❤❤The Barrier Between by Stacey Marie Brown Release Day Blitz + 5 star review ❤❤

Purchase on Amazon:

Zoey’s life has taken a dramatic turn. Only a few months ago she was a Collector working for the a secret part of the government called the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), tracking and collecting fae. Her life had been changing and improving with a partner she loved and a sister she adored. Now all that is gone—Daniel murdered by a fae, and Lexi killed when the Seattle area is devastated by a powerful, magical electrical storm. Zoey herself is altered by her association with the Wanderer, Ryker, in life-changing way. Zoey discovered she was an experiment from the very company she worked for. She could die at any moment of a threatening defect—taking Ryker’s magic with her. In a race against time, Ryker and Zoey set out to find a way to transfer his powers back before it’s too late. Their journey takes them to the rainforests of South America, dealing with those who are after something Ryker possesses and who will stop at nothing to obtain it for themselves. What Zoey and Ryker discover can destroy them or tear them a part for good.  

Hands down exceptional. Stacey Marie brown may be new to the PNR book world, but good God you don't want to miss her books. She has such a fluid and addicting writing style. The kind that just sucks you in and you see the whole story playing out in your head as you read, like a mental movie. 

I've read her books, all of them, and they keep getting better and better. Which is saying something, because I think they were already amazing from the get go. 

She kills me with cliffhangers. However she's got the type of books that even with a cliffhanger I can still remember the last book two or three months later. I can pick up the new release and feel all those same emotions and be right back where I was at the end of the last book. 

Emotions. Man, one emotion I had in spades while reading this book was anger. I was so damn angry at RYker and Amara. Just typing her name makes me wanna throw a pillow. She is the perfect villain. But Ryker, I'm so mad at him. How he acted. How he treated Zoe. It was like he was two different people. 

Now, curve balls. I totally didn't see these coming. Stacey surprised me and also made me laugh many times with that little Sprite. She's mad me hot, so hot, angry, love someone I thought I hated, like someone I am pretty sure I didn't like, and just all around love this book so much I didn't want it to end. So well done Stacey. So well done.

Zoey Daniels has been tossed from foster home to foster home, where she grows up fast and tough. When she is placed in her “last-chance” home, she finds a reason to stay and turn her life around: her foster sister, Lexie, who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair. Zoey will do anything to keep her safe.
After high school, Zoey is hired by a special government agency, the Department of Molecular Genetics (DMG), where she meets the other reason to remain: Daniel, her co-worker. The man she loves.
But there is something unique about Zoey. She can see fae. Because of this, the DMG hires her to work as a Collector: catching, researching, testing, and using the fae to save human lives. The work never registers on her sympathy radar. She was raised to think of fae as beasts that feed on humans and want to destroy them. When devastation hits Seattle, Zoey's whole world is turned upside down. The electric storm connects her to a ruthless fae, a Wanderer named Ryker, whose dealings expose them to even more trouble and danger. They embark on a journey, running and hiding from both the government and fae, both of which threaten their lives and those they love.
