This week our Author Spolight is from J. Bree, the extremely talented Hannaford prep queen. J. Bree just finished up her first series with To the End: Hannaford Prep Year Four. If you haven’t started this series yet, you need to! A few spin off series are in the works and you won’t want to miss out on what happens! This is definitively an upcoming author that you will want to keep your eye on!

Onto the Questions! Thank you again J. Bree for answering our questions! We really appreciate it!

Q: What got you into witting? A: I am a voracious reader and daydreamer, there has never been a time in my life that I haven’t been tinkering with an idea.

Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: This question is too hard to answer because I have HUNDREDS of favorite books lol.

Q: Why write high school bully romance stories vs others? A: I had the characters in my mind for a while and the ghost of an idea and then I read three books that helped me figure it all out: the Rich Boys of Burberry Prep series by CM Stunich, The Rebel of Raleigh High by Callie Hart, and Broken Wings by Tate James and Jaymin Eve. 

Q: What is your favorite character from your books? (Or another book/series) A:  My favorite characters change depending on who I’m writing but if I HAD to choose I would say either Lips or Nate. They are very interesting to play with, I love the ride or die, no prisoners, cutthroat ways they both have.

Q: How did you come up with the characters from the Hannaford prep series? A: Characters always walk into my head and take it over. That’s just a part of my process, I can’t explain it lol.

Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? About writing bully romance? A: Time is always the hardest thing. I have two under four so finding time is always hard. I have a lot of time to think thing through though so when I do finally get to sit at my laptop I can usually knock out a couple of chapters very quickly.

Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Read a lot and read critically. What do you like, what have the authors done well, what would you do differently. I ask this in every book I read.

Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: In my writing cave while my kids are out lol.

Q: What is your favorite food? A:  Melbourne, in another life I’d live there.

Q: What is your favorite food? A: Chocolate, I’m a total whore for chocolate.

Q:What is coming next from you? A: The Butcher of the Bay Part I, Illi and Odie’s backstory. I’m very excited to share it with my readers

Blurb

After surviving foster care and a high school that breeds gang members and drug dealers I’ve finally found my path to freedom: emancipation and a full ride scholarship at the ultra-exclusive Hannaford Prep.

All I have to do is survive.

After attracting the wrong sort of attention from the richest boy in the country, pissing off the hottest guy in school and being humiliated in front of my favorite rock idol I am now the target of the most popular, and cruelest, group in the freshman class.

They want my blood.
They can have it.
I’m stronger than any spoilt rich kid.

But can I survive the game the Juniors have started with me as the goal? Now every boy at Hannaford wants to have me.

All except the three I want.

Ash, Harley, and Blaise don’t care about the game, all they care about is destroying me.


Just Drop Out by J. Bree is an action packed book with drama, twists, and of course, bullies. This is an academy bully-romance book that you will want to binge all three books that are currently out with the fourth coming out soon! This book was released sometime in 2019 and just appeared in my Kindle suggestions, and I’m so glad that it did!

I would consider this first book a slow burn because we get more of the bully aspect from our harem in the first book. Our main lady is, Eclipse (Lips) who is a badass for real. She could cut you up into little pieces and you wouldn’t know what happened until it is over. While her assassin side is kept secret because she just wants a normal life for once, she keeps getting sucked back into her duties as “The Wolf”. How cool is that, she has her own secrete persona!

Lips wants a normal life, but can she really have it? She has this box, that she keeps hidden. And in this box are these mysterious diamonds. These diamonds are favors. I just love all the mystery around this book.

Ash, Harley, and Blaise give Lips attitude from the beginning and don’t want to waste their time on her, but Lips just draws people in. While we don’t get as much steamy action during this first book, it’s the build up that keeps us interested, right? 😉 This first book was great and wait until you read the next two. I can’t wait to see what happens to Lips and her men!

BLURB

Death marked her from her very first breath.

Being sired by a Madrid is supposed to be a blessing, but for Tempest, it’s a curse that leaves her orphaned, penniless, and enslaved to a blood thirsty crown on the brink of war.

Found too unruly to become a ward of the court, she’s thrust into the care of the King’s Hounds – the assassins and warriors responsible for protecting the kingdom. Driven by rage and an oath to avenge her mother’s memory, Tempest throws herself into training.

But becoming the first ever female assassin isn’t enough. Now, she must obtain the heart of her kingdom’s most feared enemy – the jester – a deadly shapeshifter hidden in a land twisted by myth and darkness.

Revenge is never easy or cheap. Tempest is willing to sacrifice everything to see justice served. Even her own soul and freedom.


The Hunt ( The Twisted Kingdoms Book 1) by Frost Kay was amazing, action packed from the start, this is book 1 of 2 with book releasing in August.

Tempest is our staring lady in The Hunt. Fiery and bad-ass. She has a quick mouth which gets her in more trouble when it doesn’t know when to stay shut.

Tempest lost her mother at the age of 5 where she is found by other Madrid, a royal race. She is raised by men, her “uncles” in the ways of the Hounds to be an assassin for her Kingdom. To prove her worth, and fight off the advances of the creepy King, she must find and kill the illusive Jester.

*****SPOILERS******

Pyre, is the leading man of the Hunt and unbeknownst to Tempest just the man she is looking for. Our hunk of a man is the kinstue shiftier Jester that she has been tasked to hunt and kill.

Temp ends up being chased in the woods by Pyre’s men and becoming severely injured – she now must put her trust in a shiftier – when every instinct is telling her to run.

I really liked this book. It twists and different perspectives of both Temp and Pyre keep you on your toes. I hate the book hangover – but cannot wait for book 2 to come out.
