Review: Wintersong (Wintersong #1) by S. Jae-Jones

Title: Wintersong
Author: S. Jae-Jones
My rating: 5 hearts
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
Pub. date: February 7th 2017
Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books
SynopsisBeware the goblin men and the wares they sell.

All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world. (synopsis from Goodreads)

Review: Shelter (Getaway #2) by Jay Crownover

Title: Shelter
Author: Jay Crownover
My rating: 5 hearts
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Pub. date: December 26th, 2017
SynopsisHis life is chaos and confusion. It’s a storm of uncertainty and raging emotion. 

Sutton Warner is a mess. Everything in his life feels like it’s unraveling. 

He’s let a lot of people down lately, including his daughter. Sutton always promised his little girl he would never disappoint her and that he would always be there when she needed him. Until he wasn’t. 

The truth is, he’s used to disappointing the women in his life. First was his mother who couldn’t find a reason to stick around when he was growing up. Then there’s his ex. The woman who takes unbridled delight in making his life incredibly complicated.
Luckily, his daughter is still young enough to believe her old man is some kind of hero. But, he knows the day is coming when she realizes the truth, that he’s just a man with some serious flaws and a list of ever-growing weaknesses. 

Finally, there’s the woman he’s desperately trying to forget with every shot tossed back and each pill popped.

He more than disappointed Emrys…he almost got her killed.

Her love is steady and sure. It’s a shelter shaped by conviction and silent assurance.

Emrys Santos is lost. Everything in her life feels pointless and futile.

She’s been busy running away from her feelings and all the people who love her the most—including her best friend, the one person who knows exactly what she’s been through. They promised to always stick together and to lean on one another. It was a promise Em had to break so she could lick her wounds and figure out her next move. For once, there is no easy way out of the tangled web of emotions she’s caught up in, and right now, she recognizes that all roads lead back to Wyoming…and back to Sutton.
The man she nearly got killed. (synopsis from Goodreads)

Title: The Two Princes of Summer
Author: Nissa Leder
My rating: 2.5 hearts
Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy, Romance
SynopsisRunning away to Faerie isn’t quite the fairytale Scarlett had hoped it would be.

After her mother's suicide, Scarlett's grief consumes her. So much so, she can't even visit her grave. Escaping the mortal world seems the best option when Cade, a fae prince, lures her into Faerie by promising to take away her pain.

Cade seems the perfect answer to Scarlett's problems. Gorgeous, mysterious, with a gift that keeps her numb. But everything that makes him alluring also makes him dangerous. As things between them heat up, Scarlett must decide how far she's willing to go to avoid her guilt and heartache.

The more Cade feeds from her emotion, the further Scarlett's life in the mortal realm drifts. And it isn't just Cade she has to worry about. She's captured the attention of his older brother, Raith, too. Scarlett is caught in between the two brothers as they prepare to fight for the Right of Heir to the Summer Court crown.

As her boundaries are tested, will Scarlett lose herself in the world of magic, lust, and danger? Or will she find a way to cope with her sorrow and untangle herself from the two princes before they've devoured her completely? (synopsis from Goodreads)

Title: The Heartbreak Cure
Author: Amanda Ashby
My rating: 4 hearts
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Pub. date: December 4th 2017
Publisher: Entangled: Crush
Synopsis: How to get over a heartbreak:

Step one: Eat your body weight in brownies.

Step two: Throw yourself into your dreams of becoming a famous writer. 

Step three: Beg your (hottie) ex-neighbor to act as your fake boyfriend. 

Step four: Skip step three unless you’re ready for some serious fallout.

After being dumped and humiliated over the summer, Cat Turner does what any sane girl would do. She asks bad boy Alex Locke to be her fake boyfriend and show the world (and her editor at the school newspaper) that she's fine. Problem is, the more time she spends with Alex, the more she risks getting her heart broken. For real this time. 

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a swoony bad boy who will melt your heart, brownies, and witty banter. One, two, or all three might prove addictive… (synopsis from Goodreads)
