Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
I believed I was entitled to all of it.
My legacy.

Jolie Chapman.
I thought I was entitled to her, too.
My love.

In a scandal that set our families against each other, I lost.
My legacy. My love.
Everything.

I was heir to a throne built on lies, my crown forged from corruption.
Stripped of everything I’d been raised to consider my birthright.
Including my princess—who wasn’t mine, after all.

I’ve spent the past decade rebuilding my life, on my own terms.
Money. Status. Wealth. Power.
They’ve been earned.
Now I’ve returned to Manhattan for redemption, too.

Jolie wasn’t supposed to be here.
… And I wasn’t supposed to care.

Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice—
Who am I kidding? I don’t believe in second chances anymore.

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 – A Girl Like Lilac by Victoria L. James

A Girl Like Lilac by Victoria L. James

My rating: 6 of 5 stars


Less worrying, more living.

Have you ever read a book that has moved you so much and means more than you can pen into words? I’m just a girl, crying into her kindle, mourning the end of a story I wanted to feel forever. Victoria L. James wrote such a stunning story of forever love that there are not enough words to express my love for A Girl Like Lilac. I was MESMERIZED—so UNEQUIVOCALLY MOVED—by A Girl Like Lilac., a story I LOVED so much! This tale took my breath. Took my soul. Took my heart. Took all of me. A Girl Like Lilac. is so broken and beautiful—I was BESOTTED with this book!

img_3175-2

Once I started this stunning story, I didn’t want to stop. I knew right away that this story was SPECIAL; A Girl Like Lilac is the kind of story that sticks, the soul-stirring type that stays long after the last page is turned. I knew this tale would hold my heart in its hands forever, and I would let it take my heart as its own because A Girl Like Lilac OWNED ME and MY HEART FROM THE START.

I was a Hunter by name, sure. But for Lilac Clarke, without even realising it, I’d become a protector at heart.

What an aspiring novel with an engaging voice, a powerful and poignant plot, and some sensational and soulful writing! A Girl Like Lilac paints a pretty picture where each emotion is a color, so bold, so beautiful, and so bright. This tale is flawlessly executed with characters that are caring, charismatic, and compelling. I adored this hero and heroine so much! Lilac is as beautiful and bold inside as she is outside. Toby is a knight in shingling armor, the definition of hero, as cute as he is kind. Lilac and Toby are both so beautiful and brave with hearts of gold. They melt together and are true soulmates. I felt their connection course through the pages, penetrating me everywhere. It felt like this hero and heroine lived a thousand lives together.

”I’m not worth that kind of trouble.”

“You’re worth a war, Lilac.”

As this story told its truths, bits of wisdom dispersed through the pages, I felt wiser. I found myself clapping for justice against injustice. I found myself high-fiving the strong hero and heroine in my head . . . so many times. I found myself crying for words that spun my soul around, nearly knocking my heart out of my chest, a heart that beat for every word of this beautifully broken book. I found every feel in a story that is EVERYTHING!

”It will always be you, Lilac.”

A HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL coming-of-age journey, A Girl Like Lilac sparks with magic, hugging the heart while singing to the soul. A Girl Like Lilac is one of the most EXQUISITE and EXTRAORDINARY love stories I’ve ever met! This story made me melt . . . made me break . . . made me think . . . made me feel. I cried tears of joy and tears of sorrow. A Girl Like Lilac made my HEART BLEED and my SOUL SOAR, and I can’t stop feeling this romance. This beauty in words will hug me for life.

”You look like a man who’s been to war.”

“You were worth every second of it.”

Somehow . . . some way . . . Bryan Adams’ Robin Hood lyrics played in my head while reading, so perfect, so perfect for this journey.

Oh you can’t tell me it’s not worth tryin’ for
I can’t help it there’s nothin’ I want more
Yeah, I would fight for you
I’d lie for you
Walk the wire for you, yeah, I’d die for you
You know it’s true
Everything I do

Oh, I do it for you

This is a top 2018 and lifetime read! A Girl Like Lilac is YA AT ITS BEST! All the amazing stars already! All the first and last kisses! All the things!

There’s a pleasure to being alive few of us notice, no matter how long we live.

💋💋💋💋💋💋 first and forever kisses

View all my reviews

The first time Toby Hunter got arrested for defending Lilac Clarke’s honour, he was only fifteen years old, but he’d loved her from behind his black-rimmed glasses for as long as he could remember.

With a desperate need to protect her from a distance, one arrest turned to two, two soon turning into three, and before Toby knew what was happening, the sleepy village of Southwold was turning against him for daring to stand up for a girl like Lilac.

Beautiful Lilac with her flowers in her hair, her camera in her hands, and her sweet, pink, sugary-lipped kisses.

They could hate him for loving her all they wanted. Toby was a boy who did what was right, not what was easy, and he was always going to grow to be the man willing to give her what she deserved.

Even if that meant losing Lilac forever.

Review – Rock Legend by Tara Leigh

5 out of 5 stars

Tara Leigh struck again with another home run read. I love second chance romance. Pair that with a rock star, and you’re in for one heck of a ride! Tara’s words suck you into another world as you feel like you’re riding this roller coaster ride of emotions! I would definitely recommend setting aside enough time to read the whole book because once you start, there’s no putting it down!

Landon had a rough past. With all that he went through as a child, it’s not surprising all the baggage he carries around. He’s that bad boy that you can’t help but love.

From book 1, I didn’t like Piper at all. She totally redeemed herself in this book though. The ups and downs she experiences with Landon really makes her deserving of a life of happiness.

This book is full of angst, heartbreak, tears, and scorching hot scenes. It’s a perfect read that you must read! You can read it without book 1 but I sincerely recommend reading book 1 at some point. Tara has once again proven why she is a must read author for me.

Fans of Kristen Callihan, L.J. Shen, and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I’m no Prince Charming.

Most people know me as the drummer for Nothing but Trouble. Depending who you ask, I’m also a playboy, a loner, the life of the party, a screw-up, or according to my fans, “The Sexiest Rock Star on the Planet.” Apparently, I’m a legend.

Am I surprised? Hell, no. It’s a reputation I’ve earned behind my drum kit and behind closed doors. No one thought foster kid Landon Cox would become famous. Infamous, maybe. Notorious, probably. But successful? Never. No one except Piper Hastings. But I had to make a choice: my woman or my career. I picked fame and fortune… and spent every damn day since pretending I don’t regret it.

Now fate’s dropped Piper back into my life. I want to believe it’s a second chance for me – for us. But while I can give her a few great nights, I can’t give Piper a future.

Because there’s a difference between a legend and a fairy tale…
Only one of them ends happily ever after.

Review – Rock King by Tara Leigh

5 out of 5 stars

Tara once again takes my expectations and smashes them to a million pieces. I knew this was going to be an amazing book, but it soared beyond what I ever expected. You will read this book thinking you’re reading a book by an author whose been at it for many years. It still blows me away that Tara is relatively new but I never knew until she told me herself. I still had trouble believing it.

First off, who doesn’t love a rock star romance? Well forget what you’ve read, Tara is in a class of her own. This book had me flying high and feeling the angst and brokenness of both characters. We know they both have a past which they are hiding from each other and the world. It makes this story that much more emotional.

Watching the evolution of these two souls is so beautiful and at times heartbreaking. I feel that this is a book everyone needs to read whether rock stars are your thing or not. Tara will make you a believer! She will have you thirsting for more! Keep your eyes peeled for Rock Legend coming July 17th.

Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance!

I’m not who you think I am.

Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that’s what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money – and women – than I know what to do with. But what you don’t see is the wreckage I’ve caused. The memories and pain I can’t escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold.

I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn’t work. It hurt me and – worse – it hurt my band. That’s the last thing I want to do, so I’m cleaning up my act… starting with Delaney Fraser.

Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice – Delaney is the perfect “girlfriend.” When I’m with her I don’t have to pretend. It’s like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that’s dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn’t actually exist. He’s a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.

And it’s impossible to love a lie, right?

Review – Folsom by Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster

Folsom by Tarryn Fisher

My rating: 6 of 5 stars

I don’t do dystopian books. The last dystopian series I read was Divergent in 2012-2014. I don’t do dystopian. Futuristic world settings and characters aren’t my thing. I don’t do dystopian or didn’t much … until now. Until Tarryn Fisher and Willow Aster knocked me off my axis into the delicious dystopian world of FOLSOM.

With YEARS since my last dystopian, I had no idea what to expect with this unconventional romance. Nothing. So I went in with an open mind. I picked up Folsom, challenging myself, stepping so far from my story comfort zone that I wondered who I was, and dove into this oh-so-different-for-me book. Different is an understatement. Folsom is DARINGLY DIFFERENT. It’s unlike anything I’ve read before and so unique that it’s in its own UNIQUE UNIVERSE.Folsom is so different that I were to describe much, I’d ruin it for readers.

This is the way it should be. Men allowed to hunt.

Once I started Folsom, I didn’t want to … I wouldn’t … couldn’t stop reading. I couldn’t help but notice that this story authored by two authors was meticulously made. This author duo of Fisher and Asters write so seamlessly together as one solid voice, so seamless that you’ll be hard-pressed to tell where one starts and the other stops. I couldn’t put down this DELICIOUS DYSTOPIAN DELIGHT that became my far-out realm and reality. Its powerful and passionate plot of a female-dominate world with male pollinators DOMINATED ME. The strong and smoldering hero and heroine melted together and made me fall in love with them fast. This raw and riveting romance set in another world suddenly became my world.

The moment I saw her, I knew. A feeling, a draw, the smallest spark of kindling.

Thrilling, tender, and thought-provoking, Folsom takes you so far to the edge that you’ll be powerless to stop the fall of feels. This BOUNDARY-BREAKING BOOK beguiled me the whole time reading! Bold, beautiful, and blisteringly smart, Folsom is UTTERLY UNFORGETTABLE. I FELT this Folsom fantasy world as it were my reality. Folsom UNEQUIVOCALLY OWNED every ounce of me. Every thought. Every feel. EVERYTHING. Folsom is EVERYTHING!

”I’ve been living without feeling anything and now I feel everything.”

I can’t recommend Folsom highly enough! There aren’t enough stars for this out-of-this world romance! A TOP 2018 READ!!!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 daringly different and delicious stars

View all my reviews

The nation as we know it is a thing of the past.

With the male species on the verge of extinction, a society called the End Men is formed to save the world. Folsom Donahue is one of twelve men whose sole purpose is to repopulate the Regions. The endless days spent having sex with strangers leaves Folsom with an emptiness no amount of women, money, or status can fill.

Until Gwen.

Gwen has wanted a child for as long as she can remember, but when she finally gets a chance to have her own, she uncovers a long hidden truth. The injustice she sees moves her to help save the men whom no one else believes need saving.

A forbidden love, grown in a time of despair, ignites a revolution.

Folsom and Gwen, torn between their love for each other and their sense of duty, must make a choice. But some will stop at nothing to destroy them.

Review – Rebel Heir by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Rebel Heir by Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

I NEED MORE THAN 5 STARS DAMMIT!!!!!

Smoking hot chemistry – check.

Two insanely, lovable characters – check.

Solid, flawless writing – check.

Intense, heart pounding story – check.

Perfection in a book – CHECK CHECK CHECK!

20% was all it took for me to fall head over heels with this book. 20% in for me and I never wanted it to end. I honestly think I’ve found my new favourite Ward & Keeland book. I honestly think I love a Ward & Keeland hero more than Graham *gasps*. Yes I said it and I don’t regret it. Rush is PHENOMENAL! I’ve fallen head over heels in love with him. I just CANNOT EXPLAIN him well enough to fully tell you how incredible he is!

Rebel Heir is one of those books that just takes you away. Away from the world and all the things happening around you. Vi & Penelope have a way with their writing that is indescribable. They catapult you INTO the story, they make you a part of it and everything seems so real. Not many authors have this ability at all, in my opinion. But Vi & Penelope nail it every time.

As this is the first of a duet it ends with a SHOCKER. A shock-er! But the angst and the build up and the overall feel is so, so WORTH IT! I actually don’t want to tell you ANYTHING ELSE about this book because it will spoil it. You just cannot understand how amazing it is until you READ IT. And you MUST!

Rebel Heir is a sweet and hella sexy novel that builds this duet perfectly. The characters are insanely charismatic. The story is angsty and super addictive. I just love EVERYTHING about it!!

From New York Times Bestselling authors Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward, comes the first book in a new, sexy duet.

How to kick off a great summer in the Hamptons:

Snag a gorgeous rental on the beach. Check.

Get a job at a trendy summer haunt. Check.

How to screw up a great summer in the Hamptons:

Fall for the one guy with a dark leather jacket, scruff on his face, and intense eyes that doesn’t fit in with the rest of the tony looking crowd. A guy you can’t have when you’ll be leaving at the end of the season.

Check. Check. Check.

I should add—especially when the guy is your sexy, tattooed God of a boss.

Especially when he not only owns your place of employment but inherited half of the town.

Especially when he’s mean to you.

Or so I thought.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.

That was sort of how it all started with Rush.

And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.

I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.

I wasn’t supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.

As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.

All good things must come to an end, right?

Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Rebel Heir is the first book in the Rush Series Duet. Book Two, Rebel Heart, will release six weeks later on May, 22, 2018.

REBEL HEIR is easy Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland best book yet! I URGE YOU to click this, RIGHT NOWWWWW!!!!!

Review – Under The Stars by Tia Louise

5 out of 5 stars

What can I say? Tia Louise strikes again, and it’s just a huge explosion. The stunning conclusion to this duet will leave you breathless. I’m trying to write this without giving anything away because she keeps you on your toes trying to figure out what’s coming next. Packed with intrigue, mystery, action, angst, undying love and devotion, and that Tia Louise heat we all know and love, this conclusion will rock your world. I see another book or possibly duet coming our way from this one and I will surely be happy to get my hands on it.

Under the Stars, the stunning conclusion of the thrilling, white-hot second-chance Bright Lights Duet from USA Today bestselling author Tia Louise is available NOW!

Under the Stars

All around us was darkness and night…

I’m not a hero. I’m a survivor.

I had one way out, and I took it.

Now all I want is peace,

A place to pick up the pieces and start over.

But she wants justice.

Names on a list, faces in the crowd.

I vowed to help her, but it’s taking us back to the demons.

Until he appeared.

I thought he died in the fight.

I was wrong.

He’s here.

Stronger, more powerful… Sexier.

And dangerous.

The boy I loved is now the one man we have to fear most.

When he tried to save me, he had no power.

Now everything has changed, and he’ll never stop until I’m his.

~ Lara ~

We stop walking and turn to face the emerald waters. The briny air pushes her hair back and around her shoulders. Tendrils spin around my face, and the inescapable sorrow filters through my chest.

“I can’t do this anymore.”

“Yes, you can.” Her voice is flat, and she bends to put Pierre on the dry sand. “I’m going up. How much longer will you be out here? Celeste is making Quiche Lorraine for breakfast.”

Another sigh. “I’ll be up in a bit. I’m finishing my exercise.”

“Don’t stay out too long or I’ll eat all the food! Come, Pierre!”

I watch her run up the tall staircase, her little dog at her heels, thinking of the reasons she has to run. I remember her as a small girl on the street, in the dark alley behind the theater. She was thin and starving and hunched in the corner waiting to die.

She was so malnourished, I thought she was younger than her actual age, which was twelve. I remember carrying her inside and fighting with Rosa. I remember Rosa boxing my ears and telling me the first time that kid cried, she’d throw us both in the alley with the rats. I remember the terror I felt that night and Molly falling asleep so quietly with her head on my chest.

She needed me. She loved me, and I loved her fiercely in return.

I remember her running around the theater, a sweet and innocent kid never suspecting the hawk was circling above, watching her, closing in to steal her soul and warp her future. I’ll never forgive myself for what happened to her. I’ll never forgive myself for not being there to protect her.

A flash of pain moves through my stomach, and I remember someone saying the same words to me not so long ago…

Walking to the edge of the water, I look out at the surf, at the waves rushing in and out. I think about how nothing bad can happen here. The sins of the past are far, far away from this beautiful place.

Only it’s a lie.

The sins of the past are never far away.

We carry them with us in our hearts wherever we go.

No matter how far we run, we can never outrun ourselves.

Tears are in my eyes, and I blink them away. My emotions are so close to the surface these days. I squat and wrap my arms around my knees, holding my insides together and wishing…

My wishes never come true.

“Lara!” A strong male voice cuts through the breeze.

For a moment I don’t believe it. It’s a wish caught on the wind and carried away out to sea.

“Lara!” It’s louder this time, closer.

Nervous anticipation floods my chest. I stand and look up and over my shoulder. The staircase where Molly descended is empty. The one ahead of it is empty as well.

Was it a dream?

Another shout, and I realize it’s coming from behind me. Turning, I see a tall figure jogging down the steps. He’s alone, and he’s moving fast. I look around, and no one is here. I have nowhere to run, nowhere to hide.

My heart alternates between beating out of my chest and dying. I’m back on that train, seeing him for the first time out of the blue, completely caught off-guard, alternately panicking and rejoicing… He’s alive!

He’s wearing faded jeans and a plain white t-shirt. His caramel hair is a little longer, but not much. It moves in the breeze as he approaches me.

He’s strong and pure and gorgeous as ever, and the way we touched, our glorious reunion is stronger and hotter in my memory than the sun climbing higher in the sky.

I want to cry. I want to sing. I want to hold him…

But now everything has changed.

Marni, you blow me away woman. Your diversity of writing amazes me. This by far is the HOTTEST 🔥🔥🔥🔥 book I’ve read by you. Heat from beginning to the sweet ending. I will admit I read the epilogue with tears running down my face. This was such the perfect read. Serious scorch factor with a very emotional storyline.

James is one of the sweetest girls ever and is mature beyond her years, most likely because of losing her parents so you and her chasing her dreams. At 18, she was flying high, successful as could be. Little did she know that was all about to be ripped right out from under her by a nasty vile human being.

Brett, OMG, Brett. James is you ever tire of him, send him my way! That man is HOT!!!! You’d have to be crazy to not fantasize about him, real or not. He will set your panties on fire and melt your heart.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK NOW!! If you’re looking for the perfect weekend read, one click. I promise you will not be disappointed.

A one-night stand with James Ryne, the hottest actress in LA, was a night I’d never forget…

James: I can’t stop thinking about you.

Brett: I didn’t know America’s sweetheart was such a dirty girl.

James: It gets better.

Brett: You’re too young for me.

James: Eighteen’s the age of consent.

Brett: The things I want to do to you right now…

James: Are you ever going to tell me who you really are?

Brett: The best you’ve ever had. That’s all you need to know.

James: When are you coming back to LA?

Brett: Next week—and you’d better not be wearing panties.

Brett: What the hell did I just watch?

James: Oh my God, Brett! It’s going viral!

James: My life is ruined. My career. My reputation.

James: Are you there?

James: Will you let me explain?

James: Brett?

Brett: Forget everything I said before. Forget us.

I tried to forget her…until she walked into my office, begging to get signed.

Her body was leaning into mine, shivering from the air-conditioning vent blowing right above her. I pointed the air in the opposite direction, and my other hand went into her hair, pulling her face toward mine.

“A couple of miles,” I hissed against her lips, parting them for me.

The cranberry juice she’d mixed with her vodka tasted so fucking sweet on her tongue. If she gave me any more of it, I was going to shred her dress right here, dip my face between her legs, and lick her cunt.

Fuck, I couldn’t wait to taste that pussy and see if it was as sweet as the juice.

This driver needed to step on it.

I wasn’t a patient man.

As if she sensed that, she pulled back just a little, and I bit into her bottom lip, holding it, tugging it, before I said, “I’m going to fucking devour you.” Finally releasing her, I turned my attention to her neck, smelling, kissing, gnawing the skin that led to her ear.

“Oh my God,” she groaned, and she tried to slide her fingers through the slots between the buttons of my shirt.

She went lower, brushing back and forth across my cock, and that was when I shackled her wrists in my hand.

“Please,” she whined.

“You’re going to get it all fucking night; don’t you worry.”

We pulled into the front of my high-rise and came to a stop, and I opened the back door.

“I’ve got it, sir,” the driver said.

“I’m good,” I replied, sliding James into my arms and carrying her out.

The doorman didn’t greet me by name, a sign that he was new, but held the door open for us, and I took us through the lobby and into the elevator.

James’s tongue traced the outline of my ear as I pressed the button for my floor and settled us against the back wall.

“Make it hurry,” she breathed.

My thoughts were the same.

When we got to my floor, I rushed us down the short hallway and waved my fob over the reader. It clicked as it unlocked, and I brought us into the bedroom, setting James on her feet right by the bed.

I stood in front of her and said, “Turn around.”

I waited until her back faced me, and then I kissed across it while I lowered the zipper at the same time. She turned again when I was done, and she let the dress fall to the floor.

The only thing she wore now was the pair of black heels.

No bra, no panties.

I leaned back to admire her body. She had tits that were no bigger than my palms, nipples that were small and hard, and a bare pussy with the sweetest fucking clit at the top.

“Jesus Christ,” I moaned. She went to take the heels off, and I said, “Hell no. Keep them on.”

I looped my finger into the Windsor knot and pulled it loose. Before I had it off, James fisted both ends of my tie and used them to pull me toward her. The movement caused my lips to slam against hers, and the tie slithered down my chest, followed by the buttons from my shirt that she had torn apart.

She wanted my cock.

She was getting my tongue first.

Review – Ryan’s Bed by Tijan

23658350_984001185071755_4942100904074562909_n

Ryan’s Bed
by Tijan

My rating: 6 of 5 stars


That would be utopia. If everyone was kind, if everyone was worthy. If there were no hatred, pain, or suffering. If people couldn’t see someone’s skin color, quality of their clothes, where they lived. If nothing mattered except the heart and mind.

It’s not often when I sit and stare at the last line of a story I finished and am left STUNNED SPEECHLESS!!! Three days. It took me three days to process Tijan Meyer’s latest soul-clenching story and translate my emotions into words. This story was UNEXPECTED, so UTTERLY RAW and REAL that my emotions are still reeling from its impact. Ryan’s Bed is a book I dove into blindly but one that made me see. I KNEW that this broken and beautiful book would BREAK ME, and that it did. Ryan’s Bed cut me open and I’m still BLEEDING.


I was dead inside.

Told through the perspective of a teenage girl, Mackenzie, this novel tackles tragedy head on, unraveling emotions and secrets, while love finds its way into broken hearts that have begun to heal.

Mackenzie is the beautiful, bold, and broken teen heroine. She is wise beyond her years. Stuck in a family where secrets and emotions are buried and truths need to be set free, Mackenzie seeks an escape that she finds in Ryan.

“Everything else was flat, black and white, gray, dull, cold, and then I went to him, and it felt like the color was turned on.”

Flirting In Bed

Ryan is gorgeous, smart, witty, and perceptive. He beacon of light in Mackenzie’s dark world. Ryan has a compassionate soul and I felt him soar through my soul. This hero has been through his own hell but is a survivor. Oh did I ADMIRE and love this heartfelt hero!!!

“You make me feel things I thought were gone.”

MacKenzie’s and Ryan’s chemistry is UNDENIABLE. This hero and heroine are drawn together like a moth to a flame. Two broken souls searching for solace. Two broken hearts longing to become whole. Two beautiful souls connected by feels and perhaps fate.

“It’s only you.”

The PARALYZING INTENSITY of this heartwarming and heartbreaking book burned through me like fire. Poignant. Passionate. Powerful. I was GUTTED as Ryan’s Bed gripped my heart and shattered it to pieces!!! I full out sobbed … chest-heaving sobs!!! My Kindle screen was covered in tears from this tornado in words that struck my soul, as Ryan’s Bed tore me apart.

Ryan’s Bed tackles tough issues. Ryan’s Bed is not simply a story—it’s a journey of shining after shattering. It’s healing after heartbreak. It’s bits of ugly woven with bits of beauty. It’s one of those WOW stories that slices you to shreds, baring you open, as the story bares itself to you. It’s an EMOTIONAL HIGH. It’s EVERYTHING!!!

Tijan’s words aren’t just part of a story you’re reading: They are an experience…a journey YOU LIVE and FEEL. I FELT this story’s spirit seize and squeeze my soul. My heart split open where every emotion absorbed every word. I felt every emotion that the hero and heroine felt; their hauntingly beautiful love story was mine.

This was nothing what I expected, it was so much MORE! I bestow all the stars in the constellation to the EMOTIONALLY INTENSE Ryan’s Bed!!! This heartfelt tale is my first 6-STAR STORY this year, the highest for my blog, for those books that are worth the constellation of stars. Ryan’s Bed is not only my FIRST TOP 2018 read but it’s a TOP LIFETIME READ too.

THANK YOU, Tijan, for bringing this vision to light. Thank you for your bravery in bringing this book to readers. Thank you for making this story feel so real. Thank you for this soul-stirring story. An evocative and emotionally-wound journey of heartbreak and healing, Ryan’s Bed leaves a lasting mark on the soul. This HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL book broke me in the best way and is one that I’ll remember forever.

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident.

I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed—her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should’ve left…

I didn’t.
I didn’t jump out.
I didn’t get embarrassed.
I relaxed.
And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved.

I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept.

The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could’ve stayed forever, I would have.
He became my sanctuary.

Because—four hours earlier—my twin sister killed herself.
