Sinning Like Hell (St. Simeon Prep, #2) by Trilina Pucci–Review

Phew, she did it again! Ms. Pucci nailed the Romeo and Juliet theme with a twist of her own. Just Like Heaven left us on such a high cliffhanger, I wondered what was next. Sinning Like Hell (*chef’s kiss*) was the perfect continuation for Calder and Sutton!

“I want everything you give, Calder Wolfe. Because there is and will only ever be you and me.”

Here is some of what to expect: incredible highs, carpet sweeping lows, breath wheezing shock, twists, turns, ‘Oh, no, she didn’t,’ and of course, tears. This book had it all. I fully did not expect to cry, but low and behold, I did. Sinning Like Hell was so beautifully written that the love Calder and Sutton share is transcendent. There are no other words to describe it.

Reading this book has reaffirmed my love for Calder. He was written so well that he wasn’t a character to me. He was a real-life person that you could feel had stepped off the pages and right into your living room.

I stand by my review for Just Like Heaven and my description of Calder.

“Calder…tough, bada@@, sensitive, alpha, and loyal. He is the new gold standard in leading men.”

What to say about Sutton without giving it away? Hmmm… Sutton is a breath of fresh air. As a caterpillar metamorphosizes into a beautiful butterfly, so does Sutton. Her transformation is something to be proud of and I love that about her! These two were written in the stars and nothing was going to stand in their way!!

I love you forever. Until we’re dust and bones and even after that.”

In Silence She Screams (Midnight Mayhem #3) by Amo Jones–Review

Whoa. I suffered a severe book hangover. I needed a minute to process what I read and explore I how I felt. I admit that I am owned heart, body and soul to these characters and their worlds. I am in love and want more!

Oh my word, Lilith, Kyrin, and Eli, really know how to make a girl blush! The melding of Patience, Midnight Mayhem, and The Kings is fluid and the dynamic between these three is out of this world. The charismatic and panty dropping nature that is Eli was still prominent from his time with The Kings. Kyrin, um, hello yes please, I will take him to go! Thank you! Kyrin is ALPHA AF! He is possessive, growly, not short on confidence, and has masculinity oozing out of his pores. Lilith is the semi-new character in the world of mayhem. The life that Lilith brings to the table is deplorable and damaging. She is chaotic, tough, yet broken and emotionally detached, that is until she meets Eli and Kyrin.

I do not need to mention how incredible Amo’s writing is, but I will. Her ability to continue writing this all-consuming world and storyline is top notch and mind boggling. Just when you think you might have a grasp on the storyline, she flips the script. The twists, turns, and plain old bombs that she throws your way is absolute perfection. I truthfully cannot say enough about this.

What I will say is this is not everybody’s cup of tea. Did you catch I said three names in the beginning? That’s because this story involves a throuple. A perfect throuple, but still a throuple (I like saying that word😉). In Silence She Screams is dark, moody, it is enthralling and makes you forget where you are, but it is so delicious, like that last bite on devil’s food cake with extra frosting! Beware, be forewarned, but most definitely, be quick to read.

PS…that ending! Ho-lee, flipping cannoli, THAT ENDING!! This is the best Amo Jones that I have read!!!

Thank you, Amo Jones, thank you!!🖤

Can you offer five pieces of advice you would give to your younger self?

  • Believe in yourself. You are worthy.
  • Live in the moment because time goes by so fast.

  • Always wear sunscreen.
  • Lay off the Diet Coke🤪

Tell us five things that most people do not know about you.

  • I’m in a fantasy football league.
  • I love to sew. I loved designing my daughter’s Halloween costumes.
  • I love comedies. The stupider, the better.

What is your most favorite concert you have gone to? How heavily does music influence your writing?

I’ve been to a lot of great concerts, but my all-time favorite would be Pearl Jam. They are amazing live.

Music is everything to me and I constantly listen to music when I write or plot ideas. Songs and lyrics definitely give me inspiration and many times set a tone for the book.

First ten songs that show up in your shuffle.

  • “Hong Kong Garden”—Siouxsie and the Banshees
  • “Shape of Things to Come”—Audioslave
  • “Lullaby”—The Cure

  • “Jeremy’s Storm”—Tame Impala

Quote you live by?

I live My life a quarter mile at a time.

Does one of the main characters hold a special place in your heart? If so, why?

I love all my characters, but two of my faves are Vicente and Emilio Mendoza because they are pure gritty alphas who will do anything for their loved ones.

What is the key theme and/or message in the book?

We will survive and overcome, no matter the odds.

What do you hope your readers take away from this book?

Hope and you can succeed no matter the odds. And I hope they fall in love with the Mendoza’s.

What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

Judith McNaught, Johanna Lindsey and Charlaine Harris are the first authors that made me fall in love with this genre.

Favorite quote (does not matter the source)

“Life could be hard. Life could be brutal. Life could be unforgiving. But at the end of the day, life could be wonderful if you fought for what is important. “

—Primitivo 

What’s your favorite food?

Pizza. Of course.
