Blurb

This holiday season, there’s more than gingerbread in the oven.
I was always a type-A kind of girl— and that’s exactly what got me into trouble with Sterling
Ahren.
Having a baby before thirty didn’t work out, so I took some time off to sort out my life.
Sterling’s my new landlord… and he doesn’t plan anything.
He’s a billionaire playboy who can’t stand the holidays. A recluse of the worst kind, Sterling
makes Scrooge look like a generous soul… except Ebenezer was never this sexy.
He doesn’t want a family— until the night we have a spontaneous one-night stand, and forget to
use condoms. I can’t have a baby with a disorganized, free spirit like him. Between my
overprotective brothers and his crazy fans, I already know this isn’t going to work out.
Except Sterling isn’t willing to let me go. He wants me home for the holidays… and this is my
last chance to make a Christmas miracle happen.
One thing I know for sure: when Sterling and I collide, it’s going to be anything but a silent
night.
Funny, touching, and delightful, this smoking hot billionaire holiday rom-com by Claudia
Burgoa will make you feel the magic of Christmas.

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.

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.

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!

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- This was a really good Bully romance. It was pretty fast moving, had just enough going on that it kept you interested but no overwhelmed! I really like the main characters. .

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Super HAWT Y’all! The push and pull slow burn of this book was EVERYTHING! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffhanger. Ended on a Happy Note. However, epilogue wasn’t really into the future. 

Clarissa Wild is a New York Times & USA Today Bestselling author of Dark Romance and Contemporary Romance novels. She is an avid reader and writer of swoony stories about dangerous men and feisty women. Her other loves include her hilarious husband, her two crazy but cute dogs, and her ninja cat that sometimes thinks he’s a dog too.

Holding on to Forever Review

BLURB:

ADAM

Returning to my drug-dealing past wasn’t on the agenda when I accepted the full ride to play ball at Cypress U. But Mom lost her job. And my sister’s medical bills are mounting. So, I’ve no choice but to change the playbook.

When Emily walks into my life, like a fallen goddess with the ultimate power to destroy me, I know I’m screwed. I should steer clear, but I’m the one supplying her poison of choice. Falling for her is a complication I don’t need, but the more she’s around, the harder it gets to walk away. She needs me, and I crave her more than the sport I love.

Now, it’s all on the line. Including the NFL career that’s tantalizingly close.

The stakes are high, but family means everything, so I’ll take my chances.

EMILY

It’s only a problem if it’s out of control. And I have it in hand.

Except a certain a-hole discovers I’m using again, and he threatens to rat me out to my folks. Mom’s president of Cypress U, and Dad’s the illustrious football coach. Appearances mean everything to them, and I’m a continuous disappointment.

They told me I’d be out on my ass if I fell off the wagon, so keeping it a secret is my number one priority.

Until the super-hot all-star QB takes more than a passing interest in me. Adam gets me, in a way no guy ever has, filling my head with ideas of forever—and now, I want more.

Dating my dealer is a recipe for disaster, especially when it’s forbidden, but I can’t help myself.

Because I’ve fallen too deep.

And the hole is too large to crawl out of.

Holy Moly Y’all! I’m In Love with a Molly Peddling Drug Dealer! One would think, the drug dealer dude would be the horrible, bad guy of the book, right? Not in this case. Well… Not really.  He is EVERYTHING!

Adam, our H, is not only the extremely gorgeous and  talented QB of the Cypress University football team, but the most devoted son and brother ever. The bond he has with not only his mother, but his sick little sister Phoebe, is as sweet as grandma’s molasses!

Adam is smokin’ hot, has a fabulous chance at a future in the NFL,  and he is an absolutely all around good guy. Like, legit you won’t find a better one. GAH! I just totally swooned!

When faced with lack of funds, but trying to do something sweet and noble, Adam finds himself back to doing something he said he would never do again, dealing drugs for cash. I found myself so sympathetic for this amazingly precious guy. I was okay with what he was doing. Hell, I might’ve done it myself. Not really, but! He was desperate, and you know what they say about desperate times and all that.

 He semi-struggled with his decision from the get go. It’s not like he loved that job. He needed cash and it paid well, but it meant lying to people he cared about. He has a great mom, adorable sister with health issues and his roommate was like a brother and part of his little family. His coach like a father to him in some ways and he was working really hard to ensure Adam had his chance at a bright future. But none of that paid the bills right? All should be easy peasy huh? Then Adam is knocked off his game when he runs into his dream girl on a drug run.

They fall hard and fast. 

Will he be able to convince her to pick him over the drugs

 Does she want him for him,or for what he can supply her with?  When old secrets come out, can Adam handle seeing the dark past this beautiful girl is hiding? 

Emily is a complex character. Daughter of the President of the University and the Head Football Coach. She’s gorgeous, but so deeply damaged and god how my heart hurt for her. She’s hiding a world of devastation behind a drug induced cloud and secrets she’s buried inside for years. People right in front of her have no idea what this poor girl has been through and continues to be tortured with. Excuses were being  made by the very ones that should’ve been protecting her. Adam knows Exactly what she needs.

 I was so glad when she met Adam because for once she seemed to have something good in her life. Good GraciousI just wanted Adam to kiss it and make it all better. He looked at her like no one else had ever looked at her before. Oh.My.Heart! 

What will happen if her dad finds out out his star QB is dating his daughter who is strictly off limits to his players? How will Emily respond to the perfectly planned out future her mom has in store for her if it doesn’t include Adam? Devastating secrets are revealed and how Emily responds can determine the future for her and Adam. Can her and Adam remain Holding on to Forever? Or Will they lose everything? This is a MUST READ to find out all of this and SO much more!! Perfect blend of just the right amount of sweet, heat, happy, sad, frustrating, brokenness and strong characters in this angsty , new adult/ college romance. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- Siobhan Davis and S.B. Alexander scored a touchdown with this one!  This book tackled some pretty heavy stuff, but the way it was handled and their approach to the book as a whole leaves you with a good feeling! The love story was actually really sweet and super hot and so the nasty stuff the characters went through didn’t leave you feeling down and depressed in the end.  I loved the supporting characters. I am a total SAM fan!! Phoebe forever!

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Adam and Emily were beyond hot! Y’all!There were not a ton of bedroom scenes , but the ones we got were HOTT!! SO.Freakin’Yummy! I think what makes it even hotter was that he treated her so different from how anyone else ever has. Like she was a rare and precious jewel and he was honored to have it! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-NO CLIFFY! I  Love Endings Like This #Perfection
