The Devil and The Deep Blue Sea Release Blitz & Review

 

You don’t really know a guy until you’ve vacationed with him…

When Drew Wilson’s ex-boyfriend Joel “Six” Bailey asks her to go on his family trip to Hawaii with him just as her life is falling apart, she decides it’s the perfect time to give him another chance.

The hitch? The Bailey family includes Six’s rude older brother, Joshua–a hot-nerd doctor who has hated Drew since the moment they met and once suggested she’d steal the family silver.

Drew is determined to win the Baileys over and give this thing with Six a fair shot…but Joshua is making that difficult. Not simply because he is in her way at every turn, but because–as one tropical adventure leads to the next–she’s beginning to wonder if obnoxious, odious Joshua might be the brother she actually belongs with.

My Review

I am obsessed with anything that Elizabeth O’Roark writes. Devil and the Deep Blue Sea was just what I needed in my life right now. It was the most delicious secret, forbidden, hooking up with your ex boyfriend’s brother while on vacation, romance. The journey to love between this gorgeous rockstar -who’s not got her stuff together and hot doctor,  who happens to be the perfect humanitarian and son, is an unforgettably exciting and engaging story. 

I loved the entire dynamic between Drew and Joshua and how they were stuck around each other on the trip. Them being forced to be around each other added many layers to the tension brewing between. It gave this gloriously fantastic tale the absolute best banter ever! These characters are so well written. They are beautifully complex and phenomenally intriguing. I love how they are able to balance each other. Drew is broken in so many ways and even though she couldn’t stand judgemental Dr. Joshua at first, it’s apparent that this man is the one who can fix her broken picked apart pieces and build her back up to everything she’s capable of being and more. Joshua is the most loving and caring son. He’s so annoyed by his brother and determined to be the opposite of his father. He doesn’t like what Drew and his brother stand for, although the more time he spends with her he realizes she’s nothing like he thought. 

I couldn’t get enough of their bickering and banter back and forth. It makes the story flow absolutely flawlessly. The characters are full of heart, depth and emotions. There is just enough humor, steam, banter, and frustration to keep you obsessed from the second you crack the book until the last word is read, and then I promise you still won’t want to let these characters go. I loved getting some more little nuggets of Tali and Hayes.🥰🥰  I’m totally devoted to any “Devil’s” of Elizabeth O’Roark’s. Five ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Flipping Fantastic Stars!!

Mischief Night Release Blast & Review

Release Date: January 20 


When it came to Romeo and Juliet, a kiss was never just a kiss.

The Brotherhood. 

There was only one way in and one way out: death.

Power.

That was the code we lived by. It was like a religion in our world. Men would fight for it. Die for it. Kill for it.

Sacrifice.

It was a way of life. Family. Freedom. Our very souls. Everything we had came at a price.

Love.

That was the biggest illusion of all.

I f*cked up and fell in love with the enemy. She’s too good for me, too good for this world I’ve been bred to conquer. But I couldn’t stay away. When I was near her, the monster beneath the surface begged to be set free.

She was untainted. I wanted to desecrate her.
She was flawless. I wanted to ruin her.
She was light. I wanted to drag her into the darkness.
She was forbidden. I took her anyway.
I crossed a line and started a war. Both of our families were out for blood.
The only question is, who will bleed first?

*This is book one in a series but may be read as a standalone. No cliffhanger. Please read content warning.*

My Review

Holy Secrets and Deception Y’all!! This story is deliciously dark and dirty. There are so many unexpected things going on in this book from the very beginning. I love the entire premise of Mischief Night. It’s got this whole secret society feel. But with no rules or supervision, there’s no telling what these rich kids will get up to or what the consequences are for the things they get up to. 

The history of the protective nature of Caspian towards Tatums drew me right into this book. The dirty talking and forbidden aspects to Tatum and Caspian is everything I love and look for in a book like this. The dynamics of this world, the elite social standings, the corruption… gah!! I’m obsessed with storylines like this. The rebelliousness of these characters had me quickly addicted to this series and I can’t wait for more. 

This story is full of secrets, lies, action, steamy scenes, and mystery. You will have plenty of “make you want to throw your kindle” moments of frustration. It’s so exciting to know we will get more from this series, but Caspian and Tatum’s story may be read as a complete standalone. This was my first book by this author but I can’t wait to start devouring her back log. I really like her style!

Blurb:

“You got married on your divorce-cation?”

That would unfortunately be correct.

I was hanging with the girls, celebrating my divorce when I saw him, my crush, sitting in the corner of the bar all alone. Being single and looking for a wild night, I asked him if he wanted to join me. To my delight, he said yes.

Drinks were consumed, fun was had and then . . . one drunken conversation with a cranky gondolier in Las Vegas led to an Uber lift through a drive-thru wedding chapel with the incredibly hot, British bad boy, Pike Greyson.

On paper, it seemed like I hit the jackpot. And if I wasn’t fresh from a toxic marriage, I would have absolutely noticed the finer things about him.

But I wanted nothing to do with being married, so when I arrived back home from my eventful weekend in Vegas, the last thing I expected to see was a new doting husband already moved in.

I asked for an annulment, he pulled a Ross Geller and said no.

That’s right, he said NO! Instead, he asked for three months to prove we could be good together.

Insanity clearly knocked him in the head and the only way I could convince him to give up on our sham of a marriage was to show him just how wrong we were for each other. Only problem with that was, he saw right through my every prank, every trick, and every yearning emotion I attempted to mask.

 

 

Oh.  What a fun read this was. Meghan’s stories never fail to captivate me with a perfect concoction of wit, steam, banter, great characters and a fantastic storyline to suck you in. Pike and Cora’s story is all of that and more. Heart warmingly hilarious , and just enough of a mix of sweet and dirty, this different take on the “ waking up in Vegas married” trope will keep you both entertained and entranced. 

After a divorce that leaves her with some emotional scars, Cora and her BFF’s head to Vegas to celebrate her “divorce-cation.” She wants to put that whole “ to get over someone, get under someone else” thing to use with some no strings attached fun. Too much fireball and a fun night out ends up with her married to a sexy Brit, who just so happens to be a new teacher at her brother’s school, she’s been crushing on. Waking up the next morning, Cora finds herself in quite the pickle. How will she get herself out of this situation before it becomes public knowledge?  

Pike Greyson has got himself in a doozie of a mess. He’s accidentally married the hot sister of his coworker who hates him. But getting out of this is not going to be so easy. Due to certain circumstances he now has to stay married to Cora and she’s definitely not excited about that option. He manages to talk her into giving him three months to convince her. She’s throwing out quite the antics to push him away, but Pike isn’t easily discouraged. He can spar with the best of them.  He’s ready to fight back with kindness and using any “assets” he has in his arsenal.  If revenge is a dish best served cold” he will happily lap up every icy morsel just to break down her walls. 

This book had lots of lol, funny moments, tons of steam, hilarious antics back and forth, and fabulous secondary characters. It gave you all the feels and a perfectly wrapped up HEA. You will love all the characters and obsess over the fantastically flawed friendships between Pike, Cora and Keiko. 

This book was captivating from the beginning to the end and gave us just enough angsty moments to have us wondering if this couple can get it together or not? I fell in love with the sweet yet incredibly sassy Cora and Pike was book boyfriend perfection. This is a dual POV novel and is the third standalone book with this group of interconnected characters. 

As much as it was heartfelt and steamy and it was also sweet and funny, I will definitely pick this story up again to visit this couple because I still want more from this great group of characters and the fun, laughter and feelings they bring.

Blurb:

Calvin will do anything for me… except leave me alone.

 

We were strangers, as far as I knew.

He saw me once, but didn’t introduce himself like he could have.

Calvin Cutler. Nice to meet you.

But there’s nothing nice about Calvin Cutler.

He’s ruthless and single-minded, and he zeroed in on me—a hapless target for his dark and twisted appetites.

 

In the depths of Hell, I first looked into his sinful brown eyes, felt the greedy touch of his demanding hands for the first time.

Not the last time, though.

He wanted more. So much more.

He wanted me, whether I wanted him or not.

 

Warning: Descent is a standalone dark romance with an unrepentant bad guy hero. This book is for readers who enjoy stories where the villain gets the girl. It is intended for adults only and contains subject matter some might find triggering.

My Review

Both tantalizingly toxic and deliciously depraved, Descent is like nothing else I have ever read before! Unquestionably unique, this f’ed up opposite of a fairytale will leave you awestruck and words will fail you. This story will make you question your sanity at times. Because you will fall in love with Calvin Cutler, the biggest anti-hero Sam has ever written! You will be floored at your ability to loathe and love simultaneously. But I assure you, you will fall for him. You might even hate yourself a little for it too. This story was maddening and that gave it such an addicting quality that I couldn’t stop reading once I started. I mean let’s just face it, Sam writes the alpha-asshole like no one else. I mean heavens to Betsy y’all! There are so many ways in which I found myself completely mesmerized yet turned on by the psychological torment Calvin put Hallie through.

I don’t want to give any specific details about the book away as the entire plot line is one trigger warning after another and any specifics would all be spoilers and #spoilerssuck. There are warnings in the blurb though and if you want more specific details you can PM me for more in-depth details. Happy Reading Friends!!

My Review

Oh my goodness!! Talk about mafia magnificence. Alessandro and Serena’s story is like no other in the mafia romance genre. This story is heartbreaking but also healing to its core. This world in which Siobhan Davis has created is unforgettable, the stories unputdownable. 

Serena’s character is rebuilding a life for herself after years of abuse. Her journey is one of self discovery, healing, and so much strength. It’s about realizing your strength that lies within, while dealing with the struggles that go along with trauma. I loved her character and I wanted all that’s good in life to find her and her children. I wanted her to find a partner who would treat her like the treasure she is, and I think Alesso is most definitely the man for the job. 

Alesso was such a fantastic hero in this book. Total slow burn book boyfriend goals. He was so kind, loving and patient. He was a delicious alpha and protector. He was longing for everything only she could give him, and in return he wanted to be there for her and her adorable kids. He gladly fulfilled a missing chunk in their lives. 

Of course… Since this was a Siobhan Davis novel it was jam packed with heart dropping moments, moving fast paced ensuring you didn’t want to stop reading once you had started. I just loved this world and all the H & h’s. This is the perfect time to dive right into the Mazzone Mafia series. Each book focuses on a different couple and gives you a perfect HEA. 🥰

Excerpt

 

ALESSO

She slams to a halt, turning to face me. “I would never deliberately deceive you. That’s not who I am.” Fire underscores her tone, and I like hearing it. 

“I didn’t mean it that way. I know who you are.” 

The saddest expression washes over her features. “If that was true, you wouldn’t be standing here with me now. You wouldn’t be spending time with me each day. You would run a mile if you realized exactly who I am.” 

I risk stepping a little closer. “I have known you long enough to know the kind of woman you are, Serena. I’d like to think you’ve known me long enough to know you could tell me anything, and it wouldn’t scare me away.” Reaching out slowly, I take her gloved hands in my bare ones. “I spend time with you because I enjoy it. I want to get to know you better. I want to support you as you deal with the things you need to deal with.” 

“Why me? I’m too old. Too broken. I have kids. I come with so much baggage I’m completely weighted down with it. I—” 

I can’t listen to her beat herself up any longer, so I place two fingers over her mouth, quietly shushing her as I prepare to negate each of her concerns. “One. You’re not too old, and I’m not too young. Age is just a number, and I refuse to allow stupid societal norms to dictate who I spend my time with or categorize the nature of that relationship. Two. Broken is subjective, and we all have our broken parts, but guess what?” I move my fingers from her lips to her cheeks, silently rejoicing when she doesn’t flinch or shy away. “Broken parts can be glued back together. Three, I adore your kids, and they are the cherry on top. And four, every single person in the world has some kind of baggage. It’s called life.” 

Tears glisten in her eyes, spilling onto her cheeks. “You’re not real,” she whispers. “You can’t be.” 

My heart aches for her because I see the mistrust and disbelief in her eyes. “I’m real, Rena.” Taking her hand, I slip it under my coat and over my shirt-covered chest, where my heart is currently jumping cartwheels in honor of her presence. “I’m as real as it gets.”

BLURB:

Clark Griswold was onto something, at least with his annual holiday meltdown. And since the last three weeks of my life have been riddled with humbug—another breakup, a broken toe, an office promotion I deserved and didn’t get—I’m not at all in the mood to celebrate nor have the happ, happ, happiest Christmas EVER. 

When Mom insisted that we all gather at my Grandparent’s ancient cabin for an old school family Christmas, I fully intended to get into the holiday spirit with the help of the three wise men, Johnnie Walker, Jack Daniels, and Jim Beam. But those boys did absolutely nothing to offset the shock or temper the sting of seeing my EX on our doorstep the first day of our holiday soiree. 

Apparently, Santa missed the memo, and this elf is pissed.

Stuck for a week with the man who obliterated my heart nearly two decades ago, I did the only thing I could do and put on my game face, thankful for the home advantage.

I knew better than to drink that last cup of eggnog.

I knew better than to get tongue tangled beneath the mistletoe with the only man to ever break my heart.

I knew better than to sleep with Satan’s wingman on the eve of the Lord’s birthday.

I could blame the nog. I could blame the deceitful light blue eyes, thick, angelic hair, and panty evaporating smirk…but mostly, I blame Eli because he always knew exactly which of my buttons to push.

I foolishly thought a family Christmas filled with nostalgia was going to turn my inner Scrooge around, but this year’s festivities went up in flames. Leave it to the ghost of my Christmas past to be the one to light the match. 

Fa la la la la, la FML.

These Thorn Kisses Release Blitz & Review

 
 
 

Release Date: December 7


Eighteen-year-old, Bronwyn Littleton is in love with a stranger she met on a summer night a year ago.

A stranger who was tall and broad in a way that made her feel safe. He had dark blue eyes that she can’t stop drawing in her sketch book. And he had a deep, soothing voice that she can’t stop hearing in her dreams.

That’s all she knows about him though.

Until she runs into him again. At St. Mary’s School for Troubled Teenagers – an all girls reform school – where she’s trapped because of a little crime she committed in the name of her art.

Now she knows that her dream man has a name: Conrad Thorne.

She knows that his eyes are way bluer and way more beautiful than she thought. And that his face is an artist’s wonderland.

But she also knows that Conrad is her best friend’s older brother. Which means he’s completely off-limits. Not to mention, he’s the new soccer coach, which makes him off-limits times two.

What makes him off-limits times three however, and this whole scenario an epic tragedy, is that, Conrad, Wyn’s dream man, has a dream girl of his own.

And he’s as much in love with his dream girl as Wyn is in love with him…

NOTE: This is a STANDALONE set in the world of St. Mary’s.

My Review

MY FAVORITE St. Mary’s Rebels book so far! WYN and Conrad are legit EVERYTHING! Their story is forbidden, swoony, sexy, frustrating, and emotional. Both of these characters are complex and imperfectly perfect in their own ways. From their first meet cute to the complicated dynamics of their attraction eighteen months later they have a journey that is kismet and uniquely theirs.

I love how all encompassing this story is. From every character to every scene I was addicted to this angsty and unputdownable tale of forbidden love. This was forbidden gold, it had age-gap, best friend’s brother,  and also coach/student all combined to make the perfect smorgasbord of everything I love in the romance genre. Like a delicious blend of trope tea I couldn’t wait to drink down. It’s definitely a book I want to already go back and reread just to make sure I didn’t miss anything at all the first go. It’s a standalone and the third book in the St. Mary’s Rebels series but I would recommend reading the first two books as you meet these characters and they are big parts in the first two books. Plus they are just really fantastic. Grab this phenomenal book today!! Five forbidden first love stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ruthless Player Release Blitz & Review

Ruthless Player by R.C. Stephens is now live!

Holland
Hockey winger and campus hottie, Cole Davis, might be an MVP with the ladies, but I’m not falling for a player…not with medical school on the line.

With our best friends dating, our forced proximity is inevitable.
 
That doesn’t mean I have to like it—or the way he makes me feel. Like I’m missing out and there’s more to life than sitting on the sidelines.
 
It only takes one moment of weakness to remind myself why I should have stayed away from Cole.
 
He might be a ruthless player, but nothing about this is a game.
 
Cole
Holland Donovan knows exactly what she wants out of life—and it isn’t me.
 
She’s not looking for any distractions, and I’m a one-night kind of guy, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting her.
 
From the first electric kiss—I know one night will never be enough.

I just need to convince her that I’m in it for the long haul—this isn’t just about scoring.
 
On the ice I’m a pro at blocking shots and stealing passes, but when it comes to Holland the rules change.

My Review

🙌🏻OMG!! 🙌🏻 So good y’all! This is a collection of the first three books in the Hellfire Club series and they are NOT to be missed. 

This was my first read by this author but I can guarantee they will not be my last. Reading the rest of the book in this series is a MUST! Each of these three books were instant obsessions for me. Wicked Idol, Callus Prince and Brutal Blueblood are clearly going down as amazing reads for me. 

Wicked Idol. Iris and Keaton’s story was just a forbidden dream. The richest and most popular jock and the headmaster’s off limits daughter. The girl who just wants to be a wallflower and get through her last year of high school gets under the skin of the arrogant guy trying to live up to his family’s expectations. What a recipe for angst and amazingness. 

Next was Callus Prince. Honestly, my favorite of the three. I loved the complex relationship between Lennox and Sloane. The “I hate you, I love you thing” was my jam. Totally. The secrets and lies they were getting caught up in made for lots of angsty mystery and it was fabulous. I loved how so boy and sassy Sloan was. Lennox is my favorite kind of bad boy. It doesn’t matter how mean he can be, you can’t help but to want him. Redeeming the unredeemable jerk makes everything right in the world. 

Lastly, we have Brutal Blueblood. This was Tanith and Owens’s story. Tanith is the scholarship kid with goals ahead of her. She can’t afford to let anything or anyone distract her from those goals either. Owen was the ice cold guy on campus that everyone wanted, but no one could have. Until Tanith. She caught his attention in a way that no one else ever had before. So the chase begins. But will she be receptive? 

Definitely check out this fantastic series. Overall I would give this 4.75 stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️✨The entire thing was great but Callus Prince just set it over the top.
