War of Hearts by Nina Levine Cover


I tried not to look at her.
I tried not to want her.
I tried not to love her.
But she won this war of hearts and now I’m a man on my knees.
This love may kill me.
My president will see to that.
No one touches his daughter.
He’s removed me from her life.
He’s sent me to hell where every day is a bloodbath.
If he thinks he’s won, he’s wrong.
Every battle is won before it’s fought and she won this battle a long time ago.
I surrendered in our war of hearts and now I’ll fight to the death for my queen.

It’s just completely perfect. I loved every word. Nina and her awesome storytelling ways take the cake again!

Welcome to their kingdom…

I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again.
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.

And forced to face Jace Covington.
My first friend. First crush. First kiss.
The one I left behind.

Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.

This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell.
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.

They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.

If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder.
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.

WARNING: Royal Hearts Academy is a New Adult/High School series of standalones filled with drama, a touch of angst, and boys who are bad to the bone.

This series is recommended for mature readers due to graphic language and sexual content.

Whoa! I love a good bully romance and this story didn’t let me down one single bit. Jace and his family have suffered a tragedy and understandably they never want to go through anything like that again. They want revenge against people and to make them suffer. Dylan moves back with no knowledge of what truly happened to her former best friend’s family but is caught up in the payback. My emotions were pulled tight for all involved and I just knew something twisted had occurred for Jace to turn against Dylan. Crazy, messed up crapola reigns with the screwed up stuff Jace orchestrates and even more unexpected turns where I’m like…what!?!?! Dylan is one strong chick to survive everything thrown her way and I loved Sawyer and how she seemed to see straight into a person’s heart. Some of these characters rocked my world and this book is bully angst in its finest form. Highly recommended.

“Is that why you wore this sexy little shirt tonight?” His warm breath tickles the side of my neck. “Hoping to get my attention.”


That earns me a husky chuckle. “Too bad.” He presses his lips against my throat. “Because it’s working. You have all my attention.” He walks his fingers down my torso. “Question is…what are you going to do with it?”

Royal Hearts Academy graphic


Ashley Jade loves to tackle different genres and tropes within romance. Her first loves are New Adult Romance and Romantic Suspense, but she also writes everything in between including:  contemporary romance, erotica, and dark romance.

Her characters are flawed and complex, and chances are you will hate them before you fall head over heels in love with them.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, the edge of your seat, angst-filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles… prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters growing up.

My mom would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. Not all love stories are made from light- some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters, I love spending time with my family. I’m a mom and that comes first in my life, but when I do get down time, I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

The Truth About Us by R.C. Stephens is OUT NOW!

One-click today!!

TTAU Cover



Griffin Campbell was the typical bad boy. My father warned me not to get too close. But he’s handsome as hell with eyes the color of the ocean, and he’s fiercely loyal and loves unconditionally. I couldn’t stay away when he was the only boy to ever claim my heart. I gave him all my firsts . . . and he left me behind.

Ten years later, he’s returned home offering answers as to why he left because he wants me back—only I’m not the broken-hearted teenager he once fell for. His pretty eyes and killer muscles aren’t enough to mend the hurt that rages inside me.


Jolie Bryant was my best friend’s little sister. She’s sexy as hell, sweet as sin, and very forbidden—my favorite memory and my biggest regret.

I should stay away. I’m harboring secrets that will shatter her world.

The thing about secrets is that they always find a way to come out. I just hope that when mine do, she won’t turn away from me . . .

I want my second chance with the only girl I’ve ever loved, but it seems that fate has other plans.

Growing up Jolie was Griff’s best friend’s little sister so she was supposed to be off limits but the heart can’t help who it wants. These two fell in love between secret rendezvous and years spent getting to know each other. Even though they were teens, they had to keep their love hidden because Jolie’s brother and her judgmental and horrible Dad thought less of Griff. These two thought they’d be together forever but after one special night Griff was gone. He vanished from Jolie’s life without even saying goodbye and she was left heartbroken.

“He’s vanished from my life and I don’t understand why.”

Ten years later Jolie returns home and she’s definitely not the same girl Griffin left behind without an explanation. They say you never forget your first love and as much as he tried to move on, Griff can’t let go of Jolie. They are thrown together this time because of a family tragedy and Griff sees this as his chance to be with the only girl he has ever loved. He wants her back but she is still holding onto the pain of being abandoned ten years ago. Seeing each other brings up so many feeling she thought were buried and long forgotten. When Griff reveals the truth of why he left, will she be able to forgive him and give their love a second chance or are some things unforgivable?

“What happened to you Griffin Campbell? What made you run?”

I love a good second chance romance and this one had the whole I fell in love with my best friend’s sister too so I was definitely looking forward to reading it. It was a slow burn lead up for sure and it took me a while to get through some parts because honestly there was just a lot going on. I was having a little bit of a hard time connecting to the characters. There was a good amount of drama, angst and some twists I didn’t see coming thrown in there and it was a good read overall. I just think for me it would have been a better read had I had an easier time feeling the connection between Jolie and Griff. I do think a lot of people will love this book and I look forward to seeing more from this new to me author.

“It’s been a decade since I’ve seen her and still my heart beats for this woman. Why did I stay away so long?”

Stephanie (1)



 I throw my head back, laughing and happy that playful Jojo is back. “I remember the first time we kissed,” I say, looking into her eyes. She swallows. Her earlier playfulness falls away and is replaced with a serious, heated stare. “I remember the first time we danced.” My finger caresses the bare skin of her shoulder, and her green eyes go from shining emerald to a dark forest green.

“Griff,” she whispers a warning.

“I want to kiss you so bad.” My voice is gruff and filled with a need that far outweighs any craving for gelato. I don’t wait for her answer because the way she watches me has me undone.

My lips press to hers slowly, a soft caress, a begging for permission. Her fingers come up and rake through my hair, tugging me closer. My tongue peeks from my mouth, begging entrance to hers as she opens willingly.

The kiss is slow and testing at first. I’m scared of pushing too hard and having her pull away. She says she doesn’t want more, but the chemistry between us beats alive and strong. Her taste sets my body on fire as a million memories come crashing through my mind. Electricity sparks inside me, making me feel alive for the first time in what feels like forever. And now, with a simple kiss, I have come undone. My lonely heart beats in time with hers. My thumb brushes over the pulse point in her neck, and it thumps wild like mine.

“Jolie,” I say her name like a prayer.

“What are we doing?” she murmurs into my mouth.

“What feels right,” I answer into hers. Primal instinct begs me to take her on this kitchen counter and make her mine. My fingers pull at her scalp and she moans into my mouth, and my hard-on pulses to her sweet noises. The kiss intensifies until we are both breathless and panting when suddenly, she pulls away from me, pressing her hands to my shoulders.

by Casey Diam
Publication Date: August 1, 2019
Genres: Mature YA Sports Romance



Those were the root of all evil. One of those became the root of mine the day I lost the love of my life. My best friend. My lover.
Everyone disregarded it, saying, “Let’s face it, Averie, you have the rest of your life ahead of you.” They were wrong. James Lawrence was my ever after . . . until Ashton.
If only he didn’t come bearing his own brand of evil.
A secret.
The reason he wanted me to stay away.
I should have listened, and he should have tried harder, but both of us failed. And if we hadn’t, if he had told me when we first met, would it have altered the moment I realized that I was falling for him?
The slight variation in the air. The hitch in my breath. The lightness in my chest.
Impossible to know; I’d already fallen.
I was already ruined.

***A standalone sports romance that takes place in senior year high school. Due to explicit content, this book is suitable for 17+

Averie’s life as she knew it changed in an instant. One second she was watching her boyfriend doing what he loved…playing football and next a horrible tragedy struck. Now she is starting her senior year of high school in a new town, at a new school with all new people. Her Mom calls it a fresh start but to Averie who is drowning in sorrow and still feels so broken, nothing and no one can help. Not even the alcohol and drugs she turned to in order to numb the pain.

“In the next second…my life would change forever.”

Averie wasn’t exactly welcome with open arms at her new school, but she couldn’t care less what other people think of her. When the school’s star quarterback Ash strikes up a friendship with her, things get a little off track for Averie. She wants nothing to do with anything remotely football related but can’t help the feelings she starts to develop towards Ash or the attraction that’s so obviously there between the two even though they feel like she is betraying her past. But Ash has a secret. He knew who Averie was before she transferred to his school and she doesn’t realize it. He tries so hard to just be the friend she needs and help her heal but how is that possible when she is all he can think about and all he wants?

“The girl I’d had more wet dreams about than I could count was here. In my part of the city. In my school. In my world. When I couldn’t have her in it. She wasn’t ready for it. I wasn’t ready for it.”

There was a ton of angst in this book and my emotions were all over the place. There was also your typical teenage drama and some really fantastic secondary characters. My heart broke so many times for Averie as she tried to navigate her new reality and heal. There’s so much I can say about Ash because he was amazing. He truly cares about Averie. He sees her drowning and wants so desperately to be the light at the end of her tunnel. I’m not sure what I expected out of him when I first met him and if being near him would help her heal but he went and proved himself over and over again. But when Averie discovers Ash is hiding a secret will it destroy what they have or will it help them both find what they didn’t even realize they were looking for?

“I wanted her to fall in love with me, but her heart belonged to someone else. Maybe it always would.”

I always love finding a new author I haven’t read before and falling in love with their stories. This was such a great book that dealt with some tough subjects especially for high school kids but the author did such a great job with it all. I loved Ash and Averie so much and am so excited that some of the secondary characters from this story are getting their own books! I can’t wait to read more from this author.

“I never though I could fall like this again, but there I was. With this guy. This athlete. This man. In love.”

So I have read some of the other reviews for this book and I’m sitting here scratching my head. They are talking about the chemistry between the two characters and the love, soulmates etc, etc…I guess they missed the part that she is like 14 and he is 30?? He is not related by blood but is her uncle – she was adopted by his sister. I know that Charlie goes through a traumatic childhood and in a sense she is mature because of it but she is still a child and the author had me questioning what I was reading more then once. I kept forgetting she was a child. I kept forgetting that this was a grown man with a 13 or 14 year old with an unhealthy attachment. To be honest, their relationship was not my cup of tea. It creeped me out. Charlie is written to sound way too mature and Oliver while on his own seems like a good guy – his thinking is majorly skewed. I get that they are both broken and find comfort and solace in each other but come on…what could a grown man find attractive in a 13 year old?? I get this book was taboo but it just was not for me. It may be for you if you like forbidden relationships.

 “Show me how to play,” I say.

Her body leans back as her brows pinch with a dubious stare. “You want me to teach you how to play piano?”

I nod. “The song you played. I like it.”

She blinks, brushing her fingers through her hair. “It’s about learning to love people’s faults and pain for what they are. Beautiful.”

My head cocks. “Why is that?”

She wets her bottom lip. “I guess when you love someone, you don’t get to choose which parts. You’re getting every single piece of their being, scarred or not.”

Her eyes trail to her hand, scarred with white and pink marks. My fingers graze over each one, causing her to suck in a breath and freeze as I caress the marred flesh. They’re rougher than the rest of her hand, but part of her nonetheless.

Meeting her eyes, we stay like that for a few long moments. Neither of us says a thing or moves an inch. We just remain touching, staring, being there in one another’s company.

Then I pull away. “What are the keys I need to learn for the song?”

She exhales then shows me the basics.

It’s a silent admission between us.

Your scars are beautiful, Charlie.

GAHHHHH! Jax and Ronnie are epic. I am loving all these Cook siblings. This story is light and fun. Super addicting to read. The flow of the story is great and Harvey’s writing just keeps getting better and better. I adore her stories. Funny but not over the top outrageous. The comedy is relatable to real life and that just makes it better. Jax is a dream boat. I mean sexy professor that can swing a hammer…what’s not to love!? Ronnie is a ball of sass and man ol’ man does she have her stuff together. She’s fierce. LOVE HER!!! This book was great. If you’re looking for light, fun, flirty and a whole lot of steam its right here. Look no further!
