If You stay by Barbara Meyers

Description

A runaway daughter. An unforgiving father. A reluctant artist.

At 18, Joy Laurence took off with the local bad boy who left her widowed, broke and pregnant. Back then her formidable minister father hung up on her when she called home. Now that she’s back, he slams the door in her face. But for her adult daughter’s sake, she is determined to make peace with her family.

Although romance isn’t even on her radar, Joy can’t resist troubled and talented Granger Sullivan’s rough edges and skilled hands. And in his rebellious teenage daughter she sees her own reflection.

Joy’s excitement dies when reconnecting with her past results not only in broken hearts, but broken lives. Including hers.
She could admit defeat and walk away a second time.

But if she stays, can she find a way to reconcile with her loved ones and build the life she wants?

My Review

Not an author I’d read before, but it’s good to swap things up once in a while (and I’d been read a lot of dark romance,) so with that in mind I grab the book…..

Joy took off with her boyfriend against the wishes of her father. Never thinking or looking back…..

But happiness isn’t always promised, and when Joy is left a young mum and widow, she reaches out to her father. 

After telling her what he thinks of her, he hangs up, poor Joy is on her own…..

Future Joy and her daughter have grown up and Joy has returned back to her by home town. 

She hopes that enough time has passed and that her father will finally forgive her and make room in his heart for his daughter and granddaughter. 

But it’s not going to be that easy, her father still wants nothing to do with her!! 

But with her mother on her side, Joy hopes to melt her fathers hard heart, but that comes with it’s own set of issues. Maybe Joy shouldn’t have come back! It’s only causing friction between her parents.

Granger is a struggling single father with a stroppy teenager. He has his own issues, one of abandonment (his wife left without looking back) and of inadequacy! (He blames himself for his wife leaving) so trust is a big issue with him.

Granger knows of Joy from his youth, he had a crush on her as a kid. But can he let his guard down and let another woman in? Or will his insecurities and lack of trust ruin what could be a second chance at happiness for Granger and Joy?

I had tears as I read this book, both with happiness and sadness.

There is families at war, sullen teenager angst, trust issues, condemnation and misunderstandings.

We also get tender moments, funny moments and moments where bridges are trying to be mended.

We get points of views from a lot of people, at first it was a little too much information being thrown at you.

But the further into the book we get, then more sense all the voices make. They all need to have a say.

it’s not just about a second chance romance, it’s about forgiveness, about families mending themselves and each other.

But when doors are shut in your face time after time, doesn’t that tell you something? Isn’t it time to admit defeat and move on….. Joy could, but I get that she’s a fighter. She’s had to be.

Granger is a little antisocial, but I get why.

There are so many characters that you’ll identify and sympathise with.

I read it in one sitting, and I’d highly recommended the book.

Oath-Breaker: Angel of Death & Demons: Book One by River Starr

Oath-Breaker: Angel of Death & Demons: Book One by River Starr

My Review

Having lost her mate in battle, Ayla isn’t going to let her friend suffer at the hands of demons, so she’s off to rescue her…..

The Grim Reaper/the Angel of Death, whatever name you give him he’s still going to take your soul and judge it at the end of the day. But in this story he’s a Demon King.

The war between good/evil, Demons/angels has been written time and again, the spin on this one is Demon/celestials (angels by another name)

The pull between these two characters is almost instant. But she’s was mated before, so she shouldn’t feel the pull as strongly, should she?

And that’s the beginning of their story with Lucius telling her many times that they are fated to be together.

There is reluctancy on both sides as they are suppose to be bitter enemies.

Wow!! What a great read.

I’d not read anything by this author before. But it’s something I’m going to remedy in the near future.

Bringing this book to life (any book in fact) is not an easy task. You have to have flow and continuity, and easy rapport with the main characters, do the additional characters add or detract from the story? Well this author managed all of that with ease. In-depth descriptions had me immersed in this world within minutes.

Holding my breath as the battle between the forces of good and evil became blurred! Smiling as Ayla had her King on his knees, but not before having her on her knees literally before him.

There is both action and romance in this book, and the action is kept at a pretty quick pace. It doesn’t drag on unnecessarily, or try to fill pages.

And the ending, well I wasn’t expecting that!! I can’t wait to see where book two leads us.

🚀ARC REVIEW 🚀

Taken (Cyborg Liberation Book 1) by Maddie Taylor and Morganna Williams

Taken (Cyborg Liberation Book 1) by Maddie Taylor and Morganna Williams

Description

After suffering the cruelty of humans for five long years, he should despise her.
But the smoldering intensity of their connection won’t be denied.

The moment I saw the fiery-haired beauty, I knew she was destined to be mine.
Taking her, however, is impossible.

Despite the temptation after three seemingly endless years in space, as leader, I must protect all twelve females in the colony. Their DNA is imperative to saving our cyborg race. I laid down the law to my men: look but under no circumstances touch.

Except once I inhaled her intoxicating scent and felt her lush curves against me, my resolve vanished. I had to have her.
 
Not for a day. Not for an hour. But forever.
And damn the consequences.

Publisher’s Note: Taken is the first book in the Cyborg Liberation series. It contains fast-paced action, drama, and sexual scenes that may not appeal to everyone. If you don’t like firm-handed, dominant cyborgs who never hesitate to lay down the law before making it all better, you may want to pass on this book.

Publication Date 29/4/2022

My Review

With the destruction of the female cyborgs, Freeman has the task of trying to maintain the peace and the continuation of his race.

(Whilst fleeing the females ship was targeted and destroyed)

Answering a distress call wasn’t on Freeman’s list of things to do. But answering the call might just save his comrades…..

They need female DNA to start the process of creating female cyborgs. And what happens to be on this planet……. females.

One in particular calls to Freeman, he’s putting it down to not seeing a woman for over three years, but we all know it’s more than that.

Shay is the unofficial leader on the small planet she’s called home for over three years. Her grandfather and father worked on the planet, so when a deadly virus wiped out most of the population, the remain survivors turned to Shay.

They’ve been abandoned by Earth, they have to face facts, there won’t be a supply ship or a rescue ship coming for them.

They need a miracle (Kristyn the security officer would say they needed coffee more!)

Being abducted wasn’t on Shay’s schedule. Even when she gets a look at her captor! Being asked to give DNA to start a new race isn’t sitting well with Shay, so you can bet she’s going to give her captor hell!!

So can Freeman get Shay to cooperate with his plans? And if she does, will he be able to let her go?

And what about the survivors on the planet? And will he be able to keep his men in line once they find out he wants to keep Shay for himself? (There’s been talk of taking the females as slaves/captives)

Loved meeting new characters, especially Ransom.

Ransom is his second in command (and has no filter) some of his comments had me chuckling, whilst other comments had me wanting to throw something at him!

Can’t wait to see the female who gets to take him on 😉

Am I ready for the next book? You bet I am 😊

A Monstrously Mythic Romance

I thought I was living the dream—until the fateful day I found my boyfriend in bed with my boss. As a professional copywriter, it was the tired cliche that hurt me the most. 

What’s a big city girl to do but pack my bags and go solo on that Grecian cruise I’d booked with my ex. Who needs a man when you have tropical breezes, stunning vistas, and free cocktails with frilly umbrellas?

But thanks to a freak storm, I find myself washed ashore on a mysterious Greek Isle inhabited by 12 hotties determined to help me in any way they can.

What in the rom-com setup is this?

Somehow, I’ve ended up inside a famous Greek myth, tasked with conquering the very men I find myself unable to resist—despite their fur, fangs, tentacles, extra appendages, and extremely large…secrets of their own.  

Danger lurks around every crumbling ancient ruin, but the longer I stay, the more I wonder if I want to return to my old life at all. 

Here, I get to be the heroine of my own story, and it might just be time to rewrite history. 

IF YOU LOVE

😎 A Bad B from NYC (deal with it)

Irish Rogue: An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance (The Donnellys) (Brooklyn Kings) by LK Shaw

Irish Rogue: An Arranged Marriage Mafia Romance (The Donnellys) (Brooklyn Kings) by LK Shaw

Description

Anya

Five years ago I was sold. Used. Abused. Now, I’m broken. My loving family thinks a husband will fix me. I have no desire to get married, but I’ll give them what they want. Except it will be on my terms. And I know just the person to ask.

Paddy

Getting married is at the top of the list of things I swore I’d never do. So there’s no way I’ll agree to Anya’s ridiculous proposition. Yet, somehow, I find myself saying yes. She says we both can live our lives without interference from the other. It seems like the perfect plan.

Until it isn’t.

Publication Date 26/4/2022

My Review

Seventh book in the Brooklyn Kings Series. I’ve not read any of the previous books, and I don’t think that’s a problem, but I was intrigued whilst reading this one, so at some point I’ll go visit the rest of the Kings series (Sadly not on KU🤔)

Five years on and Anya still suffers from her ordeal at the hands of a monster. Quiet and withdrawn, a shadow of her former self. But pushing her into marriage doesn’t seem to me to be a great idea, and Anya is of the same mind, so she needs a husband in name only!

Paddy is an Irish man through and through. Fighting and s€x is the only thing he thinks about. Not marriage, and certainly not tied down to one woman. So when Anya approaches him with a proposal, he’s the first to shoot it down…..

Together they come up with a plan, well Anya does. Marrying Paddy would solve all her problems, pointing that out to him though proves problematic! But they will live separate lives, so surely that’s got to be a win-win. Right?

Her family aren’t happy with her choice, and nor is Paddy’s. But it’s something they’ve agreed on, and for better or worse they intend to go ahead.

Paddy intends not to let marriage slow his appetite for the fairer sex, he’s still going to chase who he wants.

You have to feel sorry for Anya, after being tortured and abused, she only wants a quiet life

And Paddy, well I want to smack him around once or twice. The arrogance of the man was pretty hard to read at first. And don’t think this marriage will change him, he’s still an arms trader/dealer/buyer. His job is a morally grey patch.

So can they make this marriage of convenience work?

This is an enemies to lovers read. A dark tale that you have to read the TW (trigger warnings) before going in.

Luckily we don’t get too much of Anya’s abuse told to us.

And it’s fun to watch how Paddy swears the marriage won’t change anything…..

My Review 

Evelyn works for Archangel (A human company/faction that capture and “study” paranormals) 

Lately she’s been feeling a little “off” her dreams are really confusing! She sees fire and strange men that she’s never seen before, but somehow knows! 

On light duties (she was injured in a battle with demons) she’s bored and frustrated. She needs to get back in the field before she goes mad with frustration. 

Fenix is an incubus, he’s the leader of a small group of ragtag incubi. (Taking those who don’t have a home) 

He’s not been home for a while, he’s on a mission. 

One of utmost importance to both himself and his eternal (fated) mate! 

This series just keeps getting better. We’ve met Fenix in previous books, and you wonder would he get a story, and boy did he 😊 

I absolutely love this series, and it’s usually an automatic click for me (I don’t even read the blurb anymore) 

The author weaves such a fantastic story. She draws you in with a rich description of life for these characters. 

Both these characters were amazing, watching as Evelyn struggles with her conscience (she starts to disagree with the way Archangel “study” the paranormals) and her dreams. 

We keep hoping the Fenix will find a way to break the curse that both he and his mate are under. 

We start with their past, killed a mage’s wife/partner, and now they are cursed to find one another through eternity, but then they are doomed, as Fenix is forced to watch his mate die! This happens time and again, and no matter how much he tries to stay away from her, he’s drawn back to watch the curse play out….

But this time he’s going to play it safe. Since the last time she died (he wasn’t with her! but felt through their connection) he’s been following leads, he needs to find the original mage who cursed them, and then maybe they can finally be together forever. 

It’s great to catch up with previous characters. The storyline is very well thought out (this story runs alongside other books on this series) 

It can be read without reading the other books in this series, but I guarantee you that once you’ve read this book you’ll want to read the others. And if your an avid reader of this series, then you’ll know what I mean. 

So besides the story of Fenix and Evelyn, we have another story that could (with time) appear. And I do hope so, because that’s a story I’d love to read. 

Can’t wait to see where we go next.

My routine was simple – classes, work, repeat – then an unearthed family secret changed everything. Four mysterious men shattered my life and stomped on the pieces until I had nothing left. They were strangers to me, but I was no stranger to them. They had been watching me… waiting until the time was right to strike. The peculiar, dangerous magic that surrounded them has always been there in the shadows, just out of sight to normal people. I needed to get away from these depraved, alluring monsters. Go somewhere they could never find me. 

 They said they would chase me, hunt me down because I belong to them. I may not have been the woman I spent years preparing to be, but I wasn’t their pawn or their property. I didn’t ask for danger to follow me like a shadow over my head, pushing me deeper into a world I am not prepared for. They promised they’d catch me, but they never expected that I was better at disappearing than they thought possible.

Blurb:

Will losing everything be enough to save them, or will it break them forever?

 

Alexander

Krystina offered me her heart, and I’d given her mine freely and without reservation.

She was the angel who guided me to salvation, lighting up all the places inside me that had been dark for most of my life.

There was no denying the connection we shared.

But now, she was the one who had fallen into darkness. 

I could control a great many things, but I couldn’t free her from the black abyss.

As hard as I tried, I had no way to save her—especially after she changed all the rules.

 

Krystina

My husband was as beautiful as he was possessive. I needed him like I needed the air I breathed.

So why did I feel like I was suffocating?

I supposed every honeymoon period had an expiration date, and it seemed as if Alexander and I had reached the end of our bliss.

Now I was shrouded in loneliness and a cold chill of uncertainty.

So when destiny shifted in the most unexpected way, I found myself daring to hope again. 

My only problem was Alexander.

He didn’t see things like I did.

It didn’t matter how much I craved him. I had to break free of the ties that bind.

Either Alexander would be with me, or he would be against me.

 

Breaking Stone is the stunning conclusion to the International Bestselling series, where Alexander & Krystina’s devotion to each other will be tested like never before. Will they finally get what their hearts desire, or will the Fates give them a challenge that will break them?

ARC REVIEW

Always Mine: A Small Town Friends-To-Lovers Romance (Honey Mountain Series Book 1)

Always Mine: A Small Town Friends-To-Lovers Romance (Honey Mountain Series Book 1)

Description

AN AMAZON TOP 50 BESTSELLER…

He fights fires for a living, but the flames building between us may be too big to extinguish.

Niko West is the most beautiful man I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Six feet, four inches of broody, chiseled Greek god in a firefighter suit.
He’s also been my best friend since kindergarten.
He always says the only solid thing in his life is our friendship.
He’s Honey Mountain’s favorite player and I’m what you’d call a relationship girl.
But when I find myself single for the first time since turning sixteen, I make Niko an offer he can’t refuse.
Who better to show me what I’ve been missing?
But now that we’ve crossed that line, I don’t know if friendship is enough for me.

Publication Date 21/4/2022

My Review

If your looking for a slow burn, small town, friends to lovers author, then look no further than Laura Pavlov.

Niko is a ladies man, he respects women, he just doesn’t do commitment. His childhood wasn’t the nicest, beaten by his drunk father, ignored by his mother (she always took his fathers side) no wonder he’s afraid of commitment…..

Vivian has the job, the love of her family. The one things she wants is just out of reach. Her ex cheated on her, then had the nerve to send a wedding invite to her whole family!

Usually friends to lovers isn’t high on my reading list, but with this author there hasn’t been much of hers I haven’t read.

The drama, the angst, the tears (and that’s just mine 😆)

You watch as Niko realises that maybe a relationship with his best friend might not be so bad. You just hope nothing screws this up, as Niko may just run for the hills!

If I remember correctly there are five sisters, so we should get five books in this series.

Can’t wait…….

ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

The Dachshund Wears Prada: A Novel (Paws in the City Book 1) by Stefanie London

The Dachshund Wears Prada: A Novel (Paws in the City Book 1) by Stefanie London

Description

How do you start over when the biggest mistake of your life has more than one million views?

Forget diamonds—the internet is forever. Social media consultant Isla Thompson learned that lesson the hard way when she went viral for all the wrong reasons. A month later, Isla is still having nightmares about the moment she ruined a young starlet’s career and made herself the most unemployable influencer in Manhattan. But she doesn’t have the luxury of hiding until she’s no longer Instagram poison. Not when her fourteen-year-old sister, Dani, needs Isla to keep a roof over their heads. So, she takes the first job she can get: caring for Camilla, a glossy-maned, foul-tempered hellhound.

After a week of ferrying Camilla from playdates to pet psychics, Isla starts to suspect that the dachshund’s bark is worse than her bite—just like her owner, Theo Garrison. Isla has spent her career working to make people likable and here’s Theo—happy to hide behind his reputation as a brutish recluse. But Theo isn’t a brute—he’s sweet and funny, and Isla should not see him as anything but the man who signs her paychecks. Because loving Theo would mean retreating to his world of secluded luxury, and Isla needs to show Dani that no matter the risk, dreams are always worth chasing.

Paws in the City

Publication Date 3/5/2022

My Review

I absolutely love this cover. It’s so different from the usual bare chested dudes holding dogs (😆) and I love Stefanie Londons writing style, it has me smiling from almost the first sentence.

Theo is a recluse, and he likes it that way, grumpy, sullen and a total grump. But today he’s goodbye to his beloved grandmother, the only person he cared about after his parents died (so you could see why he’s the way he is) he doesn’t do public speaking very often, and he hates being in the limelight, but his grandmothers reputation and standing has him swallowing his fear and sadness, he’ll do her proud…..

Isla has gone from influencer to pariah overnight! A simple mistake has her scrabbling around for a job, but nobody wants to hire her! Desperate she takes the only job offered to her. Dog walking a pampered pooch!

Reading as these two stumble through hilarious moments had me laughing at loud. Then sniffling through tears as heartfelt moments are spoken about.

So many emotions in this book.

Spicy moments that catch you unawares, and if your reading it on the train (then be prepared to blush 😆) There are a also few sad moments that will have you reaching for the tissues.

I loved Camilla, she just stole the book, a grumpy, snappy dog who hated everyone. But with her going to psychics, and slowly becoming an internet star you fall in love with her, and now I want a Dachshund.

So can the team of grumpy/sunshine ever work?

And what will Theo think of Isla turning his grandmother’s dog into a tool that will push Isla back into the heady heights of social influencer?

End note to this review, the ending was just perfect.

Grab a copy of this book, you won’t be disappointed.

Feel good read that I highly recommend.

At eighteen, I chose to join the Marines, just like my great grandpop. The easiest part was telling my parents…but the hardest was telling the woman I loved and leaving her behind.

Now, I’m a civilian trying to find my place stateside, and I end up back home in River Falls. For ten years I never stopped loving Cassie Newton, and when I see her again, it only solidifies my resolve for a second chance.

As my demons threaten to consume me, she proves again and again why she’s always been my saving grace. We may have missed our chance all those years ago, but Marines never quit, and I’ll be damned if I ever let her go again.

TRIGGER WARNING – This book goes into descriptive detail about military PTSD with thoughts and actions of suicide that may be triggering for some. Reader discretion is advised.

The instant the small, dark-eyed human tumbles into my arms, I know. This female is mine. All mine.

Beautiful, tough and too smart for her own good, Deputy Delaney Michaels is everything my wolf craves.

For the first time, its hunger roars in my blood: Claim her, it demands.

Too bad I’m a criminal, an outlaw—even among my own species.

She doesn’t belong in my world.

I might ruin her.

But when my Alpha puts his own claim on Delaney, all bets are off.

I’ll take her. Keep her safe in my lair.

Even if it means breaking every rule.

𝗗𝗲𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗲𝘆

Werewolf. Possible criminal. Idris Elton is all wrong, wrong, wrong for me.

So, why does he light me on fire like no other?

That ice-blue gaze of his seems to stare right into my soul, to know what I really need.

But I must resist him.

And it’s working—

Until he snatches me. To keep me safe, he says.

Safe? I’ve never felt so imperiled in my life.

Yet my own body betrays me—I crave the wicked touch of my captor. He’s rough, brutal.

And I can’t get enough.

He promises to protect me. But who will protect me from him—my fierce, obsessed werewolf?

Wicked Schemes: an enemies-to-lovers college romance (Ridge Rogues Book 4) by Renee Harless

Wicked Schemes: an enemies-to-lovers college romance (Ridge Rogues Book 4) by Renee Harless

Description

I was broken.

Twisted.

Damaged.

No one knew about the childhood that had been stolen from me. I lived my life without trusting anyone and silently questioning every move.

The purple eyes of Haley Sinclair haunted my dreams. One bad decision changed her life, but she single-handedly destroyed mine.

A baby wasn’t part of the plan, but I knew that it was my chance to prove everyone wrong. I feared ruining a relationship with Haley and moving forward with her would pave a path filled with regrets.

There was one thing I knew for sure – love couldn’t be built on lies.

Publication Date 26/4/2022

My Review

This is book four in the series, I’ve not read the previous books, but after reading this one, I’m definitely going back to read the others.

It’s a series about family, about how not your blood family aren’t necessarily the best people.

Haley lives with heartbreak. Her mother took her own life after a scandal involving her father. He was proven innocent, but the family image had been tarnished! Trying to move on is hard for both her father and Haley, but together they take it one step at a time.

Her music is her solace, it takes her away from her heartache and sorrow for just a little while. But recently she’s not been able to write…..

Rylan is part of the Ridge Rogue crew, they are all brothers, but not by blood. Adopted by the same family. Coming from a home that didn’t care if he lived or died! Rylan has found it hard to trust, to open up…..

They have one night together whilst on a college trip. Haley thinks it’s more, but the next morning he completely blanks her! And at school it’s just the same. Was she just an other notch on Rylan’s bedpost?

But as they share the same group of friends it’s going to prove awkward (a couple of Rylan’s brothers are dating Haley’s friends) a truce is needed……

But sparks are still flying, obviously it’s still unfinished between them…..

So when Rylan suggests it’s just s€x and nothing else, Haley agrees (which sort of throws Rylan) and so the affair begins. It’s fun at first, but Rylan begins to want more!

It’s told in dual points of view, so we get to read both reactions to the story.

It’s all going pretty well when a bombshell is dropped! Will Haley ever forgive Rylan?

There are dark moments in this book, so I would advise you to read the warnings before jumping in.

And now we wait for the next book.

Oh, and if you sign up to the authors newsletter, you get a free book within this series. (Don’t think you can get it anywhere else)

ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

Highland Justice (Sons of Sinclair Book 3) by Heather McCollum

Description

As the new chief of Clan Mackay, Gideon Sinclair knows the importance of maintaining order at any cost. To keep the conquered clan in line, Gideon must mete out ruthless justice or risk losing their precious new peace. But from the moment he meets Cait Mackay—aye, from the moment the sweetness of her lips captures his—all of Gideon’s careful objectivity is well and thoroughly compromised.

Cait knows that kissing the brawny Highlander is a dangerous game. It was bad enough she picked his pocket to feed the children in her care, but sometimes a desperate woman must disguise her crimes any way she can. Only her act of deception has made things worse… Because one kiss with the Highland’s most brutal chief leaves her breathless and out of her depth.

Now Gideon must choose between his duty and his heart when his lovely thief is accused of treason against the king himself.

Each book in the Sons of Sinclair series is STANDALONE:
* Highland Conquest
* Highland Warrior
* Highland Justice

Publication Date 26/4/2022

Highland Justice (Sons of Sinclair Book 3) by Heather McCollum

My Review

Third book in this series, but easily enough read without reading the previous books.

Gideon is the third Sinclair brother. Known as Justice (his father named them the horsemen for fear/respect purposes) so Gideon has been trained to judge and dispense justice. And it’s been that way for as long as Gideon can remember, to him there is either wrong or right, nothing in between. That is until he has to judge the one person he kissed!!! The thief has to be judged and the sentence carried out….. What’s the new Chief to do, if he hesitates then his clan won’t respect him!

Cait is sick and tired of the rich feeding off of the poor. So she might take a few things now and again. (But only to help her cause)

A strong and independent person, Cait will give Gideon a run for his money. Surviving a previous marriage has made Cait wary of becoming involved with another man, so her time and effort is put to good use looking after children who have no one.

And as they become closer, Gideon will have to make the hardest decision he’s ever had to make! Cait is accused of stealing from the king! Did she? Or is it someone out to discredit her?

Romance with mystery thrown in 🔍 is fast becoming a favourite of mine.

I love this series, and the ones before them too 😉 the descriptions will have you wishing to visit Scotland as soon as possible. The emotions this author writes about will have you cheering and crying along with the characters. I can’t usually put this authors work down, it’s a long night reading 😉

A few steamy scenes, a few scenes where secondary characters steal the limelight. And a love story that will change the lives of not only Gideon and Cait, but the whole village too.

If historical romances are your thing (and they are mine) don’t delay, grab your copy.

A recommended read 😊

The Reaper: A New Adult, Vigilante, Standalone, Slow Burn Romance (The Soldiers of Anarchy Book 2 by Nikki J Summers

The Reaper: A New Adult, Vigilante, Standalone, Slow Burn Romance (The Soldiers of Anarchy Book 2 by Nikki J Summers

Description

From the International best selling author of The Psycho, comes an all new vigilante, slow burn, standalone romance. This story contains darker subject matter, so reader caution is advised. Please heed those trigger warnings.

Some people are born in darkness.

Some have darkness thrust upon them.

Me?

I was the darkness.

Forged in the flames of my stepfather’s hatred, I learnt from an early age that life was cruel, harsh, and unforgiving. This life would destroy you unless you stood up for yourself, took control, and fought back.

I was always a fighter, but my soul remained charred from the fires that consumed me. My heart an empty cavern filled with echoes of a life I’d never live. Branded with a vengeance that drove me to do for others what no one had ever done for me.

I ran in a pack with my soldiers, but I was a lone wolf. A solitary soul set to wander this earth.

People avoided me.

They feared me.

But not her.

From the shadows, she watched.

In the darkness, she waited.

In her dreams, she saw something no one else did.

She saw the real me.

But dreams aren’t meant for monsters like me. And when a devil from my past comes back to haunt me, I have to make a decision for this life and the next. I need to keep her safe at all costs. My little raven.

Death waits for no man.

But neither does The Reaper.

The Reaper is a standalone, new adult romance. There are scenes of a violent and sexual nature in this story, therefore it is intended for readers of 18+ years. Please take note of the trigger warnings listed at the beginning of this book.

Publication Date 28/4/2022

My Review

Second book in The Soldiers of Anarchy Series, and I loved it. A dark romance that’s starts off slow , but once we get going, then there is no stopping the reaper possessing his Raven..

Devon (known as the Reaper) lives up to his name. Abused as a child by his stepfather, promises himself he will exact retribution for all the abuse he suffered at the hands of his father and his friends…….

Daughter to the local vicar, Leah May (Raven) is a lost soul, she doesn’t seem to fit in anywhere. Invisible to most and that’s the way she likes it. But the only person she wants to see her doesn’t even know she exists. But she’s about to change that….

This book is dark, but I didn’t think it was as dark as book one (The Psycho with Olivia and Adam)

The Soldiers live and protect their home turf to the best of their abilities. Yes they are violent vigilantes, but only to those who deserve it.

They run a club on outskirts of Sandland and Brinton Manor (The Sanctuary) it provides them with an income and a place to be themselves.

When Devon finally notices Leah then he’s totally fixated on her, he regrets not “seeing” her earlier. But I don’t think he was ready to have his Raven in his life.

When you find out that Leah is the vicar’s daughter, you’ll assume she’s either a good girl and will be ruined by the reaper, or a wannabe bad girl looking to stick her fingers up to the world. She’s neither, she’s an amazing character and totally the right person for Devon. She has her own dark side and demons to battle, so she gets Devon.

So how can a boy from the wrong side of the tracks ever be good enough for a vicar’s daughter?

Your going to have to read it and find out 😉

This book deals with a few things that could be triggers for people (so please look at the warnings before grabbing this book)

We get to catch up with Adam and Olivia, and also get to see the rest of the soldiers. Here’s hoping they all get their stories.

A highly recommended read, and I can’t wait for “Joker’s” book.

ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

Wolf Hunter (Moon Kissed Book 1) by Harper A. Brooks

Description

Falling for her target wasn’t part of the plan.

Tasha Ward exists as a phantom. Drifting from place to place, she can blend in to the point of invisibility—a trait highly useful for a deadly assassin like her. But after years of perfecting her skills, she wants to be seen.

No… It’s more than that. She wants the alpha of the murderous Redcliff wolf pack to look her in the eye as she plunges her knife straight through his heart. Traveling deep into the pack’s territory alone, Tasha’s prepared for war… until she finally faces the pack’s ruggedly sexy leader and does the one thing she’s never done before. Hesitate.

As the new alpha, Reid Holden doesn’t agree with many of the traditions his father believed in. Especially taking a woman to sacrifice once a year. Unfortunately, being on top means he’s always a target, and venomous snakes are everywhere. Even in his own family.

Tasha’s meant to be another enemy, but Reid is finding it impossible to hate her. It doesn’t help that his wolf has already claimed her. She may want him dead, but she might be the one person he’ll end up risking everything for.

Sizzling romance meets pulse-pounding suspense in Wolf Hunter, the latest gripping novel from USA Today Bestselling Author Harper A. Brooks!

Wolf Hunter is book one of the Moon Kissed Series.

Publication Date 28/4/2022

Wolf Hunter (Moon Kissed Book 1) by Harper A. Brooks

My Review

A new series by a relatively new author to me. But as I enjoyed her last book I decided on another by her.

This one is totally different from the last book I read of hers.

And I loved it.

Tasha is an assassin, a hunter renowned for her hunting skills. But her true objective is to find and kill the alpha that took her sister. She’s getting closer, honing her skills until the day she can dispense her own brand of justice!

Reid being the new leader of his fathers wolf pack brings its own issues. A strong and fearless leader he might be, but changing pack politics and traditions will take time, and not all the pack members want the changes!

It’s hate all the way for Tasha, she can’t nor won’t trust Reid.

Reid on the other hand has mixed feelings about this witch, she stirs things in him that will only cause trouble!

It’s a great story, and one I can’t wait to continue. Both Reid and Tasha are great characters, both strong, both independent, but both wanting more out of life. Neither of them expecting to feel the way they do about the enemy.

Julius (Reid’s older brother) is an interesting character, what side will he fall on? Good or just out for himself?

Liam ((Reid’s younger brother) is a poet, a sensitive soul, but he’s hiding something too! And with double crossings and betrayal around every corner, who can Reid really trust?

Magic and mystery is the thread in this book. Reid needs magic to keep the shields up that protect his pack lands, but with Tasha telling him there is something wrong within the pack, Reid is going to need more than magic to keep his pack together.

So when Tasha and Reid form a tentative alliance (she wants to find her sister, he needs a spy) you know it’s going to spell trouble.

The book gets you involved, you look at each character and wonder are they hiding something.

You also have the main characters deal with their own issues and attraction to one another.

And when an opportunity to escape arises, will Tasha actually want to go?

And the way this book ends! It had me yelling at my kindle!

I couldn’t put it down. I highly recommended read. And one I’ll be continuing…..

Leading us into book two…..

✨Blurb ✨

High school is hard, but being a single, teenage mom makes it almost unbearable.

I can’t wait to graduate and leave this cove full of heartache, and judgment far behind me.

I want to explore the ocean and all that it has to offer.

Well, that’s my plan, anyway. Until my heart gets involved. 

After losing my soulmate to the sea, I never expected to fall in love again.

Let alone with two guys. One from my past, the other a broody mysterious bad boy.

Where did he come from and why is he so intent on claiming me? 

They say to keep the sharks below your board, maybe I should have listened.

A war is brewing beneath the waves, fighting to destroy everything I know and love. Determined to take my soul once more.

Some worlds are never meant to be discovered.

But I won’t let the sea win this time. They can’t have him.

ARC REVIEW

Fractured Dynasty: A Dark Mafia Romance (Five Families Book 4) by Penelope Black

Description

It was supposed to be my happily ever after.
For the first time in a long time, there was a promise of peace. So my Italian heirs and I made plans—big, life-changing plans, and tried to move on with our lives.

But I was naive to think that there weren’t snakes lying in the grass, just waiting for the opportune time to strike.
It was a blow no one saw coming.

We didn’t start this war, but with the help of our unexpected allies, we’re sure as h*ll going to end it.
I vowed that I would never sit idle while my family is in danger.
And I never break a promise.

Publication Date 13/4/2022

Fractured Dynasty: A Dark Mafia Romance (Five Families Book 4) by Penelope Black

My Review

This is part of a series, and although you don’t need to read the previous books, I’m definitely going back. We meet up with lots of other characters that I assume are in the other books. And as I really liked this short story, I’d like to know more 😉

So basically this is the end to the series, but as I’m going to read the series backwards, I’ll have to go in blind….

Maddison (Maddie/Cherry or Raven depending on who is talking to her) which does make it a little confusing. Is the center of their world, but I get the feeling something happened in a previous book to make her jumpy, so she needs to see one of her men at all times to feel safe! What the hell happened?

Matteo Rossi is the oldest brother and head of the “Rossi family.” A lot of responsibility on those shoulders, but with the help of his brothers and best friend he protects Maddie the best way he can. And tries to bring the five families back in line.

Rafael (Rafe/Aries) brother to Matteo is Maddie’s protector, hard as nails to everyone but his girl. Head of security

Leo is the baby of the bunch, the joker the one who puts a smile on his girl’s face. He’s had to face his father a few times (and has scars to prove it) but with that all in their past (we hope) he can just live for the moment.

Dante might be Matteo’s best friend and his “Underboss” but Maddie rules him, he’s died for her (and apparently something like that might have happened!)

So this story essentially is just an epilogue to their main story (which I so need to read) Madison(Cherry/Raven) and her quartet of hot men.

There is a surprise that no one expects, but everyone is willing to lay their lives down for.

But with enemies still out to end this new family, Matteo is going to have to pull all the stops out, and end this war once and for all!

As I said, I haven’t read the previous books, but this has whetted my appetite for more of the Rossi family, and indeed the back catalogue of the authors books!

A wedding in Vegas that has lots of steamy moments. A few funny moments and an ending that thinks there is a new series in the pipeline.

I’m off to find book one…..

ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

End Game: A Valentine Wedding (Games we Play) by Lindsey Powell

Description

The underworld never sleeps, not even when there’s a wedding…

Joey and Paige.

King and Queen.

Meant to be.

And now they are about to make their union official.

A sprinkle of murder, a whole lot of steam, and A Valentine Wedding.

A Games We Play short story.

*It is advised to read Checkmate before End Game as it may enhance your reading experience if you do.*

Publication Date 22/4/2022

End Game: A Valentine Wedding (Games we Play) by Lindsey Powell

My Review

This is a short story that’s meant to be read after reading “Checkmate”, well I didn’t and now I’ve fallen in love with both Paige and Joey I need their story, so I’ve read it backwards again!!

Paige is a great character, she’s no shy and retiring maiden, oh hell no! She’s a kicka$$ woman who knows what she wants and knows how to get it. Being Queen of the Underworld takes a certain type of person, and Paige definitely gives off that vibe.

Joey is my new book boyfriend 😉 tall, dark and dangerous. King of his own empire, nothing or nobody stands in his way. The o my person ever to stand up to him has been Paige (and they are carrying lots of baggage from their previous book)

It’s really well written, and although just a short story, it packs a lot in.

I liked how the main characters bounce off of one another. Funny moments counterbalanced the dark moments.

A few scenes will stick with me for a while (the stripper scene for one 😉)

So now I’m off to KU (kindle unlimited) to find their story…..

Highly recommended read (but only after reading Checkmate)

ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

Betrayal: A Standalone Monster Romance (Her Monstrous Desires) by Jewels Arthur

Description

I killed my husband.

I killed that little brat who was next in line for the crown.

And now? Now, it’s time for the Evil Queen to reign. Unfortunately, it’s not going quite as smoothly as I planned…

Killing the princess awoke the creatures that lurk deep beneath the castle grounds. Creatures that legends have warned about for centuries. It would seem I have angered them.

Only a Maxwell is supposed to sit on the throne of The Azure Valley, and these creatures aren’t pleased that I have usurped their precious dynasty and claimed the throne for myself. Unlucky for them, I am not one to go down without a fight, and they are in for a lot more than they bargained for.

And I might be too. These creatures aren’t just looking to remove me from my throne, they seem hellbent on conquering me in every way a woman can be conquered. This wasn’t part of my plan at all, and I fear if I’m not too careful, I may just let them.

Publication Date 21/4/2022

Betrayal: A Standalone Monster Romance (Her Monstrous Desires) by Jewels Arthur

My Review

It seems monster romance is a big thing at the moment, and one I’d not joined in, but I love to read about Gargoyles, so when read this blurb I was in two minds.

But I’m glad I did.

Gargoyles are charged with protecting the Maxwell family, so when the next in line is killed, they are awake and looking for the culprit!

Morissa is an absolutely horrible person, killing both the king (her husband) and his daughter, she assumes taking the throne for herself is going to be easy…..

Now, I didn’t want to like her (she reminded me of the character in The Huntsman movie) but the more I read, the more she grew on me.

Being told she has to find a chalice in the recesses of the castle has Morissa livid, but if she wants the throne, then off to the darkest parts of the castle she must go…..

Lachlan, Alistar, Lennox, Finlay and Niven are our sexy gargoyles. And at first they don’t take to kindly to the new Queen….

It’s cheesy, it’s a little cringey in places, but I loved it, the characters are really well thought out, the plot (a bit holey in places) had me racing through this book. And we have plenty of steam to keep you warm 😉 descriptions really helped, I had no problem imaging the terror and horror as Morissa first sets eyes on the monsters.

It’s written in the characters point of view, so whereas Morissa comes across polished, Lachlan, Alistar, Lennox, Finlay and Niven are rough and old fashioned, I liked the difference between them.

It’s a RH (reverse harem) so expect lots of sharing and for Morissa not to choose.

But if the guardians are suppose to kill Morissa, how will this work? As the plot unravels and we spend more time in the Azure Valley (well under the castle) you’ll find you, won’t you 😉

So if you like your romance a little twisted and with a monster or two (or more) then pick this one up, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed..

Mafia Vows: Dark Mafia Romance Standalone by L. Steele

DESCRIPTION

“I think you will find it worth your time to listen to my proposition.”

“What is it?” I scowl.

“Marry me. Of course, it’s only an arrangement …”

Sebastian ‘grumphole’ Sovrano is ruthless, arrogant, and fixated on me.

The first time we meet at a bar I dump my drink all over him.

He retaliated by following me into the ladies’ …

We seem to rub each other up the wrong way every time we are in the same room.

He’s arrogant, high-handed, full of himself, and…

So very appealing.

No way can I act on the attraction that sizzles between us, right?

But I need to get custody of my daughter,

And he promises to help me.

Provided I pose as his wife.

Only problem? I can’t resist his mean smirk, his wickedness that appeals to the darkness inside of me.

But when he discovers my secret, the tables are turned.

Now my fake husband is also my worst enemy…

A single mother who’ll do anything for her child’s happiness confronts the big bad mafia prince and teaches him the meaning of love in this standalone, enemies to lovers to enemies, hate-filled romance, with an HEA.

Publication Date 21/4/2022

Mafia Vows: Dark Mafia Romance Standalone by L. Steele

My Review

As with most of this authors books, you can always rely on the MC to be an arrogant alphahole (yes that’s a word the author uses a lot)

And Sebastian is definitely one of those, but as with her other characters he’s had a side few ever see…..

The arranged marriage series has different couples, but should really be read in order to appreciate the ongoing story that run ms in the background.,

One of my favourite tropes “enemies to lovers” the hate these display for one another has you hiding behind your kindle, but when that turns into passion!!! 🥵 you’d better have a fire blanket to put out those flames 🔥

This book runs alongside her “billionaire series” and we’ve had plenty of hints at Seb, through those books and the previous “arranged marriage” series, but nothing with prepare yourself for Sebastian!

Elsa is just a great foil for our alphahole, she’s determined, resourceful and isn’t shy when telling him how she feels about.

A single mother with a daughter (who steals the show and my heart) she would do anything for. Elsa is trying to give her daughter a better life. A survivor of domestic abuse, Elsa wants more out of life, and boy does she get it with Sebastian!!

An arrangement is made to secure Elsa’s daughter from falling into her ex’s hands (he wants sole custody) Sebastian will marry Elsa. But with the arrange series, there is always a catch…..

I have to admit I liked this book, it’s been a while since I connected with the characters and the storyline, I like my smut (but even I need a story to follow) but when you start skipping pages, then that’s when I have issues.

I didn’t skip a single page, I did devour this book in one sitting.

So can Sebastian really become a father/husband material? Or will his possessive nature drive the woman he’s falling for away? And can Elsa be brave enough to ask for what she really wants?

💀Dark hero

👸🏻Quirky heroine

Some people are born in darkness.

Some have darkness thrust upon them.

Me?

I was the darkness.

Forged in the flames of my stepfather’s hatred, I learnt from an early age that life was cruel, harsh, and unforgiving. This life would destroy you unless you stood up for yourself, took control, and fought back.

I was always a fighter, but my soul remained charred from the fires that consumed me. My heart an empty cavern filled with echoes of a life I’d never live. Branded with a vengeance that drove me to do for others what no one had ever done for me.

I ran in a pack with my soldiers, but I was a lone wolf. A solitary soul set to wander this earth.

People avoided me.

They feared me.

But not her.

From the shadows, she watched.

In the darkness, she waited.

In her dreams, she saw something no one else did.

She saw the real me.

But dreams aren’t meant for monsters like me. And when a devil from my past comes back to haunt me, I have to make a decision for this life and the next. I need to keep her safe at all costs. My little raven.

Death waits for no man.

But neither does The Reaper.

The Reaper is a standalone, new adult romance. There are scenes of a violent and sexual nature in this story, therefore it is intended for readers of 18+ years. Please take note of the trigger warnings listed at the beginning of this book.

4 BOOK REVIEW

Neverwith (Neverland: Chronicles of Red Book 1) by Crea Reitan

Neverwith (Neverland: Chronicles of Red Book 1) by Crea Reitan

Description

Ira is a Fixer, a child raised and trained to “fix” broken fairy tales by an organization the Fixers refer to as DeadEnd. Because once you enter a fairy tale, there’s no getting out.

Ira has been assigned to Neverland. You know Neverland, where Peter Pan lived because he didn’t want to grow up. Neverland, with fairies and pirates. Neverland, which has consumed thirty-one Fixers before Ira and has been dubbed “toxic” by the Operators of DeadEnd. But Neverland needs to be fixed. It’s been toxic so long that every Neverland story in the real world is being transformed into something entirely not child friendly.

Ira comes from a long line of Fixers. Every female in her family for four generations had been Fixers. She’d been at DeadEnd since she was seven. And when she was assigned her world, Ira was ecstatic. She studied every rendition of Neverland, loving the new adult twists. She was psyched to see what was in store for her.

But when she enters Neverland by falling endlessly through the stars, she is not at all prepared for how dark and broken it is. There are some children, but the violence far outweighs the lighthearted, fun, make-believe world she’d imagined. And Peter Pan… well, he was not at all a child anymore.

She was equally disturbed to find that pirates, fairies, and mermaids were the least of her worries. And disheartened to discover that she has no idea what the true problem is. Where the toxin comes from. What had broken their fairy tale. Never mind how to fix it.

However, Ira was not at all disappointed to be surrounded by wonderful men. All of which were big, gorgeous, and interested – except for the elusive Pan. But who should she choose? Can she trust them? Will they help her fix their world, or are they only interested in climbing into her bed? And why was there a weird lack of women in Neverland?

Everything seems endlessly messed up and is getting less clear as she moves along. It isn’t for quite some time that she realizes the fairy tale she’s been sent in to fix has actually been infected by another…

**This is a full-length, new adult, reverse harem, dark romance novel with a ‘why choose’ ending, meaning the main character gets a happily ever after with more than one man. It contains magic, demons, shifters, cursing, explicit sex scenes, blood, murder. This is a MMFMM book with a STRONG focus on the woman (although there is some MM and MMF in here, too). This is a book 4 book series.

Publication Date 4/9/20/2021

My Review

This is a four book series, a few triggers in this reverse harem dark romance.

It’s based on the Neverland story (think Peter Pan and crew) but this is no child’s fairytale, this is definitely adult only!

Ira is a fixer (their job is to fix the problem that occurs in a world) I liked the rules that the author had given the “fixers”

◦ This is a one-way door. Once one enters, the door seals shut. It will only open again when one fails. Otherwise, should one succeed, the door will vanish forever.

◦ Your sole mission is to set the world right again. There is a wrong afoot, not necessarily the “evil” you might anticipate, but something has knocked the world off balance. Your one and only job, your sole purpose in your life once you walk through that door, is to set the world right.

◦ As stated in Rule 1, this is a one-way door. You will not be returning, nor will you ever have contact with anyone Outside ever again. Again, your primary goal is to fix the world. But remember along the way that you will need to build a life there. You won’t be coming back. Period.

◦ Yes, you can die. You are subject to whatever the laws of their universe are. Those who have gone before you have likely died while on their mission.

I really liked the other characters that started their journeys with Ira before travelling into other problem worlds (need to see if they have stories out!) strong women who have trained for years to fix whatever has broken. These worlds have had many “fixers” so are these women the people to mend the worlds that need fixing?

We meet Pan, and he’s not happy to see her. Everyone else, but not him. And the lost boys, well they aren’t boys anymore, they are now young men (so neverland is ageing them)

Ira needs answers to the many questions she’s has before she can formulate a plan to fix NeverLand.

The first couple of chapters almost made me put the book down, it felt a little jumbled (just persevere) but once we get down to the story, it’s full steam ahead, there is fighting, action, drama and a fair amount of romance. But it’s not Ira and Pan, it’s Nev (short for Never Say)

When Ira finds out that the problem is a beast that is the cause of the break in the fairytale. But finding it is causing problems.

Can Ira and her group of “lost boys” actually find the beast?

It does end on a cliff hanger, so I’m eager to see where we go next…..

Publication Date 17/2/2022

My Review

With the ending from book one still fresh in my mind, I couldn’t wait to see Ira find herself and the beast. To come into her own, the years of training should hold her in good stead.

Ira has collected a few men along the way, and it’s still ironing out her hate/hate relationship with Pan (boy there is some real tension there and it could go either way!) I get the feeling he’s jealous and so tries to discredit Ira and makes her life hard in general! He should be the one to save NeverLand and I think he’s jealous of the closeness Nev and Ira have (the lost boys are grown men with “needs”) She needs to find balance as this will be her home forever if she fixes the problems NeverLand have, or she’ll die trying! (Just like the other fixers before her have tried)

This book has dark elements that certainly weren’t in any fairytale I read about the lost boys and NeverLand.

The characters are well thought out, we also have merfolk, pirates, lost boys, faeries, and things that go bump in the night!

We have magic, we also have a little folklore thrown in.

We have moments between Pan and Nev which were so cute (Pan almost redeems himself with the way he feels about Nev) we have the fiery/antagonistic relationship with Ira and Pan, and then the relationship with Ira and Nev (which is going from strength to strength)

I like how we get inside everyone’s mind. Each being so different makes the characters easier to remember and to keep separate (lots of characters tend to make the book chaotic)

I’m really enjoying Ira’s journey to “fix” Neverland and the help she finds along the way. (She’s getting quite the harem) 😉 I would definitely recommend you read book one first as there is lots going on.

Be warned the book ends really sudden, and on a cliffhanger!!

Book three please…..

Publication Date 24/3/2022

My Review

Book three continues at the same pace books one and two did, so you’ll definitely need to read the previous two books before diving into this one.

Pan and Ira still aren’t getting along, poor Nev is in the middle trying to keep the peace and both people he cares about from killing each other!

We also have the rest of her harem dynamic to contend with, and it does get a little confusing.

It’s is still trying to find and fix the problems with NeverLand (the fairytale is broken, and it’s not full of lost boys, they are growing up and becoming angry young men!)

But fixing the problem is not as easy as Ira first thought. It seems there is something else at work too! Could Pan be behind it?

We do spend more time with the group and how they interact with one another. There are a few sad moments, and there are a few light hearted moments, but Ira is definitely the center of attention.

And now we are almost at the end of the book and the series, will book four gives us the answers we desperately need, or will Ira become another casualty in this broken world? Will Pan ever accept Ira in his world? Can they work together to figure out how to save NeverLand?

I need book four to find this things out…..

My Review

The final chapter in Ira, Elidih, Shade, Akule, Lirit, Nev and Pan’s story is finally here!

This is the fourth and final book, so reading the previous three books is a must as it will make this one clearer.

Ira has had a real battle trying to find the knowledge and the battle skills to beat the wolf that’s trying to kill the lost boys! Constantly fighting with Pan doesn’t help either, but moments have them looking at one another with more than hate in their eyes (but it doesn’t last long!)

The battles in this book are intense and vibrant in their details. I’d watch this as a movie or series (might have to be an +18 😉) it’s kept me locked to the pages until the eyes can’t stay open any more (🥱)

Demons and vampires are added to Ira’s problems, and when Pan suggests they visit the fairies 🧚‍♂️ to sprinkle dust over Ira to help her fight the wolf, it all just a little too much for her!

Throw in Pan stirring things up with her group of men, you have to wonder when Ira will snap with Pan!

I’ve mentioned Nev (Never Say) as one of Ira’s partners, and we do have a few more, but I have a soft spot for Nev (being the first person Ira meets) he’s the glue that keeps them together, he’s also the voice of reason, but that’s not to say he doesn’t get jealous when men look at Ira (who aren’t part of her ever growing harem) I also liked how he is with Pan (he’s the only one allowed to call him Peter) and how he keeps pushing Pan to accept Ira.

So will Ira be able to bring together different factions of NeverLand together to fight the wolf? Maybe if she wasn’t fighting pirates and vampires all the time she might succeed.

I honestly was kept guessing with the story, yes you could predict a few things that would happen, but the death of a character did catch me by surprise! And the fact Ira and Pan didn’t fall for each other straight away.

With each book Ira grows as a character, becoming more aware of herself and the powers she’s beginning to wield. Her confidence does take a knock or two, but she rolls with the punches, never letting the toxins that are trying to destroy NeverLand get her down.

I have to admit I’d not read this author before. But I’m definitely going to find out if Ira’s friends (from her home world) have books.

The whole series was just great.

I liked how Pan and Ira didn’t click immediately, in fact through the whole series I did wonder if they could even be friends let alone lovers!

Cleverly written and executed perfectly.

I’d recommend reading this series in order, and I’d recommend you read them now 😊

I’ll never look at NeverLand and Peter Pan in the same way again 😉

Publication Date 19/4/2022

My Review

This series just continues to surprise and delight me, even after 20 books in this series, the author comes up with fresh characters and ideas for some of the older characters we know and love.

Hella is a witch of extraordinary ability, well that’s what she advertises her abilities as. We’ve meet Hella in a few of the previous books, and I did wonder if at some point our feisty witch would get a mate!

Just gotten out of a pretty one sided relationship with a nymph, Hella is now out to have fun and no commitment.

Grant MacKinnon is a wolf shifter from Scotland, he’s also several centuries old! From a small pack in Scotland our hero is content to drink whiskey and care for his pack.

Wrong place wrong time has Grant wishing he’d never left his home.

But with the lure of finding a mate, this wolf wants his mate, and no one will get between them!

They first meet in Lucia, when MacKinnon rescues her from drowning! But is she thankful? Nope, she does a disappearing act on him and leaves him wondering what just went on!

He needs to convince her that she’s his mate, but Hella doesn’t want to be tied down to another dominant male. So they are at an impasse! And when she finds out that MacKinnon has to deliver her to the witch who cursed him! What?! Curses?! You’ll need to read to find out who and why 😉 but can MacKinnon really uphold his side of the deal?

This world is full of colour, with its action packed scenes, the tender moments and the witty banter that Hella throws out. It’s also a little scary in places (who wants to be married to a pervy nymph?) and the consequences of one’s actions!

We get to catch up with a few characters from other books, and make new friends too (a certain Unseelie Prince makes an appearance)

So, can a witch overcome her fear of being dominated and made to feel a slave? Can her wolf honestly dial back his Alphaness and not treat her like an object?

And will MacKinnon believe she’s really his mate and not some spell cast upon him?

And can they work together to evade the King of the Nymphs? Or will Hella be tied to the wrong make forever?!

And back to the vampires in the next book (can’t wait) a previous character that I’ve waited a while to read about. (Night is related to Grave, who? well read the books and find out)

I’d recommend this author and this series all day long.

It’s Long enough to satisfy the long book readers, but with enough action and passion to keep shifter lovers everywhere happy.

It’s not necessary to read the series in order, but lots of characters from previous books have been known to pop in (and her time line does mingle with other books) so if you don’t want to know if a character has mated then best to read in order.

Grab Craved by a Wolf today. You really won’t be sorry.

ARC REVIEW- NEW RELEASE

The Best Friend’s Guide to Taking Risks by Kadie Scott and Nicole Flockton

Description 

Everyone knows that the biggest risk you can take with your best friend is to cross a certain line.

When it comes to relationships, Hunter Lancing is not a risk taker. Between his parents’ terrible divorce and his own bad decisions, he’s been burned. Computers make more sense to him. Everything has a rule. Everything is defined. Like his computers, his best friend is defined, constant, and comes with rules he won’t break.

Part-time children’s party princess Natalie Morgan dances to the beat of a drum no one else can hear. The only person who truly gets her and is never scared off by her sometimes zany ideas is Hunter. But she has a big problem. Natalie keeps having all these…feelings…for her bestie.

But on a weekend getaway, a game of risky dares and one-upmanship that was supposed to just be for laughs may just end up with both of them crossing the friend zone line.

The Best Friend’s Guide to Taking Risks by Kadie Scott and Nicole Flockton

My Review

I do like a good friends to lovers read sometimes, and this one hits all the right spots.

Kadie Scott who also writes under the pen name of Abigail Owen ,who writes some amazing paranormal romances (which are some of my all time favourite books) Nicole Flockton is a new author to me, but I think I’ll be visiting her site to see what books she writes. The dual writing doesn’t always work for me, but in this case the reading is easy. Full of descriptions that have you visualising the story as it unfolds.

Hunter has a well ordered life. After being burnt by previous relationships, it’s safter to have one night stands, that way his heart stays unharmed. The one thing he can rely on is his best friend Natalie, she’d never let him down or hurt him. And so he’d never cross that line (even though he’d thought about it!)

Natalie is just a joy to read, she reminds me of a fairy, spreading joy and glitter wherever she goes 😊 her job is also her company. She works as a Princess catering for parties, she makes her own costumes and gives it 110% she loves bringing smiles to the partygoers faces, what she doesn’t like is the put downs and snide comments some parents make!

A road trip puts the two characters together in a close environment, he’s looking at relocating to Texas, so a planned visit to the area he might move too seems like a good idea, the downside….. Natalie turns it into a a fun filled weekend with almost kisses and heated glances.

But can Hunter move Natalie out of the friend zone and into a lover he can have forever?

If you want a fun filled, feel good read, then you won’t be sorry if you grab this one. A friends to lovers story that will have you laughing at their antics and keeping fingers crossed for the princess to get her Prince. There is a little angst in here, but nothing worth a trigger.

Loved the karaoke and the dares these two made each other do. I also loved Natalie’s sisters (please can they have books too?)

Can the two tell each other how they really feel? Or will they keep each other in the friend zone?

EXCERPT

I walk down the hallway with my head bowed, looking through the shots I took yesterday on my camera. Suddenly, I bump against a hard wall of muscle. The camera slips from my hands, and I hurry to grab it before it crashes on the floor. My efforts are in vain, though, as I miss it by mere inches and only have time to watch in horror as it makes its descent toward the ground.
I’m about to let out a string of curses, when a large hand snatches the camera before it hits the floor, effectively saving me a couple hundred dollars for a new one.
I straighten. “Thank fucking god,” I mutter, closing my eyes in relief. “Nice reflexes, man.”
“Thanks,” a gravelly voice says, but the words hold no warmth. My gaze jerks up, my breath getting stuck at the bottom of my throat as I inhale Asher’s scent. My eyes meet his brilliant blue ones. He takes a step back, frowning down at me. “You need to look where you’re going.”
“Sorry, I was checking out my shots.” I shrug, glancing at my camera still clutched tightly in his grip. “Can I have that back?”
Ignoring me, he asks, “Mason, right?”
Damn, that voice. It’s like he’s trying to make me hard on purpose.
I raise a brow, hoping my face doesn’t show how much his presence affects me. “Last I checked, yeah.”
His two friends, Sig and Adam, are nowhere in sight. Strange, considering they’re usually glued to his side. I’m about to make a snarky comment about it, but he speaks up first.
“Listen, I don’t know what happened between you and Addie yesterday, but I know she can be pretty nosy at times. For what it’s worth, I’m sorry for whatever she did.”
I shrug. “It’s cool.”
I finally take him in. His hair is damp; some locks are curling around his forehead and others at the nape of his neck. He’s wearing a pair of running shorts and a white T-shirt showcasing his pecs and toned arms. He probably just came back from his morning practice. God, he looks so hot. He drags his fingers through his hair, and I feel myself grow slightly hotter than I’d like.
I stare pointedly at the camera just to focus on something else, because my dick is getting hard and I notice that the image on the screen is one of the pictures I took of him. If he was to look, he’d assume…
Shit.
He follows my gaze, and I hear him inhale sharply.
“What the fuck?” he mutters under his breath as he brings the camera close to his face and flips through the pictures. After what seems like ages, he stops and looks at me, anger and confusion showing on his features. “Why the hell do you have a bunch of pictures of me on there? And don’t tell me you photographed the whole team. I’ve seen the pictures, and I’m the only one on there.”
My neck heats up as I stumble around for a valid excuse to give him, but each one sounds just as bad as the previous.
When I don’t answer, he says, “This shit is fucked up, man. Has anyone else seen these?”
For some reason, I feel the urge to goad him and see how far he can go before he snaps. Maybe because he’s making me feel vulnerable and I want him to feel the same way. “They’re only pictures, Asher. Of you, yeah, but get over yourself. It’s not like they mean I want to fuck you or something.”
His reaction doesn’t disappoint.
His eyes widen in horror, his mouth opening, then quickly closing. His gaze darts around the hallway rapidly, as if worried someone might have heard my words. Then he quickly steps forward and dumps the camera in my hands like it’s burning him. The tips of our fingers brush for an instant, and Asher leaps back as if he touched a live wire.
His lips curl in a sneer, and I can’t tell whether it’s in anger or disgust. “Do me a favor, Mason. Keep your fucking lens away from me.” Then he spins around and stalks down the hall.
I stand there, rooted to the spot, disappointment stabbing deep within my gut. I can feel the wall I’ve carefully built around myself crumbling a bit. An invisible barrier that was meant to keep me from being hurt. But, fuck if Asher’s reaction didn’t hurt like a bitch. He looked at me as if being gay was disgusting.
I toss the camera back into my bag and head for my pre-calc class.

NEW RELEASE – ARC REVIEW

Hollywood Games: A Scottish romantic comedy (The Kinloch Series) by Evie Alexander

Description

Brace yourself Scotland, Hollywood’s coming…

Rory’s found the love of his life but can he be sure Zoe feels the same? What can he offer her when his job’s on the line, and his mother’s out to destroy her? When Hollywood superstar, Brad Bauer, shows up wanting to film Braveheart 2 at Kinloch castle, it seems like the answer to all his prayers. However, there’s a catch.

Zoe’s had a crush on Brad since she was a teen. Now he’s here, hotter than ever, and convinced he was married to her in a past life. As Hollywood descends on the tiny village of Kinloch, it’s not just the castle that’s under siege.

A mystical holy man, a sexy starlet, an intense megastar and a couple pushed to the edge. Can Rory navigate the glitter storm and keep his eye on the prize, or by saving the estate, is he about to lose the best thing that’s ever happened to him?

Hollywood Games is a steamy, love conquers all, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy, with no cheating, no cliff-hanger, and a guaranteed happy ever after (HEA). It can be read as a standalone but is most enjoyed after reading Highland Games.

When Hollywood meets the Highlands, things will never be the same again…

Hollywood Games: A Scottish romantic comedy (The Kinloch Series) by Evie Alexander

Publication date 4/4/2022

My Review

This book had me in stitches from almost the first page, it’s the second book in the Kinloch Series and it’s not necessary to read that one, but then you’d miss the awesomeness that is Rory and Zoe’s story (and how it all began) and I do urge you to read it, it’s utterly hilarious.

When Hollywood comes knocking on the Castle to possibly shoot a film there. Rory sees it as an opportunity to earn money for repairs and boost the tourism for the castle. What he isn’t prepared for is the swooning of his lady love, and the declaration from Brad that Zoe was his wife in a previous life (that scene has me chuckling)

Rory is just adorable, he’s still grumpy, he’s still worried about the castle and the repairs, and he still wears those kilts (those are some of my favourite scenes😉) and he still loves Zoe.

Zoe is still fun filled and zany, but her love for Rory hasn’t diminished one bit, and if his mother kept her nose out of their business and relationship then her world would be a happy one.

New characters we love to boo at…. Brad is a self centred, egotistical plonker (idiot) and can I briefly say how much I loathe Vlad.

But don’t let those two put you off a book that will have you wiping tears from your face and holding your aching sides.

This is a book I will be returning to often, it’s a feel good book. And once it’s open you’ll be ignoring the world outside and focusing on Rory and how he fears he may lose Zoe. You’ll be rolling your eyes at Zoe mooning over a film star, and howl at the cheesey moments with Brad.

So do I recommend this book? You bet I do. And my paperback is already in order😉

Next book please……

ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE – BOOK TOUR

Irresistible Attraction.: A Opposites Attract, Grumpy/Sunshine novel. (Irresistible Series Book 2) by Marlyn Love

DESCRIPTION

Alisha McQueen is a confident woman who has always stood on her own two red stilettos. Even now, suffering from nightmares, paranoia, and aversion to men’s touch following a brutal attack, she doesn’t accept anyone’s help. But when the man who attacked her finds her home and begins stalking her, it sends her into a spiral of despair. Now what she needs is security, and the one person able to help her with that is none other than the arrogant bulldozer, Cole Walker.

***

Cole is a man who’s attached to his drama-free lifestyle; that’s the way he has managed to succeed in business while keeping the ghosts from his past at bay. But, although their personalities clash beyond reason, he’s been attracted to Alisha from the start. So, when she offers to help him with his newly discovered teenage daughter in exchange for the safety of a second apartment he owns, he can’t say no.

As they grow closer, realizing that they get along better than they originally thought, the spark between these two headstrong people burns to unbearable heights. However, the secrets and demons they keep buried deep inside force them to face new challenges. Will they and their blossoming relationship be stronger than the real evil trying to tear them apart?

Publication Date

My Review

This is a new author (second book just released) to both the world and myself. And I was pretty impressed, we kept to the storyline, we didn’t aimlessly wander and fill pages. I connected with the MC (Main Characters) pretty quickly, and I absolutely loved the story. Told in both POV (Points of View) we get inside both Alisha and Cole’s heads, we get to experience their emotions and the fall outs that their secrets and demons have on their lives.

This is going to be a night that neither will ever forget, for Alisha is being attacked, but for Cole it’s finding out he has a daughter he didn’t even know was alive!

When Alisha and Cole first meet it’s at a bar, Cole intervenes when a man starts to harass the woman he’s sat next too, but instead of thanking him, she calls him a bulldozer and walks off!

Second time they meet it’s all business. She needs somewhere safe, and he needs help reaching his daughter.

Alisha was a woman full of confidence and ambition, but within moments her whole world changed! Now she flinches every time a man approached or touches her! And now he’s found her again Alisha needs to hide!

I did find her a little abrasive at first, and a little rude! But the further you read the more she becomes likeable.

Cole is happy with his single life, his friend might have just found the woman of his dreams (book one: Simply Irresistible) but he’s not that bothered, and he just wishes his mother would leave that subject well alone! He’s a grumpy man that you find hard to like, he’s struggling with demons that we find out later in the book. But reading more of his story he thaws out his heart and let’s both Alisha and his daughter in.

Is this ever going to work? How can it when Cole keeps everyone at arms length. And she keeps having nightmares, so can they get past those fears?

The contract drawn up between Cole and Alisha is a good one, he’s to help her get past her fears. The chemistry between these two will singe your fingers, I couldn’t put the book down until it was done! The tension will have you holding your breath and on the edge of your seat.

Recommend the book? Oh definitely. And I’m planning on going back to read Nick’s book, and I’m hoping this won’t be the last we hear of this series.

Portugal, 1870

A winemaker desperate to save her vineyards…

Julia Costa is the best winemaker in the Douro. When a greedy businessman threatens the land her family has held for generations, Julia defends her legacy and independence by any means necessary.

The Englishman sent to uncover her secrets…

The last thing Griffin Maxwell wants is to waste time mired in a Portuguese backwater. Still, to guarantee a partnership with Oporto’s largest trading firm, he agrees to travel up the Douro River and chase some reluctant debtor.

A meeting of two cultures…

Nothing prepared Griffin for the headstrong winemaker. Alluring, she tempts him into enjoying Portugal’s vibrant tastes and is a threat to his carefully constructed plans. The arrogant Englishman arrived at Julia’s lands, believing himself entitled to everything, including her heart. But how can she resist an attraction headier than a vintage?

An enemy too powerful to fight alone…

When a mysterious plague decimates Europe’s vineyards, Griffin and Julia struggle to find a cure, blind-tasting their way into an intoxicating passion. But reality demands an answer: will they allow cultural differences to keep them apart, or will they fight for the love of a lifetime?

Claimed: A Second Chance Romance (Willow Springs Series Book 5) by Laura Pavlov

Publication Date 27/1/2022

My Review

The last book in this amazing series, and I have to admit, it wasn’t my favourite of the series, and as it was the one I most wanted to read I was a little miffed!

It was still beautifully written, it had all the emotions and feelings you can expect from this author, and I’ve loved reading how five women grew within this series.

But I just felt that both Ty and Ivy never really gave me the connection I really wanted.

Ty and Ivy were inseparable as kids, they did everything together, their future had been planned out, until fate played a cruel hand and they were parted…..

Ivy has done her best in the last five years to move on with her life, her business is growing, her friends are happy and has the (unwanted) attention of a high school student. (Must admit his attempts at flirting had me chuckling.) so when an unwanted bouquet of flowers land on her desk it stirs up old feelings and heartache.

Ty is back in his hometown for his sisters wedding, he’s only here for a short time and then he’s gone again.

He left under a cloud and hadn’t been back since. Being a hotshot country singer has become a bit of a drag and when your manager is pressing to do another tour and all you want is space to breathe and write your music.

Meeting up with one another stirs up so many emotions, Ivy needs to keep her cool and her head, but it’s just so hard. And Ty can’t believe he’s finally sitting next to the only girl he’s ever loved. But it doesn’t go as planned and Ty realises his girl isn’t going to mind this easy for him.

But is he going to stay? If they sort out their feelings for one another can he live up the glam and glitz of Nashville? Or will he want Ivy to uproot her life and follow him?

Working through their feelings for one another felt very therapeutic to me, Ty is struggling to write new material and Ivy needs to put her feelings for Ty out there to move on.

It’s great catching up with previous couples and characters from previous books. The girls might have found their own stories, but they’ve always been their for one another.

This story is a YA or NA read, but don’t let it stop you from grabbing this book/series. It has enough steam to keep even the young at heart (that would be me) happy.

We have happy moments, sad moments and saucy moments. We have family moments and memories that will keep you smiling long after you put the book down.

Will Ty and Ivy get a happy ever after or will he go back to Nashville leaving a broken hearted muse?

Because that’s all he’s here for…..

Isn’t it?

Off-Limits Protector : A Thrilling Suspense Romance (Agile Security & Rescue Book 3 by Jenna Gunn

Description 

There was no way I could leave an innocent woman in the middle of a shootout.

Little did I know she would turn my world inside out.

Dr. Willow Barnhill had more class than my entire home town. Not the kind of woman a man like me should want.

But want her, I did.
And I didn’t stop at wanting.
We gave and took. Drank deeply from one another. And lit the night on fire.

That was the beginning of our beautiful disaster.
She is the one thing I want to keep. Only I know she will never be mine.

But I’m not letting her go until the threat against her life is eliminated. Even if that means faking a marriage, and picking up the sniper rifle I thought I’d put down forever.


About Off-Limits Protector 


Light up your night with this sizzling suspense romance. Former Marine Corps Sniper, Andre Navarro gave up on love long ago. But becoming Willow’s protector makes him want things he never allowed himself to want before. And he knows fighting for her and a chance at a future is worth risking it all.


Enjoy Off-Limits Protector as a standalone or as part of the Agile Security & Rescue Series. No cliffhangers and no cheating in this exciting happy ever after story. Curl up with this steamy read and prepare for this protective hero to steal your heart too.

Publication Date 23/3/2022

Off-Limits Protector : A Thrilling Suspense Romance (Agile Security & Rescue Book 3 by Jenna Gunn

My Review 

Andre Navarro, ex Marine Corps sniper now working for Agile Security-Rescue, is living and breathing the job, he doesn’t have time for relationships..I love Andre, he’s a man you’d want beside you in a crisis. We find out in the book why he doesn’t do relationships. He’s calm, considerate and a no nonsense man. 

Dr Willow Barnhill can’t believe she’s in the middle of a war zone! Witnessing a drugs hit, and then being whisked away was not how her day intended to end! 

Willow for me was a great character, a strong  character with a good sense of justice, she keeps her head and doesn’t break easily. 

I liked how we get both characters POV’s (points of view) laughed at their inner dialogues and held my breath when the danger closed in. 

Fast paced action all the way through this book, plenty of plot and a few twists along the way will keep you reading this book. 

Part of a series, this is book three, I’ve not read the previous books, and I don’t think it matters where you start. 

But I’m definitely interested in reading the previous books in this series.

Throughly enjoyed the interaction between Andre and Willow. Their emotions might have stemmed from being in close quarters with one another, but it soon becomes apparent that they need one another for so much more.  

But can she break past that wall Andre has built around his heart? And what happens when the danger has passed? 

A highly recommended read if you like an action paced adventure.

My passion is writing high action, high heat, suspense and rescuer romance books with fun and unexpected plot twists.

I love deep characters who overcome pain, mistrust, and damaged pasts to find their way alongside the mate of their dreams. And always write strong women with big hearts.

My male characters are always alpha but not alphaholes. You won’t find bitchy women or catty girlfriend relationships in my stories either.

All of my books are first person and include two Point of View. I mainly write MF contemporary romance, but have a new MFM menage that is a true love story. It was super fun to write with three POVs.

Most of my books are in a series where you get to know families (5 brothers in the Archer Brothers Series, 5 brothers in The Eden Mountain Firefighters, and Teammates in the Agile Security and Rescue Series). All of the books are standalone and can be enjoyed that way too.

I’ve accomplished my dream as an author when my reader can drop into a book and forget the rest of the world.

In addition to writing, I’m an avid to traveler, surfer, snow skier, and water lover. I’m known to spend long periods on the road with the husband and our pup in our camper van where I always pick up inspiration for my next book.

ARC REVIEW

Trouble in the Green Lands (Seeder Wars Series Book 2) by J. Houser

Description 

The Game is Changing.

It’s been three years since Saff made the life-changing decision to embrace her Seeder nature and move to the Green Lands. She loves her job, her husband, her Seeder family, and everything about this enchanting new realm. Life couldn’t be more perfect. Except for the disturbing new war tactics displayed by their enemies, the Ivies.

Rachel’s senior year in high school is anything but typical. Discovering her true identity as a Seeder means learning new abilities, hiding from Ivy assassins, and preparing to leave the human world behind. But something’s not right with her powers, causing crippling self-doubt and leading her to make unlikely allies. Rachel’s ready to join the rebellion, helping to put an end to centuries of unrest amongst the green folk.

But people and promises are rarely as they seem in a war filled with secrets and misdirects.

Far from being on the same page, Rachel and her new mentor, Saff, realize they can only take the needed leap of faith by trusting each other. The ultimate goal for them both is to stay alive, find out who they can trust, and just maybe, if they can manage that, they can stop a never-ending war.

My Review 

*maybe spoilers* 

I throughly enjoyed book one, so when book two came out I grabbed it with both hands. I would recommend you read the first book as it does continue with previous storylines and characters. 

We jump to three years in the future. Saff is now a teacher, and a fully “bloomed” seeder, not living in the human world anymore, she’s fully embraced her life as a seeder. 

Ben if you remember is Saff’s brother, and his job is now a soldier/guardian of the land that bridges the lands between the Ivies and his interest in Heather seems reciprocated.

Devin is happily married to Saff and is a teacher to the older Seeder children. 

Rachel is a human with a secret (but at first she isn’t aware she’s different) she’s living a good life, doing well at school, a boyfriend and a family that loves her, that is until she starts to “bloom” (a term where the human side is overtaken by the seeder genes, and magic starts to appear) 

Saff and Rachel don’t start out as friends, but over the pages we see them battle against each other and the Ivies that want them all dead! Can Rachel accept Saff’s guidance?

This book is a fast paced read. It does jump around a little. It’s full of battles and action. The Ivies are taking the battle for supremacy to the next level, so the seeders need to up their game to stay ahead of their bitter enemies. (It’s a battle both sides have fought for many years) 

It has twists and turns, it has more detail (if possible) than the first book, and it also has a surprise that I didn’t see coming. 

I’d say it’s probably YA as romance doesn’t play a big part in this book. But lack of passion doesn’t detract from a really great read. 

And now we wait for book three …….

ARC REVIEW

Ten Rules for Marrying a Duke by Michelle McLean

Description 

Bookish Arabella Bromley never gave a fig for society’s rules—until her sister ran off with a man below her station. Now Arabella is desperate to restore her family’s ruined reputation to favor amongst the ton. She’ll have to marry quickly and well. But in order to carry off her plan, Arabella needs a duke… and she has just the rakish fellow in mind.

The Duke of Whittsley has an ungentlemanly tendency to disregard the rules. Unfortunately, a sense of mischief doesn’t excuse a high-ranking noble from family duty—especially where it concerns producing a son. And that’s where he can’t quite resist Arabella’s distinctly outrageous plan: if he saves her family, she’ll give him an heir.

Now the deal’s been struck. They have one year to achieve their goals and ten iron-clad rules to keep them on track. Like long, scorching kisses and ensuring they’re both exquisitely satisfied. And the only thing that could ruin their plan is the one thing they never planned on: love.

Ten Rules for Marrying a Duke by Michelle McLean

My Review 

Arabella’s family is a bit of a quandary! The family name and reputation are in ruins! The shame that has been bestowed upon the family!! 

The older daughter has run off to be the man she loves, but that’s not the issue, the issue is the gentleman is below her station in life, basically a commoner and a lady shouldn’t be seen together let alone run off with him! And she wants her younger sister to have the excitement of balls and being called on, that won’t happen if society shuns her! So marrying someone of good standing seems like the only solution open to Arabella, and Silas Spencer is just the Duke she’s looking for…..

Arabella is such a character, being the middle child her life should have been simple! But that’s not the case. She has a wicked sense of humour and a very strong sense of right and wrong. Convincing the Duke to see her way of thinking did have me chuckling. 

The Duke of Whittsley Silas Spencer really doesn’t like the pomp and ceremony that society brings with it. He just wants to have fun, but being the last Duke in his line now brings a whole lot of responsibility, he needs an heir, but not necessarily a wife (and the heir really should be in wedlock!) so when Arabella approaches him with a preposterous and outlandish proposal the Duke isn’t sure what to think. 

I have to admit, I wasn’t a big fan of Silas at first, his attitude and manner was just a little off putting, but with time I grew to like the character. 

Setting rules in a relationship can only spell disaster, pretending that it’s only for connivence is only going to make for heartache. 

And both these characters are playing a dangerous game. 

There is a secret that Silas needs to keep undetected, there is also the fact that the more time they spend together the harder it is to follow those rules. 

Michelle McLean Is one of my favourite historical romance authors, her mixture of drama and humour has me one clicking her work. 

She writes about strong Independent women who know what to do in a crisis. 

Always well thought out and executed really well. 

Love the descriptions of the balls/gala that are planned. 

I loved the ending, it just worked. To see what I mean your going to have to read the book 😉

A baby wasn’t part of the plan, but I knew that it was my chance to prove everyone wrong. I feared ruining a relationship with Haley and moving forward with her would pave a path filled with regrets.

I’ve loved Evie Moore my whole life.

ARC REVIEW – BOOK TOUR – NEW RELEASE

Don’t Speak by Dyan Layne

The heart always knows what it wants.

Molly wants him. He wants her.

She loves him the mostest. Aidan loves her more.

Even though he shouldn’t.

He’s heard the whispers.

Nothing but a tragedy.

A freak who hasn’t spoken since he was five.

And her stepbrother.

The heart always knows what it wants.

He loved her anyway.

But their world isn’t safe.

Nightmares are real. The boogeyman exists.

And somewhere, he’s still out there.

Waiting.

Don’t Speak by Dyan Layne

Goodreads link: https://bit.ly/3t2k3Ts

Publication Date 31/3/2022

This story spans over a number of years.

Aiden and Molly as small children are brought together through their parents, Molly’s mother and Aidan’s father marry and the two become a family. Molly is younger than Aiden by three years.

Both love each other fiercely, she is his light and his companion. He is her protector and her reason to smile.

Aiden lost his mother through a horrific event (which we find out how in the story) as a five year old boy, and hasn’t spoken since! It does t stop him from being part of the family, but outsiders look at him as a freak!

We follow the siblings through the years, as they battle those feelings for one another. Aiden knows it’s wrong, but he loves Molly with all of his heart, it’s not wrong, but he knows he’ll break his fathers heart if their feelings are ever found out. Molly has so many confusing thoughts about her brother, she loves him the mostest (she says that to him all the time) but as her feelings aren’t always as they should be, she confused, what her parents and friends say if they ever found out?

They both need to move on, and Aiden is the first to do it!!

They are moments like a car crash that’s going to happen, you can’t look away, and as the impact hits you’ll come away bruised and confused. It’s how both the MC feel, they are drawn to one another, but when Molly catches Aiden with a girlfriend it tears her apart…..

Parting is such sweet sorrow …. But for this tragic duo they’re parting is anything but sweet! Their relationship grows strained and laced with tension.

Something has to give……

That a beautifully written story. You feel all the emotions that the author wants to convey.

You want Aiden to break through his self imposed silence, you want to hug him as both child and the man he becomes.

There was not one character surplus to requirements, all had a role to play (even the bogeyman) loved his new group of friends, they accepted who he was and never judged him. The parents of Molly and Aiden were great, Aiden never called Molly’s mother “mum” but he looked on her as a mother, and I just loved Aidan’s dad who took a young girl on and gave her the love her real father couldn’t.

So can they really be together? Or are their hearts always going to be wanting what they can never have?

This author is relatively new to me, i do have another one of her books on my kindle (red door?) and if it’s as good as this one, then I’ll be knocking on that Red door soon 😉

This one is going to become a paperback as soon as I can afford it. I want to hold paper and reread the story again and again, I only wish i could read it from new, and experience it all over again.

A highly recommended read from me.

Oh and the ending……..

ENVY by Dylan Page is coming April 13th!

#PreOrderHere https://books2read.com/EnvySevenSins

Evangeline:
I died once.
When I was denied Heaven, ripped away moments before reaching its Golden Gates and sent back to Earth, a shadow followed.
I was trying to take advantage of my second chance at life. Although every day was a struggle, I was still here, still living, and I would do my best to make it what I wanted.
But that presence was always there…
It lurked in the dark, watching, and though I told myself time and time again that it was nothing, I could not shake the feeling that I was being hunted.

Leviathan:
I was the tainted angel.
The experiment. The dark one pulled from the Abyss and forced into something I wasn’t.
When I lived amongst the other angels in Heaven, I was always reminded of how I was never enough. I was imperfect, polluted, the one who would never have what the others were all gifted with upon their creation. The heavy burden I carried each day was what tipped me over the edge, was the reason I fell from His Grace, and became a Prince of Hell.
I would be forever plagued by my malice, my spite, always coveting what I could never be, what I could never have. I was consumed by my sense of resentment to Him, who I believed to be the reason I was so cursed, haunted by my feelings of never being enough.
All of that changed the day I looked upon the face of a human female… one who seemed to call to my dark, twisted, jealous soul, and I decided that enough was enough. If I was to have anything, I would have her.

** Warning!
Envy is a dark, PNR romance and therefore is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.
Envy also may contain some scenes and situations that may be upsetting for some readers. Please do not read is such material is upsetting to you, thank you.**

KINDLE REVIEW

Bad Blood: A VamPR Nightmare (Pisces Paranormal PR) book one by Bee Murphy and Niobe Marsh

Description ….

Vampires are real. But whether you’re a fang-head or a groupie, there’s trouble brewing in the streets of Seattle.

Public meltdowns, drug overdoses, rehab missteps, mistresses coming out of the woodwork? There’s nothing a spoiled starlet or a washed up rocker could throw at the renowned Pisces PR Agency that can’t be turned into promotional gold. 

But when Tuesday Matson stepped out of her SUV on that sanguine summer evening, she didn’t expect to walk smack into the biggest PR nightmare of her career. And to make matters worse? The high-powered star at the center of it all is her ex… and they’ve got bad blood.

Five years ago, Vinnie Quake messed up. Big time. But that was nothing compared to this. He’s desperate for help, and if that means hiring his ex? So be it.

There are some secrets that can be swept under the rug, but in a city brimming with anti-vampire sentiment, how do you turn a massacre into a coming out party? There’s more to this PR emergency than Tuesday ever expected, and if she’s not careful she’ll be the next headline—and for all the wrong reasons. 

Bad Blood is a paranormal urban fantasy thriller that is perfect for lovers of True Blood, Vampire Diaries, and things that go bump in the night.

Bad Blood: A VamPR Nightmare (Pisces Paranormal PR) book one by Bee Murphy and Niobe Marsh

Publication date 15/2/2021

My Review..

“Vinnie Quake, international popstar, billionaire, global chart-topping narcissistic asshole, is a vampire… And soon enough the entire world would know. Things would never be normal again.”

Vinnie is facing his biggest challenge yet. After letting his monster slip the leash, he needs to atone for what he’s done…. So many members of staff died that day, but it was the last soul that saved him, that made him leash the beast, and get help…..

Tuesday is good at her job. In fact she’s one of the best, there isn’t much that fazes her or worries her. She turned to work to get over a heartbreak that almost destroyed her! She’s looking to move on, but every time she tries, she’s let down! At least she’s got her job…..

Past history between Vinnie and Tuesday makes this for an interesting read, they were an item until he loses sight of what was important. A one night stand loses him the girl and his normal life!! The life he now wishes he still had! But life goes on and so must Vinnie, but there isn’t a day that goes past he doesn’t wish it was different.

It should just be a case of media management and containment of details. But someone wants to make both Vinnie and Tuesday’s life difficult!

Love story? No. It’s more of a mystery book. Loved the premise and the plot. I was hoping it would turn into a second chance romance, but the further I got into the book, the less I wanted romance, and more sleuthing, but we did get a few passionate moments, which gives me hope that Vinnie and Tuesday aren’t done with each other yet. Vinnie was ok, the usual self absorbed rockstar, the type that seemed to blame everyone else instead of owning his issues. Tuesday was a blast, her opinion had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion. But the fact she couldn’t move on and wouldn’t analyse what happened and settles for second best doesn’t really win me over, but by the end I was totally onboard with her and her way of dealing with things.

And by the end of the book, I think they’d both gotten perspective, and Tuesday definitely had the better part of that deal.

So how can Tuesday help Vinnie? Especially when it’s not going to be easy?

Her ideas are sound, her expertise is second to none, so can her plan work? Or can Vinnie be expected to ruin it again?

There is intrigue and a hint of this continuing into the next book. A little double dealing, and treachery!

And the next book ? I’m definitely interested in reading more of Tuesday and her PR adventures.

The Priest: Bratva Blood Five: (A Dark Mafia Romance) by SR Jones

Description…..

They call me The Priest, but there’s nothing holy about me.

Call sign: Priest

Occupation: Mercenary

Assignment: Hostage Extraction

The assignment was simple: Extract the hostage. Take out all hostiles. Relocate the hostage to a safe house.

The assignment was simple…

Until it wasn’t.

Roze is a mafia princess, but she doesn’t live in that world.

Innocent, young, and naïve, she’s become mine to protect.

Just a broken girl looking for some humanity, and a man with nothing left to give.

Yet, she’s the light to my dark and my soul yearns for her.

Lines are about to be crossed. Morals burned to the ground.

She’s the first thing I’ve wanted in forever, and I’m not about to walk away.

God help me.

This is a dark romantic suspense and trigger warnings may apply. 

Publication date 15/2/2021

The Priest: Bratva Blood Five: (A Dark Mafia Romance) by SR Jones
My Review…… 
I haven’t read any of the previous books, it does say you don’t need to, and I don’t think I’ve missed anything. 
Roze might be a mafia princess, but that’s so far from the truth, her father might be a mafia boss, but she has nothing to do with that life (but she’s happy to take the money!) and now her father’s lifestyle sees her a hostage in a horrible place, and by men that give her salacious looks!! 
Priest hates waiting, he’s more a man of action, but they need full intel before going in to rescue Roze. 
He’s been a sailor and now a mercenary, nightmares keep him awake at night, so meditation and reading keeps him balanced (hence his nickname) taking this job isn’t his usual thing, but the picture of Roze called to him, and he knew it would be him to rescue her! 
Priest’s job is to retrieve Roze and take out the men who kidnapped her. Easy, the kidnappers are amateurs and Priest is good at his job. 
Getting her to the safe house was no problem, the problem priest has is Roze herself, she’s looking at him as a hero, as he’s no hero, he needs to nip that in the bud. 
The start of the book was fast paced and really well written. 
Not too gory or graphic, and the rescue was pretty credible (no explosions or James Bond moments) if priest like to work on his own, then quiet and stealth would be more him. 
Liking Roze, but did it make her a hypocrite to not like daddy’s work, but accepts his money (nice apartment and good college) but being young gives her that childlike logic sometimes. 
Spending time with Roze is doing nothing for Priests equilibrium! The scent of her, her brave face, her kindness, they all draw him to her, but he knows nothing can come of it, she’s a job and you don’t mess with a job. But try telling his heart and dick that! His heart is falling for her and the other part of him is onboard to give her what she’s hinting at! 
Then they get the call they were dreading, they are still being tracked! Priest and Roze need to leave the safe house and get somewhere safer. 
So can priest get Roze to safety? And then what? Can he really walk away from someone who quietens his demons, from someone who lightens his days and makes him want to be a better man? 
I’m definitely going back to read the others.

Hostage: An Everyday Heroes World Novel (The Everyday Heroes World) by Jas T. Ward

Description

Jas T. Ward’s Hostage is a thrill ride of adventure with a sexy, paranormal romance twist written in K. Bromberg’s The Everyday Heroes World project.

Evan O’Brien lived his immortal existence committed to a life of hardcore service to the secret war and army of The Grid. He had zero time for love, an emotion that complicated his control on all aspects of his life. He was determined his heart had no say. And nothing or no one could change that.

Lily Devenmore spent her days working with kids in a job surrounded by books at the library. She lived as loud and as bold as being born to the Grid allowed. As love found her sisters, Lily longed for it too. But she had yet to find a man who wanted her as she was.

That all changed in one day. Not only was she held hostage but Evan also learned his heart had been held for ransom for far too long. Could they rescue each other? With the help of some of your favorite characters from The Everyday Heroes World, they just might.

Hostage: An Everyday Heroes World Novel (The Everyday Heroes World) by Jas T. Ward

Publication Date 10/9/2020

My Review

Evan works as second in command for the secret army The Grid. He’s good at his job, he works long and demanding hours so he doesn’t have time to be social, love and friendships take a back seat. 

But all that changes when a hold up goes wrong and Lily is held hostage. 

He has to face the fact that he likes her! Where that came from is anyone’s guess. 

Well no, actually that’s a lie, Evan knows exactly where that thought came from. Seems like someone has a secret thing for Lily. And he’s had it for a while…..

Lily works in a private school teaching first graders. She also works in the local library 

Lily has two sisters Emma and Rose, they both work for The Grid also. Lily and her sisters lost both their parents and their brother to the “cause” protecting civilians from the demons that hunt them. 

Love isn’t high on her list of things to do, being in love hurt, so not for Lily thank you. 

This book was so much fun to read. Set in a world where The grid is a secret army organised to fight demons and the things that creep out of hell!!! 

Organised centuries ago, and here is the thing I found the most original, the good guys were all once bad guys! Earning a shot at redemption, if they pass, they get too live an immortal life on earth (still working for the grid I wasn’t sure on that part) 

This book is part of a series. (The Everyday Hero’s World) its a little confusing finding the series.

I haven’t read any of the others, I don’t think your missing out on anything. They are connected in some way, but as they are written by different authors, it’s safe to say they don’t need to be read in order. 

But the author also has a world for these characters (and I may go and have a look) think there might be a spin off as well! 

Evan and Lily constantly bang heads, she’s too loud and in your face. Evan is a stickler for rules and paperwork, so you do have to wonder how they come together?! 

Really well thought out and written. Very descriptive, hilarious in parts (I did like Lily’s attitude) she always had a comeback or put down. 

I really liked Lily, except for her lack of self esteem, she was a pretty funny woman. Fiery and passionate, loyal to her family and close friends, but with a side that makes you want to cuddle her up close and fight in her corner. Watching her parents die couldn’t have been easy, watching her sisters gets all the attention from boys had to be hard, but Lily is a fighter, she’s come to terms with who she is, except when Evan tells her how sexy she is, it’s hard to believe him. 

Evan is a character I’d like to know more about. Centuries old, a mob bosses enforcer, he had the chance to redeem himself and took it. With fangs and a tendency to go crispy in the sun, you’d think they were vampires! Nope! According to Evan not vampires, they just share a few of the sane characteristics (think it’s the fact they’ve come from hell) 

I get the impression he can’t take time off, is it to atone for his past? He feels he has to be in control of everything. 

The chemistry once lit between these two was explosive. 

Evan started the ball rolling when they were trapped in the bunker, he told Lily exactly how he felt about her. 

So how does a workaholic commander keep the loud and brash librarian/schoolteacher? Because trying to convince Lily he wants something more than a one night stand is going to be an uphill battle

The End of Hatred (Etherya’s Earth Book 1) by Rebecca Hefner (Narrated by Devon Wilcox)

Description

These are dangerous times on Etherya’s Earth….

Slayer Princess Miranda, heir to the throne, has hated the Vampyres for a thousand years. Since the Awakening, she’s fought to protect her people, choosing to be a warrior more than a royal. When a female Vampyre washes up on the shore of her compound’s riverbank, she seizes the moment to take the offensive.  

Sathan, King of the Vampyres, distraught at his sister’s disappearance and captivity, agrees to travel with Miranda to resect the Blade of Pestilence, also hoping to change his people’s state of endless war. Although the woman hates him due to the constant raids on her compound for the Slayers’ life-giving blood, he can’t help but admire the stubborn and strong princess.  

As their journey progresses, both begin to understand that they are aligned in their hatred of Crimeous, leader of the Deamons, as well as their hope for peace between the Slayers and Vampyres. Determined to fight their growing attraction, they forge a tentative truce. But old wounds run deep, and trust is scarce. Their faith in each other must remain strong, or all will be lost….

The Etherya’s Earth series is best listened to in order so that the listener can enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a good twist and wants the listener to uncover them organically. However, listeners of romance, rest assured, each audiobook has its own featured hero/heroine and a happily ever after ending.

My Review

I’ve read and loved these books, so when the audio option came out, I was there.

Devon Wilcox has such a soothing voice. The inflections, tones and excitement he uses to tell the story had me listening for too many times in the day 😝

The story is just amazing, it tells of two factions that are constantly at war with one another.

Until a vampyre and slayer are forced to work together.

The story is a fast paced action tale. The romance is steamy, and the banter between Miranda and Sathan has you chuckling, even more so when the story is told to you. Throw in Deamons and it’s the start of a great adventure and new series.

The Elusive Sun: (Etherya’s Earth, Book 2) by Rebecca Hefner (Narrated by Devon Wilcox)

Description

Lila, a high-born aristocrat of the Vampyre kingdom, was betrothed to Sathan, King of the Vampyres, for a thousand years. The betrothal, declared by the goddess Etherya, was deemed unbreakable. Although she cared for Sathan, and loved him as her king, secretly her heart yearned for his brother. When Sathan falls for another, Lila ends the betrothal, terrified at what her life will become now that she won’t be queen.

Latimus has loved Lila since they played together on the grassy riverbank as children. Knowing that his brother was the better man, he never begrudged his betrothal to the woman he secretly loved. Now that Sathan has married another, Latimus becomes aware of Lila’s feelings. Determined to push her into the arms of a worthier man, he believes that a war-torn army commander such as he could never offer her the life she deserves.

As the war against the Deamons rages, Latimus fights for his people, protecting them against the evil Dark Lord Crimeous. When Lila suffers a brutal attack, Latimus is shaken to his core. Determined to avenge her, he acknowledges the emotion that has always burned for her in his blackened heart. But Lila has moved on and as the war ensues he worries that it might be too late to claim her….

The Etherya’s Earth series is best listened to in order, so that the listener can enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a good twist and wants the listener to uncover them organically. However, listeners of romance rest assured that each book has its own featured hero/heroine and HEA.

My Review

Again read by Devon Wilcox (who is becoming a narrator I love to listen to)

This book tells of forbidden love and continuing the battle between Vampyre/Slayer/Daemons.

Devon gives Rebecca’s story an edge, his tones just add to the tale. Closing your eyes you see the story unfold. How Lila was forsaken by her fiancé and how she finds love with another.

How Latimus yearned for another man’s woman. How bitter he had become as he watched her grow into a beautiful Vampyre and knowing she would never be his.

And the Daemons are causing trouble for both sides.

How do Lila and Latimus find love? You need to listen to Devon tell you.

The Darkness Within (Etherya’s Earth Book 3) by Rebecca Hefner (Narrated by Devon Wilcox)

Description

Arderin, princess of the illustrious Vampyre kingdom, has always marched to the beat of her own drum. Motivated by a calling to heal others, frustration consumes her since her brother King Sathan doesn’t understand her desire to study medicine in the human world. Moreover, the son of the Dark Lord Crimeous has moved to their compound, and he seems obsessed with driving her absolutely insane. Hating him for his sharp tongue and dark nature, she tries to squelch her unwelcome attraction to him.

Darkrip has been enthralled by Arderin since the night he knocked her unconscious and sent her down the river, prompting the end of the War of the Species. Never has he met a woman more beautiful and passionate. Frustrated by her dramatics, and consumed by his desire for her, he vows to stay away. For, the son of Crimeous, with his malevolent blood, could never have children or a normal life.

When Crimeous threatens both their lives, forcing them into a shared captivity, they do everything possible to escape and survive. As their connection grows, so does their attraction. Knowing they have no future together and the consequences of furthering their relationship would be disastrous, they forge ahead in the conflict against the Dark Lord. But the universe is fickle and can muddle with even the best-laid intentions…

The Etherya’s Earth series is best listened to in order so that the listener can enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a good twist and wants the listener to uncover them organically. However, fans of romance – rest assured, each book has its own featured hero/heroine and HEA.

My Review

This book is my second favourite (but a close second) story in this series.

DarkRip and Arderin aren’t suppose to be together, in fact how this story works out was just a touch of genius.

Devon gives DarkRip that air of malice and loathing that he has for Arderin, but he also gives DarkRip an innocence that Reading doesn’t always give you. In fact when I read, I hear Devon’s voice 😉

Arderin is a feisty Vampyre that doesn’t really do authority and is a constant bane to her brothers.

There is hilarity, there is banter, and there is sadness.

And Devon delivers Rebecca’s story with such passion, I tend to listen to the audio for far to long😉

COVER REVEAL

The secret by Max Monroe

Dear Fellow Bookworms,

I need your help.

I, Rachel Rose, am in quite the pickle with a hot-as-sin English Lit professor by the name of Ty Winslow, and I don’t know how to get out of it.

Let me break it down for you:

Girl meets Guy.

Girl gives Guy her underwear on a dare but nothing else identifying (like her name or number) because she plans to never see Guy again.

But Girl does see Guy again, in a very professional setting, where she is to be the Teaching Assistant to his Professor for an entire semester.

Girl would like to ignore all events of the past, but Guy is a whole list of tempting things that are hard to resist. (See below:)

​#1: Insanely attractive.

#2: The most fun a girl could ever have.

#3: Successful and intelligent.

#4: He can quote Walt Whitman at the drop of a hat—which I’m sure you know is a dangerous thing for a literature-lover.

#5: Smooth with a capital S. He could charm the panties off a woman WITHOUT the help of a dare.

And now, Mr. Hot Professor, the man I’m determined to resist, is challenging me to a competition—a playful, secret game, so to speak—where the winner takes all.

My plan? Play the game long enough to win—long enough to walk away with the upper hand—without doing something stupid like falling in love.

It’s possible . . . right?

If you have any advice, please reach out to me soon—before it’s too late.

XOXO,

Rachel

NEW RELEASE- ARC REVIEW

Pine Creek Marriage Book 2 (Pine Creek Series) by Amity Hope

Description 

Love may blossom where it’s least expected in the delightful and heartwarming Pine Creek series from Amity Hope.

Widow Amelia Baumann has sworn to never love again. She’s content to live peacefully in Pine Creek at her friend Mary’s warm, comfortable farmhouse. But then Samuel Kurtz shows up and becomes Mary’s permanent guest, making it hard to keep her feelings in check. Especially after Samuel’s six-year-old niece, Ruthie, whom he’s been raising as his own daughter, completely steals her heart.

When the bishops from another district threaten to send Ruthie to live with her distant aunt, so that she’ll have two parents raising her instead of just Samuel, he hatches a plan.

Amelia reluctantly agrees to a marriage of convenience with Samuel–only because she loves Ruthie and can’t bear to see her torn from the only father she’s ever known. Not because Samuel’s kind green eyes and charming laugh draw her in. And as long as she and Samuel are in agreement that they will simply remain friends…what could possibly go wrong?

Each book in the Pine Creek series is STANDALONE:
* Pine Creek Courtship
* Pine Creek Marriage

Pine Creek Marriage Book 2 (Pine Creek Series) by Amity Hope

Publication Date 28/3/2022

My Review 

Can a marriage of convenience turn into something more? 

This is a heartwarming story of two people thrown together for the sake of a little girl. But it turns into something more…..

Living with her friend Mary, Amelia is enjoying the quiet life. Losing her husband was a blow, so Amelia now throws herself into caring for her friend, and being there for her community. 

But meeting Ruthie and Samuel stirs up feelings Amelia needs to bury, that path will only lead to more heartache! 

Samuel is coming back to where he had happy childhood memories. He’s now a father, but Ruthie isn’t his daughter, she’s his niece? His family isn’t happy with the arrangement, so he’s moved away from his home and family, and had arrived on his aunts doorstep looking for sanctuary. 

Ruthie just stole the book for me. She was just too cute. Her attitude and comments had me smiling every time she appeared. 

So will either of them voice their true feelings? Or will the feelings they begin to have for one another never get voiced? 

Book two in this sweet romance will have you falling in love with additional characters, Ruthie and Mary for me made this book. Ruthie is a cute six year old and Mary is Amelia’s friend. 

It’s not necessary to read the first book (I haven’t) it won’t spoil the enjoyment for this book. 

So if your looking for a sweet romance or just wanting a slower paced romance, then grab this book and enjoy. 

Nicely written and really well thought out.

Not after she wakes to a room of living shadows.

Two More Lives Card Holders Series Book 2 By Kaitlyn Legaspi

My Review 

Book two starts where book one ends, so it does need to be read in order as it will make a lot more sense. 

Neela is still suffering from a huge personal blow. But training for the next round of the competition helps her get through the day. Brochan (her trainer) has been a great help) when he’s not training her, then he’s acting like a buffer (keeping her occupied) trying to help her work out who killed her father, and why do they want her dead?! And what’s with the nightmares? Are they linked to her past, or is it a glimpse into her future?

But that’s not going to stop her competing in the tournament. She has to beat Ember Redd, and then she needs answers that she’s convinced he has. 

The shadows that frighten Neela need more investigation, us there a purpose or a reason for these shadows? 

Then we have the rogue organisation that may or may not want to bring down the Card Holders Domains (magic holders can enter the tournament to win the right to rule different areas) 

Original characters like Brochan and Amil are a welcome return, and new characters such as Morissa (start out as antagonists) add a new dimension to this thrilling read. 

Another really good read, the author takes us on an emotional journey of discovery and growth. Neela is such a great character, she suffers blow after blow, but still tries to remain positive. Really well written and again quite a lot of thought and detail. Two More Lives will have you gripped until the last page. There is double dealings and betrayal, there is also Neela dealing with the loss of loved ones, and a budding romance 😉 we have laughs as well, so it’s not all doom and gloom. We get the mystery part as Neela continues to find answers to all the questions she has in her head. The fight scenes are detailed enough for it to play in your head.

I’d happily watch this as a movie or tv series. It’s engrossing and thought provoking. 

I’d probably put this in the YA category and I’d also warn that there might be a few triggers that could upset people. So read the warnings before diving in. 

And now after that ending, we have to wait for book three!

Kissing Games (Kissing Creek Book 2) by Stefanie London

Description 

The effervescent, quirky romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Stefanie London…

Injured pro baseball player Ryan Bower has plenty of reasons for not sleeping. But thanks to a steamy romance novel that’s ignited the imaginations—and libidos—of pretty much everyone in Kissing Creek, Ryan’s kept awake by the sound of his parents. Having sex. Unforgivably gross. And Ryan is almost certain that the town’s adorably quirky and troublemaking librarian is responsible.

Sloane Rickman adores everything about her little town—with the exception of its very tall and infuriatingly sexy Golden Boy. Ryan Bower may be a ball-playing hottie, but where exactly does he get off telling her what books to recommend to her oddball little book club? Good thing he’s only in town for the fall.

Now Sloane and Ryan are stuck planning the main float for the town’s parade. But somewhere between arguments over paint colors and papier mâché flowers, their fights keep turning into red-hot kisses. And between Ryan’s demanding ball career and Sloane’s life in Kissing Creek, they face the biggest game of their lives…if they’re ready to play for keeps.

Publication Date 21/3/2022

Kissing Games (Kissing Creek Book 2) by Stefanie London

My Review 

Second book in the Kissing Creek Series, and I loved it. It’s not necessarily essential to read the first book (they all stand on their own really well) but reading this book will have to trotting off to find the first book (which is a great read also 😉) 

It has hilarious moments where I laughed out loud (a little inappropriate when your at work with headphones on) 😆 

It’s also got a few moments where you just want to shake Ryan and tell him to sort himself out before he loses the best thing he’s ever had! 

Ryan is home recovering from a sports injury, as soon as he’s healed he’s away from his hormonal parents (that had tears rolling down my face) in fact the whole town seems to be in the grip of something got and heavy! 

But at least it’s taking his mind off of his career, essentially he’s too old for baseball (professional level anyway) but he’s unsure where he’s heading, so he’s a bit of a grump at the moment! 

Sloane is the local librarian at Kissing Creek, she loves it there. She loves the small town feel, and finally feels like she’s found a home she can settle and put down roots. 

Somehow these two characters are forced together to organise a float for the coming town parade. Ryan can’t think of anything worse! 

The banter between these two is such a joy to read, they bounce off of one another, and you’ll find yourself chuckling at odd moments. 

But if Ryan isn’t going to be here for much longer, then there is no point starting anything, is there? 

If you love the small town Romance/ semi sporty feel romance then grab this book and be prepared to laugh through most of it.

My Lord, My Rogue (Noble Hearts Series Book 4) by Anna St. Claire

My Review 

Book four in the Noble Hearts Series, I get the impression you don’t need to read the previous books in this series (I haven’t) 

It’s a tale of mystery and intrigue and a little romance, of lost loves and maybe a second chance at happiness. 

Honora made a mistake years ago, and she paid for it…

When I first read about our FMC (Female Main Character) I thought her immature, selfish and shallow! But following her through her story, you get to know her better, and had to admire her in the end. 

Benjamin doing his duty to king and country comes home to find his betrothed had not only jilted him, then taken her own life! 

Continuing his duty to the Royal family has Benjamin enjoying the intrigue, his mother wants him to settle down, but losing one lady love has him not wanting to experience the pain again! 

We jump three years and Honora has a quiet life, bringing up her son. No one knows her, and so she moves back home to be with her family, but in doing so, brings her face to face with the one man she couldn’t forget! 

Benjamin is shocked to see what looks like his dead betrothed riding one day, hunting down the ghost of his past, he’s shocked to find out the ghost is real! 

How can you forgive someone who not only disgraced themselves, but you as well? In this period of time ladies of society weren’t given the same rights as we have today. Dignity and propriety were everything, so being jilted was a big thing. 

He can’t understand why she didn’t just tell him! 

It’s a shortish read (13 chapters just over 200 pages) and apparently it’s an extended version from an anthology. Maybe that’s why it feels a little rushed in parts! And that’s why I couldn’t really connect with the characters. 

It is a little rushed in places, it also feels like a few things needed exposing more (a little more detail about a certain few things that happened in the book)

But I still enjoyed the intrigue, I liked how Benjamin wanted to do his duty to his country, but also to Honora. 

So can this pair find a second chance at happiness? Can Benjamin find and apprehend the person wanting to steal from the royal family? 

And will Honora be able to finally be free of her past?

Dreaming of a Devilish Highlander (Highland Shifters Book 1) by Vonda Sinclair

Description 

A devilish Highlander cursed to change form…

After defending himself in an ambush and defeating his attacker, Gavin MacTavish finds himself cursed by a woman of the enemy clan. Lady Wilona MacRae is a witch of the dark arts and the mother of his slain foe. Ensnared in the curse, Gavin spontaneously transforms into a hawk at dawn each day, then shifts back into a man at sunset. Devastated that his father has been struck with madness because of the curse, Gavin has no choice but to become chief of a dwindling clan. Fearing him as if he were the devil himself, most have fled.

A wayward lass from the future…

When Dani MacRae, a 21st century English lit professor, is given an ancient family heirloom—a brooch—she begins having sensual dreams of a gorgeous Highlander. These spellbinding dreams threaten to take over her life. But when she holds a 400-year-old claymore at a Highland games event, she’s stunned to find herself thrust back in time to 1630 Scotland, into the bedchamber of the intriguing man who invaded her dreams.

A profound love…

After kissing the bonny, unusual lass, Gavin knows she’s the only woman for him, the woman his eccentric father insists he must marry to destroy the curse. But can Gavin conceal from her what he becomes during the daytime? Surely she will reject him and leave if she finds out.

In an effort to help his ill father and his clan, Dani reluctantly agrees to marry Gavin… at least until she can find his enchanted sword, which could return her to the future. Being ripped from her beloved modern day relatives and successful career, Dani is unsure whether she can sacrifice everything for Gavin. That is… until she falls hard for him.

Once Lady MacRae learns Dani is attempting to break her evil spell, she uses any means possible to thwart the union. Can Gavin and Dani seize the magnificent love that will shatter darkness, banish evil, and restore their good fortune?

The Highland Shifter series is a new Scottish historical paranormal series from Vonda Sinclair.

Dreaming of a Devilish Highlander (Highland Shifters Book 1) by Vonda Sinclair

My Review 

Historical Romance with a hint of magic and I’m there. 

This book did remind me a little of Outlander and The Discovery of Witches (with the time travel) but also a film that I love (Ladyhawke) but that’s where the similarities end. 

A book I couldn’t put down once I started, really well thought out and written. Descriptions of the scenery had me easily imagining myself walking alongside Gavin and Dani. 

Loved the Scottish dialect and its usage in the book (some authors don’t use it correctly, and for me spoils the read.) 

Gavin is the Laird of his small clan, he became the Laird after his father became mad after a curse settles on his clan! A lot of the villagers left (frightened off) so Gavin is working hard to restore both his name and reputation. 

Gavin is such a solid character, he’s frightened and angry at the curse, but he’s trying to live his life as normally as he can (a little hard when you turn into a hawk as the sun rises!) 

Dani is our time travelling damsel. But the only distress she had was getting back to her own time, oh and avoiding marriage to Gavin! She’s an English literature professor from the 21st century, a no nonsense woman who had me in stitches with her wit and inner dialogue. Being thrown back in time would unsettle most people, and it certainly keeps Dani on her toes. 

Lady MacRae is the villain in this book, casting spells and doing her best to keep the marriage from happening. She cast the curse after Gavin 

I did feel a little sorry for her, and at times I wanted her to repent and change (if she does that you’ll need to read the book) but we also need a good villain to boo and hiss at, and Wilona more than adequately fit that remit. 

Reading about this pair did have me chuckling as you watch them skirt around their feelings for one another. Can Gavin tell Dani about his predicament without scaring her away? Will Dani want to stay in a world that has no wifi, no lighting and no running hot water? 

Can the pair break the curse? Can they live as man and wife, or will Dani be forced to live a half life with her”hawk” husband? 

This is the first book in a new series, and although I’ve not read this author or any of her previous books, I’m adding this series to my “watch for” list.

BEST I EVER HAD by S.L. Scott

ABOUT THE BOOK The storm.
The man.

Both come without warning.

My heart opens to Cooper Haywood the moment we meet. How can it resist? He’s charming, devastatingly handsome, and sweeps me off my feet before I realize the impact he’s making. And then it’s too late.

We fall too fast to worry about the consequences.
We love so hard that we ache when we’re apart.

Even though I have a past that still haunts me and he has a future that could put us at risk, none of that matters when we’re together.

Until it does.
And then everything changes.

Although the best thing he ever gave me now calls me Mommy, I can’t help but wonder if Cooper Haywood and that fateful storm were one and the same.

BEST I EVER HAD by S.L. Scott

My Review 

This is a new author to me and one I’d not heard of before. 

This story is told in three parts no cliffhanger, and as Cooper likes to quote its his life before and after meeting Story. 

Cooper Haywood has it all, but he’s constantly fighting with his family, he’s generous, thoughtful and genuine (not at all like his family) I liked we got to see his side of the story.

Story Salenger is a great character, not coming from a great background it’s made her see things in a different light, but I wouldn’t call her bitter, she’s resilient, she’s resourceful and she was great to read about. 

There is drama, heartache and sadness. But there is also joy, love (of a different kind) and we get to see how each character has grown through the book. 

First part of the book: I loved, it told of their story, how close and how wrapped up in one another they were (almost instalove feel) 

Second part of the book: I found a little slower and a bit repetitive. 

The third and final part of this book: Not nearly as long as I would of liked. But when they finally catch up with one another, I couldn’t put it down. 

Secrets and hidden pasts weren’t really necessary in my opinion (felt they were for drama purposes) the storyline was strong enough to carry it without them. 

So will I recommend this book? Definitely. It’s really well written, thought out and carried out with lots of care and consideration. 

I’m going to add this author to my ever growing list of new and to watch author’s.

Rocky Mountain Forever (Six Pack Ranch Book 12) by Vivian Arend

Rocky Mountain Forever (Six Pack Ranch Book 12) by Vivian Arend

Description…..

A return to the bestselling SIX PACK RANCH series by New York Times Bestselling Author Vivian Arend. While this book contains a stand-alone romance, it’s best read as a part of the series.

——-

It’s never too late for love.

Years ago, Mark Coleman made the only possible choice and left Rocky Mountain House before he tore his family apart. When he hears the four clans—Six Pack, Whiskey Creek, Moonshine and Angel—are working together to create a memory book, Mark also discovers the one detail that finally triggers his return.

Because he’s not just coming back to the family. Now that Dana is free and ready to move on, Mark plans to give the only woman he’s ever loved all the devotion and happiness she deserves, no matter how much sweet-talking, or dirty talk, it takes.

Meanwhile, when a shocking truth is shared with the oldest of the Six Pack sons, Blake Coleman begins a journey of assessment. Can he really fill his father’s boots and be the leader his generation turns to for guidance?

With lots of visits with all your favourite Colemans, this is a celebration of love and the lessons learned along the way.

Warning: this book is full of happily-ever-afters. Lots of I love yous, lots of babies, lots of laughter and happy tears. Pretty much, readers familiar with the series have a ton of feel-good hours of reading ahead. If you want angst—this isn’t it.

My Review…….
That was such a feel good book. 
I loved the journal entries that Mike (the oldest brother and Blake’s father) made, all his hopes and fears were felt on those pages. 
We catch up with everyone, in fact I did wonder if we would ever get to visit with Mark and Dana, and if they would ever find themselves alone to discuss the past! 
Mark is a Coleman through and through, he loved his family fiercely, enjoyed working the land. So what could make him want to leave his family and his home? A love for a woman that he left too late to tell how he felt!! Could he watch her raise another man’s family? And as it was his brother’s new wife….. So Mark packed up his truck and emotions and left The Coleman Ranch….. 
But now it’s time to come home and tell this woman how he feels! He knows it’s not going to be easy, the last time he came home it was horrible and things were said in anger, and Mark left again. 
It wasn’t until he rescued a young woman and let her stay at his section of the ranch. 
(See, this is why you need to read the other books in this series, there is a lot going on, too much to explain) and then one of his nephews began writing to him, and that’s how he knew Dana was single again…… 
Dana has loved and lost, she’s been a wife, a mother, and now she’s on her own!! It’s scary, but she has to move forward, but Dana has also had a lifetime of men telling her what to do, and now she’s making decisions for herself, will she accept what Mark is offering her? 
And Blake, the oldest son of the oldest son, his father split the ranch up after his grandfather died, but now it needs to come together and become one ranch again, but is Blake able to rise to the occasion? And when family members start to come to him with problems, Blake gets a glimpse into how his father felt! 
His wife Jaxi is an absolute favourite of mine. She runs interference, she bosses and she a general busybody. But it’s done in such a way that you know it’s done with love. 
And we can’t forget the cast of thousands (I know it’s not that many, it just felt like it) 😉
If you’ve not read the previous books (and I’ve read them all) then most of the inside jokes will go over your head. 
I see this one for fans of her previous books, it closes the chapter on the Coleman’s and the Ranch. 
We see how struggles are solved between the families, we see hilarity and a few tender moments. We catch private moments and a few hot and heavy moments too. 
It was great to see how most of the couples have grown, and there are PLENTY of babies to keep everyone busy, and whilst reading the book we have several women give birth!! 
The Coleman women are making a memory book, but unlike a scrapbook, this one is being brought bang up to date, they’ve decided that this book will just be kept updated. They are a great bunch of women, and I’d love to sit there with a coffee just soaking up the atmosphere. And when a few pictures and an entry in a diary is found, it gets the younger generation wondering who it was and what’s with the secrecy? 
The only thing I felt was the ending felt a little rushed! (Or maybe I just never wanted to leave Alberta and that ever growing ranch) 
But it was a great book, I loved it, and now I’m going back to read the series again.

ARC REVIEW

River of shadows (Book 1 Underworld Gods) By Karina Halle

Description…..

River of Shadows is an adult dark fantasy romance based on Finnish mythology and the underworld of Tuonela.

When 24-year old Hanna Heikkinen’s estranged father dies, she reluctantly makes the trip to Northern Finland for his funeral. Being in the enchanting land of ice and snow feels miles away from Hanna’s busy life back in Los Angeles, especially under the complicated circumstances.

But when Hanna discovers that her father’s body is missing, that’s when things really get weird. A mysterious man, Rasmus, tells Hanna the truth: her father was a powerful shaman who went into Tuonela, the Realm of the Dead, in order to barter for more life, and has been held captive by Tuoni, the God of Death. The only way her father can be freed is if she travels with Rasmus into the mythical underworld to rescue him.

Willing to do anything to have a second-chance with her father, Hanna accompanies Rasmus into the dark and bloody realm, traveling via the River of Shadows, stalked by dangerous creatures, monsters, and the living dead, until they finally come into the haunted kingdom ruled by Death and his family.

Only for her to be captured and held prisoner by the God of Death himself.

Turns out Death is intrigued by Hanna’s beauty and fierceness and makes a bargain with her. If she marries him, and spends an eternity in the Realm of the Dead as his wife, he’ll set her father free.

But even the most noble sacrifices come with hidden costs, and Hanna’s might involve the most unexpected of all things: her heart.

River of shadows (Book 1 Underworld Gods) By Karina Halle

My Review


A start to a new series by one of my favourite authors.


I do love a retelling of a classic, and this one reminds very much of Persephone and Hades. It’s based on a Finnish mythology story, but it’s not necessary to know about it before diving into this amazing book.

Death I found was a fascinating character, to everyone who knows him, he’s cold and calculating, being Death he has to be, but being around Hanna brings out more, a possessive but sort of caring (well he thinks of it as caring)

Hanna comes to Finland from Los Angeles to say goodby to her father. But finding out he’s not in the coffin, but being held in the Underworld (or Tuonela) by Death himself, Hanna is coerced into setting out to rescue him! Hanna a great character, a mixture of self assured and confused. She’s thrown into a world that she didn’t think existed, to a world of Gods and their evil and spiteful ways.

Being given the option to marry Death to set her father free, what would you do?

It’s beautifully written, and really well thought out. It’s a little gory at times, and a little strange, but totally engrossing, I picked the book up and didn’t put it down till it was done. Addition characters will have you either rooting for them, or wondering if they have an ulterior motive.

I was totally not expecting the cliffhanger, but I’m happy that we get more of Death and Hanna.


So if you like mythological stories and fantasy, then grab this book. You won’t regret it.

Cover Reveal for Because of Him by Millie Thomas

Title: Because of Him

Author: Millie Thomas

Release Date: March 21, 2022

Genres: Contemporary Romance

Trope: Age Gap, Single Mom, Forbidden, Parent-Teacher

Synopsis:

My sex drive died when my husband did.

Raising our four young children had been my sole focus and no matter how often my friends told me to move on, I could never bring myself to do it.

The night I walked into Stefen’s classroom, it all changed.

Who knew all it would take was a young, tall and incredibly sexy history teacher to make it happen?

For the first time in nearly six years, I could feel that fire sparking inside me again.

There were no rules against parents and teachers dating but I fought long and hard (pun intended) to keep my wanton desire for him at bay.

And for the most part, it was working.

But then my eldest invited him over for Thanksgiving and being so close to him messed with my brain.

And my libido.

Now, I’m wondering if I was finally ready to move on.

Because of Stefen, I just might be.

http://mybook.to/RomeoandJulian

Blurb:
O Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?

Forget Shakespeare, this is definitely one love story you haven’t heard.

Two men, two polar opposite walks of life.

Romeo Monroe is a successful model for one of the world’s biggest names in men’s underwear. Rich, charming, and exceptionally great-looking who also happens to be single.

Julian Carmichael is a successful construction worker and also single. Thanks to his father’s hefty financial investment, Julian is able to live a comfortable life.

So why the single status?

Because they’re both closeted homosexual men.

Both their parents work in high-profile industries and have their own secrets—a strong hatred for homosexuals, and these two men have a lot to lose if their secret gets out.

There’s an instant attraction. Their worlds collide, and these two star-crossed lovers start a dangerous and steamy affair.

Will they survive it? Or meet the same tragic demise as William Shakespeare’s ill-fated lovers?

KINDLE REVIEW

Secret of the Vampire (Deathless Night – Into the Dark Book 2) by L.E. Wilson 

Description

He was my deepest revelation and my darkest secret…..

Bad boys were never my thing, unless they existed within the pages of a book. 

Until Alex Moss came to my rescue like some sort of avenging angel. He saved my life, which is why I believed him when he told me the threat against my life was back, and only he could protect me. With his dark hair, golden eyes, and broad shoulders, the warlock was hard to resist. Yet even as his kisses made me crave more, there was something about him that frightened me. It wasn’t until I tasted his blood that I knew it wasn’t magic that brought us together, but fate. The warlock is MINE…..

I saved her from a curse, only to get caught in her spell. 

Kenya Darce was like no other vampire I’d ever met. Adorable, quirky, and sexy as hell, she turned me on with one look over the top of her black-rimmed glasses. 

But ever since the night I exorcised the spell from her body, we’ve had a connection between us. It was completely unexplainable, but it was there.

And now the thing that tried to kill her is back, and I’m the only one with magic dark enough to fight for her. 

Forbidden to go near her, I couldn’t stay away. Nothing and no one will keep me away from her.

A Note From The Author
I mentioned this in book 1, but I thought it was worth repeating… If you are new to my books, there are a few things you need to know about this series to avoid any confusion. The “Deathless Night-Into the Dark” series is an extension of the original “Deathless Night” series, picking up the storyline of The Moss Witches that was started in the original series. And, the characters from Deathless Night will be making appearances throughout this series, starting right here in Secret of the Vampire. I’m thrilled to be with these characters again, and I hope you are, too! Happy reading, and I hope you enjoy Alex and Kenya’s story!
Publication date 12/2/2021
Reading Order: 
Deathless Night – Into the Dark
Book 1 Night of the Vampire
Book 2 Secret of the Vampire 
My Review….. 
Kenya was cursed in the last book (and without giving too much away) was sort of saved by the Moss Witches Coven (Lizzy from Night of the Vampire book 1 helped her) 
She’s back working in the club her “maker” Killian owns (it’s a male strip club) she’s not 100% there, but better than she was. 
Someone or something is out there following her…. stalking her…. who? Or what? 
Alex is obsessed with the vampire he saved, he doesn’t know why, he only knows there is a deep connection between them. And protecting her is his only concern. 
But vampires and witches don’t mix. The pact forbids it (even though his cousin is now mated the the vampire leader!) 
You’d probably need to read the first book to get the whole background on Kenya and Alex, there isn’t much, and to be honest most of it is repeated in this book (but you’ll want to read the first book anyway) 😉
Alex has a secret! Does he know? His magic is darker than the rest of the coven. And his pull to the female vampire makes no sense, and then a plot twist comes along and it all a makes sense!! 
Spending time with one another shouldn’t happen, but neither can stay away. And when Kenya is targeted, Alex is the one leading the charge, he doesn’t care that both Judy (his coven leader) and Killian (the vampire leader) have told him to leave her alone. He’s going to protect her. 
Chemistry is stronger and hotter than the first book (I got the feeling Lizzy was always ready to bolt, and Killian had an entitlement problem) the connection way tighter too. 
Lots of action and plenty of spicy moments. 
The plot is also more involved (first book needs to set the stage as it were) we get that impending doom feeling. 
So now we have the bad guy added into the plot, we have the reason why he’s doing this, and boy is it a good plot. It definitely blends with the first series, and I’m glad I’d read them all (but if you haven’t, then I don’t think you’ll miss too much) 
So can Alex and Kenya really be together? How can they get past Judy and Killian? And now this new threat!! It’s going to tear both coven’s apart….. 
Oh oh oh ….. and for fans that loved the first series there is a nice surprise waiting for you (I squealed when I read it) 😆 
Who’s next? And when can I read it?!

KINDLE REVIEW

Night of the Vampire (Deathless Night – Into the Dark Book 1) by L.E. Wilson

Description

Killian walked into my new voodoo shop late one night with an urgent request – he needed me to heal his friend. Only I know absolutely nothing about voodoo, or healing. I’m just trying to start a new life with what little family I have left after my dream of becoming a star on Broadway went up in flames. 
Literally. 
At first glance, he was an average looking guy with a European flair. Nothing outside the ordinary in the city of New Orleans. But despite his nerdy-boy attire, Killian was most definitely all man. And as his black eyes made their way up my body to my face, the look reflected within them wasn’t the least bit tame.
More like predatory…

I expected her to cast me down the moment I walked through her door. But I had no choice. One of my own was dying from a witch’s curse, and only another witch could undo the spell. However, Lizzy was not what I’d expected to find. Stunned by her beauty and overwhelmed by her scent, I burned with thirst until the blood raced through my veins and my body tightened with need. 
But with one taste, she calmed the beast within me as the truth flooded my wicked soul. The witch is MINE. She is the pulse that feeds my immortal life and the bearer of my death. Taking Lizzy as my mate will bring about the end of my coven’s uneasy truce with the witches. 
Leaving her will mean my demise…

My name is Killian Rice, and I am a vampire. Come Into The Dark with this new series by L.E. Wilson, and enter her Deathless Night. A world of immortals with only one weakness: The witches who can destroy us…

Publication date 15/10/2020
My Review ….
This is a spin off from the deathless night series. 
That book had vampires that had been cursed by a witch and vengeful vampire, and with the help of their mates (witches) they broke the curse….. 
Killian’s coven has been cursed. And one of his coven is dying! He needs a witch, but as it was a witch that did this to Kenya, he needs either a new witch to the area, or he’s going to have to kidnap one (and if he does that, then it’s going to be hunting season on the vampires!) 
Killian is the coven leader, turning his “family” of vampires over the years, some have been grateful, some haven’t!! But he would do it all again!! 
The have a make strip club that they all work in, it earns them money and a way to get blood (plenty of willing hosts who want a private dance) no one dies, and everyone is happy, especially the witches!! 
Lizzy isn’t a witch or a priestess, she’s an unemployed actor who runs a voodoo shop! It’s turning out to be a lucrative venture, especially in New Orleans, it’s not her first love (that’s the stage) but it pays the food on the table, and a roof over her head. Running from New York after a series of unexplained fires, and the last one costing her the career she dreamed of and nearly her life!! 
I loved the previous books. And this proves that you can have a successful spin off series. (I’ve read a few series that have tried the spin off and route and failed!) 
Like many of the last series, most of the women were unaware that they were witches! And it looks like Lizzy is going to be one of those characters. Her aunt informs her of this fact, and Lizzy has a hard time believing it. 
And when her aunt reveals Linzy’s heritage to her, she’s sceptical at first, there is no way she’s a witch! Is there? And with Killian still asking for her help (which she’s been told not to give) Lizzy feels like she’s being pulled in two different directions! 
Characters Jamal and Kenya are great (hoping they both a story) both had sad tales to tell Lizzy. 
Jamal was a slave that was rescued and freed by Killian (but the turning of Jamal is causing friction between Killian and Jamal, even after all these years!
Dae, Elias, and Brogan are also in the coven, they work at the club (and I’m sure we will see plenty of these guys in the next books) aunt Judy (leader of the witches coven) Angel and Talin, Alex and Alice witches (Alex is warlock)
Getting the impression Angel doesn’t like Lizzy and nor does Talin. 
There is a pact between the witches and vampires, the vampires provide the protection if the witches call on them, and the witches leave the vampires alone to feed. But someone is trying to destroy the pact they have by cursing Kenya!! 
Do we see any old characters? 
So is there a link like there was in the previous series? I’d say yes there is, the witches/warlock are all Moss witches (like the previous books) And that Vampire’s Coven all fell for the same family of witches/warlock…..
Can Lizzy help restore Kenya back to health? And is she really a witch? 
Oh and someone is possibly targeting her! 
And when Killian finally tastes Lizzy, we have the same reaction that the previous books had MINE!!!! 
It’s an action packed story and I have a feeling it’s going to have some sort of bad guy in the background orchestrating it all!!

AUDIO REVIEW…. Two Souls United (Etherya’s Earth)by Rebecca Hefner narrated by Devon Wilcox 

AUDIO REVIEW…. Two Souls United (Etherya’s Earth)by Rebecca Hefner narrated by Devon Wilcox 

Description…..

Book #5.5 in the Etherya’s Earth Series

Two of the most beloved characters in the series find their happy ever after in this sweet, steamy novella…

Sam, uncle to Jack, whose strength and bravery are only matched by his kindness and compassion.

Glarys, the feisty, caring estate manager who puts everyone else first.

Two souls who aren’t searching for love but might still find it nevertheless.

Enjoy your time in Etherya’s Earth!

**The Etherya’s Earth series is best read in order so the reader can enjoy the evolution of the characters. After all, the author loves a good twist and wants the reader to uncover them organically. However, readers of romance rest assured that each book has its own featured hero/heroine and HEA.

My Review…..

Devon has such a nice voice. He gives each character their own personality. Nothing is monotone about this reading. It flows really well and I hope to hear more of him in the future. 
The narration never falters, and it’s clearly read. No mumbling or mispronouncing of names. 

This does take place i between books 5 & 6, so it’s best to read after reading those books. You don’t want spoilers now, do you? 

It’s a great little story. I did hope that Sam would get a book. Glarys was lovely. Such a perfect mate for Sam. 
We get a few fight scenes. We get interaction with some of the previous characters, and I loved catching up with them again. 
Both characters are older, so it’s nice that the older generation can still find love (you forget that the vampires can live for centuries) 
Both have insecurities that they need to work through, but helping each other to overcome them was great to read.

BOOK TOUR – ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

THE DATING DILEMMA by Mariah Ankenmann

Description 

Lexi’s Reminders

* Work.

* Don’t think about your birthday tomorrow. Or debt, your crappy apartment, and nonexistent social life.

* Re-stock wine and ice cream because that’s coming.

* Die in a raging blaze of humiliation when the super-hot and very delicious fireman waiting in your office is not in fact the strip-o-gram birthday present you suspected.

* Reschedule the fire safety inspection you 100 percent failed because of said humiliation.

* Figure out how you, in fact, agreed to fake dating Mr. Not a Strip-O-Gram Fireman to help him with a bet.

* Oh yeah, and do not fall for this guy. Seriously, they call him One Night O’Neil. Red flags all over the place.

* Remember, this is fake dating, even though his very talented, very real lips are doing some sexy things you definitely like.

* Realize bending one tiny rule can’t be that bad, can it?

* Except bend too far, and something breaks. Something you can’t get back.


The Dating Dilemma (Mile High Firefighters Book 2) by Mariah Ankenman Publication Date 24/1/2022

I love these stories and the author that writes them. Her use of words bring the emotions and the characters to life. The second book in this new series by an author I’m automatically clicking on.

Lexi is just great, she says what she thinks, and sometimes that gets her into trouble. Her center for kids needs updating, and what better person to help her than a fireman! She just had to remember he isn’t to be taken seriously!
Dyson has a bit of a reputation as a one night stand, no one gets a second date. You can‘t help being that way after your fiancé was caught in bed with your best friend! He needs a “fake girlfriend” to take to his sisters minds off of trying to get him to date properly.

The sparks that fly off these two is just electric, both think that the other one isn’t really interested in getting serious. And Lexi has sworn off dating after the last relationship went nowhere but heartbreak!

Fake romance is what this author does best. Entertaining throughout the book. It’s really hard to put it down one you’ve open it up. The secondary characters were just as fun. The sisters needs stories (and the fire crew could be ideal 😉) and there are a couple of characters that Dyson knows who could do with a prod in the right direction.

So if you like a RomCom with a little angst, but plenty of laughter and embarrassing moments. I’d recommend this one. You don’t need to read the first book, but after reading this one I wouldn’t be surprised if you don’t go back for seconds.

Savage Road (Torpedo Ink) Book 7 by Christine Feehan

Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan explores uncharted territory in the new Torpedo Ink Motorcycle Club novel.

When Savin “Savage” Pajari and Seychelle Dubois first met, their connection was instant, their attraction undeniable. Their relationship has been full throttle since day one. Even though months have passed, the passion and love between them has only increased.

Savage completely owns what he is: a sadist in the bedroom who can only get off on his partner’s pain. He believes he’s not a good man, but he loves Seychelle with a fierceness that shocks him. He wants all of her, but only if she gives herself freely with eyes wide open.

Seychelle never imagined the lure of mixing pain with pleasure, or how much she’d crave Savage’s darkness. She’s been shaken to her core, but Seychelle is committed to Savage and their life together—even though he’s keeping a piece of himself back. And to truly make their relationship work, he has to give her everything that he is, just as she is doing for him.

Savage knows that what he really needs could break his woman if she isn’t ready. She agreed to come into his world, and he’s not about to give her up. He has to find a way to let her see the monster inside without pushing her away. But the real Savage might be more than Seychelle can bear…and he knows he wouldn’t survive losing her.

Broken King (Restless Kings) by Bella Matthews

One night.

I let myself have one night with him after avoiding him for years. 

But one night was all it took for history to repeat itself.

Cade St. James was my past. He was the boy who stole my heart before he left for the Marine Corps. Now he’s back in Kroydon Hills, and there’s no mistaking he’s all man. A former MMA champion, running his own gym, and taking care of his adorable little girl. And I have to tell him our one night together is going to make him a father again.

Our timing has always been wrong.

I can do this on my own if I have to. 

I don’t need to be saved. 

I’m a King, not a princess.

I can save my own damn self.

Scarlet Kingston has always been too good for me.

She’s also always been mine.

But now, I don’t only have myself to think about. I have my daughter too. 

We’ve both been burned before. And trusting another woman, especially one who’s already broken my heart, won’t be easy. But nothing with Scarlet ever was.

As a vice president of the Philadelphia Kings, grown men fear her. 

And Scarlet wouldn’t have it any other way.  

This woman can wear as cold of an exterior as she wants, but I’ve felt her on the inside. 

She’s no ice queen.

Can we both get past the hurts from the past and live in the present?

Or are we both just Broken?

BOOK TOUR – ARC REVIEW – NEW RELEASE

Binding Rose: A Dark Mafia Romance (Mafia Wars) by Ivy Fox

Description

I was sold to my enemies.

You would think that being forced into a loveless marriage to ensure an alliance would be unheard of in this day and age. And in most cases, you would be correct in that assumption.

But not for me.

A cartel princess has no vote on who she can or cannot marry—much less love.
Any decision in my life was forfeited just by being born into the most powerful Mexican cartel there is.

Still, it does sting that I’m to be hand-delivered to the Irish mob and marry into the Kelly family, who my own brother has coined to be nothing more than bloodthirsty savages.

They’re animals, Rosa. Filthy, unscrupulous, vicious animals.

Those were his exact words, yet he still followed our father’s orders to walk me down the aisle, making sure I didn’t run from my obligation.

As if that was even an option.

All my choices were stolen away from me the minute I became another pawn to be used and abused at the hands of evil men.

Which leaves me to question…

Can a rose blossom in the dark?
Or will I have to rely on my thorns to protect me against the fate that’s been bestowed upon me?

Only time will tell if I’ll survive this cursed life or become another lost soul in these cruel and merciless Mafia Wars.


*Binding Rose is a full-length reverse harem novel in the dark and twisted Mafia Wars world.
*Recommended 18+ due to mature language, adult situations and sensitive content.

Binding Rose: A Dark Mafia Romance (Mafia Wars) by Ivy Fox Publication Date 7/1/2022

My Review

This is from a series of authors who have clubbed together to write separate books but will all interlink.

Binding Rose is a RH (Reverse Harem, one woman with more than one man) Rosa is a Mexican Cartel bosses daughter, so she’s no shrinking Violet. She’s been made aware of her duties for many years. But the one she’s finding hard to deal with is the arrangement her father made with other bosses…..

Six bosses meet up to discuss a truce, and to honour that truce, each boss will offer up a daughter to be married to one of the other five families! That way they hope to end bloodshed. Not all the families are happy, but they’ve been given ten years until the daughters are eighteen and older, and then they will be married off!

Tiernan is the son of the Irish mafia boss, his father picked Rosa’s name out of the bowl. Tiernan isn’t happy that marriage to an enemy will be his fate! His got no intention of making his new wife’s life easy! In fact he’s going to ask his brother and cousin to “take care of her” (RH part)

It starts off a little slow, but soon takes off. I loved Rosa and her attitude. I really liked how protective Tiernan was with his sister (she to be “given up as a bride” at some point) Shay (Tiernan’s brother) is a character and I really liked him. Colin (Tiernan’s cousin) is the muscle in this trio, but with Tosa he can show another side (and it’s endearing)

I wouldn’t really say it’s a true RH, as Tiernan realises he’s not the sharing type and wants Rosa all for himself! And it’s says a DR (Dark Romance) but I’m not even sure it’s a true dark romance. But it’s still a great story, and you have to admire the author for pulling it off in just one book (most RH’s I’ve read are spread out over a couple of books)

So can this arranged marriage really work when one member really have keen and the other just wants to go home?

An enemies to lovers/arranged marriage trope that ticked all the boxes.

I’m definitely interested in reading the rest of the series, and I’m adding this author to my TR (to read) author list.

ARC REVIEW

Make Me Whole (Oil Barrons Book 1) by Marie Johnston

I had a perfect life. School teacher. Married to my high school sweetheart. Little starter house that we called charming but was really just old. All I needed was the two-point-five kids and I’d be living my dream. Then my husband died. 

After the funeral, I had a breakdown that lasted for a month…or twelve. But now I’m reemerging, healing, and finding my way. It’s time to learn who I am, and whether or not I can fix a leaky sink. And by my side the entire time is my husband’s best friend Liam Barron. The single dad knows a thing or two about personal struggles, and about how to replace faucets. 

With Liam, I feel alive again. Confident. Capable. Liam has become my best friend too. Except if my parents, my in-laws, and the rest of the town had any say, I’d stay far away from the former bad boy. How do I tell them what’s so hard to admit to myself? That I’m starting to look at him like he’s more than a friend. That the heat in his eyes when he looks at me is also far beyond friendly. That like it or not, I’m ready to move on, and I want to do it with him.

Publication date 18/1/2022

My Review

I throughly enjoyed the author’s King’s Series, and when I found out that she’d done a spin off I couldn’t wait to read it.
Kennedy is a widow, she’s still mourning the loss of her husband. It’s only been a year and a half, but slowly she returning to the land of the living. And she owes that mainly to her husbands best friend/cousin Liam. He checks up on her regularly, and she feels like the only one who really understands (Derek’s parents are still grieving and expect her to remain the same way.)
Liam is a single parent (a relationship that ended badly) he dotes on his boys, but wants a better life for hiss kids away from the town he grew up in. Liam is the illegitimate child of the local oil/farming baron, he’s never been made to feel welcome, in fact if his father had his way the whole town would be against Liam and he’s be forced to move away!
This is a friends to lovers trope, and the author has done a great job of dealing with both the grief that both characters feel and the animosity that Liam faces living in the town he doesn’t feel like he belong too.
Liam has always fancied Kennedy, but when his cousin/best friend made a move on Kennedy, Liam was relegated to the friend zone! But ha’d rather have her as a friend than not in his life at all. After losing Derek, looking after Kennedy seemed second nature. Kennedy begins to look at Liam in more than just a friend way, she notices how he cares and how he looks, that then makes her feel guilty at betraying her dead husbands memory.
And when they finally admit how they feel about each other, they have to face the gauntlet of emotions and the backlash from other people!
I’m hoping it’s the start of a new series. We get to meet some of Liam’s siblings in this book, so there is plenty to write about.
Really well thought out and written in a way that you connect with the characters.
So can Liam and Kennedy really be happy in Coal Haven? Or would it be easier to move away and start somewhere fresh?

🧁ARC REVIEW🧁

Rainbow Sprinkles (Little Cakes Book 1) by Pepper North and Paige Michaels.

Blurb:

Welcome to Little Cakes, the bakery that plays Daddy matchmaker!

Ellie Wilmoth has dreamed of owning her own cupcake bakery. Now that Little Cakes is about to open, nothing can distract her. Okay, maybe one thing. While crafting her first featured cupcake, she’s interrupted by her handsome new landlord, and his commanding presence is impossible to ignore.

Garrett Erickson is enchanted by the sprinkle-covered, sugar-fueled woman renting his property. When he discovers her alone behind an unlocked door in the predawn darkness, his protective instincts won’t be ignored. Is it possible she’s the Little he’s been looking for?

Little Cakes is a sweet and satisfying series, but dare to taste only if you like delicious Daddies, luscious Littles, and guaranteed happily-ever-afters.

Publication Date 4/1/2022

My Review

So Daddies have Littles?! It’s a term that I’d heard but not read about. I wasn’t sure if I was ready for role playing, but I was willing to give it a read…..

Ellie is a baker, she’s finally turning her dream into a reality. After her beloved grandmother dies, Ellie discovers that she is the recipient of a large amount of money, so she invests in a store, hoping to bring happiness and cupcakes to everyone.

Garrett owns a lot of property and takes his role seriously, so when he notices one of his properties has lights on when everyone should be in bed, Garrett investigates…..

Apparently these authors are well known for their “little and daddy” books, this is the first one I’ve read. And although a few parts made me cringe, I enjoyed most of the book.

After reading so many dark romances with bullies and overbearing males, it was a refreshing change to read about a male who is the complete opposite. Garrett wants to care for Ellie in every way, he’s very protective and extremely caring. Ellie was a proper ray of sunshine, her outlook on life was very positive. After losing the only person she ever loved, Ellie was determined to make a go of her dream.

There are a few other people in this book, and I’ve already matched a few up for further books, I’ll have to see if I’m right 😉

It’s sweet, it’s hot in places, and it did make me chuckle in places.

There are a few more books in this series due out and I’m probably going to read them, but I’m not sure if I’ll ever venture too far into the daddy and little genre.

ARC REVIEW – BOOK TOUR – NEW RELEASE

Suffer in Silence: A Dark Mafia Romance (Malvagio Mafia Duet Book 1) by Kelsey Clayton Publication Date 7/1/2021

Description

Some say: Ask for forgiveness, never permission.

Kage asks for neither.

Especially when he gets his hands on me.

Suffer in Silence, the first book in the all-new dark romance The Malvagio Mafia Duet from USA Today bestselling author Kelsey Clayton, is available now! 

Monsters don’t hide in dark alleys.

They lurk in plain sight, clawing into your soul with cordial smiles.

They wear Armani, they drive Cadillacs, they attend fundraising balls…

And they rule the city with a merciless fist.

The Familia is a mystery to most,

and sitting on it’s throne is Kage Malvagio.

Vile.

Sadistic.

Painstakingly beautiful.

Some say: Ask for forgiveness, never permission.

Kage asks for neither.

Especially when he gets his hands on me.

I should hate him.

I should run at the first chance I get.

But how could the devil be so bad when he looks at me like that?

Excerpt

The whiskey swirls around in the cup as I sit at my desk. It’s well past three in the morning but my mind is wide awake. The knowledge of the call I have to make sits heavy on my chest, making it hard to breathe. 

I wanted to leave her out of this, not only for me but for Silas. If he knew what I’m about to do, he’d kill me himself— his relationship with my father be damned. He was right when he told me there is no part of her that belongs in this world. 

She’s too innocent.
Too perfect.
Too good to be tainted by all of this.

And yet I have no choice but to drag her into it—kicking and screaming, I’m sure.
There used to be a time when I would imagine another life for myself. One where I wasn’t the leader of one of the most powerful organizations in the world. One where a family was in the cards for me. One where she wasn’t the most forbidden thing in my life.

I used to close my eyes and live in that false reality for as long as I could. But it was exactly that. 

A daydream.
​An imagination.
​An impossible outcome for how my life will go.
​And after I do this, I’m only sealing that fate. But as much as it pains me to admit, Nico was right. This is our only option at this point. I will not lose everything my father worked so hard to achieve. 

I grab my phone and down the rest of the glass as I dial the number. It rings three times before a voice comes through the other side. Sleep laces Beni’s tone as I pull him out of a peaceful slumber. 

“Boss?” he asks. 

Closing my eyes, I utter the words and kick into action a plan I’d hoped would always be theoretical. “Execute Plan S. Let me know when it’s done.”

My Review

Book one of this dark mafia romance had me on the edge of my seat.

Kage is the leader of an Italian mafia group. A ruthless and menacing man, he answers to no one and makes his rules up as he goes.

Saxon is the daughter of a rival mafia group. She’s always lead a privileged life, not touches her unless it’s approved of first.

These two are like oil and water, they don’t mix, they are bitter enemies, and when they meet it’s like lighting a match to paper, the air literally sizzles between them. But to Kage, she collateral damage, a means to an end. And he’ll use her to get the upper hand in the oncoming war!

But with this story like most dark/mafia romances, the enemies soon become lovers, both know it’s a doomed relationship, but neither can stay away. Like a moth to a flame, Kage is drawn to the fiery Saxon. He should be looking at her as nothing more than an inconvenience, but he recognises something in her that he knows is missing from him. She holds his black heart in the palm of her hand.

I loved the friendship Kage has with Beni, it’s like best friends/brothers but Kage knows Beni would jump in front of a bullet for him. His cousins on the other hand! I would have happily slapped! Viola and Nico are nothing but trouble, and both play a huge role in trying to tear the couple apart. Spreading vicious rumours and trying to put one against the other (Viola has designs on Kage and is unhappy to see Saxon making Kage happy!)

OH my Lord!! The ending was definitely not what I expected! I’m now on tender hooks until the finale is released!!

It’s dark, it’s got a few triggers, but it’s not nearly as sadistic as a few other mafia books I’ve read recently.

But I do urge you to read the blurb and find out the triggers before reading this book.

Seven deadly Sins by Erin Coal

Description

Seven Deadly Sins is a place created to allow ordinary people to explore their deepest desires without fear or judgement. 

Amy Jenkins has used her visits there to build a successful writing career, creating tales of passionate romances despite never experiencing one herself. But someone is angry about her success and is using her books as inspiration for a wrathful killing spree. 

Detective Hayden Whittaker is still recovering from having his heart torn to shreds and won’t trust anyone. Amy is the new lead suspect in his investigation and he can’t resist trying to tame the feisty writer that is weaving her way into his heart.

Thrown together Amy and Hayden must work as a team before the killer’s wrath hones in on them.

Seven deadly Sins by Erin Coal Publication date 10/12/2020

My Review

Amy is a writer who frequents a BDSM club for her research, she’s not heavily into the scene, but she’s a lot more open minded than the detectives that knock on her door to interview her!

Hayden is the detective assigned to the case and he’s a great character, a little surly to start with (and rather narrow minded) but he seems like an ok guy (and yes I did wonder if he was the killer at one point) 😝

There is almost an instant attraction between the MC’s (main characters) but as Hayden is recovering from a recent breakup, he’s a little wary, but there is something pulling him towards Amy, throw in the fact she’s a suspect/witness to the case he’s on, this could prove disastrous for his career. But Amy is totally into him, he’s like a character from one of her books, and her libido is doing overtime whenever he’s around.

Hayden and Amy soon start to work together to find out who is trying to frame her! Using scenes from her books to murder people Amy knows, the finger points to her, but Hayden isn’t convinced (well at first he was all for arresting Amy) so they need to find evidence before the killer strikes again!

There are a few side characters that need stories, and an additional character that I fell in love with.

I was drawn in from the first words and could put it down until I was done. Nicely written and pretty well thought out. For a first book it’s a really good start to what I’m hoping is a new series 😉

Will you guess who the murderer is before Hayden and Amy do?

There are no fade outs in this book, and all the smexy scenes are there for the reader to enjoy 😉There are a few naughty scenes, but the story is mainly a murder/mystery, and your kept guessing, even throwing in a few twists to throw you off the scent.

ARC REVIEW – BOOK TOUR – NEW RELEASE

Drop Dead Queen: Dark Enemies to Lovers Bully Romance (Corium University Book 2) by J.L. Beck & C. Hallman

Description 

In the darkness they lurk, waiting for the perfect moment to strike.

Danger is everywhere, and not even Quinton can protect me. Someone wants me dead and they’ll do anything to achieve their goal.

I’m back to being a rat scurrying through the halls of Corium and I know it won’t be long till I’m caught in a trap.
The only question is, can I save myself this time?

This is a Dark Bully Romance, and book TWO of a trilogy. King of Corium must be read prior to Drop Dead Queen.

Publication Date 7/1/2022

EXCERPT:

I feel self-conscious admitting this out loud, but who knows what tomorrow holds. Hell, we might not even make it out of here.

“I’ve never been kissed before.”

Quinton’s features become a scowl. “What do you mean, you’ve never been kissed? That’s something you do in grade school.”

“Well, I didn’t.”

He shrugs. “It’s just lips touching. It’s nothing special.”

“That’s not true. Kissing is intimate. It’s passion and heart. It’s telling someone a secret with your lips. A secret only you and the other person can decode.”

We’re staring at each other now, and I can’t believe I just said all of that out loud. How could I be so stupid… all my thoughts and words become flakes of snow blowing in the wind when Quinton leans in and presses his lips to mine. His lips are like a fiery brand on my skin, and I startle at the soft caress, ready to push him away before something snaps inside of me, and I sink my fingers into his hair and hold him closer.

He devours my mouth, kissing me with purpose and confidence. I’m lost in him, drowning in him, and I never want to be and I never want to be rescued from this kiss. I can feel the same helpless emotions rushing off him. They slam into me like an asteroid hitting the Earth.

I return his kiss feverishly, afraid that it might end before it’s even gotten started.

It doesn’t end. It continues, and soon his tongue is in my mouth, and his hands are roaming every inch of my body, gripping and tracing the curves. For the first time in forever, I feel cherished and secure, and I let him continue kissing me. When his tongue touches mine, sparks of arousal ignite in my belly.

I want more, need more.

He breaks the kiss and presses wet kisses down my neck and across my collarbone. I’m dizzy with need, and I can tell he’s aroused too, and not just because of the hard cock that’s pressing into my side but because of the way his chest rises and falls and the dilation in his eyes.

He wants me as much as I want him.

Moving over the top of me, his body hovers just above mine.

“What secret did that kiss tell you?” he croaks.

“I have to force my swollen lips to move. “It told me you’re drowning too, so let’s drown together.”

Drop Dead Queen: Dark Enemies to Lovers Bully Romance (Corium University Book 2) by J.L. Beck & C. Hallman

My Review

So book two starts where book one ends. So yes you’ll definitely need to read book one. (Quick recap from book one …. Quinton and Aspen know one another through their families, it’s not a friendship, far from it. They both attend a university for criminals. Quinton makes Aspen’s life there an utter misery, a complete bully and tormentor. But somewhere along the line, his need for Aspen becomes less of a bully and more of a protector. And then a misunderstanding throws it all up in the air again!)

Quinton needs to find Aspen. He needs to explain why he said what he said and what he did.

Aspen is out of the university, but it’s dangerous to be out here, she was safer (only just though) at Corium.

This does seem to be the “in thing” at the moment! Bully Romances, and most don’t really measure up. But this one does, and I’m sorry to say book two leaves it open for the huge showdown I’m hoping for in book three! So not really a cliffhanger, more like an open door in which you have to go through to see what happens in the end. And I’m definitely going through that door when the third and final book is released!

Aspen has many enemies after including Quinton, but with time they come to an understanding! Aspen is to “give” herself to Quinton whenever and however he decides!

A lot of the interaction between the MC’s (Main Characters) is animosity, and reading this book will make you uncomfortable! But stick with the book, there are a few surprises waiting for you. And you’ll see a gradual softening of Quinton towards Aspen, but he’s not happy with that, and tries even harder to be mean to her!

But as they grow closer together with each other, someone is watching ….. Someone wants revenge, and Aspen is the target!

Please be advised that there is a lot of triggers in this book.

Her Jaguar to tame: A Dark Paranormal Romance (Paranormal Surrogate Agency Book 1) by Jasmine Wylder

Her Jaguar to tame: A Dark Paranormal Romance (Paranormal Surrogate Agency Book 1) by Jasmine Wylder

DESCRIPTION…..

Life has knocked wolf shifter Lucy Claypotts down so many times she is getting tired of standing back up.                                           She has stopped longing for a happy future but will be satisfied as long as she can maintain a stable lifestyle and keep her family from worrying.                               
Which is one reason she signed up for the Paranormal Surrogate Agency.                    
She needs the money to pay off a debt to someone, to keep the ones she loves free from a fate they thought they had escaped from already.

When jaguar shifter Nikola Engstrom’s mother died in childbirth, his grandmother declared that a demon lived inside of him Growing up, this secret demon gave him a special ability. He can walk through the minds of others. It comes with a price, though, and Nikola is tired of paying that price.

When Nikola first lays eyes on Lucy, his jaguar wants her—and so does the demon.

He is determined to keep his distance, which is not so easy when she works for him.  

Then he learns she was matched with him through the Paranormal Surrogate Agency and is pregnant with his child…
Lucy doesn’t trust the draw she feels toward Nikola but with her past creeping ever closer, he might be the only one who can save her from a life in chains. 

But can he save her from the demon within?

My Review

Publication date 28/1/2021

First book in a new series for me. And a new author.

Nikola is a Jaguar shifter, but he also has a demon living inside him, and when his demon gets the upper hand, horrible things happen. And he knows that eventually his demon will over take his mind and body, and there won’t be anything he’ll be able to do about it!  

Lucy is a Wolf shifter she has a large extended family which she loves, they might not be her natural family, but she loves them just the same. 
And so, being in debt to a dragon shifter is not a good thing! Her pack belonged to a previous dragon until they killed him! But his sister now owns the contract! Slavery forever, unless Lucy can earn enough money to buy their freedom! 

Surrogacy is a viable answer, she can carry a baby and still work, so that’s twice the money coming in. 

Everything is going great, she’s happy being pregnant for money, well that is until the parents pull out!! She’s now stuck with an unborn child! She’s going to keep it, but she just had to keep the child a secret from the female dragon!

Both Nikola and Lucy feel a pull towards one another, but Lucy is wary of getting involved, something just doesn’t feel right with her new boss! 
And Nikola doesn’t want her getting too close as the demon wants her for a nefarious purpose! 

She doesn’t know that it’s Nikola is the father! And he has a feeling the demon had something to do with it! 

It’s a little different from what I usually read, but was pretty good. 
Demon possessed shifters was a different scenario, as was Nikola’s business (making and selling sex dolls) 😂 
And the servitude that Lucy has a chance of buying out of is something different. 
The fighting between the Jaguar and demon was different too, they had actual contact rather than just thoughts. 

So when Lucy finds out who the baby daddy is she worried? Not really! Her Wolf thinks they should be together. 
But Nikola won’t commit, he tells Lucy to take the baby and run!! 

So how can these two be together? Especially if the demon wants Lucy as a sacrifice, how will Nikola survive the guilt? And can Lucy ever pay off the debt owed to the dragon? 

It’s part of a series, but it finishes here, there is no cliffhanger.

the women who only want my billions to f*k off.
This was supposed to be easy,
but someone wants to tear us apart.

Now Amelia’s carrying a secret…
And I will do anything to protect her
…and our perfect gift.

This is a full-length steamy stand-alone contemporary romance with a happily ever after!


Publication date 27/11/2020

My Review…..

Amelia is escaping her old life, and embracing a new one. 
Her boyfriend cheated on her, so she left her old life to find a new one. She found a new job as a doctors office manager in a small town where no one knows her or her situation. She’s pretty pleased with herself, but she’s the only one! I get the distinct impression she’s had an uphill battle from an early age. Her mother has been ill for most of Amelia’s life!
Get the feeling she’s really bitter. But what can she do about it, she’s not prepared to blow her mum off, she’s never gotten any recognition or praise (her father left her mum when she got pregnant, and then a concession of stepfathers!) Her mother looks at her as a means of income! 

Drew is a doctor, lived his whole life in Watson. The town is named after his family, and they are treated a little like royalty, but not for Drew, he wants to help people and avoid his stepmother! Taking on his fathers practise has been an ambition forever, and now it’s finally his, if only they were to be left in peace! 
They first meet under less than great circumstances! They bump into one another, but Drew is very abrupt and stomps off in a mood! Amelia thinks he’s hot, but really rude, neither realising they are going to be working together….. 
Their second meeting is also unusual, Drew rescues Amelia after she falls taking her dog for a walk, there is attraction between the pair, but both are wary….. 
But they arrange to go to dinner, and both are eager for a different kind of dessert!! 
Two weeks later she’s about to start her job, and who’s her new employer? Yup, you guessed it, her Savior and one night stand!! Talk about embarrassing…. 
But she takes the job and they settle in and start their new relationship as employer/employee…. 
But as Drew was upset bad annoyed with Amelia just leaving his bed without a word his very short with her! 
The job is going to be so hard working together, but they are professionals, they can be civil, can’t they? 
This is a sort of a one night stand story, that becomes an enemy to lovers kind of book. 
I did like the premise of this book, usually a one night stand turns into something else, but not this one. They keep each other at arms length after amazing sex.
But when his stepmother tries to set Drew up with a woman, he turns to Amelia and asks her to be his fake date!! 
I loved some of the other characters, Kate the nurse and Daniel (Drew’s hound dog of a brother) and her best friend Zach (he just made me chuckle) 
So can Drew and Amelia pretend to have feelings for one another? When it’s clear to see that they are perfect for each other…… 
And when things start to get a little real with the couple, someone tries to put a spoke in their relationship! Can they get past all the misunderstandings and backstabbing that are trying to keep them apart? 
Nicely written and well articulated. 
This might be the authors first book, but I look forward to reading more. 
And i hope we get to come back to the town of Watson.

New Book out Today

Annihilation Road (Torpedo Ink) book 6 by Christine Feehan

All paths lead to destruction in the new Torpedo Ink novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

Savin “Savage” Pajari is convinced he’s not worth a damn thing. He’s not like his brothers. He’s a sadistic monster, a killer–a man no woman could truly love. So it completely throws him when a stranger risks her life for his, pushing him out of the way and taking the hit that would have sent him six feet under. If he had any kind of sense, he’d leave her alone, but Savage can’t get the woman with a smart mouth and no sense of self-preservation out of his head. With one kiss, he’s lost. 

Seychelle Dubois has spent her entire life not feeling much of anything, until Savage comes along and sets her whole body on fire. Kissing him was a mistake. Letting him get close would be a catastrophe. He’s the most beautiful–and damaged–man she’s ever met. He has a way of getting under her skin, and what he’s offering is too tempting to resist. 

Seychelle knows so little about Savage or the dangerous world of Torpedo Ink, but his darkness draws her like a moth to a flame. Loving him could mean losing herself completely to his needs–needs she doesn’t understand but is eager to learn. But what Savage teaches her could destroy her.

Hunter’s Hope (Vampire Motorcycle Club Book 2) by Alyssa Day Publication Date 30/11/2021

My Review 

Second book in this new series. Not read the first book, but I’m definitely going back to read it. I’ve not read this author in a while (I loved her Atlantis Series)

This series concentrates on a motorbike gang, but not an ordinary MC gang, this one has vampires riding the bikes. It did remind me a little of Patricia A. Rasey’s Sons of Sangue Series. 

Hunter is considered a “young” vampire as he’d only recently been turned. He’s fighting his revulsion at the the decision to take his old life away and replace it with a new one! And it’s one he’s not sure he can get a grip of! His new diet is causing him anxiety and stress, he thinks he’s going to kill someone’s with his newfound strength and hunger! But all that changes when he meets Alice….

Alice can see ghosts! She’s been able to see them for a long time, hiding the fact from everyone she knows. But when her past comes back to “haunt” her, she’s unsure where to go, can she really trust this stranger who holds a dark attraction for her? And how will she cope when she finds out there is more than just ghosts in her world… Vampires, demons and werewolves for a start! 

I really liked the premise of this story, it’s a little slow and not much interaction with the MC part. But it has great dialogue, parts had me chuckling. It also shows us how newly turned vampires deal with their new life. And the ghost element was a great addition (usually the female is just some ordinary human who stumbles into the supernatural world. I also liked how the couple work together figuring out who and what wants Alice. Maybe I’ve read too many MC books lately, maybe I’ve read too many dark romances to fully appreciate this one, I found it a little tame, there could have been more battles, it could have been a little darker. But it’s still a great read, and I’ve added this series on my TBR list. 

I’d recommend it for those who like their vampires a little less dark and who fight their basic urges 😉

ARC Review

The last families by Carla Doria

Description 

Escaping their land’s destruction, the Kaptarish, Drontas, Verbaren, and Ninfires have reached the island of Gambir. The last families with talents like mind-reading, extraordinary force, burning with their hands, and flying, hope to find refuge in this place.

Yarisha, the only mind-reader in the Verbaren family, will fall in love with Malakay, the most arrogant sibling in the Ninfire family. She knows the young man’s mother and the matriarch of the Ninfires, Mandely, will never consent to this relationship since she considers the Verbaren family inferior to them.

None of the members in the families expect to find a land full of secrets where those with the darkest looking-skin have better chances to survive and where the leader, Ian, is planning to take wives by force.

Publication Date 8/11/2021

My Review

A Fantasy/Dystopian style of book which was really good. A new author for me, and one I’ll be keeping an eye on. A fast paced book in which supernatural families fight to survive.

These families all have different abilities, and all think they are superior to one another.

We start with families fleeing their homes to a new island. It’s a scary time for everyone, characters are vying for leadership, some embrace it, whilst others don’t really want it.
It did remind me a little of swallows and Amazons, but with the characters being a little older it’s also a little like Robinson Crusoe. The squabbling within the families as they set up hierarchy was interesting. Each family is different and that was handy as you don’t want to get them mixed up.

Yarisha and Malakay are the main characters that are in this book. Both from opposing families, both aren’t really suppose to be together, Yarisha is a strong personality and a girl that knows her mind, a leader in her family (but she’s unsure of her role) she knows that she has to get the approval of Malakay’s mother (which is going to be near impossible) Malakay is a complex character who grows within this book.

Uniting families seem like the best plan, the more there are of you, the better your chances of survival. But if you despise everyone around you, how will that be possible?

Multiple points of view can sometimes confuse the reader (I know it does me😜) but I never got that with this book, you know who is who with every word written. A complex world and it’s cast soon emerges, and your quickly drawn in.

We then also have the faction that wants to lead EVERYONE. He’s not a nice guy a d it soon emerges that he wants a harem to rebuild his family, but he’s looking at the other families to complete his harem! So that means there will be fighting as the families don’t really wave to give up women to his group!

We also have eyes that are watching the proceedings! Are these friends or foes?
I loved reading this book and hope there will be another as there are so many other characters and stories that could be told.

ARC REVIEW

Below Torrential Hill: An Electric Eclectic Novella by Jonathan Koven

A WINNER OF THE 2020 ELECTRIC ECLECTIC NOVELLA PRIZE

A FINALIST OF THE 2020 CLAY REYNOLDS NOVELLA PRIZE

“Remarkable in its empathy, successfully conveying the difficult realities of death, first love, single parenting, alcoholism . . . Both an ode to loss and to growth, a dialectic that produces a singular tone and a dynamic plot. Within these pages, Koven has constructed an entire universe, and we are left homesick by story’s end.”—Shannon Greenstein, author of Pray for Us Sinners

“Captivating, awash in poetry and sensual detail . . . beautiful, sad, and full of hope.”—Charlotte Dune, author of Mushroom Honeymoon

“To say that Koven’s writing is evocative and exquisite is an understatement. Below Torrential Hill is a psychologically intricate story to savor.”—John DeDakis, author of the award-winning Lark Chadwick Mystery series


Jonathan Koven, author of the beloved poetry collection Palm Lines, returns with a stunning fiction debut. Breathtaking in scope, intimate in its detail, Below Torrential Hill is a coming-of-age about family, memory, and reconciliation.

Description……

It’s Christmas, and strange occurrences are plaguing the small town of Torrential Hill: a supernatural comet, undead insects, exploding streetlights, and a presence luring people into the woods. But when the mother of Tristen—a wistful, fatherless sixteen-year-old boy—hears voices from the kitchen sink, all he can think of is running away.

Below Torrential Hill: An Electric Eclectic Novella by Jonathan Koven Publication Date 3/12/2021

My Review

This is a Christmas story with a difference. The supernatural angle was really good, and the suspense had me turning the pages to find the answers.

The death of a loved one can effect people in different ways. And this story shows how these characters try to deal with some of these issues that death brings.

Tristan knows that the death of her husband (his dad) and the subsequent leaving of his stepfather has left her feeling lost and so turned to drink. So when she claims to hear voices, he thinks it’s the drink. The bond i feel between mother and son is extremely tenuous and it could snap at any moment.

Tristan is an interesting character, for such a young man he’s got a pretty good grasp of things, he looks after his mother. But he’s also a bit of a loner, not connecting with the kids in the area he lives.

Supporting characters only add to this story. His ex-girlfriend now his friend Ava is great, (she a no nonsense character, and says it how it is) he hopes they will get back together again. His mother Lucy doesn’t really know what she wants out of life, and you have to feel sorry for her, but lashing out at Tristan lost her a little of my respect.

Tristan thinks the drink is the issue with his mother, but when he hears the voices his first thought is disbelief…..

Flowed really well, and although only a short story, it was really good. The supernatural aspect was interesting, the spooky moments if they were in a film would have you hiding behind a cushion, and the suspense keeps you turning the pages. Liked the legend or story that tells of voices that could entice people to enter the wood and never be seen again, their voices would be added to the growing stream.

I’d recommend this book if you like something a little different.

A really good read.

A Continuing Story:
Grump Special Ops Bear is told in three installments, or episodes, like a TV show. Each episode, except for this finale, includes a cliffhanger!

Grumpy Special Ops Bear: Episode 3 (Bear Elite Shifters) by Sedona Venez

My Review


The final instalment in this three book story.Trinity and Fergus are now finally together, it’s taken a while for then to finally connect, Trinity trying to evade the rogue wolf pack, and Fergus to aid her escape.
Trinity finds out some things that alter her perspective on her life in general. She’s also still coming to terms with the supernatural beings and the fact that some of them want to kill her!


Trinity is just great, although she’s had so much thrown at her, she’s trying to remain positive. She’s also been instrumental in getting herself out of tricky situations. With a sharp mind and sometimes a caustic wit, it’s kept her sane. Fergus is still doing my head in! He knows Trinity is his mate, he won’t claim her, he won’t even acknowledge the fact she’s his! And that frustrated me at times, but it also kept it fresh, too many PNR (Paranormal Romances) just have the couple falling madly in love end of story!


So….. Trinity is still being chased by the wolf pack, Fergus and his team are trying to figure out why and how to eradicate the threat to her. It’s still a fast paced read, it’s still filled full of twists and turns. But it all become clear in this book too. Threads are tied up, explanations are given.


But will Fergus ever claim his mate? And will Trinity want to live in this violent world?


You definitely need to read in order, as it’s the same characters that are in the same books.


I have to admit, I loved the premise of the book. I really liked all the characters, I just wasn’t sure about the delivery (three books) it did keep up the suspense, but I felt it could have been done in one book (just my opinion)

I’m hoping the books will come out as a Boxset, because I’m definitely interested in reading them all together.

ARC REVIEW- NEW RELEASE

Reverie and Redemption by Kaydence Snow

Release Date: Thursday, December 9th

About the book:

𝐼’𝑚 𝑖𝑛 𝑙𝑜𝑣𝑒 𝑤𝑖𝑡ℎ 𝑡ℎ𝑟𝑒𝑒 𝑚𝑒𝑛. 𝐼’𝑚 𝑗𝑢𝑠𝑡 𝑛𝑜𝑡 𝑠𝑢𝑟𝑒 𝑖𝑓 𝑡ℎ𝑒𝑦’𝑟𝑒 𝑎 𝑑𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑚 𝑐𝑜𝑚𝑒 𝑡𝑟𝑢𝑒 𝑜𝑟 𝑚𝑦 𝑤𝑜𝑟𝑠𝑡 𝑛𝑖𝑔ℎ𝑡𝑚𝑎𝑟𝑒.

It began with hearing voices – just another step on my steady descent into madness. It was inevitable, considering the whole town hated me and I was the loneliest person on the planet.

I didn’t really blame them, I guess. Everyone who got close to me ended up in the hospital. I’d be suspicious of me too.

When the three distinct, alluring voices in my head started to appear before my eyes as three distinct, gorgeous men I really started to question everything I thought I knew.

They called themselves Dreamwalkers and told me they were hunting the monster attacking all the people around me.

They won’t leave me alone.

I’m not sure I want them to.

But am I the monster they’re after? Or are we all in worse danger than I ever could’ve imagined?

My Review

If you like your romance with a little suspense thrown, then you’ll love this one.
Reviere is a small town girl living a solitary life. Not by choice, but by circumstances. Everyone she’s loved has fallen into a coma! So the town stay away from her. She does try to keep a positive attitude, but it’s hard. And when she begins to hear voices, poor Reviere is convinced she’s going mad!
There is also a little supernatural going on in this book, so it’s hard to categorise what genre it should go in.
It’s also a reverse harem (one woman with one than one man)
Anyway back to our social outcast. She’s hearing voices and thinks she’s going mad! But when those voices become bodies (hot bodies I may add 😜) then she thinks she’s lost the plot! But these are no ordinary bodies, they belong to DreamWalkers. So can she trust these men, as so many others have feared her or only wanted something from her?
I did like the connection that Hollis, Oskar and Sinan has with each other. Each brought something different to the story. And together you felt they were an unstoppable team. But the star of this story was Reviere, always looking for a positive and her humour at herself had me chuckling.
This is a new author for me, and one I’ll be adding to my reading list. Her words brought the story to life in my mind, and I could have happily read for longer. A few twists and turns in the book kept me glued to my kindle until it was done. And the suspense, well that comes in the form of a shadowy stranger! Is he a friend or foe?

The Darkest Destiny (A lords of the Underworld series) Novella by Gena Showalter

Description

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Gena Showalter comes a new story in her Lords of the Underworld series…

Forsaken. Deathless. A monster in every way. Mostly, Brochan is determined. He craves what fate promised him—the woman who will help him conquer a heavenly kingdom. He will stop at nothing to win her.

Viola, Keeper of the demon of Narcissism, lives for a single purpose—treating herself and her pet to the best life possible. But a crazed warrior is now appearing everywhere she ventures, ruining her fun…. tempting her beyond reason and keeping her at a razor-edge of desire.

Though legions of males have attempted to win her, all have failed. Somehow, this rampaging beast is tearing down her walls, one by one, claiming he owns her heart and her very destiny. To be with him, however, she must defeat the only force strong enough to destroy her—love. 

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

My Review

It’s been a while since I’ve read this author (I tend only to read her lords of the underworld series) so I was excited to find out she’s written another short story in this series. 
Viola has the demon Narcissism contained inside her body (many centuries ago a group of warriors were guarding Pandora’s box, they were foolish enough to open it, all the demons escaped! As punishment those guards were made to live with a demon inside of them, prisoners of the gods were also punished with the demons) 
So your wondering if Viola is a warrior or an enemy of the Gods?! (Read the book and you’ll find out 😉 She is also the keeper of the Afterlife (you’ll find out how in the book) 
Viola cares for nothing except herself, (well that the definition of narcissism) until her pet fluffy enters her life. (She thinks of her pet as a child) 
She lives only to entertain and amuse herself and care for fluffy, by taking immortal souls.
I wasn’t a big lover of this character when she was first introduced into the LOTU (lords of the underworld) but in this book my opinion changes. 
Brochan doesn’t house a demon inside himself. But he certainly comes with enough of his own issues! 
The more I read of him, the more I felt sorry for him (and to be honest, most of the characters in this series have a pretty horrible life) he was an angel until he fell (due to Viola! And now he made it his mission to find answers, then take her head! 
This pairing was just great. 
How they meet had me chuckling, which turned into amazement, which soon morphed into shock!
Although a short story, it packs a whole lot into it….
Betrayal, laughter, suspense and a few steamy moments. 
I understand the character a lot more after reading her background, she’s still not one of my favourite characters, but I like her a whole lot more now. 
Brochan was a great character he had so much potential and excelled beyond even his own expectations. 
It’s not necessary to read all the previous books in this series (15 books and a few novellas!) as this book will happily stand on its own.
