Review of Anew: Book Two: Hunted by Josie Litton

From NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Josie Litton

Amelia and Ian's story continues in Book Two of this erotic retelling of "Sleeping Beauty" set in the near future. Torn apart by the revelation of Ian's tormented past, the lovers are caught in a web of deadly danger they can only survive by confronting together.

As the collective madness of Carnival descends on the glittering world city, Ian's fight to redeem himself takes him into the depths of the nightmare that has haunted him for so long. At the center of it is Amelia, at once a pawn in a monstrous game of evil and the only hope of ultimately defeating it.

In a world ruled by sensual excess, the passion of these lovers holds the power to transform despair into hope and betrayal into justice. But a fateful decision will change the course of their lives forever.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆
What if you thought you didn't need anyone to complete you? Like Ian felt until Amelia blazes into his life, awakening parts of him like no one ever had before.  He didn't think that he could ever truly love because of a scarred past.  Or what if you had never experienced sex, passion or love?  Being awakened and new in the world, yet having an older soul gives you a fresh outlook.  This awakening for Amelia, invokes such passion in her for Ian, that it leaves her longing and in a state of perpetual bliss.

Josie Litton's newest book in the Anew series, Hunted book two is more than exciting it is intoxicating and completely epic.  The characters are thoroughly entertaining, created in a way that makes you yearn to know more about them and to crave more of this imaginary tale of a future world with replica technology, where sex is hot, and love is inevitable.  This trilogy is exquisitely articulated and produces a masterpiece of longing and awakening. 

The infamous and mysterious Ian Slade is a man on a mission.  He is consumed with keeping Amelia safe at all costs, even and most importantly from himself.  Ian longs to protect her, longs to have her and needs her.  Thinking he could stay away from Amelia, the two week standoff ends and once again Ian finds himself devoured by Amelia's beautiful soul.

Amelia had awakened months ago, to a world filled with things she does not understand.  However, the one constant that remained with her, was the attraction she felt towards her tall dark and handsome prince, Ian Slade.  He was the first person she saw on awakening and she can't get enough of him.  When separation from Ian has her emotionally drained, Amelia longs for and needs to be with Ian like she needs her next breath.  

I love this trilogy!  I'm so stoked already for the next book.  The twists and turns, OMG moments, and hot bits of intimacy brought me to my knees with pleasure while I was biting my nails wanting to know what would happen next.  The end was epic, one I didn't see coming!  You have me on the rocks, Josie!  I can't wait to find out what will happen next!!!

Would I recommend this book:  Yes! Oh yes!  This three book trio is a must read!  You need to read the first book Anew:  Awakened, to appreciate the meaning and the beauty of the whole story.  The characters are epic with an exciting futuristic platform.  This has become one of my favorite novels that I've read recently.

Would I recommend this author:  Yes!  Josie Litton is up on my top list of favs!  I love her eloquent writing style and the characters she creates.  Keep it up Josie, you're on a roll!
