Lessons in Sin Release Blitz

Lessons in Sin by Pam Godwin is now live!

There’s no absolution for the things I’ve done. But I found a way to control my impulses. I became a priest.

As Father Magnus Falke, I suppress my cravings. As the headteacher of a Catholic boarding school, I’m never tempted by a student. Until Tinsley Constantine. The bratty princess challenges my rules and awakens my dark nature. With each punishment I lash upon her, I want more. In my classroom, private rectory, and bent over my altar, I want all of her. One touch risks everything I stand for. My faith. My redemption. And even my life. As if that could stop me. I need her pain, and her heart, and she needs my lessons in sin.

When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.

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 

Swoon ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

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.

Heโ€™s running out of options and needs the treatment.
The only thing is, he hasnโ€™t been honest with Hadley.
One truth leads to a cascade of events that all circle back to one thingโ€ฆ Anderโ€™s addiction.

Life is never easy and the road to recovery is paved with shattered glass.
Hadleyโ€™s in love with an addict that harbors more secrets than Pandoraโ€™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 otherโ€™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 canโ€™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 canโ€™t keep enabling him. Itโ€™s gonna hurt and take some huge sacrifice on her part because she just canโ€™t stay in this world of worry and stress with him. Butโ€ฆ Has he finally broken his last straw?

This book, like the others in the series, is emotional and raw. Itโ€™s so gut wrenching and real at itโ€™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 itโ€™s so REAL yโ€™all! There are couples out there like our Ander and Hadley right now and they donโ€™t survive. So I canโ€™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 itโ€™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!!

Badly Behaved Release Blitz & Review

Release Date: April 7

I’m a Monet.

A chameleon.

I’m whatever I must be.

And what I must be is a flawless daughter, a skilled socialite, and the perfect prize to the man who signed along the dotted line.

Not that I’m complaining.

I’m all for a contractual agreement, a quick and clean catapult into the next phase of rich girl life. One that takes little thought, less effort, and zero devotion.

It’s exactly what I want.

An impassive life.

A calculated future.

Or, it was until the lights went out, darkness took over, and I learned what it meant to live.

To feel.

To fall.

But everyone knows what thrives in the night burns in the light and flames were among us.

There is no escape.

No turning back.

No ending within my control.

My mother always says our choices determine our consequences.

I hate it when she’s right.

__

This is an all-new 103k word standalone romance about a rich girl and the trouble she finds herself in when she catches the eye of a guy unlike the ones in her world.

My Review

Meagan Brandy has knocked me on my Fanny again yโ€™all! In true Meagan fashion she has delivered a book so unexpected and original I’m almost struggling to find words to convey my love for this book, while not giving away any secrets.ย 

I certainly hope you arenโ€™t afraid of the dark?! The darkest and most delicious monsters come out to play in the dark, and holy hades these are some mouthwatering monsters. With sexy names to match the sexy and dark personas you will find yourself guessing and wondering what in the world is happening?! You quickly learn that the guys characters in this book are so perfectly penned and deep. They are unique and have this eerie and impenetrable vibe going on to their trio. As we go on I canโ€™t explain the feelings in my heart as each oneโ€™s own personal story starts to become unveiled. Every emotion I had was tugged at. It didnโ€™t know my heart had room for more of Meagan Brandyโ€™s boys after Brayshaw, but I WAS WRONG!!ย 

Then our gorgeous heroine. She hadย  castle sized walls up too. She was a perfectly polished faรงade from the front and no one had been able to penetrate past the mask she hid behind…Until now.ย My heart broke for her because no one knew who she truly was, what she really felt, or why she was the way she was. I was so frustrated for her. I really wanted to throttle on her behalf. She really won me over. Quickly!ย 

If you loved the Brayshaw boys, prepare your hearts ladies. Thereโ€™s some new man in town and they may just steal your heart away from your favorite Bray!ย  If you thought your Braygirls knew how to bring out their inner โ€œBโ€ well just wait till you meet โ€œTroubleโ€!ย 

I will say the first 20% or so is a smidge overwhelming with all the characters and names thrown your way, but you will catch on to whoโ€™s who pretty quick and then itโ€™s unputdownable! Donโ€™t try to predict because you will be blown away with the shocks and twists thrown at you. This book is original, unique, sinful and sexy in all the best ways. Itโ€™s mysterious and shocking and itโ€™s just downright really good! Read it yโ€™all!! Yeah, just read it!!ย

Hazed Release Blitz & Review

โฃ
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 

Cr8zysockbookblock ratings wrap up.ย 

โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ- So Many Stars! It was so full of fun, greek life shananigans,ย  secrets , angst, sex, heart, banter, tears, sexual tension , loss, and frustration, and surprises!ย 

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ-This book is filled to the brim with Sexy Sorority Sisters and Abs-for-days Alpha AF fraternity brothers. Oh Yummy! Sexy scenes were indescribably off the charts hot!ย 

๐ŸŒชCliffhanger Warning-๐ŸŒช๐ŸŒชBecause we have another book coming, the final book in the series, Greek. , there are several storylines that do not see resolution in this book. If you have not started this seriesโ€ฆ WHAT IN THE HECK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!

Meet Kandi


Kandi Steiner is a 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, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Vicious Little Snakes Release Blitz & Review



Vicious Little Snakes by Trilina Pucci is now live!




Prep school has never been so scandalous.

Caroline Whitmore is cunning, inconsiderate, and ruthless.


Despite that, I can’t recall a day when I haven’t thought about her at least once. On paper, we’re a perfect match–Only on paper.
ย 
In real life, we’re a disaster.
She hates me. Hates the way I dress–everything I say.
My basic existence.
ย 
But what I hate is more complicated.

Because I’m a moth to a gorgeous, petite, brunette flame.
ย 
I hateย that I still remember what she wore the day we sat together in sixth grade.ย 
And that I would move mountains for her smile.
ย 
I hateย every guy that gets too close.
And that one of them gets to stay.
ย 
I hateย that I want her so bad that I used my best friend to make her jealous.
But most of all, I hate that Caroline Whitmore is the one that got away.

My Review

Not gonna lie, my friends…Hillcrest Prep series is a total addiction for me and Liam Brooks OWNS me!! He won me over in Filthy Little Pretties. There was just something about him that pushed him into my number one Trilina Pucci book boyfriend spot.ย  Liam and his journey to HEA with his oh so magically delicious mean girl.

Is completely unforgettable, excitingly unputdownable and at times frustrating yet still so phenomenal and fabulously written. This is a must read for all fans of frenemies to lovers, brothers best friends,ย  and second chance romances. Itโ€™s legit the perfect combination of everything you could possibly want, mixed with things you didnโ€™t even know you needed. Yet… Trilina gave them to you in ways so good you will never forget this book!ย 

So, what can I say about Liam and Caroline without giving anything away?! Well theyโ€™re two drop dead gorgeous folks, Iโ€™m talking pretty enough to make you cry with their modelish good looks and sex appeal. They ooze confidence. They simultaneously reign over their minions leaving them both terrified and envious of this delicious duo. They lash out with lethal tongues verbally bringing the smack down to anyone who dare cross them. But ultimately only each other has the ability to hurt the other one. Because really only the people you love the most can cut you deepest with just their words. Oh how I cried over this. It was devastating the heartbreak they put each other through to protect themselves and each other from heartache. What a conundrum right! You hurt your person, your ride or die, because you know you will hurt them in the end. Huh! Wow!  Try to figure that one out! 

While maybe for a millisecond I might have been tempted to tell  olโ€™ Caroline to get on her diamond encrusted broomstick and fly back to her mansion, from very early on I felt like we needed more information about this mean, yet misunderstood princess, and WE GOT IT!! AI really loved how this author allowed us to discover little by little their history and why Caroline was the way she was. And Liamโ€ฆ well he had issues of his own. The way these complex characters had their revelations and grew from them into the characters they became. Oh my heart. It was perfect. They were fantastically flawed. Perfectly imperfect actually. Better together. 

This book wasnโ€™t just a story, it was a journey an experience, and it was one I wonโ€™t soon forget. I will look back on these characters with fondness and a love for all the pieces of them. The broken and the healed. The mean and forgiven. The snobby and the  humbled. This is everything I love about books and reading and life changing characters overcoming the obstacles to be with their one inevitable love. 

โ€œYouโ€™re my Love-a-Lot.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ˜ญ

Trust me when I say READ THIS BOOK. Please! You will need tissues๐Ÿ˜ญ, wine ๐Ÿท , maybe some chocolate. ๐Ÿซ You will laugh and probably also want to throw your kindle. (Donโ€™t actually throw it though). But whatever you do, read it. K?!

Her Reluctant Husband Release Blitz & Review

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅHOT NEW RELEASE๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

HER RELUCTANT HUSBAND by Erica Marselas is LIVE!

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

My Review

OMG!! OKAY! I am positively sure this just took the spot as my number one favorite Holly Renee book and now I am on pins and needles for book 2. I need it like I need air, like a fat girl needs cake, like a drifter lost at sea with no horizon in sight. I need to be put out of my misery because I just fell in Insta love, to hate, in lust, back in love then to heartbreak. All that magic in the span of the few hours it took me to devour this fantasticness.

This book was a literary bouquet of all the things I love about reading. I couldnโ€™t contain my butterflies during their first chance meeting. Then Holly went and turned it up and all that enemies to lovers golden goodness started pouring out and shredded my poor heart. ๐Ÿ’”Beck and Josieโ€™s story is addictive and woo hoo, GLORY B, itโ€™s not done being told. I am so not ready to let them go. ๐Ÿค—From page one my fate was sealed and I was OBSESSED with this story. GAH!! I got it bad for my boy Beck.

Holly crafted the most perfectly phenomenal star crossed enemies to lovers tale filled with secrets, lies, and deception at the hands of the wealthy, elite, and entitled youths of this gorgeous seaside town. I have a feeling book one has just barely scratched the surface of all Holly is planning to throw at us and I for one canโ€™t wait! This was unputdownable. Fair warning this book does end on a cliffhanger but itโ€™s so frustratingly good. 

Cr8zysock  Breaks it down for y’all!  

Six โญ๏ธ โญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธโญ๏ธ Sinfully dark and Swoony Stars! This book full wealth, power, and privilege, sex, lies and mystery! It has IT ALL! 

๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅBeck and Josie are hotter than the seventh circle of Hades. Hotter than a cast iron skillet straight out of the oven. So really freakin Hot Yโ€™all!

๐ŸŒช THAT CLIFFY THOUGH, yโ€™all๐ŸŒช I am so wondering whatโ€™s going to happen?!

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.

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 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

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 wasnโ€™t the rich kid who lived in the giant house, he wasnโ€™t the most popular guy in school, he certainly wasnโ€™t the bully who had chased his own best friend out of town after a falling outโ€”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 couldnโ€™t. I saw someone hurting and wanted to help. I saw someone possibly in danger and wanted to make sure he was safe.
Thereโ€™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 wasnโ€™t what he showed me.
The bond we formed was real. I know it was real. But with Hunter, when the tides turn, youโ€™d better hope youโ€™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 didnโ€™t know, but now I do.
Once Hunter sets his sights on you, thereโ€™s no such thing as out of his reach. Whether itโ€™s today, tomorrow, or five years from now, heโ€™s coming for meโ€”and when he does, he wonโ€™t stop until heโ€™s destroyed me.

EXCERPT

โ€œYou 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.โ€

I know heโ€™s only ragging on me, but I scoff at him anyway. โ€œPlease. Iโ€™d never babysit a guy. My mom taught me better than that. If you like Valerie, thereโ€™s no way you like me. If you donโ€™t like me, thenโ€”โ€
He stands just as abruptly as I did, moving so close heโ€™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 canโ€™t think straight when he stands so close to me.
โ€œThen what?โ€ 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 heโ€™s affecting me.
โ€œDonโ€™t torture me, Hunter.โ€
โ€œThis isnโ€™t what it feels like to be tortured by me, Catnip.โ€
