Old hurt runs deep…

After she left, I was given a second chance at life thanks to my savior and adoptive father. A chance I refused to waste. Determined to be invincible, I became a true fighter in every sense of the word. Nothing and no one would get in my way.

Not even the guy who sat behind me in class.

Zack Graves had the entire world in his hands. A promising hockey career and the confidence and gorgeous looks that had every girl throwing themselves at his feet.

Except me. I was only too happy to wipe the sexy smirk off his face while tossing him on his smug ass.

And he kept coming back for more.

I kept my scars hidden, until Zack managed to trace the lines straight to a place I fought to keep guarded.

Zack was fighting his own immortality, his own scars becoming visible the closer we got. He challenged my guard at every turn forcing me to fight harder, only to realize he would be my undoing.

But some wounds refuse to heal.

Release Blitz: Block Shot by Kennedy Ryan

“Kennedy Ryan’s writing continues to amaze and inspire. She is a genius wordsmith and a prose poet. And in Banner Morales, she has created the perfect heroine for this day and age. Don’t miss this read. It’s everything.”
Emma Scott, Bestselling Author

Block Shot, Kennedy Ryan’s enemies-to-lovers, second-chance standalone romance is LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!

KRBlockShotBookCover5x8_MEDIUM.jpg

JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

Her anger is…arousing.

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me…well, you know.

If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.

I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.

I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”

They say even rich men don’t always get what they want,

but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?

She doesn’t even know how to play.

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.

I’ve moved on.

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

Anything they can do, I have done better.

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.

But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.

“Dirty Headlines is a fantastic enemies to lovers office romance with a perfect filthy asshole hero that I wish I’d written myself.” – Laurelin Paige, New York Times bestselling author

Dirty Headlines, an all-new sexy, enemies-to-lovers romance from bestselling author L.J. Shen is LIVE!

LJSDirtyHeadlinesBookCover6x9_BW_324

Célian Laurent.

Manhattan royalty.

Notorious playboy.

Heir to a media empire.

…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.

I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.

Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.

But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.

Brooklyn girl.

Infamously quirky.

Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.

He knows it.

So do I.

Every day in the newsroom is a battle.

Every night in his bed, war.

But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.

Release Blitz + Review: Summer Seduction by Rachel Van Dyken

Summer Seduction by Rachel Van Dyken
Series: Cruel Summer #2
Publication Date: August 30, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

I wanted revenge.

And I got it in the best way possible.

Ray has always driven me insane, now that we’re older, all I want is to make her feel the pain she put me through for four years.

And then suddenly, everything shifts and I realize I just want her,

It’s bad enough that I’m the camp director — her boss.

Our love is equal to our hate for one another and the burning tension between us refuses to relent. If anything it’s gotten worse.

I push her.

She pushes back.

Passion, whether it be born of love or hate — is a powerful beast, one I’m refusing to tame.

Marlo and Ray’s story continues…

 What the hell did I just read?!?! 

If you read my review for the first book in the series, Summer Heat, then you know that I started off that review saying pretty much the same thing I did above. That is because this series has wrecked me emotionally, especially after the heart-wrenching cliffhanger this second book ended on. Rachel Van Dyken was cruel ending the first book the way she did, but now she is down right evil after this ending. This is your warning; prepare yourself because I still haven’t recovered.

So now that that that’s out of the way, let’s get on to the review.

Summer Seduction picks up right where Summer Heat left off and things are rocky between Marlo and Ray. Marlo realizes he made a mistake trying to get his revenge on Ray. His feelings towards her ultimately outweigh his need to get even, and so he tries to mend things between them. But, it isn’t that simple. Marlo and Ray’s relationship is full of angst and passion, stemming from their hate/love for one another that began back in high school. The tension has slowly been building and as a result, the two finally come together both physically as well as emotionally.

I really liked how Marlo and Ray dealt with their past and the issues surrounding it in this book. What started out physical, once the tension between them hit a breaking point, soon turned into a emotionally charged exchange where all their thoughts and feelings were laid out on the table, or in this case a bed, for each other to process. It was so wonderful to see them come together and reach a place of happiness with one another. Major tugging-at-heartstrings moment.

Like in my last review, I’m not going to go too much into what happens. One, because this is the second book and two, because I firmly believe going into these books as blind as possible will make your reading experience that much better. What I will say is that I usually have a hard time connecting with the couple when it is a second chance romance because I feel like I’m missing something since I didn’t get to see their beginning. This is 100% not the case with Marlo and Ray. The connection between them is obvious from page one, but the added flashbacks throughout this and the first book really allow you to believe that their feelings for one another are as real as they were in the past.

Summer Seduction was just as amazing as the first book. If you are looking for a quick summer romance to end your summer with that is both angst and emotional, then check out the Cruel Summer series!

Release Blitz/Review: Summer Heat by Rachel Van Dyken

Summer Heat by Rachel Van Dyken
Series: Cruel Summer #1
Publication Date: August 2, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance

SummerHeat_eBook_HighRes (1)


 Spoiled Princess is what he used to call me.

We were an inferno of hate and passion wound up with a dash of chaos.

For four years I watched him mow my lawn.

For four years I watched my friends make fun of him.

For four years I hated myself for wanting him, but even more for the way I treated him.

And then I had him.

For one night, we put all labels away and I spent the best night of my life in his arms.

Then the next day, with my secret night under lock and key, I looked the other way while my friends shamed him.

But now the jokes on me, because the scrawny lawn boy who I secretly loved from afar is now the director of Hollywood’s most exclusive summer camp.

And I’m on his staff.

Now it’s his turn to punish me.

His turn to make me pay.

His turn to take his revenge after years of humiliation.

He’s no longer a boy you can ridicule.

But a college graduate who can have any woman he wants.

I want him to look at me the way he did that one night we had together, but right now the look in his eyes tells me he’s going to enjoy having me under him for two straight months.

I don’t know where his hatred ends, his passion begins.

All I know is he wants revenge.

And I’m his lucky target.

Holy Crap! What did I just read?!?!

I had a feeling this book was going to be good after reading the synopsis. What I didn’t know was how much it was going to suck me in to the point that I was a mess of emotions when I got to the end. (P.S. There is a cliffhanger and it almost killed me 😭)

“I watched the princess in her glittery tower. My eyes burned with hatred, my anger was barely in check as I pushed the mower back and forth, back and forth.”

As you might have guessed from that quote, this story is no fairytale. Marlon is far from a prince seeing as he would rather see Ray De Lato’s life go up in flames than sweep her off her feet. His hatred towards Ray begins in high school after enduring the wrath of her and her friends. Marlon’s only hope is to get THE scholarship that would help him move on from his life of being the foster kid who mows the princess’s lawn. That is until Ray gets the scholarship, thus derailing his plans. Little did he know that four years later, the tables would turn in his favor.

“Ray and I? The princess and the pauper?
Unlikely.
I think we’d rather kill each other.”

If you are a fan of angst, strap yourself in because there is a ton of it. The prologue gives you a little taste from Marlon’s POV and then it just builds and builds and builds. And I loved every second of it. It is a hate-to-love romance in its truest form. Ray is just looking to survive the summer in hopes it will help in launching her acting career while Marlon wants nothing but to get revenge, even if certain feelings are starting to re-surface. Even as the sexual tension between these too continued to build, thanks to a few flashbacks sprinkled throughout, you are also able to see that once upon a time Marlon and Ray no where near hated one another.

Of course, it is only the beginning of the summer for these two. While I was not a fan of how this book ended, mainly because I did not want it to end, I can’t wait to see what happens next.

5 stars
