They’re waiting for you.

Those four words should have been a warning. They should have filled Violet with dread. But she was so focused on Rafe’s disappearance, she forgot.

The resistance was supposed to be fighting for a better world. A group of freedom fighters formed during the Monarch War, pushing back against laws that would see everyone enslaved. For a while there, they gave hope.

But with power comes corruption. The Society has been quietly amassing the strength and backing to become a real threat, and not everyone wants to use that power for good.

In a world torn apart by the death of monarchs, new leaders rise. Violet dives headfirst into the viper’s nest with one singular goal: rescue the stolen prince who possesses half her heart.

With the unwavering support of Jordan at her side, Violet knows she can face whatever the resistance throws at them. Even if she was the intended target all along.

Keep your friends close.
Keep your enemies closer.
Never forget the betrayals of the past.

The end of an era is here.


The third and final of Arbon Academy! With Violet, Raf, and Jordan, the action never ends. The book starts off right where our cliffhanger from book 1 left off and it just takes it up a notch from there. The action starts and never ends! Not as much Violence from Vi this book but I think it’s because she went all soft on us and caught some feelings for those princes. You know she did, she fricken kidnapped one of the kidnappers and made him take her to Raf. Oh and then there is the surprise from her past….ugh. The triggers for this book are not so bad, I just feel bad for Vi. What really traversed into her life, it was so unexpected! Don’t want to give away too many spoilers! Just lots of action, drama, STEAM, and love. HEA for sure. Noah and Massey are are still the duo twins and I’m kinda hoping for some standalones of Noah and Massey/Zach! Those two could run the world if they really put their minds to it. This book also has a lot of heartfelt mom moments between Vi and Jax, aka, the Queen. Vi really gets to see what a mom is supposed to do. AND Vi gets to spend some quality time in the springs again. 😉 The ending will make you cry, oh poor VI! I really felt for her in the last chapter, I really did. It was very heartbreaking and sad but the three of them will have their HEA!

Book Review: Heartbreak Prince

Book Review: Heartbreak Prince
Heartbreak-Prince

Blurb

Soulmates. I believe in them. I was lucky enough to have two of them at one point.

The only problem. My soulmates happened to be twin brothers.
Caiden was the light to Jackson’s dark. And after all that I had been through, the light was what I thought I needed.

When I chose Caiden, I lost Jackson.

Feeling like half a person after Jackson left, I barely survived when tragedy struck and I lost Caiden too.

It took me years to admit to myself that I had chosen wrong from the beginning. I’m ready to admit it to Jackson…only problem, he hates me.

I’m ready to fight for my happily ever after.

But there’s a reason they call him the Heartbreak Prince.


I saw the email for an upcoming book earlier this summer and I have been waiting for Heartbreak Prince by C.R. Jane to come out forever! I was graced with an ARC and could not be happier with the outcome of this story! It was ugly cry and ALL THE FEELS right off the bat! I thought I needed to just stay by my kleenex box the whole time.

Everly, Jackson and Caiden’s story brought such emotion. Everly is in love with both twins but obviously loves Jackson more than Caiden. I think C. R. Jane did a really good job at jumping back at forth throughout the timelines. You got a little of each story at a time and the drama just kept unfolding. I figured the ending was going to be a cliffhanger with a huge setup and I wasn’t disappointed at all!

You think you know Caiden, but do you really? And right when Jackson makes a decision, what will Everly do!? AHH this was heartbreak, emotion, ugly cry, so good!

Sizzle Factor: 4 out of 5

There are some steamy scenes but I think book two will have even more!

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

Book Review: Dirty Girls

Book Review: Dirty Girls

Blurb

They were the boys any good girl knew to avoid.

Rich and privileged.
Gorgeous and cruel.
The poster boys for rebellion…their tongues so sharp they cut to the bone.

We worshipped them despite their dangerous games.
We laughed even as we cried.
It was all fun and games until the first dirty girl died.

Now, as the bodies pile up, I believe I can endure their wicked ways. Only time will tell if I’ll escape.

Because when wealthy boys are accustomed to getting everything they want, not even the lives of those around them are too high an asking price.


Dirty Girls by Lily White is helping with my fascination with serial killers apparently. This is a murder, mystery, romance that makes you want to shake Olive half the time! After their parents death, Nolan drops out of school to raise Olive. He’s being selfless and putting her education in front of his own dreams but then Soren comes back into the picture.

Ah Soren. The hot guy that every one wants to be and every girl wants to bang. He is the center of attention and runs the pledges. When he is released from prison that is exactly what he plans to do. But who would want to pledge and do the things these guys make them do?! Ahh young people, I don’t understand them.

Olive doesn’t want to be a part of the in-crowd. She just so happened to sleep with Soren before he went away and doesn’t want to be a part of him anymore. But Soren has other plans for little Olly. He plans to rule her every moment all while girls are being killed around them.

I wouldn’t consider this book a trigger but some of the killings are detailed and might be disturbing for some people.

When Olive decides she’s old enough to be an adult, Nolan disappears and we don’t know if he is dead or alive. Apparently he’s fine even though he won’t answer Olives desperate attempts to hear from him. If I were Olive, I would have left and just said screw it and left, no reason to stay. Olive is a little meek and just wants to be left alone, but at the same time, she wants Soren.

I felt like the ending was a little rushed but overall really enjoyed the book. Olive is pushed to her limit while thinking she is being kidnapped. We find out who the serial killer is but I wish that scene had played out more. It was just an after thought and the book wrapped up. I enjoyed the ending but was a little disappointed after all that anticipation.
