Wreck My Plans (North Haven University #3) by Kelsey Clayton Blog Tour with Review & Excerpt

My name is Carter Trayland,

And I really screwed up.

Wreck My Plans, an all-new standalone enemies-to-lovers romance from Kelsey Clayton is available now!

I should’ve ended things before they began.

Instead, I wound up in a twisted love triangle,

One that I never wanted to be a part of.

The wrong choice sent my life on a whirlwind.

A woman I forced myself to love is dead.

My best friend was nearly blamed for her murder.

And the one I’ve always wanted, now wants revenge.

Her favorite person is gone, and she thinks it’s my fault.

I’m not about to correct her either.

Not when the reality is so much worse.

She can’t find out the truth of what happened.

Knowing would ruin her in ways I can’t fathom.

If blaming me is her way of coping, I’ll gladly carry that burden.

Because Tyeler Morgan is the one girl I’d protect at all costs.

Wreck My Plans is a standalone and part of the North Haven University series. It deals with sensitive topics that my be triggering to some readers.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Wow! This series just keeps getting better! Wreck My Plans is a beautiful, emotional tale of forgiveness and redemption. 

Carter has tried to put his painful past behind him and live with a life choice that completely changed him in ways he never imagined. Tye began her life as no child should have to. Her bright spot was her best friend, Davi. She rescued her and gave her a life she could never imagine. Now, she has to endure life without her by her side…taken from her, and she blames Carter. She means to make him pay! As the title suggests, she wants to wreck his plans for a good life, but it may be Carter who wrecks hers. 

I have come to love each character Clayton creates. She introduces them to us throughout each book, but I have no idea of their real story until they get to speak in their own books. She makes each one unique in their own right, and it is the same for Carter and Tye. 

Carter always wanted Tye, but he ended up with her best friend instead. He was faithful to Davi; however, he couldn’t forget Tye. As he tried to break things off, tragedy struck, and Davi was gone. He tried to make things right, but in her grief, Tye’s budding feelings for him turned to hate. The girl is a firecracker, and some of the pranks she pulls on him are pretty funny! I have to admire Carter’s determination to tear down her walls despite all the roadblocks she puts up.

Clayton really made me feel the depth of Tye’s grief and hurt. Davi was everything to her. She isn’t sure how to keep living life without her by her side….Davi literally saved her when they were children. Clayton also illustrated through Tye that grief can blind us to the truths we don’t want to see in those we love. Imagine Tye’s surprise when she realizes the spark she felt with Carter hasn’t gone away, and he is the one person who makes her feel safe and loved. As you might guess, this causes a lot of angst and drama for both of them. 

 Clayton can always take darkness and turn it to light. The journey isn’t always easy for the characters, but man oh man, the ending is so worth it. I admired how she made Davi somewhat of a central character even though she wasn’t there. I learned as Tye did that Davi wasn’t the perfect savior she always thought she was, and Carter tried to keep that from her. 

As always, I hate to tell the characters good-bye, but let me tell you her next book promises to be just as good. It’s Easton’s turn to tell his story, and it is going to be a doozy!!!!

Excerpt

“What the fuck is she doing here?”

I turn toward the door to see Carter, Jace, and Jace’s girlfriend standing there. The guys look just as shocked to see me as I am to see them, but the girl next to Jace is most likely picturing ways to murder me in her mind.

“You two know each other?” Amelia asks.

She grunts. “Not exactly, but I know enough of her to know she’s a fucking bitch.”

“Woah,” Kennedy steps in. “Easy, Paige.”

“Yeah, babe. Let’s calm down a little,” Jace tries, but she’s not having it.

She rips her arm out of his hold. “No! Fuck no! She tried to put you away for life, Jace. For life!”

The reminder of my best friend’s murder trial is a slap in the face, and my testimony was based off my belief that he actually did it. If I had seen the tape showing the other angle before I got on the stand, I never would have agreed to testify. The one thing I can see, though, is that Jace seems to value his life a little more than he used to, because he doesn’t try to calm his girlfriend down again.

Paige glares at me as she steps forward and into my face. “I don’t know what the fuck you’re doing here, but let me make one thing clear: if you try fucking with my friends, my family, we’re going to have serious issues.”

There is absolutely nothing that I find intimidating about this girl. To be honest, it looks like I could have the right guy punt her across a football field. But I can respect her loyalty to her friends and the courage to jump into the lion’s den to defend them.

I used to have that.

She turns around and walks back toward Jace. “Come on. We’re leaving.”

“No. Allow me.” I interrupt and my eyes find Carter’s. “Suddenly, this is the last place I want to be.”

Neither Kennedy or Amelia try to stop me as I slip out the door—not that I expected them to. They’ve been friends with them longer. Of course, Carter manages to take everything from me. He took Davi. Now he already has Kennedy and Amelia. There’s no way those two will have anything to do with me once I start doing things to get back at Carter, and nothing will stand in the way of my plans.

Nothing.

As if he has an actual death wish, the door opens and Carter comes running out, calling my name. I consider not stopping. I’m sure nothing good can come from talking to him, but my anger is enough to get me to freeze.

“Don’t leave,” he tells me. “I’m sorry for what Paige said.”

I balk. “For what Paige said? That’s what you’re sorry for?”

Running his fingers through his hair, he sighs. “Not the only thing, but it’s something I’m sorry for. Can we just go somewhere and talk?”

A bark of humorless laughter echoes out of me. “No. I don’t want to go anywhere with you. I don’t even want to fucking look at you.” My fists clench, and I can feel my nails digging into my skin as he stays quiet. “You just have the perfect life, don’t you? You’ve got your team and your friends and your family. And where’s mine? Oh. That’s right. Six feet under, right where you fucking left her.”

And Beck Clermont controlled them all. 

He was arrogant and conceited, and from the moment I met him, he had made up his mind about me. 

Dangerously handsome and wickedly cruel, he had no intention of letting me spend my senior year under the radar. 

The secrets of old money ran deep, and even though I barely knew them, the sins of my family had put a target on my back. 

He was a hurricane, and I was unprepared for the storm. 

His touch fatal. His impact irreparable. 

There was no negotiation. 

He stole my heart. Without warning, without permission.

5 STARS

All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2021

I love to find new writers that I am crazy about, and I found that in Holly Renee!!!! I was completely addicted to The Touch of a Villain from the opening scene!!!

This book was all the things I love about reading…flawed characters that I ended up loving, a great storyline, a hint of mystery, a steamy romance, and a stunning setting! 

Josie has moved to Clermont Bay not by choice but because she was forced to. She has not only just lost her beloved mother, but now she is living with the father that was always absent and cold. She is trying to make it through her senior year and leave Clermont Bay behind her. She certainly didn’t see Beck coming and the chaos he would bring into her life. 

Beck’s family comes from old money, hence his last name is Clermont. However, Beck isn’t your normal bully and regular jerk which makes this book different from others in the genre. His mood only turns dark when he finds out that Josie is the stepsister to his once best friend and now enemy Lucas. He has been waiting to make Lucas pay for his crimes, and sweet Josie fits the bill quite nicely. 

Josie is innocent in some ways, but in other ways she isn’t. She certainly doesn’t back down from Beck which makes him hate her and yet makes him want her more. She tries her best to stay off of his radar and keep her distance. Her hatred for him burns just as hotly as his does for her, but he also makes her feel things she hasn’t ever felt, thus drawing her even more into his orbit. There isn’t anything about Josie that is malicious. Around others, Beck is sweet and caring, and I saw some glimpses of that with Josie, but his blind hatred for Lucas always resurfaces. I definitely understood why, but I wanted to just shake him. She had nothing to do with her brother’s crimes. 

The storyline and pacing was spot on. I literally forgot everything while I was reading this, even housework!!! When I finally looked up at the clock, hours had passed. It has been a while since I have done that with a book. The storyline was a bit reminiscent of Romeo and Juliet because of the two families hating one another. 

The chemistry between the two crackled! From their very first meeting, I could feel the sexual tension. Oh my gosh, I love when a writer can give me butterflies!!! Beck is the bad boy I couldn’t resist, but I, like Josie, wanted to slap him many times. 

There was a hint of mystery as well because of the dark secrets everyone seems to be hiding. It seems like most people know what those secrets are except Josie, and yet she seems to be always paying the price for them, both from Beck and her own family. Oh my, what an ending! Renee really rocked me with that one. I’m not sure that Beck can redeem himself again in Josie’s eyes, but I’m certainly hoping he can. 

I have to warn you, though, if you start reading this one, you won’t be doing anything else. Make sure your schedule is free for the several hours it takes you to finish.The icing on the cake is the beautiful setting of the beach. I could literally smell the salt water in the air.  I am waiting on pins and needles for the next book!!!!

The Art of Falling for You (Falling #1) by Maya Hughes Release Blitz with Review

The Art Of Falling For You (Falling #1)

By Maya Hughes

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: Najla Qamber

Release Date: March 11, 2021



ABOUT THE BOOK


“Are you stalking me?”

“We live right next door to each other, New Girl.”

Bay Bishop aka The New Girl is my new neighbor. Glasses, stage crew black clothes and a knack for fading into the background.

She’s probably the only one who rolls her eyes when I walk past instead of cheering on my last touchdown play. But before I can shove her into the recesses of my mind filed under “Not my problem” she lands herself smack dab in the middle of my dreams.

I catch her singing with a voice unlike any I’ve heard before that taps into feelings I shouldn’t have for the girl who avoids me at all costs. I need to know why she hates me.

With three months until graduation, the final play is on. Only it’s not for more points. It’s for Bay.

Unlike my success on the field, this win is anything but assured. But I can’t stop myself from taking the risk.

There’s no flashing scoreboard.

There’s no cheering crowd.

There’s only her and me.

The countdown clock is ticking. The only thing scarier about finding my first love will be losing her.

The Art of Falling for You is the first book in the new Fulton U universe sports romance, Falling trilogy.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

The Art of Falling for You is the reason why Maya Hughes is one of my favorite writers! It’s a beautiful, emotional love story!

Bay has been The New Girl in her high school for three years. She tries her best to blend into the background until she can leave her small town behind her. Dare does anything but blend in. He is a star football player that commands attention whenever he enters a room. Neither one of them stray from their social groups until their paths intertwine, and in an instant everything will change for them.

Dare and Bay have shared some classes but never more than a few words. In fact, Bay treats him nothing like others do. She doesn’t do anything to attract his attention which Dare can’t understand. However, when he hears her singing in her backyard, she becomes something he can’t forget. 

Before I go in depth about my feelings for these two characters, I have to say that the way this book is written is genius. It starts in the present, but then Hughes takes us back to the past to that day Dare heard Bay singing. We end back in the present with one heck of a cliffhanger! Thank you so much, Maya Hughes, for not shortening their story. Giving their early romance its own book was wonderful. I felt so connected to both of them!

So…my feelings for Dare and Bay…I loved  them. Both of them had their own opinions of each other. Bay didn’t disguise her hatred toward Dare which he can’t understand. Most people, especially girls, love him. Bay has a good reason to not like Dare very much. As Dare seeks her out more, she begins to trust him, and a friendship begins that turns quickly to love. However, Dare and Bay have certain issues that begin to impact their relationship. I knew my heart would be put through the wringer, and I was right. 

Book 2 cannot arrive quickly enough….that cliffhanger was brilliant. Great move, Maya Hughes!!!!

Maya Hughes, that’s me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! 🙂 I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.

The Fourth Time Charm: A Friends to Lovers Romance (Fulton U) by Maya Hughes

ABOUT THE BOOK


“Are you sleeping with my daughter?” 

Not the question I wanted to hear from my coach. The man holding my pro future in the palm of his hand. 

The answer: No, sir.

The real answer: I’d sure as hell like to be.

Marisa’s been my best friend since third grade. And now she needs my help–and a place to stay. Senior year was supposed to be the year to keep some distance until the season finished and my draft prospects were safe. 

But resisting her is becoming impossible. Movie Thursdays under the blankets. Study sessions on my bed. Wild party nights where I kept any guy interested at bay with a single glare. 

Her dad can bench my ass for the entire season, so she’s off limits–for now. 

She’s the only woman I’ve ever loved. And one heated night, I can’t stop fighting every cell in my body and can’t stop myself from sampling her sexy smile, her sweet smell, and her sultry curves. 

We’re walking a tightrope with my future on the line. Let’s just make sure Coach doesn’t find out…

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

A Top 10 Read of 2021

The Fourth Charm by Maya Hughes is a beautifully, written best friends to lovers romance full of emotion!!!

Marisa and LJ have been friends since they were children. Each of them have offered the other a safe place when things were tough growing up. As they grew older, that bond and friendship developed into feelings that went beyond friendship. However, those few moments when they both might have felt that spark never amounted to anything more. Their time together is rapidly ending…LJ hopefully going into professional football, and Marisa going to Europe for a once in a lifetime chance internship. I could feel their chance at romance slipping through their fingers, and I was at times screaming at my Kindle for them to “wake up” and see what was right in front of them!!!!

Hughes did such a great job of giving her readers their backstory. I loved the flashbacks of their childhood together. Granted, both had things happen in their childhood that completely determined their future…Marisa had a rougher go of it. Yet, they were ALWAYS there for one another. I could see that they could have such a great future together if they could let go of the past, especially Marisa. The synopsis just scratches the surface of their relationship. There are two prominent backstories that add angst to the story…LJ’s determination of going pro and what it would mean to his family. Marisa has a whole lot of baggage to unpack. 

I have to say LJ is one of my very favorite characters. Without spoiling things, he isn’t what all the rumors swirling around campus say he is!!! He is the whole package…looks, sex appeal, and oh my goodness, his heart is made of pure gold. I just LOVED him. 

Marisa is a very complex, complicated character. I would get so MAD at her for running hot and cold with LJ, but as I got to know her, I could understand! She deserves someone who loves her, and she deserves answers from her father. 

The Fourth Charm is the first top 10 read of 2021 for me. It isn’t just your normal New Adult Romance. The story itself is complex as are the characters. It’s definitely worth reading!!!!!

New Review: Scorched (The Frenemy Series Book 4) by Kate Benson

Scorched

Scorched

By Kate Benson

About the Book

When I agreed to use my vacation to watch my best friend and baby sister get married, I had no idea I’d be strapped to her maid of honor, Alex – my boss and nemesis – for the entire week.
When we turned to liquor to make the best of a bad situation, we woke to find our entire world turned upside down.
It would be easy enough to forget the whole thing – we barely remember that night as it is – but when it happens again, something between us shifts from hatred into something else.
That’s where it gets complicated.
It’s been said you sacrifice a lot for the ones you love.
If that’s the truth, why does it feel like I’m the one getting scorched?

he might actually kill me.

She’s too innocent, too perfect for a guy like me,

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Corrupt My Mind is a spin-off of the North Haven University series, and I LOVED that series. So, you can imagine my delight when I found out she was doing this series. She did not disappoint!!!!!

Zayn is best friends with Easton, and these two share a much deeper friendship than most people do. They have seen each other at their best and at their worst. So, Zayn would never do anything to betray that trust, that is until the temptation of Easton’s sister, Amelia. She comes home, and she is NOT the little girl he remembers.  He does everything possible to resist her, but it gets harder every time he sees her. When danger surrounds her, he will do everything in his power to keep her safe all while facing his feelings for her. 

The book is told in both  Zayn and Amelia’s voices which gives readers a deeper insight into their minds. Zayn thinks he doesn’t deserve the good things in life, especially Amelia’s love. But, my gosh, he has the biggest heart EVER. He is loyal, and that loyalty is illustrated through his relationship with Easton. No one could ask for a better friend than Zayn. He deserves everything good in life, and he definitely deserves Amelia. 

Amelia is everything a heroine should be…strong, independent, and like, Zayn, very loyal to those she loves. Both Zayn and Easton underestimate this girl’s strength. She can also be stubborn, but who could blame her with the way her feelings are jerked around by Zayn. However, he was protecting himself from the hurt of possibly losing her. When the two are together, they make a formidable team!

The chemistry was off the charts. Clayton did a great job of building it slowly, so readers are able to savor it! The angst that is present in the story isn’t just added for effect. It really drives the direction the story is going in. 

This book has everything that makes Kelsey Clayton so phenomenal…sexual chemistry, romance, and a hint of suspense. All those things make me fly through the pages, not coming up for air until I’m finished with the last page. As always, she gives us just a hint about the characters she will introduce us to in the next book!!!! Of course, I can’t wait until I get my hands on it!!!!!

She’s off limits. He has none.

There’s a girl.

Beautiful. Popular. Fake.

Probably my damnation.

Did that stop me? Do I care? No and no.

There’s a line between right and wrong. Moral and immoral.

And then there’s her.

I cross every limit with blood-coated fingers.

She says she hates me.

I say I hate her too as I trap her, own her.

Make her all mine.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

No one does dark romance, chemistry, and emotion quite like Rina Kent! The series is “hands down” one of my very favorites!!!!

I knew Cole was going to be a surprise, and I was right. Kent didn’t disappoint. Behind his quiet facade is a much darker boy than I imagined, but man is he irresistible and infuriating. I could see exactly why Silver hated him. He lived to torment her, but as I read their story, I realized it wasn’t for the reasons I thought it was.

Cole and Silver are pretty perfect for one another. They were always in competition with one another. If they weren’t competing for first place, they were constantly arguing or insulting one another. Yet, their story was filled with love and emotion.

Both Cole and Silver had their issues. I won’t delve too deep into them because I will not reveal any spoilers because there are plenty of twists and surprises in store for you. I will tell you Silver puts on the mask of coldness and popularity, but it is her way of having control. As she says, “It means I get to keep all my pieces together.”

Cole likes control as well, but he expresses it in a very different way. He uses it to control other people. When these two come together, it’s like a burning inferno. They have a past, and I liked that Kent included flashbacks to really help understand their complicated relationship.

As with all her other books, there is darkness, but she always gives her characters light. Her writing is beautiful, almost poetic at times. That is what makes Rina Kent so special!!!!

LEO by Jay McLean is live!! Don’t miss the third book in the New Adult/Coming of Age Series, The Preston Brothers!!

BLURB

One single summer changed them forever, and one moment of devastating silence destroyed it all. 

Growing up with six siblings, Leo Preston has always struggled to find his voice.

While his brothers are loud, greedy, and somewhat obnoxious, Leo is forever the quiet one.

The thinker. 

The listener. 

He watches his life pass by as an outsider in his own world, absent and alone. 

Lost.

Until he finds her. 

For Leo, Mia Kovács is like a prize, a gift wrapped in passion and devotion.

And she’s his—his very own secret he doesn’t have to share. 

Together, they can overcome anything…

heartache and destruction, guilt and regret. 

Mia gives Leo everything he didn’t know he needed, 

including her fragile heart. 

The only thing she doesn’t give him… 

are secrets of her own. 

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

“I used to think of you as my sunrise, but in that moment, I realized you were the sun, the stars, the moon, the sky, the ground, and everything in between.” ~Leo~

Leo is one of my top 10 reads of 2020 and an all-time favorite read!!!!

How do you review a book that is beyond words? How do you give it the accolades it so richly deserves? I’m going to do my best, and I’m sure I will fall short!

One summer changes everything for Leo and Mia. Both have their own issues, and they find in each other, someone who sees them for who they are deep down in their souls. They are really just children entering puberty. This is just the very beginning of their journey to discovering themselves as individuals and as a couple. McLean doesn’t rush that journey; that is what makes this book so incredibly special. The book takes place over many years, and I LOVED that!!!

Leo is so completely different from his brothers. While they are loud and can be obnoxious, Leo is the quiet one, always watching and listening. There are times he doesn’t know where he fits in with his family. Mia struggles with abandonment and rejection.These things will impact their future. However, when life throws them curveballs, and boy does it throw them curveballs, they always seem to find their way back to one another.

McLean is a born storyteller. All the ingredients of romance and emotion come together perfectly. She knows how to make you cry tears of sadness and tears of absolute joy. If that wasn’t enough, she threw in some twists I was NOT expecting!!! In addition, she writes so beautifully. If you look carefully, you will see the deeper parts of her writing…the symbolism she uses to tell her readers the story of these two very special characters.

Leo and Mia’s story is one that consumed me…heart and soul! It is one of those rare, rare books that you want to take your time and devour it because the only regret you will have is when you read the very last page!

New Review: Hard Fall (Trophy Boyfriends #2) by Sara Ney

Release Date: August 18

“Hard Fall”
That’s what my mom is always saying: “The bigger you are, the harder you fall.” She’s talking about love—I’ve never been in it myself, but that doesn’t stop me from secretly matchmaking for my friends. Who would suspect me, a world class athlete, of meddling in other people’s love lives? I love Love, especially when it’s not me who’s doing the falling…

“No Thanks.”
That’s what Hollis Westbrooke said when I asked her on a date. Well, propositioned her, actually—but it was all a big joke; one she doesn’t think is funny. My stomach is in knots since I might actually like this girl so the joke is on me. Hollis’s father is my boss—and she doesn’t date players.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall—especially when biggest player is me.

5 STARS

Hard Fall is exactly why Sara Ney is one of my all-time favorite rom-com writers! I’m so glad she gave her readers Buzz’s story! I was in love with him in Hard Pass, and I fell even harder for him in this one!!! So, this was a perfect title for this book!

Hollis and Buzz might look like a couple who would have nothing in common. Buzz appears to have no cares in the world. He seems so relaxed about everything…nothing is too serious for him. Hollis, on the other hand, is very serious. She is the daughter of his boss, and she wants nothing to do with the family business of baseball. She has made her own way in the world, and she has every intention of continuing that journey. When she meets him, everything she thought she knew about herself and relationships will change…even if she resists at every turn. She will eventually come to realize she has more in common with Buzz than she ever imagined. 

Buzz aka Trace is the BEST!!! He is a flirt, and to be honest with you, I thought he was also a player! Holy moly, I was so wrong! That was the nicest surprise of all! Women completely underestimate him. This is a guy who works on houses, is a member of his mother’s book club,and has just about the biggest heart, who truly cares about others’ happiness. In fact, he is a bit of a matchmaker. If women aren’t completely stereotyping him, they are taking advantage of him. Even Hollis makes judgments about him. The press calls him “America’s Favorite Pastime Playboy.” Hollis wants no part of that. She has had her fill of bad men in the form of her ex and her own father. However, he isn’t going to accept that…nope…not Trace. He is an optimist, and he is going to make Hollis his. We all know what he did to Noah in the first book! 

As she gets to know him more, she realizes he isn’t at all the playboy she thought he was. 

“I was expecting a sarcastic, entitled a**h****, and now that I know for a fact he’s not, I wish I didn’t. I want to go back to the place where I put him in a box, on the shelf, to sit, stereotyped and safely away from my heart.”

Whatever this is with Trace, she begins to see life and even herself differently. She realizes there really are good guys wrapped in the most unlikeliest of packages. She discovers that she can be herself in all her quirkiness with him. 

Ney always gives her readers a fantastic secondary cast of characters…Buzz was the perfect example of this! We are able to see why he is the character he is because of his family. OMG…I loved his mother!!!! Being around them, gives our stubborn Hollis a whole new idea of family…one of love and joy. 

Ney’s awesome sense of humor always shines through in every one of her books, and it is one of the very reasons I love her writing. For instance,  Trace visualizes himself as Jake Ryan and Hollis as Molly Ringwald in the closing scene of Sixteen Candles. By the way, one of my favorite movies of all time, so I LOVED that! However, my absolute favorite is this one….a nod to Silence of the Lambs….

“I have her, I know it–and I plan to keep her, and not in an ‘I’m going to make a lamp out of your skin’ kind of way.” 

OMG, that one had me rolling!!!! If you like a writer who can make you forget about real life for a while, by giving you a book to make you laugh and swoon, that is sweet and spicy, along with great characters, you can never go wrong with Sara Ney!!!!!
