Blurb:

“Will you help me remember?” That’s the second thing I ask the stranger hovering just outside of my hospital room. To me, Decker Fredric is another nameless face in the crowd. To him, I’m a forgotten girl he hasn’t seen in years. But he agrees to be my crutch through the fog as if we were once friends. Everything is a blank canvas spreading far and wide in front of me. Any direction I take, my steps stumble over the unknown. Decker becomes the only reliable constant in my life. I lean on him too hard, but he doesn’t seem to mind. His unwavering patience and guidance restore some semblance of normal I don’t recall having. My attraction to Decker is instant, but he appears indifferent. Until the day his stare holds a bit too much heat. In return, I dare to let my touch linger. Our hugs cling tighter than a simple embrace should. But we have no business defying the distinct line cutting between us. Decker Fredric was never mine to keep. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting him to be.

Blurb:
Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult novel from bestselling author, Ella Fields.

 

 

 

 

My Review

img_4744

Whenever Ella Fields releases a new book I feel like I have to stop the world, shut out everyone and do nothing but devote myself to the magic that is her words until I have devoured every morsel. This book, this amazingly angsty Step-brother/Forbidden/Second Chance Romance was no exception to that rule. It was emotionally wrecking and beautiful at the same time. It broke me before it put me back together again.

IMG_6515

Jackson and Willa were the ultimate experience of inevitable love. Everything about their journey will leave you breathless, in tears, and rooting for them to overcome all the obstacles before them. To ignore everything and everyone that could possibly stand in their way. Jackson the broody, beautiful boy that Willa isn’t supposed to love like that, but she does. Willa so sweet and gorgeous and Jackson isn’t supposed to touch her, but that didn’t stop him.

IMG_6513

“I feel like I need you to breathe properly.”

IMG_6514

When they’re discovered it brings a world of hurt down on them and the love they share is scandalized and made out to be wrong and vile and they are punished for it. When choices are made to protect one another it causes misunderstandings and starts a domino effect that spans years and miles between them. Can Jackson and Willa right their wrongs and find each other again or have they done irreparable damage to each other’s hearts?

IMG_6512

“In the battle of who hurt who the most, you fucking won, Willa.”

IMG_6510

Y’all this is a much read for fans of edge of your seat forbidden romance fans. That fear for your couple of if and when they will be found out. The heartbreaking moments when they hurt each other unknowingly. GAH!! This book and it’s frustrating “ I’m about to chuck this kindle at the wall” moments. The sensationally sexy moments between this couple that are so forbidden yet sweet, loving and delicious all at the same time. If you haven’t read Ella Fields yet you definitely want to start today. She never fails to hit you straight through the heart plowing through your poor feelings leaving you a devastated and broken mess before she perfectly pieces you back together in the end. You can count on a book hangover for days after one of her books.

IMG_6511

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

BLURB

West Larson comes from old money—the kind of wealth that comes with expectations steeped in archaic traditions. So, it’s not surprising when he learns the conditions of his trust fund: produce an heir before he turns twenty-five.

Enter Stacia Kellan. Her lowkey personality makes her the perfect baby mama…without the drama. And thanks to her wild-ass hair, colorful tattoos, and smart mouth, she’s exactly the kind of girl his parents would never approve of. Add in the fact that she’s a total smokeshow…knocking her up certainly wouldn’t be a hardship.

Stacia lives her life fast and loud. The idea of settling down isn’t on her radar. So, when her long-time friend asks her to have his baby, her immediate answer is a big, fat hell-to-the-no. Seriously, is he crazy?

West pulls out all the stops in wooing her and with every heated encounter, Stacia finds herself falling a little more for his charm and wit. Oh, and his forearms…yum.

Obligations. Lust. Friendship. Love.

The lines begin to blur as emotions enter the equation and besides, everyone knows you can’t deny your rebel soul.

Devious Lies Blog Tour & Review

Devious Lies - BT banner

“I devoured every delicious word. Absolutely unforgettable.”

—Ava Harrison, USA Today bestselling author

Devious Lies, an all-new intense, slow-burn romance from USA Today bestselling author Parker S. Huntington, is available now!

Devious Lies Cover

“She could enjoy her pretty, perfect world a little longer. Soon enough, everything she owned would be mine.”

Blurb

I had a plan to escape the friend zone.

Step one: sneak into Reed’s room.

Step two: sleep with him.

But when the lights turned on, it wasn’t familiar blue eyes I saw.

These were dark, angry, and full of demons.

And they belonged to Reed’s much older brother.

Four years later, Nash Prescott is no longer the help’s angry son.

I’m no longer the town’s prized princess.

At twenty-two, I’m broke, in need of a job.

At thirty-two, he’s a billionaire, in need of revenge.

Who cares if my family ruined his?

Who cares if he looks at me with pure loathing?

Who cares if every task he assigns me is designed to torture?

I need the money.

Simple as that.

I’ll suffer his cruelty in silence, knowing there’s one thing he wants more than revenge…

My Review

Okay…my friends,  it must be said. You absolutely, positively MUST read this book. Yeah, cause it’s that dang good. This book covers so many genres at one time. So you’ve got Bully romance, Best friends brother, Office romance and age-gap romance. All my favorites all in one fabulous book!  If you read The anti-fling in the Spring Fling anthology, you are already somewhat familiar with Emery Winthrop and Nash Prescott. I was craving more of them, so I was super excited when I saw Devious Lies was coming. Plus I happen to be a super huge Parker S. Huntington fan as well, so this is a win all around. Finding out I was getting to ARC read this Baby was the best day EVER!!!

Emery is the rich girl, the carbon copy of her mom down to her dyed hair. She’s FF’s with the help’s son, whom she also happens to be in love with. One night Em makes a huge mistake and beds the wrong brother, she totally thought it was finally her chance with her long time BFF. Shorty after that event her entire world crumbles. A scandal has ripped apart her small town, leaving families destroyed and financial ruin and devastation in its wake.

Fast forward several years later and this beautiful woman is nothing like the rich, pampered princess, she once was. Living a life most would compare to poverty level, for reasons she keeps hidden. She accepts help from her best friend through a job hook up. She is desperate and that means taking a job working for Nash Prescott, the older brother she slept with, the man whose family lost everything due to the actions of her father. The man who despises her. Would he even allow her to work for him? What will his response be when he sees just how far the mighty have fallen? 

“She could enjoy her pretty, perfect world a little longer. Soon enough, everything she owned would be mine.”

I love Emery, her character is so strong willed, and stubborn. She’s amazing, self-sacrificing, even to a fault. She’s so caring and humble. She just wanted to wright wrongs that she didn’t even commit. I was amazed by her. I’m just in love with her, and  my heart breaks for her. At any time she could have changed her situation by giving into her mother’s demands, but she was too strong for that. I love that she wasn’t backing down from her, from Nash or anybody else. 

Now, Nash. He made something of himself. He went from nothing to everything. He knew deeply some of the ways in which he accomplished that weren’t right but he just didn’t care, or maybe he did, but with his IDGAF attitude you’d never know it if he did.

He tried to tell himself he didn’t feel guilty but that just wasn’t true either. As far as a boss go he was a straight shooter and was gonna tell you what he thought and could care less what you thought, he had no filter and couldn’t give a shit about your feelings. However he was so good to people in the community, he gave back to those less fortunate.

He really was the nicest most generous dickhead around. When Emery shows up working for him, he sees his opportunity to get revenge and information at the same time. This gorgeous cruel boss tries to instantly cut her down and put her in her place. But will she bring him to his knees as well? Has the great Nash Prescott met his match? How well will Nash handle his orders not be followed? She’s really the perfect person to verbally spar with him. My own undergarments melted from the beginning tension between these two. GAH!!

I literally couldn’t put this book down. It had suspense and mystery, the most delicious tension. Characters you love and some you want to hate and have to  root for and love again and I just had to know what was going to happen. There was not a boring moment in the book, and it was a pretty long book. It legit kept me captivated from the first page to the last. I’m definitely marking this in my top reads of 2019! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I have to add a sixth star for my blog rating cause this is definitely one of my top reads of 2019! This is like a Bully/ Best friends Brother / Age-Gap. It has everything you could possibly want!  🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Holy Hot biscuits and Gravy!! Emery and Nash are everything! 🧨 BEYOND HOT Y’ALL💥 🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! IFloved this!! #Perfection

Excerpt

I blinked away the post-orgasm haze as the light flickered on. When my sight cleared and I finally got a look at him, I froze. Shock bulldozed into my body, nearly pushing me back had I not been gripping his flesh.Black spots scattered across my vision, and for a second, I thought I’d faint—and it would still be less mortifying than this.Anything would be less mortifying than this.It was almost too much to process.To make it worse, he was still inside me.This wasn’t Reed Prescott.This was a six-foot-two, hazel-eyed Adonis with short black hair and bedroom eyes that made you picture him naked if you looked long enough. Only he was actually naked and, I repeat, still. Inside. Me.Nash Prescott.Reed’s older brother.His nearly thirty-year-old brother.“You’re soaking my brother’s bed,” Nash remarked as he leaned back against his pillow and took in the sight of me. He looked annoyed, liked I was a pest who had royally fucked up his weekend plans.“You—I—What—” I floundered, my mouth opening and closing like a fish.You slept with Nash Prescott.Nash Fucking Prescott.And it felt amazing.Don’t freak out.Don’t freak out.Don’t freak out.I was totally freaking out.Nash raked his fingers through his hair, leaned over to snatch my robe, and tossed it to me. “Just fucking relax, would you? You’d think the goddamn orgasm would loosen you up.”For a split second, all I could think was, you weren’t always like this.Perhaps to other girls, but never to me.Nash was a fierce protector, the guy who would stop by my table with his brown paper lunch bag when my mom ‘forgot’ to give me lunch money. And while we’d rarely talked, even when he would share his lunch, I always took comfort in knowing I had two protectors—Reed and Nash.I don’t recognize you anymore.The words sat at the tip of my tongue. I would never release them. That was Reed’s hill to die on.I cared because I hated the way Nash stared at me sometimes, accusations stabbing me from his eyes. Snide comments I would never ask him about because I was loyal to Reed, and even talking to Nash felt like picking the wrong side.I wanted to take a few seconds to study Nash, to process my mortification, to enjoy the aftershocks of my first orgasm, yet all I could feel was Nash’s overwhelming gravitational pull, one more dangerous than that of any other boy I’d ever met.But Nash Prescott wasn’t a boy.He was a man.One who made me feel like the little girl I’d convinced myself I wasn’t.My arms slipped through the robe. The second the tie wrapped around my waist, my body solidified. My underwear remained lost somewhere, but at least I was covered.I ignored the sting of his derision, shook my head, and pushed aside the embarrassment. “Did you know?”The sharp accusation unfazed him. He stretched his arms, drawing my attention to the deep V of his body. I clenched around him. A reflex. My mortified eyes flicked up in time to catch his cocked brow.“I figured it out when you moaned my brother’s name while coming around my cock.”

Madness Release Blitz & Review

Title: Madness
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Kailee Reese Samuels
Genre: Dark Romance/Reverse Harem
Release Date: December 17, 2019
As a starry-eyed child, I wanted to believe my shining prince would ride up on a white horse, present a diamond ring, and carry me away to his castle. His love would be endless and our lives would be the happily ever after all girls dreamed about. I never knew the fairytale was nothing more than a lie.
I was a good girl.
Until one night, one tiny trip, one little mistake, one moment of indiscretion. 
When I fell down the rabbit hole, I stumbled into the absolute fantasy, succumbing to their whims and rituals. As their very naughty girl, I embraced the nightmare and refused to ever leave.
The Darkland is mine. 
And those monsters will kneel before their one true Queen.

My Review

I have to say Madness is by far the most dark and insanely twisted retelling of the sinister fairy tales collection so far. At least in my opinion. This book is as its titled… Pure delicious, mind blowing Madness! This take or retelling of Alice in Wonderland will leave you simultaneously blown away as wondering exactly WTF did I just read?!?! 

This is Ellison’s story. She is nothing short of insane. She’s the driver of the crazy train y’all. She started off the book with her insanity and I was like “oh damn,  well we going right to crazy town on the first page, okay, okay.” 
Now IRL Alice and Wonderland isn’t even a fairytale I care for,  But I can definitely get on board with this kinda Wonderland! I mean this is a RH (reverse harem) so it’s a sensual and hot and dirty wonderland. Hells yes! 

I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I will just say… Get ready!! Prepare to fall down a devious, dark and twisted rabbit hole of madness and mayhem. There was so much going on and it was crazy, and chaotic. It was wild and really dark. It will have everyone going just a little mad at least for a minute. I think this is definitely one of those books I could go back and read again and probably catch something I might have missed out on the first time, because there are so many characters and so much happening at one time.

I am just a fan of dark and twisted, so this is right up my alley. This sinister fairy tales collection is amazing and this is a fantastic part of it. Definitely recommend for those who love twisted tales. If RH or blood and gore offends you, then this is most definitely NOT the book for you. But if you are open minded about those things I think you will love this book! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- Totally dark and twisted retelling. Recommend for dark romance fans who also love RH!  🔥🔥🔥🔥-CRAZY RH HOTNESS! 🧨 💥 🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! 🔫Trigger Warning- This book does contain violence, blood, gore and is a Reverse Harem. If you are offended by these things this is Not the book for you!

My Review

Sweet Baby Desus in a manger! Y’all better get ready, because this conclusion is crazy, fantastic! I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that was thrown my way in this book. 

Stolen Lies pics up and follows Talia, Kosta and the Demetriou crew right at a year after the major cliffhanger that we were left with a the ending of Hidden Truths. We finally find out what happened to Talia. The question is…What will Kosta do and say about information surrounding Talia’s disappearance when he comes face to face with the details? Who will be the recipient or recipients of his revenge? Will it be a new enemy or someone he once loved? 

Talia was sweet, innocent, yet sassy in the first book. The Mafia Princess inside her shines in this book. We see a strength in her come out like never before. Sometimes you can find strength in the smallest of packages and that’s what happened here. She found hers. It got her through, gave her purpose and focus, and patience. She knew she needed to plan to escape perfectly to be able to get out of the situation she was in at the beginning of the book.

I loved the Talia we got to see in this book. She was so amazing. She was even more loving and nurturing than in the first book. BUT she was also tough as nails and she had to make some life changing, split second decisions and she did them without hesitation. I think she grew into who she was destined to be in this book. 

Kostas was suffocating himself in so much grief in the beginning missing Talia. That was hard to read. He was pining and letting himself go. I was glad for the realization of just how much he loved her to hit him, but hated it had to happen for him in that way. Now, in this book we get to see glimpses of a much softer side to Kostas. The was he is with Talia, made my heart-a- flutter. Kostas is definitely a character that makes heart rates go up and panties drop. There is something to be said for a man that can touch a woman tenderly with a hand that also was used to end someone’s life. So. Freakin.Hot!  

I don’t want to give anything about this book away. So let me say, this story is a web weaved slap full of lies, secrets, scandal, and sex. It’s about murder, kidnapping, revenge and pure hatred. It’s full of so many suspense-filled moments of pure adrenaline rushing, heart-stopping, nail biting, hubby bring me some wine before I throw my kindle, moments. IT IS OFF THE FREAKIN CHARTS THAT GOOD!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️Dark/Mob Suspense Romance ✔️

Suspense ✔️

Slow Burn ✔️

Steam ✔️

Angst and Revenge ✔️

ALL THE FEELS ✔️

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- There isn’t anything hotter that Talia and Kostas… Maybe like the eighth circle of Hades, but that’s about it. They are hotter than everything and everyone else though , and that’s hot AF!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA! Holy flippin’ flapjacks! Talk about clawing, kicking, scratching, dragging your way through a bullet blazing war zone, just to then walk two miles across hot coals get home to find your home taken out by tsunami. Yeah, it felt like this for this poor couple to get to their well earned HEA! But it wait fast paced so the wait cane quickly! 

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some references to the scene in the first book that could be considered triggers for some. They are not overly graphic. This is a “mobish” book so expect the typical blood and gore that comes with such. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

The Punk and the Plaything Blog Tour & Review

The Punk and the Plaything by B.B. Reid

Release Date: December 9, 2019

Punk Cover.jpg

The Punk and The Plaything, the third romantic standalone in the When Rivals Play series by B.B. Reid.

Never trust a nice ass and a smile. That girl is definitely poison.

When I first came to Blackwood Keep, I was just looking for a thrill.

Instead, I found a beautiful fraud—a tomboy my wildest dreams couldn’t conjure.

Bee didn’t just run with boys; she ran the boys. It was only a matter of time before I gave chase.

My Review

So B.B. had totally it set up in the other books where I was absolutely, unequivocally NOT a Barbette ”Bee” fan. I would go as far as to say I despised her character. I didn’t like her friendship with Ever, I didn’t trust her, just didn’t care for her. I started opening up to her  a little in TMATF, but still. Now… I absolutely love, like fist pumps in the air rooting for her, she’s my new BFF. I’m a “Bee-liever”!

Gah!! Jamie, oh Jamie! His character has been one of my tops from day one. There is something about him. His playful personality, that don’t GAF attitude he puts off, when really he’s one of the most caring people out there. He’s giving off this players vibe and he’s borderline cruel to Bee,  but really he’s just protective of his heart and sweet gooey center, afraid he will be exposed to hurt and risk heartbreak again if he lets his guard down. 

“You kiss me with your cruel words and caress me with your pain.”

Told in alternating POV’s we go back and forth between their senior year of high school and their pre-teen years. We get in-depth looks into the what let Jamie and Bee to be the characters they are today. 

“It’s not your hate that kills me but the love I see shining through.”

It also gives us better understanding why Jamie feels the way he does, and we understand what it was like for Bette growing up and what led to some of the decisions that she and Ever made and why Four would have went along with them. We get to see the story of Jamie and Bee childhood friends falling in love and the hurts, secrets, misunderstandings and devastation that come after. BEE AND JAMIE ARE EVERYTHING! 

While I’m not going to give away any of the details of this book because #SpoilersSuck. I will say I’m pretty sure this one might be my favorite of all. Because…Jamie! Tattoos, piercings, attitude and heart. I mean hot dang, y’all! And Bee, she’s beautiful and sassy and sweet. She’s loving and as it turns out unselfish. This is one of my most favorite series. I cannot recommend it enough. If you haven’t started it. TODAY IS THE DAY! Pick up this Bully/Friends to Lovers Favorite. I would give it all the stars in the sky if I could. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️- I have to add a sixth star for my blog rating cause I just gotta! This is like a Bully/ Friends to lovers romance all in one! Jamie is legit! He’s the most perfect book boyfriend. Tattoos and piercings. He’s just delicious! Plus all your favorite characters are back!

Blog tour teaser.jpg

Excerpt: “Well, isn’t this the most delicious surprise.” My head confirmed what my eyes were showing me, but my stubborn heart still refused to believe. Jamie was back from Ireland? Why hadn’t Ever told me? Neither of those answers seemed to matter as much as why Jamie was back.

The short sleeves of the button up he wore were rolled and bunched at the shoulders, displaying the muscles he’d grown since I’d last seen him four years ago. The white cotton only pronounced his tanned skin. He’d left the buttons undone, allowing anyone who laid eyes on him to see his hard chest and defined abs…and the many tattoos that covered them. Most of them were angry and aggressive, almost scary as if he were showing off his demons for anyone to see. Recalling my sweet Jamie from long ago, and what happened the last time I’d seen him, I knew I was responsible for every one of them. Gone was the gentle boy next door with a full mop of hair, a lanky body, and an easy smile. This boy standing before me was darker, edgier…more tragic to my lonely, fragile heart. Was that yearning burning in the pit of my stomach or fear of the unknown? Because I didn’t know this Jamie, and judging by the wicked gleam in his eyes as he flashed that mocking grin, I didn’t want to know. “What the hell are you doing back here?” “Is that any way to greet your first love? I got to say”—his gaze slowly traced every dip and curve of my body—“I love how well you’ve grown up, Bette.” “First love?” I scoffed, even though it felt like he’d stolen my breath. “You were hardly that.” “Then what was I?” he challenged, backing me against the opposite wall. “I’m breathless to hear more of your lies.”

“You were nothing.” He flashed me that sad, beautiful smile I hadn’t realized I’d missed so much. I stood perfectly still as his wolfish gaze ate me up. As close as he stood now, he wouldn’t miss a single fucking flaw. There were many, but no one dared looked close enough to see. I might as well have been Medusa. As he ran his gaze over me, I took the time to study him as well, noting the silver bar piercing his right brow and the small diamond in his right nostril. I could have sworn I’d even glimpse a flash of metal piercing his nipples. Jamie had taken all that sinful deliciousness he naturally possessed and multiplied it by ten thousand. As if the world didn’t already have enough injustices. “You’re so beautiful. Did it hurt?” He kept his gaze on me as he turned his head and blew out smoke. “Did what hurt?” I could feel the heat from Jamie’s cigarette when he defiantly brushed his thumb across my bottom lip. To Jamie’s knowledge, I belonged to his cousin now, but he clearly didn’t give a damn. “When you fell from heaven, Satan.” I slapped his hand away while telling myself to get a grip. Jamie might have surprised me, but he was nothing I couldn’t handle. “Get lost, Jameson.” Tapping the end of his cigarette, he sprinkled ash onto my designer blouse. A piece of the flame had fallen, burning through the sheer material, scorching my skin. Before now, I’d never thought Jamie capable of hurting me. The truth was now so blatantly blazed into our history that it could never be unwritten. Without warning, he pressed closer until I could see nothing but the angry blackness of his eyes. “I’m afraid I’m not going anywhere. By the time I’m done with you, Barbette Montgomery, you’ll be crawling back to me… but I doubt I’ll want my cousin’s sloppy thirds.”

“I wouldn’t hold your breath.” I wasted little time pushing him away. Tragically, the moment my hand connected with his warm skin, the electricity threatening to make my broken heart beat again became too obvious to ignore. I tried to run from it, but some inexplicable need to seal our fate had me spinning on my heel to face him again. “Better yet, Jameson, do us both the favor, won’t you?”

Insolent Release Blitz & Review

Title: Insolent
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Cynthia A. Rodriguez
Genre: Dark Romance Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: December 9, 2019
There’s a girl screaming at the top of a hill,
Burdened by a duty she was born to fulfill.
There’s a quiet killer lurking nearby,
Watching as she wishes only to die.
She’s tasked by her mother to marry a man,
Until the demon from hell puts a wrench in the plan.
Their fates will twine in inconceivable ways.
But where one goes, the other cannot stay.
How could she fall for such a man, you ask?
For the girl with no heart, it was the easiest task.

My Review

Insolent is a part of the Sinister Fairy Tales collection and a take on Brave. It is the story of Moira and Sol. Moira grew up in a wealthy family, the only girl with horribly cruel triplet brothers. She was abused, neglected and locked away by her family. Set to be arranged to marry a man chosen by her deplorable mother. 

Then an angel or a devil intervenes and saves her from the evil wretches of her family, only to take her as his own prisoner. Moira finds herself torn between her feelings for her captor. Her only comfort is both a gift and skill she possesses with her bow and arrows. She finds herself using her gift to get revenge in ways she had only dreamed. Will Sol be the cause of her demise or is he her savior? 

This book has plenty of secrets and lies. It’s full of blood and gore and angst. While Brave is not a Fairy Tale I’m all that familiar with, and it isn’t my favorite of the sinister collection so far, this was a pretty good re-telling. For me it probably has more to do with the fairy tale itself (since I have never seen or read the original)and not the writer. The writing was great. The details were plentiful and described perfectly as to capture the reader’s attention, the story flowed quickly and I read the book in just a few hours. 

I liked Moira’s character and though my heart was broken for her and her mistreatments, she was actually a tough cookie. Her skills with the bow and arrow were unmatched and she ultimately was able to get her own redemption. GO Moira!! 

Now, Sol. I’m not sure I was prepared for that level of deception. From him and towards him. The rug was definitely pulled out from under me. But I loved his character, he was definitely the bad guy gone good! Their love story was dark and consumed by desperation and loneliness, but it was tragically beautiful. I’m glad Moira found Sol. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐⭐⭐- This is full of details, fast paced and overall a good re-telling. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- The chemistry between Sol and Moira is hot and angry and dark and he’s borderline cruel so that amps up the hotness factor 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No cliffhanger!
