Torrid (Sordid #2) by Nikki Sloane

Nikki Sloane can write. Now before I do my review, just let say, that this is nothing like Sordid, which isn’t a bad thing. For some, it may even be a good thing. While I loved Sordid, and it’s questionable morals, some didn’t. Which is understandable.

So if your steering clear due to the first, no worries, this one is dark, but not dubious consent dark.

I genuinely liked Oksana, while she was in over her head, she still held her own.

“I might not outsmart the devil, but I was willing to deal with him.”

Everyone has a agenda, including Oksana. She is betraying everyone while trying to make an ally, and keep herself alive.

It’s tricky, and a satisfying plot.

Vasilije is a great anti-hero, he’s cold, ruthless, and bit selfish, but he also has some redeeming qualities, which makes for a believable romance.

It was sexy and suspenseful.

Why 4 stars? It was a bit repetitive at times.

 

Eleventh Grave in Moonlight (Charley Davidson #11) by Darynda Jones

 October? With that ending? 

tumblr_ncbd1dtkcz1tv4k5po1_500

I loved this book, but of course I’ve been wrapped up in this series. We got less of Reyes this go around, which wasn’t a bad thing. This is more about Charley. She is learning more about herself and becoming more self reliant.

We get to see more of Amber and of course we get to meet new people. The main case is about the Foster’s, which if you remember are the people who abducted Rayes when he was just a baby.

Rocket wasn’t in this book, which makes me sad. I love that man. We didn’t get much of Charley working with the departed, which for some reason is my favorite part.

This book left me with a lot a questions, which I hate that I have to wait till October to have answered, but it’s fine….

 I seriously kept turning the page hoping for more, it was sad and pathetic, because that ending….

Blackwood by Celia Aaron

5 “What if I say please” Stars 

Well that was unexpectedly awesome. 13562512

I got this book when it came out, and read like the first 3 pages and thought eh this might not be for me. It was on kindle unlimited so not hard no foul. Boy was I wrong. This book is right up my ally. Mystery, suspense, and some hot taboo sex.

anigif_enhanced-19719-1404844663-3

I devoured it. 

Once I got past the first chapter. I was sucked in.

Elsie is digging for answers, and she will do anything to get them. Even if it means leading her professor on and forging documents. She uses her archaeology degree as a front to get the answers to her father’s disappearance.

She’s a strong heroine, which I love.

Garrett Blackwood could dirty talk the panties off of me.

“If you said ‘please’, I’d fuck you so hard that you wouldn’t be able to sit down, walk, or breathe for days without thinking of my cock inside you.”

panty-drop

He really does try to keep Red at a distance, but Red is determined to bring out the beast. I can say I didn’t see the ending. This was some good stuff.

Naughty Boss by Whitney G.

Okay so I haven’t done a blog post in awhile. To catch up, I’ve bought just about every new book out, that I will read…. so about 5 LOL

 I had to take a step back from blogging due to some haters apparently, I romanticize the wrong things

thats me

That’s a story for another day…

So this book was everything, and I’m biased so there’s that. I love Whitney G’s books.

I love the alpha males she creates, and she did perfect with Michael.

He was the dick we love to hate….

yes-please

The banter was great, Mya was a  great heroine. All in all,  a quick sexy read.

Marriage Games (The Games Duet #1) by C.D. Reiss

So this went live yesterday, and I read it all yesterday, my only regret is that I didn’t savor it.

Some reviews said they had no words, and I can relate. When it comes to this book, I don’t think,  I just feel. The emotions are tangible.

can't breath

Loss 

Jealousy 

Anger 

Love

Fear 

Pain 

Diana wants out of her marriage, and she is trying to do it clean. While she doesn’t love her husband, she doesn’t want to hurt him or drag it out.

Adam, on the other hand, is playing to win, but what is he trying to win?

“I wanted her to go. I wanted her to stay. I wanted her on my terms. I wanted her on any terms. I wanted to be cured of the disease of love. I wanted to be cured of want.”

Adam is a true sadist emotionally and physically.

hot-damn

We get both POV’s, but we  get Adam’s first. Just like him, we can’t see why Diana left him because we felt their love in his POV.

Perception

One word.

I hated some parts of this book. I hate that we couldn’t stay in the present, I hate that I had to deal with Serena.

I not mad

I know your seeing hate, and I still gave this 5 stars.

In the end, we see the whole picture (maybe not everything), in that picture Diana and Adam’s past is part of it, and sadly Serna is too.

At this point, this is my review, if wait much longer I’ll over analyze and it just confuse myself.

If this review doesn’t help you decide to read it, I understand.

If you down for angst, BDSM, and you’re a fan of  C.D Reiss then I think you’ll enjoy it.

Neighbors (A Twin Estates Novel Book 1) by Stylo Fantome

5 messed up stars 

Like I’m seriously just staring at the book, repeating myself,

Thats messed up

 

 

I honestly don’t have words. I don’t know where to start this review.

I may just use Gifs.

So to be honest, I thought this book was going in a entirely different direction. I didn’t see that ending coming, and sure as hell didn’t expect a tear to roll down my cheek.

So since I’m wordless, let me try to explain the reactions using GIFS

In the beginning we meet Liam 

 

ladies

We meet  Wulfric

so this is

Katya is up front with both men, it’s causal, and she spreading her sexual wings, so to speak, or to be blunt, her legs. I fell in love with both of them for different reasons, and I was okay because as I said before I was 99% sure I knew the direction of this book.

Then, I didn’t see where this was going. 

confused

Then the shit hits the fan, and at first I’m like. YES! suspense

Then I’m like WOW, no

No!

 

Then I was like damn, that’s really messed up…

right_in_the_feels-500x300

Like.

And then its over

damn-it

So I’m going to need the next book….. yesterday 

I’m sorry if this review doesn’t make that much sense, but I really don’t know what to say.

I fell in love with 2 men, and I loved Katya. It’s a sexual, emotional, wild ride. I gave it 5 stars because I  felt legit emotions while reading this book.

Lastly for readers who don’t like triangles, read my spoiler and decide.

You can find the spoiler on my goodreads review.

Retrieval (The Retrieval Duet #1) by Aly Martinez

this

I thought this was going to me some type of messed up triangle, or something like that, but it wasn’t. Thank God

This was a about a couple who lost each other due to grief, and neither one of them knew how fix it, and they spend 2 years avoiding it….

But when the face each other, it’s explosive.

“I’d never, not once, seen Elisabeth with just my eyes. My heart was just as much a part of the way I viewed her as my retinas.”

Roman and Elisabeth’s love can be felt through the pages, and it was refreshing.

sogood

It’s also a story about a mother’s love, and how she will do anything for her child.

So there are flashbacks and 3 different POV’S and while I would usually complain like the picky reader I am, this was done well, and the story needed it.

 

This book will draw you in till the last page, and I was cheesing at the end, although I wasn’t shocked, I was extremely happy how it ended.

I look forward to next book.
