My Review

This ending was fantastically fabulous y’all!! Though I was not really ready for this series to be over, it couldn’t have ended any better. This last season of episodes was just as packed full of love, sex, drama, angst and frustration as ever! I devoured every single syllable from start to finish. And I was a quick chick!! I couldn’t put it down. We had tested loves, long distance love, love triangles. Semi break ups, and makeups. We had it all. We had all the components of a perfect HEA for some  and more non traditional HEA’s for others. It was MAGICAL! 

Erin, Jess, Skyler, Cassie, Ashlei, Bear and Adam won me over way back in the beginning. Somewhere along the way Kip, Kade, Brandon and Jarrett and the other secondary characters became just as huge a part of these girl’s stories. I was just as invested in what happens to these dudes. 

Now I can say, like college itself, the growth in the characters from the first book to the last was astonishing. I love that it was just like watching/reading these kids go from young college kiddos to full grown mature adults ready to take on the world. It made these characters’ problems and issues believable and relatable, and you were able to easily sympathize with them. I cried so much during this book. I cried for the situations, I cried because I was happy, I cried because I didn’t want to let them go. They were my friends now. 

If you have not checked out this PSU series yet YOU ARE MISSING OUT!! They are on KU so grab them and start binge reading today!!

The Bosun Review


OMG y’all! Flutters of excitement, this book gave me butterflies 🦋 and goosebumps and so many moments of fan myself goodness! 😍 

So, Harlow Layne is MY GIRL an absolute reaper of Reverse Age Gap! SHE KILLS  IT EVERY DANG TIME! Intern, The Model and now The Bosun! GAH! My heart is so full though, y’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 didn’t even know you wanted or needed. 🙌🏻 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 Stella’s journey is the most delectably phenomenal rollercoaster of emotions. I laughed, I cried, I stressed, I swooned.  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.  He’s mine too  just letting y’all know now! I will share him with Stella, cause she’s my girl and her and Pen would probably gang up on me, but I’m not sharing with nobody else. Lol 😏

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 didn’t even know were possible. 

She’s had a rough go as of late and he only wants to make her feel desired and make her feel better.  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? 

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,  sweet, young and fun-loving guy but also very off-limits charter staff member. But he’s also very mature and polite. However he is hiding some secrets and feelings of his own. This guy may be young but he’s far from a kid, the stuff he’s seen and dealing with, OMG!! The tears y’all. Oh how I cried! . 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. He’s got it bad for his “sexy Stella.” When the vacation is over can Remy just walk away and just forget about Stella? 

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 y’all! But more than that, their emotional connection. 

There is always something a little unconventional about Harlow Layne’s couples, they are truly amazingly beautifully connected couples.  Be it life circumstances, appearances, or age difference, she always manages to shock us in some way with their life’s  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.  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!! 

Swoon 🥰🥰

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog ratings wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- Six bring me on that boat and heal all my hurts, Stars. So grateful for the Ryder and Lexie visits. 😍😍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 Remy and Stella’s stolen sexy love scenes!! 🔥🥵🔥 This is most definitely a Panty Chucker Y’all! (Chuck em ,  you don’t need em’) 

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

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.

He’s running out of options and needs the treatment.
The only thing is, he hasn’t been honest with Hadley.
One truth leads to a cascade of events that all circle back to one thing… Ander’s addiction.

Life is never easy and the road to recovery is paved with shattered glass.
Hadley’s in love with an addict that harbors more secrets than Pandora’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 other’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 can’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 can’t keep enabling him. It’s gonna hurt and take some huge sacrifice on her part because she just can’t stay in this world of worry and stress with him. But… Has he finally broken his last straw?

This book, like the others in the series, is emotional and raw. It’s so gut wrenching and real at it’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 it’s so REAL y’all! There are couples out there like our Ander and Hadley right now and they don’t survive. So I can’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 it’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 y’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. 

I certainly hope you aren’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 can’t explain the feelings in my heart as each one’s own personal story starts to become unveiled. Every emotion I had was tugged at. It didn’t know my heart had room for more of Meagan Brandy’s boys after Brayshaw, but I WAS WRONG!! 

Then our gorgeous heroine. She had  castle sized walls up too. She was a perfectly polished façade from the front and no one had been able to penetrate past the mask she hid behind…Until now. 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! 

If you loved the Brayshaw boys, prepare your hearts ladies. There’s some new man in town and they may just steal your heart away from your favorite Bray!  If you thought your Braygirls knew how to bring out their inner “B” well just wait till you meet “Trouble”! 

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 who’s who pretty quick and then it’s unputdownable! Don’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. It’s mysterious and shocking and it’s just downright really good! Read it y’all!! Yeah, just read it!!

Hazed Release Blitz & Review


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

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

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

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

Meanwhile at PSU, Bear and Adam are in their final semesters, which means one last Spring Break to rule them all. That’s not the only thing on Bear’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 y’all! They are my people. lol  couldn’t wait to get back in this world. I needed to know what’s happening with them. Hazed was everything I was hoping it would be.I just can’t get enough of the lives of the PSU crew. I’m so invested. It was filled with drama and misunderstandings, and totally exciting and sexy.  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! 

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

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 is… will Bear finally get his girl? Well time will tell, cause I just can’t say nor would I if I could. 😉

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.  While she’s definitely grown up and definitely coming into her own as a super boss babe, she’s still a work in progress…Romantically speaking. 

Erin– Erin is probably the character that’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. 

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 it’s looking like the future is going to require more sacrifices and trust than they could have ever imagined. But they haven’t gone through all they have not to put in the work, right? 

Jess – After Kade’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? 

Kip and Skylar are living the dream together at PSU. When some of the eager actors are being way too helpful to Kip, Skylar can’t help but feel territorial and threatened. Could  Kip’s limited time at PSU put some strain on their once solid foundation? 

Cr8zysockbookblock ratings wrap up. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- So Many Stars! It was so full of fun, greek life shananigans,  secrets , angst, sex, heart, banter, tears, sexual tension , loss, and frustration, and surprises! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-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! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪Because 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 series… WHAT IN THE HECK ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!?!

Her Reluctant Husband Release Blitz & Review

🔥🔥HOT NEW RELEASE🔥🔥

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 didn’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. 😭 I was filled to the brim with excitement,  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 doesn’t seem to be ANYTHING she cannot write, and she absolutely CRUSHED IT!! 

Told in dual POV, which is my favorite, Alex and June’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. 😭😱😭

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. 💔

Alex was always meant to be the great love of June’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 Erica’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. 😉

Erica did such a great job in June and Alex’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.  

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!! 🤗🤗🤩🤩

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 couldn’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. 💔Beck and Josie’s story is addictive and woo hoo, GLORY B, it’s not done being told. I am so not ready to let them go. 🤗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 can’t wait! This was unputdownable.

Tequila Rose Release Blitz & Review

 

Tequila Rose by Willow Winters is now live!

 

He tasted like tequila and the fake name I gave him was Rose.

Four years ago, I decided to get over one man, by getting under another. A single night and nothing more.

I found my handsome stranger with a shot glass and charming but devilish smile at the end of the bar. The desire that hit his eyes the second they landed on me ignited a spark inside me, instant and hot. He was perfect and everything I didn’t know I needed. That one night may have ended, but I left with much more than a memory.
Four years later, and with a three-year-old in tow, the man I still dream about is staring at me from across the street in the town I grew up in. I don’t miss the flash of recognition, or the heat in his gaze.

The chemistry is still there, even after all these years.

I just hope the secrets and regrets don’t destroy our second chance before it’s even begun.

My Review

Oh my heart. Tequila Rose by Willow Winters is this amazing book that is a quasi-love triangle book that will change the way you think of love triangles. Even the most cynical of love triangle protesters should give this book a try because the circumstances surrounding the ways everything happens makes this feel different from any other love-tris I’ve read. It’s got so much heart and feeling. I was drawn in and addicted from the first page. Invested in the amazing characters Willow had perfectly crafted for us. 

You will find yourself frustratingly torn between the old and the new. Wondering what the intentions are between these men that have such strong holds on our precious love. 

This is the story of Magnolia, her highschool sweetheart, Robert who broke her heart and sent her flying into the arms of Brody after way too many drinks.  Deciding to toss out a BS name, Rose, just to be anyone other than who she is for one night, their connection is undeniable and electric. However that night turned out to be the single most simultaneously worst and best of her life. I’m not gonna give any more details than that because #SpoilersSuck! 

When the gorgeous stranger she thought she would never see again shows up in her home town for work it most definitely throws Magnolia for a loop. She runs out of the lunch bistro so fast it’s like she’s being chased by a swarm of bees. She is so not ready for a reunion she never thought would come. 

Brody is so excited about the prospect of starting over in a new town in a new business venture with his best friend. When he thinks he spots the beautiful girl who still haunts his dreams from four years ago, he surely must be mistaken. A chance run in at lunch and He learns that not only is it his Rose, but she does NOT want anything to do with him now. He makes it his mission to find out everything about the girl the townspeople refer to as “Magnolia.” But is he really ready for the surprise she has in store for him? 

Five Fantastic Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for This book is full of meddling townsfolk, dreamy episodes of happenstance. Lot’s of fan yourself flames 🔥🔥🔥🔥for this  Sexy, swoony and sweet times. Banter for days and leaves you with lots of mystery, that 🌪 CLIFFY THOUGH y’all,🌪 wondering what’s going to happen. Grab this beautiful and emotional must read today!!

 

Meet Willow


I started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read romance novels and I read everything I could get my hands on. I would read a book a day — sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have connected with so many readers.

And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I’ll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my littles during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a reader and it motivates me to push through and keep writing. I couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful career.

Blurb:
Winston Constantine is no prince charming…
I crave him so badly I think I might be losing my mind. He’s right in front of me, but he’s just as remote as my dreams of getting away from my stepbrothers. I keep playing his twisted games, and I want to stay just as distant as he is. But I can’t. I never could. I’ve fallen for him. Hopelessly. Irrevocably.
But Winston isn’t a lover, he’s a business venture.
A way for me to pay for college.
A ticket out.
He’s never pretended to be anything other than that.
I can’t blame him for making me fall in love.
There can be no happily ever after between a maid and a prince, no matter what the stories say.

CARRIE

𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐦𝐞, 𝐛𝐮𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮’𝐫𝐞 𝐰𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐠.

You look at me and see Carrie, the girl with the wild hair and the wild clothes.

Reliable Carrie. Friendly. Quirky. Perhaps a little strange.

What do you really know about me, though?

The details of my past are up for debate.

I’ve been careful to hide my sins, and even more careful to follow the rules.

I do as I’m told. I keep to myself. I don’t mess around with boys, and I’m always ready to run.

At least that’s what I tell myself, anyway.

Since I met him, I’ve broken every single rule in the book.

He’s impossible. Arrogant. Terrifying.

If I’m not careful, Wolf Hall’s golden boy will do more than make me break the rules. He’ll wind up breaking me.

DASH

𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭, 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐦𝐞, 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐡𝐚𝐭𝐞 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐦𝐬𝐞𝐥𝐯𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐰𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐦𝐞. 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐭’𝐬 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐢𝐭 𝐚𝐥𝐰𝐚𝐲𝐬 𝐠𝐨𝐞𝐬.

I’m the smart one. The charming one. The guy with the accent that makes girls go weak at the knees. As a resident of Riot House, I’m destined to rule Wolf Hall. Doesn’t matter where you come from. How much money you have. What your future holds. Cross the path of a Riot House Boy and you’re guaranteed to pay the price.

The girl isn’t special. She’s just another cog, turning in the wheel. So why, then, am I protecting her? And why am I keeping her a secret?

Call me a monster.

Call me a fiend.

Call me reprehensible.

My Review

These boys start a Riot wherever they go!! 😍  I am obsessed, like fantastically fanatically OBSESSED with the Crooked Sinners series. Y’all I thought I loved Wren and Elodie, but honestly nothing could have prepared me for the outpouring of love my heart would have for Dashiell and Carina.

Holy hell y’all my poor heart was broken and beaten, torn around and twisted. But it also melted and swooned and just plain fell hard core IN LOVE with Lord Lovett. 

GAH! Lord Dashiell August Richmond Belleview Lovett the Fourth.What.a.mouthful 😏 This beautiful and tortured boy, broken by the very people who we’re supposed to love him the most. Neglected but not in the ways one would see, and by all accounts had anything and everything a person could want. His heart was destroyed as a child and the only people who he truly cared about are his two best friends and roommates at the Riot House, Wren and Pax. Drinking, party and plowing through the bevy of ladies at their disposal, while trying to keep up with his father’s impossibly high standards was getting exhausting. 

When Carina Mendoza caught the attention of Dash she put at risk the only relationships he’s willing to have with anyone and he’s not willing to put them on the line. He’s not strong enough to resist her temptation though, so he makes her his in every way that she can…except NOBODY can know about them.  Until their secrets put the one person in jeopardy he was never supposed to fall for, the one person who became his universe. 🪐

Carina “Carrie” Mendoza has spent years behind secrets and lies,  hiding things about her life to everyone around her. This gorgeous, colorful girl with dreams and stars in her eyes for Dash. She’s sweet l, sassy and loyal to her friends. The things this girl has endured and overcome. She is my HERO, she’s a rockstar. 

She is amazing. I want everything good in life for her, she deserves it. I want her to have a fairytale with a Lord instead of a prince. When she was devastated, I was devastated. This book is such an incredible journey. It’s the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. When Dash does the unthinkable and actually delivered on every single promise he made the night she gave him everything, she gave him the one thing she thought she never would… the power to destroy her heart. 💫☄️💔

You will get Wren, Elodie, Pax and Presley. You will see more in-depth into what happened that fateful night we first read about in Riot House. While this book is a stand-alone, it has interconnected characters and storylines so I recommend you read both to fully understand the full magnitude of the transformation seen in all the characters. Plus it’s just so flipping phenomenal. Grab this today!! All the stars in the sky and hotter than the flames of hades! Oh yeah! ⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥⭐️🔥
