5 STARS

A Top Read of 2020

All-Time Favorite Read

Oh my gosh!!!! This is the best book of the series so far!!!! 

So, Ronan seems like he has it all. That is what I thought as I read the earlier books in the series. He is loved by all and loves to be surrounded by others! Boy, Rina Kent sure had me fooled. Never did I even dream what was going on behind that sexy and happy facade he presented to others. With his arranged marriage to Teal, all that pretense starts to fall away. As the title suggests, he can be a “vicious prince.” Teal seems to bring that out in him when she refuses to go back on the marriage contract! What begins as a sensuous and emotional game of cat and mouse becomes so much more!! I wasn’t sure who would be the winner…Ronan or Teal. 

Kent really threw me for a loop with this one. My heart broke…I cried. I was angry. Not only were my emotions raw, but she somehow weaved in a mystery I wasn’t expecting! Ahhh…it was so good! I have loved all her characters, and it’s because of their flaws that they are so dear to me. Ronan and Teal are my favorite so far. They are so complicated and complex. 

From the beginning, Teal makes it well-known that she has ulterior motives for agreeing to marry Ronan. They are from two completely different worlds. He was born into wealth and privilege. She was lucky to be rescued and brought into that world yet she never can forget her traumatic origins. She never cared about fitting in.

“When girls did everything to fit in, she just followed what she liked. She never once laughed or smiled because it was expected.”

“If Marquis de Sade and Snow White had an offspring, it’d be her.” 

To say Teal has suffered would be the understatement of the decade. She has learned to just go through the motions of life without having any emotions. This is where the magic that is Ronan comes in. He is the lightness to her darkness. He makes her feel things which is both good and bad for her. He could be the prince she never saw coming. 

While Ronan thinks he and Teal have nothing in common, he comes to realize they actually have more in common than he ever imagined. They just deal with their traumas in completely different ways. Teal has tried to be invisible and Ronan has surrounded himself with others. 

“It’s a commitment I made to myself when I decided to never be alone. Not for one second. Not even for a blink.”

This is one of those books I devour, but I have to stop and let it seep into my soul before I can ever sit down and write a review. The chemistry between them was electric, but it was all their own…just like their road to love was! It was the right one for Teal and Ronan. Rina Kent continues to amaze me. She can take something so dark and make it into something so beautiful. I think Teal not only accurately describes who Ronan is, but she accurately describes Rina’s Kent’s writing:

“You’re the light despite the darkness. You’re the hope despite the black dots. You’re strong despite the weakness.” 

Kent gives her readers light in the darkness, she gives hope despite the circumstances, and she gives her characters’ strengths in spite of weakness. This is why she has become one of my favorite writers in such a short span of time!!!!

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: The Beast of Boston by JL Mac

Title: The Beast of Boston
Author: JL Mac
Genre: Mob Romance (Dark)
Release Date: May 19, 2020
Cover Design: Robin Harper, Wicked by Design

“This is Beast. Beast is the size of a Volkswagen and has an impossible amount of buds and blooms. Beast also has thorns. But if you can sneak close enough to catch a whiff, and avoid the gnarly thorns, you’ll be ruined for all the other roses for the rest of your life. The sweetest, most addictive scent amongst the thorns.” 
 
That’s what mom told my little sister and I once. She led us close enough to look but no further as she spoke of her favorite rosebush that she had affectionately named Beast.
 
That was a long time ago. 
 
These days I know another Beast. A different kind of wild, untamed thing. He too is dangerous to get too close to. It’s unfortunate that I can’t afford to care, not when he’s the key to finding my sister. 
 
They called him The Beast of Boston when he was a professional boxer. Now he rules over a bunch of criminals—the same criminals I hope will lead to my sister. I won’t stop until she’s found. I’ll get as close to Beast as it takes, gnarly thorns and all. 
 
The problem is I’m so busy worrying for my own physical safety that I never considered how my heart would behave. Mom was right about one thing: I am ruined for all the roses for the rest of my life and it’s much too late to change it now. 
 
***



Christie’s Review

5 STARS

A Top Read of 2020

OMG!!! LOVED this book! It is one of my top 10 reads of 2020. JL Mac completely pulled me into The Beast’s dark underworld. I was mesmerized!!!!

 

As you might imagine, there are elements of the fairytale, Beauty and the Beast, but this is nothing like the Disney movie. The beast in this version is much scarier. He is ruthless and intimidating. Beauty isn’t the shy little bookworm either. She is strong and can be pretty intimidating herself and has a taste for vengeance. 

 

Ena’s sister, Lan, has gone missing. She has every intention of bringing her home no matter the personal cost to herself. That is how she finds herself lying to her mother and applying for a job as an exotic dancer at the club, Eden, which is run by The Beast of Boston. He is second in command to Orin McCrae, one of the most notorious crime bosses in the country. She is sure there is a connection.

 

Can I just say that Ena is my hero? This woman is incredible. At her first meeting with him, she is mentally shaking in her boots. However, she never gives anything away. She learned to do this the hard way. Her childhood was tragic until she became part of a wonderful family who showed her what love was, yet she couldn’t completely shed all that trauma she experienced. That comes in handy when dealing with Beast. She has prepared for every instance except the attraction she has for him. As time passes, she will have to face the battle between her mind and her heart because they are telling her two very different things. 

 

Oh, Beast, who knew a monster could so sexy and appealing? 

 

“How funny that this monster–this Beast of Boston–is also gargantuan and happens to sport one lifelike red rose of his one. He too has thorns, just not the type you can see. His are hidden, and they’re that much more dangerous for it. He’s a pretty monster. That’s not quite accurate though. He’s not pretty. He’s beautiful.”

 

He is such a complex and tormented human. Mac did such a magnificent job of peeling back his layers. She does this through the chapters that are told from his point of view. I saw the ruthlessness and the need to punish those that wronged him. However, I also saw glimpses of tenderness and loyalty. He had very few people he was really close to and trusted, but if you were lucky enough to have him in your corner, you had nothing to fear from him, except his overprotectiveness. That was kind of endearing!

 

The chemistry between these two both inside and outside of the bedroom was INTENSE!!!! Both were so stubborn and neither would give in easily. Two people were never better matched!!

 

The romance and suspense were blended together flawlessly. I’m not sure what kept me flying through the pages more…would these two finally give into their desire, or what other twist and secret did Mac have in store for me. 

 

I cannot leave this review without expressing how much I LOVE Mac’s writing. Yes, this is a dark read, but her writing is beautiful, I would almost say magical. It really connected me on an emotional level. 

 

“Ignoring her disappearance, not bringing up her existence? Are we both too cowardice to stir the sediment of the shipwreck, knowing the murk would blind both of us from finding our way back to the surface?”

 

In this passage, it clearly illustrates the devastating pain Ena and her mother feel about Lan’s disappearance. It was just beautiful!!!! I also loved Mac’s story of how she came up with the idea of this book. It began with a rosebush, and she turned it into such a beautiful and emotional read!!!!





USA Today Best Selling Author, JL Mac, is the author of the bestselling Wrecked series, and several other romance titles. JL resides in El Paso, Texas, with her husband and four children. She is a native Texan having been born and raised in Galveston. JL admittedly has had a long and sordid love affair with the written word and has loved every minute of it. She drinks too many glasses of wine on occasion, and says way too many swear words to be considered “lady-like.” JL spends her free time reading, writing, playing with her children and living her happily ever after with her very own Prince Charming who she affectionately calls Tight Buns McHotness.

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!!!!

But, it’s like a moth to the flame.

I can’t stay away—even though I’m going to get burned.

You know what they say,

The sinners are much more fun.

And this saint is changing the game.

KNOX

Sweet.

Innocent.

Valedictorian.

Delaney Callahan is perfect,

Too perfect for me.

Hell, she’s too perfect for anyone.

She’s an angel,

But with me, she’s playing with the devil.

I’m the last thing a woman like her needs.

And yet, I can’t keep my hands—and mouth off of her.

We’re from two different worlds,

Worlds that can’t possibly work.

I’d do anything for her,

But I can’t be the SAINT she deserves.

OH MY GOODNESS…I have fallen in LOVE with this series. I was hooked on the first book, but this one was even better! I loved Delaney and Knox. This book is a testament that opposites really do attract!!!!

Delaney and Knox are worlds apart…literally. They come from two different backgrounds. Knox has to fight just to survive, and Delaney has been given pretty much anything she wants, but she isn’t your typical spoiled, rich girl. Knox has been hardened by life and doesn’t look much into the future, and Delaney has big plans when she graduates. The two shouldn’t even be in the same orbit, yet the two share people in their lives. Her twin sister is dating his friend, and her best friend’s boyfriend’s fate is intertwined with his. When the two meet, the fireworks explode, and not in a really good way. 

“Go to h*ll,” she spits, hatred burning in her eyes. I smirk, “Oh, Bambi, where do you think I came from?”

Yet, both of them feel something despite the fact that she finds him rude and arrogant. She thinks there is something more underneath that rough exterior. She wants to figure him out, much like a puzzle. She just needs to get past the steel walls he has surrounded himself with.

“He’s beautiful in the way that makes you stop and think. The way that demands your attention and doesn’t let you look away.” 

He knows she can see past his flaws and attitude, and he will do anything possible to keep her from seeing that. The best way he can do that is by pushing her away, but he can’t really seem to do that in a consistent way. As much as he insults her, she can’t stay away from him either. Each knows they pose a huge danger to one another…they could obliterate each other emotionally, but I so wanted them to take that chance on one another. 

OMG!!! The author, Kelsey Clayton, can build on sexual tension, and these two people have that. What started as lust turns into something really beautiful…these two bring out things in each other no one else could. He shows her how to live a little, and she shows him he is worth something. His darkness and her light are a perfect combination. 

As with the first book, it is HUGELY romantic! Yet, there are some surprises and suspense that makes an already great book pretty much perfect!!!!

Let me give you a warning, don’t plan on doing a thing until you finish the book! I started last night and didn’t come up for air until the last page was done! I can’t wait to see where the series is heading next.

𝘏𝘈𝘝𝘖𝘊. 𝘋𝘌𝘊𝘌𝘐𝘛. 𝘗𝘙𝘐𝘝𝘐𝘓𝘌𝘎𝘌.

The elite come to play on the campus of Glass Heart Academy.

𝐏𝐚𝐥𝐦𝐞𝐫

My sister was their everything. I’m their nothing.

They waited three hundred and sixty-five days after her disappearance to acknowledge I’m alive.

Their wicked games should scare me.

Except they don’t know I’m not much different than her.

𝐌𝐚𝐫𝐞𝐤

Palmer Weston isn’t anything like her sister.

She’s sweet and naive. There are plenty of reasons why I should keep my distance.

Except where’s the fun in that.

I’m a boy who loves his toys and I’ve kept her on the shelf long enough.

It seems someone is determined on giving Palmer the same fate as her sister.

Problem is I’ve never been good at sharing.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Glass Heart Savage, the first book in the Glass Heart Academy series, is a completely addictive read! I was up until the wee hours of the morning finishing it!!!

Palmer begins her senior year, just wanting to be done and out of Glass Heart Academy. It’s been a hard, hard year for her. Her sister, Reed, has been missing, along with some other girls from the academy. Reed was different. It seemed she was a part of the Glass House Boys, whereas Palmer was ignored until now. She now has their attention, and that could never be a good thing! 

The Glass House Boys are legends on campus. They come from “privilege” and are notorious for the “havoc” they create. Marek has his eyes on Palmer, even though he know he needs to keep his distance. She is off-limits, but Marek has never really lived by rules! He really is the anti-hero. I hated him at times for his cruelty toward Palmer, but I, like Palmer, couldn’t resist him either! He really does grow tremendously by the end of the book. I can’t wait to see his continued journey in book 2. 

This is definitely a dark read, but oh it was soooo good!!!! While it was dark, there were tender moments, especially the relationship between Reed and Palmer. The author combines just the right amount of sexiness, mystery, suspense, and lots of twists and turns that really kept me turning the pages. I kept telling myself “just one more chapter.” One more turned into me finishing it! And oh my gosh, what a cliffhanger! I can’t wait to get my hands on book 2 when it releases!!!!

All The Truths (Lies and Truth Duet #2) by Rina Kent Release and Review Tour with Giveaway ($25 Amazon Gift Card)

🔥🔥 HOT NEW RELEASE 🔥🔥

The highly anticipated conclusion to the Lies & Truths Duet is here! All The Truths by Rina Kent is LIVE!! #OneClick today!

Blurb

 

The truth doesn’t set you free.

Revenge shouldn’t be rushed. It needs to be savored.

Reina ruined my life and it’s only fair I ruin hers back.

Or that was the plan.

That was before she got under my skin and flowed into my blood.

Life as we know it crashes and burns.

All we have left is revenge.

Or is it?

All The Truths is a dark new adult book that contains dubious situations some readers might find offensive and/or triggering. If you’re looking for a hero, you won’t find him in Asher Carson. Please don’t read if any of that bothers you.

All The Truths is the second part of a duet and is NOT standalone.




Christie’s Review

5 STARS

An All-Time Favorite Read 

A Top Read of 2020

 

Absolutely riveting, AMAZING read!!!! I spent a late, late night finishing this one up! How could I not???? It was addictive!!!!

I knew this one was going to be good after finishing the first book, and Rina Kent blew all of my expectations out of the water!!!!! The title of the book, “All the Truths,” was a perfect choice because all the secrets and truths will be revealed!

Asher has been determined to make Reina pay for crushing him and ruining his life. Yet, he can’t reconcile the new Reina from the old Reina. She isn’t perfect, but she is real. He actually sees the smiles that weren’t there before and could that actually be real desire he sees in her eyes when he is around?

Reina now has several mysteries about herself she needs to discover before it’s too late? I liked the soul-searching journey she went on. I, like Asher and other characters, made an unfair judgement about her. She had very good reasons for acting the way she did. I really came to like her….she was one bad@## heroine!!!!

The chemistry is just as sizzling in this book as it was in the first book. Yet, there are also some real, genuine feelings mixed in with all the other complicated feelings they have for one another. Kent gives us an in-depth look into both characters. She slowly peels back the layers of these two complicated people. I never would have guessed who these two were at their core! They actually have more in common than either of them guessed! 

Not only were Asher and Reina mysteries themselves, but the twists and turns Kent included blew my mind! I really thought I was a genius and had all of this figured out in the first book, well, Rina Kent is the genius! I never expected the twists she had in store!!!! This duet are the first books I have read from this author, but she has definitely made me a fan!!!!!
