Also by this author: Chasing Hayleigh, An Unexpected Claim
I’ve lived in shadows all of my life Feeling empty, but never knowing what I was truly missing I’ve been taught to hide my talents and be invisible Until Kendrix walks into my life and sees me. All of me. I know he is my destiny, but he is holding himself back There is something he isn’t telling me I’m afraid when the truth comes out, it will tear us apart
I made a choice to give up my soul and forever alter my destiny I embraced abilities that I’d kept hidden But they don’t make up for what I’ve lost It seems a cruel trick of Fate that I finally met the one who was meant to be mine And yet, I can never have her My job is to deceive Alysia and ultimately, to give her up But the darkness calls to me Tempting me to hide in the shadows with her forever

If you like PNR, The Fae Guard series is a great one! What Christensen has created is unique and I really appreciate that in the world of PNR! Saving Kendrix can be read as a stand alone if you choose, but the entire series is so good I don’t think you would want to jump in with book 4!
Kendrix has had a rough go of life leading up to where this book picks up. He has chosen to fall in order to complete a mission that will save the Fae. Then, he meets his soul mate, Alysia and he realizes he will never get the HEA he dreams of because he is fallen. The book centers around his struggle to fight his feelings and do his job, or say to hell with the job and run away with Alysia. The relationship between these two is really well written for fated mates and because you have some forewarning from Fate that it doesn’t end well for Kendrix, its all that much more tragic as you read.
I will say that there was an issue with the book that bothered me. The characters are constantly having little dialogues with themselves inside their heads. I found it REALLY annoying after awhile. Maybe its just me and it won’t bother anyone else. Heck, other people might not even notice it, but it really made the book feel immature for me at times. Both characters do it frequently so maybe I was more annoyed at the overuse of this writing tactic. Either way, it got old really fast!

The Deathless Night series by L.E. Wilson, The Bewitched and Bewildered Series by Alanea Alder, The Dark Ones by Rachel Van Dyken…then you will probably like Saving Kendrix!
I’m a lover of all things books, a hopeless romantic, and have always had a passion for writing. Between being a sappy romantic, my love of an HEA, my crazy imagination, and ok, let’s be real, my dirty mind, I fell easily into writing romance.
I’m a huge baseball fan and yet, a complete girly, girl. I’m an obsessive reader and have a slight (hahaha! Slight? Yeah, right) addiction to signed books.
I’m married to my very own book boyfriend, an alpha male with a sexy, sweet side. He is the best inspiration, my biggest supporter, and the love of my life. He is also incredibly patient and understanding about the fact that he has to fight the voices in my head for my attention.
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoyed writing them!

Those covers really don’t scream PNR! Haha! They look like cozy small-town winter romance series.
It sounds like a good series though despite the issues you had with the writing at times.
So true!! But, the series is very PNR. Her covers are so eye catching though!
