RELEASE DAY: In His Kiss by Ava Alise



♦ ♦ ♦


In his kiss_ebook cover

"This was a mistake."

With four little words, he sunk my entire world. Jordan should have been my first… he was already my everything. My best friend, my secret crush.

We were closer than siblings. Our family's weaved together an intricate pattern of lines never meant to be crossed.

Until that night…

We had a bit too much to drink and the heated way he stared at me made me feel that we could finally be something more. Things got a little out of hand and once the kissing started I didn't want it to stop. The time felt right and I gathered courage and told him how I felt.

If only I knew how awkward things would be the next morning.

"I'll sleep down here. You take the bed."

My body is warm and tingling. A sensation that only alcohol can produce. I feel great but this is the longest staircase in existence. We make it to the top and nearly stumble into his room.

"What?" I ask, drawing out the end of the word. "What do you think will happen?" He’s just about to open the closet door but turns when he hears me. His face is flushed, his eyes hazy, and he's swaying a bit, but he regards me without speaking right away so I continue my teasing. "You think I'm going to bite?"

"No, but I might."


"Alcohol," he mumbles, shaking his head.

What did he just say? A heat rolls down my body and I know I should let it go. We're both drunk and he's probably just talking but my curiosity and a bit of liquid courage push me forward.

"What did you say?" I step in front of him and grab his arms, not missing how hard his muscles feel under my touch. His head is tilted downward, eyes fixed on where I'm touching him.

Slowly, he brings his gaze to mine, his breathing becoming rhythmic and deep as his eyes darken. A look I've never seen from him before. It makes my pulse race.

I exhale and his eyes drop to my parted lips, causing me to look at his. My God. Is he about to kiss me? Please be about to kiss me.

RELEASE DAY: Splinters of You by Anne Malcom


By Anne Malcom
Release Date: April 30

Words are my weapon.
Stories wrap around my soul, choking me, capturing you.
I don't work in dreams.
I don't offer escapes.
I cage you within my nightmares.

Magnolia Grace is a horror writer, despite what the name might suggest.
One of the best in the business, if you asked around.
Pressure comes with that title. Expectation for the next nightmare. The next bestseller.


That's what it is.
She can't be healthy. Because that means she won't write.
And she hasn't been writing. 
A looming deadline and a crumbling psyche drive her into the woods. To a cabin which was the site of a grizzly murder.
A serial killer, butchering women, toying with her.
Her plan is to borrow some of the horror that seeped into the soil.

But hers follows her.

The woods are meant to be her escape. But they are almost her demise.


He was an unlikely saviour. An unlikely muse. He has horrors of his own. A motorcycle club looking to settle a score. A soul too broken to offer her anything but pain.

"Happy people freaked me out.
They were all liars."

Can we just pretend this entire review shows various ways my brain exploded while reading Splinters of You? I feel like every chapter I was either sitting there mouth agape with tiny explosions going off in my brain or I was laughing insanely hard (feeling slightly wrong about laughing at the context in Anne Malcom's upcoming release). I've met a lot of brutally blunt honest people, it is actually something I think the world could use more of. Magnolia Grace is extreme in her brutal honesty. You both love that about her and want to know more or you're too busy staring at the train wreck to notice anything else happening around you!

Anne Malcom uses her words like a tool of utter chaos and mental warfare. I don't think I recall another time where an author has given us an anti-heroine such as this one. And Magnolia Grace was just that. You love that you hate her and you hate loving her. What's really awesome about Magnolia Grace is she is well aware of her faults and she accepts herself. She might not like herself but she knows who she is and she doesn't hide it.

I've been reading Anne Malcom's books obsessively since her very first series. All of her books have a theme, one of love, of a couple who come together during their worst and bring out the best in each other. Splinters of You does not follow that theme. This feels like a book where she opened up her rib cage for us all to see what she's made of! She's full of passion and dreams, an obsession with the eloquent words released from her soul!! Every single time I read her I'm in awe of the poetic way she creates the worlds in her mind.

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.

COVER REVEAL:The Modern Gentleman by Meghan Quinn



Have you ever hit rock bottom?

I embarrassingly have.

It’s why I’m wearing my girl's decorative scarf over my head, clutching her lady drink to my chest, and singing ever so softly to Joni Mitchell while swaying back and forth.

This is what therapists refer to as LOSING IT.

Oldest story in the book: boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, boy screws up MASSIVELY, girl tells boy to suffocate in the fruits of his very own unborn children.

Heard it before? I'm sure you have.

So what's so different about this story? Well, it's about me, The Modern Gentleman, New York City's top advice columnist, and my rather ungraceful downfall from my pristinely polished pedestal.

It's about a girl I met who threw all my proven theories to the wind and left me awkward, needy, and absolutely head-over-wingtipped shoes in love.

This is a story about June Lacy and how she single-handedly dismantled The Modern Gentleman.

REVIEW TOUR: Chicks, Man by J.D. Hollyfield


Chicks, Man by J.D. Hollyfield is LIVE! 

#OneClick today!



Falling in love was the easy part.

Being secretly in love with my brother’s best friend is where it got tricky.

Levi Dent was off-limits. Which was probably for the best, since he barely knew I existed.

Until one night I saw an opportunity I couldn’t resist.

The problem was, I got caught.

She tricked me.

I knew there was something so familiar about her, but I just couldn’t resist.

Hannah Matthews was nothing more than my best friend’s little sister. Except she wasn’t so little anymore.

I need to forget all about her.

If only it were that easy...

Add to Goodreads:


This was one of JD Hollyfield's most balanced books yet. Honestly, looking at that cover you're going to expect a romantic comedy, I know I did. However, it was really more suspenseful than I expected. I was really intrigued with the writing and the entire execution of the story. I was just delighted with Hannah. She’s a strong, no-nonsense character that isn't scared to stand up for herself. Levi really didn't want to succumb to his growing feelings and attraction. His best friend is Hannah's brother so this really adds a layer for Levi the he isn't loving... but he can't seem to resist... and Hannah doesn't want to resist.

Now there is kind of a part 1 and part 2... it's kind of like the book veers off and goes on a separate but connected storyline. It isn't quite expected but I didn't mind it. I felt as though it pulled me back in and I got a fresh story with characters I was becoming fond of. But I'd go in knowing that it almost feels like 2 separate books combined... if that makes sense! I just love the way JD Hollyfield writes though! Her books are fun and charming, sweet and carefree. There's always banter and humor. The characters were likeable. As always, JD Hollyfield gave me an enjoyable book that I read way too quickly!! If only my favorites could write as quickly as I read them!! Ha! Every book lovers dream, right?!?!

I received an ARC of this book with the hope that I would leave an Unbiased Opinion. I was not required to leave a review, positive or otherwise, and my opinions are just that... my opinions.
