Shy's Review ~ A Little Like Destiny by Lisa Suzanne

A Little Like DestinyA Little Like Destiny by Lisa Suzanne
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

description
This was a well written story and the way it flowed was pretty awesome. Since I'd read the synopsis and knew what the story was about, I experienced this tension that honestly made me enjoy the story more as I waited for what I knew was to come. And oh boy did that moment come full force.

I had so many conflicting emotions about all the main characters of the book. Sometimes I loved them, others I didn't. The secondary characters had me frustrated or loving them at different times as well. But I was fully invested in the story the whole time. I needed to know how it ends. I needed to know how everything would work out.

By the time the story was done, I felt like I had been wound so tight and I didn't get to ease back with the conclusion. I was still left with questions and now need to wait for more answers. It was overall a pretty darn good reading experience. Not heavy on angst but kept you constantly hooked. If this was a glimpse into how this author writes, I'm interested in reading more.

Release Boost ~ Violent Desires by Linnea May




Title: Violent Desires 
Author: Linnea May 
Genre: Dark Romance 











I want real fear. Real submission.
She’s giving me all that,
and taking so much more.


I’m the last son. The one who doesn’t matter. I was never meant to inherit my family’s wealth, but my brother’s gutless betrayal left me as the only one still holding a fortune.

Now, with money to my name and the looks to match, women see me. They want me.

But they don’t know me.

I savor a very specific kind of leisure pursuit. I buy women to lock them up and make them submit to my will.

But this time, I want the real thing. Real fear, real submission. Someone special, who doesn’t play a role.

Someone like her.

A luscious lamb, curves all in the right places, and eyes so deep, I’ve lost myself in them before we even exchanged a single word.

She doesn’t know what’s coming. She doesn’t know that she’s going to be mine, my captive, my submissive, my possession. For as long as I please.

But something is wrong with her. She’s twisted, with a soul just as broken as mine.

She’s not playing by the rules, and that makes me want her that much more.








Linnea May loves to read and write about strong alpha men with loaded bank accounts and skeletons in their closets. Her heroes are as sexy and beautiful as they are broken - only to be fixed by the smart & captivating heroines who cross their paths. 
Originally from Europe, Linnea currently tries to befriend the lively squirrels in Rhode Island. ❤

For All The Right Reasons book 1
Story Blurb
Parental Discretion is Advised. Sydney Willows, a professional photographer boasts a long list of world famous musicians as clients. She's blond, ambitious, and about to shoot the most lucrative job of her career when she meets Ben Gallo, lead singer and guitarist for his band, Reckless. Tall, handsome, and with enough rock swagger to melt any woman's heart, Ben plays to win. Will he be the one to show her that the path to 'happily-ever-after' is possible with a music man, or will a juvenile bet made between brothers prove stronger than a bond of love? For All The Right Reasons is ribboned with deception, lust and love and will leave you aching for an encore.

Beat Of His Own Drums
Story Blurb
For All The Right Reasons introduced Ben and Simon Gallo, the two brothers who together created what would become the legendary rock band Reckless. For every step towards glory which Ben took on their rise to fame, Simon's footsteps faltered along that same journey. Nothing he did seemed to measure up and it was one misstep after another, until Simon no longer knew the man he was looking at in the mirror. Substance abuse covered up his anger and far too many poor decisions to count concealed what he really wanted in his life: acceptance and self-love along with a meaningful and committed relationship with a soul mate.

Beat Of His Own Drums is Simon's story, and gives insight to who Simon really is as a man and why he did the things he did to try and find his happiness. Everyone deserves a second chance at life and even at love, and Simon is ready for his. He's walked the walk and talked the talk, now Simon wants the world to know why he's always had to go through life using the beat from his own drums to guide him.

This 31,000+ word M/M novella has an HEA ending, and is a follow-up story to For All The Right Reasons, M/F, which I would recommend reading first. These stories have now become a series, and a full-length novel will follow Beat Of His Own Drums, which will release in early 2018, continuing Simon and Ben's story.
