In the game of love…
Dumped by her college boyfriend for her best friend, the last thing Jenna Brandt needs to deal with is working beside her backstabbing-BFF’s hotter-than-hot brother. But when he offers her a chance to get some revenge on her ex, she can hardly say no–even if spending more time with Sutton puts her heart in jeopardy all over again.
Someone’s going to get hurt…
Sutton Bell has had a thing for Jenna since they were in high school, but after one screwed-up night, she didn’t want anything to do with him. Now, with just the summer before he leaves to begin his new career, Sutton’s determined to convince Jenna he’s not the player he used to be. But saving his sister from making an awful mistake may mean losing Jenna for good.
This was a quick and fun read and great characters that made me enjoy the story even more. Jenna has been dumped by her long time boyfriend, only to learn after that he had cheated on her too. But that wasn’t even the worst of it, it was with her best friend Lacey. Sutton, the hot brother and Jenna some up with a plan to make the ex jealous and break up the new couple. Sutton wants his sister away from the same creep that broke Jenna’s heart and will do the same to his sister. I liked the plot, the whole let’s get revenge and break them up, only for it to turn out to be something different are a lot of fun to read. Jenna was stubborn and feisty and Sutton was sweet and caring and together they have some major chemistry. But this wasn’t anything new for them, they apparently had a thing back a few years ago and it didn’t work out all that well. Their banter was refreshing, and fun, with stolen kisses, and steamy encounters. Some decisions made by them both made things worse at times, but we all learn from mistakes and that is just what Jenna and Sutton did.
Fall with Me was an amazing journey for Jenna and Sutton, with second chances and learning sometimes aren’t always what they seem. The ending was sweet, and I kinda wish there was more tho their story. Maybe there will be, because I would certainly pick up.

Every sacrifice has consequences.
Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission:
Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king.
Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he’s capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?
The Shadow Prince is a prequel for the Mortal Enchantment series. We are introduced to a few of the characters, Rowan was the main one. He is a strong character, he has morals which with everything that happened he maintained them and I really like that about him even when he mother the Queen asks him to do something that would cause turmoil not only in their land but other as well. For a little over a 100 pages, there is a lot packed into it. There are those who have control over the elements and the courts that govern them, and there are shape-shifters too. With the action and betrayals and the events that lead up to the end of this prequel, I know that the first book, Mortal Enchantment is going to be an amazing start to this fantasy series. And one I am looking forward to reading.
