Three months ago, Nicholas Keller found out he was part of an ancient group called the Thusians. He thought his life was settling down, until his new neighbors move in. Now he finds himself taking part of an impossible search. In order to protect everyone he cares about, he must figure out who to trust.
Trust picks up where Secrets leaves off, tossing Nicholas and Elle back in to danger. The writing is clearer (perhaps due to not having to reestablish the world) and there is a nice build of anticipation about the search. Readers who liked following Nicholas in Secrets will enjoy Trust even more.
Like Secrets, Trust was an entertaining read, fast-paced and full of mystery that keeps readers turning the page. Nicholas's story doesn't seem over yet, and readers will be curious to see what his next challenge will be. (less)

Harlow is broke. Her snow cone vending job isn't going to pay the bills since her roommate moved out and her student funding got cut. So she walks into the Mad Hatter and becomes a stripper.
The book begins with a strong, sexy (if shy) Harlow, who knows what she wants and is determined to get it. As the novel progresses, she becomes more dependent on Cam, the sexy bartender who is slowly stealing her heart. The plot is a little loose, with someone suddenly stalking Harlow, but the chemistry and humor between her and Cam is endearing. The way Cam knows exactly what to do to drive her crazy, knows where to take her to sweep her off her feet, and shows up exactly when she needs him is both sweet and frustrating.
Tease has a cast of characters who readers will want to know more about, a lot of teasing sex appeal, and some sweet and funny moments.(less)
The problem with passing out is that upon awakening, you had to face the pain of whatever caused you to pass out in the first place all over again.

Katie Parks likes her quiet life. She's alone--has been since she was fifteen--with her books most of the time. Until she awakens tied to a chair with flames around her and is saved by a daring fireman, Holt.
While the end reason for why Katie is being stalked is a bit thin, there's no denying the chemistry between her and Holt. The heat between them flares quickly to instalove, and Katie gives herself to Holt before the bad guy is found. Holt is the most sensitive guy alive, always knowing exactly what to say--and it's always the most sweetest thing of dreams.
Torch is a sexy, fluffy, sweet start to the Take It Off series. There's so much heat, it's a miracle the characters don't go up in flames.

Cassiel Winters has a secret. In order to find her missing brother, Daz, she's enlisted in the Academy. But when her Hand to Hand test goes awry and she's given a mission in exchange for her staying in ESE, she finds out there is more to her secret than she ever knew possible.
Sky's End isn't an easy book to get in to, but once there, the story flows along at a considerable pace. While there are still slow points, the incredible situations Cassiel gets herself into--and out of--maintain the reader's attention despite strange words that are never quite defined or distracting repetition and over-used made-up words.
Cassiel's voice is strong, but she is young and she shows it in many ways. She is reluctant to admit her feelings, yet she's happy to slip anyone some tongue, once she starts. The intended tension didn't live up to the ping-pong of Cassiel's emotional roller coaster.
Sky's End is an interesting start to a new world of sci-fi, where women are stronger than even they knew, aliens are super-sexy warriors, and finding yourself is only the beginning.(less)
