Review: Focus by Alyssa Rose Ivy



Bookish Details:
Series: The Crescent Chronicles #2
Release Date: January 23rd 2013
Buy It From: Amazon US - Amazon UK


Goodreads Synopsis:
Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she's with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

Book Two of The Crescent Chronicles.


My Review: 

First of all, I’d like to thank Alyssa for giving me the chance to review Focus, her books are always fabulous!

Focus picks up a little while after we left off in Flight. Allie and Hailey are moving into college and attempting to settle into a normal, campus life. But, of course, Allie’s life is far from normal now and having Pterons escort her to every class reminds her. 

After adoring Flight, I had high expectations for Focus. I wasn’t disappointed. Allie is such a fantastic character. I like female characters that are strong and can stand up for themselves and Allie is definitely that. I also love her friendship with Hailey and their two new college friends, Anne and Tiffany. Every good leading lady needs her girlfriends!

Levi was as perfect as ever in Focus. He is definitely on my list of book boyfriends, that’s for sure! For the most part of Focus, Levi is attempting to win back Allie’s affections after the shocking twist that happened in Flight. But of course, Levi is irresistible, so how can Allie hold off his charms? 

I really liked the family dynamics that run through the plot of Focus. Not only do we get to find out more about Levi and his family, but we also get a little bit of Hailey and Owen’s family, as well as Jared’s.

I also enjoyed reading more about Jared in this book. I’m really intrigued by his character and I hope we get to find out a bit more about him and his family. I like how a friendship between him and Allie developed. 

Now, I loved the lead up to the ending of the book. It sets up a perfect plot twist that I definitely didn’t expect! I’m highly anticipating the third book to see what the heck happens next! 

This series has a bit of everything I love in a supernatural story. Focus will totally keep you reading into the night and if you haven’t started this series yet, I suggest you get reading Flight, because it is not to be missed!

Book Boyfriends

So, Valentine's day is upon, and I plan on spending the day with the love of my life. My bookshelf.

Yep.

You can't beat a good book boyfriend. Those characters that make you swoon and put the book down for a moment so that you can recover from their awesomeness. Every avid reader has that one (or in my case, many) character that they would happily lock up in their basement if they were really. That's not creepy, right??

I'm going to highlight just a few of the fictional characters that unleash my inner fangirl. Here are my top three Book Boyfriends:


3. Zachary Goode from the Gallagher Girls series. 
Who wouldn't want a super hot, super secret spy as their boyfriend? Zach is one of the most adorable fictional guys and he funny, too. Killer combination. His introduction into the Gallagher Girls series was perfect and he has become one of my most beloved characters. 






2. Jace Wayland from The Mortal Instruments.
I could talk all day about what makes Jace a swoon-worthy guy, I really could. I love his sarcasm and his arrogance, but I also love his sweet, protective side that he shows when he's with Clary. He's a wild child and there's never a dull moment where he's concerned. I love him even more now that he's going to be portrayed by Jamie Campbell Bower. 







1. Jesse de Silva from The Mediator Series
My all time favorite. If I'm honest, I don't think any other fictional character could come close. Jesse was my first fictional love and will probably remain in the top spot on my list of Book Boyfriends. If you don't think a super hot, Spanish ghost haunting your bedroom isn't the best thing ever, then I'm sending you to a doctor. 





Do you know how difficult it was for me to pick just three? Who are your top fictional boyfriends? Let me know!
