The crown is mine. Revenge was dealt. But at what cost?

I’ve destroyed those who have wronged me, but lost a piece of myself along the way.

The boy I love, hates me and I hate him. We’ve both done things that can’t be forgiven and as much as the connection between us burns, I’m not sure it’s enough to fix what we broke.

I’m a broken queen, in a tainted kingdom and maybe I got what I deserved…

If I’d known then what I know now, I’d never have tried to reclaim my crown.

After fleeing London and the scandal that tore my family apart, I’m left broken, confused, and mourning a life I never realized was so fragile. I’m used to being on top. I’m used to being admired, and now I’m desperate for a way back in.

I think I’ve found it when I see Aston Cole—my first crush, my first kiss—at my new school. But Ash isn’t who he used to be. He’s the king. And me… well, I’m not going down without a fight—even with the lies and secrets filling the school halls around us.

Review: Knights Of Arcanum Academy by Bella Holiday & Nicole Marie

Length: 285 pages

Published: August 29, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

Every school has at least one bully. So, of course, Arcanum Academy has four.

And worse? Not only are they equipped with looks that could kill, but they’ve got magic, too.

Lachlan. Alexander. Sebastian. Gabriel. These boys are strictly off limits. Taboo. So high in a class of their own, I’d be surprised if they even knew my name… Even with me being stuck in each one of their classes.

Not that I care.

The conceited asshats think their god-like bodies, expensive cars and filthy attitudes make them the most desirable beings to ever have had the disprivilege to walk the halls of the Academy. And they act like they have some big secret only they’re good enough to know about.

But I can say that, without a doubt, I’d rather eat dirt than spend time with any one of their elitist boys club, let alone care about their stupid secret.

Because what they don’t know is, I’ve got a secret of my own. One they’d do anything in their power to find out… Including making my life a living hell.

Arcanum Academy is a mature Reverse Harem Bully Romance set in a magic academy in Scotland, with full steam, dangerous magic and mysterious men in kilts that are too hot to handle. Contains foul language and sexual content.

My Thoughts 💭

I really liked this book but I felt it started of kind of slow. Sarah has no knowledge of who she really is. She’s just lost her mother and is sort of guided to attend a magical history school that isn’t what it seems. By the time the action starts its over before you know it lol! It’s a slow burn romance so not much happens between Sarah and her bullies. I’m definitely interested in reading the next book.

Review: Cruel Magic by Eva Chase

Length:300 pages

Published: May 8, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

I thought I was ordinary Rory Franco: college student, artist, and over-protected daughter. Then mages barge into my family’s home, murder my parents, and whisk me off to a university known to the rest of magical society as Villain Academy.

It turns out I’m Persephone Bloodstone, the long lost heir to one of the five royal families of dark magic. I’m destined to learn how to manipulate the world with fear—and to stand beside the four other scions: the scorching-hot, arrogant young men who rule this school.

Unfortunately, I’m having trouble locating my supposedly wicked skills. I don’t want to use a power that feeds off people’s pain, but I have to tap into my talents fast if I want to survive. I’ve got no time to grieve for my family. The students here are even more vicious than the teachers, and my fellow scions are worst of all.

The four of them crush anyone who doesn’t kowtow. No way will I bow to any villain, no matter how brutally alluring. They can turn on the charm or tear me down, but they can’t break me, even if I can barely get my magic working.

They’ve never met anyone like me before. I don’t care about ruling. I just want to avenge the people I loved.

It doesn’t matter what kind of power runs through my veins. I’m taking Villain Academy down.

*Cruel Magic is the first in a university-age paranormal academy series. Expect magical villainy, a tough heroine who bends to no one’s will, a dollop of steam, and a slow-burn reverse harem romance where there’ll be no choosing required.*

My Thoughts 💭

This book wasn’t for me and I normally enjoy a good bully romance. None of these guys have any good qualities. Connar has you thinking he may be in Rory’s corner but he’s not because his best friend Malcom might have a crush on Rory but has treated her horribly after watching the only parents she’s known be murdered in front of her. They’re all cowards but especially Declan. Jude is a jerk. Rory is awesome and I’d love for her to wield her magic and have them all on their knees. I’m not sure I’ll read the next one.

Trailer
Excerpt
He’s so
close now, all the ridges of his abs underneath his shirt are visible, and it’s
almost making me want to reach out and touch them.

Stop this, Sam. Just fucking stop it.

“You make me
laugh,” he mutters, placing both hands on the windowsill behind me, caging me
inside his arms once again.

Goddammit.

“You piss
me off,” I reply.

“Keep
telling yourself that,” he quips.

One of his
hands slides from the windowsill to my hand, and I freeze. His warm hand feels
like lightning shooting all over my skin as it travels up my arm.

“You should
know better than to taunt me,” he says, leaning in to whisper in my ear. “I
like scared little girls … like you.”

His tongue
dips out and grazes along the rim of my ear. A chill runs up my spine as he
places his other hand on my knee. The oxygen is knocked right out of me when he
slides it upward along my thigh.

“You’re a
dirty girl, aren’t you?” he whispers, adding a groan that sets my body on fire.
“I like that.”

His hand
creeps up my red and black checkered skirt, fingers curling underneath the
fabric of my panties.

Shit. Shit. Shit. Why am I letting him do this?
He’s the bad guy.

He groans
again, tugging at the elastic to pull them down. “You’re a filthy … little …
thief.”

RIP!

In one
quick pull, he’s torn them straight off.

I gasp in
shock as he holds my panties in his hand, wearing a victorious grin on his
face.

“What
the—?”

He brings
them to his face and takes a whiff, a delicious moan grumbling in his throat.

“I’ll hold
onto these,” he murmurs, stuffing them into his pocket.

And after a
dirty look, he turns around and walks off.

“What?” I
mutter, ignoring the throbbing sensation between my legs.

He glances
at me over his shoulder. “Consider it a down payment … I’ll give them back if
you give me those pictures within a day. And if you don’t, I’ll find more
creative ways to tempt you.”

So that’s
what this is all about. Extortion. I should’ve known, shouldn’t have been so
gullible to assume he’d ever feel something for me. Playing with lust as though
it’s a goddamn tool.

I spit at
him, but it lands on the floor. “You’re a disgusting piece of shit, Nate
Wilson.”

He doesn’t
even look at me when he says, “Believe me, I know.”

Then he
closes the door on me.

Excerpt
Nate stands
near the edge of the bathroom, facing the window, head down between his
shoulders, hands firmly planted on the windowsill, fingers sprawled but
crooked, as if he’s trying to crack his nails against the stone. A picture I
could paint in a heartbeat.
“I know
you’re there,” he says, his voice gravelly, painful. As though he’s wounded and
ready to lash out.
I should
run and hide. Take my pride and stride while I still own it. He could strip me
bare of everything I am and throw me to the masses to be ridiculed. He’s Falcon
Elite’s star athlete; a guy with a promise of a bright future. A person with so
much baggage you don’t dare touch them.
But I do.

My hand has
already reached for him and grazed his shoulder.
He
immediately turns around.
I take a
few steps back.
“Are you
stalking
me now?” he growls,
snorting. “Pathetic.”
He
breathes, walks, and talks like a monster. A man obsessed with one thing and
one thing only. Me.
“I’m not.
You started it,” I reply, still stepping back until I’m backed into a corner of
the toilets with no escape. He’s already blocked the door with his huge frame.
The only way out is by passing him. Shit.
He leans in
and traps me between him and the wall. “Why did you follow me?”
My heart
beats in my throat and I swallow away the lump in my throat.
“I … wanted
to know.”
“What? How
a guy like me can stoop to that level? Why I even try? If I’ll give up?” He
looks into my eyes like he’s trying to search for the truth but I don’t have it
for him.
“Tell me,”
he says.
“Why you
said you thought my painting was beautiful.” It sputters out of my mouth before
I realize it.
I don’t
mean to be so forthcoming, but when he looks at me like that with those
penetrating eyes it just happens. And something about the way he clenches his
jaw and then bites his lip undoes me.
“Because
it’s the truth,” he says with such a serious face that I find it hard not to
believe him.
He snorts.
“But you’ll obviously think that’s a lie.”
“No,” I
respond.
His eyes
narrow. He brings one hand to his face and rubs his jaw. “Liar.”
The silence
is overpowering. Seconds feel like minutes as his breath slows, but I can feel
every one of them prickling on my skin.
“Is this
really all about the pictures?” I ask.
He cocks
his head, and leans in even further until his breath is against the side of my
cheek and my whole body is covered in goose bumps. “That’s for me to know and
for you to find out.”
A gasp
escapes my mouth when his lips briefly brush past my ear.
“Tell me …
are you scared of me?” he whispers.
I want to
answer, but my throat feels numb and my head dizzy.
When our
eyes connect, the tension is like lightning electrifying me from the inside
out. This can’t be happening, it
can’t
be that … I can’t
want this.
A devious,
sexy smirk appears on his face. “Thought so.”
Then he turns
around and walks out, leaving me out of breath … and with my heart lost to a
boy I shouldn’t ever crave.

Blog Tour/Arc Review: Alpha Bully Renee Rose

USA Today bestselling author Renee Rose delivers on this intense bully romance with a paranormal twist.

SHE RUINED EVERYTHING… I WILL MAKE HER PAY.

Her mom robbed my dad of his job. Destroyed his life.

Now I have to look at her every day.

The girl next door. A human. A hot little nerd.

She doesn’t belong here—not in Wolf Ridge,

not at our high school, definitely not in my life.

She doesn’t know what I am.

Which makes it all the easier to take revenge.

I will bring her to her knees. Pierce her heart.

Make her bleed. For me.

All for me.

NOTE: This New Adult book features steamy scenes with characters over eighteen and is for an audience that is also over eighteen.

My Thoughts 💭

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was a well written bully romance! I enjoyed Cole realizing he has strong feelings for Bailey and fighting it but ultimately losing the battle and accepting defeat! The steam and drama made this a page turner for me!

Cole

It’s past midnight when I wake up. My window’s open, moonlight streaming in.

That wasn’t what woke me, though.

It wasn’t the pain of the beating, either. That’s already half-healed. By tomorrow it will be nothing.

That’s the thing about wolf discipline. It’s more about dominance and humiliation than actual pain. Casey and I aren’t in real danger.

But that doesn’t mean the shit doesn’t hurt.

I rub the stubble on my chin and blink into the darkness. There’s a tug on my wolf, pulling me to the window. And I know exactly what I’m going to see when I look out.

Even so, my heart stutters.

The little human is standing outside. Standing underneath my window, looking up.

Like she’s waiting for me and she knew I’d come. Prickles run across my skin.

She’s in the same dress she wore today⁠—another short one, blue and white stripes. She lost the Converse, though. She’s barefooted on the crushed granite. Which must hurt her tender human feet.

I’m in gym shorts. I pull on a black tank top as I stare down at her.

She’s standing there like a fucking tribute. A virginal offering.

She must really feel guilty.

I shove the window open and pop the screen out. It’s not the first time I’ve climbed out this window, but I try not to make it look too easy when I scale across the patio overhang and drop to the gravel in front of her. “Hey.”

She’s crying. Silent tears that streak down her pale cheeks. I wonder if she ever stopped. If she’s been leaking those salty tears since she saw the ugliness that is my dad shit-faced. The scent of her tears does something to me. Makes me itchy and raw, with the need to smash things with my fists.

“Stop it.” I sound menacing. I’m not sorry. She silently called me out here. She’s gonna get what she gets. I advance on her like a fucking predator.

She backs up. She must sense how dangerous I am right now. How unhinged.

“Was it because of me?”

Of course it was because of her. But I’m not going to say that. That shit isn’t her fault.

Instead, I growl, “Stop crying for me.”

Her big brown eyes are wide. I wonder how well she can see me in the dark. Not nearly as well as I can see her.

“Stop it,” I command. “I’m the one who got the beatdown.”

“Cole.” It’s a broken syllable. So much emotion packed into one sound. Apology. Pleading. Desperation, even.

My control snaps. I snatch her face up to mine with a hand behind her head and devour her mouth. It tastes like all the emotion I heard.

Except more.

I savor gratitude and soft, supple generosity. Pent up anger. Grief.

Desire.

I scoop my forearm under her ass to pick her up and slam her back against the tan stucco of her house.

She opens her lips for me, lets me in. It’s not how I imagined it.

It’s better.

More raw. Sweeter, even though I’m fucking brutal with my attack. Her lips twist over mine with the same intensity, her nails claw into my bare shoulders. I shove the bulge of my cock in the cradle of her legs, even though I know it will probably scare the shit out of her.
