Synopsis

Lions, tigers and jaguars are just the beginning of Ella’s problems…

As an unremarkable stray left out on the streets, Ella thought she’d finally found a family in the Hill pride. Instead, she found herself living as a glorified maid, serving the future King of the colony himself.

Axel is rude and careless at best. At worst? He’s downright cruel, and he seems to take personal delight in reminding Ella that she’ll never belong. Too bad her heart never got the memo.

Axel and his perfect girlfriend are all but destined to rule the colony, but when the Unveiling comes around, it’s Ella who’s chosen as the next Empress by the moon itself.

And the claws are out.

Now every tom in the colony is vying for Ella’s attention, including bad boy Axel, the current Empress’ gorgeous son Bishop, and a mysterious Academy professor named Sterling whose ice blue eyes are every bit as dangerous as his caustic wit.

Choosing between the three of them is hard enough, but an inconvenient heat has other ideas. Ella’s sure she’s living her own Cinderella story. She’s just not sure if she’s the princess or the mouse.

My thoughts 💭

This was a good start to the series. I just wish a little more would’ve happened before the cliffhanger. Ella is a stray who isn’t treated very well and she’s chosen to be the next Empress to the shock of most people. Ella is a sweetheart who’s just trying to make it through academy but jealous and scared folks are being kind of ridiculous. Ella is the next chosen Empress and everyone is going to treat her like a pariah…Axel is a selfish jerk but I liked Bishop and Sterling and wanted her to choose them but maybe next book.

Synopsis

Let me ask you a question:

If someone is vying for your spot on a team and just so happens to injure you during practice, would you believe it was on purpose?

Word around campus is . . . it was no accident.

That injury has cost me everything; my starting position, my junior year—and the draft. Now, I’m a senior fresh off recovery, struggling to find my groove, until the day I run into a nervous, fidgety, girl with freckles, in the dining hall.

They call Milly Potter The Baseball Whisperer, The Diamond Wizard, and The Epitome of All Knowledge. She believes in baseball. She breathes it. She’s the queen of an infamous dynasty, but no one actually knows who she really is, and she plans to keep it that way.

One mishap in the panini line, one miscommunication in the weight room, and many failed attempts at an apology equal up to one solid truth — Milly Potter never wants to speak to me again — no matter how good my forearms look.

Little do we both know, she’s about to become more than just my fairy ballmother.

My thoughts 💭

I loved this book even though the last few chapters had me in tears! This book gave me all the feels! I laughed and cried and wanted to punch Carson in the throat. Milly knows baseball. Carson needs her and he gets her and they are the most adorable couple ever! Then tragedy comes along and makes everyone cry until they kiss and make up. I definitely recommend this book!

PRETTY LIES

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: March 2, 2020
Genres: Adult, New Adult, Mafia Romance, Romantic Suspense

SYNOPSIS

Pretty things always tell lies …

Cory Rossi isn’t what you would expect the youngest son of the Chicago mob’s underboss to be. Despite what everyone thinks, he can actually do what he’s told. He just does it his own way. The problem with that is every tattooed- and leather-covered inch of him screams one thing to Della Costello—total heartbreak. It’s all men like him do, right? One hook-up, when he didn’t even know her name, was all she could afford.

Their one-time encounter should have stopped there. But an ex that causes problems for her business—and the mob’s—and Cory becomes her new shadow until the bullets quiet in the streets. It gets harder and harder to stay out of his bed.

They’ll walk a fine line.
And there is no mercy in this tragedy.

For love and lost blood, once more, Chicago will rage.

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

Cory flashed his teeth in a grin. “You out?”

That’s all he needed to ask.

His brother would understand.

“Would you hate me if I said yes?” Joe returned with a lazy smirk.

“Nah, I figured once I got a few drinks into you, then you’d be ready to head home.”

“Oh?”

A shrug lifted his shoulders. “Is what it is, bro.”

That was it, and that was all.

Joe didn’t have the same priorities as Cory at the end of every day now, and he got that. He didn’t need his brother to tell him to know that Joe’s mind hadn’t been very far from his wife and newborn son from the moment they walked into their club for a good time.

Besides …

“I got you out to blow the fucking stink off you,” Cory said, straightening up in the booth and eyeing the dancing crowd for something—or someone—interesting. He’d know what it was when he found it. “I’ll count that as a win.”

On another night, when Joe was less drunk and tired, he probably would have had a smart ass, cutting comment for Cory in reply. Instead, he just shook his head and smiled like he knew the truth.

“You know, if all you really want is to spend some time with me, you just gotta say, Cory.”

Yeah, well

“I told Liliana,” Cory said simply. “She came up with a better plan.”

Because usually, he’d just cause some shit to get his brother’s attention. It always worked before. He was trying a new thing—one that didn’t end up with someone in trouble, mostly him and Joe, or worse.

He figured that was good.

Mature.

Whatever.

“Let Max know at the door,” Cory said, “because I already had someone ready to drive you home when you were ready to go. He’s probably got the car close by the entrance.”

Joe sighed. “And what are you doing for the rest of your night?”

Cory’s gaze finally stopped in its search of the dancing swell of people when he found a brunette with a shimmering, black club dress tossing back a round of shots right off the tray of a server. In towering heels that showed off all kinds of smooth, tanned legs in that short dress, the woman spun around to join another female waiting. The fast movement made the blonde and red highlights in her long, wavy brown hair catch the lights overhead. The women started dancing again. Now that he had found her in the crowd, he couldn’t seem to look away.

Not that he minded.

She was quite a sight.

Every inch of her—from the curves of her hips to the glowing sheen on the valley of her breasts where that dress dipped dangerously low, and even the red on her lips—screamed fuckable. He tried not to objectify women upon first sight. It wasn’t a particularly admirable trait in a man, after all.

The brunette made it easy, though.

Damn.

She’d tossed back five shots one after the other. Not a flinch in sight. That meant one of two things to Cory.

The brunette was looking to forget something, or she wanted one hell of a night. Either way, he could provide both of those things. That was, if she was interested. He simply needed to make his way over to her and find out.

But first, Joe.

“Well?” Joe asked. “Do you need me to make sure you get home, too? Or are you not done here?”

Cory was already standing from the booth. “Not even close to done, bro.”

The only thing he could guarantee was that he’d make it home to take his dog, Mace, out for a piss, because the animal depended on him. The pup was the only thing that ever gave him a real sense of responsibility. He would be drunk when he got home, likely, but he always had a mob enforcer waiting in the wings to do the driving when needed.

And that was it. Everything else was up in the air. He liked it that way.

“Talk to Max—it was my deal with Liliana,” Cory told his brother as he passed by him in the booth to exit. “You’re not driving home.”

“Yeah, I got it. I don’t know what caught your attention out there on the floor, but you know the fucking rules, yeah?”

Joe called that at his retreating back.

Cory just laughed.

He was way too drunk to be picking up a brunette in his club to fuck, if he were being honest. The way the room looked as he walked away—a little too fuzzy, maybe—told him that.

What did it matter?

Fun was still fun.

“The rule, Cory!”

“Yeah, yeah.” He waved a hand high over his shoulder, and his fingers made the peace sign that quickly turned into just his middle finger standing up. “I know the rule—don’t be stupid.”

Sometimes, that was when he had the most fun.

He just knew better than to say it.

Review: Havoc At Prescott High by C.M. Stunich

Length: 482 pages

Published: November 9, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

There’s one word you don’t utter at Prescott High, not unless you want them to own you.

H.A.V.O.C.

Hael, Aaron, Victor, Oscar, and Callum.

The Havoc Boys rule the hellhole we call Prescott High.

Once upon a time, they ruled me. For an entire year, I endured their shit.

But senior year is going to be different.

This year, I own them.

I’ve made a pact with the Havoc Boys to get the vengeance I deserve.

Their price? Me. At their beck and call, in their beds, a part of their gang.

Their girl.

A Havoc Girl.

Those dirty, rotten boys are going to get revenge against everyone that’s wronged me—everyone but themselves.

HAVOC AT PRESCOTT HIGH is a 105,000 word mature high school/new adult romance with enemies-to-lovers/love-hate themes. It has brief flashbacks of past bullying incidents as well as foul language and sexual scenes; any sex featured is consensual. This is a reverse harem novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. This is book one of three in the series.

My thoughts 💭

I can’t wait to read the next book! Bernadette is out for revenge so she calls upon the Havoc boys to help her even though they tormented her for a while. They accept and the price is she’s now theirs but Vic is possessive! This book is crazy and filled with drama. I definitely recommend!

Review: The Boss’s Mistress by Scott Wylder

Length: 43 pages

Published: October 13, 2019

Rating:⭐️⭐️

Source: Kindle Unlimited

Synopsis

What did I do when I found out my new boss was my ex from college?

I almost chucked my new career out the window, that’s what.

He broke my trust in college when he broke my heart.

We had a terrible breakup that gave me trust issues for life.

Now I am alone in the big city and rich, sexy Kit’s is the only familiar face in town.

And he seems to be interested in re-lighting the flames of our relationship.

Even though my mind tells me to run away, my heart tells me to stay.

People can change. Right?

Doesn’t everyone deserve a second chance?

Kit is determined to do everything in his power to win me back.

With our past breakup looming large in my mind, it’s not going to be easy.

Will our past and my inability to trust, drive us apart?

My thoughts 💭

This was an okay read for me. It felt like there was barely any interaction between Lisa and Kit. He had cheated on her in college so it would’ve been nice if he’d had to grovel a little bit before it’s skipped ahead to 2 years later then ending. I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t this. It felt like a summary then a little conversation between the main characters.
