Genre: Romance

In the third book of the series, Tristan and Danika adjust to life without each other thinking that’s for the best until fate steps in and has their paths cross again. Tristan wants a second chance, but can Danika forgive him for the things that he’s done in the past?

The book spans of 6 years after the accident. We get to see Tristan make a complete 180 from the worst version of himself that we saw at the end of the second book. He broke a lot hearts (not just Danika) after making us fall in love with him during the first book and first part of the second book. He had a lot of redeeming to, not Danika but to us fans. Lilley did a great job showing the change in Tristan and how love saved him from himself.

lovely trigger quote

The jumping around part is a little boring at times, but necessary for the story. For me, I was just wanting them to get back together so bad, I would get mad that I had to wait so long. But in hind sight, it’s probably best that I did. It would be a little unbelievable if Danika just took him back after what happened. He was going to have to prove himself to her and she needed to forgive him.

 

The sexual tension between Danika and Tristan explodes about a third of the way into the book and it’s like fireworks. Tristan certainly didn’t think it would take that long. While we knew they would get together at some point, Lilley did an amazing job at slowly having Danika and Tristan get back together. We got to watch them fall back in love with one another.

fireworks

The sex scenes between them were explosive, certainly more then the other two books. When they finally get back together, you can feel the angst and tension between the two characters. This is definitely a book that you shouldn’t read in public because there a few scenes where you will be fanning yourself and maybe even blushing a little bit.

The epilogue of Danika and Tristan is a beautiful ending for their story that has a lot of ugly moments in it. The scars run deep but their love healed all their wounds from their past. Seeing the way that Danika and Tristan come to terms with what happened in their past and how they didn’t let their second chance at a happy ever after slip away.

Rating: A

Book of the Week – “Mr. Beautiful” by R.K. Lilley

mr beautiful

This is the fourth book in the series and the story will be told from the men in the story. This is certainly going to be intriguing as we get to see how James feels about Bianca and things that we can guess that go through his mind.

The third one had quite the shocking ending that certainly made the fans want more. And it looks like we are going to get it in this story. This one is supposed to take place after the events of the third book and based on the companion novel (Bad Things) this could be before or after James and Bianca get married. It will be a fun read and I’m sure there are going to be some steamy pages that will light your e-reader on fire.

#5 – Tied by Emma Chase
Out: October 7th
Goodreads Page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/20876097-tied?from_search=true

This is a big book for the series as we get to watch the beloved couple of the first book, Drew and Kate, as they walk down the aisle and get married. For those of you who have read the first book, you know that this is a very big step for Drew because he never thought that this would happen.

No doubt that this book will have a lot of the back and forth between Kate and Drew that we’ve seen in the first book and of course those romance scenes that get you all hot and bothered.

#3 –  Black Ice by Becca Fitzpatrick
Out: October 7th
Goodreads Page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16059938-black-ice?from_search=true

This is the first book that Becca Fitzpatrick has released since the final book in her Hush, Hush series was released two years ago. This story has a very thrilling aspect that will be a fight for survival for the main character.

It looks like this book will be a stand alone novel and these kinds of books are few and far in between in today’s world as the Young Adult series seem to be taking over. Of course, there is a conflict as the main character starts to see one of the kidnappers in a new light and we get a little Stockholm syndrome going on. Should be an exciting read that will keep you up late at night wanting to know what will happen next.

the young elites

#2 – The Young Elites by Marie Lu
Out: October 7th
Goodreads Page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17984141-the-young-elites?from_search=true

This is the first book in a new trilogy from the author that brought us the Legend series. On the surface, it sounds a bit like The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken, but there is more to the story then what is on the surface. The characters have these abilities that they are trying to control why not be taken by the king.

Expect this novel to have the same action and drama that we saw in her first series, with just a touch of romance so that we have something to root for. The action is what’s going to keep you going from page to page and the book should be the start of a great new trilogy from Marie Lu.

Into-the-Afterlight cover

#1 – In the Afterlight by Alexandra Bracken
Out: October 28th
Goodreads page: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16150831-in-the-afterlight?from_search=true

This is the final book in The Darkest Minds trilogy and it should be a doozy of an ending. There have been quite a few book series that have come to an end this year and no doubt that this book will be compared to those books as well.

Ruby and the rest of the group are really going to have to work together to try and survive the war and considering how the second book ended, you know it’s going to be a roller coaster ride. Fans of the book have been waiting for this book for a long time and when it comes out at the end of the month, it’s going to be great to see how it all ends.

What book are you most excited to read this month?
