The Sculptor, a steamy, second chance, forbidden romance full of angsty tension and devastating secrets is LIVE and FREE with Kindle Unlimited! 

MY REVIEW

The Sculptor 

Kristy Marie

The Hands of the Potters, Bk 3

𝗕𝗹𝘂𝗿𝗯:

Dr. Duke Potter is no hero. 

Nor am I some damsel that needs saving—if that’s what we’re calling it. 

But that’s exactly what Duke thinks he did when he found me on the arm of a short-tempered congressman, arranged to be married. 

I should have told him the truth.

The real reason behind my involvement with the congressman. 

I shouldn’t have danced in his arms and reminisced about the time when we ran away together. 

But I most definitely shouldn’t have chugged that last drink and said, “I do,” marrying my childhood love. 

Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time Duke and I have caused a scandal. 

This time, though, we have more than just our reputations on the line. 

Duke will never let me go. 

There is no annulment in our future. 

Only the consequences of the devastating secret I’ve kept from our past.

The Sculptor is the next installment of the Potter brothers and features the youngest Potter brother, Duke. It is a full-length novel and features crossover characters from the novels, The Potter and The Refiner.

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. 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.

The Sculptor by Kristy Marie–Review

I just knew I was going to love The Sculptor, given it was about a Potter brother who also happened to be written by a unicorn author of mine. What I didn’t expect was how much this whole family would steal my heart. Duke and Ramsey not only tore my heart apart, but Kristy Marie eviscerated it one keystroke at a time.

Duke and Ramsey were a little more than childhood sweethearts, they were soulmates, even at the tender age of 18. They had that once-in-a-lifetime, never going to find another, epically strong first love—the kind of love a person could only wish for. Unfortunately, circumstances tore them apart, only to be reunited years later.

What comes next is the whole gamut of emotions. This emotional roller coaster had me fully invested from laughter, tears, immense tears, anger, a couple of snorts, hope, and more. Kristy Marie has some amazing books, but with this series, she has elevated her game, yet again. I am so excited and ready for the last book of this series!

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.

No Place Like Home by C. Lymari–Review

So, let’s see how many fingers you can put down with this review.

  1. Have been waiting very patiently for Quincy Hardwell’s story?
  2. Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong anywhere? Just like Jessamine.
  3. Have you ever had to take on too much responsibility and deal with it?
  4. Did you ever have a secret crush? Were you able to talk to your secret crush about it?
  5. Lastly, have you ever encountered a lion and lived to talk about it? Do not worry, Simba is all ‘fluff’ and no bite.

Quincy and Jess’ story was sheer perfection. The trials and tribulations that each had to go through in their lives was heartbreaking. I absolutely adored Q. He was the ‘it’ guy in high school but was able to penetrate Jessamine’s walls. Meanwhile, Jess had a life that no teenager should have to deal with, making her the invisible outcast. My heart broke for her.

No Place Like Home had me invested and emotional. I was laughing and in the next breath crying and in shock. Ms. Lymari has an innate ability to merge different writing styles. Her emotionally intense and shocking moments sprinkled with dark elements is *chef’s kiss*. So, grab a tissue, your favorite comforting drink, and expect to stay up awhile, because you too will get sucked into everything that is No Place Like Home.

Blame it on the Vodka by Fiona Cole–New Release/Review

Blame it on the Vodka by Fiona Cole

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This review is hard for me to write. While I loved the concept of the book and most importantly, I LOVE Fiona Cole, I had a hard time connecting with the characters/parts of the story. This may be, because I didn’t read the first books in the series, but I am not sure.
Austin and Rae are best friends who met in college. Now, years later, they are still best friends, but one side is wishing for more, while the other has a steadfast, self-imposed promise of NEVER marrying. Fast forward to being in Vegas for a friend’s wedding and apparently their own. What happens next?
I loved Austin. He fought for what he wanted and was determined to make things work. Rae on the other hand just did not connect with me. Due to situations in her past, it made it almost impossible for her to get over it.
Despite all this, the friends to lovers, secret marriage storyline, and ‘what happens in Vegas, doesn’t always stay in Vegas’ was delightful.
