And the deeper I fall down the rabbit hole, the more determined I am to bring them down.

*RUTHLESS KINGS is book 2 in the Windsor Academy series and cannot be read as a standalone. It is a dark high school bully romance that may contain triggers for sensitive readers. Due to mature content, it is recommended for readers 17+ only.

I have been waiting extremely impatiently for this one to come out after we were left with a colossal cliffhanger at the end of Wicked Lairs. I desperately needed to know what happened. Will Jazz survive or will she bleed out alone in the woods before someone finds her? Who attacked her and why? Did Kingston or shit, maybe even Bentley have anything to do with it. Do they genuinely care about her? So. Many. Questions.

“Maybe I’ll feel differently once I’m clear headed, but right now, every person I’ve met since my mom died is a suspect.”

Here I thought nothing could top the first book and then Laura Lee goes and gives us Ruthless Kings. Every single thing about this book was absolutely amazing. Yes,we get some answers to the pile of questions we were left with after the first book. But then we get a whole new shit load of mystery and suspense leading to more questions. It was killing me as more secrets are revealed and Kingston, Bentley and Reed open up to Jazz but things start to make sense. What the hell is wrong with Kingston and Bentley’s creepy, old-ass, nasty fathers. Ugh…they are both pieces of work. I really hope they get what is coming to them. Tons of mystery in this book as they try to find out who attacked Jazz and out their fathers for the horrible shit they are doing while Jazz still doesn’t know who to trust.

“You matter to us. Very few people fall under that umbrella.”

Besides all the mystery, suspense and drama going on there is also a whole lot of insanely hot, super sexy scenes. Like OMG so freaking hot. The chemistry between Jazz and Kingston was off the charts from the get-go but there was a ton of sexual tension between Bentley and Jazz in the first book. Is it wrong that I was hoping the whole time their party of two turned into a party of three permanently? Well, if it’s wrong, I don’t want to be right. I love Jazz and how kick ass she is. She’s one of my favorite characters I have read in a long time. Kingston is super alpha and insanely hot. How can you go wrong with a great combo like that? I love him but then damn, I also love Bentley. We find out some things about all their pasts in this book and oh, my heart hurt for Bentley. We can’t forget quiet Reed who kind of shocked me in this one. We also get introduced to some new characters in this installment that I am hoping we get to see a little more of in the next book.

“I’m sick of being surrounded by all these secrets and lies. I’m fed up with the uncertainty. I know we need to keep playing this game for the greater good, but I need something real too, and you’re the realest fucking thing I’ve ever known.”

That’s all I can say about this book without giving too much away. You just really are going to want to experience it all for yourself! I already know this series will be up there with my favorite read of the year. We are also left with another huge cliffhanger at the end of this one and I can’t wait for the next one to come out!! Loving this series so much!

Ruthless Kings Teaser 2

EXCERPT

I can’t stop thinking about Kingston—the man is a walking contradiction.

Most of the time, he’s broody and mysterious, in a totally sexy way—like catnip for the female population. But when he’s with the guys outside of school, he’s laid back and even goofy sometimes. With Ainsley and me and hell, even Belle, he’s super-protective, and there are these moments where he’s incredibly thoughtful or kind. Regardless of which Kingston you’re getting at the time, there’s always this underlying rage I don’t think many people pick up on. Or maybe they don’t understand the extent of it.

I remember watching a video during my freshman year science class about the Mount St. Helens eruption. The landscape was breathtaking, loved by outdoor enthusiasts, or simply anyone searching for a peaceful place to spend their day. The volcano sat quietly for over one hundred years, all the while, pressure was building beneath the surface. There was sufficient evidence of its impending reawakening, but the reports weren’t taken seriously enough by the general public. Tourists continued flocking to the area—some even evading roadblocks and ignoring air restrictions—until the perfect combination of events caused a cataclysmic explosion. The eruption was so powerful, it literally blew the top off the mountain, killing everyone in the vicinity.

Kingston reminds me of that volcano. If you don’t look beyond his surface beauty, if you ignore the warning signs, you’re putting yourself at risk. He’s dangerous—perhaps even deadly—and I’d be a fool to forget that.

I love a good bully romance. They are one of my all-time favorite reads so I am always on the hunt for new ones. Lately they all seem to kind of blend together. With Taunt Her, the first book in the Rebels at Sterling Prep novel Caitlyn Dare shows us how a bully book is done and done right! Yes, there is the whole typical bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks who makes the girl fall in love with him and then shatters her poor unsuspecting heart. But there is so much more to this story. This book did not blend in with the crowd. It stood out for so many reasons and it was amazing! Tons of drama, suspense and angst. Then we get thrown a huge ass cliffhanger at the end. My jaw hit the floor and we’re left wondering what the hell is going to happen. Book two can’t release soon enough!

Ace, Conner and Cole Jagger didn’t exactly have it easy in life. They got by having each others backs and doing what they had to do. When something happens and they’re left totally on their own, rich Uncle James sweeps in and takes them. They go from their broken down trailer to his mansion and a new fancy ass prep school. Uncle James seems to be hiding something but Ace will do anything for his brothers. He is hoping the move across town will help his bothers with school and football all while helping him get revenge on the man he blames for ruining his life.

“We’re moving. Headed over the border to the rich side of town. Like we’re ever going to fucking fit in there.”

Remi isn’t exactly looking forward to the start of senior year or spending time with a bunch of people who used to be her friends. When the Jagger brothers enter her life she’s looking forward to it a whole hell of a lot less. Her Mom just so happens to be dating their Uncle. Unfortunately for her she will be seeing them a lot more then she wants to. Remi and Ace have this crazy chemistry right off the bat but he thinks he knows all about girls like her. Stuck up rich girls who think the world revolves around them. Unfortunately for Remi, she fits perfectly in his plan for revenge so Ace isn’t letting her out of his sight. Tons of push and pull here as well as a shit load of drama and even more trouble.

“Ace Jagger is everything people whisper about him. Cold. Cruel. And a complete asshole.”

I loved Remi. She isn’t who the Jagger brothers originally think she is. Maybe she used to be but things are so different now. She’s strong and resilient. I love that she finally found the courage to stand up for herself as the story went on. Ace comes off as your typical bad boy with a chip on his shoulder. The guy all the girls know they should stay away from but are lining up for a chance with him anyways. But there is so much more to him. Even though he is an asshole, he is also kind of a softy in parts of the story. I loved it. Will Ace get revenge on the man who he blames for ruining his life and will Remi be collateral damage? If you’re in the mood for a great bully read this one if for you! I loved this book and I can not wait until the next one releases!

“I want to pull her to me. Tell her she’s safe. But I don’t. I can’t. It’s not my place.”

Blurb

Arwen Sullyvan is a real nightmare.
Callous. Cold. Calculating.
And the first girl I ever loved. She’s the bad girl of Westbrook high, and I’m their precious golden boy.

For years, she’s delighted in punishing me. All because I’d fallen for her. And, like a fool, I still want her.

Then a drunken confession slipped through those plump lips, and I saw fear swirling in her stormy eyes.

Aidan Shaw is the bane of my existence.
Charming. Gorgeous. Noble.
He’s everything I never knew I wanted, and it scares the hell out of me. I’ve tried to keep my distance and bury those feelings.

But one stupid mistake—one moment of weakness in the face of temptation—was all it took to turn our flame into a fire.

He’s intent on loving me, but not even his golden touch can change my black heart.
He thinks he can break me.
But a savage can’t be tamed.

Arwen was less than thrilled when her Dad relocated them from Colorado to Tennessee the summer before her last year of middle school. But luckily for her and she meets Aidan on one of her daily graveyard visits. He declares them best friends and they quickly become inseparable all summer. Then a whole bunch of drama happens. Mean girls, secrets and betrayal.You know the drill. Now all the sudden Arwen acts like he doesn’t exist and for years Aidan has no idea why.

“We’ll never be right for each other. He doesn’t have a single flaw, while I collect them like trophies.”

Fast forward a few years and these two still aren’t on speaking terms. They basically avoid each other at all costs. Aidan is the golden boy in their high school. The football god that all the girls want but really just can’t have thanks to some behind the scenes meddling. Arwen is the bad girl of the school. The bully along with her small group. They may no longer be friends but the chemistry they once had is still there. You’ve got to hand to Aidan. He never gave up on them no matter how hard Arwen pushed or how cruel she was to him. They are thrown back together and there’s so much drama and uncertainty. He wants his Arwen back. The girl from the cemetery and she doesn’t know what the hell she wants. So begins the never-ending push and pull with these two. Aidan fought so hard for them and she fought just as hard to stay away until she just couldn’t anymore. But can they find the love they once shared or did their years spent apart do too much damage to both their hearts?

“My soul still yearns for the girl I fell in love with, but the one standing here now is merely a shadow of her.”

I was excited for this book because I am a huge fan of bully books and second chance romance. I loved the little twist it had going on…the bad girl being the bully to the golden boy. But sadly this book just didn’t do it for me. I wasn’t such a huge fan of this one. I didn’t get the whole bully vibe from it. I get she was supposed to be the mean girl and she was a straight up asshole sometimes. But it glossed over the whole bully aspects. Also, Aidan is supposed to be this golden boy…this god of the school but again there wasn’t a lot to that either. Most of the time it didn’t seem like he was a golden boy and she was a bully. It was like random scenes were thrown together at odd times throughout the book and you’d see slivers of both things but it just wasn’t enough to hold my attention or make me feel it in the story. I did like Aidan. I liked how he wasn’t afraid to show his feelings and wouldn’t give up. Even though at times I really thought he’d be better off just throwing in the towel and speedwalking away. Arwen…I really didn’t like her. Maybe that was my main issue with the book. I thought she was super selfish and annoying. I get she thought she had valid reasons for treating Aidan like crap for years, but they were really lame to me. I guess it’s safe to say this wasn’t a favorite for me. It wasn’t a bad story but it just wasn’t for me.

“All these years, she’s been running. Running from me and her feelings. And she’s finally standing still. Finally giving me a chance to catch her.”

Excerpt

My pulse races when she begins to walk toward me, her lips spreading into a wicked grin, like a predator stalking down her prey. I turn to my locker, fumbling with the lock as I rush to get it open. By the time I throw my book inside, she’s at my back.

“Violet is with Thatcher now. Which I’m sure you’ve already heard. And he would not appreciate you eyeball fucking her.”

I sigh, slamming my locker as I turn to face her. “She’s not who I was focused on.”

I’m not sure why I’m baiting her again. For years, I was so hurt that I let her say and do whatever without putting up much of a fight. But it feels like something has shifted between us. I noticed that night at Sal’s and again at the benefit.

Arwen seems thrown by the pushback, her eyes flaring and pink tinting her cheeks. She lets out a hissing breath and leans in, planting her hands on either side of my head. “It sounds like you’re saying the hunger in your stare was for me, but that can’t be right. I know you’re not that stupid.”

My laughter causes her mask to slip again, her features softening with amused curiosity. “It’s not my intelligence in question here, it’s my sanity. You make me fucking crazy, Star.”

She jolts back, standing straight again as her arms fall to her side. “Stop calling me that.”

Star was the nickname I gave her right after we became friends. Until a couple of weeks ago, I hadn’t called her that since she broke my heart. It wasn’t intentional when I called her Star at Sal’s, but hearing it again definitely had an impact on her. There was a sadness and remorse in her eyes that I’d never seen before.

“Why?” I challenge. “Does it make you uncomfortable? Do you not like being reminded that we were friends once? That I cared for you?”

“Let it go, Shaw. Move on. It’s never going to happen.”

“No?” I grin, lovingly brushing her hair away from her face. “Your kiss told a different story.”

Arwen’s eyes darken as a storm brews inside of her, and there’s no shelter in sight. “You clearly misinterpreted the message.”

“Yeah, you’re right. I probably just need to hear it again.”

She grits her teeth at me when I laugh. “If you want me to make you bleed again, all you have to do is ask.”

A Love Song for Dreamers is the final book in the Rivals series and what a way to wrap up Annie and Tyler’s crazy, beautiful story. A big part of me desperately needed this book after that insane cliffhanger we were left with at the end of the last book. The other part of me wanted to hold off as long as possible to read it because I didn’t want it to be over. I loved Annie and Tyler right away. Through all their ups and downs and time apart, I grew to love their characters even more. Piper Lawson gave us the perfect ending to a fantastic series.

“This isn’t sweet. It’s anarchy. We’re not in love. We’re at war.”

This book picks up right where the last ended and we’re thrown into the aftermath of what happened on that fateful night just a few blocks from Tyler’s apartment. We knew, or at least I was desperately hoping, Tyler would recover but not all of him recovers right away. As much as they try to move forward, the weight of what happened turns Tyler into someone else. I wouldn’t say he is an asshole because man, I love me some Tyler. My heart broke for everything he went through. Sometimes life is just shitty and as much as two people are in love and desperately try to hold onto what was, life has other plans.

“Deep down, I know it is goodbye.”

It’s been over two years since Annie and Tyler have talked face to face. They are thrown back together in a world they both understand all too well, but it’s still right there. The love, the chemistry and the passion between two people who have traveled so many roads to get where they are. But they aren’t the same people they were. They started out as two passionate teenagers who have grown into young adults with dreams and careers that put them in different places. A happily ever after does not come easily for these two. It’s a messy road with a lot of obstacles but no matter what gets thrown their way they somehow always find their way back to each other. His dream is on the west coast and hers the east. Can they find a way to make both their dreams come true? Together?

“It’s beautiful. It’s messy. It’s us.”

There was so much emotion stuffed into the pages of this series. I truly loved both characters so much. I laughed. I cried. And I swooned a lot. It was a roller coaster there for a while with some interesting twists and turns but I feel like the author gave us the perfect ending to a great series. I loved it so much!

“If I got to create my own world…we’d be together in it. Every single time.”

Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 19, 2020

BLURB

I met Brock Callahan at eleven, fell in love at fifteen and lost him at eighteen.

One moment, one single instance can change the course of your life, but I picked myself up, brushed myself off, and took that first step knowing it would be the hardest.

Years later, tired of existing but not living, I quit my job in Manhattan, sold my condo and moved to a log cabin in Wyoming.

When I wake in the bed of Killian Reid, mistaken for a one-night stand, I never imagined I’d fall for the man.

But I did.

Not at first; a slow fall, so gradual I didn’t realize I was no longer falling. I’d been given a second chance at a happily ever after.

And then Brock Callahan walks back into my life.

This book was amazing! The characters and the story…they were everything. My emotions are a jumbled mess and I feel like so so much was within the pages of this book. My heart bled and broke. I cried and got angry. I swooned and I held out the hope of healing for these amazing and complex characters. And then oh so gently, L. A. Fiore slowly pieces our hearts back together with a beautiful story of second chances and the healing power of letting go…no matter how hard it may be.

Cedar and Brock met as kids when she shared her piece of cake with a sad and broken boy. From then on an unbreakable bond was formed. They did everything together. For three years their friendship was a beautiful thing…until it wasn’t.

“Because from the minute I stepped into that fort, I became bound to you and you to me.”

Brock may have ended their friendship without telling her why but that doesn’t mean he was completely out of her life. They still lived in the same town and attended the same school. Cedar is shocked and confused that after three years of silence, Brock all of a sudden wants back into her life. It was so hard because you just knew these two loved each other so much and being apart was hard on both of them. When we find out why Brock made the choices he did, it’s truly heartbreaking. I cried for him right along with Cedar and her beautiful, kind family. They start to heal together and it’s a slow build up the first half of the book. When you think Cedar and Brock are who and where they are supposed to be, tragedy strikes and everything falls apart.

“I didn’t like giving up, but sometimes you had no other choice but to let go.”

Cedar was one of the most amazing characters I have read in a long time. She was brilliant, kind and beautiful. She was fierce, loyal and I love that she stayed true to who she was. Years pass and she decides enough is enough. She packs up her life in NY and moves to Wyoming determined to make her dreams come true and she definitely deserves it. This is where we are introduced to Killian. Cedar is given a second chance at something she thought may be lost forever. It was a slow burn for both of them as Cedar found herself again and slowly begin to heal. Just when we think this is it…this is how the story ends, Brock walks back into Cedar’s life.

“I know, down to my bones, that this is where I belong. Right here…with you.”

I absolutely loved this book. There was so much love, heartbreak, twists and turns. The characters and the story pulled me in from the first page. Even though I think it ended like it was supposed to, my heart was so torn…still is even while writing this. I loved Brock and my heart broke for him and all he had been through. The choices he had to make even when there really was no other choice. I also loved Killian and how he was there for Cedar and helped her find herself again. He showed her she deserved a love like he was ready and willing to give her. I love them both and how much they loved her. I would definitely recommend this amazing book!
