New Release: It All Falls Down

It All Falls Down

He promised he'd never leave. He should have told me. I could have helped. Max came into my life when I didn’t need a man to define me. He didn’t push his way in... not really. He slowly, tirelessly, and patiently waited. He used that damn smile, day in and day out, and waited until I tumbled head over heels in love with him. My grandma always told me to watch out for the pretty boys. The ones that turn you to mush the first time you lay eyes on them. She never warned me about Maxwell Holzer. If there’s one thing in life I’ve always known, it’s that when something goes up, it will most certainly always come crashing down.

The intense need to be next to her, to smell her, comes over me so I walk across the room and smile brightly when I see her push herself back against the door. From what I remember, that smile got to her last time. I mean, the smile gets me a lot of places, but with Nora it gets me what I want. I stalk closer to her, ignoring the work that needs to get done today, and enjoy watching her body start to react to my nearness. The hitched breath, the pebbled nipples showing through her dress, the goosebumps on her soft skin; all unspoken signs she’s turned on. 
“What are you doing?” Nora whispers, watching me move closer to her until I have her boxed in, my hands resting on the door next to her head. 
“What I should have done yesterday,” I whisper. My eyes flick to her lips. We’re so close I can feel her breath on me as her lips part. Nora’s body relaxes, her eyes searching mine, every now and then flicking to my lips. 
I should do it. I should just fucking kiss her.

Review: Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part Two

Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part Two Preppy: The Life and Death of Samuel Clearwater, Part Two by T.M. Frazier
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Preppy, Preppy, Preppy.

Is Part 3 out yet? No. Damn.

Part 2 picks up right where Part 1 ends and TM Frazier sends us moving right off the bat. If you haven't read Part 1, you should probably avoid this entire spoilery review. Seriously, go away now. I'm wordy with reviews as is and considering I can't discuss the happenings in this book without giving away the secrets from Book 1, it's best if you avoid my review until after you've read this series.

I was slow to find the TM Frazier bandwagon. I kick myself every single time I pick up one of her books. King starts this epic series and Preppy is a great way to bring it to a close (assuming it's ending here). I can never decide if I'm happy I got a late start or if I wished that that late start could have been pushed back a bit further so I didn't have to wait for the last Preppy installment. Because the wait is torture.

Which is why, when faced with the fucking end of my life, I spit in the Reaper's face. Because my name is Samuel Clearwater, and I take orders from no one. Not even death.

Yes, Preppy evaded death, but at what cost? What kind of damage does that kind of torture leave behind? Will he ever be the same guy who said his hobby was "Bitches?" That's the Prep I want to see again.

Dre comes back and after that cliffhanger of Book 1 I am glad we get to see more of her. I'm glad we get to see more of Dre and Preppy together. It's all I've wanted to see since I saw the ugly beauty of their relationship. I wanted that story and Frazier gives us more of that.

It's a TM Frazier book so there's death and torture and surprises at every corner. There are drugs and drinking and bonfires. There are kids and love and ink. It's everything you expect from Frazier and more.

Can I have Book 3 now? Okay, thanks.

Happy release day to K Webster​ and J.D. Hollyfield, Author​ for 📱 Text 2 Lovers 📱!



It’s the start of nothing good.
I fired off a storm of raunchy text messages…to the wrong number.
And he replied.
Him: Show me a picture.
Him: Tell me your name.
Why does the lure of anonymity have me craving to indulge a stranger?

It’s the start of everything right.
I received a slew of text messages…when everything in my life was wrong.
And she made me laugh again.
Her: You’re probably a creeper.
Her: Possibly a stalker.
Why do I have the overwhelming need to find this stranger who saved me and make her mine?

Him: Take a chance with me.
Her: This is crazy.
Him: I need to see you.
Her: What are we doing?
Him: We’re about to find out.

Review: Taking Turns

Taking Turns Taking Turns by J.A. Huss
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 It's MY Turn Stars

"I get all of this. You. Every bit of you is mine."

Where do I begin with this Huss book? Should I continue to use the same ol' "she always surprises me, which shouldn't surprise me" line? Maybe "this is a total mindfuck that only Julie can deliver?" How about "HOLY FUCK THIS BOOK?" Any and all of these will work, but I want something more for this book. Because let's face it, this book is crazy and intense and hot and every dirty fantasy that no woman will ever admit to having.
"When no means yes and yes means no, Chella, and you say no, then it's on."

I'm not even sure how to explain how I really feel about this book. I don't know how to write this review. How do I write a review about four individuals who all share a love of the darker side of sex? How do I describe the way they interact with one another? How do I explain that this is a love story? Because it is a love story. Despite appearances, despite the depravity, despite the dark.

It only works if we don't fall in love. He knew that going in. It only ends when she quits. And right now, she's still playing to win. The rules are the rules.

With rules to protect everyone, what happens when things start to break down? How long before the game is over? What happens when one of the men falls for the girl? Can love come from an arrangement such as this? Can the perfect partner be found in a quad?
"Did it ever occur to you that there's no such thing as the perfect man? Woman? Relationship? That it's an illusion? People go looking for it like it's a thing. It's not, Chella. Love is not a thing, it's a state of being. And it's so unrealistic to expect one person to be love."

As usual, my world was rocked. My ideas of love and relationships questioned. Does there have to be an underlying reason to want this kind of sex? Does there need to be something dark within to want multiple partners?
"When the four of us are all together, we have no rules."

Review: A Darker Shade of Magic

A Darker Shade of Magic A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this as part of a buddy read. It seemed like a good time. This has been sitting on my tbr for ages because I absolutely loved Vicious. I also have it on audio, which always makes the read a little more fun.

This is no exception.

Imagine London. Grey, rainy, and maybe even a bit dull--but only because it's grey.

Now, imagine another London layered on top of that London, that Grey London. We'll call this second layer of London Red London. We'll do this because it has a red hue about it. We'll do this because it's brighter and more magical than Grey London. We'll do this because they embrace their magic.

Are you still with me? Good. Imagine another London atop Red London. This is White London. White London is much different. White London is full of magic and cutthroats and backstabbing. White London is a survival of the fittest London.

Can we take it a step further and layer one more London? A Black London? A London who let the magic corrupt their very essence and tried to take over all the many layers of London? Imagine that Black London as an empty space full of dark magic just trying to escape.

It's all in A Darker Shade of Magic. It's all there and it is there for you to imagine. VE Schwab does a great job detailing the many layers of London, the magic needed to travel between these 4 worlds, the magic that is rare and unique and all of the things magic should be.

Delilah Bard is just a thief in Grey London. Her only goal is to be free. She's cunning and strong and she's a wanted man.

Kell is magical. He can travel between the Londons--and he's only one of two people who are capable of this.

What happens when these two meet? How is it possible that a simple girl from Grey London can help a magical man such as Kell?

I'm a believer of magic. I'm a believer of luck and fate and magical cities that are within our grasp if only the magic was available to everyone. We all have a little magic in us, right?

Follow Kell and Lila on their journey through Grey, Red, White, and Black London. See what no one else can see. Live like the others can't live. Protect yourself from dark magic.

Review: It's You

It's You It's You by Katy Regnery
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4 What is Bound Stars

I'm a fan. That's it. Jack Beauloup is a beautiful creature who loves deeply and remains loyal when he's being tested and pushed away and beaten down. Even when he is facing sure torture, he would do anything--well, almost anything--to save the one he loves, the life he's bound to.

Everything Jack has done for the past twenty years was for Darcy. How could she not see that? How can she push him away? Why would she want to cure the very essence of Jack? How could she want to erase the very part of him that binds the two together?

I enjoyed It's You more than this finale, but I think that's because the beginning of this book is a bit slow. Darcy and Jack aren't together, but they are forced to spend time with each other thanks to the threat of Lela. Jack is cold and indifferent towards Darcy while she tries to process her feelings about his nature. Jack is leaving the ball in Darcy's court. What will she choose? Will their binding survive?
"You are the strength of my life beating in my chest, and if you die, I die."

I mean, what's not to love here? With a proclamation such as that, I'd be a puddle on the floor. Isn't this the kind of love we're all searching for? The type of love that has you and your significant other willing to do anything--and I mean anything--to protect the other?

Darcy makes some difficult decisions and she makes me angry during this book, but eventually she fixes it. She makes me like her again and she becomes everything Jack needs. And everything he didn't think he could want.

I'd really love to see Katy Regnery take this paranormal further by giving us Willow and Amory. I mean, Willow isn't human so I'll go on record to say that I want more!
