Being the face of Timber, the new, popular dating app, is a lot of pressure. Magnus Andersen is an absolutely gorgeous man who has everything, but love. He never imagined he would actually USE the app. He’s been a little scarred from his last relationship. Lucy, Avery’s older sister, is the epitome of scarred. The guy she thought she was building a life with, David, decided it wasn’t the life he wanted. After finding out she was pregnant, David takes off. Lucy has been everything to everyone, but now it’s about Lucy. She never thought she’d catch the eye of Magnus on Timber. Will the two of them find love or will this just be a fling?

This is another awesome book in this series. It was a nice continuation from Clipped. What was pretty cool about this one was there’s a scene towards the end of Clipped of Wes and Magnus (business rivals) interacting with each other. You see what happens before and after that scene from Lucy’s and Magnus’s point of view. Both characters are endearing. Lucy is a great mother and down-to-Earth. Magnus is surprisingly down-to-Earth as well and has a slight stutter; which is quite adorable. This is a great series, and I can’t wait to continue!

This title perfectly describes my feelings toward this series! I am completely obsessed! A spin-off and a standalone novel, Obsession follows the events leading up to Origin. You see how Hunter and Serena come into each other’s company. Everything you think you know about Arums and Luxens, forget it. What I love about Jennifer’s writing is it keeps you guessing. Just when you think you know who the bad guy is, there’s a twist. The twist is rarely ever the who, but the why. As you follow the Lux series, you find that not all Arums are bad, but not all Luxens are good. This story absolutely proves this.

Hunter is a bit of a jerk. When I say “a bit” I mean he’s a jerk. He’s not really a soft cuddly teddy bear, but he’s not unfeeling either. Like Daemon, he does have a middle ground. Serena is a strong character but has moments of questionable decisions; which leads you to be frustrated. I understood her reasoning, but I didn’t always agree with her logic. The interactions between Hunter and Serena were witty and engaging. While the series is described as “Young Adult”, this standalone is not and is not meant to be! If you ever wonder what Daemon would be like as an adult, imagine Hunter as a Luxen. Nothing but good times I tell ya! Oh, how I wish this was a separate series!
