Blog Tour! Cruel Intentions By Siobhan Davis

CI - BT banner.jpg

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees…

Cruel Intentions, an all-new dark, high school bully romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

CruelIntentions_ecover Final Final
Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape.
Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world.
Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.
Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.
Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancΓ©.
I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.
I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivalled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.
My life will hang in the balance.
But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.
I absolutely love bully romances, especially when there is a darker edge to them. I immediately drawn into Cruel Intentions! This one is one of the darker bully romances that I have read lately and let me tell you, I was on the edge of my seat, I screamed in outrage, I cried both angry tears as well as tears of sadness. The emotions that were pulled from my heart and soul drained me and I am still in a book hangover from it. There are twists and turns and just when you think you know what is happening, another plot twist happens, and you are asking yourself once more what the hell is happening. Abby and Cam will have you skipping sleep, you don’t need to eat, and ignore everything around you while your heart is being decimated by what you are reading.

Appearances are everything, especially when you are trying to show a hard exterior but on the inside, there is more to a person that most would ever imagine. Abby, on the outside it may look like she is the queen of the school, but secrets, betrayals and abuse are taking it’s toll on her. She has to keep up the faΓ§ade or face the wrath of her father and her fiancΓ©e. When three new students come into the school, powerplays begin to see who will come out on top. Will it be the original founding families, or will it be the newcomers who are making a play to take them down? I am trying so hard to not give away too much. Cam is a game changer for Abby, but will she like how he plays the game, and will she fall victim to his plans? Again, I won’t say because you have to read the book, but I will say this I didn’t see that coming and that cliffhanger had me screaming I need more now!

I need the next book asap! I have to know what is going to happen because I have a feeling, we are just at the beginning of this wild emotional rollercoaster ride that Ms. Davis has us on. Cruel Intentions exceeded my expectations and I absolutely can easily say it needs to be on your TBR lists immediately.

“Hopefully, Camden Marshall acts as a suitable distraction, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.” “I wonder what he’s like?” she muses, staring idly out the window. “I spent most of last night Googling him, but it’s so weird, there isn’t a single photo of him or his family online.” “Drew said they are notoriously reclusive.” “Apparently so, according to the gossip sites. Camden’s father has Techxet—Sawyer’s father’s company—on retainer, and a team of technical specialists is dedicated twenty-four-seven to finding and removing all photographic content and any unsavory online content. I could barely find out anything about him other than his father is Wesley Marshall, owner of a pharmaceutical company called Femerst, and a much-respected philanthropist, and he met Sawyer and Hunt when they all enrolled at a private New York school a couple of years ago.” “I bet he’s hot,” Jane speculates as our driver pulls into the entrance to Rydeville High. “Of course, he’s hot. I don’t need a picture to confirm that. Hot, rich assholes always stick together. We should know.” I spot Oscar fighting a smile through the front mirror. “Just don’t go kissing this one,” Jane whispers, her expression half serious, half mischievous. “Don’t worry. I’ll be going nowhere near Camden Marshall. Trust me on that score.”

Review Blitz! Hide Your Crazy By Lani Lynn Valw


I’m kind of a lady, but definitely more of a weirdo. 

Hearing the woman at the table behind him say that to her friend should’ve turned Logan Gibbs off.

It doesn’t. In all honesty, it only makes him listen harder.

He’s had enough weird in his life to last a lifetime. The last thing his complicated life needs is a woman in it who has no clue what color you get when you mix yellow and blue together.

Yet, her obvious blonde moments aren’t enough to deter him. Nor is her lack of finger-painting skills.

I’m a cop, not a miracle worker. 

Hearing the man in the group behind her say that should’ve had Katy Roberts running away as fast as her feet would carry her. Katy’s father’s a cop, and it’s hard enough to live her life with Daddy trying to dictate her every move. She needs another cop in her life like she needs yet another thing to go wrong.

To add onto that, she can’t find a job, has no love life to speak of, and has to be the oldest known virgin in Kilgore, Texas.

Yet, when she sees his painting—a painting that resembles a piece of the male anatomy more than the lighthouse they were supposed to be painting—she knows that she has to give him a chance.

The very last thing the two of them expect is for her father and his boss to force them to marry after an eensy-weensy accident. An accident that, surprisingly, both of them want.


Sometimes you show your crazy and sometimes you Hide Your Crazy! Okay sorry, I couldn’t help it I had to make a joke. I really loved Hide Your Crazy, but I also felt huge emotions and at times heartbreak while reading it. I refuse to spoil it but this book at times hit home more than I want to share or admit. For me, while reading Hide Your Crazy, memories of painful moments in my life went on a flashback and when you read it you may wonder which circumstance I may be referring to but while I will not say just know I took a moment to compose myself before moving on. Moving on…

Hide Your Crazy really captivated me from the beginning until the end. I loved the idea of a police officer or a few who are considered the problem children of the force but still have a position on the force. I did laugh out loud when I not only read but pictured the Chips reference when it came to their uniforms.

Logan and Katy are characters that I could not only relate to, but ones I could see as friends in real life. Out of all of the books that I have read from Lani Lynn Vale, Hide Your Crazy is one I think I have related to the most as well as being one that I truly could see happening in real life. Both Logan and Katy are characters that I will not soon forget. Yes, I normally focus on the chemistry and build up of a story, but this time I really just enjoyed the overall build up and  development of their relationship, the ways they acted like a team not just separate individuals really sold their relationship and story to me.
Hide Your Crazy may very well be my favorite book from Lani Lynn Vale yet and needs to be on your TBR lists! I loved that I connected with this story more so than some of her others. I am so excited about this new series and can’t wait to see what happens next!

Release Blitz! Man Fast By Krista Sandor




After a disastrous breakup, Abby Quinn has sworn off men.

No dating. No boyfriends.

A complete Man Fast.

She’s starting over in Denver and landed a teaching position at a prestigious elementary school. It’s a temporary post. But if she does a good job, the position could be permanent.

She thinks she has everything under control until the city’s most notorious playboy and heir to the Bergen Mountain Sports Empire, Brennen Bergen, is assigned to volunteer in her classroom.

Too bad the last thing this womanizer wants is to be bored senseless surrounded by children.

But he’s also in a bind.

Forced to shape up or be cut out of his family’s fortune, Brennen must prove he’s a contributing member of the community and not a liability to the business’s bottom line.

Tempers flare and sparks fly when the bad boy billionaire and the determined teacher must work together to prepare the class for a highly anticipated school competition.

Abby needs this job.

Brennen needs his family off his back.

Will an attraction between them spell trouble for Abby or will Brennen finally have met his match?

Man Fast is the first book in the Bergen Brothers Series.


I believe this is the first time that I have read a book by this author and while liked Man Fast overall. I wasn’t blow away. I think the reason why I didn’t fully love it is because I think I am slowly getting over the fake relationship troupe, or maybe it was just that I didn’t click with this author’s writing style. I Something about this one just didn’t click for me so I am not going to go on and on with this review. Maybe this will work for other readers but sadly it just didn’t work for me.

Heat rose to Abby's cheeks. She'd had enough. 
She plucked the tiny glue stick from Brennen's large hand and jabbed it into his chest. “One, two, three! Eyes on me!” she said, in the meanest voice she’d ever used to recite that common teachers' prompt.
The man cocked his head to the side and met her gaze.
She held the glue stick in place. “I don’t care who you are. You could be the King of Colorado.”
His lips quirked into a smirk. “Nope, that doesn’t exist.”
Anger surged through her. “You could be the Duke of Denver.”
“Still a no.”
She jabbed the glue stick a fraction harder. “Maybe you can understand this? In my classroom, I am the CEO. I am the B, O, double S, boss. And what I say goes.”
His eyes went wide, and he stared at her. It wasn’t the aloof stare he’d given her earlier. No, this look brimmed with astonishment. She could feel the heat of him. Sense every muscle in his body tensing like a predator deciding if he wanted to pounce. Inches apart, he held her gaze. The tiny glue stick, the only thing separating them. Her body zinged, and she wasn’t sure if it was from laying down the law or that if she pushed up onto her toes and he bent down, their lips would be mere millimeters apart.

Release Blitz! The Highlander's Forbidden Bride By Maddison Faye


Being arranged to marry a Highlander lord is hardly uncommon.

But when he happens to be gorgeous, powerful, dominant, and your best friend’s dad?
Well, that’s another story…

Lachlan McDougall is a lot of things: powerful, ruggedly handsome Highlander Lord, fierce ex-soldier, my soon-to-be-husband

…And my best friend’s dad.

I grew up in their castle, under his eye. But secretly, I’ve wanted him since before I even knew what the word meant. On the surface, I’m marrying him for political reasons: to stop a war and save his lands.

On the inside, though, binding myself to Lachlan McDougall is a fantasy I’ve dreamt a thousand times.

I know this is wrong, and a sin. But once I lose myself in those dark, piercing eyes, and once I feel his big, powerful hands on me, and once I taste those beautiful lips?

…Well, it turns out, I might not be the only one with a forbidden little secret.

In two days, I’ll be married to a man who I’ve married a hundred times, in my head. The man who’s taken me to bed ten times that number in my dreams.

Twice my age, a scandal waiting to happen, and my best friend’s father.

…I’m in so much trouble.


I am addicted to this series by Madison Faye! It has been a while since I have really enjoyed a Hilghlander romance, and while these are definitely not your typical ones, they are still quick hot and sexy novellas that I have been devouring! The Highlander’s Forbidden Bride was another that I truly really enjoyed. I mean what isn’t hot about a forbidden romance, add in some kilts, ad a sexy older hero and this book whore was in heaven. Which the added bit of suspense and danger I just couldn’t get enough! I don’t want to spoil it especially since it is such a fast read so I am not going to go into a lot of detail but will say this. If you want a quick and hot read with a side of forbidden and men in kilts, then The Highlander’s Forbidden Bride is the one you should be reading!

ARC Review! Malum: Part 2 By Amo Jones

Some girls don’t like pretty things.

Some girls like things that are destructive, and toxic. Things that fuel our bodies with adrenaline and bring our demons to their knees.
They say magic isn’t real, but it’s it the closest way to describe love? It doesn’t exist physically. It merely exists around us, within us, possessing our souls and making us do stupid shit. Shit like falling in love with a boy who knows how to rip my world apart and raise hell with a simple flick of his wrist. Their secrets are now mine. I’m not just in the middle of this game, I’m helping orchestrate it. Can the cries of my aching soul be enough to drown out the burning embers of my mistakes?
The mind strengthens the heart, roughing the edges to prepare it for war. This is a war I will not win. This is a war of fate. π‘†β„Žπ‘’’𝑠 π‘”π‘œπ‘–π‘›π‘” π‘‘π‘œ π‘π‘Ÿπ‘’π‘Žπ‘˜. π‘†β„Žπ‘’’𝑠 π‘”π‘œπ‘–π‘›π‘” π‘‘π‘œ π‘“π‘Žπ‘™π‘™. π‘†β„Žπ‘’ 𝑀𝑖𝑙𝑙 π‘’π‘£π‘’π‘›π‘‘π‘’π‘Žπ‘™π‘™π‘¦ π‘π‘œπ‘šπ‘’ π‘π‘Žπ‘π‘˜ π‘‘π‘œ π‘šπ‘’, π‘œπ‘› π‘Žπ‘™π‘™ π‘“π‘œπ‘’π‘Ÿπ‘  π΅π‘’π‘π‘Žπ‘’π‘ π‘’ π‘‘β„Žπ‘–π‘  𝑖𝑠𝑛’𝑑 π‘Ž π‘“π‘Žπ‘–π‘Ÿπ‘¦ π‘‘π‘Žπ‘™π‘’ 𝐼 π‘Žπ‘š π‘›π‘œ π‘˜π‘›π‘–π‘”β„Žπ‘‘.

With every Amo Jones book that I read it takes me days after to finally be able to attempt to put my thoughts together enough to write a review. Why is it that way you may ask? Well it is because my heart, mind, and soul are destroyed, the pieces of them all damaged beyond repair and I am emotionally and physically drained, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Malum Part 2 was one of my most anticipated reads, especially after the cliffhanger from hell in part one, and let me tell you the twists and turns, the mind fucks and the emotions that it pulls from you made the wait worth it! I was absolutely captivated from the first word until the very last!

Nate needs a queen to his king, he needs someone who can handle both sides of Nate, one who can measure up to no other because she in fact is herself the standard to compare the rest. Nate needs someone who can rule beside him, now is that person Tillie, well you have to read it to find out for yourself. With the way things ended in the previous book, you don’t know what to believe any more, relationships are broken, lies are told, truths are revealed, and a happy ending does not look like it will ever happen. Everything that Tillie went through and goes through may possibly break her beyond repair, and Nate doing what he does only makes it worse. If you thought that Nate was an unemotional asshole before, well you haven’t seen anything yet. My heart broke for Tillie, for Nate, for Madison and for Bishop.

I threw my kindle more than once and my liver still hates me for how much wine I drank while reading Malum Part 2, but I would do it all over again and again just to get more of our favorite kings. Amo Jones is hands down the queen of angst with her ability to stay on the absolute edge of your seat, the way she decimates her readers hearts and souls and her ability to make this book whore throw her kindle more than once. Malum Part 2, as well as Malum Part 1 if you haven’t already, are hands down MUST reads. I am already wishing we had the next book, because I can’t get enough of our Elite Kings.
