R E V I E W ➠ Two Pretty Lies by K.L. Clare


A pretty math prodigy with hidden desires… and secrets.
A ruthless British mercenary with dark cravings.
A dangerous new tale of forbidden love.
She sits alone in a coffeehouse, unaware of what she’s doing to me. Katie, the one with innocent eyes. My longing for her is as painful as she is beautiful. That glorious ache becomes my weakness, my sweet addiction.
I agreed to Katie’s terms without questions, promising not to look into her background because I was desperate for her touch. If she were anyone else, her lies would have triggered my anger when I learned about her identity. But I only wanted her more.
I’m a man who takes what he wants.
And I have no intention of letting her go.

Note: this is not a dark romance, but it has relationship elements that some might find hard to read.

RELEASE DATE: February 1, 2022

Not my first read by the author, I have read the other books in the series which this is the first series ever by the author. I loved Book #1 and everything it came with. Will was EVERYTHING, so I was super excited for Thomas because he was just so mysterious and drawn in.

Now it’s been a while since I read Will’s story where Thomas apears and I almost wish I re-read that one to get a feel of Thomas again because I don’t know what happened but I felt like I was ping-ponged the whole tory. I couldn’t connect to the H or H fully and them together was even harder, it felt more forced to me their feelings and the writing. Even when I finished I asked myself what just happened, I get why she did what she did in the end there but it was all in a span of a few pages and I was actually expecting it to either be a cliffy or hoping we got more of that…and THERE IS NO EPILOGUE! There is nothing more I dislike but no epilogue and I hope we get some sort of something from them because I am now left so confused and lost.

This is a story of two souls that are alike that’s how they find one another but are intertwined a lot more than they would have ever imaged. It’s got suspense, mystery and action. The romance I can’t explain because it was kind of everywhere for me but the moment’s that captured me REALLY captured me. The heroine is a sheltered good girl and the hero is the bad boy. Their story was sure interesting, and I hope to maybe get more in a Novella or the next book.

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.

R E V I E W ➠ Jett by Sawyer Bennett

(Arizona Vengeance #10)


Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional?
I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle.
But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone.
My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy.
Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?

RELEASE DATE: July 20, 2021

Not my first read by the author, I’ve been a long time fan and have read a lot of the books in the series already!

This was a very sweet one from the start. This book contains a lot of heart, truth, parenting, love and trust. The heroine is a single-mom with a shaky past because of her ex husband. The hero is a single and loving it hockey star, not a playboy per say but also not a choir boy. There is no OW involved which I was happy about. They both meet because of work and when The Hero tries to score a date with the heroine, he gets shot down. But the hero doesn’t give up and I am so glad he didn’t. In this i can definitely say I loved the hero the most and the heroines little daughter, and maybe her sister also. The heroine was a bit here and there, understandably of course, but she was too sweet in all and so strong after what she went through with the ex. When a hockey star who is loving his life being single meets the single-mom who also doesn’t want complicated but then love doesn’t always work in order. Loved watching these two together and the main reason it got a 4.5 stars is the NO EPILOGUE just a personal thing for me.

R E V I E W ➠ Fake by Kylie Scott


He walks the red carpet. She’s more familiar with vacuuming one.
When a scandal tarnishes the reputation of hot as hell A-lister, Patrick Walsh, he needs a reputation rescue, pronto.
Enter waitress Norah Peers–a nobody who’s average with a capital A. She’s available, dependable, and has sworn off men for the rest of her natural born life. In other words: the perfect match for a no-strings fake romance.
For the right amount of money, she can avoid waitressing and play the part of his dependable down-to-earth girlfriend. What she can’t avoid–dammit–is the growing steam between them.
But being hounded by the paparazzi and having your life dissected on social media is a panic attack in the making. And while Patrick might be a charming rogue on screen, in real life he’s a six-foot-two confusing, gorgeous, brooding grump, who keeps her at a distance . . . but also makes her feel like this bond between them might be more than just an act.
Being dumped on cue should be no big deal. Except being fake with Patrick is the realist relationship Norah has ever had. What’s a girl to do, but flip the script, and ask for a rematch made in Hollywood? 

RELEASE DATE: May 18, 2021

Not my first read by the author and I knew from the blurb then the cover that I will enjoy this. And boy did I enjoy the heck out of this, from page one. Usually I am not a CELEB HERO or heroine type of fan but this one was beyond perfection in that trope, hence why it made it on the TOP 2021 MUST READ list of mine! The only and I mean only hang-up which is personal for me is, that there is really no Epilogue. (angry face at that)

Hero is Patrick who is a well known actor and celebrity. He recently got into a little bit of a pickle regarding another celebrity (female) and the agents are out to repair his image. In comes the sweet, down to earth, beautiful waitress. Norah has noticed the handsome actor, but always gave him his privacy after all she could only imagine he wants to for once just be in piece and eat at a restaurant. But when he comes up with a offer she really CAN’T refuse, she doesn’t give it another thought because Norah is selfless and this is a huge quality I loved about her in the book. Both the hero and heroine really you fall in love with them even if at one point that involved a late night and a stupid HERO i wanted to cut him a little, I moved on from that fast Paddy! Yes that’s what they called him. That said, Norah uproots her life for the next 6 month and honestly the journey is hard yes, adjusting, accommodating and well trying to have a conversation with the handsome actor, turns out to be a lot harder than Norah imagined. She is very open and upfront, another quality to love about her and well Paddy he is very scowl-y and broody…in a sexy way yes but still. Their journey may seem easily mapped out but it’s nothing of that. I enjoyed every page, getting more of their lives and how they came together. I ended up loving every page and yarned for more. LOVE KYLIE and her unique way of writing style where she sucks you in and then you are just left with a #bookhangover and needing more!

R E V I E W ➠ How to Save a Life by P. Dangelico

There’s more than one way to save a life…
Riley James has everything to live for, a business to grow, goals to achieve. After everything she’s overcome, there’s no way she’s going to let anyone get in the way of her hopes and dreams. Not even a handsome businessman who makes her a crazy offer she would be even crazier to refuse.
Jordan West has everything a man could want. And yet it all feels so meaningless. But when tragedy strikes and he’s entrusted with the care of a toddler, life doesn’t seem so meaningless anymore. Jordan West suddenly has everything to live for. Problem is…how does he hold on to that feeling? 

RELEASE DATE: January 19, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she quickly became one of my favorites~

This was an interesting duo and start I won’t lie. The situation where the hero and heroine meet isn’t your usual but will make more sense a little bit later. The way they come to be is due to both having being in a situation where they would befit form one another. That said, it was the sweetest to watch the heroine with the baby. It has twists, lies, turns, adventure, romance, swooning and quite funny. I don’t want to give out too much really because it’s a book you need to dive into and get all the surprises yourself. I’s a very SLOW BURN and I will say that at times I was missing the AUTHOR ROMANCE and by that I mean I am used to her brand of romance in her books.

I do have to say that the ending well PISSED me off, and without giving out too much I think that the heroine was a little more at fault but it ended up being turned around the other way and I was SO MAD at her! Haven’t read a ending that made me want to yell in a while. The no epilogue is what drops by rating down to 4.5 I’m sorry to the author but I was already mad at the end with everything then to find out there was no epilogue kind of kicked me in the reading ribs! There is no cheating or any of my triggersd in this which I apprecita!
