Get swept up in this insta-love holiday romance that will make you believe in the magic of New Year’s.

Jax is the modern-day equivalent of a Prince Charming, but he views himself as a beast. He rescues a beauty from the side of the road and never expected one night would change his life forever.

Gabi needed an escape from her world in LA. When her rescuer found her and her wrecked vehicle, she thought he was an angel. She quickly discovers she can rescue him back in a different way.

A holiday power outage still manages to shine light upon what matters most to Gabi and Jax—the people and the moments that define us.

One accident.

A one-night stand.

Two hearts.

And…some mistletoe.

What happens when the ball drops on New Year’s?

MY REVIEW

All I want for Christmas is 🎶… a Jax of my very own! What I absolutely love, love, love about Harlow Layne’s Heroes are they are all so very different from each other, but oh so loveable. As soon as I am convinced that I have fallen for the Ultimate Harlow’s Hero, she goes and writes another one and I find myself once again torn. The constant conundrum. Luckily I can love them all!! I love that her guys aren’t perfect, they come from all walks of life and most have been through some stuff, some not so pleasant too. But even with all that said her men don’t treat women like dumpsters, they are this perfect blend of Alpha in the bedroom but oh so swoony and sweet and all around great guys the rest of the time. 

Jax is all that and a bag of Christmas cookies! He’s had a horrible couple of years and it’s left him hurt and hiding in his cabin away from people. When he ventured out into a snowy ice storm, he happens upon a car accident and finds a beautiful unconscious Gabi. He doesn’t recognize who she is and when she wakes she only thinks he’s an angel.  I don’t want to give away a lot of what happens because it’s a novella and a really quick read. I will just say due to several circumstances, Gabi ends up having to go back to Jax’s cabin to stay and wait out the winter storm. 

Well let me tell you, Baby, it’s cold outside, but it’s sure got hot up in that cabin. There are reasons that Jax thinks he is unworthy of being with someone as beautiful and talented and successful as Gabi. Reasons he would think he would be a “ Beast to her Belle” if you will, but those things about himself are the things that I think make him even more beautiful to her. She is amazing and perfect for him. She doesn’t see his imperfections as a problem, nor is she bothered by them ,they are just part of his story. She’s not at all what people would expect her to be and I adore her! I love that they were both broken in different ways, but the other person was is just the glue needed to put the pieces of each other back together again. 

This book…total perfectness. It’s like the magic of Christmas morning. A night by a cozy fire. Chocolate chip cookies straight from the oven. All the things that leave you feeling warm and gooey and oh so good! That’s what this sweet little book does to you! I promise you want to grab it ASAP! Obviously lots more goodness happens between the pages of this amazing novella, but I wouldn’t dare deprive you of getting to experience it for yourself. So grab it today!

My Review

Oh my goodness I loved this adorable story! Juniper “June” and the way she plots and plans out her life down to the finest detail. Lol spur of the moment hooking up with the hottie, she definitely makes no plans for anything like Sterling. He’s hot, and kinda cynical, but totally free spirited! That’s bound to be a good story right?!?!  

Juniper “June” Spearman is sister to the Spearman men you may have read about in some of Claudia’s other books. If you haven’t no big, she tells who belongs with who. Anyway, June is in her early thirties, beautiful, has a wonderful family and is a great person all around. She has built a successful business and should feel fulfilled right? She doesn’t. She wants to be a mother. After many “it’s me not you” failed relationships, she has made the decision to become a mother on her own. On a night out ,Thanksgiving-eve before she has to see her family and just a month before she begins that process to become pregnant via IVF she meets this gorgeous god of a nameless man and has the most amazing one night stand. Even though it’s out of character for her what could it hurt right? It’s not like she’s ever going to see him again. She doesn’t know his name or anything about him. And she already knows she can’t get pregnant without medical intervention so she throws caution to the wind and goes for it. BEST.NIGHT.EVER!  What will June do when she finds herself falling hard for the nameless man a month later when she meets him again? What will she and Sterling do when they find out they unknowingly made June’s biggest dream come true that night? Will June be able to make Sterling realize how much he has to offer her? 

Sterling Ahern is this hot, brilliantly talented artist. He’s Uber rich but keeps himself away from friends and family as a protective measure because of crazy fans. He never has plans to marry, settle down or have children. None of it’s in the cards for him. He doesn’t like holidays or celebrations. But after his One night with June, he finds himself suddenly rethinking everything. Things he never thought he wanted he suddenly is dreaming of as a part of his future. But with his fame comes crazy fans, is it worth the risk to the people he cares about? 

This is a fantastic sweet holiday story. The Insta-lust is great, but even better than that is we get a slow build to a great friendship and relationship after that. The dynamic between June and her family and June and Sterling is incredible. Their witty banter and delicious chemistry is off the charts hot. Don’t miss out on this one. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

Excerpt

“Juniper Spearman, what the fuck are you doing here?” I hear Jackson’s voice and there’s a loud
banging on the door. “June, open up. I know you’re there, open the fucking door.”

“Who is that?” Sterling asks, gasping for breaths.

“June, I can’t stop him for too long.” I hear Alex’s voice. “Open up, Junie bee.”
I grunt. “My brothers,” I say, untangling myself from him. “Are you ready?”
Ever since we were kids, Jack has always known when I borrow his things without permission. I
knew going into his garage might trigger some camera. He has a tight security system. To top it

all, I stole his Internet connection.

But hey, I needed my equipment and a faster Internet connection. Sterling’s slows down when

we stream movies.

What’s the best way to keep myself connected while we are lounging?

I hooked up my electronics to his Internet.

It’s Jackson’s fault. The guy always brags about it being so powerful he can connect to it even if
he’s hiking a couple of miles away from his property. Well, the geek is right. I’m less than a mile

away from his home and I’ve been taking advantage of it.

He’s in the city, after all. He won’t notice until he comes back and hopefully by then, I’ll be

gone.

“I thought you had bodyguards to take care of unwanted company,” I growl, marching toward

the door.

He snorts. “I’m sure they know and that’s why they’re letting your brothers do whatever they

want—to interrupt me.”

We walk to the main door and what do we find?

Not one, but three very annoying Spearman brothers glaring at me—and Sterling.

“Juniper?” Jackson crosses his arms.

“Jackson?” I cross mine too and give him the glare. He might be taller, older, and meaner but
I’m not letting him treat me like I’m five years old. “Do I go to your house and bang on the door

at odd hours of the day? Mom will be disappointed with your manners.”
“This isn’t your house,” he corrects me. “And it’s three o’clock.”
Sterling surprises me when he says with a firm voice. “It is her house.”

We all turn to look at him. I’m totally dumbfounded by his answer.
“I like you, Spearman, but watch your tone.” He looks at my brother darkly.
“I thought we were friends, man,” Alex says with disappointment. “You’re breaking the bro-

code.”

“Seriously, June,” Jason says with a tone of disappointment and brushes some strands of my hair.

“At least fake it.”

I open my mouth to protest but stop myself. Saying I look like shit because I’ve been puking all
day is going to open the can of worms I want to keep closed for a few more weeks—months
even. Maybe I’ll have the babies and tell them about it when they turn four or eighteen.
“Not to interrupt this amusing family reunion, but it’s cold as fuck outside and she’s not wearing
a jacket,” Sterling says, pulling me into his arms. “How can I help you, gentlemen?”

“Let’s go home, June,” Jackson orders.
Sterling turns to me, his eyes soft. “Do you want to leave?”

I shake my head.

“You heard the lady. She’s with me,” Sterling barks back. “She’s also not your property to order

around.”

Butterflies fluttering and all aside, I compose myself. Because no one wants to speak with a

puddle of mush, and say, “I came with him and will leave with him.”

“Mom doesn’t know where you are,” Jackson starts nagging. “She’s freaking out because she
went to visit you and your neighbor said you’re out of town. The first thing she did was call me

because I’m responsible for you when our parents are out of town.”
“Jason.” I appeal to the one who isn’t as possessive.

“You know I love you and I support you,” he says. “But this wasn’t cool. At least text me your
whereabouts. What’s going on with you? I heard you’re selling your company.”
“You took the month off,” Alex adds. “What if I need you?”

“This is so unlike you,” Jackson says frustrated. “I get it from Jeannette but you …”
“Me what, Jackson? Just because I decided to change my life that doesn’t mean I’m a failure.
You changed yours, just like Jason did. I can’t search for my own happiness?”

He frowns and closes his mouth tight.

Cold Queen Release Blitz & Review

Cold Queen

by K Webster Publication Date: October 29, 2019 Genres: Adult, Dark, Fantasy, Romance

Purchase: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

Blurb

In a cold, empty castle, a young queen is dying. Weak. Fragile. Disgraced. But Queen Whitestone is not alone in her final days. She has her beloved sister. Until a wicked king rides onto her land. Arrogant. Insufferable. Demanding. King Bloodsun has come with an offer…peace in trade for a bride. He wants the princess. The fiery king won’t take no for an answer. He vows to keep the cold queen captive until she gives in to his demands. A queen bows for no one, though. Not even when she’s frail and fading away. She’ll tap into her strength, protecting the only family she has left. The king is about to learn why they call her the cruel one…

My Review

Holy Shitballs Y’all!! This certainly ain’t Disney, Folks. But, it is a fantastic deliciously dirty fairytale for us grownups! 

Cold Queen is part of the sinister fairy tales collection, but can be read as a stand-alone. This is a twisted take on a version of Disney’s “Frozen” will have you hold you captive from the first page, just like King Bloodsun did to our Queen Whitestone. 

Now onto our devastatingly beautiful Cold Queen herself. Queen “Elizra” Whitestone is Queen of the Norta Iceland’s. She’s the Punisher of the Damned. She’s the Weathermaker and the creator of Diamondblades. But she is also dying from the same mysterious illness that claimed her mother’s life when she was very young. She is cold but she is also fierce. She is loving and protective over her younger sister, Yanna. For many years she has been feared by many, but with her declining health, she can feel her control slipping from her grasp.

The arrival of King Bloodsun completely throws her for a loop. She is rocked to her core when he lays down his proposition to marry her younger sister and merge their two kingdoms into a kingdom of power the likes of which had never been seen before. While he holds her as his prisoner of sorts while they work out the terms of the arrangement, she finds herself drawn to the handsome yet devious King.

What should disgust her makes her hot and melts her in ways no one has ever done before. He sees things that everyone else has overlooked and begins to take care of her, to nurture her and she finds herself falling hard and fast for him. Will she be able to step aside and let him marry her sister despite the feelings she has for him? Will Ryke open her eyes to things that have been going on right underneath her very nose? 

King “Ryke” Bloodsun is everything a powerful king and ruler of the South Volcanoes should be. He is a fire maker, truth seeker, strong in battle, beyond hot, and deep down He’s caring and loyal. When he arrived he had a planned to get permission from the Queen by any means necessary, to marry her sister Yanna and merge their two kingdoms. He never expected to be so instantly drawn to the beautiful dying queen. He being the truth seeker he is, notices right away that something is awry.

Next thing he knows he makes it his mission to seek the truth as to what’s killing his beautiful Queen. He vows to care for her and quickly starts melting that icy heart of hers. Will Ryke fall as hard for his freezing Cold sickly Queen, or will he proceed with the marriage to her sister?

Can King Bloodsun the Firemaker thaw her frozen heart for good while healing her dying body? Will he walk away when he gets what he wants? Is it his ability to make fire that has things heating up between him and Elizra or something else? 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- I will take a bow for this King. This book was an amazingly twisted ta that enraptured mefrom the get go. Ryke and Elizra were nothing short of spectacular. Get ready to be sucked into their dark and deceptively deviant world. You with fall almost instantly I love with this  deadly Anti-Hero and his equally sinister Cold Queen. The banter is OFF the Chain! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Go Right TF on and chuck the corset, drop the drawers, piss-off with the panties. Whatever you want to call it. This book is so FREAKIN HOT. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFHANGER! YASSS! 

Perfectly wrapped up ending for all.

Blurb: “Tell me a happy something, Sutton.”

I was only seven the first time Grady Bowen whispered those words to me. Cloaked by the black sky under a blanket of stars, it was easy to get lost. He didn’t have any good memories of his own, and needed to borrow mine. I’d willingly give him anything.

Being infatuated with that boy was a beautiful curse. What could have been special didn’t get the chance to bloom. He’d never see me as more than his best friend’s kid sister. That was a hard lesson to learn, but not the most difficult.

Grady had always been struggling against the odds. Eventually he quit fighting and let his family’s reputation own him. Try as I might, those influences were beyond my reach.

He didn’t mean to break my heart. Or maybe he did. I shouldn’t have made it so easy for him. Either way, our wrongs against each other carved new lines between us.

I went four years without seeing Grady—each one more painful than the last. That distance did nothing to dull my feelings toward him. But things are different now. Most noticeably is Grady. I barely recognize this man he’s become. And that’s the way he intends to keep it. Not that it really matters.

Grady Bowen stopped being my happy something long ago.

My Review

Oh My Heart y’all! This flipping story. I love Harloe Rae. I was excited for this book to hit my kindle and WOW! I’m not sure I was quite ready for the emotional beating it was packing though. GAH! It was so, so wonderful though. Grady and Sutton were perfectly made for each other. Their “happy moments “ absolutely melted my heart. Every.Dang.Time! Now, that’s not saying their journey was easy nor was it always perfect and beautiful, but it was their journey and in the end “ the juice was worth the squeeze.” 

Grady Bowen. 

Gorgeous and he was good to the depths of his soul. But only those closest to him gave him enough of a chance to ever know that. His upbringing broke my heart. For so many reasons he feels unworthy. He has secretly been in love with Sutton, his best friends sister for most of his life. She’s everything good and happy.

BUT he doesn’t feel he deserves her and she needs to find someone who does.  I don’t want to give anything away, so I will just say anytime something starts to look up for him, another roadblock is thrown in his way. Will Grady ever get a break? Will he finally get to be with the girl of his dreams? And at what cost? 

Sutton is amazingly beautiful and comes from the best family. She has a supportive mother, father, yet super overprotective brother. But he loves her! For years she has secretly loved Grady. Right before she leaves for college she finally works up the nerve and lays it all on the line only to be left heartbroken and rejected. When she returns four years later determined to love on, her heart has other ideas. It’s knows that no matter what it has only ever belonged to one man, Grady Bowen. When she is finally able to convince Grady to take a chance obstacles starting to fall in their way. 

Will Grady and Sutton withstand the rumor mill and all that’s thrown at them?

Find out in this amazing, angsty, five star, MUST READ from Harloe Rae! 

I promise it will be worth all the headaches, heartaches, heartbreaks, and the book hangover you will be left with. 

 My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐⭐- SO much HEART in this one little book. This wasn’t what I was expecting from a brothers best friends romance. It was way better! It had me in my feelings and all angsty! The determination of the h to get her H and to make him see himself as she sees him. GAH! You could feel it all coming off the pages. Perfect! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-For Sutton and for Grady this was way worth the wait and so much more. Are you ready for simultaneous melting of your heart…and your panties. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFY Y’ALL!It doesn’t get any better than this! #PERFECTION

Excerpt: I take a closer inspection of this swoony charmer. Not an ounce of deceit registers in his expression. There’s no stony edge blocking his emerald stare. His ironclad guard is nonexistent. Zero inhibitions block the sliver of space between us. Everything is on display for me to see. I should be the one to stop this. He’s obviously not in his normal state and under the influence of hefty narcotics.

Who the hell am I kidding? Basking in a rare smile from Grady is a gift I won’t take for granted. Appreciating from a safe distance will be the true challenge. I test my willpower by trying to evade the sneaky fingers inching up my thigh. But our skin is magnetized and moving is impossible. The golden specks in his eyes glitter at my failed attempt. Yep, he’s onto me. I’m a goner.

As if there was another option.

The itch to comb through his shaggy hair tickles my fingertips. Would he lean into my embrace if I cupped his jaw? The tiniest bit of resolve stops me from acting on those impulses. But it doesn’t stop my brain from working overtime.

I wonder if anyone else has seen this side of him. The romantic in me wants to believe I’m the first, and hopefully only. I shove the fanciful notion aside. “Well, you sure seem to be in a great mood.”

That luscious bottom lip gets trapped between his teeth. I’d love to take a bite. As if hearing my thoughts, Grady rolls toward me. “Abso-fucking-lutely. Why wouldn’t I be? I have a gorgeous woman within reach, ready to take care of my aches and pains.”

This time I really do choke on my tongue. “W-what?”

The hand he has on my leg drifts higher. “You sound shocked, Sutt.”

How could I not be? “That’s an understatement.”

“Stay with me,” Grady croons.

“For the night?”

“For always.” His gaze is smoldering. Damn, he’s sexy. And irresistible. I’m liable to straddle his lap and offer him everything. But the chains of our past hold me hostage. I can’t fall victim so easily.

“Why now, Gray?” Whatever painkillers he’s on are proving to be an effective truth serum. I might as well use it to my advantage.

His blink is slow. “I miss the peace, Sutt. My slice of goodness.”

Sweet Retribution Blog Tour & Review

SR - RB banner.jpg

Sweet Retribution, the stunning conclusion to the Rydeville High Elite Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!

SweetRetribution_ecover.jpg

The good thing about hitting rock bottom is I’ve nothing left to lose, and the only way is up.

He thinks he’s destroyed me. Broken me beyond repair.

But he always underestimates women.

All he’s done is reinforced my resolve. I won’t stop until justice prevails and he gets what’s coming to him.

Kaiden is the only light in the darkness. He gives me the strength to continue fighting for the future we both crave—a world where we are free to love one another and make our own choices.

Until then, the charade must continue.

Game on.

This concludes Abby and Kai’s romance. 106k words, full-length novel. This is a dark romance, and some scenes may be triggering. Only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older.

My Review

Yes,Yes,Yes!! Sweet Retribution indeed. Daaanngg, Y’all! So I had been chomping at the bit for this last installment of Abby and Kai’s story. Wondering to myself, is it really possible for Siobhan to top those first two books in the series? I mean come on… they were fantastic. Almost beyond being able to put into words, kinda of fantastic. Well folks SHE DID IT! Holy Crap on a stick, this book y’all! She took this one and kicked it up so far beyond anything I could have fathomed. 

I went into this book with so many theories and predictions in my head as I’m sure you did too. Did she go through with it and Marry Charlie Barron? Will Kai walk away if she does? How could she even move on after learning what her father did to her anyway?

You might as well Chuck your theories at the door my friends, and buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride on a dark road, full of twists and turns. There’s gonna be forks in the road, crashes and casualties. I’m still trying to come down from it all.

I feel like my heart and brain and maybe even my stomach have been put through tumble dryer. This book gave me a thorough workover, that’s for doggone sure. I loved every heart-stopping, stomach-clenching, mind-boggling, and jaw-dropping moment. Some of my theories were correct, some were not!

The ones that weren’t,  I totally get why she didn’t go in that direction. There were so many unexpected twists in this book. Now, I have no idea where in the world this amazingly talented author thought up these things,  but I am BLOWN AWAY! This book was nothing short of twisted delicious perfection. This whole series is. But Sweet Retribution. GAH!! 

So many details and fine tuning had to have went into being able to wrap this story up the way it was done. I’m not going to give any specific details on anything, I will just say, I am in AWE! This is better that I could have predicted as far as the conclusion, and like I said some of my “hopes” or “theories” didn’t necessarily come true for this book. But I wouldn’t have her change a thing (if she asked my opinion. Lol) NOT ONE THING! I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Abby is a total Bad Ass! In a world where women are viewed as less than, she’s dominated and decimated. Even in secrecy. She can kick ass and take names  like no other. She can pound you with pearls on and a pencil skirt. Talk about Cut you with Class!!  

She proved to everyone just how tough she is and how she won’t lie down and take what’s being done or allow anyone or anything to break her anymore. 

Everything that happened in this book needed to happen in the way, in the order and in the timeline in which it did in order for us to get then ending that Siobhan delivered. I am so happy with the way this ends. I’m excited to know that while we are done with Abby and Kai’s story, we are not done with the world of Rydeville and those we fell in love with along the way!

 I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for “ I wanna Jump him Jackson” and “ Serious but  Sinfully Sexy Sawyer’s” books!! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐-Siobhan’s writing and The Rydeville are an actual OBSESSION for me! This book was so much more than I could have ever thought , or imagined. 

I’m adding in a sixth star because this book actually deserves ten and because I’m as rebellious as Abby and the Rydeville Boys. Plus it’s My Blog. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Holy Hot Day in the Morning !! Abby and Kai couldn’t be any hotter between the sheets, or in the shower, or on a desk… well you get what I’m saying. DAAANNNGGG! So Yummy Y’all! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-NO CLIFFY on this one. #PERFECTION more to come in this series. YAY!

Sweet Retribution Release Blitz & Review

SR - RB banner.jpg

Sweet Retribution, the stunning conclusion to the Rydeville High Elite Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!

SweetRetribution_ecover.jpg

The good thing about hitting rock bottom is I’ve nothing left to lose, and the only way is up.

He thinks he’s destroyed me. Broken me beyond repair.

But he always underestimates women.

All he’s done is reinforced my resolve. I won’t stop until justice prevails and he gets what’s coming to him.

Kaiden is the only light in the darkness. He gives me the strength to continue fighting for the future we both crave—a world where we are free to love one another and make our own choices.

Until then, the charade must continue.

Game on.

This concludes Abby and Kai’s romance. 106k words, full-length novel. This is a dark romance, and some scenes may be triggering. Only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older.

My Review

Yes,Yes,Yes!! Sweet Retribution indeed. Daaanngg, Y’all! So I had been chomping at the bit for this last installment of Abby and Kai’s story. Wondering to myself, is it really possible for Siobhan to top those first two books in the series? I mean come on… they were fantastic. Almost beyond being able to put into words, kinda of fantastic. Well folks SHE DID IT! Holy Crap on a stick, this book y’all! She took this one and kicked it up so far beyond anything I could have fathomed. 

I went into this book with so many theories and predictions in my head as I’m sure you did too. Did she go through with it and Marry Charlie Barron? Will Kai walk away if she does? How could she even move on after learning what her father did to her anyway?

You might as well Chuck your theories at the door my friends, and buckle up. It’s going to be a bumpy ride on a dark road, full of twists and turns. There’s gonna be forks in the road, crashes and casualties. I’m still trying to come down from it all.

I feel like my heart and brain and maybe even my stomach have been put through tumble dryer. This book gave me a thorough workover, that’s for doggone sure. I loved every heart-stopping, stomach-clenching, mind-boggling, and jaw-dropping moment. Some of my theories were correct, some were not!

The ones that weren’t,  I totally get why she didn’t go in that direction. There were so many unexpected twists in this book. Now, I have no idea where in the world this amazingly talented author thought up these things,  but I am BLOWN AWAY! This book was nothing short of twisted delicious perfection. This whole series is. But Sweet Retribution. GAH!! 

So many details and fine tuning had to have went into being able to wrap this story up the way it was done. I’m not going to give any specific details on anything, I will just say, I am in AWE! This is better that I could have predicted as far as the conclusion, and like I said some of my “hopes” or “theories” didn’t necessarily come true for this book. But I wouldn’t have her change a thing (if she asked my opinion. Lol) NOT ONE THING! I’ve said it before and I will say it again. Abby is a total Bad Ass! In a world where women are viewed as less than, she’s dominated and decimated. Even in secrecy. She can kick ass and take names  like no other. She can pound you with pearls on and a pencil skirt. Talk about Cut you with Class!!  

She proved to everyone just how tough she is and how she won’t lie down and take what’s being done or allow anyone or anything to break her anymore. 

Everything that happened in this book needed to happen in the way, in the order and in the timeline in which it did in order for us to get then ending that Siobhan delivered. I am so happy with the way this ends. I’m excited to know that while we are done with Abby and Kai’s story, we are not done with the world of Rydeville and those we fell in love with along the way!

 I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for “ I wanna Jump him Jackson” and “ Serious but  Sinfully Sexy Sawyer’s” books!!

Forever My Saint Review

BLURB: 

All hope was lost until Zoey Hennessy walked back into my world, shaking it up beyond repair when she uttered two simple words.

He’s alive.

She speaks of her brother, my Saint, the man who lost everything to set me free.

I believed he was dead. I saw it with my own two eyes. But when Zoey proves he’s alive and being held captive by a monster, I know what I have to do.

It’s time I saved him.

The plan is dangerous, and there are no guarantees I will survive. But if this nightmare has taught me one thing, it’s that I don’t cower in fear. I am a woman hell-bent on getting back the man she loves, and nothing, no one will stand in my way.

However, what I uncover can only be described as hell on earth. The darkness has finally won, and Saint is lost to me forever.

Or so I thought.

Aleksei Popov is anything but a hero, yet in this story—he’s mine. Everything I believed in is about to be turned upside down, and with freedom within my grasp, I wonder how far I will go, and who I will sacrifice in order to set myself free.

Oh Sweet Baby in a Manger!!This book Y’all,  this book! I’m still trying to nurse my poor sweet southern heart back  from the beating Monica James put it through. I’m still fragile! I imagine I will be for quite a minute. I can assure you, this trilogy has been unlike anything I have ever read before. I’m left in a cloud of so many emotions. I’m sad that Saint and Willow’s story is over. Yet glad that it’s over. Their story is so devastatingly tragic. I cried more during this book then I have in a long time. I literally had to stop at a couple of spots and call a book friend and say

“ I just need a moment.” 

I just needed a moment, friends. 

See that’s the thing…by this third book it had become more than just an investment for me. I was obsessed with these characters, there was no way I couldn’t not know what was going to happen. They had been through so much in those first two books that I was ready for them to just show up and serve up some justice sandwiches in this book. Now… is that what happened? No, if only it were that easy. 

I’m not sure I have ever had a book break my heart so much! Y’all that’s saying A LOT !I read a shit ton!  I was simultaneously suffering along with the characters as they were going through all of the heartbreaking and traumatic experiences. The things these characters went through are the worst of worst nightmares. The details Monica put into her descriptions, while devastating were what sets this book miles ahead of others in this genre. It was enough to completely gut you while  making sure you are still able to stomach reading it. So don’t worry. When I say I had to take a break, it was a heartache break!! I just loved Saint and Willow. I loved their love for one another. They both burned with such fierce sacrificial love. That’s what made their story so beautiful, yet so tragic. There were several characters like that as it turns out. There were these gut-wrenching moments between Willow and Saint where words weren’t even needed. Just a mere look at each other. GAH! It’s almost unexplainable! You just have to read these books. 

I truly can’t say too much more. To do so would give away parts of this book and it would be such a disservice to both Monica who has worked so hard to conclude this story in the most amazing and heartbreakingly beautiful way. It would also do a disservice to you as the reader. Trust me when I tell you, you’re gonna want to experience all the emotional highs and lows this book journey will take you on. It will be a journey to remember and IT.WILL.BE.EPIC!! While this is the end of the road for our precious Willow and Saint. A road that was long and treacherous. It was  littered with blood, sweat, tears and casualties. At many times you often wonder will you in fact get the HEA you desired for them? As I said before, they loved each other so sacrificially and unselfishly. 

What’s that old saying about “ if you love something set it free?”

“And in a bloodstained field, in a foreign land, a former captive said to her captor, “Thank you for being my best and worst memory.”

JUST READ THESE BOOKS! 

*As a caution – this book will test the trigger boundaries much further than the previous two books. If those were a problem or borderline for you , you will probably struggle with this book. While I don’t give spoilers in my reviews please feel free to privately reach out and I will be glad to go into it deeper with you if you have any concerns! 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐⭐️⭐⭐️⭐️⭐- I AM A MONICA JAMES SUPER FAN ! This trilogy has had me captivated for months! I have had countdowns on my calendars. Like that severe! This is the Pinnacle of a dark reads!  If you are a dark fan you MUST read this trilogy! This is one of those times where imma throw in an a sixth star BUT this book really deserves ten! Just sayin’

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- OMG! This is so far beyond just heat. The situations that led to our mains getting busy was so extremely insane. It makes this so much more intimate and special and life altering. 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-NO CLIFFHANGER! While there is no longer a cliffhanger in this book, you will be broken before you are put back together. 

Happy Reading!
