Fighting for Rain Release Blitz & Review

FFR - RB banner.jpg

I can’t even wrap my head around what I just read. Reading BB is like hitting the refresh button and getting a shot of adrenaline. I swear she’s creating her own genre.” -Kate Stewart, USA Today Bestselling Author

Fighting for Rain, the unforgettable second installment in The Rain Trilogy from BB Easton is available now!

Fighting for Rain final ebook.jpg

The world was supposed to end on April 23, but Rainbow Williams’s world ended days before that.

The mass hysteria caused by the impending apocalypse claimed everything she’d ever loved. Her family. Her city. Her will to live.

Until she met him.

Wes Parker didn’t have anything left for the apocalypse to take…he’d already lost it all by the time he was nine-years-old. His family. His home. His hope of ever being loved.

Until he met her.

Brought together by fate and bound by a love that would last lifetimes, Rain and Wes were prepared to die together on April 23.

They were not prepared for what would happen on April 24

My Review

Holy Apocalypse that wasn’t an actual Apocalypse!! I am so glad this trilogy is not over yet. Although, I’m not so sure that I will EVER be ready to let Wes and Rain go! I have become so obsessed with what happens to them. I devoured this book, hung on every single syllable, until that ENDING knocked me off at the knees. Not gonna lie, I’m a little terrified. No,Y’all! I’m A LOT terrified. I Can’t Even think about what this could mean. 

BB Easton, what are you planning to do to my heart?  

“I knew from the moment I first laid eyes on Rainbow Williams that I would end up dying for her.”

 I don’t think I have ever been so glad an author is releasing the second and third books so close together. Two week is practically back-to-back when you are as in love with the characters and storyline, as I am. 

Oh a really awesome thing about this book is that it gave you just enough nuggets of backstory info that it immediately jogs your memories to all the monumental stuff that happened in Praying for Rain. You can totally jump and be swept right back into Franklin Springs and what’s left of its surrounding towns.   

Good gravy at the character transformation in this book. I am so utterly in love with Wes and Rain’s characters. GAH I love how he looked at her, how he touches and cares for her. Oh.My.Gawd!  SO HAWTTTTT! The way he become EVERYTHING to her. He taught her important lessons in survival. He had saved her so many times when she almost died. She knew as long as she was with him he would take care of her and everything would be okay. She looked at him like he was her protector, her saviour and her lover and future all in one perfect package.  

“I would follow this man to the ends of the earth, which , from the looks of it, might be right here at Pitchard Park Mall.”

 Wes shows us more of a vulnerable and less confident side to him than what would have expected. I think that when he and Rain are faced with things from their past, especially hers, he just  acts impulsively as a defense mechanism to protect himself. Unfortunately, that will cause him to make some choices that are heartbreaking. 

Rain becomes stronger like Wes taught her to be and she channels everything into being a caretaker. Even though she’s rocking some pretty savage PTSD she’s still managing to kick tail and take names and not just take everything that gets thrown at her. I hated what she had to go through and the circumstances surrounding it, but she is so much stronger for it. I get the feeling going forward she is sure going to need it. 

There is a big chunk of the book where you are saddened by the turn of events, but I understood it and hoped it would change going forward. When hit with a gut-wrenching reality of what the new future looks like, Wes realizes that no matter what he will always protect his girl. 

“This woman found me broken and made me whole, and I’m suddenly determined to do the same for her.”

 As soon as you think you have figured out WTF is happening and your heart is safe…B.B. Easton will deliver a gut punch so hard it will knock you straight on your flippin fanny! Because that ENDING!! Are Y’all ready?!?! This MUST be you next read. IT’S that freakin’ PHENOMENAL!! If you haven’t read book one, start this TODAY!!!

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️- Obsessed with Rain and Wes. I was shocked by the twists and turns that came out about the “April 23” plan. This book was way more that in could have even predicted and I honestly had super high expectations going in. BB Easton blew them away and then some.  That ending though… that ending left my eyes filled with tears, my heart overrun with fear, hope, awe, and excitement and anticipation for the conclusion, Dying for Rain.

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY HOT DANG! No matter what Wes and Rain are super explosive. They are fire and sparks and sometimes a sweet in a dirty way,  just everything amazingly yummy I want in love scenes. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- Mega stop your heart and crush it cliffy!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

EXCERPT

“Harry Potter geek?” She nods. “Dad and I used to read the books when I was young. It’s our thing, you know? We share our love for mythical creatures and magical worlds.” She smiles widely. “When I was at my mother’s, I used to read the books by myself and wished I was at Dad’s instead.” “So now you get to wear a unicorn necklace and look like a fairy?” Suddenly, I see darkness pushing her bright face. She grabs the handle and starts closing the door. “Thank you again for everything.” “I’m supposed to stay with you and binge watch a series or just watch a rom-com,” I say, showing her my arm where I scribbled my notes. Her expression smooths, and her lips slip into a charming grin. Her mouth is framed by a pair of inviting dimples that enchant me. “So tell me about this first day,” I ask. “We could share some of the chocolate chip cookies I got you.” She steps aside, inviting me in. “First experiences suck most of the time.” “First kisses never suck,” I tell her. “Of course they do,” she protests with conviction. I brush a strand of her hair, leaning forward. “There’s always that little moment of hesitation. When everything is almost happening. Like, right when you’re about to touch her lips,” I say, my lips are so close to hers. “You wait though.” “What do you wait for?” she asks with sweetness and innocence. “For her to step back or lean into the kiss.” “What if she doesn’t move?” “That’s my favorite,” I answer before I brush her soft lips with mine. She gasps as I dip my mouth to hers. This is pretty much like going down the slope at high speed. I can’t stop, I can’t hesitate. One wrong move and it’s a bust. I have to control every movement, lead her. Lean where I want us to go. I slide my tongue across her lips, and she opens them while she wraps her arms around my neck. I don’t rush it though. If this is the only kiss I get from Hannah, I want it to be perfect. My heart hammers as our kiss leads to more than just demonstrating to her that a first can be extraordinary. The small whimper she makes as I slide my hand around her waist and pull her into me gets me worked up. I hold nothing back, and she doesn’t either. I move my lips to her jawline, nibbling her soft skin all the way to her earlobe. She tastes sweet. Like lavender, vanilla, and honey. I could eat her. Nibble every inch of her skin, drink her all. As she pushes her hips up against me, trying to get closer, my eyes open. Our gazes connect. I want to consume her. All of her. The pain from climbing the tree is gone, replaced by desire—a hunger I’ve never come across before. I run a hand through the back of her neck, my fingers curl around her skull, gripping her head tightly. “Waiting?” she asks between shallow breaths. I nod. “You’re in charge, do you want me to continue?” She rises on her tiptoes, leaning closer. This time, I devour her. Our tongues tangle and fuck if the fire isn’t consuming us. Lust and adrenaline rush through my veins. I run a hand up and down her round, tight ass. My length is turning into a piece of steel. Throbbing, needy steel that wants to slide inside her. A sexy moan escapes her lips as I move between her thighs and push her against the door. Her legs wrap around my hips, and anything besides fucking her is off the table. There’s no restraint. For her, or for myself. I break the kiss, gasping for some air. “Are you sure about this?” “I have this theory,” she says. “Being with a guy for the first time being awkward and meh. Do you want to prove me wrong?” “Challenge accepted.” AUTHOR BIO Claudia is an award-winning, USA Today bestselling author. She lives in Colorado, working for a small IT. She has three children and manages a chaotic household of two confused dogs, and a wonderful husband who shares her love of all things geek. To survive she works continually to find purpose for the voices flitting through her head, plus she consumes high quantities of chocolate to keep the last threads of sanity intact.

My Review

The Spearman family is literally one of my absolute favorite book families of all time. I love them BIG y’all!! I can’t possibly get enough of their journeys to falling in love. I wanna be a Spearman. LOL

I can assure you going into this book that it will take your feelings on a tilt-a-whirl type ride.  It will also have you fanning yourself something fierce because Alex and Hannah are hella hot! 🔥 This book is classified as a frenemies-to-lovers story, but it’s so much more. You could call it a brothers best friend, it’s also about a former rock star with a troubled past, and a sports romance. In some ways it’s a slow burn too,  but also a one-night stand to romance. Really this is a one stop shop for romance fans. It has the best banter for days, super sexy scenes(like really freakin hot 🥵 ) and it’s raw and realistic and believable in the ways in which they respond to all the messes life throws at them. Things that you couldn’t have predicted. This storyline will make you laugh out loud and then cry for these characters you’ve fallen so hard for. 

Trust me you will find yourself captivated by Alex Spearman and his attractively alpha tendencies and simultaneous sweetness. His love for his family and “the children.” GAH!! The way this man is with his nieces and nephews, that is the stuff fairytale dreams are built on. His ability to put his playboy ways behind him for Hannah when she’s skittish and needs a gentler touch is heartwarming and precious. Or even letting those he loves think the worst of him, just to protect her. It left me feeling as warm and gooey as a snickerdoodle cookie! 🍪 

Hannah Hades-Bell is an amazing character. She had been through so much. She’s had some really traumatic things happen to her in the past and she hasn’t always handled it in the best ways. From the first moment she met Alex their chemistry was off the charts. However after the first hookup they rubbed each other the wrong way with unfortunate words. If they weren’t actively rubbing each other the right way,  they were fighting. Over the course of a couple of years they had this hate you but I can’t keep my hands off you thing going on.

When yet another devastating blow hits Hannah and she goes on a journey of self healing and self discovery around the world, Alex steps in back at home to help with a couple of things and they use some “ old fashioned” and “ hidden text within” means of communication to keep in touch during this time. It brings an in-depth and totally refreshing new way of them getting to know each other in new ways. It was so beautiful and intimate and just touching. I loved this so much!

Hannah has so many cool things going for her, but she was being dragged down by her past. I wished for so much of the book she could see herself as Alex saw her. But then again that’s what made her story so great. We get to read her journey about her growth and discovering what she had in front of her all along. 

I love all these characters. Some we had seen before and some new ones. We learned so many new things about Hannah and Alex. Even though we had seen parts of them in previous books, I fell so much more in love with them than I could have ever imagined I would have. Hannah’s boys…I really love that we will obviously been seeing more of the Sinners of Seattle now! I can hardly wait to get those guys stories. Hopefully we will see plenty more of Alex and Hannah in their books as well.

I’m obsessed with Claudia Burgoa’s books. She has this ability to grab you on page one and never let you go until the last word. This book was no different. I.Hung.On.Every.Word!! The level of transformation in these characters was astronomical here. The people they were the day they met and the people they were on the last page of the book were so different. But their journey was phenomenal and I definitely recommend reading this fantastic story! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️-This book is full of anything and everything you could possibly want and more. I love  these characters so much. I love my Sassy Hannah and I’ve been a fan of the entire Spearman klan for a while. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY HOT BEANS AND FRANKS!! Alex and Hannah were explosive whenever they were near each other. Even when they were “avoiding” contact they were just hot. They had chemistry for days!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! It wasn’t without hard work and ups and downs to get it. But… #PerfectHappyEnding

Warrior Blue Review & Release Blitz

📗BLURB📗

Blake Carson can’t afford to have a life. Between working full-time as a tattoo artist and caring for his disabled twin brother Jacob, his plate is more than full – and he prefers it that way.

But his meticulous planning is turned on its head when he meets the upbeat and beautiful Audrey Wright and her butterfly tattoo.

Now, through a complicated maze of coincidence and fate, Blake begins to question if maybe there could be more to his life than just work and Jacob.

That is, if the guilt doesn’t eat him alive first.

With the help of Dr. Vanessa Travetti and a girl he doesn’t think he deserves, can Blake convince himself that even the bad guy deserves a happy ending?

My Review

Oh Guys. I can’t even!😍😭 It’s almost indescribable the emotions this book brought out in me. It was completely unexpected. I love Kelsey Kingsley’s writing, but I will be honest and say for me I have so much more love and feelings about this book than I could ever even begun to have predicted. Blake and Audrey’s story is one that will stick with me in the back of my mind and heart  for weeks and months maybe even years to come. 

Blake Carson has to be one of my most favorite book boyfriends ever. He is damaged and broken in ways I couldn’t possibly fathom. His life revolves around his amazing yet disabled twin brother, Jacob “Jake” and his job as a talented tattoo artist, with a talent so far out of the realm of what he realizes. He’s amazing really, but Blake is a walking bag of culpability and self loathing. He blames himself for something that happened as a child and for that feels he is undeserving of any of the good things life has to offer. The only bright spot in his life is Jake. Jake is a bright spot and a responsibility, Jake is his life and his future and he bases everything and ever decision on the impact it will have on Jake. 

I’m in love with Blake, his character, the love he has for his brother literally melted my heart into a puddle of goo over and over again. The way he handled him. GAAHHH!! Words almost fail me here. I want to be able to describe the transformation Blake’s character had over the course of this book without giving anything away but it would be impossible and also a disservice to the readers experience of getting it like I did, which was to go in not knowing what you are in for. The way Blake and Audrey couldn’t be more different was almost comical but this amazing woman brought this man everything he didn’t know he needed. 

Audrey… y’all this woman. Her story was devastatingly heartbreaking , yet full of hope and faith and fate. It was everything. This woman in her pastel and preppy clothes with her all black wearin’ tattooed alpha-hole. I couldn’t get enough. The way she was with Blake’s brother, Jake. Oh My Heart!! 😭♥️ She gave him glimpses of everything he didn’t know he was missing or even dreamed of and she gave him the strength to go for it. She helped him to examine things he’d been denying for many years. He just needed her. They were meant to be, long before they ever even met. 

This book had so many subtle fate, kismet, god, faith spiritual and I guess you could call it something or someone that’s no longer with us trying to tell you something, moments in it. It gave you this mysteriously magical feeling the whole time you read it. I didn’t know what was going to happen next, but I had feelings.No always good, but that was part of the emotional experience that was this book. This was not a short book by any means, but I literally devoured this book in less than twenty-four hours. I ignored all adulting and couldn’t do anything else. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I was addicted to Blake and Audrey and their journey. I was captivated every second. I cried until I felt like I had no tears left. I smiled until my face hurt, and my oldest daughter noticed and asked “ WTH is wrong with you? You’re smiling kinda creepy over there at nothing. Lol 😂 (I had to tell her I was reading and It was amazing) It left me warm and gooey and also terrified and irate at some moments. This is a book that will hit every emotion you have and not always with a gentle had. So yeah, Kelsey is gonna serve you up and emotion beat down. Then in the end she will give you a little hug, fix it all better and send you on your merry way. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️-I just had to throw in a sixth star because this has already become one of my favorite reads of 2020. This book is full of drama, angst, forgiveness, faith and transformation. Holy cow it’s just so many things all in one. I loved these characters so much more that I can put into words. This book had it all . 

🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY HOT BISCUITS AND GRAVY !! Blake is just dirty and delicious AF!! Kelsey doesn’t typically do too explicit of  sexy scenes in the books of hers I have read (which I happen to really like explicit) However it doesn’t even bother me the lack of explicit details. This one is almost hotter in what’s not said. The build up y’all!! 🔥🔥It’s not really a fade-to-black IMO, but it’s not super descriptive either it’s just enough if that makes sense? It tells you what went down, so don’t worry. But it all it works so well it’s just amazingly hot, because Blake and Audrey are just hot as Holy Hell! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA! This ending was pure perfection!  Just… ahh! That good y’all! 😍😍

Excerpt

“Hey, Blake,” Audrey answered, a smile in her voice.

“Hey.”

“This is the second time you’ve called me in three days.”

“You’re keeping count?”

She scoffed lightheartedly. “Duh. I mean, I might be a grown woman, but deep down, I’m still a girl who has it pretty bad for this really hot guy.”

Blurb:
Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult novel from bestselling author, Ella Fields.

 

 

 

 

My Review

img_4744

Whenever Ella Fields releases a new book I feel like I have to stop the world, shut out everyone and do nothing but devote myself to the magic that is her words until I have devoured every morsel. This book, this amazingly angsty Step-brother/Forbidden/Second Chance Romance was no exception to that rule. It was emotionally wrecking and beautiful at the same time. It broke me before it put me back together again.

IMG_6515

Jackson and Willa were the ultimate experience of inevitable love. Everything about their journey will leave you breathless, in tears, and rooting for them to overcome all the obstacles before them. To ignore everything and everyone that could possibly stand in their way. Jackson the broody, beautiful boy that Willa isn’t supposed to love like that, but she does. Willa so sweet and gorgeous and Jackson isn’t supposed to touch her, but that didn’t stop him.

IMG_6513

“I feel like I need you to breathe properly.”

IMG_6514

When they’re discovered it brings a world of hurt down on them and the love they share is scandalized and made out to be wrong and vile and they are punished for it. When choices are made to protect one another it causes misunderstandings and starts a domino effect that spans years and miles between them. Can Jackson and Willa right their wrongs and find each other again or have they done irreparable damage to each other’s hearts?

IMG_6512

“In the battle of who hurt who the most, you fucking won, Willa.”

IMG_6510

Y’all this is a much read for fans of edge of your seat forbidden romance fans. That fear for your couple of if and when they will be found out. The heartbreaking moments when they hurt each other unknowingly. GAH!! This book and it’s frustrating “ I’m about to chuck this kindle at the wall” moments. The sensationally sexy moments between this couple that are so forbidden yet sweet, loving and delicious all at the same time. If you haven’t read Ella Fields yet you definitely want to start today. She never fails to hit you straight through the heart plowing through your poor feelings leaving you a devastated and broken mess before she perfectly pieces you back together in the end. You can count on a book hangover for days after one of her books.

Siren Release Blitz and Review

Title: Siren
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Hazel Grace
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: January 7, 2020
I’m one of the most alluring creatures in the world.
Dangerous.
Beautiful.
Powerful.
A siren.
One of seven princesses of Lacuna.
But I wanted more than that, so much more than the trinkets I stowed in my caverns. I wanted my own piece of the world.
And I got it.
However with that wish came a price, and that price came with secrets.
Two of which should never have been able to set foot on where I reside.
The fate of my heart belongs to Lacuna, but whose heart belongs to me?

My Review 

GAH!! Holy Freakin Under the Sea!! This is probably my absolute FAVORITE if the sinister fairy tales yet!! Yes, my friends it’s that fantastic! I’m talking all the Stars 🌟 y’all!

So this is the story of Davina, daughter of King Triton, Princess of Lacuna. Davina’s story is a twisted and amazingly angsty and suspenseful take on The Little Mermaid. She’s one of seven daughters of King Triton.
When a mysterious and alluring stranger, Dagen the Blood Axe Viking shows up on her island she quickly captured him and sets out on a quest to serve up revenge and find answers as to who, what, when, where, why, and how he came to be there. The chemistry between them was off the charts hot. It was anger filled and sexually charged and it was EVERYTHING!! 🔥🔥

Dagen was waiting for his chance to escape and serve up some revenge on Davina and her sisters himself. Sent on a mission to the island by his father he began to question everything. He finds himself conflicted when he wants to own her body as much as he wants to harm it. He is brute and gorgeous and all man. I love the dirty talking, manly Viking that he is. Then we see a soft side of him at times when he’s with Davina, this protective side comes out. Good gracious it’s so freakin hot.

There are so many secondary characters in this book that add so much to this story. It literally keeps this story flowing so fast and there isn’t a moment that I wasn’t on the edge of my seat excited and couldn’t wait to see what would happen next. Then Hazel Grace completely obliterated my heart for a minute there and I was left a devastated crying mess. Thankfully she put me back together in the end. This is a must read for those who are fans of the fantasy romance genre. This is such and amazing “re-twisted-telling”! I cannot give it enough stars or recommend it enough.

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!
⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️- This book had ever single thing I’m looking forbade SO MUCH MORE THAN I COULD HAVE EVER FATHOMED!! I had to throw in a sixth star because five just ain’t gonna cut it! This book stole my breath y’all! 😱
🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-HOLY HOT HADES The Love Scenes *Fans self*
🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! After I stopped breathing and cried several times, I got my HEA I was hoping for and it was Perfect!! ♥️

Hazel Grace is an avid music lover and hardcore Oakland Raiders fan from the mitten state of Michigan. Her writing goals are “what the f*ck” storylines while enjoying her readers private messaging her to cuss her out.

My Review 

GAAHHHH!! My heart Y’all, my poor heart! It has legit been through the ringer with this book. I was dying waiting for the conclusion to this trilogy after I stopped breathing at the end of the last book. Dylan Allen and her gift with words had me sucked in, so entranced I was left devastated. I wasn’t willing to accept that this was the direction things were going for my Beth and Carter. Their journey was so emotionally insane but gripping and wonderful at the same time. It was an absolute necessity for them endure all they had to go through to become who they were by the end, and I loved them even more for that. The Carter and Beth you first meet in book one are not the Carter and Beth you leave at the end of book three. I love the kinds of stories that completely shatter me before putting me back together again. Dylan Allen is clearly a master of her craft because she did just that!!

Beth’s character probably saw the most growth of all. I love the strength she gained throughout the trilogy, but especially in book three. She’s strong and sassy and resilient. She’s become this empowering woman comfortable in her own skin, despite all the ways her upbringing tried to destroy her and it was inspiring. I wanted so badly for her to get revenge for everything bad that has ever happened to her. I wanted for her to get her guy and her HEA.

Carter, Holy flippin Hell I love this guy. Hot, so musically gifted it hurts. He this perfect blend of sweetness but dirty talking, bad boy, Alpha in the bedroom. It’s beyond seventh circle of Hades kinda hot. 🔥You just have to read it!! Even with his successes he couldn’t forget about Beth. He became what she knew he always could. She still owned his heart. He made some mistakes along the way while they were apart, but he was doing his best to right those wrongs.

The blow they had been dealt was impossible. To Carter ,Beth would always be the most beautiful woman in the world. She was everything to him, always had been, since he first saw her. The chemistry between Carter and Beth is off the charts hot,hot, hot!!
This is a must read trilogy for all the angst, heat, suspense, and twists!!

Manhattan Release Blitz & Review

Manhattan, a standalone in the Becker Brothers series, a small town, country, friends-to-lovers romance, is LIVE!

Blurb

The fire… the guitar… THE FEELS!

Everyone knows not to fall in love with your best friend.

But when your best friend is Michael Becker, it’s impossible not to.

He’s everything our town knows a Becker brother to be: devastatingly handsome, charming as a thief, and the icing on the cake — a sentimental musician who’s never without his guitar.

And he was mine. At least, that’s what I’d convinced myself.

Our bond was born in elementary school, strengthened by circumstance and the promise to always be there for each other, no matter what. And the best thing about my life was being friends with Michael Becker.

Until it was the worst.

I watched him fall in love with someone else, and helped patch him back up when she left him behind. But when he drops the bomb that he’s moving to New York, I realize it’s my last chance to tell him how I feel. And I ask him to make one more promise.

One summer. One list of adventures to remind him that our small town has more to offer than memories of the girl who left him behind.

One last chance to tell him I’m in love with him.

And I’m just dumb enough to believe that maybe he could love me, too.

You’ll love this book if you love:

➔ small town romance

country romance

➔ summer romance

➔ romantic mystery

➔ friends-to-lovers

➔ slow burn

➔ angst

My Review

I was absolutely counting the days for Mikey Becker’s story. I’m in love with them Becker boys and I couldn’t wait to read about our eighteen year old, sweet faced baby Becker boy who’s high school sweetheart, Bailey Baker, up and left to go to Nashville to become the next big country music sensation.  Leaving our precious Michael behind and heartbroken. Mikey is sensitive and sweet. He’s plays the guitar, but if you’ve read Neat you know what happens with that a little.

The whole breakup, It’s was too much and he needs to get out of this town of Stratford, so he announces he’s moving to New York at the end of the summer after his high school graduation. Leaving his family and best friend, Kylie with jaws dropped and tears in their eyes. 

Kylie Nelson has been best friends with Michael Becker since she was eight years old. Bonded by tragedy. They have been through everything together, all the awkward ups and downs of growing up. She has also been secretly longing for being more than friends for many of her teen years as well. She had to endure not only watching him meet and fall in love with Bailey Baker, but as his best friend her duty was to give advice and suggestions that required a “girls point of view.” So she sucked it up being the amazing friend she is, and helped Bailey get and then eventually hurt “her guy.” 

Kylie was beautiful, and funny and giving and loving. All these things she didn’t even realize, which made me love her character even more. She had suffered a great loss just like Mikey Becker and yet she spent her life doing things for other people. The way she cared for her dad was so sweet and even when Mikey was hard to handle and being a complete turd she was there for him and his family. Two of his brothers working at the Scooter Whiskey Distillery and one as a football coach.

Mikey’s announcement shook her as much as his family. So she decided then and there that this was her shot, that finally she would put herself out there and go after what she wanted. She was going to try to make Michael remember all the things he loved the most about home, then maybe he wouldn’t leave and she would finally have her chance to be with him. Would her plan work or will it backfire? Would Mikey ever see her for more than just a friend? 

I loved this slow burn, super sweet, friends to lovers romance. This story compared to the other Becker Boy’s books was more tame in the bedroom scenes and was more of a slow burn and the angst and tension between the main characters wasn’t so off the charts in your face as it was in On the Rocks and Neat. BUT, this was still just as much of a five star read for me. With Michael and Kylie’s age the slow burn and sweet bedroom scenes were perfect. Michael was so respectful and gentle with Kylie and it was written in a way that you could tell that he appreciated the gift he had been given and he would cherish it. GAH! It was the sweetest. Yes, they were young but they had built such a solid foundation with their friendship, it was inevitable they would end up together. READ THIS BOOK Y’ALL!

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- The Becker Boys and the girls that have captured their hearts have become an obsession for me. I one-click these books so fast. I live for the family meals around Mama Becker’s table and the banter between this rowdy bunch of country boys. They’re as down home and delicious as their Mama’s cooking, and true southern gentlemen. If you haven’t met them yet you’re missing out.  🔥🔥🔥🔥- Sweetness overload! Mikey and Kylie were Sweet Love-Makin’ Perfection! ♥️😍 🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! This ending was EVERYTHING!

Devious Lies Blog Tour & Review

Devious Lies - BT banner

“I devoured every delicious word. Absolutely unforgettable.”

—Ava Harrison, USA Today bestselling author

Devious Lies, an all-new intense, slow-burn romance from USA Today bestselling author Parker S. Huntington, is available now!

Devious Lies Cover

“She could enjoy her pretty, perfect world a little longer. Soon enough, everything she owned would be mine.”

Blurb

I had a plan to escape the friend zone.

Step one: sneak into Reed’s room.

Step two: sleep with him.

But when the lights turned on, it wasn’t familiar blue eyes I saw.

These were dark, angry, and full of demons.

And they belonged to Reed’s much older brother.

Four years later, Nash Prescott is no longer the help’s angry son.

I’m no longer the town’s prized princess.

At twenty-two, I’m broke, in need of a job.

At thirty-two, he’s a billionaire, in need of revenge.

Who cares if my family ruined his?

Who cares if he looks at me with pure loathing?

Who cares if every task he assigns me is designed to torture?

I need the money.

Simple as that.

I’ll suffer his cruelty in silence, knowing there’s one thing he wants more than revenge…

My Review

Okay…my friends,  it must be said. You absolutely, positively MUST read this book. Yeah, cause it’s that dang good. This book covers so many genres at one time. So you’ve got Bully romance, Best friends brother, Office romance and age-gap romance. All my favorites all in one fabulous book!  If you read The anti-fling in the Spring Fling anthology, you are already somewhat familiar with Emery Winthrop and Nash Prescott. I was craving more of them, so I was super excited when I saw Devious Lies was coming. Plus I happen to be a super huge Parker S. Huntington fan as well, so this is a win all around. Finding out I was getting to ARC read this Baby was the best day EVER!!!

Emery is the rich girl, the carbon copy of her mom down to her dyed hair. She’s FF’s with the help’s son, whom she also happens to be in love with. One night Em makes a huge mistake and beds the wrong brother, she totally thought it was finally her chance with her long time BFF. Shorty after that event her entire world crumbles. A scandal has ripped apart her small town, leaving families destroyed and financial ruin and devastation in its wake.

Fast forward several years later and this beautiful woman is nothing like the rich, pampered princess, she once was. Living a life most would compare to poverty level, for reasons she keeps hidden. She accepts help from her best friend through a job hook up. She is desperate and that means taking a job working for Nash Prescott, the older brother she slept with, the man whose family lost everything due to the actions of her father. The man who despises her. Would he even allow her to work for him? What will his response be when he sees just how far the mighty have fallen? 

“She could enjoy her pretty, perfect world a little longer. Soon enough, everything she owned would be mine.”

I love Emery, her character is so strong willed, and stubborn. She’s amazing, self-sacrificing, even to a fault. She’s so caring and humble. She just wanted to wright wrongs that she didn’t even commit. I was amazed by her. I’m just in love with her, and  my heart breaks for her. At any time she could have changed her situation by giving into her mother’s demands, but she was too strong for that. I love that she wasn’t backing down from her, from Nash or anybody else. 

Now, Nash. He made something of himself. He went from nothing to everything. He knew deeply some of the ways in which he accomplished that weren’t right but he just didn’t care, or maybe he did, but with his IDGAF attitude you’d never know it if he did.

He tried to tell himself he didn’t feel guilty but that just wasn’t true either. As far as a boss go he was a straight shooter and was gonna tell you what he thought and could care less what you thought, he had no filter and couldn’t give a shit about your feelings. However he was so good to people in the community, he gave back to those less fortunate.

He really was the nicest most generous dickhead around. When Emery shows up working for him, he sees his opportunity to get revenge and information at the same time. This gorgeous cruel boss tries to instantly cut her down and put her in her place. But will she bring him to his knees as well? Has the great Nash Prescott met his match? How well will Nash handle his orders not be followed? She’s really the perfect person to verbally spar with him. My own undergarments melted from the beginning tension between these two. GAH!!

I literally couldn’t put this book down. It had suspense and mystery, the most delicious tension. Characters you love and some you want to hate and have to  root for and love again and I just had to know what was going to happen. There was not a boring moment in the book, and it was a pretty long book. It legit kept me captivated from the first page to the last. I’m definitely marking this in my top reads of 2019! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- I have to add a sixth star for my blog rating cause this is definitely one of my top reads of 2019! This is like a Bully/ Best friends Brother / Age-Gap. It has everything you could possibly want!  🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Holy Hot biscuits and Gravy!! Emery and Nash are everything! 🧨 BEYOND HOT Y’ALL💥 🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! IFloved this!! #Perfection

Excerpt

I blinked away the post-orgasm haze as the light flickered on. When my sight cleared and I finally got a look at him, I froze. Shock bulldozed into my body, nearly pushing me back had I not been gripping his flesh.Black spots scattered across my vision, and for a second, I thought I’d faint—and it would still be less mortifying than this.Anything would be less mortifying than this.It was almost too much to process.To make it worse, he was still inside me.This wasn’t Reed Prescott.This was a six-foot-two, hazel-eyed Adonis with short black hair and bedroom eyes that made you picture him naked if you looked long enough. Only he was actually naked and, I repeat, still. Inside. Me.Nash Prescott.Reed’s older brother.His nearly thirty-year-old brother.“You’re soaking my brother’s bed,” Nash remarked as he leaned back against his pillow and took in the sight of me. He looked annoyed, liked I was a pest who had royally fucked up his weekend plans.“You—I—What—” I floundered, my mouth opening and closing like a fish.You slept with Nash Prescott.Nash Fucking Prescott.And it felt amazing.Don’t freak out.Don’t freak out.Don’t freak out.I was totally freaking out.Nash raked his fingers through his hair, leaned over to snatch my robe, and tossed it to me. “Just fucking relax, would you? You’d think the goddamn orgasm would loosen you up.”For a split second, all I could think was, you weren’t always like this.Perhaps to other girls, but never to me.Nash was a fierce protector, the guy who would stop by my table with his brown paper lunch bag when my mom ‘forgot’ to give me lunch money. And while we’d rarely talked, even when he would share his lunch, I always took comfort in knowing I had two protectors—Reed and Nash.I don’t recognize you anymore.The words sat at the tip of my tongue. I would never release them. That was Reed’s hill to die on.I cared because I hated the way Nash stared at me sometimes, accusations stabbing me from his eyes. Snide comments I would never ask him about because I was loyal to Reed, and even talking to Nash felt like picking the wrong side.I wanted to take a few seconds to study Nash, to process my mortification, to enjoy the aftershocks of my first orgasm, yet all I could feel was Nash’s overwhelming gravitational pull, one more dangerous than that of any other boy I’d ever met.But Nash Prescott wasn’t a boy.He was a man.One who made me feel like the little girl I’d convinced myself I wasn’t.My arms slipped through the robe. The second the tie wrapped around my waist, my body solidified. My underwear remained lost somewhere, but at least I was covered.I ignored the sting of his derision, shook my head, and pushed aside the embarrassment. “Did you know?”The sharp accusation unfazed him. He stretched his arms, drawing my attention to the deep V of his body. I clenched around him. A reflex. My mortified eyes flicked up in time to catch his cocked brow.“I figured it out when you moaned my brother’s name while coming around my cock.”

My Review

Sweet Baby Desus in a manger! Y’all better get ready, because this conclusion is crazy, fantastic! I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that was thrown my way in this book. 

Stolen Lies pics up and follows Talia, Kosta and the Demetriou crew right at a year after the major cliffhanger that we were left with a the ending of Hidden Truths. We finally find out what happened to Talia. The question is…What will Kosta do and say about information surrounding Talia’s disappearance when he comes face to face with the details? Who will be the recipient or recipients of his revenge? Will it be a new enemy or someone he once loved? 

Talia was sweet, innocent, yet sassy in the first book. The Mafia Princess inside her shines in this book. We see a strength in her come out like never before. Sometimes you can find strength in the smallest of packages and that’s what happened here. She found hers. It got her through, gave her purpose and focus, and patience. She knew she needed to plan to escape perfectly to be able to get out of the situation she was in at the beginning of the book.

I loved the Talia we got to see in this book. She was so amazing. She was even more loving and nurturing than in the first book. BUT she was also tough as nails and she had to make some life changing, split second decisions and she did them without hesitation. I think she grew into who she was destined to be in this book. 

Kostas was suffocating himself in so much grief in the beginning missing Talia. That was hard to read. He was pining and letting himself go. I was glad for the realization of just how much he loved her to hit him, but hated it had to happen for him in that way. Now, in this book we get to see glimpses of a much softer side to Kostas. The was he is with Talia, made my heart-a- flutter. Kostas is definitely a character that makes heart rates go up and panties drop. There is something to be said for a man that can touch a woman tenderly with a hand that also was used to end someone’s life. So. Freakin.Hot!  

I don’t want to give anything about this book away. So let me say, this story is a web weaved slap full of lies, secrets, scandal, and sex. It’s about murder, kidnapping, revenge and pure hatred. It’s full of so many suspense-filled moments of pure adrenaline rushing, heart-stopping, nail biting, hubby bring me some wine before I throw my kindle, moments. IT IS OFF THE FREAKIN CHARTS THAT GOOD!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️Dark/Mob Suspense Romance ✔️

Suspense ✔️

Slow Burn ✔️

Steam ✔️

Angst and Revenge ✔️

ALL THE FEELS ✔️

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- There isn’t anything hotter that Talia and Kostas… Maybe like the eighth circle of Hades, but that’s about it. They are hotter than everything and everyone else though , and that’s hot AF!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA! Holy flippin’ flapjacks! Talk about clawing, kicking, scratching, dragging your way through a bullet blazing war zone, just to then walk two miles across hot coals get home to find your home taken out by tsunami. Yeah, it felt like this for this poor couple to get to their well earned HEA! But it wait fast paced so the wait cane quickly! 

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some references to the scene in the first book that could be considered triggers for some. They are not overly graphic. This is a “mobish” book so expect the typical blood and gore that comes with such. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.
