#Review #ReleaseDay – Craving Justice by Fiona Archer

Craving Justice (Sons of Sydney #1)

synopsis

Four Aussies in Seattle
Once brothers
Now strangers
As an unseen enemy takes aim
Four must stand as one for Justice to survive.

A man branded by his past

Seth Justice is tall, daring and dangerous. The former street kid from Sydney owns a thriving technology company in Seattle. But he has bigger goals―or should that be ghosts?―that drive him harder. On the verge of selling his business for a fortune, he’s celebrating when Harper Fox, daughter of the buyer, tumbles into his arms. The curvy café owner enchants him with her sassy personality. Soon they move from easy banter to a night of passion that reveals a sweet vulnerability in the soft-hearted woman.

A woman determined to control her future

After a lifetime of her domineering father’s scorn and rejection, Harper dances to her own beat. She has her café and surrounds herself with a chosen family of her eccentric staff and close friends. While she’s mostly content… her heart aches for more. But Harper has been burned before and doesn’t trust easily. That is, until a man with a panty-melting Aussie accent and a commanding stare entices her to take a chance—on him. When Seth takes charge in the bedroom and ties her control in knots, he awakens a need in Harper that leaves her hungry for more.

A new beginning worth fighting for

When an unseen enemy attacks the new life Seth and his brothers have built, the ensuing disaster tests not only his developing relationship with Harper, but also threatens to sever the last remaining bonds with his brothers. As Seth struggles to protect everything and everyone he loves, he has to determine if Harper is his enemy’s target—or accomplice.

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

I am a huge fan of Fiona’s other series so when she mentioned this new series, I jumped.  I love her writing style and the way she can weave a great suspense/thriller plot while making you fall in love with the flawed alpha male. This alpha with many flaws was Mr. Seth Justice. He was a street thug who has a street family.  They come to the rescue of an American and BOOM life changed forever.  He is taken in and adopted. The street thug becomes rich and successful.

The story begins with our Seth and his American brother Dillon setting up to sell their new business to a gentleman. When they go to celebrate a beautiful but clumsy woman literally falls into his arms…..enter our heroine Harper.  Well turns out she is the business man’s black sheep daughter.

The chemistry and connection between Harper and Seth is up front and center right from the beginning.  They hit it off and begin dating but then hit a snafu when an online cyber-attack hits him, his brothers and Seth’s new lady interest Harper, the Aussie goes full Alpha protecting what is his.

I loved Loved Loved Harpers Sassy spirit.  I loved how she never backed down to Seth even when things are said in a heated moment.  I loved Seth’s brothers and their bond.  They looked out for each other on the streets when they had nothing and continue when they have everything to lose.  OMG Seth……DROOL…..where is this man in RL???  LOL  He is the perfect mix of brooding, sexy, commanding, thoughtful and loving.

I was loving the plot and the “who is the hacker?” theme.  The ending of the story flew and I couldn’t put the book down. I thought I knew the “bad guy”  SEVERAL TIMES and was like NO WAY when the ending was revealed….I cannot wait for more from this series.  I am gonna tell ya…Adam, yeah I REALLY want to read his story and I hope Hope Hope it’s with Jinx!!!  Fingers Crosses!!

about the author

I live in the sunny environs of Sydney, Australia, and share a house with my dog, Letty. Oh, and the flock of cockatoos that take over the back yard each afternoon, demanding their feed of Arnott’s Milk Arrowroot Biscuits. Things get a little noisy around 3.00pm in our household.

My love of romance started back when I was twelve and my mum’s stash of Mills and Boon novels proved too much of a temptation. At fifteen, I decided the life of a romance writer was for me. Some…ah…years later, I’ve clawed together enough gumption to make my dream a reality.

When not sitting in front of the computer, I can be found in the garden or enthralled watching a murder mystery DVD. I limit myself to reading other authors’ work between writing my own stories. Books are my ‘shiny’ distractions.

Brenda’s Review

I received this Audible in exchange for an honest review.

I LOVE AUDIBLES!!!  I listen in the car to and from work (after I drop my kiddos off).  So it’s only about 10 minutes at a time.  It sometimes takes me a while to finish one.

I was immediately captured by the cover!  Wow!  He’s Hot!  The character’s name is Adam and he TOTALLY looks like Adam Levine!!  and hot can that get any hotter……. he has a British accent!  YEP!

Loved the voices for Adam and Ellie!

It did take me a bit to get used to the voices and their phrases.  I didn’t understand a few of them.  But I got the idea of them, usually.

The beginning of the story was a little slow for me.  I was anxious for Adam and Ellie to get together.  They both had rough childhoods and overcame a lot of tragedy.  They are very young to start the story, but soon the story goes to several years later.  I was a lot more comfortable with that.

You will love and get frustrated with both Adam and Ellie.  You want to yell at them at times (I actually did….many times – remember, I listen in the car, so I yelled at my dashboard a lot.  I’m sure that  people were laughing at me at the red lights, but I don’t care!  lol)

You will also love Dax. I really hope that the next book is about him.

Back to Adam and Ellie….. after many years of back and forth and miscommunications and heartache and grieving and, well you get my point…. You will get your Happily Ever After.

Well worth a listen on Audible.

I am a reader first and foremost, that’s what led me to begin writing down all of the stories crammed into my head.

I like to write about the dark side of fame and how it truly affects those living in the fishbowl of today’s celebrity-obsessed culture. And if you haven’t noticed, I LOVE writing about sexy fighters. I also write M/M as Leigh Carman, my first book will be out mid 2016 with Dreamspinner Press.

After growing up in New England, I currently live outside of Atlanta, GA with my husband and two children.

When I’m not spinning tales of the rich and famous, I’m a full time procrastinator. I love chocolate, dogs with squished in faces, and the Boston Red Sox.

#Review – The Beautiful Dead by Daryl Banner

The Beautiful Dead (The Beautiful Dead, #1)

synopsis

She’s dead.

In fact, the whole world’s dead. Every single person, apparently. Unburied and reimagined into a beautiful living-dead woman called Winter, she is doomed to spend the rest of eternity in a quaint, peaceful city with no hunger, no sickness and no bills to pay. Her Second Life is perfect in every way possible.

So why is she so bent on destroying it all?

After angering the mayor, befriending rebel headless teenagers and igniting romance with a dark and brooding neighbor, she finds herself wrestling madly with a First Life she cannot remember and this Second Life she cannot accept. Not to mention the maniacal army of rotting corpses who want her dead. Again.

But none of that matters in comparison to an even worse problem. There’s a guest in her house. A rude, good-looking man on the run … a man with a heartbeat.

angies review

I received this book from the author.
I loved the MM series I read from Daryl. When he offered me a cop of his Zombie book, I jumped. I mean HELLO ZOMBIES!!! LOL Well if you like Zombies like me I am sure you would have jumped too.
SO our heroine wakes up and is told her new After Death name or New Life name is Winter. She is kinda confused and not really sure WTF is going on. She is “remade up” to fix damage from her “death” and sent on her way. She doesn’t get along very well with her reaper and is really confused. She decided to try and re-end her life but meets tall dark and also handsomely dead Grimsky. HE is trying to help her understand their world when she is met with another issue…..a HUMAN who is taking shelter in her home. Now some of you zombie haters can stop worrying because Winter and her peps don’t eat Humans…ERRR Or do they??? Moving along…..We then meet even more new characters like the undead queen and her army of the brainwashed undead…..Shesh it was a crazy cast of characters who kept you laughing IE Winter picking her finger nail off accidentally to GAPSING IE The undead army bowing to Winter……
This book at times is so silly and fun but then after you read it your like WHOOOOOO…..seriously that is not joking but RL matters….It makes you look at things in a new perspective while touching on it in a light fashion. I mean who knew Zombies could teach me a lesson????

#ReleaseDay #DoubleReview – Dirty by Kylie Scott

Dirty (Dive Bar, #1)

synopsis

The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn’t know whether to burn down the church or sit and cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it’s with his best man is another thing all together. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she’d marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she already tried Mr. Right and discovered he’s all wrong-maybe it’s time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what’s wrong with getting dirty?

angies review

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

I look forward to a lot of authors and their new releases and Kylie has been one of my favorites.  I was super exited to read her new series after waving good bye to the Stage Dive guys last year.  When we were introduced to Vaughan, I was super excited to see more of him and get his story.  We know that his band breaks up after the tours over and I wondered what was up with him.  Well, Poor Vaughan comes home to a hot mess!!

The story begins with Lydia finding out some stuff about her fiancée literally minutes before walking down the aisle.  So what does any self-respecting woman do….she runs and flings herself over the fence to hide in Vaughan’s house.  She is very surprised when he comes in and finds her there.  Their #CrazyAtFirstSight story them begins.

Lydia and Vaughan have a crazy “I get you” vibe.  They each understand the cray of the other person and that makes an attraction grow…well that and her amazing boobs, hey that is what Vaughan says anyway!!  Vaughan is there when Lydia is dealing with her ex and his family. Then Lydia is there to help him with his family and their bar.  The have a lot of other drama/crazy to deal with and then they find themselves finding trust in the other when the last thing they should be doing is trusting anyone.

I liked the story and giggled a few times but I did feel a bit of a disconnect in the beginning of the story and at times I thought the story was developing slowly but a bit over the top??  Does that make sense???

I did enjoy seeing Vaughan, meeting his sister and the bar employees.  I can’t wait for Twist to come out next year.

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book via netgalley for an honest review.

I love Kylie Scott’s work and Stage Dive Series is one of my favorites. I was supper excited when I found out Vaughan was the next book in this new series. I was stoked we were going to get to learn more about him.

This starts off with Lydia about to get married when she finds out the truth about her fiancée. Lydia freaks out and runs only to find herself breaking into a strangers bathroom window trying to get away. Next thing she knows she is a mess cuddled in the tub looking up at a massive man.

Vaughan is taken back by seeing this crazy broken woman in his tub. But there is something there between them or maybe it’s just her boobs at first. They both have drama they are trying to deal with. However, Vaughan tries to help her out and in turn she decides to help Vaughan’s family by helping out at the bar.

I so loved seeing Mal he was a great high point. I wish we could have gotten more of Lydia’s background from pre fiancée days because I really didn’t connect to her and with her strong personality toward the end I think I could have. However, I enjoyed meeting Nell, Boyd, Erica and even Pat and Joe. I cannot wait to see and learn more about these guys.  Now to wait for TWIST to come out.

about the author

Based in Queensland, Australia with her two children and one delightful husband, she reads, writes and never dithers around on the internet.

LH excerpt.png

Cian circled the warehouse once before rolling his car to a stop and killing the lights.  The second shift break was about to finish at the distribution center and from his surveillance, he knew Darwin Fergus would be slinking out the side door to sneak in an extra smoke break before heading back to work.  He got out of the car and crouched down behind a dumpster a few feet away from where he was sure Darwin would be exiting the building, remaining unseen until the opportunity he needed presented itself. Keeping an eye out for anyone that might spot him, he thought back over the information he’d gathered on him while he waited for his target to appear.

 

Darwin Fergus, age 42

Arrested on multiple counts of fraud, larceny, and suspected homicide

Released after insufficient evidence brought to the DA to hold the case over to trial

Estimated net worth stolen over $200,000 over the past ten years.  Victims of choice: elderly

and disabled

 

So the fucker liked to take advantage of old people with his schemes and lies, ultimately swindling them out of their retirement checks.  He’d crippled dozens of individuals financially and in some cases, it was suspected he’d caused their deaths by overdoses on medications when he was close to being exposed.  The only reason he’d been arrested was in thanks to one of the victim’s grandchildren overhearing part of a conversation and putting the pieces together.  Unfortunately, it wasn’t soon enough and her grandfather had been one of the ones to lose his life. She’d come forward with what she knew, but it wasn’t enough to convict and he’d walked away a free man.  Until now.

Like clockwork, the side door opened and Darwin slipped out.  Cian slipped the needle from his pocket and with the stealth of a predator, approached him from behind and pounced, locking an arm around his neck and cutting off his air supply. Darwin was not a small man by any means and outweighed him by almost fifty pounds.  But where Darwin was large and soft, Cian was lean and hard.  His strength won out and he had Darwin down on the ground and the needle inserted in his neck before he could even muster a shout.

“Fuck, you’re heavy,” he complained, panting hard as he looked down at the disgusting excuse for a man at his feet.  Taking him by the ankles, he made short work of dragging him to his waiting open trunk.  It would be a tight fit, but he’d made it work before and he’d do so again.  The interior was lined with plastic, ready and waiting to transport the fucker to the hospital.  Grunting from the exertion, he wrestled Darwin into the trunk and slammed it, satisfied.

“Let’s go for a ride, shall we?”  He got no reply, not that he expected one, and hopped in the driver’s seat. About a block from the hospital he pulled into an alleyway and stopped. Dragging Darwin from the trunk, he smacked him in the face until he came around, groaning from being groggy and out of it.

“Are you with me there, Darwin?  Can you hear me?” Cian peered at him, his pupils were dilated but he seemed to be understanding him.

“Ghaft ahappped?” his words were a gargled mess.  Good.  The drugs were working.

“Oh, not to worry. I’m gonna take good care of you, Darwin.” Relief flashed in his eyes but it quickly turned to horror as he watched Cian pick up an iron bar from the trunk. “Don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing,” his grin was full of malice as he brought the bar down.

Several minutes later, Cian rushed into the ER, with Darwin’s arms over his shoulders, dragging him along as best he could.

“Get me a gurney! This man’s taken a severe beating,” he helped two orderlies lift Darwin onto the gurney when they raced over. He tossed his keys to Jenson who was standing a few feet away, wide-eyed.  “My car is in an alley a block away.  Get it and move it here.  Do not fuck that up, Jenson,” he ordered. Jenson nodded and hurried away to follow instructions.

Reynolds appeared in the hallway and after a slight nod, Cian called out to the nurse behind the desk.

“Book me OR-B, I’m heading up there now with him.  His injuries are extreme and we need to get in there now.” The nurse nodded and grabbed for the phone, barking orders that the OR was needed stat.

Following behind the gurney, Cian’s steps were filled with glee.  Another successful hunt and soon it would be another successful kill and scumbag eliminated.  He should get a goddamn fucking medal for the clean-up work he did for the city.  Vigilante his ass, he was a motherfucking saint.

“Oh!” He whipped his head around at the sound of a startled squeal and locked eyes with Athena who was standing directly in front of him with an armload of charts and a fresh green salad. She took in his appearance slowly, the blood staining his clothes and the manic look in his eyes.  Confusion and then fear flashed across her features as she tried to make sense of what she was seeing.

She took a small step forward, but Cian cut her off before she could speak.  “Out of the way, Dr. Payne.  Can’t you see we have a critical patient here?” he barked, watching her flinch at his tone. Flustered, she stepped back quickly.

“I—I’m sorry. I thought…” she stammered.

“You thought what?  You thought whatever you needed to say was more important than this man getting to surgery?  I’d pegged you for smarter than that,” he stepped around her without another word and ignored the twinge of guilt he felt at seeing the hurt in her eyes his words caused.  It was for the best that she stop idolizing him in more than a mentor capacity.  Nothing would ever come of the connection between them.  It was ridiculous to think otherwise.

He headed into the scrub room to prepare while the team got Darwin prepped for surgery.  A black rage had settled over him, more intense than he’d ever felt before.  The fear he’d seen in Athena’s eyes haunted him.  Was she afraid of him?  She was right to be, but he’d never hurt her.  The fact that she might think he would, bothered him more than he liked, turning his anger into a murderous rage.

Entering the OR, he stalked straight to Darwin’s side, satisfied when he saw that he was coherent.  “Mr. Fergus, good evening.  Pleasure to have you here in my OR.” Darwin struggled against the binds holding down his arms and legs, eyes frozen in fear as Reynolds’ approached from the other side and fitted him with the gag.

“Sorry, guess we won’t be hearing much more from you, now will we?  What a shame.  I was looking forward to hearing all about how you weaseled money away from the elderly; how you murdered the ones that were close to figuring out your con.  You’re despicable, you know that?  To rob the elderly is like harming defenseless babies.  Did it make you feel powerful?  Did you enjoy the thrill of taking from another?  Did you get off on it, Darwin?” The more he spoke, the closer he got until they were almost nose to nose.  Darwin’s entire body was quaking in fear; fear that Cian fed off, his terror transported into his blood and gave him the initiative he craved to get the job done.

“Saw,” he demanded.  Patricia complied and handed him the small bone saw.  Fixing on his goggles, he cheerfully got to work, starting with Darwin’s right index finger.  He lowered the blade and applied just the right amount of pressure to torturously cut through the skin and bone, removing the finger completely.  Darwin’s body bucked and thrashed and he screamed with all his might into the gag, but none of that halted Cian’s task.  He removed two more fingers before tiring of the saw and switching tactics.

“Do you know, losing all your money…it’s like dying a slow death.  First, they take your electricity.  Then, you have no money for food.  Not long after that, they’ll repossess your belongings.  Until finally, they take your home from you.  Have you ever been homeless, Darwin?  Ever lost everything that meant something to you?  It’s agonizing.  And you—you caused that for these people.  They trusted you and you took advantage, ruining what little of their lives they had left.  And when they didn’t comply?  Well, then you stole their lives.  I think it’s only fair you feel some agony as well.  Scalpel.”

Lorna passed him the scalpel and he expertly made a small incision in Darwin’s neck, pleasure filling him as he watched the blood seep from the wound and onto the table.  Darwin gurgled and choked, his own blood starting to strangle him.

Cian leaned down to whisper in his ear. “I could leave you like this for hours.  You’d bleed out, or you’d maybe strangle on your blood first, who knows.  What matters to me is that you suffer.”

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

EEEP!!  Another awesome sifter series closed from Kenzie.  I love this sort and sweet (well not really sweet more like naughty) books.

This story continues from where the last one ended.  Cole was hired by a friend PI to protect celebrity actress and bear shifter Amberly.  She is not too thrilled to be stuck in the bayou. Her house was recently shot up and so she is in hiding with Cole as her handsome protector.  When Amberly gets word she is going to lose her coveted role, she flips.  When a bomb show up it sends her and Cole running deep into the bayou to hide out.

Their story is much like the other brothers in the series.  They can feel the “Mate Bond” and Cole will do anything to keep and protect his mate even if he gets hurt in the process.

The “who” and “why” of the stalking plot we pretty good.  We never really know until the very end the reasoning.  I enjoyed this book but wish there and been a little bit more.  This book felt rushed in comparison to the other 2 in the series.

Blurb

I was afraid to fly.

He made me soar.

After years of climbing the ladder of success in the music industry, I finally had

everything I could want.

Yet I still found myself wandering through life alone.

Captain Evan Roth was the one man I never saw coming.

Tall, dark, mysterious… Straight.

We were both damaged beyond repair and searching for something so elusive we

weren’t sure it even existed.

But, when two broken souls collide in midair, falling is a given.

I just never expected to crave the spiral down.

#CoverReveal – In the Red by Chelsea Camaron

 

The event that shook one small town to its core was never solved. The domino effect of one person’s crime going unpunished is beyond measure. 
He’s no saint. 
Dover ‘Collector’ Ragnes rides with only five brothers at his back. Nomads with no place to call home, they never stay in one place too long. Together, they are the Devil’s Due MC, and their only purpose is to serve justice their way for unsolved crimes everywhere they go. 
She’s not afraid to call herself a sinner. 
Emerson Flint still remembers the loss of her elementary school best friend. She is all grown up, but the memories still haunt her of the missing girl. Surrounding herself with men at the tattoo shop, she never questions her safety. Her life is her art. Her canvas is the skin of others. 
However, danger is at her door. 
Will Dover overcome the history he shares with Emerson in time? Will Emerson lead him to the retribution he has always sought? 
Love, hate, anger, and passion collide as the time comes, and the devil demands his due. 
Each book in the Devil’s Due MC is a stand alone, full length novel. Contains adult content, language, and violence not suitable for readers under the age of 18. This is not an exact depiction of life in a motorcycle club, but rather a work of fiction meant to entertain.
