USA Today Bestselling Author, Callie Hart, delivers a twisted and edgy new dark romance tale, featuring a girl with nothing left to lose and a broken boy with a heart as black as his soul.

Want something? Pax will take it from you.

Love something? Pax will destroy it.

Love him? Heaven help you. You’d have to be the stupidest person to walk the face of the earth.

PAX

I don’t do complicated. I sure as hell don’t do love. With graduation in sight, I’ve made it almost four years at Wolf Hall without getting tangled up in BS with girls.
I especially want nothing to do with her:
Presley. Maria. Witton. Chase.
The timid little mouse with the red hair, who can’t even look my way without hyperventilating. She’s nothing to me. Beautiful, sure, but I’ve had plenty of beautiful women.
I’m perfectly content ignoring her…
…until her life is suddenly in my hands.

PRES

I’ve loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him.
The cruel, inked anarchist of Riot House.
He’s wicked, and he’s cold, and there’s nothing good left in him.
I fear him almost as much as I crave him.
With only a few weeks left until graduation, all I have to do is keep my head down, and then I’ll be free; I can leave Mountain Lakes and my obsession with Pax Davis in my rearview mirror.
But the demons I’ve been hiding for years now are growing restless…
…and Pax is thing that will keep them at bay.

This is not an act of kindness.
Not an act of love.
Not an act of forgiveness.
You’ll find no redemption here.
This is the final riot.

ACT ACCORDINGLY.

RIOT ACT is a 137,000-word standalone book in the Crooked Sinners Series and does not end on a cliffhanger. This book contains dark content that may be considered a trigger for some readers, and as such is recommended for readers 17+

Blog Tour – Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday.

All in one link page: https://shor.by/boyfriend

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/boyfriend

Amazon | Apple | Kobo | Nook | Google | Audio


RELEASE DATE: OCTOBER 12, 2021

The hottest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…

Now everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.

Because Weston’s family is even nuttier than mine. He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.

There will be hors d’oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…

Boyfriend is a full-length stand-alone romance for Weston and Abbi

EXCERPT

I wonder what Abbi is like. It doesn’t matter very much, of course. I haven’t agreed to marry her. It’s just one day of my life. And people fascinate me, so even if Abbi’s family is irritating as fuck, I probably won’t take it personally.

But I have a good feeling about Abbi herself. She’s local, which is interesting. Vermonters are pretty cool. They have a rugged mentality, and they rarely complain. And they’re usually hockey fans. What’s not to like about that?

The door opens, and I immediately lose my train of thought. I’m blinking at a pretty blond woman with shoulder-length hair. My first reaction is all hell yes and thank you, Jesus

Then I realize this is not just any woman. It’s the hot waitress from The Biscuit in the Basket. The one who remembers every order without writing it down. The one who always seems to know when we need something more, or when it’s time to drop the check.

The one with the kissable ivory neck and gray eyes that always make me a little stupid. I’ve never asked her out, because it’s rude to hit on a girl who’s just trying to get through her shift at work. But man, I’d like to. 

“Hi,” she says, frowning at me. “Wow. You’re wearing a tie.”

“Too much?” I ask, my hand flying to the knot of silk at my throat. “I could lose the tie.” And, heck, why stop there? If she asked me to lose my trousers, I’d do it. Anything for you, honey.

“No, you look very respectful. Thank you for doing this.”

I blink slowly. I can’t believe my luck. She’s my date? “You work at The Biscuit in the Basket,” I say stupidly. “But your name tag says Gail.”

She smiles. “That’s right. The lazy manager put the wrong name on it, and then wouldn’t redo it for me. But I’m glad you can recognize me without the uniform.”

“Well, sure. You look nice. Your hair is different. Fluffier. Wait. Is fluffy a good thing?” I babble.

She laughs suddenly. “Fluffy is fine. At work they make us wear those visor caps. Like we’re all golf caddies.”

I smile back at her and get a little lost for another moment. And her laugh is terrific. A little husky. I dig it.

“So, uh, are you ready to go?”

That’s when I realize I’m blocking her way out of her own door. “Yup, sorry,” I stammer, leaping to the side like a frisky goat. 

Oh, man. Nobody would call me Mr. Smooth right now, that’s for damn sure. I’m glad my teammates aren’t here to witness this. I’d never live it down. 

Abbi locks her door. “Where are you from, Weston? Is it too far to go home for Thanksgiving?”

“I’m from the eastern edge of Vermont. But I don’t have a car, and we have practice tomorrow anyway. Hey—does your family drink? I brought a bottle of wine.” I hold it up, along with a bouquet of flowers, too.

“That’s lovely of you,” she says. “I have a bottle in my car too. I find that where alcohol and my so-called family are concerned, more is more. Although I’m driving tonight, so I can’t drink.”

“Your so-called family?”

“Well, it’s complicated without being terribly interesting. But we’re going to my stepfather’s house. I mean, he used to be my stepfather and now he’s married to someone else.” 

“Your step-stepmother,” I say, recalling her text message.

“Right.” She leads me off the porch and down the walkway. “My car is just around the back. It won’t take us long to get there. You’ll be eating turkey dumplings in no time.”

“Sounds good. My body is, like, fifty percent wings and fries at this point. I’m sure you know that. I’m at your restaurant all the time.”

“Table number seventeen,” she says cheerfully. “The hockey table. Do you know that we prep a different portion of wings depending on whether you guys win or lose?”

“No, really? Why?”

“Because you eat more and get drunker on the nights you lose than on the nights you win.”

“Huh. That’s very scientific of you.”

She unlocks an elderly Honda Civic and opens the driver’s side door. “Last chance to back out.”

I wouldn’t dream of it. I have to remember how to be Mr. Smooth, though, and flirt properly with Abbi. Who knows? After a great meal, we could make this a night to remember. “I’m at your service,” I say, hoping it sounds a little sexy and not creepy. “Let’s get our turkey on.”

Huh. Mr. Smooth seems to be on vacation today.

I give myself a fifty-fifty shot at success. But I’ve faced worse odds. Game on.

Wicked Summer Knight is a prequel to the Knight’s Ridge Empire series. It was previously released in the Hot Summer School Nights anthology

EXCERPT

“What do you want from me?” I force out as his grip only gets tighter.

He smiles once more, but this time, there’s no amusement in it. Only malice.

“I want to hurt you. Punish you. Ruin you. Break you,” he hisses, almost as if he’s actually talking to himself. “I want to make you cry, beg, plead with me for mercy despite the fact that you know it’ll never come.”

My head spins as I try to register his words and the seriousness behind each and every threat.

“That’s some heavy shit for someone you just met.”

“You have no idea who you are, do you, Doukas?”

Blurb:

The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Review – Riot Act by Callie Hart

58314028. sx318

Riot Act; Crooked Sinners #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Callie Hart

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Callie Hart has written an explosive book with a dynamic couple at the helm. A Phoenix and a Sinner – two similar souls who have lead very different lives, but collide in a firework of pain and color where their souls fall in love. A TEN star worthy book!!

As much as I love Wren Jacobi, Riot Act is now my favorite Crooked Sinner book. This story is engaging and is one that will be completely unforgettable. I was so engrossed in reading that I’d forget where I was, what day of the week it was, or even what time of day it was. Riot Act is a true masterpiece.

Pax Davis is a complex character. He lives life to the fullest – a young man with a YOLO mentality and also filled with sociopathic rage that boils just underneath his skin. His hair trigger personality can be fun one moment and then make it wish you’d never met him the very next – Pax is so interesting, I loved…LOVED getting inside his head.

One of three boys who live in Riot House, he’s just one of the fascinating characters that made up the three personalities that all fit together and are best friends who live in the lone house at the top of the mountain at Wolf Hall, but more than that they are ride or die brothers. Wren, Dash, and Pax each have their own unique traits and Pax has just been darn delicious getting to know in this final installment of the Crooked Sinners.

Presley Chase, who previously has been shy, timid and a total wallflower, rises from the ashes of her former self and becomes a glorious phoenix in this book. The old Pres is killed off and the new Presley is no longer living in the shadows, afraid of what she wants. Pax is confused, while he desperately desires the fiery redhead, a girl he never used to give a second glance to in the past. Now everywhere he turns Presley is in his sights. She’s glorious and he doesn’t know how to handle this new version or if he even wants to.

These two together are explosive, with chemistry through the stratosphere! It is crazy just how hot these two fire up the pages. Fans, air conditioning, and all the additional panties won’t prepare you.

Callie wrote a phenomenal book and I was riveted from the very beginning. I was turning pages so fast and I loved every word. Pax and Pres are a fantastic power couple, one that will fit perfectly with the other Riot House couples. Yes, I’m still torn up over Wren vs. Pax, it’s a tough war over who wins the number one spot…thankfully Callie gives all the boys some time in this book because I love them all. Yes, all the Sinners deserve a golden trophy. A naked golden trophy made in their likeness. 🙂

New Release – Kings of Blood and Money by Ker Dukey

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Kings of Blood & Money
An Underworld Kings Series Standalone
Author: Ker Dukey
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2021
BLURB
This is not a story of love.
This is a story of revenge and the bond created from it.

 Noah

The Gallo family took everything from us.
They killed my mother and sister, leaving me and my twin brother fighting for our lives.
My father was supposed to be there that night. He should have been there. Should have protected them—us.
When you strip a man of all he cares about, you’re left with a soulless entity seething with primal rage. He promised to turn Gallo’s bloodline to dust to get his retribution.
And he did.
All but one.

Freya

I was seven years old when I was taken in the night. I don’t remember much of life before that.
All I know now is the glaring eyes of a boy who hates me, and the comfort I find in the boy whose face mirrors his.
I’m not part of this family, but they’re all I have comparable to one.
To hate is easy.
And I do hate them.
But to love even in hate is what hardens you, strengthens you, gives you reason.
The truth is I shouldn’t love them, that all these years are leading somewhere I won’t want to go.
But I do…
Love them.
I love them both.
The only question left now is, do they love me?

EXCERPT

“You throttled me.” She levels me with a stiff glare.
“I remember seeing a bruise.” It was an impulse, a need to inflict pain with her pleasure, to ground myself.
Yanking the neck of her sweater down, she scowls. “Because you like to leave marks, right?”
A shadow passes through the room as I stand and stalk toward her, devouring the space between us. Tilting her chin with my forefinger and thumb, I trace the light bruises blemishing her soft, creamy skin. I got carried away, held her too tight. Leaning down, I whisper against her ear, “You want me to kiss them better?” Her intake of breath brings a smile to my lips. She likes the big bad wolf. No matter how much she tries to deny it, claim she hates me, her body doesn’t.
Fucking ditto. 
I swipe my tongue across her neck, capturing her with an arm around her waist. Her legs almost give in. She’s sensitive, her nerves firing. Closing my mouth over her sore little neck, I suck, kiss, caress the bare surface.
Pulling away to face her, my balls draw up at the unfiltered lust blazing in her eyes. “Ask me to kiss you,” I tell her.
Rapid breaths lift her chest up and down. “Ask me, Freya,” I command.
“No.” She closes her eyes, her tone husky. 
A dark chuckle rumbles past my lips as I grasp her jaw, cupping her beautiful face. “Fucking ask me.”
“I hate you.”
“I hate you too. Now fucking ask me.”
“Kiss me,” she cries. Not a plea, but shame. She’s ashamed at how fucking badly she burns for the monster who frightens her so much.
“Say my name,” I growl.
“Noah,” she whines.
“Kiss me, Noah,” I instruct.
Silence.
I tug her forward, inhaling all her sexual heat.
“Say it, Freya, and I’ll give you what you need.”
“Kiss me, Noah.” She sobs. My insides churn at the decision I make. Slamming my lips against hers, I ram my tongue past the seal of her delectable lips, taking my fill.

Review – Boyfriend by Sarina Bowen

58341249. sy475

Boyfriend; Moo U #0 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Fake Boyfriend/Holiday/Sports Romance

Author: Sarina Bowen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Fake relationship to friendship to friends with benefits to something more…..

Boyfriend is so stinkin adorable and I’m so happy Sarina decided to write this book and add it to the Moo U collection.

Weston and Abbi both have a homelife that is a bit messed up and they end up using each other as a fake boyfriend/girlfriend over the holiday season. What they never imagined was a friendship to blossom from the original fake relationship, but once it did it was hard to stop the feelings that became even stronger with the more time they spent together.

“Something unexpected has happened between us-we really became friends.”

A proposition of friends with benefits gets thrown on the table, and seriously who could refuse such an offer, especially when they’ve both been attracted to one another since the very beginning.

However, they both agree to a short shelf life their non-existent relationship. Weston doesn’t do relationships, ever and Abbi is graduating in a few short months and plans on moving to another state. What they have should be easy, but it becomes anything except that.

Weston is goofy, playful and kind of quirky, “Playful, dirty Weston does not disappoint.” Pretty much all sides of Weston do not disappoint. He was all sorts of fun, sweet, and thoughtful. The exact guy you’d want to bring home to the family, if he was a relationship kind of guy. It’s really too bad he isn’t.

Abbi is also quite a catch. She’s smart, a hard worker, and also cute with quirkiness. Abbi draws all of Weston’s family into her light and they can see why Weston supposedly broke his rule for never dating, even if they never knew it is a total farce.

These two truly belong together and it shows the longer they spend together, if only they could figure it out themselves.

Boyfriend is a wonderful feel good book, that is light on drama and full on playfulness.

Synopsis:

A new hockey player to steal your heart this fall…

The dreamiest player on the Moo U hockey team hangs a flyer on the bulletin board, and I am spellbound:

Rent a boyfriend for the holiday. For $25, I will be your Thanksgiving date. I will talk hockey with your dad. I will bring your mother flowers. I will be polite, and wear a nicely ironed shirt…

Everyone knows it’s a bad idea to introduce your long-time crush to your messed-up family. But I really do need a date for Thanksgiving, even if I’m not willing to say why. So I tear his phone number off of that flyer… and accidentally entangle our star defenseman in a ruse that neither of us can easily unwind.

Who knew that Weston’s family was even nuttier than mine? He needs a date, too, for the most uncomfortable holiday engagement party ever thrown.

There will be hors d’oeuvre. There will be faked PDA. And there will be pro-level awkwardness…

Boyfriend is a full-length book for Weston and Abbi!

Review – Kings of Blood and Money by Ker Dukey

58411643

Kings of Blood and Money; Underworld Kings 
(A standalone within a multi-author series)

Publication Date: October 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: MFM/New Adult/Mafia/Taboo/Dark Romance

Author: Ker Dukey

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hit the ground running – what a crazy, intense, mind-blowing story!

This dark book may not be for everyone, but if revenge, violence, and super angsty romance fits your wheelhouse, then these Kings will quench your thirst.

Taken from her home as a child, Freya, is kidnapped and locked away in the Remington’s home. With questions and mystery surrounding why she’s not only taken, but locked away, she’s kept like a trophy or a prize won from war, but an unwanted prize. Freya is not allowed to interact with the family and yet the Remington twins hold a fascination to her, considering they are just a few years older than her. She doesn’t understand why Noah and Remi are allowed to roam the house and have friends, but she is a prisoner under the same roof.

There were so many questions for so many chapters, that kept me up late reading, because I just had to know…this book was intense!! Can you tell by my run on sentence and punctuation!!

From the beginning of Freya’s interactions with Noah and Remi there is a distinct difference between the two brothers. Noah absolutely loathes Freya upon sight and Remi is fascinated with her. This doesn’t change as they grow and mature, but those emotions just shift. Hate is never far from love and fascination is just a step away from obsession. The question then becomes, can Freya love them back when she ultimately learns the truth of why she was taken.

These boys work for their father and he’s part of the underworld. What they do isn’t sunshine and rainbows, but it is their life.

Kings of Blood and Money is filled with twists and turns with lots of darkness thrown in to boot. It’s a good addition to the Underworld Kings series.

Synopsis:

This is not a story of love.
This is a story of revenge and the bond created from it.

Noah

The Gallo family took everything from us.
They killed my mother and sister, leaving me and my twin brother fighting for our lives.
My father was supposed to be there that night. He should have been there. Should have protected them—us.
When you strip a man of all he cares about, you’re left with a soulless entity seething with primal rage. He promised to turn Gallo’s bloodline to dust to get his retribution.
And he did.
All but one.

Freya

I was seven years old when I was taken in the night. I don’t remember much of life before that.
All I know now is the glaring eyes of a boy who hates me, and the comfort I find in the boy whose face mirrors his.
I’m not part of this family, but they’re all I have familiar as one.
To hate is easy.
And I do hate them.
But to love even in hate is what hardens you, strengthens you, gives you reason.
The truth is I shouldn’t love them, that all these years are leading somewhere I won’t want to go.
But I do…
Love them.
I love them both.
The only question left now is, do they love me?

Part of a multi-author series of standalone books filled with mafia families waging war, danger and violence, arranged and forced marriages, angst, love, and everything
in-between, The Underworld Kings Series

I grew up with three boys who vowed to always protect me.

Vaughn, Nico, and Cruz started as my neighbors.

Then, they became my best friends.

And in the end, they were my entire world.

We thought we were invincible. That nothing and no one could ever tear us apart.

It’s funny how murder has a way of changing that, isn’t it?

This is the story of our beginning.

This is the story of our destruction.

*CALLOUS BOYS is a 45k word prequel to the Callous Boys of Crystal Cove series. This is a dark (#whychoose) reverse harem story, meaning the heroine winds up with three or more love interests by the final installment. This book may contain triggers for sensitive readers. Due to mature subject matter, it is recommended for readers 17+ only.

Read Kay’s Review: Callous Boys

Laura Lee is the USA Today bestselling author of steamy and sometimes ridiculously funny romance. Laura won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again!

Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances, especially those that make her laugh.

Review – Taken by K. K. Allen

58023466. sy475

Taken; Enchanted Gods #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: October 5, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Fantasy/New Adult Romance

Author: KK Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Epic! Adventurous, full of love and excitement. It is everything that a fantasy series needs and K.K. Allen delivered.

I was heartbroken, along with Kat, at the end of Fated when Johnny left. As we discovered he was not only a missing piece in helping to fight evil in Apollo Beach, but he took Kat’s heart with him as well. Their love story was just beginning, but his need to avenge his parent’s death overrode his need to stay. Crushed didn’t even begin to describe how I felt, but their journey wasn’t over, thankfully.

Taken picks up almost a year and a half later and as time has moved on, Kat’s heart is still mending from the events that occurred almost eighteen months ago. There has been no contact from Johnny, Apollo Beach has been peaceful, Kat is making amends with her father, and she has finally decided to move on with her life. Can we say love triangle once more, but aside from that, peaceful times is the perfect moment for chaos to erupt in Kat’s life, especially when she’s feeling comfortable.

Taken weaves back and forth through the present and the past year and a half to fill in gaps of not only what Kat has been up to, but also where Johnny has been. Yes! We finally get a look inside of the mysterious man that has pulled at the heartstrings of Kat for the past few years. His part of the story always took my breath away. Loved every second inside of his head.

Even as Johnny and Kat work on mending their broken relationship, they work even harder at finding a solution to stopping Erebus, even if it means sacrificing herself to do it. Kat has come a long way from the girl we met in Cursed. 

This book is full of suspenseful adventure, destined romance, lots of magic, and uncovered secrets. It’s an epic journey that shouldn’t be missed. This trilogy should be read in order and not as a standalone.

Synopsis:

USA Today Bestselling Author, K.K. Allen, continues to take readers on a deeply romantic and extraordinarily suspenseful adventure in a contemporary fantasy series.

In the epic conclusion of the Enchanted Gods trilogy, Katrina Summer faces the biggest threat of all…The final book releases on October 5th!

Kat is finally picking up the pieces of her broken heart and moving on when all goes awry at the Arctic Masquerade Ball. Everything Kat has worked for is shattered when she lands in the arms of someone who will divert her path—and her heart—once again.

To top it off, Erebus is back in Apollo Beach, and his latest act of evil strikes close to the heart. Now, there’s no turning back.

Erebus has his sights set on the mysterious energy source, and he needs Kat’s help to retrieve it.

Kat will do anything to keep her friends safe—even if that means surrendering herself to the God of Darkness.

Excerpt from The Taste of an Enemy, Book One

“What?” I chuckled as I slipped on my socks and shoes.

“Nothing.” She shrugged her shoulders. “I’m just impressed, is all.”

I chuckled and Beck shoved his sister’s chair, almost making her fall. “That’s my friend, asshole. You don’t get to be impressed.”

“No. She’s right.” Josie was still staring at me too. “I really expected you to have the smallest dick.”

“I feel like I should be offended.” I leaned back in my chair.

“It’s your personality.” Allie shrugged. “You know, cocky guy, small dick. Showy car, small dick.”

“Okay, Allie.” I pressed my elbows into my knees and looked across the fire at her. “Truth or dare?”

She stared at me, and I had a feeling that no matter what she picked she wouldn’t do it. “Truth.”

I let my gaze slide to Eli before it went back to her. I shouldn’t have even called her name. I should just ask her something stupid and move on, but my heart raced in my chest, and I didn’t hesitate with what I asked her next. “When was the last time that you were truly turned on? I mean really and truly, couldn’t-think-about-anything-else turned on?”

A few people snickered, but I didn’t look away from her. She didn’t pull her gaze away from me either as she answered, but I knew her answer was a lie the moment it left her mouth.

“When Eli kissed me.”

“Carson, truth or dare?”

“Truth.”

“When was the last time you were really and truly turned on? And I mean to the point that you actually considered kissing the girl?”

“Oh shit.” That came from Olly, but no one said anything to stop us.

“Just about any time I’m with you, but if you’re looking for a specific moment, the night the cops walked in while I was going down on you.”

Laughter rang out around us, but neither of us was deterred.

“Allie, truth or dare?”

“Truth.” There was no hesitation in her eyes. She wasn’t scared of what I had to say.

“Do you actually like Eli, or are you just pissed off at me?”

“This is the exact reason people think you have a small dick.” She crossed her arms. “You assume that everything anyone does it about you when it isn’t. I actually like Eli, for your information.” She tucked a blonde curl behind her ear. “Carson, truth or dare?”

“This is about to get messy,” Josie whispered to Beck, but I heard her. She was right. It probably was.

“Dare.” I cocked my head to the side and looked at her.

“I dare you to stop being such an asshole and just tell us what the hell your problem is.”

“My problem?” I rubbed at my jaw. “Currently my problem is you. You haven’t barely spoken to me in days, you’ve been avoiding me like the plague at community service, and now…”

“Now what?” She was angry.

“Now I have to sit here and watch you with him.” I pointed at Eli, and he had the nerve to fucking smirk at me.

“I haven’t spoken to you because the last time we spoke, you made it very clear where we stood. I’ve been avoiding you because I don’t want to deal with you, and you’re going to have to continue to watch me with him because I like him. And it’s the oddest thing, but he likes me too.”

“Truth or dare?”

“I’m done playing this stupid game.” She pushed out of her seat, and I knew that Eli was about to follow her.

“Truth or dare, Allie? It’s not that hard.”

She spun back around to face me, and I could see the anger in her eyes. “Fine. Dare.” She held out her arms because she thought by ending the truths, she was going to end this argument between us.

“I dare you to kiss me.”

“That’s not happening.” Eli had the balls to say that out loud to me, and it took everything inside me not to close the space between us and finish what we had started last weekend.

“The last time I checked, you weren’t Allie’s boyfriend, and you don’t speak for her.” I looked back to Allie, and she was staring at me. “Allie can either kiss me or she can drink.” I lifted the bottle of liquor and shook it between us.

“You kissing me changes nothing.” She shook her head.

“Then it won’t hurt.” I shrugged my shoulders and tried to act like I didn’t care one way or another, even though I didn’t know what would happen if she walked away from me now. “If you’re so into Eli and kissing me won’t change anything, then what are you so scared of?”

He’s a criminal—an abomination.

We’re wrong in every way.

If only I could’ve convinced my heart.

His lips whispered promises of all the stars in the sky.

I dreamt of a love that would last forever.

We were gorgeously young and desperate for one another.

But we’re star-crossed.

Fate had decided our course.

Leaving us to cling to each other as we crumbled to ash.

His need became possession.

My innocence turned jaded.

Our families declared war.

All that remained was hate.

But Calder was raised by wolves. The rules didn’t apply.

I was his until he said otherwise–for better or for worse.

Our love story’s bathed in crimson and drenched in bullets.

Because sometimes, Romeo comes with tattoos, guns, and a taste for blood.

Review – The Deceit of a Devil by Holly Renee

58386453. sy475

The Deceit of a Devil; The Boys of Clermont Bay #4 
(#2 within a duet, #4 within a series)

Publication Date: September 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Duet/New Adult/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Holly Renee

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Redemption, heartbreak, and big angsty emotional turmoil with lots of tears…Holly Renee pulled out all the stops on the way to second chance love for the second half of this duet.

Carson and Allie have danced around each other for years….YEARS!! Of course their love story was going to be big with all the feels and lots of bumps. They were not going to escape each other without bruises, but dang…grab the tissues before getting comfy. Their story is hard won.

Yes, Carson had a lot of groveling to do after Eli let the cat out of the bag on the virgin bet right at the end of book one, but honestly, their hurt runs so much deeper than any bet. Allie deciding to sleep with Carson was because she finally felt comfortable with him again, she was hurt only because she figured Carson was playing her all along. Carson had been mistreating her for years and was she wasn’t sure if she was being duped or not. Sleeping with him was just the top of her bad decision making when it came to him and she was more angry at herself for falling into his traps.

Trust is a delicate thing and just at the moment Carson had been earning it back, Eli broke it for him. Carson finds himself at a loss. He never meant to hurt Allie and he could have cared less about the bet, but how does he get her trust back when he’d barely had it to begin with? He works hard at trying to earn it back, but Allie isn’t easily swayed by his pretty words this time around.

These two have so much to work on in regards to past hurts, present hurts and how not to hurt each other in the future. Sealing up those cracks so they stop causing damage and yet also focusing on just being happy is a lot harder than it looks.

This story is all encompassing with the emotions, plus full of tons of steam!!  Carson and Allie are actually an amazing couple, now there is one couple left in the Clermont bunch…will they or won’t they? I’m excited to see how the last ones standing play out.

Synopsis:

Sinless. Stunning. Damaged. Tempting. Allie Taylor had been the girl I hated for as long as I could remember.

And now she loathed me just as much.

It didn’t matter that I betrayed her to save her.

Completely devastated and infuriated by my dishonesty, she had no intentions of ever trusting me again.

Her trust was shattered, her hate raging on with each second. She would never look at me the same again.

Our past was full of pain and lies that could never be forgotten.

I knew what I did was irreparable, but I refused to let her walk away without another chance.

I should have left things in the past.

I didn’t.
I couldn’t.
I won’t.

I needed her. Even if it cost me everything.

Review – Just Like Heaven by Trilina Pucci

53711571. sy475

Just Like Heaven; St. Simeon Prep #1 
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: September 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Mafia/New Adult/Star Crossed Lovers Romance

Author: Trilina Pucci

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A true, written in the stars, tragic romance story for the modern ages.

As a reader, why are we drawn the the classic Romeo and Juliet tragic love story? I believe, it’s because no matter the odds, no matter the consequences their love was so passionate, so breathtakingly pure…at the end of the day, if we could experience that for even one minute I think we would.

Calder Wolfe and Sutton Prescott clicked immediately. Their souls knew each other on a level even they couldn’t explain, but their parents forbade them from being together. While they understood the reasons logically, their hearts wouldn’t except it on a deeper level. The soul deep bond they had already made, just upon gazing upon one another, connected them and cutting that cord was next to impossible.

Calder and Sutton are the new Romeo and Juliet. Two people from the opposite sides of town. From two families who are not only at odds with one another, but Sutton’s father is a senator with a platform that is all about reforming drugs and violence in the city. Whereas Calder’s father works with the Irish mafia, the very organization that helps bring in the corruption. These two star crossed lovers will never have the support of their families no matter how much they love one another. It’s tragic and heartbreaking and made for juicy, angsty reading!!

While Calder and Sutton try their best to stay away from one another, it’s nearly impossible. They are destined to be together after all, but outside forces work against them and the first part of this duet ends on a big cliffhanger…I was holding my breath through the entire last half of this book!!

Just Like Heaven is amazing and I can hardly wait for the second half, perhaps I’ll be able to breath again.

Meet Kandi
Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Review – Callous Boys by Laura Lee

58684189. sy475

Callous Boys; Callous Boys of Crystal Cove #0.5 
(A prequel to a new series)

Publication Date: October 1, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Reverse Harem/New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Dark Romance

Author: Laura Lee

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

What a fantastic beginning! High emotions with thought out plot and drama. I’m already hooked on the Callous Boys!

Andi, Vaughn, Nico and Cruz have been best friends for their entire lives. As they grew and hormones became involved, noticing their hot friend was growing boobs, and boys being well….boys. They had a friendship that they didn’t want broken by Andi’s boobs, but that they also were hoping would evolve into something more given time and maturity.

Vaughn, Nico, and Cruze made a pact between the three of them, that none of them would make a move on Andi until she was ready and showed an interest in one of them, since all three of them were interested in her. Unbeknownst to them, as they kept their feelings hidden for her, she also did the same. Andi’s feelings for each boy never distinguished between each one, but only grew stronger for all of them over the years as she wanted each one equally. In her world she didn’t know how that would work, so she kept quiet about her feelings, since it was all or none. That is until a new boy, Hunter, came into town.

Everything changed with Hunter began flirting with Andi. Finally fearing they may lose what they never had, it was time to make a move, but how do Vaughn, Nico and Cruze decide when none of them have ever let Andi know how they feel about her? How do  they threaten their friendship without losing everything between them?

I loved that this poly relationship worked slowly into what they might want. Just because they had all been friends for years didn’t mean they knew how to work a romantic relationship. Guys in general can be super territorial and Nico, Cruz and Vaughn were no different. Cruz is by far the most laid back of the three, but he also understands the value of losing time and doesn’t want to lose Andi at any cost so he’s all in no matter what it takes. While Nico has a tougher home life, at least in the thought of living a poly lifestyle, he is closer in wanting to share like Cruz is. However, he’s also all guy when it comes to sharing his toys, like Andi…sharing is hard, just ask Vaughn who hates sharing anything. He’s a total caveman. While he’s never truly had a problem when it came to their friendship, they all know within a romantic relationship Vaughn would be the most possessive, but Andi also knows deep in her heart she can’t love one boy without loving all three.

This relationship grows slowly while they talk about the logistics, reality, and emotional ramifications of really diving into it. There are some very cute and funny moments that come out of those talks because let’s face it…how does it all work and do the swords cross? LOL

There is also a mysterious, mafia element that I’m dying to know more about. There is some shady business going down within the families, so what is exactly happening?…It’s all clouded in secret with a big cliffhanger to boot! I’m so there to find out what happens as the story continues because I need to know!!

Synopsis:

From USA Today Bestselling Author, Laura Lee, comes the prequel to this new dark reverse harem romance series, available exclusively in the Brutal Boys on Devil’s Night anthology

I grew up with three boys who vowed to always protect me.
Vaughn, Nico, and Cruz started as my neighbors.
Then, they became my best friends.
And in the end, they were my entire world.

We thought we were invincible. That nothing and no one could ever tear us apart.

It’s funny how murder has a way of changing that, isn’t it?

This is the story of our beginning.
This is the story of our destruction.

*CALLOUS BOYS is a 45k word prequel to the Callous Boys of Crystal Cove series. This is a dark (#whychoose) reverse harem story, meaning the heroine winds up with three or more love interests by the final installment. This book may contain triggers for sensitive readers.  Due to mature subject matter, it is recommended for readers 17+ only.

CALLOUS BOYS is available in the Brutal Boys on Devil’s Night Anthology on October 1, 2021.

Review – Apathy by L.K. Reid

Apathy; Secrets of Winworth #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Occult/Dark Romance

Author: L.K. Reid

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I had to sit and really let this book soak in once I was finished. It’s been running through my mind over the last few days, and not that other books don’t, but this particular book was like the blurb warns…once you enter Winworth you don’t leave.

Apathy is a dark mystery, that is seeped in twisted thoughts and drowning in wicked madness. Everyone at one point or another is a suspect in the crimes happening throughout the town.

Every.

One.

No one is safe from the suspicion that is running rampant. The plot twists and winds in a way that I never could pinpoint or nail down anyone in particular and I was completely thrown off by the shocking cliffhanger. That almost never happens when I’m thrown off base, so perhaps that is why this book is still reeling in my head. Excellent job L.K. Reid!!

Skyler, for most of the story, is drowning in pain, emotional turmoil, grief, and deep, deep sadness. She is beyond what I would call depression. She is swirling in darkness for how deeply she is struggling, but why she’s suffering, we don’t know the depth of her pain for a large chuck of the book. As the pieces come together her mental state begins to make sense, but coming out of that deep pool…is it really for the best? GAH!! Go back Skyler!! She is going to need so much therapy.

Ash is a new student in their school and quickly works his way into their group. He came to town with his own nefarious plans, but is he the one causing things to implode, or could he be Skylar’s salvation? There is a lot of shadow surrounding him, but his character slowly comes to light the more we get into the book. Is he good, is he bad…there is so much to uncover!?!

There is a lot at work that I will not give away, because I loved being shocked and finding out the secrets myself. However, know this book is dark and covers some topics that may offend some readers, so heed author warnings incase that happens to be you.

This is only book one and with a big cliffy, there is a lot more to dive into back in Winworth. Welcome to the darkness.

Synopsis:

There were sicknesses in this world even holy water couldn’t wash away.

In vicious nights, beautiful monsters lay.
Some with faces known, some ready to play.
Unsure of a friend, unsure of a foe,
Be certain of nothing you think you know,

Because what once enters Winworth,
never leaves again.

Skylar Blackwood thought she knew what monsters looked like.
But in Winworth, nothing is what it seems.

Not the arrival of a stranger with eyes that see too much, and lips that taste like danger.
Not the young women who begin disappearing in the night.
And certainly not the people in the sleepy town she grew up in that begin to turn on one another.

One truth is undeniable, something wicked is loose in Winworth.
No one is safe, and trusting the wrong person could cost Skylar everything.

Trapped between the two worlds as secrets start to unravel, what little sanity Skylar has left threatens to shatter, leaving her with more questions than answers.

Turns out, real monsters are never what they seem.

APATHY is the first book in the Secrets of Winworth series with dark themes that might be triggering to some readers.

Review – Greek by Kandi Steiner

57479498. sy475

Greek; Palm South University #7 
(#7 within a series)

Publication Date: September 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/College Romance

Author: Kandi Steiner

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The final book in this fun loving, dramatic series that wrapped around my heart and I’m going to miss. The characters became my friends and I’m going to miss them. All the drama, all the passion and all the relationships. It’s all been so, so good.

At the beginning of this series; Jess, Erin, Cassie, Ashlei, and Skyler all became greek sisters at PSU and began the journey into a deep friendship and a bond of sisterhood that would lead them into heartbreak, self discovery, relationships that would work, relationships that wouldn’t work, ups and downs, fights, job paths, etc… It all comes down to this final semester when you know real life is right around the corner, will everyone survive?

Jess was left with a choice when the last book ended. She was happily in love with Kade when Jarrett came back into her life. Jarrett was her first love, but her shattered her heart. Kade was the boy who was there when she was at her lowest and made her believe in love again. She has a decision to make over two men, because she does love them both, but she can’t keep them both. I love how this story played out and that Jess took her time to really think about the over all ramifications of her decision. This particular story always pulled at my heart and really tore me up, so I couldn’t be happier.

Bear and Erin had the biggest hurdles to overcome throughout this entire series and I adore them as a couple. I love how they both have grown as individuals and in their relationship together. They make each other stronger and through their support of one another they have blossomed into one of my favorite couples.

Adam and Cassie was one of my favorite couples from the beginning of this series, but this last semester proved to be once again one of their hardest. As Adam was working in another state the long distance was putting a strain on their relationship, would it survive Cassie’s final semester at PSU?

Ashlei suffers a huge setback in her pole class, but the rest of her life is actually pretty amazing. Of all the girls Ashlei kind of has her life together. She has a great job and a great guy…could things get better? They just might for the girl who had a rough start at the beginning of this series.

Skyler who was riding the top of the world with a great guy, won second place in a poker tournament, and was now the president in the greek house her world was falling apart. She didn’t know how to forgive Kip when he didn’t know how to apologize. Her life was in shambles, but she also didn’t know how to move on without the most important person in her life.

With this series coming to a close I’m really going to miss them and all the drama. I’m going to wonder what has happened as they’ve aged five or ten years from now. Perhaps there will be a reunion special. One can only hope.

Synopsis:

The epic conclusion to the Palm South University Series…

Sisterhood is forever, but can it survive life’s biggest curveballs?

Erin fights for justice while Bear continues to fight his demons in order to be the man he wants to be for the woman he loves.

I walked into Wings and Things and spotted Eli as soon as I made it through the door. He smiled before standing and coming to meet me. I couldn’t tell if anyone else was already at the table, and I tried to remind myself that I shouldn’t care. Tonight was about having fun and getting to know Eli.
Carson didn’t matter for either of those things. I would just drown him out and pretend he wasn’t there. That was what I was used to doing. That was what the two of us had been doing for years.
Even though I was already a little but irritated that Eli hadn’t offered to pick me up. My dad was irritated by that fact too.
“You look beautiful.” Eli grinned before pulling me into a hug.
“Thank you.” I breathed in the scent of his warm cologne, the smell familiar and calming. “You look nice as well.”
I looked up at him as he let me go. He was much taller than me, although shorter than Carson, and he had a smile that made me feel comfortable.
He grabbed my hand in his and led the way back to the table. I fixed my hair while I was still blocked from view, and I planted the best smile I could manage on my face as he pulled out the chair for me that was directly across from Carson.
“Thank you.” I settled into my seat and tried to avoid making eye contact with Carson.
“Allie, this is Kimberly. Kimberly, Allie. I think you all might know each other.”
I looked across the table at Kimberly, and of course I knew her. We had gone to school together since grade school, and I had hated her almost as long. She was popular, conceited, and a perfect fit for Carson.
“Of course.” I nodded and pulled out my menu. “How are you, Kim?”
“I’m perfect.” She giggled and looked over at Carson. His hand disappeared under the table, and even though I couldn’t see it, I knew that his hand probably rested on her thigh.
I wanted to rip it off.
“Awesome,” I mumbled and tried to focus on the menu.
Carson laughed under his breath, but I ignored him.
“What are you getting?” I looked to my right where Eli sat. “Do you want to share some wings?”
“Oh.” He looked up from his menu. “I was thinking about getting the burger.”
“A burger at a wing place.” Carson scoffed and tossed his menu down on the table. “I’ll share an order with you, Allie. Kim’s getting a salad.”
He didn’t give me time to answer. As soon as the waitress came to our table, Carson opened his mouth. “My girl Allie and I are going to share a large order of wings, extra ranch for both of us. No carrots. She hates those.”
I looked at him like he had lost his mind because I was pretty sure that he had.
“What can I get you to drink?” The waitress was now looking at me.
“Um, just a Coke, please.”
Everyone else ordered their food, and I fidgeted with my hands under the table.
“So, Allie, how is school going for you?” I looked up at Eli. I had almost forgotten he was there.
“It’s all right. I’m so ready for fall break, though.”
“Me too.” He nodded. “Are you going anywhere? My family is taking a trip to Europe.”
“No.” I almost choked on the word. Sometimes I forgot just how far apart my family was from those who went to Prep. They were made of money, old money to be exact, and guys like Eli had never had to think about working or how he’d pay for college. “We typically stay home and do a Thanksgiving meal at our house. It’s real low-key.”
And my dad would still be working every day except for Thanksgiving, and my small house would be busting with people. My grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins. We were always together on holidays, and I loved it.
It may not have been Europe, but it was ours.
“That’s cool.” He nodded and turned his chair to where he faced me better. “We’ve been going to Europe for years now. My parents love it, and they take us about every other year. Have you ever been?”
“To Europe?” I shook my head, and suddenly I felt ridiculous. “No. The farthest I’ve been is Disney World.” I didn’t mention that had been almost ten years ago.
I could hear Carson and Kimberly talking across from us, and I hoped he was too enthralled with her and her perfect face to even consider listening to our conversation.
Eli laughed like I had just told a joke, but I hadn’t. “That’s too bad. I bet you would really like Europe.”
“What makes you think that, Eli?” Carson was leaned back in his chair with his arm resting on the back of Kimberly’s.
Eli laughed nervously and looked between me and Carson. “It’s Europe.” He shrugged his shoulders.
“But you don’t know anything about Allie specifically that would make her love Europe, correct?”
Eli opened his mouth, but Carson continued.
“Like you have no clue that she’s been dreaming of going to Paris forever, and she has this little Eiffel Tower key chain that she’s had on her set of keys since she’s had them. Or that she thinks she’s part Irish because she has a little bit of green in her eyes.”
“I didn’t realize you knew so much about her.” Eli was no longer aloof. He was sizing Carson up, and I wasn’t here for a pissing contest.
“Well, now you do.” Carson stared back at him with the same unrelenting gaze, and I felt like I was going insane.
Carson hadn’t given a shit about me since that night he needed me and I wasn’t there. If he wasn’t ignoring me altogether, he was making me wish he was, and now all of the sudden, he wanted to share wings and spew facts about me like he was my best friend.
“Stop,” I hissed. “You’re being an ass. Aren’t you supposed to be on your own date?” I looked over at Kimberly, and she looked uncomfortable. I couldn’t blame her. I felt uncomfortable too.
The waitress arrived back at our table with food in hand, and we were spared from whatever Carson was going to say next. He looked down at the food, and his bright eyes looked so hollow. He scrunched his brow, something he always did when he was upset, and his jaw stiffened. I didn’t know if he was angry with me or with himself.
But I didn’t want to find out. I quickly grabbed a wing from our plate and took a huge bite. Sauce dripped down my chin, but I didn’t stop. The food was a distraction. If we were eating, then we weren’t talking, and I couldn’t stand to hear anything more from Carson right now.
Not after everything he just said. Not with the way he had brought up memories of me like it wouldn’t mess with my head.
“This is good.” I wiped at my mouth with the back of my hand. “Do you want a bite?” I looked over to Eli, and he shook his head as he looked at my half-bitten wing.
“Nah. I’m good.”
“Suit yourself.” I shrugged as I looked down at his measly-looking burger.
“I’ll take one.” Carson reached forward, his fingers wrapping around my wrist, and he stood in his seat enough to bring my hand to his lips. I stared at him, shocked by what he was doing, but there wasn’t an ounce of shame in his gaze.
He didn’t look away from me for a second as he bit down into the wing I was still holding, and I couldn’t stop myself from holding my breath as his lips met my fingers. Carson Hale wasn’t just taking a bite of my chicken. He was causing a scene, and part of me wondered how he had gotten so damn good at it.
He ran his tongue over the edge of my thumb, licking up the sauce that had dripped there, and I felt like he had just used his tongue on parts of my body that no one else ever had. I pressed my thighs together as I watched his mouth, and I couldn’t bring myself to care that Eli was watching me as Carson finally let go of my hand and settled back into his seat.
“You’re right, Allie. That’s absolutely delicious.” He licked his lip before picking up a wing of his own, then began eating like that display hadn’t just happened.
I picked up my napkin, quickly dropping my gaze to my lap as I wiped my hands, but I couldn’t get the feel of him off. And I didn’t know if I wanted to.

Start Leon’s duet with The Devastation You Reap!!

mybook.to/TDYR

Blurb:

When something seems too good to be true. It’s usually because it is.

A lesson I learned the hard way.

Every single fear I had about falling for Leon, has just come true in the most brutal way.

The sweet guy act he’s been putting on the past few weeks is over.

The cold, hard truth is… he never wanted me. He only wanted retaliation.

And like a fool, I played right into his wicked scheme.

But I’m not the monster he thinks I am.

Ten years ago, I might have discovered the horrifying truth, but I did the only thing I could. I pushed it down and tried to forget. Tried to survive. Afraid of what might happen at the hands of the monster who ruined both our lives.

But now the truth is out, and the secret Leon has been keeping for a decade is about to poison those he loves, sending him into a darker place than he’s ever been.

Healing isn’t always easy, it’s messy and painful.

The question is, beneath all the hate, will I rediscover the man I fell for, or was he always a fantasy?

Dear Reader,

The Retaliation You Deliver is the conclusion to Macie and Leon’s duet and the final book in the Maddison Kings University. It’s a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.

Read Kay’s Review: Sacred

Blurb:

The next installment in the dark romance series from the bestselling author of the Rebels at Sterling Prep series…

I knew there was more to the threat than we first thought…

I didn’t know that when the truth came out everything would change.

In the aftermath of Darren Creed ripping through the Sinners, the club is in chaos. And Dane will need us now more than ever as he comes to terms with the secrets of his childhood and the scars he bears.

Rhett, Wes, and I are determined to keep him grounded, determined not to lose him to the monsters that haunt his dreams.

Because some monsters are real.

And before we get our happy-ever-after, we’re all going to have to face the things we’re afraid of most.

SACRED is a full length dark enemies-to-lovers/bully romance. This is a why choose novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. It is book three in the series and must be read after SAVAGE and SACRIFICE.

Two angsty romance lovers writing dark heroes and the feisty girls who bring them to their knees.

𝐏𝐎𝐈𝐒𝐎𝐍𝐄𝐃 𝐏𝐀𝐑𝐀𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐄 
❝𝒯𝓇𝓊𝓉𝒽 𝒾𝓈 𝒻𝒶𝓇 𝒸𝓇𝓊𝑒𝓁𝑒𝓇 𝓉𝒽𝒶𝓃 𝒻𝒾𝒸𝓉𝒾𝑜𝓃…❞

𝑾𝒊𝒍𝒍𝒐𝒘
Six years ago, I made a mistake. The worst mistake I could have ever possibly made. I fell in love with the wrong person and … I told him.

Ryan’s always been with me ever since I can remember. It’s been the two of us—side by side. Through every new beginning, every new ‘family’, and every failure. Is it any wonder that the love I had for him turned into something different—something deeper? Something utterly rotten? And is it any wonder that he hates me for it now?

𝑹𝒚𝒂𝒏
I’m a damaged soul, and she’s the only thing that’s ever held me together. But the one woman I want is the one woman I can never have.

She thinks I hate her for her confession, and maybe a part of me does. What I hate more, though, is that I have to push her away to keep her safe. That I have to pretend like I don’t fucking want her when she’s all I’ve been able to think about for the last six years.

We’re no fucking Romeo and Juliet. We’re much worse than that. A love like ours was doomed from the start.
