The Struggle by Jennifer Armentrout

Wednesday, April 5th 2017

I love Seth! I love The Covenant series by Jennifer L. Armentrout but I have to admit I really hate the cover. I remember seeing the cover for Jennifer L. Armentrout’s “ The Struggle” when it was revealed in the halls of Romantic Times 2016 Los Vegas connection. I hated it then, I continue to hate it now. The cover models nor the amount of Adobe Photoshop have capture the essences of what the characters look like in the description of the authors own words. The Covenant and the Titan series continuously speak about Seth facial features being classically handsome, as if his face was carved in marvel by the Gods themselves.Then you have the modern beauty of Josie, who has a rich mixture of brown and blonde hair that it almost looks like every color of a sun rise or sunset. The cover of The Struggle? The cover of the novel doe snot reflects any of the characters descriptions nor the classic romantic beauty of Seth and Josie’s relationship. Plus, I have to ask why is Andrew “Drew” Leighty, shirtless? I had come to the understand that most of what Seth and  other sentinels wore were mostly black shirts with black pants, with the only accessory being a handful of super sharp daggers. This cover is truly awful, I thought it was awful when I saw it last year and I still hate it now. No matter how much I hate the cover it doesn’t change the fact that what truly matters about the book is what written.

Tears filled my eyes, because I was finally . . . I was finally where I was meant to be.

The Struggle by Jennifer L. Armentrout is the third book in the Titan series, which is a spin off from the Jennifer L. Armentrouts’ “The Covenant” series. Armentrout is a well known romance writer, whose mostly recognized for her romance novels under the name “J. Lynn”. Even though she is known for her romance novel she has a great hand at combining her strength of writing romance with her adventurous spirit of fantasy.

Our hands were clenching and clutching. Sweat beaded on my skin. I was rising up and being pressed back into the mattress, taking each thrust and reaching for more, always more. My name dripped from his lips. Soft cries parted mine. Tendrils of pleasure coiled tightly. My nails grazed his skin as I rocked against him. A curling, burning heat seared my skin. I couldn’t take it.

As far as “The Struggle” goes, JLA has really lived up to my expectations of JLA writing standards. If you’re interested in Greek mythology, romantic relationships, and the threat of the world constantly ending this is the book for you, however you will find that the Rick Riordan’s “The Percy Jackson” series has more exciting cast of characters, more eventful plot twist, cliffhangers, and  heart wrenching character reveals through events. I do feel that JLA has a great way of writing books that are both a light read as well as an addictive read. One thing I really hate about JLA writing is the fact that all her books end in such a hair pulling cliff hanger, that I wish she was standing in front of me so I can physically shake her. Jennifer L. Armentrout stop leaving us in this horrible sea of suspense!

What I love about this book? Umm that’s easy I loved learning more about Seth. Oh Seth Seth Seth Seth Seth. JLA can no wrong when she spends more time speaking about Seth, don’t get me wrong I love my thick girl Josie, but I fell in love with Seth the moment he was introduced in the Covenant series. To know the depth of my love for Seth you really need to read the entire Covenant series, to best understand the length, depth, and width my love for the character Seth place in my heart.

My heart always skips a beat when it comes to Seth, especially after knowing him form the previous series. To get the full back story of Seth and the Gods truly give you a better understanding of how much his character as well has his future has drastically changed. I gave this book 3 out of 5 stars.
