Monthly Wrap-Up: August 2020

Morning, everyone!

You may or may not have known that I haven’t been around. So let me explain. One, my mental health likes nothing more than to wreck every single good thing in my life. Two, Buddy, our cat, has been having health issues. Yes, he’s an older former stray. So we knew he’d have those issues. Hopefully, my life can get back on track.

Now, book-wise, August overall was a great month. Kindle saved me from reality. And I’ll be forever grateful for it!

I hope you like the post!

Monthly Wrap-Up: June 2020

Morning, everyone!

I know, I KNOW that is post is so late, but I took some time away from my blog.

June was pretty much unremarkable. I’ve lost count of how many months my family has been in isolation, so I drowned the month away with sixteen books, which broke my monthly reading record.

I hope you enjoy the read!

I hope your month was great for you! Enjoy the read.

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape.

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world.

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé.

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight.


“I want to feel something real,” I reply without uncertainty. “I want to let go of these chains that bind my body. To feel like I’m in control even if it’s only an illusion.”

I devoured this all-consuming and intensely hot novel in less time than I ever imagined. It monopolized my entire time that I forgot to function. If you’re looking for an enemies-to-lovers, dark bully romance, then Cruel Intentions should be on your list! Lies, betrayal, deadly secrets, teenage angst, bullies, and hot-as-hell guys who have stolen my heart, Cruel Intentions has it all and more.
