Blog Tour: The Sweetest Burn by Jeaniene Frost

Author: Jeaniene Frost
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: June 2017

Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous—and dangerously sexy—Adrian. Ivy isn’t sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between the demon and human realms, or resisting Adrian, who’s decided that come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.

At first, Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he’s vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny—and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them—will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined…

 “Frost scores another win with the mesmerizing second Broken Destiny supernatural contemporary… The novel thrums with energy, its pacing breakneck from the very start, and piles on the sexual tension. Frost provides a much-needed inventive boost to the tired angel/demon subset of supernatural fantasy.” –Publishers Weekly

The Sweetest Burn is the long awaited second book in the Broken Destiny series.  From what I understand there has been three years between the first book, The Beautiful Ashes and this one.  Thankfully, I didn't have to wait that long between books having only just recently read the first one (my review).  You should definitely read this series in order.  There is a lot of world building that goes on in the first book that isn't completely covered in the second.  The second book picks up a short time after the events of the first book and takes off running.  So, just be advised, this one isn't a stand alone and you might get some spoilers by reading this one first.

That being said, Ivy and Adrian must team up once again to find the second hallowed weapon. The embark on a road trip with Costa, Jasmine and Brutus (who I love) to track it down.  I enjoyed this installment.  I loved the chemistry between Ivy and Adrian even more than in the first book.  It was definitely hotter this time around.  I felt like I got to know their characters better and found myself really rooting for their doomed relationship.  Aside from the romance playing a bigger part in this book, it's once again filled with a lot of demon  fighting action. This book flew by because I was kept engaged all the way through. I couldn't put it down. As with the first book, the final scenes were among my favorites.  

So far, this is a great series and one I highly recommend. The conclusion to the series, The Brightest Embers is slated to be released in November 2017.  It's definitely on my TBR pile already.
