Tap Out by Alley Ciz–Review

You know when you just have to read a book. Tap Out was that book for me. Firstly, it was because of Power Play. (If you haven’t read it, you must). It’s through that book that I got a good sense of her writing style. She’s sarcastic, her heroines are feisty, and some of the best use of ingenious jesting I have seen in a book, thus far. I laughed, cried (happy tears), had a spit take or two (Thank you, Alley😉), and just overall swooned. Secondly, I’ve been blessed in life to be able to work with athletes and Alley, truly, brought me back to that time. Her accuracy with styles of fighting, taping procedures, the overall fighting program/routine, and of course, equipment (uh-hum, wreck bag. 🤣🤣🤣) was completely true to life.

Gage is more than a man, he’s a mountain at 6’7”, 260 lbs., with corded, sinewy muscles…um, yes, please! 🙋. However, besides, his external physicality, he is sweet, family oriented, protective, and alpha protective to the core, with a true love for his MMA job. Straight up, Gage is a catch.

“She swallowed–hard–at the arm porn perfection now inches from her face.”

Rocky Steele. I must admit that I have a slight crush on her, because I want to be her. She is a Physical Therapist with many credentials behind her, hence, why she is ‘Alphabet Soup’. She comes from an MMA family and knows how to take care of herself. She is fierce, passionate about life and career, beautiful, and fit. She is not afraid to not only stand her ground but push you off of it and out of your comfort zone. The girl has mad skills. There is one small thing that is her weakness. Her childhood crush on Gage James.

“Just so you know…I have every intention of making you mine.”

Rocky and Gage are so passionate and hot, but they are truly the key to each other’s lock. I loved this couple so much. There are so many ‘goals’ in this book, that it was easy to fall in love with Tap Out. #RelationshipGoals #FriendshipGoals #FamilyGoals #WhoWantsToBeInACoven (goals).

Alley Ciz wrote with absolute perfection. Her timing, plot line, story line, topic accuracy, and pacing were all on point. The ability she had to absolutely swarm and encase me, completely making me feel as if I was the one sitting on the couch next to any member of the group, or ringside was outstanding. Tap Out, remember to put that on your TBR right now!! You won’t want to miss it!!

“The math totally adds up.”

“‘What math?’ she asked, already regretting the decision. ‘That you should bang.'”

“‘All I’m saying is P plus V equals O. As in orgasms,’ she whispered the last. ‘See…math.'”

Mason (Trinity Academy, book 2) by Michelle Heard–Review

Ms. Heard is beginning to grab my attention, and I like it!! In my little world, she is soon becoming the queen of one-page cliffhangers. Cliffie’s that I never saw coming and, literally, took my breath away. Wow, Michelle, really??

Trinity Academy is an interconnected series, with each book focused on a different couple. This one is about Mason Chargrill and Kingsley Hunt. In the last book, we read about Falcon Reyes and Layla Shepard and they are also featured throughout the book. YES, we get more of Falcon and Layla. We also get to know Lake a little more, as well as Preston, the universal PA.

I, literally, could not put this down. I was so sucked into every word, dialogue, scene, and situation. ENTHRALLED!! Mason starts out where Falcon ends and from the get-go, there is nothing but, full steam ahead. Remember, these guys are like the Three Musketeers, ‘All for one and one for all, united we stand divided we fall.’ Falcon, Mason, and Lake take this saying true to heart. No matter what is going on in their world’s, they have each other’s back to form a united front. This is completely evident during some of the trying times throughout the book.

Mason…❤❤❤! In Falcon, I was thoroughly about him, yet there was just something about Mason that had me so intrigued with him and his story. So, need less to say, when I got the book, I absolutely fell in love and absolutely adored him. He is such a broody MF, with no cares left to give, drowning in an overabundance of negative emotions. Despite all this, I couldn’t help but fall for this a@@hole.

Kingsley is Layla’s roommate and by default, in the boy’s group, where others know not to mess with her. Over the course of many tragic and eye-opening events, Mason and Kingsley both need to re-assess their ‘Fuck Frenemies’ relationship.

Despite some, ‘Aww, hell’ and ‘No way’ moments. I was utterly in love, sucked in, and swept along with the story. Despite heavy and shocking moments, there were many laugh out loud/snort moments. I ended this book with a few runaway tears. Now, were they from the emotional overload or sadness, I don’t know. I do know, I anxiously await Lake’s book now. If for any reason, that cliffhanger, Michelle!!

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.’

Hush, Hush by Lucia Franco–Review

Knock, knock…Please, enter into the world of hot, steamy, seductive, and oh, so forbidden, but I must warn you, leave your morals at the door!!

Aubrey is our heroine. She is your average twenty-one-year-old college student who lives with her best friend, loves her Grammy more than anything, and is trying to finish her senior year while struggling at two jobs to keep her and Grammy afloat.

Aubrey is your typical college senior, trying to figure out what she’s going to do with her life. She comes from nothing and is resolute that she most likely will have nothing (financially speaking). Her BFF, Natalie, is in the opposite boat. She has a trust fund but refuses to use it and does whatever she wants/can to live in the life of luxury that she is used to. Aubrey begins to like the perks she experiences while going out with Natalie and money soon becomes prominent is her pursuit of living. Aubrey is presented with what could potentially be a financial windfall, but it comes with one stipulation, leave your morals at the door.

Ok, so I’m going to upfront and honest here. I have sat on this review for a while, simply because I had no idea what I was going to say or how I was going to rate it. I’m not a prude, so that wasn’t my issue, although, there were a couple things that raised the ‘ole eyebrow. I had such a hard time getting into the book until about 52%. The first half was slow and disjointed and quite frankly, Aubrey annoyed me. She wasn’t a heroine I could get behind. The second half moved a little quicker, but we are also finally introduced to the hero and a big ole secret.

I have heard nothing but good things about this author and even though this is my first book of hers, I would be willing to try again.

Malum part 2 by Amo Jones–Review

Seriously, a part of me wants to just say to you all, ‘Just read the book. Don’t hesitate, don’t think twice, just one-click this baby and read.’ However, that really isn’t a review now is it?

I am wrecked, flabbergasted, suspicious of everything and everyone. Dare I say happy? I’m afraid if I do, Ms. Jones is going to throw another one of her epic monkey wrenches in everything and take that away. I’ll admit I said this before about a couple of books, but Malum part 2, truly did destroy me and rip me apart. I’m still unsure how I’m being put back together, but my love for Tillie and Nate is strong. 

Tillie is the epitome of savage. She is hardcore, smart, will defend herself and others, if needed. In a sense, she is like Robin Hood. He gave money to the poor, while Tillie defends those that are frailer and weaker than her. She doesn’t take any crap from anyone. However, there is one person that can slip past her defenses no matter how many times she puts a wall up. Nate.

Nate has left me speechless. He had just evolved tremendously from part 1 to now. Malum part 1 felt like boys playing King of the Hill on the schoolyard. Malum part 2 brings on a whole new ballgame for The Kings. It’s no more King of the Hill their playing, now it’s King of the World and watch out world, because these boys mean and do what they say. Their lives are one big chess match and you don’t want to cross Tillie and her Kings. They have matured, evolved in their roles within the group and quite frankly are bad@ss. Nate was larger than life. He appeared to fill in every space wherever he was. He is domineering, scary, hot and plain excelled in his role with the Kings. Tillie and Nate are two puzzle pieces trying to find their match. The downside to finding your match with these two is that they are explosive together and if you don’t watch out, you will get burned. 

Amo Jones has seriously done it again. She held back no punches, displayed the chemistry that just blew up the page, took you on a ride full of up’s, down’s, twist’s and turns. As jarring and addicting as it was, one of my favorite things was when Tillie and the Kings just sat back, relaxed, bantered and had a few laughs. They emanated the whole feeling of family, despite not necessarily being blood related. 

Amo you continually mesmerize me with your talented writing. I know when I read an Amo Jones’ book, I will have had everything drawn out of me and be left breathless. In Malum 1, I was full of ‘no way’ and ‘oh my gosh where is this going’? In Malum 2, all questions from part I were answered, and you have left me spent and emotional.

Congratulations on a well-done book and I can’t wait for what’s next!!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️Wickedly and delicious Royal stars.
