Trust Six Venom Release Blitz & Review


 

 

♦ ♦ ♦




CLAY

Marymount girls are good girls. We’re chaste, we’re untouched, and even if we weren’t, no one would know, because we keep our mouths shut.

Not that I have anything to share anyway. I never let guys go too far. I’m behaved. 

Beautiful, smart, talented, popular, my skirt’s always pressed, and I never have a hair out of place. I own the hallways, walking tall on Monday and dropping to my knees like the good Catholic girl I am on Sunday.

That’s me. Always in control. 

Or so they think. The truth is that it’s easy for me to resist them, because what I truly want, they can never be. Something soft and smooth. Someone dangerous and wild. 

Unfortunately, what I want I have to hide. In the locker room after hours. The bathroom stall between classes. The showers after practice. 

My head swimming. My hand up her skirt. 

For me, life is a web of secrets. No one can find out mine.  

OLIVIA

I cross the tracks every day for one reason—to graduate from this school and get into the Ivy League. I’m not ashamed of where I come from, my family, or how everyone at Marymount thinks my skirts are too short and my lipstick is too red. 

Clay Collins and her friends have always turned up their noses at me. The witch with her beautiful skin, clean shoes, and rich parents who torments me daily and thinks I won’t fight back.

At least not until I get her alone and find out she’s hiding so much more than just what’s underneath those pretty clothes. 

The princess thinks I’ll scratch her itch. She thinks she’s still pure as long as it’s not a guy touching her. 

I told her to stay on her side of town. I told her not to cross the tracks. 

But one night, she did. And when I’m done with her, she’ll never be pure again. 

*Tryst Six Venom is a standalone, new adult romance between the wealthy princess with a temper for what’s hers and the hard girl from the wrong crowd. One battles convention. The other, her pride. But nothing will stop it.

Y’all this is an amazing F/F story. Now I’m not one that ever pictured myself grabbing a f/f book but let me tell you the fact that Penelope Douglas wrote it had me intrigued. So I was all in for giving it a go. I’m so glad I did. This book was everything I hoped it would be and so so much more. Penelope Douglas killed it with this book!!

This was Clay and Liv’s story. The gorgeous rich girl and the hot theater girl from the swamp.  This was the ultimate opposites attract story and a total enemies to lovers masterpiece! It was so emotionally riveting and angsty and perfectly frustrating. I loved everything about this book. All the Jaeger brothers and their protectiveness over Liv.  I couldn’t put it down!! I was entranced from the moment I started.

It was smoking hot but more. This book was just a phenomenal love story. It was a perfect story about coming into your own and being happy to finally be who you are meant to be and finding your once person who helps you to do that. GAH!! It’s just so fantastic y’all! 

This is definitely a must read , people. FIVE STARS!!

#TSV-8

I stalk down the nearly empty row, drop my bag, and look at her. She turns her head, sees me and rises, grabbing her backpack, but I slide into the seat, grab her wrist, and yank her ass back down. 

“Sit,” I growl through my teeth, feeling heat rise up my neck as she crashes back into the wooden pew, her jaw flexing. 

There’s no point in denying myself any of this. I’m a bitch, but only to her, and only because it feels so good. Fuck it. 

“Do something for me?” I ask her, keeping my voice low as students fill the rows around us, and the altar servers light the candles. “Move your ass a little faster down the field than my grandmother this Saturday, or is that too much trouble?”

Liv doesn’t look at me, just stares ahead as she lets out a quiet little laugh. “I haul ass down that field.” Relaxing back into her seat, she hangs her elbows over the back of the pew, and her shirt creeps up a little. I spot the switchblade she keeps hooked over the waist of her skirt, but hidden on the inside, that only I seem to know about. So far anyway. She goes on, “I’ll never understand how a princess who can’t pass a ball for shit and brags to anyone who will listen about being a Swiftie,” and she does air quotes, “‘even before she went pop’ is our team captain. Oh, wait. Yes, I do understand. Daddy is useful. When he’s there.”

My father didn’t get me that position. She can think what she likes. 

But I grin and turn toward the front of the church, my arm brushing hers. 

“Swiftie?” I say. “Aw, you stalk my Twitter.”

That was like four years ago when I said that. 

But she just mumbles, “I couldn’t care less about your Twitter and your twenty-eight followers.”

“At least I don’t lose a dozen every day,” I retort. 

Yeah, maybe I stalk her Twitter, too. And I don’t have twenty-eight followers. I don’t have as many as her, but it’s more than twenty-eight.

“The world just doesn’t like tattooed feminazis with hairy armpits,” I tell her, my gaze catching the dimple on her cheek as she smirks, “who pass judgments like all the other constipated Captain Americas on social media who act like they really know anything when they’re just angry their life sucks donkey nuts.”

The dimple grows deeper, her matte red lips pursing to keep her amusement at bay. My heart thumps, and for a moment, I can’t look away. Sometimes I get lost, looking at her. The shape of her nose that I’m kind of jealous of. How soft the lobe of her ear looks. The way she chews the corner of her mouth sometimes.  

“Is everything okay?” someone says, snapping me out of it. 

I turn my head, seeing Megan Martelle standing over us, holding a stack of collection baskets. Her blue eyes flit between Liv and me, knowing very well that this isn’t a friendly conversation, but lucky for her, this isn’t any of her damn business.   

“Fine, thanks,” I reply, my tone a big enough hint she’d have to be blind to miss. 

But she looks to Liv instead. “Liv?” 

Excuse me? It’s not the name. It’s how she says it. Like they know each other. 

Liv must give her some gesture or something, because Martelle gives me one last look and then slowly leaves, continuing down the aisle toward the back of the church without another word. 

What the hell is she thinking? Does she want to become my next hobby or something? 

I reach down and pull my backpack closer before turning my eyes back to Liv to see if she’s watching her leave. 

But she’s staring at me instead, amusement in her eyes.  

“What the hell are you smiling at?” I demand. 

She never loses her cool, and it pisses me off. 

But she just replies, “You have a tattoo.”

Her gaze drifts to my hand, and I squeeze my fingers together, covering it. All over again, I feel the needle carve into the inside of my middle finger on my left hand. 

Fair enough. I’d mocked tattooed feminazis, an umbrella term I tossed her under, when, in fact, she doesn’t actually have any tattoos. Not even the one of her family’s little Sanoa Bay gang—the snake and hourglass that she wears on a bracelet around her wrist. Her brothers all seem to have it inked on them somewhere. 

Her eyes hold mine, maybe waiting for a response or daring me for one, but the light coming in from the stained-glass windows catches the coppery glint of the strands in her dark hair, a lock hanging over her eye as the rest spills around her shoulders. A dozen or so little braids decorate her hair, none of the ends secured with rubber bands. She looks like a warrior girl in one of those futuristic dystopian movies.  

And all of a sudden, nothing is hot anymore. It’s just incredibly warm. 

I squeeze my fingers tighter, the lines inked on the inside of my finger making the four quarters of an inch on a ruler, very few ever notice the lines, and those who do probably just assume I’ve leaked pen on myself. 

Within that inch we are free. One inch. 

“Clay?” she says, her tone different. 

I don’t realize I’m staring off until I bring my eyes back into focus and see the black of her Polo shirt. I lift my gaze, seeing a worried expression on hers. 

Her eyes shift to my hand on the pew in front of us, and I notice that it’s shaking. 

“You okay?” she asks. 

I inhale hard, angry at myself. Why would I not be okay?

She grabs my backpack. “You need one of your little blue pills?”

But I snatch the pack out of her hands and glare at her. “If you let her touch you,” I bite out, changing the subject. “She will live to regret it. I don’t even have to leave this seat to ruin her life.”

Liv looks back at me, and I want to get closer—get in her face, because I want a reaction. 

“She won’t be able to take it,” I growl in a low voice. “I will keep going until she can’t take it.” 

I can ruin anyone’s life from my phone. It would be fun. And easy. 

“You’re not embarrassing our team,” I finally tell her. 

Megan was flirting yesterday. There’s no way in hell that’s happening. 

She holds my gaze and then draws in a breath, another fucking air of delight written all over her stupid, fucking face. “I don’t like women who chase me anyway,” she says. “When I want them, they know.”

A tingle spreads up my spine, and when I expect to feel anger at her boldness, something else comes over me instead. 

When I want them, they know. How do they know? What does she do?

But she rises from her seat without elaborating. “Excuse me,” she says, and takes her bag, trying to leave.  

But I stomp down the kneeler, grab her wrist, and yank her to her knees. She sucks in a breath as she catches herself on the pew in front of her, and I pick up my backpack and rise. 

“Sit your ass down,” I grit out. 

I don’t stay to see her reaction. I spin around, ignoring the spying eyes from those around us, and leave the chapel just as Mass begins. 

When I want them… 

I blink long and hard. Jesus.

A Gorgeous Villain release Blitz & Review

Release Date: June 3

Two years ago, Reed Jackson betrayed Calliope Thorne and broke her heart. So she stole his most prized possession – a white mustang – and drove it into the lake for revenge.
 
Now, Callie is stuck at a reform school while Reed is off at college, living his life without repercussions.
 
Until he comes back.
 
With him comes back all the feelings that Callie has been trying to bury: anger and heartbreak.
 
But most of all, desire. At the sight of his beautiful but lying lips and his gunmetal gray eyes that still taunt and smolder when he looks at her.
 
Whatever though. It’s not as if Callie is ever going to fall for her ex-boyfriend again. Or let him corner her in a bar one night and touch her, kiss her…
 
Neither is she going to kiss him back. Or worse, sleep with him.
 
Because that would make her naïve and foolish.
 
Oh, and also pregnant.
 
And there’s no way Callie is ever going to get pregnant at eighteen and with Reed’s baby, no less. The guy she hates.
 
The guy who taught her all about heartbreak. Who might look like a gorgeous hero but really
is the villain of her story.
 
NOTE: This story is a standalone and does not contain cheating.

My Review

Holy moly!!!  Talk about a fairy bringing the villain to his knees. Now I’m not sure exactly what I was expecting when I went into this book but this was more than. It was frustratingly angsty. I spent much of this book anticipating the moment when Callie and Reed would get it together. If they’d ever get it together. I loved the push and pull and underlying tension between them for much of this book. It brought such a dark sexiness to the background of everything that was going on and made me hope against all hope that they would be able to work out their crap. There was just something that made you sympathetic to Callie because of the way Reedhad hurt her, and there was definitely something that made your heart bleed for Reed. 

Reed Roman Jackson is legit the villain of my dreams. He’s hot, rich and alpha AF. He’s super protective of his Fae and he’s self punishing to the nth degree. I loved how he said he didn’t love anything or anyone but you could just tell he had this huge capacity to love if he could only realize it. 


Calliope Thorne’s character was so perfectly written and perfect for the heroine to compliment Reed Roman Jackson. This tiny fiery ballerina with so much spirit and love to give and not a bit of fear when it came to standing up to the big huge men in her life. 

Now the first ⅓ of this book is the prequel, The Wild Mustang and the Dancing Fairy. Then the rest is two years after the incident that happens in the prequel. Get ready to see some big time character growing, especially in the last ⅓ of this book. There is so much in the story that finally explains why our Wild Mustang is the way he is, and why he is unable to love anyone. Or has he finally found the ones he loves more than anything? 

I’m obsessed with the level of alpha/possessiveness. It’s fanning yourself over and over, sweating and jaw dropping kinda hot. I Love it so much!

My Review

Well friends, my favorite slice my heart and put it back together author, Jewel E. Ann has written another masterpiece that will impact this girl’s heart FOREVER!! 

For Lucy was so much more than I could have ever imagined I was getting and it was magical. Every tear inducing, gut wrenching, humblingly hilarious, never gonna be the same after this moment. 

This story is so real and raw, so true to life and that’s what made it so much easier for me to fall right into every word, emotion, every sentence. To fall in love with these tragically broken characters and hope and pray they can find true happiness in their lives again. 

This is an amazing story of the lengths of what one person will do to protect the people they love most in the world. My heart broke and it swooned. The absolute sacrifices this person suffered in some ways in silence about many things was astounding. To be loved by someone that much. What.a.dream. Now their life’s circumstances were by no means easy and talk about clawing, kicking and scratching your way back from the depths of despair. But I wouldn’t trade this journey for anything else. I was eye opening, unforgettable and I am forever going to be thinking about these wonderful characters. 

Get ready because Jewel E. Ann brings the tears, the drama, the laughter and every other emotion out there in this not to miss story.

✨Star Rating-  All the stars aligned for this perfect book and it deserves every one. ✨✨✨✨✨✨

🔥Flame factor- As always Jewel’s books are sweaty, sexy and oh so swoony!! Heck yes!  🔥🔥🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger warning- no cliffhanger. Tear jerker HEA of Perfection!! 🥰🥺🥰🥺

The Bosun Review


OMG y’all! Flutters of excitement, this book gave me butterflies 🦋 and goosebumps and so many moments of fan myself goodness! 😍 

So, Harlow Layne is MY GIRL an absolute reaper of Reverse Age Gap! SHE KILLS  IT EVERY DANG TIME! Intern, The Model and now The Bosun! GAH! My heart is so full though, y’all! Holy Moly Harlow Layne sure put me through the ringer though as always. Lol

There are so many unexpected gems in this book, 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 hoping against all that Stella gets her groove back and overcomes everything her disastrous marriage and divorce put her through. Amongst dramatically sweet and swoony and incredibly funny mishaps, to unexpected moments of frustration, Remy and Stella’s journey is the most delectably phenomenal rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I stressed, I swooned.  I fell so hard for and couldn’t help but to root for the sexy, sweet and so perfectly matched for Stella , Remy. In the past ladies I may have claimed in no uncertain terms that Ryder was MINE, but believe me when I say Remy sure gives him a run for his money.  He’s mine too  just letting y’all know now! I will share him with Stella, cause she’s my girl and her and Pen would probably gang up on me, but I’m not sharing with nobody else. Lol 😏

Stella is a loving friend, sweet, sassy, but is trying to regain her confidence after her ex-husband did the unthinkable. When she first sees the off limits, Remy, she is blown away by this drop dead gorgeous man. He is legit EVERYTHING! He could do things to her body she didn’t even know were possible. 

She’s had a rough go as of late and he only wants to make her feel desired and make her feel better.  They both know this can only be a super secret vacation romance. When life throws situations that beg to differ will Stella take the opportunity given and finally get her much deserved HEA? 

Remy is working as the bosun on a chartered Yacht when he first meets Stella and her band of wild and missflt friends. He is this phenomenally hot,  sweet, young and fun-loving guy but also very off-limits charter staff member. But he’s also very mature and polite. However he is hiding some secrets and feelings of his own. This guy may be young but he’s far from a kid, the stuff he’s seen and dealing with, OMG!! The tears y’all. Oh how I cried! . 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. He’s got it bad for his “sexy Stella.” When the vacation is over can Remy just walk away and just forget about Stella? 

There are most definitely many obstacles that she and Remy 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. 

There is always something a little unconventional about Harlow Layne’s couples, they are truly amazingly beautifully connected couples.  Be it life circumstances, appearances, or age difference, she always manages to shock us in some way with their life’s  journey up to the point of meeting. 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. Nevertheless her couples love stories always manage to transcend whatever life throws their way.  The characters are strong, resilient and above all they LOVE BIG and love should always win. It does and so do you with every Harlow Layne book, because there is always a Happily Ever After!! 

Swoon 🥰🥰

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog ratings wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Six bring me on that boat and heal all my hurts, Stars. So grateful for the Ryder and Lexie visits. 😍😍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 Remy and Stella’s stolen sexy love scenes!! 🔥🥵🔥 This is most definitely a Panty Chucker Y’all! (Chuck em ,  you don’t need em’) 

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

Heroin Stained Hearts Release & Review




Title: Heroin Stained Hearts
Series: In Vein #3
Author: C.M. Radcliff
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: April 22, 2021

BLURB
After a terrifying health scare, Ander is finally getting the help he needs.

He’s running out of options and needs the treatment.
The only thing is, he hasn’t been honest with Hadley.
One truth leads to a cascade of events that all circle back to one thing… Ander’s addiction.

Life is never easy and the road to recovery is paved with shattered glass.
Hadley’s in love with an addict that harbors more secrets than Pandora’s Box.
Ander is in love with the girl that deserves more than he can give her.

Their love was built on a mountain of lies and broken promises.
When it all comes crashing down, will their love survive?
Or will they finally fall apart?

My Review

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!!

But he’s engaged in far more dangerous games than ours, and his enemies are out for blood.Winston has my heart, the Morellis have incriminating photos, and I’m left with nothing except three stepbrothers who want to hurt me and a future in doubt.

My Review

K. Webster just killed it with this trilogy y’all! This trilogy was perfection, yall! I was so excited to get this final book. Nowon on hand I was on the edge of my seat wondering what all was going to happen and couldn’t wait to see this all play out. Then on the other hand I was dreading the end because I didn’t ever want to let these characters go. 

Ash was the Yin to Win’s Yang. In each they had found their perfect person, their everything, they had found their “ride or die.” I think Ash knew It earlier that Win but patience is a virtue that she does possess so she waited for him to realize it. 

This book picked up right at the end of Prince Charming and so we’re are reading about the fallout from that even and the crap storm that comes afterwards. I won’t give you anything specific but I will just say that conflict between the Constantine’s and the Morielli’s. Holy Cow! Win fighting his true feelings, amAsh trying to convince him not to fight them. All the fighting among rival families, to the lies betrayal that they never expected from some of their closest allies. This made this angst fest all the more delicious. 

Make sure you grab this fantastic trilogy today. This has some of the coolest elements of Cinderella but with a fresh new original take on it. They have to endure lots of ups downs, twists and turns to get to their HEA. So Binge This Series Today!! It’s just another testament to the fact that K. Webster can write absolutely ANYTHING. 

Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up! 

⭐️ Rating- ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This book has so much going on with our fierce and feisty heroine Ash to the hot and sexy alphahole Winston. 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 ragey. It.Was.Awesome.lol

The entire cast of secondary characters are amazingly written, from Winson’s brother Perry and his orange abomination ,  Ash’s dad broke my heart in this book, and most of all my homie bird Shrimp!! They all all made  this book unpredictable, unputdownable, and unforgettable. 

🔥Fire/Heat- 🔥🔥🔥🔥There is no doubt that Winston and Ash are OFF THE CHARTS! Perfectly matched deviants in the sheets. Whew doggy. I’m still fanning myself with an old funeral home fan down here in the south. ( that’s how we do it in GA) 

🌪Cliffhanger- No Cliffy 🌪 Just a prefect fought hard for HEA!! 😍 

👑 And Cinderelliott and her Prince Charming, Win… lived happily ever after!! 👑

Badly Behaved Release Blitz & Review

Release Date: April 7

I’m a Monet.

A chameleon.

I’m whatever I must be.

And what I must be is a flawless daughter, a skilled socialite, and the perfect prize to the man who signed along the dotted line.

Not that I’m complaining.

I’m all for a contractual agreement, a quick and clean catapult into the next phase of rich girl life. One that takes little thought, less effort, and zero devotion.

My Review

Meagan Brandy has knocked me on my Fanny again y’all! In true Meagan fashion she has delivered a book so unexpected and original I’m almost struggling to find words to convey my love for this book, while not giving away any secrets. 

I certainly hope you aren’t afraid of the dark?! The darkest and most delicious monsters come out to play in the dark, and holy hades these are some mouthwatering monsters. With sexy names to match the sexy and dark personas you will find yourself guessing and wondering what in the world is happening?! You quickly learn that the guys characters in this book are so perfectly penned and deep. They are unique and have this eerie and impenetrable vibe going on to their trio. As we go on I can’t explain the feelings in my heart as each one’s own personal story starts to become unveiled. Every emotion I had was tugged at. It didn’t know my heart had room for more of Meagan Brandy’s boys after Brayshaw, but I WAS WRONG!! 

Then our gorgeous heroine. She had  castle sized walls up too. She was a perfectly polished façade from the front and no one had been able to penetrate past the mask she hid behind…Until now. My heart broke for her because no one knew who she truly was, what she really felt, or why she was the way she was. I was so frustrated for her. I really wanted to throttle on her behalf. She really won me over. Quickly! 

If you loved the Brayshaw boys, prepare your hearts ladies. There’s some new man in town and they may just steal your heart away from your favorite Bray!  If you thought your Braygirls knew how to bring out their inner “B” well just wait till you meet “Trouble”! 

I will say the first 20% or so is a smidge overwhelming with all the characters and names thrown your way, but you will catch on to who’s who pretty quick and then it’s unputdownable! Don’t try to predict because you will be blown away with the shocks and twists thrown at you. This book is original, unique, sinful and sexy in all the best ways. It’s mysterious and shocking and it’s just downright really good! Read it y’all!! Yeah, just read it!!

Prep school has never been so scandalous.

My basic existence.
 
But what I hate is more complicated.

Because I’m a moth to a gorgeous, petite, brunette flame.

And that I would move mountains for her smile.
 
I hate every guy that gets too close.
And that one of them gets to stay.
 
I hate that I want her so bad that I used my best friend to make her jealous.
But most of all, I hate that Caroline Whitmore is the one that got away.

My Review

Not gonna lie, my friends…Hillcrest Prep series is a total addiction for me and Liam Brooks OWNS me!! He won me over in Filthy Little Pretties. There was just something about him that pushed him into my number one Trilina Pucci book boyfriend spot.  Liam and his journey to HEA with his oh so magically delicious mean girl.

Is completely unforgettable, excitingly unputdownable and at times frustrating yet still so phenomenal and fabulously written. This is a must read for all fans of frenemies to lovers, brothers best friends,  and second chance romances. It’s legit the perfect combination of everything you could possibly want, mixed with things you didn’t even know you needed. Yet… Trilina gave them to you in ways so good you will never forget this book! 

So, what can I say about Liam and Caroline without giving anything away?! Well they’re two drop dead gorgeous folks, I’m talking pretty enough to make you cry with their modelish good looks and sex appeal. They ooze confidence. They simultaneously reign over their minions leaving them both terrified and envious of this delicious duo. They lash out with lethal tongues verbally bringing the smack down to anyone who dare cross them. But ultimately only each other has the ability to hurt the other one. Because really only the people you love the most can cut you deepest with just their words. Oh how I cried over this. It was devastating the heartbreak they put each other through to protect themselves and each other from heartache. What a conundrum right! You hurt your person, your ride or die, because you know you will hurt them in the end. Huh! Wow!  Try to figure that one out! 

While maybe for a millisecond I might have been tempted to tell  ol’ Caroline to get on her diamond encrusted broomstick and fly back to her mansion, from very early on I felt like we needed more information about this mean, yet misunderstood princess, and WE GOT IT!! AI really loved how this author allowed us to discover little by little their history and why Caroline was the way she was. And Liam… well he had issues of his own. The way these complex characters had their revelations and grew from them into the characters they became. Oh my heart. It was perfect. They were fantastically flawed. Perfectly imperfect actually. Better together. 

This book wasn’t just a story, it was a journey an experience, and it was one I won’t soon forget. I will look back on these characters with fondness and a love for all the pieces of them. The broken and the healed. The mean and forgiven. The snobby and the  humbled. This is everything I love about books and reading and life changing characters overcoming the obstacles to be with their one inevitable love. 

“You’re my Love-a-Lot.” 😭💔😭

Trust me when I say READ THIS BOOK. Please! You will need tissues😭, wine 🍷 , maybe some chocolate. 🍫 You will laugh and probably also want to throw your kindle. (Don’t actually throw it though). But whatever you do, read it. K?!

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?!
