Pretty interesting so far. I am so happy that some of the characters from her series the Fourth Element are in this book. I am so happy that we get to find out what has happened to them since that series ended. It was one of my favorite series ever. So I am hoping I can have at least like if not love this new series.
I actually haven't had a chance to read the first book in this series, so I am a little lost, so I would say to read the first book before this one. I forget that I didn't finish the first one, and I also forgot that I was supposed to do a book tour for this book that I am reading now. I also just got my internet turned back on so, I just haven't been able to read this book before now, since I thought I downloaded this one but didn't, so I had to wait to also downloaded this once we got the internet turned back on.
So later I will go back and read the first book to find out what all that I missed.
Where moving to another place we were living in a trailer park and now we're renting a house. So I won't have internet until they can come and put it on. I will check in once in awhile if I am somewhere that has internet connection, until mine is back on. Hopefully that won't take to long. So I will actually have time to catch up on my reading. See you all soon!!!!!
Chapter 4 (Reading Excerpt #1)
I glanced up, unable to move. A chill shot down my spine. Chadwick Kapule stood at the counter, his honey brown eyes piercing into me. He and I dated the last two years of high school. I’d broken it off after we graduated because of his jealously issues.
Chad had been one of the hottest guys in our class, so all the chicks used to crush on him. Not only was Chad sexy—he could charm you right out of your panties. I was one of the few who ignored him. At the end of our sophomore year, he pursued me. Eventually, I gave in, letting him take me out at the start of junior year. Chad’s rep was a known fact around campus. He’d sleep with girls, then dump them. Knowing this, plus everyone’s impending future of being betrothed, I never planned on getting serious. Students were buzzing that I had been Chad’s longest relationship. I wasn’t giving out, but Chad never pressed me for sex. I was the one that decided to explore my curiosity. After we’d been dating for several months, I lost my virginity to him.
Figuring he’d lose interest since we had done the deed, I avoided him in school the next day—ignoring his slew of texts. Finally, Chad cornered me, demanding to know why I’d been dodging him. I shrugged and told him point blank. “I’ve satisfied my curiosity.… What’s there to talk about? Thought we would be on the same page.”
Chad gawked, flustered, his cheeks beet red. Fumbling over his words, he’d said, “Are you serious? You’re not gonna talk to me anymore because we had sex?”
I nodded, but telling Chad that backfired. Not giving up, he charmed me until I agreed to be in a serious relationship with him exclusively. By being with him, I learned that challenging a man only made them want you more. With my blunt, no-nonsense personality, I had no problem telling him off. If he pissed me off, I’d hang up on him, ignore his texts, and avoid him in school. The gossip continued that Chad was a changed man. I cared about him at that time. But knowing what my future held when I turned twenty-one, I kept a leash on my feelings.
Chad didn’t seem to grasp reality, and his jealousy issues had no boundaries. When he got mad, nine times out of ten, it was due to him being jealous. If a guy even looked at me for too long, there was trouble. This went on for a year and a half.
Chadwick took it hard when I broke up with him. It took months before he backed off. Two weeks ago, I’d seen him at a restaurant. Tobias had taken me out to eat and Chad looked very unhappy. I didn’t even acknowledge him on our way out. Ever since, he’d started harassing me again, blowing up my cell and texting like crazy. Now he appeared right in front of me.
Chadwick narrowed his eyes. “I had to come to your job, since you’ve been ignoring my calls.”
“I was courteous to return your first couple of texts, Chad.”
“You promised we would stay friends.”
I rolled my eyes. “I did. But we’re not together anymore, so we don’t need to talk every day.”
“You told me there’s no point in having a relationship. Cuz after our twenty-first birthday we’d be separated. I let you go, knowing your logic made sense. Yet, I see you with that cocksucker, all goo-goo eyes.” He snorted. “Sounds like you’re a hypocrite. You better not be dating that clown.”
Going into this book I didn't really think I was going to like it, just because its not the type of book I usually go with. I just don't like books with a lot of sex in it, don't get me wrong I like sex in my book, but not a crazy amount. But I did really like Sarah J Maas's first book in the series of A Court of Thorns and Roses, and that one had a shut load of sexy!!!!! So not surprising I really did enjoy this book even though I loved Sarah's book more. I gave this book 4 stars even though it's more of a 3 1/2 star one, but I rounded it up to 4 due to the ending!!!!!
I am not really sure which guy's I want the two main girl characters to be with. I really like Cade the most so far for Cali, not sure whom I want Stefani, with. The guys for Cali are Cade and Zion. And the other two guys are Tobias and Dom.
The book was interesting due to the fact that the couple's have to go to different island's and date other individuals, if they want to be with their choice of whom to marry and not who the government chooses.
I think I am more torn on whom I want Cali with then whom I want Stefani with. Because Zion is my other favorite in the book, he figures things out before anyone else does. The beginning was slow and I really was going to do a dnf but I decided to keep going and I am so glad I did, because the last half of the book was pretty awesome.
I really can't wait to see what happens next in this series, what's going to happen now that they know what is going on at the island, of course Cade and Tobias are still in the dark, since there on another island.
I am so happy that I took a chance on this book, and that I was chosen to take part on the tour for this one.
I really wanted to be further along in this book by now, but my weekend and this week have been crazy. So I haven't been able to read much of the book. On the weekends my husband whom is a truck driver is home, so are family has family time on the weekends. And I have been babysitting my great nieces and nephews on Monday through Thursday, and this week my niece Andrea has been working later than usual.
Now back to the book, I am still loving Cvareh and Flor the most so far, even though I do like Ari. I am really not sure how I feel about Cvareh's sister, at all, or any of the other characters that have their own point of views in this book. So far I am enjoying this second book, but I am not as crazy for this book as much as I was for the first book. Hopefully that changes, since I am not that far into the story.
WOW this book is even better than the first one!!!! Still don't care for Philip, Heather's boyfriend and trainer, there is just something about him that I don't like and I just don't trust him either. Maybe because he's not whom I want Heather to end up with, I just am team Kadin, all the freaking way.
In this book we get both Heather and Hayden's point of view, so getting Hayden's point of view made my freaking day. I started the third book and in that one we get Kadin's point of view also, which is definitely a win in my book.
Sad ending and didn't see coming cliffhanger of a second book that's for damm sure. What a fantastic series so far.
Pretty interesting group of characters in this book, I really like almost everyone of them besides Heather's maybe love interest. I just didn't trust him after what I found out about something's this guy did. And I will just leave it at that.
Definitely Kadin and Hayden are my favorites hands down. I just love a guy that's suppose to be a bad guy, but is not as bad as he really thinks he is.
The book ends in a cliffhanger and is a short read, only takes a couple of hours if you have the time to read it in one setting. You learn a lot of things in such a short timeframe.
Finally getting back to reading this book after having to take a break from it, so I could read some books for a book tour I am doing this Friday. Cvareh still is my favorite, and so is Flor. The plot is definitely interesting, and so trying to figure out the mystery of Ari, and why she acts the way she does towards Cvareh. So I can't wait to find out more about Ari's past.
Things are really getting even more exciting in the second book. Kadin is super sexy and such a very bad boy. Phillip is okay, don't really know how I feel about him still. Hayden I love so freaking much, I feel so bad for him because of him feeling like because he's gay, he won't be able to go to heaven when he dies. I really like Frostbite, and Kristen also.
Full review to come on Friday, when I will be reviewing the first three books for this series, that will have at least 7 books, with book 4 coming out I believe at the end of this year.
Really exciting and already full of action and adventure. Favorite character has to be Cvareh (sorry if I spelled it wrong.) Followed by Florence. Even though I really like Ari as well!!!!! So far I feel this will be one of my favorite books that I read this year, will know for sure, on how the book ends.

Brooklyn Harper’s friends have betrayed her, her heart is broken, and all of humanity is at risk.
After Kirin’s unannounced arrival in Louisiana, Brooklyn finds herself scrambling for a way out of an impossible situation. Kirin is creating the deadly Genesis Cull, and Brooklyn doesn’t know who to turn to for help.
With no other options, she’s forced to trust her nemesis, Juneau Malloy. His support allows the group of Special Omen Operatives to gear up, form a plan of action, and train for the day when they come face-to-face with their worst fear—going to war with their friends.
There is a divide in the once inseparable group of Omens, and their only hope is to put the pieces back together.
Julian Yu Matsumoto agonizes over the difference between right and wrong, love and sacrifice, genocide and revolution. While he struggles with his feelings for Kirin, his moral compass is spinning round and round, his heart is being pulled in different directions, and Julian is desperate to answer questions he never thought he would have to ask.
Is Kirin’s Genesis Cull a revolution or genocide?
Could there be another way to save themselves and humanity as they know it?
Will Julian pay the ultimate price for loving a monster?
Their only hope for redemption is—the Legacy Strain.
I thought the book was good but not my favorite of the three. I would have to say that I didn't like something that we found out Brooklyn did in the story, and that's one of the main reasons that this book got 4 out of 5 stars. I think Gabriel and Porter are my favorites. I also have to say I didn't care for Julian in this book either, I just don't understand how he could feel the way he does about Kirin. This guy didn't have any great qualities and was pretty much a boring character. Besides something he does towards the end of the story.
I did enjoy the story though I thought it had plenty of action and I loved most of the book, didn't care much for the ending of it. It wrapped up okay just not the best ending for a book.
My rating would actually be more like a 3 1/2 stars but I went up a 4 star rating, due to the beginning and the middle of the book.
I am still very happy that I was chosen to take part of this book tour.

I just started this book, I am really hoping I like this one because I got picked to read and review the second book, for a book tour. I heard good things about this one, so I hope its something I will really enjoy.
Not far along because I am babysitting my niece, so reading when she's napping or isn't crappie due to teething.
