Katiebird reviews The Return by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Return (Titan #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

The Fates are cackling their bony asses off…

It’s been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they’ve given him have been violent and bloody–which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He’s got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.

Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy’s deal might be, but it’s a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.

But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.

Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.

 

Go ahead. Check out the cover again. I’ll wait. Yep. That’s Seth. Looks cocky, right? But hawt. He’s has been a personal favorite of mine since he made his appearance in the first book of the Covenant series, Half Blood. I was so happy when Jennifer announced that she was giving him his own series.

Katiebird Reviews: Finding It by Cora Carmack

Finding It by Cora Carmack

Book summary:

Sometimes you have to lose yourself to find where you truly belong…

Most girls would kill to spend months traveling around Europe after college graduation with no responsibility, no parents, and no-limit credit cards. Kelsey Summers is no exception. She’s having the time of her life . . . or that’s what she keeps telling herself.

It’s a lonely business trying to find out who you are, especially when you’re afraid you won’t like what you discover. No amount of drinking or dancing can chase away Kelsey’s loneliness, but maybe Jackson Hunt can. After a few chance meetings, he convinces her to take a journey of adventure instead of alcohol. With each new city and experience, Kelsey’s mind becomes a little clearer and her heart a little less hers. Jackson helps her unravel her own dreams and desires. But the more she learns about herself, the more Kelsey realizes how little she knows about Jackson.

 I realized that one of the books on my favorites for 2013 list was this incredible book by Cora Carmack, and I didn’t review here on BT. So in my effort to tie up loose ends, before moving forward in 2014, I am going to share with you, my thoughts on probably the best book in the Losing It series.
