Sweet Devil by Becker Gray ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

Sweet Devil by Becker Gray is now live!

People like to say the devil made them do it. And they would be right. I can bend anyone to my will. After all, I am the devil of Pembroke Prep. Only one person dares defy me. The one person I’ve ever wanted to be an angel for. But she despises me almost as much as I crave her. Serafina van Doren is the one temptation I can’t indulge, not with the secrets that I keep. But with the clock running out maybe it’s time to tempt her to the dark side.

The last book in the Pembroke Prep series belongs to the devil and his queen. Rhys and Serafina have had this whole I hate to love you thing going on since the beginning of the series. I was dying to know where the author was going to lead us. There was a ton of push and pull in this book and even more secrets. These two definitely walked the very thin line between love and hate and sometimes it seemed like the latter would win out. Will the devil of the hellfire club get his queen or is she untouchable? Get ready for a wild ride with the last book in the series.

“If anyone was a fallen angel, it was Rhys Hunington, the devil of Pembroke Prep.”

Serafina VanDoren is the Queen of Pembroke. It seems she has the weight of the world on her shoulders. Expectations from school and her parents coming at her non-stop. She just wants to make it through the school year and graduate without any complications. Unfortunately someone else has a bit of a different plan. For the last four years she hasn’t been able to get the devil of Pembroke out of her head and their relationship starts to change from hate to something more…much more.

“I see you. The real you. The girl who would be queen. The girl who cries herself to sleep at night.”

Rhys Hunington has always been the dark and mysterious one of the Hellfire club, many call him the devil of pembroke. To Serafina he was the bane of her existence but also the guy she felt this connection to. Rhys knew how he felt about Sera the first moment he saw her. He stayed hidden in the shadows and played a dangerous game until the rules changed.

“Because if loving her was the only gift I would allow myself, then god dammit, I was going to do it thoroughly. I was going to love every hidden corner of her. Even the corners she hid from herself.”

We see a whole different side of Rhys in this book…a much softer side. Once these two get done with their I hate to love you dance things start to change quickly. I really enjoyed the growth for both characters. Sera allowing herself to break out of the box she was constantly stuffed in her whole life. She finally saw that she was more than just a last name. Rhys is laying all his shit bare and allowing himself to finally love the girl. There were some parts of this story that I definitely didn’t see coming. Secrets revealed and a dark twisted turn. I really wanted to love this series but honestly struggled a bit through the whole thing. The ending of this particular book felt super rushed, but I did like the way it all wrapped up. I liked this series. I sadly didn’t love it as much as I wanted to.

“Some power in the universe had decided to give the devil his piece of heaven. My first. My last. My Serafina.”

Isabella starts off around eighteen years old and best friends with Tatiana. Isabella falls for Tatiana’s much older, older brother Vasili. He is one of the heads of the Russian Mafia. Isabella is sure that Vasili also has feeling for her. They end up hooking up and she’s convinced this was the best day of her life and totally reads the situation wrong. Especially when he turns around and tells her it was a mistake and treats her like dirt…never to be seen again.

Five years later, Isabella is back as a doctor. Vasili has evidently been keeping tabs on her and suddenly wants to be in a relationship with her. There is also a reason why he has kept tabs on her and wants to make sure she is safe. It has to do to a storyline involving her family.

I am not sure if it was his abruptness with how he left her or the way once she’s back and he’s all about her…but it turned me off. I felt there was the lack of chemistry. I know other people have talked about their hot scenes, but for me I found them missing something and maybe it was due to the fact I just didn’t like him. I didn’t feel the change in feelings had a smooth transition. Perhaps the author worked too hard to make him a tough mafia guy and for me, he appeared to be an inconsistent jerk. I couldn’t connect with the hero so this story wasn’t for me. But with all of the positive reviews, it may the perfect one for you.

Hold Me Now by J.H. Croix ~ Release Blitz

HOLD ME NOW
J.H. Croix
Release Date: October 19

A brand new firefighter series from USA Today Bestselling Author J.H. Croix!

He’s my new roommate.
I can’t stand him, and he can’t stand me.

Russell Dane thinks he’s all that. Maybe’s he’s so hot he should come with a too-hot-to-handle sign, but he drives me crazy. Not the good kind of crazy either.

He thinks women shouldn’t be firefighters, he’s obnoxiously overprotective, and I can’t stand him. Unfortunately, my body is not getting the memo, but I’m stronger than a few confused hormones. Right?

It wouldn’t be so bad if we didn’t have to work together, and if he wasn’t my boss. It definitely wouldn’t be so bad if he hadn’t gone and kissed me.

Russel & Paisley’s story is perfect for readers who love small town romance, hotshot firefighters, sassy tomboy heroines, roommate romance, frenemies to lovers, hate to love, slow burn, emotional romance with a dash of angst, plenty of steam and swoon, and a broody, protective hero.

Russell is a firefighter in Alaska and lives in a house his mother owns. It’s two separate apartments that share a kitchen. Paisley is an Alaskan transplant firefighter who recently moved there. She doesn’t have luck finding much as far as living but does get referred to a place where she only has to share the kitchen with someone.

Paisley and Russell work together and for some reason, they do not get along. I still don’t understand the real reason they did not get along. Paisley finds out that Russell is her new roommate. While they don’t get along at work, they are attracted to each other and now have to live together. There is another storyline dealing with Paisley’s brother and to to be honest, I don’t know why it was included.

I couldn’t seem to connect with this story and skimmed more than once. I did not feel the spark between these two. Their sexy scenes were not steamy enough for my liking. It was just an ok romance for me.

Will I whisper those three little words she wants to hear? Or will I break her heart and mine?

Title: Three Little Words
Author: Madison Park
Genre: Young Adult
Release Date: October 13, 2021

BLURB

While my crew at West End Prep is comprised of the ridiculously attractive and wealthy, I stand apart as filthy freaking rich. 

My name is Preston Castillo, and I’m the leader of the West End Prep’s Elite. With senior year about to begin, my friends and I are looking forward to doing what we do best. 

Partying. 

Getting girls.  

Spending boatloads of cash. 

I get what I want when I want it. No questions asked. Sure, I’ve been known to be cold. Heartless. Cruel. But lately, Aubrey has managed to break through my icy facade. She’s one of the few girls in my inner circle, and has been one of my closest friends since we were playdoh partners in crime in daycare. 

Over the summer, we had a great time jet-setting off to Paris. But it was there I realized she wants to be more than friends. Knowing what’s at risk, I’m not ready to make a decision like this. But when fate steps in to deliver a cruel surprise, I’m left fearing there won’t be enough time to show her how much she truly means to me. 

Will I whisper those three little words she wants to hear? Or will I break her heart and mine?

For me, this book was all over the place and I had a hard time following all of the storylines. Preston is one of a group of very rich, spoiled kids that go to an elite school. All of the kids in the group have more then one issue stemming from divorced or cheating parents. Pres is the dirty dog of the group and treats girls like dirt…plain and simple. He is crude and rude and I’m not sure how his friends put up with them.

Aubrey is head over heels in love with Preston and those feelings were confirmed on a Paris group trip. Evidently they grew very close and spent a ton of time together. I got a little lost here. Aubrey only referred to fragments from this trip and thought he had feelings for her. Clearly he didn’t…or just didn’t know it then?

After summer, they are back in school getting along but sometimes they get so mean and nasty with each other I had to look back a few pages to see if I missed something. It was hard for me to follow and not clearly written. There were way too many moving parts with all of the friends’ and families’ issues in this book. I didn’t know where to look first. Too many things were popping up with other characters that it distracted me from Preston and Aubrey. This group is highly dysfunctional and I’m not sure why some are even friends…very odd dynamics.

I wanted to love this book…I really did. Perhaps if the author had kept most of the focus on Aubrey and Preston and gave us more background, maybe I would have liked it more. I felt like there was just too much going on with everyone. I think these other storylines needed their own books rather than too many details in this story.

EXCERPT

I survived the first week of school. I hitched a ride with Lawrence and Victoria every day. Mark headed to school by himself every morning and avoided me like the plague at home and in school. I still don’t know what’s really eating at him, but my twin superpowers tell me that he’s pissed off at my dad more than he misses him. I hear footsteps pass by my bedroom door and shout.

“Hey.”

“No,” Mark responds.

“Please?” I plead.

The doorknob turns and Mark is standing in the doorway with his shoulder resting against the doorframe.

“What?” he growls.

“I’m sorry.”

He crosses his arms against his chest, purses his lips and raises an eyebrow at me.

“Apology accepted.” He says giving me a wink. “I’m heading out. We’ll talk later, okay?”

I nod. He turns and walks out of the bedroom toward his room. My cell phone rings, and I grab it then lay on my bed.

“Hello.” I greet, placing the call on speakerphone.

“Hey, Bree, are you meeting us for brunch?” Addie asks.

“Oh, hey, Addie, yes. Where are we meeting?”

“Victoria said we’re meeting at The Blueridge Grill.”

“Got it. What time?”

“Eleven.”

“I only have an hour to get ready.”

“Tiffany insists that you dress to impress. There are always some cuties hanging out there.”

I huff and shake my head. Addie is talking about married men with wives and their children. Addie, real name Addison, is my dazzling redheaded bestie, with sky blue eyes that light up the night sky. She’s never dated a guy in our high school and only lusts after married men. She’s an old soul and loves eighties music. She refuses to let me give myself to just any guy at West End Prep. Yes. I’m a virgin. Our conversations over the phone at night are about setting up a website to sell my virginity to the highest bidder. She’s definitely not all together, but she’s a really smart businessperson. She has men lined up for me. I’m not thrilled about her moral convictions, but she wouldn’t hurt a fly.

“It’s brunch, Addie and, um, that’s your territory. Addie?”

“Yeah?”

“Can we talk for a minute, you know, like on a serious note?”

“Sure. What’s wrong?”

“You know I’m here for you if you ever need me, right? I mean, I get really nervous when you talk about all these men you’ve been with. I’m scared for you. I worry.”

“You don’t have to worry. If my mother doesn’t worry, why should you?”

“That’s just it, Addie, your mother’s not doing her job. I want to be there for you, but I just don’t know how. I’m really afraid someone’s wife is going to hurt you.”

“I’ve had to fight off my mother’s boyfriends for years. Don’t worry so much, okay?”

“No, it’s not okay. I don’t want you to get hurt. Promise me you’ll stop dating older men and at least try to date some guys your own age.”

“Where is this coming from? Are you jealous?”

“Addie, don’t,” I clip. “Don’t do that. We’re friends and I love you.”

“Well, then I’m lucky someone loves me. Just look cute, okay? Try it. You might like it,” she insists.

Her voice cracks and my heart breaks. I change the subject to avoid hurting her feelings any more than I probably already have.

“Me? I always look impeccably cute, but you, I’m worried about you, you know that, right?”

Addie chuckles nervously.

“Yes, I know, but I’m smart, Bree. No-strings attached, gifts and money and I don’t have to give my heart to anyone. Can’t beat that.”

“You have your own money. You don’t need anything from those married men.”

“I need peace of mind. I don’t get it at home, Bree. I’m ignored by my mother and chased by her boyfriends.” There is silence on the other end of the phone. I can hear her exhale and that’s my cue to stop talking. “Are you coming or not?”

“I’ll be there.” I end the call and throw my cell phone on the bed.

Now…to find something to wear is another story. I rummage through my closet, placing my fingers along each velvet hanger trying to find something to wear. I place my finger on a short, red maxi dress. Grabbing it, I place it on the hook on the back of my bedroom door. I smile for a moment and remember the red bathing suit I wore at the beach in Paris.

My toes were nestled in the warm sand as tiny pebbles slid in between them. Pres was in the water with the guys horsing around, making a fool out of himself. He jumped on Lawrence’s back, then lifted his hand in the air and waved at me. I give him a half smile and he jumped off Lawrence’s back and ran toward me.

“Hey, are you okay?” he asks.

“Yeah. Are you having fun?”

His lips curved into a warm smile, then he scanned my body with his eyes.

“What are you doing?” I asked incredulously.

“I like red. It’s my favorite color, especially when it’s wrapped around your body.”

“Oh really?” I said flirtatiously. He leaned in, then grabbed me by the waist, lifted me up into his arms and ran toward the water. “Pres, no!” I screamed wrapping my legs around his waist. “Please…” I begged. He stopped right at the edge of the water.

“If I let you go, will you get in the water with me?”

My eyes grew wide. He placed me down and glanced up at me. He knew I was about to run like hell. My instincts kicked in and I turned and ran away. He chased after me and I laughed until he grabbed me by the waist again, lifted me and tossed me into the water with him. We laughed like we did when we used to play hide and seek in Central Park West.

My pulse races just thinking about him. I sit on the edge of my bed for a moment remembering our time together. Now, it’s back to basics, just friends, part of the crew, even though, it’s not what I want. He has an agenda this year and I’m not part of it. He didn’t even message me once when we got back from Paris. I was just Bree to him again and I guess that’s all I’ll ever be.

Older Brother’s Best Friend Romance
Release Date: September 23, 2021

BLURB

SAMSON
She’s always been off-limits. Forbidden. Way too young for the likes of me.

And yet, she still managed to carve out a space for herself in my heart.

But when push came to shove, I made the only choice I could, and I did it even knowing it would break her heart.

I’m back now, and ready to make her mine. Only, she’s not the sweet girl I left behind. She’s wild, reckless, and sexy-as-hell…a challenge I’m all too eager to meet.

STELLA
He was only ever meant to be a crush. After all, what girl isn’t into her older brother’s best friend?

But somehow, our innocent flirting quickly gave way to so much more. He swore he felt the same way about me… he promised we’d tell my brother together the day I turned eighteen.

Except the night before my birthday, he did the unthinkable, and now I’m not sure I know how to forgive him.

All I know is, I refuse to be anyone’s dirty little secret.

I was excited for this book considering the storyline included a little sister with a crush on her older brother’s best friend. However, it didn’t connect for me. I LOVE when a little sibling falls for older sibiling’s bestie but for me, the age difference was a little too far apart. I see other reviewers talking about the forbidden “chemistry” these two had, but I felt it was a bit creepy. Stella has a major crush on Samson since she was eight years old. Samson had some sort of attraction to her because he always included her in what he and her older brother were doing.

There are a few close calls as they are growing up and it seemed icky to me. Not hot at all and in no way a sexual attraction to a child. Once she is about to hit eighteen, they make a pact that they will make their relationship public. Only Samson chickens out and disappears. Later he reappears from whatever “job” he was on and is now ready to make her his after nine months. Or is he?

This huge gap in ages and the way he described how hot he was for her so young left me feeling a bit squeamish more than once. I really found myself cringing. If you love taboo reads, maybe this would be that taboo story you fall in love with. It just hit too many of my triggers.
