New Double Release – Corrupt Knight and Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

 Release Date: December 8

The night we met, she was just another one-night stand. 

We were never meant to see each other again, and my best friend certainly wasn’t supposed to go and fall in love with her best friend. 

 

Collateral damage… she’s already broken my biggest rule when we hooked up for a second, third, fourth, and maybe a few more times. 

 

She’s everywhere I turn. I can’t escape her or the things she makes me feel. 

 

Thanks to my best friend wanting to do anything to make his girl happy, she’s the newest teacher at Knight’s Ridge College. 

 

If I needed to stay away before, now I have no choice. Not only is she an obsession I don’t need… she’s forbidden. 

 

But I’ve never been as good at following the rules, so much as breaking them. I need to be careful before she gets too close to break me. 

 

The consuming darkness inside threatens to take over following my father’s death, and I find myself craving her light even more than ever. 

 

The only problem is, I don’t want her to rescue me. I want to drag her down… corrupt her. 

We’re a match made in hell that first night we met, so why stop now when playing with fire is so much fun.

Corrupt Princess 

Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next instalment of her forbidden dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.
I learned from a very young age that the only person I could count on was myself.
For years I’ve been content with meaningless one-night stands and zero promises for tomorrow.
I had a good thing going, until he crashed his way into my life… and heart, and wrecked them both.
Nico Cirillo.
The bad boy mafia prince and the one man who’s ever left me craving more. Not that I’ll admit that.
And now, he’s not only a mistake I’ve made time and time again, he’s everywhere I turn. 
Taunting me.
Tempting me. 
Doing everything in his power to screw up my life, tarnish my reputation, and corrupt the only dream I’ve ever had.
But while I’m pushing as hard as I can to keep him away, his reckless decisions and hot-headed behaviour have forced him to reconsider.
His U-turn is enough to give me whiplash, but it’s nowhere near enough for me to lower my walls and let him in.
To give him a chance he doesn’t deserve.
It’s going to take more than a bit of grovelling after all the ways he’s hurt me, even if it is on his knees.

Blog Tour – Sneaking Around With the Player by Rebecca Jenshak

Sneaking Around with the Player by Rebecca Jenshak is now live! 

It was supposed to be a quick conversation with a cute boy at the airport while I dodged my ex and his new girlfriend.
We weren’t supposed to trade numbers.
He wasn’t supposed to be a football player.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to fall for him since he’s attending a college a thousand miles away.
I saw past his jersey. And he saw past my last name.
Now it’s semester break, and by some Christmas miracle, he’s going to be close. So close.
I want to meet him again, but there’s just one problem.
My older brother can’t, under any circumstances, find out I’m dating his rival.

Blog Tour – The Frat Boy by Nikki Sloane

The Frat Boy by Nikki Sloane is now live! 

He’s majoring in your desires

Colin Novak is the big man on campus. Huge—if the rumors are to be believed.  Nearly every girl at Davidson University has had a ride on him . . . everyone, except me.

Which is fine. This frat boy may be irritatingly hot, all carved muscle with a deceptively wholesome smile, but that’s irrelevant. He’s a Sig.

When I catch his fraternity cheating at the Greek Week tournament, he denies it–causing our rivalry between houses to escalate. Colin and I may have started the mud fight, but it grows into an all-out war, and ends with us expelled from our houses.

Now I’m homeless and it’s all his fault.

So, while answering an ad for a leading role at an adult film company wasn’t part of my career path, the work comes with a lot of perks. Steady salary. Accommodations close to campus. A safe place to explore my fantasies.

Except when I show up for my audition, my partner is none other than my new archenemy—Colin. And our sexual chemistry is explosive.

We hate how attracted we are to each other, and I despise that I want every scene to be with him. Because the longer we live together, the more I see he’s not who I thought he was.
This frat boy was so easy to hate . . . but what if he’s even easier to love?

Review – Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Princess; Corrupt Trilogy #2, Knight’s Ridge #14
(#2 within a trilogy, #14 within a series)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Forbidden/Dark/Mafia/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Corrupt Princess picks up right where Corrupt Knight left us with a big OMG!! The toxic relationship between Nico and Brianna built to a boiling a point and we were left wondering if Nico was set out to not only destroy his future but Brianna’s as well while he was spiraling on his destructive path.

This book was very emotional. A big shift from toxic masculinity where men shove everything deep down inside and ignore the problem, but a look at actual healing. I have to say I loved it!! Not to say that this wasn’t still a dark, mafia because it very much was, but Nico’s grief was weighing heavy on his shoulders and without some major changes he was going to self destruct and take out anyone around him. That wasn’t healthy and I’m glad it wasn’t brushed aside.

What I also loved about this book, probably more than I have than any of the other second books in the trilogies of this series, was witnessing the cohesiveness of the group as a whole and how the men and women all work together. There is a reason why each couple has been attracted to each other, but as a girl group they all fit, and as guys they all work together and it all clicks in this book more than ever. The aspect of the “found family” really stands out and I love it!!

We are left with another big cliffhanger as this is the second book in the trilogy, but the third book is coming soon so we won’t have to wait long, but that means I can hardly wait to find out what happens.

Synopsis:
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next instalment of her forbidden dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

I learned from a very young age that the only person I could count on was myself.

For years I’ve been content with meaningless one-night stands and zero promises for tomorrow.

I had a good thing going, until he crashed his way into my life… and heart, and wrecked them both.

Nico Cirillo.

The bad boy mafia prince and the one man who’s ever left me craving more. Not that I’ll admit that.

And now, he’s not only a mistake I’ve made time and time again, he’s everywhere I turn.

Taunting me.
Tempting me.

Doing everything in his power to screw up my life, tarnish my reputation, and corrupt the only dream I’ve ever had.

But while I’m pushing as hard as I can to keep him away, his reckless decisions and hot-headed behaviour have forced him to reconsider.

His U-turn is enough to give me whiplash, but it’s nowhere near enough for me to lower my walls and let him in.

To give him a chance he doesn’t deserve.

It’s going to take more than a bit of grovelling after all the ways he’s hurt me, even if it is on his knees.

Review – Corrupt Knight by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Knight; Corrupt Trilogy #1, Knights Ridge #13
(#1 within a trilogy, #13 within a series)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Forbidden/Opposites Attract/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A total page-turner, with a forbidden aspect, in this enemies-to-lovers story.

Nico is drowning in his grief. He’s hurting and lashing out at everyone he loves and turning to destructive means to numb his pain after losing his father. Within that destructive path is Brianna, the one woman whom he can’t seem to stay away from, but he also treats like dirt. Is it his fault that she comes back for more every single time? While his friends have tried everything to bring Nico back from the darkness, they resort to one last measure and reach out to Brianna to ask for help.

While Brianna has a huge heart and wants to help Nico, her best friend-Jody-is also immersed in this dark world and escaping Nico and his path to self destruction is practically impossible, no matter how much she’d love to walk away. Seeing Nico slipping further into darkness she just can’t say no, but when she lands a job at Knight’s Ridge College and becomes Nico’s teacher she knows she should step away, but once again, getting pulled into his orbit…she has a hard time saying no.

The back and forth, push and pull from these two made my pulse race, especially knowing Brianna’s huge heart. This is book one in a trilogy and ends on a big cliffhanger which will pick up in Corrupt Princess.

Synopsis:
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a new dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

The night we met, she was just another one-night stand.

We were never meant to see each other again, and my best friend certainly wasn’t supposed to go and fall in love with her best friend.

Collateral damage… she’s already broken my biggest rule when we hooked up for a second, third, fourth, and maybe a few more times.

She’s everywhere I turn. I can’t escape her or the things she makes me feel.

Thanks to my best friend wanting to do anything to make his girl happy, she’s the newest teacher at Knight’s Ridge College.

If I needed to stay away before, now I have no choice. Not only is she an obsession I don’t need… she’s forbidden.

But I’ve never been as good at following the rules, so much as breaking them. I need to be careful before she gets too close to break me.

The consuming darkness inside threatens to take over following my father’s death, and I find myself craving her light even more than ever.

The only problem is, I don’t want her to rescue me. I want to drag her down… corrupt her.

We’re a match made in hell that first night we met, so why stop now when playing with fire is so much fun.

LITTLE DEMON
I was raised in a world where money and power are at your fingertips. My father is a LORD, a very respected member of a secret society that knows no bounds. When tragedy struck my family, we discovered we weren’t untouchable. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any worse, I was shown what hell is really like. Then he came and saved me. The devil disguised as my personal hero. But of course, nothing is for free. Not when a soul is up for grabs.

I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.

Easton Bradley Sinnett—Sin—uses his power for his own sick pleasure. Like a typical Lord, he never thought about the consequences of his actions. I grew up with him, obsessed over him, craved him. He was who I pictured when I imagined doing things my body shouldn’t want.
One day, I realized he was not who I thought he was. It didn’t change anything, though, because I was already too far gone. If anything, I fell for him harder.
Every now and then, someone enters your life who flips it upside down. Sin wrecked me in the worst way, and I thanked him for it by serving on my knees.
As they say, nothing lasts forever. Men like him never stay with a woman like me. I’m what they use, not keep. So when he threw me away, I shouldn’t have been all that surprised.
My body had always craved the darker side of love. The kind that left bruises and scars. I was what most would call unholy. And when the devil whispered in my ear that he loved me, I was more than determined to show him just how devoted I could be.

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61404986-habit

About the book:

Everyone always says the best way to get over someone is to get under somebody else. Well, I guess I’ve never been one to believe it. Cheated on by my football-star boyfriend and betrayed by my closest friend, I’m not looking for yet another chance to get hurt. 

Kye Collins isn’t just a guy. He’s 𝘵𝘩𝘦 guy. A star on a D1 football team. The owner of a panty-melting smile and abs that’ll have you fanning yourself and tingling in places you shouldn’t. Oh … and he’s my brother’s best friend. 

When he convinces me to hang out with him, I warily take him up on his offer. After all, as long as I keep my guard up, I won’t get hurt. Besides, a friendship between a male and a female can work, right? 

What starts off as an innocent alliance becomes dicey when he suggests we fake date. It seems like a good plan. A solid scheme to help him get his mom off his back while also making my ex mad. If I can hurt the guy who caused me pain and make the mean girls at school jealous, that’s a double win. Plus, hanging out with Kye Collins is fun. 

One kiss—that’s all it takes. A kiss only meant for the eyes of those who hurt me. A kiss that’s supposed to be a big F you to those devils lurking in the shadows, watching my every move. But that same kiss makes me come alive in a way I never have. Makes it impossible for me to ignore that feelings I have whenever he is around. And it forever changes the relationship between Kye and me. 

Sometimes, tragedies bring people closer together, but in our case, it pulls us apart. But when Kye runs, I’m not far behind, ready to catch him.

This is book three in the Florida East University series.

ABOUT HANNAH GRAY

Hannah Gray spends her days in vacationland, living in a small, quaint town on the coast of Maine. She is an avid reader of contemporary romance and is always in competition with herself to read more books every year.

During the day, she loves on her three perfect-to-her daughters and tries to be the best mom she can be. But once she tucks them in at night–okay, scratch that. Once they fall asleep next to her in her bed–because their bedrooms apparently have monsters in them–she dives into her own fantasy world, staying awake well into the late-night hours, typing away stories about her characters. As much as she loves being a wife and mom–and she certainly does love it–reading and writing are her outlet, giving her a place to travel far away while still physically being with her family.

She married her better half in 2013, and he’s been putting up with her craziness every day since. As her anchor, he’s her one constant in this insane, forever-changing world.

Star offensive tight end on the football team.

He is the complete opposite of me in every way.

I’m quiet. He’s loud.

I’m shy. He’s definitely not.

Everyone loves him. No one knows me.

Fresh out of a breakup, I don’t really trust him, and why should I? Knox is the ultimate player. When I become his English tutor, I tell myself we need to keep things between us strictly business. Watching my mother deal with my ex-athlete father long, long ago taught me to stay far away from that type of man.

Yet Knox is impossible to resist. Next thing I know, we’re getting hot and heavy in the library—and that was never part of the plan. When Knox admits he can’t stop thinking about me, I have a realization.

I can’t stop thinking about him either.

Instead of keeping my distance, I pull him in closer. Until somehow, we’re spending all of our time together and I find myself falling for Knox. Hard.

Will this actually work between us? Or am I getting played?

Order here: https://mybook.to/catchingkye

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/61404986-habit

About the book:

Everyone always says the best way to get over someone is to get under somebody else. Well, I guess I’ve never been one to believe it. Cheated on by my football-star boyfriend and betrayed by my closest friend, I’m not looking for yet another chance to get hurt. 

Kye Collins isn’t just a guy. He’s 𝘵𝘩𝘦 guy. A star on a D1 football team. The owner of a panty-melting smile and abs that’ll have you fanning yourself and tingling in places you shouldn’t. Oh … and he’s my brother’s best friend. 

When he convinces me to hang out with him, I warily take him up on his offer. After all, as long as I keep my guard up, I won’t get hurt. Besides, a friendship between a male and a female can work, right? 

What starts off as an innocent alliance becomes dicey when he suggests we fake date. It seems like a good plan. A solid scheme to help him get his mom off his back while also making my ex mad. If I can hurt the guy who caused me pain and make the mean girls at school jealous, that’s a double win. Plus, hanging out with Kye Collins is fun. 

One kiss—that’s all it takes. A kiss only meant for the eyes of those who hurt me. A kiss that’s supposed to be a big F you to those devils lurking in the shadows, watching my every move. But that same kiss makes me come alive in a way I never have. Makes it impossible for me to ignore that feelings I have whenever he is around. And it forever changes the relationship between Kye and me. 

Sometimes, tragedies bring people closer together, but in our case, it pulls us apart. But when Kye runs, I’m not far behind, ready to catch him.

This is book three in the Florida East University series.

Once they fall asleep next to her in her bed–because their bedrooms apparently have monsters in them–she dives into her own fantasy world, staying awake well into the late-night hours, typing away stories about her characters. As much as she loves being a wife and mom–and she certainly does love it–reading and writing are her outlet, giving her a place to travel far away while still physically being with her family.

Review – The Sinner by Shantel Tessier

The Sinner; The Ritual series #2
(Standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Taboo/Forbidden/Secret Society Romance

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Break every rule, cross every line and jump into the taboo world of The Lords. This book was intense with a capital I!!

Walking the dark line in this world means opening yourself to the devil and the devil has his eye on his own personal demon. I’d like to call Sin and Elli toxic, but their relationship is their own kink and probably the only thing non-toxic in their dark world. Don’t worry it makes sense.

This book is heavy and super dark. Definitely Shantel’s darkest to date, where she delves into lots of morally gray territories. Please make sure to read her TW’s if this kind of book makes you pause. Personally, I love reading how characters back themselves into corners, even the kind with no moral codes to speak of, because sooner or later that character will need to get themselves out of that corner and when they do those slippery morals are so fun to watch as they spin them around. That anticipation, that rush of what they will do, is fun to read.

Elli and Sin cross so many boundaries, it could make a reader cringe, and in a normal world, for every action their should be a consequence, but this dark world doesn’t have normal consequences and like I said above you either like this dark world or you don’t. Sin has no f…cares to give. Like, seriously none. Well, maybe one, Elli is his. His little demon. Aside from that get out of his way.

I love delving into the darkness that Shantel creates every-single-time. It’s a thrill and fascinating ride. The Sinner did not disappoint.

Synopsis:
An all-new dark standalone romance from the USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Shantel Tessier

LITTLE DEMON

I was raised in a world where money and power are at your fingertips. My father is a LORD, a very respected member of a secret society that knows no bounds. When tragedy struck my family, we discovered we weren’t untouchable. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any worse, I was shown what hell is really like. Then he came and saved me. The devil disguised as my personal hero. But of course, nothing is for free. Not when a soul is up for grabs.

I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.

Easton Bradley Sinnett—Sin—uses his power for his own sick pleasure. Like a typical Lord, he never thought about the consequences of his actions. I grew up with him, obsessed over him, craved him. He was who I pictured when I imagined doing things my body shouldn’t want.

One day, I realized he was not who I thought he was. It didn’t change anything, though, because I was already too far gone. If anything, I fell for him harder.

Every now and then, someone enters your life who flips it upside down. Sin wrecked me in the worst way, and I thanked him for it by serving on my knees.

As they say, nothing lasts forever. Men like him never stay with a woman like me. I’m what they use, not keep. So when he threw me away, I shouldn’t have been all that surprised.

My body had always craved the darker side of love. The kind that left bruises and scars. I was what most would call unholy. And when the devil whispered in my ear that he loved me, I was more than determined to show him just how devoted I could be.

𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒊𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒓 is set in the same world as Shantel’s top 50 bestseller 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑹𝒊𝒕𝒖𝒂𝒍.

Review – The Frat Boy by Nikki Sloane

The Frat Boy; Nashville Neighborhood #4
(#4 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: December 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Erotic/Taboo/Enemies-to-Lovers/Forced Proximity Romance

Author: Nikki Sloane

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
OMG!! Hottest book I’ve ever read…EVER!! Even better, this book has a ton of emotion and a great plot as well. Saying I loved it doesn’t seem to do it justice, but WOW, did I LOOOOOVVVVVEEEE IT!!!!!

There is a lot that leads up to Colin and Madison living in the same house together, but it’s not just a campus house, or an apartment, or even a close proximity that drives their story. Colin and Madison, who are enemies due to all of the circumstances that lead to their homelessness, find their new rooms while working for an adult film company. This storyline is so HAWT I can’t even begin to describe the level of volcanic hotness in this review!!!!! Even more amazing, than my kindle starting on fire, is the emotion Colin and Madison brought to the page. Their story was engaging even aside from the mind blowing naked times. Their vulnerability, their raw nakedness, and I’m not talking about their lack of clothes, it all shines through and what made this book so fantastic.

The entire Nashville Neighborhood series has had all of the best taboo tropes, but this book blew everyone else away. Aside from having MM on the page, everything other combination hit this book, and I do mean everything else. Every situation is explosive and the chemistry between- well, everyone- will warm you up during this cold winter.

Synopsis:
Colin Novak is the big man on campus. Huge—if the rumors are to be believed. Nearly every girl at Davidson University has had a ride on him . . . everyone, except me.

Which is fine. This frat boy may be irritatingly hot, all carved muscle with a deceptively wholesome smile, but that’s irrelevant. He’s a Sig.

When I catch his fraternity cheating at the Greek Week tournament, he denies it—causing our rivalry between houses to escalate. Colin and I may have started the mud fight, but it grows into an all-out war, and ends with us expelled from our houses.

Now I’m homeless and it’s all his fault.

So, while answering an ad for a leading role at an adult film company wasn’t part of my career path, the work comes with a lot of perks. Steady salary. Accommodations close to campus. A safe place to explore my fantasies.

Except when I show up for my audition, my partner is none other than my new archenemy—Colin. And our sexual chemistry is explosive.

We hate how attracted we are to each other, and I despise that I want every scene to be with him. Because the longer we live together, the more I see he’s not who I thought he was.

This frat boy was so easy to hate . . . but what if he’s even easier to love?

Review – Playing Hard to Get by Monica Murphy

Playing Hard to Get
(Standalone)

Publication Date: December 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Sweet, dirty, and completely enchanting. Knox and Joanna are pure magic on the page and I couldn’t get enough!

For a man who is labeled a player on campus, which he is – and he will admit it, Knox is one of the sweetest, most endearing, and openly honest book boyfriends you will run across. He’s currently in his senior year of college, feeling the pressure of the upcoming draft, his class schedule, fitting in PT, and now he needs to fit in a tutor for a class he’s struggling with. On the plus side, the tutor he hires is the girl he can’t stop thinking about, Joanna, or his Jo Jo.

Joanna is quiet, recovering from a recent breakup, and really, really doesn’t like football. When Knox Maguire keeps popping up in her life, he isn’t her type at all, not that he isn’t pretty eye candy, but aside from that, he is not the kind of man she would date. However, his honesty and his persistence works its way under her skin and the temptation of Knox breaks down every single barrier she originally threw up.

These two are more than chemistry, they are pure magic. Their relationship grew without drama and with tons of heart behind it. Playing Hard to Get is one of those feel good books that make you swoon and sigh with big heart eye emojis all over it!!

Synopsis:
Knox Maguire is the king of our college campus.

Star offensive tight end on the football team.

He is the complete opposite of me in every way.

I’m quiet. He’s loud.

I’m shy. He’s definitely not.

Everyone loves him. No one knows me.

Fresh out of a breakup, I don’t really trust him, and why should I? Knox is the ultimate player. When I become his English tutor, I tell myself we need to keep things between us strictly business. Watching my mother deal with my ex-athlete father long, long ago taught me to stay far away from that type of man.

Yet Knox is impossible to resist. Next thing I know, we’re getting hot and heavy in the library—and that was never part of the plan. When Knox admits he can’t stop thinking about me, I have a realization.

I can’t stop thinking about him either.

Instead of keeping my distance, I pull him in closer. Until somehow, we’re spending all of our time together and I find myself falling for Knox. Hard.

Will this actually work between us? Or am I getting played?

Review – Sneaking Around with the Player by Rebecca Jenshak

Sneaking Around with the Player; Holiday with the Players #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: December 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Holiday/Sports/Forbidden Romance

Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Adorable meet-cute between Stella and Beau in an airport that turned into witty banter through texting and meaningful conversations through phone calls. This relationship was just too cute and it all happened while they were thousand of miles apart. I loved it!!

Such an adorable idea and I loved this couple for all of their sweet moments, but it was unique because they made it happen when they weren’t even in each others presence. In today’s world with all of the technology it probably happens more often than we realize, but on paper this story could have run dry pretty quick. However, Rebecca did a great job of keeping the story engaging and moving right along. I also liked how it bracketed Holly’s story, filling in bits and pieces along the timeline, but still reading as a complete standalone if you so choose.

Synopsis:
It was supposed to be a quick conversation with a cute boy at the airport while I dodged my ex and his new girlfriend.
We weren’t supposed to trade numbers.
He wasn’t supposed to be a football player.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to fall for him since he’s attending a college a thousand miles away.
I saw past his jersey. And he saw past my last name.
Now it’s semester break, and by some Christmas miracle, he’s going to be close. So close.
I want to meet him again, but there’s just one problem.
My older brother can’t, under any circumstances, find out I’m dating his rival.

Best read after book one, Snowed In with the Player, but can be read as a standalone.

Review – Catching Kye by Hannah Gray

Catching Kye; Florida East University #3
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Friends-to-Lovers/Sports/Fake Dating/Forbidden Romance

Author: Hannah Gray

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
My favorite couple in this series!

Kye and Winter may be forbidden to date, but their relationship begins as friendship and these two are just fun with a whole lot of flirty added in. That is until they cross that thin line of friends into lovers, but even then their steam is infectious, even with the secret aspect tossed in. However, their story isn’t all hearts and laughs, there is an underlying darkness that, probably because the initial story is so light and fun, carries a heavy weight and really broke my heart when it hit.

Kye is funny, a total jokester filled with sassy comebacks and a ton of innuendo. He befriends his best friends younger sister, Winter, after her boyfriend cheats on her with her best friend. Kye is feeling a little left out himself as Dane and Bama are dealing with their own issues, so stepping up to befriend Winter isn’t totally selfless, but he also hates to see her struggling and completely heartbroken over losing so much. It doesn’t hurt that he’s insanely attracted to her as well, but he also knows Bama would murder him if he crossed a line, so friends it is while Winter gets her groove back. He just never expected that he’d need her as much as she needed him.

The ending was spectacular and it was absolutely the perfect way to close out the series for these three friends.

Synopsis:
This is the third and final book in the Florida East University series. This is Kye’s story.

Winter

Everyone always says the best way to get over someone is to get under somebody else. Well, I guess I’ve never been one to believe it. Cheated on by my football-star boyfriend and betrayed by my closest friend, I’m not looking for yet another chance to get hurt. 

Kye Collins isn’t just a guy. He’s 𝘵𝘩𝘦 guy. A star on a D1 football team. The owner of a panty-melting smile and abs that’ll have you fanning yourself and tingling in places you shouldn’t. Oh … and he’s my brother’s best friend. 

When he convinces me to hang out with him, I warily take him up on his offer. After all, as long as I keep my guard up, I won’t get hurt. Besides, a friendship between a male and a female can work, right? 

What starts off as an innocent alliance becomes dicey when he suggests we fake date. It seems like a good plan. A solid scheme to help him get his mom off his back while also making my ex mad. If I can hurt the guy who caused me pain and make the mean girls at school jealous, that’s a double win. Plus, hanging out with Kye Collins is fun. 

One kiss—that’s all it takes. A kiss only meant for the eyes of those who hurt me. A kiss that’s supposed to be a big F you to those devils lurking in the shadows, watching my every move. But that same kiss makes me come alive in a way I never have. Makes it impossible for me to ignore that feelings I have whenever he is around. And it forever changes the relationship between Kye and me. 

Sometimes, tragedies bring people closer together, but in our case, it pulls us apart. But when Kye runs, I’m not far behind, ready to catch him.

Review – Twisted Secrets by Rachel Leigh

Twisted Secrets; Bastards of Boulder Cove #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Antihero/Suspense/New Adult/Dark/Bully/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
There were so many secrets that unraveled, one after another, leading right up to a twisted ending!

Twisted Secrets really was the perfect title for this perfectly twisted finale. Not only were there multiple secrets revealed, but there was also twisted up feelings, twisted up friendships, suspense and mayhem was also twisted up in this gloriously page turning finale. Everything was brilliantly tied up and I was spectacularly happy with twisted up ending.

Whew…I wonder if I can fit the words; twists and secrets, a few more times in this review??

As for Scar and her three men…well, I’ll leave with this…they go through a lot in this final book. Neo doesn’t make anything easy on anyone, but as we’ve come to know, that’s just Neo. However, the darker the antihero, the deeper we all seem to fall, so Neo gives quite a ride to say the least. As for Crew and Jagger, they get their moments too, because this wouldn’t be a finale if they remained a silent doormat.

Twisted Secrets is twisted, there are a lot of turns and secrets that I never saw coming, and this last book is stuffed full of emotions, which I don’t want to say threw me, but it was another twist.

This entire trilogy was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved diving into this dark, depraved world and would totally recommend to anyone who loves reading morally gray characters.

Synopsis:

The Lawless have been many things:

My friends,

My enemies,

And now my lovers.

All but one…

Neo Saint—my villain dressed in leather with the body of a god and a heart made of stone.

He blames me for his misfortunes.

Wants me to feel his pain.

It’s time he learns I’m not who he thinks I am.

Someone is out there,

opening old wounds and creating new scars.

It won’t be easy bringing these twisted secrets to light,

but it’s the only chance we have of freedom before the darkness consumes us all.

The games might not be over,

but I’m no longer playing alone.

This series must be read in order for the best enjoyment:

About Wrecked But Not Ruined

Ethan

I had everything. I was going to college and having a blast. Enjoying myself and not taking much seriously. But then, two years ago, everything changed.

A car wreck destroyed my life. It sent me into a total tailspin. I walked away, even when everyone said I wouldn’t be able to.

But I haven’t recovered from it.

The only thing I have left is my best friend, but I’m sure he’ll give up on me soon. Even so, I can’t fight the truth . . . I’m irrevocably ruined.

Knox

College is coming to an end, and I couldn’t be happier to finally start my real life.

Ethan and I had plans. So many amazing plans. And then, everything changed. He was in a horrific wreck, but he miraculously survived. Except it took a piece of him.

I’ve tried to help him get it back. Tried to get him to go to a trauma support group and come back to me.

He thinks he’s broken, but I know the real Ethan is still there. The brave, outgoing man I’ve known my entire life. And I’m going to help him see the truth. That he can overcome this.

That he may have been a little wrecked, but he wasn’t ruined.

From USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Michelle Heard, writing as MA Heard, comes a new, full-length Dystopian Romance novel.

Over the past four decades, the dome over our Ecocity has protected us from the deviants living in the forbidden territory. Since the great war ended, our lives have consisted of virtue and order.

Once a year, seven people are sent out to the forbidden lands to see if there are any deviants worth saving. None have returned, only increasing people’s fear of what lies beyond the safe border of the dome.

When I’m chosen as a crusader, the world, as I know it, is ripped from under my feet. In the forbidden territory, I learn things I never dreamed existed – a world I’ve been totally oblivious to. I meet people who freely show emotion and affection. People who dare make their own choices.

It’s frightening and the opposite of everything I’ve ever known.

Suddenly, I have to fight for my life. I’m thrown into chaos where time is running out to become a skilled fighter who will be an asset for the coming war. But my mind’s bombarded with questions – who’s right and who’s wrong? Which side should I fight on?

I don’t belong in this world filled with cruelty and depravity.

Then there’s Chance, my reluctant trainer. The man is the definition of deadly and so attractive I struggle to think straight around him. I’m also pretty sure he would love nothing more than to snap my neck. Cruel, impatient, and harsh, he’s a brute who seems annoyed by my existence.

Honestly, I’m not sure I will survive living with the deviants, never mind fighting in a war. Unless I find my courage and learn to fight for myself, I fear this new world will crush me.

Author’s Note:

18+ ONLY.

This book contains mature language, graphic violence, and explicit content.

Review – Wrecked But Not Ruined by Nicole Dykes

Wrecked But Not Ruined; Sparks of Hope #3
(#3 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: November 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Bi-Wakening/Hurt-Comfort/MM Romance

Author: Nicole Dykes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Ethan has been in the background since the beginning of the Spark of Hope series with hints of his personal story coming through here and there. I know I was curious to finally dig deeper into to who Ethan is and why he suffers from trauma and who he would finally fall for. This book was steeped in healing, while still being super steamy. I loved this friends to lovers trope for Ethan and Knox.

Ethan’s mental PTSD is heartbreaking to read. For a man who walked away from a crash with just a few stitches he’s still suffering from that accident years later and can’t seem to move forward. His best friend, Knox is the one constant who has stuck with him, understanding his severe anxiety, mental blocks, and social withdrawal. However, Knox is also the one person who encourages Ethan to seek help and treatment when Ethan just wants to stay in his withdrawn bubble.

It’s this long term friendship that helps Ethan through his darkest days, but also keeps him from asking for what he really wants, something more. Ethan is scared of the feelings that have been bubbling up inside of him, but he also can’t seem to contain them anymore. He has to let Knox know how he feels, relying on the strength of their friendship because if there is one thing he’s learned, life is short and he wants Knox in it no matter how long it lasts.

Knox deep down knows he feels the same way, when Ethan finally tells him how he feels, but the last thing he wants to do is lose his best friend by crossing a line. Knox loves Ethan as a friend, but can he risk everything by loving him as more and then it doesn’t work out in the end?

These two have such a great friendship, that crossing that line is such a beautiful thing. I love this addition to the Spark of Hope series and love how Nicole has mixed taking care of mental health with a healthy relationship.

Review – Sweetest Awareness by Michelle Heard

Sweetest Awareness; Cruelest Oblivion #2
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: November 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/New Adult/Dystopian/Suspense Romance

Author: Michelle Heard

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
With non-stop action, this thrilling conclusion was unputdownable once it begun. This duet is one that I can easily see transferring to the big screen.

Shedding the last of her innocence and wide eyed nativity, Jai transforms into a powerful leader and warrior by the end of this fast paced book. Someone far removed from the girl she was at the beginning of this duet and I couldn’t have loved watching this transformation more. Jai is unique on a lot of levels and her inner strength is just one trait that makes it so.

Throughout this last book, Jai has a strong pull to make a difference. She hates seeing the imbalance of power between where she just was living to where she is now, but even more than that, she hates seeing that even with her so called freedom, that women still don’t have much in they way of a voice. She wants to change that and she wants to flip the Ecocity upside down. Jai is tired of running, she’s tired of being scared, and she wants to take back power of everything in her life.

Jai has a backbone of steel in this book and her love not only for Chance, but for her friends and family, strengthen her like never before. From the beginning of this duet, really, this story never stops. It’s quick and unrelenting. A great dystopian duet!

Synopsis:
From USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Michelle Heard, writing as MA Heard, comes the next installment of the Cruelest Oblivion Duet.

With the impending war on our doorstep, I’m training harder than ever to become the woman I was always meant to be.
A warrior.

I’m faced with trials set out to break me, but I keep getting up and walking away stronger than before.

I quickly learn I’m not just fighting for freedom but for a world where women won’t be treated as breeders.
I’m fighting for the future of every woman.

I’m fighting to prove I’m not the coward I always thought I was.

I’m a leader.

Mostly, I’m the woman every man on this planet should fear.

Author’s Note: 18+ ONLY. This book contains mature language, graphic violence, and explicit content.
CRUELEST OBLIVION is book #1 and needs to be read before reading SWEETEST AWARENESS which concludes the duet.

Review – Brutal Obsession by S. Massery

Brutal Obsession by S. Massery

Brutal Obsession
(Standalone)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Enemies-to-Lovers/Sports Romance/Bully Romance

Author: S.Massery

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dark and brutal, and extremely obsessive! In case I need to say that again….Dark and brutal with a severe case of the obsessiveness!! Greyson is no joke, but if that is totally your jam…continue on.

Greyson has grown up an entitled son to a senator. He is used to getting everything he wants and getting out of every situation because of who he is, but in one night when he collides with Violet his entitled life changes. Then when life sends Violet right into his path a few months later Greyson decides to take his anger out on her. Ruthlessly, with pain, and maliciously. Remember that warning from up above, Greyson does not hold back. He is the quintessential antihero.

Violet’s life changed in an instant when Greyson first entered it, but she never expected to see him months later after she was trying to get her life back on track. Greyson taunts her, stalks her, and pushes every button until Violet pushes back. Violet has a strong friendship base by her side, which helps tremendously in keeping her sanity, but Violet is no shrinking flower, she’s strong in her own right and Greyson didn’t realize his prey wasn’t quite so weak.

These two circle each other as their demons come out to play, but if you are looking for sunshine and daisies, this book isn’t filled with them. Brutal Obsession is dark and filled with potential triggers, if you happen to be sensitive to those, so know your limits. As for myself, I rather enjoyed the ride watching how they circled each other like predators, wondering if they would survive. Plus, I loved the character growth from who they were from the beginning to who they evolved into by the end. I was riveted through the entire book.

Synopsis:
I had a foolproof plan.
Finish college playing the best sport on earth. Hockey.
Get drafted by an NHL team.
Make my senator father at least a little proud of me.

I was on track to do just that… until Violet Reece and I collided. Literally.

Turns out, my plan didn’t account for a night in jail-and the news articles that followed it.
Everything fell apart after that.

New school, new hockey team. And a resentment like I’ve never felt before directed at the girl who set me off course.

Lucky for me, she attends this new school of mine.
And there are a thousand ways to ruin her.

He shattered my leg, and now he wants to ruin the rest of me.

Greyson Devereux is a menace–but only to me.
To everyone else, he’s charismatic.
He’s the son of a senator and the star of the university’s hockey team.

When all I want is to be invisible, he drags me into the spotlight.
He wants my blood, my fear, my attention.

Resisting him only worsens his obsession.
Fighting solidifies it.

He’s brutal, and he draws out a sick darkness in me that enjoys it.
But I’ll be damned if I let him become my downfall.
