Liz’s Review~The Bad Guy~by Celia Aaron

kiMK6qo4T

“The more she tried to fly away, the harder I wanted to clip her wings.”

description

The Bad Guy is a stand-alone dark romance/thriller with a complicated hero, a beautiful heroine, and a plot that does not stop. If you are looking for your next anti-hero to fall in love with, look no further. Sebastian Lindstrom is waiting.
description

“I was falling prey to the lure.”

Camille Briarlane is a biology teacher living a mediocre life. Although she has a great best friend and a doting boyfriend, she knows that something is missing from her life. When her boyfriend takes her to a work function, she meets his boss Sebastian. A small spark ignites, and deep down in her soul, she feels a stirring that she has been craving for a long time. As her boyfriend begins to press for a bigger commitment from Camille, she knows she isn’t ready. A work-study program over the Christmas holiday seems like a perfect escape. If she can immerse herself in science and the study of plants surely she can forget about her boyfriend and the mystery of Sebastian.

description

“You stole everything from me.”

Sebastian Lindstrom has it all. He is sexy, powerful, rich, and never had a problem getting what he wants. After meeting Camille, he knows that she is exactly what he wants. She is what he needs. But what happens when Camille isn’t ready to be caught?

description

“I want to see things through your eyes.”

Told in dual POV, The Bad Guy is exactly the type of read that I LOVE to DEVOUR! Sebastian is my favorite type of hero. He is dark and delicious and driven to do anything in his power to protect Camille. The connection between the two is intense as the pendulum swings between extreme hate and extreme passion. Camille is a strong heroine, and her growth as a character was evident as she tried to identify the force pulling her to Sebastian. The secondary characters enhanced the plot significantly with their vital connections to the main characters. I especially enjoyed the relationship between Sebastian and his father. Who wouldn’t want a father that loves you unconditionally? Although not everyone will appreciate the idiosyncrasies that exist in Sebastian, I found his character to be unique and one that I will never forget. If you are looking for a dark romance with smoking hot passion and intrigue, look no further!

description
Overall, I highly recommend The Bad Guy to anyone who likes to take a trip on the dark side. Sebastian and Camille will not disappoint. Celia Aaron has long been one of my go-to authors. Her gifted storytelling never ceases to amaze me. The Bad Guy is another blockbuster hit from Ms. Aaron and I guarantee Sebastian is sure to please.

Blurb

Sage Mayson had Kimberly Cullen once, and the memory of that brief encounter has tortured him since the moment he pushed her away. He should have followed his gut, but he didn’t, and now he’s left watching the woman he wants more than anything from afar.

Kimberly vowed to protect her heart from Sage, but when her sister is murdered and her world starts to fall apart, he’s the one person she finds herself leaning on.

Getting a second chance is something Sage knows is rare. He’s not going to squander the one he’s been given, and he won’t take no for an answer when it comes to making Kim his.

But what Sage doesn’t know is Kim has a secret that could leave them both devastated and heartbroken.

EXCERPT

“He apologized. Don’t you think you should do the polite thing and at least hear him out?”
“I don’t know.”
“You don’t know, or you’re just too scared to find out what will happen if you do?”
“Do we have to do this right now?” I sigh, and he tosses his arm around my shoulders and pulls me into his side.
“We’ve been doing this for months now. I’ve seen the way you look at him when you think no one will notice, and I see the way he looks at you, not giving a fuck if everyone sees. Even when he thought you and I were a thing, he still made it perfectly clear to those who were watching that if by some chance he got a shot, you would be his.”
“I really think you are reading way too much into this.”
“Am I?”

BADD TO THE BONE - ABOUT BOOK
BaddBone Amazon 
Brock Badd is everything except bad. He’s sexy, sweet, strong, and every other good thing I never thought I wanted in a man. I always thought I needed the real bad boys, the ones that screw you senseless and pull your hair and aren’t there to talk about it in the morning.
 I’ve always been a one-night stand kind of girl, and sometimes I wouldn’t even stick around for a full night. Brock was supposed to be a one-night stand—that’s how it started out, at least. Only, what was supposed to be a fun one-time-only hookup with a hot local guy ended up with me discovering Brock’s potency six different ways by breakfast.

 

That was all it took. One night with Brock, and I was hooked. 
But hooked doesn’t mean ready for a relationship. 

That’s what he wants. And deep down, I’m starting to fear that’s what I want too.
 I’m just not sure I’m ready for it. 

I mean, he’s the literal epitome of tall, dark, and handsome, plus he’s a pilot…with a six-pack and perfect hair and a smile to melt me from the inside out. How’s a girl supposed to resist that? I couldn’t. I can’t. I’ve tried, but I keep going back for more.
 
I’ve got it bad, real BADD.

Liz’s Review~Until Sage (Until Him, #2)~ by Aurora Rose Reynolds

“I’m thankful every fucking day for the second chance I was given.”

description

The BOOM is back, and Aurora Rose Reynolds does it again with Until Sage. Sage and Kim were brought together and then ripped apart. But what happens when they get a second chance?

description

“In the twenty-four hours we spent together, you gave me a taste of something beautiful, and the memories of those moments have haunted me since I walked away from you.”

Kim and Sage met and had an instant connection. When a horrible misunderstanding rips them apart, Kim is devastated, and Sage is angry. When Sage realizes that he was wrong and that Kim is indeed the woman for him, he sets his sights on getting her back.

description

“We’re not friends, if you haven’t figured that out by now, I’ve still got work to do. Baby, you are mine.”

Kim is confused. She feels a strong connection to Sage and yet, her life is complicated. Knowing that he burned her before only keeps her more guarded against his advances. Anyone who has met a Mayson Man knows that when he meets his match the boom happens and he will move heaven and earth to get her and keep her forever. Sage and Kim are perfectly matched and although they face several obstacles they can overcome together.

description

“I waited too fucking long for my shot, and I’m not going to let her run off and build up walls. Not this time. I’m done fucking around.”

Told in dual POV, Until Sage is another Reynolds blend of goodness. Although there were certain elements of the plot that I would have loved to have been further developed, there was enough passion and love to keep me entertained throughout the entire read. Sage was quite complex, and he was more than driven to win back Kim. This second chance romance with the Mayson twist will melt your heart and leave a smile on your face the entire read.

description

Aurora Rose Reynolds always delivers a beautiful romance story, and there is nothing better than experiencing the BOOM! Until Sage is another amazing display of greatness and I could not get enough! Each Until book can be read as a stand alone but why not read them all and enjoy each and every moment of Mayson greatness? You will be so glad that you did! Bravo Ms. Reynolds! Bravo!

CC’S Review ~ Guns n’ Boys: He is Poison by K.A. Merikan

Title: Guns n’ Boys
Author: K.A. Merikan
Genre: Dark M/M Romance
Rating: 4.5 Stars!

84425-goodreads-button

 
description

As the Don’s youngest son, Seth Villani was surrounded by a world of violence and power, however, his mother tried to give Seth a different life by encouraging him to attend university abroad. After spending five years in the United States, it’s become clear Seth can no longer live unprotected. Upon returning to Sicily, Seth’s father announces his decision to make Seth his successor despite being the younger son. Immediately, Seth is to be trained in all ways necessary to advance as the head of the family and his bodyguard trainer is none other than his childhood enemy.

“If I were in your place, I’d make staying alive my number one ambition. And now, that’s on me.”


Domenico “Dom” Acerbi is an assassin and from a young age sworn by oath into the Villani family. Having grown up around the Villani brothers, Domenico knows their strenghths and weaknesses, and while he is a worthy ally, Dom has always known his place in the hierarchy. As most in the family are shocked by the Don’s decision to place Seth at the helm, Domenico is also surprised to be tasked with training such a softie like Seth. Knowing what’s at stake, Dom proceeds despite his undeniable attraction to a beefy man like Seth.

“You’ve never had a proper man show you the ropes. We have to work on that.”


Sent to Berlin for training and to uncover needed information vital to the family, Seth is forced to shadow Domenico at every moment for his own protection. During this time, Seth sees up close and personal just how strong, smart and agile Dom can be and fighting his own long time attraction to this long-haired beauty becomes difficult. For Domenico, he seizes the opportunity to dominate Seth and what ensues is nothing less than hot.

“And what would be the fun in just shoving it in? Domenico slowly leaned over Seth, his cock aligning with the crack of Seth’s ass. He shivered at the contact.”


As Seth and Dom spend more time together, their opposing traits actually bring them closer and effectively balancing each other. With Seth’s life constantly changing to accommodate his new role, options are becoming slim and he doesn’t want to sacrifice his heart or compromise others. As Seth relies on Domenico, they must continue to keep their feelings secret from the family and prepare for the future.

“I will take a bullet for you if necessary, but you fucking get up and ask God to protect the both of us.”


Having read a couple other books by this author duo, the story telling qualities I’ve come to enjoy are prevalent in this story with strong character development, dark humor and the ability to write realistic combustible sexual tension. With the pairing of Seth and Domenico, there is an immediate love/hate dynamic that further fuel their attraction and I loved every morsel of their banter and flirtation. To say, I’m hooked on Seth and Domenico would be an understatement! As such, I will be continuing this series with book two as soon as possible!

For those who want to delve into the world of the Sicilian mafia and experience taboo kinky times with two loveable and fuckable characters, I highly recommend Guns & Boys!

Liz’s Review~Trophy Wife~ by Alessandra Torre

kiMK6qo4T

“He is a living, breathing man who has the capacity to love, who looks at me and sees something more than a contract.”

description

Trophy Wife is a smoking hot read with a business man, a stripper, and a contract. With a blend of intrigue, passion, and money, Nathan Dumont is one hero who is sure to please any romance reading fan!

description

“In the moments before his breathing deepens, his hold on me relaxing, it is perfection. Forbidden. Impossible. Perfection.”

Candy is a stripper. She has a college degree and yet has been forced to work the pole for money. From the beginning of the read it is easy to assess that Candy is a good girl. She has simply chosen a job in order to provide for herself and help her ailing dad. When Nathan Dumont visits Candy in the strip club, one blow job turns into a series of events that will change her life forever. What happens when a broke stripper gets the opportunity of a lifetime?

description

“He is unraveling, the world that he knows slowly coming apart at a time when it should be coming together.”

Nathan Dumont is looking for more than just a blowjob from Candy. He wants a wife. All she has to do is sign her name on the dotted line. She accepts a marriage of convenience, a marriage with hot sex, a beautiful wardrobe, and a beautiful house. However, it is a marriage without love and companionship. Nathan is cold and calculated. He has orchestrated a beautiful facade for him and Candy to live in. And yet, the sex between these two is beyond fulfilling. As the story begins to unravel, Nathan is shaken by the ghosts of his past and the possibility of his future.

description

“Ecstasy. My body breaks into a thousand splinters of pleasure, a series of gasps spilling out, my back arching and pushing against his hard pelvis, our bodies joined as I am torn apart in a sea of desire.”

Told in dual POV, Trophy Wife is a compilation of Alessandra Torre’s previous work The Dumont Diaries. This updated version includes Nathan’s POV and a fresh ending to fulfill all of the questions that were left unanswered in the previous work. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this read. I was a Nathan and Candy fan before but with the additional dialogue, additional moments of bliss, and the beautiful epilogue, I found myself overjoyed with this read. As the connection between Nathan and Candace transforms from physical to emotional and every piece of the plot is revealed I simply could not tear my eyes away.

description

Overall, Trophy Wife is a perfect blend of romance, passion, and intrigue that will certainly get your blood pumping and make your heart swoon. I loved The Dumont Diaries but this updated read literally blew me away. I have always been a fan of Ms. Torre’s work and Nathan and Candace are positively one of her hottest couples to date!
