Stealing Cinderella Release Blitz & Review

Title: Stealing Cinderella
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: April 2, 2020
Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me. 
It should have been simple. 
Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity. 
But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected. 
He was dark and intense and eerily quiet. 
When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin. 
He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again. 
Then he came for me. 
And he took me. 
And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived. 
He’s the crown prince of Norway. 
And, now, I’m his captive.

My Review

Holy Sinister Diamond-Studded Slippers!! This retelling was Phe-nom-enal! A.Zavarelli took classic Cinderella and put a modern, sinister, dark, dirty, and deviously-delicious twist on it. She tossed in lots of heartbreaking elements and unexpected moments that hit me right in my feelings and I couldn’t put this book down! It.Was.Fantastic! 

Thorsen Lykken is no ordinary Prince Charming. Tragic events from his past made him the man he is. The reputation he’s earned as an intensely dark and secretive man is an understatement for what truly lies inside this beautifully troubled man. When he meets Ella he is immediately captivated by her innocence and beauty, he’s drawn to her in a way that he’s never been to anyone. He has to have her, so he takes her.

He’s dealing with personal issues and finding it hard to struggle with the balance of conflicts going on inside him. He’s never really dealt with women on his own. However he finds himself very dominant and protective over her where others are concerned. What I loved the most about his character was the amazing transformation we saw. I mean this man was night and day, from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Ella was the beautiful and innocent girl living a pretty sad existence. Walking around with the burden of your fathers death on your shoulders and then being abused and mistreated for years by the only other family you have left, had to have been devastating for her. Finding solace at the animal sanctuary near her home. A one night reprieve gifted to her in the form of an invitation to a ball leads to a chance meeting with Prince Thorsen Lykken that will change her life forever. 

There are many things that happen after which I won’t go into detail so as not to give spoilers. But ultimately those will inevitably end with her ending up at Thorsen’s estate in Norway. Given all that she goes through in the days surrounding her arrival at Prince Thorsen’s estate I found her character to be resilient and tough and just the balance he needed to his rude and rough. Instead of doing what we all expected she did the opposite, she was so loving and caring and couldn’t help but want to fix this broken man, and fell for him hard core in the process. 

“I think I know deep in my soul this is a suicide mission. He’ll never be able to love me back.”

I love this story because it’s such a story of transformation and healing. Now, it’s all kids of devious and dirty and twisted and unexpected and I love that. But I love that the Thorsen we meet in the beginning is not the Thorsen of the end. I love the journey these two broken people went on together. Their love healed each other. It was emotional and angsty and just all around a wonderfully awesome addition to the Sinister Fairytales collection.

Even the town’s black sheep needed a friend sometimes

Southern Storms, an all-new, beautifully emotional and moving standalone romance from Brittainy C. Cherry, is available now!

SouthernStorms AMAZON

All I wanted to do was run away, I never expected to crash into his arms…

After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small town Havenbarrow for a fresh start.

What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep.

They called him troubled. Cold. A man with a dark past.

What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes. The random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching. The way he made me smile and laugh.

Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane.

Yet when both of our pasts come back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes love stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.

Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

My Review

All the Truths was exactly EVERYTHING I was hoping it would be and so much more! My head is spinnin’ y’all! 🤯😳🤯I need a moment to wrap my head around everything this book put me through and gather my words to sum up the amazingness that is this book, the conclusion to this duet. Rina never fails to twist and turn me in knots of awe and wonder at the suspense, heat, and every single emotion she captures in her writing. This was MIND-BLOWINGLY PHENOMENAL!

The conclusion to this duet was the perfection I was hoping it would be. Reina’s character once again proved just how amazingly strong and resilient she is. She is feisty and determined and I loved her perseverance to get the truth. I love how she redefines  what she and Asher were to one another then and what they are now, and they are EVERYTHING! 

Asher is a completely different guy then we first met. The experiences he endured made him the angry, out for revenge man he was, but learning the truths behind everything opened his eyes and brought about a completely new side to him. I loved this softer, more caring side of Asher. Don’t get me wrong, he was still all kinds of Alpha AF in the bedroom. Which makes him the perfect man in my eyes. 

This book answers all the questions we were left with and more. We had unexpected moments of pure madness thrown our way. It was spectacular. Definitely read this duet my friends. Rina is such a talented writer and this is the stunning conclusion I was craving! Grab it today. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- Rina had me captivated from paragraph one. I love the complexity of Asher and Reina’s characters. from one chapter to the next I didn’t know what would be uncovered and the unknown was Ah-May-Zing! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-The heat between them was pure fire y’all! Good gracious. Hot dang! 🔥🔥

My Review

EEP!!! OMG y’all! Butterflies, this book gave me butterflies🦋 and goosebumps! 😍 So, Harlow Layne is MY Queen of 👑 Reverse Age Gap! Hello!! Intern and now The Model! GAH! My heart is so happy, y’all! (She put it through the ringer though. Lol) 

This book is like the perfect unexpected present, it will give you everything you are yearning for and things you didn’t even know you wanted or needed. 🙌🏻 From the second you crack the first page it will keep you hanging on every word. Through dramatic sweet and swoony , to unexpected moments of suspense, Ryder and Lexie’s journey is the most phenomenal rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I stressed, I swooned, I fell so hard for the sexy, sweet and so perfectly matched for each other adorable Ryder and his blue haired beauty, Lexie. BTW ladies,  He’s mine just letting y’all know now! I will share him with Lexie, cause she’s my girl, but nobody else. This cougar’s claiming him! 😏

I’ve got a girl crush!! I FLOVE This woman y’all! 💙 Lexie is this amazingly talented photographer. She’s gorgeous and unique with her blue hair, piercings and tattoos. She’s like a pinup that has no idea she is a pinup. So basically… Lexie is licious, people!!

She is a loving friend, sweet, sassy, independent and successful. When she meets Ryder she is blown away by this amazing man. He is legit EVERYTHING! He did things to her body she didn’t even know were possible. 

She’s had a rough go as of late and it only gets worse before it gets better. Everything with Ryder seemed like they are perfect for each other in so many ways, but will Lexie let insecurities and the stress of her past get in the way of the chance at a future it’s Ryder? When life throws Lexie a curveball how will she respond, and will this change her mind on the decisions she’s made about her future with Ryder? 

Ryder is this phenomenally hot model. He’s sweet and young and fun-loving. But he’s also very mature and polite, he loves his mama and just wants to secure a better financial future for himself and his parents. This guy may be young but he’s far from a kid. This guy is all alpha man. He’s dirty and dominant in the bedroom, and sweet and the perfect gentleman outside. AHHH! Yes, he’s that Yummy of a combo, ladies. And his heart belongs to his “sexy Lexie” or at least he hopes to give her his heart. When Ryder lays his heart on the line for Lexie will she take it, or are there too many miles, years, beautiful models and oceans between them? 

There are most definitely many obstacles that she and Ryder must overcome but they just had this undeniable chemistry from the moment they first met. It was hot and electric and they never stood a chance at not giving into their feelings physically, they were just that flipping hot y’all! But more than that, their emotional connection. I love how Harlow has this ability to write the most amazingly beautifully connected couples. There is always something a little unconventional about her couples. Whether it be life circumstances, appearances, or age difference, she always manages to shock us in some way. Her approach to how her couples handle and grow through their challenges and differences are what makes her books heartwarming, edgy, swoony, suspenseful and at times angsty. But their love always manages to  transcend whatever life throws their way, cause her characters are strong, resilient and above all they LOVE BIG and love should always win!!

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐- Harlow had me from paragraph one. Ryder and Lexie are ultimate couple goals. Age really is nothing but a number. I love her best friend Raine and am eternally grateful for the Ty and Sadie visit 😍😍I FLOVE THEM! 

This is so much bigger than a Five Star Read. 👆🏻(See that extra star) 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-There are not enough words in the dictionary to adequately describe the level of hotness🔥🔥 that you are gonna get with Ryler and Lexie’s love scenes!! 🔥🥵🔥 This is most definitely a Panty Chucker Y’all! (Yup you don’t need em’) 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! *insert sigh of contentment and happiness*🥰 #EndingPerfection

It’s a man’s world.

When I declared sports medicine as my major and every man narrowed their eyes, that saying proved true. It was true when my ex-husband decided I’d give up my career when our daughter was born. And again when I divorced the Chief of Police in our small town, and he made it painfully clear that I could leave him, but I would never be free.

Landing the job as the new athletic trainer for Stratford’s high school team is my chance to start over. And walking into a male-dominated sport and staff, I’m ready for the challenge.

I’m not ready for Jordan Becker.

The head coach of our championship winning team is a Herculean force of nature—as severe as he is determined. His icy blue eyes and permanent scowl drive the women in this town mad, and his quiet power and undeniable command conjure respect from every man.

When I join his team, I expect the doubt and anticipate the fight from him. And I get them both.

I don’t expect to form a friendship.

And I never expect to fall for him.

My breath catches when those cool eyes fall to my lips. My body comes alive when his is near. And as those lines begin to blur, every warning bell sounds.

My job, my reputation are on the line.

And my ex is around every corner, waiting to remind me of his power.

It’s a man’s world, and if I want to survive, I can never fall in love with Jordan Becker.

Even if he falls in love with me first.

My Review

O-M-G guys! This ending to the Becker Boys Series could not have been more perfect! If you told me I had to pick a favorite Becker boy, I’m not sure I could do that either, they are all so different and precious and just so loveable in their own ways. This beautiful angsty love story was one I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Jordan Becker’s story was last , BUT certainly not least. 

Jordan Becker is EVERYTHING! He’s the most amazing football coach, brother, son and person. He is loving and caring and just has this special way about him. He meets his match in Sydney Clark, in every way. She challenged him in ways he didn’t know he needed challenging and was everything he didn’t know was missing from his life and more. For so much of his life Jordan didn’t know exactly where he fit, but he fit with Sydney and her daughter, Paige. Their relationship was precious and it warmed my heart as much as it made me smile. Paige was adorable and funny and I couldn’t get enough of her with Jordan. 

Sydney had been through the ringer, her history while heartbreaking made her the strongest most amazing woman and mother. I was pushing dm for her and Jordan because they just needed each other, they deserved each other. Even when they didn’t know it. I could say so many things about this woman but I don’t want to spoil anything. So I will just say, She.is.phenomenal! 

RBTeaser.png

It was fantastic to have all my Becker’s back together to wrap up this series. So many unanswered questions and prayers finally come to fruition for this precious family. I will just say, Y’ALL, this girl cried. I cried for the end of something that had become so precious to me. For the closure I needed in the most  perfect of ways. Kandi gave me everything I longed for. The Epilogue, GAAHH! I couldn’t be a happier girl! This series is LIFE! Grab it today. 😍🔥🙌🏻🥃😍🔥🙌🏻🥃

 My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️-Must Read Series! Becker’s are one of my all time favorite Book families!! This book had it all, banter for days and off the charts swoony and sexy time, angst galore. All the Becker’s were back in town! 

🔥 🔥🔥🔥- Jordan and Sydney were fire y’all. They were like the delicious burn of a good whiskey, they were straight up yummy! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-HEA. No cliffy! This ending was perfection!🙌🏻🥰😍😘🙌🏻

Take Two Review



Title: Take Two
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: March 19, 2020



Blurb

Who says you can’t marry the same mistake twice?

Certainly not Nya Perez…because that’s precisely what she’s done.

Liam Watts is the bane of her existence.
Her first love. Father of her child. And breaker of her heart.

Oh, he’s also her ex-husband. Well, he was, anyway…right up til this morning, when she woke up beside him in a Vegas hotel room, sheathed in satin and tulle with a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.

If it were just between the two of them, an annulment would be the obvious solution. After all, they wouldn’t be the first to marry and divorce at the little white chapel in the span of twenty-four hours.

But their daughter’s greatest wish has just been granted, and if there’s one heart Nya wants to protect more than her own, it’s Ellie’s.

So, she promises to give it six months.

There’s no way she’ll be swayed by his thick southern drawl, those well-defined abs, or that annoyingly delectable scruff lining his cheeks.

Nope. She’s got it all under control. Six months of playing house, then everything can go back to the way it was before.

But first she’ll have to muddle through marriage with Liam—take two.

My Review

This is the best y’all!! Heather O. does it again! Perfection People! This book is utter perfection! 

Oh the laughter, the banter, the frustration! The deliciously sexy throwdowns! THIS was the combination of everything I was hoping for and as ALWAYS Heather delivers! 

Nya Perez is this sassy, beautiful Latina and I love her fierce determination to resist her irresistible ex, err…well no longer ex-husband. 

Waking up unexpectedly married to her ex-husband, Liam Watts was the last thing she expected the morning after their daughter’s birthday. But not one to be able to disappoint her girl, and at the peer pressure of both Liam And her BFF, Hannah she reluctantly agrees to give the marriage the ol college try for six months. But only for their daughter, right? She can resist Liam’s charms for six months. Prove they are NOT meant for each other and kick his good lookin, texan accent talkin, perfect ab havin, sweet gentlemanly, sexy scruff wearin’ butt to the curb, and go back to the way think are. No problem… right? 

Liam Watts has regretted the way this went wrong between him and Nya for years. When life, fate, birthday wishes and a few too many drinks hands him this second chance, you had better believe he is taking it. When Nya gave him a six month timeline , that was as good as issuing a challenge for this cowboy. 

Deep down Liam knows he messed up, but he has never stopped loving Nya and he knows she has never stopped loving him. He has six months to prove their inevitable connection is supposed to last forever, NOT have an expiration date. He’s not above using whatever he can find in his arsenal to help his cause. AKA that sexy, irresistible smile, or those cowboy abs of steel. He’s ready to throw down wherever and whenever!!

GAAHH! I love this hilarious character y’all! He was so funny, and sweet and caring and oh my god, this man with his daughter. Women everywhere want to make babies with him, ASAP! He was gorgeous, sensitive and sweet, but funny and hot and dirty too. He had a Texas drawl for goodness sakes. Yeah! So in he walks and Panties just drop! 

But will all that swagger sway Nya his way for good this time? 

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️-Another fabulous romantic comedy by Heather. She is absolutely one of my top favorites when I need the perfect “swunexy” book (yes I just made that up folks) swunexy= swoony, funny, and sexy! This had the best characters(All of them, secondary too), banter for days and off the charts swoony and sexy times. This is a MUST READ!  

🔥 🔥🔥🔥-  Liam and Nya are just straight up hotter than biscuits and gravy. Hot as a match on hay in a barn stall. Yup, that.freakin.hot. Like the devil is jealous of the heat, y’all! 😈

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA. No cliffy!!It is perfect! 🙌🏻🥰😍😘🙌🏻

Lock Release Blitz & Review

Title: Lock
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Dark Fairytale Retelling
Release Date: March 17, 2020
Before Zell was born, her fate was sealed.
Held captive in a high-rise overlooking New York City since the age of twelve, she had no friends her own age, no life outside of the penthouse, and absolutely no choices of her own. But what she didn’t realize was the tower where she lost her freedom would one day become her salvation. Her prince would arrive, they would fall in love, and they would come up with a plan for her to escape so they could live happily ever after.
If only it were that easy.
Every girl dreams of her life becoming a fairy tale, even Zell, who’s knowledge of romance was simply from the books she stole from other girls at the brothel.
In a world where sex, drugs, and manipulation is solely the life she knows, the only fairy tale poor Zell would endure would be a sinister one …
Because freedom always comes at a price.
“Now, son”—Frank squeezed Frank Jr’s shoulder—”tonight, you can have any one of these ladies that you want. More than one if you’d like.”
My heart, which had finally returned to its regular beat, felt as though it was cracking in my chest as I listened to what Frank said. Of course, that was why they were here.
“I told you I wasn’t a virgin,” Frank Jr. said in a low voice.
Frank chuckled. “That may be, but any one of these ladies will make sure you’re well taken care of. You might learn some things. It’s your birthday, enjoy it.”
Frank Jr. replied, his voice still low, “Whores aren’t my thing.”
“These are the finest ones around, son. You’ll be in safe hands. Take your pick, and then I can pick mine.”
“And if I don’t?” Frank Jr. asked.
“Then you’ll piss me off,” Frank stated, giving Frank Jr. a stern look.
“I can assure you,” Madam cut in, “all of my girls are clean and well trained. They aren’t like high school girls.” She chuckled.
Frank Jr. looked at his father another moment and then stepped toward the line of girls. He still hadn’t taken a sip of the vodka in his hand, and that made me nervous. I wasn’t sure what Madam would do to me if Frank Jr. asked for something else. Was Grey Goose not a good brand?
Just like Madam had done not ten minutes prior, Frank Jr. walked by each girl, looking them up and down from their heads to their feet and back up. When he got to the end, I expected him to walk back down the line because he hadn’t made a decision yet. Instead, he stopped in front of me, looking back at Frank and Madam. “I choose her,” he said.
My eyes widened as Madam said in a raised voice, “Zell isn’t one of the girls.”
“She’s not?” Frank Jr. questioned and turned his head to look at me.
I lowered my gaze while I waited for Madam to respond. I expected her to say something about me being her daughter, and therefore, off-limits. Instead, she said, “She’s never been with a man before. She wouldn’t know what to do. Pick one of the others. They will show you a good time.”
My face got hot again, and I was certain I looked like a tomato. I couldn’t believe that Madam had told Frank Jr. I was a virgin. I’d read about a virgin once. She met a guy with a helicopter and had weird sex with him. She seemed to like it, but that didn’t mean I was ready for this handsome boy to know I was a virgin.
“Is that true?” Frank Jr. asked as he looked into my eyes. “Are you a virgin?” I nodded, not able to speak. He turned back to Madam and his father. “Then, yes, I want her.”
“She’s not even groomed,” Madam stated to Frank.
“Son, why don’t you pick someone else?”
“With all due respect, Father, you brought me here to, what was it? Become a man? Being a man is choosing who I want to sleep with, and I choose …” He paused for a moment. “Zell.”
The tray I was still holding fell from my grasp and clattered onto the floor. Madam’s gaze snapped to me, and my eyes widened before I quickly bent to pick it up. My heart was beating so fast in my chest that I was certain Frank Jr. could hear it. I kept my gaze on the floor, not able to look at anyone. I couldn’t believe this was happening.

My Review

Lock is a fairly fast paced darker and sinister re-telling of the original Rapunzel by Brothers Grimm.  It is the story of Zell and Frankie. Zell, hardly a princess, but a beautiful girl whose tower is a high rise balcony overlooking New York City. Our prince was more a Mafia prince. Heir to the mafia throne, being groomed to take over the family business. Full of suspense, twists and turns. It will keep you guessing until the very end as to if you will get the outcome you are hoping for. Buckle up baby, it’s gonna be an engaging ride!!  

In this exciting tale you read the story of Zell, who caught the eye of Frankie on his eighteenth birthday when his father brought him to the penthouse to introduce him to parts of the family business he hadn’t known about up until that point. When given his choice of companions for the evening he sets his sights on the beautiful and innocent Zell. 

While spending time with her secrets are uncovered and plans are made. In order to rescue Zell, Frankie will have to go head to head with his father and deceive everyone he’s ever known. Will Frankie be able to save his princess Zell or will his father and the evil Saffron keep her locked in her tower?! 

Zell is innocent and beautiful. She has been locked in this penthouse her entire life. It’s all she’s ever known. Although her mother is cruel,she has formed a bond with the other girls that live there. 

When Frankie and his father show up she starts to question everything she’s ever known. When Frankie promises to come back and rescue her from her tall tower, is he telling the truth or is he as untrustworthy as his father and everyone else in this deviant world? He has shown her respect and care so far, but when secrets are revealed and her world comes crashing around her, will Frankie be her Prince who rescues her or a villain just like his father? 

This Sinister Fairytales Collections series is the best, people. With that said, I have definitely liked some of the re-telling more than others, and this was one of them. This was a take I wasn’t quite expecting but I liked where she went with it, and I’m glad that we are going to get some more from this world in a future book. This book was the perfect length and it kept me engaged and entertained. It had suspense, mystery, good character development. All in all I was a happy girl so I flew right through it.

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- Overall this was a good read! Lock was another great addition to the Sinister Fairytales Collection. I loved Frankie and Zell as well as Quinn, Jackie and  Erin. I’m so glad we are getting Erin and Richardo’s story in Deliverance.

🔥🔥- There was some chemistry between the main characters, but due to their ages and the subject matter, it really didn’t allow for much sensual contact! There was one scene, but it wasn’t what I would call a super hot scene but any means. I don’t want to give spoilers. Their kisses were chemistry filled. So there was that. But remember these characters are 18 and this deals with some heavy subject matter. So this was appropriate for this book! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA. No cliffy!! Our mains did get a perfect HEA 😍 We will also be getting another book from secondary characters you met in this world!

Blurb: She was never supposed to walk into my club. But she did. I shouldn’t have looked twice at her. But I did. The criminal underworld is no place for a girl like her.

When she goes into hiding, it’s my duty to hunt her down. I have a job to do, and she needs to disappear for good. But four years later, Kat isn’t alone anymore. And the little boy right beside her looks just like me. Mine is book one of The Ties That Bind, an all-new dark mafia romance from A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight.

My Review

WOW, my friends! I did a super squeal of excitement when this hit my kindle. I knew from the blurb and the fact that it was written by an amazingly talented duo like A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight, that we were in for greatness. I was not disappointed. This book is dark, raw, sinister and gritty. It will grab you from the very beginning with this phenomenal combination of unbelievably hot tension and edge of your seat suspense. Get ready to be simultaneously fanning yourself and frustrated. 

Levka Antonov was both her Prince Charming and her Villian. He was gorgeous and god like with his power. He was as delicious as he was dangerous. He was feared! When he wanted something he got it, and he decided that he wanted Katerina to be his “Katya.” They hit it off and it was everything more than even he could have predicted! He knew she was hiding things but he had ways of getting to the bottom of it and he would find out exactly who and what she was hiding.

When something in his business goes down and Katerina disappears, Lev is both concerned and angry at her for disappearing. There are a lot of speculations and distrust surrounding her from his Family business associates, will he abide by the orders he’s given when her location is discovered after a few years? However, will an unexpected secret game changing curveball Katerina has been carting with her for three years, throw a monkey wrench in all of Lev’s plans? Just how exactly will Lev punish her?

“I’m taking back what’s Mine”

Katerina Blake was a beautiful broken and poor young woman,  but she’s hiding a troubled and scarred past beneath first glance. One no one could even imagine. She was such a strong and resilient character. I loved her so much. My heart broke for the little girl she’d been and what she endured as a child, but it fist pumped at the strong kick ass woman she’d become. Now, when she met Lev, it was a collision of hotness y’all. Good god!

Their chemistry was overwhelming. She was strong but he brought out a submissive side to her that she didn’t know existed, holy hell! 🔥 She would do anything he said. She fell hard and fast, understandably so. But when a devastating tragic event happens and he is to blame on the same day she finds out life changing news. She must do what she needs to protect more than just herself.

She could have cowered but she didn’t. She did what she had to. She is the kind of character I FLOVE, my friends! She goes through all the emotions and through such growth as a character and it makes for such an amazing read. You get to see her at her lowest then go to seeing her in her most protective and survival mode. She.is.just.fantastic! 🙌🏻😍🙌🏻

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- This book is all you could want in a Mafia/Second Chance/Secret Baby Romance. It captured everything I was looking for and more. 

It was so full of secrets, lies, action. It was full of suspense, angst, GAH the sex! My heart was on edge the whole time! 💔 Everything going on, fabulous!! These characters are fantastic and complex and I’m dying for “Him”

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! Their encounters were SO.FREAKIN.HOT!! Lev is Alpha AF and made Katerina submit in the hottest of ways. Fanning and dying, fanning and dying🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- 🌪🌪🌪HOLY CLIFFHANGER! You will NOT get resolution in this book! Book two is coming!! 😳🤯😳🤯

WITHOUT YOU Release Blitz & Review

Title: Without You
Author: Marley Valentine
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2020 Cover Design: PopKitty Design Photographer: Wander Aguiar Models: Jacob Cooley & Luke Schaeffer
“Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.”
Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.
Until everything changed. 
Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be. 
Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed. 
Not on another person.
Not on another man.
Not until him.

My Review

Oh Y’all!! So, I was super excited for this book. I was thinking GAH I mean you can read the blurb and it pretty much sounds like this book is gonna be all kinds of forbidden goodness right? But my friends,  this book, this fantastic, beautifully epic book, was beyond any and all expectations I could have ever even imagined. The feelings and emotional journey Marley will send  you on with this book is soul-stirring and powerful. The way this book will grab your heart on the first page, AHH😭 I’m just never going to be the same. 

Broken-hearted, defeated and devastated. Deacon and Julian have a story that will both decimate and then heal your heart and soul. This is a poignantly powerful story about the love and healing they found in each other. It was about two broken souls recognizing their perfect counterparts in the most unlikely of places, at the most inopportune time. The kind of inevitable love that even though it went against logic and reason, what should and shouldn’t have drawn them to one another bond them in ways neither could have ever expected.

There was something cathartic when they were together, it was as if all was right in the world, it’s why they had to be meant for each other. They way they could tap into what the other so desperately needed at that moment and to be just that. 

I’m a firm believer that there is something to be said about the after effects of what happens to you after a book absolutely, utterly wrecks you. That cleansing feeling that only comes after you have bawled and sobbed until your huffing and snotty( not pretty but it happens) But when all is said and done and your author has broken you into a million pieces, you have cried all the tears until you have none left to cry, and she’s put you back together, you sigh and know that everything is as it’s supposed to be. She did it! She broke you, and she put you back together. Now, you do know you won’t be 100 percent the same, because long after these characters will stick with you, because that’s what those types of books do.THIS is one of those books, Deacon and Julian will be here in my heart long after I finished this book. Their story is the ultimate story of where love triumphs all, love wins. Love is EVERYTHING! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐-  I urge you to please take a chance on this book. If you never tried a MM or if MM isn’t your usual genre give this a go. Marley Valentine is a master and you will find yourself so caught up in this amazing love story you won’t care or it won’t matter whether it’s MM or MF it’s just a tragically beautiful love story. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-It is hot!! 🔥 There is so much temptation and at first the try to fight it between them, that it can’t help but to be off the charts hot?!?! Yup, so so  HOTT!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA 😍♥️😍

EXCERPT

“Why do you hate me so much?” If you do, why the hell are you engaged to me?“Might have to do with how much of a bitch you are.”“Oh, I’m sorry.” I smile. “Did I steal your title, asshole?”He pauses, head tilting to the side. “What did you just call me?”“A-S-S-H-O-L-E.” I continue smiling, taunting him. “Do you want me to spell it for you again—”My words cut off when he’s at my face, kneeling on the bed in front of me. His hand wraps around my throat like a shackle. He’s not squeezing, but the firm grip is enough to restrict my air supply and my thoughts.A frightening chill forms goose bumps along my skin as I stare at his darkened, merciless eyes.The sense of bravery I gained a few seconds ago evaporates into thin air. My shoulder blades snap together as if telling me I should be scared.This is a scary person.He’s fucking terrifying.The need to run away from him hits me again, clawing under my skin and pumping in my blood.“You seem to be taking your amnesia game way too seriously, so let me remind you of how it goes.” His thumb rubs my jaw like a lover’s caress when in fact it’s a Grim Reaper’s kiss.It’s cold.Everything about him is freezing.My pulse roars in my ears like a distant thunderstorm.He’s invading my space like a natural disaster, impossible to stop or prevent.Still, I manage to choke words out. “You think this is a game? What type of person pretends to have lost their memories?”“The type who doesn’t want people to know what they’ve done.”“What I’ve done?”“Shhh. Don’t talk.” He presses his thumb to my lips, and I can’t help the pulses taking flight under my skin. “When I speak, you listen.”

My Review

Yes, Yes, Yes!! Twisted, Astonishing, Unputdownable! This book will take everything you think you know about bully romance and knock you on your fanny! Nothing about this book was predictable. NOTHING! From the start I was on the edge of my seat. This book was slap full of insane, intriguing and the most mind-bendingly mysterious moments.

Forget adulting or anything else from the moment you start because I assure you… You.Won’t.Stop.Until.It’s.Done!! Then you will continue to check and scream out in frustration to see if more pages will magically appear!!

Reina is unexpected, she is a contradiction to everything you expect and you can’t help but to feel every emotion she is as she is going through it. The frustration she’s enduring as she discovered who she was through the eyes of others. Wow! Just Wow! That’s all I can and will give you. 😘 It leaves you feeling as perplexed as she is, you love and hate her as much as she does herself! I happen to love complex characters like herself and love the brilliance Rina displays when writing them! 🙌🏻 Ah-May-Zing!

Asher is the hot, popular, angry playboy. But something had to contribute to that deep rooted anger right? The way he acts towards his fiancé is confusing and frustrating, but it’s also hot, and sometimes scary. I love the mystery surrounding what’s driving him. He is baffled at times by Reina’s behavior but doesn’t trust her for anything. I’m so excited to see what’s coming in book two. Like I’m dying for this conclusion y’all!

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐-  Rina Kent is the dark and mysterious queen. She never fails to deliver something that will leave us gasping for more. I was captivated and spent from a myriad of emotions this book ran me through, and I loved every heart dropping moment! I don’t know how I will make it until the next book. I need the conclusion, it’s like an obsession at this point. Lol 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-There is nothing extremely off the chain hotter than some Hate Sex!! 🔥 am I right?!?! Yup, so HOTT! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 TOTAL Cliffhanger! This is a duet and you WILL NOT reach resolution in this book!!
