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.
The Cruel Secrets Duet is set in the Raventhorn world.

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.

Best Kept Secret; Rochester Trilogy #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: November 16, 2021

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

Author: Skye Warren

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The final book in the Rochester trilogy and it’s full of intrigue and passion.

Emily Rochester is back from the dead and what a tangled web she weaves. Is Emily there for the right reasons? While she says wants Jane’s help in getting her daughter, Paige, is she really there to complete her family by also getting Beau?

Jane has grown up with a life of disappointment. She won’t let Paige down in her time of need, but she also realizes that giving up Beau might be what everyone needs. Jane has grown so strong since the beginning of the trilogy. While she recognizes that she’s not the same girl, she’s also not ready to come between Paige and the best outcome for her future.

Who will Beau choose, his long lost, who he thought was dead love or the new girl who has swooped in and recently stolen his heart? Also….where has Emily been and why?

This trilogy needs to be read in order to make the most sense so please start from the beginning.

It began with hearing voices – just another step on my steady descent into madness. It was inevitable, considering the whole town hated me and I was the loneliest person on the planet.

I didn’t really blame them, I guess. Everyone who got close to me ended up in the hospital. I’d be suspicious of me too.

When the three distinct, alluring voices in my head started to appear before my eyes as three distinct, gorgeous men I really started to question everything I thought I knew.

They called themselves Dreamwalkers and told me they were hunting the monster attacking all the people around me.

They won’t leave me alone.

I’m not sure I want them to.

But am I the monster they’re after? Or are we all in worse danger than I ever could’ve imagined?

Review – Far From Bliss by Lexi Blake

58870267. sy475

Far From Bliss; Nights in Bliss, Colorado, #12 
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: November 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Small Town/Suspense/MFM/Romance

Author: Lexi Blake writing as Sophie Oak

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

All the love, family, fun, and smexy good times that continue to draw me back to Bliss and Lexi Blake books over and over again.

This is the first original Bliss book that Lexi has written in a few years and it was like putting on a cozy, warm sweater, eating comfort food, or reading your favorite book. Yes, it was absolutely perfect.

Lucy and Ty grew up together and naturally had a friendship bond, but neither had ever stepped out of the friendzone with one another until Ty comes to claim her, declaring his love for his clueless, but adorable girl-friend.

Lucy doesn’t exactly take the news well…Ty bumbles everything in his life and he’s sort of like a growing puppy dog who hasn’t grown into his big feet. He’s happy, sunshiny and just charges forward without thinking things through, except when he approaches Michael Novak about being their third in a potential relationship.

Ty also doesn’t miss much and he’s noticed the looks that both Lucy and Michael have been throwing each other over the past year and while that might have spurred Ty to throw his plan in action, he also realizes that he lives in the town of Bliss where throuples are more of the norm than not.

Michael is a broken man, living alone with only his rage keeping him warm. He may be the link to Lucy and Ty’s dysfunctional relationship, but he can’t promise anything permanent, he’s been burned in the worst way possible and he can never offer his heart again, especially when he doesn’t have one.

There are so many moments that made me chuckle and most of them involved Ty just being himself. The same is most certainly said regarding the other men of Bliss when they all get together because they are just clueless without their powerful women, but that is what I love about Lexi’s books, while they revolve around dominant men in the bedroom (which is hot), it’s always the women who have the power when it comes to the matters of the heart, home, and just plain getting things done.

I never fail to fall in love with how these throuples all connect in their own way and Lucy, Ty, and Michael were unique in their relationship, whether it was individually or all together. This was a great addition to the Bliss series.

Synopsis:

Shattered by the past

Michael Novak was a US Marshal with his whole life figured out. Right up until the woman he called partner betrayed him. He’s been hiding in Bliss, CO, trying to pull himself out of the darkness. The only bright light is Lucy Carson. Something about Trio’s favorite waitress calls to him, but he can’t trust his instincts anymore.

Yearning for the future

Lucy has loved Tyler since they were kids, but he never seemed to feel the same way. She worried she would never want a man the way she does Ty, and then Michael grumbled his way into her world. Beyond the broody exterior she sees a burning fire in his eyes, and she is drawn to that flame.

The time is finally right

Ty knows Lucy is the one for him, but Lucy wrote him off romantically long ago. If he could get her to see him in a different light, he knows she would realize that they’re perfect for each other. His obstacle is the town’s reclusive former lawman, Michael. But this is Bliss. A rival can turn into a partner for the right woman. And Lucy is definitely the right woman.

Ty approaches Michael with a plan to get Lucy between them. A bargain is made, and Lucy is their target. But Lucy is already in much more dangerous crosshairs. Murder has come to Bliss, and Lucy is at the center of the investigation.

Review – Dark Reign by Amelia Wilde

58565601. sy475

Dark Reign; The Collector #1 
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: November 9, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A suspenseful, slow burn with a bubbling, dark Morelli undertone.

I love the rich texture Amelia give her books and reading this series is like eating a gourmet meal. Tuck your napkin in your shirt and get ready to gorge on Daphne and Emerson.

This book, perhaps because Daphne is different than her siblings, running on the side of happy and innocent, would be different if you didn’t know better, but she is also a Morelli at heart. Her artwork spills out all of the darkness she tries to hide inside and Emerson LeBlanc is drawn to her the moment he meets her. That darkness Daphne leaves on the canvas, Emerson recognizes it and he desires it. However, he not only wants to collect her art, but the woman herself.

Emerson is elusive and dark and very stalkerish, especially when it comes to Daphne. He fits right in with the Constantines and Morellis in this elite world of billionaire men. He knows what he wants, but he is also patient and like a lion stalking his prey, he waits to make his move. Every move on the chess board only intrigues Daphne more. Even her brothers won’t be able to lock her up when The Collector comes to collect her.

Dark Reign ends on a cliffhanger and I can hardly wait to return to find out how their story ends.

Synopsis:

Wealthy. Reclusive. Dangerous. Emerson LeBlanc doesn’t enter society much. He only ventures out in pursuit of new art for his collection. It starts with a haunting painting. Then he meets the artist…

Innocent Daphne Morelli is more exquisite than anything he’s ever seen. He becomes obsessed with her. It doesn’t matter that she’s a living, breathing person with her own hopes and dreams.

​​​​​​​She’ll be the perfect addition to his collection.

Blog Tour – Apathy by L.K. Reid

 Release Date: September 20

There were sicknesses in this world even holy water couldn’t wash away.

 

In vicious nights, beautiful monsters lay.
Some with faces known, some ready to play.
Unsure of a friend, unsure of a foe,
Be certain of nothing you think you know,

Because what once enters Winworth, never leaves again.

Skylar Blackwood thought she knew what monsters looked like.
But in Winworth, nothing is what it seems.

Not the arrival of a stranger with eyes that see too much, and lips that taste like danger.
Not the young women who begin disappearing in the night.
And certainly not the people in the sleepy town she grew up in that begin to turn on one another.

One truth is undeniable, something wicked is loose in Winworth.
No one is safe, and trusting the wrong person could cost Skylar everything.

Trapped between the two worlds as secrets start to unravel, what little sanity Skylar has left threatens to shatter, leaving her with more questions than answers.
 
Turns out, real monsters are never what they seem.
APATHY is the first book in Secrets of Winworth series, dealing with dark themes that might not be suitable for all readers. It is recommended only for readers above the age of 18.

Meet L.K. Reid

Hi there. My name is Leila but I am writing under my pen name L.K. Reid.

I write dark romance, the characters that are depraved, lost, a little bit misunderstood and most of my books are touching subjects of mental health in one way or another. 

 

While Ricochet is the first book I will release, I have actually been writing since Primary School, but that little thing called self-doubt always kept me away from truly pursuing my dreams. 

Recently I realized that if I don’t chase my dreams, I will never do everything I want to do. Sixty years from now I would regret all the things I was too afraid to do, so I did it. I allowed myself to dream and put myself out there. I want to show you these worlds swirling inside my head and these characters whose stories have to be told. 

I am a restless person. I can’t stay in the same place for a very long time so I like to move. I love to explore new places, meet new people, learn about new cultures, you know, the usual. My mom used to tell me that I live inside my head, and that’s true. I really do. While I do love being surrounded with other people I also love to be alone. I think that until we truly know ourselves and our thoughts we could never be truly happy. 

Truth to be told, I am still figuring out this whole adult “thingy”, but I think that most of us are pretty much lost in that world. Slow walkers are the bane of my existence, and one of my biggest pet peeves is people not responding on their messages – it really drives me crazy. 

I wanted to be an archeologist, but we can see that that definitely didn’t work out. My small obsession with Greek, Egyptian, Nordic and Slavic Mythology was one of the driving forces behind many stories I wrote as a teenager, and I am pretty sure that one day I will end up writing a book with those themes. 

If I could I would set Halloween as a Public Holiday. Spooky season, Autumn, that’s my jam. Scary movies go hand-in-hand with that I would say, and my favorite ones are Halloween and Scream – all of them. Music was always a big part of my life as well, and I can’t imagine a day where I don’t listen to it for at least a little bit. Everything I ever wrote was done while listening to music, and if it wasn’t for music, I would most probably be completely lost.

If I could I would set Halloween as a Public Holiday. Spooky season, Autumn, that’s my jam. Scary movies go hand-in-hand with that I would say, and my favorite ones are Halloween and Scream – all of them. Music was always a big part of my life as well, and I can’t imagine a day where I don’t listen to it for at least a little bit. Everything I ever wrote was done while listening to music, and if it wasn’t for music, I would most probably be completely lost.

Review – Taken Bride by Alta Hensley

57546459. sy475

Taken Bride; Secret Bride #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: September 3, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Suspense/Dark Romance

Author: Alta Hensley

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Wrapping up a forever ending to this secret bride series and their forever after was absolutely perfect.

When we last left Ember and Christopher it was tumultuous and frankly I wanted to push Christopher’s mother down a flight of stairs. At the beginning of Taken Bride I still felt the same about his mom and that will never change, but the story really takes off as it centers around how Christopher will get Ember back and how the couple will survive once they reunite. Truly exciting, on the edge of your seat stuff.

Papa Rich and Scarecrow have returned for Ember and emotions are high as the poor girl returns to their brainwashed clutches. This time however, it’s not just Ember’s life on the line, but Scarecrow has other incentives waiting in his home to keep her from running. Twists that I did not see coming.

Christopher is furious with his mother when he discovers Ember is missing, but he does everything to track her down and will stop at nothing to get his wife back. If their intense time together has taught him anything it’s that Ember is the most important thing in his life and he’ll do anything to keep her by his side.

The deeply, intense love that these two feel for one another is truly what drives this overall trilogy and I love how passionate and expressive Ember and Christopher are for each other. The experiences they’ve been through always at the forefront, never letting them forget how precious life and their love is for each other.

This is the last book in the secret bride trilogy and the books need to be read in order in order to make sense and be enjoyed. It’s been an intense and twisted ride, but definitely worth the read.

Synopsis:

Secrets must be kept.
Vows never broken.
Till death do us part…

Unless everything changes.
Captive in one life…
Kept in another…
Taken to now be the wife I am forced to be.

I’m hidden away to face a dark reality only a few can survive.
But I have a purpose now. I can be the good wife I strive to be.
But he still wants me.
He will hunt me down.
He will find me and take back what was stolen.
I will be his wife if he has to fight until the death to make it happen.

Review – The Spy by Sophie Lark

56569856. sy475

The Spy; Kingmakers #4 
(#4 within a series)

Publication Date: July 28, 2021

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Suspense-Intrigue/Mafia Romance

Author: Sophie Lark

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Constant mind explosions. All. Over. The. Place. 🤯 Wow, wow, and more wow!!!

The past and present all wove together to tell a tale that was complete perfection. Although, I feel like I need to go back and re-read each book in the Kingmaker series because I feel like I missed clues or easter eggs that all led up to this brilliant conclusion. Again, total mind blown moments throughout the entire book.

I was captivated and I’ve been dying to know who the spy was leading up to this book, but like Sophie…I won’t let the cat out of the bag either.

We return to Kingmakers with new freshman, the classes (I still love the entire concept behind mafia courses) and the potential of Leo Gallo being the four time captain-champion of the school’s games. Everything is familiar and yet as mysteries slowly unraveled (which brought me immense glee) and all of the truth bombs began to explode the story puzzle began to take shape. The ending was coming, but it was also magnificent.

Probably one of the best things I have loved about this series is how Sophie wove all secondary characters throughout each book to the point that each person was perfectly placed and became just as important to the storyline as the main characters.  Friendship and loyalty, something you wouldn’t expect perhaps from mafia students, but it runs deep through these books and the love they have for each other is a bond that became unbreakable.

While I’m sad to see this series come to an end, it truly had the perfect ending and everything was tied up.

Synopsis:

I’ve waited three long years for this…
Hiding. Lying. Spying.
Waiting like a spider for her to wander into my web…
Now she’s here, and I have to get even closer to her. I’ll help her. Befriend her. Seduce her, even.
The only thing I can’t do is fall in love with her.
Her father took everything from me: my money, my family, my life.
He has to pay for what he’s done. And she’s the only thing that can hurt him…
Mafia families from around the world send their children to Kingmakers Academy to learn the skills of criminal enterprise.

Under the rules of Sanctuary, students are forbidden to fight or kill. But rivalries are high, tensions inflamed, and forbidden love arises in the most unlikely places…

Welcome to Kingmakers

Review – Black Thorns by Rina Kent

57729662. sy475

Black Thorns; Thorns Duet #2 
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: July 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Rina Kent pushes dark boundaries I didn’t know I wanted or liked, but she makes me throw out my grabby hands and BEG for more. Black Thorns blew away everything I anticipated and left me once again I craving more of her dark words.

Black Thorns picks up right where we left Sebastian and Naomi. The first quarter of this book is brutally agonizing and I was gripping onto the edge of my seat while trying to turn pages fast enough to find out what happens.

Everything in this book is a blood pumping whirlwind! Once I started I couldn’t read it fast enough.

The first part of the duet was so steamy and taboo, well…you haven’t seen anything yet. Sebastian and Naomi are off the charts in this second half. Their story isn’t easy or pretty, but know that it is always consensual. Their darkness has always called to one another and at every point in their lives, that never waivers. Sebastian and Naomi are meant to be, no matter who or what stands in the way. The Beast will always get his Prey.

Also, keep a close eye on other players who appear in this book as Rina is fantastic at her layers upon layers in storytelling and keep in mind that she does mention triggers, if Rina’s books aren’t for you then don’t swim in the deep end.

Synopsis:

A lie turned into a nightmare.

She broke my heart.
Broke me.
Broke us.
Only one thing could mend the gaping wound she left behind.
Her.
Naomi.
All mine for the taking.
All mine for owning.
All mine.

Black Thorns is a dark romance book that contains dubious situations some readers might find offensive and/or triggering.

This book is part of a duet and is not standalone.

Review – Kept Bride by Alta Hensley

57546460. sy475

Kept Bride; Secret Bride #2 
(#2 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: July 6, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Dark/Suspense/Psychological Romance

Author: Alta Hensley

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

This trilogy is so original, unlike anything I’ve ever read. It’s mind-bending, a psychological twister that is a total page turner.

Kept Bride picks up right where Captive Bride left off. This book cannot be read as a standalone. Where Christopher was the trapped prisoner in the first book and Ember, although was kidnapped years ago, was there to help sooth and help calm Christopher. This time around as they have fled captivity from the madman who forced them into marriage, Christopher and Ember are now living in Christopher’s world where their positions have shifted. They may appear free, but instead they have exchanged one cage for another. Is love enough to save them from the outside forces that live in Christopher’s world?

Alta Hensley has crafted a physiological twister that will keep you guessing who is there to help this couple and who is there to push them back in their gilded cage. It is such a fast paced ride, completely page turning and impossible to put down.

Synopsis:

My history is forbidden.
My story, dark and twisted.
My future decided.

I know I don’t belong in this decadent world—his world.
Money, power, and dark secrets surround me now.
I submit to it all to be his perfect obedient wife.

They stalk my every move, watching me, judging me.
I’m in the same prison just with different guards.
But all I care about is him.
His eyes, his touch, his hold over me.
I’m forever his kept bride, even though they all try to steal me away.

Kept Bride is part of a trilogy and should not be read as a standalone:

Strict Confidence; Rochester Trilogy #2
(#2 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: June 15, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Forbidden/Boss-Employee/Age-Gap/Suspense Romance

Author: Skye Warren

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Emotions are high, feelings are tense, and suspicions are abound in the second book of this suspenseful trilogy.

We pick right up after the fire that destroyed Coach House and untangling the mystery of what happened the night Beau, Jane, and Paige almost died. Who or what possibly started the fire? Could someone be after Beau for nefarious reasons or could it be Jane that brought danger to the Rochester doorstep?There seem to be more questions than answers as the days pass, but on top of solving the case keeping Paige emotionally stable is both of their top priorities. She’s already lost both of her parents and now her home and everything she ever knew is destroyed on top of what she already lost. How much else can a little girl suffer? These are the moments that will break you in two.

Added to this already tumultuous storyline, Jane and Beau also dance around their feelings once again. Beau is torn between giving in, when he feels his feelings might have caused the danger to begin with and Jane struggles to come to terms with feeling like the help and being Beau’s lover now that Beau wants to put the breaks on. Uncertainty is written all over what they share which doesn’t help in facing a future together. How do you put the lid on pandora’s box when everything is already pouring out of it? Their feelings are raw and hurtful, but make the story that much better.

What I love best is the mystery surrounding this story, the unknown of exactly who the bad guy could be. I also love the tenacity of Paige and how resilient she is given everything she has gone through, but I’m always a sucker for children.

With a killer still on the loose, I’m excited to see how everything plays out and how it all comes together. What’s going to happen? Will everyone survive?

Synopsis:

Review – The Silencer by RC Boldt

55310216. sy475

The Silencer 
(A standalone)

Publication Date: May 18, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Intrigue/Romantic Thriller

Author: RC Boldt

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A keep you on the edge of your seat romantic thriller where justice and vengeance walk a fine line.

RC Boldt writes a tale of redemption that is full of twists and turns, but ultimately leads to the question of can a good man who finds justice love a broken woman who seeks vengeance?

The Silencer is very well written, and while it centers around a delicate subject matter, it focuses more on tracking down horrible people who committed those acts instead of the act itself. For me personally, it really helped keep this book on a suspenseful, thriller level vs. in a dark, disturbing trope.

Kennedy is a forensics anthropologist who specializes in helping law enforcement serve justice to those who normally don’t have a voice. Off the record she serves up vigilante justice to those who might escape through the penal system.

While Kennedy is used to working alone, on a sensitive case in Washington DC she is assigned a partner, Landon Lattimer, an agent from the FBI who has his own assignment to keep a close eye on Kennedy and make sure this case is handled appropriately.

While these two work towards the same goal, they do so through very different means. As they get closer personally Kennedy has a hard time knowing she will have to walk away because how can a man who works for justice ever be with a vigilante?

Synopsis:

USA Today bestselling author RC Boldt brings us an unforgettable tale of betrayal, vengeance, and redemption in her new romantic thriller, THE SILENCER…

No one wants to admit that sometimes only evil can extinguish other evil.

Each time I drain the life from their bodies, I inch closer to purging my past.

Then a by-the-book FBI agent—one as astute as he is handsome—threatens my plans…and what’s left of my heart.

He doesn’t believe there are exceptions to breaking the law. That’s where we differ.

They once silenced me and countless others, but now I’ve reversed our roles.

Because, this time, it’s my turn to be the silencer.

————————————————————
**The Silencer is a dark and gritty romantic suspense that deals with sensitive topics which may not be suitable for all readers.

–Kylie Scott, New York Times bestseller

The Insiders, an all-new not-to-be-missed, intense and emotional romance from New York Times bestselling author Tijan, is available now!

Bailey is as normal as could be, with a genius IQ and a photographic memory. But still, normal for her. Then, things happen — a guy breaks into her house in the middle of the night to take her hostage. She learns her father is billionaire tech genius Peter Francis, the same guy she’s idolized all her life. She finds all this out when she meets dark, mysterious, and electrifying Kashton Colello. He’s also an associate of her father’s, and he gives Bailey two choices—go with him and meet her father or survive on her own because those kidnappers are going to try again.

It’s a no-brainer.

After this, three things become clear for Bailey:

1. She has to live at her father’s sprawling estate, complete with bodyguards and the best security that money can buy.

2. She’s no longer an only child. She has three siblings and has no idea what to do with them and vice versa.

3. She is being guarded by Kash himself. Personally guarded. And there is a lot of guarding going on there and some of it is going to drive her crazy.

A complete outsider in a world of wealth and decadence, Bailey has to find her way within a family that has more secrets than she could have imagined. One of these secrets could be deadly…
