Diane's Review ~ Renzo + Lucia: The Complete Trilogy by Bethany-Kris

Renzo + Lucia: The Complete TrilogyRenzo + Lucia: The Complete Trilogy by Bethany-Kris
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Fantastic mafia romance!

This was a terrific addition to the mafia romance genre this author does so well! Renzo and Lucia were riveting characters. Their journey from star-crossed lovers to devoted partners was a journey filled with the highs and lows that only love brings…

They were opposites in every way that should matter – family, responsibilities, fortune and prospects. Dark vs light. Those things didn’t matter because when you find the one that is everything, you move heaven and earth to keep them. And that is exactly what they had to do. The crazy path they took, the devastating setbacks, the dark turns that would not stop, showed how much they were willing to do, to give up, to be together…

Be prepared for three full novels and two follow up novellas in a series that will have you hiding (from life) until the last turn of the page.

Jess's Review ~ Bully King by J.A. Huss

Bully King (Kings of High Court College, #1) My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Welcome to High Court, where the wealthy rule the kingdom, and only the best of them will rise to the top.

This is the first book in a new series by JA Huss. We meet the players in this book but the focus is on Cooper and Cadee. Cooper is the Bully King and has been ordered by his father to run this year's summer rush. Cadee is on her way of High Court until she is made an offer she can't refuse.

Cooper's goal in life is to make Cadee miserable. While she is working in the summer rush, she is put through the paces. Time and time again she is tested but each time her skin grows thicker and Cooper seems to get more and more invested. I enjoyed Cadee's smart mouth and the way she approached this new reality. Of all the characters though, Cooper seems to have grown up the most. These two characters are not strangers to one another and the past they share is complicated. Along with complications, add secrets and players trying to out-play one another and you have a summer filled with some craziness.

There were aspects of the overall story I had wanted to be explored a little further. The Kings of the Court are ruthless and the pledges were less than kind. And they made this story quite engaging. We are left with room for more books and there were things that seemed unfinished and I am assuming they get sorted out in later books. For not being something I would typically read, as this is a troupe that never really did it for me, I did enjoy this one.

Book Blast ~ Till I Kissed You by Michelle Fernandez


By Michelle Fernandez
✔️Friends to Lovers
✔️The Chase
✔️ Broken
Picture-perfect Phoebe Powell is anything but. Her ex-fiancé’s betrayal four years ago left her broken inside and now love has no place in her hardened heart. Her greatest burden is a secret that haunts her and keeps men at arm’s length. But in spite of that, Phoebe relishes her work—and she’s damn good at her job. As Reporter of the Year her focus is on her career. Phoebe will do anything to get the promotion that’s waiting in the wings, even if it means putting her life at risk.
Dylan Marshall, former Navy SEAL turned special-ops agent, has had his eye on Phoebe Powell for the last year. She’s sexy, confident, and all-around feisty. His kind of woman. But she’s off-limits. They’re just friends. Dylan isn’t afraid to test boundaries, but this is one line he will not cross. That is, until Phoebe’s life is threatened. Now he’ll do anything to keep her safe, even as their connection draws them closer and their attraction becomes more difficult to deny.
Maybe just one kiss…
Can Dylan scale the walls around her heart and chase Phoebe’s demons away, including the imminent threat closing in on her?
Is Phoebe’s deeply kept secret too disturbing to ever move on from, let alone share it with Dylan.

Wild Horse Ranch Book 1
Contemporary Romance
Date Published: August 7, 2020
photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
A slow-burn romance between two outsiders from opposite worlds:

He’s the biggest outcast in town…

Chase Collins has never met a horse he didn’t like. Too bad he can’t say the same for people. In his hometown Lutton, his poor reputation follows him like a dark shadow. It’s best for everyone if he sticks to where he belongs. At least on Wild Horse Ranch, he’s safe from judgment. Then one day a familiar face from 10 years ago shows up out of the blue.

She’s a wanderer who comes and goes…

Samara Grant is a nomad at heart. She doesn’t like staying put for too long. But when her Grandma Bunny passes away, she has to put her carefree lifestyle on hold to handle her affairs. She might have spent childhood summers in Lutton, Texas, but it’s no place to live. She wants to get in and out as fast as possible. Little does she know life has other plans.

Together, they form an unbreakable bond…

When Samara feels like she's losing control of her life, she decides to take it back. She asks Chase to teach her how to ride. Neither expect to find common ground—and a fiery attraction—when Chase agrees. But their blossoming relationship isn’t celebrated by everyone. The closer Chase and Samara get, the more an unforeseen enemy seeks to tear them apart…

Erin's Review ~ The Russian Savage by Rie Warren

The Russian Savage: Enemy of the Bratva (Krasnov Brothers, #2)The Russian Savage: Enemy of the Bratva by Rie Warren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Halfway through The Russian Thug, I knew I had to read every book featuring these characters. I am absolutely loving this gritty and dark world Warren has created. Arkady’s story was so much more than I anticipated! It was interesting to see a softer side of him. He was still the hard, broody, dangerous man we met in the first book but here we get to see that he’s so much more. Lucia’s story was quite emotional and real. Together, these two were able to find something they were missing, something they so desperately needed. I loved it! Passion, pain, action, and danger, this story was gripping! I can’t wait to see what comes next!
