Losing my innocence at thirteen, in the most brutal way, changed me. My kidnapper stole my childhood and tried to break me. The knowledge my father orchestrated the entire situation hardened my heart, and instead of grieving his death, I celebrated it.

One down. Many more to go.

My burning need for revenge has only grown over the years, keeping me focused on my goals and enabling my rise to power.

Made men are weak. A pretty face and the promise of a good time easily distracts them.

Now, I’m in charge.

Men bow before 𝘮𝘦.

Except for 𝘩𝘪𝘮—the brother of my abductor. Massimo fights me every step of the way, but I’m not about to let the explosive chemistry between us deter me from my chosen path. His family is my enemy. 𝘏𝘦 is my enemy, even if he doesn’t know it yet.

I won’t stop until all those who wronged me are punished.

By the time they realize I’m coming, it will be too late.

They tried to take everything from me.

But where they failed, I will succeed.

Unless 𝘩𝘦 becomes 𝘮𝘺 weakness.

My Review

Holy Freaking Moly!! This is truly a masterpiece the likes of which I have never read anything quite like before. Siobhan Davis delivers her most remarkable and unforgettable story to date!! I absolutely love how she has really got into her writing groove when it comes to writing dark mafia romance but this story was something even more uniquely unexpected. I went in fully expecting it to be flipping amazing. But amazing doesn’t even begin to capture just how phenomenal this story truly was. 

An unforgettable heroine with a past so devastating and tragic I was shook but couldn’t step away because this story was so addictive and I was beyond immersed in Catarina’s story. I couldn’t put this book down. I had to know what happened that made her who she is and why she was the way she is now as an adult. How she became the very embodiment of revenge and retaliation. I love how her character is written. How she encompasses everything throughout her journey, hurt and heart, hatred and healing. She’s complex and all consuming and so well written. Unlike any character from any book I have ever read before. Totally unique and one I will not soon forget. 

Massimo is the perfect man for her. He saw her for what she was and wanted her to see herself as he did. He wanted her to see him as the perfect King to her Queen. He was just enough Alpha and strong but at the same time patient and firm but not cruel. He knew just how to handle her. The chemistry between these two was utterly explosive. I’m trying not to give anything specific away here as that is not nice in my opinion. The deliciousness is in the details my friends and let me tell you this author spared NO.ATTENTION.TO.DETAILS and I will let her deliver those to you with her words in this wonderful book. It was IMO perfection! 

If you need a fantastically fabulous book to kick start your summer… Vengeance of a Mafia Queen has it all. 

✔️Dark and Deliciously Dynamic Characters

✔️An unforgettably phenomenal storyline

✔️Scorching Hot Chemistry 

✔️Twists and Turns for Days

✔️Amazing Attention to Details

✔️Heartbreak 💔, Healing ❤️‍🩹 , and a HEA

If you read nothing else this month read VOAMQ!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The first man I loved was his best friend.

My plan was to meet a boy, fall in love, and live happily ever after.

That ended when my boyfriend died and left me half of his business.

There’s just one problem: We hate each other.

Jax and I have been rivals since childhood.

He wants me out of the business, but it’s all I have left.

The more time we spend together, the more we question if we were ever rivals at all.

Will my last love be his best friend?

Or will we destroy each other?

My Review

Get Ready To Cry Y’all!! Only Rivals, book one in the Only You series and a second generation spin off of the Blue Beech and Twisted Fox series’ is an enemies to lovers, second chance, love after loss romance. With plenty of angst, steam, and all the feels.

Only Rivals is the journey of Jax and Amelia.  His ex… err, almost ex? However the cookie crumbles. His recently dead best friend’s fiancée. This complex dynamic plays such an intricate part of the story. I promise it’s a lot less Jerry Springer and really emotional and engaging to read. Jax is so angry and his character is frustrating at times you want to just shake him but this big tough guy is struggling with some big emotions and as frustrated as I was with him I felt for him so badly too. I needed his vitriol to end though. The level of devastation I was feeling every time he was spewing words of hatred and blame at Amelia was really high. I was like I can’t take it anymore. PLEASE Make it stop!! 

But Amelia. Holy Moly. I can’t even imagine. Any of it. But Ms. Ferrell was able to bring in the emotional lows that we needed to connect to Amelia’s character. To sympathize with her. To grieve, to process, to begin to heal right along with her. I really liked her journey. I will be honest my heart literally shattered at times with the hateful things Jax said to her. I was like how much more can one person possibly be broken? It was brutal to read. But that is what made it so much more rewarding when he finally had his awakening and turned his attitude around. 

This definitely is steamy and has tension for days. They have plenty of what I call “ banter o’hate” back and forth. They have chemistry which is ready to strike as hot as their tempers when they get near each other. They both are suffering with so much hurt that it’s understandable they would have the ability to actually help each other heal. They have a shared history so in my opinion they seemed like they were always soulmates who just needed to fulfill another purpose. Maybe someone else needed them more for a bit. But in the end, inevitably those who are supposed to be will always find their way back to each other.  4.5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

“I’ll take them!”

That’s what I tell the social worker when my pre-k student and his baby brother need an emergency foster placement. I’ll do anything to keep the brothers from being split up. But my apartment’s flooded and there’s only one house I can take them to on such short notice…his.

Knox Daniels, my older brother’s best friend, offers his new place without hesitation. He’s not moving back to our tiny town until next month—that’s when all our hotshot firefighters are returning for their one and only chance to rebuild our fathers’ fallen, iconic crew.

It doesn’t matter that I’ve been silently in love with Knox since we were kids. It can’t matter that we pretend that reckless prom night kiss never happened. It won’t matter that my feelings for him could destroy his lifelong friendship with my brother and threaten the certification of their hotshot crew. Because I’ll be out of his house long before he gets back.

Except Knox just walked in…a month early. And the icing on this awkward cake? He’s gorgeous as always and I’m covered in baby puke. He takes one look at the boys and tells me we can make this work—

We can temporarily fake a relationship to keep them from being separated by the system.

Suddenly, everything matters.

My Review 

img_6780

Reason to Believe is an amazingly wonderful story of inevitable love. It’s everything heartwarming and yummy about small town, forbidden, brothers best-friends, roommates to lovers, forced proximity romance. Knox and Harper’s story has it all. Adorable kiddos, hot firefighters, so much tension and steam you will lose your mind!! So much more that I won’t spoil it because it’s too good and I recommend this book for everyone because it hits on so many great tropes. 

Harper has loved Knox her entire life. He broke her heart seven years ago after an unforgettable moment together followed by him immediately putting her firmly in the “friend’s box” due to a warning by her brother who also happens to be Knox’s best friend, Ryker. Harper went on and became a teacher and opened her own preschool. When an accident leaves one of her students and his baby brother at the risk of being separated she immediately jumps in ready to help. She finds herself having to call on Knox to help her out with a place to go and stay for a few days. 

Knox has deep feelings for Harper but he has never been able to act on them. When he shows up early back at home he is shocked by what he finds. But he is committed to helping Harper no matter what. This situation proves to be life changing for all involved. 

This book was my first by this author but I guarantee you it will definitely not be my last.  I was astounded by her ability to bring you into her character’s world. She legit sucked me right into this story. I felt all the feelings and my heart broke and then was patched back up by the end. We had funny moments, tear filled moments, super steamy moments and heart melting moments. With a great cast of secondary characters this book will definitely put your emotions through the ringer and every second will be worth it!! Being a foster mom myself I love the true and authentic experience this author portrays in this. This is what it’s like for us, what our hearts feel like in these situations. I think it’s amazing to utilize this type of platform to bring a little awareness. 💕

Grab this amazing story today!!

Blurb:I met Colt Malene when I was fourteen years old. And it seems I’ve never recovered.He became the headstrong star quarterback in a town that idolized high school football titles. Meanwhile, I was the coach’s dutiful perfectionist daughter, never daring to step out of line. We should have stayed far away from each other but we didn’t. And the volatile fallout was unbearable. More than a decade has passed and now my father is dying. He wants to make amends. He wants to be forgiven for the role he played in Colt’s ruinous downfall and my painful heartbreak. To give a dying man some peace, Colt and I agree to a plan. While Colt is here in town, we pretend to date. We pretend to like each other. We pretend that the past is buried and forgotten. But with one reckless, passionate act we carve a new future. Leading to a fate we never suspected. In the middle of a storm we never saw coming. And an ending no one could have predicted…

My Review

Holy Cow! This book was AMAZING! I loved Till It Hurts, but this story is on a whole other level. Colt and Susanna’s journey is unforgettable, unputdownable, emotionally gripping and just all around a perfect second chance/fake relationship/opposites attract tale. 

Cole Malene is a dream of a book boyfriend. He’s got some issues from childhood that make him anti-commitment. He’s not looking for anything that will keep him in one place too long, but he also has a huge heart of gold. He’s come a long way in repairing his relationship with his sister and his best friend and is a loyal and dependable guy, who while pup sitting his sister and BIL’s doggo while they are on their honeymoon, decided to reach out and visit with his old high school football coach. This coach happens to be the one who he had a major falling out with ten years before, and who also happens to be the father of the one and only girl he’s ever loved. She’s back home now caring for her dad who is losing his battle with cancer and this finds these former lovers thrown together and spending to make her dad happy in his limited time. 

Susanna Toledo is beautiful and smart and a dedicated daughter. She is humble and truly doesn’t understand how amazing she really is. When she moves back home to care for her dying father she never imagined she would find herself spending time with her high school forbidden love, Colt Malene. What stays out as a way to make her dad happy by spending time together quickly becomes so much more. 

I just love the complexity of these characters and their history. This story hits on all the feels and has so many real life aspects in it which makes it not only easy to follow but interesting and relatable. This book glows flawlessly from start to finish and has a phenomenal cast of characters. Be prepared to laugh, cry, swoon, swear and sigh in giddy happiness. Pick up Till Next Time today!

My Review

Well friends, my favorite slice my heart and put it back together author, Jewel E. Ann has written another masterpiece that will impact this girl’s heart FOREVER!! 

For Lucy was so much more than I could have ever imagined I was getting and it was magical. Every tear inducing, gut wrenching, humblingly hilarious, never gonna be the same after this moment. 

This story is so real and raw, so true to life and that’s what made it so much easier for me to fall right into every word, emotion, every sentence. To fall in love with these tragically broken characters and hope and pray they can find true happiness in their lives again. 

This is an amazing story of the lengths of what one person will do to protect the people they love most in the world. My heart broke and it swooned. The absolute sacrifices this person suffered in some ways in silence about many things was astounding. To be loved by someone that much. What.a.dream. Now their life’s circumstances were by no means easy and talk about clawing, kicking and scratching your way back from the depths of despair. But I wouldn’t trade this journey for anything else. I was eye opening, unforgettable and I am forever going to be thinking about these wonderful characters. 

Get ready because Jewel E. Ann brings the tears, the drama, the laughter and every other emotion out there in this not to miss story.

✨Star Rating-  All the stars aligned for this perfect book and it deserves every one. ✨✨✨✨✨✨

🔥Flame factor- As always Jewel’s books are sweaty, sexy and oh so swoony!! Heck yes!  🔥🔥🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger warning- no cliffhanger. Tear jerker HEA of Perfection!! 🥰🥺🥰🥺

Opium Skies Release Blitz & Review



Title: Opium Skies
Series: In Vein #1
Author: C.M. Radcliff
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: October 29, 2020

BLURB
Life is full of variables.

We crave control, but in reality, we have very little.

I left home with a plan: get the full college experience and pass my classes.
But that all changed when I met him.
Ander was the last thing I needed.
He was never part of my plan.
He was the one variable in my life that I could never control.

And we were destined for destruction

My Review

I am NOT okay you guys! 😭

You know my friends, there will come a time you will read a book that will touch you so profoundly that it will leave you wandering aimlessly for days afterwards in a perpetual state of shock, worry, and frustration. You will go through tears, sadness, still thinking about the book, going back and reading parts again. You will be anticipating the next book and at the same time overcome with so much emotion from the first book. 

THIS was my emotional state after reading Opium Skies. I was not only riding the hot mess express, I’m the freaking train conductor of that bitch. I am so blown away and in awe of C.M.Radcliff  and at the brilliance that she displayed in this book. If you haven’t read her yet…STOP EVERYTHING NOW!! And start devouring her books, because you my book lovin buddies, have been missing out. 

Ander and Hadley’s story hurts, y’all. I’m not gonna lie.  It’s so rivetingly raw and serves you up the harsh truths of love in a world of addiction. What it’s like to be head over heels in love with a liar, with a promise breaker, with someone who will hurt you, because they ultimately love the high more than they love themselves. 

This book is gut-wrenching in its realness, it cuts to the core, because it’s so authentic. I felt like I had a front row seat to the events as they unfolded. Because this author’s attention to detail was top notch. I could close my eyes and picture every single detail. Sights, sounds and smells. No detail too small, just enough to paint the perfect picture in my mind. I mentally was on this journey with them. From the witty banter fun filled moments, to the sexy and steamy moments. 

To the moments that left me crying my eyes out a blubbering mess (and totally getting WTF looks from my family) my friends, be ready to hurt for these characters that I fell so quickly in love with. You will too!  Characters that are by no means perfect, but imperfectly perfect phenomenally written characters. They had unbelievable chemistry from the get go which made their obstacles that much more heartbreaking. I can’t wait for the next book because I am literally left on the edge of my seat grasping at any hint of what’s to come of these characters.

I want them to have the future not only I desire for them but that I think they deserve. I’m holding out hope for a HEA,  but I also know that it seems like at this point my loves, Hadley and Ander are going to have to go through the nine circles of hell and back  to get to that HEA. That is even if they even have a shot… And right now, they have just passed that first circle of hell. Love isn’t the issue. One is on a fast path of destruction…Question is will they take the other down with them?

My cr8zysockbookblock blog wrap up for this book!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐⭐️-I am SO in LOVE with this book Y’ALL! I could literally go on for days, actually for weeks about this book because it is still on my mind, heart and soul. Get ready y’all because it WILL take you on a crash course of feelings. complete with loop-de-loops and backwards crawls!  But I happen to believe there is nothing that feels like the release you get from a good release of the build up of tears that can only come with an epic book hangover kind of therapeutic cry! 

🔥🔥🔥🔥- SO FREAKING HOT!! Pearl Clutchers Beware!! LOL 

If you can’t take the heat get out tha kitchen! They are absolutely smokin!

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- You do NOT get a resolution for this couple in this book! 

🔫🔫Trigger Warning- This book contains subject matter that could be a trigger for some folks. I’m not going to give specific spoilers. I will just say both of these two have been through some stuff and it’s not always easy to read about it, but how the characters come out in the end was so important to their journey. If you have any specific questions please feel free to PM me.

EXCERPT

My eyes fly open and I glance at the door, meeting his stormy blue eyes. 
“What the fuck are you doing, Hadley?” Ander barks as his entire body consumes the doorway. Everyone in the room freezes, glancing between the two of us. 
Narrowing my eyes, I hold his gaze, challenging him as I slide the rolled-up bill across the surface of the dresser, deeply inhaling the bright white powder. My eyes never leave Ander’s as I drop the bill onto the dresser and stand upright, sniffing harder. Ander steps into the room, his entire presence consumes every inch of the space. The two guys in the room instinctively step back, knowing better than to get in his way right now. 
Ander’s eyes are honed in on mine and they burn with the deepest shades of blue. A complete contradiction to the storm that brews within his expression. He stops in front of me, reaching out and grabs my chin. Tilting my head to look back at him, he leans in, his lips just barely touching mine. 
“You wanna play like that, little girl?” He breathes against my lips as a sinister smile pulls on the corners of his lips. “Game on.” 
Quickly releasing me, Ander nudges me to the side and plucks the rolled-up bill from the wood surface. Crossing my arms over my chest, I watch him, slightly amused as he leans over the dresser. Within a matter of seconds, he inhales the remaining lines left and stands back to look at me. 
His pupils are already constricted, but I watch as they transform into just small dots, with his blue irises consuming them. Ander looks down at me with a sly grin playing on his lips, waiting for me to make the next move. 
Abruptly grabbing me by the throat, he pulls me flush against him. My breath catches in my throat. His touch burns against my skin and the blazing fire settles throughout my body, mixing with the euphoria from the Oxy and everything else in my system. 
Heat spreads from my stomach and a warmth creeps between my legs as he leans closer, his warm breath skating across my face. Just as his lips are about to capture mine, he ducks his head to the side, pressing his lips against my ear. 
“Ball’s in your court, babe,” he breathes, his words only meant for me to hear and lightly squeezes my throat. “Your move.”

My Review

I was so excited, counting the moments until this book hit my kindle because I knew it was going to be amazing. But oh my god my friends, I could never, NEVER  have mentally prepared myself for the emotional beating my heart would endure with this book. Siobhan Davis shattered me, broke me, tore me apart in every single way before she put me back together again in what will absolutely be one of my top reads of 2020. Kent and Presley’s journey is so devastating and gritty and heartbreakingly raw. But it’s beautifully heartfelt and healing and the most poignant and perfect example of overcoming insurmountable obstacles and adversity and growing not only as individuals but as a new couple in love. At its core it’s about being broken, shattered in the worst possible ways, and happening upon your one perfect person who has the capabilities to put your broken pieces back together again. My friends, Reforming Kent was a remarkable story that will remain in my heart long after the last page was read. I will think about this story for days if not weeks to come. Because it is one of those kinds of tales that burrow into your hearts and soul and will remain there. 

Kent is the perfectly damaged and broken book boyfriend. He’s young,  hot, reckless and has no conscience about his behaviors, or so it seems. He’s just so unapologetically angry at the world and is out to punish everyone, even those who can’t understand why. My heart just bled for this miserable misunderstood bad boy.

I’m so grateful that Siobhan chose to do Kent’s story last, because I think as we read each brother’s story leading up to this book we got to see glimpses of the paths of destruction he left in his wake. For years he suffered, but definitely never in silence. He was a tsunami of anger and resentment at the world, ready to unleash his fury onto anyone at any given time and we needed to see that build up of madness to really appreciate just how much of a transformation we see in his character. It was truly extraordinary. 

Presley is gorgeous and sassy and at first wants NOTHING to do with playboy Kent. But Kent can’t help to be drawn to the fiery bartender and wants nothing more than to own her body, but who knew she would end up owning his heart. This beautifully broken girl, this phoenix who has risen from the ashes of her grief and put herself back together again after tragedies from her past is everything he never knew he needed and all that he wants most in the world. She is strong, she is courageous, she is everything and more. She is the picture of perseverance and the perfect heroine for our Kent. But can our Presley save Kent when it seems like he doesn’t want to be saved? Or will he destroy her in the process?

Southern Storms Blog Tour & Review

Even the town’s black sheep needed a friend sometimes

Southern Storms, an all-new, small town second chance romance from Brittainy C. Cherry, is available now!

SouthernStorms AMAZON

All I wanted to do was run away, I never expected to crash into his arms…

After leaving the city life behind to escape my loveless marriage, I moved to small town Havenbarrow for a fresh start.

What I didn’t expect was to find myself drawn to the town’s black sheep.

They called him troubled. Cold. A man with a dark past.

What everyone seemed to miss about Jax was the splashes of light in his eyes. The random acts of kindness he performed when no one was watching. The way he made me smile and laugh.

Jax helped unpack the baggage I’d been carrying around with me. He was patient with my pain and gentle with my scars. He was the stillness during my hurricane.

Yet when both of our pasts come back to haunt our present days, we realized quickly that sometimes love stories didn’t end the way we’d hoped.

Sometimes you were left with only the damage from the storm.

My Review

Holy Wow! Brittainy C. Cherry does it again! She put my heart through the wringer with Jax and Kennedy’s story y’all! This story of two devastatingly broken people that in each other find each find love, healing and new beginnings. 

Kennedy is a  beautiful person inside and out, but she is emotionally damaged. Emotionally decimated by an unimaginable tragic event then the person she needed the most turned their back on her, hurt her and tossed her aside like garbage. Needing to begin to heal the emotional trauma and find herself again, she heads to Havenbarrow, Kentucky to stay in one of her sister Yoana’s houses. While exploring she meets the town’s black sheep. Who also happens to be the hot, broody and rude owner of the property she wanders onto while out on a walk in the woods. As grumpy and short with her as Jax is, Kennedy can’t help but to be drawn to him and the familiar look in his eyes, he just had this way about him to calm her when she was panicking. 

“Even behind the rain clouds, the sun is always there.”

Ignoring the warnings by the nosy nellies of this small town, Kennedy catches herself noticing Jax is more than the reputation that follows him around town. She’s intrigued and wonders if maybe Jax is just what she needs and vice versa. I loved her character. I was devastated for her and rooting for her and Jax to heal each other. Man, how I cried over and over during this book, because I loved Jax and Kennedy and what they had endured was just so gut wrenching. 

Jax was the tragically damaged bad boy. Forever emotionally unavailable, but secretly had a heart of gold. I loved this complexity of his character. There were so many layers to what made this amazing man. The circumstances behind what made him the way he was, oh my heart y’all! This poor man suffered in silence and guilt for fifteen years.

Even though he was angry at first glance when he caught Kennedy there was something familiar about her he couldn’t quite put his finger on. I loved how they rediscovered all the old feelings. 

“You were my sun,” he said. “After your letters stopped, the world became that much darker.”

His friendship with Connor was hilarious and helped to break up some of the seriousness and sadness in the book. I floved Connor. Actually I loved all the secondary characters. Crazy Joy and even the nosy town ladies. It was indicative of small town life and added a great element to Kennedy’s frame of mind and showcased the ups and downs she went through in her steps towards healing. 

This book is most definitely an emotional journey. Both of our mains are flawed and heartbroken and have been through hades and back. But I believe it’s their imperfections that make them perfect for each other. 

Don’t miss this highly emotional friends to lovers/second chance romance.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️- This emotionally gripping and riveting book was so much more that I could have imagined it to be. I cried a lot😭, I laughed a lot too🤣(Connor and Crazy Joy, you guys da bomb yo😘) 

I rooted for these two. This was a journey. The characters we got in the beginning were not the characters that left us, I love when that happens. So Good Guys! ♥️

🔥🔥🔥🔥-sweet and hot and absolute perfection !! 

🌪Cliffhanger Warning-🌪🌪No Cliffhanger! This was super emotional, I cried so many times because I loved these characters and felt right along with them, but I couldn’t be happier with the way this ended for them! Here’s hoping we getConnor’s story! 🤞🏻 #PerfectEnding!😍

Excerpt Kennedy Joy Jones was quite the character to take in. That morning, when the sun came up, she walked outside to her front porch and sat down in her rocking chair with a smile on her face and a large cup of coffee. A few of my nosy visitors told me that it was a daily routine for her. Her silver-dripped hair was tossed up in a messy bun being held together with two knitting needles, and her thick-framed, vibrant-orange glasses sat on top of her head. She wore a vibrant bow in her hair that matched her dress for the day, and she always greeted everyone who passed by her house, even when they didn’t speak back to her. Everyone in town called her Crazy Joy, even though she was the kindest person. Her only odd quirk was that she never left her property. I wondered how she managed, though. I wondered how she kept living without stepping foot outside of her home. It seemed she hadn’t any children and she didn’t have a caregiver who came to aid her, from what I could tell. Later that morning, my questions were answered as a blue pick-up truck pulled in front of the house. Needless to say, my jaw dropped to the ground when I saw Mr. Personality step out of the vehicle. He walked his way straight toward Joy’s front porch with his arms filled with grocery bags. He proceeded to greet Joy. She stood from the rocking chair as he set the bags down on the porch. Then, he hugged her. He hugged her! I wouldn’t have thought someone as grumpy as Mr. Personality had the ability to hug someone. The two of them walked inside to put the groceries away, leaving me completely baffled and unable to return to my scheduled reading. It took a lot to break me away from a book. And by ‘a lot,’ I meant a lot. My house could’ve been on fire, aliens could’ve beamed me up, and I would’ve still been trying to get in that one last page. When my own love story was broken, I turned to story books to heal the cracks of my broken heartbeats. When my world fell apart, the story books still believed in happily ever afters. Those books saved me on the days I felt my soul falling victim to the hardest of storms. Yet, Mr. Personality pulled me away from the words against the page. He made me curious about him walking into Joy’s house. Watching him chat away with her had my mind racing. A few minutes later, when the two of them walked back outside with two glasses in their hands—one with wine, the other with some dark liquor—whiskey, I assumed—I couldn’t stop myself from glancing over to them. Joy kept talking, and Mr. Personality kept responding. Even though I couldn’t hear what they were saying, Joy looked beyond smitten with whatever was being said her way, which forced my own heart to skip a few beats. Well, I’ll be damned. The town’s asshole made me swoon.
