“She was the one.” It was her. It had always been her.”

Francesca (Frankie) O’Hara was living a good life, a new life away from her past. As a first grade teacher for a private school and a perfect boyfriend she thought her life couldn’t be better. But when her past comes crashing back to her life she finds herself second guessing herself.

Mackenzie (Mack) Morrison was the hot talk of the school Frankie worked at. All the teachers and parents were all over his good looks. As a single father he was every woman’s eye candy. His life had turned sour when he let the love of his life go; he wished for a second chance at life to able to fight for her and win her back. When life gave him that one second chance he was bound to fight hard to claim back what it had always been his.

“I just wanted to steal you away. I don’t know where the fuck I’m going, Frankie. Don’t know what the fuck I’m doing either. I just needed to see you.”

Mack and Frankie were roommates in college and what started as an awkward encounter became so much more. They spent a lot of time together making friendship and memories and over time they developed deep feelings for each other. Timing was not in their hands because neither of them were ready to fight for what they believed in. Deep down they both knew they would never feel the same for anyone else but they couldn’t stay and fight back then because they were young and immature both full of insecurities of their own.

They were both different; Mack was always confident while Frankie was insecure and didn’t want to be around people however together they completed each other. I truly enjoyed this story. The author brings a super funny read with a combination of angst and emotions. All the characters on this book were awesome except for couple that I prefer not to mention haha. The book grabs your attention from the very beginning; I had butterflies the entire time making me feel jetty inside. Mack really stole my heart. I do however feel like the ending could have been extended a little bit more I wish the problems would have been resolved differently maybe. Readers looking for a book that will make you laugh while feeling the angst and a good ending will truly enjoy this book.

“Mack was the only one for me. There was no way this feeling could ever be replicated…because it had been years in the making.”

“You’re bigger than your fears.”

Andi Harper was drowning; stuck in a relationship she did not want to be in. She never thought she was going to be in such a horrible situation where she felt trapped and couldn’t leave. The man she had felt in love with was abusive and made her think he loved her but little by little she wasn’t able to escape his nightmare.

Clay was running from a past; he was cheated and his entire life was ruined. He felt like drowning and couldn’t do anything about it until he meets Andi. One faithful day their path crossed together and they both found hope in each other.

“He hurt you, but he hasn’t destroyed you, Andi. Your wounds will heal—now let your spirit bleed.”


description

Clay understood Andi from the beginning without her telling anything; in a way they were both running away and trying to be understood. There was something they were both missing when they first saw each other that kept drawing each other closer. All the events on this book had me on a total nervous wreck the entire time. I wanted Clay to get out of the trouble he was in; for Andi to finally be free and not afraid. I completely enjoyed this ride full of emotions and second chances. The true friendship between Andi and her best friend Camille was so awesome.

“The windows to his soul cut like a knife yet soothe the deepest of wounds.”


description

This had a bit of action, definably emotions and most importantly friendship and love. I enjoyed how this book was all put together at the end. For readers looking for a good second chance romance this book is perfect for you.

“Swim for me, Andi. Run for me. Continue to be my fighter.”

“How fucked up were we all? My family was fucking insane, every single one of us.”


Milly Evans; finally found a job she loved and a person who cared for her. Her past comes crashing back and it destroyed all of the happiness she had accomplished.

“The darkness reflected back at me seized my breath, the blaze in his stare evaporating the oxygen and causing me to suck in a gasp.”

Rik Bane best friend disappeared when they were twelve or so. Now he is older, wiser, and smarter he would not give up on looking for her until he finds her.

“I searched the fucking earth for you. You were my best friend, and you just upped and fucking left.”

When Rik and Milly meet the intensity of their relationship was static. I loved the mysterious ways of Rik and his security aroma. Everything about him speaks power. Milly couldn’t stand that they have grown up to be so different but so much alike as well.

description

This book was nothing what I expected and yet I enjoyed it because I liked the dark elements in the book and really liked Rik and Milly. The protectiveness of Rik and the badass attitude of Milly drew me into this story. There was so much craziness on this book though I felt like I couldn’t keep up. I did found myself really confused at times. I couldn’t seem to understand some side characters or why they were even in the book haha. At the end I thought perhaps I missed some of the answers and found myself with more questions. I hope that the next book will provide more answers to my questions and that the madness will continue.

Readers who enjoy dark suspense books and are not afraid to venture on this genre will really enjoy this book.

Noelle (Elle) Charlston; since twelve years old learned she had to take responsibility in her father’s business. The only thing she had was her father and the family business; she didn’t know anything else. She grew up with money and security and no friends. For once she wanted to know what freedom felt like. Young and desperate she ran away for the day on her nineteenth birthday. She found danger in the streets of New York City but also she found her soulmate as any young girl with dream may think.

“I shouldn’t be daydreaming about a man who tasted like candy or a kiss beneath the stars on a baseball field.”

Penn Everett; dark, handsome, and mysteries show up in Elle’s life three years after Elle’s one crazy night. He had some secrets and that’s what made him so tempting but dangerous at the same time. He was a mystery and Elle was intrigued. Somehow; she was attracted to him but she kept denying it. The struggle between what she wanted and what this man made her feel was real. Penn knew she was stubborn and he wouldn’t give up until he got what he wanted from her.

“I can make you do things, Elle. Things you want to do. Things I want to do. I particular liked when you said you’d get on your knees and call me, what was it? Oh, master?”

This story grabbed my attention from the beginning. I found myself daydreaming of Elle’s one night fantasy as well as this hotness of a man that was Penn. I could understand Elle’s internal struggle to give into her desired and I really enjoyed the sweet torture and the fight between these two. The chemistry was incredible and super-hot. Their encounters were hilarious one minute they are fighting like animals the next they are heated up with desire.

Pepper takes you to a stunning story of forbidden love with a dark mysterious feels of lies and deceptions. I honestly can hardly wait to see how this duet will end and what more twists the author has in store for us.

“All we really want is to feel that we matter-that we’re seen, that we’re heard.”


description

Rodel (Ro) Emerson; received the worse call of her life and in that call she truly thought her like ended but it was only the beginning. She took the flight to Tanzania and there in Africa she meets unforgettable people that crosses her life and she would never be the same again. At only twenty four years old Ro was scared of changes; growing up traveling with her parents all she dreamed about what to settle down. Her sister was complete opposite; she craved the adventure and making new memories.

Jack Warden; had his life in Africa. All he has ever known is the farm and his legacy. After a tragedy so deep he didn’t care anymore until he meets Ro. She somehow helped him healed and sees the world in a different way. Everything he thought he never would do; soon thought It could be possible.

description

Two people from different worlds; connected by the tragedy; a different kind of pain for each but same kind of loss. They never in a million years thought that destiny would put them together but their loss brought them together. Once they found that connection they both never had before it was so hard to turn away from it. The chemistry was electric, it was freaking EPIC. Their journey was absolutely incredible. Lots of action, lots of feels, lots of funny moments, this book has it all.

“I caught a glimpse of his soul. So many pieces of him had been fed to the lions. And as dark and bitter as it had turned him, he was a gladiator for standing where I would have surely fallen.”

This book was a complete and utterly incredible ride. It is a journey you do not want to miss. Everything I look for in a book for was here. The emotional feels, laughter I mean I seriously laughed so damn hard, butterflies they were making me all fuzzy inside, smoking, hot sexy scenes. There was nothing I hated about this book at all. I absolutely fell in love with the hero and the heroine they were both badass and stubborn and incredible amazing together. The side characters had me dying laughing so hard too they were just hilarious. This story was so unique packed with action and so much feels with just perfection. Don’t get me started on the EPILOGUE HOLY shit, that Epilogue was WOW like anything I’ve ever read before, it left me breathless and at the same time complete. My heart hurts but is in a good way the story was just so powerful and it made it my first full five stars book of 2017.

“I knew that whenever I thought of love, it would have a face, a name, a voice. And I would hear its heart beating from inside a tent in the wilds of Africa.”

Trey Marks; owner of Marks’s Lingerie was struggling and was in desperate need of help to bust his business and get it back to where it was before. 
Kate Martin was good at her job and she wanted this job more than anything.  She got hired at Marks’ Lingerie as Creative Director.  However; she was didn’t know that she would fall so hard for her boss.  He was the ultimate temptation and she did everything to keep it as friendship as possible.

Trey fought with himself to stay away from Kate and so did she.  However; after a year of working together and trying hard to avoid what they were feeling Trey finally realized he wasn’t going to love anyone as much as he does Kate.  Kate however was stubborn and she really irritated me; I wanted to love her but I found myself being upset at her for being so selfish and self-centered.  She did help him with his company and she did keep everything as friendship but she didn’t think twice to judge him without carrying about his feelings.

“When a kiss waits for a thousand days, it erupts like a cyclone-a slow unfurling of lips, of tongues, hands ripping, clothes flying, hot swirls of breath met with a clash of frantic desire.”

 

“I’ve never experienced chemistry like this, each taste of her tongue, each shift of her body, the yank of her hand in my hair-each one fans the flame.”

I did enjoy this story but not as much as I really wanted too.  I wanted to feel more connected with the heroine but I found myself unable to do so.  Overall, I did enjoy it when they finally gave into all the tension and chemistry that was going on between them for way too long.  I guess time does play a big role on this story.  It took them a long time to figure out each other and what they really wanted to succeed at their happy relationship.

“I will not be afraid”

Celaena Sardothien is a young female assassins who is a total badass. I loved her since the short novellas and really fell for her character. It has been a year since she was betrayed and lost a very special person. One year of being held captive thinking she was done for but she never stopped trying to escape.

Prince Dorian Havilliard is also young, handsome and he has come to Celaena to set her free. However; her freedom is not free she’ll have to earn it. They developed a great relationship and the way they both reacted towards each other was so enjoyable.

 

“It made her uneasy how he’d made her blush. In fact, he was so attractive that she had difficulty not thinking about how attractive he was.”

 

We also meet Chaol Westfall he is responsible to train and make sure Celaena is watched for. He doesn’t do feelings well and he has a hard-ass attitude but behind all he finds himself caring for this young assassin.

This book is packed with action, suspense and there’s a bit of a love romance as well that I cannot wait to keep reading about. I laughed and grin so much, because Celaena has this great attitude well more like a she don’t care who you are attitude and she flirts and mess around with the prince and she even makes Chaol uncomfortable which is hilarious.

 

“Didn’t I give you three pounds of candy?” She smiled impishly. “You ate half the bag!” “Was I supposed to save it?” “I would have liked some!” “You never told me that.” “Because I didn’t expect you to consume all of it before breakfast!”

 

I also loved that her need for good and justice was stronger that she would do whatever it takes to continue the role she has been given to protect the good people. A new journey and adventure is awaiting and I’m so excited that there are more books in the series.

 

“Freedom or death lay at this table. Her past and future were seated on a glass throne.”

“Hope: it clings on long after you want it to let go, daring you to wish for more.”


description

This books continues the journey of survival. Mikey is devastated, he has a boy and a crazy lady to care for. They almost get killed trying to find a safe place. He is going out of his mind trying his hardest to stay strong and keep them all alive.

description

He not only had to protect them from the dead but also from humans. No one can be trusted.

“We aren’t safe. And if these last few years have been anything to go by, we will never be safe again. Not just from the monsters but from the people that remain.”

Finally they get a break when they find a group who was able to take them in and keep them safe at least for a bit. Lots of things happened though. One moment they are safe the next is just unknown. All they know is that they will do anything to stay alive and avenge the evil man who truly are wicked and nuts in the head.

“To live. To survive. Those are our most basic instincts, and everything else is just irrelevant bullshit.”

This book was full of twists once you get closer to the end and it will have you on the edge of your seat until the end. I honesty couldn’t get enough and I felt like holy hell I need more. I cannot believe is over and I have to wait till next year for the next book.

“We’re all made from the same skin and bone, and we all want to survive.”

description

Readers who love the Walking Dead and are not afraid of blood, death, suspense, and a fast pace adventure should definitely read this series. Claire writes a unique story where you never know what to except. So get a hold of your wine, stay still and enjoy the ride because this series will have you screaming one minute, laughing the next and shocked as hell when you least expect it. And I love it obviously.

“There was no where to run. I had no idea where I was. No hope to escape.”

Tasmin Blythe aka Pimlico (Pim). Lived a life of luxury. Her mother raced her with wealth and to be someone of importance and class.  She trusted so much, she was innocent and naive.  That cost her everything.

Elder Prest a business man came across Pim at a business deal he was closing in.  Her silence called to me. However he didn’t know that she was going to change everything for him.

“There was power in listening, watching, observing.”

This book was very intense, I enjoyed the dark elements this book delivered. I was super afraid of how Pim would survive everything that she has already endured.  Life has been cruel to her and in her silence she found the only strength she had left.

Pin thought that maybe just maybe Elder would be her Savior, Her only escape to her captivity. But things never are what they seem. This book has some twists and I really loved how the author ended this book. Yes it has a bit of a cliffhanger but it was well worth it. I really enjoyed the beginning of this new series; it was dark, edgy, and sometimes very uncomfortable however; I enjoyed the silence chemistry between Pim and Elder.  I enjoyed the suspense but my favorite part was the last ten percent it was exactly how I would have want it to be. 

Lovers of Dark Suspense be prepared for a trip, this book will have you a bit uncomfortable so if you are not ready for some darkness you might want to stay back.  However; if you don’t mind getting into the mind of a damaged and abused person proceed at your own digression.  There is a cliffhanger but if you know Pepper’s writing you should expect that. 

“He was the devil dressed in angel wings, but he had a refined venom that other monsters lacked.”

“I’m a love-stuck deviant who’s finally found a purpose. ..who finally understands what it means to have something to live for.”

Sugar Malone; originally from a small town moved to the big city of New York to live her dreams of running her own restaurant and bakery.  Things were working out for Sugar; her business was getting great reviews and her dreams were endless.  She was sweet but also had a strong character which I liked.

Jake Wolfe; was sex on a stick.  He was protective, super hot and every girl’s fantasy. He worked hard to get where he was at by helping his bother run his business and moving up. Jake finds himself in a complicated situation where someone was framing him and he was in trouble with the law.  Jake’s brother was supportive and they had a really great relationship. His dark past hunted him though and his nightmares seemed to never go away.  He gave up on love a long time ago.

“Maybe this is the universe trying to tell me I don’t deserve beauty. I deserve hell. I deserve pain. I don’t know why I thought things might ever change for me.”

Jake and Sugar meet at her restaurant and it was an instant mutual feeling.  They both tried to fight it but it was inevitable.  Jake tried to reach out to Sugar later and he found himself protecting her from her creepy step-father.  After that he seem to take his feelings for her to the next level until he wins her heart.

This story was quick and sweet.  I liked it however; there was several things that I would have preferred and it left me a little bit uneasy.  I somehow felt a bit cheated; I guess I assumed there would be more sexiness and in fact there wasn’t.  I did however enjoyed it when it eventually happen and I will not complain about it.  Readers looking for a quick, sweet read will really enjoy this book.

“This big, scarred, beautiful man is mine. He’s the one I was waiting for all along. He’s the one I wished for and saved myself for. It’s him.”

Grace and Jack had the perfect marriage, at least in everyone’s eyes they were great together. A perfect housewife with a respectable attorney as a husband; what can possibly be so wrong with them?!.

The book starts with a dinner where Grace makes a perfect meal for her friends. Everyone is in awe of her cooking talent. Esther and Diane are eager to find out more about this couple, they try to set up lunch together but excuse after excuse they never seem to noticed anything happening behind this couple’s doors. Little do they know that nothing is what it seems.

t2-bcd-jpg-quote-1

Grace meets Jack a little over a year when she was in her thirties. She stopped carrying and looking for love because when it came to relationships over the care of her sister, she always chose her sister Millie which by the way I adored so much in this book. Grace was content with her choice, she had a good paid job that helped her paid for her sister private care for children with down syndrome and that was all that mattered to her.

Jake watched Grace at the park where Grace would take her sister to play, she was attracted to him right away. It was hard not too, he was in his forties and looked handsome and responsible. I gotta say he won both girls right away. Things happened so fast never would Grace has seen or predicted the events that got her to such a dark place.

t2-bcd-quote

This book was a total page turned, from the minute I started reading I found myself unable to stop until I got to the bottom of it. I was intrigued with this couple myself, I wanted answers, I wanted hope. I was desperate, I felt like I couldn’t breathe. Honestly, I was pretty upset in the beginning because I started to feel like I was suffocating; like I just couldn’t read fast enough to save these people. I know, I got very investment on the characters once I started; however I realized the last twenty percent was a bit predictable but I still wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. The ending was really good, at last I felt my breathing going back to normal and I found myself re reading the last couple of pages just to make sure there was no surprises.

Lovers of suspense would enjoy this new debut psychological thriller, it will definitely have you on the edge of your seat.

“She was mine. She would always be mine.”

Waleron aka powerful Taldeburu (leader) of the Scars always intrigued me since the beginning of the series.  He has this power that attracted me; his anger and secrets he hide just intrigued me from the beginning; I was dying for this book and man did I enjoyed the ride. Waleron; was born in a family of power and he had promised to protect his people.  All he ever knew was to protect until he met her; a young and gorgeous Scar that changed his world around.

teaser1

Delara Wyndam was a young Scar who meets Waleron and from the first day they meet she never thought could feel the way she did with this man. From day one his direct possessiveness over her overwhelmed her but it broke thru her heart and he stayed deeply inside her heart.  From that point no matter what happened she knew she was done for without him. She was trained as a warrior Scar by Waleron everything she knew she learned from him.  Their attraction towards each other was electric and magical.  However it was also their destruction.  

“Two people so woven together that we’d become one and the same. We existed without one another, but we’d never lived.”

This book goes back to when they first met and we finally get some answers as all those lost years; why these two suffered and why spent so much many years away from each other.  Waleron gets taken away and Delara almost lost herself without him.  Their bondage was just so strong she couldn’t live without him.  The same happened to Waleron once he broke free from where he was taken hostage for years but even when he returned he thought he couldn’t be with Delara so they both suffered so much, it was so painful to watch them in their struggle. 

 teaser4

“Was fate so cruel to have me love a man so deeply, only to lose him and never recover from the loss?”

 teaser2

 I did loved how Nashoda wrapped this book up, gave us a powerful story proving that no matter the loss time; true love always wins and you just have to go thru a lot of bumps to get there but eventually it will all be worth it.  I enjoyed all the side characters of course and I want more yes, I’m greedy I can’t wait to find out more about Abby and Damien.  Also, the secrets to the amazing Xamien who was Delara’s support for so many years.

“I have screwed up,”…”Royally”…”I Love her. It can’t end this way…”Mine“, I growl. “She’ll be mine.”

Prince Nicholas Pembrook of Wessco, has duties as a child of a royally family. His parents passed away and it was just him; his brother and his grandmother.  Nicholas knew what was expected of him but that didn’t mean he was ready to take the throne until it was time.  However; time was something his country aka queen grandma didn’t have and he was basically cornered and given an ultimatum. 

Olivia Hammond; is a waitress running her family’s business.  The loss of her mother destroyed her father leaving her alone to take care of the business.  She has a teenager sister but she couldn’t possibly ask her to drop her school duties to help her.  One snowy day prince charming shows up to her small bakery and her life was changed in a good and bad way.  

teaser1

Nicholas was pretty wasted when he first meets Olivia and their first encounter didn’t go very well for him.  Olivia was the kind of girl that doesn’t have time for guys and being a play toy.

She also had responsibilities that prevented her from taking care of her love life. The chemistry between these two was inevitable though and the more time they spend together the more they can’t stop it.  However; this was only supposed to be temporary.  At first Olivia was clueless of who Nicholas was and once she found out she still treated him the way she did from day one and he liked that about her.  For the first time ever he felt free to do what he wanted and he knew that no matter how long if it was only for a short time he wanted it to spend it with her.

“This-this summer affair with Nicholas-is real and solid and here right in front of me.  And with it’s expiration date looming, I’m not going to waste time, not a second of it”

Olivia didn’t want to spend the time with him knowing they couldn’t be together but at the same time she knew she would never get this dream to spend time with the most gorgeous man and prince for that matter one that every woman fantasize about.  Olivia took the risk and took his deal.  Nicholas was incredible and when it was time to part ways he knew he was Royally Screwed because he knew he would never be able to be happy without Olivia.  

teaser2

“Emotion hits me hard, making my heart feel too large for my chest. I stroke her cheek, because she’s so lovely -and because she’s mine.”

This book was such a refreshing reading packed with humor, sexy and steamy scenes, and overall I enjoyed it a lot.  It was about finding true love even if that meant giving everything up for it and making sacrifices. I am so excited to continue the standalone series and can’t hardly wait to read Nicholas brother’s story.  That one should be interesting and I just can’t wait.

“My dad had always said life was full of ups and downs. “Son, you win some days; you lose others. That’s just how it works.”

teaser1

 Matthew Rohan; was born with autism spectrum disorder and a combination of other stuff like ADD and had developed various obsessive-compulsive behaviors aka OCD.  Every single day was a struggle for him.  Everything had to be perfect, he had to have a routine and any changes could cause him to black out and totally lose control.  He was bullied at school and it was just awful to see this.  This boy at only eighteen years old just wanted to graduate high school and was trying his best to adjust to a life without his parents.  He had lost both parents and had an older sister at a facility for autism patients.  Matthew was just adorable thought; he spoke whatever was on his mind without thinking and that made him so interesting and cute.  He also had an Uncle Travis and his wife Beth who were there for him every step of the way.

Mayra Trevino; has never really paid too much attention to Matthew until they were both paired to do a project together.  She knew Matthew was different but she never realized why until they had to interact.  She was kind, patience and noble.  I adored this heroine and her father they were both so important on this story.  At only eighteen years old she had a heart of gold she really wanted to understand Matthew and the more time they spent together the more she wanted to be part of his world and help him with his daily struggles.  At first she was scared but that didn’t stopped her she wanted to help.  Not even Travis the protective uncle was able to keep her away from Matthew once she realized how awesome and special Matthew was.

“You are pretty wonderful…You just need to be given the opportunity to show people that…You are gorgeous. Every girl in our school thinks so, and I am going to be the envy of half the population of Talawanda High School.”

In the beginning of the book Matthew was rear ended by an unknown driver; the driver left the scene but gave him a lottery ticket.  The entire time Matthew had a ticket he was so strict with his routine that checking if that ticket could change his life made him anxious and he rather not know.  That ticket was almost lost but was it the winning ticket? What does that mean for Matthew? All these questions you will have to read this book to understand and find out for yourself.  His disorder wouldn’t allow to even thinking past that before he would break down.  So he stopped thinking about it.

“The next piece will be waiting for you in my driveway,” she said. She kissed me lightly and headed out the door to her car and down the street, taking the cake with her. Shit, Shit, Shit. I couldn’t just let that cake get away, so I jumped into my car and followed her. Do it for the cake, I told myself.”

Image result for gif chocolate cake

This book was so cute, a bit sad, but at the same time super funny.  I have never read a book like it before; it just felt so real to me.  The author really makes you understand the struggles children with special needs go thru in a daily basis and is really refreshing and eye opening.  At the end of each day, Matthew views the day as a win or a loss. The incentive of cake, which I thought was adorable motivated him to try new things.  His aunt and now Mayra would use the cake incentive to help him.  I fell for Matthew and Mayra and all the characters.  The aunt was hilarious she was the bomb.  Matthew was so darn adorable he wanted to feel normal and Mayra was the one that made him feel that way something he never thought possible. I giggled so much until my cheeks hurt reading this book because he wanted to understand sexuality and get to that with Mayra he did but the way the author wrote this was so darn enjoyable and real. I recommend this book to everyone because it will always have a special place in my heart because it meant so much to learn that money is not everything.

My Rating 4 ★★★★ Stars

5 ★★★★★ Stars for the scorching sex scenes!

Genre: Erotic Romance (MMF)
Type: Book 2 of 5 from Exodus End series
POV: Third Person

“Loving two men is a lot easier than you’d imagine.”

teaser-1

This is the story of Trey Mills from Sinners On Tour series which I loved so much and also about the love he has for Reagan Elliot; the female guitarist for Exodus End band along with her body guard Ethan.  The story is told on third person about the struggles of being a famous rock star at least for Reagan who is kind of new to the fame. She asked Ethan to be part of her security and is on tour with them.

The story was well written about Reagan dealing with publicity and about how her two lovers fit in her life without ruining anyone’s reputation.  Trey was opened from beginning he was in love with Reagan and equally in love with Ethan.  However; Ethan and Reagan were more private about it and afraid to come out in the open to their love ones.  They felt like the outsiders didn’t want to be disappointing or be judged by their family because of the feeling they each have for two people.  I mean it is hard to understand that someone could possibly love two people at the same time.  I felt though that their situation was unique the three of them made perfect scene in my eyes and good lord I devoured this book and really enjoyed it so much.

“Love is not always easy or as we expect it to be, but it is worth the struggle. Love is always worth a fight. Just because it’s a challenge doesn’t mean it’s wrong.”

teaser2

Ethan was the support Reagan needed but Trey was her lover and the three fit perfectly well.  There were so much drama; so much issues though because there was still a bit of jealously and insecurities from all of them and this journey thought them that it was ok to be different and love each other and be themselves.   I am going to be honest I wanted to be Reagan so many times haha I mean seriously Trey is the best funny, cocky, and so likable where Ethan was the supported the one who could understand and read all her needs it was just perfect.  A woman’s dream come true and I truly believe anyone looking for a book full of drama, steamy scenes and a wonderful story should definitely read this book.

Image result for gif lost time

Sylvie Solum; grew up in the foster system.  At age of twenty-four she meets Jeremiah Bradford aka Jeremy; a very wealthy and powerful man.  She was trying to land the job of her dreams as an editor. Her life changes completely when they meet. Jeremy purposely asked to meet in person.  

They completely clicked and fell madly in love until tragedy strikes.  Four years later Jeremy wakes up to a nightmare; he finds out he had been in a coma that entire time and the love of his life has moved on.  Sylvie was devastated when Jeremy disappeared; especially because she didn’t know that she was pregnant with his son or what exactly happened to him. All the time she thought he just left her.

teaser w words.jpg

Silas Chambers; an attorney for Jeremy’s family meets Sylvie and he found himself at first feeling sorry for her; she was lost and hurting but then realized how much she needed someone and he ended up being her shield and protector. They got married; life for Silas was great until Jeremy wakes up.  He found himself insecure then because somehow he knew that whatever he and Sylvie had was nothing compared to what she had with Jeremy and that scared him.  He tried to keep her away from him and for Sylvie to let him do so really drove me wild because whether she wanted or not Jeremy was the father of her son and he was entitle to be able to explained himself.

“Time slows again as we look into each other’s eyes. I don’t want to look away. I don’t want to leave her. She breaks eye contact first…disappearing behind a carved glass door.”

Image result for gif lost time

A lot of secrets come out and feelings get hurt.  The anxiety I had trying to figure out what exactly happened and who could be so cruel to let Jeremy go through all that had me on auto angst. However; as I reached the secret and what happened I was angry and so upset. I think I might have had an ulcer after I finished this book.  I think one of the major reasons why I felt like this was that I couldn’t even after I tried so hard; I just couldn’t connect with the heroine the way I wanted to she really got on my nerves.  I usually don’t mind a broken heroine and a hero to save her but she wasn’t broken she was just not strong and independent and letting Silas control her life upset me so much. I never felt connected to Silas either something about him just felt wrong. 

“We can never be what we were, but in this moment, we’re as intimate as two people can be.  Our grip is a silent vow.  We cling to each other, fueled by our common rage. Determined. Bound. Together.”

Image result for gif lost time

Time passed a lot of time before Sylvie let’s Jeremy finally in and the entire time I’m cursing her because the poor guy had already been basically dead in comma for no good reason at all and for her to do that to him was just what made me disliked her character.  I honestly feel that Jeremy got cheated on love; I mean eventually they found each other back again but it hurt to me it truly hurt all the damaged done it was just so painful to watch. How much he loved her and waited until she was able to deal with it all, that was really true love.

“I know that everything has changed. She no longer pulls away when I touch her. When I take her hand, she twines her fingers through mine. She hold my gaze when I brush her hair away from her face. The shift has already happened. I just have to find the right moment and we’ll be us again.”

Overall I enjoyed this story because it kept me hooked once I started. I found it hard to put it down even when it made me upset and angry haha.  I don’t particularly think is an ugly cry book like I wanted and that might be why I was a frustrated so much; I had high hopes of crying but instead I found out getting an ulcer haha.  I felt so much for Jeremy thought he was the one that saved this book for me. I loved him so hard and the way he fought and never gave up made up for everything.  If you like a romantic suspense you will enjoy this book.

“Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well. Be better.” #better #motivation #inspiration

“This is my legacy. To find her killer and to know what answers she’d been bringing to Switzerland.”

bevofox:

Aeris Thorne  is a violinist who recently was given the opportunity of a lifetime to play in the New York City Philharmonic and do what she does best Play Live on stage with her Violin.  She comes back to her home town to visit her father and old friends for the summer before her big dream begins.  The book starts with her hanging out with Gage and her best friend at a nightclub.  She meets Dr. Hunter Cayman outside the club; well she sees him and she immediately feels attracted to him; something she couldn’t explain.  He was beautiful and dangerous at the same time and that intrigued her.  Her father had warned her to stay away from him and of course she becomes more curious about him.

teaser-1-with-words

At the club she sees another girl with Hunter she was as gorgeous as Hunter; her name was Victoria and they looked good together but Aeris didn’t know if they had a love relationship or not she was just in lust with him but for the love of god she couldn’t figure out what was it about him that kept her wanting to see him; she wanted to know him.  Gage has a military history and he had a great childhood memories with Aeris; he also wants to have more than friendship with her but she only saw him as a brother.

Honestly, this book started very slow I was having trouble getting into it until finally the fun began.  I found myself unable to stop reading it.  Aeris curiosity about her father’s relationship with Dr. hot Hunter was too much; she had to know what the mystery was about him and his lab was.  She desperately wanted to solve the mystery behind the gate of the Phoenix Research lab.  What exactly where they hiding? Was it really a contagious diseases lab that had to be so private? Why was her father against it but at the same time talking to them? So many questions she had that curiosity got the best of her.  Little did she know that she was about to get a ride of her life.  A life she had no idea could even be possible. 

“In this small world of two, he’s everything to me and I’m everything to him… Sensations mirrored, echoing back on each other , on and on until infinity…We understand everything. We know everything…What he wants, I want. What sends fireworks exploding in his mind, sends them exploding in me, too.”

Hunter liked Aeris ok I hope he did his actions were different though they were all over the place I felt like I was going out of my mind; one day he is helping her the next he didn’t want to see her and I was a mess in my head. Like seriously?! Hunter make up your mind!!.  Aeris had an accident trying to run away from bad people aka Brewster King. She landed at Hunter’s lab and an experiment was performed and tested for the first time.   This bad guy “Brewster King” wanted to what these lab goods; he had wanted the formula that Hunter had and he was not going to stop until he gets it. 

 “The caterpillar melts inside its protective shell. And gradually their cells become new things. A new body, new eyes. New arms and legs. And something extra the caterpillar didn’t have before. Something special.” “Wings,” Hunter grinds out. “Exactly. And when it’s ready, when its change is complete, it crawls out and emerges like a phoenix. Reborn into something new.”

A time-lapse gif of the darkwing disease. (Dark faerie sickness)  (The gif may not work on Pinterest)

There were just too many unanswered questions by the end of the book though I need more answers so of course I will be patiently waiting for the next book in the series.  This is a new author for me and I was pretty excited to know that there’s more of this story.  I must know what is going to happen next.  I loved how Aeris father was so supported and carrying for her.  I also liked how someway Hunter and Aeris were connected to each other even if it was not by choice I still loved it.  I really hope that their connection does not end I am a bit scared though of what is coming but excited at the same time. I really enjoyed the ride packed with action, science mystery and suspense.  Lovers of mystery and science fiction will really enjoy this one.

Image result for gif airplane

Kendall Sparks aka Perky as Mr. PlayBoy calls her; is running away to think about her future.  At only twenty four years of age she has been left with a big responsibility from her grandfather and she is not sure what to do.  She finds herself at the airport searching for places she could go and escape; however what she didn’t realize was that she will find someone that was going to show her the ride of her life “literally” *sigh*.

teaser-1

Carter C. Clynes, twenty nine; HOT pilot with the most beautiful hazel eyes and the most playboy in his airline was just living life screwing all the woman in each town he landed and every flight attendant except for the lesbian one of course (LOL).  Anyway; he found this way of living as an escape to reality; he hide in the air and with sex.  He had a trauma in the past with love that he couldn’t move on from. However; he meets a girl who makes him want to be better and he tries not to mess up.

“Someday, Perky. Someday…when you’re ready, you’ll realize just how dirty my mouth can be all over you. And you’ll love it.”

Carter and Kendall meet each other at the airport and an adventure of a lifetime begins while they are together.  Carter made Kendall forget the reason why she was trying to get away in the first place.  However; he was the most playboy and her insecurities kept getting on the way of her feelings that slowly both started to developed for each other during their time together.  Carter’s naughty side came out and oh good lord; I was laughing so hard with him he just cracked me up so much I loved his character.  He wanted to get into Kendall panties from day one but he knew she was different and tried his best to keep it in his pants as much as he could; he tried though and it was priceless.  Kendall tries her hardest not to fall for this man but it was almost impossible not to.

“I was just a girl sitting with a hot pilot, sipping drinks on the beach in Rio. I was a confused person, ready to sell her soul and that of her unborn child…Now, I’m just …loved.”

pb - 2.jpg

These two had me laughing from beginning to end. The story was super hilarious and unpredictable.  Believable?! Probably not but I completely enjoyed and devour it none the less. Carter had to deal with his past; he thought he did but after a huge breakup between him and Kendall he realized he was far from being fixed so he tried to get better even if he didn’t have her he wanted to move on.  Kendall on the other hand never gave Carter a chance; she got scared and that threw me off a bit because he was honest with her since the beginning.  However; there’s nothing like a good makeup session haha.  Both characters had to deal with their own demons and found their way back to each other once again.   If you like a light, funny and adventure ride this book is totally for you.

Image result for gif true love

“I knew with my whole heart that Roman still loved me. And I knew with my entire being that I’d always loved him.”

This book opens up in a very fast pace with Roman Leblanc and Elisabeth (Lissy) Keller. Roman is losing the love of his life and is feeling devastated.  Elisabeth is done trying to please her husband and calls it a quit.  They are going through a divorce; he is devastated and in denial and Lis is just sad and conflicted.   Lissy and Roman tried to have children for many years however a child was not on their cards.  After so much money spent Lissy was able to have a child to only lose the baby right after.  Roman didn’t know how to help her and distanced himself from her with work thinking that he could help that way but instead it just pushed her away from him.

“She was the mirage.  A woman I needed more than water and yet couldn’t reach no matter how hard I tried.”

Image result for gif true love

Two years later they are both put in the same room with news they were shocked to hear. This news changes everything; for Roman is the beginning of a new start and for Lissy is the most horrible day of her life at least that’s what she thought.  Little did she know that this will end up also being a great new start for her.  However; this news was not so easy to take; after finding out that they could possibly have a child somewhere; life pulls them back together and this time Roman is never letting her go.

teaser2

Let me tell you his bossiness and protective ways had me all hot and bothered and feeling incredible good about all the event on this book.  Lissy tries so hard to not let him back in but damn it’s impossible to resist a hot alpha that would do anything to win her back.  

teaser 1.jpg new.jpg

We also meet a character that we will be able to find out more about on book two and let me tell you I cannot wait for their story.  This book was excellent, I really loved everything about it.  It was a book that once you start you will not put it down until to finish it.  It had a lot of suspense, sexy scenes, a hot alpha, a couple struggling to work what they thought it was not repairable.  This book was just incredible I enjoyed the ride and cannot wait to start the next one and see the end of this amazing ride.

Chelsea Jameson; is living a single life after a bad breakup.  She is trying her best to move on however she is finding it so hard to do so because she somehow feels like she failed as a person when she discovered that her ex has cheated on her and falls in love with someone else.  Chelsea has some issues to work on; moving into her new apartment was nice and she spends a lot time reading sexy books, drinking wine, and trying to figure out how to move on.

Damien Hennessey; a sexy tatted gorgeous neighbor who is very successful living his life in the moment had no intention of giving love a second change.  He was happy living a single life; painting for fun and enjoying the shared custody of his lovely dogs.  He meets Chelsea and they connect right away but he has a secret that keeps him from having any relationships.

“I’ve always wanted you, from the moment you knocked on my door and called me the devil…I just need to taste your lips, feel your moan over my tongue again.”

Instead they become really good friends; I laughed so much at how funny these two were together it was hysterical.  He teased her about her sexy books; she teased him about his stalking moved on her and I was just fascinated to see how their relationship developed into something more deeply than friendship. However; there was a point where Chelsea couldn’t handle the sexual tension anymore she wanted something more with Damien and he wouldn’t budge.  She finally gives up on trying getting in a relationship with him because he wasn’t letting her in.  It was so sad and I was so hurt but I also did loved Damien’s brother Ty which was super cool and he was my hero in this book.

“You can’t control your attraction to someone. If it’s there, it’s there. It can either be ignored or acted upon but not controlled.”

The secrets finally come out; their relationship finally gets to the next lever after so much they both go through.  I truly loved this story because it was about family, love, hopes, dreams, and it showed that even when we are scared we need to live for today regardless of what the future will be.  I recommend this book for lovers of second chance romance.

“We were too damaged to be together.  Too broken to find our way back to what we used to be.”

 2016-12-8--16-09-30

Connor O’Neill up until last book we had no idea what had happened to him.  When everyone thought he was dead he was living in hell. Connor meets a beautiful girl when he was nineteen years old and falls for her and is willing to give his life for her and be her protector.  Alina falls in love with him as well and even though they’ve only known each other for such a short time while she was doing a job as a photographer for a Miami Messenger Magazine; she knew that telling him there was a bad man hunting her was not a choice. He would try to protect her and already losing her father to this evil man was enough.  She was threatened and she had no other choice but to leave Connor. 

2016-12-8--16-48-46 

Breaking his heart was the only way to save him. At least that’s what she thought.  Carlos Moreno finds out Alina had a man she loved; he knew she will never truly love him but he was a selfish bastard that he made her paid by capturing Connor.  Two years after Alina left Connor he was forced to find out what truly happened to her but couldn’t do anything about it; instead he was trapped and tortured.  He was chained and incapable of helping her while hating himself for not being there for her and for resenting her for something she was not at fault.

 “Her cries echoed.  Her words.  The constant barrage of hatred, pain and despair tearing through me over and over again. No. She was mine. I was supposed to protect her.”

 

Connor was giving a medicine to block his memories and make him a robot to work for the bad people.  Only after seven years of captured and only then was he introduced to Alina as a test of the drug to make sure he truly forgotten everyone.  Her worse nightmare comes down in front of her; because the one thing she wanted to protect and hide from Carlos was Connor.  Carlos had already taken all her family from her and there was no hope for her. Connor becomes a machine only taking orders from the bad traffic lords and didn’t recognize her and ahhh it was so painful.

I love Connor; this book was told from both pov’s it goes back and forth to the present where Alina is saved and to the past to the ugly years of suffering.  Connor is now safe from the bad people and so is Alina; however he is not save from himself and his nightmares.  He can’t forgive himself for hurting the people he loved even though it wasn’t his fault. The struggle for his sanity is real but the only person keeping him sane was Alina.  He didn’t want to lose her again; he becomes possessive and overprotective and I freaking love him for it.

 However; he didn’t want to see his best friend Deck or his sister Georgie which hurt my heart so deeply.  They loved him so much and it was so painful to see this.

“Damn it, Connor.” Her voice rose, “My brother fights until the end. He never gives up.  He fights until he gets it right, even if it kills him.”

 This book was so emotional, sexy, and intense and it was truly sad for me to know this is the end of these amazing characters I felt so in love with.  I absolutely loved everything about this book and how the author made me love them hard; learning that healing isn’t easy but love does conquer everything when you fight for it.  When Georgie finally saw Connor and spoke to him it broke me but I loved it because he heard her words and wow what he did was amazing.  The ending was just incredible having all of my boys and their girls together just warmed my heart and I just know I will never forget their journey.  I truly highly recommend this series to everyone, you will fall in love with the boys of the unyielding series there’s no doubt about it.

BLURB

This is Connor’s story.

Unstable.
Unpredictable.
Consumed by perfect rage.
I was fighting who I’d become and what I’d done.

There was nothing I cared about except her.
She was mine.
But I’d forgotten her—my shutterbug.
And I lost her.

Until now.

I’d do anything to possess her again.
Anything to keep her safe.
Protect her against my biggest opponent.

The monster.

Me.

Tinker Garret was married to a man who only cared about his carrier and his name.  When tragedy strikes and Tinker lost her baby; the only thing she wanted so badly.  She realized she finally had enough of putting up with the man she thought cared for her and she ended her married.  However; he didn’t wanted to let go for his image of course he only cared about what the publicity would think of him so he lied to everyone after over a year of being separated that they were still together. 

Gage has been a member of the Reapers Club for a long time now; so when he was asked to move to investigate another club he didn’t hesitate to accept the challenge.  He had to pretend he was in love with Talia; a twenty some year old slut who was his only connection to getting close to the other club.  She was so annoying I really wanted to hurt her but Gage couldn’t stand her either so I loved him for it.  However; his duties was to his Club first and he had to deal with it until her.

Falling in love was defiantly not on Gage’s agenda specially when his Club was in the line but he still could resist and couldn’t stop the feelings he was developing for his new landlord Tinker.  She lusted over him as well and let me tell you the sexual tension was so strong I was going out of my mind.  However; when he finally told her the truth and decided to claim her as his property; well it was super-hot and intense.

“I’ve been suffocating, waiting for you, and I don’t think you’ve had it any easier”

 I was missing my bikers and I truly enjoyed this book.  There was drama in the town, I was laughing so hard with Tinker’s best friends comments and the chemistry between Gage and Tinker was inevitable; super-hot and steamy.  There was definitely club business, action, suspense and I absolutely devoured this story in one setting.  To all of my biker lovers and everyone who is following this series I hope you enjoy this ride, I truly did.

“I love you, I want you. Every day for the rest of my life.”

t1

Tyler (Ty) Rollins; after her mother’s death at a very young age was forced to travel with her father’s baseball team.  She hated it at first but soon she discovered that she loved it and she believed baseball was her family and life.  Her relationship with her father was incredible; she was the team’s baler and she loved everything about it.

t3

Chase Stern; was the best of the best when it came to baseball.  Every woman wanted him and every team knew that having him on their team meant winning.  Chase loved the game but his dream was always to be a New York player for the Yankees until he finally got it.  Little did he know that his life will be changed when he meets the daughter of one of the most famous players of the team.

Ty has always been fascinated with Chase; living in the world of baseball that’s all she knew all her life scores, titles, statistics and she knew Chase will someday make history.  When she found out he was traded to be part of her father’s team she was beyond excited; until she wasn’t.  Ok she was immediately intimated by him and he fell head over heal for her.  Their attraction was unstoppable and even her father knew it way before this happened.

 “Our kiss had energy, it was a battle-one fought with gentle teases, exploratory touches, and passion.”

Their sweet love and attraction was fantastic I absolutely adored Chase with all of my heart.  This book had a bit of angst right in the middle and a mysterious killer that was on the loose that had Ty extremely nervous.  There was a twist on the story that left me a bit heart broken and devastated.  Overall this was a fantastic, enjoyable and a fast read.  If you are a fan of sports and a sexy read you will enjoy this one.

“I learned at that moment that the devil, the true one, is people”

2016-27-7--15-03-06

This story is told from Fielding Bliss’s point of view. It goes back to the summer when he was only thirteen years of age and goes to current year where he reflects on how the Summer of 1984 changed his and his family’s lives.

When Fielding was young and only thirteen years old his father; Autopsy wrote a letter to the devil asking him to show himself.  Right around that time Sal; a colored thirteen year old boy shows up to Autopsy’s work and becomes friends with Fielding.  Sal tells Fielding that he is the DEVIL and was sent there.  The entire town freaks out at first unable to believe it.  However; bad things started to happen around the time SAL aka the Devil shows up and everyone starts to blame Sal. 

Fielding find himself trapped in a world of racism. His father and mother took Sal in and adopted him as their own while the town hated him for his color and for appearing to their town.  Sal was a very likable boy and very soon he became very attached to Fielding and his family.  Sal had a lot life experiences and I was fascinated with his ways of thinking and the way he showed evil and good to his now new family.

“A boy holds a gun but cannot fire it, even when he knows it is the right thing to do. A god would never hold the gun in the first place…On the day you are asked to hold the gun once more, You will have to decide whether to stay the child…or finally become the man.”

This book was so different from anything I’ve read before.  I found myself so confused at first but then as I kept on reading I slowly felt deep into this story and WOW what a trip this was.  This story is about life, choices, death, good and evil.  I really enjoyed the connection between Fielding and his older brother Grand.  Grand holds a special place in my heart.  He was smart, funny and loved hard.  Fielding worshiped his bother and Grand loved him so hard in returned; Sal was a great character who definable made an impact as well.

“Sometimes I think older brothers should not be allowed.  We fall in love with them too much.  They are our everything, all the while, they hurt out of sight for our sake.”

When I hit eighty-three percent on this book I found myself unable to stop crying.  I cried all the way until the end because it just hurt so much and the writing was just incredible.  I encourage everyone to read this book; it is a book that will have you deep thinking about the cruelty of people and the consequences that evil and selfish choices of people made.  You will have to dive in going open minded because this book will have you rethinking everything you ever knew.

“Often the most confident and arrogant kids are the most broken inside.”

2016-25-7--14-36-28

Clara Hatton is the new teacher in town; well a lower class town but is a big deal to her indeed.  Recently moved to England and landing the job of her dreams; at only twenty-four years old; Clara was happy for this opportunity.  She was pretty, petite and defiantly did not looked like twenty four; she looks more like a student herself.  It was that reason that it was so hard for her students to keep away from her; they really loved to messed with her however was bound to make an impression on her students and not let them intimidate her.  After all, she had one goal and that was to make a difference in the lives of her students in a positive way.

 Dante Rata; a junior in high school and only fifteen-years old has had a hard and troubled life.   It would be almost impossible not to love this boy with his cockiness, the way he look, talks, walks and the way he acts in the outside you wouldn’t even guess he was that young.  However; in the inside he was tender and broken you can’t helped but want to protect him.  On the first day of school Dante meets his new English teacher not the way he would have preferred he was being attacked by a bully and Mrs Hatton saw right away through him. That embarrassment didn’t stop Dante from lusting over Clara.

 “He won’t need to be involved if you turn up to class.  Please, just come for me.”…”His lips twitched, a slight grin replacing his crawl. “I’d love to come for you.”

The story was deep and honestly I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  The age difference between a boy student and a female teacher freaked me out at first; however this was a tiny and minor freaked considering everything else that happened on this book.  This book is so much more, so much deeper and I couldn’t helped but devouring it all in one setting. 

“Humans are savages, no worse than animals, preying on the weak and vulnerable for their own gain.” Dante

Clara was also drawn to Dante’s beauty and confident character.  However; she wasn’t like everyone else around Dante.  She was good to him and was doing her best to really help him, to get him the help that he desperately needed.  Dante was so stubborn though he kept tempting her so much so that it was so hard for Clara to resist her desires.  

“I had never met a boy with that much confidence, or even the audacity to say half the things he’d said to me.”

 2016-25-7--15-15-58

The ending of this book is just the beginning of so much to come.  I can’t wait to know more about Clara, Dante and the side characters.  I believe this book is a wonderful start to a fantastic series.  I would defiantly recommend this to everyone who is open minded and who is not scare to read about struggles that other people go through and learn about them.

Reese Annesley was afraid to get in a seriously relationship; she just never got lucky enough to find the right partner.  So she decides to go on a date spree lol.  While on a date which was truly boring she encounters this strange; he was hot and funny who saves her from that boring date.  Little did Reese knows that fate will put him in her path soon enough where he eventually ends up becoming her Boss. 

 

Chase Parker; lost the love of his life seven year prior to meeting Reese.  He thought that eventually he had moved on but apparently he hadn’t.  He found just random sex nights was helping but in all honestly it wasn’t. Chase never thought that he would feel whole again until he meets Reese.  At first her looks and chemistry is all he saw he just wanted to get her out of his system by sleeping with her. 

 

2016-22-7--15-50-09

Chase didn’t realize that Reese was not an easy target.  She likes the chase and CHASE too haha but she was not going to let him in so easily.  Her prior mistakes left her thinking twice about sleeping with the Bossman.  At first I honestly was getting irritated by her not giving in because it was obvious that she liked him and it was defiantly a mutual thing.  However later down I realized she was smart protecting her heart when Chase ends up doing exactly what she was afraid of “breaking her heart”.  Chase didn’t do it intentionally of course, he had his reasons which I completely understood, didn’t mean I loved what he did but I understood him enough to forgive him and let him back in haha.

This story was sweet, funny, emotional, and it was just overall a wonderful and enjoyable sexy read.  If you are looking for a cocky boss, a funny couple and great side characters this book is definable for you.

My Rating 5 ★★★★★ Crazy Crows ~ Stars

Genre: Paranormal/Vikings
Type: Book 2 of in the Call of Crows Series
POV: Shifting – Multiple

This review can also be found on GOODREADS.

This book was phenomenal. I fell in love with all the crows and Vikings since book one and going into this book I didn’t know what to expect. When I realized it was Jace’s story I was super excited and I know that this one was going to be even better than the first one if that’s even possible. I was correct this book had everything. We meet new characters but we still get to see Kera and her man Vig and enjoyed all the drama of the crows.

Jacinda “Jace” Berish is shy at least that’s what everyone thinks because she doesn’t want to talk with anyone. However what everyone interprets as shy is nothing but away for her to escape from speaking to anyone. She didn’t feel the need to speak if she didn’t have to. She was given the gift of rage by the Scult when her husband killed her and tried to bury her. She awoke as a crow and not just any crow but one that with he rage could kill everyone.

Danski “Ski”Eriksen is the leader of he guardian Vikings; he meets Jace on one of their missions and her anger and attitude attracted to him. There was just something about this crow that he liked. Maybe the fact that she was shy or the fact that she knew so many languages either way he like her right from the start. He found himself needing her help to translate books for their Viking clan. However; Jace didn’t want anything to do with them or anyone.

The crows blew everything out of proportion as usual and decided that someone Jace’s sudden race needed to stop and they though perhaps getting her a job will help her be more social. Jace didn’t want to be social so she decided to accept Ski’s job position to translate books for them.

Their relationship was so funny and just perfect I absolutely loved these two. Jace had a dark past that she preferred not talking about but she felt at home and different with this clans and she opened up to them. They immediately loved her and protected her. Now Jace had the crows and these nerdy gods to protect her. But she didn’t need protecting mostly everyone else needed to be protecting from her and her rage once she would go into rage there was nothing that could stop her.

This book was full of funny events you will laugh so much to the point that your belly will hurt. There is so much drama but what do you expect with a bunch of girl crows fighting all the time and you will see a lot of action and defiantly some sexy steamy scenes. This book was packed with everything I look for in a book and it will leave you wanting more because yes there is more and I am already looking forward to the next book on the series. Lovers of paranormal would enjoy this book as long as you are comfortable with multiple point of views.

MORE OF THESE CRAZY CROWS I love it…

This is the story of Declan’s twin brother who we got to see a little of him on book one.  I was already excited to know about his story. Dax Blay; does not believe in love anymore. Since the lost of his mother he didn’t feel the need to get attach to anyone.  For him his school days were just nights of fun and no commitments until he met her.  However; he had no idea that Remi was going to have such an impact in his life he decided to let her go and keep going the way he only knew.  Being a hot stuff and a player that didn’t do relationships.

Remi Montague; fell in love with Dax only after spending a 72hrs with him.  He had no clue of course to him she was only another adventure at that time.  However; Remi never forgot the way she felt with him.  She eventually moves on  or at least she thought she did and is now about to get married only now her fiance decided to call out the wedding. 

Now in London confused about everything and heart broken; Remi decides to enjoy her “ex-honey” moon trip and have fun with her best friend.  She is bound to let the past stay in the past and move on with her life even thought she didn’t know how to.  Never would she had imagine to see her first love again; the one that broke her when they were in high school.

Dax had a bet with his best friend that he would take the next girl for a one night stand; however life puts Remi back into his life after so many years he had assumed she had married.  He finds out she is now single and even thought he was scared he wanted to try the chemistry they both apparently still have for each other.  

Things didn’t worked out as they wanted though; events happened that got me all frustrated with the both of them.  I was mad at Remi for being weak and letting the ex barked right into her life after what he did to her.  I was mad at Dax for giving up so easily and not trying hard enough.  These two definitely gave me some anxiety haha but I really enjoyed their chemistry and the tension they build up and the battles they went thru to be together.  Overall, this one a very enjoyable read.

This story is so unique and interesting; it’s definitely one that I won’t forget anytime soon.

Wavy’s life starts pretty bad growing up with a junkie as a mother her life doesn’t look good from the beginning. At only five years old her mother gets sent to prison for drug charges as well as the mother’s husband who is not Wavy dad (no clue who the real father is). Val; Wavy’s mother has a sister and a mother. The sister tries to keep Wavy from going to foster systems however she soon realized her niece is a troubled child and gives up. Grandma steps in and keep her for couple of years. Those two years were the best ones for Wavy; grandma understood her and loved her. Sadly life for Wavy goes down the hill when her mother is released from prison and wants her back. Grandma was dying of cancer and had no choice but to let her go.

Val was a selfish mother not only did she only cared about her man and drugs but she gets knocked up again so poor Wavy has to care for herself so young but also for her baby brother.

I went through so many emotions while reading this book. I was sad, then angry at this awful mother; then I cried when grandma passed away because it was so sad to think what kind of life is ahead for this young girl.

Wavy had issues with eating and touching and speaking. She keeps to herself but she is not stupid. Living with an irresponsible parent though her that she can’t trust anyone. However; she meets Kellen at only nine years old and she immediately trusted him because he really show that he cared. He took her to school and paid for her tuition for over four years. He helped her with her little brother; also helped her with groceries and cleaning their house; something a parent should do. In the meantime the mother is passed out without a care in the world.

Kellen has a history of bad luck he was close to committing suicide several times before he meets Wavy. After a motorcycle accident where she called for help; he knew he wanted to be there to help her back. However; here’s where I got pretty sick to my stomach to the point that I wanted to throw up. He was much older and she was falling for him. I know she didn’t have it easy and she saw him as her hero but he started feeling the same knowing the age was a big no no. I was really uncomfortable that they developed feelings so young.

However; the story doesn’t end there. So many things happen on this book that will have you feeling so sad, so devastated and upset as well. I cried several times because wow this book was deep. The writing was just incredibly and the multiple points of views about how everyone around these two would see things. I cried for a girl that needed real parents, I cried for a little boy that was forced to lie and was separated from his only family for seven years, I cried for Kellen ok I didn’t cry for him but I was kind of sad that he was handled a shitty life as well and he did tried to help even thought he had to pay for things he shouldn’t have done.

Overall; this writing was unique and phenomenal and very emotional. This book is not for everyone; trust me if you have children you might want to read the blurb and read at your own discretion because this baby will gut you and make you uncomfortable. However; the feels and emotions I look for in a book were here so I did enjoy the ride this book delivered.

Once she was able to understand his pain she wanted to save him so badly.  She was so strong I absolutely loved her character.  She didn’t take no for an answer either and she was a fighter she would fight for what she believed. 

“For a moment, we weren’t Jace and Lucia, but elements of fire and ice, light and darkness, charging the particles of air around us a cataclysm of destructive energy.”

Overall this book was a fast page turner I enjoyed it so much.  It was packed with so much action and suspense.  If you enjoyed Ricochet you will love this one.  Even thought is not a part of Ricochet; Alec was mentioned and I about had a mini heart attack because of the excitement haha.  I did cry on this book I am not even ashamed; the history of Jase and what him and his brother went thru really hurt me.  I was bawling like a baby I fell in love with Jase so hard it is truly easy to love him.  I also enjoyed the side characters like his best friend which I am dying to read more about on the next book. Lovers of action, suspense, and a great romance will truly enjoy this ride.

My Rating 3.75★★★★Stars

Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Standalone
POV: First Person – Dual Mostly Female

This was a bit different read for me.  I enjoyed this story however I was expecting ugly crying pain and maybe it was just my high need and expectation for it that the story just came a bit short for me. However; it was sweet and very enjoyable.

The book starts with Presley’s horrible tragedy.  Her lover, best friend and husband of many years dies and she finds herself lost with no money and with no other option then to return home to her parents and ask for her.  She has two lovely boys that are going thru the emotions of losing their father and not understanding what is going on. They don’t want to be in a ranch in the middle of no where.  They miss their friends in the city and their old life.  

Zack is Pres’s young love; she never thought she would see him again after the way they ended things as a young love birds.  She loved him so much so that she never returned to see her family so that she wouldn’t have to see Zack. He got a deal he couldn’t resist as a baseball player and wanted Pres with him but apparently not enough to keep her. 

Zack wanted her back and was bound to do anything to be everything she wanted it.  He became a friend to the boys and helped her deal with the lose of her husband.  They find each other once again; time seemed to never end when true love exist. I really liked Zack’s brother and enjoyed his funny ways.  Pres best friend was also a character i enjoyed.  Overall this was a nice fast read. If you are looking for a sweet romance this book is for you.

“Even villains have a happy ending every now and again.

2016-31-3--21-00-59.png

Troy Brennan son of an Irish mob; was powerful and full of himself. Everyone knew not to mess with him; however he used his mob power differently.  He decided not to follow on his father’s footsteps but do whatever he wished for instead.  The death of his father had him thinking about his life and he was bound to avenge his father’s death. 

Sparrow Raynes young and naïve was given to Troy for marriage.  She was devastated but her father had no money and way too many debts to pay.  Her mother left her at a young age and she had no one other than her low life father.  Her relationship with Troy the “Fixer” was intense.  She was stubborn and hard headed and he was the same way. 

2016-31-3--21-28-57.png

Troy never intended to fall in love again yes, his heart and trust was broken and he told himself never again.  Well like the saying goes never say never; because he completely utterly falls for Sparrow and becomes protected over her.  At first he was such an ass I was so angry and frustrated with him I wanted to hurt him.  I sure had a love/hate relationship with Troy.  However; he sure made it up for it and oh boy this book was hot and steamy and full of suspense.  This book was sexy, suspenseful with a bit action and drama; when you thought you figure out who the killer of his father was and who is after him and hurting his wife; better think again. The author takes you on a wild twisted journey it was just incredible.  Fans of mafia and romantic suspense stories this book is for you.

BLURB

Troy Brennan

Every southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heart throb with steel blue eyes. “The Fixer” who can make or break you in this city.

Oh, and my new husband.

Sparrow Raynes

That’s me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life.
But then he caged me.
Kidnapped me.
And killed every chance I had to runaway from the place where we grew up.
Put simply, Troy Brennan clipped my wings.

I have dreams, big ones, but I doubt he’d ever let me chase them. I have no idea why he’d decided to take me as his wife. But I do know this: pissing off this man will not do me any good. At all.

When I saw the genre of this book I knew I had to have it and surely enough It was a winner. An absolute mind thriller full of suspense and twists; Aleatha’s writing at it’s best!.

So many questions and twists; however we will have to wait patiently to find out all of this on the next book in this fantastic and extraordinary series.  I was so conflicted while reading this book there were so many things happening and I felt like I couldn’t read fast enough to get to the bottom of everything. I had so many theories and questions but as I keep reading toward the end I was utterly shocked and flipping out; nothing is what it seems and every time you think you know you better think again. This book will have you second guessing everything you thought and will have you on the edge of your seat. Lovers of crime/thrillers and suspense look no more this book is for you.

“Death is chasing us down, and I can’t let it win…The sun sleeps and the monsters come alive, stalking and chasing us through the night..I don’t want to die.”

2016-30-5--19-36-05

Once upon a time a woman finds herself happy with a husband and a lovely child but in a blink of an eye her life changes.  Her loving husband becomes a monster; he gets the virus that is spreading and killing the entire world.  The husband is now dangerous and kills their only child the woman has no choice but to save herself by killing the one she loved. There was a disease that evolved and infected more and more people until they infected the world, until no one was safe. 

“The end is inevitable. It is death, and one way or another, it will come for us.”

Out Of The Dark is an emotional, heart whelming, powerful story about a woman; a mother; fighting for survival when there is no hope. When she was finally given up and decided there was no one and nothing to live for anymore she finds a little angel.  This woman finds her reason for living; her reason for being.  A blonde child, with beautiful curls is hiding in a field of yellows, oranges, greens of sunflowers.  This girl was LILLY; she was hiding from the monsters and this woman finds her and decides that she will LIVE for this child; she will do anything in her power to keep this child alive even if deep inside she knew it was most likely impossible that they will survive this horror.  

2016-30-5--19-53-30

2016-30-5--21-18-09

The days are not long enough when they need the light; the monsters only come out at night.  They are loud, have red eyes, claws and are animals but in a human figure.  In this dangerous life the only hope they have is to live one day at a time hoping that one day they’ll find a safe place.  Traveling on foot, finding whatever they can eat to survive and sometimes not even eating for days was a nightmare in itself but if they still could breathe there was still hope.  They will find happiness on the simple things like water and vegetables and anything worth it.

“I want to see this smile on her face every day for as long as I can.  Because all we are left with at the end is a handful of memories to brighten the darkness.”

This book gutted me; broke me; it left me breathless.  It was such an emotional, heart breaking roller caster ride.  The writing was incredible and phenomenal! I felt like I was this mother from the beginning to the end.  The deep writing on this book was just an amazing ride and was just WOW.  You will not find a love romance in this book but instead a love between a mother and a daughter during post-Apocalypse times. I promise once you read this book you will never forget it.  It’s taking everything I have to finish this review as for I have cried on every paragraph and quote I have written; the pain in my chest is so much and strong I don’t think it will ever go away.  I finished this book with lots of tears and knots in my throat and a stabbing pain in my chest. But I regret nothing, this book was amazing and now I am looking forward to reading book two as soon as it comes out.

“You’re who I am, Skye.  Without you, none of this means a damned thing to me.”

2016-26-5--21-29-29.png

description

If you have been following the series you know that Danny and Skye’s story is one that I have been dying to read; and now it’s finally here!.  Danny is the son of Spike another biker of the Original Sinners; Danny is supposed to follow his father’s footsteps and become president of the club soon.  He dreams nothing but to be in charge; that is the life and choice he has made and knew all along that it’s what he wanted to do.  

“We want two different things, and neither of us is willing to give up on what we love.”

Skye is the daughter of Cade and Addy the first couple who started this journey of the Sinners series.  I loved those two since the beginning and now we get to see the story of their daughter.  Skye grew up in the club spoiled and protected; her and Danny had been best friends since little and it wasn’t until their teens that they discovered a different type of attachment to each other.  A new, mutual feeling of crush, love and soul mates.  Skye however was scared and always tried to hide it and fight it.  She didn’t want their friendship to be ruined if their relationship didn’t worked out.

“How can you hate me for wanting a life…, You’re so pissed that I didn’t choose you, but fuck, Danny, you didn’t choose me either.”

description

Danny would of done anything for Skye but she chose to leave everything and start a new life away from her family and love ones. Skye wanted to travel, discover the world away from danger.  She however; did not expected to be so wrong her love was always right in front of her and she threw it away for something that she didn’t realized she didn’t want. Confusion and sadness and the thoughts of being in danger all the time made her chose a life that would never made her happy because she wasn’t with the family who loved her more than anything. 

2016-26-5--22-01-14

When Skye realized what she wanted she found herself conflicted and alone.  She had left her first love her soul mate who apparently had moved on.  I will be honest I was pretty upset at both Skye and Danny.  Skye for not giving Danny a chance; at Danny for not chasing her and making her stay with him and moving on too quickly. However; even though this bothered me a bit I still enjoyed their story.  There was a blood scene that I was freaking the hell out had me a bit scared for a minute but overall this was a very enjoyable story.  To all the reader following this series and all MC lovers will enjoy this fast read.

“We were strong separately, but when we were together, we were impenetrable.”

2016-22-5--15-13-37.png

EVIL is a standalone paranormal story, a battle between Demons and Angels that takes place in high school in the city of Minnesota.  It focus around the BRADEN foursome family who are perfect, gorgeous, mysterious and dysfunctional.  The Braden family are composed by Kellan (dark and smoking HOT); Shay quiet and she don’t like drama; Giuseppa (Gus) she likes to sleep with all the boys and have fun but she could get carried away in a fight; and lastly Vespar he has an attitude and don’t mind fighting anyone or anything.  Everyone knew better than to mess with them.  However; Shay was different the guys seem to mess with her but little did they know that she was more capable of protecting herself.  She knew it too but refused to accept that she was different than everyone.  Kellan knew it all but he wanted her to find out at her own time.  He knew he will be there for her when she was ready to accept her truth. 

2016-22-5--15-41-40.png

Kellan was always protective of Shay; something Shay’s sister and brother resent her for they couldn’t comprehend why such a close bond.  Kellan was a powerful demon living on earth all for the love of Shay; he was a pure ALPHA MALE.  Shay only wanted to be normal and because of it she blocked out her past,her memories;she didn’t remember why she couldn’t see her parents or why she looked so much different; all she wanted was to be normal.  However; when her past comes crashing on her and she finally finds out who she really was and what it really means; so many battles and secrets comes out. Kellan and Shay are in a battle with family, demons, angels and everyone is looking for them; they want their powers but they don’t know that their bond is too strong to break.

2016-22-5--16-03-12.png

This book was a full of action and it was a bit nerve wrecking;  I was on the edge the entire time because I really didn’t know what was coming next.  We see Demons, Angels, and Magic.  I loved everything about it.  We meet unforgettable characters like Shay’s aunt and her real brother.  I liked how Kellan and Shay could understand each other so well and knew exactly how to protect each other.  They could talk to each other in their minds which was hard to do only bonded people could do it. There’s some amazing action and sacrifices that left me in awe.  This book was packed with suspense and shocking events.  If you are looking for a fantastic fast pace story full of action, suspense, a little romance in the mix you will enjoy this one.

“Logan Kade was a tornado. When he showed up, he took over, and everything was swept up in his wake.”

2016-01-5--23-02-40.png

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Logan Kade is the shit and everyone knows it.  However; he often hides under his cool the sadness of his past.  His parents are not perfect and he resents them so that he has trouble trusting people.  He and Mason are it; they have their family which is basically both of them, Sam and Nate.  No one else enters their trust family circle unless they earn it.  

Taylor Bruce recently moved to the same college that Logan attends.  Her father is the football coach at the university.  Taylor has issues of her own; she don’t trust easily and don’t let anyone in after her high school sweetheart left her and abandon her when she most needed him the most.  After the death of her mother she decided to move with her father however; she feels like he had abandon her as well.  He just couldn’t handled his wife’s death and in the process distanced himself from Taylor working all the time and not making time for her.  Taylor and Logan shared a class together and she tries her best not to get intimidated by him. 

“Kade commanded this whole room. It was overwhelming, all of that power radiating from him, and having it directed at me? It was a whole new experience.”

Logan first meets Taylor at a party and he couldn’t helped noticing her.  She was about to defend Sam from trouble and he knew that only trust worthy people do that.  He wanted to know this girl that would put her life in the line to protect his family.  Logan is not a chaser but with Taylor he was different he couldn’t explain it.  She could see thru his cockiness and soon finds out she was right.  They were both damaged and in need of the same thing love and trust. I really wished Taylor was a bit more of a badass like Sam but she still worked for me.  I liked her and Logan they both worked perfect for each other.

2016-01-5--23-26-55.png

2016-01-5--23-36-21.png

This was another great read full of action and I love the Kade’s so much.  Logan was able to protect Taylor from herself and made her part of their trust family.  Sam and Mason were so supported as well I loved how they all took care of each other and took charge when they needed to.  I am looking forward for more of the Kades on the next book in the series.

“There were no coincidences in life.  This journey we took, however fucked up of a turn it made, was meant to happen for us.” 

cover 1.png

description

This book sucked me in from the beginning, it was hilarious and I fell in love with both characters Graham and Soraya.  It all started with a regular day of work where Soraya meets this cocky prick on her regular train ride to her work.  Graham’s driver called in sick and he had no choice but to take the train to work.  He was a busy man and didn’t realized he dropped his phone on his way out at his stop.  Soraya finds it after checking him out of course; her thoughts had me in giggles.  I absolutely loved her personality from the beginning.

Graham Morgan; successful business owner had his heart broken and he had been betrayed.  He no longer believed in love and after his mother’s death he was done with people.  He became cold and distant he didn’t care for people and just put a brick wall between his heart and never let anyone in again.  Graham thought that by being successful and becoming a workaholic he would make his mother proud.  

Soraya Venedetta; has never really being in love before because she never let anyone in. Her father has broken up their family and hurt her in the process she didn’t believe in love either.  Therefore; she guarded her heart so deeply that way there was no way she would get hurt.  That one day she find’s Graham phone changed her life though.  She managed to find out where he worked and decided to take a visit and deliver his phone.  He was a prick in her eyes and she wanted him to know she was honest and could give him what was his.  

Their first meeting did not went well; ok they never met because Mr. Prick refused to see her so Soraya being the smart ass she was which is why I loved her; she took selfies of her body and texted to him and left his cell phone with his secretary.  Graham did not see that coming he was utterly shocked and impressed with that woman he wanted to know who she was.

2016-01-5--15-01-26.png

Graham find out who Soraya was and he pursued her by texting her.  They were both from two completely different worlds but that didn’t stopped him he wanted her.  She intrigued him; she made him feel things he hasn’t been able to think since his ex betrayed him.  They’re relationship started friendly texting; flirting; and she didn’t let him in easy it was super hilarious how she would tease him.  Soraya is defiantly my type of girl, she makes him work for her and it just made their relationship so much more interesting and intense.  

“God, I need to touch you…I don’t think we are right for each other. I’m not your type…And what exactly is my type?…a snobby, rich bitch? Someone who compliments a stuck-up suit such as yourself…Well, there’s only one person I want to be all over right now, Soraya.  All. Over. You.”

2016-01-5--16-22-18.png

I laughed so much while reading this book; specially when Soraya was at work.  She was an assistant to an advice columnist run in the newspaper and now website called Dear Abby but put out by a woman who is not nice.  Her boss writes them back as if she is the nicest person on earth but in the contrary she is not. Soraya sometimes was given the opportunity to respond to these people writing and oh  my lord i laughed and cried it was so funny; loved how she thinks.  This column is also used in a wonderful way throughout the book; Mr. Prick takes advantage too and he soon realize he knows more about Soraya he knows exactly which columns she writes.  I loved it so much.

There were ups and downs once Graham and Soraya where finally able to compromise with each other but I wouldn’t have wanted any other way.  I enjoyed every single part of this book.  My Cocky and his goat did a quick appearance at the end that had me laughing in tears just utterly unexpected and super enjoyable.

“If we opened our soul for others to see, The darkest parts of us might be free.”

2016-06-4--00-26-23.png

Drifter focus on Mercedes the daughter of Spike.  We met her on Pandemonium and I was dying to get my hands on her story after I finished the first book.  

Mercedes at twenty one years old decides to revel and get some freedom from her family form the MC club.  Her father is over protected of her and she needed her own space.  She moves to Detroit to attend college.  On Pandemonium she met a musician that intrigued her one kiss that melted her and she never thought she would see him again.  Life at collage wasn’t all what she was expecting when she finds out the musician she kissed once attended the same college and his girlfriend was a psycho freak that made her life miserable. 

Diesel was a jerk from the first time he met Mercedes.  He had made a mistake in the past that cost someone’s life; he felt miserable and responsible for it that he basically shot down to the world.  He never smile and just went along with life putting up with the bully of girlfriend he had because it worked for him.  He was the most popular boy at college and no one messed with him until Mercedes.  She came crashing his life he was so annoyed at least that’s what he made her believed.  In reality he didn’t want to hurt her but by being basically a jerk and letting his girlfriend bullied her he was hurting her.  All Diesel wanted was to play his music and didn’t want to be in the MC business as he was destined for.

“I’m dark it’s in my soul.  You’re light: I saw it the first time I met you.  You’re the kind of light that can fix my dark, but I can’t let that happen.”

Mer was not afraid though she had claws and she defended herself just find against bulling until it got so bad her roommate got hurt.  She knew that she couldn’t deal.  At this time she had managed to stalked Diesel and finally befriended him.  They definitely had a chemistry; she made him laugh and that’s something he hadn’t been able to do for a while.  

2016-06-4--01-04-20.png

This book was such a fast read; enjoyable.  I really liked it.  I wanted to love it as much as I did Pandemonium but it was missing a little more action maybe I can’t really explain.  I still enjoyed the fact that I was able to see both clubs families and kids and I loved them.  I think these two worked perfect for each other.  Mer was exactly what Diesel needed and they together were perfect.  Shit went crazy really fast when someone was trying to get both clubs to fight against each other but in the midst of all both clubs were able to work together and figure it by doing so all the generations were able to stay in touch and I loved seeing all of them together.

“His presence, his projection of self-assurance and command that makes me feel disoriented, breathless, and really fucking weird deep in my core.” Ivory

Ivory’s life situation will have you hurting so much it will pain you deep so deep i am still hurting to know how strong she was even thought she was given a horrible reality of life. She had no friends, no family to care for her only her cat and her dream to make her father proud to be the best pianist there is. The lights, the music, to be in stage was her dream.

Emeric became obsessed and possessive of Ivory from the first day he saw her. He knew he had to stay away but she was different like anything he had ever seen. Emeric felt the need to be his protector and damn can I say how much I love that man. I mean he went above and beyond to take care of her to help her heal and set her free from her nightmares. I freaking have no word of how much I love this man.

“She’s made for me, to be instructed and punished and enjoyed…Fuck, I need this girl. And I can’t have her.” Emeric

BLURB

They call me a slut. Maybe I am.
Sometimes I do things I despise.
Sometimes men take without asking.

But I have a musical gift, only a year left of high school, and a plan.
With one obstacle.

Emeric Marceaux doesn’t just take.
He seizes my will power and bangs it like a dark note.
When he commands me to play, I want to give him everything.
I kneel for his punishments, tremble for his touch, and risk it all for our stolen moments.

He’s my obsession, my master, my music.
And my teacher.

“We were both broken in different ways by those we trusted.  But it’s what brought
us together…Kilter was my beautiful Tyrant.”
cover
description
Tyrant is the second installment of the Scar’s series and it must be read in order.  I was in love with the scars since I read the standalone TAKE.
Kilter felt so wrong leaving Rayne behind something he had never felt before.  He didn’t know why but he knew he had to do go back and safe her from this place of torture; a place that was used to experiment on the Scars.  Kilter takes off and decides to rescue Rayne from her hell without notifying any of the Scars.  When he finds her; he thought he was done, a simple task, get her out of her inferno and free her.  Little did he know that she was a damaged good.  Rayne was dying she was slowly killing herself by letting her body shut down by not eating. She found her only control on not eating; that was the only way her brain was able to feel any control after being trapped for so long and used as an experiment as a weapon.

Kilter was bound to save Rayne from herself but he found that he was powerless something he couldn’t handle.  Rayne had a severe level of anorexia if she didn’t seek help she most likely die.  There was a battle between Kilter and the Scars; they wanted to hospitalized her but he refused to lock her up he knew she will not survive and he promised her that he wouldn’t let them do that to her.  However; he ended up getting himself put away for six months for losing control.  I was devastated but it did ended up working for the best.  The scars realized he was right and decided to give Rayne a break keeping her monitored on her own with a special doctor who helped her fight her fears and get better.

Rayne was able to get better and in the process she was able to help Kilter become a better person himself. He was betrayed; his past was so painful and he had no trust for anyone not even the Scars.  In his mind they all betrayed him.  However; Rayne was able to put peace inside of him and helped him healed.  She wanted to rescued him from his pain the same way he had done for her.  Their love was absolutely fantastic.  I enjoyed it so much it was just so beautiful.
description

“I’d never felt anything so intense as the desire swirled through every part of my body. Overpowering. Electrifying. And terrifying because I melted into him and there wasn’t a piece of me that didn’t want more of him.”

description

There was so much suspense and surprises when you get closer to the end I was a nervous wreck.  We had couple of side stories as well; there was a battle of the crazies with Walderon and Delara oh boy their intensity was so much I was going out of my mind for these two.  I want them to be happy so bad that I was full of anxiety I am dying for their book which is the next one in the series.  We also see Damien and Abby’s story it’s so painful to watch everything they go thru but I loved it all everything about this book and these couples.  If you are looking for a sexy, action packed paranormal book you have found it.  This book, this series has it all and it’s amazing one that you won’t forget easily.  To all my paranormal lovers read this you will not regret it.

Tyrant (Scars of Wraths) Book Two
Excerpt

Picture

I sat on the cold cement floor of the bathroom, knees to my chest, arms tight around them as I waited for the door to open.
Booted steps strode through my adjoining bedroom toward me.
Closer. Louder.
Goose bumps scattered. My body trembled as raw fear gripped me. It was like I was hanging off the side of a cliff by my fingernails, knowing I’d eventually fall and the pain would come.
Unbearable pain.
He’d come. My husband or whoever he’d sent to get me.
There was no escape. No where to run.
The heavy thuds stopped outside the bathroom door, and I glimpsed the tall, dark shadow that filtered through the two-inch gape.
I put my chin on my knee and closed my eyes, afraid to look. If I didn’t look, then no one was here. My breath came in short, sharp, quiet gasps and I dug my fingers into the sides of my thighs so hard, blood trickled down my skin through my pants.
For almost a month, I’d expected this day to come, stomach churning every time I heard someone in the corridor outside my bedroom. Living in a black hole, I was desperate to get out, but knew the day I did, it was to face punishment for helping the Scars escape the compound.
The door pushed open with what sounded like a kick of a boot.
Tears pooled in my eyes and spilled down my cheeks. I squeezed my eyes shut harder as fear drilled into me like tiny darts piercing my skin.
Another step.
Then another.
Then nothing.
Please don’t let it be Ben. Anyone but Ben.
“Fuck, babe. What the hell?”
My breath hitched at the sound of the familiar, deep voice. A voice I’d never forget. A voice that gave me hope then snatched it away with his lies.
I raised my head and locked eyes on the Scar I’d helped escape.
Well, more like he used me in order to help him and his friend escape.
He was also the man who had haunted my dreams for weeks since then. And they were haunting because he was scary. Not ugly scary, far from it, but intense scary.
He had a chiseled jaw with a few days of scruff and defined cheekbones. His look was old-world, which made sense since the Scars were immortal, but he definitely wasn’t an old-world English gentleman. More like a Highland Scot.
A long, jagged scar dragged from his right brow to his ear and another across his neck, which attributed to the scary factor. But that wasn’t what did it—that gave him character, it gave him a story.
It was his eyes that really intimidated, black and cold without a hint of compassion. And after spending a night in an air duct with him, I knew, compassion was not part of his disposition.
Actually, he’d been an asshole and didn’t try to hide it.
“Get up.”
I didn’t move.
I didn’t know what to do. He’d used me before, so I guessed he was here to use me again, although the reason was unclear because my husband didn’t have any Scars in his compound for this guy to break out.
“Babe, don’t have time for this shit. Get the fuck up.” He didn’t wait for me to get up, but bent, grabbed my forearm, and hauled me to my feet with a rough yank. I landed against him, my palms on his chest.
I quickly shoved back, but his hand remained locked on my forearm, and he didn’t allow me further than arm’s length. Staring, he performed a quick assessment, his dark eyes narrowing and trailing down the front of me.
“You look like shit. Worse, actually.” With the calloused pad of his thumb, he haphazardly wiped the tears from my cheeks.
I had no response. I was confused as to why he was here and how he managed to get into the basement and find me without the alarms blaring.
He cupped my chin. “You hurt?”
Not really, but I was an emotional wreck. Did that count?
“You need to answer me when I ask you a question.”
He was right, I did, and not because he told me to, but because there was a sliver of hope. I always had it. Most of the time, it was buried deep, but when my eyes hit the Scar… it surfaced whether I wanted it to or not.
So, that hope was him, and pissing him off was going to kill it.
“No,” I said. He frowned. “I’m not hurt.” Then I had a moment of bravery that came with the hope. “Ummm, why are you here?”
“Isn’t it obvious?”
Not really. But the answer wasn’t important, because he’d lied to me before, so no matter what he said, it was highly probable it was complete bullshit. And so was my hope.
His jaw clenched and his eyes narrowed; yet his hand on my chin was soft and gentle. “Do I need to fuckin’ carry you?”
What was he talking about? “Carry me? Carry me where?”
His lips pursed together as he glared at me with black, unforgiving eyes. “Listen, babe, I don’t feel like becoming some guy’s lab rat, so I need you to pull your shit together, answer my questions, stop asking them, and maybe we’ll get out of here alive.”
Get out of here? The hope plowed back into me, but I was afraid to grab onto it because I didn’t dare believe the Scar had come back to get me out of here. Why would he?
But there was something different in him than three weeks ago. Maybe it was the way he gently wiped my tears away or how he held me right now, his fingers no longer bruising, but holding me steady as if he knew I needed the support.
He was tall, probably six foot two, and I’d noticed when I was against his chest that my head tucked under his chin. I also noticed, beneath his black T-shirt, he was rock-hard with ridges and valleys of muscles.
His hand moved to the back of my neck. It wasn’t exactly gentle, but more like he was attempting to get my attention. He already had it, but I was still confused.
“You want to get out of this pisshole? ‘Cause if you don’t, tell me now so I can leave you here and get the fuck out.”
I tried to lower my head, but his grip on the back of my neck tightened and I was forced to meet his eyes. “I hate him.” Why did I say that? I mean, I did, but he didn’t ask me that.
His brows drew together and his grip on my neck tightened. “Yeah, I got that, babe.”
Logically, I should be terrified of him, yet I wasn’t. It was more nervousness than anything.
There was a hint of something I recognized in his eyes that was oddly comforting. And I recognized it because it was the same look I saw in myself; the haunting tornado of emotions trapped behind a wall.
Our walls were very different, though. His wall was a shield of anger. Mine was a shield of numbness.
He let me go, eyes scanning the bathroom before grabbing my sweatshirt hanging on a hook on the wall. “Arms up.” I did and he pulled it over my head. “It’s cold and you don’t have an ounce of fat on you,” he said while his gaze traveled the length of my body. “Jesus, you look like you’ll break in a gust of wind.” He swore beneath his breath and shook his head. “You good to run?”
My legs felt like uncooked spaghetti ready to crack in half at the slightest push and my heart beat erratically, having to work hard to keep my body functioning. I was falling apart, so probably the truth would be a hell no, but I nodded anyway.
He hesitated then nodded, as if satisfied that, regardless of my lie, he thought I’d be able to at least keep up.
He grabbed my hand and pulled me from the bathroom, through the bedroom, to the door.
He pulled a knife from a leather sheath at his hip and opened the door, peering out before looking back at me. “Keep close. Lag behind and I’m not coming back for you. Understand?”
I nodded.
I didn’t trust him, but I did know he would leave me because he’d done it before.
The fight inside me had died years ago, as had the ability to trust anyone. I had trusted. I had fought. Neither had done me any good. So now I trusted myself, and that meant killing parts of who I was.
It meant protecting me.
Burying me.
“Babe?”
I snapped my eyes to his. For a second, I thought his eyes softened, but it was more wishful thinking on my part. He was probably thinking he’d just made the stupidest mistake of his life by coming back here. Escaping my husband’s compound twice had a high probability of failure.
His fingers curled around my fragile hand, squeezed, then tugged me forward. “Let’s get the fuck out of this shithole.”

Tyrant, Scars of Wraths, Paranormal Romance, Nashoda Rose

Book Summary & Purchase link

New York Times & USA Today Best Selling Author Nashoda Rose brings a fresh twist to the paranormal romance world with ‘the Scars’.

“I don’t do nice. Period.” -Kilter (nickname: Off-Kilter)

Kilter is crass, reckless and stubborn. He has alienated everyone—just the way he likes it. Until the day he meets Rayne and emotions he buried long ago reawaken.

“I was nothing but a science experiment.” -Rayne

Rayne has been locked away and used for research ever since she was a child. The abuse caused her to withdraw into a tomb of numbness where she’s found a safe place to hide. But her safe place isn’t safe at all, it’s slowly killing her.
When Kilter rescues her and she is unexpectedly drawn to his raw honesty, Rayne must decide whether to trust him and fight for what she can’t see or drown into the depths of darkness.

For some Scars, it’s the story of healing and redemption, for others it’s the beginning of a tortured existence. Which will it be for Kilter and Rayne?

A band of fierce warriors walk in the shadows of the human world with capabilities derived from the senses: Trackers, Sounders, Healers, Tasters, Visionaries and the rare Reflectors. They are known as the ‘Scars.

“Life is what it is. You can’t escape it…You love a sinner. If anything, that makes you a saint.” 
 description
Target On Our Backs picks up a year after the second book. Ignazio Vitale aka Naz; is now married happily with the girl who stole his heart; the girl that he was supposed to kill. Naz now at age thirty-eight and Karissa Vitale at only twenty are trying to live a new life away from Naz’s past. However; life isn’t always easy for these two.
“Out only means I can sit on the sidelines, waiting until I get called back into the game. And they’ve been calling for me, pretty incessantly, both teams. So I’m out, yeah, which means I’m reluctantly still in.” Naz

description

Karissa finds herself struggling to move on; she is confused. She knows she loves Naz and would do anything for him but she is also scared that she will lose him because even though she knows he is out for good from his old life there is still someone always trying to hurt them. Karissa attempts to continue her normal life going back to school with her best friend Melody. She still has her dog and it’s hilarious to see Naz and her together because she always tease him for being older than her and he is trying to do anything to keep her happy.
“Naz is the kind of guy that, once he walks into your world, he throws it off its axis, so even if he backs out, nothing spins the same anymore. I love him…with every fiber of my being.” Karissa

description

Ignazio is out from the world he knew however he also knew everyone wanted him back and he will do anything to stay away and protect Karissa is his ultimate goal. Naz wants to please his wife there is nothing he won’t do for her he even puts up with her music addiction and her habits of eating ramen noodles. Their relationship is sexy, funny and amazing. I found myself fanning myself, giggling so much at these two. I loved everything about them.
“He fuck me like he’s sprinting towards a finish line, the bang-bang-bang of my body hitting the counter amplified in the otherwise silent house. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.”

“If my wife gets hurt in any way, I’ll kill you, and I can promise it won’t be merciful.”

There is so much action on this book, everyone wants Naz on their side and won’t stop until they achieve it. However; no one messes with Naz and the minute they touched Karissa all hell broke loose. Naz was out for blood and was bound to stop anyone who gets on his way. The events on this book had me nervous, excited, and I loved the action and suspense. The author was able to give us a well combine story with everything a reader could hope for. We got a couple that their love was put to test to see if it would survive all the obstacles and targets on their backs. We have action, suspense, and we got sexy and funny parts that had me just wishing this books wasn’t over. This book was everything, loves it hard and I would recommended to all my mafia lovers.

She spent six months living in the streets but the very first day on her own she meets Yoss; the boy who became her guardian Angel who became everything to her.

description

Yoss and Imi’s relationship was just incredible however the friendship, love, family that they found on each other was breath taking. Yoss would do things he hated himself for to protect Imi and the gang I loved them all. Each and every one had a story to tell but it was hard to see everything they went thru on a daily basis. Really makes you think about real life and how fortunate some of us are to have a family that really love and care for us.

descriptiondescription

Yoss wanted what was best for Imi so she let her go; he made her believe that they would both run away and start elsewhere but he knew that she loved him as much as he loved her and that will only bring her down. She had a mother; yeah a selfish mother but she had a family she could go back to and try to be happy. He on the other hand had nothing; no one and knew deep inside that no matter how much he wanted to be with her the only way to keep her safe was to let her go.

Imi loved this boy so much that she would have stayed and starved to death if it meant staying together but when he left her she knew she had to move on. She tried; she truly tried to be a wife but failed miserable she had a hard time giving up on her first teenager love. So when life puts her back in front of Yoss fifteen years later she realized that one day; that maybe that one day soon might just have finally come.

 

“Once upon a time there was a sad, lonely boy who was actually a forgotten prince. No one knew that he was rich and powerful and had a family that was searching for him.”



“One day he met a girl who swore that she would help him get back home to the castle. They fell in love. The prince wanted her to come back to the castle with him so they could live there together.”

This book was an emotional roller coaster; it was breath taking; it was full of feels. I felt so much more than just another story because it touches your deep in the heart deep inside. You will not look at things the same after you read this. I feel like this has made it to my top favorites book of all times; this is truly the most amazing story I have ever read and it deserves all the praise in the world. I will recommend this book to everyone looking for an EPIC story about love, life, sacrifices, family and friendship. An Incredible & Unforgettable Read.

I stayed with him through darkness and fire.

We loved each other in the moment between innocence and bitter truth.

We were the kids easily ignored, who grew into adults we hardly knew.

We weren’t meant to last forever. And we didn’t.

He ran away.

I tried to move on.

Yet I never stopped thinking about the boy who had fought to keep me alive in a world that would have swallowed me whole. He was the past that I buried, but never forgot.

Until the day I found him again, years after believing I had lost him forever.

And in cold, resentful eyes, I saw the heart of the man who had been everything when I had nothing at all. So I vowed to hold onto the second chance that was stolen from the children we had been.

Sometimes fate is ugly. Life can be twisted.

And who we are can be ruined by who we once were.

For two people who had survived so much, we would have to learn how to hold on before we were forced to let go.

“Sometimes the thing we fear more than anything, is really what our soul craves the most.” Justin

descriptiondescription

Amelia Payne as a teacher had the summer off and after her grandmother’s death she inherited her home on the island where she was raised when she was a child. Amelia had always being very insecure and because of it she made a harsh choice when she was only fifteen years old. She trusted her best friend Justin they were both inseparable but somehow she felt betrayed that he had kept a secret from her and ran away to her father’s home instead of dealing with her problems. That caused her the lost for her best friend and her young love Justin. The friend she had fallen in love with but was so afraid to acknowledge it.

Justin Banks was upset and angry at how Amelia left and tried to move on with his life; a life without her. He was cocky bad boy and he knew it. He had every girl melting for him and it was not shocking he wrote and sang songs as part time; when he comes back to the island for the summer to the house Amelia’s grandmother had “randomly” left him part of it he comes with his smoking hot new girlfriend. Of course he never admitted or told Amelia he too had fallen in love with her when they were younger but he left that in the past; so he thought. Destiny had a new future for the both of them thought and now they found themselves again after so long.

I found myself very frustrated at some points of this book thought because I really like strong heroines and Amelia kept failing at being strong. Her insecurities were killing me; I enjoy cocky males as well but not knowing Justin’s thoughts I couldn’t really see him like truly see him either. After their first chaotic summers together were they both spent it ignoring each other or fighting, life was not easy for Amelia. After Justin left the summer house even though they hadn’t really re connected she still had hopes. Justin went back to his perfect life with his perfect girlfriend in New York. Her world came crashing back at her when she finds out she is pregnant from her ex boyfriend and she had to deal with it on her own until Justin returns back to the summer house the following year; no matter what her ex doesn’t want anything to do with her baby girl Bea.

“It’s no longer going to be hard for you to resist me. You won’t want anything to do with me. Your biggest nightmare…just became my reality, Justin.” Amelia

Justin’s most fears were to be a father since he had terrible parents he didn’t trust in himself to be an example and a good father; he finds himself conflicted with emotions after seeing Amelia the previews summer and seeing her again struggling on her own with child; all he wants to do was help and be there for her. However he was also so confusing; I was a mad woman wanting these two to finally get their act together and grow up because they truly did worked fine together. The last part of this book was my favorite; it was just amazing these two ended up spending much time together learning from each to her and helping each other. It was beautiful to see them finally grow up; this beautiful baby grew thought them how to love each other and be true to themselves. I truly enjoyed Justin and Amelia finally realizing that grandma was always right they were both meant for each other. The way they both learned how to deal with their insecurities and the way they both grew up as a person and as a couple was fantastic.

“All that time I spent mad at you…I could have been fucking you. What a dumbass” Justin

This was my very first book by Penelope Ward and I will say it will not be my last one. I enjoyed and devour this in one setting. The story is written from the female’s pov I actually would have loved it a lot better if it would of being written from both female and male’s point of view so I could get a feel of what he was thinking as well; none the less this was a very fast and enjoyable read.

BLURB

Trapper Montgomery
His darkness drew me in.
A mystery with a past I wanted to solve.
He was cold, like ice, but set me on fire.
A heat I hadn’t felt in ages.
But when I saw his face, I burned…
In mourning
Again.

Brea Bradley
She melted from my voice–shuddered from my touch.
But trembled from the memories
That my face brought back.
She wanted more…
Maybe even him.
I wasn’t the hand she counted on.
But I was what she was dealt…
A Wild Ace with no way to win.

“Without her, for the first time in my entire life, I was truly trapped in the solitude of my mind-alone”

description description

Fighting Solitude is the final installment from On The Ropes Series even though you can read as a standalone I personally would recommend reading book one first. I went in blinded into this book popping my Aly’s cherry, and oh boy was in for a surprise. I enjoyed this book so much, and now I really wished I would have read the first two books first, however, have no doubt that even without reading the other two you will fully enjoy this story because it very detailed and it was such a wonderful story.

Quarry page is the younger brother of three; at only ten years old he meets his best friend who becomes the love of his life. He didn’t know that yet thought it took a long time for him to realize that his soulmate has always been there.Quarry grew up fighting following his older brother’s footsteps. He, however, managed to become famous and accomplished so much than he could ever hope for. One tragedy after another leaves him hopeless, and he gives up on love. His heart is so hurt that he becomes numb to feelings when his girlfriend passed away at only nineteen years of age he don’t want any real relationship with anyone; that didn’t mean he didn’t messed around because a man has his needs but he never got involved again.

Liv James at only nine years old meets Quarry when some boys were trying to mess with her. Quarry came to her rescue, and she instantly liked him and knew there was something different about him. They became best friend almost inseparable. Her father was the owner of the security company that worked for Quarry’s family, and he traveled with Quarry a lot for the fights as body guards and she more often than not tagged along to see Quarry. Their entire relationship was freaking awesome I loved how they teased each other and played jokes on their family. I loved how she could read him so well and how he could understand her as well. Liv’s mother was a junkie and had passed away when she was only five years old. At an early age, she was traumatized of the silence, and she always had to have music with her everywhere she went, or she would have panic attacks.

description

“Liv rocked my entire world the moment I met her. There was something about the mischievous glint in her big, brown doe eyes that spoke to me on a level a ten-year-old couldn’t even begin to understand.” Quarry

description

“If it happens to you, then I have to deal with it too. You watch my back, and I watch yours. It’s the most important rule of being best friends.” Liv

Quarry and Liv’s friendship relationship was epic until it wasn’t; one bad choice changed everything and they were separated for a long time. Three long years that I was feeling sick because I really was shooting for them. So much happened after Liv came back to Quarry’s life; their friendship started again but, this time, was different Liv knew she had to protect her heart she couldn’t let him in. They had one mutual best friend that kept them from being together. The ghost of her best friend and Quarry’s ex-girlfriend hunted her and she wouldn’t let him in even after a year of her death and even after both living in the same apartment. I was a bit infuriated at the both of them because seriously they were just so perfect for each other and what was left in the past it was that just the past. They finally opened up and gave into their feeling and oh boy I was so happy for them.

description

I truly enjoyed this story thought there was some struggles, a fighter always has threads, and they both fight though it all and made it and became stronger together. Liv’s life was put at risk twice, and it was a very suspenseful time. Also, Quarry inherited the family illness of losing his hearing and it was devastated for everyone. I loved how this author made you feel for both of these characters and their entire families. How everyone got a long and fought together as family. I recommend this book to anyone looking for a good fighter book. This book was about love, friends, and family and about learning how to fight the solitude of silence.

“Obsession is strange. One moment you think you have control. And by the time you realize that you’ve lost your free will, you don’t even care.”


description

Unnatural Deeds by Cyn Balog caught my attention by its cover and blurb; however little did I know that this author’s writing style was going to consumed me and I ended up enjoying it a little too much than I expected. The book starts with a young girl Victoria Zell struggling at school and desperately trying to fit in. She is loyal to her best friend aka boyfriend and neighbor Andrew who is home-schooled. Everything she does she wants him to know because her loyalty and love to him is always first.

Zachary Zimmerman is a cool boy who becomes interested on Victoria. They become friends and soon he wants to be more to her than just friends. She is obviously confused because she doesn’t want to ruin the love and trust she has with Andrew. Zach seems to understand her dilemma and I found myself unable to stop reading this roller-coaster ride.

“The idea of helping him, of basking in his gratitude…Even then, I craved his adoration like a drug. I don’t know when it became something I’d betray you for, Andrew.”


Victoria blames herself for not being there enough for Andrew when he needed her the most. Now she is falling away from him because she seems to be getting so close to Zachary and that thought scares her so much. He makes her feel things she hadn’t felt in a long time and she just wants more but at the same time she doesn’t.

“Trust can be repaired and regained, but I think sometimes it gets so beaten from you that it shatters into a zillion pieces. Then it becomes nothing more than a word.”


This author brings out a book that has an ending that readers won’t see coming; oh boy was I shocked and speechless at the end of the book?! Heck YES!! And triple YES; in fact I still can’t even believe what the hell did I read??!!! I wished I would have read this with a friend so I could have someone to chat about this MIND BLOWING ENDING and twisted/wicked book. My mind was racing with million ways to describe how I felt but nothing; I mean nothing prepared me for this ride and revelation.

description

I think readers who don’t mind going outside your comfort zone should read this unique book and if you do please do find me so I can discuss it with someone; trust me this one will have you second guessing everything you thought it was real. haha

“He was wearing me down, making it harder to walk away. Every time he said something, did something, it drew me more and more into his web.”

Clara Hatton; conflicted with the new feeling and emotions she is feeling tries to deny what she is feeling for her student.  She understands very well the consequences of her actions and somehow finds herself in the bridge of losing it all her marriage, her father who she only recently re united with and her career all for what she believes is love.

“The boy created conflicting emotions in me, ones I didn’t know how to deal with.”

Dante Rata; so young and stubborn wants nothing more but to be loved truly love for who he is and not for his looks.  He believed Clara was different he can’t stop the feelings for her and he wants it so badly to be real.  Clara’s insecurities of what would happen to the both of them makes him angry and sad.  He doesn’t want to be a play toy one that woman just fantasies about he wants it to be true love but only with her.

“I wondered what it would be like to disappear like the smoke, leaving no trace behind. Here one second, gone the next.”

In this book we got to see new characters that I learned to really love and some that I didn’t care much for.  The story is very fast pace and pretty addicting.  However; I found myself getting so confused by so many things happening at once on the last thirty percent of the book.  I feel like I wasn’t able to focus trying to keep track of what was going on since there were at least three major things happening at once. I  could have loved it more if there wasn’t so much stuff happening.  Also, I really liked how finally Clara and Dante put everything on the line for each other even though the age is a big deal I felt Clara wanted to truly understand him and truly cared for him when no one did. One small issue I had was their sexual intensity happened so fast I felt a bit cheated I didn’t get the details about it when it actually happened.  I am hoping that we get more action on the next two books.

Shattered Poetry is not for everyone; is a story of a forbidden relationship.  It will test your boundaries and at points make you unconformable. The story is intense and readers who are not afraid to explore and experience lots of emotions would find this book appealing.

“If it’s worth the risk, then gamble because happiness can be fucking fleeting and forgiveness can be given and accepted easily without the burden of grudges.”

Isaac Fox; living life without any love commitments or attachments was a successful and well known photographer.  He knew exactly where he stood when it involved his sexual desires he was open minded and liked both females and males but he prefers the male team.  One night of lust became a night he never forgot with the one and only hot stuff fitness model Flynn.

 “He’s my every wet dream in the flesh. He’s also my every nightmare.”

teaserone-jpg-quote-1

Flynn Phillips; super smoking gorgeous man who was born to be famous got all his dreams come true when he landed in the fitness modeling industry.  Woman would throw themselves at him for his attention and he always complied until that one night he started feeling different things that he didn’t want to admit he liked a little too much. 

“I can’t even begin to understand it. This tangible link we have. It makes no sense; it’s stronger than attraction, and it messes with my head because he’s a man.”

I loved Isaac from the beginning I first met him on one of the previews books from the standalone series. I didn’t know much about him but I was dying to know.  He was absolutely an incredible person who loved his family so much; he even sacrificed an entire year of his career to help the family out.  It was such an emotional part of the book that I don’t want to give anything away.  He struggled with being understood though and what Flynn did and how he made him feel had me in angry tears.  I wanted Flynn to feel his pain and boy did he felt it too?! Heck yeah. 

teaser2forone-jpg-quote2

This book was about love, family and finding out your own true self.  It was such a wonderful read to understand the struggle people go thru to find themselves and within understand that what they feel don’t have to be always what people think but what you want.  Flynn and Isaac both were tested thru their boundaries to reach the true love they were both searching for. In all honestly this was my very first only m/m read and I have to say I had to fan myself so much it wasn’t even funny.  I am afraid this would not be my last either.  Readers to enjoy a good love story, super steamy hot, and are not afraid of this m/m genre should totally read this book.  I found myself unable to put it down and enjoyed every minute of it.

“Love isn’t one plus one. It’s one plus one plus one times infinity.”

“Love is a savage beast trapped within me, thickening, and savoring its desire laid out before it.”

Jade Phillip find herself in the same place as eight years ago; it was like dejavu all over again; Only this time she was smarter and stronger and she was bound to take his capture down.  The nightmares of her past keeps hunting her though and regret of leaving her sister behind blinds her to see clear what really is happening.  

teaser1-jpg-quote1

Benny; oh boy what can I say about him.  I found myself conflicted; hoping to save him while in my mind I already knew it wouldn’t happen but I could just hope for the best.  His mind was so messed up; his childhood ugh I just can’t even think straight thinking about what he had to endure and made him the way he was.  I wanted justice for him but at the same time I wanted him to pay.  The emotional roller-coaster that this book delivers is incredible.

“Normal is like beauty-all in the eye of the beholder.”

This second and last installment of the series was fantastic. I loved reading different POV’s; I felt it gave readers an inside of what was happening in their minds and it took this reading journey to a new level of awesomeness.

This book is again full of suspense and is very intense, I love that obviously.  I did was hoping there were more twists though; however I found this was more of a thriller than a mystery as I found myself guessing some of the clues.  That still didn’t stop me from enjoying this ride.  The way the authors pulled this book together till the end was fantastic.  And as far as the ending goes (no comment) because I truly thought it was genius.  Would Benny find his way to Jane’s heart? Would Jane’s sister finds herself back again or is she truly lost? Would Jane be free of this nightmare and find her HEA? So many questions but look no more this books has all the answers OK most of the answers.  If you enjoyed the thrilled of a broken lost man looking for his broken doll you will find this book appealing and will enjoy the ride as much as I did.

“Our eyes locked and I think, in a way, they’ve never left.”

Laney moved to a different town with her dad after her mother basically destroyed the marriage. She was selfish and I don’t’ even want to get here for now. When Laney comes to the new town she meets her father’s new boss and his family. There she falls in love with her best friend who will be with her for a fun journey.

Lucas Preston has a big family one sister and his brothers. His parents were incredible specially his mom; she was amazing to them all. When Laney and her father first came to his house he was little but since the first day he became her best friend. I loved how his brother’s would tease him about her.

Lucas and Laney’s relationship progressed thru the high school years and they were just best friends. She always knew she was in love with him and Lucas did too but both were young and stupid to realize it so they were dated other people and lived like their feeling for each other never existed. When they finally gave into having a relationship; it was bad timing and I was devastated. Laney felt betrayed after she gave him everything that she found someone else and so her new boyfriend took most of her time.

“Ultimately, that’s what true love is, you know? To want to be someone’s hero when they’re faced with villains. To want to be the one who saves them. To be their wonderwall.”

Bad things happens to Laney and none of the Preston brothers realized or her father she was so ashamed she couldn’t opened up to anyone until it was too late. It was so painful to see how much Lucas blamed himself for everything but Laney couldn’t have predicted all the events that happened. It really was not anyone’s fault sometimes life finds you in the worse ways possible and you need to learn to fight back and get out of bad relationships.

This book was truly incredible because I adored all the characters the Preston; Lucy, Lucas, Leo, Logan, Lincoln, Liam and Lachlan. The author really put a well written book about love, life, family, struggles and consequences. It truly was so good. Now I wished I would have read the previews books because I want to know more about the rest of the boys and the sister which I thought was a hilarious character on this book.

“I’ve never stopped looking at you, looking to you, and I don’t want to stop. Not now. Not ever. And I need to see your eyes and I need to hear your laugh and I need you. I need to love you. And I need to love you right.”

“He was the anchor keeping me steady.”

This book picks up right where book one left off.  Pim and Elder’s journey continues with a healing process.  The aftermath of the events on book one left Elder confused and conflicted.  He didn’t know what to do with his feeling; something he had tried to avoid at any cost until her.  Pim wakes up to a new surrounding and she doesn’t know if she is dreaming or if she woke up to a different new horror.  So she does what she knows best she blocks everything and acts like the only way she has learned to survive few years ago.

“I hated that I accepted his rage so much more easily than I ever could his kindness.  That I went searching for his animosity because I would never trust his calmness.” 

For the time being she tries to adjust but this feels so good to be true and she cannot adjust to it somehow she feels like it’s a trick.  Her mind is playing tricks on her and she is struggling to survive this new life.  Pim battles a lot internally and I feel is a healing process for her. However; I felt like the book has so many repetitions that it left me feeling a bit bored at times.  I understand Pim went through so much and as much as I wanted to absolutely love this book it was honestly hard for me to finish.

“You pushed and pushed, and I can’t fucking take it anymore.”

Elder is trying to help her but finds himself backed into a corner himself; with all his demons which I still am dying to know his dark secrets he is conflicted with this new situation his life has become.  This installment was not as dark as I was expecting, I felt it was needed of course; I am sure the author has some wicked twisted thoughts coming up on the next three installments and in order to continue this ride this book had to be written this way.  I am intrigued of what is coming next.

“He was my savior and captor. He was so, so much more. And it hurt because I wanted to know how deep that more went.”

“She is the most fascinating person I’ve ever known, and for the first time in my existence, I’ve met someone who makes me want to give away everything.”


description

Shyann Jennings originally from a small town; after the death of her mother she moved out as far away from her family and town as she could. She was chasing her big dreams of being a TV reporter. However; after a big fall out she found herself back to the place she had run away from.

Lucas was shy, cute, and talented. After a traumatize childhood he was never the same. He moved from town to town; he couldn’t stay in the same place for too long. He finally found a town he could call home; found a good job and even meets a gorgeous girl who he fell madly in love with.

“I want her to like me. I want her to see me as brave. I want to know what it’s like to be normal.”

Shy and Lucas has an insta connection when they first meet. Shy didn’t know why she was feeling this magnetic pull towards Lucas but he felt it too. I liked how she felt protective of him and did everything to figure him out when no one cared.

“There’s something about him that’s impossible to walk away from. Like an injured boy being held captive by his abuser.”

I really enjoyed this book, not exactly what I was expecting. I didn’t found a lot of suspense or darkness but I did had feels for Lucas I liked that he found his other half in Shy. The story didn’t really have any twists like I was expecting but I enjoyed it none the less.

Readers looking for a second chance romance will really enjoy this book.

This was definitely one of those books where you open it and you just can’t put it down…you try to sleep but you can’t stop thinking about what is going to happen next, You try to guess who the bloody killer is and finally you reached the end and you can breathe again without even realizing you were holding your breath the entire time. At the beginning it was a bit slow start for me with so many characters POV to keep track of; however soon I got to know each character and I wanted more of them.

We meet Amy Stephenson who at only 15 years old had a secret and that secret will hunt the entire world. She left school one day and never made it home. Now 15 years later she finds herself in a hospital and with no recollection of what had happened in past. Her mind is still of a 15yr old inside a body of a 30yrs old in a bed with no ability to speak of feel or move. However; in her head she is still in high school with her boyfriend Jake and her best friends Jenny and Becky and there are still signs of movements in her brain.

descriptiondescription

Alex Dale; a thirty year old female journalist who was dealing with life crisis. She lost her mother, her child, her job and lastly; her husband left her due to her alcohol addiction. Alex was writing a profile piece for a weekend supplement on the work of Dr. Haynes, a scientist researching brain scans that picked up signs of communication in patients. She came across Amy while at the hospital interviewing Dr. Haynes and took a deeply interest in her case and she just wanted to know more about her.

“Once we establish a number of different parts of the brain and how to generate a response in those, we can start to ask question and…”


descriptiondescription

Jacob aka Jake who was Amy’s boyfriend fifteen years ago; was struggling with the past and with his wife and soon to be child. He wanted a happy life but keeping things from his wife Fiaona was almost causing him his marriage. However; he meets Alex and he knew it was a dangerous line considering his marriage was on the line but he wanted to help Alex find answers to what really happened to Amy. He joined the journey with Alex to finding answers as to what happened to Amy and try to get to the bottom of it.

description

Alex developed an obsession to figure this case out and she didn’t stop until she got to the bottom of it. However her addiction was going to be the end of her; she was struggling with the alcohol addiction that will kill her in a year if she didn’t stop. This book had me intrigued and I was deeply interested not only because I wanted the mystery of the killer to be solved but I was also very intrigued on Amy’s brain case I found myself thinking what if that was me or someone I knew of laying on that bed for so long?!. Alex felt the same and while she got to the bottom and ended up cracking the case which was a total mind fuck she ended up finding herself as well because of Amy. I love this story so much, it was much more than what I expected.

There were many suspects, so many questions; the events that happened had me biting my nails. I wanted answers like Alex and Jacob; everyone seems a suspect and it was a nerve wrecking thrilling ride. This book is one I will recommend to all thriller readers. If you are looking for a good mystery/thriller you have found it. Any fans of Cold case files TV will really enjoy this book. This is a new author for me and I can tell you, I love this writing style and I will be reading more of this writer in the future.

“This is the part where you fun away, little girl.”

description

Dulcie Travers; the low class girl who lived in a trailer park loved to take pictures of the world “her world” and then she would draw what she saw through her lenses. Sometimes what she saw was not always flowers and roses but darkness. However; she was the girl at school that slipped around unnoticed; the quiet one, the odd girl. Dulcie liked it that way; no one to bother her or to see everything she could see.

Constantine aka “Con” Masters; the popular star football quarterback always knew he was different but he hide his darkness really good under his mask of popularity. Having his father as the small town mayor helped; and being hot and popular with the girls also helped. Until her…He saw her really saw her but he knew she wasn’t ready. Constantine knew though that they were both the same it was just a matter of time.

description

“Maybe, just maybe, their hidden pieces matched. Con very much wanted to see the real her.”


description

Dulcie accidentally bumps into Con while he was a senior and she was a junior in high school. She really sees him for what he was no one else did thought; it was like a secret that only both of them could see. She knew that she needed to stay far far away from him but something kept pulling her towards him. One night, one magic kiss made her feel so much for him. She couldn’t get those deep blue eyes from her thoughts; it hunted her.

“She wanted his darkness to swallow her whole. She wanted to be a part of it. She wanted to give her own darkness back to him.”


description

Constantine was one year older than her; he left the town after graduation and did not return after three years. Dulcie moved on; graduated and was so upset at Cons that he never came back for her; she thought for some reason that the feelings were mutual.

description

After three long years Con finally returns to town; so much happened while he was gone. Dulcie had moved away from her trailer park and on her own and even was dating. Con had plans for the both of them thought and that was why he stayed away for so long. He waited; he planed; he prepared. Con is now determined to win Dulcie back he knows she is upset with him but he also knows that what they have is unbreakable and he will have to show her and earn her trust. Would their love destroyed each other or would it conquer anything and everything?!

description

I literally devour this book in one setting; it was a total page turner. All the events that occurred when Con and Dulcie gave into each other will leave you double guessing everything you think you ever know about them. This book it’s an absolutely complete twisted ride full of surprises and craziness. It has a lot of dark elements which I personally did not mind but if you have hard limits I will recommend reading the blurb before picking this book up. I loved everything about this book and I cannot wait for everyone to read this book. To all my dark readers this book is for you and make sure to read the warning: this book contains graphic sex, extremely brutal violence, bad language, and people repeatedly and knowingly breaking the law.

Crazy woman living in an undisclosed location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about right.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.

“Everything happens for a reason. You’re my reason, Lucas Black.”

description

Pandemonium: Mainly focus and introduces us first to Ava one of the daughters of Jackson the Prez of the Sinner MC club. Ava is twenty-four year’s old living on her own trying to show her family she can actually be a grown up. Ava was spoiled by the club and of course Jackson; wanted to show them she could be independent and she didn’t need babysitting. One day she gets taken by a monster aka enemy of her father. He had taken her to send a message to her father; the enemy wanted to hurt the most precious and close thing to the Prez and he knew breaking Ava would work.

“How do you choose whose life is worth more? How do you decide that you’re worth more?” Ava

description

Lucas Black; at only thirty years of age is a broken man himself. He has a sad past but he focus on his job as a detective and hides under his work. He is professional, successful and super hot. Faith put him in front of Ava and he feels the need to protect her. He could see in her eyes the broken girl and he could see himself in her. However; he finds out that she is the daughter of the MC and he had history with them. He tries to stay away but when he find out how bad Ava was drowning he felt something towards her and what started as a protection became something else.

“I’ve seen the pain in your eyes in my own before, and I know how it fuckin’ feels.” Lucas


description

Ava distanced herself from her family a bit after she was rescued from that horrible experience. She did not wanted her father to hurt because of what she saw; of what she went thru. Ava finds herself on a road to self destruction and no one even noticed except Lucas. He knew too well her dept. of depression and as much as he didn’t want to be involved he just became involved because Ava found on him something she didn’t found on anyone else. She saw a man that was broken as she was and she knew he was the only one who could understand her at the same time she wanted to safe him.

Lucas and Ava somehow managed to find hope on each other and they give into their new feelings for each other. Lucas was extremely protective and smoking hot; he made Ava melt in his arms and I was drooling over him.

descriptiondescription

Secrets comes out, there was a big battle between Jackson and Lucas because MC and Cops defiantly don’t get along. However; after the club found out everything they really had no choice but to accept Lucas help specially after Ava was abducted once again and this time would she escape?!. The original sinners are just amazing and Lucas was definable one hot detective. All the sinner’s kids were just so funny I just loved how much they all love each other and teased each other; seeing the parents and all their now grown children made me so happy. I laughed so much, this book was packed with so much action, suspense, and it was written from both Ava and Lucas point of view. I just can’t wait to read the rest of the children’s stories because trust me there is so much I want to know about them specially Danny and Skye.

“Sometime the greatest heartache makes the strongest people.” Ava


descriptiondescription

This book can be read as a standalone, but if you haven’t read the original MC Sinner I highly encourage you to do so because they are so good and all of them are on this book and I loved them all. We see Jackson (the prez) his wife, Cade and Addison, Spike and Ciara, even Muff so yeah you must meet them. I recommend this book all my MC lovers, if you are looking for a book full of angst, funny, action packed and steamy sexy scenes this book is for you.

”Peace wasn’t about avoiding things. It was about making the choice to live life with all it’s chaos around you, and in the midst of it all, having calm in your heart.”


description

I saw this hot cover and the author’s name and I didn’t even have to think twice or even read the blurb to know I will love it and I was right I am totally fangirling. Little did I know that cocky Brody was going to be my next new book boyfriend. Damn do I want to have his babies?! Hell to the yes! Haha. This book was funny as hell, hot and sexy, and just pure awesomeness.

From beginning this book sucked me in with so much funny stuff I was giggling from the start. When Delilah Maddox a professional sportscaster had to have her first interview with all the football players specially the star Quarterback of the team Brody Easton; she tried to be cool and professional. Having her job as a female reporter was the highlight of her career and she wanted to do a good job but Brody made the first interview so intimidating he was hitting on her and it was just hilarious to watch these too.

”His lips curled up into a full-blown wicked smile. “Before I could catch myself, my eyes dropped to his naked lower half. Shit. He was dangling in the wind….”.


description

description

Delilah’s father was a famous quarterback like Brody and she knew the sport so well it was one of the things Brody loved about her and she caught his attention instantly; he wasn’t going to take no as an answer. He liked the way she looked and he wanted to have her. However; very soon he found out Delilah was not a one night stand kind of girl which is what I loved about her. Brody Easton was the best on his team and had a reputation with woman. He was just perfection in my eyes though because behind his, cocky, sarcastic ways, and obviously a hot ass athlete he was sweet and carrying. Delilah ends us spending a lot of time with Brody because of the football season and her career but the time she spent with him made her liked him not just as a player but as a person. She realized he was so much more than she could have imagined but she had a broken heart that she couldn’t sacrifice another breakout.

“I can do exclusive. Hell, the thought of you with anyone else makes me fucking insane…I’ll probably fuck up and piss you a lot, but I’d like to try.” Brody


description

Brody ‘s past left his heart hurt and damaged and he wasn’t letting anyone in either because of it but he also knew if he really wanted Delilah he had to open up. However his past comes out and I was a nervous wrecked; it was a bit angsty that had you worried how this was going to play out for these two. The chemistry between Brody and Delilah was undeniable thought and the sexy scenes were super HOT omg Brody was the best in every sense of the word. He spoon me off my feet and I am forever in love with this male. Brody messed with Delilah and it was just hilarious, just loved everything about him.

“I showed up an hour before our planned departure time…pretending that she had gotten the times mixed up.” “I’m sorry. I thought you said eleven.” I did.“Nope. Ten.” She was dressed in a pair of logoed steel sweats and a pink ribbed tank top-sans bra. “Nice sweats.” Nice tits. the damn things were saluting me.”

description

This book was an amazing read about finding love and getting over insecurities of the past. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a funny read with sexiness; with a Hot Hero and a cool heroine. The heroine’s friend Indie so totally deserved a book because she was hilarious as shit loved her. If you are looking for your next book boyfriend well look no more Brody is the shit!

Flora Dane was abducted and kept captive for 472 days five years ago. Not many victims that disappear for so long walk out alive. However; either luck or not Flora managed to survive that horror that was being trapped by a monster. He did imaginable things that left her broken and traumatized for life. Seven years after Flora was found and taken back into society s at twenty seven year old he was still trying to fit in but life just wasn’t the same. She no longer felt like herself and struggle in a daily basis with nightmares of that horrible time. Flora’s mother is a true survivor’s mother she really was a hero in my eyes she never gave up on her daughter and even after she returned not herself she was always there for her. She had an FBI victim specialist assigned to Flora’s case; Samuel Keynes. He helped them tremendously getting her life back. He didn’t have to be involved anymore after so long but he was and I loved him for that, he was the only person Flora trusted.

“My kidnapper had a mission of his own, to remove all shred of humanity from me. To hollow me out, break me down, to turn me into nothing at all.” Flora

When Detective D.D. Warren from Boston gets called in to a murder scene of a Bartender who gets burned alive by a victim aka Flora; Detective D.D. gets suspicious right away her instincts tells her she needs to look into that case much closer. Little did she know that she wasn’t going to get a break when she took this case. So many questions started to come up instead of answers. Detective D.D. is the best of the best in her department she was in house leave for an injury to her shoulder and was not supposed to be working the case. As a sergeant she only had to supervise instead of in hands-on investigating as a detective but she couldn’t leave it. She has a beautiful four year-old son Jack; and an amazing supportive husband that works as a crime scene reconstruction specialist and instructor at the police academy. Alex was so smart and often than not helped her cope with the cases and with their son. He even gave her some inside input and I loved their relationship so much. I enjoyed D.D. sarcastic ways she was such a bad ass detective.

“Bound wrists don’t seem to indicate willingness.””Sorry. Given that it’s a Fifty shades of Grey world, I can’t make that assumption.” D.D.

“Flora’s gone missing…we’re no longer looking for one missing girl, we’re now looking for at least two.” D.D.

descriptiondescription

This book was full of suspense from page one and it was a total roller coaster ride full of mystery and so intense. I was on the edge of my bed while reading this book the entire time. The author had you guessing; everyone was a suspect and it was so nerved wrecking trying to get to the truth. I love D.D’s sarcastic ways and the relationship she has with her team and husband’s it was such an enjoyable read. When D.D. realized that the male burned in the fire was possible responsible for the disappearance of two other missing girls this case was her priority. However; when she thought she had something and knew that Flora had the answers she finds that Flora was abducted once again from her own personal apartment. More questions more suspects and I was panicking the entire time. This book was twisted, raw, disturbing, but yet I just couldn’t stop reading this thriller of a story. I loved everything about this book no matter how disturbing it was it kept me hooked and intrigued and guessing everything at the same time. I wanted answers and holy hell it was a thrilling ride. To all my thriller suspense readers you will love this book. This book was written from both Flora and DD’s point of views. The fact that this author takes her time investigating missing cases in real life and talking to detectives makes this book so much more amazing and enjoyable because even though it’s fiction we do get a detailed of how these cases work in real life and how the Detectives work to Find Her.

“But his eyes caught me. There was something I recognized in them- a sorrow or a longing that was both gripping and haunting. I saw myself in those eyes.” Emily

descriptiondescription

Emily Wayborn was wild from early age living the life; a crazy wild life with her best friend Amber. They were best friends and went thru so much together. It has been five years since Emily decided to leave that life behind she learned the hard way due to her actions and her living style with Amber that she wanted something better for herself. She tried to pull Amber away from that life of drugs, man, sugar daddies and low life of submission but she couldn’t take Amber; but she wouldn’t leave it behind. Emily thought her life was finally looking better having a good carrier in Hollywood even if it’s only a voice behind camera that no one knows the face to match it with but she was making a good living for herself until that call. A call from Amber that placed Emily right back to her old life even if she didn’t want to be.

“I don’t know what it is about you.” His voice was strained,…”But I can’t get you out of my mind. You contaminate my thoughts.”

descriptiondescription

Emily hired a private investigator to help her search for Amber but every time she thought she was closed to finding her it lead her to noting. Her only clue to finding Amber was a HOT, dangerous, and powerful man; Reeve Sallis. I couldn’t help liking Reeves; I kind of had a love hate relationship with him. I liked him but not so much to trust him. Emily ends up trying to seduced Reeve to find information on Amber but gets nowhere instead she ends up falling head over heels over him. Reeve was a very intense male something in Emily intrigued him and he chased her back and wanted her. They both seemed to be made for each other she was a natural submissive as he was a natural Dom and together they were explosive. The intensity of their sexuality was damn hot. I was not so sure about Reeves intentions though; so the entire book I was biting my nails so hard it was a complete roller coaster ride when you think you know something but you fucking don’t know a thing. The author twisted things around and at the end lefts us just shocked and hardly having time to breathe.

“I hope you aren’t too saddle sore, because I can’t have you in those tight pants a second longer. I need you naked. I need your cunt out. I need to be inside you.” Reeves

description

“I didn’t want to admit – I’d set out to capture him and instead he’d captured me. I couldn’t fight it. It was done.” Emily


Image and video hosting by TinyPicdescription

There was so much hot sexy steamy scenes on this book you do not want to missed; however there are some disturbing things as well that I prefer not to remember or I’ll throw up. Overall, I enjoyed this story I was hooked from the beginning I couldn’t helped liking both Emily and Reeve but hate both at the same time if that’s even possible? Lol.. Maybe it was just some things I didn’t feel conformable with and made me want to slap them both haha. If you are looking for a steamy, suspenseful, chilling book you have found it on this book. I honestly can’t wait to see the conclusion of this intense read on the next book coming soon on June of this year because let me tell you this book is defiantly a page turner; once you start you will not want to put it down.

“His whispers were unheard whispers. The gasps at the back of my throat were sounds I’d never made. The way my knees buckled, how he pulled me tighter against him, the sighs between us-all new.” Emily

“He was very human behind all the animal mannerisms. Very human and very, very screwed up.” Adrian

descriptiondescription

This book gawd…This book was just amazing, beautifully written and it broke me till the point that every time I think about it my heart breaks and tears falls all over again and I honestly have no idea if I would ever get over this book. The story was just unforgettable, painful, raw but yet beautiful and incredible.

Adrian Birch has been sober from an awful addiction for almost twelve months now. At age twenty-seven she felt like a nobody and worthless living in the city of Boston. The only support system she had was her twin sister and her parents but she felt like a burden to them and wanted to do good for them to prove she can handle real life without the addiction that was drowning her life.

Her life takes a big change when one day she meets Badger a vigilante bicyclist in Boston. She becomes obsessed with him. This guy was harsh and dark which made her more obsessed towards him and she wanted to do anything to get his attention even if that meant faking a false suicide. Everything about this mysterious guy speaks danger; he even had a blogger’s fan made website that idolized him for what he was doing. He was in his own twisted way protecting the city of Boston with his bicycle and taking bad people down and bringing justice into his own hands. When Adrian finally caught “Badger’s” attention they both felt this pull that kept drawing them together. It was just something they both couldn’t control.

description

“I get that, too. Like a magnet.” Adrian


description

Ok so he is definitely not gently at all and he is not even sorry for it he has never had relationships and never let anyone in so talking to Adrian was a new thing for him. Adrian didn’t seem to mind she wanted to know him more because she was having the same feelings for him. I loved Adrian so much on this book because she was having real life issues; she was learning how to be a survivor of a drug addiction and going through an everyday struggle. I feel like Badger with his fucked up history was an inspiration to her.

Adrian and Badger build up a strange relationship; she didn’t know what to call it; her not but now boyfriend?! But a relationship none the less. Badger had a horrible and sad past that pains me so much to think about it. He grew up with no mother to be there and protect him. His nightmares and past was so horrible Adrian wanted to save him so bad but there was no cure for him; for the way he was. She finally understood it but that didn’t changed the fact that she hurt for him. Even with a horrible past Badger had never opened up to anyone and Adrian knew deep in her heart she was the only person he had ever felt anything for even if he couldn’t say it.

“I wondered why I wanted him so much, when he’s never even admitted he liked me…” Adrian

descriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescription

While they were together Adrian realized no matter what; Isaac couldn’t be fixed but she still wanted him. Until it was too much for her she just couldn’t give him what he needed and he knew he couldn’t be what she wanted him to be. He told her to be strong to follow her dreams and be happy doing what she wanted and was good at and not just anything. Badger run the streets of Boston protecting people from danger just because it was a natural thing for him to do regardless of the consequences but he was smart too. He was fast and was not afraid that was something he lost so long ago he was never afraid.

“Give up on me, Adrian, for fuck’s sake…I won’t ever love you back,” he said.”


description description

Adrian ended up separating herself from Isaac but she still wanted to protect him from the police they wanted to bring him down and she was going to do anything to make sure Badger was ok. Even if he couldn’t love her the way she wanted him to; that didn’t mean she couldn’t join the fan group and help him from the sidelines. Badger found out it was her running the town’s revolution to protect her and tried to stop her. The events building up to the end of this revolution was crazy, left me breathless, speechless and in awe. I had so much excitement for what Adrian and Badger’s fans were doing but at the same time that ending just freaking gutted me till no end. Badger is a story that will stay with you forever, it’s funny, sad, heartbreaking but just amazingly beautiful at the same time.

To all my romance lover readers if you want to know if this book has HEA open spoiler. (view spoiler) Because this was me while reading/ when I finished reading/ while writing review/ and still two weeks later I’m a mess and probably will always be when I think of this book. But I regret nothing, that’s what makes it unforgettable for me.

My Rating 5★★★★★ Survival Stars

Title: Odium 0.5
Author: Claire C. Riley
Genre: Dystopia/Horror/Zombie Apocalyptic
Type: Book 0.5 of The Dead Saga Series
POV: First Person – Female
Expected Publication: December 5th, 2015

description

“The Dead had risen. The dead walked. The undead were out there, eating my friends…The images would always be there now, burned into my mind like history written into books.”

descriptiondescription

I have been following Nina’s story since the beginning so when I found out Claire was writing what happened before the apocalypse I knew I had to read it. Little did I know how much it was going to hurt…Ok I’m lying I knew it was going to hurt. I knew somehow Nina’s past wasn’t all happy and flowers so getting to know what exactly happened to her to make her the way she is now made so much sense. It doesn’t mean it didn’t hurt because it did but I can completely understand her reason behind shutting everyone down and not letting people in. Odium 0.5 is where everything started; the story of Nina before the zombie apocalypse hit and what happened behind “those walls”. I didn’t know what I was expecting behind those walls but it sure was depressing as hell. This book was dark, sometimes disturbing and uncomfortable to read; however I couldn’t put it down and devour it in one setting.

Nina was living a normal life like everyone else. A regular job; a husband she loved but somehow they’re marriage was falling apart. Routines and regular life she didn’t appreciate until the apocalypse hit. Nina loved her husband Ben but after so many years of marriage they somehow got sidetrack on material things and stuff that really didn’t mattered; she was sure that they had gotten to a point where their marriage was bound to be done. However; they found themselves appreciating what they had and realizing how much they still loved each other and that stupid fights were just that stupid. The need to survive an ugly apocalypse made her realized how much she wanted to live and make her life better and stop complaining about expensive shoes and material things that no longer mattered if you didn’t have the love of your life with you.

“It takes the end of the world for us to stop fucking arguing, eh?” he said sadly, leaning forward and pressing his forehead to mine.”


Nina and Ben left their home after realizing no one was sending help and they were basically on their own. Ben’s goal was to get to his parents to a safe place; however they never made it far. Ben helped Nina stay strong; he believed in her and gave her the strength to keep going he told her to never give up and fight even if it meant leaving him behind. He made her promise that no matter what she will fight and she will survive.

“He smiled and then turned and kissed me with so much force that I nearly fell over from it.”


description

They found “Deaders” aka zombies on their way to safety and at one stop there was too many; only one was able to escape. Sadly; Nina lost her love, her husband and she promised she will do anything to stay alive. It was much easier said and done because when she finally reached a safe wall aka a building for survivors her world changed. She was too ashamed to try to go to Ben’s parents after what she had just witnessed so she stayed at this so called “safe wall”. At first they were getting help from the government. However as a year went by and food and government helped stopped the rules inside the walls completely changed. Everyone was starving and with nowhere to run to and no one to get help.

“There wasn’t anywhere safe anymore, and it made me wonder if there was really any point in trying to escape this madness.”


description

So many horrible things happened behind those “walls”; I can’t really begin to explain how much I hurt for Nina. Why she detached herself from the world after what she had to do to survive. Every time she tried to save or help someone got hurt she was utterly dead inside and she knew that the only way to survive was to shut her feelings and emotions off. That ending gutted me so much, I felt hopeless. However; thank goodness I’ve read the other books in the series and I am continuing book three because I just love Nina so much more now. This series is phenomenal a story of survival and strength when there is no hope and you feel lost.

Title: Out Of Plans
Author: Stylo Fantome
Genre: Romantic Thriller
Type: Book 2 of 2 from The Mercenaries series
POV: Third Person
Expected Publication: December 15, 2015

“You and I? We make the best ‘big mistakes’, ever.” Marc

descriptiondescription

Out Of Plans picks up six months after the most upsetting ending of the history of book endings haha. Liliana (Lily) Brewster was upset and angry at Marc and she was bound to train and be better than he was. Her goal was to train and be good enough to go avenge the death of her sister. Of course she wished she finds Marc as well but pretended that he didn’t matter to her anymore. She tried to blackout his memory and forgets about him. Little did Lily know that her destiny was bound to come crashing right back to him and back to where they were before fighting for their life together. However this time around she was smarter and stronger.

“I was always stronger than you, you just never realized it.” Lily


description

Marcelle (Marc) Da Sant is trying to do what he thinks is the best; he is in a mission to do something to protect the woman he loved but he let her go. He was bound to keep her safe but what Marc didn’t realized and it sure took him long enough to realized was; this woman he fell for was stubborn and was never going to stop fighting for what she wanted. Marc was very impressed when he crossed path with Lily and this time he wanted to fight for her and keep her. However; Lily wasn’t giving in so easy. Some people may say she was too harsh on him but I thought she was badass and he had to get it in his head they were both a team and they had to trust each other and believe in each other to make things work.

description

“Now that he knew she wasn’t living a peaceful normal life…he couldn’t bear the thought of her being out of his sight.” Marc


description

Kingsley Law; what can I say he was amazing. Lily reached out to him for help and he was there always. He was a badass assassin and I would have given anything to fall head over heels for him but my heart was and had always been with Marc. I felt horrible that he and Lily would have never made a couple they were awesome together as a team; as best friends who understood and could read each other’s thoughts. But her heart was Marc’s and I loved that.

description

This book was packed with action; suspense; it was sexy full of funny moments just plain awesome. These three found themselves again being chased by killers running for their lives and it’s a total roller coaster ride. They finally run out of plan and have to just go with it and follow their instincts but this time it was Lily’s call; oh boy did I loved how these two man would give their lives for this woman. And what Lily did at the end wow left me breathless and speechless. I love a badass heroine and who doesn’t like two hot sexy assassins to go with it?! Hmmm YES PLEASE!. Defiantly recommend this amazing book to all my friends. And I just wish that we get Kingsley’s book he needs a badass heroine for himself as well. He is just amazing. You hear me Stylo??!! *hint*hint* we want Law’s book.

  Title: Lawless
Author: T. M. Frazier
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Book 3 of 4 from King series
POV: First Person – Dual
Publication Date: December 8, 2015

description

“We were two tortured souls…But we found each other. We needed each other.” Thia

description
description

Lawless is the story of “Bear aka Abel” who we meet in King and Tyrant. Bear had suffered so much growing up and was just out of the MC “hiding” or just staying away from his father who wanted his head. He was living a destructive life with no escape or hope of being saved. When he least expected some mistakes of his past brought him back to the town he never wanted to see again. Back in Florida he finds this stupid girl that he never in his dreams imagine would take his words seriously and his life changes dramatically.

“I missed knowing my place in the world and knowing who I was…driving back into the gates of my hell, I had no fucking idea.” Bear


description
description

Thia Andrews; at only ten-years old meets Bear during one bad circumstance. Bear gives her something to trick her not to give his trouble MC friend away. Thia takes Bear’s gift and believes in his words. Seven years later; at seventeen years old she finds herself in trouble and no one or nowhere to run to. She panic and the only person that came to her mind was the promised of help from Bear. Little did she know that going to him was going to make her life more dangerous than it already was.

After King is able to get Bear back in town to handle the trouble that Thia was in; Bear finds himself not knowing what to do. He just wants her to go away and for him to continue his destructive life. I really felt for Bear for everything he went through. Thia had no family left she lost her brother at a young age and now she had no parents either or any family to go to and in a big hole that she doesn’t know how to escape from. Growing up too early she had to learn the hard way to depend on no one but herself with two part time jobs on top of her full time job; she was trying to help out at her home the best she could. I loved how brave she was she didn’t hesitate when she had to pull the trigger when trouble faced her. She was a great shooter and that impressed Bear. He had never met anyone like her; so strong and determine but fragile at the same time. Bear saw so much in her and she saw the same emptiness and sadness in Bear. She wanted to help him and he wanted to help her. They were just perfect together.

description

With a little persuasive she got what she was wanting from Bear he gave in he tried to resist the entire time but at the end he just couldn’t; he couldn’t helped wanting her.

“I’m not stopping at kissing. I’m not stopping until you’re mine in every fucking way.” Bear

Bear was bound to do anything for Thia even if that meant making her hate him; he knew that once his father finds her she was dead and he was willing to give himself up to save her. All the events at the end of the book left me breathless and with panic. I had an ache in the chest, my throat was in knots and I just wanted and make it all better but of course I have to read the beginning of the next book and shit why did I do that?? I felt worse than before. Now off to wait for the next book to come because I need answers and revenge. This waiting my just kill me.

Title: Perfect Ruin
Author: Nashoda Rose
Genre: Dark Erotic Romance
Type: Book 2 of 3 from Unyielding series
POV: First Person – Multiple (Mostly dual)
Expected Publication: December 14, 2015

description

“I’ll always look out for you, braveheart.” Kai


descriptiondescription

Perfect Ruin is the second book in the Unyielding series. Kai was introduced in Perfect Chaos; in order to enjoy this book to the fullest you must read book one as you will see characters like Chaos, Deck, Conner and many more you do not want to miss out. Even the Tear Asunder band shows up say what??! OMG yes this book is just amazing. This book had me hooked right from the beginning. Who could resist a super-HOT killer that falls for the wrong girl?!. So is he really that bad?! You will have to read this amazing, steamy, thrilling and suspenseful story to see it.  Kai is a hitman for the “Vault” aka a twisted business. His mother is the head of that awful system where they would keep children like him at a “farm” aka a horrible place and brained washed them to have no feelings and become well cold hearted killers. He grew up in darkness, getting used to pain and no feelings; he didn’t like it but that was all he ever knew until her. When he was assigned to a specific case he met London; the daughter of a scientist the Vault was using for their own twisted stuff.

“Mother thought we were more dangerous if we had no attachments, no feelings” Kai


descriptiondescription
London grew up following her father’s footsteps studying to be a scientist. Her mother was killed in a fire when she was only fourteen years old. When she found out her father was in something bad that she couldn’t explained she wanted to help him by giving herself to the killer to Kai. She told him she will do anything if he kept her father safe. London had no idea the darkness of that path her life was going to get pretty soon. However; in the midst of her struggle to save her father she falls madly in love with the man she thought wasn’t capable of loving.
description

“The magnetic draw of my brave little scientist was irresistible. London was the woman who tested all my control.” Kai


description
By the time London realized she had made a packed with the devil she was way in lust with this gorgeous creature. She couldn’t explain it but she wanted him and she had made up her mind that he will keep her safe. Kai had a mixed of emotions he couldn’t understand himself; he had never felt anything so powerful for anyone so these feelings were new to him but he just couldn’t stop them. He selfishly took the deal she offered and took advantage of the chance to have her. Oh boy was I in heaven? Any changes of me not loving Kai went out the door because this man, this amazing killer was so hot, strong, and powerful and I loved everything about him. The way he took charge and took possession and defended what he decided it was his and his alone was just amazing. He claimed her and WOW just left me breathless.

“I wanted him,…I liked how his hands felt on me and how he made my body submit to his.”             London

description

“It was like I was thawing, the ice congealed around my emotions melting a little each day.” Kai

Kai’s mother knew he had fallen and stole London and she was captive as a slave and broken down to the lowest possible. London tried at first to not give in; she tried but the damage was so bad after two years of being captive she was broken and didn’t want to live. Kai searched and searched never giving up on her, he had promised her that he will always watch out after her and he kept his promise. I was a puddle of bubbling crying mess seeing him struggle trying to find her and seeing him suffer. I couldn’t have fallen any harder for this man. 

descriptiondescription

He helped London, set her free in a way that no other lover could. Kai was a hero in my eyes. The way he went to war for her was just EPIC. London was able to get stronger and never let herself be broken down again no matter what even after she was capture once again; she was able to practice everything she had learned with Kai to learn how to protect your mind from damage. There was so much hotness, so much suspense from beginning to end. I absolutely devour this book in one setting because I just couldn’t get enough. It was amazing what Kai did for London everything he did was truly and completely powerful that will leave you panting for him. I was absolutely thrilled by the way this book ended; so much action and the author was able to bring us back some of the characters from the previous books it was just an amazing reading experience. Everyone needs to read this book the minute it comes out. I am looking forward to more of this series and super excited for Conner’s book.

POV: First Person – Dual (shifting)

“Fate had decided we were matched. And we’d fulfilled that prophecy by falling head over fucking heels.” Jethro

description

description

Final Debt is the last installment of this captivating series. I wasn’t sure what to except going into this but what I read defiantly exceeded my expectation. This book, just WOW was absolutely amazing packed with suspense, action, and love yes sweet love. All the secrets finally came out and so many things happened I was a complete anxious mess. My anxiety levels were high up in the sky with all the events and boy did we get an unforgettable finale?! Oh YES we do. It was completely worth the wait and heart break we endured during the series. I am so sad this series has come to an ending but also because there was one part on this book that completely utterly broke me for life. I don’t know that it had to happen but it made this book so much memorable defiantly something I would never forget and cry all my life over it.

This book picks up right where book five ended; the beginning was so depressing I desperately wanted, needed salvation a miracle or something. Nila Weaver was taken from London by Cut and Daniel to Africa; she was alone and had no hope in surviving this madness. However; she wasn’t giving up this fight so easily. No matter how much torture she endured she continue to fight because love and hope was much stronger than death. Nila was so much stronger on this book; she was a total badass I adore her for it. She had grown so much from the beginning and made this book an epic story with her amazing survivor actions.

“I was alive. I was dead. I was reborn.” Nila

descriptiondescription

Jethro Hawk was under a time bomb; he thought he had time to save his love ones. He had a plan but time was always against him. He was desperate trying to save the love of his life and his brother and sister from his evil family. The extend of what he went through to rescue Nila and saved his family gutted me. My man got hurt, injured, flew countries to try to save her and at omg the anxieties were so high I was biting my nails the entire time. My heart was in my throat I was a mess. 

“I would breathe, but I would die….My heart would split open…I knew what hell was.” Jethro

description

He finally finds Nila and they had amazing heated moments I was trying to enjoy it but at the same time I was freaking out like watching a scary movie where the monster is coming right behind them and if they don’t run fast enough they will die?! Yeah I felt like that the entire time. It was a total roller coaster ride. However; in the midst of it all they managed to keep their hopes and love alive.

“I kissed her. The instant my lips touched hers, it was if a nuclear explosion mushroomed inside her.” Jethro

descriptiondescription

You do not want to miss out on this EPIC finale. The author manages to suck you into this book from beginning to end. This book is an endless roller coaster ride that will have you on the edge of your seat cheering for your favorite team Nila and Jethro. So many things happened I cannot tell you enough how much I loved this final book. It was the best; it had everything we have been wanting from the beginning of the series and you will not be disappointing the way the author managed to put this finally together. Final Debt was a complete stunning ending and it will forever stay in my heart, it sealed the ending of the Debt Inheritance series and it was the best. 

“We each had our craters and defects from war. But we would wear them with pride.” Nila
