Promo "Moonlight Seduction by Jennifer L. Armentrout"

Title: Moonlight Seduction by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release date: June 26th, 2018

Cover:
 The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel...

Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up... and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.

Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman... one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

Review: Jennifer L. Armentrout/ J. Lynn

Lux series 
_________________________________________________________________________

The last thing Dawson Black expected was Bethany WIlliams. As a Luxen, an alien life form on Earth, human girls are...well, fun. But since the Luxen have to keep their true identities a secret, falling for one would be insane

Dangerous. Tempting. Undeniable.

Bethany can't deny the immediate connection between her and Dawson. And even though boys aren't a complication she wants, she can't stay away from him. Still, whenever they lock eyes, she's drawn in.

Captivated. Lured Loved. 

Dawson is keeping a secret that will change her existence..and put her life in jeopardy. But even he can't stop risking everything for one human girl. Or from a from a fate that is as unavoidable as love itself.

 ********************************************************************************************************

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring… until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something… unexpected happens.

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.

If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Favorite Quote: “I've always found that the most beautiful people, truly beautiful inside and out, are the ones who are quietly unaware of their effect." His eyes searched mine intently, and for a moment we stood there toe to toe. "The ones who throw their beauty around, waste what they have? Their beauty is only passing. It's just a shell hiding nothing but shadows and emptiness.” 

Review
To be honest I didn't want to read this book. Aliens didn't sound really appealing to me. It was the cover that made me want to read it. I mean who doesn't like looking at Pepe Toth (Cover model aka daemon). So I read it and I'm so glad I did because I absolutely loved it. 

What is this book about 
This book is about aliens. No not the murderous kind of aliens from the alien movies and not ET or slimy monsters. No very very hot aliens. 
Anyhow this book is about Katy, katy just moved to a town with precisely one traffic light and no mail service. She and her mom moved there after her dad died. Next door lives very hot daemon. He seems perfect until he opens his mouth. Deamon is rude, very rude and he knows it and doesn't care.  He and Katy do not get along, Daemon doesn't seem to get along with allot of people. His and Katy's arguments are epic. They are so hilarious and so funny. Katy really got claws. 
Daemon isn't the only one that lives next door, he has a sister as well. A sister that is much nicer but it became obvious very soon that the siblings are hiding something. Daemon is over protective and acts like everything can come crashing down very soon. 
What is the secret the Blacks are hiding, not in a million years did Katy expect that her douchy hot neighbor and his sister are aliens, and that they aren't alone. One thing is for certain, live for Katy will never be normal or simple again.

What did I like/love about this book
I loved the banter Katy and Daemon had going on. Katy is a kind woman but she got claws. She won't let anyone walk all over her, she will stand up for herself. I liked her spunk and kindness. She cares about people and she's a book nerd. And I loved that about her. 
I really like Deamon as well. Yes he was acting like an ass but he showed another side as well. He showed it by the way he cared for his sister and how he did care about Katy as well, although he may never admit it. 
I really like how the author worked with an, to me, original concept (in books) and made something amazing.

********************************************************************************************************

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...

Review
There are two versions of this book, the ebook which contains the first three books in the lux series from Daemons pov and a paperback which contains only the first book from Daemons pov.

What is this book about 
This book is the first book from Daemons pov. It's the same story. The same things that happened in Obsidian, (and Onyx and Origin depending on which version you're reading) are happening in oblivion. There are somethings that got left out and somethings that were added. 
We get to see what Daemons was thinking, feeling when he first saw Kat and so on. 

What did I like/love about this book

I loved reading this story in Daemons pov. It made me relate to him more but it also made me fall in love with him even more.  It was so great and sometimes even funny to see what he was actually thinking, especially in the beginning when he was such an ass to Katy. I really loved it.

*********************************************************************************
Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…

Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.

Something worse than the Arum has come to town…

The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.

But then everything changes…

I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?

No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…

Review

This is the second book in the series. And it's my least favorite. I was getting annoyed with Katy sometimes, I understood her, understood her reasoning but I got impatient. I remember when I read it that I felt a bit of the excitement I had for the first book leave and I was worried that I had to high expectations. Luckily I did not because this series is amazing. 

What is this book about 
This books starts where the last book ended. Katy and Daemon are connected. She is well uhm marked by left over alien energy residue. Don't know how to explain it differently, you've read the book so you know haha. Anyhow Katy is convinced Deamon only likes her now because they are connected and Daemon is hell bent to prove her otherwise. 
A new kid in town, Blake, isn't helping either because he's also interested in Katy, and Katy kinda in him because she's craving normalcy but Blake isn't interested in Katy in the way she thinks she is. He is hiding something and Katy may not like when she find out what. Trusting the wrong people can have serious consequences. 
Besides Daemon being all up in her business strange things are happening, things that aren't possible and that shouldn't happen. 
Can Katy find out what's going on and can she really believe that Daemon is actually liking her and can she admit to herself that she's also kind of into him? 

What did I like/love about this book: 
Like I said in the beginning, this book isn't my favorite in the series. I still liked it but it wasn't as good as the first one. 
I was more annoyed with Katy and got impatient with her. Blake annoyed me as well and I never trusted him. 
I really wanted Katy and Daemon to be together. They shared some great and steamy moments together. Their banter was still as amazing as it was in the first book and very funny. Tension crept up high between these two and I loved that.

No one is like Daemon Black.

When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something I'll do again, and now that we've made it through the rough patches, well... There's a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can't protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I'm no longer the same Katy. I'm different... And I'm not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I'm capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won't turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we're stronger...and they know it.

Review

Things really pick up in this book. Katy and Daemon finally admitted they were into each other and are together. I couldn't be more happy about that. 


What is this book about 
Everyone is trying to move on from the disastrous events that happened at the end of Onyx. Yet things are far from over. The DoD is showing up more often and is really interested in Katy and Daemon. 
Dawson is also something Daemon didn't see coming but his brother is far from who he used to be. All he wants is to get Bethany back. 
The characters are growing and changing. They're becoming stronger and I really liked seeing that. 
Katy and Daemon are trying to find out how to make their relationship work, to get Dee to stop stop being mad at Katy (I understand why though) and to help Dawson get Bethany back. 
In this book Katy and Daemon find out more about what the DoD are really up to. They find out that giving second chances to the wrong people can have very grave consequences and that the people you thought you could trust, the ones that you thought told you the truth were indeed lying. 
Things will never be the same for Katy, that's for sure

What did I like/love about this book
I loved seeing Kat and Deamon actually be together. To see them stop being so stubborn, well they're still stubborn but to see them actually work together and be together was so great. I really loved that.
This book is where the series really picks up. There is more action in this book than there was in the others. 

I had such a hard time putting this book down and that cliffhanger all but killed me. That was just cruel

Daemon will do anything to get Katy back.

After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, he’s facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure.

All Katy can do is survive.

Surrounded by enemies, the only way she can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don’t seem entirely crazy, but the group’s goals are frightening and the truths they speak even more disturbing. Who are the real bad guys? Daedalus? Mankind? Or the Luxen?

Together, they can face anything.

But the most dangerous foe has been there all along, and when the truths are exposed and the lies come crumbling down, which side will Daemon and Katy be standing on?

And will they even be together?

'********************************************************************************************************
Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.
She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing..

Covenant series 
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

"Love in my world usually ended up with someone hearing 'I smite thee!' as she was cursed to be some lame flower for the rest of her life."

For three years, Alexandria has lived among mortals—pretending to be like them and trying to forget the duty she'd been trained to fulfill as a child of a mortal and a demigod. At seventeen, she's pretty much accepted that she's a freak by mortal standards… and that she'll never be prepared for that duty.

According to her mother, that’s a good thing.

But as every descendant of the gods knows, Fate has a way of rearing her ugly head. A horrifying attack forces Alex to flee Miami and try to find her way back to the very place her mother had warned her she should never return—the Covenant. Every step that brings her closer to safety is one more step toward death… because she's being hunted by the very creatures she'd once trained to kill.

The daimons have found her.

********************************************************************************************************


The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi - pure-bloods - have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals - well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.

Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:

Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.

Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem - staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

********************************************************************************************************

There is need. And then there is Fate. Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's other half is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon--and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude--or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

*********************************************************************************

Alexandria isn't sure she's going to make it to her eighteenth birthday--to her Awakening. A long-forgotten, fanatical order is out to kill her, and if the Council ever discovers what she did in the Catskills, she's a goner... and so is Aiden.

If that's not freaky enough, whenever Alex and Seth spend time "training"--which really is just Seth's code word for some up-close and personal one-on-one time--she ends up with another mark of the Apollyon, which brings her one step closer to Awakening ahead of schedule. Awesome.

But as her birthday draws near, her entire world shatters with a startling revelation and she's caught between love and Fate. One will do anything to protect her. One has been lying to her since the beginning. Once the gods have revealed themselves, unleashing their wrath, lives will be irrevocably changed... and destroyed.

Those left standing will discover if love is truly greater than Fate...

What is this book about 
This novella is a go between book 3 and 4. We see what happened after Alex awakened and went evil. Everything is told in Aidens point of view. Aiden is willing to do everything to help Alex even if his actions will make her hate him forever.

I loved that this book was told in Aidens pov. It was nice to see what he was thinking, how he was feeling etc. 
I wish it was longer and that we had more from Aidens pov.

*********************************************************************************

Fate isn’t something to mess with… and now, neither is Alex.

Alex has always feared two things: losing herself in the Awakening and being placed on the Elixir. But love has always been stronger than Fate, and Aiden St. Delphi is willing to make war on the gods—and Alex herself—to bring her back.

The gods have killed thousands and could destroy entire cities in their quest to stop Seth from taking Alex’s power and becoming the all-powerful God Killer. But breaking Alex’s connection to Seth isn’t the only problem. There are a few pesky little loopholes in the whole “an Apollyon can’t be killed” theory, and the only person who might know how to stop the destruction has been dead for centuries.

Finding their way past the barriers that guard the Underworld, searching for one soul among countless millions, and then somehow returning will be hard enough. Alex might be able to keep Seth from becoming the God Killer… or she might become the God Killer herself

The Titan Series 
___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

Review

I must say I loved this book allot more the second time I read it. I liked it the first time obviously but it didn't make a big an impact that the covenant series did. 
I didn't really love nor hate Seth in the Covenant series. Did I get mad at him for getting between Alex and Aiden yes, do I hate how he behaved, yes, do I hate the things he did, definitely yes but do I hate him, no I don't. I could see how Seth got manipulated into doing what he did. I saw there was more to him than he was showing. And I believe, even more so after reading this book, that he never truly meant for things to happen as they did. He did everything in his power to make it right. 
I didn't like Seth with Alex because I knew Alex would never truly love Seth like she does Aiden. I do love Seth with Josie. He deserves someone that loves him for him, and not be second. 

What is this book all about.
This book takes place a year after the ending of Sentinel. Seth traded his mortal and after live for Aiden to become immortal and therefor be with Alex. Seth is basically the gods bitch boy, their assassin. Whatever the gods wants him to do, he has to do. Apollo is the one sending Seth on assignments. This time Seth has to find a person. He only know's the persons initials and on which university to find said person. Apollo is the master of giving as little information as possible and only provide all the information a while after it would have been nice to have said info. 
Anyway Seth sets of to find this mystery person and finds out it's a girl named Josie. Seth is shocked as he finds her because she reminds him of a certain girl he rather not thing about. 
Josie seems like a ordinary human at first but as it turns out that is far from the truth. Josie is very important in the upcoming war. You see the Titan Seth and the others set free, that escaped in Sentinal, decided to free his buddies. And now they're planning all kinds of havoc. 

Josie didn't have an easy childhood. Her mother got diagnosed with schizophrenia and that hasn't been easy for Josie to live with her. To make matters worse, her mother never really made her feel like she wanted her. After running into a hot guy of collage, her lives changes in ways she never could have imagined. She gets thrown into a world where Greek Mythology isn't mythology at all. The gods are very much real and they need her help. 

This book is the start of Seth finding his redemption in Josie. He is desperate to find himself again. All he's been all his life is just the Apollyon and with Josie he feels like he can be more than that. 

What did I love about this book 
I loved seeing some of the old gang again, Luke, Deacon, Apollo etc. But what I liked most is getting to know more about Seths backstory. I really felt sorry for him and what his live has been like. He never felt wanted and never had a family that loved him. I can see how that was used against him. He craved a family and when that got dangled in front of him he got blindsided by what was actually going on. 
I loved Josie, I loved how she saw him as just Seth. She handled the situation she was in very well. 

I do have to say, If you haven't read the Covenant series and you're planning on reading both this series and the Covenant series, read the covenant series first. If you read this series first you'll receive some major spoilers about the covenant series. The Titan series can be read as a complete standalone series.

********************************************************************************************************


With any great change, there is always strife, and the Covenant University has become the frontline between pure-bloods who want the Breed Order reinstated and the half-bloods who want the right to control their own destinies.

Fate has other plans.

 The violence is escalating and war between the races seems inevitable, and it couldn’t come at a worse time. Hyperion may be out of commission, but Josie and Seth know they have only earned a reprieve.  Seth must get Josie fully prepared, which means controlling her newfound abilities, and they need to find the other demigods before the Titans do.

But the gods are sensing a greater threat.

Only one thing is more dangerous than a bunch of starved Titans, and that’s an out-of-control Apollyon. The aether in Josie is drawing Seth in deeper, and when lust mixes with love and gives way to power, he knows being close to her is not only dangerous to her, but to everyone around them, but letting her go requires a level of selflessness that just isn’t Seth’s style.

The paths taken in the past are becoming the roads of the future.

Just as chaos breaks out, familiar faces from the past return, complicating the already strained bond between Josie and Seth, and when the danger from the Titans erupts with devastating consequences, the dark allure of power calls to Seth again, but this time Josie might not be able to pull him back.

 And when the struggle between power and love becomes the deadliest battleground, there may be no salvation.

Review
This book begins right where the first one ended. Seth and Josie decided to give their relationship a try. Josie is awakened as a demigod and she is training to become stronger and control her powers. 

What is this book all about 
In this book we continue Seth and Josies story. Josie is training to become stronger and to control her powers. She and Seth are growing closer together but there is still something that is holding Seth back. Things are getting more and more tense at the covenant as the pures and the halfs are fighting amongst themselves. Not only that, the Titans are still lurking around waiting to attack. 
Seth and Josie are trying to find the other demi-gods so that they can fight the Titans for once and for all. The thing is, they can't do it alone. They need the help of other demi-gods to track and protect the other born demigods. Will Seth be able to deal when he has to look the consequence of his action in the eye? Or will his resentment though wards himself keep him and Josie from being together, from being happy? 
The war between the greeks and the titans are far from over. Their will be a price to pay, the question is what is the price and are Seth and Josie willing to pay or will it destroy them forever. 

What did I love about this book.
I felt so bad for Seth. The way he feels about himself is heart breaking. He acts all confident and cocky but deep down he is a broken man. He deserves to be happy and so does Josie. They are so good together. 
I loved seeing Alex and Aiden again. It's great to see them so happy. 
The one thing I loved, maybe the most, is when Josie stood up for Seth. It really showed how much she loves him. 
I can't wait to read the third book! March can't come soon enough.

A bloody path has been chosen…

The war against the Titans continues, and they remain determined to wreak havoc on the world, but Seth has become something all gods fear. Now the most dangerous, most absolute power no longer resides in those who have been freed from their tombs.

The Great War fought by the few is coming…

All may doubt and fear what Seth has become. All except the one woman who might be his final chance at redemption. Josie will do anything to prove that Seth is on their side, but fate has a nasty way of changing lives, of changing people.

In the end, the sun will fall…

The only way they can save the future and save themselves is by facing the unknown together. It will take more than trust and faith. It will take love and the kind of strength not easily broken. No matter what, their lives will never be the same.

For what the gods have feared has come to pass. The end of the old is here and the beginning of the new has been ushered in…

“I’m not leaving you. We’re in this together, Josie … If there is anything in this world, there is us.” 

Review
This one might be my favorite in the series so far. We really see Seth stepping up but we also see him settle. He becomes calmer, more himself. As if he finally found his place in the world. It's very nice to see.

What is this book about 
This book starts of with after Seth left. Josie was taken and all kinds of hell are breaking loose. Zombie's aren't just a movie character anymore, no those fuckers decided to become real. 
Seth is on his way home, far away from the ones he cares about because he doesn't want to hurt them anymore. When he gets there he finds out more about what he really is, as hard as it is to believe, seth finally embraces his true self. 
When he finds out Josie is taken by the titans he's willing to burn this world and the next down in order to find her and keep her from harm. 
While Seth is looking for her Josie's stay with the Titans is far from a nice relaxing holiday on the beach. No the titans are cruel and get off from feeding on her and torturing her. 
Will Josie be able to hang on long enough for Seth to find her or will Seth loose yet another person he loves.

What did I like/love about this book
I loved seeing Seth more settled. I loved finding out what he is and it makes so much sense to me. He is a great characters and I'm a 100% in love with him now. 
I really love Josie, she grew so much. Became such a strong girl. 
Can't wait how their story turns out.

What is this book about 
This book is about Jasmin aka Jas and Dez. Jas was always in love with Dez but one day he decided to up and leave. She hasn't heard of him in years. One day he was back and Jas's father announces that she was to mate him. It came as quite a shock to Dez that Jas has no interest in doing so and she made that quite clear. 
Will Dez be able to charm Jas and make her fall in love with him again? He has seven days to pull it off, is she says no after those day's she won't have to mate him. 

What did I like/love about this book
I liked that it was about something different. I've never read a book about gargoyles so I was quite intrigued when I read the summary. Jennifer certainly didn't disappoint. 
I liked the introduction into this series and I really liked the characters. 
What I didn't like is that the actual series will be about other characters. I became attached to these ones and I want more. That aside I'll definitely read more!

One kiss could be the last.

Seventeen-year-old Layla just wants to be normal. But with a kiss that kills anything with a soul, she's anything but normal. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses.

Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever.

Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul.

But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.

But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Some loves will last ’til your dying breath

Every choice has consequences — but seventeen-year-old Layla faces tougher choices than most. Light or darkness. Wickedly sexy demon prince Roth, or Zayne, the gorgeous, protective Warden she never thought could be hers. Hardest of all, Layla has to decide which side of herself to trust.

Layla has a new problem, too. A Lilin — the deadliest of demons — has been unleashed, wreaking havoc on those around her…including her best friend. To keep Sam from a fate much, much worse than death, Layla must strike a deal with the enemy while saving her city — and her race — from destruction.

Torn between two worlds and two different boys, Layla has no certainties, least of all survival, especially when an old bargain comes back to haunt them all. But sometimes, when secrets are everywhere and the truth seems unknowable, you have to listen to your heart, pick a side — and then fight like hell…

Review
I just loved this book. I was waiting so long to find out who Layla choose. And I must say I'm really really excited about the story. Since I'm not sure I can guarantee a spoiler free review, don't read this if you really don't want to know.  The first part of my review will be spoiler free, the second part, not so much. So be warned. 

What is this book about
This book continues right where stone cold touch ended. Layla, Roth and Zayne figured out who the lilin is. Well they didn't really figured it out, the lilin showed it self. It turned out it is Sam. Well it looks like sam. So you can imagine what a shock this is for Layla. 
On top of all the Lilin crap, layla has to make a choice. She either chooses Zayne, the man she loved and adored since her childhood or the sexy demon prince Roth, who accepted her for who she is and makes her feel like she shouldn't be ashamed of herself.  
We find out very soon who layla chooses, so we get to see their relationship blossom in the book. There's also enough action, like in the previous books. 

I  hope this captured the essence of the story without spoiling to much. In the next part I will spoil the crap out of it so stop reading if you don't want to know. 

What did I love about this book
I'm just so happy with lyla's choice. I'm team roth since the beginning so I'm very happy that she chooses him. I think, like layla said, that she could have been with Zayne, that they'd make it work but that it wouldn't last long. I felt like Zayne started to express his love for her after another guy got in the picture and showed interest. I felt like he was a little to late and I feel like he never really accepted her. I know he tried and he thought he accepted her but his clan, family, his very own being just never really did not for a 100%. I mean his clan thought her to be ashamed of herself, that she wasn't good enough. Zayne was there for her yes but it's just wouldn't have worked in my opinion.  And Roth, he just accepted her for who she is right away, he made her feel like she was worthy and that there was nothing wrong with her. He thought her that not everything is black and white and that there is more than what meets the eyes. He also trusted her and was always honest with her. And Roth gave up, and continues to sacrifice, everything for Layle. Not that Zayne wouldn't have done that for her but Roth actually did it in my opinion.  He is just perfect. Don't get me wrong Zanye is a great guy but just not THE guy for Layla. 


I loved that we got to experience Layla and Roth's relationship. Roth kept surprising me. He was so sweet and undemon like. I also liked how Layla grew in this book. It truly felt like she accepted herself and got stronger. She really grew. I liked her in the first book, thought she was oke in the second (still liked her) but loved her in the last one.

A Wicked Trilogy 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.

Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.

Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.

But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Review

Jennifer really is the queen of cliffhangers. I should have known better haahha. Also she has an amazing talent and that makes her one of my favorite authors ever. I would have given this book 10 starts if I could. 

What is this book about

This story is about Ivy, she is part of an order that fights Fae, creatures from the underworld. Fae's have blue eyes and silvery skin. They have the ability to compulse/ influence and feed off humans, killing them in the process. Ivy is a 21 year old, college student, with blue eyes and red curly hair. Her appearance is often compared to merida from a disney movie. Ivy is a strong and sassy female. She has lost allot and has problems trusting people. 
The story starts of very exciting and thrilling and stays that way. 
Ivy gets injured on her job, which leads her to meeting Ren. Ren is also part of the order. He is a 24, very fit male, with striking green eyes, tattoo on his arm, chest and back, rides a motorcycle, is sassy, strong, takes the lead, knows what he wants, charming, funny and is a good person. 
As if fighting and killing fae isn't dangerous and hard enough, things are getting tougher and worse for Ivy. Can she survive? 

Another amazing character in this book, that I just have to talk about, is Tink. Tink is a brownie, a little creature that lives in the underworld. He is such a funny character. I really loved him!!! I kind of imagine him like a combination between a human and a kelpie from harry potter hahah. 

I can't say an awful lot about the story without spoiling it. All I can say if you're an jennifer fan, or fan of paranormal, romance, action, new adult story's and want something with more original creatures,and even if you don't, this book is a definite must read. 

What did I like/love about this book
Did I love this book? Hell yes I did, Jennifer never lets me down. I'm very intrigued with her strong characters and the way they learn threw out there life. It's inspiring really. I love the chemistry she creates between the characters, making it hot and steamy but also very light and funny

Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

Review
OMG! I just love it! The first one was good. I was so surprised it didn't get as much love and attention as it should. Well this one is even better. It is so darn good. 

What is this book about
Well this book is about Ivy. Ivy is a member of the order and she fights fae. In the first book we see how she meets Ren and how they fall in love. Ren isn't just any order member he is one of the elite. In the last book we see that the fae prince escapes and nearly kills Ivy. But that isn't all. We also find out that Ivy is a so called halfling. A mixture of fae and human. And that she is the "thing" that ren was ordered to find and kill. 
Well this book takes of where the first one end. Ivy is trying to come to terms with what she is. She is scared to death that if she tells Ren he'll leave her and well kill her. Not only that the fae prince wants her. He wants to impregnate her in order to create a baby so he can open to doors of the other world and take over the earth. To make matters worse since the prince tasted her blood he can find her anywhere. There isn't anywhere on the planet that she could run....

What did I like/love about this book

Well I just love Ren. He is just amazing. But also I really love Ivy. She is a strong, very loyal and funny girl. I just loved seeing how much she was growing in this book. 
The one who did the most growing is Tink. I won't say anything els but that. You'll understand after you've read the book. 
I really liked the Fae world and how the story changed. I can't wait to read the last book! 

Overall I just loved the story line. Seriously I have yet to read a book by jennifer that I didn't like or love. She is just amazing.

Ivy Morgan hasn't been feeling like herself lately. Not like anyone can blame her. After all, being held captive by a psychotic fae prince hell-bent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld is bound to leave some mental scars.

It’s more than that, though. Something dark and insidious is spreading throughout Ivy, more powerful than she could ever imagine... and it’s coming between her and the man she’s fallen deeply in love with, elite Order member Ren Owens.

Ren would do anything to keep Ivy safe. Anything. But when he makes a life altering choice for her, the fallout of his act has far reaching consequences that threaten to tear their lives apart.

If Ivy is going to have any hope of surviving this, she must put aside the hurt and betrayal she feels, and work with not only those she loves, but with an enemy she would rather kill than ever trust. War is coming, and it soon becomes clear that what Ivy and Ren thought they knew about the Order, themselves, and even their enemies, has been nothing but a cluster of dangerous, deadly lies.

Ivy knows she must be more than just brave to save those she loves--and, ultimately, to save herself.

Because behind every evil fae Prince, there’s a Queen….

Review
This is the first book I've managed to read after my brain injury ( I got a blood cloth in my brain) and I just couldn't focus enough to read. But I managed to read this one and I'm so glad I did.
In hindsight it might have been better to reread the first two books before reading this one because I noticed I was a little hazy on the details.

What is this book all about
This book picks up where the last one ended. Ivy got rescued from the evil prince and is now hiding with people that she never thought would exist, good fae that don't feed on humans.
Ivy has been through some horrible stuff and it's not something one just gets over. She is struggeling and the people around here are struggeling to help her. But excaping the clutched of the evil prince doesn't mean it's over. He still wants to make apocolyps baby and Ivy isn't down with that.
The prince is hunting her down, but are things really what they seem? Are the things you were told the actual truth?

What did I like about this book
I liked how real this book was. Eventhough fae aren't real, ptsd and trauma is and it was portrayed in a very realistic manner in my opinion. In some books we see heroines struggle for a page and then be totally fine with everything and all is good again. It's not that I wanted Ivy to struggle but for the sake of the story i'm glad she did.
I just love Ren, I mean who doesn't melt when a tall, hot, muscled guy with piercing green eyes calls you "sweetness", and don't lie to me, I know you do. I love how he was willing to stay with Ivy to the end, through everything. Yes they faught but he never gave up.
I absolutely adore Tink, he might be one of my favorite characters Jen's ever written. He is so funny and eccentric and full of live. And weird, just love him. It was so funny to see how other fae were reacting to him, especially in his 'adult' form.

Overall I really enjoyed this book. But it doesn't feel like a definite ending to me. I feel like this could be the third book in the series and there could be another one. Not that i'm not pleased with the ending because I am. I just miss a 100% closure.
Also like I hinted at above, be aware of the cliffhangers. There was stuff happening that I did not see coming, ever.

I can't wait for the novella that comes out in 2018 called the prince. You might think 'what the hell, why are you excited to read about that asshole', well read the book and find out why.

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

For twenty-one-year-old Sydney, being in love with Kyler isn't anything new. They'd been best friends ever since he pushed her down on the playground and she made him eat a mud pie. Somewhere over the years, she fell for him and fell hard. The big problem with that? Kyler puts the 'man' in man-whore. He's never stayed with a girl longer than a few nights, and with it being their last year in college, Syd doesn't want to risk their friendship by declaring her love.

Kyler has always put Syd on a pedestal that was too high for him to reach. To him, she's perfect and she's everything. But the feelings he has for her, he's always hidden away or focused on any other female. After all, Kyler will always be the poor boy from the wrong side of tracks, and Syd will always be the one girl he can never have.

But when they're stranded together at a posh ski resort due to a massive Nor'easter, there's nothing stopping their red-hot feelings for each other from coming to the surface. Can their friendship survive the attraction? Better yet, can they survive at all? Because as the snow falls, someone is stalking them, and this ski trip may be a life-changer in more ways than one.

Review 
I really enjoyed this book. I just have yet to find a story created by Jennifer that I have yet to like.
Although this book isn't my favorite, I still liked it.

What is this story all about
This story basically is about childhood friends Sydney and Kyler who are in love with each other but they don't know that about each other. 
Sydney has a crush on Kyler for as long as she can remember but Kyler always seemed interested in every female but her. 
Kayler always cared allot for Sidney, they grew up together after all but he doesn't think he's good enough for her, that she is too good for him.
When Kyler and Sydney get stranded in a ski resort, with nothing to take their minds of things beside each other, it gets hard to not give in to temptation. 
Will they give into their attraction towards each other and admit their feelings or will the intimacy they found go away once the snow stops falling. 
On top of all that it seems like there are some people in the ski resorts that don't want them to be there and things are getting dangerous. Will those people and Kylers past get in the way of a relationship or will love find a way? 

What did I love about this story
I really liked the banter and chemistry Kyler and Sydney have. Sydney really is a sweet girl and I liked her. She got hurt bad in past relationship and is very hesitant to start a new one. 
Kylar seems lost to me, I don't know why and I don't know how to explain it, it's just a feeling I got. I can't really remember why he feels like Sydney is too good for him. He can be really blind sometimes. For example, when they where younger they used to hang out allot and have weekly movie nights and stuff like that but suddenly he started blowing Syd off to hook up with random girls. At a dance he promised Sydney he'd dance with her and she waited for him but he never showed. After he got his head out of his own ass, Syney was already in a relationship with another. 

The timing was never really right for Syney and Kylar. I really enjoyed reading their story.

But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge, and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.

Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.

Review
I have yet to read a book from Jennifer that I didn’t like. I have said it many times and I will say it again this woman is a book writing genius

What is this book about 
This book is about Andrea (Andy) and Tanner. In this book you’ll also find the characters from Frigid, Kyler and Sydney. Andrea is a trust fund baby, but that doesn’t mean she acts like a spoiled brat. She volunteers at a suicide hotline and at the mental ward in a hospital. Both her parents are successful plastic surgeons and her brother is also studying to become a surgeon. Andrea was studying to become a surgeon but changed her major to teaching. Andrea likes to party and drink, and boy can she drink allot.
Tanner is working at the fire station and he’s going to the cop academy soon. He always wanted to help people and be a better man and cop than his father. Ever since he met Andrea he was interested. Who couldn’t be interested in a curvy read head with the pretty hazel eyes. 
Andrea and Tanner are good at one thing bickering and fighting. Their banter can go on for a long time, sometimes crossing the line of insulting each other.
It still bugs Andrea that Tanner doesn’t remember her from the two classes they shared in there freshmen year, and that he slept with her roommate. She had a serious crush on the guy. She loved his cropped on the sides- short on the top, hair, his stormy blue eyes and his rock hard abs. I mean what is not to like, and on top of that he is a funny, charming and good guy.

What did I like about this book.
This book covers mental illness very well ( I won’t spoil who has a problem and what it is) I could really relate to that since I have been struggling with some personal problems as well. This book showed me that It’s okey to be “messed up in the head” and that that doesn’t mean that nobody will love you. People will help you, want to help you if you let them. That it doesn’t mean you’re unworthy or that nobody will fall for you. Again you just have to let them. This book also showed me that you don’t have to have a size 2 to be attractive.
I really loved Tanner. He is a very sweet, charming, sexy, caring and funny guy. He really cares for Andrea and he really is what she needs.

The Gamble Brothers 
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

She'll make him lose control...

Madison Daniels has worshipped her brother's best friend since they were kids. Everyone thinks she and Chase Gamble would make the perfect couple, but there are two major flaws in their logic. 1) Chase has sworn off relationships of any kind, and 2) after blurring the line between friends and lovers for one night four years ago, they can't stop bickering.

Forced together for her brother's wedding getaway, Chase and Madison decide to call a truce for the happy couple. Except all bets are off when they're forced to shack up in a tacky 70’s honeymoon suite and survive a multitude of "accidents" as the family tries to prove their "spark" can be used than for more than fighting. That is, if they don't strangle each other first…

Review
This book is a bit different than Jennifer's other books. Her writing style has changed over the years. I'm not used to her writing in third person. Anyway, it's not that she isn't good at it because she it, but it was different. 

What is this book about 
This book is about Madison and Chase. Maddi has always liked Chase but she wasn't sure it was the same for him. Well his actions made that pretty clear, or did they. 
Chase has a difficult childhood. His father was a fucked up person and he screwed up his children. Chase was so scared of a normal relationship that he just fucked around. And who wouldn't have him, he's hot, rich and successful. All he needed was the right person to show him that he does indeed deserve love and that the person he loved all along was right in front of him.
So when Madison and Chase get stuck together at her brothers wedding, chase doesn't wast this opportunity to get what he wants. Maddie however disagrees. Will she cave?

What did I like/love about this book
I liked that this book was about second chances. We all screw up but that doesn't mean that that's it. Everyone deserves a shot at love. 
I liked to see how the characters changed in the book. They aren't big changes but they're there. 
Overall it was a very enjoyable read.

Wait for you series
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Some things are worth waiting for…

Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…

Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…

But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for…

Review
I just love this series. This book might be one of my all time favorite books. I really enjoyed this story and the characters in it.

What is this story about. 
This story is about avery, who goes off the collage. She is a quiet girl, who tends to keep to herself. On her first day of collage, she's running late. Trying to get to class in time she runs into this tall hot guy with very pretty blue eyes. And when I mean run into, I literally mean run into. During the day they have a few encounters. Avery comes to realize that she and the hot guy, called Camaron aka Cam, live in the same apartment building, on the same floor.
Cam really is interested in the shy georgous red head that ran into him in the hallway and is determent to take her out on her date. He didn´t think that pretty and kind of skittish Avery would be so good as saying no to him. This only intrigues him more. As cam and avery grow closer, it seems like avery will do anything to protect her secret, even if that means pushing him away. Only Cam isn´t one to give up easily but when will even cam have enough?

What did I love about this story.
I just loved the humor and sas the characters had. Jennifers ability to create amazing characters and ability to keep a story light and funny while also talking about heartbreak and secrets is juts amazing.
I loved cam, he is such an amazing and caring guy. He is really patient and he would do anything for Avery, but also be very clear where his boundaries are and really stands by them is a very good thing.
I also loved Avery, she really didn't have it easy. Although I really wanted her to see that she can trust cam and doesn't have to push him away so much. I understand but I was scared of them losing each other because Avery was scared.
Avery really loved to dance, but because of something that happend to her 5 years ago, just just can't bear to be on a stage anymore. Her parents where really crappy parents during all of this. The way they appear to their country club buddies is more important then their own daughter. I really really disliked them.
I really am an inpatient person ahhahaha, so I got really frustrated with avery sometimes, I really wanted to slap her in the face and tell her to open her eyes and really look at cam and just go for him since she obviously cares for him.

This story is really about learning to love and trust someone and that it's oke to move on and live you life. Do what makes you happy.

Review
I just love love this book. It still has the same amount of excitement, like the first one. I didn't love it any less and I still felt the same thrill I felt when I read the first one. I still got very impatient and had to constantly try and calm myself down and tell myself that everything will be fine.  Cam and Avery's story really captivate me. 

What is this story about. 
This story is basically Wait for you in cam's point of view. We got some extra scene's, some scene's where skipped but the story was the same. 
We really get to know cam more and see how he felt during the entire story.  
You could read this book as a stand alone but I'd recommend reading Wait for you too, to hear both sides of the story.  I don't know which book I would recommend more. 

So for those of you who haven't read Wait for you and want to read this one. Here's is what the story about. 
Cam comes from an loving family and has quite a reputation as a lady's man. One day he meets avery morgenstern, who litterlly runs into his live. He just can't forget about her. He didn't expect Avery to be so resillient to his charm and that intrigued him even more. He just can't help but think that Avery has a big secrets, that she does everything for to protect is.  He really wants to win Avery's trust but will that be possible?  How far is cam willing to go for avery. 
Cam really is a funny, trustworthy and caring guy. He can bake, is athletic, smart and owns a pet turtle, he also got rocking abs with baby blue ayes, so what's not to love right? 

What did I like/love about this book
I loved seeing Cam and Avery's story from Cam's pov. I liked seeing what he was thinking, how he was feeling etc. I really love this story and reading if from cam's pov made me love it more.

Favorite Quote: “Time was a funny and fickle thing. Sometimes there was never enough of it, and other times it stretched out endlessly.”

Review
This time around the focus lies on Teressa and Jase. Teressa is Cam's little sister and Jase is one of cam's very close friends.

What is this story around
Teressa always had a big crush on Jase and she's kinda sure that Jase likes her back. But after one amazing kiss he tells her it can never happen again and that he regrets kissing her. That really put a dent in Teressa's confident.
Teressa always loved to dance and she was planning on going to a major dance academy but an knee injury messes up that plan. Her back up plan was to become a teacher, so she attends to the same collage as Cam and Avery go to. This is only a temporary situation for her because once her knee heels and the doctor gives her a thumbs up, she'll go back to dancing and away from Jace.
Jace has some secrets of his own, secrets that makes him feel like Teressa is to good for here. That and she is Cam's sister and cam is very protective of his little sister, especially after all that has happened to her in the past. Will the past keep tearing Teressa and Jace apart or will they be able to break fee from it and really live in the present.

What did I like about this story.
I really like theressa, she is really and admirable and strong girl. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it. But she can only be hurt one to many times, and Jace, as much as she loves him, keeps on hurting her.
I liked Jace, I really didn't expect the secrets he has. It really came as a surprise to me.

I really enjoyed this book and I loved the chemistry between Jace and theresa. They really are a great couple. But this isn't my favorite book, cam and avery still are my favorite couple.

At 21, Calla hasn’t done a lot of things. She’s never been kissed, never seen the ocean, never gone to an amusement park. But growing up, she witnessed some things no child ever should. She still carries the physical and emotional scars of living with a strung-out mother, Mona—secrets she keeps from everyone, including her close circle of college friends.

But the safe cocoon Calla has carefully built is shattered when she discovers her mom has stolen her college money and run up a huge credit card debt in her name. Now, Calla has to go back to the small town she thought she'd left behind and clean up her mom’s mess again. Of course, when she arrives at her mother’s bar, Mona is nowhere to be found. Instead, six feet of hotness named Jackson James is pouring drinks and keeping the place humming.

Sexy and intense, Jax is in Calla’s business from the moment they meet, giving her a job and helping her search for Mona. And the way he looks at her makes it clear he wants to get horizontal . . . and maybe something more. Before Calla can let him get close, though, she’s got to deal with the pain of the past—and some very bad guys out to mess her up if she doesn’t give them her mom.

Review

I really really love this book. Calla might be one of my favorite heroines in this series. I just can't remember her well from the previous books but that didn't bother me at all. I also really liked a different setting than the college the previous books are.

What is this book about. 
This book focuses on Calla. Calla is one of Tess aka Teresa's friends but she is really focused on her career and getting her nursing degree. I really like that because I'm a nurse and I can relate with her.
Calla grew up in a really crappy home. Her mother was a drug addict and she had tons of different men over and bad party's. Very soon in the story, Calla finds out that her mom emptied her bank account leaving her with no money. Calla is forced to travel home and find out what is going on only to find her mother being MIA and in debt with a very wrong guy.
Calla decides to stay in her old home over the summer and work in her mothers bar.
She did not know she'd meet sexy, funny and intense guy Jax, who workes at her mothers bar. She also didn't expect him to be interested in her. You see calla really has a low self-esteem, also because of the scar she has on her face and because of the burn injuries she got when she was younger.
Jax is an ex marine (I believe, either that or he was a solder) and he also has his personal demons to battle with but he can't help and be intrigued with Calla.

What did I love about this story
I really liked Calla, I felt like I could really connect with her and I really cared for her. I also love Jax, he really is a good and strong guy and he is exactly what Calla needs.
This story was also very trilling and there was so much suspense in this story that made it hard to put down.
This might be my second favorite book in this story, It might even tie with Wait for you and Trust in me on the first place. I just can't choose.

I also liked seeing the previous main characters in the other books again, it really keeps the stories alive and give them the chance do develop more.

“Sometimes when things are falling apart, they may actually be falling into place.” 

Review
I just finished this book in one sitting, well not a sitting because I was laying in the bathtub but I couldn't put it away, not even when my mother called me for dinner, I just couldn't stop. I took me nearly 5 hours to finish. So my hands and feet are all wrinkled now.

What is this book about. 
This book is about Roxy, Roxy works at Mona's ( Calla's mother old bar, that is now owned by Jax) and she loves painting. Roxy is flirty, sassy, and very funny. Some of the words she used where just hilarious. She is also taking online classes to become a graphic designer. And the shirts she wears are just awesome. On of my favorite was "I'm a special snowflake". I really laughed out loud when I read it and then I was like I really need this shirt. Around five or six years ago Roxy's best friend charlie got a victim of a crime which caused major brain damage. Roxy is seeing him every week on Friday but her friend just isn't there anymore. That and the guilt she is harboring from the incident is making Roxy very scared to lose someone and that makes her scared to fall for someone, especially Reece because she know can take her heart but also because she can loose him due his line of work.
Reece, what to tell you about Reece. Reece is a former marine that is a police officer. He and Roxy where kind of childhood friend and Roxy has been in love with him for a long time. Even tho she doesn't admit it. Eleven months ago she kind of hocked up with Reece and they have not really spoken ever since. She didn't expect Reece to step up and tell her he misses her and wants to move one. You see, Reece doesn't remember a thing about that night eleven months ago, only waking up and Roxie being there and regretting not remember being with her. Which Roxy mistook for Reece regretting being with her not regretting not remembering. Any how they start to work on there relationship but it isn't as easy. Strange things are happening in town, there is some serial rapist/ women attacker on the loose. Roxy is starting to notice strange things happening in her apartment. Things movie, dishwasher being turned on, thinking she is seeing someone outside ect. Working threw both there past and dealing with threat's in the present doesn't withhold Reece from being with Roxy.
Threw out the book you get to see Cam and Avery, Tess and Jace, Olly and Brit and of course Calla and Jax.

What did I love about this book
I loved Reece, he was so protecting and patient with Roxie. He also was very very sexy and very intense, like pantie melting intense. Reece was very very ripped, amazing abs, blue eyes ( can't remember his hair color tho) and he was tall. As hot and sexy he is, his caring nature is the best thing he has.
I loved Roxy, she was very strong, witty, very funny and I would love the have her as a friend. I also loved seeing the old gang threw out the books. Roxy has brown eyes with a different color streak in it, I believe she also has blue or grey kind of eyes and she is very beautiful. But I think her personality is the most beautiful thing about her.
I also liked that this book, just liked the previous book, contained more thrill, while keeping the original feelings this series has.
I also liked Katie the stripper/ psychic . She is a very nice side character and she is very funny. Not sure If we can expect a book about her but I'd read it.
I also can't wait to read more about Nick and Stephanie. I think I'm going to like nick allot.
There were some new side characters, like a gay couple Jacob and Marcus. I especially liked Jacob, any guy who introduces himself like this "Hi i'm jacob. I go to collage at Shepard, I'm a Gemini. I'm allergic to game of thrones because I can't keep track of who dies on the show. If you talk shit about doctor who, we cannot be friends, and I still want a goddamn pony and no one will let me buy one. Which Tessa replied on with no grown up wants a pony. Then Roxie said: "I want a lama". I was laughing out loud when I read that. I kept thinking I like these people so much. I want my own cam, Avery, Tessa, Jace, calla, Jax, Brit, Olly, Roxie, Reece and Jacob.

Review
How much do I love Jen's book. Like so danm much. Each one is so amazing and even though this is the fifth book in the series. She still made it feel like something new. I didn't know how she would write this story. It could be just like the others but she really put a twist to it. I haven't read a book like this before. And while writing the book from a different angle she still kept the other characters in it, and gave it the same feel the entire series has.

What is this book about
Well this book focuses on Steph (Stephanie). We met Steph for the first time in Wait for you. She is the girl that has a friends with benefit relationship with Cam. We also see her in Be with me when she helped Theresa after she found her roommate dead. But after that not so much.
So steph moves across the country so that she can work for a martial arts company. We know that Steph is far from being insecure about her sexual reverences. Some may call her a whore or a slut but I don't feel like that. She is just a down to earth girl that likes sex.
While moving into her new apartment she meets Nick. He helped her move a box after almost dropping it when trying to carry to much. At a bar ( the same bar that Jax owns in stay with me ;) ) she sees nick again and the have a one night stand.
After a view days after the one night stand, Steph goes back to mona's ( the bar ) and meets Roxy. After Nick sees her he kind of troughs a fit. He is telling her that she can't be here, that they had an agreement. That he thought it would be a one time thing etc. Of course Steph doesn't like this and tears him a new one. After that they kind of become friends of sorts. Only they will find out that there a small complication of sorts that will tie their futures together in a way they might not be ready for.

What did I love about this book.
I like Steph. I like how comfortable and confident she is in her own skin. I like her take on life and the way she lives. She is a strong girl.
I like nick but he can be a bit of an asshole. At least that what it seems in the beginning. Through out the story we learn that he is a sweet, caring and amazing guy. Who will do anything for the ones he loves.
I liked seeing the other characters throughout this book. I like seeing Jax and calla a bit in this book. Also liked seeing Avery and the crew a view times. I loved seeing Roxie more and ofcourse Katie. Katie is the extravagant stripper, who is just hilarious. I liked how Roxie and Katie welcomed Steph into town. And how their friendship developed. I also really loved how Nick's character changed throughout this book. He is such an amazing guy.

He sees the woman who’d always been there for him, the one person who believed in him no matter what.

Brock knows she’s the one he should’ve made his, and what begins as a tentative friendship quickly turns to red-hot chemistry that sparks a flame that burns brighter than lust. Falling for Brock again risks more than her heart, because when the past sorrow-filled and guilt-ridden past resurfaces, and a web of lies threatens to rip them apart, the fallout could lay waste to everything they’ve fought to build together, and destroy the dreams of those they care most about.

Dying sucks
...and high school senior Ember McWilliams knows firsthand.

After a fatal car accident, her gifted little sister brought her back. Now anything Ember touches dies. And that, well, really blows.

Ember operates on a no-touch policy with all living things--including boys. When Hayden Cromwell shows up, quoting Oscar Wilde and claiming her curse is a gift, she thinks he's a crazed cutie. But when he tells her he can help control it, she's more than interested. There's just one catch: Ember has to trust Hayden's adopted father, a man she's sure has sinister reasons for collecting children whose abilities even weird her out. However, she's willing to do anything to hold her sister's hand again. And hell, she'd also like to be able to kiss Hayden. Who wouldn't?

But when Ember learns the accident that turned her into a freak may not've been an accident at all, she's not sure who to trust. Someone wanted her dead, and the closer she gets to the truth, the closer she is to losing not only her heart, but her life.

For real this time.

Review
I wasn't really sure whether I would like this book. I'm not that into YA anymore. But being the big JLA fan that I am I just had to read it and I'm glad I did.

What is this book about
This book is about Ember. Ember isn't your typical highschool girl. She is covered in scars and well technically she should be dead. She was in a car accident that should have killed her but somehow her little sister brought her back. Sadly it killed her father. After Embers accident she found out she had a rather odd gift, every living thing she touches with her bare hands..dies. Not very practical. 
After her fathers accident, her mother totally checked out. She went in a catatonic state and never came back out, so it's up to Amber to take care of her sister.

One day Amber and her sister get taken. A man that kind of manages a house for kids with abilities took her so they can help her. There she meets Hayden. 

Hayden is a guy she would totally go for, he's kind, caring and very hot. And for some reason Amber can touch him for a small amount of time. What can possibly go wrong......

What did I like/love about this book
I liked that this book really kept the mystery going. I don't remember thinking that the story was predictable in any way. It kept you on your toes. 
It was thrilling and very sweet.  I enjoyed watching Amber and Hayden grow closer together. 
Overall I really enjoyed this story and I would definitely read it again.

As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it's one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took "mean girl" to a whole new level, and it's clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She's getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she's falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the truth about what happened to her that night isn't just buried deep inside of Sam's memory - someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Review
If you're doubting if you want to read this book ask yourself this: "do you like pretty little liars?" "Do you like crime shows like NCIS and Criminal Minds", "Do you like books with romance and steamy scenes" and most importantly "do you like Jla?". If you're answer is yes, go read this book! If it's no, go read it anyway. 

What is this book about
This book is about samantha, or sam as she's often called. Samantha wakes up with amnesia. She remembers nothing. She finds out that she and her best friend disappeared  and that only she resurfaced. No one knows what happened that night. 
As sam's trying to pick up her old life she is finding out that she doesn't really like the person she was. To be fair she was quite a bitch. Especially to the guy that was always there for her, a guys she always kind of liked, Carson. 
As sam  is trying to find out what happened that night but is also trying to make the most at doing better, becoming a better person. Changing who she was is bringing her closer to Carson. 

Will Samantha find out what happened and will she get her happy ever after or will finding out what happened destroy her. Are you sometimes better of not knowing what happened? 


What did I like/love about this book
I liked the mystery of this book. I liked that I didn't guess what happened and who was the killer. I mean I guessed, quite allot actually, but I was never a 100% sure. 
I liked how Sam made the best of the situation and tried to become a better person. 
I also liked Carson, he was very sweet. He and Sam made a cute couple.

What did I like/love about this book
I liked the suspense and thrill of this book. It was like watching a very hot episode of criminal minds. 
I never once figured out for sure who the killer was. I mean I guessed but I wasn't a 100% sure. 
I really loved Cole. He was such a hot alpha male. He was very caring and very kind. He really made Sasha feel safe and I liked that. 
Overall I really enjoyed this book! I hope that Jen will write more suspense novels. I really liked them.

*********************************************************************************

Between the pissed off creatures that want demon-hunter Lily Marks dead and the fallen angel who just...wants her, Lily is about ready to trade in forever for a comfy job in a cubicle farm.

The fact that she and Julian are civil to one another is enough to have her thrown out of the Sanctuary, but she can't shake her not-so-angelic stalker or how he brings her dangerously close to ecstasy.

Her forbidden relationship with Julian provides the perfect fuel for suspicion when a traitor is discovered to be working within the Sanctuary. Lily quickly finds herself hunted by well, everyone.

Her only hope is to discover the real traitor before she loses everything--and she'll need Julian's help. That is, if Julian is really there to help her...and not destroy her.

Yeah, being a Nephilim isn't everything it's cracked up to be.

Review
I have read this book many times and I loved it every time I read it. Obviously I'm not as shocked anymore when I find out who is betraying everyone but that doesn't make the story and less good. 

What is this story about.
This story is set in the world of the nephilim. The nephilim are the children of (fallen) angels and humans. The nephilim are responsible to fight the fallen angels, minions (nephilim turned dark because of the fallen persuasion) and dead heads (humans who's bodies are possessed by another soul that isn't willing to move on)
The main character in this story is Lilly, she is on of the few female nephilim and a very strong hunger. She has long auburn hair, creamy skin and stunning green eyes. 
The main mail character is named Julian. Julian is a fallen angel so you can imagine him being perfect looking. He is over six and half feet tall while Lilly is only five foot four...in heels. He has sandy blond hair that comes to his shoulders, striking blue hair and sizzling features and ofcourse a rock har body. 
Then there is Luke, Luke is Lilly's best friend and they've known each other for a long time. Besides Luke there is Nathaniel, he's the head of the organization named the sanctuary that Lilly's working for. 
Another important character in this book is Michael. Michael is a police officer that stumbles into the nephilim world by accident. He doesn't realize that it was his world all along. 

Other than fighting the minions, dead heads, and fallen, Lilly is also fighting her attraction for Julian. Her wanting him is very against the rules. She's suppose to kill him not kiss him. But Julian is impossible to ignore, very fast and very strong. He also saved her live eight time and possible many more times that Lilly doesn't know about. As of that isn't enough there is also a mole in the sanctuary and Lilly is desperate to find out who it is, especially when she becomes the main suspect. 

What did I like/love about this book
I loved the trill and suspense in this book. I also really liked the setting, I've always liked mythology. I loved the characters. Loved how strong and passionate lilly is and  I obviously loved the sexy and strong Jullian. I loved that this book shows you that there's always a choice and that you shouldn't judge a person on their race or job. There is always more to a person than you might suspect. 

I could tell that this is one of the first books that Jennifer has ever written because her writing style has changed over the worlds. The way she builds a world, creates characters an her talent to tell an amazing story has only grown over the years but this book shows that the women always had skill.

*********************************************************************************

He’s arrogant, domineering, and... To. Die. For.

Hunter is a ruthless killer. And the Department of Defense has him firmly in their grasp, which usually doesn’t chafe too badly because he gets to kill bad guys. Most of the time he enjoys his job. That is, until he’s saddled with something he’s never had to do before: protect a human from his mortal enemy.

Serena Cross didn’t believe her best friend when she claimed to have seen the son of a powerful senator turn into something... unnatural. Who would? But then she witnesses her friend’s murder at the hands of what can only be an alien, thrusting her into a world that will kill to protect their secret.

Hunter stirs Serena’s temper and her lust despite their differences. Soon he’s doing the unthinkable—breaking the rules he’s lived by, going against the government to keep Serena safe. But are the aliens and the government the biggest threats to Serena’s life… or is it Hunter?

Review
So this is a spin off book from the lux series. You don't have to read the lux series but I do recommend it. 

What is the story about. 

The story starts with Serena's friend freaking out about something. Talking about some weird glow in the dark persons that supposedly are the senators son's. So what could go wrong right. Well serena is finding out that allot can go wrong when the senator wants you dead. The senator thinks serena's friend told her something, something very important. But serena doesn't know, what she supposedly knows.
Hunter isn't a guy who you should take home to your momma, he is a cold hard handsome pale eyed, dark haired, hot son of a bitch, oh yeah he is also an alien. There are two kind of aliens on earth. The luxen, who are light and there are the arum, who are darkness, shadow. Hunter is one of those arum. And he is assigned to protect Serena from harm . He didn't think Serena would be so gorgeous, spunky and kind of a fighter. He also didn't think aurum could develop any kind of feelings other than lust and hunger. And there is chemistry and lots of lust in their story. 

What did I love about this book 
I really really really loved this book. Hunter, omg that man is so freaking hot. And the intensity between him and serena, hot danm. 
I also liked to read about the aurum more. It made me think about good and bad, because no race is either good or bad. That's also the case with the arum and the luxen. Both race's have good and bad people.
I really liked serena, she really handled herself well. 
God I loved Hunter he was so snappy and sarcastic and just hilarious. I really love him, and he was hot.
OMG those scenes with serina, I feel my head getting red already thinking about it.
