SYNOPSIS

Only fools fall in love…

  After her senior year of high school leaves behind nothing but heartache, Olivia Beaumont is sure of this:         She’s no stupid girl. She sets out for Winston College, promising herself that she will remain focused on her   first and only love – astronomy. But all it takes is cocky sophomore Brax Jenkins and an accidental collision   with a football, to throw her entire year off course.


  A quick-tempered Southie who escaped the inner city streets of Boston to pitch for Winston, Brax is known       to play way more fields than just the baseball diamond. So, when his name is drawn to take part in his             fraternity’s hazing dare, Brax eagerly accepts the mission to take Olivia’s virginity. But he doesn’t plan on        falling hard for the sweet and sassy Texas girl who sees right through his bad-boy persona.


As Olivia and Brax battle their feelings for each other, echoes of the past year begin to surface. A boy who once turned Olivia’s whole world upside down reappears, and “harmless” pranks wreak havoc. Pretty soon the aspiring astronomer is on the verge of revealing her most difficult, heartbreaking secret. All the while, Brax must wrestle with the irrevocable dare, and Olivia struggles against all logic as she does the one thing only a stupid girl would do: fall in love.

REVIEW

First of all I would like to thank Cindy Miles for letting me the book via the goodreads New Adult Book Club Read it Review it Scheme.

I gave the book five stars as it was a fantastic page turning story about a young girl who was raped by her boyfriend in the year before their senior year and her recovery in the proceeding months/years.

The story starts when the main characher Olivia is found by her brothers after she’d been raped and one of her brothers is beating the living daylights out of Casey, her boyfriend. Then It follows her as she starts College to find that Casey is attending the same College as her.

When she starts college we are introduced to many other characters including Braxton Jenkins (boyfriend to be), Teesa (Olivia’s roomate and best friend), Noah (Olivia’s boss at the Observatory).]

Olivia is a typical teenage girl with all the insecurities that any teenager has but their intensified following her ordeal of being raped. She lives in a small Texas Town called Jasper with her three brothers, mum and Grandfather on their Horse breaking ranch. Through the story we find about her love of Astronomy.

Braxton Jenkins, who became Olivia’s boyfriend, is a Baseball scholarship student at the College that Olivia attends and he has man slut bad boy reputation so everyone warms Olivia off of him but she falls for him immediately as he does for her. Him meeting Olivia changes him from someone who sleeps around uninterested in having a relationship to someone who only has eyes for her and is absolutely crazy about her. Which is why when he breaks up with her about half way through the book it makes no sense to her or anyone else but it becomes clearer when he explains to her why when he ends up at her house during the christmas holiday.

I found this book to be a page turner due to the ups and down’s between Olivia and Brax. Along with the Intricacies of the story about Olivia’s experience with her high school boyfriend and the on going repercussions of it.

I will be recommended this book to other people both personally and on my Blog. This review will also be published on my blog on Thursday which is my review post day.

  •  Finding her past was supposed to end the nightmare. Only it was just the beginning.

    Entrusting the fate of the world, not to mention her and Isaiah’s life to a father she’s never met is a big leap of faith on Fallon’s part. But it’s a necessary risk. Ashton is the key to protecting Isaiah and keeping her out of Garrison’s clutches. He is also the only one who can tell her what she is, except what she learns is that she is from a world that is far more dangerous than anyone could possibly imagine.

    As her powers grow out of control, Fallon must pick between her mortality and a legacy that does not include Isaiah. She must summon the courage to face a destiny that will test the boundaries of everything she has ever known. But most of all, she must protect Isaiah from the monster within herself and trust the man whose toxic blood runs through her veins.

    Danger builds as power clashes between two evils, both seeking her to tip the scales to eternal darkness and suffering.

    Can humanity rise to face an ancient calling to which Fallon is powerless to stop? Can she protect those she cares about, or will their blood forever stain her hands?

    Touch Vengeance. Touch Malice. Touch Fire.

REVIEW

Star Rating: 5 Stars

Airicka thank you so much for asking me to review this book. I gave it 5 stars because it was a fantastic continuation to what I am sure is going to be an amazing series. The book is full of twists and turns and the is-it-isnt it love triangle that seems to be developing both of which keep the reader hooked.

In this book we saw Fallon meet her Father Ashton for the first time after escaping from Garrison, the man who was responsible for creating her. We also find out that she is a Wrath Sin Fledgling Princess because she is Non-human and Human and what her destiny is, to kill Garrison & when dies for her blood to kill everything that it touches.

We are introduced to the world that her father comes from and the particular region in that country he lives in Luxuria. To get into this world, which is in the Folds of the Mortal world, you have to travel through a magical portal called a nexus and to do this you need a tool that looked like a pen.

Isaiah was his usual self loving, caring and supportive of Falllon. Fallon doesn’t understand whats happening to her or what to do so she takes advice from other people which gets her into a lot of trouble. Due to this Isaiah generally is the one who takes the brunt of any attacks that they receive.

Archer is a new character that we are introduced to in this book & he’s Ashton’s right hand man. He is devastatingly good looking but it seems that he may have a dark side. It is clear all the way through the book that Ashton really loves Fallon although he not be all he seems especially when he cones to Fallon. what are his true intentions towards/plans for Fallon.

Then there’s Ashton’s wife Celia who seems to be very nice on the surface but, what is she really up to?
