Book Review: The Prophecy (Titan #4) by: Jennifer L. Armentrout

Release Date: March 20, 2018
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"History is on repeat…

Seth never thought he’d have a future. But now he’s on the brink of having it all with Josie: A tomorrow. A family. A forever. And all that's standing between him and that forever is the Titans. If he helps Josie entomb them -- without killing them, a nearly impossible task for him -- everything he could ever want will be in reach. But he soon realizes that as a god, every little choice he makes can reshape the world for the better… or worse. And in meddling with the Titans, Seth may have just set into motion catastrophic consequences that will force the Olympians to enter the mortal realm and reshape the delicate balance of power that keeps the world from total collapse.

A price must be paid…

Entombing the Titans is Josie’s top priority. After all, it was what she was born to do. But the plans her father put into play to help her are no longer an option, and the odds she and Seth face in forging their own path are grim. The escalating violence between halfs and pures only increases the danger closing in on them and their friends. Josie knows their chances of succeeding in their task are slim at best -- and if they fail, they might lose everything. But she also knows she's not fighting just for herself -- she's fighting for the man she loves, for their future, for the world. Together with the Army of Awesome, Josie and Seth will face the unthinkable. And to win this war, the ultimate sacrifice must be made.

For the end is here and the Prophecy will be fulfilled…."

My Thoughts:

Look it is no secret that I love pretty much everything from Jennifer L. Armentrout, but I will always hold a special place in my heart for her Covenant and Titan series, so I was really looking forward to this book. I have to say that this book delivered. I didn’t know how all of the crazy was going to get solved but somehow this book pulled everything together in ways I never expected the story to go.

I’ll admit that going into this series I was never sure if Seth would be able to fully win me over, but he really did. He has come such a long way and has really come to terms with everything he did and tried his best to make amends. At the end of the day he is a good guy who is trying to do the right thing and keep those he loves and cares about safe. At the same time though he is still the same Seth. He still has that witty banter and smart ass mouth and still tends to lose his shirt. I loved that Seth was able to grow as a character while still remaining himself in a lot of ways. Also have to talk about Josie because I love her so much. She is so so strong and does not know how to back down. She is always willing to do what is right and what needs to be done, even when it terrifies her. She too has grown so much over the course of this series. She got thrown into this new world and she adapted to it so well.

Along with Josie and Seth this book has such wonderful secondary characters. Of course I love Alex and Aiden and seeing them again is fantastic. Those two will always hold a special place in my heart and seeing them together and strong just makes me incredibly happy. Deacon is forever one of my all-time favorite characters. He somehow manages to steal every scene he is in and I love that. He brings some much needed laughter and lightness to some very bleak situations. And seeing Deacon with Luke makes me so happy.

The plot to The Prophecy was like a punch to the gut. There are a lot of ups and downs and it’s hard to see how everyone is going to make it out alive. This book broke me and I’m not ashamed to say I sobbed. The book moved at a great pace and it really kept me turning pages. And of course the romance between Josie and Seth was both sweet and sexy.

The Prophecy was a great conclusion to the Titan series and I am so sad to say goodbye to these characters. This series will always hold a special place in my heart.

On My Shelf: Crossing The Line by: Katie McGarry

On My Shelf is a feature I started here on the blog and I'm sure there are a ton of similar ones out there, but basically I just wanted to start spotlighting some of the MANY backlist titles I have accumulated on my shelf and kindle. The idea is to spotlight an older book I have on my massive TBR. I also thought it would be a fun way to discuss these books with my fellow bloggers, get some of your thoughts and figure out which ones I need to read ASAP and which ones can wait a bit more. And if you want to join in too, I would love to see what is on your shelf! Just leave me a link in the comments.

I love Katie Mcgarry and I bought this novella right when it released, but then I somehow never got around to it. I really need to circle back and read this one because McGarry never ever lets me down.

So tell me. Have you read it? Did you love it? Hate it? Was it meh?

Mini Review: On Hart's Boardwalk (On Dublin Street #6.7, Hart's Boardwalk #2.5) by: Samantha Young

Release Date: March 20, 2018
from Intermix
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"One of New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young’s most beloved couples returns for the
first time in a brand new novella set ten years after her blockbuster bestseller Before Jamaica Lane…

Nate and Liv have a great life together but they miss the spontaneity and freedom they enjoyed early on in their romance. Careers and their children have inevitably kept them busy, so when Nate discovers Liv is feeling disconnected from him, he plans an anniversary trip to the idyllic seaside town of Hartwell, Delaware. There he hopes they will have the opportunity they’ve been craving—a chance to reinvent themselves and fall in love all over again.

With each new day comes a new adventure, from wedding crashing at the five-star boardwalk hotel to pretending they are two strangers having a chance encounter at the boardwalk bar. In the midst of this daring, sexually charged game of romantic rediscovery, Nate and Liv discover the only constant they need is each other."

My Thoughts:

This is forever my favorite series from Samantha Young and it was so wonderful to catch up with Nate and Liv again. And even better that we got to do so in the lovely setting of Hartwell, Delaware. These two are still as fun as ever and it was nice to briefly catch up with the rest of the gang. I love this series because it always packs a punch and delivers a great romance and this novella did the same. It was a quick read, but it never felt as if it was too quick or rushed, it delivered a full story full of heartbreak and romance in a small package. Nate and Liv have come a long way from the couple we first met, but they are still the same in so many ways. Their chemistry is off the charts and I just love them both oh so much. And I will forever love their “would you rathers?”. It was so cute seeing them with their daughters and how they’ve grown and how in love they still are. And even though they hit a rough patch it was so great to see how they worked through it all. Relationship goals for reals. If you’re a fan of this series this is not a novella to miss.

Recent Reads: Magic and Angels and Romance

Recent Reads is feature here on the blog. The point is to feature books I've read recently in quick recap fashion with fun info-graphics. The info-graphics came from the Bookout app, which is a great app for bloggers. You can log quotes and thoughts and track your reading stats (and no I'm not paid for this, I just really like this app). Recently I dove into worlds of magic, angels, and romance.
