Review: Heaven's Sinners by Bella Jewel
Heaven's Sinners - Bella Jewel
4.5 I loved Spike's spikes Stars
"When are you gonna see there’s no point in fightin’ for something that don’t wanna be fought for?"
"I won’t, because everyone deserves to be fought for Spike. Even you."

I really wasn't sure what I was walking into when I started this. I was not a fan of the first book. At all. And that's putting it mildly. However, I thought that the author had potential once she worked through the kinks, and I was damn curious about Spike and his spikes. What? The man has spikes in a certain area of his body, and rumor had it he liked his women to remove them...with their mouth. You saying you wouldn't be curious?! Well either way, my pervy little mind was intrigued so of course I had to read it. I'm so glad to say that I was not disappointed with this one. I loved it!

Years ago, Spike and Ciara used to be friends. They weren't just close friends, they were inseparable.

While both had feelings for the other, youthful ignorance, fear of ruining their friendship and mistakes kept them apart. Young Ciara loved Spike, but her inability to see his feelings for her drove him right into the arms of another woman...her sister. Then one night something that was already rocky, takes a turn for the worst and Chey, Ciara's sister, gets killed in the crossfire of Spike's mistake in crossing another MC. Unable to work through her feelings of guilt, grief, and love, Ciara takes out her hurt on Spike and blames him for everything.

Now, having realized her mistake, Ciara is back. She wants Spike's forgiveness but most of all she wants to get back the boy that she knew simply as Danny. And she's willing to fight for him this time.

You know what’s so pathetic about this situation?" I rasp, my hands shaking. "It’s that no matter how angry I am at you, no matter how many times you spit hurtful words at me, or how many times I keep telling myself to walk away, I can’t. I want to save you. I want that friend that I know is in there. I can’t walk away, Spike. I hate you, and yet I can’t walk away."

Spike is working through regrets and grief of his own. He once loved Ciara with everything that he had, but her ignorance pushed him away, and her blame wounded him deeply. He's no longer the boy that she once knew.

Don’t want you to fuckin’ save me, Ciara. Don’t want you in my fuckin’ life. When will you get that through your head? I don’t want to be in your life. I didn’t chose you, I chose her. You need to fuckin’ move on. I am not the same person I was before."

But feelings from their past are not that easily forgotten, and even though Spike does everything he can to drive Ciara away, the pull between them is too strong to ignore.

 

This book had everything that I found lacking in the first. Emotion, great relationship development, and a story that I truly grew invested in. Spike and Ciara's relationship was filled with angst, emotion, and so much steam I felt like I needed a cold shower and a cigarette after every single encounter.

Come for me Tom Cat, fuckin’ come around my cock." "God, Spike, yes." "Say my name baby, fuckin’ say it." "Spike," I rasp.
"No, the other one. Say my real name," he growls, thrusting harder.
"Danny," I scream, my orgasm tearing through me like liquid fire.
"God, Danny."
 
 

This story might now be for everyone. There are a few things that I can see some might be uncomfortable with. One, is Spike's treatment of Ciara. He is incredibly cruel and callous to her at first. You can see that it stems from his hurt and grief, so it didn't bother me too much. There is also elements of voyeurism in this book. If that's something that makes you uncomfortable, this might not be for you. My pervy little mind ate it right up, so you will be getting zero complaints from this girl.

 

 
This is not a story about perfect love. It's a raw and gritty story about 2 people learning to forgive, move on, and find their way back to each other. Their road was not a smooth one. It was filled with pain, mistakes, and grief; and I devoured it in one day.
 
I loved that Ciara wasn't some meek little mouse. She had her moments where I wanted to smack her, but I really loved the way that she fought for Spike and stood up to him. Spike was just sexy as sin, him and his delicious piercings.
 
This book turned out to be such a pleasant surprise, and I'm looking forward to Jackson's story next. Especially with that ending...

Review: Hell's Knights by Bella Jewel
Hell's Knights - Bella Jewel

2.5 Meh stars

One day, a man is going to come along and sweep you away. He’s going to give you that feeling you can’t go back on, that feeling that will change your world.


Damn my clicker finger. She sees the words MC and a markdown to $.99 and she just HAS to one click. The compulsive bitch! Last time I allow her to make a decision for me.

I believe that the author had all the right ingredients for a fantastic book. But unfortunately I don't think she mixed them right, and the end result was a bit...well...meh. At least it was for me. The book didn't work for me for a number of reason. What are the reasons you ask? Well I'll tell you.

100
The amount of times that Cade called Addison "sugar". Yes I fucking counted. It drove me out of my ever loving mind. I was willing to overlook the "babe" and the overused "yeah" ending sentences, yeah? But the sugar thing. Gah! It was every other sentence. C'mon. Switch it up a bit here, Cade. There's honey, baby, sweetheart, twat. Freaking anything but sugar!! I'm pretty sure I got to a point where every time I read "sugar" I just wanted to

20
Number of eye rolls I had over the at times juvenile dialogue. Addison was only 21 years old, so I can excuse some instances. But her behavior really didn't endear me to her. She's been through hell, and I wanted to feel for her. I truly did. But she just drove me crazy at times with her childish tantrums and behavior.

3
Number of times I almost DNF'd this book. As much as I wanted to like this book, the negatives definitely outweighed the positives for me. The story flow seemed choppy at times. The jumping between Past and Present would have worked if it was just with Addison. But when it had the same thing of an event from Cade's past, it didn't really work. The progression of the relationships between Cade and Addison, and Addison and Jackson weren't believable. At least not in the time frames it happened in.

1
A character that I truly wish was killed off.

The ending with Britney being responsible for revealing Addison's location which lead to her kidnapping and brutal torture did not make sense to me at all. I find it hard to believe that a MC would allow her to just get out of town. The excuse of not hurting women did not do it for me. It's a Motorcycle Club that isn't exactly known for their legal and moral activities. And this is where they draw the line? Really? Or maybe it was just my own wishful thinking that she be killed off? Punished? Something! Anything! But just telling her to leave town and not come back was letting her off so easy for what she did. I don't even know. I freaking hated her.

(spoiler show)



What worked for me

Cade. Well aside from the "sugar" business, he was sexy as hell. I seem to have a soft spot for the dirty talkers, and he really delivered on that end.

 

Sugar, if I wanted my dick wet, I could get it wet anywhere, with anyone. I don’t want my dick wet. I want it fuckin’ drenched, drippin’ and surrounded in you."



Spike
I love me an asshole. The only thing better than an asshole, is a tatted and pierced asshole. And Spike is rumored to have some interesting "spikes" in some VERY interesting areas.

The sex
It was hot. At least I think it was. Maybe? I got so frustrated with so many parts of this book that I skimmed through a lot of it. Sex included.


While the book didn't quite work for me, I will gladly pick up Bella Jewel's next book because I think this may have been the case of a debut novel and working out the "new book" kinks.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get intimately acquainted with Spike's spikes. Well, maybe not intimately intimately. But I have a VERY good imagination. I'll make do. And I thank you

Review: Madeleine Abducted by M.S. Willis
Madeleine Abducted - M.S. Willis


3.5 stars

There was light in him, one so bright it could illuminate the entire night sky if only it wasn't covered over by the shadow of his darkness.


Well...hell. This book...Damn. I struggled with my rating on this one. There were things I loved, things that disturbed the ever loving fuck out of me, and a few things I could have gone without. I love a dark romance, and this book definitely delivered on that front. This is not an easy read by any means. It's dark, gritty, disturbing, somewhat erotic, and not a book I'll be forgetting any time soon. The author does not play around. She tells you exactly what you're in for with the epilogue.




Madeline is a talented yet an incredibly sheltered young cellist. When her talent catches the eye of a certain man, her life takes a dark twist. She is taken from the only life she knows, and is thrown in to a den of vipers where depravity, violence, and brutality become her new surroundings.

Taken by a madman and given as a gift to his son for his 25th birthday, Maddy finds herself in the middle of a deadly game of power. While her new Master might not be quite as evil as the man that kidnapped her, she knows that he's just hiding a different type of darkness.



Aaron is The Estate executioner. While he doesn't blink an eyelash when meeting out death, he's inexplicably drawn to Maddy's innocence. While his brutality is the key to keeping her alive

I promised you pain for pain, Madeleine, and it only makes my cock harder when you fight back. Keep writhing beneath me, it’ll only help me along as I fuck your body and as I fuck your mind."


The man that he hides beneath the violence and death seems to come out in her presence.

Dream of me, Maddy. See me as I want to be; not the nightmare who torments you, but the devoted and mystified man who worships at your feet."


I loved Aaron. While he was not a white knight, he still had this soft side to him. It didn't come out very often, but when it did...*sigh*

I’m not a good man, Maddy. I’ll never be a person worthy of you, of the beauty and light you provide to this world. I kill, I steal, I lie and I cheat. I take pleasure when I bathe in the blood of another man’s demise, when I watch the life drain from their eyes as they die. I enjoyed you as well, Maddy, not when I had to hurt you, but when I took things from your body that weren’t mine to take. I’ve done nothing for you, Mouse, nothing but what I wanted to do."


But then again, I always do seem to go for the tortured and broody ones.

I loved the author's writing style, it was almost poetic at times. There was a flip side of it for me though. I felt it was a bit much at times. There was almost too many descriptive sentences. I lost count of the many different ways that Aaron's green eyes came across. It was a bit much for me. At times it almost read like a historical to me. I struggled to remember that this is set in a modern setting.

The brutality. I am not a virgin to dark and gritty reads, but some of the scenes in this book disturbed even me. The event that takes place at 89% for instance. It takes A LOT, and I do mean A LOT to truly disturb me, but fuck...that scene still fucking haunts me.

The romance. This took a while to really get into. It took a backseat to a lot of other things that were developing in the first half of the book. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting instant Stockholm here. This is not really a complaint, but I do feel it necessary to mention.

Aaron's background. We didn't get much except for little hints and words. This is a continuing series, so maybe it will be covered in the future books.

Aaron's father. Holy shit! Holy fucking shit! I have never...and I mean never spent so much time picturing killing a fictional character in quite such brutal fucking detail as I did here. The man was a sadistic asshole. The things that he did...Holy shit...just holy fucking shit. This book had some of the most brutal and descriptive scenes I have read in a while (And I've read and loved Captive/Seduced in the Dark, SKALS, and all of Madeline Sheehan books. I'm not exactly a fucking innocent here). I was left gaping, reeling, and so fucking disturbed I almost felt like I needed to take a break after reading those scenes. FUCK!

On a lighter note, I loved that even though Maddy was innocent, sheltered, naive, and in an impossible situation, she still came across as strong. Aaron was a great hero as well. My heart broke for him and his struggle. He tries so hard to protect Maddy from the brutality of The Estate, and when he failed at certain times, it was heart breaking.

In short, although this wasn't quite the amazing 5 star read it was to many of my GR friends, I still enjoyed it thoroughly. With the little peaks the author gave us of Xander, I cannot wait for his book next.

Review: Love and Let Die (Masters and Mercenaries #5) by Lexi Blake
Love and Let Die - Lexi Blake

4 stars

 

 


He’d been a different man with Charlotte, a softer man, a man who might have had a future.

If there was one thing she’d learned in her lifetime, it was that the world was a game. She would win or she would die.


When I read the first book in the Masters and Mercenaries book, I knew, I just knew that I had to, I needed, I had to have Ian's book.

I'm pretty sure I got to a point where all I had to do was think of Ian's name and my mind was all

So needless to say, my anticipation and my hopes have gotten quite high in 5 books' span. I don't remember the last time I pre-ordered a book and then spent hours staring at my Kindle willing it to come in. Did this book meet my expectations?

Not quite...


IAN

The bigger they are, the bigger they fall. That's kind of the idea I had built up in my mind for Ian. He was always so cynical with love with all his friends. I was waiting for a woman to come in to knock him on his ass. So when 5 years later his dead wife shows up at his office, he gets thrown for a bit of a loop.

Charlie

I absolutely loved Charlie's personality from the last book. She was spunky, tough, and kick-ass. I just knew that she was going to be even better in her own book. She had been through so much in her life and at the hands of her father. And when she was forced to betray Ian five years ago in order to save herself and her sister, she has spent those years apart trying to atone for her actions.

A girl had to have a hobby. Hers just happened to be causing chaos for some of the world’s worst terrorists and criminals. It was fun.


She made plenty of sacrifices, and even stood in front of a bullet for a member of Ian's team in the previous book. All in hopes for earning the right to be back in his life.


When Ian is force to work with Charlotte since she holds the key information he needs in order to finally get to the rogue agent responsible so much of his past turmoil, he finds it hard to fight his attraction to her. Even though he should hate her for what she did to him, he can't help but still feel the pull between them.

He was going to kill her. He was going to wrap his hands around her pretty throat and squeeze. Except the minute he had the vision of killing his back-from-the-dead wife, she was suddenly naked and he wasn’t thinking about throttling her anymore. Maybe he could fuck her to death. That would be a better way to go.




The one thing that I have loved in Lexi Blake's books in the past was the super steamy love scenes. You could just feel the burning passion between the couples when you read it. I couldn't seem to get the same thing here. The sex scenes between Ian and Charlie read almost mechanical to me at times. Like insert slot B into slot A, moan, breath, *insert dirty words here*, rinse and repeat. It took Ian pretty much the entire book to finally open up some. So maybe that was what was missing for me? I'm not even sure. Then again, this also might have been the case of my high expectations just being too high? Who knows. What I do know that is that in all the build up to Ian's book, it didn't quite meet my expectations in that.

I really liked Charlie. The way that she fought for her sister, and then fought her way back to Ian melted my heart. She took on so much abuse, and she took it all from Ian too, in order to make up for her mistakes. She was understanding, and sweet, yet at the same time maintained a lot of her strength.

The other thing that I found lacking was the romance. At times I found that the romance took a backseat to the suspense. Don't get me wrong, the story was action packed and entertaining. I guess I just wanted something...more. I was even able to look past a few details that irked the Russian in me. A few stereo types here and there, and the name Dusan Denisovitch. (Dusan? Not a Russian name. At least none I've ever heard.) But I suppose that's just me being picky.

There is a HEA at the end, but a hell of a cliffhanger introduction into the next book. I was really hoping to get Simon's book next, but looks like we will be getting a different sexy Brit, Damon Knight.

Review: MacRieve by Kresley Cole
MacRieve - Kresley Cole

5 Hot and Hotter stars 



"You've let me tend tae your fire, and tonight it's searing me clean. I can be what you need."

He was so domineering. And a dirty talker. Apparently, she liked both.


That is totally me right now. Yes, fairy wings and all. Why you ask? Well, because I'm fun and eccentric that way. But mainly, it's because I just read a Kresley Cole book and IT.WAS.AWESOME!

I admit that after reading some mixed reviews on this book, I had put off reading it. I have loved every book i this series, and I was terrified that book 13 might take me off of my IAD buzz.

I should have known better. Kresley definitely did not disappoint! MacRieve turned out being so much better than I even hoped. Now this might have been a case of not having any expectations while going into the book. But whatever the reason may have been, I couldn't put it down until I read the very last page.

The one thing that I have to give praise for, is to this day IAD books continue to focus on only 2 POVs. While there is a whole lot of world building and action that takes place, I never see it take away from the main couple. There are no unnecessary side characters POVs. We get to touch base with many favorite characters, like my personal favorite Nix (and her bat), but the main focus is the couple.

The one thing that I definitely did notice change, is the books are certainly becoming much more sexual. Or at least this one was. Which you will not find this girl complaining about. But then again, I'm a smut connoisseur :)

So finally we get the story of the first half of the Hot and Hotter twins, MacRieve. And let me tell you, it was quite brutal. Poor Will has been through quite a bit in his long life, with the recent addition of his stint in The Order's prison and favorite play thing of a demented scientist.

When he escapes the prison, he's not quite right. And then his life takes a turn when he unexpectedly finds his mate.

Kresley Cole has yet to write a heroine that I haven't loved, and Chloe was no exception. I loved her sass, and the way she stood up to everyone, even MacRieve.

Of course we had to get some angst, when a particular secret comes out and throws their mating for a loop. My sexy MacRieve goes from sweet to complete and utter asshole in no time flat.

Luckily for me, I like that sort of thing. When the hero makes mistakes and treats the heroine like dirt, but then has to grovel to make up for it? Oh yea! I am ALL over that.

He also happened to be a dirty talker. Which if you follow my reviews, you know is an Achilles heel of mine. Plus the steam in this book? Sweet mother! I'd say this is the steamiest book in the series.




I can see why some reviewers found him to be a little excessive in his anger. but considering his past and what he's been through, I understood it, and it didn't bother me much. Considering that he was able to (view spoiler)[suppress his beast on a full moon for her (hide spoiler)], which was huge, he did his best to make up for his mistakes with Chloe.

We also get the set-up for Munro's book, which was a hell of a start. I'm really looking forward to finding out what happens there. But according to Kresley Cole, we will be getting Lanthe and Thronos next. Can't wait to see what that brings. I've been looking forward to their book since Demon From The Dark.

13 books in the series, and still going strong. This has definitely become one of my favorite PNR series, so a huge rec from me.

If you like tortured, dirty talking heroes and sassy, strong-willed heroines with fun side characters and amazing world building, snark, humor, and steam, you must check out this series.
