You can't escape the past. You can try to forget but it never truly leaves you. It is a part of who are you are; it has shaped you, it will shape your future. It is the shadow behind you. You can't outrun it, you can't hide from it or deny it - the past will always exist. Who you once were is still a part of who you are today. This, I now understand.Anna's Review:
My name is Gracelynn Stevenson. I tried to destroy The Lost Magic. I tried to erase the past. I tried to make things go back to the way that they once were. I failed. And now all the happiness I thought I had found, has been lost to the shadows...
Okay, so I have to say that I have really enjoyed this series and if you haven't read them... you are missing out. I have been hooked on this series since book 1. Book 3 really takes you for a ride. I love it.
Gracelynn and Sebastian have survived the explosion but it comes at a price... They are missing critical pieces to their memories. For example, they don't know who they really are. Davis sure does have a thing for losing memories in this series but that's okay because it just makes it more epic.
Grace and Sebastian find themselves back living with the Jensons but they bring along a new friend with them. David was there during the explosion and he seems to have holes in his memory too.
Even with the memory loss, Grace and Sebastian will go on planning their wedding. Planning a wedding seems to be chaotic but what makes matters worse is that Grace starts to remember more and Sebastian doesn't want anything to do with remembering. It feels like they pulling away from each. Grace knows that something is going on when you dreams of a person telling her to follow her destiny and guide some people with natural power like hers. Grace refuses.
To make matters worse, Sebastian disappears. Now, Grace along with David and this new group of people must work together to find Sebastian before it's too late.
Grace and her group travel to an island where they attempt to watch another powerful group who use their power for evil. This is when Grace meets Aed, a man who is almost as powerful as her. Who is Aed and where did he come from? Find out in the book :)
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and series. I definitely recommend it for everyone.

Beauty from Pain by Georgia CatesGoodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble
They agreed on three months...but their love knew no boundaries.Review:
Jack McLachlan is a winemaking magnate and easily one of Australia’s most eligible bachelors. His success and wealth make him no stranger to the complications of romantic relationships and that’s why he goes to extreme measures to avoid the hassle. He prefers simplicity in the form of a beautiful female companion with no strings attached. He arranges relationships like business deals and they’re always the same. No long term relationships. No real names.
It’s his game and his rules. He’s content to play as usual, but when Laurelyn Prescott enters his life, his strategy must change because this player is like none he's ever encountered. His world is turned on its head after he begins a three month affair with the beautiful American musician. Nothing goes according to plan and as he breaks more and more of his own rules for her, she’s exceptionally close to becoming something he never thought possible. His ultimate game changer.
Fairytales aren’t real…yeah…that’s exactly what Bianca thought. She was wrong.
For generations, the Frost family has run the Museum of Magical and Rare Artifacts, handing down guardianship from mother to daughter, always keeping their secrets to “family only.”
Gathered within museum’s walls is a collection dedicated to the Grimm fairy tales and to the rare items the family has acquired: Cinderella’s glass slipper, Snow White’s poisoned apple, the evil queen’s magic mirror, Sleeping Beauty’s enchanted spinning wheel…
Seventeen-year-old Bianca Frost wants none of it, dreaming instead of a career in art or photography or…well, anything except working in the family’s museum. She knows the items in the glass display cases are fakes because, of course, magic doesn’t really exist.
She’s about to find out how wrong she is.

Just weeks before graduating from high school, Grace is running for her life with her magical and mysterious boyfriend, Sebastian, by her side. An ancient magic has been awakened inside of Grace that is powerful, frightening and barely within her control. The Others, who possess their own dangerous magic, are hunting them, and their only hope is for Grace to learn how to harness her incredible powers to stop them. The answers they seek are hidden within a life lived thousands of years ago, shrouded in mystery, magic and deceit. When their past catches up to them, Grace and Sebastian are faced with a truth that shakes the foundation of their relationship, their lives and everything they thought they knew. It is up to Grace to learn to control the Lost Magic, to right the wrongs that have been done, and to discover once and for all, who she really is.
I was so excited to start Silver Dew. It is the second novel in the Lost Magic series by Davis. I have to say I really enjoyed the first book but I think that this one is better. I say that because this one kind of explains more about the story but Davis adds a little more mystery to tease the reader with. Silver Dew also has more action in it and it shows how much stronger Gracelynn has grown as mind and body.
Shattered Edge by A.M. HargroveGoodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Their trial relationship was meant to last six months, but things didn’t quite work out the way they planned...
Justin Middleton, who has left a string of broken hearts across the state of South Carolina, has only one thing on his mind, and that’s winning Terri Mitchell’s heart in six months. That’s all the time she’s given him...six short months. If he can’t do it by then, they’ll go their separate ways.
Terri Mitchell knows she’s lost her mind when she even suggested this harebrained scheme. She finally thinks her heart is on the mend from her past encounter with Justin. However, when he shows up at her house late one night looking deliciously sexy and irresistible, her iron will to fight him vanishes and the words tumble from her lips before she’s barely aware of what she’s done.
Within weeks, both of them find themselves passionately involved, but when Terri’s brother, Preston, shows up, mysterious things begin to happen, turning their blissful world into something dark and dangerous.
Disaster strikes for Terri Mitchell and Justin Middleton near the end of the Edge of Disaster before they even got a chance to try to have the love they deserve. Shattered Edge is the story of Justin and Terri's attempt at making their own love story.
I'm so glad AM continued this story for Justin and Terri! They just couldn't catch a break in Edge of Disaster and you couldn't help but root for them. The chemistry between them has always been strong but Oh my goodness in Shattered Edge you can cut the passion in the room with a knife. The time they were apart between the two books only made their connection stronger and you just couldn't help telling the characters to just go for it and that they deserved each others love.
Solid 4.5 Stars on this one! I'm definitely between ratings because the fact that I couldn't put this book down makes me want to give it 5, but a few times I wanted the characters to get out of bed some for a little expansion on the plot so I just settled with 4.5!
Anyway back to those characters not being able to get out of bed...this book was HOT SEXY STEAMY. Sometimes I just wanted to be like Oh my gawd please come get into my bed! Can I please get a Middleton brother of my very own?! AM did you hear that? Okay just checking.
BIG KABOOOM close to the end. Like seriously didn't see that one coming at all. I kinda had a feeling things were going too smoothly for too long, but I didn't think there would be such a game changer so close to the end! I can't even begin to describe this one to you so I guess you got to read it to find out!
If HOT STEAMY and some sweaty romance is your kind of book, then you will love it!
and now for a little excerpt to give you a little taste of Justin and Terri...
So what do you think?! Excited about reading Shattered Edge? Have you read it and have any thoughts?

Hand to hand combat training: CheckCardio and strength training: CheckDaemon hunting: CheckAnomaly: CheckCheck, check, check, check...That's all my life is. There's nothing ordinary about me. I'm "special." I know this because I'm reminded of it every stinking day. I can kick a Daemon's ass with both hands tied behind my back. I can run up a mountain without breaking a sweat. Know what I can't do? Get guys to notice me, or hang out with friends like normal people do. I can't just be ordinary because I have an Arch Angel for a mentor who is always breathing down my neck, and a family of angelic Guides and Protectors who scrutinize every little thing I do. Just for a day I want a life where I'm no longer some anomaly, where I don't have to feel like a lab rat.And then I met Emrys. Okay, so my mentor and family hate him, but probably for good reason. After-all, he is a Soul Trader, and they aren't the most trust worthy beings. But, he is sooo hot with his green eyes, leather jacket and the sexiest tattoo you've ever seen running down his back. And-he doesn't treat me like a project.I've got myself in quite a little quandary here. Choosing between my responsibilities and the Trader that holds my heart is something I didn't sign up for. Torn between two different worlds, I must now decide who to trust and who to walk away from. What's a girl to do? See what I mean? I am an anomaly. I am Jordyn.
I was so excited when Tiffany announced that she was writing Jordyn. I missed her Saving Angels Series and was glad when she was bringing it back with a spin-off. With all this excitement brought high expectations and Jordyn was in no way a disappointment. I loved it!
Jordyn is definitely one of my favorite heroines ever. She's extremely snarky and sarcastic. Some of the things she said had me laughing out loud at my kindle. Her existence is extremely hard and confusing. She's the only one of her kind and can't remember anything past a few months ago. All she knows is her parents are dead and her Aunt Krista and Uncle Mark are now her guardians. Despite all that she pushes through and trains with Haniel and literally kicks-butt.
Enters Emrys *sigh* I couldn't help but love him even though we weren't suppose to because he is a Soul Trader. Jordyn couldn't help herself either and couldn't help being drawn to him. He's a great character because from the beginning he throws Jordyn's snarkiness right back at her with his innuendos and sarcastic comments. I love the bantering between them.
Tiffany brings us back all the characters we fell in love with in the Saving Angles Series. Krista and Mark are now the guardians of Jordyn and I thought it was really neat to see them in this new light of responsibility. Lynn shares many of the quirks of Jordyn and they become very close friends. All the guides and protectors are still kicking butt (but Jorndyn can now kick butt better). AND Haniel still has a stick up his butt.

And then there are the two power-hungry dark spirits who believe Paige can find King Solomon’s magical ring for them, because when her father was alive, he was close to finding it. If Paige doesn’t comply with their demands, they’ll kill her.
Paige is forced to dig deep into her father’s past and unearths shocking secrets about him and his bloodline. With the past and present colliding, Paige is only sure about two things in her life: she needs to outwit the dark spirits to stay alive, and she’s completely and helplessly in love with Nathan.
