Review – The Sinner by Shantel Tessier

The Sinner; The Ritual series #2
(Standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark/Taboo/Forbidden/Secret Society Romance

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Break every rule, cross every line and jump into the taboo world of The Lords. This book was intense with a capital I!!

Walking the dark line in this world means opening yourself to the devil and the devil has his eye on his own personal demon. I’d like to call Sin and Elli toxic, but their relationship is their own kink and probably the only thing non-toxic in their dark world. Don’t worry it makes sense.

This book is heavy and super dark. Definitely Shantel’s darkest to date, where she delves into lots of morally gray territories. Please make sure to read her TW’s if this kind of book makes you pause. Personally, I love reading how characters back themselves into corners, even the kind with no moral codes to speak of, because sooner or later that character will need to get themselves out of that corner and when they do those slippery morals are so fun to watch as they spin them around. That anticipation, that rush of what they will do, is fun to read.

Elli and Sin cross so many boundaries, it could make a reader cringe, and in a normal world, for every action their should be a consequence, but this dark world doesn’t have normal consequences and like I said above you either like this dark world or you don’t. Sin has no f…cares to give. Like, seriously none. Well, maybe one, Elli is his. His little demon. Aside from that get out of his way.

I love delving into the darkness that Shantel creates every-single-time. It’s a thrill and fascinating ride. The Sinner did not disappoint.

Synopsis:
An all-new dark standalone romance from the USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author, Shantel Tessier

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.

𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑺𝒊𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒓 is set in the same world as Shantel’s top 50 bestseller 𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑹𝒊𝒕𝒖𝒂𝒍.

Review – Twisted Secrets by Rachel Leigh

Twisted Secrets; Bastards of Boulder Cove #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Antihero/Suspense/New Adult/Dark/Bully/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
There were so many secrets that unraveled, one after another, leading right up to a twisted ending!

Twisted Secrets really was the perfect title for this perfectly twisted finale. Not only were there multiple secrets revealed, but there was also twisted up feelings, twisted up friendships, suspense and mayhem was also twisted up in this gloriously page turning finale. Everything was brilliantly tied up and I was spectacularly happy with twisted up ending.

Whew…I wonder if I can fit the words; twists and secrets, a few more times in this review??

As for Scar and her three men…well, I’ll leave with this…they go through a lot in this final book. Neo doesn’t make anything easy on anyone, but as we’ve come to know, that’s just Neo. However, the darker the antihero, the deeper we all seem to fall, so Neo gives quite a ride to say the least. As for Crew and Jagger, they get their moments too, because this wouldn’t be a finale if they remained a silent doormat.

Twisted Secrets is twisted, there are a lot of turns and secrets that I never saw coming, and this last book is stuffed full of emotions, which I don’t want to say threw me, but it was another twist.

This entire trilogy was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved diving into this dark, depraved world and would totally recommend to anyone who loves reading morally gray characters.

Synopsis:

The Lawless have been many things:

My friends,

My enemies,

And now my lovers.

All but one…

Neo Saint—my villain dressed in leather with the body of a god and a heart made of stone.

He blames me for his misfortunes.

Wants me to feel his pain.

It’s time he learns I’m not who he thinks I am.

Someone is out there,

opening old wounds and creating new scars.

It won’t be easy bringing these twisted secrets to light,

but it’s the only chance we have of freedom before the darkness consumes us all.

The games might not be over,

but I’m no longer playing alone.

This series must be read in order for the best enjoyment:

Review – The Wild by Penelope Black

The Wild; The Wren #2
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: November 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/Mafia/Dark/Reverse Harem/Suspense Romance

Author: Penelope Black

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The second half of this duet is fast paced and it delves deeper into the relationships between Maeve and the Santorini brothers.

The secret is out, well, I guess it wasn’t really a secret, Maeve just wasn’t aware that all three men circling her life were actually related and neither were the brothers aware that the woman who’d bewitched them was one and the same. Plot twist!

As the opening of The Wild begins we pick up from the wedding where Maeve was sent to marry another man that was not any of the Santorini brothers, but they also happened to be sent to that very same wedding, but for very different reasons. What better way than to take out an opposing mafia family than at a family gathering, but things go a bit sideways for all of them. From this point on the lives of Maeve and the Santorini brothers turn upside down and the ability to choose between Romeo, Nico or Tommy is impossible especially when she can’t pinpoint which brother is the father of her baby. Go Maeve – why choose, take them all!

This entire duet is a pretty quick read, but it may have just felt like that because I couldn’t put it down for moment. I will note – I did feel like the ending of this particular book felt just a tad rushed, which is why I rated this a 4.5 stars overall, but I really did love the entire duet overall, especially the King sisters. They are #amazinggirlpower, tough, and never backed down from a challenge.

Read Kay’s Review: Danger’s Heir

Keep reading for a look inside Danger’s Heir!

Chapter One

Rome wouldn’t burn again if he could help it.

Antonio Starabba slid into his desk chair with a sigh. He would have stifled the sigh if there’d been anyone else in the room besides his husband and wife. Karl was working, papers spread out on the low table in the center of the small seating area. Leila was occupied with something less casual. She was disassembling and reassembling a sniper rifle with alarming quickness.

Antonio wasn’t one for guns, but his wife was sexy in a very dangerous way while holding a large gun. No one but himself and Karl ever got to see her with it, since on those occasions that she reactivated her expertise as a sniper, her targets never saw her.

“You don’t have to stay,” Antonio said in Italian. His spouses were now fluent in the language of Antonio’s home territory.

“Do you want us to leave?” Karl didn’t look up.

“Never.”

“Then we’ll stay for quiet moral support.”

“I’m not going to be quiet.” Leila smiled. “I’ll keep practicing. One of them might recognize the sound.”

“Is it a good idea to threaten the fleet admiral?” Now Karl did look up.

“I’m not threatening him.” There was a sinister clack as she popped a piece into place. “This is for those morons in Castile.”

Antonio grunted his agreement with that statement even as he turned on his computer. It would take a few minutes for the secure video chat to come online.

“How’s Milo?” Karl asked.

Asking about Milo Moretti wasn’t the subject jump it might have seemed. Milo’s wife was the flashpoint for their current crisis, through no fault of her own. Several months ago, Dr. Talya Maes had been kidnapped by the mafia. She’d been held prisoner alongside human trafficking victims, but she’d been taken to help the Camorra with a very different sort of crime. They’d wanted Talya to create a bio-weapon. A drug that would turn people into caution-less super soldiers.

The entire Talya situation had been a mess from beginning to end. First because despite the fact that Talya was a member of the Masters’ Admiralty, Europe’s oldest still-functioning secret society, no one had noticed she’d gone missing. The society was divided geographically into nine territories, whose borders were based on maps and empires far older than modern Europe. It just so happened that Talya had lived along one of the borders, which cut through modern-day Belgium, and each territory thought she was a member of the other.

Antonio had publicly expressed disapproval with the admirals of France and Germany for failing Talya, but secretly he felt sorry for them. Being the head of a territory wasn’t easy, or fun. Antonio had never wanted to be a territory leader. Never wanted to be admiral of Rome, which encompassed Italy, all the coastline of the Adriatic sea, and the major islands in the Mediterranean. However, that was exactly what he’d become after his father, the previous admiral had been severely wounded in a bombing. Antonio had been named acting admiral while his father recovered, and eventually his father had stepped down. Antonio had expected his father to resume the admiralship, but his father’s long recovery, coupled with his pride at seeing Antonio holding the position of admiral, had pushed him to retire.

The position of admiral of Rome should have gone to his sister, Sophia. Instead she was now living in England, both the territory and the modern-day country, and married to two good men, including England’s admiral. She would have made a brilliant admiral if fate, and the previous fleet admiral, hadn’t intervened. But her leadership and skills hadn’t been wasted. When the current fleet admiral, Eric Ericsson, whom Antonio was about to meet with, had taken an unplanned, unsanctioned vacation, Sophia was the one he’d left in charge. Sophia, who’d been taught to lead, negotiate, and manipulate since she could talk, was also the lead on building a relationship with the Americans, but that was a separate issue.

Talya Maes’ months of imprisonment by the Camorra ended when a Spanish member was also kidnapped, and one of Antonio’s security officers, Milo Moretti, helped orchestrate her rescue. Milo had seen Talya during that op and vowed to return to free her even before anyone knew that she was a member of the Masters’ Admiralty.

And if the rescue had been the end of Talya, Milo, and Henri’s story, Antonio wouldn’t be having this meeting.

His computer dinged, signaling that the meeting was connecting.

“Hold on, let me get back to the part that makes the scary noise,” Leila muttered, quickly disassembling the long rifle.

“You’re terrifying sometimes.” Karl murmured, still engrossed in his work.

“Thank you.”

“You’re welcome, geliefde.”

Antonio smiled at his spouses, but quickly blanked his expression as his camera turned on.

Three video windows appeared, including his own. In the first, two men sat side by side in a dim concrete room. From the intel Antonio had on Castile-–the territory that contained modern-day Spain and Portugal–-Antonio assumed they were calling from the bunker-like ops headquarters in the basement of one of the territory-owned buildings.

Admiral Santiago De Leon was older and, while fairly new in his position, he was a powerful admiral. The man beside him, Vicente Coval, was also powerful, but in a dark, deadly way that befit a security minister. Each territory was ruled by three people, with the admiral as the main power. However, an admiral could be overruled by his vice admiral and security minister. The trinity checks and balances system was meant to stop any one admiral from abusing their power, though as Hungary could attest to, that didn’t always work.

The leadership was a trinity, as were the relationships among members. The defining characteristic of the Masters’ Admiralty was arranged marriages between three people. Antonio had grown up in the society and, to him, the idea of a relationship with just two people felt…unbalanced and odd.

The third window held the fourth attendee of this meeting. The fleet admiral was the leader of the society. Not part of any territory, the fleet admiral’s power was checked not by a trinity leadership model, but by the nine territory admirals.

Antonio examined Eric and acknowledged to himself that if the time ever came that they needed to move against the fleet admiral, he’d have Leila shoot him from a distance.

For a moment there was heavy silence, then Eric spoke.

“I was going to sing.”

Antonio sighed to himself, Leila smothered a snort, and Karl looked up, his glasses making him look ridiculously sexy.

“Sing, Fleet Admiral?” Santiago asked with a quick smile.

“Have you seen The Sound of Music? Remember that ‘problem like Maria’ song?” They’d been speaking French, but he switched to English. “I was going to make it ‘problem like Rodrigo’ but I couldn’t get the verses to fit. Hard to rhyme stuff with mafia.”

“The Camorra,” Antonio said. “Not just the mafia.”

Eric leaned back in his chair, seeming to consider. “No, I don’t think that makes the rhyming easier. English is a ridiculous language.”

That they could all agree on, since both Castellano and Italian were clearly superior. Antonio wasn’t sure about Eric’s native Danish, but Leila said it was a beautiful language.

“Rodrigo is not a problem,” Vicente said, cutting through the light moment.

“Yes, he is,” Antonio countered. “He’s clearly defected. Understandable, but not an excuse.”

During the prep to save Talya, it was discovered that Rodrigo was the secret son of a Camorra don. That same don was holding Talya Maes, so Rodrigo had been sent in to the mafia–it could hardly be called undercover since it was his real identity–to rescue her. Talya was safe, finally, but Rodrigo had refused to back out.

Antonio felt sympathy for the man, but it didn’t change the facts. “He’s given up his–”

“He’s given up nothing. He is still one of us. Still loyal,” Vicente insisted.

Antonio understood the other man’s stout defense. As security minister of Castile, Vicente was the leader of that territory’s security officers. While law and order within the society was overseen by the knights, headed by the vice admiral, the quiet, dangerous work was the purview of the security officers. Antonio had been a security officer before being forced into the position of admiral. And Rodrigo, the subject of today’s meeting, was…had been…a security officer for Castile.

“He kidnapped…re-kidnapped…Dr. Maes,” Antonio said. “His job was to rescue her, which he did, and he should have stopped there.”

“She came to no harm,” Vicente countered. “If you’d spoken to Talya, as I have, you would know that Rodrigo didn’t hurt her.”

“I have spoken to Dr. Maes, as she is now a member of my territory, and married to one of my security officers.”

Milo was more than just a security officer. Milo was Antonio’s friend, but he wouldn’t disclose anything so personal in this venue.

“If you object to the burning of your territory, that was your man, not Rodrigo.”

After Rodrigo kidnapped Dr. Maes, Milo and Henri Fortin had chased him across France and Italy. As they pursued, they waged a small war. Billionaire Henri had attacked the Camorra on paper, buying up companies and taking control of ports they used. Milo had been more direct–he’d set fire to every Camorra property he could find. Privately, Antonio had asked Milo what the fuck he’d been thinking, as all that property damage was risky and drew attention. Milo had replied that Antonio should be grateful he’d chosen fire and not C4.

“Did you fiddle?” Eric asked.

Antonio’s eye twitched. That joke was getting old, even if he himself had been thinking something along those lines. “I’m no Nero, and this isn’t about the fires. It’s about Rodrigo. He’s his father’s son.”

“No,” Vicente insisted. “He never hurt Talya. And his plan worked. The Camorra think her drug isn’t viable. The kidnapping is regrettable, but there was no lasting harm from it.”

Leila and Karl both stiffened. It was slight, but Antonio caught it. They’d both been taken by a serial killer. Kidnapped and tortured, they no longer had nightmares, but what had happened would always be a part of them.

“If you believe that, then I pity your wife,” Antonio snarled. Gabriella, the Spanish heiress whose kidnapping had exposed Talya’s captivity, was Vicente’s spouse.

Vicente’s expression, already cold, froze.

“Antonio,” Eric warned.

“If he’s ignoring how his wife suffered–”

“Do not speak about my wife.”

“–then she deserves better.”

“Admiral Starabba,” Eric barked. “Stop.”

Strangely, Vicente seemed to have calmed with Antonio’s final words. “She does deserve better,” he said. “Both of my spouses do.”

“No more talking about anyone’s wives,” Eric declared.

Leila snapped two pieces of the rifle together, the noise loud and sharp.

Vicente’s eyes narrowed. He clearly recognized that sound.

On screen, Eric put his elbows on his desk and his head in his hands. “Hej, Leila.”

“Hej flådeadmiral,” she called out.

“I thought this meeting was private.” Santiago raised a brow.

“They’re here because Leila is the one who saw the article,” Antonio said.

There was silence before Eric lifted his head from his hands. “Okay, I’ll bite. What article?”

Antonio grabbed his mouse. “I told you that Rodrigo is lost to us. He belongs to the Camorra.”

“No,” Vicente insisted. “There’s a reason he’s still undercover. He is a good operative, and we need to trust him.”

Abruptly tired, Antonio shared his screen, showing everyone else the newspaper article Leila had seen. Antonio half expected that maybe Vicente already knew about it. It would make sense for him to have alerts set up to notify him of any mention of Rodrigo. But then again, he probably had alerts set up to notify him when police reports or crime information with Rodrigo’s name appeared.

He probably didn’t have an alert set up for the society pages.

“What am I looking at?” Eric said.

Antonio opened a second document, which had the small announcement translated into both French and English.

“Oh shit.” Eric sat back. “Rodrigo is getting married?”

“Rodrigo is getting married,” Antonio confirmed. “To a mafia princess.”

2022 New Release/Release Day, LGBTQA+, Mafia/Gang/Secret Society Romance, Suspense/Intrigue Romance, Year of Releases - 2022, Year of Reviews - 2022

New Release – Danger’s Heir by Mari Carr and Lila Dubois

She fell in love, got married…and it was all a lie.

Danger’s Heir, a sizzling mafia romance full of twists and turns from New York Times bestselling author Mari Carr and award-winning author Lila Dubois is now available!

They expected a mafia princess, but when Rodrigo meets the woman his father is forcing him to marry, he realizes Giada is much more than she seems. Smart and dangerous, she’s the kind of woman he could love…too bad everything he’s about to tell her is a lie.
Casson knows Rodrigo is in too deep. Rodrigo’s undercover mission as the heir to a powerful Camorra don should have ended long ago, but now he’s engaged to the daughter of another dangerous man, and it’s Casson’s job to pull him out.

There’s just one problem. Giada.
She’s nothing either man expected, and everything they want. The last thing they expect is for Giada to invite both of them to her bed.
As the wedding day looms closer, and enemies close in, the line between what’s real and what’s a lie becomes blurred, and Rodrigo and Casson have to decide if love is enough. And if they should tell her the truth.
Unfortunately, there’s someone else waiting in the wings to make sure they never say “I do.”

Review – Danger’s Heir by Mari Carr and Lila Dubois

Danger's Heir (Masters' Admiralty #9: Mafia #3)

Danger’s Heir; Masters’ Admiralty #9
(#9 within a series)

Publication Date: November 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Menage/Suspense/Mafia/Secret Society/Arranged Marriage Romance

Author: Mari Carr and Lila Dubois

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Great chemistry, and suspense right out of the gate! The physical chemistry, between the ménage, just sparked and then the intense storyline…this was a great story!

Rodrigo was immersed in his father’s world, a world that twisted his gut and repulsed him daily, but he also knew he was the only one to get close enough to eventually shut it down. However, because he was undercover, his contacts on the outside didn’t know if he’d turned and because of that the MA send in Casson to pull him out.

When Casson gets there and he hears Rodrigo’s side he stays, as Casson’s bodyguard, meeting his newly arranged fiancée – Giada, and it didn’t take long for these three to practically light my kindle on fire.

Working together, was heaven, but also torture, because both Casson and Rodrigo were keeping a lot of secrets from one another. While they were all developing feelings and really wished they’d have a happy ending, the only ending was without the woman they both wanted.

A truly exciting and, at times, heartbreaking addition to the Master’s Admiralty series. I loved how spirited Giada was. She never backed down and owned her powerful thinking and determination while living in a male dominated world. A perfect woman for Rodrigo and Casson.

Synopsis:
She fell in love, got married…and it was all a lie.

They expected a mafia princess, but when Rodrigo meets the woman his father is forcing him to marry, he realizes Giada is much more than she seems. Smart and dangerous, she’s the kind of woman he could love…too bad everything he’s about to tell her is a lie.

Casson knows Rodrigo is in too deep. Rodrigo’s undercover mission as the heir to a powerful Camorra don should have ended long ago, but now he’s engaged to the daughter of another dangerous man, and it’s Casson’s job to pull him out.

There’s just one problem. Giada.

She’s nothing either man expected, and everything they want. The last thing they expect is for Giada to invite both of them to her bed.

As the wedding day looms closer, and enemies close in, the line between what’s real and what’s a lie becomes blurred, and Rodrigo and Casson have to decide if love is enough. And if they should tell her the truth.

Unfortunately, there’s someone else waiting in the wings to make sure they never say “I do.”

Review – Wild Saint by Luna Kayne

Wild Saint (Vicious Empire, #3)

Wild Saint; Vicious Empire #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Dark//Suspense/Intrigue/Second Chance Romance

Author: Luna Kayne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Each book in this series just gets better and better!! I’m so blown away with how each book in the Vicious Empire has given me pieces of the overall puzzle which has then lead me masterfully to the next bread crumb without giving too much away. Not only has it kept me interested, but it’s kept me on the edge of my seat and completely captivated! Plus, the romance has been brilliant!

From the very beginning of Wild Saint, this book was non-stop action. Dagen and Nyla barely had a moment to catch their breaths while they were trying to survive in the wilderness after a plane crash and on the run from hitmen. This book has it all!! Action, adventure, chemistry, heat, intrigue, and second chances. It was like stepping into a romantic-adventure movie.

Their story, while full of adventure, is also sweet with the knowledge of the daughter they share between them. I won’t say much, because it should be enjoyed as a reader, but with each book it’s easy to see that family is important between these brothers and as each man has fallen in love it’s wonderful to see how easily they open their hearts to those they hold close. That is what I found sweet with Dagen and Nyla in those tender moments and appreciated in those few down times between all of the action that happened in this story.

While this book did spend more time away from the other Saint brothers than the previous two, mainly due to secluded time in the wilderness, the driving plot that has carried over from the beginning is still there and will continue into the fourth book.  This is a series and should be read in order for the best reading enjoyment. The pinnacle is coming and I can hardly wait for the next book so it will all to come together.

Synopsis:
SHE BEAT HIM AT HIS OWN GAME ONCE.
NOW IT’S ROUND TWO,
AND THIS TIME THEY’RE PLAYING DIRTY.

DAGEN SAINT
Five years ago, Nyla stole two million dollars from me and disappeared.
Now she’s resurfaced, and I’m determined to settle her debt…one way or another.
Hiking in the mountains in my underwear while being hunted by hitmen wasn’t something I thought we’d be doing when I woke up this morning, yet here we are.
If we can settle our issues and work together, we just might make it out alive—if we don’t kill each other first.

NYLA JENSEN
I conned the con five years ago, but he took something I wasn’t prepared to leave behind—my heart.
Now I’m stranded in the wilderness with the one person who has every reason to hate me, and we have no choice but to work together, or we’re dead.
It turns out surviving the elements and the men who are searching for us is the easy part.
The hard part is being close to Dagen, coming clean, and looking him in the eye. Those same eyes I see every time I look at the daughter he doesn’t know we have.

* Wild Saint is the third book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series and should be read in order.

Cruel Saint (Vicious Empire, #1) Brutal Saint (Vicious Empire, #2) Savage Saint (Vicious Empire, #4)

By Tia Louise

Can you love what you can’t touch?

No touching.

It’s the only rule in this business, and trust me, with my money and power, “hands off” is not a problem.

I don’t need the women I employ to satisfy my needs…

Until her.

She’s different than the other girls, innocent, intoxicating, impossibly seductive.

I can’t take my eyes off her, and it’s not long before hot looks turn to hotter touches.

I’m the boss, after all, I call the shots.

And nothing’s more fun than breaking the rules.

I came to this country to pursue my dream… but it was a lie, a scam that quickly fell apart.

Desperate, I took the only job I could with no work visa.

They promised no one would know.

They promised no touching.

Until I saw him.

Dark scruff shading an arrogant grin, lean muscles stretching expensive fabric, eyes like twilight sending electricity from my stomach to my toes.

He’s my boss, but the way he watches makes me do dirty things.

For his eyes only, I’m uninhibited, experienced, a seductress.

Only, our game turns dangerous when a watcher threatens everything, and my hands-on hero vows to save me.

One of them wants me as his wife.
Another one offers freedom… at a price.

HARLOW IS HUNTING HER SISTER’S KILLER.

AND COLE IS HUNTING HER.

COLE SAINT

The woman my family is looking for is the one-night stand I can’t get out of my head, and her life depends on me getting to her first.

Harlow is sunshine and light.

I live in the shadows, among the dark and the damned, but there’s something about Harlow that makes me want to take care of her.

I can protect her from what’s coming, but first I need to find her, and I’m closing in.

I learned my lesson the first time, and I won’t give her the chance to get away from me again.

HARLOW STINTON

What are the chances that the man I shared a toe-curling, name-screaming, raging hot one-night stand with is part of the crime family that’s after me because I saw something I shouldn’t have?

One hundred percent. The chances are one hundred freaking percent.

At least I wasn’t stupid enough to give him my real name.

Now I’m on the run with everything I own stuffed into a tattered backpack.

I never thought I would see Cole again, but I was wrong, and we’re no longer strangers who shared a night.

Now we’re on opposite sides of a war that threatens to tear our worlds apart.

* Brutal Saint is the second book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series.

Blog Tour – The Secrets You Keep by Tracy Lorraine

 Release Date: October 11

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a full length, standalone forbidden romance set in her Maddison Kings University world.

As a teenager, my naïve heart beat for two boys…

Two unattainable, older, forbidden boys. The kind of boys mothers warn their daughters about.

Tristan was the guy everyone wanted… but he was also my older brother’s best friend. Smart, kind, and hot as hell, with a one-way ticket straight to the NFL.

And then there was Knox… my bad-boy stepbrother. Only a year older, he made me feel like I was a silly little girl with a crush… until the first time he kissed me.

The hot, soon-to-be-inked-up gangster from the wrong part of town broke every rule, and shattered hearts… I just never expected one of them to be mine.

All these years later, I can barely remember the shy girl I was back then, back before Knox Bowman burned me.

Now I’m a junior at Maddison Kings University, and they just walked back into my life, throwing my world into a tailspin. Tristan is there for me when things go up in smoke. And Knox is there striking matches, tempting me like a ghost in the night with his darkness.

But I’m all grown up now and I’m ready to go after what I want.

And my damaged heart still wants them both.

Things are different now though.

They’re lying to me… and the secrets about my past have the power to tear my heart in two.

Dear reader,
Do you like your alphas possessive and dirty? Well, you’re in luck because you’ll find two in The Secrets You Keep. Dive back into my Maddison Kings world with this forbidden mfm romance. After all, why should you have to choose between your brother’s best friend and your stepbrother when you could just have both …

HARLOW IS HUNTING HER SISTER’S KILLER.

AND COLE IS HUNTING HER.

COLE SAINT

The woman my family is looking for is the one-night stand I can’t get out of my head, and her life depends on me getting to her first.

Harlow is sunshine and light.

I live in the shadows, among the dark and the damned, but there’s something about Harlow that makes me want to take care of her.

I can protect her from what’s coming, but first I need to find her, and I’m closing in.

I learned my lesson the first time, and I won’t give her the chance to get away from me again.

HARLOW STINTON

What are the chances that the man I shared a toe-curling, name-screaming, raging hot one-night stand with is part of the crime family that’s after me because I saw something I shouldn’t have?

One hundred percent. The chances are one hundred freaking percent.

At least I wasn’t stupid enough to give him my real name.

Now I’m on the run with everything I own stuffed into a tattered backpack.

I never thought I would see Cole again, but I was wrong, and we’re no longer strangers who shared a night.

Now we’re on opposite sides of a war that threatens to tear our worlds apart.

* Brutal Saint is the second book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series.

Review – Gorgeous Monster by Charity Ferrell

Gorgeous Monster; Marchetti Mafia #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: October 11, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Age Gap/Dark/Forbidden/Mafia Romance

Author: Charity Ferrell

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The tension, ALL the steam, the gritty, raw passion, and of course all the dark mafia deals…Gorgeous Monster is a wicked good read.

Whew!! The Marchetti Monster is smoking hot and lives without regret, he is a mafia don afterall, but his daughters’ best friend, who ask him to protect her life, may be the first deal he lives to regret or does he??

Natalia is super feisty with a mouth that tends to get her into trouble, but around Cristian that mouth also keeps her alive. Yes, it’s a very fine line between life and death throughout the entire book, but that line also kept the pages turning with all the hot, steamy chemistry between Natalia and Cristian.

Obviously there is an age gap between Cristian and Natalia, she is his daughter’s best friend after all, but for me, it was truly non-existent while I read the book. Their chemistry is off the charts, which is probably one reason why it wasn’t an issue. The plot also kept rolling and never stopped, which was another huge factor. There was never a lull, allowing my brain to ponder and wander. So I loved how quickly paced, yet well thought out the entire storyline happened.

The mafia world has now been set in Gorgeous Monster and Cristian Marchetti is just the first mobster to be introduced. I’m really excited to return to this world in the next book.

Synopsis:

I should’ve known better than to make a deal with a monster.

When my ex-boyfriend puts a hit out on me, there’s only one man I can run to for protection.
Cristian Marchetti.
The head of the Marchetti Mafia Family.
My best friend’s father.
My last resort.

Cristian’s protection doesn’t come free.
But what he wants might cost me my life.

He’s the mafia king, and I’m his sacrifice.
And now, I must become his wife.

Review – Lessons Learned by Marie James

Lessons Learned; Mission Mercenaries #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: October 13, 2022

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

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Lessons Learned is dark…like extra, cacao dark chocolate dark. Please heed any TW’s, but if dark is where you live and breathe then Angel and Lauren’s story is one passionate and emotional tale to enjoy.

Both Angel and Lauren come from a twisted past. It’s defined their present and haunts their every day decisions. While they’ve taken very different paths because of their trauma, it has also led them to each other, just in very different ways.

Lauren works for the FBI, undercover, and feeds off the underbelly of the criminals she encounters to feed the demons that live in her soul. Loving the duality of taking out the filth while playing in the very playground that feeds the darkness inside her is what keeps her going, most days. This is where she first meets Angel, but it’s years later when their paths cross again.

Angel is a mercenary, working only for himself and his next paycheck. His only goal is his target and any casualty or person left behind is collateral damage. Useless people and anyone standing in front of his payday should learn their lesson and he was pretty sure Lauren would learn hers, but she seems to feed on his darkness. Now that she’s crossed his path once more, he’s set on teaching her one final time.

Lauren and Angel are explosive. Both of their inner demons only get more aggressive as they spend more time together. Remember how I mentioned this book is dark? I was riveted…First question was, would they make it out alive? Secondly, most hate-to-lovers romance…well, when they fall, they fall hard and I was so there for it. Lastly, this is the beginning of a series and I was totally invested in how this series was going to grow.

Lessons Learned is definitely in the deep, deep end of the dark pool, but I was so there for it!!

Synopsis:
They call me a soldier of fortune, a hired gun, a man with no morals only looking to get paid—a mercenary.
That’s true… mostly.
From where I stand, I don’t see it as a bad thing.
Getting paid to do the dirty work, to take the jobs saner people refuse is my bread and butter.
I love the danger, the thrill, the warmth that attempts to spark something in my cold, black heart.
Why shouldn’t I get paid for that?
Does it really matter if I’m indifferent about who I step on to succeed? The job always gets done, and I never look back.
The same went for Lauren Vos, an undercover FBI agent working in some of the most dangerous trafficking circles known to man.
Our paths crossed on a job years ago, and somehow fate has thrown us together once again.
Only this time around she isn’t interested in letting me forget.
The problem for her is that I’m not the same man she thought she left for dead.

Review – Brutal Saint by Luna Kayne

Brutal Saint; Vicious Empire #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: October 11, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Mafia/Instant Attraction/Intrigue Romance

Author: Luna Kayne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Instant spark, chemistry and total fire!! I loved Brutal Saint from beginning to end.

I admit, the title of the book is a bit duplicitous. Cole’s role within the Saint family is an enforcer, so his nature of how to be brutal is known wide and far, but when he’s not working his personality is completely opposite of that man. Cole’s softer side is all about pleasure and taking care of those he cares about and boy did I envy Harlow multiple times throughout this book. The two sides of his personality come together where he’s commanding and dominant, but it all revolves around pleasure and making sure Harlow is well taken care of. Yes, please!!!

Harlow easily slipped into submission, without even knowing she was doing it. Her life has never been easy, so to have someone take over and instantly take care of all of her needs, it was like the best vacation she’d never been able to take before with the hottest man alive. Trying to fight Cole…why bother, am I right? Kidding, Harlow is an amazing character, independent with spirit, but also a huge heart. I loved her!!! These two are my absolute favorite, so the last two Saint boys have a lot of catching up to do to kick them out of the top spot.

From the very beginning of the book these two were fire and also involved in the ever evolving plot without realizing it. I loved how the plot unfolded, not only between these two, but also as a whole. While the Saint family continued to search for information on Grayson’s killer, Harlow was caught in the middle of that investigation. As the twists kept coming and I was gobsmacked over how it all unfolded Harlow fit in perfectly by Cole’s side through the entire story.

This book ends on another great cliffhanger with the continuing mystery moving on and the next brother on deck. It’s getting tense and I can hardly wait to find out more.

Synopsis:
HARLOW IS HUNTING HER SISTER’S KILLER.
AND COLE IS HUNTING HER.

COLE SAINT
The woman my family is looking for is the one-night stand I can’t get out of my head, and her life depends on me getting to her first.
Harlow is sunshine and light.
I live in the shadows, among the dark and the damned, but there’s something about Harlow that makes me want to take care of her.
I can protect her from what’s coming, but first I need to find her, and I’m closing in.
I learned my lesson the first time, and I won’t give her the chance to get away from me again.

HARLOW STINTON
What are the chances that the man I shared a toe-curling, name-screaming, raging hot one-night stand with is part of the crime family that’s after me because I saw something I shouldn’t have?
One hundred percent. The chances are one hundred freaking percent.
At least I wasn’t stupid enough to give him my real name.
Now I’m on the run with everything I own stuffed into a tattered backpack.
I never thought I would see Cole again, but I was wrong, and we’re no longer strangers who shared a night.
Now we’re on opposite sides of a war that threatens to tear our worlds apart.

* Brutal Saint is the second book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series.

**The series must be read in order for the best enjoyment.

Blog Tour – Dirty Crazy Bad by Siobhan Davis

Dirty Crazy Bad Book 1, an all-new sexy and page-turning dark reverse harem romance and first book in the Dirty Crazy Bad Duet from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis is available now!

A new dark college reverse harem romance from the USA Today & WSJ bestselling author of The Sainthood Series.

In the secret society of The Luminaries, no sin will go unpunished…

Sleeping with my boyfriend’s best friend, behind his girlfriend’s back, probably wasn’t my smartest idea.

But Jase is mine, and it’s about time Julia knew it.

Attending Lowell University was supposed to be a fresh start. A chance to end all the sneaking around and make our relationship official.

I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Julia is digging her claws into Jase.

My boyfriend, Chad, is getting in deeper with a local gang.

And my loathsome new stepbrother, Ares, has just moved in.

Ares despises Chad and Jase, and the feeling is mutual. As their rivalry escalates, Ares seems determined to use me as a pawn, and I’m trapped in the middle. It doesn’t help that he’s hot AF, knows exactly how to push my buttons, and my body hasn’t gotten the memo he’s off-limits.

I wish that were the least of my worries.

Pride. Wrath. Lust. Envy. Greed. Gluttony. Sloth.

My life turns upside down the moment the dark secret society of The Luminaries is revealed to me.

Everything I thought I knew was a lie.

Now, I have lost all control over my future, and a heart-breaking new reality emerges.

One where lovers become enemies, enemies become allies, and corrupting sinners to sin is my only way to survive.

Excerpt

Ashley
“Babe.” She snaps her fingers in my face. “Where’d you go?”
“The same place you did.” I lick my lips as I reposition her so she’s plastered to my front with her legs wrapped around my waist.
“I want to christen the hall first,” she says, grinding her pussy against the growing bulge in my jeans.
“I love the way your mind works, Siren.” I crash my lips against hers as I spin us around and walk over to the wall just inside the open doorway. Shoving her spine against the exposed brickwork, I pivot my hips and thrust against her, already leaking precum behind my boxers.
“Chad,” she moans into my mouth. “Take me here, right now, with the door open.”
My brows climb to my hairline as a grin tugs up the corners of my mouth. “Taking a page out of Jase’s book now?”
“He doesn’t own the monopoly on exhibitionism or public fucking,” she says, sucking my lower lip into her mouth. “I need to ride your dick, and I want it now.”

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I love a book that empowers one’s self identity to grow and Gia embodies that journey from beginning to end. Between the gorgeous symbolism with all of the butterflies and Gia’s personal story of spreading her wings, this story is not only steamy hot, but it’s beautiful as well.

I don’t know why it took me several chapters to realize that Trip was a secondary character from the past few books of Tia’s, but probably because this book stands completely his own. While Hana and Blake do pop up as timelines cross, I really enjoyed getting to know Trip as his own man.

Trip is a wealthy man. He owns multiple businesses, one happens to be a gentlemen’s club, but ironically he isn’t all that into strippers. His mind tends to wander as to what hardship might have brought them to the point of stripping, or if they have a hard life, etc…instead of enjoying the entertainment. That is until Glitter Girl takes the stage and suddenly he can’t take his eyes off of her.

Coming to America is nothing like Gia expected. Her dream job went belly up, she’s about to be homeless, and her fiancé is no longer her fiancé, but still her best friend since he is also looking for his own Prince Charming. When she feels like she’s run out of options she’s given a chance to dance, but it requires taking off her clothes, she’s hesitant, but it’s beats living on the street, so Glitter Girl is born.

Could Trip be her new Prince Charming or like all of her other American dreams will it go belly up? Can she trust her instincts and spread her wings or will Trip only be interested in her mystery and allure?

I loved their dynamic between her seductive innocence that was also super sweet – yes it totally makes sense – and his dirty beast side mixed with a big heart.

Synopsis:
Can you love what you can’t touch?

No touching.
It’s the only rule in this business, and trust me, with my money and power, “hands off” is not a problem.
I don’t need the women I employ to satisfy my needs…
Until her.
She’s different than the other girls, innocent, intoxicating, impossibly seductive.
I can’t take my eyes off her, and it’s not long before hot looks turn to hotter touches.
I’m the boss, after all, I call the shots.
And nothing’s more fun than breaking the rules.

I came to this country to pursue my dream… but it was a lie, a scam that quickly fell apart.
Desperate, I took the only job I could with no work visa.
They promised no one would know.
They promised no touching.
Until I saw him.
Dark scruff shading an arrogant grin, lean muscles stretching expensive fabric, eyes like twilight sending electricity from my stomach to my toes.
He’s my boss, but the way he watches makes me do dirty things.
For his eyes only, I’m uninhibited, experienced, a seductress.
Only, our game turns dangerous when a watcher threatens everything, and my hands-on hero vows to save me.

(FOR YOUR EYES ONLY is a stand-alone, extra-spicy romantic suspense with forbidden touches, organized crime, and a virgin heroine. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)
