R E V I E W ➠ Fallen Saint by Monica James

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!


BLURB

Just as this nightmare began, I once again find myself bound, destination unknown.Β However, this time,Β my kidnapper is the man who shattered my world beyond repair.
Aleksei Popovβ€”Russia’s number one mobster, and the man I was sold to.
His intentions for me are clearβ€”submit, obey him, and call him masterβ€”but I won’t surrender.Β I’m notΒ like the other girls. Whether that’s a blessing or curse, I’ve yet to decide. The problem is, myΒ disobedience intrigues my captor all the more.
When we arrive in Russia, the rules change.
Saint, the man who was once a sinner, is my only salvation.Β What was forbidden now gives me hope thatΒ there is light in the darkness. He will risk everything to set me free.
But behind these opulent walls, things aren’t what they seem, and when the fine line between pleasureΒ and pain begins to blur, only one thing mattersβ€”saving my soul.
I will lie.
Cheat.
Steal.
I was once an angel, but now… I’m a fallen saint, ready to inflict my own pain and burn this hellhole toΒ the ground.


…..

A single word in a cursive font tattooed on my flank. Saint was a sinner, and now, thanks to his name, I’m a saint.

This is not my first review by the author. I also have read Book #1 from this, and let me tell you…I am not one for cliffhangers but I read the first book anyways, and I could not wait for this one!!!
I want to say that I fell in love with Willow in book 1 and here i am again, even more in love with her. Her characters, her actions…her feelings….give ME ALL THE FEELS! Book 1 was just preparing me for this one, I have been on the edge waiting for this and now I don’t know how to express my love for this book enough! It was everything I needed and wanted it to be! Monica James did not disappoint!
Now this is a little bit of a love triangle and yes I know I always say those are hard for me to read, but this isn’t in the sense of it but has the feel of it at times. I can’t explain it well enough but if I enjoyed it then you know. This DARK ROMANCE duo is everything, PREPARE yourself now that both are out, BING-READING time for sure!! The ending though…oh my heart *sigh* talk about having an emotional meltdown and reading faster on the edge to find out what will happen….don’t want to spoil it but PRE-PARE! Nothing is as it seems!

BLURB

Denver’s hottest CEO is about to meet his match.

Billionaire workaholic Jasper Bergen calls the shotsβ€”and that’s just the way he likes it. Period.

As CEO of Bergen Enterprises, he’s dedicated his life to keeping his family’s mountain sports empire profitable. But sales have plateaued, and the company needs a jumpstart.

Enter Elle Reynolds.

She’s a bestselling travel writer whose celebrity adventurer status makes her the perfect choice to boost the company’s public image.

The perfect choice to everyone but Jasper.

Hired by the company’s founders, he has no choice but to work with the free-spirited author.

And while they clash at every turn, Elle can’t quit. Her accountant has swindled her out of millions, and she needs this job to get back on her feet.

But Jasper and Elle may have more in common than they think.

Thanks to their busy schedules, neither’s dated in ages.

Each is experiencing a sexual famine that can only be remedied by a feastβ€” a MAN FEAST.

When they agree to a no-strings night of passion, their sexual chemistry is off the charts.

And these two opposites soon realize there’s a fine line between love and hate.

Artists should pain this man. Sculptors should carve him out of marble. No longer clean shaven, Jasper Bergen with a little stubble was the definition of sexy on a stick. -Elle






⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

This is not my first read, I’ve had the honor of reading every single book this author has put out, well form the beginning, all 5 from the first series Langley Park and now this new series. That means I have already read Book #1, and will say that Krista has been one of my very firsts when I started bookstagramming, I enjoy her books so much I can’t wait for more!

Right off the bet, the book dives in. Where Elle is sitting in front of a high-priced attorney…not for the reason you may think. Her A-hole of a assistant did unspeakable things where Elle is not left with nothing to her name except what was paid up-front and is actually to her name. That doesn’t leave her much, so the deal she has with Bergen Enterprises she really can not miss out on that. It will help her, her mother and of course get her back on her feet.

Jasper Bergan, what do I say about this broody hunk of sexiness! Well that, and he is very responsible and hahaha Elle throws him off kilter. It’s the best thing ever! A big man like him, finally meeting his match in a lot of ways. Even though at the beginning he does a fantastic job of denying and putting his feeling or anything regarding Elle off.

The adventurous, the places, Krista is very good with details not too much and just enough to suck you right in a story. Her characters are always very well written, I think I enjoyed both of them in here. I always love me some broody sexy CEO man, duhh! Am i right?! Finally the stuffy suit wearing man let’s the carefree author show him what it feels to be carefree. Even their love making is unique, sexy yes but unique. He calls her by her full name and middle name which is so adorable and so Jasper. They are ALSO SWEET TOGETHER, he can really SWOON anyone, even if he is a stuffy-suit-wearing man. Their opposite attracts is magical! I think i really fell in love with that, not to mention the fact that they happen to have something so in common….*SIGH* no spoilers don’t worry!!

I really love these two together, something different and yet even the different sometimes the soul isn’t so much. If you want some fun, adventure, sexy and ALL THE FEELINGS, this is for you!!

R E V I E W ➠ The Celtic Cowboy by Jessica Marin

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, Novella

Adeline Murphy
In Texas, two things are gospel – football and rodeos. Growing up as the daughter of a football legend made me practically royalty, but it’s not a crown I’m interested in. Football life isn’t for me, no matter how hard my family pressures me with their motto of β€œIf you can’t be them, marry them.” Living in the shadow of my football star brothers was exhausting and I eventually became invisible all together. I bide my time working at my family’s car dealership until I gather up the nerve to tell them that I’m living life on my own terms. I have my own dreams and they don’t include marrying a football player or a cowboy.Β 
My resolve was strong, until a cocky Celtic cowboy sauntered into my life. Ryan Kearney might not wear a football jersey, but wearing a cowboy hat and chaps was just as lethal. Devilish good looks with a mouth that could even charm the panties off a nun, I knew I was in trouble when he set his sights on me.

Ryan Kearney
As an up and coming bull rider, I’ve learned that rodeo life is grueling, but it’s the life I’ve chosen. The pounding of your heart and the thunder of applause that rings in your ears when that buzzer calls out the end of the eight seconds is a sound like no other. My dream to be a professional bull rider in the American Pro Rodeo Circuit is finally becoming a reality when my brother and I leave Ireland to compete for our shot at Nationals in Las Vegas. If I want the title of the best bull rider in the world, being mediocre isn’t enough. To be the best, you have to beat the best, which requires me living, breathing and sleeping rodeos. Being in a committed relationship isn’t even on my radar. So I do casual relationships and it seems my notoriety as the Playboy Cowboy preceded me to America. What can I say? The ladies love cowboys and I love the ladies.
Charming them into bed is my second favorite pastime, so when the warm brown eyes of Adeline Murphy lock on mine and burn with yearning, I know I have her right where I want her. Except I don’t. The sexy spitfire seems immune to my charm and makes me work hard for her attention.Β 

The chase has become a game – one that I’m determined to win and to make her mine. I wasn’t looking for forever, but I can’t imagine my life without her.Β 


Release Date: June 26, 2019


Ryan: I can’t wait to see your gorgeous face in the stands today. Dinner with your family after?
Me: Hell No! Straight to the hotel for congratulatory sex on your huge victory.
Ryan: My kind of woman.


⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by author, I have officially read every single book so far!

Ryan Kearney is the younger brother of Rhett, where Rhett is handsome in a rugged way, Ryan is on the pretty side if you wish. Having slept through half of Dublin, he and his brother are heading to America to compete in the Pro Rodeo Cowboy Circuit. A dream really, so this was a very exciting time for Ryan…could almost have been even more in the mile high club if his brother didn’t pull the responsible card on him. It’s going to be a LONG 9 months!!

Adeline is a girl who is pretty much always around family, she is there to work, help and just be. It is perfectly fine until she decided she is going to follow her own dreams, that don’t involve working for her family any longer. Easier said than done!

One evening changes it all, a meet and some sassy fiestiness later….what can go wrong? So this is where it would be great if you read Book #1 BUT no worries, this one gives out enough back-story and info that you will be fine. What I love about this book is that Adeline does not give…not an inch and makes Ryan work for it. Their situation is no ideal, considering why Ryan is in the States and the rules his brother made. Also Adeline, she has a plan, remember…yeah, ALL’S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR! is all I am going to say!!

A QUICK SLOW BURN, but very SIZZLING once there! *fanning self*

R E V I E W ➠ Resist by K. Bromberg

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!, TOP 2019 MUST READ


BLURB

Who says you have to play by the rules to get what you want?

Agreeing to meet Ryker Lockhart is my first mistake. Rich, handsome, and more than intriguing, he thinks blackmail will bend me to his will.

But he’s wrong.

I may have done a few things that weren’t exactly legal, but I have my own reasons for that. The last thing I’m going to do is let some high-powered divorce attorney come into my life, have my body, and rule my heart. Not to mention ruin everything that I have carefully built in just a short amount of time.

But as much as I try to resist him, and against my better judgment, there is something about him that has me agreeing to his proposal.

I’m putting everything on the line for him. I just hope I won’t lose everything when this is all over.


Release Date: July 30, 2019
ARC provided by: NetGallery / SocialButterfly PR





She tastes like wine and resistance. A resistance not to the kiss but to me, and fuck if it doesn’t turn me on more.



⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

First off, K. Bromberg is a huge favorite author of mine. Been reading her books and actually have read every single one, so far.

Vaughn is a BADASS woman!! From the very first pages, you’ll see why. I instantly fell in love with her character. After taking care of a little problem, Vaughn finds herself in the company of the handsome Ryker Lockhart.

Interesting choice of career for Vee (can’t say, I don’t do spoilers) but a brave one at that. But Vee has a goal, a plan…soon she will be able to hop that fence over to the green side.

Vaughn is a woman who wants to do the right thing, knows how to hustle to get though life but is still a woman… with feelings even if she hides behind that facade. Her childhood was beautiful, until she lost her mother, it all spiraled from there with well i can’t say but a lot. Be prepared to be surprised by Vaughn on every turn.

Now Ryker, is a peculiar creature. A successful high rise divorce attorney that not only has the money but power. Big names, big clients and always men only clients. His issues run deep and something that may not have been as dramatically as Vee’s but not less influential. I have to say that he is the ultimate-bookhusband because your pants will be swooned off. As arrogant and blunt he is, he is still alpha, in control yet reasons with Vaughn over the power.

Power struggle? Absolutely! But when Vaughn let’s her guard down even for a second, gosh it is beautiful. Secret’s are revealed, a sweet moment of unicorn scenes (will melt your heart) and danger. If you’ve read Bromberg before you know her style, so this is exactly what I would want from one of her books & more. I can’t really say much to be honest, it would be a huge shame to spoiler alert this because it’s worth a full focus read!! You’ll be hooked, I couldn’t stop and kept reading faster then slowing down because I didn’t want it to end. The ending, I kind of want to say I was expecting it but I did not expect how it happened. Shame on your Ryker!! I’m going to say this once and then deny it if anyone else asks me again but….I think i loved this book even more than DRIVEN *goes to hide under desk so lightning doesn’t strike me* phew, nothing yet! That said, this is huge and I am very much looking forward to BOOK #2!

p.s. Now, don’t get me wrong I know there were cover reveals of TWO books (hell I even took a photo just for it) but my stupid-head didn’t comprehend until i realized this is a CLIFFHANGER! *sigh*

R E V I E W ➠ Million Dollar Marriage by Katy Evans

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review



BLURB
If someone had bet Nell a million dollars that she would be saying β€œI do” to a complete stranger on national television, she’d have called them crazy, but with her crushing student loan payments sending her deep into the red, she’s out of options. This should be nothing more than a business transactionβ€”until she sets eyes on her groom, and everything changes.
The game is on the instant Luke spots Penelope β€œNell” Carpenter. He’s out for the money, yes, but getting a little dirty with Nell doesn’t sound too bad either. Everyone knows he’s not the marrying kind, so it’s a good thing it’s just for show. God knows he’s the worst guy his pretty wife should pick for real.
They have nothing in common, but if they want the grand prize, they’ll have to beat out eight other couples. Proving that total opposites attract should be easy enough…as long as they don’t fall in love in the process.

COMING: JULY 23RD

I need her like the air I breathe.
And I’ll be damned if I’m waiting until December 17 to tell her that.



⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

You know I believe I have read Katy Evans before but this was before I officially started a bookstagram so I don’t remember fully BUT I have been looking forward to reading this, also HOW GORGEOUS is that cover! *sigh*

This is a GAME SHOW book! THE MILLION DOLLAR MARRIAGE. I usually watch those so to read it, let’s just say I don’t get to too often and it was quiet fun to read. I have not read book #1 so kind of went in blind but I wasn’t worried about that because this book gave me enough to understand everything.

A opposite-attract because Nell and Luke couldn’t be more different. Nell is a shy nerd that has been working hard in her life to…well get a lot of degree’s but just not too sure on what she wants to settle with, hence needing the money, to pay off her loans. Luke on the other had who run’s his grandpa’s bar is A PARTY MAN, life of the party so to say. Rough, edgy and tattooed…but secret….he has a heart of gold. He needs the money to pay for his grandma’s facility and care. So what do they do, ummm marry a total stranger on live TV! Duhh!

When lines get crossed and blur…both Luke and Nell share this amazing chemistry, raw and just plain real! They must fight together against 8 other couples. The plot was great, a little as expected so it was a little predictable for me. All the characters were good, I especially loved Nell but Luke was right there with his bad-boy persona that holds that golden heart! Slow burn for sure so beware but the working up to it was great. I had a lot of fun reading this, lot’s of laughter and action.

R E V I E W ➠ It’s Not Over by Kaylee Ryan and Lacey Black

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!


Gwen

Lately, life definitely isn’t how I envisioned it. I had it all. The house, the job, the husband. Until one day, I didn’t. I don’t know when exactly things started to change between us, only that it did, and in a big way. So much so, I found myself standing before a judge and signing off on the end of my marriage. To the only man I’ve ever loved. 

Now, he’s back, fighting, and ready to prove to me that we made a mistake, that our love is worth giving this another chance. I’m not sure if he’s right, but I know what my heart wants, and it wants him. My ex-husband.

Harrison

Why is it that you don’t know the depths of your mistakes until you’ve already made them? I knew signing those papers was a bad idea, but I thought that’s what she wanted. The minute we stepped foot out of that courtroom, it hit me. She’s no longer mine.

That’s when I also realized that I would do anything to change the past. I have so many regrets. Not her. I could never regret her, but how we ended. We never should have ended. I’m in for the battle of my life to convince her to give us another shot. I have a plan, one that will prove to her that it’s not over.

“You kept my name,” I whisper, leaning in a little closer.
“Yeah, I just–”
She looks down for three heartbeats. I know because I counted them before she gives me her sad eyes. “I wanted to keep a piece of you, and piece of us.”



“You’re not exactly a big fan of bookstores.”
I shrug. “I’m a Winnie fan. Besides, I need a book myself.”



⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

This is not my first read by either author, I am familiar with their writing styles. That said, let’s jump right in because not only is the cover GORGEOUS but this story is a bit different than your usual!

Not your usual because it kind of starts from the end. When that paper is signed separating Gwendolyn and Harrison not just with each other but in the eyes of the law and god…that’s that. The end…GAH my heart guys, this was hard to read because it’s so realistic. This book is the highlight of SECOND-CHANCE romances for so many reasons!

Even though his best friend Chase is an asshole, the man has a point, either move on or fight for her! Makes sense right, well in this case when you set your mind to something especially Harris…what will he do when a wrench is thrown in the situation. What follows in events of life, anger, passion, secrets, lies and love…in all the messed up ways, still love. You wait, you will be IN LOVE with the hero Harrison, his swooning is on another level!

I don’t want to give out to much but will say that it was a one sitting read for me and it was beautiful but also hard to read, again, something about it that grips you and keep you hanging until you jump or sink! I think I was little frustrated by Gwendolyn because of her reasoning, but then again I also understood it in a little form. It was a fight for me in this book, as far as the plot and story go that was very smooth and also the transitions. Very well written and I enjoyed it, I hope Chase is next!k p.s. GINA is a bitch!

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!, TOP 2019 MUST READ

Contemporary fairy tales with a dirty, sexy twist!
How far would you go to make the man that destroyed your family pay?

Maddux Wilder is a man consumed, a beast in a three-piece suit. Rich and powerful, he built his empire with one thought in mind: revenge.

After years of patience and planning, the wait is finally over. Tonight, Maddux will finally watch Theodore Cole’s kingdom crumble. At a lavish ball in the New York City castle the Wilder siblings call home, the man that killed their parents will atone for his sins. 

If only he’d planned for her. 

Arabella Cole is Theodore’s only child; his cherished and sheltered daughter. She’s an innocent, captivating beauty that would do anything to save her loving father, including sacrificing herself. 

With her freedom gone, she must surrender to a man she hates. A man that makes her want things she shouldn’t. A man that awakens deep, forbidden desires. 

But everyone knows that roses don’t bloom in darkness. 

Enter Maddux Wilder, a man that doesn’t believe in fairy tales. 

Can the beauty tame the beast or will revenge cost them both everything that matters most?

“He’s right, Bella. ‘m vindictive, merciless. And fucking ruthless.”



“Or maybe you’d like to sass me one more time and find out what I’d like to do to that warm, lush mouth to remind you who is in charge here?”


⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

Not my first read by the author, am very familiar with the style and absolutely enjoyed each book I’ve read from the author.

This book starts off strong and with insta action. Maddux Wilder Meets Arabella at a formal outing, where he proceeds to not be able to stay away from her. So they dance…I really love when a hero swoons in an alpha way, even form the beginning Maddux does that. Only for it to end with the village idiot interrupting! The trick is that Maddux is out for revenge, while Arabella is trying to still find herself in the whole ‘the mess my father has made my whole life.

Arabella is a brave one because she make a deal…THE DEAL…basically a deal with the devil himself. All to try and save her father, she was so brave. Just when Maddux thinks he got himself a sheep…she shows her real stripes and is strong, sassy and again very brave for someone in her statue. This book will have you sizzling, Maddux is not only ruthless and alpha but he enjoys outing punishments as well as pleasure if you know what I mean *smirk* that said, the sex scenes are off the charts hot! You know in some sense you will swoon in the too, it;s the best of both world with this hero!

But Maddux is out for retribution not playing house or having ‘feelings’. When you find out the why, you’ll understand that that man who is now ruthless, has no other way TO feel. It’s a beautiful story of revenge, danger, passion and love. This is the kind of book that I LOVE TO READ! Also why I love the authors books.

What happens when one innocence learns the real filthy and dirty? EXPLOSIVE ENDING is all I can say, be ready…it’s like being on the edge of a cliff and that feeling of almost falling…fan-freaking-tastic, a rush!! So many emotions from both characters, the truth did not set anyone free in this one but just made more realization.

Leaving had been the last thing I wanted to do, but I couldn’t stay. Not when all I wanted to do was get wrapped up in her .


⇨ R E V I E W ⇦

I have read this author before but this is the first official review. Therefore a single-mom and older brothers best friend kind of romance is always intriguing to me, so here we are!

The beginning will gut you, the feelings, the words, the meaning behind them…that was deep!! I hurt for Saylor, but when she couldn’t lie to herself anymore, she makes a deciscion without looking back. Literally.

From The Book:
The only serenity I had existed in the ten seconds between the foggy haze of sleep and awareness. -Saylor

When she finally sees Jace again, memories on the first kiss mishap came flooding right back. But that way many moons ago, and besides they are adults now. She was mourning her husband, not trying to think about Jace. Right? Little did she know, both souls share an unfortunate fate. *got tissue* I really meant when I said this is highly emotional, I was not prepared for it at all. Realistic in a sense of feelings and actions.

This is a slow burn, beautiful in a sense that two souls are drawn to one another but have so much dark and baggage that maneuvering around is work on it’s own. I enjoyed the characters, I especially loved the hero Jace. I was okay with the heroine Saylor but her indecisiveness was a little too far off for me, and yes I know what kind of book this is, I am just saying that I had a little harder time connecting with her on a level. That said, this book will bring out all the emotions, so watch out! The ending was SO BEAUTIFUL GUYS, *sigh*

R E V I E W ➠ Reckless by Evelyn Montgomery

June 2019 Review

R E C K L E S S

He’s rough, arrogant, sexy and irresistible as hell. The stereotypical ladies man that I swore I’d never fall for. He stole my heart once before when we were kids, and I promised myself I would never give it to him again. 
One night, a few drinks and memories neither one of us could escape lands me right back to where it all started, or should I say ended. But when push comes to shove, will he be ready to hear the truth about our past and face the secret I’ve been holding in for over 10 years? Or will he run like I always knew he would? The one reason why I never let myself get too close to him again. As they say, tigers can’t change their strips, and I won’t let him make a fool out of me trying. 
She’s stubborn, hot-headed and has a temper worse than any woman I have ever met before – but damn it if that doesn’t just make me want her more. Like an idiot I let her walk away from me before, but hell if I will let myself make that mistake again. She’s mine, and I won’t stop until she knows it. 
But moving forward means facing the demons in my past. The secrets I’ve never told her about that one night 10 years ago I planned to promise her forever and never showed up. A secret that has eaten me alive and kept me away from her all these years when all I have ever wanted was to hold her again. This time though, I won’t let go, and she has another thing coming if she thinks she is getting away from me that easy. As reckless as our love has been, I will never stop fighting for her. After all… her, me – that is all I know that is right in this world.

This is a NEW to me author & books! I was asked by the author to read/review upon which the blurb caught my eyes. Something I would read for sure, so I accepted & here we are!

After a wedding where Rex and Gwen end up at the same airport, one drinks leads to more and next thing you know, Gwen is sneaking out to talk the walk of shame. Why? Well, when you’ve been there done that, got hurt, learned lesson and moved on. Yeah, Gwen kept telling that to herself. Little did she know, that what she wanted to run away from…may show up after-all! But…a wrench is thrown in.

This was such a sweet story of second-chances and LOVE. Love always wins even when things don’t go as planned. The history they have between one another is BEAUTIFUL, SCARY AND REAL! You will not be prepared for this plot…just when you think you have it figured out…you don’t. The secrets and mystery in this…will keep you on the edge. I really, really enjoyed this story.

R E V I E W ➠ Devoted To Love by Shayla Black

2019 ARCs, June 2019 Review, MUST READS!

DEVOTED TO LOVE

He was sent to guard her body… he didn’t expect her to steal his heart.

Her sister’s wedding was hardly the place to find a hook up, but after one look at friend-of-the-groom and special operative Josiah Grant, small-town Texas beauty Magnolia West immediately fell in lust. After a stunningly sensual night together, Maggie is prepared for the two of them to go their separate ways. After all, she’s not a happily-ever-after kind of girl. But Josiahβ€”and dangerβ€”change her plans.
Josiah isn’t looking for love…but Maggie rouses his body and stirs his heart like no other woman. She’s got a rocky romantic past, and a smart man would steer clear. But when the murder quotient in Kendall County rises and all signs point to a mysterious group nearby who have been harassing Maggie’s family, he can’t leave her unprotectedβ€”especially when he realizes he’s fallen hard for her.
As tension mounts and the menace closes in, Josiah will do anything to prove to Maggie that their love is real…but can they stay alive long enough to share it?

If I were the sort of guy eager and capable of hanging on to a woman forever, he’s choose one like Magnolia. She was sweet enough to lure him, yielding enough to submit to him, uninhibited enough to scream for him, and sassy enough to keep him guessing.

This author is one of my very first reads, actually I believe my third author ever. So therefore I have read her books before and am very familiar with the author’s writing style!

If you’ve read and are familiar with Shaylas’ writing style you’ll understand when I say this is such a Shayla Black book! The hero is mega alpha, (bdsm related) Dom, super sexy and brave of course! The heroine is beautiful, smart and strong with a hint of damsel in distress. My favorite kinds! That said, this book was a little of everything, and all i enjoyed!

Maggie meets Josiah at her sisters wedding. He was there to protect and she was there, well because her sister was getting married! They spend a sinful and amazing night together, only to think they will part the next day. Come to find out , they will be spending a lot more time together than anticipated. Josiah is guarding her while guarding his own heart!

Maggie is in a lot more danger than Josiah imagined. When he stays to guard her and find out what is happening in town, when he does find out, it’s a lot more threatening. When the danger gets closer, do does Josiah and Maggie. It’s kind of really beautiful, the way they are with each other. This is BDSM based and I LOVED EVERY PAGE OF IT! Shayla Black really writes that genre amazingly! So believe that the scenes are sizzling!

From The Book:
❝Baby, I took one look at you and was determined to have you whenever and however I could. Come here.❞

The characters are so intertwined, the plot fits well and everything is in order as far as reading goes. I did read this in one sitting because well, I just love her writing style and it captivated me and kept going. There wasn’t even a point where it was slightly slow! I will say that I did not expect the outcome, the ending and all. It has me on the edge reading faster to see what will happen, will it? hehe Like i said a reason why I liked this book so much, it’s got danger, mystery lots of actions and the romance since is swoon + kinky sex…so just saying!!


A MUST READ!
