#WOTR19 – #Review – Scars (Marked Series 2.5) by Elena M. Reyes

 

Scars (Marked #2.5)

Abandoned.

Thrown away.

Invisible.

Every single one of those could be used to describe me. They can tell you my story—my sad past—without a single syllable passing through my lips.

I hate them—those who lied to me. They claimed to love me, but in reality they used me when convenient. My parents. Sister. And now Talan. Loving them has left me empty. Sad.

Alone.

Not anymore. Screw them. My love has turned to anger…hate. Now, what consumes me is the urge to destroy, to force them to see what they wrecked with their carelessness. My name will never be forgotten. Not after I have my revenge.

His tears will be my ultimate retribution.

Oh holy hell! This is all about Janice, this girl…..smh. In the first two books we get glimpses of our girl but she has had a sordid past and some other issues to go right along with it. She is the girl we all love to hate….but dayum, I feel so bad for her. So, we all know she is hung up on Talan and currently hates Maya because she stole Talan from her. But the leaps and bounds she goes through to tear these two apart is incredible. And she has a support system that wants to help her be better.

 

I dressed like a whore.

Acted like a b*tch.

Innocent could never be used to describe me.

 

We get to dive into Janice’s world and how she rationalizes what she does and did! She has scars but does an incredible job at hiding them….until…..Maya. It’s definitely an interesting glimpse into her life and give us so much more to go on than just the crazy girl who thinks she loves Talan. There is SOOOOOOO MUCH MORE! I feel more complete with the series at this point knowing just where Janice is coming from and how she justifies her behavior. It’s INTENSE!!!!

 

Losing him to her wouldn’t be the end of my world, just the intermission into my next chapter.

 

I can’t wait to get started with Marked to get my fix! I’m addicted!!!! Bravo Elena M. Reyes, you rocked my world!

#Review #AntiHero – PowerLess: Anti-Hero Game #3 by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

PowerLess: Anti-Hero Game (Power Chain Book 3)

Failure isn’t an option. Even for her.
She was beautiful.
It was dangerous.
She was fierce.
It made her a target.
She was loyal.
It would be her downfall.
I am Dane Anderson.
I’m powerless to my attraction to her, even if she’s my next job. As a hitman in an underworld she can only fear, I have a reputation to uphold.
She will learn, no matter how innocent she is, I never fail on a job …
Including her.

Goodreads

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

Man Oh Man.  I have been waiting for Dane’s book…like WAITING!!!  He so did not disappoint.

We know the bothers :Dane, Pax, Garrett and Dane are not really good guys but they are good bad guys who do good…does that make sense?  Nope and yet we fall in love with them.  They are not “hearts and flowers” until they find that one special lady.  That one person who makes them want more…who makes them want to be more.  Dane so did not let me down in this department!!

Aspen is the best friend a girl could want until the day she does the wrong thing at the wrong time to help her friend.  Then she learns the hard way how life can be even crueler then she thought was possible.  When Aspen goes on the run, her besties boyfriend calls in a marker to have her killed…Que Dane our assassin!!

Friends, this story is amazing.  Seeing these two fight their connection and then give in each knowing more then they are letting on about themselves.  Each wanting to protect the other but not knowing how to do it without ruining what they are building…holy moly.  The deeper we see them falling the more anxiety I had over “how will this all fall apart”.  Then we start to sense something isn’t right…things are changing…the marker is being changed and we gotta know why????  HRMMM was all I kept saying.  When the secrets tumble out…I was like OH SNAP!!

I love love love me some Ellen Sue.  She is the perfect mother for these boys.  I love how she makes them see what they ware too afraid to admit.  I love how she takes the women under her wing and helps them understand what “her boys” are doing is for their benefit.

I will be so sad when the series comes to an end but I am so ready for Garretts book!

She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.

Rules will not be broken.

Especially by her.
She was a strong woman.

She became my personal challenge. It made me hard.
The more she hated me, the more I relished it.
I’m determined to break her down.
I am Paxton Williams. I’m a power player in an underworld game only few people know exist.
She knew the rules.
She knew the consequences.
She should know I’m not the man to let anyone get away…Including her.

Power Play by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

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

When the last book ended we see the beginning of Pax and Laurel.  Just that final scene alone tells us their relationship will be volatile in the best of ways!!  I mean to show up waving a gun at the man you love…that shows passion, right????

Pax has loved Laurel as long as he can remember.  She never looks down on him for being an orphan and has always been the light to his dark world. When his underworld dealings come crashing into her life, he does all he can to protect and FINALLY Claim what is his….HER!

Laurel has loved Pax as long as she can remember but his hot and cold plus the shredding her young heart has always made her heart guarded when he is near.  When Pax takes all of her money and kidnaps her, she is none to thrilled even IF she is 110% in love with him.

The dynamic of the two is awesome to read.  They both keep each other totally honest and open even when they don’t want to admit what they are feeling.   When Laurel learns of the danger she is in, she trusts Pax to keep her safe and even opens to heart to all the love she has for him.

Pax finally gets the girl of his dreams to FREAK OUT but gotta love Laurel for not letting him back to quickly.  She is going to make sure he knows she is in control even after everything he did to her and for her.

The build up for Dane’s books had me very interested in seeing what our favorite assassin has going on to make his cool demeanor all stressed out.

#ReleaseDay #AntiHero #Review – PowerChain, Power House Book #1 by Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele

PowerHouse (Power Chain Book 1)

No one denies me. Especially her.

She dismissed me.
That was her first mistake.
She thought I was a nice guy.
That was her second.
She had hope.
That was the final straw.
I am Onyx Blake.
I’m a powerhouse in an ugly underworld only found in her nightmares.
She’s going to learn quickly, I’m not the man to let anything go …
Including her.

What the actual EFF did I read??  OMG these ladies totally blew me away.  I love a good anti-hero book thanks to Ryan introducing me to the genre a few years ago.  She grabbed me, shook me and said “Woman you need to read THIS BOOK!!”  So yeah, I was excited to see her and my Sister Wife team up to write one too.

First up, Dane….
I am just sayin’ (AND I told CC), I am all over him like White on Rice ladies so yeah don’t even think about it.  I am straight up warning you away NOW.  I am super claimy with my book husbands.

Ok back to Onxy….there is absolutely no reason why I should but I love the hell outta him.  As CC told me…He is a dick but a dick with a heart 😊  #NiceTagLine

Onxy is everything you need to say away from.  He does illegal business but it’s also kinda good illegal business so that makes it ok…..Yeah total stockholmed with him I tell ya.  Torryn AKA Collateral is just that…..she was in the wrong place and the wrong time with the wrong people.  She is forced and then agrees to stay to help her sister.  I mean when you find out why she openly agrees to say with her kidnapper, you would stay too.

I can’t begin to get into the plot because that would spoil EVERYTHING for you and trust me, YOU NEED TO EXPERIENCE IT.  Onxy and Torryn are a hell of a couple.  They both push and pull.  They both love and love hard.  They both are loyal to those they love and they both are lost with out the other.

The plot is insane and once you think you know it all, it gets a whole new level of insane.  Then you think ok its all good, I got this and then BOOM more crazy.  This book was not one you could put down.  Be ready to sit and read, read, read each and every page like I did.  After I was like WHOOOOOAAAA and then I immediately messaged CC to say WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME!!!!!!!
