The King by Skye Warren is live!

Wanted everyone to know The King is live!!! I haven’t even read it yet. Stay tuned for my review:)

BLURB 

The highest stakes…

 

My father gambles every night, falling deeper and deeper into debt. When he hits the bottom, he places a new bet: his daughter. I’m his entry bet to the biggest underground poker game.

 

The players are politicians and mafia men, every kind of danger around a velvet-covered table. But it’s only one man who makes me shake.

 

The man I once thought I loved.

 

The man who betrayed me.

 

His eyes meet mine with dark promise. And when he puts down his money, I know I’m going to lose more than my body. I’m going to lose everything.

 

THE KING is a spin-off novel of the USA Today bestselling Endgame series about Damon Scott

Rule Him by Gisele St. Claire

I received an ARC for an honest review.
This is one of the smartest student/teacher romances that I have ever read. I fell in love with both characters right away. Candy…bravo to Ms. St. Claire for that fabulous name! Candace Appleton! I love it!!! She is to mature for any of the boys her age. In walks the new English teacher. They have instant chemistry, physically and of intellect. She wants to be a writer and he recognizes her passion from their first study session. Their romance plays out so organically. Of course being a forbidden love type of book, they run into obstacles, but again, so beautifully written. It is with a satisfied sigh that I whole heartedly recommend this yummy book!

Small Town Scandal by Daisy Prescott


I received an ARC for an honest review.
I have never read anything by Daisy Prescott, and I usually don’t like second chances romances. But this one won me over. I usually get caught up in the heart ache and the time lost. The story was just so believable. Kids, pressured apart by parents and familial stupidity. Now coming into their own. They tackle their feelings, the town, her reputation, and how she feels she is seen. Every chapter was titled with a derogatory name for a woman such as slut, easy, etc. That was very sobering for me. It hurts to think of the double standards for men and women. The author did a great job of driving this point home.
The love story was beautiful. Their rekindling was heart warming and full of chemistry. All in all, this was a really fun read!

Wicked White by Michelle A. Valentine

Is it me?? Am I just in a bad mood or something? This book was super good til about 70% through. I loved it. But then…I won’t tell you what happens, just that stupidity takes over these characters. It’s annoying because everything was sweet and real, but anyone with a brain would not get caught up in the confusion. I guess the author needed a conflict in the story and I get it, but it was rediculous, and in my opinion, not well thought out. I know I’m being cryptic and I’m sorry, but I don’t want to ruin it for anyone. At the end of the day, it was still a good book, mostly.

Black Forever by Victoria Quinb

 Betrayed…Misled…

I am so upset right now. I am 50% done with this book and at book 4, I have never been so tempted to give up! There is NO loyalty here! I hate that he betrayed her, wheather he technically did or not. And I feel betrayed. I bought into the beautiful, loyal man/Dom that wouldn’t even entertain deceiving a sub that he didn’t care about from book 1. So I thought, yes, he would be honorable. What went wrong? And she begs him to take her back as he’s hitting on another woman! Seriously??!! My stomach just hurts!!!

I just finished the book, and I am completely disappointed. If you read my blog, you know I hate giving bad reviews. I rarely do it. But I feel horrible. It seems that when you go back and read carefully, Caloway never actually cheated on Rome, but he lied to her and engaged in erotic BDSM play with other women. It reminded me a smidge of Christian and the psycho sub that he bathed, except that was once and there was no deception. And he didn’t blame Anna for it. Ugh!!! I’m sorry to do this, but I didn’t like this book for that reason, and had I know this was where this was going, I wouldn’t have read the series.

Black promise by  Victoria Quinn

Let’s just say I want to seriously wound Caloway. I just finished the book and I am mad as hell!!! Was it a good book? Yes? Was it steamy? Yes? Was it compelling? Yes! But…what?the?heck!!! I am on the fence as to weather or not this is a forgivable offense. I have to go on to book 4 and I’ll let you know.

Black diamond by Victoria Quinn

This is book 2 in a trilogy. While book one ended on a cliff hanger, book 2 did not. And for that, a big thank you to Victoria Quinn!!! I loved this book!! The relationship between Calloway and Rome is so natural and beautiful. This books follows Rome and Calloway as they progress in their relationship. He still hasn’t revealed his true nature as a Dom and his ownership in a BDSM club. As he hopes to ease her into the lifestyle and eventually show her this world, she falls in love. The question is, is the Cal he is with her the real Cal or is it his dominant nature.
I LOVED this book!!!! And I just saw book 3 is out, so bye!!!
