Focus by Alyssa Rose Ivy



I was so excited to receive an eARC of Focus! I have truly fallen in love with this series and with Levi! I’m so happy that amazon recommended the first book in the series, Flight. If you haven't read Flight there is a review here. Here’s the description of Focus from goodreads:

Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

So here are some of the many reasons to fall in love with this series and specifically with Focus!

 Levi continues to be completely hot. Despite his “stupid” streak in which he tries to leave Allie in the dark. He shows his sweeter side in this sequel as he tries to win her back over. I do love that he never loses that confident edge despite trying to show Allie a softer side.

- We see more of the supporting characters! I actually fell a little in love with Jared in this book. Strange idea if you have read Flight but you really get to see a lot of interaction between the supporting characters.

- Allie is no pushover. She is strong and independent and doesn’t blindly overlook Levi’s faults. She challenges him to be better and doesn’t make it easy on him when he messes up.

- The storyline continues to evolve and change which keeps the series interesting. Going into a third installment after reading this second installment is just as exciting of a wait as it was for Focus. The curveball thrown at the end isn’t a cliffhanger but it has kept me preoccupied wondering what is going to happen next.

The Crescent Chronicles are a great read for anyone interested in the paranormal New Adult genre. I give this book a 5 and will be perched on the edge of my seat waiting for the next installment. The cover reveal will be on the 31st and I am very excited to take part in it!
