‘Be brave and run fast’

The above piece of advice and her need for revenge are the two driving forces of Jersey Six’s life ever since she made the decision to live on the streets rather than be placed in another deplorable foster care situation like the ones that have already scarred her in irreparable ways. And while things haven’t been easy for her, she’s learned to fend for herself, taking desperate measures to accomplish small feats when necessary and doing everything she can not to give up on herself or become just another homeless orphan who got lost in the system, never seeming to have her best interests at heart, and lost in an environment that seemed to continually destroy her hopes and dreams, easily bringing her to her knees without any assistance to help her get back up.

Jersey is definitely a flawed character – one who is a product of her dark, dangerous, and devastating environment. But Jersey refuses to be a victim of her circumstances, which means that she uses her experiences, her flaws, her snark, and her scars as armor, protecting her from those who would use her or hurt her without a second thought. That’s not to say that she hasn’t taken some missteps and found herself in situations where she’s lost bits and pieces of herself and her soul, but Jersey won’t go down without a fight nor will she give up her quest for revenge because it’s what defines her and keeps her moving when it seems easier to just give up.

This story is as unpredictable and complex as its heroine, which makes it necessary for readers to always keep in mind what Jersey is willing to do to achieve her end goal, even if it means putting herself on a path that there may not be any coming back from, but while her decisions and actions are highly questionable, in some ways, because of how Jersey grew up and what she was involuntarily put through, she doesn’t see things in black and white; in fact, she lives squarely in the grey area, which some people would never understand.   

I do have to admit…it took me a bit to get into the story, and then, once I did, I needed to sift through and understand a large amount of information – details that were not delivered in a straightforward way, which meant that all of the unexpected twists and turns that occurred had to be sorted and manipulated in ways that made sense, and that took some time and quite a bit of concentration. But in the end, it was clear that the non-sequential plot line fed into the complete dysfunction of Jersey and of her plan, which, after the fact, became so much clearer.

Jersey Six was my first read by Jewel E. Ann, and it most definitely won’t be my last because she’s a unique storyteller who takes risks that I can appreciate when it comes to non-linear plot lines and drastically flawed characters, and anytime I can read books that go against the grain, even if only slightly, those are exactly the kind of books I’d choose.

4 Poison Apples Review


“We ate at the hotel.” Her lips twisted to the side. “Mind if I stick some stuff in my bag for later?”

A tiny wrinkle formed between Ian’s eyes, just below the long sweep of his black bangs. “There will be lots of food available later too. But…” he shrugged, leaning forward and resting his elbows on his knees “…take whatever you want.”

Jersey glanced over her shoulder at the food and the three other men in the room. She decided to wait a little while before shoving as much as possible into her bag like a free-for-all. “Thanks.” Jersey returned her attention to Ian. “So … you’re a singer. Like … are you a big deal?”

Every word she spoke seemed to feed his level of happiness. “Well …” He rubbed his chin, twisting his lips. “We play music. People like to listen to our music. But no … it’s not a big deal. We’re not saving lives or anything like that.”

She eyed him with suspicion for a few seconds. That smile of his didn’t feel worthy of complete trust. “Um … what exactly do you need me to do? What’s my job? They already took Chris. Will that big, bearded guy come for me too?” Jersey couldn’t remember his name.

“No.” Ian stood, pushing his elbows out from his shoulders, twisting side to side. “Tonight you are just going to watch the concert from backstage. Tomorrow night you’ll sell merchandise.”

“Drugs. You mean drugs, don’t you?”

Ian paused his stretching, letting his arms fall limp to his sides. “Merchandise—T-shirts, posters, keychains, phone cases, hats, guitar pics …”

“To who?”

“Fans.” Ian grinned. “Okay. I might have understated all of this to you … can you name a famous singer? Old or new. Doesn’t matter. Just a famous singer.”

“I had a foster parent who used to listen to Josh Groban.” Jersey gnashed her teeth, still feeling so much anger. Dena wasn’t just a foster parent; she was Jersey’s friend.

“Okay. Well, Josh has sold millions of records, and he’s a huge star in his genre of music. Thousands of people pack venues all over the world to see him sing live in concert. And they sell merchandise of his at those concerts.”

Jersey gazed unblinkingly at Ian as he scratched his jaw.

“Well, I sing a different genre of music, but I, too, travel the world, singing to sold-out concert venues, andI have people who sell my merchandise at these concerts.”

Jersey dropped her bag to her feet and planted her fists on her hips. “Listen, Coop. Stop talking down to me. I’m not an idiot. I know what a concert is. But earlier today you didn’t say what you did or what the job was you were offering. You bought a homeless person a hot dog and offered her a job. Of course, I’m going to think something sketchy might be involved.”

Tipping her chin up, she held her breath to puff out her chest, pretending the recent revelation of Ian Cooper being a famous singer didn’t faze her one bit. Inside, Jersey’s heart hammered into her ribcage, and her mind reeled trying to figure out the day’s events.

“Coop?” His lips twitched into a tiny grin.

“It’s short for Cooper.”

“Clearly.” Ian chuckled. “But my name is Ian. Everyone calls me Ian.”

“I busted the nose and jaw of a kid named Ian. He tried to stick his cock in my ass. I’ll call you Tom, Dick, or Harry, but I’m not calling you Ian because that makes me want to physically harm you.”

Ian’s eyebrows shot up his forehead as his head whipped back a few inches. “Coop it is.”

About Black Sheep

Every family has a black sheep.

In the infamous Casso crime family, that black sheep is me—Cannon Freeman.

Except I’m not a free man. I’ve never been free. Not since the day I was born.

I owe my loyalty to my father, Dominic Casso, even if he won’t publicly acknowledge me as his blood.

I’ve never had a reason to go against his wishes… until I met her.

Drew Carson turned my world upside when she walked into my club looking for a job.

Now, my honor and my life are on the line.

Going against my father’s wishes might buy me a bullet straight from his gun, but black sheep or not, it’s time to make my stand.

She’s worth the fallout.

BLOG TOUR REVIEW: Written With You by Aly Martinez

WWY - BT banner.jpg

“Aly Martinez is one of the best in the business. You have to read her books.” –Meghan March, New York Times Bestselling Author

Written With You, the emotional and highly anticipated conclusion to The Regret Duet from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez, is available now!

WW You FOR WEB.jpg

When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me.

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

My Review

“I don’t believe there is a reason for anything that happens. There are only actions, consequences, and unorchestrated coincidences. But every now and then, after the pain and heartache settle, beauty can be found in the consequences.”

Beauty…that’s something that the hero and heroine of Aly Martinez’s The Regret Duet haven’t had much of for most of their lives due to other people’s malicious intentions and machinations. But while their pasts still very much define their present and make everything that’s happened overwhelming and confusing, there’s also a bond there – one that hopefully will sustain them through the pain, the devastation, and the uncontrollable emotions and memories that still carry an incredible amount of weight in determining how they proceed.

But regardless of how much time these two have spent apart, their lives were written with each other since their initial tragic interaction and while they’ve had to wade through so much baggage and too many elephants threatening to trample them, they’re alive…they’re together and that has to be enough…AND, it so is because when they add in a giggling and beyond precious 4 year old who loves them with all of her heart, they can’t be anything but, and even though their scars will always be with them, they can let go of the guilt and the regret that once consumed them as long as they remember that living and feeling are exactly what those they loved and lost would want them to do.

Aly Martinez is a phenomenal writer who seamlessly weaves suspense, drama, and passion together in a way that readers can’t help but be consumed with, and her latest duet, Written with Regret and Written with You, is everything that I’ve grown to love about Martinez’s storytelling and character development as well as the twists and turns she takes readers on as they attempt to figure out how the plot’s conflicts will be resolved and let me tell you, the ending of this duet is something I never saw coming, which is exactly why I adored it!

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

RELEASE BLITZ: Broken With You by J. Kenner

BWY - RB bannerTrue love never fades…

Broken With You, the next suspenseful tale in the all-new Stark Security series of standalones, from New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner, is available now!


After surviving a troubled childhood, Denise can’t believe that she’s blissfully married to her partner and soulmate. She’s confident that not even Mason’s long-term, deep-cover assignment will shake their bond. And she certainly doesn’t anticipate that when he finally walks back through her door that he’ll have no memory of her, himself, or their time together…

When Mason is pulled out of an operation gone bad, all he knows is what he’s told — that he was a covert agent, that he has information vital to national security somewhere in his head, and that they can tell him no more for fear of burying those hard-fought secrets even further. They tell him nothing else; not even that the beautiful woman who makes his heart beat faster is not just his partner, but also his wife.

The secret she must keep wrecks Denise, who wants only to return to Mason’s arms. But despite the desire that still burns hot between them, she can’t tell him who she is—or that she’s carrying his child.

But when dark forces threaten both their lives in order to retrieve the information trapped in Mason’s mind, it’s not their past that will be tested, but the tenuous new love now burning hot between them.

You don’t want to miss this sexy, suspenseful amnesia romance!

My Review

After being introduced to Denise ‘Denny’ Walker in Quincy and Eliza’s book, I was so ready for her story; I loved her grit, her snark, and her ability to get the job done by any means necessary. But all of her training and intelligence couldn’t prepare her for her next mission because, this time, it’s personal and her future as well as the future of her marriage depend on her ability to hide her overwhelming emotions and help Mason remember the information that’s locked in his head that he spent the last two years of his life retrieving, and until the objective is achieved, Denny’s left in limbo, hoping that her husband remembers her and that those who do not want the details unlocked from Mason’s head don’t get their revenge before his memory returns.

Because J. Kenner provides readers with both Denny and Mason’s perspectives, we’re able to see firsthand how they’re dealing with the complications of Mason’s amnesia, and Denny’s fears as well as the pain and frustration that they both feel as Denny works with Mason to figure out who he is and what he knows while also being forced to not reveal what they mean to each other, and with so much at stake, both personally and professionally, it’s quite a taxing journey for the characters as well as the story’s readers because the fallout could keep Denny and Mason broken and apart while still dealing with the threat to Mason’s life due to what he can’t seem to remember.

The way that Kenner crafts and builds Denny and Mason’s story allows readers to become emotionally invested in the characters’ lives, feeling every single emotion as they feel them and questioning whether these two will be able to move forward together or dwell too much on the parts of their lives Mason can’t remember. Denny definitely shows just how mentally strong she is as she watches her husband struggle to find the missing/broken details of his life while also working to uncover the pertinent information that could quite possibly get both of them killed.

It doesn’t matter where J. Kenner takes me in her Stark World; I will gladly follow her and her characters anywhere. And I am loving her Stark Security series. I love romantic suspense and Kenner definitely knows how to utilize all of the genre’s components in a way that heightens the tension, maximizes the uneasiness, and unravels the various plot lines of the conflict in a way that keeps readers guessing on what will happen up until the moment when everything reaches its climax and the fallout must be dealt with in a way that puts all the broken pieces back together, even if they’re a bit bent and/or incomplete.

4.5 Poison Apples Review

RELEASE REVIEW: Letters to Molly by Devney Perry

Molly Alcott didn’t expect to open her mailbox one summer morning and find an old letter stuffed between bills and a supermarket flyer. Penned in familiar handwriting, dated over fifteen years ago, the letter was written to Molly after her first date with the man she’ll never forget.

Week after week, new letters appear. Each marks an event in the history of their epic love affair. Each heals a wound. Each holds the confession of the man who still owns Molly’s heart.

The letters are full of promise, hope and love, but truth be told, Molly wishes she could unread them all.

Because the man who wrote these letters is not the one sending them.

My Review

‘But there’s a danger in loving somebody too much,

and it’s bad when you know it’s your heart you can’t trust.

There’s a reason why people don’t stay where they are.

Baby, sometimes love just ain’t enough.’

Patty Smyth’s “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough”

The idea that two people who truly love each other, who seem made for one another, who are soulmates in every sense of the word struggle to stay together due to a litany of circumstances and external influencers is not necessarily a foreign concept to me, but it’s one that I find difficult to truly understand.

And I’m sure it makes me naive and in some ways impractical to believe that love should sustain even the most difficult of relationships, but I wholeheartedly feel that love should be enough, even when I’m confronted with contrary evidence to my claim.

Letters to Molly is an emotionally dense story line – one that examines all sides of Molly and Finn’s story as it explores the details of their growing love that solidified into a blissful marriage and a family they both desperately wanted to the missteps and heartbreak that seemed to take over their lives after the death of a loved one and the destructive path chosen to not only deal with said loss but also to  attempt to move on from bad decisions and extenuating circumstances that altered the dynamics of their lives.

There are so many integral parts to Molly and Finn’s story to explore in order for readers to truly understand the why’s and how’s of their broken marriage despite the love that still exists between them, and Devney Perry provides those necessary details in excruciatingly vivid scenes and all of the heartbreaking and heartwarming moments the main characters experience as they try to move on with their lives, separately, while still loving one another with every part of who they are and will be.

The written word is a powerful testament to how people truly feel; there’s meaning in every word put on paper and an honesty that may not be found anywhere else, and this is exactly what the letters to Molly hold, and while Finn is not the one sending them to her, it doesn’t negate the fact that the words, the sentences, and the paragraphs in those letters are spoken from his heart and shed light on the array of feelings that consumed him both at the beginning of their courtship as well as when things felt hopeless and out of control. 

Even towards the end of Letters to Molly, I didn’t know if these two would be able to find their way back to each other, not after all the pain they’ve caused one another and the regrets and guilt that still seem to weigh them down, threatening to break them even farther. And I also can’t imagine the emotional toil that Devney Perry went through as she crafted this story, but I can say with 100% certainty that she gave voice to a story that needed to be told because despite the heavy burden of emotions that more than likely plagued many a reader, there are lessons in painfully emotional stories just as much as, if not more, than those where the characters don’t struggle and don’t need more than one chance to make things right.
