#WOTR19 – #Review – Last Breath by Kerri Ann

 

Last Breath

 

Appearing on my doorstep, covered in the darkest blood and seeping death from their pores, I immediately knew they were dangerous men.
Though I wasn’t afraid; I was excited. Their beauty was in their madness. They were my release from this life.

As the only caregiver to my dementia-clouded, hateful grandmother, my life had become stagnant. There’s been no great love story, no fun, no excitement, and only a regimented routine to keep what’s left of my sanity intact.

Maybe sanity is overrated?

I dreamt of having that great love of a lifetime. I dreamt of more than this life. They’re showing me there’s more to this world.
That not all love is sweet.
I don’t need roses or sweet words.
Death I’ve found can be sweeter.

Salem and Malachi mean more to me than my next breath.

 

Goodreads

 

Oh holy…..I just don’t even know how to finish this sentence. It’s so dark and twisted, beautifully evil….SOUL TORTURING! I swear this author is a lunatic!!!! We start with Salem and Malachi. They run away to leave an evil behind that Salem was subject to. Salem the tinder and Malachi the match. These two thrive on each other. Dangerous, dark, thick, and absolutely sinister. These two are looking for a place to crash after one of their “indiscretions” with a murder. They run across Joy and her grandmother who has dementia. The guys more or less push themselves into Joy’s home but she doesn’t exactly make them leave. They are dark, mysterious, and intriguing. They all have something about them that they are all drawn to. They are pulled together like magnets, like gravity. They all feed off of each other’s darknesses. At first they murder or kill when there is a reason. The bad people that hurt others that run into this trio has hell to pay. Again, it starts off as more of a retribution type of thing but turns into something much darker and more sinister. These characters are CRAZY! But completely normal to each other. Their love for each other is undeniable, but again, lord help whoever crosses their path because they take their love to entire different level. There’s sex, gore, love, twists, gut punches, throat slices, torturing….it is a maddening mindfuck! Stop listening to me ramble and just go pick it up and read it….you won’t be sorry….or will you? Muwahahahahaha!!!

Dark, light, angsty, sexually charged and twisted.

Heart wrenching stories are what I love to write. The muse directs the story. I’m the instrument of their lives.

I won’t guarantee an HEA or HFN, because life doesn’t have those.

Enjoy the OMG’s and tears.

#NewRelease – #Review – Beacons in the End (The End Saga #3) by C.L. Zelle

Beacons in the End (The End Saga #3)

 

Book Three in the Post-Apocalyptic Dystopian Epic The End Saga.

I’m alive.
Gideon’s out there somewhere with Missy, looking for me. The monsters are evolving, but we are, too. We’ve come so far, survived the miraculous, defeated the evils that have tried to keep us from each other, and we’ll do it again.
We’re alive, and that’s a good start.
Strange, how finding each other in a dead world full of rabid predators with no cell service is the easy part. The hard part is what comes after. What will happen now that Gideon knows my truths? What will happen when he tells me his? Will we get our second chance? Will we have our happily ever after?
Things won’t be perfect when we reunite, we’ll have obstacles to overcome. But I believe in Gideon, I believe in us. We’ve found each other in this world twice before, and we will again. I just hope we can figure out what to do . . . next. To make things right again.

* * *

I won the first round, but this game isn’t over yet—it’s only just begun. There’s a stopwatch ticking somewhere, and the cool barrel of a nine against my temple says it’s go-time, there’s no backing down now.
It’s too quiet—as if somebody set the world on “peaceful” mode for a while. But I know better than to get too comfortable. There’s always been more to Vine’s games than meets the eye.
Time to level-up.
L1: Keep Missy safe
L2: Find Grace
L3: Protect the people I love
L4: Get that plane and get the f*ck out of Dodge
L5: Heal mankind
All in a day’s work on the Bright Side, right?

*****

This is the third book in The End Saga. This series will appeal to those who don’t mind some diverse adult content in their reading. Due to certain triggers, this series may not be suitable for everyone, and is advised for ages 18 and up.

 

Goodreads

 

“To know who you are now, you have to remember how you became.” THIS!!! This is the perfect line for this book! This is the perfect line for life! This series is EPIC! The author writes very passionately, heartfelt and super fierce. This isn’t a zombie book. This is so much more! Every emotion whether it is something funny, scary, amorous….every single emotion is felt down to your core. Oh the feels!!!! Be prepared because it is beautiful and gritty and pure raw! Intense just does not do this book…or the series….justice.

Both of our groups are now on the run. Both groups have taken on others to care for…a lot of children! Now they are racing for survival. Grace and Logan are with one group and Gideon is with the other group. Grace and Gideon are so in sync that they just know exactly how to send the beacon to each other. Here is your spoiler….yes, the groups find each other. But they don’t find each other without some crazy scary situations ahead of them. Grace and Gideon were made for each other but they both have indiscretions that they don’t think the other will forgive them for. Nothing is perfect but this is The End afterall. Does everything have to be the same as before. The monsters are evolving, why can’t they? “How do you choose the correct answers when there aren’t any?” The whole crew is faced with many obstacles with which most involve themselves. But every single character is complex, strong and beautifully flawed. All of the characters are finding themselves again and it is absolutely breathtaking watching it unfold. Oh and did I mention all the hawtness?!?! Cuz guess what?! It’s super sexy in all the right places!!! So buckle up biotches cuz it’s time for another wild ride!!!

Bravo CL Zelle!!!! You rocked this! P.S. This is at the top of my favorite series ever!!!!

 

 

 

C.L. Zelle

Christina L. Rozelle is the author of the bestselling YA Dystopian Scifi series, The Treemakers Trilogy, which includes her groundbreaking debut, “The Treemakers,” and its sequels, “The Soultakers,” and “The Seeker’s Keys.” Hailed for its strong, believable, and relatable characters, original and complex plotting, and phenomenal world-building, The Treemakers Trilogy appeals to lovers of dystopian literature who are looking for something refreshing and new.

Christina also writes adult post-apocalyptic dystopian under the nom de plume C.L. Zelle, with her first foray into the adult world, The End Saga (formerly The Night Blind Saga) releasing this year. Books one and two, “Willows in the End,” and, “Ravens in the End,” are now available, and book three, “Beacons in the End” releases Nov. 21, 2018. Proving to be quite the polarizing series, Rozelle shows her true prowess as a teller of tales with this no-holds-barred approach to a popular genre, showcasing her ability to evoke powerful emotions from her readers, be they positive or negative. She says, “as long as they’re thinking and feeling, my work here is done.”

When asked if she had plans to pull back on those wild reigns of her dark NA world, she just giggled, scrolling through her impressive backlog. Though she may not go any darker than this series, she says she’s created a lot of “wiggle room” between the YA world of The Treemakers, and the dark and taboo world of Grace and company, and she plans to fully employ every bit of that space (though, admittedly, she’s terrible at coloring inside the lines).

Rozelle’s writing roots sprouted with poetry and prose in countless journals in her early years, continuing through her tumultuous teenage years, and well into her turbulent young adult life. Though her younger self dreamed of scribing non-fiction and poetry someday, when she discovered the magic in creating fiction she never looked back. Overcoming countless obstacles of her own, the wisdom gained along her personal path through healing breathes life into her beautifully dark, yet hopeful tales of triumph. Filled with an array of emotional triggers, not many topics are off limits in her works. Rozelle’s exceptional storytelling dives deep into the survival and growth journeys of diverse, broken characters and unlikely heroes. Authentic, gritty, intricate, and wildly imaginative, her stories also offer hope–a light in the dark–as her characters discover their own inner strengths and worth in the midst of debilitating adversity.

Though her wanderlust calls her to a nomadic life of traveling the world in planes, trains, ships, and RVs, Christina currently resides in a small town in Texas, USA, with her four wonderful children and a bunch of furbabies, where she’s blessed to be able to do what she loves every day.

Reckless Youth by Sierra Hill

Conventional wisdom says you can’t love two people, but I’ve proved that wrong. Because I did.

I’ve loved two boys in my lifetime. Two boys I grew up with; boys I laughed with and cried with and eventually fell in love with.

Our love morphed into an overwhelming devotion eventually opening our eyes, bodies and hearts to a very different type of love.

A Forbidden Love.

A Lustful Love.

A Doomed Love.

They say that the heart isn’t meant for that kind of duplicity, but my stupid stubborn heart never listened.

Loving them was a necessity, something akin to breathing.

Nothing could keep us apart.

Until that fateful night – the night that tore my heart into two equal, broken parts.

Reckless Youth is Part One of a three-part, epic, MFM love story that spans the course of 25 years. It has drama, love, betrayal, sacrifice and of course, lots of steamy MFM action.

PRAISE FOR Reckless Youth:

“I started this book and next thing I knew it was 11pm and I was 90% through it! Now I find myself shaking and counting down the days until I can get my hands on Reckless Abandon! 💜” – Kelly, Goodreads reviewer

“Be ready to question your own beliefs on relationships and to fall in love with this trio (MFM) as they fall in love with each other.” – Jennifer, Goodreads reviewer

“Being a serial, you can expect a cliffhanger of course, but let me tell you, I absolutely, truly wasn’t expecting anything like *that*!” – Nina, blogger

#WOTR2018Attending #TwinsieKristiTop5 @TeresaGabelman @ShaylaBlack @IsabellaLaPearl @JennaJacob @JMWalker @CarrieAnnRyan @AliciaMontgomery #Paranormal #Contemporary #MFM #BDSM

Hello all!! Summer is here and with it is that lovely heat and humidity we love so much, NOT!!

I am here to let you know my Top 5 of the year so far and man I really haven’t branched out much these last few month, however that just means I know what I like or real life happened and I couldn’t read a lot.  Either way I love these ladies that I’m gonna tell you about and hopefully you will enjoy them too.  So, here they are in no particular order my Top 5.

Happy summer!!

Twinsie Kristi

In a world where human’s and vampires coexist, one woman with only one name and a score to settle has a hefty price on her head. She call’s herself Karma, other’s called her the Slayer of Vampires. Karma didn’t care what she was called as long as she got her revenge.

Axel Walker, also known as the Assassin, was a half-breed so his loyalty lay with the highest bidder. Who had the most money to hand him at the end of a job was the side he was on whether human or vampire. His highest pay day was yet to come and all he had to do was kill the one they call the Slayer of Vampires.

The Slayer and the Assassin become players in a tangled web of deceit. It is Karma and Axel who have to decide whether killing each other is the best plan of action or joining forces to take out those who dare make them pawns in their dangerous games.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book.

The Bad Girl series is a 2018/2019 collaboration between 13 authors releasing one book a month about kiss-ass women with a penchant for being bad, Teresa Gabelman gives us May’s Bad girl with Karma’s Revenge.

OMG!!! If anyone knows how to write about hot Vampires it’s Teresa Gabelman.

Someone is going around town and killing vampires and now the Slayer of Vampires has a price on her head.

Sophie Deluce is looking for the vampire that killed her sister and left her stuffed next to the toilet in a public bathroom.  In doing so she has made the vampires so nervous that they put a contract out for her and assassin Axel Walker has her number, however once he she’s her and finds out her reasons he returns the money and decides to help her get her man.

I was  excepting some of Gabelman’s VC Warriors to show up, the story was so good!!!!

Sophie is one kick a** woman who needs this to get justice for her sister and no one is going to stop her.  I love how she sticks to what she wants even knowing there is a price on her head, so with the help of a half-breed assassin and her drag queen best friend she continues on her mission.

I swear Gabelman does vampires like no one else and I wouldn’t mind seeing more of Axel and Sophie.

 

Heavenly Young doesn’t have time for romance. The innocent nursing student is struggling to care for her ailing father, keep a roof over their head, and start a new career. But fate decides to complicate her world even more by putting two very different men in her path and forcing her to make a choice that will change her life forever.

Dr. Ken Beckman—vascular surgeon by day, super-alpha by night—has three hard-and-fast rules: Never date where he works, never touch vanillas, and never get tangled up with a virgin. But the moment he meets Heavenly, he aches to toss his scruples aside and claim the untouched beauty. She’s not ready for someone like him…but he wants her too much to walk away—even though he’s not the only man caught in her spell.

Seth Cooper, ex-cop turned private eye, isn’t looking for a happily ever after, just a hot-and-sweaty good time. And the minute he claps eyes on Heavenly, he’s all for coaxing the angel into his bed. But soon, she’s so deep under his skin that he’s willing to put his broken past behind him and turn his life upside down for her. But he’s got competition…

When it came to helping friends, Beck and Seth were in sync. But now they’re vying for the same girl, and the games get vicious—until they realize Heavenly is keeping secrets from them both. Will they call a truce and work together again before they both lose her for good?

First let me say, Oh My Good Gravy, I love when these three ladies minds get together!!!

This is the start of the second collection of the Doms of her Life Series.  The first is Raine Falling, you don’t have to read the first to understand the second, but there is some intersecting timelines and the characters from the first do make appearances in the second.  Speaking as someone who has read the first it’s not one to miss because it’s yummy goodness!!

Now onto Beck, Seth, and Heavenly.

Beck is Dr. Kenneth Beckman vascular surgeon and a sadist who is a Master at Shadows.

Seth Cooper is a New York PI in LA to help out his friends Hammer, Liam, and Raine, he is also a Dom, but isn’t a sadist. 

Heavenly Young is a nursing student that volunteers at the hospital that Beck works at.

One look is all it takes for the two men to fall for the innocent Heavenly.  

These ladies do a great job of bringing alpha men that make you want to both smack them and swoon at their feet to life.

Beck begins being in her life as a much needed friend and Seth by taking her out on a couple dates, however, when she tells Seth that she also has feelings for Beck the jealous butthead runs home to New York, where he spends weeks being miserable.

Once Beck thinks that Seth is out of the picture he begins to date her , then Seth comes back to town. 

Heavenly can’t choose between them so the two men agree to each date her until such time as she can.  What happens next is a lot of yelling at your reading device or book as the men in the story can be a**hats!!! Lol!!

Also, Heavenly has some things that she hasn’t told her men and when they finally find out they are not happy with her in the slightest.

There are also some things that Beck hasn’t discussed either that are gonna bite him in the butt when Heavenly does find out.

I was so not happy to see the end of this story and was even more upset to see that I’d have to wait until 2019!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!

Get this book you won’t regret it, better yet get the first collection and this book, you definitely won’t regret it.

It started without trust. Passion. Lust. An all-consuming need; that was all we had in the beginning.

Lies. Betrayal. Deceit. We moved past it all and fell in love anyway.
Over ten years later, with a family of our own, our little world was perfect. Happy.

But then that happiness faded away when she came into our lives.
No control. No power. Just heartbreak and unwanted submission.

We were forced to our knees at the sight of her. The words falling from her lips were like nails digging at our soul because we knew.

We would have to go through hell to get out of this.

And even then, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

We are back with Brett and Evie!!  Years of marriage, three kids, and these two are still hot as heck together!!  Oh, and we get top see our very favorite sadist therapist!!!!

The past has come back in a big way to possibly screw up the life that they have built and let me just say that I felt just about all the feels with this one.

With all they went through in the previous stories to get and stay together I really thought that Walker was going to end this couple, I   mean how much more can two people take, and the ending?? Omg, please make sure you have tissues handy for that because you will need them and a strong drink when your done.

Walker has done a freaking mind f*** with this one so hold onto your hats  ladies and gents its going to be a bumpy ride.

Oh, and afterwards there is the story of Brett and Evie meeting for the first time, but told from his POV.  It’s awesome!!

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend.

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible.

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

My favorite family of Inked and bearded men are back, this time though it’s a different branch of the Montgomery family tree, Carrie Ann Ryan gives us Montgomery Ink: Colorado Springs!!!!

Ryan us blessed the world with the Montgomery cousins and I am one happy camper!!!

On this branch of the family tree we have Adrienne, Shephard, Thea, and Roxie.   Shep has already had his story told in Ink Inspired which was the start of the whole obsession that is Montgomery Ink.  Now it’s Adrienne’s turn and the start of Colorado Springs.

Maya and Austin, from the Denver Montgomery’s, are spreading their tattooed wings and opening a second tattoo studio called Montgomery Ink Too or MIT.  Adrienne and Shep are part owners of it with their family as well as the managers.

Adrienne is a tattoo artist and along with her bestie Mace, her brother, and friends they have MIT’s grand opening but it’s interrupted by some stranger saying that they aren’t welcome and that they wouldn’t be there long.

Mace Knight is Adrienne’s best friend, a tattoo artist, and a weekend dad to his daughter.  He is also a hot bearded silver fox!!!!!

Out of the blue his ex leaves the country and leaving him a full time father to the daughter he loves, so having to learn to become a full time father as well as starting a new job is hard on him.

Not only does Mace have a hard time with his new life, Adrienne is having a hard time also dealing with the new business and the threats to it.  Adrienne and Mace lean more on each other than they already do and start something new along the way.

I adore when best friends fall in love!!  They already know everything about each other but also learn so much more.

Adrienne and Mace are so good together I can’t believe that they haven’t moved beyond friends before now!!! 

The steam coming off these two can be seen for miles, but there is also tenderness.  The tenderness between Mace and his daughter, between Adrienne and his daughter, and the way that he realizes that they make a perfect family.

Between  Adrienne and Mace falling in love and the threat to the business  we learn about the other Montgomery girls and get to see how Shep and his family are doing now that he has moved back home to Colorado Springs.

I can not wait to read more about this branch of the family.

Luke Lennox knows he doesn’t deserve happiness. After tearing his family apart, he’s been punishing himself by living a solitary life. But when he sees Georgina Mills, the animal inside him knows: she’s his mate. His lonely heart yearns for her, but he knows that it could only end up badly for them both.

After being rescued from the clutches of an evil anti-shifter organization, Georgina Mills has finally settled in Blackstone with her young bear shifter son. She’s got a job, a home, and Grayson is finally around people like him. Now, if only the handsome, golden-eyed lion shifter who rescued them would notice her … but she’s knows she’s not exactly a catch. Besides, keeping Grayson safe is her priority for now, so her heart will have to take a backseat.

As their enemies advance on Blackstone, Luke must do everything he can to protect his home. He must also deny his growing attraction to Georgina, though he can only fight for so long before he must give in to his desires.

But Georgina is keeping a secret – one that’s so terrible and unforgivable and she doesn’t know if she can keep it under wraps for long.

When the truth is finally revealed, can Luke and Georgina’s love keep them together? Or will it destroy them, along with Blackstone?

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader’s Copy of this book

Yay!! We finally get to my favorite mysterious shifter in the Lennox family, Luke.  Adopted into the family when he was found as a cub he is a lion shifter in a family of dragon shifters.  As a adult he is estranged from his family for the most part and lives a solitary life coming to the Lennox’s only when needed.

Georgia Mills and her shifter son Grayson were saved, from a group of people that were kidnapping and experimenting on shifters, by Luke in previous book Blackstone Wolf.

Luke and Georgia find themselves attracted to each other, but Luke doesn’t want to be around anyone not even a beautiful woman who could be his mate and her young son who needs help controlling his shifting.

Georgia knows if Luke finds out her dark secret he and everyone in Blackstone will be after her and possibly her son.

Oh my goodness, Montgomery has got writing a story about reluctant mates down pat and does a awesome job at it.

I have so been waiting for Luke’s story since book one, wanting to know what makes him tick and where he came from.  This story was so worth the wait.  

Luke and Georgia have both been through so much in their lives they are like two halves that form a whole, 

Seeing them find themselves and seeing Luke interact with Grayson is totally awesome.  A love story at it’s finest.

Plus, no Blackstone Mountain story is complete without the antishifter group making a appearance and boy do they make one in this one.

I can’t wait to see who is next to find love on Blackstone Mountain.

She recoiled. If she gave him an equally blunt answer, would he stop this mortifying inquisition?
“Yes. It was easy.” Heavenly punctuated her lie with a bright smile.
River glowered. “Tell me Beck or Seth finally manned up.”
“He’s someone you don’t know.”
One of River’s dark brows shot up. “Where did you meet him?”
“Um…around.”
“What does that mean? A park? A bar? A grocery store? A swingers’ club?”
“Why does it matter? I found someone and it was lovely.”
He looked skeptical. “Lovely? That’s how you describe meeting a stranger, losing your clothes, and banging him?”
Heavenly bristled. “How would you describe a hookup?”
“Hot, sweaty, messy. Mind-blowing. Spine-melting. Earth-shattering.” River snorted. “Never lovely.”
“Sweaty?” She shuddered. “That sounds unpleasant. It was nice. I…tingled.”
“Tingled?” He scowled. “Did your pussy fall asleep because he couldn’t find your clit? Maybe you should have given him a map.”
She nearly choked on her wine. “I found the experience perfectly satisfying.”
“Sweetheart, you don’t know squat about satisfaction.” Raine’s brother leaned in and peered at her, eye to eye. “Here’s what I think happened: You haven’t so much as flirted with another man. You don’t understand why ‘lovely’ sex is bad because you’ve never had it. In fact, not only did you not have sex with this mysterious ‘stud,’ you haven’t offered the virginity you asked me to take to anyone else.”
“What. The fuck. Did you say?” Beck growled suddenly.
Heavenly glanced over her shoulder. Both Beck and Seth glared from across the kitchen. Oh, no.
“Get out,” Seth snapped at River, hauling ass across the room. “Now. While you can still walk.”
Dread burned her veins. She didn’t have to wonder how much they’d overheard. Obviously, it had been more than enough. Tonight had just gone from mortifying to catastrophic.
River backed away, hands raised. “Hey, just so you know, I turned her down because I like my balls where they are.”
“That’s the only reason you’re getting to keep them,” Beck insisted. “Seth told you to get the fuck out.”
“I’m leaving,” River assured, then glanced her way. “Good luck.”
Once he’d gone, silence descended. She was alone with the two men who had been tempting, confusing, and consuming her for months. They were going to demand answers.
This wouldn’t end well.
Heavenly drew in a shaky breath, startled to find both now inches away, arms crossed over their chests. Aggression rolled off them, filling the tense air. Beck drilled holes through her with narrowed eyes, set off by a scathing slash of his mouth. Seth’s seething stare was no less displeased. Unfortunately, she had nothing to offer the savage beasts except a smile full of trembling bravado.
Because the truth would change everything.

The Angel's Divide (Beyond Blood Series Book 2)

A Family Divided
With family comes different shades of insanity, a lesson I’m learning more and more these days. I’m torn between honoring the family name I grew up with and settling for the monster I was born to be. Love, duty and lies have cemented a divide within a family that was never meant to be. I may very well be that divide.

A Life Divided
It’s a balancing act. An exercise in right from wrong, human from monster, something that has taken my entire life to master. A divide that is becoming harder to manage. I don’t want to be that monster, but she is becoming stronger and stronger, eating away at my humanity every day. How much longer can I hold her back?

A Heart Divided
Both Lorcan and Alistair own me, whether it be my heart, body or soul. Both are my mates, each bound to a necessary part of me. No matter how much I try to deny it I’m not sure I could survive without either of them. Lorcan appeals to my human side, keeping me alive, sane and satisfied, while Alistair brings out the monster, along with the dark pain and pleasure. I want to cut my ties with the devil, but will the price an old witch demands be worth the sacrifice of losing both? Or worse, myself?

I purchased this book at an author signing when the author told me all about this series.  I had never read anything from her and the whole paranormal, dark and erotica thing had me sold.

I didn’t think it could get any better and then BANG Book 2.

The book picks up right at the ended so be ready for the news about Jane, Kendrick, Alistair, Angel and Lorcan plus our favorite beeotch aunt.

This book we really see Angel struggling.  She is struggling with her humanity.  She is struggling with her need for the pain Alistair gives her.  She is struggling with the care and devotion she gets from Lorcan.  The girl is a mess then you throw in the guilt for Jane’s new situation…..OY VEY.

This book our girl is done taking it from everyone and decided to take the horse by the reigns.  She finally trusts her dad to help her out of a situation with Lorcan by her side, but can she really trust daddy dearest???  I mean I felt bad with the story he tells us about his love for Angel’s mom buuuuut yeah…hrmmmmm.  He had ulterior motives I totally thing.

The book zooms and before you know it Angel is left battling for her life and her humanity.  I can not wait for the next book because its going to be a wilder ride I can totally see.

I am a stay at home mother which never leaves a dull moment. I am not a sports enthusiast and quite frankly I’m probably allergic to exercise.
My guilty pleasures are Dr. Pepper and chocolate. They have both been at my side many of nights as I write. I write anything from paranormal romance to dark erotica. You will probably find as I release more books that my work may cover anything from the happily ever after endings to the dark and broken ending and pretty much all the areas in between

 

#WOTR18 #Erotic #Review #PNR #Vampiers #Dark – The Devil’s Angel (Beyond Blood Book 1) by Christine Alvarez

The Devil's Angel (Beyond Blood) (Volume 1)

**WARNING**
The Devil’s Angel is not intended for the faint of heart. It is violent, dark and focuses on a very warped blood fetish.
The heroine is hard, confident and learns the hard way that what she is has limits, and what she craves is beyond what she has ever wanted.
The hero is far from a hero. He is a depraved sociopath who has a craving for blood and violence that goes beyond his vampire nature. Hero wouldn’t even be the appropriate title. More like the destroyer.
The first book in a Burned and Broken Happily Ever After it is intended for readers 18+. It contains death, knife play, anal, and same sex encounters. There are parts that are uncomfortable and down-right horrific. If you can handle that by all means proceed, but you have been warned.

He is the Devil.
Hell is a relative term, but from the moment Alistair Drake stepped into my office I was on my way. I have been taught from as early as I could remember that vampires should be nothing but dust in the wind, but his sly grin and commanding presence helped weave his web pulling me within. The methods nothing less than masterful, wound in such a way that I couldn’t feel when escape was nothing but a memory. He holds more questions than answers but as his pain turns to pleasure and his pleasure turns to pain none of that seems like it matters.
She is my Angel.
Heaven is transcendent, but with Angel Mae heaven was imminent. Her hybrid makeup feeds my unique pleasures. She is the perfect toy to add to my collection but to acquire something such as her doesn’t come without risk. The very blood that pulses just beneath her perfect skin chips away at my control. The monster that had been so expertly reigned in pounds harder at its escape. As her pain becomes my pleasure and I become her pain none of that seems to matter.
He is the Key.
The mark, Lorcan McRevve, the right hand man to the devil himself was supposed to be the key to escaping a prison I’m not even sure I want to escape. The secrets that he holds and the secrets that unfold may prove to be too much. Will tracking him down be worth it or will both men use the power of blood, pain, pleasure and seduction to hold me in a prison that may shatter the already fragile divide of two worlds that I have worked so hard to balance?

I purchased this book at an author signing when the author told me all about this series.  I had never read anything from her and the whole paranormal, dark and erotica thing had me sold.

Holy Moly….ok yeah the warnings….you should prolly not read this book if you get a bit nervous about those because they are most definitely present in the book.  I didn’t think they were THAT bad but you may!!  I will warn ya, Alistair is a sociopath and so yeah….not a good guy..so yeah he does bad, bad, bad things to people!!

I was sold on this series when the author told me erotic and paranormal then she said dark……yup it hit all the components I was hoping for.  Alistair is a very old vampire with secrets galore.  He hires Angel, the vampire/monster killer to help her find a missing “child” of his and some things the child took.

Angel and her bestie Jane know something is not right, but Angel goes and gets into business with the guy against her better judgement.  Angel is half human and half vampire.  Her vampire side aka her monster is calling to her and to him which causes all kinds of future issue for our girl.

Alistair seems to know more about Angel and her vampire hunting family then even she knows.  He also has some connections to her past that she will do anything to learn.  However, anything means she will be mating with the devil himself to get to the bottom of the truth.

This book has so many plot twists and turns but sweet baby Jesus…the sexy time scenes were HAWT….like WOW hawt.  I mean *Eyes bugging out* Did they do THAT!!  Did they have THEM join in???  Holy hot tamale!!!!

So the end of the book left us with a giant GASP moment and I am so going to download book 2 because I am dying to know what is happening to Angel, Jane, Alistair and the rest of the crew.

#REVIEW – Their Stepsister by Alexa Riley

Sweet, innocent, virginal Sarah had never once stopped thinking about her stepbrothers since she left for college. Identical in looks but opposites in personality, the twins were everything Sarah wanted in a lover.

Now that sexy little Sarah was home for good, twins Luke and Logan could no longer fight the pull and keep away from her. She’d grown into a beautiful young woman. She had curves that made their mouths water and a body made for two men. Evidently years in the Marines and away from Sarah hadn’t curbed their lust or obsession.

It was time for Luke and Logan to make a move. It was time for Sarah to learn who she belonged to. She was theirs – heart, body and soul.

Warning! Only for readers above 18, this book contains insta-love, taboo romance, menage and double penetration at its dirtiest. Proceed with caution.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

One thing I love about the books by AR that I’ve read so far is that women are curvy or short or both. They’re not your picture perfect model. They’re real.

So this little story, we meet Logan, Luke and Sarah. Luke and Logan have been in love with Sarah for years and vice versa. But of course, they all deny their feelings for each other until one delicious night and everything…well…combusts.

AR did it again with another hot little number. I can’t get enough of these ladies words. I think their stories about two people were hot. But three? Wow.

#REVIEW – Trapped with Twins for Christmas: A Holiday MFM Quickie by Kat Crimson

Nancy is having a bad week! Car troubles, money troubles, work troubles… you name it. When showing up late to a meeting gets her put on holiday decorating detail, her problems go from bad to worse. With her job on the line, Nancy’s last minute Christmas tree shopping expedition turns into a dangerously snowy adventure, as she gets Trapped with Twins for Christmas!

Warning: the temperatures outside may be extremely low, but this quickie is oh so hot! If you’re looking for a sizzling holiday romance novella featuring two alpha male lumberjack twins for Christmas, this is it!

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I haven’t read a lot of Holiday stories. I didn’t even watch a lot of Holiday movies over Christmas. But this little story caught my attention and it’s free. Can’t beat that.

Kat always delivers in her sexy hot stories. This one is short but it definitely makes some heat.

Nancy is having a crappy week. During the holidays of course. She needs to find a Christmas tree and ends up shacked up with twins while she waits for the winter storm to pass by. Well they kill some time and definitely warm each other up.

Read this little hottie to find out if Nancy did in fact get her tree. 😉
