Creole Kingpin by Meghan March–Review

So, it’s been a little bit of a hot minute since I read a Meghan March book and all I have to say is, ‘why did it take me so long to read another one of her books?’ I was intrigued and shook by all that was happening in this book. I was sucked in and engrossed from beginning to end.

Creole Kingpin is set in good ole NOLA. The sights and sounds that describe within brought me right back to my time in New Orleans. Psst…Meghan, thanks for the memories! 😉😉 Our main characters are, Magnolia and Moses. To say these two had a past is a wee bit of an understatement. It may not have been long in time frame but it was intense.

“A beautiful woman who plays chess like a master. I never guessed that’d be so damn sexy or my greatest weakness.”

Fast forward fifteen years and these once former pals are meeting again. Him intentionally, her unintentionally and ready to clean out the trash and memories.
Magnolia is intense, fierce, tough, determined, gorgeous and strongly independent. She was simply power poured into a pencil skirt and a stunning exterior. Magnolia has not had an easy life, but everything she did, she did for a greater purpose. Magnolia is one of my favorite heroines that I’ve read in a while. I may have a wee lady boner for her.

“Magnolia Marie Maison. No Man owns me. No man controls me.”

Moses is this cool guy who appears to be very laid back as if nothing will touch him, until he has fully reunited with Magnolia. He is also very determined and exudes this intense cool cat exterior. Behind closed doors or with his friends, he breaks character a little bit. Once you read about these two together it’s clear that they are undeniably made for each other, but Mags is more tentative.

“That’s what I want, Moby. I want a partner. I want someone to stand by me while we weather the storms. Because my life seems to be filled with fucking storms.”

Creole Kingpin is epic. It has a little bit of everything from mystery, drama, romance and sexy! I was full on sucked in from the beginning. It was intoxicating, intense, suspenseful and mysterious. Meghan’s writing was fabulous and had every component one looks for in a book. The characters are will written, they are intense and show growth from beginning to end and her storyline and plot was spot on. I am so excited for book two, because that cliffhanger, girl had me reeling and wanting more!!

For now??

In Fury Lies Mischief by Amo Jones–Review

HO-LY CRAP!!!! Not to quote Alicia Key’s here, but ‘this girl is on fire’!! She has slayed me yet again with an all-consuming and gritty work of art! Time has come to write another review for an Amo Jones book and I genuinely say after each book, ‘I don’t know how she can top herself’. Ladies and gentlemen let me introduce you to the world of Mayhem and The Brothers of Kiznitch. In Peace Lies Havoc we were introduced to the brothers, King, Killian, Keaton and Kyrin, with King and Dove being center stage.

In Fury Lies Mayhem is Killian’s book with Saskia and straight up and honest here, HER BEST BOOK YET!! It’s been a few days since I finished, and I CAN’T GET KILLIAN AND SASKIA OUT OF MY HEAD!! Major book hangover!! I have said this before, and I’m going to say this again. Amo creates worlds with such clarity, from the overall generalized setting, i.e. location, down to the description of a tiny button on a pair of pants. It is impossible to not imagine what she is talking about. Her plotlines and storylines are ALWAYS on point, character descriptions are never lacking, and they always show growth from beginning to end.
I’m sure I’m not going to be the only one that says this, but Killian, good God, Killian was killing it. He’s completely and utterly addictive. You can NEVER have enough of him. He has turned into my favorite Hero that Amo has ever written. He’s everything a member of Mayhem should be. He’s smoking hot, wicked, determined, mischievous, a badass and a straight up trickster. He has the face and the body to get a person to do whatever they want, even without his special ‘powers’ of telekinesis, hypnosis and coercive persuasion. As much as I loved him in the beginning, by the end, that love had deepened, simply because we got to see different aspects of his character that are not readily seen.

“I’ll f*cking wait for you for as long as I need to, because time doesn’t tick unless you’re in my arms.

Saskia, mmm, girl, she is a match waiting to go up in flames. If gasoline was Kill and Sass is the match, they are one wickedly combustive inferno. She is perfectly ‘match’ed for Killian. She not only stands up to him and fights him, but she deviously plays the Trickster with his games. Killian has never met someone like her.

“There’s sexy, beautiful, hot, banging, and then there’s Saskia, whose beauty trumps all the mundane adjectives that the Oxford Dictionary can generate.”

In Fury Lies Mischief has consumed me and left me in a cyclone of emotions. I adored seeing this rough and hardened couple come together and show us all sides to their relationship and individual character. Amo is an epically gifted author/writer and I feel blessed to be able to read her books. Due to her incredible writing skills, I can still feel Mayhem swirling through me. Amo Jones, you are the Queen and I humbly bow down at your feet, screaming ‘I’m not worthy, I’m not worthy’.

Pretty Reckless by LJ Shen–Cover Reveal

PR - CR banner.jpg

Pretty Reckless, the first standalone in the highly anticipated All Saints High series from USA Today bestselling author L.J. Shen, is coming April 29th and we have the gasp-worthy cover!

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM.jpg

We were supposed to be best friends

But turned out to be worst enemies…

Penn

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

I took her first kiss.

She took the only thing I loved.

I was poor.

She was rich.

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

Daria

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

Now? Now he is making me pay.

About LJ Shen:

L.J. Shen is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.

Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets people’s’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.

She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

Blurb:

Breck

My name is Brecklyn Brannon, and I’m not who I claim to be.

A year ago, I packed up my promising life in the city for a man I saw only once.

Accepting a temporary job with Cade and four blazing hot veterans should have been my way in.

Except, Cade acts like he would rather be tortured than speak to me.

He can resist all he wants, but I made a promise that I intend to keep.

Even if it costs me everything.

Cade

I’ve watched her for over a year.

There’s something about her that seems familiar… but now that she’s living here for two weeks, I could care less what it is.

I just want her gone.

Breck is temptation personified, and some lines can’t be crossed.

I’m Major Cade Jameson, and I made a promise, too.

One that I can’t break.

No matter how hard it gets.

★★NOW AVAILABLE★★
Free with Kindle Unlimited!

About the Author:

A self-proclaimed reader enthusiast, Kristy started her writing journey back in 2009, reading and writing when her daughter was napping. Establishing her place in Corporate America (because something had to pay the bills), writing became her dirty, late-night secret.

After eight long years, she released her debut novel, Commander in Briefs. It was a long road, but she can honestly say, the road less traveled had the most beautiful sights.

The only thing Kristy Marie loves as much as reading and writing is sports! Especially those that require muscles and a nice ass. Her favorite is, and always will be, baseball. She’s such a fan, that she even married her small town’s high school’s centerfielder where they still live with their three badass kids.

Commander in Briefs is her first series but definitely not her last.

Hail to the king, and watch him reign, this game was somewhat fun, until the finale came…

Now we’re here, with carnage and despair, and the only questions left to answer, are the ones that do not appear…

A king loses a war, and a swan sheds her wings, chaos collides with peace, as the crows begin to sing…

Enter if you dare, because I swear the end is near, but nothing is as it seems, and everything is so bare.

So what the f*ck is going on at Riverside,
I think, I think… everyone is about to die…
