Review

I received an ARC of this book from TRSOR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I’ve followed this series since Calla and Cain. And now, four books down, I still enjoy reading about each character as if it’s the first time I’m meeting them. One of the things I love about this series is the connection/relationship between the main characters of each book. While each installment can be read as a standalone, there really is a bigger picture in the series. That’s why I strongly suggest that this series be read in order. It’s not as if doing so will be a hardship, anyway.

I’ve been excited for Dilan’s book since this was teased in Aidan’s book. I wanted to know how things were going to be played out for him and Anna, because it was obvious that they were going to get their own book. And now, I can say that it was worth the wait and excitement. I think Roan’s book is still my favorite, but Dilan’s story is a very, very good one too. I guess that’s because I love revenge and redemption stories.

If you’ve followed this series, you will appreciate the fact that all other main characters from the previous three books are still significant in this story. I like that the men in this series are all alpha males who know how to take charge and win their women. I also like the the women/heroines are strong women who perfectly complement the men’s characters. Before this series, I haven’t read anything from Ms. Coopmans. But now, I am definitely a fan who will be watching out for more releases from her.

 

Excerpt

“I know what the fuck is running through your mind, Dilan. Let it fucking go. You can blame yourself all you want, but this is the last time I’ll tell you that no one blames you for this. We’re all a little shocked. Stunned to the very fucking core over this shit. One thing you need to know, to hear from me, is this. I can honestly stand here and tell you that if I were you, I would be doing the same thing. Nothing would have stopped me, and I know with every goddamn bone in my body that you wouldn’t blame me for a damn bit of it. Pull your head out of your ass. Man the fuck up. I want every one of those women back.” I close my eyes and clip the bridge of my nose, exhaling as I do.

“Don’t stand there pitying yourself or any one of us, Dilan. We will get through this.” My uncle stands directly in front of me. His words are mixing with the ones Roan just spoke, stabbing me with a dull knife into my already wounded heart.

“One thing I hate is repeating myself. But it seems with you I have to. You’ve always carried this fucked-up world on your shoulders. Just like your cousin, you’re a fixer. Determined to do shit on your own in order to protect those you love. Well,goddamn it, sometimes in life we need to ask for help. Even though you didn’t, you sure as fuck are getting it. There are things in life that drive us to do things we do not want to do. I know first-hand how these things or people that drive a knife so deep into your gut, twisting the shit out of it until you’re damn near bleed dry, can possess your every thought. It damn near killed me to know Royal had a part in putting you away. Why he turned on all of us is irrelevant. He did. He broke the rules and so did the Carlos family. The situation with Royal has lead up to all of this. My guess is he was jealous of you, like he was of his own brother. He had his filthy hands mingling with Juan’s, to attack me where he knew it would hurt me the most. My family.” He pauses briefly then continues on, his words pulling me from my gloom of guilt.

Title: Predator
Author: Michelle Horst
Genre: Romantic Suspense
 Release Date: April 29, 2016
Blurb
All my life I’ve been hiding, until there is no corner on this god-forsaken earth left for me to hide. I have to pay for the sins of my father. No one with Ellison blood in their veins is allowed to live, and I am the last of my bloodline.I am kept in a container waiting for my death sentence to be carried out, when he comes. He is only known as ‘Predator’. No one knows who he works for, only that he leaves no one alive.

His every breath is filled with the last gasp of his dying prey.

But for some reason he doesn’t kill me.

I don’t know which is worse, the death sentence hanging over my head, or being at his mercy.

Review
I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.

To be honest, I was expecting this book to be darker than it actually is. I mean, the blurb just basically painted so many dark scenarios for me. However, this book was more contemporary than dark. And it wasn’t a bad thing. For what it’s worth, I’ve read my fair share of dark reads, and I appreciate books that tread both contemporary and dark genres.

I haven’t read anything from this author before. And I’m glad that I got to read this book because I really liked it. Her characters were created in a solid, relatable way. Not relatable because the situations were realistic, but their personalities were relatable. I liked the heroine, and I enjoyed witnessing her development. I also liked the drama and emotion that this book had. All in all, I truly enjoyed it, and I’d definitely be checking out other books from Ms. Horst from now on.

“Look at me, Cara,” and he waits until I do, “love is such a flawed thing. You can love someone but still leave them. What I feel for you goes way beyond that one word. I’m addicted to you. I feel protective of you. I breathe for you.” His eyes caress my face and follow the tears into my hair. “Love is really such a flawed word for what I feel. I live for you.”

 

 

Author Bio

Michelle Horst is from a small town in South Africa.

She’s been in love with reading from an early age. She has a passion for books, quotes and animals.

She first tried her hand at writing in early 2009 and as the first words started to form into a book, she knew she was hooked. 

Dreams spilled onto pages, and that was the beginning of a wonderful journey. A journey filled with joy, passion and heart stopping moments. Most of all, it’s filled with such pride and peace as a story comes to life, and characters fill your life, living in the very walls of your mind, living in the minds of your readers.

GRIT Cover

Synopsis: Gabby Morgan isn’t looking for love. Not even a little romance. Following a rocky past that she’d just as soon forget, she’s determined to focus on the future. One that most certainly doesn’t involve the tough-as-nails, short-on-words, hot-as-hell biker…or his kid.

Blake Mahone may not be done with women, but he’s finished with relationships. Then Gabby Morgan enters the picture. She’s flawless, refined, and as his kid’s teacher, way out of his league. She acts like she hates him, but her eyes tell a different story. Before he knows it, Blake finds himself hot for teacher, and he’s more than ready to learn all her secrets. Now all he has to do is convince her to give him a shot…without getting them both killed in the process.

Review

I received an ARC of this book from IndieSage PR in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I lover biker romances. I mean, seriously. Give me a biker romance any day, and I’d gladly devour it. Really devour it. There’s just something about the MC life that appeals to me. It’s funny because I’ve always seen myself as this ice queen, prissy, always looking for comfortable things, and always choosing the easy way. But I love reading about the gritty, hard life within the MC. I love that these characters aren’t the suave billionaires or CEOs. So, here I am again reviewing yet another book, this time, by JC Valentine. And let me tell you, I’ve read enough books from her to know that she really knows how to put a story together.

Now, as if a biker isn’t enough, there’s also a cute little kid to love in this book. Story-wise, I think this book actually has a simple plot. What I really enjoyed reading was the character development of both the hero and the heroine. I like the dash of suspense that was injected to the story. I also like the way that Ms. Valentine created two solid characters with interesting back stories. Most of all, I love the way this books makes a reader hungry for more. I, myself, am looking forward to the next book. Grit is a great way to kick off a series. I can’t wait to read more.

Review
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release day promotions.

I’ve read other books from Clarissa Wild before, but I was really excited for this book because it’s a Beauty and the Beast type of romance, and if you know me, you’d know that it’s my favorite fairy tale and that I love a good Beauty And The Beast book because I always believe there’s just so many things you can take away from the fairy tale and from its retellings.

Viktor is a beast. When I say beast, it means he has physical disfigurements that make him ugly. And there were really heavy reasons for those scars that he has. Lexi, for all her beauty, is a prostitute. This story is a fairy tale, but it’s not. We don’t have a beautiful heroine who’s perfect and flawless. Lexi is flawed, broken, difficult. But it is because of both their imperfections that the story works so well.

I like how Ms. Wild throws in plot twists like there’s no tomorrow. I mean, I already know her techniques by now, but she still never fails to surprise me with those twists she adds into her stories. Viktor has dark elements, but it is all in all a good and solid contemporary romance novel that will give you a few hours of relief from reality, so you can lose yourself in a tale as old as time.

Excerpt

Unedited Excerpt – Subject to change – Copyright 2016 Clarissa Wild 

“Why am I still here?” she whispers as my hand disappears into her panties.

“Because you want me. Because you can’t leave.” I slide my fingers between her slit. Her folds are already wet for me, even before I’ve laid a hand on her. I grin against her skin, finally understanding why I want her so much. She needs it rough … and rough is all I am.

“You used this against me, Lexi …” I whisper in her ear. “Used your pussy as a tool to get information.”

“It wasn’t just that …”

“Show it to me then.”

The nightgown falls down to the floor, exposing her naked body right in front of the open window. But with no one around, neither of us cares. I’m going for the kill.

“Make me believe the lie that’s us,” I say, rubbing her clit.

“It’s not a lie …” she murmurs, her breaths coming out in short gasps.

“You only say that because my hand is around your throat,” I say, dipping my finger into her pussy. She gasps out loud as I go deep and swirl around inside her. “Because I own this pussy.”

“Fuck …” she moans.

I groan and then pull away, releasing her from my grip entirely. A confused Alexis turns around and props herself against the windowsill, her eyes pleading with me as I walk backward. My cock is hard, but my desire to know where we stand is much more urgent. Her legs draw together and she clutches her body as another draft enters through the window, her nipples peaking from the cold.

I can’t help biting my lip as I watch her become befuddled while I sit down on the chair on the opposite end of the room.

“Go on then …” I say, rubbing my bottom lip with my index finger. “Carry on with the little show you had going in my workroom.”

She stares at me for a few seconds before leaning back. Her eyes glance over her shoulder to the opened window. I wonder if she’s thinking what I’m thinking. If she’s hesitating … trying to decide whether to run or stay … if she wants me more than her freedom.

But then her eyes settle on me as I zip down my pants and pull out my cock.There’s a gleam of desire in her eyes … one that makes me grab a hold of the base and say, “You want this? You can have it … after you show me you really want it.”

Once he was broken beyond repair.
Now this MMA contender is fighting to be a better man—for her. RT Book Reviews
proclaims that the O’Brien Family series from award-winning author Cecy Robson
“has the hottest brothers ever!” And in Let Me, it is Finn’s turn to discover
how love can heal the deepest wounds.

A mixed martial arts star on the
rise, Finn O’Brien dismantles his opponents with brutal precision. And yet
beneath his fierce persona, Finn is raw from a trauma he’s buried for years . .
. until the day his deep-rooted rage erupts and lands him in court-mandated
therapy. Finn’s not one to bare his soul, but if talking it out means meeting
beautiful women like Sol Marieles, he’ll give it a shot.
Sol is working toward her master’s
degree in psychology, and already she feels like she’s in over her head. With
an important internship on the line and a scary family situation demanding her
attention, the last thing Sol needs is Finn around to distract her. The man is
ripped and seriously sexy yet it’s his troubled side that warns her to keep her
distance. But their attraction is intense, and he clearly has the heat to see
how far and fast their passion takes them.
Alone, Finn and Sol have been
fighting to find happiness in their lives. Together, there’s no stopping them
as they face their greatest challenges—not in the ring, but in their
hearts. 
Review
I received an ARC of this book from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.

I have loved this family since they were introduced in Ms. Robson’s other series. However, I have to admit that the first book in this series was a little meh for me. I mean, I still enjoyed it, but it wasn’t as gripping as the books in the Shattered Past series, and I was kind of expecting it to. Neverthless, I made the decision to read on because I trust Ms. Robson’s talent and also because, as I’ve mentioned, I loved this family.

As it turns out, this second installment was just what I was looking for. We have Finn who, I’m sure, has been collecting fans since he was introduced. Then, we have Sol, a heroine that wins hearts easily. It goes without saying that I truly enjoyed this book. I’d gladly recommend it to any romance reader. If you’ve followed the Shattered Past series, then you should check out this series as well because this family has characters which you should not miss.
