Cover Reveal: Arrogant Devil by RS Grey

Are you ready for ARROGANT DEVIL? We are so excited to reveal the cover of this next release from R.S. Grey! Check it out below!
 

 
About ARROGANT DEVIL 
(available May 10th)

Everyone in Cedar Creek, Texas, knows Jack McNight is an arrogant devil. Physically, I get it: he’s tan and fit, with coal-black hair that’s clearly been scorched by hellfire. Oh, and his personality? It burns just as hot.

When I show up on the doorstep of Blue Stone Ranch, I’m run-down and rockin’ my last pair of underwear. I’m hoping for a savior, but instead, I find him.

My opinion of Jack is marred by a dismal first impression, but his opinion of me is tainted even before I arrive. He’s heard I’m a spoiled princess there to take advantage of his goodwill. To him, I’m more trouble than I’m worth.

Our button-pushing banter should get under my skin. His arrogance should be a major turn-off. Problem is, devils are known to offer their own form of temptation.

Every one of his steely glares sends a shiver down my spine.

Every steamy encounter leaves me reeling.

Sure, it could be the Texas heat messing with my head, but there’s no way I’ll survive the summer without silencing him with a kiss and wrestling him out of those Wranglers.

Who knows…going to bed with the devil might just be the salvation I’ve been looking for all along.

Book Review: Birthday Girl by Penelope Douglas

Birthday Girl
by Penelope Douglas
Release Date: April 17, 2018

JORDAN

He took me in when I had nowhere else to go.

He doesn’t use me, hurt me, or forget about me. He doesn’t treat me like I’m nothing, take me for granted, or make me feel unsafe. 

He remembers me, laughs with me, and looks at me. He listens to me, protects me, and sees me. I can feel his eyes on me over the breakfast table, and my heart pumps so hard when I hear him pull in the driveway after work. 

I have to stop this. It can’t happen. 

My sister once told me there are no good men, and if you find one, he’s probably unavailable. 

Only Pike Lawson isn’t the unavailable one. 

I am. 

PIKE

I took her in, because I thought I was helping.

She’d cook a few meals and clean up a little. It was an easy arrangement. 

As the days go by, though, it’s becoming anything but easy. I have to stop my mind from drifting to her and stop holding my breath every time I bump into her in the house. I can’t touch her, and I shouldn’t want to. 

The more I find my path crossing hers, though, the more she’s becoming a part of me. 

But we’re not free to give into this. She’s nineteen, and I’m thirty-eight. 

And her boyfriend’s father. 

Unfortunately, they both just moved into my house. 


The moment Penelope Douglas dropped the news that this book was coming out, I was DYING to get my hands on it. I didn't care that it wasn't the next book in the Corrupt series; it was a forbidden romance and I was ALL FOR IT. 

When Jordan and her boyfriend, Cole, can't afford their apartment anymore, they find themselves moving in with Cole's dad. The very man who makes Jordan feel cared for, cherished, desired. While they both know their feelings are wrong, it feels too good to not be right. 

I am always wary going into big age gap books because I hate when they're not done well (this one is 19 years). I have only read a handful of them that I've been all in for. Seeing as this is Penelope's book, I had no doubts that I would be OBSESSED with this relationship. Since it is a forbidden romance, seeing as Jordan is dating the son of the man she's actually attracted to, the romance was so slow burn and there was so much chemistry. I was DYING for Jordan or Pike to just finally make the first move and see if their chemistry was as explosive as they were feeling. 

The other aspect of this book that made the age gap okay for me was how the attraction grew and how the relationship progressed. Jordan and Pike's relationship was so realistic and they had real highs and lows that tested their relationship. Also, Pike never acted like the creepy older guy lusting after the teenager. He really saw Jordan as an equal, unless Jordan was playing with him and poked fun at his age, and Jordan was so mature for her age. They just balanced each other so well, so I wasn't bothered by their age difference at all. Jordan knew what it was like to have to work hard for a living and had to grow up fast in her own life, so I found myself not even realizing there was such a big age gap between them. 

Once again, Penelope Douglas absolutely nailed it with this sexy, emotional, and addicting forbidden romance. Unlike her most recent books, this one was just a romance between a guy and a girl who wanted to be together. It had a much lighter tone that what we've been getting and it was just the book I needed to become obsessed with. If you haven't yet, BUY BIRTHDAY GIRL. Everyone needs a man like Pike in their lives.

Genre: NA/Contemorary Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2018 Cover Designer: Leticia at RBA Designs




Lo
Moving to River’s Edge was supposed to be a fresh start.
Away from chaos. 
Away from bad influences and worse relationships. 
All I wanted was to give my little brother more of a chance than I ever had. 
It should’ve been simple. 
I didn’t count on my transgressions following me.
And I definitely didn’t count on meeting Dare.
Tall, tortured, and tattooed. 
A Lost Boy through and through. 
Falling for someone like him was asking for heartache. 
But I was a sucker for punishment. 

Dare
I had a routine. 
Eat, work, sleep, repeat, only ever doing the bare minimum to keep up appearances. 
I kept my circle small and my guard high. 
I spent years making sure I didn’t repeat the mistakes of my past, forming an impenetrable layer of ice around my heart. 
Then Logan showed up in my town, in my tattoo shop, testing my patience along with my self-control.
She was fire and I was ice.
I should’ve stayed away. 
But I had been cold for far too long.

Until one night when he demanded I get in his car so he could drive me home because he didn’t want me walking in the dark.
That was sort of how it all started with Rush.
And then little by little, some of the walls of this hardass man started to come down.
I never expected that the two of us, seemingly opposites from the outside, would grow so close.
I wasn't supposed to fall for the rebel heir, especially when he made it clear he didn’t want to cross the line with me.
As the temperature turned cooler, the nights became hotter. My summer became a lot more interesting—and complicated.
All good things must come to an end, right?
Except our ending was one I didn’t see coming.

Book Review: Gods and Monsters by Saffron A Kent

Gods and Monsters
by Saffron A Kent
Release Date: February 22, 2018
Source: Author
He was an artist. She was his muse.

To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil's spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster.

To twelve year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special.

Despite her family's warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn't.

Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

Because their love was worth the risk. Their love was the stuff of legend.

But the thing about legends is that they are cautionary tales. They are made of choices and mistakes. And for Abel and Evie, the artist and the muse, those mistakes come in the form of lights, camera, sex.


Even after some time has passed since I finished this book, I am still so conflicted over my feelings about this book. I was excited to read this forbidden romance from Saffron Kent, but it took a turn I definitely wasn't expecting. 

The moment Evie Hart sees Abel Adams get out of the truck at the house next door, she's enthralled. She can't stop thinking about the boy who is blonde and beautiful. She soon learns, though, that he is the result of a scandal that rocked the town years ago that no one has forgotten. But Evie finds herself drawn to Abel even more and the two are led down a path neither of them can leave. 

Starting out this book, I was sucked in. This town is super small and felt almost like a cult where they all disapproved of Abel, especially Evie's mom. Of course I loved the forbidden romance, but as soon as we got to the middle of the story when Evie and Abel were older, things took a turn that I was definitely NOT expecting. And I wasn't sure how I felt about it. I started to become really annoyed with Evie and Abel over the reasons behind their decision. I get that they were still pretty young and didn't really know any better, but I hated the reasons why they chose to do certain things they did. 

As the story went on, the tone of the story changed drastically and it was hard for me to finish the book. Like I said, I was annoyed with the reasons behind how the characters were acting and it was obvious that some characters were keeping secrets. It was frustrating how naive Evie was and I wanted her to wake up and see what was going on right in front of her eyes. 

If you can't tell, this book ended up being a frustrating read for me. While the characters kind of redeemed themselves for me by the end, I still could not forget how annoyed I was for a good majority of this book. I loved the beginning of this book when Abel and Evie were falling for each other, but it felt like an entirely different book when the halfway mark hit.
