Bad Boy Brody by Tijan - 5+ Stars [arc review]

Oh look that.. I don't think I've ever been the first one to write a review on GoodReads for a book :)

Prepare to be amazed dear friends!
Tijan delivered yet another masterpiece.

Everything about this book was pure perfection. From the first page to last I was captivated and mesmerized by it all: the story, the beautiful setting, the main characters' souls, the horses, the secondary characters... ALL OF IT was beautifully written.

The Blurb (GoodReads):
(Blurb subject to change) 

The loss of his brother sends Brody Asher from Hollywood Golden Boy to Hollywood Bad Boy. When he might lose a blockbuster movie role because of his new reputation, he agrees to first do a small indie movie to clean up his image.
Arriving on location, he’s not ready for the family politics and mystery surrounding the movie script that was based on a real life murder. And he’s most definitely not ready to fall in love with the person that was the reason for the murder in the first place, or the fact that no one is supposed to know about her.

Every time I read a new book by Tijan I go: "this is my new book boyfriend". And every time I question how on earth she will top that. And EVERY DAMN TIME she does just that.
Bad Boy Brody is many things, a bad boy is not one of them. Sure, he is going through a rough period in life and acting out. But that is not who he is.
I loved how subtle his character was...as in, although he is the main character his presence in the book is not overpowering, it is his love for the wild girl he met by the river that is. I have no idea how Tijan did that, but it was such a wonderful touch.
Morgan is wild, care free and beautiful! At first you thing she will be this innocent and breakable flower of a girl, but as you get to know her the very opposite is true. She is strong and brave. She is damaged too, but not less strong because of it. And you will truly feel like you are part of her healing process while reading her story.

Once again Tijan wrote amazing secondary characters. She does it every time so I shouldn't be surprised anymore :)

I don't want to give you all the story away, so I will stop here. But guys, make sure you grab this beauty when it comes out. It was fab!!!

Quickies, April 2021

I read a good amount of older releases this past two months. I will not write long individual reviews for every single one of them but here are is a little bit about each one of them:  - Visions of Heat by Nalini Singh It's unlikely I will ever dislike something Nalini writes. She is a master of her craft. This is the second book in the Psy-Changeling series and it is just as good as the first. Shy and isolated Faith is plagued by visions of blood and murder. She has questions and needs help but can't ask those around her. She turns to the changelings and the only Psy she knows that has defied her race (first book in the series). Vaughn is more cat than human but has to control his instincts not to scare Faith away. This was a fabulous paranormal romance read but you really must read the first book first! 4 stars from me :)  - Desperate Measures by Katee Robert Desperate Measures is the story of Jafar and Jasmine. But if you read Katee before you know it is not that simple at

A Touch of Darkness (Hades & Persephone #1) by Scarlett St. Clair

I knew very little going into this book except that it had my current favorite bad boy in it: Hades! Seriously though, I have a "hades tbr" at the moment, it's a thing. And if you know any good Hades based romances do tell me. Always and forever looking for more. Hades, the God of the Dead was phenomenal. I have ZERO complaints about his character. There was more to the underworld than known by other gods and humans, and the same is true about the man that runs the place. He is to the point and although not always up front and straight forward he is always honest and true. He has built a gambling empire but his bets are not always monetary and they are known for being impossible.  Persephone was very much still learning who she really was. Up until meeting Hades and for some time after she has no power of her own. Plants die at her touch and that is that. She is also known as the goddess of spring, but that is not because of who she is but rather because of who her mother

The Last Tiara by M.J. Rose

The Last Tiara  by M.J. Rose is inspired by a real missing Russian Crown Jewel. She explains in an article to The Adventurine  how she stumbled upon an NPR article about the disappearance of missing Russian Crown Jewels that to date, have not been found. Captivated by it and how such amazing items could simply disappear she decides her new novel will tell the story of the lost tiara.  It is apparent throughout the book that M.J. Rose researched well the Romanov Jewels, the Russian Evolution, and especially the impact it had on the Russian people. Although she never goes into details, the poverty and difficulties the people experienced at the time are carefully and respectfully mentioned.  The book is told from two different perspectives, that of mother and daughter. The alternating chapters reveal Sofiya's life in Russia from 1915 through 1922, and Isobelle's in 1948 Manhattan, US. First we have Isabelle, an young architect in post World War II Manhattan .
