Synopsis (Goodreads):

Jazz and Trevor’s love story continues in Slamming, through adversity and growing confusion.

The Queen of the Seelie Fae, Aaibhe is under attack by her council, and discord threatens the solidarity they need to take down the Unseelie abominations.

Frankie meets her Fae father in Slamming and Prince Breslyn is hit with epic changes that will alter life for him as he knows it.

Humans are at the mercy of hordes of hungry Dark Fae…and chaos rules!
My Thoughts:

I really wanted to like this book, but it just wasn't there for me. This is a continuation of Trevor and Jazmine's story from Through Time-Whiplash. This book picks up off a cliffhanger, so definitely read these in order.  I enjoyed the underlying plot for this story. Trevor and Jazmine (and all the other Seelie royals) are still fighting Pestale as he tries to dominate the human realm.  There is a lot of action, and I definitely enjoy the variety of powers the Seelie and Unseelie exhibit. There was a lot of potential in the plot, and it was interesting enough to drive me to finish this book..

My problem with this story was that all of the little conflicts throughout the story were very brief. There would be a good plot twist, then one page later it was already resolved. Everything was resolved too easily, and the book became a little predictable.  The romance seemed to be just randomly thrown in; we would be in the middle of a fight then we'd just zoom in on any of the couples, the guy would say a few romantic words, Jazmine would comment on how cute they were, then we'd move on. I didn't even feel like Trevor and Jazmine developed at all, neither individually nor as a couple. After enjoying Through Time-Whiplash, this book was just a bit too lackluster. I am, however, greatly looking forward to Frankie's story, so I will continue on with this series.
