I love a good friends became lovers, but sometimes the ending is not really what I expected and this book fell in this category. I liked parts of the story and the plot for the series was really good, but I think the ending could be a bit better.
Nick is really fun and I enjoyed the fact he has a sweet tooth with working on his family business. But I could see that he’s really royal and it’s kinda nice to see a story centered on friends that really work well together and have always thought of being more but were afraid of the what if?
Theresa is a good girl and is afraid of a big commitment between them because she lost her family and is kinda worried about losing him too. But a baby was a nice improvement to these two. Since both wanted and Nick is actually good with kids but just doesn’t want a relationship because of some traumas with his parents.
The end was a bit disappointing, but didn’t throw me of the book completely, since I enjoyed the family and the grandpa story.

Review: Crimson Frost by Jennifer Estep

Crimson Frost (Mythos Academy, #4)Title: Crimson Frost
Author:  Jennifer Estep
Series: Mythos Academy

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes—the most hideous face I’d ever seen. No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki—the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.

I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.

I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison—and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself…

There’s a great part of me that just loves this series and I don’t know if it’s because of Gwen or the mythology, but each new book brings a new world full of mysteries to be solved and of course a battle to save the world.
I’m always expecting Gwen to save everyone and try for once to have a normal day without all this crazy attacks for the reapers. Some people might think it’s selfish of her to just want a normal outing with her new boo, but she’s just a teenager fighting the evil and trying to survive another day.
This book was different than the others, but mostly because now Loki is free and Gwen must discover what to do and actually kill him, not the simplest fact of them all. But I loved this book just as much as the others and there’s not a bad thing I could tell about it.
I don’t want to spoiler everyone, but Gwen is fighting with people’s thought and frustrated trying to discover Loki’s steps to control the world again. Not much!
