I'm reviewing Strength by Carrie Butler at Smexybooks

Favorite Quote: “So help me, as long as I live, I’ll never get tired of seeing that man without a shirt on. How he stays so humble, I’ll never know.
When college student Rena Collins finds herself nose-to-chest with the campus outcast, her rumor-laced notions are shattered. Handsome, considerate, and seemingly sane, Wallace Blake doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, screaming and banging on the walls of his dorm room. Hell, he doesn’t look like he spends his nights alone, period.
Too curious for her own good, Rena vows to uncover the truth behind Wallace’s madman reputation–and how two seconds of contact had left her with bruises. Of course, there are a few setbacks along the way: guilt, admiration, feelings of the warm and fuzzy variety…
Not to mention the unwanted attention of Wallace’s powerful, supernaturally-gifted family.
They’re a bloodline divided by opposing ideals, two soon-to-be warring factions that live in secret among us. When Rena ends up caught in their crossfire, Wallace has no choice but to save her by using his powers. Now they’re really in trouble. With war on the horizon and Rena’s life in the balance, he needs to put some distance between them. But Rena won’t let go. If fighting is what it takes to prove her own strength and keep Wallace in her life, then that’s what she’ll do–even if it means risking a whole lot more than her heart. (Goodreads)

Strength is a new adult paranormal romance for whom fans of Jennifer Armentrout’s LUX series might enjoy. Set in the present, we are introduced to Rena Collins as she stalks the college campus madman Wallace Blake. Curious as to all the rumors of his insanity, she soon learns he is not insane. In fact, to her disappointment, he is rather normal and explanations are given for his seemingly violent behavior. Rena and Wallace form a tentative friendship which leads to some amazing and dangerous revelations. Revelations that could spell disaster and possibly death for Rena.
