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.

The Book Hater's Book Club by Gretchen Anthony

The Book Hater's Book Club  at first appears to be about a struggling bookstore and its imminent sale. Elliot, the co-owner of Over the Rainbow Bookstore, started  The Book Hater's Book Club , a newsletter of reading recommendations for the self-proclaimed non-readers of the world, because he believed there was a book out there for everyone. Something I wholeheartedly agree with! For years he and Irma have kept the store going and always had a recommendation in hand. When you finish this book, you will have yet another list of books to read.  However, this book is about more than just books and a struggling bookstore. It is also about grief, the price of secrets, and a little more grief.  You see, Elliot is gone, and his grief-ridden business partner has agreed to sell the store to developers. Problem is, she didn't tell that to anyone until the deal was almost done. Which is making her daughters ask questions. Why is she selling? Is it grief alone? Is there something else

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 fiancĂ© 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

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
