What a ride! While this book isn’t my favorite of the series so far, it is still great! What can I say? I love Pete McKay with all my heart, so it’s obvious that i’d love the first book above all others. Roman comes darn close in that department so….. Every time I read a new book, I still think about it until I can get my hands on the next one. This one is no exception and if the author wants me to stay sane, I suggest not making me wait for the next one too long. Just kidding…..

This story is all about Tyler and Missy. If you read the last book, Missy was introduced there. My heart hurts for her and what she has been through. It takes a beefy, yet kind, rebel named Tyler to get her back to her old self. Well, not entirely, but she does let up on the jumpiness around men. She is sent in undercover to the “General’s” camp to gather info and rescue Tyler before something worse happens. She goes in as a nurse and is assigned drawing blood from the “patients” and also delivering their meals. One look at Tyler and she knows that he has already begun treatments and now has no clear memory of her. One particular side effect of his treatment is his obvious possessiveness of Missy at first glance, or maybe his mind knows that he knows her. From there he demands that she stay with him at all times or he doesn’t fight. The doctor sees this as a win win situation and has no regards for Missy’s safety, as she is a worker there. Anything to get the big Scotsman to cooperate. The story takes off from there and Tyler and Missy grow even closer as he slowly regains his memory of her and their friends.

The action and suspense had me on the edge of my seat. Janelle really knows how to capture her readers attentions. The romance, as always, is written well. It’s not forced and insta-lovey like some stories tend to be. The world building is great and I love how she describes her characters. That being said, I am definitely waiting on the next book. Phoenix and Trent? Yes please!! Those two are so sarcastic and just bad-a**! That love/hate thing those two have going on is hilarious. Phoenix, being the hot-head that she is, should have stayed at home. The action and suspense just keeps getting better and better. If you love Dystopia/ Post-Apocalyptic, then you will definitely love this series. It’s NA, so this isn’t for young readers. I definitely recommend this book!

Waiting On Wednesday #4: Tested (New World #3) by Janelle Stalder

new-wow

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It showcases books that we are looking forward to reading. My book this week, it’s cover yet to be revealed, is Tested (New World #3) by Janelle Stalder. I’ve already devoured the first two books in the series, 17840598 Switch (New World #1), read my review HERE; and Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000039_00005] Masked (New World #2), read my review HERE. This is a NA/Dystopia series, and is very addicting. I love the world that Janelle has created, and each book is centered around a particular person or persons as the case may be. 

A brief blurb from book 1: Two thirds of the world population has been wiped out, devastated by the worst war the earth has ever seen. Standing among the ruins is a mind reader who finds herself on the wrong side of the war. Everyone does what they must in order to survive. When the rebels bent on bringing down the New World leader start to rise up, it is her job to make sure they stay down where they belong. That is, until one rebel sneaks past her defenses and into her heart. Love will blossom from the ashes, but will it be enough to save them, or will it mean the end of them both?

*These books are for mature audiences due to sexual situations, violence and strong language.*

Tested will be released on June 24, 2014.
