There are exactly three people in this whole world who know my secrets, my vulnerabilities, my pain. But then Jet Collins walks into my life and turns everything upside down.

Suddenly, I find myself keeping things from those closest to me. Even more shockingly, I’m sharing those very same secrets with someone I hardly know.

Jet’s charming and confident and everyone at school immediately wants to be his friend, but I’m the one person he can’t seem to stay away from. It’s irritating that I actually want to confide in him.

Yet every time I let myself get a little closer, he pulls away.

Boy trouble is the last thing I need. With a dangerous cult in town, my friends and I have already been in serious danger too many times to count, and things seem to be escalating again.

As the threat of BestLyf looms closer and my friends and I find ourselves in danger yet again, I can’t help wondering if Jet is dangerous too. Or is he just dangerous to my heart?

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A fascinating book the deeper it went and holy moly was it hot!!

I loved the premise of the plot, superhumans created by an evil mad scientist, but I’m going to admit, the plot was also lot of fast paced and then wait. So it was like driving through town and hitting lots of red stoplights; a whole lot of frustrating, but I still wanted to get to the final destination, if that makes sense.

Nova is the daughter of the mad scientist, which for me made part of this book intriguing. The other part is she gets roped into stopping her father by Jonas, Nico, Dimitri, Louis, and Isaac. These are men who we come to find out are just like her. They too have been experimented on, abused, and transformed into these superhuman beings, and they too want vengeance over what was done to them. Exciting right?!

While they track down clues to stopping the mad man, it’s through their shared trauma and instant chemistry that brings the heat and honestly not a lot of drama, because these guys are already bonded brothers through what they’ve been through. If there was anything that helped with the stop light waiting it was the firecracker intense heat!!

Nova was a great female lead, not only for her strong personality, but for how she handled each of the guys. After a lifetime of practically being isolated, she was quickly able to to figure out how to work with five strong men, physically and emotionally. Nova was fascinating to read, not discrediting the guys at all, but there was just a lack of background information on each one of them which made getting to know them a bit harder, aside from Jonas who instantly captured my heart for his sarcastic and snarky personality, it just took basically the rest of the book before I could even distinguish the rest of the guys. I hope there is more insight in the next part of this duet because I am still very captivated by this story and want to know how it all plays out.

Review – The Dom Who Came in from the Cold by Lexi Blake

The Dom Who Came in from the Cold; Masters and Mercenaries Reloaded #5
(Reloaded #5 & M&M #26 within a series)

Publication Date: February 21, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/BDSM light/Intrigue Romance

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Oh my heart!! The Dom Who Came in from the Cold was better than I expected and I was already expecting it to be amazing!!

It’s sometimes hard to say that you can jump into this series at any point because the plot has been rolling for multiple books, but in this instance I would say if this was the first Lexi Blake you stumbled across, number 1; welcome to the lifelong club of fans, and secondly; the love story between Kyle and MaeBe begins at their actual beginning, which also happens to be where the rolling plot for the villain jumpstarts as well. My heart leapt for joy when I discovered this treat. Thank you Lexi for giving us this amazing ride!

This is the fifth book in the Reloaded part of the Masters and Mercenaries series and with each book the tension between Kyle and MaeBe has only grown thicker and thicker. Right off everyone sensed the chemistry between the two of them, but Kyle has been the one to push it off. While he was great comedy relief as he was standoffish and cavemanish at every interaction with MaeBe, it only helped to brew all of that chemistry, that is until he faked his own death. As everyone calls it, the worst kept secret at McKay-Taggart, but necessary to keep his ex off Mae’s back. His ex is the villain who has only escalated in her villainy and part of that is to get rid of the woman who has stolen the man she claims is hers. She most likely has crazy eyes…just ask Ian all about crazy eyes.

This book brought it all, a fantastic love story, one to rival Erin and Theo’s and trust me, that is hard to do. It also had a psycho villain that was hard to catch and I love how Lexi creates these layered characters that affect so many different people over multiple books. Lastly, a found family that I want to join at McKay-Taggart, one that is near and dear to my heart after 26+ books. Lexi never fails to combine classic characters with new ones that always bring out my laughs and tears, typically during the same chapter. That alone is one of my favorite reasons that she has continued and will continue to be a one-click author for me.

The Dom Who Came in from the Cold is one of Lexi’s best books in this series. I had little doubt it would be with all of the books leading up to the build up of this special couple, but like I said above, I was blown away with the tension of the plot, and especially everyone that gathered around to help out the couple at McKay-Taggart. This book was epically phenomenal and everything I could have hoped for.

Synopsis:
Kyle Hawthorne once believed his future would be a job in the private sector—a simple, normal life. Fate had other plans and he wound up in the military. Some newly discovered talents caught the eye of the CIA, and in no time he was working with a covert team. He found himself in a relationship with fellow operative, Julia—until she turned out to be the enemy. When her betrayal was uncovered, things got bloody and Kyle returned home broken, searching for a chance to walk the road not taken.

MaeBe Vaughan has never been interested in normal. Her happy place is a dark corner of the Isexynternet, where she disrupts all the bad guys. She has a great circle of friends and a full life. She doesn’t need a man. Until Kyle Hawthorne walked into her life. He’s all wrong for her. Surly. Damaged. His uncle is her boss. But she couldn’t help getting close to him. When his past threatened her safety, Kyle walked out without saying good-bye.

Kyle will do anything to keep MaeBe safe. He faked his death, hid in the middle of nowhere, and watched over her from afar. But when Julia resurfaces, he knows that to protect MaeBe, he’ll have to get close. So close that if they manage to survive, he will never let her go.

Review – Knot My Problem by Sinclair Kelly

Knot My Problem; Knot Yours Omegaverse #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: January 31, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Omegaverse/Reverse Harem/Suspense/Age-Gap Romance

Author: Sinclair Kelly

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Reese was totally not what I expected and I loved it!!

Reese rolled into town covered in secrets and bruises and with all the mystery surrounding her I was super curious as to how her story would play out. On top of the mystery there was a ton of aggressive heat between her and the chief of police. Yummy!

Mac, the chief of police, already has a pack, but they never have had their own omega. Each alpha is drawn to Reese and really wants her to stay, but the friction between Mac is only one obstacle keeping her from staying. The other has to do with the way she originally came into town. Danger is on the horizon and she refuses to bring it to town, especially as feelings begin to grow for each alpha.

I loved that Reese spent time with each alpha getting to know them, but more than that, Jax who is a beta and not an original member of Mac’s pack, fits right into both Reese’s life and along with this strong alpha pack. I love Jax to death and Aaro, Jax and Reese together…whew!! Total hotness!!

Synopsis:
Secrets are my life.

But after so many years of living one lie after another, do I even really know who I am without them?

When work explodes—quite literally—in my face, I’m forced into hiding until the smoke clears. Now I’m living in a small town, with the one man who has the power to break down my carefully constructed identity. Ten years ago he walked away without so much as a goodbye and broke my fragile, barely legal heart. Looking back on it, there were so many obstacles in our way, but I would’ve been willing to risk his honor and integrity to have what I so desperately wanted—consequences be damned—if he hadn’t taken the choice out of my hands. Now here we are, older and wiser, or so I’d like to think. Could this time be different?

Except now he’s got a pack to consider and I have a very persistent Beta who refuses to give me any sort of space. For a woman used to handling things on her own, it’s all a little too much, too fast. Add in the threat that’s looming closer every day, and things are about to get messy.

If there’s one thing I need from the overprotective men in my life, it’s their trust. Yet they always underestimate me. It’s cool. I’m used to taking care of things on my own. This girl has everything under control. And when it comes to the men I love, I will do whatever is necessary to protect them.

What they choose to do next…well, it’s knot my problem.

For Trigger Warnings, please visit my website. Knot My Problem is book three in the Knot Yours Omegaverse, a series of fast-burn reverse harem romance standalones. Each book will end in an HEA and lead into the next book with a new reluctant omega and her own possessive, purring alphas.

Blog Tour - 2023, Suspense/Intrigue Romance, Year of Releases - 2023, Year of Reviews - 2023

Blog Tour – Indecent Proposal by Erika Wilde

Release Date: January 19

It wasn’t every day that I was shot at by a sniper. But this was now my life, being hunted by someone my (dead) ex-fiancé had crossed. They thought I had something he’d taken, and they weren’t going to stop until they had what they wanted.

I went to the best security company around, but what I ended up with was a bodyguard who was as hot and tempting as he was grumpy and annoyingly bossy. Vaughn reluctantly took me on as a client, despite my inability to pay, and put me in his own personal safehouse with a set of rules to follow. 

But a few of those rules?  Yeah, I broke them just because I knew it would provoke him. What I didn’t anticipate was the kind of punishment he decided to dole out . . . and it wasn’t long before we went from enemies, to lovers, and an indecent proposal was struck between us.

We both swore it was all temporary, but the closer Vaughn gets to finding out who is after me and why, I realize walking away from this man might be much harder than I’d ever imagined.

FORBIDDEN by Tia Louise is now live!

 

FORBIDDEN
By Tia Louise

I have one job: Get close and take him out. The only problem is, I want him more.

I was barely five when I lost my brother; seven when my father was murdered.
Overnight, I was taken by my mysterious uncle, grafted into a world of crime I didn’t understand and couldn’t escape.

The first ten years, I did my best to blend in.
The next four, I reinvented myself, growing stronger, searching for answers. 
Now I have one assignment—take down the man who knows our secrets. 

Professor Dirk Winston is my target, and I’m expected to be a good soldier, disguised as a good student.
Only he’s not the passive bookworm I expect. 
He’s ripped muscles, bedroom eyes, dirty mouth, and ready for a fight.

But I’ve got my plans of my own, and this hot teacher is going to do more than give me grades and take my panties. 
He’s going to help me get revenge.

(FORBIDDEN is a five-alarm-spicy age-gap, student-professor romance with secrets, lies, and answers to all your questions. No cheating. No cliffhanger.)

Review – Indecent Proposal by Erika Wilde

Indecent Proposal

Indecent Proposal; Indecent #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 19, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Intrigue/BDSM elements/Suspense Romance

Author: Erika Wilde

Review Rating: 4.5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Great suspense, mystery, and tension to begin this new series.

I loved how this series began, it caught and held my attention right from the start. The suspense was great and figuring out the mystery on who was after Claire held my attention all the way through, but it was the relationship between Claire and Vaughn that I could have just scrolled right past, to be honest. It wasn’t that I didn’t care, but it seemed to take center stage when Claire was literally in a life and death situation and at times it seemed out of place.

While Vaughn uses all of his skills, he works hard to figure out who is trying to kill Claire, while she is hidden away in a safe house. She’s not entirely alone, since Vaughn heads there often both debrief and to de-brief Claire – wink wink. Subtle I know, which is everything these two are not as Vaughn and Claire delve into light D/s and some other kinks, enjoy!

So, we really don’t get to meet the other members of Vaughn’s firm but for some very brief moments, but I am intrigued enough to jump back in and get to know more.

Synopsis:
It wasn’t every day that I was shot at by a sniper. But this was now my life, being hunted by someone my (dead) ex-fiancé had crossed. They thought I had something he’d taken, and they weren’t going to stop until they had what they wanted.

New Release – Dirty Crazy Bad 2 by Siobhan Davis

In the secret society of The Luminaries, no sin will go unpunished…

Dirty Crazy Bad 2, the addictive and jaw-dropping conclusion to the dark reverse-harem Dirty Crazy Bad Duet from USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Siobhan Davis is live now!

The Greed & Gluttony Luminary has trapped us into executing his evil plans, and it seems we have little option but to agree. Carter has orchestrated Chad’s kidnapping, and he holds my mom’s life in his hands.

Then he drops a game-changer

We must play our parts—or at least look like we are—because the fate of our loved ones, and the world at large, depends upon it. There is no choice.

It’s a delicate balancing act, with many obstacles and no guarantee of success. Carter has spent years planning his takeover and knowing who to trust is impossible.

Teamwork is the only way we can defeat him. But that is challenging when relationships are fractured, the guys are sworn enemies, and loyalties have been pushed to their limits.

It’s up to me to make this work, so I will push my grief aside to be there for Ares, Jase, and Chad.

Rhett Carter cannot become Lord of the Luminaries and we’re the only ones that can stop him.

Blog Tour – The Blood We Crave by Monty Jay

Release Date: December 13

My secrets are infested with infatuation.

His cravings are dripping in blood.

Is it love?

Or is it something much darker…

An obsession.

Death found me as a young girl. Latching onto the core of my soul.

No one knows what that horrid night did to me. What kind of monster it flourished inside me. I’d become a ghost, hiding from the world so that people would never find out about the morbid desire I harbor.

Until he noticed me.

Thatcher Alexander Pierson: Cunning. Sharp. Beautiful.

A man bred from the seed of a serial killer. Stitched together with old money and Dolce & Gabbana clothing.

He is my strongest fixation. My sweetest, darkest addiction.

And I’m his phantom.

I have haunted him my entire life and now?

He sees me for exactly what I am.

A killer.

New Release – The Blood We Crave by Monty Jay

Release Date: December 13

My secrets are infested with infatuation.

His cravings are dripping in blood.

Is it love?

Or is it something much darker…

An obsession.

Death found me as a young girl. Latching onto the core of my soul.

No one knows what that horrid night did to me. What kind of monster it flourished inside me. I’d become a ghost, hiding from the world so that people would never find out about the morbid desire I harbor.

Until he noticed me.

Thatcher Alexander Pierson: Cunning. Sharp. Beautiful.

A man bred from the seed of a serial killer. Stitched together with old money and Dolce & Gabbana clothing.

He is my strongest fixation. My sweetest, darkest addiction.

And I’m his phantom.

I have haunted him my entire life and now?

He sees me for exactly what I am.

A killer.

I sicken him. But he has always mesmerized me.

Review – Natural Disaster by Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

Natural Disaster; Deserted Island #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: December 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/MFM/Midnight Dynasty Romance

Author: Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A heart pounding read for so many reasons!! Non-stop action, intense emotions, wild weather, and wicked chemistry between not just two people, but three.

I kept wondering through the entire book…how will they come out of this alive?After the cliffhanger from book one, I wasn’t sure how the three of them would even see each other again much less survive the wrath of the wild jungle, but leave it up to a Morelli and that family makes anything possible while looking downright sinful doing it.

Carter and Theo work together to get June back after she’s taken from the island. That’s right, Carter works with the man who, when book one ended helped in June’s capture, but there is so much underlying to Theo and his backstory. Understanding him and his intentions…ugh…I fell for the guy BIG time as the story progressed.

All I want to say about Carter…imagine 007 crossed with Indiana Jones, but in Morelli form…yummy!! It totally makes me want to be June, who by the way is the perfect glue for these two men. She understands the intensity in both of their characters. While Carter may wear his on his sleeves in a refined form, Theo’s is raw and untapped and June’s ability to view them and understand them for who they are is quite precious. She is the perfect softness for both of these alpha men.

This book is intense, filled with non-stop action and quite the cliffhanger. I can hardly wait to dive back in to find out how it all concludes.

Synopsis:
Carter Morelli had a plan when he left London: deliver the wildlife photographer and then complete his secret mission. Except a lethal enemy has watched their every move. They tampered with the plane, leaving them stranded on a deserted island.

And they kidnapped June Porter, the innocent photographer.

In order to save her, Carter must confront the mysterious man in the jungle.

Who is he? Savior or betrayer?

He has no choice but to face the greatest enemy of all: the powerful feelings that draw him toward both June and the man in the jungle. Those feelings might kill them all.

Welcome to the Midnight Dynasty… The warring Morelli and Constantine families have enough bad blood to fill an ocean, and their brand new stories will be told by your favorite dangerous romance authors.

WARNING: This book is intended for readers eighteen years old and over. It contains material that some readers could find disturbing. Enter at your own risk…

Review – Wild Saint by Luna Kayne

Wild Saint (Vicious Empire, #3)

Wild Saint; Vicious Empire #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 1, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Dark//Suspense/Intrigue/Second Chance Romance

Author: Luna Kayne

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Each book in this series just gets better and better!! I’m so blown away with how each book in the Vicious Empire has given me pieces of the overall puzzle which has then lead me masterfully to the next bread crumb without giving too much away. Not only has it kept me interested, but it’s kept me on the edge of my seat and completely captivated! Plus, the romance has been brilliant!

From the very beginning of Wild Saint, this book was non-stop action. Dagen and Nyla barely had a moment to catch their breaths while they were trying to survive in the wilderness after a plane crash and on the run from hitmen. This book has it all!! Action, adventure, chemistry, heat, intrigue, and second chances. It was like stepping into a romantic-adventure movie.

Their story, while full of adventure, is also sweet with the knowledge of the daughter they share between them. I won’t say much, because it should be enjoyed as a reader, but with each book it’s easy to see that family is important between these brothers and as each man has fallen in love it’s wonderful to see how easily they open their hearts to those they hold close. That is what I found sweet with Dagen and Nyla in those tender moments and appreciated in those few down times between all of the action that happened in this story.

While this book did spend more time away from the other Saint brothers than the previous two, mainly due to secluded time in the wilderness, the driving plot that has carried over from the beginning is still there and will continue into the fourth book.  This is a series and should be read in order for the best reading enjoyment. The pinnacle is coming and I can hardly wait for the next book so it will all to come together.

Synopsis:
SHE BEAT HIM AT HIS OWN GAME ONCE.
NOW IT’S ROUND TWO,
AND THIS TIME THEY’RE PLAYING DIRTY.

DAGEN SAINT
Five years ago, Nyla stole two million dollars from me and disappeared.
Now she’s resurfaced, and I’m determined to settle her debt…one way or another.
Hiking in the mountains in my underwear while being hunted by hitmen wasn’t something I thought we’d be doing when I woke up this morning, yet here we are.
If we can settle our issues and work together, we just might make it out alive—if we don’t kill each other first.

NYLA JENSEN
I conned the con five years ago, but he took something I wasn’t prepared to leave behind—my heart.
Now I’m stranded in the wilderness with the one person who has every reason to hate me, and we have no choice but to work together, or we’re dead.
It turns out surviving the elements and the men who are searching for us is the easy part.
The hard part is being close to Dagen, coming clean, and looking him in the eye. Those same eyes I see every time I look at the daughter he doesn’t know we have.

* Wild Saint is the third book in the Vicious Empire dark romance family saga series and should be read in order.

Cruel Saint (Vicious Empire, #1) Brutal Saint (Vicious Empire, #2) Savage Saint (Vicious Empire, #4)

Review – Force of Nature by Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

Force of Nature; Deserted Island #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: September 6, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Suspense/MFM & MMF Romance

Author: Skye Warren and Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The first part of this book contains the prequel, The Crash, so if you missed it, don’t worry, but if you’ve already read it you can jump right into the action and begin reading Force of Nature.

Never once does this book let off the gas. Carter and June are fighting to stay alive throughout the entire story and that fight is not only from human targets, but from the jungle itself. Carter Morelli may be a genius professor in biology, but there is vegetation even he is not aware of and just like people, not all plants are good.

While the mystery man of the island is introduced, he is still a bit of a mystery and we are left on an intense cliffhanger, so I do not want to give away anything that could be misleading.

Jane Porter is sweet, but has a tougher background than she initially portrays. Her fighting spirit is going to go far in this unforgiving environment.

Carter Morelli is so different than he’s come across in other Midnight Dynasty books, but that is also the cover he likes to portray. I, for one, love the intrigue of his background and the intensity he brings.

Force of Nature is fast, intense, and still insanely hot. There is so much more story to tell for each of these characters and I am so here for it. I can hardly wait for the next part of this series.

Synopsis:
Carter Morelli survived a dark childhood and dangerous missions. But when he emergency lands a small aircraft on the ocean, he faces something worse: having someone depend on him. He has to keep innocent June Porter safe on the deserted island.

Carter doesn’t want to care about beautiful June. He doesn’t want to care about the mysterious and sensual man who’s almost part of the wilderness.

Scorching chemistry draws all three of them deeper.

Review – No Time to Lie by Lexi Blake

No Time to Lie; Masters and Mercenaries Reloaded #4, M&M #25
(#4 within a series, #25 within the entire series)

Publication Date: September 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Suspense/BDSM/Intrigue Romance

Author: Lexi Blake

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
The big, loud, and fantastic McKay-Taggart family is back and I love every single time they are all together on the page. This time CIA operative Drake Radcliffe is front and center, but since he’s worked with McKay-Taggart and this particular op is tied heavily to one of their own, of course they are right there lending a hand and lending all kinds of love and life advice to Drake and his beautiful love interest, Taylor Cline.

Drake is looking to finally bring in Julia Ennis, dead or alive. She’s done a lot of damage to several ops at McKay-Taggart since her resurrection from the dead. That’s right, Julia was thought to be dead, but it turns out she is very much alive, and she is also Drake’s sister and was also Kyle’s partner. Soooooo many ties begin to come together, or perhaps unravel, either way you look at it, it’s a dream come true for a FANatic like myself.

While the team is working on this huge op, Drake is also working on his second opportunity with the woman of his dreams, Taylor Cline. She is the one who got away, or perhaps the one that he fudged up with when he let his job get in the way. Now he finally has a chance to get things right and even though they are chasing down the same bad guy or girl in this case, he’s not letting opportunity pass him by and he’s set on winning a place back in her heart.

Drake is one big, sappy puppy when it comes to Taylor most of the time, but he’s also the perfect Dom when the time comes for it. Basically he’s pretty perfect and I love every inch of his character. Taylor is a great match for him on every level and I look forward to seeing how their relationship molds and shapes in future books.

Speaking of the future, or maybe more like the past…hmmmm….I loved the past characters that popped up in this book and the body positivity that always shines through, no matter what age or length of marriage, it’s probably one of the biggest things that draws me back to Lexi’s books over and over again. Her characters are not only bada$&, but they are empowering. Ian’s speeches, usually about what his employee is doing wrong always make me laugh, but he also tends to be right, just not in a subtle way – at all. Another thing that draws me back to Lexi’s books is Ian’s humor, which I could read over and over, but he might get an even bigger head if we let him have his way too much. Lastly, there is nothing more endearing than having that special place for people who feel like a misfit or outcast and Ian Taggart, or should I say, Lexi has built a world where everyone fits in and is accepted. Her books have a way of doing just that and no matter who you are or where you’ve come from there is a place within the big, crazy family of McKay-Taggart.

Synopsis:
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 pushed away.

A beacon of love and compassion

Taylor Cline committed the cardinal sin for an analyst—she fell for the operative she was working for. 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 career threatened, 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.

Review – Warped Minds by Elena Lawson

Publication Date: August 30, 2022

Author: Elena Lawson

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Full of tension, high stakes, and death defying situations, Ava Jade, Grey, Rook and Corvus make this final book a nail biting until the very last page.

From the very start of this series, Ava Jade has been a powerful force. She’s never let someone walk all over her and she’s tackled every challenge that’s been thrown her way. All of her strength, both mental and physical, comes into play in this final showdown and once again she proves to be one bada$$ woman.

Corvus, Rook, and Grey each have their own struggles in this final book, and individually those will tear at your heart. It’s quite evident that this foursome doesn’t work unless they are together, but with a madman on the loose, will everyone survive?

Warped Minds is a wild ride from start to finish. It’s dark and should not be read as a standalone.

Synopsis:
One, two, the Crows are coming for you
Three, four, time to settle the score
Five, six, Rook will get his fix
Seven, eight, accept your fate
Nine, ten, this is your end.

Warped Minds is the fourth and final book in the Boys of Briar Hall series and should be read after Twisted Games.

Warning: This series contains foul language, graphic depictions of gang violence, references to past trauma, and jealous/possessive themes. Please read responsibly.

Excerpt

It’s raining as my husband’s casket is lowered into the hole in the ground. Raining hard, as if the sky itself is about to rip in half like my heart has.
I stand motionless under an umbrella with the other mourners, listening to the priest drone on about resurrection and glory, blessings and suffering, redemption and the holy love of God. So many words, and all so meaningless.
Everything is meaningless. There’s a Michael-shaped hole in my chest, and nothing matters anymore.
That must be why I feel so numb. I’m empty. Grief has blown me apart, scattering my bones into a desert wasteland where they’ll bake in silence under a merciless sun for a thousand years.
A woman behind me quietly weeps into her handkerchief. Sharon? Karen? A colleague of Michael’s who I met at a long-ago faculty party. One of those awful holiday work parties in a school auditorium where they serve cheap wine in plastic cups and people stand around making awkward small talk until they’re drunk enough to say what they really think about each other.
Sharon or Karen behind me told Michael he was a prick at that party. I can’t remember why, but that’s probably why she’s crying now.
When someone dies, you start counting all the ways you failed them.
The priest makes the sign of the cross over his chest. He closes his Bible and steps back. I walk slowly forward, bend down to grasp a handful of soil from the pile to one side, then toss it onto the closed casket.
The wet clump of dirt makes an ugly hollow sound when it lands on the gray lid of the coffin, an uncaring splat of finality. Then it slides off, leaving a smear of brown behind like a shit stain.
Abruptly, I’m shaking with anger. I taste ashes and bitterness in my mouth.
What a stupid ritual this is. Why do we even bother? It’s not like the dead can see us mourning them. They’re gone.
A sudden gust of cold wind rattles the leaves in the trees. I turn and walk away through the rain, not looking back when someone softly sobs my name.
I need to be alone with my grief. I’m not one of those people who likes to commiserate over a tragedy. Especially when the tragedy is my own.
When I open the front door of the house, it takes a moment for me to register that I’m home. I have no recollection of the drive from the gravesite to here, though the blank spot in time doesn’t surprise me. Since the accident, I’ve been in a fog. It’s as if my brain is blanketed in thick clouds.
I kick off my shoes and leave them under the console table in the foyer. Tossing my wool coat onto the back of a kitchen chair, I head to the fridge. I open the door and stand looking inside as rain drums against the windowpanes and I try to convince myself I’m hungry.
I’m not. I know I should eat to keep my strength up, but I have no appetite for anything. I let the door swing shut and press my fingers against my throbbing temples.
When I turn around, I notice the envelope on the table next to the fruit bowl. It sits by itself, a white rectangle with neat handwriting and a stamp that reads “LOVE” in red letters.
I know for a fact it wasn’t there when I left.
My first thought is that Fiona must’ve brought in the mail. Then I remember she cleans the house on Mondays. Today’s Sunday.
So how did it get there?
As I cross to the table and pick up the letter, a rumble of thunder rattles the windows. A sudden gust of wind whistles through the trees outside. The eerie feeling intensifies when I read the return address.
Washington State Penitentiary.
Frowning, I tear open the edge of the envelope and pull out the single sheet of white unlined paper inside. I unfold it and read aloud.
“I’ll wait forever if I have to.”
That’s it. There’s nothing else, except a signature scratched below the words.
Dante.
I flip the page over, but it’s blank on the other side.
For a fleeting moment, I think the letter must be intended for Michael. That idea gets tossed aside when I realize it’s addressed to me. That’s my name right there on the front of the envelope, printed in neat block letters with blue pen. This Dante person, whoever he is, meant for me to receive this.
But why?
And what is he waiting for?
Unsettled, I fold the letter into thirds, stuff it back into the envelope, and drop it on the table. Then I make sure all the doors and windows are locked. I draw the drapes and blinds against the wet gray afternoon, pour myself a glass of wine, then sit at the kitchen table, staring at the envelope with a strange feeling of foreboding.
A feeling that something’s coming.
And that whatever it is, it isn’t good.

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Completely blown away! Not only was I moved to the point of speechlessness, but I felt ALL the emotional things that once I finished the book still keep leaking out of my eyes.

I feel completely gobsmacked. I fell in love with the beautiful love story and followed along trying to find all of the twists before they happened, but alas…I never saw the train before it ran me over. Holy smokes!! What a fantastic book!!!

I don’t even know where to begin without giving even the teeny-tiniest hint away at the ever evolving mystery or intrigue that grew throughout the entire book. Between the pen pal letters, secondary characters and main character plot development the entire book held me in its grip, gave me goosebumps and has basically left me with a lasting impression that will not be leaving any time soon.

Yes, this book is HAWT, and yes that needed to be capitalized, but it also delves into subjects well beyond the smexy, smutty times and I loved those just as much. Soooo, let’s recap what I haven’t been able to say, but I’ll reiterate anyway…WOW, just WOW!! Amazing book!

And nothing on earth could have prepared me for what happened next.

About Rogue

Secrets are kind of my thing.

Or at least they were. Now my lies are catching up to me, and the stakes are higher than ever.

The men who unexpectedly claimed me are breaking down every wall I have, exposing vulnerabilities and opening old wounds. But now is not the time for weakness. Not when someone is out to get us and enemies are around every corner. It’s time for me to embrace the inner strength that’s guarded my soul for the last decade and prove to the Sinner’s Mark men that I’m more than capable of taking care of myself…and them too.

The average woman would be afraid. But I’m not your average woman. I’m the monster under the bed. The shadow lurking in the corner. I’m the one thing the darkness fears, and there will be no mercy for those that hurt the ones I love.

Rogue is book two in the Sinners Mark MC series, a medium-burn reverse harem romance featuring darker elements. Prepare for a cliffhanger ending with no HEA until the final book.

Review – Beyond My Darkness by R.C. Boldt

60387101. sy475

Beyond My Darkness
(A standalone)

Publication Date: July 12, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Romantic Suspense/Gang/Supernatural Twist

Author: R.C. Boldt

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This book was just everything! Funny and witty, steamy and intense with a supernatural flair and dark gang vibes. Every moment flowed and all of the characters clicked together with ease, so what I’m trying to say is….it was reading perfection!

This is R.C. Boldt writing at her best. Combing her wit of steamy romcoms with her walk into the romantic suspense relm. This combination is so good and so well pieced together that the intense moments are perfectly well balanced with lots of snarky humor.

Georgia Danvers was an absolute delight. Sassy and smart and totally full of word vomit every time she’s around Bronson Cortez, the leader of the Scorpion gang. While Georgia knows better than to attract Bronson’s attention, she can’t avoid the dead bodies that keep piling up in her morgue, that literally keep telling her warn him. What is a girl to do when she can speak to the dead?

Bronson doesn’t trust outsiders, but when a gorgeous redhead shows up in his territory to give him a message, it’s safe to say that he doesn’t like it and has a message of his own. However, Georgia is a fiery woman who continues to come back again and again. There are not many people who stand up to Bronson Cortez and live to see another day, especially ones who sass back the way she does, but there is something about her that intrigues him.  Whatever it is he wishes he could figure out before it proves too dangerous for both of them.

Bronson is a great anti-hero and honestly Georgia is too. Both of them hold their own forms of darkness, but they are also good people if you look at them from all the different angles. I LOVE these kind of stories and especially love how the characters find their paths to each other. Anti-heros never have an easy road as there are always a ton of obstacles to overcome and this book added in mystery with that touch of supernatural so it really had an extra zing that kept the pages turning.

Synopsis:
USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt delivers a seductively unique romantic suspense with a paranormal twist in Beyond My Darkness…

Twelve years ago, I fled, vowing to never again use my power. But everything changes when I break that vow and bring two bodies back to life in the morgue.

It sends me spinning directly into his orbit.

Arrogant. Menacing. Enigmatic. That’s Bronson Cortez, the notoriously violent gang leader who remains elusive to authorities.

He breaks the law at every turn and answers to no one. But when he offers me an alluring glimpse of what lies beneath that iron-clad exterior, I realize there’s more to him than meets the eye.

The man who fiercely guards his heart somehow manages to claim mine.

But he doesn’t know the truth about me.

I wonder if he could be the first to accept me for who I am—what I am.

I wonder if he’ll be the first to see beyond my darkness.

FILTHY by Tia Louise is now live!


FILTHY

By Tia Louise

Good girls are saved by princes, but my savior is a monster.

After my father died and my family splintered, I became a target, a pawn in a game I didn’t know I was playing.

Then he appeared–dark, dangerous, tormented, and always just within reach.

He makes me feel something I lost years ago: Safe.

And he thinks he can keep me at arm’s length.

Once upon a time I was a hero, until the sins of my father caught up with me, and I was forced into darkness.

I should’ve died in that fire. Instead, I served evil men, until I risked it all by walking away.

Now I’m a wanted man. At any time, I could be taken down for what I owe.

What I don’t expect to find in my hiding place is her–broken, beautiful, so damn tempting.

I shouldn’t touch her with my filthy hands. I was hired to keep her safe.

But every day it gets harder, then she starts sneaking into my bed.

Together, we’re filthy, but together, we can find our way through the flames.

(FILTHY is a stand-alone, bodyguard, romantic suspense novel. It contains a fierce, wounded alpha-protector and the filthy girl he’s hired to protect… No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Blog Tour – Delighted by Lexi Blake

Delighted, an all-new captivating Masters and Mercenaries novella from New York Times bestselling author Lexi Blake and 1,001 Dark Nights, is available now!

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, Lou, is the best kid she could have hoped for. Lou’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.**

“It was a rough day. I could use a hug, if you don’t mind,” she said, trying to hold back tears. “The oven is going to die soon, and I don’t have the money to fix it, and I’m going to fail.”
His arms came around her, and she breathed him in. He smelled clean and crisp, like a spring wind. Her brain knew it had to be soap, but she associated the smell with him, and it soothed her.
“It’s okay.” He rocked her a little. “I’ve got a friend who is good with appliances. I can ask her to look at it. Don’t worry, Daph. It’s going to be all right. Lou’s good here. I promise. Lou’s good, and you’re going to be okay. I can’t let you go under or Big Tag would get mad at me. He really likes lemon cupcakes.”
They stood there for a moment, his warmth melting some of the ice that had built up over the last several years.
She tilted her head up, and that gorgeous man was staring down at her like he could eat her up, and warm was no longer the word she would use.
Hot. Desire flooded her system like a flash fire, and she wanted nothing more than to go up on her toes and kiss those magnificent lips of his.
Those lips belonged to another woman, and that woman was in the building. What the hell was she thinking? He was a nice man. He didn’t want to kiss her. He was being kind.
She stepped back, wiping her eyes. “Thank you, Boomer. And if you do have someone who can take a look at the oven, I would so appreciate it. You get all the cupcakes. What kind does MaeBe like? Would she be okay with the hugging thing?”
He frowned, like he was trying to figure something out. “I hug Mae a lot. At least I used to. She’s not so huggy these days. She likes anything chocolate.”
Boomer had looked sad when he’d said Mae didn’t hug him much anymore. She hated the thought of this big cuddly god of a man being in a cold relationship, but she wasn’t going to be the reason they broke up.
“Then I will make her something chocolate, and the lemon ones for your boss,” Daphne promised. She had to get these crazy urges under control or she would need to find Lou another place to stay, and she got the feeling Lou would object. “So where is the lounge? Or the gulag. That one kind of scares me.”
“Kala? Oh, that proves you have excellent instincts.” Boomer turned to walk back down the hall.
Those heads were back up above their cubicle walls, and she also noticed the doors to a whole bunch of offices were open.
“Is there a reason everyone is watching us?” She hurried down the hall to catch up with him.
“Because they’re all nosy bastards, and I can’t even complain,” Boomer replied. “I was a nosy bastard, too. We’re a weird family, and everyone is always in everyone else’s business, but it’s not a bad thing. The kind of people who would take advantage get weeded out very quickly around here. Big Tag takes care of them, and there’s usually a lawsuit, but that’s what Mitch is for. Hey, we also have a criminal defense attorney on call. Her name is Lea, and she’s really scary. Now if she had been working the reception desk when we invaded, we might have had trouble.”
She loved listening to him talk. His voice was deep, but every word was tinged with the humor he seemed to have for the world around him. The positive light he exuded was always there in his words.
If only the man weren’t attached…
She shoved aside the thought because he was totally out of her league. They weren’t even playing the same game.
But maybe they could be friends.
