Blurb: Twelve years ago, our fates were sealed with a kiss.We are all, for better or worse, doomed to love each other until death do us part. My heart belongs to Proserpina and St. Sebastian—even if he no longer wants it. Even if she has left it behind to follow him.Delphine’s fled back home, and Becket’s holy calling is in peril.And now only Rebecca and I remain at Thornchapel to face the unknown.The door is open. The door that shouldn’t exist; the door that people have died to close. I don’t feel like the lord of the manor…I don’t feel like a king or a wild god. I am a friend and a boyfriend and a brother—and a failure at being all of these things. But the door doesn’t care about my guilt. It only cares about the sacrifice I’ll make to close it.As the bruising dark of Samhain approaches, so does the fate of our circle, of Thornchapel and the village and the valley beyond it. And I must don the crown, because one thing is still true, even if I must face it alone.Here at Thornchapel, the kings must go to the door.Here at Thornchapel, all kings must die.

My Review

I’m a conflict of emotions right now y’all! Door of Bruises is the fourth and final book in the Thornchapel Series. I couldn’t help wondering exactly what lied ahead for our beloved characters. I knew there was a chance that outcome that might not be what I would choose had left me concerned for months. So while I am so sad to see this series come to an end, I was left terrified at the end of Harvest of Sighs so I’m glad to have had my resolution. Yet, still now that it’s all over, I’m somewhat perplexed by my feelings. Ultimately I’m happy with the ending I got, but it’s not as it thought it would be. I was left with some unanswered questions, but that was to prove a point, so I get it. But Sierra Simone is known for her daring and non-typical approach to her stories and the ending and epilogue is what you get in Door of Bruises. I guess that is the better way to put it, it was anything by typical but honestly it needed to be this way. I have spun it in my mind so many times, I think it had to go the way it did. Ultimately for four books she was preparing us for this. 

Door of Bruises takes us back to Thornchapel. Back to this beautiful world Sierra Simone has created for us. A world where six uniquely different but inexplicably drawn to one another wonderful characters are. They find themselves called back to the rituals even their parents had been celebrating on the same land for years. Since the first book we have had more secrets, more lies and more kink than ever unfolding all to lead us here. Just when everyone has found their place and things seemed okay a secret door 🚪 appears and changed everything.

Now we find characters agonizing over what to do about the strange door that has appeared and curious over the other strange phenomena🥀🚪🤒☠️ that’s also starting happening in town surrounding Thornchapel. They are worried but have no choice but to batten down their hatches and try to find out all the information they can about what history says about the door, so they start scouring the library for answers.  I’m not gonna give anymore away I will just say, you will get everything you love with this series. Plus more! 

All the Sex, secrets, mystery, love, kink, heartache and forgiveness. It will bring you both pleasure and pain as you take this emotional journey with Beckett, Rebecca, Delphine, St.Sebastian, Proserpina and our pouty peacoat wearing Auden. Prepare to cry the last chapter or two, I know I sure did!! 

Sierra Simone is phenomenal. She gave us a perfect tale of love, lust, respect, kink and trust between these  friends that allows them to explore far beyond who they really are as just being friends. What an amazing collaboration of intriguing old tales, folklore and biblical stories all weaved together with her own storytelling and vision is just mind blowing. It blows me away with her brilliance. I’m literally awe struck. If you have read this series, START TODAY!! If you have then finish strong my friends. Five Weeping Rose Petal Stars ⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️🥀⭐️

Heat factor is OFF THE CHAIN 🔥🔥🔥🔥

You get MF;MMF;MFM; MM; FF combos of could it be any hotter?!?!

Blurb:I’ve been in hiding for four years. On the run from the man in whose bed I once slept. I saw something I shouldn’t have seen. Took something I shouldn’t have taken. And he’s just found me. But it’s not just my safety I have to worry about. I have a little boy. His little boy. The secret baby of a Russian mobster. He told me in no uncertain terms that I’m his. That we would be a family. But his uncle still wants me dead and I know the man who’s been hunting me is the only one who can keep us safe.

My Review

Oh Yes, friends! HIS  is book two of The Ties That Bind, a dark mafia romance duet from A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight. This amazing duo wrapped this up fantastically. I was not disappointed. This book is dark, angsty, and gritty. This will have you spinning from the very beginning, where it picks right up where Mine left us. 

Lev, Katerina and Josh are on the run. Their lives are at stake when Lev’s uncle sets out to serve up the ultimate revenge. Levka’s loyalties and priorities have seriously shifted since book one.  Now that he knows he has a son and his son’s mother, who he happens to love, to protect and he will do whatever it takes and destroy anyone who threatens what is his. He’s read to start a war! While assembling his team of allies secrets come to light that could change everything for Katya and Josh. When it’s all said and done, will he be able to take his family and walk away for this life for good? I love LEV!! 😍 I love how Katya and Josh changed this man! 

Katerina loves Lev,  but she doesn’t want to be a part of his world. She just wants to keep her son safe and that means she has to trust not only Lev but those he says to protect her and Josh. Not exactly an easy thing to do after the recent events that sent them running. Katerina has many secrets surrounding her that date way back to her childhood, some she is aware of some she is not. As those begin to unravel she becomes even more unsure of what to do. I have a serious girl crush on her character! ♥️She is feisty, beautiful, strong and hardheaded, but unfortunately those same traits could turn out to be her downfall. 

With the introduction of even more amazing characters, this incredible story will keep you reeling. Gripping the edge of your seat, and flipping the pages as fast as you can read them to see what happens next! Pick up this phenomenal duet today!

AVAILABLE NOW!!Amazon: https://amzn.to/2yBa0e7Apple: https://apple.co/2OFjU43Nook: http://bit.ly/35Uy5rsKobo: http://bit.ly/2Y5t78N

Blurb:Some secrets are better left buried…Stuck between life and death, Mackenzie is hell-bent on proving her innocence, and getting revenge on the men who murdered her sister. With one series of unfortunate events after another, Mackenzie must outrun her own fate—death.When secrets unravel and lies become twisted betrayals, Mackenzie finds herself in more danger than she could’ve realized. Her only saving grace is Baz, the elusive playboy she’s given her heart to. But will placing her trust in a man like Baz be her downfall?

My Review

OH-MY-HOLY-HADES!! Y’all! My heart, My head. I’m all over the flippin place. This conclusion was EVERYTHING!  S.M.Soto is a master craftsman when it comes to serving up emotional literary beatings. This conclusion was all that I was hoping for, yet I was blindsided so many times over with twists and turns. I couldn’t have seen them coming with binoculars, Y’all! Everything about Baz and Mackenzie’s love story was Astonishing! 

“Our love was unexpected—a chaotic blend of messy and beautiful.”

Mackenzie is back and more ready than ever to get to the bottom of the truth. But just how far is she willing to go. When she starts to unfold more and more secrets, She doesn’t know who to trust. Putting her trust in the wrong person could be catastrophic for her. Struggling with the battle between her head and her heart she’s not sure if Baz is with her or against her. 

“His hold on my heart is eternal.”

She knows she loves him, but she’s torn and needs to protect herself while still getting justice for Madison. When Madison’s secrets start coming to light will Mackenzie finally let it all go and just let the lies stay buried? 

Baz can’t trust Mackenzie, but he’s got conflicting information coming at him from every direction. No matter what he makes it his mission to protect her because no one’s gonna hurt his “Dirty Girl” Baz sets out on a mission of his own, punish those who dared to touch what was his. Baz has deep feelings for Mack but he’s hiding his true feelings from her, just like she’s trying to do from him. Their banter back and forth is heated and hot and from one minute to the next you don’t know if they’re about to go off on each other and or go to bed together. 

“Because where there is hate, there is love.”

This conclusion will keep you on the edge of your seat. I stayed breathless for most of this book, gasping over and over again. I’m in awe and the amount of suspenseful greatness S.M. Soto stuffed into this phenomenal book. It was unpredictable and unexpected from chapter to chapter and I loved every second. Every jaw dropping, heart stopping, wanna throw my kindle across the room moment! 

This is a MUST READ DUET! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- This duet will go down as one of my favorites of all time. The twist and turns, the and suspense, the heat and banter between these characters is unreal! There were so many things that literally knocked me for a loop. It was just that good y’all! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-There is nothing hotter than two people that try like hell to resist each other, then finally give in. Especially when your guy is dominant AF!I would sign up any time of any day to be Baz’s Dirty Girl, just sayin’ !! 🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger this time!!I’m so happy with the way this ended!  #PerfectlyHappyEnding!😍
