Toe the Line by Penelope Ward

Toe the LineToe the Line by Penelope Ward

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward comes a friends-to-lovers story spanning more than a decade…

At first, I thought I’d hate spending the summer with Archie Remington—the conceited son of my parents’ friends. 
What I knew about Archie: he was gorgeous, pre-law, and had always treated me like I didn’t exist when we were younger. 
When our families bought a house together on an island in Maine, he and I were forced to share a bathroom.
The boy I remembered was now a full-grown man—but with the same attitude. 
After a rough start, Archie and I unexpectedly started getting along one day and eventually became friends. We shared secrets and bonded during our morning jogs. I discovered that Archie had a wild spirit and that he struggled to conform to his father’s expectations.
Things were cool until I had to go and ruin it, getting drunk one night, and blurting out my fantasy—involving him.
I took it back, but it was too late. Archie had heard me loud and clear. After that, we never quite knew how to toe the line. 
When that summer came to an abrupt and shocking end, I headed back to college, unsure if anything would ever be the same again. 
Across the miles over the years, he and I stayed in touch as friends, but fate and timing always kept us from becoming more.
You know the saying: If two people are meant to be, they’ll find their way back to each other?
Let’s just say Archie came back into my life in a way I would’ve never expected.
And this time, my heart would really be put to the test.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

OMG! It’s been so long since I’ve read a book by Penelope Ward, but reading Toe the Line has reminded me why she will always be one of my favorites!

This story was simply phenomenal from beginning to end. The relationship between these two characters was complicated to say the least, but it was still heartwarming in so many different ways. I enjoyed getting to understand these characters and their relationship in the past, and in the present.

This book had some emotionally heartbreaking scenes within it, but I could not put this down for nothing. I highly recommend this book it’s everything I didn’t know I needed!

New Release!! Sick Boys by Clarissa Wild


I didn’t believe them when they said they would corrupt me.
I was wrong. So wrong.

The night my sister died, a piece of me died with her, so I made a vow.
I'm going to enroll at Spine Ridge University just like her, find the person responsible ... and make them pay.

Until I meet three sick boys of the Skull & Serpent Society: Felix, Dylan, Alistair. Rude, heartless, vicious guys who are obsessed with making me regret I ever stepped foot on campus.

They make me a deal: My body in exchange for a glimpse at their violence.
Refusing them is impossible, denying them is insane.

They're rough, greedy, and every second with them is filled with depravity.
Their venom is jabbed straight into my heart and I’m sucked into their world.
All for the sake of revenge.

Until it becomes something more.
Something priceless.
Something all four of us would kill for.


My fingers push against his chest, but he grabs my hands and pins them above my head to the wall. Then he plants another deep, sultry kiss onto my skin, Page 1 of 4 Page 2 of 4turning up the heat, and I can’t stop the moan from spilling from my mouth when he grinds up against me.

“Please ...”

“Go on,” he murmurs.


He pulls away, his eyes narrowing. “You trying to back out of our agreement, Pen?” He makes a tsk sound. “I expected more from you. You know I won’t allow it.”

“No,” I say. “I just need you to stop trying to hurt me.”

He tilts his head, and a deadly smirk slowly forms on his face. “I’m not going to stop until I have what I came here for. And what I need is for you to suffer in silence while I do what I do best.”

“And what’s that?” I ask. “Bully girls?”

“Destroy people.”

He says it with such a stone-cold look that I’m feeling the chill in my bones.

“And that includes me,” I say under my breath.

“If it gets me what I want,” he replies.

“What the fuck do you even want, Felix?”

He stares me down like only a cold-hearted killer could. “Revenge.”

The air is thick with electricity, and all I can think about is how much I want to steal his knife and ram it straight into his heart ... and then let him rail me up against this wall.

Fuck. I hate how confused he makes me.

“You wanted my help? You got it,” he growls. “Then take it like a good girl.” He narrows his eyes and leans in. “And get out of my way before I finger fuck you in front of this entire crowd.”

I swallow. Hard.

Broken Play by Alison Rhymes


Broken Play


by Alison Rhymes

They have ties that bind.

June grew up in the shadow of her brother and his best friend, Drew McKenna. She stood back while Drew dated his way through high school and college, watching and waiting. Waiting for him to realize he loved her as much as she loved him.

When he did, it was the happiest she’d ever been. Until she found him with another woman only five years after their marriage.

Leaving her husband was a simple decision, but there was no easy way to cut him out of her family.

When June receives a fresh start to her career, she also finds what could be a new lease on love. Reality hits Drew with a vengeance.

He wants her back.
She wants to make him suffer.



HOLY F**K! Okay, where do I start? Broken Play by Alison Rhymes was nothing shorter than perfection. Drew and June will have my heart for a long while to come. I loved every single word. The emotions and pain that these two characters faced was raw and real. Alison Rhymes had me in tears so many times through out this book. The f**kery started early in this book. The first chapter left me trying to figure out what I got myself into. I couldn’t stop reading. Page after page I was hooked. BUT it doesn’t stop there. The side stories and relationships also had me on the edge of my seat in excitement for what I hope is to come.

I don’t want to give away spoilers, but Drew and June deserve their happiness. It took a lot to get where they are now. Forgiveness, redemption, learning who they are, figuring out who they are as a couple… Just so much that truly made this book feel so realistic. I highly recommend you guys read this book. Go in blind as I did, and prepare for the emotions that bleed off of the pages along the way. I commend Alison Rhymes. Cheating is not a trope that is easy to write, and you can tell she put a lot of time into it. It’s complex and real. It’s a book that’s about self reflection and learning how to trust again. Broken Play is hands down one the best books I’ve read in a while. I said it once, and I will say it again… PURE PERFECTION. A standing ovation to this DEBUT AUTHOR for writing a book that had me stuck, that will keep me remembering it for a very long time to come.

Release Blitz Black Out By Lynn Raye Harris

Title: Black Out
Series: Black’s Bandits #3
Author: Lynn Raye Harris
Genre: Military Romantic Suspense

Angelica Turner’s life is in danger. If she wants to survive, she’ll have to turn to a man with violence in his eyes and death in his soul. A man she desires, yet desperately needs to resist if she doesn’t want her heart shattered again.  

Hardened mercenary Colton Duchaine has wanted Angie since he first laid eyes on her, but he knows he’s the wrong kind of man for an innocent woman like her. His life is too dangerous, too unpredictable. He can never settle down.

But when someone wants Angie silenced, Colt will do whatever it takes to keep her alive. And when she’s safe, he’ll get out of her life for good.

Turns out that walking away is easier said than done. Angie is his—and Colt will stop at nothing to claim her for his own.


“I can’t believe you said that.”
“Why not? You have to know I’m attracted to you. I’m pretty sure you’re attracted to me. Don’t tell me you haven’t pictured me naked.”
“Oh lord, I am not having this conversation with you.”
“You have, haven’t you?” His dick started to respond to the thought.
“Colt,” she said firmly. “Don’t make me hang up on you.”
He laughed. “Okay, fine. We won’t talk about nakedness anymore. Unless you want to.”
“I don’t want to.”
“You sound uptight. Know what’s good for releasing tension?”
Colt laughed again. “Kidding, Ang. Sorta.”
