Cass has lived on Camp Home which is an island for the past 7 years with Solomon. She and her brother Jordi are the only ones left of their family. A guy comes to the island , and he is taken prisoner.
Cass and the boy break out and go look for her brother who was taken. She also learns more about what happened after the incident with the Fearless. The boy --Myo has his sister and he isn't what he seems. Things are happening on the island with Sol & he is questioning things too. The Fearless reminded me of zombies.

I struggled to finish this book . Many things I thought would happen did. Cass did find love and the guy who did love her  had some issues. Now when I think of the word Fearless ..I will think of Zombies. I really wanted to stop reading this book , but a part of me wanted to see how this was going to play out.

Bounce Cover Reveal

Image Map

Following in the bestselling tradition of Molly McAdams and J. Lynn, this final chapter in the fun and steamy New Adult trilogy by Noelle August (authors Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger) features two aspiring musicians who must choose between their careers…and their sizzling attraction for each other.

Playing the occasional club gig just isn’t cutting it for twenty-two-year-old cellist Skyler Canby, who’s trying to support herself and her mother back home in Kentucky. Persuaded by her best friend Beth to accompany her on an audition for the first feature film launched by Blackwood Entertainment, she figures why not? Beth’s a shoe-in for the lead, but maybe Skyler’s newly dyed pink hair will help her stand out enough to score a small speaking part.

Never in her wildest dreams does Skyler imagine she’ll land the lead role or that she’ll have her shoes knocked off her feet by the kiss her audition partner, Grey Blackwood, plants on her—a kiss that feels very real and not at all “acted. ”

After throwing a party that causes thousands of dollars of damage to his older brother’s home, reckless musician Grey Blackwood gets roped into working off his debt on the set of his CEO brother’s newest project. Grey spends his days fetching coffee and doing odd jobs around the studio, but he lives for nights when he performs with his band. He knows if he can stay focused, success as a singer is just around the corner. But that’s tough with a distracting pink-haired girl occupying his every waking thought.

Skyler and Grey have every reason to resist each other. But, like a song neither of them can get out of their minds, they have no choice but to go where the music takes them.

I adore this series and I can't wait to read it . I have been picky about my new adult series but this one has been an auto read for me. Be sure to order and read this book when it comes out.

2nd in series
March 10

Seraphina is on a mission a find others like her . She is also on the Queen's request on this journey.  She does meet and find others like herself. We also find more about her mind garden and those that were in it. Her half sister Jammoula  is taking control of others, and using it to her advantage. Kriggs and Seraphina do have some romance but those felt like stolen moments.

Seraphina does grow along this journey and makes more friends. She also learns more about the Saints.

This book was tough to get back into after so long. I also found the romance lacking , but the world building was amazing. I loved that there were so many characters that were half dragons. I always enjoy Ooma and Aldo . I didn't like the ending but I had some questions about it .

Book Review = B
