#WOTR21 #Dark – Love in the Dark Series book 1 & 2 by Chelsea Camaron

Stay (Love in the Dark Book 1)
Seeking Solace: Angelina's Restoration (Love in the Dark Book 2)
Stay –
Fair Warning … This isn’t a sappy romance. It’s not sweet. It’s far from anything you would want to imagine. This is a story to leave you feeling dirty.
 
Nothing about us is normal.
Nothing about us is natural.
 
Can love ultimately be defined in such ways, truly? This is our story.
 
He is a hitman. The very one who took my family the night that changed us both forever. Something in my eyes stopped him from killing me. Something in my eyes called out for him to take me.
 
At ten he captured me, at fifteen he consumed me, and at eighteen he owned me.
 
Outsiders think he’s my father … that is so far from the truth.
 
Our twisted desires fuel the darkness that lies deep inside us both. My innocence never existed. He takes me as I am.
Seeking Solace –
The fork in the road in front of me screamed go right …

Giano gave me life.
I gave him death.

The path to peace inside of me was covered in his blood.

Could I ever believe in love again?

Instead of going right, though, I veered left into the depths of a world unknown.

Stay Review by Angie –

It is dirty, wrong and yet sooo perfect!!!

The ending will gut you so be ready!!

I am pretty sure I shouty caps emailed Chelsea about this book!!! ANNND more then once!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion.

*wipes the tears* WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY!! I mean WHHHHHHHHHHHHHY did you do this to me Chelsea Babe!!! OMG This is a whole new level of writing for Chelsea. I love her Hellions, Smoker Jumpers and bar guys but Giano is a whole lotta perfect wrong????

This book jumps right outta the gate into wrong wrong wrong territory!!

Fallyn is enduring what she does nightly when all of a sudden a man appears and saves her. The why of it doesn’t become clear until much much much later.
Fallyn is so confused. Why is she here and who this man who is caring for her. When she starts a conversation with the stranger, she is soon told what she is expected to do. She is expected to live. She is expected to thrive and she is expected to not take life for granted. We learn that she can’t be Fallyn but will now be Angelina AKA Angel to our stranger AKA Giano. The two form a strange bond. He is wanting to help her and she is wanting to have a real life. They begin to navigate life when she finds out who Angelina really is. The bond that they share is unique. They become a strange “family” unit. Dad and child but always knowing that is far from the truth.

Fallyn has to learn to navigate life as Angel. She begins to have a life but in high school Giano’s “work” catches up to him and causes some trouble for Angel. This then makes Angel wonder about her REAL family. Where are they? Are the dead? Are they alive?

As time goes on we see some sparks between Giano and Angel. She is growing more and more attached to this savior and he is more and more attached to his Angel…..the then girl now woman who saved him. The two have a very twisted and gritty life but after 8 years together something happen and the relationship is now shifted and forever changed…….

For me BOTH Epilogues helped my heart. I love the need Fallyn has but I understand the emotion that Angel expresses…….I Kinda liked Fallyn a little it more buuut that was my black heart at work there!!

Seeking Solace Review –

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I was a HUGE fan of Stay. If you haven’t read it, you need to stop and read that story first. You have to read it in order to understand what is going on in the series.

This book takes placed right after *sniff* Giano’s death. I am still so sad about that yet Chelsea still says it had to happen….sigh…anyway, Angelina is a mess. She is guilt and hurt and sad and lonely and just A MESS!! She misses Giano with everything she is. She has Uncle ZoZo there to help her pick up the pieces but its just not enough.

After his death, she packs up and goes to college to try and move on with her life. She meets and falls in love with Shawn who also has ties to “The Families.” No matter, we see her thriving and mostly learning to love and trust……However, Angelina soon learns that the “PAST” Giano tried to shelter her from is not gone. Her past is going to come back to haunt her and her new love.

I am so excited to see the final installment. Fallyn returns to kick some ass. Angelina is the sweet face to our girl but when Fallyn comes out to play, ya’ll better be ready. She is not happy and she is going to be leaving a trail of blood in her wake!!!

Bought (The Owned Series Book 1)

Hannah
There are no good men, only bad ones. The men from my past have proven this time and time again. I have no reason to think this one will be any different. One minute, I’m having dinner with my father and the next, I’m locked in a dark room waiting to be sold to the highest bidder. I can only imagine what kind of hell my life is about to become.

Reed
I am what I am. A sadist with a soul as dark as night. I’ve accepted this long ago. I wasn’t always like this. A man can only see so much evil until it changes him, haunts him, and clouds the way he views the world. I swore to never let anyone get close to me, but there’s something about Hannah. She intrigued me. I wanted her. I needed to know what lies beyond that broken spirit. I had to have her…so I bought her.

Bought is book number 1 in The Owned Series. It does end on a light cliffhanger but I promise it is SO worth it! As a special thank you, I’m including bonus content that will only be available during launch week! Enjoy!

#WOTR #AttendingAuthor #SeriesStarter Angel’s Collar (Love Strictly Tested 1) by Anna Hague


I have it all…until he shows me more.

I didn’t intentionally spill wine all over the most beautiful guy in the room, and one look at those icy-blue eyes brings on a major lapse in coherent speech. Jordan Caldera tells me his secret and wants me to join him. This is where my journey into submission begins.

So much about BDSM freaks me out, but at the same time, I can’t help but be intrigued. When I imagine Jordan doing those things to me, I can’t resist the adventure. Mind-blowing sex aside, my life is changing at an alarming rate and getting very complicated. Between balancing my career and my best friend’s concerns, the secrets I’m keeping are killing me.

What am I willing to risk for the new lifestyle I’ve embraced…and the man I love?

I bought this book and this is my honest opinion

Well when i first even this book was about BDSM i was t hinking crazy see scenes whips, chains and floggers but even though this book has that its actually a very beautiful story about finding yourself and trusting your partner in your relationship. Emma ‘Angel’ found herself in a a hotel suite in a wig colored contacts, and sitting in front of a reporter telling her life story about how she ended up in the BDSM lifestyle and why she lets her husband put a collar on her. Emma and Jordan met at a gala and it was basically love at first site, next thing you know they are engaged and next thing Emma knows Jordan is telling her that he use to belong in a BDSM group and  wanted to get back into the lifestyle with her and that it would be her choice. After much research and crazy things that Jordan didn’t approve of Emma agreed to give this life style a try. Well with tons of ups, downs and being tied up these two have gone through a lot as a couple. This was such a good story of how these two feel in love with a different type of bedroom games they played.

For 25 years, I’ve worked as a sports writer. I decided now was the time to pursue romance fiction as an author. I found a great group of RWA author friends who have helped me tremendously.

I get great support from my husband, and although they don’t know it, my three parrots and dog give me a huge boost everyday.

#TwiniseDee #Review Still (Grip Book #3) by Kennedy Ryan

I’ll be there.

Through thick and thin.

Ride or die.

You can count on me.

The promises people make. The vows we take.

Assumptions of the heart.

Emotion tells us how we feel, but life… life has a way of plunging us in boiling water, burning away our illusions, testing our faith, trying our convictions.

Love floating is a butterfly, but love tested is an anchor.

For Grip and Bristol

Love started at the top of the world

On a Ferris wheel under the stars

But when that love is tested, will they fly or fall?

*STILL is the conclusion of Grip & Bristol’s emotional journey. You must read FLOW, available for FREE, and GRIP before beginning STILL.*

#TwiniseDee #Review Grip (Grip Book #2 ) by Kennedy Ryan

Resisting an irresistible force wears you down and turns you out. I know. I’ve been doing it for years.

I may not have a musical gift of my own, but I’ve got a nose for talent and an eye for the extraordinary. And Marlon James – Grip to his fans – is nothing short of extraordinary.

Years ago, we strung together a few magical nights, but I keep those memories in a locked drawer and I’ve thrown away the key. All that’s left is friendship and work.

He’s on the verge of unimaginable fame, all his dreams poised to come true. I manage his career, but I can’t seem to manage my heart.

It’s wild, reckless, disobedient. And it remembers all the things I want to forget.
