Review: Vicious

Vicious Vicious by L.J. Shen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was my first book by this author. I loved it. You could feel the chemistry between Vicious and Emilia from the very beginning. I loved it that she didn't just take him back but made him grovel for a while.
I highly recommend this book.

#ReleaseBlitz Everything For Her By Alexa Riley #EroticRomance #Review















Paperback

Amazon US





goodreads-badge.png






















USA TODAY bestselling author Alexa Riley's first full-length novel shows just what happens when a strong, possessive man finds the woman of his dreams.  

I'll never forget the way she looked, so confident and sure of herself. I watched her from a distance. She wasn't ready for me yet. I didn't approach her and I didn't disturb her, but I never once took my eyes off her.  

Mallory Sullivan is ready to start her new life. After graduating at the top of her class, she's landed one of the most coveted internships in the United States. Hard work and determination have gotten her to this moment of living the life she only dreamed of while growing up in foster care.

From the start, I knew that she would be my greatest achievement, so the day I let her go, I set down a path for her. A path to me.  

She never expected Oz to be the greatest culmination of those dreams. But sometimes fate determines who you fall in love with. Who makes you lose control. Who owns your soul.

And then you realize it wasn't fate at all…

I've wanted to care for and protect her since the first moment I saw her. I've constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her, could give her the life she deserves.  

The time has come.
















PREFACE
Miles

I’ve watched her since the beginning.
It’s funny, but I don’t really remember much before her. It’s as if I could split my life into two halves. Before her and after. I remember my life with my parents, and I remember getting into college, but it’s all gray before her. Until the day I saw her, there was no color. But once my eyes landed on her for the first time, it was like when Dorothy landed in Oz and she opened the door. The world went Technicolor, and she was my very own Glinda the Good Witch.
I was twenty-two years old the first time I saw her. She was seventeen and competing in a state-level high school math competition.
Yale University asked me to represent them as a student judge, and I nearly declined. The state of Connecticut is small but houses one of the greatest Ivy League colleges in the country. One that makes becoming a standout almost impossible. I was among the top one percent in my class as a senior at Yale, with a major in statistics.
The only reason I’d accepted the invitation was to play a part. Many expected me to follow in the footsteps of my father, and I wanted them to believe that, but my end goal was a little different than anyone knew. I was on the path of revenge, but playing a part would help me on that path. Rubbing shoulders with the same men my father did, even if it left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Agreeing to judge the competition was life-changing. The bitter taste in my mouth altered that day. A sweetness took over. I wanted it. Needed it.
I’ll never forget the way she looked, so confident and sure of herself. I watched her from a distance, like you would a lioness in the wild. I didn’t approach her and I didn’t disturb her, but I never once took my eyes off her.
I found out later she was being sponsored by her high school so that she could attend the competition. She had no family and was being raised in a group foster home, so her school funded the trip. She was smart, and they wanted to see her succeed, which she did.
I saw so much in her as she competed. She knew all the answers and was absolutely sure each time. She trusted her instincts, and they didn’t let her down. There was so much potential in her just waiting to be unleashed. I wanted to sit down and have her tell me everything, anything, as long as she talked to me.
She swept the competition and won first place in her division. I was strangely proud of her.
When she walked out of the hotel ballroom after the competition was over, I let her go. It was the hardest thing I’d ever had to do. But I knew that if I went after her too soon, or too fast, she would run. Not only was she too young for me, but something about her told me she was the kind of woman who came along once in ten thousand lifetimes.
This wasn’t to be rushed. It was to be savored.
I may hate my father, but I’ve learned from his mistakes. I’m going to use those mistakes for my own advantage. He’s smart but sloppy at the same time and it’s been showing. But I know if you want something, you work hard for it, plan out all the details to make it yours.
From the beginning, I knew that she would be my greatest achievement, so the day I let her go, I set down a path for her.
A path to me.
No one knows it’s been me behind the curtain, pulling the strings. I’ve constructed everything in our lives so that at the perfect moment, I could have her.
The time has come.

Wow. It seems like I've been waiting for this book forever. It was sooo worth it. I just didn't know how this longer book was going to be able to compete with their short ones. Let me tell you it surpassed it tenfold.
Run out and get this book ladies. I highly recommend it.

#MyReview Peacock by Nora Flite #RomanticErotica @noraflite

Peacock Peacock by Nora Flite
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

~Recieved volunteer copy from author~

This book has all that and then some! Nora Flite can take and tease you on the pages like noones business, and that's why you get it read asap! Cause you must know what happens next!

Tazz makes a deal with a co worker/ friend as they use a date app from work which could get them in deep if found out. It's simple, make the blind date fall for you... If it works, Tazz will be alil bit richer... The anagram shows her an this blind date of being almost 100% compatible, so what's the harm, like I said easy right?
Although like most people, there blind date isn't Simon, a very hot, alpha male type, tattooed, biker, smooth talker, an knows what buttons to push to get a woman on her knees real fast.

I absolutely loved this Deliciously written storyline! The Erotic scenes were very nicely detailed, makes you feel like you're watching an in some naughty way like you're there, Almost!
Both Simon and Taz I loved there characters, and there emotional flaws, and connections, but also oppositions. The book was smooth to read throughout. Was so much fun to read!

Nora Flite wrote another tasty home run
Warning: Peacock causes hot dreams after reading! You were warned!

5 stars across the board

#MyReview Sweet Venom Gena D. Lutz #Paranormal

Sweet Venom Sweet Venom by Gena D. Lutz
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My name is Cassis Dark, and I am a Spider Venin.
Very interesting paranormal read, with a very different type of breed for the main character that I have ever read. Cassis is a badass assassin, a heroine,helping those in the grips of the night queen. Along with her friend Kris, a kickass scorpion venin, and Rue a newly changed snake venin. Throw in werewolves, vampires, succubus, fairies, and hellhounds, and it's an all around blood bath.
I thought it was a unique storyline , with very distinguished characters, the author went out of the normal bounds to write this , and for that deserves 5 well written stars.
This is an action packed paranormal read, no steam , but I still thoroughly enjoyed.

Marked Box Set Marked Box Set by Elena M. Reyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Buy Marked Set On Amazon

Everything about Maya called to me. She dominated my fantasies in more than one way; I’d never wanted to mark another’s flesh like I did Maya’s. To leave my stamp of ownership on that tight little body for the world to see would be the sweetest pleasure.

This is the first time I've read from this author, and it won't be my last. This box set is about Talan, and Maya aka bitty . Talan, pure alpha , owner of a tattoo shop , never into dating did the one night stands , and hung out with his buddies from the shop until bitty walked into his shop and into his life. We get to see as there at times too slow relationship develops , causing some over the top sexual frustration, teasing, and Talan going into very possessive, jealous, rages at times.

“Quit it,” I snapped then pushed my c**k between her thighs. “It will be my hands, mouth, or c**k that will give you what you want. The longer it takes for that to sink in, the more pain you’ll be in.”

Bitty a bit younger than Talan , studying to become a marine biologist, causes any enemy right from the start. A very jealous one night stand , Janice, Talan's receptionist , starts on Maya right away , and later things get much worse ending her employment at Talon's shop. She's overly obsessed believing she and Talan are together. The woman is a real piece of work.
As the stories edge on so do the love blossoming between the couple, friendships, the steamy scenes, a solid plot, and the ending.
I thought the author did a great job tying everything all up together, and I really enjoyed the bonuses as well!

jompsynopsis
Out of the darkest evil will come the strongest love.

The Bratva is changing, but whenever there's change, there's resistance. I have to prove I’m one of them or else I’m dead.

I wasn’t prepared for what they wanted. They gave me a young and beautiful woman, to defile and break.

With a gun to my head, it's not like I have a choice.

I've never met a woman like her. Damaged, just like me, but with a clever mind that she knows is a dangerous weapon, and curves for days. Every second I spend with her, it becomes less about business, less about the darkness I'm trying to leave behind, and more her. About us, against the world.

We're going to rise above the shadows the Bratva have cast on us.

They made a dangerous mistake. They bound her to me in a way that those monsters could never comprehend. She has a part of my soul now, and I have a part of hers. Soulmates, in a way.

I'm a bad man, but I'm going to do right by her. I'm going to prove to her that even in the darkness, there's always something worth fighting for.

I’ll kill them all for her. When it’s all over, and she doesn’t need me for revenge anymore, we won't be able to walk away from our love. She’s been taken by the hitman, and I won’t let her go.

A full length Standalone Romantic Suspense novel. No Cliffhangers. Safe from cheating. Dark romance. Explicit language & swearing.

Rebel Rebel by Liv Brywood
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I'm kind of on the fence with Rebel. Some aspects I loved some I didn't. It was slow until about 60% into the book. Then it picked up a little.
At one point the author said he was a black bear then she said he was a grizzly. So I'm not sure what kind he  was. I did love Zack's bear though. I loved the ending. I also liked Zack's recipes at the end. I might have to try that.

Bio
I am first and foremost a reader. I have been in love with reading since I was a little girl. From the Boxcar Children to Pride and Prejudice, I have lived and breathed every type of book. One day while looking for a certain book I was interested in reading I found I couldn't find it. A friend told me to write and I thought she was crazy but decided to give it a try. 80,000 words later and I can officially add writing to my love list.
Reading is like breathing in, writing is like breathing out. - Pam Allyn
While reading and writing are my passions, my two children are my world. I love being a mom and can't imagine my life without my two beautiful miracles. I hope one day they will see that as long as they put their heart and soul into something they can accomplish anything they dream of!
