Erotica and suspense that gripped my soul from the beginning . . .

Synopsis for The Queen

Once upon a time, there was a wholesome young princess who ruled her kingdom in grace and purity . . .

This isn’t that story.

Octavia is a naughty, snarky, young princess that is always looking for a good time. But, in a single night, a greedy, bloodthirsty enemy changes her world forever.

Now that she’s in control, the rebellious princess is trying to escape the terrors of her past by becoming the Queen of Pleasure. Decadence and debauchery sum up the days in her world, and being the Queen of Pleasure comes with benefits! Her favorite on is having the choice of the fairest gentlemen in the land to be her private “playthings.” All seemed well in her kingdom of pleasure pain.

Tragedy is about to strike a second time, forcing this hedonistic monarch to embrace her dark past, and to realize the full potential running through her veins. In order to destroy the familiar enemy who once shook her world, she will need to gather those closest to her, and learn to lean on her newest “plaything” . . . Who is not all that he seems.

Blood is sweet, but revenge is sweeter when you’re . . . The Queen

Synopsis for Hybrid

Who am I? Everyone has their opinion of who I am.

The Queen thinks I’m her favorite pet. Lachlaan Mortas thinks I’m his biggest mistake. The Queen’s men think I’m their brother. The Carpe Noctem thinks I’m a useful tool.

Who do I think I am? Cast aside. Unwanted. Freak. Cursed. Full of sins.

But there are some things about me that I am certain of . . .

I am in love with Octavia, the Queen of Drishane. And my bastard father does not know what kind of vengeance I am about to bring down on him for the pain he has caused Octavia. He has no idea exactly what he allowed to live or what I am capable of.

But I do. Because I know who I am. I am unique . . . I am Hybrid.

Review

I don’t even know what to say. I read both of these books in 2 days. I could not put them down. They were intriguing. The Queen was erotic, dramatic, and suspenseful, with a cliffhanger . . .

Hybrid was more suspenseful and dramatic than The Queen. I loved it more than the first book, I fell in love her boys. I want more. I want to know more about her boys. Like I said, I could not put them down. I was sad when it ended, but I hope there are more, because it definitely left a cliff hanger.

Dumplin by Julie Murphy

Synopsis

The #1 New York Times bestseller and feel-good YA of the year – about Willowdean Dixon, the fearless, funny, and totally unforgettable heroine who takes on her small town’s beauty pageant.

Self-proclaimed fat girl Willowdean Dickson (dubbed “Dumplin” by her former beauty queen mom) has always been at home in her own skin. Her thoughts on having the ultimate bikini body? Put a bikini on your body.

With her all-American beauty best friend, Ellen, by her side, things have always worked . . . Until Will takes a job at Harpy’s, the local fast-food joint. There she meets Private School Bo, a hot former jock. Will isn’t surprised to find herself attracted to Bo. But she is surprised when he seems to like her back.

Instead of finding new heights of self-assurance in her relationship with Bo, Will starts to doubt herself. So she sets out to take back her confidence by doing the most horrifying thing she can imagine: entering the Miss Clover City beauty pageant – along with several other unlikely candidates – to show the world that she deserves to be up there as much as any girl does.

Along the way, she’ll shock the hell out of Clover City – and maybe herself most of all.

Review

I have seen the movie and read the book (I read the book first). I remember seeing it on the shelf in Target when I had to kill time before an appointment. I could not put the book down. I raved about it to my husband.

And, all of a sudden, we were scrolling through one of our apps on our Roku (I literally forgot if it was Netflix of Amazon), and they had it on there! My whole family watched it with me. It was amazing!

I liked both versions of this story. The characters in the movie, I saw differently in my head, but that is besides the point. I loved Jennifer Aniston as her mom, and I loved the girl who played Dumplin.

I recommend this book (and the movie) to anyone (obviously my family enjoyed the movie) . . . Give them a try, you won’t be disappointed.
