UNBOXING: April Illumicrate “Dearly Departed” Box

Hello Lovelies! I’m back with another Illumicrate unboxing today! This box was a bit late but it’s here now and I could not be more excited!


The Book:

The book this month is absolutely STUNNING!!! First off, I could not be more in love with the book pick itself. A dark, polyamorous romance you say??? HELL TO THE YES!!! Add on the stenciled edges, exclusive endpapers, and one of the prettiest art prints I have ever seen and this has GOT to be one of my most favorite books I’ve ever gotten! I can’t wait to dive into this read!


The Items:

The Beautiful Mason Jar Glass by @thatslovelydearshop
Dread Nation Sickle Key Ring by @palaceofresin
Gideon the Ninth Magnets by @_saintdri
Monthly Enamel Pin by @stacey.mcevoy.caunt
Nevernight Book Organizer by @rosdottir

As far as the items go this month, I think Illumicrate did well for the most part. A majority of their budget had to have gone to the book pot, so with that in mind, the other items were better quality than I would have thought.

While gorgeous, the book pot isn’t my favorite they’ve ever done. I love the Egyptian mythology theme, but their Forgotten Fables and Folklore book pot is still my favorite.

My favorite item BY FAR is the Nevernight book organizer! I am not ashamed to say that I’ve already put it to good use, housing some of my books! My least favorite item has to be the key ring. It’s not awful, but it’s not my fandom and you run out of enthusiasm for them after a while!


Next Month’s Box (May):

I’m excited for next month’s (this month’s lol?) box. I love me some stenciled edges so I’m looking forward to those. I am also looking forward to the Addie LaRue and City of Brass items!


Overall, I did enjoy this month’s box. The Nevernight item made the box pretty much worth it items wise, but what really sold me was the book! It’s probably my favorite pick from Illumicrate so far this year, not gonna lie!

ARC Review:

🍁🍁🍁🍁🍁

I highly enjoyed this anthology. It gave me all of the dark, taboo romance feelings I was looking for and there were a wide variety of stories to enjoy. Obviously, I enjoyed some more than others but they were ultimately all really good. This anthology definitely got me interested in checking out some of these authors’ other works!

When the Light and the Dark Collide…
Who will Maintain the Balance within the Veil


For hundreds of years, magic users have grown up with the misconception that their magic has no true origin; that they were simply gifted more than mere-mortals. 

This control of the narrative has suited the Fae, for their existence has been hidden; their kingdoms beyond the Veil secure. There has been a tenuous balance within the realms and for thousands of years the Fae have been secure in their traditions…their rule. 

That is, until the uprising of a dark queen; because as with all things bound by nature, with unbalance comes destruction. 

Until the prophecy of change was whispered throughout the realms there was an ever present sense of desolation. 

Now? There is hope.

********

Hudson Jacobs has no idea of the changes that are about to take her life by storm. No idea of the plans put into motion by those who know of her existence and wish to not only protect her, but solidify the prophecy by any means necessary. 

The only question is, will her destiny ultimately protect her or destroy her and those she holds dear to her heart. 

When the stakes are darkness or light, life or death, will Hudson embrace her new life or will the tenuous Veil between the mortal and Fae Realm, destroy her before she gets that chance?

BLOG TOUR (+EXCERPT): Condemned To Love by Siobhan Davis

Her teen crush is now a ruthless killer and powerful mafia heir.
Will one life-altering night unite or destroy them?

Bennett Mazzone grew up ignorant of the truth: he is the illegitimate son of the most
powerful mafia boss in New York. Until it suited his father to drag him into a world where

power, wealth, violence, and cruelty are the only currency.

Celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Sin City should be fun for Sierra Lawson, but
events take a deadly turn when she ends up in a private club, surrounded by dangerous

men who always get what they want.
And they want her.

Ben can’t believe his ex’s little sister is all grown up, stunningly beautiful, and close to
being devoured by some of the most ruthless men he has ever known. The Vegas trip is
about strengthening ties, but he won’t allow his associates to ruin her perfection.
Although it comes at a high price, saving Sierra is his only choice.

The memory of Ben’s hands on her body is seared into Sierra’s flesh for eternity. She
doesn’t regret that night. Not even when she discovers the guy she was crushing on as
a teenager is a cold, calculating killer with dark impulses and lethal enemies who want

him dead.

Understanding the risks, she walks away from the only man she will ever love, stowing
her secrets securely in her heart. Until the truth becomes leverage and Sierra is drawn
into a bloody war—a pawn in a vicious game she doesn’t want to play.
As the web of deceit is finally revealed, Ben will stop at nothing to protect Sierra. Even if
loving her makes him weak. In a world where women serve a sole purpose, and
alliances mean the difference between life and death, can he fight for love and win?

EXCERPT:

SIERRA

Just as I was starting to lose my anger, it returns full force, slapping me in the
face. “I don’t want your dirty money!” I hiss, prodding my finger in his chest.
An amused grin spreads across his mouth, and I want to scream. “I run several
successful legitimate businesses. I assure you my money is about as dirty as yours.”
He has an answer for everything. It’s infuriating. “You truly have no shame,” I seethe.
How dare he invade my privacy like this. He has no right. “Next, you’ll be telling me you
know my bra size.”
His eyes lower to my chest, and I scowl, wanting to wrap my arms around myself to
deprive him of the view. But I won’t give him the satisfaction of letting him know how
much he is getting to me either, so I don’t move a muscle.
“You were definitely a B cup in Vegas, but I’m guessing you’re a C cup now.” He
steps a little closer, and though my instinct is to fall back, I stand my ground, refusing to
let this asshole intimidate me again. Bending down, he presses his warm mouth to my
ear. “I would need to conduct a physical exam to make an accurate assessment.”

I push him away, glaring at him. “You’re a pig.”
His lips pull up at the corners. “I don’t remember you complaining in Vegas. In fact, I
distinctly remember you begging me to suck harder on your nipples as I plowed my
cock into your greedy pussy.”
“Get out!” I bark, pointing at the door. “Just go.”
He winks, and I invoke every shred of willpower I possess not to lunge at him and
gouge out his eyeballs.
“Until tomorrow.” He gives me a curt nod before exiting my kitchen, and I slump back
in my chair, relieved he is gone but a little disappointed too.
