Review – Washed Away by R.C. Boldt

Washed Away 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: December 7, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense Romance

Author: R.C. Boldt

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Washed Away begins right away with mystery and intrigue and slowly builds into the suspense and passion.

A woman washes up on a beach in Panama covered in bullet holes and knife wounds and Dr. Liam King nurses her back to health, but this mysterious woman, upon waking, has no memory of how she arrived upon the shore nor her past or even her name.

Weeks go by until she finally has a recollection of her name or at least one that feels right, but her memory still reveals nothing about her past. Dr. King and Alexandra’s relationship is slow going at first until it finally erupts in a volcanic flame some in part to her healing and some in part to the underlying mystery of the story. However,  once these two give into the passion that’s been building between them it doesn’t stop and it’s hot, but their story is also more convoluted than just a lost memory.

Washed Away is a slower brewing story than Boldt’s last romantic thrillers, but I’d also say it’s filled with more passion and contains more intrigue and emotions as well. A 4.5 star read overall.

Synopsis:

USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt brings us a sizzling romance chock-full of intrigue and deceit in this brand new romantic suspense…

All that’s forgotten isn’t always gone…

I’m at death’s doorstep when my body washes up on shore in Panama.

My memory is a blank slate. I can’t even remember my name. I don’t know who shot me and left me for dead—or why.

Patient and kind, the lone doctor there mends my body while offering me refuge.

As tiny flashbacks of my past occur, I wonder if there’s anyone I can trust.

It’s up to me to discover whether I’m in danger or a danger to others. Whether I’ve actually found love or if it’s all been a lie.

I need answers to find out who I really am.

If only I could remember.

Review – Beautiful Submission by Ivy Wild

59595098. sy475

Beautiful Submission 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: December 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Captive/Submission/Enemies-to-Lovers/Age Gap Romance

Author: Ivy Wild

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars4.5 stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This is not a typical BDSM romance. This is a slow burn romance with a lot of psychological elements where love isn’t earned through paddles, but control.

Aubrey Knight is the daughter of a senator. She has grown up in a fake world and has never really known what it’s like to be herself. Is she a brat? Yes, she is pretty good at acting out, but when it’s the only way to gain attention in a world where she’s never known love, and it’s the only thing she knows.

Xavier Payne is a man all about control and order. When he barters a deal with the senator and Aubrey is the collateral. Xavier uses the time Aubrey is isolated in his home to fix the broken girl, but he never thought she’d turn the tables on him and crack his ice filled chest open with all of her fire.

While these two would seem like complete opposites; a bratty, spoiled girl vs. a polished, controlled man. The more time they spend together and melt each other walls, they find out they may be more alike than they ever would have guessed.

Fire vs. ice is the underlying theme throughout the entire story, but will fire melt the ice or will the ice put out the fire? These two are opposite and don’t give in easy, it’s a true battle to find any happiness, but neither have really experienced happiness in their lives to know it is possible and should be important.

This is a slow burn, so don’t get frustrated by the back and forth. In a true enemies to lovers that push and pull makes that slow burn bubble and boil until it steams up to the perfect temperature.

Synopsis:

Xavier:
My truth is control.
My truth is that good is rewarded
and that bad is punished.
Aubrey Knight thought she could disrupt my business
and get away with it.
But, she was sorely mistaken.
So, when her father lost the election
and came to me begging for money I struck a deal.
The little brat would serve as collateral until the loan was repaid.
She thinks she can test me.
How laughable.
She will submit to me,
and it will be a beautiful submission.

Aubrey:
I will never submit to him.

Beautiful Submission is a complete standalone romance with age-gap, enemies to lovers, captive and BDSM themes

Review – Secrets and Lies by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

Secrets and Lies 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: November 29, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Age-Gap/Forbidden/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Ryder and Ash are hot, forbidden and their chemistry is off the charts!!!

From the very beginning the story is fantastic. Secrets and Lies is page turning, electric chemistry with taboo themes, but every page radiates a red hot  energy that burns right off the page!

Ryder and Ash meet at an art workshop and instantly hit it off. There is that instant spark, but also an insight into the personalities of these two men. Ryder at his core is tenacious, tenacious, tenacious. I have a daughter who is just like him, no filter and knows exactly what he wants, of course I loved that he knew there was nothing that was going to stop him from getting what he wanted and that was Ash.

Ash was drawn to Ryder from the moment he stepped into the workshop. Ash hasn’t felt that kind of spark, probably ever in his life. As much as he tries to deny it, he just can’t help the pull to the charismatic Ryder.

Neither could have guessed what would have happened the next day when Ryder started at a new school and Ash was standing at the head of the classroom.

Yes, the story is forbidden and should contain a ton of angst and it does, but Ryder’s lack of filter adds levity to most of the situations. Underlying every moment is the delicious sort of angst between them more than anything. It’s the…will they or won’t they…perfect forbidden kind of reading. Secrets and Lies is a one sit read, I know, I couldn’t put it down once I started.

Synopsis:

I wasn’t supposed to want him. The bronzed god lying by my pool in tight shorts that left little to the imagination. But I was only human, and with the temptation constantly within reach, it was only a matter of time before I could no longer resist.

It was wrong. I knew that.

He was my son’s best friend.

But even worse…I was his teacher.

Blog Tour – The Ritual by Shantel Tessier

I will protect and own her.

The Ritual, an all-new dark college romance by USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Shantel Tessier is available now!

The Chosen One
I vow. You vow. We vow.
Barrington University is home of the Lords, a secret society that requires their blood in payment. They are above all—the most powerful men in the world. They devote their lives to violence in exchange for power. And during their senior year, they are offered a chosen one.
People think growing up with money is freeing, but I promise you, it’s not. My entire life has been planned out for me. I never got the chance to do what I wanted until Ryat Alexander Archer came along and gave me an option for a better life. He offered me what no one else ever had—freedom.
I chose to be his. He made me believe that anyway, but it was just another lie. A way that the Lords manipulate you into doing what they want.
After being sucked into the dark, twisted world of the Lords, I embraced my new role and allowed Ryat to parade me around like the trophy I was to him. But like all things, what started out as a game soon became a fight for survival. And the only way out was death.

Excerpt

INITIATION
RYAT

Loyalty Freshman year at Barrington University I KNEEL IN the middle of the darkly lit room along with twenty other men. My hands are secured tightly behind my back with a pair of handcuffs. My shirt is torn, and blood drips from my busted lips. I’m panting, still trying to catch my breath while my heart beats like a drum in my chest. It’s hard to hear over the blood rushing in my ears, and I’m sweating profusely. 

We were dragged out of our beds in the middle of the night to serve. Our freshman classes at Barrington University start in two weeks, but we already have to show our loyalty to the Lords. 

“You will always have to prove yourself,”my father once told me. “You were each given a task,”the man calls out as he paces in front of us. His black combat boots slap against the concrete floor with each step, the sound echoing off the walls. “Kill or be killed. Now how many of you can fulfill it?” 

“I can,” I state, lifting my head to stick my chin out in the warm and sticky air. Sweat covers my brow after the fight. It’s rigged. You are supposed to lose. The point is to wear you down. See just how much you have to give. How far you can go. I made sure to win mine. No matter what it took.

 He smirks down at me like I’m fucking joking. “Ryat. You seem so confident in yourself.” 

“I know what I’m capable of handling,”I say through gritted teeth. I don’t like being second-guessed. We were each raised for this—to be a Lord. 

Wealth got us here.

 Yet our determination will separate us by the time it’s over. 

The man looks at the guy on my left and nods. The guy walks behind me and yanks me to stand by the back of my shirt. He undoes the cuffs, and I rip the shredded material up and over my head before dropping my hands to my sides when what I really want to do is rub my sore wrists. 

Never show weakness. A Lord does not feel. He’s a machine. 

The man steps up to me with a knife in hand. He holds it out handle first to me, his black eyes almost glowing with excitement. “Show us what you can do.”

Taking it from him, I walk over to the chair bolted to the floor. I yank the bloody sheet off the chair to reveal a man tied to it. His hands are cuffed behind his back, and his feet are spread wide and secured to the chair legs. 

I’m not surprised I know him—he’s a Lord. Or was. The fact that he’s restrained tells me he’s not anymore. But that doesn’t change my orders. 

Kill without questions.

 You want to be powerful? Then you realize you are a threat to those who want your position. In order to succeed, you don’t have to be stronger, just deadlier. 

The man shakes his head, his brown eyes pleading with me to spare his life. Multiple layers of duct tape are placed over his mouth—those who spill secrets will be silenced. He thrashes in his chair. 

Walking behind him, I look down at his cuffed wrists. He wears a ring on his right hand; it’s a circle with three horizontal lines across the middle. It stands for power.

 Not just anyone would know what it means, but I do. Because I wear the same one. Everyone in this room does. But just because you get one doesn’t mean you’ll keep it. 

I reach down and grab his hand. He begins to shout behind the tape as he tries to fight me, but I remove the ring easily and walk back around to stand in front of him. “You don’t deserve this,”I say to him, placing it in my pocket. “You betrayed us, your brothers, yourself. The payment for that is death.”

When he throws his head back and screams into the tape, I press the knife to his neck, right below his jawline. His breathing fills the room, and his body strains, waiting for the first cut. 

A Lord does not show mercy. Blood and tears are what we demand from those who betray us.

Blog Tour – Savage Hearts by J.T. Geissinger

Savage Hearts, the highly-anticipated third standalone in the Queens & Monsters mafia romance series by JT Geissinger is available now!

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce she’s getting married, it’s a shock. She’s
not the settling-down kind, and we haven’t spoken in almost three years.
Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancé. Curious, I decide
to take her up on the offer.
I should’ve known something was wrong when she wouldn’t tell me where I’d be going. I
should’ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But there’s no way
in hell I could’ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancé.
Declan O’Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.
Now, I’m thousands of miles from home, I’m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and I’ve got a
Russian assassin who’s decided he likes the looks of me.
They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.

Excerpt

“Yeah. Oh—can I ask you a favor? Will you please not hurt him? Kieran, either. He’s the other bodyguard. The bigger one. They’re both really nice.”
Malek stares at me in disbelief.
“Sorry. Is that asking too much? It’s just that I’d never get over it if they got hurt because of me. They’re only trying to do their jobs.”
After a moment, he says angrily, “You know who I am. You know what I do. Correct?”
“Yes. I’ve been filled in on the particulars.”
“And you’re lying there with my hand around your neck asking me not to hurt your bodyguards.”
He says it like my sanity is in question.
“I know it’s maybe a little unorthodox.”
“No,” he says flatly.
“Please?”
He growls, “What the fuck is wrong with you?”
“There’s no need to get testy.”
“Testy?”
“I’m just saying. You don’t have to get all mad about it.”
Furious again, he glares at me, grinding his jaw and probably calculating how much pressure it will take to snap the brittle bird bones in my neck.
Before he does, I say, “I also want to thank you for the rose you left me. That was really nice. I’ve never had a man bring me flowers before. I know it was only the one, and also you thought I was a captive prostitute at the time, but still. It was thoughtful. So thank you.”
He stares at me with an expression somewhere between confusion and amazement, with a healthy dose of disgust on the side.
“Now is probably a good time to remind you that I’m still the same person you left the rose for. So if you did kill me, you’d be killing her, too. Just a thought.”
“Are you on drugs?”
“Not at the moment, no. Why, do you have any?”
“There’s something wrong with you. Mentally. Right?”
That makes me laugh. “Oh, totally. I’ve got more than a few screws loose. At least that’s what my dad tells me. But he’s super uptight, zero imagination, so his opinion doesn’t really count. Not that he’s wrong, because he isn’t, but normies shouldn’t judge creatives. They just have no idea how we’re wired. Why are you looking at me like that?”
“I’ve never had a conversation with an insane person before.”
“Very funny.”
“It wasn’t a joke.”
“Ouch.”
We stare at each other in silence. His hostile, mine hopeful. He still hasn’t murdered me, so things are looking up.
“Malek?”
“What.” He says it flatly. With dread.
“Thank you for not killing me.”
He says emphatically, “Don’t thank me yet.”
“You’re still deciding?”
“If only to get you to shut up, yes.”
“In that case…” I make a zipper motion across my lips.
He watches with outrage, astonishment, and absolute disbelief.
“Actually, before I shut up, I also want to say that it was really sweet that you tried to save me from being a sex worker. I mean, what a gentleman! A gentleman killer who gives strangers big wads of cash in restrooms. You’re quite the puzzle, Mr. Ghost. Or is it just Ghost? I’m never sure how the nickname thing works, except between me and my sister, but that doesn’t count because my whole family is a little weird. I’ll just call you Malek, if that’s all right. Or Mal for short, since we’re such buds now, what with you breaking into my various bedrooms for midnight visits and all. Okay, I’m shutting up now. Here I go.”
I press my lips together and gaze up at him, watching him struggle with dueling urges to cut off my air supply or break something over my head.
Maybe he’s right about me being insane, because rather than terrifying, I find his indecision understandable.
He’s not the first man I’ve driven to the brink of murder. He’s just the most capable of actually going through with it.
“Oh, one more thing—”
“I know a way to keep that mouth quiet,” he snaps.
Then he kisses me.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A Very Naughty MC Christmas brings brotherhood and the spirit of the holiday season all together in one spot.

Each unique story brings an established MC world to life for the holiday season. Each story is steamy hot and perfect just in time for the holidays.

Each author was new to me and these are the stories I’m reviewing:

Bear – by Teagan Brooks
I had a big, soft spot for the biker named Bear in this story. A man willing to help and look after someone purely because it’s the right thing to do melted my heart. Yes, the little three year old is hard to say no to and completely adorable to boot, but this story has it all, warmth, heart, smexy times and intrigue.

Elle’s Mischief – by K.L.Savage
This story is an entire family affair, but at the heart of the story is a young girl trying to grow faster than her parents would like. Elle finds out that actions have consequences, but being part of a MC also means you don’t let down one of your own, especially at Christmas. It’s a spicy and sweet story.

A Family Christmas – by Cassandra Robbins
Santa better check the fireplace before sliding down the chimney at this clubhouse because the families riding out of here are hot, hot, hot!!

This entire anthology is perfect for the MC lover.

Synopsis:

Tis the season for an MC Christmas.

10 steamy stories sure to make the naughty list this year.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

12 brand new stories by 14 authors, all forbidden or taboo in nature, but seriously delicious and just in time for the holidays.

Whether you like age gap, guardian, step-siblings, or even a naughty priest there is a forbidden holiday story contained within this anthology.

These were just a few of the ones I delved into:

Unwrap Him – by Nyla K.
A MM/Guardian Age-Gap story. James has been the guardian of Jesse, the son of his best friends who died years ago, and he’s only ever wanted to protect and raise him right, but when Jesse makes a pass at James can he really cross that line?

Dirty Secrets – by Ivy Fox and Thandie
An ex-boyfriend’s dad/Age-Gap story. Nicole is headed to spend Christmas with her sister who recently married her ex…yikes. The night before Nicole decides to have one night of passion with a delicious dreamboat, the next morning she discovers that dreamboat is actually her ex’s father. What a tangled web to unwind this holiday season.

Through the River, Into the Woods – by Leigh Lennon
A MMF/Guardian/Age-Gap/Step-siblings story. This story has just about every taboo you could want, plus all the angst and emotion too. River and Kenzie are step-siblings and when they lose their parents they go to live with Isaiah and things really heat up after that.

If forbidden and taboo is your jam, this holiday collection is perfect!

Synopsis:

What better time of year to unwrap forbidden love than Christmas?

Step-brothers, teachers, priests, and guardians…the heart wants what it wants.

These 12 love stories aren’t just taboo, they’re deliciously twisted.

Your wildest fantasies delivered in this LIMITED EDITION collection.

Grab yours before it’s gone FOREVER!

Blog Tour – Wicked Trials by Elena Lawson

New Release 

Release Date: November 19

This wasn’t supposed to happen. I was supposed to glide through senior year unnoticed and ride into the sunset on the back of my aunt’s inflated bank account. I was supposed to be in control.

Now they are.

The trials will last 60 days. They can happen anytime, anyplace, and anyone or anything is fair game. I won’t see them coming. I’ll need to be ready at all times. Prepared to fight, to steal, to save, and to kill at Diesel St. Crow’s command.

While I sit on standby, he’s ordered his sons to keep an eye on me, and they’ve become my own personal wardens.

Corvus, Rook, and Grey. Their watchful stares will make destroying them from the inside harder than I planned for.

But as truths are dragged out of the shadows and new dangers emerge, I may be forced to accept that they are more than armed roadblocks in my path. They might also be my only hope of survival.

Wicked Trials is a full-length dark enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance, meaning the main character will have more than one love interest. It is book two in the Boys of Briar Hall series and should be read after Crooked Crows.

Warning: This is a dark gang romance. It contains foul language, explicit sexual content, graphic depictions of gang violence, dubcon, and jealous/possessive themes. Recommended for readers aged eighteen and up. Please read responsibly.

Review – First Kiss Before Frost by Jennifer Bernard

59522927. sy475

First Kiss Before Frost; Lost Harbor, Alaska #11 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Contemporary Romance

Author: Jennifer Bernard

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Super cute, funny, and full of small town charm with a touch of mystery.

Lulu Spencer-Bennington is super quirky and totally owns her personality and oddities. It’s her adorable personality that Tristan Del Ray finds so charming when he finds Lulu stowed away on his ship. This couple had me laughing from the very beginning and the story was delightful from beginning to end.

Lulu escaped from an anchored cruise ship birthed in Lost Harbor and hid on Tristan’s ship for protection. Lulu’s quirky personality made Tristan laugh, something he hadn’t done in quite some time, which is one reason he felt protective of her, but that was just one reason in a very long list regarding Lulu.

Tristan was barely back to fishing after having brain surgery and he still was trying to get his footing on his life. Tristan is well liked and has always been personable, but after his surgery he feels…sometimes not like himself. Lulu makes him laugh and she actually needs his help and even though she may be a stranger he feels compelled to help her and purposeful for the first time since his injury.

First Kiss Before Frost is so much more than just two people falling in love, it’s a story about trusting yourself and finding your place even if you think you may be a little lost. Lulu and Tristan share laughter and trust in this adventure through Lust…I mean Lost Harbor and I was laughing through a lot of tears right along with them. It’s the perfect addition to one of my favorite small town series.

Synopsis:

A sexy standalone in the fan-favorite Lost Harbor, Alaska series

After a heartbreaking loss, Lulu Spencer-Bennington is on a mission to live her life to the fullest. Dancing her way around the world on a cruise ship is a great start. Hiding in a small Alaska town, staying off a criminal’s radar, probably wasn’t what her beloved mum had in mind. Fortunately, she’s stumbled across a sexy fisherman willing to help. So maybe he doesn’t quite know what he’s in for…but Lulu’s hoping to be out of town before he finds out.

Tristan Del Rey has always been a natural leader—but a recent fishing accident has sent his confidence reeling. He’s no hero, no matter what his fellow Lost Harbor fishermen think. Even so, he can’t turn away the funny, feisty dancer he finds on his boat. He’s determined to protect her no matter what it costs him. As for anything more personal, the best he can offer is some temporary fun. That doesn’t stop the luscious, long-legged Lulu from high-kicking him right in the heart.

Between a dangerous enemy, family drama and the fast-approaching winter, Tristan and Lulu may find their hearts’ desires where they least expect it…starting with a first kiss before frost.

Blurb:
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.
My entire life has been a lie…
And the one person I allowed myself to trust has shattered any illusion I had left about who I was and where I came from.
The men around me have proved just how unworthy they really are, and now I’m caught in the middle of something far more dangerous than I ever could have imagined.
The secrets.
The lies.
They all tangle together.
My father had to know this day would come. That his past would catch up with both of us.
Sebastian wanted me as pawn, and then for himself, but he seems to have forgotten who he’s dealing with.

Not even the one who’s stolen my heart.

Dear Readers,
Wicked Princess is the second book in Stella and Sebastian’s trilogy and the first couples story in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series. This book is a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.

The Chosen One
I vow. You vow. We vow.
Barrington University is home of the Lords, a secret society that requires their blood in payment. They are above all—the most powerful men in the world. They devote their lives to violence in exchange for power. And during their senior year, they are offered a chosen one.
People think growing up with money is freeing, but I promise you, it’s not. My entire life has been planned out for me. I never got the chance to do what I wanted until Ryat Alexander Archer came along and gave me an option for a better life. He offered me what no one else ever had—freedom.
I chose to be his. He made me believe that anyway, but it was just another lie. A way that the Lords manipulate you into doing what they want.
After being sucked into the dark, twisted world of the Lords, I embraced my new role and allowed Ryat to parade me around like the trophy I was to him. But like all things, what started out as a game soon became a fight for survival. And the only way out was death.

Wanting You Close

Archer & Everleigh duet, #2

Wanting You Close is now available on all retailers!

I never imagined my new roommate would be the man I’d actually fall for. Though I don’t get close to the people I sleep with, he’s been my exception. Archer acts emotionally unavailable while he focuses on starting over, but our connection is too strong to ignore.
He’s rugged on the outside and sweet on the inside—the opposite of my usual type. I see the way his eyes gaze up and down my body, making it harder to keep my feelings in check. Knocking down his walls is no easy task, especially with my brother interfering, but I refuse to give up.
When lines are crossed and emotions bubble over, trouble finds us. We both have pasts that have leaked into our present—now I’m scared it’ll destroy the one secret we’ve been keeping

Blog Tour – Head Over Hooves by Erin Nicholas

Head Over Hooves, a small town, holiday fling rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available today!

You know in movies where the big city girl lands in a small town for the holidays and falls for the hunky guy who saves Christmas?

This isn’t that story.

But this guy does look fantastic in flannel. And out of flannel…

Finding true love with his one-and-only soul mate? Drew Ryan’s given up on that.

But a hot holiday fling in Louisiana, far from his responsibilities and good guy image back home, is now on the top of his list for Santa.

So when he’s knocked on his ass—literally—by a Christmas elf who’s stealing a sleigh full of gifts and using his reindeer to commit the crime, he definitely doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

This holiday couldn’t get any worse for Rory Robins.

First, her hair wasn’t supposed to turn green. It’s not even Christmas green.

And the elf costume wasn’t supposed to be two sizes too small.

And her con-man father wasn’t supposed to show up and go all real-life-Grinch on her beloved new hometown.

And she definitely wasn’t supposed to run into anyone while trying to fix the problem. Especially not the hunky guy who already seems too good to be true.

But he does have a way of making her “cocoa” even hotter and a whole lot sweeter…

Still, he lives in Iowa. The only good thing her father ever gave her was a healthy distrust of men who are never around. She’s not doing a long-distance thing.

This little fling is only going to last as long as the temporary color of her hair.

Only nothing seems to be fading. And she might be asking Santa for just one more thing…

Blog Tour – Far From Bliss by Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak

Far From Bliss, an all new must read novel, filled with emotion, angst and lust that will leave you on the edge of your seat from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak, is available now!

Shattered by the past

Michael Novak was a US Marshal with his whole life figured out. Right up until the woman he called partner betrayed him. He’s been hiding in Bliss, CO, trying to pull himself out of the darkness. The only bright light is Lucy Carson. Something about Trio’s favorite waitress calls to him, but he can’t trust his instincts anymore.

Yearning for the future

Lucy has loved Tyler since they were kids, but he never seemed to feel the same way. She worried she would never want a man the way she does Ty, and then Michael grumbled his way into her world. Beyond the broody exterior she sees a burning fire in his eyes, and she is drawn to that flame.

The time is finally right

Ty knows Lucy is the one for him, but Lucy wrote him off romantically long ago. If he could get her to see him in a different light, he knows she would realize that they’re perfect for each other. His obstacle is the town’s reclusive former lawman, Michael. But this is Bliss. A rival can turn into a partner for the right woman. And Lucy is definitely the right woman.

Ty approaches Michael with a plan to get Lucy between them. A bargain is made, and Lucy is their target. But Lucy is already in much more dangerous crosshairs. Murder has come to Bliss, and Lucy is at the center of the investigation.

Review – Savage Hearts by JT Geissinger

57101804

Savage Hearts; Queens and Monsters #3 
(An interconnected standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 19, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Romcom/Mafia Romance

Author: J.T. Geissinger

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Dark and steamy while filled with laughter, this is totally my kink…yessssss! Savage Hearts is mafia romance with a humorous twist. It’s funny from beginning to end and filled with delicious men the entire way.

Oh my gosh Riley is funny. I snickered through so many chapters, okay, every chapter Riley appeared in, especially with her inner thoughts, but seriously, this is a mafia romance front and center, but I love how Geissinger weaves so much comedy through her stories. It’s truly my favorite thing.

Riley gets a call from her estranged sister, Sloane who is getting married to Declan O’Donnell (two characters front and center from her last book). These two sisters are snarky 1000% and while they are funny together, just wait until Riley gets her eyes set upon Malek Antonov. I don’t think this girl takes anything in her life seriously and I love her more for it.

Malek is an assassin for the Russian Bratva and he’s set his sights on taking out Declan. He gets a tad distracted by Riley and considering his job normally involves murder Mal ends up padding his resume with a few extra job skills by the time he’s back in Russia.

Every chapter in Savage Hearts is funny and this couple has a unique beginning for sure. I’d also say that even if the first books in this series haven’t been read there is enough information added to catch up without being lost.

Synopsis:

Savage (adjective):
1) Not domesticated; wild and untamed
2) A brutal or vicious person
3) Malek Antonov

When my older sister calls out of the blue to announce she’s getting married, it’s a shock. She’s not the settling-down kind, and we haven’t spoken in almost three years.

Even more of a shock? Sloane wants me to visit her and meet her new fiancé. Curious, I decide to take her up on the offer.

I should’ve known something was wrong when she wouldn’t tell me where I’d be going. I should’ve known things were odd when she sent a private jet to pick me up. But there’s no way in hell I could’ve ever guessed what would happen when I finally meet her fiancé.

Declan O’Donnell.
Head of the Irish Mob.
Target of a savage Bratva assassin who wants revenge for the murder of his brother.

Now, I’m thousands of miles from home, I’m smack in the middle of a mafia war, and I’ve got a Russian assassin who’s decided he likes the looks of me.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.
They never met Malek Antonov.

Author’s Note
This book features Sloane’s little sister, Riley, and Malek, the Russian assassin who wants revenge on Declan for killing his brother, Mikhail, in Carnal Urges. They’re both new characters. There will be appearances from everyone in the two prior books, including Kage/Nat, Sloane/Declan, and your favorite side characters.

Diego’s fate remains undetermined. He’s in Savage Hearts as well, but I’m not sure if I’ll give him his own book or not.

Review – Better With You by Brit Benson

57992122. sy475

Better With You; Better Love #2 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 23, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Enemies to Lovers/New Adult Romance

Author: Brit Benson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Better With You is hot, emotional and thought provoking. A truly sensational read for a new author to me.

This book was an emotional rollercoaster. As I sat down and buckled in the book immediately took me on a ride that was fantastic. I experienced passion and anger, plus I was right there for all the shock and hurt while dying for the second chance between these two lovers and melting for all the romance. The descriptions of the baked goods was mouth watering and then the tears….do you know how hard it is to read while crying? The last several chapters had me weeping over and over again. Every moment was perfect and it is easy to say that I will be reading Brit Benson again.

Bailey and Riggs come from two different worlds and yet they share one fierce passion, baking. They also have several similar interests, but it’s baking that actually brings them together and also sort of pulls them apart.

Bailey doesn’t trust easily and when Riggs breaks that trust he has a mountain to climb, but when Bailey lets down her fortress of a forcefield she realizes that her mountain might be a molehill and she might end up losing the best thing she’s ever had.

This is the kind of story that will stick with you long after you’ve read it, but prepare with lots of tissues when you do.

Synopsis:

Riggs Stanton is a thief.

He’s also a liar, a jerk, and a playboy jock.
Sure, I might have thought we had a connection.
I might have thought he was worth breaking my “no dating” rule.
He might have even given me the best orgasm I’ve ever experienced to date.
But it was a farce.
A trick.
Another lie.
And I don’t make mistakes twice.

Now he says he needs me.
One week of my help and I never have to deal with him again.
For ten grand, I can suffer anything for seven days.
Even Riggs Stanton.

Except…

The more time I spend with him, the more I get to know him, the more I question myself.
What if what we shared before was real, and it’s everything else that’s fake?

**Better With You is the second interconnected standalone in the Better Love series by Brit Benson.

This enemies to lovers new adult romance is sassy, sexy, and has a guaranteed HEA.

It is not necessary to read Love You Better before enjoying Better With You, though this book will contain minor spoilers for book one.

Review – The Ritual by Shantel Tessier

58941251

The Ritual 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: November 19, 2021

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

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Dark, gritty, and oh so filthy. Shantel lifts the blindfold off of a moraless secret society and it’s sinfully delicious.

Ryat has known he would be a Lord his entire life. His father, his father’s father, and so forth have all been members of this secret society. Lords are important members of society, anything from senators to CEO’s and they are lawless within their world. Ryat loves the order, the rush, the power, the dominance of it all and he’s been a stellar member following every rule. Now it’s senior year and it’s time for his reward and her name is Blakely.

There are so many layers to this story, which Shantel is a master at revealing at the opportune time. Then she gives the appearance that nothing is what is seems until your mind is completely blown. This is what makes her storytelling brilliant! Her twisty plots intertwined with dark themes continually draw me back to her books. The Ritual is right up there as one that had me turning pages at all hours needing to figure out what was going to happen next. I loved it!

The Ritual is dark and totally pushes boundaries with how filthy it is, but everything is perfectly in line with these characters and fits within the bound of their kink. She does give warning in the beginning so heed them if they are too much for you, but it’s all part of the plot and fits the lives of the characters. Enjoy the darkness, I did.

Synopsis:

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

THE CHOSEN ONE

I vow. You vow. We vow.

Barrington University is home of the Lords, a secret society that requires their blood in payment. They are above all—the most powerful men in the world. They devote their lives to violence in exchange for power. And during their senior year, they are offered a chosen one.

People think growing up with money is freeing, but I promise you, it’s not. My entire life has been planned out for me. I never got the chance to do what I wanted until Ryat Alexander Archer came along and gave me an option for a better life. He offered me what no one else ever had—freedom.

I chose to be his. He made me believe that anyway, but it was just another lie. A way that the Lords manipulate you into doing what they want.

After being sucked into the dark, twisted world of the Lords, I embraced my new role and allowed Ryat to parade me around like the trophy I was to him. But like all things, what started out as a game soon became a fight for survival. And the only way out was death.

New Release – Head Over Hooves by Erin Nicholas

Head Over Hooves, a small town, holiday fling rom com from New York Times bestselling author Erin Nicholas is available today!

You know in movies where the big city girl lands in a small town for the holidays and falls for the hunky guy who saves Christmas?

This isn’t that story.

But this guy does look fantastic in flannel. And out of flannel…

Finding true love with his one-and-only soul mate? Drew Ryan’s given up on that.

But a hot holiday fling in Louisiana, far from his responsibilities and good guy image back home, is now on the top of his list for Santa.

So when he’s knocked on his ass—literally—by a Christmas elf who’s stealing a sleigh full of gifts and using his reindeer to commit the crime, he definitely doesn’t expect to fall head over heels.

This holiday couldn’t get any worse for Rory Robins.

First, her hair wasn’t supposed to turn green. It’s not even Christmas green.

And the elf costume wasn’t supposed to be two sizes too small.

And her con-man father wasn’t supposed to show up and go all real-life-Grinch on her beloved new hometown.

And she definitely wasn’t supposed to run into anyone while trying to fix the problem. Especially not the hunky guy who already seems too good to be true.

But he does have a way of making her “cocoa” even hotter and a whole lot sweeter…

Still, he lives in Iowa. The only good thing her father ever gave her was a healthy distrust of men who are never around. She’s not doing a long-distance thing.

This little fling is only going to last as long as the temporary color of her hair.

Only nothing seems to be fading. And she might be asking Santa for just one more thing…

New Release – Wanting You Close by Kennedy Fox

Wanting You Close

Archer & Everleigh duet, #2

Wanting You Close is now available on all retailers!

I never imagined my new roommate would be the man I’d actually fall for. Though I don’t get close to the people I sleep with, he’s been my exception. Archer acts emotionally unavailable while he focuses on starting over, but our connection is too strong to ignore.
He’s rugged on the outside and sweet on the inside—the opposite of my usual type. I see the way his eyes gaze up and down my body, making it harder to keep my feelings in check. Knocking down his walls is no easy task, especially with my brother interfering, but I refuse to give up.
When lines are crossed and emotions bubble over, trouble finds us. We both have pasts that have leaked into our present—now I’m scared it’ll destroy the one secret we’ve been keeping
