Blurb:

Men have always committed atrocities chasing after their desires.

The men in my family have it down to an art form.

Personally, I’ve never experienced a desire that ran so deep it poisoned my soul.

Until the night I laid eyes on her.

It’s really too bad she didn’t feel the same way. It could have been a fairytale.

I guess our story was meant to be something a little more twisted.

No matter.

I desire Sophie Bradwell, and I don’t care how many terrible things I have to do to get her… and keep her.

Review – Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Princess; Corrupt Trilogy #2, Knight’s Ridge #14
(#2 within a trilogy, #14 within a series)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Forbidden/Dark/Mafia/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Corrupt Princess picks up right where Corrupt Knight left us with a big OMG!! The toxic relationship between Nico and Brianna built to a boiling a point and we were left wondering if Nico was set out to not only destroy his future but Brianna’s as well while he was spiraling on his destructive path.

This book was very emotional. A big shift from toxic masculinity where men shove everything deep down inside and ignore the problem, but a look at actual healing. I have to say I loved it!! Not to say that this wasn’t still a dark, mafia because it very much was, but Nico’s grief was weighing heavy on his shoulders and without some major changes he was going to self destruct and take out anyone around him. That wasn’t healthy and I’m glad it wasn’t brushed aside.

What I also loved about this book, probably more than I have than any of the other second books in the trilogies of this series, was witnessing the cohesiveness of the group as a whole and how the men and women all work together. There is a reason why each couple has been attracted to each other, but as a girl group they all fit, and as guys they all work together and it all clicks in this book more than ever. The aspect of the “found family” really stands out and I love it!!

We are left with another big cliffhanger as this is the second book in the trilogy, but the third book is coming soon so we won’t have to wait long, but that means I can hardly wait to find out what happens.

Synopsis:
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next instalment of her forbidden dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

I learned from a very young age that the only person I could count on was myself.

For years I’ve been content with meaningless one-night stands and zero promises for tomorrow.

I had a good thing going, until he crashed his way into my life… and heart, and wrecked them both.

Nico Cirillo.

The bad boy mafia prince and the one man who’s ever left me craving more. Not that I’ll admit that.

And now, he’s not only a mistake I’ve made time and time again, he’s everywhere I turn.

Taunting me.
Tempting me.

Doing everything in his power to screw up my life, tarnish my reputation, and corrupt the only dream I’ve ever had.

But while I’m pushing as hard as I can to keep him away, his reckless decisions and hot-headed behaviour have forced him to reconsider.

His U-turn is enough to give me whiplash, but it’s nowhere near enough for me to lower my walls and let him in.

To give him a chance he doesn’t deserve.

It’s going to take more than a bit of grovelling after all the ways he’s hurt me, even if it is on his knees.

Review – Corrupt Knight by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Knight; Corrupt Trilogy #1, Knights Ridge #13
(#1 within a trilogy, #13 within a series)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Forbidden/Opposites Attract/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A total page-turner, with a forbidden aspect, in this enemies-to-lovers story.

Nico is drowning in his grief. He’s hurting and lashing out at everyone he loves and turning to destructive means to numb his pain after losing his father. Within that destructive path is Brianna, the one woman whom he can’t seem to stay away from, but he also treats like dirt. Is it his fault that she comes back for more every single time? While his friends have tried everything to bring Nico back from the darkness, they resort to one last measure and reach out to Brianna to ask for help.

While Brianna has a huge heart and wants to help Nico, her best friend-Jody-is also immersed in this dark world and escaping Nico and his path to self destruction is practically impossible, no matter how much she’d love to walk away. Seeing Nico slipping further into darkness she just can’t say no, but when she lands a job at Knight’s Ridge College and becomes Nico’s teacher she knows she should step away, but once again, getting pulled into his orbit…she has a hard time saying no.

The back and forth, push and pull from these two made my pulse race, especially knowing Brianna’s huge heart. This is book one in a trilogy and ends on a big cliffhanger which will pick up in Corrupt Princess.

Synopsis:
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a new dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

The night we met, she was just another one-night stand.

We were never meant to see each other again, and my best friend certainly wasn’t supposed to go and fall in love with her best friend.

Collateral damage… she’s already broken my biggest rule when we hooked up for a second, third, fourth, and maybe a few more times.

She’s everywhere I turn. I can’t escape her or the things she makes me feel.

Thanks to my best friend wanting to do anything to make his girl happy, she’s the newest teacher at Knight’s Ridge College.

If I needed to stay away before, now I have no choice. Not only is she an obsession I don’t need… she’s forbidden.

But I’ve never been as good at following the rules, so much as breaking them. I need to be careful before she gets too close to break me.

The consuming darkness inside threatens to take over following my father’s death, and I find myself craving her light even more than ever.

The only problem is, I don’t want her to rescue me. I want to drag her down… corrupt her.

We’re a match made in hell that first night we met, so why stop now when playing with fire is so much fun.

Review – Tangled in Tinsel by Trilina Pucci

Tangled in Tinsel
(Standalone)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Holiday/Romantic Comedy/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Trilina Pucci

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Tangled in Tinsel was the perfect blend of hilarity mixed with dirty naked times. One moment I was laughing at Samantha’s antics and word vomit and the very next I was fanning myself over the super steamy dirtiness of Sam with her four men.

This absolutely perfect, holiday-why choose romance, had me laughing so hard in between my face completely flaming up over the wonderful nakkey times that it was total toss up over which aspect I enjoyed more.

Trilina captured all the awkwardness in jumping into a menage-capade on what goes where and who does what and what happens when, especially when it involves an overthinker. I couldn’t have loved Samantha more for all of her racing thoughts that made for several LOL moments. What made it even better were the men that surrounded her and their unique traits that either soothed her, brought out her sinful side, her playfulness, or incited her desires. Each man was unique and it was impossible to choose my favorite, so I understand Sam’s situation when she gets snowed in with them, I’d also jump in and take them all. Yum.

Synopsis:
Imagine being snowed in with four hot successful men.
P.S. they’ve all played the hero in too many of your naughtiest dreams.
​​​​​​​Problem is, you work for them, and that makes them off-limits.
Except now they’re looking at you like you’re Santa’s cookies.
And they definitely want to take a bite.
Talk about making you reconsider your life choices.
These four are aiming for Santa’s naughty list, and I’m pretty sure I’m getting:
Jace
Reed
Alec
…and Cole
for Christmas.
It might’ve started as a decorating job.
But it ended Tangled in Tinsel.

Until Reese shows up ready to get revenge on everyone who hurt him.

 

Including Olivia.

 

His new stepsister.

Reese Whitfield-Brown has been lied to his entire life. But he’s also been lying to himself.

 

What started as a game to ruin Olivia’s reputation quickly turned into obsession. And now he needs her in a way he doesn’t understand.

 

Kind. Compassionate. Strong. She sees past all his bullshit.

 

Reese wants her even though he knows he shouldn’t. Because he can’t be what Olivia needs and when she discovers his true reason for getting close to her, she’ll never look at him the same again.

 

But Olivia is determined to break down Reese’s defenses and be there for him no matter what. 

 

Because some people deserve a second chance.

Blurb:
LITTLE DEMON
I was raised in a world where money and power are at your fingertips. My father is a LORD, a very respected member of a secret society that knows no bounds. When tragedy struck my family, we discovered we weren’t untouchable. Just when I thought life couldn’t get any worse, I was shown what hell is really like. Then he came and saved me. The devil disguised as my personal hero. But of course, nothing is for free. Not when a soul is up for grabs.

I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.

Easton Bradley Sinnett—Sin—uses his power for his own sick pleasure. Like a typical Lord, he never thought about the consequences of his actions. I grew up with him, obsessed over him, craved him. He was who I pictured when I imagined doing things my body shouldn’t want.
One day, I realized he was not who I thought he was. It didn’t change anything, though, because I was already too far gone. If anything, I fell for him harder.
Every now and then, someone enters your life who flips it upside down. Sin wrecked me in the worst way, and I thanked him for it by serving on my knees.
As they say, nothing lasts forever. Men like him never stay with a woman like me. I’m what they use, not keep. So when he threw me away, I shouldn’t have been all that surprised.
My body had always craved the darker side of love. The kind that left bruises and scars. I was what most would call unholy. And when the devil whispered in my ear that he loved me, I was more than determined to show him just how devoted I could be.
