60199475. sy475

Filthy
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Intrigue/Age-Gap/Bodyguard Romance

Author: Tia Louise

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A hero doesn’t always recognize they are a hero…Scar and Hana both have their moments of heroism in this beautiful, and yes, wonderfully filthy book, but their emotional growth is simply heroic.

Dang, did I love this book!!! I totally want to leave my review with that simple sentence, but….Scar was all that and every bag of chips in the chip aisle. He has a dark history. It’s one that is complicated and best read when the time is right, but he’s also the gentlest giants when it comes to Hana who had been abused and for the first time in her life feels safe around him. He’s one of Tia’s best wounded heros and his story is stunning with twists and so much love.

Hana has her own dark past, but the growth she’s had from her sister’s book through the end of this one is wonderful. I adored how she helps Pepper, Hutch’s niece, and takes her own happiness in to her own hands. She has grown into a woman that deserves to stand by Scar’s side.

Their relationship is sweet, and super, super hot, but also has its own complications, so I’m back to saying I loved everything about it!!

Synopsis:
Good girls are saved by princes, but my savior is a monster.

After my father died and my family splintered, I became a target, a pawn in a game I didn’t know I was playing.
Then he appeared—dark, dangerous, tormented, and always just within reach.
He makes me come alive. He makes me remember.
He makes me feel something I lost years ago: Safe.
And he thinks he can keep me at arm’s length…

Once upon a time I was a hero, until the sins of my father caught up with me, and I was forced into darkness.
I should’ve died in that fire. Instead, I served evil men, until I risked it all by walking away.
Now I’m a wanted man. At any time, I could be taken down for what I owe.
What I don’t expect to find in my hiding place is her—broken, beautiful, so damn tempting.
I was hired to keep her safe. I shouldn’t touch her with my filthy hands.
But every day it gets harder, then she starts sneaking into my bed.

Together, we’re filthy, but together, we can find our way through the flames.

(FILTHY is a stand-alone, bodyguard, romantic suspense novel. It contains a fierce, wounded alpha-protector and the filthy girl he’s hired to protect. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

About Bruised But Not Broken

Ben

Spark of Hope: A bi-weekly trauma support group.

This is my nightmare. When I think of a support group, I think of sad people sitting around talking about their feelings and nothing changing.

And yet, when my brother and his best friend, who happens to be a therapist, presented the idea of holding the meetings at my gym, I caved.

Because I, Benjamin Price, have always tried to rescue the people in my life. But I can’t. I’ve usually failed them.

Now, I’m hosting a trauma support group and desperately trying not to fall into my old habits—of attempting to save everyone.

And then, he walks in.

Bruised. But not broken. No matter how exhausted he may feel, a strength in him calls to me.

And there’s no way I can ignore the need deep inside me to at least try.

Colby

I’m tired. I’m afraid. And I don’t want to go back.

Not to the abusive relationship I told myself I was okay with for years.

But what am I supposed to do?

I have no real life skills. All my life, I’ve been told I’m pretty and that’s it.

Then I walk into a gym, looking for a job, but I find so much more.

I don’t want to trust Ben. I don’t believe his help doesn’t come with a price.

But what choice do I really have?

One thing’s for sure . . . Neither of us are getting out of this intact.

What we lose though, that’s anyone’s guess.

**Trigger Warning**

Bruised But Not Broken is set around a trauma support group and will, therefore, touch on extremely sensitive subjects. I’ll always do my best to handle these topics with care and healing, and with no intention of hurting anyone. But please, heed this warning if you have any triggers.

They stole my heart at fourteen and broke it before we even graduated high school.

It’s been five years since I’ve seen them, and only a twist of fate reunites us when the mountain falls. It’s the first disaster in a predicted apocalypse—a string of natural disasters that could be catastrophic.

It’s the beginning of the end of everything.

Finis omnibus.

Old feelings reignite and new feelings blossom as the four of us form an unbreakable bond. As the world starts to fall and society fractures, it’s a race against time for survival.

New Release – Keeping His Princess by Tyleigh

Release Date: June 3

I had big plans for my future. None of them included becoming my bully’s princess….

If I wanted to get into my dream college, I needed to up my volunteer game, and tutoring was the perfect way to do it.

Why did my newest pupil have to be him?

Ethan Madden may be the “too sexy for his own good” captain of the soccer team but that didn’t change what he had done.

See, Ethan was the guy who’d been making my life miserable since we were kids. And it didn’t seem like much had changed. He was still the cold, dark-hearted bastard he’d always been.

But, we aren’t kids anymore.

So, if tutoring Ethan was the only way to get what I needed, I was more than capable of doing the job and getting out quickly.

At least I thought I could do that until Ethan told me he wanted something, too—and it wasn’t just tutoring.

He wanted me.

Knowing him, he was willing to play dirty, too. What he didn’t know was that when it came to protecting my heart, so was I…
