/ ARC Book Review / Defied (Blood Duet #2) / Maria Luis / Release Blitz /

I am both a sinner and a saint, but I bleed
vengeance.
 
For years, I’ve lived in the grey… until her.
 
Avery Washington didn’t belong in the shadows,
but I dragged her into the darkness anyway.
 
One kiss, and I would stop at nothing to
possess her.
 
One caress, and my need to destroy wavered.
 
Our attraction was poison and pleasure.
 
They say the devil recognizes his own, but I
never saw Avery coming.
 
She’s determined to light the matchsticks, and
I can’t resist going down in flames…

He was the worst she ever had, so why can’t she get him out of her head?

Francisca Rivera— call her Frannie, please— says what she means and takes what she wants. Six months ago, all it took was one look at James, the gorgeous, bearded man pouring drinks at her favorite bar, and she had to have him in her bed. 

To say she had been disappointed would be the biggest understatement in the history of all understatements. James was a no good, very bad lay.

But there is just something about James’ quiet, steady manner and the way he’s always watching her at the bar— like she’s something special— that keeps her wanting.

Frannie is wild and free with an aversion to relationships. James is soft-spoken and shy with a tendency to be reclusive. Can two opposites meet somewhere in the middle and take a second chance at their first time?

But even in isolated places… there are people dying to take you down.
Duke and Shanna must decide if they are going to fight for their love or watch it crash and burn when both of them are forced to make choices they can’t come back from.

How far would you go for love?

Duke…

I stopped in on a whim to see the old dive bar where my old man used to spend his days–getting drunk with his boys from the MC. But when I walked in and saw her… I knew I would be back and not just for another round, but to make Shanna mine.
She’s asking for trouble teasing me the way that she does.
She’s made a mistake.
A bad one.

She’s my angel, but I’m her devil.
Together we’re gonna burn. (

Raven Elliot blasts
into town like a wrecking ball—striking and devastating.

With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust.
 
“Is this seat
taken?”

I could close my
eyes and let her voice wrap around me like a lover’s caress.
But this isn’t that kind of story.
And I’m sure as hell not that kind of man.

She hovers in my
space, batting her lashes and smiling shyly.
The glimmer in her sapphire eyes is a promise of peace.
But I’m not falling for it.
And Raven doesn’t take the hint.

What starts as a
battle of wills, explodes into a turf war.
She stands directly in my path everywhere I turn.
No matter how hard I shove, she won’t budge.
Raven seems dead set on driving me insane.
But I was here first.
And I’m not going down easy.

After all, no one
ever taught me how to treat a lady.

Until now…

+Blood Flows Deep+

Fourteen-thousand years ago, I locked away my powers.
The loss of one woman took everything from me. I made a deal to wait. To sacrifice an innocent that would be born in the far future to bring my beloved back.
Then I laid eyes on that girl . . . and everything I thought I knew got shredded to shit.
She’s reawakened the monster in me.
The madness.
The hunger.
The creature that demands a taste of her flesh.
Even worse, for the first time in my long, brutal existence, the monster is demanding her blood.
I’ve mated to my victim.
I’ll have no choice but to keep my promise. I have to sacrifice her. And the moment I do . . .
We’re both going to die.

+Blood Stained Tranquility+

Within the red and black shadows of doom, all I see are my victims. The sinners I need to destroy.
And her.
Always her.
I want to despise her for what her past did to me. A single look into her eyes and the creature trapped inside me broke free.
You see, I’m a fucking sham. A pretender. I wasn’t born as Zeniel, God of Tranquility.
I was born as Mavrak, the war demon God of Vengeance.
He killed millions across the dimensions once.
To avenge and protect her, he’ll destroy millions once again.
For her, I’ll let my powers of Tranquility die in a maelstrom of blood . . .
Even if it means killing everyone else that I love.

/ARC Book Review / Firsts / C.L. Matthews/

She’s forbidden.
Too young, too pure, and not mine.
I’ll break all the rules to be with her.
She belongs to me, even if she doesn’t know it yet.

He’s taboo.
Too old, too experienced, and my stepfather.
I’ll cross every line to be with him.
He’s not mine, and never will be.

It’s not about the danger of what’s forbidden,
it’s about the pleasure we get from it.

All consequences be damned.
