Blurb: 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.  

 

About the Author: I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide. I wanted to be a marine biologist. An actor. A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase). One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone. These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Little Hoodum by K. Webster–Release Blitz

Little Hoodlum

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 2
by K Webster
Publication Date: May 28, 2020
Genres: High School Bully Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden best friend’s little sister romance called Little Hoodlum!

There are few people in this world I thought I could count on.
My brother. My two best friends. And him.
Jordy Martinez.

Problem is, Jordy thought protecting me was his sole mission in life.
He gave up everything for me and my brother, including his freedom.

Losing him left me hollow and empty.
But after three long years, I’ve learned to live without him.

Until I get mixed up with a guy who has dangerous connections in Hood River and everything begins to crash down around me just in time for my senior year of high school.

Possessive boyfriend with a penchant for violence.
Best friend turned enemy.
Fights with my big brother.

Everything’s a mess and I’m not sure there’s any fixing it.
I might just need that bully ex-convict who’ll do anything—again—to keep me safe.

All I want is peace, happiness, and love.
And I won’t go down without a fight in order to get it.
I’m a Hoodlum after all.

They call me Little Hoodlum, but I’m not so little anymore…

This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book two in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Little Hoodlum shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.

Forbidden Fate by Mary Catherine Gebhard–Review

My previous review of ‘Whoa, just whoa” still stands strong. It is been a few days since I reached ‘The End’ and I am still gob smacked! I was so anxiously excited to read Forbidden Fate with Gray and Story that when I got FF it was a ‘don’t bother me, leave me alone and no phone use’ scenario. Forbidden Fate just cemented my love for them, along with one of my ‘Best of 2020’.

Going into FF, I knew that MCG would take us on a ride. She is a master at delivering all the feels, but in a non-conventional way. I found myself going in with some pre-conceived notions on where she will take us next. What I did not expect was the path she took us on to get to ‘The End’. Just when you think you might have an idea where this will end up, she will take you on another twist and turn. Beware!

Through MCG’s excellent writing, I felt transported into the storyline. I knew, I just knew, that there was going to be angst, heart in your throat, moments of disbelief, tears, and many episodes of hot passion for Gray and Story. MCG did not disappoint. Forbidden Fate has all the feels!! It was perfectly imperfect!!!

Bona Fide (Illusive duet, book 2) by Hazel Grace–Review

BFBanner

I have read all of Hazel Grace’s books, starting with Arranged (Array Series 1) and have seen the progression of her writing increase with each book. This writing is completely at its best in the Illusive duet.

Catfish, book 1, knocked me off my seat onto my ‘bass’😉. I was sucked in from the word Prologue. Wade has been my man since that first paragraph (sorry Dee. You get him first, but I also lay claim to him😉😂). Catfish was one heck of a ride, that I was not ready for, but COMPLETELY loved!

So, Bona Fide comes out and I thought, ‘what is the cliffhanger queen going to do to us now’? Simple answer, a lot!! If you were looking for an easy wrap up with a cute little bow, go someplace else. You will not find that here. Now, it does not mean that there may/may not be a HEA involved, that is for you to find out. It just means in either scenario, HEA or no HEA, you will be taken on a ride.

Bona Fide continues with the ever-tumultuous Reagan and Wade. Reagan is spicy, hot, not a pushover, can take care of herself and confident. She is full of witty comebacks, which had me snickering throughout the book. This does not mean that there was not angst and drama going on. At times, I felt like I needed to cut through it with a knife.
Wade has a whole other journey going on, his political journey and how to not become just another politician. When you think of the word politician, what are some things you think of? Confident, charming, relatable, goal-oriented, uncomplicated, and fearless come to mind? What about negative characteristics or people’s perception of them? Corrupt, dishonest, unethical, greedy, selfish, and bad judgment, to name a few! I will not give away what Wade does or who he is, but I will say, you really begin to feel the amount of pressure that is on his shoulders and how he tries to maintain the man beneath the political shroud. There are many things going on with Wade, but overall, you can feel how incredible of a MC he is. It truly is hard not to fall in love with him.

Hazel Grace is blossoming into an incredible author. Catfish/Bona Fide is evidence of that. There are massive amounts of angst, boat loads of drama, sprinkled with some comedic laughs and bucket loads full of hot, sexy, and romantic times. I HIGHLY recommend this series!!

Crowned By Fate by Amo Jones–Review

95468608_2876722135752900_4642622161054334976_o

Ok, everybody, visualize this. A young woman stares out into a vast countryside setting. She sees nothing but one tree and open spaces, so she decides that she is going to plant a tree. Now this would not be any normal tree, it would be her storytelling tree. This tree is named Crowned By Fate, which is eloquently written along the trunk. A book that she is pondering on writing.

As she watches her special tree grow, she notices that the trunk and leaves are strong, sturdy, and beautiful. Due to a special planting procedure, she can see what the root ball was doing. The root ball was twisted, tangled, anything but pretty with roots that go their own ways. These roots do anything but follow a predestined plan, they are confusing and intriguing, and this young woman finally got through her writer’s block courtesy of a tree.

Her books are anything but traditionally normal, but she is known for the sudden twists, turns, highs and lows, storylines that are entangled with others. Through the dark side, the beautiful is seen through her unconventional storytelling. I say this every time, ‘I don’t know how her books could get better and top this’ and every time they do, and she proves me wrong. She is dark, her storylines are convoluted, yet, through whatever pain, sadness inducing, ugliness the unconventional H/h in her books are beautiful. She may write dark romance, but all words from beginning to end are devastatingly exquisite.

Crowned By Fate is Amo Jones newest release. After a jaw dropping, hold you breathe for three years kind of cliffhanger ending, I could not even begin to imagine where this story would go. According to my husband, there was a lot of ‘WTF’, ‘Holy Sheet’ and 😲 coming from me as I read. The story of Isa and Bryant broke me. I was bawling. The amount of life they went through is simply heartbreaking. As bad as Bryant’s ‘life’ appeared to be, Isa, my poor homegirl Isa, went through multiple lives to end up where she did. Remember that twisted and tangled root ball and how you could not follow it, well, welcome to the world of Amo Jones. Do yourself a favor and don’t even try to guess the ending. You would not be able to figure it out. So many ups/downs, twists, and turns and and a little mischief thrown in.

CBF is a 5 ‘I didn’t want to ruin her. I just wanted to love her’ stars!!
