My Review:

Rating: 5 Star ✰✰✰✰✰

Dirty Bird by H.Q. Frost and M. Piper is the second book in the Caged Series. It picks up right where Little Bird, book one in the series left off. You will want to read book one first.

If you have a weak stomach for graphic violence then this book is not for you. Lucas has built an empire for himself. Jasper is the face of that empire. Both men are obsessed with Megan Porter. That obsession has led them to kidnapping her.

Locked in a basement in Lucas’s mansion, Megan is desperate to get out and seek her revenge on the men who put her there. But she can’t help how her body reacts to one man in particular, Lucas.

Lucas has a plan. Keep Megan locked in the basement and slowly break her so that she’ll never want to leave him. But he soon learns the hard way that plans don’t always work out when two other men show up as competition. One, the man he calls brother, Jasper. The other, Ben Vig, her arranged fiancé.

What these men don’t know is that Megan has a plan of her own and no man will ever break her.

I’m not gonna lie. There were parts of this book that made my skin crawl, but I couldn’t stop reading it. 

The first book ended with such a twist that I had to know what happened in this book. I ended up reading it all in one day.

These characters in this book are not good people in any way. Yet you can’t help to love them all, with the exception of Jasper. That man is just rotten to the core. The things he does to Megan would break a lesser woman. I get shivers just thinking about it.

Megan isn’t exactly the victim either. She is a cold hearted woman with a few soft spots. I couldn’t help admiring her determination. She wasn’t going to give those men what they wanted no matter what they did to her.

What can I say, I’m a sucker for a strong female lead, even if she isn’t very likable.

This book will leave you wondering who will be the victor until the very twisted end!

My Review:

Rating: 3 Stars ✰✰✰

Grit by J.M Walker is the first book in her King’s Harlots MC Series. Worlds collide in this biker meets military romance.

I love books that have a strong female lead in them and you don’t get much more badass then a female biker club. 

Jay isn’t the type of woman to be told she can’t do something. When she was warned that an all female MC would never make it, she had to prove them wrong. Being the president of the King’s Harlots means constantly putting on a strong front and lately Jay isn’t feeling so strong. 

Then Angel walks into her life. Construction business owner by day, Seal by night. He is starting to feel that there is something missing. Then he finds Jay and everything changes. That man likes to give orders and Jay just loves to submit to him. It made for some H-O-T love scenes!

There is a string of women going missing and Jay and Angel join forces to find the missing women and Jay’s twin sister who was taken over 2 years ago.

As I said earlier, I love a strong female lead. So I was excited when I learned that this was about a female biker club. Jay and her girls kind of had a revolving door or strength and weaknesses. They didn’t posses quite the “grit” that I was expecting in tough biker chicks. Having said that though, the girls were completely relatable. Under the circumstances of the story, I could understand why they would eventually show weakness.

The writing in the story was both good and bad. What I mean by that is each individual sections was well written, but transitions between each scene were almost nonexistent which made the story not flow well in my opinion. There were also quite a few gaps in the storyline that left me with several questions.

Was the construction crew for real or was it just a front? If it was a front, what was the reason for them working on the club? Why was Tyler so worried about Jay looking into the missing women? Aside from talking about the missing women and reading news articles on them, what exactly was the club doing to find the missing women?

I may not have found the answer to most of my questions by the end of the book, but I have to say that sticking it out to the end was pretty well worth it. The action in the end of the book was intense and I was honestly surprised by who the bad guy really was. Also I know the storyline continues through the next books in the series so there is a good chance that my questions might be answered then.

Title: Charged

Author: Kerri Ann

Genre: Romance/Action/Adventure

Release Date: August 8, 2016

 

Synopsis:

Ryker – the sexiest man I have ever laid eyes on. Figures he’d be a total manwhore. But he is the man that is going to fix my car, allowing me to escape before the mob catches up with me. I just need to keep my hormones in check while he does.

I’ve never had an issue finding a woman to fill my bed. Hell, it didn’t even have to be a bed. Back alley, the seedy bathroom in a bar, the bed of a truck in broad daylight. You name it, I’ve done it. But when Kate steps out of that tow truck, I’m hooked. She rattles my nerves, causing me to lose all sense of self control.

What is she hiding though?

 

 

My Review:

Rating: ✰✰✰

Kate is on the run when her old junker of a car breaks down. Unfortunately for her she’s out in the middle of nowhere and now dependent on the seriously hot, bad boy Ryker to get it fixed so she can get out of there and disappear once again. 

There are two problems with that plan……

The first problem, getting to know the people of the town has left her not wanting to leave. The second problem, her mechanic, the man she desperately wants to go to bed with has ties with the very people she is trying to get away from.

I have to say that if you are looking for a hot bad boy book with lots of action in it, this is probably the book for you. But if you are squeamish about certain issues like assault, you may want to stay clear. There are some pretty disturbing scenes in parts of the book. 

I liked the story as a whole. The writing was good and there was a good balance between action, drama, comedy, hot scenes to keep me reading. However, the ending of the story was just a little over the top for my tastes. Had it not been for that, I would have given the book a solid 4-4.5 stars. 

Keep in mind though that that is just my taste in books and has nothing to do with the actual writing of the author in this book. In other words, read it for yourself to find out if you agree with me or not.

Title: Phaelyn

Series: The Dark Shadows 2.5

Author: Ariel Marie

Release Date: June 4, 2016

 

Phaelyn

 

Synopsis:

The Dark Shadows were charged with the responsibility of protecting the vampire nation. Going after the kidnapped vampire royal guard was all in a day’s work.

Idris Lafayette waited inside of his prison cell for the Dark Shadows to come for him. Idris knew that they would be relentless in their quest to find him. No vampire left behind.

Hope that he would be rescued, hope that the Shadows would tear through the necro’s hidden underground lair and kill them all. He yearned to get at least one last glimpse of her.

As the lone female Dark Shadow member, Phaelyn Otvos was used to being singled out. She was one of the deadliest females to ever hold a sword. Enemies underestimated her, while potential lovers were intimidated by her. Her latest assignment—retrieve the missing vampire guard. The one person who captured her heart years ago was now her mission. Thrown together in the midst of the war between vampire and necromancers, will Phaelyn and Idris recognize that they were meant for each other?

 

Phaelyn

 

Review:

Rating: 5 Stars ✰✰✰✰✰

Phaelyn is book 2.5 in The Dark Shadows series by Ariel Marie. It is a short novella that can be read as a stand alone book.

Phaelyn is the only female in the Dark Shadows. She was once a human and was turned by her friend Nadira, the vampire princess, after being attacked by a rogue vampire in the woods outside her childhood home.

Idris is one of the royal guards. He was charged with keeping Watch over Anika, Nadira’s best friend and Toma’s fated mate, but he failed and they both ended up being taken by the necromancers. He knows it’s only a matter of time before the Dark Shadows find where they are hiding him.

Phaelyn is on the team sent to free Idris. When things don’t go quite as planned, they find themselves alone in a cabin for the night. Will they finally admit to the feelings they both have for each other?

This was a nice short read! It tied up some of the loose ends from Toma and Anikas story and also gives you a look into how Phaelyn came to be the only female in the Dark Shadows. Both Phaelyn and Idris are strong alpha characters. Idris has always had feelings for her but never acted on them. It wasn’t until they were alone that they realized that it was maybe more. There are a few dark moments in this book when Zoreal, the necromancer who tortured Idris, couldn’t handle losing and decides he needs some revenge. But don’t worry, there is plenty of HOTNESS to balance things out. It is another great book to continue this series.

Title: Pavel

Series: Guardians in Love

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Author: Brianna West

 

Pavel

 

Synopsis:

*A standalone based off the main series, the Promiscus Guardians*

Eve’s entire existence and the secret power she harbors is forever changed when she meets the incredibly gorgeous Russian, Pavel Volkov, one night after he single-handedly saves her from being attacked. Claiming he’s part of an elite group of Guardians that police the Light and Dark, Pavel takes her into his protection.

The playboy warlock-faerie helps Eve unlock the secrets of her past, training the hidden power within as they attempt to keep her from the Dark that seeks to capture her.

And more importantly, will she be able to deflect the relentless advances of her so-called protector?

 

Pavel

 

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Pavel by Brianna West is the second book in the Guardians in Love series but can be read as a standalone novel.

Eve and her sister have always had special powers. Ones that seem to be stronger on their birthdays. Since their parents died when they were younger, they have no idea why they have them and no one to teach them how to use them, so they do their best to hide them.

That is until the night Eve is attacked on the streets while walking home by some strange creatures. She is saved by a man who has powers of his own.

His name is Pavel and it turns out he is her protector. The problem? He’s gorgeous and he has no problem showing it.

This book was too cute! Pavel is one of those annoying guys that has no problems letting you know how hot he knows he is and no matter how hard Eve tries to get him to back off, he refuses to go away.

The truth is, he’s kind of adorable, as are his friends. They grow on Eve and every once in a while, you see Pavel’s true feelings shine through.

Eve is learning about how special she really is and what her powers are really meant for. She is being trained by Pavel on how to use them as they spend more and more time together, she finds herself being attracted to him.

As their feelings grow though, they keep finding themselves in danger and things keep trying to keep them apart. It seems there is a dark side that wants Eve and her powers for themselves.

There is a little bit of everything in this book, humor, hotness, suspense, hotness, evil, hotness, paranormal, oh and did I say hotness. It’s all in there and very tastefully done. You can’t help but love the Characters no matter how annoying they can be at times.

Owned by Dominic teaser

 

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Owned by Dominic by KL Donn is the first book in the Possessed Series and can be read as a standalone book.

I was a little apprehensive of reading this book after I read Bullied. That book just wasn’t for me. But I thought I’d give it a try and I’m glad I did. The two books are nothing alike. This book was very well written and made complete sense. The characters were believable and identifiable. The storyline was smooth and flowed well. It was just an all around good book.

The story is about Deidre O’Connor, a young girl who grows up in a harsh environment being raised by a father who hates her and keeps her as punishment for her mother’s transgressions. She meets Dominic who was sent undercover to kill her father. He ends up being assigned as her bodyguard.

Deirdre’s father makes Dominic an offer that he cannot refuse. Her life for his.

Years later Dominic comes back to collect on the deal, but Deirdre’s father is giving in that easily.

It’s interesting to watch the relationship between Dominic and Deirdre develop from young girl and protector to lovers. The age difference is brought up, but never made a big deal. It’s based on growing, changing, and developing feelings. Dominic’s friend Case! He is a hoot and a great big comic relief to the sometimes dark feeling of the book. I have to say though that I thought the bad guys would be a bit smarter then they were. You would think running an empire would teach you a few things about evasion, but in this case, not.

There is a great mix of suspense, action, comedy, and hotness! Great Job!

One Dance for Case

 

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

One Dance for Case is book 2 in the Possessed Series by KL Donn.

This book continues the story of Dominic’s friend Case. It gives a little more background into how Case lost his leg and everything he went through during his recovery including his fall into alcoholism and how he pulled himself out of it to help Dom with his son.

When Dominics fiancé thinks her new friend is in trouble she sends the men out to the strip club where she works to make sure she is okay. When Case sees Evelyn up on the stage he can’t take his eyes off her.

Evelyn has had a rough life from the very beginning. She is working as a stripper to help support her sister and nephew. The truth is, she loves to dance. It’s an escape from her life.

Case can’t stay away from her and Evelyn can’t keep denying her attraction to him.

The question is, can he protect her and make a better life for her.

This is a great story about two damaged people who are trying to get through life and make something of themselves. They are drawn to each other and lift each other up. This isn’t a fluffy love story, but you can’t help falling in love with the characters.

You also can’t help loathing the many of the background characters who help create the dark setting for this story.

The setting is very believable and you can really feel what the characters are going through.

This is definitely worth the read.

Mercy Denied

Title: Mercy Denied: Trinity

Series: Steele Standing Book 2

Author: Jacqueline M. Sinclair

Genre: New Adult/College/Contemporary/Romance

Release Date: February 27, 2016

 

 

Synopsis:

Merrick

She and her friend set me up. Then they sent those pictures to my wife. Little did they know that she’d already left me and that I was devastated and ready to self-destruct. Because of her, I lost everything I ever wanted … the only hope I had. Now I will risk everything I have left to destroy her. It doesn’t matter why she did it, that she was hurting, or even that she was drunk. It doesn’t matter that she looks at me like she sees into my soul. Does it?

Trinity

Melanie was the one that’d sent those pictures to his wife, but it was me who’d told her to get her camera ready. I’d been angry at my ex-fiance and took it out on Merrick, wanting to expose him for the cheater I thought he was. I never dreamed it would go this far – that he would vow to destroy me. I’d take it all back if I could, but the damage is done. My mother’s life’s work is at his mercy and he’s determined to make me feel the loss that I caused him. Still, the way he looks at me I have to ask myself, did my poor choices wake the monster…or the man?

Mercy Denied

 

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Mercy Denied by Jacqueline M. Sinclair is book 2 in the Steele Standing Series but it can be read as a stand alone book.

Trinity has just ended a relationship after being cheated on. She is heartbroken and angry. Her friend Melanie drags her out to a bar and while they are there, in walks Merrick, Melanie’s friend Ella’s ex-husband. After a few drinks and some gossip about Merrick’s behavior during his marriage, Trinity decides he needs to be taught a lesson, and she’s just the person to teach it to him. She has no idea the damage she is doing or the resulting consequences of his anger when all is said and done.

Merrick is on a downward spiral after his wife and child leave him. All he wants when he walks into that bar is to numb the pain. When he meets Trinity at the bar, he feels a connection to her. Something about her makes him decide to try to make a fresh start. But he loses everything again when some incriminating pictures surface. Now he wants revenge.

Neither of them are expecting to have feelings for the other.

This book could teach you a lesson or two about making assumptions and taking it upon yourself to dish out justice. Both the characters make some pretty big ones here. They both act out of anger, even as they are falling for each other. Merrick especially can’t get out of his own head to realize that he is making even bigger mistakes and putting blame where it doesn’t necessarily belong. I got the feeling that Trinity realized her mistake and wanted to make it right. I think she also realized she had feelings for him, but then he would do something to hurt her again and she would go back to not trusting him. They both needed to get their heads out of their butts. I kind of found myself not liking Trinity’s friend Melanie as the book went on. She seemed kind of careless about hurting other people. Even Trinity. Everyone needs a Jonah in their lives. He genuinely cares about everyone and goes out of his way make everyone happy. He is just a beautiful ray of sunshine!

This was a great follow up to Renegade! I’m looking forward to the next book!

During a particularly bad night at home, Maddy decides to take a walk to her favorite place, a bridge, and decompress. A strange man sees her and decides to keep her company until she feels ready to leave.

That man, Max, later becomes her tutor in charge or helping her catch up and pass her classes.

Max can’t comprehend her loss, but he feels a need to be there for her. He is also falling in love with her.

As her family life continues to break down, Maddy finds herself spending more and more time with Max.

I could not imagine living in a household like Maddy’s. This book does an amazing job at showing how loss especially sudden loss can change people. It also touches on the subject of depression and suicide.

It’s not completely depressing though as it also shows what a functional, close family can be like. Max’s family is both large and close. It is the complete opposite of Maddy’s and she feels overwhelmed and jealous at first meeting them.

This was a great read! The characters were believable and story had a great flow to it.

Review:

Rating: 4 Stars ✰✰✰✰

Lightning Forgotten by Lila Felix is the third book in the Lucent Series.

In this story, Theo and Colby are on the run from Sanctum. They find themselves in the dessert and run into some unexpected friends. Colby is getting sicker everyday and no-one knows why.

They are soon joined by their friends Colin and Ari to help them in try to find and defeat Sanctum.

Things are becoming dire and Colby finally comes up with a solution, but the consequences may be too much to bare.

It took me a minute to figure out what was going on in this story. I haven’t read the first two books yet. I recommend you do or you will be lost like I was.

After the first couple of chapters, I started figuring out what was going on and the story became really interesting. I became invested in the characters and the outcome of their lives.

The storyline is clean and refreshing. You can tell the characters love each other, but the intimacy is kept at a strict G rating.

I’m looking forward to reading the first two books.
