Ember by Kandi Steiner

Ember gives us the short story of a chief stew on a charter yacht in the Mediterranean. She has worked her fanny off to get where she is at the lady in charge. While catering to the super rich and hot Ember finds herself at essentially a crossroads of sorts. She has been the one thus far to provide her charter guests will all the luxury and lavishness she can and now she is being offered a chance at being spoiled like that. But at the same time for a while Ember has been in a constant battle with the cook, Finn. Mr, hotter than anything coming out of his kitchen, Finn and Ember have been battling each other in some smexy tension filled banter for a while now and they just need to bang it out already. His whispers in her ear of the things he wants to do to her are hotter than anything he could possibly have cooking up on the stove. It is just the perfect short, but oh so explosive encounter!!   

  

Camilla~ Cali Melle 

Camilla is the short novella where we are introduced to Camilla Knight and Owen Hart. Camilla is a hard working single mom to a young, Hockey loving son, Logan Knight. ( who eventually grows up to be our Hero in Cross Checked Hearts. Wyncote Wolves #1) She has spent years working hard and building a successful business and now at twenty-nine is CEO of her own company. When a business meeting introduces her to Owen Hart, who is obviously attracted to her. She shares in that attraction but where Owen is upfront about it she is more uncomfortable and tries to put distance between them. Let’s just say his persistence pays off, and Camilla decides to give into what she really wants. I love how it literally goes from dinner to down and dirty so fast. YUMMY!! If you haven’t met the Wyncote Wolves  Hockey series by Cali Melle you absolutely NEED to ASAP.

Crew Taylor is the picture of perfection, if gruff, grumpy, and prone to throw a punch is your type. Clearly, it’s mine or I wouldn’t be begging him to bite the bullet and claim my virginity as his own. 

 

Sure, he’s a bit of a caveman, broody and bossy and oh so naughty, but that’s sort of the point. 

He’s experienced, his heated hazel eyes promising sinful skills in seduction, and I want him to teach me all he knows. 

 

Lesson by lesson. 

Night after night. 

 

The problem? 

 

He says he won’t allow me in his bed … but I wonder what it would take to get him to play in mine a bit?

OMG!😱 I freaking loved this story. 🥰 This is just the kind of story that is absolutely why I have one of the fastest one-click clicker fingers in the south. If Meagan Brandy writes I can almost guaran-damn-tee that It for sure is gonna be my jam. Crew and Davis just DID IT FOR ME! Off the charts explosive of course,  but this kept just throwing my feels in a whirlwind. I wasn’t expecting that. I’m so used to the arrogant alpha holes in MB’s books that the broken bad boy trying to overcome the past really put a hurtin’ on this gal’s ticker. He melted me, made me swoon, made me pant. Everything about him just worked for me.

Davis was as sweet as candy and I loved how she felt about Crew. She was quirky and funny. 💗 Beyond beautiful both inside and out but with this innocence and radiance ☀️that people are drawn to. She truly had no clue of the attention she captured from the men around her. Probably partly because as long as she could remember she could only see one and one only and that was, Crew Taylor. After he left three years ago with no contact she decided that she had a issue that needed taken care of and he was the one she needed to take care of it. She just needed to convince him to help her out. Armed with all the pros and cons, can she get this grumpy new Crew to give in to her reasoning?  

It was emotional, swoony, forbidden, hot, angsty, and unexpected. You can’t help but to fall in love with this couple. The banter, their history, the entire journey. Discovering all the twists and truth bombs, “kindle chuckin’ in a second of pure frustration” times, lip biting moments of angst. Plus a fantastic cast of secondary characters that I adore beyond measure. Here are just a few of the tasty morsels this genre smorgasbord will be bringing your way. 🍪🍭🍩🍬🍫

🔥Forbidden/ Childhood Foster brother

🖤Older Brother’s ex Best Friend

🍩Grumpy/Sunshine

🥵Possessive AF Hero 

🍬Virgin Heroine

The Love of My Next Life Release Blast & Review

 Release Date: September 8

I calmed his demons.
 

He created mine.


Macon Davis.

My best friend’s brother.


My tormentor.

My least favorite person.

Pothead. Delinquent.

A careless, directionless loser.


That’s what I used to believe,

but I didn’t really know him.

And when I finally saw him,

it was the best and worst thing to ever happen to me.


We burned hot and fast.

Passion. Anger. Love. Pain.

We were reckless. Naive.

We were doomed from the start.


When I finally saw Macon Davis for who he was,

We both went down in the flames.


***



The Love of My Next Life is part one of a duet.

It is just as much a love story as it is a tale of ruin.

While the duet will end with an HEA, book one does not.

Book two is set to release in October 2022.

I am absolutely destroyed at the moment. This book gutted me. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to get when I started. As this is A- my first read by this author so I’m unfamiliar with her style, which I am discovering is a tragedy in itself because OMG where has Author Brit Benson been in my life the last few years?! And B- because other than the blurb that TBH I read a while back when I signed up to read this, I went in blind not really knowing too much of what to expect. Which turned out to be the way to go anyway.

Blind is best y’all. My recommended way to go, always. Now, I had my assumptions based upon said blurb, but… You know what they say about assumptions and all!  Blurb had me thinking “ okay, this is going to be the whole “good girl falls for an anti-hero that’s going to grow on us.” and I can totally get on board with a good ‘ol enemies to lovers any day of the week and twice on Sunday’s. I mean it was an enemies to lovers, and this book does take place in high school, but these were anything but your typical high school sweethearts. This book was unlike ANYTHING I have ever read. Original storyline with phenomenally written, flawed characters gave us an engaging and gripping story. A  gritty and realness that is sure to leave you emotionally raw long after the cliffy at the end leaves you breathless. I know it did me. 

From the very beginning I fell for Macon hook, line, and sinker. He’s so tantalizingly toxic, and I should be ashamed that I’m so twisted because I die harder for the toxic ones. But I’m not even a little ashamed.  Yes, he was definitely cruel at times, he was messed up, he was for sure trouble with a capital T. But he was also misunderstood, he was damaged, he was broken, self destructive,  hurt, and he was so much more than what people saw him for. It wasn’t just the way people saw him, it was the way he saw himself.

He just made me feel everything. I wanted to simultaneously hit him upside his head to knock some sense into him and pull him to me and just hug him and heal all his hurts. He broke my heart, he melted my heart, he made me hot. Holy Hot Hell 🔥🌶🔥🌶 did he ever make me hot. The ones with  the bad egg rep y’all, I’m telling you. They just do it for me. What is wrong with me? In real life my hubby is as straight-laced as they come.  Lol That’s probably why I like my fictional fellas fully fubar’d! (Not completely. I do want him redeemable)  

Lennon is amazing. She’s got a heart of gold, she is who she is and she’s comfortable with herself. She is creative, a rule follower, and selfless friend. Honestly she gets the short end of the stick sometimes because with most of the people in her life she doesn’t stand up for herself…except with Macon. He seems to be the person in the world who can get her the most fired up. The way they verbally spar. He brings out this lively feisty spirited side to her that no one else sees. I can feel  how she finds herself struggling with her feelings for him, it practically jumps off the pages. She is at war with everything. The things he does, the way he treats her, the things others have to say about the kind of person he is. It all weighs heavily on her mind.

But things start to happen and she finds herself around him more and more and she sees glimpses that there is so much more to him. All of these discoveries are breaking down her walls. However the more walls they tear down, the more life seems to throw back up in their way. I just connected with her character so deeply. The writer did such an amazing job I was so invested and emotional I had to take moments and remind myself that I wasn’t actually there. I didn’t need to throw down with anyone in real life to stand up for some injustice that was being done to my girl. I mean I could chuck my kindle, and almost did several times. I could cry, which I absolutely did. A lot. I could cuss, did that as well. But at the end of that chapter I pressed on. Until press on I could no more…and now we wait.  

My angsty frustration level is at an all time high. The tension between them is palpable.  I live for the kind of rush this book was giving me. This book is a catastrophic collision of every emotion under the sun. Past trauma, damaged hearts, addiction, forbidden love, secrets, mistakes, lies and betrayal rips through their lives. Told in dual alternating POV, book one in the Next Live Duet will leave you grasping the edge of your seat, tears in your eyes, wanting to IM the author immediately to demand book two, before I die of impatience. Can one actually die of impatience? I feel like I just might. But in all actuality this book is fantastic. While it is full of sensitive content. It is beautifully written, the parallels to real life make it tragically devastating especially given where it has left us at this point. I am also filled with a smidge of hope. Deep in my core I believe in true love and I believe these two are inevitable soul mates. But I think they ( and us readers) will be put through a gut-wrenching journey, the likes of one which we won’t recover from immediately( because these characters have already captured our hearts.)   

My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up

⭐️Star Rating~⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨~Six, I will probably never emotionally recover from this duet if book one is anything to go by, STARS!!

💭Overall Thoughts~ I am so happy I took a chance on this book and this new to me author as it will most definitely go down as one of my TOP READS of 2022! My only regret is that I am just now discovering this author’s work. I plan to quickly devour as much of her back list ASAP. I will be counting down the days until book two. I’m probably not ready for what Ms. Benson is going to do to my poor heart. But I can’t survive without knowing where we are going from here. I highly recommend EVERYONE take a chance on this author and The Love Of My Next Life. As for me… I will never be the same. 

⚠️TRIGGERS~This book has some content that could be disturbing to some readers. Elements of child abuse, unaliving oneself, Death, addiction, mental illness. If you would like more specific information feel free to PM me for more specific details.    

🌶 HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶 Definitely Hot. Had tension and lots of great “Banter O’Hate.” The buildup was worth the wait. I can’t wait to see the spice level in book 2 since I imagine the them to be older in that book.  

🥰 HEA/CLIFFY🧗‍♀️~ HUGE CLIFFHANGER– This book is book ONE of TWO. You will not get a resolution to this couple’s story in this book. You will get a shocker and then an abrupt ending to keep you hanging! Thankfully book two is set to release in October 2022. Until then Happy Reading My Friends!

Mercy Release Blitz & Review

 Release Date: August 25


I don’t want to hurt him—I just want to punish him. 

It’s bad enough being the only female owner of the Salacious Players’ Club, but I’m also the only one without a kink, or so I thought. 

Imagine my surprise when the kink quiz suggests that I’m not so vanilla after all. 

In fact, I’m a lot more like Emerson Grant than I thought.

Just one problem—I have no idea how to be a Domme.

That is, until the app matches me with someone willing to help me learn. 

He’s too young for me.

Too stubborn. Too good looking. 

And, oh yeah, my friend’s son.

Beau Grant is a brat. I’d hate that about him if I didn’t love punishing him so much. 

Underneath all of that attitude is a man who is misunderstood, selfless, and in need of direction.

But if he wants mercy, he has to earn it. 

There are a million reasons why I should stay away, but I’m tired of doing what everyone thinks I should do.

I finally know what I want, and I’m ready to take what’s mine.

My Review

Y’ALL OMG!! 🙀 Where has Sara Cate been all my life and why in the diddly dang  am I just now reading her?!🤷🏼‍♀️  Obviously this is something I plan to rectify ASAP. Not to worry. I have every intention of knocking her entire backlog out because I am absolutely NOT okay with the lingering feeling of FOMO if I don’t devour her whole dadgum lucious list. I will get on this really soon… well as soon as I get through beating my own fanny 👋🏻 for ignoring my shameless draws to her covers that I have been ogling for a minute. I mean HAVE YOU SEEN 👀 HER GORGEOUS COVERS? I have always noticed her covers and thought to myself “ I need to check her out.”

Okay, I’m gonna stop my depression over the fact that I hadn’t before now and focus on what’s really important. That I have jumped on the Sara Cate boat NOW and I am NOT getting off…err,  Well actually that’s not entirely true. 😏 IYKYK 🫠

But really with this one book she has absolutely solidified her place as a one-click author for me. And everything about Mercy sums up exactly why that is!! 

Oh help me Rhonda!🧨 LAWD UH MERCY,🧨 ‘ cuse me while I pant for Beau Grant. 🥵 Maggie and Beau’s story is an amazingly delicious reverse age gap/ best friend’s son/ domme, super steamy romance. 🔥 A journey about self discovery, personal growth and becoming secure in your own wants and needs, and finding your perfect person to discover all those with. Both had things they too had overcome but were tired of being defined by their pasts. I don’t think either could have possibly imagined the strength  they would find in being around each other. 

This book is overwhelmingly hot. I am absolutely a sucker for a good reverse age gap but Author Sara Cate kicked this up a notch by making her discover that underneath the phenomenally successful boss babe she was lurking a sleek and smexy Domme just waiting to be let loose on a willing submissive… But what happens when that waiting and willing sub turns out to be Beau Grant? The devastatingly handsome twenty-two year old son of her best friend and business partner, Emerson Grant.  Not gonna give anything away. JUST READ THIS BOOK! 

My Cr8zysockbookblock Wrap Up

⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨⭐️✨~ FIVE UNFORGETTABLY FILTHY STARS!! While this book is book four in the Salacious Players Club, it can be read as a stand alone. Like I mentioned previously this was my first book by this author. It did touch on the other couples in the series but I feel like I am still going to go back and read the other books because I loved this author’s writing so much.  All of the four books in the series are in Kindle Unlimited so binge them, or at the very least…reverse age gaps fans go ahead and “ have MERCY”  </b> 

🌶HEAT~ 🌶🌶🌶🌶 Deliciously HOTT AND  Super Spicy. Elements of K!nk and bondage. D/s relationship.

🥰HEA/CLIFFY🧗‍♀️~ No Cliffy. HEA. Last book in a four book series that follows a different couple in each book. Each book is a standalone with a guaranteed  HEA. 🖤🔥🖤🔥

Salacious Players Club Series Books 1-3

Meet Sara Cate


<p class=”MsoNormal” style=”margin: 0in;
Let’s skip the boring About the Author bit where I tell you how I’m a USA Today bestselling author who lives in Arizona with her kids, husband, and dog and enjoys baking in my free time. Boring. 

 

Instead, I’d like you to know I strive to be a taboo and forbidden romance author who dares to tell stories with heart-wrenching plot and toe-curling heat.

 

My passion in life is to normalize a reading experience that pushes boundaries and empowers women to own their sexuality. Things that trigger my soapbox rants are discrediting the romance industry or belittling its readers by calling it “trash.” You’ve been warned. I could quite literally go on for days.  

 

I like to take risks and write from the heart. And I want nothing more than to be an author readers trust to deliver books that are steamy AF but with a strong storyline and well-rounded characters.

 

What is The Sara Cate Experience?

The Sara Cate Experience means being pulled into a story and escaping reality a little bit for romances that are as emotional as they are arousing. The feelings are strong and the steam is scorching. There is never one without the other because when sex and love come together, it’s fireworks.

Hey, Mr. Marshall Release Blitz & Review

Release Date: June 14

At eighteen, Poe Blyton’s life is in shambles and the reason is Alaric Marshall.

After her mom’s death, he appeared out of nowhere and became Poe’s controlling guardian. When she protested his tyranny, he had the audacity to send her away to an all-girls reform school. A school full of iron clad rules and regulations.
But at least she’s graduating soon.
Until Alaric himself arrives at the school as the new principal and takes that away from her as well.
That devil.
He’s really asking for it, isn’t he?
And Poe is going to give it to him.
It doesn’t matter that her sworn enemy has the prettiest dark eyes she’s ever seen. Or that he looks really, really good in his boring tweed jackets. So much so that she wants to rip them off his body and see what’s underneath.
Because scorching hot or not, her new principal or not, Poe is going to ruin Alaric’s life.

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

My Review

Holy Slow Burn Deliciousness y’all!! Hey, Mr. Marshall, book 4 in the St. Mary’s Prep series is here and it is unforgettable, unputdownable, and absolutely delectable. This enemies to lovers, guardian/ward, principal/student story may be slow burn but it sure sucks you in from the very first sentence until the last. It will have you hanging on every single word as you run the gamut of feels in this angsty and emotional tale. 

From the day Poe Blyton met her new guardian, Alaric Rule Marshall she has hated him. He is cruel and heartless. He sent her away from the boy she loved to St. Mary’s school after all. Now he has taken a position as the new principal and held up her graduation for the summer. She doesn’t understand why he hates her so much that he wants to make heer as miserable as possible but she is determined to find out. I love Poe’s sassiness and badassiness. Really I just love her overall vibe. She is so loving and caring with her friends. She is talented and generous. She guarded because of her past and once you start learning more about her you can’t help but want her to have everything amazing life has to offer. She deserves the best kind of book HEA there is. 

Alaric is so aloof and glacial at times. I just had to know what happened to make him this way. I really liked how the story unfolded and we got more and more of the history behind why he is the way he is and holy cow… my poor heart. 

Ms. Kent put me through so many stages of feelings with this book. I would be sad for Poe and Alaric’s characters, then giddy from their banter, then frustrated, then devastated, and then panting because it was so flipping hot. I felt all the feels. I could not put it down. I devoured every single word. This story has a dual POV. We get more chapters from Poe’s POV But I love that we get some chapters from Alaric’s too. I really like getting to be in their heads while they are struggling with developing feelings for one another and what to do or not do with those feelings. 

The banter in this book was all kinds of sinful and mesmerizing. Alaric may have been struggling to come to terms with how wrong his feelings for her were but when he lost control of his mouth… GOOD GAWD!! 😳 He’s dirty mouthed AF and I’m here for every single filthy word. When they finally did “throw down” it was hotter than late July down here in my neck of the woods. (Georgia aka. The Dirty Dirty South) 🔥🥵🔥

I am super excited because of the little nugget of a teaser the author gave us for the next book to come. I’m jonesing for it already. 

Second Chance Love Release Blitz & Review

 
 
 
 

Release Date: June 14

 
 

From Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson comes an enemies to lovers, grumpy single dad/nanny second chance standalone romance.

 

The one-night stand with my best friend’s little sister wasn’t my biggest mistake…

 

Pretending like I didn’t know her the next day was. 

 

I had no idea who she was when we met. When I showed her around town … or when I bent her over my desk. 

 

I didn’t know until her brother asked me to look out for her. 

 

I felt obligated to say yes.

 

Yes to torturing myself. 

Yes to pushing her away. 

Yes to breaking her heart. 

 

Years later, little miss ray of sunshine… was my new nanny. Her love was now hate. 

 

Being forced to be near her day and night had me feeling all kinds of frustrated. 

 

Because she thinks I’m a just another grumpy single dad. 

 

All the same reasons why we can’t be together still existed. 

Except this time…

 

I don’t care. 

 

She’s mine.

My Review

Second Chance Love is an amazingly steamy, second chance story of inevitable love. It’s everything sinful and delicious about a forbidden, brothers best-friends, enemies to lovers, grumpy/sunshine romance. Caleb and Evie’s story has it all. A sweet yet sassy and sexy heroine, adorable kiddos, and the frustratingly gorgeous hero. Who makes you want to pull your hair out one minute and then pull your clothes off the next!

This book is full of so much yummy tension and steamy goodness you will Lose.Your.Mind!! I promise there are many more things happening that will keep you engaged and plowing right on through this book because you just got to know what happens. I read it in less than a day. I’m leaving out many more details as I wouldn’t dare spoil it because it’s too good and I recommend this book for everyone because it hits on so many great tropes.

Evie has loved Caleb since she was nineteen years old. Four years later He broke her heart tainting what should have been a special night for her. He made the night unforgettable all right. Years later Caleb wants to repair the damage he did and claim what he has always known is his. The one that got away. But will Evie forgive Caleb for destroying her heart? Business may have brought them together but will she truly be able to resist the man who has always owned her heart? Things are definitely complicated because it’s more than just Evie and Caleb that are impacted if a relationship were to happen between the two of them. 

Caleb has always had deep feelings for Evie but he has never really voiced that to her. He prioritizes protecting her brother, his best friend Jax, from finding out about her, leaving her constantly feeling like a dirty little secret. After he makes a life changing mistake he hurts Evie in an unbearable and unforgivable way. When he shows back up years later he is determined to get his girl back and will do whatever he needs to do, go to whatever lengths, or use whatever he has in his arsenal to break down her walls.

This book was number four in the Second Chance series. It is a standalone and offers dual POV. (My Favorite) I am really enjoying this series and cannot wait for the next book in this series. I love Author M. Robinson’s writing style. This story had the perfect blend of serious moments, funny moments, frustration filled moments, super steamy moments and heart melting moments. I couldn’t get enough of their banter. It’s the kind my dreams are made of.

Grab this amazing story today my friends!!

BLURB

The first boy I ever hated was Jax Bridges.

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.

Now, his best friend and I are business partners.

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 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫

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

Another tragedy, that’s what.

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

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

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

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

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

And at the center of that love story,

There is June.

My Review 

img_6856

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

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