I asked for his criteria for bed buddies-that’s the PG version.

He swore at me and said he didn’t do groupies. And just like that, our friendship was off to a great start.

Reese Forster was the starting point guard for the Seattle Thunder.

Gorgeous. Cocky. Loved by the nation.

He’s also attending preseason basketball training camp where I used to work.

Correction: where I work again, because I was fired from my last job.

And dumped.

And I might have a tiny bit of baggage, but that’s normal. Right?

Reese and I shouldn’t have become friends. We shouldn’t have become roommates.

And we really shouldn’t have started sleeping together … (Except we did.)

I’m adorably psychotic. He’s in the NBA.
This is not a disaster waiting to happen, at all.

Teardrop Shot is a 107k standalone with brand new characters.

I am definitely a Tijan fan and so, of course, I want to read every book she releases…I did not, however, expect to love this book so much, that from now on, Mason will have to share his number one spot. I absolutely adored Charlie and Reese !!!

From the moment I started reading, I was pulled in and I did an all-nighter so I could finish in one go. I loved it that much. Maybe it was the writing style…maybe it was the awesome characters or maybe it was the interesting storyline. It was probably all of those combined though 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Now this book was pretty long, but for me…I could have done with even double the pages !!

Anyways, I love sports book, awesome heroes and quirky heroines, so I really hit the jackpot with this one 😉 I also love me some angst and emotion and I got that as well. 

How would you feel when your whole world is crumbling, but then, when you think you are at your lowest…you meet your idol and he turns out to be everything and so much more !!!

I have to admit that I don’t know crap about basketball, but I would definitely go to every game to cheer Reese on !! That man was fine…in every way 😉

It took me some time to get used to Charlie though. The questions felt a bit weird in the beginning, but once Reese started answering, I was actually hoping she would ask him more. 

These two were absolutely adorkable. This book was filled with heartache, laughter, steam, friendship and most of all…love !!

It shows that everyone deserves a second chance at love. It is definitely gonna end up on my “favorite MF reads of 2019” list. 

I highly recommend it to everyone.

Excerpt:

He came out, all ready, saw me, and shook his head.

Giving him the biggest smile I could muster, I handed over his coffee and dangled my keys. “Let’s go.”

My neighbor was coming home from his night shift at a factory. He was trudging down the hallway when he saw us, lifted a hand in greeting, then stopped. His head shot upright and his shoulders stiffened.

He rotated swiftly on his heels, his eyes wide and bulging. He held up a hand. “Is that—”

“No.” Lying. Another superhero quality of mine. “It’s late, Bill. That’s my brother.”

Reese squashed a laugh and nodded to the guy. “What’s up.” It wasn’t a question, but a greeting, and he hustled me past my neighbor.

I gave Reese a look as we went to my underground parking spot. “He’s going to hammer me later. He’ll know he wasn’t seeing things.”

“He’s a fan?”

“The biggest.”

Reese smirked, meeting my gaze over the top of my car. “Bigger than you?”

We were entering cheesy territory here. We needed to scale it back.

“I have a cardboard cutout of you,” I told him. “In my closet.”

He froze. “You’re joking.”

I was, but now I had to buy one. “Wouldn’t you like to think that.” Settling into my chair, I felt better—more familiar terrain again. “But the funny thing is, next time you come, you won’t know if I was serious or if I bought him after I told you.”

Reese just rolled his eyes, putting the coffees in the cup holders for both of us.

He was looking around as I pulled out of the lot. “This is actually a nice place.”

“The underground parking is nice. The apartment building itself is okay. Nothing great.” I didn’t tell him how the lights in the laundry room would dim, so if I used those machines, I had to prop the door open with a rock. Or how I’d only do my clothes between seven in the morning and nine. Nine was the latest. After that, people were stirring, and there were a few neighbors I wasn’t so sure about.

Reese whistled as I pulled up to departures seven minutes later. “You weren’t kidding. That’s close.”

“And you’ve barely had your coffee.”

He yawned now, blinking a few times. “I’ll grab some inside. You can have it.”

I parked, but didn’t shut off the engine.

“Do not get out,” he warned.

I grinned. “Wasn’t planning on it. We really don’t need to go to that level, with the hugging, would we kiss or not… Too many strings, friend.”

He smiled back, but his eyes had started to smolder a bit. He leaned over, dropping his voice, “I’ll answer one of those questions.” His lips caught mine in a good, firm kiss, one that sent my senses spiraling and stole just the slightest bit of oxygen from my lungs.

I might’ve needed to gather my bearings as he pulled back and grabbed his bag from the back. Before he turned, he gave me a second kiss, this one lighter. “Go home. Go to bed,” he said as he reached for the door. “Text me when you park, and again when you’re inside your place. Humor me. I’m a friend. I can care.”

He was starting to leave, but I tugged on his shirt.

He paused, looking back.

“And after that?” I asked.

“We’re friends. Let’s play it by ear.”

Our gazes held, a shared reminder of the other details in our agreement. I saw his darkening, so I let go. “Okey-dokey. Hope you don’t get mauled.”

He laughed. “It’s too early for that.”

But we both knew the truth. It could happen.

As if reading my mind, he amended, “It’s usually not that bad. If it is—and I don’t think it will be—airport security is good with celebrities here. They’ve got a special room and everything. Plus…” He reached in his bag and pulled out a baseball hat, dragging it low over his eyes and flicking up his hood. “This is pretty incognito.”

His height wasn’t, but I decided to pick my battles. “I’ll expect twenty questions by the time you land.”

He laughed. “Don’t think so. I’m going to be sleeping that whole time, but I’ll text you updates just to annoy you.” He got out, but bent back down, his tone more serious. “Do me a favor? Only take that job if you want it. Don’t take it because you feel desperate. I can loan you money, if anything.”

That wiped all joking aside. “Reese.” Dammit. “I’ll never lose myself in a guy again. Ever.”

“Yeah, but before you didn’t have a friend who could loan you money until you got to a place where you could pick something that actually made you happy.” His eyes flashed a warning. “Now you do. Just think about it. It’s a loan. I’d give one to another friend in the same spot.”

I rolled my eyes.

He chuckled. “Drive safe. I liked screwing you. Let’s do it again and soon.”

“I changed my mind. Get mauled!”

I could hear his laugh as he shut the door and headed inside, his bag over his shoulder. Only a couple guys squinted at him, their heads cocked to the side. He was right. His incognito look really was incognito, but he was still frustrating.

And I was hoping for thesoontoo.

Driving back, my phone kept buzzing.

Reese: Checking in.

Reese: I had to check my bag. It’s too big for a carry-on.

Reese: Two autographs.

Reese: Going up the escalator now.

Reese: At the security line. The guards are cool. They promised not to be angry when Thunder beats the Coyotes.

Reese: Through security.

He knew I couldn’t answer. I was driving.

Reese: I’m at gate A6.

Reese: This is a nice airport. I always forget till I get here.

Reese: I upgraded to first class.

Reese: Coach wants to make sure I get back in time for meetings this morning.

Reese: Still not boarding. Just letting you know.

After parking, I grabbed my phone.

Me: It’s supposed to be questions. Like, if I asked security if I could put a body in my bag, could I still check it? Questions like that. You’re not following the rules.

Reese: Fuck the rules. These are my rules.

Reese: You do questions. I do updates. Deal with it.

Reese: Except now. Are you back at your place?

Me: Yes. Walking upstairs now.

Reese: No updates from you. Well. Yes. Tell me when you get in your place.

I turned down my hallway. Bill’s door opened and his head popped out. His hair was scruffed up like he’d been trying for a Mohawk. “No bullshit. Was that him?”

I was about to break a fellow Reese Forster fan’s heart. “It was my brother.”

He glared. “You’re not fucking with me?”

“No.”

“Oh.”

That was it.

His head went back in, and he slammed his door shut.

Immediately Mrs. Rings yelled from her apartment across the hall. “STOP SLAMMING THE DOORS! EVERYONE FUCKING SHUT IT!”

And her parrot a second later.

“STOP SLAMMING FUCKING SHUT IT!”

And then, “SHUT IT, BORIS!”

And her parrot again, “EVERYONE FUCK IT AND GO TO SLEEP!”

When I saw the blurb for this book, I was immediately interested, and when I saw some of the early reviews from my friends on GR…I knew I had to read it as soon as possible! Of course, my lovely friends never lead me astray and so I have to admit that this book was absolutely awesome !!!

so much awesomeness gif - Google zoeken

The second I started to read, I was pulled into the story and I didn’t put the book down until I was finished. I have never read a book by this author before, but I can tell you I will be going through all of them now because I really liked the writing style… The fact that this book has all my favorite tropes, was a big plus as well 😉

I also love books that take place in highschool or college….takes me back and makes me feel a bit young again9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Hailee is senior in high school and she can’t wait to finish this last year, and finally get away from Rixon and especially from Jase…Rixon’s very own QP and Hailee’s tormentor aka stepbrother. Now don’t go getting this wrong because this is NOT a stepsibling romance. These two really do hate each other’s guts and especially Jase takes his bullying to the extreme. But with Jase also comes his minions…Asher and Cameron.

Cameron who once was almost Hailee’s friend, but who turned out to be just as bad as her stepbrother….or is he ???

I loved the whole enemies to lovers theme, but I also loved the friendships and the dynamics between all characters. So curious how everything is gonna turn out. Hailee and Cameron were definitely made for each other…I am actually a bit jealous of Cameron because Hailee is pretty awesome if I say so myself. Just how I like my heroines.

I loved this book so hard !! I am sure it is gonna end up on my “Top 10 Reads” list of 2019. That said, we will be getting more books so who knows how many are gonna end up on that list. I have a feeling Jase’s book is gonna be pretty interesting. I am a HUGE fan of redeemable assholes and he is the perfect specimen for that trope.

I can’t wait…I need MORE !! Right now, please !!!!!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go through all this author’s books 😛

Highly recommended !!!

When I was fifteen, a single bullet changed my life. I spent the next decade trying to outrun the devastation of my past, building an empire that would shield me from whatever life could throw at me. 

But all the money in the world couldn’t help me when I found a screaming newborn abandoned on my doorstep.

I’d never wanted to be a father. Passing the sludge that ran through my veins down to an innocent child seemed like a tragedy. But there she was—pink cheeks, red hair, and mine.

Somehow, against all logic, that little girl became the best thing that ever happened to me. It was impossible to stay lost in the past when I was the only one who could protect her future.

Which is exactly why, when her mother came back four years later, I was ready for battle.

If only I could stop myself from falling in love with her during the war.

This is the second installment in the Regret Duet and after Aly left us with a major cliffhanger in the last book… I needed this one like my life depended on it.

Thankfully the wait between these two books is not too long…and it was most definitely worth it.

This book opens exactly where the last one left us and so we are thrown right in the middle of the storm… I was on the edge of my seat, and I pretty much stayed there until I reached the end. Now I need a drink(s) !!! This was intense but in the best damn way !!

Twists and turns were coming from every single angle and I am utterly exhausted. This Duet is definitely going on my “top reads of 2019” list, that’s for sure.

Every little girl dreams of the fairytale. The one where the white knight rushes in to save her from the clutches of evil. They fall in love, have babies, and live happily ever after.

By that definition, my life should have been a fairytale too.

When I was eight years old, Caven Hunt saved me from the worst kind of evil to walk the Earth. It didn’t matter that I was a kid. I fell in love with him all the same.

But that was where my fairytale ended.

Years later, a one-night stand during the darkest time imaginable gave us a little girl. It was nothing compared to the pitch black that consumed me when I was forced to leave her with Caven for good.

At the end of every fairytale, the happily-ever-after is the one thing that remains consistent. It wasn’t going to be mine, but there hadn’t been a night that passed where I hadn’t prayed that it would be hers.

I owed Caven my life.

However, I owed that innocent child more.

And that included ripping the heart from my chest and facing her father again.

I have a confession to make… I have waited until the last moment to start reading this one. Reason being…a dreaded cliffhanger. I absolutely hate cliffhangers and normally I avoid them like the plague and wait until all the books are out to start reading. So…why did I sign up for this one ?? Well the answer is pretty simple… because Aly Martinez is one of my favorite authors and I knew I wanted …no needed to read this book !!

So here we are now and I have been left with the mother of all cliffhangers !!!

cliffhanger gif - Google zoeken

Thankfully this author seems to love her readers, because she is not making us wait too long, since the next book is already coming out next month…so fear not 😉 

I also knew going into this one, that I was probably gonna be hit with a truckload of angst…and sure enough…I was crying within a couple of pages !!

so many feelz gif - Google zoeken

Thankfully, I was also laughing my ass off within no time, so the balance was restored swiftly 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Now I can’t say too much about the story itself because that would be spoilering and everyone who is familiar with Aly Martinez’ work knows it would be a big shame to spoiler one of her books. So I am gonna keep this one very vague…sorry definitely not sorry 😉

not sorry at all gif - Google zoeken

As much as I hate cliffies, I am so glad I read this book. And I also have got to say…I didn’t even see the end coming. It really took me by surprise and I am still trying to figure out what the hell just happened !!

I don’t mind being left in the dark for a little while though…It was definitely worth it and next month will be here before we know it.

I highly recommend this book and everything else this author has written 😉

Excerpt:

Life had never been easy for me. Chaos had been following me like a dark cloud, looming and hovering, casting its shadow far and wide despite how bright the path in front of me should have appeared. After growing up the way I had, where happiness had been more of a privilege than a choice, I knew better than to believe that that moment would be anything other than fleeting.

And one second later, the universe proved me right.

I opened the door to see who had rung the bell—a cursory check revealed an empty hallway.

And that’s when I heard it: the sound that changed not only my entire life in the present, but my life for all future days to come.

At first, it was just a grunt, but as if that baby could feel my gaze, the minute my eyes made contact, it let out a sharp cry.

Confusion hit me like a lightning bolt, sending me back a step. I used the door frame for balance as I took in the yellow blanket with a hole only big enough to reveal a pale-pink face.

“What the fuck?” I breathed. Glancing around the hall, I waited for someone to jump out and start laughing. When no one spoke up to issue a punchline, I took a step closer and repeated, “What the fuck?”

I was utterly unable to process the absurdity in front of me.

Of course, I knew the facts.

It was a baby.

On my doorstep.

Alone.

But the why in that equation was glaringly absent.

“Uhhh,” Ian drawled, peering over my shoulder. “Why is there a kid at your door?”

“I have no idea,” I replied, staring down at the squirming and now-screaming bundle. “It was just there when I opened the door.”

Ian shoved me to the side so he could stand beside me. “You’re shitting me, right?”

“Does it look like I’m shitting you?”

He looked from me to the baby, then back again. “How did it get there?”

We were two incredibly smart men who had created a technology empire out of nothing. But, clearly, a baby was too big for either of us to wrap our minds around.

I swept an arm out and pointed to the kid. “I have no clue, but I’m assuming it didn’t catch a cab.”

A light of understanding hit his eyes. He moved first, stepping over the crying baby and hurrying down the hall, searching around the corner near the elevator before returning alone.

The party continued behind me, but even with the door open, the loud chatter was no match for the ear-piecing cries happening in that hallway.

Veronica suddenly appeared beside me, her body going solid as she stammered out. “Is that…a baby?”

“Back up,” I urged, throwing my arm out to block her path as though the infant were going to suddenly morph into a rabid animal. And let’s be honest, I knew nothing about babies. Anything was possible.

Ian dropped to his knees, scooping up the wailing child. Meanwhile, I stood there like a gawking idiot, paralyzed by a weight I didn’t yet understand.

“Call the pol—” He stopped abruptly and reached into the top of the child’s blanket. “Oh shit,” he whispered, his wide, panic-filled eyes flashing to mine.

“What?” I asked, stepping toward him to get a better look at the kid. Only it wasn’t that tiny baby cradled in his arms that made my heart stop and bile rise in my throat.

There, in my best friend’s hand, was a folded piece of notebook paper that had been tucked into the child’s blanket. From the looks of it, the paper was unremarkable in every sense of the word. Blue lines, white spaces, hanging remnants from where it had been haphazardly ripped from a spiral bound notebook. Even the crease was crooked. But it was my name scrawled on the outside in messy, black ink that made it the most remarkable paper in existence.

I snatched it from his hand and, with blood roaring in my ears, opened it.

Caven,

I’m sorry. I never meant for this to happen. This is our daughter Keira. I’ll love her forever. Take care of her the way I can’t.

Written with regret,

Hadley

The hall began to spin, my head feeling like every ounce of blood had been drained from my body. The thundering in my ears faded and the loud chatter of my guests, who were suddenly aware that something was happening at the door, roared to life.

And then the chaos finally found me all over again—the past playing out in my head like my life flashing before my eyes.

I sucked in a deep breath and looked at the baby in his arms. The blanket had fallen off its head just enough to reveal a patch of fine hairs, more orange than its mother’s red.

“Call the police,” I declared, turning on a toe and walking back into my apartment, leaving Ian standing in the hall with Hadley’s child.

Shoving through the crowd of concerned onlookers, I headed straight to the bottles of liquor lining the counter. I didn’t bother with ice or even a glass. I threw back that bottle of vodka, hoping like hell the burn of the alcohol could numb the panic coursing through my veins.

Through it all, that baby never stopped crying.22

Take is the fifth book in the amazing “Deliver” series. Now let me start this review, by saying that this book can and should not be read as a stand-alone. If you want to really enjoy this series, you should go back and start reading with Deliver #1, and slowly…or fast…work your way down to this awesome read. Trust me…you won’t be sorry. 

trust me gif - Google zoeken

This is definitely a dark romance series and each and every book has some major triggers… That also goes for this one. I am not gonna mention them all, but I did want to give you a little warning in case “dark” isn’t really your thing.  

Those of you who have already started this series, already know Kate from the previous books. She has been through hell and back and now she is still struggling to move on. Too bad that hell doesn’t seem to be finished with her just yet and decides to screw with her once again…using Tiago Badell, to do so.

I really don’t want to say anything that could possibly spoiler this book. It should be read blindly I think… So I am gonna keep my review short and simple. 

Tiago has definitely become one of my favorite anti-heroes, though he still has to take a little bit of a back seat to Van Quiso….then again…I don’t think anyone will ever be able to top him in my book !! That said… Tiago was all sorts of hot, darkbroody and disturbed. Just how I like my men 😛

Kate tries her very best to hate every part of his being…but it isn’t all that easy. Not everything is as black and white as she would like it to be. Could it be she is actually developing feelings for this monster…or is she suffering from a case of “Stockholm syndrome”. 

One smile, and he could be mistaken as human, A hot-as-fuck human with the capacity to shift and melt things inside her.

This story really pushes against some boundaries, it definitely pushed some of mine…but I gobbled it all up, like the good little girl that I am fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

Kate really is my kind of heroine. She was so strong, but she also excepted her weaknesses…she was no push-over, but she knew not to push beyond the limits. I admired the fact, that even with everything she has been trough…she still had the ability to look further…to see beyond the outside.

She saw a heart worthy enough to take

When raven shifter Riley Porter was given sanctuary by the Phoenix Pack, she let them believe she had left her flock. Reluctant to divulge the secrets of her past, she was still embraced as family. Only Tao Lukas, the protective and passionate Head Enforcer of the pack, was resistant to the enigmatic shifter. Until Riley started to arouse in him something other than suspicion.

Tao doesn’t trust lone shifters, especially ones so guarded—and tempting. But the sexual tension between them is making them both come undone, and vulnerable to more than desire. All Tao wants is for Riley to stay with him and to trust him with the truth of her past.

As Riley’s mysteries come to light, so does a danger that threatens not only her life but the safety of the entire pack. For Tao, keeping Riley safe means keeping her close—forever—as his mate.

As some of you know, I don’t read as many MF books as I used to anymore. That’s because I am pretty picky when it comes to them.  I will always read a book written by Suzanne Wright though because she has always been one of my favorite MF authors. I have read almost all her books and I will continue to do so in the future. What can I say…I am a huge fan !!!

I have known Tao, since he was introduced in the first book of the Phoenix series. I have always wanted to know more about the Head Enforcer of the Phoenix pack.

Riley, a raven shifter, has only recently (previous book) moved to the Phoenix pack. She was taken in by the pack because she came with two young shifter children, who were given sanctuary by the pack.

These didn’t start off on the right foot. Tao strongly distrusts strangers, especially lone shifters and he didn’t want Riley anywhere near his pack. That doesn’t mean he didn’t think she was hot though.

After Riley has spent some time with the pack, Tao slowly starts to trust her and even like her….he was already very attracted to her, so now…he just needs to make a move…which is exactly what he does.

ba631a34db3caac6f26a23acb57f0a43 (480×232)

Riley loves nothing more than antagonizing Tao. It brings her and her raven much pleasure. She can’t deny being very attracted to the man though…So once the ice is broken and Tao suggests they take things a bit further, Riley figures…why the hell not. It’s not like it’s anything serious…….

I really liked Riley. It is always very hard for me to like a heroine, which is why I am such a big fan of this series and the other ones written by this author. She writes about very strong females, who don’t take shit from anyone. Riley was funny and kickass.

“You better hope you are never on fire, Tao, because I’m more likely to relax and pull out some marshmallows than to help you.”

Everyone who has read Suzanne Wright’s books, knows that they are extremely HOT. This one was no exception. I was, as usual, blushing my way through this one.

“I’ll fuck you in every way I can have you. And then I’ll do it again and again.”

There is a whole background story going on, about Riley’s former flock but I don’t want to spoiler the whole book. It’s best to read it for yourself. These books can be read as stand alone’s, though you wouldn’t know all the side-characters (and there are plenty), so I would advise reading the whole series. You won’t be sorry 😉

I myself hope there will be plenty more books in this series and all the others. No one does shifters, vampires and demons like Suzanne Wright does 😉

My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make.
I slept with my student, a senior in high school.
Multiple times.
I had multiple orgasms.
In multiple positions.
I slept with my student and I enjoyed it.
I slept with my student and I’d do it all over again if I could turn back time.
My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal’s office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.
My name is Melody Greene, and I did something bad because it made me feel good.
Here is why it was totally worth it.

I am a big fan of L.J. Shen’s work and so I loved reading the “Sinners of Saint” series. In light of her new series “All Saints High” almost coming out, I figured I would do a re-read of all the books so everything is fresh in my mind. Now imagine my surprise (read: shock) when I found out I never read Jamie’s story !!! I just don’t understand how this happened !!

in shock gif - Google zoeken

Of course, when I found out (a few hours ago), I put everything else aside and fixed the error of my ways… Normally I would be thankful this was a short story, but we are talking “HotHoles” here and so I was just sad when I was finished so soon.

Since I already read every book in this series, I knew exactly who Jaime was and that Melody was his former teacher. I was so happy to finally find out how they got together…better late than never 😉 

finally gif - Google zoeken

It was sooo good. Melody is a 26-year-old English Lit teacher at All Saints High. This makes her 8 years older than the “Hotholes“, who are all in one of her classes. And somewhere along the way, she has caught the attention of one of them specifically… Jamie …7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1

Melody isn’t really happy with her job. She is trying to teach a bunch of privileged kids, who make it a mission not to listen to anything she says. To make matters worse, the principal of the school, who is also Jamie’s mother, is a cold-hearted bitch seemingly trying to get her fired. Not that being a teacher was ever her dreamjob…she wanted to be a dancer, but life isn’t always fair.

You know what also isn’t fair….One of your students trying to blackmail you for sex because you wrecked his car 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659 Jamie makes it perfectly clear what it is he wants from Melody. I just don’t think it really classifies as blackmail …since she seems to want it just as much. 

17892486.gif (500×206)

I loved these two. This book was definitely a bit on the lighter side compared to all the others. Melody’s inner voice was hilarious and she really is “my kind of girl”. I can understand why Jamie wanted her so badly. That said…Jamie was pretty freaking awesome himself !!

I can’t wait for “Pretty Reckless” to get here. I know Daria is gonna be the heroine and she is Jamie and Melody’s daughter. I am sure she will be just as awesome as her parents.

Highly recommended

Lips-PNG-File Synopsis

Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas.

 

WINTER

Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.

But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan. And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.

He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.

DAMON

First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.

Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.

But that’s not what’s coming.

No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.

Starting with her.

She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.

As the new man of the house I have all the keys.

Kill Switch is suitable for readers 18+. While it can be read as a stand-alone, all of the characters are developed throughout the series. The first two books, Corrupt and Hideaway, are now available through Kindle Unlimited!

If you’ve read the first book in this series, More Than This, then you should be very aware of who Logan is. If you haven’t… stop what you are doing and go read it… now !! Things will make much more sense if you read book 1 first. 

Logan is Jake’s friend and he is an awesome cocky bastard !! He doesn’t sugarcoat and what you see is what you get… and boy did I like what I saw 5d0ea20d51184ba1bb6249faf6f342ba Continue reading

Let me start out by saying that these books should not be read as a stand-alone. You need to start at the beginning or you might get confused. I also know that in order to read the third book in this series, Kill Switch, which is coming out on February 11th, you need to have read “Corrupt“.

This is one of my favorite books in the series and I felt it was time for an awesome re-read. I very much enjoyed the first book in this series, Vicious, but Cole really does it for me… This is Dean “Ruckus” Cole and Rose “baby LeBlanc‘s” story.

They both play I huge part in the first book, so I would suggest reading that one, before starting this second installment…which rocks !! Continue reading
