Hey there guys!!
This Monday was release day for The Return, the spin-off series for the Covenant series, by Jennifer L Armentrout!!
As soon as it downloaded to my Kindle, I just had to read it, and you guys need to read it! Even if you haven't read the Covenant series, that I highly recommend!, you need to give this one a try! Seth is quite a character, he's both swoony, cocky and a bit annoying (or quite a bit, depending on who you ask!)!
The Return by Jennifer L Armentrout
The Fates are cackling their bony asses off...
It's been a year since Seth made the deal with the gods that pledged his life to them. And so far, the jobs they've given him have been violent and bloody--which is kind of all right with him. But now Apollo has something else in mind for Seth. He's got to play protector while keeping his hands and fingers off, and for someone who really has a problem with restraint, this new assignment might be the most challenging yet.
Josie has no idea what this crazy hot guy's deal might be, but it's a good bet that his arrival means the new life she started after leaving home is about to be thrown into an Olympian-sized blender turned up to puree. Either Josie is going insane or a nightmare straight out of ancient myth is gunning for her.
But it might be the unlikely attraction simmering between her and the golden-eyed, secret-keeping Seth that may prove to be the most dangerous thing of all.
Because history has once again been flipped to repeat.
And just in case you guys need some help deciding if you want to get it, or if you ought to start it already and ignore the rest of the TBR pile as I did... I have an excerpt to share with you all!!
"Shaking my head, I pivoted around and walked down the long hall to my dorm room. As I reached the door, the shiver was at the base of my spine again, dancing its way up until it traveled across my shoulders. My heart turned over heavily and I closed my eyes.
Twice in one day. Oh God. I’d never felt this more than once in any span of several days.
Swallowing hard, I wrapped my fingers around the doorknob, battling the urge to turn and scan the hall, because I knew no one would be there.
Dragging in a deep breath, I opened the door and stepped inside the room. My brows flew up, and I forgot about the feeling as I closed the door behind me.
Erin was sprawled on the floor, palms pressed down on a mat, her spandex-covered behind jutting up toward the sky. She turned her head, peering at me from under her armpit.
“How in the world do you get your neck to bend like that without killing yourself?” I asked.
Erin did yoga and meditation religiously, saying it helped merge her yin and yang together or something. She’d once told me she had a hell of a mean streak, and contorting herself into painful-looking positions helped keep “good vibrations” around her. Which was strange, because I’d never seen Erin lose her temper in the two years I’d known her.
Erin unfolded herself from some kind of downward dog or upward pony and grinned at me. “Check under the bed.”
Curious, I dropped my bag and stepped over her legs. Bending down, I lifted the bedspread and my eyes grew to the size of saucers when I spotted the bottle. I snatched it up and clutched it to my chest as I whipped toward her. “José!”
Her grin spread into a smile. “The best boyfriend ever.”"

I haven't read the Covenant series but I have the first one. I loved her contemporary books and the Lux series too. Can't wait to read this one!ReplyDelete
The Covenant series were the first books I read and loved! So this return was both fun and sweet!Delete

Thank you sweetie! I hope you'll enjoy this one if and when you read it!Delete
I read the first book in the Covenant series a while ago, but I wasn't too crazy about because it reminded me a hell of a lot of Vampire Academy... the similarities were just crazy! BUT seeing as how I am the mythology nut that I am, I may have to give it another chance ;)ReplyDelete
I guess it was good for me that I haven't read VA yet! And yes, this one will count towards my mythology challenge for once! =DDelete

Thanks for sharing, Pili! As soon as I get around to finished the Covenant series, I will be ALL over this ;)ReplyDelete
You do that! Seth's story is very much worth reading, Jessica, and I am an Aiden girl through and through!Delete
