Rating: 5 stars

Overview:
Roxy's loved Reece Anders since she was fifteen, so when the straightlaced cop finally surrendered to a steamy encounter years later, Roxy hoped he'd fall for her, too. He didn't. Or that's what she's always believed. But then Reese storms back into her life when the man who injured her childhood friend is out of prison and wanting to make amends - something Roxy cannot do.

The last thing she wants is to go there with Reese again, but he's determined to prove to her that he's exactly what she needs. Especially when a sick creep starts messing with her. But what's more dangerous to Roxy - a psycho after her or the past that refuses to let go and allow her to open up her heart again?

Review:
Jennifer picks up the general cast of her Wait For You series for this latest installment, but focuses attention on a new main character- Roxy, the bartender at Mona's. I love that you get to keep the "old" and bring in fresh blood with every book. 

Roxy was tough but beaten. She had so much to deal with but struggled with her future. Her character issues were very relateable even if the circumstances were not. 

HELLO Reece! Jennifer adds another to her Arsenal of Hotties. I was blown to bits by his depth, his strength and determination. 

There were a variety of issues at play throughout the book and they were interwoven nicely. The plot had wonderful pacing. It was a fantastic read that I plowed through in one sitting.

Excellent job, well done!

Quick Bite Review: #player by Cambria Hebert


#player (book 3, The Hashtag Series)

5 Stars

This was the MVP book of a Super Bowl worthy series. Well played. 
#INeedMoreOfThisSeries

I think this is a really well rounded series that seemlessly incorporates a variety of issues and does so organically. The humor is infused throughout the book series and doesn't compete with the heavy issues. 

This latest installment was a great way to tie up loose ends and get answers. It was a little short on information at the end, but overall was a home run. 

Genres: College life, Family Issues, Contemporary Romance, Sports, Mystery.

BOOK REVIEW: The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout


The Return (Titan Series, #1)
By: Jennifer L. Armentrout 


RELEASE DATE: February 16, 2015
PUBLISHED BY: Spencer Hill Press
COPY TYPE: E-book, purchased
GENRES: Paranormal Fantasy, Greek Mythology, Action, YA, Romance, Recovery, Suspense

OVERVIEW:
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.

Book 1 in the new adult paranormal TITAN series, spin-off to the best selling COVENANT series.
 

REVIEW:



There is a reason why Jennifer Armentrout is one of my favorite authors. Actually, several... But I'll touch on the most important reason. She can completely encapsulate the reader. Her dialogue, her descriptions, flow and depth of character completely, utterly, eternally enthrall and bewitch. 

 

In plain English: she completely rocks. 

I love her Covanent Series, and she seamlessly transitioned Seth into the main focus. It was like watching an onion get peeled layer by layer.  His character developed and depended extensively. He was as layered and rich and fulfilling as the best Baklava in town. Oh. Yum. Oh. 


Jennifer baked us a complex, organic, textural, fulfilling story that stands on it's own apart from The Covenant Series. The transition was flawless, the emotional pull even more dynamic. Excuse me while I do my happy dance while clapping like a tween at a One Direction concert.


Let me return to obsessing talking about my new book boyfriend. Seth really took me by surprise in this new series. It felt like I never really knew him. Maybe it was the aftermath. Maybe because I was so obsessed focused on Aidan. But for whatever reason, he became a tangible and tantalizing character. And that is a good thing. A fantastic thing. As in, hold-on-to-your-pants-and-try-not-to-pee-your-pants-because-this-coaster-ride-just-went-into-orbit good thing. Yeah. Seriously. 









Bravo to Jennifer to creating yet another decadent, delicious and obsessing series for us to devour. This series is now one of my favorites. Standing ovation well deserved!
