{Cover Reveal} Raging Rival Hearts by Olivia Wildenstein

Title: Raging Rival Hearts (The Lost Clan #4)
Author: Olivia Wildenstein
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal
Add To: Goodreads

Raging Rival Hearts is a spinoff told from Lily's point of view.

Breaking my engagement to the man I had loved my entire life was a dangerous move, one that got me expelled from the faerie isle. I’d known the risks, though. I’d known that if Cruz, Cat or my brother didn’t find a way to get me home, the fire in my veins would dwindle until it was gone, and with it my life.

Months slid by, and still nothing. With mere weeks left to live, I set out on a last adventure: discover if more Daneelies had survived the massacre, the same way Catori’s ancestor had. Although I’d decided to go alone, Kajika insisted on accompanying me.

I wanted to believe he was coming because he liked me. But I was still the enemy…the mute girl whom he could hear speak when no one else could…the one person who could track him when he didn’t want to be found.
Perfect for fans of The Mortal Instruments and The Vampire Diaries.

June wrap-up & July TBR

Greetings fellow Zombabes! Yeah I know I'm forever late with this but I was wondering if I should even do a wrap up because... well... I didn't read a damn thing in June! Lol. Well, I did, but I'm still reading the book (yes, still IT) but I thought, eh why not. I have a couple of books I would like to read for July. If I can or will is a different story.
