Blog Tour – Silk Malice by Eve Dangerfield

Silk Malice by Eve Dangerfield is now live!

Once upon a time I was left with nothing. Betrayed by my stepmother and stolen by my ex-fiancé. Now I’m battered but intact, just like my prized innocence.

My heart tells me I don’t want to belong to one man. I belong to four.

But the criminals I love are proud. Too proud.

Their brotherhood is in tatters.

They fight for me. And they possess me, even as the enemies close in. Even as the foundation of our twisted family crumbles. Even as the dark legacy threatens to consume us all.

Book two in the SNOW WHITE trilogy. This is a scorching romance between a woman and four beautifully dangerous men in which she never has to choose.

Read Kay’s Review: Silk Malice

Meet Eve

Eve Dangerfield has loved romance novels ever since she first swiped her grandmother’s paperbacks. Now she writes her own stories about complicated women and gorgeous-but-slightly-tortured men. Her work has been described as ‘genre-defying,’ ‘insanely hot’ and ‘the defibrillator contemporary romance needs right now’…and not just by herself or those who might need bone marrow…OTHER PEOPLE! She lives in Melbourne with her boy and a bunch of semi-dead plants. She can generally be found making a mess.

Review – Silk Malice by Eve Dangerfield

Silk Malice; Snow White #2
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: January 31, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Midnight Dynasty/Dark/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Eve Dangerfield

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
This is book two in the dark, twisted Snow White trilogy and needs to be read in order. Silk Malice picks up in steam and progresses in character development for every single person.

While January shed a ton of her shyness throughout this story, it was actually Doc who shocked me the most and I loved watching him change from beginning to end. He was still his dominating, dirty self, but as his feelings grew stronger for January, his threats to her just shifted and it was great. We don’t get a ton of time with Adriano, since he was shot at the end of book one, but the giant of a man is there and very much a part of January’s life. Bobby probably changed the least, but he was always all in when it came to January and that was actually a comfort when it came to this over the top, dominating gang. His sweetness was needed when January needed it the most and it offset Doc’s crudeness or Eli’s harsh strictness.

Aside from the growing and shifting of how the relationship between all of five of them will work, the main focus is how to release January from her disgusting fiancé, Mr. Parker. He’s vile and I’m happy that Velvet House is there to help January escape his clutches.

This is book two and their story will conclude in the final book, Lace Vengeance.

Review – Blood of My Monster by Rina Kent

Blood of My Monster (Monster Trilogy, #1)

Blood of My Monster; Monster Trilogy #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: January 26, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Mafia/Dark/Forbidden Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Wow! Explosive! Addictive! Couldn’t put it down once I began!

Rina Kent is queen for a reason and her monsters are deliciously supreme!!

There is nothing I love better than digging into the backstory of one of Rina’s characters. The way she weaves her plot and stitches in every sinful description or small tidbit, I completely gobble it all up like the starving reader I am. Her worlds are rich and I love how she winds them together just enough to find easter eggs, but every new couple is unique and completely stands on their own. I never fail to fall deeply in love with each new book, making a new favorite couple every single time.

Blood of my Monster is the beginning of Kirill and Sasha’s story. A mix between Mulan and Anastasia, Sasha’s story was emotional, raw, and gripping. Her background is shrouded in mystery and yet from what we come to know she is one of the most determined and strong women Rina has ever written. Her identity needs to stay hidden and while Kirill doesn’t know why, he keeps her secret as a keeper of secrets himself.

While meeting Kirill through other’s eyes in the past I wasn’t sure what to think of him, but now that I’ve gotten the chance to know him I love the monster that hides behind his glasses. Kirill, the captain in the army is strategic and passionate about his men. Kirill, a leader within the Bratva is strategic and looking to rule the world.

GAH!! This story is phenomenal and just beginning!!

Synopsis:
From the USA Today bestselling author Rina Kent comes a new dark mafia romance.

I’m out for revenge. He’s out to rule the world.
Kirill and I are as different as day and night.
We shouldn’t have been in the same frame or universe.
But we meet under the strangest circumstances.
He’s my superior in the military and the man who’ll introduce me to carnage.
His charm and exterior perfection shouldn’t have tempted me.
Behind the smokescreen lurks a manipulative emotionless monster.
And that monster might find out all my secrets, including the reason why I’m pretending to be a man.
He might also lure me to the point of no return.

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

Coercion (Controlling Interest, #3)

Coercion; Controlling Interest #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: January 24, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Midnight Dynasty/Trilogy/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Coercion picks right up where we left Will and Bristol after book two with her twin siblings, Mia and Ben, missing.

Coercion is full of outside emotional tension that only seems to solidify the foundation of who Will and Bristol have become together and also build on what a future looks like for them going forward. It’s really a great finish to their story.

There were so many great moments that touched my heart in this book, it’s really hard to pick just one. Touching on just a few…When Will talks Mia through a panic attack…be still my heart. The inside view Will has as he opens up his heart to Mia about how his brother Emerson experiences them requires tissues. Lots of tissues. Then when Emerson comforts Mia…and for anyone who has read his trilogy, this is not his area of expertise, so once again…be still my heart. Lord I could go on and on because this is a wonderful and emotional book.

Now I can’t wait for Sin’s story and what will he bring to the Leblanc fold. I can hardly wait.

Synopsis:
There’s a fight to the death… and a fight for his heart.

Review – To Reject a Mate by Poppy Ireland

To Reject a Mate: A Fated Mates Shifter Romance (Redwood University, #1)

To Reject a Mate; Redwood University #1
(#1 within a series)

Publication Date: February 2, 2023

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Paranormal/Fated Mates/Shifter Romance

Author: Poppy Ireland

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A great beginning to a new fantastical world! This trilogy brings all the feels and made my reading soul giddy with all of the paranormal factions that pop up. I am stuffed full with how freakishly fantastic this supernatural world is!!!

Redwood University is mixed with all the new adult hormones and finding yourself that college typically brings, along with the challenges that mixing vamps, shifters, witches, and humans might also bring. For instance; it’s a stew of hormonally charged young adults just trying to earn a degree, but with all the challenges of fitting in to sorortity life…oh by the way they are sectioned off by supernatural power, which none of the humans know about. OR, Do you actually like that guy or is it a spell? Is that guy attractive or could a vamp possibly enthralled you? Why are you constantly giving directions into town? LOL, the creation of this world is brilliant and I loved everything about it.

Nicole didn’t really want to attend Redwood, but her father got a job there which meant free tuition. That’s hard to pass up. However, she was going to make the most of it, until things went downhill…like gaining the attention of one of the most popular guy on campus. That wasn’t her intent, she wasn’t at school to date, but Alexei wouldn’t seem to stay away. He couldn’t help himself, Nicole was his mate, his human mate. He didn’t want the bond, but the fates chose her, but until he could figure it out, he had to stay away…somehow.

This book was filled with angst, fun – oh my goodness the secondary characters are hilarious, suspense, and an element of mystery. For a new duo of writers, this book is just brilliant, a truly great beginning and I can’t wait to return for more.

Synopsis:

Welcome to Redwood University, where the creatures that go bump in the night really do exist… and they’re hiding in plain sight.

Attending a small college in the middle of nowhere was never my plan, but when I was offered free tuition and the promise of an excellent education, that plan changed.

It would’ve been nice to know I would be one of the only humans on campus.

It’d be even better if a certain bossy shifter didn’t claim me as his fated mate.

Alexei is arrogant, acrimonious, and the worst A-word of them all: an alpha.

But I can’t deny the way my body responds to him. No matter how many warning flags are waving around in my head, we gravitate toward one another. It’s primal. Passionate.

Painful.

Because regardless of what the fates think, or the supposed destiny we share… Alexei and I could never be.

So, if Alexei won’t reject our bond… I’ll have to do it for him.

*To Reject a Mate is the first book in the Redwood University Trilogy. It cannot be read as a standalone and ends in a cliffhanger. If possessive heroes, who occasionally turn into wolves, and sassy, headstrong heroines are your jam, you’ve come to the right place. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride into this exciting new paranormal world.

Publication Date: January 22, 2023

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Forbidden/Reverse Harem/Royal/Arranged Marriage Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
ALL THE STARS!!! I already want more because I can’t stop thinking about every little nugget in this book. I was swept away and totally lost while reading. I had no idea what time or practically what day it was when I had to pull my head back out of the book. Yes, I was that completely lost within the pages. Saying I loved it doesn’t seem worthy enough.

I’ve been dying to return to the Kingdom of Aldrich after I read the prequel and No Such King broke my expectations out of the water. Lady Christine Abernathy was sent away at the end of the prequel to protect her life, but now that the King is dead she’s been summoned back. However, she had no idea what the former Queen had in mind when she stepped back into Aldrich or she might never have returned. There is darkness in the halls and evil reminders she’d rather never think of again, but when she’s told she will marry Prince Augustus, the new King, Christine has little choice but to stay. I wasn’t sure whether to like Queen Isabella or hate her, perhaps a little of both.

Christine is quite different than when she left years ago and I loved how each new part of her molded to the three different men in her life. While the girl of the past intrigued August, Atticus, and Leo, the woman she is now knocks each of them to their knees and they honestly are thrown by it. Christine may have loved August and been his best friend when they were young, but they have both changed in the years she’s been gone. Christine is a phoenix and they were expecting a dove. It’s great.

August has great character growth and I love that he steps into the role he was born into, but he wishes that his fiancée was a sweet quiet girl, the girl from his youth…sorry, August, that girl is dead. The joyful girl that Christine once was now has darkness flowing through her veins and Atticus sees the woman behind the royal clothes. Everytime August gets hit with a new truth I could just imagine his huge anime eyes…and speaking of huge things on August….that opening…whew!!

Atticus is the devil’s advocate and I loved all of his wiley ways. Christine has a pull towards him for sure, but she also has a duty to uphold and I think she realizes that giving into Atticus will unleash all of her inner demons. Sort of a Hades and Persephone vibe I felt from them, truly delicious. I’m looking forward to getting even more of him and what he will bring to this story, I can’t wait.

Then there is her shadow, Leo. The man who seems to push her away at every turn, but also has a savior’s complex. Christine dreams of his strong arms the night her life changed, but a normal life with him is impossible, especially now that she lives in the light. Their push and pull is very angsty, but also wonderful to witness and I can’t wait for more.

This is not a reverse harem where there is an alpha among the men. This isn’t even a story where they all get along, it’s a story of angst, murder, and second chances. Where the princess doesn’t wait in the tower to be rescued, but instead she becomes the darkness and learns to save herself. No Such King is just the beginning and I’m salivating to return to the world once again.

Synopsis:
A puppet, a prince, and a playboy. One arranged marriage. Three men I must keep at arm’s length.

Atticus Dupont has been watching me from a distance, controlling my life like he controls the seedy criminal underground. He longs to own my mind, body, and soul.

Leo Winthrop is willing to do whatever it takes to protect me from the horrors of this castle, even if it means being cruel and pushing me away.

and Prince Augustus? He’s a reluctant royal that would rather sleep his way through court than be forced into an arranged marriage with me.

I fled the kingdom four years ago, planning to never return.

About To Reject A Mate

Welcome to Redwood University, where the creatures that go bump in the night really do exist… and they’re hiding in plain sight.

Attending a small college in the middle of nowhere was never my plan, but when I was offered free tuition and the promise of an excellent education, that plan changed.

It would’ve been nice to know I would be one of the only humans on campus.

It’d be even better if a certain bossy shifter didn’t claim me as his fated mate.

Alexei is arrogant, acrimonious, and the worst A-word of them all: an alpha.

But I can’t deny the way my body responds to him. No matter how many warning flags are waving around in my head, we gravitate toward one another. It’s primal. Passionate.

Painful.

Because regardless of what the fates think, or the supposed destiny we share… Alexei and I could never be.

So, if Alexei won’t reject our bond… I’ll have to do it for him.

*To Reject a Mate is the first book in the Redwood University Trilogy. It cannot be read as a standalone and ends in a cliffhanger. If possessive heroes, who occasionally turn into wolves, and sassy, headstrong heroines are your jam, you’ve come to the right place. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride into this exciting new paranormal world.

Review – Corrupt Union by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Union; Knights Ridge Empire #15
(#3 within a trilogy, #15 within a series)

Publication Date: December 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Enemies-to-Lovers/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Nico and Bri!! GAH!! What a rollercoaster of a ride with a total rush of emotions!! Tracy never fails to bring her couples together in the most spectacular way and WOW! did Nico and Bri have a high stakes finish to their story!! I couldn’t tear my eyes from the pages!

From start to finish, I’m talking – beginning of the trilogy to the very end, Nico really grew into one fine man. I am not talking about only falling for the love of his life, but also losing his father and stepping up within the organization that opened his eyes to a much wiser Nico, because seriously…wiser Nico is fffiiiiirrrrreeeee!!

Even though we could all see these two ending up together, their kicking and clawing against it only held off the inevitable, but what a fight it was because it was super hot to watch…yum. However, there was more to them then just all they nakey times. Nico and Bri found something deeper than they ever imagined from that first night spent together and I loved each emotional connection they made in this last book. It hit all of the feels.

Bri goes through the wringer in this last book and she goes through growing pains as she comes out the other side of…well everything. Bri and Nico grow closer with their turmoil, through their pain and within their relationship, and it’s a beautiful thing to witness.

I’m pretty sure I say this with every trilogy, but this trilogy was one of my fav’s. The entire plot was intense and it’s all coming to a close as we are down to the last man standing. I can hardly wait for it.

Synopsis:

I found everything I didn’t know I needed.
Accepted forgiveness I didn’t deserve.

She fought for us.
Killed for us.
She was one of us.
And there was no way I was letting her go… again.

But I’m not the only one with wicked intentions for my siren. With her missing, we turn our blame to an obvious enemy. But our path of destruction could be leading us right into another trap.

We’ve been so consumed trying to win this war, that we’re losing the battle. We’ve been oblivious to what’s right in front of us.

Those kind of mistakes could destroy us. If we let them.

Individually, we’re strong.
But together, we’re invincible.
And we’re about to show the world just what we’re capable of.

“I want you to be with me. I miss my friend, my love, my mate.”
Something flickered in Phoenix’s eyes, and I thought I might have cut through. Then the shutters went down. “I’m not who you think I am. I don’t deserve to hear your laugh, to inhale your scent, to touch your skin.”
Emotion warred within me. Grief and rage. But it was rage that won out. I gave him a hard shove. “I’m the one who gets to decide who’s worthy of me. And I choose you every time.”

New Double Release – Corrupt Knight and Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

 Release Date: December 8

The night we met, she was just another one-night stand. 

We were never meant to see each other again, and my best friend certainly wasn’t supposed to go and fall in love with her best friend. 

 

Collateral damage… she’s already broken my biggest rule when we hooked up for a second, third, fourth, and maybe a few more times. 

 

She’s everywhere I turn. I can’t escape her or the things she makes me feel. 

 

Thanks to my best friend wanting to do anything to make his girl happy, she’s the newest teacher at Knight’s Ridge College. 

 

If I needed to stay away before, now I have no choice. Not only is she an obsession I don’t need… she’s forbidden. 

 

But I’ve never been as good at following the rules, so much as breaking them. I need to be careful before she gets too close to break me. 

 

The consuming darkness inside threatens to take over following my father’s death, and I find myself craving her light even more than ever. 

 

The only problem is, I don’t want her to rescue me. I want to drag her down… corrupt her. 

We’re a match made in hell that first night we met, so why stop now when playing with fire is so much fun.

Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

I learned from a very young age that the only person I could count on was myself.

I had a good thing going, until he crashed his way into my life… and heart, and wrecked them both.
Nico Cirillo.
The bad boy mafia prince and the one man who’s ever left me craving more. Not that I’ll admit that.
And now, he’s not only a mistake I’ve made time and time again, he’s everywhere I turn.

Doing everything in his power to screw up my life, tarnish my reputation, and corrupt the only dream I’ve ever had.
But while I’m pushing as hard as I can to keep him away, his reckless decisions and hot-headed behaviour have forced him to reconsider.
His U-turn is enough to give me whiplash, but it’s nowhere near enough for me to lower my walls and let him in.
To give him a chance he doesn’t deserve.
It’s going to take more than a bit of grovelling after all the ways he’s hurt me, even if it is on his knees.

Review – Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Princess; Corrupt Trilogy #2, Knight’s Ridge #14
(#2 within a trilogy, #14 within a series)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Forbidden/Dark/Mafia/Opposites Attract Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Corrupt Princess picks up right where Corrupt Knight left us with a big OMG!! The toxic relationship between Nico and Brianna built to a boiling a point and we were left wondering if Nico was set out to not only destroy his future but Brianna’s as well while he was spiraling on his destructive path.

This book was very emotional. A big shift from toxic masculinity where men shove everything deep down inside and ignore the problem, but a look at actual healing. I have to say I loved it!! Not to say that this wasn’t still a dark, mafia because it very much was, but Nico’s grief was weighing heavy on his shoulders and without some major changes he was going to self destruct and take out anyone around him. That wasn’t healthy and I’m glad it wasn’t brushed aside.

What I also loved about this book, probably more than I have than any of the other second books in the trilogies of this series, was witnessing the cohesiveness of the group as a whole and how the men and women all work together. There is a reason why each couple has been attracted to each other, but as a girl group they all fit, and as guys they all work together and it all clicks in this book more than ever. The aspect of the “found family” really stands out and I love it!!

We are left with another big cliffhanger as this is the second book in the trilogy, but the third book is coming soon so we won’t have to wait long, but that means I can hardly wait to find out what happens.

Review – Corrupt Knight by Tracy Lorraine

Corrupt Knight; Corrupt Trilogy #1, Knights Ridge #13
(#1 within a trilogy, #13 within a series)

Publication Date: December 8, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Forbidden/Opposites Attract/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A total page-turner, with a forbidden aspect, in this enemies-to-lovers story.

Nico is drowning in his grief. He’s hurting and lashing out at everyone he loves and turning to destructive means to numb his pain after losing his father. Within that destructive path is Brianna, the one woman whom he can’t seem to stay away from, but he also treats like dirt. Is it his fault that she comes back for more every single time? While his friends have tried everything to bring Nico back from the darkness, they resort to one last measure and reach out to Brianna to ask for help.

While Brianna has a huge heart and wants to help Nico, her best friend-Jody-is also immersed in this dark world and escaping Nico and his path to self destruction is practically impossible, no matter how much she’d love to walk away. Seeing Nico slipping further into darkness she just can’t say no, but when she lands a job at Knight’s Ridge College and becomes Nico’s teacher she knows she should step away, but once again, getting pulled into his orbit…she has a hard time saying no.

The back and forth, push and pull from these two made my pulse race, especially knowing Brianna’s huge heart. This is book one in a trilogy and ends on a big cliffhanger which will pick up in Corrupt Princess.

Review – Twisted Secrets by Rachel Leigh

Twisted Secrets; Bastards of Boulder Cove #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 30, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Antihero/Suspense/New Adult/Dark/Bully/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Rachel Leigh

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
There were so many secrets that unraveled, one after another, leading right up to a twisted ending!

Twisted Secrets really was the perfect title for this perfectly twisted finale. Not only were there multiple secrets revealed, but there was also twisted up feelings, twisted up friendships, suspense and mayhem was also twisted up in this gloriously page turning finale. Everything was brilliantly tied up and I was spectacularly happy with twisted up ending.

Whew…I wonder if I can fit the words; twists and secrets, a few more times in this review??

As for Scar and her three men…well, I’ll leave with this…they go through a lot in this final book. Neo doesn’t make anything easy on anyone, but as we’ve come to know, that’s just Neo. However, the darker the antihero, the deeper we all seem to fall, so Neo gives quite a ride to say the least. As for Crew and Jagger, they get their moments too, because this wouldn’t be a finale if they remained a silent doormat.

Twisted Secrets is twisted, there are a lot of turns and secrets that I never saw coming, and this last book is stuffed full of emotions, which I don’t want to say threw me, but it was another twist.

This entire trilogy was fantastic from beginning to end. I loved diving into this dark, depraved world and would totally recommend to anyone who loves reading morally gray characters.

Synopsis:

The Lawless have been many things:

My friends,

My enemies,

And now my lovers.

All but one…

Neo Saint—my villain dressed in leather with the body of a god and a heart made of stone.

He blames me for his misfortunes.

Wants me to feel his pain.

It’s time he learns I’m not who he thinks I am.

Someone is out there,

opening old wounds and creating new scars.

It won’t be easy bringing these twisted secrets to light,

but it’s the only chance we have of freedom before the darkness consumes us all.

The games might not be over,

but I’m no longer playing alone.

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

Review – Phase of Mate by Coralee June

Phase of Mate; Phase Mountain Pack #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: November 10, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Shifter/Paranormal/Supernatural Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Phase of Mate is the final book in the gripping, shifter series from Coralee June. It held my attention from cover to cover with several new surprises, action, and all the emotional feels.

Halle has had quite the journey from the very beginning of this trilogy until the very end. She began a girl in the shadows, living under her sister’s perfect shadow, but when her sister is murdered right before her eyes Halle’s entire life changes, making her a prodigy, then a shifter, an alpha, a mate, and more. A life she never saw when she was living in the shadows, but one that with Theo by her side she would never give up.

In this final book, Halle steps into the all of the roles she has been amassing along the way and I know I couldn’t be prouder of the woman she blossoms into. I know it seems like a strange sentence to say, but I love a strong woman character, especially one that has huge character growth and finds her true worth.

Phase of Mate culminates everything Halle has been through and it is also full trials and tribulations testing not only Halle, but also everyone close in her life. Theo is the perfect mate for her and I couldn’t adore him more. Really everyone that is in Halle’s life is slotted perfectly and I really love how the entire storyline comes together by the end. Where I didn’t believe there could be anymore twists to this plot, Coralee had a few more to bestow and it added just the right spice to finish up this trilogy to perfection.

Synopsis:
I was an alpha. A loving mate. A girl swept up in a cruel world.

Keep reading for a look inside The Revenge!

I didn’t recognize the night guard, but he straightened from the wall where he was positioned when I stepped into the hallway.

“Where is he?” I asked, before he could say anything.

His hands came together in front of him and he stood even taller. He nodded forward. “In the basement gym, ma’am.”

Ma’am.

I grinned at that, literally hearing Chrissy chuckling next to me. “You’re just like me now, girly. Ma’am. What a hoot.”

Yeah. A hoot.

I padded past him and headed for the elevator that went past the main section of the house. Going inside, I hit the basement floor, and there were two guards waiting for me.

I paused, seeing Josh as he was eyeing me. “Don’t you ever sleep?”

He grinned. “I sleep when your man sleeps.”

I narrowed my eyes.

His grin deepened. “So that’s rarely, ma’am.”

I bared my teeth. “Don’t you start with that ‘ma’am’ shit.”

He just laughed. “Would never entertain the thought, ma—”

I growled.

He amended, still chuckling, “Bailey.”

I scoffed, “Better.”

If anyone had asked me where the gym was on the Chesapeake estates, I wouldn’t have had a clue. I would’ve rolled my eyes and said something sarcastic like, “Of course there’s a gym; it’s alongside the Olympic-sized pool,” but now I knew exactly where it was, and it was right next to an Olympic-sized pool, though the pool was only two lanes wide. It wasn’t built for playing and horsing around, not like the pool outside, which had a complete slide with it.

Heading farther toward the gym, I was shocked to not hear sounds of grunting and punching from inside. Instead, the door to the pool was open.

“He had some extra energy to work off.”

I glanced sideways, not having heard Josh walking beside me.

“I honestly don’t think he’s human.”

Josh’s mouth twitched. “You might be on to something, Bailey.”

We came to the door and he stepped forward, checking the room before nodding for me to go ahead. I stepped inside, feeling the humidity and breathing in the chlorine before I noticed Josh shutting the door. A second later, I met his gaze through the door’s window, and he gave me another polite smile before pressing a button. The window frosted over.

Looking to the corner, I saw the camera’s light switch from green to red. Josh was giving us complete privacy, and only when that was all done did I seek out where Kash was. He was at the far end, turning, flipping, and coming up a few paces away, heading my way. I went to the edge and sat down, putting my feet in the water.

I didn’t have long to wait, enjoying the view as Kash’s arms were cutting through the water, his shoulders and biceps bulging from the motion.

I forgot how he was a fish in water.

His head was perfectly in alignment with his shoulders, and every fourth arm swing he raised his mouth up for air and went back down. He went past me. I thought he was going to keep going, but at the last second, his hand snaked out. He latched on to my ankle and tugged me into the water.

I shrieked before I was eating chlorine. “Agh!”

He grinned, the water pulsating between us, and he maneuvered me back until I was against the pool wall. “What are you doing down here?” His eyes were alert, taking me in as he placed both hands on either side of me, trapping me.

The buoyancy kept me floating, but then Kash was moving his legs under me and I was completely resting over him. My legs straddled his, and he hooked one ankle around the other, tugging me to open even wider for him.

Heat flared in me, boiling my blood, but when I thought Kash would bend his head, finding my throat, he didn’t. He moved his head back, sinking so he was on the same eye level as me, and he tugged at his sweatshirt. “Nice shirt.”

I grinned, feeling a laziness intertwining with the warmth in me. “It was this or a robe. This was closer.”

“Really?”

I nodded, enjoying the teasing look in his eyes. It was dark, but it was there. “Really.” My voice hitched on a soft sigh with that one. He grew sober, his head moving back so he could take me in more fully. “You look good.” His eyebrows dipped down. “You look like you again.” His hand moved, and he touched a wet finger beside my eye. “I see you again.”

My throat swelled up, my chest filled with an ache that was bittersweet.

“Woke up.”

“I can see that.” His head cocked to the side, but he didn’t say anything further. He was still holding me in place, and as he settled back, I knew he was waiting for me. He was waiting for whatever I was going to say or do, for whatever path I was going to put us on because that’s what I felt in that moment.

I was awake.

I said, “I know you’ve been waiting for me.”

That somber expression settled back on him and his hand went back to the pool wall, trapping me in again.

“I’ll never forget what they did to her, what he did to her, but I wasn’t myself. You gave me that time. You knew I would come back to me and I did. I’m here. Me. And I’m ready for the next chapter.”

Hunger licked my insides, lighting that fire again.

It grew, jumping up, and it was engulfing me.

I sunk down on Kash’s legs, and the higher that blaze built in me, the more I wanted him. But I wanted more.

I wanted blood.

Excerpt:

“I can’t lose you like that again, wife.”

The admission leaves me feeling vulnerable and I swallow down the rest of the words I want to say to her.

Like how much she means to me. More than anyone else in the world.

We’re quiet, the only sound is the sloshing water as our bodies move and shift. I’m getting hotter thanks to the steam wafting upwards from the water and I rest my cheek against her soft hair, closing my eyes.

“Why?”

Her softly spoken question has my eyes cracking open. “Why what?”

“Why can’t you lose me?”

Carefully I lift my head away from her and run my fingers through her hair, letting the strands fall onto her shoulders, the ends trailing in the warm water. “It killed me, knowing you were with him.”

“Why?”

Damn it, she’s going to make me say it, isn’t she?

“Because I care about you, Charlotte.”

She faces straight ahead, her back still to me, bending her knees and wrapping her arms around them. “Nothing about our relationship is normal, Perry. There is no reason for you to care about me or worry when I’ve been abducted by my former—lover.”

I slip my arms around her waist and pull her into me, the water splashing, my mouth at her ear when I murmur, “Don’t call him that.”

“It’s true. Calling him my ex-boyfriend sounds so… wrong. We weren’t ever together, not like that.”

I cup her breasts, running my thumbs over her hardening nipples. “I thought for a while maybe you went with him—willingly.”

She slowly shakes her head. “I would never do that.”

I’m quiet for a moment, considering what she said—and how quickly she said it. “Why?”

“Because I said vows to you and promised to be a faithful wife. I’m a lot of things, but I’m not a liar, Perry. We’re married. I won’t leave you for someone else. I—I care about you, too.” She hesitates and I swear I can feel her sadness. “I hate that he had me first.”

“But I’ll keep you forever.” The words fall from my mouth without thought and for a split second, I regret them.

Then again, I don’t. I mean what I say. I will keep her forever. That asshole can’t have her back, despite his trying. He’ll never try again. I won’t give him the chance.

I’ll chop off his hands and his dick if I have to.

“You don’t mean it,” Charlotte says, her voice so soft, I almost don’t hear her. “You’ll get tired of me, just like everyone else.”

My wife is having a serious pity party tonight but I can’t blame her. She’s been through some shit. Shit I should’ve protected her from. I failed her. I fucked up.

And that kills me.

“I won’t get tired of you.” I nuzzle the side of her head, my mouth at her ear. “Who else tolerates the Chevelle like you do?”

I run my lips down the length of her neck, noting the hitch in her breath when I hit a particular spot. The way she melts against me, tilting her head to the side to give me better access.

“How many girls have you fucked in the Chevelle?” she asks out of nowhere.

Everything within me stills, my mouth still pressed upon her skin. Slowly, carefully, I push her hair out of the way, pressing my forehead against the back of her head and taking a deep breath. “You really want to know?”

Her body stiffens and she leans her head down, as if she’s trying to get away from me. “Maybe?”

I rub her nipple with my thumb, wishing I could put my mouth on her. Taste her warm, wet skin. “The answer might blow your mind.”

She nudges against me, as if she’s trying to buck me off of her. “You’re rude.”

I clamp my arms around her middle so she can’t slip away from me. “It’s zero, Charlotte. I haven’t fucked anyone else in the Chevelle. Until you.”

My wife freezes, turning her head so she can meet my gaze. “You’re serious?”

“Why would I lie to you?” I drop a kiss on her lips, not wanting to push. She responds, leaning into me and I break away first, trying to keep my head. “There’s something here. Between us. You feel it too.”

Charlotte blinks at my honest response. “Do you want to know what I thought about when I was tied up in that room?”

My skin feels like it could burst into flames at her mentioning being tied up. Alone in an empty room, waiting for that McFuckface to come back and do whatever he wanted to her. She must’ve been so damn scared. “What?” I ask, my throat scratchy. “Doja?”

Her eyes fill with tears and a soft laugh leaves her. “You. If I was ever going to see you again. Feel your arms around me. See you smile. Hear your laughter.”

My chest aches at her confession. “I’m never letting you out of my sight again.”

Blurb:

Our marriage may look like a fairytale, but outside forces threaten to tear us apart. Don’t they realize that nothing will keep me apart from Charlotte? Not my family. Not hers either.

What started out as a relationship in name only has evolved into something much more. Something deeper. And when Charlotte is taken from me, I launch into action, determined to rescue her.

She’s mine. Nothing is going to stop me from being with her.

Not a damn thing.
