Favorite Quote: "No one ever said my name the way she did. My last name, on her lips, during love like this, was a prayer, a whispered plea and a term of unfathomable endearment."Life has been good for Roth and Kyrie. Until it isn't. The past always comes back calling even if your bought you tied up all your loose ends. Roth's past is calling, and he wasn't given a choice about answering. Gone. Roth is Gone, and all that Kyrie has to go on it a note left in his place. I am attempting to leave this review spoiler free, but since the synopsis gives you very little, I am treading lightly as well. With Roth kidnapped, Kyrie is on the hunt. She may not know much about his past, or the things you need to survive in it, but she will learn, and fast. This novel is about survival. How long can you survive, and what will you do to ensure you don't completely shatter yourself in the process. Roth and Kyrie have been to the depths and back with each other and with a journey like that there is darkness to overcome. Jasinda WOWS again with this novel. I was a huge fan of Alpha and about jumped over the moon when I heard that Jasinda was giving us another novel in this universe. A novel that literally has you on your toes with anticipation and suspense from cover to cover. Roth and Kyrie are one of those couples that you can't help but want to know more about. This novel wrecks havoc on your emotions and solidifies your addiction to this world and its characters. Is it to early to start begging for a third novel?
Pretty sure "Jasinda" should be made into catch phrase! I would use it like this: "I am about to Jasinda the hell out of you" and would mean "I am about to shock/excite/entice the hell out of you" FLAT OUT!
Beta is an amazing follow-up to Alpha. I was honored to receive an ARC of Beta by Jasinda and dove into it right away. Excitement flooded my veins just imagining what Roth was up to. I knew 100% Kyrie and Roth would be seriously entertaining, but I was not at all ready for what transpired in this fantastic book.
Kyrie and Roth are totally living the life. Sailing around on cruise ships, traveling via private jets, dining and romancing in ports and cities all over the world. To me, this sounds like a fairy tale! But knowing Roth's crazy past I should have seen something coming. I should have known that my world was going to be rocked and somehow I was shocked by this book.
Everything I normally steer clear of in a book, this book had, and Jasinda made me crave it. Kyrie turned into tough girl, beast mode, and I wanted to BE her. Roth turned inward and was almost boy like, almost nervous and unsure of himself.
I loved the additional back story Beta provided to Roth's earlier life. I loved that Kyrie's strength was showcased in Beta. I love the fact that Jasinda can produced absolutely killer material every.single.time.
