Book Review and Giveaway- Entice

I am a bad blogger!  I was supposed to have this review posted on Wednesday!  Sorry!

I just finished reading Entice by Carrie Jones.

From Goodreads:
Zara and Nick are soul mates, meant to be together forever.

But that's not quite how things have worked out.

For starters, well, Nick is dead.

Supposedly, he's been taken to a mythic place for warriors known as Valhalla, so Zara and her friends might be able to get him back. But it's taking time, and meanwhile a group of evil pixies is devastating Bedford, with more teens going missing every day. An all-out war seems imminent, and the good guys need all the warriors they can find. But how to get to Valhalla?

And even if Zara and her friends discover the way, there's that other small problem: Zara's been pixie kissed. When she finds Nick, will he even want to go with her? Especially since she hasn't just turned...she's Astley's queen.
Okay, so I have to admit it.  I didn't really remember what happened in Need and Captivate.  And unfortunately, Entice didn't really give a lot of back story.  I started to remember a little as I read on, but not a lot.
And I remember that I liked Nick but I don't really remember why.  But I certainly know that I love Astley!  Oh man, can I have a pixie king like him (although he'd definitely have to be one of the good ones!)  And Zara is a great kick-butt female character. 
This book was a little slow to start off, but then the action got going.  And the end definitely leaves you wanting more and wanting to know what is going to happen next! (And I'm totally Team Astley!)
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
