Tormentor Mine (Tormentor Mine #1) by Anna Zaires & Dima Zales

“There is no beauty without ugliness, just as there’s no happiness without sorrow. We live in a world of contrasts, not absolutes.”

I love this author writing, I devoured this book. Usually, too much inner dialogue drives me crazy, but it worked.

It all worked for me.

Peter is the best kind of Anti-hero, his obsession is downright romantic.

“I want her. It’s completely irrational, and wrong on so many levels, but I want her.”

I like how one minute I’m rooting for Sara, and the next I’m happy she got caught.

I liked Sara she was strong and smart. She knew she had no options, and she did what she had to do.

I think all dark readers will love this book, even those who aren’t will probably enjoy this on some level.

Good stuff.

Buy Me, Sir by Jade West

I used to be obsessed with Jade West, not like Melissa is with  Alexander because that chick is coo coo.

crazy

I mean I was uncomfortable, and that’s saying something.

Alexander is into some hard core shit, but Melissa wants what he wants, she will do anything just to have him.

So basically we have 2 types of crazies who fall in love and have some kinky sex.

Now  Jade West can write a damn sex scene.

My problem wasn’t so much the writing or even the plot, it was just long.

Like way too long.

I was skimming to get to the good stuff. tenor

I know, I know party foul.

So it’s a solid 3 stars for me, long story but sexy nonetheless.

Venom & Ecstasy (Venom #2) by S. Williams, Shanora Williams

The first half of this book was almost too sweet for me, and it fell flat. Thankfully it did pick up. This wasn’t as sexy as the first one. I still liked it, but I can’t pinpoint where it lost stars, I really did expect more from Draco.

bored

This book is about Gianna’s road to discovery and healing. We get a lot of answers about   Draco. While I expected more from Draco, I was even more disappointed in Gianna. She was supposed to be this strong vengeful queen. She kind of just fell in line, I mean she did act out, but not for the right reasons?

As a dark reader, I expect the heroine to fuck up, I almost look forward to it.

spankdon't make that face

Gianna really took to getting in trouble to a whole new level, and it kinda of set the rest of book, leaving us with a broken heart at the end.

I loved the writing, but I hated the way it ended, but I look forward to the next book.

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

 October? With that ending?

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.

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.
