Hardest Fall (Dominion, #2) by Juliette Cross [arc review]

Congratulations Juliette Cross on another phenomenal book! Needless to say it, I loved it.

The Blurb:

The tattooed demoness, Bone, doesn’t like anything except the magical weapons she makes. But she has hidden talents few know about. When I was brought to her near death, she used her Seraph song to manipulate flesh and bone to save me. But she wasn’t happy about it. 


Now I must return the favor. Even though she refuses to take sides in the apocalypse, there’s one job she’s not willing to do for the demon prince Rook. If she doesn’t, her head will end up on a spike. Of course, there’s a good chance we’re all going to die anyway, but I will do anything to protect this fierce woman—and not just because she saved me.



So now we’re both off to kill a demon—or three—and possibly save the world. 


5 Stars


I really really love the world Juliette created. It's original, it's exciting, it's enthralling... I was captivated by the story and its setting from beginning to end. 

Bone was a fabulous character. I already liked her in Darkest Heart and she did not disappoint here. I never thought she truly was indifferent to the war, she was too good of a friend to Dom for that. So it was nice getting to know her better, learn her story, and watch her grow into the person she used to be and somewhere inside still is. That fighting spirit never went away, it just... took a little nap ;) And let me just tell you guys, the 'thing' she does towards the end to one of the demon princes was spectacular. That girl has got some moves! 

Xander has got swagger. Most of you ladies are gonna fall for him and fall hard. And to add to that he also has a good heart. He is kind, sweet, funny, loyal... it is impossible not to love him.

I gotta say though that my favorite part was not the new couple but rather all the wonderful moments Dom and Anya graced the page. It made me miss them so very much :) 
That is not to say Bone and Xander weren't great though. They were actually phenomenal and utterly perfect for each other. But, like every reader, I have favorite tropes, and the bad boys almost always have me at 'hello'. 
Now I need a story on Uriel. That bad-ass angel already has my panties into nots. I have a very strong feeling that he is going to compete with Dom for my heart.

A Romance Catch Up!

 It has been a crazy month and I fell behind badly on my reviews! But here are some highlights for you. Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians #3) Ruby Dixon  2.75/5 Although I liked this one it is my least favorite in the series so far. The book was going well until a little over the halfway point when it just doesn't read right. She accepts leaving someone behind too easily and although up to this point the book does a good job at dealing with infertility it all of sudden throws it all out of the window. So good, I will carry on with the series, but not great. A Precious Jewel (Stapleton-Downes #2) Mary Balogh  3/5 This was different, unique. And I like that about it. I have not read any other book quite like it. She is a prostitute;  he starts of as just any other client. The story was sweet and interesting . The MC comes across  rather clueless at times,  but it is somewhat endearing. The romance is believable  and they make a very charming couple! The Gunslinger's Guide to

Radiant Sin (Dark olympus) by Katee Robert [arc review]

This is sadly, not going to be a very popular review. I adore Katee Robert. But this one just wasn't for me. It wasn't a terrible book or anything like that, it just left me wanting more and very puzzled. Every one of the books in this series follows a certain trope and/or subplot genre. Neon Gods is very much a Greek Mythology retelling;  Electric Idol  has the plus size influencer and the sweet bad boy, it is a very modern contemporary romance;  Wicked Beauty , and my favorite so far has that hunger games/dystopian vibe. Radiant Sin  is a murder mystery. The 'one house'/'one train' style that has always been so popular. Here lies problem number one for me, because I don't like murder mysteries at all. Even on my teen years when I read a lot of mystery it was never those. Problem two- there were way too many characters in that house, and they all got their time on the page making it one very confusing mess. It was very hard to follow at times. I think this

Allison's Adventures in Underland by C.M. Stunich

As much as I really enjoyed this book, I have to be honest and say that unless you, like me, are a big fun of the classic, you might not love it. It relies heavily on your knowledge of the classic. Although everything is well explained you will be missing something without it.  I'm also not sure calling this one a romance is correct. Even a dark reverse harem as it is advertised... but that I think will most definitely become the case in the second book. We are just not there yet and when I went into this one, I didn't know it was series with cliffhangers.  Allison's Adventures in Underland  is a fantastic adaptation of the classic. It is Dark, it is sexy, it has charm.  Allison watches a man with bunny ears murder her crash and runs after him. She falls down the rabbit hole in the process coming face to face with the twins. Expect in this version the twins are two very sexy man with signs hanging around their necks that say, "eat me", "drink me". I am s
