Review- Smut University by Kahlen Aymes

5 out of 5 stars

I’m used to Kahlen’s absolutely amazing writing. Im used to a long novel that owns my heart and soul. She still has my favorite book of all time. I am however, not used to a quick HOT AS HECK read. She did it like a boss. I love how she branched out there and tried something different, and absolutely slayed it.

This book had me looking over my shoulder making sure no one behind me saw the naughtiness I was reading. I really don’t care,but I don’t think my son would want to see that. Lol. I’m not going to detail anything because it would give away the story. Only thing I will say is put the hottest Male romance author who is also a professor of writing sex in stories and an aspiring romance student that is super talented…. enough to bring the mighty professor to his knees! I can’t wait for more. What an amazing new series Kahlen has started.

Welcome to SMUT UNIVERSITY!

The Art of Sex… In Writing.

The name alone would have made it the most sought-after writing course at Columbia, but it didn’t hurt that the professor was smoking hot!

Addison Tomms was an aspiring romance novelist and senior Creative Writing Major at the prestigious Ivy League university. The class was packed and judging by the tongues wagging and the obvious swooning by the male and female student body alike, she figured she was one, in maybe a hundred, serious writing students in the auditorium.

Addy knew Dr. Jackson Michaels was a New York Times bestseller many times over, and secretly, she devoured his books. His love scenes set the pages, and her body, on fire. It was no secret that the associate professor teaching the course was sexy… but was he as really as sexy as his words?

Addison had her answer on the very first day of class when the handsome Dr. Michaels taunted and teased his students with what the class actually entailed; all watching with mouths agape. He was a thousand percent more stunning in person than the television entertainment interviews she’d seen or any of the photos that she and her best friend, Michelle, had spent hours searching online.

Something stirred deep inside her when his sensual eyes raked over her because she’d been the only one brave enough to answer his first question. Her reaction was physical; his gaze felt as if he’d actually touched her, and she was more and more intrigued.

Addy knew this man would rock her world… but it wouldn’t just be between the pages.

SMUT UNIVERSITY (Part One) Excerpt

His eyes locked with mine. “Miss Tomms,” he said my name without asking who I was. A shiver ran through me that he remembered; like it foreshadowed some earth-shattering scene about to come. Those intense eyes framed by incredibly dark lashes. The strong jaw. The broad, muscular shoulders. God, that face. That f*cking sex hair. Up close it was criminal how incredibly sexy he was. He was utterly stunning.

My breath left me in a soft rush, and I sucked in another so I could speak. “Dr. Michaels,” I acknowledged with a small nod.

He had a file box in front of him that held the graded papers separated alphabetically by dividers. He reached in and slowly pulled mine out. Maybe this weird tradition he had of insisting the first assignment was printed out was his way to bring his students face-to face in order to press upon us just how intimidating he actually was. And, he was.

There was admiration in his eyes as they roamed over my face and hair, lingering on my mouth. I couldn’t help looking at his. His lips were as perfect as the rest of him, the lower one full and begging to be bitten. I cleared my throat. I felt like helpless prey; paralyzed by a mixture of fear and adulation; the venom of his incredible eyes and his scent. Whether it was his will to eat me alive or seduce me, it was certain that I would succumb to either in that moment. My heart thrummed inside my chest, blood rushing in my ears, wetness pooling between my legs. Oh, God, my legs went weak and I struggled to stand.

His long fingers bent the stack of stapled paper so that the grade was hidden from view when he held it out to me. I held the book bag to me with one arm and reached for the document with the other hand.

He pulled it back for a second, denying it to me, his brilliant eyes still burning, but now teasing into mine. I cocked one eyebrow in question and a hint of a smile graced his luscious mouth. “I’d like to see you in my office, tomorrow. I have office hours from four to six. Does that work?”

My mind was racing; wondering at the reason behind his request at the same time as my heart fell into the pit of my stomach. Did I totally screw up the assignment? I felt like I was about to throw up and wished the earth would open up and swallow me.

He cleared his throat. “Miss Tomms? Does that work for you?”

“Ummm,” I stammered. “Yes, professor. See you then.”

“Excellent.” He handed me the paper, his eyes still not breaking contact. I felt like I was falling into the deepest end of the ocean, drowning and only he could save me. I was in trouble.

“Yes, sir.”

My heart felt as if it would fly from my aching chest as I took the paper and turned, concentrating on walking without rushing to the far left of the room, taking the side stairs up to the marble lobby and then walking out of the building. I wanted to look at the grade as I clutched the still folded assignment in my hand, but something inside me hesitated. My heart felt like it would explode as I opened the folded pages and then, in astonishment flipped through the rest. There was no grade. No editorial mark-ups. Nothing.

“What the f*ck?” I exclaimed.

Review- Broken Silence by Felice Stevens

6 stars!!!

Felice has struck yet again with a book that will grip your heart and soul and take you on the ride of your life. In true Felice fashion, we have broken characters who have so much baggage that they feel helpless for love.

You will experience all the feels and emotions. With heartbreaking life stories, two broken souls come together and mend each other completely. Yes, I’m being vague but I refuse to give away a single detail so that you can experience this masterpiece with eyes wide open.

This book was simply unputdownable! Once you pick it up, there is no parting with it until the end. Even then you will crave more because you don’t want it to ever end. I give this book 6 stars, but its worthy of much more! Well done Felice, and thank you for continuing to touch my heart every single time!


Title: Broken Silence (Rock Bottom #1)

Author: Felice Stevens

Genre: MM Romance

Release Date: May 15, 2019

Hosted by:Buoni Amici Press, LLC.

Book Description:

Justin Molina has secrets. He’s served his time but remains a prisoner of his past, unable to forgive himself for failing his family when they needed him most. Justin’s grief is overwhelming, but he keeps silent and focuses on his goals. About to graduate college, he tries to keep his head above water—no matter how many times life keeps knocking him down. When he’s forced to register for a poetry-writing class, Justin discovers putting words to his feelings might be exactly what his fractured heart needs to heal. Or is it the older professor with the bow ties and gentle smile who gives him a chance when no one else will?

Professor Foster Faraday Harding is a broken man. His divorce is final, and he’s reverted back to the safety of his books. Even his poetry no longer brings him joy; he’s sleepwalking through life. The raw emotion of Justin’s poetry awakens Foster to desires he thought long buried in the ashes of his marriage. When he discovers Justin is struggling financially, Foster offers him a solution that benefits both of them. Soon it’s Foster who’s struggling with emotions he can’t understand: Justin is his student. And a man. One crazy night years earlier doesn’t mean anything. Foster is straight.

After months of denying the growing attraction between them, an unexpected kiss changes everything. Justin and Foster are no longer only professor and student—they’ve become lovers, but the strain of hiding their relationship increases with each passing day. Words have the power not only to hurt but to heal the greatest pain. If Foster and Justin listen to what their hearts are saying, they might break through their silence and live their own love poems—together.

Review- Undefeated by Helen Hardt

6 out of 5 stars

You know. I really can’t say enough about anything Helen Hardt writes. I don’t know why I’m surprised every single time that I pick up a book by her,I can’t put it down. I damn sure don’t like coming to the end of one of her series, but never underestimate Helen.I have a feeling we will see our beloved characters once again.

For her first time at paranormal, I’d say Helen sure tackled it like it’s the genre she writes everyday. This series has been absolutely amazing. I won’t say goodbye. Now that I know Lauren Rowe has done the audiobooks for the entire series, I’m now looking forward to listening to it for a whole new ride. I highly recommend you do the same because with Helen’s writing and Lauren’s narration, this is a must read and listen!!!!

The Careless Boyfriend new cover

img_1366-1

Gray Bowie broke the bro code: he fell in love with his best friend’s girlfriend.

For years, he hid his feelings…until one terrible night, it all came to a head.

Since her life blew up in high school, Knox Holliday has spent her time honing her skills as a couture wedding dress designer. But, just weeks before her debut, a freak accident wipes out her collection. The culprit: her ex’s former best friend, Gray Bowie.

Gray does everything he can to get her career back on track. As they work together, they find forgiveness and start to stitch together something that looks a lot like love. But, at the very moment they realize they have a chance for something real, her ex comes back to town, bringing opportunities Gray can’t provide.

This time, Gray’s not going to step aside, so he can only hope Knox will hold onto his heart.

She’s his dream, but will he be hers?

img_0285-9

“Actually, you know what I want, what I really, really want? I want to drive. No destination. Just…drive. You and me, in the truck.”

“Highway or four-wheelin’?”

“You did not just ask me that question.” Her smile lit up the cab, and he wanted to bathe in it, read by it, live inside its heat.

Just ahead was a turn-out that headed across the meadow and right to the base of the mountain. He took it. She reached for the radio, flicked it on, and played around until she found a song she liked.

Rolling down her window, she stuck her arm outside and danced along with the country tune. It threw him back to high school, when they’d drive aimlessly, blasting tunes. When he’d loved her, wanted her, but couldn’t have her.

Only this time he could have her. And, damn, if that didn’t make his blood hot.

The truck lurched, then bounced along the rutted road. At the base of the mountain, he shot her a questioning look, and she nodded, a gleam in her eyes. So, he floored it, clots of dirt pinging against the truck, the growl of the engine overpowering the radio.

She turned up the volume, singing along with the country tune. The narrow road didn’t afford him a chance to watch her. He wanted to see her skirt ride up, exposing more of her tights-covered thighs, her hair flying in the chilly breeze. Wanted to get his hands and mouth on her.

At the first turn-out, he pulled off, drove right up to the edge and killed the lights. Jackson Hole spread out before them, clusters of light indicating the small towns spread out within the basin.

Just as the song ended, another one came on. “Oh, I love this one. Come on.” She threw open the door and started dancing. He cut the engine but kept the radio on and, when she drifted out of sight, he got out of the truck. Knox was rocking out, her hips swaying, arms waving, completely letting loose. Every now and then she’d double over, letting the tips of her hair brush the ground, then fling back up, a cascade of shimmering beauty. Her ass shook, and he wanted to clutch it, but if he did that, she’d stop dancing and singing, and that wouldn’t do.

He lowered the back of the truck and leapt onto it, sitting on the edge to watch her dance in the moonlight.

She held her arms out to him. “Dance with me.”

Not a chance would he miss the show.

“Come on, sexy pants.” With a hand on her stomach, she rocked her hips slowly as she got low to the ground then climbed back up. She cupped her hand, fingers waving him over. “Get over here.”

He shook his head, joy filling his body to overflowing. She was the sexiest woman he’d ever seen.

The song ended, and the next one was slower. A ballad. She sashayed over to the truck, hitching a foot onto the bed and climbing on. Eyes on him, teeth biting into that plump lower lip, she made her way over to him, crooking a finger. She didn’t know what all that untamed hair did to him. Didn’t know that her playful smile made his heart pound furiously.

Review – The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros

FB-The Last Letter

The Last Letter by Rebecca Yarros

My rating: 6 of 5 stars



”You don’t really value something until you’ve lost it.”

OH MY WOW!!! OH MY FEELS! Oh my tears! So many tissues from tears of the heart, tears from ugly crying, tears from Rebecca Yarros’ THE LAST LETTER. Tears still fresh and still real from one of the realest stories I’ve met. A story that still dances in my dreams. The best and most moving military romance I’ve ever met. A heartbreaker in the best of ways. The Last Letter took me on the biggest emotional journey, bringing words like honor, sacrifice, duty, and courage—the creed of my soldier and all soldiers—to life. I LOVED this romance and emotional journey so much!

As both a military wife and mama, I felt a deep and indescribable connection to these characters and this story, a military romance with one of the best heroes and heroines ever written. A story where I fell hard in love with the hero, Beckett, and heroine, Ella. A story of a hero and heroine saving each other. A story so raw and real. A story that stripped me bare where I was broken and bleeding, nearly brought me to my knees.

”I would take on armies for her, kill for her, or die for her.”

My heart was ripped out of my chest—yet my soul swooned in a romance that touched every part of me. The pain became almost unbearable to read at times, feeling all too real, but that pain brought immeasurable pleasure too. I caught myself smiling through the tears, and holding my breath again and again. I was DESTROYED … DECIMATED! I cried my way through this book as my heart both shattered and soared. I felt every word. I FELT EVERYTHING!


He used both hands to hold my head and kissed me until I couldn’t remember my own name—only that I belonged to him.

The writing? It’s off-the-charts powerful. I was so in awe with this author’s superb storytelling. Rebecca Yarros has set the bar so high for military romance that you’d be hard-pressed to find another writer who gives you a bird’s eye view of the battlefield, the aftermath of war, the employment of courage and sacrifice, the fragility of friends and family, and what it truly means to love a soldier. Yarros pulls out all the emotional stops—delivering big time in a DEVASTATINGLY BEAUTIFUL BOOK that shows the bravery among the broken.

”In case no one ever told you—you’re worthy. Of love. Of family. Of home.”

ACHINGLY EMOTIONAL and EXQUISITELY RAW, The Last Letter is a rip-open-your-heart roller coaster of a romance with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. An epic story of love and loss with substance and soul. TRULY EXTRAORDINARY. Unequivocally beautiful. Unparalleled. Unforgettable. Unlike anything I’ve ever read. I’ve never met a more stunning and soulful military romance.

”Just be my happy, and let me be yours.”

There aren’t enough stars in the universe for this heartfelt and soul-striking story. Prepare to be blown away by this tear-jerker of a tale told in passionate and poignant love letters. The Last Letter is THE best military romance and Rebecca Yarros’ best book yet!!! A heartbreakingly beautiful book that I will forever feel. I just want to read it and feel it again and again.

A must-read, top 2019, and lifetime romance!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 soul-striking stars but worth all the stars in the universe

Beckett,

If you’re reading this, well, you know the last-letter drill. You made it. I didn’t. Get off the guilt train, because I know if there was any chance you could have saved me, you would have.

I need one thing from you: get out of the army and get to Telluride.

My little sister Ella’s raising the twins alone. She’s too independent and won’t accept help easily, but she has lost our grandmother, our parents, and now me. It’s too much for anyone to endure. It’s not fair.

And here’s the kicker: there’s something else you don’t know that’s tearing her family apart. She’s going to need help.

So if I’m gone, that means I can’t be there for Ella. I can’t help them through this. But you can. So I’m begging you, as my best friend, go take care of my sister, my family.

Please don’t make her go through it alone.

Ryan

Review – How About No by Lani Lynn Vale

5 out of 5 stars

I love Lani Lynn Vale books. They are always a quick read that draw you in and keep your attention. Add the fact that this is a second chance romance and I’m beyond sold. That’s my absolute favorite of all time!

Be prepared to go through the ups and the downs that a couple torn apart by stupidity, gets molded back together through the trauma. This is an absolute page turner. You’ll be reading the the words “the end” before you know it because you won’t put it down!

HOW ABOUT NO

BEAR BOTTOM MC SERIES – Book

By Lani Lynn Vale

Release Day 11/6

Wade had everything he could ever want in life…then he lost it.

Now, his life—his forever girl—is living in a house he built for her while he’s struggling to move on and find meaning where there isn’t any to be found.

Landry Hill was his girl. his everything. His high school sweetheart. His first kiss. His first and only love. His old lady and wife

Then one day he does something monumentally stupid. And she walks away knowing she’ll never come back.

Fast forward five years, and he’s still just as in love with her now as he was when she left. The only problem is that she’s moved on with her life, found a new man, and seemingly forgotten him. Then there’s Wade—stuck in the same awful place where she abandoned him. The only thing he has left is his job as a police office and the Bear Bottom MC.

Just when they both think things can’t get any worse, life kicks them both in the teeth, and Landry finds out really quick that the only person she can depend on is the one that let her walk away.

With understanding comes a deal. One that Landry has no hope of ever breaking free from, and one Wade will do everything in his power to make a reality.

But one thing is still certain. The force that split them apart is still out there. And there’s no hope of escaping fate.

EXCERPT

“No, Wade,” I snarled. “It’s not just that easy.”

He frowned. “What are you talking about? I realize that it’s tough, and it’s going to hurt, but baby, this is your sister! Your sister is your family. Your blood. You can’t just leave her in need.”

That was when I felt everything inside of me still.

“The first time I donated bone marrow to my sister, I was a toddler. Barely the age of two and a half,” I said, almost in a whisper. “The second time, I was four. The third? Seven. Do you see a pattern, Sergeant?

Wade frowned and tilted his head to the side, confusion spreading over his face.

“My parents had me to be their donor baby,” I whispered. “They never wanted me. I was never allowed to be a child. I was a useful object to them.”

Wade looked startled. “What do you mean by not being able to be a child?”

I laughed maniacally.

“I’m saying that I was bred to be their baby’s saving grace,” I hissed. “And I’m not doing it anymore. My sister is an asshole. My father’s a conniving bastard, and my mother is the biggest bitch known to man. Don’t you think that there’s a reason that I’ve never spoken of them?”

He looked at me like I was crazy. “Honey, you told me that you had a falling out. But this is your sister.”

I looked over at where my sister was sitting out on the front porch, silently crying her big, fat crocodile tears.

She’d always been good at them.

There was a time when I was younger that all she had to do was get that look on her face, and I’d be scared shitless.

Because if Lina wasn’t happy, nobody was happy, least of all me.

There was always going to be hell to pay if a single tear fell down Lina’s perfect cheek.

Lina also looked like a little China doll. She had perfect blonde curls, soft, milky white skin, blue eyes the color of a crayon, and she was tiny.

I, on the other hand, was none of those things but short.

I had brown hair to her blonde, brown eyes to her blue, freckled skin to her perfect complexion, and when I tried hard, I was also skinny.

Except, lately, I had been drinking beer and having the time of my life—living it like I’d always wanted to live it.

“I won’t do it,” I refused again, sounding petulant now.

I knew he didn’t understand.

Deep down, Wade was a really good man.

He’d experienced a lot in his life. He was a cop and had seen some very bad things.

But, what he did not have, was a bad family.

His family was awesome. His mom was the best mother in the whole world, and his dad was the kind of father I’d only ever dreamed of having when I was younger.

God, even his brother was the best.

He had no clue what it was like to hate your family like I did.

Hell, the only reason he hadn’t heard of them sooner was because my sister hadn’t gotten sick enough to need me.

Had she, Wade would’ve learned the truth about who my family was a hell of a lot quicker.

“I’m going to tell her that you’re thinking about it, and we can discuss it more later, okay?” Wade offered. “I don’t want you to make any hasty decisions because you’re overreacting.”

When you begin and end a book in tears, you know it’s one that spoke to your soul. More of You by AL Jackson spoke to my soul. Sang to my soul. Shattered my soul. Slayed my soul. This story was my soul. So STUNNING! I LOVED IT!!! Second chance romances are my weakness, and More of You was my KRYPTONITE. PURE ROMANCE GOLD.



”You are beauty looking back at me.”

More of You is so much more than a romance. MORE of EVERYTHING. It’s poetry—dreamy lyrics that come to life. It’s a story of regret and retribution, sacrifice and selflessness, and faith and forgiveness. It’s an emotional journey of fated friends and forever soulmates who lost their way. It’s a stunning, suspenseful, and soulful second-chance romance that grabbed me from the first page and never let go. I never let go.

”You took my heart when you left.”

“And I left mine with you.”

This is the story of two fractured and fated soulmates who became lost along the way until a collision of past and present brings them together. Jace and Faith. Beauty and Beast. So perfect together. So meant to be. Faith is an old soul who has lived a thousand years, so gorgeous and so giving, a beacon of light in the dark. Jace, I fell for this broken and big-hearted man right away, a beautiful beast with a vulnerable side that shows as he finds his light, his Beauty. I felt the forever love of Faith and Jace. I felt the pain of these characters as if it were mine. A broken hero and heroine that broke me yet melted me. Again and again.

I’d been lost for years. And with her in my arms? The only thing I could think was that I’d been found. Rescued.

The element of suspense fused with the feel-worthy writing makes this story a force to be reckoned with—UNFLINCHING and UNSTOPPABLE. You’ll hang off the emotional edge. This tender and thrilling tale tears your heart wide open and shakes every emotion out of you until you’re exploding. An EMOTIONAL EXPLOSION. Your heart will shatter into a million pieces and slowly be pieced back together again—maybe a few times. You can’t help but be ALL IN. More of You makes you feel every word in a story that’s everything you’d want in a romance. Heady. Hypnotizing. Heartfelt.

”What do you see in me?”

“Everything.”

There’s beauty bound to the words AL Jackson pens to life, the kind that makes you take deep breaths and tear up with not just the sad words but all the words. Words that take my breath away. Words that hold all the emotion. So powerful. So passionate. So poignant. I get all teary-eyed when AL Jackson’s soul-clenching words fuse with my heart and soul; I can’t help myself. I read her words with tears of sorrow and swoon. Poetry on pages with the power to touch every emotion. Oh did More of You touch me so much!

”You’re ruining me. Ruining every single thing I’d forced myself into believing.”

“You ruined me a long time ago.”

More of You is so beautiful, so broken, so breathtaking, and so brilliantly told. This book broke me in the best and most beautiful of ways. Toward the end, I felt each word through the tears. Words that stole my soul, stomping on it with each breath My heart bled for this book. My heart beat out of my chest. My heart was hit so hard, it spun right into my soul. Sweetness and sorrow. A story that shattered me, made me swoon and swept me away into its world. A.L. Jackson has written another stunning and soul-shattering romance that shoots sparks straight through the heart. More of You, with its meaningful and memorable characters, is a story that stays with the heart and soul long after the last page. Sheer brilliance from beginning to end. So heartbreakingly beautiful. So EVERYTHING.

”I think I’ve loved you since the day I met you.”

Another TOP 2018 & LIFETIME READ from the amazing AL Jackson!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 but worth all the beauty and beast stars

My daddy warned me never to fall for a boy like Jace Jacobs . . . 

The second I saw him walk through the door, I knew he was trouble.

A gorgeous rebel with a bad attitude and a huge chip on his shoulder.

My heart warned me. I didn’t listen. I saw something protective and good beneath the fierce, tough exterior.

I fell hard and fast.

He promised we’d be together forever, and then left me with a broken heart.

Now, ten years later, Jace Jacobs is standing at my door.

Sexier than he’s ever been.

Provocative and commanding.

Successful and powerful.

The man I always knew he would become.

But I promised myself I’d never lose my heart to him again.

Even time couldn’t dim our chemistry. One glance of his intense eyes, and I become weak. One brush of his hand, and he brings me to my knees.

Little do I know, Jace holds the key to everything I’ve lost and everything that threatens my future.

Now he will either save me, or he will break me all over again . . .

More of You – a Confessions of the Heart second-chance, stand-alone romance

Review – Timid by Devney Perry

Timid by Devney Perry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just love a good small town romance! Devney Perry continues to wow me with her words and is quickly becoming a top go-to author. From the swoon-filled sweet sigh to the shrieking oh my, Devney Perry amps up the second super star in her Lark Cove series, Timid, with the most delicious twists that turn this sweet small town romance into one riveting roller coaster. This friends-to-lovers story bursts with love and light—a slow burn of swoon and soul. This book buzzes with beauty, hums with heart, and sings with soul. INCREDIBLE!

”You were my risk.”

It was so wonderful to return to Lark Cove! Ahhh . . . I could almost breathe in the fresh air as I inhaled Timid, a tale painted with incredible detail. Set in beautiful lakeside Montana, the story of a beautiful and beguiling heroine, a broken and breathtakingly handsome hero, a combustible connection, a forever friendship, and the force of fate that finally forges these soulmates together is SIMPLY STUNNING.

”I don’t know how to love you.”

I was ENTHRALLED with these charming characters with so much heart. I felt this simmering story of a broken hero, Jackson, and the beautifully-hearted heroine, Willa, the light to his dark who brings him back to life. This story slow burns to perfection.

”I’m standing up for you. I’ll fight for you.”

Like Tattered, Timid is IRRESISTIBLY CHARMING, a sweet small town romance that tears at the heartstrings and never lets go. It’s SWEET. It’s SMOLDERING. It’s STIRRING. It’s SUSPENSEFUL. It’s SPECIAL. The writing is pure ‘melt-your-heart’ MAGIC. SO HEARTWARMING! Timid embedded itself into my heart, and I LOVED every bit of this beauty!

”It’s always been you.”

A MUST-MEET small town romance!

💋💋💋💋💋 simmering and soulful kisses

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

Review – Crew by Tijan

CREW FINAL COVER EBOOK

Crew by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had no idea what to expect or what I’d get with Tijan’s latest sensation, Crew. The thing is that you don’t know what you’ll get when Tijan brings books to life as each one is daringly different. I like the mystery of the unknown. So . . . the blurb? I didn’t even read it. I dove into this book blindly so I could just feel the words. Oh did I feel! Crew hit like a sucker punch—fast, fierce, and furious! Crew ’s words were bombs that made my emotions explode. Dark. Dangerous. Divine.

One line was all it took. One line. The first line. It broke me. I stared at it for minutes and could not stop repeating it in my head. Eight words. Eight words devoured me, dissected me, detonated me. I knew then that the rest of this tale would tear me apart and that it did. Crew broke me in the best way! I LOVED IT!

I met his mouth with mine, and I felt like I was drowning.

A fierce friends-to-lovers YA romance and dark jewel of a read, Crew shines and shatters with cutthroat characters and a spellbinding storyline that’s gritty, edgy, and emotionally rich. Brace yourself, as you’ll fall hard in love with the beautiful and broken heroine—the only female Crew member—who defines boldness and bravery. The quiet but strong and stunning hero will melt your heart too. You’ll love the slow burn of these best friends and Crew members who morph into more. I MELTED for this hero and heroine! I felt so close to these Crew characters. Tijan made me part of the Crew. Or at least it felt that way.

”Your crew is aptly named. You’re beautiful to look at, but lethal.”

I couldn’t stop devouring this addicting read! Crew is DARINGLY DIFFERENT. A darkly entrancing and emotionally explosive page-turner you won’t be able to put down. It pushes you to the edge where you want to just free fall with the words. Full of hold-your-breath moments and edge-of-your seat thrills, this tale is A HEADY HIT WITH AN EMOTIONAL EDGE that’s explosive and enticing. Crew is so bold and badass! A bit dark, a bit dangerous, and ALL THE DELICIOUS FEELS! Crew is an adventure that I felt with my heart. I felt this story from the very first line and never stopped feeling. INCREDIBLE! I NEED MORE!!!

”It’s been you. It’s been goddamn you all my life.”

💋💋💋💋💋 fierce, feral, and feel-worthy kisses

To survive where I live, you have two options.

You can be a Normal–a cheerleader, jock, member of the debate team, or on the yearbook committee. You pretend everything is normal.

Or you can be crew.
You insult us? We hurt you.
You hurt us? We really hurt you.
And if you screw with us, we will end you.

My name is Bren.
I’m the only female in the Wolf Crew–the best, fiercest, and most dangerous crew there is–and we have a rule: There’s no falling in love.

Well… too late.

Review + Excerpt – Respect by Jay Crownover

Respect cover

Respect by Jay Crownover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Light is easy to love. Show me your darkness.~ R. Queen

I love books bathed in darkness with a sliver of light, as they dig deeply into the depths of hell but somehow find a bit of heaven. Jay Crownover is a mix master of black, shadowy stories that still shine like gold. This master storyteller makes you love the ‘baddest’ of bad boys in her powerful series called The Point and The Breaking Point where the men who sway from criminals to heroes, the boyfriends that mothers would hide from if you brought them home, the boys you should probably run from too. But you can’t help but adore these saints and sinners that snag your heart.

Respect is the story of a broken-hearted but brave princess who has to flee the corrupt kingdom because she thinks the big, broken and bold prince doesn’t see her beyond a young friend. Oh how wrong this heroine is; the powerful prince sees her but does not want to corrupt her. Neither realize the power of fate. Fate has other plans and is the real ruler of this kingdom.

Time was supposed to heal all wounds, but mine felt like it was still wide open and bleeding all over the place.

Scorching, spine-tingling, and oh-so strong, Respect is the perfect fusion of light and dark, heaven and hell, and sin and salvation. Gritty with bits of glam. Dark with bits of light. Dangerous and daring. Respect is a HEADY HIGH! I was ADDICTED to Karsen and Bookers’ journey that is as emotional as it is explosive. I LOVED being back at the Point! I can’t help but become fully vested in these characters—the baddest and bravest boys with the biggest hearts and the bold heroines who stand beside them. From Bax to Booker and Dovie to Karsen, I’ve fallen for every one of the heroes and anti-heroes of the Point.

”Don’t regret this later, Karsen. If you do, it might kill me.”

Fire-hot, formidable, and full of feels, Respect is a fresh spin on romance. Jay Crownover always brings a uniqueness to her words that I’ve called ‘Crownover Crack’ since meeting Rule years ago. From Better When He’s Bad to Respect, The Point and The Breaking Point series are perfectly imperfect stories that slay with strength and soul. Respect is the perfect farewell. A HIGH-OCTANE, HEART-POUNDING ROMANCE that delivers all the way.

”The only person whose touch I ever needed was yours.”

What a powerful finish to a powerful and poignant series! I so don’t want this series to be over. Jay Crownover rocked all of these brilliant bad boy books out of the park! The addicting anti-heroes—villains fused with victors—of the Point will mark your soul, grab your heart, and stay with you forever. Bad has never been so good!!!

It was a place that was so bad, so dark, so lost in crime and violence it didn’t have a name…we simply called it the Point. It was the ending point, the breaking point, the point of no return…it was simply a place where only the strong survived and anyone else was bound to die trying.

A MUST-MEET ROMANCE & SERIES!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-racing ‘all the respect’ stars

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.  

Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.  

He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.

He warned her over and over that he wasn’t the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she’d given her heart so completely to both.

She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.  

Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind.  She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.  

While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn’t feel like surrender… but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It’s a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.    

She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She’d much rather go out and build her own.

~Karsen~

I had no plans to leave the Point. It was ugly, mean, hard, and unforgiving, but these streets were home and I couldn’t imagine being happy anywhere else. This place had long since made my hands and the edges of my soul dirty. It was something I would be hard-pressed to hide should I go anywhere else. I’d have to spend my days trying to camouflage the filth I was so familiar with. Here, no one looked twice at the pretty teenager with shadows in her eyes and blood on her hands. I was one of many.

I wasn’t interested in leaving behind my sister or her fiancé, Race. We were an odd, dysfunctional family, but we made it work.

I didn’t want to be too far away from my mother, who was living in a group home as she slowly, painfully tried to recover from her alcoholism and PTSD from an accident she caused that ended up taking the life of a young mother and her child.

But more than anything, I absolutely didn’t want to leave him.

I couldn’t imagine a day going by without catching a glimpse of Noah Booker. I mean, he was impossible to miss. Six-and-a-half-feet tall, body built like a professional athlete, dark and brooding with the prettiest gunmetal-gray eyes, he was the entirety of every one of my teenage fantasies. I barely noticed the jagged scar dividing one side of his face. White and raised, it cut one of his black eyebrows in half, slashed over a high cheekbone, and ended somewhere under the chiseled edge of his hard jaw. He never talked about it, but Race, Booker’s boss, let it slip that Booker got the scar when he was locked up. Or maybe it wasn’t as much of a slip-up as a thinly veiled warning. Race never kept it much of a secret that my infatuation with his massive, dangerous, ex-con enforcer made him extremely uncomfortable. He’d warned me over and over again that Booker wasn’t for me. And he’d made it clear to the man who broke knees and smashed heads for a living that he was to stay as far away from me as possible.

They called it puppy love. It wasn’t.

To me, it was a vicious kind of love, filled with teeth and claws that I could feel digging at my insides every single time someone patted me on the head and told me how young I was, how much life I had yet to live. This love was rabid, and I was tired of having it on a leash. I wanted to let it free, wanted to let it sink its razor-sharp fangs into the man who had awoken the primal need inside of me. It was only fair he felt the same kind of crushing bite and painful pressure around his heart that I did every single day.

I was solely focused on getting to Booker. It barely registered I was done with high school and had new doors opening all around me. I couldn’t care less about getting my hands on my diploma. A piece of paper with Karsen Carter written on it in pretty calligraphy meant exactly nothing to me. The only thing I was focused on was the fact I was finally old enough to make my own choices. And I’d always picked Booker. Over and over again he was my number one priority.
