/ ARC Book Review / Outcasts (Badlands #3) / Natalie Bennett /

*Grimm*
Pariah.
Dark Messiah.
Harbinger of death.

My reputation has always preceded me.

I’m a brother to the queen of the Badlands.

I’m one of the few confidants to her fiancé–the devil himself.

And those whispered rumors that I’m a silent killer, a true harvester of souls?

They’re true.

People never see me coming. I don’t discriminate, I show no mercy, and I feel no remorse.

My only loyalty is to my family and when someone important to them goes missing, I vow to do whatever is necessary to track her down and bring her back.

But the person I find is not the same woman who was stolen away.

Something’s different about her.
Something I find myself drawn to as we fight our way back to hell.

*Arlen*
Stubborn.
Reckless.
Original family disappointment.

My reputation has never preceded me.

I’m supposed to be this spoiled, rich b*tch who does everything her daddy tells her.

I was forbidden to even think about the Badlands.

But money means nothin to me and my paradise was a pretty cage I refused to be trapped in.

I fought my way out, I found a new family, and even though sh*t got tough sometimes it all worked out in the end.

And then I got kidnapped.
I thought it was over for me.
I almost broke.

I should have known he would never let that happen.
And I should have realized something inside me had shifted.

Maybe then I’d have seen the signs that I was falling for an irredeemable man.

A man who taught me that there was power in taking away a life.
A man who showed me just how beautiful hell truly was.

It’s only fair I warn you that this is not a story about a rescued damsel in distress.
This is a story about what happens when a man who collects souls finally meets his match.

*Outcasts is the 3rd book in the Badlands series. This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend starting Savages & Deviants first.*

/ ARC Book Review / Queen Of Diamonds (Old Money Roulette #1) Natalie Bennet /

His enemy. His partner. His whore.
His mind games. Her morals.

The road to hell…
Well, there is no road to hell.
I already live there.

I was forced to partake in a rigged game of seduction, manipulation, and murder.

Mateo Remmington is my formidable opponent.

He makes the devil look like a saint.

He’s immoral.
He’s ruthless.
He’s a goddamn king. 

King of a clandestine empire who sits on a throne covered in innocents’ blood.

I’ve become his obsession.
He’s becoming my deadly addiction.

And if I make one wrong move he’ll end my life.

/ ARC-Book Review / Demons (Devil’s Reach Book 2) / J.L. Drake /

Trigger…

I thought the light would bring redemption.

Salvation.

But it only brought the Devil to my doorstep.

My demons are breaking through, and the reaper is moving closer.

My weakness has been exposed, and there’s only one person who can calm this hell…

Tess…

I broke a promise to myself, and now I’m paying for it.

I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be a part of this hell.

But I don’t have a choice…

The reaper is riding bitch on our backs.

DISCLAIMER to add to online listings:

This is Book 2 in the Devil’s Reach trilogy, and it ends with a cliffhanger. Intended for readers 18 or older. May contain…triggers.

/ Book Review / Beast (Twisted Ever After #1) / A. Zavarelli /

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales.

But then he took me.

And he taught me that life isn’t a fairytale.

He is scarred. Broken.

A dark and wild thing.

His beauty is violent and his words are cruel.

His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow.

He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.

He’s destroyed my life.

Tortured me.

And worse…

He’s trained me to beg for his affection.

This prison is a place where sunlight doesn’t reach.

He taught me that hate is born in darkness.

And then he taught me that sometimes love is too.

/ Book Review /Savages (Badlands #1) / Natalie Bennett /

Calista
“I am the monster they created. I’m the whore they’re ashamed of.”

When life tried to break me I grabbed that b*tch by the throat and squeezed.
I thought I could overcome anything. I swore I could handle him, but after being forced to play at the Devil’s playground I ended up craving his touch.
One taste of his poison made my loyalties begin to waiver.

Romero
“I’m a living nightmare, I’m everything they fear.”

I’ve been called the Devil, deranged, and a savage. I lived by a code created by rebel souls. We were sinners and thieves that made no apologies for taking whatever the f*ck we wanted. Saving a girl in the woods was never part of my plans, but when I saw the crazy in her eyes I knew it was a match made in hell.

Now secrets are piling up, the bodies are rotting, and time is running out to finish what I started.

Forewarning, our story is more than a little f*cked up.

Authors Note:

I am not going to put a long ‘trigger warning’ on this book. I will say that Savages is a VERY cautionary tale that has no regard for hard limits. Reader discretion IS highly advised. <--18+

/ Book Review / The Broken Puppet (The Elite King’s Club #2) / by Amo Jones /

“I thought I knew who I was, but I was wrong.”

The Silver Swan
– 1. A girl who is tarnished. Tainted. One who does not fit into the confinement of legend.
The Silver Swan
-2. Madison Montgomery.

I was lied to.
I was cheated.
Resigned to pick up the scraps of empty memories and disarrayed thoughts, I left. After finally cutting the strings of manipulation, I resorted to do what I’ve done since I was a child, something my father drilled into my brain since I could handle my first rifle.
Run.
I’m a mere shadow of the girl they all knew.
Lies and deceit change you. They alter your entire outlook on life.
I’m Madison Montgomery, and I want to play a game.
Here’s what happens when I win.

Riddle me this, Mads.
What goes bump in the night,
but is something you can’t see with sight?
You may run, and you may hide.
If by happily ever after, you mean Bonnie & Clyde.

/ ARC-Book Review / Trigger (Devil’s Reach #1) / J.L. Drake /

***This book ends with a small cliffhanger. Intended for 18+. May contain Triggers.***

I was raised by the Devil himself.

Formed into a man who was unreachable.

I went from the boy with bruises to the man with a trigger.

Killing is the only thing that calms the itch.

The demons inside were a constant battle…

…until she changed everything.

Problem is when you spend most of your time in the dark, is it smart to step into the light?

/ 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 /

But there’s just one problem …
I’m falling for her. Deep. Hard. Fast.

I’ll do anything to make her stay.
One thing’s for sure … She will be mine.

🏍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.
