Whatever It Takes Blurb:
I HAVE A BAD REPUTATION.

Call me what you want: Bad Boy Next Door. Trouble. That Kid Who Can’t Do Anything Right.

When Willow moves into my neighborhood, nothing should have happened. She’s geeky. Shy. A true wallflower.

Willow is a good girl.

Too good for me.

And how the hell was I supposed to know that she’s related to Loren Hale—yeah, that douchebag celebrity that lives on my street. The same guy I've been pranking by spray painting vulgar words on his mailbox and worse. Much worse.

Don't ask me why I do the things I do.

Don't ask me why it had to be her.

I'm cursed. Simple as that. But here's the thing about people who are cursed—they break everything they touch.

And yet. . .I still want to touch her.

Whatever It Takes is the first book in the Bad Reputation Duet and can be read and enjoyed without reading any of Krista & Becca's other novels.

Synopsis:

Only in my family could a professional hockey player earning seven million dollars a year be considered a slacker.

I’m at the height of my athletic career. Yet my arrogant brother is always trying to recruit me into the family business: a global security company so secretive that I don’t even know its name.

Pass, thanks. I don’t need a summer job.

But the jerk ambushes me with a damsel in distress. That damsel is Alex, the competitive, sassy girl I knew when we were kids. Now she’s a drop-dead gorgeous woman in deep trouble.

So guess who’s on a flight to Hawaii?

It’s going to be a long week in paradise. My job is keeping Alex safe, while her job is torturing me with her tiny bikinis. Or maybe we’re torturing each other. It’s all snark and flirting until the threat against Alex gets serious. And this jock must become her major league protector.

Moonlighter is a stand-alone novel. No cliffhangers, no prior experience necessary. Contains: hackers, hockey players, and a hotel room with only one bed.

I am SO excited to be part of this cover reveal, you guys.  I fell in love with Bowen’s writing this summer and I haven’t looked back since.  My favorite part is that our favorite characters spring up again in other series so we never truly have to part with them.  Moonlighter is the story of Eric Bayer, one of the Brooklyn Bruisers that is mentioned in almost every previous Bruiser books, and Alex, Nate’s friend that we met in Brooklynaire.  I can’t WAIT to get my hands on this gem.

BLOGIVERSARY + GIVEAWAY – Our Darkest BBFs

the darkest

Today we’re talking about our Darkest BBFs. These men take our breath away, even with all of the darkness within them! If you haven’t met all of them yet, we hope you will! And don’t forget about our wonderful giveaways below!
PS If you missed out on our previous blogiversary posts, they were Fiercest BBFs and Kindest BBFs, and Favorite Heroines.


Aeduan from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I say darkest because he does have some dark stuff going on but….he’s always a softie inside and has a weakness for ~certain~ people, lol.

Te varuje.

I trust you as if my soul were yours.

 

 


Adam Moynihan from Every Other Weekend by Abigail Johnson
* Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

When we first meet Adam, he is in a very dark place. His eldest brother has died in a very tragic accident and as a result, his parents have separated. With this separation, he and his other brother, are required to go back and forth from his family home to his father’s apartment every other weekend. Adam is angry at the world, blames his father for his crumbling family and is constantly arguing with his brother. Adam’s salvation comes in the form of his neighbor Jolene, who is also required to spend time at her father’s apartment every other weekend. Over time, Adam begins to adapt to his situation and even tries to correct it, but he also knows that he’s risking his relationship with Jolene if his family reunites and the visits to the apartment complex cease. How much more tortured and star-crossed can you get?

He stopped halfway inside the building and took a deep breath without taking his eyes from me. Then he dropped his bag to the floor and crossed the lobby in three long strides, sending my heart pounding. His arms went around me, and my feet were lifted from the ground as his face was buried in my shoulder. If he noticed how I stiffened when he embraced me, he didn’t show it. “I really needed you to be here, right here. I wouldn’t have made it another step. How’d you know that?”

Dante from Legendary (Caraval #2) by Stephanie Garber
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

“If you’re here to learn about Legend,” he said, “I can tell you more than anyone inside there.”

“Would you tell me who he is?” Tella asked.

“You know I can’t do that.” 

“You could if you were Legend.” 

Dante’s voice rumbled with a laugh. “If I was Legend I’d definitely never tell you.” 

“Because you don’t trust me?” 

“No,” he answered slowly, gently tugging her even closer. “I’d hold on to my secret because I’d want to keep playing the game with you, and if I told you the truth it would spoil all the fun.”

 
 

Vicious from Vicious (Sinners of Saint #1) by LJ Shen
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads

“I want you,” he said simply. “Just you. Nothing else. Only ever you,” he breathed out in pain, closing his eyes. “Fuck, Emilia. You.”

 

Penn from Pretty Reckless by L.J. Shen
* Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I love you, Daria Followhill, and I think you love me, too. In fact, I think we fell at the same time. You, like rain, in drizzles, over the weeks. Me, like the fucking sky above my head, all at once, crashing without the faintest chance of stopping.

Christian Allister from The Maddest Obsession (Made #2) by Danielle Lori
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Christian Allister was a Fed who was involved in the mafia.  His many shades of grey bled together and lead him again and again to the dark side.   He was cold, calculated and in control.  Yet it was impossible for me not to love him, especially when he was around Gianna and let his guard down for a second.  Christian was seductive, dark, protective and I was obsessed with him.

His hand on me, rough, and covered in the blood of all his enemies— and most likely innocents— shouldn’t affect me the way it did. But I was burning up, and I needed more. So much more.

 
 

Her Husband from Soul in Darkness by Wendy Higgins
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Psyche was fated to marry a monster who was described as a dark-deeded winged serpent.  Yet her husband wasn’t anything like she expected.  He was compassionate, heartfelt, listened and tried to make her happy, I absolutely loved her husband.  I want to say sooooooo much more but I can’t, you just have to read the book. ♥ 

 “I cannot say all the things I wish to say.” His voice was deeper and huskier than ever, sending a ripple through me. “But if you listen, Psyche, listen to my touch…perhaps you will hear.”

female leads

Since we’ve already had two posts talking about our Fiercest BBFs and Kindest BBFs, today we’re going to talk about some of Our Favorite Female Heroines.

Evie from The Darkest Star (Origin #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I had no clue how I would feel towards Evie, aka Evelyn Dasher.  Her father played a horrific role in The Lux Series and I hated him with a passion.  But right from that first page, I loved Evie.  She was just so relatable, logical, sweet, kind and had the hugest heart ever.  Plus I loved that she didn’t just fall for Luc either, she made him work for it!

Our stares connected , and the effect was instantaneous. Everything around us faded, and there was just us, and this . . . this sensation of falling. I couldn’t look away as this feeling surfaced, rushing to the top.
I’ve been here before.
My breath caught as a wave of tight shivers rippled over my skin. That thought didn’t make sense. I hadn’t been here with him before.

 

Sunny from Sunset Rising (Sunset Rising #1) by S.M. McEachern
*Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

I loved Sunny right away!  She was fierce, brave and extremely loyal.  Plus I loved her endurance, strength and how she always worked at making herself better.  She was someone people could look up to and respect, so I instantly connected with her. 

My voice caught on hitch as tears stung my eyes, and I shook my head and silently admonished myself because crying was such a weak thing to do. And there was no room for weakness in the Pit.

 

Psyche from Soul in Darkness by Wendy Higgins
* Review * Amazon * Goodreads *

Psyche proved herself that she was born to be a queen, when she agreed to marry a monster to help her village.  She was brave, spirited, determined, smart and I absolutely loved her!

All I knew for a fact was that if he was an enemy, he was the most dangerous enemy possible, because when I was with him, my heart, my body, and my soul wanted him.

 

 

Franny from The Raging Ones (The Raging Ones #1) by Krista and Becca Ritchie
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

I LOVEDDD Franny so much.  She grows so much into herself as the series progresses and I loved watching her grow into her potential.  I loved that she questioned everything and wouldn’t rest until she got answers. Most of all, I loved the closeness she had with Court and Mykal and then her friends at Stardust and eventually Stork, too.

 

 

Safi from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

She is SO badass and has the funniest insults of all times!

“Yes,” Safi breathed, swaying into one of the men holding her up. She flashed a grin at him and said, “I’m Safiya fon Hasstrel, and I can do anything.”

 
 

Iseult from The Witchlands Series by Susan Dennard
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Our OTHER resident badass.  I love the friendship between Safi and Iseult.  Might be one of my favorites in a series of all time!
 

“I hate this. Both the storm and the plan. Why does it have to be ‘we’? Why not just me?”

“Because ‘just me’ isn’t who we are,” Iseult hollered back. “I’ll always follow you, Safi, and you’ll always follow me. Threadsisters to the end.”

 
 

Mare from House of Salt and Sorrows by Erin A. Craig
* Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

This book honestly came out of nowhere and absolutely surprised me in the best possibly way. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC and after the first chapter, I was absolutely hooked. One of the main reasons was how much I loved the main character, Annaleigh. Here is a girl who has lived through unspeakable tragedy, with multiple members of her family dying, many under mysterious circumstances. But nonetheless, she still continues to fight for her family and tries to figure out what is happening to her and her family. I loved Annaleigh’s dedication and concern for her sisters and her blossoming relationship with Cassius, but most of all, I loved how strong and brave she was, even under the most dire circumstances.

Evie from The Diviners (The Diviners #1) by Libba Bray
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Some mornings, she’d wake and vow, Today, I will get it right. I won’t be such an awful mess of a girl. I won’t lose my temper or make unkind remarks. I won’t go too far with a joke and feel the room go quiet with disapproval. I’ll be good and kind and sensible and patient. The sort everyone loves.

But by evening, her good intentions would have unraveled.

 

Celia from The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

Celia is hard to quote because…everything she and Marco say is so magnificent and bold and beautiful…and the story is shrouded in mystery. So what quote? This one just stuck with me, and I really loved it…Celia has a way of putting simple statements into words that I, myself, could not have expressed so perfectly. 

“You’re in the right place at the right time, and you care enough to do what needs to be done. Sometimes that’s enough.”

 

 

Claire from Outlander (Outlander #1) by Diana Gabaldon
*Review * Amazon * Book Depository * Goodreads *

They’re both wonderful quotes of fragility and fierce determination she can’t quite conquer, in these moments.  Otherwise she’s a bossy boots. I love her!

…to step outside the group, let alone to stand against it, was for uncounted thousands of years death to the creature who dared it. To stand against a crowd would take something more than ordinary courage; something that went beyond human instinct. And I feared I did not have it, and fearing, was ashamed.

***

I felt as fragile and as brilliant as the glass, as though I would shatter with a touch, and fall in glittering fragments to the floor. If I had meant to spare either Jamie’s emotions or my own, it seemed I was very much too late
