Moti ebook edit.jpg

Meet Moti Ferreira—spectacularly jinxed from the day she’s born.

Saddled with an eccentric mother, she stumbles upon the one man who holds the key to her freedom—the best man at her cousin’s upcoming wedding.

All Moti has to do is overcome her fear of water, board a yacht to the Greek Isles, seduce the dreamy Nikos Manolas, and survive two weeks at sea with her oddball family.

The only obstacle Moti doesn’t see coming is Alexandros Veronis, the onboard chef and star witness to her awkward mishaps. He transforms onions into chocolate and aroma into nostalgia. Day by day, his alchemy works its magic on Moti. But she’s not the only one falling under his spell. Everyone has a secret, growing round and ripe at Chef Alex’s table. When the masks fall off, they spill out one by one, and everything blows up in their faces.

Now Moti’s truth is exposed, and worse, she’s hooked on more than Alex’s midnight snacks. But this time, screwing up could be the best thing she’s ever done…

CC’s Review ~ Vicious by V.E. Schwab

VICIOUS3.png

The paths of Victor Vale and Eli Cardale merged when they became college roommates. With both having keen intellect and intense ambition, they attempt to test certain theories as it pertains to the creation and confirmation of extraordinary abilities. With failures and successes, Victor and Eli discover more than they could have foreseen and their goals cause a deep rift between them.

“It was in those jagged pieces that Victor saw something he recognized. Something dangerous, and hungry.”


Narrated in a shifting timeline and alternating focus on each character’s perspective, the story coalesces at a quick pace and then it all explodes with incredible tension until the very last word. Simultaneously, character dimension deepens and with a theme pushing boundaries in science and morality, there is the constant question of who might be fighting on the “right” side. 

“Because you’re right. Even though we come back, something stays dead. Lost. We forget something of who we were. It’s scary and wonderful and monstrous.”


In starting this book, I wanted to feel such a strong dynamic between Victor and Eli and it certainly delivered. These two were perfectly poised as friends then foes. Even though my preference is for Victor, I enjoyed loathing Eli and trying to understand how his misconceptions caused such discord for him. However, I do wish there was a bit more regarding his past and how it affected his faith. That said, all the interactions between Victor and Eli were intense. The secondary characters were integral as well and I loved Sydney and Mitch.

Vicious is a science fiction fantasy offering an intriguing premise, opposing motives, and tight writing. I highly recommend to those who want to get lost in a great book!

CORRADO

by Bethany-Kris
Guzzi Duet Legacy, #1
Publication Date: July 8, 2019
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime. Erotic Romance

LIVE! LIVE! LIVE!

SYNOPSIS:

The son of a prominent Cosa Nostra Don, Corrado Guzzi’s life should have been all mapped out. He would be what every other Guzzi man was, too—made, mafia. It’s their way. But when given another choice, the chance to be something more, he takes it. Even if it comes with strings.

It’s there that he might find where he belongs, and Alessio Sorrento. The man who could change his whole life.

This love thing? It should have been easy, but they made it hard. Nothing about a relationship like theirs is simple. Dictated by rules, weighed down with things left unsaid, and already hanging by a frayed thread.

This is what love looks like before, and after.
Before she came along.
And after she was there.

It takes one woman to change everything.

Ginevra Calabrese wasn’t ready for this—for them.

So, what happens now?

*

NOTE: Corrado (book one) and Alessio (book two) are a duet within The Guzzi Legacy series, and should be read in order. All other titles in the series are standalone. This is NOT a love triangle.

CC’s ARC Review ~ Death by C.M. Radcliff

Curtis Matthews led a life of rejection, abuse and deep loneliness. With a few glimmers of light, Curtis managed to carry on until the tightrope snapped causing him to fall into complete darkness. Though his choices lead to irrevocable and tragic results, he accepts the consequences.

 

“Where we’re headed, the sun doesn’t shine, the skies are black, and death hangs heavily in the air.”


Divided between victim and monster, the storyline allows for a continual balance between the two characterizations. Much of the book, I empathized with the pain Curtis endured, yet at a certain turning point, there was a shift causing me to deliberate just how to reconcile the tragedy.

 

“I learned quickly to keep everyone at arm’s length, and no one could hurt me.”


Categorizing the genre of this book is a challenge, as it is not romance but rather a story that reads as a narration of dark fiction. Going into to this one cold is the best recommendation in order to experience the gravity of what occurs.

Death is a story about isolation, abuse and the ability to ultimately find peace.

CC’s Review ~ Pride (The Copper Horse, #2) by K.A. Merikan

Continuing in the timeline and set in 1907 London, Reuben/Copper is continuing to acclimate to his new home with his master, Erik Dal of Bluefinger. Originating from meager means, Reuben wasn’t properly schooled in books or etiquette, but he has an intense need to please and do a proper job. In this installment, Reuben experiences a transformation in how he views his role as a pony and companion to Erik. In his attempt to make strides, Reuben tries to earn his master’s affection and wants to be his one and only pony.

“You are my prized stallion and you can take me into the sky even without those wings.”


As pony and master, Copper and Erik are quite charming together at times. When Erik spoils Copper or treats him with dignity, Copper feels enormous pride. However, Copper still has some sticking points about his situation that earns him severe punishment. Yet, when they roleplay, the kink is intensely hot and oh so perfectly dirty! The breeding scene was off the charts and what a perfect birthday party.

“He was being taken so roughly, without his explicit consent, with spectators, yet glorious arousal spread all over his body. He was being taken. Taken.”


What I loved about this story is the forged connection between Reuben and Erik. Reuben truly has a heart of gold and is at the mercy of the enigmatic and mercurial Erik. I also like how Erik is unabashedly open about his kinky predilections. In addition to the pony play, a broader story arc affecting Bylondon is developing and I’m curious to see how it ends.

Pride is a kinky story about acceptance of oneself. This book would appeal to kink-seekers and those that enjoy elements of steampunk. I look forward to reading the final book in the series.

Liz’s Review~Corrado~by Bethany-Kris


Corrado
by Bethany-Kris

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

“Pick the person you want.”

description

Corrado is the first book in The Guzzi Legacy. With action, raw passion, and deadly romance, Bethany-Kris has created another dark and twisted mafia romance that will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire read! Corrado Guzzi has always known he was different from his Mafia family members. But growing up in a traditional Italian home doesn’t stop him from achieving greatness. While training to become a great assassin, Corrado meets the love of his life. Alessio Sorrento is a powerhouse of male strength and charisma. He and Corrado quickly form an unstoppable bond. However, when Corrado is sent on a job to care for the sweet and seductive Ginevra Calabrese everything is turned upside down and things will never be the same again.

description

“He was fucking breaking apart at the seams.”

Told in multiple POV, Corrado offers a complex plot with intense characters living in extreme circumstances. All three main characters are desperate to live “their” normal and yet, normalcy cannot exist in the world in which they live. As the passion ebbs and flows between Corrado and Alessio and (Corrado and Ginevra), the love triangles of all triangles is pushed to the test.

“He couldn’t trust himself around this woman.”

Overall, Corrado will appeal to readers who enjoy M-M, M-F, and Mafia action. The plot was so intense that it also serves a heavy dose of angst to readers who are sensitive to triangles. Bethany-Kris is a truly gifted storyteller and I am never disappointed when I meet her characters and dive deep in the trenches of the Mafia!

Blog Tour/ Review/ All Grown Up by Vi Keeland

ALL GROWN UP IS LIVE!

A Standalone Contemporary Romance

#1 New York Times Bestselling Author Vi Keeland

 

SYNOPSIS

When I first encountered Ford Donovan, I had no idea who he was…well, other than the obvious. Young, gorgeous, successful, smart. Did I mention young? If I did, it bears repeating. Ford Donovan was too young for me.

Let’s back up to how it all started. My best friend decided I needed to start dating again. So, without my knowledge, she set up a profile for me on a popular dating site—one that invited men ages twenty-one to twenty-seven to apply for a date. Those nicknamed Cunnilingus King were told they’d go straight to the top for consideration. The profile wasn’t supposed to go live. Another point that bears repeating—it wasn’t supposed to.

Nevertheless, that’s how I met Ford, and we started messaging. He made me laugh; yet I was adamant that because of his age, we could only be friends. But after weeks of wearing me down, I finally agreed to one date only—my first after twenty years of being with my high school sweetheart. I knew it couldn’t last, but I was curious about him.

Though, you know what they say…curiosity kills the cat.

My legs wobbled walking into the restaurant.

Ford was seated at the bar. When he turned around, he took my breath away.

His sexy smile nearly melted my panties.

But…he looked so familiar.

As I got closer I realized why.

He was the son of the neighbor at our family’s summer home.

The boy next door.

Only now…he was all man.

I hadn’t seen him in years.

I left the restaurant and planned to put the entire crazy thing behind me.

Which I did. Until summer came.

And guess who decided to use his family’s summer home this year?
