Review

I received an ARC of this book from Between The Sheets Promotions in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s release promotions.

I’ve always loved Anna Zaire’s dark romance books. I first fell in love with her in her Twist Me trilogy. I think that was the first dark erotica that I really liked, and I looked forward to each installment until I got all three. Now, here we are with the second installment of that trilogy’s spin off. I loved the first installment, Capture Me, because the events coincided perfectly with the evens from the Twist Me trilogy. Also, that book introduced the heroine’s back story.

This book, though, is full on sex on almost every page. I’m not complaining, of course. But in this book, it showed how the relationship between the main characters became deeper mainly because of sex. But that wasn’t all. The hero obviously felt something more for the heroine. The same could be said for Yulia. It’s just sad that they were both fighting against their feelings too hard. It was understandable on Yulia’s part because she had someone important that could be used against her by her employers.

I cannot wait to read what’s next in their story. This spin off is truly riveting. I couldn’t stop reading it. When I got to the end, I was both thrilled and pissed off. Pissed off because now I have to wait to the next book. But I was also beyond thrilled because the story’s excitement just keeps escalating. I really like the way Ms. Zaires keeps her readers on their toes.

She fears him from the first moment she sees him.

Yulia Tzakova is no stranger to dangerous men. She grew up with them. She survived them. But when she meets Lucas Kent, she knows the hard ex-soldier may be the most dangerous of them all.

One night—that’s all it should be. A chance to make up for a failed assignment and get information on Kent’s arms dealer boss. When his plane goes down, it should be the end.

Instead, it’s just the beginning.

He wants her from the first moment he sees her.

Lucas Kent has always liked leggy blondes, and Yulia Tzakova is as beautiful as they come. The Russian interpreter might’ve tried to seduce his boss, but she ends up in Lucas’s bed—and he has every intention of seeing her there again.

Then his plane goes down, and he learns the truth.

She betrayed him.

Now she will pay.

Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Erotic,Adult, Organized Crime

Scarless& Sacred Cover

Buy:Amazon • Amazon PRINTB&NKoboiBooks

Synopsis: Secrets and wars leave the deepest scars.

Evelina Conti has always worn a mask. She is an Outfit principessa, respected and adored. She wasn’t allowed to be anything else. Her father went from a grieving husband to the Outfit boss, and now that Riley heads the family, Eve is more suffocated than ever. No matter how much she hates it, the Conti princess still has a role to play. A little attention from Theo DeLuca seems innocent enough, but nothing is when it comes to him. And certainly not when everyone believes that Theo is out to kill her.

Theo DeLuca has a target on his back. His biggest problem is figuring out who put it there when everyone is aiming at him. He doesn’t need a woman causing him issues, but the Conti princess keeps showing up at the worst times, and he’s the one left saving her. Between the men surrounding him that Theo can’t trust, and the past he can’t outrun, Evelina might be the one thing he doesn’t have to question. But when Riley decides to use Eve as his next move, even Theo might not be able to save her.

The war in Chicago is not even close to being over. This game is deadly. Each hand played cuts another mark into someone else. The Outfit boss is struggling while the men around him are rallying. As the body count continues to rise, the families keep losing.

Sacrifices are a part of war. No one will walk away from this without scars.


PLEASE NOTE:Scarless& Sacred is not intended to be read as a standalone in this series. It is the third book in the series and should be read after the first two books. Trigger Warning: Scarless features graphic violence and scenes of past abuse.

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 have to admit that before deciding to join the blog tour for Scarless And Sacred, I have not read a single book from this series at all. I hear about it a lot, and I’ve always thought that the covers on them were amazing. When I got the chance to sign up for the blog, I immediately joined because the series has intrigued me ever since the first book came out. The Chicago War series is sort of a serial, but each book focuses on a different pair. However, you won’t gett the bigger picture if you don’t read the books in order. That’s why I binge-read all three books as soon as I received my copies.

The first book was pretty explosive and exciting. It introduced me to a world and people that existed in the Chicago outfit. The second book got me deeper into the lives of the four outfit families. This book, the third book, got me invested in the two main characters because I really liked them indiividually. Unfortunately, for people in the outfit, love, romance, gentleness, and purity have no room. No on is safe, No one can be trusted.

Bethany-Kris does a great job of hooking her readers in, giving them a taste of what life is for these characters. Her books sound very authentic, and while there’s still mainly a romantic focal point to everything, there’s still a lot of grit and pain and suffering within the book’s pages. I cannot wait to continue on with the fourth book. I am excited to know what the future looks like for the four families and also to find out who is really starting the war within them.

When it comes to this world, no man can be trusted. Someone is ready to flip the Chicago Outfit on its side all for the promise of something better. But no one runs a clean game and these men play for keeps. When blood begins to paint Chicago red, four families will be divided by loyalty, hatred, and revenge. There is no hiding.

Synopsis: Play dirty. It’s the only way to win in a war.

A certain Conti has always been able to sway her inner rebel and keep her out of trouble, but even Adriano won’t be able to get her out of her brother’s mess. In a war, no woman is safe if her hand in marriage can advance her family in the world of the mafia. But mistakes of the past have a way of slipping into the present and Alessa will soon learn that even the most shameful of secrets can get her everything she wants.

Adriano Conti’s loyalties are torn as he’s forced to stand at his father’s side while Riley uses his wife’s murder as a way to get higher. Blood comes first and then the Outfit. The one thing he doesn’t question in the war between the families is AlessaTrentini and even that doesn’t seem possible when he’s forced to watch Alessa be used as another man’s pawn. Adriano has his own role to play to get what he wants.

The families in the Outfit have never been more divided than they are now. Blood continues to spill as revenge takes center stage and more lives are lost. But every man in the family is fighting for something different and no one’s intentions can be trusted. Playing a dirty game might be the only way to stay alive.

Even if that means ruining it all.

Dirty Ugly Toy
by K Webster
Publication Date: January 18, 2015
Genres: Romance, Contemporary, Dark, Adult

DUTFRONT

Purchase: Amazon | Kobo | iBooks

Her time is over.
Things are looking up.

She’s dirty and ugly.
He’s wicked but handsome.

Six months to toy with her.
Six months of vacation and a ton of money.

I’ll hurt her beyond repair.
I’ve been through much worse.

She’s difficult to control and doesn’t obey.
I’m done submitting to anyone or anything in this life.

I should hate her.
I should hate him.

The game has changed.
I will win.

Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to read and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.

 

 

 

 

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.

This isn’t my first K. Webster book, but this is my first book from her of this genre. I was a little hesitant because I lover her contemporary romances, and I wasn’t sure if I’d like this book as well. However, the blurb was very interesting, and I just couldn’t pass on it. Turns out, I made the right decision. Dirty Ugly Toy is a very good dirty and ugly love story between a toy and a master who both her their own demons.

Sometimes, love is not about finding the person who purges us from our demons. Rather, it is about finding that person whose own demons can live with ours. I’ve said it again and again. The reason why I love dark romances is because I truly believe that love is not only for the clean and the good and the beautiful. Love is also for the monsters, the twisted minds, the bad and the ugly. In this case, both Bunny and Braxton may have the darkest of demons, but that doesn’t mean they don’t get to fall in love anymore.

I like how this book pushed past boundaries of any normal reader. If dark erotica isn’t your usual style, I think you’d best start with this book because it may be dark, but there is a significance to the darkness in the story and the characters. This book shows us the impacts a bad childhood can have on children when they grow up. I loved this book. I’ve loved K. Webster before, but I can say now that I am truly a fan because I now know just how versatile her writing can be.

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.

I think I’ve already said this numerous times that every now and then, I get this craving to read dark romance. And there’s only very few authors who excel in this genre. Clarissa Wild happens to be one of them. I loved Stalker and Twenty-One. I was excited for this book because the blurb was very intriguing. There’s a lot of master/slave romance going on these days that it’s hard to find a story that unique and memorable.

Ultimate Sin is a touching and sad love story deep within a dark romance package. Ava, Marcus and Daniel are all people who find love in the midst of a dark world they lived in. I don’t know how the ending made me feel. And the story had a generally heartbreaking vibe all throughout. I could say it was more sad than dark. The sex scenes were super hot. The menage could carry you away at some point. All in all, this book had the perfect balance of dark, sweet, and hot. I may feel like it had a sad ending, but I think it was just the right way to end the story. If you love dark romance, you should check this out. You won’t be sorry.

Excerpt

I take a fistful of her hair and pull her closer, wanting to lick every inch of her mouth. Her taste is intoxicating and makes me want to do sinful things to her body. My cock is already painfully hard, nudging against my pants, practically begging to be taken out and played with.

I’ve wanted this since I first laid eyes on her. It’s so fucking bad, but I can’t get enough of the way she looks at me with those innocent eyes. She’s a vixen, and she knows it. She spins us all around her little finger, and I love it.

Marcus stands behind her, grabbing her waist, only to push her closer to me. He kisses her shoulder, neck, and back as I kiss her. Between us, she smolders with heat and desire that’s impossible to ignore.

I let my hands roam freely over her body, squeezing her tits and tugging her nipples until she squirms and moans into my mouth. I smile against her lips and continue to kiss her, knowing that my touch drives her crazy. I know how to please a woman. I’ve been taught for so long, I could never forget.

But fuck me, is this something else.

We’re kissing her both, sandwiching her between us like some sex-crazed cavemen.

“Show her how much you want her,” Marcus growls, setting his teeth into her skin.

She gasps as he leaves a gentle bite mark, and I take her nipple into my mouth and suck hard, then nibble a little, setting her skin on fire.

She moans out loud, and I return to her face to capture the sound.

“Yes, make those sounds, Ava. Show us how much you want us too,” Marcus growls.

He slides his hand between her legs as I kiss her, and I can tell from the way she’s panting into my mouth that he’s flicking her clit so hard she could come right there and then. God, I’d do it just for that look of pure pleasure on her face. It’s magnificent. Something to behold. Something special I can’t place, but I feel it deep down in my heart. I need this woman. Right now.

However, I don’t get the chance to make a move because Marcus just grabbed a bottle of lube and positioned himself behind her, squirting it all over her and himself. He parts her legs, grabbed his cock, and shoved it up her ass.

She mewls out loud, her head tipping back as he grips her hair. I do the only thing I can think of. I kiss her neck, toying with her nipples as he pounds her ass again and again. Her eyes connect with mine, desperation and need seeping through until I feel nothing but the desire to satisfy her every craving. So I keep kissing her over and over until she can barely breathe.

I watch him bring his fingers back to her pussy, flicking her clit as he fucks her in the ass.

“You’re so wet, Ava. Is it because you’re kissing him?” he whispers. “Or is it because I’m fucking your tight ass?”

“Yes,” she moans, and her admission only makes me harder. “Both.”

“I bet you’d like to come all over my hand, don’t you?”

His dirty talking even has me shivering as I kiss her lips.

“Oh, God, yes,” she says, shuddering.

“Daniel wants you too, Ava … He wants to fuck your pretty little mouth while I claim your ass …”

“Yes … both of you.”

“Both of us at the same time, fucking your holes until you can no longer stand,” he groans.

She gasps. “Yes.”

Fuck me.

I thought my cock couldn’t get any harder, but apparently, it could.

It’s about to burst out of my pants, so I throw all my restraint out the window and tear down my pants, allowing my cock to spring free from its constraints.

And good God … the way she looks down at it, blinking rapidly, licking the top of her lips … it makes me want to bend her over and fuck her next.

“See how hard he is for you? It’s all for you, Ava.”

“But Master …” She swallows, gazing at my length and then back up at my eyes. “Are you sure this is okay?”

“Ava … you both belong to me.” His eyes glint with thirst as he licks her skin like an animal. “Now … Bend over.”

Synopsis Logo

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be held hostage by an Italian stallion?

My name is Clara, and I am part-owner of a brothel called “The Castle.” My empire is my home which I’ve worked hard to build a life from. A future. But one day, the infamous Luca Belatoni stepped into my office and demanded that I pay him protection money.

Of course, I refused.
Of course, he wouldn’t take no for an answer.

Now he is in my castle—holding me hostage. Trying to control my mind in business and my body in bed. Neither of which I will allow. No matter how much his caramel eyes and Italian words of love puncture my hardened heart.

So, being the hostage of an Italian stallion pretty much sucks.
Because this man is a force to be reckoned with.
And while I am not frightened for my life,
I am definitely frightened for my heart.

Review

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

I always enjoy Jaimie Roberts’ books. There’s a certain darkness to them that I love. I think my first book of her was Deviant, and I loved that book. I’ve read other stalker romance books after Deviant, but none of them could even come close to the thrill and dangerously delicious vibe that Ms. Roberts had with her book. I admit that I haven’t quite read the last couple of releases she had. However, when I saw that she was about to release this book, I immediately jumped on the chance to read and review it.

Luca is a book that centers on the romance between Clara and Luca. Mind you, neither one of them are upstanding citizens of society. However, nobody ever said love was only for the clean ones. I like that both main characters were far from perfect. Luca was your typical alpha male, but he had his hands full with Clara because she wasn’t a weak woman. The chemistry between the main characters was great to read. This book ends in a cliffhanger, so if that’s not your thing, I suggest you wait until the serial is complete. However, I would like to point out that this is a great sizzling romance that any reader will enjoy.
