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.

Sicko Blog Tour & Review

SICKO by Amo JonesRelease Date: September 1stAdd to Goodreads:https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/50489991-sicko

AVAILABLE NOW!!FREE in Kindle Unlimited!Amazon US: https://amzn.to/3epdGz2Amazon UK: https://amzn.to/34XLiTxAmazon CA: https://amzn.to/2YMioS8Amazon AU: https://amzn.to/34J0L9B

Blurb:He was my foster brother.He swore to protect me.He failed.They all failed.I’m an open box of passé photographs, snapped in chaste daylight, but filtered in sepia. I’m the past that he tried to forget, and he was the future I needed. When he left six years ago, I screamed for him every night. But then it all stopped. My screams were suddenly muffled by cruelty, and further coaxed by pain.But he has come back. He’s not the cute big brother I had a furtive crush on, or the bad boy, rich brat that I hated to love.He’s the ruthless vice president of Wolf Pack MC, and he doesn’t answer to Royce Kane anymore.He answers to Sicko.

My Review

WOW!! Just WOW! Amo Jones has dang near left me speechless. In a puddle of emotions, all of my feelings torn to shreds. I was absolutely broken by the incredible masterpiece that is Sicko, before Amo Jones put me back together piece by piece. Let me start by saying that I think that Amo is incredibly talented and she gets better with every book she writes. As soon as I know she has a new book coming out, I immediately add it to my TBR,  block out my schedule for it. This book was no different. It was everything I was hoping for, yet absolutely nothing like I was expecting it to be. It. Was.So.Much.More! 

Royce and Jade’s characters are phenomenally written. Royce first meets Jade, when she is brought into the family as a baby (a foster)  and then adopted by them. As they grew up they always had a special connection, but when they grew to teens it became an entirely different type of love and connection between them. Royce’s love caused him to be alpha and protective. Jade might have been young but it was more than jealousy and infatuation. 

“We fight a lot, but we love hard and when it comes to him and me, one cannot exist without the other. “

Their story is dark and tragically devastating. Parts of it hurt badly to read. I was broken down and torn apart. I hurt for these two characters who were inevitably meant for one another. Royce left her right on the cusp of them finally getting to be together, and it devastated her. What she endured after was the stuff nightmares are made of, but it showed us the strength and resilience of this beautifully crafted character. She was amazing. She was a warrior, perseverance personified. Complex and strong. I rooted and cheered for her to get her happy ending. Because if anyone deserved it, it was most certainly her. 

Royce/Sicko shredded me when he left Jade. I didn’t understand it. But…I knew and trusted that Amo would reveal to us why and who was behind Royce leaving and hurting Jade. However , the chain of events that happened to our Jade after he left was shocking, and unpredictable. It left me breathless and awestruck. I hung on every syllable of this book. Dangling on the edge of my seat. It was the perfect blend of dark and devastating, delicious and deviant. It was heartbreaking but at the same time full of hope. Truly it was the best kind of story. Triumph over tragedy, and what I love the most about dark romance. It was the forbidden dark romance I was looking for and didn’t even know it. At its very deepest, and darkest core, Amo Jones tells us a tragically beautiful tale of true love so strong that it slays the nastiest of demons, overcomes the most horrific of obstacles and forgiveness that heals even the most shattered and broken. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-  This is a book this is almost impossible to sum up in a few sentences. Because this book is one I will think about for a long time to come. It’s one that you won’t be the same after reading. So you definitely need to read this book!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Oh My god. Hot Smokin’ Hades!!🔥Royce and Jade are off the charts hot. And don’t even get me started on the addition of Wicked! Because I.Am.Dead.💀

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! However, I would sell all I own for Wicked’s book right about now or very soon.

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some, just as the author warns in the beginning. It is what you would expect from a Dark/MC Romance. They are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

About the Author:Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Grave Release Blitz & Review

GRAVE 

My life went to hell years ago, and I’ve had a death wish since then with fast cars, women, and drugs. They don’t call me Grave for nothing! 

But I do it because I need to feel something… anything. What’s life worth living for without the high? 

And then I saw her! 

She’s too good for me, and I should stay away. But like any addict, I switch one drug for another, and I’ll be taking her to hell with me. 

APRIL 

I’m anything but sweet, despite what people think, so when he tells me I’m too good for him and I’m better off without him, I don’t listen. 

My life was simple before Grave stepped through that door, but who wants simple? 

He makes me feel alive. It only took one touch, and I became addicted! 

But therein lies the problem. Addiction is Grave’s middle name, and when he tells me he’s taking me to hell with him, I don’t know whether to take that as a threat or a promise!

My Review

Holy hell!! These Dark Kings are gonna be responsible for the early death of panties everywhere, ladies. They are so hot and sexy that undergoods just spontaneously melt in their presence.

Grave!! Oh my Grave!! I went into his story not knowing quite what we were gonna get with him. This man is living his life on the edge. Playing Russian roulette with his life everyday with the choices he makes. Drugs, drinking, womanizing and chasing adrenaline in any way he can. The people that love him the most live in constant fear of when they are gonna find him dead and he doesn’t seem to care. He seems to have accepted his fate that he’s just going to end up in an early grave, and that’s preferable to dealing with the hurt that he’s had buried for so long. 

He is beautiful, loyal to his family and wanted by many women, but this gorgeous man is broken. Broken beyond repair, or so he thinks. But can the right woman believe in him enough to make him believe he’s worth fixing? When he meets April she changes the way he looks at lots of things. He doesn’t even realize it’s happening and oh my heart never stood a chance. Swooning so hard! 

April is this amazingly strong and resilient character who is working her fanny off to keep her flower shop afloat and care for her brother after her mother died. When Grave walks into her shop she is immediately drawn to him, to figuring out the intricacies of this complex and gorgeous man. She knows something isn’t quite right but she’s determined to figure it out, because she believes he’s worth it.

I love that he doesn’t feel the need to give into his vices when he is with her, she has become his new vice. His new addiction. She has this ability to help him heal without even realizing it. They are just amazing together. He’s just such a mess on his own in so many ways. But she brings out all the things in him that are the best parts. Boy, and there are many of them. All these are those parts that make him one of the elusive and elite dark kings.

I couldn’t stop reading this book the second I started until I was finished. This book was so full of everything I love and expect from Shantel’s books. Lots of yummy chemistry, suspense, lots of secrets, lies and angst. Hot scenes galore and unexpected edge of your seat moments. As always she gives us a full cast of characters to fall for,  and I’m already starting to  count the days until we get all of their stories. 

Grave was another phenomenal addition/addiction to the Dark Kings series. I can’t wait for more!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-GAAHHH!! All the amazing secondary characters make this book even more amazingly fantastic!  I’m addicted to the Dark King’s and can’t wait for the remainder  of their books. Shantel gives just enough of each of them  in every book that we are salivating over each and every one of these dark and devious bad boys. I’m legit dying of anticipation for their stories. I.Can’t.Even!! BTW, I’m shocked at how hard I fell for Grave. Every Sinfully Sexy Inch of him. 

Infinite number of Stars in the Sky for this book!  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- GAH!! Words are failing me here my friends, which doesn’t happen often. But heck yeah!! Hot Smokin’ Hell!🔥Grace and April are all kinds of Hot!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! However, More Dark King’s books are coming our wayand I cannot wait!! 

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some, but what you would expect from a Dark/MafiaRomance. They are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

Want More DARK KINGS??

TITAN
I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.
A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.
I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.
I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.
Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.
Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.
And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.

EMILEE
When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.
But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.
Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.
One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.
I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.
“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.
I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.
He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.
What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.
But was it for nothing? (less)

Meet the Dark Kings first in COS.

Dangerous and feared.

Those words describe my future husband. Who just so happens to also be my ex-boyfriend.

It’s complicated. Two years ago, he broke my heart when he left me to do his father’s bidding. After months of crying, I finally accepted he was gone and wasn’t going to look back. That maybe he’d never loved me at all. I never wanted to see Luca again.

Now a cruel twist of fate has signed me over to him in a heartless deal. I’m his. He thinks he did me a favor, but I feel like I’ve been given a death sentence. He doesn’t want to get married because he still loves me. No, he did it for money. More power.

I’m going to be a mafia wife. And there’s only one way out of it. Death.

But as it turns out, someone else doesn’t want me to marry the ruthless Luca Bianchi. And if he has his way, I’ll see that early grave.

Hood River Zero Blog Tour & Review

Hood River Zero

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 4 by K Webster Publication Date: July 30, 2020 Genres: Forbidden Friends to Lovers Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, friends to lovers romance called Hood River Zero! Life was nearly stolen from me. In the blink of an eye, everything changed. I’m no longer the charismatic, hot playboy Hoodlum. I’m irrevocably altered. Damaged both inside and out. I can’t think. I can’t function. I can’t live. Not with all this darkness and pain dragging me into unknown depths. Some days, I wish I never woke up. But then life takes an unusual turn. A sweet, sad little girl might be mine. My dream job is gifted to me. I have a doctor who cares. Things are looking up. Until her. One mouthy, bratty, mean beautiful young thing complicates everything. She sees the darkness inside that I’m trying desperately to hide from everyone. Pokes. Prods. Infuriates. This girl won’t stop until she’s touched every scar, both inside and out. I’m not sure how I’m supposed to mentally heal and be a better man when I have the most unapologetic, unpopular mean girl shining her light into every dark crevice inside me. Annoying. A nuisance. Not worth my time. I’ll shake her off eventually. She’s nothing to me. A Hood River zero. Try telling my heart that… This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book four in the Hood River Hoodlum series that all have interlinking storylines. Hood River Zero shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the final book in the four-book series that gives each Hoodlum a story. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF. The Hood River Hoodlums is now a complete series!

My Review

What an amazingly, unputdownable way to end the Hood River Hoodlums series. 🤩Each book in this series was unique and each couple tragically beautiful in their own way. This series is binge-worthy. You can’t help but to fall deeply in love with each character, their journey and their back story. I am super excited about the note to readers in the back of Hood River Zero. 🙌🏻

Terrance and Penny captured my heart🥰 a long time ago. Both of these characters have deep issues they are dealing with, but they are able to recognize they are each other’s perfect counterpart😍. They always just seem to know exactly what the other one needs. GAH! It’s precious and sweet and emotional. Penny was the one who brought Terrance out of the pit of despair he was in. Boy did she ever. Lol 

She did it in that blunt, sharp witted tongue lashing way that only the “Mean-Ass Hoodlum” 😈 could bestow upon you. It was the way he needed to hear it too. 

Penny struggles with issues of her own and has for years. When Terrance shows interest in wanting her to be his girl how will she respond? She knew she wasn’t normal inside and figured no one would ever really want her if they could see inside her head. Terrance immediately picked up her struggles and always anticipates her needs almost before she even does. 

“Terrence is normal. Perfect, even with his uneven head, drooping eye, and plentiful scars.And I’m the definition of imperfect. Broken and flawed and barely functioning.”

He is so drawn to her and is almost surprised when she went from Hollis’ little sister to his everything. But since he can’t get her out of his head then nothing will stop him from making her his. Making sure she knows she is safe, loved and cared for. He’s just this big teddy bear with a heart of gold, that can kick you fanny if you mess with what’s his. So.Freakin.Hot! 🔥

“It’s Penny, for fuck’s sake. Bratty, annoying, mean-ass Penny. God sure did make her fucking pretty to mess with my head.”

This book, like the others, is full of secrets, lies and suspense. All of our favorite Hoodlums must come together to help their own. Several things happen in this book that need some Hoodlum smackdown, and no one brings a beat down like a Hoodlum set out to protect the ones they love. This entire series is a much read.

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-Don’t miss this friends-to-lovers, age-gap, forbidden Romance. This has everything you could possibly want: angst, suspense, love, lies, betrayal, secrets, forgiveness.  

🔥🔥🔥- Terrance and Penny are everything slow burn to the bedroom. But it’s perfect when we get there. Yes, Yes, Yes!! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning🌪-!! I just love all my Hoodlums. I want more!! 

🔫 Trigger Warning-This book 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.

My Review

Starlet is the final book in the Sinister fairytales collection. Did they save the best for last? I think they saved one of the best for sure. Now, I’m not familiar with Anastasia nor have I read this author before but nonetheless I was blown away by this book. 

I am going to have to keep this review short and vague as to not give away anything at all. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is sinister and dark and suspenseful. You will be on the edge of your seat as you become captivated by this story, these complex broken characters with tragic pasts and the phenomenal way this author weaves together their story in a way that it unfolds throughout the book to keep you intrigued and engaged. This book is hot and steamy and it will definitely melt your kindles. But it also has some frustration going on and you will want to scream at times too. 

All and all I really enjoyed this last book in the Sinister Fairytales collection. But I happen to really love dark romance and will definitely check out this author again. If you have triggers and aren’t a big fan of dark romance then this is probably not the book for you.

OH HOLY HELLS YES! I have been sweatin it out, panting with anticipation waiting for Titan’s story y’all. Of course Shantel slayed his story like the queen of dirty, dark and delicious she is!! This fantastic book kills it. With punch after punch. Hitting every feeling you’ve got. It will keep you on the edge wondering WTF is happening?!?! You will be sucked in from the moment you start this book until you close out of it, lost in the epic book hangover I assure you is upon you! So grab a drink, a snack, and Buckle Up Baby Shantel’s about to take you on one hell of a ride back to Sin City. 

I love the deliciously arrogant ones. You know the ones, you start out semi-despising them?! That’s Titan and before you know it you’re obsessed with him. He is unapologetic for who he is and he’s alpha AF! He’s dark, and borderline dangerous and you definitely don’t want to cross him. He is protective of Emilee beyond measure. Which she finds confusing because he has always hated her. He wants to own her in every way, and he will! He may be tough but he has a huge heart, and it has always beat for Emilee. Even though there were reasons why he never made his move, she was always on his mind. But holy shit were they ever hot as blue blazes together!!

I low key have the biggest girl crust ever on Emilee. Her character is amazing. She has fight in her and grit but I love how Titan can bring her to her knees. Willingly that is. The lengths she will go to to care for those she loves is inspiring and just in awe! My heart is also devastated for her. I mean how much can this one girl have to continue to go through. I wanted everything good life had to offer for her, and I wanted Titan to give it to her. 

This book is full of jaw dropping, heart pounding heat filled intense moments. You will go from the pit of despair to cloud nine. It is LIFE!! It was all I wanted and more. I can’t wait for more books in this series. It’s addictive and I’m already counting the days until the next book drops. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-GAAHHH!! All the amazing secondary characters make this book even more phenomenal!  I’m hooked on the Dark King’s and can’t wait for the rest of their books. Shantel gives just enough of each in every book that we are salivating over these dark and devious bad boys. I’m legit dying for their stories. I.Can’t.Even!! Can one die of anticipation?!?! BTW, I am so in love with Titan. Every Sinfully Sexy but of him. MINE! 

All the Stars in the Sky for this book!  ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- GAH!! Words are failing me here my friends, which doesn’t happen often. But yeah!! Hot Smokin’ Hell! Hotter than Satan’s Fanny y’all!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! However, More Dark King’s books are coming and I cannot wait!! 

🔫 Trigger  Warning-This book does have some scenes that could be considered triggers for some, but what you would expect from a Dark/MafiaRomance. They are fairly graphic. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

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.

Titan Cover Reveal

Titan - CR banner

I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

Titan, an all-new dark and twisted standalone from bestselling author Shantel Tessier is coming May 29th, and we have the smoking hot cover!

TITAN

I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.

A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.

I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.

I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.

Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.

Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.

And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.

EMILEE

When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.

But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.

Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.

One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.

I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.

“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.

I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.

He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.

What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.

But was it for nothing?

Road to Fire Cover Reveal

Release Date: April 30

“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 buss 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.”

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 whose been hunting me is the only one who can keep us safe.
