try in the end and actually liked itthan the first book in the series I do think that this is a series that needs to be read in order This book picks up shortly after the events of the first book and is really a continuing story I am very glad that I made the decision to give this book a chance.I love the world that this story is set in It is like the world we live in but with a few extra features available to certain people In other words, most people don t see the things that Ivy and Adrian see and I like the idea of the something extra In some cases, people really just don t want to believe what they are seeing It was rather exciting to go with Ivy and Adrian to all of the realms and deal with so many different issues.Ivy and Adrian s relationship takes some big steps in this book I do really like them as a couple and was happy to see things progress for them At the start of the book, Ivy did drive me a bit nuts by being a tad dramatic I understood why she was upset but maybe she could have found out why things happened the way they did It just seemed to slow the story down at times.There were some pretty interesting developments in the overall story I really didn t expect the artifacts to work for Ivy quite the way that they did and I found it to be really creative They spend a lot of this story looking for the second artifact which is a staff We learn a lot about Adrian s history as they search through different areas.I did enjoy the narration of this audiobook Tavia Gilbert does a really good job with the character voices which helped to bring the story to life I thought that she really added a lot of emotion to her delivery which made everything a bitexciting I thought that her voice was very pleasant and I found myself listening to the book for hours at a time.I would recommend this book to others I can t say that I like this series as much as the Night Huntress series but it is quite entertaining In the end, I found it to be quite enjoyable and am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.Initial ThoughtsI liked this book better than the first in the series I thought that the narration was well done and very easy to listen to There were a few times that I felt like things dragged a bit but overall it was well done.Source Library via Overdrive THE SWEETEST BURN is the highly anticipated second book in the Broken Destiny series by

wondering what happened to this series and if there was ever going to be a sequel When I realized that we were finally going to get it, I jumped at the chance at reading it.Now I would it s important to read this series in order Or, if you re like me, to take the time to reread the first book again before jumping into this one While Frost does do some recap in the beginning of this book, I really think it s important to refresh yourself because of the relationship aspect of this book The worldbuilding is complex and unique but actually fairly simple to pick up and understand I think the real thing readers need to focus on is the relationship between Ivy and Adrian In the last book, a big betrayal occurs and therefore, in this book, we are looking at a second chance I think if you jumped into this book without reading or refreshing yourself then you d miss that emotional impact to connect with Ivy s character.The writing in this book is fairly simple I remember when the first book debuted, it was marketed as a New Adult Paranormal Romance I do still kind of get that feeling from it, but it s also clear that the author has tried to make it less New Adult andPNR and Urban Fantasy in style I m not sure how I feel about this because it does make it seem inconsistent Even the new covers reflect aAdult style However if you are a PNR fan, the sexiness is amped up and the tension between Ivy and Adrian becomespronounce.The book is on the shorter side and I did feel like everything kind of happened really quickly The action scenes are fast, which I normally don t mind, but I didn t think there were enough moments of pause to really maintain a good balance That being said, you can easily finish this book in one sitting.The epilogue didn t hit as hard as I imagined it would be But it does create some questions that I m sure will be addressed in the next book I look forward to seeing what Frost has in store for readers next Originally posted at Booklovers For LifeIt s

to read The Sweetest Burn, I was afraid I just wouldn t be able to get into the story because it d been so long since I was immersed in the Broken Destiny world Thankfully, this didn t happen as soon as I opened up the first page of this long awaited sequel, I was sucked back into this new ish world Jeaniene Frost created It was almost as if I didn t have to wait three years to read this, which impressed me immensely If you were a fan of The Beautiful Ashes and have been waiting anxiously to continue the series, wait noIvy and Adrian are back and even better than they were before.As the last Davidian, Ivy is the only person capable of wielding the three artifacts that hold the power to destroy demons and save humanity Adrian is fated to be her enemy and downfall, but somehow fate got a little twisted and these two fell in love with each other At the end of the first book, after finding the first artifact, Adrian had left Ivy for her own good but now he s back and ready to help Ivy again on her journey to finding the second and third artifacts, all the while proving his love and devotion to her I didn t want to know you, like you, need you, or most of all, love you, but I did I still do You are my destiny, Ivy, just not how everyone predicted Now, when I think of the future, I think of spending it with you Much of the first book felt like it was a set up for the rest of the series It had potential and that potential was finally realized in The Sweetest Burn I have to say I enjoyed this sequel so muchthan the first book, mainly because of how muchI liked the characters I felt like we get to know Ivy and Adrian a lot better, after all the trials and tribulations they overcome and still have waiting for them in the future.This book was pretty fast paced and easy to read The action was intense and exciting, but it was definitely the romance that had me hooked onto the pages I loved how determined Adrian was to win Ivy s heart he s so lovable, charming, and protective Ivy herself is a great heroine a little too self sacrificing, but I admired her strength and how she took to learning her newfound Davidian powers.I m SO excited to see how this series will end There s a little twist at the end of The Sweetest Burn that I m sure will stir up a lot of trouble in the next and final book of this trilogy, and I can t wait to see how it goes I m also so glad we don t have to wait for another few years for the last book it s only a few months away in November Thanks to the publisher for generously providing me an ARC to review Quotes are taken from the ARC and are subject to change in the final version Ebook Hardcover Paperback this review Subscribe to Booklovers For Life for I read the first book in this series, but when I picked up this second installment in the Broken Destiny trilogy, I could not remember a single thing that happened That s what happens when a publisher takes a three years pause between books Even as I continued to read here, very few of the details came back to me The good news is, Jeanine Frost does such a great job of filling in the blanks, even a brand new reader could jump into this book and understand what s going on.The biggest things yo I read the first book in this series, but when I picked up this second installment in the Broken Destiny trilogy, I could not remember a single thing that happened That s what happens when a publisher takes a three years pause between books Even as I continued to read here, very few of the details came back to me The good news is, Jeanine Frost does such a great job of filling in the blanks, even a brand new reader could jump into this book and understand what s going on.The biggest things you need to know are as follows Ivy and Adrian are destined for tragedy She is the last Davidian He s the last in their long line of betrayers And betray her he did in book 1 Now he wants to make amends The two of them are in love, but Ivy doesn t trust him not to fulfill his destiny again Meanwhile, Adrian will do anything to win her back.Just as Ivy had to recover a lost holy artifact in The Beautiful Ashes, so too does she have to do it here Now she is searching for the staff of Moses to seal the growing rifts between our world and the demonic one And to do it, she takes an around the world road trip with Adrian, his BFF, her sister, and her pet gargoyle.I m pretty sure this series was marketed as New Adult, and I guess it is, in that the heroine is only 21 and a virgin at the beginning of the book She s also a bit immature as she faces some nearly impossible circumstances Like how she deals with and thinks about the angel Zach Or her actions that seem impetuous But youth aside, she s an ok heroine She tries to do the right thing, and it s hard to fault her for falling for Adrian when he s just so delicious.The book moves fast and it s easy reading The world building is solid and the action sequences are entertaining and plentiful As for the romance, it definitely moves to the next level here It actually takes a turbo jump Which primes the story perfectly for the ending It s not surprising, because destiny is what it is But it made sense and it was in keeping with everything we knew about the characters.I will definitely read book 3 to see how it all ends Fortunately, we won t have to wait that long I m looking forward toof Frost s super sexy scenes and good one liners Favorite quote I found the staff And it is mighty You re damn right it is Rating BARC provided by publisher Originally posted at SmexyBooks Sweetest Burn is the 2nd

Originally posted at SmexyBooks Sweetest Burn is the 2nd installment in Jeaniene Frost s New Adult fantasy series Broken Destiny Book one Beautiful Ashes introduced us to a multi dimensional world filled with demons and angels preparing for war and the one person who can save us Destiny and the Bible claims that Ivy, the last Davidian, is the only hope humans have to beat back the demons who are readying to inherit the world She meets and falls in love with a half demon prince who comes to help her train for what s coming only to reveal at the end that he is the last Judian and like the original Judas, it is his destiny to betray her At the end of book one, Ivy commands Adrian to leave her and he does, leaving us to wonder what now The Sweetest Burn opens with Ivy angry that Adrian left her and stayed away with no communication or begging to be with her He does come back though, declaring his love for her and determined to prove he will defy their destiny and not betray her Ivy is on the fence but willing to give him the benefit of the doubt Zach, their middle man to heaven, alerts them to the second hallowed artifact and sets them on their course They need to find the second artifact before the demons do as it is the one item that can stop the walls between the demon and human realms from collapsing.Frost s voice definitely seems louder andsettled in this installment I found the pacing smoother and the characterization stronger though the story still dragged in places We seem to still dealing with the same issues from book one though we do getexplanations this time around Ivy and Adrian make peace and decide to deal with their attraction and everything else later as they begin their journey to find the second hallowed relic the staff of Moses This leads them on a worldwide adventure that offers readersinsight into the reasons behind the war and those that are a part of it The story remains relatively laid back until the last quarter when the action, suspense, and intrigue explodes.Ivy and Adrian continue to evolve, developing individually and as a couple Ivy remains her tough, courageous, and snarky self though she whinesand makes some questionable decisions in here What bothered me about Ivy in here is she instantly realizes the things she is doing are wrong and then a few chapters later does it again I did appreciate that she continues to question everything But why she hasn t sat down and brushed up on her bible studies Frost really opens up Adrianin here and I feel readers definitely get to know him better I like his commitment to Ivy and their relationship though he still isn t being 100% honest with Ivy The use of a dual POV certainly helps Book one feltlike Ivy s book while this one is definitely a joint venture.Chemistry wise, the passion and attraction between Ivy and Adrian isintense and focused this go around though the soulmate destiny issue remains iffy for me On one hand, it allows Frost to gloss over the development of the romance sort of a cheater in my opinion but on the other hand, it does give us a weighted romantic conflict that works well in here As it is right now, the physical attraction is still the strongest feature of this romance Also, the story still has a distinct YA sound and feel to it even with the racy scenes Its disconcerting at times.Frost continues to expand her character base, adding personality and essentially humanizing those considered not human We finally learn what is the motivation Zach s and Demetrius s actions and it s definitely going to make thingsinteresting in the end I am enjoying the religious direction Frost takes here and in the overall premise though, as this series is heavily character driven, we only learn what the protagonists tell us which leaves you in the dark at times Free will remains an important feature that the book uses to answer or avoid answering certain questions and situations.Once again, there is a small cliffhanger at the end but nothing too major While I did find this installmentstable and developed then book one, I still wasn t as engaged as I would have liked to have been All in all this is a quick read that basically delivers what it promises without much fanfare or expectations on my part Grade C The Sweetest Burn was a long time coming It took me awhile to bring the happenings of Beautiful Ashes into play since it was 3 years ago this series debuted but I feel that THE SWEETEST BURN can stand on its own The Sweetest Burn leaves off a few months after The Beautiful Ashes ended Ivy, her sister and a gargoyle disguised as a seagull are all living in Florida near the beach Ivy is wondering what the heck has happened to Adrian, since he s just disappeared from her life Ivy is fuming mad The Sweetest Burn was a long time coming It took me awhile to bring the happenings of Beautiful Ashes into play since it was 3 years ago this series debuted but I feel that THE SWEETEST BURN can stand on its own The Sweetest Burn leaves off a few months after The Beautiful Ashes ended Ivy, her sister and a gargoyle disguised as a seagull are all living in Florida near the beach Ivy is wondering what the heck has happened to Adrian, since he s just disappeared from her life Ivy is fuming mad about Adrian s disappearance only to find herself suddenly reunited with Adrian, with a little help from Zach.Zach has a mission for Ivy, Adrian and the gang, find the next holy item of power before the demons.I really enjoyed most of the storytelling, although a large portion of the book seemed to have Adrian s and Ivy s discussing their predisposed destiny which inevitably made the epilogue predictable and not a surprise.Frost writes snarky, fun characters adds a pretty steady action extreme plot then twists an interesting blending of religious beliefs to formulate a colorful and vivid clash between good and evil and all the gray areas in between My rating 4 starsWritten by

former happenings but it wasn t too long before everything fell into place This story is fast paced and action packed Even so, I found it difficult to find significant investment in this story, the characters, and the romance in general This may be because of the three years in between books or it may be that I m just not digging the seriesI m not sure Regardless, I m committing to onebook because Ms Frost is amazing If you love this author as I do, or you enjoy urban fantasy with new adult aged characters, give this series a shot.My favorite quoteYour mind should rule your
