Kiss to Conquer (Blairwood University #1)

by Anna B. Doe

About the Book:

 

The past tore them apart.

After a terrible accident took everything from Callie Stewart, enrolling at Blairwood University is supposed to be a chance at a new beginning.

Living his best life, Hayden Watson, star wide receiver for the Blairwood Ravens, is heading straight for the NFL draft and nothing is going to stand in his way.

The present brings them together.

Their paths were never supposed to cross, but when they do, all those old demons and feelings come rushing back. Hayden thinks he knows all about Callie’s life before Blairwood and he’s not ready to let go of the past, much less forgive her for what she has done three years ago.

One thing’s for sure… it’s going to take more than a kiss to conquer their broken past.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Anna B. Doe has crafted a beautiful, emotional read with Kiss to Conquer. I was mesmerized from the very first pages! 

Callie and Hayden knew each other back in high school, but the past tore them apart before they really ever had a chance to begin anything. It ended with Callie having major regrets and Hayden hating the girl who once held his heart. 

Fast forward years later, and these two will meet again. As you can imagine, it isn’t something either expected or even want. When old feelings emerge, things get even more complicated. 

Callie has come to Blairwood University hoping to begin her life again after she was involved in a devastating accident that took everything she held dear away. She is nothing like the girl Hayden knew, not by a long shot. Loss changed her in ways he could never imagine. To be fair to him, she wasn’t the most likeable person in high school as I saw in the flashbacks to their teen years. She was pretty self-centered, selfish, and cared about the trivial things in life…popularity. I like her much better now. 

Hayden has changed as well. It was almost like they switched personalities in a sense. He is now the most popular person on campus, and she shuns all attention. Although, Hayden wasn’t as self-centered as Callie was. Much of Hayden’s attitude is because of his painful past. I could definitely understand his dislike for Callie. Because of his good heart, he is able to forgive her for her past mistakes. 

Callie doesn’t believe she deserves a good life. She can’t seem to forgive herself for her past. With Hayden back in her life, she thinks happiness might just be a possibility. 

“But over time I accepted my destiny. Accepted the life I was forced to live without people I loved the most in it. But  I never started to dream again. Until now. Hayden…he makes me want to dream again. He makes me want to have a different future. Believe I can actually deserve it.”

Both Callie and Hendrix deserve all the happiness in the world, but it will NOT be easy. It seems life just keeps throwing them curveballs. They will have to fight for their HEA, and it will take both of them to do it!!! 

This is such a beautiful, emotional romance with some twists. Through this couple, Doe showed her readers that the past doesn’t have to define you.  I couldn’t help falling in love with Hendrix and Callie!!!!

New Review: Like You Hurt (Devilbend Dynasty #2) by Kaydence Snow

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Like You Hurt by Kaydence Snow is LIVE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Complex, angst-filled, unique, and HOT chemistry! Are you ready for Donna’s story?!

Donna

What kind of idiot gets on my bad side on his first day at my school? Hendrix Hawthorn is arrogant, cocky, infuriatingly attractive and clearly doesn’t realise I can make his life hell.

Which is exactly what I intend to do… until he shows up in the one place no one knows I go to – the one place that makes me feel alive. Now my reputation is in his hands, but I’ll be damned if I go down without a fight.

Hendrix

What kind of spoiled brat thinks I’ll just fall at her feet like the rest of these jerks? Donna Mead is a stone-cold bitch and I don’t want anything to do with her or her friends.

It’s bad enough I have to finish senior year at Fulton Academy – exactly the kind of place where I made the single biggest mistake of my life. I just want to keep my head down, get decent grades… until she shows up where she doesn’t belong. Now I can’t seem to stop myself from trying to prevent Donna from ruining her life like I did.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Like You Hurt is another winner from Kaydence Snow! 

I was really looking forward to reading Donna’s story, and it exceeded all my expectations!!! Donna is a very complex personality…Snow gave her multiple layers that she peeled back with each chapter. In the first book, Like You Care, Donna appeared to be in control and nothing seemed to bother her. Boy, was I in for a shock. Donna does like being in control, and people depend on her, yet she doesn’t have anyone to hold her up when she needs someone to lean on…that is until Hendrix shows up. 

Like Donna, Hendrix was quite the complex character too. He appears to be something he isn’t. Donna finds him arrogant and cocky, especially when he tells her he wants nothing to do with her or her little clique. However, there is so much people don’t know about him. He is carrying a huge burden of guilt with him, and he just wants to get through his senior year and move on. Too bad, Donna has gotten under his skin. He can’t seem to get the girl he should stay away from out of his mind. 

Like in the first book, Snow chose the perfect title. Hendrix and Donna are people who hurt, but for very different reasons. They seem to bring out both the worst and the best in each other. It just depends on what day of the week it is. There is a tremendous amount of push and pull with these two, but there has to be for the romance to be realistic for this couple. They are both extremely strong and independent characters. Yet, there are vulnerable sides to each other who find it hard to trust others with their emotions. 

Not only was this a steamy romance. The chemistry between them was HOT!!! As with the first book, there is some suspense as well that made the book even more difficult to put down.

This series just keeps getting better. Snow does a great job of drawing her readers in with her unique storylines and characters. Looking forward to more!!!!

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Oh my gosh!!!! This is an AMAZING read!!!! It is in my top 10 of 2020!!! This is a book you need to read NOW!!!

This book has it all…romance, angst, steam, and mystery. All these elements come together seamlessly to make a book that you will not be able to put down. I was intrigued when I read the synopsis, but it doesn’t even scratch the surface of what occurs between the pages. 

Breeze, Violet, and Chase have been friends since childhood. Breeze grew up with loving parents. Twins, Violet and Chase, spent so much time at Breeze’s home because their parents are never around. Breeze lives in a charming but small home. Violet and Chase live in a mansion. Violet and Chase are always the center of attention, and Breeze tries to blend into the background. They shouldn’t even run in the same social circles, but their friendship works. 

Life is normal until it isn’t. In fact, their lives will never be the same again with news of Violet’s murder. Breeze and Chase make a promise to one another to find her killer. Chase wants to start with Kai, Violet’s boyfriend. They were definitely not the perfect couple. What Breeze didn’t expect was the complicated feelings she has for both Chase and Kai. 

Coralee June and Carrie Gray did a tremendous job on this book. It isn’t just a forbidden romance, but it’s about grief and survivor’s guilt. They take us through all the emotions that entails…from how we can make the person we lost a saint and then the feelings we have when we realize they weren’t…they were just human beings…not perfect but flawed.

I spent most of the night reading this…looking up and realizing how late it really was. But, it was worth every minute of sleep I lost!!!! I cannot wait until the next book!!!!

I have always loved to read. In kindergarten, I was the weird kid sitting in the reading nook by myself instead of trying to get more snacks. I’m excited to be putting my own voice on the page and watching a story I helped create come to life. I still love to read, but I also really like snacks.

I grew up in Chicago but recently moved back to the Dallas area where I live with my husband and son.

I have my Bachelor of Science in Biology. I spent a year researching chimpanzees and gorillas while I was in Chicago and then I spent another two months on a chimpanzee sanctuary trying to convince headstrong chimps to cooperate. Pro tip – grapes are a pretty hot bargaining tool. They work wonders with my toddler too.
