Pen Pal, an all-new dark and gripping story from international bestselling author J.T. Geissinger is available now!

The first letter arrived the day my husband was buried. It was postmarked from the state penitentiary, and contained a single sentence:

I’ll wait forever if I have to.

It was signed by Dante, a man I didn’t know.

Out of simple curiosity, I wrote back to ask him what exactly he was waiting for. His reply?

You.

I told the mystery man he had the wrong girl. He said he didn’t. I said we’d never met, but he said I was wrong.

We went back and forth, exchanging letters every week that grew increasingly more intimate. Then one day, the letters stopped.

When I found out why, it was already too late.

Dante was at my doorstep.
And nothing on earth could have prepared me for what happened next.

My Review

HOLY MIND CLICKETY- CLUCK MY FRIENDS!! This amazingly unforgettable story has got me so twisted and turned inside out. I legit had to sit back a while and just process my feelings on this one. Honestly, I’m still processing, still heavily feeling and quite tender and emotional still. This story was phenomenally incredible.  I’m getting choked up because It was just truly remarkable. A brave and daring and non-traditional take on a dark and thrilling romance. Addicted from the first page this story is both chilling and eerie, but also emotional, original,  steamy.  A book that Is not soon to leave my head or the reeling it has my mind in, so trying to wrap my head around exactly how I am feeling so that I could even begin to convey this to others has been quite the chore, because the thing is… You know what they say about assuming?! Lol    But alas, I went into this book assuming I was getting a certain type of story and to be honest, this was anything BUT the assumptions I had set up in my own head going in. ( To me this turned out to be a good thing) 

Now without giving any spoilers away, let me just tell you what I did to myself here.  Based on blurb alone here I jumped in thinking, m’kay so this is probably some type of prison pen pal love story. This is my first book by this author, but I have heard great things and she’s been on my TBR for awhile.  So when this opportunity presented itself I scooped up the chance to read this sucker, and dove right in when the ARC appeared. 

It certainly didn’t take long before I realized this book had this whole dark and eerie tone to it. BTW, I was absolutely here for it too! I was like yeah this is going to be more mysterious/suspenseful, probably  some thriller action. I was excited to see how the dark romance was going to tie in. But as soon as the story got going I was just entranced y’all. I am talking about smokin’ hot scenes. Like hotter than a big ‘ol  pan of biscuits and gravy right off the stove. The dirty talkin’, oh my word, the dirty talkin’. Put a fork in me because I was done. I mean our couple were just EVERYTHING I wanted them to be. 

This story takes you on a journey and when you feel like you might be getting a grip on some of what’s going on, your world will be shattered, you will realize nothing is what It seemed and It’s better to just roll with the waves, instead of trying to swim against the current. 

Now here is where reviews are mixed… Either you are happy with what the author did here, or it seems readers just can’t. ME, I happened to have absolutely LOVED what this author did with this book. When I started feeling like “ no, way.” “No you aren’t girl.”  “You are, aren’t you?” I didn’t know how I felt about that, but when the book was all done. I sat back, with tears in my eyes, and all I could think was WOW! BRAVO! While this wasn’t what I went into this book expecting this to be, I was absolutely blown away by this story. By this author’s writing. Her ability to sweep me into this story. I went through all the emotions a person can feel while reading this story and am still after. Now, let’s talk about that ending. I know reference to a HEA has been mentioned. Does this story have a HEA? Well, no. Not in the traditional romance genre HEA. But In my opinion and for me, yes absolutely. I felt that the ending for me was as HEA. Without giving any spoilers for this book, these characters, and their journey, I think their ending is as happy an ever after as I hope mine would be in the same situation.

Excerpt

It’s raining as my husband’s casket is lowered into the hole in the ground. Raining hard, as if the sky itself is about to rip in half like my heart has.
I stand motionless under an umbrella with the other mourners, listening to the priest drone on about resurrection and glory, blessings and suffering, redemption and the holy love of God. So many words, and all so meaningless.
Everything is meaningless. There’s a Michael-shaped hole in my chest, and nothing matters anymore.
That must be why I feel so numb. I’m empty. Grief has blown me apart, scattering my bones into a desert wasteland where they’ll bake in silence under a merciless sun for a thousand years.
A woman behind me quietly weeps into her handkerchief. Sharon? Karen? A colleague of Michael’s who I met at a long-ago faculty party. One of those awful holiday work parties in a school auditorium where they serve cheap wine in plastic cups and people stand around making awkward small talk until they’re drunk enough to say what they really think about each other.
Sharon or Karen behind me told Michael he was a prick at that party. I can’t remember why, but that’s probably why she’s crying now.
When someone dies, you start counting all the ways you failed them.
The priest makes the sign of the cross over his chest. He closes his Bible and steps back. I walk slowly forward, bend down to grasp a handful of soil from the pile to one side, then toss it onto the closed casket.
The wet clump of dirt makes an ugly hollow sound when it lands on the gray lid of the coffin, an uncaring splat of finality. Then it slides off, leaving a smear of brown behind like a shit stain.
Abruptly, I’m shaking with anger. I taste ashes and bitterness in my mouth.
What a stupid ritual this is. Why do we even bother? It’s not like the dead can see us mourning them. They’re gone.
A sudden gust of cold wind rattles the leaves in the trees. I turn and walk away through the rain, not looking back when someone softly sobs my name.
I need to be alone with my grief. I’m not one of those people who likes to commiserate over a tragedy. Especially when the tragedy is my own.
When I open the front door of the house, it takes a moment for me to register that I’m home. I have no recollection of the drive from the gravesite to here, though the blank spot in time doesn’t surprise me. Since the accident, I’ve been in a fog. It’s as if my brain is blanketed in thick clouds.
I kick off my shoes and leave them under the console table in the foyer. Tossing my wool coat onto the back of a kitchen chair, I head to the fridge. I open the door and stand looking inside as rain drums against the windowpanes and I try to convince myself I’m hungry.
I’m not. I know I should eat to keep my strength up, but I have no appetite for anything. I let the door swing shut and press my fingers against my throbbing temples.
When I turn around, I notice the envelope on the table next to the fruit bowl. It sits by itself, a white rectangle with neat handwriting and a stamp that reads “LOVE” in red letters.
I know for a fact it wasn’t there when I left.
My first thought is that Fiona must’ve brought in the mail. Then I remember she cleans the house on Mondays. Today’s Sunday.
So how did it get there?
As I cross to the table and pick up the letter, a rumble of thunder rattles the windows. A sudden gust of wind whistles through the trees outside. The eerie feeling intensifies when I read the return address.
Washington State Penitentiary.
Frowning, I tear open the edge of the envelope and pull out the single sheet of white unlined paper inside. I unfold it and read aloud.
“I’ll wait forever if I have to.”
That’s it. There’s nothing else, except a signature scratched below the words.
Dante.
I flip the page over, but it’s blank on the other side.
For a fleeting moment, I think the letter must be intended for Michael. That idea gets tossed aside when I realize it’s addressed to me. That’s my name right there on the front of the envelope, printed in neat block letters with blue pen. This Dante person, whoever he is, meant for me to receive this.
But why?
And what is he waiting for?
Unsettled, I fold the letter into thirds, stuff it back into the envelope, and drop it on the table. Then I make sure all the doors and windows are locked. I draw the drapes and blinds against the wet gray afternoon, pour myself a glass of wine, then sit at the kitchen table, staring at the envelope with a strange feeling of foreboding.
A feeling that something’s coming.
And that whatever it is, it isn’t good.

In Chaos We Reign Blog Tour & Review

Everything they thought they knew is about to change.

In Chaos We Reign, an all-consuming dark romance from Wall Street Journal bestselling author Amo Jones is out now!

I was the trick that they could never play.
She was the greatest game of all…

There was elegance that comes from being carved from the ashes of all the darkness that surrounds you in the world. You start as dust, and you end as dust. At least that’s what I always thought. Crowned Princess Mayhem all my life became old fast, and I found myself forging my iron crown with the blood of our enemies.

To The Brothers of Kiznitch, I was nothing but a little brat that always got my way. I was the sister none of them asked for, but they’d find themselves needing. He was no different. Loving Keaton Cicero was never going to be easy. There was evil within him that would never be accepted.

They thought their over-protectiveness had kept me safe all these years, but they were wrong. Everything they thought they knew, was about to burn around them. I wasn’t someone who needed protecting…

They were.

In Chaos We Reign can be read as a stand-alone, but it is recommended to read In Silence She Screams first to better understand some story points.

My Review

FABULOUSLY FLOORED!! 🤯 That is just one of the ways to describe how I’m feeling. This book, the ending to this unforgettably magnificent series has got me feeling all kinds of ways. I have always been one who would never turn down an Amo Jones book, but y’all, Y’ALL!! 🫶🏻 I am blown away by the brilliance and talent this author poured out on the pages of In Chaos We Reign. Her ability to take me into this dark and ominous world she’s created. The eerie feelings of mystery, all the lies, and tons of secret twists and turns will keep you entranced and on the edge of your seat. 🙀This tale is deliciously dark and deviantly dirty. A twisted, gritty and gruesome tale, totally fitting for our Ice Princess, Cartier and her forbidden beau, Keaton. Their story as unique and tragically twisted as those before them is one of my favorites. The deep depravity and hidden lies behind these two. But the way they are when its just the two of them. OMG! I am not gonna give away anything more than that. 

Amo concludes her Midnight Mayhem world in the way only she can. I do wish I had time to refresh my memories and reread all the other three books in the series again before reading ICWR. I think it would have made some things a bit clearer. I had to do some mind searching. lol Unpredictable, mesmerizing, explosive, alluring, and addictive! I will never forget this series. It is officially one of my all time favorites and one I will reread over and over again. I will warn you It is at times gruesome and graphic. If you have triggers I would recommend checking trigger warnings but If you are like me just jump right in and ENJOY!!  All the stars for this phenomenally awesome series.⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨ 

    

Keep reading for a look inside In Chaos We Reign!

Chapter One
Cartier
Sixteen years old
I remember the first time I realized my brother was crazy. I was twelve years old, and I watched him rip the meat off a man’s bones after he kidnapped me and locked me in an abandoned house to play dress-up. The man was a stranger, and even though our family business was risky, it had no connection with Midnight Mayhem or Kiznitch. Yet my glorious brother tore him to pieces with his bare hands and didn’t blink once. Tonight is just like then, only worse. Worse because this is someone I know, and it’s someone who tried to hurt me.
Doors slam closed outside, and I stop pouring the cashmere pink bubbles into my bath. Reaching for my phone on the counter, I open Spotify and hit play on “OT” by Niykee Heaton before dipping my toe into the warm water. Bubbles spill onto the dark veined marble floors as I sink deeper beneath the water, closing my eyes in an attempt at scrubbing the night away. I don’t want Kyrin to hear me cry because I know it will only make him worse. I’ve handled this school since my parents dumped me in it when Kyrin threw a fit to keep me away from Mayhem, and I will continue to handle it when he goes back on the road. Right now, I need peace. I need to feel nothing. See nothing. Hear nothing. They say drowning is the most peaceful death, I can imagine why. After being suffocated from oxygen for minutes, you welcome the feeling of numbness. Like now. Void. Stuck between a realm of life and death, I could float and hold my breath until I simply… die.
A hand is around my throat, pulling me out of my haze and I swipe water from my face angrily when I resurface. “What the fuck!” As soon as my eyes open, they land on Keaton, one of the four Brothers of Kiznitch. He and my brother have been inseparable since they were born—they all are—but Keaton isn’t like the rest of them. He is simply… different.
My mouth closes as I take in his clothes. Blotches of blood litter his designer jeans, and when I finally look up at his face, I find mud and more blood all over his cheek and shirt. The Brothers of Kiznitch have all been my extended brothers, all of them except Keaton. He is nothing like a brother to me, and that’s largely because he has never treated me the same way the other Brothers have. He doesn’t seem pissed about my presence, but not that fond of it either. He has always just existed. For a long time anyway. But I don’t know if I’d call what we share a normal friendship. My stomach always twists anytime I catch him staring, and it’s become more frequent the older I get, but that doesn’t change the fact that we both fight. Fight probably more than any of the other brothers, Kyrin not included.
“What the fuck, Keaton?” I glare up at him while leaning back against the curve of the bath, flicking my toe against the faucet to turn the hot water back on.
I see him dip to a kneeling position out of the corner of my eye, when his fingers curl around my chin, forcing my face to his. I hold my breath when his eyes settle on mine. Keaton is the scariest of all The Brothers—to everyone but me. Darkness hovers over him everywhere he goes, and no matter what he does, he’ll never be rid of it. Torment swims beneath the surface of his god-like features, and it has always bothered me that I can never take it away. No one can.
“Was there anyone else involved?” His voice is low enough to be a warning. I find myself losing my train of thought when I trace the edges of his naturally swollen lips.
“No,” I whisper, only it comes out broken from the saliva forming in my throat.
He stands back to his full height and kicks off his boots, tugging his shirt over his head from the back and throwing it onto a pile in the corner.
“Keaton…” I warn. “If Kyrin—”
“—don’t really give a fuck right now, Tigger.” I close my eyes and lean against the edge of the bath, listening as the clink of his belt falls to the floor before a long stretch of silence drifts between us. Just when I think he’s not going to do what he’s going to do, I feel his leg brush mine as he lowers himself into the bath opposite me. Keaton and I have kept each other at a distance, and most of the time I think I’m imagining the things I do. The long stares, brushes of hands, lingering touches. We fight as hard as we clearly care about one another, but it has always been clear. The lines have never been blurred.
Until now.

Devil of Dublin Cover Reveal

BB Easton has revealed the cover for Devil of Dublin!

Releasing: September 27, 2022

Cover designer: Damonza

Photographer: Regina Wamba

Cover Model: Jered Sternaman

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 44 Chapters About 4 Men (inspiration for the Netflix Original series Sex/Life) comes a dark mafia romance steeped in Irish folklore.

I can’t remember anymore if my grandfather’s eyes were blue or green, but I’ll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes. Or the way they sparkled with mischief when he told me tales about the magical creatures that dwelled in the forest behind his humble Irish sheep farm—shy fairies who liked to eat tea biscuits, cruel witches who liked to eat children, a moody lake spirit with a taste for expensive gifts.

As a child, I believed every fantastical word. But when he warned me about the mute boy who also lurked in those woods, the one the priest had declared to be the spawn of Satan himself, I refused to listen. Kellen wasn’t evil. He was kind, and beautiful, and special, and hurting. He was my friend. And with every summer I spent stolen away with him in those enchanted woods, he grew to become so much more.

But when I return to Glenshire as an adult, grieving and engaged to someone else, all those legends quickly morph into nightmares.

My grandfather had been right about everything, especially the boy.

If only I had listened.

WARNING: If you are a sensitive reader or find certain subject matter triggering, please exercise self-care and select a different book. Devil of Dublin is a dark romance, intended for mature audiences who enjoy high emotional intensity, explicit adult content, graphic violence, heart-pounding suspense, fairy-tale worthy love, and gorgeous Irish scenery. If that sounds like you, then … welcome to Glenshire!

Pre-order today on all platforms!

Meet BB Easton


Wall Street Journal bestselling author BB Easton lives in the suburbs of Atlanta with her long-suffering husband, Ken, and two adorable children. A few years ago, she quit her job as a school psychologist to write books about her punk rock past and deviant sexual history full-time. Ken wasn’t super excited about that, but now that he’s appeared in three of her books and inspired a TV show character, he’s incredibly supportive.

BB’s debut memoir, 44 Chapters About 4 Men, went on to inspire the Netflix original series, Sex/Life, which was viewed by 67 million households worldwide within the first month making it the 3rd most-watched Netflix original series of all time. Because she had so much fun writing 44 Chapters, BB went on to publish four more wickedly funny, shockingly steamy, and heartwarmingly autobiographical books, one for each man in her memoir—Skin, Speed, Star, and Suit.

The Rain Trilogy—a dark, immersive, end-of-the-world romance—was BB’s first work of fiction. Or at least, that’s what she thought when she wrote it in 2019. Then, 2020 hit, and all of her dystopian plot points started coming true. Hoping to fix everything, BB returned with a fun, feel-good romantic comedy called Group Therapy, but alas, the world is still on fire … and so is BB’s desire to write intense, us-against-the-world romances. Her next release, Devil of Dublin, is a dark Irish mafia romance steeped in folklore and family secrets.

You can find BB procrastinating in all of the following places:

An Enemies-to-Lovers, Close-Proximity, Second-Chance Romance from A.L. Jackson

Coming August 29th

“Aster Costa has always been mine.”

Cover: RBA Designs
Photo: Wander Aguiar

DETAILS:
TITLE: NEVER LOOK BACK
RELEASE DATE: AUGUST 29TH, 2022


Synopsis
From NYT and USA Today bestselling author A.L. Jackson comes an enemies-to-lovers, close-proximity,
second-chance romance…

Logan Lawson won me in a bet.

The second I saw him sitting at the illegal card table, I knew I was in trouble.
Years ago, he sealed my fate and condemned me to a life I didn’t want to lead.
Yet he’s filled with untamed fury and thirsting for vengeance against the husband I hate.

Aster Costa is everything I never should have wanted.
The second she showed with her pompous, prick of a husband, I should have gotten up and walked.
But there’s no looking away from the woman who wrecked me.
Worse, I can’t stop myself from plotting to get her back.

I want nothing more than to be free of my husband.
I’m afraid Logan Lawson is the only one who can make that happen.
He might hate me for our past, but now it’s me on my knees begging for help.

Finding each other in the middle of it wasn’t supposed to be part of the bargain.
But once Logan touches me, I’m gone.
A torch is rekindled. A fire is lit.
Aster Costa has always been mine.
And this time, no matter the cost, I won’t give her back…

Is there anything better than a yummy second chance romance?! How about a delicious slow burn with a side of groveling hero and several good ‘ol helpings of hate to love/angst.  ALL.OF.THAT and more is what you are in for with Garnet Flats. So good y’all. I have loved every single book so far in the Eden’s series and frankly couldn’t wait for Talia’s turn after the glimpses we’ve had of her in the previous books. Author Devney Perry did not disappoint with Talia and Foster’s heart wrenching journey back together after seven years apart and a lot of bitterness, hurt, lies, and misunderstandings.

Garnet Flats is an emotionally gripping tale about a young woman finding her forever person only to have him marry her closest friend instead. That life changing, unforgettable kind of love that when lost you never fully recover from. Oh the devastation your first true broken heart leaves you with, I’m sure most of us remember it well. I know I do. I dove right into this unique twist on the, left me for my best friend trope, and devoured every word of this within a day, as it brought me right back into my feels of first loves, first heartbreaks, and lessons in forgiveness in relationships.

Talia Eden loved her college sweetheart Foster more than anything. She saw her entire future with him. Then in a devastating blow he shocked her by marrying her best friend and roommate. Seven years later he shows up freshly divorced and ready to make amends and win her back. But if he thinks finally telling her why he did what he did will just easily wipe the slate clean, he is in for a rude awakening. Talia is still hurt, and quite frankly straddling that thin line between love and hate.  

When Foster, a UFC fighter ( um holy hotness people 🔥🤤) shows back up in Quincey determined to finally tell the only woman who’s ever truly held his heart why he really broke hers all those years ago he knows it’s not going to be easy peasy. Getting Talia back may be the hardest fight he’s ever taken on. But he’s ready, heart in hand, to jump into the ring and fight it out until he emerges the victor. He’s not looking for a belt, nor a title. He only wants her. He knew whatever anger she threw his way was absolutely his fault and he was ready to own it. He wanted to lay it all out there on the line, while also helping her to remember just how good it used to be between them. He knows he still loves her, and he’s sure hoping she feels the same. Well anger isn’t the only thing causing the heat to rise between these two. 

Everything about Talia and Foster had me hooked from the very beginning. From being back in Quincey, to scenes with Eden’s from the past books in the series. Which is awesome because I am never going to want to part with this series. I will go back for a total series reread at some point for sure. This book broke my heart just as much as it healed it. This standalone with interconnecting characters told in alternating dual POV’s is a great addition to the series. You can start with Garnet Flats or start at the beginning with Juniper Hill today. I already can’t wait for the next book, Jasper Vale.

Never With Me Release Blitz & Review




Title: Never With Me
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 26, 2022

BLURB
Ramsey


I’m out of my depth participating in a blind-date photo shoot. Not only am I meant to act like I’m open for dating, but I’m meant to be sexy and get up close and personal with a complete stranger.

None of the above is me. But I’m a sucker, and my best friend can talk me into anything.

Deacon is the kind of guy my heart could be safe with. But I’ve been taking care of myself for a long time, and I’m not sure I’m ready to rely on anyone else. Not even the handsome, successful older brother of my best friend.


Deacon

I never saw her coming. One date with a beautiful stranger and I’m hooked.

Technically, Ramsey isn’t a stranger. She’s my little sister’s best friend, the same sister who volunteered me because she claims “I’m a workaholic in desperate need of love.”

All I know is I can’t stop thinking about Ramsey and the way her lips felt against mine. I have to see her again. Good thing I’m an attorney, because convincing her to take a chance on me is going to be the hardest case I’ve ever pleaded. She’s worried about the past repeating itself. What she’s yet to figure out is that her fear is unnecessary… never with me.

My Review

Kaylee Ryan has done it again my book lovin’ friends. Dropped right in with another one of her perfectly delicious, sweet, and fantastically swoony stories that make you feel all ooey gooey and fluttery inside. Never With Me is Ramsey and Deacon’s remarkably heartfelt journey that will have you feeling good, maybe a little frustrated a couple of times, and a whole lotta love for ALL the characters in this book. From the very first time they saw each other they had undeniable instant chemistry and an instant connection, making this a super flirty, fun, and definitely a fan yourself because it’s so freaking hot, tale of love.  It just further cemented to me why this author IS and WILL REMAIN one of my one-click favorites for steamy, dreamy, feel-good romances.

One of my favorite things about this author’s works is how big family plays a part in her books/series. You can’t help but to want to be a part of these stories. To be friends or a cousin or someone because I want to be at a family cookout or something hanging out with all these awesome people. One thing is for certain,  I am always up for being swept away into the magical book worlds that author Kaylee Ryan has created. 

Ramsey Rammed Her Way right into my heart from page one with her emotional backstory. From the first paragraph of the prologue I knew this woman deserved so much more than she had ever been given before. She needed to be loved wholly, completely, unequivocally. I love how coming to Willow River was her new start and she was ultimately able to find everything she needed to heal the parts of her that had been cracked and broken by the ones who were supposed to take care of her when she was younger. She found her people. She finally had a true loving support system.

When a favor to her introduces her to, Deacon the drop dead gorgeous older brother of her best friend, Palmer. Instantly attracted but hesitant for several reasons Deacon seriously has his work cut out for him if he wants to wear her down and get her to give him a chance. Not only is he older but also the workaholic brother of her BFF, but he has to penetrate walls of protection put up to protect the heart of a woman that has been hurt and does not trust or intend to ever depend on a man again.

My heart just bled for them both. I love the personal growth her character went through in this book. The way she grew more confident in voicing what fears she had, the things she had been through. The way she opened up. She was already strong but with his backing she was even more so. GAH!! She did good Y’all!

I am definitely Devoted to Deacon. While he may be a workaholic because he has goals that include taking over the law firm where he works when the partners retire. Up to this point he really hasn’t had any drive to find a girlfriend because that would just occupy time he could devote to working instead. But holy moly ladies, he’s a total sweetheart.

He’s sexy and everything about him is the stuff book boyfriend dreams are made of. A successful lawyer who loves his family, is patient, supportive and kind, plus knows how to throw down in pound town. Can I get a HELL Yeah?! Y’all, I would beg this man to allow me the pleasure of hand washing his skivvies after cutting the grass at 3:00 pm on the hottest day in July. Lol Okay so maybe not really dirty laundry because TBH I have seven kids and do enough laundry, but I’m sure there are other ways I could lend a helping hand. 😏

Pretty Please with a Cherry on Top, any wish would be my command. Deacon just did it for me guys. 

This author writes the swooniest of heroes. So henceforth I shall refer to him as  “Deacon the Delicious.”  When you read this you will completely understand why. 

Never With Me is a stand-alone story told in alternating POV with elements of many different tropes. Fans of my best friend’s brother, age-gap, and small town. There is an instant connection and chemistry but we get to see the relationship build and grow as well. This book,   the setting, all the secondary characters kept me engaged and loving every minute.

I am really pumped because this book introduced us to Ramsey’s cousins,  the Kincaid brothers whose stories we will be getting in a new Kincaid Brothers Series, which will feature each of the nine brother’s in his own book. I AM SO EXCITED! Make sure you grab your copy of Never With Me today and fall in love with Ramsey, and Deacon. Get ready for a little kickstart introduction to the hotness that is the Kincaid boys. HAWT DAMN **fans self**

Fame Release Blast & Review

FAME

The final, breathtaking stand-alone in the Secrets in L.A. Series

I guess it’s naïve to say I thought I would be an actress.

But isn’t that why everyone comes to Los Angeles? Fame?

Then again, I’m from here.

And after years of paying my dues, all that fame and fortune was shoved at me with the promise of care for my family.

I’d grabbed for it without truly seeing what I was reaching for. Now I’m trapped in a role that owns my body and slowly steals pieces of my soul.

I wanted to be on camera . . . I never wanted this.

But when an intriguing stranger steps into my life, everything changes.

For the first time in so long, I feel alive—cherished and adored.

But as our stolen glances and secret smiles turn into shared nights and hidden passion, I know it’s only a matter of time before we fall apart.

Because he has no idea what I do for a living, and he works with my boss . . .

Now all my secrets are threatening to expose my deepest shame and ruin so much more than the façade I’ve fought to maintain.

My Review

My friends, FAME is FANTASTICALLY FABULOUS!! It’s MAGICALLY MARVELOUS!! I’m gonna calm down and stop yelling at you in shouty CAPS

But in all seriousness this book y’all. Molly McAdams once again proves why she is one of my absolute favorite authors. She is a must read everything she writes, plus owns every ebook, and signed paperbacks too. It doesn’t matter the genre or trope I know going in that with this author’s work I’m in for a story that will be profound and positively unforgettable. A story that is sure to weave itself through my mind, heart and soul and leave a little piece of itself behind. A story I felt so deeply that I will think back on it for years to come. As I still do with pretty much all of her books I have read thus far. (I will go to my death bed still feeling Taking Chances)

Trust me when I tell you Fame is a story like no other. Jensen and Mia are two imperfect humans who just happen to be perfect for each other. Bringing you the best by giving you a little taste of everything, this sinful and sexy romance is slap full of secrets, lies and mystery. Not skimping on the angst, steam, banter, tension, and a good ‘ol swoony and southern, Georgia bred country boy to come in and make everything all better  (this Georgia girl might be biased but there’s nothing hotter than a GA boy) I promise this book has something for every reader. It will captivate you from paragraph one until the very last sentence. Not just a book but an unputdownable journey to unite two amazingly unique and inspiring characters who against any obstacles that may come between them truly belong together. But what to do when love is inevitable between two people and one is dang near ready to sprint in the opposite direction away from it?  Will love bring them together or will Fame tear them apart? 

Mia is really a special character. She is one of the most unselfish of heroines I have ever had the pleasure of reading, yet her circumstances broke my heart over and over again. Her strength and dedication to her family was commendable. How could you not fall in love with her story? This amazing woman who sacrificially suffered for those she loved most in the world. It was devastating and inspiring at the same time. The internal conflicts are gut-wrenching. But I was so immersed in this story I really felt her struggle and found myself battling the what would I do in real life?

I think her battles with the life she was forced into and its impact on her character as a person just made me love her more. She was a deeply loving character but as much love as she had for others she didn’t have it for herself. I wanted to be able to jump into the book and just hug her and tell her I see you. You are beautiful and I see you for who you are. I see you for why and not what you have to do. She was existing, getting by and surviving. But she wasn’t living. She wasn’t enjoying her life. Until she met Jensen. He brought life back into her. He made her feel things no one ever had. It put the carefully crafted walls she’d put up to hide her secrets behind at risk of crumbling down around her. But for the first time she began to think she finally found someone who might be worth the risk. But there is still so much he doesn’t know about her. What will happen when the truth comes to light?

“You don’t know what my greatest joy is or the worst moments of my life. You don’t know what I’ve done to survive.”

Jensen is deliciously swoony and without a doubt book HUSBAND material. I say husband because this man is better than a book boyfriend. Boy oh boy was he ever hot and so dreamy too y’all. 

He had been burned in the past and that had an impact on him. He certainly wasn’t looking for a relationship, but he was instantly drawn to the beautiful yet emotionally barricaded girl from the third floor of his new office building. Quickly he finds himself unable to resist the need to get to know and win this woman over. He knows it will be no easy feat but not one to give up; he sets out to win her over. He’s just so stinking sweet. He is caring and thoughtful. Successful but humble. Supportive and protective. Loving and kind. Gah! The way he was with her melted me into a puddle of goo y’all! I was a pile of jelly for Jensen. I could go on about him FOREVER

None of that matters because I hear you in songs. I see you when I close my eyes. I feel you in my veins.”

In closing let me just say this book will tug on your heart strings. It will move you. You will laugh, and cry. You will fan yourself, get frustrated, cry again, and swoon so hard. You will fall so hard for all these characters (old and new). The writing is so engaging you feel like one of the gang, a part of the story.  So vividly you feel like you share in the outrage, the excitement, the urge to smack a fool upside the back of his head and tell him to get it together.  Mostly I just wanna see everyone get all the goodness life has to offer.  But alas, I cannot actually be a part of the story and that is just the mark of a truly talented author, the fact that they make you forget that you aren’t. This author does this to me. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME! 

Jensen and Mia’s breathtakingly remarkable journey is not one to be missed. It is the final standalone (with crossover characters) in the Secrets in L.A. series and told in dual POV. You can read the entire series for FREE in Kindle Unlimited. Go grab you some snacks, a drink and hold onto your taters because Fame is gonna take your heart on one heck of a rollercoaster of feelsEnjoy!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A Kingdom of Stars and Shadows Release Blitz & Review

AVAILABLE NOW

My Review

Hot Diggity Damn Y’all! There is not a genre or trope Author Holly Renee writes that I do not absolutely obsess over. No lie. I am convinced that she could write the ingredients on a menu advertising a double decker sardine and spam sandwich and I would be the first in line to devour that delicious delicacy. 

This may be this author’s first jump into the fantasy romance pool but she takes it on like Michael Phelps because that’s the kind of word wizard she is, and that is how much she pours herself into each and every project she takes on. BRILLIANT!!

The Kingdom of Stars and Shadows brings us the story of Adara and Evren. Adara, known as the Starblessed and Prince Evren, the non-crowned Prince. Adara has been betrothed since childhood to Prince Gavril, who also happens to be Evren’s brother. She is not happy about this arrangement and decides to do everything in her power to try to escape that fate. Her rebellious and fiery spirit is addictive and you can help but to fall for her. You root for her and your heart bleeds for her. You totally get the draw she has to Evren. This heroine is my kinda gal. Rebellious yet torn. An ass kicker with a heart of gold. Terrified of what’s to come but still so brave and bold. 

Evren is gorgeous and protective. He takes care of Adara in a way that only he can. He is the perfect mix of swoony and alpha. Protective and possessive. Bound by duty and loyalty to his father and brother, a force to be reckoned with. It is a deep struggle for him to watch his brother get closer to taking what he wants so badly. You will fall for him, be frustrated for him and most definitely be fanning yourself over him. He is all kinds of dirty talking, and sexy mysterious power and he will surprise you over and over again. He seems like such a loyal and faithful servant… But to whom is he most loyal?! 

Majestically magical and fabulously forbidden, this story is unique, unforgettably engaging and will have you hanging on every single second from the start until the suckerpunching cliffy at the end. I was left with questions lurking behind everything surrounding Evren. I always felt like I didn’t know everything going on. Like maybe as soon as I thought I had a handle on it I’d get another twist or curve thrown my way to kick things into another gear and I freaking love that feeling.

This is the kind of fantastical fantasy book I live to devour. It’s fascinating and exciting and leaves me giddy with anticipation for the next book, knowing I will get the answers I seek. I’m eager for more Evren, and oh so anxious for all the Adara. Make sure you dive into the dirty deliciousness that is this forbidden, and angsty story full of steam, action, twists, and loads of anger filled banter.  Remember…forbidden fruit always tastes the sweetest. 

I am going to darn near die of anticipation waiting for A Kingdom of Blood and Betrayal. Can one truly die of anticipation? I guess we shall see.  But either way it’s coming this fall y’all. So make sure you add it to your TBR and pre-order it today. FIVE FATED STARS   ⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨
