Dreams of 18 by Saffron Kent–Review

Age gap…check, Forbidden…check. Throw in a head nod to Beauty and the Beast and yep, I’m in. I am a sucker for the taboo situations and couldn’t wait to read this one.
Some may say that an eighteen-year-old and a thirty+ year-old isn’t realistic, but this is a work of fiction and needs to be read as such. (On the flip side, I can say that I have an age gap situation in my family, not me, and that it can work). Saffron Kent was masterful at intertwining the Beauty and the Beast element, a sweet crush/romance of two lonely souls with an over the top reaction to a kiss.

Our heroine, Violet, is truly a shrinking Violet. She is the misfit of the family and doesn’t know how incredible she is. There is one person that she identifies with at first sight, Graham, aka. Mr. Edwards. Yes, he is insanely good looking, but for her it is more than that.

Graham, on the other hand, has noticed Violet’s true beauty, but knows that he shouldn’t be feeling some of the things for her that he is. Mr. Edwards is a prickly, callous and harsh man who coaches the local high school football team. He is this larger than life human being with a known personality that makes everyone afraid of him. His nickname is, ‘The Beast’ and lord, help me, but I love this Beast.

Like the movie, Beauty and the Beast, Violet and Graham shouldn’t go together. She should be afraid of his personality, but that’s not the case. Violet is unwavering in her determination to break down this formidable man. It was lovely to see that separately these two were floundering, but together, they were strong and make each one better.

“’Don’t waste your time on those f@ckers who don’t know what you are.’
‘And what am I?’
’Something made of moon and magic.’”

Falcon by Michelle Heard–Review

When I started to see all the teasers and blurbs, I thought Trinity Academy would be following the newest trend, high school/college bully romance with a touch of Reverse Harem. Interestingly enough, Ms. Heard took Falcon in a different direction and I can’t say that I’m all that upset over it.

Now, don’t get me wrong, HS/College, bully romance, reverse harem, and slightly dark is my jam. So, I am thoroughly enjoying the trend now. With that said, I was slightly let down, because I was used to so much drama, but I can now correct myself in saying that while it wasn’t overly dramatic, it was a chock-full storyline with issues, character growth and finding oneself, which is just as good.

One thing I absolutely adored, was the camaraderie of Falcon, Lake and Mason. They were so tight, that they formed their own little family. In this case, the family you choose is stronger than blood. Some of the sacrifices they made for each other, as well as, having another’s back even if it didn’t involve them, was spectacular.

Falcon was not a story, just about Falcon, but included snippets of what we could expect in Mason and Lake’s stories. Their personalities jumped of the page and I can’t wait to read about each one.

Besides, the above misconception, I also thought I would be reading all about greed, wealth, and the power that comes with it. That wasn’t the full focus. Were these guys obscenely wealthy? Um, yep. Were there two different aspects of power (parental generation vs. the boys)? Heck yeah, but Michelle Heard somehow made it more than the superficial stuff. She dug deep and that’s when we got to see hopes, dreams, and, personalities.

Layla. I LOVED Layla! Her mother is the PA to Falcon’s father and gets a spot in Trinity Academy where she’s a freshman. She is the opposite of any of her peers and is afraid that her ‘secret’ will come out. Layla is spunky, feisty, unafraid to curb her tongue around these upper crust students. She gives as good as she gets. She develops a strong friendship with Kingsley Hunt and together they are two peas in a pod.

The other thing for me to make it a 4⭐read, is the pace at which some of the ‘drama/issues’ are resolved. I will say, Falcon, was a quick read and am not sure if that had something to do with it. Did this truly effect my experience while reading this book? Not really, I just couldn’t make it a 5⭐, because of it.

I, truly, enjoyed this read and am looking forward to reading Mason’s book. There’s something about a brooding, bitter guy.

Crew Princess by Tijan–Review

Let me start this my saying that I love Tijan. She has so many powerful and meaningful books, that when I see she has a new one coming out, I’m like, ‘yes please’. However, it pains me to say this, but I was a little disappointed in Crew Princess. It seemed to fall a little flat compared to the rest of the series, but I’m not exactly sure why.

Jordan, Zellman, Cross, and Bren are still tight as ever in their Wolf Crew and have matured and grown over the course of the book. Bren is in a quandary as she tries to figure out what she’s going to do after graduation, if she makes it that far. The rest of the crew already have plans, but she doesn’t know where this leaves her. Cross and her are as adorable as ever. Would you call Cross adorable? 😏😉

‘Your first loyalty is to the crew, but mine is to you.’

As mentioned previously, the Wolf Crow is tight. They are loyal to the fullest, will protect each other with their lives, and are their own family unit. I loved the ‘love’ these four had for each other and never once did they question where their loyalty laid or what they should do in any given scenario. These guys are going to need it with the war that is headed their way.

There is plenty of action throughout with multiple Crew’s involved. Roussou has had to take in students from other high schools, and since then the crews have been scrambling to regain and dominate their turf.

“We were the Wolf Crew, the smallest crew in the Roussou crew system, but also the most dangerous one.”

Let’s talk about Cross for a second. Cross (insert sigh) is still the alpha leader of the crew. Dare I say this, but his relationship with Bren is quite refreshing. There aren’t many ‘PDA’ moments in this book, but what they do share is very sweet. You can really feel the love between these two. Despite being in high school, he is a Hero that one could only hope for.

‘We caught the end of one girl telling her friend to just do it, “break the a@@ seal.” Cross shot me a grin over his shoulder. I shook my head. Not solid advice, on any day.’

I mean, come on. All it took was one glance over his shoulder and he had Bren had their own non-communicative conversation. That’s why I love their relationship.

I’m slightly confused on Bren. I love her, because she is a super strong heroine, but in CP we got to see a different side of her. With the realization that things are moving and changing, she becomes more emotional which is a contrast from her hard, dark persona. I feel like this was to humanize her a little bit to show her growth and change. I’m just used to seeing her a certain way and it felt unnatural. What I absolutely adored more than anything though was her interaction with Harrison. This completely felt natural and truly showed that she was changing and growing.

Despite all this, I am still a huge Tijan fan. Will I still read and buy her books? Heck yeah, because I’m curious to see what she has in store for us is Crew Love (Wolf Crew #3).

Something Like Hate by Claudia Burgoa–Review

Miller and Claire were a joy to read. Claudia brought us something lighthearted and fun, but still had emotional development throughout the book. Neither necessarily believed in love and romance, but sometimes you find what you’re looking for when you’re not really looking.

‘The only one holding me in one piece is Miller Archer, and I’m not sure how I’ll survive the rest of my life without him.’

Claire is a slave to her job. She loves what she does, but is always being disturbed by her boss, Darth Vader (Devon Evans) and ultimately by his boss, Emperor Palpatine (Miller Archer). Claire is on her way to a well-deserved vacation, where she runs into Miller. Miller is off to his sister’s destination wedding when he finds out his ‘plus one’ has cancelled. If he doesn’t want to be set up by his mother, he needs to bring a date. By sheer fate, he bumps into Claire Solis, his number one employee. World meet Miller’s plus one, Claire, only through a little bribery.

‘”So, it’s just for now, nothing serious?” she finally asks. “It’ll be casual, brief, and yet unforgettable,” I promise and seal it with another kiss.’

Things look like they are going swimmingly for this (fake) new couple, but be careful, because not all things are meant to last. Things begin to fall apart for them, both personally and professionally. Fast forward a couple years and Miller has a rough road in front of him. Claire is it, but he’s got a lot to prove.

Claire and Miller are incredible leads. Claire she’s feisty and a strong-willed person, while Miller is an Alpha, but soon learns that you catch more bees with honey than with vinegar. It’s nice to see a man that is alpha fall to his knees for ‘the girl’.
Paris Proposal - Engaged GIF - Engaged ParisProposal Proposal GIFs
Something Like Hate is a wonderful read. You will feel a tug on the heartstrings and get a little emotional as well.

‘Miller Archer and I were like two stars who collided one night. We merged together, burnt like a thousand suns, and instead of becoming a new star; we collapsed into a black hole.’

Excerpt

As he
waited for his breathing to calm, I took a moment to marvel in the bulk of the
man lying on top of me. My fingers slid across golden skin colored with a
collage of intricate pictures, symbols and words. My palm curved around strong
deltoid muscles that were well-rounded and powerful. He was big. Strong.
Lethal. And probably not interested in
being the father of my baby.
The thought
made me shift uneasily beneath him. I had to get out of there. I needed to be
alone to collect my thoughts and find my senses. I wiggled and Caleb rolled off
me. I thought he would let me go but he didn’t. Instead he turned my face
towards him and kissed me hard on the mouth.
But I was
leaving. I sat up and began looking for my panties on the floor. Finding them
wedged under the corner of the bed, I slipped them on and began hunting for my
skirt.
“Where are
you going?” He asked.
“I have to
go.”
“Why are
you always running away from me?” He said, an amused sparkle in his eyes. “Will
I see you again?”
I paused
and looked at him over my shoulder. “Do you want to?”
He grinned
and I was momentarily taken back by how beautiful it was.
How
beautiful he was.
“Hell
darlin’, I don’t want you to leave.”
I resumed
looking for my skirt. “I have to leave. I have things to do.”
I found my
skirt in a tangle with my shirt at the foot of the bed. 
“At least
let me give you a ride home.” He sat up.
“Its fine. I
can call a cab.” I stood up and slipped my shirt on.
“I’m not
letting you take a cab.”
“Really its
fine.”
He climbed
off the bed, unfazed by his nakedness, and began looking for his boxer shorts.
I paused to drink in the fine display of his muscular body and his still
swollen manhood swinging between his powerful thighs. It was obvious he took
very good care of his body.
He slipped
on his jeans and by the time I had buttoned my blouse and found my phone and
shoes, he was fully dressed and securing his wallet chain to his jeans.
“Ready?” He
asked.
There was
no point arguing.
As he
opened the bedroom door, I mentally braced myself. I wasn’t looking forward to
the walk of shame through the clubhouse. But the hallway was quiet and the
clubhouse was still. Sometime in the night the music had stopped and the party
had wound down.
As soon as
I entered the bar, the stench of last nights partying hit me like a bat to the
face and I had to hold my breath.  The
bar was littered with snoring bikers and the odd club girl asleep where they
had passed out. Bottles lay scattered and spilled everywhere. Stale booze and
body odor were ripe in the air. Caleb took my hand and led me through the mess,
stepping over discarded bottles and sleeping bodies. Musty smoke glittered in
the dusty rays of sunlight bursting into the room from a window above the
jukebox.
Across the
room, an older biker was quietly having sex with a large, partially dressed
woman up against the pool table. His jeans were down around his ankles and his
eyes were closed as he lazily rocked into her. The slap, slap of her large
wobbly boobs against the pool table broke the stillness of the morning.
Further
away, a naked woman lay slumped at the base of a stripper pole with everything
open and on display. She hugged a half-spilled bourbon bottle and snored
loudly. As we passed by her, Caleb shook his head and grabbed a discarded shirt
from a nearby chair to cover her.
“Is she
alright?” I whispered.
“Yeah,
that’s Candy. It’s not the first time she’s passed out there and it won’t be
the last.”
  I glanced around me. This place. These
people. This was Caleb’s world. And it reeked of bad choices. Nausea roiled in
the pit of my stomach and I barely made it outside in time before losing the
contents of my stomach.
“Jesus, are
you okay?” Caleb asked, coming up behind me.
I gestured
for him to give me a moment as another wave of nausea washed over me and I
vomited again.
“You drink
too much?” he asked when I finally straightened and walked over to him. “I
don’t remember you being drunk.”
I shook my
head. “I didn’t drink a thing.”
He handed
me a helmet. “Are you okay to ride? Or do you need a minute?”
“I’ll be
okay.”
He led me
over to a row of motorcycles parked alongside the clubhouse. His was a big
black beast with lots of chrome gleaming in the early morning light.
Before he
climbed on, he touched my hand. “Are you sure you’re ok?”
I smiled
brightly but it was fake because I felt weird. Out of place. I didn’t belong
there.
“Yes. I’m
fine.” I said, very aware that I needed to get out of there. I did up my helmet
and climbed onto the back of his bike. “Lets ride.”

Rapture by NN Britt–Review

To everybody that is questioning, ‘should I or shouldn’t I’ when it comes to reading this book, the answer is yes! Justice and Hazel will pull at your heart strings and take you along on a wild ride. Keep in mind, this NN Britt’s debut novel!! It’s almost hard to believe.

Hazel has suffered something so tragic that it’s almost hard to come back from. Pile on top of that, a husband who wants a divorce and has been waiting for her to sign the papers. An unhealthy vice has entered her life in the form of alcohol and a lot to numb the pain.
Booze Drinking GIF - Booze Drinking Alcohol GIFs

Justice is the cocky Rockstar. He seemed to have it all, but he is a broken man with a penchant for women. When it came to Hazel, he was different. He was caring, concerned, patient and understanding. Hazel isn’t his usual type, though. She’s pure, innocent, stubborn and has baggage that would’ve taken up half a train of train cars. Despite all this, Justice is intrigued.

It was beautiful to see these two morph into this ‘couple’, albeit originally assumed together by his paparazzi stalkers. Therefore, living in this fake relationship for a while. Neither are ready for a true relationship, but that relationship spark was lit back in the beginning. Their path together is not an easy one. There are mounds of grief, crappy exes, popularity, paparazzi and crazy fans.

Rapture was written extremely well. It may be a little on the longer side, but it was easy to get lost in the story. I personally enjoyed the fact that as ‘Jazel’ came to be, she didn’t shy away from the harder topics at hand, specifically Hazel’s drinking. Ms. Britt kept the plotline flowing with elements of grief, humor, chaos and hot, steamy passion. (*side note: whoa, they had some super sexy hot times! 🔥🔥🔥) I appreciate the difficulty that is present to write one complex character, but to be able to write two complex characters and do it well deserve a round of applause. 👏👏👏 Congratulations, NN Britt and welcome to the world of incredible books (remember debut novel)!

In my world, she was out to cause havoc on all our lives.

She’ll use the one thing I care most about to control me—force me into her Elite world, filled with sin, deceit, and power. And under her spell, I’ll lead a sinister brotherhood of seven at one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans.

My task is Meghan Thorne.

She’s too pure for me to touch, too good for me to ruin—and the only thing standing in my way to freedom.

The Elite Seven

7 AUTHORS.
7 STORIES.
7 DEADLY SINS.

Since 1942, The Elite Seven Society have created and guided influential leaders, molding the country into something better. This society was birthed by Malcolm Benedict, II who wanted more for Americans. More wealth. More influence. More power. Some leaders have the skills, but not the influence, and that simply wasn’t fair according to Mr. Benedict. He invested his own money and time to construct a society that bred the best of the best, year after year.

But to be the best, you must be ruthless.

Good leaders make sacrifices. Sometimes the sacrifices are hard, but the rewards are plentiful. Mr. Benedict made sure to indulge these leaders with their utmost desires. A devout Catholic himself, he designed a society that rewarded his leaders with the sins that were frowned upon. If they were giving up love and happiness and joy for the betterment of the country, they deserved something in its stead.

Pride, Envy, Wrath, Sloth, Greed, Gluttony, and Lust.

Choosing leaders for this society means that it takes intense focus. Only seven are to be selected, and the investments and time are showered upon the new seven chosen every four years. The predecessors of each group of seven choose people who fit the sin that will mold them into who they are needed to be in the future—what America needs them to be. This is after a detailed study of many potential candidates. The university’s acting dean behaves as a liaison for the society bringing the college applicants to the predecessors so that the selection may begin. The society members who are going out will bring forth a candidate that the society votes on and approves.

After they are chosen, the initiates are given a token and an invitation to initiation. The initiation will be a test to their character and ability to do what’s right for the betterment of the society. Once the initiates pass their test, they are discreetly branded with the mark of the society and are groomed through challenges during the course of their elite education to breed them into the influential people they were meant to be.

Once in The Elite Seven, there is no getting out. The money and power are their rewards. Should they choose to stray or break the rules, the society strips them of everything. Anything they once had will be removed. Opportunities will never arise. They will no longer have the support of the society. To this day, there have been no known occurrences of anyone from the society having to be banished. This elite group of people is what every young man and woman aspire to be a part of. While the group is a secret society, they are whispered about amongst the privileged folks in the country. Anyone who is anyone knows of the group and secretly hopes it’s their son or daughter who is selected, for good fortune is showered on the family for decades to come.

Lust: NOW LIVE

I was born with wealth, athletic ability, and looks that could melt the panties off a nun.
I had a clear path to success.
Until fate dealt me a cruel blow, leaving me empty and in need of purpose.
My only focus now is to become part of The Elite—a secret society in one of the most prestigious colleges in the world.
But everything comes at a price, and with The Elite, you have to earn your place.
Lucky for me, being sinful is in my DNA.
The only obstacle to full initiation is my task: seduce the un-seducible, the forbidden, and lure her with the sins of the flesh.
Easy for a man like me…in theory.
She started as my task, but what happens when the lines between lust and love blur, and the need for power rages war with the need for her?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.
This is my life, my chance, my legacy.

Envy: Releasing March 25th

It was temptation that broke the sinner.

People say I have everything.
They’re wrong.
I may have looks, money, and privilege, but I don’t have the one thing that really matters, the one thing I crave: a woman with eyes only for me.
I’m searching for my woman—one who will fall to her knees because I’m her king. She’ll wear the crown of my tarnished name, and long for me when I’m not near. And when I am close, she’ll be naked across my lap, feeling the sting of my palm across her milky skin.
You could say I’m a sinner because I’d do anything to have the perfect woman—compliant to my every need and whim—and I’m envious of every couple who walks around naive to the luxury they have.

That’s why I joined The Elite, the most prestigious brotherhood in the south.
It’s the one place that will give me what I cannot have.
Only…the task assigned to me is too much for my jealous eyes.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak…they’re for The Elite.
Those who envy have no peace.
My name is Sabastian Westbrook.
I am Envy.

ENVY by M.N Forgy

 

Greed: Releasing April 8th

I was born into a world of darkness—one that never touched me when I was around my brother, Mason Blackwell. Leader of The Elite Seven. The thing about darkness, though, is it’s persistent. Eventually, it pushes itself into my life, penetrating my soul and leaving its stench latched to every vein, rooted inside every bone, and sunken into every pore. I thought I reached rock bottom when I fell in love with my brother’s best friend. My very own brand of drug with no comedown. My own nightmare I never woke from. But I was wrong. So very wrong. When I returned to New Orleans, I arrived as a shell of the girl they once knew. Put on a smile. Be the sweet innocent girl they remember.

I’m Evie Blackwell, hostage to my demons. Can the damned be saved?

I’ve done some unforgivable acts in my years, but I never asked for forgiveness. Nothing beats the feeling of wrapping my hand around someone’s throat and watching as their life bleeds down their cheeks. She was everything I should have stayed away from. The first night I saw her, I knew I was doomed—a slave to the girl with the pretty eyes and soft smile. The girl who turned out to be my best friend’s baby sister. I couldn’t stay away. I had to be near her, even if it meant ruining her in the process. I wanted to wreck her, so I could piece her back together—a puzzle only I knew how to solve.

I’m Micah Dixon.
Greed.
I come for everything and get everything I come for—and I want all of her. But she’s changed, and so have I.
I’m much, much worse now…

GREED By Amo Jones

 

Gluttony: Releasing April 22nd

My life has been served to me on a gold platter to be devoured by my silver spoon.

Money, money, and more money. It’s the backbone of the Goddard name. I’m the only son, so it’s all mine for the taking.

But sometimes money isn’t enough. I always want more, yet nothing seems to satisfy me.

My father has made sure I become a part of The Elite Seven. Where most candidates are chosen, I was given my place. Everything comes at a price, though. Luckily, I can afford any price—no one has more money than God.

The Elite Seven have their initiations. My assignment is personal and beneath me: steal a car and send a warning. It’ll hurt my best friend in the process, but we both made a pact going into this. There’s no line we won’t cross.

My task makes an ugly turn and I nearly take a life. Such a small, unimportant person—someone no one would even notice was gone. She’s a problem my money and power can easily sweep under the rug.

It’s what my father wants. It’s what my brothers want. But when she finally opens those big, innocent brown eyes, I realize I’ve found what I’ve been searching for my entire life. I don’t want my little problem to disappear…I want to keep her.

Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak—they’re for The Elite.

Money is my legacy, but I want something money can’t buy.
I am Baxter Samuel Goddard V.
I am Gluttony.

Sloth: Releasing May 13th

I don’t give a fuck.
Not about money or fame, beauty or power. I’ve had all those things since birth, and trust me, they’re a fucking snooze.
I don’t give a fuck about anyone, not even myself.
Until my father proves evil can exist in the most holy of places. For the first time ever, something like interest stirs in my soul.
He wants me to enroll at St. Augustine.
Join The Elite.
Court the virginal daughter of Archbishop Savoie.
Prove to him I’m worth the family name.
I’ll do it all.
And I’ll do it so well, no one will know what’s coming. People are so quick to underestimate the wicked and lazy.

REVIEW:

I am slowly developing a craving for the seven deadly sins! First Lust and now Pride. Yes, please I want more!!
The concept of 7 sins for 7 authors is genius. The series is not only known as, ‘The Elite Seven’, but is also the collective group of seven men within the book. Pride takes us on another adventure that is weaved throughout the story of Lust. Pride is about Mason Blackwell, the official leader of the group, and his backstory and how he came to be at St. Augustine. We are brought into Mason’s world and can see how his moniker as ‘Pride’ truly fits Mason. Pride is something that means a lot to him. Besides his sister, Evie, it is the only thing that he can call his.
I not only enjoyed getting to see more of Lust’s life unfold, but I loved getting the inside scoop on the Blackwell’s. Mason (& Evie) have not had an easy life. There were individuals whom he thought he could trust and keep him and Evie safe and protected. In one night, all he’s ever known is blown up and taken away from him.
As much as I liked Rhett, I LOVED Mason. There is just something about him and his character that is so appealing. He may be down and out, but he is not anyone’s whipping boy (for long). He is Mason Blackwell. He is the Alpha to the elite seven. He is the most dominant, powerful and assertive one and watch out anyone that may have crossed him prior to this.
There is only one thing this alpha wasn’t expecting and that is his assignment, Meghan Benedict. Meghan is a beautiful soul; an absolute sweetheart with a racy side. Watch out world when these two come together. How you feeling? Hot, hot, hot!!
The next book up is Wrath. I am so intrigued to see how the addition of Wrath will continue to develop this story.
