Goodreads Summary:

Is she strong enough to fulfill her legacy or will the dark side prevail?

After the gruesome battle on Xzanthar, General Arantu is on a mission to seek retribution, and he has Earth in his sights. Alinthia and her protectors ally with the government to shield innocent humans from attack, but that’s not their only concern.

As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Alinthia’s awakening draws closer, and no one knows what to expect.

Working from the secret society’s hidden base in the Valley of the Queens, Alinthia attempts to forge partnerships with alien allies in preparation for the ultimate battle. However, emotions are running high, distrust is rampant, and loyalty is hard-won.

Dane continues to push Alinthia away, causing additional friction and uncertainty when they can’t afford to be divided. Determined to avoid confronting what happened on Xzanthar, he throws himself into his duties, butting heads with everyone as he struggles to deal with the aftermath.

Presenting a united front has never been more important, but will their bond be enough to save Alinthia from the dark, evil forces still lurking in the shadows? Or are they all doomed to fail?

My Review:

If you’ve been following this series, then you know that Alinthia and her 4 protectors (Dane, Maddox, Beckett and Cooper) were brought together as babies and bonded with magic. Then then were ripped apart from each other and grew up the 4 protectors separated from Alinthia. They were taught of the prophecy that centered around Alinthia and her protectors, that their bond was important in helping her be the savior of the universe. But Alinthia grew up on earth with her memory wiped, not knowing of her protectors, their bond, or the prophecy.

Now that Alinthia is reunited with her protectors and the bond growing and her powers getting stronger, they run across some pretty traumatic things that happen to them. Now as a result of that some of the protectors’ bond with Alinthia is growing stronger, but some is growing non existent. My heart cries for suffering that goes on and i worry, because if they don’t repair the bond then Alinthia won’t be able to defeat General Arantu (the threat to the universe).

In this book, The Chosen One, things get really hot & steamy between Alinthia and her protectors. Except for one, where things are pretty cold & distant. Can Alinthia keep her protectors close and strengthen her bond? My heart was aching so much for all the hurting & pain. I had tears sliding down my face. But she has her other protectors who tell her they love and cherish her all the time. They’re so sweet and so loving. When General Arantu‘s men attack earth Alinthia takes them out. But Alinthia has nightmares where some creature is trying to kill her and it’s like what happens in her nightmares really happens, so she becomes afraid to sleep.

This book touches on the science fiction aspect, but i think it focused more on there relationships as the Chosen One and her Protectors. Their bond is important, and we see how the three of them have opened up to it and become so much closer to Alinthia. But we also see that link that is fragile, that is breaking and needs help and isn’t accepting it. This book was so important in bringing us to the final book. I loved it. Those complex characters were written so well, not just their dialogue and their thoughts, but their actions as well. I just love this series and really look forward to the last book!! Very Highly Recommended!!!

MY REVIEW 

This book is full of SO MUCH YUMMY GOODNESS!!!! Yes, Luc is as Yummy as Daemon!!!! Except Luc has that quirky, weird thing he had going on when we met him in the Lux Series. There are some really great swoon-worthy romance moments between Luc and Evie too!! But it also has the good and bad aliens, the action, the suspense and the shock factor! The Darkest Star is definitely a great start to another of JLA’s promising new SciFi/Romance Series!
When I kept reading that you will love Luc as much, if not more than Daemon, I said no way. But IT IS SOOO TRUE!!! I loved Daemon, I was (and still am) a HUGE Daemon fan!! But Luc is really something special!!! You have to experience him to believe it!! And YES, you will see some of those we love from the Lux series! In fact, as this series goes on we will see more!! But I am now such a HUGE Luc fan!!! Yes, he’s my favorite now!!
If you love the Lux series then you are DEFINITELY going to LOVE this!! If you haven’t read the Lux series, what are you waiting for? Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of the best and her series are awesome, especially the Lux and now this spin off series!! Highly, HIGHLY recommend this!!! 5+5+5+ Stars!!!

The Lost Savior (Alinthia) by Siobhan Davis

EE7C7621-8125-4B41-95FF-2BC494FB807B

They came from another world to protect her. Now it’s her destiny to save them …

Tori King is a normal senior in high school. Head over heels in love with her childhood sweetheart, she is busy making plans for college when a chance encounter with an alien bounty hunter turns her world upside down. Now, she’s experiencing terrifying changes and developing supernatural abilities that leave her questioning her entire existence.

Then the arrival of four hot new guys at school has everyone talking—especially when they become fixated on Tori, following her wherever she goes. She can’t shake them off, and as they grow closer, she finds herself drawn to all four of them in ways she cannot explain.

When they finally reveal their true identity, and why they’re here for her, she discovers everything she thought she knew about herself is a lie.

Because there is nothing normal about Tori King.

And she’s about to discover exactly how underrated normal is.

…This mind-bending alien reverse harem series is only suitable for readers aged seventeen and older due to language and mature content

MY REVIEW

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! It was a lot of fun! Tori discovering she was an alien, finding out she has four gorgeous alien protectors that she is bound to (oh my!), having to try and accept this and balance it with her “human” life…and so much more that I won’t say because SPOILERS!

At first it’s mostly in Tori’s voice. Then as the guys come into it more there are chapters in each of their voices, helping us to get to know the four of them. I think as the series continues we will continue to get to know them, and relationships will develop more. They are very protective of Tori and their connection to her affects them in ways they didn’t expect.

I loved some of sarcasm in the book. Between the guys, they get pretty funny. But also Tori when she was fighting she would get real sarcastic, kind of like Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Lol!!

This is going to be a great series!! I can’t wait for the next book!!

Buy it NOW while it’s still only .99c!!!  Here’s the link:

Rescuing Prince CharmingRescuing Prince Charming (Alien Contact for Idiots #4)
By Edward Hoornaert
Genre: Science Fiction Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 4 December, 2017

Blurb:
Dusty Johnson, a self-styled ordinary, everyday woman, responds with extraordinary heroism to saboteurs trying to bomb the prototype of Earth’s first starship. She wants to return to anonymity, but her moment of courage propels her ever deeper into danger that tears the scabs off her dark past—and thrusts her into the arms of the unattainable man of her dreams.

Reese Eaglesbrood, an alien prince, yearns to restore his tattered reputation by guiding the starship project to completion, but his fascination with the unassuming heroine threatens to undermine his fragile authority. Shunning Dusty is necessary, yet unthinkable—and when the saboteurs strike again, she may be his only ally against Earth’s darkest enemies.
