Mohammad says I’m back in the boys’ club.

Harry tells me that he wants me back in his life.

And Noah, well, he’s always been complicated.

But after a too-generous gift from Harry and a heated moment with Noah on my birthday, things seem to changeNoah is flirting with me again and Harry shows me he’s serious about us being friends when he asks me to be his date to his parents’ party.

Everything feels like it’s back to normal—until the party.

Because Mohammad somehow ends up with two dates.

Harry asks me to pretend to be his girlfriend for the night.

And Noah tells me he likes me. A lot.

In the midst of meeting Harry’s parents and helping Mohammad navigate a potential disaster with Naomi, Noah says that I need to show him how I feel. But what he’s really asking for is for me to make a choice.

If you love an angsty, coming of age YA story with fun characters mixed in with some complex issues and young love, this series will grab your attention. Soon you’ll be shouting Team Noah or Team Harry. Mallory is learning to navigate her feelings for two of her friends while not hurting anyone else or herself. Meanwhile Noah has stepped up his game and Harry has a ton going on as well. Thank goodness Mohammed is around to keep everyone grounded with his sound advice. WWMD? This book was entertaining, a little heartbreaking and exciting as well. A lot of advancement emotionally for the characters as well as myself…I got a little giddy too. Definitely ended on a smile and maybe a tiny bit of apprehension for the next book. I keep waiting for another shoe to drop.

Book two of the Royal House Series was everything I had hoped it would be and so much more. We waited a long time for this book and believe me this book did not disappoint one bit. Once again K.A. Linde pulls us into an amazing world full of magic, secrets, intrigue and best of all, dragons.

“There’s never been half-Fae society member. Let alone one who earned her spot below the age requirement, who hadn’t officially entered, who didn’t have a tribe, and who was part of the house of dragons.”

Kerrigan has just become the first half-Fae to ever win the dragon tournament and become a member of society. She’s now a dragon rider and for as many people who celebrate her victory, there are just as many who remind her that she doesn’t belong. Before the grueling training that is part of the last step before she officially gets her robes, she must travel to the House of Shadows with Fordham. A place Kerrigan has only heard about through whispers and legends and Fordham isn’t sure he will be welcomed back into with open arms.

“Then, as one, they crossed the border that led into the House of Shadows.”

Power, alliances, betrayals and secrets. Oh, how the secrets and mystery in this book were waiting around every corner. Not everyone and everything are as they seem. Could Kerrigan and Tieran make it through the program without a bond or will their secret be revealed? Who is the master behind the red masks and how and why was the House of Shadows kept in solitude for so long?

So much happens in this book and it kept getting better and better. One of my favorite things was the character growth for Fordham. The dark prince was everything. He proved again and again that he would walk the path to truth and justice alongside Kerrigan. I couldn’t have possibly loved him anymore. Their relationship was a slow burn. I wanted so much for Ford to let go of his thoughts of curses and take what he so badly wanted. Kerrigan was once again her kick ass, authentic self and I loved it. If there was one thing I hated about this book, it was March…always March. His need for power and his quest for a crown were all done with the pure evil in his heart. There were so many twists and turns in this book and when I thought I had things figured out, I didn’t. And then that ending? Ah, I have no idea how I will survive waiting a year for the next book.

“I want to be there to see you change the world. Because I already know that you will.”

K.A. Linde is a genius and the world she so intricately weaves together inside the pages of these books is pure magic. Amazing characters and a truly brilliant and unique story. If you are a fan of fantasy, magic and dragons, this series is a must read! One of my favorite ever and I can’t wait for more!

So, I watched.
I studied.
I toyed with her and I played my games.

Trouble is, she thinks it’s all a game, but I’ll never give up. I see something in her that makes me crave more.
What does she see in me?
Cruelty
Savagery
A street soldier with a thirst for Vengeance.
I was a virus and she was immune.
Or was she?

Where I come from, they call me The Psycho.
And I’m about to show the world exactly why.

The Psycho was a fun, dark stalker romance that I really enjoyed. Adam is part of a gang of vigilantes and I could appreciate their brand of deviancy and protection of the rundown neighborhood they grew up in. For me, there was a redeemable piece in of each of the guys. Olivia is a beautiful, sassy, strong and obstinate girl who catches Adam’s eye and whoa…let the games commence. I really loved the push and pull between the two. It kind of reminded me of the story You but with Joe as all buff and handsome. And more after the bad guys and less just plain psychotic… Anyway, the story was everything I love about dark romances with the crazy, obsessive, possessive alphas and the kickass girls who love them. I can’t wait to read more about The Soldiers of Anarchy and see all of the guys and the women who earn their hearts.

Three Little Words by Madison Park ~ Release Blitz w/ Excerpt!

NOW LIVE! Three Little Words by Madison Park is available now!

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.
