The Moth and the Flame
by B. B. Reid
Release Date: May 20th, 2019
Here lies Louchana Valentine. She was a homeless, orphaned virgin.
I never cared what my gravestone would say until I landed in deep with a powerful gangster. Lucky for me, my best friend happens to be ruthless too. I should feel guilty that he’s forced to turn on the man who’s been a father to him. Except I’ve always known that Wren’s soul wasn’t as black as he claimed.
He was good.
He was beautiful.
He was mine.
He just didn’t know it yet.
And with Wren keeping me safe, I’ve got time left to rewrite the end of my story. But if he has his way, virgin is already carved in stone.
I’ve never known anyone as alluring as Lou. Or as frustrating. Since the night she saved my life and stole my wallet for her troubles, I couldn’t stay away.
She became my onus.
With nowhere to run, I’m forced to trust someone I never expected. At least with Lou safe in Blackwood Keep—far away from me—I’ll die with my conscience intact. Because she no longer looks at me with friendship in her eyes. Those iridescent blues shine with a different need entirely, and I’ve never been able to deny her.
The Moth and the Flame returns to the world of Blackwood Keep, rival gangs, and deliciously flawed yet completely addicting characters! This second installment in the When Rivals Play series is a continuation of the events that occurred in The Peer and the Puppet. Content suitable for ages 18+.
I don't do a lot of these because I often find that I don't have enough to say and the posts are always so short. However, I guess something is better than nothing and I'm trying to be more present now that I am done school for the summer. Since I don't plan on doing the Top 5 Wednesday topic for today since I have already done it in the past, I figured a short post about a book I am excited for would be much better suited.
This book I have been particularly excited about seeing as it's by one of my favorite NA authors and comes in a matter of weeks. I just helped with the cover reveal the other day and I'm already so excited to read it. This is the second book in the When Rivals Play series and it's following characters that we don't know much about, but are sure to have some perfectly steamy scenes together. B. B. Reid is a master at creating these darker NA romances that play on the taboo, but definitely have limits that I feel fit well with my own likes. If you've never read a B. B. Reid novel before and you like authors such as Penelope Douglas, then I definitely think you should give her a read. Definitely worth it.
