a 4 star scorcher!
Temptation and Treachery (Dangerous Desi... Temptation and Treachery (Dangerous Desires) - Sahara Roberts
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Using the official blurb, cos whatever I write comes out all kinds of wrong! Andres “Rio” Rivera became his ICE profile years ago. Cold and calculating, he never promises anything beyond right now. But when he ends up with a cancelled flight and a shared hotel room with the secretive Celeste Patron, the fire behind Celeste’s buttoned-up exterior melts every barrier. He may only have her for one night, but that’s long enough to make her every fantasy come true. When Celeste leaves, Rio returns to hunting a notorious cartel leader. His shock upon arresting the man is eclipsed when he discovers the woman he fell for is his daughter…and she’s pregnant with Rio’s baby. I was thinking, before I started this book, I really need a down and dirty book. One with instant powerful attraction and a good deal of heat, maybe a scorcher, just to lose myself in. And boy did this deliver! Celeste's attraction to Rio is instant and extremely powerful. her alter ego Vix strongly approves of Celeste's choice! They get their down and dirty on early in the book, and once they get their wires uncrossed, and Celeste realizes that Rio is trying to keep her safe, they get it on again! Phew!! Other than the scorching heat level, the fact that Rio is after Celeste's father for Cartel crimes, and that he might not actually be responsible for those crimes, I figured really quickly who might really be. I did not think he would put Celeste's life in danger. Surprised at that bit! This is, from what I see, book 3 in the series. I did not know that before I went in, so I saw some future stories playing in my head as I read this one. But it appears all that plotting and planning was for nothing, since the pair I set up together, have their own, SEPARATE books! I would like to read them, especially if they are as hot as this one! A very well written, well needed.... 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

About the Author:


I am just an average twenty-something following my dreams. I have a full time “day job” and by night I am an author. I guess you could say that writing is like my super power (I always wanted one of those). I am the lover of wine, sushi, football and the ocean; that is when I am not wrapped up in the literary world.


Please feel free to contact me to chat about my writing, books you think I’d like or just to shoot the, well you know.

four solid stars
Sun Storm (The Gathering Storm Book 1) - Marlow Kelly
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. Renting a cabin in the middle of a snow storm might not have been Marie's best idea, but her solar panel needed testing in such conditions. When four men invade that cabin, saying they need the panel, she knows her life might be over before she got her panel tested. David is one of those four men. He didn't sign up to murder a woman in cold blood, whether or not she had stolen the panel, which he didn't believe. Together they evade the other three men after Marie, they learn just who they can really trust and they hope they can survive the storms coming at them. Far too long for the usual hangover cure, sitting at 250 odd pages, but this book landed in my queue just as I needed one and I used it as such! Because after 3 very heavy books, this was JUST what I needed. Told from every major player's point of view, we are fully aware, right from the start, who is doing what and why. There are no major plot twists, no complicated and difficult to follow plot lines, nothing too taxing on the brain. And I mean this in a bloody god way! It was a really easy read. Aside from Marie and David's story, there is, I think, the laying out of a plot that could follow through the other books in the series. Maybe. Involving Finn, Tim, and Michael, David's street brothers. I might be reading more into this than I should, but thats the feeling I'm left with! I've read a couple of Kelly's books before. I like how she plots and plans and, most importantly, delivers! A very well written, but long, hangover cure. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

4 solid stars
Cold Moon - Alexandra Sokoloff
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book three in this series, and you SHOULD read books one and two, Huntress Mon and Blood Moon before this one. It will give you a much better view or Cara and Roarke and what happened between them, and to each other in those books. Not all is recapped here. AND because they are both 5 star reads! This one, though? Not so much. Oh don't get me wrong, its still a powerful, really good read, it just doesn't have the same impact those two books did, on me, at least. Cara is, at least in the beginning, in jail and although they KNOW she killed more men, it comes down to one, single case. THEN, pimps turn up dead, killed with the same blade that killed the victim they want to prosecute Cara for and she is released. Then more turn up dead, and Roarke is left wondering if Cara is to blame, or the teenager who witnessed Cara's last kill. Cara's cousin is missing, and Cara herself is in the wind. Roarke continues to question himself and his career choice. He constantly questions WHY he is doing this, WHY Cara is so deep in his mind, and WHY doesn't he just, like she does, disappear. And I LOVE that. Because you never know which way he is going to go, and you are kept on your toes the whole way through. Told again from Roarke in the past tense and Cara in the present, it grabbed me, but didn't quite pull me along kicking and screaming as books one and two did. I STILL think there is that deeper connection for Roarke and Cara, and I STILL want to see how this pans out. It really is great being kept on my toes for that! A solid, 4 star read. **same worded will appear elsewhere**

great follow up to Murder and Meyhem
Tramps and Thieves - Rhys Ford
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. Rook is trying to go straight, but cousin Harold has his damn bird. Then he find Harold dead, and the bodies keep on coming. Dante just wants to wrap Rook up and keep him safe. This is book two in the series and it would help greatly to read book one, Murder and Meyhem, first. Not totally necessary, though. And I struggled with this one and it pains me deeply that I didn't love it as much as book one!! It's well written, from both Rook and Dante's point of view, in a way only Ms Ford can tell her tales. Those throw away last chapter lines that make you go "say what,now??" And make you question what you just read, and make me think I missed something. It's messy, what with dead cousins and heads in boxes and shootings and things. Its sexy in places, with the love the love the two men have for each other coming off every page and showing in everything they do for each other. And I did not get whodunnit til it was revealed in the book. So why did I struggle?? No flipping idea. I DID enjoy it, it just took me far longer than it should have. So, because of that, 4 stars.
