After reading and loving The Trouble with You , I went back to check out more books by this author. I absolutely devoured this series after reading the first book. All the books are a wonderful mix of friendship, family, love, hate and teenage angst….just delicious 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

I really enjoyed every single book, though some I loved more than others, which goes for the characters as well. Now Summer, she has always been a favorite of mine. Just hanging out in the back, not causing any ruckus and trying to be sweet and caring with everyone. Her and her boyfriend Nick were doing awesome, and it seemed like they had everything planned out for the future…

That is until everything falls apart and when I say everything…I do mean everything. My heart broke for poor Summer… They say all bad shit comes in threes and in this case they were right…damn !!

But they also say that sunshine appears after the rain…and thankfully it did so for Summer. That’s not to say that all the bad things were suddenly solved…but it did help. Or should I say…he did help…a lot fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

This was definitely one of my favorite stories in this series, right along with book 1, which also blew me away. 

The angst slapped me in the face and I was alternating between crying and laughing throughout the whole story.

I can’t wait to read more by this amazing author. I don’t know if there will be more books in this series, but I do know I am anxiously awaiting The Game You Play.

I highly recommend this series !!

“Untamed Delights”, by Suzanne Wright

Check out the awesome 8th and last book in the incredible “Phoenix Pack” series !

https://www.facebook.com/suzannewrightfanpage/photos/a.1394558954090575/2278401949039600/?type=3

Title: Untamed Delights
Series: The Phoenix Pack
Author: Suzanne Wright
Genre: Fantasy Romance
Release date: July 16, 2019


 

LIPS (1) Blurb

Return to the sensual and feral stirrings of the Phoenix Pack as a woman who’s already bound to one man is tempted by a wolf who’s bound only to his nightly desires.

Cat shifter Mila Devereaux can’t help but see it as a betrayal. That her one true mate imprinted himself on another female was hard enough to accept. Struggling to be at peace with her loveless fate, she doesn’t fight the suggestion of entering an arranged mating. Then she meets Dominic, a pack enforcer with a notorious reputation. It’s in his very scent. This irresistible playboy—and delicious badass wolf—is making Mila’s fantasies come alive again.

Alarming, compelling, and heady with sensual energy, Dominic is an expert at making women shed their inhibitions. Now everything about him—his killer smile, his perfectly sculpted body, and his smooth-as-honey voice—is drawing in a captivating new catch. But for the first time in his life, Dominic is feeling more than a fling. He finds himself tantalized by a female who makes him think of forever. He wants all of Mila and won’t be satisfied until he has it.

As the passion grows wild, so does the risk. They’re falling in love in the shadows and secrets of their pasts. And it’s threatening to destroy everything Mila and Dominic are fighting for. And are destined for.

Oh, how I love this author and anything she writes !! I am a huge fan of shifters, vampires, and demons and so you can imagine my giddiness the day I discovered Suzanne Wright’s books. I have been a stalker fan, ever since.

Writing this review is a bit double for me. This is the 8th and last book in the “Phoenix Pack” series after all and I am not bored yet….not by a long shot. No matter how much I have wanted to read “Dominic’s book (ever since book 1) I am a bit sad now that I am done… I am not ready to say goodbye !! These people are all like family now …if my family consisted of big bad broody alpha wolves that is 😛 

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor pack of wolves gif

Thankfully, Suzanne has stated at the end of this book, that we will be seeing all our favorites again. They will have cameos in the new and upcoming series `Olympus Pride`. And I also have “Shard of Frost” to look forward too and new books in the “Dark in You” series. So no time to be sad really !!

As I have said, I have been a bit in love with Dominic since meeting him in “Feral Sins”. I just knew that this incredible flirt would find an even more incredible mate 😉 But….not a true mate. I liked that…a lot. We have had all sorts of mates in this series and most of them were “true” ones, but I am thankful that Dominic’s story was different. They really made the decision to be together, without fate or whatever deciding for them. I mean Mila’s true mate was right under her nose and she could have fought for him if she wanted to…but she didn’t.

She didn’t want to be with someone who was in love with another, not even if they were technically “made for each other”. She chose for herself and her choice was Dominic…

This one was definitely another favorite of mine and I can’t wait to read Elliot’s story in Shard of Frost which is gonna be out about the same time this book is !!!

I highly recommend this series and all the others by this author !!

Ava Diaz needs saving.

She just doesn’t know it yet.

Just like she doesn’t know a thing about the boy she sits next to on the first day of senior year.

He thinks she’s a brat.

She thinks he’s entitled.

Maybe first impressions don’t always last…

Because Connor Ledger’s about to save her.

He just doesn’t know why.

I knew when I started reading the first page of the first book, Heartache & Hope, that I was gonna fall in love with this Duet. And I did…because I know myself and this is definitely one of my all-time favorite authors. If she would re-write the phonebook I would probably have to give it 5 stars and read it over and over again 😉 

again and again gif - Google zoeken

Let me start out by saying that these books can not be read as stand alones. You need to read the first book before starting the second. Things won’t make much sense if you don’t.

The previous book left us with quite the cliffy and I was so happy when this one arrived on my kindle, because I had to know what would happen next. 

Now I am gonna keep this review very ague because if there is one thing I have learned from reading Jay McLean’s books, is that they are best enjoyed when you go into them blind. So I don’t want to spoil anyone’s enjoyment. 

All you really need to know is that you are in for some serious (teenage) angst, heartache, tears and most definitely love….Because that is the most profound emotion when it comes to this story…LOVE.

We should all be so lucky and have a Connor in our lives. 

I have finished this Duet days ago and it is still on my mind. It definitely packs a punch and leaves you breathless. I can’t recommend it highly enough. It sure as hell deserved a spot on my “all-time favorites of 2019” list.

There’s a long list of things I don’t handle well:
Change.
Relationships.
Breakups.

But there’s one person above everything else I can’t seem to get a handle on.
𝘉𝘳𝘰𝘥𝘺 𝘞𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘤𝘦.
In short, he’s perfect. The reality, he scares me.

He’s the opposite of what I usually go for. He’s bigger. Intimidating. He reminds me of someone I’d rather forget.

When I need to find a new place to live, Brody offers me his spare room, but I have no plans on taking him up on the offer. He doesn’t know what happened to me five years ago, and I want to keep it that way.
But with limited options, I find myself outside his apartment holding a full moving box and wondering: How can I do this without exposing the darkest part of my past?

Books that center around Mental Health are always a bit of a hit and miss for me. This is because I myself suffer from multiple issues, and so I am not always up to reading about it. Sometimes I just like to pretend I am an ostrich… 

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor ostrich gif head in sand

Other times I don’t mind reading about it because it makes me feel less alone…if you get what I’m saying. 

Anyways…I usually try not to let my mood affect my rating because me being in a bad place has nothing to do with the book or the story 😉 

In this instance, I really enjoyed the story…it actually made me feel hopeful, which is always a good thing. That said…I still want to point out the triggers to those who do mind reading about mental health.

 Anders and Brody were introduced in the previous book and since I didn’t know this before I started, I had to go back and read book 1, Unwritten Law. I do advice reading that one first 😉

Now this book may have dealt with some heavy subjects but that doesn’t mean it was all heavy and dark. There was definitely light and fun and sweetness. 

I had a lot of admiration for Anderson and respect for Brody in how he dealt with everything. Anderson has been through some very traumatic events and is still struggling with the aftermath. He is suffering from a severe case of PTSD, amongst other things. But thankfully he isn’t alone… He will find strength in Brody, who I loved dearly …

Love doesn’t solve all your problems, I know this better than anyone…but it sure as hell helps. Having someone to love you, support you and hold you up when you crumble…is everything…

Excerpt

My feet carry me across the apartment to Anders’ door, and I knock gently. “Anders?”

There’s a moan and then a curse.

I have no idea what I’m doing or what I’m going to say. Demanding answers isn’t an option, and neither is laying it all out there that I want more.

He still hasn’t opened the door.

I knock louder. “Anders? Are you okay?”

“Uh, hang on,” he calls out.

There’s something in his voice that sounds strained.

His footsteps get closer but then stop, and the door doesn’t budge. I lean in closer to try to hear more, which is when Anders, of course, opens it. I jump back but not fast enough.

He’s bare chested. Breathing hard. His face flushed. His mouth opens. Then closes.

That’s when I notice how poor a job his boxers are doing at hiding the giant erection trying to get free.

“Oh.” My gaze flies to his. “Oh. Umm, right. Okay. I … you know what, it’s not important.” I practically fall over myself trying to turn and get away as fast as I can, because oops. Interrupting a wank session is poor form.

A chuckle comes from behind me. “It’s your fault, you know.”

I spin to face him. “Mine? How?”

Anders closes the gap between us with torturously slow steps. “All I’ve been thinking about is kissing you again.”

I feel his voice all the way to my toes, making them curl into the carpet.

He’s a breath away now, so close I can smell sex on him as if he’s wearing it like cologne.

I want to close the gap. I want to kiss him. My gaze lands on his lips, and I feel my tongue run along my own.

“But we can’t,” he whispers. There’s absolutely no conviction behind it. It sounds more like resigned defeat.

“Why not?” My voice mimics his, low and sexy with a tiny hint of a growl.

Anders takes a step back as if needing space. “My therapist. She said we shouldn’t. Not until …”

“Until?”

“Until I’m ready.”

“I’m guessing you’re not going to be ready in say the next ten seconds?” I ask hopefully.

Anders laughs. “Goddammit.” He rushes me, almost knocking me off my feet as he claims my mouth.

I groan as his tongue meets mine and his hands embrace and cling to me. He pulls me close, and while I’m still so bloody confused, I can’t stop myself from taking it.

Anders murmurs words I can’t understand against my lips, but when he pulls back a tiny bit, no longer assaulting my mouth but still kissing me, I hear, “Why do you have to be so … you?”

He kisses my cheek, the side of my jaw, and my neck, while his impressive cock digs into my side. His lower half rubs against me, and my own cock wants friction, but my head gets stuck on his words.

“What do you mean, why do I have to be me? What’s wrong with being me?”

“I’ve tried everything to make you unsexy in my head. Only, it’s not working. I still go to bed with you on my mind and my hand on my dick.”

His breath is hot on my skin. “I’ve been trying to be good. Trying not to touch you. Trying to forget how good it felt to have your cock in my mouth. I’ve been trying to avoid this. I don’t want to freak out again. But you feel so damn, amazing, Brody.”

He’s moving into rambling territory as he ruts against me, and I throw my head back when our cocks line up through our boxers.

If we keep going like this, we’re no doubt going to fall over.

“Couch,” I croak.

His head snaps back, and he looks me in the eyes. “Couch?”

“Pin me again. Make it so I can’t move from beneath you and take what you need.”

“Brody,” he whines but pushes me towards the couch.

I fall onto my back, but I get a chance to whip my shirt over my head before Anders’ hard body lands on top of me.

I lift my hands above my head, joining them at the wrists.

“Hold me in place,” I encourage. If this is what he needs to get off, I’m more than willing to give it to him.

As much as I’m dying to touch him and hope one day I’ll be able to, this, what we have right here, is more than enough for me.

The Fischers are the only family Brennan has ever known, and when they adopt him, he has no plans on doing anything to jeopardize that. Even if it means pretending Josh Daly doesn’t make his heart pound every time their eyes meet. 

The tension eases once Josh heads off to a Christian University on a baseball scholarship. Brennan stays put in Elm Grove to work at his family’s drive-in movie theater and take classes at the local community college. 

But when Josh comes home for summer break, the feeling not only returns, it transforms into a loud and commanding drumbeat he struggles to tune out. 

Finally admitting who he is feels overwhelming. There’s a reason Brennan remains a virgin and when he realizes Josh might be one too, the chemistry between them becomes impossible to ignore. Except acting on his attraction throws everything Josh has been raised to believe out the window. 

Plagued by fear and self-doubt, they finally surrender, placing their trust in each other and their undeniable connection. But facing the world together takes the sort of faith that will either strengthen their bond…or shatter its very foundation.

I have been on a real YA streak lately and when I read the blurb for this one, I know I had to add it to my list. I sounded absolutely perfect to me and guess what ?? It really was !! I absolutely loved this sweet, but also a bit angsty, slow burn.

Those of you who are not a fan of insta love are definitely gonna love this one, because these two guys really take their sweet time… I kept screaming at them to kiss !!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor kiss already gif

In the back of their heads, Brennan and Josh have always known there was something more between the two of them than friendship.  ever since they spend some time together at camp. But with both of them being so young still and Brennan just being adopted into his new family, not to mention Josh’s extremely religious parents, neither of them really gave it a second thought. Until now that is…

cuteness...

Both of them are adults now and neither of them has ever dated a girl….and they are finally starting to fully realize why. But realizing why doesn’t make things any easier for them. Brennan is afraid his adoptive family won’t want him anymore and Josh has been lectured enough about homosexuality enough to know his family will never accept him being gay

But the heart wants what it wants and these boys definitely want each other !!

These two were so adorable together. Seeing them make a connection and fall in love….discovering each other in all ways. It took them a while, but that first kiss was definitely worth the wait. So sweet and so hot 😉 

 But as they grew closer and more and more in love, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop…because it always does.

It did of course but it wasn’t all as bad as I thought it would be. I know this author can do really angsty when she wants to, but this book was pretty mild…at least I feel that way. Then again, I am a big angst-lover…

I highly recommend this one !!

Dear Skylar,

Five years. That’s a long time to go without talking to somebody, especially someone who was such a huge part of your life…

A letter from my first kiss and my childhood everything…from prison.

He may be nicknamed Saint, but this sweet, sexy biker most definitely has a wild streak. Hearing from him draws me right back into the Knights of Fury motorcycle club—the people I’ll always think of as family.

He’s still the only man I’ve ever wanted.

Each good, old-fashioned letter from my “prison pen pal” has my heart racing. Which is nothing compared to how I feel when Saint surprises me in person, as a free man.

I was just a kid the last time we saw each other, but the connection between us now is anything but innocent.

He’s the type of man who would do anything to protect his woman. And with my world crashing down around me, that’s exactly what I’m going to need.

This book is approximately 67,000 words
Please note: This book is part of the Knights of Fury MC series but can be read as a stand-alone.

I love biker books…and so I had to give this new MC series by Chantal a try. I am glad to say that I enjoyed it very much and I will definitely have my eye out for the second book. 

Skylar is the youngest of 6 and also the only girl. She is also the only one from a different father, though her mother won’t tell her who her real father is. That’s okay though because she has an awesome stepfather. Hammer is the president of The Knights of Fury MC and a great father to Sky, and that’s a good thing because her mother is pretty much the opposite of great…

you are a bitch gif - Google zoeken

Which she proves, when she takes Sky away from everything and everyone she has ever loved, when her relationship with Hammer does not work out. 

Sky is devastated when she has to say goodbye to the only father she has ever known…and to Saint, the only guy she has ever loved. She has had a crush on Saint for as long as she can remember and even though she is 5 years younger than him…he never made her feel like she was unwanted or a burden. He didn’t mind hanging with her. 

After her mom took her away, she never heard from any of them though…It seems like they just forgot about her and didn’t really care. 

an envelope gif - Google zoeken

Now 5 years later, a letter from Saint is gonna show her that things aren’t always as they seem…and her mom is a bigger bitch than she thought. 

I really liked Saint and Sky together, they were pretty sweet and hot. That said…I could have done with a bit tougher and feistier heroine, but that is just my personal preference. Maybe the next book will give me my perfect heroine…you never know 😉

I love a good “enemies to lovers” story and this one definitely hit the right spot. It has been a long time since I have read anything by this author, I believe “Charged” was the last book. I don’t have a specific reason as to why, but I do know that I will be checking out every book in this series 😉

I also really liked the side-characters in this book, and since some play a part in a previous series, I will have to check those out as well. So looks like I’m gonna be busy.

Aspen and Case have known each other since high school. He was de sweet, yet popular jock and she was the new kid…the weird girl. Despite their differences Case was always kind to her and she never forgot.

But people grow up and life doesn’t always turn out as expected and when Case’s wife wants a divorce and custody of their child…Aspen is the lawyer that represents her…and wins the case. This pretty much cements the future (hateful) relationship between Case and Aspen…

enemies gif - Google zoeken

Things aren’t always as they seem though and these two are about to find out….especially Case. 

When Aspen is the victim of vandalism and violence, Case has no choice but to get up close and personal with his nemesis. He is the town sheriff after all, and not wanting to be like his corrupt dad…he will have to do his job, even if he hates the victim

But nobody probably told him that love and hate are only separated by a very fine line…

Gerelateerde afbeelding

….Don’t worry, he is about to find out himself.

I really enjoyed reading this story but I have to admit that the ending threw me a bit. I have read other reviews of people who feel the same way, so I know it isn’t just me. This book is already pretty heavy on the drama and I think that last bit was just a bit too much, at least for me. That said, it was still very good

I’m really looking forward to the next story…I hope it will be Kody’s 😉

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.

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 !!!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor adorable gif

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!”

NEVER SAY NEVER
Sadie Gold is ready to take her career to the next level with the role of a lifetime. Finally, she can shake her reputation as a pretty face with more wealth and connections than talent. But Sadie is not prepared for the wild turn her own life is about to take. The man in charge of training Sadie for her most demanding role yet is none other than her first real boyfriend—the one who took her heart and ran away.

WHEN IT COMES TO LOVE
Bo Ibarra is as good-looking and irresistible as ever. Maybe even more so, now that everything once worked against them—Sadie’s pampered and privileged upbringing and Bo’s childhood in a family struggling to make ends meet—is in the past. But the future is still unwritten…and getting there, together, means coming clean about painful secrets and slashing through nasty tabloid rumors while trying to control the attraction that crackles between them. Maybe it’s finally time for them to walk off into the sunset and into a true and lasting love?

These two are not the same people they were years ago and maybe…they can work things out. The sparks are certainly still there 😉

Tula Gomez is in the most ruthless prison in Latin America.

She only drove to Mexico to help her sister. She did nothing wrong.
But her quiet life changed in an instant.

To survive the violent, cartel-controlled prison where men blend with women, she pledges her loyalty to the notorious leader in exchange for the one thing she needs most.
Protection.

When she agrees to seduce the suspicious new inmates, Martin Lockwood and Ricky Saldivar, she doesn’t expect to enjoy it. Sure, they’re gorgeous, irresistibly alpha, and insanely talented with their hands and mouths. But they’re the enemy. She can’t fall for them.

Torn between her cartel loyalties and two men who want her as deeply as they want each other, she questions who is manipulating whom. Her search for answers leads to a passionate ménage, a soul-crushing secret, and an impossible choice.

Ever since reading the previous book Take, I have been on pins and needles to read Ricky and Martin’s story.  I have to be honest though, I was a tad bit disappointed when I found out that there was gonna be a lady between these two hot men. Everyone knows how much I love my MM books 😉 No worries though.. I still got mine 😛

939303c32e45e5cbfb11fe8b88c10b35.jpg (437×600)

Thankfully, my disappointment didn’t last too long, since Talu was a pretty amazing heroine. I love how strong she was … and believe me she needed to be. This is a pretty dark series and this book is no exception. Right from the start, Tula is subjected to the most horrible of crimes…by those who are supposed to protect !!!

In a flash, she went from being a law-abiding English teacher to being an inmate in one of Mexico’s most dreaded prisons…and all in the name of sisterly love.

In order to survive, she is forced to say goodbye to her former self and become cold and vacant.

To survive, she needed to become like them.  

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor broken inside gif

She makes a move that saves her life…but it also forces her to become part of the La Rocha Cartel…. the one her mother always warned her to stay away from. Being a teeny tiny woman in a prison full of (horny) dangerous men…she doesn’t have much of a choice though. So she says goodbye to the Tula of old.

She wasn’t prepared for Ricky (and) Martin though…then again…who would have been Yowza !!

Martin and Ricky are two of Van’s former (sex) victims and are now part of a group fighting the good fight, and trying to stop as many sex traffickers as they possibly can. They volunteered to be locked up for three months to try and take down the La Rocha Cartel from the inside.

It’s no secret that these boys are really close…closer than is normal for best friends and if it were up to Ricky, they would be even closer 😛  But Martin doesn’t seem interested in Ricky…or any other man (or woman) for that matter. So Ricky has almost given up…almost.

Thankfully Ricky is not a quitter because thanks to a little help from Tula, he is about to find out just how much Martin really wants him….and her. This book was HOT… !!

It was also chock full of triggers and the angst was slapping me in the face from beginning to end.

This was definitely one of my favorites in the series, though Van will always be top dog for me. He had a really nice part in this one as well…which made me a very happy camper.

I also want to give some credit to a certain character I started out hating with a vengeance, but who earned my forgiveness …and even a bit of my respect 😉

I highly recommend this series !!!

Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.

Let me start this review by saying that you will absolutely need to read the prequel novella, The Fallen: Genesis, before you can start this one. Now it’s pretty awesome, so it’s not like it will a chore. I myself really enjoyed it and it definitely left me with hundreds of questions and a craving for more…

intrigued gif - Google zoeken

So…those of you who have already met “The Fallen“, know who Raphael is. He is one of the 7 men in the brotherhood of murderers. He is the man with the face of an angel…but don’t let his good looks fool you 😛 

An angel he is definitely not….especially since strangulation is what really get’s his blood pumping…Even cutting off the blood supply to his own finger gives this guy a hard-on. 

Like all the others, Raphael has his own bloodthirsty fantasy…and his new mission has led him right to it…or I should say her.

Dorothy Wieck, 1933

Maria is everything he has ever wanted…to be with..and to kill

She is pure and innocent and the perfect bait for The Brethren to use against Raphael.  They know about his ultimate fantasies…they know what he dreams of.

Maria is was the exact opposite of Raphael….and yet…she was perfect for him. She was his Rose

She is just as broken as he is inside. I actually felt so sad for both of them. 

“She would be the saint to his sinner. The light to his dark. The chastity to his lust”

How can he just pass up a chance to fulfill his utmost fantasy…he just can’t. 

strangulation gif - Google zoeken

I was absolutely intrigued once again, by this book. That said, I do have to be honest and say that this series does bore some resemblance to the Hades Hangmen series. Not that I’m complaining about that fact, because I love that series. 

That said, The Hades series is still my favorite so far, especially Ky 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1 …but who knows what will happen in the future. I am particularly curious about Michael’s story, so far he is my favorite and I have good feelings about him and his book 😉

EXCERPT

Father Murray’s eyes locked on the woman again as she was released from the metal cage and brought into her lover’s embrace. The man slammed his mouth against hers and thrust his fingers into her overused pussy. They were dressed in scandalous leather outfits that did little to conceal their bodies. Father Murray’s lip curled in disgust. The man pulled back and made for the bar. His slut’s cheeks were flushed, and her lips were swollen from the claiming kiss. She had red marks littering her body like the witch she was. Bruises and gashes from whips and chains and whatever else the male sinner had used on her flesh.

Flesh that belonged to the Lord, not her. Flesh that she was defiling, making a mockery of.

As Father Murray sipped on his water, he noticed the whore was walking to the bathrooms. His eyes tracked her across the room, then scanned the club for any sign that someone else would follow. But the heathens were too busy fornicating to notice or care. His heart kicked into a sprint; she was alone in the bathroom. He squeezed the bottle of water until it was crushed beneath his grasp.

Father Murray’s skin burned as he watched the door of the bathroom. His muscles tensed so tightly they felt as though they would snap. His eyes misted with red . . . and then he was moving. He let the Lord fill his senses and gave over control.

Do with me what you will. Use me as your vessel to destroy the evil walking this earth.

As quick as a shadow, Father Murray turned the knob of the bathroom door and walked inside. The whore stood in front of the mirror, wiping a cloth along her rancid pussy. She turned her eyes his way. What first seemed like shock at the interruption turned into heated interest.

“Can I help you?” Her voice was all seduction. The voice of the devil, Father Murray thought. A living temptation trying to sway me from the path.

It would only make her cleansing all the more powerful.

Father Murray licked his lips and pushed his jaw-length dark hair from his eyes. He saw the whore’s eyes flare. That was the reason he was picked for these missions. Father Quinn had told him God gave him his looks and body for this very reason. To ensnare impure sluts and send them to the depths of hell where they belonged and would dwell for eternity.

Silently, Father Murray turned, giving the slightest nudge of his head in instruction for her to follow. He didn’t look back, and the thumping music from the speakers in the club meant he couldn’t hear her high-heeled feet on the floor. But he knew she would follow. It was God’s will.

These missions were the Brethren’s very reason for existing.

Father Murray exited out of the back door and down the winding fire escape stairs. A metal door plunged him into the darkness of the alley outside. He stopped against the wall and waited. He smirked when the fire door opened and the slut walked through. He watched as her eyes squinted in the dark, searching for him. She smiled when she caught sight of his intense gaze fixed on her. “You like privacy, huh?” she asked, coming to stand before him. “Not into public displays?” She smiled. “You should try it. There’s nothing like all eyes on you as you come.”

The whore ran her long fingernail down Father Murray’s chest. Her touch did nothing to him. There was no stirring in his cock, no satisfaction from her attention. The bitch had no idea what turned him on.

She would soon.

She dropped her hands to the fly of his pants and undid his zipper. Her tongue snaked out and licked along her too-white teeth. The whore was a demon wrapped in attractive female flesh.

But she wouldn’t make this man of God sin.

Father Murray grabbed the top of the whore’s arms, spun her, and smacked her back against the wall. An innocent soul would feel fear, dislike of the rough contact. But not this slut. She smiled, enjoying the pain Father Murray’s aggressive grip brought.

Heathen. A heathen who deserves to die.

“Are you gonna fuck me or what?” she whispered in his ear. The whore lifted her hand and flipped her hair back over her shoulder, aiming for seductiveness. Father Murray knew the movement was a message from the Lord. An invitation to strike, to do his work of ridding the world of sinners.

Father Murray smiled; the whore smiled back. He didn’t bother to tuck his cock back into his pants. Instead, he ran his hands over her hell-created curves, listening to her moan. His fingers roved over her small waist and up over her large breasts. Finally, his hands rested on either side of her neck. Father Murray stared right into the whore’s eyes. Leaning in close, he whispered, “You are a blight on the world. You have no place on this earth . . . and I shall be the holy warrior to send you back to the second level of hell.” Her eyes only had a second to flare with fear before Father Murray began to squeeze. The whore’s mouth dropped open as she quickly became starved of breath.

Father Murray hadn’t been aroused by the whore’s touch. But now, with his hands ridding her of life, his dick was hard and throbbing with the need to release. He panted as the whore’s body began to fight back. But she was too weak; he was too strong. He pressed his wide chest against her tits and pushed her hard into the wall. The friction of her skin against his erection only heightened his excitement. Father Murray rocked against the front of her bare pussy, his hands tightening and tightening until the whore’s eyes began to bulge. She clawed at his chest. But the battle, the pain she was trying to inflict on his pure soul, only made his hold around her neck tighten.

*Always Mine* by Sloane Kennedy

Title: Always Mine
Series: A Love in Eden Novel
Author: Sloane Kennedy
Genre: Gay Romance
Published: June 18th, 2019
Rating: 4 stars 

 

images (1) BLURB

I had one reason for never going back to the small town I once called home, but I never guessed it would be the same one that made me want to stay… 

Brooks 
I grew up in the small town of Eden, Wyoming, but never really felt like I fit in. 

Until I met the one boy who changed all that. 

When we were kids, Xavier Price understood horses, but somehow, he got me too. He’d made me feel like I wasn’t just the overdressed, too sensitive fifteen-year-old geek who loved math and didn’t always say the right thing. But all that changed the night he threw my trust back in my face and betrayed my family in the worst kind of way. 

And while I’m back in Eden to make sure my uncle’s horse ranch is operating in the black, the one thing I know I won’t have to deal with is the man who’d been on the verge of stealing my heart ten years ago. 

Because Xavier Price is still in prison for what he did and even if he weren’t, he wouldn’t be foolish enough to show his face in Eden ever again. 

Right? 

Xavier 
Wrong. 

That’s what returning to Eden after ten years behind bars feels like. But it wasn’t like I had a whole lot of choices. And it wasn’t like I was going to be handed any decent job offers, let alone my dream one of working with horses. 

But that’s exactly what happened and now that I’m foreman of Black Hills Ranch, I’m not letting this job go for anything. 

Not even the spoiled little rich kid I’d thought was different when he’d glommed onto me ten years ago. 

I have no doubt Brooks Cunningham didn’t wait long to move on to bigger and better things the second my jail cell was locked behind me, and that’s just fine by me. I’d been wrong about the sweet, emotional boy who’d had a habit of wearing his heart on his sleeve anyway. 

Except fate has decided to have another go at me by tossing Brooks right back into my sometimes too small world. Gone is the scrawny, stars-in-his-eyes nerd who used to do math problems just for fun. In his place is a gorgeous specimen of a man who thinks he can go toe to toe with me and once again destroy everything I’ve worked for. 

Not happening.

When I found out that one of my favorite MM authors was coming with a new series… it made me happy as a hippo.

happy hippo gif - Google zoeken

There haven’t been so many great MM books out this year…it is slim pickings to be honest and I gotta say, I really needed this.

When I read the blurb, I figured I was in for a world of angst, but this wasn’t really the case.

Xavier and Brooks were really good friends when they were in their teens. Different as they could be…they still formed some kind of instant connection. Brooks is a numbers boy, who loves solving math problems and the ranch owner’s son. Xavier is more of a hands-on kind of kid and he is the son of the ranch manager.

Where Xavier goes…Brooks goes until the ultimate betrayal happens….but who is the one betrayed ??

Fast forward 10 years and these two will have to face one another again. Both of them are still chocking on their hurt and the betrayal, but neither of them knows the real/full truth

No matter how much they try to hate and resent each other…their hearts have already chosen years ago…and what the heart wants, it will try to get.

https://www.google.nl/search?q=hot gay couple gif

These two have plenty of demons to fight, especially Xavier, but most of his past isn’t described in detail. There are mostly hints about why he is the way he is today. As far as triggers go, this is a very mild book, compared to what I have read in the past by this author.

It is mostly about loss, betrayal, overcoming your hurt and learning to trust again.

I really enjoyed reading this one, though I have to be honest and also admit that I am on pins and needles to read the next “protectors” book. I am a sucker for angst, drama and some darkness. Which is why that series (and the spin-off) will always be my favorite.

That said… I am very curious about the second book, and I hope it will be Jules’. I have a feeling I am gonna love that guy….and his love-interest 😉

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.

Lips-PNG-FileBLURB

In the power struggle between two elite groups, one feisty girl will bring them to their knees… 

Life is a cruel game where only the most ruthless survive. It’s a truth my mother rebelled against, and she paid for it with her life. Now, I play their game. Publicly accepting the destiny that lies in wait for me when I turn eighteen.

But, behind closed doors, I plot my escape. 

Trent, Charlie, and my twin, Drew, rule the hallways of Rydeville High with arrogance and an iron fist. I execute my role perfectly, hating every second, but they never let me forget my place in this world. 

Everyone obeys the rules. They have for generations. Because our families have always been in control.

Until Cam, Sawyer, and Jackson show up. Throwing their new money around. Challenging the status quo. Setting hearts racing with their gorgeous faces, hot bodies, and bad boy attitudes.

Battle lines are drawn. Sides are taken. And I’m trapped in the middle, because I made a mistake one fateful night when I gave my V-card to a stranger in a blatant F you to my fiancé. 

I thought it was the one thing I owned. A precious memory to carry me through each dark day.

I couldn’t have been more wrong. 

Because the stranger was Camden Marshall, leader of the new elite and my perpetual tormenter. He hates me with a passion unrivaled, and he won’t be the only one. Fire will rain down if the truth is revealed, threatening alliances, and the power struggle will turn vicious.

My life will hang in the balance.

But I’ll be ready, and I’m not going down without a fight

When I started this book I couldn’t believe I was reading about 17 and 18-year-olds. The Rydeville High school is ruled by the Elite, which consists of Abby and her twin Drew, Trent, and Charlie. They are considered the rich and powerful. Now Abby may be part of the Elite, but she doesn’t have much say. She is expected to listen and act accordingly. Most of the Elite, are already arranged to be married. And Trent, the dude Abby is supposed to marry, he really tops the asshole cake !!

Not wanting to give any of herself to her “fiancee”, she decides to give her innocence to a stranger…a savior of sorts. Someone she chose for herself…a moment she will always hold dear. There is not much else she can do though…she is stuck in the life she was born in. 

She doesn’t know that everything she knows is about to change…and she will come face to face with her savior again… Will he still be her savior though.

I love high school settings, and when they have bullies in them…even better !! I was a bit confused when I started this one though. For a minute I thought they were all much older, but then I figured they were just that screwed up. I can’t imagine my parents just giving me away in marriage because of family business and status… 

As much as Abby was stuck, she still tried to be as strong as she could be. I really admired her and I can’t wait to see what is gonna happen next. 

Fair warning….we’ve got another cliffy right here !!!

*Blog Tour* The Revenge Plan, by Linda Kage

Title: The Revenge Plan
Author: Linda Kage
Genre: Contemporary New Adult Romance
Release Date: April 29, 2019

transparent-silver-lipsBLURB

After I caught my boyfriend cheating, I tried to be mature about it with an amicable split. But he took his retaliation too far, and I have officially had enough. No more Miss Nice Haven.

No one is allowed to lie to me, betray, embarrass, and devastate me, fill me with self-doubt, or put my future at risk, and expect to get away with it. He is going to feel my wrath.

Enter Wick Webster, his archenemy.

Nothing would provoke my ex more than to see me moving on with the one guy he hates most, so that’s exactly what I plan to do.

The only hitch in my brilliant scheme is Wick himself. He’s just gotta be all love-not-war and peace-is-the-only-way. He’s more concerned about helping me heal than seeking my sweet revenge.And what the hell is it about his soothihg presence and yummy looks that calls to me until I forget how much pain I’m in? He’s making it awfully hard to use and abuse him for my malicious means. The damn guy is making me fall for him.

I really love Linda Kage’s Forbidden Men series and when I started this book, I had no idea that this was a spin-off of sorts. You see Haven is Sarah and Brandt’s daughter, and damn if that fact doesn’t make me giddy like a little girl !!!!

I loved Sarah and Brandt, they were awesome and I can honestly say that Haven definitely inherited their wonderful traits. She sure as hell is just as strong…well, Sarah might be a tad bit stronger 😛 

But that is nothing compared to Wick’s traits. OMG, I loved that man the moment I set my eyes on him (in my mind..you should see him…he is so HOT). He was so deliciously funny, we should all be blessed with a man like that.

Now this book is long…but it didn’t feel long to me. Maybe that’s because I was so freaking happy to be back into the world of some of my favorite characters again. I wasn’t bored for a second. I just got pulled into the story from the very first page and there was nothing I could do but finish it. I like my books to be a bit on the longer side. That way I feel like I actually have a chance, to get to know the characters. There is also something about this author’s writing style that really does it for me.

I can only hope that there will be more books like this to follow. I would love for all the offspring to get their own book… 

Now I think it’s re-read time again, because I really do miss my “Forbidden Men“.

“You guys are totally off your rockers. I am not having sex with anyone just to get back at Topher. To me, that’d be like drinking poison and expecting him to die from it.”
Bentley gasped, affronted, and pressed a hand to her chest. “Sex isn’t poison.”
I rolled my eyes because SHE hadn’t been cheated on recently.
“Seriously,” Teagan went on. “Sex can be good for you. It’s actually the number one reliever in vaginal atrophy.”
I blinked. “In…what?”
“Inflammation, dryness, and thinning of the vaginal walls.”
“Huh?” I furrowed my brow, wondering how I’d landed myself in a sex-education class.
“You must massage the tissue down there, exercise it regularly and get the blood flowing so it remains healthy and elastic. Otherwise, it’s going to dry out like an unused rubber band and crumble apart.” She balled her hand into a fist as if wadding up something. “Just a brittle piece of hopelessness.”
Ouch.
Why did I suddenly want to wince and protectively cover my hoo-ha with both of my hands? Seriously, I’d just found an old rubber band last week. It had dried up and fallen to pieces as soon as I had picked it up.
Lord, I didn’t want my vagina to crumble apart like that.
But then Bella—bless her soul—rolled her eyes and muttered, “Oh, whatever. She doesn’t need a man to get the blood flowing down there. My faithful BOB has kept me more satisfied and elasticized than any human douche ever could.”
Teagan merely shrugged. “It’s more fun with a real penis though. Just saying.”
“Wow,” Lucy murmured, shaking her head. “JB must have some kind of magical cock to make you talk this way because, before him, you were all like, eww, men are so overrated. Sex is gross. Keep it away from me.”
Lifting her chin, Teagan sniffed proudly and rubbed her swollen belly. “He does. It even sparkles in the sunlight.”
“Ack,” I cried, covering my ears with my hands. “It is so impossible to think of JB that way. He’s like a cousin to me, T.”
“You know, you don’t actually have to have sex with anyone,” Bentley spoke up, making me glance at her in confusion. “You just have to make Topher believe you did.”
“Or…” Bella countered. “As much of a showboat as Topher is, the best way to get back at him would be to just move on and be happy. I have a feeling him seeing you moving on without him might drive him crazier than anything.”




Linda writes romance fiction from YA to adult, contemporary to fantasy. Most Kage stories lean more toward the lighter, sillier side with a couple meaningful moments thrown in. Focuses more on entertainment value and emotional impact.
 
Published since 2010. Went through a 2-year writing correspondence class in children’s literature from The Institute of Children’s Literature. Then graduated with a Bachelors in Arts, English with an emphasis in creative fiction writing from Pittsburg State University.
 
Now she lives with hubby, two daughters, cat Holly, and nine cuckoo clocks in southeast Kansas, USA. Farm girl. Parents were dairy farmers. Was youngest of eight. Big family. Day job as a cataloging library assistant.
 
Harry Potter House Gryffindor, Patronus White Stallion, character match Hagrid. Supernatural Team Dean. Game of Thrones Team Jon Snow and Tyrion Lannister. The Walking Dead Team Daryl. Outlander Team Jamie Fraser. Teen Wolf Team Stiles. Avenger Team Thor…or Hulk (can’t decide). Justice League Team Flash. Arrow Team Stephen Amell. Stranger Things obsessed. Heard Laurel, not Yanny.
Started out reading with the Baby-Sitters Club. Then moved to Sandra Brown, Linda Howard, Julie Garwood, and LaVyrle Spencer in high school. Now all over the place with her romance reading tastes.
