Things are not going to well for Sirantha Jax. Though she is madly in love with March and he reciprocates those feelings, there are still a lot of things that Sirantha has to deal with. First off, many still see her as dead, so now she needs to take on a new task in order to make some money because her funds her taken away upon her “death”. Secondly, she has people wanting to kill her and now, Sirantha is feeling the after-effects of jumping too much.

As the second book in the series, Ann Aguirre does a great job of recapping previous events for loyal fans and new readers alike. I found that her writing is always so smooth and articulate. I’m not usually a fan of first person POV however, I flew through this book because Sirantha is such a engaging character.

While I thought GRIMSPACE was a world wind of activity, I thought the first half of this book was a little slower in pace. It wasn’t slow per se, but just compared to Ann’s regular style, I felt that some parts lagged slightly more than others. However, the second half truly put the pedal to the metal and I devoured it completely.

Aguirre makes it extremely difficult to make you put down her books because she writes such tightly written scenes. I fear that if I blink, I may miss some of the action because a lot goes on. This is one of the series where you need to buy all the books first in order to have them on-hand and ready because once you flip that last page, you’re going to want to pick up the next book immediately.
I loved the tension between March and Jax because even though it broke my heart to read some of the scenes, I thought it also solidified the fact that these two are meant to me. Call me a sap, but I NEED THEM TO BE TOGETHER!!!

WANDERLUST turned out to be more than I excited. With heartbreak, pulse-pounding action and suspense, you’ve got a read that will have you panting for more!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
