Lux: Beginnings (Obsidian & Onyx) official Blurb:

Obsidian

There’s an alien next door. And with his looming height and eerie green eyes, he’s hot…until he opens his mouth. He’s infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, he lights me up with a big fat bulls-eye. Turns out he has a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal his abilities and the only way I’m getting out of this alive is by sticking close to him until my alien mojo fades. If I don’t kill him first, that is.

Onyx

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

Lux: Consequences (Opal & Origin) official blurb:

Opal

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 alien hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. 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.

Origin

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. 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?

Red Hill by Jamie McGuire

Red Hill by Jamie McGuire
18114980
Review: I love all of Jamie McGuire’s books, but oh my god, this book scared the crap out of me. I mean it! The entire time I read it, I felt like I was going to get eaten by the book and all the zombie’s. This book will have you ensnared from page one till the last word. It is so intense, that if you stop reading it feels like another thousand of people will die. Ugh I couldn’t sleep or read for a week after this book.

5 out of 5 stars.

New Adult, Mature content.

Summary: When the world ends, can love survive?

For Scarlet, raising her two daughters alone makes fighting for tomorrow an everyday battle. Nathan has a wife, but can’t remember what it’s like to be in love; only his young daughter Zoe makes coming home worthwhile. Miranda’s biggest concern is whether her new VW Bug is big enough to carry her sister and their boyfriends on a weekend escape from college finals.

When reports of a widespread, deadly “outbreak” begin to surface, these ordinary people face extraordinary circumstances and suddenly their fates are intertwined. Recognizing they can’t outrun the danger, Scarlet, Nathan, and Miranda desperately seek shelter at the same secluded ranch, Red Hill. Emotions run high while old and new relationships are tested in the face of a terrifying enemy—an enemy who no longer remembers what it’s like to be human.

Set against the backdrop of a brilliantly realized apocalyptic world, love somehow finds a way to survive. But what happens when the one you’d die for becomes the one who could destroy you?

Review:  Aimee Carter did a great job in ending the Goddess Test series. The book leaves you smiling for days afterward because the ending was so good. But the book still had its nail biting moments when you have no clue where the story could go. I’m looking forward to reading the next series Aimee Carter writes.

Summary: Love or life.
Henry or their child.
The end of her family or the end of the world.
Kate must choose.

During nine months of captivity, Kate Winters has survived a jealous goddess, a vengeful Titan and a pregnancy she never asked for. Now the Queen of the Gods wants her unborn child, and Kate can’t stop her–until Cronus offers a deal.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he’ll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

With the fate of everyone she loves resting on her shoulders, Kate must do the impossible: find a way to defeat the most powerful being in existence, even if it costs her everything.

Even if it costs her eternity.

Review: Ok after the first book REAL, I felt like I was on crack and couldn’t wait to get my next fix of Remy and Brook. This was an amazing second book to the Real series, it was just as intense, heart throbbing, sweet, and sexy as the first one. I still cant get over Remy, I wish he was mine, darn it!

Review: This was a great ending to an amazing series, I really didn’t know where the story was going to go. Or who was going to end up together! But WOW, just WOW. I really didn’t see the end coming at all. I cried so hard in all the parts with Tucker, he is just my favorite character for this series. Trust me when I say that you will not be disappointed at the end of this book.

Summary: The past few years held more surprises than part-angel Clara Gardner ever could have anticipated. Yet through the dizzying high of first love to the agonizing low of losing someone close to her, the one thing she could no longer deny was that she was never meant to have a normal life.

Since discovering the special role she plays among the other angel-bloods, Clara has been determined to protect Tucker Avery from the evil that follows her . . . even if it means breaking both their hearts. Leaving town seemed like the best option, so she’s headed back to California—and so is Christian Prescott, the irresistible boy from the vision that started her on this journey in the first place.

As Clara makes her way in a world that is frighteningly new, she discovers that the fallen angel who attacked her is watching her every move. And he’s not the only one. . . . With the battle against the Black Wings looming, Clara knows she must finally fulfil her destiny. But it won’t come without sacrifices and betrayal.

In the riveting finale of the Unearthly series, Clara must choose her fate once and for all.

Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) by Leigh Bardugo

Siege and Storm (The Grisha #2) by Leigh Bardugo
14061955
 Review: OMG! This book was so amazing I don’t even know where to start talking about all its awesomeness! I really thought that this second book couldn’t possibly blow my mind as much as the first one had done before. But I was wrong, I have no brain anymore. Its gone. “Poof”. Leigh Bardugo does a great job of adding just enough detail describing the landscape and the characters that makes you feel like you are one of them. Its is also one of the coolest book with a strong independent female main character, who doesn’t need a man to be strong or happy. Because in this book another love interest is introduced, which makes three guys all wanting Alina. I love her because she doesn’t need any of them to be herself. But I just hope she learns that in the third book, instead of debating with herself and Mal ( love interest one), about who she needs to be. And just be herself with all that glorious power of hers. This book leaves you desperate for more and going crazy about what’s going to happen next to Alina.

5 out of 5 stars.

The Darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina returns to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the Darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her–or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.

The Dividing Line (Space #2) by Victoria H. Smith

The Dividing Line (Space #2) by Victoria H. Smith
20456380
Review: Way more mature and serious then the first book in the series. I really enjoyed reading this book a lot more than the first one because the author talks about some major questions that were left unanswered in the first book, like Drake’s birth parents and what he wanted from life. Also how he and Lacy felt when being judged by society when they were together in public, also when being separated and not having time for the other. The biggest thing that I loved that the author talked about was Drake trying to find his identity, because when asked or surrounded by others of his ethnicity or Japanese, he did not know really what to say and he felt left out and stripped of his culture. It was also very cool of the author to throw in J Dramas/K Dramas, and K-pop! I really loved the name drop of Big Band! Overall this was a great second book in the series that far out shadows the first, I cant wait to see what in store for Lacy and Drake next.

Summary: A new love and a new life.

Drake left Chicago with little more than the clothes on his back to be with his girlfriend Lacey. Though he has no regrets, he sometimes wonders if his time spent in Paris has put his life on hold. He’s overworked and underpaid at his dead-end job, and his employer sees him as expendable. His bright light at the end of the day is Lacey, but he finds himself slowly falling into the shadow of her newly-acquired fame. The city of love has found their new starlet in Lacey, but Drake is simply the man by her side.

With all good things there comes a price.

Lacey has been living the dream. She arrived in Paris with nothing but heartache and loss. Now, she’s the rising star of the city’s newest opera and dating the man of her dreams. When her performance contract is extended, she must decide if her new life of glitz and glam is what’s best for a future with the man she loves—or if it’s just what’s best for her.

Paris brought Drake and Lacey together. But when their hopes for the future begin taking them in different directions, they must find a common ground or risk a line dividing them that may prove to be insurmountable.

Review: This book was good, but still typical for a New Adult book and any kind of Romance book. Rich boy + Poor girl = Love story. Don’t get me wrong the book is still a great read but, you still get board and find the ending typical. The book still has many great points it hits on such as diversity within family’s and the burden many young adults have with life.

2 out of 5 stars.
324 pages.
New Adult, Mature content.

Summary: When Drake started the night at his father’s campaign fundraiser, he never imagined he’d end it being conned into buying drugs on the West Side. Losing high-stakes poker has its consequences, but he’d repeatedly face them just to hear Lacey Douglas sing. Drake sees Lacey light up the stage, and he has to have her. But his intentions for being on her side of town turn out to be the reason he can’t.

Chicago native Lacey has dreams of the opera, but life has its obstacles. Lacey has come to know her hardships as part of living in the real world and accepts them fully. When Lacey meets the intense and invigorating Drake, a fire is lit inside her, unleashing those dreams again.

Two paths that should have never crossed prove to create the exact pairing the other needs. But when their worlds take time to catch up, everything they have is tested. Finding the space between the two sides that challenge them will be hard, but it’s the only place that will keep them together.

Review: Just as action packed as the first two books in the series, very well done with Eve being in charge of her life now. I really loved how she was able to keep going even with all the different difficult factors against her. The book also had a great ending for the trilogy that you just don’t see that much now a days, it actually makes you smile and cry in happiness because its so good.

4 out of 5 stars.

Then tragedy strikes, and Eve must choose who to leave behind, who to save, and who to fight in this final battle for freedom.
