 Beau 
 
Not everyone born of Mafiya blood wants to be in the life.
I was determined to never go anywhere near it. Headed in the 
opposite direction, I pushed away from my family and their legacy.
 
Until they needed me.
And then...so did she.
 
I got sucked in too deep, going after her and trying to save them all. 
Now, there's no turning back. I'd do anything for my cousins, for Sasha. 
 
After all, family is everything.
 
 
 
“Sapphire Knight hit it out of the park with this surprise book.” ~Melony Hobgood
 
“I loved Beau, he was a protector and he was caring and thoughtful…” - Heather Andrews
This is a new author to us and I have to say that we liked our first read by them.The plot and characters were engaging and it was a nice Romantic Suspense something I don't read a lot of so this was a nice change.
 
Beau had to be my favorite character of all the characters in the story.I found him to be kind ,sweet,protective,loyal.deadly,dangerous,had a conscious.I love how his family respected his choice to be a cop and it never seem to effect his relationship with his family and cousins as they didn't alway work within the law.Having your family members being part of the mafia had to be stressing as you straddle both worlds especially as you were referred to a the prince on more than one occasion. Sometimes distance from ones family is not always enough even though you chose not to be part of the family business its still part of who you are.But, who you are and you family are known for is protection and influence and power.Times like these are when your family connections work to your advantage. We saw many changes in Beau as he has seen is shared of violence and the messed up world be life in being and undercover cop but when he infiltrates a human trafficking ring.Once inside he has encountered the depravities of  such men that he so sickened by what he has seen and heard that he his out for blood and would like to kill them all.Being a cop has been important to him but, he soon realizes that being on the other-side of the law has more advantages to eliminating scum he has thus far encountered.He has a choice to make.
 
One of the other things that I enjoyed about the story is how his family had his back the deeper he got in they were their to protect his back as well help free as many women as possible and shut this operation down.
 
Sasha was one of the women Beau was able to save.It amazes me that she was strong enough to survive the depravities that she did and remain somewhat sane.Beau's attraction to Sasha is apparent but after everything she has gone through he only wants her to be free and being tied to him isn't in her best interest or so he keeps telling himself.It is a battle of wills to see who caves first as friendship and love evolve.
 
I enjoyed the stories plot and the characters as well as the outcome it was filled with danger,romance,battle of wills and how influence and power are more important than the law itself in some instances.For me I believe that Sasha needs someone like Beau who is both kind and possessive as well as dangerous even though parts of his personality are not going to be a positive sometimes within their relationship she is going to need his strengths to lean on.I loved seeing that these hard rigged men let us see their softer side on occasion as it was sweet and that they cared and that they did have hearts after-all as well as being protective of your families mate.
 
Although I enjoyed the story some of Sasha's  and her actions and naivety got on my nerves as her requests were a bit unreasonable and had her acting like a child on more than one occasion .I wanted to smack her for making stupid choices.What were thinking you lived among men like Beau and his family your whole-life?In this case it was about safety and protection not making you a prisoner or taking something away from you.
 
Looking forward to reading what comes next as Beau is still searching for Nico's sister. I have a feeling we will be seeing this cast of characters at a later date.
 
 
Recommend read to all.
 
4 stars from us

Review: A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses #3) by Sarah J. Maas
A Court of Wings and Ruin (A Court of Thorns and Roses) - Sarah J. Maas

 

Looming war threatens all Feyre holds dear in the third volume of the #1 New York Times bestselling A Court of Thorns and Roses series.

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees. But to do so she must play a deadly game of deceit-and one slip may spell doom not only for Feyre, but for her world as well.

As war bears down upon them all, Feyre must decide who to trust amongst the dazzling and lethal High Lords-and hunt for allies in unexpected places.

In this thrilling third book in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from Sarah J. Maas, the earth will be painted red as mighty armies grapple for power over the one thing that could destroy them all.

 

*First off. If you have not read the previous books you should not read this review, because it will contain spoilers from the first two books.*

 

OMG. I loved this book so much. I didn’t think I could love it more than A

court Of Mist and Fury, but I did. I loved everything about this book. The writing, the characters, and the journey it takes us on.  It started out a tad slow but that could have been because she was back in the Spring Court. Also we get knee deep into and war is upon the people we learned to love and even maybe hate throughout the previous books.  

This book was a complete rollercoaster ride of emotions. I laughed one minute and cried the next. Or went from swooning to wanting to stab someone in the eyes. Plus it was action packed and had so many twist and turns I was thought I would get whiplash.

To of course not spoil anything about this book I will not go too much into detail about all the characters or of course what is happening to them, I will just make a quick overview and thoughts about them.

Feyre, loved her, while last book was all about her PDST this book is about healing and moving on for her, but also helping her sisters transition into the fay world.

I really liked that she was not just fine from one second to the next that she still had her moments and panic and not all was just forgotten. But I think what I loved most was her journey and how much she really has grown since book one. It is clear early on, how much she has grown and how far she is willing to go.

Rhysand .….My man Rhysand………. What is not to love about him. Again we saw how much he is willing to give to protect those he loves. But also how much he already went through to protect them. The more we know about him the more I love him, I didn't even know if it is possible to love him more. His speech before the final battle may or may not have left me in tears.

Lucien, as I mentioned about the other two books I always had a soft spot for him. I really like him but we still need to learn so much more about him. Even though we learn some really surprising things about him. As it ended in last book with his mating bond he deals with it in this book.  I’m not sure if it has been said yet but I have a feeling we see more of him in the next books. I have a feeling there is much more about him to tell.

Speaking about the next books and Lucien, I think we will also see and learn more about Elain. I really didn’t care for her in this book. She was a little left out of everything or so it felt like. We learned very little about her and her new Fae powers. She seemed more of a burden most of the time than anything else. I think or maybe even hope that we get more of her also in the next books.

Tamlin, yup he is still around and kicking. We also learn some new things about him. But overall I do not know if I ever can trust him. Though he does has his good moments in this book as well.

Mor. I loved Mor in this book and we also learn more about her and her past and what she would like for her future. I felt so much for her at times.

Amren, wow overall just wow. I always enjoyed her but this book toped it all. Again we learn much more about her as with most of the other players in the book. She also kind of take Nesta under her wing.

Now to Nesta, I figured she would be a power house but I had no idea how much or how much I would end up loving her and her growth. I really wpould ot mind a whole book about her, oh and Cassian of course.

Cassian and Azriel both of course play a big part in this book. I loved both of them and their journey and how much they would lay down for Rhys and the others in order to protect them all.

We met of course some new and old faces again. Some surprised me and I was shocked, thought I knew it all but boom we get a new twist.

 Overall, epic book and it left me wanting more. We get it all... love, hate, betrayal, humor, action .Some big sacrifices we made that left me in tears.

But the ending still seemed peaceful and just right for this epic journey throughout this and the other books.

I give it full 5 ★

 

 

Some of my favorite Quotes:

 

“It's a rare person to face who they are and not run from it - not be broken by it.”

 

***

 

What we think to be our greatest weakness can sometimes be our biggest strength

 

***

 

Why should I be scared of an oversized bat who likes to throw temper tantrums?

 

***

 

Words had become as forge in and hard to reach as the stars.

 

***

 

And in the distance, so faint I thought I might have imagined it, a beast’s roar cleaved the land

 

***

 

A hand brushed my back. Then Rhys groaned, "If we're all here, either things went very, very wrong or very right." Cassian's broken laugh cracked out of him.

Enjoyable continuation of the series and world.
Veil of Mists (Seven Deadly Veils Book 2) - Diana Marik

This is the next installment in the world of the Seven Deadly Veils. The story progresses with lots of secrets, duplicity, danger, and passion. I enjoyed the deepening of the connection between Remare and Miranda. I have been waiting for this. As well, Miranda's abilities are growing and changing. The ending of this story surprised me and had me laughing as the different points of view were shared. I have enjoyed this series to this point, and this is no exception. I look forward to more of this world and watching Miranda become the person she is meant to be.

I received a copy of this story as a gift, and it is a selection of the Book Obsessed Chicks Review Team. This is my unsolicited review.

Bone Gap by Laura Ruby
Bone Gap - Laura Ruby

A couple of years back, I heard how unique and amazing Bone Gap was from a number of sources. I have always kept my eyes open to it and I always told myself that I should read it at some point. Well, as it always seems to happen, years went by and I still haven't read Bone Gap. Until now. And was a fantastically bizarre little book it was!

 

I want to start off by saying that if you want to hear this book then DON'T READ THE SYNOPSIS ON THE INSIDE FLAP OF THIS BOOK. In fact, don't read the synopsis anywhere. I read it and it gives away a major plot point of the book in the synopsis. You actually don't find out about this plot point until almost then end of the book... and any synopsis you read about this book gives it away from the very beginning. I hate when publishers do that. Yeah, you can still enjoy the book even if you know it... but I, personally, feel that knowing cheapens the book a bit. I still really enjoy this book and recommend reading it even if you do know the "plot point," but try to avoid finding out anything about this book at all costs.

 

I don't even want to tell you anything about this book because I feel like it's best going into this book blind. I will say that Laura Ruby has a beautifully writing style and world building. She blends the real world with the fantastical effortlessly and has you questioning your own sanity whilst doing it. It's been a long time where I felt my mind was being messed with so badly I had to really slow down and analyze what was real and what was not within this world. But at the same time I could not put this book down. I wanted to understand this world. I wanted to know what was happening with the characters. I wanted to know everything! Laura Ruby did a great job in writing this book and I cannot wait to read more of her work.

 

And that's all I will say about this book. The characters are really well-developed, the plot is engaging, the writing is gorgeous, and I want more! Please read this book. If you like magical realism, fantasy, contemporary, beautiful writing, and complex characters, then give this a read. There's bullying, violence, sexual assault, and swearing so keep that in mind when picking this up. Otherwise, the only other warning I have to reiterate is to not read any synopsis about it if you want to know as little about this book going in. Other than that, I hope you enjoy reading this book!

Safe Words Book 2

Genre: New Adult Romance, Suspense
 
Years after being targeted in a violent, public attack, Seneca Graves is no longer the women she was. Once a forceful and outgoing writer and BDSM lifestyle advocate, she now secludes herself behind walls both physical and mental. When other survivors of the attack begin showing up dead, Seneca’s life is again bound up with her former lover, Special Agent John Book of the FBI. Their bond, and his willingness to submit, draws out Seneca’s strength and dominance.
At the same time, Holly Rabb and Jason Wills of the local police join the investigation. They are partners, dealing with their own feelings and dangerous flirtations. All are thrown together in a swirling mix of mystery, murder, and heated attraction as Seneca and Book become mentors to Holly and Jason in feminine-led love.
As the pressures of romance and investigations come to a head, secrets are revealed that put lives and careers at risk. The mystery deepens as Seneca makes plans for a return to public life, bringing the connections--and passion--to a head. Danger collides with sex, whips with skin, and dominance with love. Not just Seneca, but all four lovers must evolve and learn as a new killer rises to threaten them all, once again in a very public confrontation.

I loved it ! The story kept you on pins and needles the entire time.I loved Book and Seneca the had major chemistry together.The story was full of suspense and intrigue as well as murder.

With almost being murdered Seneca retreated into her own world for a bit.With Book back in her life things are becoming brighter and heating up again.Another threat to her life and Book is their to protect and serve once again.


Seneca and Books relationship first time around didn't work out but things have changed for Book and he truly understands what Seneca is asking from him and is totally into submitting for her so they can pick up where they left off and this time both give  100 percent to their relationship.


Book was my favorite as he went to great lengths to learn about the world she lived in and do whatever he needed to be part of that.Loved that he never stopped loving her all those years apart.


The story was full of tons of surprises super hot sex and was filled with a ton of drama all the while trying to save Secena's life and bring a serial killer to justice.Omg the ending didn't see that coming,A page turner from beginning to end.


I love the whole cast of characters and they were easy to connect and bond with.


A recommended read that goes in the keeper pile.




5 stars
 
 

Drury Jamison is not a bestselling author, yet. But he believes hard work will prevail. He has been writing since he could read and gave all his attention to the story at the expense of the rules.
 
Born an Army brat he finally settled and came to call the Missouri Ozarks home. While raising wonderful kids and failing at everything else he wrote screenplays, television scripts, advertising copy and filthy limericks. After many twists, and multiple once-in-a-lifetime life changing events, he returned to work on the short stories and novels he loved best.
