#BookTour: Cashmere (Velvet Trilogy #2) @byTemple West #BookReview

 
This high-stakes sequel to Velvet proves that when you’re the only human caught in a paranormal war, high school can get a little tricky. With Adrian’s brother trapped in hell, the Praetorian Guard has made Stony Creek their base-of-operations, but Caitlin has a bad feeling they’re more interested in her than in finding Lucian. Caught in a sea of conspiracies and lies, Caitlin and Adrian perform a risky magical procedure in an attempt to protect Caitlin from compulsion.

Relieved that her nightmares have ended, Caitlin is disturbed to find that something even stranger has taken their place. 

Determined to get on with her life, even amid a crazy paranormal manhunt, she applies for a competitive summer fashion internship in New York. Searching desperately for answers about what Caitlin might be, how Adrian’s father is involved, and where Lucian has been kidnapped to, Caitlin and Adrian must rely on each other to survive. But when the truth finally comes to light, the consequences are unimaginable.

And the question still haunts them both: even if they survive, how will they deal with the fact that Adrian is immortal and Caitlin is not?

The debut author of the YA paranormal romance Velvet is as nerdy in real life as she is on the Twitter. Armed with a very shiny English degree, she spent four months in Oxford holed up at the Radcliffe Camera amongst the hush of ancient books and the rich musk of academia. Returning to Los Angeles, she acquired a concurrent degree in film, mostly as an excuse to write essays about The Princess Bride and Hook. She can sew (poorly), drive stick (please fasten your seatbelt), and mostly lift her feet off the ground while stuttering into first gear on a very small motorcycle. She currently lives in Seattle but tends to wander from city to city like the gypsy she is.









OMG OMG OMG!!! I started this book this afternoon, and now I'm finished it took me just over 7 hours to read the entire thing, and although it didn't end on a massive cliffhanger, it did leave me wanting to start book three right now. Which of course I can't do because this one isn't even out yet. So book three won't be out until next year. :( excuse me while I have a little meltdown.

Ok so crying over.  This book was by far amazing! Best book of 2017 so far! I don't think another book is going to top this one. It has everything you want in a continuing story and has no book two syndrome! So don't worry you won't be bored or anything you will want to finish this in a day!

This book starts up three months after the events of Velvet and its a doozy! There is mystery, twists, turns, one H*** of a funny non-sex scene that will make you laugh so hard you will cry.  This book is one of the most laugh out loud books I've read for some time.  I kept having to stop reading so that I could share things.  Then this book gave me parts I couldn't share because they were spoilers, so sad!!

This book again lays heavy on character development, and the story itself.  The author did an incredible job building on the foundations of the vampire/demon story she created in book one.  You will feel right along with Cat with what she is going through from her day to day life.  I loved that we got little snips of the mystery instead of just knowing everything all at once.  I also loved the one twist that was presented.  I do there that there was two story mess ups that I hope are fixed in the finished product. (unless I'm just nuts and sleep deprived.) Which could be the case.

I'm really at a loss for words on what to say about this story.  So many things can't be talked about as I don't want to spoil it for you.  Cat comes into her own by the end of this book, and I am excited to see how it all turns out.  (Temple I'm hoping for like a 1000 page book for book three!)  I loved seeing Cat figure out what she wanted to do after high school but also sad that you don't really get to see much of anyone else.  She doesn't spend as much time with Adrian in this one. This was a Cat driven book vs. what we got in book one.

If you were a fan of book one, I would pre-order this one right now. This story/book won't disappoint you in the slightest!
