New Release: These Thorn Kisses by Saffron A. Kent

 

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

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

That’s all she knows about him though.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Review – These Thorn Kisses by Saffron A. Kent

58295359. sy475

These Thorn Kisses; St. Mary’s Rebels #3 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: December 7, 2021

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

Author: Saffron A. Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

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

Blog Tour – A Gorgeous Villain by Saffron A. Kent

Release Date: June 3

Two years ago, Reed Jackson betrayed Calliope Thorne and broke her heart. So she stole his most prized possession – a white mustang – and drove it into the lake for revenge.

Now, Callie is stuck at a reform school while Reed is off at college, living his life without repercussions.

Until he comes back.

With him comes back all the feelings that Callie has been trying to bury: anger and heartbreak.

But most of all, desire. At the sight of his beautiful but lying lips and his gunmetal gray eyes that still taunt and smolder when he looks at her.

Whatever though. It’s not as if Callie is ever going to fall for her ex-boyfriend again. Or let him corner her in a bar one night and touch her, kiss her…

Neither is she going to kiss him back. Or worse, sleep with him.

Because that would make her naïve and foolish.

Oh, and also pregnant.

And there’s no way Callie is ever going to get pregnant at eighteen and with Reed’s baby, no less. The guy she hates.

The guy who taught her all about heartbreak. Who might look like a gorgeous hero but really is the villain of her story.

NOTE – This book is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s and does not contain cheating.

Review – A Gorgeous Villain by Saffron A. Kent

55237214. sy475

A Gorgeous Villain; St. Mary’s Rebels #2 
(Interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 3, 2021

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

Author: Saffron A. Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A  love story that honestly rocked me with how intense these two characters were.

First off, I adore the writing style of Saffron Kent. It’s completely different to most authors I currently read, which is probably why I’m drawn to her, not to mention her books are excellent. Her stories are filled with symbolism and foreshadowing which remind me of classic literature. I also love how Saffron has made each St. Mary book unique according to traits of each character. It really gives each storyline its own flavor which in extension displays the characters unique love.

Arrow and Salem’s story carried a poetic timbre throughout their entire story, which was entirely fitting for them, whereas Reed and Callie’s story reads more like a three act play.  Why is this symbolic? Well, I hope you find out, but here’s a few key notes;  love, heartbreak, remorse, growth, more tragedy, and of course a big end scene. Sounds a lot like a Shakespearean play doesn’t it? Hmmmm. Well, let’s hope Reed and Callie live through theirs since Shakespeare doesn’t like to keep his players alive. Although this is a romance novel so fingers crossed.

Reed is going to melt you right to the ground. He has layers and layers and even more layers. Keep unwrapping that gorgeous villain, Reed is all that and a bag of chips.

Callie evolves in the years she’s attended St. Mary’s. Stronger and not so naïve. Everyone has a moment where they regret huge mistakes, but I think Callie recognizes that the huge turning point in her life made her a better woman and sometimes we all need those moments of falling down to get back up stronger.

While this story can be read on it’s own, it’s truly best to read them together as the girls are all friends and lean on each other for support, but if you haven’t read book one, don’t worry, this love story stands on its own.

Synopsis:

NOTE – This book is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s. The book contains NO CHEATING.

Two years ago, Reed Jackson betrayed Calliope Thorne and broke her heart. So she stole his most prized possession – a white mustang – and drove it into the lake for revenge.

Now, Callie is stuck at a reform school while Reed is off at college, living his life without repercussions.

With him comes back all the feelings that Callie has been trying to bury: anger and heartbreak.

Review:

This anthology is jammed packed with love stories. There is everything from catching up on favorite characters to brand new short stories from 30 authors! A couple of the short snippets, I’m really hoping there will be longer books coming in the future, but until then…here are a few of reviews from some of my favorite authors contained in this anthology!

Arrow and Salem by Saffron A. Kent – Arrow and Salem have made it through a lot, but their wedding is finally here, however, Salem’s sister reaches out one last time. This short is intense. Also, for fans of this series, Saffron gives us a peek into what’s coming up. Squeeeee!!!!

Dash and Holly by Susan Stoker – A new short story that is suspenseful and steamy. It is the perfect story to be read back to back with Riley Edwards, Magic and Stella.

Magic and Stella by Riley Edwards – Magic and Stella and the best friends to Dash and Holly and their love story happens right alongside same timeline. Both short stories are full of suspense and steam and wonderfully written.

There are so many stories and I can truly recommend them all, so jump in and read your favorites or find new favorites. It’s all good.

New Release – My Darling Arrow by Saffron A. Kent

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: My Darling Arrow
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: September 17, 2020

BLURB

Darling Arrow,
I shouldn’t be writing this.
It’s not as if I’m ever going to send you this letter, and there are a million reasons why.
First of all, I was sent to this reform school as a punishment for a petty, totally inconsequential crime. Not to ogle the principal’s hot son around the campus.
Second of all, you’re a giant jerk. You’re arrogant and moody and so cold. Sometimes I think I shouldn’t even like you.
But strangely your coldness sets me on fire.
The way your athletic body moves on the soccer field, and the way your powerful thighs sprawl across that motorcycle of yours, make me go inappropriately breathless.
But that’s not the worst part.
The worst part is that you, Arrow Carlisle, are not only the principal’s hot son.
You also happen to be the love of my sister’s life.
And I really shouldn’t be thinking about my sister’s boyfriend, or rather fiancé (I overheard a conversation about the ring that I shouldn’t have).
Now if I can only stop writing you these meaningless letters that I’ll never send and you’ll never read…
Never yours,
Salem

Review – My Darling Arrow by Saffron A. Kent

My Darling Arrow; St. Mary’s Rebels #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Saffron A. Kent

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This unrequited, doomed love story completely put a spell on me. I was enraptured by the intense story of Arrow and Salem, so totally addicted to the poetic words that Saffron Kent wrote that I was slain over and over again by this heartbreaking book until she put me back together again.

Salem has secretly loved her sister’s boyfriend, Arrow, for eight years. Eight years that she harbored the shameful secret in which she feels has warped her witchy heart. You see, not only does Salem believe her name is witchy, but her eyes turn up in a witchy way, and her heart is twisted to love someone else’s love. Only a witchy person could do these things and fate her to a doomed unrequited love.

The deep given grief over the state of Salem’s fate, from the very start of the book, is heavy. The remorse over her feelings, over the state of her doomed life is felt so deep, it is an ache that she carries with her throughout the entire story. A constant ache that she wears like armor, but one that Arrow is drawn to when he returns back home.

You see, Arrow has always been a perfectionist. A person with high ambition that never strayed from distraction. However, his life has currently imploded and his perfectly crafted life is out of alignment. He’s angry, he’s volatile, and he’s drawn to Salem’s presence. He doesn’t understand it, but he’s willing to take her imperfections, her very essence and wring her until she’s dry and he feels normal again.

Resigned to her fate, a fate given to her by her birth name, Salem gives herself to Arrow for however long he will have her. She does everything not out of spite, or revenge, or unkindness. She truly sees herself as having only one purpose in life and that is to fill in the cracks of Arrow’s life. She wants him whole. She wants him fulfilled. She wants her Arrow back.

What neither of them realize is that Salem originally fell for a completely different man. The Arrow she gets to know now has worldly experiences and time on his side. They both want to get back to something before, but as they come together (combustible, gorgeous, and decadently) they are becoming so much more.

My Darling Arrow is intense from the beginning to end and the story will stick with me for a long time to come.

New Release – Dreams of 18 by Saffron A. Kent

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Dreams of 18
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 10, 2019

BLURB

Violet Moore is in love with a man who hates her.

Well, to be fair, she kinda deserves it.

On her eighteenth birthday, she got drunk and threw herself at him, causing a huge scandal in their sleepy suburban town.

Now everyone thinks she’s a slut and he has disappeared. Rumor has it that he’s been living up in the mountains of Colorado, all alone and in isolation.

But Violet is going to make it right.

She’s going to find him and bring him back.

No matter how cruel and mean he is, how much he hurts her with his cold-hearted and abrasive ways, she won’t give up.

And neither will she think about his tempting lips or his sculpted muscles or his strong hands. The hands that she wants on her body, touching her, feeling her skin…

The hands that make her want to forget everything and kiss Graham Edwards – Mr. Edwards, actually – again.

Because you don’t go around kissing your best friend’s dad, do you?

Even though that’s all you ever dream about.

Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: April 11, 2019

BLURB

Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world — just one — and his name is Zachariah Prince.

In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.

She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams.

It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible.

But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach.

Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

This review is from: January 17, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

This is a collection of steamy, contemporary stories that revolve around love and the song that inspired it. Personally I felt that some songs were more up front with their musically titled theme than others, but maybe it could have also been that I knew some songs better than others. Regardless, like any anthology I was drawn to certain stories more than others, but overall, the anthology holds something for everyone and for the price you can’t go wrong.

MixTape is packed with excellent authors and lots of steamy romance. Here are just a few of my personal favorites:

“Say Yes”-Elle Kennedy

Have you ever attended a wedding hoping for a quick hookup? Well, Emilia was away for a weekend wedding and she was definitely swiping left and right. Her perfect match, a man named Dirk (really Dirk?) Well, he was the perfect walking wet panty dream, which was perfect for her one night stand. The only snag in her perfect plan was when the bride introduces her (the next morning) to the groom, who just so happens to be none-other than Dirk (yeah, she knew that name spelled trouble).

“Say It First” Nikki Sloane

When Anna Douglas made it big in Hollywood, she didn’t really stay connected to people back home. It wasn’t that she was a snob, it was that she wasn’t connected before she made it big, so when a friend request popped up from Jamie Campbell, one of the most popular guys from high school, she couldn’t resist accepting. Months and conversations later they have become each other’s best friend, but could it be more? With hectic schedules and never declaring anything but friendship is it time to move beyond the chat room?

There are several others that were delicious and full of extra steam and I hope you pick up this anthology for yourself so you can read each and every story to discover just how much fun reading MixTape was.
