Warrior Blue Review & Release Blitz

📗BLURB📗

Blake Carson can’t afford to have a life. Between working full-time as a tattoo artist and caring for his disabled twin brother Jacob, his plate is more than full – and he prefers it that way.

But his meticulous planning is turned on its head when he meets the upbeat and beautiful Audrey Wright and her butterfly tattoo.

Now, through a complicated maze of coincidence and fate, Blake begins to question if maybe there could be more to his life than just work and Jacob.

That is, if the guilt doesn’t eat him alive first.

With the help of Dr. Vanessa Travetti and a girl he doesn’t think he deserves, can Blake convince himself that even the bad guy deserves a happy ending?

My Review

Oh Guys. I can’t even!😍😭 It’s almost indescribable the emotions this book brought out in me. It was completely unexpected. I love Kelsey Kingsley’s writing, but I will be honest and say for me I have so much more love and feelings about this book than I could ever even begun to have predicted. Blake and Audrey’s story is one that will stick with me in the back of my mind and heart  for weeks and months maybe even years to come. 

Blake Carson has to be one of my most favorite book boyfriends ever. He is damaged and broken in ways I couldn’t possibly fathom. His life revolves around his amazing yet disabled twin brother, Jacob “Jake” and his job as a talented tattoo artist, with a talent so far out of the realm of what he realizes. He’s amazing really, but Blake is a walking bag of culpability and self loathing. He blames himself for something that happened as a child and for that feels he is undeserving of any of the good things life has to offer. The only bright spot in his life is Jake. Jake is a bright spot and a responsibility, Jake is his life and his future and he bases everything and ever decision on the impact it will have on Jake. 

I’m in love with Blake, his character, the love he has for his brother literally melted my heart into a puddle of goo over and over again. The way he handled him. GAAHHH!! Words almost fail me here. I want to be able to describe the transformation Blake’s character had over the course of this book without giving anything away but it would be impossible and also a disservice to the readers experience of getting it like I did, which was to go in not knowing what you are in for. The way Blake and Audrey couldn’t be more different was almost comical but this amazing woman brought this man everything he didn’t know he needed. 

Audrey… y’all this woman. Her story was devastatingly heartbreaking , yet full of hope and faith and fate. It was everything. This woman in her pastel and preppy clothes with her all black wearin’ tattooed alpha-hole. I couldn’t get enough. The way she was with Blake’s brother, Jake. Oh My Heart!! 😭♥️ She gave him glimpses of everything he didn’t know he was missing or even dreamed of and she gave him the strength to go for it. She helped him to examine things he’d been denying for many years. He just needed her. They were meant to be, long before they ever even met. 

This book had so many subtle fate, kismet, god, faith spiritual and I guess you could call it something or someone that’s no longer with us trying to tell you something, moments in it. It gave you this mysteriously magical feeling the whole time you read it. I didn’t know what was going to happen next, but I had feelings.No always good, but that was part of the emotional experience that was this book. This was not a short book by any means, but I literally devoured this book in less than twenty-four hours. I ignored all adulting and couldn’t do anything else. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN. I was addicted to Blake and Audrey and their journey. I was captivated every second. I cried until I felt like I had no tears left. I smiled until my face hurt, and my oldest daughter noticed and asked “ WTH is wrong with you? You’re smiling kinda creepy over there at nothing. Lol 😂 (I had to tell her I was reading and It was amazing) It left me warm and gooey and also terrified and irate at some moments. This is a book that will hit every emotion you have and not always with a gentle had. So yeah, Kelsey is gonna serve you up and emotion beat down. Then in the end she will give you a little hug, fix it all better and send you on your merry way. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐️-I just had to throw in a sixth star because this has already become one of my favorite reads of 2020. This book is full of drama, angst, forgiveness, faith and transformation. Holy cow it’s just so many things all in one. I loved these characters so much more that I can put into words. This book had it all . 

🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! HOLY HOT BISCUITS AND GRAVY !! Blake is just dirty and delicious AF!! Kelsey doesn’t typically do too explicit of  sexy scenes in the books of hers I have read (which I happen to really like explicit) However it doesn’t even bother me the lack of explicit details. This one is almost hotter in what’s not said. The build up y’all!! 🔥🔥It’s not really a fade-to-black IMO, but it’s not super descriptive either it’s just enough if that makes sense? It tells you what went down, so don’t worry. But it all it works so well it’s just amazingly hot, because Blake and Audrey are just hot as Holy Hell! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA! This ending was pure perfection!  Just… ahh! That good y’all! 😍😍

Excerpt

“Hey, Blake,” Audrey answered, a smile in her voice.

“Hey.”

“This is the second time you’ve called me in three days.”

“You’re keeping count?”

She scoffed lightheartedly. “Duh. I mean, I might be a grown woman, but deep down, I’m still a girl who has it pretty bad for this really hot guy.”

Blurb:
Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult novel from bestselling author, Ella Fields.

 

 

 

 

My Review

img_4744

Whenever Ella Fields releases a new book I feel like I have to stop the world, shut out everyone and do nothing but devote myself to the magic that is her words until I have devoured every morsel. This book, this amazingly angsty Step-brother/Forbidden/Second Chance Romance was no exception to that rule. It was emotionally wrecking and beautiful at the same time. It broke me before it put me back together again.

IMG_6515

Jackson and Willa were the ultimate experience of inevitable love. Everything about their journey will leave you breathless, in tears, and rooting for them to overcome all the obstacles before them. To ignore everything and everyone that could possibly stand in their way. Jackson the broody, beautiful boy that Willa isn’t supposed to love like that, but she does. Willa so sweet and gorgeous and Jackson isn’t supposed to touch her, but that didn’t stop him.

IMG_6513

“I feel like I need you to breathe properly.”

IMG_6514

When they’re discovered it brings a world of hurt down on them and the love they share is scandalized and made out to be wrong and vile and they are punished for it. When choices are made to protect one another it causes misunderstandings and starts a domino effect that spans years and miles between them. Can Jackson and Willa right their wrongs and find each other again or have they done irreparable damage to each other’s hearts?

IMG_6512

“In the battle of who hurt who the most, you fucking won, Willa.”

IMG_6510

Y’all this is a much read for fans of edge of your seat forbidden romance fans. That fear for your couple of if and when they will be found out. The heartbreaking moments when they hurt each other unknowingly. GAH!! This book and it’s frustrating “ I’m about to chuck this kindle at the wall” moments. The sensationally sexy moments between this couple that are so forbidden yet sweet, loving and delicious all at the same time. If you haven’t read Ella Fields yet you definitely want to start today. She never fails to hit you straight through the heart plowing through your poor feelings leaving you a devastated and broken mess before she perfectly pieces you back together in the end. You can count on a book hangover for days after one of her books.

My Review 

GAAHHHH!! My heart Y’all, my poor heart! It has legit been through the ringer with this book. I was dying waiting for the conclusion to this trilogy after I stopped breathing at the end of the last book. Dylan Allen and her gift with words had me sucked in, so entranced I was left devastated. I wasn’t willing to accept that this was the direction things were going for my Beth and Carter. Their journey was so emotionally insane but gripping and wonderful at the same time. It was an absolute necessity for them endure all they had to go through to become who they were by the end, and I loved them even more for that. The Carter and Beth you first meet in book one are not the Carter and Beth you leave at the end of book three. I love the kinds of stories that completely shatter me before putting me back together again. Dylan Allen is clearly a master of her craft because she did just that!!

Beth’s character probably saw the most growth of all. I love the strength she gained throughout the trilogy, but especially in book three. She’s strong and sassy and resilient. She’s become this empowering woman comfortable in her own skin, despite all the ways her upbringing tried to destroy her and it was inspiring. I wanted so badly for her to get revenge for everything bad that has ever happened to her. I wanted for her to get her guy and her HEA.

Carter, Holy flippin Hell I love this guy. Hot, so musically gifted it hurts. He this perfect blend of sweetness but dirty talking, bad boy, Alpha in the bedroom. It’s beyond seventh circle of Hades kinda hot. 🔥You just have to read it!! Even with his successes he couldn’t forget about Beth. He became what she knew he always could. She still owned his heart. He made some mistakes along the way while they were apart, but he was doing his best to right those wrongs.

The blow they had been dealt was impossible. To Carter ,Beth would always be the most beautiful woman in the world. She was everything to him, always had been, since he first saw her. The chemistry between Carter and Beth is off the charts hot,hot, hot!!
This is a must read trilogy for all the angst, heat, suspense, and twists!!

The Punk and the Plaything by B.B. Reid

Release Date: December 9, 2019

Punk Cover.jpg

The Punk and The Plaything, the third romantic standalone in the When Rivals Play series by B.B. Reid.

Never trust a nice ass and a smile. That girl is definitely poison.

When I first came to Blackwood Keep, I was just looking for a thrill.

Instead, I found a beautiful fraud—a tomboy my wildest dreams couldn’t conjure.

Bee didn’t just run with boys; she ran the boys. It was only a matter of time before I gave chase.

It took one summer for me to win her over and two to lose her forever.

My summer love turned ice queen. Without heart or thought, she ruined me.

Four years and an ocean between us, I still can’t forget that she chose my cousin…so I won’t.

My Review

So B.B. had totally it set up in the other books where I was absolutely, unequivocally NOT a Barbette ”Bee” fan. I would go as far as to say I despised her character. I didn’t like her friendship with Ever, I didn’t trust her, just didn’t care for her. I started opening up to her  a little in TMATF, but still. Now… I absolutely love, like fist pumps in the air rooting for her, she’s my new BFF. I’m a “Bee-liever”!

Gah!! Jamie, oh Jamie! His character has been one of my tops from day one. There is something about him. His playful personality, that don’t GAF attitude he puts off, when really he’s one of the most caring people out there. He’s giving off this players vibe and he’s borderline cruel to Bee,  but really he’s just protective of his heart and sweet gooey center, afraid he will be exposed to hurt and risk heartbreak again if he lets his guard down. 

“You kiss me with your cruel words and caress me with your pain.”

Told in alternating POV’s we go back and forth between their senior year of high school and their pre-teen years. We get in-depth looks into the what let Jamie and Bee to be the characters they are today. 

“It’s not your hate that kills me but the love I see shining through.”

It also gives us better understanding why Jamie feels the way he does, and we understand what it was like for Bette growing up and what led to some of the decisions that she and Ever made and why Four would have went along with them. We get to see the story of Jamie and Bee childhood friends falling in love and the hurts, secrets, misunderstandings and devastation that come after. BEE AND JAMIE ARE EVERYTHING! 

While I’m not going to give away any of the details of this book because #SpoilersSuck. I will say I’m pretty sure this one might be my favorite of all. Because…Jamie! Tattoos, piercings, attitude and heart. I mean hot dang, y’all! And Bee, she’s beautiful and sassy and sweet. She’s loving and as it turns out unselfish. This is one of my most favorite series. I cannot recommend it enough. If you haven’t started it. TODAY IS THE DAY! Pick up this Bully/Friends to Lovers Favorite. I would give it all the stars in the sky if I could. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐️- I have to add a sixth star for my blog rating cause I just gotta! This is like a Bully/ Friends to lovers romance all in one! Jamie is legit! He’s the most perfect book boyfriend. Tattoos and piercings. He’s just delicious! Plus all your favorite characters are back! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-Holy Hades!!Jamie and Bee are pure fire in the sheets! 🧨 Nuff said💥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! IFloved this!! #Perfection

Blog tour teaser.jpg

Excerpt: “Well, isn’t this the most delicious surprise.” My head confirmed what my eyes were showing me, but my stubborn heart still refused to believe. Jamie was back from Ireland? Why hadn’t Ever told me? Neither of those answers seemed to matter as much as why Jamie was back.

The short sleeves of the button up he wore were rolled and bunched at the shoulders, displaying the muscles he’d grown since I’d last seen him four years ago. The white cotton only pronounced his tanned skin. He’d left the buttons undone, allowing anyone who laid eyes on him to see his hard chest and defined abs…and the many tattoos that covered them. Most of them were angry and aggressive, almost scary as if he were showing off his demons for anyone to see. Recalling my sweet Jamie from long ago, and what happened the last time I’d seen him, I knew I was responsible for every one of them. Gone was the gentle boy next door with a full mop of hair, a lanky body, and an easy smile. This boy standing before me was darker, edgier…more tragic to my lonely, fragile heart. Was that yearning burning in the pit of my stomach or fear of the unknown? Because I didn’t know this Jamie, and judging by the wicked gleam in his eyes as he flashed that mocking grin, I didn’t want to know. “What the hell are you doing back here?” “Is that any way to greet your first love? I got to say”—his gaze slowly traced every dip and curve of my body—“I love how well you’ve grown up, Bette.” “First love?” I scoffed, even though it felt like he’d stolen my breath. “You were hardly that.” “Then what was I?” he challenged, backing me against the opposite wall. “I’m breathless to hear more of your lies.”

“You were nothing.” He flashed me that sad, beautiful smile I hadn’t realized I’d missed so much. I stood perfectly still as his wolfish gaze ate me up. As close as he stood now, he wouldn’t miss a single fucking flaw. There were many, but no one dared looked close enough to see. I might as well have been Medusa. As he ran his gaze over me, I took the time to study him as well, noting the silver bar piercing his right brow and the small diamond in his right nostril. I could have sworn I’d even glimpse a flash of metal piercing his nipples. Jamie had taken all that sinful deliciousness he naturally possessed and multiplied it by ten thousand. As if the world didn’t already have enough injustices. “You’re so beautiful. Did it hurt?” He kept his gaze on me as he turned his head and blew out smoke. “Did what hurt?” I could feel the heat from Jamie’s cigarette when he defiantly brushed his thumb across my bottom lip. To Jamie’s knowledge, I belonged to his cousin now, but he clearly didn’t give a damn. “When you fell from heaven, Satan.” I slapped his hand away while telling myself to get a grip. Jamie might have surprised me, but he was nothing I couldn’t handle. “Get lost, Jameson.” Tapping the end of his cigarette, he sprinkled ash onto my designer blouse. A piece of the flame had fallen, burning through the sheer material, scorching my skin. Before now, I’d never thought Jamie capable of hurting me. The truth was now so blatantly blazed into our history that it could never be unwritten. Without warning, he pressed closer until I could see nothing but the angry blackness of his eyes. “I’m afraid I’m not going anywhere. By the time I’m done with you, Barbette Montgomery, you’ll be crawling back to me… but I doubt I’ll want my cousin’s sloppy thirds.”

“I wouldn’t hold your breath.” I wasted little time pushing him away. Tragically, the moment my hand connected with his warm skin, the electricity threatening to make my broken heart beat again became too obvious to ignore. I tried to run from it, but some inexplicable need to seal our fate had me spinning on my heel to face him again. “Better yet, Jameson, do us both the favor, won’t you?”

Bohemian Girl Release Blitz & Review

BOHEMIAN GIRL (Southern Girl Series #1) by Georgia Cates Release Date: December 5th

Add to Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48563595-bohemian-girl

AVAILABLE NOW!! Amazon: https://amzn.to/32GC4Ha Apple Books: https://apple.co/33EwHYI Nook: http://bit.ly/2BAwudr Kobo: https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/bohemian-girl Google Play: http://bit.ly/2Pe6oow

Blurb: A faceless name. That’s all she was when I agreed to play a part in deceiving her. And then the unexpected happened.

We met.

I yearn for her skin against mine. I crave her scent on my body. I want to make her laugh and then moan. And I do… in secret.

I promised my business partner I wouldn’t touch his sister. But I broke that promise.

Our little dirty weekends together are no longer enough. I want my bohemian girl in my bed every night. She wants a ring, marriage vows, and babies … all things that I can’t give her.

Our romance is explosive. Our love, epic. Our ending, miserable… unless I bend.

If I don’t bend, I’ll break.

My Review

Holy hot biscuits and gravy!! There ain’t nothing better than a dirty talking Cajun and the Bohemian beauty that brings this playboy businessman to his knees. Author Georgia Cates had me hooked from the blurb alone.

 I just knew I was in for a naughty little piece of forbidden goodness. It has so many things going for it. 

Friends with Benefits to Lovers✔️

Brothers Best Friends ✔️

Anti Marriage and Kids Hero ✔️

Heroine who eventually wants marriage and kids✔️

This has the recipe for disaster in the making for Lucas and Lawry in so many ways. The settings, the secondary characters. Everything adds up to the just the perfect amount of sweet smokin’ hot banter, super sexy scenes. Drama and conflict, wondering will they be able to get it together. What’s going to happen when sneaking around comes out? 

I love Lawrence “Lawry’s” character. She’s chill and eccentric and a little out there but in a cool way. She’s super gorgeous and hot and has a body made for sin. She has always been a caregiver to her younger brother Oliver, they had a horrible upbringing until they were adopted and that has made her always be super protective of him. When she doesn’t hear from him she shows up to Birmingham, Alabama to surprise him at the beer festival his company is hosting. She is the one who is surprised, however when she ends up hanging out with the captivating Cajun Lucas Broussard, her brothers business partner. Will Lawry risk upsetting her brother by ignoring his orders and give into her desire to start a physical relationship with Lucas while she’s in town? What will happen when Lawry realizes that Lucas can’t or won’t  give her all of the things she wants so badly in her future? 

Oh Lucas! Man, his character was hot and frustrating at the same time. I like home so much, then I wanted to throttle him. I could see the perfect future… it was so close, within reach, but he was so stubborn. I was really afraid that I might not get the outcome I was hoping for. I was sooo glad we got just the perfect amount of frustration and drama. My kindle survived. Just barely. Lol  He totally could redeem himself anytime, in any scene he was in with Aubrey. #UncleBou for the Win!! Absolutely Presh!

⭐⭐⭐⭐️-This is a previously released book. It’s had some updates done to I think, but I didn’t read it before. So it’s a first for me. I loved it. I really loved all the characters. Definitely recommend. I’m a huge Georgia Cates fan!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG!!Lucas and Lawry are smokin in the sack y’all! HOLY HOTNESS! 🧨💥🧨💥GIMME ONE OF THEM OLD TIMEY FUNERAL FANS CAUSE IMMA SWEATIN’ lol

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-No cliffhanger! HEA! I can’t wait for the other two books in the series.

Midnight Kiss Review

BLURB

𝔻𝕚𝕣𝕥𝕪. 𝔼𝕧𝕚𝕝. 𝕍𝕚𝕝𝕖. 𝔹𝕖𝕒𝕦𝕥𝕚𝕗𝕦𝕝.⁣

Logan Gregory is the devil in human form. ⁣

I should have stayed far away, but my weakness for evil men and a negative bank balance made him impossible to ignore.⁣

𝐇𝐞 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐚 𝐧𝐚𝐧𝐧𝐲.⁣

𝐈 𝐧𝐞𝐞𝐝𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐞𝐲.⁣

The job was simple. Our roles were clearly defined. ⁣

Then my stupid heart got involved. ⁣

We shared stolen kisses after midnight. Kisses dipped in secrets and sprinkled with lies.⁣

They say what’s done in the dark always comes to light. ⁣

𝐓𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐞 𝐫𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐭.

My Review

Logan Gregory is just as described. Evil, horribly vile, bordering on cruel. But he’s also gorgeous, deliciously dirty and will melt you right into a puddle of googly eyes and sweet fantasies when you see him with his little girl. What a horrible combination for any woman’s poor heart and panties, they don’t stand a chance.

I mean who can blame you really , not surprising if the lines start to blur. So, He laid down the rules, he drew the lines and made sure there was no room for errors or misunderstandings. But who’s to say… would he be able to follow his own rules? The green eyed-monster is an ugly thing that gets a hold of us all! What about Emma ?!?! What would you do if you saw glimpses of a good guy beneath the deplorable guy he wanted you to see? When secrets come out, will Logan lose everything he didn’t know he even wanted? 

Emma was just looking for a fresh start. She came to Brighton U because no one knew her, or her past. The pretty princess exiled to escape her past. She just wanted to live a drama free existence. She needed money. Logan Gregory offered her a nanny job with additional job responsibilities after hours for more money that she could imagine. But was it worth the money or the risk to her heart? She had no one to help her. His daughter was adorable so that part of the job was a no-brainer. She wanted to care for Chelsea and do all the fun things that that entailed. But what would she do about some of the more unorthodox job responsibilities he was asking of her? It was obvious her and Logan were immensely attracted to each other, so why not enter into an agreement that would benefit them both as long as feelings didn’t get in the way? 

Emma had been through a lot in her past and my heart broke for her. It wasn’t fair how she had been treated and left to deal with the fall-out of what had happened in the past. I loved her character though. She was strong and resilient. The way she handled Logan was nothing short of perfection. She was sassy and verbally sparred with him. It was hot and filled with sexual tension. I loved that she stood up to him. She was the perfect balance for this intimidating businessman. 

But how will our sweet and sassy Nanny handle it when she feels like the past is repeating itself? 

Chelsea was the absolute cutest kid ever. I lived for any scene where she was present. She was a feisty little mini Logan and she was already putting boys in their place. Lol  This book has everything you could possibly want. This is a must read for age-gap and single dad romance fans both!!

MY REVIEW

There is definitely something to be said about a book that makes you laugh out loud to the point that you pee yourself am right? Anyone else do that?…No, just me? Um… okay well this is a bit awkward. Lol  

Seriously this book is freakin HILARIOUS!! Like one of my Top reads of 2019, because it’s just so amazingly funny and quirky and out there. 

When outrageously hot Con man Luca is forced to kidnap the beautiful innocent and sheltered Francis in order to save his family, he had no idea what was in store for him. This kooky but gorgeous girl and her sidekick Chandler Bing the chihuahua introduce him to a crazy side of conning he never knew. Next thing the captive has become the partner in crime.

Throw in a little Richard Simmons’s and then they are sweatin’ to the oldies and right outta their clothes. Getting down dirty right in each other’s arms right there on the yellow brick road and in the back of the mystery machine. How scandalous!! And when I say getting down a dirty, Y’ALL!! For such a hilarious book, these ladies brought the steam. It was so hot! Then they had scenes where it was hot and hilarious. I’m mean this book was killing me. In the best way. Death by laughing. I was holding my stomach going “it hurts” lol 

Join Luca, nutty as a fruit cake Frannie, and Bingie Boo on a crazy cross country adventure as they race against time and mobsters. Cross a few items off their bucket list, fall-in-love, meet an outlandish cast of characters, including a herd of goats with voyeuristic tendencies, a neighbor with a slightly weird relationship with his cat. Did I mention the most awesome Chihuahua in the history of Chihuahuas? Bing Daddy, Prince Bingy himself, The Bingster!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- EVERYTHING!! This book was everything! Hilarious, hot, some suspense, sexy, funny characters, Pervy goats. Chandler Bing the Chihuahua King!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Luca and Frannie are HOTTER than the seventh circle of Hell. Even in the funny times…Still hot. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy, but I’m hoping we end up with Vincent and Lindsay’s story. #WEWANTPAPPADEATH

Sacrifice Release Blitz & Review

Title: Sacrifice
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: N. Isabelle Blanco
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: November 12, 2019
Releasing as part of the 2019 Sinister Fairy Tales Collection and part of the Dark Paranormal Ryze Series, but can be read as a Standalone!
Megara
We all know the story.
How it ended.
He survived and conquered each task.
Became the hero of all heroes.
And in the end he became a legend.
What no one told you is that I was there. I was helping him . . . and when he ascended, I was left behind to rot.
Herakles never knew I sold my soul for his success—he didn’t need to. Had I been enough on my own, he would’ve chosen to stay.
Instead, he rose to full glory.
I was dragged straight to Hades.
Beaten.
Violated.
Broken.
Eventually, mutated.
I lost track of him for nearly three millennia, but I’ve found him.
I will kill him.
He chose to become a god; I was forced to become a nightmare.
Now it’s time for us to meet again.
Herakles
I abandoned my family mere moments before the Greek pantheon fell.
‘Till this day the whispers accuse me.
Had I been there, perhaps they could’ve been saved.
But I no longer gave a fuck.
Funny how vanity can blind a male to what really matters.
It took less than a year on Olympus before I began searching for her again.
I never found her.
Now, two-in-a-half-thousand years later, here I am.
Alone.
Empty.
An immortal ghost, simply getting by.
I should’ve never left her.
The only thing I had was hoping the last of her mortal days, wherever she ended up, were happy . . .
Joke’s on me.
A darkened, twisted version of my female returns, demanding my head for every one of my sins.
And she shall have it.
But first, I’m saving her from her curse.
I’ll sacrifice every ounce of my sanity left to free her . . . right before I let her end me once and for all.

My Review

Wow! I am so glad I took a chance on this book. While Greek/Roman Mythology books are not usually my thing. I mean, I remember a little from back in school(which was a minute ago), but  this isn’t quite the story I remember. Lol

 N. Isabelle Blanco has definitely put a more dark and twisted spin on the story of Hercules and Megara. 

In this story we are told of Herakles “Kles” and Megara “Meg” and their incredibly complicated relationship. They have this long, twisted, dark and painful history that spans several millennia. Sacrifice and suffering is how they have spent their time apart. Suffering in totally different ways, but both suffered and made many sacrifices, nonetheless. What Meg had to endure was gut-wrenching. It left her bitter and out for revenge. My heart was broken for her. But my heart also broke for Kles, his longing and searching. His suffering with guilt. 

I love the strength Meg had. She is one amazingly Bad Ass chick, and I love that Kles wasn’t going to give up his chance to make things right when he had his opportunity. Then when they were working together you just know they were made for one another!! They are perfect together, and so freakin hot!  

There were quite a lot of secondary characters thrown in and that almost got a little confusing at times, but I think it’s just because it’s been a while for me with Greek Mythology and it’s not totally my jam. But I still really enjoyed the book. If you like the mythology stuff definitely check this book out! It’s really good. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️- Great retelling of a Greek/Roman Mythology. If you are a fan you will love this!! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Meg and Kles are super hot for each other and so are their love scenes. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy, but I wouldn’t mind having more of their story.

Sweet Victory Review

BLURB

Holly Vanderbilt is running. 

From her past, her present, her future— everything. 

Baking is her only solace. Cookies, cakes, ingredients coming together, they make sense. 

A professional fighter walking into her kitchen? Not so much.  

Vince Steele is focused on his future. 

The next fight. 

The next win. 

Nothing else matters except feeling the weight of the Light Heavyweight belt around his waist.

Until Holly.

He has what it takes to win the belt. But will Holly’s past prove to be an opponent he can’t beat?

He’s never backed down from a fight. 

He wasn’t going to start now, not when winning Holly’s heart could be the sweetest victory of all.

MY REVIEW

Holy Jingle Bells!! I fell so hard for Gage “The Kraken” in Tap Out! I wasn’t sure my heart had room for another one of the boys in the  BTU crew . But oh how wrong I was. Vince Steele did It y’all. He pushed everyone else outta the running for my man status…at least until Alley releases her next book. Hehe 

Vince is EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything you could possibly want in your H. He’s super sexy. Abs for days. Disciplined, he has that title belt in sight ladies. He’s swoony and sweet, but at the same time Alpha and dirty-talking AF! He sets it mind on something and he’s NOT going to stop until he gets it, and that something just happened to be the new beautiful bombshell baker of his dreams at the coffee shop across from his family’s gym.

From the second he saw the delectable, Holly. He was hooked. She was sassy, and sweet and he wanted, no he needed a taste of her like his next breath. But he knew once he had one, he would never let her go. It was obvious to him from early on that she was hiding something and he wanted to get to the bottom of it.  

Now, Holly was great. She was sassy, strong and amazing. She gave up everything for a life of nothing. Or was it really? She ran from a horrible upbringing, and found where she belongs. Although she was immediately attracted to Vince she is hesitant because of everything she has been through. She just wants to continue her life of baking her delicious treats, singing Christmas tunes and settling into her new life. She never expected to find the world’s sexiest fighter, a coven of new BFF’s that would bring her in and make her part of their family.  While the sparks of attraction and banter took off immediately, the relationship was slow burn, and I loved that. But holy moly, the love scenes y’all. GOOD.GRAVY!

When Holly’s past shows up to threaten her perfect new future she has built for herself. The way all her new friends stood up for her and backed her as one of their own, *fans watery eyes* Like the grinch my heart grew three sizes!! 

This is the third stand-alone in the BTU books and they keep getting better! I most definitely recommend you check out Alley Ciz and the crazy crew she has crafted!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐️-Five Golden Stars🎶 Once again Alley Ciz does it. She brings back the BTU crew adds us a new gal Holly and weaves together the perfect blend of sweetness, kindle melting heat, fun coven conversations, hilarious graphic Christmas T-shirts, and threw in some suspense to kick it up a notch! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Keep an eye on your cookies ladies cause they might get burned! So.Freakin.Hot!! Butter melting hot! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- No Cliffy. This is the third book in the BTU series, but like the others can be read as a stand-alone.
