"Every whisper, every breath, every kiss, and every word came from my gut. This is the book I'm most proud of." ~Penelope Douglas on Falling Away

As you very well should be Ms. Douglas! Simply said......Falling Away is ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!! 

Your readers wanted darker, you gave it. Your readers wanted more steam, you definitely gave that! Your readers also wanted Jax to find the one girl that could help erase his awful past....mission accomplished! 

This is not a story of darkness meets light. Both Jax and KC have pasts filled with secrets and deeper undertones than anyone realizes. The saying 'be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about' is so fitting for this story. 

There is so much more to KC than anyone realized when we met her in Bully. Gone is the perfect, somewhat self absorbed best friend of Tate. KC is now trying to navigate her future while being back in the small town she grew up in. All the while staying next door to the one guy she knows she shouldn't be around. 

Jax. Silently brooding, sweet, sexy Jax. On the outside he seems to have it all together, but beneath the surface he is anything but perfect. His pursuit and resistance of KC, the push and the pull, is exactly why I love him! 

There is such a true understanding of likeness between these two, that the 'meant to be' fits this couple perfectly! 

I so badly want to go in depth with the storyline but until the book is released I will refrain. 
I will say that the way this story is woven completely SHOCKED and impressed me so much!! If you are a huge fan of Bully like I am, you are going to LOVE and fall in love with this book! The progression of KC's character is amazing throughout. For an author to take a character that is not the most liked and transform her into one you're whole heartedly cheering for in the end is true talent and also one of the reasons she will always be one of my favorites!

CAMI'S REVIEW ~ DUSTY DELINQUENTS by Mary Elizabeth and Sarah Elizabeth

Dusty Delinquents is just as impressive as Dusty Innocents was for me! This is not a hearts and rainbows story, this is a story of two kids falling hopelessly in love while addiction and dependence turn their love into crazy love. 

While I rooted for them as a couple I still wanted Bliss to gain control and either help Dusty get his habit under control or show him how strong she was and leave him. Yes I know I'm contradicting myself but that's what this book does to you! 

A little FYI.... I read this while in Vegas for the book signing and even though there were entertainers and slot machines galore, I couldn't wait to get back and read more each evening, In fact I didn't even care about the gambling or shows. This was my show!!!

Your heart will bleed right along with Bliss as she maneuvers her way through Dusty's addiction and their dependence on one another. 

Not sure how I felt about the ending. Even though I needed that happy ending, I still felt that their ending is yours to conclude, which I also enjoyed. With that being said I would still like to see
more from this couple....(hint hint). ;) 

Their train wreck of a relationship and connection is so entrancing to read about and quite simply, a match made in Heaven.

5 'Crazie' good Stars and one of my favorite stories! ~Cami

OH.MY.GAWD!!! I am at a loss for words. I have been anxiously awaiting the release of this book and let me just say that Tijan has done it again!! She has knocked my socks off with this one.  I can't imagine how there can  only be one more book left...NOOOO!  One more book will not do it for me.  There is so much more to much more.

  I'm sitting here the day after I finished reading Fallen Fourth Down, and am like what the hell?  What did I just read? I can't imagine this series ending.  There is so much more story there.  I love the new characters that have been introduced...well not all of them :/  Please Tijan, we need more books.  I need to see where the future takes these characters.  I have to know. MORE! MORE!...PLEASE!!!

Fallen Fourth Down starts off with the big secret that Sam is carrying around.  Does he or doesn't he???... Is the big question!!! OH SHIT!!!  I am a basket case right now!!!

"It's a cancer, building in me, wondering if I might lose you one day." 

"No matter what path I'm on, all roads lead to him. They always will."

Mason is away at Cain University making new friends and missing Sam like crazy while Sam and Logan are still at Fallen Crest finishing up their Senior year of high school and missing Mason like crazy. Mason and Sam's separation was killer for me.  I wanted them together.  I was like get high school over with for Sam and Logan already and get them to Cain University to be with Mason. Like pronto!!!

"No matter what's going on inside you, I'm here. I always will be. I love you." 
~ Mason

Mason, as well as us, are introduced to new characters. Some you'll love and some you'll not so love. And ughh, did I mention that Marissa is attending Cain University...hmmm coincidence!!! Yeah right!!! I don't even want to get started on her...psycho bitty!! I can not stand her!! That's all she is getting from me.!! YEP, PSYCHO BITTY!!! 

Oh and Nate...let's just say he was on my bad side for the biggest majority of the book. It's gonna take some sucking up on his part to get back into my good graces. And, oh how I loved him in the last three books...but, NOT so much now!  I'm sure I may love him again, but he's got some major sucking up to do...just sayin'!!! 

Matteo has won my heart. I love his character.  He and Mason had immediate chemistry.  I liked him from his very first introduction.  I definitely can't wait to get to know him better.  Love him!!!   I love that Mason has him as a friend. He will be loyal no doubt there!!!

Fallen Fourth Down is full of drama, angst and suspense...I was on pins and needles the entire time. I did not want to put it down.  The the charts, the the charts...the chemistry between  Mason, Sam and the freaking charts!! The only way Tijan does it...she reels you in...then you are hooked, line and sinker!!!  

He was my life. He was my heart. I couldn't lose my heart.  ~Sam

I fell in love with Mason and Logan from the very first book and with each book, I fall more and more for them.  Mason and Logan are EPIC characters. No other characters will EVER come close to these two brothers.  They have so much chemistry and the love they have for one another is off the freaking charts!!  How can this series not be a movie?  How can this series not be a television series?  Without a doubt, the best series out there!!

"You, Sam. I love you. Only you. When I'm not with you, I survive. When I'm with you, I live." ~Mason

Kudos to my friend, Tijan. You have yourself another 5 Star book..The only way you know how to do it!!!

Hold onto your shorts kids because $#!+ just got real! This next installment in the Fallen Crest series is EXPLOSIVE! The angst, the drama, the fighting, the parties and the relationships new and old. It's all so exciting!! 

Things around Fallen Crest have changed drastically since Mason left for college. Sam is having a hard time trying to deal with life now that she knows how Logan feels about her. Not to mention the pressure of standing on her own at school and trying to figure out how to move forward while missing Mason. 

Mason is also finding it difficult being away from Sam. Dealing with college, a new roommate and team to get used to, and also the fact that Marissa has worked her way into his inner circle which he knows is going to complicate his life where Sam is concerned. Yes I said Marissa. Ugh! 

Take my word when I tell you to allow yourself plenty of uninterrupted time to read because each chapter ends with you HAVING to turn the page! There are so many surprises that I never saw coming but I can't reveal or spoil them. It's so good you'll need to experience them for yourself, especially if you are a big FC lover like myself!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. This is by far my favorite series! 

P.S.....The ending is in no way a cliffhanger but definitely leaves you wanting more! Enjoy!!!

I'll admit, while I was super excited for this sequel to Adriana and Vince's story, I did have some trepidation going into it. Like most sequels, Im always hoping they will continue to wield that magical power and keep me as intrigued as I was with the first book. I'm happy to say that Ms. Waltz did not disappoint! I was along for the intriguing thrill ride all the way to the end! 

Adriana thinks she and Vince have cleared the way and only have the future to look forward to now. But Vince knows differently. He knows the war with the rival family, the Rizzos can't carry on and they need to find a way to make peace. Only he doesn't realize it may cost him his future. 
When Adriana is approached by the Rizzos she has a choice to make. Work for them or risk both her mother and Vince's mother being killed. Oh and one other small detail.....break off the engagement with Vince and break his heart first. Yikes!! 

This is one of the best mafia romance stories I've read in a long time. 
It definitely left all the 'cheesiness' and stereotypes at the door. Even though it can be dark and sometimes disturbing, it has great angst, drama, romance, murder, lies and deceit. Everything you'd imagine a good mafia story to have. 

If you're a fan of dark romantic mafia stories this book is calling your name! Highly recommend!

 I was so excited to get my hands on this book after reading the blurb and being such a huge fan of Toni Aleo, I knew it would be good and boy was I right. 

Whiskey Prince is a sweet sweet love story that grabbed me from the start. It begins with Amberlyn losing her mother to cancer and her entire world crashing down.  Now, she is parentless because she had lost her father years ago and hasn't fully recovered from his death.

 Amberlyn didn't get to enjoy being young and carefree and get to experience all the joys of being a teenager because she had been the caregiver for her mother during her illness, leaving her inexperienced in the world. Her mom, knowing this,  left Amberlyn a letter asking her to fulfill three things for her. And in order to do this, she needed to move to Ireland with her aunt and uncle which is her father's hometown.

Amberlyn was reluctant but she honored her mother's wishes and off to Ireland she went.  She got a job working at her aunt and uncles pub along side her cousin, Fiona, who became a huge part of Amberlyn's life. They were like sisters.  I loved the chemistry these two had.

Amberlyn is really liking Ireland and she feels she made the right decision in moving there.  


 She sees him ;)  Declan O'Callaghan...The Whiskey Price of Ireland, the heir to one of the largest wine distilleries in the world. But...Declan has a problem you see, his dad wants him to get married and is pretty much giving him a ultimatum or the distilleries will go to his sisters fiance. That's the way it has been and that's the way his father wants it to continue to be.  Declan doesn't want to just marry someone to get what's rightfully his, he wants to find true love.

“I want a girl that loves me for me, not because I am the Whiskey Prince of Ireland.”

With the pressure on to find a wife, Declan has refused to settle and I love that about him. While fishing with his best friend, Kane, Declan sees Amberlyn from across the lake and is immediately drawn to her. He has this desire and need inside of him that he has to get to know her and he seeks out to do just that.

"I watch her for another minute as Kane chuckles beside me. I have the urge to know her…I want to know why she is here and not back in America. I want to know everything, but most of all, I want to find out what color her eyes are and get lost in them. I want to learn her name and then whisper before dropping my lips to hers. I want, no, I need, to know her." 

"I know this girl is special and at this moment, I feel more like a king than a prince. And she is my queen." 

Soon, Declan and Amberlyn get to know one another and start spending time together.Their feelings for one another can not be denied. Their chemistry is right on but there are obstacles and bumps in their path along the way. 

"I want to get lost in her kisses, I want to get tangled in the sheets, I want to feel her..."

Will Declan and Amberlyn be able to overcome those obstacles in their path? Or will those obstacles tear them a part for good?

I really liked this book but I did feel like it was missing something. I needed more. That's why I'm giving it 3.5 Stars. With that being said, it's still a good good read. I would recommend this book to everyone and I'm so glad I met Declan...Ahhh, swoon!! ;)

I give Whiskey Prince 3.5 Crazie Stars!!

"I'm loud, I'm proud and I like to bust balls in my spare time."

OMG! Willow Knox is my new fictional girl crush!

After finishing Finding Me I was SO pumped to figure out WTH was going on with Low and Tate!
For six long years, Low has been harboring a secret. Running from her past and lying to her closest friends and boyfriend Tate.
Now she has to choose to once again run, or stay and face the dangers (and I mean DANGERS) from her past. 

Willow is so badass, and with an attitude to match! She also possesses the skills to back up that attitude when fate and family come knocking., sexy, alpha Tate. He is so caring and patient. His love, devotion, and the lengths he goes to for Low are just.....ahhhhh!! 

I will say, that I had to ask myself how on earth Tate was not jealous of Low's friendship with Ace?! Dear god that man is HOT!! I swear, if I had a friend as hot as Ace, my boyfriend( hypothetically speaking of course since I'm married, lol ) would have to be jealous!

But rest assured ladies, Tate makes it known that Low is his woman and his alone! (Swoon) Gotta love those alpha males!

Like in my previous reviews of the Bad Boy series I am not posting any spoilers in the review. I can't do it!! S.K's books have so many surprises in them and keep you guessing until the very end!

Now, even though this can be read as a standalone I still HIGHLY recommend that you read the first two books in the series so you can get to know a little about Low and Tate, but mainly because they're just so damn good!

Without a doubt, I give Finding Us 5 "Crazie" good Stars!!!!

Finally!!! I finally found some time to reconnect with my main man Greyson! 

Everyone knows my love for Pamela Ann's writing style. I crave the angst she brings to the story and her characters always have a way of making me immediately fall in love with them. 

We now find Liv brokenhearted and back in Australia with Liam after attending the wedding of Grey and Edith. Liam is determined to get her back and trying to seduce her out of her loneliness. Liv does decide to go back for Christmas, but once there she is tortured by the intimacy of the newlywed couple. 

Of course Edith is her same manipulative evil self throughout the story and as much as I love Grey, he did piss me off a bit. 

What ensues is a love/hate relationship until a dramatic event causes Grey to realize how much Liv means to him.

Now, I was left with questions at the end and there may have been a certain someone I was hoping would get more backlash than they got. But with that being said, I loved the angst, I loved the writing style and I loved the story!

Pieces Of Us by Pamela Ann

Faithful by Louise Bay 4 "Crazie" good Stars!! 

What a great debut novel by author Louise Bay!

Leah Thompson has it all, a wealthy boyfriend that just proposed, a good job and great friends. So why is she feeling less than thrilled and looking up an old crush online? Not expecting more than a few harmless messages between friends Leah is surprised when Daniel responds flirtatiously. She soon finds herself looking forward to the messages more than she should and Daniel makes it clear he is interested in being more than just friends. Suddenly Leah has a fiancé showing no love and an old crush hot on her tail. Now this is where the fun begins!! Daniel Armatage is one hot, persistent piece of eye candy! Towards the beginning I quickly found myself asking "Charlie who?"

There is so much more to this story than meets the eye. Ol Charlie boy isn't exactly the type of guy he leads you to believe he is. Then throw into the mix Leah's friends and the new 'friendship' with Daniel. Yikes! It makes for a VERY interesting read with loads of hot and heart melting moments! Daniel is definitely my type of guy! Possessive and caring all wrapped up in one big sexy package! I did find the ending a bit rushed. But this is one book I would without a doubt recommend because once Daniel gets in your system he's a hard one to let go! I anxiously await Ms. Bay's next book Hopeful!!

KIM'S REVIEW ~ FIVE MILES by Lili St. Germain

My heart is's pounding so hard that I feel like it may jump out of my chest. It's ridiculous that this series is all I can think about right now.  Lili St. Germain, what have you done to me?  You've made me love raw and gritty.  Dang it!!! But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Five Miles starts off pretty much where  Six Brothers left off and Dornan is on the war path.  A path I would definitely stay away from...but not Julz.  Nope, she is high on adrenaline right now...Two brothers down and 4 brothers to go...and of course big daddy Dornan is on that list too.

Each novella just keeps getting better and better and right when you think you may be figuring it out, BAM...the author throws you for a loop...literally!!  

Dornan is going crazy with the loss of two of his sons.  He thinks he knows who's responsible so he is ready to strike.  Nothing is holding him back.

  This is where I'm on the edge of my seat and I can not put this book down.  I've devoured each one of these books. I'm starving and I can't stop my cravings.  DANG IT!

The stress seems to be getting to Julz. Don't get me wrong she is still bad-ass but I think everything that's been going down is starting to settle in with her and the reality of the situation is brutal. 

"It's almost like I'm dying...little by little; piece by piece.

Burnt out, shattered, breaking apart under the weight of my lies-and I still have five to go."

Her saving grace is Jase and Elliott, but at the same time, they're causing her more stess.  Without them though, I worry about Julz.  She is riding down a dark and dangerous road with no going back...So, how long can she keep this charade up? Is Jase on to her?  If so, will he be able to forgive her?

We get more of Elliott and Julz as well as Julz and Jase in this book.  And oh heart breaks for Julz, Elliott and my sweet sweet Jase.  

I feel liked I'm being chased and I'm about to get caught.  I'm a nervous wreck.  I must stop here because I'm ready to give away too much.  With it being a novella, it's hard not to give too much away. 

This book did not disappoint.  Each one keeps getting better and better. And the end of this book, will do a number on you.  Thank goodness Four Score is out...Not sure I could have waited.

I love this series...I love it hard.  I'm nervous about starting Four Score and I know once I'm finished, I'll have to wait until July for Three Years.  Ugh.

I definitely recommend this series.  

I give Five Miles 5 Crazie Stars!!! ~Kim

"To be wronged is nothing, unless you continue to remember it." ~Confucius

"I would never forget.  And so, for me, being wronged was everything." ~Sammi/Juliette

Oh my!!! I must say that Lili St. Germain has me hooked! Wow!!! This series is really twisted...Some serious messed up shit. But I can't get enough. I'm anxious, my hearts racing and I feel like I'm siting on pins and needles the entire time that I'm reading. I feel like I'm going to be sick at times, so I get up and walk away, but my mind is constantly thinking of this dang book and I have to get right back to reading. So I'm I twisted? HECK YES, I AM! 

There isn't a whole lot I can say without giving too much away, so this review is going to be hard. But if you loved Seven Sons, OMG...You're really going to love Six Brothers. I was worried about how Sammi was going to pull off  her next revenge plot without causing suspicion on her...But dang it, she did it and she did it good.  Brilliance...pure brilliance!!!

"Some people would call me a whore. A girl who sold her soul to the devil. Who let him inside her, with no remorse. Who danced with the monster who destroyed everything. To those people, I say only this: I didn’t have to sell Dornan Ross my soul. He already owned it. And once I’ve killed him, maybe I can get it back."

~Meet Dornan Ross~

Dornan Ross is a MONSTER...he's an evil evil man who appears to be falling in love with Sammi.  But even love doesn't keep him from harming her. I'm not sure if he would ever harm any of his son's, because his love for them seems genuine and unconditional.  He  takes their death hard like any parent would. But he wouldn't blink an eye to slit the throat of a woman he may love, especially if she betrays him.  And Sammi got another little taste of what that monster will do. He is one sick man!!! I'm a nervous wreck the entire time Sammi is in his presence. 

"You'd never betray me, would you, Sammi?"

"Never," I lie.

Then we have Jase...Oh how I love him!

We get a little taste of the love that Jase and Sammi once shared and my heart breaks for him...for her.  It's getting harder and harder the more she is around him to control her feelings for him...he's still the man she once loved...still loves. But she knows in order to pull off her plans of revenge on Dornan and his son's that she can't let herself go there. And, what if she does go there and confesses all to Jase...would he protect her or would he warn his father? I know in my heart that he would protect her.  He loathes his father and least I hope he does.

The more we get to know Jase, the more I love him.  He's nothing like his evil father and brothers.  NOTHING!!  

“She was my girl,” he says, and I can feel myself breaking apart inside under the weight of his words. “She was my everything.”

This book was just as raw, gritty and gruesome as the first book. The suspense is really getting to me.  I can't wait to see how this all plays out.  Being in Sammi's head is WHACKED!!! It's like watching a movie...watching it all play out. Her plotting is brilliant...pure genius. 

Two down. Five to go.

and the story continues...

I give Six Brothers 5 Crazie Stars!!! ~Kim

KIM'S REVIEW ~ SEVEN SONS by Lili St. Geramin

Confucius said, “Before embarking upon a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”

I love to read  reviews from other people. So, when I saw that a certain reviewer that has similar taste as me had highly recommended this series, I was right on it...Thank you Kawehi Reviews!!

As soon as I read the synopsis of Seven Sons, I knew I had to read it.  I've been becoming a fan of MC books lately and this one was like WOAH!!! 

With her innocence stolen at the age of fifteen, skin branded, thought for dead and her father murdered, Juliette Portland sets out to seek revenge on the parties responsible.

"Today my name is Juliette Portland, but tomorrow I will wake up as someone else entirely. Someone who will bring Dornan Ross and the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club to their knees."

 At the age of 21, Juliette, now known as Sammi, is out for blood and out for revenge against the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club who are responsible for her father's death and her loss of innocence. 

Who the heck can blame her!!!

"I shed a tear because she is about to die, six years after she cheated death."

She goes under the knife to change her appearance and to remove the scars that once branded her.  

Sammi now finds herself in a situation that in order to seek redemption and raise havoc upon Dornan Ross and his seven sons, she has to live in hell all over again.

"What was born as fear and grief has long since blossomed into hatred and rage."

Sammi wasn't prepared for the liking that Dornan Ross took with her.  She went to him asking for a job and instead of a job, he want's her for himself.  He puts her up in the clubhouse which is exactly want she wanted, but at what price?  Is she willing to sleep with the enemy to seek out the ultimate revenge? Is she willing to live in hell to seek redemption?  

What Sammi wasn't expecting was to come face to face with Jace, Dornan's youngest son...her friend and first love.  Seeing him and being back in that strip club brings back memories of that horrific night where she was gang raped by his father and six brothers. Jace refused to participate that night before she blacked out so I'm assuming he did not rape her. Please god, I hope not!!!

"You remind me of a girl I used to know,” he says quietly, looking away."

Her plan is set in motion, she is now IN and has Dornan's complete attention. Carrying out her plan is not going to be easy and she knows it.  Not only does she have to sleep with Dornan so she doesn't blow her cover, she comes face to face with her mother who sold her out years ago for drugs.  No one recognizes her and they wouldn't because she is presumed dead and has had a complete total makeover with a body they can't resist.

Her plan is to take them out one by one.  Nothing is holding her back.  She is ready to strike and she is ready to strike now!!!


This novella is by no means a romantic least not at this point, being the  first book in the series.  It's down right raw and dirty.  There is a hint of a potential romance between Sammi and Jace or possibly between Sammi and Elliott, who happens to be the cop who saved her life.  And, I have to say I love them both!!!

"After the third time, he left. Because I was darkness, and he was sinking inside that darkness, and every time he tried to pull me out, I’d hold him under with me."

The first three years after her world was ripped apart, Elliott and Sammi became close...very close.  He fell in love with her but her demons from the past put a strain on their relationship and he knew there was nothing he could do to help her so he left. 

 Three years later she is back and there is definitely chemistry there.  I also feel the chemistry between her and Jase.  I'm hoping for a Sammi/Jase HEA but I'm also loving me some Elliott.  We'll just have to wait and see where Lili St. Geramin takes us.  A journey I'm so ready to take.

Seven Sons is a RAW...DIRTY...SUSPENSEFUL read that will keep you on the edge of your seat craving more. If you are looking for romance, this is not the book for you...if you are looking for downright raw an gritty...then this is the book for you.  I'm hoping the romance will come with the future novella's.

  I have to say that I'm a sucker for romance.  Bring me raw and grittiness with some hot romance and I'm totally on board. I read this novella so fast...Now I'm ready for more.

So, bring on Six Brothers and thank goodness it's already out.  I'm stoked to get started with the 2nd book in this series!!!  Yikes ;)

I give Seven Sons 4.5 Crazie Stars!!! ~Kim
