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.

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!!!!

JULIA


I never saw Noah Weston coming. He swept into my life like an unexpected storm, but soon, he was everything to me.
Until tragedy struck.
One day I was planning the rest of my life with my soulmate, and the next I was picking up the pieces of a love so strong, it broke me apart. 
It took three years to put myself back together.
Three years until I was ready to move on.
I’ll never forget it. The day he came back.
Can lightening strike twice? Maybe, but when I look into his eyes, all I remember are the last words he ever spoke to me.
The words that left me broken.


NOAH


I loved her before I knew her name. She was more than just my heartbeat. Julia Blake was a dream too good to be true.
When real life invaded the bubble we had created, I was left a broken man.
I survived, but I was dead inside. Half the man I used to be.

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Broken by Evelyn Sola was a beautiful, emotional romance!

Sparks flew when Julia and Noah met in college. Noah was definitely not the typical guy that she usually was interested in. But, there was just something about him….Noah was mesmerized by Julia from the moment he laid eyes on her. However, a tragic event tore them apart, and Sola gives us a beautifully, broken second chance romance. 

I adored both characters! Both were quite stubborn. Julia was determined to never let Noah anywhere near her again, and Noah was determined that he was going to be the man he always wanted to be for her. Each of them were determined to rebuild their lives as well too, and they both had to claw themselves out of the darkness in which they found themselves. 

Thankfully, Sola didn’t rush their reconciliation. Honestly, she couldn’t because too much had happened between not only Julia and Noah but also between Julia and his family. 

What made the book so special as well wasn’t just about second chances between them but also between Julia and Noah’s parents. Her parents also had to learn to trust him again as well. 

I liked how Sola also gave us the background of this couple. They weren’t this insta-couple. They began as friends, even though each one secretly wanted to be more. I think that made their relationship even more special. 

Sola is a new writer to me, and I enjoyed her work. She gave me not only a romance but also a book that is very relevant to the time we are living in now. It’s told with love and even gives people who made very hurtful mistakes in the past a chance at redemption.

EXCERPT

Copyright 2021 @Evelyn Sola

 I take another bite of the brownie and then lay flat on the grass, letting the October sun kiss my brown skin while I enjoy the chocolatey goodness.
“Ahh,” I say to myself, “after this, I can die happy.” I put both hands behind my head and squint at the sun beaming down on me.
“I hope not,” I hear a deep voice say.
I sit up and look at the figure, but the bright sun blocks his face. I block the sun by putting a hand on my forehead and look into a pair of familiar eyes, the clearest green I’ve ever seen. The sun dips behind a cloud, giving me a clear view of his face.
It’s the ginger hottie with the bun. He’s either a transfer or a graduate student because, in all my years here, I’ve never seen him until recently. But whatever the circumstances, he’s certainly noticeable. And I never turn down an opportunity to ogle good eye candy.
First, he’s head and shoulders taller than everyone on campus. He walks around, his shoulders broad, as if he owns the place. Unlike most of the people at this school, I’ve never seen him with an entourage. The few times I’ve seen him, he’s been alone.
His bun is messier than usual today. Half of it has fallen out of the elastic and hangs on his very broad shoulders. The wind blows, making his hair messier, and my fingers itch to put it back in place.
I’ve never been this close to him, and when I look into his face again, I notice a small scar above his left eyebrow. I envision running a finger over that scar fifty different ways.
“Well, if you ever had this brownie, you’d die a happy death too,” I finally say.
Normally, I’d be tongue-tied around someone as good looking as him, but knowing that he must be making small talk between classes and that someone like him would never be interested in me, I decide to just be myself.
“Are you going to share, then? I want to judge this brownie for myself.” His eyes twinkle when he smiles, and the smile reveals a dimple in each cheek. When he sticks his hand out, I stare at it, dumbfounded. “Noah Weston,” he says, and I finally shake his hand.
I’m a tall woman, only an inch shy of six feet. My hands have always been considered large, but now it’s totally engulfed in his. He wraps his hand around mine, holding it firmly, showing the contrast between my brown hand and his much lighter one. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say he doesn’t want to let go, but he does after I give it a little tug.
“Julia Blake.” I rub my hand on my jeans, trying to erase the electrical charge from his brief touch.

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!!!!!

Meet Maya

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.

New Review: Campus King by Mickey Miller

Campus King

by Mickey Miller

About the Book

Amazon Bestselling Author Mickey Miller brings you a brand new, enemies to lovers sports romance.
Colin West: Football superstar. Campus legend. My first kiss.
My first everything, actually.
And the first man I grew to hate.
And now, my roommate for senior year of college.

When a breakup leaves me without an apartment senior year, I’m forced to look for a new housing situation.
Luckily one comes up that’s affordable, in a perfect location.
There’s just one problem: it’s in the jock house.
Yeah, there’s me, the only girl, and three guys on the football team.

The other little problem?
One of those guys is Colin West, who has transferred into Greene this year.
After our high school romance, we didn’t exactly have a happy parting of ways.
Now he wants me back, but being with a guy like him is the last thing on my mind this year. Especially on the heels of a breakup.

I never thought I’d see a man like Colin fall so hard for someone.
And I certainly never thought that someone would be me.

I’ve just got to decide if the Campus King is for real, or if he just wants what he can’t have.

Campus King is an enemies-to-lovers standalone romance with an HEA.

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Campus King by Mickey Miller is a combination of second chance and enemies to lovers romance, and it’s a quick, sweet, and sexy read!!!!

Colin and Charlotte have a past, one Charlotte thought she left in the past until she finds out he will be one of her new roommates. She attempts to convince herself that what happened with them was her senior year in high school. She only has to get through her senior year until she graduates college and is on to better things. Too bad, Colin didn’t get that memo. He wants a future with Charlotte, and when he knows what he wants, he is all in. 

I liked both characters. Each wasn’t perfect. Both had insecurities about their future together. Charlotte is afraid he will leave without warning again, and Colin is afraid of the feelings he has for her. Yet, they are both trying; therefore, there is a bit of angst. If there wasn’t, the book wouldn’t be believable. 

Miller took his time developing their new relationship. I liked the way he emphasized the friendship they had. It really added to the romance. He also added a great cast of secondary characters. Can I just say I love the fact that Charlotte’s ex wasn’t a jerk like in other books in the genre!  I’m looking forward to the next book Miller writes!

New Review: Campus Player by Jennifer Sucevic

Campus Player

by Jennifer Sucevic

About the Book:

Trust me when I say that Rowan Michaels fever is alive and well at Western University. His fanbase is legendary. 

The guy is a major player.

Both on and off the field.

Girls fall all over themselves to be with him. They fill the stands at football practice, show up at parties he’s rumored to be at, and basically stalk him around campus.

It’s a little nauseating.

Don’t these girls have any self-respect when it comes to a hot guy?

Fine…I’ll admit it, he’s good looking. If you’re into that kind of thing. Which I’m not. I’ve got school and soccer to keep me busy which is exactly why I avoid him like an unfortunate clap diagnosis.

Too bad for me that Rowan is my father’s star quarterback. He’s practically part of the family, attending Wednesday night dinners with us. To make matters worse, we’re in the same major and get stuck together in classes every semester. It’s like the universe is trying to play a cosmic joke on me. The one guy I’d like to steer clear of is the very same one I can’t seem to get away from.

But what if Rowan isn’t the manwhore I pegged him to be?

What if one little secret has the capability to change everything between us?

*This is a mature New Adult novel with strong language and sexual situations intended for readers over the age of 18*

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

Jennifer Sucevic is a brand new writer to me, and I have to say I LOVE her!!!! I completely fell in love with her story and her characters! 

Rowan and Demi have known each other for years. Her father is the coach for the football team, and Rowan is the star quarterback. However, he has been like a part of the family for years. Too bad, Demi doesn’t feel the same. She finds him arrogant and don’t even get her started on the rumors about him on campus of his skills off of the football field. Yet, there is a part of her that finds him attractive…yeah, she hates that part of her. 

“The truth is that Rowan frightens me. He makes me feel things I’m not necessarily ready for. It’s been that way from the moment I laid eyes on him.” ~Demi~

She can’t seem to get away from him on campus now that they have classes together. As she is forced to spend more time with him, she begins realizing that there is more to him than meets the eye. Could all those rumors be wrong????

Rowan has always had it bad for Demi. He has just kept it locked up deep inside his heart. He doesn’t feel like he has ever been good enough for her. 

“My past is ugly and dark. I don’t want it to ever touch Demi. She’s everything that is light and happy.Maybe that’s why I’ve always been attracted to her. She’s the opposite of everything I grew up with. She’s like the vibrant store window I had my face smashed against as a kid. Always looking in from the outside. Not quite good enough. Always dirty and hungry and left wanting.” ~Rowan~

He grew up very differently than her. He never really knew what it was to feel safe and secure within your family. Thanks to her father, Rowan was given another chance. To say his feelings for her are complicated would be an understatement. I loved Demi, but let me say the superstar was Rowan. He had it all…looks, sex appeal, and a heart any woman would be lucky to have. He adores Demi, and it shows. He truly deserved his HEA. 

I liked the slow burn between them even though it was evident from the beginning that they had tons of chemistry!!!! The author really took her time in developing the relationship between them. It was steamy but also romantic…at times, my heart just pitter pattered for Rowan. I’m so glad I got the opportunity to read Campus Player, and I can’t wait to read more from her!!!!

New Review: The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher

The Wrong Family

by Tarryn Fisher

From the author of the instant New York Times bestseller The Wives comes another twisted psychological thriller guaranteed to turn your world upside down.

Have you ever been wrong about someone?

Juno was wrong about Winnie Crouch.

Before moving in with the Crouch family, Juno thought Winnie and her husband, Nigel, had the perfect marriage, the perfect son—the perfect life. Only now that she’s living in their beautiful house, she sees the cracks in the crumbling facade are too deep to ignore.

Still, she isn’t one to judge. After her grim diagnosis, the retired therapist simply wants a place to live out the rest of her days in peace. But that peace is shattered the day Juno overhears a chilling conversation between Winnie and Nigel…

She shouldn’t get involved.

She really shouldn’t.

But this could be her chance to make a few things right.

Because if you thought Juno didn’t have a secret of her own, then you were wrong about her, too.

From the wickedly dark mind of bestselling author Tarryn Fisher, The Wrong Family is a taut new thriller that’s riddled with twists in all the right places.

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

A Top Read in Psychological Thriller

The Wrong Family by Tarryn Fisher is a compelling, riveting, and a nail-biter of a read! As usual, I finish her books usually within a day!!!

The book is told in two women’s voices, Winnie and Juno. Fisher definitely digs deep into both women’s psyches. At first glance, it appears these two women couldn’t be more different. As I learned more, they shared more than a few similarities. Both have worked in the mental health field, both have made really bad decisions in the past, and both feel like they know what is best for those around them, whether in their personal or professional lives. 

Each woman thought their past decisions were the right ones, but they soon learn you can be wrong. Juno lives in the Winnie’s home, along with Winnie’s husband, Nigel, and their son, Samuel. In the beginning, she thinks they are the perfect family, and really, that is what Winnie tries to portray to the outside world. When Juno hears something she was never meant to hear, she decides she has to intervene. Has she learned nothing from her past…all she has to do is look to her past to realize her last intervention didn’t go so well. Winnie knows something about that because her actions in the past have completely altered her life with her husband and son. Winnie and Juno’s paths are about to converge in ways they never imagined. 

If you know anything about Tarryn Fisher’s writing, you know never to trust her synopses. There is so much going on underneath the surface. She perfectly pulls back each layer to reveal twists and turns you never see coming! 

I saw that some reviewers mentioned that this isn’t like her books in the past. It was a bit different from her other stuff, but I thought it was just as good! For me, that is a characteristic of a great writer. Fisher has never fit into a nice, perfect genre, and that is what makes her so amazing, and she always keeps me coming back for more!

New Review: Corrupt My Mind (A Brother’s Best Friend Romance (North Haven University Book 1) by Kelsey Clayton

🖤🖤 𝐇𝐎𝐓 𝐍𝐄𝐖 𝐑𝐄𝐋𝐄𝐀𝐒𝐄 🖤🖤

Your next bad boy book boyfriend is here!!!! Corrupt My Mind by Kelsey Clayton is AVAILABLE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!!!!!!

About the Book:

My name is Zayn Bronsyn,

and I think I screwed up.

I wasn’t supposed to fall,

especially not for her.

She’s in a league of her own,

and I’m just her brother’s scumbag friend.

The last time I saw her,

she was thirteen with braces.

Now, she’s back from boarding school,

with an hourglass body that’ll bring me to my knees.

If Easton finds out I hooked up with his sister,

he might actually kill me.

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

but I can’t resist dragging her into my messed up world.

Amelia Donovan might be the one to revive my blackened heart.

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!!!!!

4-Star Review · Cozy Mystery · Kindle Unlimited · Mystery · New Review

New Review: Murder at the Gorge (The Exham-On-Sea Murder Mysteries #7) by Frances Evesham

About the Book:

A joke? A prank? Or something more sinister?

When the Exham-on-Sea residents are targeted by anonymous emails containing apparently harmless nursery rhymes, no one knows whether to laugh or shudder until an unexplained death touches the town.

Libby Forest, baker, chocolatier and Exham’s very own resident private investigator, alongside her partner Max Ramshore, set out to solve the puzzle before more people die. But when Max’s ex-wife arrives on the scene, ahead of Max and Libby’s long-awaited nuptials, things go from bad to worse.

With the town and their relationship under threat, Max and Libby need the help of the Exham History Society if they’re going to find the nursery rhyme killer in time.

Murder at the Gorge is the seventh in a series of Exham-on-Sea Murder Mysteries set at the small English seaside town full of quirky characters, sea air, and gossip.

If you love Agatha Christie-style mysteries, cosy crime, clever dogs and cake, then you’ll love these intriguing whodunnits.

Christie’s Review

4 STARS

Well-written and delightful cozy mystery/romance!

Libby has a lot going on….the new cafe she is a part of is opening, and most importantly, she is gearing up to marry her partner, Max, in the next few weeks. And, Christmas is right around the corner too. So, the last thing she and Max need to be involved in is a murder mystery, but that is exactly what they get! 

Several of the citizens have received emails from an unknown source that are nursery rhymes. At first, they seem to be harmless until Max discovers the body of a woman who had received one. Now, they are taking on a whole new meaning. If that wasn’t enough, Max’s ex-wife comes back into his life needing his help. She is also receiving threatening emails. He and Libby think it all has to be related, but they have to find the link that connects it all.

The mystery is not as cut and dry as it seems. It involves digging into the history of several of the residents and the town itself. By doing that, readers get to know more about the characters. There are surprises along the way, and I had no idea who the killer would turn out to be…which I love in my mysteries. 

If you like your mysteries to keep you guessing, along with some really great characters and a lovely setting, you can’t go wrong with this one!

New Review: Well This Sucks by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

Hot New Review!

Well This Sucks by CoraLee June & Carrie Gray

Release Date: September 20th

About the Book:

I treat eating pancakes on patios like it’s a personality trait.

Brunch is my jam. I like the beach, shopping, carbs, and reading naughty books on the train during my commute. I wear pink. Lots of it. If Tinder were an Olympic sport, I’d take home the gold. I can rock stilettos like they’re a pair of Nike joggers. I’m basically basic.

I’m in the prime of my life. I’ve got my dream job as the head of marketing, and I’ve been steadily dating myself for the better half of the last decade. I’m thirty, flirty, and thriving.

Or at least I was, until some jerk had the audacity to turn me into a vampire.

I don’t do blood and doom and gloom. I sure as hell don’t like sleeping in a coffin, avoiding garlic bread, and these ridiculous vamp politics. And don’t get me started on Diego. He’s vampire royalty and a pain in my butt. A very sexy pain in the butt. When he’s not driving me crazy with all his rules, he’s turning my panties into Niagara falls.

I absolutely refuse to live the rest of my immortal life in some wannabe nineties grunge music video.

This SUCKS!

Christie’s Review

5 STARS

All-Time Favorite Read

A Top Read of 2020

Well This Sucks is one of the wittiest vampire romances I have ever read, complete with the sassiest heroine I have come across in a really long time!

The unstoppable duo of CoraLee June and Carrie Gray have taken the vampire trope and turned it on its head. It isn’t the same story all of us have read before. It’s smart, sexy and full of fantastic characters.

Here’s a little background. Drew is probably the unluckiest person when it comes to dating. As the story opens, it seems her streak is continuing in dating losers. However, our girl is talented in running off losers. Her night looks like it is looking up with a hook-up in the alley with her sexy waiter. Imagine her surprise, when she ends up being a midnight snack for said waiter’s grandma. Luck is on her side, depending on how you look at it, that she doesn’t die and instead becomes one of the undead. 

Drew catches the eye of the king of vampires, Diego. He is drawn to her for some reason as she is to him. Who wouldn’t be? The man exudes sex appeal. Our sassy heroine doesn’t care how sexy he is. She has always played by her rules, and she is determined to continue doing so. She doesn’t care about vampire rules or politics. 

The banter and chemistry between these two is both funny and electric. My favorite part of the book is the nuances tucked between the pages…like the wonderful power and strength of women which is perfectly embodied in Drew. When you add the spunky Betty, the grandma vampire, she shows us that age really is just a number.

This talented duo of writers continues to amaze me. I have read so many different genres from them this year, and each one is brilliant. They continue to prove to their readers that they can’t be boxed into just one genre. So, ladies, continue conquering the writing world…y’all rock!!!!

Carrie Gray

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.
