Review – Ruthless Kingdom by Becca Steele and C. Lymari

57310922. sy475

Ruthless Kingdom; Boneyard Kings #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: May 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Dark/Reverse Harem/Secret Society/Bully Romance

Author: Becca Steele and C. Lymari

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I loved everything about this dark story, it contained steam, mystery, brotherhood, and so much more.

Picking up right where the big cliffhanger left me biting my nails, Ruthless Kingdom takes off running. Major players in the poison filled city are finally unmasked as pieces click into place of a major conspiracy.

Saint, Mateo, Callum, and Everly’s bond gets stronger than ever as they work to bring down the darkness that has engulfed the city and their own personal lives.

I loved how everything pieced together and played out while they strengthened their relationship. No stone was left unturned and I was extremely satisfied with the way this trilogy ended.

While Cal and Mateo seemed to soften as the story went along, the more I thought about it, I think we got to know more of their true selves. As Everly uncovered more about them, the hard men they displayed to everyone else was just a mask that they eventually took off just for her.

Now, Saint is an entirely different matter. He’s a goofball and that never changes, but his personality of self destruction dies down once he begins to care for Everly. His comic relief is the perfect mix for this dark tale and I adore Saint for keeping true to himself along with always wearing his huge heart on his sleeve.

The four really connected when they let go of their hurt, grief, anger, and sadness. Everything they needed was with each other, allowing them to move forward and truly begin their future together.

Synopsis:
The conclusion to the Boneyard Kings trilogy…

Bad things happened in threes, but they turned out to be a blessing in disguise. There was no escape from the Boneyard Kings, but now we’re on the same side.

Our enemies came, but we didn’t let them break us.
They thought they could take us down, but they underestimated our strength.

Now, three rivals stand against three kings and their queen, and they’re about to see just how ruthless our kingdom can be.
The game of chess is in play, and only one side can claim victory.
Who will be the one to call checkmate?

Ruthless Kingdom is a reverse harem romance with mature themes. This is book three in the Boneyard Kings series, and cannot be read as a standalone.

Review – Reckless Princess by Tracy Lorraine

Reckless Princess; Knights Ridge Empire #8
(#2 within a trilogy, and #8 within a series)

Publication Date: May 5, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/New Adult/Bully/Mafia/Dark Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Toby really hates being coined as the nice guy, but….sigh…the way he is with Jodie is amazing. Sweet, protective, super alpha hot, but yeah, he’s also kinda of nice and there is nothing wrong with that because I adore Toby.

On the flip side, Toby is also a bad boy, he grew up in the mafia after all. His monster is the side he struggles with, not that it isn’t instinctual at this point in his life, but his monster has hurt the girl he’s come to care for and he doesn’t know how to win her back.

Jodie is hurt, she’s broken, and she’s more confused than ever. She was totally falling for Toby, but he ripped her heart out. However, once she’s had a moment to think and truths come to light, can she forgive the monster and be with the man she was falling for.

This book has ups and downs, sweet moments, steamy moments, and everything in between. Tracy continues to make characters I fall for, that top each other, and Toby and Jodie are sitting pretty in the number one spot.

Toby is the best of both worlds, completely sweet with a dark side that is possessive and a bit stalkerish. A total package. It’s no wonder he took over as my favorite Knight.

Reckless Princess ends on an emotional cliffhanger and I can hardly wait to find out what happens next.

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

I thought I knew pain.

I thought I’d experienced grief and loss.

But nothing could compare to the moment Toby reached into my chest and ripped my heart out. Shattering the very foundations my life has been built on.

Everything I thought I knew about him was destroyed in an instant. Confirming all my worst fears.

The man he’s shown himself to be has been an act.

A deception.

A sick and twisted game.

He’s nothing more than a monster.

I’m at rock bottom once again, trying to drag myself out of the pit of despair.

But fate is an evil master, and before long I find myself with no other place to turn but him.

He might be cruel.

Reckless.

Dangerous.

But I also know that he’ll do anything to right his wrongs.

Because despite my tattered heart, he’s still trying to prove to me that he’s not all bad. That the sweet guy I fell so hard for really exists.

But will it be enough?

Dear Reader,
Reckless Princess is the second book in the Reckless trilogy in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series.

Review – The Reluctant Bride by Monica Murphy

58927051. sy475

The Reluctant Bride; Arranged Marriage #1 
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: April 19, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Arranged Marriage/Midnight Dynasty Romance

Author: Monica Murphy

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Since I first stepped into the Constantine world, I was in love with Perry Constantine. Yes, he’s playful, indulged, and a bit spoiled. He’s the opposite of his intense, older brother – Winston, but that’s what makes him so loveable. I’m over the moon to finally have his story and tickled pink that his character is still a mama’s boy to the ice cold Constantine queen. Add in the fact that Perry is very self aware of his self-indulgent lifestyle, he is my favorite character in this Midnight Dynasty world yet. This book is all that and a bag of chips!!

Charlotte Lancaster is the only daughter of one of the wealthiest families in the country, but that doesn’t make her a pampered princess, quite the opposite actually. Instead she’s a commodity to be traded to the highest bidder which happens to be the Constantine family. Unfortunately, neither party involved in the trading is actually involved in the deal. The documents are signed and the marriage is already going to happen whether Perry or Charlotte want it or not.

Charlotte is a woman torn emotionally, desperately wanting to escape the tight control that her father has on her, but also hating that the only way to escape is through an arranged marriage set up by her controlling father. She doesn’t want to like her – forced upon her – fiancé, but the more time she spends in his company, she just can’t help herself. It wasn’t in her plans to stay with Perry, but maybe being married to him won’t be so bad.

Perry is charismatic, cool, and just fly AF. He’s the kind of guy you want to hang out with and definitely want as a bed partner cause when he’s laying on the charm…hot damn. The man is hard to resist. I want more of him and his sexy as sin charm.

The Reluctant Bride is an excellent beginning to this trilogy and I can’t wait to see how this couple gives in to their electric chemistry.

Synopsis:

Everyone’s for sale, including me. One moment I’m the forgotten daughter of one of the most wealthy families in the country, and the next I’m the blushing bride in an arranged marriage. My fate is sealed in my wedded union with a complete stranger.

In public, Perry Constantine is the life of the party. Easygoing. Adored. In private, he’s brooding. Dark. Angry. But so am I. It’s a contest of wills to see who will break in the bedroom first, and while I try to remain strong, I find myself craving the very man I swore to hate.

My husband.

Review – Phase of Fate by Coralee June

60146706. sy475

Phase of Fate; Shifter Romance #1 
(#1 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: April 21, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Paranormal/Shifter/New Adult Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A uniquely stunning beginning to a new paranormal romance by Coralee June. My mind is still swimming with all the emotions and imagery from this epic beginning where I was pulled in from the very beginning and left hanging with my jaw wide open at the very end. This book was so well done it deserves well beyond 5 stars!!!!

Phase of Fate begins in tragedy and is steeped in grief. This is a feeling I’m familiar with and Coralee writes it like she’s a bed partner with it. Halle is barely keeping her head above water after losing her sister and best friend in the most horrific manner, but upon a precipice of change she undergoes a shift that she never wanted and fears at the depth of her soul.

Theo is an Alpha shifter, a budding Alpha, but one who had been training for leading a pack his entire life. When his instinct pulls him towards Halle, he can’t fight it as much as he would want to. His wolf tells him Halle belongs to him, but the defiant girl infuriates him, defies him, and messes with his future which derails all the Alpha plans he ever had. The fates have decided that he can’t ignore her no matter what he originally planned now that Halle is his, but that doesn’t mean he has to like it.

Halle never asked for a guardian, especially an overprotective, growly one that she will never feel comfortable around. However, when her life changes and Theo becomes hers, her life no longer becomes hers in every single way. She needs to find a solution to save herself and save others as well. She won’t see other Prodigy’s suffer the same fate as her sister.

I can hardly describe how much I connected with Halle. Certainly not with having an overbearing shifter stuck to my side, I wish…but with the feelings of always being in the shadow or always being less than. I’m jammed right in the middle of two siblings and was always compared to both my entire life living in both of their shadows. Halle…well, I empathized with her emotions and her grief on a huge level.

Coralee truly infused this book into my thoughts and soul. I was dreaming about the book and couldn’t stop thinking about the characters or plot for days. While this has to be one of the slowest burns I’ve read when it comes to romance, I hardly noticed because it’s brilliantly written and has a totally original plot. I can hardly wait for the rest of the book to arrive more so because I’m addicted to the story vs.the slow moving chemistry. Who knew?!?

Don’t miss this fantastic read, especially if you love paranormal, new adult books. This one is a must read!!

Synopsis:

𝐀 𝐧𝐞𝐰 𝐩𝐚𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐨𝐫𝐦𝐚𝐥 𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐟𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐟𝐫𝐨𝐦 𝐂𝐨𝐫𝐚𝐋𝐞𝐞 𝐉𝐮𝐧𝐞.

I was the average daughter. The troublemaker. The side character in my sister, Mona’s, story.
My sister was a Prodigy, endowed with exceptional skills and bonded with a guardian. In a world where all leaders, scientists, and artists are selected and pledged to shifters, she was born for greatness.
I was born to live in her shadow.
In a moment of rebellion, I trespassed on pack lands and an alpha guardian shifter, Theo, bonded to me. Tragedy makes me reject the pairing.
They say I am a Prodigy now–someone special.
I think they’re wrong.
Theo is protective, overbearing, and gets under my skin. He knows me better than anyone else. It takes everything I have to keep the wall around my heart built up.
I refuse to ever trust a shifter.
I refuse to fall in love with my rival.
But fate comes in phases.
Once a nobody, now a hero.
Once an enemy, now my forever.

Review – Reckless Knight by Tracy Lorraine

60692711. sy475

Reckless Knight; Knight’s Ridge Empire #7
(#1 within a trilogy, #7 within the series)

Publication Date: April 7, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Dark/Mafia/New Adult/Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Toby is not the nice guy everyone thought he was. Welcome to a dark and dirty Knight that was hidden under the pretext of a good guy. 🔥❤

Swirling with angst and emotion, Toby is riding a knife’s edge of right and wrong in this latest addition to the Knights Ridge Empire series. Always thought of as the nice guy, Toby unleashes his inner demons and we get to ride out on all the deliciousness that he has pushed down for years. His dark side is sinful and I loved getting to know him better than just as Stella’s brother or the sidekick to his friends. Watch out because Toby is sinful dark chocolate with all the feels.

Jodie has no idea what is coming for her. Having recently lost her brother, now her father and her mum is hanging on by a thread, when Toby offers her a distraction she loses herself in what he has to offer. Little does she know that she’s just stepped into the devil’s clutches.

These two are pure fire. Falling deeper into the abyss of reckless passion; one thinking it’s closer to a relationship and the other knowing it’s purely for deception, but ultimately their chemistry is wicked hot and blazes with intense heat.

This is just the first book in their trilogy and I can hardly wait to see how these two work through their demons together.

As a small side note, I adored the secondary characters in this book. Not only did they bring extra heat, but also some comedy.

Tracy has once again upped her game and made me fall hard for this new couple and everyone else along for the ride.

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you a new dark mafia, high school bully romance story set in the Knight’s Ridge Empire world.

The moment I discovered the dark truth, it descended on my life and threatened to swallow me whole.

It tore at my soul, piece by piece. But I refused to go down alone.

My need for vengeance pours out like a gaping wound… directed at the man I thought was my father. The one who trained me to become the monster I am.

I will not rest until he’s hurt the way he’s made us hurt.

I will not stop until he’s bled like those I love.

Until he’s paid the price, I’ll never truly be free.

An eye for an eye— he once told me.

And I’ve found the perfect target.

Someone he thought he could keep safe. Tucked away from the depraved world I barely survived.

But I’ve found her.

The innocent pawn in my twisted game.

The seductive demon who’s going to help settle the score once and for all.

All’s fair in love and war… checkmate.

Dear Reader,

Reckless Knight is the first book in a new trilogy in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series and follows the prequel One Reckless Knight.

Read Kay’s Review: The Difference Between Someday and Forever

Excerpt from The Difference Between Somebody and Someone

“Sorry, is my mood killing your buzz?” I asked.
Her blue eyes sparkled in the glow of the airplane reading light. “It really is.”
I shook my head and went back to mindlessly flipping the pages of a magazine I’d bought at the terminal back in Colorado. I’d picked it up with hopes it would be a distraction from the cyclone raging within me on our way back to Atlanta. The minute she ordered that drink, I’d known it was a lost cause.
Her hand came across the armrest and landed on my thigh. “Bowen, stop. It’s not a big deal.”
It was the truth. Compared to everything we’d been through, our house could have been swallowed by a sinkhole and it wouldn’t have been considered a big deal.
Honest to God, I was lucky to still have her at all. It had only been nine months since we’d met, but we’d lived a thousand lives in that time. Unfortunately, that also meant we’d died almost as many deaths.
Terrifying, tortuous, agony-filled deaths.
We’d also found love though—immeasurable amounts of it.
I stared down at her engagement ring. I’d cashed out a huge chunk of my savings account and still had to open a line of credit with the jewelry store to buy the three-karat princess-cut ring. The payment was roughly the same as I paid for my truck each month, but the tears in her eyes as she’d sat in her hospital bed, clutching it to her chest the day I proposed, made it all worth it.
She was worth it. Every day, every tear, every worry-filled minute shaved off my life.
I’d do it all again.
If only I weren’t so helpless to save her. I loved that woman. Whole heart. Whole soul. Bend me, break me, crack me open and she would have been there. No matter how bad it got, she was always a part of me.
I wasn’t sure anymore if she could say the same.
“Bowen,” she whispered, just as she’d done so many times before. It was a plea. One she knew I’d answer no matter the situation. No matter how mad I got. No matter how much I feared losing her again.
My gaze instinctively lifted to hers.
She smiled and the sight caused an ache in my chest. It was a lie.
God, I missed her smile.
“Baby, I’m okay.” She tilted her head to her drink. “I hate flying. That’s all this is.”
That was a lie too.
My shoulders fell and a loud breath tore from my burning lungs, but I let myself pretend, my mind going back to a time when it could have been the truth.
I thought of the nights we’d shared multiple bottles of wine and made love, laughing and moaning under the covers until the sun crept across the horizon. She’d rested peacefully in my arms. No nightmares. No crying in her sleep. No insomnia. Just even breaths, her head on my shoulder, and her body wound around mine so tightly it was like a second skin.
But that was the past.
The unreachable, insurmountable past.
The plane jerked, forcing me back to the present.
“Shit.” She moved her hand off my thigh to grasp her drink as it sloshed all over her. “Crap, crap, crap,” she chanted, using a cocktail napkin to dry the dark-red pool of tomato juice on her white pants.
For a moment, I sat there and watched her struggle. It wasn’t the most chivalrous thing to do, but I was all out of grand gestures.
She unbuckled her seat belt and lurched to her feet, her phone along with a handful of ice cubes from her lap falling to the floor. “Damn, this is going to leave a huge stain.”
The plane jerked again and she stumbled forward, crashing into the seat in front of her before I could catch her arm.
“Dammit, sit down before you get hurt.”
Ignoring me, she bent over to fish her phone from under the seat. “Hit the button for the flight attendant. I need some club soda and a lemon. STAT.”
“No, what you need is to sit down.”
I gave her arm a tug and dragged her down to the seat. Using the tip of my boot, I swept her phone toward her. Aforementioned lack of chivalry aside, I was no contortionist; leaning over to pick it up was out of the question.
She folded her upper body over my lap and blindly patted around the floor. I fought the urge to run my fingers through the back of her hair. In the beginning, it would have been a no-brainer. I’d have curled forward and suggestively whispered in her ear, “Since you’re already down there…”
She would have grinned up at me, her whole face filled with mischief as she traced a finger over my zipper, ignoring anyone who dared to watch her as she replied, “You mean down here?”
I’d have grabbed her hand and made her stop even though I was the one who had started it. She had no filter. She always took it one step too far. I’d loved that about her when we’d first met. It was fresh and exciting, a far cry from the stuffy women I’d dated in the past.
But now, she was in the past too.
We were in the past.

New Release – The Difference Between Someday and Forever by Aly Martinez

The world took everything from us.

The Difference Between Someday and Forever, the much anticipated and stunning conclusion to The Difference Trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is now live!

The world took everything from us.

As survivors of not only a plane crash, but two other impossible tragedies, we’d more than earned a life of peace. But time and time again, we were shown that fate had no intention of giving that to us.

Remi and I were soulmates. Plain and simple. Our love should have died in the depths of our darkness, but the sun still exists even when it’s not shining.

The secrets of our past threatened to destroy us at every turn, but for Remi, I would never stop fighting for our future.

The world took everything from us.
And we would stop at nothing until we took it all back—forever.

Review – Last Resort by Amelia Wilde

59634116. sy475

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

Publication Date: March 22, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Suspense/Contemporary Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Synopsis:

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

There’s no redemption for a man with his past. No future for a relationship built on stalking and kidnapping. At least that’s what he believes. When he meets Daphne again, she’s not a piece of art.

The Difference Between Someday and Forever; Difference Trilogy #3
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: March 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Contemporary/Tragic Romance

Author: Aly Martinez

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Shivers, goosebumps, and all the tears. Aly’s writing does it to me every. Single. Time.

Remi Grey and Bowen Michaels are fate, destiny, and a love story unlike any other. They beat the odds over and over again and during the process of falling in love totally melted my heart.

This story held twists and turns, ups and downs, but through it all their love remained steadfast. Remi and Bowen’s love is so strong, the way they fight for each other while still maintaining passion and a playfulness, was refreshing to read.

I loved stepping into their world and falling in love with them, through the rough times and good times it was absolutely beautiful to read.

As this is the final book in the trilogy, all loose ends tie up and no stone is left unturned. Aly’s writing blew me away.

Synopsis:

The world took everything from us.

As survivors of not only a plane crash, but two other impossible tragedies, we’d more than earned a life of peace. But time and time again, we were shown that fate had no intention of giving that to us.

Remi and I were soulmates. Plain and simple. Our love should have died in the depths of our darkness, but the sun still exists even when it’s not shining.

The secrets of our past threatened to destroy us at every turn, but for Remi, I would never stop fighting for our future.

The world took everything from us.

Review – Bond of Destiny by Tessa Hale

Bond of Destiny; Shifting Fate #3
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: March 23, 2022

Genre/Tropes: New Adult/Paranormal/Shifter/Reverse Harem Romance

Author: Tessa Hale

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Bond of Destiny begins with high adrenaline and picks up right where we left Rowan, in the clutches of her deranged father.

In the final book of this non-stop action fantasy trilogy, Rowen and her mates tie up loose ends and finally figure out how to make their bond work for them. The whole trilogy has been quite an adventure and everything wraps up wonderfully.

Every bond mate is different and for Rowan, having five mates is unique. She loves each of her men individually and she wants them to love her for herself and not because some fate decides. In this final book she finally comes to terms with their love and how strong it has become. Rowan has dealt with a lot in a very short amount of time and while trouble seems to follow her and her mates wherever they go, they always step up and are stronger when they all fight together.

Once they finally recognize that their love really will conquer evil, they stay strong and work to bring about change. It’s not an easy road and there is angst and turmoil to get there, but what a worthy cause to have love as the backbone in any foundation.

Told from Rowan’s POV, this reverse harem is full of action and steamy moments which focus solely on the heroine’s pleasure.

Review – Deviant Reign by Tracy Lorraine

60396926. sy475

Deviant Reign; Knight’s Ridge Empire #6 
(#3 within trilogy, #6 within a series)

Publication Date: March 10, 2022

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Theo and Emmie’s trilogy has truly been a deviant brilliant ride. Themmie has not been an easily won relationship, but I fell in love with these two and their strong personalities from the very beginning.

Theo Cirillo is a leader, hard and merciless, but when it comes to the MC princess Emmie Ramsey, his possessive and totally obsessive side breaks through which also allows his somewhat softer underbelly. At least as soft as these two get for each other. (Theo’s possessive love is hot and he has become one of my favorite Lorraine characters yet).

Figuring out a balance between Theo’s total obsession with Emmie and her need to be an independent woman a tricky balance, but I loved this duality between them. It’s what made the enemy-to-lover part of the story crackle through the entire trilogy.

Emmie never lost her burning need to be an individual woman or give up her ties to her MC roots. I’ve loved that with this Empire Knight series. The women are fearless and certainly stand on their own without the need for their men, but they do realize that finding love only makes them stronger.

As this trilogy comes to a close we get a peek at the darkness brewing for what is coming up next and who is coming down the pipeline as well. I love, love, love this explosive series and look forward to more from these Knights!

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

Watching her walk away for a second time… nearly destroyed me.

But it was nothing less than I deserved from the things I put her through.

I should have let her go. I’d already caused Emmie enough pain to last a lifetime. But I’m a masochist.

Her pain is my pain.
And she’s mine.

Whether she likes it or not.

She’s my wife.

And the sooner she understands that she belongs by my side, the better.

Till death do us part…

I’m not letting her go.

Nothing she can do will convince me that we’re not made for one another.

We might be toxic. Combustible. A match made in hell.

But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

And together.

We will reign.

Dear reader,
Deviant Reign is the third and final book in Emmie and Theo’s deviant trilogy, and the sixth book in my dark mafia, high school romance series Knight’s Ridge Empire.

Part of a trilogy and should be read in order for the most enjoyment.

“Mind blowing!”—Goodreads

The Difference Between Somehow and Someway, the jaw-dropping, sexy and intense second book in The Difference Trilogy from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez is now live!

The world gave me everything.

After surviving a plane crash, I was lucky to be alive. It was a harsh truth, but one that changed my perspective on how fragile life could be.

So when a fellow survivor caught my eye, I owed it to myself to take a chance and follow my heart.

Bowen Michaels was guarded and broody, but I saw through his well-formed armor. Much like me, he was broken and lost, but together we found our way through the darkness.

For a brief moment, wrapped in his arms, it felt like maybe he was right about fate and we’d been destined to find each other all along.

But when buried secrets of the past erupt, igniting us both, it was hard to believe we’d been fated for anything other than failure.

The world gave me everything.
And then it took it all away.

Read Kay’s Review: The Difference Between Somehow and Someway

Excerpt from The Difference between Somebody and Someone
Book 1

“Sorry, is my mood killing your buzz?” I asked.
Her blue eyes sparkled in the glow of the airplane reading light. “It really is.”
I shook my head and went back to mindlessly flipping the pages of a magazine I’d bought at the terminal back in Colorado. I’d picked it up with hopes it would be a distraction from the cyclone raging within me on our way back to Atlanta. The minute she ordered that drink, I’d known it was a lost cause.
Her hand came across the armrest and landed on my thigh. “Bowen, stop. It’s not a big deal.”
It was the truth. Compared to everything we’d been through, our house could have been swallowed by a sinkhole and it wouldn’t have been considered a big deal.
Honest to God, I was lucky to still have her at all. It had only been nine months since we’d met, but we’d lived a thousand lives in that time. Unfortunately, that also meant we’d died almost as many deaths.
Terrifying, tortuous, agony-filled deaths.
We’d also found love though—immeasurable amounts of it.
I stared down at her engagement ring. I’d cashed out a huge chunk of my savings account and still had to open a line of credit with the jewelry store to buy the three-karat princess-cut ring. The payment was roughly the same as I paid for my truck each month, but the tears in her eyes as she’d sat in her hospital bed, clutching it to her chest the day I proposed, made it all worth it.
She was worth it. Every day, every tear, every worry-filled minute shaved off my life.
I’d do it all again.
If only I weren’t so helpless to save her. I loved that woman. Whole heart. Whole soul. Bend me, break me, crack me open and she would have been there. No matter how bad it got, she was always a part of me.
I wasn’t sure anymore if she could say the same.
“Bowen,” she whispered, just as she’d done so many times before. It was a plea. One she knew I’d answer no matter the situation. No matter how mad I got. No matter how much I feared losing her again.
My gaze instinctively lifted to hers.
She smiled and the sight caused an ache in my chest. It was a lie.
God, I missed her smile.
“Baby, I’m okay.” She tilted her head to her drink. “I hate flying. That’s all this is.”
That was a lie too.
My shoulders fell and a loud breath tore from my burning lungs, but I let myself pretend, my mind going back to a time when it could have been the truth.
I thought of the nights we’d shared multiple bottles of wine and made love, laughing and moaning under the covers until the sun crept across the horizon. She’d rested peacefully in my arms. No nightmares. No crying in her sleep. No insomnia. Just even breaths, her head on my shoulder, and her body wound around mine so tightly it was like a second skin.
But that was the past.
The unreachable, insurmountable past.
The plane jerked, forcing me back to the present.
“Shit.” She moved her hand off my thigh to grasp her drink as it sloshed all over her. “Crap, crap, crap,” she chanted, using a cocktail napkin to dry the dark-red pool of tomato juice on her white pants.
For a moment, I sat there and watched her struggle. It wasn’t the most chivalrous thing to do, but I was all out of grand gestures.
She unbuckled her seat belt and lurched to her feet, her phone along with a handful of ice cubes from her lap falling to the floor. “Damn, this is going to leave a huge stain.”
The plane jerked again and she stumbled forward, crashing into the seat in front of her before I could catch her arm.
“Dammit, sit down before you get hurt.”
Ignoring me, she bent over to fish her phone from under the seat. “Hit the button for the flight attendant. I need some club soda and a lemon. STAT.”
“No, what you need is to sit down.”
I gave her arm a tug and dragged her down to the seat. Using the tip of my boot, I swept her phone toward her. Aforementioned lack of chivalry aside, I was no contortionist; leaning over to pick it up was out of the question.
She folded her upper body over my lap and blindly patted around the floor. I fought the urge to run my fingers through the back of her hair. In the beginning, it would have been a no-brainer. I’d have curled forward and suggestively whispered in her ear, “Since you’re already down there…”
She would have grinned up at me, her whole face filled with mischief as she traced a finger over my zipper, ignoring anyone who dared to watch her as she replied, “You mean down here?”
I’d have grabbed her hand and made her stop even though I was the one who had started it. She had no filter. She always took it one step too far. I’d loved that about her when we’d first met. It was fresh and exciting, a far cry from the stuffy women I’d dated in the past.
But now, she was in the past too.
We were in the past.

Review – The Difference Between Somehow and Someway by Aly Martinez

59463505. sy475

The Difference Between Somehow and Someway; Difference Trilogy #2
(#2 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: February 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Tragedy Romance

Author: Aly Martinez

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Fantastic!! An emotional rollercoaster with another jaw dropping ending.

After the bomb drop in book one, we pick right back up in book two. We get a closer look at the pain and heartache of what led up to the horrific crash that changed so many lives, while also dealing with the aftermath of decisions made after that incident.

This is the biggest basis for the plot moving forward throughout this middle section of this book. While there are other moving parts; delicious, steamy, and also secretly intriguing moving parts, the question always comes back to what happened leading up to the crash? I loved everything about digging deeper into Bowen and Remi’s life, their heartache and love gripped me from beginning to end.

Aly is a master at fitting the right pieces of the puzzle in at the right time making the plot suspenseful while pulling at all of the appropriate heartstrings. Did I see the bombs waiting for me at the end of this book? That would be a big fat no!! I’m on the edge of my seat needing answers of how everything is going to turn out for this couple.

I’ll be biting my nails until the final book is released even though I should know by now this is how Aly writes her books and yet I’m stunned and shocked every single time. I love it and constantly crave more.

Synopsis:

The world gave me everything.

After surviving a plane crash, I was lucky to be alive. It was a harsh truth, but one that changed my perspective on how fragile life could be.

So when a fellow survivor caught my eye, I owed it to myself to take a chance and follow my heart.

Bowen Michaels was guarded and broody, but I saw through his well-formed armor. Much like me, he was broken and lost, but together we found our way through the darkness.

For a brief moment, wrapped in his arms, it felt like maybe he was right about fate and we’d been destined to find each other all along.

But when buried secrets of the past erupt, igniting us both, it was hard to believe we’d been fated for anything other than failure.

The world gave me everything.
And then it took it all away.

Review – Deviant Princess by Tracy Lorraine

60133879. sy475

Deviant Princess; Knight’s Ridge Empire #5
(#2 within a trilogy and #5 within a series)

Publication Date: February 10, 2022

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Deviant Princess has me torn in two!! Tracy Lorraine what have you done to me!?!

I’m super melty for Theo Cirillo. That man is all kinds of crazy, which I love, but in this book, we get a deeper look under the tough armor exterior that makes up the heir to the Cirillo mafia. Theo is so much more than he lets others view. While I love his dark, twisted, totally kinky side something fierce, this vulnerable Theo is overy-popping, lickable and delicious. He wants to keep Emmie by his side, for lots of reasons, but therein lies the torn in two part of my problem…Emmie is not a girl to be locked away and kept on a shelf. That man needs to learn to compromise and I’m not sure he knows the definition of the word.

Emmie Ramsey-Cirillo is one fierce girl. If anyone should know that it’s Theo, Her legally wed husband. Emmie is furious in this book. Rightfully so. She’s been lied to, basically kidnapped, locked up, or at the very least, held against her will, and she’s had no say about what’s been happening in her life whatsoever. It doesn’t matter that her va-jay-jay wants Theo, her mind is screaming to be let out and to have her freedom. I can totally see both sides…my clitty wants to be petted by Theo too. LOL!

Theo and Emmie are by far Tracy’s hottest couple to date and that is saying a lot, especially after Seb and Stella. I love Theo and Emmie’s spicy-hate filled passion. Their push and pull is super swoony and you never know when it’s going to explode ramping up the anticipation by tenfold.

In this book we get more action and secrets uncovered, while the couple struggles with the definition of their new relationship status. Will there still be a Theo and Stella when all is said and done? I’m on the edge of my seat biting my nails with anticipation. Emotions run high, action is nonstop, and family really shines in this part of the trilogy and there is still more to come. I can hardly wait.


Synopsis:
USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

As all my fears about Theo come crashing down around me, all I want to do is run.

But that’s not how this mafia prince works and I find myself bound to him even more than I was before.

Do I have the strength left to fight, or will he get his own way in the end?

Will I let him win?

Dear reader,

Deviant Princess is the second book in Emmie and Theo’s deviant trilogy and the fifth book in my dark mafia, high school romance series Knight’s Ridge Empire.

The world owes you nothing.

The Difference Between Somebody and Someone, the first book in the The Difference Trilogy, filled with emotional twists and turns from USA Today bestselling author Aly Martinez, is now live!

The world owes you nothing.

It took losing the woman I loved and facing the paralyzing task of moving on without her for me to truly understand that.

Consumed by regret and razor-sharp memories, I’d resigned myself to a life of loneliness until a survivor from the same plane crash that took my fiancée stormed into my life.

Remi Grey was chaos and sunshine, fire and freedom. With her in my arms, I began to believe that fate had other plans for me.

But as secrets of the past exploded around us, it seemed the only thing fated about our relationship was that I had been destined to lose her from the start.

The world owes you nothing. But for Remi, I would risk it all. No matter the cost.

Review – Grudge by Coralee June

59338230. sy475

Grudge; Malice Mafia Trilogy #3 
(#3 within a series)

Publication Date: January 31, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Mafia/Dark/Reverse Harem/Antihero Romance

Author: Coralee June

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Coralee June has created a wicked, dark trilogy legacy with Malice, Wrath, and Grudge. I could live in this world and never tire of reading about the Civella family ever!

Each character has changed since the beginning of this wild journey and yet the underlying dark monster that lives right underneath their skin still radiates like a beacon and swirled right off the page drawing readers, like myself, to devour page after page. Coralee’s writing is truly addicting and this story, especially, is pure perfection.

Anthony Civella is still my favorite character in this series. His madness is wrapped up in comedic genius and softer undertones. His underbelly has been on display since the beginning, making him the vulnerable, but also the most volatile never knowing how loose his cannon actually is. This time around he is Juliet’s most stable partner. I know right!! My love for Anthony grew even more, by leaps and bounds, everytime he came on the page. He’s her rock when things get tough, giving her a laugh when she needs it, a kind word, a push, or even darkness when the moment warrants it. He understands her vulnerabilities, he’s been where she’s at and he will always fall with her or rise to where she’s at to be right by her side. Anthony may always be a little mad, but the best people know they are and know how to deal with their madness. Lord, I love that man.

Juliet and Nick, or Malice as a lot of people know him, could have been the king and queen, but Nick realized he didn’t need an entire kingdom to still have his queen by his side. Nick just needed Juliet to be happy. At the end of Wrath, he faced his own mortality, and now he’s facing his own mistakes. There are consequences for a lot of what he’d done and Nick is dealing…almost losing everything has changed a lot in Nick’s life. He’s grown a lot from the first book from the empty shell of Malice, into Nick the man. He’s still possessive and dark and completely alpha, which is super hot…but he’s also a softer Nick which is also super hot!! I love this new version of Nick.

Then we get to William, the man with a grudge. The boy who grew up in the shadow of his older brother, yet also protecting his younger one. Never feeling quite adequate, William now wants it all. The kingdom, Juliet, everything. Can William finally pull out from the shadow of his brother and run things his way or will this motive finally destroy the foundation of everything he’s ever believed? Will every move he makes break Juliet’s heart and destroy his family?  William, William, William…come on work with your brothers!!

Grudge holds more steam, more tears, more story, just more, more, more. While I can admit it wraps up a fantastic trilogy. I’m also sad that it wraps up a fantastic trilogy because like I stated at the beginning, I could live here forever.

Synopsis:

Malice was a broken man. A leader with a cracked crown.

Guilt was eroding his throne.

William was an opportunist. A man with a grudge.

Ambition dressed in an iron suit.

Anthony was a survivor. A lover with hope.

Healing wrapped in good intentions.

I’m a pawn, and it’s up to me to remind these men that they’re stronger together.

I just pray that this fight for power won’t tear us all apart.

Review – Sweet Mercy by Amelia Wilde

59610621. sy475

Sweet Mercy; The Collector series #2 
(#2 within a series)

Publication Date: January 18, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Age-Gap/Dark Romance

Author: Amelia Wilde

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

A brilliant second book in The Collector series and not to be missed!

Once I began this book, I could not set it down. I was taken on a journey where I could not guess the outcomes; one with dark twists, super steamy moments, and an emotional cliffhanger.

I’m left with reeling thoughts on what is going to happen to this couple, but let’s go back to the beginning….Emerson and Daphne begin Sweet Mercy at a critical point where Emerson has just claimed that Daphne is his new acquisition. He’s an art collector and this statement is a bit disconcerting to someone who has just given herself to a man she was falling for.

Their battle of wills over the thought of being kept and his prisoner is twisty and dark, but there is so much more to this story than meets the eye. I love that Amelia has so many layers to uncover, or like a painting to view more to see everytime you look at it.

The book begins in a dark place, but moves to insanely hot mixed with intensely emotional moments. Amelia Wilde pulled out all the right emotions that made my bleeding heart cry and go right back to to pick up the thorny dark times all over again.

The secondary characters are excellent and I hope there will be more of them going forward. Emerson’s brothers, Sin and Will, are protective of him and with good reason. I’d love to see them with their own story, or to at least have more of them going forward. Leo Morelli is ever the protective brother, and I love seeing him pop up in each of his siblings stories. The Beast of Bishop’s Landing may have fallen in love, but he’s still a man to be feared.

I’m anxious to see how the story unfolds going forward, but also excited for Emerson and Daphne to get to their HEA.

Synopsis:

Daphne Morelli is trapped in a gilded cage.

She fought to escape her family, only to be caught by a billionaire. Possessive. Commanding. And determined to keep her.

Emerson LeBlanc wants to own the little painter. She’s become more than his obsession. She’s part of his collection now.

Except she’s more perceptive than he’d like. Her artist’s eye sees the shadows in him. She paints his pain on stretched canvas.

He’s determined to own her. She’s determined to escape.

In the end only one of them can truly be free.

The Collector Series must be read in order:

Review – Deviant Knight by Tracy Lorraine

59976362. sy475

Deviant Knight; Knight’s Ridge Empire #4 
(#1 within a trilogy, #4 within a series)

Publication Date: January 13, 2022

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

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Deviant Knight is a decadent return to the Knight’s Ridge Empire. Theo and Emmie are addictive, explosive and page turning excitement!

Theo was totally unexpected and also so much more. He’s always given off this intensity; radiating and pulsing right under his skin and it would basically take a cool breeze to make him explode. Yes, as the leader of his group, he’s cool, confident, and collected, but his intense passion that seems focused on one person…yeah, he’s hot, hot, hot!!!

Theo is a total deviant, and maybe just a tad crazy, but his intensity is insanely hot. Tracy took this couple up 50 notches and made this story suspenseful, wicked, and gripping from beginning to end.

Emmie is the perfect girl for Theo. She fights back at every turn, which is most likely why he’s drawn to her. She doesn’t sit around and take his crap and typically finds ways to irritate him more. Their push and pull, back and forth is so delicious it keeps the pages turning until the jaw dropping cliffhanger. I can hardly wait for the next book!!

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you more in her dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

Whoever said to keep your friends close and your enemies closer… was right.

Being around her is the worst kind of torture.

Emmie is an obligation I can’t avoid… an oath I can’t break.

And having her in my life is the last thing I want or need. But thanks to my father, I have no choice.

This Family—this life, is my future, and I’m sure as hell not going to let some spitfire from the wrong side of town get under my skin and in my way.

When the time comes, I will take what I need and walk away. I’ll finally be free from her shadow and she will know the truth, even if it leaves her broken.

The only problem… she might not be the only one left in pieces.

Dear Reader

Deviant Knight is the fourth book in my angst-filled new adult mafia Knight’s Ridge Empire series. It’s the first book in Emmie and Theo’s trilogy. It’s a dark bully romance with themes that might make you squirm in all the right ways!

Wicked Empire; Knight’s Ridge Empire #3 
(#3 within a trilogy)

Publication Date: December 16, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Trilogy/Dark/New Adult/Bully/Mafia Romance

Author: Tracy Lorraine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Lorraine pulled out all the stops for this roller coaster of a ride with an epic end to the beginning of this fantastic trilogy!

Seb and Stella are a totally badass couple and perfectly made for one another. In this third book of the trilogy, these two not only race against finding the threat who has been attacking them, but they also face new obstacles that threaten their new found happiness. It’s a real emotional ride.

Seb and Stella are extremely hot, hands down, but there is a ton of mounting tension between another couple, which made this book extra good. While Seb and Stella’s story may be over, Tracy has set this world up with rich character development and fully connected plot lines from her other books, but never fear, this world completely stands on its own.

Knight’s Ridge Empire has been one of Tracy’s best so far and I’m totally looking forward to more from these characters and this world.

Synopsis:

USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Tracy Lorraine brings you the next installment of her new dark mafia, high school bully romance series.

She didn’t want to believe me.

She wanted to believe the threat wasn’t really there.

But as the sirens ring out in the distance and she stares down into my eyes, she can no longer deny what’s right in front of her.

I’m not going to go down without a fight.

And I’m sure as hell not going to lose her now.

Even as our stubbornness tries to force us apart, severing everything we’ve built thus far.

With our nerves frayed and tempers close to breaking point, our fractured family sets about discovering the truth.

But we soon uncover more corruption and betrayal that only causes more pain to those I love.

Our entire empire is at risk, and it’s time to put the past behind us and carve out the future we deserve.

Dear Readers,

Wicked Empire is the third and final in Stella and Sebastian’s trilogy and the first couples story in my Knight’s Ridge Empire series. This book is a dark bully romance that contains mature content and demanding alphaholes that some readers may find disturbing. You have been warned.
