He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs
through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it
doesn’t keep him from coming out.
My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except
for
 her. I watch Becca, though she doesn’t know. She saved
me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her
into a target.
My father holds a grudge and knife with the same
proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I’m the only monster who
can save her.

Nix “Mercy” watches over the little girl who saved his life when his father would have taken it. Over the years, he has earned the reputation of being the monster you don’t want to run into during the night. Although his appearance scares most people, he will stop at nothing to protect the people he cares about. But Becca has no idea someone is watching over her. Following her every move.

“My father and I had a woman in common. He hated her. I loved her. I felt a wave of déjà vu.

I was strong this time. The result would be different. Becca would live through his obsessions, unlike my mom.”

I have so many mixed feelings about this beautiful story. Nix didn’t have a loving childhood and I felt so torn that he was broken and felt unworthy of love. Although he was all stalky and protective of his girl, Becca, I loved the slow burn between them once he braves rejection to meet her in real life. He gradually tries to tell Becca about the danger she’s in but I wanted to shake him and say…spill it! My favorite stories always include characters that make their own family and Animal and Nix certainly fall into that category. The brotherly love these two have for one another was sweet and never ending. I can’t wait for Animal’s book to find out all the secrets he’s been squirreling away from Nix.

There was something about Nix that really spoke to me. Although he was protecting everyone else, I really wanted to protect Nix! This dysfunctional story was probably one of my favorites of 2017.

Mercy. Fire Down Below and Fire in the Hole, Booty Camp Dating Service and
Beast complete her comedy repertoire. The Revenger, a dark paranormal romance,
is finally in the light, and the last, a novella called Late Night with Andres,
is special because 100% of the proceeds go to breast cancer research.

But to me? He’s just Butcher. I see him. I see who he really is. I see a man who will do anything for the people he cares about. I see the man who will protect and love me above everything else.

I am just as obsessed with him as he is me. I will die for him and he would kill for me.

What everyone doesn’t know is I have the same crazy inside of me…

Well…… I don’t know whether to cry or be happy. Actually both. Because I love this series so freakin much and its came to an end. Jude and Tor won my heart in Wrong and haven’t let it go. This book though. Oh my. Ladies yall have completely out done yourselves. I loved all the words and all the feels.

Jude is out for revenge. He will stop at NOTHING to get it. Even giving his own life. Hes lost his daughter and his wife. He literally has nothing left to lose. This is his motivation. Hes a man on a mission and DAMN is it intense. I really hurt for Jude. Having everything and then losing it was extreme hell for him. But as usual with Stevie and LP nothing is quite what it seems. I cant go into this more. No spoilers.

This is a MUST READ SERIES! One you don’t want to miss. With as many downs as there are ups you never know whats coming. Only thing you can do is set down, buckle up, and enjoy one hell of a ride.

Synopsis

The rules of the game don’t apply off the field in this first Barons novel. 

New York Barons tight end Gavin Brawley is suspended from the team and on house arrest after a video of him brawling goes viral. Gavin already has a reputation as a jerk with a temper on and off the field—which doesn’t help him once he finds himself on the wrong side of the law. And while he’s been successful professionally, he’s never been lucky when it comes to love.

Noah Monroe is a recent college grad looking for a job—any job—to pay off his mounting student debt. Working as Gavin’s personal assistant/babysitter seems like easy money. But Noah isn’t prepared for the electrifying tension between him and the football player. He’s not sure if he’d rather argue with Gavin or tackle him to the floor. But both men know the score, and neither is sure what will happen once Gavin’s timeout is over…

Gavin doesn’t want any help after he’s sentenced to house arrest and suspended from his NFL football team but his agent insists upon one. Noah just lost his last job in social work because slept with the wrong man at work. The two couldn’t be more opposite but Noah takes the job to help out his unemployed father and pay back student loans. With an antagonistic beginning these two slowly navigate working together while an unexpected attraction blossoms. Will a closeted football player with anger issues and a nerdy personal assistant find a way to work and play together?

“A man who could have anyone he wanted, man or woman, had acted like a brush of my lips had given him life. And that was fucking surreal. And dangerous.

It could never happen again.”

Wow…I loved Gavin and Noah’s story. Like Noah, I’m not a huge sports fan. These two clash constantly because nerdy Noah has preconceived notions about how easy and privileged Gavin’s hetero life must be and Gavin doesn’t want someone with him constantly that might sell him out in the end. But really….it’s all about the off the charts attraction, people! I love the way the author deals with all of the emotions that develop between these two and the real life issues they face when the world intrudes. I actually was tearing up at some of the tough decisions. Noah really seemed to bring out Gavin’s soft side. I’m such a sucker for the tough guys with the marshmallow centers!

I really would love to read Simeon’s story. The guy with the endorsements and a secret life has come out as gay. I want to see if Simeon is going to keep being his crazy self or will this make him all introspective and ready to settle down.

Kason and Adaline, everything starts out perfect until the crave, need, want for Kason becomes more than he knows how to handle.

Adaline, Ady to her friends moves from Texas to Florida with her mother. Moving for any high schooler isn’t easy. Having to find new friends and learning how to fit in, ugh so glad those days a long over for myself. Ady does find a few friends in some guys, and in their small group Kason catches her eye right away.

Kason hasn’t had an easy life, growing up with a single mother that works two jobs to keep them afloat. Kason also works to help his mother. He has never known the life of luxury that his friends and classmates have. He is a boy some would say is from the other side of the tracks, but Kason has plans for his life. By getting into the “rich kids school” he is given a better chance to go to college and make something of himself.

Kason does everything he can to stay away from Adaline but just like a moth to a flame he is drawn to her. The connection is strong and he is tired of fighting it. He just has so many questions running through his head. Can he be her everything? Can he fight the compulsions that he craves so bad? Will loving and being with her be enough or will he always need just a little more?

So I’m going to let you in on a little secret…..this was my first E.K. Blair book *gasp*. I must say, I fully enjoyed myself. Crave is a mature young adult book that held my attention and kept me wanting more. It deals with adults situations that I’m not going to go into because that is a huge part of Kason and Adaline’s story.  I loved how well developed the characters were and how the story flowed so well. There were a few times that things got repeated more than once and I found myself lightly going over those, but other than that I can’t wait for part two! I can’t wait to see how Kason and Adaline’s story concludes.

Overall Rating 5

I love love love this series!!!!!! Emma once again knocks another out of the park! The chemistry with Ellie and Logan is super intense and Im sure its because they are forbidden. A no go area. Definitely a do not pass go do not collect $200. But this makes me love the story even more.

Ellie is such a free spirit. Almost to the point to where its dangerous. She takes life by the horns and makes the most of it. When her sister gets with a Royal she has no choice but to be in the spotlight. This is where Logan comes in. Hes her protector. The one she looks to for safety because she doesn’t get that feeling anywhere else. Its super intense what she feels for him. Only bad thing is hes a little older and she is not of age…. YET.

Logan is fierce. Super alpha. Smoking hot. He has all of the goods. LOVE HIM!!!! Granted there was a few times where I was like really man!!!! OWN IT!!!! BUT….. he makes up for it. He loves Ellie. And wants her so bad he cant stand it. But he knows he cant have her. He would lose his job. The one thing he loves and makes him happy.

Will they finally get their stuff together and be a couple? Consequences be damned? Well youll have to read and find out. Their journey is a hard one. Its not just easy and constant flirting. It soul consuming. Emma did a phenomenal job with it.

 
 
 
 

 
 
 
 

Logan St. James is a smoldering, sexy beast. Sure, he can be a little broody at times—but Ellie Hammond’s willing to overlook that. Because, have you seen him??

Sexy. As. Hell.

And Ellie’s perky enough for both of them.

For years, she’s had a crush on the intense, protective royal security guard—but she doesn’t think he ever saw her, not really.

To Logan, Ellie was just part of the job—a relative of the royal family he’d sworn to protect. Now, at 22 years old and fresh out of college, she’s determined to put aside her X-rated dreams of pat-downs and pillow talk, and find a real life happily ever after.

The Queen of Wessco encourages Ellie to follow in her sister’s footsteps and settle down with a prince of her own. Or a duke, a marquis…a viscount would also do nicely.

But in the pursuit of a fairy tale ending, Ellie learns that the sweetest crushes can be the hardest to let go.
***
Logan St. James grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, in a family on the wrong side of the law. But these days, he covers his tattoos and scars with a respectable suit. He’s handsome, loyal, brave, skilled with his hands and…other body parts.

Any woman would be proud to bring him home to her family.

But there’s only one woman he wants.

For years he’s watched over her, protected her, held her hair back when she was sick, taught her how to throw a punch, and spot a liar.

He dreams of her. Would lay down his life for her.

But beautiful Ellie Hammond’s off-limits.

Everybody knows the bodyguard rules: Never lose focus, never let them out of your sight, and never, ever fall in love.

But then the mood shifts, as if the air becomes thicker, weighted, more . . . sultry.
 
Because slowly, Logan sinks down to one knee in front of me—looking in my eyes the whole time. In this position, I could touch his shoulders, comb my fingers through his thick, dark hair. He’s the perfect height for me to bend down and kiss his mouth—the perfect height for him to kiss me back . . . in a lot of places.
 
My breath hitches. And I wonder he feels it too.
 
There’s a sound of tearing Velcro, and Logan takes something off his ankle—a holster, with a small silver knife, about three inches long.
 
“Keep this on you all the time,” he says seriously. “Just in case. If you wear a skirt, the strap will fit around your thigh.”
 
And I almost laugh. Most girls get a ring from a guy on his knees. I get a murder weapon. But still, it makes me feel safe . . . watched over. Like I’m something precious that deserves to be protected.
 
I take the knife from him, testing the surprisingly solid, heavy weight of it in my hand. I press my index finger to the tip.
 
Logan grabs my wrist tightly. “Careful. It’s sharp.”
 
There’s a small, painless nick, a tiny bead of blood, so I put my finger in my mouth, sucking.
 
And Logan’s watching me again.
 
Watching my mouth.
 
His chest seems to rise just a little faster, and his throat ripples when he swallows. He bends his head, curves his strong back, and then I feel his hands on my ankle, securing the strap. His touch is warm and self-assured. It’s the way he always moves—confident and experienced. Logan knows his body and he knows how to use it, in every way possible.
 
I almost moan. The sound is in the back of my throat, but I keep it trapped. I never knew the ankle was an erogenous zone, but it sure as hell is now. A hot pulse of pleasure streaks from Logan’s fingers on my bare skin, up my thigh, between my legs.
 
And I throb there, growing swollen and heavy as he keeps his hands on me.
 
Can he tell? Does he know? He’s so aware of everything, always so attuned, I wonder if he can sense my arousal . . . feel it in the air that clings between us.

I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old.

Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and “Janelle York” looped in bubbly handwriting.

However, one night in Vegas changed everything.

I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother’s best friend.

Five years later, I’m standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me. 

If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together…

You’re so wrong.

But if you think this is the story of how Holden blackmailed me into living with him…

You couldn’t be more right.
