#WOTR19 – #Review – Marked (Marked Series #3) by Elena M. Reyes

 

Marked (#3 Marked Series)

 

“With everything I am. I’ll always be by your side.”

It was his truth.

A vow Talan made to the woman who owned him. Because that is what Maya did to him, she held his entire life in her hands. He lived for her smile . . . her happiness.

And now someone has dimmed that light in her eyes with their malice.

Because if one thing was certain, it was that he breathed for her. It was her warmth and love that gave him a home—a purpose and desire for more.

But now that had been threatened. Maya was in pain and that for him was unbearable. His love for his Bitty has taken him past the breaking point and he’s determined to make those that hurt her pay. He wanted the blood of those that wronged her—almost took her away from him—on his hands.

It was his fault. A fault that he would right no matter what he had to go through.

How does a man so completely in love with his female react to seeing her broken in a hospital bed?

He fights. Goes against all logic and seeks vengeance.

I’ve been MARKED! The sheer intensity of the emotions that come from this entire series is incredible, but Marked is where it all combusts! I assume if you are reading this review you have read the rest of the series….and if you have not….well read them! Maya is in the hospital after the incident with Janice. Talan is a mess because of the Maya getting hurt and feels that it is all his fault. Both of them are hard headed and stubborn enough to make you want to smack em around and hug them at the same time. The feelings these two have for each other are extremely intense. A true and pure love. And the extended “family” of characters all play their part. Maya’s light has burned out. She has been reduced by what Janice has done. Maya and Talan are second guessing each other and words fly. Emotions are heightened and fireworks explode. They work through this together and with the fam. But then are blindsided when Luke (Janice’s doctor) shows up at their doorstep to discuss Janice’s situation with them. This is when we really see the doc’s true colors and possible feelings for his patient. This also puts Talan and Maya to the test as both of them realize that Janice has “issues”  but both also feel that she knew what she was doing. The spoiler that I will give is that Luke does ask Maya to attend a therapy session with Janice to talk about the incident. ***this is the only spoiler!*** And this brings a lot of the heavy to Maya’s and Talan’s relationship over the whether or not Maya decides to go or not. With that being said….you must read this to find out!

 

“…but it was your heart that stole mine. Please don’t ever return it; it’s yours. Just like you will always f**king be mine.”

 

“Hate was a powerful thing. Made humans macabre and cold. Deadly. My biggest fear was that he would become lost in the need to seek revenge and I lost him.”

 

“Like Heaven.

Like Hell.

Like my favorite kind of sin.”

 

These two have an incredible bond and being able to go on this emotional roller-coaster with them is amazing. But no worries…this book is full of witty banter and plenty of snark that makes us all laugh with the intense stuff that you may need some tissues for. What are you waiting for? Pick this up!

#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.

 

Goodreads

 

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!

#WOTR19 – #Review – Marking Him #2 (Marked #2) by Elena M. Reyes

Marking Him #2 (Marked Series)

 

The day Maya Owens walked into his tattoo shop, everything Talan knew changed.

After officially starting a relationship, he is now having trouble managing Maya—a woman who consumes every part of his being and owns his heart. His need to control her and everything around her drives Maya insane, but he has good reason. After all, Janice is still lurking around and she has a vendetta against his Bitty.
In no time Talan wants more, and it’s faster than Maya can handle; things begin to get complicated.

Months of frustration and want take them for a ride neither wanted, but now yearn for. Will they make it through the turbulence? And if so, at what cost?

 

Goodreads

 

“Zero to sixty never felt this good.” Oh holy hotness! These two just don’t stop. Totally intense with each other, their feelings toward each other, and the feelings that others have for them. They are totally consumed with each other but in a beautifully chaotic way. Talan and Maya have made things official but Talan wants so much more and now….and Maya is still a little hesitant with school and her potential career. Janice is lurking and a “friend” of Maya’s wants more of her too. In this installment we still get tons of witty banter and even more angst than before. The two of them are sooooooo “frustrated” *winks* . Talan is totally alpha but Maya is independent. They butt heads a time or two but they are the perfect push and pull for each other. The other characters keep the story going as they are all a misfit of a family, smh and laughing! The only thing that I didn’t particularly care for is that the story seemed to stretch forever… When I say this I mean that Marking Her was all fast and furious and super intense. Marking Him is less fast but all the furious and intensity from the previous story. Incredible story nonetheless and still a page turner!

 

“The moment I laid eyes on you,” I whispered. She gasped while I shoved back the torn fabric off her shoulders. “I became yours. You took without warning.” I kissed my way down her throat while speaking, taking small bites between each kiss. “It’s my turn.”

 

I’m ready for the crazy that is Janice in Scars 2.5!

#WOTR19 – #Review – Marking Her (Marked #1) by Elena M. Reyes

Marking Her (Marked, #1)

Talan wants to mark Maya—with more than his ink. The owner of a prominent tattoo shop, he’s used to being hit on by easy women. Though “easy” is not a word associated with Maya when she comes in to support her friend. Flirtation ensues, but what will it take to break the painted man.

 

Goodreads

 

Sooooo HAWT!!!!! This is a whirlwind of hot, sass, and tatts!!! We start by meeting our painted man, Talan. He is the owner of a tattoo shop and is constantly being hit on by easy women that he could take home at any time he wants. He is smitten by Maya, a girl who comes into the shop for support for a friend that is getting tatted. Maya is a small girl but takes no crap from anyone. She is witty and he is immediately pulled in by her and she by him. It’s sort of an insta-love type situation but with so much more! The wit and banter between all the characters is hilarious and keeps the story going. So full of angst and of course we have a crazy ex!!!  While the two of them are trying to figure out exactly what they are doing “together” they are both trying to reign in their feelings. She wants to go for it and he wants to go slow. But eventually the zero to sixty happens! One of my favorite lines…. “I have no words for the madness you create inside of me.” This was a fast and intense read that made me dive right into Marking Him, the second book in the series, right away! Loving me some Talan and Bitty!!!

Into creatures willing to spill all their blood, end-all their lives, in the hopes of finally being freed.
Even if we die in our attempt to escape, Noah and I are determined to take as many of them down with us as we can.
Before it’s all over, we will all bleed for their sins.

If haven’t read this series then you seriously don’t know what you are missing! I have devoured each and ever one of the books. Freed was one that I had desperately been awaiting. Is this the finale I wanted? NO! There are so many questions that I still have and so many more were created from reading this book. I love the characters and I have enjoyed their struggles as well as their realizations about their feelings for one another!

#WOTR18 #DualReview #TwinsieForTheDayJordan – Stolen Kisses by Elena M. Reyes

Stolen Kisses

Four years of celibacy have turned Hunter Miles into a predator—a dangerous man. He’s horny. Hard. And coming home from college, he never expected to find Bailey Jones so tempting.
It’s an instant infatuation.
She’s the one woman he shouldn’t want—his little sister’s best friend. The last time he saw her she was a knobby-kneed little girl, but what welcomed him home was all woman—her decadent curves and a flirtatious smile tossed at him each time they are within arm’s reach.
She’s tempting.
Pushing.
Offering up her body to a man hanging by a very thin thread.
Fuck the consequences. He wanted her, and she was going to be in his bed by the end of the week.

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

ANNND I want to have this mans babies!!! LOL  Did that get your attention?  Does it make you want to know why?  Did you make you one click this book?  Well it should because you will agree with me after reading!!

Bailey and Hunter have grown up together.  Bailey is his sister’s bestie.  Hunter being 4 years older than Bailey didn’t think twice when it came time to escape to college but leaving Bailey behind caused her little 14-year-old heart to be a bit bruised.

Hunter has some feelings for Bailey but it was time for him to get and her to grow.  They two have some intense feelings for one another but 4 years comes, and Hunter is back.  He hasn’t been able to forget that one stolen kiss 4 years ago.  When he returns he is all about getting the girl.

I loved the story and how they chemistry between the two builds and builds between the two.  They have a love that couldn’t be fizzled after being apart for 4 years.  Now if people would just get outta the dang way!!!

Review by Jordan

This was such a great twist on your typical teenage crush on your best friend’s brother. Hunter is totally drool worthy with an air of the boy next door. I instantly fell for him. Seriously…. can someone find him for me? Bailey is the girl next door that doesn’t know how pretty she is and has been head over heels for Hunter Miles forever. They are two parts of a whole and their romance started with a simple stolen kiss. I didn’t want to put this story down and you won’t either. It’s sweet and romantic. Have I mentioned how drool worthy Hunter is?

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

YES!!  So much of this book….YYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!!  I loved it and was cheering as Noah and Ivy got revenge against all that people who tortured them.  Is it wrong that I was eating popcorn and cheering?  Probably but would I change it?  Not even close!!  #TeamIvyAndNoah

SO if you are not present with the serial then you gotta stop and get current.  You need to read this book in order to know why popcorn is a necessity for this book.

Noah and Ivy are all dressed up and marched out for the “Final Act” for this depraved group of people.  What they see makes them realize this is a lot bigger then they originally suspected.  The couple are being leered at and bid on by the highest bidder for multiple different scenarios…..the yuck factor is super high.  #CreepyOrgieScenes

When Noah gets a change…BOOM it all starts to fly.  Shots are being fires, Help is here to save our couple but they get separated.  Once they are separated, they BOTH face down their fears…the person who caused a lot of the mind games to them during their captured time.  I should NOT have been happy to see the people being murdered and yet I soooo was….LAWD Valerie, Agnes and Raoul……..these people are some kinda evil but the masked man….yeah……The scenes were tense and soooo awesome to read…..God does this make me a nut job??  Maybe I am now #ThanksLadies

I am super excited with a couple of surprise twists we are given in the book and I do kinda of wonder if MAYBE they might e revisiting the series with the way it ended????  I mean there is an open door there and I would be all for more Noah and Ivy!!

#WOTR18 #Review #TwinsieForTheDayJordan – 24 Roses by Elena M. Reyes

 

24 Roses

24 roses.
24 days filled with declarations of love.
24 moments where life will mark her as mine.

I’ve loved Anahi Pratt since she moved in next door at the age of twelve. With her knobby knees and a mouthful of braces she made my heart thump harshly inside my pre-pubescent chest. One look into the greenest eyes I’d ever seen and I was hooked for life. Owned.

However, I was tongue-tied and confused. Did the only thing I could and offered my friendship.

After years, those feelings never changed. Instead they grew—morphed into something deep and profound. But never once did she see me as more than a friend. Never did she see the man that worshiped the ground she walked on. The man that desired to be what she wanted. Needed.

I stayed on the sidelines until that day:

A crash.

Her life on the line and my world came to a screeching halt.

Life is short and changes in the blink of an eye, a lesson I suddenly understood. There wasn’t a second to wait. No more hiding behind the guise of friendship.

She was mine and it was time I claimed her.

Goodreads

Review by Jordan

Can Bryson win Anahi over and make her see that they are meant to be together? Their childhood friendship that has withstood years of other relationships and set ups culminate into an epic love story or will they realize they were never meant to be anything other than friends. Bryson is determined to woo Anahi with a rose each day and a determination to prove he the man that she has always wanted. Will 24 roses be enough? The story of best friends with hidden desires for each other is sweet in the best of ways. They are the cutest couple with their moms trying to constantly set them up. With everyone around them knowing their true desires, will the two of them finally be able to find their way to each other and finally live their happily ever after? I loved these characters and their magical story of how the find their true love within their best friend.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:
Holy balls on a cracker!
Elena M. Reyes and N. Isabelle Blanco are back and hotter and more intense than ever. Our poor Ivy and Noah are still being tortured and tested. The captor is having fun breaking them and molding them into her own little puppets. I love this insane little series but I really enjoyed that you got to see more of Noah and Ivy’s past in this book and how they actually met.
This book is hot. Insane. Delicious. Dark dark and more dark. Now that we possibly know who the captor is, I’m excited to see how Ivy and Noah will make it out of this situation.
