With her freedom stolen from her by the Father, Tegan had never lived a life of her own. Whisked away to be a bound human to Lucius, she never knew what it was like to have a mate to love and cherish her. Now after losing three hundred years of memories, Tegan needs to rediscover everything she’s worked for and learn every lesson again, but this time something is different. Kaden claims that he is her fated mate.

The reason for Kaden’s exile from the Demon world is no secret: he beheaded his own king. The one thing that makes his exile bearable is being close to Tegan. When Tegan returns he knows he finally has his chance to make her his, but two people stand in his way: Lucius and Tegan’s brother, Zaaren.

The war rages on. With the rumor that someone has raised the Father and the Originals showing signs of waking, the bloodshed will only get worse.
Well now! Things are really getting exciting in this one. Tegan has returned, but her memories have been royally messed with by the evil vamps. So she's starting with a sort of fresh slate. Imagine how foreign everything is to her - it would scare the crap out of me!!

Once again Kessler has managed to merge an urban fantasy style story with romance perfectly. We have our story arc that carries over book to book, bringing the world closer and closer to an apocalypse style war with every page. But we also get some incredibly sweet moments watching two people fall in love no matter how awful everything may be around them.

Kaden has known he was meant for Tegan for years...well centuries actually. He has faithfully watched over her from the shadows doing what he could to protect her. The care he took with her was so touching and sweet. It made me want to give them both really big hugs - but they both would have slapped me for it I bet. Love, betrayal, loyalty, redemption, and a scary monster dude who is the Father of vampires - there's a little bit of it all in this story and it will leave you wanting more.

We also get to meet Zaaren, Tegan's brother, who is a complete *word I won't use here - use your imagination - be creative with the insults*. I hear there is a reason for his "attitude" and I need to read the short stories to find out why. So I guess I know what I'll be buying next!

*This book was received free in exchange for an honest review - and because I begged the author nicely*

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
