The Boy on the Bridge Release Blitz

Title: The Boy on the Bridge
Author: Sam Mariano
Genre: Bully Romance

Release Date: March 4, 2021

BLURB

The day I met Hunter Maxwell he wasn’t the rich kid who lived in the giant house, he wasn’t the most popular guy in school, he certainly wasn’t the bully who had chased his own best friend out of town after a falling out—he was just a boy with a black eye and a dark secret.

My life would have been much easier if I had stayed out of it, but I couldn’t. I saw someone hurting and wanted to help. I saw someone possibly in danger and wanted to make sure he was safe.
There’s nothing safe about Hunter Maxwell, though. I thought there might be. I fell under his spell. Whatever the world saw when they looked at him, it wasn’t what he showed me.
The bond we formed was real. I know it was real. But with Hunter, when the tides turn, you’d better hope you’re safely on the shore and out of his reach.
I thought I was a strong enough swimmer to keep my head above water. I thought if it came down to it, I could resist his pull.
I didn’t know, but now I do.
Once Hunter sets his sights on you, there’s no such thing as out of his reach. Whether it’s today, tomorrow, or five years from now, he’s coming for me—and when he does, he won’t stop until he’s destroyed me.

EXCERPT

“You sure you want to bail? Leave me here alone in a dark theater with Valerie? Maybe you should tag along and make sure I behave myself.”

I know he’s only ragging on me, but I scoff at him anyway. “Please. I’d never babysit a guy. My mom taught me better than that. If you like Valerie, there’s no way you like me. If you don’t like me, then—”
He stands just as abruptly as I did, moving so close he’s practically on top of me.
My words halt and my amusement fades. His handsome face is so close to mine, my heart sinks. I can’t think straight when he stands so close to me.
“Then what?” he challenges, looking down at me and holding my gaze.
Stampeding wild animals stomp through my chest as I look back at him. I can see from the glimmer in his eyes, he knows exactly how he’s affecting me.
“Don’t torture me, Hunter.”
“This isn’t what it feels like to be tortured by me, Catnip.”

Mourning Wood Release Blitz & Review

 
 
Title: Mourning Wood
Author: Heather M. Orgeron
Genre: Romantic Comedy

Release Date: March 4, 2021
 
BLURB
She’s hard up.
He’s just hard…
 
After an ill-fated one-night stand, Wyatt Landry was the last person I ever expected to see again.
 
By design, mind you, as I spent the last two years avoiding him.
 
He was only ever meant to be a good time—a really good time—and now, thanks to one teensy little mistake, he’s back in my life and wielding an entirely different set of tools.
 
It’s not like I intentionally hired a bogus contractor to redo our chapel, and Lord knows I never imagined Wyatt would ride up in his pickup truck, like a knight in thigh-hugging blue jeans, to save the day.
 
But here he is, and to make matters worse, he’s every bit as charming as I remember, and before I can fully process his reappearance in my life, he has my six-year-old daughter wrapped around his finger, my parents eating out of the palm of his hand, and my best friend shipping us like we’re some celebrity couple.
 
Thankfully, working in the death industry, I’ve mastered the skill of compartmentalization. Keeping my growing feelings tucked away should be a piece of cake. Except, seeing him every day definitely throws a wrench in that plan.
 
Before I know it, we’re trading favors for dates, and as much I don’t want to admit it, the feelings for him I thought were dead and buried are taking root and growing into something that looks a lot like love.
 
Daigle Family Funeral Services… don’t be caught dead any place else.

My Review

Shut the flipping front door y’all! In typical Heather M. Orgeron fashion this book will have you dying laughing. Okay, so maybe not literally dying. But if it did our heroine could totally handle that situation because she’s the hottest funeral director EVER!!

Whitney and Wyatt had me in unstoppable laughter, break my face smiles, and fanning myself because they were hotter than cremation chamber. Their banter was off the charts. The ways in which Whitney did her best to avoid giving into her feelings for Wyatt, and the ways in which he bided his time because he knew she was his from the moment he saw her again, unforgettable. He was so swoony, and sexy. Every damn thing about him was just so dang delicious. I couldn’t help but to love how offended and betrayed she felt at how accepting her family was to Wyatt. Everyone just loved him. 

I was addicted to the strong and beautiful glue of the family and the family business, Whitney. She was an amazing daughter and mother to her little girl, who stole every scene she was in. I was a bit scared when I first started and realized we were reading about a family that ran a funeral home and quickly had flashbacks of My Girl and  poor sweet Thomas J. 😭 Y’all… this was nothing like that. Every line was crafted to make you smile, to make you laugh out loud, and fun flirty moments guaranteed to melt your heart and your kindle. The heat between these two… rivals that of a summer night in New Orleans. 🔥 

From Whitney and Wyatt to best friends, family and flying squirrels. 🐿 All of the the details of the secondary characters, whom I absolutely LOVED btw, was perfectly penned to have us addicted from the first page until we finished. I wasn’t ready to let them go, but I truly loved the ending. This is most definitely a story I will read again when just I’m looking for a day of much needed laughter.

Tequila Rose Release Blitz & Review

 

Tequila Rose by Willow Winters is now live!

 

He tasted like tequila and the fake name I gave him was Rose.

Four years ago, I decided to get over one man, by getting under another. A single night and nothing more.

I found my handsome stranger with a shot glass and charming but devilish smile at the end of the bar. The desire that hit his eyes the second they landed on me ignited a spark inside me, instant and hot. He was perfect and everything I didn’t know I needed. That one night may have ended, but I left with much more than a memory.
Four years later, and with a three-year-old in tow, the man I still dream about is staring at me from across the street in the town I grew up in. I don’t miss the flash of recognition, or the heat in his gaze.

The chemistry is still there, even after all these years.

I just hope the secrets and regrets don’t destroy our second chance before it’s even begun.

My Review

Oh my heart. Tequila Rose by Willow Winters is this amazing book that is a quasi-love triangle book that will change the way you think of love triangles. Even the most cynical of love triangle protesters should give this book a try because the circumstances surrounding the ways everything happens makes this feel different from any other love-tris I’ve read. It’s got so much heart and feeling. I was drawn in and addicted from the first page. Invested in the amazing characters Willow had perfectly crafted for us. 

You will find yourself frustratingly torn between the old and the new. Wondering what the intentions are between these men that have such strong holds on our precious love. 

This is the story of Magnolia, her highschool sweetheart, Robert who broke her heart and sent her flying into the arms of Brody after way too many drinks.  Deciding to toss out a BS name, Rose, just to be anyone other than who she is for one night, their connection is undeniable and electric. However that night turned out to be the single most simultaneously worst and best of her life. I’m not gonna give any more details than that because #SpoilersSuck! 

When the gorgeous stranger she thought she would never see again shows up in her home town for work it most definitely throws Magnolia for a loop. She runs out of the lunch bistro so fast it’s like she’s being chased by a swarm of bees. She is so not ready for a reunion she never thought would come. 

Brody is so excited about the prospect of starting over in a new town in a new business venture with his best friend. When he thinks he spots the beautiful girl who still haunts his dreams from four years ago, he surely must be mistaken. A chance run in at lunch and He learns that not only is it his Rose, but she does NOT want anything to do with him now. He makes it his mission to find out everything about the girl the townspeople refer to as “Magnolia.” But is he really ready for the surprise she has in store for him? 

Five Fantastic Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for This book is full of meddling townsfolk, dreamy episodes of happenstance. Lot’s of fan yourself flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥for this  Sexy, swoony and sweet times. Banter for days and leaves you with lots of mystery, that 🌪 CLIFFY THOUGH y’all,🌪 wondering what’s going to happen. Grab this beautiful and emotional must read today!!

 

Meet Willow


I started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read romance novels and I read everything I could get my hands on. I would read a book a day — sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have connected with so many readers.

And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I’ll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my littles during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a reader and it motivates me to push through and keep writing. I couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful career.

Black Clouds of Cotton Release Blitz & Review




Title: Black Clouds of Cotton
Series: In Vein #2
Author: C.M. Radcliff
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2021

BLURB
Ander was never a part of my plan but when he came tearing into my life, I welcomed his destruction with open arms. 

Our demons danced in the darkness together to a haunting melody of their own. 
But Ander craved the poison that he injected into his veins and in the end, that was the only thing that mattered. 
Contrary to the popular belief: love does not conquer all. 
His love for heroin won. 
His love for me died. 
Or so I thought… 

One fateful night, one detrimental accident. 
That’s all it takes to shatter my already fragile world. 
He’s come back to ruin me what’s left of me. 
And even though I shouldn’t be, I’m ready for his pain.

My Review

My heart is broken right now friends. I’m crushed. 😭

I was devastated going into this book and I left it devastated. Ander and Hadley’s story is so raw and real and gritty, that it rips you to shreds. Tearing you down to your very core and lashing at you like daggers to the heart with the hurt that’s inflicted on these characters over and over again. Hurt thrown by each other and hurt by the biggest assailant of all, addiction. 

As Ander finds himself even deeper into the throws of his addiction, Hadley is in a downward spiral of despair and doesn’t even realize it. Heroin has her clutches deep into Ander, and that addiction is taking over him. But Hadley, our broken and beautiful Hadley has an addiction that’s threatening to take her down too, her addiction to Ander.

I’m not going to give any specific details about this book I will just say this book is an amazingly angst filled, emotionally gripping ride. It’s heartbreaking and poignant and tear jerking and just so frustrating. You can help but to want to fix everything for these characters you’ve fallen so hard for. You have started the countdown to the next book and secretly started to dread the day you will eventually have to say goodbye to these characters because I don’t want this series to ever end. Brace for impact my loves because we are so far from the end of this journey. 

All my love and the stars in the sky for Ander and Hadley!! 

Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- MY ACHING HEART!! This book y’all O-M-G.The love I have for these characters, the  angst, so much heart. The raw and real ness. If only love and want could heal our broken people we love. These characters have my heart. FOREVER. The dookie storm they have ahead of them!! These characters are gonna give me gray hair I swear it!💀💀

🔥🔥🔥🔥 Holy Hell Y’all!! Ander and Hadley are both hurting but when they are together it feels healing at least for those moments. It’s sweet and sensual and oh so hot! and healing perfection! Ander gave Hadley everything he had to give and and she took it. This was sexy, dirty, raw, and heartbreaking love makin’.

EXCERPT

My addiction stripped me of the only person I had ever loved. 
There was no going back from what I did to her and how I betrayed her, but I would give anything just to see her one more time. To hear the soft sound of her voice, to feel her skin against mine… 
Slowly peeling open my eyes, I lift my head, looking back down the street and watch the cars as they speed past. Turning my head in the opposite direction, I glance back toward the hospital and my heart stops beating in my chest. My breath catches in my throat and all of the air is stolen from my lungs. My surroundings fade away and I’m frozen in place, staring at a fucking ghost. 
The very ghost with those hazel eyes that haunt my mind. 
Hadley fucking Winters.

Reliable Carrie. Friendly. Quirky. Perhaps a little strange.

What do you really know about me, though?

The details of my past are up for debate.

I’ve been careful to hide my sins, and even more careful to follow the rules.

I do as I’m told. I keep to myself. I don’t mess around with boys, and I’m always ready to run.

At least that’s what I tell myself, anyway.

Since I met him, I’ve broken every single rule in the book.

He’s impossible. Arrogant. Terrifying.

If I’m not careful, Wolf Hall’s golden boy will do more than make me break the rules. He’ll wind up breaking me.

My Review

These boys start a Riot wherever they go!! 😍  I am obsessed, like fantastically fanatically OBSESSED with the Crooked Sinners series. Y’all I thought I loved Wren and Elodie, but honestly nothing could have prepared me for the outpouring of love my heart would have for Dashiell and Carina.

Holy hell y’all my poor heart was broken and beaten, torn around and twisted. But it also melted and swooned and just plain fell hard core IN LOVE with Lord Lovett. 

GAH! Lord Dashiell August Richmond Belleview Lovett the Fourth.What.a.mouthful 😏 This beautiful and tortured boy, broken by the very people who we’re supposed to love him the most. Neglected but not in the ways one would see, and by all accounts had anything and everything a person could want. His heart was destroyed as a child and the only people who he truly cared about are his two best friends and roommates at the Riot House, Wren and Pax. Drinking, party and plowing through the bevy of ladies at their disposal, while trying to keep up with his father’s impossibly high standards was getting exhausting. 

When Carina Mendoza caught the attention of Dash she put at risk the only relationships he’s willing to have with anyone and he’s not willing to put them on the line. He’s not strong enough to resist her temptation though, so he makes her his in every way that she can…except NOBODY can know about them.  Until their secrets put the one person in jeopardy he was never supposed to fall for, the one person who became his universe. 🪐

Carina “Carrie” Mendoza has spent years behind secrets and lies,  hiding things about her life to everyone around her. This gorgeous, colorful girl with dreams and stars in her eyes for Dash. She’s sweet l, sassy and loyal to her friends. The things this girl has endured and overcome. She is my HERO, she’s a rockstar. 

She is amazing. I want everything good in life for her, she deserves it. I want her to have a fairytale with a Lord instead of a prince. When she was devastated, I was devastated. This book is such an incredible journey. It’s the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. When Dash does the unthinkable and actually delivered on every single promise he made the night she gave him everything, she gave him the one thing she thought she never would… the power to destroy her heart. 💫☄️💔

You will get Wren, Elodie, Pax and Presley. You will see more in-depth into what happened that fateful night we first read about in Riot House. While this book is a stand-alone, it has interconnected characters and storylines so I recommend you read both to fully understand the full magnitude of the transformation seen in all the characters. Plus it’s just so flipping phenomenal. Grab this today!! All the stars in the sky and hotter than the flames of hades! Oh yeah! ⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥

My Review 

img_0017-1

I have lived and I have loved is not only a fantastic anthology but it is a fantastic anthology that is going to an amazing cause. I love when I can support a great cause and get little tastes from some of my favorites or even new to me authors. This collection was just that. From the beginning to the very end, each story gives you the very best of what we all desire. It cuts right to the heart and gives us the sexiest, swoony, and sweetest moments of these sinful and delicious short novellas.  I fell in love with each couple and loved that they were all so perfect and different. Each writer or duet of writers captured my attention quickly and held it every moment of their story. I can’t wait to read more from the new to me authors and to check out the rest of the stories that have “more to come.” Nikki Ash really delivered with her story bringing us Sierra and Kolton’s story( Keegan’s brother from Fool Me Once) There are just too many great to name them all.

My name is Zayn Bronsyn,

and I think I screwed up.

I wasn’t supposed to fall,

especially not for her.

She’s in a league of her own,

and I’m just her brother’s scumbag friend.

The last time I saw her,

she was thirteen with braces.

Now, she’s back from boarding school,

with an hourglass body that’ll bring me to my knees.

If Easton finds out I hooked up with his sister,

he might actually kill me.

She’s too innocent, too perfect for a guy like me,

but I can’t resist dragging her into my messed up world.

Amelia Donovan might be the one to revive my blackened heart.

My Review

Oh My Heart y’all! This flipping story. I love Kelsey Clayton, Y’all!  I was so excited for this book to hit my kindle and HOLY WOW! It was everything I had hoped for it to be and more.  I’m not sure I was quite ready for everything Zayn Bronsyn was packing though. He was the ultimate bad boy, all kinds of deliciousness y’all! I absolutely love him! GAH! He and Meelz are perfect for each other, but unfortunately they are oh so forbidden and Just.Cant.Happen. Being that he is her brother’s best friend and roommate and all. This story is so freakin addictive. Zayn and Amelia were perfectly made for each other, they were just inevitable from the get go. Their “happy private hiddened moments “ absolutely melted my heart.

Every.Single.One.Of.Them! But, oh  their journey was never going to be easy, the secrets and lies that were standing in their way in addition to the family drama. Zayn’s lengths in which he would need to go to protect the ones he loves knows no bounds.  But that’s all I’m going to say about that. 

Zayn was the gorgeous guy with the tattoos and piercings and all around sexy bad boy looks,  but he really was good and protective of those he loves to the depths of his soul. Living a semi-double life, he was all that’s good and bad, simultaneously living right and wrong. ( this will make more sense when you read it but #SpoilersSuck so not sorry for being vague) He has secretly had it bad for Amelia from the moment she steps on that college campus. She’s everything good and happy and light. 

Amelia is amazingly beautiful, super smart with goals in her future.  She comes from a good family, and is super close with her somewhat overprotective brother. But he loves her! For years she has secretly loved and fantasized about Zayn. She finally works up the nerve and lays it all on the line only to be left heartbroken and rejected by his hot and cold ways. She can see in his eyes that he really wants her but she has decided if he doesn’t want her, she will find someone who does. Will this light the fire under Zayn to get him to lay claim to her or will he continue with his games, and what will happen if her brother , Easton was to find out what they have been doing behind closed doors? 

For so many reasons he feels unworthy of Amelia’s love and while that hurts my heart I do get it and it makes the emotional journey that much more excruciating to endure, In the best possible way. The push and pull and the angst of him doing what he needs to make her not want him was devastating and frustrating and heartbreaking all at once and it was.just.perfect. It’s everything I want from a book like this. All.The.Feels! You need to read this book ASAP! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- SO much HEART in this one little book. This wasn’t what I was expecting from a brothers best friends romance. It was way better! It had me in my feelings and all angsty! The determination of the h to get her H and to make him see himself as she sees him. GAH! You could feel it all coming off the pages. Perfect! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-For Meelz and for Zayn this was way worth the wait and so much more. Are you ready for simultaneous melting of your heart…and your panties. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFY Y’ALL!It doesn’t get any better than this! #PERFECTION

Blurb:
Can you keep a secret?

I grew up sick.

Let me clarify.

I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.

Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.

 When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.

Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.

Secrets that cost us everything to keep.

That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.

Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.

And all were punished.⁣⁣

My Review

Mind.Offically.Blown!🤯 This phenomenal book, part one to the amazing new duet by Kate Stewart is shocking, awe inspiring, thought provoking and suspenseful. The level of chemistry is astronomical.

I will do my very best to not give anything about this book away so I am going to keep it as vague as possible. 

This is the story of Cecelia and Sean, her supervisor at her new job working for her father’s company. They meet in employee orientation and sparks are immediate. When she meets his roommates a different dimension is added to this story. After his wickedly delicious roommate Dominic comes on the scene, this entire book takes you on a journey of forbidden, temptation personified.

It’s a world of secrets, lies and obsession, and Cecelia finds herself caught up in it all. I can’t wait to see what happens in book two, because the end of book one sure left me breathless.😱

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️-I’m officially DEAD. This book was everything. It was so full of chemistry, secrets , suspense, angst, sex, heart, banter,tears,sexual tension , loss, revenge, and frustration, and lies, lies, lies! The characters are fantastic and I can’t wait for more! I’m literally on edge from the end of this book!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! PANTY CHUCKER ALERT. I mean what a lucky lady Harlow is!! Four Alpha AP Deliciously Dirty Dudes. Yes please!! Yummy! Sexy scenes were indescribably off the charts hot!
