The last place Christopher Jacobs, aka X, thought he’d find himself was behind bars. Ten years later, the boy he used to be is gone. In his place is the shell of a man with murder under his belt. Any emotion he once had was left under the gavel when he was given life in prison. That is until the new nurse in the infirmary joins the block.
Putting your hands on a prison employee will get you the hole, but some things are worth their punishment, and something tells him Lyla will be worth more than he bargained for.
Lyla Evans isn’t sure about her new job at a maximum security prison, but showing uncertainty and weakness isn’t an option. Taking care of murderers and rapists isn’t ideal, but survival is key. She’s warned ahead of time about a prisoner named X, but when she’s attacked, it’s the dangerous X that saves her. Fraternizing with the prisoners is forbidden, but sometimes the most forbidden things are the sweetest.

I did not expect this book to leave me with a sob fest.
I can normally sniff out a tear-Jerker, I avoid them until I need one, Just goes to show they are not always evident from a pretty blurb or behind and pretty cover.
I thought the story of Christopher Jacobs, aka X and Lyla Evans was going to be bitter-sweet and I couldn't have been more wrong.
This story is gritty right from the very beginning when a young Christoper Jacobs finds himself in a room with his girlfriend and his friend covered in blood, dismembered bodies and a blood fest and he has no recollection of how they were murdered or why he was still alive. Christopher Jacobs is arrested and sent to prison for murder, caught at the scene, covered in blood with all evidence pointing in his direction.
The story picks up 10 years later when Lyla begins her job at the prison, straight out of medical school and in need of money she had no choice but to accept the position as a nurse even if it would be the last place her deceased father who was a police officer would want her to be.
X has a reputation for getting into trouble, his size, his lack of communication and participation with the other inmates make him a target and they all want to be on top.
X is a mountain of a man compared to the gangly teen who first went into prison.
Lyla see's X regular, he's a frequent visitor to the medical room and even though Lyla should be afraid of X she see's something more. A relationship develops between the two secretly and then Layla becomes endangered when she starts poking around in X's case. The prison is corrupt, the governor is corrupt and there's and whole lot of angst.
"I was a murderer, at least allegedly. A filthy criminal who had no right to touch her sweetness or taste her thick desire, but fuck it. People took things they didn’t deserve all the time. Why should I deny myself when no one else ever did"?
I was intrigued, I was captivated with the plot and the characters, Slammer had it's hot moment's too and I could not put this book down. It was completely unpredictable, the twists I never saw coming and I completely applaud the author for going along with the characters lead although it broke my heart.
An unforgettable dark and gritty story that I enjoyed. *Contains scenes of rape and bloodshed. AVAILABLE IN KU
When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.
Bianca is accustomed to dealing with supermodels and movie stars in her job as a first class flight attendant, but James Cavendish puts them all to shame in the looks department. If only it were just his looks that she found so irresistible about the intimidating man,
Bianca could have ignored his attentions. But what tempts her like never before is the dominant pull he seems to have over her from the moment they meet, and the promise of pleasure, and pain, that she reads in his eyes.
An alpha dominant billionaire and a flight attendant.
Instant attraction, obsession, possession, there were so many similarities to our beloved Christian Grey in James Cavendish.
The characters are different, the plot is different but Mr Cavendish or James has a room on the 4th floor in his apartment and the similarities with FSOG are comparable with a lot of things. I realise this book was published in 2012 ironically the same year as FSOG so this was the in thing for that time, its what readers wanted, they wanted more Christian Grey's, so with that in mind R.K. Lilly definitely delivered.
I enjoyed In Flight, its one of those books that have been sitting on my kindle a while, it was hot, I was intrigued the more the story progressed, it wasn't all sex Bianca does have a past as does James and I liked the characters.
Sadly this is not a standalone and you are left with a cliffhanger. Please note that this is a trilogy and if you read a lot of books like me, have a budget for your reading this works out at $16.43 OR £12.35 for all three books. So I enjoyed this book but won't be following the trilogy when I have so many other books on my kindle and use KU and audible But never say never, if I saw this on sale I would grab at it to see how James and Bianca's relationship progressed.
It’s what I’m known around town for.
A rock-hard body, covered in tattoos with a sizeable bulge that women spend their nights fantasizing about.
Women track me down, needing someone that will fuck them rough without holding back.
They find me because they need a distraction from reality. They need something to get their mind off of the boyfriend who screwed them over or the job promotion they got passed over on at work.
Sometimes it’s just because they need someone reckless in the bedroom before settling down with the right one.
‘Cause I’m sure as hell not that guy.
I’m not the suit wearing, flower-buying guy you take home to meet the parents. I’m not the guy who will make you feel all warm and fucking fuzzy inside.
I was boyfriend material once. Would’ve even made a good husband. That was before everything good in my world got ripped away, leaving me broken beyond repair.
These women come to me because they need an escape to cope with the real world, but none of them know I need it more than them. I need something to make me feel alive. Something to get my heart beating again.
Then Cami shows up in my hometown, broken-hearted and pissed off at the world, needing an escape from her cheating ex.
She’s the only one that doesn’t want to use my body. In fact, she wants nothing to do with it and has no problems telling me so.
She’s interested in one thing only from me—to move into my rental property. But the problem with that is the more we fight, the deeper she buries herself in my soul.
Sex material is what I’m good at, but for the first time, it may not be enough.

Well thankfully after a very loooong Blurb, the book didn't drag on too much and was to the point, with no dips in the plot. i.e moments were I began to lose interest. The blurb gives away to much, reading it back now there isn't much left to tell,
The blurb itself has major spoilers. I believe a blurb should have a little insight and almost like a teaser, tempting you to read it, not tell you what its all about.
About the book;
Enemies to lovers, lots of sexual tension, Sex material is in fact an enjoyable read.
Jensen is an Ass-hole, there's no other way to describe him, he's rude, cocky and bossy. He's the owner of a construction and home rental company and he treats everyone the same, his employees, his tenants, he's a workaholic who doesn't mess with words and he takes pride in his businesses but there's so much more to this broody man and it takes a stubborn schoolteacher looking for a place to rent from him to finally show his true colours and the man behind the pain.
Cami has just discovered her boyfriend of five years has been cheating on her, so while temporarily living with her best friend she discovers the house to next door being fixed up by Jensen and will be available for rent and she heads right over hoping to apply for the rental.
Jensen hates disruption while working, he works hard and crashes hard when he's finished at home.
Jensen and Cami meet for the first time and Jensen's rudeness doesn't go down well with Cami and he gets a piece of her mind of how much of an ass-hole she thinks he is.
I guess Jensen isn't used to being told by a women he's an ass, they normally come on to him for his body, use him for sex, so Cami is refreshing to him, it turns him on and he begins his quest in making her angry whenever he can while he's working next door.
Jensen is a hot, bossy, a dirty mouthed talker and as the story progresses you can't help but love all the sides to him especially the Jensen who begins to lose his barriers and that Jensen is absolutely swoon-worthy.
Jensen goes from sex material to boyfriend material and more, it was a fun journey.
Great characters, fun read with no heavy drama or angst.

I’m a motherless son to a father who hates me. Fury has lived and breathed in my black heart for so long, it’s a part of my soul now. The only thing that’s ever mattered to me is protecting my twin sister, Sabella, from my father’s temper.
So when the chance to join a secret society presents itself, there’s no question I’ll do whatever it takes to become a member and earn my place in the ranks of only the most Elite.
With a taste for the deviant, I’m drawn to the darkest of desires, and no one ever leaves my bed unscathed.
My task: seduce Patience Noelle, St. Augustine’s sweetheart and the mayor’s beloved daughter—then break her heart.
Sinning is what I live for, and deviance is my passion. Failing has never been an option.
But what happens when my sin becomes my curse—when destroying the only woman I’ve ever wanted is my key to protecting my sister?
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.
This isn’t just my chance, it’s my legacy and reckoning.
I am Samuel Gunner.
I am WRATH
Are you Elite?
Lust - Ker Dukey - February 11th
Pride - J.D.Hollyfield - February 25th
Wrath - Claire C. Riley - March 11th
Envy - M.N. Fogy - March 25th
Greed - Amo Jones - April 8th
Gluttony - K. Webster - April 22nd
Sloth - GIana Darling - May 13th
Are you a sinner?
Wow, that was intense!
Immediately you are thrust into Samuel's young life. The life of a young boy without love, a young boy who grows to hate and has a whole lot of bitterness and anger towards his father. Samuel's only calm is his twin sister and his friend Patience, the mayor's daughter who visits when her mother is visiting his father.
Samuel witnesses things no young boy should see, hear's things no young ears should hear and those things mold him into a mountain of anger and hate and the need to be part of the Elite.
The frightened boy. The boy who just wants love. The boy with no mother. The murderer
Samuel's story begins as sympathetic for a young boy and sad, it claims you, and then you are taken to his older years, the young man who needs to dominate In the bedroom, the need to fight and his determination to get into the Elite, to destroy his father, the same man who he feels destroyed him as a boy.
The plot is gripping and as with the previous stories Samuel who is now Wrath is given a task to gain entry into the Elite, a task you begin to question if he will complete it or not, could he be that cruel, is revenge that important?
She's a target, a task, a mountain I'm going to have great satisfaction in conquering. Repeatedly. Until I'm done with her.
I'm not sure if this story runs parallel with the other books or all the events are in order, there was no mention of the girls from the previous books, Lillian though, the so-called school counselor was definitely up to her usual tricks and it felt like it's all happening at the same time. A little confusing but I'm sure it will all unfold and damn, there's four books to go.
This book is not for the faint-hearted, there are BDSM scenes, violence and rape content, it's definitely darker, I feel like I'm jumping down the rabbit hole at this point shouting yippee, like a kid on a slide.
I wish the characters were older, I've said this from the beginning, I struggle with actions of men when in reality they are high school boys and I actually forget at times until class or lessons are mentioned.
We're a brotherhood, and we've bonded. We're In this... whatever the fuck this is... together.
That sentence, I didn't feel this in this book like the others, Samuel faced most of the battles on his own and didn't lean on his new so-called brothers like previous characters.
Each book has been different because each book is by a different author but with the same plot weaving through it and I am looking forward to what ENVY brings next.
I have high hopes for these boys to strengthen their bond and take down the higher Elite, there were no signs of this yet but that alone has me chomping at the bit for more.
This book cannot be read as a standalone, it does finish with a cliffy, the series needs to be read in order. Told in first person dual pov.

Logan Trahan is one of the French Quarter’s hottest bartenders. A single, charming, sexy southern boy who’s proud to pour the best Pimm’s Cup in town. Yes, that’s his biggest accomplishment. So what?
Dana Doucet is a widowed mom of two who’s doing it all. And doing it well, thank you very much. But she had a moment — okay, an entire night — of weakness and gave in after, ironically, nine months of Logan’s naughty flirtations. And a couple of those Pimm’s Cups.
It was just one night, but now they’re stuck with each other forever. Or at least for the next eighteen years, eight months, and one week. Not that she’s counting.
Well, this is definitely big. But there’s no way it’s going to be easy.
Grab it NOW!
Available in paperback from Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon!
“You had one job.” Her cheeks were pink and her green eyes were flashing.
And Logan realized she really was pissed. And that if he kissed her right now, it wouldn’t help.
But he still wanted to.
“What did I do?”
“You got me pregnant.”
Okay, those were absolutely not the words that Logan had been expecting to hear from Dana Doucet. Ever.
Dana let out a long breath and paced to the other side of the office. “I’m pregnant.”
She spun back to face him. “I can’t believe you tried to get me to go out with you for nine months, and I finally give in—once—and now I’ve got another nine months of not being able to avoid you.”
That was not funny. But Logan felt his mouth curl anyway. “I do make an impression.”
A sweet romance, no angst or dramas and part of a series.
The second book in the series, I would say it can be read as a standalone but I felt left out a little bit, there is definitely a progression in the series. I felt I missed out on how all the characters got to know each other, how Logan and Dana first met but that's all, other than that it pretty much begins with the after events of Logan and Dana's one night stand.
Dana discovers she's pregnant, she's a single mum of two girls who lost her husband years before while serving his country.
Logan is the hot bar owner who has had the hots for Dana a while, I missed the flirting and the turn downs from Dana this was obviously in the previous book?
Discovering she's pregnant, Dana tells Logan, he is over the moon , ready to settle down and even instantly wants to get married.
Logan is a fun guy, adorable with the girls and even ends up being kick-ass at girls hair, taking them to dance etc he becomes one of the dance mum's.
Dana let's him be a part of all their lives but honestly sometimes she made it sound like she was doing him a favour and Logan tried his best, he wanted to be a dad, a husband, Dana just took her time letting it all sink in I think.
Dana will at times frustrate you but overall they are great likeable characters.
Basically the whole book is Logan's progression from chatty, fun-loving, smooth talking flirty bartender (something that must have also been in the previous book) to discovering he's having a baby, finding his way in a serious relationship and being a dad, which he rocked.
Taking it easy is a nice steady paced read with hot moments.
No angst or drama's, which personally I would have liked really, drama keeps me intrigued and I found myself drifting off a few times but in summary an enjoyable read with a swoon-worthy guy.

Finally, Wyatt's story. I am loving this series and couldn't wait for Wyatt.
He's the Joker, the lovable guy, he's made me laugh in the previous book but in All the wasted time you see the sadness and turmoil behind the joker mask of Wyatt.
Wyatt's story begins when he witnesses an accident, the car explodes and he fails to save someone, Wyatt blames himself for not being able to save her.
Wyatt and Scarlett meet at a beach side home when he takes himself away for a few days before going back to work as a police officer.
Scarlett is also on a break before she starts her new job.
What was supposed to be a one night stand turns into more when fate steps in they reunite. Scarlett starts her new job as a Psychiatrist at Wyatt's precinct.
A heartwarming story that also touches on the subject of mental health , family love and support.
An enjoyable read but I would have liked more chemistry between Wyatt and Scarlett, I thought the getting to know you phase, the flirting and the foreplay normally in a new relationship was amiss and it jumped into serious to quickly.
A recommended series that I am thoroughly enjoying from Michelle Heard. I love the brotherly love between the guys and the family feel the characters bring with their support for each other.
Looking forward to the next book in the series. Each book can be read as a standalone. Told in first person dual pov. Leads to hea.

The First Full Length Novel in the Bestselling Montgomery Ink Series.
On the wrong side of thirty, Austin Montgomery is ready to settle down. Unfortunately, his inked sleeves and scruffy beard isn’t the suave business appearance some women crave. Only finding a woman who can deal with his job, as a tattoo artist and owner of Montgomery Ink, his seven meddling siblings, and his own gruff attitude won’t be easy.
Finding a man is the last thing on Sierra Elder’s mind. A recent transplant to Denver, her focus is on opening her own boutique. Wanting to cover up scars that run deeper than her flesh, she finds in Austin a man that truly gets to her — in more ways than one.
Although wary, they embark on a slow, tempestuous burn of a relationship. When blasts from both their pasts intrude on their present,
however, it will take more than a promise of what could be to keep them together.
★Book 1: Delicate Ink [FREE!]
Google Play http://bit.ly/1xmD3JO
This wasn't too bad for a freebie. I grabbed it in the hope that this would also be a good series to get stuck into.
Delicate Ink was released in 2015 so when I got to parts where BDSM was imparted into the plot, I realised that this was probably because of the 50 shades influence because it just didn't fit. This story is told in third person and multiple pov's another thing I couldn't get my head around with such a long series, surely these additional characters get their own book at some point? It just got confusing and I am used to reading first person now, so to be honest I wrestled with this too much but was determined to finish.
This book had such potential but I am aware this is early work from Carrie Ann Ryan and I will have to read something current before deciding if I like this authors style, I need to know if she now writes first person?.
The plot, well, it was ok, Austin is a swoon worthy tattoo artist and Sienna has just set up her own business across the street selling clothing, a boutique.
Austin and Sienna have a frosty start when Sienna discovers Austins moody ways but they soon become friends then eventually more.
Sienna has no family and Austin has it in magnitudes with brothers, sisters, cousins, there's a whole big bunch of Montgomery's so it was heartwarming to see Sienna who had been through tough times and loss finally get a happy ending and finding love.
In summary' a nice heartwarming story with hot scenes.
AN OUTLAW'S OBSESSION RUNS FURIOUS, DEEP, AND FOREVER...
Hell always screams into my life on two wheels – so why the hell does he look like heaven? Rabid's nothing like the other vicious thugs in the Grizzlies Motorcycle Club. When I see the dark ink dancing on his stunning body, I almost believe he's here to save me, instead of just seduce me.
But I won't be fooled again. All the club brings is ruin, and they're back to give me more.
Sure, Rabid saved me once. Doesn't mean I'll get closer and dig my grave deeper, no matter how nice his rough hands would feel locked around my waist. Angels never kiss like devils, right?
I can't get her outta my skull. My brothers say she's like broken glass, but they don't know she's already lodged in my heart.
She's tense, suspicious, and totally scared. I'm gonna find out why. Secrets don't mean a damned thing if she's in danger.
Christa's mine. I don't care if my patch makes her flip, or even if she keeps breathing fire my way every second we're together. I'm the best thing that ever walked into her life, and I'm not walking out.
I'll bleed rivers to get my brand on this woman. She's gonna wear it and get used to calling me her old man. I'll have my lips all over this redhead knockout if it's the last thing I do.

A hot MC romance.
I love MC for the angst, the drama, for the bit of rough. Outlaws Obsession had all that but I wanted more.
I was a little lost at first, Rabid previously met Christa in the previous book when she was rescued by the MC from one of their enemies. I have read the previous book but had to think back a bit as my focus was probably more on Missy and Brass from Outlaws Kiss at the time. I prefer not starting a new couples book were it picks up from the previous book, especially if you haven't read it.
Basically, since the incident where Rabid rescues Christa he can't get the redheaded Christa and her battered and scarred body out of his head and becomes obsessed to a point where he even uses one of the club whores who has the same red hair to find his release with.
There is a lot of sex before and after Rabid gets with Christa, it's hot but I found the words such as I spilled my seed in her and those kinds of words a little eye rolling. Apart from the MC club settling scores with enemies, there isn't much in the plot other than sex.
If you like your MC reads with a lot of sex this may be for you but I like more substance and it wasn't as enjoyable for me compared to other MC reads or the previous book.

Second chance romance, Hot tattoo artist, A Great plot with twists and turns, an unpredictable plot, it ticks all my box's and I it!!
Such a breath of fresh air and a unique story-line.
I have read books where the character suffers from amnesia, that isn't new or unique in that way but there was just something that had me longing to see how this all played out, it wasn't just a case of someone trying to regain their memories.
Kylie Scott leaves no room for boredom, the plot is spaced out brilliantly with angst, drama, hotness and I was captivated with the story from the very the moment Clem who is still recovering from her attack which left her with no memories, walks into the tattoo parlor asking Ed if he was the one who gave her a tattoo and she was asked to leave in anger and couldn't understand why.
You are taken on Clem's journey of trying to piece back together her life and trying to figure out who she was before the accident and she discovers along the way that she likes creating a new Clementine. Her first kiss, first sexual experience, Clem's story is Bittersweet.
A beautiful story of second chances with twists and turns woven into the plot. I loved it and was sad when I reached the hea.
Narrated brilliantly, I felt like I was there with the characters and although the narrator is female she didn't half make Ed come across as one swoon-worthy and sexy alpha who made me drool.
I want more like this, I loved it and would recommend it.

Fate made us brothers, loyalty made us family.
A bond that runs deeper than the Mississippi, my brothers and I might not have the same DNA but what we share is far more powerful. Our loyalty to one another and the man who made us a family is stronger than those bound by blood.
The most sought out sharp shooters in the country, our paths were certain, before one woman changed my life and altered the relationship I have with my brothers.
Ryanne Lockwood disappeared without a trace but her memory never faded, torturing me on the darkest nights. Until a twist of fate leads me back to her, sending our worlds to collide once more, and this time, there will be no escaping me.
Justice Creed’s bad boy appeal caught my attention from the moment he rolled into town. For years I watched from afar, swallowing up the rumors that surrounded him.
Until we shared a night of forbidden passion. One that destroyed my heart and reshaped my soul, and it sent me fleeing from the only town I’ve ever known.
Now, years later, he's barged back into my life, uncovering a secret I've worked so hard to keep and it's one that will change our lives forever.
Oh wow! this book ticked all my box's
That cover alone had me one clicking JUSTICE, but the story, I cannot tell you how engrossed I was with Justice and Ryanne's story.
Bossy Alpha, second chance romance, secret baby, hot brothers with a promise of more from the Creed brothers, K.C Lynn has me giddy just thinking about this series now that I have read JUSTICE.
Justice has a sad backstory, he's a young boy in foster care along with two of his two other friends, they look out for each other, protect each other, these friends later make an oath and became brothers when they finally flee the abuse of the Foster parents and the system and begin living on the streets until they are taken in by a guy who then becomes their father.
They all share one common denominator: pain.
The Creed brothers were something to behold in the school halls they were they type of guys every girl wanted to be with. The Creed brothers have a strong family bond and no-one stands in the name of their family.
"he flashes me a cocky smirk that does all sorts of things to my insides and walks away, leaving me standing alone like a lovesick fool. The man is beautifully infuriating".
Ryanne has a completely different upbringing to Justice, she is from a wealthy home with powerful connections within her town but she's also a product of wealth cannot buy you love scenario. Ryanne is also abused by her mother and there's more to that story the further along the plot goes. When Ryanne discovers she is pregnant she flees town afraid that her parents would make her abort the baby, she also flees not telling the father because of his play boy reputation.
"I grew up my whole life without anyone ever loving me and I’ll be damned if I marry a man who doesn’t either."
Ryanne and Justice's story picks up 6 years later when they are reunited.
"I always need him, his touch, his commanding ability to evoke things in me I’ve never felt, to deliver a mind-numbing pleasure only he can".
I loved it, I was captivated with it all, Justice is one bossy protective and swoon-worthy Alpha and I cannot wait for more in this series.

FAn emotional story of love, loss, regrets and forgiveness.
You are immediately thrust into the sadness and loss within this story, Tilly losing not only her brother but her best childhood best friend and neighbor when there is a fatal accident involving her brother, her friend Lincoln and his brother who was drunk while driving the car.
Lincoln and his brother survived but Tilly's brother didn't. Lincoln's brother along with his family is shunned by the community and they all have to move away.
It's a sad beginning to the story, and as the story progressed Tilly and her family are still very much living in the past with their hurt and loss.
The story picks up again after the introduction to 4 years later when Linc returns to do renovations on the old house ready for his parents to sell. Tilly tries to avoid Linc and he also out of respect tries to stay away from Tilly and her parents but the pull between them becomes too much, they also share the same friends.
After the end is also a slow burn friends to lovers story, there are a lot of issues the characters have to work through before anything at all can happen between Linc and Tilly and although I like my romance with a faster pace I found it really slow with nothing holding my interest such as angst and drama BUT although it was slow going, it also fit with the circumstances and that wasn't something to be rushed.
A heartfelt story that would be appreciated on a lazy day were you can soak up and absorb the emotions and the journey.
Confessions of a Klutz:
Confession One: I was a klutz.
I thought I’d grow out of it, but evidently I didn’t.
It’s not fun to look like a fumbling toddler when you’re twenty-six.
Confession Two: I had a standing appointment at the local ER.
It wasn’t by choice that I knew all the doctors names—it was necessity.
But that was about to change.
Confession Three: I hated the sun yet I lived in LA where it always shone.
I supposed that was one plus to being sent to New York for the next eight weeks.
That was until I got there.
Arm veins, dimples, and THE sexiest voice known to man were my weakness,
and he had every single one of them.

This book was like putting on fluffy socks after being in heels all day.
So refreshing and funny, Vi will have you in stitches with her witty words, her no filter mouth, awkwardness, and clumsiness.
“I can always head downstairs and grab Lucas.” “Lucas?” His brows furrowed, a warning shining in the depths of his eyes. “Yep,” I answered, popping the P. “My vibrator. I named him after Lucas from One Tree Hill.”
Confessions of a Klutz is a light-hearted Rom-com, a hot for the boss kind of read that is sizzling in all the right places.
I loved it, I adored Vi and Axel's story, I really didn't want it to end and actually sulked when it ended too quickly making me wish it was longer with the whole shebang hea.
A great pick me up romance, definitely recommended.
Available in KU, told in first person dual and the first in a series.
Part two in the Gods and Monsters Series.
In the land of gods and monsters, she was set free.
Left, lost, forgotten.
Cast out of the only world she remembers, Pet now answers to a new name—victim.
Ares walked away without a backward glance and left her desperate for safety, desire, and the freedom she found in his cruel touch.
But in the end, Pet discovers nothing is ever free.
* In the Land of Gods and Monsters, Part Two, may contain triggers for some readers.
I'm a bit lost for words.
Firstly this book cannot be read as a standalone and book one must be read first.
I don't even know where to start with my review, normally the thoughts flow. I enjoy reading books that are dark, I love angst, darkness, and danger in my romance reads but this was, I don't really know.
I felt like I was watching a car crash, so many times, I squirmed at the scenes, the actions of Camille aka Pet once she was free, feeling lost without her master and craving sex, going to a sex club, yearning for her master and what she had been trained to crave since she was kidnapped, sex, pain, torture.
Just like the first book It's intense, dark, contains disturbing scenes but for some reason, I can't help wanting to know what happens next.
This book has me craving a fluffy romance and ice cream to bring me back to normality and I don't even read fluffy romances or like ice cream.
If you enjoy dark, gritty and intense with disturbing scenes then book one is waiting.

From Samantha Towle, New York Times bestselling author of Breaking Hollywood and Ruin, comes a new powerful, passionate and dramatic contemporary romance.
“With the first pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, the New York Giants select…”
It’s been three years since quarterback Ares Kincaid’s NFL dream came true, and he’s living the high life. The days of cleaning up after his drunk of a father are long gone, and he has no intention of going back.
A car crash and DUI charge meant a lengthy stint in rehab for Arianna Petrelli, and her dream of being a professional artist slips further away when she’s sacked from her position at a gallery. Her need for a job stronger even than her dislike of football, Ari goes to work for her father, the head coach of the New York Giants.
Ares hates alcoholics, which is fine with Ari because she thinks he’s a brainless jock. Yet when Ares rescues Ari from a situation with her ex-boyfriend, an unlikely friendship begins – one that quickly becomes more.
But messing around with the coach’s daughter can only lead to one thing…trouble.
'A moving and fan-yourself-worthy love story' USA Today's Happy Ever After on Ruin
🏈🏈 RUSH out now!🏈🏈
The perfect quarterback. The screwed up coach's daughter. Put the two together, and it can lead to only one thing...trouble.
Get Rush here: http://samanthatowle.co.uk/books/stand-alone-novels/rush
A story of second chances and trust.
Ares Kincaid, star quarterback, he's one of the good guys and not the typical man-whore kind of star player, he loves his family and sisters then there's Arianna Petrelli recovering alcoholic and the coaches daughter.
Ares and Arianna first meet when Arianna who has walked to work in the rain on her first day there goes to the changing room to rid herself of her wet clothes and she is walked in on by Ares.
Ares is instantly attracted by Arianna until he discovers who she is and is nothing but judgemental of her past, her present and is basically repulsed by the sight of her.
Arianna has made mistakes, she is an alcoholic who is trying to change, she knows she cannot erase her past but with the help of her dad giving her a job at the club is taking one step at a time.
Ares is frosty towards her, he has his own judgements and feelings towards alcoholics due to his father and keeps his distance from Arianna.
This is kind of an enemies to friends romance that eventually becomes more and the more is hot!!
I listened to this in audio and I could't help but swoon each time Ares spoke, he had that laid back type of vibe with the sexy smirk that went along with him.
I loved it, I always love Samantha Towle's books and even though this is based on a sports star you don't have to be a fan of sports to read it, the author has you focusing on the characters, their words and actions rather than the setting.
I can't wait to jump into one of Samantha Towles other books she really is becoming my go to author when I want a good book that I will know for sure will hit all the desired spots in a romance read.
RUSH has steam, angst and drama. Told in first person dual pov and leads to hea.

Isla Eriksen was the girl next door, my best friend’s little sister, the girl he warned me never to touch. Sometimes rules are hard to stick to. Over the years I tried to stay away, but when she needed me the most I was there for her and all the rules I stuck by went out the window. Now I have a secret life she doesn’t know about and if I tell her I know I will lose her forever.
He was everything she couldn’t have.
Finn Connolly, the golden haired boy I lost my virginity to, the world famous rock star, a well-known man whore and my brother’s best friend. I told him to pursue his dreams when we were younger. I was right beside him as he and the boys from my childhood became super stars. I fought the chemistry between us for years, I tried to move on.
I tried to love another but he broke my heart. Now I’m back at square one and we can’t seem to keep our hands off each other. Unfortunately, first love and raw chemistry isn’t enough for him to choose me over loyalty to my brother.
One little taste can't hurt; can it
A frustrating story.
The idea of this story got me a little giddy, teen sweethearts, best friends, neighbors, two people who grew up together who would then fall in love, with their love tested when Finn hits it big as a rockstar with his band and then you would expect the story to then go onto the hea but no, it did not go how I expected at all and sometimes predictable is better. It was more complex than that and the characters and their actions become frustrating.
Suddenly trouble begins when Finn and Ilsa are young and this whole journey is through the years to the present day.
When Isla and Finn become more than just friends they keep their relationship to themselves and away from Isla's overprotective brother who is also Finn's best friend, then the band they have formed begins to get noticed and they are asked to go on a tour.
Isla being younger stays behind at school and she tells Finn to experience being a rockstar, all of it, the whole experience and if he's tempted to be with a groupie that's all part of it, he doesn't have to be in a relationship any more, they should just be friends and in the future see where they are because they would be a part a lot and she didn't want to hold him back.
I understood Isla saying this, their relationship was secret anyway, she was young and he would be tempted while on the road and she didn't want him to feel trapped or put in a position were he would have to make excuses to her brother who is also a band member that would give them away but TWO WEEKS? Two weeks before he was pictured with girls and that was just the start of it.
Finn was not only a huge man-whore with crap excuses but I'm convinced a sex addict too, the group went to sex clubs and orgies with each other. When Isla was older she still had feelings for him and joined to be part of the band's team and witnessed all of the sex going on with the band members, the parties and the guys openly having sex, Finn with numerous girls etc.
That girl, I don't know how she stuck around, Finn would sleep with her when he was tempted and they fell into old ways of sneaking around and Isla because she loved him took what he gave then he would be with groupies or at the sex club later in the plot.
Isla didn't have enough backbone for me, both these characters deserved each other in the end, I can't say I liked either of them or their actions in most scenes and I still wasn't convinced at the end they had a forever kind of love.
I love a roller-coaster journey but this was beyond comprehension at times.
I haven't read the previous books, this book can be read as a standalone.
My first by J.A Low, It wasn't an enjoyable read for me and I will definitely have to read a different book by this author to appreciate her writing because it was the characters and the plot in this one that I just couldn't like.

“Sexy, heartfelt--did I mention sexy? With the perfect touch of the forbidden, Melanie Harlow has outdone herself with single dad Mack and Frannie’s story!”
-- Ilsa Madden-Mills, Wall Street Journal bestselling author
Irresistible, an all-new fun and swoony standalone from USA Today bestselling author Melanie Harlow, is available now!
I’m a full-time single dad to three daughters and CFO at Cloverleigh Farms. I don’t have time to fall in love—I’m too busy trying to run a business, keep the red socks out of the white laundry, and get the damn pillowcases on without owing a dollar to the swear jar. Sure, Frannie Sawyer is beautiful and sweet, but she’s twenty-seven, the boss’s daughter, and my new part-time nanny—which means she’s completely off-limits. It’s bad enough I can’t stop fantasizing about her, what kind of jerk would I be if I acted on the impulse to kiss her? (Exactly the kind of jerk you’re thinking.) Actually, I’m worse than that—because I didn’t stop with a kiss, and now I can’t stay away. She makes me feel like myself again. She reminds me what it’s like to want something just for me. She’s everything I ever needed, but nothing I ever imagined. I’m a former Marine. I should have had the strength to resist her from the start. But I didn’t. And now I have to choose between the life I want and the life she deserves. Even if it means giving her up.

I was holding my breath.
I wasn’t even sure why, but it was something about the way Mack was looking at me. And the tension in his body—the taut muscles in his neck. The grip of his fingers on the edge of the counter. The set of his jaw. It gave the impression of restraint. Like he was holding himself back.
Something unfamiliar hummed in the air between us. I could feel it—he wanted me the way I wanted him.
No wonder I couldn’t breathe.
Then he cleared his throat and turned away from me, cutting off the current. “Sure. Everybody needs to make mistakes now and then.”
I’d forgotten I’d even asked the question.
He turned the sink on, rinsed his dishes, and placed them in the dishwasher. I stood there staring at his muscular back, at the width of his shoulders, at the snug fit of his jeans on his butt. If I were his and he were mine, I’d go over and wrap my arms around his waist, press my cheek to his back. Then he’d turn around, winding his arms around me. He’d lower his lips to mine, and--
“I should get you home,” he said, interrupting my fantasy. “Want to grab your coat?”
“Sure.” But I didn’t really want to leave. I wanted to stay in this warm, chaotic house with him and the girls. Pretend I belonged here. Pretend I belonged to him.
A single dad romance.
My second book by by Melanie Harlow and I enjoyed it.
I previously listened to Some sort of Love in Audio and absolutely loved that book, I really need to read more from this author.
Irresistible was heartwarming, sweet, funny and hot in all the right places.
Mac is a single dad to three girls, he works at Cloverleigh were Frannie also works which is how they meet.
Frannie's parents own Cloverleigh and because of heart problems when she was younger they have sheltered Frannie. When her sisters went to school, college and adventures, Frannie was the one who was left at home, home schooled and even when older worked for her parents.
I felt sorry for Frannie, I liked her, she was a sweet 27 year old with no life experiences who also had the hots for her co-worker Mack, a single dad and 10 years her senior for a while.
Mack was charming when he needed to be, he also had a dirty mouth in tbe bedroom and on accasion put of it and his girls had plenty of money in the swear jar which at times was funny.
Irresistible is a friends to lovers story with a great feel to it, very little drama and an easy read. The first book in the series and I Will definitely be looking forward to the next book which is Frannie's sister Chloe.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.
But who said the devil was a he?
In my world, she was out to cause havoc on all our lives.
She’ll use the one thing I care most about to control me—force me into her Elite world, filled with sin, deceit, and power. And under her spell, I’ll lead a sinister brotherhood of seven at one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans.
Seven tasks set forth by the devil herself, promising nothing less than the forbidden fruit of power. What they don’t understand is it will all end in bloodshed and regret.
They call me the alpha. The one in charge. The one with pride bigger than any task I could be given. And my pride won’t let me be anywhere but at the top of the food chain until she gives me what I truly want.
My task is Meghan Benedict.
She’s too pure for me to touch, too good for me to ruin—and the only thing standing in my way to freedom.
Accept your sin wisely, for the tasks given to earn your place are not for the weak...they’re for The Elite.
As they say, pride comes before the fall.
I am Mason Blackwell.
I am Pride.

I finished this with an "Oh my frickin god, it's heating up and I want to get burned"
Now it's starting to feel like a series and one to get excited about! If you like suspense and a little dark, hell yes, I can't wait for the next book now.
7 authors, 7 books, 7 sinners, I for one need to confess that I loved the excitement the whole plot delivered.
Pride AKA Mason has been manipulated and blackmailed into being in the Elite. Mason went from foster care with his sister to Prison and then later released, given his freedom only if he does what is expected of him.
His life has been controlled, his choices have been limited, he has been separated from his sister leaving him one choice for them to stop holding all the cards, making his life hell and that was by agreeing to be in the Elite and be their puppet. Mason went from one hell to another and although he is now free he is still controlled.
Who are pulling the strings? That is a question I am hoping will be revealed as the series continues.
His task is to ruin Meghan Benedict the only problem is he receives his task after meeting Meghan and having a hot encounter, ruining her is the last thing on his mind.
The whole plot is filled with suspense and mystery, there's a lot more of the Elite to discover, who is pulling the strings on these 7 boys who are expected to do their bidding and how can they band together and bring down an organisation that was designed to make them powerful but at the same time is ruining their lives.
I am looking forward to how the whole series unfolds.
Meghan and Mason's relationship was hot and I am hoping to see more of them in the next book, I didn't see much of Rhett and Chastity from the previous book in Mason's story but the timelines do cross so some parts regarding these characters which were in the first book are there but from Mason's point of view.
The plot is continuous so you do need to read Lust first, starting where it all began and how the boys first meet.

Bennett Fox walked into my life on one hell of a crappy Monday morning.
I was late for the first day at my new job—a job I’d now have to compete for even though I’d already worked eight years to earn it, because of an unexpected merger.
While I lugged my belongings up to my new office, a meter maid wrote me a parking summons.
She’d ticketed a long line of cars—except for the Audi parked in front of me, which happened to be the same make and model as mine.
Annoyed, I decided to regift my ticket to the car that had evaded a fine. Chances were, the owner would pay it and be none the wiser.
Except, I accidentally broke the windshield wiper while slipping the ticket onto the car’s window.
Seriously, my day couldn’t get any worse.
Things started to perk up when I ran into a gorgeous man in the elevator. We had one of those brief moments that only happened in movies.
You know the deal…your body lights up, fireworks go off, and the air around you crackles with electricity.
His heated stare left me flush when I stepped off the elevator.
Maybe things here wouldn’t be so bad after all.
Or so I thought.
Until I walked into my new boss’s office and met my competition.
The gorgeous man from the elevator was now my nemesis. His heated stare wasn’t because of any mutual attraction. It was because he’d seen me vandalize his car. And now he couldn’t wait to annihilate his rival.
There’s a fine line between love and hate—and we shouldn’t cross it.
We shouldn’t—but straddling that line could be so much fun.

Rivals by day lovers by night.
I love the cover of this book, its what drew me in.
I listened to this in audio, the narration really brought the characters, their word's, and their actions to life.
I laughed, swooned and was hooked on the story throughout.
This isn't your typical office romance. Analise and Bennett are fighting for the same job role now both of their companies have merged.
Two people who are attracted to each other two people wanting the same job, two people who find love in an unexpected race to success.
Loved it, We shouldn't is another story from Vi Keeland that I didn't want to end.

I’m an all-or-nothing man—100 percent focused on whatever has my attention.
First it was serving my country in the Special Forces. Then it was building my business. Right now it’s the hot blonde at the bar who’s about to become another notch on my bedpost.
But women never keep my attention for more than a night.
Until I peel off Skylar Anderson’s clothes and her mask starts to crumble, showing me glimpses of the girl she’s hiding. She’s funny, sexy and vulnerable and throws me out of bed before I can catch my breath and suggest breakfast.
When I start my last undercover job on a yacht, turns out, she’s one of the crew. I try, but I can’t look away.
Her high ponytail shows off her kissable neck that tastes like summer.
Her short uniform reveals the killer legs that were wrapped around me last night.
And her provocative smile? I know what that mouth is capable of.
I want to explore her body, discover her secrets and sail off into the sunset with her.
I might want to go all in for Skylar, but she should stay away from me. I’ve got secrets of my own and they can only bring her trouble.
This is a stand-alone novel.
“Did I tell you how beautiful you look tonight?”
For some reason, Landon’s compliment didn’t make me wince the way some men’s comments did. Everything about him was different and it had thrown me off kilter. His warm breath on my neck shouldn’t have made me shiver. He shouldn’t ease the ever-present knot in my stomach or have me wanting to slide my hand into his as we walked. He shouldn’t make me feel safe. “You didn’t.”
“Well, you do. Not that it’s any surprise.”
“Because you’re a gentleman who prefers blondes,” I said, nudging him gently with my elbow, trying to lighten the mood.
He pulled in a breath and scraped his hand through his hair. “I’m beginning to think I’m a man who just prefers you.”
I focused on the cobbled street in front of us. “Me?” Had I been mistaken about the ex-girlfriend in town or the girl on Tinder? I tried to hold my breath to ensure I heard his reply.
“Yeah, you. I like you. More and more.”
My stomach swooped, and I tried to think of a response. My head was telling me to run. Far away. I didn’t want to fall for anyone. I’d worked hard to stay single all these years—to keep away from temptation. But now, temptation right in front of me, I found myself rooted to the spot, wanting to know what was next. “Okay.”
“Okay?” he asked.
I nodded, unsure of what to say. Unsure of how I felt. I knew I found Landon attractive.
I knew I liked him too. But I also knew that I’d been single all these years for a reason.
He wrapped his large hand around my upper arm to steady me when I stumbled over a loose cobblestone. We stopped, and I looked up at him as he swept his thumb across my cheekbone. “I’m only going to ask you this once, and you don’t have to decide now, but stay with me tonight?”
“Landon . . .” Somehow, I couldn’t say no to him, even though I knew I shouldn’t say yes.
“Think about it.”
Unfortunately not my favourite one from Louise Bay.
I didn't like Skylar and this happened early on in the book, I found her shallow.
In one chapter she admits she wants a man who has money, she has a tick list, a criteria, it's later revealed this is due to her background from living in the care system but in another chapter, she wants her independence, her own money and doesn't need a man?
I found some conversations repeated too, it was like reading a beta copy? was it rushed, not checked over enough, I don't know? I had issues with the flow.
The story was ok, a hot British guy, Landon, ex forces who has just sold his security business making him rich but as a favour before joining MI6, with a month off and not one to be lying around he goes undercover on a yacht as a deckhand to monitor the owners movements and report back to his friend.
Another romance on a yacht, Skylar is one of the head stewards, same as the last book, it's too similar, the push & pull was the same. Ile be honest I was bored.
I expected action with regards to the spying and bringing down the bad guys but none of that happens.
Landon wasn't the bossy type alpha I expected either for ex-forces.
Louise Bay is brilliant at writing sex scenes but I need more than that to keep me interested and this didn't have it.

A Fun, sexy and erotic romance.
I loved the beginning of this book, three friends all on holiday celebrating their divorce. I laughed so many times at the banter and Witt with these three friends.
Charlie was likeable, socially awkward, a woman with very little confidence, also she was a marriage councillor who ironically had just gone through a divorce. Charlie wakes up after a day and night of many drinks with her friends, she really finally allowed herself to live a little but when she looks at her surroundings she finds herself in the bed of a man who looks like he belongs in a fashion magazine, this is the first glimpse of Charlie's awkwardness and lack of confidence, charlie leaves without giving the man her real name. The scene was funny and even funnier when she couldn't remember a thing and thought he may have been a Mafia boss or something when re-capping the morning to her friends who then began to name the mystery man El Chapo.
“You slept with him and don’t remember how it was?”
I close my eyes and inhale.
“Not really. Bits and pieces.”
She glances at my crotch.
“I’m so sorry your owner hates you.
” She’s seriously talking to my vagina.
Although I could have read about Charlie and her friends all the way through this book because I loved them so much the plot got even more interesting when Fate stepped in and back home Charlie bumped into Elijah who by the way thought her name was Demi because she had also given him a false name, so for the remainder of the story she was Demi and Charlie being Charlie never corrected him and just went along with it.
I loved this fate filled romance, I loved that Charlie got a chance at real love with a sexy man with a dirty mouth who completely swept her off her feet. Elijah may have been a bit of a mystery and alluring, a businessman, a wealthy man but boy did he also have the swoon factor.
"Elijah Banks is a category-5 hurricane, one you stand on the shore and watch roll in. You wait for the waves to strike and drag you out into a tumultuous sea. And now, here I am, just waiting".
Elijah and Charlie begin dating, the relationship has an expiration date, Elijah is moving to London . The countdown to Elijah going away gives Charlie the chance to feel free, have an attitude of you only live once and she tries her best to keep her heart at a distance. Feelings weren't meant to get involved, the days were ticking by but like all plans it doesn't always go how you would expect. Elijah is charming and enticing, I mean, what woman wouldn't fall for Elijah Banks?
"He’s intoxicating. Every hour I spend with him, each kiss, complicates things. It threatens to involve my heart in something that will prove to be fatal".
An interesting plot with hot moments, I loved it. What I couldn't get my head around was Elijah's interest and activity's in a sex club prior to meeting Charlie, I didn't think this fitted in with the plot, there was enough going on without this titbit of info into Elijah's activity's prior to meeting Charlie, it didn't turn out to be a book about a man and a sex club though thankfully, there was a lot more to the story than that trope that I have quite frankly had enough of.
FALLING IN BETWEEN is a lot of things, it starts off feeling like a ROM-com then gets a little more serious and sexy as the plot continues, its about second chances, new beginnings, it's romantic, hot, and heartwarming it's also a recommended read by Stevie J Cole.
