The Reluctant Sacrifice ( The Aramithians, #1) by Kerr-Ann Dempster

TRS.jpg
Synopsis
Centuries ago, sibling rivalry tore Aramith apart. As punishment, the losers were stripped of their immortal birthright and banished to Earth. There, they wasted away from old age and diseases. However, there is hope…
If a Shaw child, born on the 12th day of the 12th month offers her soul in a public sacrifice, then the exiles will be forgiven and welcomed home to Aramith.
Aubrey Shaw is that child, but dying for the exiles is not on her to-do list. Using her gift as a Jumper, Aubrey leaps between bodies to escape relentless shape-shifting hunters. Only, shedding her skin is not enough. Not when Joshua, her best-friend-turned-hunter, is hell-bent on dragging her to the altar.
Will Aubrey’s love for Joshua change his mind?
Or, will she have to trust the scarred stranger who shows up out of the blue cloaked in lies and secrets? Doing so means giving up on Joshua. But betting on Joshua's love could do more than break her heart.
It could kill her.
My Review

*A complimentary ecopy was given by the Author in exchange for my honest review.*

Let's start off with what I liked, which was everything!! This story was so refreshing for me, mostly because the story was SO different from all I've read. And when that element is in the equation, well, I'm just full of joy and giddyness and in return, has me totally fangirling!! The Reluctant Sacrifice is about a girl who's been chosen, by her own people,(Oh, yea, they're not from Earth.) to be a sacrifice to save them all, and restore balance on their home world. Only, she's been on the run for a while now, as we see when we start this story, the love of her, so called, life has turned on her and is now just using her to advance his own ends. Her main goal is to keep away from the altar. She's got help but will it be enough? I probably forgot to mention that they all have...gifts? Talents? Our main character is known as a Jumper. I think my favorite scene would have to be at the cabin, where Aubrey was talking to Mr. Dwyer. I'm not one for spoilers but I truly and seriously thought all hope was lost until the very end...so I'll leave with this...I loved how this story was full of humor, emotion, romance, and straight-up awesomeness. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is a lover of a good story.

#BlogTour: STORMING THE CASTLE by Arianna Hart

About the Book

Sam Castleton has fame, houses all over the world, and one really big problem—he’s got an album due and he can’t write. All he wants is a quiet place to get his head straight. Dale, Georgia, seems like the perfect quiet spot to try to hear the music again and get some lyrics down on paper.

With her daughter’s paternal grandparents making a sudden appearance and the difficulties of running her own lodge and being a single mom, Faith Adams doesn’t have the time to worry about the mysterious stranger staying in one of her cottages, no matter how sexy he is.
Her newest guest may be surly, but his money is good, so she’s willing to overlook his surly nature. If only she could ignore the way he awakens a searing hunger in her...


Excerpt
Faith finally gave up trying to sleep at five in the morning. She’d tossed and turned all night, reliving the kiss and imagining what she could have done differently. 

The pull of attraction had been there through the whole meal, but she’d thought s…
