Dandelion Meadows is cursed.
Horrible name.
Horrible luck.

At eighteen she should be headed off to college, all smiles and naivety.
Instead, a victim of a school shooting, she’s starting her senior year in a new city and living with her brother.
Nightmares of that terrible day haunt her, affecting her daily life and the relationships around her.
Forced to meet with the school counselor, Dani finds him chipping away at the walls she’s built around herself, and even her heart.

Lachlan Taylor doesn’t know what to make at first of the broken student he’s tasked with helping. She’s survived a trauma he’s not sure he can save her from, but he knows he has to try.

The more time they spend together, the more they learn about what it really means to live.

Some things are forbidden.
Some things are necessary for survival.

Their love is both.


Sweet Dandelion by Micalea Smeltzer was a beautifully tragic and angsty as f*ck forbidden romance that wholeheartedly captivated every inch of my soul. My heart gave off this painfully intense ache the entire time I was reading and it has yet to disappear even weeks after reaching the end. The author’s storytelling ability will cause you to experience an emotional overload as you devour all of the words of this addictive tale. You will laugh, cry, swoon, and shout out in frustration more time than you can count throughout this unique journey of healing.

Dandelion “Dani” Meadows and Lachlan Taylor have stolen a special place in my heart and I never wanted their story to reach its end. Their love was destined to be complicated and those heartbreaking moments left me breathless at times. Lachlan had my entire body swooning in overdrive because of his compassionate demeanor towards Dani. I mean come on, why do all the good guys have to be fictional? I want my very own Mr. Taylor and I want to one day find a man who make me feel as loved as he made Dani feel. One can only hope! Their journey will test even the strongest and you will surely find yourself overwhelmed by the emotions you will experience.

This story was EVERYTHING and I am so FREAKING excited that you all can FINALLY get your hands on one of my TOP READS of 2020! This is hands down one of Micalea Smeltzer’s best stories to date and it makes me so happy to see how far she has come as a storyteller over the years. With each new release, I find myself falling even more in love with her writing and the characters she is creating for us. Make sure to clear your ENTIRE scheduled for the day so you can read all the words in one sitting because you won’t be able to put it down!!!

“Tragedy brought us together, but something stronger made me want to stay.”

Julian was the boy next door. My brother’s best friend, he fit with my family in ways I never could. While he and Rhett went on to play house, I left the only life I knew, desperate for a fresh start.

Until everything changed.

Heartache came along, and the aftermath of my brother’s death was here to stay. I was now face to face with Julian more than I ever wanted to be.

Being around him brought up all my insecurities, forced me to deal with hard truths, and conjured up feelings I had no business entertaining. He wasn’t the man I thought I knew. He was complex and layered, and inherently beautiful in all the ways I’d never noticed.

Not on another person.

Not on another man.

Not until him.


Marley Valentine’s storytelling ability was absolutely flawless and she ignited every part of my body as I devoured this addictively captivating M/M romance. Ever since reading her very first M/M romance last year, I have been begging her to write more books in this genre and she FINALLY gave me…I mean us, exactly what we wanted!

Without You is a MUST read for all fans of M/M romance! Not a fan? Haven’t tried M/M before? I totally recommend diving into this story even if those obtain to you because by the time you reach the end, YOU WILL BE! Instantly I found myself falling into a deep connection with our two leading men, Deacon and Julian, and my heart wept for the loss they had to endured that led to their connection. The author’s storytelling ability was breathtakingly phenomenal and I couldn’t get enough of the emotional connection that was formed throughout the course of the story. Every moment that these two spent together had my heart swooning in overdrive the entire time. These two gave me LIFE and I don’t think I will every let them go! They are FOREVER and ALWAYS part of my heart. Their story was so beautiful and it had me smiling wide as I inhaled all of the words.

[Oh and in case you are wondering the name of that book I mentioned is DEVILRY and if you have yet to read it make sure to do so like RIGHT AWAY because this story proves how PERFECTLY matched she is with this genre and why she should totally give us more M/M romance…like yesterday 😉]

Brix - Cover

Brix by Brooke O’Brien
Series: Rebels Havoc #1
Genres: New Adult, Romance
Release Date: February 28, 2020
Buy Now: Amazon | B&N | Kobo


There’s a fine line between love and hate, and it’s about to be set on fire.

Brix Ward is a Grade A prick.

He’s arrogant, spoiled, and self-centered. As the lead singer of A Rebels Havoc, he’s used to women falling over themselves for a chance to tame the wild bad boy.

Except for me.

I still remember the boy I grew up with. The one who went out of his way to make my life a living hell. I did my best to avoid him at all costs.

Imagine my surprise when our parents announced they had eloped, then left me to live with my new stepbrother. Alone.

Now, no matter what I do, there’s no escaping him. He’s always there, tempting me, provoking me. Every moment of every day. The more we’re around each other, the more the heat between us begins to rise.

If he thinks he can hurt me again, he’s dead wrong.

I won’t let him be the one to destroy me, even if it breaks my heart.


Brix is the first book in Brooke O’Brien’s brand new Rebels Havoc series and it was everything I love in a good forbidden step siblings romance! This story was an addictively sexy and steamy romance that burned me up inside and out. I am still trying to rid myself of this deep ache in my chest after inhaling all the words. I was living for every moment of this sinful story and I could not get enough of Brix and Ivy’s banter. These two were made for each other and oh my goodness did their chemistry set my heart on FIRE! I just couldn’t get enough of them and I was so sad when their story ended, but at least we will get to see more of them soon with the rest of the books in this standalone series!

Brix is your typical bad boy rockstar that ends up falling for Ivy, the girl that has been right in front of him all those years, even though he never realized…until it might have been too late. In the beginning I so did NOT want to like him at all, but Brooke O’Brien just has this way with words that makes you fall in love with even the most flawed of characters. He ended up capturing every fractured piece of my heart and soul…even if I wanted to punch him in the face a time or two.

Oh and don’t even get me started on my girl crush of Ivy! She is my spirt gal and I freaking loved her sassy personality and the vulnerability she was willing to expose to the man she found herself hating to love. She was so strong, but even the strongest person can break when faced with reality. Ivy was EVERYTHING and I couldn’t get enough of her story. She deserved a happily ever after, even with all the twists and turns that stood in their way.

Brooke O’Brien is a beautiful storyteller and you can discover that now when you pick up your copy of Brix today! Like seriously go do it RIGHT NOW!!!
