The Sweetest Burn by Jeaniene Frost….Review Blog Tour Stop

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

My Review:

The Sweetest Burn is the second book in author Jeaniene Frost’s Broken Destiny series and after reading, and loving, the first book I was so excited to dive into this second installment. Well, let me just say, it was everything I had hoped for any more.

Let me start out by saying that yes, you really should read the first book in the series.  I don’t think you’d understand a lot of what was going on with the search Ivy and Adrian are on and you certainly wouldn’t feel the depth of the connections all of these characters have made.

Speaking of the connections and the search…holy moly do things really heat up in this book! Ivy and Adrian are reunited, tumultuously at first, and head of on the search for the second on Ivy’s list of hallowed artifacts that will help her bring balance to the world and the good vs. evil fight.  The search for the new item brings Ivy and Adrian even closer when they both realize after too many close calls and brushes with death that they are truly meant to be.  I won’t ruin anything for you but let me say, they have a total swoon worthy moment that had me smiling through happy tears.

Now, of course, while all of the reuniting is going on, we are in the middle of the quest for Ivy’s next weapon.  That search brings tons of danger and more than a few surprises along the way.  Friendships are tested and some family bonds are broken while others are strengthened.  There were more than a few “no way” moments during this book as secrets were reveled and I loved it.  While I hate being to vague, I certainly don’t want to spoil this story for you so you have to trust me when I tell you that it was phenomenal.

This series is filled with characters I adore, especially Brutus, and a journey that has me glued to each page.  I cannot wait to see what happens next with Ivy, Adrian, and the gang.  I’ll be anxiously awaiting the next installment! Thank you, Ms. Frost, for another fabulous read!
