Harmful Rush is a standalone, full-length novel set in the Remedy world. You do not have to read the first two books to read this book.
Skylark Samuels has a secret.
She’s not a normal teenager, although she plays one in real life. Pretending to be something you’re not isn’t easy, especially in high school where gossip is gold. For years, Sky manages to hide her uniqueness, until one fateful day when she exposes her gift, her curse, and all her fears come to pass. Now instead of going to college near home like she planned, she has to leave town and go someplace where the rumors can’t follow. The plan when she gets there: keep to herself and stay under the radar.
But blending into the background is impossible when local heartthrob Dylan Parks notices her. Even though Sky keeps her distance and doesn’t act like one of Dylan’s adoring fans, he goes out of his way to talk to her. Her. The girl who wants to be invisible.
Sky isn’t immune to Dylan’s charm, but getting close to him is a bad idea. It goes against the promise she made to herself. Besides, if Dylan knew the truth, he wouldn’t want her. If he discovered her secret, he’d treat her differently and possibly fear her. It’s happened before. But the more Sky gets to know Dylan, the harder it is to resist him, until fate intervenes.
A tragic event forces Sky to reveal herself to the one person she’s come to care for, and his reaction is unexpected. For the first time, she doesn’t feel so alone. But what she doesn’t realize is that she’s never been alone. When she finally lets her guard down, someone comes along who threatens to unravel everything, because being normal was never Sky’s destiny.
American Queen... the title alone was intriguing to me. The cover art elegant! It reminded me of Hollywood old style elegance. Simply stunning.
My world changed when I met Bellamy Morgan.
Just one problem — she’s my little sister’s best friend.
I’m not “damaged.” No horrible childhood or demons in my past I’m trying to outrun. In fact, my family is ideal — funny, supportive and filled with couples that all follow “our” golden rule:
Find her. Protect her. Love only her, with everything you are, every day, for the rest of your life.
So why is it the mere thought of a monogamous relationship, more than one night with the same woman, sends me bolting in the other direction?
Because I hadn’t met Bellamy Morgan yet.
When I do cross paths with her, everything starts to slowly make sense. Why men change overnight — suddenly blind to all women but her, happy to hold her purse and watch corny movies.
Just one problem — she’s my little sister’s best friend.
Embody is a spin-off, STANDALONE novel from the bestselling Evolve Series.
Embody is a spin-off from S.E. Hall's Evolve Series. That's where we are originally introduced to the Crew and all their craziness. I've read this series and adore each story. If you haven't read this series and aren't familiar with their history/dynamics, you're in luck! Embody is it's own story and introduces us to the Squad (hopefully more to come for the Squad!) who are the children of the Crew members.
Jefferson Tate Kendrick, nickname JT tracks his little sister, Brynn, down at a party. When he finds Brynn trampling out of the woods with her BFF Bellamy and Ryder tagging along; JT is stunned. Brynn had been holding out on him. J.T. is known player and takes notes from his Uncle Sawyer.
Brynn lays down the rules, stating that JT is forbidden to attempt any relationship with Bellamy. These rules hold consequences for everyone involved, especially JT who has never been more infatuated with a girl than Bellamy. Bellamy quickly picks up the hints of the rules and decides to teach the Kendrick children a lesson. Her lesson is entertaining to follow and she knows how to speak JT's language!
While reading I had a difficult time putting this book down. S.E. Hall ALWAYS does this to me! I love and Hate it because my work suffers, but the stories are always worth the sleep deprivation. This book was no exception from S.E. Hall. I was skeptical but S.E. Hall delivered in a big way! I'm excited to see if she continues with this new series.

We are first introduced to Aurora Wilde on a night where she makes a decision completely different than her conserved self. She locks eyes with a handsome hottie across the room and the next thing she is having a one night stand with this mystery dude named "Jay."
Rorie (short for Aurora) drags her best friend Taylor with her back the frat house looking for Mr. One Night Stand with no success. While searching for Mystery dude she meets Prince Charming in a Cinderella type cute-meet.
Rorie falls in love with Mr. Prince Charming, Declan Veil. They eventually move in together and everything seems perfectly planned for their future...house with white picket fence, 3.5 kids, financial security. Until Declan's adopted brother Jentry shows up for the family vacation! Oh the SPARKS that fly when they met each others eyes!
My favorite character from this book is Mrs. Veil! She is scathingly EVIL!!!! And I devoured every scene she was present. She was perfectly villainous and I LOVED it! She was the unexpected surprise for in this book. Otherwise, this book was slightly mundane and predictable. Mrs. Veil added a wonderful deeper layer to this story.
This love triangle isn't much of a love triangle and I love love triangles (say that 3xs fast!). Rorie made her decision early and it was very clear. My biggest issue with this book was the jumping from 1 week ago to 3 months ago to 2weeks ago to 1 year ago to present day. It was very difficult to distinguish the purpose of the time jumps and hard to keep up. This is why I gave this book only 3.5 stars.
I look forward to reading more from Molly McAdams!
WOW! This book had me at Hello ... Hello Mr. President! From the beginning you can feel the appeal between Charlotte Wells and Matthew "Matt" Hamilton!
These Royals will ruin you…

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ REVIEW ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Harley and I are Complicated... That's one way to put it! I'm an absolute sucker for Friends to Lovers story. Beautiful, ALL the feels, tears, anger, disbelief, angst, despair, lust...I felt everything Carmen Jenner threw out there. This book contained everything. I absorbed this book!
This story is told mostly from Rose, with flashbacks alternating with the current storyline. Flashbacks round this story out, bringing us closer to Harley and Rose and explain how they became Harley & Rose.
We are introduced to Rose consoling her best friend Harley on his wedding day minutes after he's been left standing at the alter. They have been best friends since forever, even their families are close. They tried romance but when that didn't work out well, they settled into this comfortable friendship. Underneath the facade of the friendship there was this touchable hot chemistry, and everyone around them could feel it. They had made their choices and mistakes.
This book brought me to tears a few more times than I care to admit, but I LOVED Harley and Rose! This was my first book by Carmen Jenner and I can't wait to read more from her! If her other books are anything like this, I can't wait! I will now social media stalk this author!
