Stealing Cinderella Release Blitz & Review

Title: Stealing Cinderella
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: April 2, 2020
Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me. 
It should have been simple. 
Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity. 
But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected. 
He was dark and intense and eerily quiet. 
When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin. 
He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again. 
Then he came for me. 
And he took me. 
And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived. 
He’s the crown prince of Norway. 
And, now, I’m his captive.

My Review

Holy Sinister Diamond-Studded Slippers!! This retelling was Phe-nom-enal! A.Zavarelli took classic Cinderella and put a modern, sinister, dark, dirty, and deviously-delicious twist on it. She tossed in lots of heartbreaking elements and unexpected moments that hit me right in my feelings and I couldn’t put this book down! It.Was.Fantastic! 

Thorsen Lykken is no ordinary Prince Charming. Tragic events from his past made him the man he is. The reputation he’s earned as an intensely dark and secretive man is an understatement for what truly lies inside this beautifully troubled man. When he meets Ella he is immediately captivated by her innocence and beauty, he’s drawn to her in a way that he’s never been to anyone. He has to have her, so he takes her.

He’s dealing with personal issues and finding it hard to struggle with the balance of conflicts going on inside him. He’s never really dealt with women on his own. However he finds himself very dominant and protective over her where others are concerned. What I loved the most about his character was the amazing transformation we saw. I mean this man was night and day, from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Ella was the beautiful and innocent girl living a pretty sad existence. Walking around with the burden of your fathers death on your shoulders and then being abused and mistreated for years by the only other family you have left, had to have been devastating for her. Finding solace at the animal sanctuary near her home. A one night reprieve gifted to her in the form of an invitation to a ball leads to a chance meeting with Prince Thorsen Lykken that will change her life forever. 

There are many things that happen after which I won’t go into detail so as not to give spoilers. But ultimately those will inevitably end with her ending up at Thorsen’s estate in Norway. Given all that she goes through in the days surrounding her arrival at Prince Thorsen’s estate I found her character to be resilient and tough and just the balance he needed to his rude and rough. Instead of doing what we all expected she did the opposite, she was so loving and caring and couldn’t help but want to fix this broken man, and fell for him hard core in the process. 

“I think I know deep in my soul this is a suicide mission. He’ll never be able to love me back.”

I love this story because it’s such a story of transformation and healing. Now, it’s all kids of devious and dirty and twisted and unexpected and I love that. But I love that the Thorsen we meet in the beginning is not the Thorsen of the end. I love the journey these two broken people went on together. Their love healed each other. It was emotional and angsty and just all around a wonderfully awesome addition to the Sinister Fairytales collection.

My Review

All the Truths was exactly EVERYTHING I was hoping it would be and so much more! My head is spinnin’ y’all! 🤯😳🤯I need a moment to wrap my head around everything this book put me through and gather my words to sum up the amazingness that is this book, the conclusion to this duet. Rina never fails to twist and turn me in knots of awe and wonder at the suspense, heat, and every single emotion she captures in her writing. This was MIND-BLOWINGLY PHENOMENAL!

The conclusion to this duet was the perfection I was hoping it would be. Reina’s character once again proved just how amazingly strong and resilient she is. She is feisty and determined and I loved her perseverance to get the truth. I love how she redefines  what she and Asher were to one another then and what they are now, and they are EVERYTHING! 

Asher is a completely different guy then we first met. The experiences he endured made him the angry, out for revenge man he was, but learning the truths behind everything opened his eyes and brought about a completely new side to him. I loved this softer, more caring side of Asher. Don’t get me wrong, he was still all kinds of Alpha AF in the bedroom. Which makes him the perfect man in my eyes. 

This book answers all the questions we were left with and more. We had unexpected moments of pure madness thrown our way. It was spectacular. Definitely read this duet my friends. Rina is such a talented writer and this is the stunning conclusion I was craving! Grab it today. 

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- Rina had me captivated from paragraph one. I love the complexity of Asher and Reina’s characters. from one chapter to the next I didn’t know what would be uncovered and the unknown was Ah-May-Zing! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-The heat between them was pure fire y’all! Good gracious. Hot dang! 🔥🔥

OF Cover Final.png

It’s a man’s world.

When I declared sports medicine as my major and every man narrowed their eyes, that saying proved true. It was true when my ex-husband decided I’d give up my career when our daughter was born. And again when I divorced the Chief of Police in our small town, and he made it painfully clear that I could leave him, but I would never be free.

Landing the job as the new athletic trainer for Stratford’s high school team is my chance to start over. And walking into a male-dominated sport and staff, I’m ready for the challenge.

I’m not ready for Jordan Becker.

The head coach of our championship winning team is a Herculean force of nature—as severe as he is determined. His icy blue eyes and permanent scowl drive the women in this town mad, and his quiet power and undeniable command conjure respect from every man.

When I join his team, I expect the doubt and anticipate the fight from him. And I get them both.

I don’t expect to form a friendship.

And I never expect to fall for him.

My breath catches when those cool eyes fall to my lips. My body comes alive when his is near. And as those lines begin to blur, every warning bell sounds.

My job, my reputation are on the line.

And my ex is around every corner, waiting to remind me of his power.

It’s a man’s world, and if I want to survive, I can never fall in love with Jordan Becker.

Even if he falls in love with me first.

My Review

O-M-G guys! This ending to the Becker Boys Series could not have been more perfect! If you told me I had to pick a favorite Becker boy, I’m not sure I could do that either, they are all so different and precious and just so loveable in their own ways. This beautiful angsty love story was one I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Jordan Becker’s story was last , BUT certainly not least. 

Jordan Becker is EVERYTHING! He’s the most amazing football coach, brother, son and person. He is loving and caring and just has this special way about him. He meets his match in Sydney Clark, in every way. She challenged him in ways he didn’t know he needed challenging and was everything he didn’t know was missing from his life and more. For so much of his life Jordan didn’t know exactly where he fit, but he fit with Sydney and her daughter, Paige. Their relationship was precious and it warmed my heart as much as it made me smile. Paige was adorable and funny and I couldn’t get enough of her with Jordan. 

Sydney had been through the ringer, her history while heartbreaking made her the strongest most amazing woman and mother. I was pushing dm for her and Jordan because they just needed each other, they deserved each other. Even when they didn’t know it. I could say so many things about this woman but I don’t want to spoil anything. So I will just say, She.is.phenomenal! 

RBTeaser.png

It was fantastic to have all my Becker’s back together to wrap up this series. So many unanswered questions and prayers finally come to fruition for this precious family. I will just say, Y’ALL, this girl cried. I cried for the end of something that had become so precious to me. For the closure I needed in the most  perfect of ways. Kandi gave me everything I longed for. The Epilogue, GAAHH! I couldn’t be a happier girl! This series is LIFE! Grab it today. 😍🔥🙌🏻🥃😍🔥🙌🏻🥃

 My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️-Must Read Series! Becker’s are one of my all time favorite Book families!! This book had it all, banter for days and off the charts swoony and sexy time, angst galore. All the Becker’s were back in town! 

🔥 🔥🔥🔥- Jordan and Sydney were fire y’all. They were like the delicious burn of a good whiskey, they were straight up yummy! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-HEA. No cliffy! This ending was perfection!🙌🏻🥰😍😘🙌🏻

About Kandi:

Kandi Steiner is a bestselling author and whiskey connoisseur living in Tampa, FL. Best known for writing “emotional rollercoaster” stories, she loves bringing flawed characters to life and writing about real, raw romance — in all its forms. 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 diehard 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.

EXCERPT

“Why do you hate me so much?” If you do, why the hell are you engaged to me?“Might have to do with how much of a bitch you are.”“Oh, I’m sorry.” I smile. “Did I steal your title, asshole?”He pauses, head tilting to the side. “What did you just call me?”“A-S-S-H-O-L-E.” I continue smiling, taunting him. “Do you want me to spell it for you again—”My words cut off when he’s at my face, kneeling on the bed in front of me. His hand wraps around my throat like a shackle. He’s not squeezing, but the firm grip is enough to restrict my air supply and my thoughts.A frightening chill forms goose bumps along my skin as I stare at his darkened, merciless eyes.The sense of bravery I gained a few seconds ago evaporates into thin air. My shoulder blades snap together as if telling me I should be scared.This is a scary person.He’s fucking terrifying.The need to run away from him hits me again, clawing under my skin and pumping in my blood.“You seem to be taking your amnesia game way too seriously, so let me remind you of how it goes.” His thumb rubs my jaw like a lover’s caress when in fact it’s a Grim Reaper’s kiss.It’s cold.Everything about him is freezing.My pulse roars in my ears like a distant thunderstorm.He’s invading my space like a natural disaster, impossible to stop or prevent.Still, I manage to choke words out. “You think this is a game? What type of person pretends to have lost their memories?”“The type who doesn’t want people to know what they’ve done.”“What I’ve done?”“Shhh. Don’t talk.” He presses his thumb to my lips, and I can’t help the pulses taking flight under my skin. “When I speak, you listen.”

My Review

Yes, Yes, Yes!! Twisted, Astonishing, Unputdownable! This book will take everything you think you know about bully romance and knock you on your fanny! Nothing about this book was predictable. NOTHING! From the start I was on the edge of my seat. This book was slap full of insane, intriguing and the most mind-bendingly mysterious moments.

Forget adulting or anything else from the moment you start because I assure you… You.Won’t.Stop.Until.It’s.Done!! Then you will continue to check and scream out in frustration to see if more pages will magically appear!!

Reina is unexpected, she is a contradiction to everything you expect and you can’t help but to feel every emotion she is as she is going through it. The frustration she’s enduring as she discovered who she was through the eyes of others. Wow! Just Wow! That’s all I can and will give you. 😘 It leaves you feeling as perplexed as she is, you love and hate her as much as she does herself! I happen to love complex characters like herself and love the brilliance Rina displays when writing them! 🙌🏻 Ah-May-Zing!

Asher is the hot, popular, angry playboy. But something had to contribute to that deep rooted anger right? The way he acts towards his fiancé is confusing and frustrating, but it’s also hot, and sometimes scary. I love the mystery surrounding what’s driving him. He is baffled at times by Reina’s behavior but doesn’t trust her for anything. I’m so excited to see what’s coming in book two. Like I’m dying for this conclusion y’all!

My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐-  Rina Kent is the dark and mysterious queen. She never fails to deliver something that will leave us gasping for more. I was captivated and spent from a myriad of emotions this book ran me through, and I loved every heart dropping moment! I don’t know how I will make it until the next book. I need the conclusion, it’s like an obsession at this point. Lol 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-There is nothing extremely off the chain hotter than some Hate Sex!! 🔥 am I right?!?! Yup, so HOTT! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 TOTAL Cliffhanger! This is a duet and you WILL NOT reach resolution in this book!!

FOOL ME ONCE RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW




Title: Fool Me Once
Author: Nikki Ash
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: March 5, 2020

Blurb

I met Keegan when I was on the beach in Florida.
He literally crashed into my world.
I wasn’t looking for romance, but his two-dimpled charm made my heart go haywire.

We both had one thing in common: we were here to escape our realities.
One week. Just the two of us. Not a care in the world.
I didn’t know it at the time, but that week would forever change my life.

Four years later, and as fate would have it, Keegan and I are brought together again.
It’s as if the universe is telling us this is our second chance.
The more I get to know him, the harder I fall.
Falling hopelessly in love is inevitable with a man like him.

Only the joke’s on me, because the guy I’m falling for isn’t the man I thought he was.
You know how the saying goes: Fool me once…
I’ll be damned if I’m fooled again.

My Review

Swoon Y’all! I seriously Swooned, my heart fluttered. Every.Single.Time. Keegan was near my heart just melted people.  Blakely tried and failed to resist his charms. He was just so mouthwateringly perfect and she’d been through so much but she was beautiful, tough and sweet. GAH! I loved these two.😍 He was the distraction she needed, something good for her,  for once. He changed her life that week, her sisters life in ways they never could have predicted, but it was for the better. 

The precious secret baby, second chance romance will grab you from page one and not let you go till the very end. It’s full of unexpected twists and turns. Lots of sweet and sexy moments, as well as laugh out loud moments. Get ready to fall in love with 

Keegan, Blakely, Zane and the rest of the crew in this amazing story.  Told in dual POV with a perfectly Heart melting HEA you don’t miss this must read by Nikki Ash.

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! They are hotter than a beach 🏖 in Florida in the middle of summer! Yeah! That hot, my friends! 🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- NO CLIFFHANGER! I love this kind of HEA folks! 😍♥️😍






Excerpt

Just as I’m turning the page in my book, someone yells, “Watch out!” Unsure of where the voice is coming from, I look to the left and then to the right, but before I can grasp what’s happening, the circular object hits my hand, and my book flies out of my grasp and into the water.
“Shit! I’m so sorry.” A half-naked guy comes running over, sand kicking up around him as his strong legs pound into the ground. The closer he gets, the more of him I’m able to see, and holy shit, do I like what I see. Messy brown hair I could picture running my fingers through, tanned, smooth skin I would enjoy kissing and licking, and if I’m feeling frisky, biting.
My eyes rake over his tattooed, sculpted chest and down to his abs. Two-four-sex… I mean six. God damn! Look at that six-pack. He must work out, probably several times a day. Damn, I’d love for him to work me out…
As he jogs over, his corded arm muscles flex, making it appear as if the ink on his arms is coming alive, and I briefly imagine holding on to those arms while he fucks me good and hard. He runs past me, and I follow his every move. When he bends over, I check out his butt that’s hidden under his low-hanging board shorts as I fantasize about my legs wrapped around his waist and my heels digging into that butt…
But then he turns around, and in his hands is the now sopping wet copy of Wuthering Heights, and I instantly snap out of my lust-filled thoughts.
“Here you go,” he says sheepishly, the soaking wet book dangling from his fingers. Drops of saltwater fall down and land on my knee. My eyes meet his, and just as I’m about to snap at him, the corner of his mouth lifts into a nervous smile, and a single dimple pops out on his cheek, and once again, I’m momentarily distracted by just how good-looking he is.
“Thanks so much.” My reply drips with sarcasm. Taking the book from him, I examine the saturated, ruined pages, and mumble, “At least it wasn’t my mom’s copy.”
“I’m Keegan.” His half-smile turns into a cocky grin. Oh, hell, no…
“I’m not interested.” 
He throws his head back with the most beautiful laugh I’ve ever heard. It’s raspy and deep and sexy. My eyes land on his Adam’s apple, and my tongue darts out, wanting to lick down his throat.
“Fair enough.” He nods. “I really am sorry about the book.” His gorgeous forest green eyes meet mine. “Can I do something to make it up to you?”
“Like sleep with me?” I give him a playful smirk. I haven’t slept with many guys, but I’ve had a couple one-night stands over the last few years. My way of lashing out over my mom’s death.
“No.” He shakes his head. “We’ve already established you’re not interested. Although, I think, based on the way you were eye-fucking me on my way over here, I could probably convince you otherwise.”

IMPRISONED RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW

Title: Imprisoned
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: K.L. Donn
Genre: Dark Fairy Tales Retelling
Release Date: March 3, 2020
Once upon a time… 
Isn’t that how love stories begin? 
Not this time. This is not a love story. 
This is the untold story of Sleeping Beauty and how Princess Arianna of Graeline was conceived out of darkness and lies.
Born into a kingdom on the brink of disaster, she remains hidden away from the world as protection against a vengeful curse. 
A love curse.
Malevolence has invaded the land of mystery, and the dark mage has decided it’s time to collect on her favor. The price…
The princess.
Until the king calls for a savior. Or two?
Asher “Apollo” McCall and Matthew “Ares” Norbury have worked countless missions together. Named after the Greek gods they resembled, they were considered the biggest and baddest until tragedy struck. Their team was slaughtered and they were left for dead.
Neither man ever foresaw a life of peace, but gazing into the eyes of the young, defiant princess for the first time, they catch a glimpse of what could become their world. 
How far will they go to make the enigmatic royal theirs?
Kidnapping.
Torture.
Imprisonment.
Can these two “princes” beat the odds, save the princess, and live happily ever after?
Or is Arianna destined to die, imprisoned by a curse out of control?
(ENTER HERE)

My Review

Imprisoned is a fast paced version of the  “untold” story or sinister retelling or take on Sleeping Beauty. However, here our story is a little darker and sinister, with a bit of a paranormal vibe.  

Be ready to dive into a tale full of suspense, twists and turns as you read the story of Princess Arianna of Graeline, who was locked away as a means of protection for the cursed bestowed upon her from birth. Though she is a beautiful princess, she is not just a damsel in need of rescuing. She’s actually pretty tough and awesome and her chemistry with Apollo and Ares…Holy Crap is it ever smokin hot!! 

Asher “Apollo” McCall and Matthew “Ares” Norbury are our hot alpha-heroes that set out to save the princess. They were tough and had never really imagined much of a future until they saw her and she had them re-evaluating everything. 

Will they be able to save their princess or will the evil witch destroy the one they love?! 

I’m absolutely loving the Sinister Fairytales Collections series, my friends. So I will say, this take on Sleeping Beauty is definitely a different take. TBH I am new to this author, and I’m not really a PNR fan however, I still managed to enjoy this book. It wasn’t all that lengthy and it kept me engaged and entertained. It had suspense, mystery, good character development, and the chemistry was hot. All in all I was a happy girl so I flew right through it. 

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- Overall this was a pretty good read! Imprisoned was another great addition to the Sinister Fairytales Collection. 

🔥🔥🔥- There was yummy chemistry between the three MC’s in this book, y’all! Yes, Yes, it was definitely steamy! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- HEA. No cliffy!!

I was foolish enough to try to change the rules… and I lost. Luca—She was promised to me years ago. And he dared to take her from me. Dared to touch what was mine. I put an end to that. I hope he’s enjoying the view from his dirt room. Emilia—My beloved’s killer placed a ruby ring on my finger and called me his queen. But that red gem symbolizes something different for me. It represents the blood shed by those I love most. Hell was empty the day we wed. Because the devil was standing before me and said “I do.” Luca—I saw her as a possession. A shiny toy I didn’t want other boys to play with. But she’s so much more. Beautiful and brave and strong and broken all at once. She tastes like everything I’ve ever wanted. Emilia—Hidden and patient. I wait for the perfect time to seek my revenge. But slowly, I feel him possessing me. His heart is full of darkness… and I still want every inch of him. Hard as I try, I can’t escape loving this beautiful monster. Luca—I’m waiting patiently because I already know that she’s mine. Mine in a way that no one will ever understand. Even if she hasn’t yet realized it. For love, I’d do anything. For her, I’d do everything.

My Review

I seriously love everything Georgia Cates writes. I wasn’t quite sure exactly how I would connect with this book considering it was set around the same time I was born, but it was wonderful. 

Luca and Emilia were betrothed from the time they were children. Both the eldest children from powerful Mafia families it was a union which would happen whether they wanted it to or not.

Emilia is beautiful and sassy and just enough of a rebel to fight for what she really wants in her life.

She doesn’t want to be controlled or told who to marry when it’s not for love. She is going to fight Luca every step of the way. 

But is there really a way out? Not  when her life is already mapped out for her. When something devastatingly catastrophic happens what will her plan of action be? Will she step in and fulfill the role she was always meant to fulfill? By taking her rightful place as the Mafia Queen. Then she can serve in the revenge she desires! 

Luca doesn’t take kindly to someone trying to take what’s his, and he sure isn’t going to share. He can’t let people get away with those things and must put them in their places. He’s mean and borderline cruel, but you can also make out the hint of the good guy beneath that exterior. 

He loves his family.  He is gorgeous and cruel and rules with an iron fist. But he looks at her and she can almost make him melt at times. Only she can spark emotions of guilt in this ruthless man. He will make Emilia his wife, just like was promised and she will give him a son.  Or else! I absolutely love books where an author can turn the unredeemable into the lovable! 😍

I loved the progression of their relationship. This wasn’t overnight, but a gradual. The change from where she started to her loyalty to him at the end was GAH! Everything! I love the interaction between his family and her. 

This was definitely a hate to love transformation and it was fabulous to read. For a far dark mafia read I want to reassure people this doesn’t get descriptively scary like some can. So it really sticks more with Luca and Emilia and their road to love. 

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐- So you will start this book absolutely hating Luca but by the ending feel completely different about him and his family. I loved Emilia from the first page. She’s so strong and beautiful! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Warning- The first encounter although consensual is quite brutal. But as their relationship changes their encounters grow hotter and sweeter and just amazingly sensual to read! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-!!You begin to wonder if it will ever happen, but you do in fact get a HEA. 😍

🔫 Trigger Warning-This is a Mafia romance therefore there are things that happen that are indicative of the mafia lifestyle and the violence, cruelty and drug usage that surrounds that lifestyle. The only things that are really described in detail are the drug use. If you are bothered by things of this nature this may not be the book for you. If you have concerns you can PM for more information.

Blurb:There’s a rule in Crowne Hall: never look a Crowne in the eyes.It protects us more than them.I broke it once, the night Grayson Crowne mistook me for his true love and stole my first kiss. I’ve regretted it every day since.He hates me.He torments me.He won’t let me go, because that night he whispered a secret against my lips not meant for me. Grayson Crowne, heir to the Crowne empire and notorious playboy prince is… a virgin.I signed a contract in my heart’s blood as much as ink: help him get back his love, repair what I broke. Give him my body, my soul, my heart, let him use all of me, so when the time comes to marry her, he won’t need me.I shouldn’t need him.But he’s my stolen soulmate, and I’m at his mercy.

Oh My God!! I JUST CAN’T. Don’t do me like this Mary Catherine! I’m not alright, my friends! 😭 I need to know what’s happening next , like I need air in my lungs. 

Grayson Crowne has broken my heart, he melted my heart, ripped out my heart. I should hate everything about him. He is cruel, controlling, and seems to lack empathy where most people are concerned.  But there is so much more to him than what he allows others to see. Underneath the composed layers of cruelty is a good guy worthy of our sweet beautiful Story, I just know he is in there. 

However, the Gorgeously Cruel sexy and devious Grayson Crowne somehow still managed to capture the heart of Storybook Hale. She is all that’s beautiful and good in this world, yet life continues to take dump after dump on her. She just wants to do her job and blend into the background, never putting her heart at risk to be crushed again,  like it was before by someone in a social class high above her.

 Gray really is just awful, but you know there’s a decent guy, whose heart isn’t a frozen block of ice, a sweet gentle and tender guy underneath the horrible top layers. If he would just let Story peel away the layers and unveil the man she knows lies beneath. 

Storybook is sassy and ballsy and the perfect one to snap back at Gray. She evokes feelings and emotions in him that bother him on so many different levels.

 I love her combative attitude with him. In a world of beautiful people, She has this understated sexiness and sweetness he can’t help but be drawn to. Story knows there is more to Grayson than he allows everyone to see because she has been watching him, fantasizing about him for years. But how many times will she allow him to hurt her before she walks away for good? Or will she allow herself to become a part of history repeating itself? 

I love the emotional beat down this book served me! One moment smiles cover my face at the banter between these two characters and then in the next chapter I’m literally devastated at the cruelty one of my loves is enduring! Yes, Yes, Yes! 

This is Dark, and Cruel and Angsty and Super Sexy. It’s full of twisted characters, secrets and lies that will have you wanting to chuck your kindle across the room. 

 

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐- Dark Romance fans, this for y’all , loves!! This starts off with hawtness!! if you are looking for some sweet, sappy love story that makes your heart go pitter patter, this ain’t it! It has its moments, but mostly you are going to get back and forth banter, heat, frustration, angst. All the amazingness I FLOVE! ♥️🔥♥️🔥

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-The fact that they fought like hell the way they did not for so long made this so much hotter when they threw down. HOLY god!! 🧨So many times I didn’t know if they were about to fight or well… um you know🤭!🔥🥵🔥 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪Cliffy Baby!! Be ready to set that count down for book two. 

🔫 Trigger Warning-This is a dark romance and does have scenes of bullying and cruelty. If you are bothered by things of that nature this may not be the book for you. If you have concerns you can PM for more information. 

About the Author:I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.I wanted to be a marine biologist.An actor.A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Bittersweet Love Release Blitz & Review

Blurb

Vincent Maddox is the bane of my existence.

The cocky jerk with the God complex has made it his mission to make my life miserable since the day I moved to Chicago.

New job. New town. New start.

That is until my long-distance boyfriend decided to break up with me…via text.

Heart break can make you do stupid things. In my case, it made me drink way too much whiskey and hook up with my a-hole arch nemesis.

Vince Maddox is the bane of my existence…or is he?

HOLY HOT HELL PEOPLE!  Talk about a panty flinger y’all!! I’m talking one smoldering look from Vince and panties just drop.

I was so excited to find out we were getting a novella about Lauren Michaels, Charley’s sweet and sassy BFF from the Bittersweet Duet. BTW if you haven’t read the Bittersweet Duet now is the perfect time. Any whoo! 

This little novella y’all!! 

I mean Damn! Talk about packing a punch. It was so freakin phenomenal and I’m legit in AWE that she did all that in such a short little novella. Y’all. I mean, It’s insanity, it’s that freakin Awesome!🤩🤩. The chemistry and bantering back and forth between Lauren and Vince was ultimate foreplay goals. This was toeing the line of I hate you, I love you perfection, If they weren’t fighting they were fu… 🤭 well you know. 

Lauren’s character is sassy and beyond gorgeous. She’s used to combat(think sexy killer heels instead of boots though) when it comes to Vince. They can’t get along for anything. When she’s dealt a blow from her long distance boyfriend that she didn’t see coming, she sees a different side to Vince when he steps in at the right place, right time. Or is it right? But can this be more than just a rebound hookup or did their stars align because Vince was meant to put the pieces of her heart back together all along?

“ It’s a shame God made Satan so perfect.”   -Vincent Maddox 

Vince is EVERYTHING I want in my Alpha-hole, bad boy, book boyfriends! He’s fine, sarcastic, unapologetically honest( even when brutally so), you can look into his eyes and you can almost swear you see the sweeter, more caring and gentle side in there.

Of course it’s hidden below the layers of rude, ego, hot, sexy, rugged, stubborn man. What happens when Lauren finds out how many licks it takes to get to the ooey gooey sweet parts of Vincent’s heart? Will he ensure her future love line includes him? 

“Vincent Maddox is my arch nemesis.  The bane of my existence.” -Lauren Michaels 

 I’m telling you friends do not miss this one. I literally devoured this hella hot nugget of greatness in like two and half hours. I was in it from the first page and I wasn’t letting go until the end. This is part of the Written in the Stars Series, a collection of sexy stand-alone novellas based on Zodiac signs and they are fabulous.  

 My Cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book! 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️-INFINITE STARS ✨ If you are a fan of enemies to lovers, super sexy office romances then this is the perfect novella for you. With sarcastic and sassy characters, quick witted banter, and sinfully sexy scenes for DAYS!! It will leave you super satisfied yet wishful for more of the deliciousness that was this quickly read treat. QB Tyler’s brilliance shines with her attention to every heartfelt emotion and detail. She will have you lol’ing with her hilarious one-liners, and sarcastic jabs. She continues to blow me away with every book she writes, her work is flawless, effortless and magical and I want more the second I finish. 

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥- Okay, so think of the hottest sexiest “sex” songs ever, and how hot theymake you feel! Yaasss! These scenes ARE HOTTER! Like Seventh Circle of Hades kinda hot, friends. 🥵

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- This ending was LIFE y’all!

My Review

Holy Moly!! Y’all!!  I am loving these Sinister Fairytales and Mirage, OMG! Let me just tell you it’s right up there with my favorites of them. This one is a take on Aladdin. But if you’re looking for it to be just like Aladdin it won’t be. I mean there are a few similarities, but it’s just so amazing all on its own! If you had never even heard of the original story you would still love this. 

Axel (our Hero) is this sexy, street fighter with a heart of gold. He grew up rough, tough and poor. But in the street fighting world he’s kicking rear and taking names. When he is approached with an offer to be an exclusive fighter for renowned Heart surgeon Jasper Lafar, it seems almost too good to be true. There is most definitely something untrustworthy about Jasper. But the allure of Jasper’s fiancé, the beautiful and sweet Jaslyn, whom Axel is sure Jasper is mistreating, is too much to resist so Axel accepts the job. 

Jaslyn feels trapped, stuck in her pretty dark mansion . No one knows the suffering she endures daily at the hands of her fiancé. She’s a tough girl, she puts up with so much more that most could even fathom. When Axel came along she couldn’t help but be drawn to this gorgeous street fighter who vows to protect her. But will their attraction become too much and will they give into temptation? If Jasper were to suspect they were anything to each other it cost them everything, including their lives. Will they take that risk? 

This book is good y’all! I really won’t say more because I don’t want to give anything away. It got me so excited, super frustrated, on edge. It was Angsty and full of suspense. It had heat and sweet moments. It had a frustratingly jaw dropping cliffhanger! Another great addition to the Sinister Fairytales collection! 

 My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐⭐— Jaslyn and Axel are going to ruin me before this is all over. I just know it!!  This book left me breathless y’all! 😱

🔥🔥🔥🔥- Were these the office the charts hottest scenes ever, well no. But they were sweet and had heat and that was great to me! I wasn’t disappointed AT ALL! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪 YOU’VE BEEN WARNED! Cliffhanger Alert!! This book ends on a cliffhanger. 

C.M. Radcliff lives in Pennsylvania with her husband and two demon children. Known as the Psycho Queen, she speaks fluent sarcasm, dark humor, and has the mouth of a sailor. If she isn’t reading or writing, she’s probably on an adventure with her little family.
