I am a Sovereign Son. A king within The Society.

Even me.
And I have broken the most sacred.

I claimed that which did not belong to me.

And now that the beast within has had a taste, it wants more.

5 stars

Review by Jen Skewes

I have become addicted to the writing of this amazing duo.  This society world that I have found myself completely immersed in, is raw, intense, archaic, and brutal.  And I love every minute of it.  

Her Rebellion takes place exactly where the first book left off.  We are left with a very broken Mercedes, recovering from the brutality that she suffered at the hands of Judge’s brother.  

Judge will do everything in this power to take care of her and protect, even more so now. He knows that he can never  be the man that she deserves or the man that she is destined to be with. But it doesn’t stop the feelings he gets when he even thinks of her with someone else.  It obvious how he feels for Mercedes, even if he still hasn’t realized it, but he knows that he cannot give her what she wants and needs.  The chemistry between them is palpable.  The feelings that they have for each other is passionate and intense.  But with so much in there way how they can possibly have a life together.  


I never thought after reading The Society Trilogy that I could love Mercedes. I didn’t even think I could just like her.  But after seeing all that she has been through and what she continues to go through, has completely opened up my heart. Her. She is feisty, sassy and independent but she is also very broken.  And it seems that the world she lives in keeps breaking her over and over again.  But despite all that she is so strong.  But what I loved in this book was how vulnerable she has become.  She has many doubts and makes rash decisions, doing her best to protect herself and her heart.  But when it comes to the man who is in charge of her, the man who has her heart, even if neither one of them realize it, she can’t seem to let go.  


Judge is still trying to understand the jealousy  and rage that he feels when he thinks about Mercedes with another man.  Maybe he does understand it but is too stubborn to admit it.  He knows that h=no matter what he feels for her, that he will never marry and therefore it will never work between them.  But regardless of how much Judge denies his feelings and continues to tell himself and Mercedes that they can never have a future together, that man loves her.  He may be a bastard at times, rough and controlling but he has a heart.  And In this book we saw just how much Mercedes De La Rosa means to him.  It was a moment where I completely fell for this man and gained so much respect for him.  


This book leaves us hanging once again, but I would not expect anything else.  I think this one may have hit me even harder than the last.  I need the final installment of this trilogy.  So far this has been one heck of a ride filled with twists and turns, shocking moments, tears, smiles and everything else in between.  This writing duo has once again captured me from the start, never wanting this series to end.  And I know that the final installment will exceed my expectations, as they always do.

Another tragedy, that's what. When I was six years old, my father made a choice that altered the course of my entire life. Because of what he did, the only girl I ever loved became the only girl I couldn’t have. In a lot of ways, I did have her… I had her first steps, her first words, her first smile. I had her milestones, her heartbreaks, her dreams. I had her heart so woven in with mine, I didn’t know where she ended, and I began. Only, as the years pressed on, lines became blurred—and the blurrier the line, the easier it is to cross. They say tragedy comes in threes. For me, that was true. The first one changed me, the second one broke me, and the third one healed me. But at the center of all that tragedy… there is a love story. And at the center of that love story, There is June.

Review by Jen Skewes

This is a taboo story about love, friendship and family.  At the age of 6, Brant lost his parents in a very tragic and scarring way.  His best friend's parents took him in and adopted him.  It was on this tragic day that Junebug was born.  June was bis best friend Theo's sister.  The two of them vowed to always take care of her.  They would bee the Luigi and Mario to her Peach.  And from the moment she was born they protected her in every way possible. 

While Theo and June were very close she had a very special bond with Brant.  And as they got older the lines started to blur.  While Brant never considered June to be his sister, they were still family.  Which meant that those lines could not be crossed, no matter how much he wanted to.  Something happens at June's prom where not only is that line crossed but neither one of them are sure if they can ever go back.  But also know that they cannot move forward.  Stuck between the line of lovers and family. Until tragedy strikes once again.  And all they can do is be there for each other.  At some point they have to figure out what to do with they feelings that they have for each other.  Because crossing that line, admitting their feelings will have consequences that could destroy so many.  What will they do and how will stye handle it?

The story starts out with Brant and Theo as kids, best friends that want to save the world.  Until tragedy strikes Brant's life and things change forever.  We see the two of them geeing up together with June.  how they protect her.  How his bond with June develops.  So a good portion of this book is in the past.  And for me personally it moved a little too slow.  I understand the author wanting the reader to really get a feel for how much June meant to Brant and really  Deve,op not just the characters but also their relationship.  But the first half of this book was too slow.  

Once it did pick up and we to to the taboo part of this story I loved it.  The intensity of their love for each other was felt deeply.  I felt for Brant and how conflicted hie was regarding his feelings.  Overall I did enjoy the second half of this book.  I did like that we saw them growing up together, I just think it took too long to get to the present.  


Jennifer Hartmann resides in northern Illinois with her husband and three children. When she is not writing love stories, she is capturing them through wedding photography with her own personal romance hero. She enjoys sunsets (because mornings are hard), bike riding, traveling, and that time of day when coffee gets replaced by wine. Jennifer loves tacos, and she really, really wants to pet your dog.

Lisa Kane's 4.5 Star Review!

Nicholai is the son of an indifferent, sometimes hostile single mother. I won't call her a single mom because there are no warm and fuzzy moments. She is the housekeeper to the Roth's, one of the elite families. She takes the subway into Manhattan, bringing him with her. Not because she is concerned that she is away from him each day for far too long, but because she doesn't want to be financial liable for any trouble he might do. He is told to never touch anything of the Roth's. She gives him $5 each day and sends him on his way once they are off the subway. They meet up when she is done, hours later. 

Nicholai learns to read the neighborhoods, who to steal from, who will feed him left overs, where to take a nap. It's the napping that leads to his first encounter with Arya Roth. He is catching a snooze, at one of his favorite places, a cemetery, at one of the headstones, Arya is talking to her brother's grave. Their first convo is feisty and it doesn't take either one of them long to learn who the other is-she is the privileged Roth daughter, he is the son of their housekeeper. Neither has any business talking to the other, but they are kids and kids are fearless. 

The become friendly and engage in a little puppy love. But one kiss on Nicholai's part will seal his fate. Arya's father sends him away to a school, far out of Arya's reach. What he tells her about Nicholai's whereabouts is unforgivable. 

Years later, enter Christian Miller. Nicholai no longer exists and this hot shot lawyer, a master of negotiations has taken his place. He's on the fast track to become partner. Only it's not fast enough for him. Having a bank account with lots of zeros no longer interests him. He wants to be a partner at his firm. They want him to actually go to trial on a case, instead of doing what he is known best for (and feared by fellow attorneys) and settle out of court. When a potential client comes in he knows this is the break he is looking for- he will prove his worth to his firm and he will get what he craves most-revenge. 

Ruthless Rival is a second chance romance for two kids, all grown up who never got the chance they deserved. Life has molded them in different ways, but each is strong and has their own moral compass and knows their limits. Christian has the advantage over Arya, she has no idea who he is. (which at first, I thought was a little strange, but there are reasons this works) She adores the man she thinks her father is, but there is a nagging little doubt there, in the back of her mind, that maybe things aren't quite what they seem. 

Redemption is a recurring theme in this story. Some things are worth forgiveness and some things....well they simply can not be forgiven. Holding back forgiveness hurts the victim even more than the one who does the unforgivable. It saps them of energy and purpose and clarity. But sometimes, the truly contrite deserve another chance. 

LJ Shen never fails to capture my attention and imagination with her books. The heroes are often the villains, the heroines often bring them to their knees. I just eat up her stories. This is the first in a new series. The next two are books about a couple of the characters in Christian's life who helped him to survive losing all he had. They are polar opposites and on the surface have few redeeming qualities. All I can say, is bring it on! 

Release Blitz: Goodbye Never by Prescott Lane

Goodbye Never by Prescott Lane is now live!

All the best love stories are tragic. Ours is no different.

Lennon is the woman who should have always been mine. The one that I let slip through my fingers time and time again. I was young, stupid, and arrogant enough to think love would wait.

Being in the Marines has taught me patience. The enemy never strikes when you expect it. Love is the same way.  

And falling in love with your best friend requires a special type of patience.  

So when tragedy strikes, the only thing I can do is be what I’ve always been to her — her best friend.

I’ve learned everything has a cost — even love. Lennon has paid dearly.

But I’m not about to let tragedy steal our happily ever after.

4.5 Stars

Review by Jen Skewes

I was so excited when I found out that Prescott Lane was realizing a new book.  I have loved every book of hers that I have read.  And once again she did not disappoint.  

Lennon and Duke have been best friends since they were kids.  He has always protected her and been there for her.  Even when the kids at school were making fun of her, Duke was the one who was there to protect her.  Lennon always knew her true feelings for Duke. She was in love with him, but Duke was a little slow to catch up with her regarding his feelings.  After  he graduated high school he left for the military to pursue his dreams, of serving his country.  Over time Lennon knew she needs to get over Duke and accept that they were just friends. But when tragedy strikes, Duke is back to help her pick up all of the pieces.  

Duke knew the Lennon was the one girl for him but I think in a way he thought he had all the times in the world.  He wanted to pursue his dreams but pennons wasn't going to wait around forever, for him to finally realize he loved her.  with everything she has been through duke wants to be there for her.  He wants more than just a friendship but knows he needs to take it slow and not push her into anything.  But the one thing Lennon's mom always told her was love a man who loves you more.  and she was never sure if Duke loved her more, because for so long she her love for him was unrequited.  Will they find their happy ever after?

I loved this book.  Duke was the perfect best friend and when he finally woke up he was also the perfect lover/boyfriend.  I think he always knew how he felt about Lennon but he wasn't ready for that love just yet.  They were young and had so much of there life ahead of them.  But at dome point he knows that he cannot lost her a second time.  duke stepped up to the plate and proved just how much he loved her and that was everything.  

Lennon was a perfect heroine.  I wish she didn't listen so much to her mom's "advice" because I think that held her back in a way.   I felt for her over and over again. I also felt her love for Duke.  the friendship they had was special, bit when they crossed that line it was amazing.  I loved watching these two find their way to each other and become more, become what was always meant to be.  Another great job by Ms. Lane.

Title: Jane Deyre
Author: Nelle L'Amour
Genre: Romantic Suspense, New Adult
Tropes: Age Gap, Single Father/Nanny, Forbidden Romance, Retelling
Release Date: April 28, 2022


“Seriously amazing! One of the best books I’ve ever read!” —S.E. Rose, USA Today bestselling author

A steamy and twisty contemporary retelling of Jane Eyre from USA Today bestselling and #1 Amazon all-star author, Nelle L’Amour.

When legendary actress Edwina Rochester offered me a job to be the nanny of her five-year-old goddaughter, I didn’t expect to end up living at Thornhill, her infamous Hollywood mansion. The site of a kidnapping, suicide, and possible murder.

Nor did I expect to fall in love with my charge’s devastatingly handsome father, Ward Rochester. A man who’s totally off limits and is hiding a secret.

As my feelings for him deepen, strange, frightening sounds start coming from the room next to mine. My most intimate possessions go missing. And someone’s leaving me notes, threatening my life.

Should I trust the mysterious, mercurial Mr. Rochester? My heart tells me yes. But my brain tells me run.

The problem, reader, is I have no place to go. And I cannot resist him.

Will I get the happily ever after I’ve always longed for? Or will I be the next victim of The Curse of Thornhill?

Nelle L’Amour is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, who lives in Los Angeles with her Prince Charming-ish husband, beautiful twin princesses, and a bevy of royal pain-in-the-butt pets. A former executive in both the entertainment and toy industries with a prestigious Humanitas Prize for promoting human dignity and freedom to her credit, she gave up playing with Barbies a long time ago, but still enjoys playing with toys with her hubby. While she writes in her PJs, she loves to get dressed up and pretend she’s Hollywood royalty. Her steamy stories feature characters that will make you laugh, cry, and swoon and stay in your heart forever.
