Review – Wicked Empire by Tracy Lorraine

59067362. sy475

Wicked Empire; Knight’s Ridge Empire #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: December 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Dark/New Adult/Bully/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Lorraine pulled out all the stops for this roller coaster of a ride with an epic end to the beginning of this fantastic trilogy!

Seb and Stella are a totally badass couple and perfectly made for one another. In this third book of the trilogy, these two not only race against finding the threat who has been attacking them, but they also face new obstacles that threaten their new found happiness. It’s a real emotional ride.

Seb and Stella are extremely hot, hands down, but there is a ton of mounting tension between another couple, which made this book extra good. While Seb and Stella’s story may be over, Tracy has set this world up with rich character development and fully connected plot lines from her other books, but never fear, this world completely stands on its own.

Knight’s Ridge Empire has been one of Tracy’s best so far and I’m totally looking forward to more from these characters and this world.


USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

She didn’t want to believe me.

She wanted to believe the threat wasn’t really there.

But as the sirens ring out in the distance and she stares down into my eyes, she can no longer deny what’s right in front of her.

I’m not going to go down without a fight.

And I’m sure as hell not going to lose her now.

Even as our stubbornness tries to force us apart, severing everything we’ve built thus far.

With our nerves frayed and tempers close to breaking point, our fractured family sets about discovering the truth.

But we soon uncover more corruption and betrayal that only causes more pain to those I love.

Our entire empire is at risk, and it’s time to put the past behind us and carve out the future we deserve.

Dear Readers,

Wicked Empire is the third and final in Stella and Sebastian’s trilogy and the first couples story in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series. This book is a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.

Wicked Knight (Knight's Ridge Empire, #1) Wicked Princess (Knight's Ridge Empire, #2)

Review – Delicate Revenge by Stasia Black and Alta Hensley

59651626. sy475

Delicate Revenge; Breaking Belles #6 
(#6 within a series)

Publication Date: December 13, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/Secret Society/Dark Romance

Author: Alta Hensley and Stasia Black

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Deliciously decadent and so sinful. Delicate Revenge is dripping in the smolder with this new couple trying to join the ranks of The Order of the Silver Ghost.

Emmett Washington comes from new money and he’s always had this need to prove himself among his friends and peers since his family moved to Darlington. The drive to be perfect and have the best runs deep. So winning the trials is all that matters to him, to gain the respect of the Elders, is another move in his life of perfection. To make that happen he needs the perfect partner and when his eyes land on Bellamy Carmichael, the queen bee who attended Darlington Prep with Emmett he knows he’s found the perfect belle.

What secrets is she hiding and how has Bellamy landed in the position of a belle? Emmett isn’t sure he wants to know. He will use her to his own purpose to gain what he needs, so why should he care, until he begins to.

This series has only gotten better and better with each book. This couple and their dynamic together was electric from the very beginning.Delicate Revenge had an underlying Dom/sub tone, which was delicious between the two of them and made the storyline even more dynamic.


Bellamy Carmichael was Darlington’s princess all through high school. Perfect, popular, too gorgeous for words—and unfortunately, she knew it.

I’d had a crush on her ever since arriving at Darlington Prep, only she never looked my way except for an occasional cruel put down. I was a scrawny kid, nerdy, and worst of all, my family was new money.

But now, a decade later, the tables have turned. I’m the one the Elders of the Secret Society are courting. During my Initiation, I’ll be given more leeway than any other before me. After all, my family measures their wealth in hundreds of billions.

And Bellamy Carmichael has somehow found herself as a Belle of the Midnight Ball. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Unlike my brothers, I’m going to enjoy my initiation and breaking my belle.

It began with hearing voices – just another step on my steady descent into madness. It was inevitable, considering the whole town hated me and I was the loneliest person on the planet.

I didn’t really blame them, I guess. Everyone who got close to me ended up in the hospital. I’d be suspicious of me too.

When the three distinct, alluring voices in my head started to appear before my eyes as three distinct, gorgeous men I really started to question everything I thought I knew.

They called themselves Dreamwalkers and told me they were hunting the monster attacking all the people around me.

They won’t leave me alone.

I’m not sure I want them to.

But am I the monster they’re after? Or are we all in worse danger than I ever could’ve imagined?


Read Kay’s Review: Reverie and Redemption

Kaydence Snow has lived all over the world but ended up settled in Melbourne, Australia. She lives near the beach with her husband.

She draws inspiration from her own overthinking, sometimes frightening imagination, and everything that makes life interesting: complicated relationships, new experiences and good food and coffee. Life is not worth living without good food and coffee!

She believes sarcasm is the highest form of wit and has the vocabulary of a highly educated, well-read sailor. When she’s not writing, thinking about writing, planning when she can write next, or reading other people’s writing, she loves to travel and learn new things.
