The Sweetest Burn (A Broken Destiny Novel #2)

By Jeaniene Frost


Conquering a supernatural realm turned out to be easier than getting over a broken heart. But her initial victory has made Ivy a target for revenge, forcing her to reunite with the dangerous—and dangerously sexy—Adrian. Ivy isn’t sure which will be harder: finding the hallowed weapon that will repair the crumbling walls between the demon and human realms, or resisting Adrian, who’s decided that come hell or high water, he will make Ivy his.

At first, Adrian tried to resist his feelings for Ivy. Now, determined to break the curse that dooms their love, he’s vowed to save her and to have her. If only he can persuade her to forgive his past sins. But defying destiny—and surrendering to the smoldering desire between them—will bring consequences and sacrifices they never imagined…


In this second novel of A Broken Destiny series, we find Ivy is looking for Brutus.  He hasn’t come home yet and it is almost dawn.  While looking for him, she manages to find a demon gateway on the beach.  With demons coming through to this plane.  She is on the run and guess who saves her, Adrian.  Ivy is blown away by having him back but she isn’t going to make it easy for him.

The Sweetest Burn is a fantastic follow up to Beautiful Ashes.  In this second book we see that Ivy is different now.  She is no longer naive to the world.  Ivy now knows that demons and Archons are real and they are at war.  She knows her lineage and what her destiny is.  But she also knows Adrian’s destiny and they are focused on changing it.

In this second book, I saw Zach in a new light (especially near the end). Jasmine and Costa are finding their roles in this new reality.  And secrets about Adrian are revealed.  Adrian must prove to Ivy that he has decided to fight his destiny.  Ivy doesn’t know how to deal with him.  She has feelings for him but they have a huge task in front of them and the human plane hangs in the balance.

I really enjoyed the dynamics of this relationship.  They had so much thrown at them.  Everyone is against them, even their destinies are against them.  In parts, it almost has a Romeo and Juliet feel to the story.  I also loved Zach’s role in this story.  He really makes you think about Angels and how they consider us humans.

There is so much action, emotion and mystery in this story.  And a grumpy gargoyle. (I will never look at a seagull the same). I can’t wait for book three!!!
