Review by Candy:

Merciless describes this story to a T. But there is a side that will be seen that isn’t as merciless. A must read but it’s a cliffhanger that I wasn’t expecting. You’ve been warned!

Aria is a rivals daughter that is  kidnapped but given to someone else.
Carter wants Aria but for reasons no one really knows but himself.
After Carter receives Aria he then will make her his, but will she give in to him and kneel?
Willow I have to say that was an excellent read! It flowed nicely between characters and had me wanting to know what Carter’s intentions really were. You did leave me hanging though and the curiosity just might kill me. As ruthless as Carter is, he can be loved by the reader. Aria is just a girl who was born into the wrong family and witnessed the murder of her mom, so in reading as Carter does what he does you’ll love her for her strength and determination. I can say one of my favorite of 2018. 5 stars for this suspenseful and intriguing read.

Genre: Romance/Military/MMF#mastered #honorbound 

Synopsis:
To save a friend’s life, she’ll sacrifice anything. Even herself.
Brynna Monet is on a man diet for the rest of her life. No more G-men, spies, or soldiers, period. Willpower comes easily from the scars left on her heart by a string of dominant bad boys who have all asked too high a price for her passion—her trust.When the unspeakable happens and her best friend is abducted by a madman, Brynn is assigned as a secret consultant on one of the military’s riskiest rescue missions, but she’s got help from a pair of the Special Forces’ most notorious bad boys—Rhett Lange and Rebel Stafford.
From the moment Brynn lands in the middle of a Texas wilderness with these two, she questions the sanity of her decision—and the survival of her willpower. Like the most decadent dominant dessert, Rhett and Rebel embody everything her body craves—and everything her spirit fears. Their control unravels her fantasies, their command exposes her desire…and their courage moves her heart.
But, like all dreams, it’s temporary. She knows better than to give up her trust—until the fate of the mission hinges on exactly that. Can she face her biggest fear to save a friend’s life while retaining her own soul?

Review by Susan:

This is the first book I’ve read in this series, I do feel it could be read as a standalone but I will be reading the series from the beginning as characters and situations from previous books are mentioned. The story follows Brynna, Rhett and Rebel, they are on a mission to rescue their friend And teammates wife Zoe, who has been abducted. Thrust together, feelings bubble to the surface, but can they give in to what they desire? Can Brynna let go and put her trust in Rhett and Rebel? Will they be in time to save Zoe?

I really enjoyed this book, I read it in one sitting, it was one hot, seriously sexy read! The chemistry between the three of them is off the charts and nearly melted my kindle. The story is full of twists yand turns, some you don’t see coming, you are left on the edge of your seat right till the end. This is a new to me author and I can’t wait to read the rest of this series.  4 Stars

Bane by L.J. Shen

SBPR-BT-BANNER-2

Bane-Cover-Facebook

Bane, the highly-anticipated next standalone in the Sinners of Saint Series by L.J. Shen is LIVE

Bane

Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud.

Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living.

Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled.

Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently.

Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Jesse Carter

Hot as hell, cold as ice.

I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap.

She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time.

She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad.

More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack.

Little does she know, I have the f****** teeth for it.

EXCERPT

Bane

Then.

A liar.

A con.

A godless thief.

My reputation was a big wave that I rode, one that swallowed everyone around me, drowning every attempt to fuck with what’s mine.

I’d been known as a stoner, but power was my real drug of choice. Money meant nothing. It was tangible, and therefore easy to lose. See, to me, people were a game. One I’d always known how to win.

Move the rooks around.

Change the queen when necessary.

Guard the king at all fucking times.

I was never distracted, never deterred, and never jealous.

So, imagine my surprise when I found myself being all three at once.

It was a siren with coal black hair who robbed me of riding the biggest wave I’d seen that summer. Of my precious attention. Of my goddamn breath.

She glided from the ocean to the beach like nightfall.

I crouched down, straddling my surfboard, gawking.

Edie and Beck stopped beside me, floating on their boards in my periphery.

“This one’s taken by Emery Wallace,” Edie had warned. Thief.

“This one’s the hottest masterpiece in town.” Beck had chuckled. Con.

“More importantly, she only dates rich bastards.” Liar.

I had all the ingredients to pull her in.

Her body was a patch of fresh snow. White, fair, like the sun shone through her, never quite soaking in. Her skin defied nature, her ass defied my sanity, but it was the words on her back that made my logic rebel.

It wasn’t her curves or the way she swayed her hips like a dangling, poisonous apple that warranted my reaction to her.

It was that tattoo I had noticed when she swam close to me earlier, the words trickling down the nape of her neck and back in a straight arrow.

My Whole Life Has Been Pledged to This Meeting with You

Pushkin.

I only knew one person who went gaga over the Russian poet, and, like the famous Alexander, he was currently six feet under.

My friends began to paddle back to shore. I couldn’t move. It felt like my balls were ten tons heavy. I didn’t believe in love at first sight. Lust, maybe, but even that wasn’t the word I was looking for. No. This girl fucking intrigued me.

“What’s her name?” I snatched Beck’s ankle, yanking him back to me. Edie stopped pedaling and looked back, her gaze ping-ponging between us.

“Doesn’t matter, bro.”

“What’s. Her. Name?” I repeated through a locked jaw.

“Dude, she’s, like, way young.”

“I will not repeat myself a third time.”

Beck’s throat bobbed with a swallow. He knew damn well that I didn’t mess around. If she was legal—it was on.

“Jesse Carter.”

Jesse Carter was going to be mine before she even knew me.

Before I even knew her.

Before her life turned upside down and her fate rewrote itself with her blood.

So here was the truth that even my lying ass wouldn’t admit later on in our story—I wanted her before.

Before she became business.

Before the truth caged her in.

Before the secrets gushed out.

I never did get to surf that day.

My surfboard broke.

Should have known it was an omen.

My heart was going to be next in line.

And for a small chick, she did one hell of a fucking job obliterating it.

Review by Paula:

First of all before anything this is my favorite book of the authors to date. Bane,you will fall deeply in love with this crazy, hilarious whore man. Jesse well all I can say is this woman reminds me of myself lost but stronger than she knows deep inside she just wants to be loved. This book blew me away I cried my eyes out and even had to take a breather at parts because I felt it in my chest. Never give up, don’t let anyone win over you. Fight and get your truly self back and maybe you might meet that one person that both of you need saving. I’m so glad the author wrote this story because woman truly need to realize we are strong and we deserve to be loved. 5 stars deserves 10 definitely a top 2018 romance for me

Bite Me by Louise Cypress

Bite Me

by Louise Cypress
Publication Date: May 14, 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Paranormal Romance

Purchase: Amazon

Ward yourself, slayers, Promageddon is coming!

Morgan Taylor-Jackson can’t wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents’ messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.

As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.

Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van’s mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.

 

Review by Candy:

Bite me says it all. That was not what I was expecting but enjoyed it nonetheless. I would describe this read as a young adult and supernatural genre. A girl still in high school and vampires with slayers thrown in. The beginning of a love story on the side too.
One night Morgan has dinner at her mom’s boyfriend’s house when at some point doesn’t remember the evening at all just the school day leading to. She becomes ill with strange bite marks are her neck that seems to be the cause of her infection from an insect. Things begin to change for Morgan and she doesn’t understand why.
Van is a slayer on a mission to find out who’s been killing in the name of vampires in Carlsbad. His targets of interests are Lukas and Esma Siban but they are considered Puritan vampires (you know the type that doesn’t drink human blood), Van doesn’t believe it but keeps an eye on them anyway. He meets Morgan the newborn who is unaware and immediately likes her but he shouldn’t because he may have to end her life what there is of it. He puts here through a series off test will she pass or fail?
Louise I loved morgan and Van and the story that brings them together. It wasn’t what I thought it would be for a vampire story. You did a great job bringing this story to life and it flows from the two main characters with the background characters as well. Once I got started I didn’t want to put it down. It was intriguing with some suspense thrown in. A different tale for vampires this one, Puritans who don’t drink human blood and the blood addicts that do (the good vs the bad). A great start to this series can’t wait for Esma’s story that’s next. A must read and look forward to the rest of the series! 5 Stars!

Review by Paula:

Holy wow well my mouth is hung open after reading this book! Talk about intense story it made me bite all my nails off and pace while reading it. This book starts right off where Broken Puppet ended. Madison’s life is a mystery. Bishop is he the good guy or is he truly the enemy hiding all the secrets. This was one whiplash story that makes you turn the pages dying to know what happens next. Don’t assume nothing cause you will be shocked. The author truly brought her game on with these books and to know we have 10 more to read just blows my mind. No spoilers here but read it have a open mind and welcome to the darkness of Madison. 5 Stars

New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

Burdened by a world that only wants to see her as perfect, Salana finds her greatest confidant in a boy society has labeled as worthless. Their paths cross too many times for their stubborn hearts to deny the connection, but can the delinquent and the debutant defy the odds and overcome the social constructs that condemn them?
