House of Imperial (Secret Keepers #2) Reviews
House of Imperial by Jaymin Eve a majestic five-star read. This is the second book in Secret Keeper series and they just go from strength to strength. Jaymin Eve I don’t know how you write woman with so many amazing qualities, and such a love of coffee and Converse, it’s just the little things that make her that much more adorable. Callie feels like she has come home when she finds herself in New Orleans, but is it the place, or someone else who’s there? The house of Imperial will break her and ...more
Not as good as the first
This book had a lot of potential. Really the whole series does. I usually love Jaymin's books but this fell a little short for me. I get it's hard to write a full connecting story into one book. I just didn't get the full connection here with the "main" characters, mainly because they never seemed to be together. It's this love story and Daniel keeps saying he'll never leave her but then they constantly are apart. Yet they fall so deep in love. It's hard to connect to. T ...more
The second Secret Keepers installment introduces the House of Imperial which is akin to the underworld. Think Hades and Persephone.
The storytelling here is much longer and involved to explain who are the mysterious Daelighters and this strange otherworld ruled by the four Houses.
Callie, who has been on the run for most of her life, meets the bold brash Daniel for the first time when he attempts to rescue her.
But seeing the tall, bald and gorgeous man coming at her, Callie does the o ...more
I loved this world that Jaymin created!!! This story follows two different main characters, Callie and Daniel. Emma, Lexen, and the others make an appearance through. Its a continuation of a bigger story over all. I LOVED Callie. She's funny, vulnerable, and strong. Callie and Daniel (who is so dreamy) have a fun chemistry. I read this book in one gulp because I couldn't put it down; it was intense, action packed, tender moments. I enjoyed seeing the other characters from another perspective. I ...more
This book is awesome, so intense... Callie is a total badass, so different from Emma, but you really get to love her... Daniel, oh my, Daniel... is really hard no to want him too... the boys from this saga are so hot, so strong, sweet, over protective (which I adore), so loyal, it is so hard to want just one of them... and we are just in the middle, there are two more guys to know about... Callie and Daniel are so sweet together, I love the way they complement each other, how they understand eac ...more
This series shows potential. It also reminds me of 'Judgement of Six series' by Melissa Haag which I enjoyed a lot but instead of six we have 4 secret keepers.
Never underestimate a woman. You'll end up on your knees holding your balls.
Callie was fun to read, definitely an improvement from Emma. But while Emma lacked in #1, we had his amazing mate Lex to compensate. While Emma got naked in Lex's bathroom, after being kidnapped by the dude, Callie actually shows some intelligence compared to ...more
"He shouldn't have entered my place acting like a creepy shit. Creeps get punched in the dick."
By far my most favorite quote in this book!
Continuing on from the first book we have a new secret keeper, Callie.
She is used to being on the move because her mom is essentially paranoid. Beyond paranoid actually. But after they land themselves in New Orleans things seem to get more intense for them. Having been prepared her whole life by her mother she now actually has to face the fact that everything ...more
Callie grew up knowing about Other World and constantly moving and on the run from them. They found her in New Orleans where she had no choice but to go with Daniel because her mother was kidnapped to get her out of hiding. She’s the second secret Keeper. This story sucks you in from the very beginning. Callie has spunk and fire and her and Emma click instantly. The girls are in for the fight of their lives, and it’s not over yet. I’m so excited to read House Of Leights and for the Secr ...more
