Synopsis

Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.

Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her.

Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him?

But as the Fae Prince begins to close in on Ivy, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

Mary’s 5 Star Review

Five hundred and seventy six days since I read the last sentence in Wicked. Five hundred seventy six days waiting and anticipating the return of Ivy and Ren. A couple I fell hopelessly in love with over a year ago, but who is counting? Right? Well, I can tell you that the phrase good things come to those who wait may have been written just for this book. I could jump right back into this story without even missing a beat, almost as if I never left. Like the best friend, you haven’t seen in ages. The one where no matter how much time passes you can fall into a comfortable groove with. This book is that best friend for me.

Torn picks up where the previous book left off. If you haven’t read it, I recommend you do. You will need to read it before the second in the trilogy. The first thing that jumped out at me was Tink, that brownie is the perfect best friend, and well I was happy to learn there is so much to him then I thought. Second, Ren and Ivy may be my new favorite JLA couple. Sorry, Katy and Daemon. It’s really close though. A strong and powerful duo like Ren and Ivy is hard to be matched. Fighting for the greater good, saving lives of humans, all without anyone really knowing that you are part of the order sworn to protect humanity from evil Fae. Then there is the hot factor, not the kind that will burn you, but the passionate and all encompassing kind of love. One that comes around once in a life time. Those’re just some of the reasons why they are at the top of my list.

This is far from the mushy love story, but it wouldn’t be a great JLA book if we didn’t love the hero and the heroine for everything they represent. The action and adventure kept me turning the pages, and not wanting to put down my kindle. Then there were the twists, revelations, and the nail biting.

I didn’t want this one to end. I craved this one for so long that I became instantly addicted, but when it comes to JLA, she is quite the story teller. She can weave a story so beautifully that you may be reading a book, but truly it’s a work of art. I’m looking forward to seeing where the third book takes us. The possibilities are endless, and I can’t wait to find out where Ren and Ivy’s journey goes.

Excerpt

My fingers tightened around the slender remote. “I was thinking that if the prince can sense me, why hasn’t he showed up here?”

“I don’t know.” Tink came down to the coffee table and started marching across it. I’m not the prince, but if I was the prince, I’d be buying time.”

“Buying time?” I scooted to the edge of the couch.

“Yeah, because he’s got to win you over.” Tink swiped up the straw he’d had in his Coke. It was nearly the size of him. “That’s basically what he has to do if he wants to impregnate you.”

I cringed, like a full body cringe. “Please do not use the word impregnate ever again.”

“Why? That’s what he wants to do.” He started dancing with the straw, the kind of dancing you see in the clubs. Hips gyrating all over the place. “He knows coercing or tricking you isn’t going to get the deed done, so he’s probably trying to learn how not to be a sexed up dickhead.”

“Sexed up dickhead?” I repeated.

“Uh-huh.” Tink dipped the straw as one would a dancer. “Remember when I was telling you how I saw the prince getting it on with three females once? He’s totes sexed up. And he’s a dickhead. In other words, he has no empathy or compassion. No humanity.”

“Most fae don’t.”

Tink twirled the straw. “Yeah, but the ancients are worse. They’re as far away from human as you can get. He’s going to have to work on wooing you.”

I slowly shook my head. “That’s…” There were no words.

“That’s what I’d do.” Tink dropped the straw and whipped around toward me. “Or he’s plotting something major and any moment he’s going to knock down the front door and storm the place.”

“Wow.” A fine shiver curled down my spine. “That’s really a relaxing thought.”

He zipped over to the couch and sat on the arm. He tipped his head back and stared up at me. “Don’t worry. I’m here to protect you.”

I just looked at him, because other than ordering shit off of Amazon, the only strength he had was the unique ability to annoy the crap out of me while somehow still managing to be endearing.

Tink grinned. “Trust me, Ivy. The Prince is not going to want to mess with me.”
