Book Review: Kissing Games

Image
  She might have made it to Hollywood, but he’s about to show her what she’s missed… When actress Valentina arrives in Scotland to film Braveheart 2, she’s at breaking point. Driven by demons, she’s worked without a break since she was a teen and can’t stop now. Everyone she loves depends on her. But something’s missing. Despite all the glitter and glamor, she’s never really lived. Bodyguard Charlie’s lived too much. With looks and charm, he should have it all, but he’s broken. Estranged from his family, sacked from his job, and with nothing left to lose, he flies to the Highlands to help his best friend protect Kinloch castle from a crazy Hollywood film crew. But falling hard for a movie star isn't in his contract. Valentina’s never met anyone like Charlie. When he suggests she take a holiday from life, she’s tempted to step out of her comfort zone and live a little. He sweeps her into a world of skinny dipping, laughter and blinding passion. But as fun crosses the line into love,

Book Review: The Heart of the Villain

The Heart of a Villain by V.F. Mason is now live! Dark Age Gap Enemies to Lovers Romance THE DUET IS COMPLETE https://geni.us/HeartofAVillain FREE with Kindle Unlimited What happens when a Villain falls for the one woman he shouldn’t… Does love break the curse and change everything? Or will it destroy them both? The Heart of a Villain is book two in Beauty and the Villain Duet and should be read after Beauty and the Villain. My Review If you did not think it was possible to fall in lover any more with Aileen and Rush, than you would be wrong. The passion had grown stronger between these two. It was like they had always been meant for each other, despite Aileen originally being a pawn in Rush's revenge game.  This book is way darker than the prior one. It delved into more of Rush and Aileen's back stories. Which was full of blood and heartache. So, when these two would get together, it was very intimate. Not to mention...scorching hot! If you love age ga

Book Review: Devil of Dublin

Image
Devil of Dublin by BB Easton is now live! From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of 44 Chapters About 4 Men (inspiration for the Netflix Original series Sex/Life) comes a dark mafia romance steeped in Irish folklore. I can't remember anymore if my grandfather's eyes were blue or green, but I'll never forget the way they wrinkled at the corners when he laughed at one of his own jokes. Or the way they sparkled with mischief when he told me tales about the magical creatures that dwelled in the forest behind his humble Irish sheep farm--shy fairies who liked to eat tea biscuits, cruel witches who liked to eat children, a moody lake spirit with a taste for expensive gifts. As a child, I believed every fantastical word. But when he warned me about the mute boy who also lurked in those woods, the one the priest had declared to be the spawn of Satan himself, I refused to listen. Kellen wasn't evil. He was kind, and beautiful, and special, and hurting

Book Review: False Start

Image
  Holy mother-forking shirtballs. I shouldn’t know what my best friend’s trouser snake feels like. I shouldn’t but after waking up naked in his bed with IT pressed against me, I do. So, even though nothing happened between us, I promptly freak out. Silently, of course, because I don’t want to risk waking him up. And now I have a problem. For the past six years, I’ve been perfectly content looking the other way every time I see Hudson running across the football field in those tight pants or walking around our house shirtless, but now I’m noticing everything. Especially the way he looks in those jeans. And he’s not looking at me like someone who’s just a friend. So when he suggests one night of no strings fun to get it out of our systems, I’m powerless to say no. And then everything will go back to normal. Or at least that’s the plan. My Review First off let me say that having read several books by Melissa now that I am aware of the kind of heat that she brings to her stories. Yet, this

Book Review: The Rebel

  I was supposed to lay low while my Hollywood drama blew over. Not fall for a man with golden retriever energy who isn’t afraid to take what he wants. When I find myself back in the odd little town of Tipp, Montana, the last person I expect to fall for is an army vet turned cowboy. Let alone discover he was my first kiss all those years ago. Back then, I never even knew his name. Josh Laredo is smart, successful, and sexy as hell. When my efforts to sneak onto his federally protected ranch blows up in my face, he covers for me. Bit by bit he breaks down the walls I’ve created to protect my heart. And there's a filthy mouth buried beneath all that good guy bravado. He’s determined to peel back every one of my layers and give us the second chance he thinks we deserve. All he wants is to see the real woman beneath the Hollywood smile. But I’m searching for answers, and as more secrets are revealed, I’m learning that things aren’t always what they seem in Tipp, Montana. My Review This

Release Date: September 18 Winter Grove University is the dream school for anyone who wants to get somewhere in life, no matter if you’re an alpha, beta, or even an omega. It’s almost impossible to get in. So when I beat the odds, I know it’ll be life changing. I just don’t expect death on campus during orientation, or a warning to stay in my lane if I want to get through the next four years successfully. Not that I’m worried, or anything. That is, until the three most influential boys of Winter Grove decide to dedicate the semester to making my life a living hell for reasons that probably aren’t my fault. Foster, Dorian, and August know how to hold a grudge. And they’re not willing to let me forget any slight I may have committed against them. Now, with three boys making my life hell and bodies piling up around campus, I have to wonder if maybe I should stop worrying about my grades and instead focus on the two alphas and a beta who can’t seem to leave me alone or the killer who might

Book Review: What Lurks in the Shadows

Image
  The end was just the beginning.. When Grace was twenty, she had a front-row seat to the end of the world. What was once the perfect suburban life became a daily fight to stay alive. All that was is now gone forever. Determined, she prepares for what the future brings, armed with her instincts, the desire to protect her loved ones, and her iron will to survive. Just as Grace and her family adjust to this new uncertain environment, a much more terrifying threat emerges from within the darkness, one even more petrifying than the apocalypse itself… Told from two points in time leading up to one epic showdown, this twisty, page-turning, and terrifying account of a modern post-apocalyptic tale is a ride readers will not forget. My Review All I will say is beware the Click-click-click-click! Nothing good comes from this sound. There was a scene early on in the story during Grace's flashback to the past that was scary in the sense that it was a good build up to what was coming. At that p

Book Review: Claimed by Him

  FIONA I’ve known Tony Romano my whole d**mn life, and I hate that b****rds guts. I know he’s the one that killed my future husband that I was betrothed to since I was in the crib, but I kept that little secret to myself knowing it would cause a war between our families. I don’t care if the grumpy as***le is sinfully handsome with gorgeous eyes or has that toned bubble butt every sculptor must dream of. I hate Tony and he hates me, so why do I enjoy our witty banter every time we are forced in each other’s proximity or the way my heart feels like it’s going to beat out of my chest the way he looks at me. All I really want is to take control of my own life, travel the globe and most of all  NEVER  marry. I refuse to settle into a destined life of being a mafia wife with no decisional capacity. I crave the experience of freedom but ironically, the moment I let myself be free to love and be loved was the moment that I lost my freedom. TONY We all have rules that we must live by in my Maf

Book Review: All the Broken Girls

  When one falls Crime reporter Mari Alvarez was never able to solve her mother’s murder ten years ago. But when a woman is gunned down on the doorstep of her West Tampa neighborhood, Mari can’t shake the eerie sense of connection. The others will break Now there have been two murders in two days. Each crime scene awash with arcane clues—and without a trace of DNA from the killer. And for each victim, a doll. The first is missing an eye. The second is missing a heart. But are these clues leading to the killer…or messages for Mari? Unless she plays the game... Caught up in a maelstrom of Old-World superstition, secrets, and ties to her own past, Mari has only one option. Put the puzzle together before someone else dies—even if it destroys her career. But there’s no escaping the hungry spider’s web when it’s been made just for you… My Review I have mixed feelings about this book. On the one hand I liked the rich culture influence that the author brought to the story. However, I did find

Book Review: Toxic Wonderland

Image
  Mal knew when she entered Wonderland, it would be mad; she was not prepared for it to be toxic and running red with blood. Mal is a Fixer, a child raised and trained to “fix” broken fairy tales by an organization the Fixers refer to as DeadEnd. Because, once you enter a fairy tale, there’s no getting out. Mal has been assigned Wonderland. You know Wonderland, the place Alice visited as a child. Wonderland, with a Mad Hatter and a Cheshire Cat. Wonderland, who has consumed twenty-seven Fixers before Mal and has been dubbed “toxic” by the Operators of DeadEnd. But Wonderland needs to be fixed. It’s been toxic so long that every Wonderland story in the real world is being transformed into something entirely not child friendly. After training for eleven years and studying every re-telling of Lewis Carroll’s classic, Mal leaves the world behind and enters her very own dead-end fairy tale. Well… everything is certainly twisted. The people are broken; the Bloody Queens’ reign has thrown the

Book Review: Embracing You

  She offered me a deal I couldn’t refuse. A little summer fling. Casual, no expectations ... and a firm expiration date. Samantha Sullivan and I have been best friends since childhood. Totally platonic. We had never crossed the line, not even once. Until now. Sam has been running away from our small town for nearly twenty years, but after receiving a life-changing diagnosis, she craves the comfort of home…and my arms. She doesn’t want things to change, but I have loved her every single day I’ve known her, and now I’m addicted to her curves, her taste, and the feel of her skin. She’s too used to running, and this fling may have a deadline, but we didn’t just cross the line, we smashed it to pieces. She is my past, present, and future. And I’m not going anywhere. Author’s Note: Embracing You is a full-length, standalone, later in life, small town contemporary romance. The heroine is dealing with a non-terminal breast cancer diagnosis and she gets a well-deserved (and steamy!) HEA. This
