𝗕𝗟𝗨𝗥𝗕

Want to know what happens to a man who barely claws his way out of a tragedy, only to fall right into the arms of the one girl in the world he can never have?

Another tragedy, that’s what.

When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life.
Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have.

In a lot of ways, I did have her…
I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began.

Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross.

They say tragedy comes in threes.
For me, that was true.
The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me.

But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story.

And at the center of that love story,

There is June.

My Review 

img_6856

Oh! To try to sum up this beautiful book is impossible. Words would fail me to fully capture the full range of emotions I went through while reading this book. This particular genre, if you will, the forbidden/taboo is one of my favorites. But in typical fashion this author, Ms. Hartmann goes so much beyond the realm of what we have come to expect to see from a typical novel in this genre. Brant and June have a story that is astoundingly unique, tragic yet phenomenal, and unforgettably wonderful.

img_6722

It’s about the power of a love so big and inevitable it can heal even the most tragically wounded of hearts. It is one of those books that can and will stay with you long after you close the last page. This is the kind of story that burrows its way into your heart and soul and leaves a little piece of itself there forever. That is all I am going to say because just like I did YOU should also go in blind. Get ready for the most REMARKABLE book hangover ever!! This book deserves ALL THE STARS!!

Say You Swear Release Blitz & Review

Release Date: February 18

For years, I’ve dreamt of what college life could bring and while some things changed, there was always one constant.

It didn’t matter how wild I allowed my imagination to run, it always led me to the same place in the end. 

 

It led me to him. 

My future was clear, and he was it. 

 

Until suddenly … he wasn’t. 

 

Now I’m a shell of who I was, on a path too blurry to follow, and I see no way out.

No way up. 

 

They say first loves last forever.

That’s exactly what I’m afraid of.

My Review

Oh my Holy Heartbreak and then Heartmending!! This book y’all! This freaking book will definitely be one of my top reads of 2022. It was phenomenal. Each exquisitely  thought out and executed detail captivated me. While this book was a slow burn I was entranced from the very beginning. Just the mere premise had me hooked and I was quickly wondering just how angsty was this ride that Meagan Brandy was about to take me on going to be. The answer… more angsty than I could have imagined, in all the best I want to pull my own hair out and toss my kindle across the room, kind of ways! 

This story is Ari’s journey. Her quest to her HEA. One we are most definitely wondering if she will ever actually see. It’s very much a coming into your own, beautiful yet gut wrenching journey of self discovery. I love Ari. I love the transformation of her character as a result of her experiences. Oh how I cried for her. I cheered for her, I hoped for her, celebrated for her and was broken right along with her. But even in the most devastating part of her journey I felt despair right along with her. I know for her to end up where she did it was all necessary to her story and I’m so grateful for that experience. I would never trade the feelings you get from a deep, cleansing therapeutic cry. The kind that comes from a book that fits you before it puts you back together. *insert sigh of complete contentment* 

Now, I will not name the H, but I will say he is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE MB HERO EVER!! And let’s be honest she has some absolutely amazing guys to choose from. If I walked into “Build-A-Book-Boyfriend” today and made him for myself I would have picked everything Meagan had going for him, but then she had more that I didn’t even know were options. He’s perfection personified!! He’s gorgeous, talented, caring, sweet, swoony, and loyal in such an unselfish way to the extent I have never seen. I’m tearing up just thinking about it. 

He is EVERYTHING

If you love angst. If you love new adult, sports romance and drama. If you are as obsessed as me with amazing secondary characters and a story that sticks with you long after you shut the pages, I urge you to read this. Will you read this? “Say you Swear”

My Review

This was the perfect conclusion to the duet! Like break me absolutely in half and put me back together again. Keeping me completely on edge the entire way through Calder and Sutton’s continuing storyline. Blood, sweat and tears were shed by all. This story, as gritty and devastating as it was gripping and perfect. Everything that happened, had to happen the way it did for it to go the way it did. Trilina artfully plotted and planned down to the finest of details. My senses were in overdrive. I felt like I was there. Felt the fear, heartbreak, love, loss, excitement, all alongside the characters. That’s the mark of a truly great book. You get so enraptured by the story you forget you are not actually in that moment. Guys I’m telling you. Grab this duet! It is magical.

A Deal with the Devil Release Blitz & Review

A Deal With the Devil by Elizabeth O’Roark is now live!

He might not be the devil, but working under him for six weeks is my idea of hell.

Hayes Flynn is an arrogant jerk known best for his scotch habit and the way he spreads his British “charm” all over Hollywood, never with the same woman twice. He’s the last person I want to work for, except he has a face I can’t look away from, and the longer we’re together, the harder he is to hate. Because under that smug exterior is a heart he doesn’t want to show—one that was badly broken a decade earlier.

 

A part of me wants to fix it for him before I leave…but can I do it without breaking my own in the process?

My Review

Y’all!! This book is most definitely one of my favorite books of 2021!! It legit has everything and I mean EVERYTHING I am looking for when I pick up an office romance/enemies to lovers book. This was my first book by this author but now I want to devour her entire backlog. Immediately!! It fulfilled all my hopes of delivering the perfect mix of funny, delicious banter, sexy scenes, and make your heart melt swoony love. 

Hayes and Tali’s story is unlike any other I have read. It was such a refreshing new take on the whole boss/employee, enemies to lovers trope. Plus it was laugh until your gut hurt hilarious. Hayes and Tali were perfectly matched characters for each other. They were both fun and exciting. Their chemistry explosive and organic. Hayes, grumpy and jaded from some stuff in the past and Tali this sarcastic ray of sunshine. The Insta-lust/loathing was beyond hot and made for the perfect “banter o hate” you just didn’t know from one minute if they were gonna be verbally sparring or unable to keep their hands off each other.

Lessons in Sin Release Blitz

Lessons in Sin by Pam Godwin is now live!

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

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

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!!

Close Quarters Release Blitz

My boyfriend’s billionaire boss always gets what he wants.⁣

Menacingly handsome and unquestionably powerful, Theo Whitman need only snap his fingers to have a flock of supermodels fall at his feet. So when his steel gray eyes first meet mine, I expect him to pass right over me, to not give so much as a second thought to my presence.⁣

Instead, he sees me. ⁣

Truly sees me. ⁣

And for a girl who prefers to hide behind her camera lens, it’s the most unnerving experience of my life.⁣

Until he asks me to stay on his yacht for the summer.⁣

All I have to do to earn my keep is be Theo’s on-call photographer when he has guests, and I’ll get a free ride through the Mediterranean with my boyfriend. Easy peasy.⁣

Still, my skin prickles in warning when I say yes.⁣

As the humid days fade into balmy nights, I can’t seem to avoid Theo. And when he finds me, it’s like a rabbit running into a wolf.⁣

His intense gaze immobilizes me. The way he speaks strips me bare. Every brush of his skin sears me like a violent flame.⁣

My boyfriend’s billionaire boss always gets what he wants.⁣

And this time, I think he wants me.

My Review

Holy cow y’all! I was NOT expecting what we got with Close Quarters. This book was phenomenal and then some. It had a dreamy billionaire, an off the chain luxury Yacht, gorgeous Mediterranean locations, a super shy and sweet heroine, the unlikable characters and plenty of ANGST. This does not even begin to sum up how cool this unputdownable book was though. Aspen and Theo’s story is anything but predictable in this new take on the billionaire romance trope. 

Aspen Dawn is a truly remarkable character. This twenty-two year old recent college graduate is sweet and unselfish, humble and extremely beautiful. Yet she has no Idea. From behind her lens she is too used to looking at the beauty and wonder the world has to offer that she misses what she herself brings to the world. What was supposed to be a few quick snap shots of the yacht her boyfriend, Joel will be spending the summer on before she takes off alone on a trek across some of the Mediterranean most beautiful locations to build her photography portfolio, quickly changes into a life changing opportunity when she takes a picture of Theo Whitman. One look at Aspen and her photos and Mr. Whitman insists she join his crew for the summer as his on call onboard photographer.  What seems like the perfect summer gig for Aspen and Joel to be able to see the world together and get paid to do what they both love, becomes anything but. As day by day things with her outgoing party loving Joel are not quite she expected and introverted Aspen finds herself drawn to Theo instead. The angst factor is real my friends as Aspen battles her unexpected growing feelings for Theo and grapples with the guilt of her diminishing feelings for the boy she’s loved for years.  

“You are the voice I’ve always been afraid to have.” Theo held me closer. “And you are the life I’ve been waiting to live.”

Theo Whitman could have any woman he wanted. Though since the moment he laid eyes on the  breathtakingly shy photographer, Aspen Dawn, all he can think about is her and what he can do to make her his. Finding every way in which he can, Theo starts showing Aspen things she’s only dreamed of, while also seeing parts of her no one else had ever bothered to take the time to. He sees Aspen. Amazing, unselfish, giving, loving Aspen. He loves seeing the wonder in her beautiful face discovering the most magnificent parts of the world and knowing he’s the one to give her the experiences. He just can’t help but to with he could make her see what’s right in front of her and make her realize she deserves so much better, and he wants to give it to her.    

“Of all the yachts, in all the seas, in all the world, she walks onto mine.”

From the magical locations, Kandi Steiner spared none with her descriptions, making me envision every sight, smell, and color in vivid details. Discovering the wonderment along with Aspen, I felt like I was right there on the ship with them. To the secondary characters, some who definitely captured my heart, some I wanted to throttle for daring to treat my Aspen as they dared to. To the undeniably explosive chemistry between Aspen and Theo. I was addicted to every.single.word. 

Even with the circumstances surrounding her relationship status I DIDN’T CARE. Though I am not actually that bothered by books that contain cheating. I would never do that but find it to be exciting and angsty and so freaking hot in a story. The allure of the forbidden will always tempt me. Add in the change at getting discovered and OMG I’m sold. However this is not a typical cheating scenario and I would say even if that bothers you to still give this a chance. It’s not at all what you will be expecting. It’s beautiful and romantic and sensual and wicked hot. 🔥I’ve never read two characters that were more inevitably perfect for one another and I was hoping, praying, yearning beyond all else that they would find a way to be together. Damn the consequences. A love that meant to be shouldn’t cause destruction of any kind. This is most definitely a MUST READ. It is unlike any other Kandi Steiner book I have read. An infinite amount of Stars for this book. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ And Four Fan yourself cause it’s so flipping hot flames! 🔥🔥🔥🔥

No two Kandi Steiner books are the same, and if you’re a lover of angsty, emotional, and inspirational reads, she’s your gal.

An alumna of the University of Central Florida, Kandi graduated with a double major in Creative Writing and Advertising/PR with a minor in Women’s Studies.

Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic, and likes to highlight all the challenges of love as well as the triumphs.

When Kandi isn’t writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys live music, traveling, anything heavy in carbs, beach days, movie marathons, craft beer and sweet wine — not necessarily in that order.

Black Clouds of Cotton Release Blitz & Review




Title: Black Clouds of Cotton
Series: In Vein #2
Author: C.M. Radcliff
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: January 14, 2021

BLURB
Ander was never a part of my plan but when he came tearing into my life, I welcomed his destruction with open arms. 

Our demons danced in the darkness together to a haunting melody of their own. 
But Ander craved the poison that he injected into his veins and in the end, that was the only thing that mattered. 
Contrary to the popular belief: love does not conquer all. 
His love for heroin won. 
His love for me died. 
Or so I thought… 

One fateful night, one detrimental accident. 
That’s all it takes to shatter my already fragile world. 
He’s come back to ruin me what’s left of me. 
And even though I shouldn’t be, I’m ready for his pain.

My Review

My heart is broken right now friends. I’m crushed. 😭

I was devastated going into this book and I left it devastated. Ander and Hadley’s story is so raw and real and gritty, that it rips you to shreds. Tearing you down to your very core and lashing at you like daggers to the heart with the hurt that’s inflicted on these characters over and over again. Hurt thrown by each other and hurt by the biggest assailant of all, addiction. 

As Ander finds himself even deeper into the throws of his addiction, Hadley is in a downward spiral of despair and doesn’t even realize it. Heroin has her clutches deep into Ander, and that addiction is taking over him. But Hadley, our broken and beautiful Hadley has an addiction that’s threatening to take her down too, her addiction to Ander.

I’m not going to give any specific details about this book I will just say this book is an amazingly angst filled, emotionally gripping ride. It’s heartbreaking and poignant and tear jerking and just so frustrating. You can help but to want to fix everything for these characters you’ve fallen so hard for. You have started the countdown to the next book and secretly started to dread the day you will eventually have to say goodbye to these characters because I don’t want this series to ever end. Brace for impact my loves because we are so far from the end of this journey. 

All my love and the stars in the sky for Ander and Hadley!! 

Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

EXCERPT

My addiction stripped me of the only person I had ever loved. 
There was no going back from what I did to her and how I betrayed her, but I would give anything just to see her one more time. To hear the soft sound of her voice, to feel her skin against mine… 
Slowly peeling open my eyes, I lift my head, looking back down the street and watch the cars as they speed past. Turning my head in the opposite direction, I glance back toward the hospital and my heart stops beating in my chest. My breath catches in my throat and all of the air is stolen from my lungs. My surroundings fade away and I’m frozen in place, staring at a fucking ghost. 
The very ghost with those hazel eyes that haunt my mind. 
Hadley fucking Winters.

Sound of Madness Review


🖤🖤  𝐇𝐎𝐓 𝐍𝐄𝐖 𝐑𝐄𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐄 🖤🖤

Sound of Madness, Book Two of Maria Luis’s Broken Crown Trilogy, is LIVE! 

BLURB

He is my ruin.
My complete and utter devastation.

Loyalty or death.
I make my choice in a palace of flames, and wake to total darkness . . .

And at his mercy.

Calloused hands bring hell to my door and his velvet voice spews only poison.

“A traitor to the queen,” he calls me, and though I don’t know his name, it’s clear that he’s no Prince Charming.

Monster.
Villain.
A man who demands that I take it all—and submit.

But no one will ever mistake me for a damsel in distress.

He wants me on my knees, but it won’t be me who breaks.

Only, falling for the most hated man in England was not the plan.

If war is hell, then love is carnage, and the blood that’s spilled belongs to us both.

My Review

I am so NOT okay. SOM has caused some major tear shedding for me. Damien and Rowana are most definitely my favorite characters so far, and that says a lot because I didn’t think anyone could steal my heart from Saxon and Isla. These two characters have touched me in a way that I won’t soon forget. As a matter of fact I know I will be thinking of them in the days and weeks to come. Their story was raw and visceral at its core. The characters flawed, complex and that just made it gut-wrenching and my Damien and Rowan imperfectly perfect in my eyes.  I wanted nothing more than to be transported into this amazing fictional world Maria Luis created and see how I fared when I joined the alliance I most certainly would have aligned with, because I love them so! 

Damien and Rowena are absolutely hands down my favorite characters in this series. Both of these beautiful characters were no strangers to tragedy, the world around intent on breaking them but they remained the picture, the embodiment of perseverance. I’m not going to give away any specifics because #SpoilersSuck, but their journey has touched me in ways that I will never be the same. 

“Broken, but never defeated,”

They have clawed, chewed, scratched and fought for their version of redemption. Redemption and strength beyond comprehension when you look at all they have endured, found because they found each other. Both flawed and scarred by their past found acceptance and love on one another. They found strength to go on when they wanted to lay down and give in. The kind of strength that comes from finding the other half of your soul. That person willing to breach the gates of hell and duke it out with the devil himself, with no regard for their own self, just to rescue the other from a fate such a death. GAH!! The tears and the begging I did for these two. My heart splintered over and over again, because the odds were continuously stacked against them.

“I wanted to live”…“but never could I have predicted you.”…“I wanted happiness and you drove away the darkness.”

Will Damien and Rowena be able to overcome all the obstacles they have in their way to have a chance at being together and finding freedom from the shackles that have bound them to the darkness once and for all?Well… you will have to read to find out. So grab some wine, tissues, chocolate and a blanket and settle in for this unforgettable, unputdownable second book on the Broken Crown Trilogy. I’m already super anticipating book three.

★ Road to Fire BLURB ★

“𝐈’𝐦 𝐧𝐨𝐭 𝐬𝐜𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐨𝐟 𝐲𝐨𝐮.”

𝐈 𝐦𝐞𝐞𝐭 𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐠𝐚𝐳𝐞. “𝐘𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐛𝐞.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.

Spy.

Defender of the Crown.

To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.

And then 𝑠ℎ𝑒 appears.

Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to bus tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.

“Hire me,” she begs.

𝐖𝐞’𝐫𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐝𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐰𝐚𝐫. 𝐄𝐧𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭.

Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.

Savage.

Ruthless.

A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.

And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “𝑰 𝒄𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒖𝒔𝒆 𝒚𝒐𝒖.”

I had a plan, and it was solid.

 

Track down what was hidden away and take pleasure in toying with it. 

Toying with her. 

 

That plan, it worked like a charm.

Until it didn’t. 

 

Turned out, the feisty little thing I found was far from what I hoped for. 

She was different from all I knew and more than I expected.

 

She was light, and I’m the bastard who led her into darkness.

But this girl… she followed with a smile.

 

I told her I break pretty things.

She asked me to promise. 

My Review 

img_0019

OMG!! Break Me! Royce Brayshaw is something else. Break Me it did indeed. Royce and Brielle broke me over and over again. I think I knew even before I read this book that I was going to truly take the most special, most spectacular of heroines to tame our Uncle Bro.

img_2486

He is the most rowdy, the most broken, the one with arguably the biggest heart. His journey to love was gonna to be full of angst, heartache and, frustration and fears. For such a broken boy as he, we just knew he would fight like hell not to be vulnerable. 

Brielle was absolutely the perfect match “Tink” for Royce her “Lost Boy” in every single way! She was feisty and sassy and for all intents and purposes she had every right to give life the big ol’ middle finger but she was still a total sweetheart. With Royce she definitely gave as good as she got,  but he totally needed to be put in his place that way. He needed a girl that would verbally spar with him not just roll over and smile and bat her eyes at everything he said. I’m so sad to see the end of this series but couldn’t have been happier with Royce’s ending. I cried SO many times during this book.

This was a hard fought battle to HEA. It’s hard when people don’t think they are deserving of the good things that come their way. My poor heart. I didn’t know how much more I could take. But like she always does, Meagan Brandy being the perfect craftswoman of words she is,  brings us to the brink, emotionally breaking us before she will perfectly put us back together again in the end. Get ready to feel all the feelings! Love, frustration, heat, sex, lies, surprises, tears, forgiveness. Just everything. A bunch of constellations of stars for Royce and Brielle!! 🌌⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I’m here for it all! 😍😭♥️🔥♥️😍

Excerpt

 

“What do you know about being a BrayGirl?”

I open my mouth to respond, but he speaks again before I’m able.

“Be straight-up with me, little Bishop,” he warns. “No bullshit.”

Okay, fine.

I lay out what I’ve learned. “I know it’s what people call the girls who spend their nights with you or your brothers, or anyone who has earned the Brayshaw name.”

“Morning, afternoons, we ain’t picky on time of day, baby girl.” He’s angry and hard focused. “Keep going.”

“It’s a girl who is on lockdown. Untouchable to everyone, watched by all to keep her from doing things a Bray wouldn’t like or things she shouldn’t. Basically, she’s bound in bubble wrap, only to be undone by her man.”

“Temporary man,” he fires off.

“Right.” I shake my head in disdain. “Because she’s good enough for his bed, but not his heart.”

His jaw clenches. “You the type?”

“You’ll never know…”
