Blurb:

He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than the rose. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it’s too late to save myself from his clutches.

I belong to him.

New Release – Tease Me Once by W. Winters

Declan Cross has a story… and he’d like to tell you every sordid detail of it. 

Tease Me Once by Willow Winters  is now live!

From USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling romance author, W Winters, comes a provocative tale of a club designed for wealthy sinners.  It’s a story crafted for those of us who crave the villain.

Not everyone knows about The Club, which is by design.  The main floor entertains the elite.  There are dim lights, stolen touches and the liquor flows to ensure the guests get exactly what they want.  There are high profile clients, masks and collars, contracts and secrets in every corner. 

But it’s what lies beneath these floors, down the spiral staircase, that intrigues me the most.

There’s a man who stays in the corner of the darkest rooms.  In this world of sinful tastes, he doesn’t hide his face like the rest of them; he’s not concerned with anonymity in the least.

Declan Cross is powerful, brooding and his dark eyes speak of damage that my soul begs to unravel.  I’ve always been drawn to men who are rough around the edges, the bad guys so to speak… but he’s a kind of brutal that scares me. 
So I promised myself I’d stay away. 
I swore up and down, I would never give in to the fantasies that haunt me at night.

One night changed everything.  He knows I witnessed everything that happened.  There are no deals or negotiations with men like him. 

He made it known in no uncertain terms what he desired most… I saw something I shouldn’t have.  And now I’m his.

Tease Me Once is the beginning of a series.  Prepare for everything seductive and beautifully dark.

Meet Willow Winters

I started writing after having my little girl, Evie, December of 2015. All during my pregnancy with her I read. I only wanted to read romance novels and I read everything I could get my hands on. I would read a book a day — sometimes two. In January I was staying up late with her and just thinking of all these stories. They came to me constantly. I finally sat down and just started writing. I always wanted to do it so I figured, why not?

I never thought I would reach this point of success to be honest. It’s insane to me that I have connected with so many readers.

And I love each and every one of them for all of their support. I’ll be honest, some days are HARD. I have my littles during the day and I write at night. Some days are just simply exhausting and then I hear from a reader and it motivates me to push through and keep writing.  I couldn’t be more grateful for this wonderful career.

Willow Winters is so happy to be a USA Today, Wall Street Journal and #1 Contemporary Best Selling Author!

Tease Me Once; Shame on You #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/BDSM/Dark Romance

Author: W. Winters

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A dark, intensely passionate story shrouded in mystery.

Declan Cross is a dangerous man, the devil in fine clothing, sin incarnate. He’s currently walking a fine line on tracking down an informant for the FBI, making sure his family stays safe, and falling for the woman who is quickly stealing every thought and possibly becoming his everything.

Braelynn needed a fresh start and her best friend, Scarlet, suggested a job at an exclusive club. Braelynn never thought she’d fall for the owner, a man she once knew as a sad, beaten down by life boy. Declan is no longer that boy, but an intimidating man who ignites her world and opens her up to pleasure beyond her imagination.

While these two share intense passion, they don’t share honesty. There are secrets between them that may destroy everything…and this is only the beginning to their story.

Hot times, domination, BDSM, and dark moments make up the first part Declan and Braelynn’s book. A 4.5 star read.

But it’s what lies beneath these floors, down the spiral staircase, that intrigues me the most.There’s a man who stays in the corner of the darkest rooms. In this world of sinful tastes, he is the ruler, the devil, the boss. Declan Cross.

I knew him once when times were different and the years have changed everything.

He makes me an offer, one that speaks to the very soul of my desire. One I can’t say no to and one that changes everything.

Tease Me Once is the beginning of a series. Prepare for everything seductive and beautifully dark.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Excerpt:

“Shit, babe, we’re sorry, okay? We didn’t know how it would go down, we only knew—”

“It doesn’t matter.” I shake my head, feeling tears burn the backs of my eyes. “What’s done is done.”

“You don’t need to do this,” he says, taking another step toward me. “We can kiss and make up and everything—”

“If you say everything will be okay, I swear to god I’ll kick you in the balls.”

“Feisty.” He chuckles, and Wes and Rhett snort.

“This isn’t funny. I’m trying to be serious and you’re—”

“You’re prancing around in those itty-bitty panties, sucking on your fingers like a porn star and you expect us to take you seriously?” Rhett stands, folding his arms over his chest. “I hate to tell you, princess, but you’ve got nobody fooled.”

“I hate you.” The words spill from lips before I can stop them.

“But you love the way my cock feels buried deep inside of you.” He stalks toward me, slow, sure steps like a predator stalking its prey.

“Stay the hell back, Savage.”

“Or what? You’ll kick me in the balls?” His lips twist with amusement. “Didn’t you get the memo, baby. I like a little pain, and if it means I get in your pussy, bring. It. On.”

“There’s something very wrong with you.” I shake my head, all too aware that he’s destroying my resolve.

Rhett reaches me, snatching the jar of chocolate spread from my hand. Shoving his finger inside, he scoops out a big dollop and pushes it toward my lips. “Suck.”

“Fuck you.”

“That’s the plan, princess. Went over forty-eight hours without being inside you, don’t plan on waiting another hour.”

“Oh yeah?” My brow lifts as I brace the back of the counter. With a big push, I leap down and take off toward the bedroom. “Guess you’ll have to catch me first.”

“Fucking crazy bitch,” I hear Rhett mutter as Dane and Wes explode with laughter.

We all know how this ends, and deep down, I want it.

I want them.

But I have no objections to making them work for it first. After all, they need to remember that I’m their queen.

And it’s time they get on their knees and beg for my forgiveness.

Blurb:

The final instalment in the dark romance series from the bestselling author of the Rebels at Sterling Prep series…

Loving one guy is hard.

Loving three… well, it should be more than a girl like Sadie Ray Dalton can handle.

But Sadie knows where she belongs, and it’s right beside her guys.

Life in Savage Falls is finally calming down. Dane is preparing to step up and take over the Red Ridge Sinners, Rhett is accepting an unconventional life with his princess, and Wes is adapting to his new role within the club.

But another enemy is circling—one who’s closer than they realize.

One who won’t stop until the Sinners MC are on their knees.

Sadie and her guys all want their happily-ever-after, but they should know by now, nothing in life comes easy.

One last time, they’re going to have to fight for it.

And hope everyone makes it out alive.

SEVER is a full length dark enemies-to-lovers/bully romance. This is a why choose novel, meaning the main character has more than one love interest. It is book four in the series and must be read after SAVAGE, SACRIFICE, and SACRED. It contains mature content that some readers may find distressing.

Blog Tour – The Bratva’s Heir by Jane Henry and Sophie Lark

She doesn’t know it yet, but Clare is mine.
Mine to train. Mine to protect. And mine to control…

The Bratva’s Heir, an all-new standalone in Underworld Kings Series by USA Today bestselling author Jane Henry and Sophie Lark is now available!

Prison’s a dark, bleak place.
But Clare brings me light.
My sweet little bird will be my ticket to freedom.
The first time I saw her, I had to have her.
From her big, dark eyes, to the curves she can’t conceal…
The way she can only hold my gaze so long.
The way she shivers every time I move inside these chains.
And most of all, the way she’ll bend the rules when I order her to…
I know a natural submissive when I see one.
Her degrees and titles don’t change who she is: a woman who will bend to my will.
She doesn’t know it yet, but Clare is mine.
Mine to train. Mine to protect. And mine to control…

Excerpt


“I’m nothing special,” she says, bluntly.
I don’t know why she’s so intent on considering herself plain—she may not have the
obvious flashiness of a certain sort of woman, but Clare’s beauty is all the more powerful for its
subtlety. The delicacy and luminescence of her skin, like the slightest touch would bruise it…
those large, dark eyes, so liquid that they almost seem tearful…
Her fragility makes me want to do terrible things to her.
And yet, I almost want to protect her, too… like a little bird that could fit in the hollow of
my hand… a nightingale, singing only for me…
“Don’t be modest. You’ve seen the way men look at you. Tell the truth, Clare.”
She bites the edge of her lip, irritated at my use of her first name, and at my commanding
tone.
Still, I see the way that tone takes hold of her, compelling her to answer me.
“Men always stare at women,” she says.
“They stare at you more… how could they not?”
“Mr. Rogov,” she says, sharply. “I told you, we’re not here to discuss me.”
“I remember,” I say.
But I think she will discuss herself if I push her. Because no matter how hard Ms. Nightingale
tries to be stern, to maintain professionalism, I see the truth behind her thin façade. I see how she
flinches when I bark, how she squirms under my stare. How her eyes flit up to meet mine when I
use a gentler tone, and how her cheeks flush pink when I compliment her. Clare has been raised
to respect authority. To crave it, even…

Review – Dangerous Temptation by Giana Darling

58504358. sy475

Dangerous Temptation; Dark Dream #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: October 26, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Taboo/Age Gap/Dark Romance

Author: Giana Darling

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A taboo romance that also brought tears to my eyes!!

First of all, this is my first Giana Darling romance and WOW what a book to dive into. Secondly, I LOVE the entirety of the Morelli and Constantine worlds and Giana has made a fantastic contribution to the Midnight Dynasty.

Now, most taboo romance books I’ve read are sizzling hot with forbidden themes and dark undertones and of course taboo tropes. However, this is the first one that brought tears to my eyes multiple times. Seriously, over and over again I was wiping my eyes and then in the next chapter I was back diving into the darkness that was this story. Holy Smokes!! The highs and lows of this story was like nothing else!!

Tiernan is an evil Morelli, although he calls himself Tiernan McTiernan. Don’t worry, his name makes sense in the story. He is forbidden temptation, he is the dangling apple hanging from the tree in Eden. He has nefarious intentions and is up to no good. Yeah, he’s dark and delicious all wrapped up in a smoking hot package, but then he displays these sides of vulnerability and ugh….he’s even hotter. I am totally eating that apple all the way to the core. Does he have issues, of course he does, that’s why he has nefarious plans, but that’s also why I love this trope. A seriously bad guy that can be reformed, am I right?!

Bianca Belcante is sassy, young, and basically the matriarch for her household because her mother doesn’t look after her or her little brother, Brando. (BTW, he is the sweet, tear inducing, you are going to need tissues, adorableness in this story.) Bianca will do anything for her brother and this is how she ends up living under the roof of one Tiernan Morelli-I mean McTiernan, after her mother dies. Does Bianca also have issues…oh yeah, but this is also why she works well with Tiernan. They challenge one another and basically bring out the worst and the best in each other.

This is only the first part of their story and it ends on a cliffhanger…gah…I need more of their sinful story now!

Synopsis:

He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than the rose. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it’s too late to save myself from his clutches.

I belong to him.

EXCERPT

“You misunderstand the nature of my guardianship over you,” he said, his voice soft and quiet, a direct contrast to the cruel tip of his scarred mouth and the hard words they formed. “I am not interested in coddling you, or tucking you in at night and wishing you sweet dreams. In fact, I am not interested in you at all beyond what you can do for me.” His fingers reached out to run lightly down my cheek before they grasped my chin in a powerful grip. “I am going to put considerable time and money into transforming you from this boring little thing into a woman worthy of the McTiernan household. I am going to send you to the best school, give you the best clothes, and teach you to be a lady and not this pathetic little girl. I am going to make your wildest dreams come true, Bianca. And in return? You are going to obey my rules.”

“What rules?” I whispered, embarrassed by my husky tone.

He was too close, that palpable power and ruthless energy emanating off his body like heat waves, buffeting me again and again until I felt light-headed. When I swayed slightly toward him, the hand tattooed with the rose clamped hard over my hip to steady me.

The bite of pain shouldn’t have sent tingles down my spine straight to my sex, but it did.

It did and I almost hissed with the pleasure of it.

“Oh, they’re simple even for a little girl like you to follow,” he promised, his eyes cold enough to burn my skin while his hands on my flesh felt like fire. “One. You do everything I say as soon as I say it without hesitation or attitude.”

I snorted, then winced as the fingers on my chin flexed tighter. “You’ve got to be kidding me. I think your name has confused you. You are not a lord and I am not your vassal.”

He bent closer until I could count every one of those thick black lashes, see the darker emerald ring of green around the pale irises. I held my breath, from fear or to block the assault of his sinful scent on my senses, I wasn’t entirely sure.

“For all intents and purposes, I own you. So, if I tell you to make me breakfast, you do it. If I command you to wear a certain dress to a specific ball, you do it.” His voice dropped deeper, a vibration I felt conducted through his hands on my body straight into my bloodstream. “If I order you to your knees, Bianca? You get on your knees, and you do it with a gracious smile.”

“You’re a fucking monster,” I hissed. “A perverted, fucked-up monster. If you’re hoping taking in two orphans will do something for your image, think again. There’s no hiding what you are, Tiernan. Not your thousand-dollar suits or your plastic smiles. Not even Brando and me.” I rolled to my tiptoes and snarled the next words. “You’re an unlovable man with a hollow heart.”

He ignored my outburst entirely, but for a tiny muscle that pulsed in the square-cut edge of his strong jaw. “Two.” The word landed like a whip strike, making me jump slightly in his hold. “You do not touch anything in this house outside of Brandon’s room or your own. This is a house, not a home, and you’d do well not to get too comfortable here. There are secrets in the walls and monsters in the attic that eat little girls like you for breakfast.”

“Brando’s seven, I can’t tell him not to be curious,” I argued. “Please, be reasonable.”

“I’ll be reasonable when you show me that you can follow the rules,” he promised. “In fact, why don’t we start right now?”

My heart stopped, snagged in his dangerous web, and then began to thrash.

“Give me your locket,” he ordered, already moving his hand from my chin to the silver chain.

I jerked away, but there was nowhere to go. Pressed up against the vanity by his great hulking body, I was effectively trapped. My hand darted to his wrist, fingers pressing deeply into his skin as I tried to wrench his grip loose.

“No,” I gritted between my clenched teeth as I struggled to stop him from taking the only material possession that was dear to me. “NO!”

He ignored me.

My nails tore through his skin, leaving bleeding welts in his hand and wrist the way the rose had once done to me.

Still, he pulled inexorably on the locket until with one tiny clink that sounded like a gunshot to my ears, the silver chain broke apart in his hands and came clean away from my neck.

When I lunged for it, he held it aloft, dangling easily out of my reach even when I jumped for it. I made another grab for it, but Tiernan’s free hand lashed out to grab my ponytail, yanking it back to keep me away.

Only when I was pinned, struggling helplessly, crying even though I hated myself for showing him how much the locket meant to me, did Tiernan lean close enough for his lips to whisper against my cheek.

“Let this be a lesson to you, little thing. If you will not give me what I want, I will take it from you.”

Blurb:

He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose for my mother.

Months later, Tiernan Morelli lays red roses on my mother’s grave. That same day, he tells me that he is my new guardian.

Cover Reveal – Loyalty in the Shadows by Veronica Eden

The bestselling Crowned Crows series from Veronica Eden continues with Book II, 𝙇𝙤𝙮𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙮 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙎𝙝𝙖𝙙𝙤𝙬𝙨. Ready to go deeper into the shadows of the dark city full of secrets and power? They say crows have a long memory. Never cross a crow.

𝑻𝒉𝒆 𝑪𝒓𝒐𝒘𝒔 𝒅𝒐𝒏’𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒚.

𝑻𝒉𝒆𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒓𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒐𝒏 𝒚𝒐𝒖𝒓 𝒅𝒆𝒔𝒑𝒆𝒓𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏.

𝑾𝒉𝒂𝒕 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒔𝒂𝒄𝒓𝒊𝒇𝒊𝒄𝒆 𝒕𝒐 𝒃𝒖𝒚 𝒕𝒉𝒆𝒊𝒓 𝒉𝒆𝒍𝒑?

 

𝘐𝘴𝘭𝘢

Thorne Point sunk its claws in me at a young age.

I refused to let its harsh truths snuff out my light.

When an attempt to kidnap me is stopped, I know they’ll never give up.

The city’s seedy underbelly won’t let me escape forever.

My only choice is to run into the arms of monsters for safety.

The Crows have a terrifying reputation, and Levi Astor lives up to it.

But my protective monster will never be worse than the ones who buried their ugliness deep in me.

 

𝘓𝘦𝘷𝘪

𝘓𝘦𝘷𝘪 𝘈𝘴𝘵𝘰𝘳 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘦𝘳 𝘢𝘳𝘳𝘦𝘴𝘵.

Our unchallenged rule over this city is crumbling.

We’ll hunt down the ones behind this and make them pay.

Guarding the senator’s daughter isn’t on my agenda, yet I couldn’t ignore her if I tried.

Sunshine might break through the shadows, but it will only illuminate what makes me a deadly monster.

Isla Vonn should run in the opposite direction instead of into my arms.

Because everyone fears the Leviathan in Thorne Point.

http://mybook.to/RiotAct

USA Today Bestselling Author, Callie Hart, delivers a twisted and edgy new dark romance tale, featuring a girl with nothing left to lose and a broken boy with a heart as black as his soul.

Want something? Pax will take it from you.

Love something? Pax will destroy it.

Love him? Heaven help you. You’d have to be the stupidest person to walk the face of the earth.

PAX

I don’t do complicated. I sure as hell don’t do love. With graduation in sight, I’ve made it almost four years at Wolf Hall without getting tangled up in BS with girls.
I especially want nothing to do with her:
Presley. Maria. Witton. Chase.
The timid little mouse with the red hair, who can’t even look my way without hyperventilating. She’s nothing to me. Beautiful, sure, but I’ve had plenty of beautiful women.
I’m perfectly content ignoring her…
…until her life is suddenly in my hands.

PRES

I’ve loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him.
The cruel, inked anarchist of Riot House.
He’s wicked, and he’s cold, and there’s nothing good left in him.
I fear him almost as much as I crave him.
With only a few weeks left until graduation, all I have to do is keep my head down, and then I’ll be free; I can leave Mountain Lakes and my obsession with Pax Davis in my rearview mirror.
But the demons I’ve been hiding for years now are growing restless…
…and Pax is thing that will keep them at bay.

This is not an act of kindness.
Not an act of love.
Not an act of forgiveness.
You’ll find no redemption here.
This is the final riot.

ACT ACCORDINGLY.

RIOT ACT is a 137,000-word standalone book in the Crooked Sinners Series and does not end on a cliffhanger. This book contains dark content that may be considered a trigger for some readers, and as such is recommended for readers 17+

Cover Reveal - 2021, New Releases

Cover Reveal – Wicked Trials by Elena Lawson

Cover Reveal 

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 – Wrath by Coralee June

Wrath (Malice Mafia Book 2) by [CoraLee June]

Wrath; Malice Mafia #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: October 21, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Mafia/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Love is hard. Love to three men is even harder, especially strong, controlling, slightly deranged men. I need to say I LOVE Coralee’s deranged men, they are the absolute best!!!!

Juliet is literally withering away taking care of Nick, William, and Anthony. Having time for her Grams, her schooling, much less herself is taking its toll. She will never choose between the men she’s given her heart too, she loves them all differently, yet also equally, but she may lose herself trying to do it all…sound familiar ladies?!

Wrath is full of Coralee’s dark humor, which is one of the biggest reasons why I not only love Coralee books, but especially fell in love with Malice. Laughing while darkness is raining down around everyone, I’ve discovered, is my new favorite joy in life.

Anthony and Juliet together still bring the best combination of dark laughs for well, reasons…his madness is weirdly adorable and endearing. He is the heart of the brothers and even with his morbid fascinations, he’s just darn likable. However, be prepared to have your heart a little broken this time around…I won’t say more, but with laughter comes some tears.

A close second to my lovely Anthony is Nick’s inner monologue. He of course wants to murder everyone, he has zero patience, and honestly, he’s kind of adorable in his controlling, over-the-top, can’t live without Juliet, overbearing ways. I know, total caveman, but his growly ways are really hot and sweet in a stalkery-lover way. Will his controlling ways eventually ruin everything? Perhaps, but a man can learn…right?

Now, William…what has happened to this man? Perhaps it’s being stuck in the middle and always having to take care of everybody and everything, but William, my heart breaks a bit for the abuse his emotions take, but he’s not innocent in how he gets treated. He pushes and pokes and asks for the beating of his emotions too. This man can only push so much as well before he eventually breaks. He is the most like Juliet in wanting to take care of everyone, but unlike Juliet, he’s silent about it. Juliet likes his silent moments, but is it enough for him?

This group is no where near their happy ending. Working on their dynamic and how to love one another, all still as brothers, and as one family is still a work in progress.

Wrath is full of darkness, a new villain is introduced, and a continued love story is still flowing that made this book UNPUTDOWNABLE!! Coralee never fails to wow and amaze me.

About the Author:
CD Reiss has a long history of aimlessly moving from place to place. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she earned a master’s degree in cinematic writing from USC. After graduation, she ultimately failed to have one line of dialog put on film, but stayed in Hollywood out of spite.
Since screenwriting was going nowhere, she switched to novels. Soon after, luck arrived with a complete set of baggage. She now has over two dozen titles under her belt. Two of those are NY Times Bestsellers and a handful more are USA Today bestsellers. Her audiobooks have won APA Audie Awards and Earphones Awards, swelling her ego to an inhuman size.
She lives with her family, two cats and her long-suffering husband in a small Hollywood house that’s been outfitted with huge, ego-sized doorways.

EXCERPT

“What do you want from me?” I force out as his grip only gets tighter.

He smiles once more, but this time, there’s no amusement in it. Only malice.

“I want to hurt you. Punish you. Ruin you. Break you,” he hisses, almost as if he’s actually talking to himself. “I want to make you cry, beg, plead with me for mercy despite the fact that you know it’ll never come.”

My head spins as I try to register his words and the seriousness behind each and every threat.

“That’s some heavy shit for someone you just met.”

“You have no idea who you are, do you, Doukas?”

Blurb:

The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Review – The Bratva’s Heir by Jane Henry and Sophie Lark

57010166

The Bratva’s Heir; Underworld Kings 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: D/s/Dark/Mafia Romance

Author: Jane Henry and Sophie Lark

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A very powerful personality mixed with a soft submissive….the dynamic in this bratva novel was quite fascinating and while D/s isn’t a new trope for me, the thrill of an escaped convict pursing his innocence while his normal life isn’t exactly innocent per say, The Bratva’s Heir turned out to be quite the page turner.

Constantine Rogov is heir to the US Russian mafia. He lives a life of corruption and crime, so the fact that he’s in jail shouldn’t be a surprise. It’s actually the conviction itself that has Constantine upset and wanting to clear his name. When Claire Nightingale is sent to psychoanalyze him Constantine takes matters into his own hands, turns the tables on the young doctor, and basically “Harley Quinns” her over to the Dark side of thinking.

Claire Nightingale is a correctional Psychologist who is still learning and building her psychiatry business. Working at the prison is her way of giving back to a broken society, but she never thought her patient, Constantine, would be quite the trouble he ended up being.

I don’t know if Stockholm Syndrome is quite the right term, considering they didn’t spend a ton of time together before Claire became fascinated with Constantine, but this is the road they fall down together.  Attraction to an abductor and the abductee taking full advantage of it.

Constantine wants to find retribution for being wrongfully locked up and having Claire by his side is his ace in the hole, but he also begins falling for the woman who should just be a pawn.

Claire should know better than to fall for a patient. As a doctor of the mind, she knows all the pitfalls and tricks, but she can’t stop the landslide into the madness. Constantine interrogates her mind, her body, her soul and she’s weak when it comes to him. However, when the facts begin building up she no longer believes he’s mad and instead begins helping him. What began as madness might not be madness afterall.

The Bratva’s Heir is thrilling, intoxicating, and very steamy.

Synopsis:

Worlds collide in a brand-new mafia romance by Sophie Lark and Jane Henry.

A stand-alone novel in the Underworld Kings series

Prison’s a dark, bleak place.

But Clare brings me light.

My sweet little bird will be my ticket to freedom.

The first time I saw her, I had to have her.

From her big, dark eyes, to the curves she can’t conceal…

The way she can only hold my gaze so long.

The way she shivers every time I move inside these chains.

And most of all, the way she’ll bend the rules when I order her to…

I know a natural submissive when I see one.

Her degrees and titles don’t change who she is: a woman who will bend to my will.

She doesn’t know it yet, but Clare is mine.

Mine to train. Mine to protect. And mine to control…

Review – Wicked Knight by Tracy Lorraine

56157584. sy475

Wicked Knight; Knights Ridge Empire #1 
(# 1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: October 21, 2021

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Darkly hot, darkly dirty, darkly wicked!! These Wicked Knights are down right dirty and delicious and Stella…girrrlllll…she’s amazing, I love her so hard!

For all the Stella fans, her book is finally here and does not disappoint!! Wicked Knight is Tracy’s darkest and dirtiest book yet. It’s absolutely fantastic!

Seb and Stella drew me in right from the get go when I read the short novella (it’s currently free and I highly recommend reading it). Seb carries dark secrets and while we don’t know what they are right away, he hates Stella right from the get go.

Stella is not your ordinary teenager. She’s been brought up learning how to defend herself with daily training in weapons and fighting. Having a boy like Seb dislike her is the least of her problems as she’s used to being the new girl and dealing with jerkholes just like him at every new school she attends.

Her feisty attitude is addictive and I love her girl positive thinking. The few girls Stella does befriend…well, for Lorraine fans, I just say I was jumping for joy to see one of them.  This girl group is the best Tracy has put together yet.

As for Seb and his band of brothers, not only are they hot, but they also are a bunch I can hardly wait to flush out and get to know better as this series goes along. As Stella calls them, baby mafia, the guys are still learning the business under the Family, so they are scary, but they are also still teenage boys.

GAH!! Knights Ridge Empire as a series is just so, so good and I’m totally here for it!!

Synopsis:

What happened that night was meant to be a one-time thing.

I wasn’t meant to walk straight into him as I started my life over once more.

Dear readers,
Wicked Knight is the first book in Stella’s steamy, angsty high school bully romance duet. You can find her prequel, Wicked Summer Knight in the Hot Summer School Nights charity anthology.

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

Dear readers,

Wicked Knight is the first to my new angst-filled new adult mafia 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.

http://mybook.to/RiotAct

USA Today Bestselling Author, Callie Hart, delivers a twisted and edgy new dark romance tale, featuring a girl with nothing left to lose and a broken boy with a heart as black as his soul.

Want something? Pax will take it from you.

Love something? Pax will destroy it.

Love him? Heaven help you. You’d have to be the stupidest person to walk the face of the earth.

PAX

I don’t do complicated. I sure as hell don’t do love. With graduation in sight, I’ve made it almost four years at Wolf Hall without getting tangled up in BS with girls.
I especially want nothing to do with her:
Presley. Maria. Witton. Chase.
The timid little mouse with the red hair, who can’t even look my way without hyperventilating. She’s nothing to me. Beautiful, sure, but I’ve had plenty of beautiful women.
I’m perfectly content ignoring her…
…until her life is suddenly in my hands.

PRES

I’ve loved him from the moment I laid eyes on him.
The cruel, inked anarchist of Riot House.
He’s wicked, and he’s cold, and there’s nothing good left in him.
I fear him almost as much as I crave him.
With only a few weeks left until graduation, all I have to do is keep my head down, and then I’ll be free; I can leave Mountain Lakes and my obsession with Pax Davis in my rearview mirror.
But the demons I’ve been hiding for years now are growing restless…
…and Pax is thing that will keep them at bay.

This is not an act of kindness.
Not an act of love.
Not an act of forgiveness.
You’ll find no redemption here.
This is the final riot.

ACT ACCORDINGLY.

RIOT ACT is a 137,000-word standalone book in the Crooked Sinners Series and does not end on a cliffhanger. This book contains dark content that may be considered a trigger for some readers, and as such is recommended for readers 17+

About the Author:
CD Reiss has a long history of aimlessly moving from place to place. She finally settled in Los Angeles where she earned a master’s degree in cinematic writing from USC. After graduation, she ultimately failed to have one line of dialog put on film, but stayed in Hollywood out of spite.
Since screenwriting was going nowhere, she switched to novels. Soon after, luck arrived with a complete set of baggage. She now has over two dozen titles under her belt. Two of those are NY Times Bestsellers and a handful more are USA Today bestsellers. Her audiobooks have won APA Audie Awards and Earphones Awards, swelling her ego to an inhuman size.
She lives with her family, two cats and her long-suffering husband in a small Hollywood house that’s been outfitted with huge, ego-sized doorways.

Review – Riot Act by Callie Hart

58314028. sx318

Riot Act; Crooked Sinners #3 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: October 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Callie Hart

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Callie Hart has written an explosive book with a dynamic couple at the helm. A Phoenix and a Sinner – two similar souls who have lead very different lives, but collide in a firework of pain and color where their souls fall in love. A TEN star worthy book!!

As much as I love Wren Jacobi, Riot Act is now my favorite Crooked Sinner book. This story is engaging and is one that will be completely unforgettable. I was so engrossed in reading that I’d forget where I was, what day of the week it was, or even what time of day it was. Riot Act is a true masterpiece.

Pax Davis is a complex character. He lives life to the fullest – a young man with a YOLO mentality and also filled with sociopathic rage that boils just underneath his skin. His hair trigger personality can be fun one moment and then make it wish you’d never met him the very next – Pax is so interesting, I loved…LOVED getting inside his head.

One of three boys who live in Riot House, he’s just one of the fascinating characters that made up the three personalities that all fit together and are best friends who live in the lone house at the top of the mountain at Wolf Hall, but more than that they are ride or die brothers. Wren, Dash, and Pax each have their own unique traits and Pax has just been darn delicious getting to know in this final installment of the Crooked Sinners.

Presley Chase, who previously has been shy, timid and a total wallflower, rises from the ashes of her former self and becomes a glorious phoenix in this book. The old Pres is killed off and the new Presley is no longer living in the shadows, afraid of what she wants. Pax is confused, while he desperately desires the fiery redhead, a girl he never used to give a second glance to in the past. Now everywhere he turns Presley is in his sights. She’s glorious and he doesn’t know how to handle this new version or if he even wants to.

These two together are explosive, with chemistry through the stratosphere! It is crazy just how hot these two fire up the pages. Fans, air conditioning, and all the additional panties won’t prepare you.

Callie wrote a phenomenal book and I was riveted from the very beginning. I was turning pages so fast and I loved every word. Pax and Pres are a fantastic power couple, one that will fit perfectly with the other Riot House couples. Yes, I’m still torn up over Wren vs. Pax, it’s a tough war over who wins the number one spot…thankfully Callie gives all the boys some time in this book because I love them all. Yes, all the Sinners deserve a golden trophy. A naked golden trophy made in their likeness. 🙂

Mafia Queen; The DiLustro Arrangement #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: October 12, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Dark/Mafia Romance

Author: CD Reiss

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The final installment in the Mafia-DiLustro trilogy and war is on the horizon.

While a war has been a long time time coming, even though once upon a time Santino and Damiano were friends who grew up together, it was ancient artifact that came between them and poisoned what they had, spilling blood and fracturing their partnership.

There is a lot to unbox as this final book comes to a close. War, deception, grief, history, family dynamics, and an artifact that no one has actually seen, yet. Buckle up and hang on for quite a ride.

This last book was up and down with suspense and then moments of emotion. It was quite a rollercoaster. Violetta finds her sense of power after feeling powerless for quite a bit of the series. Where she had lost a lot of her fight, she found her inner backbone and earned her title of Mafia Queen. I understand sometimes a person has to lose everything to finally come back, but I was happy to see she found her spirit, Santino is a powerful man and needs a powerful woman by his side.

While Santino has fascinated me from the beginning, his single minded focus on obtaining the crown was also frustrating. I did enjoy seeing him fall more in love with his wife and open up a new side of himself in this last book. He is by no means a soft man, but for his wife he found the meaning of love and would certainly do anything for his queen.

This is a dark work with all the scruples of kill or be killed.  4.5 star read.

Synopsis:

What doesn’t kill you makes you a killer.

Santino DiLustro changed me. You can’t spend time in bed with the devil without getting addicted to the heat.
Before him, I was a girl. Innocent and weak.
Now, I’m a woman. A fighter. A killer.
I’ll burn the world down for him. Shatter the sky. But I will not break.

Excerpt:

When I open my eyes, the dim light only enters one. The other is swollen shut, but through the fog, I can make out a blurry dark blob in the center of flickering yellow light. A head. A man. The voice.

I am sitting. My wrists lay on the arms of a chair. I can’t move them.

“Mrs. DiLustro.” He has the voice of an old man and his breath stinks of fermented plaque. “I need to know—”

“Who are you?”

“Father Alfonso.” His reply is slow and drunken. “I officiated your wedding to Santino DiLustro.”

“Asshole.” I blink hard. Breathe in the incense. Scratch a sudden itch on my nose and cheek with an overly rough right hand, then lift my left off the arm of the chair.

Okay. So my arms are weak. Not tied down.

Itches attack my face. When I try to scratch my left eye, it tingles then explodes in pain like an afterthought.

“I cannot commit a sin,” Father Alfonso says. “Please. Tell me if your husband has died.”

My mind is clearing slowly, but I cannot fathom what Santino’s life or death has to do with a priest adding one more sin to a long, long list of them.

“He’s dead.” I scratch my jaw and rub a colony of itches from my right cheek. My hand feels rough as lace. “She killed him.”

I point to some place to the left where Gia exists in my mind, and I’m about to say her name when I realize my hand is lighter than usual.

Father Alfonso leaves, hunched, touching surfaces and walls until he finds the door before he clicks it closed. When I’m alone, I sit straight in the chair. Hold up my hand. My one good eye is full of gunk. I blink. Blink. Blink. When it clears, I know what the candlelight will reveal.

A room with plaster walls.

A tiny, darkened stained glass window.

I can’t see close. The world is crisscrossed by the net I’m caught inside.

But across the room… a thick wooden door. A cabinet with a small statue of the Virgin, surrounded by the unassertive yellow glow of candles.

When I scratch my face this time, it’s easier to identify the roughness of my fingertips.

I’m wearing a veil.

Throwing it back, I see clearly and hold my left hand in front of me. My ring. Rosetta’s ring. A meaningless assembly of rock and metal that my husband etched with a secret and gave to me.

It’s gone.

Blurb:

What doesn’t kill you makes you a killer.

Santino DiLustro changed me. You can’t spend time in bed with the devil without getting addicted to the heat.

Before him, I was a girl. Innocent and weak.

Now, I’m a woman. A fighter. A killer.

I’ll burn the world down for him. Shatter the sky. But I will not break.

No. I will rise up and destroy whoever dares to threaten what my king has built, because I am forever his queen.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Kings of Blood & Money
An Underworld Kings Series Standalone
Author: Ker Dukey
Genre: Mafia Romance
Release Date: October 8, 2021
BLURB
This is not a story of love.
This is a story of revenge and the bond created from it.

 Noah

The Gallo family took everything from us.
They killed my mother and sister, leaving me and my twin brother fighting for our lives.
My father was supposed to be there that night. He should have been there. Should have protected them—us.
When you strip a man of all he cares about, you’re left with a soulless entity seething with primal rage. He promised to turn Gallo’s bloodline to dust to get his retribution.
And he did.
All but one.

Freya

I was seven years old when I was taken in the night. I don’t remember much of life before that.
All I know now is the glaring eyes of a boy who hates me, and the comfort I find in the boy whose face mirrors his.
I’m not part of this family, but they’re all I have comparable to one.
To hate is easy.
And I do hate them.
But to love even in hate is what hardens you, strengthens you, gives you reason.
The truth is I shouldn’t love them, that all these years are leading somewhere I won’t want to go.
But I do…
Love them.
I love them both.
The only question left now is, do they love me?

EXCERPT

“You throttled me.” She levels me with a stiff glare.
“I remember seeing a bruise.” It was an impulse, a need to inflict pain with her pleasure, to ground myself.
Yanking the neck of her sweater down, she scowls. “Because you like to leave marks, right?”
A shadow passes through the room as I stand and stalk toward her, devouring the space between us. Tilting her chin with my forefinger and thumb, I trace the light bruises blemishing her soft, creamy skin. I got carried away, held her too tight. Leaning down, I whisper against her ear, “You want me to kiss them better?” Her intake of breath brings a smile to my lips. She likes the big bad wolf. No matter how much she tries to deny it, claim she hates me, her body doesn’t.
Fucking ditto. 
I swipe my tongue across her neck, capturing her with an arm around her waist. Her legs almost give in. She’s sensitive, her nerves firing. Closing my mouth over her sore little neck, I suck, kiss, caress the bare surface.
Pulling away to face her, my balls draw up at the unfiltered lust blazing in her eyes. “Ask me to kiss you,” I tell her.
Rapid breaths lift her chest up and down. “Ask me, Freya,” I command.
“No.” She closes her eyes, her tone husky. 
A dark chuckle rumbles past my lips as I grasp her jaw, cupping her beautiful face. “Fucking ask me.”
“I hate you.”
“I hate you too. Now fucking ask me.”
“Kiss me,” she cries. Not a plea, but shame. She’s ashamed at how fucking badly she burns for the monster who frightens her so much.
“Say my name,” I growl.
“Noah,” she whines.
“Kiss me, Noah,” I instruct.
Silence.
I tug her forward, inhaling all her sexual heat.
“Say it, Freya, and I’ll give you what you need.”
“Kiss me, Noah.” She sobs. My insides churn at the decision I make. Slamming my lips against hers, I ram my tongue past the seal of her delectable lips, taking my fill.

Blurb:

The truth is meant to set you free… but not my truth.

Mine has sent me deeper and darker, feeding my need for revenge. I want blood for those who wronged me and my family. And my so-called truth is ripping me apart, in a way lies never could.

Everyone else has moved on, but I can’t. Not until someone pays.

And it seems that fate is on my side this time, because the hellion girl from the graveyard is going to be my saving grace… and provide me with everything I crave.

The pain.

The vengeance.

The blood.

She has no idea what she’s been dragged into, but she’s going to regret every step she’s taken to get here.

Stella Doukas isn’t like any other girl I’ve encountered before.

She’s fierce, determined, and much stronger than I anticipated.

I might have met my match.

And that is not a good thing…

New Release – Incubastard by Charity B.

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Incubastard
Author: Charity B.
Genre: Dark Paranormal Romance
Release Date: October 7, 2021
BLURB

Mishka
Angels, demons… the afterlife.
I’d always thought they were bullshit.
Until all my misguided beliefs were proven wrong by an infuriating, flippant asshole with horns who has no concept of boundaries.
Summoning him was never the plan, especially since I’m not willing to do what it takes to send him back.
If I’ve learned anything from Loch, it’s that preconceived ideas are usually false, and the truth is much messier than fables.
The theory of good and evil is flawed.
Nothing is that simple.

Loch
The only side of human nature I’ve ever encountered is vile and perverse, depraved and cruel.
However, Mishka’s none of those things.
She’s an insufferable, snarky creature who makes me question everything I know about myself.
The longer I’m with her in this world, the less desperate I am to return to mine, which is absurd.
I am son of Asmodeus.
A prince spawned from lust to torment the damned.
The mortal realm is not where I belong.

Incubastard deals with Christian lore that does not align with the Bible. It is completely fictional. If this will make you uncomfortable, please do not read this book.

Content Warning: This novel contains graphic scenes depicting blood and gore along with sexually explicit content and violence. For mature audiences only.

The fucking son of LLTH and ASMODEUS MiEASHRD CHARITY B'


EXCERPT

Rubbing my hands over my face, I turn around to go to my room. My stomach lurches up to my chest, yet it still takes a second to register that there’s a hooded stranger with crossed arms leaning against the counter a mere few feet from me. As I open my mouth to scream, he lifts his head enough to show his devastatingly beautiful face wearing an impish grin.
Before a single sound can leave my lips, my skin pulsates with tingling waves that crawl down my arms and legs. I lose the ability to use my knees, forcing me to turn my back to him and grab the edge of the counter. Attempting to hold myself up, I involuntarily moan while tides of supreme ecstasy roll from between my legs. My hand slips, crashing a plate around my feet, but I can’t seem to care. The prodigious pulsing continues for such an inordinate amount of time, I think I may pass out. It’s an orgasm on LSD.
After what feels like an eternity, the frenzied vibrations begin to ebb, allowing my stiff fingers to release the counter. Somehow, I momentarily forgot about the man in the room with me.
Spinning around, I find him still standing there, wearing the same wicked smile. “You’re welcome.”
With darting glances, I search for something sharp. My mind finally catches up with the knowledge that I just had a spontaneous mega-orgasm in front of an intruder who may or may not be here to kill me. “Wh-what do you want?”
He scoffs, standing straight to reach his full, impressive height. “You called me, remember? I’m here to do whatever you desire.”
I don’t dare take my eyes off him while my hands continue fumbling behind me, nearly crying in relief when I wrap my fingers around the handle of a knife.
Seeing as I most certainly did not call him, he’s clearly off his meds. I try my best to keep my voice soft in a desperate effort to placate him. “I think you’re confused.” Attempting subtlety, I take tiny steps toward the kitchen doorway.
His chuckle makes my nerves snap one by one. “I’m clearly not the one who’s confused.” With tattooed hands, he tugs on the sleeves of his black leather jacket, walking toward me. I hold the knife out between us, clueless if I have the guts to use it. Narrowing his dark eyes, he reaches up to lower his worn brown hood, revealing more ink scrawled up his neck in weird symbols. “That’s not going to do shit to me, but you’re more than welcome to have at it. Although, it would be a bit rude, seeing as, like I said, you fucking called me.”
If my heart beats any harder, I’m going to blow chunks. “Please don’t kill me.”
His eyes narrow as if I insulted him. “Not allowed. Besides, I’d much rather fuck you.”
The way he speaks is incredibly odd, with an accent I’ve never heard. My gaze falls to his strange pants. What appears to be different tones of distressed leather are fused together into a unique patchwork. It’s also odd that his jacket looks brand new, yet the hood beneath it appears as weathered as his pants.
I shake the useless thoughts from my head, focusing back on the threat in front of me. His questionable fashion choices are not what I should be thinking about. If only I hadn’t had so much wine. There’s a psychopath a few feet away who could very possibly rape me or worse, and I can barely stand up straight.
The need to preserve my life overcomes any critical thinking I may possess. Taking less than a second to process my thoughts, I bolt out of the kitchen, sprinting for the front door. Right when I’m about to reach the handle, I run smack dab into his solid form before falling back on my ass. He doesn’t even sway from the impact.
Tears wet my face in defeat. How on earth did he beat me here?
Dark, straight hair falls over his face as he crouches down to my level. My stare lifts to the two twisted braids above his left ear when his harsh voice commands eye contact. “You incited Maelprog flames with death blood, using the Ammalok Qew to call upon me by name. What could you have possibly expected to happen?”
The words I understand have my chest heaving. “L-Leena’s spell? It worked?”
His unnerving laugh pushes me closer to the edge of my sanity while he stands, towering over me. “You clearly got enough right that I ended up here.” His synthetic smile is tainted with a sneer. “What were you attempting to do, human?”
Human? Barely comprehending his question, I scramble to my feet. Even though a voice in the back of my mind whispers he’s speaking truth, I can’t accept it. This all has to be a stress-induced nightmare. “What are you?” I ask the question so quietly, I doubt he hears me until he winks.
“It’ll be much more fun to show you.”

May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'Thapity TWISTED TALES TIED UP WITH A DERANGED BOW'

Excerpt

“I…” I didn’t even know. I couldn’t explain what I didn’t know. “Ask me about Jake in a different way.”
“There is no other way.”
“You know there is! Ask it in a different way.” I shoved up to my feet. This was the fight here.
I was sick of the killing.
I could not handle one more body, especially not someone I knew.
My chest heaved. “Ask it in a different way.”
I liked Jake. I was hurt by what he said, but he wasn’t on my list anymore.
I frowned. “What happened with Cavers?”
“None of your business!” he erupted, his hands flying in the air, but he was moving farther away from me. His back hit the wall, and he let me see him, how haunted he was, how stricken. He let it all out for me to see and read, though I wasn’t sure he knew it. “I don’t run my decisions through some pussy I like plowing.”
Okay, now I was mad.
“Take that back,” I said quietly.
He swore, low and long. Then he moved, flipping a chair into the wall. It impaled there, and the wall held it. It looked like an abstract piece of art.
“Take it back!” I clipped out, folding my arms over my chest.
He looked away.
I didn’t know what was going on here, but fuck him if he didn’t take back calling me pussy he liked to plow.
I screamed, “Take it back!”
“No!” He was across the room and in my face in the next second. I braced myself, but he didn’t touch me.
He stopped just short of it, his breath in my cheek, his eyes taking me in, scanning my face.
He was panicking.
I saw it now, lurking there.
Good! That filled me with satisfaction.
My chest started pounding.
No, that was my heart.
It was thumping in my chest, getting stronger, faster—a steady and powerful beat now. I could feel it all the way to my toes—in my fingers, my neck. His eyes lingered on my lips.
He couldn’t look away.
Stark hunger flashed in his eyes, and he raised a hand, holding it in the air.
It curved gently, as if he wanted to touch my neck, or the side of my face.
But he didn’t move. He just held it there, a few inches from my skin.
His eyes lifted to mine. “You bitch.”
My heart still pounded, trying to reach him. “You’re a murdering asshole,” I whispered back, seething.
“What?”he sneered. “You want to fuck now? Forget you put a fucking gun to your head?”
“Don’t kill Jake.”
He pressed into me, his eyes wild, on the edge of control. “Why?” His breath was hot on me. He bent down, his eyes glittering now.
Then he found his control. He rested one hand against the wall, next to my head. The other found my hip and slid up, moving under my shirt, raising it.
God. I almost moaned.
Wetness flooded me, and I started to throb.
I wanted him.
So fucking bad.
He bent and his lips grazed over mine, my cheeks, my chin. Tingles raced through me.
Jesus.
I wanted him deep inside of me. I shifted, pressing against him, and both of us groaned from the contact.
I began moving, a slow grind, and he was quiet, grinding back.
This was different from the other times.
The terms had flipped. Roles were changing. Everything was being upended between us.
