Stoned: Jewelry, Obsession, and How Desire Shapes the World - Aja Raden

I picked this book up after hearing about it on a podcast, and I'm glad I did. Each chapter is broken up into smaller sections so it's very easy to pick up and put down. Raden also does a good job reminding readers how each of the sections are connected, rather than assuming that you'll remember every detail from the book as you read.

 

The tone is very conversational and easy to read. Little to no background knowledge is necessary to understand each chapter. I found it useful to have my phone/a computer on hand while reading because there aren't images for all the pieces described, especially the Faberge eggs. The descriptions are good, but the pictures are better.

Billionaire Unbound: by J. S. Scott Free!
Billionaire Unbound: The Billionaire's Obsession ~ Chloe - J. S. Scott

Chloe Colter is finally able to fulfill her dream of getting married after over a decade of school to become an equine vet. But her dreams of a perfect life are shattered when her fiancé becomes abusive, forcing her to finally break away from a destructive relationship.
Life has always been simple for Gabe Walker…until the moment he kisses Chloe Colter at a New Year’s Eve party. He wants her, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Can he convince Chloe to accept a job at his horse ranch so he can see her every day and slowly watch her passion emerge as she learns to trust a man again?

The fire between Gabe and Chloe burns hot, but can Chloe finally let go of her horrifying life before Gabe and give him a chance?, Is she strong enough to reach out and take a man who wants her, doesn’t want to change her, and who cares about her exactly as she is? or will the emotional turmoil of how Gabe makes her feel make it even harder for her to heal, and force her to walk away?

Where the Monsters Live: A Tale of Revenge by Duncan Ralston
Where the Monsters Live - Duncan Ralston

How far would you go for revenge?

Synopsis:

When a six-year-old girl is abused and left for dead by a pedophile known only as the “Rabbit Man” due to the claw marks left on her body, police follow every lead but reach only dead ends.

Hungry for justice, her grieving father abandons wife and child on a harrowing journey deep undercover into Miami’s sex offender colony under the Julia Tuttle Causeway. His purpose is simple: to find the “Rabbit Man” among them, and put him in the ground.

Months later, with no one to trust and the pedophiles he lives among growing suspicious of his actions, he learns nothing is simple where the monsters live.

 

Hoppy Easter! Come see what I put in your basket...

WHERE THE MONSTERS LIVE is NOT an extreme horror story, but I still want you to have a little ‘heads up’ before you start reading.

The story is not super graphic in an icky way, but it's emotionally graphic. WTML will sucker punch you right in the feels. It's a disturbing story, and the 'uncomfort' level rises drastically if you have a child of your own.
I didn’t notice just HOW 'emotionally graphic' it was until The Dark Defender woke up to ask me what was wrong, and I had tears streaming down my cheeks.

 

At one point I thought I knew exactly how this story was going to end (we’ll talk about that once you finish reading). That wouldn’t have made it a suck story – but I am happy that WTML didn’t go for the ‘ironic twist’, and I’m very satisfied with how it’s wrapped up – there could be a little wiggle room JIC case the story isn’t done with us yet.

 

Full review posted HERE - come join in on the discussion of WTML!

Obsession - Amanda Robson

One rainy night on holiday Carly asks Rob a question and doesn't like the answer. A whole chain of events then begin to unfold from this conversation. Be prepared to ride the rollercoaster of emotions reading the points of view of Carly, Rob, Jenni and Craig, who are all so appalling that you'll hardly dare to peek at the words! I wouldn't like to meet even one let alone all four of them - a terrible foursome indeed. This book certainly kept me gripped the whole way through and I was very glad to get to firmer ground again afterwards. The constant description of "eyes" was a bit tiresome otherwise I would have given this the full five stars. After this book can't wait to read something else by this author.

Fantastic!!
Obsession: A Bayfront Billionaire Novella (Bayfront Billionaires) - Calista Fox

Obsession by Calista Fox is a fairly short read, perfect for those with limited time for reading.  This is a menage romance though, so it may not be for everyone.  Ms Fox has once again delivered a well-written book.  Her characters are amazing.  Roxy, Hunter and Nick's story is packed with drama, humor, suspense and sizzle.  This fast-paced story kept this reader glued to her kindle from start to finish.  This book does deal with abuse but it's in the past not occurring as you read.  I enjoyed reading Obsession and look forward to reading more from Calista Fox in the future.  Obsession is book 4 of the Bayfront Billionaires Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book that I received from NetGalley.
