2bdf5-ame8922-bnHell is looking for a way to break loose…

Jax lost the genetic lottery. Descended from Cain, the world’s first murderer, he’s plagued by a curse that demands violence in exchange for his happiness. He left everything behind, including the girl he loved, but thriving on the pain of others is lonely… And it’s killing him.

After a series of heartbreaking losses, Samantha put rubber to pavement and headed for college as fast as her clunker could carry her. But she can’t outrun her problems. When an attack at school drives her back home, she’s thrown into the path of a past—and a guy—she’s been trying to forget.

Sam strains Jax’s control over his darkness, but running isn’t an option this time. Someone—or, something—followed her home from school: a ruthless monster with a twisted plan centuries in the making. Forced together to survive, and fighting an attraction that could destroy them both, Jax and Sam must stop a killer bent on revenge.

My Thoughts

Jus has done it again…..

oops i did it again photo: oops i did it again oops.gif

Jus has created an awesome storyline and amazing (I mean hawt!) characters that I have fallen completely in love with! As I expected, I was done for after the first chapter and sucked into the world of Cain & Abel.

An awesome storyline….

The descendents of Cain & Abel. This makes for an exciting read! Jus kept me on my toes trying to figure out the who done it! It was intriguing the way that she had incoorporated the “demons” into the story.

I do not care if Jax has a demon….

I really want a Jax for myself! I really felt for this character and all that he has to deal with on a daily basis just to keep his “inner demon” in check! The two brothers, Jax and Chase, were different in so many ways and yet alike in so many other. While Jax is willing to lose everything for the ones he loves, Chase just seemed very selfish to me by trying to hold on and not willing to fight. But, on the other hand, they both were very sorrowful for the things that they had to do in order to stay alive and sane!

Samantha is a fighter…..

OMG! I loved her! She was snarky at times, and full of sass! Jax had no idea of what to do with her sometimes because she pushed all of his buttons with a single look. She knew that she was playing with fire, but she was tired of sitting around and hoping/wanting. So, at times, she took matters into her own hands!

The ending was sad for me:(

That ending! Grrr! Jus! You dropped a bomb just when I thought that things were going to be okay with Jax and Sam! I sat and re-read that last few paragraphs over again and insisted that I was missing something cuz that could not possibly be correct???

In Conclusion….

Jus is always on my radar! Any book that she writes, I HAVE to read! I can add this book to the favorites list! I beleive that this was Jus’s first time with New Adult and in my opinion, she did a fantastic job! Can’t wait for the next book in the series!!!

Oh!! and if you are fan of Jus’s just like me….There is going to be more of the Denazen series! I honestly thought that book 3 was the last but, I just saw at least 2 more!!!
