Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A darker enemies to lovers romance filled with lots of angst. If you want a great escape Hate You will give you the bad boy, angsty, intense emotional ride you need!

Zach wants absolutely nothing to do with the posh life he grew up in. He’s made his own mark on the world by owning tattoo shops across  Europe and America. While he’s away visiting one of these very shops Tabitha, a girl he went to school with, a girl from the very world he tried to leave behind, a girl he doesn’t remember, but with one look at her absolutely wants to forget, she is hired at the very shop he primarily works in and lives above. Zach’s co-workers may love her, but he plans to make her life a living hell until she quits. Game on.

Tabitha may come from a rich life, but she doesn’t like the strings that come attached with it. She takes the job at Rebel Ink after her grandmother dies needing to fill the depressing down time. It is exactly the distraction she needs to help bring her out of her funk, that is until the owner comes back from his trip. Why did Zach have to be one of the biggest jerks she went to school with? Tabitha may have been an unknown back in high school and Zach doesn’t recognize her right away, unfortunately her high priced look gives her away. He instantly dislikes her without knowing her, but she refuses to quit. The job is what finally gives her purpose. The job is what finally gives her motivation. Game on.

The line between their hate sizzles so hot it blurs between so many emotions throughout their story prepare for an angst filled ride unlike any other. Hate You is intense and dark, but also completely mutual in their hate/love feelings.

Synopsis:

I loved to hate her…

She made it so easy. She was everything I wasn’t—everything I didn’t want to be.

A reminder that from the moment I was born, I was the outcast. The rebel.

I went against everything that was expected of me and created a life on my terms. I built my own empire, carved out my own destiny.

Then she shows up at my tattoo studio, representing everything I tried to escape. She expects to just fit in… like she ever could.

Tabitha Anderson.

The posh girl trying to prove everyone wrong… that she can be something else—someone else. She hates me because she knows I’m right.

Or so I think. Turns out this isn’t the first time we’ve met, and our hate has history. We have history.

I might not have remembered, but I damn sure won’t forget now. Won’t forget how her smile is always directed at everyone but me.

If everything changes and she proves she does fit in, will it still be hate I’m feeling or something else entirely?

And if I’m wrong, then she’s right where she belongs… with me.

Review – The Ninth Inning by J. Sterling

The Ninth Inning; The Boys of Baseball #1 
(A standalone within a series)

by: J. Sterling

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A second chance, sports romance that had me feeling a ton of empathy for the heroine.

Christina and Cole have been in a yo-yo type of relationship since Freshman year of college. A relationship where Cole actually held the yo-yo and Christina was the string that he tugged back and forth at his command.

For Cole, baseball was always his first and foremost concentration, which Christina did respect and understand, but Cole also put Christina in the bootycall category even when he knew deep down she was something more than just the other random hookups he had while attending Fullton. In his mind, he associated a girlfriend with fulltime work, so if he kept Christina at arms length then he wouldn’t feel pressured and he would be able to focus on baseball. Instead he actually found his senior year game less than satisfactory and his mind on her all the time, perhaps his plan wasn’t working like it should.

Christina had finally had enough of Cole playing with her months before Senior year. His yo-yo game with her heart was finally enough. However, when he asks for another chance, this time a real chance and not just a late night hookup, she has to think if her heart can take it. Can she forgive him? They already have years of actual history together, but is it enough to repair the damage to her self esteem?

I was able to empathize with Christina so easily in this story. Many years ago I dated someone who kept me in a yo-yo cycle and it played havoc on my emotions and bruised my self esteem hard. I know what it’s like to jump into something you want to believe in so hard only to get damaged over and over again. That self destructive pattern is so easy to follow, but that is why fiction is so much better than real life.

That being said, The Ninth Inning will take you on an emotional journey. One that I definitely identified with.

Synopsis:

Cole Anders is in his last season at Fullton State. If he doesn’t get drafted this year, he’ll be forced to hang up his cleats for good. It’s not something he’s ready to do.

To prove he’s serious about his final season, he’s given up girls. No more casual hookups, dates or one-night stands. But there’s one girl who has always refused to give up on him. One girl who has been there since the start of Freshman year. One girl he stupidly assumed would always be waiting for him when he got off the field, no matter how long it took.

Christina’s had enough of Cole pushing her aside for baseball. She’s grown tired of waiting for him to see what she’s known since they were freshmen… that they are good together. She’s finally moved on- for good this time.

Cole has other ideas, but she refuses to cave. It’s not her problem if he wants her now. Too little too late.

There comes a point in your life when you have to stop the incessant merry-go-round and just get off the ride, right? Try telling that to Cole.

Title: Dark Prince

Author: Michelle Hercules

COVER DESIGN: Michelle Hercules

PHOTOGRAPHER: Michelle Lancaster (@lanefotograf)

MODEL: Chase Mattson

About Dark Prince:

There are only two ways a human can cross the gates of Bloodstone Institute: as a familiar to one of the blueblood vampires who attend the elite school or as a snack.

I’m neither, but I have to get in at all costs. My brother made a big mistake, and now I have to fix it by stealing from the most powerful and cruel vampire to ever come to Bloodstone, Lucca Della Morte. If that wasn’t almost suicidal, I need to get it done before the spell concealing my human nature wears off.

But I forget that I’m only pretending to be a vampire. I’m still human and susceptible to Lucca’s dangerous allure. His darkness calls to my soul. His savagery makes my blood sing. I’m falling for the dark prince, craving him in a visceral way that’s frightening and exciting at the same time.

If he discovers my secret, he’ll destroy me. And yet, I can’t help wanting to get closer. I never thought I had a death wish until I met him.

Review – Rebellion by Siobhan Davis

50663955. sy475

Rebellion; The Sainthood  – Boys of Lowell High #2
(#2 within a series)

by: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

TEN stars…ALL the stars!!!
The second installment of The Sainthood is so amazingly good, it was really hard to pick a point on where to begin gushing over Siobhan’s brilliance of this series.

A rebellion is coming and every member of the Sainthood has a part to play and they each have their reason to rebel.

Harlow, Saint, Galan, Theo, and Caz all get a POV in Rebellion, a weaving insight of past information into present current events. Is what Harlow learns about each member enough to build trust again? She’s been betrayed, not only by Galan, but crews never work alone so she’s leary of everyone.

Harlow once again proves to be a strong female lead that knows what she wants, is not easily swayed, and is a force to be reckoned with. She is one of my favorite female leads because of her “take no prisoners” way of thinking.

Because we get insight into the four boys of the Sainthood and we get more of their backstories, you’ll be so touched as their stories are heartbreaking. It is a wonder they have a lick of compassion as how most of them have had horrible parents, but I think because they have each other they bonded together as brothers and made their own family. You begin to see how each member brings something to the group and how they all fit together, needing Harlow to ground them.

Rebellion is full of passionate, dirty, delicious moments. Tons of emotion and lots of action. Siobhan brought her “A” game for this series and it isn’t finished yet.

Synopsis:

Everything changed the night he betrayed me, and now, the game has entered a new level.

Galen did me a favor, reminding me the only person I can count on is myself, and I’m more determined than ever to avenge my father’s death and avoid the destiny Sinner has mapped out for me.

Saint is used to calling the shots, but there are new rules, my rules, and if he wants me in his life, and in his bed, he’ll toe the line. They all will, because I can’t pull this off alone, and they owe me.

Sinner thinks he’s in control, but forcing me into initiation plays right into my hands. War has come to Lowell as rival gangs battle The Sainthood for ultimate power, and I enjoy rebelling from the inside, placing more obstacles in Sinner’s path while I exact my revenge.

But I’m not some innocent thirteen-year-old anymore—I have blood on my hands and lethal enemies on my tail.

I’m playing a dangerous game, especially where my heart is concerned, but there’s no turning back. I haven’t come this far to walk away empty-handed, and the more secrets we uncover, the more we realize how far-reaching the betrayal and corruption extend, and there’s no choice anymore.

The Sainthood must be taken down, and we’re the only ones who can do it.

Read the First Chapter Today!

Havoc. That’s the name of this club. Appropriate. It’s dark, loud, and brimming with humans more than ready to satiate my hunger. It took me a while to get used to the noise. Night entertainment sure as shit has changed since the last time I was awake.

My latest snack is passed out on the VIP couch, utterly spent. Feeding and fucking go hand in hand, but unlike the human currently snoring next to me, I’m far from satisfied. My strength has returned, and thanks to all the blood I’ve drunk already, I’m almost caught up on what I missed in the past ninety-five years. Blood remembers.

Opposite me, Saxon is busy getting it on with some random girl. Ronan and Manu have disappeared to I-don’t-know-where. So much for my reawakening party. That’s my inner circle in a nutshell—a bunch of assholes. Not that I’m any better.

I catch the attention of the nearest bouncer, signaling him to get rid of the passed out human. I’m ready for the next one.

Not a minute later, I find my new target. A pretty little thing in black leather is walking over, carrying one single shot on her tray. Slender yet curvy in all the right places, blonde hair cascading down her back, and full lips begging to be tasted, she’s exactly what I need.

Immediately, my fangs descend, and my cock hardens. I watch her approach, not hiding the hunger that’s surely shining in my eyes now. When she stops in front of me, I can hear how fast her heart is beating; I can smell her fear.

Interesting.

Most humans who come to these places aren’t afraid of us. They know exactly what we want, and they give it willingly in the hopes of being turned. Little do they know we no longer have that power.

“What’s your name, sugar?” I ask, not hiding the craving in my voice.

“Re-Rebecca.” She clutches the tray harder while tremors run through her body.

A lie. That’s not her name. I’m not surprised she wasn’t truthful. She’s not afraid; she’s gripped by terror, which makes her even more alluring to me. I’m a predator after all.

Not taking my eyes off her face, I run my fingers up her naked legs. “What do you have for me, Rebecca?”

She doesn’t answer for a couple of beats. In fact, she’s not even breathing. I suspect she might bolt out of here at any second.

“A special shot. On the house,” she finally replies.

My lips curl into a grin. I was wondering when Derek Blackwater, the owner of Havoc, would send me a welcome gift. He was the last human to be turned into a vampire, and thus, he’s almost as old as I. But that’s as far my knowledge of his dark past goes. The guy is a mystery.

“Is that so?” My hand disappears underneath her skirt, and when I squeeze her ass, she gasps.

“Yes,” she breathes out.

My pulse skyrockets. Damn it. It’s normal to be thirstier soon after an awakening, but my reaction to this human is stronger than I anticipated.

With shaking hands, she hands over the shot glass. I don’t know what kind of drink this is, but I’m past the point of caring. I throw my head back and drink it in one single gulp. Immediately, my head becomes fuzzy.

With a frown, I stare at the empty glass, seeing double. “What the hell?”

I sense someone yank on my necklace, a piece of jewelry I never take off. The fucking human is trying to steal from me. My movements are sluggish now, which means she laced my drink with vampire’s bane.

Motherfucker.

The necklace chain snaps at the same time that I manage to get over the poison’s effect. I’m fully recharged, thanks to my ninety-five-year nap, and thus, I’m less susceptible to vampire’s bane’s effects. The thief is about to take off, but I grab her wrist, digging my nails into her soft skin, drawing blood. A single whiff of her scent changes everything. My vision turns crimson, my eyes zero in on her neck, and my ears only hear the sound of her blood pumping in her veins.

The desire to sink my fangs into her soft skin is no longer about retribution. This is pure and raw bloodlust.

I jump from the couch, trapping the girl between my arms. She struggles, she screams, but no one will come to her aid.

Sudden pain shoots up the back of my head, clearing my vision for a second. The human is pulled from me by Saxon, and then Manu is blocking my way.

“What the hell, Lucca! I leave you alone for a moment, and that’s what you do?” Her golden eyes are glowing in the dark, showing how angry she’s with me.

“She poisoned me with vampire’s bane,” I grit out, trying to control the feral instinct that’s demanding I rip the human’s throat to shreds.

“Let me go!” She fights Saxon’s hold.

“Take it easy, sweet cheeks. You’re not going anywhere.”

I don’t dare to move. I’m not over the bloodlust yet. I haven’t succumbed to it since the worst evening of my life centuries ago. Why now?

“What’s this?” Saxon pulls an object from the girl’s grasp.

“My necklace,” I say. “Bitch came here to steal from me.”

Saxon lobs it in my direction, and then Manu whirls around, displaying her talon-like nails. Fuck. Now she wants a piece of the human too.

No. She’s mine.

“Who sent you here?” my sister asks the girl.

The thief doesn’t have a chance to reply. Ronan comes running, his face twisted in the deepest frown and his entire body exuding anger. He spares a fleeting glance at the puny human in Saxon’s grasp and then turns to me.

“We’ve got company,” he says. “Tatiana’s sycophants are here.”

Damn everything to hell. They had to show up now. I could simply kill the human with a single blow and be done with retaliation. But my body immediately rejects that idea. I can’t do it.

With regret, I turn to Saxon. “Forget her.”

His eyebrows furrow while he watches me as if I’d lost my mind. I’m not sure I haven’t. Releasing someone who poisoned me and tried to steal from me is not my MO, but my revenge will have to wait. I have an older debt to settle and a message to send.
