Ander and Hadley are back. Breaking hearts and each other’s spirits with the beautiful inevitably toxic love they share. This poor couple is the absolute epitome of the addict and the enabler that will love them into the grave. They both are so irrevocably in love with each other.
But ultimately Ander can’t change who he is and what he does just because of Hadley. If her love was enough he would do it for her in a heartbeat, but Anders’ problems are big. But Hadley knows deep down that she can just love him better, she knows she can’t keep enabling him. It’s gonna hurt and take some huge sacrifice on her part because she just can’t stay in this world of worry and stress with him. But… Has he finally broken his last straw?
This book, like the others in the series, is emotional and raw. It’s so gut wrenching and real at it’s core you can help but to be swept away into Hadley and Anders’ story. To sympathize with everyone who has ever loved someone so much that they have found themselves in a continuous loop like we see here with Ander and Hadley. Their story is devastated and deep and raw and frustrating. But it’s so REAL y’all! There are couples out there like our Ander and Hadley right now and they don’t survive. So I can’t wait for book four. They have such deep strength and love that they pull from one another. Hardly is so much stronger than she knows and if anyone can be the incentive to make him get clean forever it’s her. I just hope it works.
Please read this delicious angst fest. You will be on the edge the entire time. This book is all highs and lows for our characters and all of it is magnificent writing. Get it today!!

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.
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! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

Saffron A. Kent is most definitely one of my forbidden favorites. One of my go-to’s when I need an age-gap. When I am looking for a delicious and dirty romance that will capture my heart and soul and have me all twisted and turned inside and out before letting me go. THIS story, My Darling Arrow was just that. A perfectly packed emotional journey. I devoured this book so quickly. I absolutely didn’t want to put it down. To be totally honest I was actually sad when it was over. It could have gone on forever and I would have been a happy happy girl! 😍
She had been plagued by something she couldn’t take any longer and had to get away, things didn’t quite work out how she had planned and that ended with her at St. Mary’s. There she meets a group of supportive friends that help her escape the confines of the restrictive walls.
Finally the one with the bewitching eyes and plump lips, she loves to coat in rebellious colors of lipstick, is finally able to explore the opportunity to be with the one she has always dreamed of. Even if that means she has to offer herself up.
From the first page I was entranced by Salem’s character. Her years of deep love, obsession, devotion, and sacrifice for the love of her life, Arrow. She kept it all inside in secret, only letting it flow freely in her letters she wrote to him, that she would never actually send to him. There were reasons for the deep rooted secrecy, and those I will keep to myself as well, because I wouldn’t dare spoil it for you, dear readers. Salem found herself at St. Mary’s reform school after running away from home.
Arrow was a tougher character to crack at first. He arrives at St. Mary’s angry, damaged and so different from the Arrow, Salem knew all these years. She doesn’t understand why he is here or what things could have happened in his life to lead him back home to St. Mary’s, but she makes up her mind she is going to help him. No matter what might happen to her heart in the process. I love characters like Arrow. He was so complex. There were so many layers to him and to why he was the way he was. It was definitely hard sometimes to read him hurt my sweet devoted Salem, but to see his transformation by the end…OMG!! Gah! This is why I read books like this and why YOU should too!
“I’ll still love him. I’ll still dive into the ocean and jump off an airplane for him. He’s my Arrow. My darling Arrow.”
I loved the entire cast of characters in this book( well except for the mean girls) and I am so excited that this is only book one in a new series of standalone books. This was a perfect way to kick it off. We got a really good setup for the next book, A Gorgeous Villain. Callie’s story.
My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- My Darling Arrow was EVERYTHING!! This book captivated me from the first page until I closed it! It was the perfect blend of forbidden meets age-gap(only five years),coming of age, emotional, sexy and swoony. It was also angsty and sweet and frustrating. These characters were amazing and complex and I wanted to cry for them and with them. I also wanted to throttle some of them at the same time. I wanted to be sneaking out to hang out with them. I can’t wait to devour the next book in this series. Everything about it was just fantabulous!
🔥🔥🔥🔥-This is one of those books that I like to say will simultaneously melt your heart and your kindle and boy will this one. It was so.freaking.hot! Good gravy it was alpha AF and HOT AS HADES!! Talk about a combustible couple 🔥 deliciously, down and dirty love makin’ 😍
🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 No Cliffy! 😍 OMG that HEA though!! Perfection!
Hood River Hoodlums, Book 4 by K Webster Publication Date: July 30, 2020 Genres: Forbidden Friends to Lovers Romance
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero! Life was nearly stolen from me. In the blink of an eye, everything changed. I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum. I’m irrevocably altered. Damaged both inside and out. I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live. Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths. Some days, I wish I never woke up. But then life takes an unusual turn. A sweet, sad little girl might be mine. My dream job is gifted to me. I have a doctor who cares. Things are looking up. Until her. One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything. She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone. Pokes. Prods. Infuriates. This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me. Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time. I’ll shake her off eventually. She’s nothing to me. A Hood River zero. Try telling my heart that… This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!
What an amazingly, unputdownable way to end the Hood River Hoodlums series. 🤩Each book in this series was unique and each couple tragically beautiful in their own way. This series is binge-worthy. You can’t help but to fall deeply in love with each character, their journey and their back story. I am super excited about the note to readers in the back of Hood River Zero. 🙌🏻
Terrance and Penny captured my heart🥰 a long time ago. Both of these characters have deep issues they are dealing with, but they are able to recognize they are each other’s perfect counterpart😍. They always just seem to know exactly what the other one needs. GAH! It’s precious and sweet and emotional. Penny was the one who brought Terrance out of the pit of despair he was in. Boy did she ever. Lol
She did it in that blunt, sharp witted tongue lashing way that only the “Mean-Ass Hoodlum” 😈 could bestow upon you. It was the way he needed to hear it too.
Penny struggles with issues of her own and has for years. When Terrance shows interest in wanting her to be his girl how will she respond? She knew she wasn’t normal inside and figured no one would ever really want her if they could see inside her head. Terrance immediately picked up her struggles and always anticipates her needs almost before she even does.
“Terrence is normal. Perfect, even with his uneven head, drooping eye, and plentiful scars.And I’m the definition of imperfect. Broken and flawed and barely functioning.”
He is so drawn to her and is almost surprised when she went from Hollis’ little sister to his everything. But since he can’t get her out of his head then nothing will stop him from making her his. Making sure she knows she is safe, loved and cared for. He’s just this big teddy bear with a heart of gold, that can kick you fanny if you mess with what’s his. So.Freakin.Hot! 🔥
“It’s Penny, for fuck’s sake. Bratty, annoying, mean-ass Penny. God sure did make her fucking pretty to mess with my head.”
This book, like the others, is full of secrets, lies and suspense. All of our favorite Hoodlums must come together to help their own. Several things happen in this book that need some Hoodlum smackdown, and no one brings a beat down like a Hoodlum set out to protect the ones they love. This entire series is a much read.

About the Author: I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide. I wanted to be a marine biologist. An actor. A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone. These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course
