Synopsis:

Meet the infamous Ross, black sheep of the family and bully extraordinaire.
I drink too much, smoke too much, screw around. I’ve hurt people, been in and out of prison. I’m a bastard, a beast.
I’m a goddamn bundle of joy.
I mean, my own dad tried to kill me, what does that tell you?
Then again, my dad did kill my mom, so maybe it isn’t just me. Who the hell knows.
The world sucks and I’m giving it the finger in every damn way, except…
Except there’s a girl. Pretty. Hot. Clever. She didn’t get the memo – that she should hate me, shun me, kick me when I’m down. That the world screwed us all over. She believes in the future – and sometimes she seems to even believe in me.
Big mistake. I’m bad news. I made her suffer in the past, and nothing has changed. I’m not an angel, not a saint. No good.
But for some reason I don’t get, I can’t let her go down with me. I find myself trying to be better for her, pretending to be someone I’m not.
And if that doesn’t ring some damn big alarm bells regarding my sanity, well… then I’m done already.

* This is the story of Ross, half-brother to Octavia, Gigi and Merc, set in the Wild Men series *

📝My Review📝:

No SaintNo Saint by Jo Raven

Between 4 & 4.5 Stars.
I have been a huge fan of this author for a very long time. It needs to be said because I might be a little biased. She hasn’t written a book that I didn’t love. Her heroes are so damaged and broken. Their pasts are some of the most horrific I’ve ever read. Jo Raven is not afraid to cross boundaries. Her books are not for you if you’re looking for a sugary read. I guarantee your heart will break and you will be so angry. So, so angry for what her heroes have suffered. And in No Saint, that applies in excess. You have to wonder how these young men survive the lot life has dealt them. They survive because they are strong heroes with strong heroines who will support and love them unconditionally.

In No Saint,Ross Jones is just surviving his days and nights. This isn’t easy to do when he is constantly tormented. The bully is being bullied. We met Ross early on in the Wild Men series when we were first introduced to Octavia. This book can be read as a standalone, however, I highly recommend you read the previous books. Ross has been an important and complex part of each and knowing about who he was will help you understand him. Maybe forgive him too.

Without giving you details, I found a few circumstances in this book to be unrealistic which is why I’m between 4 & 4.5 stars. But this is just my opinion so please take this lightly and decide for yourself. In addition, I wanted to see the antagonists in this book get what they deserved on the pages and not just an afterthought at the end.

Can bullies be forgiven? Can I forgive Ross for all the suffering he has caused? I wasn’t sure that I could. Fortunately, the author painted the pictures of Ross’s past which put me front and center at his own suffering. God, I wanted to hold him and hug him to me tightly. Fortunately, Ross had Luna and after she dealt with her own anger in regards to Ross’s bullying, she helped him to heal. She became his support. Support which he desperately needed. One of the aspects I appreciated was how the author grew and developed Ross and Luna’s characters. There was a lot of pain, a lot of history between them. It took a while before Luna could forgive Ross but not before she understood him.

This book is dark and intense. Very passionate, very sad and sometimes violent. But I promise, you will sigh with great relief and happiness in the end.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Curves AheadCurves Ahead by Andi Jaxon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, wow! This book… incredible, intense and emotional. Tragic and heartbreaking.

Andi Jaxon is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her writing is magical and she is not afraid to cross boundaries of any kind. That’s right…..she goes there! I’ll warn you now that this book is NOT a fluffy romance! It is gut-wrenching, angsty and suspenseful. I’ll also warn you this book is heavy on triggers. While the most graphic of the abuse stems from memories, that won’t matter to your heart. You will be effected.

Alex and Kristin…….
The prior book to this one features Alex’s twin brother Alistair and Kristin’s best friend Ben. That book was also intense in very similar ways. Both books stand alone, however you will have a better reading experience if you read Learning Curve before or even after.

This is one of those times where I can’t say too much in my review. I don’t want to chance giving away, not even one tiny detail. There are moments you won’t understand, moments you won’t even see coming, moments your heart will break and most definitely, moments you will be fiercely angry. Not even justice being served will ease your soul.

Alex is a police officer. Because of circumstances in his past, Alex does not want to get to close to anyone. Especially a woman. He has a reputation of being with a lot of women which is one of the reasons, Kristin hates him so passionately. But as you know, there is a fine line between love and hate. Kristin and Alex become close and slowly become more than friends. One of the aspects I loved about this book was that these two didn’t become a couple until later; their relationship slowly morphing from enemies to friends to more.

I would describe this book as an enemies to lovers, dark romance trope with a huge helping of angst.

Kristin has her own demons. Or should I say nightmares. Kristin is dealing with so much and her reoccurring nightmares are starting to bleed into her daily life. Fear is prominent but she doesn’t understand why and when we find out, neither Kristin or the reader will be prepared.

I promise you this book has a wonderful ending, but not before this couple travel through the worst of Hell. I absolutely recommend this dark, intense, and emotional read. The writer’s flow is perfect: you won’t be able to put this book down. Andi Jaxon is definitely an author you should check out!

This is my honest review. Thank you for taking the time to read it.

Now Available! Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie Duet Book One, A Friends-to-Lovers Roommate Romance. Read below the post for my Review! 👇

This is a friends-to-lovers roommate romance filled with drama, suspense, and, of course, plenty of angsty slow burn goodness you’ve come to expect in a Kennedy Fox book!

Truly Mine, Book 1

The night we met in the dimly lit bar, she looked like a brunette bombshell, and I wanted to learn her deepest secrets. With sun-kissed skin and soulful bedroom eyes, she was pure temptation, and I was mesmerized. 
 
As one drink led to two, I craved more of her playful banter and taunting lips. Resisting her wasn’t an option, and we quickly became a desperate mess of tangled limbs and hot kisses. She tasted like the sweetest sin, and I was no saint.
 
Once we caught our breaths, and it became obvious that meeting her wasn’t a coincidence, everything changed. Now I must deny her at all costs. 
 
Friends. It’s all we can ever be.

 

 
After years of lying to myself and keeping her at a distance, I want to pull her close. Sophie’s on my mind more than ever as my instincts to protect her take over. Regardless of my attempts to help, she pushes me away and makes it clear she doesn’t need me. 
 
I’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe, to show her I’m the good guy, but one night takes a tragic turn for the worse when her boyfriend and I start throwing punches. 
 
And ends when I’m arrested for his murder.

Truly Yours, Book 2

Releasing: September 10th

 

I knew within moments of meeting Mason Holt that he would change my life forever.

I just didn’t realize how much.

As my world spirals out of control, he continues to stay by my side, protecting and taking care of me. 

Being just friends is all he’s been able to offer, that is until both of our lives are threatened. Now that our relationship is blossoming into something more, I can’t be what he needs even if I wished I could.

Bad timing strikes again.

When I think we can finally be together, someone threatens to tear us apart. I’m not the same girl Mason met three years ago, but I’m determined to fight for what I’ve always wanted…him.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, oh wow! Thank goodness I have more than nine lives because this author duo kills me every time. In a good way, of course.

Yep, you guessed it……cliffhanger!

So, that being said, there isn’t a whole lot I can tell you regarding details. But if you are familiar with this author and their duets, then no explaining is necessary. If not, then hang on for an emotional, angsty ride. Kennedy Fox can weave a tale of romance, angst, suspense and love every time. I always look forward to what comes next in their literary line up.

I can tell you this…..Mason and Sophie were introduced in the first duet of this amazing series. We know there is chemistry and something stronger between them. Even though we have never seen them on the pages together in any intimate circumstance, their attraction is so obvious. But why haven’t they acted on it? That is what you will finally find out in Truly Mine: Mason & Sophie.
I loved meeting Mason all over again with his own perspective. I really liked him. Of course I loved him too; he is a sexy man. But the fact that I like his character and the protective instincts he displays and the reasons he tries to distance himself from Sophie make him a gentleman as well.

As I said earlier in my review, I can’t say much because I won’t spoil this book for you. But I will say that it is amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on book two, which is thankfully coming soon otherwise I’ll be having too many sleepless nights waiting to find out what happens next. Oh, and that cliffhanger? It’s a big one! 😉

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the tie to read it. 🙂

Synopsis:

HE WANTS TO LOSE CONTROL.
Between his parents’ messed up marriage and his narcissistic younger brother, Lincoln Moorehead has spent the majority of his life avoiding his family. After the death of his father, Lincoln finds himself in the middle of the drama. To top it all off, he’s been named CEO of Moorehead Media, much to his brother’s chagrin. But Lincoln’s bad attitude softens when he meets the no-nonsense, gorgeous woman who has been given the task of transforming him from the gruff, wilderness guy to a suave businessman

SHE’S TRYING TO HOLD IT TOGETHER.
Wren Sterling has been working double time to keep the indiscretions at Moorehead Media at bay, so when she’s presented with a new contract, with new responsibilities and additional incentives, she agrees. Working with the reclusive oldest son of a ridiculously entitled family is worth the hassle if it means she’s that much closer to pursuing her own dreams. What Wren doesn’t expect is to find herself attracted to him, or for it to be mutual. And she certainly doesn’t expect to fall for Lincoln. But when a shocking new Moorehead scandal comes to light, she’s forced to choose between her own family and the broody, cynical CEO.

Handle With Care (Shacking Up, #5)Handle With Care by Helena Hunting

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

How do I love this book? Let me count the ways, lol. As is usual for me, I am never disappointed in a Helena Hunting title. Her style of writing has always been the main aspect that keeps me coming back for more. Her characters are flawed and complex and while their backstories can be intense and even sad, there is always humor to balance out the emotions. This particular book had me laughing in so many places. Smiling constantly and having to explain to my daughter why I constantly have a goofy expression on my face. Never mind the glowing smile I’m showboating by the last page. This author’s style of writing is fun and refreshing with a ton of sexy banter and characters you can’t help but to fall in love with.

Handle With Care is the fifth book in the Shacking Up series. I loved them all but there was just a little extra something in this book that made this a perfect, all the feels, all the boxes checked, read. If you are a Helena Hunting fan, than I don’t have to explain. If you are new to her, then I wish you happy reading. You’ll love her writing and I absolutely recommend her as a must read author.

Lincoln and Wren…..
Wren currently works for Moorehead Media (Lincoln’s family’s company) as a handler for Armstrong who is Lincoln’s younger brother. Armstrong is a complete misogynistic jerk who doesn’t know how to be discreet or respectful. He is always in trouble and Wren was hired to keep him in line. Lincoln has been out of the country, intentionally for years. He doesn’t hide how much he despises his family but when his father’s heart attack forces him back to New York to take over the family business, it is Lincoln that will need Wren’s attention. You’ll enjoy finding out why, lol.

While Lincoln isn’t a business attire, CEO of a prestigious media company type of guy, he is a gentleman. Lincoln is intelligent and selfless and he is one of, if not, my favorite hero of this series.

I don’t want to say too much about how the story goes. There is a significant suspense element that kept me completely engaged. And while I had some ideas of what was going on, I was just as surprised as Lincoln when the resolution came. That said, the confrontation with the antagonist was one of my favorite moments. I strongly believe in karma. And I love it even more when it has a little push. Trust me on this one my friends…….this is a must read! Add this book to your TBRs.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things

📝My Review📝: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Amazing! Totally Swoon-worthy!
Incredible, fantastic read!

This book tugged at all my heartstrings. From the very first page I was invested. I needed to see this amazing couple get there happily-ever-after. They deserved it so much!

Harrison and Winnie were happily married at one time. But lately, Harrison let his job come first. He didn’t mean to, though. All Harrison wanted was to create a future for him and his precious Winnie. They had made so many dreams over the decade they were together. And when that all came crashing down, it not only broke both their hearts, but mine was hurting too. And that right there is one of the many reasons I loved this book. This author duo had me engaged and eagerly awaiting for Winnie and Harrison’s happy-ever-after. They made me feel everything!

It’s not often I come across books where the H/h are already married. And even though there were only glimpses into their past together, I believed their relationship was special. I felt their love on every page. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that Winnie and Harrison belonged together.

I won’t go into details because I don’t want to ruin the experience of this amazing book for you. I will say that It’s Not Over is angsty and emotional with a good amount of suspense. In addition, there is a cast of secondary characters that bring even more depth and believability to the story. This was a book I immensely enjoyed. I believe there is going to be a book featuring Harrison’s best friend, Chase and Winnie’s sister Gabby. I am looking forward to that book!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

And when that all came crashing down, it not only broke both their hearts, but mine was hurting too. And that right there is one of the many reasons I loved this book. This author duo had me engaged and eagerly awaiting for Winnie and Harrison’s happy-ever-after. They made me feel everything!

It’s not often I come across books where the H/h are already married. And even though there were only glimpses into their past together, I believed their relationship was special. I felt their love on every page. There wasn’t a doubt in my mind that Winnie and Harrison belonged together.

I won’t go into details because I don’t want to ruin the experience of this amazing book for you. I will say that It’s Not Over is angsty and emotional with a good amount of suspense. In addition, there is a cast of secondary characters that bring even more depth and believability to the story. This was a book I immensely enjoyed. I believe there is going to be a book featuring Harrison’s best friend, Chase and Winnie’s sister Gabby. I am looking forward to that book!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Arlie Montgomery is no stranger to tragedy. 
 
In fact, tragedy brought Arlie everything she’d ever dreamed of in one fell swoop. 
As a thriller author, Arlie should’ve had it easy. Growing up in the town of Crimson Falls, there was no shortage of inspiration, after all. 
When her husband’s tragic death becomes national news, Arlie’s failing career skyrockets overnight. Suddenly she has everything she ever wanted, except the man she’d hoped to share her dream with. 
As she approaches the anniversary of her husband’s death, Arlie finds a stranger in the woods outside of her town. A man with no memory of who he is or why he came to Crimson Falls. Desperate and lonely, Arlie takes him into her home. 
With the town’s own anniversary—the cursed Founders Day—drawing near, crime levels rise and the annual murders begin. This year, the deaths take on a new twist: the killer is copying the murders from Arlie’s books. 
As suspicions surrounding the stranger grow, Arlie must solve the mysteries she’s spent years writing. In a race against time, Arlie must stop the killer she may have created before he takes out the last victim from her books—her.

When recently divorced Cleo Kemp inherits a house in the small town of Crimson Falls, she jumps at the opportunity to start over in the seemingly idyllic location. A photographer struggling to find work, Cleo stumbles into the woods looking for a dead body announced on her police scanner. But she’s not prepared for what she finds — the body of her handyman, and the only man in town who has seen her at her most vulnerable, Officer Will Truman.

Still reeling from being discarded by her second husband, Cleo has a hard time with trust, keeping everyone at arm’s length. But when she’s thrown into assisting Officer Truman with the case, she becomes consumed by the investigation. As she learns that every neighbor harbors dark secrets, she starts to wonder how she can really call Crimson Falls home, and if she can trust the man she’s starting to care for.

 

 
When the killer strikes again, closer to home than Cleo ever thought possible, she grows desperate to learn the truth. But in a town riddled with secrets, lies, and mysteries, is there such a thing?

Samantha Tillman had one rule after leaving Crimson Falls: Don’t look back.

 

Not at the one thing she loved most.
Not even after the murder of her father.

 

 
When her mother calls, one cold October night, begging for help, Samantha breaks her rule and returns to the town where her self-destructive coping habits were created in the hopes that she can save her mother.

 

 
But when she arrives back at her childhood home, she is confronted with the past and people she had desperately tried to forget, and the realization that a part of her never really left the town behind. 

As Founders Day approaches, increasingly disturbing events occur in Crimson Falls, and Samantha is reminded of the insidious nature of the people who reside there. Truth has consequences, and as she wrestles to find a way out of the madness, trying to escape again could cost her life.

But at what cost?

 

When a road trip leads her to the cursed town of Crimson Falls, she discovers it holds the key to the thing she’s been searching for her entire life. But she isn’t prepared for how dark her past is, or what it will cost her to find out the truth.
Sometimes questions are better left unanswered.

Pranks are all fun and games until someone dies…

Renee Harding can’t wait to graduate high school and leave Crimson Falls, a town that’s never been kind to her. But before she can dream any further about her future and the plans she and her best friend Jackson might make, she learns of a prank three bullies plot against him.
Too late to warn him of the trick that is aimed his way, she arrives at the scene in time to witness a murder. Gone. Just like that, Jackson is dead, all because of three close-minded jerks who’d wanted some fun.

 

A storm prevents her from informing the police, forcing her to confront the reality that Jackson is dead. But the next day, when she discovers something unexpected at school, it seems her story might be contradicting. And later, when strange things happen, targeting the trio of bullies, Renee questions what is real. But these bullies don’t care for a taste of their own medicine, and one threatens Renee to stop.

Only, she’s not to blame. She hasn’t done a thing except hang on to the truth, one she’s not so sure of anymore. Nothing will break her determination to seek answers, though. Even if it means confronting the threat of the people and reality she fears most.

What drives a man to become a killer?
 
When Dr. Meredith Bowen gets the opportunity to interview Duane Tolloch, a man convicted of committing multiple murders between 1965 and 1967, all she can think about is the needed boost this assignment will give to her career. A seasoned psychiatrist, she is no stranger to the darker regions of the human mind, but as Tolloch relates his tale of a “town curse” and a cycle of abuse that stretches back before he was even born, his story shakes Meredith’s preconceived notions about the nature of the human psyche, as well as her faith in science, to the core.
 
Was Tolloch simply a man who chose the wrong path, or did his abusive childhood create the monster he grew up to be?
Or could the theory of the town curse actually be true?
