Title: Creeping Beautiful (Creeping Beautiful #1)
Author: J.A. Huss
Genre: Psychological Fiction, Reverse Harem
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The first J.A. Huss book I read was Come from the Dirty, Dark, and Deadly series. 

That was it. It hooked me, here I was a shiny new J.A. Huss fan.

Harper is one of my all-time favorite FC, and James elite level dirty talker. Come, Come Back, Coming For You are books I’ve read multiple times. I followed them up with Rook and Ronin. The world she writes in is all tangled up. Many of her stories have cameos of past characters or reference past events. 

Indie Anna Accorsi’s heart is pulling her in four directions. She’s broken into a million pieces, so it’s easy for her heart to spread around willy-nilly. Each of her men serves a unique need: McKay is the nurturer/soul heal, Adam the ‘daddy’/soul guide, Donovan is the confidant/soulmate, and Nate is the BFF/soul share. 

The men she yearns for are very aware of who she is. They know what built her that way. In this world, looking out for number one is essential. Indie’s protectors would do anything to free her of one more moment of the hell that bore her.

Title: Winter King (The Wyth Courts #1)
Author: J.S. Dark
Genre: Steamy Paranormal Romance
My rating:
3 of 5 stars

Winter King, first in this series, has a gorgeous wrapper. I love the artwork. It’s so beautiful! J.S. Dark, if you read this review kudos to your artist!

Lately, I’ve read a great deal of paranormal romance, reverse harem, and sports romance. I am one of those people who gets focused on a genre and then ruts it until I find something to distract me. I looked at this cover for sometime before I read the book. Then it took a while to write the review for no other reason than the end of the year was crazy. I’m not as late to the party as much as I am late announcing I’m here.

Wyth is in trouble. The faerie realm is in danger. Monsters from the Tywyll Forest are plaguing the people; curses are killing the land.

I’d do anything for him, even become the woman he loves…

HER
I tried my best for years, but all he ever wanted was for her to come back. So bit-by-bit, I evolved, transforming into someone he could love. But he didn’t take the bait until I went all the way.

I became her.

Now everything is perfect. We’re happy. So in love. And he doesn’t suspect a thing.

SAWYER
Someone claiming my name sent me a video. It looks to be me, returning to my hometown, reconnecting with my high school boyfriend, Ezra. Those are my clothes, that’s my laugh, and that’s my face.

She took my freedom next. And then she made me watch as she took over my entire life, fooling everyone like a perfect chameleon. It’s clear what she wants, and Ezra is all too quick to take me back.

Only one person seems to notice something is off. Ezra’s brother, Davis—the last person I called. There’s a certain darkness in Davis’ eyes, and he’s not the type to let up until he gets his answers.

Everyone wants of a piece of Robin Stewart.
