Review – Only Rivals by Charity Ferrell

59129781. sy475

Only Rivals; Only You #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 17, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Enemies-to-Lovers/Workplace Romance

Author: Charity Ferrell

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
THIS BOOK!!! OH, SWEET BABY, BLUE BEECH GOODNESS!!!!! Yes, I’m totally screaming! This is the town, the writing, the emotional back and forth between characters that I fell in love with and made me a Charity Ferrell fan for life!! Only Rivals is pure writing royalty.

Jax and Amelia are second generation Blue Beech and Twisted Fox children, but this is truly a new series and aside from some nostalgia, like walking into a new world. Only Rivals is so well done and pieced together perfectly that I rode every emotion on this very angsty rollercoaster. I was gasping, crying, laughing, and falling in love right along with the characters and then shocked right down to my core at a very pivotal moment. Charity never fails to bring me down to my knees, but this story truly rocked me to my core and then pieced me back together. To say it has all the feels seems trite, but it really does.

What I’ve always loved about any Ferrell book is her witty banter mixed in with her deeply emotional story. Her writing has always kept me turning pages late into the night and this book was no different. I didn’t want to stop and seriously thought about calling into work so I didn’t have to put it down.

Jax and Amelia have been enemies from a very young age. Bantering and bickering like only little rivals can do, until that magic age when they both realized perhaps that rivalry might actually mean more. However, when a new kid, Christopher comes into their circle and falls for Amelia…well, both of their lives change forever at that point.

Jax and Amelia’s path back to one another is not easy and it’s full of turmoil and grief, but it’s also full of a history between these two that is sweet and beautiful. It is one of the best books I’ve read this year.

Cover Reveal – Keeping His Princess by Tyleigh

Release Date: June 3

I had big plans for my future. None of them included becoming my bully’s princess….

If I wanted to get into my dream college, I needed to up my volunteer game, and tutoring was the perfect way to do it.

Why did my newest pupil have to be him?

Ethan Madden may be the “too sexy for his own good” captain of the soccer team but that didn’t change what he had done.

See, Ethan was the guy who’d been making my life miserable since we were kids. And it didn’t seem like much had changed. He was still the cold, dark-hearted bastard he’d always been.

But, we aren’t kids anymore.

So, if tutoring Ethan was the only way to get what I needed, I was more than capable of doing the job and getting out quickly.

At least I thought I could do that until Ethan told me he wanted something, too—and it wasn’t just tutoring.

He wanted me.

Knowing him, he was willing to play dirty, too. What he didn’t know was that when it came to protecting my heart, so was I…

💋ABOUT THE BOOK 🏈

Walking away would be the smartest decision, but no one’s ever accused me of being smart. Cold, determined, brutal, but never smart. 

Willa’s mine from the moment I rescue her. I protect her from a brawling crowd and she stares up at me like I’m her prince charming. No one’s ever looked at me like that. No one has ever dared to come that close. 

I didn’t know she was the little sister of one of my biggest rivals. Her brother and I have both drawn blood on the field, dislocated joints, broken bones, but I’ll never want to show her that side of me. 

I long to be the man she believes I am, but there’s only one way I know how to win—how to survive—and that’s ensuring my enemies lose. 

Once he finds out who his sister has been dating it’ll be all-out war, and I might lose the only woman who’s ever looked at me like I’m not built only for destruction. 

Changing my ways won’t be easy, but I’m willing to risk it all for her.

 AUTHOR BIO

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

Read Kay’s Review: These Dead Promises

About the Author:
Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

Review – Brutal Vows by J.T. Geissinger

59652129. sy475

Brutal Vows; Queens and Monsters #4 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: April 28, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/Arranged Marriage/Mafia Romance

Author: J.T. Geissinger

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An enemies-to-lovers story with the best verbal sparring EVER and a wicked, hot chemistry that boils to an incensinerary inferno! I continue to love everything about this witty and blazing hot series.

The Irish Mob and the Italian Mafia are looking to merge and what better way to do it than the age old method of marriage. Spider Quinn is second in command in the Irish Mob and willing to step up to the plate of an arranged marriage. He’s not looking for love, actually the less he’s attracted to the woman the better. He doesn’t need the distraction of love and the messiness of feelings to get in the way of his job or his life, but when he goes to meet his betrothed, he doesn’t count on the very hot, very mouthy, very perfect woman of his dreams – Reyna, the aunt of his future wife stirring something to life. As much as he tries to ignore her, he can’t seem to look away.

While these two never cross lines during any pending marriage moments, it’s hot and intense anytime they are in one another’s vicinity. Aside from Spider being highly unavailable, because he’s engaged to her niece, Reyna has promised never to get involved with another man ever again. She was in abusive marriage and barely survived so Spider is forbidden on lots of levels. However, Spider ignites her desires, stirs her blood, and makes her want. Things she thought long dead, right alongside her husband’s corpse. She shouldn’t want her nieces’ future husband and she will do everything to push aside those longing feelings.

These two circle one another denying that they may also be each other’s perfect match. If only there weren’t so many obstacles in their way – fanning myself. Brutal Vows is hot, witty, and full of the perfect angst. Another great addition to Queens and Monsters series, but can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:

An Irish mobster with a brutal grudge.
An Italian mafia princess with a dark secret.
Two enemy empires joined in sacred marriage vows.
Let the hating games begin.

Review – These Dead Promises by L.A. Cotton

These Dead Promises; A Darling Hill Duet #2
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: April 19, 2022

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

Author: L.A. Cotton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

It’s a beautiful story of strength and love and what love can do with the right person by your side.

I loved how the second half of this duet delved deeper into the emotional ties between Nix and Birdie. Just because Phoenix and Harleigh reconnected at the end of book one didn’t mean everything was fixed and all the emotional mess, future problems, or family issues in their lives were magically fixed.

Don’t get me wrong, I love HEA’s just as much as the next person, but sometimes when I read a book like this, it’s a reminder that love doesn’t instantly solve all your problems. Instead when love is right, with the right person, they will stand by your side through thick and thin while life may still be rocky.

While Phoenix and Harleigh knew they wanted one another, making it happen wasn’t exactly easy. They lived on opposite sides of town where stigmas ran deep, which was just the tip of the iceberg.

Harleigh was still working on her mental health and just because Nix was back in her life didn’t mean she was instantly fixed. Where they lived and who their family was was just another added another layer of complications for both of them.

This book was emotional and touching for so many reasons. I loved that Cotton didn’t shy away from the hard issues while still keeping their love front and center.

Teenagers feel things deeply and super intense and every time Nix and Birdie came together their intensity leapt off the page.

Nix especially couldn’t contain what he felt Birdie, it flowed out of him, but he also was restrained and sweet. His intensity was mesmerizing to read. I loved what these two overcame to be together and in the end only made them stronger.

I’m looking forward to continuing watching their growth in future books as I see their love only growing and getting stronger as the years go by.

About the Author:

Author of over thirty mature young adult and new adult novels, LA COTTON is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find LA immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

Review – Sabotage by Shantel Tessier

60481939. sy475

Sabotage
(A standalone)

Publication Date: March 18, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Enemies to Lovers/Forbidden/Dark Romance

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Where do I begin because I seriously LOVED SABOTAGE!!!! It’s dirty, gritty, filthy, a non-stop read that once I opened the cover I couldn’t put it down until I finished the very last page.

This hate-to-love romance book is walking such a thin margin that it’s almost non-existent. Shantel Tessier pulled out all the stops along the enemies-to-lovers trope and left nothing untouched. So, buckle up for this glorious ride into the forbidden and dark underbelly of degradation.

Raylee and Colton have been twisted up in a game of push and pull, hate and loathing for six long years. Ever since their parents married one another when they were in high school. However, their hate was a mask to shield their desire and longing and the more time that went along the more flames they added to the fire.

Sabotage is not a book for the faint of heart, nor is it a book for someone who doesn’t like diving into forbidden or dark stories. Raylee and Colton push every boundary and poke every vulnerability, but they are also perfect for each other in every way possible.

There is one very intense scene that literally took my breath away and Shantel had me so wrapped up in the moment, where I was so immersed in the scene, that my house could have been burning down around me and I wouldn’t have noticed.

Hats off to Tessier for creating characters that are always gritty and raw and for taking chances outside of the norm. It will keep me coming back and certainly keep me turning pages late into the night.

Synopsis:

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

COLTON
Raylee Lexington Adams is my stepsister and the one woman in the world who can make my blood boil.

She’s vindictive, a lot of crazy, and absolutely stunning.

I hate everything about her except for when she’s on her knees begging me to use her as my own personal toy.

We’ve been playing a game of cat and mouse for far too long. We have used each other for our own sick pleasure.

I’ve ruined every relationship my little princess has ever had. A sure way that she’ll come crawling back to me, begging me for what only I can give her when another man fails her.

But I’m tired of watching others get a piece of what is mine. So, I did what any rational man would do—I staked my claim, showed the world that she belonged to me, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to make her believe it too.

RAYLEE
Colton Remington Knox is a man I despise but can’t say no to.

He’s what any girl would call a walking red flag. But I’ve never claimed to be a smart woman when it comes to men. Why should he be any different?

I’ve always managed to hold my own against him. But this time, he’s gone too far. Posting a video of me on my knees for him, for what? To brag? Embarrass me? He’s acting like he doesn’t know me very well.

Colt wants to play a game? I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure I win. No matter what it costs me.

People already think I have no dignity, so why let them down now?

Things to know about Sabotage
It is MF with an MFMM scene (no MM interaction. They are focused on her)

FEARLESS by Tia Louise is now live!


He’s intense, he’s fearless, and he’ll stop at nothing to save her.

My job is to protect the innocent, but Blake van Hamilton has never been innocent.

With killer curves, silky brown hair, and silvery-blue eyes, she’s been an inconvenient object of my lust since we were teens.

Now I’ve been hired to guard her against a gang of criminals who want her money, and maybe even her life.

Still, I’m the last person she wants helping her.

Blake van Hamilton hates me, but it won’t stop me from doing my job.

Hutch Winston may be sexy as hell, but I won’t fall for his white knight, alpha-protector act.

Not since he used it to ruin my life at sixteen.

But when my best friend turns up dead and my uncle goes missing, Hutch is my only option.

Moving into his family estate is the real test.

It gets worse when I accidentally see him naked in the shower, moaning my name.

I have to keep my head and my heart in line—not to mention my body.

Every part of me wants him in every possible way.

I may be fearless, but how I feel about him scares me most of all.

(FEARLESS is a stand-alone, enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense novel. It contains an insanely hot alpha protector and the curvy, feisty socialite he’s hired to protect. A forced proximity angle sets it all ablaze. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Review – These Dirty Lies by L.A. Cotton

59125486. sy475

These Dirty Lies; Darling Hill #1 
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: March 15, 2022

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

Author: L.A. Cotton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Angsty and emotional, grab the tissues for the first part of this raw, heartfelt story.

Harleigh and Phoenix (Birdie and Nix) live in a town divided by wealth and poverty. Extreme living on both sides, but at one time these two enemies, now living in opposite worlds, were best friends until one fateful night changed everything.

I was torn about Nix through most of the story, which also made for super angsty reading. He shifted back and forth between being obsessive over Birdie and being an angry teen. It totally pulled at my heartstrings, while also making me hate him at times. I loved it!

Birdie was a mystery which took some time to unwrap. She begins the story with a dark cloud hanging over her head, but what is wrapped up in all that darkness we, the reader, can only speculate. Again, so much angst, it was super delicious!

Birdie is broken, but so is Nix. There is no telling if they will ever be whole even if they can forgive one another.

L.A. Cotton is known for her new adult, angsty books, but this may be her angsty-est one to date!

Synopsis:

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author L A Cotton comes a brand new angsty and gritty romance duet.

Harleigh Wren Maguire is broken.

At least, that’s what it feels like, a puzzle whose pieces no longer fit right.
She knows one thing though: never trust your heart.
It won’t lead you right, it’ll trick you. Betray you. And in the end, it’ll kill you.

Phoenix Wilder is angry.

At least, that’s what it feels like, eating him up inside.
He knows one thing though: never trust your heart.
It won’t fix things, it’ll break them. Taint them. And in the end, it’ll destroy them.

Once upon a time, Harleigh and Nix were everything to each other. They shared their secrets, their hopes and dreams.

But things are different now.

They’re different.

And maybe everything they remember was nothing but a lie.

* These Dirty Lies is the first book in Nix and Harleigh’s duet. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book is recommended for readers 17+

New Release – Deviant Reign by Tracy Lorraine

 Release Date: March 10
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.

Watching her walk away for a second time… nearly destroyed me.

But it was nothing less than I deserved from the things I put her through.

I should have let her go. I’d already caused Emmie enough pain to last a lifetime. But I’m a masochist.

Her pain is my pain.
And she’s mine.

Whether she likes it or not.

She’s my wife.

And the sooner she understands that she belongs by my side, the better.

Till death do us part…

I’m not letting her go.

Nothing she can do will convince me that we’re not made for one another.

We might be toxic. Combustible. A match made in hell.

But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

And together.

We will reign.

Dear reader,
Deviant Reign is the third and final book in Emmie and Theo’s deviant trilogy, and the sixth book in my dark mafia, high school romance series Knight’s Ridge Empire.

2022 Excerpt/Teaser, Year of Releases - 2022

Sneak Peek – Married by Sunday by Sarah Ready

When opposites attract love may be ignited.

Married by Sunday, an all-new, laugh-out-loud, romantic comedy standalone from Sarah Ready is coming March 22nd, and we have your first look!

Sneak Peek

“Sir?” the snack cart man says. “Coffee?”
The man next to me gives the snack cart vendor a distracted look and then a sharp nod. He holds up his finger to indicate he’d like one large coffee.
Well. He’s not very friendly, is he?
But he is getting coffee…
My stomach gives a tight hungry clench. I make my decision, because honestly, hunger is a great motivator. Plus, it’s fate.
“Devon, anything else?” I ask. I’ve decided that the man next to me is named Devon. He looks like a Devon.
Clearly, he doesn’t answer, because he’s on the phone, ignoring everyone but the crazy-in-love lady on the other end.
I turn back to the snack cart man and smile apologetically. “He’s on the phone with his sister, she’s causing him all sorts of trouble. You see, my husband and I are on our honeymoon and all we wanted was a little time to ourselves. But family…” I shrug. “You know how it is.”
“What does he want then?” asks the man impatiently. There are gobs of people waiting for snacks in the rows ahead of us.
I tilt my head and study the menu pasted to the side of the cart. I lick my lips. “He’ll have that coffee with cream and sugar. A ham and cheese croissant. A chocolate chip muffin. And, hmmm a bag of salt and vinegar chips.”
The snack vendor grunts and starts pulling out the food. I horde it, gathering it on my lap.
“Anything for you?”
I nod, my eyes going glassy from the food smells wafting up to me. “I’ll have a blueberry muffin. An apple. Another ham and cheese croissant. And a large coffee, no cream, but lots of sugar.”
My stomach twists again and I lick my lips.
I set the food in my lap, and then pull out the tray to put the coffee on. It’s steaming and smells so good that I almost start crying again.
The vendor uses an old blocky calculator to ring up the total.
“Twenty-six dollars,” he says.
I look at the vendor, then I look at Devon, then back at the vendor and shrug.
“Please. You can’t possibly get married Sunday. Fine. Bye. I’ll see you—” Devon sighs and clutches his head for a second then he turns to the vendor. It looks like his phone conversation is done. “How much?” he asks.
“Twenty-six dollars.”
Devon’s eyebrows scrunch down and he scowls at the vendor. “For a large? How much do you charge for a small?”
The large-nosed vendor rolls his eyes. “The coffees are four dollars. The croissants ten. The muffins, eight. The apple-”
“I don’t want all that, I just want coffee.”
“Your wife ordered for you,” the vendor says.
“What wife? I don’t have a wife.” Devon looks a little confused and a whole lot offended.
I give the vendor a sweet smile. “It’s a game we play. Being newlyweds. Devon thinks it’s funny.”
Devon gives me an appalled look, and I think he’s only just realized that I’m in the seat next to him. “Excuse me? We’re not married.”
I look back at the vendor. “See?” I open my eyes wide and flutter my lashes. “Come on Devon, don’t be that way.”
I didn’t think it was possible, but Devon becomes even more stiff-backed and starched looking.

Synopsis

Opposites clash in this wild, unpredictable rom com, where two strangers team up to stop a wedding at all costs.

Nathaniel Barry is monochromatic, meticulous, and uptight. Izzy Harris is wild, unpredictable, and free-spirited. Nathaniel has a trendy apartment, a successful career, and a girlfriend he’s about to propose to. Izzy has no home, no career, and nobody special to hold her down.

They’re polar-opposites in every way.

So when they sit next to each other on the train to Romeo, New York they clash from the very start. Naturally, Nathaniel decides he wants nothing to do with Izzy. And Izzy…well, she has a different opinion.

No matter how much Nathaniel protests, Izzy knows it was fate that brought them together. Nathaniel’s girlfriend just ran off to marry another man, and Izzy swears she’ll help Nathaniel win her back. They have three days to stop the ill-advised wedding. It should be easy. It should be simple. But when two polar opposites team-up to stop a wedding, there’s only one guarantee – that nothing will go as planned.

Title: The Kiss List

Series: St. Francis University #2

Author: Maya Hughes

Genre: Contemporary Romance

💄ABOUT THE BOOK 🏈


If I were on fire, she’d break out the marshmallows. 

It’s not that we don’t like each other, more like hate with the fury of a thousand suns. But it wasn’t always that way.

I still remember how her lips tasted. How they felt pressed against mine. How I wanted more. 

How I still crave her. Our disastrous night together ended with her storming out, me wondering if I’d ever be able to show my face on campus again and us as bitter enemies.

When a campus competition is announced to find the most in love couple, she’s the last person I thought I’d turn to for help. But the prize could change both our lives. An internship for her and a chance to finally connect with my father. It’s too hard to resist. Just like her heated glares and tempting curves. 

To win, we’ve got to prove to everyone we’re a couple. Head over heels, can’t keep our hands off each other in love. Fake the hell out of it for our chance at glory. 

Maybe we’re a little too good at selling it to the whole campus because the lines haven’t just been blurred, they’ve gone up in flames. 

Can I convince her I want us to be together for real and keep the prize? Or will I lose them both?

Maybe we’re a little too good at selling it to the whole campus because the lines haven’t just been blurred, they’ve gone up in flames. 

Can I convince her I want us to be together for real and keep the prize? Or will I lose them both?

ABOUT

If I were on fire, she’d break out the marshmallows.

It’s not that we don’t like each other, more like hate with the fury of a thousand suns. But it wasn’t always that way.

I still remember how her lips tasted. How they felt pressed against mine. How I wanted more.

How I still crave her. Our disastrous night together ended with her storming out, me wondering if I’d ever be able to show my face on campus again and us as bitter enemies.

When a campus competition is announced to find the most in love couple, she’s the last person I thought I’d turn to for help. But the prize could change both our lives. An internship for her and a chance to finally connect with my father. It’s too hard to resist. Just like her heated glares and tempting curves.

To win, we’ve got to prove to everyone we’re a couple. Head over heels, can’t keep our hands off each other in love. Fake the hell out of it for our chance at glory.

Maybe we’re a little too good at selling it to the whole campus because the lines haven’t just been blurred, they’ve gone up in flames.

Can I convince her I want us to be together for real and keep the prize? Or will I lose them both?

EXCERPT

You can help me out with the zipper. I think it’s jammed.”

With deep breaths, I walked to her and tugged on the zipper, not wanting to yank the damn thing apart. “It’s stuck.”

“Thanks for the update. Can you see what it’s stuck on?” She looked over her shoulder.

“Let me get a closer look.” I knelt behind her and steadied myself with my hands on her hips.

If I hadn’t already taken care of myself earlier this would be a big problem. Eye level with the jammed zipper, I picked at the fabric stuck between the teeth. “I’ll have to pull it down to fix it.”

“Whatever it takes.”

My throat was drought dry. I jerked the zipper down, pulling the fabric free, but the freed pull moved much easier and slid almost to the bottom of the zipper. The lace ruffle top of her underwear peeked out from the gaping fabric. Fuck, I was in trouble.

Swallowing, I kept the lace free from the teeth, but the move shifted my hand, so it skimmed along her spine all the way up. My heart sprinted like I was headed for the end zone.

Her body shuddered and her head snapped straight ahead.

“Sorry. My hands are cold.” Dread at her wondering why my hands were this cold and slightly damp, sped me through the final zip.

“Don’t worry about it.” Her voice was hoarse and stilted.

Don’t make this weird, Cole. I did the eye hook at the top of the dress and ran my hands over her shoulders. The curve of her neck was inviting. I wanted to bury my nose in her skin and inhale the scent that had enveloped me from our first pictures snuggled up on the couch.

Kennedy Finch was dangerous to my health. Bundled up in a neat, entirely too-tempting package, she was a walking wet dream and a captivating disaster.

She sat on the edge of her bed. The neckline of her dress showcased her breasts, which swelled from her position deepening the cleavage that my mouth wanted to dive face-first into.

I cleared my throat and looked anywhere but at her.

Review – Empire of Hate by Rina Kent

58511146. sy475

Empire of Hate; Empire #3 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: March 3, 3022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Enemies-to Lovers/Workplace Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This book is for everyone who needs a second chance.

Heartbreaking, heartfelt, healing…wow, that’s several H words, but nonetheless true. Empire of Hate emcompasses years of hurt and misunderstandings based in a world that is set up of false smiles and backstabbing promises.

This is a book where both Daniel and Nicole have been wrong and been wronged and neither are in a tower waiting to be rescued like a damsel in distress nor are they anyones Prince Charming swooping in to the rescue.

This book is raw and open and, what I feel, is probably one of the most touching stories that Rina has written to date. I know that that statement may seem odd with hate being in the title, but after riding the emotional rollercoaster with these two I think it will all make sense when you finish the book as well.

While I continue my gushing H word review, cause it appears I’m not done, Empire of Hate is also humbling. It carries a plot that reminds us we are human and to always remember there are two sides to every story.

Synopsis:

My boss. My enemy.

I escaped my life.
Leaving everything behind wasn’t easy, but I did it.
I turned the page and flew over the ocean.
This is my new beginning.
My new chapter.
My new book.

Oh, and the reason why I escaped in the first place.
I made his high school life hell.

Empire of Hate is a complete STANDALONE. No book should be read prior to this.
Note: This is NOT a dark romance.

Review – The Kiss List by Maya Hughes

56674050. sy475

The Kiss List; St. Francis U #2
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: March 3, 2022

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

Author: Maya Hughes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Enemies to Friends to Lovers. The perfect trifecta.

To sum up the juicy details and make you dive right in: we have a school/love competition to win with a fake relationship to kick it off. Plus these two aren’t just faking it, they loathe one another with a passion of a thousand suns. This is the kind of yummy-hand over the popcorn while pulling up a front row seat for all the steamy-steam kind of book.

Cole and Kennedy have tons of friction. It rolled off them whenever they were around one another where you could basically get out the marshmallows and roast them in the the fire that was burning so hot in their vicinity.

What began as complete animosity was a lot of misunderstanding. These two truly did begin with a ton of attraction and a night that went horribly wrong, but that is just a small part of their story.

There is a puppy love game on campus that has a huge prize for the winners, but said winners need to actually be a couple. That is a huge feat for both Cole and Kennedy in general. Neither are known for dating or being in a relationship especially to each other. To win it all will basically take a miracle, or at the very least big acting skills. They are both uber competitive and neither of them wants to lose, but as the competition goes on, they may actually lose more than just the competition. With their hearts on the line, losing doesn’t begin to look too bad, until everything falls apart.

We enter again into the STFU world and while I adore these new characters, I still can’t get past the horrible coach. I was really hoping Maya would have lightened up on the storyline around him, but alas Mikelson is still there and still just as horrible.

The entire idea with the Kiss List is fresh and adorable; Cole and Kennedy are fun in their challenges with each other, but I would have loved to see what the other couples in the challenge were doing. Just a thought. While I loved the book, that would be my only complaint to this story, well aside from the coach, who seriously is just the absolute worst, non-redeemable person ever.

So far, I’m loving this new university series and I’m looking forward to more.

Synopsis:

Cole and Kennedy’s story.
A Fulton U rivals enemies to lovers, fake relationship romance.
If I were on fire, she’d break out the marshmallows.

It’s not that we don’t like each other, more like hate with the fury of a thousand suns. But it wasn’t always that way.

I still remember how her lips tasted. How they felt pressed against mine. How I wanted more.

How I still crave her.

Our disastrous night together ended with her storming out, me wondering if I’d ever be able to show my face on campus again and us as bitter enemies.

When a campus competition is announced for the best couple, she’s the last person I thought I’d turn to for help. But the prize could change both our lives. An internship for her and a chance to finally connect with my father. It’s too hard to resist. Just like her heated glares and tempting curves.

To win, we’ve got to prove to everyone we’re a couple. Head over heels, can’t keep our hands off each other in love. Fake the hell out of it for our chance at glory.

Maybe we’re a little too good at selling it to the whole campus because the lines haven’t just been blurred, they’ve gone up in flames. Can I convince her I want us to be together for real and keep the prize? Or will I lose them both?

Blog Tour – The Truths We Burn by Monty Jay

Release Date: February 16

Beneath the deepest parts of Ponderosa Springs lied secrets that we never meant to be uncovered.

Blood has soaked the hands of those we trusted most. Decrepit intentions finally come to light.

And now truths are ready to be incinerated in the open for everyone to witness.

I was ready to watch this town that made me the villain, Rot in front of my eyes, but it seems ghosts don’t stay buried here either.

Everyone’s favorite sweetheart has returned to Hollow Heights dragging nothing but unanswered questions and grim memories behind her.

A distraction I can’t afford with the police sniffing around.

A mistake that torched my last piece of humanity.

The dirty little secret that has returned searching for closure surrounding her sister’s mysterious death.

But I know the innocent, lost girl is an act. Underneath it’s just another part of her show.

They all are eating from the palm of her hand, puppets on her string.

But not me.

I see her for what she truly is, I always have.

A fake. A manipulator. A liar.

I won’t let her ruin all we have worked for. I refuse to let her derail our plan of vengeance.

I’ve played your game once before, Sage, now it’s time to play mine.

And you’re not making it out without getting burned.
