Synopsis

ROX
When I was six, Wran Belmont found me buried in snow and gave me a place to live.

He became my best friend.

When I was fifteen, I gave him all of me—only for him to abandon me.

Now, he’s back and expecting the lost, scarred girl he’s left behind. I’m not that girl anymore. And while I may still have secrets, it will not be as easy for him to retrieve them this time around.

WRAN
When I was eleven, my father lost his job and became a pathetic excuse for a father. A few months later I found Roxanna Raine buried in snow, barely hanging on to life.

Her father was the reason mine was an alcoholic, and I thought about letting her freeze to death.

One look in her eyes and she became my kryptonite. I swore I would get my revenge, though, even if it was on the fair-skinned beauty.

When I was nineteen, I left Rox without an explanation—broken-hearted and even more lost.

 Now, I’m back and I’ll do anything to make up for the stolen time.

The Lost and the Scarred is the first book in the Kingston City Limits series and tells the story of Rox and Wran!

The Lost and the Scarred is the first book I’ve read by T. Marie Alexander and I really liked it. I’m really glad that T. Marie Alexander messaged me about this book because it was so hard to put down! I wanted to know what was going to happen to our main characters and I’m glad that I read this book!

The Lost and the Scarred is about Rox and Wran, and I’m going to be blunt and say that they’re in a f*cked up relationship. This is not your average Romance story, it’s way darker and twisted. Rox and Wran have been through a lot, and it shows. Because of all the things Wran’s been through, he’s kind of a bully, even towards Rox. I have mixed feelings towards Wran, so I hope he’s going to change a bit!

The Lost and Scarred was such a good book and the characters were so different than I’m used to. This is definitely not a normal Romance story, and that’s not something negative! It makes the story so interesting and hard to put down. I really liked this book and I cannot wait to read the sequel!

The Lion Heart | Release day blitz

Title: The Lion Heart
Series: Rogue Academy #2
Author: Carrie Aarons
Release date: 15 September 2019

Synopsis

He’s supposed to be the ruler of this kingdom.
The prince poised to take his rightful place on the pitch.
Instead, he plays the jester, shunning his legacy.
Only I am privy to his lion heart.

Kingston Phillips is the heir to England’s football dynasty. The offspring of two of the world’s greatest players, the expectations set on his shoulders could crush the universe. But the golden-haired Adonis chooses to live his life as a game; a series of nightclubs, brawls, pranks and different kit chasers parading through his sheets.

I’m the last woman he should chase, and I’ve told him so. My cheeky mouth and icy demeanor guard the secret no one can learn. But when the Casanova I’ve been avoiding becomes the bloke next door, he quickly begins to thaw the frost around my heart. Kingston shows me the ferocious, loyal, protective side of himself that no one else gets to witness.

I begin to realize that he’s just as damaged as I am.
That as much as I try to deny it, we’re the same.
And … that might just be our undoing.

The Lion Heart is the second book in the Rogue Academy series and tells the story of Kingston and Poppy. Although this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. 

The Lion Heart was yet another amazing book by Carrie Aarons! I’m such a fan of Sports Romance and I loved the first book, The Second Coming! The Lion Heart was such a good sequel, and I couldn’t put this book down. I finished it in one sitting because it was just that good.

I really liked the characters, Kingston and Poppy, because they both have been through some stuff and they try to hide it. Their lives seem perfect, but they aren’t perfect at all… I love that Kingston is such a stubborn guy because he doesn’t give up when it comes to Poppy. Poppy seems like a bitch, but she’s such a good person. When they finally get to know each other, it’s hard not to fall in love…

The Lion Heart was such a good book and I love that Carrie Aarons writes Romance with some serious and hard topics. I really loved this book and I cannot wait to read the next one in the series!

Genre: Steamy Contemporary Romance Release date: 12 September 2019

Synopsis

She ran from a past that defined her. He ran from a secret that could destroy her. Thirteen years later, they run into each other. Can their love stand the test of time? 

When Claire Cunningham was five years old, she was taken.

She’s spent the rest of her life running from her past, from her pain … from that day. Fate brings Claire back to the small town of Clover Creek, Texas to help care for her gram.

The minute she bumps into Jayce Sterling, her high school sweetheart, Claire realizes some old flames never burn out-they burn hotter. The man in front of her now is so very different from the boy who walked away from her thirteen years ago. Being with Jayce would be so easy, so right.

There’s just one thing holding her back. Something she’s not ready to deal with yet. A secret she’d rather keep hidden from the judgmental eyes of a small town. But soon, she’ll find out she’s not the only one with secrets. Jayce has one of his own, and this one could cost him everything

Sterling is the first book in the Sweet Southern Heat series and tells the story of Claire and Jayce.

Sterling is the first book I’ve read by Delaney Foster and I really liked it! I love reading ‘small town’ and ‘second chance’ Romances so this was such a good read for me! It was really hard to put this book down because I enjoyed it so much.

I really liked Sterling because of the story and the characters. Claire and Jayce are amazing characters, they both have things they ran away from but fate brought them back together. I also really liked the double perspective, it makes you get to know the characters even better!

Sterling was such an enjoyable read and I cannot wait to read the other books in the Sweet Southern Heat series!
