Gahhh! The twist! Loved it. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were super intense and I devoured their stories. I had to know what happened to them. This book is set in a different type of world. One that’s sick twisted and to be honest a total nightmare. The book wasn’t meant to be a romance in my opinion. It was meant to bring light to a situation that’s happening all over the world. Huss nailed that part of it. Definitely a good read. Not for the faint of heart.

TRAILER

EXCERPT

I put one hand up and slowly sign, Talk to me. It’s an easy sign and she gets it, because she goes tense again, then shakes her head no. But then she repeats my signs back with modifications, pointing at me, tapping her chin with a sideways hand, and then pointing to herself. You talk to me.

I already did.

She shakes her head and makes a sign for ‘whisper.’

And now it’s my turn to go tense and just stare at her for a moment.

Because she got it right. The sign is ‘talk,’ but if your other hand is cupped on the side of your mouth, it means ‘whisper.’ Like you’re gonna whisper in someone’s ear.

Did she just… I squint at her and she frowns in response. Has she taught herself sign language?

That’s not possible. Not this fast. It hasn’t even been a week.

Then whisper to me, I sign.

She shakes her head again. And then she touches my lips with the edge of her fingertips and slowly drags them up my cheek before pulling away.

‘Kiss.’ That was the sign for ‘kiss.’

She wants me to kiss her.

I know this is a distraction. I know who I’m dealing with. A girl who has been silent so long, no one remembers her last spoken words. A girl who should be dead, but isn’t. A girl who should be anywhere but here with me, but is. A girl who four days ago didn’t know a single bit of sign language, and now knows enough to stun me silent.

So I should really know better.

I should push her. Keep going. Because I could make her talk. I know I could.

But then she leans towards me. And we’re not that far apart, so that kiss she just asked for is now an absolute guarantee.

Our lips touch and just… linger there for a breath.

And so many things go through my mind in that breath. I want to resist her offer. Push her down, roll over, and forget where I’m at and who I’m with.

But that’s just fucking stupid. I like this girl. A lot.

I want to kiss her.

And all those other thoughts earlier about not wanting sex… well. This seems like more than sex. So that’s something I am interested in.

When our lips touch everything that happens next—whether it’s today, tomorrow, or next year—everything that happens next is preordained. And there’s no way to stop it.

I cup my hands around her face, my thumbs caressing small circles on her cheeks as her mouth opens and her tongue touches mine.

There is maybe one more moment. One more chance to stop the car crash that’s coming, but it’s such a small moment, so short and tiny, it barely exists.

And what comes next is pure lust.

I open my mouth, kiss her hard. Bite her lip, grab her breasts as I drop my full weight over her.

She kisses me back. But her kiss isn’t urgent, like mine. It’s soft. And even though we’re stained with salt water, and sweat, and the wind, she tastes so sweet, I want this kiss to last forever.

(Book I:
DELIVER US FROM EVIL TRILOGY)
Monica James
Genre: Dark Romance

Monsters are real.

When I was five years old, I watched my mother take her last breath—a breath three monsters stole from her.

I never chose this life. My father says it’s my birthright, but all I see is a curse. It’s because of the Kelly name my mum was slain by the Doyles—our enemies in Dublin, the fellas livin’ on borrowed time.

All of Belfast fears my family, especially me. I’m Puck Kelly, otherwise known as Punky; the lad ye don’t want to double cross. 

I don’t do feelings or emotions. I never have…until she walks into my world.

Babydoll is a liar and a thief, but I can’t stay away. We both thrive in the darkness because that’s where our demons can play.

No word af a lie, sixteen years later, those monsters still haunt my dreams. But every monster is scared of somethin’…and that somethin’ is me.

No more hiding in the shadows because I’m huntin’ youse.

Run, wee monsters, run.

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.”

Jackson_ecover (2)

The devil came to me in disguise. Too bad I didn’t notice until it was far too late.

Vanessa:

The devil doesn’t always wear an evil mask.

Sometimes, he appears in the most beautiful form.

Like the super-hot bad boy with the dirty-blond hair and a wicked glint in his blue eyes who swept in out of nowhere, stealing all the air from my lungs.

I thought he was my savior.

But he’s my ruination.

And he’s just taken a machete to my heart.

************************************************************************************

Jackson:

For years, my rage seethed under the surface. Hidden behind a cloudy haze of my poison of choice.

But now, the fog has cleared.

And I’m out for blood.

I will annihilate those responsible for taking my sister from me.

Except he’s not here, so I go for the next best target.

The woman he abandoned.

Until it suited him to drag her into this messed-up elite world.

Sucks to be her.

Because when I’m done with Vanessa, she’ll wish she was dead.

Holy twisted suspense! Jackson’s story is a page turner I found hard to set down. He’s always been my favorite flirty, damaged horn dog among my guys. At times I wanted to throttle him but he’s just so freaking good at redeeming himself. Loved this intense, steamy story with all of my favorite characters popping up. Vanessa is a bit broken herself but she’s really a badass heroine in the making. She’s a survivor. A protector. Even heartbroken this girl fights like a champ. Lots of angst and unpredictable twists. Don’t miss this one!

Excerpt

“Enjoy your day off, bitch,” Chloe says as we pull down the blinds and lock the diner up after another busy day.

“Don’t work too hard,” I singsong. I’m in a great mood because I get to sleep late in the morning and I have a full day off to myself.

A throat clearing interrupts our banter. “Is this a good or bad time?” Jackson asks, and the rich undertones in his voice send shivers dancing up my spine.

“Oh, this is a good time,” Chloe answers for me, and I spot a devilish glint in her eye. “A very good time.” She thrusts her hand out. “I’m Chloe. Van’s best friend. You must be Jackson.”

I glare at her. Okay, I’ve got zero game, but that doesn’t mean Chloe has to rub it in.

“You told your bestie about me.” He smirks, and I can’t decide which one of them I want to punch more.

“Didn’t you tell Sawyer?” I ask.

“Guilty. Guess that makes us even.” He flashes me that panty-melting smile, and my lace thong evaporates from my body. Like poof, and it’s gone.

“Oh fuck,” Chloe murmurs, totally getting it now.

“Yep,” I reply, not removing my eyes from Jackson.

“You’re fucked, girl,” she adds, her eyes shamelessly raking over every inch of Jackson’s semi-naked torso. He’s in shorts and sneakers again, and damn, if that isn’t such a good look on him.

“Not yet she isn’t,” Jackson purrs, “but if she keeps looking at me like that, I’ll have my cock buried balls deep inside her before we’ve even gotten upstairs.”

I fan my face while Chloe looks like she might faint. “I’m trying to work out if that’s a threat or a promise,” Chloe admits.

“It’s a promise,” Jackson says, winking at me. “I don’t do threats.”

“He’s a keeper,” Chloe decides, tugging on my arm. “And I’m detouring to Jon’s place because I need his dick now.”

I fight a smile.

Title: Prince of Hearts
Series: Verona Legacy #1
Author: L.A. Cotton
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 2, 2020 

BLURB

Arianna Capizola is her father’s daughter.

Humble. Hardworking. Honest.

She’d rather spend her days helping at the local shelter than brushing shoulders with her vain and entitled classmates.

Niccolò Marchetti is his father’s son.

Dark. Dangerous. Deceitful.

He’d rather spend his days getting bloody in the ring than attending class and keeping up pretences.

When their paths cross at Montague University neither of them are willing to drop the walls they’ve spent so long building. But he can’t resist the girl with stars in her eyes, and she can’t forget the guy who saved her that night.

There’s only one catch.

Nicco isn’t Arianne’s knight-in-shining armor, he’s the son of her father’s greatest enemy.

He is the enemy.

And their families are at war.

**Prince of Hearts is the first book in Nicco and Ari’s duet. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book is recommended for readers 18+

Think Romeo and Juliet of modern times!!! This ends in a cliffy and I’m not even a little bit upset!!! This was a great book and beginning to a series!!! This review will be short because I definitely don’t want to give anything away because it’s just that good!!

Nicco and Arianne are star crossed lovers that meet at college. A college that Arianne had to beg her father to let her go to. He is a very overprotective dad and she has led a sheltered life. And there is a big secret being hidden there of why he is like that with her.

They fall hard and fast and when the truth is revealed you could feel their pain. Part of the truth that comes to light is that their families are sworn enemies of each other. This story has it all!! Angst, love, lies, secrets, twists…the whole enchilada!!! The secondary characters are also great and add more than a few funny moments. It ended in a jaw dropping cliffy and I am praying so hard the next book is released early because I can hardly wait. Really looking forward to the rest of this series.

EXCERPT

“It’s a beautiful night,” I said from the shadows.

“Nicco?” She glanced around, searching for me. When her eyes landed on me standing by the corner of the building, she stood up. “What do you want?”

“Ahh, Bambolina.” I let out a weary sigh. “That is a loaded question.”

“Humor me.” Lina took a step closer. The moonlight danced off the soft features of her face.

Jesus, she was so fucking beautiful.

“I want to kiss you.” I inched toward her, unable to resist the magnetic pull I felt whenever I was around her. “I want to finish what we started earlier. I want to feel you beneath me, hear you cry my name.”

I want to make you mine.

“You couldn’t get away from me fast enough earlier.” Her confused gaze cut me like a thousand tiny blades over my skin.

“It’s not what you think,” I said, moving closer still. Lina mirrored my movements until we were standing in front of each other.

Until she was close enough to touch.

“What’s happening to us, Nicco?” she whispered. “Why do I feel like this?”

“What do you feel like?” I brushed the hair off her neck. She had a thick hoodie pulled over her body, but I was still able to stroke the skin beneath her ear. Lina’s eyes drifted closed as she inhaled a shaky breath.

“I look for you when you’re not there. I feel you when you’re close. I can’t get you out of my head.” Her eyes opened again, fixing on mine. She smiled and it was like a bolt of lightning to my heart.

This girl.

This innocent sweet girl was ruining me.
