Crush

Times Read: 1


Excerpt: "Everything feels off—especially me. I’ve returned to Katmere Academy, but I’m haunted by fragments of days I have no recollection of living and struggling to understand who, or what, I really am.



Just when I start to feel safe again, Hudson is back with a vengeance. He insists there are secrets I don’t know about, threatening to drive a wedge between Jaxon and me forever. But far worse enemies are at our doorstep.



The Circle is caught in a power play and the Vampire Court is trying to drag me out of my world and into theirs. The only thing Hudson and Jaxon agree on is that leaving Katmere would mean my certain death.



And not only am I fighting for my life, but now everyone else’s is at stake—unless we can defeat an unspeakable evil. All I know is that saving the people I love is going to require sacrifice.



Maybe more than I’m able to give."



My Rambles: The time timeline in this is so hard to follow. (aside from the months in stone) but just her being at the school, getting to know Hudson, less than a freaking week to get everything done, it was just too...long? like author says its short time but it aways felt longer, not just pacing but for how things happened. She couldn't "know" Hudson in the week it says he's in her head. (i know they were together for the time she was gone but still) Her not remembering anything also makes no sense. The mate thing is weirdly bothering me. She accepted way too fast. Like everything else. Don't get me wrong, I like mating bonds, this series just doesn't do them justice? Like the world building needs a lot of work. I kinda hate that she's so young getting two mating bonds (i know that Aelin/Feyre weren't much older but they feel it [not an excuse] idk I just can't fully place why this one bothers me as much as it does. Oh in terms of the world building the time frame is a tad confusing with the media references in childhood vs the teen media doesn't match to me.

Did not see Finn being gay, good for him (ruined that thought process of why chose). But! Totally saw it being Hudson really fast. Even faster after the notion from being randomly told you can have more than one/get a second chance mate. I don't think Jaxon and Grace were a good match to begin with but I am glad that he was willing to actually try. Find it odd that brother is also mate and that she had both bonds at once? like does that make the brothers mates too? how does that work? What is the full extent of how the bonds work??

Xavier's death was so pointless. I wish we wouldn't go down the whole "someone must die for character to have trauma" path that books have been doing lately. Though I know a lot of people are upset with everyone living cause "its not realistic" or that its "too happy". Idk, he death wasn't done right.

I do wish we had gotten to see/know what happened during the time 4 months though. I feel like Jaxon and Hudson are gonna fight over her and then Jaxon will try to force their bond back into place which will cause more fighting. And then I see a third bond cause why not feels very on track for this story so far.
