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.

EVERYTHING CHANGED IN AN INSTANT.
I thought I knew what was important, but one phone call sent my life into a tailspin.
Alone and afraid, I cling to the one man I shouldn’t.
I was warned about him and told to stay away. “He’s dangerous,” they said.

“He’s not who they think,” I told myself.
But just like an illusion, things are never what they seem.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Enshrine by Chelle Bliss
Bruno & Callie
HEARTBREAKING, EMOTIONAL, AND JUST RIGHT
5 Stars cause 10 is not an option!

Well, for starters, this book is amazeballs! This one is so off the charts it will put you into a tail spin and your soul in an uproar. I can’t remember when I read a book so full of emotion that I had to put it down for a bit just to collect myself and my thoughts! Chelle has poured her heart and soul into this book and it shows. Don’t mistake me, you WILL cry and you WILL gasp, but you most definitely will laugh your ass off as well.

Callie is such a powerful character. I am amazed at her strength and her wisdom. Staring down the barrel of a gun with a rough road ahead, she does exactly what I would have done. She closes in on herself. She shuts everyone and everything out. I believe she thinks if she acknowledges the “elephant” in the room that it’ll crush her into a million tiny pieces and she’ll never see the light of day again. Enter Bruno! The light at the end of the tunnel. I love this man!

Bruno is everything and nothing all at once. He’s mysterious, he’s uber hot, and his life couldn’t be more complicating. He deals with his own demons, but finds the power to be what Callie needs. He brings so much depth to this story with his curious lifestyle and his temperamental ways. What once was a frightening, dark stranger has now become the driving force within himself and Callie. This man will make your day, your week, hell, even your year!

The supporting character cast is not small, but really not too big either. Lee, Bruno’s sister is so damn cute. I just need this girl in my posse like NOW. I think she’s just a little bit of a crutch to her brother right at the times he needs it the most. Knowing now what I know about her, she couldn’t have come into Callie’s life at a better time. As for the rest of Bruno’s family, they effing rocked! Welcoming and warm! Funny and blunt. I loved them, but I always love Chelle’s made up families… somehow they seem to make me want to be adopted by them. Now, Becca, Callie’s bestie is such a doofis. I mean, she cares about Callie, but it seems most of the shit Becca did or said didn’t help at all. I still loved her and her quirky ways!

This story will stain your soul forever. The pacing is medium to fast paced and keeps you turning pages before you even know it’s 2AM and you’ve gotta be up at 4:30AM for work (True story). The characters are lovable and believable. They make this story so rich with love and laughter. The dialogue flows and feels very natural. Chelle doesn’t tell you a story here, she shows you one. The tension created by this tale will lead you to the most exhilarating climax. I loved it and will be talking about this one for years to come.

REVIEW: Quiet Lies by R.L. Griffin

QUIET LIES

I was broken before I met Sebastian Pryor, but he decimated me. I swept the ashes of myself into a pile that I kept safe for thirteen years. Believe me it wasn’t pretty, oh but people thought we were perfect. I hate myself most days. I hate that I feel for him as much as I loathe who I’ve become with him. This story is hard to hear. You know what the worst part is? You’ll see part of you in me. You’ll hate that. You won’t tell anyone.

My story is about cracks. A description or telling of how cracks in a marriage, a life, a personality, a heart and a mind begin and continue for years without anyone knowing. You don’t always see what causes the fissure, but you feel it. Can you remember who you were before all of this started, before your life became a jumble of deceit, longing and regret?

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a happily ever after.

This book isn’t for anyone who needs a fun time out from their life.

This book isn’t for anyone, but me.

This is my story. I won’t apologize for it.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Quiet Lies by R.L. Griffin
Rebecca & Sabastian
AN EMOTIONAL ROLLERCOASTER
4.5 Stars.

So, this is another one of those reads suggested to me from my pal Jo! She really knows how to pick ’em. This one is all over the globe! I still can’t decide if I love it, if I hate it, or if I just merely hate myself for loving such a fucked up story. It’s a total mind fuck and will leave you reeling for days. I feel lost, yet more empowered after reading this book. These characters will take you on a journey that you won’t soon forget.

Sabastian Pryor is many things. He’s a calloused business man. He’s a fairly good father. He’s a personable kind of guy, and most importantly, he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing! Everything from the outside looks picture perfect, but behind closed doors, they’re anything but. He cheats, he manipulates, and he uses any means necessary to get what he wants. I honestly thought I loved him in the beginning. I thought this guy can’t be that bad. Just wait!

Rebecca is a fanatical conundrum. She messed with my head more than I think Sabastian did. One day you think she’s got her head on straight and she’ll make the right decision, and then the bottom drop out on you because she doesn’t. I can’t tell you how many times I yelled out loud at my kindle over this woman and her fucked up life. She’s plays the part of a happy housewife and mother, but she’s slowly dying inside. She may seem totally gone, but there’s still a shred of the old Rebecca in there. She will surprise you and keep you on your toes. Pay attention!

The supporting character cast is not big. There are few people who don’t even get a second glance once they’ve been introduced. A few faceless people that Rebecca has to deal with at her son’s school. Rebecca’s Mother makes few appearance and I’m pretty sure that woman has a screw or two loose also. A few people from Rebecca’s past, none to really make a stink about… but there is one guy who bares mentioning… Adrian! This man saved me from complete and utter panic. He saved us all, well, mostly! I can’t really say much more about him, but you’ll see!

So, this one is a doozie! It’s complicated and complex. It’ll have you guessing and hoping till the very last part! It’s a very compelling story. It’s characters exceedingly powerful. The storyline is a little difficult to follow as it flips back and forth from past to present. Sometimes I wasn’t sure what I was reading at times, but the dialogue flowed very nicely. The tension created by the author was just right and lead me to an ending that rocked my world.
