Review – The Joker by Ashley Munoz

59732834. sy475

The Joker; Rake Forge University #3
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 28, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Friends-Enemies-Lovers/New Adult/Mafia Romance

Author: Ashley Munoz

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A wonderful way to close out this series. The Joker combines suspense, heat, and family.

This book is super steamy! Kyle and Rylie have been best friends since kindergarten, each others ride or die. Their chemistry is off the charts and it shows whether they are between the sheets or seething through their toxic hate.

How do two people who are best friends get to a point of toxicity? After a beautiful night where Rylie and Kyle share their V cards with each other, Kyle disappears. He ghosts her for three years and Rylie breaks. Each year turning darker until she’s a different version of who he left behind.

Kyle didn’t just leave to go vacationing and have fun. He also is a different man than who he once was. He’s covered in secrets along with tattoos and new muscles. His outside may look totally different, but his inside still craves the one girl who has always been his everything.

Can these two reconnect after years apart and broken trust?

The Joker is a great interconnected book bringing all of the characters from the past two books together. However, you can also read this book as a complete standalone as well.

Synopsis:

Kyle James cashed in my V card and then disappeared like I was the finishing act in a magic show.
I vowed to hate my best friend, turn the longing and secret obsession with him into toxic hate and maybe a poorly chosen tattoo.
But as the years passed, I let go of any notions I’d ever see him again…until he sauntered on campus my senior year as a new transfer student.
All of Rake Forge was obsessed with his inked skin and that darkness that seemed to seep out of every methodical step he took.
I wasn’t. I knew the boy underneath, and while I wanted to know where he’d been…I would never ask.
Until my dad needed a favor. His team required a way in with my ex-best friend, and his contacts.
I knew Kyle would see through it…but I went anyway.
Suddenly, my world, made of black and white was bleeding color…and he was at the center, daring me to trust him.
My heart, blind and foolish chose to not only trust but to love him too.
I really should have known better.
I was merely a way in for my father, and for the man, I loved…I was just a way out.

*This is the final book in the Rake Forge Series*

Read Kay’s Review: Triple Threat

EXCERPT

“You know,” Ford says, smirking as he sidles up beside me in the hallway after our second class of the day, “I could give you a ride.”
“You’re a perv.”
He laughs, the sound warming parts of me I’d never known existed. “Technically, you’re the perv. I meant an actual ride. In my car. Not on my cock.”
The mention of Ford’s cock has a flood of heat coursing through me. I elbow him hard in his side and storm ahead of him. Based on his stupid laughter, I’d say he’s enjoying tormenting me.
You enjoy it too…
I don’t let myself dwell on that thought for too long.
A heavy, muscled arm wraps around my shoulders as Ford catches up. He’s so touchy-feely. I hate that I barely know the guy and my body responds as though he’s familiar to me.
I roll my eyes but don’t shake him off. For a second, I can pretend I’m a normal college-aged woman with a good-looking guy who’s interested in her. There aren’t controlling, abusive fathers or little sisters who need looking after. There isn’t pressure or stress or drama.
Several people glance at us as we walk by. I’m not sure what’s drawing their attention. My money’s on the sexy beast of a man who seems to be staking a claim on me. A flutter in my chest indicates just how much I like that idea.
Which is completely dumb.
I can allow myself a friend, but nothing more. Not when there’s so much at stake. Blatantly going against Dad’s expressed wishes at having me date someone in his power circle would be the worst possible thing I could do. Not only could he backtrack and keep me from attending college, he might somehow punish Della with his anger.
I’m feeling quite somber and dismayed that it takes me a second to realize we’ve stopped and Ford is speaking to me.
“This is the part where you’re supposed to be impressed,” he grumbles, waving his hand toward a sleek vehicle. “Seriously. We can’t be friends if you won’t even acknowledge my baby.”
He’s pouting.
Over a dumb car.
For some reason, this amuses me. It is, in fact, a gorgeous car, but the fact I haven’t gushed over its beauty and he’s pouting about it, has a bubble of laughter escaping. One attempt at smothering my giggling leads to an unladylike snort, which has me erupting with more laughter.
Ford releases me, muttering under his breath, and hits the fob. I bite on my bottom lip to contain my cackling. He flings open the door and gestures in overemphasis as if to prove the inside is just as pretty. It’s the look of pure exasperation on his face that has me losing it again.
“You’re a real bitch, Laundry,” he grits out, though there’s no real venom in his tone. “No one’s ever laughed at my car before.”
“You said I was different and you were right. I bet you’re rethinking making me your friend.” I arch a brow at him now that the giggling has faded. “See you around, Chevy.”
His maple syrup eyes slowly peruse down my body, lazily drinking up every detail of me. I try not to squirm but when someone like Ford Mann is practically devouring you, it’s hard not to.
“Let me take you home,” he urges, his voice dropping several octaves and managing to reverberate through me. “I’ll go slow.”
The fire in his eyes says he’s talking about more than just a ride in his car. He’s talking about the ride of my life. All I’d have to do is give in.
Gravel crunches behind me and a sleek, black Mercedes SUV pulls up. I recognize Trey, one of Dad’s drivers, sitting behind the wheel. Time to go.
“My ride’s here.” I motion toward the Mercedes. “Maybe some other time.”
Like never.
Unfortunately.
Ford peels his stare from me to give Trey a once-over. When his eyes find their way back to mine, they’re harder than before and glint with something almost calculating. The warmth between us is snuffed out and a chill works its way down my spine.
“Goodbye, Ford.”
“See you soon.” He winks at me but the action is almost taunting. “That’s a promise.”

Blog Tour – Kiss and Tell by Maya Hughes

56674056. sy475

NEW RELEASE

Title: Kiss And Tell

Series: St. Francis University #1

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: Contemporary Romance

BLURB


“Wouldn’t most guys love a little no strings attached hook up?“

“Maybe, but most guys don’t deserve you. I want to be one who does. And I want to be all tangled up in your strings.”

Newly arrived on campus, I knew two things. 1) No one could know my dad was the president of the university and 2) football players were bad news.

My run in, the literal kind with my neighbor cranked up the heat and sparks flew.

A new college campus. A secret bound to explode in my face. And a football player neighbor who is bad news in the best of ways.

Reid Riddick was hotness personified, so of course I literally ran into with him–well, more like he plowed into me.

I didn’t know he was a football player when I started falling and now I can’t stop. A stolen kiss later and my heart races whenever he looks at me from across the quad.

But my secret would spell disaster for him.

I’m the daughter of the college president. The college president who’s been feuding with his football coach for years. Their bitter campus war leaves us teetering on the edges of a divide we can’t see a way across.

Resisting him is more than I can handle. He’s risking it all for me. His team standing. His football season. His pro future. Throw in a campus gossip site. My out of control new friends. His way too hot roommates. College traditions. A secret campus bar and the only guy who’s ever made me feel like he can’t live without me. And I have one last secret.

Our star-crossed love is my first and I want him to be mine.

Book 1 in the new STFU series – rival campus to Fulton U!

EXCERPT
“Are Ashley and Taylor home?” 

Closing the door, I turned to face him. “No, they won’t be back for a couple—” 

His lips cut off my words. 

He’d bridged the gap between us, and my back was pressed against the metal safety door. His hands pressed into the door behind me on either side of my head, caging me against him, not that there was anywhere else I wanted to go. His mouth was searing and hungry and different than yesterday. It was more in every conceivable way. 

He tasted like mint. 

The tingles spread throughout my body, turning into sparklers under my skin. Hot and bright, the charge ignited every nerve ending. The firm but somehow soft feel of his lips sent the tingles traveling lower, and I gasped, squeezing my thighs together. 

His hands moved from the door to the sides of my neck. His thumbs brushing against my skin fired off even more flares. 

He shifted his hands off me and rested his forehead against mine. “I know this is crazy. I know we said we wouldn’t, but I can’t stop thinking about you. It’s been keeping me up at night how much I wanted to touch you like this again. To kiss you again.” His eyes burned with a fierceness that sent shivers streaking down my spine. 

I swallowed, trying to keep myself from blurting out the first thing that came to mind. “Same.” 

His fingers skimmed across my shoulders. 

Goose bumps rose along my arms, and my breath shuddered under the intensity of his gaze. “Sorry about that. I’ve just been wanting to do that, like really kiss you, for way too long.”

All Rowan wanted was a normal senior year. To fade into the background of her classmates. Instead, her entire world has been turned upside down. Words she never thought she would utter are now a part of her everyday life. Shifters. Powers. Bonds.

Comfort comes from the five fated mates who would do anything to protect her. Their connections are deepening, yet Rowan isn’t convinced all of them want her. Holden has secrets. Vaughn comes to her rescue in one breath and cuts her to the core with the next. But Anson, Lucas, and Keene will do anything to make their bond work and to convince Rowan that she’s all they’ve ever wanted.

They’re all trying, but each new development leaves Rowan reeling. As they realize just what kind of gift Rowan has, they discover it’s impossible to know who to trust.

Because there are those who lurk in the shadows, forces that want the power Rowan has humming beneath her skin. And they will stop at nothing to get it…

**Book two in a continuing three-book series. A reverse harem, why choose romance. Think fated mates, a heroine who has no idea just how special she is, broody, swoony, crazy protective heroes, and a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.**

Review – Deviant Knight by Tracy Lorraine

59976362. sy475

Deviant Knight; Knight’s Ridge Empire #4 
(#1 within a trilogy, #4 within a series)

Publication Date: January 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Dark/Mafia/Enemies-to-Lovers/New Adult Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Deviant Knight is a decadent return to the Knight’s Ridge Empire. Theo and Emmie are addictive, explosive and page turning excitement!

Theo was totally unexpected and also so much more. He’s always given off this intensity; radiating and pulsing right under his skin and it would basically take a cool breeze to make him explode. Yes, as the leader of his group, he’s cool, confident, and collected, but his intense passion that seems focused on one person…yeah, he’s hot, hot, hot!!!

Theo is a total deviant, and maybe just a tad crazy, but his intensity is insanely hot. Tracy took this couple up 50 notches and made this story suspenseful, wicked, and gripping from beginning to end.

Emmie is the perfect girl for Theo. She fights back at every turn, which is most likely why he’s drawn to her. She doesn’t sit around and take his crap and typically finds ways to irritate him more. Their push and pull, back and forth is so delicious it keeps the pages turning until the jaw dropping cliffhanger. I can hardly wait for the next book!!

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you more in her dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

Whoever said to keep your friends close and your enemies closer… was right.

Being around her is the worst kind of torture.

Emmie is an obligation I can’t avoid… an oath I can’t break.

And having her in my life is the last thing I want or need. But thanks to my father, I have no choice.

This Family—this life, is my future, and I’m sure as hell not going to let some spitfire from the wrong side of town get under my skin and in my way.

When the time comes, I will take what I need and walk away. I’ll finally be free from her shadow and she will know the truth, even if it leaves her broken.

The only problem… she might not be the only one left in pieces.

Dear Reader

Deviant Knight is the fourth book in my angst-filled new adult mafia Knight’s Ridge Empire series. It’s the first book in Emmie and Theo’s trilogy. It’s a dark bully romance with themes that might make you squirm in all the right ways!

Review – Cruel Lies by Faith Summers

59967099. sy475

Cruel Lies; Cruel Secrets #1 
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: December 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Secret Society/Intrigue/Dark/New Adult Romance

Author: Faith Summers 

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Full of suspense, mystery, and tons of angry chemistry (enemy-to-lovers boiling over passion kind of chemistry).

Cruel Lies is a mix of mafia, secret society, intrigue, forbidden love, dark secrets, dark moments, basically it had all my favorites mixed into one story. It’s an attention grabber from the very beginning and this is just first half of the duet.

Willow loses her entire family at a young age, but is burdened with a huge secret that tears apart the one relationship she holds dear, Caspian her best friend and first love. Her life ends up tailspinning and catapulting into unknowns she never saw coming, but to make matters worse, her ex-best friend isn’t done ruining her life.

Caspian is used to living under the rule of unrealistic expectations under his father’s unloving hand, but when his father specifically tells him to stay away from Willow, it’s like dangling the forbidden fruit before his eyes. Caspian may have missed his best friend for years, but when she begins at Raventhorn she becomes his forbidden obsession.

At first Caspian only wants Willow for the forbidden passion, but soon long hidden secrets come to light and the old Caspian he thought he’d buried comes out and he suddenly needs to protect the woman Willow has become.

Cruel Lies has so much mystery, passion, and forbidden darkness at every turn. Yum.

Synopsis:

Cruel Lies, the first in the all-new dark Cruel Secrets Duet from USA Today bestselling author Faith Summers is available now!

He’s my villain, my monster, my forbidden path…
Caspian Ivanov and I come from the same dark world.
One where the Bratva and the secret society reign.
And, he’s the son of their ruthless leader.
“I’ll destroy you.”
That’s the last thing he said to me.
It was on the night of the Reaping.
Hard to believe we were ever best friends.
His vengeance is, however, the price I pay for keeping a secret I shouldn’t have kept.
A secret that ripped our families apart.
It made us forbidden to each other.
That’s when he became the viperous devil.
Breathtakingly beautiful but with a cold black heart.
Like any snake, he wanted to poison me.
When our paths collide at Raventhorn University, I stay away from him.
What I don’t expect is to become his obsession.
Or to be forced to become his wife.
Except, we might not get to say I do.
Because someone wants me dead.

Review – Triple Threat by K. Webster

58636977. sy475

Triple Threat; Masters and Mercenaries 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 11, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Reverse Harem/Antihero/Dark Romance

Author: K. Webster

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I love a good redemption story and this a fantastic redemption story times three!!

Welcome back to the dark Morelli/Constantine world where Winston Constantine delivered retribution to three triplets; Scout, Sparrow, and Sully when they messed with his Ash.  This time around Webster has brilliantly whipped up a tale where these three men, who would have seemed beyond redemption, are the dark princes in their own twisted fairytale.

This tale is dark, and so fantastically fitting for the terror triplets. I loved diving into their minds, each man is different, but also similar, sharing a bond that only multiples share. There is also a sibling bond, the link where you love your brother, but also want to murder them. Even after everything they’ve been through, they are thicker than thieves, but this new job may just tear them apart.

Landry Croft is an heiress who’s basically been locked in her penthouse for the past six years, but when she’s finally released to attend college classes, their uncle sees this an opportunity to move in. The triplets are assigned to shadow her to get an inside advantage, using their identical faces to swap out time and get to know the Croft heiress and everything in her life.

Triple Threat is not only a fantastic title, it is how Sparrow, Sully, and Scout live their lives. They are relentless in everything they do in their lives. Where one lacks another picks up and the other watches their backs. Having three of them is a true force to be reckoned with. However, they are also possessive, jealous, and a bit psycho. This is a dangerous combination when dealing with a woman they all want. Can one woman truly work between the three of them?

This dark, disturbing book is soooo freaking good, I’m still sitting here in shock that I fell head over heels in love with characters that originally were so horrible I cheered for their destruction in Winston’s twisted tale. Now, I’m totally rooting for them and adore these terror triplets.

Synopsis:

I’m a prisoner in a prestigious world.

A perfect princess locked in a tower.

My father will never let me go.

Not that I could leave. I would never abandon my little sister. Hope comes in the form of a devilishly handsome man with dark eyes and darker secrets.

With each encounter, I’m lured deeper into the labyrinth. The danger lurking beneath his surface calls to me, even as it warns me away.

Except there’s a new side of him every time we meet. A different danger each time we touch. It’s as if three different men want to devour me.

He’s not just one villain. He’s three.

Review – Kiss and Tell by Maya Hughes

56674056. sy475

Kiss and Tell; St. Francis U #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: January 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Sports/New Adult Romance

Author: Maya Hughes

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A new NA sports series by Maya Hughes…YES!!

💜All new guys to love who live in the Zoo (the football players house)

❤The chemistry between Reid and Leona

🧡All new crazy, fun traditions at a new university

The relationship between Reid and Leona was electric from the beginning and meeting all of the new characters that will take up residence at STFU was fun and exciting. I feel that is always the hardest part when stepping into a brand new series, getting to know the new characters and setting up the world around them. Maya did a great job of exciting me about what’s to come while still keeping the plot moving on the primary storyline.

Both Reid and Leona faced a tough situation with Leona being the daughter of the university’s president and Reid being a member of the football team. I won’t sugercoat it by saying the STFU’s coach is anything but a giant dick. The coach doesn’t like anyone, especially the president, so when Reid and Leona venture down the path of a relationship, I just say…this book is ripe with tension.

I’m looking forward to more from this series, especially the next couple, it looks like an enemies to lovers full of heat and passion.

Synopsis:

“Wouldn’t most guys love a no strings attached hook up?”
“Maybe, but most guys don’t deserve you. I want to be one who does. And I want to be all tangled up in your strings.”

Newly arrived on campus, I knew two things. 1) No one could know my dad was the president of the university and 2) football players were bad news.

My run in, the literal kind with my neighbor cranked up the heat and sparks flew.

A new college campus. A secret bound to explode in my face. And a football player neighbor who is bad news in the best of ways.

Reid Riddick was hotness personified, so of course I literally ran into with him–well, more like he plowed into me.

I didn’t know he was a football player when I started falling and now I can’t stop. A stolen kiss later and my heart races whenever he looks at me from across the quad.

But my secret would spell disaster for him.

I’m the daughter of the college president. The college president who’s been feuding with his football coach for years. Their bitter campus war leaves us teetering on the edges of a divide we can’t see a way across.

Resisting him is more than I can handle. He’s risking it all for me. His team standing. His football season. His pro future.

Throw in a campus gossip site. My out of control new friends. His way too hot roommates. College traditions. A secret campus bar and the only guy who’s ever made me feel like he can’t live without me. And I have one last secret.

Our star-crossed love is my first and I want him to be mine.

BLURB

Sterling Golden—Cocky football star. Rich Playboy with a secret. Guy I’d most like to throat-punch. The cherry on top? I’m stuck pretending to be this d-bag’s girl for the next few months.
When I spotted him sneaking out the Dean’s window—a woman whose reputation precedes her—I could’ve minded my business. But it’s not every day you catch your nemesis in such a compromising position, so I did what any self-respecting person would’ve done.
I added fuel to the scandal that ignited, then laughed while the cops hauled him off in nothing but handcuffs and his boxers.
Of course, the arrogant prick found a way to rope me into the lie that got him out of trouble. Which means the only way I come out of this unscathed is to go along with it, pretend we’re a thing.
Most girls would kill to be on the arm of a Golden triplet, but I’m counting down the days until it’s over. In public, we give the city the show they crave—a chance to witness their local bad boy falling in love. But when we’re alone, the gloves come off and we give each other hell.
Only, who knew exchanging insults and cruelty could feel a bit like… foreplay?
There’s an expiration date on this arrangement, but as we turn up the heat to convince our city this “relationship” is the real deal, Sterling and I sometimes forget that it isn’t. He might think his recent fall from grace was a disaster, but if he makes me regret this, I swear I’ll make his life a living hell.
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice… your belongings might mysteriously catch fire.
Consider this your final warning, Mr. Silver, because it’s the only one you’ll get.
***
Mr. Silver is a full-length standalone novel (roughly 100k words). This book can absolutely be read on its own, but for the sake of flow and clarity, it’s recommended that you start with book one, THE GOLDEN BOYS (a bully romance trilogy within this series).
Do you love the frustratingly hot push and pull of a good enemies-to-lovers romance? Then you’ll love getting to know Sterling and Lexi. Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

Review – Mark of Stars by Tessa Hale

58274793. sy475

Mark of Stars; Shifting Fate #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: January 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Shifting/Paranormal/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Tessa Hale

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An exciting, non-stop ride from start to finish! Mark of Stars ramped up the steam, action, and angst.

As Rowan and her mates begin to bond, she’s plagued with doubt not only over their feelings for her, but also over her growing powers. No one seems to understand what exactly she is because everytime they try to label it she evolves. The only solace she feels is when she’s with her mates, but she has so many doubts about that too. Do they like her for her or the mating bond?

Feeling forced into bonding isn’t something she wished upon them, even when they assure her it isn’t like that at all. Even Vaughn, the one mate who takes bonding the hardest and would break it if he could. However, he’s also all growly and grouchy and the fiercest when anything comes close to hurting Rowan. Be still my heart.

Each bond mate not only has his own unique power, but also his own personality when it comes to cuddling or talking with Ro. I like how they all uniquely bond with her and have their own individual time along with time together which is super hot.

The plot never slows, it’s quickly paced and you’d wonder how they ever have time to eat or sleep, but it does happen. Cuddling between the five of them would seem impossible, but they make it work and I love that I can visualize everything that Rowan is experiencing. It is only told through her POV, but having the story told this way only gives more suspense to the plot.

This entire series has been very well written and I can hardly wait for the continuation of this amazing series.

Synopsis:

Book two in the Shifting Fate series by Tessa Hale.

Mr. Silver; Kings of Cypress Pointe #5 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/Fake Dating/New Adult Romance

Author: Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

From the very beginning of this series, I never thought that one of the Golden siblings would replace top ranking of the other, but with each subsequent book it’s happened. Sterling and Lexi have not only joined the ranks with the other Golden couples, their story has turned out to be one of my favorites.

Fake relationships AND enemies to lovers are two of my favorite tropes and Mr. Silver has both. Reading this fantastic book was like diving into my favorite foods. Once I start I can’t stop, it’s yummy and delicious, leaving me full and ultimately satisfied with that high feeling and always wanting more when I’m barely done. That was me reading this entire book. Start to finish, I couldn’t put it down, laughing, sighing, and loving this couple through to the very last page.

Lexi Rodriguez is a total spitfire from the very beginning. She doesn’t budge an inch allowing Sterling into her emotional circle. Does she use his situation to her advantage…oh yeah she does, which I absolutely adore about her. Lexi is no wallflower to the ultimate Golden boy of Cypress Pointe, but I also love that she softens along the way, allowing Sterling to view the sensitive woman underneath that tough exterior she always wears. That girl has all been but extinguished inside her and Sterling has the rare advantage to know the real Lexi without abusing that privilege.

Sterling finds himself in a pickle and the only person able to pull him out of it just so happens to be the one girl who hates his guts. Sterling and Lexi, frenemies at best, form a fake relationship to help Sterling out of said pickle and while on a good day these two hold their animosity at arms length at best, they now have to look like they are dating in the public eye. How will they ever pull this off?

Understanding, appreciation, and emotional support go a long way in building what was broken between them, and while neither was looking for something long term out of this fake relationship (they were honestly just hoping not to kill one another) things changed that neither one of them ever saw coming.

I think what I loved most of all is that neither one of them originally went into this fake relationship with nefarious plans set to destroy the other one, but as their relationship grew organically they also didn’t run and hide.  Both Sterling and Lexi were a beautiful surprise to this fantastic series and like I said above, this book was like enjoying one of my favorite meals. Totally delicious!

New Release – Wildcat by Rebecca Jenshak

Everyone knows the coach’s daughter is off limits. Right?

Wildcat by Rebecca Jenshak is now live

I met my dream girl.

That’s right. She’s stunning and the worst bartender I’ve ever seen.

I should have gone home and gone to sleep—dream girl or not. I had an early morning and the season was starting soon. But when she threatened me with boy band karaoke I couldn’t help myself. I went. The stars aligned.

I have never felt more alive or wanted anyone more than I want her.

When it’s time for me to head on my annual pre-season boys trip, I barely let her go.

It’s been a week and I can’t stop thinking about her.

Except there she is. Right here at the Wildcat’s kickoff party.

And as luck would have it, my dream girl is the coach’s youngest daughter.

But everyone knows the coach’s daughter is off limits. Right?

Wildcat is a full-length sports romance with a hot-as-puck hero, the coach’s daughter, and an unfortunate case of mistaken identity.

The Wildcats are the youngest team in the NHL. On the ice, they’re cocky, determined, and ready to take the league by storm. Off the ice? They’re always up for a wild time.

Review – Loyalty in the Shadows by Veronica Eden

58410182. sy475

Loyalty in the Shadows; Crowned Crows #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: December 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Secret Society/Grumpy-Sunshine/New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Veronica Eden

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A grumpy/sunshine, mixed with suspense made this dark romance a total page turner!

Isla and Levi were magnetic on the page. Their grumpy/sunshine banter gave laughter at the perfect moments especially among all the dark times. Isla’s sassy vibes not only threw Levi for a loop, but she threw him off kilter because she didn’t respond to his darkness like he thinks she should. It makes their chemistry off the charts and the funny moments really pop.

Continuing the suspense from book one, the Crows continue to look for clues into Rowan’s brother’s death and even more mystery is added as Isla Vonn is added to mix and her kidnapping attempt makes the plot thicken.

Attending the same prep school, Isla grew up with the Crows. Always attracted to the silent man in the shadows, she never suspected that Levi spent so much time in them because he was obsessed with her and once she came under their protection, that obsession grew into something more.

I loved all the interaction with the other Crows and the possibilities into where their stories could go. This book contained a lot of mystery, suspense, and steamy good times and I cannot wait to read more as the other boys to fall for their women and as they unravel more of the dark mystery.

Synopsis:

𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒔 𝒅𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒚.

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 they’ll never give up.
The city’s seedy underbelly won’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.

Loyalty in the Shadows is a dark new adult enemies to lovers college romantic suspense intended for mature readers. This book is the second in the Crowned Crows series following a gritty brotherhood of antihero bad boys and the feisty heroines that capture their hearts. The plot continues across the next novels and each book in the series should be read in order. If you’re not a fan of morally bankrupt book boyfriends, steer clear. This mature new adult romance contains dubious situations, crude language, and intense sexual/violent content that some readers might find triggering or offensive. Please proceed with caution.

Review – Wicked Empire by Tracy Lorraine

59067362. sy475

Wicked Empire; Knight’s Ridge Empire #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: December 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Dark/New Adult/Bully/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Lorraine pulled out all the stops for this roller coaster of a ride with an epic end to the beginning of this fantastic trilogy!

Seb and Stella are a totally badass couple and perfectly made for one another. In this third book of the trilogy, these two not only race against finding the threat who has been attacking them, but they also face new obstacles that threaten their new found happiness. It’s a real emotional ride.

Seb and Stella are extremely hot, hands down, but there is a ton of mounting tension between another couple, which made this book extra good. While Seb and Stella’s story may be over, Tracy has set this world up with rich character development and fully connected plot lines from her other books, but never fear, this world completely stands on its own.

Knight’s Ridge Empire has been one of Tracy’s best so far and I’m totally looking forward to more from these characters and this world.

Synopsis:

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.

She didn’t want to believe me.

She wanted to believe the threat wasn’t really there.

But as the sirens ring out in the distance and she stares down into my eyes, she can no longer deny what’s right in front of her.

I’m not going to go down without a fight.

And I’m sure as hell not going to lose her now.

Even as our stubbornness tries to force us apart, severing everything we’ve built thus far.

With our nerves frayed and tempers close to breaking point, our fractured family sets about discovering the truth.

But we soon uncover more corruption and betrayal that only causes more pain to those I love.

Our entire empire is at risk, and it’s time to put the past behind us and carve out the future we deserve.

Dear Readers,

Wicked Empire is the third and final in Stella and Sebastian’s trilogy and the first couples 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.

Wicked Knight (Knight's Ridge Empire, #1) Wicked Princess (Knight's Ridge Empire, #2)

Review – Wildcat by Rebecca Jenshak

Book cover for Wildcat (Wildcat Hockey) by Rebecca Jenshak

Wildcat; Wildcat Hockey #1 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 14, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports Romance

Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Fun and flirty, Wildcat launches a new generation of hot hockey players to fall in love with.

Have you ever met someone you’ve instantly connected with, felt like you’ve known for years, or bonded with immediately? Leo Lohan and Scarlett Miller have that from the very moment they meet one another and their one hot and perfect night together should have been the start of something great….instead it was the start of every – what not to do after you meet someone – tale. It’s super cute and I loved this entire book.

Leo is normally a stable guy, smart and hard working. He hasn’t had a one-night stand in quite a long time, and when he catches the eye of Scarlett he wasn’t looking for a one and done, but unfortunately his crazy hockey schedule made it where he didn’t contact her after their amazing night together. When he finally had a moment to stop and think about how much time had actually passed, not only did he felt horrible, but he also ran into her again, at his coach’s house. Oops.

Can they work past this dating faux pas? Not if Scarlett has anything to say about it. She doesn’t date sports players. Been there and still recovering from the scars of that huge life mistake. Can she forget about the smexy Leo, not when she suddenly sees him everywhere and everyday. She loves delicious eye candy, but when did life begin working against her?

Wildcat is the perfect blend of flirty, fun, with a splash of angst that continually brings me back to Jenshak’s books, but this one in particular had me turning pages so fast I never wanted to leave and then I hated how fast I read the book. This new world, contains a new group of guys to fall in love with, who are not only fun when they all hang out together, but the glimpses we get into their personalities and backgrounds already…well, I’m terribly excited to return over and over again.

Synopsis:

I met my dream girl.
That’s right. She’s stunning and the worst bartender I’ve ever seen.
I should have gone home and gone to sleep—dream girl or not. I had an early morning and the season was starting soon. But when she threatened me with boy band karaoke I couldn’t help myself. I went. The stars aligned.
I have never felt more alive or wanted anyone more than I want her.
When it’s time for me to head on my annual pre-season boys trip, I barely let her go.
It’s been a week and I can’t stop thinking about her.
Except there she is. Right here at the Wildcat’s kickoff party.
And as luck would have it, my dream girl is the coach’s youngest daughter.
But everyone knows the coach’s daughter is off limits. Right?

Wildcat is a full-length sports romance with a hot-as-puck hero, the coach’s daughter, and an unfortunate case of mistaken identity.

The Wildcats are the youngest team in the NHL. On the ice, they’re cocky, determined, and ready to take the league by storm. Off the ice? They’re always up for a wild time.

Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

Review – Merciless Kings by Becca Steele and C. Lymari

57310913. sy475

Merciless Kings; Boneyard Kings #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: December 9, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Intrigue/Reverse Harem/Bully/New Adult Romance

Author: Becca Steele and C. Lymari

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The mystery of this story stays throughout the entire book and WOW the cliffhanger at the end, Merciless Kings, is a hot, bully read that is unputdownable!

The Boneyard Kings set their sights on Everly at the start of the school year, something she doesn’t want and didn’t ask for. The reputations of the Kings, bad boys from the wrong side of town, invade her life to the point that she can barely breathe, but for what nefarious purpose?

Saint, Matteo, and Callum are brothers, not by blood, but bonded through tough experiences and the foster system. These Kings play a game of cat and mouse with Everly, herding her towards their own agenda, but each in a different way.

Saint is definitely the easy going, goofier guy, with a touch of the devil inside him. Although there are times he gives off the vibe where Everly shouldn’t be taken in by her laid back persona, but does she listen?

Matteo reminds me of a teakettle right on the verge of exploding. He lives his life like a powder keg one match away from detonating everyone around him. However, Everly is also drawn to the duality that Matteo gives off.

Lastly, we have Callum, the cold, calculated King. He views the world in black and white and there is no room for the grays that Everly may live in. To him she is either a pawn or the queen there is no in between.

I’m truly excited to continue this journey and see how Everly unlocks the Kings secrets, but how they pull out hers as well.

Synopsis:

They say bad things happen in threes.
The first was when I lost my parents.
The second came when I had to leave behind everything I knew to move across the world to live with my only remaining relative.
But what was life for, if not for living? So I kept moving.

Then the third thing happened, just as I was about to begin my junior year at the prestigious Blackstone University.
I caught the eye of not one, not two, but three of the most infamous guys on campus. The three guys from the wrong side of the tracks.
Saint, Mateo, and Callum.
And now that they have me in their sights, I know that there’s nowhere I can hide.
There’s no escape from the Boneyard Kings.

Saint. Mateo. Callum.
Merciless. Vicious. Ruthless.
I don’t know what I’ve done wrong, but they have me in their sights.
There’s nowhere I can run, nowhere I can hide.
No escape from the Boneyard Kings.

Now the three boys had hate in their hearts.
To get what they wanted, they had to play their parts.
These three boys were wise, cunning, and sharp.
Because the streets bowed for no one, unless a merciless king you’d become

Merciless Kings is a dark college enemies to lovers/bully reverse harem romance, and contains mature content. This is book one in the Boneyard Kings series, and cannot be read as a standalone.

Review – Sweet Devil by Becker Gray

58158471. sy475

Sweet Devil; Hellfire Club #5 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Enemies to Lovers Romance

Author: Becker Gray

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Rhys Huntington is the sweet devil!! Rhys is the boy everyone loves to hate, but underneath that devilish exterior is a heart that beats only for his queen. This book was totally worth waiting for, emotional and perfect.

Rhys has never made any attempt to stop the rumors or name calling referring to him as the devil. As a matter of fact he prefers to keep people at arms length, everyone except one person, Serafina van Doren.

He pushes and pushes Sera, their battle of wits and wills finely walk the line of hate and have since they started at Pembroke, but does Rhys really hate Sera or does he push her for other purposes?

Locked in a battle of wicked games can Sera really win against the devil himself? What is his endgame and does she really hate him or could that line have crossed into something else?

For lovers of this series, this book will not disappoint. I was totally emotional for baby Lucifer. Rhys and Sera are fantastic together and Rhys is the perfect devil of Pembroke.

Synopsis:

Sera & Rhys at last…

People like to say the devil made them do it.

And they would be right. I can bend anyone to my will. After all, I am the devil of Pembroke Prep.

Only one person dares defy me. The one person I’ve only ever wanted to be an angel for. But she despises me almost as much as I crave her. Serafina van Doren is the one temptation I can’t indulge, not with the secrets that I keep.

But with the clock running out maybe it’s time to tempt her to the dark side.

Genre/Tropes: Age-Gap/New Adult/Unrequited/Forbidden Romance

Author: Saffron A. Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The absolute, unrequited, torturous angsty feelings…this is the very essence of These Thorn Kisses. So. Darn. Good.

To understand the circle of Bronwyn’s life and how she ended up at St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers and the man who set her free to really be herself…well, it all boils down to the inspiration of the same man. Wyn was never allowed to be herself in the presence of her parents and she was forbidden to show anyone her talent, much less pursue her skills. One act of defiance, a very public act of defiance sent her to St. Mary’s after meeting a stranger who encouraged to be herself. A stranger who was none other than Conrad Thorne. The brother of the girl who would become her best friend once she started attending St. Mary’s. A school that ironically Conrad hated sending his own sister to after her own outburst of defiance, but that is another story.

Fate has a twisted sense of humor for these two. Bronwyn never thought she’d see her stranger again, she never even knew his name, but when Conrad took a job at St. Mary’s as the new soccer coach, it seems fate finally intervened.

It was never Conrad’s intention to pursue a student. It certainly wasn’t why he took a job at his sister’s school. Conrad is stable, predictable, sturdy, dependable. He would never break the rules and pursuing a relationship with a student falls into those rules of what everyone thinks of him. He also wonders why his ex-girlfriend, the woman who is now married to another man, thinks that he would delve into an affair for these very same reasons, the temptation is there, but with whom?

The angsty, yearning emotion is really good in this story. There is a lot at stake for this couple, more than just their emotions, and the deeper they get the more complicated things become.

What I’ve loved as this series has progressed is the relationship between the girls; Wyn, Callie, Salem, and Poe. There is a deeper understanding of how they’ve each arrived at St. Mary’s, what brought them together as friends and more importantly what’s kept them together through their rough times. I also love that St. Mary’s is a reform school, but for each of these girls it has been a safe haven from whatever outside chaos they needed to escape from.

Conrad has been dependable for sooooo long he doesn’t know how to let go and let someone else care for him. Wyn desperately tries and wants to care for him, but trying to find a crack in his armor is near to impossible. However, if anyone has a chance, perhaps the young artist can capture his essence and show him how much he is truly loved.

Also….Conrad Thorne is a dirty, dirty talker (so hot) and Wyn Littleton is sassy and absolutely perfect for Mr. Thorne.

Synopsis:

Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.
