✯Review✯Outliers (The Outliers #1) by Kate L. Mary

Blurb

In the dusty ruins of the world, three groups exist: the Sovereign, the Fortis, and the Outliers. Within their walled city, exclusive access to the only remaining technology gives the Sovereign an advantage that seems impossible to beat. In exchange for meager scraps and free reign outside the walls, they use the brawn of the Fortis to their advantage while the Outliers struggle to survive. Living on land that has not healed from the poison of the past, and surrounded by dangers too numerous to count, the Outliers have adapted - but to the Sovereign and the Fortis, they are nothing. 

Indra is an Outlier. Each day she braves the wastelands, making the dangerous journey from the wilds where she lives to the City so she can serve the Sovereign in order to give her family a better life. Inside the walls, she has no rights and no freedom. Not only is she powerless to resist the Sovereign’s harsh rule, but she is also unable to do anything to save her people from the brutality of the Fortis. For centuries they have made their abuse of Outliers a sport, but when Asa comes to Indra’s rescue, she sees something different in him. Something that marks him as so much more than just a Fortis guard. 

But as Indra’s world begins to unravel, even the quiet alliance she has formed with Asa cannot save her from the wrath of the Sovereign. In one life-altering moment, everything Indra has ever known is ripped away, forcing her to face a world even more harsh and unforgiving. Broken and scarred, Indra finds herself on a journey that will challenge everything she’s ever been taught, learning along the way that she’s stronger than she ever imagined. Maybe even strong enough to free her people forever. 



✯✯5 Indra Strong Stars!!!✯✯

Kate L Mary has given us the start of an amazing new post-apocalyptic world. The world is left with three different groups of people. The top is the Sovereign and they are sitting pretty. You have the Fortis. They're big and strong and they're the Sovereign's muscle. As long as they keep the Outliers in line the Sovereign give them things like electric and running water. At the bottom with  twice the people then the Sovereign & Fortis put together is the Outliers. The Outliers are spread out and form four tribes.

Indra is part of the Winta tribe. She works for house of Saffron. Indra and her friend Mira must walk thru the wastelands past the Lygan Cliffs thru Fortis and Sovereign city everyday.  

Indra has worked at her job for a few years. The Outliers only get their jobs passed down from family members. She got her a few years ago when her mom was too sick and weak to do it anymore. 

The only thing they receive for their work is food that can’t grow in the wastelands where they live and some medicine for her mom. 

Indra has been chased for years by Brodi. Indra finally realizes she’s in love and they marry in their tribes wedding ceremony. They get into a routine. When Indra isn’t working Bodhi takes her into the woods. While men in their village don’t believe women belong hunting and providing. Bodhi wants her to know how to survive if something were to happen to him. 

Indra continues working in the city. But, the Sovereign are changing how things are done. Of course making the Outliers lives harder and harder. Luckily for Indra there’s Asa. He’s not like the rest of the Fortis people. He stands up for Indra and her friend Mira. 

As weird as it is Indra and Asa end up friends. They don’t interact much. But, they respect each other. Even though Indra loves her husband, Asa makes her feel things she’s not sure how to take. 

One day when Asa isn’t at work things don’t go well for Indra. Her life as well as everybody she cares about changes. Nobody is the same from that day forward. 


I’m hoping this is the start of an amazing story. Once I started it I couldn’t put it down. There’s so many storylines that can be told it’s amazing!!! I can’t wait for more of Indra. She’s my favorite leading lady that I have read this year. Kate L Mary has definitely started another what looks to be one of my favorite series! Can’t wait for book two

✯Release Review✯Comfort Zone(Awkward Love #4)by Missy Johnson




Title: Comfort Zone
Series: Awkward Love #4
Author: Missy Johnson
Genre: Romance
Release Date: June 15, 2018



Blurb

There's nothing quite like watching your professor as he motorboats a stripper.

The expression on his face when he looked up and saw me standing there would've been funny if I wasn't so mortified. I wanted to turn around and run, but I couldn't do that to Jake. It was his bachelor party, after all.

So, instead, we stumbled our way through the world's most awkward conversation, because what do you say after witnessing that?

At least things couldn't get much worse, right?

Wrong.

The real fun began when the guys figured out how we knew each other.

Have you ever heard of the term frottage? Yeah, neither had I. Just like I'd completely underestimated how awkward it would be getting a lap dance from another woman while my professor watches, or how turned on I'd be.

My first mistake was going there in the first place.
My second mistake was not leaving the moment I saw him.
My third mistake, and the one I regret most?

Applying for that TA position with him last week…


** Comfort Zone is a M/F student/professor romance **

**Awkward Love is a series of sexy, fun novels that can be read in ANY order. Each book is COMPLETELY separate from the next, so you can read one, or you can read them all**



✯✯4 Sombrero Filled Stars!!!✯✯

This Awkward Love series by Missy Johnson is amazing! This is the 4th book and every couple start off in very awkward and uncomfortable circumstances. Some circumstances every person reading these books have been in or know somebody who has. 

We met Becca in the previous book and her initial introduction had me pissing my pants bc I was hysterical laughing. So, I was stoked to find out her story was this one. 

Becca’s back at school. And, her teacher is gorgeous. Becca spends the whole class IMing her friend talking dirty about her professor.  Little did Becca know Professor Sullivan was able to read every single IM that’s sent in his class. 

When she does find out Becca is mortified. But, it’s obvious that he liked it and her. Becca can’t think so she’s excited to go to her best friend Jake’s bachelor party. Imagine her surprise when she meets Jake’s cousin.  Yup Professor Sullivan AKA Liam. Becca decides they’re partying at a strip club no time like the present to let loose and give into temptation. 

Teaching was never what Liam thought he’d be doing and having his father as his boss definitely isn’t what he’d want. Having Becca in his class is amusing. Reading her IMs about everything she’d love to do to him is what makes his days. 

When he goes to his cousin Jake’s bachelor party he’s shocked his best friend is Becca. The same Becca who makes him so hard he can hardly stand or teach her class. Liam knows tonight’s going to be interesting and he’s going to use it to his advantage. 


Becca has to go to a ceremony for her parents. I’m not telling you what bc I was crying from laughing so hard when it was explained and continuing to be brought up. Yes, it’s that good lol. She drunkenly invited Liam and didn’t remember. Which he plans on going ESP since he’s got to get his and Jake’s grandma and bring her to the wedding. Considering she has dementia and is lucid one minute and not the next having Becca there to help is a plus. 

When I tell you this was one interestingly funny road trip, I'm not kidding. Liam's grandma legit had me weak I couldn't stop laughing.I also felt for Liam bc my grandma had dementia so I knew how he felt. 

This book I flew thru like the previous one. There was one part of the storyline at the end with Jake and it legit killed it for me. For me it killed the story for me. It was so uncalled for and it did absolutely did nothing for the storyline for Liam and Becca. It would've been better without it. But, other then that I liked this story.

✯Release Review w/Giveaway✯All This Time (Sweet Sin #3) by Kathy Coopmans


Title: All This Time
Series: Sweet Sin
Author: Kathy Coopmans
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Rockstar Romance




Some people claim to have their hearts ripped out of their chests. To feel the world shift under their feet. To feel intoxicated by love.
Miles Wittman, the bassist for the rock band Trained in Black, felt those things until the shift became a hole and dragged him into darkness.
His mind clouded by years of alcohol abuse, the man remembers very little of the last two years of his life.
Until her.
A woman from his past.
Julia Nulty, the band’s manager sister, the sexy, exotic plus-sized model.
Bits and pieces of his memory start to surface after the two of them are caught up in an unexpected photo shoot.
She’s rocked his world. He feels the shift. The intoxication.
But Miles, he has no recollection of the night they spent together. If he finds out the truth of what happened, it could possibly lead him back to the darkness.

**The Sweet Sin series is a series of interconnected standalone rockstar romances.**


✯✯4 Emotional Stars!!!✯✯

Kathy Coopmans sure knows how to write. I wasn’t a fan of the first book. There was too much inner dialogue and not enough interaction between characters. But, every book in this series is better then before and this  is the best one yet. 

Miles grew up in foster care and didn’t have anything to his name. Then he fell in love. He was considered trash to her upperclass stuck up family.  One night Miles had everything within arms length and in a blink of an eye he lost it all. 

Miles is in the biggest baddest most popular rock band and yet he’s wasting his life in alcohol bottles after bottle and then women after women. Miles wanted to die. He wished it every night and every morning. There’s only been one women in all those years that made him feel something he refuses to feel again. 

When Miles finally hit rock bottom his band mates aka his brothers find him a rehab and he ends up there for a year. Now Miles is out and seeing things clearly for the first time in forever. Except all that time drinking has left his memory foggy. There’s time periods missing.  When him and the guys walk into a photo shoot he sees the most beautiful women he’s ever laid his eyes on. It’s obvious to him that they’ve got a past and their connection is flammable. Miles just wants to connect the dots and quick before he looses her again. 

Julia’s life has never been easy. Well it was when her father was alive. But, when he passed away nothing was the same. Her mother is the definition of an evil terrible excuse for a woman and a pathetic excuse for a mother. She lived to ruin and breakdown Julia and her brother Marcus. Julia lived with the abuse so her mother won’t go after Marcus. When she tells her brother he gets her and Julia doesn’t look back. 

Julia makes her living as a plus size model and going around speaking for no body shame. She’s successful. But, her mother’s words still ring in her head. She met the guys from  Trained In Black when her brother started managing them. She has a great friendship with all the guys and now their ladies they’ve made wives. But, there’s a special different connection her and Miles have. Her brother told her everything that’s happened to him to make him who he is today. 

But, that night two years ago Julia was hoping was a game changer for them. Instead Miles acted like it never happened. Julia knows they’ve got a lot to talk about when Miles is ready. Except he doesn’t know who she is and Julia thought he couldn’t hurt her worse then before but boom. Julia loves him. She can’t help it. She’s hoping that they’d finally get on the same page once and for all. 

This  was such a beautifully tragic story. They’re from different sides of the tracks. But, they’ve both underwent abuse. Not the same abuse but it’s still haunting them to this day. 

Miles my heart broke for him. He felt guilty for things that really truly weren’t his fault. Then when his memories start coming back and he’s learning new information he’s dealing with new feelings including staying sober. He’s such a great character and I’m glad I got into his brain in this one. 

Julia’s so strong considering she spent so many years being verbally and emotionally abused by her mother.  The person whose suppose to love her most and that was the farthest from the truth. I loved her for Miles. She finally stopped letting him getaway with things and making him own up to his actions and consequences.  She’s beautiful on the inside and outside. 


I’m so glad Kathy gave me Julia and Mile’s story next in this rock group. I’m hoping she decides to do Brock next. I have a feeling he’s full on stuff too. Oh Kathy you better not stop writing anytime soon. I will hunt you down!

✯Release Review✯Trick (Diablo’s Throne #3) by H.J. Bellus

Title: Trick
Series: Diablo's Throne MMA
Author:HJ Bellus 
Genre: MMA Romance
Publisher: Crave Publishing
Release Date: June 5, 2018
He’s quiet, a thinker who is always three steps ahead of the game—in and out of the ring. 
Trenton “Trick” Jameson is a mystery, even to his fellow fighters at Diablo’s Throne. They only know him as the Country Boy Brawler who left home to chase his dreams. His band of brothers have no idea what he's lost or left behind...
And that’s the way Trick wants it.
With a champion title tied to his name, his future is endless until the raven-haired beauty became his game changer. Mack owned him the moment she stumbled into his world. 
Trick could have never seen the sharp turn his life was about to take. Everything always catches up with you, whether you like it or not. And now, all he's fought for is on the verge of being destroyed. 
What’s a fighter left to do?
Fight.


✯✯5 Tricked Out Stars!!!✯✯ 

Holy smokes!!! HJ Bellus is proving why she belongs on my instant TBR list even if she hadn’t uploaded the synopsis yet. I loved Cruz and Jag. But, Trick yeah he might’ve just gotten bumped to the top! 

Trenton “Trick” Jameson grew up on his families ranch. If it was up to his father he’d take over the ranch one day. But, his mom knows ranching isn’t what he sees for his future. She helps pack his things and pushes him out the door and tells her son to follow his dreams on MMA and be happy. That’s how he found Diablo’s Throne. 

Trick has won championships and he’s not close to stopping. But, he knows his body won’t last forever in the cage. He decides to go to college. Not online classes bc he knows he won’t follow thru. Trick hoped he could go to class and stay under the radar and it’ll be smooth sailing. Unfortunately for Trick when the beautiful girl tripped and landed in his lap things weren’t going to go easily. ESP when some punk makes fun of her. Trick goes into protective mode and plans on not letting anybody hurt her again. 

Mackenzie “Mack” Graham never had it easy. Her home life was a mess and everybody in school treated her like the trash she was. Poor girl was so emotionally abused and worse at school. If it weren’t for her neighbors who became surrogate parents to her she’d never know what family and love felt like. Mack likes not being noticed. 

The day Trick noticed her was the day her entire life changed. He made her want to get noticed. Mack had a bad habit of tripping over her own two feet.  She’s the shy type an introvert and never minded it. But, the more time she spends around Trick the more she wants to be seen. 

Mack goes from this shy skittish thing in the first chapter to a completely different woman at the end. Trick wasn’t the only one to help her. Nope she had Layla and Sunni and let’s not forget their men Cruz, Jag and Boss. They were all there. The family of Diablo’s Throne adopted another into their tight knit family when they met Mack. 

Trick also has a transformation in this story too. He said from the beginning he’s not a rancher and he’d never step foot back on his families ranch. But, when he gets a frantic call, then text from his mom he knows he must go back. Trick knows as long as he has Mack, Boss and the rest of his Diablo’s Throne family he can survive anything. 


Ever since the beginning of this series they’ve always claimed and proved over multiple times they’re family. This was no different. They showed two people who never got love from the ones they’ve craved it the most. They gave them new families. This book was beautifully written. When I got to the epilogue I was crying. I’m hoping this series continues bc I’m not ready to say goodbye to this family yet.


HJ Bellus is a small-town girl who loves the art of storytelling. When not making readers laugh or cry, she's a part-time livestock wrangler that can be found in the middle of Idaho, shot gunning a beer while listening to some Miranda Lambert on her Beats and rocking out in her boots.
