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.

They’re banging headboards.

MY REVIEW

Cocky Playboy by Alex Wolf & Sloane Howell
Tate & Decker
COCKY INDEED
5 StarsSo this is my first book by this dynamic duo and it won’t be the last! I found this book exhilarating and entertaining. Sexy, yet serious. It pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you held within its clutches for the duration.Tate is my kinda woman! She’s smart and has a head for business and a body for sin. She knows what she wants and how to get it. Just one problem, will her heart win or her head?

Decker is all kinds of sex appeal. His approach to business is not as conventional as you would think. He seems pretty cool to work for, but his personal life is another story.

The supporting character cast is medium sized. Mmmm, let’s see there’s Decker’s brothers and I’m sure I’ll get one of the names wrong here… but here it goes… Dexter, Deacon, and I think Donavan. These guys are, well… comical, and a bit stern. Something is going on here I suspect it may lead to more books!! Yeay!! One character that I found gritty and somewhat of an asshole was Weston. Weston is Tate’s boss and from what I could gather he’s sort of a prick, but that’s one girl’s opinion. Last but definitely not least is Quinn, the “assistant.” Not much dialogue for her, but I feel like we’ll be seeing more of her.

So to wrap this up, I found the storyline very compelling and real. The characters are powerful and demanded my attention. The dialogue flowed and felt very natural and the tension leading the climax did the book justice. Nicely done boys!

Review: Hated You Then by M. Robsinson

HATED YOU THEN
Love Hurts, Book 1
By M. Robinson
Release Day: September 17 

From Wall Street Journal & USA Bestselling Author M. Robinson comes Hated You Then, book 1 in the Love Hurts Duet. 

A coming of age, enemies to lovers, contemporary romance filled with angst and all the feels. 

 

I couldn’t remember a time before her… Harley Jameson.

Before she owned me.
Hated Me.
Needed me.

Before I hated her…

Things were simple.
We had an understanding.
Bully. Fight. Hate. It’s what we did.
Mind. Body. Soul. It’s how we loved.

I thought nothing would ever change that, until everything did.

She was mine.

Always had been.
Always would be.
Nothing altered that.
Not how much I hated her.
Not how much she hated me.
Especially, not how much I hated…

That I LOVED her.

MY REVIEW

Hated You Then by M. Robinson
Jackson & Harley
I AM IN LOVE WITH THESE PUNKS!
5 Stars

I knew this book would be hot, but holy hell is it funny as fuck. The banter, the ball kneeing, I can’t get enough!

Harley is so freaking cute it’s killing me. She’s funny, she’s tough, and she’ll knee you in the balls if you cross her. I love how innocent and real she is.

Jackson is for lack of better word, a prick! He’s dealing with some pretty heavy shit and you’d know this if you already read the Pierced Hearts duet… buuuutttt, well, he it! I know he secretly loves Harley, but jeeze he’s such a jerk to her it almost breaks my heart!

The supporting character cast isn’t too big. Parents from previous books, a few friends of Harley and Jackson, but one that sticks out and I believe will become a bigger part of the puzzle soon is Cash. He doesn’t have much dialogue at this point, but I feel him coming out soon!

Great story! Powerful characters! Excellent tension leading to the cliffy I knew was coming… I can’t wait for the next book to come out!

#Review #NewRelease – Manipulate by Pam Godwin

Tula Gomez is in the most ruthless prison in Latin 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.

Genre → Dark Romance (anti-heroes, human sex trafficking, cartel)

Series → Each book is a different couple. No cliffhangers. Must be read in order.

MY REVIEW

Manipulate by Pam Godwin
Tula, Ricky, and Martin
I’VE BEEN TO HELL AND BACK
5 Stars

Holy freakin’ Moly!!! This was crazy hot! I’ve only read a handful of books like this, well not actually like this.. what I mean is like two dudes and a girl. I experienced just about every emotion a person can. It pulled on me, making me want more, and leaving me sated.

Tula is definitely one of the toughest female characters I’ve ever read. My God, the shit this woman went through and survived. Her heart is strong and huge.. she’s my hero in every way.

Ricky and Martin… bwahaha, funny “Ricky Martin” are such complex characters. They seemed to be polar opposites even though their past would dictate otherwise. I just love how Pam writes broken characters. She makes you feel like these characters are YOUR friends and you empathize for them like your caring actually matters and/or helps them. I just love these guys!

The supporting character cast was not very big.. just a few villains. Knowing Pam and how she writes the bad guy, I was shocked and some what satisfied with these characters and they’re turn of events.

Every time Pam sits down to write a book I wait patiently anticipating dark shockingly beautiful Stories. She never disappoints. She pours her heart and soul into every page, of every book, of every series. And they just keep getting better and better and better!!

It didn’t take me very long to read this book, probably because I couldn’t put it down! The pacing is perfect, the storyline is divine, and the writing style is impeccable as always. Loved it!!!

DELIVER SERIES

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

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!
