Diane's Review ~ Broken Bonds by Kaylea Cross

Broken Bonds (Crimson Point, #5)Broken Bonds by Kaylea Cross
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The perfect ending to the series…

If you thought this might be a quiet ending, then think again! This final chapter to the series had the entire team family battling an unknown enemy in a fight to the death. Someone was targeting them and they had little time narrowing down who that was. From one heart-stopping moment to the next, everyone was a part of the action…

Even though a compact read, it held all the good things this series has had so much of. Action, tension, suspense, romance, family. Whether two-legged or four, I loved how each character got their moment to shine and remind me why I craved these stories so much. Stellar writing wrapped it all up with a love-infused bow. Bittersweet but a perfect one-two punch ending to the heart….

Shy's Review ~ Layover Lover y Jeannine Colette & Lauren Runow

Layover Lover (Cocky Hero Club)Layover Lover by Jeannine Colette
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Layover Lover is a second chance romance featuring childhood sweethearts who meet again after years apart.

I went into this story interested since I like both authors and both their joint and individual work. But second chance romance isn't my favorite of the romance sub-genres. There are often big misunderstandings that could have been easily resolved with communication and lots of angst in those type of stories. But I was pleasantly surprised with this one and by the end I really enjoyed what I'd just read. Their time apart really had meaning for them, even if they didn't see it that way at first.

I felt like this was a story of growth. Both main characters Zack and Jolene were likable and well written. Jolene didn't start out with an instant likeability factory for me. But she grew on me more as I started to get to know her.

Overall this was a really good story and one I'd absolutely recommend it.

Diane's Review ~ Ruthless Sinner by A.J. Adams

Ruthless Sinner  (Zeta Cartel, #6)Ruthless Sinner by A.J. Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Pulled no punches….

Wow, did this story happily slam me right back into the twisted world of the Zetas! Coop was focused and successful as he embraced the darker side of life with open arms. His past meant his future was what he made it and no one was going to stand in his way. He would do whatever it took and that covered a whole heck of a lot… Smart, cunning, he was going to be challenged from a surprise encounter. What happened when Spirit crossed his path, threw a huge spanner into everything. Dangerously so…

It didn’t matter though. There was just something about her which quickly meant all that he was would be at risk. At the end of the day, he couldn’t find a reason to regret it, even as both their futures were now in jeopardy…

Before you start, read those warnings! Adult themes, no holds barred violent scenes so vivid it was impossible not to feel it all. Did I squirm on occasion? Definitely, but it didn’t stop me reading at a furious pace, eager to find out what twisty turn was next. A mix of harsh darkness and unexpected (to the lovers) romance created a love story hard to comprehend but easy to imagine…

Shy's Review ~ My Sinful Longing by Lauren Blakely

My Sinful Longing (Sinful Men #3)My Sinful Longing by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My Sinful Longing is another great addition to this series.

I loved Colin just as much as I loved Ryan in the previous book. And I'm always a fan of a smart, strong, single mom who clearly loves her son and wants what's best for him. Elle was definitely my kind of leading lady.

And I just love how the mystery of the Sloan family progresses along with the romance. It's so well done the way the two are blended so seamlessly together. I never felt like the mystery over took the romance, but the mystery was crucial to the plot. There were so many secrets and surprises thrown into the this story. But it worked to keep me hooked and turning the pages. I didn't want it to end becasue I wanted to know what came next.

This book ends with just as many questions answered as new ones arose. Now I'm desperate for the next book. I'm not only looking forward to Michael getting his starring role but also to seeing the conclusion of the mystery.

Shy's Review ~ My Sinful Desire by Lauren Blakely

My Sinful Desire (Sinful Men #2)My Sinful Desire by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I kind of feel like this series just keeps getting better.

I loved Ryan and Sophie. I loved everything from their chemistry to their connection and every thing else. Sophie was patient and understanding when it came to Ryan and didn't punish him just for making a mistake. And Ryan learned and grew from his missteps with her. It was great to read about their evolving relationship.

I loved how the underlying story kept progressing too. That bombshell at the end was epic on its own, but then there were so many other great twists and turns. I didn't want it to end and yet I can't wait to read more about the rest of the Sloan family.

Now I'm off to jump right into the next book.

Demise (The Clans Book 13) by Iris Sweetwater and Elizabeth Knox 
Cover Designer: Clarise Tan


I'm the princess of the Romanian Clans, the woman who will one day inherit it all. The amount of pressure on my shoulders is terrifying. There was a time when I used to care about it all. It was when I was supposed to be the perfect daughter and friend.

There came a time when I realized my parents would love me no matter what. It never meant they agreed with my choices, but alas, their love would always be here for me. 

I'm not your typical mafia princess-- I have tattoos, piercings, and my hair has been every color of the rainbow. I wear ripped denim jeans with fishnets underneath and tight band t-shirts. There's nothing normal about me. 

My fate is inevitable, one day I will inherit the Clans. 

My father has been trying to push a Romanian man on me for years, but I've never been keen on the idea --until now. The moment fresh blood flows through this dry desert. 

Now I only wonder if he'll be my demise. But, I think I already know the answer.
