creeping beautiful


I wasn’t the one who broke her but I played my part.
She came to us when she was ten. I raised her. I loved her.
I taught her how to survive in a world of evil men.
But it wasn’t enough.

I wasn’t the one who saved her but I did my best.
She needed me as much as I needed her.
Bought and paid for on the auction block.
But not for the reasons you think.
She was my weapon.

I wasn’t the one who lied to her but I hid her truth.
She was broken before I got there.
Wild and angry. Defiant and bratty.
But she trusted me most.
She loved me best.
So I set her free.
Indie Anna Accorsi is a woman lost in her past.
A pretty little nightmare.
A gorgeous piece of misery.
A mess of lovely darkness.
She is creeping beautiful.
And now we want her back.

Whoa! So twisted, messed up but beautiful broken people. I honestly didn’t quite know where this story was going at times because these clever twists would pop up out of nowhere. None of the people are what I’d label as a “reliable narrator” so just when you think you have a truth you can throw into your memory bank…bam! No…that’s not really what happened. I enjoyed the secrets and the Company and the missions that go on behind the scenes. The storyline was amazing and intriguing. This first part was unraveling where everything took a sharp turn and went wrong. I definitely had some guesses and some were right and some were a little off base since I was led awry. But it was so fun to figure out a little tiny bit of what was really going on. Great read.

I tried to track her that first year. I felt obligated. I mean, I did turn her into this… bloodthirsty sociopath, right? The least I could do was keep an eye on her and make sure she didn’t lose her mind and start offing people. But she literally disappeared. No trace. By this time Adam, Donovan, and I had been running ex-Company teams for several years. We had connections. Not anything as intricate as what we had before the Company fell, but it was enough to get intel and keep teams alive.

Even with all that, Indie was gone. I found some security cam footage of her truck right after she left. Had a decent, if spotty, track record of her as she made her way east towards Mobile. But after that… nothing. That was under two hours.

Two hours.

That’s all it took for her to wipe herself off the map.

It was a weird time for me. I was so fucking confused. I kept playing what happened back in my head over and over again. Donovan left right after Indie, claiming he couldn’t be a part of this. So it was just me that night.

Just me. All alone in this house.

I’ve been alone here before. Every time Adam and Indie went on a job I stayed behind.

But this wasn’t that kind of alone.

This was… loneliness.

Adam wasn’t picking up his phone. I called him constantly through that night, but he never picked up once. Finally, I had left so many messages his voicemail was full and I gave up. I went up to my bedroom and fell asleep, confident Adam would call me with some kind of update.

He sent a text.

A fuckin’ text that said, “It’s over.”

Just thinking about that fills me with hot anger right now.

How do you send a text like that?

I called him back that same day. He didn’t answer. I texted. He didn’t answer. So I busied myself tracking Indie on the various security cams.

I figured, OK. Everybody needs a moment. We just need to get our heads on straight and figure this out. And then they’d all be back.

No one came back.

Well, I guess that’s not true. Obviously, someone covered the furniture in white sheets and shut the house up.

But everyone moved on so I moved on too. Went to my machine shop. Turned the upstairs into a livable apartment. Started making some art pieces. Mostly outdoor sculptures. Opened up a fucking Etsy shop.

Which makes me chuckle a little, that’s how stupid it sounds. I was a thirty-two-year-old retired child-assassin trainer selling metal art on Etsy.

But I like my fucking Etsy shop. It calms me. Gives me purpose. And I sell a shit ton of art on there.

Once Indie left there was nothing. I had nothing. She was my everything. I probably could’ve been happy if Adam had come home. Probably could’ve stayed in the business if he was there.

But he disappeared too.

He’d moved on. The things that happened that day could not be fixed.

We were all… broken.

So I already know what I’m asking Santa for this year….Smith Sinclair wrapped in a bow. What a hot alpha male this character was. I was let down however that the blurb leads you to believe there is a three way love triangle involving a priest…not the case.

Kate is a young reporter going after a hot story or at least she thinks so. She is investigating a sex club or secret society. However, she is hitting dead end after dead end. Smith is sent to stop her and send her back to where she came from storyless.

Only naturally, these two fall for each other hard. There are some hot sexy scenes and to be honest that is what got me through most of this book. While there is a priest involved, it’s not involving a threesome and I was a little let down with his storyline. It was a twist but one I saw coming. I did enjoy Kate and Smith and seeing their relationship grow despite all the odds against them. I was curious to see what the outcome of the mystery with the priest was and where all the pieces of the puzzle to this story fit. It was a good storyline but I needed a bit more. I will read the next book because I got invested in a character that is in this book. Hopefully the books get even better as the series goes on.

She found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkey, deer, and coyote roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she had been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into steamy love stories.

A romantic at heart, Eva looks forward to date night all week. The perfect evening includes well-crafted cocktails, a fabulous perfume, Cherry Garcia ice cream, and her husband, of course. If you add good friends, live jazz, and impossible shoes, she will follow you anywhere.

Eva holds a BA from Boston College, and a JD from the Washington College of Law. She spent a career working in domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and civil rights. Aspects of this work often find their way into her books.

When she’s not writing sexy stories, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

Book One

For twelve long years, I’ve breathed, I’ve bled for only one thing…


Four men took something from me, something which can never be replaced. That one night changed the lives of so many and taught me that monsters are real.

But I also learned I’m the biggest monster of them all.

Nothing and no one will stand in my way of redemption because those men…they’re now three. The fourth—he is the reason they call me Bullseye. They can run, but sooner or later, I’ll find them, just as I did with their friend. They’re already dead…they just don’t know it yet.

My plan was simple until I met her. A fierce tiger who had the power to break my heart. Lucky for me…she can’t break what’s already broken. I am no longer a man because the world is a jungle, and we’re all just animals—ready to tear one another apart.

“It’s as if heaven and hell are fighting their own personal battle, wanting to conquer the other side.”

I love me some Monica James books and her latest one does not disappoint. Bullseye is the first book in The Monsters Within Duet and it’s a mind-blowing mix of all things raw, gritty and twisted. While I personally wouldn’t consider this book super dark, it does walk that line and crossed over into depraved several times. Yes please, the more depraved and twisted the better! We definitely get a big ole mindfuck throughout this book from the very start to that crazy…I never saw it coming cliffhanger of a finish. Like what the hell was that? I finished the book yesterday and am still not quite sure what happened at the end but I do know I loved it and I need more now!

“My story doesn’t end with Prince Charming saving the princess and living happily ever after with her because I killed that fucking prince.”

Cody was just a kid when he snuck off to a party to impress a girl and what was supposed to be a night of fun turned out to be the worst night of his life when an unspeakable tragedy happens. He loses the person he loves most and so begins his obsession with revenge. Cody was no longer and Bull was all that was left.

“I’ll forever be imprisoned to the day I picked up a gun and shot a man in cold blood. However the only regret I have…is that I got caught.”

It’s been twelve long years since Bull has been out in the real world. Now free from the bars that confined him but not from the monsters in his head, his only goal is to execute his plan for revenge. Nothing can get in his way. Not even the beautiful and talented dancer he can’t seem to get out of his head. He knows he needs to stay away since she’ll only be collateral damage but he’s having a hard time sticking to what he knows he should do as far as Tigerlily is concerned. And Lily knows Bull is trouble. She can sense it from the first moment he walks into the Pink Oyster and comes to her rescue. Her draw to him is just as powerful as his is to her. To say there is sexual chemistry between these two from the start would be an understatement. It’s like a goddamn explosion going off constantly between these two. It was so damn hot I could barely stand it. Can their demons play nice with each other or will Bull’s need for revenge continue to consume him until there’s nothing left?

“I like the thought of seeing you beg…seeing you bound…seeing you bleed.”

I loved how raw and all around gritty this story was. I loved how even though Bull thought he wasn’t worthy, Lily saw so much in him. I absolutely loved his character and all the layers there were to the mysterious man he was. Lily was also pretty badass. She loved hard and was loyal. She worked her ass off and was proud of who she was no matter what others thought. This book had a ton of suspense and craziness and then that cliffhanger? I can’t wait for more!

“His darkness dances with mine.”

Awwww… Vaughn Spencer is everything. I had so many complicated feelings while reading this All Saints High book. He had all the reasons in the world to be the way he was because Vaughn was basically broken. And I felt broken right along with him. Lenora was much stronger than I thought she would be. Stronger than I would be. As much as she went through before Vaughn. As much as she went through BECAUSE of Vaughn, she kept bouncing back. She wouldn’t let anyone keep her down. Vaughn showed his heart in many little ways but I fell head over heels for that boy. He’s like that little boy that pulls the piggy tails of the girl he likes. As much as he felt not deserving of love, I loved the growth and healing Vaughn went through. Lenora and he both made me cry so much in the telling of their story but I loved every single page. Every single feeling pulled out of me until the very end.

Robin (1)



“How good are you at keeping secrets, Lenora Astalis?” His voice wrapped around my neck like a noose.

I wanted to cough. I needed to cough. He terrified me. I hated him with the heat and passion of a thousand blazing suns. He made me feel like a scaredy cat and a snitch.

“Oh, yes. If you’re coward enough to pretend you’re asleep, you’re good enough to keep a secret. That’s the thing about you, Astalis. I can smash you into dust and watch your grains dance at my feet. My little circus monkey.”

I might’ve hated Vaughn, but I hated myself more for not standing up to him. For not opening my eyes and spitting in his face. Clawing his unnaturally blue eyes out. Taunting him back for all the times he’d taunted all of us at Carlisle Prep.

“By the way, your eyelids are moving,” he said drily, chuckling.

He straightened up, his finger making a brief stop at the base of my spine. He snapped his fingers, making a breaking sound, and I nearly jumped out of my skin, letting out a gasp. I squeezed my eyes tighter, still pretending to sleep.

He laughed.

The bastard laughed.

Was he sparing me for the time being? Was he going to check in on me from now on? Retaliate if I opened my mouth? He was so unpredictable. I wasn’t sure what my life would look like in the morning.

I can’t borrow him.
He’s not a sweater or a skirt.
He’s not even her favorite dress—the lucky one she wears on first dates. The one she probably wore on her first date with him.

In my defense, I didn’t know who he was. To me, he was a cool, calm, confident stranger. He was perfection for the entire hour and a half train ride while the concrete jungle turned into a rolling green landscape.

To an outsider, we probably appeared more friends than hopeful lovers. But my blush came quickly, and his dimples indented with every smile. We definitely shared a spark of what could be.

Too bad I didn’t know who he was before I fell for him, because he can’t be mine.

This has a “Girl Code” storyline. When Blanca gets an invite to go stay with a childhood friend who she lost touch and has recently reconnected with she jumps at the chance. On her way, she has an encounter with a guy who checks all her boxes and has an immediate attraction to. But once she arrives, she forgets all about him until she gets to her new job. Not only does she work at the same company as Mr. Hottie but she finds herself working directly with him.

Ethan is still dealing with fallout from a breakup. He is not well liked at work and deals with family issues. He meets a woman who he immediately has a pull towards and coincidentally finds out that this same women now works for him. But Ethan has a strict rule…never date someone you work with. This rule is hard to follow with a woman like Blanca though and soon finds that she is wreaking havoc on that rule.

Blanca keeps her new work friendship with Ethan under wraps and only gives her childhood friend and new group of friends crumbs to go on. She is just getting settled into this group of friends and slowly trying to figure each of them out…including finding out more about her friend Sierra’s breakup with the mysterious “Sig”.

Ethan and Blanca rock along until a huge bomb is dropped on them that shakes them to the core. It’s a good twist but I could have seen it a mile away. I wanted to feel the attraction between these two but it took so long for that part to get heated up I wondered when it was finally coming. I would have loved it if it was more steamy but I will definitely read others in this series as it has some other characters I’d love to know more about.

Breathless by USA Today Bestselling author Lex Martin is NOW AVAILABLE! This is an all-new standalone romance in the Texas Nights series (each book features a different couple and are complete standalones).


Breathless by Lex Martin
Release Date: February 18th
Genre/Trope: Contemporary romance/Boy next door, friends to lovers




I wouldn’t say I ran away exactly—twenty-two is too old for that.

I’d call it self-preservation.

I have one objective: protect my heart from the boy next door who has no clue I’ve loved him my whole life, even with a front row seat to his revolving bedroom door.

My escape plan almost worked.

Except I left one thing behind.

Logan Carter hijacked my heart, and now it’s time to get it back. This time for good.


I wouldn’t say I’ve been lying this whole time—not about everything.

Not about how much I miss my best friend, and definitely not about how pissed I am that she left with hardly a goodbye.

She’s the last person I ever expected to ghost me, and her absence left a gaping hole in my chest.

When Joey Grayson steps off that bus, I know I’ll do anything to keep her home, and that means finding out the truth.

But I’m not sure how to tell her my truths when I’m living so many lies.

This was one of those books that you start and can’t put down. Joey and Logan are best friends since they were young and super close. Through bad times and good, they are always there for each other and there are a lot of both. It’s a friend to lovers storyline and Logan is the blueprint for the perfect man. He truly is the most genuine person with a heart of gold but leads people to believe what they want about him even if it’s bad.

Joey and Logan have always had an attraction to the other but out of respect of their friendship neither acts on those feelings. Due to an unfortunate miscommunication Joey feels the need to take off and use the excuse of her ailing grandmother to leave Logan and all his playboy ways. Her heart can’t take watching Logan with other women, and she realizes that she is wasting her time pining for him. He is heartbroken she is gone, longs for her and feels like he did something to offend her and make her leave. Boy, men are stupid.

Fast forward a few months and Joey is back for a wedding. Logan is not going to pass up any opportunity to spend time with her. Only Logan has a few secrets of his own that he is harboring and knows that if he wants to tell Joey how he truly feels about her he must tell her about these secrets. It was heartbreaking to watch these two characters who are clearly madly in love navigate through issues that arise. But it makes you see how much these two are truly soulmates. This was such a heartwarming story and the author did a fantastic job of describing the deep feelings these two have for each other. It was a great love story and I didn’t want this book to end! And did I mentioned I loved Logan and wished he was real? Will definitely read more from this author.

Sadie is the boss’s daughter and the manager of a huge band. A band filled with a bunch of hot alpha males. But Sadie is seriously drawn the Felix. He is a hot, blunt and sexy beast of a guy and she can’t keep her eyes off of him. Felix is the love ’em and leave ’em type with a painfully crude, filthy mouth. When he finds out a secret that Sadie is hiding, he hatches a plan.

Now no one said it was a smart plan but nonetheless it’s a plan. He’s going to blackmail her for her body until the band goes on tour. He is so crude and rude when he approaches her that it’s actually HOT! There is no way in hell her secret can come out and she decides to go along with Felix’s diabolical plan of letting him have her. Deep down she knows this is exactly what she has been dreaming about anyway, isn’t it? That’s another piece to her secret.

Naturally the hot sex they start to have stirs feeling in both of them that they prayed wouldn’t happen and they fight them hard. It was a great storyline but there were a lot of the pages wasted that would have been better spent adding more to the story. It was a hot but short book.

Love Defies Us Teaser 3


“Where is my goddamn diary?” I screech. I place my hands on my hips and tap my foot, trying to keep from putting it in his ass.

He stands up from the desk and tucks his phone back in his shorts, leans down with his hands in his pockets and whispers in my ear. “I put it somewhere safe, Sadie.” His confidence wraps around me. My name sounds rich and warm on his perfect lips, like eating warm fudge on a cold night.

“Give me my shit back! You lied and said you haven’t seen it. Asshole!”

He grabs my half-bottle of grapefruit juice from my desk and guzzles it down, then tosses the bottle in the waste bin. “I never told you that.” He pauses for a few beats. “How would you feel if I wrote those things about you? And you found out about it?”

I don’t respond. Guilt washes over me like a tidal wave. I shouldn’t feel guilty about what I wrote, those words weren’t meant for anyone to see.

“I asked you a question, and I expect an answer,” he demands, and his words cause my chest to clench. I never like taking orders from anyone, but the way he says those words massages my ears.

“I’m your boss, remember?” My words come out shaky and small.

“Technically, but your dad writes our checks, not you, Thumbelina.”

“Embarrassed.” I finally answer his question.

Just shoot me now and put me out my misery.

“I jacked off in the shower a few times thinking about what you wrote about me.” He steps closer to me, and I step back, leaning against my desk. He yanks my ponytail gently, exposing my neck, and his eyes stay clinging on my mouth. I swallow thickly and hard, and I feel my pulse throbbing in my neck. His soft and supple lips trail down my neck like soft flower petals massaging my skin. My sex becomes wet and needy. So needy.

“I want your lips bruised and red from you sucking my dick. I want your pussy swollen.  I want to fill your virgin mouth, pussy, and ass with my cum.” His warm breath tickles my cheek, and the hair on my skin stands at attention. “I’m starving for your pussy. You wouldn’t deny a starving man, now would you?”

Then he studies my reaction; my breath hitches. I’ve never had a man to talk dirty to me and his mouth is dirtier than Flint water.

“I guess you’ll have to starve.” I shrug. “When aliens land on our planet, then I might consider.” My voice is constricted with nervous.
