Hearts break. Loved ones are lost. Life keeps moving.

Olivia Martin’s afterlife was more dangerous and confusing than her life ever was. She thought she was ready to come back, to forget about Holden and to let go of the rage consuming her. Fulfilling her destiny as a guardian was all that mattered—the past could stay hidden in the crevices of her mind. However, when guard

This story was hard to read at times because it switches between three different main perspectives. Once I got used to it and realized that each chapter was from a different person, it was really cool. I enjoy getting to find out how different characters view what is happening in the story. If you have read most of my character interviews, you know that I very rarely pick the main character to ask questions. I wouldn't need to do that for this story since you get Olivia, Holden, AND Quintus's vi ...more

I had already read Secrets, Book 1 of Liz Schulte's Guardian Trilogy, and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I was very excited for the sequel. Choices definitely did not disappoint. The part I enjoyed the most was learning what it takes to be a guardian, right along with Olivia, and to watch her clumsy attempts at manipulating light and her heartfelt insights into the lives of those she is charged to help.

Not everyone in Olivia's life is as admirable as she sees them. Look for at least one shocking reve

I can't believe how much I am enjoying this trilogy! On to book 3!!

Choices by Liz Schulte

My opinion of this second book in this series Choices by Liz Schulte can be summed up in one word FANTASTIC. I just made her my new best friend. In the Twilight series you have Team Edward and Team Jacob but in Choices you get the same type of triangle Team Quintus and Team Holden. I for one am Team Holden he is one hot Jinn. In this second book they are waiting for Olivia to return. Holden who is evil is haunted by the love that he had for her thinking when she returns tha

In the interest of full disclosure, I didn't read the first book in this trilogy. Not that I didn't want to but things got a little messy and it just wasn't possible. I'm sorry I missed it because I really could not put this book down. There were some instances during the story that I felt a little lost but there was enough background offered that I finally understood what was happening. You can avoid that by reading Secrets first.

Having said that, Choices by Liz Schulte is a great book with som

I think Choices is a stellar mid point in this trilogy, and I was happy to read and review both books courtesy of Promotional Book Tours, but I really think you may find yourself asking a lot of questions if you just pick up Choices (hint-hint!). If you've already read Secrets, than this one will not disappoint you one bit. It will leave you craving the final leg of the story which sadly isn't out till Fall 2012 (yes I checked as soon as I finished Secrets, because I knew I was in love with anot ...more

So a human, a jinni, a guardian angel, and a demon walk into a bar…. Actually that would be the beginning of a bad joke. But all those characters are in this book. The basic premis of this story is what would happen if a Jinni (person who made a deal for their soul with a demon) who was cursed to do the bidding of hell for eternity fell in love with a human born to be a powerful guardian angel when they died.

In the book Secrets, Olivia falls in love with tall, dark, and brooding Holden, who tu

A thrilling paranormal romance I could not put down. Earlier in the week, I started reading Secrets with a pretty hefty TBR pile that I planned to get to right after I finished. But that’s not how it worked out. Once I finished Ms. Schulte’s spectacular, unique story, I had to have more, as I’m sure that was her intentions with the way Secrets ended. So I dove head first into Choices and devoured that book too. I think it’s safe to say I’ve found a new author that I love and a story that I conne ...more

Second book in a series and still alternating first person between the two main characters. It's well done, the author does a good job rounding out the characters. I enjoyed getting lost for a few hours while I read.
Debdatta D. Sahay (b00k r3vi3ws)
The thing with sequels is that, it usually gets difficult for the author to live up to the expectations set by the first book. Ms.Schulte has definitely delivered a sequel that’s as good as the first one – if not better.

I am finding it really difficult to review this second book in the trilogy without giving out much spoilers. So, I will keep it really short. The first thing about ‘Choices’ is that you need to read ‘Secrets’ first. Otherwise you may find yourself doing a lot of wondering and ask

I love this series, and Schulte does a wonderful job pulling the reader into her world. It was impossible to put the book down once I started. I can't wait to see how this ends.
Lisa Rayns
I’ve been completely HOOKED on this series since Chapter 2 of Secrets. It is a must read! I rave about this series to everyone. Why? I’m in love with her “Bad Boy” Holden Smith.

I love Liz’s writing style and her unique ability to draw me in and hold me until the last page. All her books, I read in one sitting because I simply CANNOT put them down. Secrets and Choices are both filled with amazing dialogue, heart-pounding action, high stakes suspense, and I love all that, but Holden has me wrappe

The series story line is driven with the same conflicts good versus evil, and an impossible love story between two unlikely individuals. HOWEVER, that is where the similarities end. The concept is unique and keeps you interested from page one. I would recommend this to anyone that would like to read an original concept. In the realm of fantasy this series ties the impossible together with the human ability to feel, an unlikely presentation of selfishness, selflessness and sacrifice. I really lik ...more

AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! I so love this series. I rarely give 5 stars, it has to be one of those books, that I dread ending. I kept putting it down, because I didn't want it to end. I am really looking forward to the next one, but dreading it at the same time. I don't want it to end. Holden is one of my very favorite characters and I adore Olivia. Quintus really got on my nerves though, but that's good, if there isn't someone in a book that gets on your nerves, it would be boring.
Kara Sjoblom-Bay
The first book (Secrets) felt a little slow to me, so I am glad I went on to the second book, which is a lot livelier. There's a lot more action in Choices, and I felt like I got to know the main characters a lot better in this one. I like that Schulte leaves you with mixed feelings about the characters - no one is all good, and no one is all evil (at least in terms of the main characters). I'm looking forward to the imminent (I hope) release of the final book in the trilogy, Consequences.

This sequel definitely lived up to it's expectation. The author leads the reader alongside the characters through confusion and emotions very well. I really like the writing style. This one took a little slower pace in the beginning but towards the end the excitement picks up and we are left once more with anticipation for the final book of the series.

I was provided a review copy courtesy of Promotional Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.
Julie
Three stars for this book. I enjoyed the first in the trilogy, and this second was also good, but it left me just a little with the feeling that it was simply tying together books 1 and 3, with not a great deal of plot development in itself. As for book 1, the characters were interesting, and unresolved questions kept the reader intrigued about where the story was going. Will definitely read book 3 to find out the answers.
Krystal Caloia
LOVED this one as much as I loved the first one!!! So glad I bought the third one too, otherwise I would be going crazy!!
Lea
I got this one for free off Amazon (its still free). and I was in-between books so I thought I would give it a try. Its a typical story.. Opposites attract, forbidden love, controlling guy. Which is why I read all three books in 3 days - (they are pretty short. Sometimes it reminded me of Charmed (the tv show) but I tried to push that aside. I found I was reading them just to see what happened.
Stephanie
I am in love with this series!!!! The first book was amazing, keeping you on your toes, never knowing what was going to happen. This one was also amazing. Breezed throughed it in a day. It captivated me. Just bought Consequences and CANNOT wait to start!!!! Love this series and the characters. I wil definitely be reading more by LIz Schulte!!!
Chris Patterson
This roller coaster of a follow up to the Guardian Series: Secrets does NOT disappoint. Sometimes you get a "book 2" in a trilogy that will stall out, but that is most certainly not the case here. Repeatedly read and re-read by me, does not get old, only brings to life "old" friends. Suspenseful and captivating.
Danielle Young
This book was even better than the first. More action and more suspense. I just couldn't get enough of Holden and Olivia. I was so attached to these characters, Liz does such a good job at making them so deep. This book had everything and more. Just couldn't put it down!
Valerie
Love everything about this book and went thru all the heart ache that came with it again...just love torturing myself by re-reading books that have so much emotion in them....looking forward to getting my downers turned into betters with the next book!!
Gina Arico connelly
This was another fantastic book. Could not put it down!
Dora
Amazeballs! I LOVED it!!!

This was such an amazing follow up to Secrets. I loved the writing style, moving through each person's point of by chapter. I couldn't put it down.

Fabulous job, Liz! Can't wait for book #3!
Karissa Wolfe
I thoroughly enjoyed this book...better than the first. I think the story is definitely sucking me in and I can't wait to find out what happens next!
Jill
I really liked the book, but really wanted to get Holden and Olivia back together. The suspense killed me through most of the book.
Jenny
Really enjoying the twist and turns of this series! Gobbled this one up in 4 days... on to the next!
Kristina


Cannot believe how good these books are :)
I love me some Holden! Or some Q.

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she reali ...more
