Jeanette’s Review

A High so Sweet (Thornes & Roses, #2)A High so Sweet by Dani René
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

Let me start by saying that I love this author, her writing, and I absolutely loved the first book in this series. But…this book just seemed too rushed for me. It started out really good and I was loving it, but as the story got going there was some parts that I kept waiting for that are somewhat addressed in the end, but I felt should have happened sooner and had more details in the story. I had almost thought that it was overlooked until I got to the end, but a little too late for me. I loved the characters and other than some parts of the story being rushed I did enjoy.

Happy Reading Everyone!!!

The Destruction You Desire(Maddison Kings University #5)The Destruction You Desire by Tracy Lorraine
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally!!!

We get the second part of Peyton and Luca’s story and oh what a story it is! My faith has been restored! I absolutely love these characters and I am so happy that finally everything is out in the open.
We get heartbreak, we cry and yes, we eventually get revenge. This story pulled me in and didn’t let go until the very last page. I wanted to slap Luca, but his own heartbreak broke me. I’m so glad these two found their way back to each other. Great read. Great series. Check it out!

♛Release Blitz & Review ♛ Quiet Wealth by J.L. Drake♛

 
 
 
Title: Quiet Wealth
Series: Quiet Mafia #1
Author: J.L. Drake
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: July 22, 2021
BLURB

 

A twisted mafia romance about quiet wealth and refined darkness
 
Sienna
 
It’s been ten years since he left me with nothing but a pendant, a photo, and a broken heart. He was but a ghost, there one minute and gone the next. I picked myself up, dried my eyes, and built my life without him. Now he has come back into my life like a raging storm surrounded by crime and bloodshed. I no longer need him, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want him—or just a little taste…
 
Elio
 
Ten years ago, I had to leave behind the only light I had in my life. Without her, I live in darkness. I am not proud of the things I’ve done, nor the blood that’s been shed. Everything I did had been to protect her. We live by our code—family, power, loyalty, and protection. Our empire is built on the bones of our enemies. Now that she is back and we have a second chance, they will learn one way or another you do not touch my queen.
 
Capri Famiglia will rise to the top no matter the cost, bloodshed, or the lines that will have to be blurred.

EXCERPT
Stripping down to just my bra and underwear, I slipped into the water and allowed myself to float, proud that I had finally learned to swim. I splashed in the water, happy for a brief moment. Puffy clouds made their way across the blue sky, and I let myself drift away with them, enjoying the freedom. The smell of the plumeria filled the air, and I pretended it was Mother Nature gracing me with a gift of her perfume.
“I was beginning to think you were avoiding me.” His voice traveled across the water and vibrated through me. I ducked down, careful to keep my body underneath the water, so just my nose was above the surface. “It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen you here.” He peered into the hidey hole where we hid our notes and grinned. “I see you got my notes.”
He was right. I had been avoiding him, but it had come with a cost. His kindnesses and our chats had been so important to me. I realized how much I had missed him. I was lost and felt angry and sad all the time.
He tugged off his t-shirt with one hand and stood in his jeans. I saw the way they hung low on his hips. Elio was two years older than I was, and his body was that of a fighter. Strong, lean, and had that V that Cara always drooled over. Yes, Elio looked spectacular.
“And you’re swimming.” He placed a hand over his heart playfully. “That hurts.”
I couldn’t help but smile at that, even as I swam a little bit farther away from the shore. It was true that I didn’t like people looking at my body, especially because of all the bruises. I was also self-conscious about being so thin, although I had put a little meat on my bones lately. Most of all, I didn’t like the attention I got from the men at the dockyard and the house. It made me feel uncomfortable. I had developed quickly over the past few months, and it was difficult to hide my shape under my clothes.
I treaded water and tried to think of something to say as he dropped his jeans and waded into the water in just his boxers. He dipped under the surface and came up right in front of me.
His dark eyes seemed to be even more intense today, and I felt a jolt when I took a leap and stared into them. It was like someone poured a bucket of warm water over me.
“Sorry,” I whispered, and his eyes softened like he was happy I spoke. “Things have been hard, and I got a little…” I trailed off, unsure how to explain myself.
“Lost?”
“I think to be lost you need to have been found at some point,” I fought back an urge to cry. “I didn’t have a starting point. So…” I shrugged.
“I missed our notes.”
“Me too,” I confessed.
“But I missed you more.” He smiled sweetly. Elio would often be bold with his kindness. I admired that he could say what he wanted without a care.
His eyes flickered as something raced through his mind. I could feel his body language change.
“Do you trust me, Sienna?” I licked my lips and thought about his question. “You know me well enough to know I wouldn’t hurt you, right?”
I nodded because it was true. Elio had never said or done anything to hurt me in any way. In fact, he had cared for me over the years and never asked for anything in return. I felt like he knew me better than anyone else.
“May I take you to show you something?”

Quiet Wealth (Quiet Mafia, #1)Quiet Wealth by J.L. Drake
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book right here is why I flove this author so much. J.L. Drake takes a shot at writing a mafia story and she has nailed it. OMG!!! I am totally addicted to the story, the characters and everything in between. The twist and turns keep coming and that cliffhanger has me begging for more. Elio and Sienna are my new favorite characters and I can’t get enough of these two and the story that is unraveling right before my eyes. I am so excited that J.L. Drake has taken a chance on writing mafia. I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us with the rest of this story and what awaits us in the future. This is a total must read and highly, highly recommend any thing that she writes.

Happy Reading Everyone!!!

~~ MIchelle’s Review ~~

The Brazen (Calamity Montana, #3)The Brazen by Willa Nash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 amazing stars!

This series just keeps getting better and better. This is Kerrigan’s story and oh what a story it is.
When the one person who supported her business ventures passes away unexpectedly the last thing she does expect is his grandson.
Pierce has come to Calamity Montana to put his grandfather and the past behind him. What he doesn’t expect is to come face to face with his future.
These two are made for each other. The sparks are flying immediately and I love Kerrigan’s spunk. She’s relentless abs goes after what she wants. I absolutely fell in love with these two and can not wait for Cal abs Nellies book next. If you haven’t read any of this series go check them all out. They are fantastic!

Broken HeartsBroken Hearts by Rebecca Jenshak
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Figure skater plus hockey player, what could be hotter? I absolutely loved Rhett. If you’re looking for a swoon worthy character look no further. He is loyal, sweet and extremely hot.
Sienna is a tough chic who doesn’t let anything stand in her way. She’s one of those characters that you look up to, together these two are explosive. I loved their story. I laughed, cried and in the end fell in love with these two. The writing was fantastic and the story kept me engaged all the way through. Really enjoyed it.

After dedicating her entire life to figure skating, Rei Mitchell-Nagasaki is ready for a little bit of normal. And what’s more normal than attending college?

Zane West has had a rough life, but he’s found his way out of Ashton Heights and he isn’t about to lose it all when the demons of his past come knocking at the door.

Rei has one semester to show her father that she can have it all—a normal life and making it to the Winter Games—but it’s not so easy when there is a broody hockey player standing in her way. Once heated arguments turn into sharing the rink and late-night kisses, neither of them will be able to resist the pull.

Will they manage to defy the odds or was their love doomed from the very beginning?

🏒Michelle’s Review 🏒

Kiss To Defy (Blairwood University, #3)Kiss To Defy by Anna B. Doe
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this. Rei and Zanes story is a great addition to this series. I love that both characters are athletes from different worlds, trying their best.

Rei is a figure skater and of course Zane is on the hockey team. Right from the beginning you can see the chemistry these two have and I love how the author brought them together. I’ve loved all books of Blairwood University but this is one of my favorites. You’re going to live it!

⭐Blog Tour + Review ⭐WASTE MY TIME by Kelsey Clayton ⭐

My name is Easton Donovan,
and I massively screwed up.

Waste My Time, an all-new emotional and angsty new adult romance from Kelsey Clayton, is available now!

I should’ve given her the world.
Should’ve been everything she deserves.
Instead, I broke her like every promise I’ve ever made.

The darkness tells me to let her go.
Memories of my past keep me from letting her in.
Someone should tell her that loving me is a losing game.

Just being around her is a high I’ve never known.
If she knows what’s good for her, she’ll cut me off.
Given the chance, I’ll ruin her the way I’ve done to others.
But with the bomb she just dropped, she’s here to stay.

She’s flawless innocence.
I’m toxic destruction.
And the selfish part is, I need her.

Truth be told, Kennedy Lehigh could be the one to save me from myself.

Excerpt

Walking through campus, I keep my head down. The Advil has done as much for my headache as the saltine crackers the school nurse gives you for a broken arm. If there’s one thing I don’t want right now, it’s to make small talk with some shithead who thinks we’re friends simply because Z and I throw the best parties.
My only mission is to get to my class, where I can fall back asleep listening to the monotone voice of my professor as he drones on about the fundamentals of programming and problem solving. And yet, when I get most of the way there, I quite literally crash right into someone else.
Books fly out of the girl’s hand and land among mine on the ground.
“I’m so sorry,” I say, but as I look up, I notice Kennedy staring back at me.
Shit.
I’ve been trying to stay out of her way. I mean, Tessa found happiness after me, and then I practically destroyed her by trying to get her back. I’d rather die than do the same thing to Kennedy, so if she’s happy with Alec, I’ll force myself to be happy for her.
She stares back at me, clearly in shock as I quickly pick up her books and hand them to her. As she takes them from me, our hands touch, and my body reacts to the feel of her skin on my own.
The same way it always has.
The same way it always will.
Seeing her now, my body hurts—literally yearns to pull her back into my arms and just hold her there, never letting her go. But I can’t let myself do that. Not anymore.
I go to walk away, to leave her alone like I swore to myself I would, but she stops me with a call of my name.
“I actually need to talk to you about something,” she says with a sigh.
The air around me feels too thick, standing here with her, but I swallow it down. “Everything okay?”
“Uh, yeah. I guess,” she mutters, looking anywhere except back at me. “I, uh…fuck.”
A part of me wonders if she’s just trying to keep me around. Keep my attention on her. Like ignoring her the past week was drawing her back to me. But if I’ve learned anything the last week, it’s that she’s better off without me.
Where I can’t ruin her life.
Letting out a huff, I know I’m going to hate myself for this. “Can you just say what it is you want to say? I have places to be.”
She narrows her eyes at me. “It’s not that simple.”
“Sure it is. Your mouth forms words, and you say them,” I spit. “Just tell me.”
“Easton,” she breathes, and I’m even more sure she just wants to keep me here as long as possible.
I roll my eyes. “Fuck it, then. I’ve got to go.”
“I’m pregnant,” she announces, freezing up as she realizes the way she just blurted out that crucial information. “According to the doctor, about twelve weeks.”
Her words hit me right in the chest.
Pregnant.
She’s pregnant.
And twelve weeks means it’s mine. There’s no way it can’t be, unless she cheated. No. Kennedy is a lot of things, but a cheater is not one of them. That only leaves one person to be the father.
Me.
“Y-you’re…”
Everything starts to spin as the reality sets in that I’m going to be a father. The nausea from my hangover builds in my throat and threatens to bubble over. I try to hold it back. Try to keep it in. But there’s nothing I can do.
It all happens in a millisecond. I attempt to turn away but she puts her hand on my arm, keeping me in place as she looks at me in bewilderment.
I’m stuck.
There’s nowhere to go.
Nothing I can do.
And that’s when it goes wrong.
I bend over, emptying the contents of my stomach all over the ground and Kennedy’s favorite pair of boots. She gasps, holding her books close to her chest and not looking down for a moment. She doesn’t need to. It’s no mystery as to what just happened.
“Fuck,” I groan. “Kennedy, I am so sorry.”
“It’s fine,” she snips, showing it’s most definitely not fine.
As she takes a step away, I stop her. “At least let me help you clean up.”
“No,” she barks. “Trust me. You’ve done enough.”
With that, she practically runs back toward her dorm, not sparing so much as a glance back at me.
I fucked up again.

Fire & SilkFire & Silk by Melissa Toppen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Everything about this book makes it more than a 5 star review for me. I loved all the twist and turns that kept me on my toes throughout the book. Gosh….Melissa Toppen did such an amazing job writing and making me fall for the cartel boss. Mateo and Mila’s story was so freaking good that I couldn’t put it down and it kept me up into the wee hours of the morning reading. The steamy chemistry between these two set pages on fire and the suspense kept me turning those pages turning. I loved these two characters so much. Mateo is the big bad wolf with a soft side that we get to see that made it hard for me to hate him. Mila is such a bada$$. I loved her fight and her sassiness. I honestly could go on and on of just how much that I loved this book, but I will just say that this is a MUST READ!! I hope to see more of this kind of writing and books from this amazing author. Thanks Melissa for such a great read!!!

Happy Reading Everyone!!!

✞Release Blast w/Review ✞ THUMPER by Marie James✞

 Release Date: June 24

As the fixer for Blackbridge Security, Quinten Lake is the man that comes in and cleans up after people make stupid decisions.

Which means he didn’t want to be the one teaching lustful women gun safety.

There were guys on the team better suited for the task.

Get in and get out, that’s his motto, something he lives by not only at work but also in his personal life.

And he could be doing just that if it weren’t for the internet.

But if #BlackbridgeSpecial wasn’t trending online he would’ve never met Hayden Prescott. 

He wouldn’t be wondering why she won’t make eye contact with him.

He’s supposed to teach her the skills to protect herself, but his ego is encouraging him to be her means of protection.

She isn’t impressed, and he’s left wondering if she’ll ever open her eyes and finally see him.

Meet Marie James


Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

Thumper (Cerberus MC, #17)Thumper by Marie James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I have always loved Thumper but now to get his story………ahhhhh!

When Cara is taken she knows bad things are coming. What she doesn’t expect is the one who has bought her to be so nice to her. She’s already seen some horrible things and really doesn’t understand what is going on. Finally she has a chance at freedom and takes it. Only she doesn’t know that her days with her capture aren’t over.

I loved Cara and Javier ( Thumper) story. It’s emotional, sweet and also sexy. Thumper is a true Cerberus man and I absolutely love him. Great story!

EXCERPT
This is what life looks like when you’re in love with someone who is actively lost in their addiction. The worst is always to be assumed because the worst is what always happens. An overdose is inevitable and the fatal consequence is probable. You can’t live your entire life being addicted to heroin and not expect it to kill you eventually.
And when you’re on the other side, the side that is simply on the outside looking in, you can’t help but watch in slow motion as it all unfolds. Since I met Ander, my life took a turn for the worst and I was thrust into the darkness without a light to guide me. Our relationship was riddled with lies and broken promises, all wrapped neatly with a bow laced with bad news.
I’m deflated. Any small glimmer of hope or happiness that I was once feeling is stolen within an instance.
“What if something happened to him?” My words come out as a whisper and tears prick the corners of my eyes.
I begin to hyperventilate as the tears pour from my eyes. I can’t breathe. I’m suffocating in my sorrow. Before, I thought that I had known what it felt like to drown. I drowned in the waves of Ander, and I learned how to breathe underwater. But this—this is something that I don’t know how to handle.
I can’t fucking breathe.

Poison Laced Truths (In Vein, #4)Poison Laced Truths by C.M. Radcliff
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The book that I’ve been waiting on is finally here and I must admit that I was a little nervous going into it. Because I have been so invested in this series from the very first book. I wanted to believe that Ander could overcome his demons, but he always seemed to let those demons win. Ander didn’t want to give into the demons, he wanted to do better, but as we learned in the series those demons was hard as hell to fight off. I seen them through his eyes and I saw them through the other characters eyes. Ander and Hadley’s story was such a roller coaster ride of emotions, but it was totally worth it in the end. Ander was so broken and he won my heart from the beginning that I just couldn’t give up on him or Hadley for that matter. Their story did a number on me because I felt their love for each other and the demons that Ander faced everyday. C.M. Radcliff did such an amazing job drawing me into their story and making me feel every emotion that all these characters went through when dealing with Ander and his demons. Addiction is such a hell of a battle for all that is involved and this author did an amazing job writing it and making these characters come alive on every page turned. This series was worth every minute invested. Thanks C.M. for taking me on this journey with these characters and can’t wait to see what next for us readers.

Happy Reading Everyone!!!!
