Jackson Release Blitz & Review

Jackson - RB banner

“Another impressive hit from Davis; nothing short of what I expect and love from her works!”

S.E. Hall, New York Times bestselling author

Jackson, an all-new standalone dark romance in the fan-favorite Rydeville Elite Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!

Jackson_ecover2 Book 5

The devil came to me in disguise. Too bad I didn’t notice until it was far too late.

Vanessa:

The devil doesn’t always wear an evil mask.

Sometimes, he appears in the most beautiful form.

Like the super-hot bad boy with the dirty-blond hair and a wicked glint in his blue eyes who swept in out of nowhere, stealing all the air from my lungs.

I thought he was my savior.

But he’s my ruination.

And he’s just taken a machete to my heart.

Jackson:

For years, my rage seethed under the surface. Hidden behind a cloudy haze of my poison of choice.

But now, the fog has cleared.

And I’m out for blood.

I will annihilate those responsible for taking my sister from me.

Except he’s not here, so I go for the next best target.

The woman he abandoned.

Until it suited him to drag her into this messed-up elite world.

Sucks to be her.

Because when I’m done with Vanessa, she’ll wish she was dead.

My Review

Oh!! Holy Hells Yes!! This book, my friends!! This AMAZINGLY PHENOMENAL Book was exactly what I thought it would be and then some. I knew Siobhan was gonna slay Jackson’s book. TBH I have been salivating for him since day.freakin.one when I met him back in Cruel Intentions. I am mentally spent after this book, though in the best way. This is the best kind of book hangover, y’all! I laughed, I cried, I swooned and I swore. It was a marathon of emotions. One that I would gladly run again and again. (I tend to do re-reads of the Rydeville Elite Series b/c It’s so dang addictive) 

Jackson’s character is legit everything I knew he was gonna be multiplied by 1000! From the beginning he had a mission, a goal and nothing was gonna deter him from that. He was ruthless, a jerk, gorgeously hot, but he was also caring as well. He has a big heart, he just tries to hide that fact. We’ve all loved the playful playboy since day one, but here we get to see a different side with this more adult version of Jackson.  I think we all knew it was gonna take one heck of a girl to bring that boy to his knees and Vanessa “Nessa” sure is the one to do it. 

Jackson - AN

She was smokin hot, sweet, but she was so strong. The resilience in this character, y’all. It makes me tear up just thinking about it. In many ways she was broken, but not beyond repair. The strength she showed about how rise from the ashes was inspiring. My heart broke over and over again. I wanted for her to get everything good in this world and I wanted Jackson to give it to her. But I wasn’t sure if it was possible, they had so much working against them. 

Now, with that said… Their journey was by no means an easy one. But it was a tragically beautiful one. Their connection was spectacular and off the charts of the “meant to be scale.” I felt like she brought out the best parts of Jackson, and he was able to give her all the things she was missing in her life. Not necessarily just monetary things but the things that truly matter. GAH!  This story gutted me, before it put me back together. But I loved every single second.That’s not to say I didn’t have several moments of wanting to bash my kindle over the heads of several characters at many different times. But… I was obsessed with every word on every page, from start to finish! It.was.that.fantastic!! 

Nessa and Jackson’s story is one for the books and MUST not be missed! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️-EVERYTHING!Jackson’s book was it. Everything I was yes and So.Much.More! Their spectacular journey has it all. Love, lies, suspense, thrills, so much heat, forgiveness,  and all your favorites back together again! YES PLEASE! 🖤♥️🖤♥️

🔥🔥🔥🔥- I’m not sure there are adequate words to describe the level of hotness the book is. Message and Jackson are next level. Siobhan writes these sexy scenes full of such delicious details you legit feel like you are there, almost as a voyeur. It’s beyond hot and makes for a super smokin read! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning🌪- I AM IN LOVE WITH THE ENDING!! 😍😍

🔫 Trigger Warning-This book is a Bully/Gang romance and does have some violent scenes, and scenes that discuss disturbing memories for one of our characters that could be considered triggers for some. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

Like You Care Release Blitz & Review

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Like You Care by Kaydence Snow is LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

“Gripping is an understatement when it comes to this book. From start to finish this book is an emotional roller coaster that keeps you captivated. I ugly cried, I raged, I cheered so freaking hard for both Mena and Turner it’s not even funny.” ~Red Hatter Book Blog

I am nothing.

Nobody.

I’d rather be invisible than deal with what happens on the days my classmates decide to acknowledge my existence.

But then Turner Hall shows up – all cool confidence and witty banter – and all of a sudden I don’t want to be invisible any more. I want to be seen.

I want him to see me.

I’m not who he thinks I am but I’m starting to suspect he’s not all he says he is either.

Just my luck that he starts to make friends with my tormentors. How am I supposed to tell him who I really am? How am I supposed to show him my true face? What if the boy I’m falling in love with decides I’m nothing too?

My Review

Oh my heart!! I’ve got a girl crush! Y’all I love Mena! This character is amazing. I can’t even imagine all this poor girl went though. Oh the tears I shed for her, but she was surviving the best way she could. By being invisible. She got stronger as the book went on in my opinion. 

When Turner moved in next door I just loved how she was able to be with him, it was behind a screen but she was a fun and normal teenager with a crush and the connection between them made my heart flutter with emotion. 

This book was full of  hope and love, heartbreak, and some elements of acceptance. I loved Mena and Turner together. The book itself was an easy read and flowed well. I read it super quick. There were some surprising elements to it. This was my first book by Kaydence Snow but I will definitely read her again!

My Review



Holy Hell Y’all! I loved every single freaking second of this book. Wren and Elodie’s story was Ah-May-Zing! I’m still trying to wrap all my thoughts around all the feelings this book threw my way, but I am all in on this new world and all about these Riot House boys, Callie Hart, has created. I want, I need, NO  I absolutely can’t wait to have more from this world. Wren Jacobi the dark, devious Raven loving painter and Elodie, his ass kickin’ heroine with a tragic past have stolen my heart, broken my heart, and then mended my heart right along with their own. THIS is the kind of bully romance that does it for me, and Callie Hart,  did it oh so good! 

This phenomenal book was an explosion of everything awesome out of every genre I love. So much more than I thought I was going to get when I started this “bully romance.” I plowed through this book in record time, I practically ignored all else in my life. It’s that good, my friends. I can’t wait for more in this series.

These characters are PHENOMENAL!💀💀 The ones you instantly loved and the ones we instantly hated, that I just know we are gonna love done the road. GAH!  I need more, like yesterday. 🙏🏻

My Review

This book crushed my soul before it put me back together. 😭 Every single feeling I have was obliterated before this book was done. But I couldn’t stop reading it! I had to know what was going to happen, from page to page. The twists, the angst, the moments of pure despair. The sensual and sweet and funny and lighthearted. All of it! I never wanted it to end ,but I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see how it ended! GAH! 

This is the story of Donovan, Grey and Liam. Three rich best friends from elite and powerful families who’s friendship will be tested in the ultimate way. One beautiful girl, two gorgeous guys, both different in many ways, but also the same in their life’s mission to protect love and care for her. She loves them both,  but only one can truly hold all of her heart, and the other will be left standing with his heart in his hand. There is only one that can and will be able to truly own her mind, body, heart and soul. Which one will it be Grey McCallister or Liam Brooks? 

“First, Last and Only! “

Grey and Liam are two best friends as close as brothers. They are always number one and two. They will do anything and give up anything for the other, except when it comes to Donovan. For the first time in their lives they each found something he wasn’t willing to sacrifice for his best friend. They both also knew ultimately who was the best man for her, but would the other step aside and let “him” be the one to go after her? 

“Every girl has one—the crush who set the standard. I just have two.”

The struggling was real y’all and raw and oh my gosh. My heart felt it every time one lashed out in hurt or punishment towards another. I felt it down to my bones. That’s how much I fell for these characters. There are places where you feel like it’s slice after slice to an artery and just when you think you couldn’t possibly bleed more. Trilina patches you back up all perfectly in the end. I promise these characters are gonna stick with you long after you have clicked that Kindle off. 

I refuse to give anything specific details of this story away because to do so would be such a disservice to both this brilliant author and to you the reader. It is sure to be one of my top reads this year. This was my first read by Trilina Pucci and I’m amazed and awed by her attention to every single detail and emotion she was able to capture in the book and evoke in me as a reader. While this may have been my first read of hers I can assure you this will not be my last. If you are fans of friends-to-lovers/Love triangles with a touch of bully romance, and you also happen to love twists, angst, frustration and shockingly frustrating moments. This is the book for you! 

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- This book had me from paragraph one. I was unable to put this book down. I was in it y’all. I had to know what was going to happen, how this would play out. My heart needed to know. My poor feels needed to know. I FLOVE VAN, GREY, AND LIAM! ! This is so much bigger than a Five Star Read. 👆🏻(See that extra star) 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-As far as actual,  get full on busy it’s a slow burn with tons of licious tension! There is one scene fairly early that is holy hella hot!! But then you have to wait a minute for another BUT it’s so worth the wait! Good gracious is it with it!Hot dang! 🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! After you are turned upside down and inside out and every which a way around you get a HEA Ending!

Blurb:
I only had one rule: don’t fall in love with the cruel prince.

I broke it.

When the clock struck twelve, I went back to being a servant. He promised to let me go with my heart in pieces…but Grayson Crowne was always king at breaking promises.

I refuse to let him lock me in a tower.

I have no choice but to take the only out offered to me–another cruel prince.

Refuge in a man I loathe.

Rescued from the man I love.

I wanted to forget Grayson, forget Crowne Hall, and hide, but fate has other plans.

But if Grayson and I are fated, then our fate is forbidden.

Our happily ever after will only end one way…in heartbreak.

 

 

About the Author:
I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

EXCERPT

“Why do you hate me so much?” If you do, why the hell are you engaged to me?“Might have to do with how much of a bitch you are.”“Oh, I’m sorry.” I smile. “Did I steal your title, asshole?”He pauses, head tilting to the side. “What did you just call me?”“A-S-S-H-O-L-E.” I continue smiling, taunting him. “Do you want me to spell it for you again—”My words cut off when he’s at my face, kneeling on the bed in front of me. His hand wraps around my throat like a shackle. He’s not squeezing, but the firm grip is enough to restrict my air supply and my thoughts.A frightening chill forms goose bumps along my skin as I stare at his darkened, merciless eyes.The sense of bravery I gained a few seconds ago evaporates into thin air. My shoulder blades snap together as if telling me I should be scared.This is a scary person.He’s fucking terrifying.The need to run away from him hits me again, clawing under my skin and pumping in my blood.“You seem to be taking your amnesia game way too seriously, so let me remind you of how it goes.” His thumb rubs my jaw like a lover’s caress when in fact it’s a Grim Reaper’s kiss.It’s cold.Everything about him is freezing.My pulse roars in my ears like a distant thunderstorm.He’s invading my space like a natural disaster, impossible to stop or prevent.Still, I manage to choke words out. “You think this is a game? What type of person pretends to have lost their memories?”“The type who doesn’t want people to know what they’ve done.”“What I’ve done?”“Shhh. Don’t talk.” He presses his thumb to my lips, and I can’t help the pulses taking flight under my skin. “When I speak, you listen.”

My Review

Yes, Yes, Yes!! Twisted, Astonishing, Unputdownable! This book will take everything you think you know about bully romance and knock you on your fanny! Nothing about this book was predictable. NOTHING! From the start I was on the edge of my seat. This book was slap full of insane, intriguing and the most mind-bendingly mysterious moments.

Forget adulting or anything else from the moment you start because I assure you… You.Won’t.Stop.Until.It’s.Done!! Then you will continue to check and scream out in frustration to see if more pages will magically appear!!

Reina is unexpected, she is a contradiction to everything you expect and you can’t help but to feel every emotion she is as she is going through it. The frustration she’s enduring as she discovered who she was through the eyes of others. Wow! Just Wow! That’s all I can and will give you. 😘 It leaves you feeling as perplexed as she is, you love and hate her as much as she does herself! I happen to love complex characters like herself and love the brilliance Rina displays when writing them! 🙌🏻 Ah-May-Zing!

Asher is the hot, popular, angry playboy. But something had to contribute to that deep rooted anger right? The way he acts towards his fiancé is confusing and frustrating, but it’s also hot, and sometimes scary. I love the mystery surrounding what’s driving him. He is baffled at times by Reina’s behavior but doesn’t trust her for anything. I’m so excited to see what’s coming in book two. Like I’m dying for this conclusion y’all!

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐-  Rina Kent is the dark and mysterious queen. She never fails to deliver something that will leave us gasping for more. I was captivated and spent from a myriad of emotions this book ran me through, and I loved every heart dropping moment! I don’t know how I will make it until the next book. I need the conclusion, it’s like an obsession at this point. Lol 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-There is nothing extremely off the chain hotter than some Hate Sex!! 🔥 am I right?!?! Yup, so HOTT! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 TOTAL Cliffhanger! This is a duet and you WILL NOT reach resolution in this book!!

The Punk and the Plaything by B.B. Reid

Release Date: December 9, 2019

Punk Cover.jpg

The Punk and The Plaything, the third romantic standalone in the When Rivals Play series by B.B. Reid.

Never trust a nice ass and a smile. That girl is definitely poison.

When I first came to Blackwood Keep, I was just looking for a thrill.

Instead, I found a beautiful fraud—a tomboy my wildest dreams couldn’t conjure.

Bee didn’t just run with boys; she ran the boys. It was only a matter of time before I gave chase.

It took one summer for me to win her over and two to lose her forever.

My summer love turned ice queen. Without heart or thought, she ruined me.

Four years and an ocean between us, I still can’t forget that she chose my cousin…so I won’t.

My Review

So B.B. had totally it set up in the other books where I was absolutely, unequivocally NOT a Barbette ”Bee” fan. I would go as far as to say I despised her character. I didn’t like her friendship with Ever, I didn’t trust her, just didn’t care for her. I started opening up to her  a little in TMATF, but still. Now… I absolutely love, like fist pumps in the air rooting for her, she’s my new BFF. I’m a “Bee-liever”!

Gah!! Jamie, oh Jamie! His character has been one of my tops from day one. There is something about him. His playful personality, that don’t GAF attitude he puts off, when really he’s one of the most caring people out there. He’s giving off this players vibe and he’s borderline cruel to Bee,  but really he’s just protective of his heart and sweet gooey center, afraid he will be exposed to hurt and risk heartbreak again if he lets his guard down. 

“You kiss me with your cruel words and caress me with your pain.”

Told in alternating POV’s we go back and forth between their senior year of high school and their pre-teen years. We get in-depth looks into the what let Jamie and Bee to be the characters they are today. 

“It’s not your hate that kills me but the love I see shining through.”

It also gives us better understanding why Jamie feels the way he does, and we understand what it was like for Bette growing up and what led to some of the decisions that she and Ever made and why Four would have went along with them. We get to see the story of Jamie and Bee childhood friends falling in love and the hurts, secrets, misunderstandings and devastation that come after. BEE AND JAMIE ARE EVERYTHING! 

While I’m not going to give away any of the details of this book because #SpoilersSuck. I will say I’m pretty sure this one might be my favorite of all. Because…Jamie! Tattoos, piercings, attitude and heart. I mean hot dang, y’all! And Bee, she’s beautiful and sassy and sweet. She’s loving and as it turns out unselfish. This is one of my most favorite series. I cannot recommend it enough. If you haven’t started it. TODAY IS THE DAY! Pick up this Bully/Friends to Lovers Favorite. I would give it all the stars in the sky if I could. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️- I have to add a sixth star for my blog rating cause I just gotta! This is like a Bully/ Friends to lovers romance all in one! Jamie is legit! He’s the most perfect book boyfriend. Tattoos and piercings. He’s just delicious! Plus all your favorite characters are back! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Holy Hades!!Jamie and Bee are pure fire in the sheets! 🧨 Nuff said💥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! IFloved this!! #Perfection

Blog tour teaser.jpg

Excerpt: “Well, isn’t this the most delicious surprise.” My head confirmed what my eyes were showing me, but my stubborn heart still refused to believe. Jamie was back from Ireland? Why hadn’t Ever told me? Neither of those answers seemed to matter as much as why Jamie was back.

The short sleeves of the button up he wore were rolled and bunched at the shoulders, displaying the muscles he’d grown since I’d last seen him four years ago. The white cotton only pronounced his tanned skin. He’d left the buttons undone, allowing anyone who laid eyes on him to see his hard chest and defined abs…and the many tattoos that covered them. Most of them were angry and aggressive, almost scary as if he were showing off his demons for anyone to see. Recalling my sweet Jamie from long ago, and what happened the last time I’d seen him, I knew I was responsible for every one of them. Gone was the gentle boy next door with a full mop of hair, a lanky body, and an easy smile. This boy standing before me was darker, edgier…more tragic to my lonely, fragile heart. Was that yearning burning in the pit of my stomach or fear of the unknown? Because I didn’t know this Jamie, and judging by the wicked gleam in his eyes as he flashed that mocking grin, I didn’t want to know. “What the hell are you doing back here?” “Is that any way to greet your first love? I got to say”—his gaze slowly traced every dip and curve of my body—“I love how well you’ve grown up, Bette.” “First love?” I scoffed, even though it felt like he’d stolen my breath. “You were hardly that.” “Then what was I?” he challenged, backing me against the opposite wall. “I’m breathless to hear more of your lies.”

“You were nothing.” He flashed me that sad, beautiful smile I hadn’t realized I’d missed so much. I stood perfectly still as his wolfish gaze ate me up. As close as he stood now, he wouldn’t miss a single fucking flaw. There were many, but no one dared looked close enough to see. I might as well have been Medusa. As he ran his gaze over me, I took the time to study him as well, noting the silver bar piercing his right brow and the small diamond in his right nostril. I could have sworn I’d even glimpse a flash of metal piercing his nipples. Jamie had taken all that sinful deliciousness he naturally possessed and multiplied it by ten thousand. As if the world didn’t already have enough injustices. “You’re so beautiful. Did it hurt?” He kept his gaze on me as he turned his head and blew out smoke. “Did what hurt?” I could feel the heat from Jamie’s cigarette when he defiantly brushed his thumb across my bottom lip. To Jamie’s knowledge, I belonged to his cousin now, but he clearly didn’t give a damn. “When you fell from heaven, Satan.” I slapped his hand away while telling myself to get a grip. Jamie might have surprised me, but he was nothing I couldn’t handle. “Get lost, Jameson.” Tapping the end of his cigarette, he sprinkled ash onto my designer blouse. A piece of the flame had fallen, burning through the sheer material, scorching my skin. Before now, I’d never thought Jamie capable of hurting me. The truth was now so blatantly blazed into our history that it could never be unwritten. Without warning, he pressed closer until I could see nothing but the angry blackness of his eyes. “I’m afraid I’m not going anywhere. By the time I’m done with you, Barbette Montgomery, you’ll be crawling back to me… but I doubt I’ll want my cousin’s sloppy thirds.”

“I wouldn’t hold your breath.” I wasted little time pushing him away. Tragically, the moment my hand connected with his warm skin, the electricity threatening to make my broken heart beat again became too obvious to ignore. I tried to run from it, but some inexplicable need to seal our fate had me spinning on my heel to face him again. “Better yet, Jameson, do us both the favor, won’t you?”
