The Bosun Review

OMG yโ€™all! Flutters of excitement, this book gave me butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹ and goosebumps and so many moments of fan myself goodness! ๐Ÿ˜ย 

So, Harlow Layne is MY GIRL an absolute reaper of Reverse Age Gap! SHE KILLSย  IT EVERY DANG TIME!ย Intern, The Model and now The Bosun! GAH! My heart is so full though, yโ€™all! Holy Moly Harlow Layne sure put me through the ringer though as always. Lol

There are so many unexpected gems in this book, it will give you everything you are yearning for and things you didnโ€™t even know you wanted or needed. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป From the second you crack the first page it will keep you hanging on every word hoping against all that Stella gets her groove back and overcomes everything her disastrous marriage and divorce put her through. Amongst dramatically sweet and swoony and incredibly funny mishaps, to unexpected moments of frustration, Remy and Stellaโ€™s journey is the most delectably phenomenal rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I stressed, I swooned.ย  I fell so hard for and couldn’t help but to root for the sexy, sweet and so perfectly matched for Stella , Remy. In the past ladies I may have claimed in no uncertain terms that Ryder was MINE, but believe me when I say Remy sure gives him a run for his money.ย  Heโ€™s mine tooย  just letting yโ€™all know now! I will share him with Stella, cause sheโ€™s my girl and her and Pen would probably gang up on me, but Iโ€™m not sharing with nobody else. Lol ๐Ÿ˜

Stella is a loving friend, sweet, sassy, but is trying to regain her confidence after her ex-husband did the unthinkable. When she first sees the off limits, Remy, she is blown away by this drop dead gorgeous man. He is legit EVERYTHING! He could do things to her body she didnโ€™t even know were possible.ย 

Sheโ€™s had a rough go as of late and he only wants to make her feel desired and make her feel better.ย  They both know this can only be a super secret vacation romance. When life throws situations that beg to differ will Stella take the opportunity given and finally get her much deserved HEA?ย 

Remy is working as the bosun on a chartered Yacht when he first meets Stella and her band of wild and missflt friends. He is this phenomenally hot,ย  sweet, young and fun-loving guy but also very off-limits charter staff member. But heโ€™s also very mature and polite. However he is hiding some secrets and feelings of his own. This guy may be young but heโ€™s far from a kid, the stuff he’s seen and dealing with, OMG!! The tears yโ€™all. Oh how I cried! . This guy is all alpha man. Heโ€™s dirty and dominant in the bedroom, and sweet and the perfect gentleman outside. AHHH! Yes, heโ€™s that Yummy of a combo, ladies. Heโ€™s got it bad for his โ€œsexy Stella.โ€ When the vacation is over can Remy just walk away and just forget about Stella?ย 

There are most definitely many obstacles that she and Remy must overcome but they just had this undeniable chemistry from the moment they first met. It was hot and electric and they never stood a chance at not giving into their feelings physically, they were just that flipping hot yโ€™all! But more than that, their emotional connection. 

There is always something a little unconventional about Harlow Layneโ€™s couples, they are truly amazingly beautifully connected couples.ย  Be it life circumstances, appearances, or age difference, she always manages to shock us in some way with their lifeโ€™sย  journey up to the point of meeting. Her approach to how her couples handle and grow through their challenges and differences are what makes her books heartwarming, edgy, swoony, suspenseful and at times angsty. Nevertheless her couples love stories always manage to transcend whatever life throws their way.ย  The characters are strong, resilient and above all they LOVE BIG and love should always win. It does and so do you with every Harlow Layne book, because there is always a Happily Ever After!!ย

Lie to Me Surprise Release


A standalone romance novel

If my childhood taught me anything, it was to survive.

Now I have a deep-rooted mistrust of people and a wall of steel and ice surrounding my heart.

So, when Reed Ryan steps into my life, I know I need to keep him far away.

Heโ€™s everything I grew up hating. Fighting. Fleeing.

Devastatingly handsome, he looks like a drunken regret and has heartbreak written over every inch of his bodyโ€”literally. Heโ€™s the quintessential bad boy . . . and heโ€™s a cop.

But the man is my undoing.

When I push, he stands firm.

When I fight, he battles for us.

When he touches me, my traitorous body and heart respond.

Little does Reed know, every lie I feed him is laced with truth.

I have demons that refuse to let me go. Now one of them is threatening to destroy us both.

Molly grew up in California but now lives in the oh-so-amazing state of Texas with her husband, daughter, and fur baby. When she’s not diving into the world of her characters, some of her hobbies include hiking, snowboarding, traveling, and long walks on the beach . . . which roughly translates to being a homebody and dishing out movie quotes with her hubby. She has a weakness for crude-humored movies and loves curling up in a fluffy blanket during a thunderstorm . . . or under one in a bathtub if there are tornados. That way she can pretend they aren’t really happening.

Hazed Release Blitz & Review

Spring is here and it’s time to heat things up. Welcome to Palm South University.

Hazed: Palm South University #6 by Kandi Steiner is now live!

Half the crew is back at Palm South.
The other half has graduated.

Jess, Ashlei, and Erin move downtown together after graduation. While Ashlei recovers from heartbreak and makes a new plan of attack, Erin is trying to survive law school — and her new relationship. And after the explosive season finale of Ritual, Jess has found herself in quite the pickle.

Meanwhile at PSU, Bear and Adam are in their final semesters, which means one last Spring Break to rule them all. Thatโ€™s not the only thing on Bearโ€™s mind, though — not after he has a realization that changes everything. And while Adam and Cassie are finally back on track, their next chapter may not be as easy.

Skyler and Kip are back together after a semester apart, but while they expected a fairy tale ending, a newcomer might throw a wrench in their plans.

My Review

OMG! This PSU series has me OBSESSED yโ€™all! They are my people. lolย  couldnโ€™t wait to get back in this world. I needed to know whatโ€™s happening with them. Hazed was everything I was hoping it would be.I just canโ€™t get enough of the lives of the PSU crew. Iโ€™m so invested. It was filled with drama and misunderstandings, and totally exciting and sexy.ย  It made me laugh and it made me cry. I smiled, swore, fanned myself, cheered and seriously wanted to scream out in frustration. Yup all of that!ย 

Iโ€™m never gonna be ready to let these characters go. So I will give you a little spoiler free check in on them.ย 

Bear– Bear is still working on his feelings for a certain gal who has been through the ringer. We have seen our sexy teddy Bear grow so much throughout this series. From the campus playboy to the sweet and devoted friend, he is and will always be one of the best guys in the world! But the million dollar question isโ€ฆ will Bear finally get his girl? Well time will tell, cause I just canโ€™t say nor would I if I could. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ashlei– Our girl Lei is still suffering from that breakup and firing she was served up by the love of her life Brandon in Ritual.ย  While sheโ€™s definitely grown up and definitely coming into her own as a super boss babe, sheโ€™s still a work in progress…Romantically speaking.ย 

Erin– Erin is probably the character thatโ€™s come the furthest but she still has some more experiences to be had. She had so much to overcome. With the right supportive partner, she just might be a new and improved and healed Erin.ย 

Cassie and Adam are perfect for one another and just enjoying the relationship that they finally have. They endured so much to get where they are now. But itโ€™s looking like the future is going to require more sacrifices and trust than they could have ever imagined. But they havenโ€™t gone through all they have not to put in the work, right?ย 

Jess – After Kadeโ€™s familial revolution Jess has found herself in quite the pickle. Torn between old feelings she thought were dead and gone Jess is in trouble. What would you do when your past and present collide?ย 

Kip and Skylar are living the dream together at PSU. When some of the eager actors are being way too helpful to Kip, Skylar canโ€™t help but feel territorial and threatened. Couldย  Kipโ€™s limited time at PSU put some strain on their once solid foundation?ย

Her Reluctant Husband Release Blitz & Review



I would do anything for my family, including marrying a man who hates me.

Not like I had a choice when the person who helped raise me tells me who I must marry in order to save my home. 

When I came face to face with Alex Wilks again, the man who despises me and wishes I never stepped foot back into Kinder Falls after the day I left, I didnโ€™t know what I was in for. 

Alex was the boy I once idolized, but later, he became the man that broke my trust. 

Both of us are reluctant to dig into the lies and secrets surrounding the night that broke us apart. 

Because it might end up being the truth that destroys us.

One year. 

We just have to survive one year.

The only thing is, we both have so much to lose.

But maybe everything to gain.

My Review

This is without a doubt the most emotionally raw story Erica Marselas has written to date. This story literally broke me, so many times over before I began to heal right along with Alex and June. My emotions were put through the wringer with this second chance, enemies to lovers, forced marriage story that had me pouring out all my tears. ๐Ÿ˜ญ I was filled to the brim with excitement,ย  devastation, hopes for healing, love, and forgiveness. One of the things that fascinated me with this story was that It was SO different from anything else she had ever written before, proving that that there doesnโ€™t seem to be ANYTHING she cannot write, and she absolutely CRUSHED IT!!ย 

Told in dual POV, which is my favorite, Alex and Juneโ€™s story goes back and forth between the past when June was just nineteen years old and present time, five years later. We quickly learn that June is hiding devastatingly dark secrets and trauma. She has been suffering in silence for years, the only bright spots in her life being Alex, her bff Kathleen and their aunt Liz. Just when they were on the path to getting all they had ever wanted and being together, Alex and June lost everything they were just starting to build after one unforgivably tragic event forever altered the course of all of their lives. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ญ

My heart just broke for June. GAH! The tears I cried. To go through all she had over and over, only to lose everything and be blamed for things that were never her fault. It was more than most anyone could have endured. I loved how somehow she was able to pick herself up by her bootstraps and begin to heal, proving she was so much stronger than even she could have ever guessed she had the capabilities to be. How somehow through the anger, hurt,and resentment she helped both Alex and herself heal and move forward together. ๐Ÿ’”

Alex was always meant to be the great love of Juneโ€™s life but I hated him as much as I loved him at times. Everytime he was nasty it broke me, but deep down I understood his misplaced anger. Alex and June were a collection of misunderstandings and that caused them to hurt each other over and over. I was hoping against all hope that they would both pull their heads out of their fannies and get it together. 

I was in awe with Ericaโ€™s ability to incorporate characters so much into the story without them actually being present in the scenes. You will understand that more when you read it. But they had such strong influences over Alex and June, both good and bad. I loved it. It made it both funny and shockingly emotional. Like they had someone watching over them that anticipated their steps WAY before they even knew what they were doing, and boy they needed that kick in the pants to get past the past. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Erica did such a great job in June and Alexโ€™s characters. While they are frustrating and flawed, on their own, together they were perfectly imperfect and there was something just so right in the world when they finally got their crap together. Like the heavens opened up and angels sang down.ย ย 

Now heed my warning if you have triggers!! This book deals with some heavy subject matter, some serious PTSD and past trauma. If you get through that though there is such a beautiful story at its core. A story of hope, healing, overcoming devastating trauma, and forgiving the hurts inflicted on you by the person you love most in the world. Filled with just the right blend of humorous, and steamy moments to balance the tear jerking and wanna chuck your kindle moments, this book will run the gamut of your emotions and you will love EVERY.SINGLE.SECOND!! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ

Make You Beg Release Blitz & Review

โ€œDeliciously dark, steamy, and full of suspenseful twists and turns, this book kept me up ALL NIGHT. โ€ 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, sheโ€™s known as Henley Greene.
To me, sheโ€™s a little dollโ€” 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, heโ€™s going to get you.
He will win.
But I donโ€™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 youโ€™re a toy everyone likes to play with, youโ€™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.


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 โ€œwhat in tarnations is happening?โ€ 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!!ย 

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

This is the bully romance you MUST NOT MISS! 

I really canโ€™t say anything about what happens or anything about the characters personalities because I wonโ€™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.ย  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. Itโ€™s phenomenal!ย 

Infinite number of stars for this book. โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ

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 heโ€™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 canโ€™t. I never could. Iโ€™ve fallen for him. Hopelessly. Irrevocably.
But Winston isnโ€™t a lover, heโ€™s a business venture.
A way for me to pay for college.
A ticket out.
Heโ€™s never pretended to be anything other than that.
I canโ€™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.

My Reviewย 


I have lived and I have loved is not only a fantastic anthology but it is a fantastic anthology that is going to an amazing cause. I love when I can support a great cause and get little tastes from some of my favorites or even new to me authors. This collection was just that. From the beginning to the very end, each story gives you the very best of what we all desire. It cuts right to the heart and gives us the sexiest, swoony, and sweetest moments of these sinful and delicious short novellas.ย  I fell in love with each couple and loved that they were all so perfect and different. Each writer or duet of writers captured my attention quickly and held it every moment of their story. I canโ€™t wait to read more from the new to me authors and to check out the rest of the stories that have โ€œmore to come.โ€ Nikki Ash really delivered with her story bringing us Sierra and Koltonโ€™s story( Keeganโ€™s brother from Fool Me Once) There are just too many great to name them all.ย

๐Ÿ‘‘ My Review ๐Ÿ‘‘

Destroyed Destiny is right. My heart, my soul were destroyed, and were shredded many times throughout this book. Iโ€™m telling you, I am utterly wrecked! You might as well drop your theories, your expectations AT.THE.DOOR People, because you know nothing. I thought I had it all figured out. I DIDNโ€™T and I am so glad for that, because I would have missed out on the EPIC journey that I got and trust me is was just that. So.Freakin.Epic! So I will do my very best to convey just how amazing this book is without giving spoilers. Because #SpoilersSuck and I wouldnโ€™t dare deprive you of every single jaw dropping moment.ย 

So this book yโ€™all!! OMG! Itโ€™s taken every single emotion I have and tossed them all together in a blender. A feelings smoothie thatโ€™s what Mary did to me with this book. So it took me a minute to process everything and wrote my review. In some ways Iโ€™m still trying to process my feelings and nurse my sweet heart back to a normal level that is compatible with being able to function in society right now.ย 

Grayson and Storyโ€™s storyโ€ฆGAH! What a devastatingly hard journey. It was so worth it!! But oh the ache is deep and it is painful. You will be broken before you can be put back together. I can tell you this, Grayson and Story seemed like from day one were inevitable but they had so much working against them.ย  I canโ€™t say much more because I truly donโ€™t want to give anything away.ย 

Holy moly the devastation that happens the last few chapters, I didnโ€™t think my heart would survive it. I couldnโ€™t have ever even imagined some of the revelations that were coming out of those chapters. HOLY.MOLY! Be ready yโ€™all!ย 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

โญ๏ธโญโญ๏ธโญโญโญ- I will never be the same after this series yโ€™all! This book is fantastic, itโ€™s phenomenal. Itโ€™s so much more that I could have imagined and NOTHING like what I was expecting. It was SO Much More!ย 

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ-This was so hot yโ€™all. It was like simultaneously hot and lovingly sweet and I wouldnโ€™t have had it any other way. DAAANNNGGG! So Yummy Yโ€™all!ย 

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning- I think most will be happy with the way this ended!! There were some things I am still not quite sure how I feel about. But Iโ€™m so so impressed with this book! Bravo! Like just AMAZING!!ย

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, insteadโ€ฆ I cannot get enough of these characters who should be unredeemable in every way. Iโ€™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. 


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 parentsโ€™ 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. 

โ€œShe was a deliverer, a killer, a soulless captor.โ€

From the get go things start to go anyway but how Liv predicted. Iโ€™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. 

โ€œHe was a glimmer of goodness in her dark fucking world, a warm spark she could hold, if only for a fleeting span of time.โ€

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 โญ๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ–คโญ๏ธ


HOLY HOT HELL!! If I thought I loved Liv and Joshโ€™s story, Yall! It had nothing on the number  that Van and Amberโ€™s story did on my heart. I HATED Vanโ€™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.

Yโ€™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. Itโ€™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.

โ€œI enslaved her for seven years because I was selfish. Thatโ€™s not love, Amber, which was why I never thought to free her.โ€

 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  ๐Ÿ”ฅโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅโญ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅโญ๏ธ


OMG! This series just continues to get better and better. In Disclaim we have the story of Camilla Livโ€™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. 

โ€œIโ€™m scared, Matias, fucking terrified of where youโ€™re about to take me, but Iโ€™m relinquishing that to you, surrendering my vulnerability without shame, because thatโ€™s what you want, and what you want, I crave.โ€

This book is a rush of emotions and clashing of overwhelming desires, dominance. Itโ€™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.

โ€œOver the years, his need for her hadnโ€™t faded. It had become a living, starving thing inside him, ruling his fucking world.โ€

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


My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญโญ- 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 canโ€™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.  

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ- These books are so hot. They are combos of dub-con,non-con, some BDSM and some serious Alpha Lovinโ€™ and I am here for it ALL!! 

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning- No cliffhanger! Each book does not end with a cliffhanger but the series does continue on with another couple. 

๐Ÿ”ซ๐Ÿ”ซTrigger Warning- This book contains subject matter that could be a trigger for some folks. Iโ€™m not going to give specific spoilers. I will just say these books are heavily emersed in the world of human trafficking. Itโ€™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.
