I was a good girl.

I ate my vegetables, volunteered at the local autism centre and sat in the front pew of church every Sunday.

Then, I got cancer.

What the hell kind of reward was that for a boring life well lived?

I was a seventeen-year-old paradigm of virtue and I was tired of it.

So, when I finally ran into the man I'd been writing to since he saved my life as a little girl and he offered to show me the dark side of life before I left it for good, I said yes.

Only, I didn't know that Zeus Garro was the President of The Fallen MC and when you made a deal with a man who is worse than the devil, there was no going back...

This is Daddy Zeus Garro's story from Lessons In Corruption. A standalone in The Fallen Men Series.

My review:

What a beautiful story that's turned out to be. I rooted for the characters and for them to get their second chance right from the beginning. I loved the course that the story took but felt that the pace slowed down at a few parts.

I was thrilled about the whole Wilde family clan and to have them all back in this story. I remember all too well when Chase was mentioned in one of their books and it made me so happy that we finally got his story.
"'Team Wilde"'
There was much more to this book than what it first appeared to be and I was engrossed in how the story progressed.

It's as much about Chase's career as it's about regrets, second chances, families and struggles in life. I'm sure you won't be disappointed with this book because it was a darn good story that was hard to put down.

The Story:
One could say that Chase and Andi were each other's one true love right from the moment of their first kiss when they were still kids. But not every true love finds a happily ever after especially when they meet so early on, considering life takes different paths with school and jobs. The question now is if theirs will get a HAE?
'He's my best friend. I don't want to lose that. But this feels like so much more. It feels right. And he's worth the risk.'

Release Blitz: Ruthless by Michelle Horst

by Michelle Horst
Enemies to Lovers Series #4
Release Date: March 28th, 2018

I’m good at deceiving people. Too good.
I let people think I’m a bastard.
Then Willow walks into my life, and no matter how hard I try to scare her off, she keeps coming back.
But, everyone has their limit, and I’m afraid Willow has reached hers.
Why is it when you think you don't want someone they become the most important person in your life… but am I too late to show her how much I love her?


I tried so hard to fight for us. But some things can’t be saved.
They say if you really love someone you have to set them free. If the person comes back, they’re meant to be yours.
The only problem with that theory is even though he came back, he always left again.
How much heartache can one heart take?
How much rejection can one person take?
The man I love more than life itself has broken me.
That’s why I have to leave. That’s why I force myself into a new relationship.
But sometimes the devil you know is far safer than the devil you don’t know.

Release Blitz & Book Review: A Shameless Little Lie by Meli Raine

A Shameless Little Lie
by Meli Raine
The Shameless Series #2
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 27th, 2018

I did it. I admit it.
I fell in love with Silas. My bodyguard. My protector.
My new informant.

We’re playing a cat-and-mouse game. I’m not sure whether I’m the cat or the mouse, but I can definitely tell I’m in a trap.
A trap with no way out.

I’m not who everyone thought I was. The truth is out there, finally turning the lie about me inside out. I am the shameless little lie. It’s finally been revealed, and now even more people want to kill me.

As a presidential campaign hangs in the balance, a delicate web of international relations and economic stability at risk, power becomes more important than anything else.

Even my life.

Especially my life. I’m a nothing. A no one. Just a tool, remember?

But tools can be used to open locks. Cracking open the truth and exposing it could change the balance of power. Tip the scales. Make a presidential campaign turn on a dime.

Too bad Silas doesn’t believe me when I tell the truth.
And that may make him the biggest tool of all.

A Shameless Little Lie is book two in the Shameless trilogy by USA Today bestselling author Meli Raine.

My ear is stroking something so soft and smooth. It’s comforting and inviting, so I rub against the softness, reveling in sensation, sighing.
And then the something moves.
“Hey,” Silas says, his voice coming from above. “She’s awake.”
I open my eyes, then shut them quickly to make the spinning stop. The world is full of random objects that move in and out, forward and back, my depth perception put in a blender and puréed.
“What?” I whisper, his hand on my shoulder. I want him to stroke my hair, to bring me ginger ale, to keep me safe and let me relax.
“You fainted,” he says, voice somehow both taut with worry and gentle with concern. “Right into my arms.”
“You have good arms.”
“I like them.”
“So do I.”
I roll in his lap and look up into those bright eyes full of mirth and worry. “Can you sit up?” he asks.
“That bad?”
“It feels so nice here. I could sleep here forever.”
Someone clears their throat in the distance. It’s a masculine sound.
“She okay?” the throat-clearer asks from another continent away. Or maybe the front seat. It’s hard to tell.
“I think so,” Silas responds, easing me up slowly.
“I did not consent to sitting up,” I murmur, snuggling in.
“And I didn’t consent to being your pillow.”
“But you’re a good pillow. The best pillow ever.”
“Jane?” Silas asks slowly. “Are you on something?”
“On something? I’m on you.” My muscles go slack, body in need of this all-too-short moment to enjoy being at rest in a place of sanctuary.
Rumbling makes my head move lightly as he–is he laughing? “No. I mean, did you take a drug, or a pill? You’re acting very weird.”
“Have we met? Come on. You try going through what I’ve been through these last few days, then faint, and come out of it perfectly sane,” I grouse.
As I come to a full upright position with my back against the upholstered seat, I realize it’s not just me, Silas, and–oh. The throat-clearer is Duff.
Drew is behind him, their heads huddled together as they speak through the window.
“I’m fine,” I lie. “Just tired and a little weary from having my entire life blitzed to smithereens.”

My review:

OMG! Talk about ending a book on a cliffhanger!! There's no bigger cliffhanger than the one the author pulled here and I just hope that we don't have to wait too long for the next book to come out.

After that massive secret was revealed at the end of the first book, there's now so much more to consider going forward for everyone involved. But Jane doesn't get the time to process the big reveal because she can't even catch her breath when after every blow the next already awaits.
'”At what point do people break to the point of no return?”'
I'm still in the dark about who is behind all of this and who wants to hurt Jane, but names were mentioned and questions arose, so we'll see what will be revealed in the last book. I definitely have assumptions though.
'It's so easy to make someone believe a lie. And so hard to convince them of the truth.'
I really wish I could've given this book a full star rating but as great as it was in the beginning and how awesome it turned out to be in the end, it was a bit dragging in the middle and lots of the thoughts and words put in between conversations felt a lot like fillers, which gave the story a slow pace and had my thoughts drifting off a few times.

The Story:
Jane is still under protection due to all the death threats and attempts of hurting or killing her, but who protects her heart and sanity from the web of lies spun by her enemies and the media? When nobody believes you and everyone turns against you what life is there left to live?
'This is all nothing but a lie.
A shameless little lie.'
As I mentioned above, I liked the beginning and I loved the last about 20% but the story was rather slow most of the time due to very long and drawn out scenes and thought processes. I loved the quick conversations but the ones where after every spoken word a few paragraphs of thoughts followed, those just killed my mood.

I'm furious at Silas and I wanted to slap him so badly and shake some sense into him. I really hope he'll make up for this in the next book.
Now you can see how emotionally invested I am in this series =P
'Everything in my world is upside down. And there's a monster out there no one else sees, coming for me.'
Closer to the end it got very mysterious and tense which had me break out in a sweat *HaHa*. I really can't wait to finally get to the end of this series, although it will make me sad to once again say goodbye to these characters.

Release Blitz: Kiss Me Back by Sidney Halston

Kiss Me Back
by Sidney Halston
Panic Standalone #3
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 27th, 2018

The only thing hotter than the Miami sun is the sexual tension at Panic, the South Beach nightclub where love knows no boundaries.

Lola: I’ve seen the way women in line behind the velvet rope look at William Fox, like he’s an Armani-clad St. Peter at the pearly gates. Except Panic isn’t heaven, and this bouncer is no saint. He’s been tempting me to sin ever since I started working here, but Fox’s slick smile and bad-boy swagger tell me everything I need to know about him. Still, a girl has needs. And Fox looks ready to fulfill every last one—at least for a night. . . .

Fox: I’m not used to being ignored—especially by women—but Lola Daye is different. The pretty bartender with the red lips and icy blue eyes seems perfectly happy pretending I don’t exist. Too bad, because the more she ignores me, the harder I fall. So I’m floored when she answers my drunken, flirty text with a yes. Lola claims she only wants a fling, but after one kiss, our bodies are speaking the same language. And I’m ready to prove that what we have could be forever.

No cheating. No cliffhangers. And no dress code.

About the author:

USA Today bestselling author, Sidney Halston lives her life with one simple rule: "Just Do It"--Nike. And that's exactly what she did.

After working hard as an attorney, Sidney picked up a pen for the first time at thirty years old to begin her dream of writing. Having never written anything other than very exciting legal briefs, she found an outlet for her imaginative, romantic side and wrote Seeing Red. That first pen stroke sealed the deal, and she fell in love with writing. Sidney lives in South Florida with her husband and children. She loves her family above all else, and reading follows a close second. When she's not writing, you can find her reading and reading and reading. She's a reader first and a writer second. When she's not writing or reading, her life is complete and utter chaos, trying to balance family life with work and writing (and reading). But she wouldn't have it any other way.

Voyeur #5

They wanted this.
To strip us of our humanity. Devolve us back to our most basic forms.

Into creatures willing to spill all their blood, end all their lives, in the hopes of finally being freed.
Even if we die in our attempt to escape, Noah and I are determined to take as many of them down with us as we can.
Before it’s all over, we will all bleed for their sins.
All of us.

I count the seconds in my head within the darkness. On sixty-four, the lights come back on.
All the calmness disappears in an instant.
“Noah?” Ivy gasps, standing less than fifteen feet from me, where the mirror was.
I’m so shocked by the sight of her, I can’t reply. My eyes trail over her, over how they’ve dressed her. In a mini-skirt version of a royal-blue, old-fashioned ball gown, the corset top displaying those fucking beautiful tits I love. The skirt only reaches mid-thigh, and of course, they paired the outfit off with black thigh-highs and sky-high heels in the same color as that gown.
On her head, a headpiece made out of royal-blue and black feathers.
Her eyes glow in the strategically-placed lighting, a mixture of hunger, intent, and urgency that confused my addled mind.
“Noah,” she whispers again, eyes trailing my face and the creature they drew upon it. Or is she seeing deep into the pit of me, where the evil has already sunk deep?
Holy shite, they’ve done her up like an exquisite, exotic sex doll. Played up every single asset she has all with the goal of tempting whoever lays eyes on her.
Every twisted bastard and bitch that wants to fuck her before they kill her.

My Review:
'There's a voice in the back of my head wondering if this is it, if this is the end.' 
I can't say that I'm disappointed in this book because it did have some kind of good enough ending, and I'm sure if you came this far you surely want to know how it ends. So, go for it, it's very short to be done with in no time at all and you will at least know what happens with Ivy and Noah.

Honestly, I just think that everything went down way too fast in a blurry mess and ended too sudden so that it left a lot to be desired. After everything that happened in this series and all the questions I had and still have, the ending was not satisfying enough for me and did not give me all the answers.

Yes, the sickness and violence from the previous books continues in this one and my nerves were on edge but there was not as much tension as before and there was no relief for me in the end. I'm just not one of those people who likes open endings. I need closure, answers and a satisfying ending no matter if good or bad.
'We're facing a different breed of creature – the worst society has to offer.'
