Blog Tour+Review: The Outliers by T.M. Frazier

The Outliers by T.M. Frazier Release Date: November 9th, 2017Genre: Contemporary RomanceSynopsis Sensual. Heartbreaking. Passionate. Overwhelming. Maddening. That’s the love Finn and I share. It's the kind you can never recover from. The kind you never WANT to recover from. That's why we'll do everything and anything to protect it. When my past chases me all the way to Outskirts, we have to make a choice. Let the lies destroy our chance at future together or...bury them deep in the swamp where they belong. Got a shovel?

So I’ve been impatiently waiting for this duet and we pick up right where we left off. I have to say that I wasn’t as invested with this second part of the story. Don’t get me wrong I loved The Outskirts but this book just fell flat in some areas and I found the plot to be predictable at times. We did get some much needed closure and I’m content with the outcome but this wasn’t my favorite book by the author.3 Book Corner Stars  *ARC Review*

Review: Dear Martin by Nic Stone

Justyce McAllister is top of his class and set for the Ivy League—but none of that matters to the police officer who just put him in handcuffs. And despite leaving his rough neighborhood behind, he can't escape the scorn of his former peers or the ridicule of his new classmates.

Justyce looks to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for answers. But do they hold up anymore? He starts a journal to Dr. King to find out.

Then comes the day Justyce goes driving with his best friend, Manny, windows rolled down, music turned up—way up, sparking the fury of a white off-duty cop beside them. Words fly. Shots are fired. Justyce and Manny are caught in the crosshairs. In the media fallout, it's Justyce who is under attack.

“Why try to do right if people will always look at me and assume wrong?”

As a person of color I have had several thoughts as Justyce and several topics hit very close to home. For a debut author Stone was able to grab my attention with her words and loved how the st…

New Release+Review: Defiant Queen by Meghan March

The Mount Trilogy continues with Defiant Queen... I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt. I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me.

New Release+Review: Defiant Attraction by V.K. Torston

Dan might be the enemy of my enemy, but I’m not sure that makes him my friend. He’s definitely not my ‘step brother’, no matter what everyone at school says. Honestly, I don’t know what he’s supposed to be to me. Or what he’s becoming…

Fact: for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

In the yearbook, I’ll be Sophia Ramos: Valedictorian. Years of honor roll certificates, AP classes, and lugging around an obnoxiously large cello case are about to finally pay off. If everything goes according to plan, I’ll escape these decaying suburbs for a top university across the country. 

The problem? A few years ago, my mom met someone just as broke, just as drunk, and just as impulsive as she is. Approximately five seconds into their relationship, they decided it would be an excellent idea for him—and his son, Dan—to move in with us. (Spoiler alert: it wasn’t).

Now I share a house with none other than Daniel Cole. Even though Dan dropped out two years ago, he’s still the tattooed, bad …

New Release+Review: On The Way To You by Kandi Steiner

Publishing Date: November 16th, 2017What makes you happy? That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared. And then, I got in his car. It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it. We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in. Discovering his journal changed everything. I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that. I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew w…

New Release+Review: Forever Yours by Liz Lovelock

Title: Forever Yours Series: Letters in Blood #3 Author: Liz Lovelock Genre: Suspense/Thriller Release Date: November 15, 2017


Blurb
Dear Captor,

You show me you care, but then something changes. The brightness in your eyes shines through on your good days, but when you come to me on your dark days, the blackness has taken over.
At least I know what I’m in for . . . pain.
You’ve managed to crawl under my skin in the most excruciating yet sensual way, my darkest secrets are now yours, and the emotions I feel for you are something I’ve never felt before. This sensation is strange, yet exhilarating.
Do you feel the same?
If you do love me, please . . . let me go.

Forever yours,
Elenore

The conclusion of the Letters in Blood series is one full of twists mixed with unexpected surprises.  I think everyone reading has a theory and I was not far from the mark in my original idea, but oh, holy twist Batman! This series was my first read by the author and I thought the whole plot was qu…
