Review – Provocation by T.K. Leigh

59983854. sy475

Provocation; Temptation #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: April 25, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Intrigue/Age Gap/Contemporary Romance

Author: T.K. Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Intense, with dramatic moments, and a jaw dropping ending.

Before finding romance and then never looking back, my favorite books were filled with mystery, murder, suspense and maybe a little romantic tension between characters, but that was never the underlying theme. T.K. Leigh has brought out the best of what I used to devour in those murder/mystery books while adding the spice I now crave.

Provocation is the third book in the Temptation series and really should not be read out of order. In this installment Julia and Lachlan finally left Hawaii, they’ve left their love bubble and are now trying to figure out how to make things work in the real world.

They both live very public lives and Julia has a teenage daughter, so leaving their bubble isn’t necessarily easy, but can it be done? Especially when it appears new murders might be happening on a copycat level of what Julia’s incarcerated husband used to commit.

This book is intense for delving into their relationship and for opening up the past murder cases. All the connections and their growing love is super delicious and while also jaw dropping at times.

I’ve been on the edge of my seat through this entire series and can hardly wait to see how everything turns out in the very end. So, prepare for a wallop of a cliffhanger, but it’s the last of them before the final book. So I’m super excited for the next one to arrive. Bring it on!!!

Synopsis:

One week. No names. No expectations.

That was our agreement.

We were supposed to walk away once our time in Hawaii was over.

No matter what.

I didn’t think it would be this difficult…
But it is.

I didn’t think I’d ever fall in love again…
But I did.

Worse, I didn’t think I’d ever trust again…
But I do.

Until the bottom drops in a way I never could have anticipated.

Lines are drawn.
Loyalties are tested.
And I’m stuck in the middle, torn between two opposing forces threatening my very existence.

Do I listen to what all rationale and reason tells me to be true?
Or do I follow the path I know deep in my soul is the right one?

I’m engaged in a fierce battle between my head and my heart.
And there can only be one winner.

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.

Review – Fearless by Tia Louise

60153010. sy475

Fearless 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: March 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Intrigue/Opposites Attract/Forced Proximity Romance

Author: Tia Louise

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Fast plot, mysterious suspense and a super hot steamy couple!! Tia brought ALL my springtime joy in her latest book, Fearless.

This book does not stop once it begins. Action, mystery, great secondary characters, and super steamy romance all combine into one of Tia Louise’s best books.

Between the sleepy town of Hamiltown and the big city of New York there is danger headed for the van Hamilton daughters and Hutch Winston has been hired to protect them. Blake’s uncle sends word to his nieces to come visit him under, but when they arrive he’s missing. Thus sets off a dangerous adventure and a dive into their past feelings that ignites into a blazing fire.

Hutch is a PI in Hamiltown, working alongside his brother Dirk and his silent, but best friend, Scar. Between these three no case has ever gone unsolved, but the van Hamilton’s are certainly giving them a run for their money. (There is a lot of underlying tension between Scar and Blake’s sister Hana too- yum.)

This book is non-stop adventure and I hope we get to visit these characters again, especially the vivacious Pepper, Hutch’s niece. She’s just too adorable.

Synopsis:

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 band of criminals who want her money, and maybe even her life.
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. The forced proximity angle sets it all ablaze. No cheating. No cliffhangers.)

Review – Persuasion by T.K. Leigh

59983826. sy475

Persuasion; Temptation #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: March 7, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Reverse Age Gap/Suspense Romance

Author: T.K. Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A mind bending, suspenseful romantic read!

I am in total awe of how T.K. Leigh has fit this entire plot together. Every piece slotted to fit at the exact right moment to completely blow mind and shock me right out of my socks! Then…the steam, the tension, the chemistry between Lochlan and Julia is off the charts!! This series is totally amazing!!

This is the second book in the Temptation series and should not be read as a standalone. We pick up right after the last book where Julia finds out that the man she’s made a deal to spend the a week with, while she’s on Hawaii for business, is not necessarily just a low-key local, he’s famous in his own right, but that’s not all. His sister is connected to her life, the life she wants to shed and leave in her past.

The story grows and is super intense with all the connections between them. I LOVED all the information that came to light, while these two were also figuring out their brief relationship and trying to keep their intense feelings under wraps. This series is brilliantly written and at this point it’s only half done. There is still more to come and I can hardly wait for how everything is going to play out.

Synopsis:

I came to Hawaii to get answers about my sister’s death.

But that all changes when I meet her.

Beautiful. Charming. Haunted.

And the last thing I need in my life.

But that doesn’t mean I can stay away from her, a powerful force pulling me toward her when all rationale tells me to keep my distance.

So we make an agreement.

One week. No names. No falling in love.

It’s the perfect plan.

Until a shocking revelation shakes my foundation to its core, leaving me to question everything I thought I knew about her.

I knew this temptation was a disaster waiting to happen.
I didn’t realize it would be so devastating.

Review – Her Broken Pieces by Rachel Leigh

59729792. sy475

Her Broken Pieces; Fallen Kingdom #2 
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: February 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Dark/Second Chance Romance

Author: Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Intense, steamy and suspenseful. The second half of this duet picks up right where the last book left off and keeps on running with page turning action right on through to the end.

Callum and Bella haven’t had it easy throughout their entire lives. Growing up in foster care and separated once before when they were young they have now just found each other again. However, as they were just as they were falling in love they were ripped apart and lost to one another once more. But this time around, Bella won’t give up so easily, refusing to believe the lies that Callum could be dead. She fights her way back to finding the truth, but her life may be the next one on the line and could Callum find her time this time to save her?

Callum and Bella don’t have it easy, that is for sure, as their love story is fraught with danger, uncovered secrets, and lots of steamy passion.

This is the second half of a book duet and best read in order to achieve the most enjoyment.

Synopsis:

His hollow heart called to me.

Charred black from years of his own torture.

An urge to fill the empty spaces that I was responsible for when I left him.

He thought I deserved the same wrath he endured all those years ago.

I came when I was summoned.

Unaware that my past was waiting behind closed doors.

One look into those eyes that wore dark shades of fury, and I knew this was part of his plan.

With time, I started to see fragments of the boy I once knew.

Before long, he was a man holding the key to my heart.

Now that I’m ready to give him all of me, he’s gone and all that’s left is the broken pieces of my shattered heart.

Book Two of the Fallen Kingdom Duet. It is recommended to read Book One, His Hollow Heart, first.

Coming February 24th, the second book in the Fallen Kingdom duet will leave you breathless!

The Truths We Burn; The Hollow Boys #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: February 16, 2002

Genre/Tropes: Antihero/Dark/Enemies-to-Lovers/Second Chance/Secret Romance/New Adult Romance/Intrigue

Author: Monty Jay

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I loved how this book was plotted, written, and how brilliantly it all came together! Rook and Sage were emotionally deeper and darker together than I was expecting. A gripping read from start to finish.

I hardly like to start a review by referencing the previous book, but The Truths We Burn is a book that really should be read after reading The Lies We Steal.  In the first book Rosemary, Sage’s sister, is dead. Rose is past tense and the Hollow Boys are seeking justice throughout the entire book for her mysterious death. As a reader we don’t personally get to know Rose or the true emotions behind why Rose was so important to each of these boys since Rose is an abstract thought, but in book two, this book, the veil is now lifted and ties become connected making Rose a living and breathing subject and the plot is now thicker. Everything was more emotional and these boys borrowed a place in my heart even deeper.

This has to be one of my favorite type of writing styles as a reader. Moving timelines where we believe we are in the present, but it then moves to the past, and then moves beyond what we thought was the original present, completely blowing my mind, yessssss! While it may seem frustrating, it truly makes the plot suspenseful while also giving depth and tons of emotions to the characters unveiling their motivations to those past actions.

Let me explain. The Lies We Steal is one continuous timeline, like I said, Rose is dead. The Truth We Burn begins with part one in the past where Rose is alive and while I seem fixated on this point, this is very much Rook and Sage’s story. We begin in the past where Rook and Sage are more acquaintances by association. They live in the same town, Rose is dating Silis, Rook’s best friend and they attend the same high school. Once Rose dies and we move past everything in book one, we now land in part two where Sage is returning from her stay in an asylum and Rook isn’t happy that she’s returned. There is so much history to burn down between these two and their second chance, enemies-hate relationship is angsty galore.

Sage and Rose are twins, but over the years they have grown apart, become their own people. While Sage wears a mask to get through her day, to be the queen bee at school, to actually be with her boyfriend that she barely tolerates, she also envy/hates Rose who runs free, dates the wrong boy, wears the wrong clothes, but the main thing Rose gets to do is be herself. It’s basically exhausting being Sage. Underneath her mask she is a beautiful phoenix and I loved the strong woman that she kept hidden.

Rook is the only person who notices Sage isn’t who she pretends to be, but it’s because he also hides secrets. While he’s drawn to her poisonous beauty, it’s not her outside beauty that draws him in, it’s her fire, spirit, and willingness to fight, something that he’s personally drawn to, his own personal demons crave. Sage may be his reckoning or his undoing. Rook may be known throughout town as a crazy pyro, but he is so much deeper than he lets others see and my emotional heartstrings pulled for this man…hard!!

Rook and Sage’s story was absolutely divine, their brokenness, their passion, their worry over others was heartbreaking. This book touches on a lot of dark and tough subjects; abuse, mental illness, death, etc…, but it is written with deep love and understanding. The connection the Hollow Boys have with each other leaps off the page and in turn the love they find with each of their women is all consuming it makes this book a gripping page turner.

And you’re not making it out without getting burned.

The Hollow Boys.
One wrong move and I landed myself directly in their line of fire.
This is not a story about love, it is not a story of happy endings.
Love just happened to blossom in our sorrows, in our pain, our fear, our blood.

Hollow Heights University in the macabre, somber seaside town of Ponderosa Springs.
A college for prestigious, wealthy children to receive the highest education. A town drowning in treachery and secrets that became our damnation.

Read Kay’s Review of The Lies We Steal

59010421. sy475

It’s been months since the day we stood above that empty grave that stunk of burnt flesh and secrets. All of us were dressed to the nines, one of us wearing a wedding dress, a day that was supposed to mark the beginning of a new adventure. It marked the bitter end of our vengeance. We have done things that have marked our souls for eternity. But before we get there, we have to go back. Back to where it all started. The place I could find in my sleep.

Hollow Heights University in the macabre, somber seaside town of Ponderosa Springs. A college for prestigious, wealthy children to receive the highest education. A town drowning in treachery and secrets that became our damnation. But it wasn’t the forest surrounding the grounds or even the mysterious hidden mausoleum that haunted me. It was them. The ones that lurked in the night, things so wicked, so twisted, so evil, they would become the rulers of my nightmares. The Hollow Boys.

One wrong move and I landed myself directly in their line of fire. This is not a story about love, it is not a story of happy endings. Love just happened to blossom in our sorrows, in our pain, our fear, our blood. Every terrible thing they ever did, we watched, we helped, we loved them anyway. Some run from their monsters, we fell in love with ours.242140826-408479337566339-7143392252972375453-n

Blog Tour – CONTROLLED BURN by Marie James

🔥🔥HOT NEW RELEASE🔥🔥

Release Date: February 3

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.

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

Review – Obtaining Hope by Elizabeth Knight

58405088. sy475

Obtaining Hope; Hope Series #4 
(#4 within a series)

Publication Date: January 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Reverse Harem/Shifter/Paranormal Romance

Author: Elizabeth Knight

Review Rating: 4 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The dramatic conclusion to a RH, shifter series.

This was my first Elizabeth Knight book. I know….I started at the end of a series, but I easily caught up to the plot of what Viv and her mates were facing and felt the love she shared with all seven (YES, seven) of her men. That would be a lot of laundry to clean, but these men are werewolves and they bust out of their clothes when they shift, sooooo laundry problem solved.

In this final book of the Hope Series and there is a lot of suspense and action. Tracking down the enemy to finally achieving peace takes not only Viv and her seven mates, but the help of wolves throughout the country. This is the time that Viv’s Dama really comes shining through.

Is any of this story plausible? This is a paranormal story, so absolutely not, but there were scenes that certainly had me thinking, even with their paranormal abilities that this group would have needed more time in planning the big attacks that they did. That is truly my opinion and I’m sticking with it.

There are moments that could be sensitive for some readers, regarding motherhood and loss of life, but this is also a fantastical world so I feel Elizabeth kept that in mind when writing those bits.

This is a series that is best read in order, but I did jump in right at the end and enjoyed the final book to this werewolf world.

Synopsis:

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.

Part of a series, best read in order:

Hidden Hope (Hope, #1) Claiming Hope (Hope, #2) Defending Hope (Hope #3)

Review – Temptation by T.K. Leigh

59630405. sy475

Temptation; Temptation #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: OW-YM/Intrigue/Contemporary Romance

Author: T.K. Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Tantalizing, intriguing, and the mic drop ending…it took minutes to pick my jaw up from the floor.

The explosive build up between Lachlan and Julia is truly delicious. I was fanning myself over their chemistry and eagerly awaiting as their attraction grew and grew until they were tempted beyond control. I’ve never been to Hawaii, but now I want to visit…yesterday.

Aside from the couples brewing chemistry, the intriguing storyline is also interwoven throughout. Both Lachlan and Julia have a dark cloud hanging over their heads and it really moves the story along. I wanted to know more about their past and of course I was eager to find out more while wanting these two to rip each others clothes off, I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

This is just the first book in this fantastic series and I can’t wait to jump back in for more.

Synopsis:

A sexy Australian surfer.
An attraction she can’t ignore.
Business has never been so pleasurable.

It was supposed to be a typical business trip to Hawaii. During the day, I’d put the final touches on the new location of my bakery. At night, I’d relax on the lanai while sipping a glass of wine.

But that all changed when I met Lachlan.

Sexy. Intriguing. Haunted.

And easily fifteen years younger than me.

I should walk away. Forget about the way he sparks a yearning inside me I thought died years ago.

But something keeps drawing me back to him.

So I make a proposition. One week. No last names. No expectations.

It was the perfect plan…

Until it wasn’t.

They say temptation can be dangerous. I didn’t realize it could be so deadly.

#3 Provocation – Releasing April 25
 
One week. No names. No expectations.
 
That was our agreement.
 
We were supposed to walk away once our time in Hawaii was over.
 
No matter what.
 
I didn’t think it would be this difficult…
But it is.
 
I didn’t think I’d ever fall in love again…
But I did.
 
Worse, I didn’t think I’d ever trust again…
But I do.
 
Until the bottom drops in a way I never could have anticipated.
 
Lines are drawn.
Loyalties are tested.
And I’m stuck in the middle, torn between two opposing forces threatening my very existence.
 
Do I listen to what all rationale and reason tells me to be true?
Or do I follow the path I know deep in my soul is the right one?
 
I’m engaged in a fierce battle between my head and my heart.
And there can only be one winner.

#4 Obsession – Release June 6
 
One week. No names. No expectations.
 
That was our agreement.
 
We were supposed to walk away after our time in Hawaii was over.
 
No matter what.
 
That was before…
Before I learned who she is.
Before I realized how interconnected our lives are.
Before I fell in love.
 
But our love isn’t the stuff fairy tales are made of.
Demons lurk around every corner.
Good doesn’t necessarily prevail over evil.
And the knight in shining armor may not save the day. Not if her murderous ex-husband has anything to do with it.
 
But Julia’s never been the type of girl who needs a knight in shining armor to save the day.
She’s the type of girl who will pick up her own sword and fight for what she believes in.
 
I just hope she’s finally learned to believe in herself.

Review – Cruel Lies by Faith Summers

59967099. sy475

Cruel Lies; Cruel Secrets #1 
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: December 27, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Mafia/Secret Society/Intrigue/Dark/New Adult Romance

Author: Faith Summers 

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Full of suspense, mystery, and tons of angry chemistry (enemy-to-lovers boiling over passion kind of chemistry).

Cruel Lies is a mix of mafia, secret society, intrigue, forbidden love, dark secrets, dark moments, basically it had all my favorites mixed into one story. It’s an attention grabber from the very beginning and this is just first half of the duet.

Willow loses her entire family at a young age, but is burdened with a huge secret that tears apart the one relationship she holds dear, Caspian her best friend and first love. Her life ends up tailspinning and catapulting into unknowns she never saw coming, but to make matters worse, her ex-best friend isn’t done ruining her life.

Caspian is used to living under the rule of unrealistic expectations under his father’s unloving hand, but when his father specifically tells him to stay away from Willow, it’s like dangling the forbidden fruit before his eyes. Caspian may have missed his best friend for years, but when she begins at Raventhorn she becomes his forbidden obsession.

At first Caspian only wants Willow for the forbidden passion, but soon long hidden secrets come to light and the old Caspian he thought he’d buried comes out and he suddenly needs to protect the woman Willow has become.

Cruel Lies has so much mystery, passion, and forbidden darkness at every turn. Yum.

Synopsis:

Cruel Lies, the first in the all-new dark Cruel Secrets Duet from USA Today bestselling author Faith Summers is available now!

He’s my villain, my monster, my forbidden path…
Caspian Ivanov and I come from the same dark world.
One where the Bratva and the secret society reign.
And, he’s the son of their ruthless leader.
“I’ll destroy you.”
That’s the last thing he said to me.
It was on the night of the Reaping.
Hard to believe we were ever best friends.
His vengeance is, however, the price I pay for keeping a secret I shouldn’t have kept.
A secret that ripped our families apart.
It made us forbidden to each other.
That’s when he became the viperous devil.
Breathtakingly beautiful but with a cold black heart.
Like any snake, he wanted to poison me.
When our paths collide at Raventhorn University, I stay away from him.
What I don’t expect is to become his obsession.
Or to be forced to become his wife.
Except, we might not get to say I do.
Because someone wants me dead.

Cruel Lies is the first part of the Cruel Secrets Duet and is NOT standalone.

It is a dark mafia/ secret society college bully romance filled with mystery, suspense, and plenty of sizzling hot steamy scenes.
Please be warned this book is DARK. It contains dubious and other triggering situations that some readers might find offensive or be sensitive to. Please don’t read if any of that bothers you.

Review – Loyalty in the Shadows by Veronica Eden

58410182. sy475

Loyalty in the Shadows; Crowned Crows #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: December 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Secret Society/Grumpy-Sunshine/New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Veronica Eden

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A grumpy/sunshine, mixed with suspense made this dark romance a total page turner!

Isla and Levi were magnetic on the page. Their grumpy/sunshine banter gave laughter at the perfect moments especially among all the dark times. Isla’s sassy vibes not only threw Levi for a loop, but she threw him off kilter because she didn’t respond to his darkness like he thinks she should. It makes their chemistry off the charts and the funny moments really pop.

Continuing the suspense from book one, the Crows continue to look for clues into Rowan’s brother’s death and even more mystery is added as Isla Vonn is added to mix and her kidnapping attempt makes the plot thicken.

Attending the same prep school, Isla grew up with the Crows. Always attracted to the silent man in the shadows, she never suspected that Levi spent so much time in them because he was obsessed with her and once she came under their protection, that obsession grew into something more.

I loved all the interaction with the other Crows and the possibilities into where their stories could go. This book contained a lot of mystery, suspense, and steamy good times and I cannot wait to read more as the other boys to fall for their women and as they unravel more of the dark mystery.

Review – Merciless Kings by Becca Steele and C. Lymari

57310913. sy475

Merciless Kings; Boneyard Kings #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: December 9, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Intrigue/Reverse Harem/Bully/New Adult Romance

Author: Becca Steele and C. Lymari

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The mystery of this story stays throughout the entire book and WOW the cliffhanger at the end, Merciless Kings, is a hot, bully read that is unputdownable!

The Boneyard Kings set their sights on Everly at the start of the school year, something she doesn’t want and didn’t ask for. The reputations of the Kings, bad boys from the wrong side of town, invade her life to the point that she can barely breathe, but for what nefarious purpose?

Saint, Matteo, and Callum are brothers, not by blood, but bonded through tough experiences and the foster system. These Kings play a game of cat and mouse with Everly, herding her towards their own agenda, but each in a different way.

Saint is definitely the easy going, goofier guy, with a touch of the devil inside him. Although there are times he gives off the vibe where Everly shouldn’t be taken in by her laid back persona, but does she listen?

Matteo reminds me of a teakettle right on the verge of exploding. He lives his life like a powder keg one match away from detonating everyone around him. However, Everly is also drawn to the duality that Matteo gives off.

Lastly, we have Callum, the cold, calculated King. He views the world in black and white and there is no room for the grays that Everly may live in. To him she is either a pawn or the queen there is no in between.

I’m truly excited to continue this journey and see how Everly unlocks the Kings secrets, but how they pull out hers as well.

Synopsis:

They say bad things happen in threes.
The first was when I lost my parents.
The second came when I had to leave behind everything I knew to move across the world to live with my only remaining relative.
But what was life for, if not for living? So I kept moving.

Then the third thing happened, just as I was about to begin my junior year at the prestigious Blackstone University.
I caught the eye of not one, not two, but three of the most infamous guys on campus. The three guys from the wrong side of the tracks.
Saint, Mateo, and Callum.
And now that they have me in their sights, I know that there’s nowhere I can hide.
There’s no escape from the Boneyard Kings.

Saint. Mateo. Callum.
Merciless. Vicious. Ruthless.
I don’t know what I’ve done wrong, but they have me in their sights.
There’s nowhere I can run, nowhere I can hide.
No escape from the Boneyard Kings.

Now the three boys had hate in their hearts.
To get what they wanted, they had to play their parts.
These three boys were wise, cunning, and sharp.
Because the streets bowed for no one, unless a merciless king you’d become

Merciless Kings is a dark college enemies to lovers/bully reverse harem romance, and contains mature content. This is book one in the Boneyard Kings series, and cannot be read as a standalone.

Review – The Ritual by Shantel Tessier

58941251

The Ritual 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: November 19, 2021

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

Author: Shantel Tessier

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

THE CHOSEN ONE

I vow. You vow. We vow.

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

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

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

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