FOCUS Description:

Freshman year of college is hard even when you're not tied to the future king of a supernatural society.

Allie dives into college head first with Hailey as her roommate and the city of New Orleans as her backyard. As things within The Society heat up, Allie realizes that whether she’s with Levi or not, she's in far too deep to turn back.

FLIGHT Description:

Sometimes you just have to take flight.

A summer in New Orleans is exactly what Allie needs before starting college. Accepting her dad’s invitation to work at his hotel offers an escape from her ex-boyfriend and the chance to spend the summer with her best friend. Meeting a guy is the last thing on her mind—until she sees Levi.

Unable to resist the infuriating yet alluring Levi, Allie finds herself at the center of a supernatural society and forced to decide between following the path she has always trusted or saving a city that might just save her.

Alyssa Rose Ivy is a Young Adult and New Adult author who loves to weave stories with 
romance and a southern setting. Although raised in the New York area, she fell in love with the 
South after moving to New Orleans for college. After years as a perpetual student, she turned 
back to her creative side and decided to write. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and 
two young children, and she can usually be found with a cup of coffee in her hand.

My Thoughts:

I've been anxiously waiting to continue Allie and Levi's story. I mean how could I not be, that cliffhanger at the end of Flight was, well....frustrating to say the least.  Now it appears that I'll be biting my nails until Found. Yep, that's right another wtf cliffhanger. 

Focus read a lot more like a contemporary novel rather than a paranormal, which I for one, liked. There was some mention of the Pterons and Levi had some paranormal meetings to attend for the society. Other than that it was very much about Levi and Allie's romance and Alli's new experience as a college student at Tulane. I really enjoyed watching Allie's friendships grow with Hailey and her new dorm mates. 

My only complaint and it really isn't a real complaint it's more of an, ugh!!!! Allie drove me a little  insane with her constant back and forth jerking of poor Levi's chain. Now don't get me wrong Levi messed up big time in Flight but it felt almost like she were using her affections as a weapon and that really annoys me. OK end rant!

So now I sit and I wait and I pray that Levi isn't keeping more secrets from Allie. Until then readers... Enjoy!
