Big Balls by Anna Michael–New Release/Review

Big Balls: a single dad sports romance by Anna Michael

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


When reading the blurb, I immediately thought this was right up my alley. I love single dad sports romances and after a run of dark romances, I needed a cleansing book. I am so incredibly happy that I picked this book up!

Anna Michael is a new to me author who delivers a storyline that has steam, a spunky heroine, three best friends that a guy wishes he did not have sometimes, and who could forget Katy, Ethan’s daughter. The BF’s and Zoe were hilarious in the book, but I have to say that Katy was the star.

Katy is not your typical kid. She is neuro diverse who flourishes under her tutor, Zoe. Katy’s autism does not slow her down when she has someone to teach her and guide her. She is whip smart and may only be six, but she acts six times that age and is the ‘mother’ to this band of billionaires.

Poor Ethan has been dealing with things in his personal life that have caused him to be guarded, sheltered, and overly protective of Katy and her surroundings. As a wide receiver for the New Orleans Sinners, his hands are his money makers, but the plays that he does after catching the ball have earned him the moniker, Big Balls. Well, Mr. Balls, it is time to nut up and get on board with the changes that are happening around you.

I, truly, must give, Ms. Michael a round of applause. Technically, this book was spot on about the autism spectrum. It can be difficult to write about a topic if you do not have firsthand knowledge. For me, Katy is very reminiscent to Asperger (high functioning) patients I have worked with. Congratulations!

Blurb:

Meraki Mallory lived two lives. The one that everyone thought she did, and the one she worked hard to hide. She burned with her demons instead of running from them, but when Niko Davis rode back into town with a bag full of secrets, she knew she would need to start hiding them instead. Niko knew her inside and out, and if he saw even a smidge of her soul, he would see that she was no longer the girl he left behind…

When the president of the New York chapter of the Seven Knights MC dies, he passes the gavel down to Niko… but unknown to anyone else, that’s not the only thing he left him.

Niko fights for what’s his, and he’s only ever claimed one person in his life—Meraki. So when he rips away the walls she built around herself with his bare teeth, the secrets that she has so fiercely hidden away all of these years suddenly bleed onto the four unmarked graves laid out in front of his steel-cap boots…

It started with a bond that destroyed everyone around them…

…it ends with blood.

*this is a DARK ROMANCE. Please check triggers if you think you may need to.

**Antichrist is not a retelling of Hunchback of Notre Dame, there are slight nods here and there toward the original tale.

About the Author:

Amo Jones is a USA Today & Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, totally winging this author thing (she’s probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic (Slytherin). She’s a profound work-a-holic, but when she’s not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & Husband at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Fall of the Stars by Monica James–New Release

Fall of the Stars
Book 2: In Love and War
Monica James

England is bleeding.
And there isn’t a thing I can do about it.
I am once again a prisoner to Wessex, captured by King Egbert because holding me hostage will bring them to him—my two Vikings who will risk heaven and earth to save me.
But I don’t need saving.
I am Princess Emeline, and I was taught by the best, and his name…Skarth the Godless.
The man whom I love more than anything in this world.
But things begin to blur when Ulf the Bloody reminds me of the promise I made, and that promise is that I belong to him.
We must work together to overthrow King Egbert, but the war I fight within my heart is far more dangerous than anything I will ever face on the battlefield.
The choice is not simple because we all must make sacrifices. But I soon realize that all is not fair in love and war.
Lives will be lost.
Hearts will be broken.
And come dawn, life as we know it will be changed forevermore.

Antichrist by Amo Jones–New Release and Review

AVAILABLE NOW

Oh. My. Fudging. Antichrist. Amo Jones, why? Why do I consciously choose to read your books again and again when I know you are going to break me over and over yet again? The answer is simple, you are a genius to the highest level. You know exactly what to write and how to write it. Bravo!!

Nik/Antichrist and Meraki are DEFINITELY not your traditional Heroes and heroines, even for a dark romance. They are toxic, darker than dark, and maybe slightly psychologically skewed. This book will rip you apart, leave you for dead, erroneously throw you back together only to rip you apart yet again…slowly and painfully!

The beginning was hit or miss for me. There were some timeline issues/jumps that made me feel slightly disconnected from the story, which made Amo’s writing style slightly different. However, the further you read the more it grabbed you and very quickly engulfed you in toxicity and demented pleasure all while carrying you along until you hit that ending. WTF do I say about that ending, except holy crap, you are good Amo Jones, you are good.

There are trigger warnings, many triggers, but for me, I wished I didn’t read them, because I was anticipating what would come next. I do not want to ruin your experience, so I will just tell you that dark can be done badly, or dark can be done so well that it will leave your rotten little heart happy. You will be confused and look for logic between the covers, but don’t, because you won’t find it. What you will find is Ms. Jones doing what she does best, messing with your mind and heart, while questioning if your soul is intact.

The media touted Dr. Potter as a savior dressed in a crisp suit. 

I think he’s a vicious madman of jerk-sized proportions. 

But fate is a wicked tease. 

Only Dr. Potter can give me what I need.

A fresh start. 

A new identity. 

But he refused, leaving me to take matters into my own hands by accepting a job as his partner’s new secretary.

Dr. Potter can’t turn down my case forever.

Or at least I thought. 

Until I found him on the office floor. 

Broken. 

Angry. 

With a venomous warning… One I failed to heed.
