Excerpt

“I…” I didn’t even know. I couldn’t explain what I didn’t know. “Ask me about Jake in a different way.”
“There is no other way.”
“You know there is! Ask it in a different way.” I shoved up to my feet. This was the fight here.
I was sick of the killing.
I could not handle one more body, especially not someone I knew.
My chest heaved. “Ask it in a different way.”
I liked Jake. I was hurt by what he said, but he wasn’t on my list anymore.
I frowned. “What happened with Cavers?”
“None of your business!” he erupted, his hands flying in the air, but he was moving farther away from me. His back hit the wall, and he let me see him, how haunted he was, how stricken. He let it all out for me to see and read, though I wasn’t sure he knew it. “I don’t run my decisions through some pussy I like plowing.”
Okay, now I was mad.
“Take that back,” I said quietly.
He swore, low and long. Then he moved, flipping a chair into the wall. It impaled there, and the wall held it. It looked like an abstract piece of art.
“Take it back!” I clipped out, folding my arms over my chest.
He looked away.
I didn’t know what was going on here, but fuck him if he didn’t take back calling me pussy he liked to plow.
I screamed, “Take it back!”
“No!” He was across the room and in my face in the next second. I braced myself, but he didn’t touch me.
He stopped just short of it, his breath in my cheek, his eyes taking me in, scanning my face.
He was panicking.
I saw it now, lurking there.
Good! That filled me with satisfaction.
My chest started pounding.
No, that was my heart.
It was thumping in my chest, getting stronger, faster—a steady and powerful beat now. I could feel it all the way to my toes—in my fingers, my neck. His eyes lingered on my lips.
He couldn’t look away.
Stark hunger flashed in his eyes, and he raised a hand, holding it in the air.
It curved gently, as if he wanted to touch my neck, or the side of my face.
But he didn’t move. He just held it there, a few inches from my skin.
His eyes lifted to mine. “You bitch.”
My heart still pounded, trying to reach him. “You’re a murdering asshole,” I whispered back, seething.
“What?”he sneered. “You want to fuck now? Forget you put a fucking gun to your head?”
“Don’t kill Jake.”
He pressed into me, his eyes wild, on the edge of control. “Why?” His breath was hot on me. He bent down, his eyes glittering now.
Then he found his control. He rested one hand against the wall, next to my head. The other found my hip and slid up, moving under my shirt, raising it.
God. I almost moaned.
Wetness flooded me, and I started to throb.
I wanted him.
So fucking bad.
He bent and his lips grazed over mine, my cheeks, my chin. Tingles raced through me.
Jesus.
I wanted him deep inside of me. I shifted, pressing against him, and both of us groaned from the contact.
I began moving, a slow grind, and he was quiet, grinding back.
This was different from the other times.
The terms had flipped. Roles were changing. Everything was being upended between us.

Review – Canary by Tijan

Canary 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: October 4, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Mafia/Dark Romance

Author: Tijan

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tijan has blown me away with Canary!! Amazing drama, fantastic development, a well thought out story arc that captured my attention from the very first sentence and kept it until the very last page.

I was completely drawn into this new world by Tijan. I was fascinated by the characters and digging through the layers of plot development that even as the body count was piling up I was still rooting for the romance between these dark characters. Fantastic!!

Girl/Carrie/Ash – The name of the leading heroine continually changed, and I don’t want to go into the depth of why that is important, but her story behind how she ends up working with the mafia is fascinating in itself. The Canary, as she becomes known, works for Raize, or more like she was won in a poker game because of her unique skill set. She is a human lie detector, a valuable asset in the mafia world when time is short, and there are people to kill. That is Raize’s speciality, which is why he sought her out, but over time their connection grows, something neither one of them expected.

It’s hot, insatiable, passionate and oh yeah…hot!! It could be the fact that they are continually running for their lives and could die at moments notice that makes them never keep their hands off each other, but whatever it is, their intensity is there and adds to the story tenfold.

Raize, himself, has quite the backstory, aside from being a hired mafia killer. Everywhere these two go they draw attention to themselves. It’s not only their good looks, but also their dangerous energy. Will they ever escape the targets on their backs and bigger question is, do they want to?

Canary is fantastic and another wonderful addition for Tijan’s mafia collection!

Synopsis:

Review – The Damaged by Tijan

57693291

The Damaged; Insiders #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: February 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult Romance

Author: Tijan

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Welcome back to the world of Bailey and Kash. The world of the elite, but the stakes are different now that Kash’s secret is out and everyone knows that Bailey is Peter Francis’ daughter. The conditions under which Bailey is able to attend school are completely different than when she planned to attend last spring. Now she is surrounded by bodyguards and chauffeured to school like the privileged woman she is, even if she dislikes everything about it.

It doesn’t really hit Bailey why she needs these extreme measures, why she needs the protection, why she needs to actually be different. Her entire life has been thrown into a tailspin. Aside from her extraordinary brain, Bailey was basically ordinary and lead an ordinary life, but now everything is different and it’s not just because she’s Peter’s daughter, it’s also because Kash’s grandfather has a target on her back and will stop at nothing to destroy his own grandson, which means hurting those closest to Kash.

Speaking of Kash, we get a lot more of him in this book. The man is intense and he’s very intense about Bailey and how deep his feelings run for her…it’s super hot. I have no idea when the man sleeps, although it is hinted that he really doesn’t, because he’s on top of everything. His business, Bailey, Bailey’s siblings, Peter, his grandfather, Kash seems to be everywhere, but will it be enough to stop his grandfather from his nefarious plans?

If I had one complaint, I would have loved more from Bailey’s siblings in this book, although we did get introduced to new characters, her college friends/classmates. I was missing the connections Bailey made in the first book, however, Matt does comes around more than anyone and he is at least a good relief to some of the intense situations, when he wasn’t creating them himself. Of all the secondary characters, Matt definitely intrigues me the most, and I’d like to see more of his inner thoughts (perhaps Tijan will reveal those to us someday).

The ending is not only a big cliffy, but WOW! Mindblowing in a way of how Tijan could leave us readers hanging like that!?! It’s going to be a long winter until we all have answers.

Synopsis:

The world knows about Kash.

Both Bailey and Kash were used to living in the shadows, but now they must live in the public eye.
Kash is figuring out his new found role against his grandfather, and Bailey is starting her graduate program late. At university, everyone is watching Bailey, and some are wondering if her legendary father, Peter Francis, bought her way into the elite program.

Meanwhile, Bailey’s former stepmother is in jail and at home, a mysterious aunt is living with them while Bailey’s mother and Peter are sleeping together. Again?!
But then, a new treasure trove of secrets is revealed and Bailey and Kash must decide if they will trust each other or take on the world alone.

Blog Tour – The Insiders by Tijan

“Obsessed from page one! Another addicting read from Tijan.”
— Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times bestselling author

The Insiders, an all new page-turning and addictive romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan, is available now!

Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen — a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She learns her father is billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She finds all this out when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s also an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again.

It’s a no-brainer.

After this, three things become clear for Bailey:

1. She has to live at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.

2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.

3. She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.

A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…

Excerpt

We were heading out of Chicago, and maybe another half hour or so from the small town where my mom and I lived. 

Wait. Second thought—where we used to live? 

What would my mom do now? Could Chrissy Hayes remain in that house after I was just attacked, almost taken hostage? I called my mother by all kinds of names—Chrissy Hayes, Chrissy, or Mom. Or, well, a whole other kind of names too, because to say she’s a character is putting it mildly. And we have an interesting relationship to say the least. 

I might be deflecting here. 

Numb. I was numb. I should be pissing my pants, but instead I’m ruminating over how I refer to my mother. 

Could I stay in that house after what just happened? 

I’d been planning to spend time with Chrissy, helping with the house and working at the local computer store to make some extra money before I left for school. But now . . . fuck if I knew. 

Myriad curses went through my mind as I realized Chrissy would have to move. 

Shivers pierced me as I went over what had happened tonight, but then we were pulling into a driveway, next to a booth. A large gate barricaded us from moving forward. 

Official police business, my tech ass. 

Then again, nothing seemed official. I was told that I was being taken to my mother, but I left with two detectives. Bright and Wilson. They introduced themselves, then said she couldn’t see me in the hospital. They didn’t explain why, but I was to go with them to see her. 

I went. 

I was in the backseat of their unmarked car a few minutes later. 

Bright’s window rolled down. She flashed her badge. “We’re expected.” 

The attendant nodded, hitting a button. The gate opened, showing a campus of buildings behind it. Some made of dark red brick. Some seemingly made of reflective windows, top to bottom. Some painted totally black. A large parking lot sat in the middle of the buildings. “Phoenix Tech” was on a sign in front of the first building, but we went past, heading around it and toward a smaller building on the opposite end of the lot. 

My tongue was glued to the back of my throat. We were at Phoenix Tech headquarters. 

I had yearned to get an internship there every year since fifth grade, and then through college. I kept applying, but they kept denying. Some might say I was being desperate. I prefer determined. It’s a quality that I feel is honorable. Plus, I wasn’t above hoping they’d take pity on me one day. It worked, because while I might not have been good enough to walk their hallways, I was good enough for them to give me charity. They awarded me the majority of my grants for undergrad, so I’d been able to go to college debt free. I’d been expecting that to change for graduate school, but it hadn’t. Or, well, it kind of had. 

I was hired as a graduate assistant, starting in the fall, which gave me a stipend, but the rest was covered by another scholarship from Phoenix Tech. 

Phoenix Tech was one of the world’s leading companies on cyber security. I was going into information systems, which was close enough. A job here would be a dream. 

“My mom is here?” I asked, when Bright parked, and both her and Wilson got out of the vehicle. 

Neither answered. 

Bright opened my back door and motioned for me, slipping her sunglasses over her eyes. “It’s time for you to find out some answers.”

Review – The Insiders by Tijan

(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: May 4, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Suspense Romance

Author: Tijan

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tijan starts off with a girl being kidnapped right from her room…OMG…this book starts off with a bang!

Through Bailey, we go through the ups and down of a girl who is uprooted from a normal life, while yes, she has a photographic memory, she was just a normal girl. In one night she learns she has a billionaire father and family, her life is on the line, and the rich life is nothing like TMZ makes it out to be.

There is a lot to unpack within this first book of a new trilogy by Tijan, but with that said, it’s also a slower paced book, most likely because of the three book overall span.  There is mystery, romance, and drama all contained within this new adventure and I’m really excited to see where the storyline is headed.

After Bailey is kidnapped which then forces a myriad of events to unfold in her life, ones she’s dreamed about since she was a little girl; meeting her father (whom she thought was an entirely different man and deceased), her half siblings (ones she didn’t know she was related to, but due to their fame she actually knew existed), and then ultimately her stepmother (who is supremely cold to her for a multitude of reasons).

The only man she finds strange comfort in is Kash who is mysterious through most of the book in his protective, broody, and over the top ways. Bailey can’t place why she feels the need to turn to him, even when he’s being so secretive all the time. Bailey is surrounded by all of these new family members, guards, and staff, but Kash is the one who continually comes to her rescue time and again, so if nothing else he does seem to care, but there is also this underlying wonder if he’s really doing it for her own welfare, could there be another purpose?

Bailey’s siblings, especially the oldest, Matt, is a swinging pendulum of tugging emotions. It’s hard to say where on the spectrum to place his loyalty or his true feelings throughout the book. You definitely get the feeling that he’s had a tough time as not only the eldest child, but that he too has a tough time with the stepmother, Quinn. That’s right, Matt is also a half sibling of the younger siblings living under the roof, so why was he raised in alongside his father and Bailey wasn’t?

There are a lot of mysteries surrounding Bailey’s upbringing, her genius and memory, and the man she’s falling in love with. We only begin to uncover a portion of what’s happening at the Francis estate in this first book.

Synopsis:

The Insiders is the first in a brand new, page-turning romance trilogy from New York Times bestseller, Tijan!

Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen—a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She finds out her father is actually billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She learns all this when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again. It’s a no-brainer.

After this, three things become clear for Bailey:

1. She’s living at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.

2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.

3. She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.

A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…

Excerpt

“Stars. You made me meet them.”

I was still seeing them. His eyes. So smoldering.

He continued to stare at me, as if seeing me for the first time.

I tensed.

Maybe he was regretting this? Was my one-night stand a one-night finger bang instead?

I tried to stem the disappointment, but… Okay.

A girl had coping mechanisms. I could pull mine up, if I needed to. I was hoping I didn’t need to. I didn’t know how I’d handle that either. Then he must’ve made his decision.

He readjusted his hold on me, standing back from the door and his mouth twitched. “One rule.”

“Yeah?”

I was about to see stars again.

“Don’t call me dude again.”

The Not-Outcast 
(A standalone)

by: Tijan

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tijan plucked out my heart and filled me back up with so many new emotions!! The Not-Outcast is unlike any story you will read. It’s more important than just a romance that blooms between two people, but it’s a look at the love you allow, or don’t allow, in your life and how that love has a ripple effect when the people in your life cast stones around you.

The Not-Outcast is a hugely emotional story that sheds a light on an ugly side of humanity, but it also showcases the heartfelt beauty of goodness and decency on the other side.

Cheyenne hasn’t had the best life, but it’s a life that she hasn’t known any other side of. Her mother, more times than not is strung out on drugs, leaving Cheyenne to fend for herself, walking the streets or living in homeless shelters, when Cheyenne finds herself locked out of her own home or alone, when we find out her own father abandoned her to live this way, but no real reason as to why. Throughout the entire book, Cheyenne is very self reflective of her feelings and truly never wants to burden those around her. So, in the aspect of how she grew up, she is aware enough that she never wants to draw attention to herself or take away from someone else who could be suffering more.

Cheyenne is going to burrow her way into your soul and you are going to wish you had everything in your rights to give her. The moments when Cheyenne truly feels that she is better off alone, not inflicinting her brand of “crazy” on anyone is so saddening and yet so many people have done just that and have walked away in her life. This mental jail that she lives in day after day, made me weep. Tijan breathed life onto the page and saddened my heart for her over and over again.

While Cheyenne dealt with her mental struggles, Cutler was there through it all. He was patient, he was gentle, he was everything Cheyenne needed. When he feels the initial pull to her, yes, it’s pure chemistry, but the more he stays, he knows it’s something bone deep and making that conscious decision to stay is huge.  Falling in love is easy, staying in love takes effort and Cut makes that conscious choice to put in the work. It’s so easy to walk away when someone, for all appearances, isn’t broken on the outside, but on the inside will never get better. While this story isn’t all kisses and roses, Cut has some huge decisions to make on this journey too and none of them are easy, but the way Tijan writes his own path is absolutely perfect.

Cut and Cheyenne together have great chemistry and their love for one another is strong. Cheyenne and her best friends are absolutely amazing together and make me miss my friends something fierce. Cut and his teammates are fantastic and I love their comradery. This entire story is going to touch you and make you think and stick with you long after you finish.

Synopsis:

Cutler Ryder was everything I wasn’t.

He was the hockey star. I was an outcast.
He was best friends with my stepbrother, that same stepbrother who hated me.
His two parents loved him. My mom was a junkie. My dad barely knew me.

Excerpt

“Please, Bren,” Jordan whispered.

I sagged, hearing his plea.

If I didn’t stop, he’d start. I had to stop. I had to stop for him.

“We have to go. It’s done.” That was Cross, but he was the leader speaking now. “Get her in the truck.”

Jordan carried me over. Zellman hopped up and Jordan lifted me to him. I could’ve climbed up myself, but there was something about my crew doing this for me. Handling me. They needed to do this, and a part of me needed to let them.

I glanced back as Jordan was climbing up, coming behind us.

Cross was bent over the guy. He was talking to him. A second later, he pulled his phone out, punching some numbers. Then the phone was back in his pocket, and he was coming for the truck. His eyes held mine for a brief moment before he got behind the wheel.

Cross drove us back as Zellman and Jordan huddled on both sides of me.

My hands were still bleeding, but no one moved to cover them.

That felt fitting, for some reason.

Just let me bleed.

ReviewRead Kay’s Review: Rich Prick

Excerpt:


I’d done my research. Zeke Allen’s cabin was set a good ten miles away from the nearest neighbors. I should’ve been in the clear to sneak onto their land, do a little freestyle camping, and listen to the party sounds like the loser I was. But noooo. I was about to get company.

As I snuck out of my tent, and realized who it was, I almost crapped my pants.

It was Blaise DeVroe, holding hands with Mara Daniels.

As popular girls went, Mara Daniels was one of the nicer ones. She was on the dance team. Dark hair. Shorter, but athletic. The problem with Mara was that she was friends with the other popular girls. Some of them were nasty—hence the reason I wasn’t friends with them. Not that they’d tried to get to know me. Not that I even registered on their radar. But then again, that’s what I did.

I didn’t engage. I didn’t attend. I was on the edge. I was the invisible girl, and here I was, being the invisible girl once more, but man…

When I saw it was him, and then saw how his hand went from holding hers and guiding her to a tree to slipping around and grabbing her ass, something came over me. I couldn’t retreat back to my tent. I couldn’t even stay hidden behind a tree and just listen.

I know, I know. This was all sorts of wrong, but Blaise was Blaise.

He’d become the guy in my dreams, my weird schoolgirl fantasies. He was my high school crush. Everyone had one. If you didn’t, you’re even weirder than me, and that’s saying something. So when I started salivating over Blaise DeVroe, I kinda just let myself go. I mean, nothing was ever going to happen. Guys like him didn’t date girls like me. They didn’t even notice girls like me.

I wasn’t crazy. That’d make me all sorts of delusional.

I was a realist. I knew my place in life’s hierarchy. I was at the bottom. I was not the very bottom—because of my family—but socially, I was barely one rung up the ladder.

Anyway, when Blaise started kissing Mara, when Mara knelt in front of him, when she opened his pants—I lost all train of thought.

And, oh my God.

My whole body was awash with sensations, and I was captivated. Captivated! Entranced. Mesmerized.

I could not look away.

Then I felt throbbing and a warm feeling between my legs, and it was game over. It was all I could do not to make a sound, because I wanted to. So bad. I wanted to moan. I wanted to touch myself, but I didn’t. I kept myself reined in, but watch? Oh yeah. I watched.

I couldn’t not watch.

I watched the whole thing.

I loved the whole thing.

And then at the end of it, I almost died.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Aspen and Blaise had me caught up in their world from the moment I opened the book. Apart these two are a complete mess, making mistakes and avoiding life, but together they not only complete each other, fill in all the gaps they are missing, but they are magic. They bring out the light where darkness used to reside.

While Rich Prick is a complete standalone, it does interconnect with several characters from Tijan’s previous works, and while it may help fill in gaps at the mention of names or events, you can still read this book without having read the others, but still follow along without any trouble.

Both Blaise and Aspen had lived in Fallen Crest when they were younger, but unlike Blaise who kept in touch with the most popular kids in the school, Aspen is a recluse and prefers to be a wallflower among the student population.

Now both have returned for their senior year and Blaise returned like he owned the school, but not a single person even took notice of Aspen… well I take that back, one person did.

Blaise was intrigued by the quiet girl whom no one seemed to really know. When he first saw her watching him, he wondered what her deal was. Even after talking to her he couldn’t seem to shake his fascination and he knew he should let it go, he had enough to deal with in his own home life. Moving back to Fallen Crest after he discovered the man who had raised him wasn’t his biological father only to live closer to his actual father. Add in that he also had a half brother and sister living here wasn’t exactly the thrilling news he wanted to begin his senior year of high school. He was angry all the time.  Angry and ready to fight, except when he was around Aspen. Something he found himself doing more and more of and he wasn’t sure what to think of that.

Aspen was fascinated with Blaise and when he basically pushed his way into her life she allowed him to do so. It wasn’t that she was lonely, given that she had absolutely no friends, that was how she preferred her life. There was something inside Blaise that called to her maybe that same loneliness that they both felt, which was odd because he was always surrounded by people, but they definitely had a connection and she was going to soak it up at every opportunity he gave her. She figured their time was limited no matter what. Everyone in her life always left, why would Blaise be any different.

Trying to navigate between his friends, which included catty girls, huge parties (which set Aspen on edge as a loner), and just the concept of this being a relationship for either one of them, Rich Prick has everything that a really excellent new adult book should be. The right balance of angst, the emotional journey, what happens next, basically Tijan made everything absolutely perfect!

Synopsis:

He walked into school on his first day and owned it.

I guess that’s what happens when you’re a prick, rich, and you’re best friends with the ruling school’s king.

Also didn’t hurt he’s drop dead gorgeous.

That’s all fine.

I mean, I have nothing to do with them.

I’m a loner, invisible, and that’s how I wanted it to be.

I was even proud of it, until I wasn’t.

Until I saw a girl kneel before him.

Until I couldn’t look away.

Until he caught me watching.

His name is Blaise Devroe. My name is Aspen Monson.

He only knew how to get, command, and demand attention.

I knew how to do everything but that.

And this is our story.

Excerpt:

“I don’t like this.”

A hand went to the back of my chair, a head popped up between our two front seats, and that was announced. Mason was in the driver’s seat and I was in the passenger seat. Logan looked at each of us. He was wearing a distinct frown-smirk combo on his face as he said his piece.

Problem was, he’d been saying it since we left Boston, since we landed in California, and since we’d been in the rental and driving three hours past Fallen Crest.

It’d been said. It’d been heard.

We were now at the part where we wanted to murder my brother-in-law. Or, correction, where I wanted to murder my brother-in-law. Mason was stoic and driving. He was able to get in the zone and tune Logan out. Taylor was sitting in her chair, reading on her phone. She had the whole tuning-out thing too.

Not me. I was a mom, so somehow that meant I always had to be aware and alert, and now I was close to grinding my teeth and yelling for a Logan time-out.

Five minutes in the back, please.

Mason grunted. “Tough shit.”

Nice. Maybe he wasn’t so ‘tuned out.’

I looked at Taylor. “Can you keep him under control?”

She glanced up from her phone. “You know the answer to that question. You’ve known him longer.”

Touché.

I’m not sleeping with him.”

Taylor just laughed. “Shouldn’t have said that. He’s probably refraining from twenty different inappropriate jokes as I’m talking.”

Ahem.” Logan gave us both a look. “It’s because I love both of you—in different ways—and respect both of you that I’m not touching that. But Sam…” Logan leveled me with an aggrieved look, his eyebrows raised. “Can you watch what you say? Old Logan would’ve been all over that one, and can you imagine the innuendos?” He gestured to himself, his face tight. “But I’m here. Being polite—”

“Sorry. I thought since you’re older and in law school, you’d be more mature.”

“It’s like you don’t know me at all.” But he was grinning.

“Logan.” Insert some assertive tone here. I had to make my point. “We got a babysitter for the weekend. I got permission for a full weekend off from my training. Your brother is on a much-needed vacation before football training starts, and I have been needing Heather time even though I saw her a few weeks ago.”

I had a point. What was it? “So shut it, okay?”

That was my point.

“All I’m saying is that we were supposed to do the yacht. Nate and Matteo were up for it. Now suddenly we’re doing a camping thing. I’m not clear on the why?”

Mason glanced into the rearview mirror. “It was Nate’s idea. He said something about family research. What’s your issue? You like camping.”

“That’s when we were young. We did stupid shit back then like. We’re old now. If we go camping, I prefer it to be on things like yachts. Or we stay in a mega-mansion and our camping is napping by the pool. I like that type of camping.”

Taylor frowned at him. “Babe.”

He shot her a look, frowning slightly, but his face softened. He reached out, touching her leg. “It’s nothing. I’ll get over it.”

Good.

That was settled.

Two minutes later, it wasn’t.

Read Kay’s Review: Enemies

Excerpt

“Do not think I won’t pick you up and throw you in my truck, head first and everything. I’m two seconds away.”

I stopped and stared at him.

Shit. He meant business. He was glaring at me with eyes that said, “Do not fucking fuck with me, you fucking twit.”

Well. Then.

I sighed. I’ll try reasoning instead. “You’re going to drive me to your house, and then I’ll pack whatever I need and call a cab to take me all the way back to where I’m paying rent. It’s not worth it. Just let me grab a cab now.”

A savage curse bit out, and then his eyes flashed.

His singular warning had been when he told me he was two seconds away. In a flash, he grabbed me, and I was airborne, right into the back of his truck. But he wasn’t done. He leapt up, grabbing the seatbelt over me, and pulled it around me, clicking it in place. He had the door shut, locked, and he was already going around the front before I could even push myself upright and then start to reach for my seatbelt.

By then, he was inside, the engine on, and he shoved off into traffic.

“This is stupid.”

“You’re right. You’re being stupid.” Cursing, he ducked down as a car sped past us. They knew he was driving because they came up on his driver’s side, their phones up and ready to go. It was a car full of teenage girls. “Dammit.”

“Where do you live?”

He opened his mouth, then caught himself. His eyes narrowed in the rearview mirror. “Why?”

I just smiled. “No reason.”

He continued to study me in between still watching the road, and with a soft growl, he shook his head. “I’m not buying it. What? You’re going to tell those girls who are trying to get a picture of me?”

“What’s the difference? I’ll know when you take me to your house. What’s stopping me from posting it on Twitter, or even posting your phone number?”

A litany of curses spewed from him, and the back of his neck was getting red. I was having a heyday with this. It was more fun than I could remember having in a long time.

Until he announced it, “I liked your mom.”

“What?”

“Your mom.” He moved into the far lane, settling back.

I was thinking we had a bit of drive from here, and he settled an arm back on the passenger seat headrest.

“I always liked her. She made me cookies and muffins. And I remember when she tried to teach us to bake cakes from scratch. You were horrible and your cakes tasted terrible, but we’d lie to you. Both of us.”

“You did not—” But I was remembering, and even I hadn’t wanted to taste my cakes.

A tug at my mouth. “She’d wear that ugly yellow apron. She hated that apron.”

“What? I loved that apron. Always felt like it was sunshine. Made me feel warm, even in the winter.”

I noted softly, “That’s why she wore it. For you.”

His eyes lifted to the rearview mirror, holding mine a second again. He swallowed, his Adam’s apple bobbing up and down. “Yeah.” His voice came out raspy. “She was a good woman, and a good mom. She was a good wife. I could always tell.”

I snorted. “Why? Because she wasn’t wasting away like yours?” Then, I winced. That sounded even bitchier to my own ears, more than I thought it would be. “Shit. I’m sorr—”

“Because you guys laughed.” He kept on talking about my family, ignoring what I’d so blatantly pointed out about his own, his face hard. “My parents laughed when they were drunk, and only when they had a party. When there were other people there to laugh with, never the two of them, never the three of us. I was their only kid. I wouldn’t have known better except I half grew up in your home, too, and what I remember the most about growing up was that you guys laughed.”

My throat burned.

“Yeah, we did.” I looked out the window. A hollow feeling starting to dig in my chest. “Until she died. We didn’t laugh much after that.”

“You laughed until then?”

I nodded. I felt the chinks in my armor widening.

I remembered how he did adore my mom. The two acted as if they were conspiring together during our baking lessons, and any time he was in the house. He congregated around her. She congregated closer to him.

“You’re the son she never had.” Then, feeling bad about my shot at his mom, “Your mom cooked for us. I remember that one time she tried to teach us to make lasagna.”

He cracked a grin, barking a laugh. “You sucked at that, too. I never knew lasagna noodles could come out hard like rocks until yours.”

Fuck him, but I was grinning. I couldn’t help myself.

Those were good times, good memories before the shit ones came. And they came soon after that lasagna disaster.

He quieted. “It wasn’t the same. My mom versus yours. We had baking lessons at your house once a month, every first Sunday. My mom tried to teach us how to make Caesar salad, the only second cooking session she gave us, and that one we all got fine. It’s hard to screw up.”

“Says you. You’re perfect at everything.”

He didn’t reply.

I didn’t expect him to. It was true. He knew it. I knew it. The entire nation knew it.

Then from him, “Not at being a friend.”

My stomach kicked.

Hell no. No way. He wasn’t getting back in. No fucking way.

“Oh. God.” I groaned, throwing a hand up to hit my forehead. “Can we not? Can we save the dramatics until I’m able to call a cab to take me back to my place? For real. Enough bonding or whatever it is we were just doing.”

He growled, “You are such a goddamn bitch.”

I retorted, “And you are such a goddamn prick. Drop me the fuck off!”

“With fucking pleasure!”

He gunned the engine, shooting forward in traffic, and weaving until we were nearing my exit. When he took it, I relaxed. The rest of the way was tense and silent, and I knew both of us couldn’t wait to be rid of the other. Then he pulled over to the curb. He didn’t make a move, his only action just unlocking the door.

His head was turned halfway to me, his jaw clenching over and over again.

Fine.

I shoved forward, my head only swimming a little bit as I climbed out of his truck. Once I shut the door and turned around, he’d already hit the engine, tearing away from the curb.

I only had the clothes on my back, on the side of the street, but I’d never been so fucking grateful to be away from him.

Now, turning to the house I wasn’t sure I was still invited to live in, I saw that all the lights were off. Lovely.

ENEMIES ECOVER

Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥

Enemies is a compelling new adult novel that will take your breath away. I needed an entire day to process after reading this amazing book and I needed that day to wade in all the emotions that reading Enemies invoked.

Between Stone and Dusty, Tijan brings you a story that is more than just two people who lost a childhood friendship. Together they deal with grief and loss, but because they are no longer friends the way they deal with it is through a swirling hurricane of emotional turmoil. Both hurting and healing each other at the same time without necessarily discussing their past. This sets off a journey of push and pull that can be a bit destructive at times, but given their age, certainly appropriate too.

Dusty has the need to close herself off to people. Every and anyone she ever gets close to leaves her in some fashion. The tears continually flowed down my face with how she felt about herself. It is heartbreaking. When she meets Stone again for the first time after years of separation, it is explosive. Due to circumstances I don’t want to mention in my review since you need to read them and enjoy, Stone basically barges in and takes over her life. Coming from her public enemy #1 hurricane Dusty is set free.

Even as Stone helps her in small, but also big ways, throughout her healing process you find that perhaps Dusty was never far from his conscious thoughts, maybe tucked into his subconscious for awhile until the time was right for them to need each other once again. Stone doesn’t hold back when it comes to his childhood friend. He is protective and caring, but also steps back when Dusty asks him to step back. You really can’t help but like the big guy who is supposed to be the enemy.

Tijan never fails to write emotionally charged stories that are drenched with deep emotions and still she flashes you what beauty lays beyond heartache. This is why I love reading her books. Make sure you add Enemies to your TBR or preorder it now!

Excerpt Reveal – Crew Princess by Tijan

EXCERPT

You would think one might outgrow violence.

At some age—after inflicting so much pain, seeing too much blood, hearing so many cries of agony—a person would be able to walk away, turn her back, and the need wouldn’t be there anymore.

Right?

It never worked that way for me.

The urge just grew and grew until it was too much to handle.

There may not be a wish to die inside me anymore, that might’ve gone away, but a different desire rose up. I wanted to cake the streets in red. I wanted to put terror in the Normals’ hearts, inflict them with some of the quaking we woke with. I wanted them to feel what it was like to have the power against them.

But I couldn’t do any of that.

Or at least, it wasn’t time.

“Bren.”

The sounds around me permeated my mind, and I turned toward the voice amid the yells, laughter, shrieks, splashing, and glasses being tapped together.

Right. I was at a pool party.

No wonder I was feeling all murderous.

Who wouldn’t be?

“Bren!”

A lot had changed in the ten weeks since a friend was assaulted, and particularly in the last month. A lot. One of those changes was heading toward me. Tabatha Sweets. One of the most popular girls in our school, one that used to fear me, and here she was. Coming up to me. Calling my name. Acting like we were buddy-buddy, which we actually had become. Hence the not-fearing me part.

She still should have.

She came to stand right in front of me. She wasn’t blocking my sun because I’d been holed up in the corner of the backyard, lying down behind the grill, because let’s face it, I wasn’t the socialite here. I was here for very specific reasons: this pool party was at the Shaws’ house.

Cross Shaw was my boyfriend.

Taz Shaw was my friend. She was also Cross’ sister.

And the other two guys in our crew wanted to hang out. Zellman and Jordan.

So we were here.

I was here.

Unwillingly.

And daydreaming about violence.

Go figure.

I sat up, looped my arms over my knees, and sighed. “What’s up, Tabatha?”

“What are you doing back here?”

Her voice was a little snippy with frustration, but also confusion.

Tentative was the best way to describe our relationship—and I’m being extremely loose with those words to describe whatever I had with Tabatha and her minions. You can blame all the hours I had to serve on their charity committee, which was renamed their ‘event’ committee as part of my community service. Stabbing our old principal had ended with me sort of having other girlfriends besides Taz.

I wasn’t sure how that had worked out.

A couple had been after Cross, and I knew a couple still held a torch. As for Tabatha, she and Jordan were now a couple couple.

Yeah. I was surprised at how fast that happened too.

They went from one official date to being a couple, and now they were almost the lovey-dovey type of coupledom.

Anyway, right now, my crewmate’s girlfriend who was also somewhat a friend of mine (depending on the day and my mood, to be honest) stood over me. She was staring me down, hands on her hips.

I couldn’t lie, though. The urge to pull my knife out, just to hold it and know it would make Tabatha uneasy, was strong. But I didn’t. I’d grown over the last year. See? Counseling and community service could rehabilitate us lower criminal beings.

“Where are the guys?” I ignored her question. Did she not know me by now?

Pushing up to my feet, I didn’t wait for her to respond.

I took stock myself.

Zellman was on a back lounger, his on/off woman (Sunday) on his lap. Monica (one of the girls still holding a torch for my guy) was next to them, sitting on some other guy’s lap (I think a baseball player).

Jordan was just coming out of the house.

He saw me staring at him and paused, beer in hand. He raised his eyebrows in question, but I shook my head.

I didn’t need him for anything.

He kept moving, going to sit in another lounger by Z. And I knew where the fourth member of our crew was.

Jordan. Zellman. Cross. Me.

We were Wolf Crew, the smallest crew in the Roussou crew system, but also the most dangerous one.

There were other crews. Larger ones like the Ryerson Crew, or the Frisco Crew, which had popped up over the last semester. They were our neighboring town, and their high school had burned down. The town was too small to get enough funds to build a new one in time for their winter semester, so they were being bused to us. Well, half of them were. A few went to Fallen Crest Academy, and a good third went to Fallen Crest Public School, but the rest came to us. Frisco, Fallen Crest, and Roussou formed a weird triangle a bit inland in California, so those were the options.

We’d heard the Frisco students who went to the Academy shit their pants at how rich and fancy everything was. Most people in Frisco were poor like us. The Academy was for the rich. There were exceptions, but it’s what it was.

A few of their girls had tried to follow Tabatha around. She only took in two of them, literally flicking the others away with her hand.

I guess that’s what popular girls did? I didn’t know.

All this is just to say: I’m not like them.

I’m not like Frisco. I’m not like a Fallen Crusty, and I’m not even like a Normal (our term for those who aren’t in crews at Roussou). The ones I’m like? My crew. Zellman. Jordan. Cross. That’s it.

And seeing Jordan laughing so easily with that sporty guy, I felt a twitch in my chest.

I didn’t know what it was—jealousy, anger, or maybe I was just hungry. But the fact that I’d felt that twitch was enough for me. If I did emotions, it was never a good result, so I was gonna bounce.

“Oh, no, no, no.”

I began to move around Tabatha, but she blocked me.

Her eyes flashed in determination, and she pressed her lips together. “I recognize that look on your face. You’re going to ditch.” She shook her head. “You can’t ditch.”

“I don’t care.” I started off again.

She blocked me again, flipping her hair as she did. The movement was enough to draw attention, and conversations around us started to wane.

I gritted my teeth.

Tabatha was in my face, and I hated when anyone was in my face, and I was two seconds away from—

“Sweets.” The door opened again. Taz stepped out, a hand on her bikini-clad hip, dressed just the way Tabatha was. “Back away from Bren.”

Tabatha started to turn, laughing.

Taz wasn’t joking. She nodded at me. “She’s two seconds from putting hands on you.” She scanned the backyard. “Not a great situation to be in right now, if you get my drift.”

There were phones out. Things didn’t stay secret anymore, not since the Friscians came to town. And there was another development rumored as well, one that had most people seeing stars and Hollywood signs, but I can’t even get into that now. I’d been given a heads-up and knew it was going to be a pain in my ass.

“You’re close to losing it?” Tabatha asked quietly, easing back a step.

This was her redeeming quality. Sometimes she was clueless, but other times, she had learned to give me space. She backed down now, an apology flashing in her eyes.

I could move my jaw again. It wasn’t encased in cement. “I don’t like being cornered.”

Review – Crew Princess by Tijan

Crew Princess (Crew Series Book 2)

Crew Princess; Crew Series #2 (Series)
by Tijan (Author)

This review is from: August 15, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥

Tijan’s books are never like any other author I read. They always draw me into worlds I never even contemplate and they always make me think about them long after I’ve finished reading them.

Princess Crew is a book I’d consider that falls just a smidge outside of my typical wheelhouse, but also still just enough inside to have kept my interest the entire way through. It is not your typical love story, not by any trope that is contained in the romance genre. Crew is hard to explain unless you read it, because I hate comparing it a gang or mafia, but those are the best generalizations I can come up with. There is no hero or heroine falling in love in this second book because there is already a love story in progress, a very powerful story about two young lovers whom have already fallen in love in the first book, this is a continuation of that story along with their friends and loved ones. That along with the underlying suspense, danger, and mystery of what transpires makes for an plot.

We find Bren and Cross entering their final months of high school. Bren is basically resisting the fact that things are coming to an end, while at the same time things are still progressing forward with crew because life never stops rolling ahead.

What does that mean exactly?

With the end of high school, deep down she knows that Cross, Zellman, and Jordan, the other members of the Wolf Crew, will be heading on to college, where as she will be staying in Roussou. She hasn’t made any plans for the future as she doesn’t handle change at all and because of that has decided to basically bury her head in the sand over the fact that chance is coming. Perhaps if she avoids it it will never arrive, right?

But first, she has to survive; the bonfire, prom, and lastly graduation.
