Hate me and tell me I’m wrong.

How many times must I remind her?
It can’t matter that I am the person who ruined her life.

The constant shadow that watches her sleep.
The lover who prefers dirty alleyways to freshly laundered sheets

I’m the worst thing for her, yet I’m the only salvation she knows.
He had his chance to make her happy.
He failed.

Not like I know her.

I am her stalker.
Her protector.
And the only man that can bring her back to life.

<b>Review of Charlie by Siobhan Davis</b>

Can I just say that Siobhan has made me adore a guy I hated. Charlie was not my favorite person after reading Rydeville Elite. He had so many ulterior motives. He did so many bad things, but they were done out of protectiveness and love that I now completely understand.

Charlie has mad so many bad decisions in his life and has so much guilt. He knows Abby, his friends and family will never forgive him. He’s failed at everything, especially with Demi. The girl who he hates because she reminds him of what he lost, but he’s also drawn to her.

Demi this girl is a fighter. She’s given up so much in her life for her family. But it’s what you do for those you love. Sleeping with Carlie Barron was a mistake, a big mistake. But he lights a fire in her that she can’t deny, even if she hates him and his family.

These two had fantastic chemistry. Demi gave it right back to Charlie when he was a jerk to her. That lovely enemies to lovers chemistry that sizzles! They both are so attracted to one another there is no denying it. Soon that hate morphs into love, but of course Charlie can’t help when he screws it up again. Will Demi forgive him? Will she open her heart fully?

Man, there is a part where my heart broke for Demi. Yep crying and heart shredded. Charlie finally redeemed himself in my eyes and I was able to get those swoon worthy heart eyes going. He’s a jerk yes, but for those he loves he’ll move heaven and earth for. Especially Demi!

Siobhan as always your writing amazes me. The talent you have is astounding! Demi and Charlie took a hold of me and didn’t let go until that beautiful epilogue. Thank you for giving me glimpses of my favorite Elites!

<b>Make You Beg</b>

Dang Shantel why did you do that!! I was completely into the story and was on edge.

Henley saw something she shouldn’t have and turned her back on her best friends. Scout, Dax, Law and Rellik are going to destroy her for what she did. She was theirs, but then went and ruined everything.

Filled with mystery, lies and secrets that will hold you captivated. Give me more!!

<b>Hood River Rat</b>

This snippets/intros are killing me! Hood River Rat follow Hollis who has just come out to his family. He decision has destroyed his family. His mom took him and his sister and moved away from their father. Starting a new school Hollis soon meets Roan and the Hoodlams. They are the guys who rule the school and are about to show Hollis whose in charge.

If your are looking for a MM read, this is going to be a fantastic one. I can already tell that Hollis and Roan are going to have amazing chemistry. Hollis is not ashamed of who he is, but Roan is just starting to dip his toes in the water when he meets Hollis. He’s not sure what’s going on or why he’s reacting to him. Until they figure out where they stand with each other, it’s definitely going to be a interesting ride.

<b>The Original Bullet</b>

This is a prequel to Sunshine and Bullets. I haven’t read this series yet, but I do own it. So this is going to be moved up my list.

Summer/Sunshine is a girl who has everything and appearances are everything to her family. With an alcoholic mother and a police chief father, Summer is under a lot of pressure. When she meets Gavriel the new boy next door, she’s intrigued by him. But he sees through her mask and starts to bring out another side to her.

Gavriel has been sent to Chestrbrook after his dad is sent to prison. Growing up in a life of crime, he’s seen so much in his short life. This idyllic town is full of predictable people, but Sunshine is different and he wants to know why.

<b>Like You Care</b>

Kayden Snow holy crap! First time reading a book by you and I’m hooked. HOOKED! The opening had me right away.

Mena has been bullied all through school just because she looks a little different. She’s smart, talented, sweet and tries to stay under the radar, but we have a group of idiots who love to make her life hell. She meets her neighbor under disguise and feelings start to develop as they get to know one another without ever seeing each other in the light of day.

Tanner is mysterious. I need to know more now. I like that he doesn’t care what she looks like. He’s fallen for her based on their conversations. But will that all change once he discovers who she is? Will he fall in line with the bullies and destroy her too?

Review & Release Blitz: Lawless Kingdom by Natalie Bennett

Title: Lawless Kingdom
Series: Reign & Ruin Book One
Author: Natalie Bennett
Genre: Dark NA Mafia/Bully Romance
Release Date: March 24, 2020

One town.
One school.
One illicit affair that will span a lifetime.
When something is forbidden, it becomes maddeningly tempting.
Judas Barron, for example. Wicked blue blood and heir to a severely twisted cutthroat society.
Everyone knew who he was and what crew he ran with, a clandestine group of filthy rich kids surrounded by ominous secrets. Secrets that were rumored to be dark, dirty, and stained with blood.
It was never my intention to get tangled up with them, but Judas and I had a secret too, one he was determined to make sure I took with me to my grave, which meant keeping me by his side.
Now forced to be part of a savage coterie, I start to see his world through a new pair of eyes. It isn’t long before temptation becomes something dangerous and wild, breeding the sickest kind of infatuation.
And those secrets that Juda’s keeps? They’re about to tear my life apart.
* Originally published in the Nobel Savages Collection, this story has been partially rewritten and contains varying triggers.*

3.5 Stars

This is my first introduction into the world of Natalie Bennett. Lawless Kingdom centers around Rhiannon and Judas. My understanding is that this was included in an anthology, but Natalie added more content and rewrote some scenes. I do not know for a fact, but this is what I have heard.

Judas Barron, king of the world or at least the school. He’s arrogant, gorgeous, dark and something evil is lurking under all those pretty boy looks. I am intrigued by him for sure. Why does he want Rhiannon so much? What is going on with this family? I want answers as he is a bit cryptic.

Rhiannon sweet girl, but when push comes to shove and you piss her off, she shows her claws. I am having a bit of trouble with her just based on what has been going on around her for many many years. She has no clue, I find that hard to believe because us women have like seven senses and just know things. But I will give her the benefit because it seems things have been buried deep for a long time.

Anyway, right off the bat this starts with an very interesting and dark prologue. I thought okay, this is going to be good. As I read through the story, I felt like I was missing something. I just wasn’t getting the connection and why things were happening the way they were. I realize its the beginning and we are just being introduced to the characters and the story line, but it felt a bit choppy at times. I know, I know this has high reviews, but I guess I was just either not feeling it or something is missing.

However, I am intrigued by what is going on and the blurb for the next book sounds even more disturbing. So yeah I will be continuing because I have some questions. I want to see Rhiannon come into her own and demand the truth from everyone. They seem to all want something from her but not give her anything in return.

Also the rest of the cast Bri, Gavin and Owen. Yeah I want to know more about them.

Overall, this read was good at times, but then I felt like I was missing something. Natalie didn’t leave us with a HEA because yeah its about to go down. Is Rhiannon the wolf or the lamb? Is Judas going to live up to his name or is there some good underneath all that evil?

I am not sure how I would classify this book either. It has some bully elements, but its not. It has some enemies to lovers elements, but I am not sure it is. Right now its just a dark romance with a bunch of tropes thrown in until I can really get a feel.

With a penchant for (writing) villainous immoral men, and a tendency to deviate away from traditional happily ever afters, Natalie Bennett is an international bestselling author of twisted and unconventional love stories.
When she’s not slaying words she’s somewhere in the sunshine state, happily taking life one curve-ball at a time.

Blog Tour: Sugarcoated by Erin Nicholas

Sugarcoated - BT Banner.jpg

“You can always count on Erin Nicholas for fun, sexy contemporary romance.”―Melissa Foster, New York Times bestselling author

Sugarcoated, an all-new sexy and laugh-out-loud standalone romance from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas, is out now!

Sugarcoated300

She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s known her all his life. He’s practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point.

Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.

Now, that was a surprise.

Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no.

To say that he didn’t handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he’s going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever.

Right after he tells her that he’s bought the company that’s her bakery’s biggest competitor.

Maybe if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we’re-rivals-in-business-now thing.

So, first “I’m in love with you”, then “take off your clothes”, then “I’m now your business adversary”.

Piece of cake.

Excerpt:

“What?” she asked, her eyes wide and blinking. “You thought I’d just be waiting around for you to come back?”

“Yes!” It was the wrong answer, he knew, even as he said it. But it was true.

“You are so full of yourself!” She frowned. “You actually thought I’d be waiting around, pining for you, didn’t you?”

Maybe not crying herself to sleep every night, but thinking about him? Yeah. Fuck. He hadn’t been able to get her out of his mind for more than a few hours at a time. “It’s only been five months,” he said. “Is it really crazy for me to think that you didn’t get your virginity ‘taken care of’ yet?”

“Exactly! It’s been five months!” she said.

“You went twenty-five years without sex, and you couldn’t go five more months?”

“Well, it’s not like you gave me an IOU!” she shot back. “I had no idea when you were coming back, and I assumed your answer would have still been no. So yeah, I moved on, Aiden.”

“Who was it?” he asked, noting his tone was suddenly a little ominous.

“I’m not telling you that.” She looked at him like he was insane.

“Tell me, Zoe.”

No.”

“I’ll find out. This is Appleby. I’ll probably know by the end of tonight.”

“You won’t.” She lifted her chin. “I can promise you that.”

“Bet I do.”

“Why do you really even care? Now you don’t have to do it.”

“Because you’re mine.”

Yeah, shit. See, he’d known that was the wrong answer to give. Guys didn’t go around claiming women like they were property or possessions. He knew that. He’d never had that urge before. This woman was strong and independent and confident and certainly didn’t need him for anything.

But the idea of another man touching her, seeing her naked, making her feel the ultimate pleasure, made his blood boil.

She stood, just staring at him. Then she picked up a cake ball. And threw it at him. It hit him square in the red tie and bounced back onto the table.

“You’re a jerk.”

Yeah, maybe he was. A nice guy would probably just take all her explanations and excuses about why they shouldn’t be together and admit his idea was crazy.

He didn’t say anything. He didn’t wipe away the sticky crumbs the cake ball left on his tie. He picked up the ball and rounded the worktable.

Her eyes widened, and she backed up as he came closer. He kept going. Until her back was against the front of the fridge.

He didn’t say a word as he stopped right in front of her, lifted his hand to cup her face, and leaned in.

Aiden ignored her hands on his chest. She wasn’t pushing. She wasn’t pulling him closer either, but she wasn’t trying to get away. She wasn’t lifting her knee to his balls. She wasn’t saying no.

He stared into her eyes for a long moment. She could stop this. He knew she knew that.

She didn’t.

So he kissed her.

Review & Blog Tour: Pike by T.M. Frazier

Pike - BT banner

“T.M. Frazier sucks me in every time with her incredible storytelling.”- Meghan March, New York Times bestselling author

Pike, the first dark and fast-paced story in The Pawn Duet from USA Today bestselling author T.M. Frazier, is available now!

PIKE FRONT COVER

I was raised by the violent laws of the streets, spilling blood without the hindrance of useless emotions or connections.

Unfeeling. Unloved. Alone.

My life was perfect.

Until her.

While on a manhunt for a mysterious enemy, one hellbent on taking both my business and my life, I find Mickey. She’s covered in mud, rambling nonsense, and clearly out of her mind.

She’s also a distraction I don’t need.

That is until I discover a connection between the girl and my enemy.

Mickey isn’t a distraction anymore.

She’s the perfect weapon.

One I’ll use to exact my revenge.

The plan is an easy one, but there’s something about Mickey that’s making it more and more difficult.

A familiarity I can’t place. A need I can’t explain.

A want I have to deny.

After all, she’s not mine to keep. She’s a tool. My pawn.

My sacrifice.

Excerpt

I raise the gun in both hands, aiming it at his chest. “I have to go. You can’t stop me,” I say, with all the resolve I have left. “You’re going to trade me and ambush them, but don’t you think they have the same plans for you? I have to go, and that way, fewer people will die. YOU won’t die. So, just let me leave. I have a plan. It will work. I’ll take them down for both of us.”

“No.” Pike looks from me to the gun. “And as I’ve told you before, you’re not going anywhere.” His words are dark and menacing. An amused smile turns up the corners of his lips.

It’s infuriating. He’s infuriating.

I straighten my shoulders. “What’s so funny?” I ask, swallowing down the rising fear in my throat. I remind myself of one important fact to keep from choking on that fear.

I’m the one holding the gun.

Instead of freezing or retreating as one would do in this situation, Pike takes a bold step forward, catching me off guard. I stagger backward, but I’m not fast enough. He reaches out, and at first, I think he’s going for the weapon, but he doesn’t. He confuses me as he wraps his hands around mine, tightening my grip around the gun. He lifts my hands and bends slightly at the waist, forcefully pressing the barrel against his forehead. “You wanna shoot me, Mic? Then, fucking shoot me,” he dares, with wild blood shoot eyes.

My mouth drops open, but words don’t come out. I expected Pike to defend himself. To come at me. To step aside and let me leave, even though it was the least possible of all the outcomes. I didn’t plan for this.

I can do this. I have to do this.

“Not what you were expecting?” His tone is both mocking and rage-filled. “I know what that pretty brain of yours is thinking. You want me to attack you and make pulling the trigger easier on that conscious of yours.” He bites out a laugh. “Not gonna happen. If you want to do this, I’m not going to stand in your way, but you’re not fucking leaving either. So, come on. Shoot me. Go ahead. Do what you planned to do.” His eyes narrow with determination. My hands shake in his. “Pull the fucking trigger!”

The air around us is thick and charged. My skin breaks out in a sheen of sweat. My adrenaline spikes and I feel all too alert. Too aware of what’s taking place between us.

I grip the gun tighter and gaze into his dark eyes, his pupils are large and covering every hint of color within them. Behind the anger and determination, there’s something else that I didn’t expect. Something that I’m all too familiar with. Hurt. Pain that mirrors my own. Desperation that calls out to me like a piece of my soul trapped within Pike.

“Shoot me!” he cries, his face red with anger, teeth bared like a wild animal. “Fucking shoot me!”

With those words, my fiery resolve dissolves into ash.

I step back, needing to put some distance between us, but Pike doesn’t have the same thought. He follows me backward, keeping his grip tight on my hands and the gun between them.

“I…I can’t do this,” I whisper, releasing my grip on the gun.

Pike releases his hold on me, catching the gun before it can fall to the floor.

Shit.

I look to the window, but it’s too high, and Pike is directly in front of the only door. There’s no escape. So much for being brave. Instead, I’ve signed my own death warrant. My heart races erratically with the realization that this is it. It’s over.

I’m over.

“This was a really stupid fucking move for someone who claims to be so smart, ” Pike sneers. He raises the gun.

I pinch my eyes shut, waiting for the feel the bullet of his wrath to pierce my skin. I hear a thud, and my eyes fly open and land on the carpet where Pike’s tossed the gun to the floor.

My eyes meet his in silent question. Why?

He answers by charging, a one-man stampede I can’t avoid as he barrels toward me. His chest crashes against mine, and my head connects with the wall with a thud that rattles my bones. I’m dizzy as fear lands in my gut like a ball of fire. My pulse races as his closeness consumes me. The smell of cologne and cigarettes lingers between us—a trace of whiskey on his breath.

“You’re going to regret not pulling that trigger,” he sneers. The darkness in Pike’s eyes tells me that, gun or no gun, I’m not getting out of this unpunished.

Or possibly even alive.

I swallow hard.

He cages me in with his hands against the wall beside me, engulfing me in the heat and rage radiating from his hard body. I feel his heart beating fast beneath his chest now pressed against mine. “What to do with you now?” Pike muses, his breath ragged. His voice full of promise and warning. He brushes his lips over my temple. I tremble at the contact. “You’re going to pay for that little stunt, Mic.”

He’s close. Too close. I’m entirely rigid, frozen in place. This wasn’t supposed to happen. How did I let this happen? I’m the most terrified I’ve ever been, and yet there’s something else I can’t understand. Something else between us that’s charging the air, causing me to shake, and it’s not just from fear. Hatred mixed with need. The yearning I’ve denied for him is no longer lying dormant. It’s as real as the ache growing in my stomach, the wetness between my thighs. If I thought the room felt charged before, it’s damn near on fire now. The flames of desire and hate lick at the walls around us, setting everything ablaze, making the small room feel smaller, closing in around us.

My nipples harden as they brush against his chest. I suck in a gasp.

He doesn’t miss my reaction. He looks to where my nipples are straining against my shirt with heated eyes.

The only sound in the room is our mutual heavy breathing as he slowly pulls his gaze from my chest. His eyes lock on mine. For a few seconds, we just stare at each other—foreheads lined with confusion and anger.

A silent dare.

My mind, on the other hand, is anything but silent.

“Should I kill you or fuck you?” he muses. And I’m honestly not sure what scares me more. His anger or his desire. He brushes the backs of his knuckles against my jaw. “Maybe, both.”

“What do you—” I don’t have time to finish my question because his lips are on mine. He hoists me in the air, and my legs wrap around his waist on instinct.

It’s an angry joining of clacking teeth and biting lips. A war we are still fighting both with each other and ourselves. He growls at me when I pierce his lip, drawing blood. He licks the blood with his tongue then kisses me again, this time harder. A punishing kiss that has me growling at him in return. His coppery blood on my tongue tastes like victory. He licks his way between my lips, pushing his tongue into my mouth, licking and devouring with rough determined strokes. With a jerk of his hips, he presses the massive erection beneath his jeans between my legs, the pleasure that courses through me has me momentary seeing stars. I grind down on him in return.

He hisses in response, baring his teeth against my lips. “You’re going to pay for that, Mic,” he warns, taking my mouth in another kiss that has us grunting and growling at one another like starved animals fighting over the last scrap of food. But neither of us is about to give up. He pushes me back onto the bed, falling with me over my body, my legs splayed on both sides of his hips as he presses his cock again between my legs. I arch my back, needing to feel more. Needing for there to be nothing between us but desire. For each other, and to win. But, this is no longer a game we’re playing. It’s a battle. A war neither of us can win.

But, one in which we will both go down fighting.

4.5 Stars!!

Hold on to your panties ladies and gents, T.m. Frazier is back! Welcome to Logan’s Beach where being bad is being good. A town where power is everything. A place where I want to go because it’s where we have King, Bear, Preppy, Nine and now Pike! Seriously another alpha male yumminess to add to the mix.

This is story told from Dual POV’s and is filled with revenge, suspense, mystery, ahh hell you make it we get it. I am so excited for this. We get a few cameos…King and Samuel MF Clearwater. Be prepared because anything with Preppy is sure to make you giggle a bit.

<b>The villain of my story looks like an angry angel.</b>

Pike was abandoned at a young age. He grew up in chaos and learned to survive on his own. He doesn’t believe in the law unless it’s the outlaw lifestyle. Blood and violence is what he knows. He’s an outcast and that’s the life he chooses. Who knew that four years ago his life was going to have a blip on it that would change the future? Now she’s back and is a distraction that Pike can’t afford right now. Yet he can’t let her go. He’s drawn to her innocence or is it all a plan to keep Pike busy?

<b>When it comes to this girl, my instincts are at war. One tells me to punish. The other to protect. Only one can win.</b>

Four years ago at the age of nineteen, Mickey’s life seemed to be picture perfect. Sure she was a bit odd, super high IQ, just not the normal teen. But she had the love of her parents and three sisters. Everything was great until everything wasn’t and it was all taken from her. With the help of a stranger, Mickey is sure she’s safe. But then life is cruel and you don’t always get what you want. Four years later and many plans laid into place Mickey is out for revenge. Revenge that ends up dropping the familiar stranger into her lap again. Now she must figure out a way to save his life, even if she loses hers.

Well dang! The intensity at times between them had me on edge. They both seem to feed off one another’s energy at times. The can read one another almost as if they can see into each other’s minds. They push and pull against one another, and that makes the chemistry sizzle. See Intense!

Pike is definitely alpha male. He’s got so many secrets, but underneath all that tough exterior he’s got a huge heart. He wants Mickey, but he’s denying himself because she’s a chess piece in this game. Or is it all a lie?

Mickey was so awkward. Yet I couldn’t help but love those moments and her little quirks. She has her heart set on make those burn for what they done to her. She’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing and I’m excited to see her unleash her rage.

Of course this ends in a cliffhanger and what a way to end that. One simple word I wasn’t expecting and shocked me. What?!?! This is going to be an interesting tale and I’m ready for some blood to be spilled. Because it’s Logan’s Beach and <b>It’s a town made up of equal parts sand and sadists. Beach and blood. Saltwater and sins. Canals and chaos.</b>

T.m. Frazier I don’t know where you come up with your ideas, but you always land the mark for exactly what I’m wanting at the moment. Your descriptions are on point, your characters weave their way into my soul and the stories always grab my heart.

One last note, the cover. Yeah that is so my Pike. Fits so perfectly. 4.5 Stars

I go to the fridge in search of water. Just as I grab one of the bottles, the sound of someone behind me catches me off guard.
“You lost?” He asks, and goose bumps raise across my skin as I recognize that voice. I straighten up and turn around, coming face to face with the guy who has plagued my mind for the last couple weeks. Knox Vaughn. “Keg is over there.” His head nods toward the crowd in the corner of the room.
“Oh, n-no I’m okay,” I mutter. “I just wanted water.”
He snorts and stares at the bottle in my hand like it’s diseased. “Who comes to a party and drinks water?”
“Me, I guess.”
His gaze moves down to my cleavage and he leans back against the counter as he bites his lip. “Are you sure you don’t want me to get you a beer?”
I shake my head faster than necessary. “My dad said beer makes you fat.”
He raises his brows before his expression changes to a smirk that has my heart skipping beats. Grabbing the bottom of his shirt, he lifts it up to reveal perfectly toned abs. “Your daddy lied.”
For the first time in my life, the thoughts that run through my head are anything but innocent. The only thing I can think to do is get the hell out of here and as far away from him as possible. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what a guy like him looks for at these kinds of parties, and I’m nothing like the girls here.
