Harkwright Academy, the place where dreams can come true.

A three year stay will award you with an education that will rival any college and enough money to aid you in whatever career you choose to take.

I’m applying to give my mom the life she deserves, to fund my sister’s medical bills and so I can be sure to have the only thing I truly want.

For my family I will give them my time, my soul and my body, but I will never give them my heart. This place is going to test me and the guys very well could break me, but they won’t keep me down forever.

This is an 100k full length book that is part of a trilogy. It is a dark academy, which includes scenes of bullying. It is a why choose romance. Where the fmc will have more than one love interest.


What a book! BC Morgan! Wheew! I’m in love with these characters! This has a Royal Trials feel book to it and I love! Luna Carter is our MC on her way to Harkwright Academy where she must try and survive for a better life. The way to do this, is by getting a number and potentially marrying herself off to one of the Harwright men. In this year there are 15 men that she needs to impress. During her “inspection” this part was godawful. Not the writing, I just felt so bad for Luna! It made me all hot and bothered and all upset for her for the way the men were treating her. When the scores are reveled, Luna just can’t catch a break! While on her journey at Harkwright Academy, Luna finds some new friends, Liam the servant, Aernon the flirt who likes to watch her bake, and possible Tucker and Emmet. AND of course the prince himself, Mr. Dark and Moody who just seems to never be seen. A TON of twists and turns and a very captivating book! Can’t wait for book two, that cliffhanger with just give you a heart attack, Little Zero/My Star.

Breathe You

Blurb

Valentina Rossi.
She was our first and only love—our f*cking everything.
She was also the one who tore us apart and crushed our hearts into a pulp. After all these years, we three are still desperately trying to fix the mess she made of us. Even if that meant pretending she was just a childish memory, pushed to the confinements of our mind, just so we could survive without her.
But now she’s back.
Demanding we give her what she stole from us to begin with; our very souls.
But behind her tempting proposal, there is an underlying despair.
We all feel it. We can even taste the bitter melancholy with each kiss we steal from her.
Valentina ripped our hearts out when we were still too dumb and stupid to know any better.
Now I fear if we give in to her again, there will be no coming back from the heartbreak that awaits all of us.
She will end up killing what’s left of us, with every last breath she takes.
And I’m not sure any of us can stop it.


What a heart wrenching closure! Breathe You by CR Jane and Ivy Fox created a roller coaster world for us to dive into. This book had me crying until the very last page! Literally, I just wasn’t sure if it was going to end and then bam…it’s done. I can’t write enough about how much I love these two authors and the characters they made in the Breathe You Duet. My Heart, My Soul, My Life, Logan Carter and Quaid were Vals everything. This book starts up right where book 1 ended. The power of love can bring people together, but can they stay? Val still has secrets and she is getting worse while the guys are falling in love with her even more. They are each dreaming of living a life with Val, planning to be together forever.

“I will love you for all my life”

And what an ending. So emotional and devouring of life. You will get those tingle under you nose when you read this and the sniffles will come! Huge 5 starts for these ladies!

Book Review: The Butcher of the Bay

Book Review: The Butcher of the Bay

Blurb

My life was simple: I kill for money and I’m the best in the Bay at my job.

That was enough for me until I met the woman of my dreams, only to deliver her to hell itself for a pretty penny.

Nothing will stop me from getting her back and when I do… there isn’t a man in the Bay that’s safe from my vengeance.

They’ll pay in blood for their crimes.


Just going to say this…you need the Butcher in your life. Illie’s love for Odie is 1000% over the moon right off the bat. I need a man like this in my life. So what if he might have a hidden basement where he tortures people to death….he puts Odie first and will go to the end of the earth for her. 

One thing, this book won’t be for everyone. Even if you did fall in love with Lips and her harem in the Hannaford Prep series, The Butcher has many triggers, violence, unconsentual sexual encounters, so like I said, it’s not going to be everyones cup of tea. And these scenes are detailed. That is why I love J. Bree, she creates whole worlds for us to read and live through. You really get to see what makes Illie tick in this book and it brings to light how and why he acted in JDO. I LOVED that Lips makes multiple appearances in this book! She is so little and you get a feeling of how she survive and became the assassin she is in JDO!

After you get over that, this book was just about drama, action, SO MUCH ACTION, and a love story that we all wanted to learn how it grew. I love Odie and Illie! I wasn’t expecting Odie to be the way she was written because I already had a certain idea in my head of how she was in JDO. BUT it’s great. She is her own person and she is strong willed. She gets beaten and broken but never gives up. I don’t know if I could be that strong. This book doesn’t have that many steamy scenes but I think book 2 will have more. This one is the tease before the big show!

Book Review: Hate

Book Review: Hate
Hate-Tate James

Blurb

“Madison Kate Danvers was murdered tonight.” 

Those words changed my life, and not for the better. 

They were wrong, of course. I wasn’t dead. But I was set up. 

After being charged with a string of offences–and made an example of by my political minded father–I’m eventually released back into Shadow Grove with one thing on my mind.

Hate. 

Someone is going to pay for derailing my carefully laid out future. Someone is going to catch the full force of my hate. How very convenient that someone just moved into the bedroom down the hall from me.

Archer D’Ath and his boys messed with the wrong chick and they’re about to learn just how cold Madison Kate’s hate can run.

HATE is a full length mature college/new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. This is a reverse harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book one of four in the series.


OMG! JUST OMG! I love Tate James, little bit of a lady crush, she knows it. This book was everything. The silent reverse harem that just sneaks up on you! Madison Kate, what a mouth full of a name, you know she is trouble. After her mother dies on Halloween, the night just isn’t the same for her. Thus, MK finds herself at a MMA underground fight and all hell breaks loose when a shot fires and a girl ends up being killed. Was the bullet for MK though? She looked just like her. I feel bad for MK, there is so much mystery in this book and it’s killing me! Now we have the guys, Kody, Steele, and Archer. They all have their successful lives after the night that changed everything for MK and her reputation is ruined. AND they live with her now! HA! I would be epically pissed off as well. This book has a lot of steam, RH action, and lots of WHYS! Of course we get the cliffhanger and it was soooo good. I almost didn’t want to read this because I knew it would be. I just can’t! Loved it, read it and you will know why!

Book Review: See No Evil-The Society Book 1

They thought they could get away with it, but they are sorely mistaken.

They have been judged. They have been sentenced. All that remains is their execution.

No one goes unpunished. We’ll make sure of it.

We are The Society and all who dare cross us will find their miserable end by our hand.

Don’t be fooled. This is not their story.

It’s ours.

Finn

As long as I can remember, I’ve played by the rules.

On and off the football field, I’ve done everything that has been expected of me.

Until that fatal night.

Now my life and the lives of my best friends hang in the balance, hung there by a sadistic sinister shadow forcing us to do their will.

And it’s just my damn luck that I’m the first to be put on their butcher’s block.

I must prove my worth by eradicating a certain pebble in their shoe.

The order is simple.

To save ourselves, I must ruin another—a life for a life.

Meaning Stone Bennett’s life is about to be forfeited in exchange for my own.

The poor girl never stood a chance.

Stone

He’s all American perfection.

I’m the poster child for this country’s rejects.

He’s old Asheville money and privilege.

I’m the Southie eyesore people stay clear from.

He’s caviar dreams and champagne wishes.

I’m the trailer trash his momma probably warned him about.

I doubt it can get any further away from the elitist’s social spectrum than the two of us.

So why the hell is Finn Walker, Richfield’s football god, suddenly all in my face wanting my attention?

Nothing good can come from this.

I can feel it.

*The Society is an Enemies to Lovers, New Adult College Romance.

*Each book can be read as a standalone. However all four books in this series have an entwined subplot, that will only be resolved in the final book.

*Recommended 18+ due to mature language and situations.


See No Evil by Ivy Fox: You won’t want to put this book down. Just read it straight through, forget about food, work, everything! So much mystery. We found out through little tidbits that we wouldn’t get the whole story until after book 4, so it’s a little frustrating because there is SO MUCH MYSTERY! 

Our main four guys are Lincoln, Colt, Easton and Finn, and we find out at the beginning that they have a secrete that might just tare them apart because that secrete, someone knows about. To keep their secrete hidden they must complete a task, and this time it is Finn’s turn. He must befriend Stone and then ruin her. Why? Who knows, Stone is this kick-butt chick with tatts and a bad (awesome) attitude. She doesn’t care about the money, only getting out of here. 

You know how it goes, bad guy wants in, bad girl won’t let him, bad guy falls for bad girl. Then the betrayal. SO many FEELS! Fire, steam, chemistry, just all the things! Throughout the whole book you get a feel for how far the Society can reach, and their arms are LONG! This series is just gearing up to be one of those that you will re-read and keep finding new tells throughout the whole thing! Finn and Stones story might be over for now, but what will happen next?!

Book Review: Rebellion: The Sainthood-Boys of Lowell High

Book Review: Rebellion: The Sainthood-Boys of Lowell High

Blurb

Rebellion-Siobhan-Davis

Everything changed the night he betrayed me, and now, the game has entered a new level.

Galen did me a favor, reminding me the only person I can count on is myself, and I’m more determined than ever to avenge my father’s death and avoid the destiny Sinner has mapped out for me.

Saint is used to calling the shots, but there are new rules, my rules, and if he wants me in his life, and in his bed, he’ll toe the line. They all will, because I can’t pull this off alone, and they owe me.

Sinner thinks he’s in control, but forcing me into initiation plays right into my hands. War has come to Lowell as rival gangs battle The Sainthood for ultimate power, and I enjoy rebelling from the inside, placing more obstacles in Sinner’s path while I exact my revenge.

But I’m not some innocent thirteen-year-old anymore—I have blood on my hands and lethal enemies on my tail.

I’m playing a dangerous game, especially where my heart is concerned, but there’s no turning back. I haven’t come this far to walk away empty-handed, and the more secrets we uncover, the more we realize how far-reaching the betrayal and corruption extend, and there’s no choice anymore.

The Sainthood must be taken down, and we’re the only ones who can do it.

This is book two of three and it’s not a standalone read. Due to dark themes and content, this #whychoose romance is only recommended to readers aged eighteen and older.


Rebellion starts right up like it was the next page from Resurrection. Harlow is going to have to get herself out of this pickle if she wants to survive. The guys are freaking out and they know they have work to do because of what Galen did. I for sure wouldn’t want to open my heart again, I would think the same way she is, not wanting to trust and felt betrayed by her new lovers. Her broken heart needs to harden! And it does, but for how long? When you have these sexy as sin guys, Saint, Galen, Caz, and Theo, and a side of Diesel to rile the guys up, it’s going to be good! Harlow is now off to initiation and we get to see her in action a bit and how her training with Diesel has made her a killing machine. She proves that she is better than even the guys and things will be going her way now. This book has a lot of drama and action for you to read through. The guys are starting to be okay with actually sharing Harlow, but it’s not like they have a choice, they can’t go against her or she will just leave them. HA, like she actually would. Her and Caz, so sexy. She just puts Saint in his place. And oh the sexy scenes! We even get a few scenes from Theo! I love Theo the most. Heartbreaking end and cliffhanger. I was so sad!! Get Book 3, Reign, soon here!

Author-Spotlight-Serenity-Rayne

Serenity Rayne is a new, up and coming author, known mostly for her Aurora Marelup Series, that you are going to LOVE! She writes hectic, action packed, gory, reverse harems about shifters. If you like shifter books, fated mates, thrillers, then these books are for you! A little trigger waring, these books might not be for everyone. For someone who is obsessed with Halloween, being scared, loving the reality of the books, it was for me. Serenity is a down to earth Author and will answer any question you have, or just chit-chat about how much wine you’ve consumed throughout this quarantine. She is excited to hear from her fans and likes to interact with them on a daily basis. She is legit amazing and I can’t wait to see who comes next!

Onto the Interview!

Q: What got you into witting? A:To be perfectly honest with you I couldn’t find anything on the market that sparked my interest in the least bit. So I decided to write something that I was interested in. If it happened to take off then wonderful.

Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: Well that’s honestly a toss-up. I have Aurora series which is shifter paranormal reverse harem that falls on the side of thriller/horror. Then I have Once Upon a Raven that is a Edgar Allan Poe inspired book that is the first of many to come from the Poe inspired series I intend to write.

Q: What got you into writing thriller reverse harem books? A: Reverse harem is fun all by itself. But I tend to like my horror movies thriller action movies things of that nature so I brought that love and passion into my stories.

Q: What is your favorite character from your books? A: I’d have to say that Alaric and Jayce are my favorites from Aurora series. And Kol is my favorite from the Raven.

Q: How did you come up with the characters from the series? A: It honestly wasn’t that difficult. Aurora is basically me with none of the human restraints upon her. I took some of my favorite qualities that I thought were embodied by a specific animal and gave them to each of the mates.

Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? A: Honestly, It’s staying focused, and ignoring those that decide to nick pick and rip a book apart instead of enjoying it for what it is..

Q: About writing reverse harem? A: That’s actually a funny answer It’s more like when you have intimate moments with more than one mate in a scene. Keeping track of where all the limbs and appendages are and making sure that nothing is misplaced.

Q: Where do you get your inspiration to write supernatural/shifter books? A: As i said earlier I absolutely love horror movies. I grew up watching some of the old favorite black and white movies all the way up to current day.

Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Definitely find a good editor and proofreader for your novel. Do not trust and editing program to handle your document the same as a human would. A program cannot and will not ever understand how an emotion needs to be portrayed.

Q: What is your favorite writing spot? A: Usually I’m sitting on my bed. or or I’m going for a long walk and using my dictation program.

Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: I’m not a big fan of being around large groups of people. So anywhere that I can isolate and just enjoy myself is perfect vacation spot for me.

Q: What is your favorite food? A: I love extremely rare steak. I love sushi and sashimi. I love all sorts of Japanese and Indian cuisine. And I also enjoy cooking traditional German or Italian dishes.

Q: What is coming next from you? A:There’s actually a lot on the table currently. Just finished up book one of Hybrid Royals. Working on book five of Aurora’s series Welcome Home Little Wolf. After that I am probably going to be working on Jayce’s daughters series and my Bear Claw Ranch series that will feature two of Dimitri’s daughters and Ellis. I also have a Valkyrie series slated for 2021. There’s also a reverse harem vampire novel that I have outlined. There’s also going to be a three book series with Klaus’s daughter that will be reverse harem. There’s several other things that are in the works in the background The hybrid royal series is going to be four books when it’s completed and then there’s another four book series that is on the back burner currently.

Book Review: Coach Me

Book Review: Coach Me
Coach-Me-Shanora-Williams

Blurb

When I met Amber Lakes, I had no idea that she’d become a shining star in my dark, miserable life.
Her smile was never supposed to warm my heart, and the sight of her tears was never supposed to make me want to hunt down the person who’d caused them.
We were never supposed to touch, or kiss, or do so many dirty things on campus that I knew could jeopardize my career…
None of it was supposed to happen because she’s the student – my athlete – and I’m her college track coach. 
I could lose everything by being with her, but I’ve fallen too damn hard, and despite how big the risks are, it’s too late to turn back now.


Coach Me by Shanora Williams is a sweet, little bit of taboo, romance. Taboo because you have the track coach who doesn’t want to catch feelings for one of his athletics. Amber Lakes is an all-star track athlete who gets a chance at college track at BU University. Even though this is a basically “white” college, she doesn’t let that hinder her and goes for it anyways. Amber is of course, bullied by her fellow competitors and you get to see how she reacts, or doesn’t. The bullies are out to get her in this book and make to ruin her chances of running before the season is even started.

Coach Torres is trying to stay away. He knows nothing can happen. He needs to stay away. DON’T catch any feelings Torres, it won’t end well for you! JK, this book has an HEA that you are going to love!

I love that this books brings up discrimination and how both Amber and Coach Torres handles it. We don’t get to see this in enough books and Shanora did such a good job. This book has the steam, the feelings, the, WHY moments. LOVE it!

THE PUPPET

Borrow the bike. Win the race. Collect the cash. It should’ve been an easy job. Ran out of town with a broken leg and a lawsuit, my mother’s latest flame swoops in like a knight in gilded armor. Blackwood Keep is a place I don’t belong, and I’m not the only one who knows. To the boy across the hall, my savior’s only son, I’m a stray looking for a bone.

He’s lord of the manor.
King of the academy.
And number one on my shit list.

THE PEER

I have no intentions of becoming a happy family with the social climber and her wild daughter. A bottle of Jameson and a cracked skull gets my problem shipped to reform school, but I didn’t bank on her returning.

Four’s out to get even, and she almost had the perfect plan: expose the privileged kid moonlighting as a gangbanger. She’s smart, but she’ll have to be smarter. Sending her away won’t be good enough this time. I’m going to have to tame the little troublemaker. To the girl across the hall, the one without a name, I’m nothing without my silver spoon.

She’s lady of the trailer park.
Queen of the swamps.
And my new favorite pastime.

The Peer and the Puppet is an interconnected standalone and book one of a complete series. The plot introduced continues in the following novels. Content suitable for 18+.


The Peer and the Puppet by BB Reid: This was one of the first bully romance books that I read. I remember reading it and just wanting more! This book was the start of my love for bully/step brother romance books. While the Peer, Ever, isn’t exactly Four’s stepbrother, they do end up living together. Those first few chapters were just crazy! I love that Four takes no shit and pushes back at every turn. She can ride a bike, make casual clothes look sexy, and bring back life into Ever. She loves to push his buttons by never doing what he wants and of course, that just gets him all hot for her. This book has soo many steamy scenes! This book has the twists, drama, steam, it has everything! Perfect book to start your bully romance start. I wanted to strangle Four more than once myself for always going back to Ever, but how can she not, their names combined make FOUREVER! Hour cute is that! I love that BB Reid has continued the story in more standalones with flashes of past characters and can’t wait to see how their stories turn out!

The-Selection-Netflix

What! Wait….WHAT!! The Selection by Kiera Cass is coming to Netflix! I seriously can not wait to see what Saudi Arabia’s, Haifaa Al-Mansour, take on this YA book will be. We are so excited!

This apparently has been in the works for awhile but the bid has finally been announced recently! The Selection is a YA book about a young woman, America Singer, who has been chosen to be apart of the selection for the princes affection. I have personally binged all of these books and they were amazing. You won’t be able to put them down because of the drama, twists, turns, little bit of some steamy scenes. This being a YA the steamy scenes are PG and won’t get you all hot and bothered but the drama that happens between all the selecties will keep you wanting to read!

Currently the casting and release date are unknown, but stay-tuned! We will update as soon as we find out!
