Kael

Will my truth destroy us forever?

I believed I was a monster.
The things I’d been forced to do were what nightmares are made of.I wasn’t worthy of love or of having a forever.
My mind had been set, my heart locked away.

Until the beautiful firebird flew into my life.
I was meant to train her, not love her, but my heart didn’t agree.
And as much as I pushed, she pulled.

Lives intertwined by chance.
Hearts rebellious against rules.
⠀⠀
Paige

Will my heart allow me to forgive?

I was owned by him the moment he looked at me.
My strength, courage, and fire burned only for him.
My Wolfe claimed me, as I claimed him.

My life was no longer my own, but no one could take my love.
Or so I believed until the day he left.
I fought. I survived. I changed.

Destiny had us in her sights.
We were bound together by fate.

More Than Need You by Shayla Black

02 MoreThanNeedYouI’m Griffin Reed—cutthroat entrepreneur and competitive bastard. Trust is a four-letter word and everyone is disposable…except Britta Stone. Three years ago, she was my everything before I stupidly threw her away. I thought I’d paid for my sin in misery—until I learned we have a son. Finding out she’s engaged to a bore who’s rushing her to the altar pisses me off even more. I intend to win her back and raise our boy. I’ll have to get ruthless, of course. Luckily, that’s one of my most singular talents.

Sixty days. That’s what I’m asking the gritty, independent single mother to give me—twenty-four/seven. Under my roof. And if I have my way, in my bed. Britta says she wants nothing to do with me. But her body language and passionate kisses make her a liar. Now all I have to do is coax her into surrendering to the old magic between us. Once I have her right where I want her, I’ll do whatever it takes to prove I more than need her.

Roamer by Janine Infante Bosco

ROAMER CoverDeuce:

The first moment I stared into Ally’s tortured blue eyes, my subconscious knew I’d never escape her. She called to the darkest part of my soul and made it impossible to ignore the strange pull I felt towards her.

Some things are just meant to be.

As long as we were both breathing, my heart would do time with hers. Like the famous outlaw lovers, Bonnie and Clyde, Ally and I committed the perfect crime. I claimed her heart, and she stole mine.

I only meant to save her.

To heal her.

Now, my past threatens to ruin her.

Wanted dead or alive, I’ve got her by my side and together we’ll ride.

Ally:

I thought the world forgot me.

That I had died at fourteen.

But, I never knew life until I knew him.

Rescued and healed, I found love in the face of an outlaw.

Whether he fails or flies, I’ll ride until I die.

I’m his Bonnie and he’s my Clyde.

A love as strong as ours will never die.

The Last Guy by Ilsa Madden-Mills & Tia Louise

the last guy updatedFrom Wall Street Journal bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills and international bestselling author Tia Louise…

The first rule of office romance is don’t do it—especially if your dream is to hold the anchor spot on the nightly news and your boss is trying to get you fired.

But one look at Cade Hill, the sexy new sports director, and uptight reporter Rebecca Fieldstone is daydreaming about other things.

Sex in his office…

Sex in the on-set kitchen…

He’s the last guy she’d ever have a one-night stand with.

Cade Hill draws a thick professional line on office romance—until it comes to the hyper-focused Rebecca. He wants her, and he gets his wish when a chance encounter has them having the hottest sex of their lives.

It’s just a hook-up, she says.

When can we do it again? he says.

With Rebecca determined to keep Cade in the friend zone, it’s going to be an uphill battle for Cade to convince her he’s the last guy she’ll ever want.

Bad Penny by Staci Hart

51ICcusaucLNothing good comes after the third date.

See, date three is the crucial point when things get real, which is exactly why I bounce out the door, twiddling my fingers at whatever poor boy I’ve left behind. Because if I stick around, one of three things will happen: he’ll profess his undying love, he gets weird and stalky, or I’ll go crazy. Like, Sid and Nancy crazy. Like, chase-him-through-the-streets-begging-him-to-love-me crazy.

Seriously, it’s better for everyone this way.

So when I meet Bodie, I figure it’ll be the same as it ever was. It doesn’t matter that he doesn’t put a single string on me. Doesn’t matter that he’s funny and smart and jacked and can play my body like a grand piano. Because even though I’m built for love, love has only carved me up like a Christmas ham.

Resistance is something I can only hang on to for so long, and he has persistence in spades. But my heart isn’t as safe as I want to believe, and neither is his. And the second I ignore my cardinal rule is the second I stand to lose him forever.

REVIEW: Unraveled by Bethany-Kris

From what I’ve been led to believe Bethany-Kris is know as a Mafia Queen in the book writing world and after reading this I’d have to agree, she sure knows how to knock out an impressive and hard to forget mafia story.

This was filled with so much emotion it was a story of forbidden love with some heart wrenching moments, there was danger and suspense, it was an all-round action packed read which kept me captivated from start to finish.

Gian’s an alpha-male he’s strong and commanding danger oozed from him, he’s the sort you love to hate as-well as hate to love especially when his big secret was revealed, Cara was a girl who appeared to carry the world on her shoulders yet her inner strength showed through. The chemistry between Gian and Cara was off the charts but what they shared was definitely a love story with many difficulties everyone was against their relationship.

This was a well written story with great character development. Bethany-Kris done an amazing job she’s one talented lady even though there’s this tiny part of me that really dislikes her right now and that’s down to the fact that she’s left me desperately waiting to see what’s going to happen next.

I will be right here patiently waiting on Part 2.

Series: standalone
Genre: romantic suspense
1dc99-addtogoodreads

As the son of an Irish mobster, Connor O’Neil spent his boyhood hiding from the horrors of his own home. His one reprieve was a girl he knew only as Evelyn, but even she was taken away. As a man, Connor is determined to stay away from his father’s business. With Sean, participation is not a request, but a demand. The truth is, Connor might be more like the evil he’s trying to hide away from than he would like to admit.

And he’s already spent years trying to cover the scars left over from the pain.

A chance encounter puts the lost girl from his past back on his path, and he no longer has a choice but to face the darkness he’s been ignoring for years.

Evelyn. Sasha. Slave.

She doesn’t really know who she is anymore.

Or maybe she does, and she doesn’t want to tell.

She isn’t the same as she once was—now a thing to be kept and maintained, shuffled from owner to owner until it was her time to go. She only became Connor’s because he took her when he knew she wasn’t his to take.

Except she isn’t Connor’s at all …

And he can’t keep her hidden forever.

Review by Sheena
4/5

A dark Irish mafia story which introduced the main characters, Evelyn and Connor, as children and then fast forwarded to a chance meeting in adulthood which sets them on a path to kidnap, death and destruction…

Told from Connor’s perspective ..the writing was really excellent the author created a ruthless and despicable world in which the antagonists were forced to play their parts in order to survive…I particularly liked the conflict within Connor he was such a contradiction a violent gangster, a killer, a generous protector and a dirty talking, possessive lover…..in addition the supporting characters, whether forces for good or evil, were similarly interesting and credible…a special mention here for Killian, an ally of Connor, I would love to read more about him….

….this book was a fascinating and intriguing read…. compelling and dark, some aspects were very dark but the violence and abuse within the pages was not gratuitous it was there for the purpose of moving the narrative forward and creating an atmosphere of menace…..ultimately this was a love story I was completely invested in the lives of Evelyn and Connor both perfectly flawed and perfectly matched and willed them to find their happy ever afters despite the growing odds against them…..this is the first book I have read by this author and it will definitely not be the last
