R E V I E W ➠ Wrecked With You by J. Kenner




It’s hard to get in—but it’s hell getting out.
He’s spent a decade chasing shadows. Ten long years tracking down the man who kidnapped him as a child and murdered his mother and uncle. And finally, Antonio Santos has found him.
All he needs is access to the exclusive private island. A carnal wonderland that only the elite can enter. But to gain access, Tony needs two things. The significant fee. And a woman.
An experienced operative with deadly skills, Stark Security agent Emma Tucker has no desire to be Tony’s arm candy, especially when she’s still reeling from a breakup. But the more she works with Antonio, the more she admires him. And when the island’s games push them over a sensual cliff, she can’t deny that his skills top the charts in the bedroom, too.
Bit by bit, admiration leads to passion as the mission twists and turns. Soon, they become lost in this island playground full of lust, greed, and danger. Where they could both lose their hearts … or their lives.

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my top favorite author’s and I have read ALL OF HER BOOKS! Yes I said all haha there is quite a few, but this Stark Series was something I was soooo excited about and glad exists. This was a bad-ass read because the heroine is Eliza’s Sister (Quince and Eliza from Book ) and she is pretty bad-ass, honest, sweet, smart and doesn’t take shit from anyone.

Anotnio and Emma are a power-couple duo, before they even knew what was coming, they were drawn to one another. He pushes her buttons and she drives him crazy, perfect work relationship combo don’t you think?! But what happens when the line is blurred and they find out that aside from being great at their jobs that together, they spark something inside that both are surprised even exists anymore.

Honestly, I have to say that it took me a little to get into the story. It’s a lot more action and less romance in this one, I think it has to do with the heroine being an agent and very..independent and more rough I guess. And not in a bad way just in a not fully my style, I can appreciate the strength she has and both of them have some deep issues that stand in the way. Once I got into it, I was glued to the story. The ending took me by surprise. This series is a definite MUST READ!

Sometimes trying to catch a star will light your whole world on fire….
Emily’s entire existence is wrapped up in touring with her up-and-coming country rock band Carolina George and trying to build them into a music legend. Her passionate night with a gorgeous, tattooed bad boy was the result of too much time on the road, too much tequila and combustible physical chemistry. It was never supposed to follow her into the light of day, much less threaten everything she and the band have worked so hard to create.
Royce’s night with the lead singer of Carolina George was the worst mistake of his life. He needs the band to sign on to his record label or his family will pay the price. But will his irresistible attraction to Emily destroy his carefully laid plans?
Royce’s past is littered with mistakes and heartache – will his love for Emily be just one more tragedy?

R E V I E W ➠ Black Tangled Heart by Samantha Young




To my siblings, Jane was a friend. A pseudo-sister, the girl we grew up with.
To me? She was everything.
Our passion consumed us.
When our world fell apart, I thought our love would be the thing that held us together.
She was the love of my life. But she abandoned me when I needed her most.
And I’ll never forgive her.
For years I’ve been planning my revenge against the people who took everything from me.
Jane won’t be an exception. I’m coming for her.
She knows it.
She says she wants to help me serve my version of justice on the people who hurt me.
I’ll let her.
She probably thinks it will save her from me.
It won’t.

RELEASE DATE: May 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she happens to be one of my firsts many moons ago. So I am very familiar with her style but HELLO was I shocken with this. I did not know that enemy-to and ANTI-HERO came from the sweet Samantha! Okay, I kind of am not suprised but it was really really good. I haven’t read her books in a while therefore this was a good shock for me. I will note that I have not read Book 1 & 2 in this series but I have read the 2.5 Book Hold On.

What captures me the most in this story is that it was so relatable that I didn’t even know I was just reading at times, the events and actions…it was…it broke my heart but I was still lusting after it. First you get hit with the before, and it’s fierce young love then you get hit with the ugly and real…and then finally the present. I don’t do spoilers and if I don’t want what I type I might blur something out…it’s really one of those books that you do NOT want the spoilers because it’s that amazing! All I will say is don’t always believe what other’s say!

R E V I E W ➠ Blowback by Monica James


(The Monsters Within Duet #2)


This was supposed to be simple. Vengeance was mine. But I should know by now that nothing in life is easy.
My endgame has changed all because I met someone who wishes I was dead. Yet her hatred is the only thing saving her from The Big Bad. My lies protect her, so the harder she hates, the safer she is.
The thing about love and hate—it skates a very thin line. I need to stay away. It’s better for everyone if I do. But fighting this is like fighting nature.
Our paths crossed for a reason, and my Tiger isn’t fooled. Once the smoke clears, she will see every player, including me. I don’t deserve a second chance. But I want one…because I want her. The question is, what happens when the truth is finally revealed?
With the end in sight, I can promise you there will be nothing but violence and mayhem.
Oh yes, blood will be shed. 

RELEASE DATE: May 7, 2020

Not my first read by the author and won’t be my last. I have of course read Book #1 which at this point I don’t need to say would be a great idea to read first, I mean if you want to go backward…by all means to each it’s own, no judgement…but read Book #1 🙂 That said I sadly can not give out too much because it really really would ruin the story line…and since I am a SPOILER FREE review’er I will do my best! MIND-BLOWING is one word I can describe this DUO…all in all Monica really knows her words and her dark romance is right on that line…

This conclusion was everything you would want from the book 1 WORLD we got…I don’t know how to explain it besides that I felt like I was part of the world, like on the sideline and this is being filmed but in real life. The dark, the deception, the hurt, the pain…it all felt real as did the sexiness of this, both characters volubility, their strength…alone they may have been broken but together not only strong but they didn’t even know themselves HOW strong together they were. Pull and push, angst, just plain beautiful! When it came down for revenge…this twist and turn conclusion will have you on the edge of your seat!

R E V I E W ➠ Road To Fire by Maria Luis


(Broken Crown Trilogy #1)


“I’m not scared of you.”
I meet her gaze. “You should be.”

Bound by a secret oath spanning generations, I am loyal to no one but the queen.
Spy.
Defender of the Crown.
To all of England, I’m Saxon Priest. Traitor. Murderer. Owner of London’s most infamous anti-loyalist pub.
And then she appears.
Isla Quinn may claim that she’s only looking to bus tables, but I’m no fool. Bitterness bleeds from her hard-blue eyes, and her hatred for the queen is so palpable, I can practically taste it off every sharp-tongued word slipping from her full mouth.
“Hire me,” she begs.
Won opposite sides of this war. Enemies from the start.
Isla thought she found an ally, but she’s found me instead.
Savage.
Ruthless.
A man with no heart, no matter how the dead space inside my chest lurches whenever she’s near.
And so I lean over, dragging her deep into this twisted game of crowns and thrones, and offer a single vow: “I could use you.”

RELEASE DATE: April 30, 2020

The palest green eyes I’ve ever encountered fixate on me. Fixate, and don’t waver, as though that one glance has gifted him the opportunity to bare my soul and steal every last one of my secrets.

-Isla

“I don’t get into cars with strangers.”
“I saved you.”
“You want to sack me!”
“Semantics.”


I don’t know where to begin but with a WOW! simply I am taken back by this style and words and everything coming from Maria. Absolutely couldn’t stop reading from page 1. I am a fan of WELL DONE DARK ROMANCE and she just knocked it out of the park. Holy molly was i captivated!!!

I can’t give you much on the book because i don’t do spoilers but i really don’t want to spoil one bit of this, but I’ll try my best to give you a glimpse. First of its action packed from the beginning, goes in strong. its a international-romance in the world revolving the king & queen. An organization sworn to its duty, a woman with a secret and a man so dark, brutal, cold…that you’ll be so proud of the heroine. For all her faults and weaknesses, HIM is not one of them!

Truly truly Wish i had book 2 and 3 to continue reading back to back. I’ll go as far to say that this should definitely be a movie, one which even my non-romantic husband would watch. It kind of has everything from deception, action, captivating story line and plot, unique and amazing characters, romance, sexiness, darkness and even heart. Simply plain a top 2020 must read & I am looking forward to the remainder of this trilogy. p.s. that ending, was not expecting that AT ALL!!

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



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Lies. Deceit. Espionage. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg here in DC.
My boyfriend is fake engaged, I’m pretty sure someone out there is trying to kill me, and now a sexy-as-sin attorney from the Justice Department is investigating me and I have zero clue as to why. Torn between duty and love, I’m not just floundering in my role as VP, I’m drowning.
When the pieces of the president’s plan come to light, I know I have to stop him. Permanently this time. How I’ll get out of this alive, I have no idea, but at least I still have my favorite secret service agent, Trey Benson, by my side—for now.
I’ll do whatever it takes to remove Kyle from office, even if it means sacrificing everything I love. Again.

Power Switch is the third book in the five-book Power Play series and is a continuation of Randi and Trey’s epic love story. The books in this series cannot be read as standalones. All five books follow one main couple’s relationship as it grows through a five-year time period. It’s suspenseful, steamy, and oh so unputdownable. If you’re a fan of Tiffany Snow, Meghan March, and Skye Warren, then this series is for YOU! 

RELEASE DATE: April 20, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites and I also have read Book 1 & 2 out of the 5 series books!

You will get a strong doze of Jessica in this one and I pray that she “accidentally” gets killed off! Anyways, thus far (and since this is book 3 and I hope no one is reading in the middle of a full length 5 book series) we all know that the heroine Randi is the VP of the USA with a President who is a big DICK! Trey the hero is cornered by his parents specifically his mother to do something that he wouldn’t normally agree to but to keep Randi safe he had no choice. His relationship with Jessica who in the beginning really seemed like a ‘woman power’ type of person until Trey’s mother got her claws in her, is a rather preternatural relationship! I didn’t like the “triangle” aspect of it in the beginning, it turned me off only because that is my taste or NOT my taste to be exact. I put a lot of emotion and feeling into reading, and it’s not so much as put but that’s how I read, will a full heart and concentration to the story and characters. Blessing & a Curse!

That also said, it really in this one you can see how hard it really is to keep a relationship when you’re the VP and the other is sworn and paid to protect you. The hurdles they go through are real and dangerous, sweet, romantic, fast, mysterious…it has it all. It’s deep political romance but with lot’s of twists and turns. Randi is complex character that Trey keeps at bay, they really are perfectly perfect together. Aside from the beginning where I wanted Jessica killed off, I really enjoyed the remainder. Now let’s talk about the ending: everything from 65% and on was intense, from the lies, secrets, danger constant danger, Randi holds her ground. Like I said these two are perfect for one another and the ending had me SHOOCKED!!!!!! Just shoocked!

R E V I E W ➠ Ask Me If I Care by Lani Lynn Vale



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Ares saw him for the first time at a Kilgore Police Department benefit dinner. She’d gone with her dad as his plus one. Hayes Greer had gone by himself and brooded silently across the same table as her, drinking whiskey and not saying a word.
It only took that one time for her to become interested.
The next time she saw him, he was doing another benefit—but this one requiring a whole lot fewer clothes. And that was when she knew. She wanted him. Badly. But the morose Hayes was too busy thinking about his sins to see what was right in front of his face—Ares.
Hayes Greer knew the moment that he saw the feisty Ares Downy again that he should’ve stayed away. Maybe if he hadn’t done the stupid calendar, he wouldn’t be questioning every single woman’s intentions.
Maybe if he’d listened to that niggling feeling telling him to stay away, he would’ve been able to do his job a little better. But seeing her with a knife to her throat, in the middle of a building set to blow, made his usually well-wired brain start to malfunction.
Because nobody was allowed to touch her like that—only him. Nobody was allowed to scare her, either. Not and live to tell the tale. 

RELEASE DATE: April 14, 2020

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites! She has a variety and plenty of books to entertain your soul, and this series is one of them. I have also read the previous books in this series!

Hayes is a different type of hero, broody yes, fighting daemons yes but something about him…dark. He doesn’t speak much and when he does it will never involve his past or problems. He is a great cop and when the little Ares is mixed up in dangerous situation, his outlook on her changes. There is a lot of laughter, banter, sweet and some sour. Area was my favorite in all this, I loved her because of her big heart and always wanting to help and be supportive. They make an opposite attract couple and when the sparks finally fly, boy do they fly in a alpha sexy and sweet heroine way! I can’t explain it without spoiling it but, this is a definite MUST READ!!

R E V I E W ➠ Southern Comfort by Natasha Madison



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Buried secrets never stay hidden in the South.

Olivia
When you find out that your fiancé is arrested for swindling over ten million dollars from his clients, you do what any sane woman would do. You escape reality and go undercover, trading in your city-girl Louboutins for country-pumpkin cowboy boots.
It wasn’t a forever change—it was temporary. I only had to stay here until things back home got straightened out, or so I thought.
Casey
I was riding horses before I was walking, or at least that was what they told me. I always knew I would take over the family farm. It’s in my blood.
Country boy at heart, the minute I saw her dragging her luggage up the gravel driveway I knew she was out of my league.
I shouldn’t have started anything with her, because I knew she was just passing through.
I couldn’t stop it, I fell in love with her. Even though I knew, in the end, she would leave me.

RELEASE DATE: April 14, 2020

“That mouth of yours is going to get you in a whole heap of trouble.”

-Casey

Not my first read by the author, she is one of my favorites! Also this NEW series is ‘Save a horse, ride a Cowboy’ amazing!! Prepare for your emotions to be on HIGH in this one! If you’ve read Book #1 you know that this one is about book 1’s brother (Casey) and her best friend (Olivia). It’s complicated to start with.

Olivia comes from a background where she was always told what, how and when to do ANYTHING. She never really had a remodel, especially her mother. When she met Book 1’s heroine, they became more than best friends. When she goes back to her best friends home town, she is met with the most handsome cowboy she has ever met. Casey, the brother she apparently was being held out on by her bestie. Olivia is a happy girl, she smiles often but that smile hides a lot. When running away from a problem it always seems to follow you, in this case not only her but she has put her best friends family in jeopardy. Thinking it’s all clear she plans well she has always planned to go back to the city, after-all she doesn’t know country living much. But that past may seem a lot harder to subdue then she thought.

Casey, I can’t tell you enough how much I LOVE HIM, seriously crush love him. He is broody, big, handsome, sexy, that accent and boots & stetson *swoon* all his life he has wanted one thing, and at one point in it he almost had it. Now that his sister is back in town and in tow with the sweet, beautiful, sassy and smart Olivia…his emotions are all over. When he offers her to stay with him, he wasn’t expecting anything but that. But Casey is a protector at nature, and even though he has his own daemons he is fighting, he knows that protecting her is a must. I gotta say that Casey is not your typical broken hero, it goes more and deeper than that. *sigh*

Both of these characters are complex in their own way but when together you can;t help but laugh along, smile or even tear up. Something about two broken souls coming together. I do really wish they talked to one another, their not sharing their feelings is on another level. But everything about this book and series so far is TOP for me, this book continues smoothly from the first one and is a lot more emotional in all the ways you want it to be. I laughed, smiled and cried in this one, and I can’t wait for more, which by the way is going to me amazing from the ending of this book. p.s. this is a sweet slow-burn & you get 2 epilogues *swoon*

“You’re never gonna be alone again, mam. Whatever comes, we handle it together. That’s how it works from her eon out.”

-Moses

Not my first read by the author and she is one of my top favorites! I also have read Book #1 which is a given since this is a duo BUT you never know hehe. That said, this was the conclusion OF MY LIFE, AN EPIC ONE!

I don’t want to give out too much since this is a dou and I don’t do spoilers. This anti-hero only continues with more action, suspense, romance, thriller and let’s not forget the swoning part…so so much!! The hero is more fiercely protective in this one, heroine is more brave more beautiful just more! Like I said in the first book, Meghan does not write bad characters, they are equally amazing in their own.

“Shut up and kiss me, woman. You win. I’ll quit fucking worrying.”

R E V I E W ➠ Amico by Evelyn Montgomery



GOODREADS AMAZON AUTHOR WEBSITE

Mia
I wanted to be alone. I didn’t need anyone. Never have, never will. Or so I thought.
Until an Italian God shows up, sweeps me off my feet, introduces me to his power. His control. His dominance.
He warned me about him. He told me to run.
But how do you leave someone who completes you? Who captivates you. Who makes you feel full when all you’ve ever felt is empty.
I wanted to be alone. But that was he took what he wanted, gave me what I craved and left me knowing I would never feel the same again. Not without him.
Leonardo
I’m used to keeping secrets. Used to not trusting anyone.
My day job keeps me hidden. My life a mystery most will never know.
But she bewitches me with her charm. She fascinates me with the way she shines so bright.
A light in a world full of darkness.
I seduce her for my pleasure. I want her only for one night.
But once you experience heaven, how can you ever come back to earth.
I’m used to keeping secrets. And now that she’s mine, I plan to enjoy her always and never let her go. 

RELEASE DATE: April 3, 2020

Not my first by the author & I happily designed this cover for Evelyn. This is a Dark Romance with a lot of twists and turns right from the start.

When the hero meets the heroine is him coming to her rescue, when the heroine realized that the most gorgeous man is talking to her but not taking her “home” something doesn’t add up. From then on there is a lot of twists that I was not prepared for or expected, maybe a little a lot of twists but this author is known for her suspense and action.
It does contain dark romance and BDSM.
