R E V I E W ➠ Savage Hunter by Lisa Renee Jones



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Rick Savage, but they call him Savage and for a reason. He can make you laugh and then rip your heart out. No one knows that more than me, Candace Marks, the woman he left bleeding from the heart. I loved him. Lord help me, I’ve never stopped loving him.
Now, I’m engaged to another man, a brutal man I’m trapped into marrying, when to my shock, Savage returns home. Savage who I haven’t heard from in years. I want to hate him. I have every reason to hate him, but I can’t. I still love him and I fear he will save me just to leave me bleeding one last time. He stirs my desires, a dark, delicious, and dangerous man destined to hurt me and leave me. This time I’m not sure I’ll survive.

RELEASE DATE: December 17, 2019

“Why are you here, Rick Savage?” He fixes me in a deep blue stare, and I swear I’m drifting in a sea of this man’s making. “To meet you. I just didn’t know it yet.”

Not my first read by the author, the blurb in this is what caught my eye. Dark Romance lover and all! Also forewarning this is a cliffhanger…there are two more books to come.

Now without giving out too much, this is a dark romance…a very ROMANTIC dark romance that has a lot of beautiful scenes as well as sexy, passionate, hateful, love….it kind of is a full dark romance package. I was pleasantly surprised to have really enjoyed this, a lot!

There are back and forth parts, meaning, you get a look of the past and present. The heroine and hero are so beautiful together, when that is torn apart…even a decade can’t keep them apart…even though it just might kill them this time…will they be able to come back together? The cliffhanger is dramatic enough but book #2 takes off right where it ended. That’ll be another review, but definitely would recommend this start!

R E V I E W ➠ Bullseye by Monica James



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

For twelve long years, I’ve breathed, I’ve bled for only one thing…
Revenge.
Four men took something from me, something which can never be replaced. That one night changed the lives of so many and taught me that monsters are real.
But I also learned I’m the biggest monster of them all.
Nothing and no one will stand in my way of redemption because those men…they’re now three. The fourth—he is the reason they call me Bullseye. They can run, but sooner or later, I’ll find them, just as I did with their friend. They’re already dead…they just don’t know it yet.
My plan was simple until I met her. A fierce tiger who had the power to break my heart. Lucky for me…she can’t break what’s already broken. I am no longer a man because the world is a jungle, and we’re all just animals—ready to tear one another apart.

RELEASE DATE: February 20, 2020

I wanted to thread my hands through her long hair and pull–hard–until she’s squirming begging me to stop. I want to bite her, bind her, mark her because her purity is contagious and I wonder if I can steal it to erase the tarnish burdening my soul.

-Bull

Not my first read by the author nor last, I tell you that. I fell in love with Monica James’ books from the first book i picked up and it has just gotten better and better. Now this, this ladies and gents is THE RIGHT WAY to do a dark-romance! Also, p.s. don’t read this at the gym! Just satin’

“Moments later, the heavens pen and dump angel piss all over me. -Bull

I don’t know where to start with this but let’s start at the beginning, where out hero has waited 12 long years for his revenge. When he is free to plan his revenge, nothing can come in his way. He is ruthless, big, muscular, tattooed, experienced in surviving, a cold blooded man. A shell of his former self, something he thinks he deserve after everything.

In comes, no scratch that (pun intended) our heroine didn’t just walk in but split through that big door, shattering it to pieces. A broken woman only out looking to make better for her family, whatever the means. That’s all she has left after-all. She is someone that is feisty, strong, sassy, vulnerable and has a big heart she doesn’t believe in. When she runs into a man that has the most special eyes she has ever seen, covered in tattoos and a permanent scowl on his face…her savior. Except he isn’t the hero, he is the villain.

This is dark, savage, dangerous, murder, sex….in all the right places. The hero and heroine are a match made in hell, the circumstances will have you glued to the pages, it’s relatable, you’ll want to throw your kindle a few times, yet it captivates you like nothing else. I want to say that I was okay after the CLIFFHANGER and this book, BUT. I. AM. NOT. I have yet to pick up another book because I want to message the author and cry to give me more. What a heart wrenching ending to this book 😦 I can not wait for Book #2 it’s killing me….damn you anticipation!

A TOP 2020 MUST READ!

Gabriel Legend is unlike any other man I’ve ever met.

He came into my life like a hurricane, shattering all my assumptions and preconceived notions.

But life doesn’t wait until you’re ready.
Whatever happens next, I know one thing for certain.

RELEASE DATE: December 10, 2019

I’ve clawed my way out of the gutter, but I’m a million light years away form your ivory tower. I’m not good enough for you.

Well, definitely NOT my first read by the author and YES I was lucky to have already read Book #1 and couldn’t wait for this!! The little wait was SO WORTH IT!

Just like with Book #1 I COULD NOT PUT THIS DOWN! It picks up right where it was left off, and YES starts with a bang too. Meghan March seriously knows how to suck you right into the story. The chemistry the scenes the actions, suspense, love and the sexy everything! The chemistry between Scarlett and Gabriel is something you can only dream to have. In this book it only gets stronger as the bond with Scarlett and her girlfriends! GOALS! You won’t ever find another connection the way these two are, I can’t express the feeling you get when you get sucked in and live through Meghan’s writing!

I do have to warn you again, aside from the amazing continued story between these FANTASTIC characters, the cliffhanger on this one: YOU WILL NOT BE READY, OR EVER FOR THAT MATTER AND HOLY MOLLY WHY?!

Not my first read by the author and I have to say that being able to read this all back to back was FANTASTIC! It was never ending and that’s how I like it! I could probably write a whole lot of paragraphs for each story but I think I will sum it down to what all three had in the best qualities that I enjoyed.

Wealthy, well known, handsome, dark and sexy hero Strong, Sassy, Beautiful and super smart Heorines Events that will leave you wanting more with mystery, suspense and action Beautiful and Hot Romance Basically all three of these were FANTASTIC to me. I just kept reading and didn’t want it to end, it’s the right amount of DARK for me also.

R E V I E W ➠ The Fall Of Legend by Meghan March



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

We come from two different worlds.
I’m from the streets. She might as well live in an ivory tower.
I made my living with my fists. I doubt she could even throw a punch.
Our paths never should have crossed.
We never should have met.
That doesn’t change the facts.
I would sell my soul to taste those red lips.
Fight the devil himself to hear her laugh.
Burn in hell to have a single night.
Scarlett Priest shouldn’t even know men like me exist, but sometimes temptation is stronger than will.
If this is how I go down, it’ll be worth every second of the fall.

RELEASE DATE: November 12, 2019

My voice goes silent as I stare into the bluest eyes I’ve ever seen. He could make a fortune off those eyes alone.

-Scarlett

Not my first read by author and well I can guarantee not last! She kills me with cliffhangers every time but every time I get excited to read it even if I know I will be thorn apart…it’s just THAT AMAZING! Not just the story, characters but her writing, so smooth and easy!!

The best beginning EVER! When you’re immobile, have music playing in your ears and it’s pitch black…who wouldn’t freak out?! Nope, not Scarlett…cool, calm and collected hehe always the planner. When she was handed a unique situation, Scarlett keeps her head high. Best part about their meet is that the mystery to it, get’s you riled up. I love how much affect Legend had on Scarlett before she even knew it.

Legend lives in the shadows while Sharlett lives in the lime light. She comes from famous parents and a father she just wants approval from. Two people who couldn’t be more different yet have so much in common. This pull they have to one another, it’s so strong but they both are so strong headed and stubborn!! Except Scarlett hehe she had some colorful dreams and imagination that ran wild involving him. But what is the most beautiful is when Gabe let’s go and let’s her in, letting her be HER and no one else. It’s really beautiful! Also their first kiss was FUN & also he calls he ladybug, so come on now. A big, dark, scary, sexy as sin man who fights and lives in the dark, calling a woman ladybug! *swoon!*

The ending killed me, I…I feel for Scarlett, my heart! *breaking* I can’t wait for Book #2 because this will be killing me not knowing…!

R E V I E W ➠ Love Drunk by T.L. Smith



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

One month, I fell for him.
Two, I was a goner.
Three, I was a daydreamer.
But by the fourth, it was a nightmare.
Everything came in beats.
Beat one—fantasy.
Beat two—admission.
Beat three—love.
But it’s the fourth beat that completely ruined me.
Beat.
Beat.
Beat.
With a shattered heart.
He was my nightmare.

RELEASE DATE: November 5, 2019

I’m love-drunk on him, and I’m afraid I will never get sober.

-Everly

Not my first read by author, although I haven’t read a lot by this author, enough to make me want to stay if that makes sense. I do have one book of her’s that’s on my TOP 2019 MUST READ list. That said, this is a DARK ROMANCE which I do read and really love, to an extend. This unfortunately went past that extend and sadly it was A LOT of dark for me, went over that line…for me that is. Maybe this is how DARK romance is supposed to work but I got to 84% and just, it stopped for me. I don’t know how to word this without it sounding really mean because it’s not, I just…it’s not my type of Dark-ER Romance taste! I am always hones tin my review’s and so this is what you’ll always get. Good OR bad! Also that’s how this review should be looked at

This is a story revolving mainly around the heroine, it is in her POV only but the end. It’s a power, wealth and Mob related dark romance. Everly is a young woman who is pretty happy, she has her life together and might even be able to be fully free of her father and family life. So she thought. When she meets a dark man because her best friends dares her to go talk to him, things really heat up. It’s romantic in a alpha dark sense, and I enjoyed it in the beginning. But nothing is as she thinks, her life…she has been living in her own little world unaware of her family’s work. This is where I don’t know how to continue with reviewing because it does go into rather dark-ER scenes that I didn’t even know would be my triggers. I had to stop at 84% take a breath and managed to finish Book #1 but it was really hard to. This is why: the romance for me STOPPED all together, it shifted into more hate, not in the sexy alpha type just hate between the hero and heroine. That’s one trigger, the other is Forced Sex (even if the heroine mildly enjoyed it in the first place) it went too far for me, at once points the heroine was not enjoying it. This is not to be confused with Hate Sex or Angry Sex. He does put marks on her, there is blood involved and just too dark for me. Writing about it makes me cringe because it’s not my cup of tea. So those are the trigger’s for anyone who also has them. I really appreciate my ARC from the author and will continue reading her contemporary lighter books.

The TWIST in the end is what also got me, intense but there is a huge twist for sure!

R E V I E W ➠ The Kingmaker by Kennedy Ryan



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

𝙋𝙤𝙬𝙚𝙧. 𝙋𝙖𝙨𝙨𝙞𝙤𝙣. 𝘽𝙚𝙩𝙧𝙖𝙮𝙖𝙡.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

RELEASE DATE: October 28, 2019

“We get whatever the fuck we want,” he says, dropping his eyes down the length of my body. “And I want you, Lennix Moon. I want the girl who chases stars.”

Not my first read by author and by all means the cover alone got me hooked then you read the blurb and realize that HELLO this is Kennedy Ryan we are talking about and you KNOW this is going to be epic! And EPIC it was, I couldn’t get enough of it.
For starters I want to say that this was FANTASTIC from the few pages already, and it only got better and better. The story line, the characters, side-characters, plot…EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS was FLAWLESS!

Part I:
Lennix & Maxim are a two souls meant to be but met in the wrong time. Not the wrong place, I believe Maxim was meant to be there that day, even if the day ended in one defeat and one loss…the loss being Lennix’s.

Part II
When their paths cross again it’s later in life and when Maximus see’s Lennix he would never forget a face like hers. After all HER is what kind of shaped his path. And it’s kind of funny how they cross path’s again, unfortunately AGAIN, right people wrong time. It’s get’s a bit sizzling here and a beautiful adventure. Until Maximus does what he told his brother Owen, no distractions. Two people ages apart in the same world wanting to change and conquer. *sigh*

Part III
Ummm Lennix is RUTHLESS!! Being in the Political world herself now MANY years later, she is set out to help the candidates win and move forward. It’s why I fell in love with her some more here, yes I think she shouldn’t have been that HARD on Maxim but honestly what he did, I’d do and think the same. When Maxim and Lennix path crosses again it’s not really fate that does it, but good old power and money. Only now they are both older, wiser and just MORE. I gotta say I’m not a big fan of Maxim here….*shameless hussy* ugh men!! But it’s a chain of events that are like a roller coaster, times your enjoy and love and times you fear and hate. However, the ending to this *which yes it’s a cliffhanger* my god I can’t wait for Book 2, this will be torture!!!!!!!!! PREPARE!

“Baby, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do to protect you. Just fucking let me.”

Not my first read by the author and YES I have read Book #1 Black Sheep! And I can’t express enough how much I loved both the books! This duo is going under my TOP 2019 must reads because, truly it’s amazon! Meghan March outdid herself!

Book 2 starts of with a bang that was left behind in end of Book 1! I don’t want to spoil too much though, but the sheer devotion of Cannon in this is SO BEAUTIFUL! I was shocked in the beginning, then angry, then the suspense…it’s just EVERYTHING i needed for a book 2 of a duo.

You learn more about the twisted family tree of Cannon and Memphis learns what it takes to be with a man like Cannon! The secrets, lies, suspense…I really really loved the duo in this, something about working together and the way Cannon is Romantic is off the harts…alpha, sexy and sweet all in one. He truly is the perfect bookboyfriend. And Memphis only rises in this one…you’ll understand after reading Book 1! I will warn you the twists in this…I was freaking out then reading faster to get the truth then slowing down because I didn’t want it to end. It was a roller coaster I never wanted to get off from! FANTASTIC READ! I will be re-reading this duo very soon! Meghan you are simply an extraordinary writer!

R E V I E W ➠ Her Lovely Lies by K.L. Clare



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ellie James loves him madly, wants his children—but does she really know him? Come a little closer if you dare. Will Hastings is back with more of the dark love story that began in Lies That Bind Us.
Loving her is all that I am. She is the flesh and blood savior who lights up my soul. She’s grace and beauty, the source of my addiction. I watch her every move, consume each breath she takes. I won’t live without her touch. She’s in my bed when I close my eyes and there when I wake. But now, my angel lies to me.
Elle secretly investigates the lies left behind by her sister and my brother. She should know better—no space exists between us, no room for secrets. I allow the deception while she searches for answers, but I’m always right behind her, eliminating the threats that shadow us. Her discovery? It drives me straight to my knees.

RELEASE DATE:

“Keep it up, and I’ll skip my first meeting and tie you to the bed.”

“No words, baby.”
“No words, Will.”

Not my first read from author also I have read Book 1 LIES THAT BIND US which is a one POV from the heroine. This though is the HIS POV version and it was pretty much amazing. Basically it’s an explanation to the WHAT’S and SO MUCH MORE! Yes, it’s a shorter and of course men are different from woman, but otherwise you get to go inside HIS dark mind. FANTASTIC! p.s. you still get a little of Ellie (that’s all I’m saying)

Loved the start because it gave me an inside to why HE FOLLOWED HER. He was a dark shadow always watching her, protecting and also wanting her. Maybe the idea of her but most definitely will do anything to have a chance to find out. This is one where I really can’t say a lot because I highly recommend reading LIES THAT BIND US, this will make all the sense and of course give you answers.

I will say that it’s equally mysterious, surprising, dangerous, dark, suspenseful with twists and turns and OH SO ROMANTIC. Will is seriously someone I could swoon over forever, he is probably one of my top favorite DARK HERO’s. BUT he is so hard on himself, in every single way, wanting to always do more and better…it’s heartbreaking really! His love and devotion and dedication to Elle though is mesmerizing, beautiful and passionate, so passionate!
