C.J's debut novel, Affairytale 

I had an affair. The most forbidden and seductive affair, and fell in Love. 

He was a rare gentleman, intelligent and gorgeous; a man every woman desired. Every cell in my body was telling me that he was my happily ever after. I was stuck in a marriage of mediocrity, I ached for red silk romance and carry me away passion, but not with my husband. I craved Him. Living without him was cruel and unusual punishment, even for my wandering heart. 

Affairytale is a tantalizing memoir of sultry encounters, hidden grottos and secret hillside cabins. From the Land of Ten Thousand Lakes to the Southern shores of Maui you’ll fall in love with this tell-all memoir that pulls back the veil on infidelity and gives you rare look into hearts and bedroom of a real life extramarital affair. Woven with original love letters and scandalous text messages, this engrossing true love story is sure to break then win your heart. 

True Love always finds a way. starts with an affair. 

What inspired you to write such a personal book?

I was actually writing a weight loss/cookbook when Affairytale wouldn’t leave me alone! I dont know exactly what the initial spark of inspiration was, but once it was there, it wouldn’t let me sleep at night until I was finished.

Did you find it hard to put such intimate details about yourself out there for others to read?

At first, yes. But early on in the writing process I decided that if I was going to do this, I would do it as wholeheartedly as I could and not hold back. I cringed at myself many times for the things I did and wrote, but ultimately made peace with telling it like it happened no matter the consequences or embarrassing moments.

For the most part this was your story with Grant and your feelings alone. Did you leave Levi and Dani out of most of the story to protect them or was it to focus the story on your feelings about Grant?

Thank you for asking. The absence of Dani in the book did not mean the absence of Dani in my life. I choose to keep her out as much as possible for her sake, and for the readers. Carving pumpkins and watching chick flicks wouldn’t have made for a very thrilling read.

Regarding Levi, I put as much in about Levi and our time together as was necessary for the reader to get a good picture of what was real, then nothing more. I wrote volumes more than what was published, and out of respect for Levi those memories will stay only with me.

I actually really liked that it was you on the cover of the book because I could picture you clearly while reading and didn't have to make up my own image. What was the reason you chose to be your own cover model?

Thank you! I too like seeing a picture of the character right away so I know what they look like as I read. I dont want to have to make them up in my head. I didn’t put myself on the cover for that reason but I’m glad it turned out to be a perk in that way.

To maintain the truthfulness of the story, I felt it appropriate to put the real people of the story on the cover. I contemplated hiring models, even looked for some but I never found the right ones and it just didn’t feel right putting fake characters on a non-fiction memoir.

The only picture out there that is not me, is the one with the piano in the background. I was 8 months pregnant when we took those photos and would have broken the piano had I sat down on it! A friend stood in for me on that one. All of the other cover and promo shots of me and Grant are on the affairytalebook pinterest site as well as my stand in and my 8 month prego belly!

Meaning no offense, but cheating is a touchy subject for most people and they don't agree with it. How do you deal with the negativity that comes from writing such a book?

Glad you asked the question, and I don’t mean for my answer to sound snotty. However I’d like to point out the inconsistencies in how people feel about cheating depending on what medium they are absorbing it from. For example, Scandal, the #1 show in the country, revolves entirely around cheating. Grey’s Anatomy captivated us for 11 seasons and the whole female world fell in love with a cheating couple falling in love. So why is it that when there is cheating in books, it is perceived and often loathed, but not when it’s on TV? I highlight this observation because it makes me wonder what the real motives are when someone criticizes a book about an affair yet their evening plans include a bottle of wine and Scandal on the DVR?

The criticism I’ve received has been surprisingly less than I expected. The individuals critical of my past actions and behavior don't personally bother me, I’m more hurt when someone hates the writing!

Looking back, do you think you should have spilt with Levi sooner since you were so unhappy?

Yes. But mostly for his sake.I wish I would have had the self-confidence, strength and support to get out sooner instead of staying and making us both miserable. Maybe someone else in that situation would have been stronger and able to get out, I’d be in awe of their courage and strength. I wish I could have been that brave at the time.

Part of the book focused on your struggle with your back pain, how is your back doing today?

Whoop!Whoop! Pain free baby! Pain free.

I’d kiss that surgeon’s feet every day if I could. He saved my life. It’s been 5 years this summer since the surgery and my back has held up through two pregnancies and is doing well.

Do you have any advice for people in a similar situation as yours?

Do the best that you can do for the moment you're in. If you can say you did that, then have no regrets.

Are you working on anything else for us?

Yes. I’m working on the possibility of leaving my day job so I can write more! Every writer's dream right? Then I can finish the next book in less than 3 years.

Fun Questions
Favorite genre to read?


Favorite vacation spot?

Hawaii AND Alaska

Favorite food?

Mexican. Always Mexican.

Cats or Dogs?


E-book or Paperback?


Winter or Summer?

Only with a bloody corona and the man of my dreams otherwise I don't love it. Summer.

Do I like non-fiction books? No. Do I like cheating in my books? No. But I loved this book!

This is a story of pain, loss, and love. C.J made a mistake when she was young and that mistake resulted in a loveless marriage and feelings of hopelessness. C.J and Levi grew apart from each other but both felt obligated to stay in the relationship. 

The summer that C.J met Grant there was an instant attraction and she found herself crushing on him. Thinking about him all the time and secretly hoping that their playful flirting could one day turn into more. And it did...
I was a little weary about reading this because it is the real life story of C.J's love life. So as I write this review I'm not just judging the book, in a way I'm judging her. I kept hearing how amazing the story was and that it would be worth a try but was still iffy about it. But then when C.J contacted me about reviewing it I felt like it was fates way of telling me I was meant to read this story, and I am so glad I listened. 

"I wanted to find someone who belonged with me like the stars belonged with the sky."

Reading about the fights and the horrible things that were yelled back and forth between Levi and C.J was eye opening. A part of me wanted to pick a side and feel bad for one of them while hating the other, but it just wasn't possible. The marriage wasn't perfect by any means and it was a little cringe worthy to think about being so unhappy with someone that at one time you thought you would spend your life with. It amazes me that C.J was so willing to put her thoughts and words from this time on paper for everyone to read, and I have to give her props for being so courageous. 

After reading this, I truly believe that Grant is C.J's soul mate. I'm a person that believes we all have that other half of us out there, and it may not be a romantic relationship we have with them, but they exist. We just can't all be as lucky as C.J and find them. Her love for Grant was like a real life fairytale, it just took a little work to get the happily ever after.

"Levi was the man I couldn't live with, and Grant was the man I couldn't live without."Affairytale isn't just the memoirs of C.J, it's also a love story and a story that gives hope to those who need it. It shows that real love isn't as easy as books and movies and music make it out to be. You may go through heartbreak and have to jump over obstacles, but you will eventually find the one. You just have to be patient.

Personally, when I read, I do it to take me away from reality and to give me an escape when I need it. This wasn't just another work of fiction, though, yet it still managed to do the same. Only on a deeper level because I knew it was a true story and I actually liked having that knowledge while reading.

I'm going to say the clichéd thing that every reviewer has said at least once in their life - I could not put this book down! It drew me in from the second I read the prologue and I wanted to smack everyone that interrupted me while I was reading. This writing was lyrical and flows through you like a song. I can't describe it any other way than that. 

I would like to just say that C.J and Grant don't actually sleep together until after C.J has moved out and left Levi. I usually hate cheating in books but I didn't have a problem with the affair in this one. I think everyone should give this book a try and not let the cheating aspect stop you.

Add to Goodreads

 Never in your wildest dreams could you begin to imagine all the filthy and depraved things that go on inside The Wicked Horse. Step inside and Woolf Jennings will make every one of your dirty fantasies come true. He’s covered in a facade of deception. An enticing blend of multi-millionaire and hot-as-hell Wyoming rancher, those that think they know Woolf Jennings admire his abilities to preside as CEO of his family’s cattle and oil empire. But only a privileged few truly understand what fuels the glitter of depravity in those gorgeous blue eyes. Only a few know he’s opened up a sinfully erotic and private sex club named The Wicked Horse right at the base of the beautiful Teton Mountain range. Sweet Callie Hayes has returned home to Wyoming and is looking forward to starting her life over again. After a night of impetuosity, she’s managed to put herself right in Woolf’s line of sight… the man who she foolishly offered up her virginity to years ago and was flatly turned down. Now Woolf is seeing that Callie is all grown up and has a kinky side to her that leaves him as confused as it does turned on. Worse yet, both Callie’s dirty desires and sweet heart are getting under his skin, and making Woolf question everything he’s ever believed about himself.

Wolff Jennings own JennCo an Double J with his bro but he is the 1 who runs things so his bro can do what he luvs 2 do an Wolff wants some of that 2 he is fed up running the company but he would do it 4 his bro but when his bf Bridger an Wolff get 2 set up there own nightclub but with a sex club behind it they both have a kinky side an want 2 have a place 2 go where other people can express there selves in the same way Wolff as always wanted 2 do it an it's the time 2 do it
Wicked Horse is open an so is the Silo Wolff is doing is usually going around when he fancies a lil sexy time but stops in his tracks when he hears the voice that is alway in the back of his mind Callie Hayes an she is sexier than ever an he can't believe she's here she was meant 2 live in Connecticut with her fiance but she was there doing a wet t-shirt contest her breasts there hot an wet an he wanted her everything he had tried 2 4get had come flooding back 2 him especially 2 his southern region ;) so when he throws Callie over is an drags her away she is pretty pissed there is a lot of history between these 2 an now she is back he wants 2 know why an he wants her more than anything  

There was so much going on in this story an it was so good I luvd Callie she as been through a bit of a boring life her fiance is a total bore an then she finds him in bed with a woman doing things she couldn't even image he would do she as had enough of her boring life so now she wants 2 start living her life again doing things she hasn't done or thought of an she is luvin it I do luv the way she pushes herself 2 open up 2 things she wouldn't even thing of doing an things get so hot really hot 

Wolff is seriously 1 hot piece of ass an he has gone pretty high in my book boyfriend list he is super sexy an God his sexy time is just off the hook through out this book the sexy time just kept getting hotter an hotter the things that went on ohhhh it was hot cold showers a needed through out this book I did like the way Wolff turned himself around an the connection between him an Callie is just gorgeous smoking an I was dying 2 get more of them 

This book is just brilliant if u want something super hot with hot men hot sexy time then read it I 've not read many book from this author but it's goin 2 change I luvd the way it was wrote the different pov's were great I just like getting into both male an females heads an 1 thing I m dyin 4 more of this series I m excited after read the epilogue I want more like maybe know :) I highly recommend this book guys read it xxx 

Woolf Jennings took over his family's cattle and oil business after the death of his father. His real passion, though, is his nightclub, The Wicked Horse, which is actually a front for The Silo. The private sex club is Woolf's pride and joy that he runs with his best friend. He will make your naughtiest fantasy come true - for a deep price, of course.

Callie Hayes just arrived back in town after finding her boyfriend in a, lets just say, compromising position. Wanting a night to just let loose she goes to The Wicked Horse and ends up entering a wet t-shirt contest. Up on the bar she doesn't expect to look down and see an angry Woolf telling her to get down. Woolf was her brothers best friend, and the guy she offered her virginity to, only to get turned down. She never thought she'd ever get a second chance at having Woolf in her bed. 

Wicked Fall is different than the other Sawyer Bennett books I have read, and me likey! Naughtiness mixed with powerful people with lots of money makes for a very hot book. This takes erotica to a whole new level and I already can't wait to find out what other debauchery Ms. Bennett can come up with for us. 

Even if you don't want to read this book or think you won't enjoy it, you need to get this and read the menage scene. Oh Mah Lawd it was hot and I was not even expecting it to be that sexy. After I finished the book I went back and read that scene over again. Just saying, do yourself a favor and read it!

Even without the hotness factor of this book I enjoyed reading about Callie and Woolf finally coming together after so many years apart. Yes, there was lots of sex, but not so much that it took away from the connection the characters shared. That is what took this from just another hot tale of sex and sin, to a truly erotic romance. 

I did want a little more of an ending for Callie and Woolf, and felt that it was a little rushed. This is still a must read, though and I hope everyone that reads it will like it as much as I did. I'm ready for the next book now!

Woolf Jennings and Callie Hayes have known each other for years. Even though there has been something between them for long, Woolf has always tried to maintain their relationship as friendly as possible. She is sweet and innocent, he is kinky and sinful. Now, their lives have taken different paths and Callie is living in a different city.

Woolf took over his family business and in addition, he found, with his best friend Ridger, a night club, the Wicked Horse. What people don't know is that, behind the club, there is a secret sex club, The Silo..

Callie, after a marriage gone wrong, comes back to Wyoming, and when she meets Woolf again, they both realizes that the attraction is still there..

I really liked this book; I read it in one sitting and I really couldn't put it down.

BDSM books are usually a hit or miss for me, but this aspect really worked for me in this one.

Sawyer Bennett definitely knows how to write sex scenes! I was fanning myself a few times, especially during a scene in particular ! 

I also have to add that this story has one of the most interesting secondary characters ever. Bridger was such a different and intriguing character and I can't wait to read more of him!

I couldn't connect well with Woolf, because I was already obsessing over Bridger, who totally stole the show. That was the only issue I had with this book.

I can't wait to read more books by Sawyer Bennett, I've read a few so far and she has never disappointed me. It was a really enjoyable and steamy read and I hope you give it a try! It was a great start to a new series.

P.s. After that epilogue, I can't wait for the next book..Bring it on! 

Wicked Fall is the first book in The Wicked Horse series and it can be read as a standalone.

The Recession Groom

Title: The Recession Groom
Author: Vani
Add to Goodreads

Parshuraman Joshi, 27, handsome, Hindu-Brahmin, IT Professional, settled in Canada, earns a high-figure salary.

These are credentials that would make any young man hot on the Indian wedding market, so it's no wonder that Parshuraman's family is inundated with matrimonial proposals. While so far all attempts to 'settle' him have gone kaput, he has bigger issues vexing him - such as Jennifer, his 'fireball' of a colleague, and their efforts to save Project Infinite. To top it all, as the credit crisis grips the global economy, the little world he's created for himself begins to fall apart. Will he be able to pull himself together to face the challenges posed by a tough economy? More importantly, will this Recession Groom be able to find his 'perfect partner'?

Pashuraman Joshi is a 27 years old Indian Brahmin who moved to Canada to work as an IT professional. He is happy with his life; he's got a great job, a high salary and great friends. There is nothing more he could ask for.
Unfortunately, at some point things change for him. He has to fly to India to supervise a project with his collegue Jennifer, who doesn't hide the love she feels for him. 
Then, against his will, his Aunt and sister decide that it has finally come the time to arrange his marriage...

The Recession Groom was an enjoyable and very informative read. I've studied a few things about Indian culture years ago at school but there was a lot that I didn't know about it and that I learned thank to this book.

This story revolves mostly about the concept of Arranged Marriage and it was interesting to see how this really works in reality.

The writing style was easy and clear and what I liked the most about this story is that it felt real.

I liked the side characters, especially Aunt Parvati, even though her behavior was a bit over the top for me sometimes, but it didn't make me enjoy this story any less.

I was curious to see how things for Pashuraman would end up being in the end, after all the troubles he had to go through. 
I am happy with how things ended, but my only complaint is that the ending was rushed and I wish we could a longer epilogue to the story.

Overall, it was a very informative read and if you're interested about Indian culture, you should give this a try!

Author: Penny Reid
Add to Goodreads

Beards, brothers, and bikers! Oh my!
Identical twins Beau and Duane Winston might share the same devastatingly handsome face, but where Beau is outgoing and sociable, Duane is broody and reserved. This is why Jessica James, recent college graduate and perpetual level headed good girl, has been in naïve and unhealthy infatuation with Beau Winston for most of her life. His friendly smiles make her tongue-tied and weak-kneed, and she’s never been able to move beyond her childhood crush. Whereas Duane and Jessica have always been adversaries. She can’t stand him, and she’s pretty sure he can’t stand the sight of her…
But after a case of mistaken identity, Jessica finds herself in a massive confusion kerfuffle. Jessica James has spent her whole life paralyzed by the fantasy of Beau and her assumptions of Duane’s disdain; therefore she’s unprepared for the reality that is Duane’s insatiable interest, as well as his hot hands and hot mouth and hotter looks. Not helping Jessica’s muddled mind and good girl sensibilities, Duane seems to have gotten himself in trouble with the local biker gang, the Iron Order.
Certainly, Beau’s magic spell is broken. Yet when Jessica finds herself drawn to the man who was always her adversary, now more dangerous than ever, how much of her level-headed heart is she willing to risk?

With Visions of Red: Book Two

Title: With Visions of Red
Series: Broken Bonds Book 2
Author: Trisha Wolfe
Add to Goodreads

The UNSUB has made contact.

After a rapid string of grisly murders shakes the usually peaceful city of Arlington, Virginia, the sadistic killings of young women lull into a deceptive calm. Agent Sadie Bonds knows the terror isn’t over; serial killers don’t stop until caught.

And this sadist has targeted the profiler, revealing pieces of her dark past and weaving her secrets into each gruesome crime scene. Is the killer someone from Sadie’s past, her present? Or is he part of a fated future she brought on herself? The answer lies within the riddle of the copycat killings, ones mimicked after the infamous Blood Countess.

As tension brews in the department awaiting the UNSUB’s next move, Sadie’s more than on edge—her deviant cravings for the possible perpetrator have ratcheted out of control. She needs the feel of Colton’s ropes binding her, sheltering her from stark reality.

Only Colton Reed has his own twisted secrets that threaten to unravel not only Sadie as they come to light, but the UNSUB’s carefully constructed web now entangling both the profiler and her sexy bondage rigger.

Is Sadie too close to this case to be objective, or is the UNSUB closer to her than she ever imagined…

That ending!

This book starts off right where the first installment ended. Sadie is in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a sadistic killer and the UNSUB has stepped up his game in trying to get her attention. Colton is still keeping secrets and now Sadie realized she doesn't really know him at all. Could he be the threat to her? 

We do find out Colton's secret near the end and I have to be honest, I already knew. It was kind of obvious by the time he told Sadie what happened. I was shocked, though, when I started figuring it out. There are still so many questions I want answered. I hope the next book will be out soon!

With Visions of Red is such an intriguing erotic thriller and I didn't want to put it down once I started. The sexual chemistry between Sadie and Colton was amazing but what made it even greater was the mystery of the secrets that they both have. Sadie is also dealing with being stalked by the UNSUB and also trying to protect Colton from her teammates. So much is going on and I need my answers like right this second!

With Visions of Red

Title: With Visions of Red
Series: Broken Bonds Book 1
Author: Trisha Wolfe
Add to Goodreads

Criminal profiler Sadie Bonds knows blood. Her affair with the gruesome, dark world of killers began long before she started applying her analytical skills to investigate gory crime scenes. She gets inside the killers’ heads, breaks them down, relates to them on an arcane level. She prefers it this way—because it’s safer to ally herself with the villain than the victim. At least, that’s how she’s coped ever since she was abducted and tortured as a teen.

She will never be a victim again.

Now, she’s honed her skills in order to bring justice to these ritualistic offenders. Working alongside her colleagues, armed with sharp wit and a SIG, Sadie always catches her sadist. Until one ruthless serial killer gets inside Sadie’s head, turning the tables. He knows her secrets. Her obsessions. The darkest, most deviant part of her soul.

When she meets Colton Reed, dangerous stakes are raised as he threatens to unravel her control and reveal her darkest fantasies. The sexy-as-sin bondage rigger at an exclusive BDSM club pushes her boundaries, forcing her to acknowledge that side of herself she fears. Plunged into a realm of torture and suffering, pain and pleasure, Sadie balances on the razor-sharp edge of two intersecting worlds threatening to swallow her.

Passion and lust ignite. Dark and light battle. This explosive first installment of the Broken Bonds series sets the exhilarating pace for a cat and mouse game where no one knows who’s really pulling the strings.

Sadie Bonds was brought into a world of pain and blood at the young age of sixteen. Bound and tortured for days she is left her with the ability to get inside the heads of monsters. It also left her with a need to be bound and freed from her mind. Feeling like she is broken for wanting something so dark she tries ignoring her needs. But when her newest case brings her to Colton Reed's doorstep and he offers to give her the release she craves, she can't deny herself any longer.

Sadie is on the hunt for a serial killer who tortures and kills young females. The crime scenes all bring her back to those days of being held captive and it drives her into Colton's arms - and ropes. The killer is playing a dangerous game with Sadie, and feels connected to her somehow. Sadie is chasing the killer. The killer is after Sadie. And only one of them will be caught.

This was such an intriguing story and I can't wait to get to the next book. I loved how Trisha Wolfe gave us not only Sadie and Colton's POV but also had little parts of the UNSUB's too. Sadie was really smart and I liked reading about her knowledge of history and serial killers. It was fun how Elizabeth Bathory, one of the most prolific female serial killers, was mentioned and was connected to the case. I wrote a paper on her in college so I just thought that was cool.

We didn't get too much of Colton in this first part of the story but I'm looking forward to finding out more about him. He has secrets of his own and I'm dying to find out what they are. He and Sadie together had a lot of chemistry and their scenes were Hot with a capital H.

On to the next one!

Author: Chanel Cleeton
Add to Goodreads

The author of Flirting with Scandal presents her second book in a sexy contemporary romance series about three sisters in a powerful political family, the scandals that threaten to destroy them, and the passion that drives them…

The daughter of one of the Senate's most powerful figures, Blair Reynolds was ready to become the ultimate political wife—until she caught her fiancé cheating on her wedding day. Law school is a fresh start, her shot at putting the pieces of her life back together. That’s the plan, at least. Until trouble comes in the form of her Torts professor, the man whose arrogance infuriates her in class but haunts her private fantasies.

Graydon Canter had a fortune and a place on all the hottest "Thirty under Thirty” lists, until a series of personal missteps nearly destroyed his career. A year teaching at a D.C. law school is just the break he needs to get his life back in order, as long as nothing—and no one—trips him up.

When Blair and Gray are forced to work together, their explosive attraction becomes impossible to resist. But Gray’s demons have drawn him dangerously close to the edge, and Blair has spent her life playing by the rules. Will she break them for a shot at love?

Blair Reynolds is the daughter of one of the most influential politicians in DC, Senator Reynolds, therefore, her life has always been on display.
On her wedding day, she caught her husband cheating on her with his best man. Now, she is trying to pick up her pieces, start over and decide what to do with her life.
She enrolls in Law School and there she meets Professor Graydon Canter. They're forced to work together on a project, but will they be able to stay away from each other?

After meeting Blair in book one, Flirting with Scandal, I was really curious to read her story.
This installment was different from the first one and I have to admit that it was a really pleasurable surprise!

Blair has always been the perfect daughter, always followed the rules, dressed nicely, done whatever her parents asked her.

Now, she's realizing that they care more about their public image than her happiness and she doesn't want to sacrifice her life for them anymore.

Gray has a difficult and troubled past, but he is trying his best to make amends for it. He has had another chance and he is determined not to waste it.

"You can do bad things and still be a good man. Don't let your past take that away from you. You can be more. You just have to try."

He doesn't believe that he's the right guy for Blair and he feels like he doesn't deserve such an amazing woman in his life after all he has done.

I have to admit that I am not such a fan of forbidden reads, especially of teacher-student books. I was hesitant, but the author made it easy for me to enjoy this book, A LOT

It was easy to love both Gray and Blair. Blair was such a great and mature heroine, Gray had such a complex past and I was happy to see them both getting some happiness in their lives.

It was a story about second chances, secrets, lies, forgiveness.

It was very well written and well developed. It's the second book that I read in this series and the second book that I really enjoy!

I am so curious about Kate's story and September can't come soon enough!

Blair Reynolds has always been the perfect daughter. Doing what her parents want, always with a smile on her face, to help her fathers political career. After an engagement gone wrong, which her parent's blame her for, she tries to redeem herself in their eyes by going to law school. But how can she be expected to concentrate on school when all she can think about is her professor, Graydon Canter.

Gray was a poor kid growing up in Chicago who turned his life around and became a successful lawyer. Having more money than he ever imagined himself having sent him on a downward spiral of partying and drugs that ruined his reputation. Leaving Chicago he takes a teaching job in hopes of saving his career. But when he walks into his classroom and see's Blair, he realizes he just found his newest addiction.

This book was such a tease! Blair and Gray shared these secret touches, and hidden kisses and those deep, long, passionate looks and then couldn't act on them. Sexual frustration, anyone??? Then when they could finally act on their feelings it was like,

"I'm trying so hard to be good, to stay away from you, then you smile at me and I forget my fucking name."

This was a fun, sexy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I couldn't wait until Gray and Blair finally worked out their issues and were able to be together but I loved the bond they formed before that could happen. I actually liked that they didn't jump right into a relationship. They both had issues and they were hiding their true selves and I liked seeing both characters grow.

This is the second book in the Capital Confessions series and I haven't read the first one yet, but I will definitely be going back to read about Jackie and Will. In all honestly I didn't like Blair's sister, Kate, that much but her story intrigues me so damn much! I can't wait to read it and hope she redeems herself for what she did in this book.
