Get swept up in this insta-love holiday romance that will make you believe in the magic of New Year’s.

Jax is the modern-day equivalent of a Prince Charming, but he views himself as a beast. He rescues a beauty from the side of the road and never expected one night would change his life forever.

Gabi needed an escape from her world in LA. When her rescuer found her and her wrecked vehicle, she thought he was an angel. She quickly discovers she can rescue him back in a different way.

A holiday power outage still manages to shine light upon what matters most to Gabi and Jax—the people and the moments that define us.

One accident.

A one-night stand.

Two hearts.

And…some mistletoe.

What happens when the ball drops on New Year’s?

MY REVIEW

All I want for Christmas is 🎶… a Jax of my very own! What I absolutely love, love, love about Harlow Layne’s Heroes are they are all so very different from each other, but oh so loveable. As soon as I am convinced that I have fallen for the Ultimate Harlow’s Hero, she goes and writes another one and I find myself once again torn. The constant conundrum. Luckily I can love them all!! I love that her guys aren’t perfect, they come from all walks of life and most have been through some stuff, some not so pleasant too. But even with all that said her men don’t treat women like dumpsters, they are this perfect blend of Alpha in the bedroom but oh so swoony and sweet and all around great guys the rest of the time. 

Jax is all that and a bag of Christmas cookies! He’s had a horrible couple of years and it’s left him hurt and hiding in his cabin away from people. When he ventured out into a snowy ice storm, he happens upon a car accident and finds a beautiful unconscious Gabi. He doesn’t recognize who she is and when she wakes she only thinks he’s an angel.  I don’t want to give away a lot of what happens because it’s a novella and a really quick read. I will just say due to several circumstances, Gabi ends up having to go back to Jax’s cabin to stay and wait out the winter storm. 

Well let me tell you, Baby, it’s cold outside, but it’s sure got hot up in that cabin. There are reasons that Jax thinks he is unworthy of being with someone as beautiful and talented and successful as Gabi. Reasons he would think he would be a “ Beast to her Belle” if you will, but those things about himself are the things that I think make him even more beautiful to her. She is amazing and perfect for him. She doesn’t see his imperfections as a problem, nor is she bothered by them ,they are just part of his story. She’s not at all what people would expect her to be and I adore her! I love that they were both broken in different ways, but the other person was is just the glue needed to put the pieces of each other back together again. 

This book…total perfectness. It’s like the magic of Christmas morning. A night by a cozy fire. Chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. All the things that leave you feeling warm and gooey and oh so good! That’s what this sweet little book does to you! I promise you want to grab it ASAP! Obviously lots more goodness happens between the pages of this amazing novella, but I wouldn’t dare deprive you of getting to experience it for yourself. So grab it today!

Sacrifice Release Blitz & Review

Title: Sacrifice
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: N. Isabelle Blanco
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2019
Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection and part of the Dark Paranormal Ryze Series, but can be read as a Standalone!
Megara
We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
Beaten.
Violated.
Broken.
Eventually, mutated.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.
Herakles
I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
Alone.
Empty.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.

My Review

Wow! I am so glad I took a chance on this book. While Greek/Roman Mythology books are not usually my thing. I mean, I remember a little from back in school(which was a minute ago), but  this isn’t quite the story I remember. Lol

 N. Isabelle Blanco has definitely put a more dark and twisted spin on the story of Hercules and Megara. 

In this story we are told of Herakles “Kles” and Megara “Meg” and their incredibly complicated relationship. They have this long, twisted, dark and painful history that spans several millennia. Sacrifice and suffering is how they have spent their time apart. Suffering in totally different ways, but both suffered and made many sacrifices, nonetheless. What Meg had to endure was gut-wrenching. It left her bitter and out for revenge. My heart was broken for her. But my heart also broke for Kles, his longing and searching. His suffering with guilt. 

I love the strength Meg had. She is one amazingly Bad Ass chick, and I love that Kles wasn’t going to give up his chance to make things right when he had his opportunity. Then when they were working together you just know they were made for one another!! They are perfect together, and so freakin hot!  

There were quite a lot of secondary characters thrown in and that almost got a little confusing at times, but I think it’s just because it’s been a while for me with Greek Mythology and it’s not totally my jam. But I still really enjoyed the book. If you like the mythology stuff definitely check this book out! It’s really good. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- Great retelling of a Greek/Roman Mythology. If you are a fan you will love this!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Meg and Kles are super hot for each other and so are their love scenes. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy, but I wouldn’t mind having more of their story.

My Review

Oh my goodness I loved this adorable story! Juniper “June” and the way she plots and plans out her life down to the finest detail. Lol spur of the moment hooking up with the hottie, she definitely makes no plans for anything like Sterling. He’s hot, and kinda cynical, but totally free spirited! That’s bound to be a good story right?!?!  

Juniper “June” Spearman is sister to the Spearman men you may have read about in some of Claudia’s other books. If you haven’t no big, she tells who belongs with who. Anyway, June is in her early thirties, beautiful, has a wonderful family and is a great person all around. She has built a successful business and should feel fulfilled right? She doesn’t. She wants to be a mother. After many “it’s me not you” failed relationships, she has made the decision to become a mother on her own. On a night out ,Thanksgiving-eve before she has to see her family and just a month before she begins that process to become pregnant via IVF she meets this gorgeous god of a nameless man and has the most amazing one night stand. Even though it’s out of character for her what could it hurt right? It’s not like she’s ever going to see him again. She doesn’t know his name or anything about him. And she already knows she can’t get pregnant without medical intervention so she throws caution to the wind and goes for it. BEST.NIGHT.EVER!  What will June do when she finds herself falling hard for the nameless man a month later when she meets him again? What will she and Sterling do when they find out they unknowingly made June’s biggest dream come true that night? Will June be able to make Sterling realize how much he has to offer her? 

Sterling Ahern is this hot, brilliantly talented artist. He’s Uber rich but keeps himself away from friends and family as a protective measure because of crazy fans. He never has plans to marry, settle down or have children. None of it’s in the cards for him. He doesn’t like holidays or celebrations. But after his One night with June, he finds himself suddenly rethinking everything. Things he never thought he wanted he suddenly is dreaming of as a part of his future. But with his fame comes crazy fans, is it worth the risk to the people he cares about? 

This is a fantastic sweet holiday story. The Insta-lust is great, but even better than that is we get a slow build to a great friendship and relationship after that. The dynamic between June and her family and June and Sterling is incredible. Their witty banter and delicious chemistry is off the charts hot. Don’t miss out on this one. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️-Five  Christmas Tree🎄 Stars. This sweet and sassy holiday story gives you everything you could possibly want. Feisty and sweet heroine, Insta-lust with a one night stand baby romance. Hot anti-love hero, that has a change of heart. Yes please!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- This has just the right amount of hot and sweet. So it’s just plain PERFECTION! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No cliffhanger. I’m in love with this ending! #Happyendingforall

Excerpt

“Juniper Spearman, what the fuck are you doing here?” I hear Jackson’s voice and there’s a loud
banging on the door. “June, open up. I know you’re there, open the fucking door.”

“Who is that?” Sterling asks, gasping for breaths.

“June, I can’t stop him for too long.” I hear Alex’s voice. “Open up, Junie bee.”
I grunt. “My brothers,” I say, untangling myself from him. “Are you ready?”
Ever since we were kids, Jack has always known when I borrow his things without permission. I
knew going into his garage might trigger some camera. He has a tight security system. To top it

all, I stole his Internet connection.

But hey, I needed my equipment and a faster Internet connection. Sterling’s slows down when

we stream movies.

What’s the best way to keep myself connected while we are lounging?

I hooked up my electronics to his Internet.

It’s Jackson’s fault. The guy always brags about it being so powerful he can connect to it even if
he’s hiking a couple of miles away from his property. Well, the geek is right. I’m less than a mile

away from his home and I’ve been taking advantage of it.

He’s in the city, after all. He won’t notice until he comes back and hopefully by then, I’ll be

gone.

“I thought you had bodyguards to take care of unwanted company,” I growl, marching toward

the door.

He snorts. “I’m sure they know and that’s why they’re letting your brothers do whatever they

want—to interrupt me.”

We walk to the main door and what do we find?

Not one, but three very annoying Spearman brothers glaring at me—and Sterling.

“Juniper?” Jackson crosses his arms.

“Jackson?” I cross mine too and give him the glare. He might be taller, older, and meaner but
I’m not letting him treat me like I’m five years old. “Do I go to your house and bang on the door

at odd hours of the day? Mom will be disappointed with your manners.”
“This isn’t your house,” he corrects me. “And it’s three o’clock.”
Sterling surprises me when he says with a firm voice. “It is her house.”

We all turn to look at him. I’m totally dumbfounded by his answer.
“I like you, Spearman, but watch your tone.” He looks at my brother darkly.
“I thought we were friends, man,” Alex says with disappointment. “You’re breaking the bro-

code.”

“Seriously, June,” Jason says with a tone of disappointment and brushes some strands of my hair.

“At least fake it.”

I open my mouth to protest but stop myself. Saying I look like shit because I’ve been puking all
day is going to open the can of worms I want to keep closed for a few more weeks—months
even. Maybe I’ll have the babies and tell them about it when they turn four or eighteen.
“Not to interrupt this amusing family reunion, but it’s cold as fuck outside and she’s not wearing
a jacket,” Sterling says, pulling me into his arms. “How can I help you, gentlemen?”

“Let’s go home, June,” Jackson orders.
Sterling turns to me, his eyes soft. “Do you want to leave?”

I shake my head.

“You heard the lady. She’s with me,” Sterling barks back. “She’s also not your property to order

around.”

Butterflies fluttering and all aside, I compose myself. Because no one wants to speak with a

puddle of mush, and say, “I came with him and will leave with him.”

“Mom doesn’t know where you are,” Jackson starts nagging. “She’s freaking out because she
went to visit you and your neighbor said you’re out of town. The first thing she did was call me

because I’m responsible for you when our parents are out of town.”
“Jason.” I appeal to the one who isn’t as possessive.

“You know I love you and I support you,” he says. “But this wasn’t cool. At least text me your
whereabouts. What’s going on with you? I heard you’re selling your company.”
“You took the month off,” Alex adds. “What if I need you?”

“This is so unlike you,” Jackson says frustrated. “I get it from Jeannette but you …”
“Me what, Jackson? Just because I decided to change my life that doesn’t mean I’m a failure.
You changed yours, just like Jason did. I can’t search for my own happiness?”

He frowns and closes his mouth tight.

In Peace Lies Havoc Release Blitz & Review


In Peace Lies Havoc, an all-new dark and emotional romance by USA Today Bestselling author Amo Jones is NOW LIVE!




My name is Dove Hendry.
Mine is Kingston Axton.
I was captured by darkness.
She has always been ours…
They groomed me for Midnight Mayhem. Like a trained possession, weak against their control.
She has been conditioned with our blood for years. She just doesn’t know it yet…
But Midnight Mayhem was the stained glass that concealed a very dark culture.
A culture that she is about to become the center of.
The Brothers of Kiznitch come in fours, and they’re not happy about me being hustled into their acts.
Or are we? Careful, Little Bird. A warning is a warning for a reason…
Mind-tricks.
Stunts.
Deceit.
Power.
But there’s something uglier that has been haunting me for years upon years. So ugly that I have never seen its face. I never had to. I’d hear his whispers through my internal screams, feel his shadow brush against my nightmares. He was the monster that tormented me.
And maybe lived under your bed…
When I started Midnight Mayhem, his presence faded.
His whispers were silenced.
His shadow dissolving without a trace.
I wondered why that was.
She didn’t have to wonder for long…  




My Review

On the Floor!! Like that’s totally where my jaw is! Hell where I am! About the time you think you kinda have a handle on what TF is happening you realize you know shit, that script gets flipped and your left going WTF just happened?!?! But Holy Hell that was freakin’ amazing!  

What a wild, crazy, mind-blowing carnival ride I’ve just been taken on. This book was truly a masterpiece. A one of a kind magical journey like nothing I have ever experienced before. I was instantly sucked into this incredible world that Amo Jones created for us and I’m not sure I ever want to leave it. 

Holy god the Kiznitch brothers!! These guys y’all! Each one unique and beautiful and dark and well, just delicious. Their personalities were so different yet they were all dangerous and sinister but had this underlying oddly protective nature about them. You didn’t want to cross them, that was for damn sure. 

“Revenge isn’t always sweet; sometimes, it’s a bitter reminder of the demons you missed, so you need to cock back, aim, reload, and…bang.”

Now, Kingston “King” Axton the most broody, and meanest of all the brothers. There was an overwhelming feeling of danger that just seemed to lurk around him. I felt like there was something big and shady about him. I didn’t know if he was a bad guy or a good guy, but unavoidably couldn’t help but to love him. But I hated him at the same time. I just  loved Dove so much and the way he was towards her was not only breaking her heart, it was destroying mine. This was one of those books where I swear every single time the H hurt the h , I felt a dagger in my own heart. Because I just felt to the depths of my soul that they were supposed to be together, and I couldn’t fathom how he couldn’t see it! And even with that I.STILL.LOVED.HIM!! 

Kingston, GAH at times I most definitely wanted to rip his head off at the same time as his clothes! I will say, I never could have saw the twist of why he had such hatred towards her coming though.I bow to you , Amo! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 But even when he wouldn’t have her, he wasn’t willing to let anyone else have her either, and that gave me so much hope. 

“I can’t fuckin’ share you, P. Ever. Even when you’re not mine officially, you’re still mine. That’s how it’s always going to be. I can’t fuckin’ function knowing you’re walking this earth, and it’s not me you’re walking it with. I can’t fuckin’ share you.”

Dove was the most strong-willed, beautiful , amazing  character. No matter how many times King tried to break her, and he tried, and tried. She kept pushing. She had been through the ringer. Through more than what she even realized, but she knew she wanted him and she wanted answers and she wasn’t going to give up until she got both. I loved that she wasn’t afraid to push his buttons to get him to give in to her. Deep down I think she knew their connection was real, even if she didn’t fully understand everything that was going on because so much of her life had been a series of flashbacks. I love that even in the midst of all that came out in the twists she held strong. She could have let it destroy her, but she didn’t. I’m being vague, I know, but trust me it’s necessary.

In Peace Lies Havoc should be your next read. It is dark, it’s extraordinary and astonishing. You will be breathless and on the edge of your seat. You will be stuck between wanting to rush through the next chapter to see what happens and slowly savoring it because you don’t ever want it to end. Forever the conundrum! So glad that this is the beginning of a series. Don’t worry though, this book is a stand alone. I’m so not ready to let this world go. IT’S WAY TOO FREAKIN HOTT!!

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- This deserves so many stars! For all the unforeseen, heart-stopping, jaw-dropping, moments that left me just plain bewildered! Please everyone READ THIS BOOK! Where my words may fail me, this book won’t fail YOU! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Ain’t nothing hotter y’all! Just…I would gladly bow to King 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy. This is the first book in a series, but can be read as a stand-alone.

Cold Queen Release Blitz & Review

Cold Queen

by K Webster Publication Date: October 29, 2019 Genres: Adult, Dark, Fantasy, Romance

Purchase: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

Blurb

In a cold, empty castle, a young queen is dying. Weak. Fragile. Disgraced. But Queen Whitestone is not alone in her final days. She has her beloved sister. Until a wicked king rides onto her land. Arrogant. Insufferable. Demanding. King Bloodsun has come with an offer…peace in trade for a bride. He wants the princess. The fiery king won’t take no for an answer. He vows to keep the cold queen captive until she gives in to his demands. A queen bows for no one, though. Not even when she’s frail and fading away. She’ll tap into her strength, protecting the only family she has left. The king is about to learn why they call her the cruel one…

My Review

Holy Shitballs Y’all!! This certainly ain’t Disney, Folks. But, it is a fantastic deliciously dirty fairytale for us grownups! 

Cold Queen is part of the sinister fairy tales collection, but can be read as a stand-alone. This is a twisted take on a version of Disney’s “Frozen” will have you hold you captive from the first page, just like King Bloodsun did to our Queen Whitestone. 

Now onto our devastatingly beautiful Cold Queen herself. Queen “Elizra” Whitestone is Queen of the Norta Iceland’s. She’s the Punisher of the Damned. She’s the Weathermaker and the creator of Diamondblades. But she is also dying from the same mysterious illness that claimed her mother’s life when she was very young. She is cold but she is also fierce. She is loving and protective over her younger sister, Yanna. For many years she has been feared by many, but with her declining health, she can feel her control slipping from her grasp.

The arrival of King Bloodsun completely throws her for a loop. She is rocked to her core when he lays down his proposition to marry her younger sister and merge their two kingdoms into a kingdom of power the likes of which had never been seen before. While he holds her as his prisoner of sorts while they work out the terms of the arrangement, she finds herself drawn to the handsome yet devious King.

What should disgust her makes her hot and melts her in ways no one has ever done before. He sees things that everyone else has overlooked and begins to take care of her, to nurture her and she finds herself falling hard and fast for him. Will she be able to step aside and let him marry her sister despite the feelings she has for him? Will Ryke open her eyes to things that have been going on right underneath her very nose? 

King “Ryke” Bloodsun is everything a powerful king and ruler of the South Volcanoes should be. He is a fire maker, truth seeker, strong in battle, beyond hot, and deep down He’s caring and loyal. When he arrived he had a planned to get permission from the Queen by any means necessary, to marry her sister Yanna and merge their two kingdoms. He never expected to be so instantly drawn to the beautiful dying queen. He being the truth seeker he is, notices right away that something is awry.

Next thing he knows he makes it his mission to seek the truth as to what’s killing his beautiful Queen. He vows to care for her and quickly starts melting that icy heart of hers. Will Ryke fall as hard for his freezing Cold sickly Queen, or will he proceed with the marriage to her sister?

Can King Bloodsun the Firemaker thaw her frozen heart for good while healing her dying body? Will he walk away when he gets what he wants? Is it his ability to make fire that has things heating up between him and Elizra or something else? 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- I will take a bow for this King. This book was an amazingly twisted ta that enraptured mefrom the get go. Ryke and Elizra were nothing short of spectacular. Get ready to be sucked into their dark and deceptively deviant world. You with fall almost instantly I love with this  deadly Anti-Hero and his equally sinister Cold Queen. The banter is OFF the Chain! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Go Right TF on and chuck the corset, drop the drawers, piss-off with the panties. Whatever you want to call it. This book is so FREAKIN HOT. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFHANGER! YASSS! 

Perfectly wrapped up ending for all.

Deviant King Release Blitz & Review

Blurb

The villain isn’t supposed to be king.

I have a simple plan.

Finish Royal Elite School and get into my dream university.

One glance from the school’s king blows my plan up in smoke.

One glance and he suffocates my air.

One glance and he issues his death sentence.

His first words spiral my life into irreparable chaos.

“I will destroy you.”

Everything about Aiden King is black.

Black mind.

Black heart.

Black soul.

I should’ve remained quiet and endured the time I have left.

I didn’t.

I made the irrevocable mistake of provoking the king on his throne.

The devil in his hell.

And now, I’ll pay the price.

Being hated by Aiden King is dangerous. 

But being wanted by him is lethal.

Those words seal my fate.

“I will destroy you. 

My Review


Holyyyy Cowwww! I’m mind blown! This book has left me caught between speechless and awe and flabbergasted! So many things going on in my head.

Going in I knew we were in for a wild and crazy ride.

Aiden “king of the school” King is the total alpha, the total bad boy you hate. But you know what? You’re totally all in love with all at the same time. He’s very complex and dark and so dangerously beautiful. There is just something about him that you’re drawn to. Maybe it’s the mystery surrounding him, definitely his good looks help. But one thing is for sure, he has set his sights on Elsa. He has this obsession with her, it’s depraved and dark and dominant. You do see bits a pieces of this almost caring guy mixed in at times, lurking just underneath that sinister smirk and plots of torture.

Elsa is essentially an orphan. Living with her aunt and uncle. She’s pretty , but not overdone and in a nerdy girl way. She just wants to fly under the radar and get through school. Aiden King put a target on her back on day one. She never understood why or what is was she did.

One of the things I loved about her was that she gave as good as she got. Aiden and Elsa could verbally spar like madd and it was HELLA HOTT!!! She wasn’t a pushover, much to his dismay. But her upbringing, man my heart hurt for her past. Then for some of these treatments she was receiving and sometimes I was like poor Elsa. Others I was like man, she is fierce! I love her!

Deviant King is NOT a stand-alone and I think we have barely begun to scratch the surface of the craziness that’s coming out way. I think there’s lots of mysteries still to uncover. Now, I’m not going to name anything specific as to not give any spoilers, but there’s some very odd pairings or “ friendships” and I’m curious to see how they play out and what comes of them. THAT CLIFFHANGER THOUGH! I really like the secondary characters. Elsa’s BFF, Kim and some of the Four Horseman. I can’t wait for more books in this series and hope we see lots more from them all.

Blurb: “Tell me a happy something, Sutton.”

I was only seven the first time Grady Bowen whispered those words to me. Cloaked by the black sky under a blanket of stars, it was easy to get lost. He didn’t have any good memories of his own, and needed to borrow mine. I’d willingly give him anything.

Being infatuated with that boy was a beautiful curse. What could have been special didn’t get the chance to bloom. He’d never see me as more than his best friend’s kid sister. That was a hard lesson to learn, but not the most difficult.

Grady had always been struggling against the odds. Eventually he quit fighting and let his family’s reputation own him. Try as I might, those influences were beyond my reach.

He didn’t mean to break my heart. Or maybe he did. I shouldn’t have made it so easy for him. Either way, our wrongs against each other carved new lines between us.

I went four years without seeing Grady—each one more painful than the last. That distance did nothing to dull my feelings toward him. But things are different now. Most noticeably is Grady. I barely recognize this man he’s become. And that’s the way he intends to keep it. Not that it really matters.

Grady Bowen stopped being my happy something long ago.

My Review

Oh My Heart y’all! This flipping story. I love Harloe Rae. I was excited for this book to hit my kindle and WOW! I’m not sure I was quite ready for the emotional beating it was packing though. GAH! It was so, so wonderful though. Grady and Sutton were perfectly made for each other. Their “happy moments “ absolutely melted my heart. Every.Dang.Time! Now, that’s not saying their journey was easy nor was it always perfect and beautiful, but it was their journey and in the end “ the juice was worth the squeeze.” 

Grady Bowen. 

Gorgeous and he was good to the depths of his soul. But only those closest to him gave him enough of a chance to ever know that. His upbringing broke my heart. For so many reasons he feels unworthy. He has secretly been in love with Sutton, his best friends sister for most of his life. She’s everything good and happy.

BUT he doesn’t feel he deserves her and she needs to find someone who does.  I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say anytime something starts to look up for him, another roadblock is thrown in his way. Will Grady ever get a break? Will he finally get to be with the girl of his dreams? And at what cost? 

Sutton is amazingly beautiful and comes from the best family. She has a supportive mother, father, yet super overprotective brother. But he loves her! For years she has secretly loved Grady. Right before she leaves for college she finally works up the nerve and lays it all on the line only to be left heartbroken and rejected. When she returns four years later determined to love on, her heart has other ideas. It’s knows that no matter what it has only ever belonged to one man, Grady Bowen. When she is finally able to convince Grady to take a chance obstacles starting to fall in their way. 

Will Grady and Sutton withstand the rumor mill and all that’s thrown at them?

Find out in this amazing, angsty, five star, MUST READ from Harloe Rae! 

I promise it will be worth all the headaches, heartaches, heartbreaks, and the book hangover you will be left with. 

 My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- SO much HEART in this one little book. This wasn’t what I was expecting from a brothers best friends romance. It was way better! It had me in my feelings and all angsty! The determination of the h to get her H and to make him see himself as she sees him. GAH! You could feel it all coming off the pages. Perfect! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-For Sutton and for Grady this was way worth the wait and so much more. Are you ready for simultaneous melting of your heart…and your panties. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFY Y’ALL!It doesn’t get any better than this! #PERFECTION

Excerpt: I take a closer inspection of this swoony charmer. Not an ounce of deceit registers in his expression. There’s no stony edge blocking his emerald stare. His ironclad guard is nonexistent. Zero inhibitions block the sliver of space between us. Everything is on display for me to see. I should be the one to stop this. He’s obviously not in his normal state and under the influence of hefty narcotics.

Who the hell am I kidding? Basking in a rare smile from Grady is a gift I won’t take for granted. Appreciating from a safe distance will be the true challenge. I test my willpower by trying to evade the sneaky fingers inching up my thigh. But our skin is magnetized and moving is impossible. The golden specks in his eyes glitter at my failed attempt. Yep, he’s onto me. I’m a goner.

As if there was another option.

The itch to comb through his shaggy hair tickles my fingertips. Would he lean into my embrace if I cupped his jaw? The tiniest bit of resolve stops me from acting on those impulses. But it doesn’t stop my brain from working overtime.

I wonder if anyone else has seen this side of him. The romantic in me wants to believe I’m the first, and hopefully only. I shove the fanciful notion aside. “Well, you sure seem to be in a great mood.”

That luscious bottom lip gets trapped between his teeth. I’d love to take a bite. As if hearing my thoughts, Grady rolls toward me. “Abso-fucking-lutely. Why wouldn’t I be? I have a gorgeous woman within reach, ready to take care of my aches and pains.”

This time I really do choke on my tongue. “W-what?”

The hand he has on my leg drifts higher. “You sound shocked, Sutt.”

How could I not be? “That’s an understatement.”

“Stay with me,” Grady croons.

“For the night?”

“For always.” His gaze is smoldering. Damn, he’s sexy. And irresistible. I’m liable to straddle his lap and offer him everything. But the chains of our past hold me hostage. I can’t fall victim so easily.

“Why now, Gray?” Whatever painkillers he’s on are proving to be an effective truth serum. I might as well use it to my advantage.

His blink is slow. “I miss the peace, Sutt. My slice of goodness.”

Dr. Dan Blog Tour & Review

Dr. Dan

A Taboo Treat by K Webster Publication Date: September 30, 2019 Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance, Standalone

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster, comes a new taboo treat standalone novel! Lauren will do anything besides face reality. Her truth won’t set her free because it’s too busy hunting her. It chases her into the ER more often than she can count. Dr. Venable is hellbent on finding answers for his most frequent hospital visitor. Even when his stunningly beautiful patient is difficult and resistant. He’ll uncover her pain because he wants nothing more than to heal the sassy young woman. Long nights. Rising temperatures. Feverish needs. They spend more time than ethical on their quest for answers. His position. Her age. Nothing will keep them apart. Not until they get what they came for. Love may not be a cure, but they’re going to test it anyway.

My Review

Dr. Dan is K. Webster’s quick read taboo treat about eighteen year old Lauren Englewood and forty-five year old Dr. Daniel Venable. About one doctor’s quest to toe the ethical line, and his struggle to  not only heal his sick patient but to make this sweet and innocent girl his. FOREVER! 

Lauren first meets Dr. Dan when she is brought into the ER on ST. Patty’s day after she gets sick at a party. She is initially short with him because he is the doctor treating her and wants to run some tests on her. Tests she is purposely avoiding. After another encounter in the ER and a chance run-in at the gym, Lauren starts to notice that Dr. Dan is extremely hot and she wants to know him on a more personal man to woman level. No longer opposed to the Doctor/Patient only contact. She quickly realizes that Daniel is all she could ever possibly want  in her life, but there are a lot of fears she is dealing with. She is hiding her health problems from everyone. How will her Dad and Brother respond when they discover shes been keeping not one but two very big life concerning secrets from them? 

Dr Daniel Venable had waited all his life for his “Person”. Forty-five years to be exact! He was almost instantly sure that person was Lauren. He knew she was young, but it really made no difference to him what-so-ever! HE didnt care what other people thought. He loved being a doctor and he loved Lauren being His. All he wanted to do was make her happy and help her get better. How will Daniel cope when He can’t medically fix what’s wrong? 

This is a quick read. I read it in just a few hours. Now, I will be completely honest and say that due to the genre label this one got as ‘Taboo”  because of the subject of the doctor/patient and the huge age gap, I was expecting this to be a much dirtier read. Don’t get me wrong, I love K. Webster, like l DEVOUR her books, but this one just fell a little flat for me. I do think it was only because our beautiful Lauren was so sick and unable to be the vibrant girl she would be had she not been sick. I really believe had she been well , we would have had that dirty,dirty mind-blowingly explosive sex between the H and h that we were expecting. Now, with that said, I think K. Webster wrote it perfectly for this book though. I think Dan is most definitely alpha AF and would show no mercy in the sack. However he would never hurt his sweet angel, and she was simply way too sick for most of this book. We did have love scenes. They were hot, and relatively tame in comparison to some of her other works. But they were sensual and loving between Dan and Lauren with some dirty talkin’ thrown in there. Most of this book focuses on Lauren and her illness and how they are responding to that. It is a great love story. There really isn’t a whole lot of angst or anything. It’s just a love story for a couple that had some speed bumps on their road to HEA!

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

★★★★- I Love K. Webster. This book was pretty sweet for one of her stories. I enjoyed this book. While I wasn’t blown away ,I did enjoy Dr. Dan and Lauren’s Story. 

🔥🔥🔥- Due to the health problems of our h in the book there weren’t a lot of scenes. They were sweet, enough heat with some dirty talk.  

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-NO CLIFFHANGER This book had HEA that I think will make everyone happy.

Blurb: Falling for the enemy has never been so deliciously complicated in this standalone romance where a sexy single dad meets his unexpected match! Get ready for all the feels!

Never have I ever been so infuriated by a man I wanted to kiss.

They say opposites attract, but I beg to differ. Combust is more like it. Because every single time I talk to Zach Nolan, I see red.

The too-good-looking, too-smart, too-effortlessly charming single dad who works down the hall from me has turned getting under my skin into a sport. Call it the battle of wits between the wedding planner and the divorce attorney.

Trouble is, when we’re forced into closer quarters planning an engagement party for our best friends, I start to see his other sides.

And I fear I’m falling for the enemy.

***

I’m not out to make friends. My goals are simple — fight till the end for my clients, and my family.

The last thing I need is a vibrant, outgoing, snarky, and surprisingly big-hearted wedding planner to spend my precious free time with…except, watching Piper bond with my daughter just might break down the cinder block walls I’ve built around my heart these last few years.

Second chances don’t come around for guys like me…or do they?

My Review

Emotion overload!! In.The.Best.Way.Ever! This book was like the perfect blended cocktail of deliciousness! 

It was, all at once… A frenemies-to-lovers, a second chance romance, and a single dad romance. So perfect y’all! 

Zach and Piper ran in the same social circles back in college. Zach became a divorce attorney and Piper became a wedding planner extraordinaire They were most definitely frenemies. Zach like to run off at the mouth about how he thinks couple will fare in their marriages. Piper being a wedding planner did not appreciate that. AT.ALL! 

Fast forward to ten years after college and Zach is now a widower with two kids and a successful shark of lawyer. Now… One would expect him to be mean and jaded and angry at the world because of what all he’s lost, but he’s actually wonderful. He’s an amazing dad, great brother, and fantastic friend. Even his motivation for wanting to become a lawyer is not what you would expect. He just wants to be a great lawyer, help his clients and raise amazing kids.

When best man and maid of honor duties require him and Piper to spend more time together, that thin line between love and hate starts to blur. Zach and Piper find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of a friends-with-benefits arrangement that quickly becomes so much more than either of them could have ever expected. 

Will this budding, err relationship be able to go anywhere when they are hiding it from everyone they know? 

I absolutely loved Piper! She was sassy and sweet and beautiful and I want to be her BFF! But she was also selfless and giving and would do anything for those she loved. I loved what she did for her sister. My heart melted at her sweet friendship with Lucy. She was so giving to everybody else I wanted her to get her HEA probably more than I have wanted that for a character in a long time, and she was a strong gal. She wasn’t broken or damaged. She was just so good at heart she deserved all the goodness life has to offer. 

This book was full of fabulous secondary characters. Zach’s adorable kiddos, Lucy and Henry. The rest of their college crew and friends. It added even more to an already fantastic story. Then the steam. Oh.My.Gosh! The hotness factor in this book. I loved every. single,  I needed to fan myself moment of it!  

These are my favorite kinds of second chance romances where a widower/widow and children are involved. This book talked about it,  but didn’t harp on it to the point of depression. This book was fun, hot, hilarious and sweet. It was perfect. I definitely recommend it. 

⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐-This was the BEST second chance romance. It was sweet and Hot, funny and just perfect it had the absolute best secondary characters. I loved Zach’s kids. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- HOLY HOTNESS! That’s it! Just whooo! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy! Y’all are going to love this HEA as much as I did.I just know it! #PERFECTION

Cruel Boy Release Blitz & Review

Title: Cruel Boy
Author: Clarissa Wild
Genre: Dark Bully Romance
Release Date: September 30, 2019
𝙍𝙞𝙘𝙝 𝙗𝙤𝙮𝙨 𝙨𝙞𝙣 𝙗𝙚𝙨𝙩. Gossip always goes around at Falcon Elite Prep.
Everyone knows Nate Wilson, the most popular football quarterback and every girl’s crush.
But there’s more behind those drop-dead gorgeous eyes and that killer smile …
He’s a notorious heartbreaker …
And he’s got his eyes set on me.
The twisted games he plays are cruel and dangerous.
He teases and tempts me … just to ruin me.
Because I know the one thing he doesn’t want anyone to know.
A big, dirty secret …
And there’s nothing bad boys won’t do to keep a secret buried.
“Your phone’s not here. I’m sorry to disappoint you,” he says, stepping closer. “Anything else I can help you with?”
“I … uh …” God, why am I this way around him? It doesn’t make any sense. He’s a bully. I should hate him. But oh my God, I want to kiss him so badly too, and it shows.
For every step he takes closer, I take one back even though my body hungers to get close. I shouldn’t give in; it’s not right. Everyone in this school thinks he’s guilty. Hell, maybe even I do. I don’t know yet.
But what I do know is that he’s beyond bad, and I’m melting into a puddle just from that dirty look in his eyes as he traps me in a corner. No way out. This is it. We’re in the showers backed up against a wall. Hormones rage through my body as he places a hand on the wall beside me and cocks his head.
“Are you still scared of me?” he asks.
I rub my lips together. I can’t say because I don’t know the answer.
“I don’t … know. I don’t know anything anymore,” I whisper.
“You don’t know, or you don’t want to know?”
I try to find the truth in his eyes, but all I find is hunger … a kind of hunger that you can feel in your bones and consumes your every waking thought.
“You’re scared that you actually like me,” he murmurs. His forehead leans against mine. “You’re scared of what might happen if you let me kiss you,” he whispers, his mouth a hair’s breadth away from mine. “You’re scared of what might happen if you let me have you … If you become mine.”
Suddenly, the showers turn on right above us. Fuck, I must’ve hit them with my back. We’re getting soaking wet, but he’s not moving … and neither am I.
“You threw me in the pool. Hung my panties on my locker. Made fun of me in front of your friends,” I mutter, trying to create more distance, trying to push him away, trying to make up reasons this shouldn’t happen. “You heard Layla when she said—”
He places a finger on my lips, droplets of water dripping down onto my skin. “I don’t give a fuck what Layla says or thinks. I only give a fuck about what you think of me.”
His words strike me to my core.
Never in a million years did I imagine this happening, that I’d be standing here getting soaking wet in the locker rooms with Falcon Elite Prep’s worst bad boy, the star athlete, and most popular guy at school … and that I’d want nothing more than to kiss him.
“I did those things to get my way, to get you to fear me, to get you to submit …” he murmurs. “To get what I want.”
“The photos,” I reply.
“And you,” he whispers, gazing straight into my eyes, setting my heart on fire. “I want you, and I know you want me too.”
Our lips touch, and sparks fly. The first touch is always the best, where our lips still linger on should-I-or-should-I-not. But we both know that phase has long since passed. I can’t say no to him anymore.
And suddenly, his kisses aren’t so soft anymore. His mouth claims mine with a greed I’ve never felt before, and it excites me to my core. His hand is on my waist, his body against mine, and I can feel every ridge of his muscles, every inch of skin against my own … and the bulge poking against my belly.
It turns me on like nothing else ever has.
The hand that was on the wall entwines with mine as our tongues lock and engage in a battle of lust. Suddenly, he grabs my wrists and pins them up against the wall, and I can’t. Fucking. Breathe.

My Review

Wow! Just Wow! Talk about a Bully Turned Boyfriend Material! Nate Wilson was everything to everyone.

 The star QB✔️

 Hottest most popular guy in school✔️

 Broody attitude for days✔️

Muscles and Abs that make girls weak in the knees✔️

But what Nate Wilson also has was a deep dark secret! The one person who could expose that secret was Samantha “Sam” Cook. Now…She’s on his radar. She has something that he wants and he will stop at nothing to get it. He’s not above using his good looks and charms as a way to manipulate. Is it all for show or will he genuinely start to have real feelings for Sam before it’s all over? 

Sam knows she saw something she shouldn’t have that night, but she isn’t certain of exactly what happened. Nate has made it his mission to torment, bully and destroy her to get what he wants. What happens when even with the horrific treatment by Nate, Sam still finds herself falling down a rabbit hole of mixed emotions and starts getting caught up in all things Nate Wilson? Will Sam fall into the lure of Nate or will she hold strong during all the bullying and badgering? 

Nate is most definitely a good anti-hero! He’s hot, but he’s ruthless, cruel and unapologetic in his continued tormenting of Sam. He knows she has what he wants and holds his future in her hands because one call with the information she has could send his entire house of cards crumbling before him, but would she really do that? 

Sam is actually a really tough cookie. For all she is being put through, she is dishing out as much as she’s taking! Her home life has not been exactly hunky-dory and then add in the way she’s bullied at school you’d think this girl would be a broken mess, but she’s  not. She’s really awesome and forgiving and non-judge mental towards Nate. 

This was a slow-burn but with mega chemistry! There was just this fantastic dance around each other for the longest time. Then BOOM! That’s the absolute best! I would definitely recommend this for anyone who loves Bully/NA romance with a suspense twist!
