This book was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
Every single thing that Jennifer L. Armentrout writes, I absolutely love. This of course did not change with this amazing NA story.
Tess is a strong heroine. She has just been through a horrible time after being injured. She is not allowed to dance, which I can imagine is like losing a part of her soul. That is until Jase comes along… Tess has always held a torch for him, despite him being her brother's best friend.
Jase is a great guy. His secret was quite shocking to me and I felt so much for him. He is gorgeous and funny and had a couple cute quirks that made him wonderful. I understood his reluctance to be in a relationship. I totally couldn’t blame him. And I definitely loved when he finally manned up!
The plot was most definitely different than a normal new adult plot and I loved it. As per JLA standards, this book was sexy, sexy, sexy. I had to fan myself multiple times. But what else could I expect from the queen of steam?
I loved seeing Cam, as a protective big brother, and Avery, and I can’t wait for Calla’s book!
Favorite Swoon-worthy Quote: Jase lowered his head and his mouth was on mine before I even realized what was happening. My brain was way behind what was going on, but he kissed me – he was kissing me. His lips were on mine, and there was nothing soft and sweet about this kiss. I was branded in seconds.
