From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden best friend’s little sister romance called Little Hoodlum!

There are few people in this world I thought I could count on.
My brother. My two best friends. And him.
Jordy Martinez.

Problem is, Jordy thought protecting me was his sole mission in life.
He gave up everything for me and my brother, including his freedom.

Losing him left me hollow and empty.
But after three long years, I’ve learned to live without him.

Until I get mixed up with a guy who has dangerous connections in Hood River and everything begins to crash down around me just in time for my senior year of high school.

Possessive boyfriend with a penchant for violence.
Best friend turned enemy.
Fights with my big brother.

Everything’s a mess and I’m not sure there’s any fixing it.
I might just need that bully ex-convict who’ll do anything—again—to keep me safe.

All I want is peace, happiness, and love.
And I won’t go down without a fight in order to get it.
I’m a Hoodlum after all.

They call me Little Hoodlum, but I’m not so little anymore…

This is a full-length high school friends-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book two in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Little Hoodlum shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.

Blurb:
Three things my mother acquired when she became engaged:

1. A brand new Tiffany’s ring.
2. A lavish home on Heartbreak Hill.
3. Three privileged stepsons.

The last thing I expected was to fall for one of them, least of all Thayer Ames.
Beautiful, brooding, and untouchable.
I knew it was a bad idea. He warned me himself.
But he was a thunderstorm, and I never could resist the rain.
It was perfect…
Until it wasn’t.
One night was all it took for our world to crumble around us, leaving only secrets and lies between us.
Now, I have to face him again, and the boy I used to know has become the man who loves to hate me.

Tell Me Pretty Lies by Charleigh Rose–Review

It seems to be that there is a running theme for 2019-2020. Bully romances. Now in real life, I don’t condone bullying, but in my fantasy book land, I love bully romances. Did I also mention that I love stepbrother romances and no I don’t have a stepbrother, I just love taboo stories as well. Charleigh Rose sent out another bully romance, Tell Me Pretty Lies, that focus on Thayer and Shayne.

Ms. Rose is known to have characters that have a labyrinth of emotions, angsty and dramatic. She never disappoints in that ‘sizzle effect’ of her characters. There will be full on steam, so you might need a rag for your glasses.

We first meet Thayer and Shayne after having to attend a funeral. Despite having over elevated emotions from the day, we are introduced to who Thayer and Shayne are together. Something happens and the story takes off from there.

“He’s just a boy you used to know. You will not fall apart at the sight of him.”

Shayne is not only the unfortunate recipient of being bullied, but only has herself to rely on. Thayer is an over privileged teenager with little parental guidance and broody as all get out. The thing about Thayer is he has so many layers to his broodiness, how does one tell what’s real and what’s not real?

Charleigh wrote a book that displayed this back and forth tension between them all the while maintaining teenage angst and steaminess. Despite this, I felt that I wanted just a wee bit more. Possibly some more nuggets of information regarding their pasts or why their parents were so sketchy and secretive and maybe, just maybe a second epilogue.

“Finding a love like ours is like catching lightning in a bottle. And I’m never letting go.”

Another huge positive in this book is the secondary characters. Specifically, Holden. Oh my gosh, that guy just had me hooked and secretly I’m hoping, praying and crossing everything I can to get his book.

If angst, drama, steam all rolled up in a teenage, bully romance is your jam. Tell Me Pretty Lies should be your next read.

“So innocent. So pure. But they don’t know what you like to do with your stepbrother in the dark.”

Filthy Little Pretties by Trilina Pucci–Review

I am always amazed when an author I love is able to switch categories seamlessly as if they have been doing it their whole life.  Welcome, Ms. Pucci to the world of NA! Trilina, who is known for her more dark and sexy reads, stepped up to the challenge and hit it out of the park.

Filthy Little Pretties is full of an overabundance of teenage angst, drama, rebelliousness, the uber notorious teenage cliques and every bad decision a teenager could make. FLP has it all and then some.

“The reality is, this school is a snapshot of the world, and McCallister is my crown, even if it’s heavy on my head.”

What we have is a cross between Gossip Girl and Cruel Intentions. These kids are privileged, they have money and are the upper echelon of society. While they may appear prim and proper (😂), there is also the sexy, seductive and manipulative side to them. Wickedly delicious!

Donovan, Grey and Liam are a part of this society, except they have been friends for years. However, something comes between them and one has to leave when they are twelve years old. The two remaining will always have a hole in them from Donovan leaving, but they go on as any kid would. That is until Van makes a reappearance at their high school. Watch out world, the three besties are back together.

Three friends in frot of a sea

“Welcome back, Cherry.”

The love they have for each other was delicious and incredible to see, yet don’t let this love fool you. Van, Grey and Liam love to push each other’s button and boundaries. Yet, somehow, with this threesome it works.

The world that you are sucked into in Filthy Little Pretties is perfection. I love every friendship, enemy, drama and angst that was written. Trilina Pucci wrote a book that is beautiful and raw, unpredictable, excessive angst that just jumps of the page sucking you in and is amazing! Trilina you slayed me with the telling of this NA romance and I’m crossing fingers and toes for more!!

“First. Last. And only”

 

Ruthless Knight by A. Jade–Review

Reading Cruel Prince, I thought I was done for. I fell hardcore for the Royal Hearts family, including Cole Covington. The tortured, black hearted twin with nothing but malice in him. I couldn’t wait to dig into his book to see what made him tick.

Ruthless Knight did not disappoint. Within her 100 chapters, A. Jade wrote a web of feelings, emotions, storylines, and flashbacks to make a grown woman cry. I couldn’t help but feel my own heart breaking while reading about Cole and Sawyer.

Sawyer Church, the Bible thumper at RHA. Despite trying to be a nobody and blend into the walls, you couldn’t help but notice her. She also is tortured, unloved, unwanted, and compared to her ‘perfect’ sister. For some reason, she can see through Cole to the good that is hidden deep down. This, of course, unsettles Cole, so he does what most teenagers would, he picks on her.

When all is said and done and the book is completed, this was a beautiful story of acceptance, love, and forgiveness. However, to get to ‘The End’, Ms. Jade took us through some tough topics and situations that will leave you tearing up for days. It’s hard not to love all characters written within this book. They are family. One of these family members that I am anxious to read about is Bianca. I want to know her story and what makes Baby Covington the spoiled, bitchy, and devious princess that she is!!

Twisted Betrayal by Siobhan Davis–Blog Tour and Review

TB - BT banner.jpg

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Twisted Betrayal, the next story in the dark, bully romance Rydeville High Elite Series from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

TwistedBetrayal_ecover

He thinks he’s broken me. That I’m finally under his complete control. But I’m biding my time, gathering intel, making plans, and waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. So, when an unexpected savior appears—offering me a way out—I grasp it with both hands.

But the man I love refuses to let me go, and he’s hell-bent on protecting me at all costs.

Except he’s far too late.

Kaiden’s betrayal fuels the anger flowing through my veins, and now our roles are reversed—I’m the hunter, and he’s my prey. I enjoy torturing him, lying to him, and letting him believe in false truths that were never our reality.

Until the stakes are raised, and I’m forced into playing their game again. Only this time, it’s not just my life hanging in the balance.

I thought he’d done his worst. That he didn’t have the power to hurt me anymore.

But I was wrong.

His depravity knows no bounds, and now, he’s taken everything from me.

This time, it means war, and I’m taking no prisoners.

Excerpt:

He shoots me a shit-eating grin Jackson would be proud of as he locks the door and stalks toward me. “What the fuck does it look like?”

“Like you’re crazy as shit and have a death wish,” I say, backing away from him.

His eyes are thick with lust, his body cloaked in anger, and he wears it proudly like body armor.

I scramble around desks as I avoid capture. All the while he advances. Like this menacing form hell-bent on punishing me.

Liquid lust races through me, and my core pulses with a desperate need.

I love it when he’s like this.

Looking at me like he wants to fuck me so hard I’ll bleed.

My body purrs in anticipation as my back slams against a solid obstacle.

I know I’m sick and twisted, but I think that’s why we’re so well matched.

He wants to punish me, and I want to be punished.

Twisted Betrayal by Siobhan Davis–Review

😲😮Sweet Lemony Snickets! Heavens to Betsy!! Well, smack my a@@ and call me Sally!! What in tarnation, did I just read?!😮😲

Siobhan Davis, you never fail to astound me with your writing. Twisted Betrayal is everything the title implies. I thought at the end of Cruel Intentions, this couldn’t get any better. I was riding such a high, that when I started TB, I felt like that high would continue. In fact, I really had to settle myself back down, because the high at the end of Twisted Betrayal was nowhere near the ending in Cruel Intentions. This could be my fault, because I read them back to back, but nonetheless, both were freaking incredible. I am straining my brain trying to figure out how this could possibly end with a happily ever after, because right now, I am gutted.

There is so much tension, betrayal, deceit, drama, suspense, I could feel these characters drowning in all the emotions being thrown around with no end in sight. Just when you think you are going down with them, there’s a little light at the end of the tunnel and you think Abby and Kai are going to get some sort of happiness. But no, Siobhan must say in her head, ‘Oh no, let’s throw them through the ringer again and see what happens’!! I think I have bruises from how many times my jaw hit the floor. What I do know is the my TMJ hurt like the dickens, because of said action. Siobhan Davis…you slay me!!

Some basic principles in this world are we are all born, and will all die, there are people who will always love and protect us, our parents (theoretically), and you can live in three different time dimensions; the past, the present and the future. Abby and Kai experience all these principles, but for them, they aren’t necessarily given.

If you wanted to meet the devil/Lucifer/Satan, all you have to do is read Twisted Betrayal and search ‘Michael Hearst’. Abigail is the unfortunate recipient of having him as a father. He is a vile, maniacal, psychopath with illusions of grandeur topped off with a Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I despise, Michael Hearst with a passion and as you read, you will begin to understand why. My heart bled for Drew and Abby to have to grow up with this character as a ‘father’ (and I use the term loosely).

I was thoroughly sucked in and invested. Twisted Betrayal grabbed me by the heart and didn’t let go, even long after reading it. It’s been a few days since I read this and I’m still in emotional book hangover. Simply put, if you love emotional reads laden with lots of drama, deceit, and the inability to guess what’s going to happen next, Twisted Betrayal is for you.

*Keep in mind, this is a harsh book, that may not be easy for all to read, but if this kind of stuff doesn’t bother, MUST READ!!*
