{Review} Fall with Me by Jennifer L. Armentrout

GENRE: New Adult
THEME: Romance, College, Chick Lit
RECEIVED: Edelweiss

I just can’t get enough of the Wait For You series, I always think I’m not going to love this one as much as I loved the last, but nope I love each one more and more and for very different reasons. The characters are always well developed, passionate, and trying to find a way to open up and love again. Fall with Me broke my heart and made me swoon; I loved every minute of it.

Fall with Me follows Roxy, in high school she was involved in an incident where her best friend was severely injured. She blames herself even though there was nothing she could do, when a bully threw a rock and hit Charlie in the head. No matter how many years pass she visits him every Friday to talk, even if he can’t respond. And everything changes when the person who hurt her friend is released and asking to see her, it also brings back the one man she who broke her heart. Officer Reece Anders and Roxy have a past, he cant seem to remember what happened that one night, but he’s determined to get to the bottom of it. Plus he cant stand being far from her nor seeing her hurting for Charlie after all these years. But when strange things start happening in Roxy’s house and she feels like someone’s watching her, Reece will do anything to keep her safe and fix what happened between them.

Roxy is all heart; her best friend was everything to her. No matter that Charlie doesn’t even know she visits him, she wants him to know she’ll always be there. I loved how Roxy never gave up hope for her friend even when his parents do. She even stands up for him when the man who caused the injury wants to ask for forgiveness. It’s a tough subject that Armentrout touches, hate crimes in teens are common and the more its noted and shown as a negative the more people start to open up and understand the side effects. Roxy is in a tough situation when it comes to her social life too. She’s been in love with Reece Anders for a long time and the one time they “hooked up” Reece was not coherent, nor did she know he was that drunk. Now they have some akward tension and Reece doesn’t understand what he did wrong. Roxy feels embarrassed and so many misunderstandings keep them apart. I loved their cute banter, the way they easily can get into a conversation, and their passion is off the hook! In the end Roxy goes through a lot of high but many lows to find her happiness.

Reece has had some tough decisions to make while in the force, its haunted him and made him feel so much more whenever hes called out for a tough job. Roxy is someone who hes always had this connection with, and he’s trying to figured out how to reconnect with her after their “one night” together. He’s a very determined man and when it comes to Roxy, he wants to continue with what they had. I loved this guy, he’s a totally alpha male and will do anything and everything for Roxy. He cares for her deeply, loves her artistic side and her quirky t-shirts that she always wears. They have such a sweet connection and really are good for each other during tough times.

Overall as I said before this series keeps getting better and better, but the emotion in this book just hit all the right spots. Plus all the old gang is back, Calla and Jax, Teresa and Jace, and of course Avery and Cameron. It was awesome to see how they are all progressing in their lives and relationships. Now for the next, I’m super excited to see how Nick and Steph connect! I adore Nick so I’m rooting for some happiness for him!


Review: Dust to Dust by Karina Halle

Dust to Dust (Experiment in Terror #9) - Karina Halle

GENRE: Horror
THEME: Mature, Romance, Ghost

This is a really hard review for me to write, I’ve been reading this series since the beginning and never really wanted it to end. But no it is the end and I have to say good-bye to two of my favorite characters. As a huge X-Files fan this series brought back memories and it was like reading new episodes of Mulder and Scully, but with much more sass and chemistry. Oh and if you haven’t read this series, you must read them all before this one. Alright…so now on to my review!

Dust to Dust follows Perry and Dex in their final Experiment in Terror. Leaving off from the end of Ashes to Ashes, Perry has come face to face with Michael, Dexs’ brother who is actually the evil that has been waiting for the moment to finally get what he wants. Dex has to take on his past, while also protecting Perry and her family. Perry is trying her best to protect Dex and will go to great length of crossing through the Thin Veil to stop this malevolent evil. But Michael isn’t the kind of evil they have faced before and it might just be their last.

Perry has always been the tougher one of the duo, the one who has her eyes open the most and run head on into danger for her loved ones. In Dust to Dust she is faced with the challenge of holding on to Dex, but also bonding with her sister and mother with the fact that their bloodline is something special. What I loved most about Perry in this book is how much she has grown with her family, the struggles they have had, and the arguments and betrayals have all led up to this. Both daughters and mother have to confront and fight the very fear that can destroy them all. Then there is Perry with Dex, these two are so freaking awesome together I can’t even describe it. From the minute they meet at the Lighthouse to this end where they walk into Dexs’ childhood home, they are together and are meant to be together.

Dex has to confront everything he didn’t want to remember from his childhood, his brother is not his brother anymore but something that wants to use him. Most of this book Dex was confused and well… other things that I don’t want to give away. But most importantly he needed and only cared about Perry. She was his one constant and always the one person whom he felt could grounded him. Oh and I cant forget, the readers will love Dexs’ POV!!

In the end, the whole gang is back, Ada, Perry’s sister gets a lot of page time and helps her sister deal with the thin veil. Their mother surprised me the most and seriously made me cry like a damn baby because well so much happens and she seriously changed my mind about her. Then there is the ginger, Maximus, who may have frustrated a lot of people through out the series but hell… he does a massive kicker in this one that I know fans will be talking about for a while. Pretty much every character was important, seriously a huge piece of the big puzzle that was the evil surrounding Dex and Perry. Lots of things from Dexs’ past are brought out and WOW, do they have to be ready for a head on attack.

Overall this was the best of the best in the series and that’s saying something, because I loved every one of these books. Halle wrote two characters that are not only unforgettable, but can easily connect to because they are just that awesome. This series is scary and will have you not wanting the lights to go out, but its also about two people that would go through hell and back for each other and that just rocks. I will never forget Dex, Perry, Max, and Ada as well as fat rabbit. The series started with a bang and ended with one. I applaud Halle for one hell of a series. Thank you!

This is a mature adult novel, with sexual content and very scary moments. I highly recommend this to fans of Stephen King, who like some really great twists with mystery and intensely shocking moments.
