She’s smart, practical and married to her beloved job leaving her no tie for men, especially since Sebastian’s electrifying presence caress her dreams at night and his secrets can only cause Lacey Whitman inevitable heartbreak. Everything threatens to tip Sebastian’s control when he discovers she is his mate.

 

The first book in the ‘Dragon Mates’ series is a cute and suspenseful story with a surprising romance that readers’ can enjoy from start to finish. The characters are strong and compelling with the heroine being a successful woman and the dragon being a billionaire with an agenda. The chemistry between them sizzles and the passion rocks although neither is thinks their relationship is possible.

The plot is fast paced and keeps readers engaged throughout with suspense and passion and although this story could benefit with a bit more fleshing out of the details or a bit added story surrounding the evil dragon and his agenda, the story is a delightful, quick read with a beguiling view of dragons.

LJSPrettyRecklessBookCover6x9_MEDIUM

 

We were supposed to be best friends

 

But turned out to be worst enemies…

 

Penn

 

They say revenge is a dish best served cold.

 

I’d had four years to stew on what Daria Followhill did to me, and now my heart is completely iced.

 

I took her first kiss.

 

She took the only thing I loved.

 

I was poor.

 

She was rich.

 

The good thing about circumstances? They can change. Fast.

 

Now, I’m her parents’ latest shiny project.

 

Her housemate. Her tormentor. The captain of the rival football team she hates so much.

Yeah, baby girl, say it—I’m your foster brother.

 

There’s a price to pay for ruining the only good thing in my life, and she’s about to shell out some serious tears.

 

Daria Followhill thinks she is THE queen. I’m about to prove to her that she’s nothing but a spoiled princess.

 

 

 

Daria

 

Everyone loves a good-old, unapologetic punk.

 

But being a bitch? Oh, you get slammed for every snarky comment, cynical eye roll, and foot you put in your adversaries’ way.

 

The thing about stiletto heels is that they make a hell of a dent when you walk all over the people who try to hurt you.

 

In Penn Scully’s case, I pierced his heart until he bled out, then left it in a trash can on a bright summer day.

 

Four years ago, he asked me to save all of my firsts for him.

 

Now he lives across the hall, and there’s nothing I want more than to be his last everything.

 

His parting words when he gave me his heart were that nothing in this world is free.

 

Now? Now he is making me pay.

Excerpt:

 

“I don’t want you transferring into my school,” I hiss out. Melody would gladly file a transfer request, and Principal Prichard would salivate over the chance to snatch him up for our football team.

 

“That won’t be a problem. You guys suck so much ass, you have shit-breath.”

 

“Still smells better than poverty. You’re poor, right? Your sister was just bullshitting about being rich.”

 

When someone hits me with a stick, I run over them with a tank. I’m so mean to him I want to throw up. I hate this part of being me. The striking harder at all costs part.

 

“Just to make things clear.” I put the brush down, batting my lashes. “You’re not my step-sibling, foster brother, or a part of the family. You’re a stray dog. Last of the litter, most unlikely to be adopted, and a charity case.”

 

Penn takes a step toward me, and my heart is fighting its way out of my ribcage. The closer he gets, the more I realize that my heart might succeed. Penn’s eyes remind me of a snake’s. Mesmerizing, but inhuman altogether. They weren’t like that before.

His scent messes with my head. I want to reach out and caress his face. Kiss his wounds better. Beg for forgiveness. Curse him. Push him away. Cry on his shoulder for what we’ve done. For how it ended. For what we became afterwards, because I’m full of crap and he is totally empty.

 

We ruined ourselves the day of our first kiss.

 

Penn looks down at me. Time stops. It feels like the world is losing gravity, falling into a bottomless depth in space when he clasps my chin with his thumb and finger, lifting my head up. I can’t breathe. I’m not sure I want to, either. My towel drops to the floor with a thud, even though I secured it over my chest. I realize that he tugged at it intentionally. I’m naked. My body, my soul, my heart. All my walls are down. Somewhere in my head, a red alarm blasts and my inhibitions are getting armed, ready to fight back. I’m trying to decode his expression. He is amused, irritated, and…playful? The mixture of emotions doesn’t make any sense.

 

“Mess with me, Followhill, and I will ruin you.”

 

“Not if I ruin you first.”

The Reckless - David Putnam

This is the second prequel to the popular Bruno Johnson series that takes us back to his early years. Bruno is an LA County deputy sheriff who works in the violent crimes unit. He likes his boss, his colleagues & their current investigation. So he’s less than thrilled when he shows up to work one day & gets a double whammy. His old partner Ned Kiefer is back & they’re being seconded to the FBI as part of a joint task force tackling a surge in bank robberies. Oh, if only it was that simple.

 

Sure, being sworn in as a US Marshall is a kick. But it’s immediately clear their FBI counterparts view them as subordinates who must be tolerated. It’s a frosty welcome with one exception. Special Agent Chelsea Miller is part of the team and she & Bruno have a bit of history.

 

Bruno & Ned dig in & have some early success. But when they’re handed one particular case, they discover the task force’s true agenda. One of the gangs responsible for the robberies is made up of disadvantaged teens. There is little chance this will end well, making it a political hot potato the FBI would prefer to avoid. And for Bruno it will be a case that tests him personally & professionally.

 

What follows is an action packed wild ride with plenty of twists. The multiple story lines are populated by a colourful mix of cops, gang bangers, drug addicts & honest people just trying to survive in some of LA’s poorer neighbourhoods.

 

At the centre of it all is Bruno, a hard working cop who wants to make a difference. His world revolves around the little house he shares with 2 year old daughter Olivia & his father. He’s a decent guy whose good nature can sometimes be a liability. Bruno is besieged by people who want him to return a favour, keep a secret, save a friend, do a job, protect a loved one…..seriously, the guy needs to learn how to say no.

 

However, the result is a book that has to cover a lot of territory in 320 pages. There are so many story lines running concurrently, easily enough for 2 books. If a couple were dropped, perhaps those remaining (& the characters involved) could have been more developed as the author certainly has his work cut out to tie them all up by the end.

 

One thing is for sure…..there is zero chance of getting bored as the hits just keep on coming. And mixed in with the action are some great twists, lovely little shockers that will make you look at some of the cast with fresh eyes. Although this is book #6 the author provides plenty of back story so if you’re looking for a fast paced adrenaline rush don’t hesitate to jump in here.
