Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release Date: February 21, 2017







He thought he lost her decades ago.

Half-demon, half-dragon shifter Ian McCabe is hellbent on getting back the only woman he’s ever loved. When Fiona O’Riley kicked him out of her life decades ago, he thought she was gone for good. Now that she’s back, nothing will stop him from claiming her. But she wants nothing to do with him—or his family.

She’ll do anything to save him.

Fiona knows that Ian is the only male for her. The only way to keep him alive is to stay away from him. But when tragedy strikes and they discover a wicked agenda for the mass murder of humans, they must work together to take down the enemies that threaten everyone. But there’s so much more on the line. As their undeniable desire intensifies, they’re faced with an unbearable choice. If Fiona and Ian succumb to their temptation, mating could be the last thing they ever do.

Length: NOVEL
Author note: Saved by Darkness can be read as a stand-alone novel with an HEA and no cliffhangers.


His brother flipped open a thin manila file on the desk and revealed an 8×10 glossy of…


Ian blinked once. Twice.

He stared at the picture, feeling his entire body heat up. It had been years since he’d seen her. He had a picture of Fiona, but it was from decades ago and it was in one of his safes—along with other treasures. That was not a myth about dragons—they loved treasure. Given her modern style of dress, this was taken fairly recently. “What is this?” His voice was always raspy, but even more so now.

Rory flicked a glance at Liberty before looking back at Ian. “This is what I wanted to talk to you about. Finn wants to speak to this female. She lives on the outskirts of his territory. Not in it, but close enough. And we needed to know if she is a trustworthy female. I know you know who she is, but I don’t know the nature of your relationship.” He stared at Ian questioningly.

Ian stood abruptly. He’d shared almost every part of his life and history with Rory. Fiona was the only thing he’d left out of that narrative. He simply couldn’t talk about her. It hurt too bad. Made his dragon want to take over, to burn everything and everyone to ash. “She’s trustworthy.” Without saying anything further he strode from the room. He heard his brother curse softly behind him, but ignored him.

Rory was lucky he hadn’t burned a hole in the ceiling and just flown out of there. Which yes, was insane, but Ian wasn’t in control now. He needed to get to the Stavros estate as soon as possible. The Alpha wolf who ran this territory wouldn’t be happy to see him since he didn’t plan to call first, but the male could just deal with it. Seeing Fiona’s picture again had his most primal nature clawing to the surface.

He couldn’t even convince himself that he’d buried memories of her because it was a lie. He thought of her every damn day. The woman lived inside him, was his mate. It didn’t matter that they’d never crossed that final line and mated. That he’d never marked her—that she was mated to another. Another female would never do for him. Now to know that she was somehow nearby, close to Finn’s territory… He was going to find out everything from the Alpha.

Then he was going to see her. He knew he shouldn’t. She was mated, taken. She’d broken his heart into a thousand shards and gone off with another male. Another male her family deemed worthy. Too late he realized she’d done it to protect him, that she’d sacrificed her own happiness to keep him alive. Or it had been an attempt to—but he didn’t need anyone’s protection. He would have kept them safe, alive. He just wished she’d known that, trusted him enough.

Now there was no logical reason to go to her. Still, he would see her. He had to.

Header Saved by Darkness

True PNR Romance PERFECTION!!!

Saved By Darkness goes straight to my top 3 all-time-favorites PNR!!! After Taste of Darkness I thought Katie Reus couldn’t possibly give me anything better since it was paranormal perfection in writing, but this book proves me wrong, because it sits right there alongside it, on the top of the pyramid!

The present of the story starts when a photo of Fiona is revealed to Ian, in a quest for information on the female dragon. This single act opened up old wounds, but also the beginning of this second chance tale…

He couldn’t even convince himself that he’d buried memories of her because it was a lie. He thought of her every damn day. The woman lived inside him, was his mate. It didn’t matter that they’d never crossed that final line and mated. That he’d never marked her—that she was mated to another. Another female would never do for him.

Ian and Fiona met many years – fifty two, to be exact – prior to the present events of the Darkness series, and their attraction was instantaneous. A true case of love at first sight. 

From very different backgrounds, but with the same lonely existence, their secret romance develops at the speed of light and they make plans of mating and sharing an eternity together. 

But life is a bitch, and in this case it takes form in a despicable family, that resorts to any means to separate them, and to their heartbreak, successfully.

And even after all these years one thing is certainty that they couldn’t destroy: their love.

Half dragon shifter, half demon. The only male she’d ever loved. Still loved. He was a few feet behind Finn, his expression fierce and determined as he made his way to her.

Of course that things aren’t easily solved upon this reunion, as endless questions, fifty two years of them, need answers.

Why hadn’t she come to him then? Maybe she’d still been trying to keep him safe all these years. Joy and rage pumped through him in equal measures. She wasn’t mated and they’d lost so many damn years.

These answers were important to Ian, but not more important than the ecstasy he felt to know that Fiona wasn’t mated, completely free for the taking. Oh, and he sure intended to take, because this time, she wasn’t getting away. He would make her his…

He’d been alone when they’d met, wandering with no purpose. Still felt like he was, some days. Because without Fiona in his life, it was as if he was missing a vital part of who he was.

… Which she already was. Or better yet, never stopped being. Not even once, in those 52 years, did she love him any less. 

And he made her think of her homeland. Made her think of home, period. Because at one time, he’d been her home.

She’d never given her family a reason to come after her, had never shown interest in a male for that very reason.
Well, because her heart already did—and always would—belong to Ian.

A series of events from the equally enrapturing sub-plot take place, which end up involving them all, as well as most of the main characters from the previous books of the series, makes them put their confrontation and reunion on the back burner, but not truly, because feelings that intense can’t be controlled. With them working together it was evident that their chemistry would blow up and reveal itself. Specially given Ian’s OTT alpha attitude, where Fiona was involved! LOL

“I’m not letting you go, Fiona,” he murmured before brushing his lips over hers. She tasted like heaven. And his.
Only his.
“I’m not going anywhere.”

She had no chance of refusal. Not that she wanted to, because of that she had no doubt, Ian was hers, as much as she was his. She was made to leave him once, she was never doing it again.

When she’d left him, it had been like cutting off a limb, leaving part of herself behind. And she had, essentially. Because Ian was a part of her, embedded in her skin, her soul.

I adored this book so very much, and one of the main reasons for that was the love and loyalty of this couple. Staying faithful and true to each other, even when they had lost hope, during that long separation really warmed my heart and made, in my opinion, their love unquestionable. This right here is the reason for which Romance is my preferred genre, for EPIC love stories, like Ian and Fiona’s. The other reason for my love for this book was that Ian was the personification of everything I want in my literally hero: strong, loving, caring, loyal and devoted to his heroine to the max, no matter the circumstances. And to take it up a notch he was a true alpha, which made his loving side that more dreamy… 

He knew himself well enough that once she was gone he wouldn’t last regardless. His heart would simply stop beating without her.

There would never be anyone else. Not if he lived a thousand lifetimes.

She was his life, his everything.

Add to that the dirty talking, and who could resist?! Their lovemaking scenes were fantastically well written, and their build up, given their insane chemistry, and their dragon and demon sides, was just as rewarding! They were HOT in every way possible! Hello… Dragons!!!! 😉

“Want to feel you come around my cock,” he whispered darkly. “Want to hear you say you’re mine.” There was that bite of darkness to his words again.
 “I’m yours.” She could never be anyone else’s. That was a fact she knew without a doubt.
“Say it again.” He thrust harder.
“I’m yours, Ian.”

It was an absolute pleasure to see again some of the past main characters, and little tease on Gray and Ophelia’s story, wow! I can’t wait to read more about them!

This book really worked perfectly from start to finish. The character development, the believability of all the scenarios and creatures created – specially if we take in consideration we’re talking about the supernatural universe her – where Katie Reus really transports us along with the characters through all these world in a way that makes us feel we are right there besides them and sharing their experience. The interconnection between all these installments even though they all can be read as standalone deserts merit on itself, and it’s one of the reason’s for this is one of my all time favorite series. All of this, coupled with the most perfect love story, how could we not get addicted?! But it sure is the best kind pf addiction, and I can wait for my next KR’s hit! 

“Would you want to live without me?”
 Tears flowing freely, she shook her head.
 “Then don’t expect me to live without you. You’re mine, Fiona. Have been from the moment I laid eyes on you, from the moment you tried to warn me off fighting your brother because you were worried I’d get hurt. Don’t you dare expect me to live a life without you! You go into the afterlife? So do I. Simple as that. If we have a day left, I want to enjoy every second of it with you.”

As long as they were together, they could face anything. For the first time in a long time, she didn’t feel alone—and she knew he didn’t either.

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: December 27, 2016

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.



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.


Everything For HER really was EVERYTHING!!! Heart melting, panty combustion inducing Romance at its best. The first full length novel by Alexa Riley was one of the most anticipated releases EVER, and it comes as no surprise that they created an unforgettable story that we devour just as ferociously as their short stories! Pure and Perfect Smutty Romance! Talk about overachieving!

One word: Perfection! ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

You know the old adage “if you love something, set it free?”
It’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.
The dumbest thing I’ve ever done.

I loved her. I lost her. Hell, I let her go. And then spent five miserable years without her.

To cope with the loss, I put pen to paper and wrote her a love story, knowing when she was ready she’d hear the words I couldn’t say all those years ago.

Turned out, not only would she hear them, but when Hollywood came calling, I made sure she got the lead role. After all, no one else could portray the character whom she’d inspired. Now she’s within arms’ reach and finally, she’ll know the truth in my heart.

Because that other cliché, “Actions speak louder than words?”
I’m going to prove it.
My words may have brought Ava Banks back into my life; I have to be enough to make her stay.

The air around us was silent save for the crickets chirping off in the distance. The cool Cincinnati breeze nipped at my skin while I waited for his reaction. When I’d started writing this novel, it had been an ode to my past love. My past life. But then it’d taken on a life of its own and become so much more. Which had made it that much more poignant. That much harder to fathom the one word that’d been haunting me for years.


At long last, he turned to the final page and sucked in a breath. My stomach twisted in knots because he was about to read the end. And I didn’t know how he’d interpret it. Half scared he’d tell me that I’d lost my mind and no one would ever want to read this story, especially with that ending.

He didn’t make me wait long. As his head slowly rose, I was taken aback at the tears shining in his usually cheerful eyes. This man, who had always been like a second father to me, had been reduced to tears by my words. My words. Words we both knew for whom they were meant. And, instead of calling me a fool or attempting to kill me, he watched me with tearful appreciation, switching between nodding and shaking his head as if trying to process it all.

I didn’t know how to react, so I simply stared at him, waiting for him to say something. Anything.

He closed the manuscript and set it on the table in front of us before taking a long swig from his whiskey glass. I followed suit and enjoyed the smoky burn that did little to soothe my nerves.

“Jesus Christ,” he muttered, his eyes locking in on mine. “Tucker. You did it. You fucking did it,” he whispered, seemingly unashamed of his emotional display.

I nodded, the same emotion welling up inside me when I remembered the ending of my first novel. So many love stories begin with the girl who got away. Mine wasn’t any different. Not only in my novel, but in real life as well. Ava Banks was, and always would be, that girl for me. But, instead of slipping through my fingers, she’d made the conscious decision to leave. And, like most dumbass men, I’d let her. Hell, I’d pushed her away. I’d regretted it ever since.

But, now, I was hoping like hell I could get the second chance Trevor did. Hoping like hell my story would turn out differently than his. But, either way, I was putting myself out there, as terrifying as that was. She finally, finally would hear the words I couldn’t say all those years ago.

Now, I just had to wait to see what she’d do about it.



Wordless, that’s how I am!!!! What an amazing and PERFECT journey!!!!

I know I’ve already said this very recently but what can I do when the most perfect and what became part of my TOP, best books of this year (immediately on my all time favs list) landed on my e-reader the same month?! Be freakin’ over the moon, floating on cloud nine, that’s what I am!
Tessa Teevan outdid herself and created the most perfect second chance Romance! Word I couldn’t say is undoubtably one of my top three All Time Favs in the trope and such an epic love story, that I will no soon forget, or better yet, EVER! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“Romance and poetry, ivy, lichens, and wallflowers, need ruin to make them grow.” ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

They say money is the root of all evil, but sometimes, evil lurks in the most unlikely places.

Calla Lily Armstrong spent her whole life shielding her heart. Now she’s ready to break down her walls and see what’s hiding on the other side. With the help of her new friends, Poppy Gentry and Sienna Miller, the three band together to find their happily ever after. One Wallflower at a time.

Former Atlanta Homicide Detective, Devin Hawthorne, moved to Savannah for a change of pace and a fresh start as a Private Investigator. He finds it right under his nose in the form of a Southern beauty who drives him to distraction, and deadly secrets that threaten her very life.

Rated mature for language and sexual content.



PERFECT!!! That’s what this book was for me. Absolute and undeniable perfection, from start to finish! I was already in love with CP Smith’s writing, but this book took my devotion and amazement to a whole new level! I adored every single thing about Calla and Devin’s story! They were just as perfect as their book! Wow…. 

Calla Lily – adore the name, btw – has locked herself in her bookworm isolated life, since an accident stole everything she loved the most from her, as a child. She never recovered and her doting aunts were the only people she truly allowed to penetrate the fortress she built around her heart. Her relationship with her aunts was incredible, and as CP describes, from their strength to their independence and quirkiness, it really transported me to the Practical Magic. They were fantastic!

“No tears, sugar. We’re Armstrongs, not bleedin’ heart liberals. Suck it up,”

They had gotten the idea from the movie Practical Magic. They loved that movie, because they said it reminded them of our relationship. Minus the witchcraft, of course. However, instead of midnight margaritas like they drank in the movie, my aunts preferred mojitos.

But these amazing aunts and their love for her, didn’t make up for the fact that deep down she felt truly alone, like she was barely living.

All that changed with when a handsome stranger moved in next to her – and her aunts – and awoke feelings in her that she never felt before, pushing her to take action and fight for something more in her life, something that deep down she has been longing for all along…

“I’m not expectin’ much, though. I think fallin’ in love happens by chance. Serendipity. Like you walk into a room and bam, you just know when you lay eyes on them they’re the one.”

I want someone who will be a shelter from a storm, a beacon of light in a dark world. I want to feel safe, secure that what we have is as important to him as it would be to me. I want heat, passion, and friendship.”

The true dreams of a romantic soul! What she wasn’t aware was that serendipity had already worked its magic and Devin was the personified version of all her wishes. In the most delicious of packages, of course, LOL!

Scanning his hard lines and muscles, I stopped on his fantastic ass. Michelangelo himself couldn’t have sculpted one that firm, round, or bitable. If he had, it would have been called Michelangelo’s Devin.
But Devin’s backside was in a stratosphere all on its own; it was its own masterpiece.
It was Devinangelo, naked butt from the gods.

Devin has just step aside after ten years working in the force, and hope that this move for Savannah is the fresh and fulfilling start for a new stage in his life. But Savannah proves to be so much more for this smoking hot alpha, than he was hoping for, specially when he meets his next door neighbor and sparks fly as result of their magnetism. Calla must truly be some kind of witch, because he was beyond captivated!

She had the face of an angel, the lips of a seductress, but an innocent quality that called to his baser needs. His needs to pursue, to claim—to fucking protect.

Obviously, things were not as simple as they seemed and between tearing down her walls, solving her first detective case and protecting the stubborn woman and her friends from their antics, Devin had his job more than cut down for him, and he was more than willing to fight, because he knew that she deserved all that and more. 

“You can’t choose who your heart wants. It doesn’t work like that. All you can do is follow it and hope that when you find what you’re lookin’ for, it wants you too.”

“What I’ll admit is that a woman like that would be worth lyin’, stealin’, or killin’ for.”

“It’s her eyes, isn’t it?
 He didn’t have to think about why he was attracted to Calla. It wasn’t a single thing, but the whole package, so he answered without hesitation. “No. It’s her heart, her courage, her ability to be so fuckin’ innocent in a world full of shit that bein’ around her is like steppin’ inside a goddamned shower, makin’ you feel clean for the first time in your life.”

Devin and Calla were truly amazing together, and I adored seeing their relationship develop and grow strong after their obvious insta-love. CP Smith gave us such a rich context and deep look into their feelings: doubts, fears, cravings, love and passion, that I felt their bound grow and blow right along with them. And their chemistry transported to the bedroom – or cottage entrance, lol – was off the charts!!! Here, once again, Devin proved to be an OTT alpha ALL the way!!! God Lord… *Cue fanning myself*

This look was lust personified. It was primal, possessive, and all-encompassing. The world simply ceased to exist when a man looked at you that way.

“All you need to know”—he whispered, his voice deep and husky—“is that the second my lips touch yours, it’s over. You’re mine.”

But the true awesomeness of this extraordinary book doesn’t reside only in their relationship development and romance blooming, or even the enticing suspense given by the side plot! CP Smith gave us in WALLFLOWERS: THREE OF A KIND, something even more special: a bond full, deep-seated friendship, a true sisterhood that warmed my heart and opened Calla’s world in another brand new direction, a new kind of love – sister love. And what better twin souls to herself than Poppy and Sienna?! The world would never be the same now that the Wallflowers were here!

“In case you missed it, we have a couple of things in common. One, we’re all named after flowers. And two, we’ve been sittin’ against the wall watchin’ life pass us by. I don’t know about you, but I, for one, don’t want to be a Wallflower anymore. I say it’s time we stood up and took a spin around the dance floor. I think it’s time that we three Wallflowers take life by the horns and made our own destiny. . . What about you?”

“I’ll go first . . . For courage to break down my walls and let love in.”
Poppy raised hers, smiling. “For wisdom to not judge a book by its cover.”
“Definitely somethin’ you need to work on,” I giggled.
We both looked at Sienna, and she raised her glass, lifting it to the ceiling. “For lettin’ go of the past and seein’ what life brings our way.”

Wallflowers are for life. Wallflowers always stick together, and Wallflowers never leave a woman behind.

 All these elements coupled with Calla and Devin’s love story, transformed this book into something amazingly PERFECT for me! Like I’ve said before, I already loved CP Smith’s brand of Romance writing, but Wallflowers: Three of a kind took it to a whole new level! The author has an extraordinary gift, and this book just makes it shine through! I’m so addicted to these characters that I can’t even tell you how excited I am to read Poppy and Sienna’s stories! More than counting down the days! <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of the things not meant for you,”

“That’s what life’s about,” he mumbled in my ear. “Findin’ someone who completes you then makin’ ‘em yours.

“Calla, it’s my job to protect you, not the other way around. To make sure you’re happy, that you feel full instead of hollow, and it’s my fuckin’ job to make sure you never feel lonely again.”
“Then what’s my job?”
 “To love me.” Her lips began to tremble, and it took sheer strength of will not to reach out and crush her to him. But he continued instead. “To crave my touch, to trust me with your whole heart. To fix me when I need fixin’, to lay your troubles on my shoulders so you don’t have to carry them. To need me more than air. To just fuckin’ love me.”

RELEASE BLITZ + REVIEW: VINES (A Killers Novel # 1) by Brynne Asher



Series: A Killers Novel #1

Author: Brynne Asher

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Release Date: November 1st, 2016




In the Virginia countryside outside of Washington, DC, Addy Wentworth was on a mission to make a new life for herself. When the opportunity arose, she settled in horse and wine country. Experiencing more than her fair share of tragedy and loss, she had plans for her future, one where failure wasn’t an option. And not just because people and cows were counting on her. She’d poured everything she had into her struggling vineyard, because once she’s in, she’s all in.

After giving himself wholly to the job for ten years, Crew Vega was done. He’d fulfilled his commitment, done his duty, gone above and beyond to settle the score. And the score was high. All he had to do was train his replacements and he’d be out for good.

He had a plan, one that didn’t include getting involved with his new neighbor, a woman who not only kept cows for pets, but treasured her employees as family, and understood him better than anyone ever had before. But when he learned a high level CIA target being investigated for treason was keeping tabs on her?

No, he never planned on that.

And like everything Crew Vega did in life, when he goes in, he’s all in.

Warning: I’m a devout member of the mama club and don’t want to get kicked out by angry mamas. If you aren’t eighteen, turn around, go drink your milk and eat your veggies, it’s good for your bones. And go to bed early, you’re still growing, your body needs sleep. And don’t text and drive. And be nice, sit with the kid who sits alone at lunch. And read a PG-13 book, it’s good for your brain. And go tell your mama you love her. Chop-chop, run along now. I’ll see you back when you’re eligible to vote.

BLOWN AWAY!!! That’s how this book made me feel, and that’s how I expect you to be after reading it. Completely blown away with Vines!

It had been some time since Brynne Asher has released a book – if you haven’t yet read her Carpino Series, you MUST!!! – but I had not forgotten what an incredible writer she is, and this book only reinforced it in a way that I will never forget. What an incredible story!

Vines is the first installment of Brynne Asher’s new series, Killers, and what an beginning it is! It gets you hooked from the very prologue, and Crew and Addy’s story is the perfect intro to what it’s looking up to be an extraordinary series.

Crew Vega, a recently retired ‘Soldier of Fortune’ has spent the last ten years of his life on the dark, in every possible way. After all this time he thinks he will find the peace and quiet he needs in a remote enough place, which will allow him to train the next generation of professional assassins/killers.

Of course all his well planned solitude goes down the drain when a stubborn and charismatic cow – yes, you read correctly and I promise you will love these cows’ role and participation on the plot, lol – decides to cross his fence as if it’s her right, much to her owner’s aggravation, and brings Addy to his path.

Addy Wentworth has been living for the last year and a half, a peaceful and successful life as a vineyard and country business owner. She made a huge bet when she decide to acquire the struggling business, but due to her hard work and full dedication she succeeded and is recognized for it. So control and profound reasoning and pondering have always been ingrained in her, until Harry – her cow – decides to take a tour, and ends up inforcing her meeting of her new, dark and handsome, neighbor.

  A simple enough situation that will end up changing their life forever, because even after only a couple of words exchanged, their physical reaction to one another it’s impossible to deny. 

A smirk spreads across his scruffy face, and as if out of nowhere, a dimple appears.  Smack dab on his left cheek.  A dimple.  Proof there’s soft under the sharp.  Hell if that dimple isn’t the hottest thing I’ve ever seen, even if it is covered in scruff, sweat, dirt, and hidden under a sharp toughness.

Damn if I don’t feel that in my dick at the same time my chest seizes.  When the muscles ripple up my back, I have to clench my jaw to overcome it.  This strange sensation is foreign, something I’ve never experienced.  I can appreciate a hot woman, but my entire body seizing?  I’m fighting the urge to charge across the room to get her away from him, when I don’t even know why he’s here.

They are both caught of guard with their bodies and minds reaction to each other, because never before in their life someone caused any of these feelings in them. It’s all so new and so foreign that even though they don’t understand them, and after the initial shock, they are curious and expectant to where it will lead them.

With Addison at my side, I find myself wanting nothing more than to fall into some sort of normal with her.  I’ve never had normal, whatever that is.

I absolutely ADORED both main characters, and yes, Crew may have made me melt on more than one occasion, but come on, I’m only a hot blooded female, how could I not?! 

This time I kiss her slow.  She tastes and feels like she did earlier—perfect—but salty from her tears.

He was so enchanted with Addy, and that just made him even more captivating for me. Anyone could see their attraction. With that sizzling magnetism, how could they not? There was no hiding there!

It’s easy to see she can dish back your shit but still be all woman for you to enjoy, protect, and love on.  You put that together with being targeted by old KGB, there’s no hope.  You’re a fuckin’ goner.”

And come on, anyone could see it in him, and even with the teasing, he was not one bit ashamed by it and that had me sighing. Even during a tease he managed to come around and make the situation HOT!!! Lordy, the mouth on this man!

“Trust me, Grady.” I turn to him one last time before leaving.  “There’s nothing soft on me when it comes to Addison Wentworth.”

Crew really was the PERFECT damaged hero. He never thought he had a change of something so good as Addison, so when they start getting involved we can really feel his care and affection for her. Like she is the most precious thing in the world for him.

“Never wanted something so much.  Can’t stay away from you, can’t even get you out of my head.  I’ve never had a shot at anything good, let alone someone like you.”

He sees her as his reward after his life of barely surviving, lonely and mechanic existence, and he says and shows it to her over and over. Really, completely swoon-worthy, unforgettable hero! Directly to my top ten list of ‘all time best-book-boyfriends’!

“You’re what I get.  After ten years of doin’ what I needed to do, I settle next door to you.”

“Worth every minute of ten years.  Never thought I’d say this, but I’d do it all again if I knew you were waiting for me at the end.”

Don’t get me wrong, Addy was just as incredible, and given her secretive past, she has proven to be a strong and resistant female character beyond belief! No wonder Crew fell for her the way he did! And she was one of the best heroines I have had the pleasure of reading. The way she made me connect with her and feel what she felt really was a testament of the author’s incredible writing talented. Through her eyes, Crew was even more captivating, and I didn’t think that was possible!

For some reason, I can’t take my eyes off his hands.  Hands that have touched every part of my body.  He’s comforted me with those hands.  He’s aroused me, he’s gently yet firmly bound me, he’s washed me, and he’s woken me with his soft touch.

Of course that off-the-charts chemistry and palpable magnetism translated in some scorchingly HOT sex scenes and their no-bounds, all-in attitude and his dominant and filthy mind took it to whole new level. They were so perfectly and organically written, they became an extension of their feeling and smoking proof of their love. They were perfection!

“Why do you always talk about it in the third person?”
“Because my cock is its own person when it comes to you.”

After everything is revealed and they are absolutely transparent and vulnerable with each other that made all the scenes that more deep, where we could really feel their personal relief and appreciation for what they had in the other’s full acceptance! A real case of the truth will set you free, where their love really shined through!

“Not once did I think I could be who I am with anyone, let alone someone like you.”

I don’t care if he has to go back to keep his friend safe, or if he decides to go back on his own to take care of justice his own way, ridding our world of threats.  Even if this does make him a killer.  I’ll wait.  I’ll hate it, but I’ll wait because he’s mine, and having him back is more perfect than anything I could’ve dreamed.  Because I love him.

She knows it all and accepts me, my choices, my life, and she did it for me.


Imagining my life with Crew is a thing of the past because I know it’s real.  He’s the foundation of my future, and knowing this, I can relish the present and live my life.

I apologize for the extensive quoting, but really, there was no way to translate the perfection of their – actually Ms. Asher’s – words. You can see for yourself that really, they could be any more perfect, and again I have to repeat myself, but really, there is no better word to describe this story.

And like the main characters weren’t enough to have us completely enraptured in this book, Brynne Asher gave us a splendid group of secondary characters that created a stunningly humorous and light dynamic in the plot and made me fall in love and want more of them, almost as much as Crew and Addy. And these teasing with the potential couples for the next books, wow! But the author also showed us a incredibly appealing vulnerability in these men, these killing machines, that left me simultaneously shocked curious to find out more, because they’re so much more than their steel hard facades.

The life these men have chosen seems to come with solitude and loneliness.

I can’t wait for Grady and Maya’s story!!! Seriously!!! After this beautiful and unforgettable book, I can’t imagine it getting any better, but with these enticingly delicious elements that she already presented for the couple, I think Ms. Asher will yet again surpass herself and knock it out of the park once again, and I will be counting down the days and stalk her mercilessly – I apologize in advance, LOL – until the next book comes out! Please hurry up, I want it NOW!!!!

Suspenseful Contemporary Romance at its BEST! I give it 5 Perfect ‘Let’s Live’ Stars, but I would really give Vines 5 THOUSAND stars!

What an extraordinary story!!! Loved EVERYTHING about it, from start to finish! Crew and Addy’s story is now one of my Top Ten Favorite Reads of the year (and considering how many books I’ve read, that’s saying something, lol)!!!
Wow, just wow….

“Never once had a homecoming.  Never had a home to come to.  I thought I was traveling, seeing the world between jobs, but I wasn’t.  I was wandering with nowhere to go.”

“When I was gone, I made the decision to start living my life with you.  I’m done lamenting death—I want to live.  Don’t you want to live with me?”

“Move away from death with me.  Let’s live.”

Header Burn

BURN by Suzanne Wright is my All Time Favorite PNR!!! No words to describe how much I ADORE this extraordinary and magical read!!! I’m going to try, but it will be hard, because with how much I loved it, it’s hard not to simply gush all around, fan-girling, because it’s THAT good!

Harper Wallis is a very special demon, with an independent streak a mile long, a fierce protective instinct with those she loves, and a brutal honesty, not much can shake her. That is until Knox Thorne crashes into her life and doesn’t intend to move from there…

Knox is one of the most, if not the most, powerful demons in the world. He is the Prime of his huge lair and let’s just say, with how important he is, evidently, he has a reputation.

There were many other rumors about Knox: that he was dangerous, calculated, notoriously sexual, and someone who lived by his own rules on his own schedule.

When they meet for the first time, even though both try to brush it off and disguise it, the chemistry and pull in immense and instantaneous in all the levels, but it’s when they touch that they discover their unique psychic connection. Harper is his one and only anchor (definition is perfectly explained in the book, but each demon has his on anchor in the world, it settles them, give then stability and with that power, amongst other things)

Of course after her past, Harper is not one to let go and just follow blindly, especially in something so delicate as this life long commitment. But Knox fast realizes this and why, and let’s just say, what he wants, he ways gets, no matter how much, and how he needs to fight for it. And he wants Harper, more than anything! 😉

Evidently, he wasn’t denied things often. Well, Harper did like to introduce people to new experiences. It was more of a calling, really.

Harper certainly doesn’t make his task easy, but where is the fun in that?! Their banter, and her back and forth were some of my favorite things in this story. her sassiness, intelligence and perceptiveness really shone through, and for the first time in his long life, Knox was surprised at every turn by his little sphinx. And surprisingly to him, his demon part instead of being aggravated by this, it agreed with him, and wanted to possess the she-demon, just as much as his human counterpart.

I absolutely loved this couple, it fast became one of my all time favorite fictional couples. I equally loved  them as individual characters, and that doesn’t happen often for me. They were undeniably PERFECT in my opinion. Specially perfect together.

“Oh, little sphinx, do you really think I can’t sense how powerful you are? In any case, that doesn’t matter. I don’t want you for power. Or even to stop me from turning rogue.”

“Then why?”

“Because you’re mine. I don’t walk away from what’s mine.”

The magnetism and dark (not strangely, since they’re demons) sexual energy is always present in their interactions, and when they give in it’s beyond explosive! Their sex scenes are fucking spectacular and in them they let go and show they true nature, so be prepared because Knox’s dominant and possessive nature, is elevated in those scene and coupled with his filthy talk, he really becomes lethal to the feminine genre! 

No one kissed like Knox Thorne. He poured every ounce of himself into it, making it just as erotic as sex itself.

Suzanne Wright created, IMO, the PERFECT paranormal, that I’m always ready to read and re-read! The individual development of the characters, the unrevealing of the intricate side plot, the secondary characters, that make us wish for all their individual stories, is abso-fucking-lutely BRILLIANT!!! And now the continuation of Harper and Knox’s story is almost here (September 1st) and I couldn’t be any more excited! I want more Dark in You NOW!!!! <3 <3 <3

“They’re not freaky or a defect. They’re unique, just like you.”

For those who need more Harper and Knox, there’s Blaze, also out

Header Perfect Rage

EXTRAORDINARY! Nashoda Rose created the most emotionally beautiful, heart wrenching, soul touching, and without a doubt, absolutely unforgettable story in PERFECT RAGE! 

Connor and Alina – Catalina – meet eleven prior to the present time set of the book on Afghanistan, where Alina went as a magazine photographer on a piece about an orphanage and Connor was on the end of his mission before doing the tryouts for the Canadian special forces.

Their chemistry was undeniable, from the very first moment they met, and during this month they fell deeply in love and recognized in the other their soulmate.


It was an awakening of my body. I didn’t know if he felt it, too, probably not, but for me it awakened something inside me. Like it lived and breathed with all these new emotions. 

It was a free fall as he thrust inside me. Not knowing where I’d land. If I’d survive. But nothing mattered except the beauty in the fall.

Sadly, an evil reality came crashing down on them, in the most atrocious of ways, and they were separate, tortured and broken…

Teaser Perfect Rage 1

Without revealing to much, since the journey is key in this book, they both went through hell, but thought they would always have the memory of their love.

Carved. Etched. Engraved. Fuck, it was everything. Her standing there was an image I’d never forget. Didn’t need a fuckin’ photo to remind me.

Or so they thought… 

When they were able to chemically erase every trace of the old Connor from his memory, and transform him into a killing machine, they destroyed Alina right along with him. But also shown us how she NEVER, not even for a moment, stopped believing in their love, never stopped believing in Connor.

Through it all, every heart breaking moment, she was their unmovable anchor, and his safe harbor.

At any moment, life could throw a hook and drag you under, but if you had that one person to hold onto, the fight to the surface was easier. That person was your reason to breathe.

Recovering his memories was devastating to him, he saw no way out of the darkness but still couldn’t stay away from Alina. Their connection was indeniable, and even when he fought it he came defeated every time, because he just couldn’t stay away from him, she was part of him, his sliver of light in a sea of darkness and demons.

Teaser Perfect Rage 2

And that’s all she ever wanted, to be with and there for him. She was wholesome hearty his. The other half of his soul…

“I fell for you, Connor. I fell in love with you a long time ago. I may not have known all of you, but I knew who you were, what type of person. And I loved who I was with you.” 

“You love a man who’s dead. That’s not me now, Alina.” 

“Maybe not. But whoever you’ve become, you’re still the man I love. You’re still him and remembering what you’ve done is killing you. But you know why it is? Because you still have the good parts. If you didn’t care, none of the stuff you did while drugged would matter to you.”

Alina was one of the strongest heroines I’ve ever read. Even with her own personal  brand of torture, she could only think of Connor. She fought for them and their love all throughout the story, and her faith in them never once wavered. All she ever wanted was their love, and their second chance.

Connor… I couldn’t have loved him more. After Kai, in Perfect Ruin, I thought I had found my favorite Nashoda hero, and he could be beat. Well wasn’t I wrong?! I loved Connor and every broken piece of him, which just made him more special. His loyalty, sense of right, devotion and playfulness (prior to the programming drugs) we impossible to resist, so I completely understand Alina’s fight for them, because damn, he’s more than worth it! His love for Alina was just as pure and soul deep.

“What I feel for her is limitless. There is no end to the love I have for her.”

Perfect Rage really was one of the most beautiful Love stories I’ve ever read and this characters chemistry came through in every single page. Never once did I doubt they were meant to be together. And of course that exploded in their ‘orgasmic inducing’ sex scenes! Lordy, these were some of the steamiest scenes I’ve had the pleasure of reading. They weren’t just having sex, they were indeed communicating with their bodies! These scenes were just as emotionally charged as the rest, even more so. You could feel it transpiring with every touch, with every breath… It was indeed a way for them to communicate their love for one another.

“My mind may have forgotten you, Alina, but my body never did.”

Of course we have some extraordinary secondary characters, specially the MCs of the previous books – which that give us one more look into their HEA – and show an incredible loyalty, friendship and support to both the main characters, even when they least wanted. That’s what friends are for, after all! 😉

“Jesus Christ, why can’t you leave me the fuck alone?” 

“You know why,” Deck answered calmly. “We don’t leave a man behind—Ever.”

Nashoda creates some of the most perfect imperfect characters I’ve ever read and transforms their story in the most unique of ways, approaching serious themes like sex and child traficking, torture, murder, rape, but never in a descriptive, traumatizing way, but getting her point across and creating awareness on the matter. That is a true gift! And even though you get all these points, the main focus of her book, and this is no exception, are the ROMANCE, the beautiful LOVE story, and them getting their own Happy Ever After!

“We’re going to be okay, aren’t we?” 

“Yeah. Not perfect. Not the same. But yeah.”

 “I don’t want perfect or the same. I just want us and whoever we are now,”

It took us eleven years to get here, but we made it because our love was limitless.

THE ENFORCER (Untamed Hearts #3) by Kele Moon

Header The Enforcer

You know that expression we see all the time in romance books, ‘You’ve ruined me for other men’? That’s exactly how I felt after reading this book. Kele, I feel like this book completely ruined for every other book, and believe I say this in the most adulatory way.

First of all, it’s been almost one week since I’ve finished it and I still feel book hungover (there are very few books I can say the same thing about), and while reading it, I had to pause several times, to take a breather, for THE FIRST TIME EVER, not because I was bored or tired of the story, but because my heart was literally hurting for these characters, especially Tino, and I needed a moment to ground and remind myself that it is fiction. That’s how EXTRAORDINARY Kele Moon’s writing is, she really makes us share these moments, scenes and feelings with the MCs. And this is not even counting the times I found myself crying while reading it. So unless you want people to thinks you are going crazy or being hormonal, I advise you not to read the book in public. Yes, it’s an emotional heavy story, but it’s so very much more than that.

I can honestly say that, after this read, I can’t really set this book in my usual parameters, because it’s most definitely NOT a safe read, (it has to many triggers for that) but that didn’t hurt the book in my eyes. You can imagine how good of a book it is if it made me forgo my usual safety/spoilerish quirks.

 And for that reason this won’t be my typical review, because, for the very first time, I don’t want to spoiler it. Believe me when I say that if I were to reveal the ‘safety’ triggers I would destroy the story for you guys.

Half of the richness of this book is on the unveiling of the events, and the journey on itself. The other half comes from pure Kele Moon gift. It may seem like an exaggeration, but there is no other way to explain it because it’s the deceivingly natural result of her extensive research (underworld, dance, language, cultures), realness and rawness of her characters, and incredible scene setting, that really make her writing unique. In my opinion, she is one of the most talented romance writers of our generation, and I can’t wait for everyone of you to enjoy her gift and realize that.

This book is the third book of the Untamed Hearts series (Spinoff of the Battered Hearts Series), and the first of the two parts of Tino, Valentino Moretti’s story. 

Teaser Enforcer 3

After reading both series, I knew that this series was getting a darker setting, we are, after all, getting more and more into the mafia’s underworld, to whom these men, unfortunately, will be forever linked by their name, Moretti.

The attempted murder of Brianna, by order of the head of the Moretti family, is the trigger for the cataclysm of events that will occur from this point forward, because for Tino, she is the one thing they were forbidden to touch.

Teaser Enforcer 1

But before we can embark on these events Kele takes us to the Moretti brothers’ past, from the event that changed these siblings lives forever, Romeo’s arrest. And this is the core of the book, the beginning of Tino’s life as we know it and all the events that transformed him in the man he is in the present, the Enforcer.

His stolen childhood by abuse and neglect are truly heartbreaking, and without a doubt some of the most emotional moments I have ever read. Even so, a faint trace of hope always seemed present, something to hold on to…

“This is Neverland. The rest of the world doesn’t exist anymore. The sooner you forget it, the easier it’ll be,” Carlo said softly. “Learn to fight your own battles. We have to be better than them. Stronger. Faster. Smarter. Lost Boys have to fly.”

Tino shows us the true meaning of unmeasurable  love, loyalty and sacrifice for his siblings. He will, literally, do anything for his brothers and sister. 

Teaser Enforcer 2-2

But there isn’t only sadness, we get see when Tino and Brianna first meeting, and their bond developing throughout the years. Their love is a force of nature,

Together, they were like a firework. 

Beautiful in the night. 

A dusty smear of ash in the morning when reality crashed in and ruined the high. They just weren’t ever meant to be more than one brief, amazing explosion of memories that should’ve been enough to sustain them. 

But it hadn’t been. 

Not even close.

Tino even shows us that his love for Brianna goes one step further, because he worships her. She is lifeline throughout all sacrifices. She is everything to him.

Brianna was a strong and loyal character. She was always there, to support and love him, no matter what. She was everything he needed.

Let’s talk about their chemistry together, because, my friends, if there is one thing that Kele know how to do perfectly, is create some nuclear, of the charts, chemistry. When these two where in the same room it was palpable, and when touching, whether it was dancing or kissing, it exploded, and nobody else existed for them. And the sex scenes, boy oh boy, let’s just say they are need-a-cold-shower-after HOT. 

Teaser Enforcer 4

It wasn’t the easiest road for them, as we see, but by the end of this part, even though it’s not a HEA, it’s also not, in my eyes, a cliffhanger. We can anticipate what will happen next, but it doesn’t make you want to scream and throw you e-reader at the wall! LOL

That said, I can’t wait to put my greedy hands on the second part of this story, so please Kele, don’t make us wait to long…Pretty please… (*cue puppy eyes*)

And I can’t finish without saying….TINO, YOU MATTER!!!
