Blurb (from Goodreads):


My mother was right to fear me.
I’m an abomination.
And the world should be very afraid.

Sadie has been kidnapped by the Tor, the vindictive alien race who destroyed Thalassic City. As her past, present, and future collides, her worst nightmare looks set to become her shocking new reality.

A deliberate pawn in leader Griselda’s vengeful game, Sadie is horrified to learn the truth about her heritage and the destiny that’s already been mapped out for her. Refusing to cooperate, she risks paying the ultimate price for her defiance.

Love for Logan is her only motivation to stay alive. Saving him is the only thing that matters—the fate of the world depends upon it. While he may never forgive her, she’s determined to protect him. Until her dying breath.

Note from the author:

This continues the story from where it ended in Saven Disclosure. This is not an optional novella but an essential read if you don’t want to miss out on important plot developments. Please note there is a cliffhanger and it is not a standalone story. You will need to continue the series to find out what is next in store for Sadie and Logan.


“I’m terrified of learning the truth. About my mission. About Axton. About who I really am, and what I’m capable of doing. I’d rather stay in denial. Because if there’s one thing I’m certain of, it’s that I’m not going to like the truth of my apparent new reality.”


This book… I don’t what to say! But it was pretty damn explosive. This book is extremely necessary to read in this series if you want to proceed to the next one. I mean you would naturally want to because it ends with a massive cliffhanger which had me shouting WHAT!! in a loop!

Sadie has been kidnapped by the Tor where she learns a horrifying truth about herself. Can she save Logan in time? Most of all, can she save herself, at all?

This book was a whirlwind. We learned a lot of truth about Sadie and her past and her essential role in all this alien matter. Griselda, the head of the Tor was a freaking nutcase, I must say, because she was hell bent on revenge when everybody else wanted peace. And the one thing that kind of freaked me was Axton. And I really, really wish what he said about Sadie and him was false because eeeh.. I don’t know what else to think but I definitely don’t want him anywhere near Sadie though how much he claims he loves her. Nonetheless, I’m interested to find out more about that guy.

Nonetheless, I absolutely loved how everything was executed. Twists after twists kept on coming and some pretty big secrets were revealed which totally caught me off guard. Though I liked how Sadie handled things though she didn’t think much before doing anything. But it was still justifiable because she was in a totally confused mess and I could totally feel for her, especially after she discovered the truth about herself. And that ending!! My God! I mean, how? Why? I am dying to know what happens next but I’m definitely still team Logan!

Overall, Saven Denial was a great read. It was fast paced and it kept me hooked from the very first page. The plot was… once again I have to say explosive and pretty damn engaging. The writing was smooth. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book!

Recommend it?

Blurb (from Goodreads):

Willow Monroe and Kennedy Danes have been best friends since drawings were assignments in school. They’ve been joined at the hip for years. They love riding bikes together, smiling for real, and laughing, even at the wrong times.

Once their senior year of high school rolls around, Kennedy becomes terminally ill. Though he has plans that don’t involve sadness, he still needs to find a way to tell Willow he only has six more months to live.

Willow and Kennedy can never say the word ‘goodbye’.They have this agreement to say Hello up until their last time spent together. The sixteenth of August in the year of 1997 is when Willow and Kennedy say Hello for the last time.

Nine years later finds Willow in the smallest hospital of Chicago, working as a registered nurse. There she meets Wyatt Blanquette, a curmudgeonly patient with untapped wisdom and heart, beneath a stony exterior. When they agree to be nice to each other instead of abundantly rude, Wyatt eventually shows the fact that he sees a light in Willow that cannot burn out. Everything changes once Wyatt reveals to Willow his heart-wrenching secret.

Willow’s thoughts bicker, and she has to determine whether she should suppress the feelings she’s afraid of reliving, or to let them be seen- with her heart wide open.


Our Last Time was a different kind of read but I definitely liked it. I loved the relationship between the characters and how everything was executed.

Willow and Kennedy has been best friends since forever. But as their time for graduation comes around, Kennedy’s cancer comes back which leaves both of them heartbroken. They promised never to say goodbye to each other, so they finally say hello on 16th August, 1997. Nine years later, Willow is working as a nurse in a small hospital in Chicago where she meets Wyatt Blanquette, a patient who loves to test her patience. As they finally form a truce, they both can’t deny the chemistry between them but when Wyatt reveals his secret, can they go forward together or will history repeat itself?

I liked the manner in which the story was narrated. The chapters alternated between Willow’s present life and her past. I loved Willow and Kennedy together, they were best friends and had eyes only for each other. They spend every waking moment together and when Kennedy revealed that his illness had come back, it broke their hearts but they somehow managed to pull through but Willow never found someone who could truly make her happy like Kennedy until she met Wyatt.

I pretty much liked all the characters in the book. Kennedy was a sweetheart and Willow was a nice character as well. As much as I loved them together, I felt the chemistry was lacking between Willow and Wyatt. We got to see the beginning of their relationship but I would have liked if we actually got to see more of it, especially how Wyatt becomes a part of Willow and her daughter’s life.

Overall, Our Last Time was a nice read. The plot was executed neatly and I liked the characters. Though I liked the romance between Willow and Wyatt, I was not hundred percent convinced. Nonetheless, I have to say I enjoyed the ride. The writing was simple and smooth and the pace was even throughout the book.
