Rich Prick by Tijan–New Release

Rich Prick cover

A young adult/new adult standalone from Tijan!

Title: Rich Prick
Release date: June 15th, 2020

Sue’s Review for LLBB

Synopsis:

He walked into school on his first day and owned it.
I guess that’s what happens when you’re a prick, rich, and you’re best friends with the ruling school’s king.
Also didn’t hurt he’s drop dead gorgeous.

That’s all fine.
I mean, I have nothing to do with them.
I’m a loner, invisible, and that’s how I wanted it to be.

I was even proud of it, until I wasn’t.

Until I saw a girl kneel before him.
Until I couldn’t look away.
Until he caught me watching.

His name is Blaise Devroe. My name is Aspen Monson.
He only knew how to get, command, and demand attention. I knew how to do everything but that.
And this is our story.

*Rich Prick is a full 100k standalone.

Teaser:

“You get off on watching? Is that your thing, or is it just my cock you like?”
I was heading to my car after school when I heard him.
My heart stopped, almost literally. If I looked down, it was likely the entire contents of my stomach would be at my feet.
He’d found me.
I looked up, and Blaise DeVroe stepped out from behind the truck parked next to Maisie. His hand was on her back end, and he waited there, in the shadows (thank God), his head tilted to the side.
He looked so good, so delicious. All hard edges and angles. That jawline. It could give me razor burn between my legs, and I’d climax just by breathing hard.
I saw the flare in his gaze and felt his edge. I had to rein in a bit of my inner weirdo.
I’d heard about what happened that morning. Hell, I’d witnessed it myself, but then I’d also heard all the whispering about it afterward. It spread through the school like wildfire. And what they were saying hadn’t been kind. Most bets were that Blaise was going to be kicked out of school. Others said Zeke was going to have him beat up. Still others thought Zeke could have him arrested. How that even made sense, I had no clue.
But I also saw those guys interact through the rest of the day as if nothing had happened. Zeke still smiled at Blaise, even if he seemed more cautious. Some people said there was a rift forming in school. But again, why did that even matter? We had a week and four days left to be here. Then it was summer.
“You talk?” His head cocked forward. There was a slight bark to his words.
I jumped, then gathered myself. “Oh. Um…”
Shoot. I bit down on my lip. What did I say here? Okay. I had nothing, so I guess honesty was the best policy. Besides this guy playing a major role in my schoolgirl fantasies, I couldn’t deny that I was a little scared of him right now. I’d always felt there was something more in him, a wild edge, but no one ever said anything. There’d been no rumors about it, until today.
Today, everyone had seen. Today, everyone was talking about it.
“I, uh…” Screw it. I shrugged. “It was live porn. What did you expect?”

Jugador by Rose Croft–Review

I have been a fan of the Mendoza series since Cabezon and of Ms. Croft since the beginning. There is one thing that she always brings to all her characters and that is heart, a passion if you will. Whether you have a troubled child with familial issues, a teenage mother stuck in an unhealthy living situation or an adult with commitment issues, their characters are passionate. This is completely evident within Jugador. This book is about Marco and Lily. Their heartfelt, emotional, and sometimes not so magical relationship has developed over many years.

Vicente and Emilio both have stolen my heart for different reasons, but I’ve found that I need to find a little more space in my heart for Marco Cruz. He might be my favorite family member yet. He is a scared and troubled boy with family issues who grows up to be a scared and troubled man with family issues and too much money at his disposal. My heart broke to read about this football God who had it all yet underneath all that hard-exterior shell he was still a scared little boy trying to take care of himself.

Lily is the only female in the Mendoza family (poor girl), who is highly overprotected and therefore, treated like a little kid. She has always had a little crush on the football stud who happens to her brother’s best friend. You know what that means, Lily is off limits. There are many misunderstandings between the Mendoza’s, Marco, and Lily when a secret comes to life. With that, Lily does not see Marco for another ten years. Lily is a super sweet, yet feisty individual. She would help anyone out if only asked and it is because of this that something unexpected happens.

Marco and Tiger Lily seem fated to be together, but sometimes, fate can be wrong and the next thing you know, you are a missed connections ad on Craigslist. It is so gut-wrenching and emotional as a reader to go through these obstacles along with Marco and Lily. I cried, sometimes a lot, screamed, had to walk away, and often re-read parts to make sure that I got it. Rose wrote these two characters fantastically. They tore apart my heart and then stitched it back up wrapped up in a pretty, shiny bow.

Jugador is, by far, one of my top reads. It was authentic, humbling, spicy, hot, enlightening, cry inducing, and overwhelmingly bewitching. Grab Kleenex, your support animal/object and dive into ‘that’ book of the year, Jugador!

Heart Thief by Key Dukey (Sinister Collection)–Review

Heart Thief is a gritty, dark re-telling of Moana. Here we have two sisters, Mona, and Clara. Due to their living situation, they are closer than close. Clara has yearned for freedom and gave Mona a matching trinket. She holds this close to her heart.

Soon, Mona is left alone. Living on an island full of people yet feeling like she is in solitary confinement. She lives with her father and mother, while her father is the ‘leader’ of this cult world. She was taught that all things from the outside world was evil and to only believe what her father had to say, yet, all she could think of was the outside world. Unfortunately for Mona, she was being ‘groomed’ into taking over as leader when her father stepped down. She longed for more than this.

My heart cried not only for Mona and Clara, but for certain individuals and scenarios on the island. I couldn’t help, but to root for Mona and her quest for more. Ker Dukey gave a FABULOUS re-telling of Moana yet made it a true Ker original with the twists and turns. Let me tell you the last one had me shocked and re-read until the end. WOW!! Despite being a loose re-telling, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down.

Without a doubt, no questions needed, a 5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐read!!

Blurb:
I only had one rule: don’t fall in love with the cruel prince.

I broke it.

When the clock struck twelve, I went back to being a servant. He promised to let me go with my heart in pieces…but Grayson Crowne was always king at breaking promises.

I refuse to let him lock me in a tower.

I have no choice but to take the only out offered to me–another cruel prince.

Refuge in a man I loathe.

Rescued from the man I love.

I wanted to forget Grayson, forget Crowne Hall, and hide, but fate has other plans.

But if Grayson and I are fated, then our fate is forbidden.

Our happily ever after will only end one way…in heartbreak.

About the Author:
I started writing the moment I could read. My first characters were Wibbley and Squig and I used MS Word and clipart to bring them to life when I was a kid in elementary school. I started seriously thinking about being a writer in High School and I remember the day exactly, because it was such an epiphany. I was always so uncertain. You know how everyone was always asking what you wanted to be when you were older? Well I NEVER could decide.

I wanted to be a marine biologist.

An actor.

A FIRE FIGHTER (thank you Joaquin Phoenix in Ladder 49 for that phase).

One day it hit me—A WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldn’t stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but don’t ask me to show it to you, because it’s like I was in competition to beat the thesaurus). When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness, writing became even more important, because it became my therapy. When I wrote my characters, suddenly I wasn’t so alone.

These days you can find me daydreaming about where to travel with my husband, singing in my car, or lost in the newest K drama. And planning my next novel, of course

Forbidden Fate by Mary Catherine Gebhard–Review

My previous review of ‘Whoa, just whoa” still stands strong. It is been a few days since I reached ‘The End’ and I am still gob smacked! I was so anxiously excited to read Forbidden Fate with Gray and Story that when I got FF it was a ‘don’t bother me, leave me alone and no phone use’ scenario. Forbidden Fate just cemented my love for them, along with one of my ‘Best of 2020’.

Going into FF, I knew that MCG would take us on a ride. She is a master at delivering all the feels, but in a non-conventional way. I found myself going in with some pre-conceived notions on where she will take us next. What I did not expect was the path she took us on to get to ‘The End’. Just when you think you might have an idea where this will end up, she will take you on another twist and turn. Beware!

Through MCG’s excellent writing, I felt transported into the storyline. I knew, I just knew, that there was going to be angst, heart in your throat, moments of disbelief, tears, and many episodes of hot passion for Gray and Story. MCG did not disappoint. Forbidden Fate has all the feels!! It was perfectly imperfect!!!
