The Story of Us by Barbara Elsborg.

51MvHdHSjSL._SY346_

Two boys. One love. Ten summers.

Are you okay?
The first words Zed says to Caspian, and the first time someone has cared about the answer. On a hot summer’s day, the lives of two boys are changed forever. A rebel and a risk taker, Caspian doesn’t give a damn for the consequences. Studious and obedient, Zed is the good boy who is never good enough.

The two couldn’t be more different, but there’s one thing they share, a need to belong to someone who understands them, someone who cares. Their friendship goes deeper than either can possibly imagine. They’re young, in love, and planning their future when an act of betrayal tears them apart.

Fate deals its hand. Seasons pass. Zed’s words follow Caspian through pain, fear and into the darkest of places. Friendships can last a lifetime, even when the world conspires to crush them. But this is more than friendship. This is love and they’re not going to let it slip through their fingers.

Warning
The Story of Us is a tale of love and survival, and the triumph of good over evil against the odds. It’s a new adult contemporary romance that deals with family and social issues. There is violence and cruelty to children but not sexual assault. The story has sexual situations, dark elements and suspense. The events and locations are a mixture of real and fictional. The characters are fictional.

MY REVIEW.

WOW just WOW,I just have no words how this story made me feel,what a beautiful heartfelt journey for Zeb and Caspian, these two met as young boys fourteen and fifteen and there journey that spans over the next ten years was an emotional ride.

The details that this author must have had to find out to get into this book is awesome,you automatically fall in love with these two characters Zeb and Caspian that they will have you routing for them at every turn.The emotional ride and heart felt life they lead had me absorbed where i couldn’t put this book down for a minuet.

They came from different backgrounds but they was both Abused,Zeb physically and Caspain mentally where all they lived for was the summers they spent together in the tree house while they was young,and the hot summer they met there lives was changed forever.

There are books that you love and can’t wait to devour the story, and they are books that you just can’t put down,this was both of these and it is a story that is going to stay with me for along time to come.I love Barbara’s book’s but this just surpassed any i have read before,her writing is amazing with her world building and all the feels you get with this book is phenomenal.

This book was worth far more than five stars,this was a gripping story from beginning to end.

Roma King by Callie Hart.

51WvqoctSRL._SY346_

** Roma King is part one in the Roma Royals Duet series. The second and final book in the series, Roma Queen, will be released early February 2019**

“911. What is your emergency?”

Every night, Zara Llewelyn picks up the phone and assists people in distress. House fires. Assault. Motor vehicle accidents. Home invasions…

Between the hours of six and two, she is the answer to a thousand cries for help. But when the payphone outside Zara’s apartment building mysteriously begins ringing night after night, the very last thing she wants to do is pick it up. And yet, she can’t seem to help herself…

Pasha Rivin’s trying to outrun fate. He’s been running from it for years now, but escape isn’t in his cards. As the oldest son of the oldest Roma family in the country, he’s not just a member of a proud and fiercely traditional clan. He is their reluctant king…and now he’s expected to find a wife.

The fiery redhead that shows up on his doorstep, following a trail of breadcrumbs, hunting for a missing little boy, is the last person Pasha’s mother has in mind, however.
She’s an outsider, an intruder, and as far as his family are concerned, she’s not welcome on their land, let alone in their king’s bed.

Pasha has never allowed his destiny to stand in the way of what he wants, however. And he’s never wanted anything more than he wants the girl with the burning green eyes.

MY REVIEW.

Fantastic, Hot, Thrilling, I love Callie Hart’s style of writing and was not disappointed in this unique story line that differs from her others books which i loved about this story,different.

There was mystery,suspense and lots of sexually charged moments along the way through out which are panty melting hot!!Roma King is a book you need to read as it was intricate and woven so well that this story will keep you guessing all the way through.

Zara Llewelyn is a 911 operator who loves her job but after a disturbing call from a five year old boy,it plays on her mind and she can’t stop the feeling that something is not quite right.The disturbing events that then happen along with her nightly hot erotic wet dreams of a hot sexy alpha male who she instantly forgets his face upon waking, it’s taking its toll on her.

Pasha Rivin is a hot exiled Roma (Gypsy) King,but his family want him back to take his role where he belongs,he has made a life for himself the last three years of his exile and likes his freedom from responsibility.He has been having erotic dreams of a red haired female that he calls his firefly that have been plaguing him for years,then a chance meeting of Zara and Pasha is explosive from the off,the chemistry between these two is off the charts HOT!!.

This story is told in dual POV which i loved plus this book is part one of a duet with the second book out in January,thank god for that as this does end on a cliffhanger and had me intrigued how this ended.Can’t wait for the next book and to see more of Zara and Pasha.

Solace by S.E.Cooper.

“I didn’t choose to love you,” I whispered. “But now that I do, no storm is strong enough to keep me away from you.”
Nyah Hunter has always believed in love at first sight. When she first sets eyes on James Parker, ‘Big’ to his friends, Nyah realises he’s the man she’s been waiting for all her life. The only problem is, Big doesn’t want to know. He has his reasons for keeping the beautiful blonde at bay, but Nyah won’t give up without a fight. How can he make her see that the safest place for her is as far away from him as possible?
For Big, loving Nyah means risking more than just his heart. It means confronting a past too painful to process and recalling haunting memories too bittersweet to share.
Intent on protecting those he loves, Big sets out to defeat his demons, once and for all; a battle that’s likely to see him perish in the process. Only, he hasn’t counted on the unusual collection of individuals willing to work together for the greater good.
With fresh hope in his heart and an unlikely army by his side, Big dares to dream that this time, he might get to live free.
However, has he underestimated just how far his enemy will go to destroy him?

MY REVIEW.

WOW just WOW,If i thought book one was off the charts fantastic,book two just freaking blew me away,this was the best MC story i have read in a long time,i just have no words to describe this author, as this is only her second book to date but her story telling and her world building is phenomenal.

This tells the story of Big (James Parker)an ex MC of the Redeemers Club who left that life ten years ago but they still help each other out in a crisis.Nyah Carter was drawn to Big from the first moment she laid eyes on him, but he is having none of it and trying to keep his distance because of his past events with the MC Club that he doesn’t want to get Nyah involved in.

Nothing ever pans out as big wants, as Nyah is a strong woman and she has set her sites on Big and nothing is going to get in her way.This had all the feels with how the story started to unfold,but just when you think everything is going smoothly BOOM this author changes the goal posts that leave you reeling and totally gobsmacked.My emotions were all over the place through out this story and the events that unfolded which, bugger, i never saw coming at all.This had me bawling in a few places along with happy tears as well.

What i also loved about both these books is that the secondary characters are really likeable so i am hoping we get to have some of there story’s at a later date.
What a fabulous, powerful,gripping thrilling,heartfelt,emotional story this was,the story was action packed through out where you didn’t have a clue what was going to happen,this is my kind of read.I love this authors writing,i can’t get enough of her books,i have already pre-ordered the next book,but boo i have to wait till end of Jan.If i could give more than five stars i would as this deserves so much more.Pure Brilliance.

MY REVIEW.

YES He’s back *ERIC* Sexiest Vampire ever and Jasmine…..I freaking loved this book,just what the doctor ordered,it seemed like forever i was waiting for this book,and now i have read it i was not disappointed at all with how this went down.But Claire Marta you can be so evil at times,but a fantastic story.#TeamEric.

It has seemed like ages since Eric has been around, but now he is back at long last,and he is just as sexy as ever.What is that saying ‘ absence makes the heart grow fonder’,well this was definitely the case for Eric as he has realised that he needs Jasmine in his life, but what he didn’t bank on is that Jasmine has now grown stronger and she certainly puts Eric through the Wringer before she will let him back in to her heart and bed.

They are all on a case in Budapest for Mark’s best friend at his museum,the only one missing is Twitch,this is a story packed full of action and suspense were Jasmine is on the edge with her magic as she is feeling and seeing ghosts that are roaming the museum.Throw in a crazy ass bitch Angel into the mix and we have a great climax to this story and with the full blood moon playing havoc with all the supernaturals this makes for a crazy ending.

I did miss Twitch and his funny one liners,but having ERIC back and on form, him realising that he needs Jasmine in his life he goes all out to woo her back into his arms and bed.The ending has left me intrigued but worried what is going to happen next for Eric and Jasmine as there is more to this story that we need answers to.Five Huge Sexy ERIC Stars.

“Daddy, what is a white lie?”
My father put down his spoon and looked at me thoughtfully.
“Why’d you ask, Princess?”
“I heard you talking yesterday and you said ‘one more white lie isn’t going to make a difference.’ I just want to know what you meant.”
“You heard that, huh?” My father tilted his head to study me. “It’s just a small lie you tell when you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. It’s nothing for you to worry about.”
My eyes grew wide. “Like when you told Aunt Rena that her pie was good even though it tasted icky?”
“Exactly.” He smiled.
“Or when you told the man last week that you hadn’t seen Uncle Bruno and you had?”
The Smile fell from his face and he straightened in his chair. “No, Princess, that was a different kind of lie.”
Scrunching up my nose, I asked, “What kind of lie was that?”
My father swallowed hard before replying. “That’s the kind of lie where you have to have a real good memory.”

As an inquisitive child, the woman known as Clarissa Solano, could never have imagined how significant those words would become. That she would spend years twisting the truth: hoping and praying that she would not contradict herself and expose the secrets she keeps locked inside.

Most of the people in her life don’t really know her at all. She forces them to swallow her lies, but she is the one who feels the bitter aftertaste of deception.

When Lane Hunter sweeps into her life, she finds herself opening up in ways she never thought possible. He sees beyond the façade to the woman beneath and knows instantly that he wants her. However, all is not as it seems and when secrets and lies are exposed, it threatens to destroy them all.

MY REVIEW.

A Mind blowing heartfelt debut book from this author.Well i don’t know where to start but this was a fast paced story that flowed with each chapter i read,i found i could not put this down as wanting to find out how this was ever going to work out for Ari and Lane.

Lane Hunter was a bodyguard that was supposed to watch over Charissa (Ari) and keep her safe,but the more time they spent together the chemistry and sparks were flying.They had too many secretes that they was each keeping from each other that there relationship was never going to work whilst they was with each other.But saying that, they was explosive together and the sex was pantie meltingly HOT!!

The twist and turns of this story had me glued to my kindle,as i did not have a clue at all what was going to happen next.My emotions were all over the place from laughing along with Ari and Lane to crying with the heartache with what happened to Lane in his life.This had me gripped through out with the rollocoaster of a ride that this author put me through

I love it when you find new authors and that there books are truly amazing that you know you are going to read all there books in the future,can’t wait for the next Hunter book.Five huge Hunter stars.

Torn by Natasha Knight.

41hlyOqRiGL._SY346_

Taking her is my right.
Breaking her, my duty.

I was always going to choose Helena. I knew it the instant I saw her.

She’s different than the others. There’s a darkness about her. Something wild inside her. And it calls to the beast inside me.

But she isn’t what I expect. With every word and every touch, she pushes me, burrows deep under my skin, challenging the rules, upending history.

And all the while, I see how my brother watches her. He wants her, and as the rules stand, she’ll become his in one year’s time.

Except that I have no intention of giving her up.

MY REVIEW.

HOLY F**ING MOLY……..This is the conclusion of the Dark Legacy duet,and boy what a conclusion it was,the anticipation and suspense just builds and builds the further into this story you read.

Torn was a deliciously dark, sexy, erotic story that will have you on the edge of your seat waiting to find out if Sebastian and Helena get there HEA.This was a phenomenal book but be prepared to have you mind blow away with the story line,My god Natasha sure knows how get you into the intense rollocoaster that this book will take you on,her writing is just superb and you will not be disappointed.

Have i mentioned that this book was HOT!! Smoking HOT!!,holy moly this is going to have you melting with sexual needs,i don’t want to say too much but Hot Damn be ready as this is dirty and riveting.Sebastian is one sexy ass alpha male,plus we get to see more of his brother Gregory in this story,and what i saw i loved, i definitely need to have more from him and hope that he gets his own book.

You will have no idea how this story is going to pan out and trust me it was full of surprises,twists and then BOOM! Natasha just knocks you for six and changes the goal posts with this intense story.This book was everything and more that you want in a read.

Only one gripe for me and that was i wanted to know how Sebastian was after he got shot at the end of Taken,but we didn’t find out till half way through the book what had happened.Four and half HOT Sexy stars.

About Sloane Murphy

My name is Sloane, but people call me a variety of names, particularly after they read my books. If you’ve read them, I’m sure you can use your imagination to work them out. I was born in England and have lived in small towns and cities ever since. My husband, Chris, is the most supportive person in my life. Without his love, help and patience I wouldn’t be where I am today. Living my dreams, with him by my side and our crazy fur baby creating chaos. At school I drifted through, achieving average grades. I fell into administration and sales jobs, thinking that I couldn’t really do anything else, despite always wanting more. I’d been writing poetry and song lyrics since the age of about 11, but my love of reading has always been strong. In 2012, I got my first kindle and discovered the works of Samantha Young, Addison Moore, Amanda Hocking, Tijan, A.E Murphy and many many more. In 2015 I stumbled into the indie world by accident. I emailed a certain indie author after falling head over heels for her books, and she became one of the best friends I will ever have. She’s a gladiator! But she pulled me in, and took me to my first book signing. She encouraged me to start my blog. She encouraged me to put my art out into the world, first with teasers & covers. Then when I finally told her about my stories, she encouraged me to put them out there. Between her and the one I love the most – thank you, Lauren Rowe – (my twinnie, and my best friend) I found the confidence to put myself out there, and the rest, as they say, is history.

MY REVIEW.

DAMN!! was not expecting that at all,this book has just blown my mind with this story and how it all unfolded.

This book grabbed me from the start and didn’t let me go till the end,damn and what a ending that was,WOW i was gobsmacked, i never saw that coming at all,Brilliant.

This is all about the Princess Emilia of the summer palace and Prince Cade from the winter palace.It tells the story of how they met and what transpired to make Emilia hate him.Loved Emilia right from the off as she is a strong and feisty character that has been through the mill with her parents and has been forced to go to the winter palace to be a candidate for the marriage to the one person she now hates.

Love how Sloane brings her characters to life where you either hate them or love them,plus you never know what is coming.This book had me seriously on the edge of my seat all the way through, and boy what a rollocoaster of a ride you are in for with this story trust me.

There was plenty of twists that keep you guessing though out, and the ending i can assure you,you will never see coming,it flowed along at a fast pace and i now need the next book after that shock ending.Sheer Brilliant,forgot how much i love Sloan’s writing.Five Huge Seelie Stars. 

Chastely Bitten by Lexi C Foss.

41FZQoI7qsL

Once upon a time, humankind ruled the world while lycans and vampires lived in secret.
This is no longer that time. 

Juliet

It is my duty to obey, to give my body and blood to a vampire master until he no longer has use for me.

There is no escape.
Nowhere to run.
Follow the rules or die.
I don’t want to die.

Darius

Twenty-two years of conditioning has crafted the perfect poison–a weapon my enemies won’t see coming. I’ll break her, train her, and use her to take down everyone who stands in my way.

She’s alluring.
She’s perfect.
And she’s mine.

Welcome to the future where the superior bloodlines make the rules.
Proceed at your own risk.

****

“Darius,” I breathed as darkness dimmed the stars. Some part of me knew we were heading down a dangerous path. I struggled to emerge enough to warn him, to beg him…

“D…” My mouth felt dryer than it should. Heavy. I tried to lick my lips but couldn’t move my tongue.

Everything felt so much cooler than moments ago.

Numb.
Darius.
Midnight consumed my vision as I blinked into a starless night.

So alone.
I always expected to die…
I never expected to want to live.

Until today.
Until Darius inspired hope.
Another cruel Vampire joke.

I should have known…

MY REVIEW.

OH. JUST. WOW. Your immense imagination on PNR one of my favourite genre is phenomenal,what i love about you Lexi is that this is a unique refreshing take on Vampire and Lycan Lore which you make so interesting and different that it held me captive from beginning to end.

This deliciously dark story is about Vampire’s and Lycan’s that rule supreme over all humans, who are nothing but are just used for food and sex,this different take is a refreshing change from any other books i have read,which kept me gripped though out.

Darius is a high society vampire with an agenda who buys Juliet at a auction,she is a blood virgin slave who has been trained to be the perfect submissive and slave at all times.But Darius agenda is to break Juliet of her submissive tenancies as he want’s to use her intoxicating blood to his advantage against the vampire’s in his way.

This story drew me in so much that it is all i am thinking about,which is pure genius from Lexi,then there is Darius,well what can i say other than that he is the most sexiest male to come out of Lexi’s books,he is just pure hot sexy as sin hotness,you will just fall in love with this character i can guarantee.The chemistry that develop’s between Darius and Juliet is scorching hot and the sex is mind blowing phew!!.

You need this book in your life,if you love a dark pnr you are going to be in for a real treat as this story is going to blow your mind,but you won’t regret this at all.SUPURB.
