Oh boy I didn’t know what I was getting myself into when I started reading this book. I thought this book was going to be like the last book that I read that had a ‘mystery’ flare to it, but boy was I wrong. This book is suspenseful and thrilling and will have you wanting to leave your lights on as you read the book at night.

Or maybe it is just me.

The books focuses on a survivor of a serial killer and how these strange things are starting to happen when she returns back home. Sasha had been through Hell and back and is trying to move on but it’s not as simple as that.

While Armentrout dabbles in the struggles that it was for her to move on, there wasn’t that much struggle that we saw. After watching crime shows based on real events, I would have expected more of a struggle for her to trust people, but she whole-heartedly trusted everyone that she once knew before she moved away. Also, I would have liked to have seen more of that struggle because it helps develop the character seeing where they were and where they are now.

It would be an Armentrout book if it didn’t have some romance in it. Cole is trying to make up for a mistake that he made when Sasha was first attacked and promises himself that he will not let her down again. We get to see him try and move past the guilt that he had carried with him the 10 years since the event and the continued guilt as he can’t figure out who is harassing Sasha. He is all alpha male and definitely not someone that you want to mess with.

SWOONING!

The ending to the book is the best part of the book. Throughout the last 20% or so of the book, you start to uncover more of the truth about who is harassing Sasha. You start guessing the truth about what happened and try to figure out how it all fits together. When you finally get to the truth, you start kicking yourself because the answer was right in front of you but you were too gun-ho on one person when it’s really someone else. I love when that happens. I hate when I figure out who the bad person is because it seems anticlimactic.

I love that Armentrout dabbled in something different and I hope that she does a book like this again. I love that the book shows the range that Armentrout has with her writing and that she can write over different genres.

Mare Barrow is a prisoner, powerless without her lightning, tormented by her lethal mistakes. She lives at the mercy of a boy she once loved, a boy made of lies and betrayal.

#4 – The Hot One by Lauren Blakely

Out: 2/27

At first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend’s place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her back.
But trust me on this count – she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you’ve got to play to your strengths when you’re fighting an uphill battle. I’m prepared to fight for her…and to fight hard. I might have let her slip through my fingers the last time, but no way will that happen twice.
***
He’s the one who got away…
The nerve of Tyler Nichols to reappear like that, stripping at my job, showing off his rock hard body that drove me wild far too many nights. That man with his knowing grin and mischievous eyes is nothing but a cocky, arrogant jerk to saunter back into my life. Except, what if he’s not a jerk . . .? He’s the one I’ve tried like hell to forget but just can’t. Maybe I’m cursed to remember him. My money is on him being the same guy he always was, but what’s the harm in giving him a week to prove he’s a new man? I won’t fall for him again.
But how do you resist the hot one…

#3 – Roman by Sawyer Bennett
Out: 2/21

In a league full of troublemakers, Cold Fury defenseman Roman Sýkora stands out—at least when it comes to negative publicity. When he’s not chilling in the penalty box, the sizzling Czech skate demon is racking up tabloid headlines for his scandalous behavior with the ladies. But now Roman’s feeling the burn from management to clean up his act, or else. Luckily he’s got an enticing distraction: a fun-loving barista who plays the ukulele and brings out a side of Roman he didn’t know he had.

Lexi Robertson came to Raleigh, North Carolina, to finally meet her father, Brian Brannon, and her half sister, Gray, both of whom work in the Cold Fury’s front office. That’s where she first meets sexy, intimidating Roman—who’s really a big softie at heart. As one relationship takes off, another begins: Brian seems to be clicking with Lexi’s boss at the coffee shop. But when the friction between Roman and her new family heats up, Lexi wonders whether she’s a pawn in their game. Feeling hurt and foolish, Lexi’s ready to quit while she’s ahead. Trouble is, Roman’s not ready to quit on her.

#1 – Royally Matched by Emma Chase
Out: 2/21

Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:

Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.

A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world’s most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.

While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.

The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit… and her naughty sense of humor.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.

As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.
