I just knew I was going to love The Sculptor, given it was about a Potter brother who also happened to be written by a unicorn author of mine. What I didn’t expect was how much this whole family would steal my heart. Duke and Ramsey not only tore my heart apart, but Kristy Marie eviscerated it one keystroke at a time.
Duke and Ramsey were a little more than childhood sweethearts, they were soulmates, even at the tender age of 18. They had that once-in-a-lifetime, never going to find another, epically strong first love—the kind of love a person could only wish for. Unfortunately, circumstances tore them apart, only to be reunited years later.
What comes next is the whole gamut of emotions. This emotional roller coaster had me fully invested from laughter, tears, immense tears, anger, a couple of snorts, hope, and more. Kristy Marie has some amazing books, but with this series, she has elevated her game, yet again. I am so excited and ready for the last book of this series!
So, let’s see how many fingers you can put down with this review.
Have been waiting very patiently for Quincy Hardwell’s story?
Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong anywhere? Just like Jessamine.
Have you ever had to take on too much responsibility and deal with it?
Did you ever have a secret crush? Were you able to talk to your secret crush about it?
Lastly, have you ever encountered a lion and lived to talk about it? Do not worry, Simba is all ‘fluff’ and no bite.
Quincy and Jess’ story was sheer perfection. The trials and tribulations that each had to go through in their lives was heartbreaking. I absolutely adored Q. He was the ‘it’ guy in high school but was able to penetrate Jessamine’s walls. Meanwhile, Jess had a life that no teenager should have to deal with, making her the invisible outcast. My heart broke for her.
No Place Like Home had me invested and emotional. I was laughing and in the next breath crying and in shock. Ms. Lymari has an innate ability to merge different writing styles. Her emotionally intense and shocking moments sprinkled with dark elements is *chef’s kiss*. So, grab a tissue, your favorite comforting drink, and expect to stay up awhile, because you too will get sucked into everything that is No Place Like Home.
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.

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.
About Aly Originally from Savannah, Georgia, USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez now lives in South Carolina with her four hilarious children. Never one to take herself too seriously, she enjoys movies that can surprise her with a twist, charcuterie boards, and her mildly neurotic golden retriever. It should be known, however, that she hates pizza and ice cream, almost as much as writing her bio in the third person. She passes what little free time she has reading anything and everything she can get her hands on, preferably with a glass of wine by her side.
