All That’s Been Said by Emma Doherty

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 241
Series: Carlington Twins Duology Final book
Genre: YA, High School,
Published: Nov. 7th, 2019
Rating: 4.5 stars


Izzy Kavanagh hates her new life in the US; that much she’s made obvious. She’s done everything she can to alienate her twin, Ethan, and to prove she doesn’t want to be there.

She’s certainly succeeded.

Perhaps a little too much.

Suddenly the idea of having her brother hate her isn’t what she wants. Knowing her mother would be ashamed of her behaviour weighs on her mind, and the idea of having someone who cares about her isn’t so bad after all. Then there’s her brother’s best friend, Finn. No matter how much she wants to ignore him and pretend she doesn’t care about his opinion, he always seems to be there, and it’s getting harder and harder to act like she’s indifferent to him.

But the damage has been done, and now all she can do is count down the days until she’s allowed to return to the UK and forget all about her time in the US.

That’s what she’s wanted all along…right?


All that’s been said…

Oh my goodness! I have all the feels. I love this book. It is better than the first. While the first book deals with Izzy and Ethan struggling with grief, this book deals with healing.

I am happy with the way it ended. I love the relationship growth between not only Izzy and Ethan, but with Finn as well. We get to find out all the answers to the questions we had in the first book.

The only thing that didn’t get explained is if Evie and Ethan stay together or if they are officially ended. Or maybe it did and I just skimmed over that.

Redeeming Rhys by Mary E. Palmerin

My edition: Kindle Unlimited
Pages: 160
Series: Stand-Alone (So far)

Are people born pure?

Is evil learned, or is it birthed into one’s soul, like a fallen angel who was previously par of graciousness?

Rhys is decayed, black, and bad. He cut distortion out of his life years before, but he let her live; his only way to gain redemption once more.

As his sinful needs blanket him with dread, he seeks penance from the soul he saw as a second chance.

Is absolution too late for Rhys?

**Warning, dark scenes depicted heavily throughout this novel. Read the Author’s disclaimer carefully before proceeding with this title.**

Review: One, two, Bad Boy is coming for you. Three, four, Little Girl it’s too late to lock your door. Five, six, Bad Boy is about to show you sick. Seven, eight, Bad Boy is gonna filet you like steak. Nine, ten, never see Momma or Daddy again.


What the hell did I just read?


Rhys is wanting absolution for his sins. The only one to give it to him is Wren. When Rhys was a little boy, he use to be beaten by his step-father. Everyday he was told he was a bad boy and that he needed to repent for his sins. One day he finally snapped.

Ten years later Rhys wants to find the one he let get away, Wren. Rhys is pretty messed up in the head. But so is Wren. Wren is Rhys step sister that he let live after he killed both of their parents.

I DNF this book at 83%. It was too dark for me and I couldn’t go on. This book made me physical and mental and emotional ill. I just couldn’t finish it.

If you have read the books then it is okay.

How well I have learned that there is no fence to sit on between heaven and hell. – Johnny Cash 

Oh Thia and Bear. How I felt for you in this one… This one made me almost ugly cry. (Note I couldn’t ugly cry because I was at work on my lunch break) The way Preppy has a tendency to pop up when I need him the most. Not so much in Lawless… well actually there is one time, with a certain water tower.

Bear is in jail when he finds out his mother is not really dead. Whoa right. The ending on Lawless was crazy. The again the endings to all of the King series is crazy. So far though nothing and I repeat nothing has made me ugly cry this much since the first time I read Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

So thanks Frazier for making my heart not only shatter but completely melted. There is now a gaping giant hole where my heart is supposed to be. Now this is all over a supporting character. A character I fell completely head over heals for.


We learn a little more of Bear’s back story and even get a little happy time with our three favorite guys. Learning more about Bear’s story I felt for him even more. Then Thia and Ray have a heart to heart at Grace’s house and I knew that these two were perfect for the boys.

“I’m not human,” she said hopping out of the truck “I’m a mom.” Doe 

Bear and Thia had some moments that made me question my sanity. Plus Thia gets a “dog” and named it something that I just couldn’t help but lose my shit over. Bear still has a fight amongst himself.

It was far from romance.
But it was still a love story.
And it was ours.

The ending…


I… I never ever had such emotion as I did when I came to the ending of this book. Even when I read Harry Potter I never had such an emotion. At the end I literally almost had a panic attack. I couldn’t even cry I was trying to breathe and wrap my head around the fact that half my brain was on the ceiling. Wy had to comfort me and of course he has this stupid smile on his face saying it’s adorable. Thanks a-hole. Just what a woman wants to hear while crying/having a panic attack over a book character/book boyfriend.

We’re not given forever. We’re given just a finite amount of time on this earth. It’s up to us to decide how we are going to spend that time and who we are going to spend it with.

This series has made it to my favorites list. I will reread it again and I will give T.M. Frazier’s other books a shot.

October 25, 2016 Preppy’s story is coming. Hold tight.

Lawless by T.M. Frazier

My edition: Kindle Unlimited

Pages: 231

Series: King #3

Synopsis: Off of Goodreads

Thia is prim and proper.

Bear is leather and lawless

It will never work between them.

It’s a lie they almost believe…

It is necessary to first read King and Tyrant to fully enjoy Lawless

Rating:4.5 what the hell stars

Review: Another ending that makes me want to go nuts. It is true that you need to read the first two books in order to get some back story on Bear. This starts off when Thia is ten and she meets Bear for the first time. The we fast forward seven years after, which seems to be a quite a few months from when Tyrant ended.

We go deeper into Bear’s past. To me the synopsis sort of lied when it came to Thia. She wasn’t that prim and proper. She seemed pretty normal to me. I was going in thinking this girl is going to be from the right side of the tracks and have a rich family. Almost like Doe. She did turn out to be the proper girl for Bear.

This one didn’t have me ugly crying but then again Preppy didn’t play as much of a role like he did in the other books. I felt for Thia and for Bear. But their story wasn’t as emotional for me as King and Doe’s. But that doesn’t me this wasn’t good. It was.

I was blown away by the ending. I can’t wait till I can get my hand on Soulless because I want to know what the hell is going on.

Tyrant by T.M. Frazier

My edition: Kindle Unlimited

Pages: 277

Series: King #2

Synopsis: Off of Goodreads

I. Remember. Everything.

Only now I wish I didn’t.

When the fog is sucked away from my mind like smoke through a vacuum, the truth that has been beyond my reach for months finally reveals itself.

But the relief I thought I would feel never comes, and I’m more afraid now than I was the morning I woke up handcuffed in King’s bed.

Because with the truth comes dark secrets I was never meant to know.

I will put the lives of those I love most at risk if I let on that my memory has returned, or if I seek help from the heavily tattooed felon who owns me body and soul.

I don’t know if I’m strong enough to resist the magnetic pull toward King that grows stronger every day.

He’s already saved me in more ways than one. Now it’s my turn to do whatever it takes to save him.

Even if that means marrying someone else…

Rating: 5 Because Pancakes stars

Review: I never expected to fall in love with King. My captor, my tormentor, my lover, my friend, my world.

Our boys are back along with our girl. This one starts off right where King ended. Frazier takes us on an emotional roller coaster through this book. I had to have tissues next to me and I wish I had a glass of wine. Remember in King how I said my ice heart shattered. Well those pieces are now shattered into more little pieces.


I’ll always be here. You can’t make me leave if you got the priest from the exorcist to come remove me. Cause I’m one step above demon… I’m Preppy.

Preppy still won my heart. The ending with him made me laugh and cry at the same time. Bear, I cried for Bear. I didn’t want anything bad to happen to him but Frazier tends to take our favorite characters going through f*cked up shit and throw more f*cked up on them.

Throughout the book, Doe’s memories are coming back to her. She is piecing the puzzle together on what happened to her. Again Frazier has a way of adding more f*ucked up on top of already f*cked up. But I don’t want it any other way. I was on the edge of my seat. I seriously need a big bottle of wine just for this. I think I will buy one before I read Lawless.

To tell you I knew how this was going to end and that the book is utterly predictable, would be a giant lie. I mean GIANT!! Doe had my stomach in knots. From her memories to her relationship with King. Like with the first book, I had to put this down and ugly cry. I mostly hid it from Wy but I think he could have guessed I was crying. This time when I put it down to cry I was only at 45%. Little did I know that I was going to do a lot of ugly crying. I couldn’t put this down and wait till morning to finish it. Towards the end I had to put my hand of my mouth to keep from screaming “Preppy”.

You and me… we’re a forever kind of thing.

Now moving on to Bear’s story. Will my heart be able to take it??

King by T.M. Frazier

My Edition: Kindle Unlimited

Pages: 302

Series: King #1

Synopsis: Off of Goodreads

Homeless. Hungry. Desperate.

Does has no memories of who she is or where she comes from.

A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pa him back is blood, sweat, pu$$y or a combination of all three. 

King’s Future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go.

Warning: This book contains graphic violence, consensual and nonconsensual sex, drug us, abuse, and other taboo subjects and adult subject matter. Although orginally slated to be a standalone, KING is now a two part series.

Rating: 5 PREPPY stars

Review: So I will start off by saying that ending is a fucking asshole. I really hate cliffhangers. Especially ones like that. It broke my heart.

This book… how to explain… AH!!!


My heart before book. It was as normal as ever. Well started reading the book, I was fine until a certain chapter that I will not mention due to a huge spoiler. After that chapter my heart turned into this…


It shattered.


I actually cried too. Wy looked at me weird as always. I felt for these characters. While most people fell in love with King, I fell hopelessly for Preppy. Bear was alright.


This book had me in a swirl of emotions. I had to put the book down and get a good ugly cry in. Yes I do mean ugly cry. The kind most girls are doing at the end of the Notebook. (Or if you’re me at the end of Lone Survivor.) Then when I picked it up I noticed I was 93% done. I had a feeling that this was going to hurt even more. Turns out that it didn’t. It made me mad as hell. That ending. Gah!! I want to punch, kick, and scream. All at the same time.

Lucky for me this series is on KU and now I have Tyrant. Even though I want Doe and King and Bear I can’t help but feel sad. I want to go back before that awful party. I want to see the happy times again. When Preppy was making pancakes and perverted jokes. When Bear tried to pick up Doe and King gets all alpha male on her.

Hopefully in Tyrant it will be a happy ending because I need one dammit.
