Will you fall?
On Earth, seventeen-year-old Ari Alexander was taught to never peek, but if she hopes to survive life on her new planet, Loge, her eyes must never shut. Because in this world, pleasure is everything, held up by a ruling body that keeps their people in check by giving them what they want and closing their eyes to what’s really happening around them. The only hope Loge has is to move its people to Earth, and they have a plan.
Thousands of humans crossed over to Loge after a poisonous neurotoxin released into Earth’s atmosphere, nearly killing them. They sought refuge in hopes of finding a new life, but what they became were slaves, built to siege war against their home planet. That is, unless Ari and Jackson can stop them. But on Loge, nothing is as it seems…and no one can be trusted.
I don't have to start a rebellion. It's already begun.

I was so psyched when I found out I won an eARC of Hover from Entangled! Needless to say, I started it immediately. Like the moment I received it. Hover, if you can imagine, is even better than Gravity! I gave both books 5 stars but I wish there was a way I could... ...more

Hover, the sequel to Gravity, was a fulfilling second book in the series although I did have a few qualms with it. Despite the few issues I had, the growth of the characters and the better understanding of the world building made this book a successful... ...more
Review: 4 out of 5 stars

Apart from all the sequels that are coming out this year for me this one was one of the most expected title. I really, but really wanted to get that purple sky. But for real, when you leave me hanging with a cliffhanger it drives me crazy and when you add a ne... ...more

This is a sequel to Gravity and you MUST read Gravity before reading this. You cannot just jump in and hope to catch up. It had been a while since I read Gravity and even I needed the refresher that the author gives when starting the book. It took me a little bit for me to get my bearings and to... ...more
There are two scenes in HOVER that I loved. The first involves Jackson's "dream" and the other involves water. You're welcome.
The rest of the book had me on the edge of my seat with my heart in my throat and I loved every.minute.of.it!
I wanted to high five Ari for her strength, the wa... ...more
I just woke up one day and thought to myself: Hey, have I finished that book about some alien invasion and hot alien dude? So I looked for the book and have been busy since then reading it.
It's action packed. Ari has her hands full of a new planet, rebellion talks, torture. Her mind filled with... ...more

Hover is book two of The Taking series and brings you back into the world of Ari and Jackson. If you recall, book one left off with thousands of humans being forced to cross over to Loge because of the poisonous neurotoxin that was released. The crossover was supposed to become but it turns out,... ...more

After Gravity left its readers with a huge cliffhanger, I honestly didn’t know what to expect from Hover. But I just knew that this book would be well worth the wait and even better than the first.

I can’t even begin to describe all the feels after reading Hover. I mean seriously, it’s hard to put into words. I’ve missed these characters so much.
I love that we get to see an unhinged Ari. She doesn’t know anything about Loge. She also doesn’t trust the people there. Everything seems so diffe... ...more
