Book Review For: A Vow of Thorns by R. Scarlett
A Vow of Thorns (Blackest Golden) (Volume 3) - R. Scarlett

 

' A Vow of Thorns' by R. Scarlett is book Three in the 'Blackest Gold' series. This continues the story of Tensely and Molly. I do feel strongly that you have to have read the other books to fully enjoy this one. There is also another cliffhanger that leads into the next book in this series.
In this book Tensely finally goes with his feelings and knows that Molly is his life. I like how he was 'stepping up to the plate' in this book. Molly too was stronger in the book and shown how much she has grown since knowing Tensely. Although they are still not catching a break and having to deal with strong issues with crown and the court more so in this book. This book does have allot more drama because of the issue they are face with the crown. But with that said, they are getting in some together time and showing everyone that they are a team.
Overall this is such a great series and I can't wait for the next installment!!!
"My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

The Woodsman by Belle Scarlett
The Woodsman - Belle Scarlett

This audio is like mixing up a big box of Kraft’s “cheesiest” macaroni when you are starving and too lazy to cook a real meal. You know it’s not good for you but it’s just so cheesy you can’t stop! Before you know it, you’ve downed the entire thing. Same goes for this audio.

 

Lily is on her way to meet her future husband who is some old coot with a lot of money who will keep her well. Never mind him though because she is way-laid (yep, I see what I did there) before that nightmare can happen. Her carriage has troubles and she meets a very large wolf/man who leads her back to a cottage where some sexy stuff happens but the lovefest is cut short due to a curse, or something, something that has to do with virginity. Lily was having fun and gets all sassy, even stomping her foot but Marrick (the wolf-man) stays strong. For a short while anyway and then things happen.

 

 

There is nothing unique about this story, it’s overly wordy and pretty corny. It’s not even super, sexy, hot. More like lukewarm and vanilla. Still, I found myself enjoying the audio production. It even has sound effects for ambiance! Usually these things bother me but it works well here because the levels are right. The crickets chirping in the background were especially soothing. There are two narrators and Honey Scarlett does such a fun job with Lily’s character that I couldn’t stop listening. Her accent was hilarious and spot on and I just loved listening to her. Leeroy Will’s delivery of Marrick suffers in comparison. His delivery wasn’t as good, the cadence was slightly off and at times his accent sounded a little like Shrek. Sorry, that’s my take.

 

Anyway, if you’re looking for an amusing, non-brain taxing way to spend two hours and 39 minutes you could do much worse than this!

 

I received a copy of this audiobook courtesy of the publisher and Audiobookboom. I hope they don't regret it!

Vein of Love (Blackest Gold) (Volume 1) - R. Scarlett

Molly was turning nineteen and that was suppose to mean ultimate freedom. But molly felt anything but free. Molly called September and said she was going to Stella’s for the birthday party Stella was having for her. She wouldn’t stay late as she had to work at the museum the next day. Fifteen years ago a ring had been put on Molly’s finger when she was six and no one could seem to get it off her finger. Michael came over to  say hi , he had been the guy who had went out of his way to make her comfortable the first day of ninth grade.But Michael had kept her in the friend zone ever since. Molly would get added strength at random moments and she could never control it. Molly had then been attacked by a woman who had snakes for her hair and just as she was going to bite Molly’s neck a man- Tensley came and broke her neck. Tensley was with a young woman-Lex- about the same age as Molly and they took Molly home Lex told Molly the thing that attacked her had been a gorgon and had her own agenda for Molly.Molly swung hard at Tensley with the poker in the stomach as the ordered they had to get her out of there as Molly was being followed. Then Lex introduced herself and told Molly they were the least of her worries.Lex also told Molly she didn’t have to worry they were going to keep her safe. Tensley then said three hundred years of protection for what? Tensley said he knew a lot about Molly. Molly wanted to know how Tensley knew about her. Derek was Molly’s father and he told Tensley to get out and Tensley reminded Derek of the contract that was made in his ancestor's blood. Tensley’s family had protected Derek’s family for three hundred years in exchange for a daemon who possessed the blessed eyes from Derek’s bloodline. Then Molly took Tensley up to her room and he told her he was an incubus, a demon. Then T^ensley told Molly she was his fiancee. Also that Molly didn’t know it yet but her eyes held a rare power. That as his wife Molly’s power would become Tensley’s as well. Then Tensley told molly Incubi receive power, energy and strength from physical contact. Tensley also told molly if she tried to hide he would break all her father’s limbs. Now Molly felt terror for her family. Tensley’s father came into his office and told him what Dubre Abaddan wanted and he also requested to see Tensley. Tensley knew not to make his father mad but he grew restless from taking orders from someone else. Tensley had been bred to take over the business of serving the Prince. His family was depending on Tensley to resurrect their name after Beau’s scandal. Evelyn had been with Tensley five years then a week ago Tensley told her he had to marry in an arranged marriage. She showed up at his office and told tensley to figure something out soon. Molly’s eyes white eyes glow when her emotions are heightened. Demons are not allowed to feel emotions. Molly’s ring had been keeping her identity hidden but the magic has worn off. Others are able to detect Molly now and wanted her. When Tensley touches her Molly feels something. Molly goes to a  group of demon hunters to help her break the contract.  When Molly went to the demon hunters she didn’t want anyone to die. But molly was making the situation between demons and hunters worse.

I liked this new twist on demons. I didn’t like how Tensley was a jerk but also understood he had to show no feelings. Also Molly could be very stubborn.The story kept my interest all the way to  the end then the cliffhanger ruined it for me so that brought this down to a three. I don’t care for cliffhangers in any form. I basically liked the characters and the ins and outs of  this story but the cliffhanger ruined it for me.

Blog Tour - Jordan Reclaimed

 

 

 

 

Dear Reader,

 

I know how much you loved the couples at Second Circle Tattoos. So for my next series, I wanted to give you more of the characters you have already come to care about. Welcome to Preload. For those who have read The Purest Hook, Preload is hero Dred Zanders' band. And yes, for all of you who wrote to me asking for the band members to each get their own stories after reading The Purest Hook, here they are. Jordan is up first and will be followed by Elliott, Nikan, and Lennon. I can't wait for you to get to know and fall in love with these men who grew up in a group home together and the women who bring them to their knees.

 

And for those who haven't read The Purest Hook, it doesn't matter because these stories are all completely stand-alone.

 

Love, Scarlett

Jordan Steele’s life began when he was ten. When he was taken from his parents and a house that was never a home. When he met his brothers, the other lost and abandoned boys in his group home. When he learned what friendship and family and love looked like.

 

Now he’s made good, touring the world with the band he and his brothers formed in that crowded group home. No one but his found family really knows the man under the fame and fortune, the scars he hides behind the rockstar lifestyle. Until he sees her through the windows of the National Ballet, dancing, and suddenly the world doesn’t seem so dark.

 

Aleksandra Artemov ticks all the ballet boxes. Father a legendary Kirov dancer. Check. Prepping since birth for classical ballet. Check. Compulsive control over the food she eats. Check. Principal dancer at The National Ballet of Canada. Check. But what she craves is freedom.

 

She craves Jordan.

Everything about him should terrify her. His size, his tattoos, his edge. But he doesn’t. He stirs her very soul. Jordan has nothing but himself to offer her, and he's never been good enough for anyone. Can he figure out how to face his own demons before he loses his light for good?

Excerpt from JORDAN RECLAIMED:

Copyright © 2017 by Scarlett Cole

 

He got it.

 

He finally got it.

 

He got why John Lennon left the Beatles for Yoko.

 

He got why Dred wrote a love song for Pixie.

 

From the moment Jordan’s lips touched Lexi’s, he couldn’t imagine anything else feeling and tasting quite so perfect for the rest of his life.

 

He ran his tongue along the seam of her lips and she groaned, opening for him. He thrust his hands further into her hair as their tongues touched. She tasted of wine and sweetness, and he couldn’t get enough.

 

While her eyes were closed, his were open, unwilling to miss a single moment of what was happening between them. He angled her head, and she rose up on her toes to meet him. He thought he was going to faint as the blood rushed from his brain to his cock, which ached for contact.

 

Lexi’s arms wound their way around his waist, her hands finding the way under his leather jacket and sweater to rest upon his back. Skin on skin. How he wanted them to be. Naked. Exposed. Nothing between them as he made love to her in a huge bed that they could stay in for days.

 

Except he didn’t have a huge bed. And he didn’t have the kind of room she deserved to stay in. He had an attic. And a box under his bed that held his most treasured possessions that nobody else would understand. A secondhand copy of Scales, Chords & Arpeggios, and the first birthday card he ever received from Maisey and Ellen. Random shit nobody else would care about.

Jordan pulled away slowly and looked carefully at Lexi. Her lips were pink and plump, her cheeks flushed, her eyes wide.

 

Jordan,” she whispered.

 

I gotta go. Bye, Lexi,” he said. He needed to get home and then drink enough to forget about her. Banish the stupid idea swirling around in his mind that they could have any kind of relationship. He should never have kissed her. It was hard enough to walk away before, but now that he had a clearer idea of what it was he was actually walking away from, it hurt all the more.

 

Wait,” Lexi said as she grabbed his arm.

 

The small voice in his brain told him to keep walking, but he couldn’t. Instead, he turned to see what she wanted.

 

Lexi grabbed a pen from her purse, the one she had given him to sign the napkin in the restaurant. She reached for his hand and turned it over so his palm was facing up and quickly scribbled something on it. When she was done, she stood on her tiptoes again and kissed his cheek.

 

Weakness was a new sensation, but he felt it down to his boots as, against his better judgment, he leaned his cheek ever so slightly toward her lips.

 

Good night, Jordan,” she said and bounced up the porch, grabbing her hat from the chair where Jordan had tossed it.

 

She paused in the doorway to wave good-bye and then closed the door silently shut.

 

Only when he was certain that she was definitely gone did he allow himself the luxury of seeing what she had written on his hand. It was a phone number. Despite himself, he felt a murmur of excitement that she found him worthy of a second date.

 

Jordan turned toward home. As snow began to fall again, he hurriedly made the short hike across the Don Valley river and ravine to his neighborhood, trying to halt the avalanche of emotions because of ten hand-scribed digits.
