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.

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.”

Aveke by Tijan–New Release

Aveke by Tijan is now live! 

I watched him in high school. Knew his reputation. Knew he was wealthy, privileged, and mean.
He ran the show back then, a partier and a player.
Then he came back from college, back to the town I never left. He’s different now.
He comes into the bar, and I know his routine.
I know which stool he’ll pick.
I know his favorite drink. I know which sports team he’ll want on the television screen.
And I watch as he gets hit on.
Sometimes he leaves the bar with a woman. Sometimes he doesn’t.
But I’m always there, tending to his drinks. He gives me a smile and a polite nod back.
Then one night, after a long appraising stare, he asked, “Ava, why are you single?”
I leaned in, told him a lie, knowing the truth.
What I didn’t know was that my world was about to shatter after that night.

Something else I didn’t know: would the man I watched all those years help put my heart back together… or smash it into pieces?

** A 42k novella written as a standalone from two characters in the Fallen Crest/Roussou universe.
