Ruthless Sinner by Erika Wilde ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review & Excerpt!

She’ll do anything to destroy his family.

Ruthless Sinner, an all-new, sizzling hot mafia romance from New York Times bestselling author Erika Wilde, is out now!

Dark, dangerous mafia soldiers like Marco Russo were made men, but luckily for me, they weren’t made for marriage. Which made my job of seducing him so much easier.

It was supposed to be a simple undercover operation. One that required me to work in a strip club in order to get close to Marco and do whatever it took to coax him to spill his family’s secrets. Our attraction was undeniable, so establishing a relationship with him was the easy part. Enticing him to share sensitive information took far more finesse.

But during all those steamy nights we shared I learned enough to take down his family. I also made the stupid mistake of falling for the enemy and now I was going to have to make a choice.

My head or my heart.

My job or my love.

My end or my beginning.

Because once Marco realized who I was and how I’d deceived him, he’d have a choice to make, as well.

To let me live . . . or to kill me to prove his loyalty to his family.

This book kept me on my freaking toes at all times! This is the second book in the series and focuses on Marco and Kennedy (AKA Jewel). Marco is a mafia playboy who never goes back for seconds. He is a whirlwind in bed and leaves women wanting more. Most of the women work at the local mafia strip club. He sets his sights on Jewel, a dancer that he’s been watching for weeks. He becomes slightly obsessed with her and determined to get her in his bed at all costs.

Jewel is Kennedy…an undercover FBI agent that has been sent into this evil den of lust as a stripper and told to “do whatever it takes” to get into his close circle. Kennedy does exactly that! Normally she would never fall into a mark’s beds but there is something about Marco. Like a moth drawn to a flame. I don’t want to give up too much about their steamy interludes but let’s just say that not everything about the mafia is what it seems. It’s up to Marco and Kennedy to take the information they have found and decide what to do with it. Both of their lives depend on it. This was a great book. A quick read with some super steamy scenes. The two characters’ attraction was smoking and you could feel their chemistry. Definitely recommend!

Keep reading for a look inside Ruthless Sinner!

Marco was waiting when I stepped back out into the alley after work, only this time he was leaning against his motorcycle.

Oh, my God. I knew he had one but we’d never ridden it together. My legs trembled, my body already getting hot at the thought of that machine between my thighs, molded to Marco’s back as we rode…

“Nice ride,” I said, walking over and running a hand along the leather seat. “Where are we going?”

“Just a little place I know,” Marco said, and tossed me a helmet.

I put it on, and didn’t bother asking if he was going to wear one, because clearly he wasn’t. I shook my head. “Y’know, I can see why your dad worries about you.”

Marco just smirked, swung his leg over the seat, and straddled the bike. “Hop on.”

“I hope you’re not trying to impress me,” I warned him as I slid behind him and wrapped my arms around his waist, “because the opportunity to do that passed about a month ago.”

That was a total lie. I was definitely impressed by the motorcycle and I was prepared to be impressed by whatever else he had planned, but there was no way I was going to let him know that. I didn’t want him to think I was easy. Even though it had already been a month and I could probably let myself relax by this point.

Still, the thrum of arousal and anticipation that shot through me as he hit the throttle was unreal. I held on tightly and pressed my face to the back of his shoulder as we took off, out of the alley, onto the deserted late-night street.

Wherever he was taking me, I knew I’d like it. For all his fancy toys, Marco didn’t like to make a big deal of things. He wasn’t about taking me out to a fancy restaurant. Instead he took me to his favorite random ice cream shop. I liked that. I was ready for the low-key thing he had planned.

And in the meantime, I really loved pressing myself against him as we rode this motorcycle. I could feel his back muscles shifting and flexing underneath me, the firm feel of his abs against my hands as I kept my arms wrapped around him. When I rested my cheek against his back, his body sheltered me from the wind, so I could just watch the flurries of blurred light as we sped past buildings and out of the city.

At last we stopped at a hilly park that was high up, and had a great view of the bay. Marco stopped the motorcycle and got off, offering me his hand.

I looked around. “Why are we here?”

Marco rubbed at the back of his neck, like he was nervous. Big bad Marco Russo, nervous? The idea was endearing.

“This is one of the areas my family bought outside of the city,” he explained. “One of the ways we maintain our strength in the mafia and the legitimate business world is focusing on charity efforts. It gives us a good reputation with people, helps us with our public image. Vincent’s new wife, she’ll pick her own charities she wants to work with, where her focus is, but my mom was all about community outreach and the environment so she built a lot of parks. Like this one.”

He gestured towards a sign I hadn’t noticed before. It dubbed the place Marco’s Park and below it had a few lines explaining who built the park and in what year.

I looked at him in surprise. “This one’s yours?”

“Yeah, we all have one. Mom liked to name them after people in her life. And I think she knew that we all needed a place to go and breathe. I don’t know if Vincent goes to his park a lot, but I like to come here when I need to get out of the city and just chill.”

“But you love the city.” New York City was vibrant, pulsing with life, and so was Marco.

“Most of the time.” Marco leaned back against his motorcycle and looked out over the city, its lights gleaming like so many fireflies. “But what I do for the family… I see the dirty side of the city. The grime, the blood, the ugly. Sometimes I gotta get out and take a few deep breaths away from it all.”

“I understand,” I said softly. Working in the FBI wasn’t the glamorous catching of bad guys like you saw on television. A lot of the time I didn’t know if we were really the good guys or if there were only shades of gray. “Thank you for bringing me here.”

Marco gave me a small, soft smile, and it tugged at my heart.

“Who knew the bad boy with a motorcycle had such a soft side?” I added, trying to ignore that feeling in my chest and hoping to get myself back onto safer emotional ground.

“Hey, I’ve got layers,” Marco protested with a smirk. “And you can’t say you don’t like the motorcycle. I saw your face light up when you saw it.”

“Well,” I admitted, feeling there was no harm in telling him, “I’ve always had a bit of a thing for bad boys.”

“Congratulations then, you hit the jackpot.” He winked at me.

This is a story about a troubled tattoo artist who self sabotages himself at every turn and a young juvenile whose life is less than stellar. Conor has had a rough life as a juvenile in the system. Choices made backfired and his life is going nowhere. A twist of fate brings his dark secrets to his doorstep by Aurnia. Maybe that is why he is drawn to Aurnia so much. Her drug addict father has her living in a crack trailer that all sort of low lives are in and out of daily. She never feels safe and has lived the life of an adult at seventeen. The things she has had to endure at a very young age has jaded her and made her grow up very quickly. You can feel her hopelessness at times and it broke my heart.

When these two collide there are instant fireworks. Conor fights his attraction for Aurnia not just because of her age but for history repeating itself. But Aurnia has her sites set on him and she won’t give up. Their banter had me laughing out loud more then once and there were times my heart was ripped out for Aurnia. This author gave me all the feels for these characters and that is what kept me hooked from the first page until the last. Loved watching this love story unfold!

An Honest Lie by Tarryn Fisher ~ Blog Tour w/ 4.5 Star Review!

An Honest Lie by Tarryn Fisher is LIVE!! 

“An Honest Lie is riveting suspense, but it’s also a scream of defiance, a howl of rage.” –#1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover

“I’m going to kill her. You’d better come if you want to save her.”

Lorraine—“Rainy”—lives at the top of Tiger Mountain. Remote, moody, cloistered in pine trees and fog, it’s a sanctuary, a new life. She can hide from the disturbing past she wants to forget.

If she’s allowed to.

When Rainy reluctantly agrees to a girls’ weekend in Vegas, she’s prepared for an exhausting parade of shots and slot machines. But after a wild night, her friend Braithe doesn’t come back to the hotel room.

And then Rainy gets the text message, sent from Braithe’s phone: someone has her. But Rainy is who they really want, and Rainy knows why.

What follows is a twisted, shocking journey on the knife-edge of life and death. If she wants to save Braithe—and herself—the only way is to step back into the past.

This seething, gut-punch of a thriller can only have sprung from the fiendish brain of Tarryn Fisher, one of the most cunning writers of our time.

From an outsider with secrets at the cool girls’ table to a twisted game of cat and mouse. I freaking devoured it. Rainy grew up in an insane world dealing with daily psychological manipulation. Now present day she finds herself having a hard time trusting people. And who could blame her? Parts of this story were pretty intense and I loved how Rainy navigated complicated situations with either a take no part and step back or only allow outsiders this much of you. She’s a great street smart, trusts your instincts sort of girl and it helped me back her one hundred percent. Very entertaining and clever novel that pulls you in and drags you into a crazy, narcissistic world with no escape.

My thoughts are flying everywhere! This YA Romance series perfectly describes what being young and falling in love for the first time is all about. These four have formed a friendship that will defy whatever life throws at them. Mallory is embarking on a serious relationship for the first time in her life. But is she ready for all that will entail? Because Noah wants a soulmate. Harry is a little lost. Mohammed isn’t quite sure if he wants to settle down. It’s an angsty but fun weekend for the mates at the Country House. I have so many feels on where this story is heading. Just when I think everything might smooth out for my young friends…a wild card is thrown in the mix and confuses me. I want to sit all of the characters down and say…what are you thinking? But I know that the next story will pull me into the pages and carry me along on this roller coaster ride…I don’t want it to end.

The Savage by Daniela Romero ~ Release Blitz w/ 4.5 Star Review!

The Savage by Daniela Romero is now live!

USA Today bestselling author Daniela Romero delivers a steamy new adult romance about a fútbol bad boy and the broken girl he’s determined to love

I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.
I officially cut boys out of my life.
They’re untrustworthy, vicious, and cruel.
So, if you told me this past summer that PacNorth University’s notorious bad boy was going to become my dark knight, I wouldn’t have believed you.

I’m not the same reckless, carefree girl I was three months ago.
That girl was naïve.
That girl was stupid.
That girl was destroyed.

I learned my lessons the hard way.
I’m still picking up the pieces of the girl I was before.
And, I know better than to fall for a sinful smile on a pretty face.
So I never should have given him so much as a second glance.

Gabriel Herrera can’t be my anything.
Only, he tells me I’m his everything.
But putting my trust in the boy with questionable intentions is the kind of devastation I may not survive.
What am I supposed to do?

The blurb for this book threw me off track quite a bit. The blurb made it sound like a bully romance with some deep dark secrets and I love a good bully romance. But this book was a tad different. In my opinion, it wasn’t a bully romance. I didn’t feel the whole bad boy thing going on. I mean there was a bully…a complete asshole POS bully. But it wasn’t who I thought it would be. This book definitely touches on some hard topics and could be a big trigger for some people. The author didn’t shy away from anything where that is concerned but handled the story around the subjects very well. If there aren’t trigger warnings for this book, there probably should be. With that being said, this was a very good read with some strong characters development.

“I need…it hits me and my chest heaves, breath seesawing in and out. This isn’t real. It’s a dream. A bad, bad dream.”

Cecilia was just your ordinary college coed enjoying school, classes and some partying. She had good grades, a few besties and things were going really good. In the span of one night, everything spiraled out of control. As the memories of what happened come crashing back one after the other, she becomes a shell of who she was before. She loses so much due to no fault of her own but rather the evilness of someone else. She carries her pain until it weighs her down so much she can’t take it anymore. But she didn’t expect Gabriel Herrera.

“A devil in disguise. I don’t know why I assumed otherwise. It’s the beautiful ones who hide their rotting centers best.”

Gabriel may be a soccer star but besides his two close friends he mostly keeps to himself on campus. Having suffered a horrible tragedy his pain is still fresh. As far as he is concerned, it’s better not to get involved with all the extra shit that goes on around campus. School, soccer and his brothers…nothing else mattered…until Cecilia.

“Maybe we can be broken together? It might make the pain hurt a little less.”

These two characters are so complex and broken. I loved them both. Gabriel was so much more than he seemed. He may have saved Cecilia but she saved him right back when he didn’t think it would ever be possible. Both of them have been through so much. The trauma that each carried was drowning them until they found peace with each other. Their jaded, broken pieces somehow fit together. I did have a little trouble with a few of the developments in the second half. If not for that, this would have been a five star read for me. But I feel like I can’t really say much more because I don’t want to give anything away. Please keep in mind the blurb doesn’t at all prepare you for what happens inside the pages of this book. I really can’t wait to see where the author takes Cecilia and Gabriel’s story next but I’m really pulling for a HEA.
