#Review – The Vernal Memory (The Variant Saga #4) by J.N. Chaney

The Vernal Memory

 

Everlasting is on the brink of total war. As the terrorist organization known as Garden attempts to assassinate key members of the Leadership, another unseen hand has plans of its own…

Back at the human outpost, Mei Curie and her team are working to create the ultimate cure for the Variant gas. But with the war raging deep within the city, the shield could collapse at any moment, killing millions. Time is of the essence.

Meanwhile, Terry waits beneath Everlasting, having been rescued by Garden’s forces. In an effort to repay this debt, he agrees to assist them in a dangerous task. With Lena Sol at his side, Terry sets out across the sea to a foreign land, seeking a prize that may very well end this conflict once and for all.

 

Goodreads

 

An outstanding conclusion to this series! Just wow! The rebellion has made themselves known to our Earthling characters. For me, I found trust and loyalty were major factors in the story in general. Once again I found this to get stronger throughout this story. Throw an intense amount of greed in there and you have the perfect twist to an amazing ending. Terry has set out to help Garden (the rebels) find a weapon to help stop the Leadership in Everlasting. John Finn (Terry’s best friend from Earth) is helping Everlasting to locate Garden to bring the rebel leader in. Mei Curie (our other Earth best friend) is working on locating a cure for the Variant air. When all of them end up on different sides of this war the rollercoaster of action and emotion get intense! All of our Earthlings have made special bonds and friendships with natives of Kant. This is a place of the impossible becoming possible. Curiosity and countering traditional thought is what brings this book out on top. The twists and turns in this story are more than enough to justify the late nights spent reading this series. Once again this author has given us another amazing story that makes this series absolutely extraordinary. Bravo!!

#Review – Forever Lost by @authMelodyAnne #Dark #Romance

51p8ifftdgl-_sy346_

Mary is gone … or so it seems. But nothing is ever that easy.

There is something about Dalton that calls to Elena, but she also knows he’s not who he appears to be. She resists him at the same time that she hungers for what only he can give her.

But just when Elena thinks her life has come together, that everything might be okay, her world falls apart again when she learns the truth of what really happened to her so many years before and learns of who so viciously betrayed her.

The only place left for Elena to go is back into Dalton’s arms. But he doesn’t want to hold her and tell her everything will be okay. He wants to teach her how to deal with the inner pain. And the way he teaches her is in a world she could never have imagined existed.

Will she let go … or will she become someone else.

This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Forever Lost by Melody Anne
Elena & Dalton
SHE’S GETTING THERE…
5 Stars

So, this is the follow up to Stolen Innocence. The first book was freaking amazing and FREE if you’re wondering. This installment shows us more of the Elena/Dalton dilemma and more to the point, how Elena is handling everything Dalton is throwing at her. You get ’em girl!

Elena was thoroughly pissing me off in this one. I mean how much does she intend to take? How many times can she be let down and go back for more? Apparently a lot! I still think she’s tough as nails, but when it comes to Dalton her body has a mind of it’s own. Backbone girl, get it!

Dalton is an asshole to say the least. I think he may be dealing with his own demons, but who cares…he could be nicer to our girl! I hate 90% of the shit he does to Elena in this one, but strangely I have high hopes for him.

Some new characters are introduced and I’m on the fence in if I like them or not. This Darcy, the one who Dalton seems to admire, she’s kind of scaring me a bit. We’ll see if she actually does Elena any good. Not holding my breath.

So, again, Melody gives us an Erotic story without any really bad words. The pacing is good, the storyline absurdly dark, and the characters are phenomenal. Diving into New Desires NOW!

#Review – Stolen Innocence by @authMelodyAnne #Dark #Romance

28794952

Every master was once a student – every woman was once a child …

What makes a person forget their entire identity? What makes them become someone else? What makes them desire pain … control … and ultimately pleasure? It’s not anything that happens overnight, over even in a few weeks. Tragedy beyond what a human can possibly imagine will forever alter Mary’s future.

Mary’s life is boring, conservative and typical. She wants adventure, thrills and so much more. But she will soon learn to be careful what to wish for when she’s taken against her will and thrust into the twisted world of a powerful man who doesn’t care if she lives or dies.

When Mary starts becoming Elena, she does find a savior, but is he truly the person who will protect her, or will he be the one to escort her straight into the pits of hell?

Forgetting who she is or where she belongs, she learns she can trust no one, rely on only herself, and fall further than she ever thought possible. She will become someone else and the cycle will begin. She will become the person who will eventually change the life of so many others. Some might say the change is good, the violence is necessary. And some will cry for this tragedy that should have been stopped.

Just when you think you know how it all came about, how it will end, you will be floored again by who can be trusted … and who can’t.

Note from the author:

This book isn’t anything like what I’ve written before. I had a dream, the opening scene of this book, actually. And I woke up and lay there for a while, and still couldn’t push it away, so I got up, wrote the first chapter. Then I lay back down and was back out of bed within fifteen minutes, where I gave up on sleep and sat at my computer all night and all the next day until my eyes wouldn’t stay open anymore. Then for the next week, all I did was eat and sleep (minimally) and the first draft was born. I was so emotionally drained from it, I put it away for a month, and then came back to it and went back into the world of Elena.

My question was, what makes someone enter into a lifestyle of BDSM? What makes them enjoy pain? Enjoy being degraded? Then I realized, it’s not a matter of enjoyment necessarily. It’s a matter of your world spinning out of control. And this is a way to ground yourself. Elena has become so special to me. The first book is tragic and I cried several times while writing it. The second book, she starts to find herself, and in the third book … well, the third book leaves your mouth hanging open. I hope you enjoy this journey with me. It’s been an emotional one.

This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Stolen Innocence by Melody Anne
SMOKIN’ HOT READ
5 STARS

So, this is one of those “dirty” Melody Anne books. She has a way of making them so freakin’ dirty without using any naughty words… seriously. I’ve never read any other author that can do that. It’s definitely for the 18+ crowd. I’m going to go as far as people with triggers from rape, abuse, and anything related, don’t read it! It’s unquestionably a dark, gritty read. So you people who one starred it because it was “too dark” and “degrading” Holy hell people, you were warned in the synopsis for cripesake… Does this ring a bell???????? “This book is intended for mature audiences only. There are explicit scenes of abuse, language and questionable sexual situations. Eighteen and older only. This story is about a woman so abused she turns into a person most wouldn’t even fathom becoming.” “Explicit scenes of abuse.” Duh… you no like dark, you no read book… but don’t read it when you knew it was dark then give it a bad review because you don’t like dark books… You people make my ass twitch!

Mary is you typical 16 going on 17 year old. She’s kidnapped and brainwashed to believe she’s Elena the sex slave. She’s one tough cookie and for good reason. The men “grooming” her for the Master are vicious to say the least. She learns quickly that keeping her mouth shut keeps her from getting beat.

I’m still not sure how much the other characters are going to play a part in the next installments so I won’t mention them. I will say this, not everyone is who them seem and I’ve deemed most untrustworthy. Be careful who you put your faith in.

This is a fast paced, action packed thriller that is extremely sinister. Mmmmm, my kind of book! It’s an extremely gripping story with powerful characters and boat loads of tension. This is not, I repeat NOT for the faint of heart. Onto the next book, Forever Lost

BETRAYAL 1One week. No future. No past. No more.

Alexandria Collins has one week to live carefree—no ghosts of her past or pressures of her future haunting her. Reinventing herself as “Charli,” she is knocked off her feet by a sexy, mysterious man who brings her pleasure like she never imagined. With her heart at stake, she forgets that decisions made in the dark of night reappear in the bright light of day.

“Some of my tastes are unique. They aren’t for everyone. I understand that.”

Lennox “Nox” Demetri is wealthy, confident, and decisive—he knows what he wants. From the first time he sees Charli at an exclusive resort, he knows he wants her. Although he is usually the one to make the rules, together they agree on one:

One week. No more.

When betrayal comes from those closest to Alexandria, she must decide how far she is willing to go to survive. Choices are not always easy, especially when they involve the heart, body, and soul. After all, Infidelity is a business, and some rules are meant to be broken.

Now, once again, the game has changed. Nox and Charli’s hot sensual encounter has grown into something more but it is threatened with secrets and regrets. Is it their love and intense sexual chemistry that’s pushing them together or something darker, a puppetmaster behind the scenes pulling the strings on their love affair?

Shadowy villains lurk around each corner and everyone is suspect as Nox’s and Charli’s pasts collide with the present and threaten to compel them back to their predestined fates.

Can deals brokered in the past be negated by something as pure as love and as steamy as the attraction shared by Nox and Charli? Or was it all a deception—starting with that very first meeting?

kellys review

Yes! More Skylar!!!! Skylar’s last adventure has left her stunned. She has been having nightmares and is having a hard time coping. But of course she won’t let anyone in on this. Now, she is sick. As if she wasn’t irritable before, she is now. Who doesn’t love Skylar when she is a little irritated. She finds out that the owner of her favorite Chinese restaurant is missing. She is freaking out because she has no clue where she is going to get her fried rice now. What a fiasco! Sick Skylar, no fried rice, and Aiden is being nice! Whatever is she going to do?!

Skylar is one of my favorite serials. Super snarky…sweet and sour, lol! Always. If you need a fun, fast read that will put a smile on your face, this is it! Keep it up Mariana Thorn! Skylar is the bomb!

 

about the author

7190519

If you look in the local coffee shop or bookstore you might just find Mariana Thorn. She can usually be found with headphones in and deep into the worlds she has created. There is this thing about her pens if you touch them you might receive a smack to the hand and the well-known glare of destruction.

As a child all her stories involved horses, horses and more horses. There might have been a slight obsession. Writing became more serious in her early twenties but she never dreamed of publishing until much later. Mariana participates yearly in the international event called NANOWRIMO. She has even been known as a Municipal Liaison for that crazy event. There is nothing like the feeling of encouraging other writers, she would say.

Outside of writing one of her favorite places to sit and read are the sunny beaches of Florida. At home in Washington State her favorite activity is riding horses up on the mountain trails. She has an awesome group of family and friends that keep her in coffee and encouragement. Then there is her best buddy Tony, her little dog. She suspects he will try and take over the world someday.

Twinsie Deb’s Review

Asking for More by Lilah Pace
Jonah & Vivienne Continued…
EH, IT’S SHORT AND OK. NOTHING NEW THOUGH
3.5 STARS

So, this is just a little novella that covers about the span of a week in the trials and tribulations of Jonah and Vivienne. You don’t really discover too much more than you already knew, but you do get to explore Jonah’s sister a little bit.

As far as Jonah and Viv go, they are still up to their “play” frolics and still have a fascination with that taboo subject! Although Viv get’s hurt AFTER one of their “play” sessions, whiney Jonah seems to get hung up on it a little too long especially since it was not even close to being his fault, but oh well! I think he’s more fucked up than we really know!

Viv is still a very carefree, happy-go-lucky kind of gal and I appreciate that about her. I mean if we had two head cases to deal with I think I might go mental. She sticks pretty close to Jonah, but in my opinion, not for herself, but for him. He seems to need that and her to stay on the right path.

Now Rebecca , Jonah’s sister is pretty damn cool. She lives in Central America by herself and doing fairly well. She’s spunky, witty, and about as open as Jonah… lol! I can’t help but wonder if there might be a longer story there. We’ll see!

So, it’s short, it’s fast, and it’s not really anything new besides more on the sister. The pacing is good, the storyline predictable, and the dialogue somewhat natural. I liked it, but did not love it!

She’s addicted to Diet Coke, loves her dog, and daydreams about several British movie stars (though usually no more than two at a time).

kellys review

A badass female assassin and a hot detective….Need I say more?

Chloe is an assassin with a conciensce. She is a strong independent woman who loves her job and is not looking to settle down anytime soon. Damon is a hot detective that has been investigating murders of some pretty shady people. Chloe’s and Damon’s personal lives cross with what ends up being a one night stand. They can’t seem to stay away from each other and end up bumping into each other again. The connection they have is extremely strong and they can’t keep their hands to themselves. Soon Damon starts putting bits and pieces of his puzzles together and Chloe seems to be in the mix.

“She was still a little in shock that Damon was a Detective. That wasn’t smart on her part. Never get involved with the police if you commit murder on a daily basis.”

This is a fast paced, witty, steamy, and action packed story. An absolute page turner! Looking forward to their story being continued!

about-the-author

I  currently live in Charleston, WV with my two beautiful children. I do work a full time job and I have a passion for writing. My only hobby is reading.

I have been working on my first book for some time now, but I am finally making that leap. I have many stories that I want to put to paper and hopefully you all will follow me on my journey.

I like to write whatever is on my mind but I like to explore with my writing. I like to have my books feel like your inside them as the actual characters. I like my characters to be strong. Sex is important between loving people therefore all my books contain graphic scenes but are not classified as erotica. The character’s themselves have more basis.

Cover Reveal: The Devil’s Wife by Gemma James

the devils wife

No one claims marriage is easy. That is especially true for Kayla Sutton, because she’s married to a sadist who takes the meaning of the word “dominance” to new heights.

But Kayla should have known. She fell for his wicked ways after he blackmailed her, stayed after he kidnapped her, went back to him after he almost destroyed them both with his unpredictable fury.

Then she married him.

A year has passed since Kayla agreed to love, honor, and obey. Day after day, she survives his volatile nature. On her knees at his feet, underneath him between the sheets, bent over the bed to receive the fiery lash of his belt. But she’s beginning to miss the one thing she promised Gage Channing when she married him: her freedom.

NOTE TO READERS: The Devil’s Wife is a continuation of The Devil’s Kiss series. For a better reading experience, please begin with the Devil’s Kiss before reading the Devil’s Wife. For mature audiences only. Includes explicit and disturbing subject matter that may offend some readers.
