When heartbreaking secrets from the past are revealed, the fragile trust and love they have built together is put in jeopardy.. Lucky and Zane are left to decide if they can overcome the new painful revelations that are threatening to break both of their hearts so that they can focus on their future together.

My Thoughts:

My mind is still reeling after finishing The Last Husband.

I am kinda sorta speechless right now, but wow. I can't believe what I just read. On a side note I knew what was going to happen because I accidentally read a spoiler on JS's Facebook. But it's okay I was still somewhat shocked and surprised!

Lucky and Zane are a great couple. I really enjoyed being able to read from both of their POVs. For once I actually enjoyed the POV being told from the guy side. Zane is a man of mystery and even though we find out why he acts the way he does, I just loved being able to read into his mind. You saw how much he really loves Lucky even though he still has struggles and secrets.

So many things I want to say but I am afraid I would spoil so much. I leave you with this, The Last Husband is a must read!

Would I recommend the book? Um hell yes!
It's romantic,funny, and somewhat mysterious. I loved the first book but the second book might have taken first place.

**i was given an arc copy in exchange for an honest review from the author.**

Review: Winter Fire by Lauren Dubay

Goodreads Blurb--
"I should have seen Bren for what he was right away." A brooding, powerful god, hiding out with his rebel friends in the snowy mountains of Pennsylvania.

"Loki stood before the flames in a black leather jacket and tattered jeans…the son of the grim reaper." A captivating master of danger who threatens their secret.

When Jenna becomes the center of a clash between Asgard's most powerful expatriates, she will have to choose between what she wants most in the world, and the world itself.

After her parent’s divorce, Jenna and her mother find shelter in the frozen world of Yew Dales Resort, where Jenna meets Bren Bergan, a mysterious snowboarder who, while proving elusive, seems to show up at all the wrong times. Intrigued, and anxious to escape the gloom of her own life, Jenna begins to notice the strangeness that surrounds Bren. Hills rise and fall beneath his board, trees sway aside as he passes, and time itself seems to shrink and stretch at his silent command. As she searches for answers, Jenna learns that Bren is an expatriate Norse god who has escaped his home in Asgard in order to break a cycle of destruction that threatens both of their worlds. When Loki, hypnotic master of discord, arrives from Asgard seeking to bring Bren home, he discovers Jenna as well, and she becomes the center of a struggle which will determine all of their fates.

My Thoughts:

I was given a review copy from the author for an honest review.

I was excited to read about Norse gods and snowboarding. I mean how cool is that?!

The story starts off with our main character, Jenna, and her mother when they move into a hotel where her mother is takes on the job as a manager. There she sees the mysterious Bren and his family, whom everyone tells her is weird. Little do they know...

I guess I will start with what I did like about the book. I like the characters, they were all fun and easy to relate to. Especially Jenna. She seemed so calm and wise for her age. Bren was awesome as well! Not to mention I thought he was good looking:)

The snowboarding was interesting to read about since I know nothing of the sport. It seems hard but I still would love to try it out.

Now is the part where I talk about what I disliked. I found the story slow paced and repetitive. There were times when I wanted to skip parts but I kept on reading. The action at the end of the book made up for what I felt lacked in the middle.

All in all I thought it was a cute read and it was definitely different from what I am used to reading.

The second book Hail Storm comes out soon.
