FOR YOUR EYES ONLY
By Tia Louise

Can you love what you can’t touch?

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

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

New Release – No Time To Lie by Lexi Blake

Their love may be endgame.

No Time to Lie, an all-new action-packed, second chance romance in the Masters and Mercenaries: Reloaded Series from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake is now available!

A grandmaster of lies and deception

Drake Radcliffe has spent half his life in the shadows. Recruited by the CIA when he was barely out of high school, Drake doesn’t know how to have a normal life. While most people his age were playing sports or video games, he was playing spy games with the world’s most dangerous adversaries. It has been a life filled with thrills and adrenaline, but it’s also been lonely. All that might change when a mistake from Drake’s past rears its ugly head and he’s forced to face the only woman he ever loved—the one he’d vowed to stay away from.

A beacon of love and compassion

Taylor Cline committed the cardinal sin in her world—she fell for another operative. Drake was everything she wanted in a man, until he broke her heart. She had one unforgettable night with him and then he never looked back. Her future threatened and family in ruins, she shut down and moved on, hoping to never see him again. Just as she is beginning to put it all behind her, a critical assignment puts her under his authority and right back in his arms.

A deadly mission that brings them together

From the wilds of Wyoming to the glittering cities of Europe, Drake and Taylor must race against time to uncover the truth and expose an evil organization. The stakes couldn’t be higher. If they fail, the world could crumble. If they succeed, they could finally have everything their hearts desire.

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

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

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

Excerpt

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

Review – Bones by Shantel Tessier

44415685. sy475

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

Publication Date: August 5, 2022

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

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

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

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

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

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

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

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

When a friend comes to me for help because someone he loves is in danger, I’m happy to do so. After all, my friends are few, and they are my family.

Once I have her, I do what I have to in order to protect her. She thinks she’s in hell, but this is child’s play compared to what she would have faced.

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

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

BONES is the fifth book in The Dark Kingdom Series and can be read as a standalone. Due to mature content and themes this book is recommended for readers aged eighteen and over. This novel may contain triggers.

Bloody Cruel Psycho, an explosive dark college romance in The Bloody Duet from USA Today bestselling author Lucy Smoke, is available now!

A life for a life … will kill the both of us in the end.

Clover

I know nothing of the Sickness at Eastpoint University. I know only the backroads that slip past the southern beaches and the gators that make their way onto the swamps shores. Until him. Until the killer known as Braxton Smalls finds his way into my stilted trailer on the coast of Port Charlotte.

He came looking for Ace, but he found me instead…

Braxton

Excerpt

“You want to bend me and break me, Braxton Smalls.”

“And you’re going to let me,” he shoots back. “All for him.” He spits out the last word like it’s a curse.

I shake my head. “To an extent, Brax,” I warn him. “You think you have me cornered because I agreed to fuck you in return for you not tearing ass after Ace, but understand this much.” I lean up on my elbows and stare back at him. He grits his teeth as his hands ball into fists. “I’m the swamp rat you picked up. I have not been catered to my whole life like the women you were raised around. I am my own person and when someone pushes too far, I let them know. You have rights over my body, Brax, but that’s as far as it goes.”

Braxton’s arms drop to his sides and before I know it, his hands are around my waist as he rips the towel away from my body and turns, shoving me up against the outside glass of the shower. “You think your body is all you’re giving me, Clover?”

I swallow hard. “Yes.” I turn the small lie into a silent prayer.

His wide mouth curves into a vicious smile. “Then you have nothing to fear.”

New Release – Wicked and Forever by Shayla Black

 

 

When the woman he loves is taken, Forest “Trees” Scott abandons a mission to save her from the enemy. Fearing the worst, he moves heaven and earth to find her—until he realizes Laila Torres left him of her own free will for the man who used her for six years. He’s stunned and wrecked. She played him—and he fell for it. One thing he’s not doing? Giving up. He’ll find her and he’ll make her pay…in his bed.

Laila is devastated by her tormentor’s return, but when he threatens the bodyguard she’s so foolishly fallen for, she risks everything—including her life—to protect Trees. As a mere pawn in a deadly game played by factions of a cartel, she and Trees have no future unless she can somehow destroy them. But she doesn’t count on Trees hunting her down, stripping her soul bare, and insisting in the sexiest way possible that she belongs to him and always will.

But danger awaits around every corner, and secrets abound. As Trees and Laila fight for their future, their enemies close in. Will they let go of their hurts and trust in their love before it’s too late?

Review – Vengeance of a Mafia Queen by Siobhan Davis

60728629. sy475

Vengeance of a Mafia Queen
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: May 31, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Dark/Mafia/Suspense Romance

Author: Siobhan Davis

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Vengeance of a Mafia Queen starts off super steamy, then instantly turns super dark and the story never stops on this rollercoaster spectrum. It’s a mind blowing ride that hits all the emotions!

Catarina and Massimo are super angsty, hot, witty, full of tension and steam. This entire story is fast paced from beginning to end and I adored Massimo with his easy-go-lucky personality which fit to perfectly to Catarina’s high strung one. They balanced each other out while never breaking that ever growing chemistry.

Catarina is focused, smart, sharp, and always five steps ahead of what she wants to achieve. That is until Massimo steps into her life. He throws her off like no one has in her entire life. She is juggling a lot of balls and she can’t allow something like  – feelings – to mess up her ultimate goal.

From the beginning, Massimo is all in and Catarina is the woman he wants. Catarina just isn’t on same page with wanting him back. Their relationship is kind of adorable because of this dynamic where he’s totally obsessed with her and she’s stoic and fighting him at every turn. It’s really easy to fall in love with Massimo – who knew a made man could be so sweetly-likeable?

While there are some dark topics, after all this is a dark, mafia book, it’s all relevant to the main theme of the story. What I love is that Catarina takes no prisoners and doesn’t back down just because she’s a woman working in a very male dominated world. She doesn’t apologize for her methods, nor does she allow men to pick up slack because she’s female. I loved her strong character.

On the flip side, I adored Massimo and his willingness to concede to Catarina, knowing how strong she is, but also to take control when she clearly needed the down time. He could read her better than she could read herself sometimes. He’s totally obsessed with her take-charge personality, which is perfect so I’ll say it again, they are a really great match.

Vengeance of a Mafia Queen is delicious on every level. It takes place in the Mazzone mafia world and while reading those books would enhance this books reading experience, it’s not necessary to read them prior to this book as it can be read as a complete standalone.

Synopsis:
Falling for the enemy was never part of my plan…

Losing my innocence at thirteen, in the most brutal way, changed me. My kidnapper stole my childhood and tried to break me. The knowledge my father orchestrated the entire situation hardened my heart, and instead of grieving his death, I celebrated it.

One down. Many more to go.

My burning need for revenge has only grown over the years, keeping me focused on my goals and enabling my rise to power.

Made men are weak. A pretty face and the promise of a good time easily distracts them.

Now, I’m in charge.

Men bow before me.

Except for him—the brother of my abductor. Massimo fights me every step of the way, but I’m not about to let the explosive chemistry between us deter me from my chosen path. His family is my enemy. He is my enemy, even if he doesn’t know it yet.

I won’t stop until all those who wronged me are punished.

By the time they realize I’m coming, it will be too late.

They tried to take everything from me.

But where they failed, I will succeed.

Unless he becomes my weakness.

Review – Delighted by Lexi Blake

59514948. sy475

Delighted; Masters and Mercenaries #24.5, Sanctum Nights #13
(A novella within a series)

Publication Date: June 7, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Novella/Single mom/Suspense Romance

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Big, beautiful, kind-hearted Boomer. I’ve been looking forward to his story and I loved every moment of it, I only wish it could have been longer.

Boomer has been a secondary character for a long time and I’ve loved every time he’s shown up on the page. So of course I’ve been eagerly anticipating his own story. Boomer is one of the biggest guys on the team, but aside from his physical stature, he’s got one of the biggest hearts and sweetest personalities you will run across. He’s a bleeding heart when it comes to helping someone in need, seriously…it is impossible to not like this guy, unless you are on some starvation diet then his large appetite may offend you, but aside from that, he’s loyal, kind, and an animal lover to boot. The same question we all ask- how is this man still single- is the same one Daphne asks when she meets him, and that answer requires Boomer to receive lots of big hugs.

Daphne is a widow and a single mother to a twelve year daughter with a genius level IQ. It’s Lou that befriends Boomer first and she’s an amazing girl who fits right in with all the MT youth. It’s that feeling of when you find your tribe, you instantly click. Daphne also feels right at home with the MT women and she hasn’t had that in a long time, but falling for someone again is scary especially when she’s still dealing with her in-laws from her first marriage.

This novella is lower suspense than some of the other books within the Masters and Mercenaries series, but for readers of this series it is filled with morsels of what’s happened in the last book and what’s to come up in the next. I know I’m eager with anticipation for not only the next book, but also for the next generation. Having Lou in this book gave Lexi a chance to really flush out the youth and what their potential will be, not that we didn’t already know about some of them, like Ian’s girls, but they are really taking shape.

Synopsis:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lexi Blake comes a new story in her Masters and Mercenaries series…

Brian “Boomer” Ward believes in sheltering strays. After all, the men and women of McKay-Taggart made him family when he had none. So when the kid next door needs help one night, he thinks nothing of protecting her until her mom gets home. But when he meets Daphne Carlton, the thoughts hit him hard. She’s stunning and hardworking and obviously in need of someone to put her first. It doesn’t hurt that she’s as sweet as the cupcakes she bakes.

Daphne Carlton’s life revolves around two things—her kid and her business. Daphne’s Delights is her dream—to take the recipes of her childhood and share them with the world. Her daughter, Lula, is the best kid she could have hoped for. Lula’s got a genius-level intelligence and a heart of gold. But she also has two grandparents who control her access to private school and the fortune her father left behind. They’re impossible to please, and Daphne worries that one wrong move on her part could cost her daughter the life she deserves.

As Daphne and Boomer find themselves getting closer, outside forces put pressure on the new couple. But if they make it through the storm, love will just be the icing on the cake because family is the real prize.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Review – Last Resort by Amelia Wilde

59634116. sy475

Last Resort; The Collector #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: March 22, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Suspense/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The final book in the Collector trilogy and this love story covers a lot of ground, but comes with a HEA.

Daphne and Emerson LeBlanc have been a fascinating love story. The way Amelia writes is always a full course meal for the reading palate, but on top of that the way she tackled mental health and abuse in this story was done with beauty and love.

Both Daphne and Emerson suffered in the households they grew up in, where they should have been able to trust their fathers, it wasn’t the case. It is probably a big reason why their souls recognized the same darkness in each other. Their love grew from their brokenness and their ability to comfort one another.

There are large chunks of this book where they spend time without each other, but they are with their respective families. It’s not necessarily a bad thing as they each need time to gain that family support and it also gives us more insight into other characters for future storylines.

Daphne is Leo’s baby sister and the one he spent a lot of time protecting throughout her life, he isn’t just going to let her go easily, especially to a man he believes kidnapped her. I honestly loved having Leo as the overly protective family member in her life. Leo Morelli has been pegged as the antivillain, but he’s one of my favorite characters, especially when he goes all alpha over his family members.

On Emerson’s side of the family I like both of his brothers, but Sin just a bit more. I can’t wait to find out what his story will be, but until then….back to the Morelli world.

Synopsis:

Emerson LeBlanc lost more than an acquisition. He lost the woman he loves.

There’s no redemption for a man with his past. No future for a relationship built on stalking and kidnapping. At least that’s what he believes. When he meets Daphne again, she’s not a piece of art. She’s a woman determined to paint a new path. For herself. For him. Except the ocean holds more than shadows. It holds danger that could ruin them both.

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

He’s intense, he’s fearless, and he’ll stop at nothing to save her.

My job is to protect the innocent, but Blake van Hamilton has never been innocent.

With killer curves, silky brown hair, and silvery-blue eyes, she’s been an inconvenient object of my lust since we were teens.

Now I’ve been hired to guard her against a gang of criminals who want her money, and maybe even her life.

Still, I’m the last person she wants helping her.

Blake van Hamilton hates me, but it won’t stop me from doing my job.

Hutch Winston may be sexy as hell, but I won’t fall for his white knight, alpha-protector act.

Not since he used it to ruin my life at sixteen.

But when my best friend turns up dead and my uncle goes missing, Hutch is my only option.

Moving into his family estate is the real test.

It gets worse when I accidentally see him naked in the shower, moaning my name.

I have to keep my head and my heart in line—not to mention my body.

Every part of me wants him in every possible way.

I may be fearless, but how I feel about him scares me most of all.

(FEARLESS is a stand-alone, enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense novel. It contains an insanely hot alpha protector and the curvy, feisty socialite he’s hired to protect. A forced proximity angle sets it all ablaze. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Review – Wicked As Seduction by Shayla Black

57431803. sy475

Wicked as Seduction; Trees and Laila #1, Wicked and Devoted #5
(#1within a duet, #5 within a series)

Publication Date: March 15, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/Security/Suspense/opposites attract Romance

Author: Shayla Black

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

More puzzle pieces fit together in this intricate and seductive storyline. I’m hooked, I’m addicted, and I’m totally whipped into submission by Shayla Black, please keep giving me more of this EM Security team.

From book one we’ve been given bits and pieces of this continual storyline along with each of the players in this Wicked and Devoted world. Trees and Laila have been wrapped up in the overall plot from the very beginning and we finally get their intimate story and how each of their roles in the plot plays out.

I love how Shayla has written the overall story arc for this entire series. Each duet in this world winds around the overall plot and yet, intersects with each other at different time lines. So while they also have their own individual stories that play out, they also line up according to past timelines, making me remember, oh yeah, that already happened but to another character and now we have a different POV. I love those moments!

Laila was the girl One-Mile helped rescue when he was held in captivity. She’s had a rough life to put it mildly. What she’s suffered at the hands of her tormentors is something none of us could even dream of, but Laila’s spirit, pride, and gumption is also something to be admired. Her captors never broke her of her inner fire. While her pride can sometimes be a bit much, it is also commendable in the eyes of those around her, especially a man like Trees.

Trees is attracted to Laila pretty much upon sight. While he does have a type, small and petite, what he comes to appreciate more is her fiery spirit and love she has for her family too. Trees is the tech guru for EM Security and while he’s not typically a bodyguard, it’s also not completely out of his wheelhouse either. Guarding Laila is probably the hardest job he’s ever had, and hard is the optimal word. He can’t seem to control his body’s reaction around her, which is inconvenient at best. He knows what she’s been through and with his shere size alone he doesn’t want to scare her. Laila’s feistiness and determination to save her family may just kill him if the cartel doesn’t do it first.

I loved reading this story about a woman who has suffered so much, but finally learns to feel comfortable in a place where she could learn to trust in someone again. It isn’t easy when you’ve lost all hope in humanity, but Trees is the perfect man to help restore that kind of faith. His gooey center is also filled with a ton of patience and gentle understanding that not a lot of people have. He’s a rare gem of a man and I loved everything about him.

I loved everything about this first book of the duet. It’s action filled, totally non-stop from start to finish, and filled with a ton of chemistry, which was also uniquely amazing considering where Laila came from. Shayla did a fantastic job of handling her past and moving forward with her future. I’m excited to finish their story and see what’s next.

Synopsis:
He’ll protect her…even if he has to take her captive to save her.

Tech wiz and former elite soldier Forest “Trees” Scott had one mission: Rescue the woman being hunted by a vicious cartel and get her to safety. It should have been simple…but the minute he sees the wary beauty with haunted eyes, his desire for her complicates everything. So does her stubborn refusal to trust him. When Trees is forced to abduct her, she vows to hate him—even as he finds himself falling in love…

For six years, Laila Torres has known nothing but brutality at the hands of men, so when the massive stranger with the forbidding mien kidnaps her, she’s frightened—and furious. But the giant’s protective care shocks her. With every word, he proves steadfast. With every forbidden touch, he awakens the woman in her. Soon, she’s facing the terrifying realization that he’s also dangerously close to capturing her heart.

But their ruthless enemies are closing in, threatening everything Laila holds dear. When she’s forced to make an unthinkable sacrifice, will she trust Trees and their love to save her?

New Release – FEARLESS by Tia Louise!

FEARLESS by Tia Louise is now live!


He’s intense, he’s fearless, and he’ll stop at nothing to save her.

My job is to protect the innocent, but Blake van Hamilton has never been innocent.

With killer curves, silky brown hair, and silvery-blue eyes, she’s been an inconvenient object of my lust since we were teens.

Now I’ve been hired to guard her against a gang of criminals who want her money, and maybe even her life.

Still, I’m the last person she wants helping her.

Blake van Hamilton hates me, but it won’t stop me from doing my job.

Hutch Winston may be sexy as hell, but I won’t fall for his white knight, alpha-protector act.

Not since he used it to ruin my life at sixteen.

But when my best friend turns up dead and my uncle goes missing, Hutch is my only option.

Moving into his family estate is the real test.

It gets worse when I accidentally see him naked in the shower, moaning my name.

I have to keep my head and my heart in line—not to mention my body.

Every part of me wants him in every possible way.

I may be fearless, but how I feel about him scares me most of all.

(FEARLESS is a stand-alone, enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense novel. It contains an insanely hot alpha protector and the curvy, feisty socialite he’s hired to protect. A forced proximity angle sets it all ablaze. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

EXCERPT
 
“And how about my beautiful wife?” Nick turned to me, expression shifting.
 
Less loving. More…dangerous.
 
“Would you like to see what I brought back for you?” His lips curved up in the corner, eyes flaming with something sinister and dark. But it was gone in a heartbeat, making me question my sanity, as always seemed to be the case.
 
I nodded subtly.
 
He stepped toward me, gripping my hip in a possessive hold. I sucked in a shaky breath at the contact. He leaned closer, eyes darkening.
 
“How do you ask?”
 
My pulse kicked up. Most other couples would think this a fun game. A play on dominant versus submissive. But nothing about the way Nick held me felt playful. It felt…threatening.
 
“Please, Nick,” I said, partly begging for him to let me go. Partly begging for whatever it was he brought me, even though a voice in my head told me I shouldn’t want anything to do with it.
 
Pushing down the trepidation swimming in my stomach, I swallowed hard, brightening my expression as I forced out a charming smile.
 
“Can I please see what you’ve brought me? You always spoil us.”
 
He crushed his lips to mine. I moaned, playing the part of his affectionate, loving wife, even though everything about this felt…wrong.
 
But I had no proof. He’d never hit me. Never hurt me. In fact, he did everything to give me my dreams at the expense of his own.
 
“Because you’re my Hera,” he murmured against my lips. “My goddess. My queen. My immortal beloved.” He trailed kisses along my jawline before pressing his mouth back to mine.
 
When he finally pulled away, much to my relief, he kept his eyes trained on mine. Reaching into the inside pocket of his tweed jacket, he removed a long, gold chain, a tulip dangling from the end, the bulb a pear-shaped opal. The gold appeared tarnished and worn. This definitely wasn’t something he’d found at the corner jewelry store.
 
“When I saw this, I knew there was only one neck on this planet it would look good on.” He stepped behind me, brushing my long, blonde waves off my shoulders.
 
I remained frozen as he secured the piece. It was delicate, weighing mere ounces. But it felt so heavy around my neck, suffocating and cutting off my air.
 
I had no reason to think this was anything but a generous gift from a doting husband.
 
But, somehow, I knew there was more to it.
 
That he simply didn’t walk into an antique store and purchase this.
 
That there was something incredibly malevolent about how he came to be the owner of this necklace.
 
I wanted it off me. Wanted nothing to do with it.
 
But I didn’t have a choice.
 
With Nick, I never had a choice.

About Obtaining Hope

The time has come to end this.

No longer will I hide away locked in my own sorrow. Instead, I will channel that pain into righteous fury. Once again I’m reconnected with my mates, and with new allies who have been dealt the same ruthless hand as me— finally have the army I need.

The call has been sent out for those who want their pound of flesh to come together.

My enemy isn’t going down without a fight. Every move we make, they follow it up with one of their own. What they don’t know is that with each attack, I gain the knowledge I need, that will aid me in taking them down. We know where they are hiding, and we know the cruel things they’re still doing to those they claim to protect. That just fuels my thirst for vengeance.

This battle will end in one of two ways—their death or ours—and I don’t plan on dying anytime soon.

Book 4 out of 4

This is a medium burn reverse harem where the leading character will not have to choose between her men. It is an 18+ book that has strong language, sexual situations, along with darker material such as torture, violence, and some matters pertaining to the fragility of life.

Review – Controlled Burn by Marie James

58432168. sy475

Controlled Burn; Blackbridge Security #8 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: February 3, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Single Parent/Close Proximity/Contemporary/Suspense Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Super cute, close proximity, single mom romance. Every few books Marie James writes a story that contains adorable children and this happens to be one of them. Actually this book contains three super cute kids and it only enhanced the story making it that much better. I loved the kids and I loved the Irish man and I just loved this book!

Kendall is a single mom, trying her best to raise her three small kids on her own, but after losing her home, she had to move in with her brother. When the neighbor complained about the noise, they were suddenly served with their second eviction notice and Kendall didn’t know what to do. They didn’t have any family left and she was soon going to be homeless. She thought about apologizing to the neighbor, but since they were already being evicted, that thought went right out the door, so instead Kendall went with giving him a piece of her mind…especially since he’d been flirting with her for weeks.

Finnegan seriously had no idea that the woman he’d been flirting with in the apartment building gym was the same woman who lived on his floor and was responsible for all the recent noise. He might have reconsidered making the complaint, or reconsidered flirting, he wasn’t exactly sure, but either way he felt bad. He felt so bad that he made an offer for her to move in with him since she had nowhere else to go. The fact that she came with baggage….um….He was only half serious about the offer, so he shouldn’t have been surprised when she took him up on it. He really liked her, her kids…um….how long were they staying again?

This story is all kinds of adorable, with a bit of intrigue mixed in. After all this is a Blackbridge Security novel. Of course there are character favorites who make appearances, my personal favorites are Wren and Whitney who add some extra spice, and extra, extra spice…Puff Daddy gets a girlfriend. It’s hilarious.

While Finn hangs out with some of the single guys (there don’t seem like there are too many of those left) there are a few hints of what’s to come and there are brief catch ups for fans of past characters. I love both of these scenarios sooooo much and Marie James did the perfect amount of each while keeping the plot moving right along.

Kendall’s kiddos had the perfect blend of sassy and cuteness without being terrors or taking away from the time that Finn and Kendall needed to get to know one another. Could we be seeing more Blackbridge children in the future? If Wren has his way…yes. LOL!

Synopsis:

As the mechanic for Blackbridge Security, when I make a mistake things don’t work properly.
Correcting that mistake is the only way to get things operational.
I meet issues in my personal life with the same mindset.
How was I to know the woman I’ve been flirting with at the gym is the same woman I called a noise complaint on?
I got her kicked out of her condo.
My first response: Move in with me.
When she confessed to having three kids, it was too late to back down.
I thought keeping my hands off of her was going to be a problem, but the tiny terrors she brought along with her are extremely effective at solving that problem for me.

Excerpt

“I’ll see you later, S.”

I nod. “Yeah, sure.”

The second she’s out the door, Kage is already heading toward me. “What the fuck was that, S?”

It takes everything in my power to hold back my smile, amused with how possessive he is. “I don’t know. She’s determined to become my friend.”

“And you’re okay with that?”

I shrug half-heartedly. “She’s…tolerable. And besides, it’s not like I can go out and find new friends, being dead and all.”

He stares back at me before shaking his head. “No. Nope. I don’t like it.”

Giggling, I stand up and walk toward him, dipping my fingers into his pockets. “I can’t spend the rest of my life with just you and Beni.”

He cocks a single brow at me. “Who the fuck said Beni is invited?”

“Kage,” I laugh. “I need other friends.”

“Why?”

Arching up on my tippy-toes, I press a kiss over his heart. “Because they keep me from wanting to kill you in your sleep.”

His hands land on my arms, and he moves me away from him so he can look down at me. “How many times have you considered doing that exactly?”

“Four…”

“Oh,” he says, relieved.

“…teen.”

Sputtering on air, his jaw drops. “Fourteen?”

I tilt my head side to side. “Give or take a few.”

“Saxon!” he groans, his amusement slipping through.

“What?” I ask innocently. “You’re a little insufferable sometimes.”

The corners of his mouth raise as he stares down at me. “Mm-hm. Great. I’m sleeping in the panic room from now on.”

A laugh bubbles out of me as I press my lips to his. “That’s probably smart.”
