The Sweetest Burn
The breathtaking second novel in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny series finds Ivy and Adrian rekindling their alliance—and passion—as the struggle for the fate of the world begins…
Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her...more
Like all of Jeaniene Frost's books, this one was packed with action and entertainment.
Something I really like from her books and that is also present in this series, is that the females are always strong, independent, resourceful and loyal to their friends and loves ones.
Something I really like of the male MCs is that they are not black and white. They are a mix of good and bad (predominately good in the end though),trustworthy, strong, loyal and they love completely.

I liked this book. After having mixed feelings about the first book in the series, The Beautiful Ashes, I had considered not reading this book. I decided to give it a try in the end and actually liked it more than the first book in the series. I do think that this is a series that needs to be read in order. This book picks up shortly after the events of the first book and is really a continuing story. I am very glad that I made the d ...more
THE SWEETEST BURN is the highly anticipated second book in the Broken Destiny series by Jeaniene Frost. It’s been three years since the first book in the series debuted so I was really wondering what happened to this series and if there was ever going to be a sequel. When I realized that we were finally going to get it, I jumped at the chance at reading it.
Now I would it’s important to read this series in order. Or, if you’re like me, to take the time to reread the first book again before j ...more

The Sweetest Burn is the 2nd installment in Jeaniene Frost’s New Adult fantasy series-Broken Destiny. Book one-Beautiful Ashes– introduced us to a multi-dimensional world filled with demons and angels preparing for war and the one person who can save us. Destiny and the Bible claims that Ivy, the last Davidian, is the only hope humans have to beat back the demons who are readying to inherit the world. She meets and falls in ...more
The Sweetest Burn leaves off a few months after The Beautiful Ashes ended. Ivy, her sister and a gargoyle disguised as a seagull are all living in Florida near the beach. Ivy is wondering what the heck has happened to Adrian, since he’s just disappeared from her life. Ivy is fuming mad ...more
It is different than I am used to and Ivy is a pretty kick-ass character.
I liked that this book didn’t start after book 1, sometimes not a lot but some has passed and I felt that brought more to the story by doing that than anything else really.
Adrian really steps up in this book and this is where I feel for the HERO finally. He showed Ivy he was all in and that part well it was my favorite hands down.
This book had just as much action as book 1 so there never ...more
It’s been about three years since the release of the first Broken Destiny book, so as excited as I was to read The Sweetest Burn, I was afraid I just wouldn’t be able to get into the story because it’d been so long since I was immersed in the Broken Destiny world. Thankfully, this didn’t happen – as soon as I opened up the first page of this long-awaited sequel, I was sucked back into this new(ish) world Jeaniene Frost created. It was almost as if I didn’t ...more
The world building in this story could be great. The premise is interesting enough. However, the execution makes the story come off as ridiculous as sparkling vampires should have been (though they weren't). The black diamond, soul tying and a few other things had ...more
I didn't like Ivy and Adrian's relationship last time and I'm ...more
This is a book filled with conflict and moral lessons. I liked it because the character is constantly in turmoil trying to decide what to do. Ivy is the last descendant of David. As the la ...more
Let me start out by saying that yes, you really should read the first book in the series. I don’t think you’d understand a lot of what was going on with the search Ivy and Adrian are on and you certainly wouldn’t feel the depth of the connections ...more
*Genre* Paranormal Romance
The Sweetest Burn is the second installment in author Jeaniene Frost's Broken Destiny series. 21-year old Ivy Jenkins is the protagonist of this series. It has been 5 months since Ivy learned that minions and demons really do exist. 3 years since The Beautiful Ashes was released, but hey, who's counting! A demon was responsible for killing Ivy's parents, and stealing her sister Jasmine away to a demon realm. Ivy has learned tha ...more
It's been so long since I read the first one that I forgot a bit of it but this book does a good job of refreshing points from the previous book but not taking up too much time with that. In the previous book Adrian did everything he could to stay away from Ivy because of h ...more
Very much looking forward to book three, because (view spoiler)[that epilogue = gut punch. (hide spoiler)] ...more
Anyways, I kind of didn't like this book at all. I can not stand the heroine. Ivy is a moron. She just found out about this whole other world 6ish months ago and she thinks she knows everything. She yells and tells like the head angel guy that ...more
I feel like Tavia Gilbert was in a race to read this one. The narration was way faster than it should've been. I checked my phone to make sure it wasn't set on a faster speed by mistake. I actually slowed it down to .75 speed and it still sounded like she was speed reading.
The story continues from the first book and this time it felt like a middle book. You know the book in a series that stretches things out to get you to the last book. I have to say I enjoyed the first book more ...more
Broken Destiny, Book 2
I Picked Up This Book Because: Continuing the series
Jasmine, Zack, Costa
Ivy is on her second hunt for a super powerful relic that will seal all the walls to the demonic realms. Demons and minions are fought, betrayals happen (not from Adrian, thank goodness), near death experiences, revelations upon revelations, soul tethering and smoking hot sex all ensue.
I liked this story ...more
Unfortunately, this was more of a 2.5 star read for me, a bit of a disappointment after I quite enjoyed the first book in the trilogy. Maybe the final ...more
Review at Books of My Heart: https://booksofmyheart.net/2017/09/09...
I listened to The Beautiful Ashes as a "reread" right before getting The Sweetest Burn. I was able to get both in digital audio from the library.
I was excited to see how they progressed with finding the second artifact. I expected Ivy and Adrian to learn and grow in their pursuit and to further their relationship as they worked together to save the world. These things sort of happened.
Neither Ivy or Adri ...more
**Upon a reread of this review, I realized I let some info slip. It's not a spoiler if you've already read book #1 but if you haven't read #1 then you might not want to read this review**
This was a pretty good story and addition to the series. This takes place a few months after the end of book #1. Adrian hasn't been around for that time and Ivy is all pissed off thinking he didn't mean what he said and had moved on. What she doesn't know is that someone else put a magical block on Ad ...more
