✯Release Review w/Giveaway✯The Evolution of Us by D. Kelly

Cover Design: Kassi Snider / KassiJean Formatting and Design
Release Date: October 11, 2017


They say most people meet the person they will marry while in high school. Balancing one another perfectly, Holly Ryan and Declan James were together through most of college—until their relationship blew up, leaving Declan with more questions than answers. For the past two years, Declan has tried everything he can think of to earn Holly’s forgiveness, but even if he manages to help her let go of the past and give them another chance at happiness, she still has a secret. Not to mention, she can’t get over the revolving door of women he seems to have coming in and out of his apartment. Declan is desperate to prove to Holly she’s the one for him and isn’t above using his celebrity status or enlisting the help of their friends to win her back. All’s fair in love and war, right?

✯✯5 Second Chance Stars!!!✯✯

A new book by D. Kelly and its another hit! This was a standalone and I couldn't put it down. Most of Dee's books are tear jerkers. This one wasn't, instead I ended up laughing out loud from the main characters and their two best friends.

Holly met Declan when she was 14yrs old. They started out as friends until 16 and dated for years before taking it to the next step. They were together all the way up until middle of college years when they got into a fight over a misunderstanding and it resulted in Declan breaking up with Holly.

Two years has passed and Declan  has regretted breaking up with Holly. He figured if he moved in across the hall from her and bring women in and out of his apartment she'd eventually take him back. Its obvious he doesn't know women all that well lol. 

Declan doesn't have your normal Mon-Fri 9-5 job. Nope, he makes all his money through social media. He's a YouTuber kind of guy. Makes videos and also does live videos where he rambles his thoughts. One night he professes his love for her and his need to be with her.

Holly has always loved Declan. He was her first love and wanted him to be her last. But, on night everything changed. One of Holly's  worst days ever and while waiting for Declan she is with her best friend Sage until he gets home. Sage and Holly are having a conversation and Declan hears some of it and it blows outta proportion. 

If that wasn't bad enough its continued getting worse for Holly. Declan has moved across the hall from her. He's paraded woman and after woman in and out of his apartment since he moved in across the hall from her. 

Holly just wants Declan to stop. Wants him to stop bringing the woman back to his apartment and shoving into her face. When Holly hears his declaration of love for her on his channel. Unfortunately Declan doesn't know the meaning of no. 

Declan and Holly make a deal. Declan has to cut off all physical contact with other woman and Holly will go on weekly dates with him. 

I legit couldn't put this down. It was obvious from the beginning that they were in love. But, then add in their past into the story and there's so much more learned. 

Both come from broken homes. Holly living with her dad and Declan living with his mom. They understood each other and supported each other. 

I must talk about their best friends. Baxter and Sage. They're 4 best friends. When they broke up Holly made the decision it had to split too. Holly got Sage and Declan got Baxter. Sage reminds myself a lot of me with the crazy nasty things that come outta my mouth. 

But, it was Declan and Baxter's friendship that truly truly shined in this book. Baxter is gay and very open.  But, he wasn't always. I won't say or give anything away. But, the way Declan handled things was great. Even things Declan did for Baxter so he always had a wingman aren't things most straight guys wouldn't think of doing. But, Declan being the man and friend he is didn't think twice. Beautiful and hot!

All in all it is another must read from Dee and I'm super glad I read it. It's a true standalone. Even though I would've loved Sage and Baxter to get a book. I'm still happy with how those two story ended. I am looking forward to Dee's next book.

Resus Blurb.png
Trust. No. One.
A mantra that Dr. Cian O’Reilly has lived by; never allowing any new insiders to pierce his inner circle. Until her. Dr. Athena Payne was his game changer, the woman he wanted to bring into his cloak of darkness; to share in his malicious desires of torture and terror as the executioner of all who escaped justice. But when faced with an alleged betrayal of that trust, how far will he go to seek his vengeance?
Love. Conquers. All.
Three words that Athena Payne has always believed whole-heartedly. In her determination to become a brilliant heart surgeon, her thirst for knowledge tossed her headlong into a hidden conspiracy, a deadly game of death intertwined with the complications of love. Trusting and loving Cian may very well be the last things she ever does as she’s faced with paying the ultimate price for allowing him into her heart.
Save a life. Take a life.
Will the hardest kill Cian’s ever faced be his last? As others circle closer to learning his true identity, interns and attendings alike face the possibility of losing everything they’ve fought so hard to gain.
Trust no one. Let love conquer all. And prepare for a shocking ending that you won’t see coming in this third installment of the Trauma Series.
Lincoln Hospital, where the cure can be your worst nightmare.
Warning: Contains violent and graphic situations not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen. This is the third book in the "Dexter" meets "Grey's Anatomy" series and ends on a cliffhanger. All books must be read in order to follow the series.

✯✯5 Heart Stopping Stars!!!✯✯

 Holy mother of evil! If you haven't read the first two books of this series then stop and read them first before you read this book. These books legit start exactly where the cliffhanger left you at. 

Athena has been set up as the mole. Cain can't see or think straight to know for sure if it is true. But, in true Cain form he takes matters into his own hands. 

Cain is the judge, the executioner and whatever judgment he thinks you deserve is what you'll get. He's never second guessed himself once the "patient" is on his OR table. Until he really looks into her eyes. Now he must fight before it's too late and he really looses her forever.

Resuscitation is non-stop action and non-stop mind-blowing madness. With Cain trying to find out who the mole was and the world trying to figure out who the watcher is, there are so many questions. 

I'm going to say much more BC it would give something away. I  did NOT see that ending coming. Not even from a football field away. Cassia better not make me wait long for the next book. Cassia better be writing!!

On the twenty-third day—he hunts, bringing the scum of the earth to justice; his justice. Ending up as a patient on Dr. O’Reilly’s table could either save your life or end it in the most horrific way.
New York City. The infamous city that never sleeps; the place where dreams either shine brightly or shatter into razor sharp pieces of metal. For Dr. Cian O’Reilly, it’s the perfect city to disguise his dark alter ego. As a top surgeon at Lincoln Hospital, he has access to resources far beyond the reach of the average person; the ideal cover for his double life. By day, he’s the epitome of professionalism. By night, the facade is stripped away and his true depraved self is revealed.
When Dr. Athena Payne joins the roster as a new surgical intern, Cian’s carefully constructed life is thrown into turmoil. With her sunny smile and wide-eyed innocence, she threatens to break through his iron-like exterior, exposing the man beneath. Following her dream of becoming a cardiovascular surgeon, her internship at Lincoln Hospital is the first step in achieving her goals. Something about the dark air of mystery that surrounds her new boss, Dr. Cian O’Reilly, leaves Athena questioning just what it is that the good doctor is hiding.
A killer on the loose. A doctor wielding a deadly blade. An intern caught in the midst of first love and a lethal web of murder.
Lincoln Hospital. Where the cure can be your worst nightmare.

✯Review✯The Pine Forest (The Iridescent Realm #2) by Michelle Dare


One touch, one spark, two lives forever changed.

Pine and Azure. The war between the two kingdoms lasted far too long. Peace was finally established, but the survivors would never forget who fought on the front lines. Oliver Sage had a reputation for being a ruthless knight. He’d seen enough death to last a lifetime and worked on putting the past behind him, although not all would let him forget.

Addison was the only daughter of King and Queen Azure. With three brothers, she knew she’d always be protected, but she also wanted to learn how to take care of herself. She was strong, had a good heart, and wanted to be treated as an equal. Magical abilities ran in her family, and she had one no one knew of.

Oliver had given his heart to one princess, until the night he dreamed of another. Addison was the last woman he should desire, especially given who she was. However, what if she wanted him as well? They’d hated each other their entire lives, but suddenly couldn’t resist the desire which built between them. There were also those who didn’t think they should be together. Forbidden romance could only stay hidden for so long in the dark depths of the Pine Forest.

✯✯5 Sage Stars!!!✯✯

When I finished The Azure Kingdom I couldn't wait to jump into the next book. I was excited to learn it was going to be Oliver and Addison's story.

Oliver Sage was promised Kine Pine's daughter Allison hand in marriage. Even though she wasn't around Oliver had thought of their lives together. Then, she showed up one day and met and fell in love with Lucas Azure. He enemy. After an altercation and change in leadership over the Pine kingdom there was a seize fire fire between the Azure and Pine kingdoms. Against his better judgment and everything he wanted Oliver watched Allison marry Lucas Azure.

Just when Oliver thought things couldn't get worse he saw Addison  the Princess  of the Azure kingdom. When Addison trips and Oliver catches her from falling both of their lives are changed. 

Addison is the princess of the Azure kingdom and has three brothers. She knows no matter who she dates it won't be easy. When the knight Sage stops her from falling something happens. She's hated him and his kingdom for as long as she can remember. But, her dad king Azure and Allison's brother Reid, the new king to Pine kingdom, they're moving forward. 

Both Oliver and Addison never thought the kingdoms could move forward. Until one night they were in each other dream. Addison knew it was possible from her brother. But, this was more. They could interact with each other. Both shocked and pissed off at first. But, then it changed friendly until their feelings grew more. 

As much as Oliver and Addison felt about each other they chose to keep their feelings towards each other a secret. They're not sure how the people of their kingdoms will feel about it. Addison's not sure how her family ESP her brothers will react to it. Oliver knows his king/best friend Reid will be fine with it. But, he'll do whatever Addison wants.

I absolutely loved this book! A little more so then the first book. And, there is only one reason why. It was told in multiple POV! I wanted in Lucas's head. I was ecstatic to see I got Oliver's. 

There was nothing I disliked about this book. Oliver and Addison's was complete opposite of Lucas and Alison's. This was an enemy to lovers relationship. They def had more to prove to each other than anyone else. The way Michelle wrote their story was beautiful.

Oliver is your typical bad ass knight. One who fights to protect his people and king. He also wants to love and be loved in return. 

Addison may be the princess. But, she's never acted like one. She's definitely one of the guys. Addison has a soft side for animals and  loved it. I love how Addison worries about everyone else's feelings over her own. She's a true princess.

I am super excited for Elliot's story and the introduction of a new kingdom. This series is so much fun. Michelle can legit go anywhere and do anything with it. Even though I am looking forward to all these other kingdoms being introduced, I'm hoping Reid gets his told. Between dealing with his father, now a new king and being single. Michelle give that man a HEA. I can't wait for the next book.

✯Cover Reveal w/Giveaway✯My Week with the Bad Boy by Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish

Title: My Week with the Bad Boy
Authors: Brooke Cumberland & Lyra Parish
Genre: Contemporary Romance / Standalone
Cover Design: RBA Designs
Photographer: FuriousFotog
Model: Joey Berry
Never trust a man who answers the front door wearing nothing more than a pair of low-cut jeans and a panty-melting smirk.
That should’ve been my first sign. I write about guys just like him for a living—sexy and charming, yet reluctant to get into a serious relationship. His body screams sex appeal, but his condescending personality makes him a classic fuckboy.  And I want nothing to do with that. Writing romance novels comes with its perks—traveling, meeting new people, creating characters from the voices in my head—but Ethan Rochester enters my life and rearranges all my preconceived notions about writing what inspires you.  One week is all it took. One week to realize that not everything is as it seems. One week with the bad boy, and I wanted more.
*except is unedited and subject to change.* 
I’m pretty sure I need CPR or some kind of life-saving equipment.
I can’t seem to catch my breath, even though I’m breathing just fine, but the way he just kissed me and then walked away has my mind reeling and my body confused as hell.
His lips were so warm and inviting, I couldn’t pull away. I didn’t want to pull away and that’s even more confusing to me than I like admitting. However, I can’t deny the way his kiss affected me. The way his body pressed against me. The way my body responded to him like I was some desperate sex-deprived woman.
I’m not by the way. Stupid traitorous body.
I’m still trying to catch my breath when I leave and walk out the back door. Quickly glancing around to make sure Henry isn’t following me again, I walk down the garden path and head back inside the cottage.
I don’t have time to think about Ethan and that kiss, I remind myself.
I don’t have time to analyze the way that kiss made me feel, I also remind myself.
But fuck. It was a really good kiss.
But why did he kiss me? And why did I kiss him back?
Ugh! How dare he kiss me like that!
My mind is all over the place, I can’t keep up with my own thoughts. His proposal repeats in my head. I’m talking myself out of his offer then I’m talking myself into considering it. Would it really be so bad to have one night of fun while I’m here?
What am I even saying?
I palm my forehead, trying to smack the oxygen back into my brain.
This man is making me second-guess everything and is driving me absolutely crazy! I write about heroines who have one-night stands or who fuck a guy after just meeting them, but that isn’t real life. At least not for me. I’ve seen first hand what jumping into a relationship based off sex can do to a couple and it isn’t pretty.
Deciding to march back over there, I don’t bother knocking before letting myself back in. I stomp my way upstairs even though I have no idea where he went, I’m not thinking straight anymore. My heart is racing but I’m determined to give him a piece of my mind.
