The Sweetest Burn brings a gotta-save-the-day-paced plot, a great dose of the supernatural, and chemistry that sparks. All of those elements are practically expected in a Jeaniene Frost book at this point. She’s the woman who brought us Cat and Bones, Vlad and Leila, after all.

What makes The Sweetest Burn’s Ivy and Adrian’s relationship so remarkable is the way each character’s internal conflict about their relationship fuels the delicious will they won’t they. Ivy is destined to fall in love with Adrian. Adrian is destined to betray her in the ultimate way—the kind that is supposed to leave Ivy dead. They both know these facts. It’s more than a Capulet/Montague thing. This isn’t families warring. It’s Heaven and Hell. Their free will may let them avoid fate, but how can they trust each other?
