Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: March 14, 2017 Pages: 206 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Welcome to the motorcycle club world! I loved Joanna Wylde’s Reapers series and genuinely think that her MC series is one of the best. I couldn’t have been happier when I heard that the president of the Reapers MC would have his own book. I had been looking forward to reading his story in general and how he met his old lady. What is the story about? It follows a young woman named Mandy who has had a tough life since she met her ex-husband, which made her end up in jail for three days and having to serve six months unsupervised probation. She gets the approval to relocate to the town her older […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone (part of a series) Published on: November 12, 2015 Pages: 401 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon “Even if we did have to fight to overcome the cruel, we hung on to the beautiful and it was damn worth it.” What a beautiful, unforgettable epic love story. I have never cried this hard since my last ugly-cry book, and I have a feeling that this book will stay in my heart for a very long time. This story had broken my heart to pieces, rebuilt it in the process, and made it complete again. My advice for you are, first, if you haven’t read this book, don’t think that you know where it is going. Second, if you are the type of readers, like me, who like […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: October 22, 2014 Pages: 416 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon The blurb and one of the authors, Skye Warren, were the factors that made me give this book a try. I loved her book “Wanderlust,” so I knew what to expect from her. In addition, the blurb was fantastic. It caught my eye the moment I read it. And since I was in the mood for something edgy, I chose this book. To my surprise, this book was not as dark as I had first expected it to be. What is it about? Abigail Winslow is a college student who has been assigned to teach a writing class for a group of felons at the high-security prison, The Kingman Correctional Facility, as part of her […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: February 15, 2017 Pages: 248 Source: Purchased Rating: 4 STARS Buy on Amazon This is the second book in the Venom series wich picks up where Passion and Venom (book 1) left off. This is not a standalone. You need to read the previous book in order to follow this story. I normally hate cliffhangers, however, for some unknown reasons, I couldn’t help to read this series, even though I had to torture myself in the process. This story is not for everyone. In case you haven’t read my review for Passion and Venom yet, this series contains heavy subjects such as torture, rape, murder, kidnap, and manipulation. If you cannot deal with those subjects, don’t read this series. Stay away from it if you can. I’m a […]

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: September 13, 2016 Pages: 188 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon When the author said “this is not for everyone,” I knew right away that this book was for me. I love books that will push my boundaries, drag me out of my comfort zone, and put me in a new level of intense book love. This book really did it to me. However, since it contains taboo and forbidden topics, it is NOT FOR EVERYONE. If you are sensitive to violence, rape, torture, abuse, blood and murder, please, don’t read this book. However, if you are open to the highly sensitive issues above, you can read the following. This story follows a newly married woman named Gianna Nicotera who has just married the […]
