Donovan Kennedy is the girl dreams are made of.
Five years ago, she was our best friend.
Our moral compass.
The girl that held our hands everywhere we went.
The three of us were young. Innocent.
Nothing could touch us — not even heartache.
That was then.
Now she’s back. All grown up.
With red lips and long legs — a challenge waiting to be accepted. A prize that’ll turn our world upside down.
Brothers turned to enemies.
Friendships decimated.
Lies told.
Hearts torn apart.
We never expected to fall for the girl.
In the end, she’ll only choose one —Me.

Trilina Pucci is a new to me author and if this is normally how she writes? We'll become old friends quickly! haha.
While this is New Adult (not even close to a genre I usually read, I must have missed that in the description when I signed up for the arc) I couldn't put it down.
Liam, Donovan, and Grey were thick as thieves in their younger years (I say younger years when they're only like 17-18...geesh) and when she comes back, a senior in high school, she's every boys wet dream and most definitely not who Grey and Liam expected to see. They quickly became once again, inseparable and their love, an adult version.
I was hooked on the authors prose, her characterization which led to you forgetting (or I suppose not really caring) how young these characters really are. She writes the angst so well. The tension, the desire that emanates from each character is all you can feel. You forget that they're high school seniors (and as a mom that's a good thing because had my kids acted like that in high school I would have sent them to military school, haha)
There's some totally sexy times, there are times when you feel so sorry for these children that haven't been shown and sort of "normal parental love and caring", and there are times when you mutter "if you were my child I'd have spanked your ass and sent you to your room".
This author pulled no punches. She pushed these characters to find their way, choose their love, the rest of the world be damned. The choices, the hurt, the love. Friends, enemies, lovers. Vindication, revenge, these characters go full steam ahead in whatever they're feeling at the moment and you get that. The author makes you feel every single one of the emotions, the choices and their consequences.  
Had this been about older, even just so much as early 20's I think it would have had a different spin. It would have been easier as an "adult", lol I wanted to say older here, reader to "enjoy" the sex and all the references to it. But that being said, I don't know if the characters being older would have negated some of that amazing angst that was so well done. The turmoil of the child finding his way to adulthood would have diminished if the character were a bit older, and it was so well done as is.
A great 4.5 star read for me... and I'm off to find another book by this author, but perhaps one with older characters so I can enjoy the angsty, darker, needier sexy times. lol

Lies We Tell by Jeana E Mann Release Blitz with Rachel's Review


Lies We Tell by Jeana E. Mann is LIVE! Are you ready for the truth?
“I was not prepared for this book, but I loved every second of it!! I am a sucker for a good second-chance romance and Lies We Tell is AMAZING!!” ~Messy Bun Book Blog
One lie. One crazy, dark, dirty lie turned my world upside down. It dug its claws into my life, altered my future, and clouded my past.
I thought I was over him. The one who lied. I thought I’d moved on with a successful career, a fat bank account, and a sexy boyfriend.
All that changes when Owen Henry walks back into my life. He’s out on parole, standing on my front porch, looking sexier than ever. I want to hate him for what he’s done, but all I can do is think about how great his lips felt on mine the last time we kissed.
I’m so screwed.
*This book was released in 2017 as Monster Love and contains new content.

Kudos Jeana, on another wonderfully well written book.
Stella and Owen will leave you with all the feels!
These two characters are the epitome of true love.  

Stella and Owen were the "odd couple" for sure. Stella, a foster kid with a definite penchant for keeping out of the spotlight and Owen, the big guy on campus, popular and king of the football field. Each with a sibling that they have to "watch over" and keep out of trouble.
Fast forward eighteen years, and feel the connection Stella and Owen still have..even after all this time, a current boyfriend, and a prison sentence.
In Lies We Tell, the author devastates you and then fills you right back up with hope, with true love, with that happily ever after.
Well written, fabulous story line, wonderful characterization.

POISON by Jade West: Release Blitz with Rachel's Review

Title: Poison
Author: Jade West
Genre: Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 16, 2020


He was the man who destroyed me. The monster who left me in pieces over a decade ago.
I swore I’d never speak to him again, that I’d never set eyes on him again as long as I lived.
But I was wrong.
When life gets too much and you need to escape, the poison that might kill you becomes oh so tempting.

I craved his perverted ways, his smirk, his laughter as he pushed my body way past its limits.
I needed a release from the crazy. Just once.
Just one night. That’s what I told myself.
No strings, no illusions, no promises. Nothing but the lasting thrill of his flesh on mine.
The lasting hit of his poisonous touch.
But when poison runs through your veins, the way he runs through mine, it’s toxic and eats you alive.

This much passion always comes at a price...

My whole body was screaming out YES, even as my mind was screaming out NO.
He was toxic. Poisonous. The fatality of every scrap of my heart when he’d trashed it all to pieces without even looking back. The man who consumed me, promised me the stars, then destroyed me and left me a betrayed mush on the floor, sobbing my guts up and retching myself to sleep at night.
I hated him.
I’d sworn I’d always hate him.
But I couldn’t stop myself. I couldn’t stop my clit begging and my heart pounding and breath quickening. I couldn’t stop myself giving my needy, filthy shards over to the man who knew how to consume them.
This was me. The real me. The crazy me.
The me everyone I knew would curse at and tell me I was a stupid bitch for letting loose.
The me I’d thrown to the side and ignored through ten years of trying to live a cookie cutter life for my own wellbeing.
And failed.
I’d failed.
I was doomed the second I felt his heat at my back. His breath alive on my neck. His words a whispered hiss at my ear.
“I’ll do more than fuck you, Anna. I’ll take you so fucking hard you’ll be a mess for weeks, and you know it. You know full well the things I’ll fucking do to you, that’s why you’re here.”
Yes. I knew it.
Yes. That’s why I was there.
I let out my first desperate little moan as I turned to face him. His mouth was waiting. Open and fierce and wet.
My lips pressed to his, but his tongue was already set to take mine. It pushed in deep and danced a beautiful dance as his fingers gripped my face and held me tight.
And there it was. That simmer deep inside that you can’t fake or substitute. That heavenly desire that buzzes right through you and blacks out everything else in this life.
He did that to me.
He always had.
And I needed it right now.
I grabbed onto his hair and kissed him like my whole world depended on it. Like he was my salvation. My saviour and destroyer both at once. Enough to drive me out of my mind and lap it up in an orgy of the purest sin.
He was panting now, and there was that smirk of his I knew so well and loved so much, his mouth barely breaking contact.
“You’d better be ready to show me what a filthy little slut you still are.”
“Make me one,” I hissed right back. “Fucking take me.”

You're POISON runnin' through my veins..
Oh how I love a new Jade West book!  Every one is my new favorite :)
Anna and Lucas's story is hot, heavy, dirty, and so angsty! The characters are so easy to feel for. They've both been given a totally shit hand to play and are just trying to make the best of it.
In true Jade fashion, their sex is dirty, filthy, and so well written. I swear she can turn a person on with ease...even if her characters kink isn't yours!
Poor Anna, dumped by her lover, stressed out at work, and now, seizures. She couldn't catch a break if she tried. Until Sebastian. He's pulled her out of the wreckage and cared for her, and they have the perfect relationship.
Lucas has his Millie and Maya and while he's drinking himself into oblivion, loving Millie, and letting Maya roll over his manhood, he's a shadow of his former self. He goes through each day in a haze of nothingness.
A chance text, an illicit hookup, and a gazillion dirty things later, both Anna and Lucas are flying high.
Seriously though, even through the filthy dirty that is Poison, Jade brings a true love, heartwarming story. Through rape and secrets and lies that little spark remains, and neither Anna nor Lucas wants to break the chains.
A wonderfully well written, filthy, dirty love story.
4.5 stars 

Author Bio

Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she's plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she's ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you'd expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile
