MY REVIEW OF Beneath the Burn by Pam Godwin 


Beneath The Burn by Pam Godwin
Jay & Charlee

Well, I most certainly should wait to write this as I just finished it last night, but I just can’t fucking wait to gossip about this book. I’ll be talking about this book till the day I go to meet my maker! This is the second book I’ve read by Pam Godwin and it most certainly will NOT be the last. I’m a Pam groupie! I’d follow that bitch to ends of the earth just to get more books from her and maybe have a beer with her!! LOL! Can’t get enough of her writing. Ok, enough about my Pam Godwin obsession… onto the review…

My assessment of Beneath The Burn is going to be tough to put into words but I’ll give it my best effort to convey it to you in the simplest terms. This tale of anguish, sorrow, and bonds is so heart wrenching, so dark, so dank that my heart almost burst. Forget about what you think you know here or what you may assume this is about. It will take you to places you thought you’d never go and love it. Amidst kidnapping, rape, drug use, violence, and suspense you’ll (oddly enough) experience love, acceptance, protection, and believe it or not, humor. This is NOT… I REPEAT NOT for the faint of heart, all you peeps out there that love a composed and predictable romance, well, dig your heels in for this one, you’re going to need it. I honestly feel like I need to read one of those foo foo books just to cleanse my pallet before I move onto another story like this one! That’s a good thing by the way! Don’t misunderstand me, this story also has its share of humor and will having you laughing out loud at many points, but I think the hilarity is put there to help ease you into the mayhem and back out again.

I usually begin talking about the male lead in my reviews, but there’s just too much to say about our beautiful, courageous, intelligent, and talented Charlee (with two E’s!). What a breathtaking character. She is the strongest female character I’ve ever read and I have a feeling she mirrors (on some levels) one of my favorite authors (wink wink)! Personally I would have splintered from just a fraction of the shit she went through. In fact, I broke a bit just reading about all the turmoil and anguish she put up with for 9 goddamn years. She always seemed to have such an inspiring attitude and dished out amazing advise while her own heart was quiet. The kind of girl that gives without ever taking. Still laughing out loud at the “Charlee Constitution!”

Now Jay Maynard, oh boy. A man I love to hate! For starters, how can you not love a rock star for Godsakes? His external shell is hardened by years of abuse followed by more years of suppression. His insides however are a different story brought out by the trust and love an amazing woman. A quote from the book pretty much sums it up for me. “Love is like a series of improbable, lonely notes landing together in meaningful chaos. Where every channel carries a rhythm that conveys an expression of emotion. It doesn’t feel flat or fake or hallow. It’s not exaggerated with overtones. The complexity might feel organized, but the creation is never controlled.” Jay was, is, and always will hold an enormous place in my heart. I wouldn’t mind trying “The Strong Box” position with him!

Great supporting characters in Nathan, Tony, all the band members, and even that nasty, son of a bitch Roy. Without that POS this story wouldn’t have the best villain ever written. I almost felt a tiny bit of compassion for the dick towards the end, but to no avail… he showed his true nature and I was back to wanting to cut his nuts off. I cherished the brother/sister connection Charlee and Nathan had formed. He could have left her to fend for herself, but he gave up his life and time to stand by her side and shield her at all costs. The band members, Laz, Wil, and Rio are some of the best in the business. From thongs to video games, these guys will have you laughing your asses off.

The writing style, well, it’s Pam Godwin and there is no other like her and her writing. It’s detailed, yet it flows. It’s angsty, yet she manages to plug in plenty of softness. And it’s suspenseful and scary at times yet she peppers in some humor and makes it one of the best books ever written. I’m glad I finally got the opportunity to read it and will be bragging about it for the next ten years, maybe more!!

The pacing was good and the highs and lows kept my heart in check, most of the time! It’s 484 (Kindle version) pages long and every, I mean EVERY damn page warped and corrupted my heart until there was nothing left but the shell it came in. Can’t say much without giving anything away, but I will say this… at 94% I had to set my kindle down before I threw it and text my friend Kat through tear filled eyes to tell her I was bawling my eyes out. She had finished it already and was waiting for me so that we could discuss it. Needless to say, she told me she’s been there also and to keep reading and text her when I was done! I’M DONE KAT, I’M DONE AND I LOVED IT!!!!

10 Stars all the damn way!!!!

MY REVIEW OF Captive in the Dark by CJ Roberts


Captive In The Dark (The Dark Duet #1) by C.J. Roberts
Caleb & Livvie “Kitten”

Ok, first off… repeat after me… “I am a dirty whore!” No shit… just say it now cause once you’ve ended this book, you’ll be thinking it!! I will never be the same again! I am dirty. I am a filthy whore. I left a piece of me on the pages of this book and this book left a piece of itself on me! I loved it, I hated it, I wanted to be it, and most of all I will treasure this story for the rest of my existence.

I read Captive in the Dark on the recommendation from another dirty whore, Chelle Bliss. She actually bought me this book a year ago and I kept pushing it further and further down my TBR list. Now I know why! Chelle knew too that once I ingested the words that make up this tantalizing tale that I’d be forever scarred and my heart would never be the same and if it’s all the same to you, I’d like to keep it that way!!

I’ll start with Caleb. Holy freaking hell, this guy is one of a kind. He’s alpha, he’s sexy, he’s as fucked up as they come, and he’s so dark and mysterious that you’ll never, and I mean never know what he’s thinking. He IS the “monster that no one thought to look for in the light of day!” Even after the unimaginable and unspeakable things he does to Livvie, I still crave him in the worst way. Have faith that he’ll turn your world upside down and inside out, he did mine! When he says, “Kitten, don’t let me find you!” a chill ran down my spine. A chill of fear, of excitement, or maybe a chill of the unknown and what would happen if he did find her! Yikes, the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up right now (*looks over shoulder).

Livvie, or should I say Kitten, well, she kind of drove me bat shit crazy. She cries all the damn time. I don’t know what I would do in such a situation, but I sincerely don’t think I’d cry so much. She’s stronger than she thinks and pulls that strength out of her ass at times. She’s not the battered dog she portrays herself to be. She’s more like a young woman who goes from one appalling circumstance to a poorer one depending on how you look at it. I personally think the entire event changes her for the better! She seemed to do a lot of growing up in four months, God knows she had to, but sheesh, the crying almost did me in!

Just so you all know, when you finish this book, you’ll be agitated, salivating, feeling pissed off, exhilarated, and above all dirty! This is a cliffhanger so have the next installment, Seduced in the Dark ready to go. This book was effortless to read and I finished it in two days. It was so captivating and compelling that I could NOT put it down. The dialogue flows and feels very natural. The pacing is perfect and the tension leading to the climax was invigorating to say the least. It’s 224 (Kindle version) pages long… and for me that equates to… not too long, not too short… just right baby… now get your asses over to whatever site you buy your books from and get this mofo immediately!!!

Thank you Chelle for opening my eyes to this dirty world!!!!

5 Stars because 10 is not available!!!

MY REVIEW OF The Decimation of Mae by D.H. Sidebottom



The Decimation of Mae by D, H, Sidebottom


Daniel & Mae

 I Am in awe, I’m not sure exactly how to feel about this story, I want to scream. I Want to cry, but most of all I want to tell you about the story that broke me in so many ways. I can honestly tell you that a piece of me died on the pages of this beautiful tale! From the very first word, I was hooked, this is one of those books that you won’t be able to put down no matter how hard you try. Damn you D.H.!!!

Mae, our little lamb is my hero in every way shape and form, She laughed in the face of the devil and taunted him with her defiance.   From the life she was dealt to the life she was force into, she never lost herself. A woman repeatedly beat, told she wasn’t worth anything, and stolen from the only life she knew. Her spirit still soared above all the evil. Mae and her dirty mouth and will to exist will live with me forever. I can only hope to be half the woman she is.

“You will never pen me in like some timid animal that is too scared to fight. I have nothing to lose. You can beat me, hurt me, control me even, but you will never ever own me.” ~Mae 

Daniel is everything I love to hate in a character. He’s offensive, condescending, evil in its purest form… yet he demands my attention and the hope that one day he would change and find his peace! I’ve never read a character that demanded so much passion from me. I hated him, I loved him. I wanted to be the lamb to his Shepard, I don’t even Care if the path he lead me on is to my demise,.. my slaughter! I’d go!

“I am the sort of man who will relish and your defiance, Mae. Believe me; I would love nothing more than to fight with you, to take you hard and punishingly, to bruise you and make you bleed.” ~Daniel 

Great supporting character cast. From that dirt bag, drug dealing, scumbucket Liam in the beginning to those evil, wicked handlers Demi and Frank. God, I love a good villain, even Daniel could be grouped into this category.

This book will tantalize your senses and make you feel like your entire world is collapsing around you. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it with every fiber of my being, I even laughed out loud at parts. It’s frightening, its humorous, and it’s the complete package of love and hate. The pacing is just right, the dialogue flows with expertise, and the highs and lows that brought me to that wonderful climax have branded my heart and will forever be a part of me.

5 Stars

Ok, it has to be said…. I agonized over this list!!!  There are so many Authors and books out there that I wanted to put on it… but sadly I had to chose only 10!  So… 5 cups of coffee, 6 smokes, and a half chewed bottom lip later… here it is…. ☻


Comfort Food by Kitty Thomas

comfort food

Emily Vargas has been taken captive. As part of his conditioning methods, her captor refuses to speak to her, knowing how much she craves human contact. He’s far too beautiful to be a monster. Combined with his lack of violence toward her, this has her walking a fine line at the edge of sanity.

Told in the first person from Emily’s perspective, Comfort Food explores what happens when all expectations of pleasure and pain are turned upside down, as whips become comfort and chicken soup becomes punishment.

DISCLAIMER: This is not a story about consensual BDSM. This is a story about “actual” slavery. If reading an erotic story without safewords makes you uncomfortable, this is not the book for you. This is a work of fiction, and the author does not endorse or condone any behavior done to another human being without their consent.

I never stood a chance.

A series of weather and road mishaps leaves me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger. In the back of a pickup truck. For forty-eight freakin’ hours.

A stranger who held me in his arms, calmed me, and then set a fire in me that I couldn’t put out.

Storm lives up to his name. Beautiful. Dangerously inviting. Tumultuous. Dark. A clash of hot and cold.

He’s used to getting everything he wants.

And now he wants me.

Some people chase storms for the beautiful thrill. What happens when the storm chases you?
