Review: Torn by Melody Anne

39785302

I understand how adultery happens. I know, your first thought is “Of course you can — you’re a cheater.” That’s true, but that’s certainly not the whole story.
That’s always what a cheater says, right? Once again, you are correct. If you’re looking for a typical romance, then run — run far.
After ten years of marriage I realized my husband barely touched me anymore. There was the obligational monthly sex, but even that was starting to fizzle. I was twenty-nine and he was thirty-two. We should’ve been doing it like bunnies, night and day, or at least a couple times a week, to be more realistic. But that hadn’t happened in years.
It didn’t hit me until I’d been gone a couple of weeks. Then when I got home we both fell asleep that night, me snuggled up against his back like we always slept. But that’s all we did. We just … slept.
No big deal you say?
Wrong. It was a very big deal.
It was the night I realized we had a real problem.
I have a choice to make, but I’m so torn. Do I stay where I’m at or do I go with Kaden, with the man who’s showing me I still have a lot to live for …

MY REVIEW

Torn by Melody Anne
Mason, Miranda, & Kaden
ALL THE FEELS & EMOTIONS
5 Stars

I’m a huge Melody Anne fan and I’ve followed her for quite some time now. I lost my Dad around the same time she lost hers and I can totally relate to “Daddy’s girl” complex and how hard it is to comprehend that he’s not there for me to call on. This story is such an emotional rollercoaster and the feels it brought to me are immense. The relationships that form and fall apart are just about enough to push anyone over the edge. I commend her for putting herself out there like this and her heart down on these pages. I guarantee you will fall in love with each and every one of these characters!

Miranda is a complex character, but not unlike most of us and our daily struggles. I found myself relating to her in more ways than one. She loves her husband, but she’s not in love with him. They started as friends and somehow I think that’s where they should have stayed, but no one can tell you differently when you think you’re in love. The trials and tribulation Miranda faces throughout the first installment of this serial are bold and heart-wrenching. I can’t wait to see where this goes and how her life is going to change!

Mason is hard to figure out. He doesn’t have a lot of dialogue and the storyline doesn’t let you in on too many things going on with him, but I feel confident we’ll know more soon!

Same goes for Kaden. We know his position in Miranda’s life, we know he’s hot as heck, but what we don’t know is his past. Why is he the way he is? What does he want from Miranda? How far is he willing to go to get what he wants? And what is it he wants? Hells bells Melody, you’re killing me here!

The supporting character cast is small and I feel like only mentioning two of them. Audrey is Miranda’s good friend and a heck of a girl. She’s Miranda’s sounding board and voice of reason. She doesn’t judge or frown upon Miranda’s actions, she embellish on them, making what has happened seem not so bad and justified! The other person is Miranda’s Dad. This guy is the best!! The best Dad, the best friend, the best everything! He’s always there for her and also does not judge her. He simply stands by her and supports her decisions without hesitation. Reading his parts made me miss my Dad so much as I could feel my heart breaking feeling my own Dad on these pages and in these words and I’m sure Melody was typing through tears while she wrote about him.

This story is fantastic! I have fallen in love with this storyline and these outstanding characters. Characters that are so powerful, I found myself closely relating to each and every one of them on some level. The dialogue flows and the pacing is perfect. This is a sort of cliffy, but doesn’t leave you completely hanging. Stay tuned for more Mason, Miranda, and Kaden!

MY REVIEW

El Pecador by M. Robinson
Damien & Amira
GASPS!
5 Stars

Well, well, well… an action packed continuation of Damien’s story… I was warned, but I couldn’t help myself. I needed to find out where he went, what he was doing, and why he left our girl!

Damien is now in a position of power, prestige, and influence. He’s not as spotless as he may seem to some, but his heart is still as pure when it comes to a certain girl. I have to admit I wasn’t so sure about his intentions at first, but the objective sucked me in and, well, here I am.

Amira… holy shit.. Amira is all grown up and in charge! I love this chick! She makes being ruthless look so good. Some of her motives are questionable, but you’ll understand eventually.

The plot twists in this book alone are enough to push even the seasoned reader over the edge. I found it to be a complete page turner and I couldn’t read fast enough. The pacing is fast, the dialogue flows, and the storyline is phenomenal. The characters are powerful and I found myself hanging on every word. Now to bide my time waiting for the spin-off Lost Boy

MY REVIEW

Fidelity by Aleatha Romig
Nox and Charli
CHILLING, GRIPPING, AND MOST OF ALL SATISFYING
5 STARS

So, this is the last book in this crazy serial by Aleatha Romig. It promises to knock your socks off and then some. Going into this one, I wasn’t sure how the outcome would be, I mean, I know what I wanted it to be, but things don’t always go the way you want them to, right? I wanted happiness for some and I harbored bitter hatred for others…

The characters in this story have had my heart from the very beginning. Nox has to be my all time fave and Charli a close second. She drove me completely bonkers for a while there, but eventually pulls her head outta her ass so she could see the evilness around her and finally do something about it.

This serial has been compelling, captivating, and enjoyable. The characters (lead and supporting) were powerful, the storyline jam packed with tension and turmoil. I guess you could say it chewed me up, spit me out, and eventually let me down gently! I loved it!

Review: Ends Here (Road to Nowhere #2) by M. Robinson

 

Ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.
And all that fucking shit.
I had killed.
I had sacrificed.
The innocent and the corrupt. I knew blood and I knew violence.
Never imagining I could know love too.
Mia Ryder was a woman to love. To cherish. To fucking claim. Now, forever, and
every day in between.
If there was anyone I’d go to Hell and back for, it was her.
Even if it meant, going to war with…
My fucking brother.

 

MY REVIEW

Ends Here by M. Robinson
Creed & Mia & Noah
HOLY HELL, THIS ROCKED!!
5 STARS

So, this is the wrap up of Creed and Mia’s crazy love story and holy freakin’ hell, what a book! Of course it’s an M. Robinson book, so it’s gonna take you a while to get through it, but oh so worth it. I was thoroughly satisfied with the conclusion.

Creed is all kinds of fucked up, but we already knew that… what you need to know is that you’ll be chewed up and spit out over all the feels and emotions he projects. I will always be a Creed fan, but man oh man, this guy drove me to drink on more than one occasion.

Mia is still a bratty little girl in my opinion, but slowly growing up throughout the pages. She’s all over the spectrum for me and sometimes it made me want to break her face, but I guess I get it, don’t like it, but get it!

The supporting character cast is fantastic, but sometimes terrifying. Noah was pretty hunky and broody but also at times made me question his loyalty. There are characters in this story that will make you cringe and ones that’ll make you swoon! And some both at the same time! LOL!

So, this one was unpredictable and surprising. It took turns I never thought it would, and had me yelling at my Kindle. The characters are commanding and the storyline gripping. Loaded with tons of tension and an excellent pacing, this one was perfect.

Review: Pennies (Dollar #1) by Pepper Winters

“I’m not the hero in this story, girl. You’d do best to remember that.”

Once upon a time, I was an eighteen year old psychology student.
Now, I’m a man’s property.
Stolen and sold, I’ve been decorated in bruises since the day my world changed two years ago.
I suffer in silence, I crave freedom, but I never break.
I can’t.
Until he arrives.
Elder Prest, the only man to look at me and see me. The only man more ruthless than my owner.
He wants me for reasons I don’t understand.
He claims me for one night then leaves and never looks back.
Until he returns.
And life becomes much more complicated.

MY REVIEW

Pennies by Pepper Winters
Pimlico, Elder, and Master A
HOLY. FUCKING. HELL.
5 DARK FUCKING STARS

I just released the breath I’ve been holding since I opened this book…. This is my introduction into the fucked up world of Pepper Winters. Yep, this is how I popped my Pepper cherry and I’m telling you… I’m reeling from this… I could not (for the life of me) put this dark and dank book down!

Pimlico (Tasmin) is such a resilient young woman. I don’t think I’d have half the courage she had for so long. Think of the unimaginable as far as what you think you can endure and then triple it! This woman defies the odds and keeps her chin up. Well, when Master A would allow it! Broken bones and bruises where the norm on the outside, but her spirit and tenacity kept her from sinking into the abyss. I love her in every way, shape, and form.

Master A is a complete and utter fuckstick! He’s the epitome of evil. He hurts without regard, he takes without concern, and he walks around like it’s all ok to be such a dick. I can’t even begin to describe the evil that he is. The devil could learn a few tricks from this prick! He can take his white house, white clothes, and white life and shove it up his Lillie white ass!

Elder… oh God, Elder… I think I love him. He’s dark, mysterious, and all alpha. He makes me want to see the good in people. He’s done things he’s not proud of and I’m sure he’ll do more, but where Pim is concerned, his heart is slowly breaking through its rigid shell. I’m not sure where his intentions will bring him and Pim at the moment, but I’m hopeful it’ll be a place of respect, adoration, and hope.

This story is uber dark… you need to heed the authors warning at the beginning of the book… It has many triggers and will probably go down as one of the top ten darkest books I’ve ever read. It’s gripping, it’s persuasive, and it’s tragic. The characters are powerful and the storyline profound. I’m not completely sure how many books are in this series, but this one is not a standalone. I’m gonna dive into the next one soon.

Pepper Winters is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today International Bestseller. She loves romance, star-crossed lovers, and the forbidden taboo. She strives to write a story that makes the reader crave what they shouldn’t, and delivers tales with complex plots and unforgettable characters.
