TLC Book Tours Book Review: The Sweetest Burn

About The Sweetest Burn

  • Series: A Broken Destiny Novel (Book 2)
  • Mass Market Paperback: 352 pages
  • Publisher: HQN Books (June 27, 2017)
The breathtaking second novel in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Broken Destiny series finds Ivy and Adrian rekindling their alliance—and passion—as the struggle for the fate of the world begins…
Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous—and dangerously sexy—Adrian. Ivy isn’t sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between the demon and human realms, or resisting Adrian, who’s decided that come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.
At first, Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he’s vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny—and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them—will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined…
 “Frost scores another win with the mesmerizing second Broken Destiny supernatural contemporary… The novel thrums with energy, its pacing breakneck from the very start, and piles on the sexual tension. Frost provides a much-needed inventive boost to the tired angel/demon subset of supernatural fantasy.” –Publishers Weekly

Review: OK, so I started a trilogy on book 2, shoot me. I haven't read much paranormal/supernatural romance in ages, so this was really taking me out of my comfort zone, but I'm really glad that I took the chance on this one. Though I really should have gone back and read the first book, cos well, really you should read them in order. (Yeah, I'm a schmuck)

Ivy is a kick-butt heroine. (The kind that you don't really see that often) She has a past relationship with Adrian, and that's where you have the problem when you didn't read the first book.

There's a lot of action in this book and Jeaniene Frost has a great writing style. I'm going to read the first book and come back to this one and reread (and update this review) because I don't think I can give this book a review that it truly deserves without having read the first book.

I will say if urban fantasy/paranormal is your thing, this is a great book.

Rating: 4 flowers
