REVIEW TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Dark Desires (Pure Ones #3) by Aja James
Dark Desires (Pure Ones #3) - Aja James
Dark Desires is the second book in this series that I have read, although it is number three in the series. Ryu and Ava meet on a plane, where Ava fights a losing battle with her thoughts about him. They are both on their way to Japan, where Ava will be working to try a find a way to prolong, or even create, health. This is personal for Ava as her father suffers from Parkinson's. Ryu is there to put an end to the research, because it isn't all above board. He has a job to do, but his feelings for Ava get in the way. As well as the current story, we also get Ryu's story from a series of flashbacks.
 
Now, I enjoyed this book, I did. However, I'm thinking maybe I prefer the Pure Ones to the Dark Ones, or maybe I just haven't read THE Dark Ones story that makes me go weak at the knees. Pure Healing blew me away whilst this one I enjoyed. Does that sound bad? It's not meant to. The story is excellent, although the climax is quite abrupt. The characters are likeable, with Ava not being afraid to speak her mind, which made an excellent change. The world-building is superb, and there are cameos from some of the Pure Ones too.
 
On the whole, this was an amazing read that I have no hesitation in recommending. It just didn't blow me out of the water like book one did.
 
* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

stunning follow up!
Hard to Get - Jaclyn Quinn
I was gifted my copy of this book, direct from the author. That I write a review was not required. We met Gabe and Nate in book one, Hard to Let Go. You don't NEED to have read that before you read this one, but it will give you a better picture of Haven's Cove and the people in it, and why Gabe is in town. But you SHOULD read it, not least because that is a stunning 5 star debut read, but also because I said you SHOULD! And this is another STUNNING follow up to that novel! Gabe is Brody's best friend; brother in all ways but blood. Nate is hired by Brody. When Nate and Gabe meet, Gabe is immediately pulled to Nate. But Nate pushes Gabe away, and keeps pushing but Gabe keeps trying. Until they each see a different side to the other, and think that they can be friends, at least. While not quite as emotionally devastating to me personally as book one, I absolutely loved this follow up! Both men have been hurt before, badly and they deal with that in their own way. I'm not saying who does what but know that neither way is right or wrong, but it's right for that person to deal with their past in that way. When the full extent of Gabe's hurt becomes clear, I cried for him, I really did. I loved that Nate's family showed himhow it should be. Nate's hurt is no less painful, just different. I loved that it took a single line from a 5 year old to make Gabe see what and WHO he really wants. "Because that's what daddies do" I take it back! This book WAS emotionally devastating! It was just in a very VERY different way to book one. I loved that we got some Brody and Owen and Jonah too. His story is laid out here and I can't wait to read that one. I have a feeling Jonah isn't as happy as he makes out and Cameron?? Well that boy is in a world of hurt already. I always worry, you know, after reading such a stunning debut novel, that the next book might not be up to par with that book. But I need not have worried here. 5 stunning follow up stars! **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Release Day Review! Eyes of the Tiger by Patricia Rosemoor!
Eyes of the Tiger - Patricia Rosemoor

 

 

Jewelry designer Gemma Hewitt has a gift. Gems and jewelry speak to her, which inspires her designs, and also sends her on dark adventures across the globe as she seeks out historic pieces. After her mother is brutally murdered, Gemma inherits her famed jeweled collar, which she hopes will lead her to see the face of her mother’s killer and bring him to justice. Instead, she's thrown back to 1901 India where she sees the young woman about to be married with a pendant that matches her jeweled collar. When she's hired to find the entire bridal suite, she hopes she can use the jewels to save her family's fortune. Can she trust the handsome, enigmatic man who promises to help her on her quest, or is he the one she should be running from?

British reporter/photographer Raj Sinclair wants the bridal suite for his own reasons. Attracted to Gemma, he senses a connection with her as if he’s known her for a very long time. When danger stalks her, he will do anything to protect her.

The treasure hunt takes them to cities from the US to Britain to France, ending in India where the bridal suite is finally rejoined... and three reincarnated souls get another chance to make things right.

 

 

Eyes of the Tiger is chock full of suspense and intrigue as well as romance which keeps readers glued to the pages.  Gemma and Raj are strong, compelling characters that have a sizzling chemistry that heats up the pages while they struggle to with trust and emotional issues that keeps the turmoil high despite their attraction and a smoldering passion that refuses to let them ignore it. The relationship is kind of an all uphill battle between Gemma and Raj but the intriguing events that take place keeps putting them together so they can’t deny the romance.

 

The anticipation builds throughout the story as the danger and the intrigue continues to build with lots of twists and turns to keep the readers wondering until the very end. The author makes it all come to vivid life with well written words that paint vivid images and makes it easy for the readers to become lost in the story.

 

Patricia Rosemoor has a gift for using twisting fascinating tales with unique elements that grab readers attention and keep them absorbed with the mystique and romance of her captivating characters and Eyes of the Tiger certainly holds readers hostage until the very end and to me it had a quest or treasure hunt feel to the story that really pulled me along and made feel as if I was joining Gemma and Raj on their adventure.

Release Day Review! Betrayed & Seduced (House of the Cat #6) Shelley Munro!
Betrayed & Seduced - Shelley Munro

 

 

A pilot on the run. A warrant-taker determined to make a capture. The mating-dance that threatens to destroy them both… 

Warrant-taker Jazen Lav accepts one last assignment before she retires to follow her dreams. She’s hot on the trail of a runaway cyborg, but the path leads to the crew of the Indefatigable and they’re a tight-lipped bunch. Frustration steers her to an undercover gig as a nurse, which places her in the sights of the flirtatious Indy pilot. 

Nanu left his home planet at a young age, missing the last crucial elements of his training before he hit adulthood. The inner beast he thought dead leaps to life on meeting Jazen, taking him by surprise and tossing him into confusion. His inner beast insists Jazen is his mate, but she’s trouble for him, trouble for his friends, trouble for his future. 

Abduction and betrayal—not the best way to start a courtship, and that’s where the turmoil begins since danger stalks into the city with Nanu and Jazen directly in its sights… 

 

 

Betrayed & Seduced is one hot and fascinating read! The Indefatigable crew is back and I couldn’t be happier as the story starts off with an exciting event and keeps the thrills coming from there. Nanu and Jazen are strong characters with lots of sizzling chemistry that keeps the pages heated with smoldering desire and lots of smoking hot passion. The couple has some major obstacles to overcome if they want their happily ever after, but even that is in question until the very end as Jazen’s issues get in the way. The story immediately gets the adrenaline pumping and keeps the readers on the edge of their seats with lots of excitement, intrigue and a couple of betrayals that has quite the impact on the couple. 

 

Shelley’s charming and intriguing House of Cat world just keeps getting better and I have to say that Shelley Munro has outdone herself with this one, as usual she brings her world and her characters to vibrant life and paints such vivid imagery that it easy to become caught up in the story as the readers picture each and every scene and in this case she gave Nanu some very intriguing and sexy characteristics that set the imagination on fire right along with Jazen and I was totally caught up in their story from the get go and I couldn’t put it down until I had read every last word. And since she set up the next book, with some intrigue already, I have to say that I am a bit impatient to read Enticed & Seduced to find out what happens.

 

 

 

Betrayed & Seduced is the 6th book in the House of Cat series.

 

The 7th book – Enticed & Seduced is coming soon.

 

Betrayed & Seduced is available in ebook at:

Amazon

It’s obvious how built and muscular he is, but the moment he unbuttons his shirt and reveals his broad shoulders and chest, I nearly drop to my knees and thank baby Jesus for blessing me with this sinful view. Washboard abs that form into a delicious V have me moaning aloud. “Like what you see?” His cocky grin only adds to his appeal. Confidence is sexy in a man,
