This is my first book by this author and I decided to jump in blind. I did not read the blurb because I wanted to be surprised and I definitely was.

Ezra is the local high school football and baseball coach, the town’s most eligible bachelor, he is quite the catch. He might be cocky but he has a heart of gold. His rapport with his pupils is top notch and he treats them equally. The day he knocked Raleigh off her feet and made her nose bleed will definitely change his life.

Raleigh is one of the new teachers in her local high school. She is a walking disaster, the queen of klutz and a frequent visitor in the ER. To say that she is clumsy is an understatement. She has had a long-standing crush on Ezra since they went to the same school but he never even knew she existed. She always felt invisible blending in the shadows but when she fell over and got a black eye and a nose bleed, she finally got Ezra’s attention.

Told in dual points of view, this contemporary romance is set in a small town where everybody knows everyone’s business. Raleigh’s mishaps and accidents were so legendary that I sometimes felt it was a borderline slapstick comedy. But the tender moments and steamy escapades between Ezra and Raleigh are swoon-worthy and although this romantic tale is meant to be light-hearted, there are some serious issues that were actually tackled in this book.

I am glad that Raleigh was able to connect and help out a bullied student. The way that Raleigh and Ezra addressed the bullying is inspiring and quite apt with what is happening in our schools today. The secondary characters especially Moira, Ezra’s little niece provided the comic relief; her innocent quips were hilarious it gave me some laugh-out-loud moments. Ezra and Raleigh’s romance does not only entertain, but is also inspiring and heart-warming. I am glad I got to read this book, Lani Lynn Vale is my new favourite and I am looking forward to reading more of her books.

Malum: Part One (The Elite King’s Club book 4) by Amo Jone is LIVE!

Malum: Part One (The Elite King’s Club book 4), an all new dark romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE!

 

“Love is savage, love is blind, love is something they may not find…”
Once upon a time, there was a young girl who lived in a battered trailer, a girl from the wrong side of the tracks.
One day, she fell down The Elite Kings’ rabbit hole. Sucked into a dark vortex of lies, hate, and deceit, and spat out by money, glitz, and power.
There were things this little girl didn’t know, things she was about to find out and secrets that have been kept from her. Those secrets were guarded by the boys that were about to smash her world open and tear it all apart…
He may be a Malum, but she is a Stuprum, born into this world but neglected by the choice of her mother. Her eyes may not glisten with stars, but they roar with fire, and when she finally reaches her peak, it’s that same fire that will burn.
Them.
All.
Down.
My name is Tillie Stuprum, and my story is not like the rest.
Everything she thought she knew is a fabricated version of the truth. I’m Nate Riverside-Malum, the one your girl whispers about to her friends and whose initials are scratched down your back. Her story is not like the rest of them, because her story is dead.

This author is known for dark, realistic, hard to bare books. This installment of the Elite Kings was a total game changer, for both the author and the series.

Madison and Bishop are still embroiled in a love affair full of love and hate, but that’s not who this one is about. Oh no! Tallie and Nate get their chance to live in hell. If you’ve read the previous books you’ll know where they found themselves in Tacet a Mortuis

‘I lick my lips and smirk. “Tille is the opposite of Madison when it comes to fear. Madison cowers, gets scared and does a bunch of dumb **** that would have gotten any other girl murdered on the spot.”
Brantley turns his attention to me. “And what does Tillie do?”
 

We all witnessed how broken they are before. But for Nate, that broken far surpasses everybody else….well, other than Tillie but considering her parentage that goes without saying.

‘Pain exists everywhere though. It always has. At six years old, I knew that my life would be filled with nothing but pain.’ 

Love and hate intersect and combine like conjoined twins. Where one begins and the other ends, nobody can tell. Chess pieces litter the battleground like fallen soldiers. Who really is the master puppeteer is one of the so many questions thrown at you.

This book starts with a trigger warning. As the author states herself, her name is usually a trigger warning in and of itself. However, the depth of the depravity knows no limits. Triggers don’t often get to me. But this one? This one actually had been putting the book down and walking away to breathe. I just couldn’t put myself through it anymore, I cried so hard. I had to feel normal for a few minutes. I still finished reading, how could I not? These people have become something for me that I could be fooled into believing it was all real. The entire scene was hard-hitting and emotional.

‘I think to myself about the irony of that line. For I too, know of a place similar to Oz…’ 

You wouldn’t be remiss in forgetting the ages of these characters. Most of them aren’t old enough to “legally” drink. They exist in a world filled with monsters and evil. I truly believe because of all this explains why they live their lives on the more hardcore side. They live hard and fight harder for what they believe in.

‘I wasn’t born with a silver spoon, I was raised by blood sodden knives, and girls like me, we learn to use them as weapons. Love shouldn’t be offered up as a gift to just anybody. It should be preserved and used as a weapon to protect our heart.’ 

Tillie and Nate are so very much made for one other. But just how much can these two go through and put each other through before they lose the battle and just surrender to it all? Their relationship is raw and without limits. They bounce off so hard and fast they spin away and out of control, only they always come crashing back together. Both of them know what buttons to press and they are often corrosive and highly flammable. How could I as a reader loathe Nate so much for his actions and yet still care about his welfare? Messed up book, messed up reader. Clearly!

This isn’t a book about flowers and hearts. This book has a trigger warning for a very good reason. These characters indulge in many different vices, nothing is polished or glossed over. They are as human as humans can be. They hurt, they maim, they can and do commit murder. I will continue to root for them all because of what they mean to me.

Thank you, Ms. Jones, for once again messing with my head. It’s always a wild ride.
