Review – The Society #StalkerProblems by Ivy Smoak

58052243. sx318

The Society #StalkerProblems; The Society #1 
(#1 in a new series, interconnected to other worlds)

Publication Date: August 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romantic Contemporary Romance

Author: Ivy Smoak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A quirky, interconnected, new series by Ivy Smoak. Crazy, awkward, and just plain relatable, Ash/Raven Black, is my #spiritanimal.

The Society is insanely funny and outlandishly full of quirky “did I just read that” moments.  Ash’s friendships and path to love, especially after an awful divorce, pave the way through this wonderful book.

Ash embodies so much awkwardness that lives in everyone. Meaning, we’ve all had a moment where something flies out of your mouth that we wish we could take back, or that moment where we bend down to pick something up and then hit our head on the desk on our way back up. Pure mortification, right? Ash finds herself in these moments on a daily basis and lives in constant panic of finding herself in these situations which seems to make them even worse. Her anxiety over the possibility of landing in a dumpster, or a centipede crawling on her or any number of other anxious driven moments is quite humorous in her adorable awareness of these fears.

Ash spends the majority of the book going back and forth between stalking and calling the man she’s stalking her stalker. Didn’t I mention she’s quirky? Well, the man she’s stalking or being stalked by is Tanner/Ryder Storm. He is quite the odd duck himself if you read Matchmaker. These two certainly seem like a match made in heaven. Their oddities fitting into each others grooves in the best way possible. However, there is still so much about Tanner that we don’t discover as his secrets and mysterious ways continue to pile up.

Ash may be a hotmess, but she appreciates Tanner’s eccentricities. These two are so much fun together, but there is always a feeling of- is he telling her the truth? While it’s super important to find the person who matches your weirdness, is he her forever person? With a potential second suitor in the mix (he’s super hot too and packing some heat), is Ash too distracted by Tanner’s stalker ways or is she stalking him…anyway…who is Ash’s forever person, and what really happens at this mysterious club behind all those closed doors? I can’t wait for more Ash and her quirkiness to continue in the next book.

The Society is an interconnected story to Ivy’s other worlds, but I wouldn’t say you need to read those books first to completely understand them, but reading Matchmaker would certainly enhance your experience as you get a look at Tanner’s uniqueness and a first hand look at the incident Ash frets over throughout the entire book. However, The Society can be read as a complete standalone as it focuses on Ash and the people she associates with; her friends, co-workers, Tanner, and eventually the members of The Society and Ivy does a great job at going over the incident so you won’t miss a thing.

The only warning I would give; don’t drink anything while reading this book because you will most likely spit it out while laughing. There is hardly a moment or chapter where I wasn’t laughing. Sit back and enjoy!

The Wicked Aftermath by Melissa Foster – June 9th

THE WICKED AFTERMATH is an emotionally gripping story of love, loss, and hope, with a rich and entrancing happily ever after. All Wicked novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.

When the person you blame for your grief is the only one who can save you from the pain…

Tank Wicked lost his sister and has since vowed to save everyone else in his path. He lives by the creed of the Dark Knights motorcycle club, sworn to protect and respect his community. He selflessly saves lives as a volunteer firefighter and treats the men and women who work for him at his tattoo shop like family. But life isn’t a balance scale where good deeds negate bad things to come, and one foggy night life guts Tank once again. When a car careens over the side of a bridge and into a river, Tank springs into action, plunging into the water to rescue the passengers. Four people go into the river, but only three come out alive.

Leah Yates is just trying to make it through each day. When the man she blames for her grief becomes the only one who can pull her from the depths of despair, she discovers that even hope comes at a price. Maybe this time she won’t have to face it alone.

Her new position at the hospital is fraught with challenges as saving lives pushes her resourcefulness to the brink. Meanwhile, her connection with Ian deepens, and she realizes that forging a commitment with him will require a sacrifice she isn’t ready to make. As she teeters on the precipice of decision, tragedy strikes and sends her into a spiral of grief where she must find hope in adversity…or risk losing everything she has become.

Secret Enemy by Katie Reus – June 15th 

Return to the USA Today bestselling Red Stone Security series!

He thinks she’s out of his league.

Lyosha Vasiliev met Mila by chance, and now she’s all he thinks about. But the two couldn’t be more different, so Lyosha won’t go there. As a security expert, he skirts the law on the regular. Unlike Mila, the newest employee at Red Stone Security, who spends her free time volunteering at an animal shelter. Despite his determination to stay away from her, when it becomes clear his past has come back to haunt him—and poses a threat to her—Lyosha immediately steps in. And he’ll cross any line to keep her safe.

But he can’t seem to walk away.

Mila met Lyosha when he brought in a half-starved stray cat to the shelter she volunteers at. He tries to act tough—and okay, he is. He should be the last man she wants, but she loves his sexy tattoos, gruff demeanor, and that he has a marshmallow inside that only she gets to see. When someone threatens her, he’s convinced it’s linked to his past. He’s made it clear that he’ll protect her with his life—but he won’t give her his heart. Not when he blames himself for bringing danger to her doorstep. Except Mila isn’t the kind of woman who walks away from what she wants. And Lyosha finds himself unwilling to let her go without a fight.

Since You’ve Been Gone by Samantha Chase – June 29th

Emmaline Ryan has always been the smart, shy girl who plays it safe. But all that’s gotten her is a divorce and a mountain of debt to pay off courtesy of her ex-husband. Needless to say, she’s stopped believing in miracles and fairy tales a long time ago. Except now she’s in desperate need of one those miracles if she wants to save her family’s animal rescue. Emmaline knows just where to go for help, but that means putting her faith in the hands of the man who once broke her heart without even realizing it.

Garrett Coleman met the girl of his dreams when he was just eight years old – only, he never told her. But that was years ago. Now, Garrett has become a reluctant social media star – the shirtless #HotDoc and #SexyVet who saves scared and helpless animals. Sure, it’s been great for business, but he’d give anything for people to see the real him, preferably with a shirt on. When a visit home to Magnolia Sound has him running into the shy girl he left behind, he sees his chance at the future he never thought he deserved. Unfortunately, he’s not the only one back in town, and wooing Emmaline just became a lot more complicated.

A lot has changed since he’s been gone and Garrett is going to have to prove that he’s up to the challenge. Emmaline might still be the sweet and quiet girl he left behind, but he’s not sure she willing to wait.

Hot Summer School Nights by Ivy Smoak – June 29th 

All new and exclusive enemies to lovers and bully romance short stories and previews.

Assigned by Paris Wynters – July 22nd 

How can she become a new version of herself when she’s married to her past?

After two of his buddies found love through the military’s matchmaking program, Lucas Craiger decides to give it a shot. He’s not necessarily looking for love, just companionship and a kind, reliable stepmom for his young son. When he’s assigned to his high school sweetheart who shattered his heart, his plan for an uncomplicated relationship becomes acutely complicated.

Riley Thompson signed up for the matchmaking program because she needs a fresh start—and the health insurance. She desperately wants to build a life with a man where her autoimmune disease doesn’t define her and she can prove herself. But being matched with Lucas isn’t the new beginning she wanted. He’s the love of her life she let go when she was first diagnosed.

Lucas is determined to make the most of this second chance with Riley, but when his custody battle heats up, his new marriage isn’t the only relationship in jeopardy.

Rob Starr by JA Howard – August 

How far would you go to get the guy everyone wants?

Rob Starr (sigh) was out of Mia Morgan’s league. Of course, she had a crush on him. Everyone did. But in her case, it would just be way too weird to admit that. For starters, their moms were best friends and Mia had known Rob since she was five. But while Mia was now a demi-geek with relentlessly frizzy hair, Rob had become a demi-god and Ellsworth High’s basketball superstar. Besides, he’d been going out with the totally perfect Chloe Olsen since, like, forever.

But one October afternoon, a terrible accident changes everything. Suddenly, Mia and Rob are living in the same house and spending a lot of time alone together.  

Soon, Mia’s world was different in ways she never thought possible: new clothes, new friends, and an incredibly hot boyfriend. But was any of it real? Would any of it last? And did getting everything she thought she ever wanted mean giving up who she really was?

Broken Love by Cassia Leo – September 21st

Broken Love is an intensely emotional romance in the Love Like This series from New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo. Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone. 

By Chance by Sigal Ehrlich – September 30th 

A sizzling romance under wraps – what do you do when the sparks are too bright to hide?

There’s so much going on in Vicky’s life. A demanding job as the only female VP at a male-dominated company, good times with her tight-knit group of best ladies, and of course, her fabulous dating life. A committed relationship is somewhere near the bottom of Vicky’s list of life goals. A massive fan of new beginnings and the thrill of being swooned off her feet, Vicky has the perfect formula: date, for a limited period, and never exclusively.

Not many people go to sleep anonymous and wake up the next morning a worldwide sensation. With a voice that melts hearts, and a dangerously lethal smile, Ricky’s overnight fame means he can have anyone he wants, but the one he wants isn’t into a serious relationship. To make matters worse, pursuing her goes against his record contract stipulation to remain single.

Opposites don’t simply attract – they detonate.

When a forbidden sizzling affair sparks between the music industry’s newest heartthrob and an ambitious corporate world prodigy, it brings along an ageless question – would you give up your dreams for a chance with The One?

Love, Comment, Subscribe by Cathy Yardley – October 1st 

From award-winning author Cathy Yardley comes Love, Comment, Subscribe, a fun, feisty romance about high school frenemies turned unlikely collaborators.

Back in high school, Lily Wang wanted to be popular, but she considered herself lucky to be part of a tight group of oddballs and honors students called the Nerd Herd. Now, at twenty-eight, she feels like she’s finally on the cusp of succeeding as a beauty influencer—if she can hit five million subscribers, brands will take notice and she could get her own makeup line.

Fellow Nerd Herd alum Tobin Bui has had a lot of success as a YouTube gamer. But the road to online stardom has been rocky. First, he disappointed his parents by dropping out of college, and now, after years of pranks, skits, and playthroughs, he’s struggling to come up with new content to satisfy his ever-growing fan base. His agents say he needs cross-audience appeal, a new twist.

When Nerd Herd frenemy Lily approaches Tobin about teaming up to do a video to bolster her brand and reinvigorate his, he agrees. But when their first collab video goes viral, their relationship heats up too. With the whole internet watching, will these two former misfits finally realize they’re perfect together?

Hard Ball by S.A. Clayton – Out Now! 

Hardball- Noun: A forceful uncompromising method employed to gain an end.

Meeting Harper Stevens was never my plan. She crashed into my life and knocked me on my ass.

The only problem? She wants nothing to do with me.

Josh Anderson is everything I didn’t want in my life. He was persistent, cocky and ever worse? The star third baseman for the Hawks.

After my fathers death I swore I’d never be a part of that world again. And yet here I am thinking about a man who lives and breathes baseball. I can’t seem to shake him or the memory the way his hands felt on my skin.

Can I set aside my fears or will my past ruin everything?

Saving Tess by J. Lynn Bailey – Out Now! 

HIM

He wants the past in the past with each eight-second ride. He’s not into the fame or the money of it all, he’s addicted to the adrenaline that allows him to forget. But when Casey receives a letter from a local attorney that would put him, and the only woman that’s ever owned his heart, in the same place for an extended period, he’s not so sure about his future with the PBR, about his heart, especially with their fragile past.

Review:

Amazing! Hilarious! Emotional! Everything I needed!

It’s been sixteen years and Matthew Caldwell is still mourning, but he isn’t really willing to admit to anyone, especially the new people in his life. Those closest to him desperately want him to be happy and find love…commence matchmaking.

Empire High Matchmaker is LOL funny and just when I was done snort-laughing Ivy Smoak drove me off a cliff and ripped my heart out with a deeply emotional moment. I know it took all the dark and heavy from the previous books to get to this point, but WOW…this book is sooooo good with the high and low moments. Everything is perfectly timed.

There are too many spoilers to go on too much, but if the Empire High series is one you’ve been reading, then Matchmaker will not disappoint. I loved it and couldn’t put it down!

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

We pick up right after that last nail-biting, jaw-dropping cliffhanger in Elite….I swear Ivy is trying to give me a heart attack with this series!

I had bangxiety, murderxiety, which-boy-is-going-to-get-his-heart-brokenxiety…ok you get my drift. Brooklyn does gets herself into trouble more often than not. This is book three and it does appear to be her pattern, but the world around her is not the friendliest place.

Isabelle, her half sister, hates her, enough that she has tried to seriously hurt her multiple times. Matt and Brooklyn don’t always have the best communication which is why Brooklyn ends up kissing multiple boys, but those boys are drawn to the sweet innocence that seems to pour out of her considering she didn’t grow up there so it’s hard to blame her as the only one in the wrong. Then we have her father who is a bit of an enigma, is he exactly good or all bad? Will we find out….Hence the high anxiety. Ivy keeps it running through the entire book, which kept me turning pages from cover to cover.

Betrayal had it all, more Matt and Brooklyn, more Hunter brothers, more drama, just more  and yet I’m still anxious for more.

Synopsis:

My new family is dangerous. I’ve heard the whispers. I’ve seen it firsthand. And my new last name puts me in danger too.

The only thing keeping me in this city is Matthew Caldwell. If I didn’t love him, I’d be long gone. But he says I’m changing. That I’m becoming the thing I hate. And I’m worried he might be right. What if I’m actually the dangerous one?

Because all I want to do is prove I belong here just as much as anyone else. I’m going to become one of the elite. I’m going to live like an Untouchable. And no one will be able to break me. Ever. Again.

But while I’m focused on fitting into this new world, I forget that the stakes are so much bigger than who’s the most popular at Empire High. I’m playing with life and death.

I should have seen it coming. After all…I betrayed everyone to get to where I am. It makes sense that one of them would betray me too.

Empire High Elite; Empire High #2

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Gripping from page one! I couldn’t put it down and read it in one sitting!

Empire High Elite picks up right where Empire High Untouchables left off. Brooklyn is wrapped in grief and whisked away by her biological father to the very last place she would ever want to step foot in, the home of the girl who has been bullying her all semester. 

Ivy Smoak brings us into the heart of the monster’s home and we get a first hand look at how Isabella Pruitt was raised and how she lives. How will Brooklyn survive living under the roof of the devil?

Brooklyn is wrapped in grief through the entire book. Not only has she lost her mother, which is what brought her to living with uncle in the first place, but now she’s lost the only other family member she’s ever known and is forced to live with a man who says he’s her biological father. Thrown right in to live with the wolves, Brooklyn feels lost and alone clinging to threads of anyone who will give her hope.

While her emotions are still torn between Felix and Matt she also finds comfort in her new bodyguard, Miller, as he’s the only one by her side twenty-four seven. Brooklyn is more confused than ever about all the men in her life. She has a huge heart and continues to let people in, but unfortunately the world she now living in takes huge advantage of her kindness. Her sweetness draws the vipers to her and it might be her downfall.

The Elite ends on a whopper of a cliffhanger that I had no idea was coming!! I’m filled with so much anticipation on how Ivy Smoak is going to continue this series. 

Synopsis:

Empire High Book 2. Coming October 15, 2020

Welcome to the world of the elite.

My mom fell in love with a monster. I know he’s dangerous. And I know my mom never wanted him in my life. I don’t want him in mine either. But I’m being forced to live with him.

I’m stuck in his haunting apartment in a world where I don’t belong. A world full of beautiful people with ugly souls. A world filled with secrets.

And the one person that I thought I could rely on was Matt. But he says my new family is a disease. Does that make me toxic too? Is that why Matt wants to keep me his dirty little secret?

I should have known that all the secrets would come crashing down soon. I just never expected more to break than Matthew freaking Caldwell breaking my heart.

The nickname probably comes from the fact that they’re exorbitantly wealthy. Old wealth. The kind that isn’t flaunted around. But you can tell by the way they carry themselves. Or maybe the name just refers to the fact that they’re so beautiful it’s almost hard to look at them.

No matter the reason for their nickname, it’s an ironic one. Because I’ve only been going to this school for a week and I already want to touch.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A twisted, tangled love triangle that kept me turning pages well into the night. #TeamMatt or #TeamFelix you will find yourself, like I did, continually going back and forth, because staying in one camp is nearly impossible.

Brooklyn Sanders recently moved in with her uncle after she lost her mother and since she never knew her father, her uncle is the only family she has left. Beginning in a new school is never easy. Beginning in a new school after losing your mother, your home, your whole life, and then starting at one of the wealthiest schools in the state where you’re only able to attend because your uncle is the janitor – well – that only compounds the suck that Brooklyn feels on a daily basis.

Her only friend is her neighbor, Kennedy. That is until she makes an unlikely ally in gym class, Felix, a cute boy who’s friendship turns into something more. He’s popular in his own way, but unlike most everyone else at Empire High he doesn’t come from old money, so he too feels like an outcast, which connects him to Brooklyn even when she knows deep down they really aren’t alike at all. But how do you give up on a relationship when you only have two people in your corner to begin with? Losing his connection would mean losing half of her social life.

Then we have the world of the Untouchables; James and Rob Hunter and Mason and Matt Caldwell. They make up the Gods of Empire High. Brooklyn can’t help but stare at the god-like boys who grace the halls of her school even when she knows she shouldn’t. It attracts the attention of the meanest girl there, Isabella Pruitt and her evil minions. As much as Brooklyn tries to keep her distance and staring to herself, she just can’t seem to help herself and Matt Caldwell in particular is the one she is most obsessed with.

Matt lets it be known that he took notice of her. Over and over again he toys with Brooklyn and her feelings. Like a cat and mouse game her emotions get frayed, but she also can’t seem to stay away. His pull is so great even when Brooklyn knows it’s a losing game. How does a moth stay away from the flame? It doesn’t it always gets burned.

Lost in a sea of loneliness, with no one really to trust. In a new school, a new life, she’s weighed down by burden’s that no girl her age should have to carry. Ivy Smoak whipped up a dynamic tangled story that will keep you engrossed all the way until the end. And oh, what an ending!!

Synopsis:

The Untouchables. That’s what everyone calls the Hunter and Caldwell brothers. At least, it’s my best friend’s nickname for them. And since she’s the only one that talks to me at my new school, I’ll take her word for it.

New Release – Those Summer Nights by Ivy Smoak

BOOK BLITZ
Title: Those Summer Nights
Series: Sweet Cravings #2
Author: Ivy Smoak
Genre: New Adult Romantic Comedy
Release Date: August 13, 2019

BLURB

A new sexy summer standalone novel from international bestselling author Ivy Smoak!

The easiest way to get over someone is to never see them again, right? So when my ex stomps on my heart and throws it into the ocean…I decide to spend my summer on the opposite side of the country.

And this summer is all about me. Mending my broken heart (screw all men). Figuring out what I want to do with my life (a life that thankfully does not include my ex). And trying to better myself (does eating ice cream count?).

But all of my perfect planning comes to a halt when the sexiest lifeguard in existence asks me out. I have to say no. It doesn’t matter that he’s built like a Greek god, has eyes the color of the ocean, or is hotter than a summer night. I’m going to say no, I swear. He’s going straight into the friend zone. Although, I’m pretty sure he’d be more delicious than any flavor of ice cream. Can’t I put him in the friend zone after just one taste?

*This is a standalone novel with a guaranteed Happily Ever After*

To most people, suburbia is synonymous with good school districts, manicured lawns, and friendly neighbors. But you can never really tell what’s hiding behind those white picket fences and smiling faces.

I mean, we all have secrets. The kid down the street steals lawn gnomes. The woman on the corner is having an affair. And me? I’m a murderer. At least…that’s what everyone thinks.

Because that’s the other thing about the suburbs. Rumors spread like wildfire. Handsome detectives start poking around. Houses explode. You know…the usual.

Yes, I have secrets. But so does everyone else. Welcome to suburbia. I’m one of the smiling faces waving from my front porch. Don’t you trust me?

EXCERPT 

I locked the door and then just stared at it. God, I just lied to a detective. Why the hell did I just lie to a detective? It had felt right in the moment. But as soon as the words left my mouth I regretted them. I could have told him about the woman running through the woods. I could have pointed him in the direction that she had fled. I could have given him every detail he wanted and gotten him out of my hair.
But instead I lied. I shook my head. He hadn’t left me with much of a choice. I couldn’t have the cops poking around in the woods. I couldn’t have them running all around my property with police dogs and metal detectors and whatever else cops used in the search for a criminal. What if they found something? I couldn’t risk it.
I bit the inside of my cheek. Had the detective known I was lying? It looked like he did. Like he could easily see right through me. Shit shit shit.
“It wasn’t a big lie,” I said into the empty room. “It was a little white lie. A nothing lie. There are no consequences for a nothing lie.” Right?
I should have run back upstairs to finish what I had started just in case he came back, but instead I found myself pushing my ear against the door. There was no squeak of floorboards or crunch of leaves. I closed my eyes and tried to listen. The silence was incredibly loud as I pressed the side of my face harder against the wooden door.
Detective Reed’s gaze had been so intense. It felt like he had locked me in place when he was staring at me. Like I could barely even breathe. Does he feel as frozen as me right now?
I moved away from the door. Of course he didn’t. There was no way that he was as affected by our meeting as I was. It was his job to make me feel frozen. For his eyes to bore into my soul, see my darkest sins, and to travel down my body…I shook my head. No. That was most certainly not his job. But he had done that, right? I hadn’t imagined it?
I swallowed down the lump in my throat. All my nerves were on hyperdrive. The only man I had interacted with recently was mailman Joe. And he was like seventy. This was a normal response to a man my own age. Especially one who looked like Detective Reed. I glanced down at the business card in my hand. Detective Tucker Reed.
I tiptoed to the window in the living room and peered through a gap in the curtains. I expected to see him retreating through the woods, but he was just standing there. Staring at the door. Frozen. I could feel my pulse beating in my head. I hadn’t imagined it. He had been looking at me. Really looking. And it didn’t seem like it was purely for detective reasons.
I let myself stare unabashedly at him from behind the safety of the curtain. He didn’t look how I expected a detective to look. Beer bellies and mustaches were the dominant features of the detectives in my mind. But he was most certainly not like the detectives I pictured in my head. He was wearing a formfitting wool jacket that was undoubtedly not hiding a huge stomach. If anything it was probably covering perfect six pack abs. I glanced down at his left hand. There was no ring on his finger. Hot and single. I was good at smelling trouble a mile away. And Detective Reed was most certainly trouble. After all, he was clearly the reason I had lied. I couldn’t think straight when a man with a chiseled jaw, five-o’clock shadow, piercing brown eyes, and a deep sexy voice was staring right at me.
Yes, he was the reason I had lied. He had made me act poorly. It was all his fault. Jerk.
He turned his head and I threw myself down onto the floor. Ow. I cradled my elbow that had just whacked the hardwood floors.
When I peered back out the window, the detective was gone. And a part of me wondered if I had imagined him.
