PIECES OF A LIFE RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW

Pieces of a Life, part one in an all new duet in the Life series by Jewel E. Ann is now live!

The summer before fourth grade, Colten Mosley moved into the house across the street from mine, and we became inseparable.

He played the piano and baseball.
I had a penchant for dead things while at the same time imagining what it would be like to kiss Colten.
We were filled with curiosity and overly active imaginations.

We were also forbidden to be more than friends.
But that didn’t stop us.

Weeks before graduation, he annihilated my heart, and it’s been seventeen years since the day I knew I’d hate him forever.

Now he’s back in my life–a single dad and a homicide detective looking over my shoulder while I perform autopsies as one of Chicago’s most gifted forensic pathologists. Then fate throws us a curveball.

Colten saves my life, but he can’t erase the images that now keep me awake at night. And I can’t explain them.

Am I still the girl he’s always loved? Or nothing more than pieces of that life?

Holy Cow my mind is a jumbled mess right now, and I love it! I’m convinced Jewel. E. Ann could write anything and I would devour it. Rom com, yep. Contemporary, absolutely. Romantic suspense, yes please. Her grocery list, all signs point to yes. Anything and everything. Her latest story, Pieces of a Life, book three in the Life series, is just another example of the magnificence of her writing. Her ability to get quickly immerse readers in the story never ceases to amaze me. I know from the very beginning I fell hard and fast for Colten and Josie and couldn’t wait to read their history leading up to present day that has brought these once childhood sweethearts back into each other’s lives. One wanting nothing more that to get back what they lost seventeen years ago. The other set on not giving in to the one that destroyed their heart all those years ago. 

Detective Colten Mosley is fantastic at his job. That job brings him face to face with the one person he’s never really gotten over, the only person he has truly ever loved. Also the person whose heart he obliterated in senior year of high school. Josie Watts was his best friend growing up, until she was his everything. He has always known that given the chance he would never let her go again. No matter what. 

Josephine Watts was a feisty and inquisitive girl when she was young. She definitely had unique interests. But she has always been unapologetically who she is. As she got older the dynamics between her and Colten changed and they became so much more. She thought they were planning a future together but apparently the only future he had in store for her was heartache. 

Seventeen years later both are back in their home town both successful in their careers. Career fields that put them in contact with each other on the regular. Push and pull and old feelings resurface. Then an event  noone could have expected. I was left breathless, warring with what is happening and what it means for the future for Colten and Josie. I am obsessed with this duet already and CANNOT WAIT for the conclusion. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up

⭐️Star Rating~⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️~ Five, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the conclusion to this duet. STARS!!

💭Overall Thoughts~ All the delicious back and forth you crave. This second chance, frenemies to lovers, romantic suspense, with a pinch on paranormal/psychic twist is unputdownable and addictive. I can’t get enough of Jewel E. Ann’s writing. Every book is going to instantly grab my attention and hold me prisoner ( lock me up, baby) from the first word to the last. I instantly one-click any of her releases. Her ability to transition from past to present, trope to trope and flawlessly from one characters POV to the other is so smooth and makes it so easy to just plow right on through. This is for sure one of my TOP DUETS of 2022!

⚠️TRIGGERS~This book has some content that could be disturbing to some readers. Elements of Childhood traumatic death, Death, Scientific specifics surrounding death.( Autopsies etc.) If you would like more specific information feel free to PM me for more specific details.    

🌶HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶🌶 Yummy, Hot, Spicy

Vengeance of a Mafia Queen Release Blitz & Review

𝓥𝓮𝓷𝓰𝓮𝓪𝓷𝓬𝓮 𝓸𝓯 𝓪 𝓜𝓪𝓯𝓲𝓪 𝓠𝓾𝓮𝓮𝓷 is now LIVE and available to download FREE from Kindle Unlimited! It’s my new dark, drama-filled enemies-to-lovers stand-alone mafia romance!

𝐁𝐎𝐎𝐊 𝐃𝐄𝐒𝐂𝐑𝐈𝐏𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍

𝙁𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙢𝙮 𝙬𝙖𝙨 𝙣𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙥𝙖𝙧𝙩 𝙤𝙛 𝙢𝙮 𝙥𝙡𝙖𝙣…

Losing my innocence at thirteen, in the most brutal way, changed me. My kidnapper stole my childhood and tried to break me. The knowledge my father orchestrated the entire situation hardened my heart, and instead of grieving his death, I celebrated it.

One down. Many more to go.

My burning need for revenge has only grown over the years, keeping me focused on my goals and enabling my rise to power.

Made men are weak. A pretty face and the promise of a good time easily distracts them.

Now, I’m in charge.

Men bow before 𝘮𝘦.

Except for 𝘩𝘪𝘮—the brother of my abductor. Massimo fights me every step of the way, but I’m not about to let the explosive chemistry between us deter me from my chosen path. His family is my enemy. 𝘏𝘦 is my enemy, even if he doesn’t know it yet.

I won’t stop until all those who wronged me are punished.

By the time they realize I’m coming, it will be too late.

They tried to take everything from me.

But where they failed, I will succeed.

Unless 𝘩𝘦 becomes 𝘮𝘺 weakness.

My Review

Holy Freaking Moly!! This is truly a masterpiece the likes of which I have never read anything quite like before. Siobhan Davis delivers her most remarkable and unforgettable story to date!! I absolutely love how she has really got into her writing groove when it comes to writing dark mafia romance but this story was something even more uniquely unexpected. I went in fully expecting it to be flipping amazing. But amazing doesn’t even begin to capture just how phenomenal this story truly was. 

An unforgettable heroine with a past so devastating and tragic I was shook but couldn’t step away because this story was so addictive and I was beyond immersed in Catarina’s story. I couldn’t put this book down. I had to know what happened that made her who she is and why she was the way she is now as an adult. How she became the very embodiment of revenge and retaliation. I love how her character is written. How she encompasses everything throughout her journey, hurt and heart, hatred and healing. She’s complex and all consuming and so well written. Unlike any character from any book I have ever read before. Totally unique and one I will not soon forget. 

Massimo is the perfect man for her. He saw her for what she was and wanted her to see herself as he did. He wanted her to see him as the perfect King to her Queen. He was just enough Alpha and strong but at the same time patient and firm but not cruel. He knew just how to handle her. The chemistry between these two was utterly explosive. I’m trying not to give anything specific away here as that is not nice in my opinion. The deliciousness is in the details my friends and let me tell you this author spared NO.ATTENTION.TO.DETAILS and I will let her deliver those to you with her words in this wonderful book. It was IMO perfection! 

If you need a fantastically fabulous book to kick start your summer… Vengeance of a Mafia Queen has it all. 

✔️Dark and Deliciously Dynamic Characters

✔️An unforgettably phenomenal storyline

✔️Scorching Hot Chemistry 

✔️Twists and Turns for Days

✔️Amazing Attention to Details

✔️Heartbreak 💔, Healing ❤️‍🩹 , and a HEA

If you read nothing else this month read VOAMQ!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Sabotage Release Blitz & Review

Sabotage, an all-new darkly depraved and enthralling romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now! 

COLTON

Raylee Lexington Adams is my stepsister and the one woman in the world who can make my blood boil.

She’s vindictive, a lot of crazy, and absolutely stunning.

I hate everything about her except for when she’s on her knees begging me to use her as my own personal toy.

We’ve been playing a game of cat and mouse for far too long. We have used each other for our own sick pleasure.

I’ve ruined every relationship my little princess has ever had. A sure way that she’ll come crawling back to me, begging me for what only I can give her when another man fails her.

But I got tired of watching others get a piece of what is mine. So, I did what any rational man would do—I staked my claim, showed the world that she belonged to me, and I’m going to do whatever it takes to make her believe it too. 

RAYLEE

Colton Remington Knox is a man I despise but can’t say no to.

He’s what any girl would call a walking red flag. But I’ve never claimed to be a smart woman when it comes to men. Why should he be any different?

I’ve always managed to hold my own against him. But this time, he’s gone too far. Posting a video of me on my knees for him, for what? To brag? Embarrass me? He’s acting like he doesn’t know me very well.

Colt wants to play a game? I’ll do whatever it takes to make sure I win. No matter what it costs me. People already think I have no dignity, so why let them down now?

My Review

HOLY HOT FREAKING HELL!! 

Shantel, My Sinful Shockfactor Queen!!

You have done it again! Sabotage is delightfully dirty and devastatingly depraved from the opening scene. It’s unforgettable and completely consuming with its explosive chemistry and intoxicating mixture of anger, hatred, revenge, and even provocative love. 

Raylee and Colton have what is considered a taboo relationship. They also have a very much Hate/Hate relationship for most of the book, and that’s what makes it so tantalizingly toxic. 🖤 But I also happen to think the line between hate and love is very thin. Plus we are dealing with two people who are not very good at sharing and are most definitely very jealous and possessive and can be very over the top about it.  Plus can you imagine having it bad for someone you can’t have?! Doesn’t forbidden fruit always taste the sweetest? 😈

What I love about these characters is that they are unapologetic about who they are and what they each bring to the table when they are together. Unapologetic in how they fight with and for and about each other. Which I happened to think was hot, so dang hot. 🥵🔥 Raylee is a tough cookie and she likes what she likes. I mean she knows how she may be looked at by others but she just chucks in the I don’t give frogs fat fanny bucket and and moves on and gets hers. I envy that part of her. To be that free in that way. Colt just does it for me. I admit I’m a little twisted. Colt and all the craziness and twisted turns he will bring your way. What a ride you have coming for you.This book has so much mind blowing going on. I’m still processing. Yaaasss!

OMG!  There aren’t words that can describe to you how hot these scenes are. Shantel has a gift, the mind of the money shot. Things you couldn’t have even imagined you’d want to read but you are instantly insanely obsessed over. She will push you out of your comfort zone, test your boundaries and have you questioning your own desires. I’m absolutely amazed by all the ways in which She manages to captivate us all with the words at the tips of her talented little fingers.  Phenomenal job!🙌🏻🙌🏻

So in closing…

I am not going to give anything specific about this book away because I despise spoilers. If you have any concerns please read the 

⚠️⚠️TRIGGER WARNINGS⚠️⚠️ at the beginning of the book. 

If you don’t have triggers Go.In.Blind! It will give you the best reading experience ever! 

Here is MY TWO CENTS! 

Pearl Clutchers BEWARE! 

If you are easily shocked, you need to beware too! 

If you are prone to use statements like ‘Oh my” or “ Well I Declare” you’re gonna have issues as well! 

If sick, twisted, sinful and deviant behavior makes you want to gasp in revulsion and tell your best friend Peggy Sue about these Heathens, there is probably another book out there for you. 

MORAL POLICE- CHECK YOURSELF AND MOVE TF ON!!

But… My ladies, my people that didn’t bat an eye,  Come to me. Come on over and sit by me on the dark side,  cause it’s time for book club. 📖🍸🥃🌮
