Music brought us together. Tragedy bonded us forever.


The Sinners of Seattle were the only family I knew.
That's where I met Ethan "Kill" Killion.
Both of us had bad childhoods. We knew all about unrequited love.
You know what they say... misery loves company.

We shared firsts.
We shared nights.
One of us fell in love. It wasn't him.

After the band broke up, Kill became the CEO of a communications firm.
Turns out, suits suit him. He's found success.
And he's getting married.

He's marrying someone who can't understand him.
Who has no idea what it's like to lose control.
Not to have a future.
I'm trying to stay sober, but it's hard when my world has crumbled.

Unrequited love can destroy you. I know.
But just one call from him reignites our spark.
Now there's no stopping it.
When things get dark, I don't care if I am shattered into pieces.
I just need one last time.

Review of Pieces of Us

Pieces of Us (Second Chance Sinners, #1)Pieces of Us by Claudia Y. Burgoa
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Pieces of Us book teaser video 

Pieces of Us by Claudia Burgoa (Second Chance Sinners #1) stole a piece of my heart. This all-consuming and additive second-chance mm romance is equally tragic and angsty. I couldn’t put this book down if I tried. I hit the last page and felt like I got sucker-punched in the feels. I cannot wait to read Somehow Finding Us (Second Chance Sinners #2) when it releases on 5/4.

RELEASE BLITZ

Title: Not Pretending Anymore

Authors: Penelope Ward & Vi Keeland

Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance

Release Date: April 12, 2021


BLURB


Finding a good roommate through a classified ad isn’t as easy as it sounds.

I was starting to lose hope.

Until a knock at my door came and God answered my prayers.

Except…uh…wrong prayer, God. 

I’d definitely requested the big guy find me a drop-dead gorgeous man on more than one occasion...just not as my roommate.  

Declan Tate talked me into interviewing him anyway.

While he was amusing and charismatic, I wouldn’t have been comfortable living with a man, so I regretfully declined.  

Then cupcakes showed up at my door—freshly baked by Declan and just as sinfully delicious as he was.

You could say he was persistent. 

I eventually folded.  It wasn’t like I had another viable candidate anyway.

Plus, I was interested in someone else. And Declan was into another woman. So it wasn’t like anything would happen romantically.

After he moved in, the two of us became the best of friends.  We even started to give each other advice on getting our crushes to notice us.  

Eventually, Declan concocted an idea: we should pretend to be a couple to make our love interests jealous. 

I was hesitant, but went along with it anyway. To my utter shock, his crazy plan worked.  

Now I was dating the supposed man of my dreams, and my best friend had the woman of his.  

But there was one problem. 

I couldn’t stop thinking about Declan.

Those feelings we were trying to fake?

Yeah…I wasn’t pretending anymore.

Spolier-free Review

Not Pretending AnymoreNot Pretending Anymore by Penelope Ward
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I’m NOT pretending when I tell you that I LOVED this book. This story was everything I had hoped it would be, and then some!!! I’ve read so many roommate/fake romance stories, but this one was a standout from the rest. I found myself getting very wrapped up and emotionally invested in the characters. I messaged Vi and Penelope after I finished this book with a teary-eyed photo. I’m sure they think I’m nuts (or have PMS), but that’s ok, I loved this book.  

Not Pretending Anymore will make you swoon, smile, and maybe shed a tear or two. I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again, Vi and Penelope make it impossible not to fall in love with their characters and their co-authored books. Not Pretending Anymore is on my Best of 2021 list.

Review of And I Love You the Most

And I Love You the Most (This Love Hurts #3)And I Love You the Most by W. Winters
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you read the first two installments on This Love Hurts, there is NO WAY you can miss out on reading the final book in this trilogy. And I Love You the Most (Book 3) picks up right where But I Need (Book 2) left off. I was thankful that I read both books back-to-back since book two ended a wicked cliffhanger. I don’t want to give anything away, but be prepared to binge this romantic suspense thriller from cover to cover. The final book was fantastic and left me wanting another book (maybe? please). If you’re learning about this trilogy for the first time, trust me and one-click the entire series.


Meet Willow



I started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read romance novels and I read everything I could get my hands on. I would read a book a day -- sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It's insane to me that I have connected with so many readers.

And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I'll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my littles during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a reader and it motivates me to push through and keep writing.  I couldn't be more grateful for this wonderful career.

BOOK REVIEW: The Finish Line by Kate Stewart is LIVE!

The Finish Line is the explosive conclusion in The Ravenhood Trilogy from best-selling author, Kate Stewart, is LIVE! This trilogy is of a modern-day take on Robin Hood, but with more Fast and Furious/Fight Club vibes. It’s an unconventional love story—#𝐁𝐀𝐃𝐁𝐎𝐘𝐒 #𝐀𝐍𝐓𝐈𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐎𝐄𝐒—filled with suspense, hella steam, major twists, a little action, and all of the feels!   Check out my spoiler-free review below. 

**All books in The Ravenhood Trilogy must be read in order. The can be read for FREE in Kindle Unlimited!  The series reading order is posted below.

The Finish Line Blurb

Secrets and Lies...


I’ve lived the entirety of my life wrapped up in subterfuge for one purpose—revenge.


Through the years, I lived more as an enigma than a man.


For so long, I denied I had a beating heart of my own.


Until her. Until she unearthed the starving vessel inside, forced me to acknowledge it, forced me to understand that I’m capable of bleeding the same as any other.


For that, we paid. We're still paying.


Yet, she demands it still, the useless heart of the ruthless thief and shameless villain she fell for. My fear is, I’m no longer that man.


With the lies I’ve told, the life I’ve led, my mistakes are beginning to catch up with me, day by day, one by one.


This is my last chance, and I have no intention of losing her again, but as the deception of my past starts to unravel and close in, shedding my humanity may be the only thing that can save us both.


Maybe it’s already too late.

Spoiler-Free Review: 

The Finish Line (The Ravenhood, #3)The Finish Line by Kate Stewart
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

If you read The Flock and Exodus, there is no way you are missing this book! The Finish Line is the final book in the Ravenhood series.  

This book picks off where Exodus left off. Since it’s been a while since I read Exodus, I thought I would skim it and get reacquainted with Tobias and Cecelia. Well, that didn’t work out as planned. I ended up pretty much re-reading it. IT WAS THAT GOOD. Then I devoured The Finish Line. 

Tobias tramples back into Cecelia’s life in order to win her back, all while dealing with a ton of emotional baggage. The Finish Line goes from Tobias’ past to present day, putting all of the pieces together.  Kate Stewart spun a wicked and addictive web of lies, passion, and devotion. This book is not to be missed. The Finish Line is one of my top reads of 2021 and total Kindle Crack. You must read this series in order.

Not What I Expected by Jewel E. Ann Cover
Synopsis: 

Are humans meant to mate for life? 


After four kids and an unfortunate but fateful end to her twenty-two-year marriage, Elsie Smith meets the new guy in town.


Kael Hendricks is ... a little younger, a lot sexy, and too confident for his own good. He also doesn't believe in marriage and all that goes with it. 


And ... 


He's just opened a new business that threatens the livelihood of Elsie's family's store--just in time for the holidays. 


The problem? 


There's an undeniable attraction that leads to out of control situations, a loss of inhibitions, and a lot of small town gossip. 


As Elsie tries to redefine herself and convince her family she isn't having a midlife crisis, she's forced to answer the biggest question of all ... 


Can she love an enemy who will never surrender? 


Review of Not What I Expected

Not What I ExpectedNot What I Expected by Jewel E. Ann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Not What I Expected Kindle Crack Book Reviews

Not What I Expected by Jewel E. Ann lived up to its title! This book is not what I expected.  It was so much more!

Not What I Expected is filled with so many sweet, sexy, and laugh out loud, awkward, yet relatable moments. If you've ever been in a relationship, married, widowed, or divorced, you will relate to this book. So pretty much every woman will find a little bit of herself in Elsie and her friends' relationships. Not What I Expected is about finding and giving yourself a second chance, embracing life and self-discovery. I felt like Elsie had a second chance romance with herself and she found romance within herself. She also managed to fill the empty space in her stubborn heart with Kael, the almost way too perfect new man in town.

As always, I actually did get what I expected from reading one of Jewel's books:  a heartfelt reading adventure with perfectly imperfect characters. I'm pretty sure I will never get the vision of a beakless turkey out of my head. You'll understand once you read this book.
