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.”

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.”

Madness Release Blitz & Review

Title: Madness
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: Kailee Reese Samuels
Genre: Dark Romance/Reverse Harem
Release Date: December 17, 2019
As a starry-eyed child, I wanted to believe my shining prince would ride up on a white horse, present a diamond ring, and carry me away to his castle. His love would be endless and our lives would be the happily ever after all girls dreamed about. I never knew the fairytale was nothing more than a lie.
I was a good girl.
Until one night, one tiny trip, one little mistake, one moment of indiscretion. 
When I fell down the rabbit hole, I stumbled into the absolute fantasy, succumbing to their whims and rituals. As their very naughty girl, I embraced the nightmare and refused to ever leave.
The Darkland is mine. 
And those monsters will kneel before their one true Queen.

My Review

I have to say Madness is by far the most dark and insanely twisted retelling of the sinister fairy tales collection so far. At least in my opinion. This book is as its titled… Pure delicious, mind blowing Madness! This take or retelling of Alice in Wonderland will leave you simultaneously blown away as wondering exactly WTF did I just read?!?! 

This is Ellison’s story. She is nothing short of insane. She’s the driver of the crazy train y’all. She started off the book with her insanity and I was like “oh damn,  well we going right to crazy town on the first page, okay, okay.” 
Now IRL Alice and Wonderland isn’t even a fairytale I care for,  But I can definitely get on board with this kinda Wonderland! I mean this is a RH (reverse harem) so it’s a sensual and hot and dirty wonderland. Hells yes! 

I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I will just say… Get ready!! Prepare to fall down a devious, dark and twisted rabbit hole of madness and mayhem. There was so much going on and it was crazy, and chaotic. It was wild and really dark. It will have everyone going just a little mad at least for a minute. I think this is definitely one of those books I could go back and read again and probably catch something I might have missed out on the first time, because there are so many characters and so much happening at one time.

I am just a fan of dark and twisted, so this is right up my alley. This sinister fairy tales collection is amazing and this is a fantastic part of it. Definitely recommend for those who love twisted tales. If RH or blood and gore offends you, then this is most definitely NOT the book for you. But if you are open minded about those things I think you will love this book! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- Totally dark and twisted retelling. Recommend for dark romance fans who also love RH!  🔥🔥🔥🔥-CRAZY RH HOTNESS! 🧨 💥 🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! 🔫Trigger Warning- This book does contain violence, blood, gore and is a Reverse Harem. If you are offended by these things this is Not the book for you!

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!!

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.

Sweet Victory Review

BLURB

Holly Vanderbilt is running. 

From her past, her present, her future— everything. 

Baking is her only solace. Cookies, cakes, ingredients coming together, they make sense. 

A professional fighter walking into her kitchen? Not so much.  

Vince Steele is focused on his future. 

The next fight. 

The next win. 

Nothing else matters except feeling the weight of the Light Heavyweight belt around his waist.

Until Holly.

He has what it takes to win the belt. But will Holly’s past prove to be an opponent he can’t beat?

He’s never backed down from a fight. 

He wasn’t going to start now, not when winning Holly’s heart could be the sweetest victory of all.

MY REVIEW

Holy Jingle Bells!! I fell so hard for Gage “The Kraken” in Tap Out! I wasn’t sure my heart had room for another one of the boys in the  BTU crew . But oh how wrong I was. Vince Steele did It y’all. He pushed everyone else outta the running for my man status…at least until Alley releases her next book. Hehe 

Vince is EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything you could possibly want in your H. He’s super sexy. Abs for days. Disciplined, he has that title belt in sight ladies. He’s swoony and sweet, but at the same time Alpha and dirty-talking AF! He sets it mind on something and he’s NOT going to stop until he gets it, and that something just happened to be the new beautiful bombshell baker of his dreams at the coffee shop across from his family’s gym.

From the second he saw the delectable, Holly. He was hooked. She was sassy, and sweet and he wanted, no he needed a taste of her like his next breath. But he knew once he had one, he would never let her go. It was obvious to him from early on that she was hiding something and he wanted to get to the bottom of it.  

Now, Holly was great. She was sassy, strong and amazing. She gave up everything for a life of nothing. Or was it really? She ran from a horrible upbringing, and found where she belongs. Although she was immediately attracted to Vince she is hesitant because of everything she has been through. She just wants to continue her life of baking her delicious treats, singing Christmas tunes and settling into her new life. She never expected to find the world’s sexiest fighter, a coven of new BFF’s that would bring her in and make her part of their family.  While the sparks of attraction and banter took off immediately, the relationship was slow burn, and I loved that. But holy moly, the love scenes y’all. GOOD.GRAVY!

When Holly’s past shows up to threaten her perfect new future she has built for herself. The way all her new friends stood up for her and backed her as one of their own, *fans watery eyes* Like the grinch my heart grew three sizes!! 

This is the third stand-alone in the BTU books and they keep getting better! I most definitely recommend you check out Alley Ciz and the crazy crew she has crafted!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️-Five Golden Stars🎶 Once again Alley Ciz does it. She brings back the BTU crew adds us a new gal Holly and weaves together the perfect blend of sweetness, kindle melting heat, fun coven conversations, hilarious graphic Christmas T-shirts, and threw in some suspense to kick it up a notch! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Keep an eye on your cookies ladies cause they might get burned! So.Freakin.Hot!! Butter melting hot! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy. This is the third book in the BTU series, but like the others can be read as a stand-alone.
