Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Ripped from the headlines, ‘Dateline’ watching, twisted kind of book! This is the kind of reading that makes sure I never go camping in remote areas and certainly makes sure I never venture out anywhere alone!! Holy Twistedness!!

I was on the edge of my seat the entire time wondering what was going to happen and if Christopher and Ember were going to live, GAH!! I loved every moment of it!

Papa Rich is one demented man who has held Ember captive for the past twenty years, but her story is twisted in a “this is why I never took my eyes off my kids when they were young” kind of way and when Christopher trespasses on Richard’s property he has no idea that his life is about to radically change by being kidnapped by a deranged madman who is about to force him to marry his captive daughter.

This entire book is crazy good. A total psychological thrill ride with a madman steering the ship and two souls who may never have met under normal circumstances, but grow close under duress.

This is the first book on this crazy ride and ends on a cliffhanger. I can hardly wait to pick up where Christopher and Ember left me hanging.

Synopsis:

You will take this bride.
To have and to hold from this day forward.
Till death do you part.
This will be your solemn vow.

You have no choice.

Trapped in a twisted and dark courtship with a secret woman who needs my strength to survive, I will be wed.
Walking the thin line between lunacy and reality, I am now the protector of my future captive bride.
So, I have no choice but to recite the vows.

I take thee.
In this arranged matrimony.
Until we are parted by death.

***Captive Bride is a dark psychological thriller. If you dare… join me in the march down the aisle.

Review – The Sound of Temptation by Dylan Allen

54740940. sy475

The Sound of Temptation 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: March 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Second Chance Romance

Author: Dylan Allen

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

An epic journey of life and love. Carter and Beth bring to life this story of heartache, mistakes, regret, and second chances where you meet the love of your life when you are too young to make the right choices, but at a point when emotions run high enough to cause lifelong damage. Can you really forgive and forget when a second chance comes along or is the past really better left in the past?

Carter meets Beth the summer before his career really takes off in the music business. Even though they talk about staying in touch, it’s before a lie implodes his life apart and destroys everything they built.  A decade passes before he confronts her and works up the nerve to talk to her again. However, a decade of pain has built up around Beth and life has broken her down by anyone who should have lifted her up. She no longer has time for empty promises or broken dreams.

Carter is a man full of grief, through much of this book. Being with Beth is truly when he feels much of anything. He’s willing to risk a lot to be with her, but it may be too late when he finally realizes what he wants.

Beth has been pushed down and alone for most of her life. The one time she hasn’t felt that way was when she was with Carter, but then he tore that from her and Beth was back to looking out for herself. Beth is broken when Carter returns to her life and trusting him again is a risk she isn’t sure she can take again. How much pain can one woman take in her life?

When you meet the greatest love of your life when you are young can you really make life decisions when life has other ideas already in store for you or can you find love again in second chances?

Synopsis:

The Sound of Temptation, an epic and emotional second chance forbidden romance from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Dylan Allen.

Unbelievably gorgeous, wildly talented, and on the cusp of stardom, Carter Bosch was the kind of man I’d never dared to dream of.
But the summer he showed up in my small town – city slick and full of promises –
He put stars in my eyes and hope in my heart.
He called me his muse and said we were meant to be.
And until the day he broke my heart, I believed him.
Ten years later, his reputation tarnished by scandal and personal tragedy, Carter’s back.
He begins a relentless pursuit to win me back, but those stars in my eyes have been replaced by flames.
And for a chance to claim my ticket to freedom, I made a deal with the devil that I dare not break.
But, a rock god fallen from grace is still a god,
And a woman with her walls up, is still a woman.
Soon, my foolish heart is torn between duty and desire.
When it finally falls, he stands ready to claim it.

Just when we think we can see forever, a dark secret is revealed that rips us apart.
Loving him is forbidden, but my heart can’t let him go.
Because Carter and I are meant to be.
And what’s meant to be will find a way.

Shift of Morals

by K Webster

Publication Date: March 26, 2021

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, M/M, Shifter Romance

Read for FREE in KindleUnlimited: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Amazon CA | Amazon AU

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster comes an angst-filled, steamy age-gap MM shifter standalone romance!

***This is the fifth book to release in the Kingdom of Wolves collection but is a COMPLETE STANDALONE. It’s meant to be read on its own and is a full story with a happily ever after.***

I found him when he was a boy.

Bloody. Mangled. Near death.

If I’d been a merciful alpha, I would’ve snapped his neck and ended him right then.

Except, I didn’t.

Something in his big brown eyes tugged at my heart strings.

I kept him. Healed him. Raised him to be fierce, loyal, and brave.

Now that he’s an adult, everything’s changing.

He’s no longer the soft, scared beta I once thought he was.

No, there’s an uncontrollable anger inside him.

A rage-filled hate I don’t understand.

As a dangerous pack begins tormenting us and destroying our home, I feel him pulling from me as he seeks justice.

He thirsts for revenge, even if it means leaving our pack and going solo.

But, as his alpha, I won’t let him go without a fight.

Each time he pushes, I pull him right back to me.

I’ll keep him locked in my arms or pinned beneath me forever if that’s what it takes to keep him.

A shift of morals has begun.

One I don’t understand, but certainly don’t resist.

I’m the most powerful wolf on Beacon Island. I don’t have weaknesses.

Until now.

This wild, reckless young man changed everything when he stole my heart.

This book is a steamy standalone MM age-gap shifter romance. No other books need to be read before or after this one as it is a complete story.
