This book, y’all!!!!! Jewel E Ann is a must read author and this book is a fucking MUST READ! I’ve become addicted to her stories because they are some of the best I’ve ever read and someone I easily recommend. This book is at the top of that list! All the twists and turns had me reeling. I ate this book up!!!

The characters are intense and mysterious. I loved their chemistry and constant banter. Although it was an emotional read and had dark aspects I loved the little hints of humor throughout. It was addicting as hell!

Definitely a must read! Easy five stars and not one to miss!

Oliver Kent isn’t just drop dead gorgeous…

He’s drop dead dirty too.

 I haven’t seen him in a decade. Ten whole years since Oliver Kent broke my heart and we said goodbye to our teenage dreams forever.

They say he’s a crazy successful businessman now, living wild in London with a huge bank balance.

And me? Well, I’m still here living the same old small-town life, pretty sure I’ll never see him again.

Until rumour has it that he’s going to be at our high school reunion…

How the damn hell is a girl supposed to cope with the Oliver Kent effect all over again?

It’s a whole fresh round of want. Filthy, dirty want for the boy who drove me wild with his filthy, dirty fantasies. So many memories aching for more.

Just as well life sometimes gives out second chances, isn’t it?

One thing’s for sure, I’ll be jumping in to take mine.

ABOUT JADE WEST

Jade West Logo

 Jade has increasingly little to say about herself as time goes on, other than the fact she is an author, but she’s plenty happy with this. Living in imaginary realities and having a legitimate excuse for it is really all she’s ever wanted.
Jade is as dirty as you’d expect from her novels, and talking smut makes her smile.

Malum part 2 Release Blitz Banner

Malum: Part 2 (The Elite King’s Club book 5), a dark and emotional romance by Amo Jones is NOW LIVE! 

Malum2-complete-ebook

 Synopsis

 Some girls don’t like pretty things.

Some girls like things that are destructive, and toxic. Things that fuel our bodies with adrenaline and bring our demons to their knees.

They say magic isn’t real, but it’s it the closest way to describe love? It doesn’t exist physically. It merely exists around us, within us, possessing our souls and making us do stupid shit. Shit like falling in love with a boy who knows how to rip my world apart and raise hell with a simple flick of his wrist. Their secrets are now mine. I’m not just in the middle of this game, I’m helping orchestrate it. Can the cries of my aching soul be enough to drown out the burning embers of my mistakes?

The mind strengthens the heart, roughing the edges to prepare it for war. This is a war I will not win.
This is a war of fate.

Wow. To say that I was waiting patiently for this book would be a lie. I’ve been on pins and needles so when it hit my kindle it was on like Donkey Kong. I devoured it. And now I wish I would have taken the time to savor every word.

Nate. Enough said there. But I’ll elaborate a little. I don’t want to spoil anything but just when I think I couldn’t love him more I was proven wrong. Tillie is the queen!!! This woman is perfection. She takes everything in stride and makes it her bitch. So much respect and love for the both of these two. I don’t know if I’ll ever love any other characters as much as I do them.

Amo knocked this one out of the fucking park. So many mixed emotions and I don’t know what to think about them. My heart is struggling to keep up with my mind on it. This book was amazing and Amo is brilliant. So dark and depraved!!! For fear of spoiling anything I’ll leave you with this…if you haven’t read the Elite Kings books…wtf are you thinking? Stop what you are doing and read them right now!!

SLAY: RIVALRY (Slay Quartet #1) by Laurelin Paige
Release Date: June 4th

Slay Cover

Blurb

Edward Fasbender is a devil.

He’s my father’s business rival, a powerful, vicious man who takes what he wants and bows to no one. I only took the meeting because I was curious. I thought he was going to offer me a job.

But that’s not what he’s after at all. His proposal is much more intriguing, and I see an opportunity. An opportunity to turn the tables and bring down the devil.

I’ve gotten in trouble playing these games before. I know when the risk is too great, when the stakes are too high. I know how to be cold and strong-willed and destructive. I know how to withstand dominant men with arrogant charm and rugged features.

Yet I can’t resist taking on Edward.

And I can’t resist the pull he has on me.

Soon I’m not so sure which side of the battle I’m standing on–if I’m the warrior meant to slay,

Or the one who will be slain.

Yassssssss!! But let me just say that when I realized who this book was about I was like “oh hell nawwww.” But then, of course, I devoured this freakin’ book. Super angsty, so much tension it’s not even funny, and so damn hot I nearly melted.

That ending…JESUS! I knew in true Laurelin fashion there would be a cliffy, but that one I didn’t see coming. I literally said “ahhh shit, here we go” turned the page and it was THE END! Seriously!!!! I’m reeling right now because this book was brilliant.

Waiting on book two is going to be painful. I’ll have to reread this one just to make sure I didn’t miss anything in preparation. That will be no hardship at all since it was complete and utter perfection! MUST READ!!!!!

Devil to slay a dragon release teaser

Excerpt

Sitting like this, on the arm of the chair, his back straight, we were practically the same height. It occurred to me that this was the closest we’d ever been to having equal footing, and somehow that made me both heady and encouraged.

I reached out to rub the collar of his shirt between my thumb and forefinger, my breath stuttering under the thick weight of apprehension, my mouth watering from how close I was to touching his skin. This close, I could smell the liquor on his breath and the musky scent of his cologne and the fainter scent underneath of pure man.

“Tell me your requests.” Was it my imagination or did his voice suddenly seem darker? Less steady?

“There’s only one.” I leaned in until my lips were near his ear. “I want to add sex to the deal.”

He made a sound low in his throat, half like a laugh, half like a moan. “What, now?”

He turned his face toward mine, and now our mouths were only inches away from touching. I could feel the warmth of his exhale on my skin, sending a trail of goosebumps down my arms.

“Now, sure.” Fuck, I was wet already. “But I meant in the marriage, too.”

His lips danced around mine. “You don’t know what you’re asking for. You want to be humiliated, degraded, and hurt?”

Yes.

Because that was the goal of The Game.

But, also, YES!

Because, in that moment, there was nothing more I could imagine wanting than to be all those things, to be humiliated and degraded and hurt, by him. I wanted it so much I ached. Ached in places I hadn’t known could feel.

I reached my neck forward, pushing my mouth toward his.

Just when I thought the kiss was inevitable, he leaned back. “You couldn’t handle it.”

Flipping houses if not for the weak of heart. Neither is falling in love.

Jamie Cook is a work-in-progress. He’s always wanted what his parents have: a good marriage, lots of kids, and financial security. He thought he’d have the first two with his ex-girlfriend while the third would come once he got his house-flipping business off the ground. When his ex doesn’t subscribe to his five-year plan, he makes Cook Brothers Construction his sole focus.

Then he moves next door to April Williams, a sassy single mom he can’t stop riling up. Throw in her matchmaking mother-in-law, who’s set her sights on Jamie being April’s knight in a leather tool belt, and a house threatening Jamie’s sanity, and it should be a recipe for disaster, but Jamie wants this three-month project to last forever. That’s if he can stop being the neighbor from hell and prove to April he’s not just flipping a house—he wants to flip her heart.

GAHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! It’s been so long since I’ve read a book from Harvey and after this one I want to kick myself for that. The light humor, steam, and real feels made me feel like I was on cloud nine. This book was amazing. I loved it. The characters and their banter were super fun and light. Although there was some drama, it wasn’t anything that I felt was unnecessary. It really brought the story full circle. Harvey nailed it. The heroine in this book…I LOVE HER! This woman knows what she wants and she doesn’t accept anything less. She’s no doormat. She’s sassy and so much fun. LOVED THIS BOOK HARD! Now I need the next Cook.

“Jamie?”

“Yeah, buddy?”

“So, are you my new dad now?”

I open my mouth to say something, but nothing comes out.

Before I’m able to find the power of speech again, he continues, “But you’re my boss too?”

I decide to play along. “Your boss?”

He nods. “At the house. Building and stuff.”

“Well, not exact—”

“So that makes you my dad boss then?” He has the most serious look on his face, and I’m totally out of my depth here.

“Um…” I look to the door, willing April to walk through it and save me.

“Dad boss then,” he says again with a nod. “That’s good. Means I can get more money now.”

I cough, reaching over to the nightstand to take a long, much-needed drink from my coffee cup. I say the only thing that comes to mind. “Sure thing, buddy.”

“Awesome,” he says, a huge smile transforming his face. “Then I can buy flowers for Mom, so the next time you break our garden, I can fix it and make her smile like you did.”

“That’s a great idea. Now… have you seen my pants?”

“Are you not wearing pajamas?” Without warning, he lifts the sheet covering me from the waist down. “Oh, you’ve got big boy boxers like me. Mommy says I can only wear them when I wear shorts though. Are you sure you wore pants last night? Maybe you wore shorts because you’ve got your big boy boxers on.” And thank fuck I kept them on before falling to sleep last night.

“I was definitely wearing pants. Do you want to look in the bathroom for me?”

“It’s okay. I don’t need to. I saw Mommy carrying them into the kitchen.”

“Lovely?” I yell, hoping she can hear me. When a loud beat starts coming from downstairs, my bullshit sensor starts pinging. April is up to something, especially since it’s the exact same Queen song I was playing the night we first met. Two can play this game.

“Should we go get pancakes?” I ask.

“Yeah!” he says, jumping up and down before running out of the room.

I move to the bathroom and use the facilities. Searching for my clothes, I come up empty. Sure enough, my pants have indeed disappeared. With nothing else left to do about it, I walk out of the bedroom and down the stairs, wearing nothing but my boxer shorts.

I stop still the moment I enter the kitchen. Just as I’d imagined, April is sitting at the dining table, coffee in hand, her legs up, her ankles crossed on a chair with a wicked smirk on her face. Her only saving grace is the huge plate of pancakes piled high in the middle of the table.

“Hey Ax, how’s breakfast?” I ask.

“So good,” he groans, stuffing another forkful of pancake in his mouth.

“What are you doing after school today?”

His head snaps up. “Nuff-thing,” he says with a mouthful of food.

“Good. I was thinking you could bring your mom and gran over and we could give them a tour of the house now that it’s finished.”

“Oh wow. Yeah,” he says, puffing out his little chest. “I can show them where I worked.”

“Yep,” I reply with a grin. With his attention back on his rapidly emptying plate, I move in front of April. ”You look good in my tee. Did you also find my pants on your travels?”

Her lips twitch. ”I thought I’d do some laundry.”

Enticing Journey

Twisted by Aleatha Romig ~ Release Blitz w/ 5 Star Review!

The underworld of Chicago is far from forgiving. It’s a world where knowledge means power, power money, and money everything.

While I paid the ultimate price to have it all, it wasn’t my decision to give up my life.

That doesn’t mean I ceased to exist, only to live.

Going where the job takes me and living in the shadows, with deadly accuracy I utilize the skills inherent to me, not knowing from where they came, not recalling what I’d lost.

And then I saw her.

Laurel Carlson.

I shouldn’t want her, desire her, or need her, yet with each sighting I know she is exactly what I have to have. Laurel has the ability to do what I thought was impossible. She sees what others don’t.

My gut tells me that it’s a deadly mistake to change my plans and open my world to her. My mind says she’ll be repulsed by my twisted existence.

None of that matters, because my body won’t take no for an answer.

I’ve made dangerous mistakes before.

This time, will the price be too high?

From New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig comes a brand-new dark romance bringing us back to the same dangerous underworld as SECRETS. You do not need to read the Web of Sin trilogy to get caught in this new and intriguing saga, Tangled Web.

TWISTED is book one of the TANGLED WEB trilogy which will continue in OBSESSED and conclude in BOUND.

Well…the woman got me again! I was sucked in and completely immersed in this Twisted world until the final page. This series is going to be a little dark and delicious and I love it. Getting to know the new characters in the book was definitely intense. Something dark and dangerous is going down and the emotions it causes are on point. I felt the fear and angst. Aleatha is so darn good at making you feel what the characters are with her writing. I’m soooo looking forward to the next book! So so so many questions that I need answers to. Most likely I’ll probably read it again just to make sure I didn’t miss anything. Romig is dropping a bomb with this one and I can’t wait to see what happens.

Five easy stars for this duet. I loved it hard. This story wasn’t an easy one to read with the heartbreaking truths that come out. But by the end it was so worth the tears and Kleenex. This story has grit and shows that love can win if you work at it. Now I want to go back and read them all again!

Excerpt

Blackout, Book Two Excerpt: “Not A Single I Love You”

©Copyright 2019 Janine Infante Bosco

Gripping the doorknob, I draw in a deep breath and hold it. As soon as I find the courage to open the door, I release the breath and shuffle my feet inside the room. Before I can take another step, a uniformed officer stands in front of me.

“Can I help you?”

“I…I’m his wife,” I stammer. Silently, he rakes his eyes over me. I’m about to ask if he needs to see my I.D. or something, but he moves to the side and allows me room to enter.

“No touching,” he warns. All too familiar with the rules and regulations surrounding a prisoner, I jerk my head in response.

“Lace, baby, is that you?”

My eyes snap towards the sound of Blackie’s voice and a gasp escapes my lips at the sight of him. Shackled to the bed by a pair of handcuffs, the man I married is unrecognizable. Aside from the dry blood and harsh bruises covering his beautiful face, his left eye is swollen shut and just below the brow there is a deep gash that’s been stitched with black thread.

“Lace?”

“I’m here,” I croak.

“C’mere, let me see you. I need to see you,” he slurs desperately.

The bitter part of me wants to let him stew and feel everything he inflicted on me in that courtroom. All the pain and every ounce of heartache. But the bigger part, the part that loves him unconditionally, runs to his side.

“There’s my gorgeous girl,” he rasps, turning his head to get a better look at me. “Don’t cry,” he murmurs. “I hate when you fucking cry.”

“Then please stop making me,” I say, choking on a sob.

Quietly, he continues to stare at me, and I watch as his bottom lip trembles. Tears spill from his good eye as he pulls at his chained wrist. The cuffs slap against the bedrail and he releases a guttural cry.

“I’m so fucking sorry,” he rasps. His tone remorseful.

I remain silent as I stare at him in disbelief, wondering how we got to this tragic point in our marriage. The longer we continue to stare at one another, I start to think I’m punishing him with my silence, and I try to find it in me to respond to his apology.

“How are you feeling? How’s my baby? Did you get the teddy bear?”

At the mention of the teddy bear, my gaze snaps to his and his apology is forgotten. Suddenly, I’m consumed by anger as I recall waking up to find that stuffed toy in my lap.

“I stood in that gift shop mulling it over, trying to decide between pink and blue,” he reveals, pausing for a beat as he tries to crack a smile. His face is too swollen and all he really manages is a lip curl. “It’s a girl, Lace,” he continues. “I feel it and I dream of her. Every fucking night, I dream of our daughter.”

“Stop!”

I can’t listen to him go on about our baby when he turned his back on us. I’m sure he’s got an excuse, a grand one at that, but I’m done listening to him. He broke something between us the day he threw that teddy bear in my lap and he built a concrete wall between us inside that courtroom. Sadly, I would’ve forgiven him for those things. I would’ve done everything in my power to piece together what he broke, and I would’ve torn the wall down until it was nothing but a pile of dust.

“You promised me,” I cry, stepping closer to the bed so he can see the pain in my eyes. The pain he put there. Choking on my tears, I shake my head as my knuckles whiten around the bedrail. “I heard the baby’s heartbeat, Blackie,” I rasp. “I reached for you and you weren’t there.”

“Baby…”

“You weren’t there!”

“I’m—”

“Sorry, yeah, I know,” I say, shaking my head. “That’s not good enough anymore.”

“I know I fucked up,” he chokes, his voice raw with emotion. “I fucking let you down, but if you let me explain—”

“I don’t want to hear it,” I interject, lifting my hands to wipe the tears rolling down my cheeks. “How many times are we going to do this, Blackie?”

“As many times as it takes to get it right,” he answers.

“No! You don’t get it, do you? It’s not about us anymore. We can’t keep doing this. For fuck’s sake, you’re chained to a hospital bed. I can’t even touch you,” I shriek, eyeing the guard who is doing his best to appear invisible. “You know, I wanted it to be you…I wanted us to go the distance, Blackie. I wanted you to be the one who remained at my side when I lost myself. I wanted you to be the man who reminded me of the love we made and the family we created. At the end of a long life, I wanted your face to be the last one I saw before I died. I wanted your hand to be the one I held when I left this world. It was supposed to be you. You promised you’d be that man. You swore on everything we were and everything we’d ever be.”

“I’m yours,” he growls. “But you got it wrong, baby. So, fucking wrong. You’re not going to lose yourself and I’ll never have to remind you of the love we made, because if you ever forget, I’ll just make you fall in love with me all over again. Every day, for the rest of my life. Baby, don’t give up on me. I’m begging you. One more chance. I’ll make it right. Schwartz is working on getting me out of here.”

Tears fall endlessly.

Mine.

His.

They’re the tears of love.

Of two broken hearts.

As much as I want to believe everything he’s saying, I know better. He doesn’t mean to lie to me. He doesn’t mean to break my heart. He doesn’t mean any of it, but he also can’t help it.

He can’t help himself.

“You know,” I start, pausing to clear my throat and wipe my eyes. “I think you like breaking,” I whisper. My words aren’t meant to be insulting, they’re meant to inspire. To help him see the error of his ways. I speak to him not as his wife, but as a trained professional—something, I swore I’d never do. I guess we’re both going against our word now.

“I think you like falling apart because for a brief pause, you get to feel whole after someone picks up the pieces. After the euphoria of being complete wears, you come crashing down. You realize you did nothing to help yourself, and you do whatever you can to break again, hoping this time you’ll be the one to pick up the pieces for yourself. I wanted to be the one who changed you. I wanted to breathe life into your fragile soul.”

“You are…you’re everything, Lacey,” he shouts, his voice full of conviction.

“I’m everything and nothing at all, Blackie,” I whisper. “I spoke with Schwartz, he says you’re going to have to go to rehab.”

“I’ll get him to appeal the judge’s decision. Whatever it takes to get me home to you and the baby,” he insists.

“Blackie, you have a problem, a serious problem and twenty-eight days in rehab won’t fix you,” I tell him, watching as his expression goes grim. His jaw tightens and the air around us changes. It becomes thick.

Too thick.

“What are you saying?”

“I’m saying, I can’t fix you. I’ve come to terms with it and now it’s time you do as well. If the judge sends you to rehab, I think you should go. If you want any kind of relationship with our child, you will go.”

“Don’t fucking do that.”

“What am I doing?”

“Don’t use our child against me.”

“I’m not,” I admonish, hurt he would even suggest the idea. “I’m looking out for our child. There’s a difference. Blackie, you have no idea how it feels to be on the receiving end of your bad decisions. You have no idea how heartbreaking it is to never feel good enough.”

“Don’t I? Why the hell do you think I’m as fucked as I am? I know I don’t deserve you.”

“No, Blackie, you think you don’t deserve me. I’ve done nothing to make you believe that and everything to convince you otherwise. Now, you survived another overdose and by the looks of it, a beating that probably should’ve killed you. God is giving you another chance to get right with yourself. Make it count. Not for me. Not for our baby, but for yourself.”

“And what happens if I don’t?”

“I think you know the answer to that,” I whisper.

This story of ours won’t end with us old and gray. It’ll end tragically with our beautiful child never knowing its father and me burying the man I love.

“You didn’t say it,” he murmurs, forcing my attention back to him.

“What?”

“You didn’t say you love me.”

I didn’t, did I? Not a single ‘I love you’. Not even a ‘Thank God, you’re okay’.
