Blind Side Release Blitz & Review

 

Blind Side by Kandi Steiner is now live!

 

Blind Side is a fake dating sports romance that early readers are calling Kandi’s spiciest book yet! Add in that the heroine is a virgin and takes “lessons” from our star athlete Hero on how to please herself, and this is one hot summer release you won’t want to miss!⁣

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐬𝐭 𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐠𝐞 𝐟𝐨𝐨𝐭𝐛𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐬𝐚𝐟𝐞𝐭𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐧𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐦𝐞 𝐭𝐨 𝐛𝐞 𝐡𝐢𝐬 𝐟𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐠𝐢𝐫𝐥𝐟𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐝.⁣

𝐀𝐧𝐝 𝐈 𝐣𝐮𝐬𝐭 𝐚𝐬𝐤𝐞𝐝 𝐡𝐢𝐦 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐚𝐤𝐞 𝐦𝐲 𝐯𝐢𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐭𝐲.⁣

Clay Johnson has the abs of Adonis and the deadly smirk of the devil, himself. There’s hardly a day he’s not headline material during football season, and never a day he isn’t a bullseye target for every girl on campus.⁣

He used to be the easiest of all the players for me to wrangle as the Public Relations Coordinator, but after a nasty breakup with his high school sweetheart, he’s a mess.⁣

And a complete pain in my ass.⁣

We meet to discuss his behavior and review media relations standards. But when he witnesses how I fall to pieces in front of my guitar-toting crush, his wheels start turning. And he cooks up this absurd plan.⁣

He helps me get noticed. ⁣
I help him make his ex jealous. ⁣
All by pretending to be in a relationship.⁣

What he doesn’t realize is that this bookworm is a virgin, and far from versed in seducing a musician. So, to sweeten the deal, I convince him to help me — not just to get my crush’s attention, but to knock his socks off once I have it.⁣

But the more I come unraveled at the hands of Clay Johnson, the more trouble I have discerning what’s fake and what’s undoubtedly real — particularly, the way my heart flutters every time that breathtaking man touches me.⁣

We set the rules. We put the safeguards in place.⁣

But they say rules are meant to be broken.⁣
They probably should have added that hearts are, too.⁣

My Review


My friends. I am absolutely cuckoo for Clay and Giana!🥰 I happen to love this take on a new adult/sports romance, which is a pretty common trope right now. Author Kandi Steiner attacks Clay and Giana’s story with gusto, giving us two extremely loveable characters that instantly captured my heart. With an attention grabbing storyline from the get go you will be instantly addicted to all things Giana and Clay. Y’all ready for this? Because this is a little bit sweet, a little bit swoony, and whole lotta sexy. Pearl Clutchers get ta clutchin’ because this is the 🔥HOTTEST 🔥virgin heroine romance this girl has ever read!🥵

Clay is still reeling from a shocking and unexpected dumping courtesy of his highschool sweetheart when he happens to notice the awkwardly adorable yet kind of hot Public Relations Coordinator for his team is losing it a bit over the musician at the place where they are having a business meeting. He immediately comes up with an idea. He can help Giana get the musician’s attention and she can help him make his ex jealous. Win Win.They form a plan. They make rules. They begin their lessons Then O-M-G! The lessons, I couldn’t get enough of the lessons. (Fanning myself just think about them) Giana has a special request of her own. These two are fun, flirty, so freaking hot together. The lines quickly start to blur. Is it possible this fake relationship is becoming real?  But the times when they talked and learned about each others growing up. It was just sweet and vulnerable and in those moments you just knew they were meant to be together.

Here are just a few things you can expect from Blind Side. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Fantastically Phenomenal Five Star Read

🏈 A gorgeous Hero who will frustrate you as well as make your heart flutter

👓A Fake/Opposites Attract Relationship

🏈 A beautiful, sweet, and sassy heroine

💋Ex/Other people causing drama

🏈Scorching Hot Scenes

👓Complete Standalone but will be more in this world

The Ruthless Groom Release Blast & Review

 

The Ruthless Groom by Monica Murphy is now live!

 

I didn’t plan to marry a reclusive heiress. Lucky for me, I find myself attracted to my beautiful new bride. Our arranged marriage connects two powerful companies. That we’re compatible between the sheets is a bonus, but I didn’t bargain on her ex showing up at the wedding reception uninvited.

That pushed me right over the edge.

I protect what’s mine, and Charlotte is now mine, whether she likes it or not. Our honeymoon is a disaster in paradise. I’m angry. She’s resentful. All those swirling emotions explode in the most physical ways.

But even as I’m drawn closer to my new wife, there’s still a threat looming out there. Seamus McTiernan is determined to destroy what we’ve created.

I won’t let anything tear us apart.

He has no idea who he’s dealing with. I will end him.

Watch me.

My Review

Oh hot dog!! I am so digging Perry and Charlotte and couldn’t wait to get more of their story after we left off at the end of The Reluctant Bride. Luckily The Ruthless Groom, book 2 in the Arranged Marriage trilogy, picks right up where it left off. I was just as drawn into this second installment of Perry and Charlotte’s trilogy as I was the first. I will say this story is packed full of delectably dirty scenes, engaging storyline and fantastic characters

This book finds Perry and Charlotte reaping the benefits of their arrangement and giving into their explosive chemistry. But a blast from Charlotte’s past brings out a more jealous, possessive, and distrustful side of Perry we hadn’t seen before. I would say we’re for sure seeing Winston Constantine’s brother and the son of Caroline Constantine. He may have some struggles but he’s super protective and territorial over what is his, and his new wife is his in every way

How will Charlotte and Perry navigate their growing feelings while also battling distrust towards each other? I loved seeing deeper into these characters.  As the layers are being peeled back, and as they are beginning to question if their arranged marriage could have the potential to be more than either of them could have ever imagined. 

Y’all! Protective Perry is Positively Perfect! Even when he is frustrating me, I’m obsessed with him. These two are like the seventh circle of hell hot. They go at each other when they are mad and each can give as good as they get. They are angry at their situation at the lack of control they have over their own lives. But either way they are fantastically explosive together. I find myself wondering when I turn to the next page will there be fighting or you know… 😏

This book has tons going for it but it ends on a jaw dropping cliffhanger. You MUST read The Reluctant Bride before reading this book. Neither is super long but they are addictive so trust me when I say you will plow right through them. Here are just a few things you can expect from The Ruthless Groom. 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A Phenomenal Five Star Read

🖤 A Billionaire Alpha Hero who will frustrate you

💍 Arranged Marriage

💕 A beautiful and sweet heroine

🖤 The unforgettable Midnight Dynasty world.

🔥Scorching Hot Scenes 

🌪 Surprising Twists

Misconception Release Blitz & Review




Title: Misconception
A Coming Home Series Standalone
Author: Kaylee Ryan
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 7, 2022

BLURB
Hudson


I didn’t plan on kissing my best friend’s twin sister… or falling for her. But it happened all the same. It’s always been Riley, but after I finally get the chance to taste her lips, she ghosts me.

Not exactly the response I was hoping for. Getting out of town for a while, and giving her space, seemed like the best thing for us both. Until the night before my year overseas, and she ended up in my bed.

I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’ve ever experienced, but returning home to find her with a newborn and knowing she’s moved on is a sucker punch to the gut. She can push me away all she wants, but the sexy single mom better get used to me being around, because I’m home to stay.


Riley

I’ve had a thing for Hudson Fleming for as long as I can remember. But I couldn’t get past his friendship with my sister. When I hear that he’s planning on leaving town, I know it’s now or never. Spending the night with him changes my life¾in more ways than one.

Now he’s halfway around the world, and I’m pregnant. Having this baby alone doesn’t scare me half as much as my feelings for Hudson.

When he returns to town, I’m torn between loving and hating him. How can I not since he gave me the greatest gift, then walked away from us both? And now he wants to be a family… like he didn’t break my heart into a million pieces.

My Review

OMG!! Y’all this book was SO GOOD. I mean a twin sister’s BFF/friends-to-lovers/secret baby romance. Heck yeah.🤩  I was all about this book. It was just what I needed in my life right now. I get in kicks where I read a LOT of dark romance and I have been in one lately, but I absolutely need to break up the dark at times and Kaylee Ryan is one of my go to favorites. You just can’t help but to fall head over heels for this author’s characters. Her heroes are the trifecta. Swoony, sweet and oh so smexy. 🔥 Her heroines are fun and flirty and I would most definitely be friends with them all IRL. 

Misconception is Hudson and Riley’s story and part of the Coming Home Series. Which is a fabulous series, so if you haven’t checked it out yet I highly recommend doing so. Each story is a standalone. Anywho…

For years Hudson and Riley have secretly harbored feelings for each other. They run in the same circle of friends and are always around each other. Though assumptions about how the other feels and maybe their biggest hurdle of all is Riley’s twin sister and Hudson’s long term BFF, Raven. The thought of her being upset  has caused neither to make a move…up until now. An unexpected kiss, rash decisions and alcohol lead to an unforgettable journey that will melt your heart, break your heart, and then heal your heart. 🥺

Fall in love with Hudson, Riley and their entire crew in this phenomenally fantastic story that will have you all up in your feels. 🥰 Are you ready to be left feeling all warm and fuzzy with the best kinds of book hangover? Then do yourself a favor and grab Misconception today. It’s sweet, full of heat, and pretty quick to read. Perfect for a hot summer night. Five My Heart’s all a Flutterin’ Stars⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

What Lovers Do Release Blitz & Review

What Lovers Do by Jewel E. Ann is now live!

From bestselling author, Jewel E. Ann, comes a hilarious secret lovers story that redefines the meaning of friendship. 

Shep’s found the female version of himself … and he thinks she’s perfect—perfectly unavailable.

Everyone loves Shep, the charismatic employee at Scottsdale’s newest pet store. He has shared custody of his two dogs with his annoying ex-wife and a smile that can disarm most women.

Except … Dr. Sophie Ryan. 

What starts out as a disastrous first meeting, involving a coffee catastrophe and mistaken flirting, turns into an unconventional friendship.

Fake phone sex. 

Dog park dates. 

And eighteen holes of golf. 

The problem? Sophie’s taken herself out of the dating pool for a mysterious reason, imprisoning Shep in the friend zone for eternity.

As their competitive personalities hit a boiling point, the gloves come off and so do their clothes. When Sophie’s “real” life threatens their relationship, can Shep let go of his past to chase the one that might get away?

My Review

What Lovers Do is an amazingly charming and hilariously adorable and sexy, friends to lovers romance between two individuals who are getting a second chance at love. So while it’s not their second chance with each other, it’s definitely a second chance for sure.

Jewel E. Ann is a one-click author for me and once again she proves why that is in this refreshingly unexpected and unforgettable story.

Sophie is such an amazing character. She’s unselfish and caring and when it comes to relationships maybe a bit gullible. She’s so in love with the thought of being in love it has gotten her into quite the pickle many times. It’s why she finds herself currently stuck in this horrible situation she’s in when she meets Shep at the pet store where he works. He’s gorgeous, charming and loves animals. She sure doesn’t need another complication but… he’s just so perfectly cute and the more time she spends with Shep the more she realizes just how much they have in common. How wonderful he is… for a friend that is, obviously. 🙄 

Shep is competitive, sexy, funny, loves animals and is super attracted to the adorable and quirky Sophie. He loves to go out, play golf and hang with friends. He really wants to explore this new found friendship with Sophie and spend as much time getting to know her as possible. But the more time he spends the more it seems like she’s hiding something.

This book will have you rolling in laughter. The banter can’t be beat. It will melt your heart as well as your kindle. The combination of all the emotions as well as the humor is a gift of which is so unique to a Jewel E. Ann book. She has worked so hard to finely tune her craft in these ways to capture every emotion under the sun and have us hanging on every word from start to finish. What Lovers Do is fun, flirty, engaging, sensual and swoony. It’s.Everything!! You DO NOT want to miss out. 🤩🥰🔥🥵🥰🤩

A Million Kisses In Your Lifetime Release Blitz & Review

A Million Kisses in Your Lifetime by Monica Murphy is now live!

Wren Beaumont is many things.

Beautiful.
Smart.
Sweet.
Innocent.

At Lancaster Prep, the girls love her. They all want to be her friend. Only I see Wren for who she really is.

A repressed little virgin who keeps her feelings locked up so tight she’s probably close to bursting. She thinks she’s above us all.

Even me.

I shouldn’t be drawn to her. She’s not my type.

Until we’re forced to work together in class and realize we might have more things in common than we originally thought. Soon enough I find myself completely obsessed. I will do anything for this girl to make her fall in love with me.

Anything.

My Review

Monica Murphy perfectly captures everything and so much more that I love about the NA, the High School Seniors, Virgin Heroine, Enemies-to-lovers genre. The love story between Wren Beaumont and Crew Lancaster is the perfect blend of a little angst, a little bully, a lot unexpected. With plenty of sweet, swoony and sexy with a beautiful poignance and magical wonder.

Like that of first love and self discovery but also with a fun, flirty and almost dare I say…slightly fairytale-like (at times) feel to it because of the elite world our characters are brought up in and the surprisingly sweet and thoughtful ways in which we see our young Crew trying to romance Wren. It makes him seem older, yet still appearing the young and playful highschool senior he is. 

This is such a sweet love story and a great story of character growth. Wren has such a sense of self worth and high expectations for herself. I love that even when she grows closer to Crew he does not change those things about her but is a source of encouragement for her. While she feels the pressures from society, her family, from friends, she has a very strong sense of self awareness and will do what SHE feels is best for her in the end. 

With Crew we see her bring the more serious side out of this campus king, the playboy. When that happens he is truly dream  book boyfriend goals for sure. He was the perfect pairing for Wren as he brings out some sass and feistiness in her where she never used to have any bite and would just take everything others would say to her. I absolutely loved their banter back and forth. 

Crew at first comes across as arrogant and seems as though he can have anyone he wants and maybe Wren would be just a challenge for him but it is super clear from early on that it’s so much more for him. The little things he does for his “Birdy”, the ways he goes about getting to know her, and finding out what is important to her. It legit melted this gals heart. SWOON Y’all!! 🥰

So this might have been a relatively slow burn but it had some excellent dirty talkin’!!

Loved,Loved,and Devoured every second of this book from the start to the end. A Million Kisses In Your Lifetime is not to be missed. Would read this A Million Times in MY Lifetime!! I need A Million 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”

About the book:

Malice was a broken man. A leader with a cracked crown.

Healing wrapped in good intentions.

I’m a pawn, and it’s up to me to remind these men that they’re stronger together.

I just pray that this fight for power won’t tear us all apart

HOLY SWEET HELL!! 😱 Could this book be anymore perfect?! CoraLee has masterfully wrapped up the Malice Mafia trilogy in a way that will gut you, consume you, devastate you, frustrate you, but one hundred percent leave you feeling utterly fulfilled. This final installment will get you so far up in your feelings, y’all get ready. 😭🥺😭 The devastation this book delivers dang near killed me. Prepare yourself to see these characters undergo so much growth. We legit see completely different and better ( who would have thought they could get more awesome??) sides to them. Such darkness we saw from them in the past two books gives way to some light and softer sides we hadn’t seen from them before. 🥰

Nick “Malice” Civella is unexpectedly willing to give up everything for his Juliet. Pride and competitive drive to beat his big brother just might cost William everything, and Anthony the unpredictable psychopath who has completely stolen our hearts will be the glue that holds everyone together with his loyalty and comedic relief. But the biggest transformation is from Juliet. This gal will show you just how strong she truly is and will put those Civella boys in their place. 💪🏻They will learn to put up or shut up when she lays down what she will take and what she will not. I loved to see this side of her. She is most def the queen boss now. 👑

This entire book had me hooked. I was already addicted to the guys, Juliet and Grams before but now it’s on a whole other level. I laughed and I cried. I got angry at times and the angst about did me in. But this book hurt my heart as much as it healed it. I got the exact closure I needed. If I could have special ordered exactly what I wanted in the wrap up for this series it would be exactly what CoraLee delivered. Actually that’s not true. CoraLee gave me things I didn’t even know I needed and more. There was absolutely some super devastation in this story as well, but I’m not mad. I think for these characters to end up where they were destined to go we had to endure the heartbreaking parts of their journey too. 

Full of suspense, surprises, fighting and gore, sinful deliciousness, and unpredicted softer and sweeter moments out of our irredeemably redeemed Civella men. Grudge will close this series in the most extraordinary of ways. The engaging and phenomenally gifted writing by CoraLee June will keep you entranced from beginning to the very end, where you will sigh, cry and reluctantly let these characters go. Then you will be left feening for the next book by CoraLee, which can’t come soon enough for me.  All the stars in the galaxy for Grudge.  ⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫⭐️✨💫

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!!

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!!
