The Darkest Star – Release Day & Review!

You guys all know I’m pretty obsessed with Jennifer L. Armentrout.  I love everything she’s ever written and this book is a companion to her Lux world which is where many of us started our love affair with her writing.  She was the first author I read when, exhausted with a baby / toddler who never slept, I finally relented and downloaded the kindle app to my tablet.  Obsidian was being offered for free, so I gave it a shot and the rest is history.  It was extra fun for me that the publishing house was located in Ft. Collins, CO, a city I know quite well as I attended college there and lived in the area most of my life.

Returning to the world of the Luxen and Origins and aliens among us was actually kind of a relief.  That sounds odd, but really I felt like I had been holding my breath and waiting for a continuation of the adventures there.  We finally get more about Luc in TDS – the great and powerful Origin we met along the way in Kat and Daemon’s stories.  There’s a splash of our old favorites as well, a pinch of Archer, a dash of Daemon, but really this is Evie’s story and so we have to step away from them to fall into her reality.  But Luc is there, so it’s mostly okay.

43636866_1591875677580655_7247340227725885440_o

Secrets and lies are common threads that can’t be avoided in the Luxen world.  Evie finds herself completely submerged in both very quickly after simply going to a club with a friend.  I don’t love spoilers, so I can’t say much except nothing is really as it seems (ain’t that always the way?) and what you think you know you probably don’t.  This cast is fantastic, and I’m excited for the next one.  I’ll ALWAYS be excited for the next one.  Always.  Jennifer gives me all the feels every time I read her stuff and I find her entirely re-readable which just adds to the appeal,

You want to read this one.  If you haven’t read the Lux series, no worries – you can jump right into this and won’t be lost at all.  I will highly recommend that if you read this first you then go back and pick up Lux.  Naturally.  Start with Obsidian.  You won’t regret it!

Forbidden Fate – Blog Tour w/ Review!

There’s nothing about this series that isn’t painful. The twists and turns aren’t always unexpected but I have gasped and growled and cursed the author more during this journey than any other series in my recent memory.

Story and Gray are a f*cking mess. So is everyone else, honestly. I have high hopes, but know that the emotional terrorism that is the hallmark of this series and MCG as a writer aren’t quite done with me.

Recommend, with a big fat brace yourself warning.

Title: Forbidden Fate
Series: Crowne Point #3
Author: Mary Catherine Gebhard
Genre: New Adult Bully Romance
Release Date: May 28, 2020

I only had one rule:
don’t fall in love with the cruel prince.
I broke it.
When the clock
struck twelve, I went back to being a servant. He promised to let me go with my
heart in pieces…but Grayson Crowne was always king at breaking
promises. 
I refuse to let him
lock me in a tower. 
I have no choice but
to take the only out offered to me–another cruel prince.
Refuge in a man I
loathe.
Rescued from the man
I love.
I wanted to forget
Grayson, forget Crowne Hall, and hide, but fate has other plans.
But if Grayson and I
are fated, then our fate is forbidden.
Our happily ever
after will only end one way…in heartbreak.

Erik

Nothing rattles me. Well…almost nothing. As the most even-tempered player on the Chicago Blaze, I take everything in stride – hockey, fame and life in general. No one knows that deep down, even I’ve got a trigger. She’s a tall brunette with a gorgeous smile and an iron will. The woman who crushed my heart long ago. I never plan to return to Emery, Wisconsin and lay eyes on Allie Douglas again – until suddenly, I’m left without a choice.

Allie

Somehow, I’m keeping it all together. Raising my nieces and nephew alone and working takes everything I’ve got and then some, but I get by. I don’t have time for love, and who needs a man, anyway? I gave up the love of my life a decade ago, and now he’s just a distant memory. Until one day, he comes back home. And once I see him, I’m not keeping it together anymore.

Not even close.

S.E. Hall, New York Times bestselling author

Jackson, an all-new standalone dark romance in the fan-favorite Rydeville Elite Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis, is available now!

Jackson_ecover2 Book 5

The devil came to me in disguise. Too bad I didn’t notice until it was far too late.

Vanessa:

The devil doesn’t always wear an evil mask.

Sometimes, he appears in the most beautiful form.

Like the super-hot bad boy with the dirty-blond hair and a wicked glint in his blue eyes who swept in out of nowhere, stealing all the air from my lungs.

I thought he was my savior.

But he’s my ruination.

And he’s just taken a machete to my heart.

Jackson:

For years, my rage seethed under the surface. Hidden behind a cloudy haze of my poison of choice.

But now, the fog has cleared.

And I’m out for blood.

I will annihilate those responsible for taking my sister from me.

Except he’s not here, so I go for the next best target.

The woman he abandoned.

Until it suited him to drag her into this messed-up elite world.

Sucks to be her.

Because when I’m done with Vanessa, she’ll wish she was dead.

Absolution – Release Day w/ Review!

I have been waiting for the conclusion to this trilogy, and was not disappointed! This love story is full of angst and at it’s core is a coming of age / discovery story.

The direction this final installment is headed feels pretty obvious from the beginning, and the ending is very satisfying IMO. What else can I say about a couple whose ship name would be Solace? Their destiny is clear from the first book but it’s a rough journey!

Ms. Grey pulls zero emotional punches here. Recommend this trilogy!

One heart
