Enchanted Heart & Lying, Cheating Heart - Mindy Ruiz

Cassandra Vera never ever broke the rules.
She’s also had a nonexistent social life since her best friend moved to Vegas. Armed with a new set of resolutions, the promise of a hot date, and her adoptive parents out of town, seventeen-year-old Cassandra agrees to a road trip, which is the perfect way to celebrate her birthday and ring in the New Year. After all, she’s headed to Vegas, the city where secrets are meant to stay hidden. Little does Cassandra know her past is buried there as well.
Cloaked in the shadows of the glitz and gaudy lights of Vegas lies a power struggle centuries old. One wrong step and Cassandra could destroy the delicate web of secrets. Now an enemy she never knew existed is after her, and the one boy who may be the missing piece to the puzzle — and her heart— is the one person she can’t afford to trust.

**Enchanted Heart is an upper YA Paranormal Romance Series that will crossover into NA Paranormal Romance. This book is not recommended for readers under 15*

No More Lies! Cassie Vera thought the biggest threat to her life disappeared the night her boyfriend, A.J. Vasillios, used his one-time-use power and saved her from certain death. She was wrong. The mythological hit list she was on is nothing compared to her freshman year at the University of Las Vegas. Rooming with Vegas’s future female royalty has pushed her estrogen tolerance to its limit. Worse, Cassie must take place in a time-honored tradition that tests her faith, while her boyfriend’s new job threatens to shatter her heart. When age-old traditions change … Cassie’s school year is interrupted when the future queens are ordered to represent their Houses in an annual high-stakes competition. While at her ancestral home in Malaga, Spain, Cassie discovers the Greek gods have gifted her with new abilities. Cassie takes matters of righting an eighteen-year-old wrong into her hands. However, actions have consequences, and Cassie’s may very well end up costing her and the House of Hearts everything. With her family’s future at stake and the love of her life choosing sides, Cassie must cheat death one more time. When duty requires you to do the unthinkable, where will your loyalties lie? Only a Lying, Cheating Heart Knows.

The first books in the Game of Hearts Series are two of the most engrossing, magical stories I've read in a long while.  From the first page I was swept away in Cassie's story.  She's a girl I can easily relate to in most ways.  Though sometimes I wanted to scream at my kindle app telling her to stop being a doormat.  The rest of the characters are unique and well woven together to keep you interested even when you want to knock some heads together.  If you're looking for a paranormal upper YA series that will have you enthralled from beginning to end I highly recommend The Game of Hearts books to date.  (I'm SO ready for the next!)
