Rogue Royalty (Savage Trilogy Book 3) by Meghan March *~*~*~*~*~* Release Blitz

   



    

  Unthinkable. Unbelievable. Inconceivable. I don’t recognize what my life has become. I can’t tell where the lies end and the truth begins anymore. He came into my world and urged me out of my safe little corner. All my dreams are coming true except the one thing I want most— my own happy ending. But I’ll fight for it. For now. For always.

Who knew things could get even darker and dirtier in New Orleans? New York Times bestselling author Meghan March introduces the Savage Prince of the city, the man you never want to meet. I do what I want and who I want. I don’t follow anyone’s rules—even my own. I knew I shouldn’t touch her, but it didn’t stop me. Didn’t stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third. My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn’t. But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I’m nowhere near ready to quit her yet. I’ll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness. Hopefully it doesn’t kill us both. Savage Prince is book one of the Savage Trilogy, set in the same world as Ruthless King, however you do not need to read the Mount Trilogy to devour this scandalously hot new story.

He’s a mystery. An enigma. His very identity is a secret buried beneath layers of deception. He’s also an addiction I can’t shake. An attraction I can’t fight. And then I found out exactly who he is—a man more dangerous than the devil himself. Now I need him in order to save everything that matters to me. I have to pull back. Protect myself from the danger that haunts his every step. Which would be easy . . . if I could stop myself from falling in love with him.

Marble isn’t the only thing that’s hard at this museum.
His body is as chiseled as Adonis. His lips are as sculpted as David. And his ego is the size of the Guggenheim.

But he’s wrong, and I’m going to prove it to him. If I can stay away from his devil lips, that is. Lips that cut me down and kiss me in the same breath, leaving me certain he’s on a mission to ruin my life.

Piece of Work by Staci Hart
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Here's to not so secret secrets...

They say a picture is worth a 1000 words.  If I could paint or draw, I'd make a picture for you with love, angst, frustration, fear, power, and more.  But since my picture would likely end up a jumbled abstract leaving a lot of room for interpretation, I'll tell you with three words: I LOVED IT!  Okay a few more... set in New York City at the Met with a trip to Florence, Italy, this story will keep you turning the pages.  To see how Rin is growing into a strong woman and to see how Court will screw up next.  And now a bit about the story...

Rin is working on her dissertation while starting an internship at the Met.  Court is the curator responsible for her area of study.  Rin is tall, almost as tall as Court.  Being 6' tall can be difficult for fashion on a woman.  So Rin wears men's shirts and her pants are often too short.  Court is handsome, but angry and closed off.  Rin comes to work her first day timid and shy svc dressed like a frumpy co-ed.  She immediately loses any respect from those at the Met based on her appearance.  However once they read her work, minds shift.  Then when she decides to take some power back and dress for the role to get her confidence back, she bowls then over.  Now onto the next challenge, acquiring David!

Favorite passages:
 - “It’s like having a Greek god send you to Hades for sacrificing the wrong kind of goat.” 
 - But that was the funny thing about hearts. What they wanted and what would hurt them were sometimes the same. And in the battle of head over heart, I had always sided with my head.
 - “You don’t have to say anything. I don’t need you to tell me I’m right. I’m always right.”

Excerpt:
He smirked and flipped up his sunglasses. Bastard. “You’re early,” I clipped. “I would have had my assistant text you, but she’s currently bedridden.” You could have texted me.” “I didn’t have your number,” he said simply. “Oh.” His eyes shifted to look behind me, and I turned to find my friends standing me in a row with my suitcase in front of them, my messenger bag on top, and fake smiles on all their faces, lips together, their judgment about as quiet as a foghorn. “These your roommates?” “Yup,” was all I said as I turned and took my suitcase, hugging each of them down the line with promises to text when we landed. And then I turned to Court, rolling my suitcase in front of me like like a riot shield. I tried to pick it up to carry it over the threshold, but it was heavy, and before I could get far, he’d swept it out of my hands like it was a loaf of bread and not fifty pounds of mascara and shoes. I waved at my friends, who offered encouraging smiles and hand gestures, and I closed that door, immediately regretting every decision I’d made to bring me to the moment I turned around. He stood at the door to the backseat, holding it open for me like a gentleman, which I knew he was not. But the look on his face of regret and deference, under the hard shell of his brooding, was almost too much to bear. So I did the only thing I could. I ignored him. I ignored his gorgeous lips as they tilted and the sleek cut of his jaw as I walked past him. I ignored the sight of his long legs as he climbed in next to me and the smell of him that made me want to grab him by the lapels of his jacket and bury my nose in his chest. The driver took off, and I busied myself in my bag, looking for my headphones and book. His eyes were on me. I pretended like I didn’t notice. “You’re not wearing lipstick,” he stated. Headphones, headphones, headphones. “It’s an international flight, Court. Of course I’m not wearing red lipstick for a ten hour flight.” A pause. “Rin, I—” Aha! I popped in my earbuds the second they were in hand. His lips flattened, his face unamused. Rin, his lips said, but I smiled and shrugged, pointing to my ears. “Noise canceling,” I said way too loud. His chest rose and fell with a sigh I couldn’t hear—I’d already turned on music, a playlist we’d built the night before geared toward resisting douchery and unwanted-slash-totally-wanted advances—and he reached into his own bag, a leather affair at his feet, his hand disappearing into the bag and reappearing with a book, which he handed to me. He watched me with his expression shrouded as I paused, my eyes on the offered book. An image of Penitent Magdalene by Tintoretto filled the cover, and I met his eyes, pulling my earbuds out by the cord. “I thought you could use this. For your proposal,” he said, giving nothing away. “I…A colleague of mine wrote it, so if you have any questions, I can connect you. If you want.” I took it from his hand, surprised and disarmed. “Thank you,” was all I said. He opened his mouth as if to speak again, but closed it, and with a nod, he reached back into his bag for his own book. Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake. I put my earbuds back in place, trying not to bite my lip, but it found its way between my teeth despite the effort at the sight of him sitting there, dressed like that, reading Margaret Atwood. After giving me a thoughtful gift, a book he knew I would want, one I would need for my dissertation. Court Lyons made about as much sense to me as a scrambled up Rubik’s Cube. I leaned against the door as I flipped through his gift, doing my best to sort through the rush of questions and confusion as Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s sang about being cheated by the opposite of love. And I found I knew exactly the feeling.

Review: Vanilla and Vice

Vanilla and Vice Vanilla and Vice by Tabatha Vargo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Will she do ANYTHING to avoid becoming a Vegas vagabond??

This story based mostly in the Empire Sevens resort and casino in Las Vegas is one of starting from nothing and surviving. But what will you do to live - steal, nudity, sex, murder???? Story unfolds brilliantly in front of your eyes as you turn the pages, from the casino noises to the dark bars to the drunken Vegas party goers. As with the past Tabatha and Melissa books I read, the written is seamless. And now a bit about the story...

Eden has escaped her deplorable living conditions only to run out of gas, literally, before getting to her aunt. The Vegas luck is on her side and one of her aunts co-workers rescues her. Now she has a real shot at doing something with the rest of her life. But her aunts boss has other ideas. For Zander, Eden is the ultimate challenge to his addiction. He knows he can't be near her, but he also knows he can't live without Eden's aunt. How will these two survive each other. Will her very vanilla demeanor be the vice he just can't resist?

Favorite passages:
- Even if it was against my morals a tiny bit. I was a beggar. And beggars couldn’t be choosy.
- Instead, she went in that locker room like a fucking fighting champ and came out looking so goddamn delicious that I almost threw myself off the wagon at that moment.
- I knew because I watched her regularly instead of sitting behind my desk doing actual fucking work.

(Cupcakes, #4)


Synopsis:

For the first time in a long time, life is good. I've got a smokin' hot motorcycle man as my fiancé, the best friends a woman could have, a couple of great kids, and things have been relatively quiet on the PI front.
You know what that means... the other shoe was bound to drop sooner or later... Just when I was ready to settle down and plan the coolest wedding Greenswood has ever seen, the shit hit the fan, and hit it hard. My friends are fighting, Cade's been out of town doing God knows what for the club, and my sweet little twins are turning into hair-pulling pre-teens with more drama than my old daytime soaps. I feel like I'm being pulled in a million directions, and I've been going so crazy that Elin's swear jar is near to overflowing. I've been eating cupcakes like a woman possessed, and if I'm not careful, there's going to be a Cupcake Explosion... in my pants. WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS.

Cupcake Explosion (Cupcakes #4) by Bethany Lopez
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Can you really explode from too many cupcakes????

Bethany has done it again... I read all four books in this series back to back. She has Lila and Cade in some wild situations again. No book four spoilers here, but no guarantees on one-three. As I've said before these stories are mysterious and hilarious, plus a few embarrassing situations to make comedy for most... And now a bit the story...

Before Cade and Lila left Hawaii they got engaged. Now that they are back home it's time to make decisions for their future and plan their wedding. All their friends and Cade's family are pitching in. It seems all Lila has to do is pick out her dress and show up. With so much spare time she heads back to the gym until she gets a case that has her wondering if there will be both a bride and a groom able to show up at the alter...

Favorite passages:
- Yeah, I realize that would be three cupcakes and it isn’t even dinner time yet, but who’s counting?
- “Don’t worry, I’ll find a place for the kids even if it’s the local animal shelter,” I replied excitedly, then said , “Just kidding,”...

Always Room for Cupcakes (Cupcakes #1) by Bethany Lopez
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Dessert is a dish best served with chocolate!

Hilarious comedy slash mystery with just the right amount of romance. The storyline is realistic and often leaves you wondering what will happen next. Lila may struggle with many things, a recently divorced mother of twins, but she makes it work and always has room for cupcakes! And now a bit about the story...

Lila is working part time for her best friend, Amy May, at her bakery. She also works part time for Moose taking covert (or so she thinks) photos. When Moose takes on a dangerous client, Lila finds herself over her head. Luckily Cade is nearby and rides in to the rescue. But there is still a bad guy out there to catch...

Favorite passage: “This is different for me, so it’s kind of good that you’re out of practice. Maybe you won’t realize right away when I fuck up.”

Cupcake Overload (Cupcakes #2) by Bethany Lopez
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Can there ever be such a thing as too many cupcakes???

And the saga continues with Lila, Cade, The Douche, and so many more... No spoilers for book two, but many for book one. Hilarious, mysterious, and with the right mix of danger and passion. I could almost taste the sugary sweetness of the frosting as Lila tackles her next case. And now a bit about the story...

Lila is working through the pain and suffering of her actions while she was drugged. Now she owns the PI business, has a new house to fix up, and is trying to call her ex Eric and not The Douche. Cade is excited to introduce her to his MC. Though things do not go as planned when he discovers she already knows his VP. Then to add to the mix there is a dead body and a new puppy. This is going to require lots of cupcakes and piddle pads!!

Favorite passage: “Did you know that desserts is stressed spelled backwards?”

Lei'd with Cupcakes (Cupcakes #3) by Bethany Lopez
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Vacation Excitement, cupcakes included!!

Who would thought paradise could be so dangerous... No spoilers for book three, but many for book one or two. 90+% of the story is set on the Big Island in Hawaii. Cade is taking Lila and her kids to meet his family. There is suspense, love, frustration, danger, plus lots of Hawaiian favorites. And now a bit about the story...

Cade and Lila have had an explosive sex life. But as soon as they are set up in his childhood bedroom, Lila puts the kibosh to sex under their roof. Which he just sees as a challenge and Lila finds herself repeatedly embarrassed. Meanwhile Cade's younger sister seems to be in trouble. In meddles Lila and before you know it things have progressed from bad to worse. How will they ever get out of this one?

Favorite passages:
- “This is the life I deserve,”
- I guess it’s true what they say, moms know everything.

Vanilla and Vice is LIVE! 


Now LIVE! Vanilla and Vice by Tabatha Vargo and Melissa Andrea.
A recovering sex addict meets an irresistible virgin. 



VANILLA & VICE


My sick obsession with domination and sex had become an addiction, and I was no longer willing to be a slave to it.  Now, I’m six months sex free, and I haven’t tied a woman up in five.
I’ve never felt more powerful in my life.
Then Eden Vaughn got a job at Empire Sevens and turned my newfound control on its head.
She makes me feel weak and tests my restraint, silently begging me to show her how deep my addiction runs. I can’t have her sort of temptation in my casino, and I’ll do whatever it takes to get her to quit.

I’m into all things dark and filthy, but innocence is my kryptonite. She’s virtuous and vanilla, and vanilla is my VICE.

STALK TABATHA
Book+Main Bites ~ @TabathaVargo

STALK MELISSA 


Crashing onto the black leather couch in my office, I reached down and undid the button on my slacks and slid the zipper down.
My cock was hard and angry, tight from the pressure of an unfulfilled promise.
I gripped it, hissing at the pleasure and pain. My balls ached, begging me to give in.
And so I did.
I tugged up, rolling my head on the back of the couch with a sigh. Stroking up and down, careful to put pressure where I wanted it most, I worked my cock until the pain in my balls slowly dissolved, leaving only pleasure.
I closed my eyes, envisioning Eden’s sweet smile. I imagined her looking up at me through her lashes and grinning.
She wanted me.
She wanted to taste me.
She wanted me to fuck her so hard and so fast that she screamed and came all over my throbbing dick.
In my imagination, she dropped to her knees and took me into her warm mouth, her tongue swirling around my engorged head before she tickled the hole a bit with the tip of her tongue.
She worked her hand down my shaft, her mouth following the path until she took all she could into her mouth. My tip sliding into the back of her throat until she began to gag a bit.
Her saliva coated me, warming my dick and lubing it as her mouth worked up and down on me.
“Yeah, angel, just like that,” I whispered. “Suck my cock, baby.”
If only my imagination was real.
If only she were there, kneeling in front of me like a virginal sacrifice and servicing me to the edge of insanity.
I pumped harder, the pleasure so extreme I was starting to feel dizzy. My breathing was rough and fast, my hips tense as I thrust into my palm.
In my mind, Eden was reaching down and palming my balls, massaging them as her sweet sucking and tugs pulled my orgasm from deep inside.
I was getting closer the more she sucked.
The harder she sucked.
She licked.
Massaged.
It was so fucking good.
“Fuck, angel. That feels so fucking good. You want me to come in your mouth, don’t you? You want to taste me? Want my cum to cover your tongue before you swallow it?”
In my mind, she nodded, sucking harder as I reached the end.
Then the sound of my office door echoed throughout the room, and I opened my eyes to see Eden standing there looking at me. Watching me jerk off while in my imagination she was blowing me.
I couldn’t stop.
I was too close to the end.
Too close to the pleasure I had denied myself for the past six months.
Surprisingly, she didn’t leave and slam the door behind her.
Instead, her eyes dropped to my hand, and her eyes went wide.
“Don’t move,” I said as I continued to pump my cock. “Just stand there and let me look at you.”
She obeyed, going stiff as she stood in the doorway of my office without moving.
Her eyes followed my quick movement, and she bit her lip like she was enjoying it.
“Do you like watching me?” I asked, not really expecting her to respond.
She didn’t, and I was fine by that.
Through her dress I could see her nipples hard and peaking, needing to be nibbled and sucked.
My fist tightened, and I pumped harder, feeling the slow rise of my impending orgasm as it crawled down my spine and tickled my hips.
Her cheeks were crimson. She was blushing so hotly, her body spotting in red flushes. She gripped her fingers together, the tips turning white from her strength.
Was she holding herself back from me?
Did she want me as badly as I wanted her?
I almost asked her to come to me, lift her dress, and let me fill her sweet little cunt with my juice, but I had already fallen too far. I didn’t want to make my relapse worse.
Her eyes shifted, turning away from me and landing on the wall beside my head.
 “Don’t look away,” I demanded. “I want you to see the moment my cum spills for you.”
Her eyes went wide, but she listened, continuing to watch.
“Fuck,” I muttered. “Just your eyes on my cock while I jerk it is doing it for me.”
Her eyes dipped to my dick, and her tongue peeked out and swiped across her top lip like she wanted to taste me.
That was all it took.
I came.
I exploded so hard I growled like a fucking savage, which was appropriate since I felt like an animal.
Wild.
Uninhibited.
On the verge of total chaos.
It was the best fucking orgasm I had ever had in my life from jerking off.

Passion Rising (Original Sin, #4)  by JA Huss & Jonathan McClain
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐


He's cured!!!!!

They've come along way from Ford and Scarlett. Stolen and exploded cars, fires, bruised ribs, just to name a few of their adventures. And there are more to come as Tyler and Maddie head towards the new year. They details of the story flow before your eyes, pulling from your own memory blanks. I can hear the milkshake metal tumbler hitting the table, see the condensation running down the sides. And now a bit about the story...

Maddie and Tyler have survived their beach side Mexican excursion. Now they are back in Vegas and struggling with what to do next. They've been thru a lot in less than three months. Tyler still doesn't have a home and now has no car. Maddie still doesn't have a car, but doesn't want to live with Diane and Carolyn anymore. So they are crashing at Evan and Robert's until they figure it out. That should be safe, right??

Favorite passages:
- Maybe all our mistakes add up to something bigger. Maybe all the bad decisions were just good ones in disguise.
- I can’t see what they’re seeing because my hair is now all rumpled, having been man- and lady-handled, and is hanging in front of my face completely. I kind of feel like Cousin Itt from The Addams Family.
- Time to come out of the darkness and into the light.
- Because I don’t really give a shit about being “nice.” Anybody can be “nice.” I think what I want to be is... kind. Which is a different thing altogether.
- “She saved me when I thought I was past the point of saving.”
- “It’s a privilege,” I say. “I mean, that’s what commitment is.”“What?”“Showing up. Even when shit ain’t easy. Especially when shit ain’t easy.”
- I glance at the clock on the Tesla’s massive computer screen (the car itself is actually just a computer on wheels, which makes me wonder what the fuck happens if it gets hacked)
- The fact that he can be the toughest son of a bitch I have ever met and the most hard-headed infant all at the same time is just... well. It’s perfect.

Excerpt

MADDIE

It strikes me suddenly that I’m not the only one who will notice how fucking good Tyler looks now that he’s all clean-shaven and you can really see that ridiculously fortunate bone structure he has. And I’m a little embarrassed about the fact that I just got all possessive and shit. I’m about to say something to that effect, either make a joke or play it off, but before I can, Tyler grabs me around the waist, pulls me to him and whispers, “That was so fucking hot,” just as the doors to another elevator pop open.
He walks me backwards into the car and frantically pushes the “door close” button before anyone else can step in. He’s got me pressed against the mirrored glass and his hands are between my denim-covered thighs, cupping my pussy. He kisses my neck and the feel of his lips, without any rough hair to brush and scratch against mine, feels so good that I can barely stand it. I didn’t realize his kiss was so soft. The skin of his mouth feels new. Like, I was just starting to get accustomed to the way his kisses felt, and suddenly it’s a whole new experience. New, but familiar. The same way it was when I met him.
It’s how this whole moment feels. Back in the Mandarin where we were on Halloween when we found out who we are. A concept which, I realize in this moment, might be true in more ways than one. It’s been barely two months since we turned each other’s lives upside down. Except that’s not quite fair. Or accurate. Our lives were already upside down. We’ve turned them back right side up. Yeah, we disrupted each other’s worlds, but we did so in the most magnificent way. And it’s starting to feel like that disruption is going to result in a life that actually feels... settled.
I realize that life with Tyler Morgan will never be boring. That much seems incredibly evident. But life is unpredictable no matter what we do to try to put rules in place to keep it from feeling that way. At least with Tyler the unpredictability doesn’t seem scary. With him, as much as is possible, the unpredictability feels safe.

TYLER

Just like the beard was keeping me at a distance from the people I would see walking down the street, it was keeping me at a distance from her when we were alone together. It was an unrealized blockade impeding my ability to be as close to her as I want to be. There is no such impediment now, and I am engulfing myself inside her.
The feel of my cheeks nuzzled in between hers makes this moment seem so...sweet. It’s nice. I don’t know how else to describe it. It’s just kind of...pure. That’s how I feel. That’s what I think.
I also feel like one good rimming deserves another.
So, moving my head in tiny circles around her ass, just like she did to me a couple of days ago, I get off on the whining noises she makes, and I work two fingers inside her pussy to help everybody along. With my other hand I begin fisting my cock. I’m trying to go slowly so that I don’t fucking come right here all over the Mandarin’s nice carpet. I already burned down one of their condos, I don’t want to fuck up one of their suites too. New-look Tyler is considerate like that. But as slowly as I’m trying to go, she’s making it tough because of the way she’s rotating her ass and hips around.
And suddenly, I don’t want to be behind her. I mean, I love the view from here and I love the way she tastes, but I want to see her. I want to look at her face and have her look at mine. Yeah. I want her to look at me. I want her to see me.
So I pull away, flop down on my back on the bed beside her, and summon to her with my index finger to come over. She does, smiling as she mounts me. She takes my two fingers that were just inside her and puts them in her mouth. And I remember the first time I saw her do that. I told her, “You’re going to fucking kill me.” But she didn’t. She didn’t. It was exactly the opposite. She fucking saved me. And so now, with her astride me, I sit up, take her face in my hands, look her square in the eyes, and tell her, “I fucking love you.”
She closes her own eyes with a shy smile and whispers, “I fucking love you.”

Sin with Me (Original Sin #1) by J.A. Huss & Johnathan McClain 
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Devil in disguise...

Book one of four to be released every three weeks. There are cliffhangers in this one, but it is a short wait for the next. I love how the characters think to themselves and sometimes even out loud, often to the point of rambling, seems so realistic. They are funny and quick to the point even when dealing with awful situations. And now a bit about the story...

Tyler (aka Ford) and Maddie (aka Scarlet) are both in bad places in their lives. They are very different but at the same time, very much alike. They have a strange beginning, almost strangers with benefits. But as they start to want more everything goes crazy. Can these two strangers get to know each other or will the knowledge tear them apart.

Favorite passages:- And besides, I’m stubborn. I like to think stubbornness is my great superpower.- Do they call them strippers or dancers? Artisans of Pole Manipulation? I’m gonna call them that.

Angels Fall (Original Sin #2)  by J.A. Huss & Johnathan McClain 
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

The fall to rock bottom...

From the penthouse high above Las Vegas to the tunnels under the Hoover dam, Tyler and Maddie are back! This review does have spoilers for book one (Sin with Me), but not this story. They start right where they left off... Tyler in his burning apartment and Maddie in Carlos car headed to the desert. The series could have ended then, with them both dead, but what fun would that be? Instead Julie and Johnathan take us on a hilarious adventure with the characters continuing to search for love, forgiveness, and understanding. There are a few surprises, both good and bad, along the way. And now a bit about the story...

Tyler is rescued by his friends at the fire station, after a three minute chat with God himself. Of course he wants to chase after Maddie, but since he flat lined for those three minutes, he's off to the hospital for a full checkup. Maddie on the other hand heads back to Pete's. She's sure her car and purse are stolen so where else is there to go? Except Carlos is there waiting and he wants his money or something... Luckily she is able to negotiate more time. Now just to decide how to spend that time. She needs $185k and has to decide what to do about Tyler now that she knows he isn't Ford.

Favorite passages:
- It’s going to be okay, the angel counters.
- It strikes me suddenly that people sigh around me a lot. Like I make the whole fucking world exhausted.
- “It ain’t Starbucks. If you don’t steam the milk, there’s a buncha other girls who’ll heat it up instead.”
- And late is always better than never.

Flesh into Fire (Original Sin #3)  by J.A. Huss & Johnathan McClain 
Review by Theresa Esterline 
Stars: ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Is she crazy...

This review does have spoilers from the previous books in the series (Sin with Me and Angels Fall), but not this story. They start right where they left off... attending funerals for Pete and Jeff (the firefighter who died looking for Pete). This story shows us the crazy/brave side of Maddie. As with the first two books there is terror, humor and hot sex scenes!! Plus educational, don't roll your eyes, many words I have to look up that are not so common in today's world. And now a bit about the story...

Pete's is gone, touched by Logan. Maddie still owes Carlos and now has no job. She won't let Tyler just pay Carlos off, so now what? She connects up with a DEA agent working undercover to bring Carlos down. Only two problems 1) Carlos is in love with Maddie and she detests him and 2) Tyler is super jealous and paranoid. Which makes for one comical story... watch how this flesh turns into fire!

Favorite passages:
- The best waterpark ride in history.
- “Not everything always happens for a reason. Sometimes things just… happen.”
- He’s unpredictable. And if unpredictability doesn’t get you killed, it makes you strong.
- “I’ll sleep when I’m dead.”
