Ruthless Knight by A. Jade–Review

Reading Cruel Prince, I thought I was done for. I fell hardcore for the Royal Hearts family, including Cole Covington. The tortured, black hearted twin with nothing but malice in him. I couldn’t wait to dig into his book to see what made him tick.

Ruthless Knight did not disappoint. Within her 100 chapters, A. Jade wrote a web of feelings, emotions, storylines, and flashbacks to make a grown woman cry. I couldn’t help but feel my own heart breaking while reading about Cole and Sawyer.

Sawyer Church, the Bible thumper at RHA. Despite trying to be a nobody and blend into the walls, you couldn’t help but notice her. She also is tortured, unloved, unwanted, and compared to her ‘perfect’ sister. For some reason, she can see through Cole to the good that is hidden deep down. This, of course, unsettles Cole, so he does what most teenagers would, he picks on her.

When all is said and done and the book is completed, this was a beautiful story of acceptance, love, and forgiveness. However, to get to ‘The End’, Ms. Jade took us through some tough topics and situations that will leave you tearing up for days. It’s hard not to love all characters written within this book. They are family. One of these family members that I am anxious to read about is Bianca. I want to know her story and what makes Baby Covington the spoiled, bitchy, and devious princess that she is!!

Blurb:
Jackson Thorn was my best friend and worst enemy, but that didn’t stop me from wanting him.

From first words to high school halls, our childhood years braided a bond that wove in a direction neither of us could predict or outgrow.

Forbidden became a word we ignored.
It wasn’t that we didn’t care.
It was that we cared too much.

We had it all planned out.
We thought we could make it.
We thought we’d been careful.
But all we managed to do was prolong the inevitable.
Our destruction.

Hearts and Thorns is a standalone full length new adult novel from bestselling author, Ella Fields.

Siren by Hazel Grace–Review

“You might want to keep your distance, Blood,”…’It’s not a smart idea for you to get too close to me.”

Siren is a fantastic, enchanting and dark re-telling of The Little Mermaid. Take everything you know about Ariel and chuck it out the window. Davina, she is the star of this book, along with her sisters, Dagen, and Tobias. I am addicted and want more!!!

There were so many incredible moments in this book. The relationship and banter between Davina and the other Princesses of Lacuna is so funny and a completely sister thing to do. The other characters are written so well, they pop off the screen and it’s easy to visualize what is happening as you read it.

Hazel Grace continues to surprise me with her books. She makes me long for more and I don’t know how she does it, but she does. She has made me laugh, cry, flat out swoon, and had complete emotional annihilation. Yet, I still come back for more.

Pick up Siren and continue with the rest of the ‘Sinister Fairytale Collections’ series. You won’t be disappointed!!

Gabriel’s Promise by Sylvain Reynard–review

Professor Gabriel Emerson is akin to coming home. Imagine your favorite slippers, leggings or blanket, that feeling of contentment is one that washed over me as I started reading. I was enthralled and completely sucked into Gabriel and Julia’s previous books, specifically, books one and two.
Professor Emerson is my OG professor to kick off my love of Professor-Student genres. I loved seeing a different side of Gabriel, especially after the birth of their daughter, Clare. So attentive, loving and protective. Just what his girls need.
Now that Clare is in the picture, one would hope that Gabriel and Julia have an easy breezy future. Unfortunately, they are tested and must face challenges that will test them both. Ms. Reynard packed a full storyline with issues, enemies, and confrontations between beginning and end. Some may have been true storyline issues, while others felt like ‘fluff’ and didn’t really need to be there.
Despite all this, Sylvain’s writing is wonderful. If you have read the previous books, pick this up on January 7th and see what the Emerson’s are up too!

Hearts and Thorns by Ella Fields–Review

4 ‘Bug and Toad’ Stars

Holy, Ella Fields!! I am a sucker and completely addicted to stepbrother romances, so naturally I thought Hearts and Thorns would be right up my alley.  Well, freaking A, it was a stepbrother romance, but it was so much more. It’s the ‘more’ that you have to worry about with Ella Fields books.

When I hear Ella has a new book coming out, I’m all excited and can’t wait. What my conscious seems to forget is that Ella is sweet and writes amazing books, but those books will chew you up, grind your feelings down in a blender, and spit you out without a second thought. This leaves you a jumbled mess trying to catch a breath while laying crumpled on the floor. Glutton for punishment, party of 1? 🙋🏻‍♀️

Jackson and Willa Thorn were raised as siblings, despite the fact they weren’t blood related. They were everything to each other, as well as best friends. This type of relationship wasn’t a problem until they grew older and feelings/dynamics started to change. This eliciting a forbidden, taboo, and dirty secret relationship.

Despite all this, I couldn’t look away. I HAD to keep reading. I didn’t care if I was going to be shocked, let down, or completely and utterly pulverized. I HAD to read about Willa and Jackson! I needed to know more and see how they would navigate this relationship in a world that isn’t ready for the norm of stepsibling’s romance being ok.

So, be prepared. Grab your tissues, drink of choice, maybe some chocolate and get ready for a gut-wrenching, soul crunching and a heartbreaking read.

 

 

Madness by Kailee Reese Samuels–Review

Madness is one thing that you will feel while reading this book. I have never read a book of Kailee’s before and this was one heck of an initiation. I finished a couple days ago and I’m still trying to make sense of my feelings, this book, and this author. Kailee is either a genius at writing about madness so you can’t follow along or a MASTER at evoking more than feelings while reading a book and making you think you are mad as well.

Most people know the story of Alice in Wonderland and the curious, daydreaming girl who is often giving herself advice. Well, I hate to say that Madness is more than an adult version of this. Kailee’s version is a psychological trip that has themes of fantasy, dystopia, and dark, dark romance. This is NOT you’re everyday tale of Alice in Wonderland. Going back to Kailee’s writing, I sat for a few days, seriously wondering if I was going mad. To me, it didn’t make sense. It was only while reading the ending that the lightbulbs seemed to go on. Now, is that scattered writing or phenomenal storytelling? Honesty here, I think it was genius writing by Kailee Reese Samuels. I am not a dystopian reader, so this part of the story hung me up a bit, so along with confusion, I felt that I was feeling what Lys was going through.

The only knock I have on Madness is that it was a little hard to follow along. Due to her writing style, it felt a little disconnected and I had to go back and re-read sections which affected the flow of the overall book.

If you like dark (and I mean super dark) romance reads, Madness is one that you should take a chance on. Kailee Reese Samuels wrote one heck of a head scratcher to which she ties it up in a nice little bow at the end.

Stolen Lies by K Webster–review

Holy molasses, reindeer kicking, egg nog stealing and Christmas present ripping conclusion. Now Stolen Lies is how you end a series.

There is so much to say about it, but it would be ruining the surprise for you guys. Let me put it this way. Talia becomes who she needs to be to stand by her man. Kostas becomes so much more and it’s drool-worthy. The action is never ending. Just when you think you’ll be able to catch your breath, something else is happening and you’re taken on that roller coaster ride yet again. It is full of revenge, violence, bloodshed, lies, deception, and betrayal.

Stolen Lies flowed well, and the storyline was a continuous momentum builder, just like a train building up speed. I highly recommend reading this duet, however, if you’re a little squeamish, beware. K Webster and Nikki Ash have hit this one out of the park.
