Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Dark is the second book in the Dangerous Web trilogy and should not be read alone.

We find ourselves in the eye of the storm, in complete darkness, blind from all sides.

Dark is infused throughout this entire story. Dark thoughts consume Reid; revenge, remorse, regret, everything he should have done to help keep his wife safe and everything he will do to avenge her time captive rolls through his mind on a continual loop. Will he be able to protect her and give her the safety she needs move past this trama?

Lorna, while found, is also consumed by darkness. The dark hole that resides in her mind where memories are missing, the dark hole that resides in her chest connected to the abduction, and the overall spiral of darkness that seems to suck her down on a daily basis. Will she ever feel normal again?

While Lorna just wants to remember so she can feel normal and move forward, everyone around her keeps stating she needs to rest and needs time. These are the very last things she wants to do, as the darkness consumes her when she closes her eyes and she fears what will happen if Reid gets his chance to opportunity for revenge.

More twists and turn as the story weaves in and out from past to present. This book is dark; facing abuse, trama, and recovering from abduction. Looking at both sides of the victim and the loved ones who want to care for the victim, but both struggling through the recovery.

Who will Reid seek his revenge on and will it be in time to save Lorna from sinking too far into her own darkness? Jump into this intense suspenseful read and become Aleatha’d.

*I personally don’t do many trigger warnings, but there is a scene that is pretty in depth that could be trigger-some if you were ever a victim of sexual child abuse. So, either skip this part, or know this trilogy contains this subject matter. 

Synopsis:

“Maybe you have to know the darkness before you can appreciate the light.” ~ Madeline L’Engle

Darkness has fallen upon the Sparrow world.
What seemed secure was breached, and what was assumed unattainable is possible.
In this dangerous underground world, we Sparrows took our power by force. As dusk gave way to dark, we Sparrows are once again determined to use any means necessary to recover what is ours, secure our stronghold, and defeat those who appear unconquerable.
The gauntlet has been thrown.
We will not retreat.
Darkness be damned. It is time for triumph.
I am Reid Murray.
For my wife and my brothers-in-arms, nothing, not even darkness, will stop the Sparrows from victory.

Have you been Aleatha’d?

Review – Fury by Tracy Lorraine

Fury; Rosewood High #6 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

What an emotional ride! Ashton is going to roll into your heart and leave it a bloody, aching mess and blow away all your expectations.

After reading Faze, I was desperately aching for more of Ashton. I love a good bad boy and Ashton came riding into Rosewood darker than dark. He was hellbent to destroy Ruby and the small taste Tracy gave us left me salivating for how this bad boy was going to fall.

When Ashton is sent to live with his estranged father the first time he goes out of his way to make Ruby’s life a living nightmare, but when his feelings change for her and become too much he leaves and moves back to Seattle to live with his mother. This is where we pick up the story in Fury months later after Ashton has left.

Ashton has fallen back into old habits while back home in Seattle, which was the main reason his mother wanted him to live with his father. His old habits had him circling the drain of gang activity and those habits unfortunately lead to tragedy that change the course of Ashton’s life forever.

Ashton was angry and dark in Faze, but this time he spirals into a darker grief spiral that will really break your heart. His pain is deep and toxic, but at the same time so relatable you understand why Ruby is drawn to him and wants to ease his suffering. This doesn’t stop him from using her to make her feel like he does. He’s toxic, he knows it, and he wants to ruin her life the same way his has been ruined.

Ruby’s life circles around cheer and hopefully getting the national title this year. She doesn’t need an angry stepbrother stepping into her life messing with her head or her life when she’s so close to achieving her goal. However, whenever Ashton is near she can’t seem to stay away and whenever he seems to be sinking she can’t seem to help, even if it might hurt her in the long run.

The push and pull of these two is unlike any of other of Tracy’s characters. I felt Ashton’s pain so deeply, while at the same time I emphasized with Ruby’s need to immerse herself in his pain to help him through it. What could have seemed like reprehensible behaviour instead came across as relatable and both Ashton and Ruby gave us that sympathy through deeper emotions. These are truly two of Tracy’s best written characters.

I’m also very excited with a few directions that could come out of secondary characters for future stories.

Step back into Rosewood and buckle up for an emotional ride.

I highly recommend reading FAZE before reading FURY. It’s a short prequel to Ashton and Ruby’s story and highlights the beginning to their tumultuous relationship.

Faze by Tracy Lorraine

I shouldn’t be fazed by him…

He turned up like a ghost in the night, determined to make me scream.

But he’s no ghost, he’s as real as the feelings I try not to have.

My illusive stepbrother, has everyone fooled. Except me.

One look into his dark eyes and I know.

He’s pure evil. Haunting my house… and my darkest dreams.

Pursuing me to prove a point and determined to make his stay as excruciating as possible.

I already know I’m going to get burned but I can’t help myself, like a moth I’m drawn to his black flame.

One thing’s for sure, after this Halloween, I’m never going to be the same again.

Dear Reader

Faze is a prequel to Rosewood High #6. It’s a dark high school bully romance and not intended for readers under 17.

Synopsis:

My step-sister was an outlet for my pain, but everything has changed. 

Now, I’ve got nothing to lose. 

I’m infuriated by my feelings for her…

They’ve held me captive all this time.

I might have been the one that walked away, but that doesn’t mean I’m not still haunted by her—by what I did to her.

But that’s the thing about ghosts… they always return when you least expect it.

My stepsister was an outlet for my pain, but everything has changed.

Now I’ve got nothing to lose.

If she thought I hated her the first time we met, then she’s about to get a shock.

The rage I felt didn’t compare to the fury that now consumes me.

I might be empty, but I’m going to show her how it feels by taking away everything she has… one painful piece at a time.

FURY is the sixth book in my Rosewood High series. You can read the beginning of this couples story in their prequel FAZE.

BLURB

West Golden—Football star. Playboy. Dead to me.

Nothing puts the final bullet in a girl’s rep like a leaked sex tape. Especially one starring her and the cocky quarterback who’s had it out for her since day one. Yep, you guessed it. That girl is me.

At Cypress Prep, West is king, but all I see when I look at him is the wicked prick who gets off on trying to break me.

His plaything.

Go ahead. Give him a round of applause for winning that last round, but know this—hell hath no fury like a girl from the south side with a baseball bat. 

Hurt me once, shame on you. Hurt me twice… over my dead body.

***

NEVER HIS GIRL is the highly anticipated continuation of the KINGS OF CYPRESS PREP series. This is book two in a trilogy and should only be read after completing book one, THE GOLDEN BOYS.

This saga contains strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (… eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the series for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

This series is sure to give you GOSSIP GIRL and ONE TREE HILL vibes, and the angst will have you burning through the pages to find out what happens next. One-click and get lost in this series today!
