Still a Noob

If you’ve come across my site which was more than likely while scrolling or on accident then bear with me as I am still a noob. My site is not fancy or overly creative at this point. I am new to blogging in general and am definitely new to WordPress. I am trying to take some time to learn different things while also still putting some content on here. If you couldn’t tell by the blog title, I love reading. So most of my posts will be teasers, excerpts, cover reveals, and discussions of posts of my thoughts on some of my favorite authors and books. I read basically only dark romance so that will be the content of most of the books I write about. I also love makeup. I am by no means a makeup artist but do enjoy playing with different looks. I have an obsession with eye palettes and lip products so I will share some of those things in here as well. Please feel free to comment or share your thoughts on any of my posts. Again, bear with me as it will get better with time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Teaser Tuesday- Pt 2 Detonation

Leo POV: ๏”ฅ
Lana, for all of her sarcastic jabs and constant banter, is beautifully broken, trying to not let her inner flame be consumed by the darkness of what life is, a feeling I know all too well.  After all sheโ€™s been through, sometimes when she thinks nobody is watching, I see the fire in her eyes dim, when the shadows creep in.
I think that is what has always drawn me to her, what makes me certain weโ€™re forever meant to be entwined. So that we may sit in the darkness together when weโ€™re unable to find a way out. I want to be the flame that lights the way for her.

I am so excited for something new from Ramzi! I haven’t read anything by Veronica Eden yet so that’s also new and exciting. I usually don’t read Christmas books and am not much of a Christmas movie watcher either so this will literally be just a whole new experience for me!

R Holmes- new to me author that I LOVE

Okay! I seen a lot of posts about Misfit by R Holmes towards the end of August. Decided I had to read it. I DEVOURED it! It was so so good! Then I had to see what else R Holmes (or Ramzi) wrote.

Misfit is a dirty talking hired “problem solver.” He solves problems for some politicians and motorcycle clubs…typically by torturing and/or murdering people to get information or make problems go away. He works very closely with Elijah who is President of an MC. Misfit is not part of the MC but does jobs for Elijah, they have a good relationship. One night leaving a meeting, he hears some sounds in an alley. He finds a woman almost beaten to death and something tells him to save her. Once she’s healed he takes her with him trying to figure out who would want to hurt her like that. Then Elijah’s daughter is taken by rivals. Then Misfit’s girl goes missing. He has to find them both and save them. He had never had a relationship and this was why, with his work, no one would understand what he did and he felt having a woman he cared about would give him a weakness. He couldn’t resist her and the chemistry they have is undeniable. They have super hot sex too which is always a plus. I don’t want to give anything away but know there’s a lot of action, decent amount of sex, some romance, killing, kidnapping, and torturing. Basically everything you want from an MC type of dark romance book. I loved it so much!

After Misfit, I had to read more of Ramzi. So I read The Beginning of the End. This is a softer romance with still some dark themes. It is a second chance romance. Ambrey and Grey had an epic romance when they were younger. Unfortunately something happened and he ended up serving time in prison. She ended up leaving home. Now her parents have died, she has been offered a job, and she’s back home. Her and Grey run in to each other again. She hates him for leaving her and he hates her for giving up on him. There’s so much that both of them don’t know about each other and what really happened those years ago. They have this push and pull but neither wants to give in for fear of being hurt again. There’s so many unanswered questions that need settled first. Check this book out to see what happens. Theres some dark themes around Grey’s daughter &her drug addict mother throughout the story line as well. I loved their dynamic and how they worked it out. Great great second chance romance that’s lighter than I usually pick.

Okay, and after these two books I absolutely love Ramzi so much that when she opened her street team, I applied and I was accepted. So this was definitely a highlight from the past month or so after dealing with my mental heal rn. I am so excited to be on her team and am looking forward to more great books from her! Stay tuned as theres a couple in the works right now &I can’t wait to share with you all!

Sorry for being MIA

When I started this blog, I was so excited to have it to share all the books and authors I love along with makeup I love. I had goals if having several posts a week.

Unfortunately, last month I ended up really sick. So I’m going to be completely honest with you all. First, Thanks for taking the time to read my posts or subscribe if you are. So I ended up really sick in August. I never go to the doctor because waiting at the doctor gives me anxiety and I get in my head and am positive that they will tell me I’m dying. Well, I really felt like I was dying when I got sick. I ended up in urgent care 3 times and the emergency room once within 3 or 4 days. I lost a week. I was in and out of sleep and consciousness. I was diagnosed with a stomach virus and severe anxiety and major depressive disorder with a current minor episode. I literally couldn’t even lay down and sleep peacefully without waking up with my chest hurting and tight and feeling like I couldn’t breathe. So I was put on medication for it. The medication is helpful. But for a week or so after I couldnt focus on reading I had no interest.

I’m back now! I’m going to try and share a bunch of things with you all this week. I have read several great books this month. I am excited to share them with you all. Also, it is fall time which is my favorite time. I love chilly weather, hoodies, hot drinks, and scary movies. Halloween is my favorite season. Everyday I am working on bettering myself and relaxing. I do have a primary physician now as well and I have not had one of those in 5 or 6 years. I promised myself I would start taking better care of myself. So I am. This year has been one massive shit show and I don’t want to add to it. Love you all! I’ll post more later for you!

Desolation- PNR RH by RL Caulder

Desolation is a paranormal reverse harem by new author RL Caulder.

The FMC is a witty, smart mouthed, take no shit woman with a tragic backstory.

Lana has grown up in a foster home with the five men of her harem. They have shared a home, mother, and life for most of her life. Somewhere along the way, the feelings grew and developed and are now stronger than ever.

The men have talked by themselves and decided they want to tell her how they feel and are willing to share her. They all feel that pull and connection.

However, all around them, the world is falling apart with natural disasters and desolation everywhere. They suffer an extreme loss fairly early in the book which may be the traumatic event that causes their powers to appear along with their age.

Turns out, they’re from another realm, this is not their first life, and they are all soul mates which explains the deep pull they feel. Lana is warned that there is a dark fae around that wants to harm her and her boys but Lana has to figure out who it is on her own.

Each character accepts their powers and the news differently. They each grow and develop along with their love in their own ways. They are all training hard and preparing for battle.

The shocking twist and revelations through the end of the book left me speechless and wanting more. Book two is coming soon and I can’t wait to see what Lana and her men do!

She left almost a year ago without giving me a moment to explain myself.
A lot has happened since then,
and as weโ€™re about to find out,
that shit show of a summer is going to be the least of our problems.
She set fire to my life back then, igniting my tired soul.
Now sheโ€™s back looking better than ever and our fire still burns.

Everything in Beacon seems different.
A lot has happened since I hightailed it out of here
after catching Palmer in a lip lock with his exโ€”

and I know Iโ€™ll need to pull out all the stops.
