A post-apocalyptic romance.

The Ghoul Lords threaten the extermination of all humankind and much of our world has been destroyed. There will be love, death, and dirty, messy sex among the ruins.

A brutal act by Cyn tore apart the lovers and now she must make amends. She’s going to need her well-muscled beaster males to rein her in, pin her down, and make sure she shoots in the right direction.

Gather your weapons. It’s time to descend to Ground Level and find Big Daddy, the research vehicle lost during the invasion. Within must lie the truth of the Maelstrom experiment.

What she and the beasters were created from will determine the fate of our world.

MY REVIEW

Rutger by Cari Silverwood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

loved this one just so much this series really is a great read that I recommend highly especially if you like some sizzle with your sci-fi. So we start this just after the events of the previous book and that dramatic fallout. Cyn is on trial for her actions and it isn’t looking good for her at all. On top of all that Vargr is not a happy beaster, he is feeling massively betrayed and hurt by Cyn actually shooting him and he’s holding a big fat grudge. Luckily Rutger is there to pick up the slack in that department especially since the Lure is hovering just offside ready to whisper in Cyn’s ear, so thank god for Rutger is all I can say. This story sees a ragtag crew along with Rutger Vargr and Cyn head out to locate Big Daddy hoping to discover more about there original origins to help assist them in there fight against the Ghoul Lords. So just like the previous book the world-building and imagination expanded creating this diverse post-apocalyptic backdrop was excellent. Fast-paced and so original this managed to keep me glued throughout. There is just the right balance here between the action, the emotional and the erotic and this one definitely brought along the heat factor, in fact, the thermostat was cranked right up to the maximum with this. We get to know Rutger so much better here and I now feel equally connected to all three bond-mates, I feel they now work together collectively as a unit and seem to have taken their trio to a whole new level. Got to say I am totally adoring the dominant control vibe we have here the forced fantasy vibe is so bloody hot. You are most definitely going to need a cold shower after reading this. So I loved where this eventually took us and also that end reveal really explained a lot. This author has managed to construct a fabulously complex world without massive info-dump, not an easy task at all. Really looking forward to the concluding part of this a big thumbs up from my camp.

I voluntary reviewed a copy of Rutger (Beast Horde #2).

I pulled my stranger from the river. Breathed life into his lungs.

I saved him in this arctic tundra. Yet he looks at me like a meal. Touches me like I’m his greatest temptation.

Tells me he desires my body to use in a way I’ve never offered myself before.

Storm raging outside my cabin, there is little to do to escape him. Little chance I might survive this encounter unscathed.

He wants life. My life. And I have no choice but to offer it.

And I don’t harbor a single regret.

MY REVIEW

A Night by my Fire by Addison Cain
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a novella-length read one that I really enjoyed. It is the story of River and Stephen, the former a woman living alone isolated out in the wilderness away from civilisation and the latter a stone-cold assassin who has been betrayed and left for dead by his former employer. When River rescues Stephen from the water half dead their paths collide. stranded together this hard man needs River for his very survival. Stephen is cold analytical and extremely literal, River is his opposite hot-headed and unlike anything, he has ever known from his former life. Slowly he becomes fascinated with the wild woman he is currently playing house with and when these two forces of nature finally collide it was epic. This may have been short but it still had all the feels and the unfolding story had no trouble capturing and retaining my attention throughout. Would adore a sequel to this as the ending was just so bittersweet, now that really would make my day as this feels like there’s still more to River and Stephen’s story.

Genre-Paranormal Romance-
Kindle Edition-211 Pages

USA Today Bestselling Author, Jordan Marie, writing as J. Marie, brings you a brand-new paranormal series full of Alpha males, strong heroines and where everything is not what its seems on the surface.

ELEVEN

I’ve spent my entire life being trapped and studied like the lab rat I was created to be. Tortured, prodded, abused, I dreamed of freedom but didn’t believe I would truly find it.

I never thought my chance of getting away would come in the form of a sweet, little girl with secrets of her own.

ETTIE

I could hear his screams late at night when I was supposed to be sleeping. Each one of them marked me, scarring me on the inside, where no one could see… but me. I hid my secrets, knowing what I was doing could get me in trouble. I only knew that I had to help him. I loved him, even if I was too young to have him. I knew in my heart that someday he would be mine and I would be his. I helped set him free, my beautiful soldier with the smouldering brown eyes and a crooked smile. But, when I needed him, he was nowhere to be found. Now, he’s back, but dreams to a child are simplistic.

Things are different when you’re a woman and the man you’re in love with, have always been in love with, holds the power to completely destroy you.

Welcome to the world of the Eternals. Supernatural beings finding their way in a world they don’t belong to, yet have no choice but to live in. The only thing that might make it tolerable is one truth.
Somewhere out there, every single one of them has a true mate. Now, they won’t stop until they find them. Who knows? Maybe it could be you.

MY REVIEW

Eleven by J. Marie
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This one wasn’t really my thing, it was basically an ok read but I had a ton of issues with a lot of what happened spoiling my enjoyment and I don’t think I will be reading book two so this is really the end of the line for me. So as I said essentially this was OK and the idea behind the story I actually thought was imaginative it was the execution of this and the characters themselves I struggled with. So firstly the characters themselves seemed really immature not the whole brooding alpha male badass heroine vibe I was reaching for more like a couple of teenagers. The Hero himself Eleven/Leo basically left poor Ettie to her fate after she helped them all escape from the labs. This is a girl who had been speaking in his head for years keeping him sane and instead of going back for her after recovering from his own injuries he abandons her mainly because he doesn’t want to be recaptured. Somebody else has to point out to him that the radio silence in his head might be the fact she’s actually dead and this was five years later, he then decides to go look for her like FIVE YEARS LATER!!! talk about too little too late dude and newsflash you don’t get a free pass for feeling guilty about it either. I also didn’t understand why Ettie was so resistant to the mate bond, I mean ignore the way he had abandoned her she was over that quite swiftly even if I wasn’t, it was her reasons for resisting that connection that didn’t really make a whole lot of sense to me. She was up in arms mainly because she didn’t want a bond that forced him to care against his will but she already knew he cared so it seemed a tad stupid and pointless: add in Leos reasons for not drinking from Ettie when he was most definitely going to die if he didn’t and was it really that important like kicking the bucket for important, I think not. Also, Endy and Jacob whats with that: their overall prejudice against the blood-drinkers of the group was totally unexpected and considering the group’s collective origins I just can’t see them being that bigoted. Despite their differences, they’re still connected and have been all there lives it just doesn’t make any real sense that they would feel this way towards each other and whats with Ettie crying a river for her mother I just can’t see it myself the woman nearly killed her. Then there’s the ending it was just so anti-climatic all that build up and then over in a quick predictable flash. Despite the above, there were things here that redeemed this slightly for me it wasn’t all on the down. This in itself was quite an easy uncomplicated read with a dash of insta-love if that’s your thing. I also loved how protective and Possessive Leo could get over Ettie ( after His Ungratefulness actually retrieved her an all in case your wondering). I also really liked Seven or Stark as he named himself, in fact, I would say he was my favourite character here.

So yeh Mixed bag from me folks: if you like a less angsty more romantic type read then this may be a fit for you, unfortunately, this wasn’t my bag.

Seven Days by Alex Lake
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So while walking to her cousin’s house fifteen-year-old Maggie is kidnapped and kept locked in a basement. Her kidnapper has no name just the man, he gets her pregnant allowing her to keep her child until there third birthday when he then removes them from her care. Maggie’s third son Leo is approaching his third birthday and she knows if she doesn’t find a way to free them both history will again repeat. So this recounts back from when Maggie is first abducted all the way up to the present day flipping back and forth between the two timeframes. It was told from numerous Pov’s so you really get a sense of where everyone is at. This also showcased the aftermath and overall effect on maggies, immediate family, after she is taken and it was truly heartbreaking to realise just how near she was all this time. All the small undetected clues that were screaming out but were undiscovered so sad. I didn’t enjoy this quite as much as my previous read by this author but it was still a solid offering. slightly farfetched at times and I felt it did go on a bit too long and could have done with some condensing, Still, this was a suspenseful thriller that I did enjoy.

MY REVIEW

Kiss Me With Lies by S.M. Soto
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The first-ever thing I have read by this author and my god what a fabulous ride this was. The first in a romantic suspense duet this was such a twisty and turbulent experience. I felt so many contradicting emotions both during and after this angry, sad, confused my heart and head fighting a constant battle with what I believed or what might actually be. Even when the characters here managed to frustrate me so much I felt like screaming at them I still was rooting for them all the same. Makenzie, I loved her just so much she was a trifle batshit but who could blame her considering. She wasn’t the most logical tool in the box but she had such heart in everything she did even if her decisions and spy-skills sucked hairy balls. I also loved Baz at least when he wasn’t behaving like a tool I adored how dirty and emotional his and Makenzie’s encounters were, His Dirty-girl nickname for her was just so hot. These two had so much chemistry they could start a forest fire together they really did sizzle. This is a story of secrets ones that are hidden and buried so deep an industrial size shovel may be needed just to uncover them. But no matter what she has to do including using Baz to uncover the truth our girl is determined to succeed and get vengeance for her sister’s life cut short. Such a page-turner I couldn’t put this down and I read in one entire sitting I was absolutely transfixed from the moment I picked this up and what a finale: I need the next part of this like yesterday. I have no idea what’s going to go down in the concluding part of this but can’t bloody wait. This is a five-star read all the way and I highly recommend this twisty suspenseful story. This one gets a huge thumbs up from me.

MY REVIEW

Magpie by Sophie Draper
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Claire and Duncan’s marriage is in trouble, from the outside it looks like they have it all but the reality itself is far different with Duncans growing coldness and numerous infidelities seeming to be a route cause of a lot of the problems between them. Her eighteen-year-old son through not diagnosed definitely has an ASD and his additional needs have also piled on the pressure on top of what is already a pressure cooker just waiting to explode. So this narrates the events in a before and after fashion from both Claire and Duncans POV. This did keep me turning the pages to discover the truth and I did enjoy the mysterious obscurity of it all as I pieced the puzzle together. I must confess I did guess the twist so the ending here didn’t really come as a surprise to me but some of the whats and whys were news. I also realised the further I read that the same story could be interpreted differently depending on who you actually listened to and that this actually was a lot of shades rather than the black and white like I originally thought. I could kind of see how events had come to pass the way they had, of course, I am in no way excusing it just understanding how they had come to be at the stalement they now were. Guilt and blame can rot the strongest of foundations and Duncan’s games are almost like a crutch he uses to cope. So for me, this was a bit repetitive and also a tad slow. The narrative at times was also overly descriptive and somewhat confusing though it did set a great spooky atmosphere. I was also left feeling somewhat sad and melancholy after finishing. One last thought I really liked the inclusion of the son Joe in this: my own son has Aspergers and I really could appreciate a lot of similarities between them. My son is as obsessive in his interests as Joe was here, he also extremely literal so I got that also. I did have a few issues with this but it was still an interesting experience.

A Midwinter Promise by Sunday Times top ten bestselling author Lulu Taylor, is a dramatic story of loss, grief and the legacy of secrets.

‘Don’t you just want to grab this, switch off the phone and curl up on the sofa? Winter bliss from Lulu Taylor’ Veronica Henry

MY REVIEW

A Midwinter Promise by Lulu Taylor
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Told from two timeframes the past and the present. In the present, we have Alex and Johnnie siblings struggling with many things in there average day to day lives. When their father David has a stroke and their stepmother Sally summons them to his bedside the past and present for them collide as both especially Johnnie are dealing with the recursions of a lifetime of resentments and unspoken hurts. The catalyst of there fathers potential passing brings forth all these hidden feelings bringing them all clawing to the forefront. Also surfacing are hidden questions they both have regarding there mother Julia’s death when they were children and just what there father’s and sally’s role in it was all those years ago. So In the past, we get to focus on Julia herself, her early childhood and upbringing at Tawray and her exposure to her mother’s miscarriages and her eventual death contributing to her daughter’s later fragility and downward spiral. We get to experience alongside Julia her falling in love with her future husband David a handsome naval officer in service to the palace, her love for her children and also her downward despair. I was fascinated by the contrast in regards to Julia’s David compared with Sally’s they just seemed poles apart and at times didn’t even seem like the same individual. I came to the conclusion early on that after the chaos and whirlwind that was Julia David just needed a calm and stable hand and this is what Sally brought to the table. Julia was his everything, the love of his life, his light and after she was gone Sally was comforting and uncomplicated and just easier. I also felt so much emotion for Julia and surprisingly as time went along Sally although she seemed like the villain of the piece here I couldn’t help thinking she deserved some unconditional love herself here instead of settling for the crumbs. I was so very angry with David and how he dealt after Julia’s death and I detested Mundo with a passion. At its heart, this was a story focusing on family dynamics and relationships and the repercussions of mental illness. But it was also rather depressing and I was just left feeling rather sad and deflated by the whole sorry saga.

I went camping once. Two hours later, I was checked into a Holiday Inn, lying on a table and getting massaged by a muscular Swedish man named Sven. If I can’t survive on a campground, how can I survive by myself on an alien planet? And that’s exactly where I am. The flowers are as big as cars, the bugs as big as dogs, and there’s no Holiday Inn in sight. Oh, and did I forget to mention…there are freaking dinosaurs here! I would have been their lunch if it wasn’t for Turic, my blue alien saviour. He’s no Sven but he has other ways to please me…

And this muscular alien with the heavenly tongue is making this harsh alien planet feel like home.

Standalone. HEA. No Cliffhanger.

Barbarian by Kim Fox
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

So I accidentally managed to start rereading this after downloading on kindle unlimited again and as I gave it a second go through and appreciated this so much more this second time around so I am upping my rating slightly. With a three-year gap between maybe, I’m just more attuned to embracing all that is weird and wonderful and this certainly has that in absolute spades no contest. So brief recap Avery and her friend are kidnapped from a movie theatre (or cinema if your British like me) by aliens and not liking their current fate manage to hijack the spacecraft and with the assistance of an onboard robot Tom land it on the planet Zandipor. Here they get chased by a vicious scary T-Rex fall into a dangerous raging river and get separated from each other. Avery is then rescued from her dire fate by a massive brawny and blue alien native called Turic. So this was a really funny one that doesn’t take itself to seriously, it was all very tongue in cheek almost slapstick at times and a whole lot of fun. The Blue aliens are not the brightest bunch and that includes Turic. But though he may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer he was extremely sweet, very enthusiastic to one and all, especially when discovering Avery’s Culip and his heart was in the right place.

This was surprisingly enjoyable but silly and definitely non-serious.

She’s just trying to get home so she can hole up with her Merlot and pretend none of this rubbish is happening. Christmas Trees? Bah Humbug. It’s just a myth. A myth that controls the people and makes them think religion is worthwhile. It isn’t, and even if it was she wouldn’t deserve niceties after what she’s done. But then a dark and handsome stranger arrives in the snow, telling her he’s a gift and that he’s here to help. She doesn’t need help. And what gift has flames in his eyes and moves through shadow like he does, anyway?

Christmas Gifts: An Indecency Suites Festive Treat by Anabella Roscoff
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another fabulous edition to the indecency Suites novella’s and this one encompasses the whole spirit of the festive season with a Christmas gift in the form of one Gables Rhyme. So Jude tinkler gets an unexpected gift from above on Christmas Eve turning her night into one to remember. Healing her in the one way he excels at but with the assistance of something bigger than them both. This was kinky and hot and sensual but also slightly mysterious and obscure. Although short this had all the connection and all the feels a much softer story than some of the previous ones but just as emotive. An erotic tale with lots of Christmas healing this was another great addition to the ongoing series.

MY REVIEW

Play Me by Ker Dukey
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Quinn has always had unusual urges but a traumatic incident at college changed everything for her. Now shes ready to explore her wants and needs further and she asks Joshua the sexy owner of Hush to assist her in making her fantasies a reality. Hush is a club that caters to certain fantasies in a safe consensual way and when he realises just what Quinn wants Joshua knows he will be the one that will fulfil those needs for her. But first, he needs to build trust between them both especially considering the suspicions he has over her past. It wasn’t really a dark read at all and I found the interaction between Quinn and Joshua to be extremely bloody hot. I was definitely in need of a cold dunking after finishing this let me tell you. As the two spend time together outside the bedroom as well as in it they realise just how aligned their kinks are and start to fall deep for each other. This really was a very sweet and romantic read with all the feels I do so love a man who is unafraid to express just how he feels without fighting it ever so refreshing. There was a small bit of danger near the end thrown in but it only played a small part in the ongoing narrative i think it was mainly there to showcase some closure. I also adored that epilogue so heartwarming.

This was a quick easy read that left me with a lovely warm feeling really enjoyed this one very much.
