(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: September 2, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Suspense/Reverse Harem/Dark/MC Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Each book is getting steamier and more intense and I’m loving how everything is twisting together for this explosive series.

First of all, can I stop and celebrate Rhett Savage for a moment!?! YES!!! I’ve been waiting for this gruff, tough man to show even a small glimmer of a soft, gooey center and finally I was melting over this tattooed, bad boy. Rhett really pulled through for everybody in this third book. He was supportive, attentive, and yet still the caveman Sadie craves. Totally melt worthy moments. Give me a moment to wipe the drool from my mouth…..

Dane Stray, the sweet, funny Dane is a wreck this time. Dane needs his friends and his girl more than ever as he tries to make sense of his life. All of his brokenness comes pouring out and each person works to help him pick up the pieces. It’s emotional and because Dane is Dane, his story contains all the feels.

Wes Nobel knows where he wants to fit within Sadie’s world and with each day that passes the Sinners come to accept Wes in theirs. While he tries hard to shed the skin of his old world and protect his mother from his abusive father Wes is falling harder for the MC princess. Wes has been consistent from the beginning and I love him for that. He knows what he wants and he doesn’t stray from his goals which is going to be even more important as his friends and Sadie are going to need him more than ever going forward.

Sadie may be the glue that keeps her boys all together and make the intimate moments super, super steamy, but she’s also wicked independent and strong. She doesn’t need three men in her life because she’s weak, no, she has three men in her life because she can handle three strong, fierce guys and give each one what they need in return. Sadie continues to grow with each book and I like how she shines brighter as she discovers how much she cares for each of her guys.

Sacred really turned the story up a notch. It was full of plot, super steamy moments, and all the feels.

Review – The Damaged by Tijan


The Damaged; Insiders #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: February 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult Romance

Author: Tijan

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Welcome back to the world of Bailey and Kash. The world of the elite, but the stakes are different now that Kash’s secret is out and everyone knows that Bailey is Peter Francis’ daughter. The conditions under which Bailey is able to attend school are completely different than when she planned to attend last spring. Now she is surrounded by bodyguards and chauffeured to school like the privileged woman she is, even if she dislikes everything about it.

It doesn’t really hit Bailey why she needs these extreme measures, why she needs the protection, why she needs to actually be different. Her entire life has been thrown into a tailspin. Aside from her extraordinary brain, Bailey was basically ordinary and lead an ordinary life, but now everything is different and it’s not just because she’s Peter’s daughter, it’s also because Kash’s grandfather has a target on her back and will stop at nothing to destroy his own grandson, which means hurting those closest to Kash.

Speaking of Kash, we get a lot more of him in this book. The man is intense and he’s very intense about Bailey and how deep his feelings run for her…it’s super hot. I have no idea when the man sleeps, although it is hinted that he really doesn’t, because he’s on top of everything. His business, Bailey, Bailey’s siblings, Peter, his grandfather, Kash seems to be everywhere, but will it be enough to stop his grandfather from his nefarious plans?

If I had one complaint, I would have loved more from Bailey’s siblings in this book, although we did get introduced to new characters, her college friends/classmates. I was missing the connections Bailey made in the first book, however, Matt does comes around more than anyone and he is at least a good relief to some of the intense situations, when he wasn’t creating them himself. Of all the secondary characters, Matt definitely intrigues me the most, and I’d like to see more of his inner thoughts (perhaps Tijan will reveal those to us someday).

The ending is not only a big cliffy, but WOW! Mindblowing in a way of how Tijan could leave us readers hanging like that!?! It’s going to be a long winter until we all have answers.


The world knows about Kash.

Both Bailey and Kash were used to living in the shadows, but now they must live in the public eye.
Kash is figuring out his new found role against his grandfather, and Bailey is starting her graduate program late. At university, everyone is watching Bailey, and some are wondering if her legendary father, Peter Francis, bought her way into the elite program.

Meanwhile, Bailey’s former stepmother is in jail and at home, a mysterious aunt is living with them while Bailey’s mother and Peter are sleeping together. Again?!
But then, a new treasure trove of secrets is revealed and Bailey and Kash must decide if they will trust each other or take on the world alone.

Blog Tour – Wilder by Anna Brooks

 Release Date: August 26

56221487. sy475

I was too young to understand the beauty of what I held in my arms when she crashed into my world.

Frankie Young was never far from my mind, so when she came back into my life after nearly a decade, it was as if no time had passed.

After we reconnected in more ways than one, there was no denying what we had was extraordinary and, I thought, forever. But when she discovered something I’d been hiding, she gave up on us without giving me a chance to explain.

My lies broke her heart, but her walking away shattered what was left of mine. I thought that was the end for us… until Frankie and I found ourselves bound together for life. While we navigated our new found destiny, not only did we have to fight for each other, but we had to protect our future from someone who didn’t want us to have one together.
