Format read: e-book

Series: book 2 of The Titan series

Rating: 16+ sexual content, language, dark themes

Genre: New Adult

Goodreads page:

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+

#5 – Fighting Solitude by Aly Martinez

Out: 2/2

Goodreads page:

In the third book of the series, we follow another person in the On the Ropes world that is struggling with wanting something (or someone) that he doesn’t think that he should have. It’s going to have the angst that we have come to love from the first two books as she makes him see that there is more to the world then what he thinks that he deserves. Especially because she sees what he can be instead of what he sees.

#4 – Wicked Sexy Liar by Christina Lauren

Out: 2/2

Goodreads page:

In the next book in this fun series by Christina Lauren, she dabbles in the dilemma of when you are attracted to your friend’s ex. Do you make a move? Or just play the role of ‘friend’ and have them be off limits. Though this ultimately makes them more attractive.

The fun series is a different and fun kind of romance novel. The sex scenes are scorching hot but it’s the conversations between the two characters that are fun to read. The other couples in the books that we have read have very real flaws and ways about them that makes this book series a must read.

#3- He Will Be My Ruin by K.A. Tucker

Out: 2/2

Goodreads page:

In this new book by K.A. Tucker, she touches on a thriller and romance. She has done romance in her last series but this will be more of a thriller as she adds a mysterious element to her stories. If you’ve read her Burying Water series then you know how she can write in depth characters with more layers then onions. The story should have a lot twists and turns and will keep you wanting more. Best news is that it is a stand-alone so there will be a resolution at the end of this story.

#2 – The Power by Jennifer Armentrout

Out: 2/23

Goodreads page:

In the hotly anticipated second book of the spin-off series, we follow Seth as he does anything and everything in his power to help Josie and make sure that she is safe and alive. Seth has captured our attention in the original series, and of course we are more than excited to see where he is going to take us. He finally admitted that he has feelings for Josie and we get to see him mature into the man that we all knew he could be.



#1 – Soulless by T.M. Frazier

Out: 2/23

Goodreads page:

Fans of the world rejoice! Frazier has shown mercy on her fans and only forced them to wait two months for the sequel to the mother of all cliffhangers. Lawless had the fans in an uproar on the Facebook group demanding to know answers. In this book not only will we find out who ‘she’ is, but we will get a resolution that hopefully leaves us happy. I.e. Bear and Thia end up together because anything less may lead to a bigger uproar.
