5 Stars

Pepper Winters has well and truly nailed it with a fantastic conclusion to the Dollars series. What a journey she has taken us on, with the end of every book leaving us hanging on, waiting with baited breath to find out what was going to happen next. With the start of each book we have been woven further and further into the lives of Elder and Pim as they both grow and evolve through each page. Millions brings it all together in a shattering final instalment that will take you on one hell of a rollercoaster ride.

Picking up right from where the last book left off, Pim has been taken again but this time by the man we know and love as Q who believes he is rescuing her from her captor. Elder has been left for dead, shot, beaten and floating in the water but what we know about him should make you realise that not even this is going to keep him from getting her back. With the Chinmoku also breathing down his neck and the time to defeat them drawing nearer and nearer this book was always going to keep you on the edge of your seat

Throughout this series we have seen Pim thrive and grow from the scared and mute girl to a woman with strength and determination that knows no bounds. Elder had his own demons which he has been fighting since he was a child and we have watched him continue to battle with them further through each book but with Millions we really begin to see his passion for the woman he loves and what he will do in order to protect her and get the HEA that they both deserve

A love story with a difference, one that follows anything but a traditional path but is still full of such intense passion and emotions. With each new series that Pepper writes she cements herself further and further as one of my favourite authors. The quality of her writing immerses you in her stories as they weave there way into your very soul as you live and breath every page along with her characters. An epic and fitting conclusion to another amazing series and worthy of more than the 5 stars on offer.

El Santo by M Robinson is now LIVE – Blog Tour & Review

EL SANTO BLOG TOUR
FROM USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR M. ROBINSON

I didn’t know darkness and evil lurked inside me until I had to murder in order to survive. Forced to become my own worst enemy. With so much blood on my hands, I was surprised I could still see my own skin.

I killed.

I tortured.

I loved
I played God while I was rotting in Hell. Thriving on control and power was the only way I knew how to live. There were no other options.

If you weren’tt my friend, you were my foe.

If you weren’tt with me, you were against me.

Traitors, as I called them. There were no imaginary lines. I’d crossed them all. No boundaries. No second chances. No redemption.

Not for me.

For them.

For anyone.

Only for her

She loved me. Always convinced I was a saint, never believing I was just another sinner.

A fucking monster.

Until it was too late.

Except, I didn’t  choose this life.

It. Chose. Me.

5 Stars

This was a really intense book right from the start. If you have ever read an M Robinson book before then you have some idea of what you are in for but nothing prepared me for how this began, scenes that left me squirming almost too afraid to read on but also unable to put it down.

Damien and Amira’s story is no typical love story. Thrown together at the darkest point in their lives, Amira watches her family brutalised and slain by Emilio Salazar’s men whilst this is the night that Damien finally surrenders himself to the cruelty and evil that goes with being one of Salazar’s men. Ordered to kill Amira, Damien can’t go through with it and instead goes back for her later and hides her away from Emilio.

There are certainly two sides to Damien, he will do everything in his power to protect Amira, the only time you witness a softer side to him but he is also cruel, brutal and evil in his relentless following of Emilio Salazar executing his demands without question. Amira however, hero worships him – the man who saved her, gave her the life she has. Over time this turns into love but the older she gets the more Damien pushes her away, he can’t have feelings for her, can’t leave himself open to any weakness.

Monica never fails to deliver in my eyes. This book captivated me hook, line and sinker and i experienced all manner of feelings whilst reading. Damien is most certainly the man you will love to hate – i think i hated him more than i loved him but knowing Monica’s writing, i am pretty sure that will soon change as she drags me back through the mill with book two. Well done Monica, another triumph.

Meghan March: Defiant Queen Blog Tour & Review

The Mount Trilogy continues with

Defiant Queen…

I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.

I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?

They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.

But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.

I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.

I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.

But he has other plans . . .

Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira’s story concludes in Sinful Empire.

5 Freaking Awesome Stars!!!

Omg where do I start! Meghan is just truly surpassing herself here. She just gets better and better!

The book obviously starts off where the first book ended. My heart was in my throat waiting to see the outcome of that.

In this instalment we get to learn more about Mount and Keira. We really get inside of Mounts head more than in the first book. Mount is still his usual overbearing alpha male self, but the more you learn about him, the more you just love him!

Keira I just generally love full stop. She is such a strong willed woman with lots of sass, she certainly keeps Mount on his toes.

Of course this is a trilogy so I was expecting another cliffhanger like the last, but OMFG!!!! That ending!!!! I need Sinful Empire like now! I think my neighbours may have heard me yelling at my kindle when I finished the book.

On a serious note, do not let the fact these have cliffhangers put you off! These books are SO worth the wait, I’m just really impatient that’s all lol. Another fantastic read fro Meghan and I am dying to find out how it all ends!

Get ready for the darker and dirtier side of New Orleans with a brand new alpha romance from USA Today bestselling author Meghan March.

New Orleans belongs to me.
You don’t know my name, but I control everything you see—and all the things you don’t.
My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met.
I didn’t need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt.
To have her in my debt.
She doesn’t know she caught my attention.
She should’ve been more careful.
I’m going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her.
It’s time to collect what I’m owed.
Keira Kilgore, you’re now the property of Lachlan Mount.

*Ruthless King is book one of the Mount Trilogy*

Vi Keeland: Sex, Not Love Cover Reveal

We are thrilled to bring you the next standalone novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Vi Keeland. SEX, NOT LOVE will release on January 15th, 2018

Model: Fabian Castro
Photographer: Rafael Catala
Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

R.S. Grey: The Fortunate Ones Release Day Blitz & Review 

R.S. Grey’s next romantic comedy, THE FORTUNATE ONES, is available now! Read a sneak peek below and be sure to pick up your copy today!

 

About THE FORTUNATE ONES

At Twin Oaks Country Club, there are the fortunate ones, and then there are the rest of us: the waiters, the caddies, the valets, and in my case, the cabana girls. Most days, I’m poolside in a pleated skirt, dishing out margaritas to tycoons and titans. It’s not exactly my dream job, but it does come with one perk…

James Ashwood.

He’s my silver lining in a custom black suit.

Besides being a legacy member at the club, he’s a tech mogul and Austin’s most eligible bachelor. Oh, and those dimples? Yeah, they make my stomach dip too.

On good days, I catch his sleek Porsche winding down the tree-lined drive. On better days, I steal a glimpse of his handsome profile as we pass in the hall. And on the absolute best day, I find him alone at the bar, looking for company.

“Come have a seat.”

Those four little words set me down a path I never could have imagined. Private planes, penthouse suites, and temptations around every corner make it impossible to keep my distance. His world feels decadent and wild–but overindulgence comes with a cost. Every kiss comes with strings. Every erotic encounter is a promise I’m not ready to keep.

When I pump the brakes, he hits the gas. James doesn’t want to go slow–he wants a commitment.

And the thing about the fortunate ones?

They’re used to getting what they want.

Add THE FORTUNATE ONES to your Goodreads list here!

Get your hands on THE FORTUNATE ONES now!

 

4 Stars 
I’m a huge fan of Rachel’s books so after reading the blurb to this I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and devour every word. 

Devour is what I certainly did! 

The initial meeting of Brooke and James had me turning the pages. James is most definitely, I’m my book swoon worthy material. He comes cross a little arrogant at first, but once you get to know the true James, you can’t help but fall for him.

Now Brooke, I wanted to love her character I really did. At times I did really relate to her and loved her spunk and sense of humour. But other times I just wanted to smack some sense into her! It might just be me, but that’s how she made me feel lol. 

But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t thoroughly enjoy reading the book. In fact it was the opposite. I’m secretly hoping that Rachel may write some books for the secondary characters in the book. Another great read from Rachel that you should most definitely one click! 

Get a Sneak Peek of THE FORTUNATE ONES:

“I missed you today,” he says, his heated gaze lingering on my body.

I step back, and he follows.

He looks like he’s cornering his prey.

“Apparently not enough to make it to dinner,” I point out icily.

“I called the restaurant and told them I’d be late. Didn’t they tell you?”

I cross my arms and glance away.

“Brooke.” He steps closer and gently lifts my chin, forcing me to look back at him. “Fight with me tomorrow.”

I narrow my eyes, angry with him for shelving this discussion so casually. To him, it doesn’t matter that I sat in that restaurant alone, looking like a fool for nearly two hours. He’s brushing off my anger, stepping closer and forcing his way past my defenses.

“I think I’d like to talk about it now.”

I catch the beginning of a smirk just before he leans in to kiss my cheek.

“Are you sure there isn’t anything you’d rather be doing right now?”

He uncrosses my arms and brings them up over his shoulders then steps closer, towering over me. My arms tighten around his neck, but still, I turn away, keeping my mouth from him. His breath hits my neck and he pulls me taut against his hard body, growing more impatient with every moment I try to resist.

“Brooke,” he whispers huskily.

My eyes flutter closed as he bends and presses a kiss to my cheek, my chin, then lower, tipping my head back so he can reach the smooth recess at the nape of my neck. I shiver and he groans, obviously aware of what his touch is doing to me.

Cuffed by K Bromberg is now LIVE – Review

From the New York Times bestselling author, K. Bromberg, comes a new series about three brothers, the job that calls them, and the women who challenge them.

CUFFED_K_BROMBERG

“I hate you. I never want to see you again.”

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville—at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade, ring in my ears every time a townsperson brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again.

Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons—sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer. But Grant is off limits because he knows too much about my past.

But I’m drawn to him. That damn uniform of his doesn’t hurt either. It’ll be my downfall. I know it.

What’s one night of sex going to hurt . . . right?

***

I’ve always loved Emmy Reeves.

That’s why I’m shocked to see her all these years later. The shy girl I once knew is all grown up.

Adventurous and full of life, she owns my heart now, just as much as she did back then. Convincing her of that is a whole different story.

I’ll give her the one night she asks for—like that’s a hardship—but when it comes to letting her walk away after, she has another thing coming. There’s no way in hell I’m letting her go this time without a fight.

 Anne’s Review 🌺

 5 Stars 

Wow, I should have known that a K Bromberg book would be the way to get me out of a book funk and get me out of it Cuffed most certainly did. This book is so much more than a second chance romance, it is the story of two best friends who separated at the age of 8, find their way back to each other some 20 years later.

Emerson “Emmy” Reeves has been a gypsy for the last 20 years, moving from place to place, never putting down roots or staying too long. Sky diving is her life, the only thing that brings her some sense of peace, quiets the noises in her head caused by the nightmares from her past. Returning back to her childhood home after so many years away was always going to be difficult but when she comes face to face with Grant Malone, her childhood best friend, the boy she threatened to hate forever, her past comes crashing into the present.

Grant Malone, son of ex chief of police, has followed in his fathers footsteps, joining the force. He has always wanted to be a hero, a fixer and he has missed his best friend since she left telling him she hated him. Shocked to find Emmy back, Grant is determined to make up for telling her secret, betraying her trust. He loves her, he always has, he just needs to convince her of that.

I loved Emmy, she had been through so much in her life. Spending her time chasing away the nightmares, seeing Grant again has brought it all flooding back. The chemistry between them is intense and at first Emmy doesn’t know how to handle it and a struggle ensures with Grant determined to not let her go again.

Kristy did not hold back with this book. It was an incredibly emotional love story but also the story of a woman fighting to regain her life, to start living again and put the past well and truly where it should be, in the past. Add to this, a man who will do just about anything to make this happen and you have one hell of a second chance at friendship, of love and at living. Head up, Wings out, this is another fantastic book from Kristy and i can’t wait to meet the next Malone brother.

B.J. Harvey: One Shot Cover Reveal 

Title: One Shot
Series: Chances #1
Author: BJ Harvey
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 16, 2017
Boy meets girl, boy wins girl, boy nails girl—boy’s gone by morning.

I think for sure it must’ve been a dream because there’s no way a guy could look like that, touch me like that and be so in tune with me on every known level, and disappear, leaving me with nothing but a good story to tell my friends.
When he walks into my bar three months later, everything I thought I knew and what we’d had disappears in the blink of an eye and the blinding light of the three-carat diamond on his fiancée’s hand.
It seems what I thought was a dream is now my most complicated reality, and I’ve got absolutely no idea how to fix it – or if I even want to.

I rush out from behind the bar and through the swinging door. I’m almost at the end of the corridor when the door opens behind me and I freeze. My chest tightens, because if it’s either of the two men I think it could be, there’s no way this will end well.
He comes closer, each step like an echo matching the impending doom I feel in my gut.
“I got your message.”
“Good,” I reply, fighting every urge I have to turn toward him.
“And you were right. You do deserve better.”
“I do.”
“I hate the thought of him touching you.”
I gasp, my mouth dropping open at his admission.
“I’ve known him for thirteen years. He’s supposed to be my best man. I love him like a brother but I hate him touching you.”
Oh no he didn’t. I spin around and come face to face with Millen, his face tight, his arms crossed over his chest. “What?” I spit out.
“It’s not right. I love him like a brother and I want him happy. Just not happy with you. Especially not happy touching you.”
“How dare you?” I grind out, my jaw so rigid my face hurts.
“I hate seeing you with anyone that’s not me.”
My eyes bug out, completely dumbfounded. He’s crazy if he thinks he has any say in who I see.
“You’re a joke,” I spit out, the blood simmering in my veins now boiling over. Lifting my hand up, I poke my finger hard into his chest. “You’re the one with the problem. It’s was you who came up to me. You that lied and said you were single.” My voice threatens to break but I power through it. “You made me become the one thing I never wanted to be—the other woman. And to her. You’re such a fucking ass—”
The rest of the word gets stuck in my throat when he wraps his hand around my neck and crashes his mouth into mine. His body crushes me into the wall as he kisses the shit out of me. And—dammit—it’s a good kiss—a scorching-hot, never-to-be-the-same-again kiss.
I tear my lips free and shove him back. I step forward, and my hand darts up. With a resounding crack, I slap him across the face.

“A big group just came in and the girls are getting slammed,” he says, his jaw set tight.
I move toward him. “It’s not

You know, the woman you should be kissing.” With that, he turns and slaps his palm against the door, swinging it open and stalking out without another word.
