My Review

Holy Hot Muffins straight out the oven! So… not gonna lie, so many times during this book while totally lol’ing,  I was also hearing Carrie Underwood in the background of my head singing the chorus to “Before He Cheats.” Tempest Cassidy is my spirit animal, Y’all!! She hand delivers revenge on a platter, while the rest of us ladies in the world sit back and cheer HELLS YASSS! There are consequences for her actions and she owns that shit!  And sweet baby Desus in a manger, then she manages to become BFF’s/workout buddies/friends to lovers with Cage “The Fighting Viking” Erickson. LUCKY! I’ve never rooted and carried on so for a book chick so hard in my life. 

Tempest and Cage’s story is like nothing I’ve read before combining all the hilariously lol moments you could ever want plus just the right amount of devastatingly gut-wrenching moments to pack perfectly timed punches. You’re left knowing you’ve been served an emotional beat-down delivered by none other than the amazing Jiffy Kate duo going all out in this Five Star TKO! 

In this story, told in dual POV (which I adore) we read about Tempest “Em” Cassidy, err formerly Williams  and the hell and chaos she encounters after eight years of marriage, a heartbreaking event and then the pinnacle when she walks in on her husband after the unthinkable. But not only does she walk in on him after the unthinkable, but is literally with her arch nemesis, Mindy Mitchell. I mean couldn’t get any worse than that l. Am I right? Tempest immediately finds herself victim/ powerless to the curse of the “ fiery red hair haired temper” and loses her shit, which in turn leads her to finding herself in the slammer. MORE THAN ONCE! 

Next thing you know it’s a feisty free for all. One anger “episode” after another. I’m talking hilariously unique kinds of a misadventures/quests for revenge for Tempest against her ex-husband Asher and his mistress, Mindy. Tempest is dealing with a lot and her life is definitely not where she thought it would be at all and it’s beyond a lot to take in. Lord knows she didn’t handle it well and living in a small town, everywhere she turns they’re in her freaking face or the entire debacle is being thrown in her face. My heart broke so many times throughout this book for Tempest. 

Enter Cage Erickson “ The Fighting Viking”. He’s beyond hot, he’s huge and just enough of a mystery, if being from out of town wasn’t enough, throw in working for his old Harvard buddy Hank at the Pink Pony (yes, it’s a booty club lol) immediately Cage and Tempest form a friendship. There definitely some Insta-lust on both parties ends. She’s attracted to him but also knows it’s way too soon for any kind of relationship so friendship it is. He agrees to help her channel her anger better by working out with her and teaching her some UFC tricks, while hiding his growing more than friendship feelings for her.

As their friendship grows closer she finds herself having feelings she never expected. But with friends and family offering up unsolicited advice about the gorgeous blonde hair blue-eyed out of towner will she put a stop to something good before it ever really gets started?

And what will happen when she finally gets her anger under control and discovers the deception went much further than she could have ever anticipated, will Cage be able to pull this pint sized punch packin’ pixie back out of her angry tirades and help her come up with better ways to sweat out that anger? Will he be stuck having to admire her from a far while she stays in the clink or can he finally help her get it together so he can just hangout with her and enjoy her goodies? 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- OBSESSION!! This book y’all. Holy shit on a stick it’s freakin everything! I’m so in love with the characters in this story. This is unique, hilarious, a tearjerker and gives you ooey gooey feels by the end! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Not gonna Lie, I would gladly go rounds with Cage. Rounds in the bedroom, the shower, the ring, the gym… you get me?!?  Yup that how freakin hot this book is. Now it’s slow burn, but it packs suck a punch when it gets there you are a-okay with the build up! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFY!! #YOUGETHAPPYENDING

Poor Judgment Release Blitz & Review



Title: Pour Judgment
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: October 10, 2019
Blurb

Korie Potter’s got goals. Goals that do not include following in her mother’s footsteps. Rock stars and the life of the rich and famous? Yeah… not interested. She likes her heart in one piece, thank you very much.

Until a weekend of booze and bad decisions at camp Pour Judgment finds her fake-engaged to country music’s most notorious bad boy, Rhett Taylor, and completely at his mercy.

You see, Korie Potter’s also got a dream, and her new “fiancé” just may have the connections to make it come true. 

My Review

I’m am legit obsessed with anything Heather Orgeron writes. She is one of my faves y’all. No Lie. This girl is my soul sister. She’s got a ton of kids,  I have a ton of kids, I feel like we’re kindred spirits, in a totally Anne of Green Gables way… Not like a creepy stalker way. Lol 

I couldn’t wait for this book. I got a little taste of it in the Poor Judgment novella in the Spring Fling anthology. Which of course is like giving a chunky chick a spoonful of frosting and sending her on her way, but her knowing there’s still more of the frosting to be had. So obviously I had been foaming at the mouth for more of Korie Potter and Rhett Taylor’s story. BTW it was worth the wait. GAH! Heather DID NOT DISAPPOINT! 

Originally Korie meets Rhett at a Hollywood party when  she attends to see her cousin, Nick who happens to be a drummer in The Rhett Taylor band. Rhett is in a bit of a compromising position when she walks up  and it comes as no surprise to Korie.

She is the product of a washed up rockstar with whom she has no relationship due to the way he treated her and her mom her whole life. Because of that she has a strong distaste and distrust for the music industry and the lifestyle and anyone in it. Except for maybe Nick. When Rhett immediately notices the sassy beauty, Nick issues a hands off and a “it will never happen” warning that just basically threw down a gauntlet. Fast forward a few weeks later…

Korie and her BFF Raven have showed up on Spring Break to Camp Poor Judgment. An Adults only week of non-stop drinking, good ol fashion girls vs. boys competitions, and debauchery, set up in a summer camp style atmosphere.

Imagine her surprise when The Rhett Taylor Band shows up to the party it up as well.  Now I never went to summer camp as a kid, but dad blastit- I would be the first on the bus to Camp Poor Judgment. Everything about that was hilarious, like rollin on the floor laughing yo AO! I mean the Lush Puppies and Team Tap That!!-for camp team names. Yes Please! That is just the beginning folks. Each amazing event in this whole part of the book is awesome because while yes, it is beyond hilarious. But also because I’m in absolute AWE at Heather’s creativity and attention to everything. She brought us all in and made us feel like a little part of Camp PJ too! Lol  

While there Rhett realizes that Korie is unlike any other woman her has known before and he wants to see where this could go. When a silly misunderstanding gives him an opportunity he jumps on it. Will he be able to break down her barriers and win her heart for real? 

Korie is skeptical and untrusting where Rhett is concerned, she just can’t help it. It’s what she knows from childhood. When she begins to see Rhett for Rhett and not for the industry he’s a part of, or not base him solely on her experiences with her father she finds herself falling hard and fast for Rhett Taylor. Will he succeed in his quest to make all her dreams come true? What happens when she begins to suspect maybe Rhett wasn’t all that truthful, will her heart be able to handle the devastation? 

YOU ABSOLUTELY MUST READ THIS BOOK! There cannot be a Heather O. book that comes out that I’m not going to devour. She has this way with her word wizardry to make a crappy day better, or just a regular day a spectacular day. Her books are freakin’ hilarious and original. You can never even begin to predict the crazy that’s coming your way in the next chapter. What you can predict is that it’s gonna be awesome. She is gonna jam pack that sucker with the perfect amount of funny, hot in sack, conflict, misunderstanding and angst. You know she wants our BP’s and anxiety up a little. We gotta have those “Nooo and “imma bout to throw this kindle” moments. Right before she rounds it out with usually some sort of “ hilarious failure of a grand gesture” for the reunion. So you get your HEA! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- HEATHER IS my Bosom Friend.(another ode to AOGG, apparently I’m on a kick) Every book she writes , I think this one  is my favorite. I’m wasn’t sure anything will ever beat Boomerangers… but this just might be the one!! The secondary characters, locations, everything added up make this book sheer perfection! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- HOLY HOT BISCUITS AND GRAVY! This book may be funny but there ain’t nothing funny about their lovin’ y’all. It’s down & dirty and hot and yummy! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-NO CLIFFHANGER. This ending though. Never Have I Ever liked and ending so much. Lol

FOREVER.jpg

Real love stories, the ones worth telling, never end.

He was searching for the truth.

We broke rules we should have followed.

We made promises we couldn’t keep.

My Review

What am I going to do until I get book two?!?! Seriously, this book! GAH! That smokin’ hot prologue grabbed me and sucked me into this book and now I’m stuck there. I just had no idea the havoc Dylan Allen would inflict upon my heart after that prologue. Carter and Beth both, I can already tell are going to put us on quite a journey to be together. Oh what a journey it will be too!

Elisabeth “Beth” Wolfe is the rich girl from the most prominent, influential family in Winsome, Texas. An outsider would probably make the mistake of thinking she’s the spoiled pretty princess, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Her home life breaks my heart. She’s like a wounded bird, kept in a cage. She’s not given the chance to spread her wings to fly and she’s looked at like a grubby pigeon. Her father is downright cruel. The only light in her life, is her brother, Drew and her secret escape in her art.

Beth meets Carter when she is able to get out with some “not friends” one night. She and Carter they have the most instant, magical connection. When she shows him parts of herself she’s kept hidden or been ridiculed for his genuine reaction isn’t anything she’s ever had before and it’s amazing. Carter is unlike anyone else she’s ever met. After one night with Carter and his amazing family, Beth sees just how different his family is from hers. As much as she likes Carter she knows her father would never allow her to have any kind of a relationship with him. After tragedy strikes Beth is forced to leave everything and everyone behind with no contact. Will Carter wait for word from Beth or will he move on? 

“Yes, the higher I let him take me tonight, the farther I’ll have to fall when it all goes away in the morning. Because as always, the sun will rise and bring it’s disinfecting light that won’t let me hide anything.”

Carter is this beautiful musical prodigy. He has recently discovered something that has altered everything he thought he knew about his life, and himself and it set him on a downward spiral. When his family takes some time away together at a lake house retreat in Texas he meets Beth.

One night changes everything. One look, one touch, one taste and he’s a goner. But when Beth just vanishes after a tragedy Carter can’t help but wonder, we’re all those feelings one sided? What happens when Carter himself is dealt a devastating blow? While Carter finds himself on a quest of self discovery, is it possible fate will it lead him back to Beth? 

This is definitely a one-click must y’all! 

“Baby, real love stories—the ones worth telling—they never end.”

Blurb:

My first love was my brother’s best friend.

A lead singer in their band.

A picture of rugged perfection.

And a drunk soul mate who couldn’t commit.

My second love was an arrogant baseball player.

A player in every sense of the word.

A smooth-talking, reliable best friend.

And a chance at something beautiful and true.

The problem with having a first and second love?

That would be loving them at the same time.

My story isn’t some sexy triangle.

It’s exquisite agony.

Fate gave me two men to love,

but none of us knew which one I could keep.
