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.”

Midnight Kiss Review

BLURB

𝔻𝕚𝕣𝕥𝕪. 𝔼𝕧𝕚𝕝. 𝕍𝕚𝕝𝕖. 𝔹𝕖𝕒𝕦𝕥𝕚𝕗𝕦𝕝.⁣

Logan Gregory is the devil in human form. ⁣

I should have stayed far away, but my weakness for evil men and a negative bank balance made him impossible to ignore.⁣

𝐇𝐞 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐚 𝐧𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐲.⁣

𝐈 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲.⁣

The job was simple. Our roles were clearly defined. ⁣

Then my stupid heart got involved. ⁣

We shared stolen kisses after midnight. Kisses dipped in secrets and sprinkled with lies.⁣

They say what’s done in the dark always comes to light. ⁣

𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭.

My Review

Logan Gregory is just as described. Evil, horribly vile, bordering on cruel. But he’s also gorgeous, deliciously dirty and will melt you right into a puddle of googly eyes and sweet fantasies when you see him with his little girl. What a horrible combination for any woman’s poor heart and panties, they don’t stand a chance.

I mean who can blame you really , not surprising if the lines start to blur. So, He laid down the rules, he drew the lines and made sure there was no room for errors or misunderstandings. But who’s to say… would he be able to follow his own rules? The green eyed-monster is an ugly thing that gets a hold of us all! What about Emma ?!?! What would you do if you saw glimpses of a good guy beneath the deplorable guy he wanted you to see? When secrets come out, will Logan lose everything he didn’t know he even wanted? 

Emma was just looking for a fresh start. She came to Brighton U because no one knew her, or her past. The pretty princess exiled to escape her past. She just wanted to live a drama free existence. She needed money. Logan Gregory offered her a nanny job with additional job responsibilities after hours for more money that she could imagine. But was it worth the money or the risk to her heart? She had no one to help her. His daughter was adorable so that part of the job was a no-brainer. She wanted to care for Chelsea and do all the fun things that that entailed. But what would she do about some of the more unorthodox job responsibilities he was asking of her? It was obvious her and Logan were immensely attracted to each other, so why not enter into an agreement that would benefit them both as long as feelings didn’t get in the way? 

Emma had been through a lot in her past and my heart broke for her. It wasn’t fair how she had been treated and left to deal with the fall-out of what had happened in the past. I loved her character though. She was strong and resilient. The way she handled Logan was nothing short of perfection. She was sassy and verbally sparred with him. It was hot and filled with sexual tension. I loved that she stood up to him. She was the perfect balance for this intimidating businessman. 

But how will our sweet and sassy Nanny handle it when she feels like the past is repeating itself? 

Chelsea was the absolute cutest kid ever. I lived for any scene where she was present. She was a feisty little mini Logan and she was already putting boys in their place. Lol  This book has everything you could possibly want. This is a must read for age-gap and single dad romance fans both!!

Sacrifice Release Blitz & Review

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

My Review

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

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

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

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

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

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

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

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

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