Stalked by Flames by Susan Illene
1 star - Did Not Finish
I really could not get into this book. I ended up with a DNF. I was really hoping to find a good dragon book but those are hard to come by.
On a positive note, the cover is pretty cool. It definitely is what drew my attention.
I received this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Can't Forget by Colleen Myers
I loved this book. I really enjoyed the first one and this was a great addition. Beta has to go through a lot of emotional pain that really sucks you in. The loss of a loved one is extremely difficult and It was captured so well.
Beta's relationship with Marin is great. I was always a fan of him over Finn. I always felt that the relationship between Beta and Finn was too rushed in Must Remember and that Marin is the better choice for Beta. I am not a fan of the love triangle though. That feels like more a YA trope that really should be avoided in this kind of book.
I also felt the ending was a bit rushed. We didn't get to learn too much about Beta's friends that she found and the overall battle seemed to come out of no where. I was very confused during the battle as it wasn't drawn out. It just seemed like we could have had more details and not have had everything so rushed when the rest of the book was so well fleshed out. It's a major reason why I docked a star.
The difficulties the Fost face and the choices Beta makes are definitely well worth the read. It's so engaging. We get so a sort of cliff hanger and I can't wait until the next one!
