Focus by Alyssa Ivy Rose (The Crescent Chronicles #2)

Focus

Freshman year of college is hard even when you’re not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she’s in far too deep to turn back.

Now let me tell you so much has happened to poor Allie. But man is she stubborn. I mean really how many times does Levi have to apologize to her about what he did and what happened to her? He was scared to death about what was going to happen to her when she was kidnapped.

This time around though luckily Allie is with Hailey and makes some friends in college. Of course Levi does not allow any guys to go near her and makes a point of having Jared and Owen as her bodyguards. Which was great because you got to see a little more into these two characters. I love the friendship that builds between Allie and Jared, especially since she hasn’t been his biggest fan.

Hailey and Allie go and spend Christmas break with Allie’s mom and Allie’s moms boyfriend. This time Levi doesn’t go with them, even though things have been progressing. It kinda sucked because I wanted her mom to get to know him better and show that he was going to be with Allie no matter what.  I was like “wth” when they got picked up at the airport. I totally thought it was kinda pathetic that he was waiting for her like everything was going to be okay and they would get back together when she blatantly told him multiple times that it wasn’t going to happen.

Not only do we find out that there was someone on the inside that was trying to hurt Allie but we also find out about someone in Allie’s past isn’t who we think he is. I can tell you I was soooooo shocked at the end of this book. It was insane. I am anxious for the next book to come out. Obviously since I have just helped host the cover reveal for the third book. Which I believe is the last and I will be sorry to see go. But I got it in the end. Really I did. I hope you all read this book too. It is definitely worth it.

Flight by Alyssa Ivy Rose (The Crescent Chronicles #1)

Published February 18, 2013 by crysbookreviews

Flight

Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.goodreads-badge-add-plus-1

 

This was the first book I read by Alyssa and let me tell you it was well worth it. I am glad I started with this book because it was great, I loved Allie and Levi’s relationship. She was so stubborn about liking him but really he had some cocky moments that made me want to smack the crap out of him.

Of course I won’t go into too much because there will be a second review to the next book in the series after this one and it will give away a ton of things there. But really you can’t go wrong with summer in New Orleans with a hot guy. Plus she got to learn a lot about herself and how much she is willing to give up to be with him.

Learning that Levi wasn’t human was probably the craziest thing that Allie went through. Okay maybe not the craziest thing but at least it wasn’t the scariest. And boys, they never think more then 5 seconds into the future. I bet if he had it all to do over he would still do but maybe explain prior or right after. That way some things could be avoided.

There wasn’t much about this book that I didn’t love. I can’t wait for the series to come out, but I loved this book so, so much I bought all of her other books. I have very few authors like that by the way.

Empty Net by Toni Aleo (Assassins #3)

Published September 27, 2012 by crysbookreviews

Definition of an Empty Net: When a team pulls the goalie for an extra attacker, desperately seeking a goal.

Audrey Parker was in a horrible place.
She hated her job, her sister was getting married and moving out, but worst of all, she was in love with a total jerk. No matter what she did, every guy she met hurt her. All she wanted was her happily ever after. Her Prince Charming. Her Lucas Brooks! She didn’t know how to change her life but she knew she needed too.
Feeling like she was about to hit rock bottom, Audrey wakes up next to Tate Odder.

Tate Odder had lost everything.
After being brought up from the Assassins’ farm team, the Florida Rays to the Nashville Assassins, Tate hopes he’ll forget everything he has lost. He doesn’t. Each day gets harder to live in a place he doesn’t know. Even being the first rookie goalie to shut out an opposing team three times during the Lord Stanley Cup Finals, he still felt empty. With the loss of his parents and sister still heavy on his heart, Tate isn’t sure how to live like everything is okay.

But when he wakes up beside Audrey Parker, things start to change. She turns his life upside down with her kooky sense of humor and her bright clothing. She is intelligent and beautiful, and for once, he doesn’t feel empty.
Will Audrey be the person to fill the holes in Tate’s heart, making him whole again?
Or will another player ruin everything, leaving him feeling forever like an empty net? From Goodreads.

Oh my god, she did it again!!! There isn’t a book of Toni’s that I haven’t fallen in love with. I am so happy I gave her books a chance. This time around it was Tate and Audrey’s story. Now I loved Audrey in the last book and I thought Tate sounded adorable. I also wanted to smack the crap out of her for dating and putting up with Levi. She is way, way too good for him.

Luckily she got drunk and hooked up with Tate. Of course, she was stupid and decided to leave the next morning with out exchanging any kind of info. She eventually figures out who he is. I mean it was bound to happen since Tate is Lucas’ best friend. It also didn’t help that he was also her neighbor!

Now do you see why I love Toni? Her books are so amazing that they are, as of right now, the only adult books I have reviewed on my blog. But I felt that everyone should go out and buy all 3 books right now. There was so much to their relationship, her issue with his age, his family, her background, her physical and emotional issues. I was sooo happy that eventually everything came out and they were in a happy committed relationship together.

Eventually Audrey was given AMAZING news and when she got home to get ready to tell Tate about it, she ran into Levi and things went downhill from there. I won’t give anything away about what happens between the 3 of them because it was crazy horrible and awesome all at the same time.

I can’t wait for the 4th book in the series just so I can reread these books.

I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars.
