Cross (Dark Kings Series Book 3) by Shantel Tessier

CROSS
Have you ever stood next to a fire and felt the heat of it on your skin? Stared into the flames and thought how amazing it would be to be that free? It changes direction with the wind, destroying everything in its wake.

That’s what she felt like.

Alexa was a wildfire that torched everything she touched, and I couldn’t wait to be consumed by her.

She was off-limits. Even though I promised to stay away, I couldn’t resist. She was the spark I had been missing in my life. The fire I craved. I knew from an early age I was destined to burn in hell, but she was born to walk through fire.

ALEXA
I was single-minded, focused, and independent. Just how my mother raised me. I didn’t have time for anything other than myself and work.

Funny how everything can change in an instant when you least expect it.

A King entered my life.

What was supposed to be one night ended up being too many to count. He was afraid that I’d see his darkness, but I couldn’t get enough of him.

After all, a fire burns the brightest in the dark of night. And it only takes one match to cause total devastation.

CROSS is the third book in the Dark Kings Series and can be read as a standalone. Due to mature content and themes this book is recommended for readers aged eighteen and over. This novel may contain triggers.

Dirty Little Secrets (Baldwin’s Shore Romantic Suspense Book 1) by Elise Noble

Welcome to Baldwin’s Shore, the small town where everybody has a secret…

Brooke Bartlett is no exception. She’s been in love with her brother’s best friend for half her life, her dirty little secret. With Luca on the other side of the world, the temptation stayed out of reach, but now he’s back, and he’s not the only one. Brooke’s stalker is watching from the shadows, and he’s got his own ideas about her future…

Luca Mendez’s time in the army taught him two lessons—that to survive, he has to shoot straight and guard his heart. But when the woman he turned down all those years ago asks him for help, he finds he’ll do anything to see her smile again.

Hana’s Review

– 4 stars

– Romantic suspense

– Brother’s best friend

– Unrequited love

 

Elise Noble not only crafts a romance but she crafts a mystery and suspense story that hooks and enthralls you.

Your brother’s best friend…. You’re not supposed to fall for him… but how can you not when he’s an incredibly sexy bad boy with a tragic back story who is also your friend? Brooke Bartlett didn’t stand a chance of not falling for Luca Mendez as a teenager. She opens her heart to him but to protect her, and his friendship with her brother Aaron, Luca denies his own feelings and leaves for the military.

Years go by and the distance between Brooke and Luca seems insurmountable. However, both Luca and Brooke are now back in Baldwin Shores… at the same time and it seems inevitable that their paths will cross. Brooke returns home to her brother after a traumatic experience a year ago – she was drugged and sexually assaulted at a friend’s party. She has no memory of the event but her rapist turns into her stalker and proceeds to taunt and terrify her for the next year.

Luca, who has had feelings for Brooke forever, is between private contractor jobs and staying with his best friend, Aaron, helping with some renovations. Aaron enlists his help for his sister as well and Luca and Brooke are thrown together.

Brooke keeps her terror a secret as to not burden her friends and family but then the stalker becomes even more ardent and she has no choice but to look for help… and she turns to Luca.

His protective instinct is triggered. Her unrequited love is reignited and stoked.

Noble’s story is sexy, emotional with elements of suspense and intrigue. Her writing and prose is easy to read and engaging.

And that ending? You don’t see it coming. You think you might know but you don’t.

If you like romantic suspense, get into this.

A Delicious Dilemma by Sera Taíno

Different worlds collide in Sera Taino’s debut novel.

It’s hard to remain enemies when you’ve broken bread together

Val Navarro’s first mistake: going out dancing after a bad breakup when the chef should be focused on her family business. Her second mistake? Thinking the handsome, sensitive stranger she meets could be more than a rebound – until she discovers he’s Philip Wagner of Wagner Developments. His father’s company could shut down her Puerto Rican restaurant and unravel her tight-knit neighborhood. When Philip takes over negotiations, Val wants to believe he has good intentions. But is following her heart a recipe for disaster?

From Harlequin Special Edition: Believe in love. Overcome obstacles. Find happiness.

Hana’s Review

-️Opposites attract
-Latinx romance
-OWN voices

I’ll admit that I am a complete sucker for any romance that involves a chef, a baker or something similar. If there is food and sparks in a kitchen (but not a kitchen fire), I’m allll the way on board.

Enter Valeria Navarro, a feisty, smart, determined Puerto Rican chef /part-owner of her family restaurant. We meet Val on a night out with friends and family, one of her first nights of enjoyment after a very humiliating, public and pride-breaking break up. Though reluctantly out, it feels like she’s ready to just forget about the ex and try to enjoy living again, outside of her restaurant at least.

There she meets golden boy Philip. There’s an immediate connection – an ease of flirting and conversation that usually isn’t always so easy at all. What we learn, but Val doesn’t, is that Philip is Philip Wagner of Wagner Developments – the group that is gentrifying the East Ward and is a direct threat to Val’s neighborhood, her restaurant, her home and her family.

Taino wrote a beautiful story about the immigrant experience, the strength of family (not just Val’s but Philip’s family experience as well, to some extent) as well as their cultural experiences. She also touches on class and socio-economic differences. It’s a well written story that is complex and leveled and brings you in with it’s vibrancy and emotion.

The book unfolds and we follow this couple through lies and compromise. The story of community and food and the people who love and enjoy it all. And how love and compassion may conquer all the fears and uncertainty of the heart and mind.

I connected so strongly and so well and read this book in a day. Definitely be sure to check it out!!

I received an eARC of this book in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

Sing For Me (The Balefire Series Book 2) by Tam DeRudder Jackson

Blu

My entire life is my music—and all the trappings that come with it. Sex, booze, and rock ‘n’ roll is all I ever wanted. Touring the world as the lead singer of Balefire, I have it all. Until on hiatus, I meet the girl next door.

Ashleigh Baker is nothing like the groupies and celebrities who usually have all my attention. In her cute floppy hat with her knees stained with dirt, she spends her days creating a flowering show piece from her rented yard. She’s the most gorgeous woman I’ve ever met, and she acts like she doesn’t want a damn thing to do with me. But from the moment I laid eyes on her, she’s all I can think about.

Ashleigh

Growing up the only child of an Air Force Colonel, all I wanted was to stay in one place for more than a minute. When I score a pretty little house with a long-term lease, I just want to grow my flowers and my freelancing gig as a music reviewer. Then a loud Harley wakes me from a sound sleep and I discover my neighbor is Blu Connolly. Yeah, that Blu Connolly, lead singer for my favorite band Balefire. With his killer good looks and panty-melting voice, he’s a walking temptation to sin. Though I do my best to avoid him, it seems Blu has other ideas. He’s on a mission to wear me down, let him in, but what happens when he stops wanting to sing for me?

Hana’s Review

-Rockstar romance
-Girl next door

This book is the second book in Tam DeRudder Jackson’s Balefire Series but can be read as a standalone. We get a peek into the characters from the first book and it definitely sparked my interest so we’ll see if I get the chance to get to it!

This book is peak rockstar romance. Bad boy lead singer, Blu, sharing women, leaving women satisfied across the globe, finally meets his match in the literal girl next door, Ashleigh. Well… next door to his mom, actually.

Ashleigh is a music reviewer trying to make ends meet. She rents a cute house and spends most of her time gardening and enjoying the friendship of the older woman next door. The older woman also happens to be the mother of the lead singer of one of the hottest bands around, Balefire. And Blu will be crashing at his mom’s place when he’s off tour. Ashleigh is a fan of the band but never imagined that she’d find herself hanging out with Blu Connolly.

It starts off bumpy, their friendship… they’re more like frenemies. Mostly because Ashleigh makes many assumptions about Blu and his rockstar lifestyle and behavior. What soon blossoms, because of Blu’s persistence, is a strong friendship with mutual attraction. It’s a slow burn because Ashleigh is protecting her heart, not wanting to be another notch on his bedpost. But Blu is determined to make her realize that she’s so much more than that to him.

It was a light, fun read – I was definitely looking for some drama and some angst, to be honest. Though I enjoyed it, I wasn’t as captivated as I had expected. Some things didn’t feel fully realized and I wasn’t sure I believed that Blu would go from multiple women one night to suddenly being completely into Ashleigh the next… I wanted to buy it but I think I needed more internal dialogue to really see how this progressed for Blu.

Wife to the Marines by Krista Wolf

THREE US Marines seeking ONE wife to satisfy our insanely busy lifestyle…

My friends can be real jerks sometimes, especially when they set up a fake dating profile in my name asking for three guys instead of one! But then this incredible response comes through, and I just can’t ignore it. I’m too obsessed with it… along with the trio of gorgeous photos I can’t stop drooling over.

So I try to make a date with one of them. Only they won’t have it. It’s apparently all or nothing when it comes to these military men, and a triple-date sure sounds like a fun way to break the monotony of my boring dating life, doesn’t it?

Only very quickly things become a lot more than just fun.

Troy is the blond-haired, blue-eyed American dream, a decorated machine-gunner with a tragic past. Everett is the dark-haired, broad-shouldered combat engineer, with a heart as big as his enormous arms. Then there’s Forrest; a true, red-bearded warrior. Forged in combat, the bond they share seems closed and unbreakable… yet somehow they’ve opened their arms for me.

I’d never considered dating more than one person, much less getting involved with three! But that’s the deal they’ve offered. No strings, no jealousy, just three ripped, powerful men with a drive and ambition that matches my own. Three brothers-in-arms willing to share me in every possible way, just as they’ve opened their hearts to mine.

Just wait until my friends see what they actually started…

WIFE TO THE MARINES is a military reverse harem love story filled with suspense, humor, and enough sweltering hot action to melt your kindle (author not responsible for molten kindles). HEA guaranteed!

Bombshell (Hell’s Belles #1) by Sarah MacLean

New York Times bestselling author Sarah MacLean returns with a blazingly sexy, unapologetically feminist new series, Hell’s Belles, beginning with a bold, bombshell of a heroine, able to dispose of a scoundrel—or seduce one—in a single night.

After years of living as London’s brightest scandal, Lady Sesily Talbot has embraced the reputation and the freedom that comes with the title. No one looks twice when she lures a gentleman into the dark gardens beyond a Mayfair ballroom…and no one realizes those trysts are not what they seem.

No one, that is, but Caleb Calhoun, who has spent years trying not to notice his best friend’s beautiful, brash, brilliant sister. If you ask him, he’s been a saint about it, considering the way she looks at him…and the way she talks to him…and the way she’d felt in his arms during their one ill-advised kiss.

Except someone has to keep Sesily from tumbling into trouble during her dangerous late-night escapades, and maybe close proximity is exactly what Caleb needs to get this infuriating, outrageous woman out of his system. But now Caleb is the one in trouble, because he’s fast realizing that Sesily isn’t for forgetting…she’s forever. And forever isn’t something he can risk.

Ember (The Dragao Book 1) by Jenika Snow

This was the only home I’d ever known, the only one humans had.

Alev was a world of heat, inhospitable terrain, dangerous lands, and the fearsome Dragao… dragon-shifting males.

I’d never seen one in person. Until now.

And he said I was his fated female and born to be his and his alone.

Azar was monstrous in size, had horns that curled back from his temples, claws tipping his massive hands, and sharp fangs that he said he’d use to give me his mating mark.

And apparently I was the only female to wake his inner beast.

Azar may treat me as if I was his greatest treasure, but he also refused to let me go. He kept me in his mountain cavern, giving me gentle touches and pleasures I didn’t even pretend to hate.

Fear should have been the only thing I felt when I looked at him, but when he stared at me as if I would give him the world—and heirs—it was hard not to fall for my big dragon-shifting mate.

* Savior of Regrets is a 80,000 word story set in the Verona Legacy world. Due to mature content that some readers may find distressing, this book is recommended for readers 18+

Excerpt Savior of Regrets by L A Cotton

“M-Matteo?” Her eyes flickered open. “What time is it?”
“Late. Everyone already went to bed.”
“They did?”
I nodded, offering her my hand. “Let’s get you into bed.”
Without argument, Caitlin took my hand and I led her down the hall to her room.
“Where will you sleep?” she asked around a yawn.
I pulled back the covers and flicked my head for her to get in the bed. Pulling off her hoodie, Caitlin slipped into the sheets and nestled down.
“I’ll see you tomorrow,” I said.
“Stay.”
The word echoed through my skull. My eyes found hers in the dark, and she smiled. “Matteo, will you please stay with me?”
Without a word, I yanked off my sweater and shucked out of my jeans, climbing in beside her. Caitlin burrowed into my side and laid her hand on my breastbone. “Thank you,” she whispered. “For everything.”
I pressed a kiss to her hair, hardly able to wipe the smile off my face. “You’re worth it, Tink. I hope you know that.”
A beat passed, and another, and Cait still didn’t answer.
“Cait?” I gently shook her. Nothing.
She was out for the count, curled into my side like she belonged there.
It was disarming, the deep sense of peace I felt having her close. We didn’t know each other, not really, not beyond the surface. Yet, I felt tethered to her in a way I couldn’t explain.
I wanted to hold her like this every night and wake every morning to her green eyes and blinding smile.
I wanted her—plain and simple.
But as I closed my eyes, and allowed myself to fall into oblivion, I couldn’t help but feel like I was one breath away from losing her.

Never Be the Same by MA Binfield

They say opposites attract. They aren’t kidding.

When Casey meets Olivia—the actress she’s driving around for two weeks—she figures it’s going to be all business. Sure, Olivia’s hot and has women throwing themselves at her feet, but Casey is only interested in making the money she needs before going back to Portland. London is full of painful memories, and anyway, perfectly put together celebrities are not really her thing.

Olivia loves being “Susie,” her TV alter ego. She’s sassy, sexy, and never short of admirers, but living her life in the public eye is taking its toll. When her new driver turns out to be tall, dark, and undeniably handsome, Olivia is intrigued. But Casey seems like she has something to hide, and the last thing Olivia needs is someone she can’t trust.

Hana’s Review

4 stars

Celebrity romance

Queer/Lesbian romance

Opposites attract

 

I was really excited going into this read of “Never Be the Same” by MA Binfield and I was not disappointed. A lesbian celebrity romance? Count me in!

I’m always excited to see representation of LGBTQIA+ characters in romance and I think the author did a great job of creating complex and complete characters without making it just about being a lesbian or gay – it was about the full human experience – flawed, uncertain, and sometimes insecure. But also filled with friends, family, healing, laughter and happiness. Don’t get me wrong, I love all kinds of stories but I did really enjoy the storyline and the varied characters that Binfield created and that kept me invested and hooked.

Our main heroines, Olivia and Casey, come from very different walks of life but are both recovering from betrayal and hurt from previous relationships. Trust does not come easy and though I understood that, I would still get a little miffed at the assumptions and lack of communication between the two of them. They came together with lots of baggage and had a lot to work through – within themselves and together – and I often found myself growling “Would you just say what you mean!? All this turmoil could be avoided and we could get to kissing!!!” Clearly, I was invested!

Olivia comes from the glitz and glam of stardom, the feature character of a hit TV show. We find, though, that all the extra hubbub that comes with fame is really taking its toll on her. She loves the acting but not all the extra crazy that comes along with it.

Casey returns home to London to help her mom out and takes a job driving Olivia and the rest of the cast around for two weeks. Casey uses the job to avoid reliving the heartache and drama that made her escape London for the US just a year or so before. But what she finds is Olivia, a stunningly gorgeous actress who does not fit the stereotypical mold of a spoiled diva.

Over the next two weeks, the initial spark of attraction develops further and though they both know they’re leaving, will be separated, they cannot deny the feelings they have for each other. Two weeks is an incredibly short amount of time (uhaul joke anyone?!) but also, given their level of attraction and spark, I understood that for this to have a chance, it needed to move fast. I bought it.

I will say that sometimes the story dragged a little… the pace could have been a little faster or the story a wee bit shorter. However, I still really enjoyed this book. I loved the backdrop of London, I enjoyed the secondary characters and I was happy to see how Olivia and Casey eventually found their way.

I received an ARC from Bold Strokes Books through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

I told myself that I was okay. I almost believed it, until the day I was forced to face my past and my nightmare came to life.

Now the Four are the only ones I can turn to, and Cassius Drummond has made it his personal mission to help me out.

No matter how much I tell myself that he’s off-limits, the more time we spend together, the more I want him.

Bound by my past, I know I’m no good for him, and I’m nothing more than a convenient distraction while we’re stuck with each other.

It’s going to end in heartbreak.

But every time he smiles at me, I find myself falling a little bit more.

The Bonds We Break is a standalone mature new adult romance, but is best enjoyed after the previous four books in the series.
