However, a lot can happen in 8 months…

Scarlett must learn to overcome the obstacles thrown in her path to prevent the past from repeating itself.

Can she learn to fly with her own wings and discover the secret to eternal love?

She let me kiss her. She didn’t argue with me when I told her that we would never say goodbye. She smiled, just slightly but it was still a smile, when I called her my Psyche. I couldn’t focus on all of the other things she said. I knew she was angry and hurt; she had every right to be. I had tried to deny what she meant to me one too many times, and I was still afraid the last time may have cost me her forever.

But finally I had something I hadn’t had in a long time ~ hope. Despite her hateful words and lashing out, I finally felt a semblance of the peace I could only find in her presence. I didn’t know what my next move was, but I sure the fuck wasn’t giving up. After experiencing a life without her in it, I would never give up on her. I would never give up on us

My Review: 

Let me preface this review by stating that I am very aware that most of you fellow Erin Noelle fans are either die hard Team Mason or die hard Team Ash, which I totally understand. 99.9% of the time, I can very easily pick which "team" I am on when there is a love triangle in a story and will support that choice to the very end, but surprisingly after reading Metamorphosis, I found myself completely torn as to what "team" I supported because honestly...

 I fell in love with both Mason and Ash. 

 *Cue Gasp*

Yes, I said it.

 I love Mason AND Ash.

Crazy and kind of skanky, I know, but I just can't help it!

 I promise that I am usually not so fickle and don't get me wrong, I completely wanted to junk punch Ash multiple times in Meta because he acted like such a giant bag of douche, buuuut at the same time, I adored his connection with Scarlett and I was 100% intrigued by the depth of his character. The mystery surrounding Ash left me wanting more and wondering what the heck had happened in his life that made him act the way he did. (Which we thankfully finally get some insight into in Ambrosia!) 
Mason, on the other hand, is sex on a stick and I loved that he was there for Scarlett when she needed him the most. He is just one of those characters that is completely lovable from the moment you meet him. 

Thus the making of my very own little love triangle.

So obviously when people ask me....

My answer is...


Now let me reiterate that I normally am very opinionated about what guy I want my heroine to end up with, so it felt completely mind boggling to not really care which man candy Scarlett would choose, but as the release of Ambrosia approached that is exactly the situation I found myself in.
I figured that I would be fine with whoever Scarlett decided on... 
as long as Erin promised to write another book that centered-around the jilted lover falling madly in love with a new kickass girl... preferably me!

tee hee

But all joking aside... as I started reading, I quickly realized that my mind and heart were not at all prepared for the CRAZINESS that unfolds in this book.

So without further ado, here is my review of Ambrosia.....

The story picks up right where Metamorphosis left off. Scarlett is back in Houston after being gone for 8 months, she still loves Mason, and they both desperately want to make their relationship work.

There was nothing sweet or sappy about the kiss, it was domineering, intense; purposeful. It was a kiss that told me he was in control of whatever relationship we were going to have from that point on.

We quickly realize that Mason was heartbroken after Scarlett disappeared on him, and now that she is back he will do anything to keep her. 

(Cue super steamy sex scenes.)

"We can talk later, Angel," Mason said as he pulled his lips a short distance from mine. "I've thought way too long about what I'd do if I ever had you in my arms again, and talking isn't a big part of it."

*fans face*
I don't want to give too much away about what happens between Mason and Scarlett, but I will say that there is a lot of passion, a few secrets, a super bitchy band manager who you will want to judo chop in the boob, and did I mention passion!? You can tell that Scarlett and Mason have an intense attraction and love for one another, 
but behind that love is a lot of fear, 
and fear can be an Achilles heel in any relationship. 

"I couldn't allow her to forgive him, because once she did, she would be his again. I would NOT let that happen."

Mason definitely feels threatened by the connection between Scarlett and Ash, 
but will he let it get the best of him?

Speaking of Ash...

As much as Scarlett hates Ash for breaking her heart, there will always be a part of her that loves him, and despite her attempts to forget him, the connection between them is still there. I could literally FEEL the intense emotions seeping from the pages every time they encountered each other throughout the book.

Despite all of that, I still love him. The connection between us could never be severed... not by any thing or any one. No matter what he did... what he said... who he was with... none of it really mattered ~ 
I would always love him.

 Now, yes Ash royally screwed up in Meta and the animosity that Scarlett has toward him is completely justified, but let me just say that the Ash we see in Ambrosia is an entirely different Ash than we saw in Metamorphosis. His character evolved and grew immensely during the time that Scarlett was away. Breaking Scarlett's heart transformed Ash into a better man, and now that she has returned, all he wants is for her to be happy and to try to make himself worthy of her love. 
  “All I want for you is to find happiness, even if it costs me mine."

"I just want to help build you back up, not tear you down any further." 
“The next time I kiss you, it’s forever. I won’t let go again.”

Can you say SWOOOOON!?!?!

As "equally" as I loved both Mason and Ash before I started Ambrosia, this is the
 moment when my Team MASHON love started to morph into 
Team mASHon love (emphasis on the Ash.) 
 Now in all fairness, I was still on the Mason/Scarlett train at this point because holy moly... that boy is hot and he makes me feel all funny inside, but my heart was starting to feel all fluttery and hopeful at the thought of Ash and Scarlett possibly reconnecting. 

Then enters Bentley (bitchy band manager you will inevitably want to boob punch).  
Never before in the history of books have I so ardently loathed a female character. (Well except maybe Nan in Forever Too Far and that skank in Taking Chances because they were pretty evil too..)

 but Bentley somehow takes evil wench status to a whole new level.
Her attempts to get her dirty little claws into Mason reeeeally ticked me off. 
I HATED her and wanted to karate chop her ass right out of the book.

Her involvement in the story was definitely something I was not ready for or wanted, and it left me feeling a little frazzled and highly pissed off.

Then came Max...

And my mind and heart went into complete and utter meltdown mode.

However, slowly but surely, Erin brought a sense of peace back to what was a surprisingly crazy & tumultuous plot, and I thought for a brief moment, "Ok, this mess that Scarlett has put herself in just might work itself out. Everything is going to be ok.
And then BAM!!!! Erin unleashes yet another mind blowing BOMB and I thought...

Needless to say, Ambrosia is an absolute crazy emotional roller coaster, but in the best possible way. Erin Noelle's writing will make you swoon, make you shake your eReader in complete frustration, make your heart break, and then turn around and make your heart shoot out rainbows and glitter because it is so happy. Did I always agree with the choices that Scarlett made? Absolutely not, but this book was about Scarlett's road to self-discovery, and her road just happens to be extremely bumpy. What really matters is that she learned from those bumps, and in doing so, she grew as a person and finally figured out what true love really is! 

One taught me how to fly like and angel ~ to free my spirit, to accept forgiveness, and to love without restraint. The other had taught me to fly like a butterfly ~ to embrace change, to celebrate innocence and vulnerability, and to open up my soul. Together, they had both given me the courage and the strength to fly with my own wings.

I personally loved Ambrosia, and am sooooo excited to see what happens in book 3. I just hope that EVERYbody finds their happy ending.... well except for Bentley. I hope she ends up alone and fat. ;-)
