My Thoughts:

What a great way to start this series. We get to know all the main players that are going to move us into the next book. 


Thatcher wants retribution for things that have been done to those he loves. Remy isn’t happy with her current situation. Our authors took me on an up and down ride and I loved it. I got to discover a new author and revisit another. So, trying to figure out what each author contributed to this story is not a concern. I just wanted to see that the characters were believable and how well the story moved along. By the end, I wanted to have that feeling of give me more. 


I can see how I’m like the fly being drawn into the spider’s web. I kept watching to see what Thatcher was going to do and how Remy was going to respond. Then I get just enough of the other series characters, that they ensure how much I will need to read book two so that I can see if the secrets are going to continue my ride or will I decide it’s time to get off this train.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from The Chaotic Creatives and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

About Crushed But Not Defeated:



That’s the only way Andrew will ever see me.

An abused boy who grew up and became a defense attorney for the rich and famous.

I’ll never forget the look on his face when I told him.

The hurt and disgust I saw in his eyes as I stomped all over his dreams.

He left me behind, convincing me he’d hate me forever.

Now, circumstances have brought me back into his life. I have one more chance to prove I’m not the man he thinks I am.

I’ll do anything to prove I’m worthy of him.



I have been since I was a child, watching my abusive father escape justice, time and time again, and a mother who refused to see his wrongs.

So I grew up to become a therapist, determined to never feel that helpless again.

I swore to make the world a better place, and I had a plan. One I thought I’d execute with my best friend in the world.

Only he had other dreams. He smashed all my hopes in one night, and I’ll never trust him again.

Now I need his help, but I refuse to let him in completely.

He crushed me once, but now, I’m strong and stubborn. I’ll never be defeated.

My Thoughts:

The author has included a short Playlist for those that like to listen to music as they read. I enjoyed the book without said music but I wouldn’t mind reading the book a second time in order to see how the music may enhance or distract my reading experience. 


Andrew is a man who has a big heart. Miles is a champion for those in need of help. Theirs is a story of second chances. Second chances for them but also for the supporting characters. Then we have other supporting people that I didn’t need to know their story in order to really enjoy this one. 


Ben and Colby’s story begins this series. If you are like me, you’re going to start Spark of Hope in the wrong order. By doing this, though, I was able to concentrate on what is happening with our main characters and what they are having to deal with. And I also get to see Ethan and Knox make a short appearance. The author could have taken her tale in one of two ways but I’m glad for how she decided to handle things. We have two budding relationships. 


This is a story of acceptance and that there are those that can overcome a horrible situation. I didn’t see a trigger warning but I’m just going to say that if you have experienced something in your past, or even your present, we have two boys that didn’t have the best childhood. It tugged on my heartstrings. This tale was a story that I didn’t want to put down. It has also given me the incentive to, at some point, go back and read the books that have come before. I will also have to check into more of Ms. Dykes’ stories.

About Fateful Hearts:

A Fake Dating/Marriage Billionaire Romance from USA Today Bestselling Author K E Osborn.

Some might see me as heartless…

Because at work, I am cold, calculating, ruthless, and I demand nothing but the best.

No exceptions.

But when in fact—I’m craving the woman I can’t have.

We all know there are rules that can’t be broken.

I made the mistake of wronging my business partner, Nash, once before. I won’t do it again, not if I want to keep my position by his side in this company.

But my eyes are firmly set on his PA.

Zoey Zavorelli—the sassy, single mother. Sexy. Methodical. Alluring.

Far too tempting.

There’s only one problem—no office romance.

Nash’s rules are strict.

But an opportunity presents itself when Zoey’s ex tells her he’s getting married, and I can’t help myself.

I tell him we’re dating, and now we have to pretend to be in a relationship for the next two weeks until his wedding.

Will this be exactly what we need, or will it cause our fateful hearts to break?

Fateful Hearts is a Fake Dating/Marriage Billionaire Romance.

There is steam, angst, and the villain you will want to throw things at repeatedly. But hold on to your hats because you’ll fall in love with this cinnamon roll alpha, and how he treats Zoey’s seven-year-old daughter will melt your heart.

Immerse yourself in the world of the New Orleans billionaire lifestyle and fall in love with an alpha. HEA guaranteed.

About Shiver:

A touch so intimate, a kiss so deep…

Egon Wolf is on a hockey scholarship but failing at everything else. Knowing he’s going to lose his ride if he doesn’t get his academic act together, he seeks out a tutor.

Rakesh Aahnu is a dual major and dangerous when bored. What he enjoys more than anything is the challenge of making straight men fall for him before walking away. Just because he can.

But both Egon and Rakesh are about to discover that life has a way of throwing you in the sin-bin when you least expect it.

And when faced with an unfamiliar play?

All you can do is shiver.

Meet Crea Reitan:

Crea lives in upstate New York with her dog and husband. She has been writing since grade school, when her second grade teacher had her class keep writing journals. She has a habit of creating secondary, and often time tertiary, characters that take over her stories. All of her RH relationships end up being heavily polyamorous - meaning it’s not just all the men for one woman. There’s also some M/M action going on. When she can’t fall asleep at night, she thinks up new scenes for her characters to act out. This, of course, is how most of her meant-to-be-thrown-away characters tend to end up front and center - and utterly swoon-worthy! Don’t ask her how many book boyfriends she has…

When not writing, Crea is an avid reader. Her TBR pile is several hundred books high (don’t even look at her kindle wish list or the unread books on her tablet). Sometimes, she enjoys crafting; sometimes, exploring nature; sometimes, traveling. Mostly, she enjoys putting her characters on paper and breathing life into them. Oh, and sleeping. Crea loves to sleep!
