R E V I E W ➠ Little Mate by Elena M. Reyes


There’s no one above a KING…And yet, I’m restless.
I’m an uncontrollable beast that throbs in time with the heartbeat lulling me closer while a sweet, feminine scent overtakes my senses. I’ve never felt this before—a hunger so frenzied that I’m lost to its call.
This siren’s song is solely meant for me, and I give in without pause or question.
Because I know and accept.
A single drop of blood running through her veins is worth more than every soul walking this earth.
She is now what tethers me to this world.
And the second I see her face, I’m done for.
Nothing fucking matters.
I’ll live and breathe for my Queen. My pretty girl.

RELEASE DATE: December 6, 2021

Not my first read by the author and not the last, I have read all of her books and I probably will read anything the puts out. I love her Hero all about his Heroine vibe in any genre! This prequel is EVERYTHING! I have read Little Lies and this was the perfect before and backstory to the amazing freaking love these two characters share. I loved everything about it, from the historical aspect to the fights, the sorcery and then the chemistry between mates! Vampire meets his little match!

I am really happy to see the pre, because reading little lies I always wondered so this was perfect. You get the back story, the action, the killing, the feeding, the heat, romance and steamy scenes. The chemistry in this was even more explosive than Little Lies and that one was heated. All makes sense now.

R E V I E W ➠ Cruel God by Bella J.

(Underworld Kings)


My name is Rex Cain…but you can call me god.
I am the ruler of the Cain empire—a legacy built from the blood and bone of others. Here in my kingdom, only the strongest survive, and only the wicked can thrive.
That’s why I took my father’s life before he had a chance to take mine. But my life doesn’t flow through my veins. It flows through hers, the girl he tried to take from me. The woman I’ve stained my hands in blood for.
My most prized possession.
My weakness.
My butterfly.
She thinks I’m her savior, and I’ll burn kingdoms to the ground to keep it that way.
While she waits for me on her knees, I’m a king who reigns without mercy. While she obeys my every command, I’m a dictator who starts wars. And while she breathes, I’m a man with something to lose.\
My name is Rex Cain, and she is my Hope.


Not my first time reading this author and I do like her writing style and her DARK. This though, this was a dark of the color dark and then add about 100 x’s more. And then add a few more! I read and like dark romances but this was very twisted, fucked up but also beautiful in it’s own ways.

The darkness in this will break you, and the little hope will make you shed tears.

That is the best way I can describe this book. This is on the line of dark and darker, I can’t explain it without feeling every emotion while reading this, from curious to turned on to in fear and sad. My mind was at war with my libido during this whole book and it brought out all the feelings at the same time…I wasn’t even sure about the surrounding while reading just captivated in the moment. Unfortunately the more I read the more my mind won over, and I think this hero or rather anti-hero was a bit too much in my eyes. The lines were blurred to begin with but he was so far away that I finally realized that liking the kinds of this anti-hero isn’t something for me. I love dark, alpha, dominant, possessive but this one just went beyond that, the punishments, his thoughts, the other woman…made me angry the more I read. It wasn’t so much the situations which may be the fucked up thing about me here but more of the I was missing the actual Romance, yes even in this darkness I wanted that little hope and feeling…I never got it. What I also did not get which I was kind of waiting for to justify it all, was the romance. I know people will say well this is a dark romance but where is the romance part? This review went from 5 stars to 4.5 down to 3.5 and on the verge of it being a final 3 star which makes me sad because I think had I had that romance and affection between the H & H it would have been okay for me, not to mention the fact that the heroine barely speaks at all. I know there was a warning on this book but just not for me.

p.s. you do get a little of that romance at the very end, but for me it was too late. Just in case you’re reading my review and wonder if there was any at all at least. To each it’s own, had I had that sooner and throughout this would be a different review. Best of luck to the book.

Step-brothers, teachers, priests, and guardians…the heart wants what it wants.
These 12 love stories aren’t just taboo, they’re deliciously twisted.
Your wildest fantasies delivered in this LIMITED EDITION collection.

RELEASE DATE: November 30, 2021

All of these author’s are NEW to me reads. I will say that there was a lot of them I enjoyed and a lot that I skipped through a lot because they either are a trope that even for a TABOO-SEXY read I could not enjoy (i.e. cheating or fucking two guys (sometimes brothers) just the way it’s written not more as a erotic but a story and I hated it) they are steamy yes, you get a little bit of a story along with it to, clique of course they are short stories but I will say that first one with the priest *turn up the heat* here is what you’ll get inside:

Sweet Blasphemy – A Priest Romance (got my approval)
Always Been You – An Adopted Brother Romance (got my approval)
The Attack Zone – A Boyfriend’s Brother Romance (COULD NOT CONNECT)
Bittersweet Revenge – An Age Gap Romance (got my approval)
Dirty Secret – An Ex-Boyfriend Dad Romance (got my approval)
Hating Mr. Cooper – A Best Friend’s Dad Romance (got my approval)

Illicit Hearts and Broken Virtues – A Foster-Father Romance (got my approval)
Sugar Daddy Santa Claus – A best Friend’s MFF Romance (COULD NOT CONNECT)
Baby – Forbidden Age-Gap Romance (got my approval)

These are definitely twisted and taboo. Some of them turned me off but that’s because I personally just did not enjoy them or couldn’t connect with the writing style. It was a lot of fun to read I will say that, gets you all tingling everywhere 😉

R E V I E W ➠ To Touch You by Bella J.


I wasn’t supposed to kiss a stranger. But I did.
I definitely wasn’t supposed to like it. But I did.
And now I’m all caught up in the excitement of it.
The thrill and the anticipation of experiencing it again…with him.
Noah Alexander.
But there’s a whole list of reasons I should stay away from him,
One – he works for my father.
Two – he’s much older than I am.
Three – he told me to.
Yet there’s only one reason I shouldn’t… because I don’t want to.
I’m addicted to the fire that burns between us whenever we’re close. I’m addicted to the way he looks at me as if he desires and hates me at the same time. Call me a masochist, but the sound of his voice when he tells me all the things he wants to do to me right before he asks me to leave—it’s thrilling.
No matter how many times he warns that he’ll hurt me, I can’t stay away.
I won’t. 


Not my first read by the author, she is still a little NEW to me so I am getting used to the style. This is most def a DARK ROMANCE with twists. Also this is a cliffy in which I did not pay attention or bother to research so it was a surprise cliffy to me. I don’t usually mind them but they are not my favorite and I should have known since this author is known for them.

Before I get into the the rest I want to call out the heroine and say that it took me a while to get used to her. She is 20 and immature at that age on certain scenes and action, I was hoping for a more stronger heroine in a sense of acting older than her age but it did work out in it’s own. Just had a hard time feeling her fully. She is very verbal, foul mouth and acts tough that might have played a part that annoyed me about her.

To me this was a dark romance with a twist and the twist being that it could very well be a not dark romance just a age-gap steamy romance, but the circumstances made it dark. You wouldn’t put a construction worker as a dark hero but boy was he dark. His past was equally exciting as hurtful. I really don’t want to give out too much but will say key words like ‘kink & bdsm fire hot sex’ that’s all about that. There is a lot to this and I can’t wait to read the rest and hope they get a happy ending a delicious romantic sexy ending that is because these two together are CHEMISTRY OVERLOAD loved loved loved them together! It’s got danger, angst, spice and realness to it, again can’t wait to read more of these two!

R E V I E W ➠ Risque by Elena M. Reyes

(Beautiful Sinner #5)


I’m the new KING of London, but it’s her body I crave to CONQUER.
Her enemies have become my own. Her body is my favorite toy.
We were never supposed to meet, but then there she was across the bar sitting beside my cousin’s newest obsession. A small little beauty with a grin on her sweet lips and a low-cut top meant to tease—to destroy a man’s self-control. She didn’t see me, but I took in every sensual inch while placing a target on her head.
Our paths will cross, and she’ll fight, but I’m a man of my convictions. My vow is unbreakable.
I’ll be back for you, my Venus. 


“Come for me, Venus. Feed me what is mine.”

Not my first read by the author, and def not my last. I have read all of Elena’s books and fell in love with each one. This one was exactly what I was hoping for, she has a knack for giving us The Mob Boss Alpha Scary Dark Romance Hero that is all about his heroine & I absolutely LOVE that about Elena’s books. It’s such a turn on everything she writes and the Romance kills (no pun intended 😉

Dark Romance to the core. Killing & Blood so beware. The moment the hero saw his heroine, it was meant to be. From him checking her out and having her followed as well as investigated, down to the first date he demanded. The heroine is no weak bone, she def gives him a run for his money. She is sweet, strong and beautiful. Sweet because her heart is huge, Strong because of who her father is and the life she’s lived in that family & Beautiful but she doesn’t even know how beautiful. This is not a pretty world, but Callum will do everything in his power to MAKE IT that way for his Venus. Aliana has lived a life of fortune yes but at the highest cost, she isn’t self centered, cold hearted or brutal like her father but she does know how to stand her ground and fake it till you make it. When she plays a dangerous game with Callum, she finally feels wanted, free and adored. She hasn’t felt alive in a very long time and with everything happening she can’t help but smile at the big mean looking man that calls her HIS VENUS!

What I loved about this aside from the whole Hero is all about his Heroine, is their chemistry. The way these two are with one another, the fun but sexy feeling at all times. I truly felt every one of them. I can’t wait for more & hope Elena never stops giving us amazing reads like this!

R E V I E W ➠ Give Me a Reason by A.L. Jackson


Eden Murphy came into my club looking to make some extra cash.
A girl like her didn’t belong in a place like this.
She’d get ripped to shreds.
Most likely by me.
There’s nothing but sweetness dripping from her sexy little body, and I’m the monster who’s salivating to get a taste.
Trent Lawson is the last man I should want.
So wickedly gorgeous he makes my knees weak.
He’s also an arrogant jerk who happens to be my new boss.
When I discover his adorable son is also in my kindergarten class, I know I have to keep my distance.
But neither of us can ignore the attraction that flames.
One glance, and our hearts race.
One touch, and we’re aching for what we can’t have.
One night, and we’re falling fast.
Dragging her into my sordid world is wrong.
It doesn’t matter.
Eden Murphy is mine.

RELEASE DATE: August 30, 2021

Little Temptress. And I was just the fool who might get lost in her siren’s song.


“You are perfect, Trent. You’re perfect in your flaws. Perfect in your strengths. Maybe you believe you’re all wrong, that you don’t have anything to offer, but I can’t help but believe you’re perfect for me.”

– Eden

NOT my first read by the author and I have read all of Amy’s books and am a HUGE HUGE fan! She is one of my perfect safe author’s that I would read anything from! Her writing is unique and captures the beauty from the pages!

Let’s get started with this beauty, first off I want to say that I couldn’t have more excited to get a new series from Amy but one of my favorite combo’s too! Trent & Eden were addictive…from page one! There was something so beautiful in all the broken that I couldn’t stop reading.

Story: Eden is a woman just trying to help her father keep his dream in hence hers as well. After her sister’s betrayal she will do anything to keep her life going, even if it means throwing herself into the lions den. That being Trent’s nightclub, the minute he walks in and spots her, he KNOWS she not only doesn’t belong there but looks like a dream. A bright dream he doesn’t deserve. After a little banter and the heroine showing her backbone, the hero is surprised but also intrigued. After all, she is something he wouldn’t even dream of trying to have. The heroine starts working at Trent’s club for the extra money, little did they both know fate had a big hand in this in all the ways. They may look different and have grown up differently, one light one dark…their souls were meant to be.

This story includes angst, passion, love, danger, hurt, laughter and HEART! I was ready so fast I needed to slow myself down. I loved everything about each character but especially Trent the SINGLE-DAD who would give anything to protect the ones he loves. His adorable little son, his brothers and the deep passionate love he has for Eden. It’s so beautiful, painful, sweet, romantic, sexy, dangerous…everything you need! I can not wait for more! I have a feeling this whole series will become my TOP 2021 MUST READs easily!

R E V I E W ➠ The Villain’s Beloved by Bella J.

(The Villain’s Duet #2)


The day Elijah took me, he vowed to tame me.
I tried to fight him. Tried to survive without losing my heart.
But in the end, he did what he said he’d do… tame me.
He claimed me so unapologetically, and I surrendered willingly.
Together we found our place within the darkness.
We succumbed to wicked desires and tainted intentions.
And with every kiss, every touch, I allowed myself to fall deeper. Drowning within the seduction of a killer’s obsession.
I was reckless. Blinded by the promises of a man who wanted nothing but me.
I should have known better. Guarded my heart more fiercely.
After all—nothing good can come from falling for the villain.

RELEASE DATE: July 26, 2021

“My life forever changed because of one man who came like a thief in the night, snatching me from my world and forcing me into his . A man who, despite my inhibitions and instincts, had me falling into his arms as if it were the only place I belonged. A man who claimed to have been seduced by my music only to have me seduced by the magnetism of a wicked darkness that dripped off him like liquid temptation.”

– Charlotte

This author is fairly still new to me but I have read Book 1 in this duet & #BOOKDRUNK is all I can say right now! I started it late at night and stayed up until 130am to finish. #sigh For obvious reasons since this is duet I would recommend reading Book #1 first!

This really jumped right into where it left off, and everything after felt like I was flowing on a cloud watching this play out. This is a dark romance but when I say dark I mean a sensual sexy style, the first one included a lot of action but this was all about Elijah & Charlotte and I FELT every single page. Not wanting to ruin too much and not make much sense because this is a 2nd book to the first…THIS was mystifying, romantic, dirty, page-turned, gripping and heartbreaking. The sacrifice Charlotte made, the length Elijah was willing to go to protect her, mindlessly creating a barrier around her…everything made sense in the end and nothing was as expected.

p.s. this ended worse than a cliffhanger, so beware: emotions will play part, don’t throw your kindle! Sad and Emotional HEA but will forever stay with me! #trulove

R E V I E W ➠ Little Lies by Elena M. Reyes (TOP 2021 MUST READs)

“You taste like Heaven and sent from Hell. Which one are you, sweet girl? My prize or my incarceration?”


NEW to me author but I have had a few of her books in my TBR for a while, this one I saw on a sign up and just had a feeling, and I AM SO GLAD I DID! Gosh, I was up until almost 1am finishing this. I never wanted it to end. I also did not know this had a PARANORMAL feel to it as well, and I was happily shocked how much I loved it in every aspect.

My View: I don’t even know where to begin because I rather not spoil anything because in the end the beginning will make so much sense. This had all the dark and suspense feels, the alpha hero, the young heroine that was lost…in reality and her mind. She does not have any family and a best friend that is both a friend and foe. She is a artist with a unique eye and there is a reason behind it. She can’t seem to fall asleep without pills and when she does, she has horrific nightmares but also arousing ones. That’s all I am going to say about that, because nothing is as it seems and when you think you maybe have it figured out, you don’t! The paranormal in this really took me by surprise at how much I liked it. Everything was a suspense, mystery, unknown yet I couldn’t take my eye off of the pages. I connected with everything this book is. THE HERO, I want to talk about him only a little because well we don’t want to give out to much. He is the tall, dark and handsome AND LOYAL man that you want. A anti-hero if you will but with reason, he would never hurt his PRETTY GIRL. There are events happening in this book that even though I do not have triggers regarding this but it’s gets pretty gruesome in a beautiful way if that makes sense. Really wish this was a trilogy, I’d be happy with that for sure but I can’t wait to read more from this author.

“I’d do anything for you. Even if it means breaking you, to bring you back to me.”


Little about the book: This is a dark, suspense, mystery, paranormal ROMANCE. The heroine is a young talented and beautiful woman. A woman lost in her own mind and dreams, a woman with a unique look into art and a love for animals. She has this cute little dog who is just plain adorable through out the book. She is living a life she thinks is normal, when nothing is as it seems. She doesn’t have a lot, no family, n real friends, but she was left something at least, from her late uncle who she has never met but she is thankful for, to be able to live out her dream as a artist. The hero is everything you want from this style of book, dark, mysterious, all about the heroine, smart, mighty and handsome. Their dates are the sweetest and the SLOW BURN in a real burn! If you want to hang onto every page and not know what’s coming or know what anything is, mixed with beautiful pain, love and sexy?! This is for you, I would ever so highly recommend this book!

RELEASE DATE: April 4, 2021

NEW-ish author to me. I have read one other book by this author and wasn’t too much of a fan as in just wasn’t my style but I also don’t judge author’s by one book. So, I really liked the cover in this, I enjoy dark romance and mafia romance especially so I wanted to give the author another shot. Unfortunately this was not for me, it’s more the author’s style and some to do with the tone of the story.

To me mafia romance need to be really researched and done right. That’s just my personal preferences, otherwise it becomes a little either ridiculous or too much for me. This was not up my alley when it comes to the style of mafia romance, it’s not particularly a bad thing, I am sure a lot of people do enjoy this style….I don’t even know how to explain it, basically it, to me sounds like the story is just told, there wasn’t any particular thing keeping me there, like someone was just telling me a story. Another problem I had with this and with mafia romances (which most are and I get it I do) but I like the more dedicated mafia hero’s or rather antihero in these, if you’re not sleeping with the heroine I don’t want to see you sleep with other useless woman characters, it’s a huge turn off. That’s all I am going to say on that because I could go on for days on how much that a turn off is. So I do appreciate getting another chance to try the author and wish the author the best.

RELEASE DATE: January 26th 2021

NEW to me author and books. This is going to be a lengthy REVIEW I am just putting this out there from the start. I have watched the movie and this is my first time reading the book, fair warning I have read many review’s about the original language books and was kind of hoping the English version would pump it up a little. Little background so I am foreign myself and speak 6 languages and I have read in many different languages when it comes to romance, this has the potential for romance but it’s more a European version of a book JUST put together. I can’t say that I speak the language of the author so maybe in the natives language the book itself is more enriched, but I will also say that I did not enjoy the movie. Yes the actor was dark and sexy, and the heroine beautiful but I always base my opinions based on the book, hence why I am here reviewing the book. I am hugely disappointed in the translation portion of this story/book…I mean HUGELY disappointed! To be honest the fact that this was a big market movie that shook the nation a little, I was expecting perfection in the English version, what I got it the knock of version, and I don’t say that to be mean just realistic, when reading it was really hard to keep focused, to keep engaged and it actually made it worse for me the more I read. To be fair this does contain a huge huge TRIGGER for me, the hero/heroine being with other people so that didn’t help either.

We all know the actual story because I am certain a lot of people have seen the movie, and yes though the movie was very sexual, the book did contain it as well just not very well. Here is why: the hero comes off as a douche-waffle in the book, there are scenes where he is the weak one, scenes where he is the slimy one, scenes where he is the heartless one and scenes where he is the sweet one. It did not flow well for me therefore all I remembered from the book is how uncoordinated the hero came off. We all loved Massimo the actor but I for one was an ever more lesser fan of Massimo in the book.

p.s. Should have kept the original “You seem to be lost” instead of “Are you lost babygirl”

I want to very much touch base about the heroine in the book. Having watched the movie, wow what a difference and I mean the heroine in the movie is 10 times better than the actual heroine in the book. I want to emphasize on the fact that this heroine has a heart condition, I didn’t get what kind until they kept giving her meds to go under her tongue (Nitroglycerin) is a medicine used to treat Angina (a symptom of coronary artery disease) to which yes what the heroine was feeling was correct BUT taking alcohol in which the heroine DOES A LOT and I mean A LOT in the story, can cause harm. That said, I really wish the author gave us more about her condition in the beginning, to me it just seemed made up like, ‘oh she ha s a heart problem’ like what, who where and when. Maybe that’s just the American way of me by living here too long but I would like to know that type of things when reading. I could not stand the heroine through out the whole book she was fake to me, blotchy, unstable, weak, just plain weird. The things she did, thought and went through in her mind, I would never want to read about nor meet a person like that. That to me was unstable and unattractive in a heroine.

Aside the fact that I HATED that the hero did things with other woman, okay yes this is a dark mafia style romance so I can kind of get it, not for me but I get it. Massimo kept leaving Laura through out the book, then they would fight, then Laura would smack Massimo SO MUCH it made me angry, at one point in the scene Massimo begged or asked her to hit him, it was not attractive because it just came off at a weird time. Every scene the heroine seems to retaliate, but then it would turn around and they were sweet one each other. The time line was not straight for me, I felt like being the little ball in a ping pong game, transitions I can’t even remember because I was so focus on it being EVERYWHERE. That’s what I remember from this I WAS EVERYWHERE, and not just in the story line but the power struggle as well, between Don Massimo and Laura.

P.s. Could not get with Laura calling Massimo ‘Man in Black’ and ‘Don Massimo’ which I know if a native way of calling a Mafia Boss.

I was truly disappointed because again watching a Movie and reading to me are two different lives, and this was for sure, Unfortunately both for me were in the NO GO ZONE. I get this got a lot of hype and I am sure some will get mad at my review but I am always an honest reviewer no matter who you are, big author, small, new, famous, popular. I don’t care, I read books because I want to truly experience them, whether that is good or bad. I am not bashing anything but simply expressing my feelings towards this. I really was holding out hope for the book and understand that this is originally made and published in the author’s native language, that said, I have also read many books in different languages, some loved some did not, this to me was not well translated, I couldn’t get hooked or stay hooked and some of the words threw me off as well as some sentences.

The following are two scenes that both REVOLTED me:

I need to have her. Laura. I need her to be mine, I thought, straightening and impaling Anna with my throbbing cock. She bent her back into an arch and then lowered herself to the wooden table, now wet with sweat. I fucked her hard, keeping my gaze fixed on Laura. It won‘t be long now. Soon, those black eyes will look at me as she kneels before me. “You bitch!” I clenched my teeth, feeling Anna’s body go rigid. I pushed myself inside her hard and aggressive, heedless of the orgasmic waves rippling all over her body . I didn’t care. Laura’s eyes made me want more, but at the same time I couldn’t last any longer. I needed to feel more. Experience everything fully. I slid my cock out of her pussy and slammed it into her tight ass. I heard her scream wildly in pain and ecstasy and felt her tighten around me. My prick exploded with cum, but the only thing I could see was my Mistress.


“When you were asleep that first night, I ordered it implanted. I didn’t want to risk anything. It’ll work for three years, but you can remove it after the first,” he explained with a smile.

The book does give you more yes, and if you ignore the red flag and warning signs and enjoy this style just to enjoy it then yeah, I can see someone loving this of course and again in the native language it may come off different, I’ll never know but for me it is a hard NO, I wanted to give this a full shot and didn’t DNF it right away, I truly believed that the book was going to give me more light than the movie. Best of luck to everyone either way.

R E V I E W ➠ Heart of Fire by Meredith Wild and Angel Payne

He’s forged from heaven. She’s promised to hell
Professor Maximus Kane can no longer deny his passion for his stunning yet mysterious student, Kara Valari. But surrendering to their desires carries more consequences than just violating the Alameda University conduct codes. Kara has defied her destiny. Higher directives have been violated. Now there’s hell to pay
It’s a crisis for which there seems no solution, until the explosive secrets of Maximus’s bloodline are exposed. Despite all his doubts and fears, Maximus has no choice but to accept help from his enigmatic father, which means coming to terms with his heritage and embracing a bizarre new world of gods and demons. Because somewhere in that world—in the strange and sordid secrets surrounding his past—is the key to protecting Kara’s future. Nothing has ever meant more to him than saving the treasure of her life and the fire of her heart
While earth’s lower realms seek payback for Kara’s transgressions, Kara finds a new ally in a surprising place: the Valari matriarch herself. Beneath the scrutiny of the world press, Veronica orchestrates a plan to protect her daughter by doing what she does best—shining the spotlight on her. But by her side, Maximus can’t escape the glare of the paparazzi
Can they buy time and blind their enemies with Kara’s fame? Or will Hollywood’s new “it” couple and their forbidden love incite more vengeance than they’d ever bargained for?

Not my first read by the ladies, but this is part of my first PNR soo I have been waiting for this book, I really really got into the first book and can’t wait to dive in and get my answers! I will say off the bat that this is definitely more PNR, so Book 1 to me was phenomenal to ME someone who has never read PNR before…and well this book really dives into the PNR and fantasy meaning of it. I want to emphasize that I have never truly read a PNR romance, and this is all new to me…just because it took me a little to get into, I unfortunately do see that even with the power couple ladies, I don’t think PNR in general is for me in a whole bunch. THAT said, I can’t deny that these ladies really out-did themselves with this book…it’s captivating, the words keep you hooked, the characters are exceptional.

Aside from the God and Daemon world, I couldn’t get enough of Professor Maximus Kane and Kara Valari…his perfect little DEAMON! *shivers* the family dynamics in this was like watching a game of tennis, my head was doing back forth back forth and I was hooked! What really captivated me was the emotion and intensity, truly loved THE WORDS because these two author’s really perfected the combo-writing! Very glad I gave this my all!

R E V I E W ➠ Sound of Madness by Maria Luis

He is my ruin.
My complete and utter devastation.
Loyalty or death.
I make my choice in a palace of flames, and wake to total darkness . . .
And at his mercy.
Calloused hands bring hell to my door and his velvet voice spews only poison.
“A traitor to the queen,” he calls me, and though I don’t know his name, it’s clear that he’s no Prince Charming.
A man who demands that I take it all—and submit.
But no one will ever mistake me for a damsel in distress.
He wants me on my knees, but it won’t be me who breaks.
Only, falling for the most hated man in England was not the plan.
If war is hell, then love is carnage, and the blood that’s spilled belongs to us both.

RELEASE DATE: December 4, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read the other in this series and I can’t express how WOW this was!!

Damien Priest was something out of this world! This entire story captivated me from page one. Maria really brought the BANG! Beware of the twist and turns in this one, every time I think ahaa I got it, I get side swiped in the best ways possible. I really love the EMOTION in this, everything was with whole heart…I am tongue tied on how much I loved it all! The details, the secrets, the expressions…characters, side characters…you learn so much more here and it really gives YOU ALL! Action packed is what I safely say about this, at each corner. While I was new to Maria a while ago, her books really are full of LOVE and written so. This one Maria took it out of the park, just plain WOW!!!

R E V I E W ➠ Illegal Formation by Shanna Swenson

(The Gods of the Gridiron #4)

Hell hath no fury… especially if you’re Hades—the god of death. 
TE, Quillan Layton, is settling into his role as the newest player for the Gladiators. He’s embracing his brooding and dark character’s namesake. Hell, it’s easy to be such when your life is as skewed as his is. After all, he’s a single dad and the widower of a former drug addict who’s not looking for love—not in the slightest.
Though when he sees bad girl, Veda Ryan, at Paxton’s Halloween party, he might just be eating crow. This tattooed, pierced, and cynical Irish “snake-charmer” has more up her sleeve than ink, and one scorching hot night with her isn’t quite enough to satisfy the ravenous god within just dying to be unleashed.
Veda, the sharp-tongued twin of Becca’s, is an unhappy cheerleader, reluctant stripper, and passionate model-wannabe with a determination as strong as her colorfully art-clad skin. She sees the tall, dark, and delicious half-Spanish sex god, Quillan, and knows immediately that she has to sink her teeth into him, come Hell or high water, and does so that fateful Samhain night in an ILLEGAL FORMATION of epic proportions.
But Quil and Veda are in for a rude awakening. The old saying goes that if one plays with fire, one is bound to get burned and burned these two lovers will be as they fight their sizzling attraction for one another tooth and nail.
Will a devastating secret be enough to bring them colliding together or will it doom Hades and his Persephone to a fiery pit of never-ending regret? 

**This book is a single dad/bad girl/forbidden romance with a dark side; it deals with abortion, violent sexual acts, death, suicide, and addiction. READER DISCRETION ADVISED. HEA GUARANTEED**

RELEASE DATE: November 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read all the previous series books! This one was a 50/50 to as really strong heroine usually are, they aren’t my absolute favorite type. So personal preference. I think it was just a mix of the hero being very very controlling and takes a while to understand and the heroine being very strong yet vulnerable and I don’t know it didn’t mix well for me. It is the darkest I’ve read from this author and touches base on some touchy subjects, personally it’s a very touchy to me, yet it was beautiful to read and watch.

even though I have mixed feeling on this one, the author’s words are what captivates you, the form and the story line. It grips you and keeps you hold. Am so glad to have had the chance to continue reading in this beautiful series.

R E V I E W ➠ Follow Me Darkly by Helen Hardt

(Follow Me #1)

I’ve always been a control freak. But he makes me crave submission
Working for a hotel heiress and social media influencer may not be my dream job, but at least it allows me time to do what I really love—take photographs. Pretty good for a wholesome farm girl from Kansas trying to make it in Boston. Life may not be easy working for a diva, but at least I know what to expect
Until blue-collar billionaire Braden Black strides into the office. He’s beyond handsome and sexy, but also domineering with a definite hard edge. I’m not sure why he’s interested in me, but within a few weeks, he’s showing me a world I never knew existed
He’s opened up a side of me I can only face in the dark, and it’s quickly becoming an obsession. How can I give up something this addictive—even if his secrets could ultimately destroy me?

RELEASE DATE: September 29, 2020

Not my first read by the author but sure has been a while since I have read her.

Braden and Kansas are polar opposite. I mean really opposite in everything but control. Where Braden is a alpha Kansas is a woman that thrives of control n her life. When these two come together it’s a heat explosion. They way they come together is that Kansas job as a assistant to a influencer, and Braden ends up commenting one something she has overlooked and it happened so fast from there. The moment Braden saw Kansas he just KNEW! What’s fascinating about this is the bedrooom, because both are in need of control and well let’s just say that it’s NOT what you expect.

That is all I am going to say because I rather not spoil it and this is something you want to experience. It was unexpected, sexy, emotional, real and let me just tell you about Braden…the hotness level is over the top. P.s. I had the privilege of receiving a beautiful package with the PAPERBACK ARC and I loved it!

R E V I E W ➠ Power Term by Kennedy L. Mitchell

(Power Play #5)

Everything we’ve fought for grinds to a halt with the attack—our future happy-ever-after now a lost hope as I’m abducted from the wreckage.
There’s a traitor in our midst who’s working alongside my long-term enemy, eager to destroy it all. He wants me to give up, to hand the life I’ve fought tooth and nail to achieve over to him. If I do, the pain will end, but others will suffer.
How much can I take before Trey saves me from the terrible fate they’ve promised if I don’t comply?
This is it, the moment where I have to make a choice.
Me or the millions who will suffer under the sociopath’s hand if I give him what he wants.
I might have been raised poor trailer trash, but that’s not who I am now.
My name’s Randi Sawyer, and I’m the president of the United States.
I will not bend. I will not break.

RELEASE DATE: September 21, 2020

Not my first read by the author and I have read plenty where I am familiar with her writing. That said this is Book #5 in a 5 book series, yes these books follow the same Hero and Heroine so I would not recommend skipping.

WOW! Talk about being on the edge the whole time. This is high on suspense and action but it does not lack the romance. This is the final conclusion to the 5 book series that follows the same hero and heroine. Obvious reasons I would not suggest reading out of order. I am debating if I want to give a lot out but I honestly don’t want to because this is much needed after the 4 books. Nothing is what it seems, on the edge scenes, mystery, action, little dark vibes, pretty much had it all. The HEA will have you swooning, crying and feelings ALL the feels. Highly recommend this whole series!
