100 PROOF STUD by A.J. Lape Review & 2 Giveaways


Sometimes life smacks you right in the kisser with a whole lot of ohhhh craaaaap.
Just ask Darcy Walker.

100 Proof Stud picks up four months after No Brainer’s cliffhanger ending, and Darcy discovers the aftermath pales in comparison to the crisis her heart is in. All of a sudden it’s raining men, and this teenage heroine’s personal life turns her inside out.

Before she can sort out her feelings, she chases a spray-painting vandal and stumbles upon a case of identity theft right in her own backyard. Darcy jumps into the fray headfirst to prove she can hang with the big boys.

But it’s not just to hang…nope, she’s chasing reward money.

Tapping her band of misfit brothers for help, she turns Valley upside down trying to unearth the criminals. Problem is, the cloak and dagger goes high-octane, and she raises the bar on “crazy” in the process.

Bullets ring out…dead bodies appear…and Darcy rubs shoulders with the ultimate sociopath. In the midst of murder and mayhem, will she finally follow her heart or build a fortress of lies around it? Will she even get the chance?

About This Author

A. J. Lape’s Darcy Walker Series broke into the Top 50 books in Teens Literature & Fiction within 36 hours of its release. It has spent numerous weeks in the Top 100 in Mystery Series and Teens, Mysteries & Thrillers Categories as well as being one of the Top Rated in its genre. A self-proclaimed neurotic and troublemaker at heart, a perfect day for A. J. consists of writing, watching her kids play sports, drinking Coke, then lounging in her pajamas by 8PM.

She lives in Cincinnati with her husband, two feministic daughters, an ADD dog, a spoiled hamster, and an unapologetic and unrepentant addiction to Coca-Cola, with a lifelong love affair with bacon. She studied English, Journalism, and Political Science at Morehead State University and left the business world when her daughters were born. Her love for suspense and a good story was born from watching Mystery Science Theater with her sister during childhood. That and any B movie with comedic undertones they could get their hands on.

When she’s not riding that razor-thin line between creativity and insanity, she likes to read, watch too much cable TV, or cheer like a banshee at her daughters’ sporting events. She’s a huge hometown sports fan and loves to watch the Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds whenever she can.

A. J. loves to connect with fans! If you would like to receive emails of upcoming releases, please sign up for her distribution list by visiting her homepage at and clicking the “contact” tab.

My Review:100 PROOF STUD by A.J. Lape


100 Proof Stud is full of giggles, hot boys, hot girls and drama of high school. There is also some crime happening around the school area. Darcy plans to solve she can use the money for Christmas.

Darcy is in high school. Her best friend is Dylan Taylor. She hangs around with a lot of guys that she has adopted into her gang with their permission or not. She works in a book store. She gets into messes because she is curious and finds dead bodies.

Dylan Taylor is a rich school jock who is also smart. He and Darcy have been best friends for years. Now his feelings are changing. He is a good guy but has a temper especially if someone is hurting Darcy.

Darcy was asked by coach to figure out who spray painted his car. She agrees for a reward. She also finds some fake Ids and falls into looking for the students who are thought to be behind it. The leader is even thought to kill a couple of guys who have found out who he is. Darcy gets her friends into helping her.

Their is good suspense of who is behind the different crimes. Also with different people who want to see her safe.
There is plenty of soap drama with relationships around her with adults and high school students. Dylan wants to start dating Darcy but she is afraid it will damage what they have. Plus she thinks he deserves better than her.

Darcy has a fake identity called Jester. So her family won't find out what she is doing. a reporter has had his identity stolen and was calling her Aunt about it.

The story was a little long for me had to read it over a couple of days. Do like Darcy and her friends.
I have the first two books to read about Darcy and her friends and will look forward to reading them too.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give honest review of 100 Proof Stud.
