Synopsis

A book worthy of this awesome series. A strong heroine, a loving but determined alpha, and a little girl who holds them all in her tiny hands. 5++ stars.’ ~ Melanie Moreland New York Times and USA Today Best Selling Author

‘This series is a reread many times over. Trust me, this is a unique, different and special Rock Star read, it goes beyond the normal sexy and alpha, it’s remarkably exceptional.’ ~ Lis, Goodreads reviewer

Touring the world with Redfall, one of rock ‘n roll’s hottest bands, wasn’t the life Cameron Chapman’s parents dreamed of for him. Born into a privileged Boston family, Cam was expected to continue in the Chapman mold: the perfect job, the perfect wife, the perfect life–and above all else, no scandals.

But that ship sailed a long time ago.

A virtuoso on the violin, her music is the only thing Samantha McKenzie can rely on after almost losing the most precious thing in her life. She’ll sacrifice everything to keep her daughter safe…even if it means hiding from her past and burying her own dreams.

Meeting the beautiful and mysterious Samantha opens Cam’s eyes to possibilities he’s never considered, and he makes it his mission to unravel her secrets. But will her past come back to haunt her, or will they choose to chase a new dream together?

Genre-Psychological Thriller
Kindle Edition-320 Pages

Something bad has happened to Alison Taylor. 

Her Saturday night started normally. Recently separated from her husband, Ali has been persuaded by her friends to go on a date with a new man. She is ready, she is nervous, she is excited. She is about to take a step into her new future.

By Sunday morning, Ali’s life is unrecognisable. She wakes, and she knows that something is wrong. She is home, she is alone, she is hurt and she has no memory of what happened to her.

Worse still, when she looks in the mirror, Ali doesn’t recognise the face staring back at her. She can’t recognise her friends and family. And she can’t recognise the person who is trying to destroy her…

The Date

The Date by Louise Jensen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The-Date-by-Louise-Jensen-title

“The Date” was my first book by this particular author and I really did enjoy it.
I was rapt and invested from the very first instance here.
A mystery told from Ali’s and her enemies POV, an enemy who we have no idea; along with Ali the identity of.
So during this, I was glued to the emerging picture with an almost obsessive compulsion.
Watching with a rapt fascination usually reserved for my current favourite TV show.
This was, in my opinion, psychological warfare at its very finest and I can’t recommend “The date” enough, especially if you’re looking for something to compel and confound you all at the same time.
This one’s is a tricky one to describe without giving the whole game away so I’m not going to go into any great detail here.
This story’s blurb really does sell itself, how could you not want to delve deeper and discover more after that intriguing description.
Also using the medical condition Prosopagnosia, which to put it in its more understandable form Face Blindness, was absolute genius.
Adding this unique aspect to “The Date” took this for me to a whole new level.
Such one-off circumstances created a scenario where anything and everything is possible, no matter how remote and improbable that occurrence could actually be.
This also had more twists and turns than a fairground rollercoaster and I changed my mindset on a hairpin frequently with the sheer abundance of red herrings thrown in my path.
These diversions only purpose that I could ascertain was to confuse and muddy the already churning waters I was currently occupying.
The author really has done a remarkable job of weaving her mysterious web here, managing to entangle me within the threads of this tale with her oh so vivid imagination.
This was a fantastic read that’s really a no-brainer for me to recommend; loved everything about it.
Happy to give this one my seal of approval.
Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of “The Date” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

About CD Reiss:

CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY’RE HIDING IN THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR?

 

From the author of the massive bestseller CLOSE TO HOME, comes the second pulse-pounding DI Fawley crime thriller.

A woman and child are found locked in a basement room, barely alive.

No one knows who they are – the woman can’t speak, and there are no missing persons reports that match their profile. The elderly man who owns the house claims he has never seen them before.

The inhabitants of the quiet Oxford street are in shock. How could this happen right under their noses? But DI Adam Fawley knows that nothing is impossible.

And that no one is as innocent as they seem. 

In The Dark (DI Adam Fawley, #2)

In The Dark by Cara Hunter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Extract-In-The-Dark-Cara-Hunter

Really enjoyed this one; which actually surprised me because initially upon first embarking on “In The Dark” I found it a bit of a chore to get into.
In retrospect, I think it was the many POV’s that I had teething issues with, I just found it a tad difficult to separate the many characters perspectives.
Losing my way slightly and getting turned around on who was who and also whose head we were inhabiting at any given time.
It was just slightly tedious initially keeping everyone separate and straight.
So glad I persevered though as when things finally started to click into place for me “In The Dark” was pure magic.
I’m not usually one for reading crime/police drama; watching it on the old screen Yes (I love Vera, Inspector Frost and the like) reading it; not so much, but made an exception for this as it had such an intriguing premise behind it that really captured my attention.
A girl and her child imprisoned in a basement, the disappearance of a young mother that has confounded the local authorities for the last few years, having all the hallmarks of a cold case.
All connected in some form and just waiting for D.I. Fawley and his team to crack wide open.
There were so many twists and unexpected curveballs thrown here that I was in danger of getting whiplash.
I did kinda guess some of the answers here but many others were still a complete mystery.
This was so well done and so intricately woven that I was seriously super impressed.
I thought an especially great touch was the inclusion of all the officer’s everyday mundane lives.
I really appreciated this aspect of “In The Dark” and felt it really brought a human touch to the whole proceedings.
Having a window into the ordinary really gave me a sense of comradery.
Ultimately forging a much stronger individual connection with all the cast.
This was one of the better police/Crime dramas I have experienced.
In conclusion, this was a fast-paced mystery drama that I am happy to give a thumbs up to.
Thank you to Penguin and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC of “In The Dark (DI Adam Fawley, #2)” of which I have reviewed voluntary.

🥀ARC BOOK REVIEW🥀

Release Date-30th April 2018
Genre-Dark Romance
Kindle Edition-280 Pages

BLURB:

One Rose.
One prisoner.
A crime boss.
… and a man determined to overthrow him.

All I wanted was to help women. Free them of their demons. Until he walks in. See, the treatment centre I worked at was my home. The only one I’d known since I was seventeen.

I knew we’d opened a men’s unit. I got the honour of being head tech. He was a criminal. I was warned, prepared, professional. I knew it’d be hard… because of who my father is. I thought I was prepared.

I was anything but prepared.
I was taken.
Treasured.
Twisted by a criminal I swore I would never love.

Two love stories wrapped up in crime. In blood. Delivery.

Trigger Warning: This is a DARK romance. There is language, violence, sexual content and abuse.

Author Note: There IS a cliffhanger in this book, BUT the sequel is coming out in just a couple weeks. Pre-order will be live May 5th

Roses & Thorns by Bry Ann
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

1c887446d0a38a0aae4664a7634ea16b.jpg

This was an enjoyable read that for me was slightly swings and roundabouts in nature.
There were some things here that I loved; while others not so much.
It had an extremely unique style of narration using four separate POV’s rather than the more common one or two and rather than concentrating on just one individual couple here we get the added bonus of two; who each seem to share the spotlight equally.
This was a very unique concept that I haven’t seen used that often.
A two-fer if you will.
The style of storytelling used here I initially found a trifle confusing, it did eventually start to grow on me and while I did feel a tad more connected to Sven and Rose, as the story unfolded Boss and Lacy also started to dig deeper and start to burrow beneath my skin.
So why not a higher star rating?
Well, I did struggle somewhat with the brutality depicted here and my final rating does reflect this slightly.
I do like my dark fiction but for some reason here I had issues wrapping my head around Boss’s actions towards Lacy; his complete disconnect to Lacy as a fellow human being and his single-minded focus on his own personal goals at the expense of Lacy was really difficult to comprehend or even understand.
It wasn’t even that the abuse happened, after all, I went into this with my eyes wide open.
Its that It came at the hands of the man who is essentially her future heart.
And yes I have read this type of thing before in my dark fiction its just Boss seemed to take it to a whole new level of extreme that shocked even me.
This was hardcore abuse that I found difficult to process and I just couldn’t find it in my heart to forgive him for his incomprehensible actions towards Lacey.
He essentially broke her which I found unforgivable.
And no it doesn’t give you a free pass if someone else is inflicted your orders.
There carrying out your wishes so your still ultimately responsible.
In some ways, it’s worse.
I found Sven and Rose while initially starting this a much more likeable proposition.
He even internalises that he couldn’t treat Rose this way.
I also should mention this ends on a cliffhanger which whilst not bothering me just thought I’d pre-warn you.
I think the next Installment is already out anyway.
At its essence “Roses and Thorns” is an interesting dark read that really pushed my boundaries far past what I was comfortable with.
This can be good or bad depending on your perception and mindset as sometimes we need to experience things outside of our compact little boxes.
Unfortunately, I don’t think I will be continuing on here as I’m afraid I definitely reached my hard limit with the treatment of Lacy.
I’m not going to recommend this, either way, it all depends on your own personal dark barometer.
Just be aware going in that this is rather upsetting in places.

❄️BOOK REVIEW❄️

Release Date-26th June 2018
Genre-Sci-Fi Romance
Kindle Edition-187 Pages

The fate of his people rests in her hands.

When the penitentiary ship she’s incarcerated in gets sucked into an anomaly, Kira barely survives the crash onto an alien planet. Along with a handful of survivors, she finds refuge in the fiery city of Caldera alongside its Fire Valos inhabitants. But the sadistic experiments performed on her by the prison’s scientist make the heat intolerable for her. When the opportunity to go to the frozen city of E’Lek presents itself, Kira believes she’ll finally find her new home.

Duke is confused by the strange human female. Like him, she’s cold, made for the icy lands of the Northern Valos. Her resemblance with the Creators and questionable friendships raise their collective suspicions. Yet, only she can save their lost tribes condemned to an eternal slumber. As his heartstone warms for her, Duke is determined to prove to his people that despite appearances, Kira belongs with them… belongs with him.

Iced by Regine Abel
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

teasers3.jpg

This was my first book by this author and while I did somewhat enjoy “Iced” in some places this really wasn’t my complete bag.
I was actually really looking forward to this as the blurb really intrigued me and I do so love me an alien that looks like an alien romance.
So It wasn’t any one thing in particular that turned me off here.
I think it was just an overall combination of issues that didn’t quite gel for me.
Together they just stopped me emotionally connecting which was a shame because as I said earlier this on paper sounded so good.
So this is part of a larger series where each particular instalment is written by a different author.
I know, cool ay; I thought so too.
Each book can be read as a standalone while still being part of a larger picture.
I myself read “Iced” as a standalone and it did work.
I had no problem following along here despite being a newcomer to this alien world.
So Kira and Duke; this is where I had issues I didn’t particularly like Kira I found her rather judgy

ok_040513_joan-judgy.gif

I also struggled with Duke as well the way he was all about second-guessing Kira’s motives and all they were like matching bookends in the judgmental department.
Not very nice personality traits and all, as a result, I actually struggled to feel their connection.
I was just not feeling the love here.

5YMT

Look this wasn’t awful; I just didn’t live up to my initial expectations and also didn’t leave much of an impression on me probably because I didn’t really care that much about Kira or Duke.
I did finish and it did have its moments.
I guess for me this was more of a middle of the road read.
I borrowed “Iced” with my KU subscription.
All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

A modern way of finding love. One deserted island of luxury. Two people. Three out cards. And a whole lot of possibilities.

Melinda takes the advice of her best friend, Chris. She signs up to a new dating service that pairs you statistically to the one you’re supposed to love. Finding it — love that is — using the more conventional methods, has not been a successful venture for Mindy, and with her biological clock ticking, she uses a more desperate method and takes the plunge into a possible happily ever after.

The thing is, when she boards the boat to a secret location, she doesn’t realise the man waiting for her is someone she’s previously met.

Chance encounters occur more frequently than we realise. Being blind to them is part of a bustling world. But, being faced with them can lead to a hilarious three weeks between two opposites who might just attract.

OMG this book was bloody hilarious; I laughed till I had to cross my legs and run to the loo (you’ll get this if you have kids like me)
My other half thought I was losing the plot and kept giving me concerned glances with the strange noises that were coming from my corner of the lounge.
I can honestly say it’s been a while since ive found a story so bloody funny.
“That Guy” should seriously come with a disclaimer; beware danger of serious injury through laughter.
Ive previously read this author’s “Game Of Life Series” which I adored by the way.
This was so different and definitely shows this author’s complete diversity as she switched genres so seamlessly and I enjoyed this just as much as past reads despite them being so different.
This is the story of Melinda and Arlie and the trials and tribulations they traversed on their journey to coupledom; It wasn’t smooth or completely rock free but it was certainly honest and unique.
I also want to put out there how much I adored Mindy’s bestie, Chris.
In my opinion, everyone needs a Chris and for me, he really stole the show; he was the man.
This was a fabulously funny romp that I generally appreciated; loved it so much.

He conquers her, body and soul.
Makarios of Kronos is a rebel, a smuggler who reports to no one, not even those on Rogue 5. But one betrayal sends him to a Coalition brig, and to a fate worse than death—capture by the Hive. He escapes but exchanges one prison for another. He now lives on the Colony, contaminated and deemed a risk. He’ll do anything to regain his freedom, including agree to a bargain with a beautiful, cunning warrior with secrets of her own.

Gwendolyn Fernandez volunteered to defend Earth from the Hive menace. For four years, she was a valued member of Coalition ReCon, until the Hive caught up with her, and a strange Nexus creature took special interest in her integration.

Gwen escaped with super-human strength and a will to live that cannot be broken, until the governor of the Colony demands she choose a mate. A bargain with Makarios seems so simple until he conquers her in a way no other has—body and soul—yet the Hive Nexus who wanted her for himself won’t take no for an answer.

Really enjoyed “Rogue Cyborg” for some reason I could have sworn I had already read this author before; my bad, I so haven’t weird that as I was convinced I had mmm strange one that.

tenor.gif

Well anyway, nope this is definitely a new author for me but one I would definitely read again.
This was book 6 in the Interstellar Brides series but I read it as a standalone and had no issues following along with the current storyline.
Everything is fairly self-explanatory here and it was really easy to get lost in this rich well-developed sci-fi story.
I do so love me a good alien romance and “Rogue Cyborg” delivered in spades.
It was fast paced well imagined and super sexy.
I adored both Mak and Gwen they made such a fabulous couple and I was rooting for them all the way here.
This was told in dual POV my favourite and was so smokin hot I needed a bucket of the cold stuff to extinguish the burn.
This had a great secondary cast and if you have read the previous books in this series prepare to get re-acquainted to some past staring players.
All in all, this was a fun read that totally captured my imagination and If you like a bit of the old Sci-Fi romance like myself then this one will probably be your flavour.
This gets a definite seal of approval from moi.

One woman on the run. Four dangerously sexy bodyguards. And a war
brewing that will change the shifter world forever…

I’m living on borrowed time, fighting
for survival against a deadly new virus that has no cure and a cult doing its
best to brainwash me. But when a mysterious note shows up on my windowsill one
night, its chilling message–Run, Wren–launches me out of the frying pan and
into the fire.

Within hours, everything I thought I knew about my life, my family, and my
origins is obliterated, and I’m racking up enemies at an alarming rate. Between
the cult I’ve just escaped, a violent shifter faction out for my blood, and an
ancient evil who eats “chosen ones” like me for breakfast, my last
hope is to join forces with four dangerous-looking men who claim they were sent
to guard my life.

Luke, a werewolf with a rap sheet. Creedence, a lynx shifter who never met a
mark he couldn’t con. Kite, a bear kin with a mean right hook and heart of
gold. And Dust, my childhood best friend and dude voted least likely to be a
secret shape-shifting griffin.

But are these men really what they seem?

Or are my alpha guardians hiding a secret agenda of their own?

I’m not sure, but one thing is for certain—choosing the right allies will mean
the difference between life and death. For me, and everyone I love.

UNLEASHED is book one in the Dark Moon Shifter’s series. It is a true reverse
harem featuring one woman and her four mates.

 

Excerpt

Kite’s breath rushes out, his shoulders sagging with a relief that makes me feel like I’ve done something more important than answer a question. “Good. Keep trusting me, bird girl, and I’m going to show you a whole new world. A world where you can be the powerhouse you are on the inside.”
The backs of my eyes begin to sting, but I’m smiling when I say, “There’s no cure, Kite. I might never go back into remission, let alone get better.”
He pauses, seeming to debate something silently before he whispers, “But then again, you might.” Before I can assure him that hope is a lost cause in this case, he leans down and gently presses his lips to mine and I am the one who’s lost.
My eyes slide closed as my heart lights up, each warm, sweet brush of his lips against mine making my body fill with magic. Electricity floods my nerve endings and my pulse races so fast I know I would fall over if Kite let me go. But he doesn’t let me go, he wraps me up in his big strong arms, hugging me close as he lifts me off my feet, bringing our lips onto a level playing field as he takes charge of holding us both steady. 
With a soft sob of gratitude for this kiss, this miracle, this moment of feeling like the luckiest girl in Seattle, I wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him with everything in me, not caring if I use up all the energy I’ll need to get home. 
I’m always so careful—I’ve had to be in order to keep working and having some semblance of a normal life long after most people with my condition would have taken to their beds for good—but I don’t want to be careful right now. I want to be alive and wanted and on fire. I want to burn with this man who makes me hungry in a way I’ve never experienced before. 
In just a few moments, Kite banishes every teenage kiss and lukewarm make-out session from my early twenties from my memory, leaving nothing but his smoky, sexy taste in my mouth and his campfire and almond scent swirling through my head.

Depredation by Natalie Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

As per usual this author managed to deliver a completely corrupt tale filled with depravity and vicious immoral behaviour.
This author is the master of this type of fiction managing to deliver such dissolute debased conduct while still also somehow hooking the reader like a fish on a line.
You so want to look away in horrific denial but It’s almost like you just have to watch so great is the compulsion and magnetism of the scene set before you.
The basic premise here is the kidnapping and incarceration of young Harper and the trials and tribulations she has to endure to escape from a nightmare at the sadistic hands of her kidnapper J.
She is not the first visitor to J’s basement prison but she’s determined to be his last.
Kept in squalor and filth by her Jailor Harper is prepared to do whatever it takes to survive her abominable ordeal.
Told from two points of view Harper and her captor this is a dark tale of extraordinary extremities and the resilience of the human spirit and psyche.
I also really adored the karmic justice this deviant narrative imparted it left me with a feeling of deep satisfaction and an almost gratification for the fate it eventually delivered to those deserving of such torments and tortures.
The only reason I haven’t scored this higher is that I would have myself liked a slightly more drawn-out process with some added closure when it came to the finish here.
It seemed to end rather abruptly which I was not a big fan of.
But as usual, a fabulously unique endeavour that certainly stand out in its genre.
Oh and I should probably mention as well that this is not a romance; nope not at all, if I had to classify it I would say erotic horror is probably the closest term to describe this.
Thank you to the author for providing me with an ARC of ”
Depredation: A Dark Erotica” of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions are entirely my own.

She has a penchant for writing about villainous immoral men, crazed anti-heroines, and tends to deviate away from traditional HEAs.She likes chocolate, Netflix, and Prickly Pear Margaritas.

When she isn’t writing she’s hanging out in the sunshine state with her husband, their three boys, and her pitbull named Lulu.

You can find Natalie on Social Media! Natalie Bennett is your average socially awkward author that turns her spontaneous head ramblings into stories.
