The Synopsis:

Tristan Lopez is loyal to his brothers. He doesn’t really have a choice, born into a gang that has a chokehold on every kid that roams its streets. He gave his life to them willingly, knowing if he did then one day this kingdom, led by boys drunk with power and ruled by fear, would all be his.

He was loyal through it all. Loyal when prison took his dad away. Loyal when his face was touched by the cold metal of the rival gang’s gun. Loyal even though his mom begged him to run the moment she returned home from rehab.

He thought about becoming someone else. It was hard not to crave the life of a regular 17-year-old. It’s the only reason he stayed in school—to pretend. But he always fell back in line.

Loyal.

Riley Rojas didn’t belong in Tristan’s real world. She should have only been part of the fantasy, one of the many faces he got to pretend with amidst rows of metal chairs and desks and whiteboards with assignments. But there she was, moving boxes from the back of an old pick-up into a house Tristan had shot up on a dare with his friends only a few months before.

Tall enough to look him in the eyes and strong enough to fill his shadow, Riley took up space on his streets, her loud mouth fearless in the face of the gang leaders who terrified everyone else. She pushed Tristan around on the hard court, and she balled better than his friends—better than him sometimes. She challenged him. She needed him. He liked it. And when her pale blue eyes stared into his, he quit wanting to pretend.

He couldn’t ask her to leave because she’d only dig her heels in deeper. He couldn’t ask because he didn’t want her to go. She was blurring his lines. She was testing his loyalty.

He was falling in love.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘CRY BABY’ by Ginger Scott:

“Cry Baby” is the latest novel by author Ginger Scott. This story takes readers on a journey through the rougher “part of town” while letting us know things aren’t always what they seem. Even though the main male character, Tristan, is in a gang, he does not fit the stereotype of what a violent, heartless gangerbanger would be. Cry Baby offers emotional moments and a tragically beautiful story-line where you will hope ends right for these characters. But it’s not always the case. “Cry Baby” is written from the two P.O.V.’s (point of views) from Tristan Lopez and Riley Rojas.

Tristan Lopez has been a member of a gang in his neighborhood since he was about ten. Coming from the neighborhood he was born into, there wasn’t much choice. It was either the gang or possibly a short life. Dub Lewis, the leader of the gang, gave Tristan the nickname “Cry Baby” when he took him under his wing. Tristan’s dad was best friends with Dub and co-founder of the “Fifty-seven” gang, but he ended up getting locked up thanks to his bad choices and loyalty to gang life. The story continues when Tristan is seventeen and he is completely entrenched into the gang life with nothing else but the twisted sense of loyalty to the dangerous life guiding him.

Riley Rojas is new to the neighborhood. Her and her single father move in, but Riley is left with the responsibility of moving things in on her own since her dad has to work and her mom is gone. She comes across a guy walking by who looks to be around her same age. She asks him for help to move some of the heavier items on the back of her old pick up truck. His name is Tristan. He hesitantly helps her move the stuff, but that’s as far as the “Welcome to the neighborhood” goes.

Once they find themselves at the neighborhood basketball court, all bets are off. Tristan returns to his reality and Riley learns quick that his reality does not include welcoming the new girl who he thinks doesn’t belong there. Tristan must either choose to solely follow down his dark and destructive path or choose to take on a new responsibility at school. He finds himself struggling to keep up his loyalty to the gang and that could put him in danger. His best friend has yet to be accepted, and unfortunately, Tristan finds himself struggling to keep his best friend safe as things go from bad to worse.

If Tristan’s loyalty comes into question, this could mean trouble. Where will his loyalty lie: with his gang and Dubs, or to his new school responsibility that could help both him and and Riley? As the reader, you’ll want to root for Riley and Tristan as individuals, facing the hardest parts of their lives, but also you’ll root for their friendship or whatever they may share. I highly recommend this for those who can enjoy a young adult novel that gives you imperfect characters who are perfect together. Add this to your list and grab your copy. It’s worth the read! ❤

A Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review: EL PECADOR by M. ROBINSON.

Book Review! A Blogging Reader’s Review after reading ‘El Pecador’ (Saint-Sinner Series – Book #2) by M. Robinson.

Title: EL PECADOR
Author: M. Robinson
Series: Saint-Sinner Series – Book #2
Publishing date: January 2018

The Synopsis for ‘El Pecador’ :

Book two of a two book series. El Santo (Book one) available now.

FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON

So here you are…
Turning the pages, opening the next chapters of my life—wanting to know the next truths of my sins. As if the first half of my life wasn’t enough.
You. Need. More.
You want my redemption.
My heart. My soul.
Your happily ever after…
You. Want. Answers.
And I will grant you the very first one you’re dying to know.

Why did I leave her?

So go ahead.
Turn the page.
I dare you.

You just might not like the answer.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

 

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘EL PECADOR’:

“El Pecador” is the part 2 of the “El Santo” novel by author M. Robinson. This novel continues Amira and Damien’s story which is a dark romance with plenty of suspense to fill the need. This riveting story will give you the satisfaction you seek. There are moments that will make you think you know how it will go, and you’ll quickly be surprised by these dangerously exicting twists and turns. El Pecador is written from the two main character’s P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Damien “El Santo” Montero and Amira.

Amira and Damien must take separate twisted, heartbreaking, and unpredictable paths in their lives. Damien finds himself taking a journey where he is faced with a need to find closure and a sense of peace in the midst of the madness of his life. He takes on a new lifestyle, in some ways, when you relocates to the U.S. In some ways the story makes a full circle, and in other ways, it gives these characters a fresh new start that makes his life unpredictable yet satisfying to the reader.

El Pecador is a riveting story about a man who is far from a saint and who has past he can never truly escape. Will Amira ever be back in Damien’s life or is their enthralling story over? This emotionally charged novel makes these characters deal with challenges they must face with and overcome no matter the consequences. Will they be able to overcome their pasts? Will they survive where their lives have taken them and the dangers that lurk? Who will die? And can love outshine even the darkest moments for these two lost souls? As a reader, you’ll get to see who they make peace with and what secrets are uncovered.

This story was filled with so many exciting twists and turns and left me feeling completely satisfied by the end. I adore how the story for Damien and Amira ends perfectly, but I also am thrilled with how the story sets things up in a little teasing way for M. Robinson’s next novel(standalone) called “Lost Boy.” I recommend this intense novel. Grab your copies of this 2 part series today!<3

Anti-Stepbrother 1

Synopsis for ANTI-STEPBROTHER’:

He told me to ‘settle, girl.’
He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.

He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.

Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?

Standalone.

My ‘Blogging Readers Review’ after reading ‘Anti-Stepbrother’:

“Anti-Stepbrother” is definitely not your run-of-the-mill stepbrother love interest kind of story. Author Tijan brings an entertaining story that doesn’t hold back on delivering what it is intended to give readers: The Satisfaction of a great story. This exciting novel comes from the New Adult and Romance genres and truly does not fall short in the romance department. “Anti-Stepbrother” has been written from the two main characters P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Summer Stoltz and Caden Banks.

Summer Stoltz is thrust into an instant new family when her father falls quickly for Sheila Matthews, the mother of the most popular boy at her high school, Kevin Matthews. Not only did he quickly become her attractive new stepbrother, but he had also been Summer’s huge crush. Her mother passed away from cancer, making her father’s speedy relationship become the talk of the town. When her graduation day arrived, a moment is shared with Summer and Kevin, causing her to have stronger feelings for him. But are the feelings mutual?

Caden Banks is tall, handsome, tattooed, and doesn’t like to partake in the typical frat-party lifestyle even though that is a large part of his current situation. He’s usually broody. His fraternity brothers respect him and most female classmates have a crush on him.  Most of his peers don’t know that Caden and his brother Marcus carry a secret that that their parents seem in denial about while Caden seems to bear the majority of the weight that exists from their family secret. It wasn’t his initial choice in life but no matter how dysfunctional his family is in some ways, he chooses to carry extra responsibilities. When Caden and Summer first meet, it’s not with sweet words or flirtatious innuendo. None of that was even a thought at all. Summer and Caden will find that life tends to throw necessary surprises into your life when you may least expect it.

When Summer begins college, she learns so much more about love, overcoming disappointments, healing from tragedy, and she learns much more about herself. “Anti-Stepbrother” is a swirl of moments that are fun, touching, engaging, and enjoyable all blended together. The characters are wonderful and easy to get drawn into their lives because of their satisfying differences. Summer’s silly wit and random humor at times, was delightful and matched well for a character like Caden, who at times had moments in his life to be moody about. It made for a believable growth between the two characters and why they would begin to have an attraction for each other. And then you had the wrench in their plans by the name of Kevin. I recommend this for readers who enjoy a story about young adults growing into who they are while dealing with love, heartbreak, and life’s uncertainties. Check this one out if you’re looking for a great story to read next. 🙂

Healing Eden 1 book 2

The Synopsis:

Nothing good grows in the shadow of secrets.

A reluctant warrior in a rebellion he abhors, Reese Theron has buckled beneath blackmail to keep the circumstances of his birth on lockdown. He’s lost everything that counts—the right to fight for his king, the trust of his best friend, and any hope for a family of his own. Death seems preferable, until Galena Shantos meets him at his fateful crossroads and saves his life.

Galena’s loyalty to her brother, the king, is absolute. Healing his warriors on the sidelines of war, she’s witnessed too many rebellion atrocities to be swayed for mercy. Yet something about Reese blurs the lines of allegiance, the call to her heart raw and primitive.

When Reese ends up a prisoner of war, he’s visited by a mysterious being of another race and learns he’s the linchpin in a battle between good and evil. The lovers will face choices—Galena between family loyalty and championing Reese’s cause, and Reese between keeping his shameful secret, and saving all races by leading the darkest of his kind to redemption—starting with his own confession.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘HEALING EDEN (Eden Series book #2)’:

***WARNING: Possible SPOILERS if you haven’t read the previous Novel of the Eden Series.***

‘Healing Eden’ is the second novel of the Eden Series and continues to blossom into an intricate and enchanting story-line. This novel falls into the Paranormal and Fantasy genres and delivers more than just those aspects. This novel has been written in the multiple character P.O.V.’s(point of views) from Reese Theron, Galena Shantos, Eryx Shantos, and Maxis Steysis.

Reese Theron once trained and fought alongside the Myren kind, to protect and serve under the king/Malran but then he found himself fighting alongside the Lomos rebels. He was now viewed as a traitor and a defector. Very few know his true background and who his brother is. When he comes across a beautiful woman that he remembers from before he turned his back on the Myrens, Galena, he feels a pull toward her that he can’t explain. Will he ever get the chance to be with her or is his betrayal going to be his doom?

Galena Shantos tried to heal as many as she could on the night of the battle between the Myren and the rebels, but so many have died. She had no idea that someone else was watching her until he came out of hiding. When the man watching her gets attacked, for some strange reason she feels the urge to protect and heal this man named Reese. The only problem is that he is a fighter from the enemy side. Galena finds herself torn between loyalty to her family and loyalty to the feelings that her heart won’t allow her to deny.

Maxis Steysis will do whatever it takes to destroy the Myrens, bring down their king Eryx, and rule with his Lomos rebellion set on enslaving humans. He has a connection with Reese Theron as he had with the Phybe, and Maxis hopes to use it to kill his stratego Reese but he’s been captured by his enemy. Will Maxis bring down the Myren kind? What will Reese do and who will he show his personal loyalty to? Will Galena effect his views or will he always remain tied to Maxis after betraying Ramsey and the Myren?

Will Eryx, the leader(malran) of the Myren, help find Lexi’s(his malress) imprisoned human friend Ian before it’s too late? And what questions will arise and be answered involving many of the characters tied to their world? From chapter to chapter, the intriguing story-line will draw you in with its entertaining display of  of exciting and sexy twist-and-turns into the world of the Myrens and those out to either destroy them or love them. I do recommend this enjoyable novel and definitely this incredible series. It is worth checking out and adding it to your TBR list! 🙂

MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘HEALING EDEN’

Reese to Galena:  He’d never dreamed he’d get this close to her. Not even when he’d visited the castle with Ramsay all those years ago. “I used to watch you.” Probably not his wisest confession. “I didn’t come to the castle often, but when I did I’d watch for you. You were barely past your awakening. I thought you were perfect.”

Reese’s words: “My choices were wrong. I knew it the day I blocked Ramsay. I knew it watching rebellion men die for a cause I wanted nothing to do with. I’ll pay the price. Willingly. All I want is a chance to make things right before I do.”

Clio and Eryx about Ramsay:  “Remember Ramsay,” Clio said. “Not all battles are fought with weapons. The heart is a valiant weapon for those brave enough to wield it.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?” Eryx said.
Clio kept her gaze on Ramsay. “When the time is right, he’ll understand.”
