Saffron A. Kent has done it again. She just has this special gift with her writing to immediately suck me into her stories. Her characters will undoubtedly snatch me up by my heartstrings in a fisted grip and I know they will put me through the wringer over and over before all will be said and done. OMG! This book Y’all. From the moment I cracked it I was immersed, I was obsessed. I was instantly ADDICTED!!
It doesn’t get better than enemies-to-lovers, but add in that he’s the ex-boyfriends best friend. WOW!! The drama, angst and forbiddenness that it adds to this. Yes please!
Echo is the sweetest. She is beautiful and just good as gold. Like most of this author’s heroines she’s a bit quirky, adorably so. I love her. 🥰
Reign has always had a thing for Echo but really never really thought he deserved her. So when his best friend took a liking to her as well he stepped aside and let who he thought “was the better man” go for her.
This book is such a rollercoaster of emotions. I went from my heart all a flutter, to furious, to fanning myself because it’s freaking HAWT! 🔥 Then I was swooning, swearin’, and shouting hot mess. This book had me feelings every emotion. All the thighs. Even at my lowest points in the book I wouldn’t trade a second.
This is probably my FAVORITE of the series. Just Phenomenal, Fantastic, Terrifically Unforgettable. Fifth and final standalone book in the St. Mary’s Rebels is not to be missed. I highly recommend the entire series but you absolutely cannot miss this one. I cannot wait for the spin-off series coming soon. FIVE Favorite in Series Stars ⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨

Quarterback Sneak by Kandi Steiner is now live!
Quarterback Holden Moore can have any girl he wants.
Except me: the coach’s daughter.
With piercing green eyes, herculean biceps, and irresistible dimples, Holden is the number one target for every girl on campus. But according to his teammates, football is the only love of his life.
He’s their leader, their QB1 and team captain who is all business and no play.
But when I’m with him? Mr. Serious isn’t serious at all. He loves to push my buttons, to pin me with those sexy eyes of his and tease me until I bite back.
I remind him I’m off limits.
He can’t have me, and I don’t want him—or anyone else, for that matter.
I’m here for one reason: to show my father I’m more than his greatest disappointment.
But when an old injury flares up and I’m forced to work with Holden every day as his athletic trainer, his attempts to get under my skin start becoming harder to resist.
We can’t give in, no matter how much the air crackles between us when we’re close.
I’m the coach’s daughter, and if Holden Moore wants to go pro, he’s got to play by daddy’s rules.
Otherwise, he’ll be off the team.
And he’s not the only one with something to lose.

I couldn’t possibly love this series any more than I do. Author Kandi Steiner Is one of those authors I immediately one-click. ANYTHING she writes. I don’t even need to read the blurb first. I know I’m going to love it. I don’t think I have ever rated any of her works less than a four star. Pretty sure I would darn near give one of my pinky toes to be granted the privilege to ARC read her grocery list. Lol But really, If you are anything like me then you love a good college/new adult, sports, forbidden (quarterback & coach’s daughter), forced proximity, grumpy/sunshine, secret romance. What you will find even more appetizing here is the way this author flips the trope script on you and you get anything but the typical in some of these tropes. Trust me, you definitely don’t have to worry that you’ve read this story before. Because you HAVEN’T! Holden and Julep were unexpectedly everything I didn’t know I needed and SO.MUCH.MORE!
HOLY HOT HADES! Two words ladies. Holden.Moore. The little tidbits we’ve got of our captivating captain in the previous books could never have prepared my heart for a whole book of Holden. Very focused and together, he’s got one thing on his mind, football. Pretty planned out for smooth sailing right on through his senior year. But what he couldn’t have planned out in any playbook, was being flipped right on his fanny by none other than the coach’s daughter, in all her delicious forbidden glory.
Julep Lee has walls as high and tight as Ft. Knox up to keep people from getting close. No stranger to loss, it’s just best to not get close to people then you can’t lose them. Holden is someone and evokes feelings she never expected. His ability to cut down to the most vulnerable and terrified parts of her and meet her there, with an understanding only someone who knows pain like she has could. GAH. 🥺 The emotions in this book. In their story they discovered how to let things be and forgive themselves. They were able to look at life from a new perspective. That realization that you have found your person. The one who completes you, who gives you strength to let your guard down and truly be vulnerable with someone else. The complexity and depths to these characters. Their journey of finding love and a special bond over shared past traumatic experiences, and being able to share those with each other. A love so powerful and full of hope and healing in these sweet and tender moments. 🥰😍🥰
But as sweet as Holden was he had this amazingly alpha side that came out and it was hella hot y’all. Like a spark ready to ignite at any second they were just explosive. I’m talking about he smirks, the dimple comes out and panties go 💣 🩲POOF! 🩲💣💋 *Chef’s Kiss*💋 I mean we all know combustible undies at a smile and a wink equals a good day. Am I right?!😏
Quarterback Sneak is the third stand-alone book in the Red Zone Rivals series. While you do not have to read the other book in the series before reading this, there are appearances by couples from the previous books. Plus they are amazing stories, so I cannot recommend them enough, so I say read them anyway if you can. You will be so glad you did.
My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up
SIX because I am never gonna want this series to end even though the next book is the final book, and five just isn’t enough to do it justice STARS!!
💭Overall Thoughts~I am such a Kandi Steiner super fan. Her emotional and angst filled writing never fails to suck me right from the first paragraph and have me lingering in a book hangover long after the last sentence is read. Her masterful word wizardry blends fun and super sexy, with the perfect amount of emotions and angst. It is so obvious the careful thought she puts into the backstory of each and every unique character she creates. I can’t get enough. Especially her series. That is why she is at the top of my list of one of my favorite one-click authors!
🌶HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶🌶 EXPLOSIVE, SCORCHING AND DELICIOUS. This author never let’s me down in the “love scene” department.
🥰HEA/CLIFFY🧗♀️~ No Cliffy. HEA– I was left all warm and ooey gooey at the end. I couldn’t love Holden and Julep any more than I do at this moment. So happy with the glimpse into the fourth and final book in the Red Zone Rivals Series. While I’m so sad to see this series end, I will be super pumped to see what Ms.Steiner has in store for us next.
Kandi Steiner is an Amazon Top 5 bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.
An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies. She started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.”
She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.
When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, planning her next adventure, or pole dancing (yes, you read that right). She enjoys live music, traveling, playing with her fur babies and soaking up the sweetness of life.

Pieces of a Life, part one in an all new duet in the Life series by Jewel E. Ann is now live!
The summer before fourth grade, Colten Mosley moved into the house across the street from mine, and we became inseparable.
He played the piano and baseball.
I had a penchant for dead things while at the same time imagining what it would be like to kiss Colten.
We were filled with curiosity and overly active imaginations.
We were also forbidden to be more than friends.
But that didn’t stop us.
Weeks before graduation, he annihilated my heart, and it’s been seventeen years since the day I knew I’d hate him forever.
Now he’s back in my life–a single dad and a homicide detective looking over my shoulder while I perform autopsies as one of Chicago’s most gifted forensic pathologists. Then fate throws us a curveball.
Colten saves my life, but he can’t erase the images that now keep me awake at night. And I can’t explain them.
Am I still the girl he’s always loved? Or nothing more than pieces of that life?

Holy Cow my mind is a jumbled mess right now, and I love it! I’m convinced Jewel. E. Ann could write anything and I would devour it. Rom com, yep. Contemporary, absolutely. Romantic suspense, yes please. Her grocery list, all signs point to yes. Anything and everything. Her latest story, Pieces of a Life, book three in the Life series, is just another example of the magnificence of her writing. Her ability to get quickly immerse readers in the story never ceases to amaze me. I know from the very beginning I fell hard and fast for Colten and Josie and couldn’t wait to read their history leading up to present day that has brought these once childhood sweethearts back into each other’s lives. One wanting nothing more that to get back what they lost seventeen years ago. The other set on not giving in to the one that destroyed their heart all those years ago.
Detective Colten Mosley is fantastic at his job. That job brings him face to face with the one person he’s never really gotten over, the only person he has truly ever loved. Also the person whose heart he obliterated in senior year of high school. Josie Watts was his best friend growing up, until she was his everything. He has always known that given the chance he would never let her go again. No matter what.
Josephine Watts was a feisty and inquisitive girl when she was young. She definitely had unique interests. But she has always been unapologetically who she is. As she got older the dynamics between her and Colten changed and they became so much more. She thought they were planning a future together but apparently the only future he had in store for her was heartache.
Seventeen years later both are back in their home town both successful in their careers. Career fields that put them in contact with each other on the regular. Push and pull and old feelings resurface. Then an event noone could have expected. I was left breathless, warring with what is happening and what it means for the future for Colten and Josie. I am obsessed with this duet already and CANNOT WAIT for the conclusion.
My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up
⭐️Star Rating~⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️~ Five, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the conclusion to this duet. STARS!!
💭Overall Thoughts~ All the delicious back and forth you crave. This second chance, frenemies to lovers, romantic suspense, with a pinch on paranormal/psychic twist is unputdownable and addictive. I can’t get enough of Jewel E. Ann’s writing. Every book is going to instantly grab my attention and hold me prisoner ( lock me up, baby) from the first word to the last. I instantly one-click any of her releases. Her ability to transition from past to present, trope to trope and flawlessly from one characters POV to the other is so smooth and makes it so easy to just plow right on through. This is for sure one of my TOP DUETS of 2022!
⚠️TRIGGERS~This book has some content that could be disturbing to some readers. Elements of Childhood traumatic death, Death, Scientific specifics surrounding death.( Autopsies etc.) If you would like more specific information feel free to PM me for more specific details.
🌶HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶🌶 Yummy, Hot, Spicy
🥰HEA/CLIFFY🧗♀️~ Cliffy. Part one of a duet. Will not get resolution until book two in late September. (Not too far away)

Well I thought I was hopelessly devoted to Deacon. ( Never with Me) I just knew I was utterly obsessed with Orrin.(Stay Always) But without a doubt I can say “ Move Y’all, Get Out The Way.” Because be still my heart, ♥️ I have been Bewitched by Brooks. His and Palmer’s story is steamy, sweet and totally swoony. In typical Kaylee Ryan fashion you get fantastically fun and flirty times, a great cast of secondary characters, a romantic and heartfelt story that is sure to melt both your heart and your kindle.
Stay Over, the first FULL LENGTH book in the Kincaid brother series, is a standalone but has characters we met briefly in both Never with Me, Deacon and Ramsey’s story. As well as Stay Over, Orrin and Jade’s novella. In Never with Me we are first introduced to the Kincaid brothers. Nine gorgeous and charming Georgia boys. I am already in love with them all and cannot wait to devour each and every one of their stories.Unique and amazing men each with his own story to tell but fiercely loyal to their family. The supportive way they jump in to be there for each other. Oh My Heart.
😭“Not just today, but today and all of the tomorrows. We’re here for you.”
Palmer is a sweet and sassy photographer. She’s the youngest sister of Deacon and Ramsey is her best friend. She is really proud of herself for getting her brother and best friend together, but hasn’t seemed to have that same kind of luck in her own love life. Plus she was really focused on her career and the guy she had the longest running crush on is her brother’s best friend, Brooks. He is older than her by six or seven years and would never look at her that way. Or so she thought.
Brooks Kincaid is caring, gorgeous and a total sexy sweetheart of a man. He grew up around Palmer because of his friendship with her brother but now he’s starting to see her in a whole new light. For both of them growing up in such loving homes, they saw examples everyday from their parents that set high standards in both their minds on what they wanted for their future partners. So they both were willing to hold out until that person came along and focused on their careers. But a some fun and flirting at a celebration open up the doors for a secret “mutually beneficial” arrangement that worked for both of them…until it didn’t. Feelings, miss understandings, and a little drama make for an enjoyably engaging journey with ALL the best friend shenanigans and Kincaid brother backing your little heart desires. 🥰

August Whitley was just a fling–someone fun to spend my time with no strings attached.
We broke things off before our feelings grew, but it was already too late.
After leaving town, I swore to myself that I would never look back.
And when I get surprising news, I’m completely committed to doing it alone.
𝘜𝘯𝘵𝘪𝘭 𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘯𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘯 𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘭𝘬𝘴 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘬 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘮𝘺 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦…
𝘗𝘰𝘱𝘱𝘺 𝘞𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘪𝘢𝘮𝘴. She was an enigma and a mystery that I wanted to unravel.
Neither of us were ready for a commitment and after a misunderstanding, she left town without a single word.
I tried to find her, but it was as if she fell off the grid. It was messing with my head and becoming a threat to my hockey career.
Until one night, one date with another girl… I find Poppy working at the restaurant and she’s pregnant.
𝘞𝘪𝘵𝘩 𝘮𝘺 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘥.
𝑰 𝒍𝒆𝒕 𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒍𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆 𝒎𝒆 𝒐𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒃𝒆𝒇𝒐𝒓𝒆, 𝒃𝒖𝒕 𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒔 𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆 𝑰 𝒘𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒍𝒆𝒕 𝒉𝒆𝒓 𝒈𝒆𝒕 𝒂𝒘𝒂𝒚.
Holy Hot Hockey Pucksl!!🔥🔥 I am beyond obsessed with August and Poppy’s addictively sweet and unforgettable story. I am allured by August, and Poppy is just positively perfect. This is a steamy and dreamy second chance romance with all the feels. A must read surprise pregnancy/sports romance that’s hotter than H-E-double-hockey-sticks!! 🏒🏒
August is loving life, living his dream playing hockey for the Wyncote Wolves hoping it will lead to playing professionally one day. He lives, eats, and sleeps hockey and has no plans of letting anything get in the way of that. However, things just got complicated. Because when he runs into the hookup he hasn’t been able to get out of his head his thoughts about what matters most for his future just might start to look completely different. For months he searched for Poppy and now here she is in front of him with an obvious bun in her oven…and It’s pretty likely that August is the one that put that bun in Poppy’s oven.👶🏼
Then comes the sweet and swoony side of August and oh he just stole my heart. ♥️ This is a reformed playboy (with a heart of gold). Take note, I said play boy as opposed to Fork-boy. I always knew he was a good guy to his core. Even when he and Poppy were just hooking up, they were only hooking up with each other.
Oh my sweet Poppy. 🥺 My heart just hurt for all she’d been through. She knows how August feels about commitment and that is fine with her until she finds out her future is about to change in a big way. 🤰🏼She felt she couldn’t do that to August so she did the only thing she could think of, she ran. She knew she needed to confront the truth and tell August one day. But a few months passed and she would confront him whether she was ready or not when they happened upon each other. While it seems like August quickly wants to jump right into the deep end, Poppy just wants to tread lightly in the shallow end and guard her heart. But she sees the changes in August. He is going out of his way to prove to her what is most important to him and that is quickly crumbling the walls she’s put up. He wanted to take care of her.
Oh my heart! I legit ATE.IT.UP. He just made me melt. The way he went after what he wanted. His patience with her, he was smexy, sweet, and sensitive. He went from a non-committal guy to just the guy that knows how to love you wholly. Mind, heart and body. Unselfishly. WOW! Is my love for August obvious or what?! 🥰🥰
I can not get enough of this series. These Wyncote Wolves are everything. My hubby was never into hockey but boy do they have me wishing he was. Lol It’s just so aggressive and testosterone filled and HOTT!! Good GAH! What a great group of guys too. They are just amazingly written characters and I want ALL of their stories. So far in each book we get enough snippets of the ones with stories to come to be intrigued and anticipating the days until we get them. I love that they are all so aggressive and alpha when they need to be. I find myself binging hockey teams on TikTok and picking out I think who would be my who.
Deflected Hearts is told in dual POV ( my personal favorite) and is the second standalone book in the Wyncote Wolves series. I am in love with how Cali Melle’s writing just sucks you right into the story and I cannot get enough of her panty melting, heart stealing heroes and the strong willed and sassy heroines that bring these men to their knees. While you don’t have to read Cross Checked Hearts before reading this book I would definitely recommend checking out Logan and Isla’s story. It is a fantastic brother’s best friend’s romance as Isla is August’s sister and Logan is his best friend.

I was the trick that they could never play.
She was the greatest game of all…
There was elegance that comes from being carved from the ashes of all the darkness that surrounds you in the world. You start as dust, and you end as dust. At least that’s what I always thought. Crowned Princess Mayhem all my life became old fast, and I found myself forging my iron crown with the blood of our enemies.
To The Brothers of Kiznitch, I was nothing but a little brat that always got my way. I was the sister none of them asked for, but they’d find themselves needing. He was no different. Loving Keaton Cicero was never going to be easy. There was evil within him that would never be accepted.
They thought their over-protectiveness had kept me safe all these years, but they were wrong. Everything they thought they knew, was about to burn around them. I wasn’t someone who needed protecting…
In Chaos We Reign can be read as a stand-alone, but it is recommended to read In Silence She Screams first to better understand some story points.

FABULOUSLY FLOORED!! 🤯 That is just one of the ways to describe how I’m feeling. This book, the ending to this unforgettably magnificent series has got me feeling all kinds of ways. I have always been one who would never turn down an Amo Jones book, but y’all, Y’ALL!! 🏻 I am blown away by the brilliance and talent this author poured out on the pages of In Chaos We Reign. Her ability to take me into this dark and ominous world she’s created. The eerie feelings of mystery, all the lies, and tons of secret twists and turns will keep you entranced and on the edge of your seat. 🙀This tale is deliciously dark and deviantly dirty. A twisted, gritty and gruesome tale, totally fitting for our Ice Princess, Cartier and her forbidden beau, Keaton. Their story as unique and tragically twisted as those before them is one of my favorites. The deep depravity and hidden lies behind these two. But the way they are when its just the two of them. OMG! I am not gonna give away anything more than that.
Amo concludes her Midnight Mayhem world in the way only she can. I do wish I had time to refresh my memories and reread all the other three books in the series again before reading ICWR. I think it would have made some things a bit clearer. I had to do some mind searching. lol Unpredictable, mesmerizing, explosive, alluring, and addictive! I will never forget this series. It is officially one of my all time favorites and one I will reread over and over again. I will warn you It is at times gruesome and graphic. If you have triggers I would recommend checking trigger warnings but If you are like me just jump right in and ENJOY!! All the stars for this phenomenally awesome series.⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨
Keep reading for a look inside In Chaos We Reign!
Sixteen years old
I remember the first time I realized my brother was crazy. I was twelve years old, and I watched him rip the meat off a man’s bones after he kidnapped me and locked me in an abandoned house to play dress-up. The man was a stranger, and even though our family business was risky, it had no connection with Midnight Mayhem or Kiznitch. Yet my glorious brother tore him to pieces with his bare hands and didn’t blink once. Tonight is just like then, only worse. Worse because this is someone I know, and it’s someone who tried to hurt me.
Doors slam closed outside, and I stop pouring the cashmere pink bubbles into my bath. Reaching for my phone on the counter, I open Spotify and hit play on “OT” by Niykee Heaton before dipping my toe into the warm water. Bubbles spill onto the dark veined marble floors as I sink deeper beneath the water, closing my eyes in an attempt at scrubbing the night away. I don’t want Kyrin to hear me cry because I know it will only make him worse. I’ve handled this school since my parents dumped me in it when Kyrin threw a fit to keep me away from Mayhem, and I will continue to handle it when he goes back on the road. Right now, I need peace. I need to feel nothing. See nothing. Hear nothing. They say drowning is the most peaceful death, I can imagine why. After being suffocated from oxygen for minutes, you welcome the feeling of numbness. Like now. Void. Stuck between a realm of life and death, I could float and hold my breath until I simply… die.
A hand is around my throat, pulling me out of my haze and I swipe water from my face angrily when I resurface. “What the fuck!” As soon as my eyes open, they land on Keaton, one of the four Brothers of Kiznitch. He and my brother have been inseparable since they were born—they all are—but Keaton isn’t like the rest of them. He is simply… different.
My mouth closes as I take in his clothes. Blotches of blood litter his designer jeans, and when I finally look up at his face, I find mud and more blood all over his cheek and shirt. The Brothers of Kiznitch have all been my extended brothers, all of them except Keaton. He is nothing like a brother to me, and that’s largely because he has never treated me the same way the other Brothers have. He doesn’t seem pissed about my presence, but not that fond of it either. He has always just existed. For a long time anyway. But I don’t know if I’d call what we share a normal friendship. My stomach always twists anytime I catch him staring, and it’s become more frequent the older I get, but that doesn’t change the fact that we both fight. Fight probably more than any of the other brothers, Kyrin not included.
“What the fuck, Keaton?” I glare up at him while leaning back against the curve of the bath, flicking my toe against the faucet to turn the hot water back on.
I see him dip to a kneeling position out of the corner of my eye, when his fingers curl around my chin, forcing my face to his. I hold my breath when his eyes settle on mine. Keaton is the scariest of all The Brothers—to everyone but me. Darkness hovers over him everywhere he goes, and no matter what he does, he’ll never be rid of it. Torment swims beneath the surface of his god-like features, and it has always bothered me that I can never take it away. No one can.
“Was there anyone else involved?” His voice is low enough to be a warning. I find myself losing my train of thought when I trace the edges of his naturally swollen lips.
“No,” I whisper, only it comes out broken from the saliva forming in my throat.
He stands back to his full height and kicks off his boots, tugging his shirt over his head from the back and throwing it onto a pile in the corner.
“Keaton…” I warn. “If Kyrin—”
“—don’t really give a fuck right now, Tigger.” I close my eyes and lean against the edge of the bath, listening as the clink of his belt falls to the floor before a long stretch of silence drifts between us. Just when I think he’s not going to do what he’s going to do, I feel his leg brush mine as he lowers himself into the bath opposite me. Keaton and I have kept each other at a distance, and most of the time I think I’m imagining the things I do. The long stares, brushes of hands, lingering touches. We fight as hard as we clearly care about one another, but it has always been clear. The lines have never been blurred.
