Jailbait (Souls Chapter Revenants, Book 3) by Lani Lynn Vale: Release Blitz + Double Review

Title: Jailbait
Series: Souls Chapel Revenants MC, Book 3
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: MC Romance
Publish Date: April 6, 2021
Review Source: Uplifting Author Services

The first time I saw her was across the room at a bar. I had no idea at the time that she was only sixteen. All I knew was that she was beautiful, she was sending me do-me vibes from across the room, and I was fresh off a deployment where there’d been nobody but men for nine of the longest months of my life.

The second time that I saw her was at a court hearing that would decide how long I’d be sent to prison for. She was a cute little curly-haired blonde with wide, expressive eyes, a banging body, and the reason that I’d gone to prison in the first place.

The third time I saw her was through a glass divider of the prison visitation room as she waited for her stepfather, my lawyer, to tell me how sorry he was that he lost my case. Especially when I’d been the one to kill the man that was about to kill his daughter.

The last time, the time that I decided enough was enough, was when I saw her at my bar eight weeks after I’d been set free.

Unlucky for her, I’d stopped being a good guy about two seconds after those bars closed behind me twelve years ago. Now all that was left was a shell of a man that didn’t see the good in anything. Anything except for her.

Jailbait was a pretty quick read for me. I love that. I get the whole shebang in just a few hours and it’s what I love so much about Lani. She knows how to start and finish a story, giving you every detail that’s needed, without all of the unnecessary fluff or fillers. Get down to the point. Give us the hero and heroine, add in a few side characters, love, and a little bit of drama and you’ve got another chart-topper.

This time around, we meet Trick and the hilarious Swayze. This chick is a force to be reckoned with. Their relationship started off with a bang and ended with one as well. Bad luck seems to find them, although they come back swinging. Throw in the MC and you’ve got a family that will never give up on you. Another 4.5 star read from me. I can’t wait for Hunts story, coming up next!!!

Jailbait is the 3rdinstallment in the Souls Chapel Revenants MC series. With any of Vale’s books she is a mastermind in coming up with stories that flow like honey and can be sweet as sin, but the sin is the fun part. 

Trick and Swayze meet in an unfortunate way, but it binds them together whether they like it or not.  I loved the pull these two have to each other. No matter what Trick always looked out for Swayze even though she thought she didn’t need to have someone at her back. 

Like always there is some twists and turns with Vale’s books and there is no exception with this book. She sure knows how to keep you on your toes. What another great book to add to your collection!!

Scarred Empire (Broken Cross, Book Two) by Bri Blackwood: Release Blitz + Excerpt + Giveaway + Review

Title: Scarred Empire
Series: Broken Cross, Book Two
Author: Bri Blackwood
Genre: Billionaire Dark Romance
Release Date: April 8, 2021
Review Source: Give Me Books Promotions

She is scarred.

When I stormed into her life, it was supposed to be temporary.
Anais was supposed to be like the rest,
Then I became addicted.
My past caught up with me and she walked out before I could make her mine.
Tragedy strikes and I have no choice but to bring her back into my world.
In order to protect her, I convince her to wear my ring.
But I fear even I can't protect her from the turmoil we're about to face.

Scarred Empire is the second in an enemies to lovers billionaire trilogy. Themes in this dark and sexy series may not be suitable for all readers. Anais and Damien’s story concludes in Steel Empire.

Great book! Has drama, hot sex, bits of romance, danger & lots of Alpha Male stuff going on.

Damien & Anais are wonderful characters separately but combined they are off the charts. His dominant Alpha desires along with her unwillingness to listen to his demands put them both in a predicament that is entertaining and fun. And HOT!!!!!

She's paying off a debt. He's trying to get her out of his system is the only way he will What happens if they fall in love? If one gets attached and one doesn't? Can the man that only allows sex even have it in him to fall in love?

Amazing story, great characters, and excellent writing make this a must-read book!

Highly Recommend!!!!

That was all I could hear and feel as I was carried somewhere. I struggled against my captor. My hands were restrained but that didn't mean I couldn't make his life difficult. I kicked my legs and moved my body as much as I could. Tears streamed down my cheeks, but they were absorbed by the cloth that covered my face.
I heard something click to my right and I held my breath, wondering if someone had cocked a gun. I briefly wondered how long it would take for me to feel the piercing pain that my father endured just before he ended up in a pool of his own blood. But nothing followed the sound. I shook my head and felt the cloth that was covering a portion of my face loosen. A few more shakes and I was able to get the fabric below my eyes and I squinted. The blinding light directly over me was disorienting, but for as bright as it was, it did little to light the entire room. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust, but I didn’t know where the hell I was.
Where is my father? Dread filled my heart as I thought back to the scene that unfolded in front of me. The memory of seeing his lifeless form just before I was kidnapped made my body turn cold. My lips trembled and my teeth chattered as fresh tears burst from my eyes. I shivered, but when I tried to bring my hand forward, I couldn't. My hands were tied with what felt like some type of plastic. I looked behind me and found that a zip tie held my hands together.
Fuck. My mind raced because I knew I had to get out of this. Nobody was coming to rescue me and I would have to do this myself. I took a few breaths, calming myself enough to stop the shivers. Now, Anais, what are you going to do? I knew there was no way to break out of this without hurting myself. How can I free myself? Is there a tool I can use to rip these cable ties open? I took another steadying breath and steeled myself before I examined my surroundings.
This room was foreign to me and had barely anything in it. There was a brown sofa, an outdated television sitting on a tiny stand, and I was sitting in a brown chair that had seen better days. I spotted a single closed door, but no windows or any signs that anyone actually lived or worked here.
Panic once again rose in my throat as the events of the last couple of hours flooded my brain. My heart thumped harder in my chest, and I knew that if I didn't get myself back under control, fear would take over again.
I couldn't allow that to happen because I had to get out of here. I took a deep breath and wondered if I could yell for help. Maybe my kidnappers were gone, and someone would hear me. It wasn't the best plan, but it was all I had. I took a deep breath and started screaming. I prayed that it wasn’t for naught and that my screams wouldn’t do anything but steal my voice.
“Help! Help! Help! Is someone there? Help me!”
“Would you shut up!” a deep voice from the corner of the room yelled.
I flinched and my mouth snapped shut. Fear returned tenfold. My heart sped up, beating a rapid drumbeat in my chest. I wasn’t alone.

Off - Limits (Rixon High, Book One) by L.A. Cotton: Blog Tour + Review

Title: Off - Limits
Series: Rixon High, Book One
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: Opposites Attract/Sports Romance
Publish Date: March 30, 2021
Review Source: Candi Cane PR

𝘈𝘯𝘨𝘴𝘵… 𝘋𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘢… 𝘍𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘥𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘱… 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘧𝘰𝘰𝘵𝘣𝘢𝘭𝘭. 𝘞𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘷𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘴𝘦𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘦𝘢𝘳?

𝗟𝗶𝗹𝘆 𝗙𝗼𝗿𝗱 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝗮 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗳𝗹𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿.

But it’s senior year, and she wants nothing more than to try and push her boundaries and embrace the last year of high school.

𝗞𝗮𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵𝗲𝗿 𝗵𝗮𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝘄𝗮𝘆𝘀 𝗯𝗲𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗿 𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗼𝘁𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗹𝗱.

But now he finds himself in enemy territory forced to prove himself to his new coach and teammates.

It starts with a dare. Seven minutes of heaven in a boat shed. But it quickly turns into something neither of them saw coming.

He’s everything she should resist.
She’s everything he shouldn’t want.
But neither of them are willing to walk away because together, their demons seem that little bit easier to silence.

There’s just one problem ... Lily is the coach’s daughter.

𝗔𝗻𝗱 𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗵𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗿𝗲𝗱 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗰𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗼𝗳𝗳-𝗹𝗶𝗺𝗶𝘁𝘀.

Oh my goodness!!! I absolutely adore Kaiden and Lily. Such sweet characters, and such amazing backstories. There isn’t a single thing I wouldn’t do to have these two together. A popular football-playing bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks meets the shy, odd, yet beautiful and troubled Lily.

The lead characters are amazing, as well as the side characters. Lily’s friends love her to the core. They know what she’s been through and they know what she needs. Kaiden’s friends are rough and rugged, but soft in the places that the girls crave and desire. Each group of friends is loyal to a fault, but that doesn’t stop them from being who they are. Kaiden wants Lily, but he knows that the coach’s daughter is off-limits. At least she is if he wants the future he desires. Will he risk it all for the girl or is his future too important?

L.A. Cotton is as brilliant as ever. A high school romance that will make you swoon. You’ll feel like you’re back in those school halls. It brought me back to some great memories. Ones that I’d love to relive. Pick up your copy of Off-Limits. This is the 1st book in the Rixon High series. I can’t wait for Peyton and Xander’s story, coming in May!!

L.A. Cotton sure knows how to write a good story about the most forbidden love. Kaiden and Lily have an instant attraction to one another, but what neither of them knows is a tainted past involving their families is bound to keep them apart. When sneaking around and keeping secrets turns out to be a bad decision, is their bond strong enough to hold them together, or will it tear them apart?

This book was a page-turner just like all the other books I have read, if you love the strong bond but forbidden love this book will not disappoint!!

In the Cards (Road Trip Romance, Book Eight) by AK Evans: Release Blitz + Review

Title: In the Cards
Series: Road Trip Romance, Book Eight
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Author: AK Evans
Release Date: April 6, 2021

Zoe Fitzgerald has been cleaning up after her sister for years. As much as she wants to walk away, she can’t. Because her innocent niece and nephew are betting on her to keep them safe. Knowing she could be called upon at any moment means love isn’t on the horizon for Zoe. She’d never expect someone to willingly walk into the train wreck that is her life.

Being a police officer who serves the community on the outskirts of Las Vegas, Dex Taylor is no stranger to crime. While he’s seen his fair share of bad situations, it’s two terrified children who nearly bring him to his knees. And it’s their aunt that steals his heart.

After her sister’s latest disaster, Zoe is determined as ever to save these kids for the last time. What she wasn’t expecting was the handsome officer’s willingness to help. While she appreciates his efforts, Zoe isn’t stupid. Dex is simply a good man with a big heart.

A real relationship isn’t in the cards… is it?

Very feel-good book. Uplifting. Not graphic. Not a lot of cursing. Great YA book!

Zoe & What a sweet couple and what amazing characters. They each are just great people. Down to their soul. Zoe took on her very young niece & nephew while her sister is in rehab. Dex, a police officer, just does good deeds wherever he goes.

Will Zoe be able to get out of her own head? She's always told herself that love and romance just isn't in the cards for her. She resigned herself to think that she can only be an amazing Aunt and mother figure to her sister's kids. Dex brings her what she didn't know she was missing.

Honestly, I don't go for these books very often. I like a lot more "steam" in my books. However, this was an excellent read. Just enough dirty to go with the abundance of romance. A way more normal relationship and I appreciated the trials that this couple is faced with and how they handle it.

The writing is excellent and the characters are even better. Definitely a must read!

Highly Recommend!
