What Doesn’t Destroy Us by M.N. Forgy

The first book I’d ever read by M.N. Forgy was from the Unsound Anthology she did with Chantal Fernando, and I have to say I wasn’t impressed. Bull appeared so weak to me, and my hope after reading it was that What Doesn’t Destroy Us would be better. I am so glad that that hope came true! This book was phenomenal! I was so tempted halfway through to stop and shout my joy to M.N. Forgy on Facebook because of how great the story was at that point. Everything from beginning to the end captured my attention and didn’t let go. Matter of face as soon as I’m done writing this review I’m going to start the second book, and I can’t wait because that ending left me wanting more! When I first read about Shadow in the novella in the Unsound Anthology I quickly saw him as a youngster […]

Thrown to the Wolves by Rochelle Paige

Thrown to the Wolves, scratch that, this series is pure gold. I had been in a paranormal romance slump and here comes Rochelle Paige with her Black River Pack series or matter of fact the first book in the series, Crying Wolf, and I fell in love. The books in this series just keeps getting better and better! Ever since his first scene in Crying Wolf involving Grace I knew I would like Parker. He might’ve been the younger brother – goofy sometimes – but he was always there whenever his brothers needed him and that’s a big plus for me. I am glad that Rochelle Paige refrained from giving too much detail on Parker’s personality other than that one scene in Crying Wolf, because then I would’ve felt that I knew everything there was to know about Parker, it would’ve taken away the mystery of who he is at […]

The Fear That Divides Us by M.N. Forgy

It was hard for me to really have the same excitement for The Fear That Divides Us as I had for the previous books in this series because I am such a hardcore Dani and Shadow fan and I really didn’t want to read about any other couple. The world that was created in the Devil’s Dust and my curiosity of Bobby and Jessica’s story gave me the courage to open the book and read it’s pages. From the earlier books I knew that Jessica aka Doc had an abusive past, but there’s a difference between learning little pieces of information from the characters that had an active hand in Jessica being with the Devil’s Dust MC and actually reading about what happened. My heart broke for both Jessica and her daughter for what they went through at the hands of the monster she married, and for Bobby for the […]

Tears of Tess by Pepper Winters

Where to start with Tears of Tess??!! First let me say that this is my first dark (like dark) contemporary romance. I remember how I was even introduced to this series…I was participating in a Goodreads group (I can’t remember the name) and one of the members claimed that she had just finished an was waiting for the third and final book, Twisted Together, to come out. I was intrigued because I’ve never read this sub genre before and this book had such high ratings. I soon added it to my TBR list in hopes of reading it. Well here I am! The first thing that grabbed me about Tears of Tess was the cover. My thought when I saw the cover was ‘Oh I love that dress she has on,’ lo and behold my thoughts would soon change once I read what the outfit represented. This book was out of this […]

Melancholy by Bella Jewel

I originally finished Precarious around the time that it was released and I was super anxious to read what happened after Santana found out about that shocking threesome with Maddox, Krypt, and Ash (hawt!!). Well, time passed and I sort of lost interest in these stories because I sort of forgot what Precarious was about, and also (mainly), I didn’t have Melancholy to continue on in the series. When I was finally able to not only get Melancholy but the last two in this series, I really had to build up the courage to begin reading this series again because Precarious sort of pissed me off with the love-triangle, and also because I had been having a bad rash of mediocre books fall into my hands. But, oh my goodness, when I say that I couldn’t put this book down for anything, that’s exactly what I mean. This book packed […]

The Diary of Bink Cummings, Volume 2 by Bink Cummings

I have been anxiously awaiting for The Diary of Bink Cummings, Volume 2 to hit my kindle. Ever since I finished The Diary of Bink Cummings, Volume 1 this book has been on my mind…every day. I happened upon Bink’s story one day on Goodreads, I don’t really know how we crossed paths…Oh yeah I am in a Biker Babes group on Goodreads. Anyway she’s promoting Volume 1 in the group, and I was kinda in a book slump if I remember correctly so I was skeptical about saying “yes” to reading her book as an ARC (it was a biography/memoir as well so I was even more ready to say “no”), but something made me say “yes.” Long story short I received her book that day and began reading it, fell in love with not only her but her whole family, and now here I am writing my review on […]

Susana and the Scot by Sabrina York

I really wanted to like Susana and the Scot more than I did. The synopsis gave me everything that I crave in a historical romance, so in the beginning there was no doubt in my mind that this book was going to blow me away. It wasn’t until I got to the part of where the motivations behind the heroine’s petty behaviors were revealed that my likability for this story started to nosedive into murky waters. I’m all for women who better themselves in opposition or in scorn of the men who’ve hurt them, but where I start to get annoyed is when dumb decisions that affect more than the said woman are being made when the said man enters back in the picture. After this realization I figured that I’d leave myself open to the possibility that the story and characters would turn themselves around and give me something that […]

Hard to Forget by Bella Jewel

Why was there even a moment of doubt in my heart towards Hard to Forget I have no clue. After reading the previous books in this series, I honestly didn’t think things could get better, but I seriously underestimated how dramatic a female bodyguard’s story could be! After first meeting Delaney, and realizing what it was she was fighting for in her line of work I was rooting for her to succeed, if nothing else but to show those men in her workplace that she can do the job as good, if not better, than them. In a way it took me back to Hard to Fight, when Grace wanted to be taken seriously as a bounty hunter. I found it extremely hard to tear myself away from reading this book. Delaney and Jax were more complicated than the synopsis lead me to believe. When things started to heat up between […]

Edge of Obsession by Megan Crane

With a hot cover and intriguing synopsis I was so excited to bust open the pages of Edge of Obsession, and to be struck by how amazing the storyline was going to be. Sadly, it was very early in the beginning as I was reading that I started to get the feeling that this book wasn’t going to do it for me and rarely, almost never, has that feeling let me down, but always wanting to give a story the benefit of the doubt I continued to read on hoping that the feeling would either go away or I would find something redeeming about the story. But let me back it up for a minute. I didn’t close this book’s pages indefinitely based off a feeling I had, I closed this book’s pages because of the dominant amount of description over the almost nonexistent dialogue between the characters. Yes, I understood […]

Sweet Soul by Tillie Cole

After reading the previous books in this series and the books out of Tillie Cole’s Hades Hangmen series I’ve learned to stop assuming where the storyline will take me and to just prepare myself to be taken along for a ride. Sweet Soul, took so many twists and turns that for a second I almost wanted to say, “No more!” simply because I didn’t know how much more these characters, let alone the emotions I’ve invested in Levi and Elsie’s story, could take. Each book in this series is unique in the fact that they each have their own treasure that needs just the right person to come along and uncover it. Right off the bat I would like it to be known that I’m not a huge fan of stories (in a series) featuring the younger siblings simply for the fact that there’s a possibility that I will always […]
