In the second book of the series, we follow Seth and Josie as they continue to train for the war against the Titans while trying to tread the waters of their relationship. But when something unexpected happens, Seth must decide how much that he loves Josie and if he’s going to be able to do something he hasn’t done before, the right thing.

As with the first book, we continue to peel back the layers of Seth and see the broken parts of his heart. Josie brings out the softer, more human side of Seth. He always comes off as this ‘I don’t need anyone and I can do everything by myself’. Josie is something that he’s never had before and he doesn’t know what to do. She is his weakness and he’s running around trying to figure out how to keep her safe without hurting her at the same time.

What I love the most about Jennifer Armentrout’s stories is her characters. While there are similarities between them (like some of the sayings that they say) there are distinctive characteristics about them that makes them stand out. In this book, we get to see those characteristics comes out from Seth and Josie. Especially when it comes from the pains of having a broken family.

In the original series, there were plots and turns around every corner. This book didn’t really have any big plot twists that you didn’t see coming, but it did have a lot of plot points that could later become twists. There is at least one more book in the series and if you’ve read Armentrout’s books, you know that you can never trust that everything is going to go according to plan.

Obviously the best part of the book is that we get to see how love can change people. For Seth, he was the bad boy who turned good for the love of a good woman. Josie becomes stronger, more confident in herself with the help of Seth. He sees what she can really become and doesn’t let her settle for anything less. While Seth is not one to admit that he’s got a weakness, his feelings for Josie makes him understand Alex and Aiden more. As we know, he had a hard time understanding it and couldn’t see how Aiden couldn’t give up on Alex.

I can’t wait to see where this series is going to lead us. There was a bit of a cliffhanger ending, but not one that is going to drive you crazy for months on end until the next book comes out. It gives us the peace of mind to try and figure out what’s going to happen and wait patiently for it to come out.

Rating: A+
