/ ARC-Book Review / Innocent Eyes / Charlotte E. Hart / Rachel De Lune /

“If he’s gross, I’m bailing.”
That’s what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?
He was charming. Beautiful. God’s finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I’d never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.
But she didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed.
And now Quinn Cane wants his money’s worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.

“A debt needs to be paid.”
The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes. Still, the debt will be paid either way.
She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirty girl.
Pure. Innocent. Mine.
Then she whispered my damned name and invaded my world, changing its reasoning.
She wasn’t meant to break the rules. But she rolled my dice and won.

Shame. Forgiveness. Dark. Erotic. Romance.
This book is intended for mature audiences. 18+ only.

/ ARC-Book Review / Up in Smoke (King #8) / by T.M. Frazier /

A King Series Novel.

I’m a man without a conscience.
I deal in murder and mayhem.
I’m the best at what I do.
Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job.
A means to flush her father out of hiding.
Simple.
Except there isn’t anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she’s keeping.
She’s stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins.
She’s cocaine with legs. A f*cking addiction that makes me question things I’ve never questioned before. Want things I’ve never wanted before.
I might have her, but she isn’t mine to keep.
If her father doesn’t show his face, she will be mine.
To KILL.

/ ARC-Book Review / Chased /by Clarissa Wild /

She’s innocent and blind.
Perfect for all my wicked needs.
Perfect to prove just how far I’m willing to go.
But there’s just one problem …
I’m falling for her. Deep. Hard. Fast.
Even though I’m the bad guy. The man who keeps her locked away.
I’ll do anything to make her stay.
One thing’s for sure … She will be mine.

/ Book-Review / End of Eden (Se7en Sinners #2) / S.L. Jennings /

I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I thought I had been living it all these years on Earth—abandoned, forgotten, and left with a dangerous secret that not only made me the Se7en’s #1 target but also turned me into a deadly weapon, a threat to every human in my path.
I was wrong.

In order to survive Lucifer’s plans for me, and his unquenchable thirst for more power, I have to surrender my humanity. I have to lose a part of myself in order to find my way back to him.
Back to the demon who saved me, only to break me.
Back to Legion.

But even supreme evil has its limits, and the real foes never show their devastatingly beautiful faces.
Forget fire and brimstone. They aren’t shit compared to what’s coming.

Centuries-old bonds will be broken. Unlikely alliances will be forged. And innocent blood will be spilled. Blood that will stain my hands for the rest of my mortal days.

I thought I knew what Hell was like.
I was wrong.
Hell is coming.
Hell is just the beginning.

🍁BOOK-REVIEW🍁

Release Date-11th August 2016
Genre-Paranormal Romance
Kindle Edition-355 Pages

Twenty-two years ago, I was cut from a cold, sodden womb, and cradled in the filth and poverty of Chicago’s concrete arms. Statistically, I wasn’t supposed to survive these streets past the age of eighteen.

Fate had a different plan.

I was bred for one purpose and one purpose only: to unleash death and destruction on my world.

My thoughts are power.

My words are weapons.

Evil created me then grace tried to save me. But first… they tried to kill me.
They call themselves the Se7en. They are sin and salvation, and everything we’ve feared from the beginning of time. And their leader is the deadliest of them all.

He doesn’t lose.

He doesn’t compromise.

And most importantly, he doesn’t distract himself with mortal weakness.

Not until me.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he told me when he took me as his prisoner.

Kill one to save a million.

That’s what he’s been trying to tell himself ever since he took me into his arms.

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟STARS
I have been meaning to get around to this series for a while.
Previously reading The Dark/Light books by this author and loving them Born Sinner (Se7en Sinners, #1) by S.L. Jennings has been on my TBR pile for quite some time.
And while this didn’t draw me in initially quite as quickly as previous books I have read by this author I did get there in the end.
And when I did fall I was captivated by this vividly portrayed world.
Born Sinner tells the story of the seven.
Seven demons trying to redeem themselves by whatever means necessary, led by their leader “L” Legion.
Who can I just say is totally manalicious and super bad ass.

“Because I once was seraphim,” he pronounces, his all-commanding tone rumbling the floor beneath my socked feet. A blast of sweltering heat radiates around his entire frame, forcing me back. “But now… I… Am… Legion.”

There mission to stop the called, basically like Lucifers sleeper cells, dormant till activated to do horrific actions and “Eden” is one such cell.
“Kill one to save a million” is the motto they live by and how they justify their actions.
But Eden is something more and as L does a complete 360 and decides he needs to protect her maybe at first on account of the angel “Adriel” he senses inside her.
“Adriel” his first love who he fell from heaven for.
But also because he finds himself completely captivated by the enigma that is Eden.

“Because from the first moment I saw you—through the dingy window of that store, your headphones on, oblivious to the dangers right outside the door—I knew that I would die for you. So please…live for me. Just for a little while longer.”

So this book had everything a damaged anti-hero and one stubborn as hell heroine that’s ready to fight her feeling to the bitter end.
Drama, angst and betrayal from where you expect it least.
Just when you think you know where this is going it changes directions on you and scrambles your thought process once more.
And it has Angels and Demons, So, Man whats not to love here.
I absolutely fell hook line and sinker for our L, he was such a damaged but deep individual and I loved how hard he fell for Eden willing to do whatever it takes to protect her and keep her safe.

“When you find something worth living for, you won’t hesitate to die for it.” A small, sad smile rests upon his lips. “We’re all dead, firecracker, yet no one really dies. Don’t worry. I’ll make my way back to you.” “You promise?” I whisper. “Even if I have to crawl my way out from the depths of Hell, I’ll never leave you. Not again.”

Sigh so heart-thumpingly swoony.

Eden was that bit more difficult to get a handle on, she was a product of her upbringing and had clawed her way to adulthood with a tenuous hold on life.
While I admired her resilience and ability to adapt like a chameleon I also felt she was her own worse enemy on a course of self-sabotage she fought every good thing that came her way, I believe she had sentenced and judged herself to a solitary existence a long time past.
The secondary characters in this series were amazing, I adored them all especially the seven.
I also loved the added bonus of revisiting the Skotos family from Light/dark series that was a lovely touch and I loved that this also occupied the same world.
Only a couple issues here that bothered me and whilst this didn’t dampen my enjoyment here I thought I would just flag them for others.
I thought Legion went from Mr nasty to Mr nice without explanation and I did find this a bit odd.
There was no real explanation for his big turnaround and the second considering L tells Eden he was captivated with her from the very beginning I don’t get the original overall animosity he directed at her when taking her captive.
But as I said no biggie I still really enjoyed this, I was just slightly puzzled by these two facts.
So Born Sinner ended on a big Cliffhanger, like a real I need the next book right now cliffy.
And I was super, super shocked here, didn’t see that one coming at all.

So to conclude this was a fantastic gripping read with fantastic world building and an engaging storyline that I really enjoyed and highly recommend.

/ ARC-Book Review/ Three Breaths (The Game of Life #3) / By Belle Brooks /

“The Wolf has played me for a fool.”

I’ve no clue who is hunting me, but he demands I complete his tests. I fear if I can’t figure out his identity, he’ll kill me just like he said.

His eyes were blue the last time I looked into them, but now when he glares at me they’re green. Is the Wolf playing dress up? Or are there two monsters who have stolen me?

“Did you think I’d make this easy for you, Red? Are you ready to play again?” – The Wolf

I want out of this nightmare, and the only way to do that is to win.

I need to win.

🌾Book-Review🌾Battle for Love (War of Hearts 0.5)🌾by Julia Sykes🌾

I don’t deserve her: the sweet, perfect angel with the sweet, perfect life.

She doesn’t know anything about my violent past. But if I could just touch her, taste her, then maybe I could pretend her perfect world could be mine, too.

Note: Battle for Love is the prequel to War of Hearts.

🏍ARC-Book Review🏍Joyride (Beautiful Biker #2)🏍by D.D. Prince🏍

Beautiful Biker book 2. The ride continues…
Rider Valentine’s Story.

Rider Valentine’s family, all members of the Dominion Brotherhood MC, opened up a new charter and three businesses in a new town. The Wyld Jackals MC do not want them there and are determined to make that point in a variety of violent ways, including using Dominion Brotherhood women to do so.

Rider has never tied himself to just one woman. But, when a certain gorgeous girl he’s spent some time with is suddenly in danger of being the Jackals’ next target, things change.

Jenna Murdoch has always tried to be a good-time girl, but guarding her heart because heartache is not a good time. Something about Rider makes her see potential and what could be. Can she trust letting her guard down with a good-time guy who seems to like playing games with her heart?

There are sexual assault accusations and Rider has an explanation, but there’s some pretty damning evidence against him, and Jenna decides she’s not interested in playing his games.

Despite Jenna trying to retreat, Rider is determined to keep her safe from the Jackals by any means necessary, even if it includes handcuffing her to his bed.

How hard will Jenna make him work to win her over? Can Jenna overcome the things she knows, the things she saw? Can she trust him? And will Rider simply lose interest once the threat is neutralized?

The beautiful biker series contains standalone but connected and overlapping stories. Each book focuses on a different couple. Reading in order will provide the best reading experience.

🎯Book Review🎯 Of A Harmless Little Ruse🎯(Harmless, #2)🎯 by Meli Raine🎯

She has no idea what she’s doing. Loose cannons never hit their targets.

And they take out plenty of collateral damage.

Four years ago Lindsay experienced the unspeakable right before me, and I couldn’t stop them.

But that’s all changed now.

When her father, Senator Bosworth, contacted me to ask — demand — that I protect her, it was a second chance. A shot at redemption.

An opportunity to right an unspeakable wrong.

Controlling Lindsay as she seeks her revenge on the monsters who hurt her won’t be hard.

Containing my own out-of-control feelings for Lindsay and keeping up this ruse of cold-blooded distance will be.

Even harder than admitting to her what really happened that night four years ago.

It turns out I don’t have to, though.

Someone else did it for me.

And I’ll make sure they regret it.

A Harmless Little Ruse is the second book in this political thriller/romantic suspense trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine, and is entirely from Drew’s perspective. (less)
