Thorne Point sunk its claws in me at a young age.

I refused to let its harsh truths snuff out my light.

When an attempt to kidnap me is stopped, I know theyโ€™ll never give up.

The cityโ€™s seedy underbelly wonโ€™t let me escape forever.

My only choice is to run into the arms of monsters for safety.

The Crows have a terrifying reputation, and Levi Astor lives up to it.

But my protective monster will never be worse than the ones who buried their ugliness deep in me.

Our unchallenged rule over this city is crumbling.

Weโ€™ll hunt down the ones behind this and make them pay.

Guarding the senatorโ€™s daughter isnโ€™t on my agenda, yet I couldnโ€™t ignore her if I tried.

Sunshine might break through the shadows, but it will only illuminate what makes me a deadly monster.

Isla Vonn should run in the opposite direction instead of into my arms.

Because everyone fears the Leviathan in Thorne Point.

Review – Ripple Effect by J. Bengtsson

58991645. sy475

Ripple Effect
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 28, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies to Lovers/Rockstar Romance

Author: J. Bengtsson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Tap into every emotion for the top read of 2021! Ripple Effect is hands down the most emotional rollercoaster ride I’ve ever experienced while reading. Laughing, crying, so much tension I was a huge stress ball of anxiety, and then I was back to laughing through my tears while my heart was pounding through my chest. My emotional stability was all over the place and yet I couldn’t stop reading.

Dani Malone is a hotmess, crazy neighbor with rules galore and I loved her to pieces. She is the post-it note queen when it comes to passively-aggressively antagonizing her neighbor, Chad Woodcock. Only Chad is an alias for RJ Contreras, a former boyband mega star. Dani is clueless that she’s been living next door to a rockstar since Chad is covered under mountains of beard, shaggy hair and a sour attitude. These two are full of sassy attitude and hilarity as they volley back and forth with quick wits and lethal jabs and truthfully, I could have continued reading their enemies to lovers story for 500 more pages, but as the title of the book is appropriated….prepare for a ripple effect and it is a dozy.

Under duress, Dani and RJ go through a traumatic event unlike anything I’ve ever read. It ramped up my anxiety and tension to a level 50 on a scale of one to ten and I had to keep reminding myself that this was a romance book and that Bengtsson wouldn’t destroy my idea of a HEA.

Ripple Effect is emotional and beautiful, while still being funny and filled with tons of heart. It is truly one of the best books I’ve read in a long time and I’m so glad I was able to read it.

It’s about family, changing your outlook, loving your neighbor, loving yourself, and finding your inner strength even in the most dire of circumstances. There is so much more, but I don’t want to give everything away because it needs to be experienced first hand.

Don’t let this book fall through the cracks in your TBR, it is a must read!! Pick it up so you too canย cry, laugh, and fall in love with this beautiful story.

Synopsis:

He’s the surly rocker in hiding.
She’s the fed up neighbor who wants him dead.

Enemies to lovers tale with an earth-shaking twist!

When his mega-famous boy band AnyDayNow breaks up, international pop star RJ Contreras strikes out on his own. But when his solo career flops, RJ retreats to a no-frills apartment where he can hide out from the world and lick his festering wounds.

But when the girl next door starts slipping ‘good neighbor’ contracts under his door and complaining about his behavior through strategically placed Post-it-Notes, RJ snaps out of his self-absorbed melancholy to wage war.

Nothing short of an act of nature could repair the relationship between these two strong-willed enemies. But guess what Fate has in store?

What happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there.

We’re polar opposites.

I’m grumpy and scarred–literally.

Blurb:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

The empire is crumbling…

She didnโ€™t believe me. Even now she doesnโ€™t want to.

But as sirens ring out in the distance and she stares into my eyesโ€” there is no denying it.

No denying her. Or the truth.

The threat is closer than we ever imagined and uncovering that truth is more deadly than the lies she grew up believing.

Weโ€™re at our breaking point, but Iโ€™m not going down without a fight. And Iโ€™m sure as hell not going to lose her. Not after everything weโ€™ve endured.

Stella Doukas might have started out as her fatherโ€™s little princess.

But Iโ€™m going to make her my queen.

Dear Readers,

Wicked Empire is the third and final in Stella and Sebastian’s trilogy and the first couple’s story in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series. This book is a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.
