Homeless. Hungry. Desperate.

Beneath Blood and Bone (Thicker Than Blood #2) by Madeline Sheehan and Claire C. Riley

It is the end of the world…

They call him Eagle. Like the grand and beautiful animal that symbolizes freedom. And during these dark times, when humanity is full of nothing but suffering, a man with such a powerful name should be a beacon of hope.

He is anything but.

Her name is Autumn. Though she hasn’t said this name, or much of anything else, in the four years since the fall of civilization. A shell of her former self, and living wild in a cave at the bottom of a ravine, Autumn is accustomed to being alone. She prefers it actually, especially when her only other options for company are either trying to kill her, or worse, lock her up inside their walls.

Captured by Eagle’s people Autumn is suddenly thrust back into the land of the living, though she would hardly call it living. The community of Purgatory is full of sinners, the most evil of which seem to have set their sights on her.

In an act born of anger and defiance, Eagle becomes Autumn’s unexpected savior forcing these two solitary people into one another’s broken worlds. Neither knows quite what to make of the other, but one thing is certain.
To survive Purgatory, they will need to learn how to rely on each other; a feat that could quite possibly teach them how to live again.

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000040_00005]

Suit (Twin Duo #1) by Jettie Woodruff (Uber Angsty)

When my sister, Isabelle showed up, just ahead of a tropical storm, nostalgia and a need to reconnect took us on a ride…directly into the eye of a different kind of disaster. I woke from a coma unaware that I even had a twin and married to a man with two little girls. Although I fell madly in love with the children that I didn’t remember, I didn’t feel like I belonged with Paxton Pierce. I couldn’t be who he wanted me to be no matter how hard I tried. But things aren’t always as they seem. I fought my own demons, trying not to be the submissive he required me to be, yet I craved it like a drug. I wanted him.
Once upon a time I was an identical twin.
And then I wasn’t.

MY REVIEW  –  Amazon (Continue with Slut, Twin Duo #2)



Madame X (Madame X #1) by Jasinda Wilder (Jaysus, this is cray cray)

Madame X invites you to test the limits of control in this provocative new novel from New York Times bestselling author Jasinda Wilder.
My name is Madame X.
I’m the best at what I do.
And you’d do well to follow my rules…

Hired to transform the uncultured, inept sons of the wealthy and powerful into decisive, confident men, Madame X is a master of the art of control. With a single glance she can cut you down to nothing, or make you feel like a king.

But there is only one man who can claim her body—and her soul.

Undone time and again by his exquisite dominance, X craves and fears his desire in equal measure. And while she longs for a different path, X has never known anything or anyone else—until now…

joseph fallen

Joseph Fall (The Estate #0.5) by M.S. Willis (One of the most fucked up books I think I’ll ever read)

There is a fine line between genius and madness…
Between love and hate,
Between right and wrong.

Joseph had created The Estate for her…
His wife,
The woman he chose to bear his child.
She was beauty unsurpassed;
And her song was unlike anything he’d ever known.

However, their love was a story that would not find a happy ending.

In this prequel novella to the Estate series, follow Joseph Carmichael as he creates a world unlike any other. Because, in order to comprehend The Estate, you must understand Joseph; but, in order to understand Joseph, you must discover how a man falls from light into the pitch black depths of ultimate darkness.

MY REVIEW  – Amazon  I WILL READ THE REST OF THIS SERIES… JUST NEED TO STEP AWAY FROM IT FOR A BIT… WHOA! (Madeline Abducted #2 is the next book in the series)



The Filthy Series (1-6) by Megan D. Martin (Addicting)

She runs from darkness
Into more of the same.
She runs to darkness,
She can never stay away.

Faye Turner is a nineteen-year-old homeless prostitute addicted to cocaine.

Her life is simple, bouncing from one high to the next, bent over greasy truck seats for faceless men. But everything changes when Rhett Hale comes back into her life. Her devilishly handsome step-brother brings life-changing news and a special kind of hate reserved only for Faye. But all the hate in the world can’t hide Rhett’s lust for her.

He wants something wild. Something filthy.

And Faye is tempted to give him just that.

But nothing is simple. Rhett isn’t the only part of her past that comes back.
Faye can’t run.
She can’t hide.
She becomes twined up in the razor sharp lies she fought so hard to get away from.

But lies only bloody the path to the truth.

MY REVIEW  – Amazon



The Bourbon Kings (The Bourbon Kings #1) by J.R. Ward (Loved it)

For generations, the Bradford family has worn the mantle of kings of the bourbon capital of the world. Their sustained wealth has afforded them prestige and privilege—as well as a hard-won division of class on their sprawling estate, Easterly. Upstairs, a dynasty that by all appearances plays by the rules of good fortune and good taste. Downstairs, the staff who work tirelessly to maintain the impeccable Bradford facade. And never the twain shall meet.

For Lizzie King, Easterly’s head gardener, crossing that divide nearly ruined her life. Falling in love with Tulane, the prodigal son of the bourbon dynasty, was nothing that she intended or wanted—and their bitter breakup only served to prove her instincts were right. Now, after two years of staying away, Tulane is finally coming home again, and he is bringing the past with him. No one will be left unmarked: not Tulane’s beautiful and ruthless wife; not his older brother, whose bitterness and bad blood know no bounds; and especially not the ironfisted Bradford patriarch, a man with few morals, fewer scruples, and many, many terrible secrets.

As family tensions—professional and intimately private—ignite, Easterly and all its inhabitants are thrown into the grips of an irrevocable transformation, and only the cunning will survive.

MY REVIEW  – Amazon (Book 2, The Angels’ Share comes out 7.26.2016)



Thicker Than Blood (Thicker Than Blood #1) by Madeline Sheehan and Claire C. Riley (This is one of those genres I don’t usually read, but loved it)

A true friendship never dies.

Leisel and Evelyn lost everything. Husbands. Families. Friends. Lives that made sense. All they had left was each other, and a friendship that could withstand anything…

Even an apocalypse.

Until one fateful night, the marginal safety they’d come to rely on comes to a vicious and brutal end. With the help of Alex & Jami, both unlikely allies, Leisel and Evelyn are able to escape their shattered sanctuary only to find themselves face-to-face with a much altered, much crueler life where they have to find the way—and the will—to stay alive in a world they no longer recognize.

Traveling across a broken and infection-ridden country; the road-weary group are pitted against endless violence, improbable circumstances, and the ultimate loss.
Everything comes at a price—especially safety, the cost of which could very well strip them of the one thing they’ve tried so hard to cling to: their humanity.

Yet along with all the trials they’re forced to endure, there’s also hope in the form of love. Having loved Leisel from afar, Alex attempts to put the pieces of her fractured heart back together.

But in such a savage world, is there room for love?

In a place of nightmares-made-reality, where the living should be feared far more than the dead, an unbreakable friendship and a love amongst all odds can mean the difference between life and death.

There are friends…

And then there are Leisel and Evelyn.

MY REVIEW  –   Amazon


vandal cover

Vandal (Ashes & Embers #2) by Carian Cole (Oh God, this man, this book, so broken)

She takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged.
Yes I had broken her, ravished her life, destroyed her happiness. I brought her to ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me.

Reckless in her agony.

She is a mirror of my own tortured soul.

But what I took away I can give back.
In ways she cannot even begin to imagine.

She is everything right in all my wrongs.

She loves me. She needs me.

She has no idea I’m the one who wrecked her life.

** Vandal is a dark romance with light BDSM. He is emotionally damaged and manipulative, but still wants love. This book deals with death, grief, deception, substance abuse, depression, and graphic sex. If this is not your thing, you can skip this book and move onto the next in the series and you will not be lost. Vandal is not the sweetheart that the other guys in Ashes & Embers are – but even the dark and damaged deserve to be loved, right?

MY REVIEW  –  Amazon (Start with STORM Book 1)



Fervent (Condemned Series Book 3) by Gemma James (This series made my skin crawl and my eye twitch)

Fervent is the third book in the Condemned series.

I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.

Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe. I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me.

He’ll even die for me.

NOTE TO READERS: FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense.

Blood of Eve (Trilogy of Eve #2) by Pam Godwin (Again, another one of the those genres I don’t usually read, but ended up being one of my favorites of all times)

Two years into the aphid plague, there’s little hope left. Food and ammo are scarce. The mutated monsters are growing faster, smarter. And the ratio of men to women is millions to one. Mankind faces imminent extinction.

But Evie carries a cure for women.

Fiercely protected by three men, she sets out to heal as many infected females as possible. The journey becomes more complicated as her feelings for her guardians evolve, and theirs for her intensify.

When a voice from the past prophesies a solution for the dying race, she must make a choice.

Will she survive for love?

Or will she die for it?

MY REVIEW  –  Amazon (Start the Trilogy with Dead of Eve



Unlawful Desire (ALFA Private Investigations #2) by Chelle Bliss (What can I say, I have a slight Chelle Bliss obsession.  This is an excellent new series)

My fiancée ripped a piece of my heart out when I caught her with another man. It made me jaded, and I swore off relationships. But as with any plans, life had a way of making me its bitch.

When a way too young bombshell walked into my world, my heart began to beat again. Georgia asked me for one night—nothing more—and with no strings attached.

Our night of passion turned my universe upside down.

When she almost slipped out of my life, I knew I had to make her mine. Willing to do anything to protect her, I took justice into my own hands. My feelings for her brought out a side of me I thought I’d left behind.

I had to lose myself to be found again.

MY REVIEW  –  Amazon (Start the series with Sinful Intent


Vagrant Cover

Vagrant (Condemned Series Book #4) by Gemma James (Thank God Gemma finally got this final installment out.  It was a great ending to a magnificent serial)

This is the conclusion to Alex and Rafe’s story.

I’ve finally got what I want.

Rafe Mason loves me.
He’s forgiven me.
Survived for me.
Killed for me.

But is it enough?

His darkness owns me.
Consumes me.
Bends me.
Heals me.

Loving him shouldn’t be this hard.

NOTE: VAGRANT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part four of the CONDEMNED series.

With out me cover book 7

Without Me (Men of Inked #7) by Chelle Bliss

I’d led a selfish existence.

I liked who I was. Hell, I loved myself.

Women threw themselves at me and I took what they offered without remorse. I promised them nothing.

I sank my teeth into life, holding on to the bitch like my very existence depended on it.

Time passed.

Women came and went.

The second I let my guard down and released the hold I had on life… What was my award for such carelessness?

A love so spectacular and heart wrenching that it threw me for a loop. When I was in too deep to escape, my greatest fears became reality.

This is my story.

My downfall.

My salvation.

MY REVIEW  –  Amazon (The Men of Inked series starts with Throttle Me which is #Free start it now)



Dirty Ties by Pam Godwin

I race to finance it.
I evade to protect it.
I kill to attain it.
I planned everything.

Except her.
The alluring, curvaceous blonde at the finish line.
With sapphire eyes that cheat and lie.
Whose powerful family murdered mine.

I hate her.
I want her.

I know she’s hiding something.
But so am I.

MY REVIEW  –  Amazon


The Decimation of Mae

The Decimation of Mae (The Blue Butterfly #1) by D.H. Sidebottom

The Devil visited me three times in my life; albeit, my short life. Not in the physical sense, you must understand, but very much literally.

He was persistent, resolute and tenacious. His ruthless greed to annihilate me was utterly disturbing. I am sure if he had hierarchy, the man at the top would have dragged his arse into Hell’s prison for his unscrupulous methods.

I was just fifteen when I first became aware of what he was capable of. This initial taste of him set the playing field for how my life was to be lived – for want of a better word.
He mocked me, showed me mercilessly how he played the game and how he liked to cheat at said game. He ridiculed and taunted me until, six months later, he won and took something of so much importance from me that I would never be the same again.

His second visit was, in my eyes, so much more cruel and heartless. I know we’re talking about the Devil here, and yes, you have a right to say he had no heart but even then, even when I was so utterly broken, I begged to differ and hoped – no, prayed – that somewhere deep in the caverns of his black, tortured soul there was something that beat and confused his emotions once in a while.

The third visit was somewhat different than the other two. He tried, and at first succeeded to bring me to my knees once and for all, but then something happened. God finally intervened and altered Satan’s intention; he sent hope and morphed the Devil’s minion into an Angel, hoping to break and shatter the anguish and suffering. He gave the ability for me to feel pleasure in pain, order in the chaos and light in the darkness.
But in giving me a reprieve, he also gave me something that would finally and ultimately obliterate me. He gave me the capability to love, therefore giving me the ability to be destroyed.
And Satan made sure that I was destroyed. Cruelly, viciously and sadistically.

I am Mae Swift, and this is the story of my decimation.

This story doesn’t contain hearts and flowers, it doesn’t even contain the word ‘love’. It isn’t for the fainthearted, nor those who want romance and happy ever afters. It’s dark, in fact it goes beyond the dark realms of misery and despair. It contains disturbing scenes of sexual violence, cruelty and torture. It also includes self-harm, pain addiction and brutalisation.

Please bear this in mind before purchasing this book. Thank you.

I lost track of my life.

Dirty Ties by Pam Godwin


Logan, Collin, and Kaci

OK, first and foremost this is by far Pam’s best book yet. I know, I know, I say that same shit every time Pam puts a book out, but believe me when I tell you this one will rock your fucking world and leave you with the biggest, sexiest, and sated smile on your damn face! I am in love with Logan, Collin, and Kaci! I want to wrap myself in leather, hop on a Ducati, and ride the wind all the way to Chi-town!

Let me start with Collin! He’s one of those guys that every girls needs but doesn’t know what to do with once they get him! He harbors deep secrets, endless emotions, and the best damn wardrobe to even make Prada designers jealous! Beware of Collin Anderson! He’ll melt your heart and still make you second guess his motives. I soooo wish “The Anderson Angle” was a real show, I’d watch it just catch a glimpse of that beautiful man! It seems at times he’s clueless, but I honestly think he wants you to think that. Watch out for the quiet ones!

Logan, my beautifully fucked up Login! A man whose head and heart think & beat with the thick stench of vengeance.   He’s ruled by his passion for revenge and an obsession for retribution. His need to bring down the people who victimized him and took the only thing away that he knew is so immense that it’s consuming his every breath.   Beneath that black leather and that high tech helmet is just a man. A man with the most beautiful greenish-goldish eyes, the sexiest tousled dirty blonde hair, and a mouth made for licking the most delicate piercing.   He’s full of so many emotions that are up and down the spectrum that he nearly killed me with his deceitfulness and betrayal! Just when you think you know him or just when you think you know what he’ll do next you’re so far thrown off the path that you’ll be screaming out Pam’s name in vain! Logan Flynt is mine and I don’t share well with others!


I raced to finance it.

I evaded to protect it.

I killed to attain it.” 

“It’s a crazy need inside me, driving me to be near you, to watch over you, to undo the hurt I put in your eyes. I don’t fucking know what it is but I feel it now, spinning me around – around you-and knocking me way the fuck off track.” 

Now onto that hot little number Pam calls Kaci. I love this bitch with everything I am and everything I have. She is the epitome of goodness… of sex appeal… and everything in between. She has more than most of us could ever dream of having, but at what cost? Oh nothing much… just her soul. Longing for so much more than money can buy, she’s trapped and the walls keep closing in.   What she needs is something so basic, yet so necessary to the human spirit that she’ll go to great lengths to get it. She’s calm and calculating.   She’s comical and smart. She’s not afraid to go after what she wants but if it cost her the only family she’s ever known and loved then she’ll have to either give up or find another way. My heart broke so many times for this beautiful soul and wept with more angst than my body was prepared to handle. I have to hand it to her though, she can run with the big fish and still keep her chin up!

“Now there’s something you don’t see every day. A carnivorous, cold-blooded reptile holding a snake.” 

“The strongest love begins from a place of conflict. It’s a volatile journey of committing and fighting and recommitting, but the effort is resolute and evolves into something so consuming the heart aches just thinking about it.” 

Onto our great supporting character cast… Benny… oh that damn girl is soooo fucking hilarious.   She needs her own book! She’s quirky, humorous, and just doesn’t give a shit who she pisses off or what trouble she might get into for her crazy antics. I love that her “book” doesn’t match her “cover”! Now, those parents… Trent especially can kiss my ass.   How can parents be so cruel? How can they put so many demands on their children, forcing them into lives they never wanted? I’ll never understand how a mother can lose that protective instinct to defend her young. How????   Pam always writes the best villains.   So good that I’m usually rooting for her villains in a secret kinda way, but not this time. She wrote the Baskels and the Andersons so wickedly that even I don’t like them. Good job hooker!!!

Oh God, to sum this up.   This story will leave you with so many sensations. It’ll pull on your heartstrings and drive you crazy! The plot is so thick with suspicion and mistrust. It will take you on the ride of your life and leave you begging for more. The dialogue flows like wind and leaves no stone unturned. The characters are so powerful and so beautifully written that you’ll find yourself wanting to be them, to feel what they feel. The tension and suspense created by the tremulous storyline will have you gutted. The book itself is 299 (Kindle version) pages long and with that, Pam knocked it outta the park. Pam, you are my hero and I will love you and your books till my dying day!

5 Stars because 10 is not an option!!! Whoa… this book is so damn good!!!!


He knelt over my attacker, his strength visible in the stretch of the jacket over his back and shoulders. His helmet cocked, angled in my direction. “I had this.”
Oh my God, his voice. Okay, it was definitely synthesized, his timbre humming with an electronic overlay, but it was deep and gravelly and so goddamned sexy.
Pull yourself together, Kaci. He was far more dangerous than the man who just attacked me.
“Get out of here.” I nodded to the street behind me, and as if on cue, another squad car zoomed by. “I’ll hold him until you’re gone.”
What was I saying? I didn’t want him to leave.
I thought I heard a chuckle, but couldn’t be sure with the whine of sirens and exhaust pipes. He looked back at my attacker, swung an arm, and knocked him out. Damn. Okay, that worked too.
I lowered the gun. “You won the race?”
“Of course.” He rose and erased the distance between us in three strides.
My nerves shivered, overloaded and amped up, and oh God, he was just standing there, heating the air around me, staring at me. What did he want? I opened my mouth to spew a gushing thank you.
He snatched the gun from my hand.
What the? “Give that ba—”
He lifted my chin and stroked a gloved finger over the nicks on my throat. Each caress irritated the cuts, but I didn’t want him to stop. He raised the finger in front of my visor, blood soaking the leather tip. “Have you learned your lesson?”
His voice reverberated through me, and my knees weakened. Even with the electronic distortion, he sounded pissed.
My heart panted, and a throb swelled, hot and needy, between my legs. All because of a pissed-off synthesized voice? I might’ve just swallowed my self-respect, but I couldn’t help it. My body had one mission, and that mission vibrated against me like he wanted to tear me in half. Damn me to hell, but my inner muscles clenched at the thought.
I touched my throat and flinched at the bite of pain. “It’s just a scratch.”
The reflection of my helmet in his visor wavered as he shook his head. He gazed down on me as if he were…considering something? God, I wished I could see his face, his eyes.
His finger returned to my throat, trailed a path beneath my chin, lifting it and catching on the edge of the helmet. He tugged it, like he wanted to rip off the shield and see my eyes, too. “Get on your bike, sweetheart.”
He flicked the safety on the gun and gripped my shoulders, turning my body to face the bike. Both bikes. His and mine side-by-side. Oh, how I loved the sight of that.
His fingers touched my hip, slipping beneath my jacket to stroke my bare skin. I trembled against the brush of his glove, until he opened his mouth. “This is your last race.”
The temperature in my helmet rose by ten degrees, and my cheeks inflamed. I glared at him over my shoulder. “Excuse me?”
Smack. A stinging jolt of fire rippled over my ass, and I shuffled forward. He fucking hit me! I placed my hands on the bike’s seat, and unbidden, a grin took hold of my face. He fucking spanked me.
