NOTE: Judge of Hell may contain triggers for some due to mature content, abusive situations, and harsh language

Fierce, loyal, controlled. Three things Judge became at a young age.

Enduring unimaginable horrors no child should, he swore no person would dictate his or his brother’s lives again.
Revenge fueled him, setting a path destined from the moment he and his brothers escaped their hell. Nothing would stop him from destroying the ones who’d wronged him, even if that meant giving up the only woman to ever make him feel more than the heat of vengeance.

He let Ellie go, threw her away, never knowing the consequences of his actions.

Twelve years later, she reappears in his life, and she has some hellacious secrets of her own. Ones that knock Judge on his ass and threaten his ironclad control.

His life quickly changes course. Priorities are shifted and sacrifices are made. Judge has a decision to make. Will he give up his incessant need for retribution? Or will he sacrifice something he never dreamed he could have, but desperately wants.

Or is it possible to have both?


I am a big fan of this authors books the more of them I read the more I fall in love with this authors books and each and every book we have read so far has been utterly fantastic!Judge of Hell Was an awesome story that shook me to the core until the very end.
I have really read some very Dark Romance books in my time but, this series is the darkest to date.I have to say that the story had me on edge the entire time and it also made me uncomfortable ,make me shake,made me grieve,brought tears to my eyes time and time again.
The story effected you emotionally it was impossible not to.This story was one of those stories that had you engrossed and enmeshed in this suspenseful story.This story gripped my heart and was so heart wrenching at times that I thought if I was not going to be able to finish the book out.
I always pick a favorite character and this time around mine is going to be Judge. I loved his character from the onset of the story as I loved his protectiveness, his bossy attitude and his sexy smile but, most of all loved that he was able to move beyond his past although it will never be forgotten and how much he suffered.We loved how he took to Maisy like a duck to water and loved that little girl instantly.
We loved Ellie as well she fit Judge perfectly she was the Light to his Dark.I loved that Ellie was a little bit broken herself not that she was broken to begin with or the tragic events that happen to her gave her but, it gave her another look on life but, now had a better understanding of what fear was and what it was like living with a constant fear.She was probably a better fit for Judge now due to all the pain and suffering she endured and would have a better understanding of the man Judge has become and the choices he now makes daily and why he does what he does.I loved the way Ellie loved her daughter she was fierce protective and would do just about anything to save her daughter even if it means going to the devil himself.
We have to say that well loved all the other characters as well especially those hardened broken men who think they are so broken that they deserve to be alone.My heart went out to each and every of those men for the all suffered from.We loved that we saw Judge heal right before our eyes and a sweet little girl named Maisy played a big part of that happening she was good for all of them but, most of all she was good for Emo and I have to say my heart melted more than once with his interactions with that little girl they actually made me shed tears!
This story had us on one heck of an emotional roller coaster ride with all that suspense both present and past and also for the tragedies both past and present.I can't even talk about Hell Night because it makes me sick and brings me pain.
The romance between Judge and Ellie was super hot! Playful as well as sweet.What I loved most about the connection these two forged is that she was the perfect balm to his tortured soul.We also loved that no matter how much time past these two never fell out of love with each other but, getting to know who they are now and mending fences between them is not and easy task but, with the love of their surrounding family anything is possible.
Overall a superb suspense Dark Romance read that took you on one heck of a ride and it was so emotional,touching,gripping and heart wrenching that you could not help be engrossed in this tragic story to the very end.I will say that the story stayed with me hours after finish reading it and even effected by dreams that night and not in a good way.
We loved the thrilling ride!
I need to go back and read book one with Troubles story because I need to see how all these broken men find their happily ever afters now....
Personal note- This story is not for the faint of heart and not for individuals that have triggers when it comes to excessive violence and rape victims.This story was tragic and effected men women and children.I do not recommend reading this story at night time.

Review ~ Great read
The Naturalist (The Naturalist Series Book 1) - Andrew Mayne

Book source ~ Kindle First


Professor Theo Cray is out doing sciency-stuff in Montana when the cops come knocking at his motel room door. Well, not knocking, more like knocking down. He has no idea what they think he’s done, but after several long hours and lots of weird questions they finally tell him he’s a suspect in a murder investigation and he’s more than surprised. And then upset because the person murdered is a former student. He starts feeling guilty for reasons that are weird, but understandable and these feelings lead him down a road he never imagined he’d travel – using his big science brain to solve a murder. Except, his application of science leads him to something so much bigger and more evil than even he could have predicted.


If you like science and murder mysteries then this is the book for you. There is a shitload of both in it. I’m not a science person. I’m not dumb, but a lot of certain sciences just go over my head and I end up with only a vague understanding and a headache for my trouble. This book is filled with Theo explaining science stuff and how he’s using what he knows to apply it to a serial killer, but somehow the author manages to mostly make sense to me. Excellent job! No, seriously. Ask any of my science instructors. They’ll tell you. Flashbacks to Chemistry make me shudder in horror and revulsion. Luckily, Biology wasn’t as terrible and there’s a lot of Biology in this book. I took off a bit for the massive amounts of science and some areas of slight ridiculousness, but overall it’s only a small deduction. This story kept me glued to the pages, wondering what on Earth Theo was going to discover next and if he’d survive the inevitable faceoff with the killer. Also, there’s a great buildup of suspense there towards the end. Yowzers. There’s even a bit of romance for Theo, but it’s mostly science, bodies, and trying to find the killer. I ended up liking this book way more than I thought I would. Great job!

His credit card showed he had a room at a hotel on the outskirts of town for another week in a half but he hadn’t been there the last two days.

I really enjoyed this book. I liked the pace and plot. I read this in one setting. I loved Sam and Maguire together. I was glad Sam could see maguire wasn’t lying when he told her he hadn’t cheated on her. I loved how close Sam was to her mom and Maguire to his family. This was a good romance and just enough angst and drama. I loved the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend it.

Re-released in a second edition with new content. The town of Bliss, Colorado, offered Hope McLean a second chance at life, a gift she cherishes every day. Her past was dominated by dark secrets and regret, most of which centered on a man named Christian Grady. All of that was behind her now, years of horror distilled down into the occasional nightmare or a random feeling of being watched. Surrounded by new friends, she tried hard to leave the past where it belonged—in the rearview mirror. Raised together, James Glen and Noah Bennett were the best of friends. They dreamed of growing up in Bliss, finding love, and settling down to share their lives on the Circle G ranch. James would manage the day-to-day operations of the ranch while Noah served the town as the resident veterinarian. Everything was perfectly planned out, until a woman came between them and their future shattered. Noah left Bliss for New York City and James was left to struggle to keep the Circle G alive on his own. Noah returns to Bliss on a mission to rebuild his life. When he sees Hope, he knows his return home was meant to be. Hope’s kindness shines like a beacon calling him to her. Unfortunately, he isn’t the only man interested in Hope. James is also interested in the beautiful girl with a mysterious past. He can’t be forced to choose between the woman of his dreams and his best friend again. As romance begins to bloom, a dark specter from Hope’s past returns to claim her. To save Hope, and themselves, James and Noah will have to rebuild the relationship they lost and fight for their future with Hope together.

We really are enjoying this series as it is filled with amazing characters and of course they fill the town of Bliss with their own brand of  men and women.
The story started out by drawing you into a plot of treachery and pain and suffering and loss.We loved the little town that was full of these eclectic people but, one thing is for sure that are just one big extended family full of oddities.
James has been living a half of life since his brother walked out of his life and that of his families.James coping mechanism has been countless women and loneliness.On the brighter side of things he wants the one girl he knows he needs to filled the void missing from his life but, is afraid of laying claim to her because his heart is broken due to his brother betrayal of leaving him over a gold digging conniving women who knew to play on ones emotional conflicts.
I found James to be all alpha and brash and sexy as sin and also someone who does not trust easily and one who runs from any kind of intimacy.
I found Hope to be sweet and kind and loving and wallowing in self pity but, also has taken responsible for the mess she has made of her life and is striving to change that.Our heart went out to Hope for the things she endure and the betrayals she experience and the constant fear she lived in because of her past .
Noah I found to be a little bit cocky had a sense of humor and was sexy as sin but, also is a changed man from the man he had been when living in Bliss in the past he now has darkness within him now.
We love the romance that developed between these two estranged brothers and one women perfect for them and the only one who will be able to mend the riff between the two as well as mend the heart for all parties involved.
We loved the plot the drama and the love triangles as well as the poly relationships with the bdsm elements.We loved the characters and their unique relationships but whats more we love the alpha men and their over bearing possessiveness and protective instincts .We loved that this town came together to protect someone in need and that was in trouble both the men and the women and proved they always have each others backs.
Overall we loved the story from beginning to end as the drama unfolded and the character's kept us enmeshed in the story and turning the pages.The story was about healing and forgiveness and right the wrongs of the past but, most of all finding the love of your life and the one women to make you whole once again and hopefully achieving your happily ever after.
A Recommended read to all !

Review ~ Decent read
Secondborn (Secondborn Series Book 1) - Amy A. Bartol

Book source ~ Kindle First


Roselle St. Sismode is the secondborn child of the Fate of Swords. Firstborns, depending on their family, may rule their Fate. Secondborns have to go into military service. Forget thirdborns – they’re killed if found. Fourth thou shalt not count and fifth are right out. Hehe I paraphrased a Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail tidbit there. I couldn’t help it. Ok, moving on…


The book begins with Roselle’s Transition Day. Most secondborns are taken younger, but Roselle is 18 when her mother sends her to do her military duty. Even though Roselle is basically royalty and the whole Republic has pretty much watched her grow up on some kind of Truman Show-like program, her life in the military will be brutal and most likely short. Everyone knows her face and secondborns from privileged families are hated by the other less fortunate secondborns. And there lies the danger to her. But others are manipulating her life behind the scenes and Roselle must stay alive long enough to change the Republic. Whether she wants to or not.


The beginning of this story is confusing as the world gets laid out for the reader. It took me awhile to grasp all the families, structure, terminology, and relationships. About the time I got all that down the story started to take off down the tracks and I was belted firmly in and definitely along for the ride. The characters are well-developed, the plot intriguing and Roselle is no slouch though she may have a touch of Mary Sue-ness about her. Just a touch though. There’s intrigue and danger and even some romance in this intricate tale of rebellion. The ending is a bit of a cliffhanger. Well, more of a transitional slope than an actual dive off a cliff. Roselle’s journey is far from over and it’ll be interesting to see what happens next.
