Not A Player by R.C. Stephens–Cover Reveal

R.C. Stephens has revealed the cover for Not A Player!

Releasing February 22, 2023

Liliana 
 
Hooking up with an annoyingly handsome stranger on vacation isn’t the best idea, but I could use a little bit of careless fun before my fresh start. 
 
We said no last names, no strings. With law school on the line, it’s all I can offer. I just don’t expect everything to feel so easy— or so right. Too bad I’ll never see him again.
 
Little did I know that hockey star Logan Russo is also attending Westfall U. Now I can’t escape him… or his sexy silver eyes. 
 
He may not be a player… but he’s still off-limits. 
 
Logan 
 
My entire life has been focused on my hockey career. All work— no play. Zero distractions, with no exceptions. Until I sit next to Liliana on a flight to paradise.
 
Her walls are up, and I can respect that, relate even. But I’ll tear them down, one by one, if that’s what it takes for her to let me in.
 
Our tropical fling only left me wanting more. I can’t stop myself from fantasizing about the guarded beauty falling apart in my arms. Now I’m breaking the rules to play by hers. 
 
Because Liliana Ramirez isn’t just my team’s PR person, she’s my coach’s daughter.

Thorne Princess by LJ Shen–Review

 

What happens when you take one brat and one close protection officer? You end up with Hallie Thorne and Ransom Lockwood. An enemies to lovers, alpha bodyguard, grumpy/sunshine, and of course, touch her and die book. LJ Shen writes these complicated characters so well that it’s hard not to feel the burn from their undeniable chemistry.
Hallie ‘The Brat’ Thorne has gotten herself into a pickle, courtesy of an accidental nip slip. Her family has had enough and hired Random, aka Ransom. Ransom himself is thoroughly thrilled to be babysitting a Hollywood princess and just wants this assignment to end.
Despite her wardrobe malfunctions, Hallie is a very misunderstood twenty-one-year-old woman. Her exterior is tough as nails, but her inside is very different and holds a lot of secrets.
Random is a tough nut to crack, but what happens when you’re with someone 24/7? These walls start to come down and secrets, such as Random’s little kink, start spilling.
Now, I will say that there are TW at the beginning of the book. Read them and decide how you want to proceed.

Blurb:

My name is Rev.

I like long walks on the beach.

A neat scotch.

And I like stealing from rich losers who have no idea the town’s Big Bad Wolf screwed their wives six ways to Sunday.

Such a scandal, indeed.

I have one end goal—to get out of this town.

I’m a loner. And that’s by choice.

People aren’t really my thing. That is…until I meet her. The little firecracker who sets more than my soul on fire.

No one has ever stuck around.

But Darcie is different. She seems to be as broken as me, and when our worlds collide, nothing but trouble looms.

Watch out, baby…down the rabbit hole we go.

Crybaby by Monica James and Michelle Lancaster

Whoa!! I have fallen down the rabbit hole and am still shooketh!! From the get-go, there is a scene with ‘trigger warning’ written all over it and yet it somehow pulled me in deeper throughout the pages.

Monica and Michelle certainly did not hold back on their writing. This book is dark, gritty, straight in your face with no chance of hiding, yet there was something internally that I found myself silently rooting and squealing the main characters on. It felt wrong. It made me question myself, but most of all, it made me wonder where Monica has been hiding this side of her writing? (I believe I should thank Michelle for that)!

Crybaby is not an easy read. There are topics discussed and executed creating a strong visceral reaction and despite some topics that are mentioned, I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t walk away and wondered what would happen next. I HAD TO keep reading.

I found myself with absolutely zero in common with these protagonists, but I was definitely drinking the Kool-Aid and couldn’t turn my back on them and walk away. Rev and Darcie (aka…Bonnie and Clyde, Ken and Barbie, or the Lonely-Hearts killers) have had unfathomable things happen to them. You realize that you can only push someone so far before they break, well we got to read about that side after the break. All I have to say is, Monica and Michelle MUST keep writing together! Is it too early ladies to ask for more??😉😁

Monica and Michelle are the newest power duo, and their writing style is wicked, dark, imperfect, and not for those faint of heart, but a must-read! (Michelle and Monica do you hear it now? (must have more, Must Have More, MUST HAVE MORE)!! 

“I’ll never see her as a victim. Rather, I see her as the victor. She survived, but the ones who broke her won’t.” 

Aveke by Tijan–Review

Ok, I need to confess something. I have read Aveke twice and loved it more than the first time. It is a 42,000-word novella, which is on the longer side, but it is still a super quick read, besides, I NEEDED more of Zeke and Ava. They are that good!

Ava and Zeke are two characters within the world of Fallen Crest/Rosseau but can be read as standalone. One thing that Tijan did, which I LOVED, was the pop-up of characters from within this massive universe. Zeke and Ava’s world made my heart so happy because I never want to say goodbye to this universe.

I may be the only one, but I found myself shedding some tears at the end. Aveke was just so beautiful. Ava is the high school wallflower who thought she was always unseen. Zeke is the high school bully who reformed himself over the years but is still lonely. Was Zeke a complete and utter jerk in high school? Yes. Did Ava think she was a nobody, did not have friends, and was unnoticeable? Yes. Yet somehow these two dandelions find each other.

“You can be the yellow dandelions, my sunshine in a flower, and I’ll be the fuzzy ones.
See. We’re not so different. We’re perfect for each other. We’re the same flower.”
