Honey Trap (The Guild Book 1) by Tate James

THE GUILD is a new series born from the Shadow Grove world. While some characters have been met in the existing MADISON KATE and HADES series, their cameos were not crucial to THE GUILD storyline.

honeytrap

noun

a stratagem in which an attractive person entices another person into revealing information or doing something unwise.

Those who have reached a certain level within the mercenary guild, know that it’s not merely a job. It isn’t a hobby or a career or a fun pastime. It’s a calling. A fucking honor.

Being in the Guild is our life…. Or death.

Not everyone is created equal, and not everyone is truly cut out for the work we do. It’s not pretty, it’s not glamorous, and it’s sure as shit not moral or good. The weight of the sins we carry can become too much for some, and they crack.

When they do, they become a threat.

No one quits the Guild. Not really. Either they cut a deal to make themselves useful in another capacity, or they get eliminated.

But who, you might ask, can kill a killer?

Who scares the boogeyman into running and hiding?

Men like me.

The Guild is my life. My love. My very existence.

Anyone who poses a threat to that, is eliminated. No questions, no hesitations, no mercy.

Until her.

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.

Anarchy (Hades Book 2) by Tate James

Anarchy is the SECOND 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.

Five years ago, I made a choice that I haven’t regretted a day since. I protected the single most important person in my world, my little sister. I protected myself, and I seized control of the Tri-state Timberwolves.

Since then, I’ve wielded that power with an iron fist. Done whatever it took to take care of my people. Kept us out of the public eye, and kept us safe.

Now a ghost from my past is threatening my position. Challenging me. Peddling their poison and breaking my rules. Stabbing at me in the dark.

Blowing up my fucking club.

But this last attack has taken it one step too far. They have no idea the lengths I’ll go to protect what is mine. And Lucas? He’s mine.

They want anarchy? They haven’t seen anything yet.

Anarchy is book TWO of FOUR in the Hades series.

Wellllllll…. Tate James is the QUEEN of cliffhangers. I mean she is brutal… How does she do it? She makes you fall in love with her characters and then BAM… wait 1 or 2 months to see what happens. Club 22 comes out June 11th.

Regardless of the cliffhanger, which let’s be honest, you know it by now with her books…. I was heart and soul for this baby. I want to know more, I need to know more.. and my heart broke at the end of the book.

Hayden has a lot of trouble to deal with and now she faces a betrayal on her hands. I know this has a big twist to it so I am confident in resolving the issue, but DAMN… how can I say this without being too spoilery? … Cass is in trouble.. big time. And I want to barge into the story and shake him for that crap he pulled.

Read the damn book. Read it and come here to vent. You’ll need it. Trust me.

Club 22 (Hades Book 3) by Tate James

Club 22 is the THIRD 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.

They say to keep your enemies close and mine are all around me. At the heart of it are four dangerously gorgeous men. The man who wants to light my darkness and already paid the price for loving me. The man who can handle my power and loves every dark inch of me. The man who has been my closest companion and now threatens to upend our carefully balanced world in pursuit of me.

But the fourth man is probably the most terrifying. He wants to take the others away. He wants to tear the spinal column out my empire. Destroy my businesses. Destroy me.

Why?

Because the man who should have stayed dead wants me and he will stop at nothing until he’s carved out my bloody, beating heart and left me broken.

He should remember who he’s dealing with…I’m not the girl he knew anymore.

I’m Hades.

This time when death comes for him, I’ll make sure it sticks.

Club 22 is book THREE of FOUR in the Hades series.

7th Circle (Hades Book 1) by Tate James

7th Circle is the first of a new series set in Shadow Grove. 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.

Five years ago, I masterminded the infamous massacre of the Tri-state Timberwolves.

The streets outside the Wolves HQ ran red with the blood of the old guard, and not one of those members loyal to my father were spared mercy. Not a single one.

I let the media twist and distort the story. My new recruits eagerly proved themselves in spreading false news, in covering our tracks. To the general public, the Tri-State Timberwolves were extinct.

But that couldn’t have been further from the truth. We changed, we grew, we evolved and came out stronger than ever. Now, I live, eat, sleep and breathe Timberwolves. I’ll do anything to keep my empire safe and thriving. To keep the people depending on me safe.

So, what do I do, when it’s my own weakness that places us all in danger? When I let sex cloud my judgment, and my people pay the price?

Simple. Kill the distractions.

I’m called Hades for a reason, after all.

7th Circle is book ONE of FOUR. This release date will change closer to completion.

  • Publication date : January 8, 2021.

Oh man, I wanted to know who Hades is… soooo badly that as soon as the book went live, I started it.

To be honest, I love Hades more than MK is that’s possible. I also enjoy the fact that her harem has no connection to each other. Even though they know who they are, they recognize the want for her. If’s fun to know the dynamics.

Suffice to say I’ve spent the night reading it and finishing it. I was hooked. My struggles with Tate James books are the love scenes. They are too many (I can’t believe i’m saying this) but they pause the story too much sometimes and I want to know more about the plot. This is why I enjoy the hell of them in the beginning, because I love knowing the new world created, getting to know the characters and try guessing who the bad guy is.

We’ve gotten to know Cass a bit in the Madison Kate series an saw a different side of him. He is still struggling now. Zed is slowing showing his want for Hades. He is the best friend and second, the person Hades trust the most. The fact that he’s a man wh*re is well known. I really think they see each other wanting her, but they did not take into account Hades wanting the new kid, Lucas.

The first book has Hades and Lucas’s relationship development, which I find clever, because that is the catalyst that makes the other 2 act on their feelings.

Anyway, I am looking forward to book 2. I want to know more. I need to know more.

LIAR (Madison Kate Story Book 2) by Tate James

“Liar, liar, pants on fire.”

The words scrawled on the back of my newest stalker mail makes my blood run cold. I have no idea if it’s the lie I know, or one that I don’t.

Since arriving back into Shadow Grove, I’ve been stalked, tormented, chased and almost killed. I’ve been lied to, repeatedly, by people I was growing to trust.

Liar.

That word haunts me. Someone knows more about my life than I do. Someone is taunting me with answers and teasing me with secrets. Am I desperate enough to fall for more deception?

Archer and his boys made a huge mistake when they lied to me. They thought they could play me but they’re about to learn that they’ve met their match. No one stabs Madison Kate and gets away with it.
Publication Date: July 3, 2020

To be totally honest, I peaked at spoilers a bit, so that is why I knew not to read the books until the full series was out. And I knew that Archer was sitting on a BIG SEECRET meant to destroy Kate and her new found connection to the boys.

Book 1 and 2 had me sitting on edge the whole time. Hot damn, I was so nervous reading these that I spent 2 nights in a row not sleeping. Who needs to be awake at work when Kate was lurking in my mind.

So Liar reveals Archer’s and the boys gigantic secret. It’s enough to make Kate run for her life and face her stalker alone. But before that, the brutal cliffhanger from book 1 has you thinking that was it? Hell no! Tate James has her mind set on making you go crazy. And I love it.

HATE (Madison Kate Book 1) by Tate James

“Madison Kate Danvers was murdered tonight.”

Those words changed my life, and not for the better.

They were wrong, of course. I wasn’t dead. But I was set up.

After being charged with a string of offences–and made an example of by my political minded father–I’m eventually released back into Shadow Grove with one thing on my mind.

Hate.

Someone is going to pay for derailing my carefully laid out future. Someone is going to catch the full force of my hate. How very convenient that someone just moved into the bedroom down the hall from me.

Archer D’Ath and his boys messed with the wrong chick and they’re about to learn just how cold Madison Kate’s hate can run.

**Please Note: The release date will change as the book comes closer to completion**

This book was sitting in my kindle far too long. I know Tate James is very well known for her brutal cliffhangers and I decided to wait until all books of the series were released. I WAS RIGHT!!!

So, the first book is more of an introduction of Madison Kate and her life. How she met the guys, how she was framed for a crime she didn’t commit, or how she nearly died. After 1 year in exile, she comes back and her life is suddenly upside down. She finds herself 3 roommates, one of them being her step-brother.

Little does she know life will become more complicated and filled with secrets. Archer, Kody and Steele know more than they let on and I assure you, you’d want to meet them and know them.

Anyway, my review is short because I already started book 2 and finished, so I need to read them ALL!!!

KATE (Madison Kate Story Book 4) by Tate James

Madison Kate is a new adult/college age dark romance with enemies to lovers/hate to love themes. This is a reverse harem series, meaning the leading lady has several love interests and she doesn’t have to choose between them for her happily ever after. If this isn’t your cup of tea, then this isn’t the series for you.

KATE is book 4 of 4 in the MADISON KATE series. The blurb below may contain spoilers for previous books, and I urge you not to read it until you’ve finished HATE, LIAR and FAKE.

“I never miss.”

Riot Night changed my life.

Coming back to Shadow Grove turned it on its head.

I’ve been hunted, stabbed, stalked, tormented, and used. Hate fueled me, lies tore me apart, and in the end everything I thought I knew turned out to be fake.

Except… Riot Night also brought Archer, Kody, and Steele back into my life. No matter how much I’ve fought it, hated it, been lied to or discovered the deceptions—I want them in my life.

No one owns me.

No one is taking them away.

This is my life, dammit, and these guys are mine to keep.

If a war is what it takes, then a war is what they’ll get.

Dylan (Dark Legacy Book 4) by Jaymin Eve & Tate James

Dylan Grant.
One of Forbes’ 30 under 30.
One of the most eligible yet unattainable men in the country.
One of the Delta Five.

Together with his friends, Beck, Riley, Jasper and Evan, Dylan runs half the damn world. He is the epitome of power… and the definition of emotional baggage. Too damaged from his shitty upbringing. Too hung up on his best friend’s girl. Too cold and guarded to let anyone else into his stratosphere.

So why can’t I stay away?

Why can’t I end things? He doesn’t even know my real name or my real age. If he finds out…

He can’t find out. I’ll end it. One more night, and I’ll end it. Men like Dylan Grant never commit to women like me. I’m too weak, too broken, too tragic.

Just one more night, and I’ll walk away. Dylan Grant will never see me again.

Or… that was the plan.

This is a reverse harem series, meaning the leading lady has several love interests and she doesn’t have to choose between them for her happily ever after.

“You’ll always be mine.”

The latest taunt from my stalker reminded me I was nothing more than a possession to my father, to the Reapers, to Archer D’Ath. Even to Kody and Steele. Princess Danvers—the prize.

His wife.

Archer D’Ath’s wife.

I hated them. They lied to me. Over and over again. I knew they lied and I hated myself for letting it happen. For believing in the fake relationships I had wanted so desperately to be real.

Fake.

It was all fucking fake. My stalker isn’t letting me go. None of them are. Archer and his boys think they control me. My stalker wants to possess me. I’m not an idiot, I know my newest allies are using me, too.

That’s fine.

I’ll use all of them. I’ll use them to take back what’s mine.

My life. My freedom. My name.

No one owns Madison Kate Danvers.

Broken Wings (Dark Legacy #1) by Tate James & Jaymin Eve

They rule my new town, my school, and with more money than God, there’s very little out of their reach.

Four gorgeous, perfect, scary boys. There used to be five, but one of them died, leaving a fifth position that I now fill.

I didn’t ask for this. I didn’t want to be part of this billionaire-boys-club. But no one cares about what I want.

Sebastian Beckett is the worst of them. Their leader. He draws me in, and strips me of every defense I have. He calls me Butterfly, but it’s not a pet name, it’s a threat. Beck wants nothing more than to break my wings, pin me to a board and watch me writhe.

He wants to see me broken. Body, heart and soul.

And what these elite want, they get.

Only they’ve never met Riley Jameson.

Let the battle begin.

*This dark contemporary romance features one girl and four sexy, dangerous boys but is NOT a reverse harem.*

Title: Broken Wings (Dark Legacy #1)
Author: Tate James & Jaymin Eve
Publication Date: March 18th, 2019
Shelves: Contemporary; Romance;
Format: Kindle (325 pages)
Rating: 7/10

I really have mixed feelings about this one. I think the authors wanted to make Riley the center of it all, that they make her judge everyone else for the things she is actually doing.

I feel like this is a typically bully, enemies to lovers romance that resembles the same as other trope related books, only this one isn’t reverse harem.

But, I do enjoy them and managed to read the book avoiding some things that bugged me. Things like their uniform, or cattish slut shaming vibes. Not to mention, boys with ages 17-20 with all these skills? I guess it would have made more sense if this was a paranormal series. Now, THAT would have been more intriguing.

I guess this is why I feel a bit disappointed, but the authors did a good job writing a book that fits its audience.

What I did love was that Riley was into racing and this was actually the thing that made me buy the book. The fact that she lost her whole family before she turned 18, and was returned to her birth mother made an interesting turn of events.

Suddenly, she is at a rich mansion, facing a Cruella alike biological mother, that wants to turn her into something she’s not. Of course, she rebels, and on her first night there, she ends up racing and losing.

It’s there she meets Sebastian and his crew. She makes an enemy out of him.

Beware of the cliffhanger!!

Dark Glitter (The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club #1) by CM Stunich & Tate James

Ciarah O’Rourke was born into torture.
A human spirit reincarnated in the body of an ancient fae goddess, she’s spent the last five years in iron shackles, her mind poisoned with magic for secrets she doesn’t know.

Waking up in a dirty alley with no memory of her escape, Ciarah finds herself in the hands of The Wild Hunt Motorcycle Club–a ruthless and violent group of bikers with faerie blood in their veins.

Arlo. Reece. Killian.
Three men drenched in death, sin, and old magic.
From their clubhouse in the middle of the Louisiana bayou, they’ll offer Ciarah the keys to unlock her memories and control the veil between worlds. But even her knights can’t erase the twisted scars that remind her they aren’t the only ones who hunt.

When The Wild Hunt rides, the souls of the dead join their parade.
All that’s missing now is their queen.

DARK GLITTER is the first of three books in THE WILD HUNT MOTORCYCLE CLUB series, a full-length reverse harem novel with dark faeries, werewolves, goddesses, voodoo magic, steamy scenes, graphic violence, cursing, and a supernatural motorcycle club.

Excerpt Dark Glitter by CM Stunich

My years of torment ended with a sharp gasp, my first breath of freedom tainted with the stench of rat shit and stale urine. That’s what woke me from seemingly endless torture, the urban stink of a city.

Of course, I couldn’t remember any of it.

As I blinked myself awake, my damaged mind pulled a curtain over the memories, a veil to shroud me from the pain. It wasn’t something I had the energy to fight—or that I’d even want to if I could.

I peeled my heavy lids apart, the motion like the scraping of sandpaper against eyes too used to absolute darkness. It had been a long time since I’d seen even the dim, depressing lighting of an alleyway. How long, I didn’t know. My memory was fractured glass, the pieces scattered and sharp.

I let out a small soundless scream when I came face-to-face with the wicked dark eyes of a rat. My back hit a dumpster as I scrambled frantically to get away from the small creature, my panicked gaze flicking around my new environment like a trapped animal. Tall brick walls rose up on either side of me, framing the navy velvet of a night sky.

Where the fuck am I?

It was dark, but streetlights and glowing neon signs lit the neighborhood outside of the alley I was crouched in. Shadows shrouded me, giving me a temporary feeling of security while I frantically searched my memory for where I was … or who I was.

My wrists and ankles ached and I could see thick bands of bruising and raw wounds around them, like I’d been held prisoner somewhere. Surely that would be the sort of thing that was impossible to forget? What the fuck had I done to deserve being held prisoner? It must’ve been something awful though, for me to feel this sick, this detached from my own body.

Hot iron, burning my flesh, scalding me, making me bleed.

I blinked and the random flash of memory was gone, tucked safely away from my fragile mind. It wouldn’t do to dish up the demons of my past just yet. Closing my eyes against a wave of fatigue, I sucked in shallow breaths of the stale air, the scent of garbage tainting my tongue, and put a hand to my side. There was a burning sensation there, like a blade buried between my ribs. It made bile rise in my throat as I fought to control the churning of my stomach.

It was hard to decide which was worse off: my body … or my mind.

Fractured memories from different times and places assaulted me in waves. A rowdy bar, a peaceful glade, the sun shining on the sea. But they were puzzle pieces
with no reference, just bits of color and shape I had no clue what to do with.

Had I been in jail, punished for a crime? That would explain the marks on my wrists and ankles, wouldn’t it? But my clothes weren’t like any sort of prison uniform I’d ever seen, just a dirty, bloodstained cotton dress and no shoes. The clothing didn’t seem anywhere near appropriate for the weather; it was cold enough that I could see my breath misting in front of me, so I clearly hadn’t planned to be out here …

My quiet panic was abruptly intruded on by a heavy metal door clanging open just feet from where I was crouched. A young girl in a greasy waitress uniform stepped out and propped the door open with a stray brick before lighting up a cigarette.

Terrified, I remained frozen to the spot, both figuratively and literally, praying she wouldn’t see me. How on earth would I explain what I was doing out here? It was clearly the middle of winter and I was dressed in little more than a nightgown.

Oh yeah, and I had no memory of who I was let alone who it was I was running from.

“Hey, girl,” she said, spotting me, “what the hell are you doing lurking in this shit-filled alley?” The woman took a drag on her cigarette, blonde hair gathered back in a messy ponytail, stray strands curling wildly around her face.

She took a couple of steps closer to me, and I found myself preparing for a fight, awaiting the first blow with pursed lips and a defiant lift to my chin.

Poison Throne (Royals of Arbon Academy Book 3) by Tate James & Jaymin Eve

They’re waiting for you.

Those four words should have been a warning. They should have filled Violet with dread. But she was so focused on Rafe’s disappearance, she forgot.

The resistance was supposed to be fighting for a better world. A group of freedom fighters formed during the Monarch War, pushing back against laws that would see everyone enslaved. For a while there, they gave hope.

But with power comes corruption. The Society has been quietly amassing the strength and backing to become a real threat, and not everyone wants to use that power for good.

In a world torn apart by the death of monarchs, new leaders rise. Violet dives headfirst into the viper’s nest with one singular goal: rescue the stolen prince who possesses half her heart.

With the unwavering support of Jordan at her side, Violet knows she can face whatever the resistance throws at them. Even if she was the intended target all along.

Keep your friends close.
Keep your enemies closer.
Never forget the betrayals of the past.

The end of an era is here.

And Today I Die by Tate James & CM Stunich

My life is no fairy-tale.

It’s a nightmare.

The land is slowly dying, my stepmother wants to kill me, and my only friend is a talking doll.

But any life is better than death, so when the dark witch Baba Yaga offers me a fool’s bargain to save mine, I accept. Her cottage drinks blood, she keeps headless animals as pets, and her three indentured knights look at me like I’m a goddess.

One burns hot as the summer sun, one is as wild as the frozen winter, and the other is as tricky as an autumn day. Together, we can survive our nightmarish servitude; together, we can find our freedom and our happiness.

But only if I don’t die today.

Excerpt And Today I Die by Tate James & CM Stunich

(C) Tate James and CM Stunich (unedited)

A bucket of water crashed over Mak’s head, and he let out a flurry of cursing that would’ve made an entire tavern full of sailors blush. Aleksei was standing there, glaring at his friend and not looking at all sorry for dousing him with ice water.

“You, my friend,” Mak snapped as he stood up and yanked his pants into place. “Have just killed my boner. What do you want?”

“Grandmother needs us now,” he snarled, flicking his eyes over to me and examining my bare shoulders and calves like he was hungry for me. But he ripped his gaze away just as quickly and went back to scowling like the asshole I already knew he was.

“She knows about … this,” Kirill whispered, his voice threaded with steel. Speaking of steel … I noticed the dagger the witch had given me sitting on a side table and padded across the floor to pick it up. The men were too busy talking to notice what I was doing.

“No, thank the gods,” Aleksei said, running his fingers through his gold-blonde hair. Where my hair was like a slice of sunshine on snow, his was a summer afternoon on the shores of a lake, bright and vibrant. “There’s a vila in the woods, and it’s poking holes in Baba Yaga’s barrier spells.”

“A vila,” Kirill replied, turning his gold eyes on Mak who was busy adjusting his crotch. Hmm. I’d much rather get wet between the thighs than have a massive tree branch catching on the inside of my slacks when turned on. Just sayin’. “She’s drawn to Spring.”

“More like she’s hungry for all of that power–” Mak started and then stopped, clenching his jaw tight. With a huge exhale, he closed his eyes and finished his sentence in a way I was almost certain was not his original intention. “That Baba Yaga used to resurrect Lissa.”

Mak cursed again and didn’t bother with a shirt, yanking an old, tattered leather coat over his shoulders and strapping on a pair of curved scimitars.

“A vila,” I said, and the three men snapped their gazes over to me like they’d forgotten I was there. I was already in the process of digging through the small, raggedy dresser next to Mak. He was the smallest and slenderest of the three men, so I figured if I were going to borrow some clothes … “A wind spirit.”

“Oh, no you don’t.” Mak plucked the pants out of my hands, and when I reached up to grab them, I dropped my towel. I had never before felt my bare ass so plainly. It was practically glowing. Full moon, indeed. Maybe I really was a moon daughter or whatever?

“Please give the pants back,” I said through gritted teeth. No way was I bending down and flashing … well, everyone knows what happens when you bend over naked. I held out my hands, but Mak just chucked the pants into the hay pile behind him and crossed his arms over his bare chest.

Well, fine, screw him.

Altered by Lead (Undercover Sinners #2) by CM Stunich & Tate James

My life will never be the same, altered by lead, damaged but not broken.
I’m becoming a new me.
I won’t run any longer; this time, I’m the hunter instead of the prey.

But it takes hard work, skill, and a bit of luck to catch a mob boss.
I’m going to need all three to survive this.
Especially when I’ve got five gorgeous a**holes for teachers—and occasional bedmates.

The Blackbirch Company.
The organization my new lovers work for, it’s just as dangerous as the criminals they’re paid to hunt.
So why am I so desperate to become one of them?

Either way, in their arms, I grow.
I thrive.
And I’ll become a force to be reckoned with.

**ALTERED BY LEAD is Book Two in the UNDERCOVER SINNERS trilogy. This is a romantic suspense with unapologetic anti-heroes and is fully intended for a mature audience.**

Format: Kindle (198 pages)
Rating: 7/10

I loved the 1st book so I was excited to get my hands on the 2nd one as soon as it went live, but I feel like I have mixed signals about it.

First, let me tell you that I loved and will read all of their books, because this duo is on fire.

Second, while I do enjoy hot, steamy scenes, I am also invested in a book where the plot has me on the edge of my seat. Altered by Lead is not you usual RH because these 5 men and you leading lady are the most sinners’ characters I have ever read. I had to block the part where they do some very filthy stuff and it involves a church.

While I was hoping to find out more of the plot, I feel like this book was 99% sex and 1% plot. Which of course, was in the end to bring on the guns and the mighty cliffhanger.

For me it was a bit disappointing because I like my heroines strong and less sex-addict and I understand character development, but sometimes It felt like she was just being used in a twisty way.

I remember my first 30% being aware on when the story needs to kick in, but it was ALL sex. And in the end, I was like… that’s it?????

So yeah… I can’t review this properly because I felt this was a halfway through book, which shouldn’t be counted as a full one.

Title: Altered by Fire (Undercover Sinners Trilogy #1)

Shelves: Contemporary; Romance; RH; Dark Romance;
Format: Kindle (184 pages)
Rating: 10/10

I feel like this one has been one of the dirtiest books I’ve read, and I try to read a little bit of everything. I usually mold on the world the authors create and try not to be too real about it, but I can say that in this case… Holly Sh*t!

How can someone enjoy it all the way with these dirty fake priests. I mean, some things were a bit too much but I tried to block them out.

I can say with totally sincerity, that this book is NOT for everyone. If you’re too religious I do not recommend it, but I guess if you’re searching for this book… welcome to the dark side!!!

Fair is fair and aside from what I said above, this book is sexy, steamy and our boys do not fear to show it.

All in all, it kept me interested and I can’t wait to read next, because the book ends with you wanting to know what’s next.

The cliffhanger is not that bad.. ok, not that bad, but it’s there.

I also need to say that this series was previously written under Kate Morgan, a Pen Name for the duo.

Playboy Princes (Royals of Arbon Academy #2) by Jaymin Eve & Tate James

She’s my last chance.

Those four words echo in Violet Spencer’s mind, tugging at her curiosity even as rage builds within her.

Arbon Academy was supposed to be a bright new start. An opportunity for greatness, and something an orphan girl could only dream of. For a while there, it seemed to be exactly that.

But Violet’s bright future is suddenly looking dim. Arbon Academy and Prince Alex are nothing but a facade. A trap.

In a sinister world of ballgowns and backstabbing, of perfumes and politics, of indulgent parties and illegal sword fights, Violet now faces the biggest challenge of all. Recovering her shattered heart from the prince who crushed it.

Supported by her new friends, Violet wants to make Alex feel the pain of his betrayal. Prince Rafe wants nothing more than to help make that happen, but things aren’t always so straightforward.

Don’t break tradition.
Don’t let them know you know.
Don’t lose your heart… again.

These rules will keep Violet alive. But at what cost?
