Blog Tour – Bones by Shantel Tessier

Bones, an all-new addictive dark standalone romance full of heat and suspense from USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!

BONES
I got my name from breaking the bones of a kid who picked on my younger brother, but that’s only where it started.
My black heart craves violence, and being a King gives me plenty of opportunities.
When a friend comes to me for help because someone he loves is in danger, I’m happy to do so. After all, my friends are few, and they are my family.
Once I have her, I do what I have to in order to protect her. She thinks she’s in hell, but this is child’s play compared to what she would have faced.
She’s an innocent through and through and completely off-limits. But that’s not enough to stop me from doing what I do best—taking what’s mine.

MIA
I was born into a deadly Mafia family, yet I’m a nobody. To the world, I don’t exist.
Shuffled from Vegas as a child and sent to Italy for my protection, I became invisible. Until they found a use for me. Now I’m a card my father can play. A chance to cash in on the family name to the highest bidder.
Taken from my home, I’m sold to a King. His hard blue eyes take no prisoners. He’s just another pretty face to hide the evil and in no way my savior.
Now I know what hell looks like because I’m living it. But just when I think I can finally be free, it all comes crashing down, and the King I thought would end me is the only one who can save me.
All I wanted was to be somebody, but now I wish I’d stayed the nobody.

Excerpt

She stares out the window, holding the ice pack to the side of her face. It angers me that the pathetic man hit her. Men like him are weak. He needed his ass beat. I’ll do it. Later. Her evening gown was supposed to make her look like a princess, but it’s ripped up her thigh, and my eyes keep going to the lace material that covers her pussy.
“Where is home?” she asks, not bothering to look at me.
I take a sip of my drink.
Her head slowly turns to finally look me in the eyes. Her porcelain face is tight, nose scrunched, eyes looking smaller by the second as she glares at me. I half expect her to throw the ice pack at my face. And that turns me on.
Fight me, beautiful.
She sighs heavily, making her chest rise and fall with irritation. “Is it in another country?”
“Does it matter?” I finally ask.
“Yes,” she hisses, slamming the ice pack to her lap. “You’re kidnapping me.”
I bite back a smile. “Honey, I paid for you.”
That just seems to enrage her more. She starts speaking a different language. “Excuse me?”
Her words cut off, and she takes in a deep breath, the action making her chest rise again, and this time, I allow myself to watch the way her breasts bounce from the motion, making my cock hard.
“I called you a pompous, self-absorbed son of a bitch,” she clarifies with a bite and adds, “in Italian.”
I take a drink from my glass and smile behind it. She’s exactly what I expected a female Bianchi to be—fucking fire.
My cell rings, and I pull it out of my pocket to see it’s Luca. “Hello?”
“So it went well?” he rushes out. “You’ve got Mia?”
“Yes,” I say, taking another drink.
He lets out a long breath. “Thanks, Bones.” The sound of appreciation in his voice makes my chest tighten. Why has he kept her a secret all these years? Where the hell has she been? If he cared so much, why did he allow this? Between him and the Kings, we could have protected her. He has to know that we would have done whatever he needed for her. All he had to do was ask. We protect our own. I consider Luca a brother.
I look up at her to see her beautiful eyes already on mine. The soft glow of the purple lights makes them look exotic—like a rare diamond. A look of concern covers her pretty, bruised face. The ice pack is now on the floor—long forgotten.
“You saved her,” he whispers, then clears his throat. “But you do whatever you have to do. Do you understand?”
“I understand.”

Review – Defy by Caitlyn Dare

Book cover for Defy: A MFM Romance by Caitlyn Dare

Defy; Red Ridge Sinners MC
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 4, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/MFM/MC Romance

Author: Caitlyn Dare

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Kat is a wild child and I’ve always loved her for her wild spirit. She is the girl you want to be friends with because she always brings the party, but Defy sheds a light into her out of control behavior and it was much more of an emotional ride than I was expecting. Plus, her mysterious lover is revealed and sorry past BBF’s, but Ryder has vaulted over and taken the number one spot.

While Kat always appears to the outside world that she has her life together and is the life of the party, her facade is only because she’s masking the pain and loneliness of her life falling apart day by day. While it appears that everyone is falling in love around her, thus leaving her behind in the dust and her mom is fading away with a debilitating disease right before her eyes, Kat has never felt more alone. (The wild child of the three and by far the glue that holds them all together)

Ryder is one of the few people who notices the mask she wears, as he has a similar situation at home. Offering up his friendship, which soon turns to more, he never meant to fall for her, especially when his best friend has been waiting to make a move for months, but some things just can’t be helped, especially when it comes to his Kitten. (He is fun, a total dirty talker, doesn’t take life too seriously, but also the caretaker, which made him the perfect fit for this triad)

Styx has been patiently waiting for the right time to make Kat his, but nothing ever seems to go his way. However, when he finds out that his best friend, Ryder, has been spending time with his girl it pushes him to go after her, but what she’s wanting, what she suggests, he’s not sure he can give. (He is focused, intense, straightlaced, and a total rule follower…most of the time)

Defy is definitely full of hot men and lots of spicy good times, but unlike some of the other MC books in this series that are packed with suspense and bad guys, this particular book is full of emotional punches and lots of tears. I really enjoyed the different mix with this story, especially knowing Kat from previous books and that she was going to need special guys by her side with her particular journey.

Defy is a standalone in the Red Ridge Sinners series, but enjoyed more when read right along with the other books.

Synopsis:
A new MFM dark romance from the bestselling author of the Savage Falls MC series.

I always knew that once we caved to our desire that it would change everything.

He’s forbidden.

My brother’s ex-best friend.

And his masked accomplice is still a mystery to me.

But while I might try to do the right thing, they seem to have other ideas.

And as has already been proven, my restraint is only so good around them.

Defy is a dark MFM story set within our Red Ridge Sinners MC series.

Review – Bones by Shantel Tessier

44415685. sy475

Bones; Dark Kingdom #5
(#5 within a series)

Publication Date: August 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Mafia/Dark/Suspense Romance

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Dillon Bones Reed is a force to be reckoned with and Mia Bianchi is the one woman who can bring him to his knees.

Bones seems tired, with the Kings empire and all of his side hustles, he really needs a queen by his side. I was ready for his book and the prefect woman who would be strong enough to handle this mysterious King. His kink, his strength, his presence, he needed the perfect woman and Mia did not disappoint.

From an early age, Bones is told – love makes a man weak – while he didn’t necessarily understand what that meant when he’s a young boy, as he gets older the concept solidified as he watches each of his brothers fall for their queen. While he would lay down his life for the men who have stood by his side, he never found a woman that he could say the same, until Mia. She brings out every instinct in him that terrifies him. Things he’s never felt and the worst part of it all is that she’s forbidden, untouchable, and his best friends little sister.

Mia has never felt loved. A prisoner in her own home, she’s only ever wanted a normal life, but taken, sold, and then bought by a lunatic her life seems even more doomed until she slowly begins to fall for her captor and discover that in place of his black heart beats a wild passionate man. Mia discovers a new family in the Kings and their Queens and perhaps a new future with Dillon if he’d only open up and allow himself to love.

There were moments in this book that completely wrecked me, but love proves that it doesn’t make a man weak, it only strengthens the bonds we hold dear.

Synopsis:
BONES
I got my name from breaking the bones of a kid who picked on my younger brother, but that’s only where it started.
My black heart craves violence, and being a King gives me plenty of opportunities.

She’s an innocent through and through and completely off-limits. But that’s not enough to stop me from doing what I do best—taking what’s mine.

MIA
I was born into a deadly Mafia family, yet I’m a nobody. To the world, I don’t exist.

Shuffled from Vegas as a child and sent to Italy for my protection, I became invisible. Until they found a use for me. Now I’m a card my father can play. A chance to cash in on the family name to the highest bidder.

Taken from my home, I’m sold to a King. His hard blue eyes take no prisoners. He’s just another pretty face to hide the evil and in no way my savior.

All I wanted was to be somebody, but now I wish I’d stayed the nobody.

Condemned to Love

Her teen crush is now a ruthless killer and powerful mafia heir. Will one life-altering night unite or destroy them?

Bennett Mazzone grew up ignorant of the truth: he is the illegitimate son of the most powerful mafia boss in New York. Until it suited his father to drag him into a world where power, wealth, violence, and cruelty are the only currency.

Celebrating her twenty-first birthday in Sin City should be fun for Sierra Lawson, but events take a deadly turn when she ends up in a private club, surrounded by dangerous men who always get what they want.

And they want her.

Ben can’t believe his ex’s little sister is all grown up, stunningly beautiful, and close to being devoured by some of the most ruthless men he has ever known. The Vegas trip is about strengthening ties, but he won’t allow his associates to ruin her perfection. Although it comes at a high price, saving Sierra is his only choice.

For readers who enjoy age-gap, sister’s ex, second chance, dark mafia romance.

Forbidden to Love

Natalia Mazzone has grown up knowing she is promised to a made man. As the only daughter of one of New York’s most powerful mafia dons, she knows she can’t refuse. It’s her duty, and she would never dishonor her beloved father.

But the man she’s promised to is a monster. And there is nothing but torture, pain, and heartache lying in wait.

So, she grabs happiness when she finds it—in the somewhat reluctant arms of Leonardo Messina.

Leo is her brother’s best friend. A soldato for the Mazzone famiglia. A man with strong ambition and an even stronger resolve. He won’t allow them to give in to temptation, so Natalia is forced to love him from afar.

Until one forbidden night changes everything, and she readily hands Leo the key to her heart.

For readers who enjoy brother’s best friend, second chance, dark mafia, forbidden romance.

Scared to Love

Serena has felt trapped her entire life, living a lie because it was demanded of her. Years of torture at the hands of her sadistic husband have left her battered and bruised, but not defeated. She needs to stay strong for her children, and she’s determined to reset her future.

The future she has all thanks to Alessandro.

He saved her that fateful night when her husband died, and he continues to save her as she struggles to piece her life back together. Yet the closer they get, the more it terrifies her because no man has ever made her feel like this.

It can’t work.

She’s too broken.

He’s too young.

And she’ll never trust a made man again.

For readers who enjoy friends-to-lovers, second chance, reverse age-gap, forbidden, dark mafia romance.

I shouldn’t be here.

Let me rephrase that…
I never wanted to be here.

I didn’t ask for any of this.

Not the society I was born into.
Definitely not the academy I’m supposed to attend.
And sure as hell not the group I’m forced to play nice with.

Unfortunately, one too many school suspensions has catapulted me into the world I swore I’d never live in.

Boulder Cove Academy: Where The Lawless reign and those beneath them are nothing but ash between their fingertips.

The three leaders of this place—Crew, Jagger, and Neo—have always been an aching thorn in my side.

When things get ugly, I have no choice but to turn to the boys I loathe.

Acceptance means I become a slave to their darkest desires.
Bones to rattle.
A mind to shake.

In the thick of it all, I begin to see the truth. They never intended to help me.
They only want to destroy me.

One game at a time.

Blog Tour – Forbidden Mafia Prince by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

Forbidden Mafia Prince by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank is now live!

 

Forbidden Mafia Prince is the first book in USA Today Bestselling Authors Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank’s M/M mafia romance duet.

“What are you going to do with me?”
“Whatever the hell I want.”

In Manhattan, tensions are rising.
In a play for power, the Rossetti family has made a decisive blow, crippling their rivals—an act that has forced the Fiores to make a desperate move to maintain their supremacy.

Many miles away, Luca Davis, a young medical student, has no idea his life is about to change.
No idea that everything he’s been told about his life has been a lie.
Enter Domenico Rossetti, the ruthless Mafia prince. Powerful and unforgiving, he’s a savage in a suit—and the one who holds the cards when it comes to his new captive.

But when the war escalates and both are forced into seclusion, the two men are faced with a new threat: the rising sexual tension between them.
You don’t fall for the one person you’re supposed to hate, but it’s a temptation neither can resist.
Because falling in love with the enemy isn’t only wrong—it’s forbidden.
And the cost for defying everyone will be their lives.

Review – A Fractured Reign by Veronica Eden

59747962. sy475

A Fractured Reign; Crowned Crows #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: July 29, 2022

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

Author: Veronica Eden

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Non-stop action and the boiling chemistry between two brilliant, tech savvy characters. The page-turning reading was explosive!!

What would you do to save a loved one? What lengths would you reach? What desperate measures would you take? Quinn and Colton are cut from the same cloth. Not only are they both technical geniuses, but they are also both motivated to protect their families at all costs.

Quinn will do everything to help and protect her brother, Sammy, to the detriment of her own personal being and Colton has that same burning drive inside. He will do anything to keep his brothers, the Crowned Crows; Wren, Jude, Levi and by extension their girlfriends, Isla and Rowan, safe and protected.

It was truly exciting to read Quinn and Colton, not only come to terms over their raging inferno feelings for one another, but bicker with like an old married couple with fantastic wit because their chemistry was through the roof. They shared a comradery with their tech skills, which added a hotness factor you wouldn’t expect, but their chemistry was nuclear.

Colton is like the energizer bunny and just never quits. His humor, his brain, his quick wit, basically everything about him is infectious. How Quinn ever kept her wits about to even begin to code was a mystery. Although to be fair taking down a huge kingdom like the Crows is no easy task, but now with two hackers in the nest, it almost seems possible, that is as long as Quinn doesn’t stab everyone in the back.

A Fractured Reign is suspenseful, mega hot, and full of playful wit in the face of constant adversity. Keep in mind the Crows always walk in shades of gray. They aren’t necessarily bad guys, but they aren’t the good ones either. I love this group and adore how it’s grown with the perfect women by their sides.

While this is a new couple with a super hot romance and is a standalone in that respect, the underlying plot of what the couple and what the Crows are facing is an ongoing, suspenseful situation.

Synopsis:
The Crows are more than nightmares lurking in every shadow.
They’re a brotherhood. Family. When threats creep in, they’ll protect what belongs to them.

Quinn
Does a wrong make a right?
In my case, it has to.
The Kings gave me no choice, no chance to fold.
I betrayed the guy who believed he was protecting me while I gave his secrets away.
Now we’re enemies once more.
My brother and I burned all our bridges. Begging Colton DuPont for his help again is my only option.
The Crows demand a steep price, but to buy our safety I’ll do anything.
Even sell my soul to the man who wants me dead.

Colton
Our unmatched reign is going up in flames.
And I know exactly who our enemy is. Quinn Walker.
My queen turned out to be my downfall.
Any danger to my brothers is a threat I won’t allow.
Once these flames sputter to ashes and the dust settles, our next hunt begins.
My monster has come out to play, and I won’t rest until I get revenge.
Burn me once, shame on you. Burn me twice?
Baby, you better run, because I’m coming for you.

Warning: This is part of a continuing series and each book ends on a cliffhanger!

A Fractured Reign is a dark new adult enemies to lovers college romantic suspense intended for mature readers. This book is the third in the Crowned Crows series following a gritty brotherhood of antihero bad boys and the feisty heroines that capture their hearts. The plot continues across the next novels and each book in the series should be read in order. If you’re not a fan of morally bankrupt book boyfriends, steer clear. This mature new adult romance contains dubious situations, crude language, and intense sexual/violent content that some readers might find triggering or offensive. Please proceed with caution.

I shouldn’t be here.

Let me rephrase that…
I never wanted to be here.

I didn’t ask for any of this.

Not the society I was born into.
Definitely not the academy I’m supposed to attend.
And sure as hell not the group I’m forced to play nice with.

Unfortunately, one too many school suspensions has catapulted me into the world I swore I’d never live in.

Boulder Cove Academy: Where The Lawless reign and those beneath them are nothing but ash between their fingertips.

The three leaders of this place—Crew, Jagger, and Neo—have always been an aching thorn in my side.

When things get ugly, I have no choice but to turn to the boys I loathe.

Acceptance means I become a slave to their darkest desires.
Bones to rattle.
A mind to shake.

In the thick of it all, I begin to see the truth. They never intended to help me.
They only want to destroy me.

One game at a time.

Review – Dark Princess by Tracy Lorraine

61363570. sy475

Dark Princess; Knights Ridge Empire #11
(#2 within a trilogy, #11 within the series)

Publication Date: July 28, 2022

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
What a roller coaster ride of emotions! Dark Princess is the full gamete of feels, ups, downs, and complete emotional wreckage that I love from Lorraine’s books.

Dark Princess opened Batman, WIDE open. His tortuous past, his emotional spirit was flayed wide open for Calli. I wanted to give him a huge hug, especially for the little boy he was when he sustained all of his trauma. I was all up in my feels with his backstory. Calli couldn’t be more perfect for him as the balm to his soul, but unfortunately it will still be one more book until that happens. I’m sending my virtual hug to him now, even though he isn’t much of a hugger, except for his Angel.

Calli really takes off as not only a mafia princess, but a dark one at that. She is truly stepping into the world she was born into and I’m loving her character the more I read her. She is becoming her own person, different than Stella and Emmie, and I love that about her.

Like every second book in a trilogy, I both love and loathe them. It’s that happy medium point where everything is perfect until everything speeds up to another cliffhanger – and whoa, what a whooper- before the ending of the book, which is also torturous because it’s at that point I realize I never want the trilogy to end. Do you see my struggle, it’s real.

This couple, how Tracy makes me love each one more and more, but seriously, they are my new favorite. The dark vs. light or just the overall vibe of the story, whatever the combination is, I adore them together and can’t get enough!

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is a dark, stalker type intense story, with a hint of mystery, that showcases a smart-mouthed heroine against three angry-rule-the-school boys…ALL THE YESSESSSSS!!!!

I stayed up soooooo late that I seriously thought of calling in with the – I’m sorry I have a book hangover – excuse the next day.

Scarlett is a total bada$$. She never backs down, never once gets distracted by their gorgeous faces, their wicked games, manipulative play or emotional warfare. (I have a serious girl crush on her.) Scarlett used to be friends with Neo, Crew, and Jagger, but then tragedy struck and now they are enemies. They don’t hold back and neither does she. This book is a total wild ride and I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough to see what would happen next.

All four of the main characters have grown up together so it would have been so easy to fall back into a relationship of comfort, especially one between Crew and Scarlett. Those two are the closest, of had the closest relationship in the past, but they also suffered the most damage in their friendship. While this book only has a POV that switches back and forth between the two of them, there is definitely something brewing between all four. It was kind of neat to only get the perspective of only two of the characters when this story actually involves more, so I’m really curious how everything will play out going forward and what insight we will be privy to.

As for the other guys; Neo is the leader of the three guys and by far the meanest, but in small and I mean extremely small doses you see him play nice and in those moments he could have easily broken down walls with Scar, but there is more to his tough shell, we just don’t get enough of him…yet.

Jagger is an entirely different story. He’s always played in the gray when it comes to Scarlett’s emotions. Never being too nice, but never being ulta mean either. He finally unveils a bit more of himself, which should lead to some interesting times ahead.

I’m really excited to jump into more of this story. This first book left on a mysterious cliffhanger and I”m totally salivating for more, more, more!!

Forbidden Mafia Prince; The Malvagio Duet #1
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: July 25, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/New Adult/Dark/Mafia/Forbidden/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Fantastic suspense from the very beginning that never once let up with a forbidden chemistry that built between the main characters that was explosive and wicked hot! It’s also full of adrenaline pumping, knuckle biting, page turning action!!

Kidnapped right off the street, Luca is held captive with no idea as to why he is taken hostage or what his dark captor wants with him.

A war has begun and as the heir to the Rossetti kingdom, Dom has been told he will sit this one out, locked away with the very prisoner who is at the center of it all.

Frustrated with only himself to rely on, Luca has more questions mounting by the day and no one will answer them. Trapped with his captor only seems to mount confusion on his swirling emotions, and Dom’s dark attitude only seems more enticing as the time ticks by.

Forbidden Prince is fast paced and just so, so good! The tension, the action, and all the mystery…I can hardly stand to wait for the next book because I need to know how everything is going to end for these two. I’m on pins and needles here!!!

About Rogue

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. Prepare for a cliffhanger ending with no HEA until the final book.

Review – Princess Claimed by Alison Aimes

May be an image of 2 people, book and text

Princess Claimed; Ruthless Warlords #3.5
(Novella within a series)

Publication Date: October 28, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Novella/Sci-Fi/Instant Attraction/Omegaverse/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Alison Aimes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Looking for action, adventure, romance, fated mates and instant attraction that will melt your panties right off? Princess Claimed is all that and more.

I love coming back to Aimes’ Omegaverse time and time again and this time was no exception. Princess Claimed is fun and steamy and full of great twists. Ari literally falls from the sky right into Pavel’s arms and while these two have an instant connection, Ari has no idea who she is when she lands in Paver’s arms. As much as they want to get down and dirty, her loss of memory does present a bit of a problem, especially with the clues hidden amongst her clothes.

Ari is a princess and Pavel is…not good enough for her. (sad day for fated mates)

Pavel and Ari might seem like opposites, but their chemistry is boiling hot right from the get go and I instantly fell in love with them together. This novella never stops whether it’s passionate, or filled with action in this opposites attract, instant chemistry novella. I loved it!!!

Synopsis:
What happens when a bad boy alien trying to go good meets a good girl omega looking to be bad?
He’s shuttle grease and heavy lifting. She’s lace, luxury, and glittering jewels.
He’s grumpy and closed off. She’s got a smile that could unite kingdoms.
He’s a scarred, exiled convict. She’s a dainty angel with the air of a princess.
They’re not just worlds apart. They’re separated by galaxies, circumstances, and expectations.
But when she literally falls from the sky into his arms and their explosive chemistry erupts, he’s only got one objective…convincing her they’re perfect for each other.
But first, he’ll have to get her to remember who she is and why there are men trying to kill her.

Princess Claimed is a scorching novella in the Ruthless Warlords series. It takes places in the same universe as the rest of the series and features characters from the Forbidden zone, but can be read as a stand-alone. It’s a hot sweet Omegaverse with fated mates, Alpha steaminess, and opposites-attract fun. It will initially be published in the Claimed Among the Stars Anthology.

Blog Tour – Beyond My Darkness by RC Boldt

Beyond My Darkness by RC Boldt is now live!

 If you listen, the dead will talk.

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 a 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.

About Rogue

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. Prepare for a cliffhanger ending with no HEA until the final book.

Review – God of Malice by Rina Kent

60913024. sy475

God of Malice; Legacy of Gods #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: July 14, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Secret Society/Dark Romance/New Adult

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Have you ever wondered what happens when the villain and their queen have children? Wonder no more. Step into a brand new world that is dark and full of monsters and the princesses caught in their sights.

The Legacy of Gods series is a new world that brings us the children from the Royal Elite and Mafia World villain’s and their queens. Characters we’ve already fallen in love with, or for some readers they may never have met, either way, this world is brand new and the perfect place to meet brand new characters who are unapologetic for who they are and a place for us to fall in love with all the dark romance that their actions take us on. It’s a wild ride and one I’m still in complete awe over even hours after finishing the book. I have a feeling this entire series is going to involve lots of book hangovers.

Killian Carson doesn’t process emotions like the rest of the world. He has no empathy for others or remorse for his actions. He also becomes fixated on certain things, becoming obsessive about them to the point of destruction and right now his current fixation has become Glyndon King. Like the prey trying to escape the hunter he loves the chase, the struggle and especially the color red or should I say blood.

Glyndon King is familiar with someone like Killian. Her brother, Landon, is very similar in their personalities. While she recognizes the traits within Killian, she certainly doesn’t like being the center of his obsessive world. She does everything to escape him, fearing he’ll see deeper into her own secrets and darkness and Killian for all of his lack of emotions seems to see all of hers and knows her better than even she does.

These two are one of Rina’s most explosive couples’ yet. I feel like all I can say is Wow, Wow, Wow! Killian was like opening a box inside another box inside another box, etc….His character was fascinating and yet, also kept me on the edge of my seat never knowing exactly what he was going to do. I loved him for what would seem like a hollow shell on the outside, but he was truly a kaleidoscope of color on the inside. Glyndon grew in her strength, but it was more of an uncovering, something she always had inside of her, but Killian helped to bring it out. Their story was turbulent and dark with a splash of mystery that I’ve come to love with Kent’s books, but I was also transfixed and loved every moment of it.

The secondary characters, I almost hate to call them that only because I know many of them will be getting their own books, but for now that’s where they were cast. Each and everyone was fascinating in their own rights. I truly couldn’t decide who I would want to read next because they all have their strengths and deserve a chance in the spotlight. There were also great moments with family and of course when they are gathered together with their friends it checked off everyone of my boxes for a truly great beginning to this new series!

Character Tree Ages.jpg

Synopsis:
Royal Elite & Mafia World Spinoff Dark New Adult Series. This is a standalone.
I caught the attention of a monster.
I didn’t ask for it.
Didn’t even see it coming.
But the moment I do, it’s too late.
Killian Carson is a predator wrapped in sophisticated charm.
He’s cold-blooded, manipulative, and savage.
The worst part is that no one sees his devil side.
I do.
And that will cost me everything.
I run, but the thing about monsters?
They always chase.

This book is not a conventional romance and contains themes that aren’t to everyone’s liking. Please check the author’s note before reading.

Blurb:
I shouldn’t be here.

Let me rephrase that…
I never wanted to be here.
I didn’t ask for any of this.

Not the society I was born into.
Definitely not the academy I’m supposed to attend.
And sure as hell not the group I’m forced to play nice with.

Unfortunately, one too many school suspensions has catapulted me into the world I swore I’d never live in.

Boulder Cove Academy: Where The Lawless reign and those beneath them are nothing but ash between their fingertips.

The three leaders of this place—Crew, Jagger, and Neo—have always been an aching thorn in my side.

When things get ugly, I have no choice but to turn to the boys I loathe.

Acceptance means I become a slave to their darkest desires.
Bones to rattle.
A mind to shake.

In the thick of it all, I begin to see the truth. They never intended to help me.
They only want to destroy me.
One game at a time.

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.

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.

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.
