Bred in a world of gang wars, violence, and secrets, they rule the bloody town of Thorn Valley and all the people in it…too bad for me I’ve never been good at kissing ass or keeping quiet.
Even if their savage spirits awaken something inside of me I thought was long dead, I can’t break. I won’t.
They think they scare me, that I’ll run and hide, but the joke’s on them. The Crows aren’t the first monsters I’ve faced, and they won’t be the last. There are worse evils out there waiting to take their stab at Ava Jade Mason.
I say let them try. I’m tired of running. Tired of holding back my darkness. Thorn Valley isn’t ready for a new boogie man. Too bad I’m already here.
Crooked Crows is a dark enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance, meaning the main character will have more than one love interest.

Most readers loved this book and sang its praise. For me, however, having read a lot of reverse harem/bully/school plots lately, it seemed too farfetched. The three guys in this story are in school but work for their “dad” at night as vigilantes. This scenario had me scratching my head. The characters were so grown up acting that it made me question why the storyline had them as so young and not older.
Ava Jade is a badass, tough chick and she takes no prisoners. She has secrets and does her best to protect them. The boys do not like her at first and aren’t nice to her at all. Like all the reverse harem books, each of them find themselves being drawn to her. This book did not pull me in as hard as I tried. I wanted to really love it but I never fully connected with the characters. As anyone can see, others really loved the story and I hope you do as well.
Elena writes stories full of feisty heroines and unforgettable heroes. She may also have a small thing for bad boys and often gravitates towards the darker things in life. When she comes out of her writing cave, she can be found obsessively rearranging her bookshelves, drinking an unreasonable amount of wine, or cooking overly fancy meals for her family and friends.

I would definitely heed the warning on this novella. I read a lot of dark or BDSM or bully romance. To me…there was nothing romantic about this story. I would more categorize this story as dub-consensual BDSM revenge erotica. Paul is a bit unstable and obsessed with payback against a bratty, artsy girl named Sage that he tutored in high school. If you like that type of erotica, this is a dark, titillating dubious-consent, punish the bratty girl by using BDSM elements tale. But for me…there was no romance…dark or otherwise. I found the short story entertaining for the category I mentioned.
Sage was right where I wanted her.
My little victim found her voice and uttered with her seductive purr. Poor thing.
“It would have lasted if you had lasted, too, Paul. It’s not my fault you came fast.” Sage had her typical wicked smile, but she was unraveling. Her lips were wide open for a kiss, her nipples were hard as pebbles and she was raising her hips to grind them against my crotch.
She gasped loud in protest when I crushed my lips against hers, bit them to the bleeding point and forced her to open her mouth. I pushed my tongue in and rubbed it against hers. Muffled moans escaped her lips. Sage struggled and writhed under me but wasn’t trying hard enough to release herself. My hands found themselves on her tender, pulsing throat and I sank my nails in the back of her soft neck until she screamed. I was bruising her delicate skin. It wouldn’t take a lot to crush her, break her windpipe and catch the last breaths of her life in my mouth. Instead, I grasped her hard enough to hurt and bruise her. I deprived her of air and controlled how much she’d get as I was devouring her, sating my hunger for the taste of an untamed, captivating creature. All her sounds drowned in my rough kiss. At first, she responded with the same painful lust by sinking her teeth in my tongue and fighting for control. The lack of oxygen and my power over her took their toll, and I assumed the top position.
She tasted just like I always thought, sweet and spicy. The mild taste of whiskey on her tongue just made me go wilder and kiss her in a more ferocious way. I sucked her tongue into my mouth and breathed some air in her, thrilled to be necessary for her survival.
When Sage grew weak in my arms, I hurried to remove my fingers off her neck and slid them down her firm breasts. It amazed me how hard her nipples were, like two little pieces of rock I’d soon torture, just like the rest of her sensual body. That little witch needed to learn her place. She wouldn’t have any say in what would happen to her, that I’d have no qualms in taking her and treating her like my private toy. Sage would be my whore tonight.
I played with her tender tits and drank in what I’ve longed for all these years. Then, with one smooth and precise movement I ripped her tank top open, shredding it to strips of ruined fabric. The kiss was intense enough to make my head spin. That was the perfect moment to release her luscious, roughened and bleeding lips and let her scream out.

Title: Anarchy (Book 2, Hades) Author: Tate James Release Date: March 26th Genre: New Adult Dark Reverse Harem Romance Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Five years ago, I made a choice that I haven’t regretted a day since. I protected the single most important person in my world, my little sister. I protected myself, and I seized control of the Tri-state Timberwolves.
Since then, I’ve wielded that power with an iron fist. Done whatever it took to take care of my people. Kept us out of the public eye, and kept us safe.
Now a ghost from my past is threatening my position. Challenging me. Peddling their poison and breaking my rules. Stabbing at me in the dark.
Blowing up my fucking club.
But this last attack has taken it one step too far. They have no idea the lengths I’ll go to protect what is mine. And Lucas? He’s mine.
They want anarchy? They haven’t seen anything yet.
Hades is a FOUR book contemporary suspense reverse harem romance. This means that, in addition to violence and thriller elements, the leading lady of the series has 3+ love interests and doesn’t choose between them for her Happily Ever After. Anarchy is book TWO of FOUR.

I have read several books by Monica James and loved them all. I already knew going in, this book was going to be good but this book wasn’t just good, this book was EVERYTHING! It was dark. It was evil. It was sexy. Holy hell, it was so sick and twisted! And can we also just take a minute to appreciate that amazing cover? First off it’s so damn sexy and it’s also everything I imagine when I think of Punky.
I feel like nothing I say will be able to convey just how amazing this book truly is. I also don’t want to say too much for fear of giving anything away so this review will be a short one. This is definitely one of the books you have to go into as blind as possible so you can truly enjoy firsthand every fucked up twist and turn on this never ending crazy train. I can’t remember the last time I devoured the pages of a book so quickly. As soon as I finished it, I went back and read it again. I think I loved it even more the second time around. You don’t want to miss a thing while reading this book. Every single word is so important and every single thing about this book is mind blowing. Monica James raised the bar to a whole new level with Thy Kingdom Come and I am 100% here for it!
“It’s in the wrong, corrupt, and violent where I thrive.”
There’s a war going down in Ireland between the Kellys and the Doyles. It’s a war that started long ago. Somewhere in the midst of all the chaos and bloodshed was Puck Connor Kelly who at five years old watched while safely hidden away as his Mother took her last breath. He never forgot what he saw that day. Now that Puck aka Punky is all grown up all hell is about to break loose and no one is safe from the monsters that are about to come out to play.
“No matter what it takes, no matter how long, I’m going to kill every last Doyle and burn their motherfucking kingdom to the ground.”
Punky trusts very few people but then along comes Poppy aka Babydoll. The two of them are drawn to one another right away but Poppy has a secret. One that could destroy all of Punky’s carefully laid plans. He knows she’s hiding something but will it be too late by the time he realizes what it is? I absolutely loved both of these characters so much! I can not recommend this book enough. It’s a must read but buckle up and hold tight because it’ll take you on one hell of a ride.
“We’re inches apart, and the world soon fades into the background so it’s merely us. It’s quiet here.”

𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐬𝐡 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐞 is the explosive conclusion in The Ravenhood Trilogy from best-selling author, Kate Stewart, is live!
This trilogy is of a modern day take on Robin Hood, but with more Fast and Furious/Fight Club vibes. It’s an unconventional love story—#𝐁𝐀𝐃𝐁𝐎𝐘𝐒#𝐀𝐍𝐓𝐈𝐇𝐄𝐑𝐎𝐄𝐒—filled with 𝐬𝐮𝐬𝐩𝐞𝐧𝐬𝐞, hella 𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐚𝐦, major 𝐭𝐰𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐬, a little 𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, and 𝐀𝐋𝐋 𝐎𝐅 𝐓𝐇𝐄 𝐅𝐄𝐄𝐋𝐒!
Secrets and Lies…
I’ve lived the entirety of my life wrapped up in subterfuge for one purpose—revenge.
Through the years, I lived more as an enigma than a man.
For so long, I denied I had a beating heart of my own.
Until her. Until she unearthed the starving vessel inside, forced me to acknowledge it, forced me to understand that I’m capable of bleeding the same as any other.
For that, we paid. We’re still paying.
Yet, she demands it still, the useless heart of the ruthless thief and shameless villain she fell for. My fear is, I’m no longer that man.
With the lies I’ve told, the life I’ve led, my mistakes are beginning to catch up with me, day by day, one by one.
This is my last chance, and I have no intention of losing her again, but as the deception of my past starts to unravel and close in, shedding my humanity may be the only thing that can save us both.

Wowza! All the questions from the previous books are finally answered. Stewart did a great job weaving this into the other two books. It flowed seamlessly. Tobias is still taking my heart and holding it prisoner. Love this story so much!!
