Most days, Andrea doesn’t know whether she wants to kiss Tanner or punch him in the gut. He is seriously hot, with legit bedroom eyes and that firefighter body of his, but he’s a major player, and they can’t get along for more than a handful of minutes. Until now.
Tanner knows he and Andrea have had an epic love/hate relationship for as long as he can remember, but he wants more love than hate from her. He wants her. Now. Tomorrow. But the more he gets to know her, the more it becomes obvious that Andrea has a problem. She’s teetering on the edge and every time he tries to catch her, she slips through his fingers.
Andrea’s life is spiraling out of control, and it doesn’t matter that Tanner wants to save her, because when everything falls apart and she’s speeding toward rock bottom, only she can save herself.
Sometimes life makes you work for that happily ever after…
Title: Scorched (Frigid #2)
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Publication Date: June 16, 2015
I want to thank Spencer Hill Press for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review. Receiving this book for free has in no way altered my opinion or review.
I have always been a huge JLA fan. Pretty much there is nothing she would write that I wouldn't read. Seriously, she could write about dirt and I'd be enthralled! So, of course, given the chance to have a copy of this book, I was all over it! And I loved the first book in this series, so I was itchy to get these words into my brain.
First we'll start with the cover. I mean, I loved the cover of Frigid, but his one? OUTDONE! It's fantastic. Really sums up the overall theme for sure.
Then there's Andrea. Not at all what you think she is. On the outside trying to be perfect while on the inside totally not. So something I can relate to. I don't want to give away her situation, but I grew up with her demons and I really was able to connect with her and see where she was coming from. She's sweet and damaged. But she has so much to give, if only she could get her act together.
Tanner and Andrea, well, it's like oil and water. Or maybe fire and ice? But you totally feel the chemistry. Tanner takes a turn into romance land and I love where he goes with it. And, while he and Andrea have this bickering play between them, you see there's so much more there. Put them together and they are totally combustable.
Unlike JLA's past books, this one is filled with issues that will hit home for so many. There's the main issue and then there are these underlying things that pop up. I don't think there's any college girl who will not related to the things Andrea goes through (in one way or another). I think this is what made me like the book so much more. I was kind of sick of all the perfect girls out there, and Andrea is NOT perfect in any sense of the word. It's so nice to see this!
Armetrout's writing does not disappoint. In true form she pulls you and makes you love her characters, her plot, her book. Really, I don't think I've read anything from her that I haven't enjoyed. If you've struggled or know someone who has struggled with the issues she presents, then you will totally connect to Andrea and her need to change.
If you want a story that is powerful, romantic and full of longing, then this is the book for you. Armentrout does not disappoint!
All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.
Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
She is the author of the Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press), the Lux Series (Entangled Teen), Don't Look Back (Disney/Hyperion) and a yet untitled novel (Disney/Hyperion), and new YA paranormal series with Harlequin Teen.
Jennifer also writes New Adult and Adult romance under the pen name J. Lynn. The Gamble Brothers Series (Tempting the Best Man/Tempting the Player) and Wait for You. Under her pen name, she is published with Entangled Brazen and HarperCollins.
Sounds like this one really clicked for you! I'm happy to hear that. I didn't like Frigid and I'm not sure if I'll read this one but I'm glad to see all of the Scorched love!ReplyDelete
Excellent review, Brooke!

We don't know many romance authors who can balance such steamy romance with such heavy subjects so gracefully http://bit.ly/1NlLAByReplyDelete
