Review – Rogue by Sinclair Kelly

59934175. sy475

Rogue; Sinner’s Mark MC #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: July 15, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Series/Dark/Antihero/Reverse Harem/MC Romance

Author: Sinclair Kelly

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Rogue is the second book in this unique MC series and I loved jumping right back into this Sinners Mark MC world.

I love how fast paced a reverse harem book typically is. There are lots of character POV’s which always amp up the emotional aspect of the story and I’d say most of the books have a darker or at least suspenseful edge to the plot which always keeps the pages turning. It’s certainly one of the reasons why I love this trope. Throw in the steamy good times and I’m a total sucker for a woman who gets loved up by lots of hot men. Seriously…who wouldn’t?

The Sinners Mark MC series has certainly checked off all of these markers and never once have I found the plot stagenent nor did I find any of the characters lacking. This particular MC series is completely unique with a serial killer living in their midst, a believable twin swap, an MC merge hanging in the balance and a love story unlike any other. It’s riveting and totally steamy to boot!!

Remi falls even further for her Sinner guys in this second book, while the mounting tension grows as more secrets make it harder to expose her true feelings. While everyone is working to uncover the truth about what’s happening at her father’s MC and why someone is after her and her twin sister, Etta, Remi feels torn and struggles with wanting to tell Ace, Trip and Saint the entire truth about her past, but Rogue and Squire agree it’s not the right time to open that truth bomb quite yet.

Rogue does ends on a cliffhanger, so the story will continue in the next book. If you enjoy reading an entire series back to back you might want to wait, but otherwise…enjoy this steamy and suspenseful book!!

Synopsis:
Secrets are kind of my thing.

Or at least they were. Now my lies are catching up to me, and the stakes are higher than ever.

The men who unexpectedly claimed me are breaking down every wall I have, exposing vulnerabilities and opening old wounds. But now is not the time for weakness. Not when someone is out to get us and enemies are around every corner. It’s time for me to embrace the inner strength that’s guarded my soul for the last decade and prove to the Sinner’s Mark men that I’m more than capable of taking care of myself…and them too.

The average woman would be afraid. But I’m not your average woman. I’m the monster under the bed. The shadow lurking in the corner. I’m the one thing the darkness fears, and there will be no mercy for those that hurt the ones I love.

Rogue is book two in the Sinners Mark MC series, a medium-burn reverse harem romance featuring darker elements. CONTENT WARNING: This book contains references to sexual assault-related trauma along with violence/torture and graphic sex scenes that some readers may find triggering. Even though this is a work of fiction, please read with caution. Prepare for a cliffhanger ending with no HEA until the final book.

Saint is book one in the Sinners Mark MC series and should be read for the best reading experience before jumping into Rogue.

Saint (Sinner's Mark MC Series Book 1)

There’s a moment in every girl’s life that defines her. I’m just not prepared for mine to happen at the altar, staring into a pair of intense brown eyes that will never belong to me, with mistletoe above my head, and twinkle lights glowing softly for our first kiss as man and wife.

Now he and his men want to claim me as their own. Want to put me on some pedestal and treat me like a princess, or at least their twisted version of one. Every look fires my blood. Every touch threatens to incinerate us all.

But I have secrets. One, they may be able to forgive. The other, well, it’s unforgivable. Once they find out what I’m hiding, there won’t be time for me to explain. My only hope is they’ll grant me mercy. Give me a head start. Let me disappear before they rain their own brand of justice down on all my lies. Because I’m definitely on the naughty list this year…Santa doesn’t even need to check his list twice. Ho, ho, f*cking, ho!

Saint is book one in the Sinners Mark MC series, a medium-burn reverse harem romance meant for 18+. CONTENT WARNING: This book contains references to sexual assault-related trauma as well as an attempted sexual assault scene, along with violence/torture and graphic sex scenes that some readers may find triggering.

Review – Beyond My Darkness by R.C. Boldt

60387101. sy475

Beyond My Darkness
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 12, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Romantic Suspense/Gang/Supernatural Twist

Author: R.C. Boldt

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This book was just everything! Funny and witty, steamy and intense with a supernatural flair and dark gang vibes. Every moment flowed and all of the characters clicked together with ease, so what I’m trying to say is….it was reading perfection!

This is R.C. Boldt writing at her best. Combing her wit of steamy romcoms with her walk into the romantic suspense relm. This combination is so good and so well pieced together that the intense moments are perfectly well balanced with lots of snarky humor.

Georgia Danvers was an absolute delight. Sassy and smart and totally full of word vomit every time she’s around Bronson Cortez, the leader of the Scorpion gang. While Georgia knows better than to attract Bronson’s attention, she can’t avoid the dead bodies that keep piling up in her morgue, that literally keep telling her warn him. What is a girl to do when she can speak to the dead?

Bronson doesn’t trust outsiders, but when a gorgeous redhead shows up in his territory to give him a message, it’s safe to say that he doesn’t like it and has a message of his own. However, Georgia is a fiery woman who continues to come back again and again. There are not many people who stand up to Bronson Cortez and live to see another day, especially ones who sass back the way she does, but there is something about her that intrigues him.  Whatever it is he wishes he could figure out before it proves too dangerous for both of them.

Bronson is a great anti-hero and honestly Georgia is too. Both of them hold their own forms of darkness, but they are also good people if you look at them from all the different angles. I LOVE these kind of stories and especially love how the characters find their paths to each other. Anti-heros never have an easy road as there are always a ton of obstacles to overcome and this book added in mystery with that touch of supernatural so it really had an extra zing that kept the pages turning.

Synopsis:
USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt delivers a seductively unique romantic suspense with a paranormal twist in Beyond My Darkness…

Twelve years ago, I fled, vowing to never again use my power. But everything changes when I break that vow and bring two bodies back to life in the morgue.

It sends me spinning directly into his orbit.

Arrogant. Menacing. Enigmatic. That’s Bronson Cortez, the notoriously violent gang leader who remains elusive to authorities.

He breaks the law at every turn and answers to no one. But when he offers me an alluring glimpse of what lies beneath that iron-clad exterior, I realize there’s more to him than meets the eye.

The man who fiercely guards his heart somehow manages to claim mine.

But he doesn’t know the truth about me.

I wonder if he could be the first to accept me for who I am—what I am.

I wonder if he’ll be the first to see beyond my darkness.

Blog Tour – Dark Knight by Tracy Lorraine

Release Date: June 30

For years I’ve watched her.

Wanted her.

Craved her.

But I never, ever touched her…

Until that night.

When I caved and took what wasn’t mine to take.

The innocent girl I watched from the shadows grew into a tempting goddess who deserved better than my darkness.

One look. One touch. One mistake.

She didn’t just see me… she saw through me.

Revealing my identity was a price I wasn’t willing to pay.

But I was wrong.

She bought me with her touch.

I walked away once, and if I know what’s good for me, I’ll do it again.

But my best intentions are about to be obliterated…

When I find her in the one place she shouldn’t be.

Covering for her means risking the wrath of her family.

The longer I’m forced to keep this secret, the less I care about what it could cost me.

And you know what they say about bad behaviour?

The same thing as good deeds…

They shouldn’t go unpunished.

Dear reader,

Dark Knight is the first book in Calli and Batman’s story, and the next trilogy in the Knight’s Ridge Empire series. If you like your alphas dark and your romance full of angst, then you’re in the right place!

Review – Dark Knight by Tracy Lorraine

60463109

Dark Knight; Empire Knight #10
(#1 within a trilogy, #10 within a series)

Publication Date: June 30, 2022

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A dark, obsessive man is my new love. Batman and Calli bring the heat along with a tension packed story.

Have I ever mentioned that Batman is my diehard, absolute favorite superhero? The broody loaner who has a huge chip on his shoulder, but always saves the day and don’t get me started on ALL of the gadgets…can you imagine what he would have for the bedroom…yum!! Well, Lorraine brings a delicious twist to the Dark Knight in her new trilogy and he fits the mold for dark, obsessive and just a little off his rocker mold, and I’m totally in love already. Batman is completely obsessed with Calli and yet….doesn’t feel worthy of her. This emotional tug-of-war within himself is soooooo good. What is he hiding and where will this obsession lead? I’m on the edge with where his story will lead.

Calli also surprised me with her spunk and fire as she has finally stepped into this world. Calli has always hated her role of being deemed a princess, but she didn’t know how to break free of it either. I feel she’s going to have a lot of character growth over this trilogy and I’m totally here for it. Calli is torn between her own obsession of what she wants and what she desires, not only in men, but in her life. Born a girl in a male dominated mafia world, she feels stifled, and I was so unprepared for the tension and love triangles that came out of how she felt, but I LOVED every moment of it.

Tracy totally upped her writing again, as this Empire world continues to grow, and I especially loved this new couple and can’t wait for more!!

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.

She’s the mafia princess he was meant to stay away from.

And he did.

Until that one night when he was able to hide his identity and his darkness under a different kind of mask.

But one taste wasn’t enough.

Only the next time their paths cross, his inner demon is truly exposed.

Can she handle it, or will his darkness send her running back to her castle and smothered life?

Dear Reader,

This is the full length book for Calli and Batman that started in the Bully God anthology which is set within my dark mafia Knight’s Ridge Empire series.

Review – Hell Gate by Veronica Eden

60756536. sy475

Hell Gate; Twisted Legends Collection #5
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Twisted Myth/Paranormal/Reverse Harem/Dark Romance

Author: Veronica Eden

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I love a tale or myth that is twisted with new flair and makes me giddy to turn each page to discover how it will end. Hell Gate is a fantastic twist on an old lore, classic legend, and centuries old myth that I adored and pretty much salvated over until the very end.

A take on hell and the hierarchy, lore, and legend that comes out of there can really go so many ways and yet it can also go poorly very quickly. That is not the case with Eden’s newest book. Three demons, Valerian, Matthias, and Alder guard one hell gate, a portal between the mortal world and hell. Lily, a mortal, just so happens to be the one who summons those three and thus begins their epic journey.

Their journey to save, not only themselves, but Lily, is full of suspense, adventure, and self discovery. Lily has been shuffled from foster home to foster home and not only has she always felt inadequate, but there is something inside her that sets her apart from others. Her journey to discover why she feels this way and gaining her self worth is magical.

As for the demons that Lily summoned from hell, each unique and picking my favorite is nearly impossible. I could go with the obvious, Matthias, he’s fun, wears his emotions and feelings on his sleeve and always says what he’s thinking. From the moment he meets Lily he’s basically smitten with her and never fails to affirm her inner beauty and strength while praising how much he loves her outer beauty. He’s a total charmer and a key component to the mix.

Alder is the warrier, the strength and always makes Lily feel safe. He can be the reasonable one of the bunch, but he’s also very much an alpha when it comes to Lily. However, he shares very nicely with his demon brothers…is it getting hotter in here?!?

Lastly we come to, Valerian, the broody, silent demon. Lily and Vale bicker and fight like its their foreplay, but he always pulls away. It’s hard for him to admit weakness, especially given his past and right in the midst of what they are going through, Lily is a huge weakness. However, Valerian will never abandon her and he will always protect her. It’s so hard not to like him, even when he’s super broody.

So like I said, who can pick, I want all three just like Lily does, yum. The bond all four of them create is not only steamy to the extreme, but it’s quite beautiful too. The weaving myths and legends were unexpected and I love reading new twists on old tales. This entire book took me on a journey that was new and refreshing and I loved every moment of it. Extremely well thought out and written. It deserves way more than five stars!!

Excerpt

Lust blazes in his eyes. “I will wait for you to come to me.” 

“You’ll be waiting,” I blurt, irritated when amusement skates across his face. I hate how he can obviously tell it’s a lie. He can see I’m floundering. That his want is not one-sided. 

“I have a hand, and my blue balls can be patient.” A teasing smile spreads across his mouth, and I’m ensnared. Massimo is truly beautiful, and I only hope I’m strong enough to resist. I already suspect I’m not. “To a point,” he whispers against my ear, sending warm shivers coursing along my flesh. I squirm on his lap, failing to ignore the hard, thick length pulsing underneath me. 

Massimo groans, and his eyes darken with undeniable desire. “You were put on this earth to test me. I’m sure of it.” 

I can’t smother my smile in time. 

“One kiss,” he says, his eyes dropping to my mouth as his tongue darts out and he wets his lips. “Would you deny your husband a kiss on his wedding night?” 

“I have kissed you today.” 

He shakes his head as his fingers sweep back and forth across my mouth, making it harder and harder to resist temptation. “I have kissed you. You have gone along with it because it was expected.” 

He’s as delusional as me if he truly believes that. I drive my hands into his hair without even thinking about it. “Will everything be a negotiation between us?” 

His brows climb to his hairline and a devilish grin widens his lush mouth. “Do we know any other way to be?” 

“One kiss. Just one kiss.” The words feel like lies as I spout them. 

“That is all I am asking.” He closes his eyes, moaning softly as my fingers explore the thick strands of his black hair. “That feels so incredibly good.” 

I brush my mouth against his, and his eyes pop wide. His hands flatten against my back, pushing me in closer to his tempting body. I can indulge in one kiss. It is my wedding night after all, and my husband is one of the sexiest men alive. It’s not wrong to take this one thing for myself, right? “Just one kiss,” I remind him as our breaths comingle. 

“Only one.” 

Closing my eyes, I lower my mouth to his and descend into sheer bliss. He lets me control it, at first, and I’m surprised at the potent need driving me to take everything as I prod at the seam of his lips with my tongue. He opens instantly, letting my tongue plunge inside his mouth. I reposition myself on his lap, straddling his hips, so I can properly kiss him, and it’s that moment when all bets are off.

New Release – Reckless Dynasty by Tracy Lorraine

 Release Date: June 2

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.
 
My life has been full of half-truths tangled in lies—I’d been to hell and back more times than I could count.
 
But nothing could have prepared me for the fear in her voice, and then the sight of that building going up in flames.
 
After the way I treated her, the way I hurt her, I’d earned that pain back tenfold. I deserved to lose the only bit of light in my dark, twisted life.
 
Neither of us have survived the suffering only to have it end this way and I refuse to believe that our time is done. It can’t be. Because she was made for me—the only good thing that came out of my past. 
 
And the first chance I get, I’m going to make sure she knows exactly what she means to me.
 
No more lies.
No more pretending.
Just the raw, honest truth.
 
I can’t live without her and I’ll spend the rest of my life proving to her that she belongs with me.
That the life we were born into might have left us damaged, but it made us stronger.
 
And when she claims her rightful place amongst us, I’ll be by her side and together we will rule this reckless dynasty.
 
But first we have to survive…

 
Dear Reader,
Reckless Dynasty is the third, and final book in the Reckless trilogy in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series.

Review – Reckless Dynasty by Tracy Lorraine

Reckless Dynasty (Knight's Ridge Empire Book 9) by [Tracy  Lorraine]

Reckless Dynasty; Knight’s Ridge Empire #9
(#3 within a trilogy, #9 within a series)

Publication Date: June 2, 2022

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Soooo super steamy and the action and emotions just keep on coming, Joby is my absolute favorite couple yet!! YES, I’ve totally shipped the name 🙂

Toby and Jodie rekindling is the stuff of my filthy dreams. Hot, passionate, and completely insatiable for one another, oh yeah, it’s my fantasy alright. In between a lot of hot make out sessions, there are still a few bumps along the way, but overall, these two falling in love melts my heart. Toby and Jodie have come through a lot together, but nothing says a lasting relationship better than surviving what they already have and let me mention Toby again, because he has been everything I’d ever hoped for. Sweet, nice and completely dirty in the sheets. Seriously, that boy is perfect and I’m so happy that he and Jodie finally found their HEA.

What a phenomenal trilogy and Joby is topping as one of my all time favorite Lorraine couples. Trilogy after trilogy this entire series just keeps giving me perfection so I’m really excited for the next one because each couple just keeps getting better and better.

Reckless Dynasty is not a standalone as this is the third book in the trilogy and picks up right after Reckless Princess. It’s a sinful treat.

He came looking for Ace, but he found me instead…

Bloody Cruel Psycho, an explosive dark college romance in The Bloody Duet from USA Today bestselling author Lucy Smoke, is available now!

A life for a life … will kill the both of us in the end.

Clover

I know nothing of the Sickness at Eastpoint University. I know only the backroads that slip past the southern beaches and the gators that make their way onto the swamps shores. Until him. Until the killer known as Braxton Smalls finds his way into my stilted trailer on the coast of Port Charlotte.

He came looking for Ace, but he found me instead…

Braxton

I’m a monster. Always have been. Always will be. The only people I’ve ever given a shit about are my boys and their girls. No one hurts my family, and knowing that someone has … and that they’ve gotten away with it plagues me.

Ace Volkov will pay for what he put Avalon through and if I have to use his most precious weakness to draw him out, I will.

She thinks she can bargain for his life with her own, but I mean to show her that there’s nothing I won’t do to see my vengeance through to the end.

Excerpt

“You want to bend me and break me, Braxton Smalls.”

“And you’re going to let me,” he shoots back. “All for him.” He spits out the last word like it’s a curse.

I shake my head. “To an extent, Brax,” I warn him. “You think you have me cornered because I agreed to fuck you in return for you not tearing ass after Ace, but understand this much.” I lean up on my elbows and stare back at him. He grits his teeth as his hands ball into fists. “I’m the swamp rat you picked up. I have not been catered to my whole life like the women you were raised around. I am my own person and when someone pushes too far, I let them know. You have rights over my body, Brax, but that’s as far as it goes.”

Braxton’s arms drop to his sides and before I know it, his hands are around my waist as he rips the towel away from my body and turns, shoving me up against the outside glass of the shower. “You think your body is all you’re giving me, Clover?”

I swallow hard. “Yes.” I turn the small lie into a silent prayer.

His wide mouth curves into a vicious smile. “Then you have nothing to fear.”

Review – Vengeance of a Mafia Queen by Siobhan Davis

60728629. sy475

Vengeance of a Mafia Queen
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: May 31, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Mafia/Suspense Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Vengeance of a Mafia Queen starts off super steamy, then instantly turns super dark and the story never stops on this rollercoaster spectrum. It’s a mind blowing ride that hits all the emotions!

Catarina and Massimo are super angsty, hot, witty, full of tension and steam. This entire story is fast paced from beginning to end and I adored Massimo with his easy-go-lucky personality which fit to perfectly to Catarina’s high strung one. They balanced each other out while never breaking that ever growing chemistry.

Catarina is focused, smart, sharp, and always five steps ahead of what she wants to achieve. That is until Massimo steps into her life. He throws her off like no one has in her entire life. She is juggling a lot of balls and she can’t allow something like  – feelings – to mess up her ultimate goal.

From the beginning, Massimo is all in and Catarina is the woman he wants. Catarina just isn’t on same page with wanting him back. Their relationship is kind of adorable because of this dynamic where he’s totally obsessed with her and she’s stoic and fighting him at every turn. It’s really easy to fall in love with Massimo – who knew a made man could be so sweetly-likeable?

While there are some dark topics, after all this is a dark, mafia book, it’s all relevant to the main theme of the story. What I love is that Catarina takes no prisoners and doesn’t back down just because she’s a woman working in a very male dominated world. She doesn’t apologize for her methods, nor does she allow men to pick up slack because she’s female. I loved her strong character.

On the flip side, I adored Massimo and his willingness to concede to Catarina, knowing how strong she is, but also to take control when she clearly needed the down time. He could read her better than she could read herself sometimes. He’s totally obsessed with her take-charge personality, which is perfect so I’ll say it again, they are a really great match.

Vengeance of a Mafia Queen is delicious on every level. It takes place in the Mazzone mafia world and while reading those books would enhance this books reading experience, it’s not necessary to read them prior to this book as it can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:
Falling for the enemy was never part of my plan…

Losing my innocence at thirteen, in the most brutal way, changed me. My kidnapper stole my childhood and tried to break me. The knowledge my father orchestrated the entire situation hardened my heart, and instead of grieving his death, I celebrated it.

One down. Many more to go.

My burning need for revenge has only grown over the years, keeping me focused on my goals and enabling my rise to power.

Made men are weak. A pretty face and the promise of a good time easily distracts them.

Now, I’m in charge.

Men bow before me.

Except for him—the brother of my abductor. Massimo fights me every step of the way, but I’m not about to let the explosive chemistry between us deter me from my chosen path. His family is my enemy. He is my enemy, even if he doesn’t know it yet.

I won’t stop until all those who wronged me are punished.

By the time they realize I’m coming, it will be too late.

They tried to take everything from me.

But where they failed, I will succeed.

Unless he becomes my weakness.

💕🖤 𝐍𝐎𝐖 𝐀𝐕𝐀𝐈𝐋𝐀𝐁𝐋𝐄 🖤💕

𝐒𝐞𝐱𝐲 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐬𝐭 by Rachel Jonas & Nikki Thorne is LIVE and FREE in Kindle Unlimited!  Don’t miss this enemies to lovers, mafia pregnancy romance!

ONE CLICK: https://books2read.com/KoCP6 

BLURB

Ricky Ruiz—ruthless kingpin, reclusive heir, the one man I can’t seem to outrun.

Rumors buzz when a pic of me buying a pregnancy test goes viral. This wouldn’t be such a big deal if, roughly one month ago, I wasn’t also spotted with the new top-dog of Cypress Pointe’s most notorious crime family.

The same crime family my father dedicated his entire law enforcement career trying to bring to their knees.

Ricky inherited the money, the houses, the cars, but he also inherited the danger. He sleeps with one eye open and one finger on the trigger. So, when my name starts popping up alongside his on social media, the beast awakens, convinced there’s now a target on my back, too.

He’s not big on patience or subtlety, which I realize when I come home to find him waiting in a dark corner of my apartment, in no mood for a debate. He’s on a mission to collect what he believes is his.

Me.

My father warned me about the Ruiz family. If I’d listened, I might not be locked in a room inside Ricky’s home, I’d still have the job he decided to quit for me, and I’d still have my freedom.

I have no plans to be Ricky’s caged bird. Not even with an army of street soldiers at his disposal. He’d beg to differ. According to him, it’s just a matter of time before I give in and admit what he claims to have known from the beginning.

That I’m already his.

Trigger Warning: Ricky lives up to his reputation, so if you’re sensitive to excessive, explicit violence, you might want to pass this one up. There are also situations that may be triggering for those who have experienced pregnancy-related trauma. Reader discretion is advised.

Bloody Cruel Psycho; Sick Boys #5, Bloody Duet #1
(#1within a duet, #5 within a series)

Publication Date: May 20, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/New Adult/Dark/Anti-Hero/Enemies-to-Lovers Romance

Author: Lucy Smoke

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dark and not for the faint of heart, but I like dipping my toes into this kind decadent treat from time to time and Bloody Cruel Psycho fed my twisted heart.

Braxton Smalls is full of darkness and revenge. He sets out to gain leverage over the man he’s searching for by kidnapping his sister, Clover. Braxton didn’t account for his kidnapee being mouthy, fighting back, or inciting his monster’s lust, so when she offers up herself as a deal in place of her brother, Braxton’s monster agrees.

Clover is no wallflower. She too has an inner monster, so when Braxton comes to take her she doesn’t hold back. She never expected to feel her inner darkness swirl to life as much as it does around him, it seems to crave him, but could they be too toxic for one another to last beyond the deal they made?

While this is my first step into the Sick Boys world and it is a connected story, this is still Braxton and Clover’s very own tale. I was never lost as the other characters came in, nor as backstories flowed in around them. Lucy brilliantly pieced this as a standalone, well technically a duet, and while reading, I was never the wiser that other books came before this. I loved how the other characters flowed in and out, pushing and prodding the main characters along. Brilliant anti-heros, the bunch of them.

Since this is book one in a duet, there is a mighty cliffhanger. I can hardly wait to dive back into to this twisted, dark world to find out what happens next to Braxton and Clover.

Synopsis:
A life for a life … will kill the both of us in the end.

Clover

I know nothing of the Sickness at Eastpoint University. I know only the backroads that slip past the southern beaches and the gators that make their way onto the swamps shores. Until him. Until the killer known as Braxton Smalls finds his way into my stilted trailer on the coast of Port Charlotte.

Braxton

Sexy Beast; Kings of Cypress Pointe #6
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 20, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Secret Baby Romance

Author: Rachel Jonas and Nikki Thorne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Step back into Cypress Pointe with #SeXyBeAsT and his Beauty. I was sad to finish this book, but it was a fantastic way to end the Kings of Cypress Pointe reign!!

Ricky is protective, loyal, a bit obsessive, with a dash of crazy, and these are all great traits for running his empire, but when Dez is confronted by him after her picture goes viral after buying a pregnancy test, she isn’t enjoying some of those traits. At least not at first. Could this beauty actually fall for the beast?

Ricky is fiercely loyal to family. It’s the one trait that has led him to where he is now and the current path to Dez. Living the dangerous life he leads Ricky didn’t think he’d actually have the chance to become a father, so when he finds out his one night with Dez makes that impossible dream possible, he isn’t about to chance letting Dez out of his sight. He lives in a dangerous world and if he could he’d wrap her in a bubble wrap until his child is born and then possibly put the both of them in it afterwards. Ricky is much more smexy god than beast, at least around Dez, but she does struggle morality wise when coming to terms with who the baby daddy is.

While their love story isn’t a typical fairytale, full of champagne and roses…it’s more like murder, guns, and the mafia, but everyone falls in love under different circumstances, am I right? But seriously, Ricky is such a dichotomy of a man and I loved him for it. Ruthless and a true mafia king when he needs to be, but completely opposite when he’s with Dez where he’s sweet and gentle which made him totally swoony. Does he play on the right side of morality…well there is always another side to every dark tale, just ask Dez.

Lastly, yes, there are cameos from past Cypress Pointe characters, of course Pandora doesn’t let anyone rest, but could her days be coming to an end?? Messing with the mafia, Pandora is pushing buttons she may not want to push. I mean Ricky is no longer a kid chasing after his ex-girlfriend, but now a hot, hot baby daddy. Yum.

Synopsis:
Ricky Ruiz—ruthless kingpin, reclusive heir, the one man I can’t seem to outrun.

Rumors buzz when a pic of me buying a pregnancy test goes viral. This wouldn’t be such a big deal if, roughly one month ago, I wasn’t also spotted with the new top-dog of Cypress Pointe’s most notorious crime family.

The same crime family my father dedicated his entire law enforcement career trying to bring to their knees.

Ricky inherited the money, the houses, the cars, but he also inherited the danger. He sleeps with one eye open and one finger on the trigger. So, when my name starts popping up alongside his on social media, the beast awakens, convinced there’s now a target on my back, too.

He’s not big on patience or subtlety, which I realize when I come home to find him waiting in a dark corner of my apartment, in no mood for a debate. He’s on a mission to collect what he believes is his.

Me.

My father warned me about the Ruiz family. If I’d listened, I might not be locked in a room inside Ricky’s home, I’d still have the job he decided to quit for me, and I’d still have my freedom.

I have no plans to be Ricky’s caged bird. Not even with an army of street soldiers at his disposal. He’d beg to differ. According to him, it’s just a matter of time before I give in and admit what he claims to have known from the beginning.

That I’m already his.
*
Trigger Warning: Ricky lives up to his reputation, so if you’re sensitive to excessive, explicit violence, you might want to pass this one up. There are also situations that may be triggering for those who have experienced pregnancy-related trauma. Reader discretion is advised.
*
SEXY BEAST is a full-length standalone novel (95k+ words). This book can absolutely be read on its own, but for the sake of flow and clarity, you could start with THE GOLDEN BOYS (a bully romance trilogy within this series).

Are you into hot romances with alpha-male crime bosses? Then, you’ll love getting to know Ricky Ruiz.
Due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

Review – Ruthless Kingdom by Becca Steele and C. Lymari

57310922. sy475

Ruthless Kingdom; Boneyard Kings #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: May 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Reverse Harem/Secret Society/Bully Romance

Author: Becca Steele and C. Lymari

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I loved everything about this dark story, it contained steam, mystery, brotherhood, and so much more.

Picking up right where the big cliffhanger left me biting my nails, Ruthless Kingdom takes off running. Major players in the poison filled city are finally unmasked as pieces click into place of a major conspiracy.

Saint, Mateo, Callum, and Everly’s bond gets stronger than ever as they work to bring down the darkness that has engulfed the city and their own personal lives.

I loved how everything pieced together and played out while they strengthened their relationship. No stone was left unturned and I was extremely satisfied with the way this trilogy ended.

While Cal and Mateo seemed to soften as the story went along, the more I thought about it, I think we got to know more of their true selves. As Everly uncovered more about them, the hard men they displayed to everyone else was just a mask that they eventually took off just for her.

Now, Saint is an entirely different matter. He’s a goofball and that never changes, but his personality of self destruction dies down once he begins to care for Everly. His comic relief is the perfect mix for this dark tale and I adore Saint for keeping true to himself along with always wearing his huge heart on his sleeve.

The four really connected when they let go of their hurt, grief, anger, and sadness. Everything they needed was with each other, allowing them to move forward and truly begin their future together.

Synopsis:
The conclusion to the Boneyard Kings trilogy…

Bad things happened in threes, but they turned out to be a blessing in disguise. There was no escape from the Boneyard Kings, but now we’re on the same side.

Our enemies came, but we didn’t let them break us.
They thought they could take us down, but they underestimated our strength.

Now, three rivals stand against three kings and their queen, and they’re about to see just how ruthless our kingdom can be.
The game of chess is in play, and only one side can claim victory.
Who will be the one to call checkmate?

Ruthless Kingdom is a reverse harem romance with mature themes. This is book three in the Boneyard Kings series, and cannot be read as a standalone.

Blog Tour – Reckless Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Release Date: May 5

The moment I discovered his lie, everything I thought I knew about him was destroyed in an instant.

I thought I knew pain.

I thought I knew grief.

I knew nothing.

And nothing could compare to the moment Toby ripped my heart right out of my chest. Confirming all my worst fears.

Shattering the very foundation my life has been built on.

It was all an act.

A sick and twisted game.

He’s nothing more than a monster.

Deception is his weapon.

And now I’m his victim.

Rock bottom is a familiar place, and once again I’m trying to drag myself out of the pits of despair.

But fate is an evil master, and before long I find myself with no other place to turn… but him.

He might be cruel.

Reckless.

Dangerous.

But I also know that he’ll do anything to right his wrongs.

Despite my tattered heart, and my better judgment, I know he’s still trying to prove to me that he’s not all bad. That the sweet guy I fell so hard for really does exists.

But will it be enough?

Read Kay’s Review: Brutal Vows

Excerpt

2
Spider
I get only a glimpse of the woman in the window before the curtains fall back into place and she disappears, but the image of her is seared onto my retinas.
Dark hair, red lips, olive skin.
A black, low-cut dress.
Acres of cleavage.
And eyes that glittered silver in the afternoon sun like the flash of coins at the bottom of a wishing well.
She can’t be Liliana, the lass I’m here to meet. I’ve seen pictures of her. She has a sweet, innocent face. A shy, lovely smile.
The woman in the window looks like she’d only smile if she were slitting your throat.
Mindful of the armed guards, I say in Gaelic to Kieran, “I thought the lass’s mother died?”
Standing beside me, he follows my gaze and looks up at the blank window.
“Aye. Why?”
“Who else lives here?”
He shrugs. “Dunno. From the size of the bloody place, probably a thousand people.”
She’s not a servant, that much I know. There wasn’t a hint of servitude in those flashing eyes.
She looked more like a warlord about to lead an army of soldiers into battle.
“This way,” says the guard nearest to me. He nods toward an arched opening in the brick wall that leads from the circular driveway into an interior courtyard.
Dismissing the thought of the mystery woman, I button my suit jacket and follow behind the guard as he leads Kieran and me away from the car. The other guard walks behind us. We’re led through the lushly landscaped courtyard to a set of enormous carved oak doors, flanked on either side by towering marble columns.
The main house looms over us, three sprawling stories of beige limestone with elaborate balustrades and scrolled iron balconies, topped by a line of Roman centurion statues gazing down at us from a ledge on the red-tiled roof.
Inside the main foyer, the décor becomes even more ostentatious.
Naked cherubs frolic with hairy satyrs and woodland nymphs in colorful frescoes on the walls. Instead of one drop-crystal chandelier overhead, there are three. The floor is black marble, the carved mahogany furniture is edged in gilt, and my eyes are starting to water from the kaleidoscope glare of stained-glass windows.
Under his breath, Kieran says, “Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Looks like Liberace hurled his lunch all over the bloody place.”
He’s right. It’s fucking awful.
I have to force myself not to turn around and walk out.
“Ah, Mr. Quinn!”
I turn to my right. A man approaches with his hands spread open in greeting.
He’s fit, of average height, and somewhere around forty. His dark hair is slicked back with pomade. Wearing a navy blue pinstripe suit I can tell is custom made, a powder blue tie with a diamond tie pin, a chunky diamond watch, and a gold pinky ring on each hand, he oozes wealth, privilege, and power.
His cologne reaches me before he does.
His smile is blinding.
I hate him on sight.
“Mr. Caruso, I presume.”
He grabs one of my hands in both of his and pumps it up and down like he’s a political candidate campaigning for my vote.
“It’s a pleasure to finally meet you. Welcome to my home.”
“Thank you. It’s a pleasure to meet you as well.”
He hasn’t stopped grinning or shaking my hand.
Ten more seconds of this shite, and I’ll break those Chiclet teeth of his.
“This is my associate, Mr. Byrne.” I extract my hand from Caruso’s death grip and gesture to Kieran, who inclines his head respectfully.
“Sir.”
“Mr. Byrne, welcome. And please, both of you, call me Gianni. I prefer if we’re all on a first name basis, don’t you?”
I’d rather blind myself with acid, you wanker.
Kieran politely offers his name. I offer nothing. There’s an awkward pause while Caruso waits, but he gets the hint and suggests we retire to his study to speak in private.
After what feels like a death march through miles of echoing corridors, we arrive at the study. It’s probably larger than the law library at Notre Dame. We sit across from Caruso in a pair of leather chairs so uncomfortable, they had to be designed by sadists.
I haven’t been here ten minutes, and I’m already regretting the fuck out of this.
Until she walks in the door.
Dark hair, red lips, olive skin.
A black, low-cut dress.
Acres of cleavage.
Not only cleavage, but long legs and an hourglass figure that would make any man stupid with lust.
If he wasn’t too busy being turned to stone by the ice in her eyes, that is. I’ve never seen an attractive serial killer, but I bet this is exactly what she’d look like.
