The day before finals were the worst. Being master procrastinators, you and Jughead had ignored the upcoming finals until the day before. Now you were cramming together, Jughead reading his science textbook while you read your history. The two of you were at your house in your bedroom and had been studying for hours. It was now nighttime and you had skipped lunch so you were starving. You looked up at Jughead and got an idea.
“You know what I want?” you asked all sultry, putting your book down and looking up at your boyfriend.
Jughead rose his eyebrows but was unable to keep a smile on his face.
“What?” he asked lowly, deciding to play your little game. He closed his book, crawling over to you. “What do you want?”
He got closer and closer to you so your faces were inches away before you exclaimed,
The smile fell off Jughead’s face as he moved back to his original spot and sat back again, disappointed.
“That was mean.” he mumbled, opening his book again.
“Oh come on!” you said. “I’m starving.”
Jughead shook his head.
“Y/N, as much I love Pop’s, we don’t have time for it. We need to study.” he said, looking back down at his book.
You scoffed at the little hypocrite.
“Says the guy who was ready for sex ten seconds ago.” you said.
You could see him tighten his grip on the book.
“That’s different.” he mumbled lamely.
You rolled your eyes.
“Come here, Juggie.” you cooed.
This time you were the one crawling over to where Jughead was sitting. The teen shook his head.
“I’m not falling for that again.” he said as he continued looking his book, trying not to get distracted.
You took his book from him, closing it and putting it down beside you. Before Jughead could protest, you swung your leg over his waist so you were now straddling him.
“What’s the matter, sweetie?” you asked huskily. “Something wrong?”
Jughead gulped. You dipped down and began kissing and sucking gently on his neck as he bit back a moan.
“Y/N… Please don’t st—“ he began but stopped when you ceased kissing him and got off of him.
“Go get Pop’s and we can continue this when you get back.” you said cheekily, sitting back down in your original spot.
Jughead growled as he got up, grabbing his jacket that was lying on your bed. You stifled a laugh as you saw the hickey forming on his neck.
“You’re Satan, you know that right?” he said, pulling his jacket on.
A/N: I hope that was okay! Send me feedback please!
So I needed a break from the historical romance binge I’ve been on and decided to finally take on book 3 of Penny Reid’s Winston Brothers series.
I can’t fully write or summarise my feelings about this book yet. Reading this book has pulled me through an emotional and mental rollercoaster for many reasons. Self reflection and introspection are healthy, and a large part of why I started reading romances - they give me a safe space to analyse situations and think about my own actions and reactions.
This book is deceptively heavy: control is the theme of the book, and we see it used as a positive and negative mechanism.
I’m calling on my fellow Reid fan girls @diehard-fangirl and @thecrankyagnes and anyone else who has read Beard Science or the other Winston Brother books - sharing experiences makes them easier.
i’m just… so tired of reading posts complaining about problems that only exist because people won’t read romance novels… it is a huge genre there are books about werewolf dukes, there are books about black revolutionary war soldiers, there are books about south asian doms who care about enthusiastic consent, there are books about shape-shifting cowboys who turn into bears, there are books about lady scientists learning how to trust that their boundaries will be respected, there are books about alien barbarian warriors, there are books about genies, there are books about women of color in victorian london, there are books about polyamorous earls, there are fake marriages and marriages of convenience and basically every fanfic trope that people lose it for exists as a book with original characters but some of the same people who complain about how books no longer satisfy them turn a blind eye to a whole genre because it never occurs to them to read a ~bodice-ripper~ when they could read romantic fanfic of a more respectable genre instead

The fact that natural forces can be used before people find scientifically what they are is not a case for dismissing them as imaginary. If it were, we should know nothing now about electricity and the structure of matter.
