Heroin Stained Hearts Release & Review




Title: Heroin Stained Hearts
Series: In Vein #3
Author: C.M. Radcliff
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: April 22, 2021

BLURB
After a terrifying health scare, Ander is finally getting the help he needs.

He’s running out of options and needs the treatment.
The only thing is, he hasn’t been honest with Hadley.
One truth leads to a cascade of events that all circle back to one thing… Ander’s addiction.

Life is never easy and the road to recovery is paved with shattered glass.
Hadley’s in love with an addict that harbors more secrets than Pandora’s Box.
Ander is in love with the girl that deserves more than he can give her.

Their love was built on a mountain of lies and broken promises.
When it all comes crashing down, will their love survive?
Or will they finally fall apart?

My Review

Ander and Hadley are back. Breaking hearts and each other’s spirits with the beautiful inevitably toxic love they share. This poor couple is the absolute epitome of the addict and the enabler that will love them into the grave. They both are so irrevocably in love with each other.

But ultimately Ander can’t change who he is and what he does just because of Hadley. If her love was enough he would do it for her in a heartbeat, but Anders’ problems are big. But Hadley knows deep down that she can just love him better, she knows she can’t keep enabling him. It’s gonna hurt and take some huge sacrifice on her part because she just can’t stay in this world of worry and stress with him. But… Has he finally broken his last straw?

This book, like the others in the series, is emotional and raw. It’s so gut wrenching and real at it’s core you can help but to be swept away into Hadley and Anders’ story. To sympathize with everyone who has ever loved someone so much that they have found themselves in a continuous loop like we see here with Ander and Hadley. Their story is devastated and deep and raw and frustrating. But it’s so REAL y’all! There are couples out there like our Ander and Hadley right now and they don’t survive. So I can’t wait for book four. They have such deep strength and love that they pull from one another. Hardly is so much stronger than she knows and if anyone can be the incentive to make him get clean forever it’s her. I just hope it works. 

Please read this delicious angst fest. You will be on the edge the entire time. This book is all highs and lows for our characters and all of it is magnificent writing. Get it today!!

Make You Beg Release Blitz & Review

“Deliciously dark, steamy, and full of suspenseful twists and turns, this book kept me up ALL NIGHT. ” Siobhan Davis. USA Today bestselling author

Make You Beg, a dark bully romance standalone from bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!

To the world, she’s known as Henley Greene.
To me, she’s a little doll— a toy to be played with and tossed to the side once no longer wanted.
She will pay for her betrayal however I deem necessary.

Imagine living in a constant nightmare where you have no control. Running from someone or something, you can hear him getting closer and feel his breath on your neck. You know that no matter what you do, he’s going to get you.
He will win.
But I don’t have just one. I have four.
Ryan Scout, Van Rellik, Dax Monroe, and Grayson Law are the Reapers of Westbrook High, my ex-best friends, and now my biggest enemies. They run the school and own this town. They want nothing more than to make me pay for what I saw that night at Death Valley. A sick and twisted game that leaves me dirty and bruised with torn clothing.
So how did I fall in love with one?
I was raised to fear the dark side, but he showed me it was in the dark where the truth came to light. He played with me until my body craved his touch. I was going to prove I could be his most trusted servant in every form of the word. Whether kneeling before him or lying on my back, my sole purpose in life was to be his.
But when you’re a toy everyone likes to play with, you’re bound to end up broken.

Make You Beg: A Dark Bully Romance was previously published in the Bully Me: Class of 2020 Anthology but has now been reworked and expanded into a new full-length story.

MY REVIEW

Holy Sh-Wait What in the World?!!!

This book is amazing beyond my ability to convey with enough words. Make You Beg by Shantel Tessier was all consuming and addictive. It drew me into this intriguing dark, and dangerous world that Shantel created and I never WANTED TO LEAVE.

GAH!! What a sexy and twisted mind trip. So many times I probably should have been like “what in tarnations is happening?” But these scenes grabbed a hold of me more.

This book will have you guessing from moment to fast paced moment. I had theories upon theories running through my head about what might be around the next corner. Yet, it still had my jaw dropping each and every time. Shantel absolutely swept the rug out from underneath this girls feet and I freakin loved it!! 

If you love all the sexy, dark, dangerous, and deliciously mysterious. GRAB THIS BOOK!! 

This is the bully romance you MUST NOT MISS! 

I really can’t say anything about what happens or anything about the characters personalities because I won’t deprive you of this experience. It was truly an unforgettable reading experience. It read like a movie with such vivid details I saw every sight, smelled every smell and my heart sped up, grew cold, and broke right along with these characters.  This book was hot and sexy, it was cold and calculating, it was unexpectedly shocking and it.was.perfect. I am OBSESSED! I would do anything for some more from this world. It’s phenomenal! 

Infinite number of stars for this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Be ready to fan yourself because OMG the heat🔥🔥🔥🔥

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.”

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’.

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪There is a cliffy. This is a series so if you are not okay with cliffs I would wait, otherwise jump in and enjoy.

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.

Blurb:
Winston Constantine is no prince charming…
I crave him so badly I think I might be losing my mind. He’s right in front of me, but he’s just as remote as my dreams of getting away from my stepbrothers. I keep playing his twisted games, and I want to stay just as distant as he is. But I can’t. I never could. I’ve fallen for him. Hopelessly. Irrevocably.
But Winston isn’t a lover, he’s a business venture.
A way for me to pay for college.
A ticket out.
He’s never pretended to be anything other than that.
I can’t blame him for making me fall in love.
There can be no happily ever after between a maid and a prince, no matter what the stories say.

Blurb:
The Devil comes with baggage, and not the kind you can lose. I was two years old when he saved me. I didn’t understand much at that age, but I remember the pale boy with hair as dark as ink, saving me from two evils. He said he would protect me; I just didn’t know he meant from himself. I was raised in the arms of evil, tailored for the Devil like a custom Armani suit, and every day he wore it like a weapon. Brantley thought by keeping me locked in his manor that it would protect me, and it did.

Until it didn’t.

As I slowly adapt to The Elite Kings Club and the dark, sinister world that exists around the outlaws in suits, I come to learn that the monster everyone fears is the very same one I crave.

Like a prized trophy, I sit on his throne…
Something quite pretty, an object he owns…

She’s a porcelain doll, so shiny, so clean…
Something I want to polish, but to never be seen…

The time has come, I am in his world…
Now his Dea, can be admired by all…

The thing with porcelain is it’s fragile and delicate…
It would only take a second for me to eradicate it…

Sound of Madness Review


🖤🖤  𝐇𝐎𝐓 𝐍𝐄𝐖 𝐑𝐄𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐄 🖤🖤

Sound of Madness, Book Two of Maria Luis’s Broken Crown Trilogy, is LIVE! 

BLURB

He is my ruin.
My complete and utter devastation.

Loyalty or death.
I make my choice in a palace of flames, and wake to total darkness . . .

And at his mercy.

Calloused hands bring hell to my door and his velvet voice spews only poison.

“A traitor to the queen,” he calls me, and though I don’t know his name, it’s clear that he’s no Prince Charming.

Monster.
Villain.
A man who demands that I take it all—and submit.

But no one will ever mistake me for a damsel in distress.

He wants me on my knees, but it won’t be me who breaks.

Only, falling for the most hated man in England was not the plan.

If war is hell, then love is carnage, and the blood that’s spilled belongs to us both.

My Review

I am so NOT okay. SOM has caused some major tear shedding for me. Damien and Rowana are most definitely my favorite characters so far, and that says a lot because I didn’t think anyone could steal my heart from Saxon and Isla. These two characters have touched me in a way that I won’t soon forget. As a matter of fact I know I will be thinking of them in the days and weeks to come. Their story was raw and visceral at its core. The characters flawed, complex and that just made it gut-wrenching and my Damien and Rowan imperfectly perfect in my eyes.  I wanted nothing more than to be transported into this amazing fictional world Maria Luis created and see how I fared when I joined the alliance I most certainly would have aligned with, because I love them so! 

Damien and Rowena are absolutely hands down my favorite characters in this series. Both of these beautiful characters were no strangers to tragedy, the world around intent on breaking them but they remained the picture, the embodiment of perseverance. I’m not going to give away any specifics because #SpoilersSuck, but their journey has touched me in ways that I will never be the same. 

“Broken, but never defeated,”

They have clawed, chewed, scratched and fought for their version of redemption. Redemption and strength beyond comprehension when you look at all they have endured, found because they found each other. Both flawed and scarred by their past found acceptance and love on one another. They found strength to go on when they wanted to lay down and give in. The kind of strength that comes from finding the other half of your soul. That person willing to breach the gates of hell and duke it out with the devil himself, with no regard for their own self, just to rescue the other from a fate such a death. GAH!! The tears and the begging I did for these two. My heart splintered over and over again, because the odds were continuously stacked against them.

“I wanted to live”…“but never could I have predicted you.”…“I wanted happiness and you drove away the darkness.”

Will Damien and Rowena be able to overcome all the obstacles they have in their way to have a chance at being together and finding freedom from the shackles that have bound them to the darkness once and for all?Well… you will have to read to find out. So grab some wine, tissues, chocolate and a blanket and settle in for this unforgettable, unputdownable second book on the Broken Crown Trilogy. I’m already super anticipating book three. 

Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️- MY HEART!! This book O-M-G.. Action, secrets , suspense, angst, hot sexy times, so much heart, banter, blood and sweat, tears, fight scenes, forgiveness, revenge, and frustration, lies on top of lies! These characters have my heart. FOREVER. Their growth together and separate was phenomenal. These characters are LIFE!💀💀! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Holy Hades Y’all!! Damien and Rowena were hurt and healing perfection! Damien was alpha AF and Rowena took everything he had to give and gave back when he needed it. This was sexy, dirty, raw, and rough love makin’. There are melted hearts, panties and kindles all across the world because of this book. (Maria’s not even sorry either y’all) 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪There is a storyline cliffy,  but our beautiful couple get an ending I was happy with! 😍

🔫 Trigger Warning-This book is a Dark romance feel and does have violent scenes that could be considered triggers for some. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

★ Road to Fire BLURB ★

“𝐈’𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮.”

𝐈 𝐦𝐞𝐞𝐭 𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐠𝐚𝐳𝐞. “𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.

Spy.

Defender of the Crown.

To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.

And then 𝑠ℎ𝑒 appears.

Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to bus tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.

“Hire me,” she begs.

𝐖𝐞’𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐚𝐫. 𝐄𝐧𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭.

Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.

Savage.

Ruthless.

A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.

And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “𝑰 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒖𝒔𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖.”

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.

Stroke of Midnight Blog Tour & Review



Stroke of Midnight by K Webster is now live! 

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a brand new forbidden romance that’s going to leave you speechless.
Money can buy anything. And anyone.
As the head of the Constantine family, I’m used to people bowing to my will. Cruel, rigid, unyielding–I’m all those things.
When I discover the one woman who doesn’t wither under my gaze, but instead smiles right back at me, I’m intrigued. Ash Elliott needs cash, and I make her trade in crudeness and degradation for it.
I crave her tears, her moans, her submission. I pay for each one. And every time, she comes back for more.
When she challenges me with an offer of her own, I have to decide if I’m willing to give her far more than cold hard cash. But love can have deadly consequences when it comes from a Constantine. At the stroke of midnight, that choice may be lost for both of us.

My Review

I certainly won’t be reading my kids this flippin’ fairytale. But this momma sure loved this bedtime story. This Cinderella-ish like story is captivating and naughty. It’s an oh so devishly dirty and delicious age-gap romance and is perfection in the most alpha and erotic ways.

Winston, the charming and gorgeously irresistible villain and Ash Elliott who he has so appropriately named his “Cinderelliott.” It’s not a dirty rags to riches story, it’s a coming into your own with your perfectly filthy perverse partner. It’s about discovery and acceptance of just how deep your desires run and being okay with the lengths in which you will go to give into them.

You will be instantly allured by Ash and her foul mouthed fairy god daddy as they come up with a taboo and deviant arrangement that works out to be mutually beneficial for both of them. I enjoyed every second of reading how they worked out the kinks in their arrangement as they went along. 😏

Ash and Winny will test their boundaries, toe the lines of what some of society would consider morally acceptable, at least in their circles and in the end others may hold their desires over their heads. In the beginning this was an agreement with no feelings involved, but will that remain true the longer they’re involved?  Just how far will they go to protect each other? 

The entire cast of secondary characters, from Winson’s brother Perry,  Ash’s dad, step-mom, and horrible triplet step brothers, and most of all Shrimp, my favorite bird ever!! All make this book unpredictable, unputdownable, and unforgettable. 

This book has so much going on with our fierce and feisty heroine Ash  to the alphahole Winston. You will run the gamut of emotions. It’s so hot, and frustrating. It’s devastating and enraging. One minute my heart is all ooey gooey and the next I’m all raged. It.Was.Awesome.lol Dang that Cliffy though! You still must read it!! ⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️

Don’t say I didn’t, say I didn’t warn ya!!  🖤

Excerpt

I don’t want to clean. 

I want to sit behind a desk and crunch numbers. Talk shop. Plan expansions. My dad is an economic analyst, which is what I want to be too. I’d always imagined us going into business together and heading up our own firm. 

Cleaning won’t get me there. 

I suppose playing nice with Manda the Maneater is my only resort at this point. 

For the next hour, I rush through all the offices that don’t need much more than the trash cans emptied, and then make it to the CEO’s office. One day, I’ll have an office like Winston Constantine, but I won’t be some old fuddy duddy. I’ll be a boss babe with style. My employees will love me, because I imagine I’ll be cool as hell. Rather than hire a boring interior designer like whatever robot chose the furniture and décor for Halcyon, I’ll do it all myself.

 I’m once again daydreaming of my future that seems more and more murky these days as I fumble through my email on my phone to find the code to get into Big Man’s office. Of all the offices, this one is the coldest and most boring. As though whoever Winston Constantine is, he doesn’t do any sort of work, but instead gazes out the windows all day. 

Finally, I locate the code and punch it in. 

It’s like twelve numbers long, and I fail a few times before it grants me entry. With a sigh of frustration, I push the door open and drag my rolling cart in after me into the dark office. I hit the light switch with my elbow and leave my cart in front of the door to prop it open. I fidget with the dumb uniform skirt I have to wear and wonder if anyone would notice if I wore jeans instead.

 I grab the duster and make a beeline over to the painting on the wall. It’s the best part of the office besides the cool desk that moves up and down and the windows overlooking the most picturesque parts of New York City. I touch the bottom of the frame to check for dust. As I imagined it to be, there’s not a speck. 

I’m just moving to the bookshelves when I hear a creak.

“You’re supposed to clean it, not pretend,” a deep, furious voice growls, scaring the ever-loving shit out of me.

 “What the fuck, man?” I snap, whirling around, dropping my duster in the process. “You can’t just sneak up…” I trail off as I drink in the man sitting in the desk chair. 

Holy shit. 

Was he here the whole time? 

Fucking creepy! 

But there’s nothing creepy about his looks. He’s not a fuddy duddy either, if this is Winston Constantine. He’s fine as hell. 

Older. Dressed to the nines in a three-piece navy suit that looks custom-tailored and expensive. A handsome, villainous smirk on his face. His dark blond hair is shorter on the sides and longer on top, styled perfectly, making it look as though he came from a photoshoot at Gucci or something. Just enough scruff to give him an edge despite his otherwise clean-cut appearance. It’s his eyes that are mesmerizing.

Dark blue. Intense. Penetrating. 

For some reason, it makes me think about my ex-boyfriend, Tate. The exact opposite of this man. Soft and sweet and gullible. Tate and I were a high school thing, but the moment we graduated a couple of weeks ago, we amicably broke it off knowing we were headed in different directions. This guy looks anything but soft, sweet, or gullible. 

He looks scary. 

Scary hot. 

But still scary.

 I clear my throat. “Sorry. I’ll just empty your trash and be out of your way.”

 “No,” he rumbles, his voice dripping in a menacing tone. “I’ve been waiting for you. It’s time we chat, little girl.”

My Review 

Deliver Us is one of the most dark, delicious, sinister , addictive series I have ever read. It is so raw and gritty and spares no deviously demented deltail that I really should be more disturbed, instead… I cannot get enough of these characters who should be unredeemable in every way. I’m a true sucker for a Stockholmn y’all! I want to see the most darling sinde to the former deplorable. Give me all the redemption, absolution, let me see every heard fought moment of vindication. 

Deliver

In Deliver , book one we get the story of Liv and Joshua Carter, the All American, college football hero on his path to a life serving his creator. Unknowingly watched and ultimately chosen because he painted the picture of innocence with his gorgeous green eyes, Christiananity and disciplined skills on the field and off around his parents’ farm. Captured by the Deliverer to be trained as a slave for the Master that will ultimately purchase him , Liv, once a former captive since she was seventeen and slave herself, is tasked with training him. 

“She was a deliverer, a killer, a soulless captor.”

From the get go things start to go anyway but how Liv predicted. I’m not gonna give anything away , but I will say that while Joshua did me the qualifications the buyer was looking for, Live was so inexplicably drawn to him from the first moment she had seen him and no matter what he was going to be the one they took. 

“He was a glimmer of goodness in her dark fucking world, a warm spark she could hold, if only for a fleeting span of time.”

From early on he felt there was more to Liv than the cold  Mistress vibe she was trying to portray. This story is so dark and all the webs that weave  the ways this story connects all the characters together, Liv, Van, and Josh are emotional, and shocking. I felt ALL the feels in this book. Frustration, love, sickness, mad, sadness, desperation, overwhelmed, fear, redemption, angst and suspense.  I loved Liv and Josh. I loved the hope he gave her. He was a walking ray of hope and second chance at life and our tragically broken and destroyed Liv needed that and more. Five Heart Stopping Stars ⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️🖤⭐️

Vanquish

HOLY HOT HELL!! If I thought I loved Liv and Josh’s story, Yall! It had nothing on the number  that Van and Amber’s story did on my heart. I HATED Van’s character for three fourths of book one and then right at the very end of book one something happens and I was in tears.

Y’all really he was disgusting, creepy and seemed to have no conscience whatsoever.  He had this weird love with Liv, but it was misplaced. He was trained to be the tyrant he was, by people who he should have been able to depend on. Anyhoo, when we start with book two it’s around a year after the end of book one ended, and he is back up to his old watching/stalking ways, but there is a legit reason for it.

During his staking out he runs across Amber, a former beauty queen with agoraphobia. In his selfish mind he quickly realizes one; she may have more issues than him and two; she just might be able to help him with his plans. The more I  learned about this woman I was just so heartbroken for her. 

Van may be up to some of his old ways when he goes about helping Amber but OMG, this book is so freakin unexpected. It’s full of elements of violence, torture, emprisonment, with edgy BDSM themes used as coping mechanisms, yet it still a book oh so much hope and healing.

“I enslaved her for seven years because I was selfish. That’s not love, Amber, which was why I never thought to free her.”

 We see such a side to Van I think we didn’t even know existed to help Amber. IN helping heal her, he healed so much of his own brokenness, learned to care for someone so much that your own agenda mattered less than protected them did. GAH! I will never be the same after this book.   TBH Vanquish is probably one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE stories of vindication and redemption. It was not an easy journey for Van or Amber but this was a phenomenal read. Five Vindicated Stars for Van Quiso  🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️

Disclaim

OMG! This series just continues to get better and better. In Disclaim we have the story of Camilla Liv’s first captive that was captured and trained by her and Van.

Now no longer held captive but lives her life to fight to end human slave trafficking. She will do whatever it takes to ensure that happens,  even if that means going in as a slave herself again.  Things take a turn she could have never expected when she comes face to face with the boy she was best friends with as a teeenager before she was captured. The boy who was supposed to get all her firsts. 

“I’m scared, Matias, fucking terrified of where you’re about to take me, but I’m relinquishing that to you, surrendering my vulnerability without shame, because that’s what you want, and what you want, I crave.”

This book is a rush of emotions and clashing of overwhelming desires, dominance. It’s about coming to terms with where they are now, getting over the years of deceptions, brutality, all the lies. Everything Matias and Camilla have been through and if there is any way they can overcome those insurmountable obstacles.

“Over the years, his need for her hadn’t faded. It had become a living, starving thing inside him, ruling his fucking world.”

 I am OBSESSED with this series and cannot get enough! Five Submissive Second Chance Stars   

⭐️💋⭐️💋⭐️💋⭐️💋⭐️💋

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐- ALL THE FREAKIN Stars in the sky for this SET books 1-3 in the Deliver series.These books have everything you could want and more out of dark, delicious, deviant, dominant, and somewhat disturbed. Yet they are beyond ADDICTIVE and I can’t get enough. I live for the unredeemable to be redeemed and Pam Godwin is the queen if giving us these characters. They are tragically flawed, cracked and broken and she takes them on these gut wrenching journeys that help to put them back together. No without scars but better people because of their journeys.  

🔥🔥🔥🔥- These books are so hot. They are combos of dub-con,non-con, some BDSM and some serious Alpha Lovin’ and I am here for it ALL!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No cliffhanger! Each book does not end with a cliffhanger but the series does continue on with another couple. 

🔫🔫Trigger Warning- This book contains subject matter that could be a trigger for some folks. I’m not going to give specific spoilers. I will just say these books are heavily emersed in the world of human trafficking. It’s not always easy to read about it, but how the characters come out in the end was so important to their journey. If you have any specific questions please feel free to PM me.
