I had a plan, and it was solid.

 

Track down what was hidden away and take pleasure in toying with it. 

Toying with her. 

 

That plan, it worked like a charm.

Until it didn’t. 

 

Turned out, the feisty little thing I found was far from what I hoped for. 

She was different from all I knew and more than I expected.

 

She was light, and I’m the bastard who led her into darkness.

But this girl… she followed with a smile.

 

I told her I break pretty things.

She asked me to promise. 

My Review 

img_0019

OMG!! Break Me! Royce Brayshaw is something else. Break Me it did indeed. Royce and Brielle broke me over and over again. I think I knew even before I read this book that I was going to truly take the most special, most spectacular of heroines to tame our Uncle Bro.

img_2486

He is the most rowdy, the most broken, the one with arguably the biggest heart. His journey to love was gonna to be full of angst, heartache and, frustration and fears. For such a broken boy as he, we just knew he would fight like hell not to be vulnerable. 

Brielle was absolutely the perfect match “Tink” for Royce her “Lost Boy” in every single way! She was feisty and sassy and for all intents and purposes she had every right to give life the big ol’ middle finger but she was still a total sweetheart. With Royce she definitely gave as good as she got,  but he totally needed to be put in his place that way. He needed a girl that would verbally spar with him not just roll over and smile and bat her eyes at everything he said. I’m so sad to see the end of this series but couldn’t have been happier with Royce’s ending. I cried SO many times during this book. 

img_2395

This was a hard fought battle to HEA. It’s hard when people don’t think they are deserving of the good things that come their way. My poor heart. I didn’t know how much more I could take. But like she always does, Meagan Brandy being the perfect craftswoman of words she is,  brings us to the brink, emotionally breaking us before she will perfectly put us back together again in the end. Get ready to feel all the feelings! Love, frustration, heat, sex, lies, surprises, tears, forgiveness. Just everything. A bunch of constellations of stars for Royce and Brielle!! 🌌⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’m here for it all! 😍😭♥️🔥♥️😍

Excerpt

 

“What do you know about being a BrayGirl?”

I open my mouth to respond, but he speaks again before I’m able.

“Be straight-up with me, little Bishop,” he warns. “No bullshit.”

Okay, fine.

I lay out what I’ve learned. “I know it’s what people call the girls who spend their nights with you or your brothers, or anyone who has earned the Brayshaw name.”

“Morning, afternoons, we ain’t picky on time of day, baby girl.” He’s angry and hard focused. “Keep going.”

“It’s a girl who is on lockdown. Untouchable to everyone, watched by all to keep her from doing things a Bray wouldn’t like or things she shouldn’t. Basically, she’s bound in bubble wrap, only to be undone by her man.”

“Temporary man,” he fires off.

“Right.” I shake my head in disdain. “Because she’s good enough for his bed, but not his heart.”

His jaw clenches. “You the type?”

“You’ll never know…”

Sicko Blog Tour & Review

SICKO by Amo JonesRelease Date: September 1stAdd to Goodreads:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50489991-sicko

AVAILABLE NOW!!FREE in Kindle Unlimited!Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3epdGz2Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/34XLiTxAmazon CA: https://amzn.to/2YMioS8Amazon AU: https://amzn.to/34J0L9B

Blurb:He was my foster brother.He swore to protect me.He failed.They all failed.I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.He answers to Sicko.

My Review

WOW!! Just WOW! Amo Jones has dang near left me speechless. In a puddle of emotions, all of my feelings torn to shreds. I was absolutely broken by the incredible masterpiece that is Sicko, before Amo Jones put me back together piece by piece. Let me start by saying that I think that Amo is incredibly talented and she gets better with every book she writes. As soon as I know she has a new book coming out, I immediately add it to my TBR,  block out my schedule for it. This book was no different. It was everything I was hoping for, yet absolutely nothing like I was expecting it to be. It. Was.So.Much.More! 

Royce and Jade’s characters are phenomenally written. Royce first meets Jade, when she is brought into the family as a baby (a foster)  and then adopted by them. As they grew up they always had a special connection, but when they grew to teens it became an entirely different type of love and connection between them. Royce’s love caused him to be alpha and protective. Jade might have been young but it was more than jealousy and infatuation. 

“We fight a lot, but we love hard and when it comes to him and me, one cannot exist without the other. “

Their story is dark and tragically devastating. Parts of it hurt badly to read. I was broken down and torn apart. I hurt for these two characters who were inevitably meant for one another. Royce left her right on the cusp of them finally getting to be together, and it devastated her. What she endured after was the stuff nightmares are made of, but it showed us the strength and resilience of this beautifully crafted character. She was amazing. She was a warrior, perseverance personified. Complex and strong. I rooted and cheered for her to get her happy ending. Because if anyone deserved it, it was most certainly her. 

Royce/Sicko shredded me when he left Jade. I didn’t understand it. But…I knew and trusted that Amo would reveal to us why and who was behind Royce leaving and hurting Jade. However , the chain of events that happened to our Jade after he left was shocking, and unpredictable. It left me breathless and awestruck. I hung on every syllable of this book. Dangling on the edge of my seat. It was the perfect blend of dark and devastating, delicious and deviant. It was heartbreaking but at the same time full of hope. Truly it was the best kind of story. Triumph over tragedy, and what I love the most about dark romance. It was the forbidden dark romance I was looking for and didn’t even know it. At its very deepest, and darkest core, Amo Jones tells us a tragically beautiful tale of true love so strong that it slays the nastiest of demons, overcomes the most horrific of obstacles and forgiveness that heals even the most shattered and broken. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-  This is a book this is almost impossible to sum up in a few sentences. Because this book is one I will think about for a long time to come. It’s one that you won’t be the same after reading. So you definitely need to read this book!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Oh My god. Hot Smokin’ Hades!!🔥Royce and Jade are off the charts hot. And don’t even get me started on the addition of Wicked! Because I.Am.Dead.💀

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! However, I would sell all I own for Wicked’s book right about now or very soon.

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some, just as the author warns in the beginning. It is what you would expect from a Dark/MC Romance. They are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

About the Author:Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Always Crew Blog Tour &; Review

Always Crew, the all-new emotional and angsty finale of the Crew series by New York Times bestselling author Tijan is available now!

always crew cover

For the longest time, I was Bren Monroe. I lived in Roussou, California. I had no parents, no brother, but I had a crew.

Then things started to change. I never planned for any of it. I didn’t think I’d fall in love. I didn’t think I’d have a relationship with my brother again. I didn’t think that he’d come back.

Now I’m in Cain. My crew is in college. They’re growing, going through their own things. And here I am, figuring out my life.

There’s always hurdles and obstacles to overcome. That was never my hardship. That was my regular. But living? Being content? Being happy? Those were my challenges now.

Everything was going well… Until it wasn’t. Again.

A/N: Always Crew is the conclusion of the Crew Series, and a 106k novel.

My Review

Tijan slayed this book! Like she REALLY Slayed this book!!

I have loved this series from the very beginning. From the first book of this series to the very last word of Always Crew I have been enamored by the complexity of these characters. 

Always Crew picked up where Crew Princess left off. That shocking spot that left us all breathless going WTF?!?! 

Always Crew also starts by showing us our beloved Crew in a more grown up light because they are all off to college, well… most of them are. They are maturing. Things are changing for our  Bren, Cross, Jordan and Zellman, they are changing. 

Bren remains the most Bren-like when she finds herself struggling not to go back to being like the dark Bren she’s tried so hard to get away from, from being known as. When she is forced to face the past. Cross and the guys are right there doing everything they can as always to bring Bren back from the brink of that darkness. 

This book is still full of all the action and suspense we’ve come to love and expect from our crew. So much happens and I’m gonna to be vague because I don’t want to give too much away so you can enjoy it like I did. It’s got the angst and the sex. But we also get a feel of Bren’s internal battles. She’s wondering just where she’s gonna fit in this new grown up world when her goals are not quite the same as the guys who are focused on school and the activities surrounding it. I love the way they find a way to make it work though.

I love this crew BIG, their commitment to each other, their little family dynamic. From the new to old characters that made appearances all of it added up to make this ending a perfect wrap up to an amazing series. It’s bittersweet for me. I hate to see it end. But I’m so happy with the way she bundled up what everyone’s future looks like. From the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, no matter where life takes them or how many miles might be between them. One thing will remain true now and forever and that’s Crew First, Always Crew! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- I am such a fan of Tijan. I know if she comes out with a new book, I’m going to devour it! This was no exception. It was hot, full of suspense. Lies, secrets revealed the banter was sarcastic and funny. The flow was perfect and it had me on the edge of my seat from the beginning to the end. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Cross and Bren were hella hot! There was plenty of scorching hot scenes. I loved it!! There was plenty of love in them but it was like makin’ “dirty dirty love” HOLY MOLY!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪HEA!! Oh my heart y’all!  

I love this ending so much!

Looking To Score Release Blitz & Review

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Looking to Score by CoraLee June and Carrie Gray is LIVE and FREE with KU!

Looking to Score is like the book equivalent of comfort food- goes down easy and leaves you feeling full and content. This book is funny, charming, heart-warming, insanely clever, and JUST what we need. I simply LOVED it and could not put it down.” ~The Romantic Rush Blog

He’s like literally the worst.

Oakley Davis is the star running back at our University, and the reason I’ve broken my vow to avoid the college party scene. Thanks to a mixup with my advisor, I’m now serving my Public Relations internship as a glorified babysitter to the party-hard football players.

Specifically, Oakley.

He’s impossible to manage. His Instagram is full of half-naked, drunk photos and he’d rather attend parties than practice. His brand needs some serious work, and when he’s not driving me insane, he’s sleeping his way through the entire female population.

But I’m determined. I have plans to graduate a semester early and nothing or no one will get in my way. I’m a Virgo, after all. Oakley Davis might be a privileged, cocky, football star, but I’m Amanda Matthews; and I’ll do whatever it takes to get my A.

I have to make sure I don’t end up falling in love with the idiot, first.

Start reading today!

MY REVIEW

You see me rolling… on the floor, like laughing out loud! This friggin book is funny y’all! Oakley and Amanda’s story was sweet and sassy and sarcastic and quick witted. This was such a fun book to devour, because I didn’t just read it, I straight up devoured it. As fast as possible. Right now in this crazy messed up chaos that’s life, THIS book was exactly what I needed. I was the perfect little time out. The Calgon “take me away bath” in the form of a book! 

Amanda Matthews has relocated to the University of Texas to escape a past she’s not proud of and she just wants to put behind her. She’s determined to take an internship opportunity to help put her on the fast track to graduating early. She’s feisty and goal oriented, the only thing she has to do, clean up Oakley Davis’s image. But OMG!! What a flipping nightmare. He’s all over social media, and dang is he ever a hot mess express, emphasis on the HOT!! When Oakley starts flirting and she’s around him all the time, will she be able to resist his delicious body and that annoying yet adorable charm that drops panties all across campus? Will this be the new start Amanda was hoping it would be, or will parts of her find history repeating itself? 

Oakley Davis is everything. No heart nor pair of panties is safe on campus. He is gorgeous, talented, and funny. But there is so much more to him than that. His character  cracks me up so much. When he is forced to spend time with Amanda he really makes it annoyingly hilarious at first to try to get under her skin.

I love books where the big man on campus is brought to his knees by our heroine. I think we get that here and it’s so sweet and endearing. I never found his character to be the d-baggey popular guy. He did get around a lot and he was unapologetic in his behaviors but he was just so adorable, it was easy to forgive him. Lol

I don’t know how that happened. I guess because he wasn’t a mean character and he had reasons for being the way he was and they were quite heartbreaking as well. I loved these two together, they both had stuff to overcome and they were able to do that and heal together. It was perfect! 😍🙌🏻😍 I love CoraLee and I am Super excited by newcomer Carrie and can’t wait to see what she has in store for us in the future. 

Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- This book is freaking adorable! Secrets , angst, hella hot and sexy times, so much heart, banter, tears, forgiveness, overcoming past mistakes, just enough frustration. Y’all the banter, the creative names for the genitalia. Talk about HILARIOUS. Our His sexy and our h is sassy af. These characters are FANTABULOUS! GAH! They are LIFE!!

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Holy hawt biscuits and gravy! Ladies Oakley is hot enough to make you want to slap your granny! LOVE IT!!

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.

Whiskey

A stand-alone romance novel in the Brewed series

I’m the Dixon who left.

Through the good, bad, and worst imaginable, I stayed gone.

When I return home after a decade, I’m not surprised by the cold reception from my family . . . or my brother’s best friend.

Emberly Olsen.

I spent my childhood tormenting her.

Now these days with her feel like the cruelest sort of unintended revenge.

We’ve changed.

She’s changed.

Pure confidence and sensuality, but her pouty lips and heavy-lidded eyes scream contempt. And word around town? She’s untouchable.

But after sharing a few drinks, her snide comments turn teasing.

Sneers become smiles.

Huffs change to laughs.

Laughs to moans, sweeter than any sound.

Years of animosity ignite into carnal need and passion.

We can blame it on the whiskey.

I have a feeling we’ll try.

But we aren’t that drunk.

My Review

So I’m not gonna lie, Molly McAdams is one of those authors that has the ability to slice and dice my emotions with her amazingly poignant and heart wrenching books. My heart doesn’t stand a chance against her and her magical word wizardry. Pieces y’all, I fall to pieces. Then she comes in like a ninja surgeon and puts me back together again. Every.Single.Dang.Time. 

Cayson Dixon, I mean could we possibly have a more sexy name for our hero?!? That’s a rhetorical question BTW. Because, ladies, HOLY HELL! Everything about this broody, broken man is sexy. He makes my heart melt, he makes my heart flutter, my heart breaks for him. He basically OWNS my heart. Yup, I’m claiming this misunderstood man.

He’s so much more than what people realize and I can wait for you all to read this book and fall in love with the complexity of this character. To understand the years of secrets and lies buried deep that made him the man he became.The man that’s so much more than the reputation that follows him back home after nine years away working.

Emberly Olsen knew Cayson most of her life leading up through her teenage years. He was her best friend Sawyers older brother and was also her biggest crust turned tormentor. The emotional scars she wears even as an adult from his relentless teasing come boiling to the surface when Cayson shows back up in town after nine years away wanting to make amends oh…and he also wants her. 

She is one of the only people who know a little bits and pieces about why he may have left town in the first place, but just like him she’s stayed silent for all these years. How will she continue to resist giving her heart the one man who she has always wanted more than anything but now that he’s in front of her she can’t help but remember all that he’s done?

What I loved about this book was that this book had it all. This book was LIFE! It had heat, passion and banter for days. It had super sexy tension, angst,  frustration and family issues galore. Holy cow I wanted to chuck my kindle across the room. MORE THAN ONCE! 

I love that this book is about forgiveness and healing. It’s about finding support to help you overcome a tragedy from your past and about owning your crap and taking responsibility for the hurts you caused. But most of all it’s about the beauty of inevitable love. Because Love can conquer almost anything. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- I love Molly McAdams. Her writing is always emotionally gripping and riveting. I know that with any book of hers I read I am going to get hit all up in my feelings. She never fails to deliver such well rounded works of literary art that I know I’m gonna get something that’s full of witty banter, heat, emotions and everything I could possibly want and more. Her books never fail to stay with me long after I finish the last page. I have some (that shall remain nameless) I’m still feeling years later. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥-There is nothing hotter than two people that try like hell to resist each other, then finally give in. Except maybe a big ol pan of biscuits and gravy, Nope Cayson and Emberly are hotter than biscuits and gravy! So this southern girl is saying that’s really Freakin hawt!! 🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! This was super emotional, I cried so many times because I loved these characters and felt right along with them, but I am so happy with how this ended and I am so excited with the set up we get for the next  brothers book! #HappyEnding!😍

About the Author

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur babies. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach . . . which roughly translates to being a homebody and dishing out movie quotes with her hubby. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and loves curling up in a fluffy blanket during a thunderstorm . . . or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

Blurb: She was never supposed to walk into my club. But she did. I shouldn’t have looked twice at her. But I did. The criminal underworld is no place for a girl like her.

When she goes into hiding, it’s my duty to hunt her down. I have a job to do, and she needs to disappear for good. But four years later, Kat isn’t alone anymore. And the little boy right beside her looks just like me. Mine is book one of The Ties That Bind, an all-new dark mafia romance from A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight.

My Review

WOW, my friends! I did a super squeal of excitement when this hit my kindle. I knew from the blurb and the fact that it was written by an amazingly talented duo like A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight, that we were in for greatness. I was not disappointed. This book is dark, raw, sinister and gritty. It will grab you from the very beginning with this phenomenal combination of unbelievably hot tension and edge of your seat suspense. Get ready to be simultaneously fanning yourself and frustrated. 

Levka Antonov was both her Prince Charming and her Villian. He was gorgeous and god like with his power. He was as delicious as he was dangerous. He was feared! When he wanted something he got it, and he decided that he wanted Katerina to be his “Katya.” They hit it off and it was everything more than even he could have predicted! He knew she was hiding things but he had ways of getting to the bottom of it and he would find out exactly who and what she was hiding.

When something in his business goes down and Katerina disappears, Lev is both concerned and angry at her for disappearing. There are a lot of speculations and distrust surrounding her from his Family business associates, will he abide by the orders he’s given when her location is discovered after a few years? However, will an unexpected secret game changing curveball Katerina has been carting with her for three years, throw a monkey wrench in all of Lev’s plans? Just how exactly will Lev punish her?

“I’m taking back what’s Mine”

Katerina Blake was a beautiful broken and poor young woman,  but she’s hiding a troubled and scarred past beneath first glance. One no one could even imagine. She was such a strong and resilient character. I loved her so much. My heart broke for the little girl she’d been and what she endured as a child, but it fist pumped at the strong kick ass woman she’d become. Now, when she met Lev, it was a collision of hotness y’all. Good god!

Their chemistry was overwhelming. She was strong but he brought out a submissive side to her that she didn’t know existed, holy hell! 🔥 She would do anything he said. She fell hard and fast, understandably so. But when a devastating tragic event happens and he is to blame on the same day she finds out life changing news. She must do what she needs to protect more than just herself.

She could have cowered but she didn’t. She did what she had to. She is the kind of character I FLOVE, my friends! She goes through all the emotions and through such growth as a character and it makes for such an amazing read. You get to see her at her lowest then go to seeing her in her most protective and survival mode. She.is.just.fantastic! 🙌🏻😍🙌🏻

WITHOUT YOU Release Blitz & Review

Title: Without You
Author: Marley Valentine
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2020 Cover Design: PopKitty Design Photographer: Wander Aguiar Models: Jacob Cooley & Luke Schaeffer
“Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.”
Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.
Until everything changed. 
Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be. 
Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed. 
Not on another person.
Not on another man.
Not until him.

My Review

Oh Y’all!! So, I was super excited for this book. I was thinking GAH I mean you can read the blurb and it pretty much sounds like this book is gonna be all kinds of forbidden goodness right? But my friends,  this book, this fantastic, beautifully epic book, was beyond any and all expectations I could have ever even imagined. The feelings and emotional journey Marley will send  you on with this book is soul-stirring and powerful. The way this book will grab your heart on the first page, AHH😭 I’m just never going to be the same. 

Broken-hearted, defeated and devastated. Deacon and Julian have a story that will both decimate and then heal your heart and soul. This is a poignantly powerful story about the love and healing they found in each other. It was about two broken souls recognizing their perfect counterparts in the most unlikely of places, at the most inopportune time. The kind of inevitable love that even though it went against logic and reason, what should and shouldn’t have drawn them to one another bond them in ways neither could have ever expected.

There was something cathartic when they were together, it was as if all was right in the world, it’s why they had to be meant for each other. They way they could tap into what the other so desperately needed at that moment and to be just that. 

I’m a firm believer that there is something to be said about the after effects of what happens to you after a book absolutely, utterly wrecks you. That cleansing feeling that only comes after you have bawled and sobbed until your huffing and snotty( not pretty but it happens) But when all is said and done and your author has broken you into a million pieces, you have cried all the tears until you have none left to cry, and she’s put you back together, you sigh and know that everything is as it’s supposed to be. She did it! She broke you, and she put you back together. Now, you do know you won’t be 100 percent the same, because long after these characters will stick with you, because that’s what those types of books do.THIS is one of those books, Deacon and Julian will be here in my heart long after I finished this book. Their story is the ultimate story of where love triumphs all, love wins. Love is EVERYTHING! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐-  I urge you to please take a chance on this book. If you never tried a MM or if MM isn’t your usual genre give this a go. Marley Valentine is a master and you will find yourself so caught up in this amazing love story you won’t care or it won’t matter whether it’s MM or MF it’s just a tragically beautiful love story. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-It is hot!! 🔥 There is so much temptation and at first the try to fight it between them, that it can’t help but to be off the charts hot?!?! Yup, so so  HOTT!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA 😍♥️😍

Marley Valentine comes from the future. Living in Sydney, Australia with her family. When she’s not busy writing her own stories, she spends most of her time immersed in the words of her favourite authors.

Blurb:
There’s a rule in Crowne Hall: never look a Crowne in the eyes.
It protects us more than them.

I broke it once, the night Grayson Crowne mistook me for his true love and stole my first kiss. I’ve regretted it every day since.

He hates me.
He torments me.

He won’t let me go, because that night he whispered a secret against my lips not meant for me. Grayson Crowne, heir to the Crowne empire and notorious playboy prince is… a virgin.

I signed a contract in my heart’s blood as much as ink: help him get back his love, repair what I broke. Give him my body, my soul, my heart, let him use all of me, so when the time comes to marry her, he won’t need me.

I shouldn’t need him.
But he’s my stolen soulmate, and I’m at his mercy.

 

 

About the Author:
I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Excerpt I jumped, shutting my computer, and glanced up at Graham paused at the threshold to my room, loosening his red tie. He always looked handsome in a suit and that red tie I gave him for his birthday. I didn’t expect to see him. My assistant said he was at the Governor’s Mansion. I rarely stayed there, but he used it as an occasional “getaway.” Probably from me. So when she told me he was there, I made the assumption (actually hoped) he’d decided to stay the night and get some work done.“It’s not even seven.” I tucked my bare feet beneath me, still wearing my navy skirt suit and silk scarf—my long hair in loose curls down my back and around my shoulders just like Graham liked it. He took calculated steps toward me, completely untying his tie, letting it drop to the floor before working the buttons to his starchy white shirt. I tried to forget my internet search, not that it mattered because I couldn’t hide anything from my husband. He elicited a warring of emotions from me. An icy tingle slithered along my spine, making every muscle rigid, while the warmth in my heart fed on the way my pulse reacted to his proximity, the way it always had done. That never changed. It was how I knew we weren’t broken. “Did you miss me?” He smirked, shrugging off his shirt, revealing his defined torso—abs for days beneath a thin smattering of dark hair on his chest. I was the envy of so many women. Every day I reminded myself of that. “Nice scarf.” He knelt in front of the chair. I returned a nervous smile, hoping the man before me was the man I loved. Graham untied the scarf, sliding it from my neck as slowly as he’d slid off his tie just seconds earlier. The scarf floated to the floor. Gentle fingers swept my hair off my shoulders, exposing my neck. With the same feather’s touch, he traced the bruises. “It’s nothing …” His lips replaced his fingers, kissing my neck. “You’re fine. Right?” I wanted to believe him. Could denial become truth if we just believed hard enough? “I’m fine,” I murmured, closing my eyes. “Want me to show you how much I missed you?” he whispered next to my ear.Was he asking me for permission? Governor Graham demanded me. Pre-marriage, pre-Governor Graham asked … begged me to surrender to him

My Review

OH-M-FREAKIN-G!! I didn’t think anything could rival the Transcend Duet in my eyes(my love knew no bounds with Griff and Swayze )However, I really believe Jewel has done it. What a tragically tangled web she weaved with this duet. Oh my dear book friends,  I don’t think there is enough yoga or meditation I could have done in this world to give my mind preparation for the epic mindfucking it was in for. 

This book was the best of everything(book and movie genres) all at once. It was a suspense, a paranormal, the best kind of love story, a story of the strongest bonds of friendship. It was creepy and disturbingly awesome. It was the kind of book where you can be rooting for your characters at the same time you want to clobber them for being blind to what’s in front of them. This is one of those fantastic books where you literally suck in breath in outrage and your hubby or kid looks at you from across the room and goes “what the hell was that? You sounded like you were choking.”  

The truth could right the wrong of a lie, but nothing fixed the truth. His love was ugly and so was his truth.

There wasn’t a dull moment in this book, from chapter to chapter I was on the edge of my seat wondering was was around the corner for Ronin, Evie, Lila and Graham. The lies, the secrets, the manipulation. Holy shit the way everything was coming together was terrifying yet awesome. I legit couldn’t put this book down. I didn’t just read it, I savored it at the same time I devoured it. When I did have to stop to “adult” I swear I was like jonesing to get back to it. Lol 

Y’all, I am in awe at the brilliance of Jewels mind.  This is a book that is told in multiple people’s POV(all four main characters) and it never gets jumbled or confusing, the different details that spanned years in this book were so on point. I swear I went through every emotion I had while reading this book. Love, lust, happy, sad, fear, disgust, despair, utter devastation, frustration, depression, elation and I can promise you I will read this duet again. IT WAS THAT GOOD!! 

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I’m officially Dead!! This particular Jewel Ann diet has emotionally slaughtered me! Going in I just was so unsure what the outcome would be so I was terrified. If you have read her books you know she ain’t scared to gut a bitch!! Lol I’m so glad I hung in there. This book was worth every tear and raised moment of BP and heart palpitations. And all the people said AMEN!🙏🏻

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Ronin and Evie we’re still hot but there was a lot of stress and struggle for them in this book. When they got on it though. Hot as ever! 🔥🧨🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- This book doesn’t end on a cliffy. Yay! Now is it a HEA for all. NO! Do I think you all will be happy ever after with the ending, Yes. You will understand this more after you read it. Sorry not sorry,  but spoilers suck!!
