard, after all, so can’t the cat choose the cat lady?
“I promise,” I tell him, crossing the fingers of my left hand behind my back. “Fettuccine will be out of here before you know it.”
Sure, I won’t be able to keep this a secret forever, but hopefully I can come up with a way to persuade him later.
His eyes narrow and I hope to God my nose isn’t twitching, because I’m in deep shit if it is.
“You shouldn’t name it. Names lead to attachment.”
“You shouldn’t call me sweetheart. Nicknames show a kind of fondness,” I mock playfully.
He leans his head back, looking up at the ceiling as if he’s begging it for answers.
“Between you, Toby, and my mom, I’m headed to an early grave.” I grin widely at him as he lowers his head and looks at me. “What?” he asks with confusion.
“You called him Toby.”
“Dammit,” he curses, bending to move the tile out of the way. “Don’t tell him I slipped up.”
Petting the cat, I lean my hip against the counter. “Ooh, blackmail. I won’t tell if you let me keep the cat.”

Great and Precious Things by Rebecca Yarros







How do you define yourself when others have already decided who you are?

Six years ago, when Camden Daniels came back from war without his younger brother, no one in the small town of Alba, Colorado, would forgive him—especially his father. He left, swearing never to return.

But a desperate message from his father brings it all back. The betrayal. The pain. And the need to go home again.

But home is where the one person he still loves is waiting. Willow. The one woman he can never have. Because there are secrets buried in Alba that are best left in the dark.

If only he could tell his heart to stay locked away when she whispers she’s always loved him, and always will…

Great and Precious Things is a heart-wrenching story about family, betrayal, and ultimately how far we’re willing to go on behalf of those who need us most.

The Truth About Heartbreak by B Celeste

Blurb:

I fell in love with him when I was thirteen years old. 

He was older, mysterious, and unattainable. The guy I could never touch. 

Then one night changed everything for us. But there was one huge problem. 

He belonged to her.


Review:

WOW! That was the first word that came to mind when I finished this book. This is a story of River. When the book starts, River is a 13 year old foster child who is being adopted into a well off family. River is shy and very scared. Foster life for her was truly awful. Her new brother Oliver wants to coax her out and show her that she can be loved. Oliver has a best friend named Everett. Everett is 17 at the time the story begins. Everett knows about family heartbreak. He lost his mother, father, and grandmother all before the book begins. He has a good heart but is very lost after his grandfather passes. This is a book about growing up and loving someone you know you shouldn’t. I will say there is cheating in this book. Usually that is a hard pass for me. However, this book is done so well, that I didn’t even feel like Everett cheated… That must sound wrong… but, you will understand when you read the book. There is a small age difference here and I will say that nothing happens between the characters until they are of consenting age. Great book and I can’t wait to read the second book called The Truth About Tommorow.

The King: A Wicked Novella by Jennifer L Armentrout

As Caden and Brighton’s attraction grows despite the odds stacked against a happily ever after, they must work together to stop an Ancient fae from releasing the Queen, who wants nothing more than to see Caden become the evil Prince once feared by fae and mortals alike.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

  • YA/NA Romance
  • Novellla #3.5 from The Wicked Series

Now onto my fan girl freak out…..

This book y’all…OMG! The wicked trilogy is one of my absolute FAVES! When The Prince came out I was super excited to read more from this world. Boy was I not disappointed. If you haven’t read The Wicked Trilogy or The Prince, please make sure you do before reading this book! The plot and characters wouldn’t make sense otherwise.

I went back and re-read The Prince before diving into this one. The story picks up right where it left off. Brighton is seriously one of my favorite characters. She’s gone through so much in her life. The Order is almost NO help to her. It’s almost as if she’s a ghost and no one pays any attention to her (girl, I can relate!). That is except the King/Caden. Also, we get to see Tink again! I love Tink so much!! He is freaking hilarious!!

Caden, dear sweet baby Jesus in a manger! He’s struggling so much with everything that happened in Brave. Even though the things that happened were beyond his control. He’s such a good protector of Brighton. He wouldn’t let anything happen to her *SWOON*. There is still drama with the Queen going on, ugh! But the two are doing their best to keep the gates from re-opening. That would be a freaking nightmare! The last thing they need to do is release the Queen.

This story is absolutely fantastic! I cannot wait to see where JLA takes this next book. The ending left me craving more! The story was a little dark and I’m perfectly OK with it! Please make sure that if you pick this one up you have read all the others first. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Can we have the next book, please? Definitely gets all the stars from me!! 🙂
