Stealing Cinderella Release Blitz & Review

Title: Stealing Cinderella
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: April 2, 2020
Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me. 
It should have been simple. 
Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity. 
But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected. 
He was dark and intense and eerily quiet. 
When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin. 
He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again. 
Then he came for me. 
And he took me. 
And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived. 
He’s the crown prince of Norway. 
And, now, I’m his captive.

My Review

Holy Sinister Diamond-Studded Slippers!! This retelling was Phe-nom-enal! A.Zavarelli took classic Cinderella and put a modern, sinister, dark, dirty, and deviously-delicious twist on it. She tossed in lots of heartbreaking elements and unexpected moments that hit me right in my feelings and I couldn’t put this book down! It.Was.Fantastic! 

Thorsen Lykken is no ordinary Prince Charming. Tragic events from his past made him the man he is. The reputation he’s earned as an intensely dark and secretive man is an understatement for what truly lies inside this beautifully troubled man. When he meets Ella he is immediately captivated by her innocence and beauty, he’s drawn to her in a way that he’s never been to anyone. He has to have her, so he takes her.

He’s dealing with personal issues and finding it hard to struggle with the balance of conflicts going on inside him. He’s never really dealt with women on his own. However he finds himself very dominant and protective over her where others are concerned. What I loved the most about his character was the amazing transformation we saw. I mean this man was night and day, from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Ella was the beautiful and innocent girl living a pretty sad existence. Walking around with the burden of your fathers death on your shoulders and then being abused and mistreated for years by the only other family you have left, had to have been devastating for her. Finding solace at the animal sanctuary near her home. A one night reprieve gifted to her in the form of an invitation to a ball leads to a chance meeting with Prince Thorsen Lykken that will change her life forever. 

There are many things that happen after which I won’t go into detail so as not to give spoilers. But ultimately those will inevitably end with her ending up at Thorsen’s estate in Norway. Given all that she goes through in the days surrounding her arrival at Prince Thorsen’s estate I found her character to be resilient and tough and just the balance he needed to his rude and rough. Instead of doing what we all expected she did the opposite, she was so loving and caring and couldn’t help but want to fix this broken man, and fell for him hard core in the process. 

“I think I know deep in my soul this is a suicide mission. He’ll never be able to love me back.”

I love this story because it’s such a story of transformation and healing. Now, it’s all kids of devious and dirty and twisted and unexpected and I love that. But I love that the Thorsen we meet in the beginning is not the Thorsen of the end. I love the journey these two broken people went on together. Their love healed each other. It was emotional and angsty and just all around a wonderfully awesome addition to the Sinister Fairytales collection.

My Review

This book crushed my soul before it put me back together. 😭 Every single feeling I have was obliterated before this book was done. But I couldn’t stop reading it! I had to know what was going to happen, from page to page. The twists, the angst, the moments of pure despair. The sensual and sweet and funny and lighthearted. All of it! I never wanted it to end ,but I couldn’t wait to get to the end to see how it ended! GAH! 

This is the story of Donovan, Grey and Liam. Three rich best friends from elite and powerful families who’s friendship will be tested in the ultimate way. One beautiful girl, two gorgeous guys, both different in many ways, but also the same in their life’s mission to protect love and care for her. She loves them both,  but only one can truly hold all of her heart, and the other will be left standing with his heart in his hand. There is only one that can and will be able to truly own her mind, body, heart and soul. Which one will it be Grey McCallister or Liam Brooks? 

“First, Last and Only! “

Grey and Liam are two best friends as close as brothers. They are always number one and two. They will do anything and give up anything for the other, except when it comes to Donovan. For the first time in their lives they each found something he wasn’t willing to sacrifice for his best friend. They both also knew ultimately who was the best man for her, but would the other step aside and let “him” be the one to go after her? 

“Every girl has one—the crush who set the standard. I just have two.”

The struggling was real y’all and raw and oh my gosh. My heart felt it every time one lashed out in hurt or punishment towards another. I felt it down to my bones. That’s how much I fell for these characters. There are places where you feel like it’s slice after slice to an artery and just when you think you couldn’t possibly bleed more. Trilina patches you back up all perfectly in the end. I promise these characters are gonna stick with you long after you have clicked that Kindle off. 

I refuse to give anything specific details of this story away because to do so would be such a disservice to both this brilliant author and to you the reader. It is sure to be one of my top reads this year. This was my first read by Trilina Pucci and I’m amazed and awed by her attention to every single detail and emotion she was able to capture in the book and evoke in me as a reader. While this may have been my first read of hers I can assure you this will not be my last. If you are fans of friends-to-lovers/Love triangles with a touch of bully romance, and you also happen to love twists, angst, frustration and shockingly frustrating moments. This is the book for you! 

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- This book had me from paragraph one. I was unable to put this book down. I was in it y’all. I had to know what was going to happen, how this would play out. My heart needed to know. My poor feels needed to know. I FLOVE VAN, GREY, AND LIAM! ! This is so much bigger than a Five Star Read. 👆🏻(See that extra star) 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-As far as actual,  get full on busy it’s a slow burn with tons of licious tension! There is one scene fairly early that is holy hella hot!! But then you have to wait a minute for another BUT it’s so worth the wait! Good gracious is it with it!Hot dang! 🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! After you are turned upside down and inside out and every which a way around you get a HEA Ending!

Blurb:
I only had one rule: don’t fall in love with the cruel prince.

I broke it.

When the clock struck twelve, I went back to being a servant. He promised to let me go with my heart in pieces…but Grayson Crowne was always king at breaking promises.

I refuse to let him lock me in a tower.

I have no choice but to take the only out offered to me–another cruel prince.

Refuge in a man I loathe.

Rescued from the man I love.

I wanted to forget Grayson, forget Crowne Hall, and hide, but fate has other plans.

But if Grayson and I are fated, then our fate is forbidden.

Our happily ever after will only end one way…in heartbreak.

 

 

About the Author:
I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

My Review

EEP!!! OMG y’all! Butterflies, this book gave me butterflies🦋 and goosebumps! 😍 So, Harlow Layne is MY Queen of 👑 Reverse Age Gap! Hello!! Intern and now The Model! GAH! My heart is so happy, y’all! (She put it through the ringer though. Lol) 

This book is like the perfect unexpected present, it will give you everything you are yearning for and things you didn’t even know you wanted or needed. 🙌🏻 From the second you crack the first page it will keep you hanging on every word. Through dramatic sweet and swoony , to unexpected moments of suspense, Ryder and Lexie’s journey is the most phenomenal rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I stressed, I swooned, I fell so hard for the sexy, sweet and so perfectly matched for each other adorable Ryder and his blue haired beauty, Lexie. BTW ladies,  He’s mine just letting y’all know now! I will share him with Lexie, cause she’s my girl, but nobody else. This cougar’s claiming him! 😏

I’ve got a girl crush!! I FLOVE This woman y’all! 💙 Lexie is this amazingly talented photographer. She’s gorgeous and unique with her blue hair, piercings and tattoos. She’s like a pinup that has no idea she is a pinup. So basically… Lexie is licious, people!!

She is a loving friend, sweet, sassy, independent and successful. When she meets Ryder she is blown away by this amazing man. He is legit EVERYTHING! He did things to her body she didn’t even know were possible. 

She’s had a rough go as of late and it only gets worse before it gets better. Everything with Ryder seemed like they are perfect for each other in so many ways, but will Lexie let insecurities and the stress of her past get in the way of the chance at a future it’s Ryder? When life throws Lexie a curveball how will she respond, and will this change her mind on the decisions she’s made about her future with Ryder? 

Ryder is this phenomenally hot model. He’s sweet and young and fun-loving. But he’s also very mature and polite, he loves his mama and just wants to secure a better financial future for himself and his parents. This guy may be young but he’s far from a kid. This guy is all alpha man. He’s dirty and dominant in the bedroom, and sweet and the perfect gentleman outside. AHHH! Yes, he’s that Yummy of a combo, ladies. And his heart belongs to his “sexy Lexie” or at least he hopes to give her his heart. When Ryder lays his heart on the line for Lexie will she take it, or are there too many miles, years, beautiful models and oceans between them? 

There are most definitely many obstacles that she and Ryder 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 y’all! But more than that, their emotional connection. I love how Harlow has this ability to write the most amazingly beautifully connected couples. There is always something a little unconventional about her couples. Whether it be life circumstances, appearances, or age difference, she always manages to shock us in some way. 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. But their love always manages to  transcend whatever life throws their way, cause her characters are strong, resilient and above all they LOVE BIG and love should always win!!

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐- Harlow had me from paragraph one. Ryder and Lexie are ultimate couple goals. Age really is nothing but a number. I love her best friend Raine and am eternally grateful for the Ty and Sadie visit 😍😍I FLOVE THEM! 

This is so much bigger than a Five Star Read. 👆🏻(See that extra star) 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-There are not enough words in the dictionary to adequately describe the level of hotness🔥🔥 that you are gonna get with Ryler and Lexie’s love scenes!! 🔥🥵🔥 This is most definitely a Panty Chucker Y’all! (Yup you don’t need em’) 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! *insert sigh of contentment and happiness*🥰 #EndingPerfection

Sweet Little Bitch eBook

Fiona

I had never asked for a break. It had been a small request for space so I could think. Just some time to reflect and search myself. Loving Marty had never been the problem. It was the word marriage that haunted me.

In the end, none of it mattered.

Marty proved to be exactly what I feared. Unfaithful. And he’d fooled me, not once, but twice.

There sure as hell wouldn’t be a third time.

Marty

Three long years and the sight of her still feels like electricity jolting me awake from a sleep I didn’t realize I was in. Even with plenty of time to mentally prepare for this, being near Fiona reminded me what I’d never managed to find in another woman.

Even if she was crazy as hell. A mixture of hot, cold, funny, brutal all wrapped into a fucking gorgeous package.

When I left town, I was getting away from any memories of her. Protecting myself the only way I could.

But my twin brother and her half-sister were tying the knot. Unlike us, Shay and Mack could claw each other’s eyes out one minute and be madly in love the next.

Making it through this wedding weekend was all Mack asked of me. I could do it. I had to.

Even if it took all the whiskey in Savannah.

Fiona wouldn’t break me.

Not again.

OF Cover Final.png

It’s a man’s world.

When I declared sports medicine as my major and every man narrowed their eyes, that saying proved true. It was true when my ex-husband decided I’d give up my career when our daughter was born. And again when I divorced the Chief of Police in our small town, and he made it painfully clear that I could leave him, but I would never be free.

Landing the job as the new athletic trainer for Stratford’s high school team is my chance to start over. And walking into a male-dominated sport and staff, I’m ready for the challenge.

I’m not ready for Jordan Becker.

The head coach of our championship winning team is a Herculean force of nature—as severe as he is determined. His icy blue eyes and permanent scowl drive the women in this town mad, and his quiet power and undeniable command conjure respect from every man.

When I join his team, I expect the doubt and anticipate the fight from him. And I get them both.

I don’t expect to form a friendship.

And I never expect to fall for him.

My breath catches when those cool eyes fall to my lips. My body comes alive when his is near. And as those lines begin to blur, every warning bell sounds.

My job, my reputation are on the line.

And my ex is around every corner, waiting to remind me of his power.

It’s a man’s world, and if I want to survive, I can never fall in love with Jordan Becker.

Even if he falls in love with me first.

My Review

O-M-G guys! This ending to the Becker Boys Series could not have been more perfect! If you told me I had to pick a favorite Becker boy, I’m not sure I could do that either, they are all so different and precious and just so loveable in their own ways. This beautiful angsty love story was one I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Jordan Becker’s story was last , BUT certainly not least. 

Jordan Becker is EVERYTHING! He’s the most amazing football coach, brother, son and person. He is loving and caring and just has this special way about him. He meets his match in Sydney Clark, in every way. She challenged him in ways he didn’t know he needed challenging and was everything he didn’t know was missing from his life and more. For so much of his life Jordan didn’t know exactly where he fit, but he fit with Sydney and her daughter, Paige. Their relationship was precious and it warmed my heart as much as it made me smile. Paige was adorable and funny and I couldn’t get enough of her with Jordan. 

Sydney had been through the ringer, her history while heartbreaking made her the strongest most amazing woman and mother. I was pushing dm for her and Jordan because they just needed each other, they deserved each other. Even when they didn’t know it. I could say so many things about this woman but I don’t want to spoil anything. So I will just say, She.is.phenomenal! 

RBTeaser.png

It was fantastic to have all my Becker’s back together to wrap up this series. So many unanswered questions and prayers finally come to fruition for this precious family. I will just say, Y’ALL, this girl cried. I cried for the end of something that had become so precious to me. For the closure I needed in the most  perfect of ways. Kandi gave me everything I longed for. The Epilogue, GAAHH! I couldn’t be a happier girl! This series is LIFE! Grab it today. 😍🔥🙌🏻🥃😍🔥🙌🏻🥃

 My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️-Must Read Series! Becker’s are one of my all time favorite Book families!! This book had it all, banter for days and off the charts swoony and sexy time, angst galore. All the Becker’s were back in town! 

🔥 🔥🔥🔥- Jordan and Sydney were fire y’all. They were like the delicious burn of a good whiskey, they were straight up yummy! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-HEA. No cliffy! This ending was perfection!🙌🏻🥰😍😘🙌🏻

About 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 diehard 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.

Who says you can’t marry the same mistake twice?

Liam Watts is the bane of her existence.
Her first love. Father of her child. And breaker of her heart.

Oh, he’s also her ex-husband. Well, he was, anyway…right up til this morning, when she woke up beside him in a Vegas hotel room, sheathed in satin and tulle with a sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach.

If it were just between the two of them, an annulment would be the obvious solution. After all, they wouldn’t be the first to marry and divorce at the little white chapel in the span of twenty-four hours.

But their daughter’s greatest wish has just been granted, and if there’s one heart Nya wants to protect more than her own, it’s Ellie’s.

So, she promises to give it six months.

There’s no way she’ll be swayed by his thick southern drawl, those well-defined abs, or that annoyingly delectable scruff lining his cheeks.

Nope. She’s got it all under control. Six months of playing house, then everything can go back to the way it was before.

But first she’ll have to muddle through marriage with Liam—take two.

My Review

This is the best y’all!! Heather O. does it again! Perfection People! This book is utter perfection! 

Oh the laughter, the banter, the frustration! The deliciously sexy throwdowns! THIS was the combination of everything I was hoping for and as ALWAYS Heather delivers! 

Nya Perez is this sassy, beautiful Latina and I love her fierce determination to resist her irresistible ex, err…well no longer ex-husband. 

Waking up unexpectedly married to her ex-husband, Liam Watts was the last thing she expected the morning after their daughter’s birthday. But not one to be able to disappoint her girl, and at the peer pressure of both Liam And her BFF, Hannah she reluctantly agrees to give the marriage the ol college try for six months. But only for their daughter, right? She can resist Liam’s charms for six months. Prove they are NOT meant for each other and kick his good lookin, texan accent talkin, perfect ab havin, sweet gentlemanly, sexy scruff wearin’ butt to the curb, and go back to the way think are. No problem… right? 

Liam Watts has regretted the way this went wrong between him and Nya for years. When life, fate, birthday wishes and a few too many drinks hands him this second chance, you had better believe he is taking it. When Nya gave him a six month timeline , that was as good as issuing a challenge for this cowboy. 

Deep down Liam knows he messed up, but he has never stopped loving Nya and he knows she has never stopped loving him. He has six months to prove their inevitable connection is supposed to last forever, NOT have an expiration date. He’s not above using whatever he can find in his arsenal to help his cause. AKA that sexy, irresistible smile, or those cowboy abs of steel. He’s ready to throw down wherever and whenever!!

GAAHH! I love this hilarious character y’all! He was so funny, and sweet and caring and oh my god, this man with his daughter. Women everywhere want to make babies with him, ASAP! He was gorgeous, sensitive and sweet, but funny and hot and dirty too. He had a Texas drawl for goodness sakes. Yeah! So in he walks and Panties just drop! 

But will all that swagger sway Nya his way for good this time? 

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️-Another fabulous romantic comedy by Heather. She is absolutely one of my top favorites when I need the perfect “swunexy” book (yes I just made that up folks) swunexy= swoony, funny, and sexy! This had the best characters(All of them, secondary too), banter for days and off the charts swoony and sexy times. This is a MUST READ!  

🔥 🔥🔥🔥-  Liam and Nya are just straight up hotter than biscuits and gravy. Hot as a match on hay in a barn stall. Yup, that.freakin.hot. Like the devil is jealous of the heat, y’all! 😈

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA. No cliffy!!It is perfect! 🙌🏻🥰😍😘🙌🏻

Blurb: She was never supposed to walk into my club. But she did. I shouldn’t have looked twice at her. But I did. The criminal underworld is no place for a girl like her. One night with Katerina isn’t enough, but men like me can’t afford to be weak. So, I tell her to leave me behind. She does, but not before she sees something she shouldn’t. When she goes into hiding, it’s my duty to hunt her down. I have a job to do, and she needs to disappear for good. But four years later, Kat isn’t alone anymore. And the little boy right beside her looks just like me. Mine is book one of The Ties That Bind, an all-new dark mafia romance from A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight.

My Review

WOW, my friends! I did a super squeal of excitement when this hit my kindle. I knew from the blurb and the fact that it was written by an amazingly talented duo like A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight, that we were in for greatness. I was not disappointed. This book is dark, raw, sinister and gritty. It will grab you from the very beginning with this phenomenal combination of unbelievably hot tension and edge of your seat suspense. Get ready to be simultaneously fanning yourself and frustrated. 

Levka Antonov was both her Prince Charming and her Villian. He was gorgeous and god like with his power. He was as delicious as he was dangerous. He was feared! When he wanted something he got it, and he decided that he wanted Katerina to be his “Katya.” They hit it off and it was everything more than even he could have predicted! He knew she was hiding things but he had ways of getting to the bottom of it and he would find out exactly who and what she was hiding.

When something in his business goes down and Katerina disappears, Lev is both concerned and angry at her for disappearing. There are a lot of speculations and distrust surrounding her from his Family business associates, will he abide by the orders he’s given when her location is discovered after a few years? However, will an unexpected secret game changing curveball Katerina has been carting with her for three years, throw a monkey wrench in all of Lev’s plans? Just how exactly will Lev punish her?

“I’m taking back what’s Mine”

Katerina Blake was a beautiful broken and poor young woman,  but she’s hiding a troubled and scarred past beneath first glance. One no one could even imagine. She was such a strong and resilient character. I loved her so much. My heart broke for the little girl she’d been and what she endured as a child, but it fist pumped at the strong kick ass woman she’d become. Now, when she met Lev, it was a collision of hotness y’all. Good god!

Their chemistry was overwhelming. She was strong but he brought out a submissive side to her that she didn’t know existed, holy hell! 🔥 She would do anything he said. She fell hard and fast, understandably so. But when a devastating tragic event happens and he is to blame on the same day she finds out life changing news. She must do what she needs to protect more than just herself.

She could have cowered but she didn’t. She did what she had to. She is the kind of character I FLOVE, my friends! She goes through all the emotions and through such growth as a character and it makes for such an amazing read. You get to see her at her lowest then go to seeing her in her most protective and survival mode. She.is.just.fantastic! 🙌🏻😍🙌🏻

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- This book is all you could want in a Mafia/Second Chance/Secret Baby Romance. It captured everything I was looking for and more. 

It was so full of secrets, lies, action. It was full of suspense, angst, GAH the sex! My heart was on edge the whole time! 💔 Everything going on, fabulous!! These characters are fantastic and complex and I’m dying for “Him”

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! Their encounters were SO.FREAKIN.HOT!! Lev is Alpha AF and made Katerina submit in the hottest of ways. Fanning and dying, fanning and dying🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- 🌪🌪🌪HOLY CLIFFHANGER! You will NOT get resolution in this book! Book two is coming!! 😳🤯😳🤯

WITHOUT YOU Release Blitz & Review

Title: Without You
Author: Marley Valentine
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2020 Cover Design: PopKitty Design Photographer: Wander Aguiar Models: Jacob Cooley & Luke Schaeffer
“Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.”
Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.
Until everything changed. 
Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be. 
Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed. 
Not on another person.
Not on another man.
Not until him.

My Review

Oh Y’all!! So, I was super excited for this book. I was thinking GAH I mean you can read the blurb and it pretty much sounds like this book is gonna be all kinds of forbidden goodness right? But my friends,  this book, this fantastic, beautifully epic book, was beyond any and all expectations I could have ever even imagined. The feelings and emotional journey Marley will send  you on with this book is soul-stirring and powerful. The way this book will grab your heart on the first page, AHH😭 I’m just never going to be the same. 

Broken-hearted, defeated and devastated. Deacon and Julian have a story that will both decimate and then heal your heart and soul. This is a poignantly powerful story about the love and healing they found in each other. It was about two broken souls recognizing their perfect counterparts in the most unlikely of places, at the most inopportune time. The kind of inevitable love that even though it went against logic and reason, what should and shouldn’t have drawn them to one another bond them in ways neither could have ever expected.

There was something cathartic when they were together, it was as if all was right in the world, it’s why they had to be meant for each other. They way they could tap into what the other so desperately needed at that moment and to be just that. 

I’m a firm believer that there is something to be said about the after effects of what happens to you after a book absolutely, utterly wrecks you. That cleansing feeling that only comes after you have bawled and sobbed until your huffing and snotty( not pretty but it happens) But when all is said and done and your author has broken you into a million pieces, you have cried all the tears until you have none left to cry, and she’s put you back together, you sigh and know that everything is as it’s supposed to be. She did it! She broke you, and she put you back together. Now, you do know you won’t be 100 percent the same, because long after these characters will stick with you, because that’s what those types of books do.THIS is one of those books, Deacon and Julian will be here in my heart long after I finished this book. Their story is the ultimate story of where love triumphs all, love wins. Love is EVERYTHING! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐-  I urge you to please take a chance on this book. If you never tried a MM or if MM isn’t your usual genre give this a go. Marley Valentine is a master and you will find yourself so caught up in this amazing love story you won’t care or it won’t matter whether it’s MM or MF it’s just a tragically beautiful love story. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-It is hot!! 🔥 There is so much temptation and at first the try to fight it between them, that it can’t help but to be off the charts hot?!?! Yup, so so  HOTT!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA 😍♥️😍

Marley Valentine comes from the future. Living in Sydney, Australia with her family. When she’s not busy writing her own stories, she spends most of her time immersed in the words of her favourite authors.

FOOL ME ONCE RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW




Title: Fool Me Once
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2020

Blurb

I met Keegan when I was on the beach in Florida.
He literally crashed into my world.
I wasn’t looking for romance, but his two-dimpled charm made my heart go haywire.

We both had one thing in common: we were here to escape our realities.
One week. Just the two of us. Not a care in the world.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that week would forever change my life.

Four years later, and as fate would have it, Keegan and I are brought together again.
It’s as if the universe is telling us this is our second chance.
The more I get to know him, the harder I fall.
Falling hopelessly in love is inevitable with a man like him.

Only the joke’s on me, because the guy I’m falling for isn’t the man I thought he was.
You know how the saying goes: Fool me once…
I’ll be damned if I’m fooled again.

My Review

Swoon Y’all! I seriously Swooned, my heart fluttered. Every.Single.Time. Keegan was near my heart just melted people.  Blakely tried and failed to resist his charms. He was just so mouthwateringly perfect and she’d been through so much but she was beautiful, tough and sweet. GAH! I loved these two.😍 He was the distraction she needed, something good for her,  for once. He changed her life that week, her sisters life in ways they never could have predicted, but it was for the better. 

The precious secret baby, second chance romance will grab you from page one and not let you go till the very end. It’s full of unexpected twists and turns. Lots of sweet and sexy moments, as well as laugh out loud moments. Get ready to fall in love with 

Keegan, Blakely, Zane and the rest of the crew in this amazing story.  Told in dual POV with a perfectly Heart melting HEA you don’t miss this must read by Nikki Ash. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐1/2-  I’m a sucker for a good second chance romance. Throw in a secret baby and I’m a goner, y’all! This was so good! I’m claiming Keegan as my current book boyfriend. I mean how sexy is his name right?!  This couple was just magic together and I flew through their story. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! They are hotter than a beach 🏖 in Florida in the middle of summer! Yeah! That hot, my friends! 🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFHANGER! I love this kind of HEA folks! 😍♥️😍






Excerpt

Just as I’m turning the page in my book, someone yells, “Watch out!” Unsure of where the voice is coming from, I look to the left and then to the right, but before I can grasp what’s happening, the circular object hits my hand, and my book flies out of my grasp and into the water.
“Shit! I’m so sorry.” A half-naked guy comes running over, sand kicking up around him as his strong legs pound into the ground. The closer he gets, the more of him I’m able to see, and holy shit, do I like what I see. Messy brown hair I could picture running my fingers through, tanned, smooth skin I would enjoy kissing and licking, and if I’m feeling frisky, biting.
My eyes rake over his tattooed, sculpted chest and down to his abs. Two-four-sex… I mean six. God damn! Look at that six-pack. He must work out, probably several times a day. Damn, I’d love for him to work me out…
As he jogs over, his corded arm muscles flex, making it appear as if the ink on his arms is coming alive, and I briefly imagine holding on to those arms while he fucks me good and hard. He runs past me, and I follow his every move. When he bends over, I check out his butt that’s hidden under his low-hanging board shorts as I fantasize about my legs wrapped around his waist and my heels digging into that butt…
But then he turns around, and in his hands is the now sopping wet copy of Wuthering Heights, and I instantly snap out of my lust-filled thoughts.
“Here you go,” he says sheepishly, the soaking wet book dangling from his fingers. Drops of saltwater fall down and land on my knee. My eyes meet his, and just as I’m about to snap at him, the corner of his mouth lifts into a nervous smile, and a single dimple pops out on his cheek, and once again, I’m momentarily distracted by just how good-looking he is.
“Thanks so much.” My reply drips with sarcasm. Taking the book from him, I examine the saturated, ruined pages, and mumble, “At least it wasn’t my mom’s copy.”
“I’m Keegan.” His half-smile turns into a cocky grin. Oh, hell, no…
“I’m not interested.” 
He throws his head back with the most beautiful laugh I’ve ever heard. It’s raspy and deep and sexy. My eyes land on his Adam’s apple, and my tongue darts out, wanting to lick down his throat.
“Fair enough.” He nods. “I really am sorry about the book.” His gorgeous forest green eyes meet mine. “Can I do something to make it up to you?”
“Like sleep with me?” I give him a playful smirk. I haven’t slept with many guys, but I’ve had a couple one-night stands over the last few years. My way of lashing out over my mom’s death.
“No.” He shakes his head. “We’ve already established you’re not interested. Although, I think, based on the way you were eye-fucking me on my way over here, I could probably convince you otherwise.”
