Goodreads Book 1


I received this book for an honest review from the author and honest you shall get!!!

I am sitting here at my computer sobbing, literally sobbing over this book. I went through a box of tissues and a packet of tums. IN-FREAKING-TENSE was this book.

I am a fan of really emotional, gut wrenching, tear your heart out and stomp on it while it lays on the floor kinda books!! This book sooooooo qualifies.

Val is such an amazing person who is so giving and loving but seems to be stuck in the ever emotional toxic love of Ethan. Ethan is just a true measure of addiction and doesn’t appreciate Val for all she is worth. His idea of “chasing her” is screwing everything else that has a skirt on or getting so high he cant even function. This is pretty much their relationship but the addiction continues to get worse and worse as does his behavior and attitude toward her. I think the author did a great job showing the true relationship of a couple when addiction is involved. It is heart wrenching that Ethan has had emotional and physically abusive relationships but he is so self involved he has no idea he is doing the same thing to Val.

There were a few scenes where I broke for Val when she was confronted by Ethan’s wondering ways. I feared for her because she knows in her heart he is not a “good person” but the party scene absolutely crushed me along with her. I think, like Val, I wanted him to have some redeeming qualities…..but the party killed me. I broke for her and me at that point. Then I broke for the man I wanted to see Val with. The man who loved her, supported and cared for her even though she was stuck in this web of Ethan lies and betrayal.

Well along the way Val does develop some emotionally sustaining and loving relationships. SOME of the “relationships” I was like “you go girl!!” I loved the men who helped her through tough times with Ethan. However no matter what, she would always return to Ethan. This dance goes on for a few years.

I am not going to talk specifics because I will totally end up giving away the whole story BUT if you love rocker books and you love emotionally raw “real” books then this is the book for you. Seriously, I cannot wait to read the books for the other band members!!!!

“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” While you’re more likely to see Jade headbanging than Dirty Dancing, she–like Baby–won’t be put in a corner…or a box. So even though you can’t really stick her books in one genre, you could say she mostly writes steamy Contemporary Romance–and, while you’re at it, you’ll notice in her stories that Jade freaking loves Colorado, hard music, coffee, bad words, and CHOCOLATE!!! And so do her characters.

Oh, and there’s always a glimmer of hope…because if life doesn’t have that, what’s the damn point?

#WOTR19 #CompleteSeries – Torn Trilogy and Red (A Brett MacLean Duet) by JM Walker

The Torn Trilogy Box Set (Torn, #1-3)

Red (A Brett MacLean Duet)

Torn Trilogy –

From bestselling author, comes three full length novels, The Torn Trilogy, wrapped up in one boxset:

Possessed by You (Torn #1) Blurb:

Releasing control is relief…
I was warned about men like Brett Maclean.
He was dark and thrilling, intense and controlling. And he captivated me from the very start. He unleashed something inside of me like no other. His bad rep and troubled past drew me to him like gasoline feeding a flame.
With just one taste, I felt the danger in him, the uncontrollable power that left me breathless. The passion consumed me. Fast and hard.
Temptation couldn’t guard my heart. I should have known a man of such raw and wild desires came with competition.

Revealed by You (Torn #2) Blurb:

The sharp edge of love…
Brett MacLean was possessive. Even more since I became his. He was my desire…my ultimate pleasure…he was mine.
As each day passed, he revealed a part of himself that had lain dormant. A broken childhood. A troubled man. One I was determined to help.
After months together, I thought I knew him. But soon realized I was wrong. His dark secrets were only the beginning. The past was more disturbing than I ever could have fathomed.
His deep seeded need for me came with a price that could have consequences. I needed him just as much. Because of this, we would be tested. My greatest fear was that it would take us beyond the limits of our love.

Perfected by You (Torn #3) Blurb:

An all-consuming need…
Evvie Neal was my addiction. The love I felt for her controlled me and it brought me to my knees. She was my one. My only.
Destroyed as a boy, healed as a man, she was my saving grace. The first person who knew the real me. Because of her, I became stronger. Whole. A true warrior in my own personal Hell.
As time went on, demons from my past haunted me, threatening to ruin what I had worked so hard to become. Strong.
The ultimate sacrifice was giving up a piece of myself to be perfect. For her.

 

Red Duet –

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.

#REVIEW – Seduction Games (Game for Cookies Book 1) by Allyson Lindt

Andi’s been denied funding—again—to expand her cookie business, and walked in on her boyfriend screwing another woman. Saying she’s had better days is an understatement.

Kane and Isaiah, her online gaming partners and the cutest couple ever as far as Andi’s concerned, know exactly how to cheer her up. They’re thinking road trip to Las Vegas, compete in a national first person shooter competition for a cash grand prize, and find her a one night stand to take her mind off her cheating ex.

Andi’s all in… except she’s not sure she can seduce a random hookup. Isaiah and Kane offer to give her some hands-on experience. With each new lesson, it becomes harder for Andi to remember the guys are just friends.

If Andi can’t put some distance between their seductive three-way hookups and her heart, it will cost their team the competition, and she’ll lose two of the best friends she’s ever had.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released as Will Game for Cookies (For the Win Book 1)

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I was looking for a book last night. I had no idea what I wanted to read but then I came across this one. And I’m SO glad I gave it a chance. Hot boys and gaming? Yes please! NERD alert! Now, I don’t play. I used to play like Zelda and stuff but nothing more than that but the fact that there are competitions for games, fascinates me. But anyway, let’s review.

Andi has her heart broken something fierce. Buuuut…is it really that broken? James was a douche canoe and I personally would just be more embarrassed over it than anything.

Andi and her two team mates, head to a gaming competition in Vegas and the sparks fly during this trip. I have to say that Kane’s hot and cold bothered me but that’s good! It means the author did something right. But when everything gets revealed, *swoon*, it was just everything I could hope for in an ending.

Also, the fact that Andi and her best friend are trying to run a cookie business, is even more reason to fall in love with this story.

I purchased this book.

I am such a fan of book 1 I had to do a reread of it before starting Book 2.  Guess what?  I was still utterly in love with Leo and Sloane as I was the first time around.  Guess what?  I totally devoured this book because I needed to know what was going to happen to them.  Were the secrets going to be something they could work through or would more secrets and betrayals end my favorite hot mess couple??

Guys!!  Leo…omg tall, dark and super mysterious and yet so broken as a man he can’t even function now that Sloane knows EVERYTHING! He needs his love/his submissive to be complete and yet he is completely powerless to fix it.

Sloane…..she is a hot mess of confusion.  She has fallen for the wrong guy twice and been broken up over this.  So now she questions if her submission is the issue.  Maybe she should be a Domme??  Maybe if SHE was in control things would be better……???

The beginning of the book SEEING these characters so flipping lost and miserable made my heart ache for them.  They are both a hot mess because relationships are not something the do or even do well when in them.

When Leo makes the ultimate move to help get his girl back….swoon…my heart.  Seeing him be so vulnerable for Sloane was amazing.  Seeing her struggle with what she wanted even though she KNOWS she wants submission……The scene was so amazing.  Seeing the couple reconnect on a new level, an equal level, and level with total honestly was amazing.

Now folks, you know Kate isn’t gonna just let the Devil AKA Warren leave us alone right? ? Well that man comes back around and causes so much havoc and chaos for the family plus our couple, I seriously was cheering Leo on to punch him out!!

I loved the complexity of the relationship that Leo and Sloane have but I love the new levels of trust and honesty they develop in this book.  The epilogue was like the best part of this story friends…OMG I was loving it and how she blended it so flawlessly and seamlessly into the story.  I will so miss these characters but hey, if she decided to write a book about Ethan, I would be tots all about reading it!  JUST SAYING!!  HE was some kinda yummy.  He wasn’t Mr. Right but he was MR. Right Now….LOL

 

Bindings, Book 1 :

Ashamed of the woman she allowed herself to become, Sloane Montgomery sets out to repair the self-inflicted damage done to her life. A new town holds her new beginning and when Leo Calloway arrives everything changes.

Captivated by Leo and his dark desires, Sloane wonders if her fascination with his dominance goes deeper than fantasy. Has she been seeking punishment to atone for the sins of her past all along? Though Leo’s brutal lust is what first enthralls her, the bonds of trust they form could have the power to heal her.

When the ties to her former life threaten to take hold of her again, the passion binding her to Leo may be the key to her ultimate release.
