Review of Hot Mess (Players #1) by Jaine Diamond

“Unicorn…” 

 

Genre:  Contemporary Romance

Length: 610 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person

Description:

Fate. Destiny. Karma… She’s mine.

It all started with a broken heart.
And a breakup party.
Rock stars. Circus freaks. And a bachelorette party.
Too. Much. Booze.
An embarrassing tattoo.
And a twist of fate.

Her name was Danny.

I thought she was The One.
But then I lost her.
And I never thought I’d see her again.
Now… I’m a mess.
I’ve had my heart broken—more than once.
And my band’s broken up.
I’ve sworn to myself that I’ll never fall in love again.
Time to focus on new music and my new band.

As soon as I sober up from my latest breakup party…

But then there she is.
Standing in the rain, looking at me.
My dream girl.
My destiny…
Danny.
I missed my chance with her once.
Maybe this time… I’ll get it right.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Danica knew Ashley thought she was her sister. She’d heard all about her make out session with him years before. But she couldn’t help wishing he’d really been interested in her.

“Me: I have faith in you. You brought me six pennies. Just do your thing”

If you’ve read the Dirty series you know who Ash is . He’s wound his woes throughout the books…and his dirty little tattoo secret that everyone found out about. He acted like he didn’t know who Danny was, but he knew. And he’d been looking for her for four years. Until one day while completely drunk in the rain he’d found her. Although to his dismay it wasn’t her. It was her twin.

Sober Ashley likes Danica way better than her twin sister, he just doesn’t want to get his heart broke again so he plays it cool. But he’s a bad liar.

Danica will remodel his home and freshen up his heart.

“… Come on. Be a man and show me the pink flower between your legs.”

Hot Mess described Ashely perfectly and in this book we get to see the nitty gritty version we’ve been waiting for. All his issues laid bare for everyone to read.

“”… Did you know he’s into dudes?”

“No,” she said, looking right pissed off. “But why should I be surprised? You make straight men bend over.””

I have to say I was a little disappointed in this book. I’d had high hopes for Ash and was expecting it to be as good as the Dirty series, but this one wasn’t. Maybe it was that Ashley carried way more issues than I was expecting or maybe it was Danica’s too lenient attitude, but it wasn’t my favorite.

Don’t get me wrong it’s still a great read and I look forward to the next Players novel. Although it looks like Xander is going to be entirely too far over his head.

PROMO: Reflections in the Dark by Carol Koman

Contemporary Romance – 156 Pages

About the Book:

As heiress to Tredeaux Industries, Aimee Tredeaux is a confident young woman, a trait landing her in trouble more than once. After obtaining an internship with Seattle Adventures in the hopes of impressing her stoic father, especially since he recently acquired stock, she makes the rash decision to try one of the adventures.

Although Aimee is set to inherit the family business, she still wants to prove her worth. The internship with Seattle Adventures is perfect, until she overestimates her abilities, risking her and her brother’s life, and earning the censure of Inteus Locklear, her new boss.

Considering how they meet, Tey finds the young beautiful heiress to be quite reckless, but one look into Aimee’s dark, luminous eyes reflecting the promise of light into his dismal world, he can’t resist pulling her into his arms. However, learning she is the daughter of the formidable Harrison Tredeaux is an unarguable reason to send her packing, yet he ignores his misgivings. And she puts herself in danger once again, forcing him to reconsider, especially since her father will remove him from the Earth if anything should happen to her! The only problem is the adorable maverick swings a campaign for his company that creates a media frenzy, one that would boost his sales back in the black.

Aimee hadn’t planned the way things were going–Heaven forbid! She didn’t plan on being reckless, she didn’t plan on her father being at odds with her new boss, and she sure as heck didn’t plan on falling in love. The man is so resolute at keeping her at arms-length–except, of course, when he stole kisses, but there is no denying her heart. Unfortunately, Tey’s acceptance is hindered by more than her father’s interference. Aimee sees he remains reserved by his own past–one he is troubled by more than he would admit even to himself.

Excerpt:

Tey felt a sudden stab of jealousy that it wasn’t him giving her comfort, and the emotion left a horrible taste in his mouth. He turned away, going into his kitchen where he stood looking out the window above his sink, listening to the two of them. He knew Aimee had lost someone she loved dearly as he overheard her muffled sobs and Reese talking in low tones to sooth her. Still not moving, and still not intruding, Tey could hear what had to be sounds of Aimee leaving with her father. He sighed heavily. Never mind he was never going to convince Reese he was good enough for his daughter, would he convince her?

“Inteus?”

Tey spun around at her quietly spoken use of his given name that sounded purely like her own declaration of love for him. She stood waiting—alone. “Aimee?”

“Will you take me?” she whispered brokenly.

In two big strides, Tey had Aimee wrapped tightly in his arms, offering the love and comfort she sought from him. “I’m sorry, love,” he encouraged softly, but inside he was reeling. She’d not left him to go with her father. She’d stayed and wanted his comfort.

Review of Save Grace (Blood Legion MC #2) by Rie Warren

“Do you want to kiss me?” 

 

Genre: Contemporary Romance, MC Romance, Suspense

Length: 228 Pages

POV: Alternating First Person

Description:

Something wicked hot this way comes.

SLADE
I was a Marine. An operative. A hardcore soldier. Something brought me to the Blood Legion MC in New Orleans, and now I’m a biker. Whatever drew me here is bigger than my own baggage, and it isn’t the CIA, or Force-Recon, or anyone else.

There’s a pull. Her name is Grace. She’s missing, possibly because of the MC and our haphazard raid on the White Lair. Grace is my new mission. An op. Nothing more.

Until I finally locate the gorgeous woman who has built an even bigger barricade around herself than I have, and I realize I’ll never be free of her.

GRACE
I don’t want to be found. Not by anyone. Not anymore. Not after what’s been done to me against my will. As if enslavement at the White Lair wasn’t enough.

It seems I don’t have a choice. I have a new client. He’s dark-browed, big all over, and broody beyond belief. This Killian Slade doesn’t force me. He doesn’t ask me to strip. He pays extra each time and he doesn’t even touch me. When he finds out the truth, he’ll hate me as much as I hate myself. Yet I can’t stop the hot hammering of my pulse where I’d only ever been hurt and used before—there’s a yearning to be with this singular man.

I want to wake up from this nightmare, but the nightmare is just beginning.

BLOOD LEGION MC:
Cry Mercy
Save Grace
No Saint
Get Revenge

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Killian Slade, ex-Marine, ex-CIA, lone wolf who made a promise to Mercy to find her friend, the only missing girl from the compound she’d been rescued from. Easier said than done. But Killian is a man of his word and come hell or high water he’ll keep his promise. Of course he only promised to find her, not tell anyone he did.

“I think I better go now. You’re too damn much of a temptation, and I’m not really a gentleman.”

Grace had gotten an upgrade from the hell she was in previously, but she was still a prisoner. Hope had never dared entered her mind, not until Killian entered her room. He wasn’t like the others. She trusted him, felt safe with him, and yet she kept a very big secret from him.

Killian wasn’t prepared for Grace. She was so much more than he could have ever imagined. And he wanted to keep her. Keep her safe. Keep her happy. Keep her protected. And keep her to himself.

“I don’t want you to risk your life like this.”

Save Grace is another amazing book by Rie Warren. It’s filled with action, suspense, pain, love. It was an emotional rollercoaster that I couldn’t put down. I had to see what was going to happen next. And I was not disappointed.

P.S. Rock it Miss Bunny!

Review of The Rogue King (Inferno Rising #1) by Abigail Owen

“I want to feel that again. Now.”

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shifter Romance, Suspense

Length: 448 Pages

POV: Third Person

Description:

Kasia Amon is a master at hiding. Who—and what—she is makes her a mark for the entire supernatural world. Especially dragon shifters. To them, she’s treasure to be taken and claimed. A golden ticket to their highest throne. But she can’t stop bursting into flames, and there’s a sexy dragon shifter in town hunting for her…

As a rogue dragon, Brand Astarot has spent his life in the dark, shunned by his own kind, concealing his true identity. Only his dangerous reputation ensures his survival. Delivering a phoenix to the feared Blood King will bring him one step closer to the revenge he’s waited centuries to take. No way is he letting the feisty beauty get away.

But when Kasia sparks a white-hot need in him that’s impossible to ignore, Brand begins to form a new plan: claim her for himself…and take back his birthright.

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Kasia is one sparky little phoenix. She pretends to be fearless in order to protect herself and her sisters. She’d do anything to keep them safe…even mate a dragon. Her father may have been a dragon, but her mother had taught her that they were the enemy. Talk about trying to trust an enemy.

“”Don’t give your trust too easily in this world. More often than not, people like me are out to harm you or use you.”

“Aren’t you trying to stop me from running away?” she pointed out. “You might want to work on your sales pitch.””

Brand was just doing his job. He found the girl, now he just had to bring her to his old friend and the Blue Dragon’s new king, Ladon. Problem with that was it seemed everyone was onto the trail of the phoenix and everyone wanted her for their own selfish reasons. Brand didn’t…or so he kept trying to convince himself.

“”Kasia kept pushing. “Look at how you handled our first meeting. Your instinct was to help me.”

Now he scowled. “My first instinct was to fuck you. Long and hard.””

Faced with a heavy choice Brand goes with the selfish decision, but fate has something different in store for him and for Kasia. And you can only fight fate so long before it becomes impossible to ignore.

The Rogue King is full of action, suspense, and one hell of a romance.

The Inferno Rising series is a spin off of the Fire’s Edge series. In the Fire’s Edge series I wondered what was going on with the dragon clan’s kings as it’s a slight part of the backstory and the Inferno Rising series sheds light on all those missing pieces. I cannot wait to read more of both series! Loving me some dragon shifters!

Review of Drawn to Darkness (Dark Desire #3) by Viola Calvary

“Never he’d told her…” 

 

Genre: Paranormal Romance, Suspense

Length: 225 Pages

POV: Third Person

Description:

Dahlia’s world hangs on the precipice of chaos as gods, demons, and monsters emerge from ancient legends. As enemy forces gather and a twisted new power emerges to consume the kingdom, Dahlia and Kenny might be the only hope of staving off disaster. But can Dahlia keep control as the power she wields threatens to drag her further into darkness? Or will she sacrifice everything to save the people she loves only to become the monster they fear?

The screams receded behind them as they darted through the dark forest, Dahlia running in Kenny’s footsteps to avoid hitting anything she couldn’t see. As they came closer to the spot they were to meet with the other soldiers she felt him stop and turn, movement impossibly graceful and at odds with his massive form. She stopped as well, facing him now in the dark, hyper aware of the scent of the forest around them, the taste of the cold wind laced with the scent of blood, and the rush that danced through their veins. It played between them, intensifying in that split second before he grabbed her, pulling her up against him.
The wild energy sung in her mind and she threw her legs over his hips to pull herself tighter against him. Her mouth found his as the captivating embrace of madness took them…

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author.*

Drawn to Darkness begins right where The Sage and The Savage left off. Dahlia and Kenny are trying to save their people, but being outcasts makes it a little difficult at times. They’ll be pushed beyond anything they’ve expected and darkness will reign.

Their love is the only thing that keeps any part of their sanity in tact. To others they are monsters and although they try not to be, in this book they’ll get to glimpse their unadulterated monstrous sides. Gods or not, no one will stand in their way.

“The same conviction that had washed over her in the woods when she’d told him not to leave her echoed through their minds again. Never he’d told her then. The word wasn’t even necessary now.”

From ravenous sex-capades to war and destruction this book was filled with so much action I had a very difficult time putting it down. As a matter of fact it was non-stop right until the cliffhanger ending. I may have screamed, “Is that seriously where it ends?!?!” Definitely looking forward to Dark Desire #4.
