No spoilers here: I’m not too fond of Letty. Unlike the previous two MKU installments, I finally liked Kane–for a little bit.
A little reminder. Letty dropped the bomb on Kane as to what their puddle loving resulted in, and that literally put him in a tailspin at the end of the book. So this one begins with him in the hospital and with Letty in the arms of another dude.
Really, now? How many dudes do you need? I know, all of them. Because Letty only knows what she wants when forced to admit it.
Title: Natural Born Killers (Sick Boys #3) Author: Lucy Smoke Genre: New Adult, Sports Romance, College Romance Release Date:30 April 2021
Rule No. 3: Never let anyone think they can hurt you and get away with it.
I thought I’d seen and felt the worst of it, but there’s nothing worse than betrayal.
Corina knows who’s behind what happened to me and she may think hiding will keep her safe, but after everything that’s happened, nothing can keep her safe from me and the Sick Boys. She’s a pawn in all of this, but I’ll get that information even if it means I have to cut it out of her – piece by fucking piece.
This little charade is about to end. They thought they could drag me down into the dirt and grind my soul into the dust. What they failed to realize is that there’s nothing left of my soul and I don’t mind getting a little dirty if it means getting my revenge. I may have let her fool me once, but there’s no way in hell I’ll let her fool me twice.
After we’re done with her, we’re going after the big boys.
This book had a terribly slow start, and so many times, I want to throw it down and quit. But I’m glad I didn’t because right around the time someone ahem passes out at the funeral, it all picks up.
Pippa Grant has a style that is simply all hers wonderful and blessed chaos. In typical Pippa fashion, her heroine, Muffy Periwinkle, is a hot mess. It’s not just that she is a med school drop-out or runs a flagging matchmaking business. You can’t point at her figure or her insecurities and say that those are what has her at wit’s end. It’s not that she has a death-seeking feline; it’s all of it together. She needs some tender loving care.
There is so much here to unpack. L.A. Cotton has covered some important topics in this book.
Jason Ford’s nightmare has come true. Lewis Thatcher’s spawn has come to Rixon High, and he wants to be Jase’s next QB1. Can Coach Ford get his head straight to let Kaiden have a chance, or will bad blood spoil Kaiden’s only opportunity to get out of Rixon?
But the dynamic between Jason and Kaiden isn’t the only thing going on here. L.A. Cotton also introduces a complicated heroine in Lily Ford. A delicate and traumatized girl on the edge of womanhood or a nervous breakdown–whichever comes first. Lily has friends and family to support her, but she is wounded and healing but not thriving, and more importantly, not living until Kaiden Thatcher sets her aflame.

Oh, I’m such a big fan! IMM! Hearts and doodles. Who does Sports Romance Better?
And let me preface this with the disclaimer there are barely any sports in this–Not My Match is an Ode to Nerd-dom and Physics. I’m talking the Multiverse, anti-matter, CERN, String Theory, purple aliens with sexy tails–wait, she took the tail out–we are saying yes to STEM! And hello, to women in STEM. My kinda book. And Giselle Riley is my book girlfriend!
Devon Walsh, #89, has a crush. Man, is he bad hiding it. Just about anyone looking at him grinding his teeth while other men talk to Giselle can see it written in blood. But nope, Giselle isn’t his type. Too innocent. Too good. Too smart. Too in need of him to help her find the perfect match for her because she can do better than anyone she’s picking out for herself.
This game is ‘Tell Me a Secret, Tell Me a Lie.’ It’s just what it sounds like. I give a prompt, and you, the character, gets to determine if you want to hint a secret or lie: one or the other.
Tell me a secret about the last lie you told your partner or Tell me a lie you told your partner to keep that secret.
*Asher explodes with laughter* Asher: Tell her where Felicity thinks you are today man. Jason: F%^$ off Cameron: You lied to her? Jason: I didn’t… it’s not… I may have extended the truth but only because I knew she’d want to come
Tell me a secret you can’t tell your bestie or Tell me a lie you just told your parents.
