Blurb

He was the reprobate king of Dayton high. I was the bitter princess cast out of my kingdom. And we were at war.

It started off with a lie, and a one-night stand gone terribly wrong. Although I knew nothing good would come from my encounter with Bellamy West, the small town’s gorgeous bad boy, I didn’t expect him to throw jet fuel onto the already flaming wreckage of my life. Then step back with a sexy smirk on his face to watch me burn.

And burn I did…

He got me fired.

I got him arrested.

We were enemies until we weren’t. Until one touch went too far, and I found myself craving each dirty word. Every filthy promise.

Bellamy West was no good, and I wanted to be bad.

Screw falling for Prince Charming, I wrote my love story with the villain.

And for that, I paid…

This is the second book in the Dayton High series but can be read as a stand-alone. This one started out smoking hot and heavy with two sexy strangers looking for a night of fun in the back of a van. Perfect start to a book if you ask me. It definitely had my attention right away. What was supposed to be a walk on the wide side turned into a little more than these characters expected.

“It wasn’t just an orgasm: it was an awakening.”

Drew got kicked out of boarding school for something she swears she didn’t do but her Dad is livid. He decides to ship her off to Dayton High and she’s not too happy. From boarding school to a prep school for prison…what else could possibly go wrong? How about running into Mr. Hottie/One Night Stand on her very first day of her own personal hell? Oops.

“I had every intention of taking that invisible, privileged, princess crown and tarnishing every last gem and fuck it if that wasn’t bad news for her.”

Bellamy is the bad boy of Dayton High. The one all the girls are either scared of and secretly want or have already had and he’s tossed them away. He is trouble with a capital T and his eyes are set on the hot new girl who just so happens to be the same girl that lied to him the other night. Drama, crazy chemistry and a sexy as sin bad boy…this school year’s about to get a whole lot more interesting.

“He held my hand, kissed me..I could still feel the heat of his lips branded on mine.”

There was a ton of drama in this book but maybe a tad too much. It was sort of a mess. I loved the push and pull between Bellamy and Drew but didn’t really feel a connection. It also really, really bothered me that Bellamy was constantly calling Drew “Baby Girl.” I get nick names and all but I felt like it was overused. It was cute to start off with and then it began to annoy me. I couldn’t get past it. It was a good read but not my favorite bully romance.

Genre/Trope: Dark bully high school romance

BLURB

She wants to forget him. He won’t let her go.

Remi Tanner was only supposed to be a pawn in my game. But I screwed up. I broke her. And now I have to find a way to fix it.

I want her.
I need her.
In the end, I’ll prove she’s the only thing that matters.

Ace Jagger wasn’t supposed to imprint himself on my heart. But he did, before he tore it from my chest and hurt me in the worst possible way.

He’s possessive.
Dangerous.
In the end, I’m not sure I can resist.

He might be the bad boy with no conscience, and I might the girl with nothing left to lose, but one thing’s for sure… He won’t stop until gets what he wants.

Me.

Tame Him is the second book in the Rebels at Sterling Prep series. It is a dark high school bully romance. If possessive, tattooed, motorcycle-riding alphaholes aren’t your thing, you probably won’t like this book!

This book picks up right where that huge cliffhanger left us in the last book…wondering if Remi will be okay and who the hell played that damn video?! I desperately wanted it to not be Ace. I had my suspicions on who else it could be but like Remi, I wondered if Ace’s need for revenge overshadowed his feelings for Remi. Thankfully Remi is okay after the chaos of her birthday party. She’s super cautious where Ace is concerned. She doesn’t know if she can trust him again after all the shit he put her through.

“Ace isn’t the hero here. He’s the villain. And everyone knows the villain never saves the day.”

Ace knows he screwed up and is determined to get back on Remi’s good side. He will do anything he can to win her back. We get to see a much softer and more vulnerable side of Ace in this book and that was definitely one of my favorite parts. Is he perfect? Nah, he is still an asshole at times but I liked how he willingly put himself out there for the girl he loved. He laid it all on the line even the parts of him he wanted to hide. Every time Remi tried pushing him away, he was there pulling her back in.

“No more hiding. No more regret. No more shame. Our past shapes us, but it doesn’t define us.”

So much happened in this book. There were a ton of twists and turns. As much as the super crazy twist towards the end threw me for a loop, there was just a little too much stuffed in this book for me. I loved the first book so much and had high hopes for this one but honestly parts were super confusing. I loved how much Ace grew as a person. I loved the twins and may have a mild obsession with Cole but to me…Remi was all over the place. I felt like all this horrible stuff happened to her. It went too fast from “I want to hide and be left alone” to “come on over, Ace and hop in bed”. There was no middle ground. I loved parts of the book and other parts not at all. I am, however, really, really looking forward to Cole’s story as he definitely became a favorite of mine in this book.

Baller is a second-chance love story but I’m not sure if I’d categorize it as that. Liam and Vanessa have known each other since they were young. There has always been a pull to each other. He is a ballplayer and on his way to MLB. The story moves kinda quickly. Vanessa is at her prom and finds her boyfriend cheating so she leaves. Liam finds her and after hearing what happens, takes her out for the perfect night. They start dating and go to Vegas at the age of twenty-one to get married. I am not a fan of insta love but I kept reading.

There is a HUGE and I mean HUGE miscommunication about a situation and Vanessa does not give Liam the change to explain. Liam does not go after Vanessa and they end up divorced. The whole situation was rather unbelievable and I was frustrated that these two had such a lack of communication. Their marriage ended over something that could have been easily explained and fixed.

That brings us to years later and after picking up and moving away, Vanessa is back and engaged. It’s basically Liam chasing her trying to win her back and gain her forgiveness. Will he get a chance to explain his side of the story and win her back? I found myself yelling at her to just stop it already! It was super frustrating to read. So much angst! I was disappointed in how this misunderstanding dragged on for years. It was draining. But some people love the drama and perhaps they’ll love this story.

DARE TO TEMPT
By Carly Phillips
Release Date: August 4

He’s a smooth talking jock in trouble  
She’s the solution to his problems.  
Love is the last thing they expected to find. 

Damon Prescott had it all. Star quarterback. Money. Fame. Now? He’s being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs and banned from the sport and team he loves.

Determined to prove he’s innocent, he hires tough as nails private investigator, Evie Wolfe. She’s able to bring a man to his knees with a glare, yet sensual in ways that take him off guard – and she’s everything Damon didn’t know he needed.

Evie’s used to men dismissing her, especially playboys like Damon Prescott so she’s not buying the sexual lines he’s trying to sell. She’s with him to do a job, nothing more. But you know what they say about the best laid plans? Sometimes you end up between the sheets with an arrogant football player anyway.

But when the case is over, can Damon convince Evie she’s the only woman for him or will she leave him tied up in love?

For me, this wasn’t my most favorite book sadly. Damon is a pro quarterback that has just been accused of taking performance enhancing drugs which he vehemently denies. All of those that are close to him believe him, but he has to have proof that he didn’t willingly take them. His sister hires her friend Evie who is somewhat of a PI to find out who could have given him the drugs. Evie is hard as steel and has no interest in Damon other then helping prove his innocence.

An idea is presented that Damon and Evie should pretend to be a couple so she can get close to his inner circle to see if she can find any clues. As you can guess, since they pretend to be a couple real feelings start to develop. It was an ok read for me. I didn’t feel much of a connection between these two and the second half of the book was pretty predictable. I would read more in this series but this just wasn’t my favorite one.

This book was not what I had originally thought. Maybe I needed to read the first book in this series but to be honest even if I had more background, it wouldn’t have made me love the dynamics between a few of these characters.

Salome is in love with her brother’s best friend Chris. For years. Chris is also in love with her but there is so much more to this simple “best friend’s little sister”. Chris is bisexual and had a fling with Salome’s brother years ago. Salome may or may not be bisexual. Chris hooks up with Salome’s best friend Jordan who is gay and so on. It was hard to follow at times. Also the whole friend/brother swapping wasn’t really for me. Not to mention Salome’s family treats her like crap and she never stands up for herself.

I felt no connection between her and Chris even though they have had feeling for each other for so long. It just was not a smooth read for me. I didn’t like some of the characters and how they treated each other. Maybe I was missing something but sadly this book wasn’t for me. It might be for you.
