I Will Revel in Glory (Death By Daybreak Motorcycle Club Book 3) by C.M. Stunich

What sort of girl falls in love with four outlaws?
What sort of girl plays with fire for the fun of it?

I’m the salvation for the dirty throne of the city’s underworld, the only person who can secure a future for the Death by Daybreak Motorcycle Club. There are few people in this world that I can trust—a mafia brat, a soon-to-be nun, and four lascivious demons—but that’ll have to be enough, or we’ll all burn together in glorious flame. Only, there’s no telling what my father will do now that he knows the truth.

They will always be wrong for me.
But sometimes, the darkness simply chooses you.
These guys … they’ve chosen someone.
They’ve chosen me

Canary by Tijan

We were on the front lines in that world, the mafia world.

There was nothing soft or glamorous about it.

Who you were before no longer mattered. Names didn’t exist.

I joined anyway. I had no other choice because they took my sister.

Join. Find her. Try and make it out alive.

Then he won me in a poker game.

I hated him instantly, thinking he was like my other bosses before him.

He wasn’t. He was worse.

He wasn’t just cold. He was dead inside.

It didn’t matter that he was gorgeous.

He was the most lethal thing I’d ever met.

He was also the only person who could keep me alive, if he didn’t kill me himself.

A/N This is a 102k mafia/cartel standalone.

This is the most violent book Tijan has ever written.

Trigger warning: references to sexual violence

Matteo (Medallion Cartel) by Erin Trejo

I was in charge of her. She worked for me.
Then things changed. She was different and I wanted more.
Syx wasn’t like the other women I dated. She was special in her own right.
And now I’m about to take her and make her mine.
She would be mine to protect until I learn who it is that’s after her.
Now I’m asking for a war.

Queen of Anarchy (Dirty Broken Savages Book 2) by Eva Ashwood

Queen of Anarchy is the heart-pounding second installment in the Dirty Broken Savages series.

Note: The blurb below contains spoilers for the first book, so I’d highly recommend not reading it until you’ve finished reading book one, Kings of Chaos. You’ve been warned!

***

I was a good girl once. But bad b*tches get shit done.

My list is finished. Every name has been crossed off. I should be sipping cocktails on a beach somewhere, breathing easy for the first time in years.

But I’m not.

Because that asshole Ivan St. James refused to stay at the bottom of the river where Knox put him.

Because someone dragged his body up from the depths and laid it out as a very public, very gruesome warning.

Because I swear it was Hannah’s eyes I saw behind that mask.

Nothing makes sense anymore, and if I thought I might find some peace in knowing that the men who hurt us are dead, I was wrong.

The game isn’t over yet. The original deal I struck with the Kings of Chaos is null and void, and despite my plan to walk away from them when this was all done, there’s no way I can do that now.

Our fates are entwined, at least until we sort out this mess.

Honestly, I don’t know how to feel about that. Because as much as I refuse to let my walls down for anyone, I’m starting to think these four brutal, dangerous men…

Might be the only ones I can trust.

Queen of Anarchy is a full length mafia/gang new adult romance featuring a slightly psycho heroine and four even more psychotic men. This book contains dark themes, so please read at your own discretion. It is book 2 of 4.

Except he doesn’t know I’m ready to fight, too.

I’ll do anything to have my revenge against the man who took everything from me.

Ruthless Queen (Crooked Paradise Book 3) by Eva Chance

Heavy lies the crown…

I thought getting my revenge would give me some kind of peace. Instead it seems to have brought an even worse villain to my doorstep.

Or rather, to the Nobles’ doorstep, which the big boss of Paradise Bend’s most powerful gang is not at all happy about. I may have won over Wylder Noble and his men, but his father is another story entirely.

A brutally murderous story.

Stuck between a vicious gang king and a psychotic stalker set on total domination, I’m not sure yet whether I’m going to win this war or go down fighting. If I fall, will these men who’ve set my body on fire—and somehow worked their way into my heart—fall with me?

Not if Mercy Katz has anything to say about it.

I’m the heir to my father’s throne, and I’m going to wear the hell out of that crown as long as I’m still breathing.

*Perilous Lady is the second book in a new gritty contemporary romance series from bestselling author Eva Chase (writing as Eva Chance) and Harlow King. No major triggers, but be prepared for domineering men who make their own rules, a rebellious heroine who’s not afraid to get her hands dirty, and an enemies-to-lovers romance where the girl gets all the guys. It’s going to be a wild, bloody ride!*

Crooked Crows (Boys of Briar Hall Book 1) by Elena Lawson

Unapologetically f*cked up. Heartlessly cruel. Broken beyond repair.

Corvus, Rook, and Grey – The Crows.

Bred in a world of gang wars, violence, and secrets, they rule the bloody town of Thorn Valley and all the people in it…too bad for me I’ve never been good at kissing ass or keeping quiet.

Even if their savage spirits awaken something inside of me I thought was long dead, I can’t break. I won’t.

They think they scare me, that I’ll run and hide, but the joke’s on them. The Crows aren’t the first monsters I’ve faced, and they won’t be the last. There are worse evils out there waiting to take their stab at Ava Jade Mason.

I say let them try. I’m tired of running. Tired of holding back my darkness. Thorn Valley isn’t ready for a new boogie man. Too bad I’m already here.

Crooked Crows is a dark enemies-to-lovers reverse harem romance, meaning the main character will have more than one love interest.

Warning: This series contains foul language, explicit sexual content, graphic depictions of gang violence, and jealous/possessive themes. Recommended for readers aged eighteen and up. Please read responsibly.

Excerpt Crooked Crows by Elena Lawson

#1

“You’re a monster,” she spat, her harsh tone and curled upper lip disguising the truth her body couldn’t hide from me. She was fighting the same indecision I was. Unsure if she wanted to fuck me or bite my head off.
She shivered as I leaned in, putting my mouth at her ear.
“You’re damn right I am.”
A bitter grin pulled at my lips. Fuck. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d smiled.
“You should run, little sparrow. While you still can,” I warned, unsure I’d even give her the chance to if she tried.
“And if I don’t?”
“Then I’ll swallow you whole.”

#2

I didn’t even have time to catch my breath before he claimed my mouth, stealing whatever dregs of air remained in my lungs. His fingers twisted into my hair, securing me to him as he shoved me against the cool stainless steel. It bit into my lower back, and I clutched it until my fingers strained from the pressure, trying desperately to ward off the flutter taking over deep in my belly.
I don’t want this.
Lie.
I don’t want him.
Lie.
“Stop fucking fighting it,” he demanded between kisses, pressing in between my hips, making me moan into his mouth.
I released the countertop, letting him lift me with ease until I was seated atop it, able to wrap my legs around his middle. To yank his shirt off.
“This means nothing,” I panted as it fell to the floor, my voice a breathy growl.
“Absolutely nothing,” he agreed with a smirk.

Queen Crow (Queen Crow #3) by J. Bree
Blurb:
It was never supposed to be like this.
My darkest secret has just been sent to the one person I was desperate to hide it from and now it’s too late to take it back. The damage has been done.
With Atticus’ life in the balance and three new members about to be sworn in to the Twelve, the stakes have never been higher. Having my family back should be the greatest blessing but instead, it’s just made things more complicated.
We’re building a new empire in the Bay, one that is stronger than any that came before it.
Loyalties are being tested and reputations forged on the streets of the country’s most notorious city.
But one thing is for sure.
We might not all make it through, but so begins my reign.

Lyrical (Academy of Stardom #2) by Bea Paige

From the gutter to the stars…

Dance is in my blood.
Once upon a time it ran through their veins too. Xeno, York, Zayn, and Dax.
The Breakers and I were a crew until bad decisions and circumstance ripped us apart.
Now the Breakers are back.
And they’ve brought trouble.
They’re not here at the Stardom Academy to dance.
They’re here on a mission for Jeb, the leader of the Skins.
He wants something, and me…? I’m just a pawn in their game.
To make matters worse, my psychotic brother wants something too.
I must befriend the Breakers and find out what they’re up to.
If I refuse, my brother will hurt the one person I love more than life itself.
I cannot allow that to happen.
Dance was always the cure to our pain, the foundations of our friendship and love.
It brought us together once before.
Can I go through the cycle of friendship, love, and heartache all over again?
Will I survive the Breakers a second time? Will they survive me?

**Lyrical is book two of this new gritty, contemporary reverse harem academy trilogy for 17+ readers and deals with adult themes and some subjects you may find upsetting. If you love dance, your men on the criminal side, alpha hot holes, and the friends-to-enemies-to-lovers trope, this is for you. Contains foul language and sexual scenes and ends on a cliff hanger.**

I got hooked on this Rh from the start. The first book makes more an introduction to their world and how they met and fell apart, but now things start to shift on the board. The guys crack one by one, and it’s not an easy task for Xeno. He is the one who keeps the boys together and the one who refuses to give in to Pen.

At the end of book 2 we know why the guys are into the academy. What is their purpose and finally Pen tells them the truth.

Now that the gang is back together, they have a gang war to fight, enemies to defeat and family to protect.

Freestyle (Academy of Stardom Book 1) by Bea Paige

From the gutter to the stars…

Dance is in my blood.
It’s what keeps me sane, out of trouble. It used to keep them out of trouble too.
A group of boys I grew up with.
Xeno, York, Zayn and Dax.
We were a crew once and we ruled the clubs.
Separate we were insanely good, together we were unbeatable. F*&ing on fire.
I was their girl and they were my Breakers.
Until they did something they promised they never would; break my heart.
We were seventeen when they left me.
You see, for kids like us, dance was all we had.
Growing up in a rundown housing estate in London with no prospects can make you view the world differently.
It can make you choose the wrong path.
I chose dance, and they chose crime.
Three years later I’ve won a scholarship to Stardom Academy. I try to forget my past.
But how can I do that when the four boys who hurt me are back?
And this time they’re following in my footsteps and joining the academy too.

**Freestyle is book one of this new gritty, contemporary reverse harem academy romance for 17+ readers and deals with adult themes and some subjects you may find upsetting. If you love dance, your men on the criminal side, alpha hot holes and the friends-to-enemies-to-lovers trope, this is for you. Contains foul language and sexual scenes and ends on a cliffhanger.**

I have been dying to read this series because I’ve heard so many good things about it.

I remember being a teen and watching all those movies about teenagers dancing and attending academy schools of dance and expressing themselves through it. This series is exactly that plus reverse harem and some dark-ish content.

Pen comes from a broken family and befriends the Breakers. Their world comes from a bad place where the threat of gangs looms above them, biding their time to drag the boys into the cruel world of it.

The first book introduces us into the story of how their friendship became more and how it also broke them all apart. 3 years ago something happened and not the boys (Xeno, Dax, Zayn and York) have come back to get what belongs to them.

You don’t get many answers from Freestyle, but it gets you hooked. Pen is broken but strong and she’ll face all that the guys make her go through.

Timber (Hades Book 4) by Tate James
Timber is the FOURTH in a new Shadow Grove series. Several characters cross over to the Madison Kate series but it is not necessary to read MK’s story first. HADES is a contemporary new adult reverse harem series, which means the leading lady has several love interests and never has to choose in order to find her HEA.
The blurb below contains spoilers for previous books. Don’t read it if you don’t want to ruin the story for yourself.
Betrayed.

My best friend, my right hand, the man I trusted above all others. Zayden de Rosa declared his love for me and pursued me until he shattered the walls between us. Then the man who loved me proved to be a traitor. I never saw that coming.

Abandoned.

My fierce lover, he died to protect me. Let me kill him and erase him so he could move in the shadows. He’s out there alone and he has no idea what’s happened. All he’ll know is that I’m not where I’m supposed to be. Something that might cost him his life for real. I have to trust him to survive on his own. He never saw that coming.

Framed.

My lighthouse. My lover. My Lucas. I love him so damn much and while I might be guilty of some crimes, the worst seems to be hurting him. The majority of what they arrested me for was a damn lie, but not that one. Hopefully the light he promised me will sustain through this time. We never saw that coming.

Enraged.

My ex is at the heart of this all. One assault after another. He didn’t break me before and he won’t break me now.

I’m Hades.

He’ll never see me coming.
Timber is book FOUR of FOUR in the Hades series. This book contains scenes and content that may become triggering for some people and it is advised to proceed with caution. If you’ve got this far in the series, you’re already well acquainted with the nature of the Hades plotline and can make your own educated guesses.

Dead Man’s Isle (The Harlequin Crew Book 2) by Caroline Peckham & Susanne Valenti

I’m the girl who no one wanted. Or the one who got away. Depending on who you ask.

Either way, betrayal and heartache have been my friends for far too long and it’s time for me to start over.

I gave the Harlequin boys a chance to change. A chance to prove that history wasn’t just set to repeat itself. But they failed with spectacular colours.

Maybe it’s time for me to stop running. After all, Sunset Cove has been living under the Harlequins’ thumb for far too long. It’s time to set our demons free and let them burn this place to the ground. Who knows if I’ll survive the fallout?
But I guess I’ll soon find out if dead girls can die twice.

This is an enemies to lovers contemporary series where the girl will end up with multiple love interests and all of the characters are in their late twenties. Trigger warning: this series features gangs, violence, dark romance and jealous/possessive themes.

Perilous Lady (Crooked Paradise Book 2) by Eva Chance

Keep your enemies closer…

I’ve proven I can stand with the fiercest gang in Paradise Bend. Now it’s time to crush my traitor ex-fiancé and his stooges into smithereens.

They’ve already butchered my family. I can’t let them destroy the streets I called home.

Wylder Noble and his inner circle are ready to rain down their own brand of justice. Too bad they can’t seem to decide whether they’d rather kiss me or kill me.

To be fair, I’m having the same problem when it comes to these four infuriatingly hot and dangerous men.

Whichever we pick, we’d better decide fast. Because my ex isn’t pulling any punches… and the greatest threat may come from right within the Nobles’ ranks.

*Perilous Lady is the second book in a new gritty contemporary romance series from bestselling author Eva Chase (writing as Eva Chance) and Harlow King. No major triggers, but be prepared for domineering men who make their own rules, a rebellious heroine who’s not afraid to get her hands dirty, and an enemies-to-lovers romance where the girl gets all the guys.

Scorned Princess (Crooked Paradise Book 1) by Eva Chance

Hell hath no fury…

I thought I was trading one evil for a lesser one. Marry a man I might eventually love, forge an alliance between his gang and my father’s, and get out from under Dad’s sadistic thumb.

Turns out my fiancé has other plans. Like slaughtering me and my entire family the night before the wedding.

I make it out alive, left with nothing but a thirst for vengeance. But if I want to crush the prick who betrayed me, I have to turn to the biggest pricks of them all.

Hot, cocky, and dangerous, Wylder Noble and his men rule Paradise Bend. Their help doesn’t come cheap. I’ve got to prove I’m strong enough to deserve it.

Whatever they throw at me, I can take it. No taunting words or scorching looks will break the wall around my heart.

They think I’m made of glass? I’m a girl of shards that can cut you to the bone.

Before this is over, someone’s going to bleed. And this time, it won’t be me.

*Scorned Princess is the first in a new gritty contemporary romance series from bestselling author Eva Chase (writing as Eva Chance) and Harlow King.

The Ruthless (Queen Crow #2) by J Bree

Everything has changed.
The time away from my family was supposed to be about finding myself, finding out who I am now that I am free, but nothing in our world is easy and some lessons are the hardest to learn.
I can’t trust anyone.
With two open spots on the Twelve that have to be filled, loyalties won’t just be tested, they’ll be pushed to the limits. No one is safe once they step into the Game.
All of my dreams of leaving high school and my family being free seem like a distant memory now, the shadows of our pasts still hanging over our every move. Sticking together has never been so hard.
But one thing is for sure.
Nothing will ever be the same again.
Publication date : March 17, 2021

HA!… I thought I was smart to read book 1 after book 2 came out but I can’t avoid the cliffhanger for this one. And it’s brutal.

But the series is so worth it. I know it’s long to wait until July. I was left in a bad mood when I finished it but in serious awe with J. Bree. She is brilliant and the complexity of the story and how in depth her character development marks … it hits every emotion you may have.

I feel like I am sucked into the story, a little lost and wanting to keep up with their word because this is a new one. Hannaford had the Jackal to worry, but now… a lot of players on the board.

Anyway, fantastic series… fantastic characters, loved the fact that Avery picks both the Crow and the Stag. What I most enjoy is that they are enemies, and Atticus is not willing to share the object of his madness. A lot of secrets come out, more secrets left in the dust… and the cliffhanger leaves you begging for at least one more page to know more.

All Hail (Queen Crow #1) by J. Bree

The death of my serial killer father was supposed to free me.
After the horrors of high school my family has reluctantly left me behind to heal from my trauma on my own terms but since my kidnapping I no longer know the girl who stares back at me in the mirror.
The love of my life is avoiding me, desperate to keep me safe, and the man who should hate me won’t stop coming to my rescue. I’ve always known what I wanted but now I’m not so sure.
But the criminal underworld of Mounts Bay never sleeps and with new players on the board there’s all new threats and the stakes have never been higher.
But one thing is for sure.
I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.
Publication Date : November 10, 2020

I am glad I waited for at least book 2 to come out, because I successfully dogged a major cliffy.

I have done my re read of Hannford Prep, read Book 5 from the guy’s POV and then started Avery’s book.

As we know Avery is the Queen. The Ice Queen. She is fierce, loves her family and would do anything to keep them safe. The action takes place just as the guys go on tour with Blaise and now Avery needs to deal with her new role, alone and with the trauma she had under the Jackal’s kidnapping.

We finally know more, and man.. the story is so complex it actually blows my mind and I feel like I’m a detective following all these threads to keep up.

With Hannaford it was “simple”… deal with the Jackal.. but now… it’s a brand new world and new key players. 2 of which Avery wants to keep.

Make My Move (Hannaford Prep) by J Bree

The Mounty trash has wormed her way into our circle.

We have no choice but to wait until she shows her hand, each move on the board more risky than the last. There’s no way she’s not a spy, not with her allegiance with the sociopath drug addict who walks the halls with murder on his mind.

We’re watching her every move, every choice she makes reshaping the world we live in.

The halls of Hannaford Prep have never been so deadly. The game is only just beginning and now I need to make my move.
Publication date : April 14, 2021

I was waiting for this book. I love Hannaford Prep Series and this is the book of the guys’ POV.

To clear a bit if you’re confused, this book is ONLY from the guys with multiple POV and retells book 2 from the series.

There are small things each of them did that we finally know more, or their struggle to accept Lips into their family.

I was most excited to read about Ash because he was the one that caved last, but Harley is still my favorite.

Just as an idea if you reread or start the series for the first time, read book 2 and this one in tandem. It’s so much fun.
