Darkest Night
Darkest Night: A Romantic Thriller (Sons of Broad) - Tara Thomas

This romantic suspense tale was certainly loaded with suspense, but the romance side fell short for me. Tilly and Keaton shared one kiss when they were fourteen and due to family drama and accusations, they don't see each other for eight years. Both characters are likable and they share a quick wit that adds some levity to the story. They're also intelligent and wise beyond their years in everything except for their romance. The idea that they fell into each other's arms so quickly with so much past drama between them just wasn't believable for this reader. I will say that their intimate scenes were well done and what I would consider steamy light. If the romance had been a bit more developed, it would've been perfect. That aside, the book has plenty of suspense and intrigue, which did keep me reading to see who would be behind it all. There is one edge of your seat scene toward the end, but I expected that. What I didn't expect was the disappointing lack of information about the Gentleman's identity or about how Jade ties into things. As I got closer and closer to the end of the book, I knew there would have to be a cliffhanger, but this one just stops, leaving a lot more questions than answers. It felt more like the end of a chapter than the end of a book and I can only assume that it will pick up from there in the next addition to the series. As it stands, I'm left with a bit of "meh" feeling about this one and haven't decided yet if I'm intrigued enough to continue with the series.

SAVING MERCY by Abbie Roads Trailer Reveal
Series: Fatal Truth Series 
Author: Abbie Roads 
Genre: Dark Romantic Thriller 
Publication Date: April 4, 2017


SavingMercyHighRes copy
He’s found her at last… Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man. His only redeeming quality? The extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch killers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his horrific past—and the one woman who might understand what it means. Only to lose her to a nightmare Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful—and in terrible danger. The moment Cain finds her the line between good and evil blurs and the only thing clear to them is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood—but is their bond strong enough to overcome the madness that stalks them?
Pre-Order Now




He drove past a gas station, a fast food restaurant, a person walking alongside the road. His foot hit the brake before his brain had a chance to talk him out of it. Mercy. Her hair was slicked to her skull, her clothes—his clothes—were sucked to her body, doing a shitty job of hiding her curves. At least the T-shirt she wore was black, not white. He pulled over to the berm and watched her in the rearview mirror. She stopped walking, stared at the car—knew it was him—but didn’t move. Could he blame her for not wanting to be around him after what he’d said to her? Not really. And yet, he couldn’t leave her alone and walking in the rain with Payne still out there. Not to mention that she didn’t have anyone or anywhere to go. She still hadn’t moved from her spot. He left the car running, opened his door and got out. The rain slapped him—frigid, bordering on icy, soaking his clothes and dripping in his eyes. The pressure of it hitting the wounds in his bicep and shoulder made him wince. But that was all the attention he’d give to the pain. “Get in the car.” The words came out harsher than he’d intended. She crossed her arms in front of her chest, lifted her head, and somehow managed to stare down her nose at him even though she was almost a foot shorter. “No.” She said the word as if it didn’t matter that they were standing in the middle of a downpour. “Get in the goddamned car.” This time the words came out loud and angry sounding. Like that was going to win her over. What was his problem? “Fuck you.” She looked miserable—all wet and shivery and yet feisty and taking none of his crap. He should soften his tone. He should try to be nicer. He should, but his inner asshole seemed attracted to her inner bitch. “Where are you going? No where. You don’t have any money. You don’t have friends.” His voice softened and filled with some emotion he couldn’t name. “You don’t have anyone looking out for you, caring for you, able to help you in a pinch. You got no one.” He sucked in a breath and when he spoke next his voice was soft and pleading. “Except me.” The moment he finished speaking he wanted to retract every goddamned one of those words he’d spoken. “I’m…Shit…” He ran a hand through his soaking hair. “Goddamn it. I’m a dick. Okay?” He softened his tone. “Now will you please get in the car?” Her shoulders straightened, her chin lifted, and she walked forward without looking at him. He expecting her to stomp past the car, but she yanked open the passenger door and got in. Seconds passed where he just stood here, getting even more wet, and staring at the back of her head poking above the headrest. “Now what?” He asked himself. Just what was he going to do with her? Drop her on Dolan? Yes. No. Yes. No. No. No. The last time he tried dropping her on someone she’d almost gotten hurt. If Mac hadn’t been able to keep her safe, he sure as shit wasn’t going to trust Dolan with her. He got back in car. Every inch of him soaked. He brushed his hair back off his face and wiped the water from his eyes. She stared out the passenger window, refusing to look at him. He reached over and touched her shoulder. Underneath his hand, her body tensed, then trembled. Shit. Was he scaring her? He wrenched his hand off her and wanted to use the damned thing to slap himself around a little. Maybe then he’d get it through his stupid brain that she was fucking frightened of him. Too many words flooded his mind and he didn’t know which ones to say. The I’m-sorry ones. The I-won’t-hurt-you ones. The I’m-an-asshole ones. The I-don’t-know-what-to-do ones. She turned to him. Rain slicked her cheeks. Or was that tears? Her beautiful eyes were the color of tropical waters—deep and fathomless. He held up his hands in a show of surrender and she flew across the console at him. He closed his eyes, braced for the blows, but none came. Instead, slender arms wrapped around him, her hair, cold and wet dripped against his chest, but her cheek over his heart was warm—so warm. Maybe he’d had a stroke or something because this felt like she was hugging him. And that couldn’t be. Could it? He opened his eyes and looked down at her. Yep. She was wound tight around the front of him. And suddenly his brain let him feel the total sensation of it. Of being held tight as if he mattered to her. He let his arms fall around her and squeezed, pressing her tighter to him. Damn, this felt good. She felt good. It was oddly comforting to have her clinging on to him so tight. He closed his eyes and memorized the pressure of her arms around him and the way her hands pressed into his back. The subtle ripple of her spine and ribs underneath his fingers, the way her skin felt warm against his when every other part of him was cold. If he’d been given a Stop Time button. This was the moment he would’ve used it. Here, holding her—the gentle lullaby of rain playing in the background—was the only perfect moment of his entire life.

"Beyond Shame" by Kit Rocha -- A Review
Beyond Shame - Kit Rocha

So, I picked up Beyond Shame as a freebie on Amazon (which I think still is by the way), and while it did take me a little while to read that was more so due to personal reasons rather than book being slow. In fact, it moves quite fast, and in a good way. This is the first book of the series, and it focuses on Nicole and Jasper—or Jas. Jasper is kind of like Dallas’s right hand man and second in command of the group. Nicole is literally thrown into this area of Sector Four from the City (Eden). With the way is set up, it really gave me a similar feeling to Stacia Kane’s Downside Ghosts series—which I liked. There wasn’t that much in world building per se. However, I think that was more because this was, at the end of the day, still a Romance, and so, a lot of the focus was on Nicole and Jasper’s relationship. While I don’t want to say that it was perfect, because, like I said, it does move fast, they have a relatively good relationship. For once I was able to find a portrayal of a BDSM/”Bad Boy” Romance where the male character is redeemable and isn’t grating on my nerves. Huzzah!! There was great push and pull from them, both and emotionally and even sexually.

Jasper is a great character. He isn’t over possessive or going on a “You are mine” type of thing in an over the top kind of way. He really is about pleasing Nicole and helping her kind of figure out what she likes, doesn’t like, etc. I liked that about him. Again, he didn’t make me want to slam my head against the wall. That makes me really, really happy.

Nicole kind of came into her own too. I do like the fact that she is fresh faced and new to everything outside of the city. I do like the fact that she came into it without having to completely sacrifice her personality or who she was as a person. She wasn’t out to necessarily be like the other woman in the group but find out she was while still being apart of the group—if that makes sense.

The sex scenes were hot. Hahah. They were hot, well-written, and well done. Loved it.

I don’t really have anything bad to say about this book. I will say when you step back and realize that it does kind of take place over a couple of weeks, it does seem like Jasper and Nicole moved fast (at least imo) but  I think that was apart of their personalities at the same time and what were they about.

Once And Always
Once and Always - Elizabeth Hoyt writing as Julia Harper

     Arc provided by Forever (Grand Central Publishing) through Netgalley


                        Release Date: February 24 th


This was basically an okay read...

The beginning was great in a, "I don't ever want to stop reading it" that kind of great.


Great chemistry between the two leading characters, plus a great number of secondary characters led me to expect a different kind of story: one that I would have devoured in one sitting.


Unfortunately after a strange and silly situation of exchanged luggages, Sam and May find themselves stuck in a somewhat stereotyped eighties romance: Sam ends up being a little too Neanderthal for my tastes.

He likes to boss around and especially favourites the word "Mine".

You see where this is going..


As to May or Maisa, I found her a little lacking in character development. In the end I wanted more from her that simply her bouts of bad humour.


The secondary characters were okay, but with the exception of Karl's with his man-bro's thoughts, they really weren't that memorable.


The thriller parts weren't that engaging, and the hot and steamy ones _ I can't believe I am going to say this _ although extremely hot, ended up being tiresome in a plot that had little else to give, you know?

The thing is, when the story starts, Sam and May already have _or had _ a story, so we're not able to see those first moments in their relationship, and for me, their romance feels somewhat lacking because of that.

Maybe if the story had been cut shorter I wouldn't feel that way, but as it was, I was more than ready to be done with it.


In the end this ended having one too many stupid to live moments, more appropriate to a new adult story, than an adult romantic contemporary romance.


The writing however was flawless as is normal with Elizabeth Hoyt's novels.
