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!

#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.

Review: Dirty Bastard by Jessica Clare

36141682

Billionaire roughneck Knox Price finds himself twisted by desire for a yoga teacher in this new romance by the New York Times bestselling author of Dirty Scoundrel.

Knox Price has always fallen short in comparison to his brothers. Boone is the ambitious one. Clay is the nice one. Gage is the handsome one. And Knox? Well, he’s the cynical one. The odd man out in the ultra-wealthy but rather unique Price family. It’s not that Knox hates people–it’s that humanity always disappoints him. When you become an oil-rich, Texan billionaire overnight, people treat you a certain way. Just once he’d like to meet someone that isn’t dazzled by his wallet.

Then, he meets struggling yoga teacher Lexi Brandon. She’s weird. She’s unpredictable and tends to say strange things. She lurks in the bushes and dresses in all black. She loves when people cross the street to get away from her. Lexi’s definitely not his type, but she’s also the first one to ever truly see him and not just another rich, dirty Price.

And that’s…fascinating. But how do you catch the interest of a woman who goes out of her way to be odd? When an unexpected surprise throws them both for a loop, Knox decides it’s time to get down and dirty, abandon the rules, and be who he truly is–a bastard.

  

MY REVIEW

Dirty Bastard by Jessica Clare
Knox & Lexi
I KEEP FALLING IN LOVE WITH THESE GUYS
5 Stars

Wow… I mean… WOW!! These Roughneck Billionaire boys just keep getting hotter and hotter. Just when you think you know them and what they’ll do, they surprise you. I don’t know whether to scratch my watch or wind my butt!

Knox is your discreet, prankster type. He’ll put ketchup in your beer and sit back and patiently wait the show. He’s wise to the gold digging women out there and prefers his life to be as uncomplicated as possible. Wait till he meets Lexi, shit’s about to get real.

Lexi (short for Meredith – lmao) is yoga instructor. A good one, but business isn’t always so “busy.” Maybe it’s her “charming” personality. She’s a recluse and prefers her solitary lifestyle. Don’t mistake me; even though she’s a hermit, her one liners and zingers are amazing… she made me laugh out loud multiple times.

The best part about this story is that it has all the elements to perfectly round it out. There’s suspense, love, sex, humor, and the writing style is flawless. The pacing is fast, the dialogue flows nicely, and the characters are entertaining. I loved it!

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.

Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the ‘naughty parts’ of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.

She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.

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
