MY REVIEW

Aries by Gemma James
Novalee & Liam
WOW, WHAT AN OPENER
5 Stars

I can’t believe it!!! I can’t believe that Gemma James captured my wicked heart once again. This story is quick but mighty! It will leave you with so many emotions that you (well me) won’t know what to do with all of it!

Novalee is a queen… the Zodiac Queen and she’s being forced to marry, but she must only pick from the twelve suitors that are slated for her hand in marriage. She must spend 30 days (one month) with each one before they actually auction her off to one of them. Wow… just wow!! Who comes up with this shit? Gemma James, that’s who. Novalee is only 18 years old, but man oh man she’s something else. She has her innocence, but yet she’s snarky as all get out. She makes you laugh and weep for her. I can’t wait to see how she behaves with the other 11 brothers of the Zodiac.

Liam is her first suitor and wowza, this guy can spank me all day long. He’s firm yet kind and he knows what needs to be done to prepare Novalee for the next eleven months. Make no mistake, he wants her for his own, but he only gets a month with her so time is of the essence when it comes to training and showing his affection for her.

I am hooked and can’t wait to read the rest of these month long “get to know ya” encounters. Next up is Heath and holy hell, this guy is scary. I’m a little worried for Novalee on this one and I think Liam is too. Bring on the brut!!!

Blurb:
Twelve men. A virgin queen. One arranged marriage.

The first time I met the boys of the Zodiac Brotherhood, I was forced to my knees for the introduction. Still grieving the death of my parents, I was a child queen, a pawn in my uncle’s agenda for wealth and gain. As my guardian, he had the authority to arrange a marriage upon my eighteenth birthday.

That meeting took place six years ago.
Now those boys are powerful men.
Twelve virile men that want to own me.

And I must spend a month with each one.
Bending and yielding to their desires and commands.
Shedding pieces of my innocence so long as my virtue remains intact.

Because they want a virgin queen after the last month concludes, and my uncle plans to auction me off to the highest bidder.

Out of the twelve men, only one has my heart.
And only one can claim my hand in marriage.
If only it were up to me to decide.

Cover Reveal: MANIPULATE by Pam Godwin

MANIPULATE is book 6 in the DELIVER Series
Dark Romance – Anti-heroes – Sex Trafficking – Cartel

Release Date: Jun 25, 2019

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads

Tula Gomez is in the most ruthless prison in South America.

She only drove to Mexico to help her sister. She did nothing wrong.
But her quiet life changed in an instant.

To survive the violent, cartel-controlled prison where men blend with women, she pledges her loyalty to the notorious leader in exchange for the one thing she needs most.
Protection.

When she agrees to seduce the suspicious new inmates, Martin Lockwood and Ricky Saldivar, she doesn’t expect to enjoy it. Sure, they’re gorgeous, irresistibly alpha, and insanely talented with their hands and mouths. But they’re the enemy. She can’t fall for them.

Torn between her cartel loyalties and two men who want her as deeply as they want each other, she questions who is manipulating whom. Her search for answers leads to a passionate ménage, a soul-crushing secret, and an impossible choice.

•DEVASTATE #4
•TAKE #5
MANIPULATE #6


DELIVER, Book 1: FREE on all retailers

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it’s whatever she wants it to be.

She is a Deliverer.

She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the sexual training that determines their purchase price.

As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold.

Delivering is all she knows.

The one thing she can’t deliver is a captive from slavery.

Until him.

And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her…from herself.


VANQUISH, Book 2

Her life is like a prison cell.
A self-made, to-hell-with-the-free-world existence that locks from the inside.
Stop judging. Her agoraphobia doesn’t define her. It simply keeps her safe.

He belongs in a prison cell.
The 6×8, make-me-your-bitch variety that locks from the outside.
But he’s free. To hunt. To take. To break.
And he just found a sexy new toy.

Capturing her is the easy part. Her fucked-up mind, however, makes him question everything he does next.
But he’s a determined bastard. If all goes his way, this will hurt like hell.


DISCLAIM, Book 3

Camila was seventeen when Van Quiso kidnapped her. Ten years after her escape, the shackles refuse to release her. Not while there are still slave traders preying on her city.
She will stop at nothing to end them.
Even if that means becoming a slave again.

Returning to chains is her worst fear—and only option. They won’t know who she is or what she intends to do. She’s prepared for every complication.
Except him.
The one who decimated her sixteen-year-old heart.

Matias is charming, gorgeous, and dangerously seductive. He’s also untrustworthy and enshrouded in secrets. After years of no contact, he finds her—on her knees, wrists bound, in the clutches of her enemy.
Will he sabotage her mission by needlessly saving her?
Or will he keep her in chains and never let her go?


DEVASTATE, Book 4

“What is the price you’re willing to pay?”
“Money isn’t an issue.”
“I’m not talking about money.”

Tate is on the hunt to find his best friend’s sister.
Eleven years ago, Lucia Dias was abducted. Presumed dead. He never met her, so why does he care?
Some might call his efforts noble, but his motivation is more perverse, bordering on obsession.

When he follows a chilling lead to Venezuela’s Kidnap Alley, what he finds is neither a corpse nor a captive.

Amid poisonous lies and crippling depravity, the price of love is devastation.
And he pays.
With his body, his blood, and her life.


TAKE, Book 5

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

Sorry to say peeps.. I’m still reading this… buuuutttt…. rest assured, there’s plenty of plot twist, sexy times, and suspense to keep you enthralled for days!!!  I’m loving it!!!

 

She
couldn’t take it anymore and started pushing me to get free from my grasp.
“Stop! I hate you, Damien! Do you hear me? I fucking hate you!” she yelled over
and over again, aching to make herself and me believe it. 
My heart
broke.
My fingers
twitched.
And tears
threatened to surface.
However, I
wouldn’t let up and just kept caressing her, kissing her, whispering that I
loved her. Battling her hateful words with my loving ones. I could feel she was
reaching her breaking point, as much as she could. Her wrist suddenly slipped
through my grip and she shoved me with so much force that she was able to slap
me across the face. Going full speed to do it again, but I intervened by
grabbing her forearm, pinning her to the blanket. Locking down her petite frame
with my flawed heart and beaten body.
She laid
there beneath me, panting profusely, emotionally and physically consumed with
tears cascading down the sides of her face. For a moment, I allowed her to take
my breath away. In my eyes, she’d never looked so fucking beautiful.
So goddamn
breathtaking.
So fucking
mine…

I leaned

forward and kissed away all her tears, tasting her nightmares, her memories,
her love and hatred for me. Tenderly kissing my way to her lips while her body
continued to shudder from my intense, overpowering love. Overwhelming her
emotions and overriding her thoughts the way only I could ever do. Before
another second slipped by, I kissed her for all the years I didn’t, for all the
times I couldn’t, for all the moments I so desperately wanted to. Losing myself
in her. Almost like I was trying to kiss the agony and pain I caused right out
of her. Wanting to hold her tormented burdens, inflicted solely by my mistakes
and regrets.

MY REVIEW

Guilty Sin by Chelle Bliss
Ret, Alese, and Nya
DIFFERENT IS GOOD!!!
5 Stars

So this isn’t your standard “Chelle Bliss” book… oh no, it’s so much more! Chelle puts her heart and soul on these pages and leaves you with a mouthwatering tale that will keep you wanting more.

Ret and Alese were introduced to us in Top Bottom Switch(highly recommend you read this NOW). I’ve loved them from the beginning and I think I may have fallen even deeper in love with them after this. Alese is so carefree and lighthearted. Don’t get me wrong, she’ll cut your heart out with a spoon if you harm anyone she loves, but her persona is one of independence, exploration, and acceptance. Ret on the other hand is the opposed. He approaches with caution and when Nya enters the mix, he follows Alese’s lead. Good man!

Nya is all kinds of fucked up and how can she not be… she’s been mistreated, neglected, and discarded like a used condom. When she finally gets to Ret and Alese’s house, she’s stand-offish and untrusting, but pour on that Ret charm and the Alese welcoming committee and you just may have a good fit!

This book was so far my favorite in the Alfa series. Not because it’s new, but because it’s uncommon. It opens up your mind to fresh possibilities and different situations. The characters were powerful, the dialogue flows, and the pacing is perfect. Loved it!

The men at ALFA Investigations are tough as nails, all about the chase, and love playing dirty. From ruthless criminals to wild women, they’ll stop at nothing to fight the bad guys and win the girl.

Review: Knotted by Pam Godwin

KNOTTED, Book #1 in the TRAILS OF SIN series

Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance
Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.

Amazon | Other Retailers | Goodreads

I try to forget her.
It’s impossible.

Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.

We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.

Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.

I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
She’s mine.

MY REVIEW

Knotted by Pam Godwin
Jake & Conor
I THINK I DIED A LITTLE ON THESE PAGES
5 Stars!

What a ride! I mean, holy hell in a hand basket… this one was unforgiving and exhilarating. Really folks, from the first chapter…THE FIRST CHAPTER I was shocked, hooked , and gearing up for 110% full on angst. I got it!

I wanted this book to go in so many directions, sometimes it did, other times it went the complete opposite and truly, I was ok with that. Julep Ranch is a place that feels like home even to me, the reader! Pam does a brilliant job (as usual) of unfolding the setting, the landscape, and the feel of emotions involved.

Conor Cassidy is a free spirited young woman who stares despair in the face and pushes past its clutches only to be thrust into another conundrum. She’s remarkable and strong, She’s honest and unique, and she’ll steal your heart, break it and put it back together again.

Jake Holsten is all in where Conor is concerned. He’s loved her his whole life and no one or thing will ultimately come between them, or so I thought. He’s honest to a fault, but has to bite his tongue to keep his girl safe.

There aren’t too many supporting characters or at least not ones I care to mention. There is of course Jarret (Jakes twin) and Lorne, Conor’s brother. These two cowboys are going to rock the pages of book 2 and book 3 and holy moly guacamole people, those books are going to be scorching.

I loved this story with my entire soul. It was captivating right away and the characters are genuine and likable and drew me in instantaneously. The dialogue flows easily and sounds natural. The storyline is irreplaceable and the pacing flawless. The tension is immediate and leads you to a path of destruction, refurbishing, love, and acceptance. What a breathtaking tale!
