Falling for the Villain by M. Robinson & Rachel Van Dyken ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review!

From Wall Street Journal & USA Today Bestselling Author M. Robinson & #1 NYT Bestselling Author Rachel Van Dyken comes a full length, standalone dark romance novel.

“Play for me, Juliet…”

Those four words whispered in my ear again and again until I craved what I used to fear.
Such a simple demand from my captor—the man who stole me and refused to tell me why he wouldn’t let me go.

I was his.

He made me need him, just as much as he needed me.
I broke all the rules of the golden prison he put me in.  

During the day he ruled his dark, seedy world.
His subjects and me.

During the night—he bowed before my feet.  

Have you ever wondered what happened to the villains in all the fairy tales you read?
You’ll soon find out.

It all started when he kidnapped me and made me his pet.
And it all ended with me…

Calling him master.    

*This story is not for the faint of heart and may be uncomfortable for some readers. But, then again, stepping outside of your comfort zone may be exactly the thing you need…

This was a dark, twisted, angsty book for sure. Donovan is a sadist that trains women to be pets for wealthy and sometimes depraved men. His past is broken and shaped him into what he is today. Juliet is a sassy piano player and daughter of a mob boss. Donovan knows immediately he has to have her and kidnaps her. He tries to break her to build her back into what he wants. At times, I felt torn about this because it seemed to be more about punishment than anything else and Stockholm Syndrome definitely starts to set in. This plot in the story saddened me because Juliet is such a strong woman but has been broken so badly by Donovan it’s hard to watch at times.

Between past traumas and feelings cropping up, this story had angst, suspense, twists and was insanely dark. There were many sexy scenes with some cringeworthy. I wanted them to have genuine feelings for each other but I had a hard time with Donovan. He does try to redeem himself but I’m not sure if it’s enough to make me his fan. This one left me with some mixed feelings at the end!

Disaster Girl by Michelle Dayton ~ Release Blitz w/ 4 Star Review & Excerpt!

The only thing Tess knows better than walking into a disaster is digging herself out of one. But when she becomes the victim of a revenge porn site, she needs help — from brilliant and sexy hacker, Max. Falling for him could lead to another epic disaster…

Readers who love Christian Lauren and Jasmine Guillory will love this spicy, humorous contemporary romance.

Synopsis

Tess Greene knows disaster—dating disasters, computer disasters, family disasters, you name it. But just when her life is finally almost perfect, she’s targeted by an internet celebrity who runs a revenge porn site admired by douchebags across the country. She has one month before the entire world will have an up-close-and-personal view of her sexual history. Tess has always handled everything on her own, but for this disaster, she needs backup.

Max Hampshire, a brilliant hacker, is exactly the lifeline Tess needs. What she doesn’t need is Max himself. She does not need his quick wit, sexy black-framed glasses, or all-around sweetness. The last guy who helped Tess left with his life crushed and his heart broken, so she knows that staying far away from Max would be safer for everyone.

But safety isn’t really an option when dealing with sleazy predators—or love…

This book had me laughing out loud more than once. The quick witty one liners were perfect and well timed. Tess is just a mess…plain and simple. But her life seems to be getting better and her career has the potential to take off. She has a huge opportunity at work and she is grabbing it by the horns.

Only one problem…it seems that there is a revenge porn site up and running on the internet and the owner posts videos by towns of girls having sex with him. So needless to say when her town is announced and a preview of the videos are released, her friends recognize her and tell her. She is devastated and determined to get those videos taken down…not just of her but everyone.

Through a work friend, she meets Max, a brilliant hacker. Little by little Tess is attracted to Max and vice versa. There is so much content and scenes, this book was a page turner for sure. Max is absolutely one of my top favorite male characters. He is subtly and unknowingly hot, super smart and has a heart of gold. Literally the perfect guy. But will Tess see that? Or is she too blinded by her video to see what is right in front of her.

This was a great storyline, sparking chemistry between the two main characters and wonderful supporting characters. It was super funny and I definitely recommend it!

Excerpt

Copyright 2021 @Michelle Dayton

Like a lot of other people who often have sex without an emotional connection to one’s partner, I usually dislike all the stuff that comes after orgasm. The awkward cuddling and excusing myself to pee so I don’t get a UTI and the finding a nice way (or a blunt way) to explain that a sleepover isn’t happening. I don’t like sharing a bed, and I don’t like waking up with a stranger.

I should have known that everything with Max would be different.

The orgasm left me almost catatonic for a few minutes. I was vaguely aware of Max leaving the room to get rid of the condom, and I felt the mattress dip when he got back in bed. My body felt deliciously banged around, and my brain was mushy enough that I was almost dozing. I didn’t even squeak in protest when I felt Max’s fingers caress my face.

I did, however, shriek in pain when he yanked out one of my eyelash extensions. “Ow!” I smacked his arm as hard as I could. “What is wrong with you?”

He ignored my outburst, examining the eyelash between his fingers with fascination. “Look at this beast. It’s enormous. Stop your whining—they’re not real, right? How much could it hurt?”

In another bed, with another man, I probably would lie and say they were my natural lashes. But with Max, the filter between brain and mouth was just never where it was supposed to be. “It hurts a ton, you ass,” I snapped. “They’re stuck on with medical-grade glue. It hurts ten times more for you to pull out one of those than if you pull out a normal lash.”

Finally, he looked sheepish. “Sorry. I didn’t mean to hurt you.” A telltale flush on his neck. “I’ve just looked at your eyes so much lately. I’ve been curious. Why do you get fake eyelashes?”

What a dumb question. “Because I’m vain, you imbecile.” I was also a strawberry blonde, which meant my own lashes needed a heavy coat of mascara to be visible. With the extensions, I woke up already looking like my eyes were done for the day and without any smudging. A solid investment, in my book.

He rolled the lash between his fingers. “It feels like a pine needle.”

I started laughing. This was the oddest post-coital conversation. “You might be the strangest person I’ve ever had sex with.”

He looked between the lash and my face, laughing along with me. “Ditto.”

He blew the lash away very deliberately. Had he made a wish? Did wishes made on false lashes count? “Lie on your stomach,” he said.

Curious, I obeyed, curling my toes over the end of the mattress. Max pulled the sheet down, exposing my bare back. “You have a tramp stamp.” I could hear the smile in his voice.

“You already knew that from the countdown picture on the Sex Ghost website.” I tried to yank the sheet back up to cover the tattoo at the base of my spine, but he wouldn’t let me.

“When did you get it?” he asked, dancing his fingers over the decorated skin.

I snorted. “When every girl gets a tramp stamp. I was eighteen.”

“Why did you choose an anchor?”

Normally, I deflected when someone asked this question. I’d say, “I just liked the design” or “I have a pirate fetish” or “I dream of sailing around the world someday.” I always found it kind of funny-sad that no one ever looked at me skeptically and commented that none of my explanations sounded like me.

Maybe that was why I didn’t lie to Max. If he hadn’t been skeptical, I would have been so disappointed. Which would have been idiotic since I’d known him for a matter of weeks.

Daniel and Kat were the only two people to whom I’d tried to explain why I’d chosen that particular image. Daniel had immediately co-opted the meaning, which I didn’t appreciate. Kat didn’t really understand, but that was my fault because my explanation to her was incomplete.

So I didn’t lie to Max. I didn’t tell the truth either though. Instead, I deftly changed the subject. I gave a dramatic sigh. “I’d like you to know that the phrase ‘tramp stamp’ was not in the common vernacular when I was eighteen. If it had been, I would not have chosen to get a tattoo on my lower back.”

I was rewarded with his laugh. His hand rubbed harder, from the base of my spine all the way up to my neck. I arched my back like a cat. I hadn’t had an unprofessional back rub in years. I meant to make a flirtatious comment, something along the lines of “You’re good with your hands.” But what actually popped out was “I like the way you touch me.”

I immediately stiffened. That sounded both goofy and way too serious. I should probably get up and go now. It was definitely time to make a graceful exit. But Max just chuckled again and lay next to me, so close that we brushed against one another from shoulder to toe.

“Good.”

Bad Bad Girl is the second book in The Rats of Richstone duet and picks up where the first book left off with that crazy intense cliffhanger that came out of left field. I swear my jaw almost hit the floor…it was insane! I honestly struggled to get through most of the first book. It just didn’t work for me and I admit I was hesitant starting this story. I didn’t have very high hopes, but this book was so good! The drama, suspense, overload of angst…it was all there. The author nailed it with this follow up!

Phoebe has had enough of Richstone and can’t wait to get the hell out of dodge as soon as she graduates. But she has a few scores to settle before she leaves and never looks back. Growing up with the rich and elite wasn’t always as glamourous as it seemed. So many secrets, lies and abuse but when her friends were violently taken from her Phoebe Ridley finally breaks. Revenge is the only thing that will fix what has been broken.

“I’d allowed myself until midnight. As the new day dawned, it was time for Phoebe Ridley to wake up from this nightmare for long enough to wreak revenge on all those responsible and all those who thought I was a pawn in their game.”

This book grabbed me and pulled me in right from the start. I wasn’t sure how Liam would fit in at times because the main focus of this book was wrapped tightly around Phoebe’s insatiable need for revenge. But he fit in perfectly when and where he was needed the most. We saw a different side of Phoebe and I was a big fan of how the author peeled back all the layers of her character. We saw a different side of Liam as well. He was no longer just a rat from the wrong side of the tracks. He was so much more. I love the growth both of these characters had.

“I might let Phoebe know that she was under my skin. That when I was with her, the darkness wasn’t so bad.”

A ton of shit happened in this book. It was fast paced and in your face. There were times so much was going on that I did get a little confused and parts were lost on me. But the author pulls us right back into the chaos and puts us back on track. The ending wrapped up Phoebe and Liam’s story perfectly, and I am looking forward to the next book in the series.

This book picks right up a few days after the crazy cliffhanger in book 2. Mia is left in pieces after what Cade did to her and it was super frustrating seeing her go through all the emotions of the aftermath. Seeing her break piece by piece but I loved seeing how Bexley was there for her.

That boy would not leave her side and when he was forced to, it nearly broke him. But he never gives up hope that she will somehow heal not only physically but mentally. This book…wow…it definitely ties up all the loose ends and it’s a crazy ride. I loved seeing old characters as well. What an emotional trilogy this has been and I loved every minute of it. The part I wasn’t crazy about was the ending. Ugh…what a freaking let down. All this build up, all this carefully laid and planned out plot to build up our hate and anger that was oozing from every pore to be ready to cheer and that. That. What was that?

Part of me gets why the author went where she did. But come on. Alllllllllllll of what has happened leads to that? What a disappointment. I know I’m not alone here either based on other reviews I have read. Great books but not a fan of the end.
