Title: Pretty Nightmare (Creeping Beautiful #1)
Author: J.A. Huss
Genre: Psychological Fiction
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Is it just me, or does anyone else feel bruised after reading Company novels? I loved James Fenici and Harper Tate and devoured that trilogy, but no other Company book has made me that hungry. Maybe it was because those were my introduction and now I’m like nine books in and it’s all WRONG, DIRTY, BAD–and not in a good or sexy way.

Pretty Nightmare is book two in the Creeping Beautiful series. Indie Anna Accorsi is the pretty nightmare of Core McKay and Adam Boucher, and the eternal mystery of Donovan Couture. Book one was the formative years, and book two is a collection of snapshots and flashbacks of epic events and occasions of importance leading to our ultimate series of reveals. And this time there are some real zingers.

I told you last book–I told you!

ALSFR is book two in a three-book series, so if you haven’t read book one, A Love Song for Liars, you shouldn’t be reading this review. Don’t pass go, don’t collect two-hundred dollars, do one-click book one, and start at the beginning.

Title: Curse of the Fae King (Dark Faerie Court #1)

My rating: 5 of 5 star

Author: Elena Monroe
Genre: Mystery/Fantasy New Adult Romance
Release Date: 22 May 2020

Summary:

NYX

I didn’t know I was so set on truths until I realized my whole life was a lie.

Being banished to Arcadia Prep.

The myths we though were just empty threats meant to iron out bad behavior.

All of it was a neatly packaged lie. 

Hell raged in the pit of my stomach and now we were free to wreak havoc on humanity.

LUNA

The truth was simple: I was a good girl meant to heal the wounded and help uphold the truth.

I’m the one who tore the truth down. 

I stomped on it and set it on fire.

I did everything that didn’t add up to the me I cultivated.

I was a perfectly packaged lie.

Title: My Sweet Bully
Author: Penny Wylder
Genre: Romance
Release Date: 15 May 2020

Summary:

Bully. That’s what I am to her.

It’s not a name I ever expected to be called, but after what she did to me that one awful summer, I’ll wear it with pride. It’s the least I can do after she put my older brother

behind bars.

Prairie Westmin– her face is burned into my mind. And now I have to stare at it every day of our senior year. I want to make her miserable. I know she’s my enemy.

So why am I defending her from others on campus?

I tell myself it’s because she’s MINE. I’m the only one who can bully her. Just me.

That logic is warping the longer I’m around her.

Fury becomes curiosity. Anger becomes passion. Cruelty becomes love.

One kiss and I forget that I’m supposed to hate her to my very core. This woman is beating up my heart and ruling my world.

Am I her bully… or is she mine?

(My Sweet Bully is a full length romance with all the delicious chemistry and tension that only a pair of 18 year olds in high school can bring. Drama, angst, and all the red-hot-love you trust me to write. xoxoxo)

Book Review: Winter’s Arrow by Lexi C. Foss

Title: Winter’s Arrow (X-Clan Sector #3)
Author: Lexi C. Foss
Genre: Omegaverse, Paranormal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

OMG! Amirite?

Snow Frost is heir to the Winter Sector throne. Adopted daughter to the Queen of Mirrors, Vanessa, who is plotting against her and the kingdom, in a power move to end all power moves because bey-otches be bey-otches, yo! 

This is my favorite X-Clan story so far. Ander Cain was a mean dope, IMO–he made me cry for an entire chapter. Elias is totally my WILF, and now Lexi C. Foss gave me another name to add to the WILF list in Sven Mickelson–who is getting his own book next in the series, Bariloche Sector. Swoon, I tell you. SWOON! 

But Kazek Flor is my wolf, and he won’t be to everyone’s taste, but he’s tasty as all heckfire to me.

Winter’s Arrow is a retelling of Sleeping beauty omegaverse-style. Snow Frost is a Beta princess promised to the Alpha Enrique from the Bariloche Sector in an alliance mating devised by the Queen of Mirrors. Only Snow finds that there is something far sinister awaiting her on her wedding night. Feeling reckless, she gets a little mouthy with Alpha Kazek from the Norse Sector; instead of punishing her, he finds her tempting. And fate and Snow’s miscalculations land her at his feet when she attempts to escape. Only this is ain’t no fairytale.

Kazek is more smexy growl than bitter poisoned bite compared to Ander Cain, who was a bunch of emotional rocks (Sorry, Lexi C. Foss). Kaz’s brutal in many ways I can embrace, but Kaz lacks the prideful callousness that made me angry about a lot of what happened in Andorra Sector. I would say that Kaz is Ander done correctly (Sorry, Lexi C. Foss).

If I had to scour the book for a complaint, I would say that I wish the Snow’s/Winter’s Seven weren’t so similar. Overall they had little character development. They also had very little part in the story, and they were easy to confuse for one another other than Grum, who was part of the plot. 

I loved Winter’s Arrow, and I can’t wait for Sven and Kari’s book! 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary advance copy of this book.

Title: Sweet Chaos (Love and Chaos #2)
Author: Emery Rose
Genre: Contemporary
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well, this book gets an extra star for setting me off on a Pearl Jam binge that hasn’t ended in days.

This book is sexy looking.
This book is sexy reading.
This book is sexy inside and out.

I’m from San Diego, and this book is such a devilish homage that it tickles me to review it.

Dylan St. Clair grew up never having much of any value to anyone other than his twin Remy. That is until he grew into his pretty and sexy phase, and rich trophy wives and rebellious daughters found a purpose for him. It’s easy getting lost to demons when they are the only thing that looks back at you in the mirror, and no one recognizes you for who you are anyway. At least it was like that for Dylan until an eleven-year-old girl scared him straight while he was attempting to sneak into her sister’s bedroom window. Scarlet Woods saw a broken boy when everyone else saw a tool.
