My Review

I just loved this anthology. It was slap full of so many amazing authors. Being such a fan of forbidden/student teacher romance, which just so happens to be what most of these little novellas or mini short-stories are, I was in hog heaven! 

Falling At First Sight by Willow Winters

The preschool teacher and the parent. This steamy, sweet and swoony. It was an  adorably perfect little novella to kick off this book! 😍😂😍

Just for a Little While by Fiona Cole

This is forbidden gold, y’all!! I mean a pseudo-uncle and his niece. Um… yes please!! So forbidden! Not to worry, he’s not exactly her uncle, oh but he is her professor. So hot dang, this can only go down…hahaha A few ways. Willem and Arabella are fire. He is the perfect H. He’s just a little jealous and a whole little of alpha in the bedroom. She was made for him. His perfectly made dirty girl. It’s just so,so good! 🔥🔥

Mr.Cline is Fine by Meghan Quinn 

Talk about a smokin second chance romance…err sort of. In this novella you have Gunnar, a retired MLB player turned teacher/coach and Lindsey the woman with whom he’s hooked up with repeatedly over the years at different times. When they run into each other at a teachers conference and he realizes he wants much more with her than the hook ups from years past. But what will happen when Lindsey drops a unexpected bomb on him, will it run their chances at a future before they get started or solidify it?!?! 😍♥️😍

The Fortune Teller by Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

I love this. When it started off It had that mysterious and intrigue- that feeling of wonder that a fortune teller at a carnival gives you. It’s like an eerie excitement. But from the moment Bryan walked into Theo’s tent he was entranced by her. They had a connection. Never did either of these the sexy strangers they made out with on the Ferris wheel they would see on the first day of school when Theo was the last to come into class. 🔮 🖤✨

Headmaster Taurin by Ella Fields 

Set in Ella Fields new Nightingale world Rose and Coopers initiation time has come and it was a an unexpected experience. One that took and intimate experience, blindfolded them and brought in and unexpected additional participate. So.Freakin.HOTT! ☄️🔥💥

Over His Knee by Jade West  

Holy Jeeze!! Talk about an amazing and deliciously dirty headmaster and naughty school girl novella. This is so steamy and oh so forbidden. Yes, Yes, Yes!! 🔥😍🔥

He Made Be Stay by K. Webster

Oh my heart y’all!! Jasper broke it in two. But thank goodness for Kit. Dear sweet, adorable, funny, refreshing, and everything he needed, Kit. He saved him in EVERY WAY! I cannot say enough about this one. For as short as it was I ran the gamut of emotions. Oh how my heart hurt, how it swooned, how it beat in flutters and how it was filled with love and hope with the joy and longing for the future that Jasper had to look forward to now. 😍😭🔥♥️😘

The Painter by Amelia Wilde

This was another amazing student/teacher forbidden romance about an artist and his apprentice. So. Flipping.Steamy! 🔥🖤🔥

Dirty Little Secrets by Trilina Pucci 

Go back to the Hillcrest Academy world with Ava and Jackson for one hot and steamy night for an incredibly smokin hot and unforgettable encounter. 🔥😏🔥

Fumbled Future by Meagan Brandy 

This is an adorably swoony and sweet second chance romance with lots of heat! 🔥 I fell hard and fast for all things Mia and Austin. They were cute, sweet and sexy all at the same time. Talk about melting your hearts and your kindles! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐- So much goodness in here! All the stars! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- GAH! This was full of all the steam, plenty of sweet and swoony. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- Y’all!*It’s So Good* Perfection. Yay! 🙌🏻🔥🙌🏻

Adoring Keaton Release Blitz & Review

🔥🔥HOT NEW RELEASE🔥🔥

Adoring Keaton by Siobhan Davis is LIVE!

A friends-to-lovers new adult MM romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Stand-alone with HEA and no cliffhanger.

Keaton
Moving to California was supposed to be my fresh start. A clean slate. An opportunity to drop the façade, escape the lies, find a focus, and just be myself.But I should have realized it wouldn’t be easy, especially when my last name is Kennedy.I’m not ready to be a gay icon or some celebrity role model. I still haven’t admitted the truth to my family or the girl I professed to love, so there’s no way I want the public to know I’m into dudes.Falling for my hot, straight, football-player roomie wasn’t part of the game plan.Neither was backing myself into a corner because I trusted the wrong guy.Now everything is on the line, and it’s time to stop pretending.

Austen
From the time I was a little kid, all I wanted is to play football in college and play in the NFL. As wide receiver for the Golden Bears, I am on track to achieve my goals, but it comes at a heavy price.Denying who I am—for the sake of my career—goes against everything I believe. I should never have listened to my high school coach, because all the lies are suffocating me.Until Keaton Kennedy enters my life, turning it upside down.Now, there is even more reason to tell the truth, because I’m falling for the famous one and I want the entire world to know.

My Review

My friends, my heart is in a ooey-gooey perfect little cloud of satisfaction and awe and Adoring Keaton is the book responsible for this hangover of happiness. I fell so hard and fast for these two guys and their story. It was perfection and I find myself smiling still thinking of them long after the book has closed. I know it is one I will most definitely visit for a re-read. It was.just.that.good. 😍

This is the story of Keaton Kennedy, and his roommate turned lover Austen Hayes, and Siobhan’s first dive into a full M/M only romance. Let me tell you guys, she absolutely nailed it. This is a heartfelt and emotional story about the journey of self discovery and growth. It’s about learning to believe in yourself and become comfortable in your own skin, and to be proud of who you are.

Both Keaton and Austen are struggling with these issues on their own for different reasons, both being in the public eye. What I loved is the strength they garner from each other. It’s empowering in ways neither expects. They were both dealing with some backlash from things in their past attempting to come back to haunt them, and that definitely created some issues for them. But I just knew if they could overcome these obstacles, they would be unstoppable.

They had this beautiful undeniable inevitable love. They were meant to be together, from the moment they met. This wasn’t just about two men accepting who they are and being proud enough to shout out to everyone “they love who they love” and to hell with everyone else. I mean, yes, it did have aspects of that, But at the heart of it all they were just two people in love, overcoming adversity and the obstacles in their way to be together, like any couple that is destined to be together. You aren’t thinking about the M/M aspect of the book, you are caught up in the beautiful love story, Keats and Austen’s story. Love is powerful, it’s strong. Love can conquer almost anything else, reign above everything if you let it. I mean in the end love should ALWAYS, ALWAYS WIN!!

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Adoring Keaton was so much more than I could possibly have imagined it would be. This book was emotionally riveting and took me through the gamut of feelings. It was sexy, sweet and swoony. It was also angsty, and left me wonderfully frustrated. Everything about it was just phenomenal! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥-This is one of those books that I like to say will simultaneously melt your heart and your kindle and boy will this one. It was so.freaking.hot! Siobhan has writing love scenes down to a science and she makes them packed with so much chemistry and heat they are dang near combustible 🔥 the best kinda down and dirty love makin’ 😍

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 No Cliff! 😍 It was amazing getting to have so many of our favorite Kennedy’s back to see how they are doing these days. From start to finish it

was just fantastic, I cried, I laughed, I loved, and I swooned. I loved these characters and felt hurt right along with them. I can’t wait for Kent’s book. I need it like I need air!!

My Darling Arrow Blog Tour & Review

Release Date: September 17 


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


NOTE: This book is a standalone and DOES NOT contain cheating

My Review

Saffron A. Kent is most definitely one of my forbidden favorites. One of my go-to’s when I need an age-gap. When I am looking for a delicious and dirty romance that will capture my heart and soul and have me all twisted and turned inside and out before letting me go. THIS story, My Darling Arrow was just that. A perfectly packed emotional journey. I devoured this book so quickly. I absolutely didn’t want to put it down. To be totally honest I was actually sad when it was over. It could have gone on forever and I would have been a happy happy girl! 😍

She had been plagued by something she couldn’t take any longer and had to get away, things didn’t quite work out how she had planned and that ended with her at St. Mary’s. There she meets a group of supportive friends that help her escape the confines of the restrictive walls.

Finally the one with the bewitching eyes and plump lips, she loves to coat in rebellious colors of lipstick, is finally able to explore the opportunity to be with the one she has always dreamed of. Even if that means she has to offer herself up.

From the first page I was entranced by Salem’s character. Her years of deep love, obsession, devotion, and sacrifice for the love of her life, Arrow. She kept it all inside in secret, only letting it flow freely in her letters she wrote to him, that she would never actually send to him. There were reasons for the deep rooted secrecy, and those I will keep to myself as well, because I wouldn’t dare spoil it for you, dear readers. Salem found herself at St. Mary’s reform school after running away from home.

Arrow was a tougher character to crack at first. He arrives at St. Mary’s angry, damaged  and so different from the Arrow, Salem knew all these years. She doesn’t understand why he is here or what things could have happened in his life to lead him back home to St. Mary’s, but she makes up her mind she is going to help him. No matter what might happen to her heart in the process. I love characters like Arrow. He was so complex. There were so many layers to him and to why he was the way he was. It was definitely hard sometimes to read him hurt my sweet devoted Salem, but to see his transformation by the end…OMG!! Gah! This is why I read books like this and why YOU should too!   

“I’ll still love him. I’ll still dive into the ocean and jump off an airplane for him. He’s my Arrow. My darling Arrow.”

I loved the entire cast of characters in this book( well except for the mean girls)  and I am so excited that this is only book one in a new series of standalone books. This was a perfect way to kick it off. We got a really good setup for the next book, A Gorgeous Villain. Callie’s story.   

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- My Darling Arrow was EVERYTHING!! This book captivated me from the first page until I closed it! It was the perfect blend of forbidden meets age-gap(only five years),coming of age, emotional, sexy and swoony. It was also angsty and sweet and frustrating. These characters were amazing and complex and I wanted to cry for them and with them. I also wanted to throttle some of them at the same time.  I wanted to be sneaking out to hang out with them. I can’t wait to devour the next book in this series. Everything about it was just fantabulous!

🔥🔥🔥🔥-This is one of those books that I like to say will simultaneously melt your heart and your kindle and boy will this one. It was so.freaking.hot! Good gravy it was alpha AF and  HOT AS HADES!! Talk about a combustible couple 🔥 deliciously, down and dirty love makin’ 😍

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 No Cliffy! 😍 OMG that HEA though!! Perfection!

Sicko Blog Tour & Review

SICKO by Amo JonesRelease Date: September 1stAdd to Goodreads:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50489991-sicko

AVAILABLE NOW!!FREE in Kindle Unlimited!Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3epdGz2Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/34XLiTxAmazon CA: https://amzn.to/2YMioS8Amazon AU: https://amzn.to/34J0L9B

Blurb:He was my foster brother.He swore to protect me.He failed.They all failed.I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.He answers to Sicko.

My Review

WOW!! Just WOW! Amo Jones has dang near left me speechless. In a puddle of emotions, all of my feelings torn to shreds. I was absolutely broken by the incredible masterpiece that is Sicko, before Amo Jones put me back together piece by piece. Let me start by saying that I think that Amo is incredibly talented and she gets better with every book she writes. As soon as I know she has a new book coming out, I immediately add it to my TBR,  block out my schedule for it. This book was no different. It was everything I was hoping for, yet absolutely nothing like I was expecting it to be. It. Was.So.Much.More! 

Royce and Jade’s characters are phenomenally written. Royce first meets Jade, when she is brought into the family as a baby (a foster)  and then adopted by them. As they grew up they always had a special connection, but when they grew to teens it became an entirely different type of love and connection between them. Royce’s love caused him to be alpha and protective. Jade might have been young but it was more than jealousy and infatuation. 

“We fight a lot, but we love hard and when it comes to him and me, one cannot exist without the other. “

Their story is dark and tragically devastating. Parts of it hurt badly to read. I was broken down and torn apart. I hurt for these two characters who were inevitably meant for one another. Royce left her right on the cusp of them finally getting to be together, and it devastated her. What she endured after was the stuff nightmares are made of, but it showed us the strength and resilience of this beautifully crafted character. She was amazing. She was a warrior, perseverance personified. Complex and strong. I rooted and cheered for her to get her happy ending. Because if anyone deserved it, it was most certainly her. 

Royce/Sicko shredded me when he left Jade. I didn’t understand it. But…I knew and trusted that Amo would reveal to us why and who was behind Royce leaving and hurting Jade. However , the chain of events that happened to our Jade after he left was shocking, and unpredictable. It left me breathless and awestruck. I hung on every syllable of this book. Dangling on the edge of my seat. It was the perfect blend of dark and devastating, delicious and deviant. It was heartbreaking but at the same time full of hope. Truly it was the best kind of story. Triumph over tragedy, and what I love the most about dark romance. It was the forbidden dark romance I was looking for and didn’t even know it. At its very deepest, and darkest core, Amo Jones tells us a tragically beautiful tale of true love so strong that it slays the nastiest of demons, overcomes the most horrific of obstacles and forgiveness that heals even the most shattered and broken. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-  This is a book this is almost impossible to sum up in a few sentences. Because this book is one I will think about for a long time to come. It’s one that you won’t be the same after reading. So you definitely need to read this book!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Oh My god. Hot Smokin’ Hades!!🔥Royce and Jade are off the charts hot. And don’t even get me started on the addition of Wicked! Because I.Am.Dead.💀

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! However, I would sell all I own for Wicked’s book right about now or very soon.

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some, just as the author warns in the beginning. It is what you would expect from a Dark/MC Romance. They are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

About the Author:Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Blurb

Welcome to their kingdom.They call me a heartless bitch.An evil manipulator.A wicked princess who enjoys hurting people.They tell me terrible things happened.Things that changed my life forever.Only problem is…I can’t remember any of it.

My Review

My Friends! Wicked Princess was unputdownable, amazing, phenomenal, and fantastic. There was so much mystery surrounding this book. I will say that sent me in with some pretty high expectations already set. I felt Wicked Princess exceeded the expectations I had going in and more. What I loved was that Bianca’s story was so much more than what I was expecting, Bianca’s character was more. As far as her love interest I didn’t know who in the world we would see her paired with so I wasn’t even gonna try to speculate. I went into this book pretty much despising Bianca because of who she was in Cruel Prince and Ruthless Knight. She was definitely one of those you love to hate. She was repulsive. 

For this reason it is a MUST that you read the previous books in the series so you won’t be confused with who everyone is and the dynamics of the relationships surrounding them all. Especially their relationship with Bianca. 

But holy hades people, when it comes to my feelings about Bianca Covington…Like the character herself, I am a CHANGED WOMAN! I am so in love with her character now, the direction Ashley Jade went with her. I. Can’t. Even! 😭😍😭 

She redeemed Bianca C!! Holy geez! 🤯 She is just so tragically perfect and beautiful now, inside and out..WHAT? This broken, wicked princess has a broken crown now y’all! She was no longer on her pedestal above reigning down terror on all the masses and it actually both  broke my heart that she wasn’t and made me cheer.  The realizations surrounding it all made her far more superior in my eyes than she ever had been. Her suffering hurt me. The unveiling of all of the many layers to Bianca was a devastating pleasure to read. Her journey was so worth all suffering and pain she had to go through to come out on where she ended up. The growth and changes we see in her were infinite and nothing short of astounding. 

Now, I won’t give any spoilers as to who her beau is or what all happens with them and their incredible obstacles and there were obstacles, but I will say I devoured this book in mere hours. There were no other options. Life was on hold until I knew what was gonna happen. It was tough, often hard and heartbreaking at times. Some of the most painful thus far in this series, because we have to endure the most tragic parts of the pasts of the again as those secrets are again revealed and unearthed. 

You will be able to read this book really quickly, I did it in just a few hours. I couldn’t wait to see who,  what, and just how everything was going to play out for them.  

It happens very fast and this is a fairly short book especially when compared to her brother’s books. They were some BIG books. Not to worry though, you certainly don’t feel like you were slighted. Her book was just as good as her brother’s stories and I know for certain I am not alone when saying I absolutely cannot wait for the next book in the series. Bring it on!

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book.

My Review

So, The Pool Boy is exactly what I look for when I am looking for a reverse age-gap romance. It’s fast paced, super steamy, forbidden deliciousness. An exciting read if you are looking for a hot, and quick summer weekend read.

We have our beautiful heroine, Erika, who’s worked her fanny off, literally,  the last couple of years. She’s been trying to get the attention of her husband of twenty years, sadly unsuccessfully. When she finds out why he’s been not showing her affection, she is devastated. It’s a hard blow y’all. But what I love about her is she’s a strong successful woman. She picks herself up by her bootstraps and moves on with her life. 

Her character is loving and young at heart. She’s beautiful and a wonderful person and I love who she is when she’s with Troy. It didn’t matter that she was 42 and Troy was 24 he made her comfortable with her sensuality and brought out her musical creativity that had been dormant for a while. 

Troy was the hot young pool boy who had a crush on Erika for the last five years. When fate hands him his chance to have a hot hook up, he takes it. What started out as a secret friend with benefits type situation quickly became so much more, when Erika who is a successful music manager known around Music City, stumbles upon Troy performing at a bar one night, and encourages him to go for his dreams to become a recording and performing artist. Their relationship is complicated. There are several things(I won’t spoil it by disclosing them) working against them, but can Troy and Erika fight the odds in this super steamy reverse age gap romance? Full of great secondary characters and set in the amazing backdrop of Nashville, this is the second standalone novel in Nikki Sloane’s Nashville Neighborhood Series. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

Don’t miss this reverse age gap romance. 

Four Forbidden Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This has everything you could possibly want: love, lies, betrayal, secrets, forgiveness.  

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Troy and Erika burn up everything from the pool house to the bedroom to the living room. Yes, Yes, Yes!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning🌪-!!Perfect HEA no cliffy😍♥️😍

Excerpt

Troy Osbourne came once a week to service both my pool and the freestanding spa. I’d hired him last year to handle closing and covering the pool for the winter, then reopening it for me last month, and his weekly visits that followed had kept the water crystal clear and the pH perfectly balanced.

My pool had never looked so good.

But Troy always came when I was at work and let himself in through the gate at the side of my fence, so I had completely forgotten his schedule. He must have gone behind the pool house and inside to fetch his supplies, and when he’d rounded the corner and discovered me topless, he’d dropped everything in his arms.

Including the long pole with the net on the end.

It was as if someone had put their foot down on the sustain pedal of a piano, only this piano played the music of time, and the moment suspended with my long, drawn out gasp.

I was topless, and he was frozen, and holy shit, he was my best friend’s twenty-four-year-old son.

It burst from my lips in horror. “Oh, fuck!”

 In my panic, I grasped at my towel to cover myself, only to struggle, hopelessly, since it was pinned beneath my body. I leapt to my feet and yanked the terrycloth up, pressing it over my naked chest.

Troy still hadn’t moved. His lips were open, as if he’d planned to say something, but now he was frozen and unable to do anything. I couldn’t see his eyes behind his mirrored Aviator sunglasses, but he didn’t seem to be breathing.

So, I did what any reasonable woman would when a gorgeous, almost-stranger caught her naked.

I ran.

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero! Life was nearly stolen from me. In the blink of an eye, everything changed. I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum. I’m irrevocably altered. Damaged both inside and out. I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live. Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths. Some days, I wish I never woke up. But then life takes an unusual turn. A sweet, sad little girl might be mine. My dream job is gifted to me. I have a doctor who cares. Things are looking up. Until her. One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything. She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone. Pokes. Prods. Infuriates. This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me. Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time. I’ll shake her off eventually. She’s nothing to me. A Hood River zero. Try telling my heart that… This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!

My Review

What an amazingly, unputdownable way to end the Hood River Hoodlums series. 🤩Each book in this series was unique and each couple tragically beautiful in their own way. This series is binge-worthy. You can’t help but to fall deeply in love with each character, their journey and their back story. I am super excited about the note to readers in the back of Hood River Zero. 🙌🏻

Terrance and Penny captured my heart🥰 a long time ago. Both of these characters have deep issues they are dealing with, but they are able to recognize they are each other’s perfect counterpart😍. They always just seem to know exactly what the other one needs. GAH! It’s precious and sweet and emotional. Penny was the one who brought Terrance out of the pit of despair he was in. Boy did she ever. Lol 

She did it in that blunt, sharp witted tongue lashing way that only the “Mean-Ass Hoodlum” 😈 could bestow upon you. It was the way he needed to hear it too. 

Penny struggles with issues of her own and has for years. When Terrance shows interest in wanting her to be his girl how will she respond? She knew she wasn’t normal inside and figured no one would ever really want her if they could see inside her head. Terrance immediately picked up her struggles and always anticipates her needs almost before she even does. 

“Terrence is normal. Perfect, even with his uneven head, drooping eye, and plentiful scars.And I’m the definition of imperfect. Broken and flawed and barely functioning.”

He is so drawn to her and is almost surprised when she went from Hollis’ little sister to his everything. But since he can’t get her out of his head then nothing will stop him from making her his. Making sure she knows she is safe, loved and cared for. He’s just this big teddy bear with a heart of gold, that can kick you fanny if you mess with what’s his. So.Freakin.Hot! 🔥

“It’s Penny, for fuck’s sake. Bratty, annoying, mean-ass Penny. God sure did make her fucking pretty to mess with my head.”

This book, like the others, is full of secrets, lies and suspense. All of our favorite Hoodlums must come together to help their own. Several things happen in this book that need some Hoodlum smackdown, and no one brings a beat down like a Hoodlum set out to protect the ones they love. This entire series is a much read.

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-Don’t miss this friends-to-lovers, age-gap, forbidden Romance. This has everything you could possibly want: angst, suspense, love, lies, betrayal, secrets, forgiveness.  

🔥🔥🔥- Terrance and Penny are everything slow burn to the bedroom. But it’s perfect when we get there. Yes, Yes, Yes!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning🌪-!! I just love all my Hoodlums. I want more!! 

🔫 Trigger Warning-This book does have some violent scenes, and scenes that discuss disturbing memories for one of our characters that could be considered triggers for some. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

Blurb:
Can you keep a secret?

I grew up sick.

Let me clarify.

I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.

Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.

 When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.

Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.

Secrets that cost us everything to keep.

That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.

Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.

And all were punished.⁣⁣

My Review

Mind.Offically.Blown!🤯 This phenomenal book, part one to the amazing new duet by Kate Stewart is shocking, awe inspiring, thought provoking and suspenseful. The level of chemistry is astronomical.

I will do my very best to not give anything about this book away so I am going to keep it as vague as possible. 

This is the story of Cecelia and Sean, her supervisor at her new job working for her father’s company. They meet in employee orientation and sparks are immediate. When she meets his roommates a different dimension is added to this story. After his wickedly delicious roommate Dominic comes on the scene, this entire book takes you on a journey of forbidden, temptation personified.

It’s a world of secrets, lies and obsession, and Cecelia finds herself caught up in it all. I can’t wait to see what happens in book two, because the end of book one sure left me breathless.😱

“A nonstop roller coaster of intensity! PSU is the ride you never want to end. Anything Steiner writes, I’m reading.” – Amazon #1 Bestselling Author, Brittainy C. Cherry

Ritual by bestselling author Kandi Steiner is now live! 

Written like your favorite drama television show, the Palm South University series has been called “a mix of Greek meets Gossip Girl with a dash of Friends.” Follow seven college students as they maneuver unrequited love, teacher/student romance, the tangles of “no strings” relationships, love triangles and more. Each “season” has six “episodes,” and just like when your favorite show hits Netflix, you can read just one episode at a time or binge the entire thing. With the perfect mix of angst, emotional romance, and romantic comedy, the Palm South University series is your next guilty addiction.

Drama. Lies. Sex.

Welcome to Palm South University.

The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in South Florida. At a school where fraternities and sororities don’t exactly play by the rules, relationships are bound to be tested. Parties and sex are definitely key ingredients in the Palm South recipe, but what happens when family issues, secret lives, and unrequited love get tossed in the mix?

Follow Cassie, Bear, Jess, Skyler, Erin, Ashlei, and Adam as they tackle college at a small, private beach town university. Written in television drama form, each episode of this serial will pull you deeper and deeper into the world of PSU.

Where the sun is hot and the clothes are scarce, anything can happen.

My Review

OMG! Ritual will be the death of me yet, y’all! I’m so invested in the lives of the PSU crew. They are my people. I need to know what’s happening for them. This book was everything I was hoping it would be. It was exciting and sexy. It was filled with drama and misunderstandings. It made me laugh and it made me cry. I smiled, swore, fanned myself, cheered and seriously wanted to scream out in frustration.

I cannot wait for February, when we will get the next book. I have so many unanswered questions and need to see what’s going to happen now that Erin, Lei, and Jess are graduating. How they will still remain just as much a part of the series and what will happen for them when they are out of the KKB house and on their own.

If you haven’t started this series, now is the perfect time to get all caught up and start to fall in love with all of the amazing characters today!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- So Many Stars! It was so full of fun, greek life shananigans,  secrets , angst, sex, heart, banter, tears, sexual tension , loss, and frustration, and surprises! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-This book is filled to the brim with Sexy Sorority Sisters and Abs-for-days Alpha AF fraternity gods. Oh Yummy! Sexy scenes were indescribably off the charts hot! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪Because we have another book. Coming in February, there are several storylines that do not see resolution in this book. We also have a doozy dropped on us at the end.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

The Jezebel Blog Tour & Review

“I laughed, I cried, I swooned. I adored every minute! An absolute MUST READ for all romance lovers!”
–A.L. Jackson, New York Times bestselling author

His love was a secret her heart couldn’t keep…

The Jezebel, a steamy forbidden, second chance romance by USA Today bestselling author, Dylan Allen is available now!

TheJezebel-5x8ebook

Stone Rivers is a sin I can’t commit.

After years of playing the trophy, puppet, perfectionist,
I’ve forgotten who I am.
Until the boy from my past walks back into my life.
Handsome as sin, charming beyond belief—Stone Rivers is temptation personified.

Our combustible chemistry shatters my resolve.
His blistering kisses remind me of everything I used to want.

But, our present is just as messy as our past.
And reckless as it may be, I can’t let him go.

My name is Regan Wilde.
I’m a mother, a sister, a daughter.

But Stone and I?
We’re a scandal in the making.

My Review

I am such a jumble of emotions over The Jezebel. Dylan Allen always writes the most fantastically poignant stories. Tales that draw you in to the point you are so wrapped up, so invested in the lives of the characters you feel every shock, and barb to the heart along with them. You also celebrate the successes, feel the burden of the hurts and fears and fist pump in the air when they finally overcome adversities. 

That’s what this story was for me. It was riveting and special. Regan Wilde and Stone Rivers are the star crossed lovers, who were never supposed to be together. This phenomenal reverse age-gap, forbidden, brother’s best friend’s romance is like no other.  

This isn’t a tale of the rich cougar, shacking up with the hot young guy on vacay. This is about two souls that were born for each other, who were inevitable. A man and a woman from families that have deep rooted hatred for each other and were never supposed to be. Dreamers that hoped for the day when they could freely be together, not just bask in stolen moments. Will they ever be able to combat all the crap life will throw their way when their secret is discovered? 

“You’re my Venus and I’m your Mars.”

Regan is stunning and sassy and resilient. Over the course of her college years through when she meets Stone again she endures some of the most horrific things. How the Jezebel comes about. OMG. My poor heart. There were moments when I didn’t think I could take another moment. It was excruciatingly heartbreaking. But the complexity of her character was awe inspiring and you could help but to root for her to get back everything she deserved and more.

Stone Rivers was a brilliant, broken boy the first time she saw him. As a man Stone was beautiful, and deliciously dirty. He was everything she needed and wasn’t supposed to have at the same time. He became something wonderful with his life. He could have been a cocky player but he was good to his core. I love this man. I wanted him to have the goddess of his dreams forever. But I wasn’t sure if it was in the cards for him. I loved that he took what time he had with Regan to build her up, to give her confidence and strength. 

tj teaser 1

GAH! This book was magically written. It captures everything from the chemistry between them, the overwhelming angst, the heart-wrenching moments and even funny moments. All of it together made this story the perfect- unputdownable, invested until the last sentence, rollercoaster of emotions. It’s one of those books you can’t stop reading so you devour, but want to savor at the same time. Because you know when the time comes you won’t be ready to let these characters go. It’s faced paced, engaging and unexpected. This is the third stand-alone book in the Rivers Wilde series. Told in dual POV get ready to get emotional as you join Stone and Regan on their incredible journey. It wouldn’t be easy but it would be worth fighting for. In the end love should conquer all, right?! 

“This is us—Wicked, Wanton, Wild and really fucking happy.”
