I’ve had this book on my kindle for a long time now. I saw the paperback at an airport during my travels but completely forgot I had purchased the ebook until I was looking through my list of books that I haven’t read yet.
After finishing my last book, I decided to open this one up and I have not felt this consumed by a story in…well…in forever. It has taken me on a journey, one that I’m thankful I’ve never had to experience in real life.
This book is about a girl who was kidnapped at the age of 15 and abused for 13 years. This is NOT a romance. Not in the least. It’s based on true events and guys, it hurts. It hurts so freaking much. I had to take a break after every chapter.
I’m a romance reader. I will always be a romance reader. I love my horror and darker reads as well. Dark romance is one of my favourite things to write but reading it, knowing that it actually happened to some poor little girl or that it happens every day…it was the hardest book I have read in quite a long time. Maybe ever.
If you love to read books based on true events, then I highly suggest this one. But please be warned, bad things happen. Awful, unspeakable things happen. But I think everyone needs to know this little girl’s story.
Well this anthology is definitely not for the faint of heart. While I was one of the contributing authors, I decided to read the rest of the stories and wow. Just wow. I gasped so many times, I lost count. I’m a huge fan of horror movies and I love horror stories just as much but these stories blew me away.
If you love horror stories, this is definitely the anthology for you! I even messaged Emery LeeAnn after finishing her story, Stella, and asked her for more. If you loved the movie, “I Spit On Your Grave”, you’ll like this little book.
These stories are gruesome and have people getting revenge in the most depraved way possible.
Enjoy and happy reading! Oh and don’t forget to turn on the lights.
Well this story was fun! I was looking for something short and hot to read. So I went through my list of favourite authors who write the shorties and came across this one. And it’s a menage! Even better!
The Cortez men were on fire! They grew up together and end up being business partners as well but they were missing something. A woman.
Stella was desperate to make ends meet when it came to her father. Having a gambling problem led his daughter to the two men who swore to do anything and everything to have her between them. Literally.
This story is book one in the Mistress Auctions series. It’s fun, short, and spicy! Perfect for nights where you just want to curl up with a glass of wine and disappear into another world for a bit.
She was young.
But then there was him.
We had been best friends for years. We lived together. Rode together. Shared women.
Together. And it still wasn’t enough. Not for him and especially not for me.
He was mine.
I was his.
She was ours.
Meadow Rodriguez strutted into our lives and looked at us like we were all that mattered.
While I wanted to dominate her, he wanted to submit, and she wanted both.I took control, giving her everything she needed and at the same time, grew closer with Shade. My best friend. My partner. My life. Although we were close, there was still a wedge between us.
I was terrified to give him what he needed.
Sunny was intense.
I was new.
They were in love but wouldn’t admit it.
Guilt resonated on Sunny’s shoulders.
The weight of Shade’s feelings rested on his.
And I was the glue that would bring them together.
But little did I know, that I would end up falling in love.
With both of them.

I’m a huge fan of the taboo, the forbidden. The whole “I want her/him but I shouldn’t”. It’s delicious and exciting. We first meet Leia and Sy when she’s nothing more than a mere child. Thirteen to be exact. When they first meet, the tension and attraction is off the charts. It seeped through the pages and hits you right in the pit of your gut. But you know that she’s too young. He’s too old. But it doesn’t stop the attraction there. Leia becomes older. But that age difference will always be there. The attraction grows until neither of them can control their undying need for each other. The chemistry is hot. Like insanely hot. It starts as a slow flame until the end of the book when it finally bursts into a raging inferno. This is the first book to a series. There’s secrets, passion, drama, a triangle of sorts and more. If taboo stories are your thing, then this series is definitely for you.
I knew going in that this book would be brutal. But I had no idea just how much. Inhale, Exhale was rough. I wanted to bash some character’s heads in and then some. My heart hurt for Lo, Toby and yes, even Jase. But Breathe…Cassie, you upped your game with this one. While this only the second book I’ve read of hers, it definitely won’t be the last.
Breathe…man, I don’t even have any words really to describe the pain in this book. The ache, the broken characters striving for that certain thing they’re missing. I’m not an emotional reader. At all. But there’s just something about Cassie’s writing that hits home with me. There were parts of this book that I had to read quickly due to them affecting me on a personal level. I can’t gush enough about this book/series.
Toby…oh my boy. He’s so broken and tortured. After a misunderstanding, everything goes down hill from there. It’s just heartbreaking.
If you love books with an age gap, angst – so much freaking angst -, pain and love and everything else, you have to grab this series.
Let me start by saying that reading the sweeter and less dirty books sometimes, is a nice change.
Now for my review. So…Linc is a professional swimmer. Athletic, good looking, has all the friends and gets all the girls. Oh and he comes from money too. Alexis on the other hand is none of those things. She plus-sized and closed off. Especially when Linc starts to show interest in her. I mean, after years of being talked down, made fun of and so on, who wouldn’t shut down and put up walls to protect their heart?
Man, did I ever feel for Alexis. Linc…at times I wanted to slap him but at the same time, I got it. These feelings were new for him. What I loved most about him was that he didn’t care about Alexis’s size. He could have stood up for her a little better – he even noticed that he made some mistakes in that department – with his mother who I loathe by the way and with his friends. Harrison. That boy drove me nuts and I wanted to punch him in the face. And his mother??? These people not being supportive of Linc and his feelings for Alexis, drove me crazy. Good job on that part, Alexandria!
As I was nearing the end of the book, I was on the edge of my seat. I was hoping and chomping at the bit for their happily ever after. Do they get it? I guess you’ll have to one-click to find out!
I’m usually a romance girl. It’s been my genre and go-to ever since I was a teen sneaking those “dirty” Harlequin romance books when my parents weren’t looking. Well sometimes, we need a break and a change from what we’re normally used to.
Besides romance books, I LOVE horror movies but I don’t usually read horror novels. I’ve read a few and have loved them but if you put a romance and a horror in front of me, I would probably always grab the romance.
Well I am glad that I gave this little story a chance!
Pam and Dave are hand’s down two of the best characters I have ever read. Their banter back and forth – they’ve been married for years – is hilarious. But while this little story is jam packed with humor, there’s also a serious side to it as well. I went into this story completely blind. I didn’t read the blurb ahead of time and I’m glad I decided to go that route!
This is book 1 to the F*cked Series and I already picked up book 2. I can’t wait to see what else happens to Pam, Dave and their kids while the world is…uh…dealing with the same unusual changes.
P.S. The texting scenes in this book had me dying. RK included the auto correct fails and it was beyond epic!
This book was simply adorable and sweet. I usually go for the smutty and sexy books but I have to say that this is one of my favourite little reads.
Caroline and Colin end up meeting at an airport while they’re trying to make their way home to their families. Well insert a random guy asking a random girl to be his fake girlfriend to bring home to his parents and the rest is history.
I enjoyed every side character and they’re respective role in the story.
Colin is sweet and caring and Caroline is feisty and fits in perfectly with his family. This story was shorter but perfect.
If you want a swoon-worthy read for the holidays, pick this one up!
