Rich Prick by Tijan–Review

5 Stars

Tijan is one of my unicorn authors. I want to inhale every word that she puts in front of me. Her Fallen Crest series is one of my ultimate favorites. Now, Rich Prick is about Blaise and Aspen, but there are ties back to Fallen Crest and her Crew series. Blaise is Cross half-brother and Aspen is the little sister to Nate (remember that Nate whose BFs with Mason, but lives with Logan? Yep, that Nate). It is amazing how she seamlessly melds these different stories together.

For different reasons, Aspen and Blaise both have familial issues and they handle this home situation differently. Aspen is the quiet, almost unforgettable character. All she wanted to do was finish her senior year the way she started it, quiet and invisible. She is secretly counting down to graduation, so she can move into the next phase of her life.
Now, the problem with wanting to remain invisible, is that someone, somewhere will see past that wallflower status and see the person. Aspens person was Blaise. He was able to look past her invisibility and see the real Aspen. The girl who did not want to say much, but internally had a worlds worth of feelings, thoughts, and emotions just waiting to get out.

For a high school senior, Blaise was a powerful and present character. He also had familial issues, but for completely different reasons. His form of communication and expressing himself is through his fists which have an incredibly short and easy to start wick. He is angry, for many different reasons, but notices early on that the one person who can calm his temper is Aspen. Like a flower growing towards the sunlight, Blaise finds himself gravitating to Aspen and wanting to spend his time with her.

I was completely invested into the three main relationships going on in this story. 1) Aspens personal story, 2) Blaise personal story, and finally, 3) their story together. Rich Prick makes me feel ALL the feels. From the multiple and sometimes sudden twists and turns, shocking jaw dropping moments, angst and drama, and hidden secrets that are slithering through the main characters like a 20-foot anaconda.

As I mentioned before, the Fallen Crest/Crew series were brilliant, but there is only one book that is semi equivalent to Rich Prick and that is Ryans Bed. I was ruined after finishing it with the hardest and heaviest book hangover to date. Well, Rich Prick, is right up that alley. When the end was in sight I was panicked and scared. I did not want this beautiful story to end. The story with main characters who were so realistic I had to keep in mind, that they were pen and paper characters, not a true to life story. My heart is sad that its ending, but happy/ecstatic with the chance to have gotten to know them.

Sue’s Review for LLBB

Synopsis:

He walked into school on his first day and owned it.
I guess thats what happens when youre a prick, rich, and youre best friends with the ruling schools king.
Also didnt hurt hes drop dead gorgeous.

Thats all fine.
I mean, I have nothing to do with them.
Im a loner, invisible, and thats how I wanted it to be.

I was even proud of it, until I wasnt.

Until I saw a girl kneel before him.
Until I couldnt 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.
Hed 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 Id 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.
Id heard about what happened that morning. Hell, Id witnessed it myself, but then Id also heard all the whispering about it afterward. It spread through the school like wildfire. And what they were saying hadnt 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色
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 couldnt deny that I was a little scared of him right now. Id always felt there was something more in him, a wild edge, but no one ever said anything. Thered been no rumors about it, until today.
Today, everyone had seen. Today, everyone was talking about it.
I, uh色 Screw it. I shrugged. It was live porn. What did you expect?

Jugador by Rose Croft–New Release and Review

Jugador

Now LIVE!!!

BLURB:
He was the star athlete.
Football player.
MVP.
A walking god among mere mortals.
Everyone knew Marco Cruz was destined to be a supernova burning bright in the sky.

On the outside, he seemed to have it all.
On the inside, he was a troubled boy hiding his pain.
He truly was a beautiful, vacant shell.

I thought I could fix him.
I thought I could change him.
I thought I could handle what we were.

I was wrong.
He warned me he wasnt relationship material.
He told me hed ruin me if I let him.

I shouldve listened.
But, I wanted to take a bite of that shiny, poisonous apple,
regardless of the consequences.

This is a standalone but if you want to know more about the characters, please read books 1 & 2.

Falling for Dr. Knight–Review

Falling for Dr. Knight is so apropos as a title, because that is what you will do by the end of the book. Preston Knight is your Knight in shining armor. Preston fits in well with some other famous doctors. Do you remember Dr. Dreamy or Dr. McSteamy? Well now we have Dr. Charming/Dr. Sexy/Dr. Suave (take your pick). A man that is so loving, suave, mesmerizing, grounded and loves kids, which is a good thing because he is a pediatric doctor. So, picture this, a handsome and amazing guy holding a newborn to his chest. Do you not hear your ovaries yelling and begging, Please! Me next! Pick Me, Pick Me! Yep, that is the Dr. Knight effect.

When Preston and Cress first met there was an instant spark and a bubbling of chemistry. This spark continued to grow and ultimately formed a strong cohesive bond. Not only between Cress and Preston, but also including Lexi. This group felt and acted like a true family unit.

Cress is a single mother to Alexis. She is blessed to have help from her mother, Momma Cress, and her best friend, Ave. Recently she has started to get help from Dr. Charming which shocks her that he is so willing to help.

Preston and Cress are the couple that you want to mark as #CoupleGoals. They are so incredibly cute together and Preston has such a unique and sweet way to say goodnight/goodbye. He is just adorable with Lexi, but truthfully, he is amazing with all the Cress women. Charming, hot, slightly dorky, hot, mesmerizing, and hot!! Wait, did I tell you how hot he was??

Now Cress life has not always been sunshine and roses. She has had a lot darkness, doom, and gloom. Thoughts of not having any better than what she had after finding out she was pregnant. Unfortunately, she has some baggage from her past in the form of her baby daddy, Creed. All I am going to say is that Creed is something else.

I adored this book. I had been reading a slew of dark romances and Falling for Dr. Knight was a nice palette cleanser. I highly recommend reading Dr. Knight!!

Blurb:
I only had one rule: dont 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 meA WRITER. I could do it ALL. Then you couldnt stop me from writing. I penned my first novel at fifteen (but dont ask me to show it to you, because its 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 wasnt 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
