The Darkest Star (Origin #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

TITLE: The Darkest Star
AUTHOR: Jennifer L. Armentrout
RATING: 5 Stars
PAGES: 368
PUBLISHER: Tor Teen
SERIES: Origin #1
SOURCE: eArc kindly provided by author
When seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher is caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen...but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she'd only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head...

#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout returns to the universe of the Lux in this brand new series, featuring beloved characters both new and old.
(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

It is SO good to be back in the world with Luxen and Origins and all the other things that go bump in the night. The Darkest Star picks up a little while after the events of the final Lux book and things are still adjusting after the events of the final Lux book (if you don't want to be spoiled for the Lux books please pick those up first, they're fun and fast reads and I highly recommend!). Things are of course not always as they seem and Luxen are struggling to fit into a society that is unsure if it should be so welcoming or not. 

This grown-up version of Luc we see is even more intimidating, mysterious and also HOT. We get to see a whole other side of the origin to end all origins and I am so here for it. Evie is also great and also a surprisingly refreshing character. She gives us a sort've outside yet inside view of living in a Luxen world and her strange ties to the Luxen/Origins are complicated and delicious. For fans of the Lux series have no fear we do get to see some familiar faces and it is SO GOOD. 

I think this book is proof Jen is back in her element in this world that she's created that all her fans will love and enjoy. Her writing has grown so much since the Lux series that it's amazing and adds so much depth to the book! The Darkest Star is by one of my new all-time favorite books of the year and I can honestly say I cannot wait for the next book in the series, I need more Luc in my life!

1001 Dark Nights Presents The Prince By Jennifer L. Armentrout REVIEW

TITLE: The Prince
AUTHOR: Jennifer L. Armentrout
RATING: 5 Stars
PAGES: 125
PUBLISHER: Evil Eye Concepts, Incorporated (1,001 Dark Nights)
SERIES: Wicked #3.5 (novella)
SOURCE: eArc kindly provided by author
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout comes a new story in her Wicked series… 

She’s everything he wants….

Cold. Heartless. Deadly. Whispers of his name alone bring fear to fae and mortals alike. The Prince. There is nothing in the mortal world more dangerous than him. Haunted by a past he couldn’t control, all Caden desires is revenge against those who’d wronged him, trapping him in never-ending nightmare. And there is one person he knows can help him.

She’s everything he can’t have…

Raised within the Order, Brighton Jussier knows just how dangerous the Prince is, reformed or not. She’d seen firsthand what atrocities he could be capable of. The last thing she wants to do is help him, but he leaves her little choice. Forced to work alongside him, she begins to see the man under the bitter ice. Yearning for him feels like the definition of insanity, but there’s no denying the heat in his touch and the wicked promise is his stare.

She’s everything he’ll take….

But there’s someone out there who wants to return the Prince to his former self. A walking, breathing nightmare that is hell bent on destroying the world and everyone close to him. The last thing either of them needs is a distraction, but with the attraction growing between them each now, the one thing he wants more than anything may be the one thing that will be his undoing.

She’s everything he’d die for….

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.** 

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

I love the Wicked series. And this book, this wonderful novella, made me so happy. We're back in the hot and mysterious world of the wicked picking up not long after the events of Brave. We get some glimpses of how our fave bad-ass duo Ren and Ivy are and also more Tink which is NEVER a bad thing. I am all for a Tink fan club! We were introduced to "the Prince" in the previous books in the Wicked series but in this novella we are given an all-new view of him and who exactly he truly is. Brighton is also a fantastic heroine I think I enjoy her so much because she's the opposite of Ivy, and both of them are just as awesome as the other. I also just want to say I totally ship this ship :). I think it was such a great thing to see another side of the prince that we didn't see in the previous books and to really explore him and who he is. Pairing off with Brighton in an sort of revenge mission it's so fun to see their slow burn grow. It is a novella but to me I felt like so much was packed into it and Armentrout really took advantage of the story and moving things along quickly due to the smaller size.

If you haven't already read the Wicked trilogy I would recommend reading those first because they're awesome but also so that you avoid spoilers that are in this novella.

If you enjoyed the Wicked books and wanted more (I mean, I think we can all agree after that ending we wanted more) then you will be very very happy with this novella! I also want to note that there will be another novella titled The King that will be coming out and I cannot wait!

EXCERPT: Did it make you a bad friend if you were completely, a hundred percent envious of that friend? Yes? No? Kind of? I figured it was somewhere in between. That’s what I was mulling over as I watched Ivy Morgan brush thick, red curls over her shoulder, laughing at something her boyfriend Ren Owens had said to her. At least I wasn’t envious of that—their love. Okay, well, that wasn’t entirely true. Pretty sure anyone who was as single as me would be envious of all that warm and fuzzy that was passed back and forth with each long look or casual brush of skin. The two could barely tear their gazes away from one another to eat the dinner we’d grabbed at the cute little diner inside the shopping center on Prytania Street. I honest to God couldn’t be happier for them. They’d been through so much—way more than two people should ever have to go through to be together, and here they were, stronger and more in love than ever, and they deserved that happiness. But their epic love story wasn’t the source of a current case of the green-eye monster that was sitting on my shoulder. Ivy was just such a… badass. Even right now, relaxed in the chair, surrounded by twinkling Christmas lights with her hand in Ren’s and her belly full of a cheeseburger deluxe and crinkle fries and half of my tater tots, she could kick ass and take names along with addresses, telephone numbers, and social security numbers. If the proverbial poo hit the fan, you called Ivy or Ren. If you needed to know what streets Royal intersected with, you called… me. Or if you needed coffee or fresh beignets but were currently busy, you know, saving the world, you’d call me. The three of us were all members of the Order, a widespread organization that was literally the only thing that stood between mankind and complete, utter enslavement and destruction by the fae. And not the super cute fae found in Disney movies or some crap like that. Humans thought they were on top of the food chain. They were wrong. The fae were. The only thing pop culture got right about the fae was their slightly pointy ears. That was it. The fae were more than just beings from another world—the Otherworld—they were capable of glamouring their appearance to blend in with humans. But all Order members, even me, were warded at birth against the glamour. We saw through the human fa├žade to the creature that lurked beneath.

Moonlight Seduction: A de Vincent Novel from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout is available NOW!

MoonlightSeduction mm c
The de Vincent brothers are back—and so is the intrigue that surrounds them—in New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout’s sizzling new novel . . .
Nicolette Bresson never thought she’d return to the de Vincents’ bayou compound. It’s where her parents work, where Nikki grew up . . . and where she got her heart broken by Gabriel de Vincent himself. Yet here she is, filling in for her sick mother. Avoiding Gabe should be easy, especially when so much of Nikki’s time is spent trying not to be stabbed in the back by the malicious hangers-on who frequent the mansion. But escaping memories of Gabe, much less his smoking-hot presence, is harder than expected—especially since he seems determined to be in Nikki’s space as much as possible.
Gabriel spent years beating himself up over his last encounter with Nikki. He’d wanted her then, but for reasons that were bad for both of them. Things have now changed. Gabe sees more than a girl he’s known forever; he sees a smart, talented, and heartbreakingly beautiful woman . . . one who’s being stalked from the shadows. Now, Gabe will do anything to keep Nikki safe—and to stop the de Vincent curse from striking again.

Excerpt:
He moved forward, maybe a foot or two, but stopped like one would if they were approaching a rabid dog. A heartbeat passed. “Your hair . . .” He tilted his head to the side. “It’s different.” “Yeah, it is.” Her hair used to be a rather dull medium brown, but then she found this amazing hair stylist in Tuscaloosa and turned her brown hair into this array of blondes and browns, using some weird technique called balayage. “It’s basically just highlights and stuff.” “Stuff.” His gaze flickered over the bun. Uncomfortable, she scanned the kitchen. “And my hair is longer. A lot longer.” His brows lifted. Was she really telling him the length of her hair? This was the most strained conversation she’d ever had in her life. And that was, well, it was sad. She peeked at him. It used to not be this way. Back before . . . well, before she ruined everything, he’d be teasing her and asking about her college. He’d be talking to her like he could actually stand being in the same room with her. She needed this conversation to be over like it was yesterday and she also needed to figure out how she could work here and not run into Gabe. The house was big enough that it should be possible. “I need to get back to—” “Planting your face against the over door?” Her shoulders slumped. “Actually, I need to finish the potatoes. So, if you’ll excuse me.” She started to turn away, praying that he’d just leave. “That’s it? That’s all you have to say to me? Because I have a lot I need to say to you,” he said. “Never in a million years did I think I’d see you here again.” Nikki’s spine stiffened like steel had been poured into it. Oh God. Her throat spasmed. “We need to talk.” “No we don’t,” she said quickly. “We do not need to talk about anything.” “Bullshit,” he snapped, and his voice was so much closer that she turned to him on instinct. Gabe was now at the edge of the massive island, only two or three feet from her. She stepped back into the counter. Her heart thundered in her chest as her gaze flicked to the kitchen door. “No one is coming near here,” he said as if reading her mind. Her gaze flew back to his. “Dev is in his office on the second floor, in a meeting and your father is out with the landscaper. No one is going to hear us.” A weird mixture of sensations assaulted her. One was a chill that skated down her spine. The other was a tight, hot shiver that danced over her skin. Gabe kept coming at her, not stopping until he was right in front of her, separated by a few inches. She sucked in air, catching the crisp, clean scent of his cologne. It reminded her of storms, of that night. That was the last thing she wanted to be reminded of. Like his brother, he was a good head and then some taller than her, so right now, her eyes were fastened to his chest. Thank God he was wearing a shirt. “I . . . I don’t want to talk,” she managed to say. “I do.” “Gabe—” “You owe me this.” Her body jerked as she pressed her lips together. He was right. She owed him a conversation. “Okay.” There was another beat of silence and then he asked in a voice so low she almost didn’t believe she heard him right. “Did I hurt you that night?”

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)


Our favorite dark and mysterious brothers are back in an all new installment to the de Vincent world.
Things are not all that they seem in the world of the de Vincents, behind all the deviously handsome
brother's wealth are more skeletons then imaginable - and their deeds may yet catch up to them. Nicolette
is returning back to the de Vincent manor for the first time in years, her mother our favorite sweet house-keeper
is out of commission and dear Nikki has returned to take over her mother's duties. But returning to the
de Vincent home also means seeing our favorite dark and dangerous Gabriel.

Second chance romances are probably my most favorite trope of all time, and this book did not disappoint! It
more than delivered all the sexy and creepy vibes that we all grew to love from the first book in the series,
Moonlight Sins. I am also totally convinced that Ghost Hunters would pay a fortune to be able to investigate the
de Vincent mansion, if they were to be allowed in that is! I think one of my favorite things about this series is
the seriously creepy vibes we get throughout the whole novel. And that devious de Vincent curse that seems to
want blood...

Nikki and Gabe are now one of my favorite JLA couples, they both just seem to balance each other out so well
and I've always sort've cheered for Gabe to find someone. In book one he seemed sort've like the softer one of the
three brothers and with this installment my opinion has altered and he is now firmly on my book boyfriend list.
Their relationship is intense but in a much quieter way and I really appreciated that aspect of them, they just click.

Hands down Moonlight Seduction is an enticing and sexy installment, and now my favorite book in the series (though
my evil heart can't wait to see the Devil brought to his knees). You do not have to read Moonlight Sins before diving into
this novel but I do highly recommend it just for the insight and to get a better understanding of the more paranormal aspect
of the story line. Amazing read, and I am HIGHLY anticipating book three!
