In the 7th book in the Jade series, Jade and Garrett come to terms with the people that have been following them in the last book and are pleasantly surprised at who it is. They think that they are finally free of the Organization but quickly find out that once they want you, there is no escaping their grasps. They must risk everything that they’ve built to try and get to their happy ever after.

Many of the issues that I had with the last book and half were still present in this story. It starts off great with excitement but it’s anticlimactic. It’s slow in the middle as nothing happens and then there is a cliffhanger ending that is enticing enough to keep you interested.

The story fails to do what the first three books did so successfully and that show that life is anything but a picnic. Jade and Garrett got married young and only knowing each other a year, but this doesn’t seem to be a problem for them. They hardly fight and if they do, one concedes to the other without a big argument. They lost that fire that we saw in the first few books and I for one miss it. We saw a shimmer of that a few times in the book but not enough to keep me interested in the whole book.

The bright side of the story is that Everhart has been able to work the Organization into the story as a main component rather then some side story that we know nothing about. We are finally seeing all the sides of this organization and what makes it tick. It introduces us to Garrett’s grandfather, Holton, and we see the bad side of being part of the Organization.

The next book is the final book in the series so it should be wrapping up the whole story. If Everhart can stay away from repeating herself over and over again and redoing the same scenes we’ve read in previous books then it should find some success, but if she just takes pieces from each book then it might end in a disappointment.

Book of the Week – “Becoming Us” by Allie Everhart

In the final book in the Jade series, Garrett is going to be searching for Jade (who got kidnapped at the end of the last book) while trying to figure out what the organization wants from him. This is going to have a lot of drama and a bit of a thrilling mix as Garrett will stop at nothing to get Jade back. Should be interesting to see how things unfold in this final book and see if Garrett and Jade can get their happy ever after.

fractured

#4 –  Fractured by Sydney Landon
Out: 12/20

The first book left fans wanting more and that’s the way to kick off a new series. Lia and Lucian will have to try and move on from what happened in the first book. Lucian fell in love despite trying everything in his power to not do that but it might be to much for Lia. It should be another roller coaster ride as the first one was and another one that you can’t put down.

forever with me

#3 – Forever with Me by Kristen Proby
Out: 12/2
In this book, we follow Domenic the love child of the patriarch of the family as he embarks on his love affair. He was introduced about half way through the series and quickly became a fan favorite as he had all that romantic qualities that we love to read in a leading male.

Wicked AmazonGRSW

#2- Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout
Out: 12/9
In the first book in this new series by Armentrout, we get a mix of thrilling, romance, and supernatural as the lead characters try and understand the magic of New Orleans. Ivy and Ren are going to be our two leads in this story as they try and figure out the murders that is going on in the city. No doubt that that characters are going to be fun to watch as Armentrout is amazing at creating dynamic and fun characters and make a story that readers just can’t put down.


breaking the rules

#1- Breaking the Rules by Katie McGarry
Out: 12/9
This book is falling between the first and second book. We get to see that road trip that Noah and Echo talked about in the second book. This is going to be a great addition to the series as we finally see the part of their relationship that puts the nail in solidifying their relationship. Expect a lot of antics and fun times for these two and the moment that will make you fall more in love with them.

Cover for “Becoming Us” by Allie Everhart released

becoming us

Yesterday, Author Allie Everhart released the new cover for the 7th book in the Jade series, Becoming Us, through her Facebook page.

The cover is a beautiful picture of Jade and Garrett and really shows the bond that they have with one another. This book will certainly challenge them as a couple more so then they had in the past as the Organization refuses to let Garrett goes (it appears).

There is still no official word on whether or not this will be the final book in the series, but we should find out when the book is finished. Everhart has expressed how much that she loves writing about Garrett and Jade and it wouldn’t be surprising if there is another book or two up her sleeve.

Becoming Us doesn’t have a release date yet, but if you add the book to your Goodreads shelf, you can receive the information when it comes out.
