Review – The Spy by Sophie Lark

56569856. sy475

The Spy; Kingmakers #4ย 
(#4 within a series)

Publication Date: July 28, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Suspense-Intrigue/Mafia Romance

Author: Sophie Lark

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Constant mind explosions. All. Over. The. Place. ๐Ÿคฏ Wow, wow, and more wow!!!

The past and present all wove together to tell a tale that was complete perfection. Although, I feel like I need to go back and re-read each book in the Kingmaker series because I feel like I missed clues or easter eggs that all led up to this brilliant conclusion. Again, total mind blown moments throughout the entire book.

I was captivated and I’ve been dying to know who the spy was leading up to this book, but like Sophie…I won’t let the cat out of the bag either.

We return to Kingmakers with new freshman, the classes (I still love the entire concept behind mafia courses) and the potential of Leo Gallo being the four time captain-champion of the school’s games. Everything is familiar and yet as mysteries slowly unraveled (which brought me immense glee) and all of the truth bombs began to explode the story puzzle began to take shape. The ending was coming, but it was also magnificent.

Probably one of the best things I have loved about this series is how Sophie wove all secondary characters throughout each book to the point that each person was perfectly placed and became just as important to the storyline as the main characters.ย  Friendship and loyalty, something you wouldn’t expect perhaps from mafia students, but it runs deep through these books and the love they have for each other is a bond that became unbreakable.

While I’m sad to see this series come to an end, it truly had the perfect ending and everything was tied up.

Synopsis:

Iโ€™ve waited three long years for thisโ€ฆ
Hiding. Lying. Spying.
Waiting like a spider for her to wander into my webโ€ฆ
Now sheโ€™s here, and I have to get even closer to her. Iโ€™ll help her. Befriend her. Seduce her, even.
The only thing I canโ€™t do is fall in love with her.
Her father took everything from me: my money, my family, my life.
He has to pay for what heโ€™s done. And sheโ€™s the only thing that can hurt himโ€ฆ
Mafia families from around the world send their children to Kingmakers Academy to learn the skills of criminal enterprise.

Under the rules of Sanctuary, students are forbidden to fight or kill. But rivalries are high, tensions inflamed, and forbidden love arises in the most unlikely placesโ€ฆ

Blog Tour – The Varsity Dad Dilemma by Lex Martin

RELEASE BOOST
Title: The Varsity Dad Dilemma
Author: Lex Martin
Genre:ย Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 20, 2021
BLURB

โ˜…ย A sexy, small town sports romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin!ย โ˜…

Whatโ€™s worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brush-off because he doesnโ€™t want to get serious? Youโ€™d probably think living across the street from him where you get a firsthand view of his hookups, right?ย 

Thatโ€™s what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocksโ€”either Rider or one of his roommatesโ€”is the father. The problem? Baby mama doesnโ€™t mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.

I wouldnโ€™t care about their paternity problemsโ€”not the slightest bitโ€”except my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and thereโ€™s no way Iโ€™m leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.

They need my help, even if they donโ€™t know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out whoโ€™s the daddy, Iโ€™m out.

Iโ€™ll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He wonโ€™t get a second chance.

EXCERPT

As I walk Sienna to her car, she squeals. โ€œHoly crap, is that Rider Kingston?โ€
Without my permission, my gaze slides across the street to the oversized man-child, who has the gall to be moving furniture shirtless while flexing his stupid abs. Judging by the other sweaty minions pouring out of the two story, Riderโ€™s getting new roommates too.
My eye twitches again, and my focus snaps back to Sienna. โ€œI thought you said you werenโ€™t a fan of football.โ€
โ€œOh, Iโ€™m not. I canโ€™t sit through an entire game. But I am a fan of football players.โ€ Her gaze turns ravenous as she scans my neighborโ€™s front lawn. Or, likely, the glistening eight-pack Riderโ€™s put on display. โ€œAll that testosterone. Those bulging muscles. That deep, masculine grunting. Oh yeah. Get me one of those!โ€
She cackles, and Rider hears it.
Of course he does.
Shockingly, he deigns to speak to me.
โ€œHey, Gabby,โ€ he shouts. โ€œHow was your summer?โ€
Iโ€™m not sure when he decided to stop ignoring me, but thatโ€™s better than pretending weโ€™re friends, which weโ€™ll never be.
I close my eyes because I donโ€™t need any reminders of his masculine beauty. And I definitely donโ€™t need to see that sexy smirk, the one more powerful than his cannon that took the team to the playoffs last year.
No, Iโ€™m not interested in the star quarterback. Not anymore.
Turning on my heel, I wave my middle finger and march back to my house.
Laughter is all I hear as I slam the front door shut behind me.

After six years of living in denial, Luca is finally faced with the truth. A brutal discovery he refused to accept when I needed him most.

Now the vengeance he so desperately craves isnโ€™t directed at me, but the monster responsible for destroying all our lives.

That might put us on the same side this time, but that doesnโ€™t mean I can forgive him for not believing me. Or for hating me when I loved him.

Just when I think the darkness couldnโ€™t drag us down any further, it threatens to swallow me whole.

Only this time Luca is right there beside me, reminding me how things used to beโ€ฆ fighting for me. Begging for my forgiveness.

Something I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™ll ever be able to give him.

Until he proves that the boy I fell for still exists, underneath the one who broke my heart.

And I begin to wonder if there ever was a question about our future.

Dear Reader,

Review – Burn It Down by Julia Wolf

58116296. sy475

Burn It Down; The Savage Crew #3
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Second Chance Romance

Author: Julia Wolf

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I I have been waiting and wanting Gabe’s story since book one, so Julia had a lot of expectations to fill up my heart and soul…Expextations met and I LOVED EVERY MOMENT!!

Gabe is known as the comic relief, the class clown, and definitely a player. Is it wrong to say I was super excited to finally find out why Gabe is the way he is. (rubbing my hands with super villain glee)

I was happy to find that Gabe is the same funny, sarcastic, over-the-top boy I’ve loved since book one. His charismatic charm wormed his way right into my heart from the very beginning and his loyalty to not only his friends, but those who became a part of that inner circle is what truly solidified my love for the boy. He’s pretty darn perfect, if only he could have been truthful and not let his pride get in the way, then playboy Gabe wouldn’t have hatched, but to everything there is a reason and it doesn’t take long into the book to get a small taste of what that reason entails.

Penelope is a casualty of Gabe’s Freshman year. Penelope has a ton of faith and trust in people, until she gets hurt, then it’s all bets off and she doesn’t allow for second chances, but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let me go back to Freshman year when it all began and Penelope was a wide eyed girl completely in love with a boy from the wrong side of town. She didn’t care where he lived or how much money his parents made, Penelope was just totally enamored of Gabe himself. We don’t find out why Gabe throws it all away until much later in the book, but breaking Penelope’s heart freshman year is the catalyst for the entire story going forward.

Julia is so good at weaving a story from this small thread and eventually displaying the entire blanket by story’s end. Each chapter gives a little more, sewing and knitting pieces, until each puzzle is put into place and that A-HA! moment finally connects.

As much as I wanted Penelope to forgive Gabe right out of the gate, there was a lot of ground work to cover and it’s great to see how obsessive Gabriel is in trying to win her back. There was always this feeling that he had ADD or compulsive issues in the other books, but to really see the man in action is completely endearing and honestly I’d love a little obsession from a man like Gabe any day.

Everyone of the main characters, from family to friends, is perfectly placed and written. Burn It Down is another great addition to this overall series and Gabe is still one of my favorite characters overall. I’ve loved to see this story arc grow with each book and I can hardly wait to see what’s coming up next.

Synopsis:

Iโ€™m the smart girl with my nose constantly in a book. The one with the level head who never breaks the rulesโ€ฆuntil I do.

And wouldnโ€™t you know, the one person who knows about my case of temporary rebellion is the last one Iโ€™d ever want to find out.

Gabe Fuller might be Savage River Highโ€™s class clown, but as far as Iโ€™m concerned, heโ€™s a villain in disguise. Once upon a time, I gave him my heart, but our ending was no fairytale.

As the keeper of my darkest secret, Gabe thinks he owns me. Iโ€™ll play along because I have no other choice, but Iโ€™ll never bow, and I definitely wonโ€™t fallโ€ฆno matter how good his hands feel on my curves.

New Release – Charming and the Cherry Blossom by LJ Evans

From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes aย contemporary romanceย filled with all the magic, hope, and love of a fairy tale plus the small-town, old-soul vibe her fans adore!

Today was a fairy tale…

Today was a fairy tale…
I inherited a fortune from a dad I never knew,
And a thoroughly charming guy asked me out.

Unfortunately, my fairy tale could disappear in ninety days…
Because there’s an impossible task to complete,
And a greedy cousin plotting against me.
ย 
Plus, I’m not your typical fairy tale princess.
I have a secret that might send my charming running,
And threatens my future if the press finds out.
ย 
If today was a fairy tale…
Why does my happily ever after look so far out of reach?

Inspired by Taylor Swift’s “Today Was a Fairytale,” this slow-burn romance is pure escapism.

A full-length, standaloneย adultย romance.

Meet LJ Evans

Award winning author, LJ Evans, lives in the California Central Valley with her husband, daughter, and the terrors called cats. She’s been writing, almost as a compulsion, since she was a little girl and will often pull the car over to write when a song lyric strikes her. A former first-grade teacher, she now spends her free time reading and writing, as well as binge-watching original shows like The Crown, A Discovery of Witches, Veronica Mars, and Stranger Things.

If you ask her the one thing she won’t do, it’s pretty much anything that involves dirt–sports, gardening, or otherwise. But she loves to write about all of those things, and her first published heroine was pretty much involved with dirt on a daily basis, which is exactly why LJ loves fiction novels–the characters can be everything you’re not and still make their way into your heart.

Her debut novel, MY LIFE AS A COUNTRY ALBUM, was the Independent Author Network’s 2017 YA Book of the Year.

Blog Tour – Broken Hearts by Rebecca Jenshak

Broken Hearts by Rebecca Jenshak is now live!

She’s a figure skater. He’s a hockey player. Things are about to heat up on the ice.

Rhett Rauthruss is single for the first time in six years. He’s fresh off a long-term, long-distance relationship and ready to make the most of what’s left of college.

Party with his boys, get to the Frozen Four with his team, and maybe play the field for a change.

Sienna Hale knows a thing or two about heartbreak. She’s a college athlete about to skate for the last time, and nothing is going to throw her off course. Not her worries about finding a job after college, not the whispers of last year’s accident on the ice, and not the cute hockey player who keeps asking her out.

They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there’s no denying they have something in common–even if it’s just for a night.

“W-what do you want, Luc?”

I consider her question for a few seconds.

“Honestly. I have no fucking clue.”

She gasps when she runs out of space behind her and bumps up against the wall.

“I-I’m sorry you found out like that. That wasn’tโ€”” Her words are cut off when my hand flies out and pins her against the wall by her throat.

She swallows nervously, her body trembling as tears pool in her eyes.

“Stop,” I boom. “Just stop.”

My chest heaves as I stare at her almost cowering away from me.

I hold her wide eyes for a beat before I drop mine to her pink lips. Theyโ€™re so full and I already know just how sweet they taste. Then I drop lower to her dress. It’s the first time I really get to look at her and fuck.

“You lookโ€ฆ” Beautiful. I swallow down the word as the confusion I’ve battled with all day only gets stronger.

Hurt her.

Take her.

Punish her.

Make her yours.

“Tell me he didn’t touch you. Tell me he didn’t take what’s mine.”

Blurb:

After six years of living in denial, Luca is finally faced with the truth. A brutal discovery he refused to accept when I needed him most.

Now the vengeance he so desperately craves isnโ€™t directed at me, but the monster responsible for destroying all our lives.

That might put us on the same side this time, but that doesnโ€™t mean I can forgive him for not believing me. Or for hating me when I loved him.

Just when I think the darkness couldnโ€™t drag us down any further, it threatens to swallow me whole.

Only this time Luca is right there beside me, reminding me how things used to beโ€ฆ fighting for me. Begging for my forgiveness.

Something I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™ll ever be able to give him.

Until he proves that the boy I fell for still exists, underneath the one who broke my heart.

And I begin to wonder if there ever was a question about our future.

Dear Reader,

The Destruction You Desire is the fifth book in my Maddison Kings University series and the second book in a duet for Peyton and Luca. It’s a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.

Go back to where it all began with Kane and Letty!

Read Kay’s Review: Waste My Time

Excerpt

Walking through campus, I keep my head down. The Advil has done as much for my headache as the saltine crackers the school nurse gives you for a broken arm. If there’s one thing I don’t want right now, it’s to make small talk with some shithead who thinks we’re friends simply because Z and I throw the best parties.
My only mission is to get to my class, where I can fall back asleep listening to the monotone voice of my professor as he drones on about the fundamentals of programming and problem solving. And yet, when I get most of the way there, I quite literally crash right into someone else.
Books fly out of the girlโ€™s hand and land among mine on the ground.
โ€œI’m so sorry,โ€ I say, but as I look up, I notice Kennedy staring back at me.
Shit.
I’ve been trying to stay out of her way. I mean, Tessa found happiness after me, and then I practically destroyed her by trying to get her back. I’d rather die than do the same thing to Kennedy, so if she’s happy with Alec, I’ll force myself to be happy for her.
She stares back at me, clearly in shock as I quickly pick up her books and hand them to her. As she takes them from me, our hands touch, and my body reacts to the feel of her skin on my own.
The same way it always has.
The same way it always will.
Seeing her now, my body hurtsโ€”literally yearns to pull her back into my arms and just hold her there, never letting her go. But I can’t let myself do that. Not anymore.
I go to walk away, to leave her alone like I swore to myself I would, but she stops me with a call of my name.
โ€œI actually need to talk to you about something,โ€ she says with a sigh.
The air around me feels too thick, standing here with her, but I swallow it down. โ€œEverything okay?โ€
โ€œUh, yeah. I guess,โ€ she mutters, looking anywhere except back at me. โ€œI, uh…fuck.โ€
A part of me wonders if she’s just trying to keep me around. Keep my attention on her. Like ignoring her the past week was drawing her back to me. But if I’ve learned anything the last week, it’s that she’s better off without me.
Where I can’t ruin her life.
Letting out a huff, I know I’m going to hate myself for this. โ€œCan you just say what it is you want to say? I have places to be.โ€
She narrows her eyes at me. โ€œIt’s not that simple.โ€
โ€œSure it is. Your mouth forms words, and you say them,โ€ I spit. โ€œJust tell me.โ€
โ€œEaston,โ€ she breathes, and I’m even more sure she just wants to keep me here as long as possible.
I roll my eyes. โ€œFuck it, then. I’ve got to go.โ€
โ€œI’m pregnant,โ€ she announces, freezing up as she realizes the way she just blurted out that crucial information. โ€œAccording to the doctor, about twelve weeks.โ€
Her words hit me right in the chest.
Pregnant.
She’s pregnant.
And twelve weeks means it’s mine. There’s no way it can’t be, unless she cheated. No. Kennedy is a lot of things, but a cheater is not one of them. That only leaves one person to be the father.
Me.
โ€œY-you’re…โ€
Everything starts to spin as the reality sets in that I’m going to be a father. The nausea from my hangover builds in my throat and threatens to bubble over. I try to hold it back. Try to keep it in. But there’s nothing I can do.
It all happens in a millisecond. I attempt to turn away but she puts her hand on my arm, keeping me in place as she looks at me in bewilderment.
I’m stuck.
There’s nowhere to go.
Nothing I can do.
And that’s when it goes wrong.
I bend over, emptying the contents of my stomach all over the ground and Kennedy’s favorite pair of boots. She gasps, holding her books close to her chest and not looking down for a moment. She doesn’t need to. Itโ€™s no mystery as to what just happened.
โ€œFuck,โ€ I groan. โ€œKennedy, I am so sorry.โ€
โ€œIt’s fine,โ€ she snips, showing it’s most definitely not fine.
As she takes a step away, I stop her. โ€œAt least let me help you clean up.โ€
โ€œNo,โ€ she barks. โ€œTrust me. You’ve done enough.โ€
With that, she practically runs back toward her dorm, not sparing so much as a glance back at me.
I fucked up again.

New Release – Broken Hearts by Rebecca Jenshak

Broken Hearts by Rebecca Jenshak is now live!

She’s a figure skater. He’s a hockey player. Things are about to heat up on the ice.

Rhett Rauthruss is single for the first time in six years. He’s fresh off a long-term, long-distance relationship and ready to make the most of what’s left of college.

Party with his boys, get to the Frozen Four with his team, and maybe play the field for a change.

Sienna Hale knows a thing or two about heartbreak. She’s a college athlete about to skate for the last time, and nothing is going to throw her off course. Not her worries about finding a job after college, not the whispers of last year’s accident on the ice, and not the cute hockey player who keeps asking her out.

They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there’s no denying they have something in common–even if it’s just for a night.

Review – The Varsity Dad Dilemma by Lex Martin

55965670. sy475

The Varsity Dad Dilemmaย 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 20, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Single Dad/New Adult/Sports/Second-Chance/Small Town Romance

Author: Lex Martin

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Ovary-explosion overload!! Rider Kingston and all the guys who live at the house called “Stallion Station” made me swoon.

I loved the chemistry between Rider and Gabby right from the beginning. These two have a love-hate history dating back to freshman year and this book begins at the beginning of senior year so the tension is strong and it’s completely delicious.

We get a pretty good look at both of their backgrounds and what makes them tick before the adorable baby, Poppy, is introduced and this little cutie only enhances what is already a fun and engaging story.

Gabby is a force of nature and I love her organizational skills. While she constantly feels alone, she knows she does it to herself given how she grew up, however she doesn’t sit around and feel sorry for herself. Her spirit and fight is something to admire and I think it’s also what drives Rider to her side over and over again.

Rider is also a powerhouse of drive, he isn’t the captain of the football team by being a slouch. His entire life has been focused on doing better and making his goals a reality. He doesn’t have time for distractions, but when a one night mistake lands on his doorstep his future suddenly looks a little different. He also doesn’t sit around feeling sorry for himself, he’s a take charge guy, but a little help from his hot neighbor certainly doesn’t hurt.

Every guy who lives across the street from Gabby is pretty darn great, mostly in the way that each one would be terrific in their own story (crossing my fingers that it becomes a reality). It’s a house full of football guys, but they all melt for the sweet baby who ends up on their doorstep. Gabby takes charge and whips them into shape which is hilarious and super sweet all wrapped up in an engaging story with lots of emotional and steamy moments.

This new world, although with some interconnected moments to Lex’s past works, was a wonderful beginning with fantastic characters. I loved the trope, the story, the angst, absolutely everything was great.

Synopsis:

โ˜… A new sexy, small town sports romance from USA Today bestselling author Lex Martin! โ˜…

Whatโ€™s worse than having Rider Kingston, the star quarterback, give you the big brushoff because he doesnโ€™t want to get serious? Youโ€™d probably think living across the street from him where you get a first-hand view of his hookups, right?

Thatโ€™s what I thought. Until someone drops off a baby with a note pinned to her blanket that says one of those jocksโ€”either Rider or one of his roommatesโ€”is the father. The problem? Baby mama doesnโ€™t mention which of these numbskulls is the sperm donor.

I wouldnโ€™t care about their paternity problemsโ€”not the slightest bitโ€”except my brother lives there too. Which means that adorable squawking bundle might be my niece, and thereโ€™s no way Iโ€™m leaving her unattended with those bumbling football players.

They need my help, even if they donโ€™t know it yet. Once we solve this dilemma and figure out whoโ€™s the daddy, Iโ€™m out.

Iโ€™ll just ignore Rider and those soul-searing looks he gives me every time I reach for the baby. He broke my heart three years ago. He wonโ€™t get a second chance.

Review – The Destruction You Desire by Tracy Lorraine

58424335. sy475

The Destruction You Desire; Maddison Kings University #5ย 
(#2 in a duet, #5 within a series)

Publication Date: July 22, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Bully/Dark Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Oh, these Dunn men…sweet and dark at the same time, like a decadent dessert.

Luca Dunn has been angry for a long time, but his anger has been directed at the wrong person, Peyton. In this second half of an explosive duet, Luca finally pulls his head out of the anger fog he’s been living in and now directs it at the appropriate person and Peyton actually get the best of both Luca’s; the sweet Luca she grew up with and fell in love with, but also that dark Luca that still remains inside him and unleashes whenever his beast comes out.

Peyton has a lot to deal with in this second book. She already had a lot of emotional baggage coming from the first book, but this second half really shows how strong this girl is. She is bombarded left and right and a lesser person would break, but Peyton keeps going. Given Luca’s history and potential future, Peyton proves over and over that she is actually a perfect match for him, but he has a huge valley to cross before she would begin to forgive him.

Lastly, Leon…Luca’s twin brother…just like in Letty and Kane’s story, we get just enough to clammer for more and boy am I wanting more. There is a big mystery about this man and I can hardly wait to dig more into his background, plus I need to have a moment to scream (AAAHHHH) because Leon is into redheads…I officially nominate myself to be a part of his redhead fantasies.

Don’t miss this dark romance where the fine line of hate and love, the past and present all come together in an explosive story.

Synopsis:

After six years of living in denial, Luca is finally faced with the truth. A brutal discovery he refused to accept when I needed him most.

Now the vengeance he so desperately craves isnโ€™t directed at me, but the monster responsible for destroying all our lives.

That might put us on the same side this time, but that doesnโ€™t mean I can forgive him for not believing me. Or for hating me when I loved him.

Just when I think the darkness couldnโ€™t drag us down any further, it threatens to swallow me whole.

Only this time Luca is right there beside me, reminding me how things used to beโ€ฆ fighting for me. Begging for my forgiveness.

Something I donโ€™t know if Iโ€™ll ever be able to give him.

Until he proves that the boy I fell for still exists, underneath the one who broke my heart.

And I begin to wonder if there ever was a question about our future.

This was itโ€ฆI could see it in my editorโ€™s eyes.

ย 

This was the last straw. One more misstep and I was going to lose my coveted internship.

ย 

I decided right there in my room, lime-flavored tortilla chips in hand, that I would do whatever it

took to write the story of the century.

ย 

And I had my target in sightโ€”the undefeated Devilโ€™s baseball team. They were RFU royalty,

and completely untouchable.

ย 

Their parties were impossible to get into unless you were handpicked, and I was not.

Even still, I had a solid plan.

I would not get caught, definitely not seduced, and absolutely wouldnโ€™t die. That is until I was

stopped and rendered totally speechless by a pair of mossy eyes.

He lured me in, close enough to feel the press of his mouth against my skin and the heat of his

hands on my body. Undoubtedly, I was a sheep headed straight for the slaughter, which only

proved true when he called my bluff.

With him holding all the cards for my future success, and in order to salvage what remained of

my dream, I did the only thing I could.

I made a deal with a devil.

BLURB

Dane Goldenโ€”Best friend. Temptation in football cleats. Roommate?

Iโ€™m screwed.

His followers donโ€™t call him Pretty Boy D for nothing. The guy is, literally, Godโ€™s gift to women. I should know. Iโ€™ve watched chicks throw themselves at him since puberty.

Sharing his loft should be simple. Easy. But shortly after I settle in, we realize being “just friends” was so much easier when we werenโ€™t sleeping under the same roof.

Seven years of thinking we had this down to a science goes out the window the night Dane sees my โ€œNever Have I Everโ€ list. Now, heโ€™s on a mission to help me cross off the top four items. Some of which arenโ€™t quite as innocent as heโ€™d expect.

What heโ€™s proposing will break the rules we agreed to when I first came to stay here. He wants me to give in, to let my guard down and face my feelings for once. At least, thatโ€™s what that wicked look in his eyes and the mounting heat between us suggests.

This isnโ€™t how I imagined being roommates would go. But a girl can only stare temptation in its green eyes for so long and not weaken.

My best friend wants to have his way with me and, right or wrongโ€ฆ I think I might let him.

***

Pretty Boy D is a full-length standalone novel. This book can absolutely be read on its own, but when youโ€™re done, itโ€™s recommended that you check out more from the Golden triplets and Joss in the complete enemies-to-lovers trilogy, KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP.

Do you enjoy the frustratingly hot push and pull of a good friends-to-lovers or roommates-to-lovers romance? Then youโ€™ll love getting to know Dane and Joss. Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this oneโ€™s only for the 18+ crowd. Expect an HEA and no trigger warnings needed.

Review – Charming and the Cherry Blossom by LJ Evans

57819641. sy475

Charming and the Cherry Blossomย 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Fantastical/New Adult/Contemporary Romance

Author: LJ Evans

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A fantastical love story that will make a believer of love out of anyone.

Elle is coined the “Willow Witch” by students at her school. She believes in signs from nature and that listening to the earth that fortune, or destiny will lead your way. If that makes her a witch then she is okay with that assessment. She doesn’t need anyone’s approval to be happy, but when she literally bumps into Hudson, a yoga instructor, on the day that cherry blossoms were falling, a sign of change, well…Hudson was a change in her world, a big change.
Hudson never thought that meeting Elle would monumentally change the course of his life, but she is truly unlike anyone he’s ever met. Elle doesn’t mind being alone, as to her it doesn’t equate to loneliness. She brings him a sense of peace he hasn’t felt in years and her gift, a gift she hasn’t shared with anyone else is truly beyond this world. It doesn’t take long to grow close to her and Hudson can’t imagine a world without her.
Hudson has no idea how he went from never knowing Elle to how he could not go a day without never speaking to her. She becomes a link to his calm and their lives become wrapped up in everything important.
When Elle finds out that her father, a man she’s never met, leaves her an estate, really a castle, but with stipulations upon receiving this massive gift. What does one do with a castle? How does she meet the stipulations? Can she really take something from a man she never knew? These are just some of the questions that plague her mind on top of what is also happening upon meeting Hudson. These stories are intertwined and all of these feelings go together, but how will it all turn out…only one way to find out is to read this magical story about a witch, a yoga instructor and an inherited castle.
LJ Evans brings forth emotions and connects them to the world around us in a way that will light up your senses in a whole new way. My skin felt electric and everything buzzed around me as I read this book. It’s truly a magical journey that will make you believe in love.

Synopsis:

Today was a fairy taleโ€ฆ
I inherited a fortune from a dad I never knew,
And a thoroughly charming guy asked me out.

Unfortunately, my fairy tale could disappear in ninety days…
Because thereโ€™s an impossible task to complete,
And a greedy cousin plotting against me.

Plus, Iโ€™m not your typical fairy tale princess.
I have a secret that might send my charming running,
And threatens my future if the press finds out.

If today was a fairy taleโ€ฆ
Why does my happily ever after look so far out of reach?

From award-winning author, LJ Evans, comes aย contemporary romanceย filled with all the magic, hope, and love of a fairy tale plus the slow-burn, old-soul vibe her fans adore. Inspired by Taylor Swiftโ€™s โ€œToday Was a Fairytale,โ€ this small-town romance is pure escapism.

A full-length, standaloneย adultย romance.

BLURB

Dane Goldenโ€”Best friend. Temptation in football cleats. Roommate?

Iโ€™m screwed.

His followers donโ€™t call him Pretty Boy D for nothing. The guy is, literally, Godโ€™s gift to women. I should know. Iโ€™ve watched chicks throw themselves at him since puberty.

Sharing his loft should be simple. Easy. But shortly after I settle in, we realize being “just friends” was so much easier when we werenโ€™t sleeping under the same roof.

Seven years of thinking we had this down to a science goes out the window the night Dane sees my โ€œNever Have I Everโ€ list. Now, heโ€™s on a mission to help me cross off the top four items. Some of which arenโ€™t quite as innocent as heโ€™d expect.

What heโ€™s proposing will break the rules we agreed to when I first came to stay here. He wants me to give in, to let my guard down and face my feelings for once. At least, thatโ€™s what that wicked look in his eyes and the mounting heat between us suggests.

This isnโ€™t how I imagined being roommates would go. But a girl can only stare temptation in its green eyes for so long and not weaken.

My best friend wants to have his way with me and, right or wrongโ€ฆ I think I might let him.

***

Pretty Boy D is a full-length standalone novel. This book can absolutely be read on its own, but when youโ€™re done, itโ€™s recommended that you check out more from the Golden triplets and Joss in the complete enemies-to-lovers trilogy, KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP.

Do you enjoy the frustratingly hot push and pull of a good friends-to-lovers or roommates-to-lovers romance? Then youโ€™ll love getting to know Dane and Joss. Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this oneโ€™s only for the 18+ crowd. Expect an HEA and no trigger warnings needed.

https://bit.ly/3hGcxXr

Blurb:

Unapologetically f*cked up. Heartlessly cruel. Broken beyond repair.

Corvus, Rook, and Grey โ€“ The Crows.

Bred in a world of gang wars, violence, and secrets, they rule the bloody town of Thorn Valley and all the people in itโ€ฆtoo bad for me Iโ€™ve never been good at kissing ass or keeping quiet.

Even if their savage spirits awaken something inside of me I thought was long dead, I canโ€™t break. I wonโ€™t.

They think they scare me, that Iโ€™ll run and hide, but the jokeโ€™s on them. The Crows arenโ€™t the first monsters Iโ€™ve faced, and they wonโ€™t be the last. There are worse evils out there waiting to take their stab at Ava Jade Mason.

I say let them try. Iโ€™m tired of running. Tired of holding back my darkness. Thorn Valley isnโ€™t ready for a new boogie man. Too bad Iโ€™m already here.

Crooked Crows is a dark enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance, meaning the main character will have more than one love interest.

Warning: This series contains foul language, explicit sexual content, graphic depictions of gang violence, and jealous/possessive themes. Recommended for readers aged eighteen and up. Please read responsibly.

Review – Broken Hearts by Rebecca Jenshak

57317681. sy475

Broken Hearts; Campus Nights #3ย 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 13, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Sports Romance

Author: Rebecca Jenshak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

ALL the heart emoji’s!! This new addition to the Campus Nights series is fall-in-love fun, completely adorable, and it has the perfect amount of emotion to push Rhett Rauthruss to the top of Jenshak’s best book boyfriend list!

How Rebecca Jenshak continues to top herself when writing these amazing men and then making me fall for each and every single one of them is a true artform and yet she has proven herself once again that she is a goddess of this art.

Rhett Rauthruss was a monogamous relationship man, who entered collage with a girlfriend (one absolutely none of his friends liked – more to how she treated him and his friends vs. who she was a person), but Rhett stayed with her for multiple reason, which we find out in this book and honestly, once you get to know Rhett, he is loyal, sweet, smart, pretty much everything you’d want in a long term partner and I can see why Carrie – his ex – didn’t want to give him up. From past books there was a sense that he didn’t want to let of his relationship, but now that we get a chance inside Rhett’s mind there was more going on and it only makes him a nicer guy. I’m telling you, Rhett is top shelf book boyfriend material.

Sienna Hale is in her last year of Valley U and aside from figure skating, which she loves, it won’t take her beyond competitions at school. She has to make a choice what she wants to do after college, but nothing really excites her, until she literally bumps into, or more correctly, a large brick wall of a hockey player plows her over on the ice rink. From the first time she meets Rhett he does and says everything wrong, but there is still something about the man that sets her heart thumping and not in the bad way that she knows she needs to keep a watch on. While she does have a heart condition, being with Rhett is exciting, but should she really get her hopes up and jump into something with school graduation looming?

Broken Hearts is probably more focused on Valley U sports than some of Jenshak’s more recent books which made for a really exciting plot along with the love story. Having both main characters involved on the ice was a brilliant twist and I loved that addition. Both Sierra and Rhett are supportive of each other’s sport and understand the physicality of what it takes to be a collegiate athlete. I enjoyed their competitive streak, but also their soft, intimate moments since they both knew rest was a huge part of recovery in staying healthy. They were a perfect match.

I also loved how Rhett handled everything revolving around his ex. From the beginning of this series Carrie was over the top and I liked that it didn’t stop cold turkey just because they were broken up. He may be a big, tough hockey player, but he’s also a sweet, vulnerable man and I really enjoyed that side of Rhett. It carried over in his new relationship with Sierra which showed that is just the type of man he is and it certainly made me fall harder for him.

Broken Hearts is truly a perfect addition to this series, but also a really good book read as a standalone.

Synopsis:

Sheโ€™s a figure skater. Heโ€™s a hockey player. Things are about to heat up on the ice.

Rhett Rauthruss is single for the first time in six years. Heโ€™s fresh off a long-term, long-distance relationship and ready to make the most of whatโ€™s left of college.
Party with his boys, get to the Frozen Four with his team, and maybe play the field for a change.

Sienna Hale knows a thing or two about heartbreak. Sheโ€™s a college athlete about to skate for the last time, and nothing is going to throw her off course. Not her worries about finding a job after college, not the whispers of last yearโ€™s accident on the ice, and not the cute hockey player who keeps asking her out.

They think they want different things, but when it heats up between them, there’s no denying they have something in common–even if it’s just for a night.

Review – Pretty Boy D by Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

57547883. sy475

Pretty Boy D; Kings of Cypress Prep #4ย 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: July 9, 2021

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

Authors: Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I loved, LOVED returning to Cypress Pointe with the Golden boys. Dane and Joss were a total feel good, smexy, friends falling in love story. Sigh…it was perfect.

Joss really does love her best friend, but her parents once began as friends before their marriage fell apart, so she’d rather keep Dane as a friend than ever give into the feelings he stirs inside her and lose him forever. However, when they move in together that closeness makes it harder to contain her emotions and giving in to him seems so much easier. Loving Dane as a friend has always been easy, how much easier would it be to love him as a lover? Dane in nothing by sleeping pants is walking smexy sin.

Dane truly has a heart of gold and has been in love with his best friend since he was twelve. It’s taken seven years to finally be able to tell Joss how he feels and once those feelings are unleashed, it’s really hard to bottle them back up. He wants her in his life if only she would let him in. Dane would give her the world if she would let him. He will take her anyway he can, even if friendship is the only way, but in his dirty fantasies she’s already a dream come true.

While these two may seem to have been inevitable, as both of Dane’s brother pretty much point out to him all the time, the road to happiness is pitted with unknowns; like potential lovers, and angst, like job opportunities, plus so much more. There is nothing that is guaranteed and a friendship like Dane and Joss’ proves that nothing in life is easy or comes without hardship, but anything worthy gained is worth the trouble in earning it.

Synopsis:

Dane Goldenโ€”Best friend. Temptation in football cleats. Roommate?

Iโ€™m screwed.

His followers donโ€™t call him Pretty Boy D for nothing. The guy is, literally, Godโ€™s gift to women. I should know. Iโ€™ve watched chicks throw themselves at him since puberty.

Sharing his loft should be simple. Easy. But shortly after I settle in, we realize being “just friends” was so much easier when we werenโ€™t sleeping under the same roof.

Seven years of thinking we had this down to a science goes out the window the night Dane sees my โ€œNever Have I Everโ€ list. Now, heโ€™s on a mission to help me cross off the top four items. Some of which arenโ€™t quite as innocent as heโ€™d expect.

What heโ€™s proposing will break the rules we agreed to when I first came to stay here. He wants me to give in, to let my guard down and face my feelings for once. At least, thatโ€™s what that wicked look in his eyes and the mounting heat between us suggests.

This isnโ€™t how I imagined being roommates would go. But a girl can only stare temptation in its green eyes for so long and not weaken.

My best friend wants to have his way with me and, right or wrongโ€ฆ I think I might let him.

***

Pretty Boy D is a full-length standalone novel. This book can absolutely be read on its own, but when youโ€™re done, itโ€™s recommended that you check out more from the Golden triplets and Joss in the complete enemies-to-lovers trilogy, KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP.

Do you enjoy the frustratingly hot push and pull of a good friends-to-lovers or roommates-to-lovers romance? Then youโ€™ll love getting to know Dane and Joss. Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this oneโ€™s only for the 18+ crowd. Expect an HEA and no trigger warnings needed.

Review – Waste My Time by Kelsey Clayton

Waste My Time (North Haven University #4)

Waste My Time; North Haven University #4
(#4 within a series)

Publication Date: July 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/ Second Chance/Surprise Pregnancy Romance

Author: Kelsey Clayton

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Emotional, gripping, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to say goodbye to NHU until the perfect ending.

Waste My Time is a second chance romance filled with so much emotion, it shows how much Clayton poured her heart and soul into this book as it pulled at all of my heartstrings.

I am a product of a second chance romance myself and I can tell you that every thought and emotion that Kennedy possessed I felt at one time or another. My soul ached for this girl as she struggled with self identity, jealousy, grief, sadness, just to name a few of the emotions that ran through her mind as she came to grips with her relationship that was disintegrating right before her eyes.

How does this happen? Easton Donovan was in love with another girl in high school, Tessa, but he never really let her go even when he began his relationship with Kennedy. No matter how strong their relationship was, that doubt, that fear, that lack of trust, well…it only takes one time to break what you believe was strong and Easton only had himself to blame for throwing it all away.

Their story is one that grew out of that broken trust and this entire book is whether they piece it back together or just walk away. It’s heartbreaking, truly emotional, and I loved every moment of this book.

I especially loved how Kelsey didn’t make their road an easy fix. It wasn’t won over a bought trinket, or a dinner out, or steamy bedroom time. Kennedy and Easton both have to work at building what was shattered. I both love and completely understand building a foundation making this an emotional book that was a complete page turner.

With this being the last book in the NHU series, Kelsey seamlessly brought in past characters for bittersweet moments, or for probably the best moment in the entire series ever – the bro-shower! OMG!! I was dying laughing. Waste My Time was nowhere near a waste of time to read, it was perfect and the best possible way to end a phenomenal series.

Synopsis:
My name is Easton Donovan,
and I massively screwed up.

I shouldโ€™ve given her the world.
Shouldโ€™ve been everything she deserves.
Instead, I broke her like every promise Iโ€™ve ever made.

The darkness tells me to let her go.
Memories of my past keep me from letting her in.
Someone should tell her that loving me is a losing game.

Just being around her is a high Iโ€™ve never known.
If she knows whatโ€™s good for her, sheโ€™ll cut me off.
Given the chance, Iโ€™ll ruin her the way Iโ€™ve done to others.
But with the bomb she just dropped, sheโ€™s here to stay.

Sheโ€™s flawless innocence.
Iโ€™m toxic destruction.
And the selfish part is, I need her.

Truth be told, Kennedy Lehigh could be the one to save me from myself.

Whoever said when life hands you lemons to make lemonade can suck it!

Everything is falling apart.

Rome is in jail for murdering our father.

Holland is in the hospital fighting for her life.

And I havenโ€™t spoken to my best friend in God knows how long.

Oh, but it gets worse.

Iโ€™ve fallen in love with my nemesis, too.

It might not seem like a big deal to most, but it sure is to me.

Especially since my heart still longs for the green-eyed boy, I vowed to love for eternity.

But Iโ€™m not the only one suffering.

Saint is too.

I feel his misery in every kiss he gives me, in every caress and embrace.

Weโ€™re not whole.

Not as long as we donโ€™t have him.

If I want to heal all three broken hearts, there is only one way to go about it.

And that is to be fearless enough to fight for our happy ending.

Theyโ€™re both mine, and I wonโ€™t let either of them go without a fight.

*Fearless is the last book in the duet focusing on Elle Graysonโ€™s love triangle in The Privileged of Pembroke High series.

*This is a bully/enemy-to-lovers, friends to lovers, contemporary romance, full-length novel.*Recommended 18+ due to mature language, sensitive content and adult situations featuring m/f, m/m, m/f/m.

Review – Cursed by K.K. Allen

57932210. sy475

Cursed; Enchanted Gods #1
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: July 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Mythology/Fantasy Romance

Author: K.K. Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is Greek mythology, magic, and coming of age all rolled into one. It’s the perfect blend of storytelling for lovers of fantasy to get lost in and I loved the entire thing!

Kat – Katrina Summers – has always felt different, but couldn’t explain why or how mysterious things happened around her until she was sent to live with her grandmother after her mother passed away. Losing her mother was tough enough, but finding out her grandmother, whom she’d never met, is the founder of a small beach town and the Summers name is basically attached to everything, well for Kat, it was a lot to take in.

Her grandmother, Rose Summers, is a woman with a lot of power, but just how much power Rose Summers truly has might not be the biggest mystery Kat has to solve while she’s living in Florida. She is surrounded by questions that she doesn’t even know to ask, and her frustration grows as the secrets mount around her. Kat spends time seeking answers to her past, the town, and secrets that continually pop up, but could the answers to those things be intertwined more closely than she ever thought possible?

On top of secrets, Kat finds an instant connection with Alec Stone, a popular boy who is sweet and particularly nice to the new girl in town. Kat also finds herself in the path of Johnny Pierce who instantly dislikes her, a feeling Kat is more familiar with from the town she used to live in. Johnny dislikes Kat upon first sight and while she doesn’t understand why, she tries to stay out of his way. These two boys couldn’t be more different than night and day and as much as Kat would like to stay away from one of them, she seems to cross his path no matter where she goes.

Probably my favorite parts are how Greek Mythology weaves in and out through the entire story (I’m such a geek for mythology and folklore). Like a lot of Greek love tragedies, Kat’s story is shaping up to be one fraught with danger, peril, sacrifice, loss, and of course epic love.

Cursed is just the first story in this epic ride with lots more to come and I can hardly wait to see what happens and who is truly going to make it out alive.
