Title: Be with Me
Series: Wait for You #2

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Teresa Hamilton is having a rough year—she’s in love with her big brother’s best friend, but he hasn’t spoken to her since they shared a truly amazing, mind-blowing, change-your-life kiss. She got out of a terrible relationship. And now an injury is threatening to end her dance career for good. It’s time for Plan B – college. And maybe a chance to convince Jase that what they have together is real.
Jase Winstead has a huge secret that he’s not telling anyone. Especially not his best friend’s incredibly beautiful sister. Even though he and Teresa shared the hottest kiss of his life, he knows that his responsibilities must take priority. He certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship. But it doesn’t help that all he can think about kissing the one girl who could ruin everything for him.
As they’re thrown together more and more, Jase and Tess can’t keep denying their feelings for each other. But a familiar danger looms and tragedy strikes. As the campus recovers, the star-crossed couple must decide what they’re willing to risk to be together, and what they’re willing to lose if they’re not…


“I didn’t care about them. Not like I care about you, Tess. I want this- I want us to be different. I want us to mean more than sex. I need us to mean more than that. Okay?”
Be with me is the second book in the incredible wait for me series by J. Lynn. This book tells the story of Tess, Cam's little sister and Jase, Cam's bff.

Tess and Jase have known each other forever. Ever since Jase met her, he's been dreaming of having her. But he always knew she was off limits for him.

Tess could never forget her first kiss. Not because it was abso-fucking-lutely amazing (which it was) but because it was Jase kissing her. Tess has always had a little crush on her brother's best friend. Now that they are both on the same college campus it's much harder to keep their distance. So instead of persuing something more they become "friends". Jase offers to help Tess around since she has injured her knee which means spending more time together which means that "let's be friends" isn't really working for them. So they try for more...

Jase and Tess together are like fireworks! Really! In the beginning they tried to hide their relationship from the others (mostly Avery and Cam) and they succeeded but not for a very long time. Let's just say that Cam isn't very understanding that a ladies man like Jasse is "messing" with his sister. But for Jasse, Tess isn't just a another girl, she's unique. They were so amazing together!!! They both had to go through many obstacles but they managed to overcome them and be together.

One of the things I really loved was Jase's brother. He was just soooo cute and believe me he had a very important role to the book. I can't say I was really shocked when his role was revealed but it was still a surprise for me!

Once Jase and Tess had no secrets between them they were HOT! They were such an amazing couple, really mature for their age but still after everything they had to go through, I think that was expected.

Be with me was another 5 star read for me! Filled with romance, a bit of suspense and a playboy Be with me will amaze you. I can't wait to read Stay with me, Calla's book. She really was an intriguing character.

As always a J. Lynn book is always highly recommended!!

Review: Opposition (Lux #5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Opposition
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Lux #5

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | BookDepo

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.
She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.
Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.
They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.
War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

“It’s not like I’m going to run up and hug him.”

“I’d sure hope not. I might get jealous.”

“You’d get jealous if she hugged a tree,”

“Maybe...I’m needy like that.”

I can't believe that this is the end! Don't get me wrong I loved the book but I really didn't want this series to end...

Opposition begins where Origin left off. After the alien invension and the disappearance of Daemon, Dawson and Dee, Katy is trying to find a way to reconnect with them and guess what?! Katy gets her wish but things aren't as simple as before. Daemon doesn't want to fight his people but how can he not when they are all out of control and killing humans?! Maybe the arum were never the enemies and maybe the only way to save the earth is to finally cooperate with them...

This book had so much going on. It was packed with action (lots of it), suspense, humor and Daemon Black and his kitten. I think I'll never get over Daemon and his devotion. His love for Kat was never in question, at least for me. They were such a cute couple from the beginning of the series till the very end. So yeah, Daemon surely made it to my fav book boyfriends list!

This was trully an epic series and not only for Daemon and Kat but for the secondary characters as well. I really loved Dee although, at the beginning of the book her behavior was very confusing, Dawson and Beth were both amazing characters and I'm very glad they got they HEA, Archer I just adored and many other characters. I can say that I was very happy to see some very unexpected characters in this book such as Hunter and Serena!!! I don't want to spoil anything about their involvement in the book but I can say that they rocked (arum aren't always the bad guys!).

Obsidian was the very first book I read by Jennifer Armentrout and I can't belive that this journey has come to an end. I'm not going to say anything more because I really don't want to spoil the book for you. This final book is going to amaze you. It surely amazed me. Never saw that coming.

If you're new to the series then go pick it up. If you're debating whether or not to read the final book in the series then try to avoid the spoilers but really just read it as well. You have no idea what you're missing...

Goodbuy Daemon and Kat! I was great (actually more than great!)

LIFE OF A BLOGGER #7

Welcome to Life of a Blogger, a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeats! This is where you get the chance to know the blogger behind the blog, aka: What we do when we’re not blogging! Every week there will be a new topic; mainly non-bookish, where I’ll share a little bit of life with you guys..

This week's topic is Where were you 13 years ago?

Well, 13 years ago I was just 5 years old! I was probably in kindergarten, playing and enjoying life with other 5 year olds. Life was so easy back then. I adored my teachers, although in the beginning I hated them. I can't say I was an easy kid. I was always pretty loud about my opinions(I don't do that anymore) and I always managed to get in trouble. 

Wow... thinking back now I think I should apologise to my parents especially my mother!! I was soooo mean to her...

So, where were you 13 years ago???

Erika

I was told that dreams were our heart’s desires. My nightmares, however, became my obsession.

His name is Michael Crist.

My boyfriend’s older brother is like that scary movie that you peek through your hand to watch. He is handsome, strong, and completely terrifying. The star of his college’s basketball team and now gone pro, he’s more concerned with the dirt on his shoe than me.

But I noticed him.
I saw him. I heard him. The things that he did, and the deeds that he hid…For years, I bit my nails, unable to look away.

Now, I’ve graduated high school and moved on to college, but I haven’t stopped watching Michael. He’s bad, and the dirt I’ve seen isn’t content to stay in my head anymore.

Because he’s finally noticed me.

Michael

Her name is Erika Fane, but everyone calls her Rika.
My brother’s girlfriend grew up hanging around my house and is always at our dinner table. She looks down when I enter a room and stills when I am close. I can always feel the fear rolling off of her, and while I haven’t had her body, I know that I have her mind. That’s all I really want anyway.

Until my brother leaves for the military, and I find Rika alone at college.

In my city.

Unprotected.

The opportunity is too good to be true as well as the timing. Because you see, three years ago she put a few of my high school friends in prison, and now they’re out.

We’ve waited. We’ve been patient. And now every last one of her nightmares will come true.

Review: Among the Echoes by Aly Martinez

Title: Among the Echoes
Author: Aly Martinez
Series: None

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N | BookDepo

My name was Dr. Erica Hill. I was a victim, then a witness, and then I ceased to exist altogether.
I may still be breathing, but stripped of my identity, I have long since stopped living. I am invisible, and my life depends on my ability to stay in the shadows.
But he sees me.
Slate Andrews is the embodiment of everything I have been taught to avoid. He’s rich and famous, and one image of him with a woman would earn millions for any paparazzi lucky enough to snap it. He has vowed to protect me with his life, yet he exposes me with his every breath. I should be stronger and walk away. I should disappear. But I’m terrified he would come after me.
I’m on the run, determined not to take him down with me but absolutely unable to let him go.
My name is Riley Peterson…at least for today.

“Fuck your fairytale. I just want you. I’ll make my own God damn happily ever after. But you’re the one who is mistaken. You’ll be at the end of that story, beautiful. You either come willingly or you force me into the dark after you. It doesn’t matter to me, because either way, I’ll find you.” 
Among the Echoes isn't your average romance!

This is actually the first book I read by Aly Martinez and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Meet Slate Andrews. Slate (aka Adam) is a fighter who's made millions fighting. He's a professional boxer who despite his fame hates being under the spotlight. So, everytime a game's over, he retreats in the small town he grew up in where nobody recognises him.

All Erica (aka Riley) Hill ever wanted was to have a normal life. But having spent the last three years in the witness protection program, always on the run and hiding, has made Erica realize that she'll never have what she wants. That is until she's relocated to Slate's building. Erica may be afraid of the world but when she's in Slate's arms she forgets eveything...

The first time they meet, Slate can see that Erica is terrified and wants to do anything to protect her. In the beginning, that's all that matters, protecting her. But the more he gets to know her, the more closer he wants to be. Erica thinks that with Slate she can have something she never had, but with a past like hers being with Slate means sacrifising him!

This book was beyond my expectations! I loved seeing Erica and Slate get their HEA but their stories were heart-breaking. They appeared to be so different, one was strong while the other wea, but deep down they were the same. Erica was vey intoverted at the beginning but the more she got to know Slate the more we got to see the real person that Erica was. On the other hand, Slate was a "fighter". He didn't let people get to him, he was confident, smart, hot and above everything he was a protector.

Among the Echoes was an incredible book with a nice flow, suspense, romance, a bit of action and an alpha hero. The main focus of the book was Erica and Slate's romance but there was a background story as well. I have to warn you though that the background story isn't quite pretty but explains a lot of things (like Erica's character).

As I said before, this is the first book I read by this author and it can tottally be read as a stand alone. However, I'm already planning on reading the other books in the series.

Highly recommended!
