He wants her by his side and he will not take no for an answer. Soon Ian is courting Jules and he wears her down enough for her to open up her heart and she let's him in.
Only there is more to Ian then meets the eye and Jules is about to be confronted with another thing she thought was different. Ian confides in Jules and shares his secret and when he does she is non-believing at first but once Ian shows her she has no other choice but to believe him and decides to stand by him.

It took me by surprise and when I heard there was going to be a tour I jumped on board. I have to say that this is one of those series that stays with you long after you finish reading. A Huge Thank you to AToMR Tours for allowing me to be a part of this tour.

They are learning how to harness their gifts when things start to get a little weird in their sleepy town.Shayna is having nightmares and when she wakes she feels tired and bruised like she was actually there in the dream fighting for her life and fighting to save her town from the evil that is lurking.

Josephine has done an EXTRAORDINARY job writing this series. The way Starcrossed left off had my heart beating and longing for more. Lucas....... Lucas....... Lucas OMG what to say about him. How it ended had me screaming NO!!!!!!!!! So to say I was happy to get Dreamless early to read is an understatement.
So without further ado here is my review of Dreamless. Helen is determined to end this centuries old curse of the furies cycle of revenge on the scions and their families. She is determined to go into to hell everyday and night to save the people she loves. The only thing is is that Helen didn't anticipate meeting someone that would sacrifice themselves for her to help her out. She figured she would have to do this alone and that Lucas and his family might be able to help her.
Helen will have to grow up real fast and as time goes on and she learns about her powers she becomes strong and you can see her becoming a woman. I will say this there is a love triangle so if you are not a fan of love triangles you may get mad. I loved Lucas from Starcrossed and I wanted everything to work out for Helen and Lucas and for them to not have to be struggle to be together. I have to say I was very impressed how Josephine spun the love triangle and I think it is good for Helen and Lucas to have to fight for what they want. Love is not handed to you but you have to fight and take it. No matter what it costs you have to fight for it hard.
Josephine has also done an excellent job of introducing the Greek Gods. In Dreamless we get to meet some new Gods and learn more about the old gods we met in Starcrossed. The underworld and Ares and Hades in this book to me is EPIC! I love Greek mythology and I love how Josephine spun the characters into something so much more. Ares is the Olympian god of war and defense and the figure behind all kind of violence and in true Josephine style Ares kicks up some stuff! Then you have Hades oh my my Hades what have you done. Hades is the God and Ruler of the Underworld and boy oh boy does he rule. What Helen has to go through each time she descends The Underworld leaves you breathless.
I could go on and on forever with this review because I love Greek Mythology and I love the story Josephine has spun but I do not want to include any spoilers so I will end this review with saying that this book is a total summer EPIC read!(less)

I absolutely loved her writing and the story caught me right from page one and I could not put it down. I also loved how she nailed it with the descriptions of backpackers. I have a few friends who do it and love it. They go all over the place and help out and live off of basic necessities we take for granted.
Wanderlove drew me in for so many reasons. One Bria is recovering from a broken heart. She has just graduated high school and is deciding on where to go to college when she decides she will take a trip. She is supposed to be with a traveling group but when she lands in Central America and meets a boy Rowan and his sister Starling she decides she will take the road less traveled.
As Bria and Starling get close Starling tells her she is going to her other job volunteering and that Bria should stay on the journey across Central America with Rowan and look after him. Bria thinks it's a bad idea because she can't even take care of herself but she agrees because she wants to see the prettier sides of Central America and she wants to get to know Rowan because he is very secretive and quiet.
As Bria and Rowan travel they learn to confide in one another and share their secrets with one another. Just as they are getting close something happens and Rowan runs and Bria is determined to find him with the help of Starling. As Bria sets out on her own to find Rowan she discovers things about herself that will bring her closer to healing from the pain of her breakup and the feelings she has for her family and most important how she feels for Rowan.
I loved this story because it tugged on so many of my emotions. Bria had to deal with her broken heart but she also had to deal with the fact that she was mentally being abused by her ex-boyfriend. Plus she had family issues that she needed to come to terms with. When she did she was able to open her heart and love. This is a must read and I heard Kristen has some other great books out there so I will be reading them soon.

Rhiannon has taken her time to introduce a new world to readers and in doing so she has her descriptions of this new world lined out and ready for you to read and while you are reading about it you can visualize the places and things she is describing. To me this is crucial when building a new world because telling a story and not giving us any background is very annoying but Rhiannon pulls it off and it made me love this series even more.
Kaliel is one of the main characters and she is a great character. Choosing to do what she wants and follow her heart she sets things into motion that she never expected to. You know the saying the heart wants what the heart wants but at what cost are you willing to pay? For Kaliel it is a matter of life and death and war. What is she willing to surrender in order to be with Krishani?
Krishani is a great character as well as he played his part and he was willing to sacrifice for what he wanted in the end. This story is such a must read I kept saying to my friend who buddy read this with me did you get that, is that so, why is that happening like this was for real. We laughed and we cried and man the ending is something else that had me screaming I needed more no I wanted more because I was not ready to see this world go yet. (less)
