The anticipation of waiting for this one to hit my Kindle was hard. And when it finally hit, I was a little scared to begin because I wasn't sure I could handle how the story was going to go. It is full of twist and turns. Just what you would expect from one of Romig's stories. And when you think you know how it is going to go, there is another curveball thrown at you, and you think: well, I wasn't looking for that to happen.

At the end of Entrapment, there were people banging on Alton's office door, who could it be? And what do they want? Will Alex/Charli ever escape the lies and deceit that Alton, Bryce, and Suzanna are trying to force her into? Will Nox "Batman" save the day as he always does for Charli?

This is a fantastic series and the ending is perfect. That is all I am saying because I do not want to spoil it for anyone. You have to read it for yourself. I will say this though, it will leave you speechless at times, holding your breath, leave you on the edge of your seat, missing sleep so you can find out what happens next, and even saying just one more chapter. I loved everything about this whole series. I hope you do too.

My goodness, this series has been amazing from start to finish, but this conclusion was AWESOME!
Without really discussing anything and giving away spoilers, this review is terribly difficult to write.

Book four left so many loose ends, questions, and just general anxiety. Thankfully, Fidelity has ALL the answers, but the suspense still hangs in the air throughout the entire book. I had moments where I had to actually walk away from the story because I was getting too jumpy!
I am now suffering a severe book hangover and can't stop thinking about these characters.

If you enjoy romantic suspense, you need to read this series and try to figure out what is going on – you will not be disappointed.
The three chapter epilogue was a nice bonus!

4.5 stars

Since I'd yet to read K. Webster, I jumped at the chance to read this – taboo-ish subject matter presented in novella length. I'm a big fan of a well-written novella because I don't have a lot of time to dedicate to lengthy novels, but wish to get a full story on the pages.

At eighteen, an AP student nearing graduation, Author is a budding alpha male. To be honest, he has more confidence than most grown men, and that's exactly the trait that endeared me to his narration. I liked the no bull approach in his thoughts.

Our teacher being Schooled by a Senior, Maise, is a browbeaten woman lacking confidence. There are parts of her I identified with, like the belittling texts and overall abuse.

The overconfidence and the lack of confidence were a good balance between the narrators. This is a lusty yet suspenseful novella, featuring an abundance of sexual tension, revenge-fueled loathing, and a warm and fuzzy undercurrent to please romance fans.

There was a thread I wish I hadn't known would happen from the get-go, but that's on me – instinctively always knowing where an author is headed with their stories. A professional nuisance of being a writer who loves to read. Even still, I enjoyed the heck out of the hour and a half I spent with Aut & 'Maze.'

For all the readers out there, I do believe they will eat this novella up, with the sexy time making them feel overheated, finding the novella to surprisingly hold a wealth of emotional depth.

In the future, I'll be on the lookout for more stores by K. Webster.


Shannan☆☆☆☆
Schooled by a Senior packs a punch, even with its short page count. K. Webster doesn't hold back in this one. She is right to the point with the confident Aut. I love the taboo aspect and the twist to the plot.

Great quick read!


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is a really good short story – with plenty of character development, a clever plot line, and some very hot scenes. I hadn't read a student teacher story in a long while, as they can be a bit painful, but this absolutely hit the mark. By making Aut, the student, a strong overconfident alpha, the balance upset by their age and role is restored – if not swung quite heavily in his favour. This is naughty, sexy, and ultimately redemptive... quite a feat in under a hundred pages!

I was amazed at how much could be fitted into a short story and turned the last page feeling very pleased at having such a complete read.


Lee’Anne☆☆☆☆☆
Super hot, quick read!

Author Banks, aka Aut, is an extremely smart high school senior who has grown up not knowing who his father is, only that he’s loaded and keeps he and his mother living the “life” with all his money. Aut is known around school for sleeping around and not taking crap from anyone. When Mrs. Macmillan shows up as a substitute teacher, he takes his playboy ways a step further and decides he’s going to bang the new teacher, married or not. When he realizes that she’s in an abusive relationship at home Aut starts to care, and what was supposed to be a quick thing turns into so much more… then Aut finds out who Mrs. Macmillan’s husband is and… well you’ll have to read it to find out!

I love that though this is a short read, it has every bit the drama of a full-length novel. I couldn’t put it down, it’s definitely fast-paced and off the charts steamy! K. Webster is a new to me author, but I’m excited to see what she releases next!






K Webster is the author of dozens romance books in many different genres including contemporary romance, historical romance, paranormal romance, and erotic romance. When not spending time with her husband of twelve years and two adorable children, she's active on social media connecting with her readers.

Her other passions besides writing include reading and graphic design. K can always be found in front of her computer chasing her next idea and taking action. She looks forward to the day when she will see one of her titles on the big screen.

This is a scorching hot read. A more mature and slightly more serious story than anything else I’ve read from this author, I absolutely loved it.

Xavier Mayne always questions sexuality and sexual politics. Even when writing slapstick scenes for his Brandt and Donnelly stories, he manages to make thoughtful and insightful observations. Here, with older, more family-focused characters, he again manages to surprise and prompt questions. How intimate can two straight men become with each other? When does a friendship become a love affair? When does the bromance threaten the marriage? Does it have to threaten the marriage?

Arlo and Trent’s relationship is incredibly sexy. Their path from friendship to intimacy was pure pleasure to read. The chemistry between them is wonderful. And Cara – she’s the first woman I’ve read by this author and I loved her. Arlo’s passion, Trent’s confused attraction, and Cara’s cool reasoning is wonderful. These characters are thoughtful, considered, and incredibly sexy.

I have to admit that I don’t like stories about kids. In real life, I’ve always found young children slightly terrifying and parents of small children are rarely entertaining or engaging. So part of me is still struggling to understand why I loved this story about three parents. I like that Trent, Arlo, and Cara defy many parent stereotypes. Cara is the often absent breadwinner. All three retain their own interests and open minded views of the world. They are all very interesting adults. And thankfully, this is a story about the adults – the children fade into the background for most of the book. The isolation of parenting is explored honestly, and so are the challenges of sustaining a marriage while parenting young children.

The heat in this story makes it one of the best ménage books I can remember reading. The thoughtfulness, the carefully developed characters, and complex insights into gender and sexuality make it a beautiful polyamorous love story, and the quality of the writing pushes it into that most loathed of categories – literary fiction. But however we label it, this is wonderful, sexy, and powerful writing.



Xavier Mayne is the pen name of a writer who has been both a university professor of English and a marketing professional for software companies. He currently manages a team of writers for a large technology company based in the US Pacific Northwest. Versed in academic theories of sexual identity, he is passionate about writing stories in which men experience a love that pushes them beyond the boundaries they thought defined their sexuality. He believes that romance can be hot, funny, and sweet in equal measure.

The name Xavier Mayne is a tribute to the pioneering gay author Edward Prime-Stevenson, who also used it as a pen name. He wrote the first openly gay novel by an American, 1906’s Imre: A Memorandum. Unique among early gay novels, it tells the story of two main characters who are straight until they meet each other.

5 coming-of-age stars.

Alexis is transforming before the reader's eyes. Turning from a hard young woman who refuses to compromise, to the version of herself Brett brings out – compassion and empathy. The ability to see a situation from more than just her perspective. She is learning how justice may be blind, but it's blinding her to everything outside of herself.

The truth may be black and white, but the emotions are hidden in the shades of gray. No longer closed off, Alexis is feeling more about everything and everyone in her life, learning how to compromise.

Brett isn't at the forefront of this installment, as through Alexis we see where their friends and family's lives are headed as well. Comfortable in their place in one another's life, Alexis is no longer fighting Brett's pull. She takes up a supportive role in her boyfriend's life, showing she is more than a protector and pessimist.

The characters are flawed but teeming with realistic human emotion. Heavy subject matter is explored in this novel and the previous one, done so in a manner in which it is realistic for the target age group – scary things which happen to teens every day, showing how resilient and strong they can be when faced with these situations. This may be a guide and comfort to those who may have experienced the same.

After reading all three books in a singular sitting, I am pleased overall and left wanting more. I look forward to reading more by this author, and highly recommend it to young adults and their more mature counterparts. We adults need to feel that spark of warmth only a budding crush can bring on.

Young Adult age-range: 13+. Parental discretion due to a handful of profanity/hate speech (realistically shown). Kissing. Heavy subject matter dealing with assault/bullying.

I HAD to pick this book up after the ending on book one... RIGHT AWAY. That ending… wicked and heart breaking.

The first story was great, but this one... this one by far passed it! I didn't think it would, but the more the story unfolded, the more I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.

There is love and sex, which was the sweet part of the story, and then there is the rest. There are times when my stomach twisted because of the horrible things that we were finding out and the things that were happening! This poor couple and the sweet little girl that gets caught in the middle.

I will say that the words being repeated THREE times, ALL the time got to be a bit much, but I will COMPLETELY applaud the narrators for making it as bearable as possible, but it was distracting and annoying at times through both books. However, the other aspects of the books were so great I can't mark down on the rating because of it.

Again Andi Arndt and Sebastian York did a FANTASTIC job with this story and I really have gotten to the point where I will pick up almost any book they do together because they add so much to the story!

Stay by Chelsea Camaron


Fair Warning… This isn’t a sappy romance. It’s not sweet. It’s far from anything you would want to imagine. This is a story to leave you feeling dirty.

Nothing about us is normal.

Nothing about us is natural.

Can love ultimately be defined in such ways, truly?

This is our story.

He is a hit man, the very one who took my family the night that changed us both forever. Something in my eyes stopped him from killing me. Something in my eyes called out for him to take me.

At ten, he captured me. At fifteen, he consumed me. And at eighteen, he owned me.

Outsiders think he’s my father… That is so far from the truth.

Our twisted desires fuel the darkness that lies deep inside us both. My innocence never existed, and he takes me as I am.

***Warning: Adult content not suitable for readers under the age of 18. This is a dark romance filled with graphic violence and is not to be mistaken as a light read. This is not your typical HEA. You have been warned.***

Totally Awesome and Heartbreakingly Good!

Going in to this book I wasn't sure what to expect, but I can tell you that I was pleasantly surprised and heartbroken, all at the same time.

Fallyn/Angel lived a terrible life for a child of only 10 years old. Parents should always keep us safe, not put us in the middle of danger. She will learn that her father was not who she thought her was.

Giano has lost so much, but he has found his salvation in Angel. By sparing her life, he is saving them both.

Can they both make the lie believable? Will Angel accept her new life with Giano? What happens if the lie is found out?

I love Chelsea Camaron and her writing style. And her MC stories are drool worthy, but this story is another level for her and I feel that she rocked it. This story is dark to a certain point, but not too dark, heartbreaking, painful, and will make you cry. I loved everything about it. Well done, Chelsea.



USA Today bestselling author Chelsea Camaron grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, which just so happened to inspire her Love and Repair and The Hellions Ride series. When she’s not writing, you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book, or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in.
