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.

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.

Darling Dmitri by Rose Croft–Review

My Darling Dmitri,

You have snuck in under my radar and confiscated my heart, soul, and being. Your filthy words, unwanted touch, and overall aggressive and protective nature are almost too much (Hint: almost, but not entirely. I will not be throwing out my safe word!)

I wholeheartedly approve of grey sweatpants, no shirts (yours, not mine), working out, hot saunas and having your guy friends over. But this is getting ahead of myself. Do you remember the days when Daddy Arty told you to, ‘Make her feel welcome. Safe. Protected. You are now like her older brother.’ Yep, me neither. Good, now that that is settled, let’s get back to us!

Talk soon, my grumpy, grouchy, alpha Russian!
Checkmate,
Sue (the original zaychik)
—————————————-
Rose Croft has elevated her writing to a whole other level with Darling Dmitri. This is the third book in the Boys on the Hill series. Let me just say, I fell for Roman and his growly nature, while Nicholas sucked me in with all the feels, but it is Dmitri who has put me under a spell.

This book introduces us to Dmitri and Sorina. It is full of angst, it is forbidden, taboo, and has an alpha who will put ALL OTHER ALPHAS to shame. Sorina is a strong and feisty character who can give as good as she gets. Dmitri is Dmitri. A completely unapologetic, grumpy, Russian male, who excels in football.

The interaction between the two of them is explosive, electric, and spicy. There is witty banter, needling between friends, immense angst, and emotions on overload. It is safe to say that Dmitri and Sorina are my new favorite couple and Rose’s best book yet. I am so excited to read about Axel and his troubles. I have a feeling it is going to be good!!

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.
