Title: The Trouble With Destiny
Author: Lauren Morrill
Publisher: Delacorte
Publication: December 8th 2015
Cover Rating: 4/5


This one time, at band camp... Oh man. If you like drama, semi-romance, reading about cruises and some good, old fashioned, rivalry, then you will probably like this book. I finished it in less than a day. It was very light, fluffy and cute. There was a lot of shenanigans, both good and bad. 

Liza is our protagonist. The first few pages she is this no nonsense, drum major who has everything planned out and scheduled and all it took was five seconds to turn her around entirely. And what caused the five second turn around you might ask? A boy. More specifically....

Lenny. This assbag... He seemed like he could have been such a good guy but he was entirely self absorbed and played games with peoples heads and hearts. A cute face isn't everything. Plus, why would you want a cute face that is attached to an assbag when you can have a cute face attached to a football player who has been nothing but nice to you?

Russ was sweet, kind, funny and overall just everything you normally don't find in a quarterback. Well, genuinely find. Most guys can fake anything. But Russ was actually a nice guy. He spends this entire cruise getting shat on by Liza, helping her out of stupid situations and all for what? NOTHING.

The entire book was basically about trying to win this contest so the band could be saved and Liza acting like a total buttwipe. Chasing the wrong guy, being horrible to her friends and losing focus of everything that was important to her. The she magically comes to her senses after being humiliated. Why did it have to come to that? You were chasing after some cute guy that you bonded with when you were twelve over that fact that your parents were both divorced. Yup, Liza, sounds like GREAT boyfriend material. 

The ending was perfect. And by perfect I mean unrealistic. It was nice and cute for the book to end so great but that just isnt how reality is. I still enjoyed the book but the ending made it even more of a fluffy read.

Overall, I gave the book 4/5 stars.

Release Day - December 1st 2015 Entangled Teen

Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...
 


Freedom comes at a cost...

Ella was genetically engineered to be the perfect pet—graceful, demure...and kept. In a daring move, she escaped her captivity and took refuge in Canada. But while she can think and act as she pleases, the life of a liberated pet is just as confining as the Congressman’s gilded cage. Her escape triggered a backlash, and now no one's safe, least 
of all the other pets. But she's trapped, unable to get back 
to Penn—the boy she loves—or help the girls who need her. 

Back in the United States, pets are turning up dead. With help from a very unexpected source, Ella slips deep into the dangerous black market, posing as a tarnished pet available to buy or sell. If she's lucky, she'll be able to rescue Penn and expose the truth about the breeding program. If she fails, Ella will pay not only with her life, but the lives 
of everyone she's tried to save...
