Title: Marked
Series: Playing Games #1
Author: Rebecca Barber
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: March 19, 2020



Sure the million-dollar pretty boy can play football. At least that’s what the papers lead us to believe. Me though, I’m not so convinced.

Sure he’s got a backside you could bounce quarters off, arms you want wrapped around you, dimples you’d drown in and hair you’d sell your mother to pull… but is he a nice guy or has he let fame go to his head?

I wasn’t one of his adoring fans, throwing my granny panties at his feet… that was until I met him and he completely screwed me…

I have never read Rebecca Barber so I thought I’d give Marked a try since I like to read authors that I’ve never read. For some reason, I did have a hard time immersing myself into the story. Tasha and Logan didn’t seem to mesh well for me. Logan is your typical bad boy in football. Tasha is a feisty heroine and didn’t take anything from Logan without dishing it back. I liked the book ok but it just took me a while to get into the characters and where the story was going. If you like sports romance, you may find yourself falling in love with Logan and Tasha. You definitely will learn a lot about Australian football.

“So, you’re really not coming out with me?” “Not tonight.” “What are you gonna do instead? Sit in your room and hang out with Mrs Palmer?” “Who?” “You know…Mrs Palmer and her five daughters?” Bryce was looking at me like I should know exactly what he was carrying on about. The truth was, I had no fucking idea. He’d completely lost the plot. “Spank the monkey? Flog your log?” Ah, now I knew where he was going with this. Arsehole. “Choke the chicken? Jerkin’ your gherkin?” Holding up my hand, I begged. “Please! Enough. Please stop.” “So touchy. Maybe you should try giving the old slug a tug. You never know, it might relax you. You know, take the edge off. Relieve some of that pent-up stress.”

Brix - Cover


Brix Ward is a Grade A prick.

He’s arrogant, spoiled, and self-centered. As the lead singer of A Rebels Havoc, he’s used to women falling over themselves for a chance to tame the wild bad boy.

Except for me.

I still remember the boy I grew up with. The one who went out of his way to make my life a living hell. I did my best to avoid him at all costs.

Imagine my surprise when our parents announced they had eloped, then left me to live with my new stepbrother. Alone.

Now, no matter what I do, there’s no escaping him. He’s always there, tempting me, provoking me. Every moment of every day. The more we’re around each other, the more the heat between us begins to rise.

If he thinks he can hurt me again, he’s dead wrong.

I won’t let him be the one to destroy me, even if it breaks my heart.

Enemies to lovers, a sexy rock star and a forbidden stepbrother romance to top to it off. We get the promise of that and so much more in the first book in A Rebel’s Havoc series by Brooke O’Brien.

“There’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s about to be set on fire.”

Ivy needs money for school so to save up she heads to a place she’d rather not for the summer…home. While she is excited to see her Mom and her bestie, she’s not all that excited to be back in the town she grew up in. A girl’s got to do what a girl’s got to do, right? And that’s how unfortunately within the first few hours of being home she runs into the one person she dreaded seeing most. The bane of her very existence…Brix Ward.

“To say I hated Brix Ward would be a mild understatement. If he were to go up in flames standing in front of me, I wouldn’t bother to offer him the glass of water in my hand.”

Brix doesn’t recognize Ivy at first but she knows right off the bat that the super sexy lead singer of A Rebel’s Havoc is still the same entitled jackass he’s always been. He thinks he can have any girl he wants bent over and ready with one of his signature sexy smiles but Ivy refuses to be another notch on his bed post. What happens when they discover they will be living under the same roof and with Ivy’s new job be seeing a lot more of each other? Their “I love to hate you but really want you” relationship starts to get a little intense and a whole lot of steamy. Is it possible for bad boy Brix to really change his ways for Ivy or will the secret he is keeping from her ruin their chance at love?

“I’ll never let him see me broken. He doesn’t deserve to know he got through to me.”

I loved the whole idea of this book. I am a sucker for an enemies to lover read and the fact that we also got a sexy rock star and a stepbrother romance all tied up in a pretty package pulled me right in. That cover…yes, please. I liked most of this book but sadly I just didn’t love it. I think it’s that I need a little more of the enemy part in my books. Ivy was a good character but she gave in to Brix so easily and he shed his bad boy persona just as quickly. I felt it was missing a lot of that much needed build up that I have come to love in these types of stories. The whole push and pull of the enemies to lovers. It just escalated too quickly for me so I felt disconnected from the characters and the story. I did however love some of the secondary characters and hope Ivy’s BFF gets her own book next. I am looking forward to seeing how this series plays out so I will definitely be reading more.

“I think you were meant to come into my life.”

Sadie is the boss’s daughter and the manager of a huge band. A band filled with a bunch of hot alpha males. But Sadie is seriously drawn the Felix. He is a hot, blunt and sexy beast of a guy and she can’t keep her eyes off of him. Felix is the love ’em and leave ’em type with a painfully crude, filthy mouth. When he finds out a secret that Sadie is hiding, he hatches a plan.

Now no one said it was a smart plan but nonetheless it’s a plan. He’s going to blackmail her for her body until the band goes on tour. He is so crude and rude when he approaches her that it’s actually HOT! There is no way in hell her secret can come out and she decides to go along with Felix’s diabolical plan of letting him have her. Deep down she knows this is exactly what she has been dreaming about anyway, isn’t it? That’s another piece to her secret.

Naturally the hot sex they start to have stirs feeling in both of them that they prayed wouldn’t happen and they fight them hard. It was a great storyline but there were a lot of the pages wasted that would have been better spent adding more to the story. It was a hot but short book.

Love Defies Us Teaser 3


“Where is my goddamn diary?” I screech. I place my hands on my hips and tap my foot, trying to keep from putting it in his ass.

He stands up from the desk and tucks his phone back in his shorts, leans down with his hands in his pockets and whispers in my ear. “I put it somewhere safe, Sadie.” His confidence wraps around me. My name sounds rich and warm on his perfect lips, like eating warm fudge on a cold night.

“Give me my shit back! You lied and said you haven’t seen it. Asshole!”

He grabs my half-bottle of grapefruit juice from my desk and guzzles it down, then tosses the bottle in the waste bin. “I never told you that.” He pauses for a few beats. “How would you feel if I wrote those things about you? And you found out about it?”

I don’t respond. Guilt washes over me like a tidal wave. I shouldn’t feel guilty about what I wrote, those words weren’t meant for anyone to see.

“I asked you a question, and I expect an answer,” he demands, and his words cause my chest to clench. I never like taking orders from anyone, but the way he says those words massages my ears.

“I’m your boss, remember?” My words come out shaky and small.

“Technically, but your dad writes our checks, not you, Thumbelina.”

“Embarrassed.” I finally answer his question.

Just shoot me now and put me out my misery.

“I jacked off in the shower a few times thinking about what you wrote about me.” He steps closer to me, and I step back, leaning against my desk. He yanks my ponytail gently, exposing my neck, and his eyes stay clinging on my mouth. I swallow thickly and hard, and I feel my pulse throbbing in my neck. His soft and supple lips trail down my neck like soft flower petals massaging my skin. My sex becomes wet and needy. So needy.

“I want your lips bruised and red from you sucking my dick. I want your pussy swollen.  I want to fill your virgin mouth, pussy, and ass with my cum.” His warm breath tickles my cheek, and the hair on my skin stands at attention. “I’m starving for your pussy. You wouldn’t deny a starving man, now would you?”

Then he studies my reaction; my breath hitches. I’ve never had a man to talk dirty to me and his mouth is dirtier than Flint water.

“I guess you’ll have to starve.” I shrug. “When aliens land on our planet, then I might consider.” My voice is constricted with nervous.

Adam Hudson was the Captain of the school football team and the boy that every girl in the school wanted. He was also the one they feared, but now Sarah Danes was in his sights. Now she was the girl he wanted to break – before she broke him.

“Grief had swallowed them both whole and then spat them out as broken pieces of heartache, misery and pain.”

Sarah Danes has had an unimaginable year filled with tragedy and betrayal and things only get worse when she and her Mom are basically forced to move. She has to start at a new school midway through her senior year and it was definitely not how she pictured her last year in high school. Yet here she is in a new town with a new plan. Keep her head down and avoid everyone who is anyone. Unfortunately for her she catches the eye of Adam the king of all assholes and his loyal trio of idiotic lackeys. They rule the school and plan on breaking the new girl and making her understand her place at the bottom of their crazy chain of followers. Thing is Adam wants Sarah in his arms just as much as he wants to see her groveling at his feet.

“I knew I was going to hate her, and I knew I was going to want her more than anything I’d ever wanted before.”

Sarah quickly learns that surviving Madison High is not for the faint of heart but after the hell she’s been through over the past year, she’s up for the challenge. She’s not going to let Adam Hudson, captain of the football team who rules the halls with fear and intimidation, shake her resolve. No matter how hot he just so happens to be or the fact that she just can’t seem to stay away from him.

“I should have wanted to stay away from him, but I was a moth to a light bulb. I knew it was going to burn like hell, but I couldn’t stop myself from wanting it, because the pain and suffering were deserved.”

I love bully romances and Adam and Sarah’s story was more or less your typical bully romance…a whole lot of hate and a whole lot of want. He was horrible to her and everyone at the school but we start to learn that he hasn’t really had an easy time either. They both have secrets they want to hide and pasts they don’t want anyone to know about. As much as they try to stay away from each other, they are thrown together on one horrible night that changes everything. While they struggle with the aftermath of that night and the secrets of their pasts they try to figure out how to handle their feelings toward each other. Adam wants things to be different and Sarah doesn’t want to be just another girl on her knees for him. With all they’ve been through do these two even stand a chance?

“All the hatred I used to push me through each day, the blackness that helped to focus my brain, faded away when she was around. It came like waves. High and dangerous until they hit the shore then ebbed away slowly. Sarah Danes was my shoreline.”

While I enjoyed this book I had a hard time connecting with Adam and Sarah. I thought they’d grow on me but sadly neither did. I love bully books and this one did have a lot of the elements I have grown to love and expect from your typical one but it just fell short in some areas. I loved to hate some of the secondary characters and the second half of the book worked a lot better for me. It wasn’t a bad read by any means…it just wasn’t up there with some other bully books I have read. I think it’s that I had a hard time with both main characters but the author did go and hit us with that crazy ass cliffhanger that I totally did not see coming. I really thought it would be wrapping up all pretty with a bow and all the sudden the author was like nah, we aren’t going out like that and decided to shock the hell out of us. I’m not always a fan of cliffhangers but this one has me needing the next book now!! So while I wasn’t a huge fan of this one I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book.

The Lying Season by K.A. Linde ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

TLS available now FB banner


K.A. Linde
Release Date: February 4

A new second chance standalone office romance from USA Today bestselling author K.A. Linde…

Walking away from Sam Rutherford was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

It’s been five years since that day, and I’ve given up on looking for love. My focus is on my career. And it’s paid off—I’m successfully managing the reelection for the mayor of New York City.

Then Sam walks into my office as the new legal counsel. Which means I have to see him every single day from now until November. We vow to remain professional, but it’s a small office. The sly glances and his blistering charm are unavoidable.

It all feels so familiar. Too comfortable. After what happened the first time…I should know better.

If I’m not careful, he’ll break my heart all over again.

And I don’t know if I can survive Sam a second time.

I’m torn on this one because I really liked the storyline but my first issue is I feel like there is way too much missing. I thought this was a standalone, but there was so many references to the past it was hard to follow at times. There were also too many characters if that is possible. I was actually putting down my kindle and taking a break because I was exerting too much energy figuring out who was who multiple times.

Lark works for the Mayor and is heavily involved in the political world. There was a lot about politics which I didn’t like and so many references to her being from the “upper east side” and her upper east side crew. Again I felt like there was huge chunks missing. An ex of hers, Sam, shows up at her job and she is devastated to see him. He is shocked to see her as well. It’s clear that something huge happened between these two and they try to steer clear of each other but you can tell they are still attracted to each other. The characters were moody and indecisive as well which left me questioning what the hell was going on.

I wanted to like this story so much! For me it was too political. Too much stereotyping of “upper east side” people that I still don’t get. I thought this story was a standalone, but as a reader I spent half the time trying to make a flow chart of who the characters are, trying to figure out what the backstory is and how it relates to THIS story. It was super frustrating. Clearly read all the books that come before this one that involve these characters. If you have ever been in a group of people where they are all talking about private/inside jokes and you felt clueless…that is how I felt reading this book.

It’s been seven years since Quinn Walker ended our engagement.

I’ve moved on, married his enemy, and started my own family.

Everything was perfect…until it wasn’t. My new life was a lie, and my husband turned out to be a fraud. The man that I married was now a wanted fugitive, and my ex-fiancé was the cop who was intent on making him pay.

He’s convinced that a simple apology and a dimpled smile is enough to fix that broken heart that he tore apart years ago.

I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him at a distance. Yet, all it takes is one kiss, one touch for me to remember how great our love was before he threw it away.

Little does he know that I’m not the young, foolish girl who he left behind. If he thinks he can waltz back into my life like the past never happened, he has another thing coming.

I can accept that fate sent him back to me. Now, I need to assure my foolish heart that this means nothing.

When I found this book and read the blurb I was like, oh this sounds really good! But I couldn’t like either of the main characters. Quinn and Charlotte were engaged year ago when Quinn up and dumps her to further his career. A friend Grant, swoops in and steals Charlotte, knocks her up and they get married. Fast forward 7 years and it turns out Grant is a piece of sh@t. He ends up in trouble, betrays Charlotte and now he’s on the run. Quinn and Charlotte are thrown back together while trying to find Grant.

Naturally, old feelings come up and Quinn would like to have another shot with Charlotte. This book was just ok for me. Charlotte’s on the wishy washy side and Quinn is a dick a good portion of the book. I didn’t feel chemistry between them and I found myself skimming a lot of the pages just to see if they end up catching Grant.

I wholeheartedly have to agree with some of the other reviews I have read about this book. I was intrigued by the storyline but something was missing. A spark between the main characters? More of an understanding of the background of them? More chemistry? I can’t put my finger on it but something was missing.

Pearl is a rich girl who grew up spoiled her whole life. Due to a tragedy, she is set to take over the family company until her hotter then hell stepbrother shows up to claim – or should I say “try to claim” what is rightfully his. He evidently has been MIA for a long time and there are hints here and there of why he left and where he was. You never get a clear cut picture of it all.

What is clear is that there was definitely more then a stepsister/brother relationship between these two and something went horribly wrong and now they hate each other. Or do they? The basis of the story has soooo much potential but was just jumbled too much and did not flow well for me. By the end it got a little better but not much. I do want to follow this series but I’m hoping future books are not only a little longer but are more detailed and flow much better. Also, I need to feel more chemistry between these two. I definitely felt it was missing in this story. This story was a great idea but something didn’t connect for me.
