Title: Dear Diamond
Author: Stephie Walls
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 19, 2018
Blurb

One unfortunate decision had bought me a life sentence, serving time alongside the gang I’d worked years to avoid. My affiliation with Union 21 had wreaked havoc all around me.

Then came Diamond.

In a world filled with neon-pink lights, glitter, and rhinestones, she was a flawless gem. While she didn’t realize her worth, I recognized her value—priceless.

I’d stop at nothing to have her, even if that meant going against the most powerful drug lord around.

Friends come and go, but Diamond is forever.

Well…I am kinda on the fence with this book. It was a great storyline. I felt like it was addictive and exciting to read. A little on the darker side. It was also a super sexy read. Which is always a plus. I guess where I am having an issue is that the conflict should have been a little bigger with a little more bang involved. Other than that I really loved the entire book and characters. There was some hot and sweet and just down and dirty as well. Just what I was looking for. Walls is a new to me author and I’ll definitely check out what else she has going on.

I once was a hero.
Until she kept me as her captive, tortured me, and killed my brothers.
She bred a monster.
Nothing could stop me from seeking revenge.
But it was over so quickly—her easy death a mercy she didn’t deserve.

For a decade, the burning rage of what she did has transformed into something uncontrollable. Something I want to feed. Something I crave to unleash.

I want to make her pay.
Over and over and over again.

Finding the evil, spoiled women sates my ravenous, vengeful soul.
I hunt. I capture. I destroy.
Slowly. So slowly.
One, two, three, four, five…
And now six.

I’m wicked and sadistic.
I am Cold Cole Heart.
My mission is death and their payment to me has come due.

Number six thinks she is different.
Yet when I look at her, I see them.
She will pay.
They always do.

Title: Slaughter
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dark Romance
Release Date: October 26, 2018

 

Blurb
My name is Avery Decker, and my story isn’t for the faint of heart. It is about revenge  and hatred, misery and violence. I wasn’t always this way even though it was in my blood. I grew up happy and in love with my best friend until she betrayed me and walked away. After that, I fell into the deep, dark world I was meant for.

 

Presleigh Clarke’s actions turned me into the ruthless man I am today. Too bad for her, I believe people should pay for the things they have done. The more painful and messy, the better. I get off on making people bleed. It feeds my inner demon, and right now, he is starving. She crossed me once, so now she’ll know what it’s like to fear me. But not all stories end the way you think they will … mine certainly didn’t.

Holy hells bells!! What a freakin’ ride I just went on!! One I freakin’ loved. This book was packed with action. Not just the steamy kind either. Two words to describe this book would be dark and delicious. When I first read the blurb I knew I had to have this book immediately, and it did not disappoint at all. Although it was a little darker than what I thought it would be. Which for me was freakin’ great! To me the darker the read the more I like it.

Slaughter is a fast pace read. Lots of stuff happening very quickly. That’s the only thing that tripped me up while reading. I would get going flipping pages and was like wait…what!? But when I slowed down and went back I was like ohhhh okay. So it wasn’t that details were missing at all just that it’s super quick. I fell for Avery and Presleigh immediately. Their story isn’t one for hearts and flowers. It’s one for dark read lovers! Especially this dark read loving girl! Don’t miss this one!

Presleigh and Avery are childhood sweethearts who were born into evil families. From a young age, they are exposed to violence and brutality against women and young girls. Presleigh is disgusted by it and Avery is forced to join in.

After a separation, these two once soulmates have nothing but hatred for each other and have years for it to build and smolder. Avery’s actions towards Presleigh were borderline disturbing to me. He is violent, abusive and demeaning to her. I get he is hurt and there are more extenuating circumstances to both of their sides but after all these years it just seemed to be fresh in their minds.

It was very dark…a little too dark for me but the basis of the two lovers coming back together and the truth coming out was something I enjoyed but just not so much the brutality. If you’re looking for a dark, violent book this would be your jam.

Excerpt
Big blue eyes stare into mine with a look of terror. Good, she recognizes me. Even in her drunken state, and eleven years later, she still knows who I am.

 

 
Her pink lips part, inhaling sharply. Her entire body goes rigid. I take a step toward her as she pulls me in just as she always did. I never could control myself with her. But this time has to be different. I have to be in total control of myself and of her.
 
She doesn’t move.
 
She doesn’t blink.
 
She doesn’t breathe.
 
Deciding to close the gap completely, I take two more steps until my body is close enough to feel the heat radiating from hers. Her long, dark hair drapes over one shoulder, and it looks good on her. She loved when I used to run my hands through her short hair and play with it. Now I just want to wrap it around my fists and force her to her knees. We never did fuck. We made love—always soft and slow. Now when I picture us in bed together, she is bound and gagged. That way, she won’t be able to stop all the sadistic shit that comes to mind.
 
I’ve become one of those men I swore to never be! All because of her.
 
I want her to beg me.
 
I want her to bleed for me.
 
I want her to love me.
 
But I’m not stupid. None of those things will come willingly. I’m gonna have to take them. And I have no problem with that. She made me who I am today, after all.
 
She continues to stand there like a deer in headlights. I give her a threatening smile but reach out to tuck her hair behind her ear in an innocent gesture when what I really wanna do is slap that look of surprise off her face.
 
Her body physically shakes.
 
“Hello, Bunny. Miss me?”

Twisted by Mandi Beck ~ Release Blitz w/ Giveaway!

Title: Twisted
Author: Mandi Beck
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 19, 2018
Three friends walk into a bar . . . One walks out the fake girlfriend of a hot, bearded Scotsman. 
Fannin McGuire is up for promotion at Nolan and Krane Enterprises, but first she has to make it through her stepsister’s wedding. To Fannin’s ex. Yep. Her ex-fiancé is about to be her new brother-in-law. One big happy family. And lucky her, she also gets to work with him. 
 
While Fannin is putting all of her energy into her career, her ex is putting all of his energy into making her life hell. Just when Fannin is sure she’ll be attending the wedding without a plus one, in walks Jasper James to save the day. He’s the bartender at the Iron Flask, the account she’s trying to land, and everything she didn’t know she needed or wanted. Before Fannin knows what’s happening, Jasper is playing knight in shining armor and she likes it. And him. A lot. With his smooth Scottish accent, ridiculously good looks, and that beard? She doesn’t stand a chance. 
 
Jasper isn’t in the habit of rescuing anyone. But when Fannin is confronted by her ex about her lack of a date for his upcoming nuptials, Jasper can’t help but step in. Her wild hair, violet eyes, and killer legs have him doing a few things he normally wouldn’t. Never mind that he shouldn’t be getting involved with the woman in charge of making the bar a global success. 
Their fake relationship becomes more real than either thought it would. Now they’re at the mercy of their feelings when truths are twisted, and the lies don’t taste as smooth as the whisky.

 

Mandi Beck has been an avid reader all of her life. A deep love for books always had her jotting down little stories on napkins, notebooks, and her hand. As an adult she was further submerged into the book world through book clubs and the epicness of social media. It was then that she graduated to writing her stories on her phone and then finally on a proper computer.
A wife, mother to two rambunctious and somewhat rotten boys, and stepmom to two great girls away at college, she shares her time with her husband in Chicago where she was born and raised. Mandi is a diehard hockey fan and blames the Blackhawks when her deadlines are not met even though her favorite hockey player calls her…mom.

Who can resist a sexy Santa when you are trying to escape an office party from hell. As the boss, Dane is trying to not leave the party too early but when Nick sits next to him and offers a distraction, Dane is too curious to resist. Until the next day when all hell breaks loose as Dane discovers Nick is his newest employee.

“He belongs here with me.
I knew it, deep down, the moment his sexy ass smiled at me.
I was fucked right then.
Soon, he’ll realize he’s fucked too.
We’ll be fucked together.”

I loved Dane and Nick in the anthology and I adored them even more now that their story is complete. I’m thrilled with the ending…my tender heart was all fangirling and I may have shed a few tears during their book. This story is full of angst, lust and courage to take a stand. My heart broke for Nick and his family life. But this story took the little tease in the anthology to an entirely whole new level. It’s really a great book about a relationship that spans the whole age gap thing effortlessly because it’s deeper than just initial attraction. Is there some insta-love? Maybe a little bit. But I am all for it.

If you are fan of K. Webster’s taboo series, this little treat fits right in with all of the rest. I definitely am glad Dane and Nick got their own expanded story and proudly stand with my taboo family.
