#review #ClassicTales #ModernReTelling – The Count, Twisted Classics Book 1 by Monica Corwin

The Count (Twisted Classics Book 1)

The mad priest gave me everything.
Twenty-one years in prison allows a man time to process.
To plot.
To plan.
I’ll take my vengeance in money, in power, and most importantly, on her body.
Mercedes Mondego sold me into hell, leading me to the altar like a sheep to a cliff’s edge.
Every thread I place on the board will wrench together and lead me back to her. Oh, but I’m done with love, and there is nothing left in me except an animal.
The mad priest gave me everything to exact my revenge.


Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest opinion/Review.

GAH!!!  I am such a crazy person for classic lit and I FLOVE the Count of Monte Cristo, so I was soooo on board for this book!

The book is obviously a bit different then the original hence the Twisted Classics series name but don’t worry classic friends, you will enjoy this book just as much even with the changes.

Will/The Count/ Eddie is after the woman and the men who put him in prison.  He is going to destroy them one at a time.  But taking HER down is the biggest victory for him.

Mercy is the boss.  She is ruthless and takes no prisoners which is why she is the one in charge.  She put her family away and took over the empire but soon discovers what a rotten empire she has under her.

The chemistry between Will and Mercy is great.  So many times, I was like JUST TELL HER WILL and then other times I was like GAH WHY DID YOU DO THAT MERCY!!!

The story line will keep you on your toes with the action and all the bad guys.  I swear this town was like Gotham with all the bad dudes running amuck!!

The final chapters when everything comes to the front and we see even more things shake out I legit did a gasp!! I was wondering and hoping and then even more giddy when I read about….eeeep I cant tell you sorry but trust me….if you love classic lit or if you are a fan of Monica’s stories then you will want to pick this one up.

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

I am like a Monica super fan.  I love how she can turn classic lit into modern stories.  When I saw she published this naughty little number I grabbed it because I haven’t really ready anything of hers that is over the top naught plus its RH….SOLD!!

This story is about the love triangle of Caden, Winter and Aurelia.  Caden and Aurelia are the first couple to hook up but when we get Caden in the story it makes the duo a much stronger triumvirate.

The scenes are super hawt and very yummy to read if you want a sexy fun novella then this is it for you.

The 2nd story in the book is an addition to Aurelia’s harem of men with the addition of Abel.  He wasn’t the most honest of men when he approached our trio so when everything happens, we learn a lot more about this group then before.

I would love to read more from the story and hope Monica can write more.  Abel wasn’t in the boo klong enough and I REALLY want a Caden/Winter SCENE!  JUSY SAYING!!

#NewRelease #Review – Hollywood King, Twisted Classics Book #2 by Monica Corwin

Hollywood King

Heath was never my brother.

Nor my step brother, or any other relation our family tried to impose on us.

He was always just Heath, and at the end he was my Heath.
Ten years ago he disappeared, and within three years of his absence he’d taken over Hollywood.

The world my father built.

The world he wasn’t good enough for.

The world he’d been denied when he was told he couldn’t have me.

Now he’s back, and he only wants one thing…to take it all.

Even me.

Hollywood King is Wuthering Heights crashed into the glitz and glam of Hollywood Royalty. A stand alone book with the happily ever after you always wanted for Cathy and Heathcliff.

Goodreads

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

*Clapping*  GAH!!  I love the fact Monica takes classic literature and revamps it to modern times while also giving it her “spin”.

If you read Wuthering Heights, like I did, we all know how it turns out and I was like “Monica GUUUURL!!  You can’t do that to me!!”  Trust me people the anxiety I felt made me worry!!

Health and Cathy are brother and sister by adoption.  The love they felt at an early age was not a true brother and sister love.  *wink wink* The beginning 3 chapters explains a lot about them and their youth plus sets the stage for this novel.

Heath and Cathy are two such stubborn idiots.  They both want the other, but PRIDE is to blame for their separation.  They both are so proud of the other and what they have accomplished and feel they are less then deserving for the other.

When a family situation brings them back together the fire between them cannot be contained anymore.  Of course, we have some twists and turns plaguing the couple at every turn.

The last few chapters I was in high stress….life Defo Con 5 Mode people.  The tears were threatening to fall with each page I turned.  GAH!!!  If you are a fan of classic lit then you need to take the time to read because you will not be disappointed.

#Review – Twelfth Floor (Twisted Shakespeare #2) by Monica Corwin @Monica_Corwin

Twelfth Floor

This isn’t your high school Shakespeare.

Violet Cesario fled the shipwreck of her father’s company to Illyria Pharmaceuticals. As the newly appointed, and untried CFO, the board gave her thirty days to prove her worth. Thirty days to bring up the numbers. Thirty days to fend off the advances of her secretary, Olivia. Thirty days of hiding her submissiveness inside a dominant’s shell.

Thirty days gets complicated when Duke Orsino, the CEO, offers her a deal. Help him win over Olivia and he will sway the board in Violet’s favor. If she agrees to teach him the games behind dominance and submission Violet’s career will be made. As the play turns more and more true to life, the lines blur between fantasy and reality. Can Violet hide her desire for Duke long enough for him to woo Olivia? And if he succeeds can Violet endure it for the sake of her career?

Goodreads

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

Holy Hotness and Chemistry is this book good.  I loved the take on this story.  The girl who loves the guy and pretends to help him get the other girl.  Violet, Duke and Olivia are a twisted trio for dang sure.  Poor Olivia has no idea what is in store for her.

Violet first sees her CEO while he is almost swallowing his newest conquest outside of the building at work.  She decides to play the strong working woman to not fall at his feet and become one of the many notches on his bed post.  Olivia is her bright eyed and beautiful secretary who seems to be a bit overly interested in serving her new boss???

Duke walks in to the office of his new CFO and is stunned that the one woman he can’t have, Olivia, is stumbling to please her new boss.  He can’t stand it and it makes him insanely jealous.  When he walks in on an intimate moment between the two woman he is driven to find out HOW, in a matter of days, Violet has gotten to Olivia.

The two strike up a deal.  Get Duke to win over Olivia and Duke will get Violet a permeant position in the company.  Sounds easy right??  OH friends it is so not easy.  Ya see, Ms. Violet is FAR from the dominant woman she pretends to be and is slowly falling more and more in love with her boss.  Duke is so confused because he is starting to lust over Olivia less and less and is more consumed with Violet!!  What is happening to him.  When he finally has his chance with Olivia, he is livid because it seems he is too consumed with Violet!!

The sexual tension is amazing in this book.  Duke and Violet are such perfect people for each other.  They both push the other to do better and be better.  The twists in the story are AMAZING!!  I like the author did a great job transforming each character and making you want them to want more from the other in the ending.

#Review #Mafia- Professional Liar by Monica Corwin @Monica_Corwin

Professional Liar

My sister Bianca and I have two rules governing the dispensation of our trust funds.

One. I get married first.
Two. She gets married second.

Neither of us will see a penny until we are both “properly cared for.” My father had a terrible sense of humor.

I turn to the only man who can help me. Even when the last time I saw him he said he hated me. Even when I love him as much as I loathe him. Even when he’s all wrong.

Liar. Thief. Killer.

Those are just a few words whispered about him in back alleys. To me he’s Pierce, to everyone else, he’s Pierson St. James, local mobster and second in charge of the infamous Wild Dogs.

He may be disreputable, but desperation calls for extreme measures. A long time ago, he promised to marry me. Now I’m going to hold him to that promise.

And we are both going to regret it.

This isn’t your high school Shakespeare…and you’ve never read The Taming of the Shrew like this.

This is a standalone romance with alpha heroes, alpha heroines, and a whole lot of foul language.

Goodreads

I purchased this book.

Ok so I was at a book convention when I saw this author’s banner.  The covers to all of her books were stunning.  I had to take a better look.  I opened her Goodreads Page and read all her blurbs.  THIS blurb stood out the most, but the others made me go HRMMMMM too.    I ran to her table and grabbed Pierce.  I happily sat down in the hotel room and devoured this book.  Pierce…shut the hell up…sexy as hell and sweet as hell too.  If Kat doesn’t realize how lucky she is I’mma have ta smack her upside her dang head!!!

Ok so Kat and Pierce have had a roller coaster of a love life for on and off the past 10 years.  They are both in mafia families, however, their families are definitely very different in protecting their own.  When Kat finds out she has to get married, she runs to the only man she has ever loved and begs him to go along with it.

Pierce has loved Kat, The Shrew, forever.  When he sees her coming to him in desperation he is angry, but once he realizes he can have the woman of his dreams forever….he jumps.

Pierce is the silent hero of this book.  He is the quiet calm Kat needs.  I was a bit stunned to learn what his family does for a living because he is most definitely an Anit-Hero but I still loved him.  Kat is so thrown by the way her family and his family are run.  She is a bit outta her comfort zone for sure with how caring they all are and how they back each other 110%.

When Pierce, Kat and her sister become the targets of a Mafia coup, Kat will do anything to keep the ones she loves safe even if it means breaking her heart in the process.

I would love love love to get more from these two even if it is a book about Bianca because she is hilarious!
