Unforgiven by Lauren Kate- 5/5 stars

I cannot believe the Fallen series by Lauren Kate is 8 years old already. Has it really been that long since the first book come out? Goodness... it makes me fell old 👵
I dedicated my very first blog post to this series as it was the series that got me into reading ya fantasy/supernatural, but I haven't yet read Cam's story. Between book box subscriptions, new releases, arcs, etc Cam's story (that is now two years old) was kept unread. Well, this week I finally got to it!

It isn't really the 5th book in the series, it is a stand alone book on Cam. I knew that before going in, so it wasn't a surprise. It is set many may years after the Fallen series, Daniel and Luce are long gone...

The story is mostly set in the present. Cam finds out that the love of his life is in Hell and he bargains with the Devil to set her free. Every now and then there are glimpses to the past, to when they met, fell in love, and Cam broke her heart. 

The Fallen series is rather cheesy and preteen ish, I was surprised with Unforgiven. It was a somewhat more mature work by Lauren Kate. I would wager it has something to do with  Cam's character being darker than Daniel's and Luce's ever were, giving the author more freedom to write a darker and tad more mature story. It was no doubt a fast read and my favorite book in the series. I have always loved Cam and it was nice to get a book focused solely on him.

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancé and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she

Crow and Reaper by A. Zavarelli (Boston Underworld #1 and #2)

Crow and Reaper by A. Zavarelli (Boston Underworld #1 and #2) @glimpses_of_my_books These books are (to me at least) two VERY different books and the reason you should never give up on an author after just one book. I did not like Crow  one tiny bit. But I absolutely loved Reaper . One is a 1 star, while the other is a 4...  Let's start with the good first, Reaper . Ronan is likely to break your heart. Throughout the book we get snippets of his past, accounts of everything he had to go through before Crow and his mother find him and save him from the horrible life he was leaving. In a way, although I wasn't a fun of Crow in the first book, his love and care for Ronan had made me like him a little better. Ronan is not quiet, moody, and broody by choice. It is a consequence of all the things he has been through, the things I mentioned above that will break your heart... He is caring and loving, but he has no idea how to put those things in action. He is, in a way, one of the mos

Cruel Prince (Royal Hearts Academy #1) by Ashley Jade

Continuing with my newest obsession, bully romance, we now have Jace. Insufferable, hateful, vengeful Jace. Blurb: I never thought I'd step foot in Royal Manor again. But four years later, here I am... back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy. And forced to face Jace Covington. My first friend. First crush. First kiss. The one I left behind. Only—he isn't the same boy I gave my heart to. This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous. And he's determined to make my life a living hell. Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants. They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I'd rather eat dirt. If Jace Covington wants me gone...he'll have to try harder. Because I've never been the kind of girl to play by the rules. Jace is cruel. Not as cruel as some of the other bully romances I've been reading lately, but he is definitely not a nice guy. Burnt by his past, still hurting from everything that happened
