MY REVIEW

Choosing Us by M. Robinson
Aiden & Bailey
WOWZA… WHAT A RIDE
5 Stars

I think I may have missed some books here and there because I wasn’t aware that these connected to the good old boys but I was pleasantly surprised. This story opens with such a heart-wrenching prologue but I was almost afraid to continue reading. But read on I did and holy freaking hell this story was fantastic.

Aiden doesn’t play much of a role in the current story. We mostly see the bulk of him in his growing-up years but it does lay the ground work for the man he has become. The shrewd, rude, and disconnected shell of a man.

Bailey also only shows up in the book basically in her growing up years, but something tells me the shits about to hit the fan with her.

Normally this is where I talked about the supporting character cast but Camilla is not a supporting character, at least not to me. She plays a huge, important role in the lives of some very important children. There’s a really good story there with her and I can’t wait to find out where it goes.

So to wrap this up, the pacing is pretty good and the storyline is immense. M. Robinson really knows how to scoop your heart out with an ice pick and feed it to you. Looking forward to the next installment!

USA Today Bestselling Author of Keeping Her Wet, Road to Nowhere, EL Diablo, The
Good Ol’ Boys Standalone Series, The VIP Trilogy, Tempting Bad, and Two Sides.

Review: Take by Pam Godwin

He’s a notorious crime lord, a kidnapper, and an artist.
Scarification is his outlet, and he just captured a new canvas.
Kate refuses to surrender beneath his blade or the cruelty in his beautiful eyes.
But she’s drawn to the man inside the monster. A man who makes her ache with his touch. Who owns her with his kiss.
A man who worships her as deeply as he hurts her.
She can run, but there’s no escape from a bond carved in scars.

MY REVIEW

Take by Pam Godwin
Tiago & Kate
JAYSUS CROIST… THIS BOOK
5 Stars

Every time I pick up a Pam Godwin book I have no doubt in my mind I will love it. She never disappoints and she never has any qualms about making me fall in love with a monster. This is the fifth book in the Deliver series and for all you peeps that think as a series gets longer and older the books tend to fade, think again… this shit is real. It’s in your face, all up in your emotions, and I’m pretty sure it’ll wreck you.

We’ve known Kate for quite some time and I’m certain she’s not the quiet little church mouse I thought she was. This girl has Mad Skills when it comes to dealing with adversity and the conundrum she seems to find herself in. Stockholm syndrome my ass!!!

Tiago… Jesus Christ this guy is insanely intriguing and handsome as fuck. I can’t imagine the things that go through his mind and essentially his creators mind, God damn Pam are you as fucked up as he is?? (I’m ok with it if you are!)

The supporting character cast start out pretty small just a few people here and there to help Tiago with his quest, but then of course there’s always Van, Liv, Joshua, Tate, Lucia, and the rest of the Gang show up in one way or another!

My mind has been blown once again! Over and over Pam Godwin makes me fall in love with the dark, Twisted, and essentially unattainable anti-hero. The pacing is perfect, the setting and characters are astounding. The storyline is perfection, this entire series is phenomenal. If you have the time and don’t mind dark gritty writing, then pick up the first book in the series entitled Deliver… it’s free. What do you have to lose? Well maybe your mind!

#Release #Boost – Trashy Conquest by Gemma James

It all started 35,000 feet in the air on a flight bound for Seattle.

A chance encounter. An undeniable attraction. A forbidden passion. We tried to do the right thing and resist temptation.

We failed.

Now Cash’s wife is missing, and to make matters worse, my ex showed up on my doorstep with the promise of forever on his mind.

Things were supposed to be different.

He was going to divorce her.
He was going to be with me.
He was going to love me.

But until Cash’s wife is found, we have no future.

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Trashy Conquest is a steamy romance suitable for mature audiences only. Though the subject matter deals with cheating, there are no innocent parties here. Book 2 in the Trashy Affair series.

MY REVIEW

Trashy Conquest by Gemma James
Cash & Jules
I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE CHARACTERS
5 Stars

And the plot thickens… and twists and turns before you can even catch your breath from the last one. If I’m being honest here, I must say that this story of love, betrayal, and disturbing acts had me at hello! I could not for the life of me put this shit down.

Jules is my girl! She’s making her way in this great big world all on her own. She came across a tad bit frail in the first book, Trashy Foreplay, but I knew somewhere in that little body of hers was lion waiting to roar and roar she did.

Cash has a good heart! He knows exactly what he needs to do, but influences from the outside are making that especially difficult. Situations are looking bleak and his future not so great, but I have faith in him to come out on the other side a better man.

The supporting character cast was driving me crazy. So many back stabbers, people with their own agendas, and ones who you’d think would have your back, but only if you do what they want you to do. Ugh!

I was moved by this story, but then again it is a Gemma James story so need I say more? She gives you a love story, a complicated, fucked up, and almost impossible love story, but hell, I wouldn’t have it any other way. I absolutely loved the characters, even the bad ones! The pacing is perfect, the storyline thick with suspense and action, and the climax will rock your socks off! Loved it Gemma, thanks for sharing your crazy stories with the world!!!

#Review – The Red Ledger by Meredith Wild @wildmeredith

HE’S DEATH FOR HIRE…

Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.

She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.

MY REVIEW

The Red Ledger: Part 1 by Meredith Wild
Tristan & Isabel
CAPTIVATING & SEXY
5 Stars

Aside from Misadventures of a City Girl, this is really my first Meredith Wild book. I own a few of her books, but never got around to reading them. Then laying in bed one night, looking through my stash I came across The Red Ledger and figured I’d give it a try. Holy hell, this was bold and audacious and fairly frightening.

Tristan is a complex character. On the surface he seems cut and dry. He’s notified of his mark, takes out the mark, and he moves on. Problem is the current mark knows him and he thinks he may know her also. Throw in the fact that he has lost part of his memory and this girl could be the key to regaining what memory he lost, but does he really want that? Does he care that not killing her puts them both in danger? Auoy Vey!

Isabel is running from a past she can’t possibly forget, but none-the-less she tries. Perfectly content with how her life has progressed only to have to turned upside down and inside out when she sees the past she’s worked so hard to bury.

The supporting character cast is small and not worth too much of a mention, but I’m sure throughout the saga we’ll meet more characters.

So to wrap this up, The Red Ledger is a CLIFFY peeps… I wasn’t aware of that when I started it, but whatevah… It’s very compelling and had me enthralled instantly. The characters are intriguing and powerful. The writing style was fantastic, and the pacing is fast. It’s not too dark, but enough to make it feel angsty.
