RELEASE DAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Play Dirty by JA Huss

Title – Play Dirty
Author – JA Huss
Publication Date – June 27, 2018
Series – Jordan’s Game #4

From NYT Bestselling Author, JA Huss, comes the final sexy standalone in the Jordan’s Game series. Can a threesome really work? Or does it always crash and burn at the end?

They were never meant to be just two. It was always three. But seven years ago Jordan Wells broke the trust he’d built with Alexander and Augustine and everything changed.

Everyone moved on and got over it. Put the past behind them where it belonged and started new lives.

But now Alexander and Augustine are back—looking for a new game and the final third to complete their threesome.

And they won’t take no for an answer.

Jordan Wells is about to play his final game.

Will he win? Or will he be too afraid to try?

Whew! I’m not quite sure I can put into words just how incredible of a writer that JA Huss is. With each new release, she surprises me and leaves me reeling for days once I’ve finished. The final book of Jordan’s game, the puppeteer’s story, was no exception either. Play Dirty hit a sweet spot that I was craving with its back and forth antics and veiled truths. Jordan left me guessing from the beginning until the end and I never really knew what to expect. He went through an incredible transformation, but that journey from point A to point B was nothing short of trying and totally worth every second as a reader.Furthermore, it was such a treat to see characters from the first books in the series and get a more complete picture and closure on their lives. There isn’t much I can say about Play Dirty without giving away the plot, but I promise that it delivers on so many different levels. If you’re a reader who loves kink, filth, and a flawed character learning the definition of love, this is definitely a MUST read!

RELEASE DAY REVIEW – Saved by Hazel James

Title – Saved
Author – Hazel James
Publication Date – June 21, 2018
Series – Battles #2

Leilani Moretti

Life is out to get me.
Humvee accident that took my right hand? Strike one.
Cancer three years later that stole my breasts and hair? Strike two.
An overbearing mother who seems to think I’m twelve, not twenty-seven?
Yeah, I’m out of there.

I thought moving to Oklahoma would give me a fresh start. I hoped life would finally cut me some damn slack. But between the inept people at the VA hospital and a boss who’s hell-bent on fixing me, I just want to be left alone. Haven’t I been through enough already

Clay Prescott

Joining the Army and deploying to Afghanistan? Hard.
Kicking an alcohol addiction and starting a business combining fitness and mental health
Harder.
Worth it? Hell yes.

Battles, my gym, has been so successful that I hired a new employee—a veteran herself—to help me open a second location. And that’s when it all goes to hell. Everything I’ve ever stood for is called into question, and the one person I thought I could count on disappears. I’ve spent the last ten years helping everyone else. What happens when I can’t even save myself?

How can I help others when I can’t even save myself? 

Every once in a while, a book comes along that makes you stop and think, taking it deeper than at face value. The words aren’t just words; they are a reflection of thoughts and feelings you’ve buried so far deep down in your heart. They are words of strength that you need to hear on repeat until you believe them. Saved by Hazel James is one of these incredibly well-designed novels. Not only is it a romance that will have you giggling and yearning for more, but it will give you butterflies in your stomach and a whole new outlook on self-perception.

Leilani had anything but a simple life; she wasn’t just a survivor, but the very definition of the term warrior. From the moment we are introduced to her, I wanted to take her in my arms and beg her to be my friend. She was always looking for a way to be more and overcome, and that journey is unforgettable. If you’re a fan of unwavering heroines, I have no doubt that you’ll absolutely adore Leilani and all that she has been through. However, she isn’t the only badass quality to Saved. The hero, Clay, is a force to be reckoned with all on his own. I loved his mentality, his belief in second chances, and the positive outlook he forced on those around him. He went through his own ups and downs in Saved that left me sympathizing for him, while still admiring and rooting for him. Together, these two were complete opposites in a lot of ways, yet perfectly compatible in all the right ones. Their relationship and the trials they went through constantly put a smile on my face, especially the way that they pushed each other to be better human beings.

There is a quality Hazel James has when putting pen to the paper that breathes life into her characters. The personalities and the situations that they go through come across so genuinely that you can not help but become utterly invested. Saved is one of those stories that makes you take a long look at yourself, especially when saying “I can’t”, and re-evaluate your thoughts (or at least it did for me). There were multiple times when reading that I had to stop, breathe the words in, and really appreciate the weight of what James was saying. I certainly can’t recommend this book enough, but really I think that readers will quickly fall for anything that Hazel James produces. I’ve yet to be disappointed in a story that I’ve encountered from her, but Saved captivated me in a whole new way. I can’t wait for the world to fall in love with Leilani and Clay, just like I did!

RELEASE DAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – The Boyfriend Experience by JA Huss

Title – The Boyfriend Experience
Author – JA Huss
Publication Date – May 30, 2018
Series – Jordan’s Game #3

I NEED A BOYFRIEND… and I need one now…

WANTED
One bad-ass man with boyfriend experience.
Must be willing to fight dirty and work weekends, nights, and overtime.
Bad attitude a must. Bonus points if you’re hot, athletic, and sporting tattoos.

When I asked Jordan Wells for a Boyfriend Experience game I didn’t expect to get stuck with billionaire real-estate agent, Lawton Ayers. He doesn’t exactly fit the job description.

WANTED
One professional woman with business experience.
Must be willing to build a future together.
Successful entrepreneur a must. Bonus points if you’re a crazy local legend.

When Jordan Wells offered up Oaklee Ryan a last-minute business partner to seal a deal I’ve been working on for years, I didn’t expect beautiful, sexy, and multi-orgasmic to be on her list of qualifications.

But that’s what I got. And she’s perfect just the way she is.

Too bad she doesn’t want me to be HER boyfriend. Because she bought me for someone else…

There is a special quality when it comes to JA Huss’ writing that I simply can’t get enough of. She consistently wows me with relatable characters and surprising plot lines that keep me on the edge of my seat. When I read the blurb for The Boyfriend Experience, I developed a total preconceived notion in my head. Let me just say that what I ended up getting was nothing like I had put together, but SO much better!

“Well, some people get handed chaos and shut down. Like your parents. I don’t know anything about them, but typically people fall into a life like that because they can’t find a way out. The chaos overtakes them. But others thrive on it. It makes them stronger. Makes them rise up.”

Oaklee and Lawton began their relationship under very specific pretenses, but what unraveled developed into so much more. There were so many fun and flirty exchanges that it lifted my heart and made me incredibly happy. Oaklee was this badass heroine in a man’s world which just made me admire her that much more. Lawton was somewhat of an enigma to me; I don’t think he even knew who he was for a good portion of the novel. However, it was kind of fun watching him adapt to Oaklee’s needs in the game and therefore discover who he was at the core. I’ve come to expect surprises from Jordan and his games, but it definitely felt like a whole different ball game with these two.

“She is the reason we love to watch the Joker. And it doesn’t matter that we know he’s insane, that everything that comes out of his mouth is lies, that he’s going to betray anyone and everyone who gets in the his way — even those on his side. We want to believe he’s good underneath or we have to admit that evil is real. How do I fight that?”

I appreciate that Huss makes each of her books and really, all of her characters, stand out. Though there is usually an element of grief (whether over a person or circumstance), the method of overcoming is always so different. I never take Huss’ stories at face value because that road to triumph is always filled with raw emotion, tailored to each character. She has written so many books, yet every time it’s a unique journey that I’m brought on. I’ve said it once and I’m sure I’ll say it time and time again, but JA Huss is a not to be missed, must-click author. Though all of Jordan’s games have been fantastic, I think that The Boyfriend Experience might just be my favorite. I can’t wait to see what happens next when Jordan gets the tables turned on him!

RELEASE DAY REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – Passion Rising by JA Huss & Johnathan McClain

Title – Passion Rising
Authors – JA Huss & Johnathan McClain
Publication Date – May 8, 2018
Series – Original Sin #4

Old demons are back.

Maddie’s dealing with the fallout of her choices. Safety and happiness are relative, elusive things she’s desperate to have. But they will forever remain out of reach until the demons of her past are laid to rest.

Tyler’s mistakes resurface to haunt him and he’s just beginning to understand that money can’t fix a broken relationship. He must open his heart and search for answers he’d rather not find.

She wants peace in a world made of chaos.
He wants to rid himself of a lifetime of guilt.

They’re soul mates, but that’s no guarantee.
They’ll need to rely on each other to find their happily ever after.
Because the fight never ends—it just gets easier with someone at your side.

Of all the books in the Original Sin series, I have a feeling that Passion Rising will be the hardest to write a review for. JA Huss & Johnathan McClain have delivered an emotionally-packed conclusion that I certainly wasn’t expecting. There were moments of comedic relief and those that took a hit to my heart; there were outrageously hot scenes that left me aching for more and instances where I needed to pause and just take it all in. There is something special about this series, which is ridiculously hard to pinpoint, and in many ways, it’s reminded me why I started blogging in the first place.

“That life goes on, no matter what. The world never stops turning. The sun keeps rising, the night always comes, and then the light takes its place. Every twenty-four hours there’s a new opportunity for a fresh start.”

Honestly, there isn’t much I need to say in terms of the characters’ growth because this book was all about that final culmination of everything they have been through. Maddie and Tyler’s story was a breathtakingly beautiful journey of two very broken characters learning to navigate their personal tragedies in order to grow and ultimately learn their own worth. Over the course of the series, they’ve faced unfathomable obstacles, but somehow have pushed through each one. Passion Rising really forced both Maddie and Tyler to look at themselves and their circumstances and open their eyes. Whether it was with the help of each other, or their lives changing, there were moments of clarity that ultimately made me fall in love with these characters even more. Every single interaction felt meaningful in the grand scheme of things and it’s been a long time since I’ve experienced a book quite like that.

“Doctor Eldridge can’t argue against the fact that in order to start our own, individual races, we all need a trigger. An impetus. An inspiration. Something that kicks us in the ass and compels us to change, or to discover ourselves in a new way, or to want to even try. And if the starting pistol comes in the form of another person, so be it.”

Both of these authors’ words can easily stand on their own; however, it is almost as if one pushes the other to be better, therefore elevating the story as a whole. Their words felt carefully chosen with every emotion articulated in a way to make the reader stop and really put themselves in these characters’ shoes. The dual points of view felt completely unique, yet blended together so easily that at times I questioned whether it was really two authors writing it. It’s incredibly difficult to describe the style and overall feeling I received while reading Passion Rising. The story was sexy and suspenseful, but it was also surprisingly philosophical in a non-preachy manner. It’s something that I think readers will have to experience and witness for themselves to truly understand any sentiment I could attempt to explain. I can’t recommend this series enough, but I do have to urge anyone diving in to buckle up – because it is one heck of a wild ride!

RELEASE DAY BLITZ & GIVEAWAY – King’s Wrath by Nina Levine

Title: King’s Wrath
Author: Nina Levine
Series: Sydney Storm MC #5
Release Date: April 30, 2018

Finally meet the enigma that is King.

Our love wasn’t like everyone else’s.
There wasn’t a first date or flowers and gifts.
We didn’t have a song or cute nicknames for each other.
There were no calls during the day to check in with me, no coming home to cook me dinner, and no foot massages at the end of a long day.
That wasn’t how he loved.
But love me he did.
Madly, deeply, passionately, completely.
King loved with everything he had.
He just loved a little differently to most.

This is King’s story. From the beginning. All the ugly and all the beautiful, by the end of this duet you will come to understand the man behind the club.

King’s story will be told over two books – King’s Wrath & King’s Reign.

Nina Levine delivers the first part of King’s long-awaited story with this intense new addition to the Sydney Storm MC series. King’s Wrath is nothing I ever could have anticipated and yet everything I had hoped for. The journey Nina Levine begins in this novel is gripping and raw, perfectly capturing the ferocious enigma that is the Sydney Storm MC president. A twisted story that is only just getting started, prepare yourself for a few surprises as this book takes readers back to the beginning with King. The perfect mix of dark deeds, unexpected feeling, and electrifying chemistry, this novel dives deeper than ever before and promises to leave readers utterly addicted and begging for more.

“We loved each other too much. Too fiercely. Too fucking savagely. We would never survive this kind of love.”

King’s Wrath chronicles King’s path to Storm and his climb to club president, before picking up where the events of Hyde’s Absolution left off. King’s history was gritty, dark, and revealing, laying the groundwork for the MC man that inspires both fear and inexplicable intrigue. Nina Levine thoroughly surprised me as she unraveled King over the course of this story, demonstrating the breadth of his emotional turmoil and the depth of his personal pain. There was also a surprisingly compassionate and careful side to this mysterious biker that had only ever been hinted at before. It was this beautiful dichotomy that had me falling hard and fast for King.

“The worst kind of betrayal comes from those you love.”

While King’s Wrath is not a love triangle, two women consume King in this book: Ivy, his first love and biggest regret, and Lily, a new face with a fierce heart. While fundamentally different, both women are stubborn, outspoken, and push King in ways he’s powerless to deny. Nina Levine did a fantastic job developing both of these characters to be clear individuals with distinct voices and I’m curious to see where she plans on taking Ivy and Lily as the storyline progresses. Together with King’s siblings who exposed his tender, more thoughtful side, they helped reveal the man I always knew was buried beneath the ink and anger.

“As fast as we’d begun, we were done. And I was reminded once more that the journey through life was best taken alone.”

Storm MC is definitely back and ready for war in King’s Wrath. Readers will not be disappointed with glimpses of series favorites throughout the book. Nina Levine manages to make diving back into her MC world feel effortless and I was instantly right at home again with Storm. Paced to be devoured, this book had me riveted. Nina Levine’s writing absolutely enraptured, dripping with vibrant imagery and the kind of raw emotion that evokes a visceral response in the reader. I felt this one all the way through and I can’t wait to get my hands on what is sure to be the heart-pounding conclusion to this story. King’s journey was every bit as captivating, infuriating, and full of surprises as the man himself and its only just beginning.

NEW RELEASE REVIEW – Flesh Into Fire by JA Huss & Johnathan McClain

Title – Flesh Into Fire
Authors – JA Huss & Johnathan McClain
Publication Date – April 17, 2018
Series – Original Sin #3

Payback is owed.

And Maddie Clayton is going to collect. This time Carlos and Logan have gone too far. People are dead, lives have been changed, and she’s had enough. Plus, she’s got the Devil on her side, so when an enemy turns into a friend with an idea of how to take Carlos down, she’s in.

Tyler Morgan has been fighting back his whole adult life. He’s ready for anything when it comes to payback. But endangering Maddie can’t be part of the deal. Unfortunately for him, once Maddie gets an idea in her head, there’s no stopping her.

Her debt has been paid in blood and she wants revenge.

His fight is still there, but now he’s got more at stake than himself.

The end is coming.

But even if they win against Carlos, they can still lose each other.

I hope any reader who dives into Flesh Into Fire has buckled in, because it is one hell of a ride! JA Huss and Johnathan McClain have delivered a book filled with action, suspense, and riveting scenes to keep you on the very tips of your toes. I could not stop turning the pages to see just how everything would play out. The characters are back, stronger than ever, and you definitely won’t want to miss it!

“This is going to end badly…but revenge always has a price. And I’m willing to pay it.”

If I had to describe this third book of the Original Sin series in one word it would be climax. So many different things come to a head and explode in every way imaginable. Maddie has gained so much strength and footing from the devastation of what she has been through. She’s growing out of that timid, just surviving mode, and I felt like she was starting to fight for what she wanted. Furthermore, Tyler became the ultimate protective hero of perfection. I absolutely adored seeing him get worked up and realize where his life was headed. He took control and started to work toward the future he realized was okay to deserve. Both these characters felt so broken in the first couple books, but have really matured and grown. It’s made for such a beautiful transformation over the course of the series, and happens to be one of my favorite things about these books.

“It’s not lost on me that history is nothing more than the passage of time. And that we record time to give us some sense of place in our own stories.”

Whether you’re in the mood for romance, action, or comedy, this book seriously has it all. Flesh Into Fire is a constant barrage of events that will leave your head spinning in a good way. Tyler’s comedic inner monologues paired with the insane chemistry he has with Maddie mixes for a trifecta of indulgence. Once again, JA Huss and Johnathan McClain shine each in their own right, while also elevating each other. It’s definitely fascinating to have a male/female partnership writing a male and female character, making them all the more authentic. I’m already dying to dive into the last book of the series and see how this dynamic duo ties up loose ends. This series has been a rollercoaster ride of events, and I just know that the ending will not disappoint!

NEW RELEASE REVIEW & GIVEAWAY – The Pleasure of Panic by JA Huss

Title – The Pleasure of Panic
Author – JA Huss
Publication Date – April 10, 2018
Series – Jordan’s Game #2

From NYT Bestselling Author, JA Huss, comes a new sexy standalone in the Jordan’s Game series. Issy is about to have the night of her life! Her sexual fantasy is about to come true thanks to Jordan Wells and his little fantasy fulfillment business. Or is it?

A new day. A new game. A new girl to (try and) please.
Issy Grey is a control freak. There’s no problem she can’t solve. Issy’s also a successful self-help author, presenter, and life coach. She has every answer, every time you ask for it.

That is… until her BFF butts into her life and signs her up for a sexual fantasy fulfillment game she never asked to play!

Now she can’t turn it off! She can’t quit, because Jordan Wells refuses to admit she’s even a player!

And she can’t get rid of the man assigned to pleasure her with panic, because he’s her new bodyguard!

Just… WTF?

I don’t know how JA Huss continues to come up with mind-blowing, unique stories, but I am so freaking glad that she does! The Pleasure of Panic is the second book in the Jordan’s Game series, though if you understand the premise, it’s not really required to read the first. There were so many twists and turns that I was never able to find my footing, but I mean that only in the best way possible. The characters piqued my interest, but the plot kept me turning the pages as fast as I could. I definitely felt myself needing more and more of this fantastic book.

“Is it a game? Or isn’t it? I can’t tell anymore.”

Issy and Finn were an unexpected couple in that I’m not sure I ever would have paired them together in my head. Issy was the very embodiment of strength and perseverance. She was a survivor who yearned to teach other women how to live to their full potential, and I loved how she got that message across. She used the scars of her past to brighten her future and it instantly endeared me to her, even if she used hiding as her coping mechanism. Our hero Finn was, in many ways, lost and just surviving his day to day; he was stuck in his past and never really moving forward. When they came together, it felt like they offered each other a power to free themselves. They didn’t have to be tied down by chains anymore and I loved how that ended up playing out. It served as an interesting dynamic to watch unfold because while I loved the characters in the beginning, they also grew and changed in such a short amount of time.

“Because hours to us are like years for others. And we’ve spent a lifetime together since we met last night.”

The Pleasure of Panic was a twisted story that I never wanted to end. There was a surprise around every corner that constantly kept me on my toes. If you like your romance dirty with your suspense even dirtier, I definitely suggest checking this novel out. The characters are quirky and fun, the plot is engaging, and the writing is out of this world. There’s a reason Huss is one of my go-to favorite authors, but The Pleasure of Panic definitely took it to a whole new level!


ISSY

The problem with this night is… some of it was fun. I mean, I’m pretty disappointed that this isn’t a game. Unless he’s lying, but I really don’t think he’s lying. He can’t be that good an actor. And we really were down at the Federal Building and I really was locked in an interrogation room, and he and his partner really did question me.

So what the fuck is going on?

And, more importantly, why the fuck is this happening to me? I mean, I was just minding my own business, doing my thing, and then wham. Bullshit everywhere I turn. It’s bad enough that Chella talked Jordan into a game for me. I mean, that’s a little bit humiliating all by itself. But then to be turned down?

“I didn’t ask for any of this,” I say, looking out the window as the world whips by. We’re on I-70 now, heading back towards Denver, and I can just see the glow of city lights peeking over the top of the mountains. There’s no traffic, so we should be back in downtown in like twenty minutes.

“OK,” he says. But it’s one of those OK’s that really means, You’re full of shit.

“I didn’t.”

“Fine. I’m agreeing with you.”

“But your agreement is really just placating me.”

“If you say so, Issy.”

I huff out a breath of air and decide to drop it.

“But you don’t make sense. And you know that. Your background is… well, spotty.”

Yup. It is. But there’s no way he could find out about my past. Like, literally, no way. That girl doesn’t exist anymore. So I don’t agree or disagree with his initial assessment.

“Which means it’s either completely made up or you’ve somehow erased parts of it. So which is it?”

I ignore him.

“I’m gonna figure it out.”

“Why?” I say, turning my body to face him. I’m angry now. “Why do you need to figure it out? Why can’t you just drop the whole fucking thing?”

“Because you’re somehow involved in a terror threat.”

“Says you,” I spit. “That’s probably bullshit. You guys probably made that up to make me vulnerable. To make me cooperate. And it’s not gonna work.”

“We didn’t make it up.” He laughs. “This is the fucking FBI, Issy. We’ve got better things to do than play sex games with you.”

“Could you just shut up?”

“Fine,” he says, pressing a button on the navigation panel. Music starts to play, something beat-y, and hypnotic, and dark, which does nothing for my already dark mood. But he stays silent all the way into downtown. All the way to my house.

I open the door as soon as the car stops, just trying to get away from him as quickly as possible, but then he shuts the car off.

“No,” I say, shaking my head, one leg already out the door. “No, you’re not coming in.”

“Fine,” he says, shrugging. “But I’m not leaving either.”

I get out, slam the door, walk up to my house, keys already in hand, open the door, slam it closed behind me, and flick on the light.

And then I do most of that backwards. I open the door back up, slam it behind me, skip down the porch stairs, run down the walkway, and open the car door back up.

“Forget something?” he asks, while texting on his phone.

“Someone was in my house.”

He stops texting. “What?”

“It’s ransacked, Finn!” I grab my hair with frustration. “Someone went through my house!”

A RAFFLECOPTER GIVEAWAY

BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY – Recovered by Jay Crownover

Title: Recovered
Author: Jay Crownover
Release Date: March 27, 2018

It was hate at first sight……

Affton
I hated Cable James McCaffrey.
He was entitled, spoiled, a user…and an addict.
He was out of control and didn’t bother trying to hide it.
He had everything anyone could want but still seemed miserable and lost.
Every move he made, every mistake he stumbled his way through, rubbed me the wrong way. However, I couldn’t stop myself from trying to save him from himself when no one else would. In the sweltering heat of the summer, Cable taught me that having it all means nothing if you can’t have the one thing you want more than anything else.

Cable
I was obsessed with Affton Reed.
She was rigid, uptight, and no fun. There was something about her innate goodness that called to me.
She acted like she was above all the normal faults and failures that clung to the rest of us like the scent of smoke after a fire.
I was infatuated with her, but that didn’t stop me from acting like she didn’t exist.
In the scorching heat of summer, Affton taught me that there is always a way back from the brink of despair. She showed me that the trick to having it all was realizing that it was already there, in my hands. All I had to do was hold onto it.

The road to recovery is full of twists and turns no matter who is in the driver’s seat.

An unforgettable journey of forgiveness and healing, Jay Crownover has truly outdone herself with Recovered. Cable and Affton’s story is steeped in tragedy, regret, and loss, yet there is something about their inimitable connection and undeniable chemistry that promises to mend even the most battered of hearts. Jay Crownover does not disappoint, delivering a journey that shatters before it soothes. Affton and Cable are as unlikely as they are meant for each other, and I completely lost myself in their painful honesty, easy banter, incendiary attraction, and deep understanding of one another’s pain.

“Well . . . I’m going to ruin you, and you . . . you’re going to do your best to save me.”

Cable is nothing you’d expect in a hero and yet somehow by the end of the book, I couldn’t see him as anything else. I was immediately enchanted by Cable’s charm, but it was his flaws that completely stole my heart. Haunted, angry, and desperately lost, Cable was challenged (and challenging in his own right) at every turn. As Affton shined her light on his darkness, a vulnerable, broken boy emerged with the inner strength to overcome his demons. I adored the way Jay Crownover so completely unraveled this character and the care with which she pieced him back together. Heart wrenching, gritty, and real, Cable’s personal transformation was wholly satisfying.

“We ignited. We went up in flames. We burned and singed each other over and over again.”

There should be more heroines like Affton. This quiet, contemplative girl blew me away as she repeatedly proved to be the force of nature capable of knocking Cable off his feet. Affton had plenty of her own insecurities and fears, and it was these qualities that made her so easy to relate to and root for. Affton experienced the world with a genuine understanding of life’s capacity for pain and disappointment and yet she held out hope that tomorrow would be better. The walls Affton built crumbled in Cable’s presence, and I enjoyed every moment of this character’s unmasking. Jay Crownover opened Affton up slowly and purposefully, revealing a woman with the power to make a difference.

“I thought hating Cable James McCaffrey was overwhelming. Hating him had nothing on loving him.”

Recovered wasn’t as dark as I had imagined. Jay Crownover effortlessly balanced the gritty, hard truth of addiction with plenty of tender, hopeful, sexy and unexpectedly sweet moments. The author’s personal connection to Affton and Cable’s journey was undeniable, made obvious by the overwhelming raw emotion and genuine vulnerability of this story. I didn’t just read this one; I devoured it. Affton’s cracked heart and kind soul made her the perfect match for Cable’s rough and damaged bad boy persona. Together, these characters made magic. Recovered is Jay Crownover at her absolute best and unquestionably one of my favorite books this year!



5++ Stars!!!

CABLE

I knew I was a mess.

Unhinged and hanging on the precipice of becoming someone who was beyond any kind of redemption. I teetered on the brink of making bad choices every moment I was awake, but somehow, some way, I always managed to keep myself from going completely over. It was the look in Affton’s eyes when I came out of my epic freak-out that had me keep one foot on the line and one foot behind it. There was genuine concern for me in those pretty, almost purple eyes. There was worry and want she tried to hide in that gaze, as well. She tried to hate me, but she was too good of a person, too compassionate and empathetic to follow through on those emotions. She cared, and it scared the holy fuck out of me.

I had no clue what to do with these new feelings. I was sure I didn’t want her to give a crap about me. I had no idea how to navigate genuine, sincere compassion. I was inexperienced in dealing with emotion that wasn’t leveraged or manipulated. I was unsettled and acutely aware of her.

Every breath she took, I swore I could hear.

Every time she blinked, those eyes that saw far too much and witnessed as I ducked and dodged her. I watched them grow dark blue, blooming like a bruise as she tried to hide the way my evasion hurt her.

Every time I sidestepped and ignored her, I swore I could feel the way her blood billed, and her aggravation made her warm from head to toe. I got hard at the way she flushed a pretty pink when I pissed her off, but I wasn’t going out of my way to tell her that. I wasn’t going out of my way to tell her anything.

RELEASE BLITZ & GIVEAWAY – Angels Fall by JA Huss

Title – Angels Fall
Authors – JA Huss & Johnathan McClain
Publication Date – March 27, 2018
Series – Original Sin #2

Sometimes angels fall.

Maddie doesn’t really owe drug lord, Carlos Castillo, money. So she hadn’t taken his threats seriously. Until now. He wants it, whether she owes it or not. And if she doesn’t have it in six weeks he’s gonna take her as payment instead.

Tyler would save the world if he could. That’s a fight that lasts forever. And if there’s one thing he’s good at, it’s fighting. So if Maddie thinks she’s gonna deal with an insane drug lord on her own, she’s crazier than he is.

She’s got a debt she can’t pay. He’s got more money than he needs.
She’s not gonna fall for his charm. He’s gonna make sure that happens.

They’re destined to be together. Even if Maddie doesn’t know it yet.
Sometimes your soul mate isn’t who you’d choose, it’s who you need.

Good thing you don’t get to choose.

Holy shit – what did I just read!? And I mean that in the absolute best way possible! JA Huss and Johnathan McClain packed a serious punch in Angels Fall and I’m still reeling from the effects. Maddie and Tyler’s story had everything I look for in a good book; there was some steamy romance, intriguing twists, and trials that ultimately lead to unforgettable moments.

“It’s a soft kiss. A touching kiss. A forgiving kiss. And when we break apart, we are more together than ever.”

Tyler was great in Sin With Me, but he shone even brighter in this second novel of the series. He accepted his mistakes and really made an effort to fix things. I loved seeing that maturity and realization that he needed to get out of his own head. Furthermore, his inner monologues added such a dose of humor and lightheartedness to the novel, even in moments of distress. As a reader, I couldn’t help but giggle relentlessly and look forward to the chapters from his point of view. Furthermore, my admiration really grew for Maddie as well. She started to question her circumstances and open her eyes to the world around her. In many ways, I also think she developed more of a spine and started to really value her worth. It felt like she was morphing into a woman who knew what she wanted and would do anything to get it, which definitely makes me anxious for more!

“Me, battered and bloodied but still here. Her, without visible scars, but no less punctured and bruised. And also still here.”

As the two of these characters transformed as individuals, they also grew as a couple and it made me beyond giddy. I’m usually not one to read books from two different authors, but McClain and Huss are seamless in their transitions. There are two distinct voices, yet so complementary that it never feels like a disjointed read. With unforgettable characters, flawless writing, and a gasp-inducing ending that will leave you drooling for more, Angels Fall hit the trifecta of perfection. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

BOOK BLITZ & GIVEAWAY – Sin With Me by JA Huss & Johnathan McClain

Title – Sin With Me
Authors – JA Huss & Johnathan McClain
Publication Date – March 6, 2018
Series – Original Sin #1

Two broken people in a city fueled by sin.

Maddie Clayton isn’t looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true North these days—but at least she’s still standing.

The Military taught Tyler Bell about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters—but when it mattered most, he wasn’t.

She’s got a ticket straight to Hell. He’s already been there and back.
She needs to win. He just needs to stop fighting.

Some sins scar your soul so deeply, you’ll never be the same.
But this Devil in disguise might just be the angel he needs to forgive himself.

I’ve been a fan of JA Huss for years now, trusting her process and what she puts into readers’ hands. However, when I saw that she was teaming up with Johnathan McClain, I’m not going to lie – I was a tad bit apprehensive simply because I hadn’t read anything of his. Much to my surprise, Sin With Me was filled with everything I have come to love about her writing, and even just a little bit more. There were two distinct voices and styles, but somehow they blended together perfectly to deliver an amazing story.

“She is a fallen angel and I am sin itself.”

Maddie and Tyler are two very broken characters, trying to escape traumatic experiences in their past. For most of the novel, both personalities are merely existing; they are doing what they can to survive but not necessarily caring what happens. I really loved how the plot unfolded and getting to know both Maddie and Tyler as individuals. I could tell that each of the characters were written by different people, but it actually helped enhance my connection to each of them. They had distinct voices, mannerisms, and even inner thoughts, which allowed me to really appreciate both authors’ styles. Sin With Me was sexy at times, emotional at others, and really just contained the full package of everything I love in my novels.

“She is Eve, but I am not Adam. I am the serpent wrenching her out of Eden. And together, we are original sin.”

Though I have loved Huss for quite some time, it is clear that she is able to partner up with someone without losing her own voice. It could even be argued that it elevated the reading experience to another level entirely. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know both Maddie and Tyler and am incredibly anxious to see how their lives unravel in future novels. The writing was stellar, the characters were intriguing, and the pacing was perfect to keep readers wanting more. Mark my words, Huss & McClain are a duo to look out for in the future. I have a feeling that readers everywhere will be begging to sin with them; I know I certainly am!
