Her Reluctant Husband Release Blitz & Review

🔥🔥HOT NEW RELEASE🔥🔥

HER RELUCTANT HUSBAND by Erica Marselas is LIVE!

I would do anything for my family, including marrying a man who hates me.

Not like I had a choice when the person who helped raise me tells me who I must marry in order to save my home. 

When I came face to face with Alex Wilks again, the man who despises me and wishes I never stepped foot back into Kinder Falls after the day I left, I didn’t know what I was in for. 

Alex was the boy I once idolized, but later, he became the man that broke my trust. 

Both of us are reluctant to dig into the lies and secrets surrounding the night that broke us apart. 

Because it might end up being the truth that destroys us.

One year. 

We just have to survive one year.

The only thing is, we both have so much to lose.

But maybe everything to gain.

My Review

This is without a doubt the most emotionally raw story Erica Marselas has written to date. This story literally broke me, so many times over before I began to heal right along with Alex and June. My emotions were put through the wringer with this second chance, enemies to lovers, forced marriage story that had me pouring out all my tears. 😭 I was filled to the brim with excitement,  devastation, hopes for healing, love, and forgiveness. One of the things that fascinated me with this story was that It was SO different from anything else she had ever written before, proving that that there doesn’t seem to be ANYTHING she cannot write, and she absolutely CRUSHED IT!! 

Told in dual POV, which is my favorite, Alex and June’s story goes back and forth between the past when June was just nineteen years old and present time, five years later. We quickly learn that June is hiding devastatingly dark secrets and trauma. She has been suffering in silence for years, the only bright spots in her life being Alex, her bff Kathleen and their aunt Liz. Just when they were on the path to getting all they had ever wanted and being together, Alex and June lost everything they were just starting to build after one unforgivably tragic event forever altered the course of all of their lives. 😭😱😭

My heart just broke for June. GAH! The tears I cried. To go through all she had over and over, only to lose everything and be blamed for things that were never her fault. It was more than most anyone could have endured. I loved how somehow she was able to pick herself up by her bootstraps and begin to heal, proving she was so much stronger than even she could have ever guessed she had the capabilities to be. How somehow through the anger, hurt,and resentment she helped both Alex and herself heal and move forward together. 💔

Alex was always meant to be the great love of June’s life but I hated him as much as I loved him at times. Everytime he was nasty it broke me, but deep down I understood his misplaced anger. Alex and June were a collection of misunderstandings and that caused them to hurt each other over and over. I was hoping against all hope that they would both pull their heads out of their fannies and get it together. 

I was in awe with Erica’s ability to incorporate characters so much into the story without them actually being present in the scenes. You will understand that more when you read it. But they had such strong influences over Alex and June, both good and bad. I loved it. It made it both funny and shockingly emotional. Like they had someone watching over them that anticipated their steps WAY before they even knew what they were doing, and boy they needed that kick in the pants to get past the past. 😉

Erica did such a great job in June and Alex’s characters. While they are frustrating and flawed, on their own, together they were perfectly imperfect and there was something just so right in the world when they finally got their crap together. Like the heavens opened up and angels sang down.  

Now heed my warning if you have triggers!! This book deals with some heavy subject matter, some serious PTSD and past trauma. If you get through that though there is such a beautiful story at its core. A story of hope, healing, overcoming devastating trauma, and forgiving the hurts inflicted on you by the person you love most in the world. Filled with just the right blend of humorous, and steamy moments to balance the tear jerking and wanna chuck your kindle moments, this book will run the gamut of your emotions and you will love EVERY.SINGLE.SECOND!! 🤗🤗🤩🤩

My Review

OMG!! OKAY! I am positively sure this just took the spot as my number one favorite Holly Renee book and now I am on pins and needles for book 2. I need it like I need air, like a fat girl needs cake, like a drifter lost at sea with no horizon in sight. I need to be put out of my misery because I just fell in Insta love, to hate, in lust, back in love then to heartbreak. All that magic in the span of the few hours it took me to devour this fantasticness.

This book was a literary bouquet of all the things I love about reading. I couldn’t contain my butterflies during their first chance meeting. Then Holly went and turned it up and all that enemies to lovers golden goodness started pouring out and shredded my poor heart. 💔Beck and Josie’s story is addictive and woo hoo, GLORY B, it’s not done being told. I am so not ready to let them go. 🤗From page one my fate was sealed and I was OBSESSED with this story. GAH!! I got it bad for my boy Beck.

Holly crafted the most perfectly phenomenal star crossed enemies to lovers tale filled with secrets, lies, and deception at the hands of the wealthy, elite, and entitled youths of this gorgeous seaside town. I have a feeling book one has just barely scratched the surface of all Holly is planning to throw at us and I for one can’t wait! This was unputdownable. Fair warning this book does end on a cliffhanger but it’s so frustratingly good. 

Cr8zysock  Breaks it down for y’all!  

Six ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Sinfully dark and Swoony Stars! This book full wealth, power, and privilege, sex, lies and mystery! It has IT ALL! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥Beck and Josie are hotter than the seventh circle of Hades. Hotter than a cast iron skillet straight out of the oven. So really freakin Hot Y’all!

🌪 THAT CLIFFY THOUGH, y’all🌪 I am so wondering what’s going to happen?!

Make You Beg Release Blitz & Review

“Deliciously dark, steamy, and full of suspenseful twists and turns, this book kept me up ALL NIGHT. ” Siobhan Davis. USA Today bestselling author

Make You Beg, a dark bully romance standalone from bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!

To the world, she’s known as Henley Greene.
To me, she’s a little doll— a toy to be played with and tossed to the side once no longer wanted.
She will pay for her betrayal however I deem necessary.

Imagine living in a constant nightmare where you have no control. Running from someone or something, you can hear him getting closer and feel his breath on your neck. You know that no matter what you do, he’s going to get you.
He will win.
But I don’t have just one. I have four.
Ryan Scout, Van Rellik, Dax Monroe, and Grayson Law are the Reapers of Westbrook High, my ex-best friends, and now my biggest enemies. They run the school and own this town. They want nothing more than to make me pay for what I saw that night at Death Valley. A sick and twisted game that leaves me dirty and bruised with torn clothing.
So how did I fall in love with one?
I was raised to fear the dark side, but he showed me it was in the dark where the truth came to light. He played with me until my body craved his touch. I was going to prove I could be his most trusted servant in every form of the word. Whether kneeling before him or lying on my back, my sole purpose in life was to be his.
But when you’re a toy everyone likes to play with, you’re bound to end up broken.

Make You Beg: A Dark Bully Romance was previously published in the Bully Me: Class of 2020 Anthology but has now been reworked and expanded into a new full-length story.

MY REVIEW

Holy Sh-Wait What in the World?!!!

This book is amazing beyond my ability to convey with enough words. Make You Beg by Shantel Tessier was all consuming and addictive. It drew me into this intriguing dark, and dangerous world that Shantel created and I never WANTED TO LEAVE.

GAH!! What a sexy and twisted mind trip. So many times I probably should have been like “what in tarnations is happening?” But these scenes grabbed a hold of me more.

This book will have you guessing from moment to fast paced moment. I had theories upon theories running through my head about what might be around the next corner. Yet, it still had my jaw dropping each and every time. Shantel absolutely swept the rug out from underneath this girls feet and I freakin loved it!! 

If you love all the sexy, dark, dangerous, and deliciously mysterious. GRAB THIS BOOK!! 

This is the bully romance you MUST NOT MISS! 

I really can’t say anything about what happens or anything about the characters personalities because I won’t deprive you of this experience. It was truly an unforgettable reading experience. It read like a movie with such vivid details I saw every sight, smelled every smell and my heart sped up, grew cold, and broke right along with these characters.  This book was hot and sexy, it was cold and calculating, it was unexpectedly shocking and it.was.perfect. I am OBSESSED! I would do anything for some more from this world. It’s phenomenal! 

Infinite number of stars for this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Be ready to fan yourself because OMG the heat🔥🔥🔥🔥

Private Property Release Blitz & Review

Private Property

by Skye Warren Publication Date: March 9, 2021 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Purchase: Amazon US | Amazon INTL | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Google Play When I signed up for the nanny agency, I didn’t expect a remote mansion on a windswept isle. Or a brooding billionaire who resents his new role. His brother’s death means he’s now in charge of a moody seven year old girl. She’s lashing out at the world, but I can handle her. I have to. I need the money to finish my college degree. As long as I can avoid the boss who alternately mocks me and coaxes me to reveal my darkest secrets.

My Review

This book had a dark and mysterious vibe going on throughout the entire thing that kept you thinking that around every single corner something was coming your way. I love that! 

Wow! I actually didn’t know all that much what I was going into with Private Property other than it was a nanny/employer romance and I was like sign me up!! Forbidden stories like this intrigue me like no other.

I could not get enough of the dark and grumpy disposition Beau was rocking. It just made him even hotter. I just know we have barely scratched the surface of the secrets this man has buried. Man…all the theories that are running through my head right now. 

Jane is precious. Overcoming such a childhood as she had, I instantly fell in love with her situation, her heart and wanted her to get all the goodness life has to offer. She’s the sweet and beautiful girl who doesn’t know just how beautiful she was. Humble, sweet, sexy and loving. I love characters like her. She’s just good as gold. Boy is she hot for Beau though!! 

I will warn you now, this book ends on one heck of a cliffhanger. But if you don’t mind that, grab this book. 

This is a solid Four Star read for me ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 

The tension and banter between them earns it three steamy flames. 🔥🔥🔥

Cliffhanger warning 🌪🌪

Mourning Wood Release Blitz & Review

 
 
Title: Mourning Wood
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: March 4, 2021
 
BLURB
She’s hard up.
He’s just hard…
 
After an ill-fated one-night stand, Wyatt Landry was the last person I ever expected to see again.
 
By design, mind you, as I spent the last two years avoiding him.
 
He was only ever meant to be a good time—a really good time—and now, thanks to one teensy little mistake, he’s back in my life and wielding an entirely different set of tools.
 
It’s not like I intentionally hired a bogus contractor to redo our chapel, and Lord knows I never imagined Wyatt would ride up in his pickup truck, like a knight in thigh-hugging blue jeans, to save the day.
 
But here he is, and to make matters worse, he’s every bit as charming as I remember, and before I can fully process his reappearance in my life, he has my six-year-old daughter wrapped around his finger, my parents eating out of the palm of his hand, and my best friend shipping us like we’re some celebrity couple.
 
Thankfully, working in the death industry, I’ve mastered the skill of compartmentalization. Keeping my growing feelings tucked away should be a piece of cake. Except, seeing him every day definitely throws a wrench in that plan.
 
Before I know it, we’re trading favors for dates, and as much I don’t want to admit it, the feelings for him I thought were dead and buried are taking root and growing into something that looks a lot like love.
 
Daigle Family Funeral Services… don’t be caught dead any place else.

My Review

Shut the flipping front door y’all! In typical Heather M. Orgeron fashion this book will have you dying laughing. Okay, so maybe not literally dying. But if it did our heroine could totally handle that situation because she’s the hottest funeral director EVER!!

Whitney and Wyatt had me in unstoppable laughter, break my face smiles, and fanning myself because they were hotter than cremation chamber. Their banter was off the charts. The ways in which Whitney did her best to avoid giving into her feelings for Wyatt, and the ways in which he bided his time because he knew she was his from the moment he saw her again, unforgettable. He was so swoony, and sexy. Every damn thing about him was just so dang delicious. I couldn’t help but to love how offended and betrayed she felt at how accepting her family was to Wyatt. Everyone just loved him. 

I was addicted to the strong and beautiful glue of the family and the family business, Whitney. She was an amazing daughter and mother to her little girl, who stole every scene she was in. I was a bit scared when I first started and realized we were reading about a family that ran a funeral home and quickly had flashbacks of My Girl and  poor sweet Thomas J. 😭 Y’all… this was nothing like that. Every line was crafted to make you smile, to make you laugh out loud, and fun flirty moments guaranteed to melt your heart and your kindle. The heat between these two… rivals that of a summer night in New Orleans. 🔥 

From Whitney and Wyatt to best friends, family and flying squirrels. 🐿 All of the the details of the secondary characters, whom I absolutely LOVED btw, was perfectly penned to have us addicted from the first page until we finished. I wasn’t ready to let them go, but I truly loved the ending. This is most definitely a story I will read again when just I’m looking for a day of much needed laughter.

Tequila Rose Release Blitz & Review

 

Tequila Rose by Willow Winters is now live!

 

He tasted like tequila and the fake name I gave him was Rose.

Four years ago, I decided to get over one man, by getting under another. A single night and nothing more.

I found my handsome stranger with a shot glass and charming but devilish smile at the end of the bar. The desire that hit his eyes the second they landed on me ignited a spark inside me, instant and hot. He was perfect and everything I didn’t know I needed. That one night may have ended, but I left with much more than a memory.
Four years later, and with a three-year-old in tow, the man I still dream about is staring at me from across the street in the town I grew up in. I don’t miss the flash of recognition, or the heat in his gaze.

The chemistry is still there, even after all these years.

I just hope the secrets and regrets don’t destroy our second chance before it’s even begun.

My Review

Oh my heart. Tequila Rose by Willow Winters is this amazing book that is a quasi-love triangle book that will change the way you think of love triangles. Even the most cynical of love triangle protesters should give this book a try because the circumstances surrounding the ways everything happens makes this feel different from any other love-tris I’ve read. It’s got so much heart and feeling. I was drawn in and addicted from the first page. Invested in the amazing characters Willow had perfectly crafted for us. 

You will find yourself frustratingly torn between the old and the new. Wondering what the intentions are between these men that have such strong holds on our precious love. 

This is the story of Magnolia, her highschool sweetheart, Robert who broke her heart and sent her flying into the arms of Brody after way too many drinks.  Deciding to toss out a BS name, Rose, just to be anyone other than who she is for one night, their connection is undeniable and electric. However that night turned out to be the single most simultaneously worst and best of her life. I’m not gonna give any more details than that because #SpoilersSuck! 

When the gorgeous stranger she thought she would never see again shows up in her home town for work it most definitely throws Magnolia for a loop. She runs out of the lunch bistro so fast it’s like she’s being chased by a swarm of bees. She is so not ready for a reunion she never thought would come. 

Brody is so excited about the prospect of starting over in a new town in a new business venture with his best friend. When he thinks he spots the beautiful girl who still haunts his dreams from four years ago, he surely must be mistaken. A chance run in at lunch and He learns that not only is it his Rose, but she does NOT want anything to do with him now. He makes it his mission to find out everything about the girl the townspeople refer to as “Magnolia.” But is he really ready for the surprise she has in store for him? 

Five Fantastic Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for This book is full of meddling townsfolk, dreamy episodes of happenstance. Lot’s of fan yourself flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥for this  Sexy, swoony and sweet times. Banter for days and leaves you with lots of mystery, that 🌪 CLIFFY THOUGH y’all,🌪 wondering what’s going to happen. Grab this beautiful and emotional must read today!!

 

Meet Willow


I started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read romance novels and I read everything I could get my hands on. I would read a book a day — sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have connected with so many readers.

And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I’ll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my littles during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a reader and it motivates me to push through and keep writing. I couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful career.

Close Quarters Release Blitz

My boyfriend’s billionaire boss always gets what he wants.⁣

Menacingly handsome and unquestionably powerful, Theo Whitman need only snap his fingers to have a flock of supermodels fall at his feet. So when his steel gray eyes first meet mine, I expect him to pass right over me, to not give so much as a second thought to my presence.⁣

Instead, he sees me. ⁣

Truly sees me. ⁣

And for a girl who prefers to hide behind her camera lens, it’s the most unnerving experience of my life.⁣

Until he asks me to stay on his yacht for the summer.⁣

All I have to do to earn my keep is be Theo’s on-call photographer when he has guests, and I’ll get a free ride through the Mediterranean with my boyfriend. Easy peasy.⁣

Still, my skin prickles in warning when I say yes.⁣

As the humid days fade into balmy nights, I can’t seem to avoid Theo. And when he finds me, it’s like a rabbit running into a wolf.⁣

His intense gaze immobilizes me. The way he speaks strips me bare. Every brush of his skin sears me like a violent flame.⁣

My boyfriend’s billionaire boss always gets what he wants.⁣

And this time, I think he wants me.

My Review

Holy cow y’all! I was NOT expecting what we got with Close Quarters. This book was phenomenal and then some. It had a dreamy billionaire, an off the chain luxury Yacht, gorgeous Mediterranean locations, a super shy and sweet heroine, the unlikable characters and plenty of ANGST. This does not even begin to sum up how cool this unputdownable book was though. Aspen and Theo’s story is anything but predictable in this new take on the billionaire romance trope. 

Aspen Dawn is a truly remarkable character. This twenty-two year old recent college graduate is sweet and unselfish, humble and extremely beautiful. Yet she has no Idea. From behind her lens she is too used to looking at the beauty and wonder the world has to offer that she misses what she herself brings to the world. What was supposed to be a few quick snap shots of the yacht her boyfriend, Joel will be spending the summer on before she takes off alone on a trek across some of the Mediterranean most beautiful locations to build her photography portfolio, quickly changes into a life changing opportunity when she takes a picture of Theo Whitman. One look at Aspen and her photos and Mr. Whitman insists she join his crew for the summer as his on call onboard photographer.  What seems like the perfect summer gig for Aspen and Joel to be able to see the world together and get paid to do what they both love, becomes anything but. As day by day things with her outgoing party loving Joel are not quite she expected and introverted Aspen finds herself drawn to Theo instead. The angst factor is real my friends as Aspen battles her unexpected growing feelings for Theo and grapples with the guilt of her diminishing feelings for the boy she’s loved for years.  

“You are the voice I’ve always been afraid to have.” Theo held me closer. “And you are the life I’ve been waiting to live.”

Theo Whitman could have any woman he wanted. Though since the moment he laid eyes on the  breathtakingly shy photographer, Aspen Dawn, all he can think about is her and what he can do to make her his. Finding every way in which he can, Theo starts showing Aspen things she’s only dreamed of, while also seeing parts of her no one else had ever bothered to take the time to. He sees Aspen. Amazing, unselfish, giving, loving Aspen. He loves seeing the wonder in her beautiful face discovering the most magnificent parts of the world and knowing he’s the one to give her the experiences. He just can’t help but to with he could make her see what’s right in front of her and make her realize she deserves so much better, and he wants to give it to her.    

“Of all the yachts, in all the seas, in all the world, she walks onto mine.”

From the magical locations, Kandi Steiner spared none with her descriptions, making me envision every sight, smell, and color in vivid details. Discovering the wonderment along with Aspen, I felt like I was right there on the ship with them. To the secondary characters, some who definitely captured my heart, some I wanted to throttle for daring to treat my Aspen as they dared to. To the undeniably explosive chemistry between Aspen and Theo. I was addicted to every.single.word. 

Even with the circumstances surrounding her relationship status I DIDN’T CARE. Though I am not actually that bothered by books that contain cheating. I would never do that but find it to be exciting and angsty and so freaking hot in a story. The allure of the forbidden will always tempt me. Add in the change at getting discovered and OMG I’m sold. However this is not a typical cheating scenario and I would say even if that bothers you to still give this a chance. It’s not at all what you will be expecting. It’s beautiful and romantic and sensual and wicked hot. 🔥I’ve never read two characters that were more inevitably perfect for one another and I was hoping, praying, yearning beyond all else that they would find a way to be together. Damn the consequences. A love that meant to be shouldn’t cause destruction of any kind. This is most definitely a MUST READ. It is unlike any other Kandi Steiner book I have read. An infinite amount of Stars for this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ And Four Fan yourself cause it’s so flipping hot flames! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

When We Met Release Blitz & Review

When We Met by Marni Mann is now live!

If you knew beyond all doubt that one chance encounter would change the course of your future, what would you choose?

There’s nothing like a spring day in Boston to make your heart sing. I’m out with my girls, having drinks in a bar, enjoying the bright pulse of our beautiful city, when I see Caleb. The second my eyes meet his, I know this is the moment when everything will change. All I have to do is choose him.

I meet Whitney on the worst day of my life. I’ve always been an adrenaline junkie, but I never knew how fast things could change. Her soft gaze melts my cynicism, makes me forget the bitter man I was becoming. She makes me want to be the version of myself that I see in her eyes. All she has to do is choose this life.

When We Met takes Whitney and Caleb on the ride of their lives, hitting every note on the scale of beauty and tragedy along the way. USA Today best-selling author Marni Mann will make you question everything you thought you knew about love and fate, and this unforgettable story will leave you certain that destiny always finds a way.

My Review

When we Met by Marni Mann happens to be the first story I have read by this author but I can guarantee it will not be my last. This story is about Whitney and Caleb’s remarkable journey to love. This book is intriguing, unexpected, full of mystery, heart-wrenching emotion and lots of amazingness to keep you guessing. 

Told in dual perspectives you will find yourself emersed in Caleb’s detailed account of their first meeting on a day they forever changed things for everyone. Gorgeous, successful, daredevil, Caleb who’s life changes in the blink of an eye. What started as the worst possible day of his life led the best possible thing that ever happened to him, he met Whitney. When things changed so drastically for Caleb he found immeasurable strength in Whitney. As well as his soul mate. 

Whitney’s account started out on the same day of the year, but the details are so different. She brings you to wonder What would happen if we got a redo on the day We Met would we take it? Or What if you the reader could choose the outcome.  

I was so glad with the way this book went. I was terrified, heartbroken and absolutely devastated for a few minutes. But I am so glad this author took the path she did. It kept us the readers on our toes, but we are definitely happy with the wrap up we got.  You have to have the utmost respect for a book that cuts you to your core, has you hanging on every word, and my you fall so so incredibly deeply in love with his characters. 

This may have been my first Marni Mann book but it most definitely won’t be my last. 4 Fantastically Fabulous Stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️

He’s right in front of me, but he’s just as remote as my dreams of getting away from my stepbrothers. I keep playing his twisted games, and I want to stay just as distant as he is. But I can’t. I never could. I’ve fallen for him. Hopelessly. Irrevocably.But Winston isn’t a lover, he’s a business venture.A way for me to pay for college.A ticket out.He’s never pretended to be anything other than that.I can’t blame him for making me fall in love.There can be no happily ever after between a maid and a prince, no matter what the stories say.

My Review

Winston, as charming and gorgeous as ever and his maid Ash Elliott his “Cinderelliott.” his perfectly filthy perverse partner. I think it is obvious that both have much growing feelings for the other, but only one is  more comfortable owning that they do.

You will be instantly allured by Ash and her foul mouthed fairy god daddy as they continue on with their money making taboo and deviant arrangement that works out to be mutually beneficial for both of them. I enjoy every second of reading how they work out the kinks in their arrangement as they go along. 😏 Unfortunately she now has some making up to do thanks to her monstrous step brothers and Leo Morelli.

Ash and Winston continue to test their boundaries of what society would consider morally acceptable, but at least in their circles have gained the respect of Ash while others continue to hold their particular desires over their heads. What started out as an agreement with no feelings involved, seems like it could be turning into something completely different, but will happen when Win feels as though Ash has committed the ultimate betrayal? 

The entire cast of secondary characters, from Winson’s brother Perry, brother Keaton and sister, Tinsley who all seem to be #TeamAshWin help make this story unputdownable, and unforgettable but also heartbreaking at the cliffy in the end. 

This book has so much going on with our fierce and feisty heroine Ash to the alphahole Winston who’s sweeter sides we are finally seeing. You will run the gamut of emotions. It’s so hot, and frustrating. It’s devastating and enraging. One minute my heart is all ooey gooey and the next I’m all filled with raged. It.Was.Fantastic.lol Dang that Cliffy though!You still must read it!! ⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️

Fire Release Blitz & Review

🔥FIRE🔥

The final stand-alone romance novel in the Brewed Series

I’m the oldest of all the Dixon boys.

Yeah, that family.

And, yeah, that Dixon. The one with a notorious temper and devastating fists.

My family tried everything short of giving up on me, but there’s only one person who can calm me.

Savannah Riley Dixon.

Girl next door. My best friend.

Sweeter than honey and stronger than whiskey. And the answer to my enraged soul.

From the moment she came skipping onto our ranch when we were kids, I knew she was my future—my everything.

One touch, the fire in me cools.

One kiss, that rage melts away.

But the girl who’s stood by my side through brawls, cop cars, and kids of our own warned me years ago: One more fight, and she’s gone.

For her, I’d do anything.

I’d lower my fists. I’d rein it all in. I’d stop the damn world.

But when someone threatens our marriage, all I see is red.

My Review

I will be honest my friends. I went into this book excitedly terrified. Lol Let me explain.  I  had been anticipating this book so much because I’m SO in LOVE with this series. But here I was thinking from the little we have seen of him in the previous books that the only redeeming quality that Beau Dixon possesses is…well at first wasn’t sure that he had many. However Molly wrote this so I decided to truck along with trust, she would probably end up changing my mind in the end. So I belly flopped into the deep end kinda thinking “what am I gonna do? I like Beau Dixon SO much less than his brothers. Now his brothers… THEY stole my heart.” Wait I’m getting off track here. Any hoo…There I was thinking the only redeeming thing about him was his unbreakable devotion to his wife, sweet Savannah Dixon, or so it seemed. So I started out with an “ I just don’t know about that Beau” attitude. So the question is can Molly turn the angry, fight startin’ Beau into the most desirable Dixon?”

HOLY HELL YES  SHE DID!! Molly McAdams made me fall irrevocably in love with Beau Dixon and his journey towards forgiveness and redemption. In my many clouds of tears while reading this book my mind was forever changed. Maybe because out of all the Dixon boys he had to fight the hardest for his redemption,  or maybe because of all the Dixon boys his self loathing is at an all time high, not really sure. But I know for CERTAIN there was a particular moment, my eyes overflowing with tears, my heart devastated, I realized that for one hundred and fifty percent certainty Beau would be the Dixon that broke me and that somehow Beau Dixon had the strongest hold on my heart out of all those delicious Dixon boys. Everything about this broody and angry and aggressive man is devilishly sexy. He makes me sad while I yearned for his happiness,  he melts my heart with the way he looks at his wife, and he definitely makes my heart flutter. The determination of this hardworking man on a mission to get back what he once had melts me like butter on a biscuit. My heart almost can’t take how he has never truly had anyone in his corner like Savannah. So for all those reasons he OWNS my heart. I’m claiming him. I have it bad for misunderstood men. ( They are my favorites so it’s not surprising)

“I know she deserves someone better than me—I’ve tried to get her to realize that. But I’ll always try to be the guy she deserves.”

He has the worst rap y’all! From childhood he was the angry turd adults had washed their hands of. Even his parents were at their wits end. Then in walks the new neighbors with their little girl Savannah and his life would never be the same. 

Savannah Riley Dixon. Sweet, sassy, loyal and she saw something in Beau DIxon the moment she first saw him. She was this precious girl who saw the potential in Beau that know one else had ever taken the time to see.  She was the balm to every ailment that burns him, everything that sets him ablaze. He’s the fire and she’s the ice. She’s calm and he’s the storm. She saw something in him and from the first glance he was hers and she was his, and my heart was a puddle of goo on the floor. 

“He doesn’t need to be fixed or changed or-or-or . . . anything. He’s fine. He’s perfect,…”

There is so much more to him than the sexy ball of anger that people think he is and I can’t wait for you all to read this book and fall in love with the complexity of this character. To fall in love with this big bearded burly man that melts at the sight of his wife and their babies. To look deep into your own heart and try to understand what years of feeling like nothing short of a bomb with an extra short fuse feels like. To not understand why you feel this way but to be so thankful god sent you an angel like your wife because she keeps you in check. But they are married and have kids now. When she told him no more fighting or she was done, she meant it! 

“That girl is the answer to my fucked-up soul. She’s my everything…”

I can’t imagine the fear Beau lived in knowing what he could lose at any given moment. That’s the power secrets wield over us, and Beau knew he never deserved any of his blessings anyway.  At the start I thought he was a jerk, an angry jerk but as we get to know throughout the chapters my heart thawed. SO. HARD! He is so misunderstood. This man has spent his life feeling so angry, broken and hated and like he would never amount to anything. Like he was so unworthy. I feel like there was such character transformation in this book. I really felt like both Beau and Savannah grew so much as individuals and as a couple. Holy Geeze are they ever hot too!! 🔥🔥 

I loved that this book was told in dual POV and told in flashbacks from past to present. We got to read Beau’s journey, his journey of how he crawled, kicked, scratched and clawed his way to become the hardworking man he is. To earn the respect of his enlaws and his mother. But when secrets long buried come and Savannah and Beau’s world implodes will they be able to overcome these obstacles or will their beautiful life go up in flames.

I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to end the final book in the Brewed series. This entire series was amazing. So full of drama, angst, emotionally riveting storytelling that will have you crying all the tears, celebrating the triumphs, and living for every sweet, sexy and swoon worthy moment. This entire series is a MUST READ!! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- I NEED MORE STARS!! LOL If Molly McAdams writes it, you can guaran-dang-tee I am gonna read, actually devour it. Her writing always amazes me with so much heart and fearlessness. She isn’t afraid to hurt you, to break your heart before she fixes it better. Even those times when we are crushed for our characters I know it’s necessary for their journey. She makes us love them that much. When they hurt, we hurt. That is the mark of her incredible talent. I know with Molly’s books we are guaranteed to get a deliciously dirty and sexy story filled with heat, witty banter, and even the unexpected. Fire was riveting and emotionally gripping and it was just phenomenal. ( be prepared to need tissues though) This book, this entire series will still be with me long after I finished the last page and I would not be surprised if I’m still feeling it months later.) I can’t say enough good things about this series!! YOU WILL SEE!!

🔥🔥🔥🔥-This was beyond all kinda hot. I loved getting the clash of the past and present. Reading about the overwhelming lust bombs from their younger days makes you nostalgic about how hot you were when you first started out. That chemistry is explosive. Then how it matures as you grow into a mature married couple. What I like to call Smokin’ sweet!   🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! This was super emotional, I cried so many times because I loved these characters and felt all the feelings right along with them, but I was so happy with how this ended and I am only sorry to see the series end! #HappyEnding!😍

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach . . . which roughly translates to being a homebody and dishing out movie quotes with her hubby. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and loves curling up in a fluffy blanket during a thunderstorm . . . or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.
