Excerpt

“And just where do you think you’re going?” a deep voice slurred from somewhere near the door. I didn’t need to look up to know who it was.

“I’m going home, Silas,” I said, fighting back the tears that were threatening to run down my face as I tried to fit too many textbooks into my backpack.

“Like fuck you are,” he said, making his way toward me.

I stood to my full height and looked at him. My heart dropped at seeing him this way. “Silas, you’re drunk.” I could smell the marijuana coming off of him in waves. “And probably high. You should call it a night.”

I didn’t know why I was trying to give him advice. I should have told him to go fuck himself and be done with it.

“I’ll call it a night if you call it one with me,” he drawled, moving in closer to me.

“Get away from me, Silas,” I said, trying to feign confidence but he just laughed.

“You don’t want that, Sky. I saw the way you looked at me. The way you looked at her. You wanted that to be you, hm?”

I didn’t think his comment warranted a response. Either that or I was too choked up to say something back. I picked up my backpack and tried to lift it onto my shoulders, but even in his inebriated state he was quick. The bag tumbled to the floor as he pushed it away and I felt my back press into the wall behind me.

“Admit it, Sky. You. Want. Me.” He was so close to me now. His lips were ghosting against my neck and his hand was pressing against my hip. 

I hated this.

I hated him.

I hated the way he made me feel.

And I hated the way he smelled like someone else’s perfume.

“I can smell her on you,” I seethed at him through grit teeth. 

He pulled back, lifting his face so that his eyes were even with mine. His fingers moved up, making me shiver on their ascent before pinching my chin. I grimaced as I wondered whether it was the hand that had, minutes before, been knuckle deep in another woman’s cunt.

“You wish it were you, don’t you?” he drawled.

“No,” I bit back, but I was a fucking liar. Truth was, I wanted Silas. I wanted him bad. And I wanted him all to myself. I didn’t want to share him. Not with some bimbo. Not with anyone. I loved the way him and I had developed our study routine. I loved that out of everyone in his life, except for maybe his mother, I knew him the best.

He had hot edges and a frozen center, but at least I knew all the secrets he kept hidden there were for me and me alone. But I didn’t know how to say any of this. Worse than that, I didn’t know how to admit any of this. I hated and wanted him at the same time. He said I was a contradiction but that was only because he tore me in two.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

All-Time Favorite Read

Top Read of 2020

 

Oh my stars….WHAT A BOOK!!!! Hands down, this is my favorite read so far of 2020!!!!

“Xan and I will never change. I’ll always be his Green, and he’ll always be my knight.”

I love a book that can make me laugh, cry, and want to throw my Ipad across the room!!!! This one did all of that and more! The synopsis doesn’t even scratch the surface of how fantastic it is!!!

Kimberly aka Green to Xander is just waiting to get her senior year over with. She wants away from her mother and the bullies at school, especially Xander. He once was her best friend whom she adored. Now, he is her enemy and there is no adoration left for him. He made sure of that throughout the years as he stomped her heart into tiny little pieces. 

Xander worshiped the ground Green walked on and would have done anything for her. They were the best of friends, and they commiserated about the “stellar mothers” they had. Yes, I’m being sarcastic. There was not one motherly bone in either one of their bodies. He can’t ever let Kimberly in his heart, so he is cruel, doing whatever he can do push her away…even while breaking her heart even more. This was a huge twist. I thought I knew why he treated her so badly, but I didn’t even come close!!!! Rina Kent rocked my world with that one! 

As you can imagine, there is a lot of angst, but there has to be in Xan’s and Green’s story. I found the flashbacks of them as children so endearing. These two were meant to be together; they were soulmates from the very beginning. Life and uncaring people came between them. Xan is no longer her knight but her nightmare. I’m so glad Kent gave us both of their POVs because I would have a hard time finding any warmth for Xander. He could be so cruel to her. So, getting inside his head, helped me understand him so much better. 

Rina Kent warned her readers in the beginning that she writes darker romances, and they aren’t for the faint of heart. She was also very accurate in warning us that this book was different, and she really dug in deep emotionally. She dealt with issues of bullying, cutting, an eating disorder, depression, and addiction issues. She broke my heart before putting it back together again. There is one scene in particular with Kimberly that tears were pouring out of my eyes. I wanted to be there holding her and reassuring her that I “saw her.” As heavy as the book could be, it is amazing to me that Kent makes something so incredibly beautiful from it too!!!! That takes real talent, and Rina Kent has tons of that!!!!

I literally stayed up all night long to finish this book, not going to bed until 4:30 AM. It was worth every single minute of sleep I lost! If you want a book to keep your attention and leave you completely at a loss of words and your heart beating wildly, this is the PERFECT READ for you!!!!

New Review: Like You Care: A Dark High School Bully Romance (Devilbend Dynasty Book 1) by Kaydence Snow

🔥🔥 NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

Like You Care by Kaydence Snow is LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

“Gripping is an understatement when it comes to this book. From start to finish this book is an emotional roller coaster that keeps you captivated. I ugly cried, I raged, I cheered so freaking hard for both Mena and Turner it’s not even funny.” ~Red Hatter Book Blog

I am nothing.

Nobody.

I’d rather be invisible than deal with what happens on the days my classmates decide to acknowledge my existence.

But then Turner Hall shows up – all cool confidence and witty banter – and all of a sudden I don’t want to be invisible any more. I want to be seen.

I want him to see me.

I’m not who he thinks I am but I’m starting to suspect he’s not all he says he is either.

Just my luck that he starts to make friends with my tormentors. How am I supposed to tell him who I really am? How am I supposed to show him my true face? What if the boy I’m falling in love with decides I’m nothing too?




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Forgive the pun, but this romance packs quite the punch! I finished it in one sitting! Kaydence Snow took my heart and my mind captive!!!!

I have recently begun reading some of the dark/ bully romances, but this one is different from the others I have read. Mena is the victim of bullying that has been ongoing for years. However, her love interest, Turner, is not one of her tormentors. 

Mena was born with a birthmark, and her fellow students just use that as one excuse to torment her. First it began with her being invisible, but it progressed into something more dangerous and sinister. At times, it was so hard to read about Mena’s experiences. I was on the verge of tears; I raged at those who mistreated her so badly! My heart broke for her. However, she did have such a great network of support as well, her cousins, her parents, and her small circle of friends! 

I enjoyed the mystery surrounding the mystery of Turner as well. It added an element of intrigue of mystery and suspense to an already good book! As Mena has secrets, so does Turner, and his secrets connect everything happening within the plot. 

In addition to great characters, I also loved the storyline. Snow really knows how to use emotions to connect her readers to the story and the characters. The beginning of the romance between Mena and Turner was cloaked in intrigue as well! The slow burn romance between them was a winner too!!! 

I have to say that Snow’s choice of a title was a stroke of genius….the meaning of those words can have different connotations. “Like You Care” could mean acting like you have genuine feelings for someone and could also be used in the sarcastic, mean way of saying, “Oh, like you  care!” She did a great job of incorporating both of those meanings seamlessly within the plotline. I just love when everything connects within a book…from the title to the ending!!!!

Kaydence Snow is a new writer to me, and I’m so glad I discovered her. I cannot wait to read more from her in the immediate future…LIKE NOW!!!!
