Unchained by Helen Hardt

5 out of 5 stars

Fangtastic

I loved this book for so many reasons. #1-completely different from the rest of Helen’s books #2- wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Oh I definitely knew that it would be a whole new series that takes over my life; and I was 100% correct. Helen dives into the paranormal world of vampires and makes it her own. You won’t be reading anything like you’ve read before. I guarantee that! Helen is unique, truly one of a kind.

I don’t want to really give any plot details away, so I’ll keep this part brief. Just know that you will absolutely see vampires in a new light and you WILL fall in love with Dante! Seriously, he’s mine! He has so much to overcome and one saucy ER nurse is just the person he needs. The rest you have to read to see.

It’s a quick read, so you can just relax for a while and jump into the paranormal world of Helen Hardt!

Unchained (Blood Bond Saga Vol 1)

Also Available Now – Blood Bond Saga 4 & 5

by #1 New York Times Bestselling author Helen Hardt

Release Date: 2nd October

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Part one:

Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding.

Part two:

Dante Gabriel is angry. Someone has violated the woman whose scent has left him emotionally paralyzed, and he’s become unhinged. He vows to protect Erin Hamilton—mostly from himself.

Erin has other ideas. She’s determined to figure out the strange man who keeps leaving her aroused and unsatisfied. When she pushes Dante for answers, he goes looking for them himself. What he uncovers could put Erin in mortal danger, with him as her only salvation.

Part three:

Now that Dante Gabriel recognizes the blood bond Erin Hamilton has formed with him, he has unwound a little. Still, he must find a way to convince her that she must complete the bond for both their sakes. Vampires are rapidly dying out, and humans have long considered them nothing more than a myth. How can he make her understand?

Erin has fallen in love with Dante, but she’s still confused and angered by his behavior. To keep her mind occupied, she immerses herself in a mystery that has evolved at work. Patients have been disappearing from the hospital, and Erin begins to wonder if one of the ER doctors might be involved.

Part four:

Vampires are real. That fact has Erin Hamilton thinking she’s headed for crazy town. Still, she can’t deny the intense emotion she experiences when Dante Gabriel sinks his teeth into her neck to take her blood. She’s in love, and her body responds to his bite in a way she never could have imagined.

Once Dante tastes Erin’s blood, he’s addicted forever and cannot live without it. He’s heartbroken when she demands that he leave and never return. But neither can live without the other now, which puts them both at risk.

Part Five:

Once bonded, never broken. The words give Dante Gabriel hope…until he remembers where he first heard them. The information he needs is hidden in the ancient Vampyre Texts, but he encounters obstacle after obstacle while trying to decipher them, even when someone from his past returns to help.

Though she tries, Erin Hamilton can’t resist Dante. When he comes for her, she always submits willingly, despite her best intentions. She loves him but still can’t bring herself to accept him as vampire…even as other vampires, lured by her arousing scent, begin to close in on her.

Hardt & Soul

Review – Faux Pas by Natasha Madison

5 out of 5 stars

Natasha continues to rock my world with every single book she releases. She is versatile and can write extremely emotional to ROM com, to sexy and witty. This book was a breath of fresh air that made me swoon, laugh, cry, and stay glued to my kindle. Let’s not forget about the STEAM factor!!! You will need some air conditioning to cool you off. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

These characters will draw you in and have you head over heels in love with both of them. What starts as a short fling turns into so much more, and Natasha nailed this one (no surprise there). Perfect book and just what I needed to get me out of my reading funk.

Meghan

Five days in Paris sounded like a great idea for three friends. Especially when amazing wine was in play.

It didn’t matter that our rented “apartment” only had one bed, and barely enough space to breathe. We were in Paris and our motto was c’est la vie.

Nothing would faze us, not even the rude waiter at the first restaurant we went to, or the insanely hot manager who was insulted when a bottle of wine was returned.

Nothing could bring me down or knock me off my path to the best vacation of my life.

Alex

I had six days in Paris and then I’d go back to my wine vineyard. It was smooth sailing until three “Americans” came into the restaurant and returned my newest full-bodied, savory creation.

I ignored her until she stormed out of the restaurant looking for a taxi at one in the morning. I couldn’t leave her wandering around the streets of Paris, could I?

I’d give her a ride, make sure she was safe, and my duty would be done. Except, was it?

Something about her pulled me.

This could be a vacation fling. After all, there is no real reason for her to know my interesting secret.

I’m France’s most eligible bachelor.

This faux pair is almost a faux pas…

He makes his way through the tables, straight to ours. “quel est le problème?” What is the problem, his voice comes out gruff, the smell of his musk hitting my nose.

“Le vin n’est pas bon,” The wine isn’t good, I start saying, and I look at his eyes that look almost black. I’m not sure if it’s his natural color, or if the restaurant is dimmer now than before, or maybe it’s just his form blocking the lights. “il a un goût de vinaigre.” It tastes like vinegar, and I’m not sure it was the right thing to say or not. He stares at me, not saying a word. “Taste it.” I give up on my French and switch to English. “You’ll see.”

I’m waiting for him to say something back, but he doesn’t. Instead, he turns around and walks away from the table, going into the back. “What the fuck just happened?” Diana says in a whisper. We all turn to see where he went, checking to see if he is going to storm back in.

“She insulted his wine,” Kate says, leaning in and speaking softly.

I throw my hands in the air. “It was shit,” I say louder than I wanted to. “You guys said it yourself.” Looking around, I see that a couple of the tables are looking at us, but the majority of the tables are deep in their own conversations and not paying attention.

We don’t say anything else when we see the waiter come back with a new bottle in one hand and a new wine glass in the other. He uncorks the wine, then pours a touch in and waits for me to taste it. I don’t say anything to him; I just nod my head, and he puts the bottle in the middle of the table. “I guess I will pour the wine,” Kate says, picking up the bottle and pouring it in everyone’s glass. I pick up the glass of wine and bring it to my lips. The cold glass is resting on my lips when I feel someone staring at me. I look down and take a sip, then look around, and I guess it’s just me because no one is looking in my direction.

By the time we finish dinner, we’ve drunk two more bottles. and everyone is laughing and having a great time. The food was amazing. “We need a taxi,” I say. Getting up, I grab my jacket, shrugging it on.

“I think we can walk to the corner that way,” Diana says, pointing at the sky, “and flag one down.”

“If we go that way,” Kate says, pointing at the sky, “we need to call NASA.” We all laugh out loud while the waiter comes to take the bill from us.

“Merci.” We smile at him as he walks away, still not saying a word.

“Yes, thank you for my glass of ice cubes that you only brought me one of even though I asked for seven,” Kate says, laughing while trying to whisper. “And thank you for pouring our wine.”

“Okay, let’s go,” I say, walking to the front door.

“I’m going to ask him for a taxi,” Kate says, going to the waiter who stands at the hostess counter and asking him for a cab.

I watch from the front door as Diana stands behind her while I look in my bag and pull out my lip gloss.

“Pardon.” I hear Kate say loudly, and I look up.

“Vous pensez qu’après tout ce que vous avez fait ce soir vous méritez que je vous appelle un taxi ?” I stand here with my mouth open in shock when he answered her. Do you think after everything you did to me tonight that you deserve that I call you a taxi?

Kate starts. “What did I do? Expect you to do your job?” she says, and Diana grabs her arm, pulling her to the front door.

“Did he just say …?” I ask her when we are standing outside in front of the restaurant, the wind blowing my hair in front of my face. I turn my head, making it fly back the other way.

“So it’s safe to say,” Diana starts with a laugh, “we aren’t coming back to this restaurant.”

“Take a picture of it, and tomorrow we can go on Yelp and leave a bad review,” Kate says, grabbing her phone from her pocket.

“Let’s just go,” I say, and the three of us look around at the desolate street.

“What time is it?” I ask and take out my phone. “Shit, it’s one a.m.”

“Yeah,” Diana says. We look right down the dark street and see some traffic coming from up ahead. “We should walk to that street and flag down a taxi.”

We all nod and start walking with Kate in the middle. “He was such an ass,” Kate says, “and the boss or manager was an even bigger ass.”

“Seriously,” I say, turning to them. “It’s like it was my fault his wine was shit,” I say, and then we all stop when a white four-door Audi stops next to us, surprising us.

“Get in.” The voice sounds familiar, but the street is so dark it doesn’t help. I lean in a bit to see his face, and I’m shocked when I see it’s the manager from the restaurant.

When her nose isn’t buried in a book, or her fingers flying across a keyboard writing, she’s in the kitchen creating gourmet meals. You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…

Review – Guilty As Sin by Meghan March

5 out of 5 stars

Oh Meghan Meghan Meghan! You are seriously a rock star! Continuously you surpass your perfection with each book. I don’t know how that’s possible, but it’s the only way I can describe how truly amazing each book is. You somehow surpass perfection. I don’t know how you do it. You are the queen of cliffhangers, and you made me love them. I never thought I would say that but you perfectly end each book with my jaw dropping to the floor and a gasp.

This book is full of twists and turns that keep you on your toes. You will go through all the feels. EVERY SINGLE ONE!!! I know you’re probably thinking hey give me details. I absolutely will not because I will not spoil pure perfection for anyone. Just one click and get comfortable because you won’t be putting this one down til the last word, and even then you won’t want to part. Talk about a book hangover. I got a book COMA!

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

RICHER THAN SIN – BOOK 1 AVAILABLE NOW

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever

Review – Fighting For What’s His by Laura Kaye

5 out of 5 stars

I really don’t know what to say right now. I mean, Laura has left me in a book hangover of epic proportions. Every emotion is felt in this book from happy to heartbreaking to complete bliss!

One of my favorite things about Laura’s writing is that she truly brings light to what veterans go through when they adjust back to the civilian world. It’s not as easy as people think. You can tell that Laura does her research and delivers one absolutely perfect book after another.

You will love the dynamics between these two. They don’t have it easy, by any means but they find a way to come out with the best ending. Twists, turns, emotional roller coaster rides- we get them all. In short, this was another absolutely perfect book by Laura Kaye. One perfect book after another. Can’t wait for what’s next!

What has a sexy, bad-ass veteran hero…
A feisty and independent heroine who won’t hesitate to stand up for herself…
A forbidden, best friend’s younger sister conflict…
And a forced-proximity roommates-to-lovers situation that creates all kinds of sexual tension?

FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS—the second standalone title in New York Times bestselling author Laura Kaye’s Warrior Fight Club series! FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS is now available! Grab your copy and join the Warrior Fight Club world today!

About FIGHTING FOR WHAT’S HIS (Warrior Fight Club #2, 9/7/18):

This fight club has one rule: you must be a veteran…

Resisting her only makes him want her more…

Private investigator Billy Parrish is good at three things—fighting, investigating, and sex. MMA training with the other vets in the Warrior Fight Club keeps his war-borne demons at bay—mostly, and one night stands ensure no one gets too close. But then his best friend from the Army Rangers calls in a favor.

Shayna Curtis is new to town, fresh out of grad school, and full of hope for the future. With a new job starting in a month, she’s grateful when her brother arranges a place for her to stay while she apartment hunts. But she never expected her roommate to be so brooding. Or so sexy.

Billy can’t wait for Shay to leave—because the longer she’s there, the more he wants her in his bed. To stay. He can’t have her—that much he knows. But when fight club stops taking off the edge, Billy lets down his guard…and starts fighting for what’s his.

Shayna saw Billy through the windows to the gym with the fighting rings where his club met. He was on his knees facing another fighter—a woman with a long black braid—while a bigger group knelt around the two of them. Shay had just enough time to appreciate that the club included women veterans before the woman attacked him.

For a long moment, they grappled with each other until Billy managed to flip the woman and pin her to the ground.

Three visceral reactions rocked through Shayna.

An almost animalistic appreciation of Billy’s brute strength.

Arousal at the memory of Billy pinning her against the wall.

And jealousy that another woman was experiencing the feeling of the weight of his body instead of her.

Shayna’s heart tripped into a sprint as she stood there, slack-jawed and wanting…

Suddenly, Billy sprang into a kneeling position again as the woman got up and moved to the outer ring of people, and it was clear that some sort of trash-talk being thrown between them from the looks on their faces and the way the others were laughing and clapping.

And then Mo moved into the center with Billy. As big as Billy was, Mo…Mo was like a mountain. His ready smile and deep laugh had earlier put Shayna at ease and allayed any concerns she’d had that she might be invading a space where she wasn’t wanted. But now Mo looked nothing short of intimidating as he stared Billy down.

The men seemed to lunge at the same time. They slammed into each other and worked to pull each other flat to the ground, and then finally they both went down. Shayna couldn’t see who had the advantage around those cheering the two men on, and she realized that she was straining and moving to the side to get a better view.

Whatever was going on, it was much longer before the fighters traded out, and this time it was Billy coming out of the center to join those on the side. A few of his teammates shook his hand before he moved outside of the group to grab his water bottle. And then he tilted his head way back to take a long drink.

And, holy mother of sweaty hot men, Billy Parrish was freaking gorgeous.

Muscles glistening. Shorts hanging dangerously low on his lean hips. Dark blond hair made even darker from sweat. Even the fingerless black gloves he wore were sexy as fuck. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he drank.

Shayna swallowed hard herself.

He wiped his mouth on the back of his glove and capped the bottle again, and then he did a double take as he noticed her standing in the window.

Heat absolutely roared over Shayna at having been caught so blatantly ogling him. And there was a smugness to the almost-smile he wore. But he gave her a little wave and nodded his head as if to invite her inside.

The gesture should not have made any part of her feel gooey, but it seemed her crush on her brother’s best friend had resurrected enough to indeed cause gooeyness. Whether she wanted that to happen or not.

Laura is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over thirty books in contemporary and erotic romance and romantic suspense, including the Blasphemy, Hard Ink, and Raven Riders series. Growing up, Laura’s large extended family believed in the supernatural, and family lore involving angels, ghosts, and evil-eye curses cemented in Laura a life-long fascination with storytelling and all things paranormal. Laura also writes historical fiction as the NYT bestselling author, Laura Kamoie. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two daughters, and appreciates her view of the Chesapeake Bay every day.

Review – Timid by Devney Perry

Timid by Devney Perry

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I just love a good small town romance! Devney Perry continues to wow me with her words and is quickly becoming a top go-to author. From the swoon-filled sweet sigh to the shrieking oh my, Devney Perry amps up the second super star in her Lark Cove series, Timid, with the most delicious twists that turn this sweet small town romance into one riveting roller coaster. This friends-to-lovers story bursts with love and light—a slow burn of swoon and soul. This book buzzes with beauty, hums with heart, and sings with soul. INCREDIBLE!

”You were my risk.”

It was so wonderful to return to Lark Cove! Ahhh . . . I could almost breathe in the fresh air as I inhaled Timid, a tale painted with incredible detail. Set in beautiful lakeside Montana, the story of a beautiful and beguiling heroine, a broken and breathtakingly handsome hero, a combustible connection, a forever friendship, and the force of fate that finally forges these soulmates together is SIMPLY STUNNING.

”I don’t know how to love you.”

I was ENTHRALLED with these charming characters with so much heart. I felt this simmering story of a broken hero, Jackson, and the beautifully-hearted heroine, Willa, the light to his dark who brings him back to life. This story slow burns to perfection.

”I’m standing up for you. I’ll fight for you.”

Like Tattered, Timid is IRRESISTIBLY CHARMING, a sweet small town romance that tears at the heartstrings and never lets go. It’s SWEET. It’s SMOLDERING. It’s STIRRING. It’s SUSPENSEFUL. It’s SPECIAL. The writing is pure ‘melt-your-heart’ MAGIC. SO HEARTWARMING! Timid embedded itself into my heart, and I LOVED every bit of this beauty!

”It’s always been you.”

A MUST-MEET small town romance!

💋💋💋💋💋 simmering and soulful kisses

View all my reviews

Willa Doon has always been shy. Her quiet demeanor was something she’s always embraced. That is, until Jackson Page moves to town. The one man she desperately wants to take notice struggles to remember her name.

Year after year, Willa stands by, watching as the bartender slash playboy drowns his demons in beer and sex. Then one night, he shows up at her door, suddenly aware that the girl he’s seen around Lark Cove is now a beautiful woman.

Except what he doesn’t remember is that this visit isn’t his first. They spent a night together once before. A night he’s forgotten, thanks to a bottle of tequila.

A night that crushed a timid girl’s heart, and set a broken man on the path to heal them both.

Review – Crew by Tijan

CREW FINAL COVER EBOOK

Crew by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I had no idea what to expect or what I’d get with Tijan’s latest sensation, Crew. The thing is that you don’t know what you’ll get when Tijan brings books to life as each one is daringly different. I like the mystery of the unknown. So . . . the blurb? I didn’t even read it. I dove into this book blindly so I could just feel the words. Oh did I feel! Crew hit like a sucker punch—fast, fierce, and furious! Crew ’s words were bombs that made my emotions explode. Dark. Dangerous. Divine.

One line was all it took. One line. The first line. It broke me. I stared at it for minutes and could not stop repeating it in my head. Eight words. Eight words devoured me, dissected me, detonated me. I knew then that the rest of this tale would tear me apart and that it did. Crew broke me in the best way! I LOVED IT!

I met his mouth with mine, and I felt like I was drowning.

A fierce friends-to-lovers YA romance and dark jewel of a read, Crew shines and shatters with cutthroat characters and a spellbinding storyline that’s gritty, edgy, and emotionally rich. Brace yourself, as you’ll fall hard in love with the beautiful and broken heroine—the only female Crew member—who defines boldness and bravery. The quiet but strong and stunning hero will melt your heart too. You’ll love the slow burn of these best friends and Crew members who morph into more. I MELTED for this hero and heroine! I felt so close to these Crew characters. Tijan made me part of the Crew. Or at least it felt that way.

”Your crew is aptly named. You’re beautiful to look at, but lethal.”

I couldn’t stop devouring this addicting read! Crew is DARINGLY DIFFERENT. A darkly entrancing and emotionally explosive page-turner you won’t be able to put down. It pushes you to the edge where you want to just free fall with the words. Full of hold-your-breath moments and edge-of-your seat thrills, this tale is A HEADY HIT WITH AN EMOTIONAL EDGE that’s explosive and enticing. Crew is so bold and badass! A bit dark, a bit dangerous, and ALL THE DELICIOUS FEELS! Crew is an adventure that I felt with my heart. I felt this story from the very first line and never stopped feeling. INCREDIBLE! I NEED MORE!!!

”It’s been you. It’s been goddamn you all my life.”

💋💋💋💋💋 fierce, feral, and feel-worthy kisses

To survive where I live, you have two options.

You can be a Normal–a cheerleader, jock, member of the debate team, or on the yearbook committee. You pretend everything is normal.

Or you can be crew.
You insult us? We hurt you.
You hurt us? We really hurt you.
And if you screw with us, we will end you.

My name is Bren.
I’m the only female in the Wolf Crew–the best, fiercest, and most dangerous crew there is–and we have a rule: There’s no falling in love.

Well… too late.

CREW teaser

Review – Blood Bond book 1 and 2 by Helen Hardt

Book 1

FANGTASTIC

I loved this book for so many reasons. #1-completely different from the rest of Helen’s books #2- wasn’t quite sure what to expect. Oh I definitely knew that it would be a whole new series that takes over my life; and I was 100% correct. Helen dives into the paranormal world of vampires and makes it her own. You won’t be reading anything like you’ve read before. I guarantee that! Helen is unique, truly one of a kind.

I don’t want to really give any plot details away, so I’ll keep this part brief. Just know that you will absolutely see vampires in a new light and you WILL fall in love with Dante! Seriously, he’s mine! He has so much to overcome and one saucy ER nurse is just the person he needs. The rest you have to read to see.

Blood Bond #1

Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding.

Review – Richer Than Sin by Meghan March

5 out of 5 stars

In true Meghan March fashion, she has once again blown me away with the start of a new series. It’s so hard to describe how each series she writes gets better and better even though every book is already 100% pure perfection! Seriously, this woman blows my mind consistently! I never was a fan of cliffhangers, but NOBODY nails cliffhangers like Meghan! She keeps you on your toes but also doesn’t make you wait long for the next book.

I will not say a word about the plot in this book because everyone deserves to take this journey and enjoy every emotion, twist, and turn this book gives you. You will have all the feels and won’t put that kindle down until the very last word. Well done Meghan! Well freaking done. You are truly a superstar.

From New York Times bestselling author Meghan March comes a brand new saga of forbidden love and second chances.

A Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after. Our family feud is the stuff of legends.

Ten years ago, Whitney Gable caught me off guard with her long legs and grab-you-by-the-balls blue eyes.

I didn’t know or care what her name was.

Like any Riscoff worth the family name, I went after what I wanted. We burned like a flash fire until she married another man.

She hates me, and she should.

I objected on her wedding day.

Now she’s home, with those same long legs and man-eater stare, but there’s no ring on her finger.

They say a Riscoff and a Gable can never live happily ever after . . . but I’m not done with Whitney Gable.

I’ll never be done with her.

Guilty as Sin Links:

Guilty until proven innocent.

That’s the way the world works, right?

I’m tired of being convicted without evidence, all because my last name is Gable.

The Riscoffs might own this town, but I’m done following their rules.

If only I could forget just how easily Lincoln Riscoff can drag me under his spell.

Reveling in Sin Links:

Whitney Gable is the kind of woman you fight to the death to protect.

To keep.

To cherish.

I’ve finally learned my lesson, and it’s time to prove I’m the man who’s worthy of her.

I don’t care what it takes, because failure is not an option.

No matter who or what stands in our way—this time, she’ll be mine forever

Review + Excerpt – Respect by Jay Crownover

Respect cover

Respect by Jay Crownover

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Light is easy to love. Show me your darkness.~ R. Queen

I love books bathed in darkness with a sliver of light, as they dig deeply into the depths of hell but somehow find a bit of heaven. Jay Crownover is a mix master of black, shadowy stories that still shine like gold. This master storyteller makes you love the ‘baddest’ of bad boys in her powerful series called The Point and The Breaking Point where the men who sway from criminals to heroes, the boyfriends that mothers would hide from if you brought them home, the boys you should probably run from too. But you can’t help but adore these saints and sinners that snag your heart.

Respect is the story of a broken-hearted but brave princess who has to flee the corrupt kingdom because she thinks the big, broken and bold prince doesn’t see her beyond a young friend. Oh how wrong this heroine is; the powerful prince sees her but does not want to corrupt her. Neither realize the power of fate. Fate has other plans and is the real ruler of this kingdom.

Time was supposed to heal all wounds, but mine felt like it was still wide open and bleeding all over the place.

Scorching, spine-tingling, and oh-so strong, Respect is the perfect fusion of light and dark, heaven and hell, and sin and salvation. Gritty with bits of glam. Dark with bits of light. Dangerous and daring. Respect is a HEADY HIGH! I was ADDICTED to Karsen and Bookers’ journey that is as emotional as it is explosive. I LOVED being back at the Point! I can’t help but become fully vested in these characters—the baddest and bravest boys with the biggest hearts and the bold heroines who stand beside them. From Bax to Booker and Dovie to Karsen, I’ve fallen for every one of the heroes and anti-heroes of the Point.

”Don’t regret this later, Karsen. If you do, it might kill me.”

Fire-hot, formidable, and full of feels, Respect is a fresh spin on romance. Jay Crownover always brings a uniqueness to her words that I’ve called ‘Crownover Crack’ since meeting Rule years ago. From Better When He’s Bad to Respect, The Point and The Breaking Point series are perfectly imperfect stories that slay with strength and soul. Respect is the perfect farewell. A HIGH-OCTANE, HEART-POUNDING ROMANCE that delivers all the way.

”The only person whose touch I ever needed was yours.”

What a powerful finish to a powerful and poignant series! I so don’t want this series to be over. Jay Crownover rocked all of these brilliant bad boy books out of the park! The addicting anti-heroes—villains fused with victors—of the Point will mark your soul, grab your heart, and stay with you forever. Bad has never been so good!!!

It was a place that was so bad, so dark, so lost in crime and violence it didn’t have a name…we simply called it the Point. It was the ending point, the breaking point, the point of no return…it was simply a place where only the strong survived and anyone else was bound to die trying.

A MUST-MEET ROMANCE & SERIES!

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 heart-racing ‘all the respect’ stars

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful princess who called a corrupt kingdom home sweet home.  

Protected and sheltered from the worst the world had to offer, she fell in love with the crumbling city that burned and blazed around her. Every dirty corner, every scary shadow, found a place within her heart. So did a man who was violent and dangerous, just like the streets she claimed as her own.  

He was all business and brutality, except when it came to her. With her, he was calm, caring, and heartbreakingly patient.

He warned her over and over that he wasn’t the man for her, but she refused to listen. She never expected either the streets or their enforcer to hurt her, since she’d given her heart so completely to both.

She should have known the streets in the Point were always going to be savage, and so was the man committed to keeping control of them in the hands of criminals and bloody kingpins.  

Blindsided by a betrayal which cut so deeply she was sure the wounds would never heal, the princess fled the home she loved and the man who broke her heart. Throwing away her rusted, twisted crown was supposed to help her forget. All it did was make her long for everything she left behind.  She told herself she would never go back, but in this tormented kingdom, family is everything. Eventually, she has no choice but to return.  

While she was gone, the people who loved her worked hard to make the city safe, and the man who destroyed her sank deeper into the darkness. Going back shouldn’t feel like surrender… but it does. As this pretty princess hovers on the edge of the unknown, the past attacks with a vengeance. It’s a good reminder that puppy love eventually grows up and turns into something with sharp teeth and one hell of a bite.    

She never asked for the keys to the kingdom. She’d much rather go out and build her own.

~Karsen~

I had no plans to leave the Point. It was ugly, mean, hard, and unforgiving, but these streets were home and I couldn’t imagine being happy anywhere else. This place had long since made my hands and the edges of my soul dirty. It was something I would be hard-pressed to hide should I go anywhere else. I’d have to spend my days trying to camouflage the filth I was so familiar with. Here, no one looked twice at the pretty teenager with shadows in her eyes and blood on her hands. I was one of many.

I wasn’t interested in leaving behind my sister or her fiancé, Race. We were an odd, dysfunctional family, but we made it work.

I didn’t want to be too far away from my mother, who was living in a group home as she slowly, painfully tried to recover from her alcoholism and PTSD from an accident she caused that ended up taking the life of a young mother and her child.

But more than anything, I absolutely didn’t want to leave him.

I couldn’t imagine a day going by without catching a glimpse of Noah Booker. I mean, he was impossible to miss. Six-and-a-half-feet tall, body built like a professional athlete, dark and brooding with the prettiest gunmetal-gray eyes, he was the entirety of every one of my teenage fantasies. I barely noticed the jagged scar dividing one side of his face. White and raised, it cut one of his black eyebrows in half, slashed over a high cheekbone, and ended somewhere under the chiseled edge of his hard jaw. He never talked about it, but Race, Booker’s boss, let it slip that Booker got the scar when he was locked up. Or maybe it wasn’t as much of a slip-up as a thinly veiled warning. Race never kept it much of a secret that my infatuation with his massive, dangerous, ex-con enforcer made him extremely uncomfortable. He’d warned me over and over again that Booker wasn’t for me. And he’d made it clear to the man who broke knees and smashed heads for a living that he was to stay as far away from me as possible.

They called it puppy love. It wasn’t.

To me, it was a vicious kind of love, filled with teeth and claws that I could feel digging at my insides every single time someone patted me on the head and told me how young I was, how much life I had yet to live. This love was rabid, and I was tired of having it on a leash. I wanted to let it free, wanted to let it sink its razor-sharp fangs into the man who had awoken the primal need inside of me. It was only fair he felt the same kind of crushing bite and painful pressure around his heart that I did every single day.

I was solely focused on getting to Booker. It barely registered I was done with high school and had new doors opening all around me. I couldn’t care less about getting my hands on my diploma. A piece of paper with Karsen Carter written on it in pretty calligraphy meant exactly nothing to me. The only thing I was focused on was the fact I was finally old enough to make my own choices. And I’d always picked Booker. Over and over again he was my number one priority.

Review – As Dust Dances by Samantha Young

As Dust Dances Cover

As Dust Dances by Samantha Young

My rating: 5 of 5 stars



Music is the outburst of the soul.

There is nothing more moving than a tale threaded with music. Music that complements and completes the story. Music that makes the story. Music is the key to the heart and soul, and Samantha Young unlocks and unleashes a musical concert of feels in As Dust Dances. From beginning to end, Samantha Young paints a stunning story in vivid detail that hits the heart and sings to the soul. So broken. So brave. So breathtaking. So beautiful.

I was CONSUMED with this romance that’s so raw, so real, and so riveting. Samantha Young brings the reader in—not just with the compelling characters—but with pointed questions, adding another layer of realism to this tale. This heartfelt tale held me captive. An addiction I couldn’t put down. A story I couldn’t let go . . . wouldn’t let go. I ignored real life as I was sucked into a heartbreakingly beautiful world of broken characters, moving music, and a love story of strength and survival with all the feels.

I can’t find all the pieces that used to be me.

Set in Scotland, As Dust Dances is the slow-burning love story of a former pop-rock star who fled America to escape—merely exists as shattered pieces of herself—and the music producer who helps make her whole. Killian and Skylar are perfectly imperfect but perfection together. I felt their story as if it were my own.

I’d never met a man who actually smoldered until Killian O’Dea.

With broken and beautiful characters with off-the-charts chemistry, a moving and musically-threaded storyline, fire-hot and fiery angst, and words so full of feels, As Dust Dances is a journey of the heart and soul. A slow burn of heat and heart. A story of two broken characters stuck in a dark, black and white world, who finally see color. A story of strength and survival. A story of heartbreak, hope, and healing. A story of rising after falling. A story that’s EVERYTHING.

”You’re mine, Skylar Finch. I think somehow I’ve always felt like you were mine.”

This story spoke to me like a song where I felt every word—so broken yet so beautiful—as it sang to my soul. My heart was hit so hard that it both shattered and soared. As Dust Dances is an EXPLOSION of FEELS that I felt everywhere. I felt every word. I FELT EVERYTHING! This broken and beautiful musically-threaded tale MOVED ME SO MUCH!

”I know I don’t yet, but I’ll do everything in my power to try to deserve you.”

As Dust Dances is so powerful and poignant. PURE MAGIC. This heart-stopping romance brings all the feels. I felt every word!!! I cried tears of sorrow, tears of hope, and tears of joy in a tale that touched every part of my heart. My heart was so full that it exploded! I LOVED this story so much! As Dust Dances is still dancing in my heart and singing to my soul.

A MUST-READ romance!!!

Once upon a time Skylar Finch was the lead singer of a hugely successful American pop-rock band. But fame made her miserable. When years of living a lie suddenly ended in tragedy, Skylar fell off the map.

Eighteen months later she’s sleeping in a tent in a cemetery in Glasgow, making just enough money to eat by busking on the streets. She manages to avoid recognition, but not the attention of one of Glasgow’s ambitious A&R executives.

Killian O’Dea works at Skyscraper Records, Scotland’s most successful record label. Raised by his uncle and owner of the label, Killian’s upbringing would have been devoid of affection entirely if it wasn’t for his loving sister. Killian is unflinchingly determined to bring the label more success than ever, and the young homeless woman who busks on Buchanan Street is going to help him do that. Her music speaks to him in a way he refuses to over-analyze. All he knows is that if it can touch his dark soul, it’ll set everyone else’s alight.

Skylar makes it clear that she doesn’t want to sign with him. But when she experiences the dangerous reality of a woman sleeping rough, Skylar has no one else but Killian to turn to. An undeniable connection forms between them. But Skylar doesn’t want the career Killian is trying to forge for her, and when her past comes back to haunt her Killian will be faced with a decision that could ruin him. He must either free Skylar from his selfish machinations and destroy everything he’s ever worked for, or lose a woman who has come to mean more to him than he ever thought possible…
