Oct 17, 2015 rated it it was amazing
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Ariana is 20 and is a survivor. She has survived foster homes and abusive foster parents. Currently she is working as a waitress in a bar. She has no real friends except for Matt, a guy she was once fostered with. They have a friendship but also a sexual history, sex without emotion.

Because of the way Ariana's life has been, she feels she ruins everyone's life. She feels she can't get close to anyone because she loses eveyrthing and everyone.

5+ I'm lusting for Hadeon STARS!

Wow, motor mouth here doesn't know what to say! I honestly haven't ever ventured into a fantasy book! Paranormal and shifters, yes. Nothing like this.

We start the story with Ariana, living day to day just trying to survive after being in a foster home. She has no one except for her friend Matt, another foster she resided with. She has this overwhelming
need/lust for sex from males... anyone. Matt is who she turns to satisfy those urges but eventually he wants m

I received a copy of Lust Born in exchange for an honest review. To begin with I am not a fan of this genre. I find that it is usually written for teenage girls who don't understand love and often confuse obsession and possessiveness with love. But this book changed my mind. Not only is it exceptionally well written, the xharacters are deep and engaging. They have detailed and meaningful back stories that influence the way they interact with other characters. The two main characters share a love ...more

**NEW AUTHOR ALERT** This is the first book I have read by the author, it was a good story. This book was a little slow for me in the beginning but the more I read the more I got into the story. This for me is a fantasy book and new things that I wouldn't of thought to read about. The plot starts from beginning and stays till the end. The connection between the two you will be able to feel from the start and you'll have different emotions that will run.

Ariana's life hasn't been easy on her and

This is a fantasy where a "normal" young woman's life is changed entirely by the appearance of a book.
Ariana grew up in the Foster care system with all the trauma that can bring. She is broke and struggling to pay her rent. Limping through her shift as a waitress she meets just about the sexiest and most maddening man she has ever seen. She doesn't know whether to punch him or f**k him.
When the weird things start happening there is only one person to turn to.
Hadeon has been sent to the area f

Let me just start by saying that Jacquie Underdown is an excellent writer and A TRUE STORYTELLER. Her writing style is absolutely amazing and so vividly described that all fantasy elements played out in my mind as if I was in the middle of it all. All the characters/creatures are fascinating, engaging and well develop, but the connection and chemistry between the two main characters is beautiful and very palpable. This is an adult fantasy genre, and even though as a fantasy, was very believable. ...more

Enjoyed the book to the core. Starting from characterization to the story portrayal, the book is justified according to the story line till the end throughout. Super satisfying read. Loved it. Surely recommendable. Thank you.

I got this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.. MAN am I glad to be back from a reading freeze. Two great books in a row.. MAN THIS BOOK IS HOT!! I honestly didn't think I would like this book from the description, but I wanted, no needed to read so I thought what the hell lets do this... I am so glad that I did.

Ariana had a horrible up bringing. She went to foster care to foster care, and finally was able to be on her own. She lives in a very shitty apartment where she can

Wow! It takes a brilliant imagination and a gift for story telling to write fantasy, and Jacquie Underdown has both in spades!! Such a clever read with twists and turns that kept me completely hooked. The chemistry between the characters was hot and flawless. I love when a man loves a woman, fights for her protects her with everything that he has, and I love when the woman is strong enough not to need it. (I've said love a lot, but I mean it) Ariana and Hadeon are addictive! Well done Jacquie on ...more

Ugh. I got to page 18/6% (which was painful as it was) and couldn’t stomach any more when the MC had casual sex with her ex-foster brother and then when he asked her to have a relationship with him, she said she couldn’t. Why? Because she needed sex like she needed breathing, but with zero commitment. Then she waltzes in to a skanky club the next day like nothing ever happened.

I suppose I shouldn’t suspected from the cover this book might be a little racier than other YAs, but I didn’t expect t

Expecting a magical story, I was slightly confused as the story began in the rather sleazy everyday world. In fact, I almost gave up, but I am glad that I persevered. Ariana had no one to turn to growing up and has been treated badly almost her whole life, so she has trust issues. Hadeon could be her protector or her worst nightmare, but she has to trust someone when life takes a totally unexpected turn. To me, part of the story read like a modern fairy-tale and had some unique magical touches. ...more
