Stuck at Home and March Reading

Hey all! I have been sharing a lot of books lately, or so it feels but I wanted to take a minute to check in and see how everyone is doing in whatever part of the World your in. Here in the Midwest we’re not doing horribly. The hubs just started working from Home yesterday and the kids have been out of school for the past week in a half..so we’re all slowly going crazy from being cooped up too long. But yesterday the weather finally decided to get nice and today is even nicer, YAY! So the Hubs grilled some food that will last us the next few days and the kids got to go outside and play. It was a much needed break! The administration is meeting this week to decide what do for the rest of the school year, as of this moment they go back to school on the 6th. YAY!!

Here is a question for everyone, what’s up with the freaking toilet paper and food/supply hording? We finally got some in our local Walmart and they are limiting the purchase to 1 per person so that should help..but still…JEEZ, it’s not even a symptom of Coronavirus…don’t know why everyone is freaking out about the amount of TP they have. Ridiculous! And the shelves are more bare than I’ve EVER seen them…it’s just crazy!

ANYWAY, how about all those free books from authors that are A-FREAKING-MAZING!!!??? I have some listed in my Facebook group, but it’s a small list compared to the groups that are dedicated to getting books/audiobooks to readers stuck in quarantine looking for an escape. I’ll share the links below, so check them out!

Quarantine Relief Books from Authors to Readers

I’m going to share with y’all all the books I’ve read so far in March. It wasn’t as many as I was hoping but I did finish quite a few! Some were ARCs but a lot of them are Kindle Unlimited books. KU has saved my life with how many books I have available to me now! Just click on the book covers to be taken to it’s Goodreads Page. Oh and some of them I haven’t actually posted my typed up reviews, just my star ratings, but y’all should be used to my procrastinating problem by now!

RB Banner (7).jpg

Title:
Dirty Prince
Series: Scarsdale Royals #1
Author: V. Darling
Genre: High School Bully Romance
Release Date: March 12,2020 

Synopsis

There’s only one thing you need to know about Scarsdale High.
The Royals rule here.
 
We say when to jump and how high, and the rest follow like lemmings because to do otherwise is social suicide.
 
As cheer captain, I have everything I’ve ever wanted, including Scarsdale’s star quarterback, Navrin Fox.
 
There’s just one problem … his twin brother.
 
Lev Fox knows exactly how to push my buttons—he’s been doing it since childhood, after all—but when I give into my baser instincts and let the boy I hate best me in a battle of wills, it’s not only my reputation as Queen Bee on the line, it’s my heart too.
 
Secrets, betrayal, and lies—that’s what we Royals do best.
But no one ever said anything about love.

Review

NOT WHAT I WAS EXPECTING

V. Darling took a different spin to the usual Bully Romance genre and I have to say that I am impressed and I freaking loved it! The dynamic between the characters is riveting and sucks you in from the very beginning. I love the chemistry, the love/hate, even the cheating aspect. I’m generally not of fan of cheating themes in books, tends to piss me off, but in this story the cheating just made it that much more intense. Which also makes me believe that I think I could start reading more of them, as long as they are as wonderfully written.

Dirty Prince was fantastic and I can wait to read more from V. Darling and continuing the Scarsdale Royal Series!

Excerpt
“You’re sick. You know that?” But even as I say it, I know we’re both infected, tainted, ailing from the same illness, and neither one of us will do anything to cure it. There is no cure for a love as vicious and cruel as this. There’s only embracing what we are, what we have, and what we’ll do to one another. What we’ll do to see each other fall.
“I want you to leave me alone.” I pant as his hands work my pussy faster and his cock pumps into my ass harder.
“I don’t think that’s true,” he whispers.
I gasp, struggling for breath as I climb closer to climax. “I hate you so much it hurts.”
“I know.” He bites down on my shoulder. The way a beast might bite the neck of his consort as he fucks her and claims her as his.
I always thought of Lev as a big bad wolf so in love with his own solitude—angry and untouchable—but he’s not. He’s a fox, sly and cunning, determined to shred, and tear until there is nothing left.
He groans as he spills inside me, and the sensations push me over the edge. My body clenches tight around him, riding him, milking him, and all the while he fucks me harder through my orgasm.
When the only sound in the room is our labored breaths, and the sweat cools on our bodies, he releases my shoulder and smiles. “The feeling is fucking mutual, Cub.”

Review

I think I say this a lot with my reviews…but HOLY HOTNESS!!!! I freaking LOVED reading Stolen Soulmate!!

It was amazing and kept me so interested that I could hardly do anything without the book open and reading! Grayson and Story are AMAZING and this book really had me twisted around! The emotional roller-coaster is long and twisted and dark….but such a fun ride! I was so intrigued because every time I thought the plot was going one way…it would totally go another….just freaking amazing!

The ending is most definitely NOT what I was expecting and because of that I can’t wait to devour book 2!!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!!

Excerpt
The ink was barely dry on the pages. I don’t know if I was ready for this. Somehow I felt like I was more of a virgin than Grayson. Nervous, skittish. He’d warned me when all of this began that the things he’d seen and done would wreck me.
I should’ve believed him then.
When I didn’t do anything for a minute, he arched a brow.
Do whatever he says.
I could use my safe word, but a twisted part of me liked doing what he told me to do. Liked the rush and the way his eyes hardened. It felt like power, power over one of the most powerful people in the world.
I’d barely taken a step to him, when he ripped me to him by the small of my waist. His other hand tangled in my hair, yanking my head to the side.
“Fuck,” he said, lips at my neck. “Which part do I eat first.”
Delicious tingles spread along my skin at his words. His nose ran along my neck, goosebumps following in his wake. His hands slid from hair, from my waist, along my body, feeling every inch of me, like he couldn’t do it fast enough, before settling back in my hair.
Deliriously, I found the zipper of my dress, but his overtook mine. Stopping me.
“I’m going to ruin your white dress, Snitch. Ruin you. Until you’re all fucked up from me.”

Release Blitz with Giveaway ~ Paine by Tracy Lorraine

Title: Paine
Series: Rosewood High #2
Author: Tracy Lorraine
Genre: YA/NA High School Bully Romance

Release Date: February 20, 2020

Synopsis

She was my best friend. The person I told my deepest secrets to. But when my world came crashing down, it was all because of her family.

From that moment, I realized I’d been wrong to trust her. Her big caring eyes and sweet face were nothing but an act as she’d watched on while I tried to keep my head above water.

That was our past.

Now, I’ve largely put Camila behind me and moved on with my life. Though it doesn’t explain why she’s always there: taunting me, tempting me, showing me the life I could have been living.

I should have been laughing when her own world turned upside down. Karma always wins out in the end. But suddenly we’re forced together once again and I have no choice but to remember the girl I’ve tried so hard to forget.

By the time I walk through the doors of the academy, where the born shifters of every pack are trained to fight and lead, I’m famous. Infamous? One of those.

I’ve already fought a battle or two. And my family’s complicated relationships with magic, which has been long forbidden to wolves, isn’t popular with all the packs.

There’s quite the welcome committee waiting for me.

My cadre, who want to break me down and build me back up again into a fighter.

My bullies, who just want to break me.

My patrol, who rises or falls with me.

They don’t expect me to make it to graduation in four years.

But I know I will.

Who’ll be standing with me at the end?

Their Shifter Academy is a new reverse harem romance series, set in a military academy for shifters.

Review

GREAT beginning! I haven’t read anything by May Dawson but I am completely HOOKED! The story line, characters, writing style all captivated me and had me completely immersed the second I started reading. This is a great beginning for all the characters and it sets everything up nicely without too much added in an unnecessary fashion. Simply fantastic! I’m super intrigued by the guys and just who is going to be a part of Maddie’s Harem because I personally want them all to be a part of it, the more the merrier right. Even if there are a couple of men that have me thinking they could be “too” much of an Asshole. However, it’s the Assholes that need love the most right 😉

Synopsis

I’m going to war with the bullies that have tormented me at the academy. It’s time to make Jensen McCauley and his minions pay.

It’s all his fault. It’s all his plan.

Jensen wanted to be left alone so he could unravel the secrets surrounding his sister’s death.

I’ve got enough to figure out. I have to make sense of the on-again, off-again heat between Lex and me, my hopeless crush on Rafe, the sexy instructor who think I’m a human trainwreck, and the way I’ve ruined my friendship with Penn.

Plus, there’s the small matter of the demon stalking me…

But when Jensen McCauley needs my help…even though he doesn’t deserve me… I’ll help him find the truth about his sister.

It’s a truth some people are desperate to cover up.

Can Jensen and I not only work together…but survive?

Review

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST! As soon as I finished Unwanted I started this one and I read it even quicker, which really upsets me because the next one won’t even be out until February!!! Talk about being pissed!!! I’m pretty sure I scared my kiddos when I hollered about that release date! ANYWAY, I can bitch about that later, on to what I thought of this book….HOLY HOTNESS!!! Unclaimed was filled to the brim with everything you could want in a book. Romance, Hate, Secrets, Action/Adventure, Mystery, Betrayal..I could go on…but I won’t! I have SOOO many questions and so much left unfulfilled!! Maddie and her men developed even more and parts of the story were taken care of, but more issues popped up that need to be handled.

FUCKING PERFECTION!! May Dawson I salute you and your beautiful, wonderful, amazingly creative mind and I am going to be waiting desperately for that next book, but I’ll be reading your other books in mean time!

***Going to do some squealing about some things, if you don’t want to read spoilers, please avoid**

So here are some things that just made me super freaking happy:

1. Jensen and Maddie finally bumping bunnies! YES YES YES!!! He might be one of my favorites, seriously though, awesome!

2. Can I PRETTY PLEASE have my wish granted when it comes to Rafe?? Let that man spank her!!!! SERIOUSLY NEED SOME RAFE ACTION IN MY BOOK READING!!!

3. That scene with Penn, Jensen and Maddie….FUCKING YES!
