About the Author
#1 New York Times and USA TODAY Bestselling Author Jennifer L. Armentrout lives in West Virginia. All the rumors you've heard about her state aren't true. Well, mostly. She spends her time reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write. Her dreams of becoming an author started in algebra class, where she spent her time writing short stories... therefore explaining her dismal grades in math.

As for the romance, I really enjoyed Tanner and Andrea’s relationship progression. They’ve had a tentative friendship from the very beginning with an obvious attraction to one another. I’m surprised nothing had happened between them before all this went down. The first half of the story takes place at a cabin that they, along with Kyler and Syd, go to for a vacation. It’s there that their relationship is taken to the next level, as Tanner can’t resist his attraction to Andrea and she decides she might want to give it a try, too. From then on, it’s a real push and pull between these two as their communication skills aren’t the best. I liked that even though there was drama, it wasn’t extreme, which made it more believable. They also had plenty of hot moments, in true JLA fashion, and I was a total sucker for Tanner.
Scorched had all the elements that I’ve come to love and expect from a JLA book, but her writing was also taken to another level with the issues she addressed. She tackles so many – from alcoholism to mental illness to addiction and more. All of that was mixed together well to paint a raw picture of what Andrea is going through and making sure the reader grasps the significance and importance of it all. She makes a point that it’s okay to be who you are and that whoever that is, it’s normal. This book demands to be read and I’m so happy Jen wrote it.
I've been in a bit of a book funk; so I decided to read some books that have been on my TBR for a while. Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my absolute favorite authors, and a go to author when I need a guaranteed good read. I was really excited to read Scorched, because I had read the first book in the series, Frigid, and really enjoyed it. Plus, I remember having read several reviews on how good it was, by bloggers that I follow.
This story can be read as a standalone. Scorched was a serious read, with real life problems. The main character was realistically flawed, and the story had a good message. The main characters, Andrea and Tanner, are the best friends of Sydney and Kyler, who were the main characters in Frigid.
Syd and Kyler invite Andrea and Tanner to share a relaxing getaway in a cabin, located in the woods of West Virginia. Andrea and Tanner have an interesting way of interacting with one another. Tanner enjoys pushing all of Andrea's buttons, and he's always sure to get a feisty reaction out of her. They are both very attracted to one another, but Andrea thinks that Tanner is a player, and doesn't want to be another notch on his bedpost.
From the beginning of the story, we see that Andrea is a party girl, who loves to go out. However, it quickly becomes apparent that she has a problem. She is a binge drinker, and can't stop at a few drinks without getting completely wasted. She usually goes home from the bars with different guys, and cannot remember anything when she wakes up the next day.
Right away Andrea's character intrigued me. I wondered about what lead her to drink the way that she did. I thought perhaps she had inner demons that she was trying to escape, and was very curious to figure out what they were. This was one of the things that kept me turning pages very quickly.
Andrea quickly agrees to go to the cabin, because she does not like to be alone, and Sydney is her only real friend. Tanner goes because he is looking to have a good time. While at the cabin, the dynamic of Andrea and Tanner's relationship changes. Attraction consumes them, and feelings grow substantial. However, the problem of Andrea's drinking looms over them. Syd and Tanner want to help Andrea. Will she let them, or will her problem destroy the only good things in her life?
I loved reading about the close friendship that Andrea and Sydney shared. I also loved Tanner's character. He was so caring, compassionate, and understanding. Tanner truly wanted to help Andrea, because he really cared about her. There were a ton of swoon-worthy moments between Andrea and Tanner, which was another thing that kept me turning pages quickly!
Scorched had a different feel to it than other books that I've read by Jennifer L. Armentrout. However, one thing remained the same, her characters were still beautifully developed, and the plot was one that I quickly became invested in.
I give, Scorched, by Jennifer L. Armentrout 4 Real World Problems, Beautiful Connection, Swoon-Filled Stars!
