Release Blitz: Savage Legacy by S.R. Jones

[Because facebook has very unfairly blocked my blog, Punya Reviews..., from being promoted on their platform, I'm using booklikes as a "gateway" of sorts so I have a link to promote. It's been over 7 months but I tried for the first 4 months to reach them through any means I could find without any luck whatsoever. Doesn't look like I'll get the block removed anytime soon, if ever. More on what happened can be found here.]

Book Review for Beyond His Control by Clarissa Wild
 Beyond His Control by Clarissa Wild - Clarissa Wild

 

Terrifying and Dark and Intense Read

 

Wow ! What a conclusion this was to this terrifying and ugly tale and another read that kept your heart pounding and had you on the seat of your pants the entire time never knowing what would happen next.

I honestly loved Natalie as she was fierce and protective and determined and one not taking her captivity lying down.She was strong and beautiful and smart and always watching and listening and calculating.From the moment we met her we new she was destined to be a force to be reckoned with.

Noah although a Patriarch you new he was different from the rest of them in the sense that he loved his community and its people but, not the way the system worked and the unfairness of it all and the brutality of it and that is why he always desired change and new he needed a queen to make that happen.

 

 

This story is emotional and it has a lot of moving parts and as the story unfolds those secrets started coming to life.I have to say we never saw things playing out they way the did and we just loved that.The chemistry between Natalie and Noah just burned hotter.We loved them as a couple.These two burned brightly!

Overall a terrifying tale that makes you heart sick and sad but, one so intriguing it kept you glued to the pages the entire time.Book one left us with one heck of a cliffhanger and I am so glad that I was able to start book two right after putting part one down as I dove right in with eagerness and new that this was yet another tale that I would not be putting down until its very conclusion.

Overall this was another amazing read and the story well written and sometimes reading something out of your comfort zone is just what you need to shake things up a bit and this story did just that.One thing about this story is that it all felt so real and that you were with its characters in that very place and time along with the good guys and the villains as well.Noah and Natalie took us for one heck of a ride that is for sure but, we loved getting to know them both so different but, yet the same in so many ways.Noah and Natalie will be a couple not easily forgotten.

Book Review for He Hates Me by Isabella Starling and Rina Kent
He Hates Me (Hate & Love Duet, #1) - Isabella Starling,Rina Kent

 

Omg ! this was one intense read.The story drew you right in from the very first chapters and kept you glued to the pages the entire time.I have to say that reading this story made me feel edgy and uncomfortable and if I am being honest scared out of my whits most of the time because Jasper scared the hell out of me right from the onset of meeting him.I could not help but, be drawn to the dark and dangerous man and I can see why Georgina is being drawn to the man as he's a bit of a mystery but,  mostly she craves his dominance and the darkness that housed within him.
 
Georgina is in a rut in her life every day is the same old boring thing but, after meeting Jasper her life is anything but, because Jasper is  utter chaos and the sexy as sin man has gotten under her skin.I loved Georgina she at first seems tamed and timid but, in reality she is a she-cat with claws.
 
Jasper is dark ,dangerous and killer for the mob but, now you can add stalker to his resume. Georgina aka Petal has gotten under his skin as well and now he is playing a very dangerous of cat and mouse with his prey Petal but, at this point it is anybody's guess who will come out on top as he is obsessed and protective of her all the while toying with his prey and at the same time plans to take her life at some point when he is done with her but, will he ever be able to be done with her? .That is the million dollar question....
 
The story was suspenseful and intriguing and had a cast of great characters that we thoroughly enjoyed.This story got off to a wonderful start and I can't wait to see what happens next.Omg ! Omg ! We just loved it !I loved this duo as they did a amazing job drawing us into their web of darkness !

ARC REVIEW Spectre by Shiloh Walker

SpectreYay! Reading Shiloh Walker makes me happy. Spectre is a stand alone, although I do hope Tia's brother will get his own story eventually, told in the third person but switches focus between Tia and Meric. I love the characters in this book. Meric "Spectre" was raised to be a killer, his father was ruthless and if Meric hadn't of killed him at the age of 14 Meric would be a soulless and ruthless as his father. Sarge found him shortly after and saved Meric and while Meric still grew up to be an assassin Sarge fine tuned his skills and taught Meric to trust and have morals and rules. Even after Sarge died Meric never strayed from his own rules so when Boston mob boss and leader of a white slavery ring offers him a job to kill the sister of the cop who busted his brother Meric knows he's not going to take the job band unless he does does something someone else will.

Tia had a difficult childhood with a irrational mother who hated her and after she died was left to an Aunt who clearly hated her too. Tia always knew she was different from everyone else and everyone else made it clear she wasn't "normal". It wasn't until she was older that she was diagnosed with high-functioning autism, Aspergers. It took Tia a while to find her "normal" but she likes her life now with her best friend and her brother, even though he lives in another state, and her job teaching painting to kids who are just like her.

Spectre knows the only way to keep Tia safe is to remove her from the playing field; after all you can't kill what you can't find so he kidnaps her. But he was smart enough and observant enough to realize the transition and move would be easier for her with familiar things so he brings her dog, and art supplies and with how organized she is it was easy to pack clothes and toiletries. I love that he cared enough to do this that he understood that it mattered. Tia is scared and confused at first but when Spectre explains to her what's happening and when she gets proof she's more cooperative. I love that they are both blunt they are straight forward with their emotions and fears their was no whining and hemming and hawing, and I love Meric's solution.

Overall, this was a great read. The action is intense and the romance is hot, with some light bondage play. The story as a whole was fantastic, I love Shiloh Walker's writing she writes and I completely become immersed in the story and invested in the characters. If you are new to Shiloh Walker she does tend to get graphic, one reason I love her, as the Warning that is attached to the blurb says Warning: This isn’t a snuggly, comfy read. The male MC is a hired killer, while the heroine is neuro-atypical. Some dark material is involved—the hero kidnaps the heroine. There’s also violence when he goes on a rampage against those who put a contract on her. Also references of abuse (not against the heroine). Also very graphic, erotic scenes with minor bondage play.

Book Review for Robby by Jen Davis
Robby (Cooper Construction #3) - Jen Davis

 

 

 

We are really loving this series and characters.We loved Robby and Matt's story as there path was not and easy road due to Matt exploring his sexuality and Robby's past and a whole lot of baby mama drama."We loved it all !"

I loved Robby already from the other stories already but, I loved him even more this time around he was such a love-able soul . Our heart broke for what he had to endure to get through his teens just to survive and the hard choices he had to make but, he rose up from the ashes and made something of himself and created a family full of misfits.I loved how Robby did not let his new life be tainted by the old one and how he remained sweet and kind and not bitter and someone who wallowed in self pity. Robby was my favorite character this round but, I still have a soft spot for Brick .lol

We enjoyed getting to know Matt while he was figuring himself out and how he never put a label on his sexuality just went with the flow and what felt good a right for him.

We loved of course seeing our favorite characters again and seeing them celebrating their new lives with each other and their good fortunes.We love you guys!

Overall the story kept us engrossed and turning the pages.This was one heart felt dark tale but, through Robby and his darkest times and dark days he survived and now he is making a difference to those in need. With your new life and your support and knowledge and your good graces you are making this happen hoping to create a better world.The story also just had enough suspense to spice things up and we loved it and we hope there is more to come in this series.

Recommend read to all and its series!
