The New Adult August favorites that burned up my kindle were fast-paced reads that gave me a lot to think about. These heroes and heroines are much more than what they appear to be. From opposites, to hiding behind stereotypes, they prove the age-old saying, don’t judge a book by its cover.
Souls Unfractured by Tillie Cole is the story of Maddie and Flame. I’ve been waiting for this book and it was so worth the wait! Flame is part of the “psycho-trio” and he’s extremely twisted. Maddie is part of the original Cursed ones from her cult and has been slow to integrate into the outside world. Maddie and Flame need and help each other in forming better relationships with others and themselves. Their story is beautiful, poignant but extremely dark. Flame might seem like a twisted individual on the outside but he hides many mysteries that Maddie can only bring to light.
Better When He’s Brave by Jay Crownover is the story of good (and hot) cop Titus matched with Reeve, a girl who has lived on the wild side. Titus has always thought the world was black and white but Reeve destroys this manner of thinking. On the surface, Reeve is a criminal —she’s made these bad choices to avenge her sister. When Titus needs help bringing down the newest threat to the Point, Reeve is the last person he wants to depend on. However, Reeve is the key to stopping the threat and close quarters might prove there’s more than a spark there.
