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.

Guest Post: Eve Corso on Writing in a Pandemic

Eve Corso
Eve Corso

Hello. I would first and foremost like to introduce myself. My name is Eve Corso and I am the author of six books in print, all contemporary romances. I have two series. The first is the Esteban & Marialena series, which contains 3 books, and the second is a Matter of Timing series, which is a 2-part series. I also have a stand-alone book called You & Me in Washington, D.C. which is loosely based on the time when I lived on the East coast. 

The question has been raised to me. How has this pandemic affected my writing? You know, I think like the pandemic itself, I find myself with ups and downs during this time. I think at the beginning, there was a different kind of energy surrounding me. I thought to myself, finally, I have all this time now to write. Then, I was looking at something like two weeks being off. What I didn’t know was how long this was going to last. And the longer it’s lasting, the more my writing has fallen to the wayside. It’s not from a lack of wanting or trying. It’s mostly that I don’t feel creative as a writer right now. When I look back at my words these past few weeks, none of it excites me, and I might have to go back and scrap it all when I figure out how I want to re-write it.

Release Date:

Summary:

Mila

Secrets. Lies. Deception.

It’s all part of his vendetta, and so am I. He stole me, used me as one of his pawns by forcing me into a marriage I wanted no part of. I had to sign my name on the dotted line, and now he owns me…body, mind, and soul. 

That’s why I ran. I had to escape the monster whose touch corrupted me. Break free from the man who seduced me, the beast who gave me a taste of the darkness. 

But now I crave it. I need it. I need him.

I’m his to play with…until I break. 

Saint

Distraction. Addictive. Toxic.

Mila wasn’t supposed to be anything more than a signature, a beautiful secret, a wife with no voice. Instead, she became an addiction, a complication that could cost me everything—a price I wasn’t willing to pay…until she ran from me.

Now, the game has changed, and the stakes are much higher. She thinks she’s seen the worst of me, convinced I couldn’t be more vicious and cruel. But I’m about to prove her wrong because I’ll risk everything to get what I want. 

Revenge…and my wife.

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.

Title: The Secrets We Hide (The Four #2)
Author: Becca Steele
Genre: Dark College Stepbrother Romance
My rating:
3 of 5 stars

Ever walk into a conversation you’ve heard before but needed a reminder about the story to get caught up about the deets? The Secrets We Hide has perfect continuity; you should read The Lies We Tell right before it. I didn’t and had to go back and read the last two chapters of TLWT for the refresher. 

Don’t be me.

Welcome back to the topsy-turvy underbelly world of Alstone, where money and power are the only real things of worth. The Four and Winter are still trying to uncover what happened to Winter’s father and the shady goings-on that lead Winter to the docks at the end of book one. Alstone Holdings does have a rat in the house. The saying goes, ‘where there is one; there are many.’ The Secrets We Hide has them coming out of the woodwork.
